=== ubuntu is now known as Guest86008
TeneCan anyone tell me how to persuade apt-get to install the packages that actually are available when one listed package is not, instead of refusing to do anything?  --ignore-missing does not work.00:01
Serraphyneeee: its searching for available drivers00:01
Guest86008都是 英文的啊00:01

ubottuGuest86008: 如欲獲得中文的協助,請輸入 /join #ubuntu-cn 或 /join #ubuntu-tw00:01
shibbolethTene: you could download the package with -d and force-install it with dpkg?00:02
Teneshibboleth: That would be rather worse.  Clearly I can make it work when doing this by hand, but I'm trying to make our automation degrade more gracefully when there's a problem.00:02
eeeeTene: what do you mean are actually available? if you do apt-cache search <package> does it show up?00:02
Guest86008ubuntu very good00:02
Serraphyneeee: it just finished and says using X.org X Server - AMD/ATI display driver wrapper from xserver-xorg-video-ati(open source, tested)00:03
eeeeSerraphyn: ok, open a terminal and type sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-ati00:03
Teneeeee: Yes, we're having a problem when imaging new machines and trying to install the initial package set, *no* packages get installed if *any* package is not available, which happens occasionally due to staging repository problems, typos, etc.00:03
Ben64Guest86008: do you have an ubuntu support question? if not, you're not in the correct channel00:04
FlannelTene: So, you're looking to install everything except the affected packages (and the packages that depend on them, obviously)00:04
Serraphyneeee: thats done, reboot time?00:05
TeneFlannel: Yes, exactly.  I could change our automation to run 'apt-get install foo' separately for each package rather than listing all of them on one command invocation, but that would be rather slower.00:05
TeneFlannel: According to the man page, --ignore-missing should do what I want, but it does nothing.00:05
balsaqanyone know why i am getting n "error trying to remove the trash" when trying to empty my trash in ubuntu 1404?00:05
balsaqand how to fix it?00:05
eeeebalsaq: what's the error?00:06
Serraphyneeee: I didn't say it but there are 2 other options on the Additional Drivers page from fglrx and fglrx-updates00:06
balsaqjust told u00:06
eeeeSerraphyn: it's ok00:06
camtronNautilus is super slow on my computer (Ubuntu 12.04, Nautilus 3.4.2). It takes 10 seconds just for the file manager to open after clicking the launcher icon, and often takes a long time to display all of the items in a folder. How can I find out what's slowing it down and fix it?00:06
Serraphyneeee: That command completed, what would you like me to do now?00:06
eeeebalsaq:  ls -la ~/.local/share/Trash/files00:07
balsaq"failed to delete item from the trash"00:07
balsaqwth is that00:07
eeeebalsaq: are there any files that don't belong to you?00:07
balsaqhaha um no i own evertything00:07
camtronAnd I'm not installing 14.04 because I tried it and it's unusably slow.00:07
eeeebalsaq: did you run the command?00:07
balsaqwhat command00:07
eeeebalsaq:  ls -la ~/.local/share/Trash/files00:07
balsaqok ill try that00:07
Serraphyneeee: since I changed the video driver stuff do I need to reboot?00:08
balsaqok i ran it so now what00:08
eeeeSerraphyn: wouldn't hurt00:08
Serraphyneeee: okay rebooting it00:08
shibbolethAnyone else experiencing issues using 3rd-party gnome-shell extensions on 14.04?00:08
Serraphynbalsaq: I think the point was to see if any files in that ls -la where not owned by your login00:09
eeeebalsaq: are any files owned by root or any user other than yours?00:09
balsaqi dont know what u mean i downloading these stupid OS files and now i wanna remove them so i should own it00:09
Guest86008can you communicate with chinese?00:10

Serraphynoops, wrong stat, AMD A6-520000:33
litropySerraphyn, perhaps your issue is driver-oriented for both your symptoms. I'd consider switching to the open-source driver for your GPU. Furthermore, it's possible that Windows reports a higher signal than your true signal. Unless you're seeing the actual dB measurement.00:34
wdoii can't su - myuser00:34

Ben64wdoi: debian?00:35
cfhowlett!debian | wdoi,00:35
ubottuwdoi,: Ubuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/i386/what-is-debian.html - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!00:35

wdoii really need access this user00:35
cfhowlettwdoi, #debian is your channel.00:35
Serraphynlitropy: maybe I should try one of the other 2 drivers available, like the fglrx one?00:36
wdoicfhowlett: Ben64 told me to come00:36
cfhowlettwdoi, ben64 also advised you that you should be asking #debian about debian issues00:36
eeeeSerraphyn: usually the open source drivers work best, but give it a shot00:37
litropySerraphyn, yes, you may try that. Be sure to back up any information you want to keep --- video driver switching is sometimes gnarly if you don't know what you're doing. But many times, it's very easy.00:37
Serraphyneeee: just changing options took 3 seconds(clicking the button next to Using Video Driver00:37
Serraphynnothing on this pc yet since its so pokey00:37
litropySerraphyn, but yeah. I'd go open source with vid.00:37
eeeeSerraphyn: it should download the driver, takes a bit00:38

ldiamondAnyone know a good way to find out what's taking so much ram? https://gist.github.com/lewisdiamond/4fa8eacb58240dbf945203:05
litropyldiamond, htop03:05
ldiamondSomehow 7GB used by applications, Xchat, 1 terminal and Chrome03:05
ldiamondlitropy, yea it doesn't really add up. Do you know if the kernel keeps all the shared libs loaded outside of buffers and caches?03:06
litropyldiamond, that's beyond me. But it doesn't sound likely.03:07
litropyFinally got it working. Thx eeee, Flannel, all.03:09
litropythat sudo apt-get [package]=[version] really got me on the right track.03:09
eeeeglad it worked out03:10
spearheadldiamond, you can use top to view running processes but htop (not installed by default) is better and you can organize by percent used ram03:11
GeoIf I drop a file in /etc/cron.d , do I need to reload anything to get it to run, or does cron automatically monitor that dir?03:11
ldiamondspearhead, yea I've been looking at those, but it doesn't add up03:11
eeeeGeo: use crontab -e , it's better03:11
Geothanks, but not what I'm asking here :)03:11
spearheadldiamond, if you run htop hit F6 and select MEM% then post a screenshot03:12
eeeeGeo: well, someone tried that, and it wouldn't run, something to do with anacron or something03:12
eeeeGeo: just a heads up :)03:12
buuHey, I'm on more or less the latest ubuntu and I've somehowgot a program that popups when I insert a dvd, I thought it was called totem but I can't find a totem package installed, is there anyway to verify03:14
Name141-Is there a way to disable a NIC ?03:15
Name141-one you aren't using, like the internal one03:16
GeoName141-: ifconfig to figure out the interface name for that NIC, then ifconfig <interface> down03:16
spearheadName141-, or ifdown <interface>03:16
Name141-Geo: Each boot ?03:16
Geoyou didnt ask that :P03:16
spearheadName141-, but keep the loopback interface up, it is needed by several internal processes03:17
Geooh, if by internal you mean lo , you definitely want that up03:17
Quanitbilitythis saddens me,03:18
spearheadName141-, the interfaces that are brought up at boot are defined by the /etc/network/interfaces file read about it by running man interfaces03:18
GeoName141-, I dont mess with the GUI stuff, but you'd have to edit /etc/network/interfaces and make sure your desired interface is added there, and your non-desired one is removed.03:18
Quanitbilityi really think i should go back to windows though i may go to jail..03:18

Name141-spearhead: but eth0 is filled in right03:23
spearheadsydney, Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.…y/RootSudo03:23
spearheadThere is what it would ahve responded though03:24
sydneyyes,i used to have a root password for those time someone broke the system03:24
sydneyoh well,nevermind then ;)03:25
spearheadName141-, are you sure it is what is your ip address?03:25
eeeesydney: you can still get root easily if you get locked out03:25
sydneya tty?03:25
spearheadsydney, you can set/change/remove the root password with sudo passwd root03:25
Name141-spearhead: Yeah, that's the ViaSat modem page03:25
eeeeno, add init=/bin/bash to the cmdline and execute it03:26

TJ-teaearlgraycold: "update-initramfs" can take some time to complete05:42
teaearlgraycoldIt's been like... 10 minutes05:42
TJ-teaearlgraycold: That's a bit ... excessive!05:42
TJ-teaearlgraycold: Are you able to open another shell, or console, to check what processes are running05:43
teaearlgraycoldI can either try to figure out its DHCP address or do the Ctrl+Alt+F3 thing.05:43

teaearlgraycoldI'm not in front of it. It's in the basement.05:44
teaearlgraycoldSo I'll try to sweep through the lower bit of the subnet05:45

Mr_QueueYou can do that too.06:02
Mr_Queuescreen comes with a manual by the way.06:02
TJ-teaearlgraycold: With 'screen' it's :split and :vsplit (horizontal and virtical, respectively)06:03
teaearlgraycoldI used screen for years but IIRC I stopped because it was no longer maintained and someone on IRC told me that Tmux was better and up to date06:04
Mr_QueueThat can't be true.06:04
teaearlgraycoldOkay dist-upgrade worked06:04
teaearlgraycoldOr maybe that was irssi and weechat...06:04
teaearlgraycoldI can't remember why I switched06:04
teaearlgraycoldWeechat's pretty cool06:05
Mr_QueueIs the way of the dodo.. Not screen or anything else you mentioned.06:05
teaearlgraycoldSo why should I use screen?06:05
TJ-teaearlgraycold: screen or tmux; when a command might lock up, it helps to run it under a multiplexer so you can quickly open an additional shell and fix it06:06
Mr_QueueI don't even know where to start on why to use screen..06:07
teaearlgraycoldI understand that. I want to know why Mr_Queue wants me to use screen over tmux06:07

gorelativei wish landscape wasnt so much money o.O06:08
teaearlgraycoldYes, but how is that any different from tmux?06:08
Mr_QueueGoogle will help you there..06:08
Paradiseehello o/06:09
teaearlgraycoldSo you don't know?06:09
Mr_QueueOne is a server solution, the other is for a workstation.06:09
teaearlgraycoldThey both exhibit the persistance I'm looking for06:09
Paradiseei was trying to upgrade with "apt-get upgrade" but it says that the swap isn't big enough, how can i resize it?06:09
Paradiseeor probably was the boot, i don't remember...06:09
Mr_Queueteaearlgraycold: I've been doing this for a bunch of years now.06:10
Mr_QueueYou'll never find tmux on the servers, you will find screen sessions everywhere.06:10
Mr_QueueWe can even share screen sessions.06:10
teaearlgraycoldThe issue here is that I am the only person who will SSH into the machine. And I will only use tmux to keep my IRC client/rtorrent open 24/7.06:11
Mr_QueueSounds cool, good luck.06:11
teaearlgraycoldOkay. It's how I had it before, there's just no reason to change for me.06:12

ultioThanks, basically I am having more of a general problem with my display drivers. I am running a notebook with an Intel onboard GPU and and AMD dedicated GPU. I just got one of these fancy 34" LG monitors, unfortunately its only displaying 30 Hertz via HDMI. I googled around and found out that this is because intel's graphics chipset does not support a higher refresh rate at this resolution, so I was trying to switch to the AMD gpu at a07:55
ultio(This monitor will be used with a different machine and display port in the future, so it's just a temporary solution to go with 50 Hertz, but 30 Hz is quite horrible to my eyes)07:56

MelioI know i just noticed that12:37
Meliook got the icon and graphic properly set on the launcher12:39
Meliobut it's not launching12:39

kostkonMelio, does the icon work now?12:41
Novice201yHello. How can I check producer's name of HDD in my computer under Ubuntu?12:41
Meliook adding java -jar fixed it12:41
Melioi figured i had to launch it with java12:41
kostkonMelio, jar files need the -jar option12:42
Meliothe desktop will launch it cause i has assoation, but the launcher ignores those12:42
kostkonMelio, yeah you need the -jar when you run it from the terminal12:42
Melioi assumed the launcher was using the association12:42
Meliothat thin grey line of terminal/console to desktop config files12:43
Meliono biggie. finally fixed it12:43

ikoniafor the last time - the files are not read only18:37
ikoniathe file system is read only18:37
geirhaAnd there's mainly three reasons for a filesystem to be mounted readonly. 1. It was mounted so intentionally to avoid any modifications   2. It's a readonly filesystem by nature, like iso9660,  3. The filesystem is corrupted somehow and the os decides it is unsafe to mount it in readwrite mode.18:38
EiriksUbuntui don't get it18:38

EiriksUbuntuikonia I had issues with installing some scripts because they had read only on them18:40
geirhaEiriksUbuntu: If you insert a data CD/DVD, can you modify any files on it? no, because the filesystem is readonly. It doesn't matter what permissions and ownershipt the files have, it is readonly, that means no modification possible for that filesystem.18:40

SirRiffsAlotdaftykins: and I seem to remember being told to make another partition too, something about BIOS20:44
daftykinsSirRiffsAlot: perhaps you were told something about EFI20:44
SirRiffsAlotWas the install that prompted me that message by the way20:44
daftykinsSirRiffsAlot: what OS is on this disk already? are you in a live session right now preparing to install? you should show us the disk setup as is20:45

pompeiihello everyone, do we have an alternative to this horrid imposition: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-flash-plugin-view-videos-animations-games ?21:35
pompeiiI wish to avoid flash, and a video on a site asks for flash plugin, is it possible to circumvent this?21:36
ikoniapompeii: that page is obsolete now21:36
SonikkuAmerica"Horrid imposition?" Sounds like a loaded question to me21:37
ikoniapompeii: no, you need a flash player to see flash content, and as flash is "dead" on linux, you hit problems21:37
daftykinsif a site needs flash, it needs flash21:37
OerHekspompeii, install ubuntu restricted metapackage for flashplugin, java codecs and more21:37
SonikkuAmericapompeii: You can use pepper-flashplugin-nonfree on Chromium21:37
SirRiffsAlotSo now I booted into UEFI-mode :)21:38
SirRiffsAlotShould it have been EFI specifically? UEFI-mode looked just like the guide mentioned21:38
SirRiffsAlotI'll try the install now, see what happens21:38
daftykinsSirRiffsAlot: good stuff, so install with 20GB / ext4, 4GB swap and the rest of the space as /home ext421:38
SirRiffsAlotdaftykins: so I need to partition these first anyway? Why 4gb swap :P21:39
daftykinsSirRiffsAlot: because i said so :)21:40
=== fego is now known as Guest42159
=== _Simon_ is now known as Guest81359
daftykinsSirRiffsAlot: just run the installer and when it asks to partition, select 'something else' and create them manually21:40
pompeiiSonikkuAmerica, so pepper flash is the substitute of flash for linux, as far as I gather21:40
daftykinspompeii: no. it's flash for chromium, as mentioned21:40
SirRiffsAlotdaftykins: ugh... was hoping to avoid that, but alright. Why was this UEFI even necessary then?21:41
daftykinsSirRiffsAlot: advancements in the industry, to put it simply.21:41
daftykinsdisks grew too big.21:41
SirRiffsAlotdaftykins: with all due respect, if I can utillise 16gb memory, I'd like to do that :/21:42
SirRiffsAlotCan you please explain why 4gb?21:42
ikoniaSirRiffsAlot: what makes you think you won't utilise your ram ?21:42
pompeiidaftykins, thought so as you said adobe flash is no more on linux, or at least no more a one-click thing21:42

wadI'm doing that step now, actually.23:17
wadI think I can just switch some symlinks....23:17

tewardwad: yeah, but it's better to use `update-alternatives` i think23:17
wadroot@playa:/usr/bin# update-alternatives --config gcc23:18
wadupdate-alternatives: error: no alternatives for gcc23:18
wadWhat am I doing wrong?23:18
wadI've got both 4.6 and 4.8 installed now...23:18

Bashing-omwad: Not that it hels much, but; verify what is installed: -> sysop@1404mini:~$ apt-cache policy gcc >> Candidate: 4:4.8.2-1ubuntu6 <- I would expect version 4.8 to be a long way up the pipe line yet.23:25
Nothing_Muchdaftykins: Thank you23:25
wadYes, it's using 4.8 currently. apt-cache policy confirmed. So I can manually repoint the symlink in /usr/bin/gcc to the other version of gcc that I installed (4.6), and then the "gcc --version" shows that version, but there are probably other symlinks that need to be switched over also.23:28

daftykinsyou might want to explain the situation a bit more23:41
TimotyI want to try to see how a retina resolution looks lH23:42
daftykinsno, LCDs have a finite number of pixels - you can't draw on what isn't there23:42
