AR45_somsip: I just need some articles to configure things or some help from you that's all00:33
daftykinssomsip: purely for how many issues AR45_ had when getting started, it seems counter-intuitive to start all over again. there are far better ways to learn than this.00:33
somsipdaftykins: I came in at the point where he was asking how to remove gnome and unity. I had no back history00:33

daftykinsAR45_ somsip - for what it's worth i'm not trying to portray having any issues with helping, it's just that i don't run desktop so i can't assist.00:33

daftykinswell you're bound to agree with your own approach :)00:34
somsipAR45_: so with the login thing... I had the same issue with 14.04, and wanted no login mangager (I'd used slim with minimal 12.04 too) but couldn't find what was missing to allow startx, and installing slim did start it. But I wouldn't recommend that as the only solution as slim is either deprecated or not supported. I've never used lightdm00:35

RudyValenciaI already have the box set up with PBIS Open02:57
daftykinswith what?02:58
RudyValenciaused to be likewise open02:58
RudyValenciafor Active Directory logins02:58
daftykinsso guest access ultimately?02:58
RudyValencianot really02:59
RudyValenciaI guess guest access is okay for now03:03
RudyValenciait's just me accessing shares on a Windows server I run03:03
RudyValenciais this what you are suggesting daftykins03:04
RudyValenciaah, I can do libpam_mount perhaps03:05
daftykinssorry i stepped away for a sec03:05
daftykinslet me catch up03:05
daftykinsso said windows server is setup as a DC?03:05
daftykinsnot sure what complications you'll run into there03:05
RudyValenciaand ubuntu can log in to the DC because I have it joined to the domain via PBIS/likewise open03:06
daftykinsyeah, never heard of that03:07
daftykinsi can't predict how that might change things03:07
RudyValenciait's a program that lets Ubuntu log into a domain03:07
RudyValenciaeh I'll be back later03:09
RudyValenciagonna add memory to this box03:09

xanguacharta: what five diferent sets of instructions¿ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer for mozilla plugin03:14
xanguapepperflash something for chromium, google chrome already comes with it03:14
cyphasethis shouldn't be too hard to hack together, but in case it already exists.. is there a utility that you can run on multiple systems with changing (public) ips that will keep all the systems hosts files updated to reference each other?03:14
xanguapepperflashplugin-nonfree for chromium03:15
charlie5xangua: thanks for reply ... i have installed pepperflashplugin-nonfree but the page i wish to visit still insists flash is not the latest version :/03:17

Bashing-om!nomodeset | Phiro03:26
ubottuPhiro: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter03:26
WulframnPhiro, check your boot parameters in /etc/fstab03:26
PhiroThanks, I will try that. I tried holding down shift during a reboot and it didn't make a difference, but I'll try it again.03:28
whoever_Phiro: that is why i said to just do a fresh install, its not the best way, but the quickest way03:29
WulframnPhiro, use your livecd/liveusb to boot into a live environment, mount the drive, navigate to /etc/fstab and edit it that way.03:29
Wulframnwhoever_, that may not be an option (critical infrastructure, etc.)03:29
Phiroyeah, this is a production server that runs our company's main jira instance, and I didn't back it up ahead of time :/03:29
whoever_Wulframn: correct, i also was assuming if it was mission citical that he would had stated that03:30
PhiroI held down shift, I now see a grub message flash by, it looked like 4+ lines of something not found03:30
WulframnGood thing you had this experience to remind you to back it up in the future.03:30
WulframnThere are only two types of people in the world: those who back up their data and those who've never had a critical failure.03:31

linociscoI would like to install ubuntu desktop 14.04.1 LTS . I dont know which I have to download 32bit or 64 bit03:33
LawnGnome_Does anyone here know what distinguishes ubuntu-gnome from ubuntu? I am running ubuntu but i want to convert it to ubuntu-gnome. Is there a file or something that specifies what distro it is?03:33
richardaus64bit if you have a decent system with lots of memory.  32 if you have limited resources memory wise.03:33
whoever_niebieski: what video card do you have03:33
niebieskiwhoever_: No I tried to boot live or install both does the same problem03:34
WulframnPhiro, I am not sure off the top of my head. If it isn't you can either download another image or just use System Rescue CD. I, personally, *STRONGLY* recommend having a copy of System Rescue CD lying around. I cannot impress that upon you enough.03:34
niebieskiwhoever_: Intel mobile03:34
Wulframnlinocisco, how much ram does your system have?03:34
xanguaLawnGnome_: ubuntu uses unity , ubuntu gnome uses gnome shell, both use gnome303:35
whoever_niebieski: is your install media a dvd03:35
linociscoWulframn, 8GB currently but intel processor with 64bit support03:35
Wulframnlinocisco, then 64-bit03:35
PhiroHmm, it doesn't look like it has a live anything option, I'll go look for downloads.03:35
linociscoWulframn, according to http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04.1, 64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop image03:35
linocisco    Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead.03:35
niebieskiwhoever_: No it's a CD about 1GB.03:35
richardausHow hard is it to change desktops?03:35
ObrienDaverichardaus, very easy03:36
linociscoWulframn,  i have 64bit but not AMD03:36
ObrienDavelinocisco, not a problem03:36
Elimin8erits strange, after doing an upgrade. and then a reboot. my wifi wouldnt work.. kept pulling up as Airplane mode on. and I couldnt turn it off. after alot of googleing and reading.. I figured out fn+F2 pretty much fixed the problem.. but I dont understand why after all the many upgrades I have done. this one would cause my wifi to shut down..03:36
Wulframnlinocisco, you do not need AMD. Your CPU supports 64 bit processing and you have 8g's of RAM. You're good to go.03:36
ObrienDavelinocisco, AMD is just the name of the 64bit images.03:37
linociscoObrienDave, Wulframn . Dear bros. clear now. thanks alot03:37
PhiroThe 14.04 iso gives me the choice of boot from first hard disk or rescue a broken system - do either of those, or download the live cd?03:37
LawnGnome_but if i do a release upgrade of ubuntu installed from a ubuntu unity install cd, wont it overwrite gnome's packages?03:37
whoever_niebieski: if it is a cd than how big is the iso you burned to in in mb03:37
WulframnPhiro, I am not sure what "rescue a broken system" does so I will point you to someone else here.03:38
whoever_niebieski: alse what speed did you burn it at03:38
niebieskiwhoever_: I'm using a USB flash and I used Rufus.03:38
Phirothe "boot from first hard disk" gave me the exact same issue (cursor in upper left corner), trying the rescue, but I won't go far.03:38
whoever_niebieski: try the diskcreator utility in ubuntu03:41
whoever_i have not used rufus03:41
niebieskiwhoever_: I'll try the nomodeset first.03:42
niebieskiThanks, everyone. :)03:42
whoever_niebieski: the other thing you can try is to boot your flash into a vm03:43
Bashing-omPhiro: Still like a graphics issue .. Nvidia or ATI graphics card in use ?03:43
PhiroSigh, neither, it's a vmware server.03:44
LawnGnome_does ubuntu gnome use a different repository for release upgrades than ubuntu unity?03:44
PhiroThe 14.04 install ISO's rescue mode allows me to get to a shell, or reinstall grub, or a few other things. I tried reinstalling grub to /dev/sda, no difference. Going to a shell.03:44
charlie5ah, nice ... google chrome loads the flash page correctly ... tah for tip xangua03:45
xanguaLawnGnome_: ubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu, ubuntu gnome are all ubuntu and use same repository03:45
PhiroAh, apparently the live mode is on the desktop iso only, I just need a desktop iso.03:46
Bashing-omPhiro: Yrue for the live mode .. desktop.03:46
LawnGnome_so if i do a release upgrade on ubuntu with gnome installed over unity will it try to replace gnome?03:48
samthewildonehow do I get slingbox on linux03:49
samthewildoneOn Ubuntu 14.04.1LTS03:49
LawnGnome_so if i do a release upgrade on ubuntu with gnome installed over unity will it try to replace gnome?03:51
PhiroMy /etc/default/grub looks totally default according to google, do I do anything more than remark out the two GRUB_HIDDEN lines?03:51
PhiroAlright, this is slightly better, now I have grub coming up. If I go to advanced mode, I get to pick from 3 kernels - 3.13, 3.2, or 2.6, and recovery modes for all of them. Try going back to 3.2?03:54
LawnGnome_what was your issue phiro?03:55
Phiroupgrading to 14.04 left me with a black screen, cursor upper left corner.03:55
PhiroHmm, trying 3.13 normal worked?03:55
Bashing-omPhiro: You may, but "recovery mode" may prove the more productive .03:55
LawnGnome_is it the kernel or the x server?03:56
PhiroAlright, how did it work, and how do I get it to work again?03:57
Phiroahh, I should put nomodeset in /etc/default/grub?03:57
Bashing-omPhiro: You are booting up with a "normal" older kernel, correct ?03:58
PhiroI thought 3.13 was neweR?03:59
ObrienDaveit is04:00
Bashing-omPhiro: That is the series of the kernel for 14.04 ...current is 3.13.0-36-generic .04:00
PhiroAlright, now things are working. Was grub so messed up that a clean /etc/default/grub & running grub-update (or whatever I typed) fixed things?04:01
cuulcarsSo, I'm trying to install elementary OS. I know it's not technically Ubuntu but I think the problem is with Ubiquity.  The installer isn't recognizing my /dev/sda. I tried starting with unallocated space, that didn't work, I tried setting up the partitions in windows, to no avail, and I finally setup the partitions manually with GParted (ext4 and a swap). Still, the installer does not allow me to install to these partitions. Anyone 04:03
Bashing-omPhiro: Possible, maybe ?? .. have you run -> sudo apt-get update , sudo apt-get upgrade , sudo apt-get dist-upgrade <- yet ?04:03
surjoMy Intel Graphic are successfully installed and update, now how to use it??04:04
somsipcuulcars: you are right, it's not ubuntu. Try #elementary04:04
PhiroBashing-om: yeah, did all that as part of the upgrade. I've done probably ~50+ upgrades of ubuntu, but I guess I've totally lucked out until tonight. Never had anything like this happen before.04:07
PhiroThanks everyone, it's coming back up. I'll finish the jira upgrade & adding the sensu client to the server.04:08
Bashing-omIt happens .. all is good now ?04:08
PhiroI've only rebooted once and the grub menu now comes up with a 10 second countdown, but I'll leave that the way it is, as I rarely reboot this server.04:09
PhiroI need to do another restart in a couple minutes and then I'm done, if it comes back touch-free I'll call it golden.04:09
crazyhead42Phiro, can you help me figure out how to get my server accessable (or how to access it if it is already accessable)?04:10
Bashing-omPhiro: I prefer to have a bit of countdown, just so it is easier to get to grub's boot menu .. fingers crossed for ya .. golden !04:10
Phirocrazyhead42: I can help you with Jira, Stash, Confluence, Crucible, Fisheye, Coverity, Nexus, and Sonar, but Linux isn't my forte (obviously) :/04:12
crazyhead42I have two IP addresses for it (not sure which one I want), my password, my username, and "FileZilla"04:12
linociscohi all04:13
crazyhead42Oh. I'm still new to ubuntu. But I better learn, cause this computer isn't going to last that long, and I'm NOT getting another pc.04:13
PhiroSensu I'm still a big beginner with - I have about 25 hosts talking to my sensu/uchiwa server, and I'm adding production servers as I touch them (hence adding our prod Jira server tonight, as I was upgrading it).04:13
linociscowhen we setup ubuntu during installation, we need to provide user name and password that is asked for log in later on. How can we make ubuntu free login for anyone?04:13
lotuspsychjelinocisco: you can use the guest account after install04:14
linociscolotuspsychje, there is no way like windows to log in automatically without user's intervention?04:14
crazyhead42Okay, so how do I find out what port my computer uses?04:15
lotuspsychjelinocisco: you can enable automatic login for each user yes04:15
lotuspsychjelinocisco: but its not reccomended to share password of the creator account with others04:15
lotuspsychjelinocisco: its better to use guest account or internet kiosk package after04:16
PhiroBashing-om: Cool, a clean restart with my fingers away from anything worked just fine. Jira is back up, Sensu has another host to listen to. All is right with the world again. Thanks everyone.04:16
Bashing-omPhiro: :))04:17
crazyhead42NOT ALL IS RIGHT IN THE WORLD! I still use windows 8.04:17
lotuspsychjecrazyhead42: caps off plz04:17
linociscolotuspsychje, i dont want to share creator's password. I just want to disable "asking for password" and make it ready to use without user's action04:17
somsipcrazyhead42: calm down and keep to support issues please04:17
lotuspsychjelinocisco: you should stay the admin of your computer, then make a new user 'everyone' and new password then set to automatic logon04:18
linociscolotuspsychje, how do I do that? any reference link?04:19
lotuspsychjesomeone knows trigger for creating users?04:19

crazyhead42Basically, I just want to store stuff on the harddrive. FileZilla was recommended to me, so I have that.04:22

slyrus_there's some weirdness where a terminal window will "bounce" up and down and, e.g., the URL input widget in firefox flashes repeatedly04:28
slyrus_perhaps taking a video of this with my phone would help describe the phenomenon04:28
crazyhead42are the NAS servers basically "cloud storage", only you have access to and control over them?04:28
slyrus_some weird window manager/mouse interaction bug?04:29
lotuspsychjecrazyhead42: a nas server is used for your own file storage on your local server, and share on your network04:29
crazyhead42basically, yes.04:30
lotuspsychjecrazyhead42: but more nas devices are being used in the cloud also, but thats offtopic04:30
crazyhead42yes, but we've all been advertised to death to know what "the cloud" is.04:30
lotuspsychjecrazyhead42: you can google some ubuntu nas layouts to inform yourself04:31
crazyhead42Well, I've likely succeeded in choosing a poor phrasing of my google search04:32
lotuspsychjecrazyhead42: did your teacher inform you about security on cloud storage too?04:32
crazyhead42No teacher.04:33
crazyhead42And I won't be storing anything that needs too much security for a bit, so I'll probably just unplug the ethernet cable when I'm not using it and call that good enough for now.04:34
crazyhead42Maybe over the break I'll worry about setting up a decent firewall and getting a security system in place.04:34

Noah_ATlotuspsychje: My router has its port forwarded. When I try to connect from another machine to the server locally using the port, it works great05:06
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: port number*05:06
dalekusaObrienDave: Mind if I tell you a bit of a story about how Ubuntu came to be installed on my computer?05:06
lotuspsychjeNoah_AT: and remote not?05:06
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: right, so when I use my external-IP:port it doesn’t see anything05:07
Noah_ATlotuspsychje of course minecraft returns “can’t connect to server” in that case which is pretty useless information05:07
lotuspsychjeNoah_AT: isnt there a difference of server setup dedicated or public?05:07
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: Not sure what you are asking? It was working fine a few weeks ago and then tonight I updated the OS05:08
lotuspsychjeNoah_AT: maybe the server only setup for playing localy05:08
=== sR is now known as Guest28291
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: Oh, no. The minecraft server just listens to the port you specificy. It allows all connections05:09
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: I pinged my external IP and did connect05:09
lotuspsychjeNoah_AT: isnt there a database of server ip's that other users can scan to join server?05:09
lotuspsychjeNoah_AT: can you pm me your external ip? ill try nmap to see05:10
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: No. This is a private server. It’s literally a jar file running on my linux that listens to connections coming in on default port 2556505:10
Noah_ATlotuspsychje: There are some bigger servers that are listed on websites and stuff, but thats not what I’m going for. I’m just going for a direct connection05:11
lotuspsychjeNoah_AT: ok so other users cant connect your servers remote right?05:11
AR45So I just installed Ubuntu 14.04 from the minimal cd. So far I've installed xorg and kde-plasma-desktop? What do you suggest I do next?05:11

Noah_ATlotuspsychje anyone with a minecraft client, my external ip address, and the port number could connect. There is an option of denying access based on a whitelist05:12

lotuspsychje!ufw | Noah_AT05:30
ubottuNoah_AT: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo05:30

kisukeilhami, next best think is if it has kvm over lan (still ironing that down) other than that the only way i can think of to install is going to be via SSH05:32
kisukereather controlling via SSH.05:32
ilhamikisuke aaah ok :)05:33
kisukeilhami, you see my delema?05:34
agent_whitekisuke: SSH? Are you trying to install over network? (sorry, popped in late)05:34
kisukeagent_white, pretty much.05:35

ilhamikisuke, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/Netboot05:36

agent_whitekisuke: Also, the default way across a network (if a local comp has the is) is by PXE Boot05:36

agent_whiteNoah_AT: Type in `ssh -vvv your.ip.address` , put the output in a pastebin.05:58
Noah_ATCaffeineAddict: Not sure how to ping my ubuntu system. How can I include a port specification when pinging the external IP05:58
Noah_ATkk will do05:58
akaWolfagent_white: too verbose05:59
Noah_ATshould I do it from the ubuntu machine or from a different one?05:59
CaffeineAddictNoah_AT: is your ubuntu system behind a router?05:59
agent_whiteNoah_AT: Big things are... is the port open on your router and destination_computer for ssh traffic.05:59
CaffeineAddictNoah_AT: does the router have port forwarding on for port 2205:59
agent_whiteakaWolf: "The more the merrier" ;)05:59
Noah_ATSo, it should be on the router. Yes, I forwarded it. Not sure how to check on the ubuntu. It was working, but I updated the ubuntu OS tonight and it no longer works05:59
akaWolfso can someone help me with squid?06:00
cfhowlett!info sqid06:00
agent_whiteCaffeineAddict: Assuming he didn't change the default port... we also don't know if the host he's connecting to has the service running correctly.06:00
ubottuPackage sqid does not exist in trusty06:00
cfhowlett!info squid06:00
ubottusquid (source: squid3): dependency package from squid to squid3. In component universe, is optional. Version 3.3.8-1ubuntu6.1 (trusty), package size 5 kB, installed size 138 kB06:00
CaffeineAddictNoah_AT: on the ubuntu machine can you ssh
agent_whiteCaffeineAddict: nice :D06:00
akaWolfcfhowlett: ?06:00
Noah_ATworked perfectly06:01
Noah_ATI can also ssh in from a computer on the local network06:01
agent_whiteNoah_AT: Then your SSH runs on the default port, 22. And is running.06:01
Noah_ATJust not via the external IP06:01
agent_whiteNoah_AT: Problem is at your router.06:01
CaffeineAddictok, can you ssh from a computer on the local network (not the ubuntu machine) using the external IP06:01
akaWolfNoah_AT: yep, definitely...06:01
Like2HlpUor the gateway setting on the box yea06:01
agent_whiteNoah_AT: Like me and CaffeineAddict said, you need to open port 22 on your router to allow TCP traffic.06:01
cfhowlettakaWolf, this question better addressed in #ubuntu-server   perhaps?06:01
Like2HlpUcheck that06:01
akaWolfcfhowlett: maybe06:02
Noah_AThow can I check my ubuntu’s ip on the network?06:02
Noah_ATfrom the ubuntu06:02
kisukeakaWolf, you also may wanna try #squid06:03
Noah_ATgot it06:03
Like2HlpUip addr06:03
akaWolfkisuke: yep06:03
Like2HlpUfor a loooong time06:03
agent_whiteLike2HlpU: I see you're a systemctl supporter06:04
Noah_ATagent_white: So, if I use the local address I can connect just fine. The router is also showing that the port is forwarded for external tcp/udp use also. Could there be another setting overriding external access?06:04
tasslehoffI seem to have lost all my command completion (git, svn ++). It does not help to manually source something from /etc/bash_completion.d/ either06:04
agent_whiteNoah_AT: NAT could be an issue. Making sure the traffic to 22 is going to that specific computer.06:04
CaffeineAddictNoah_AT: can you take a screen shot of the router conf screen where you port forwarded port 2206:05
AR45Question Buntu! How do I identify the hardware on my computer?06:05
agent_whiteNoah_AT: You need to set up port forwarding, like CaffeineAddict said, to forward all port 22 traffic to THAT machine.06:05
agent_whiteAnd that machine needs a static lan ip for that to happen.06:05
Noah_ATagent_white: Thats how I have it set up :/06:05
Noah_AT: /06:05
AR45Question Buntu! How do I identify the hardware on my computer?06:06
agent_whiteNoah_AT: What happens when you ping port 22 from the outside comptuer?06:06
CaffeineAddictNoah_AT: either static IP or reserve the IP in the routers DHCP06:06
agent_whiteAnd also, `ssh -vvv your.destination.computer`06:06
AR45Question Buntu! How do I list all of my computer's hardware in terminal?06:06
tasslehoffah, the sourcing of /etc/bash_completion was gone. nevermind.06:06
agent_whiteAR45: http://superuser.com/questions/303981/what-is-the-linux-command-to-find-out-hardware-info06:07
Noah_ATagent_white: Great question! I’m wondering the same thing. I can ping the ip, but when I add a port number the ping command fials06:07
Like2HlpUdunno i like systemctl systemd is ok to06:07
agent_whiteNoah_AT: You are pinging that specific port, not the ip, right?06:07
Noah_ATagent_white: ping ip:port06:07
kisukeAR45, lshw.06:07
Noah_ATagent_white: ping ip  (works)06:08
agent_whiteNoah_AT: On the remote machine, `ssh -vvv userName_on_remoteBox@remoteBox.ip.address`06:08
CaffeineAddictlocal or esternal06:08
Noah_ATagent_white: ping ip:port (fails - Unknown Host)06:08
agent_whiteNoah_AT: We need that input as well. Cause have you copied your public keys to the user on the remote machine?06:08
agent_white(does that user exist on the machine?)06:09
CaffeineAddictNoah_AT: does the servers external IP end in 208.5906:09
agent_white`ssh some.ip.address` translates into `ssh MyLocalUsername@some.ip.address`06:09
lotuspsychjeagent_white, CaffeineAddict we just nmapped his external ip, all port show filtered06:09
Like2HlpUdont think that has anything to do with ip06:09
Noah_ATagent_white: yup it does end with that06:09
CaffeineAddictlotuspsychje: figured as much06:10
Noah_ATagent_white: it looks like the -vvv command is timing out06:10
lotuspsychjei scanned nmap -PN -sV on his external ip06:10

IrinaHi will be back :D thanks07:45
phoenixzSo I just installed the nvidia driver from nvida.com, ran nvidia-xconfig, restarted, and nvidia-settings still gives me "you aren not using the nvida driver"... lspci does not show the nvidia hardware at all. Is this normal?07:45
theadminphoenixz: Remove that hamster and use the Additional Drivers utility that comes with Ubuntu.07:46
thmsHi everyone. If I boot off a liveCD and resize a windows partiton with GParted, my PC will still boot after that right no need to install grub or anything the MBR will be left untouched ?07:47
cfhowlettthms, quite possible you'll need to update grub.  windows will invoke a chkdsk the next time your boot it07:48
phoenixztheadmin: hamster?07:48
theadminphoenixz: The driver you downloaded from the website. The one provided in the drivers utility is tested with Ubuntu and installs automatically with less headache.07:49
phoenixztheadmin: you mean the nvidia official driver? alright, how will I uninstall it? run the driver script again?07:49
phoenixztheadmin: well, the problem there would be.. It does not see the nvidia card at all07:49
phoenixztheadmin: lsspci doesnt even see the card07:50
theadminphoenixz: Ohkaaay, now that is weird.07:50
theadminphoenixz: Either way, to uninstall the official driver run the script with --uninstall07:50

iptablelionroars, my advise would be: 1. try it on ubuntu 14.04 itself, not ubuntu-based-distro and see if problem persists. if so, on that ubuntu itself, fully upgrade: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Test again. that will tell you if it's your ubuntu-based issue.08:59

iptablelionroars, you can compile and run any kernel you want. stability will not be guaranteed and it's way outside ubuntu support since ubuntu has a perfectly working standard kernel09:01

chemist^bong1, a friend of mine has 8 gb of RAM ... but has a shitty CPU so the videos load for ages :P09:51
bong1chemist^: thats only bcoz u have lots of ram or a fast cpu  was what i meant09:51
chemist^bong1, 8 gb ram, quadcore 3.6 ghz ... not that fast (nowadays)09:51
chemist^it was, when i bought it ;D09:52
iptableCore i7 (4-core) 3.4GHz, 16GB RAM, 4 TB HDD, some nvidia mobile card. That's my laptop :P09:52

OerHeksgnome-of-lawn, it will be upgraded yes12:27
gnome-of-lawnHow can i stop it from doing that?12:28
iptablegnome-of-lawn, if you don't want unity, installing ubuntu-server and your GNOME and other stuff on top would be preferred.12:28
OerHeksgnome-of-lawn, remove any package you don't want upgraded? i think upgrading unity does no harm12:28
iptablegnome-of-lawn, but did you remove unity? if not, whats the problem? you still have it with gnome and your lightDM lets you choose which GUI to boot into12:29
gnome-of-lawnIs there a file i can change? I know that ubuntu GNOME and ubuntu unity are the same except for DE12:29
iptablegnome-of-lawn, you mean you install ubuntu-gnome pacakge?12:29

iptablegnome-of-lawn, if you removed unity, it won't come back.12:30
gnome-of-lawnOk thanks.12:30
iptablegnome-of-lawn, things that are removed don't automatically spring back to life.12:30
Ben64why would you want to upgrade to 14.10 though? 14.04 has support for 5 years, 14.10 for 9 months12:30
iptableand that gnome-of-lawn ^12:30
gnome-of-lawnIn an upgrade sometimes things happen i just wanted to make sure12:30
iptablegnome-of-lawn, 1. why upgrade to non-LTS? 2. why upgrade to BETA which isn't stable released yet?12:31

iptablearpd, so prime goes there so that if you do have 2 GPUs, you can switch. if you have 1, just don't run prime from command line.12:34
bekksamigojapan: Do not use Wubi. Install Ubuntu on a second partition or in a vm.12:34

arpdKamuela: you _may_ run in to a problem with your service provider though, some explicitly disallow tethering12:43

iptablewithout wireless drivers, only USB tether will work12:45

Kamuelathe next question is now not officially an ubuntu one. it wants to use data rather than the wifi. when i first plugged it in it was happily using the wifi connection. i wonder if there's a way to force wifi. but it's an iphone... it's not like there are hidden options13:09

iptableFoorack, from a screen session (screen), run that iptables rule, followed by sleep 120 and followed by iptables -F (all in one line with semicolon. if you get locked out, in 120 seconds, rules with flush and you are back online13:10

GRMrGeckoHello, I have a Dell Dimension 3100 and need a GPU to add DVI or HDMI. The computer seems to only have PCI slots. Any recommendations? The one I was looking into was under "Supported, but Hardware is Too Old for Unity"13:12
cecjaGRMrGecko: Do you just need to add a DVI or HDMI Port, if yes just use an adapter otherwise get a matrox g450pci  its cheap and works.13:14
GRMrGeckocecja: Reason for DVI or HDMI is I have only one monitor with VGA13:15
GRMrGeckocecja: does that support unity?13:18
GRMrGeckoor does it go to the CPU like the ATI 9000 I was looking at?13:18
arpdfor those that were curious, I figured out my problem with the nvidia driver; I had pointed c++ and cc to clang++ and clang13:19

freezershould i use the AMD64+Mac install image for a recent macbookpro?13:27
iptablefreezer, latest ubuntu 14.04 with macbookpro. 64 yes.13:27
freezeriptable, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro11-1/Saucy13:29
freezerhere it says: The 2013 MacBook Pro can recognize multi-boot CD image (e.g., Ubuntu's official iso). So there is no need to use the "mac" iso image for installation. In fact, I recommend you avoid the "mac" iso image because it is a BIOS-boot only image and will force the Mac to enter BIOS emulation mode to install Ubuntu, which will need to be fixed to boot in its native EFI mode.13:29
freezerso it is recommended to use the regular AMD64 image, rather then the one marked for Mac13:30
iptableyes, that what I just said13:31
iptablefreezer, latest ubuntu 14.04 with macbookpro. 64 yes.13:31
iptablestandard ubuntu x64 14.04 iso13:31
freezeri'm trying 14.1013:31
iptablefreezer, 14.10 is not out yet, and as such is beta, may break your mac and is not recommended. also out of support of this channel13:33
iptablefreezer, any reason you want a 9-month-livespan version instead of the 14.04 LTS 5 year support version?13:34

Foorackiptable, it worked. Thanks! :D13:36
iptablefreezer, not really. not on a beta13:37
iptableFoorack, no probs13:37
yeatsfreezer: you should definitely use 14.04 for now - wait until the 14.10 release later this month13:37
freezerwell the 'beta' is going to get releases in 2weeks13:37
freezerso how unstable can it be?13:38
yeatsfreezer: still unstable though13:38
freezerok i will try with 14.04 then13:38
yeatsfreezer: trust us, if you are new to this, stick with stable ;-)13:38
freezernot new, but the beta2 i installed before didn't work with the NVIDIA drivers13:39
philinuxyeats;~ #ubuntu+1 has hardly any chat at all just hide join stuff. Hardly ever seen any support going on in there. Which is a shame.13:39
iptablephilinux, that's because it's hard to justify trying to support a beta13:39
freezerbtw i'm wiping MacOS away using only Ubuntu :)13:39
iptablefreezer, there you go. stick with stable. and 14.04 IS 5 years of support, so no need to reinstall/upgrade in 9 months13:40
philinuxiptable;~ not support just queries and discussion would be good13:40
ilhamiany FTP clients you can recommend?13:40
ilhamibesides filezilla13:40
iptablephilinux, looks like 99.999% of people use stable13:40

ilhamiit will take 1 second13:41
freezerso i had to go with the expensive macbook :p13:41
ilhamiand I don't need anything fancy.13:41
iptableilhami, filezilla13:42
ilhamiI could also use SFTP if that makes you happier?13:42
iptableilhami, FTP is already fancy. using FTP is as dreadfully fancy as you can get with ftp,ftps,active,passive,multiport design failure.13:42
iptableilhami, sftp, like scp, uses just one port and is sane. it also works iwth standard scp client13:42
iptableit also supports proper encryption13:43
ilhamiiptable, ok but filezilla also works with sftp for your info13:43
iptableilhami, I know that. I didn't say it didn't. FTP is dreadful though and sftp is a MASSIVE improvement in security, protocol and design.13:44
ilhamiiptable, ok I hope my host supports it.13:44
iptableilhami, and sftp works with what you asked for - simple client. scp13:44
iptableilhami, note that sftp !- ftps13:44
iptablethey are different13:44
iptableone is sftp and another is just ftp with encryption13:44
ilhamiok :) which one is better?13:44
cecjaiptable: yes but it`s so hard on the cpu with a lot of users13:45
dominik_iptable: well, for anonymous uploads of large files, ftp still seems a better solution than e.g. an in-browser flash and/or javascript solution13:45
iptableilhami, sftp13:45
iptableilhami, avoid ftp if you can. if you can't avoid it, use filezilla13:45
iptablececja, what is your CPU?13:45
iptablececja, heavy as in, on a pentium4?13:45

iptabledominik_, so what is wrong with webdav?13:46
iptablei'm using it for years now.13:46
iptablececja, ok, pentium3 too. what's your point?13:46
iptablelet's use unencrypted traffic and share our mysql password in php files over unencrypted channels because encuyrption requires more CPU cycles?13:47
iptableilhami, ^ use encryption btw, if you have mysql passwords in that website's files13:47
ilhamiiptable, it's a static site.. made with jekyll13:48
ilhamino need to13:48
iptableheh, ok.13:48
cecjaiptable: there are better ways for filetransfer.13:48
ilhamihelmut_, hi13:49
dominik_iptable: webdav with davfs2 is pretty nice, but you need to install something. ftp upload works with pretty much any os that has a tcp stack13:49
iptablececja, any way is better than ftp. If you disagree, then you never implemented ftp server before with a proper firewall. there is java, javascript, flash, webdav, sftp, scp, cifs, html5, anything!13:49
dominik_but I agree, securitywise sftp is the way to go13:49
cecjaiptable: cool your blood sftp is not the answer to the ftp problem.13:50
iptabledominik_, well, it's got popular when nothing else was there and is still available. so is a lot of other old junk. if we start usting other stuff, ftp will finally die as it should.13:50

ilhamiiptable, SFTP is not supported by my bad hosting company hehe13:50

Z3Hi, I read that there will not be an Ubuntu 15.04 normal release, and that Ubuntu will be a rolling release from that date. Is that correct?14:29
hamzaHi I have a problem14:30
hamzacan anyone listen14:30
ilhamihamza just state your problem.14:30

McFrishQuick question: anyone know how to configure Apache authentication to automagically accept ssh login/passwords (i.e., without having to enter every uname/password into an .htaccess file or password database)14:31

hamzai have installed ubuntu on already windows 8 installed pc on a separate partition (not along side windows 8). Formatted that as ext4 with '\' as mounting point. But upon installing, when the pc restarted, it just boots to windows 8 instead of showing a menu or anything...14:32

nabn_hi. I got a new computer and want to clone my existing ubuntu installation to a new one. The hardware on the two computer is different, and both have ubuntu 14.04.1 installed.  After a bit of googling, i found more than a couple ways to do it.  I chose to go with the rsync option here=[http://eggsonbread.com/2010/01/28/move-ubuntu-to-another-computer-in-3-simple-steps/] , but got stuck on an rsync error that looks like a bug. Any tips/l14:33
ilhamihamza,  your Ubuntu install should have installed grub?14:33
hamzadoesnt ubuntu installs grub by itself?14:33
McFrishhamza: windows 8 intentionally complicates things14:34
Z3somsip yes, I read just that14:34
hamzawindows 8 is on c: drive the system just boots from that drive14:34
ilhamihamza, it should.14:34
ilhamihttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Installing check this guide14:34
Z3somsip but is strange I can find only links in spanish14:35
Z3somsip maybe is a hoax14:35
hamzawait... I chose the device for boot loader installation as f:\ drive (sda7)14:36
hamzais that what i did wrong?14:36
somsipZ3: " Ubuntu 15.04 will not be released. At least not as we know it. " Which is a bad google translate, with the relevant being "not as we know it" eg, it will be different. Nothing to see here. Move along please.14:36
OerHeksZ3 cannot find that info on the original source http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/interviews/386080/mark-shuttleworth-interview-taking-ubuntu-beyond-desktops14:37

ilhamiWhen using the "Something Else" option, you will be offered to choose the "Device for bootloader installation". Please select: * either the disk (eg /dev/sdX, not /dev/sdXY) on which the BIOS is setup to boot (recommended for normal use) * OR the partition (eg /dev/sdXY, not /dev/sdX) on which Ubuntu (/boot, else /) will be installed (only if you want to chainload it from another bootloader; if any doubt, do NOT choose this)14:39
ilhamiso yes you should have chosen sda14:39

ManicPanichello, can i reinstall a broken ubuntu on a dual boot system with Windows ?15:43
Turingijhutchins: apparently it can show up after a hard reboot after an OS crash, it could be related to firefox and flash. firefox also tends to hang the OS when opening a larger image file (something like 5K x 5K pixels)15:43
theadminManicPanic: Sure.15:44
ManicPanictheadmin: wont that damage windows in any way ?15:44
theadminManicPanic: Not unless you damage it.15:44
Turingijhutchins: which is why I was asking if there were recent reports of Adobe Flash in Firefox crashing after the last few updates15:44
ManicPanictheadmin: will only the old Ubuntu partition be effected by the reinstall?15:45
bynarieManicPanic, no, not if you install to the correct partition.. and if your windows install doesnt show up on the bootloader, boot into linux and run sudo-update-grub15:45
bynarieManicPanic, YES15:45
theadminManicPanic: That depends on where you install.15:45
zteamfreezer, it should be possible to adjust the voltage with NiBiToR at least on older graphicscards, but I really don't recommend it15:45
Turingijhutchins: in that case, it's a system hang with even the sound stopping (goes in a short loop)15:45
freezerzteam, it seems to clock down the GPU/MEM already15:46
freezerGPU running at 135MHz in idle15:46
zteamManicPanic, yes you can15:46
freezerbut scrolling seems to already push it higher than that15:46
bynarieManicPanic, what is wrong with your linux install??15:46
Turingijhutchins: I can sort of reproduce it with firefox opening a couple of tabs with youtube videos and a CPU-intensive app15:46
freezerprobably because the Retina has such an insane amount of pixels15:46
ManicPanicbynarie: ok that makes sense15:47

zteamfreezer, if overclocking is what you are after then that's available in the official Nvidia driver15:47
Turingijhutchins: firefox freezing the OS was actually an issue even before I changed the mobo/CPU/RAM15:47
freezerzteam, no15:47
freezeri want it to consume less power15:48
bynarieManicPanic, yes... and when you are installing ubuntu, when you get to the partition editor, most likely it will be marked as an EXT partiton(ext2/ext3/ext4). Windows uses ntfs most likely15:48
Turingijhutchins: firefox opening very large images, though, not flash applets15:48
freezeri don't care how low it clocks15:48
bynarieso reinstall where you already have an ext4 partition(or ext2/ext3)15:48
ManicPanicbynarie: thats good to know that it will be ok thanks15:49
freezerwill install the GNOME desktop and see if that steals less power15:49
zteamfreezer, okey, I was only half-right in that aspect15:50
bynarieManicPanic, no problem. Remember that if when you boot up and your operating system list pops up for which one to boot too, and windows isnt on the list, go in linux and run sudo update-grub. It will find all of your boot images and put them in the menu15:50
bynarieand then reboot15:50
=== Guest9784 is now known as Sleepnbum
ManicPanicbynarie: nice, i will do that15:51
zteamfreezer, however there is a setting in Nvidia-settings that let's the card change the clock dynamically, try to disable that one15:51
bynariewhen you get a chance to do it let us know how it went/if you need help15:52
zteamfreezer, if you really wanna overclock you Nvidia card you can install nvclock15:52
freezerzteam, i can only see 'adapted', performance' and auto15:52
freezermaybe that's hidden somewhere15:52
sant527i wanted to install ubuntu 14.01 lts from usb pendrive. So i wrote the iso using "dd bs=4M if=ubuntu_14.04_lts_amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb". I am able to boot on one pc, while on another pc with "phoneix awardbios" bios its not booting. it shows "verifying dmi pool data" and nothing happens15:52
freezerzteam, not overclock, but rather lock it to the lowest setting of 135MHz core clock15:53
ManicPanicbynarie: yeah i will thanks15:53
bynarieok no problem15:53
bynariesant527, maybe the bios is UEFI?15:53
freezeraaargh, and the SSD is freakin slow writing a lot of data15:54

Baakohow do i identify  ubuntu partition on a dual boot pc(windows)16:52
daftykinsgrey__: there might be a quirk to your specific model if it's hybrid graphics though, so you might want to look it up online quickly to see if anyone has done it before16:52
daftykinsBaako: what do you want to do?16:52
daftykinsstevvo22: why?16:53
Baakodelete ubuntu partition as i want to use a vm instead of dual boot16:53

agileadamI’m trying to use apt-get to install a new php5 library (php5-ldap). It’s saying that “The following packages will be upgraded” and that includes php5-common. Does this mean it would upgrade from, say php5.3 to php5.4, or will it not affect the version of PHP. I read somewhere that apt-get upgrade will only apply security updates.16:55

daftykinsJack64: oooook there we go so on line 3 you've got the intel on-die graphics, then the nvidia so it's an optimus setup. you're going to need to look into nvidia-prime installation guides, or bumblebee. try prime first17:18

awattany one?17:19
geirhajohtso: try:  sudo dpkg-reconfigure postgresql-common17:19
daftykinsJack64: ok, but nvidia-prime is the new way to do things as of 14.04, so CUDA support may hinge on that decision17:19

somsipgrazfather: are you trying to get a dpkg to manually install?17:19
somsipgrazfather: no it's not17:19

k1llumia900: please pastebin the following: "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" and "ls -al /etc/apt/sources.list.d" and pastebin that20:35
imbezolnicklasmoeller: ok. does your user howe the correct location specified in /etc/passwd?20:35
ikonialumia900: is there a reason you've not done this ?20:35
eeeenicklasmoeller: use cp -ar when you want to copy stuff and leave the permissions20:35
nicklasmoellereeee: I know, it was an accident, didn't think about it at the time20:35
imbezoleeee: -a implies -r20:36
eeeesorry cp -pvr20:36
emulHi there20:37
nicklasmoellerimbezol: yes20:37
imbezolnicklasmoeller: since you just copied you can always copy again using -a this time20:37
imbezolnicklasmoeller: or you could save time by using rsync to copy permissions and not all the data20:37
eeeenicklasmoeller: if you want you can chown -R <user>: /home/<user>/20:37
ikonialumia900: we've been through this20:37
ikonialumia900: clean install, no ppas - start again20:37
ikonialumia900: is there a reason you've not done this ?20:37
eeeenicklasmoeller: and also set the permissions to chmod -R 770 /home/<user>20:38
eeee( use sudo for both )20:38
nicklasmoellerimbezal: I could, if I hadn't deleted the original.. shame on me20:38
DaveGilkll: Appears to have run fine. No errors.20:38
nicklasmoellereeee: /home should by all means be owned by root:root right?20:38
ikonialumia900: is there a reason you have not done a clean install yet ?20:38
eeee( use sudo for the first only )20:38
imbezolnicklasmoeller: ah. yeah just do a recusive chown user:user on the user's home directory then20:38
emulSomething unusual happened to me and I couldnt find info about it on google. I got a brand new laptop with a Nvidia GTX850M and I installed the oficial drivers from the Nvidia page. The next time i tried to login it only showed the background and the mouse. Same thing for the package nvidia-current20:38
emulWhy could this be happening?20:39
eeeenicklasmoeller: /home itself? drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Oct  8 12:58 /home20:39
lumia900ikonia casue am sitting in remote location ..20:39
nicklasmoellerYes! Can you give me a check on /bin and /lib as well?20:39
ikonialumia900: ok, so stop what you are doing and wait until you are at the location20:39
popeyemul: common when people install the nvidia driver from nvidia.com and not from the repo20:39
daftykinsemul: first off, that sounds like an nvidia optimus laptop so you can't just use nvidia drivers directly20:39
ikonialumia900: then do a clean install as we discussed and move forward as discussed20:39
nicklasmoellerI haven't touched it as far as I recall, but it's owned by my user20:39
eeeenicklasmoeller: that's odd20:40
nicklasmoellerbut is /bin and /lib normally owned by root? That's what I came in for20:40
nicklasmoellerIt seemed pretty odd to me as well20:40
eeeeyes, both are owned by root.20:40
imbezolnicklasmoeller: you can likely do a "sudo chown -R root:root /bin /lib" safely20:40
daftykinsemul: look into nvidia-prime20:40
imbezolnicklasmoeller: my system has nothing in either of those directories that's not root:root20:41
at_workHow do I disable the requirement I have a valid gateway during installation (doing a preseed'd netinstall)?20:41
k1llumia900: i think that zentyal line is wrong you added there20:41
nicklasmoellerThanks! I will give it a go, and be back later. Might be I get it up and running again. Thanks guys, have a nice evening!20:41
imbezolnicklasmoeller: good luck20:42
emulpopey: i reinstalled ubuntu and then installed the repo drivers (nvidia-common package)20:43
emulpopey: and i basically got the same output20:43
emuldaftykins: would using bumblebee fix the problem?20:44
daftykinsemul: nvidia-prime is the newer alternative to bumblebee20:44
daftykinsemul: yeah you can't just install even repo based drivers without prime or bumblebee20:45
emuldaftykins: so i would have to install this before and then the driver or the order wouldnt mather?20:45
daftykinsemul: plenty of guides online about nvidia-prime20:46

Jordan_UFinetundra: You have a buggy BIOS that doesn't properly handle large drives. If you make a separate small /boot/ partition near the beginning of the drive it will work around this bug.20:53

ubottuchristian_: Vai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (per entrare, scrivi « /join #ubuntu-it » senza virgolette)20:55
christian_ok ok20:56
Jordan_UFinetundra: The bug in your BIOS is why you booted to a grub rescue shell rather that booting Ubuntu successfully. I can tell that it's a problem with your BIOS not handling large drives properly from the error message "attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0'".20:57
knosysI am having problems getting it to work, i would appreciate some help, maybe someone know's what i have to do. http://apt.wxwidgets.org/dists/  Im supposed to sign PGP key from here a curl, to get the files for my distro. But there are files for every distro except trusty.20:57
Jordan_UFinetundra: A re-install might by chance get you a working configuration, if all of the files needed to boot happen to get placed near the beginning of the drive by chance, but it *will* break again eventually unless you create a small /boot/ partition near the beginning of the drive (or use another work around, like configuring grub to use native drivers to bypass your buggy BIOS).20:58
FinetundraJordan_U, i see. well the install is literally at its end so we shall see what happens20:59
Finetundra ok, it now says "minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. for the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions."21:02
Finetundrawhere to now?21:03
Bashing-omFinetundra: I am late to the party, but, seems the system is not finding the boot code. What results -> ls -lh (hd0,mdsos1)/boot , search -f /sbin/init < -.21:06
FinetundraBashing-om, so what do i do?21:07
Bashing-omFinetundra: You are presently at a grub > prompt, no ? If yes, what results from my last grub terminal commands ?21:07
eeeeFinetundra: there's a typo, msdos121:08
Bashing-omeeee: Thanks ! did bot see my error !21:08
eeeeBashing-om: no problem :)21:09
FinetundraBashing-om, "unknown argument '-f'"21:10
Jordan_UFinetundra: The easiest thing to do, that will lead to a long term solution, is to re-install and be sure to configure a small /boot/ partition near the beginning of the drive. Do you know how to do that with Ubuntu's installer?21:12
Bashing-omFinetundra: UnGood ! .. Ok, how bout -> set <- a lot of output .. what is in the line "root=" ?21:12
FinetundraBashing-om, by removinf '-f' resulted in a set of dates, times, days, and files\21:13

daftykinsAR45: check vsync in nvidia-settings21:16
FinetundraJordan_U, can't find command 'nativedisk'21:16
Bashing-omFinetundra: well, grub knows where the boot files "should" be. Any return now from -> ls -lh (hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub/grub.cfg, if so we can try and boot this sucker .21:16
metallicit detects other OSs in the hard drive. But you can always write down a grub file by hand21:16
JCTi tried the custom .deb file the download site provided https://dolphin-emu.org/download/ but ubuntu software system says i can't download it21:16
Jordan_UBashing-om: All paths are relative to $root unless otherwise specified, so you can just "ls /boot/grub/grub.cfg".21:17

daftykinsemul: ugh adding a PPA, yeah i wouldn't do that21:25
metallicFinetundra, I suggest you reinstall your OS overwriting your existing version, writing grub configuration is a delicate thing, you need to know what you're doing.21:25

FinetundraJordan_U, file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/nativedisk.mod' not found21:27
Jordan_UBashing-om: "nativedisk" is a command that will insmod the modules for grub's native disk drivers (with no arguments, all of them, or you can specify pata,ahci,ehci, etc), then it will do the cleanup needed to fix $prefix to point to the native disks, whose names will have changed.21:27

rangeles2276bubbasaures I have no idea all I know is that I have an Intel RAID at 4TB21:30
emuldaftykins: yes exactly21:30
bubbasauresrangeles2276, Ah raid no real idea here, others here know this.21:31
daftykinsemul: what prime guide did you follow?21:31
rangeles2276bubbasaures the weird thing is on first install it worked great then I did the system update which prompted me, but not Upgrade just the regular updates and thats when it broke21:31
rangeles2276bubbasaures so I'm pretty sure there was a Grub update and it broke it. I don't understand what the heck is the issue with this Grub thing21:32
daftykinsemul: also what model computer is this?21:32
emuldaftykins: i just googled it and the most commented thing was: "you got to install prime to get optimus running" so i installed it and then "you have to pick the card in the nvidia X settings". yes but i dont have a desktop running anymore21:33
rangeles2276bubbasaures I've been trying to google for a solution but nothing21:33
Jordan_UFinetundra: Run "ls -l" (No other arguments) then "insmod ahci".21:33
Finetundrafine, i give. i'll reinstall again21:33
daftykinsemul: ok so not a full guide21:33
rangeles2276bubbasaures I can't even find what command I should enter at the Grub prompt21:33
emuldaftykins: exactly21:34
Bashing-omFinetundra: Jordan_U -> ls -al /boot/grub/i386-pc/ <- IF not a lot of files there. Then for sure a bad install ???21:34
Jordan_Urangeles2276: What did it prompt you about? What was your answer?21:34
rangeles2276bubbasaures I just need to load the OS because the damn thing loaded once prior to the updates21:34
Jordan_UBashing-om: The install is fine, Finetundra just has a buggy BIOS that can't properly handle large drives.21:34
emuldaftykins: every guide says basically the same thing. just purge everything u had relating to nvidia and then install the newest drivers and the primer21:35
rangeles2276Jordan_U no all I get is the Grub CLI thing21:35
bubbasauresrangeles2276, There is a boot script you could run that gives you details, you could probably boot in with supergrub and fix from Ubuntu.21:35
revnoahI'm having trouble getting mail set up for some local web development. I've tried postfix and sendmail but haven't had much luck. Does anyone have a particular method they would recommend?21:35
FinetundraJordan_U, could it just be that the bios is old?21:35
daftykinsemul: and all bumblebee packages have been purged too?21:35
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Earlier you said "I did the system update which prompted me, but not Upgrade just the regular updates and thats when it broke". My previous question was in reference to that.21:35
emuldaftykins: i didnt even install them21:35
rangeles2276Jordan_U all it said was to hit TAB to see a list of commands21:36
Jordan_UFinetundra: Well, older BIOSs are more likely to be buggy in this way, as there were fewer large drives when they were being developed and tested.21:36
Bashing-omJordan_U: Ho Kay ..As I have seen your advise, the solution is create the /boot partition upon re-installation .21:36
daftykinsemul: so what's the make + model of laptop?21:36
rangeles2276Jordan_U yes the regular updates that you get after a fresh install21:36

rangeles2276Jordan_U it ask me if I wanted to upgrade to 14.04 lts and I said no then I clicked on "install updates"21:37
Jordan_Umetallic: Because their BIOS can't access portions of the drive past a certain limit, meaning that all boot files need to be within that limit. If their all stored in a small partition near the beginning of the drive, you guarantee that that will be true.21:37
emuldaftykins: http://askubuntu.com/questions/507969/compatibility-ubuntu-and-msi-ge60 im going to try this21:38
metallicSo when I install my bootloader in /dev/sda, am I doing it wrong? should I create a partition and install it there?21:38
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Is your RAID array mdraid or FakeRAID? (If it's configured in your BIOS menus then it's almost certainly FakeRAID).21:38
rangeles2276Jordan_U I also tried re-installing the system and it does not work, still the same damn Grub thing21:38
rangeles2276ah no it is an Intel LSI RAID21:39
rangeles2276Jordan_U I actually have a RAID Card21:39
Jordan_Umetallic: Even for Finetundra, grub's boot sector will be installed to /dev/sda, it's just /boot/grub and its files that will be in a separate partition. And unless you have a buggy BIOS, you don't need a separate partition.21:39
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Still FakeRAID.21:39
rangeles2276Jordan_U what?21:40
rangeles2276Jordan_U how can that be21:40
rangeles2276Jordan_U ok at this point I don't care I just want to fix this, I've been fighting with this thing since 9am this morning21:41

Jordan_Urangeles2276: Are you currently at the grub shell?21:42
rangeles2276Jordan_U no, let me turn it back on21:43
Jordan_Urangeles2276: If so, please run "echo $root" then "search --file /boot/grub/grub.cfg" and post the output of the two commands here.21:43
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Are you currently booted from a GNU/Linux LiveCD/USB? If so, stay booted into it for now.21:44

Finetundraok Jordan_U, what do i do once i'm at the partition disks screen?21:46

metallicand mount it as boot21:47
rangeles2276Jordan_U ok I ran those commands you asked and I got "hd0, gpt2"21:48
ActionParsnipnetyyrrazqabbc: use iptables or gufw etc21:48
dmn123I want to figure out what my current netdev_backlog value is - I know I can check net.core.netdev_max_backlog via sysctl - but how can I figure out how much is used?21:48
Finetundrahow big does the ext4 partition have to be?21:49
metallicit is for the boot folder so... not much21:49
Jordan_UFinetundra: If you want LVM, try setting it up with the installer normally, unless you're dual booting with another OS it will probably set up what you need as a side affect of how the installer generally configures LVM. You should see it create a small ext3/4 /boot/ partition as the first partition in the drive.21:50
Finetundra2gigs fine?21:50
Jordan_UFinetundra: 2 GiB is fine, yes.21:50
netyyrrazqabbcActionParsnip, i have try gufw but i cannot find how to block applications use gufw21:50
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Both commands gave the same output?21:50
rangeles2276Jordan_U yes21:50
metallicFinetundra, yes, actually my boot folder is 114 MiB and works fine XD21:51
metallicbut it is ok21:51
ActionParsnipdmn123: sysctl –p sys.net.core.netdev_max_backlog  maybe21:51
Jordan_Urangeles2276: OK. Please try running "cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg". It should print your grub.cfg to the screen, which should be a lot of output that isn't particularly important at the moment. What would be important is if it prints an error message instead.21:51
Finetundrai'm gonna try LVM first21:51
reisiohans_: ohio21:52
dmn123ActionParsnip: that will show me the max value, but I want to know how high it is right now - not the maximum21:52

rangeles2276Jordan_U unless I'm doing something work in the process21:54
netyyrrazqabbcActionParsnip, thx sir.21:54
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Did you make sure that your /boot/ partition was near the beginning of the drive?21:54
dmn123ActionParsnip: The question is not how to set or read the MAX value - the question is how to read the current size of the backlog21:54
rangeles2276Jordan_U I let ubuntu decide as I did not do anything extra21:55
Jordan_Urangeles2276: That is the critical part of having a separate /boot/ partition for working around this BIOS bug.21:55
rangeles2276Jordan_U man this is crazy, this bug was not there before what caused this21:55
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Ubuntu's installer doesn't create a separate /boot/ partition by default, the only way to add one during install is via completely manual partitioning (or, as a side affect, possibly by configuring LVM).21:56
ActionParsnipdmn123: netstat -an | grep -c -i SYN_RECV21:56
Jordan_Urangeles2276: The bug was always there, you just weren't affected by it until your grub.cfg happened to be written farther into the drive than your BIOS can access.21:57
dmn123ActionParsnip: thanks!21:57
rangeles2276Jordan_U ok how do I use the LVM on 12.04 LTS21:57
ActionParsnipdmn123: all I did was search the web...... took me what...30 seconds?21:57
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Don't aim for using LVM unless you really want LVM.21:57
dmn123ActionParsnip: that’s wonderful!21:57
ActionParsnipJordan_U: +121:57
rangeles2276Jordan_U ok then what just go with "something else"21:58
ActionParsnipdmn123: so, why couldn't you find that?21:58
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Are you planning to re-install Ubuntu?21:58
dmn123ActionParsnip: Dear friend, I also found http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/12985/how-to-check-rx-ring-max-backlog-and-max-syn-backlog-size and it’s a good start. The problem is I hoped there is a more general solution. Because I try to figure out that for many ways.21:58
rangeles2276Jordan_U at this point I have no choice I have to re-install it21:58
Jordan_Urangeles2276: Then yes. It's also possible to reconfigure an existing install to add a separate /boot/ partition, but it's usually a complicated and extremely long (in time, as you have to move a partition to the right) process.21:59
dmn123ActionParsnip: so my hope was there is something where the kernel tracks the current values - but it seems nothing like that exists21:59
Jordan_Urangeles2276: You of course haven't lost any data, and if it's helpful to you I can help you boot your system quickly, without fixing the problem permanently.21:59
ActionParsnipdmn123: its in netstat as its the status of the networking21:59
rangeles2276Jordan_U ok how do I know that the boot partition is at the beginning of the disk22:00
sparticle_is this a good place to ask a question about 70-persistent-net-rules on Ubuntu Server 12.04?22:01
Jordan_Urangeles2276: In most GUIs the partitions are shown graphically with left being closer to the beginning and right closer to the end.22:01
Jordan_Urangeles2276: So your /boot/ partition should be the left most partition, and should be about 1 GiB large.22:01
dmn123ActionParsnip: sadly it’s a bit more complicate - I have the issue that the network `drops` random, but it could because of load, or out of sockets or backlog etc .. I just hoped there is a simple way to check all current limits vs there current values22:01
chrisss123456hey guys does anyone use Evolution?22:02
metallicI prefer thunderbird :D22:03
ActionParsnipdmn123: is it a wireless interface?22:03
rangeles2276Jordan_U ok let me try that22:03
rangeles2276Jordan_U thanks22:03
dmn123ActionParsnip: no ;-) it’s a server - or let’s say several and they run LXC with a lot of containers22:03
reisiochrisss123456: some ones do22:03
chrisss123456metallic: I'm really not liking the way thunderbird handles things and want to switch to Evolution22:03
Jordan_Urangeles2276: You're welcome.22:03
chrisss123456metallic: but i have a couple concerns on security, though i might be just a noob22:03
Jordan_Urangeles2276: And you just have to set the partition's mountpoint as "/boot/".22:03
chrisss123456reisio: do you know anything about it's security22:04
metallicchrisss123456, XDXD I am not that good I just find it easy to deal with it22:04
reisiochrisss123456: should be plenty secure, why?22:04
ActionParsnipdmn123: I see, we use zones at work instead :-)22:05
Jordan_UFinetundra: Is the installer creating a small /boot/ partition at the beginning of the drive for you?22:05
sparticle_is this a good place to ask a question about 70-persistent-net-rules on Ubuntu Server 12.04?22:05
chrisss123456reisio: I'm sure, but im trying to configure it and the email uses STARTTLS but thats not an option for the outgoing mail, so its just not secured (?)22:05
reisiosparticle_: ask it and see22:05
umoukunsparticle_: why not22:05
FinetundraJordan_U, i believe so22:05
dmn123ActionParsnip: sad think is - it worked well for month/years - and out of a sudden it started .. so might be an updated.. but not sure, yet ;/22:05
reisiochrisss123456: you realize that email is sent to random 3rd party servers, and is always insecure, yes?22:06
ActionParsnipdmn123: id check to see if any updates made it happen22:06
reisiothe only thing you can secure easily is your connection to where you're fetching email from22:06
chrisss123456reisio: fair enough.22:06
reisiowhich is not remotely the entire line of transmission22:06
umoukunwhat is the client?22:06
reisiouse xmpp if you want secure, reliable electronic communication22:06
Jordan_UFinetundra: OK. Please keep me updated on how this works out.22:07
chrisss123456reisio: thanks :) but what if its a company email from one employee to another?22:07
sparticle_OK thanks: I have just replaced a  physical server with a new one before first boot I removed 70-persistent-net rules as per forum advice. Expectation was that a new file would be created with the new Ethernet adaptor info etc. However all I have is a stub file that has no adapter info in it.22:07
FinetundraJordan_U, i'll try to22:07
reisiochrisss123456: what if it is22:07
chrisss123456reisio: as in, sure its unsafe since youre sending it off to some other server, but what if its the "same" server?22:08
umoukunuser: welcome from whonix22:08
reisiochrisss123456: then it doesn't matter whether you encrypt the connection or not22:09
reisioeither way it basically doesn't matter22:09
reisiodoesn't matter if you only encrypt part of the process with a remote server, doesn't matter if you encrypt while connecting to a server in the same building22:10

Is there a way to force Ubuntu to recreate the file with the etehrnet adaptor info?22:10
chrisss123456reisio: ok, but then what is the incentive for secure emails? just trying to understand22:10
umoukunliquidcandy: goto newegg and look for one?22:10
reisioliquidcandy: $350 with the ssd I doubt it, but the rest sure22:10
FinetundraJordan_U, should i tell it to do auto security updates?22:10
reisioliquidcandy: with a 32gb or so ssd, potentially22:10
umoukunyou can get one with an ssd for under a grand22:10
reisiochrisss123456: that's a good question22:11
rangeles2276Jordan_U can I use Gparted to create the partitions?22:11
reisiochrisss123456: false sense of security? :p22:11
reisiochrisss123456: all you're really protecting is your login, you see22:11
chrisss123456hahaha alright :) well anyway thanks for the help :)22:12
f0steranyone know how I can start/stop or reset one of my network-manager connections from teh command line ?22:12
reisiochrisss123456: any data you actually send via an email is insecure22:12
reisiochrisss123456: so what you're protecting is the ability to impersonate yourself22:12
chrisss123456reisio: yes, so essentially the "asking the server for downloading the emails locally" but not actually sending anything22:12
reisiothat is, the ability to send new messages, authentically, as yourself22:12
Jordan_UFinetundra: I would say yes, though that's unrelated to your other problem.22:12
reisio(even though anyone can spoof your email address)22:12
reisiochrisss123456: yeah22:12
FinetundraJordan_U, ok22:12
reisiowhich is really the less important thing to protect IMO22:12
chrisss123456reisio: cool, i get it now :) thanks a bunch!22:13
reisioI would want the actual sent/received messages to be confidential22:13
reisioand with email they almost never are22:13
reisiochrisss123456: and again, if it's a local email server, and you only access it locally, it's fairly pointless22:13
reisiounless your local network is massively insecure, but then you have larger problems22:14
chrisss123456yea fair point.22:14

dmn123I often see upstart-udev-bridge[25150]: Disconnected from Upstart in my syslog I’m unsure what it means or if I shoudl be worried23:35
luciani have a question23:36
tontrehello all23:36
Bashing-omFinetundra: I run minimal with xfce .. xfce maybe somewhat dated now, not good support for GTK3 .23:36
lucianis a suggestion, really23:38
FinetundraBashing-om, should i run "install xubuntu-desktop" or how would i install xfce23:38
kandinskisame problem as in here: Wheezy/Stable)23:38

ubuntuaddictedhow to I fix held broken packages? i'm trying to install libgles2-mesa-dev but it's not letting me23:38

kandinskisame problem as in here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25662067/font-awesome-doesnt-work-on-linux-mint-1723:39
FinetundraBashing-om, right now i have a terminal gui23:39
Bashing-omFinetundra: "install xubuntu-desktop" get you all the bells and whistles, most things pre-configured. xfce4 is small, and light and fast .23:40
FinetundraBashing-om, so would it be 'install xfce-desktop'23:41
FinetundraBashing-om, or would i be better off w/ lxde or lxqt?23:41
RainbowhatHi, Exec getting permission denied on one of the Dir. Checked WHOAMI , got www-data. Changed owner of Dir & chmod still getting permission denied.23:43
Bashing-omFinetundra: no, top  install xfce4 -> sudo apt-get install xorg , sudo apt-get install xfce4 , then there is some additional configurtions to do at a later time, to start the desktop from the "install xfce4" -> startxfce4 <-.23:44
daftykinsbennypr0fane: weird, can only suggest deleting it manually then.23:44
daftykinsbennypr0fane: i'd still like to see dpkg's output though from the command i mentioned23:44
lucianhow do i install xfce desktop on ubuntu 12.0423:45
Bashing-omFinetundra: What you want for the desk top is relative to what you want. There is no best, just what works best for you. That said, I do like xfce4 .23:45
RainbowhatHi, Exec getting permission denied on one of the Dir. Checked WHOAMI , got www-data. Changed owner of Dir & chmod still getting permission denied. Owner of the directory root www-data with -rwxrwsrwx23:45
enyclucian: is there a metapackage in package manager ?  xfce4-desktop or similar ?23:45
bennypr0fanedaftykins, do you mean this one: dpkg -l | grep apache23:46
Finetundrahow do i set what ehternet port my machine uses?23:46
daftykinsbennypr0fane: correct, pastebin please23:46
FinetundraBashing-om, i too like xfce, but i also need something that'll boot up from my regular monitor23:47
luciani searched for it... it gives me a lot of things =)))23:47
bennypr0fanelucian I would try installing just xfce423:47
Finetundraspeaking of which, how do i set the resolution for grub?23:48
AR45Does anyone know how to add sublime text 3 commands to the terminal?23:48
bennypr0fanexfce4 is the metapackage23:48
ubuntuaddictedhow do i get around these dependency issues? libgles2-mesa : Depends: libglapi-mesa (= 10.1.3-0ubuntu0.2) but 10.2~git1402150730.1020d8~gd~s is to be installed23:48
lucianis there a terminal command for that?23:48
Bashing-omFinetundra: The install should find and set up a wired connection, you will not have a "Network Manager" .23:49
Bashing-omFinetundra: I set resolution for frub in grub's default file " /etc/default/grub " .23:49
bennypr0fanedaftykins, that outputs nothing right now, zero chars23:49
FinetundraBashing-om, well there are 2 ethernet ports but it doesn't seem to like either23:49
bennypr0fanelucian, sudo apt-get install xfce4   you mean?23:50
Bashing-omFinetundra: I have 3, and I have set in 'eth1' from " /etc/network/interfaces " .23:51
daftykinsbennypr0fane: oh, trailing * again23:51
bennypr0fanedaftykins, same output23:51
daftykinsbennypr0fane: actually no it should've been fine as is, hrmm23:51
luciangotta love terminal =))))23:52
laputahi, anyone knows is there any way to list all cronjobs will start in next 1 hours or any time can be specified ?23:52
Finetundralocked up so i had to reboot23:53
bennypr0fanedaftykins, did I show this? http://pastie.org/963592723:53
lucianso, after sudo apt-get install xfce4, anything else i need to know in order to get it fully functional?23:53
Bashing-omFinetundra: # The resolution used on graphical terminal >>GRUB_GFXMODE=1600x900 // <- my setting.23:53
bennypr0faneit didn't delete the config directories that weren't empty23:53
daftykinsbennypr0fane: looks like anything you added that put things in apache's paths prevented removal...23:54
bennypr0fanedaftykins, yes, but why? it seems so absurd23:54
OerHekslaputa, easy way is a gui sudo apt-get install gnome-schedule23:54
Bashing-omlucian: To start the desktop from the terminal -> startxfce4 <-.23:55
FinetundraBashing-om, well my monitor doesn't seem to like the default so i'll have to set it around 1280x720 or something of the sort23:55
daftykinsbennypr0fane: so you don't get angry at it for deleting your data.23:55
RudyValenciaHi, I'm using Xubuntu LTS 14.04 and I can't seem to record well with Audacity like I could on Windows. There's no noise cancellation and the recording skips. Any reason why that is?23:55
bennypr0fanedaftykins, but I want it to delete my data, and I thought there was no way to say that more clearly than "purge"....23:55
daftykinsbennypr0fane: the other programs you installed aren't bit and are packages, so i'd just remove the lot and be done with it. make backups if you want anything23:55
Bashing-omFinetundra: Sounds like a good time to investigate the tool "xrandr" .. see -> man xrandr < -23:56
bennypr0fane"aren't big"?23:56
daftykinsbennypr0fane: ugh yes but this is a different scenario, you could quite easily have been a user that comes in here angry that a purge removed files that weren't apache config, but are in your document root23:56
daftykinsyes, big.23:56
bennypr0faneRudyValencia, might be because of the different sound server23:57
RudyValenciabennypr0fane: you mean pulseaudio?23:57
ObrienDaveRudyValencia, set your source to default23:57
FinetundraBashing-om, last time i used that it presented quite a fuss23:58
bennypr0faneRudyValencia, yes, or alsa, or jack. but those should be responsible only for playback i guess23:58
Finetundraalso, i now can't get past grub without getting a blank black screen23:58
Bashing-omFinetundra: IF you are now booting to grub, from grub the grub command -> vbeinfo <- might be instructive - DO not want to burn up a monitor by overdriving it.23:58
RudyValenciaObrienDave: that's a lot better, thanks23:59
=== night-owl2 is now known as night-owl
FinetundraBashing-om, i think its actually displaying to low23:59
