givelloEriC^^: nope. still on 14.04.100:28
EriC^^Bashing-om: it should already have found them00:28
givelloEriC^^: what happened is that it randomly stopped working. first I didn't have any graphical display, x failed to start and I was thrown into a terminal after some blinking00:28
givelloEriC^^: I tried to diagnose the problem, but apparently messed it up00:29
k1lxTorettox: e19 lists the depencies on the left side on the site you got the packages from. so make sure you have them installed00:29

givelloBashing-om: two hours ago actually. I should go to bed soonish, I work at 9 tomorroz01:15
stevecamstormzen, shred does a little bit more, i dont use shred, but from what i understand it makes it next to impossible to read old data by writing random data and then zero'ing it out01:16
stormzenas long as I'm here ( and waiting for my USB to finish shredding ), has anyone ever attempted to create a partitioned USB drive, first partition something like ultimate boot CD, second multisystem for booting multiple live CD distros?01:16
stormzenstevecam, Didn't think about it writing old data.  Yeah, that's a little overkill.01:16
bekksstormzen: I've successfully created a multiboot USB with about a dozen images.01:17
EriC^^givello: maybe try to add GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x76801:17
stormzen.. or has anyone installed Centos or RHEL 7 after installing Ubuntu 14 ( with or without rewriting the MBR? )  I did it without, and haven't been able to boot the new Centos system.  ( Can't figure out how to tell grub2 to boot it )01:18
Bashing-omgivello: Understand about the z time for sleep. I see nothing in the grub file to alter booting, looks default. Back now again to why the 'ctl' key is not recognized to permit booting with the changed kerenl command line.01:18
stormzenbekks, Did you document what you did , or follow a document?01:18
givelloEriC^^: the fact that my screen is 1680x1050 isn't relevant in that number I assume01:19
bekksstormzen: I just followed http://www.pendrivelinux.com/multiboot-create-a-multiboot-usb-from-linux/01:19
stevecamstormzen, probably a little off-topic these questions, there is ##linux, if creating multiple partitions doesnt work you can also boot from disk images you have stored on the device, may be a little more practical doing it that way depending on your use01:19
EriC^^givello: i don't think so01:19

stormzenstevecam, did you say that my questions were off topic?  ( Asking for clarification )01:22
givelloEriC^^: you want me to change the resolution of grub too, right?01:22
stevecamstormzen, yes, but just an educated guess, im not an op01:22
EriC^^( do that before update-grub )01:23
stormzenok.  I was going to ask if that included the one about update-grub not finding Centos7.01:23
givelloEriC^^: ok, done01:26

EriC^^givello: ok, if you want you can try to press "e" and add vga=79201:30
EriC^^givello: i like that, it helped me with a vm issue once with grub01:30
smtbi upgraded to 14.10 but my unity does not work, i have tried everything in the forums, no luck01:30
givelloI wish I had partitionned that correctly with a separate /home01:30
EriC^^actually not grub, the vm wouldn't change to higher resolutions, but i guess it's worth a shot01:30
givelloId have reinstalled it already01:30
somsipvinniec: Maybe only Chromium and Konqueror (maybe QtWeb & Midori too) in the repos? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_web_browsers#WebKit-based01:30
smtbso i see desktop but no menu bar01:30
stevecamsmtb, i had a similar issue, my solution was to just stop upgradingf and do fresh installs01:31
givelloEriC^^: it's really a pain to reboot all the time, so I'll try it this time, but I don't promise I'll log back on01:31
smtbthanks, is there a way to do this from tty w/o losing any data?01:31

ubottuIf you want to edit your Autostart programs, open the Unity dash and search for Startup Programs. If you're on XFCE, use menu -> Settings -> Settings Manager -> Session and Startup, if you're on KDE, use Kickoff -> Computer -> System Settings -> Autostart. For more details see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup. For LXDE see http://ubottu.com/y/401:46
Avicwhat light desktop environment should i install with freeNX ? i have trusty. thanks01:46
justin_pizzaI have a xeon 1231 cpu, and I want to use kvm.  When I check 'KVM-Ok' INFO says my cpu does not support kvm extension.  This doesn't seem right.01:46
bekksAvic: xfce or lxde01:46
Avicthey work with xreenx?01:47
bekksjustin_pizza: Why not?01:47
Avicthey work with freenx?01:47
bekksAvic: every DE "works" with NX, some more, some less.01:47
justin_pizzabekks: because its a newer cpu and looking at spec's it supports virtualization.01:47
bekksAvic: they all "work" - but the experience is what matters. Unity using NX is pretty - dont use it.01:48
justin_pizzabekks:  is there a reason why the xeon 1231 wouldn't support kvm extensions?01:48
Avici have installed gnome, kubuntu and xfce. i cant see the desktop with none, i'm getting desperate really now.01:48
bekksjustin_pizza: maybe they are disabled in the BIOS.01:49
justin_pizzabekks: I enabled it in bios01:49
bekksAvic: nxserver/nxclient or freenx?01:50
Avicfreenx, i installed successfuly, but cant see desktop enviornment and don't know how to configure it01:50
ObrienDaveAvic, there is a dropdowm on the logon screen01:51
bekksGet rid of that crap and just use NoMachines nxclient/nxserver 4.0.x version01:51
firebbbekks: :) I 'using lubuntu01:51
Avicin the nomachine client i only see virtual desktops,01:52
bekksAvic: Thats how freenx is intended to work.01:52
bekksAvic: Use NoMachines 4.0 version.01:52
Avici even installed vnc4server, but gets a gray screen only01:52
bekksAvic: see above.01:52
bekksAvic: https://www.nomachine.com/download01:53
Ben64or use something easy like vncserver01:54
Avici installed the vnc server too, but only see gray screen01:54
bekksAvic: Either use VNC or NX.01:54
Ben64because nothing is running on that screen, run something and you will see it01:54
Aviconly have 4.3 version here01:55
bekksAvic: https://www.nomachine.com/download/linux&id=101:56
Ben64run the vncserver, connect to it, open a terminal on the server and run DISPLAY=:1 xterm01:56
Ben64or maybe a different DISPLAY number depending on what vncserver creates01:56
Avici want the freenx in the server and the nomachine client in pc01:57
Avicwith windows01:57
Ben64that is more difficult and less supported than using vnc01:58
Avici was using debian with vnc, i changed to ubuntu trysty to install nx01:58

Guest56237hey peoples, i could easily be in wrong place  here please advise - after a year of 100 linux distro crashes, i have arrived here, unbootable again, for you to help me save trusty, not murder linus torvalds, and move to redmond..02:04
Avicwell i need some gui, not full desktop, but want to be the faster i can get.02:04
daftykinsGuest56237: you can change OS if you like.02:05
Guest56237i have single 140.04 install in lvm, fsck crashes on boot, cannot get to grub, cannot start x from root#02:05
Guest56237cannot resize lvm from 14.04 live disk @ gparted..02:05
Ben64Avic: why do you need gui at all on a server? and why must it be freenx? you're making things so much more difficult than it needs to be02:05
daftykinsAvic: GUIs don't belong on servers.02:05
Guest56237if you friggin said that to me i will kill linux torvalds right NOW OK !!!?02:06
daftykinsGuest56237: you're not going to get any help here acting like that.02:06
Avicso you think that fluxbox is my better option?02:08
Guest56237the good news is that i am not really angry or a killer, totally kidding, since you are so smart .... well, whatever - windows people - HELL MAC people are more fun than this..02:08
Avicbut its difficult toconfigure02:08
Guest56237just tell me if you said the gui bit because i am in the wrong chat room and dont patronize me, i am looking for desktop support IF ubuntu still supports the software that you do not "sell"02:10
Aviccould vm be a solution daftykins?02:10
daftykinsGuest56237: you're not making any sense. form a coherent well written sentence and maybe someone can help you02:11
daftykinsAvic: what's the overall goal here... what do you want to use the VPS for?02:11
ObrienDaveguest56237, redmond is obviously about your speed02:11
Avicmostely is cli, but some programs are used with gui, i like them more.02:12
daftykinsAvic: i'm talking about the actual *tasks*02:13
daftykinsmentioning the programs could be useful though02:13
Avicso it should be some gui, but little. i need a lighter gui02:13

sacarlsonafter_r: you can also monitor what app is using and how much bandwidth with nethogs app04:32
after_rthats cool04:34
sacarlsonafter_r: I still think you could write an app that first monitors and records each app that it detects as touching the network.  then activate alarm to play a sound when a new app is detected that is not on the your know app list04:38
sacarlsonafter_r: you can later also look at the log to see any new aditions and determine if they should be added to the ok no sound needed list or look to analize why they touch the net04:40
sacarlsonafter_r: I you want I can help you write it, if you don't find any apps that already do that04:40

wiiw udev            2.0G  8.0K  2.0G    1% /dev04:53
AmnesiaHazeA concept known as port knocking is a way of shielding processes that fit into the latter description. Port knocking works by covering the ports associated with a process behind a firewall until a specific, predetermined sequence of network activity occurs. At this point, the port knocking service reconfigures the firewall to allow access to the protected application.04:53

ValduareIf I am on my main router I cant access servers that are under the same router…. but if I loginto wifi on a router thats plugged into the main router then I can access things fine… what would cause that   other non-linux computers can access servers just fine when on main router...05:55

nusrwhat did i say about people knowing how to do stuff on ubuntu06:25
taken2cfhowlett: The other issue has nothing to do with Ubuntu, and everything to do with Google/Chrome06:25
PitchFthis reminds me of the days you d have to install codecs on windows to watchy vids06:25
cfhowletttaken2, exceeds my knowledge.  ask away.06:25
=== rc0mbs is now known as rcombs
PitchFdont linux vlc come with the codecs embebed?06:26
taken2cfhowlett: The problem is the Chrome on Chrome OS and therefore Chrome on Linux, do not support HD video in Netflix06:26
PitchFthats why you install firefox06:26
taken2cfhowlett: But, that has to be resolved by Google/Netflix06:26
Tamarindi by mistake unionstalled python from my gnome ubuntu 12.04 using terminal..now the desktoop manager is gone.. how do i regain it ?06:27
cfhowletttaken2, indeed.  best o fluck06:27
taken2PicthF: Netflix does not run in Firefox on Linux06:27
sacarlsontaken2: send me your netflix account number and I'll check it out06:27
sacarlsontaken2: but here in thailand we need to run netflix over vpn06:27
PitchFi cant im not american06:27
taken2PitchF: Well, to be more specific, Netflix does not run on ANY browser but Chrome without silerverlight06:27
PitchFnetflix doesent work here as is06:28
nusrtaken2: can't you use user agent to change it to chrome?06:28
taken2nusr: no, you can't do that06:28
PitchFdosent run on opera?06:28
taken2nusr: I have had mixed success using a user agent string in Chrome to say I am using chrome on Windows 81.06:28
PitchFopera is chromebased06:28
taken2Chrome on Mac/Windows can do HD video in Netflix, but not on Chrome OS or Linux06:29
PitchFbut netflix dosent work in europe06:29
taken2PicthF: Netflix is now in many European countries06:29
sacarlsontaken2: seems moonlight will work for silverlight replacement http://www.mono-project.com/docs/web/moonlight/06:30
PitchFmy connection only goes up to 720p06:30
PitchFno more bandwide06:30
somsip!tab | taken206:30
ubottutaken2: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.06:30
sacarlsontaken2: or I guess now it's pipelight http://www.itworld.com/article/2697813/enterprise-software/install-silverlight-alternative-pipelight-in-ubuntu-14-04.html06:31
taken2I can use my PS3 to watch netflix in Super HD06:31
PitchFi hate tab completion on command line cause if the beepper06:31
taken2but the PS3 is noisy and is not a regular desktop computer06:31
taken2so, I bought the Chromebox06:32
PitchFi dunno who had thought it was a good idea06:32
sacarlsontaken2: test out pipelight and tell us how it works for you06:32
taken2sacarlson: Netflix is moving away from silverlight. The whole point is there will be no more "hacks" or workarounds06:33
PitchFtheres a new version of silverlight06:33
PitchFi didnt installed it06:33
sacarlsontaken2: just download every movie tv show on the planet with eztv.it06:33
PitchFmaybe you can use it on wine06:34

PitchFive never used it06:34
taken2hmm. Just experienced my first crash06:34
sacarlsonis netflix legal?  I guess it is06:35
somsipsacarlson: that torrent site certainly it06:35
PitchFbetter use tha kickass06:35
somsips/is/contains illegally shared content/ (same difference really)06:35
Surendilnight everyone06:36
taken2sacarlson: Anyway, as I was writing before the things crashed, Netflix is abandoning silverlight, and the whole point is that it will work natively (via Chrome) on all platforms without "hacks" or workarounds06:36
PitchFthat should work06:37
PitchFi never used it06:37
cfhowlettFlannel, thank you06:37
taken2I'm going to trash this install and reinstall 14.10 and see if the restricted package thing works in 14.1006:38
FlannelPitchF: Please keep this channel legal, and on-topic, thanks.06:38
somsipcfhowlett: that was Pitchf being kicked was it?06:38
PitchFthats not legal?06:38
somsipcfhowlett: ignore ^^06:38
PitchFtheres this site on the internet06:38
PitchFmust be legal06:38
PitchFgona try it see if it works allright06:39
nusrtaken2: maybe select "installed additional 3rd party stuff..codecs mp3 etc" when prompted during the installation.06:39
taken2nusr: maybe that's not an option because it's done via Chrubuntu ;)06:40
nusrtaken2: ok. just see how it goes06:40
=== root is now known as Guest12350
PitchFcan i ask to by chromebook with linux alredy instaled?06:42
taken2the other question I have is about GPU acceleration of video06:42
taken2on my Mac, h264 uses very little CPU06:43
ObrienDavebecause the GPU handles it06:43
taken2on this chrome box (with a more powerful CPU and much more powerful GPU) even 720p stutters a little06:43
taken2In the next version of Ubuntu, will video be handled by the GPU instead of the CPU?06:44
sacarlsontaken2: it might improve with proprietary video drivers if available06:44
cfhowletttaken2, depends on your system hardware.06:45
taken2This is Intel Haswell integrated graphics06:45
taken2it's an Asus Chromebox06:45
cfhowletttaken2, did you install the intel graphics drivers?06:45
taken2cfhowlett: I did not do any special installs06:45
sacarlsoncfhowlett: are there proprietary for intel?06:45
GirlDevHey on releases like TV shows does "x264" always mean better quality than "XVID"? I notice the XVID is always bigger in size, is it better quality tho? This is for HDTV06:45
GirlDevHey on releases like TV shows does "x264" always mean better quality than "XVID"? I notice the XVID is always bigger in size, is it better quality tho? This is for HDTV06:45
GirlDev*Sry double post06:45
taken2GirlDev: All things equal, H264 is better06:46
cfhowletttaken2, sacarlson https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads06:46
PitchFx264 better quallity with less bitrate06:46
cfhowletttaken2, sacarlson more precisely:   https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads06:47
taken2GirlDev: H264 is more CPU intensive, because it's more efficient06:47
PitchFi dont know why people still use xvid?!06:47
taken2PitchF: I just answered your question06:47
sacarlsoncfhowlett: seem not for me from that link Xeon E3-1200 is what I have06:47
PitchFyou really need some outadted cpu if you cant play H26406:48
cfhowlettsacarlson, I missed the link, but intel recently releases a native linux GPU driver that noticeably improves performance06:48
GirlDevAh cool, this is for scene releases, I notice they still rls XVID. Bigger in filesize, doesnt mean better quality though right06:48
PitchFi started watching h264 and never gone back to xvid06:49
PitchFthe gradients are always blurie on xvid06:49
PitchFyou get like dvd quality on 700 megas per movie06:51
taken2I think they should reduce the footrpint of Gnome System Monitor. It's taking up 12-30% of my CPU, heh06:53
GirlDevShould x264 look more blocky than XVID? I thought it'd be the other way around, since xvid is older I'm using MPC + CCCP06:54
nusrtaken2: you have good suggestions and seem to know a lot about video..how about submitting requests to the ubuntu team06:54
sacarlsoncfhowlett: I'm looking at my modinfo i915 to determine if I already have the new stuf.  as it seem it's opensource I think I have it already06:55
PitchFtaken2:gnome sucks06:58
JesusNazarethPitchF: Unity is better06:58
JesusNazarethbut then again I love debian06:58
PitchFi never used unity06:58
PitchFlxde xface are quite nice06:59
PitchFmate seems good too06:59
PitchFnever used mate06:59
sacarlsonPitchF: I"m a gnome dude.  my old software won't even run on unity06:59
taken2GirlDev: Yes, h264 should be better06:59
PitchFmight try that06:59
JesusNazarethPitchF: If you theme unity is it is good looking desktip06:59
PitchFmate is gnome done right06:59
JesusNazarethPitchF: mate is gnome 207:00
FlannelPitchF: Can you please cut back on the commentary? This isn't a discussion channel. Thanks.07:00
PitchFno its better07:00
* ObrienDave munches popcorn07:00
sacarlsonGirlDev: it's much dependent on the bitrate settings used in the video conversion process that have much to do with the video quality of the outcome.  I'm not sure witch codec is best07:03
nusrPitchF: yes another human who thinks so..i think gnome sucks too07:03
nusrPitchF: and despite consensus..unity is actually good....this is coming from a windows user who dumped windows just from 14.0407:04
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!07:04
taken2cfhowlett: I installed the Intel linux package but don't see a difference in CPU utilization. Do I need to reboot my system for it to take effect?07:05
sacarlsonGirlDev: to do a real compare you would have to judge two videos with same bitrate and same pixel scale and different codec07:05
cfhowletttaken2, possibly.  I think there's a command to restart gpu only services, but I don't know it.07:05
taken2cfhowlett: okay, I'll try rebooting07:06
PitchFpopcorn looks legit07:06
GirlDevAh cool, this is for scene releases, like the popular groups, so I think x264 is better than XVID. For example usually LOL rls x264, FUM rls XVID, XVID filesize is bigger07:06
sacarlsonGirlDev: ok and the pixel scale screen size X Y?  they also the same07:07
PitchFneed popcorn on my smarttv07:07
ObrienDaveFlannel, much more patient than I ;P07:08
cfhowlettObrienDave, same same ^^^^^^07:09
somsip!ignore | ObrienDave07:10
ubottuObrienDave: If you really don't wish to see the messages from a particular person on IRC, you can use /ignore nickname07:10
* ObrienDave is very familiar with the /ignore command ;P07:11
ObrienDavethanks :)07:11
somsipObrienDave: much better to use it and not keep doing the 'munches popcorn' to feed the troll then? :)07:11
ObrienDavenaw, i was waiting for them to get kicked LOL07:12
ObrienDaveanyway, OT ;P07:12
FlannelObrienDave: You were also adding to the disruption (and were almost kicked)07:12
somsipObrienDave: and if waiting takes a while, I find ignore is the best option. Agreed on the OT.07:12
taken2cfhowlett: Rebooting didn't change anything. I tried h264 and Flash, both used similar CPU amounts, with Flash using slightly less, and h264 playing a bit more smoothly. I was hoping this machine would make good use of the GPU, but that doesn't seem to be the case for h264 video in Firefox, at least.07:16
cfhowletttaken2, integrated graphics are not always the best option.  sorry it didn't give you your fix.07:17
taken2cfhowlett: Of course, I was just saying that the GPU is much more powerful than my Mac, so I thought it would do better07:18
taken2cfhowlett: My guess is these things need to be integrated first (Firefox, h264, Intel GPU acceleration)07:18
taken2cfhowlett: I'm not a computer scientist, but my guess is these components aren't taking full advantage of each other07:19
cfhowletttaken2, well that WOULD be nice, wouldn't it?  perhaps mozilla will get with the program here ....07:19
taken2cfhowlett: I was just trying to determine if this machine will meet my usage expectations or if I should return07:20
taken2It looks like returning it is the correct choice :(07:20
taken2Maybe Broadwell machines and the next version of Ubuntu these things will be ironed out07:21
cfhowletttaken2, well if THAT'S the choice, get yourself a linux friendly device!   dell xps 13, zareason, system 76 all are 100% OOTB linux ready07:21
SvetlanaThere also is h-node.org where you can search for free hardware.07:21
taken2The Asus Chromebox is tiny, silent, and cost $160. On paper I thought it would be great.07:22
cfhowletttaken2, dat memory: 16 gb?  dealbreaker for me07:22
taken2cfhowlett: Sure, but you can put a different SSD in it, add more memory, etc07:23
taken2My linux partition is only 9GB07:23
taken2plenty for what I wanted to do with it07:23
taken2and it was fun to take a device that is not supposed to run anything but Chrome and put Ubuntu on it07:24
taken2I like to tinker a bit here and there07:24
taken2The process was pretty easy, though07:24
ki7mtThat's my problem too, spend too much time playing with getting x,y,z to install and run, rather than running it.07:25
GirlDevsacarlson : GirlDev: ok and the pixel scale screen size X Y?  they also the same  <-- Sry for delay, was showering lol :P , what do u mean pixel scale07:25
taken2cfhowlett: Anyway, thanks for your tips and suggestions. We got h264 running in Firefox, so that was a major achievement. Thanks again. :)07:25
cfhowletttaken2, best of luck to you.07:26
sacarlsonGirlDev: a video can be scaled to any picture size  up and down07:26
sacarlsonleft and right07:26
GirlDevOh u mean like, same size window on monitor? Or resolution, I think it's both SD07:27
sacarlsonGirlDev: it take much less bandwidth  to compress a 640 x 480 video as with hdtv  1080 X ????07:27
sacarlsonGirlDev: they will again scale 640 X 480 image to fit your screen size and posibly make it grainy07:28
GirlDevOh I see, not sure of X Y, they're released by LOL & FUM & other popular scene groups tho, like usually LOL rls x264, FUM rls XVID, XVID filesize is bigger07:29
sacarlsonGirlDev: ffmpeg can display the specs of a video file that you can use to compare that includes bitrate  X Y scale ....07:31
GirlDevAh cool haha, Bitrate doesnt fully determine quality, its codec dependent too right07:33

somsip!testing | notore (see smartmontools)07:52
ubottunotore (see smartmontools): To test your hardware, you can use the packages memtest86+ (for memory, can be started from the !GRUB boot menu), smartmontools (for hard drives), cpuburn (which MIGHT damage your processor if cooling is not adequate!). Additionally, lm-sensors can be useful to monitor temperatures and fan speeds - See also !benchmark07:52

somsipnotore: you run the tool on the ones you want to check. Make sure you read the instructions for the tools so you know what you are doing and the effects of what you are doing08:02
notoreidk why there are so many drives :D but as i understood i need to run this command sudo smartctl -t long path08:03

notoreor maybe dev/sda is same as dev/sda1 dev/sda2 dev/sda3 and so on?08:07
ObrienDavenotore, sda is the physical drive. sda1, sda2, etc, are partitions within that drive08:08
somsipnotore: you are testing drives not partitions, so you will use /dev/sda /dev/sdb and not /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb2 etc08:08

v_if web browser mime type is text/html what is mime-type for playonlinux?09:21
v_application/PlayOnLinux ?09:22
sacarlsonv_: maybe it's an exicutable?09:23
v_playonlinux ye it is executable so that is not a mime-type09:23
sacarlsonoh sorry playonlinux is mime for what09:23
v_I need to set a mime-type for it09:23
v_to open playonlinux:// links09:23
dandresacarlson: that's not what I am looking for, thanks09:25
v_how can I browser different mime types09:25
dandreSvetlana: verve is for xfce. Is it compatible with gnome?09:26
linociscoI have problem installing Canon LBP 3050 on ubuntu 14.04 64 bit OS09:26
linociscoany relevent guide?09:26
v_so complicated to make playonlinux:// links work09:26
v_and so difficult to find a list of different mime-types09:27
=== xubuntu is now known as Guest17641
v_okay. I found a list, but there is no generic for playonlinux. So I guess I need to create a mime-type for it somehow09:28
sacarlsonv_: as far as I can tell it's a tool to allow you to create gui type envirnments from with bash type scrypts09:28
Marc-Juliani am getting busy right now. :/09:28
v_playonlinux created a playonlinux.desktop on /usr/share/applications which I could point to with gvfs-mime --set mimetype?/mimetype? playonlinux.desktop but I don't know what to set there09:31
waressearcher2I run command: "bzip2 -c -9 sda5.tar > sda5_1.tar.bz2" and "top" shows that process "bzip2" uses about 30% of cpu, why ? its not 100% ?09:31
sacarlsonv_: I would think it's just a bash script so you can just run it09:32
sacarlsonwaressearcher2: maybe it's not a multi threaded app and you have more that one cpu09:34
v_sacarlson: how?09:35
sacarlsonv_:  how do you run an app?  type it in a console09:35
waressearcher2sacarlson: I have Core2Duo E216009:35
v_if I type that on terminal it won't work09:36
geirhawaressearcher2: probably IO bound. E.g. the disk can't feed it data fast enough and/or can't write the data fast enough09:36
sacarlsonv_: as it shows in the program it's a bash script #!/bin/bash09:37
sacarlsonv_: you may have to set the perms to allow it to run chmod +x  scriptname09:38
waressearcher2geirha: for example "cat /dev/zero > /dev/null" shows stable 99% CPU load ?  but it uses one core09:38
geirhawaressearcher2: Well, that one isn't reading from or writing to a disk09:39
waressearcher2geirha: iostat shows that reading from drive is just under 1Mb/s, so there is no "slow drive" issues09:40
geirhawaressearcher2: you're missing the point. The bzip process has to read some chunks from the file (on disk), process them, and get rid of the processed chunks (by writing them back to disk) before it can start taking on new chunks09:42
v_sacarlson: I saved that source code to a hearthstone-install.sh, saved it, and did chmod +x hearthstone-install.sh, then typed ./hearthstone-install.sh and nothing happened, in 0.1sec it executed09:42
geirhawaressearcher2: And the CPU is much faster than your disk09:43
sacarlsonv_: oh I may  have been wrong it also looks to be something like wine to run windows apps in linux09:43
sacarlsonv_: did you install playonlinux?09:44
sacarlsonv_: oh playonlinux if frontend for wine09:44
v_I need playonlinux to run that script I guess09:45
Avichello. i have been thinking. I need a desktop enviornment in the server where i have ubuntu. is there a way to install remmina in my windows 7?09:45
sacarlsonv_: so I would assume you also have wine installed09:45
v_yea playonlinux installed wine also09:45
=== Guest40399 is now known as jack
v_in playonlinux there is an option to run a local script09:46

v_I'm not sure if I could run it there09:46
v_yea. It works from running it there. Installing now09:47
v_thanks sacarlson09:47
sacarlsonv_: that looked to be the setup script for Hearthstone-Setup-enUS.exe  do you also have that?09:47
v_I have it somewhere actually, but not probably in the right place09:48
sacarlsonv_: ya that may be your problem09:48
v_can't the script download it09:48
v_or does it assume I have it on same dir as script09:48
v_I put it there now then09:48
ertyuihello there09:49
v_except I cant find it09:49
notoreanyone can help with smart test results http://paste.ubuntu.com/8730834/ read failure isn't good right?09:49
ertyuii would like to know how it calls the package using snmpwalk ?09:49
sacarlsonv_: sure if I wrote the script I could but I'm not sure they did as that would be iligal09:49
ertyuiubuntu says with apt : E: Unable to locate package snmpwalk09:50
sacarlsonertyui: try sudo apt-get update09:50
ertyuiapt-get update to install snmpwalk ?09:51
sacarlsonertyui: nope don't see that in the repository  just snmp09:51
ertyuieven after an update it gives same error09:52
ertyuimy question is simply how it calls the package snmpwalk ?09:52
ertyuion apt09:52
=== simonl is now known as Guest4746
sacarlsonertyui: sudo apt-get install snmp09:53
v_the script downloaded the hearthstone setup ok09:53
sacarlsonertyui: the question is how do I install the command snmpwalk,  what package do I need to install that contains it09:54
ertyuiyes that's coorect09:54
sacarlsonertyui: or do you want instructions on how to use the command?09:55
Avici want to use a vitrual machine in windows to be able to install xubuntu to install remmina to access the server using xubuntu also, is this possible?09:59
sacarlsonAvic: yes asuming your computer has the resources needed to do so with mem and disk space10:00
Avichow much disc space is needed?10:01
sacarlsonAvic: about 10gb10:01
Avicyes i have the space10:01
sacarlsonAvic: and about 2gb mem min10:02
Avici have 16 gb in windows10:02
nopfAvic: according to my experience running virtual{desktop,machine} solutions within each other you might get real problems using super (aka windows), maybe even ctrl-alt combinations and such. sometimes works, sometimes it's clumsy at best10:02
sacarlsonAvic: then I guess your good to go,  I don't know what that app remmina is so ???10:03
nopfsacarlson: it's like vncviewer a bit10:03
Avicremmina is a server like vnc but for linux to access other desktop10:04
Avicits much better than vnc10:04
sacarlsonAvic: teamviewer is cool10:04
Avicso what vm should i install?10:05
sacarlsonAvic: I"ve never run inside windows but virtualbox supports it10:05
=== max is now known as Guest70132
Ben64Avic: remmina is just a vnc/rdp client, nothing special. if thats the only thing you want to run, you can find a client on windows to do that, kind of silly to have a whole VM just for that10:07
dymHey! I have somewhat of a task here :) I have a host machine, hosting a vm that's networked via bridged networking and has a private ip ( and runs a webserver on port 80. The host machine has a public ip address via a VPN connection. What im trying is to establish port forwarding from the hosts' public ip address port 5000 to the vm's webserver. I tried using a shorewall DNAT rule saying and the redirect seems to occour, but never reaches it's des10:07
dymSorry - im using kvm/qemu + libvirt10:08
Ben64dym: your message ends with "but never reaches it's de"10:08
nopfAvic: i'd use virtualbox, because qemu doesn't seem to have an official windows binary. vmware is a comfy option if you love closed source10:09
dymrest: stination. http://pastebin.com/xnyXFcVK10:09
dymSorry Ben6410:09
Ben64dym: no problem, just figured you'd want to know if your message got cut off10:09
sacarlsondym wow that will take me a bit to absorb10:10
Avicso, virtualbox can be the way to go.10:10
dymsacarlson: how so? :)10:10
Ben64Avic: seriously, why are you wanting to run a VM for remmina10:10
jpdsdym: Is this actually going to be a publicly used web service?10:10
dymjpds: negative.10:10
dymjpds: well, for my purposes - yes.10:10
jpdsdym: So it's a test VM?10:10
dymjpds: No. It's a productive VM in my Home Network10:11
jpdsdym: Well, why don't you just install a VPN server on the host and have the VPN give you a route to your client?10:11
dymjpds: im utilizing a public ip from an online VPN server10:12
dymto make the VM host accessable10:12
Avici want to access the server desktop enviornment the best way possible, i tried vnc, rdp, freenx (this one i had all day yesterday and couldn't get it right) Ben6410:12
dymjpds: I have the feeling im not that far off with this configuration.10:12
Ben64Avic: so use vnc! for days you've been doing things the hardest ways possible10:12
rishabhwhenever i start my ubuntu operating system...pop up window comes up displaying system program problem detected10:12
nopfAvic: you should seriously consider migrating from windows fully. your heart seems to be already somewhere else :)10:13
rishabhplease tell how to resolve this problem10:13
jpdsdym: Right, what I do is I don't port forward, I just open my private subnet to my VPN clients.10:13

sacarlsondym: for one thing I guess you can just configure apache to listen and work from port 5000,  not that I"ve ever tried it10:19
dymsacarlson: but what use would that be?10:20
sacarlsondym: well I still don't fully have a map of the full idea how you want the one to basicly proxy to your vpn home10:20
sacarlsondym: well the use would be you wouldn't have to setup dnat snat  as I guess that's the part your also missing is snat  or masqarade10:22

andreas_Hello! I have problems getting my dualboot to work, First I installed Ubuntu and Win8 on the same HDD; only win8 booted. then I installed Win8 and Ubuntu on two different SSDs, booted into UEFI ubuntu, only ubuntu booted. went into boot repair disk and ran it, did not repair. Now I booted and installed ubuntu without EFI; still just ubuntu booting12:10
White_Catsacarlson entirely possible12:10
andreas_how can I get a GRUB screen when I boot up that shows me win8 as well?12:10
White_Catbut that doesnt make sense either :/12:10
andreas_any sugestions?12:13
BluesKajandreas_, try sudo os-prober, then sudo update-grub12:13
andreas_ok thanks12:13
darcuzthere are some italian?12:14
chuck_bmis there any schedule for 14.04 updates, like 14.04.2, with an updated kernel and stuff?12:14

mgedmindarcuz, in #ubuntu-it maybe?12:14
chuck_bmio parlo un po di italiano12:15

chuck_bmbut yeah, it's better #ubuntu-it12:15
White_Catsacarlson when I use hyper-v to connect to a virtual windows machine network works fine with same configuration12:15
White_Catits quite puzzling12:15
mgedminWhite_Cat, check /var/log/syslog for any messages about DHCP?12:16
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: nat or bridged12:16
White_Catits not bridged12:16
White_Catits a virtual switch12:16
White_Catswitch under a router so a nat I suppose12:17
logos_my usb have 2gb but in gparted watch 15 gb what is the problem?12:17
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: so it's bridged then.  oh but I thought you said you setup like 4 nics12:17
White_Catit has 3 network cards12:17
mgedminWhite_Cat, does /etc/network/interfaces enable all three?12:18
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: all bridged to the same network?12:18
White_Catthey connect to three different networks12:18
White_Cateach with their own internet12:18
sacarlsonmgedmin: no it only activates her eth012:18
White_Catits a bizzire system12:18
White_Catinterfaces makes no mention of other two devices12:18
White_CatI can add them if you like12:18
BluesKajandreas_ I'm not too well versed on UEFI booting due to the fact that I wiped the drive clean and reinstalled windows and ubuntu in legacy mode.12:19
mgedminwhoops, you pasted it, sorry, I missed that12:19
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: pointless to add the others as even one fails.  in virtualbox we can enable or simulate it unpluged.  be sure you have all those set correct?12:20
mgedminWhite_Cat, if you want to use those interfaces the yes, you'll have to add them to /etc/network/interfaces (OR install network-manager which autoconfigures everything, but is more commonly used on desktops, not servers)12:20
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: you can try manualy set the ip of eth0 or others and see if you can ping it from windows12:20
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: or try sudo ifdown ; ifup to get it to retry dchp12:22
sacarlsonWhite_Cat: sudo ifdown eth0;  sudo ifup eth012:22
mgedminright, forgot to mention that: run sudo ifup -a after enabling the other cards in /etc/network/interfaces12:23

cfhowlettAviv_, and it's "optional"12:46
Quatrokingsacarlson, Yeah but I'd rather not have people use my laptop at all12:46
Ben64Aviv_: you keep doing everything the hardest possible way. stop making it so difficult for yourself. use vnc, use a vnc client on windows, use vnc server on server. or even better, don't use GUI on a server!!!12:46

Aviv_ok, so...  ssh?12:48
thoonaisomeone using gpg? and --symmetric? and --passphrase?12:48
Ben64Aviv_: yes, ssh is normally how one would interact with a server12:48
thoonaiAviv_: yeah. its nice, I'm even doing irc on ssh right now12:49

mgedminanybody here uses unity?  I like gnome-shell myself13:29

k1l_mgedmin: did you ever start a unity wihtout proper 3d support? it looks exactly like that13:30

mgedminnusr, add -name '*.txt' to the end of the command14:11
robcsimgedmin: yes, I know. I'm trying to setup a monitor on a wall in an office and have stuff appear on it, but without having window decorations visible14:11
alreadytriedgooghey i need help installing chrome, i went to google.com/chrome  selected the right package for install, first tried with the open with software center option, didnt work, then i dl'd it and tried again and i keep getting auth errors. software center doesnt want me to have chrome for some reason?14:12
somsiprobcsi: tiling WMs do allow removal of window decoration. Do a search for some screenshots of dwm, xmonad, awesomewm, etc14:12
mgedminrobcsi, yeah, I'm pretty sure xmonad can do that... but I can't help you with it14:12
robcsisomsip: mgedmin: yes, I'm aware of them. there's also i314:13
alreadytriedgoogand i wanna get the version right from google not a ppa cause on my other machine i did a cli install for chrome and it doesnt work with netflix14:13
nusrmgedmin: it works...but it's coming out like a sputtering tap and not a full gusher like -type f14:14
nusrmgedmin: thank you14:14
mgedminnusr, yeah, disks are slow14:14
somsiprobcsi: a few others too - wiki has a full list. But if it's for a display, probably go with the one that seems easiest14:14
alreadytriedgoogbut version 37 of chrome works with netflix without having to use wine or anything else, so how do i get chrome installed without errors please?14:14
robcsisomsip: which wiki are you referring to?14:14
somsiprobcsi: wikipedia - habit to abbreviate to wiki14:15
robcsisomsip: oh, ok :)14:15
mgedminalreadytriedgoog, last time I tried the .deb downloaded from google, it worked for me (opened with software center, clicled install, entered my password)14:15
somsiprobcsi: eg: google://wiki tiling window managers14:15
mgedminalreadytriedgoog, what sort of auth errors are you getting?14:16
darthpuppyI'm installing trove on an ubuntu 14.04 and I am getting python-trove : Depends: python-sqlalchemy (< 0.9) but 0.9.7-1~cloud0 is to be installed when I try to install it.14:16
alreadytriedgoogmgedmin, right but for some reason the password prompt isn't showing up in software center and it wont let chrome install14:16
robcsisomsip: I've been through many google results, but it's not a tiling window manager I'm looking for exactly14:16
Aviccan i install ubuntu 14.04 -> lxde + vnc ? Its this possiible?14:16
alreadytriedgoogyeah my password prompt wont show. i have a feeling that's why the installer gets auth errors14:17
mgedminalreadytriedgoog, authorization is cached for some time (15 minutes?), it won't just keep asking again if you authenticate right once14:17
somsiprobcsi: ok - I just saw the bit about awesomewm and xmonad and jumped in. I'll back away gracefully :)14:17
darthpuppyThis in on an openstack controller node if that matters14:17
mgedminalreadytriedgoog, what's the error that software center gives you?  copy/paste or screenshot to imgur.com would be best14:17
alreadytriedgoogmgedmin, yeah but i just woke up, started my machine and went for chrome, i havent put my password in at all yet today14:17
robcsisomsip: your help is much appreciated, as is everybody else's. thanks for the suggestions14:17
alreadytriedgoogmgedmin,  ok 1 sec14:17

raviepic3help needed - i mistakenly uninstalled python 2.7 in the aim of installing python 314:24
raviepic3now i have the desktop manager removed !14:24
mgedminalreadytriedgoog, http://askubuntu.com/questions/464077/authentication-error-when-trying-to-install-or-uninstall-using-ubuntu-software-c has some troubleshooting suggestions14:24
raviepic3finding it very difficult to proceed14:25
raviepic3i googled and people told me to download the python manually and install and then install the gnome-desktop14:25
imbezolraviepic3: does apt-get not work anymore?14:25
alreadytriedgoogalthough linux has never worked right on my machine, it doesnt boot right, the grub never shows on the first boot, i have to reboot and hold shift, then i have to edit the start up option and add nomodeset. its just such a headache and all i want is my netflix14:25
raviepic3i installed the python 2.7 manually and then when i try to install gnome-desktop all i get is 404 for the urls14:25
edwinHanyone has any success installing 14.04 server on a hp proliant ml110? installer does recognize raid configuration but after enabling/activating it no hard drives can be selected..14:26
mgedminraviepic3, run sudo apt-get update14:26
FilthyMacNastyauso apt-get install gnome-session-flashback14:26
raviepic3imbezol: thanks for replying - i am not sure whether the error produced by apt-get install gnome-desktop or apt-get update --fix missing is due tooutdated source file or this python uninstall !14:27
mgedminraviepic3, this sometimes happens when new updates are pushed, the mirrors delete old ones, and your apt tries to fetch the deleted versions because it doesn't realize newer ones are available14:27
raviepic3mgedmin: ^14:27
mgedminraviepic3, lack of python shouldn't break apt14:27
alreadytriedgoogmgedmin, they suggest something isnt installed, however i doubt i'd be able to install steam and games if i was missing software, seeing as how this pc worked before this morning either linux is really unstable and its losing my files or my 6 month old hard drive is failing and thats really unlikely.14:27
raviepic3mgedmin: have run apt-get update and apt-get update --fix-missing but all i get was 404 for several urls14:27
mgedminraviepic3, also you probably want to apt-get install ubuntu-desktop (if you use Ubuntu and not one of the other flavours)14:27
firebbhow do i upgrade my 14.04 to 14.10?14:28
izolateHey, does ~/.ssh/authorized_keys need to be a file, or can it be a folder consisting of keys inside it (for the sake of organization)?14:28
ElGatoSaezanyone can help me please14:28
mgedminraviepic3, 404 errors from 'apt-get update'?  these mean some of the repositories you've enabled are bad (or don't have packages for your ubuntu version); pastebin the errors if you wish14:28
ElGatoSaezthe backlight of my laptop has gone14:28
raviepic3FilthyMacNasty: have tried gnome-desktop and got all 404 for urls will try the flashback now14:28
ElGatoSaezi cant do sudo setpci14:28
ElGatoSaezit doesnt work14:28
mgedminraviepic3, 404 errors from 'apt-get update' are mostly harmless, do try apt-get install14:28
mgedminraviepic3, apt-get install --fix-missing doesn't do what you think it does; you need to apt-get install ubuntu-desktop14:29
raviepic3mgedmin: when i remove python, i think my xterminal is also gone !.. how do i access the terminal to copy and paste the errors ?14:29
raviepic3right now i am running the command on CLI mode with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then switching back to GUI with F714:29
imbezolraviepic3: sudo apt-get install pastebinit14:30
nusrmgedmin: now that i have found the file on the partition i want to move it to my linux partition. i tried this but the error message says no file.      cp /media/qq/3AA449A6A449658B/Documents and Settings/user/My Documents/data/s/LE/New Folder/<nameofthefile.txt /home/qq/Documents/<nameofthefile.txt>  the error message says <nameofthefile> is not a valid directory...the file name was in a microsoft partition and has spaces in the name.14:30
ElGatoSaezanyone can help me please14:30
raviepic3imbezol: when i try to do that - i get 404 for all lines saying failed to fetch !14:31
raviepic3is that a cause of broekn source list ? if yes can i rebuild it ?14:31
alreadytriedgoogmgedmin, further testing reveals its not a chrome issue, i cant install anything with the software center. is there a way i an remove the pesky need for auth to begin with? It's annoying just like windows user action center notifing you of every click you make!14:32
ElGatoSaezhelp me please14:32
imbezolraviepic3: but your networking is working fine otherwise?14:33
raviepic3imbezol: when the login screen appears - there it seems that the top bar is available.. so i connect my datacard using that in the login screen and then select the user to login..14:34
ses1984can someone point me in the right direction for this: what do i need to do so that when a user logs in, they get NFS shares mounted with their credentials?14:34
raviepic3because that top bar is not available after loging inside the gnome desktop imbezol14:35
mgedminraviepic3, what's your ubuntu version?14:35
raviepic3mgedmin: 12.0414:35

ElGatoSaezi will call a technical support14:38
raviepic3mgedmin: no way to recover from this ?14:38
ElGatoSaezno one helps here14:38
mgedminraviepic3, there's a special upgrade procedure where you edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and point to the old-releases mirror14:39
imbezolmgedmin: i'm thinking his best bet is to download 14.04 and do a release upgrade from command line using the disk14:39
alreadytriedgoogElGatoSaez, Linux has a tech support help line?? whats the number?14:39
imbezolmgedmin: probably fixable at the current level.. but would require some hacking14:39
mgedminraviepic3, http://askubuntu.com/a/91821/13614:39

raviepic3mgedmin: the shortcut aint working :(14:45

pdo_fn14How to enabling journalctl in Utopic?.14:45
mgedminraviepic3, open gedit or something, paste the commands you want to run from the web page, save as myscript.sh, then run 'sh myscript.sh' in the terminal14:46
mgedminraviepic3, otherwise it's hard to copy and paste between a browser and the linux console14:46
nusrmgedmin: not if you run out of memory..when that happens even alt control f1 does not work for me...is there anything that can be done when that happens? for example..if a vm is running and i open just that last browser tab..my system freezes14:46

nightwolf_I use ubuntu to but I trys other os to15:14
minamohsenanyone with experience on cron jobs through files not commands ?15:14
yorwosbut its not what i asked15:14
yorwosi asked whats the difference between "linux kernel image for version 3.13.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP"  + "lowlatency linux kernel image"15:15
k1l_somebody: the alternate installer was dropped15:16
nightwolf_its just bigger then a 32 bit15:16
k1l_yorwos: low-latency is used for special cases. like soundproducing and such15:17
somebodyk1l_: I know, but I need it to get a FDE using the latest system version on which it's not broken, which appears to be 12.04.5, where it is available only from the alt. installer.15:17
yorwosyes whats that SMP thingy ?15:17
yorwosshouold i only install the low latency ?15:17
k1l_yorwos: what?15:17
somebodyAny ideas to get around the issue? I am simply trying to get a FDE installation that wouldn't crash on me.15:17
k1l_yorwos: just install the regular kernel image. it will sort it out for you15:18
yorwosis it trying to install 2 kernels on my system ?15:18
yorwosim using this for sound production15:18
k1l_yorwos: not if you dont select 215:18
k1l_yorwos: ......15:18
k1l_yorwos: so you will need the lowlatency one.15:18
nightwolf_the 32bit will work on a 64bit15:19
yorwoshow can i ignore the other kernel on updates ?15:19
k1l_nightwolf_: dont irritate the user here. there is no reason to not run 64bit kernels on 64bit hardware for the regular user15:20
k1l_yorwos: install the low-latency meta package. it will install the new ones if there are low latency ones15:20

nightwolf_try ubuntu it good for desktop and laptops beeez15:36
raviepic3k1l_: i am on datacard - how much size compared to the old one do you think the new version will cost me ? 700 MB ?15:36
beeeznightwolf_: But the keys on the loudspeaker had worked already - so it should be possible with Lubuntu15:37
k1l_raviepic3: you mean the update to a new release?15:37
nightwolf_maybe you need a update15:38
k1l_raviepic3: you have no choice of staying on the old release. that is not getting any security or bug updates. so you are vulnerable to shellstorm and stuff.15:38

Axemanjust installed ubuntu server - do i need to install SSH using apt-get? or should it alrady be there?16:01
JakeHey there, I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and when I type the poundsign over ssh onto my weechat install, instead of a pound sign showing, two question marks are shown16:01
Fuchsmartin1969: either use scrot on a command line with a delay, or ksnapshot with a delay16:01
Fuchsmartin1969: run that, open the menu, wait. Done.16:01
JakeAxeman: I believe ssh is installed by default16:01
martin1969fuchs, thanks. i'll try that now.16:02
Axemanthat's what i thought Jake but this tells me to isntall it16:02
JakeAxeman: see if you can ssh on port 22 of the machine, if not you need to install it :)16:02
AxemanJake, that's sorta what i tried. got error, googled. said install. really? install? let me ask IRC, for sho ;-)16:04
martin1969fuchs, now that i installed scrot, how do i open it in the terminal?16:04
YamDX-7scrot -d 10 (10 seconds delay)16:05

RarrikinsHow do I get do-release-upgrade to upgrade to 14.10 from 14.04? It just says "No new release found".16:20
martin1969just out of curiosity. is there an emulation software like Parellel for Mac, that enables ubuntu user to install and run windows app without having to install the entire OS?16:21
somsip!wine | martin196916:21
ubottumartin1969: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu16:21
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade16:21
Rarrikinsmartin1969: There's also VirtualBox if you have an install CD with the key.16:21
YamDX-7Rarrikins sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade16:22
YamDX-7should do the trick16:22
martin1969Rarrikins, i take it it's a paid application. how does it fare compare to other emulation software?16:22
somsipmartin1969: no - free16:23
YamDX-7hello vishnu16:23
Rarrikinsmartin1969: I haven't really used other software, so I'm unsure, but it is free (though the Windows you'd install into it wouldn't be).16:23
martin1969ahh, so you do have to install the OS.16:23
trismRarrikins: you probably need to enable normal release upgrades, lts defaults to only upgrade to the next lts, you can switch it in software-properties-gtk or /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades16:24
somsipmartin1969: wine is a compatibility layer. VirtualBox runs a virtual PC you can run under the ubuntu host, and put any OS on the virtual PC16:24
martin1969there is a software on the mac side that you can run windows app without having to install the entire os.16:24

Axemansudo wget -O - https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo-public.gpg|apt-key add -16:28
Axemangives me an error16:28
SergioADhow can I remove the unity's replacement menus to gmenu?16:28
AxemanCannot write to â-â (Success).16:28
Axemanwhat am i doing wrong?16:28
Axemani literally copy/pasted that from openvpn.net's guide16:28
fribi have this issue where vlc hangs for around 15 seconds whenever i try to close it or a video ends.  what can I do?16:29
csst0111EriC^^: avoid writing the whole path to open the file I want16:29
SergioADin other words how can I remove the multiple classic style menus from Ubuntu and only use the one item menubar of Gnome apps (gmenu)16:29
PiciAxeman: sudo will not pass IO redirection operators.  do:  wget -O - https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo-public.gpg | sudo apt-key add -16:29
glcheethamAxeman, I don't think that's the right command, maybe you missed some when you ctrl c ctrl v'd16:29
SergioADI want install Ubuntu gnome but I fear it because the Gnome apps with not gmenu enabled shows a classic styled menubar over the CSDs16:30
Axemanthanks pici, will try16:30
Axemanglcheetham, that's what i figured the - hanging out at the end.16:30
Axemanbut that's what they have ou tthere.16:30
SergioADsomebody know what I can do?16:30
PiciAxeman: The - at the end means to take the info from stdin16:31
glcheethamAxeman, what are you actually trying to do?16:31
Axemanwell Pici that worked16:31
Axemanglcheetham, you think i have a clue? lol16:31

dhanasekaranHi Guys I recently updated my ubuntu 14.04 to 14.1016:33
glcheethamAxeman, You should probably just get the package from the ubuntu repos16:33

glcheethamAxeman, Also, follow a tutorial from the ubuntu wiki16:34
Guest56798Axeman: if you install squid you can make an SSH tunnel which will then use the proxy and give you web access if you set the browser proxy to the tunnel port on the client16:34

alreadytriedfor babies? learning ubuntu is the hardest thing i ever had to do!16:50
rivarunreisio: i could do that. except ubuntu systematically does this. is there some political reason that prevents them from shipping the same binaries that other distributions ship? i had same trouble with `realpath`16:51

acerspyroCan I re-ask my question?16:51
alreadytriedyeah im from windows :(   do people think people from windows are noobs? I'm new to linux and im really excited :D16:52
reisiorivarun: you probably have coreutils' realpath, with a different name16:52
rivarunreisio: i just expect standard-ish flags on standard utilities to be there. i'm not complaining, ubuntu can do what it pleases. i'm asking why it's like that16:52
reisiorivarun: mmm, I don't know the history16:52
Guest56798alreadytried: if you are new to Linux then thats all it is. I don't use 'noob', everyone is learning every day16:52
k1lalreadytried: the user who got kicked was an idiot trying to make trouble (called trolls). just dont mind them.16:52
mcphailrivarun: many of these decisions are made upstream in Debian. You could have a search on the mailing lists or contact the maintainer to see if there have been political objections to particular sources. Most of the time there is a good reason16:53
reisiorivarun: my guess would be that debian's which predates the one Gentoo uses at this time, whether it's inferior or not16:53
acerspyrok1l: Sometimes what you16:53
alreadytriedahh ok. yeah i never tried linux before ubuntu. but i deleted my windows install by accident so ubuntu is all i have now :D16:53

reisiorivarun: what you should really learn is that all these fancy parameters are unreliable16:54
reisiowhich does one job, and does it well16:54
alreadytriedhaha yeah16:54
reisioBSD guys shudder at, for example, all the parameters that 'tar' has16:54
reisioand how it can utilize gzip and xz16:54
reisioinstead of just using another pipe16:54
reisiothat is true reliability16:54
reisioas tar params actually have changed lots over time16:54

Adephiti can't do any other way Guest56798. whay i need to change here?: http://pastebin.com/QF61inzy  thanks16:55
rivarunreisio: so you've tested that version of which and it's unreliable?16:55
acerspyro_The network architecture here is terrible, I'm sure they run it on Pentium 4 machines running XP16:55
reisiorivarun: no I'm saying params in general are16:55
reisiorivarun: Unix apps are meant to do one thing, not a million16:56
acerspyro_I'll ask for the third time16:56
rivarunreisio: it's still one thing. just with more customization16:56
reisiowhat you should rely on, and no doubt can rely on _any_ implementation of 'which' to do is print a path16:56
reisioand that is all, that was all there ever was to rely on16:56
reisiorivarun: anyways, if you want to use Gentoo use it :)16:56
reisioI do :p16:56
acerspyro_http://i.imgur.com/yFcmDtG.png Note the window appearing as skewed to the right a bit, I an using 14.10 and this problem has shown up on Chromium and blender so far. Anyone knows what it is?16:57
zy3pDrcconf shows me atieventsd does anyone know what it do?16:57
reisiobut Gentoo is probably one of the least conformity concerned distros there are, so it's not its preference for standardness that produces the executables you apparently prefer16:58

tortibHello everyone.  I'm having a strange problem with Java & SSL not connecting to authserver.mojang.com ; I'm able to run curl https://authserver.mojang.com just fine and receive the JSON output.  However, when using java to make a connection with SSL it doesn't work at all.  Anyone who connects to my minecraft server receives an error stating the authservers are down (which they're not).  You can find out more information about it here -> https://bugs.mojan17:23

devhostI mean that I can't read user's home directories and thus .bash_history20:13

devhostWould that have information about chmod usage?20:14
OerHeksdevhost, did you encrypt /home/ ?20:14

devhostIt's tangent really to the issue.20:19
devhostNothing in /var/log/secure I guess.20:20
EriC^^devhost: check root's .bash_history then20:20
devhostGood point20:21
EriC^^must be in one unless he killed the terminal before bash wrote the history, or erased the secure logs20:21
devhostMight be root, but I can't check other users bash_history20:21

qenghoNaphatul: I think the server might use arp, but I don't think the client does.20:26
Naphatulqengho, rfc spec says client should check the address received, at least that's how i understand it20:29
Naphatuli'm pretty sure this indeed happen and made a small difference a while back but i don't remember much20:29
qenghoNaphatul: Okay, but that doesn't mean your client is doing it.20:29

vfwNaphatul: Is this your home network?20:30
Naphatulvfw, yes20:30
Naphatulqengho, no i figured i might look for the option first, turning it off won't harm anything20:30
vfwNaphatul: How about just static IP?20:31
qenghoNaphatul: Oh, but you're not looking. You're asking us.20:32
Naphatulqengho, i went through all the man pages for dhclient and didn't find anything20:32
Naphatulvfw, that's a possiblity20:32
vfwNaphatul: Yea, that's what I do.  That way, I know where evertying is.20:33
Naphatuli was hoping to keep name resolution since the router is doing it anyway and doesn't work for static adresses20:33
qenghovfw: I just put clients in my DHCP server, so I know where they are too, all in one place.20:33
vfwNaphatul: And if you know there won't be any other clients, you could even trun off the DHCP server on the router.20:34
Naphatulvfw, well there will be new clients, it's just that the router is set to give this mac adress the same ip every time20:34

=== Devon__ is now known as Devon_

Naphatulit still uses dhcp but just gives it the same address, pretty sure it has to go through the same steps since the client doesn't know that20:35
vfwOTR: If you don't need it, turn it off.20:35
OTRbut you need it20:35
vfwNaphatul: So at this point you are using static assigned DHCP list on the router.  Right?20:36
OTRunless you got to much time on your hands to configure every single ip by hand20:37

=== gcollura__ is now known as gcollura
OTRare you talking about ipv6»20:37
Naphatuldhcpcd has a handy --noarp switch i was hoping dhclient had it too20:38
vfwNaphatul: Right, so just set the dhcp pool for others (guest clients), and set your own PC's to static IPs, (ones thar are outside the range of the DHCP pool).20:38
vfwOTR: No, (but it wouldn't matter).  If you have clients set to static IPs, you don't need the dhcp server and so you can just turn it off.20:38
OTRdoesnt static ips defeat the pourpose of net?20:39
vfwOTR: In the event you do have a guest that wants to enter the network, you just give them IP information that you want them to use.20:39
vfwOTR: No20:40
Naphatultotally different things20:40
vfwOTR: It does not defeat the purpose of net or nat20:40

Naphatullelamal, can you try switching back to english while upgrading? i had weird issues myself when using localization20:46
gacThePendulum: could be dual band, 2.4ghz + 5ghz?20:46
vfwJelle_: It will tell you it is blocked.  (But you also have to know if there is a particular server listening on that port as well.)20:47
Jelle_Yeah, I'm using the correct port20:47
gacvfw: it won't tell you if it's blocked - it'll tell you whether it's accessible. just because it isn't accessible doesn't mean it's firewalled on the server20:47
gaccould have crashed, could be running on localhost, could be not NATted20:47
bubbasauresmatrixa1, What you may not know is that the battery makers do not provide firmware for linux any is, backward made.20:47
Jelle_well my browser just keeps loading the page, endlessly20:47

Jelle_so how do I check the firewall issues?20:49
ikoniaJelle_: what is the application you are trying to run20:50
after_rHello... I was wondering is there a way to set up Linux so that it blocks network access to all programs by default, and then I have a config file that says things like "Application at /bin/myapp can access ip, Application at /bin/otherapp can access any ip, etc.."  ?20:50
ikoniaJelle_: as in the sprint managment tool ?20:50
vfwJelle_: It will say filtered if the firewall is blocking it.20:50
Jelle_yeah, that tool :)20:50
after_rand then only those applications would have access to the specified apps20:50
ikoniaJelle_: ok, so that should be running on port 8020:50
after_rI mean specified addresses20:50
ikoniaas it's a web interface20:50
ikoniaJelle_: are you talking about connecting to the web interface or the web interface to the database ?20:50
ThePendulumgac: I'm pretty certain all our networks here are 2.4GHz only atm20:50
stethoJira runs on 8080 by default20:51
gacvfw: filtered can mean many things though...if the machine responds to ping (i.e. a NAT gateway) but the port isn't open (i.e. not portforwarded) you'll still get a filtered response if there is no filter on the server20:51
ThePendulumgac: Confirmed by a quick scan with my phone :P20:51
vfwJelle_: For instance, "80/tcp open  http" vs "80/tcp filtered http"20:51
Jelle_Should be 8080..20:51
bubbasauresmatrixa1, You "think not" is the key phrase honestly.20:51
ikoniaJelle_: ok, so you're trying to run it on port 808020:51
ikoniaJelle_: so by default ubuntu firewall should be blocking that20:51
Jelle_ikonia: I'm just setting my server up, so it is the initial setup20:51
matrixa1bubbasaures, thanks for your help20:51
ikoniaJelle_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW20:51
ikoniaJelle_: that should help you20:52
ZtaAnyone ever install Ubuntu on a Macbook pro for single boot -- ie. no MacOS?  I'm wondering if I *must* make a EFI boot partition?  Or is it enough with simply a root paritition.20:52
Naphatulmatrixa1, you might have a better shot asking #xubuntu, or/and report a bug20:52
chickHi im using ubuntu14 and my top bar has disappeared. I cant see my network status or power status and other notifications How do i bring the bar back up please?20:53
stethoJelle_: I've just joined the channel so missed the original question. If you've installed Jira on Ubuntu server using the binary it just works.20:53
Jelle_I typed ufw enable and now the firewall is enabled, so it was disabled before?20:53
ikoniaJelle_: no, it's enabled by default20:53
Jelle_stetho: Yeah I just installed jira on my server, but I can't connect to it in my browser20:53
stethoDid you install it using the .bin installer?20:54
ikoniaufw will block 8080 by default20:54
ikoniaso a.) make sure it's running b.) make sure the firewall is open20:54
vfwgac: Not ture, far as I can tell. Not with iptables anyway.20:55
Jelle_I think it is running, And i just tried 'sudo ufw enable 8080' but still not working20:55
vfwgac: I just tested with iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -m icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j DRO20:55
ikoniaJelle_: "think" it's running isn't a check20:55
ikoniaJelle_: verify it's running20:55
gacvfw: maybe not, but there are certainly network configurations which will bring up "filtered" when there's no firewall running on the server20:55
ikoniaJelle_: verify you can connect to it locally20:55
ikoniaJelle_: that isn't the right syntax20:55
ikoniaJelle_: READ the page20:55
stethoservice jira status20:56
vfwgac: Can you give me an example...?20:56
Jelle_service jira status is just giving me this: 'Usage: /etc/init.d/jira {start|stop}'20:56
gacnot right now as i can't remember the last box that i saw like it - i thought it was when a ping response worked but a connection didn't20:56
OTRwhy dont router come with a proxie built in?20:56
Jelle_Oh and Ikonia, I did read it :P20:56
gacbut obviously not that, as you've tested20:56
ikoniaJelle_: you didn't read it20:56
ikoniaJelle_: or you wouldn't be typing in non-existant commands20:56
ikoniaas that page gives you examples20:57
stethoOK, /etc/init.d/jira stop and then /etc/init.d/jira start && tail -f /var/log/syslog20:57
OTRwhy dont routers come with a proxie built in?20:57
ikoniaJelle_: a.) verify it's running b.) verify the firewall will allow the connection externally20:57
stethoOTR: Would need a faster processor and therefore make them more expensive.20:57

acerspyrohttp://i.imgur.com/3mhNFup.png Some windows appear skewed to the right when maximized, but mouse aiming is still in relation to where the window should be. Seen with Blender and Chromium so far, anyone knows what's going on?20:58
Jelle_ikonia: I don't see anything about what you're saying it doesn't exist?20:58
vfwThere are a number of ways to test a port for repsonse and sometimes it would depend on what port/server it is.20:58
ikoniaJelle_: nowhere in that page does it say "sudo ufy enable 8080"20:58
OTRnew routers have better cpus that my 10 years old desktop20:58
ikoniaOTR: not really interested in router discussion in here20:58
ThePendulumEvery application trying to access our NAS on all accounts but mine on this laptop freezes. Any ideas how to start figuring this out? It's using cifs20:58
Jelle_oh a typo sorry, I did allow of course20:58
ikoniaJelle_: so a.) verify it's running - then move forward20:58
Jelle_well when I type GET / in my terminal, it is giving me output. Jira support told me that makes sure it is running20:59
Fleuvhisto, I've just completely re-installed apache still I'm able to access one of my old hosts which i can't find in my "/etc/hosts" file where can I find or how can I remove this host(s)?21:00
Fleuvlal histo -> Hi :)21:00
ikoniaJelle_ so if you do "telnet localhost 8080" do you get a socket ?21:00
Jelle_should I try restarting jira?21:00
stethoOTR: Do you really think a ten year old desktop is a good point of reference? My watch has a better processor than a ten year old computer.21:00
ikoniaJelle_: no need for that21:01
OTRproxies worked back then21:01
ikoniaJelle_: you know you have $something listening21:01
ikoniaJelle_: so what do you see if you do lesmith@68-184-130-106.dhcp.stbr.ga.charter.com] has quit [Read error:21:01
ikoniasudo ufw status21:01
ikonia(use a pastebin for the output)21:01
gacproxies work now, not sure of your point...21:02
acerspyroIs it that people don't notice my question or is it that noone knows the answer?21:02
vfwJelle_: You might use netstat on the server to see if you have what you thing you have.21:02
OTRi mean proxies are so usefull i m amazed why router dont have them builtin21:02
vfwJelle_: netstat -pantu21:02
Jelle_i get: Status: active, and 8080 Action allow and from anywhere21:02
ikoniaOTR last warning - we do not want router talk in here21:03
Jelle_yeah netstat is also giving me 8080 'listen'21:03
ikoniaJelle_: ok, so you know a.) your server is listening on 8080 b.) your server is allowing connections to 808021:03
ikoniaJelle_: so what's your client doing ?21:03
vfwJelle_: And what did nmap say about it?21:03
OTRhow do i setup proxie on my ubuntu?21:03
Jelle_I'm trying to connect to it in the browser, but it is just not loading21:03
Fleuvacerspyro, im not familiar with these kind of problems also I dont know the answer, sorry.21:03
Jelle_vfw: hmm, nmap? I missed that one21:04
ikoniaOTR what type of proxy21:04
gacOTR: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/squid.html would be a good starting piont, assuming you mean a web proxy21:04
Fleuvacerspyro: Are you able to fix it temporarily?21:04
OTRshould i run a ubuntu server install on a vm and route all traffic thru it?21:04
vfwJelle_: From the client:  nmap -p 8080 192.168.x.x21:04
acerspyroFleuv: ?21:04
FleuvOr do you have to close the whole program21:05
Jelle_vfw: so just my own terminal on my computer?21:05
ikoniaOTR why ?21:05
acerspyroIt only does it when maximized, it doesn't do it if it's windowed21:05
ikoniaOTR: what benifit would that give you ?21:05
vfwOTR: squid21:05
Fleuvacerspyro: Any other strange symptoms occur?21:06
OTRto have a private network21:06
Jelle_Wait I tried connecting to it, and now it is working! Awesome :D21:06
vfwOTR: And to filter content that you don't want... etc...21:06
OTRnot having the desktop facing the internet21:06
acerspyroFleuv: Well, as I said, the mouse pointing still relates to the normal position of the window rather than the buggy one currently shown21:06
OTRyes filter21:07
acerspyroAnd, maybe that's not related, but trying to alt + tab in a fullscreen window screws up21:07
OTRrun adblock21:07
Jelle_Hmm, shouldn't have been so happy. When I click to the next page it isn't loading either :/21:07
OTRfor eg21:07
vfwOTR: A proxy has it's uses, but only if the need is there would it be worth the touble to set on up.21:08
OTRblock unwanted protocols21:08
lelamalNaphatul: ok, thanks, I'll try that!21:08
acerspyroI can interact with all the applications, I can do keybinds and everything, but the fullscreen program is taking up the whole screen, so I have to go back in that program via alt + tab, and either do Win + D before alt tabbing or ask the program to go windows.21:08
NaphatulOTR, usually people use a firewall for that, and i'm not sure what 'protocols' you wouldn't want21:08
OTRjust the caching feature of proxie alone is a good enough reason21:09
OTRit could save like 50 percent of trafic21:09
whoppaz13I need help.  I have 2 installs of Ubuntu 14.04 on one hdd.  One that's functional and one that is not.  The non-functional one is Partition 1 and the functional one is Partition 6.  If I wipe out Partition 1, will I also lose the grub loader and not make it bootable anymore?21:09
vfwOTR: True, (it can cut down on outside triffic).21:10
ikoniaI don't think you'll see much benifit at home21:10
OTRyes i will21:10
Fleuvacerspyro: My experience with full screen mode on ubuntu is that it sux on most multi platform compatible programs21:11
Jordan_Uwhoppaz13: You should always re-run grub-install after making any partition changes (it's not always strictly needed, but it's easier to just always do it than to determine if you need to or not).21:11
Jordan_Uwhoppaz13: You should also always have a LiveCD/USB handy in case something goes wrong.21:12
acerspyroFleuv: Which is pretty much all programs available.21:12
acerspyroBecause Blender does it when I alt-tab from it while it's fullscreened21:12
Quatrokingdoes an open source client for skype exists?21:13
acerspyroQuatroking: Nope, the Skype protocol is closed21:13
Fleuvacerspyro: are you talking about fullscreen like watching youtube videos or playing games21:13
acerspyroPidgin can connect to Skype, but you still need the Skype program21:13
OerHeksSkype core is closedsource, client can be open21:13
Quatrokingthe skype client on linux is outdated by over 2 years and is pathetic21:13
whoppaz13Thank you Jordan_U.  I will try it out.  Would it matter though that its all on the same physical drive?21:13
acerspyroQuatroking: Probably not a solid solution, but I recommend switching to Google Hangout.21:13
vfwwhoppaz13: If you just need more space on the other partitions, you can just set partition 1 to a very small size, (like maybe only one or two meg), and that way, nothing will need to be changed.  But if you delete it, yes changes will need to be made so that your system will boot and run.21:14
acerspyroFleuv: Fullscreen programs21:14
whoppaz13I like that idea even better, vfw.  Gparted good for that??21:14
acerspyroFor example: Alt + F11 in Blender.21:14
acerspyroTry to Alt-Tab21:14
rich_skype is not just closed it is monitored telcom spyware.21:14
vfwwhoppaz13: Yes.21:15
acerspyrorich_: That's off-scope, tho.21:15
acerspyroFleuv: I use 14.10 btw, idk if I mentionned21:15
vfwvfw: I keep a gparted liveCD handy. http://gparted.org/download.php21:15
Quatrokingholy hell when I click away skype it keeps running in the background with no way to open it up again without restarting the entire process21:15
Quatrokingit doesn't even save my microsoft login21:15
acerspyroQuatroking: 32-bit only21:16
Fleuvhiihi, nope acespyro but yes were talking about the same thing21:16
OTRyou can do skype like chats using chrome now21:16
whoppaz13ok, cool. Thanks, vfw.  I appreciate the info!21:16
OTRso ive read21:16
Quatrokingacerspyro, i installed the 12.04 multiarch deb tho21:16
vfwQuatroking: Yes, that is the way it works. You would have to kill the actual application.21:16
reisioQuatroking: sure it's not just in the tray?21:16
lvlephwhat is the new command for gnome-sound-applet in 14.10?21:16
Quatrokingreisio, nope, it doesn't go to the tray21:16
reisioQuatroking: just use http://talky.io/ instead21:16
vfwQuatroking: pkill skype21:16
gacQuatroking: did you do it through dpkg by hand? or using apt/software center? there's a dependency required for skype tray icons to work in Unity, IIRC21:17
acerspyroreisio: What tray? Does Skype have any idea that Linux even had a tray?21:17
jhutchins_wkwhoppaz13: The MBR is outside of the partition table, so changing partitions won't have any effect on Grub's first stages. If you chanage the number of partitions on the disk, though, partition 6 would become partiton 5, and Grub might not find it.  You can fix that by changing the location in the grub configuration, or by using UUIDs instead of device numbers.21:17
reisioacerspyro: yes it has21:17
Quatrokinggac, software center21:17
Naphatulskype is a pain on windows let alone linux, dread every moment i have to use it21:17
reisioSkype actually relies on 100% GNU/Linux servers21:17
acerspyroLOL I KNEW IT!21:17
reisioMS bought Skype, its original creators were half sensible21:17
acerspyroThey couldn't run it on Windows, they just couldn't. Stability issues.21:17
reisioacerspyro: I'm sure the original authors thought that21:18
jhutchins_wkOTR: GoogleTalk has had video for a while, but it's not quite as reliable as skype.21:18
acerspyrojhutchins_wk: It has video21:18
acerspyroIt works perfectly, I use it commonly.21:18
Fleuvnah it works okay.21:18
lvlephwhat is the new command for gnome-sound-applet in 14.10?21:18
Quatrokinginstalled sni-qt, now I got it in the tray21:18
jhutchins_wkacerspyro: Yeah, it's getting better, but some systems still have trouble with it.21:18
FleuvSkype really could use some UI improvements in ubuntu21:18
OTRgoogle buisness is spying the users21:19
Quatrokingoh hey it actually logged in automatically now21:19
reisiowhy replace one proprietary trap with another one21:19
gacthe problem with discussing alternatives to skype is that most of these aren't options as skype is where the subscribers are...21:19
acerspyroOTR: what isn't nowadays?21:19
OTRits as bad as NS21:19
reisiowebrtc will kill them both21:19
jhutchins_wkFleuv: Not gonna happen, we're lucky they keep it up-to-date.21:19
vfwFleuv: Tell Microsoft21:19
jhutchins_wkI think continued availablity for Linux is probably related to the need to provide it for Android.21:19
vfwFleuv: Or, use google-talk21:19
OTRnobody uses netmeeting anymore :(21:20
reisioit's not as if it takes any particular effort to create a GNU/Linux package21:20
reisioand every Skype user on GNU/Linux they can advertize their own products to21:20
vfwjhutchins_wk: I don't think it depends on it, but it *is* a factor.21:20

ikoniait's the same package set ?21:21
lagboxAdephit, what do you want to see ?21:21
gacacerspyro: oh yeah, agreed21:21
FleuvOkay so Microsoft said, why did you even removed Windows?!21:21
Quatrokingthat's a discount of, like, 390 bucks?21:21

ikoniaclouddig: there are many packages that make it up21:22

clouddigso those instructions are out of date?21:23
Quatrokingyeah yeah, taxes and stuff21:23
clouddigikonia: so those instructions aren't valid anymore?21:23

lagboxAdephit, and what seems to be the issue ?21:23
ansivirusAdephit, open browser and http://localhost/info.php21:23
ikoniaclouddig: not interested in thos instructions, they are not ubuntus docs21:24
ikoniaclouddig: ask the guy who wrote them if they are still valid21:24
ikoniaclouddig: looks like it depends on a PPA21:24
clouddigikonia: oh. Are there Ubuntu specific docs to install Openstack?21:24
ikoniatry https://help.ubuntu.com or wiki.ubuntu.com there maybe docs21:24
test0Hi, I used sudo kill -9 0"21:25
ikoniatest0: why did you do that ?21:25
AdephitNot Found21:25

ikoniatest0: ok, so reboot and it will work again21:26
ikoniatest0: you can't kill "all" processes21:26
jhutchins_wkOTR: Actually, android-on-x86 is highly dependent on the specific hardware you have.  It's not as modular and flexible as Linux, you need an image designed for your hardware.21:26
k1ltest0: what do you want to do at all?21:27
ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process.21:27
lagboxAdephit, sounds like apache isn't setup right21:27
test0i wanted to kill as many processes at once as possible21:27
clouddigikonia: it seems that ubuntu gives similar instructions http://www.ubuntu.com/download/cloud/install-ubuntu-openstack, but they work (so far)21:27
lagboxtest0, why ?21:27
test0just to see if it's possible21:27
test0it it not?21:27
lagboxhow about i just say no so you can stop your expirement21:28
k1ltest0: no, that doesnt make sense21:28
jhutchins_wktest0: Generally there's no reason to be able to do that.21:28
the-bosswhat experiment ?21:28
gacAdephit: if you look in the apache error log (/var/log/apache2/error.log, maybe? i dunno the location) then it'll hopefully have some information on why it can't find your php file21:28
wiakany of you using supervisor?, i get "su: must be run from a terminal" error when i try to run rtorrent via it21:28
the-bossback to basics?21:29
the-bossman look at this,teaching the su command..21:29

ikoniathe-boss: drop it21:30
ikoniathe-boss: help or be quiet21:30
the-bosswhat i can do for help?21:30
ikoniahelp with the question being asked21:30
the-bossi was only jocking friend..21:30
test0i wondered if it was possible to make it simpler and kill 0 or kill -1 seemed to be supposed to do that21:31
k1lthe-boss: please keep this channel clear for real ubuntu support. we have #ubuntu-offtopic for chit chat21:31
lagboxyou want to kill all process ... shutdown -rn now21:31
excognachi all, am trying to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 but looks like http://pastebin.com/NaLfqBxc something i do wrong...21:31
the-bossi can solve these problems easily if you tell what the question here..21:32
k1lexcognac: why -d?21:32
gacexcognac: you probably don't want -d, that seems to be only going for the next version up which is EOL and probably removed from the mirrors21:32
test0but if it's not possible to kill as many processes as possible then what does kill -9 `ps -eo pid` do? and yes turning it off kills the processes but i want to see what happens if you kill all the processes and leave it on21:32
ikoniatest0 the machine will hang21:33
test0i realize my question is probably rather silly but i thought it was technically possible21:33
ikoniatest0: thats what will happen, test over21:33
lagboxyea expirement over21:33
lagboxyou may want to reverse what you are doing if you are trying to find the "minimal" amount of processes21:34
excognacgac: same result wihout -d21:34
lagboxstart from rc up21:34
test0so how do I do that? that's not what happens when i do sudo kill -9 `ps -eo pid`21:34
Jordan_Utest0: If you want to talk more about this, please join #ubuntu-offtopic as it's not really a support question but more just having fun (which there's nothing wrong with, in the right channel :).21:34
excognack1l: thanks but it doesn't work without -d either21:34
gactest0: your kill -9 command is probably killing the single pid that you're providing it. totally different thing21:34
gacexcognac: is your 12.04 installation totally up to date?21:35
k1lexcognac: run a "sudo apt-get update"21:35
excognacgac:I'm fullz updated yeah21:36
k1lexcognac: maybe the mirror is down. so if it doesnt work after the update try to set to another mirror or the main server21:36
gacno, the issue is that it's trying to update to 12.10 which is EOL, and not the latest LTS21:36
gacexcognac: in your /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades file, is the Prompt set to "normal" or "lts"?21:37
vfwexcognac: grep Prompt /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades21:38
Adephiti discover the problem :-DDDDDD thanks gac :-D21:40

excognacgac: thx i set to to lts now21:41
Adephit./var/www/html/info.php not /var/www/info.php lol21:41
gacexcognac: cool, if it's set to LTS it should try and upgrade you to 14.04 which is obviously a current release :)21:41

vfw jononeone EOL for 13.10 Desktop was July 17th, 201421:43
gacdoesn't explain why it suddenly stopped booting though :/21:44
lagboxgoogling that error pops up some bugs on launchpad21:44
vfwjononeone: Is it server install?21:45
SemajnadThe only other question is ( and this might be an easier solution ). I've created a second partition, I believe it's something like sdc6, and installed the same version of Ubuntu on, so I'm dual booting two versions of Ubuntu 13.10. How do I boot to this partition instead of the primary?21:45

Ben64Semajnad: 13.10 is no longer supported, you should be installing 14.0421:46
jononeonevfw: no its 12.04 lts21:46
lagboxRxTx127, what graphics driver ?21:46
vfwjononeone: I thought you said 13.1021:46
SemajnadBen64, I need to get my data off first, as I have an unbootable 13.10.21:46
lagboxyea i have had nothing but problems with fglrx21:46
k1ljononeone: #ubuntu-tv should be the channel for that21:46
SemajnadHow do I boot to partition sdc6 instead of sdc1?21:47
Ben64Semajnad: so boot a live cd or usb or dvd or something21:47
lagboxtry alt+ctrl+f1 to get to virtual console and see if it locks up21:47
jononeonek1l: Ok do you know anything about the error?21:47
vfwjononeone:  sudo apt-get install bride-utils21:47
RxTx127all tty works21:47
lagboxthats good21:47
lagboxand if you alt+ctlr+f7 you go back to black ?21:47
k1ljononeone: sorry, but no21:47
RxTx127it work too21:47
teezwI have an usb-speaker and it works but I have one problem: On the speaker there are three buttons to control the volume (volume up, mute, volume down). Unfortunately, they don't work. Can someone help me?21:48
jononeonevfw: no version 12.04 witch sould be the only version able to install ubuntu tv on .. ?21:48
lagboxi know i had to adjust some compiz settings to get some things to not be a problem21:48
vfwjononeone: I'm sorry, I got you mixed up with someone else.  Disregard21:48
jononeonevfw: what does that do?21:48
SemajnadAt the moment I'm stuck with a remote dedicated server, looking at 200 pounds an hour for them to help, and a unbootable 13.10 Desktop OS. I have created a second partition with a new version of Ubuntu 13.10 on, but need to boot to that (sdc6) instead of sdc1. How do you boot to a new partition?21:48
lagboxactually i never had to use fglrx until i just upgraded and i am not happy about it at all21:49
RxTx127hum :/21:49
vfwSemajnad: sudo apt-get install bride-utils21:49
RxTx127not good21:49
Ben64Semajnad: how did you install 13.1021:49
jononeonevfw: i get this after running command:21:49
lagboxRxTx127, try installing xfce as alternative desktop and login to that and see if you get a desktop21:49
jononeoneReading state information... Done21:49
jononeoneE: Unable to locate package bride-utils21:49
SemajnadBen64:  The host mounted the ISO from their end because their KVM was playing up and I installed it on a seperate partition.21:49
SemajnadBen64: Hoping I could then boot into that aand recover the data using FTP21:50
Jordan_USemajnad: Start by installing a supported version of Ubuntu, like 14.04.21:50
jononeonevfw: no problem. :-)21:50
SemajnadJordan_U: I don't want to do that as the KVM is VERY slow. I have a working copy of 13.10 and just need to know how to boot to it.21:50
Ben64Semajnad: if it was indeed working, it would boot21:50
RxTx127ushh, i will try to back to default driver before, and if it not work i will install xfce ok ? :p21:50
Jordan_USemajnad: 14.04 shouldn't be any slower than 13.10, but it definitely is more secure, and actually supported here.21:51
lagboxsounds good ... trouble shooting is always fun :)21:51
SemajnadBen64: My primary install of 13.10 is not working. I have installed aa second copy of it on another partition and need to boot to that one instead.21:51
RxTx127yes :p i like problems !21:51
Ben64Semajnad: i understand that, but if you truly installed it properly, it would boot automatically21:51
SemajnadJordan_U: The problem is not speed or security, it's just the fact that I don't want to have to go through the install procedure again. I just need to know how to boot to sdc6 instead of sdc1?21:51
SemajnadIs it an easy procedure to change the primary boot parititon?21:52
Ben64Semajnad: why don't you boot the livecd again, and use that environment to recover your files21:52
vfwjononeone: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity-2d/+bug/98394221:52

Jordan_USemajnad: This channel only supports supported versions of Ubuntu, period. I'm sure that you'll save much more time by re-installing a supported version of Ubuntu compared to the time you will lose due to not having support.21:53
freijonSemajnad: you could edit fstab to boot sdc621:53
SemajnadBen64 is Live CD just the 'Try Ubuntu'. Also, I don't believe I get network connectivity and what I really need to do is install an FTP Server so I can recover my files to my local PC.21:53

RxTx127and reinstall xorg :) and reconfigure !21:54
Ben64Semajnad: everything works in a livecd, ftp, ssh, networking21:54

RobinHood2015How do I convert an existing ext4 partition to BTRFS?22:00
lagboxi think google has the answer to that one22:01
reisiomight want to be able to answer such a question yourself, before moving to a beta FS22:01
Quatrokingwhenever I hibernate/suspend, ubuntu freezes when I resume22:02
Quatrokingwhat do22:03
RobinHood2015reisio: So you recommend sticking with ext4, then?22:03
lagboxQuatroking, what video drivers ?22:03
Quatrokinglagbox, I use the open source onces because my nvidia card is toasted22:03
Quatrokingwhen I use nvidia drivers my desktop literally looks as if it's on LSD22:03
mgolischRobinHood2015: why do you want btrfs? do you have any use for even one of its features?22:03
excognacgac:thx mate so, i just need to edit the partition table in terminal to the correct value, right?22:03
vfwRobinHood2015: You don't convert to a different filesystem, you reformat to a different filesystem (and wipe any existing data in the process).22:03
lagboxvfw you can convert filesystems22:04
gacexcognac: i can't really help with a solution - I've never seen that happen myself, and i'm not even sure how one *could* make that partition table in the first place22:04
mgolischactualy btrfs allows conversion from extfs22:04
lagboxthere are numerous tools for doing so22:04
RobinHood2015Well, I'm using TimeShift, a System Restore utility similar to Windows' for Ubuntu. The program is written by Tony George, and I've seen on his website that BTRFS is supposed to be awesome...22:05
vfwreading https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Conversion_from_Ext322:06
RobinHood2015It's actually supposed to let you be able to resize partitions while they are live, like NTFS does.22:06
a4hi guys, I'm trying to get sound working on my thinkpad, which still doesn't work. I've installed alsa and alsa-tools, then I added my username to audio (sudo adduser a audio). Afther I did those things, I restarted my system, and tried to play some music with mocp, which gave me the following error: FATAL_ERROR: No valid sound driver! I don't know what else I can do. Can somebody provide me some direction22:07
a4how to solve this?22:07
vfwI stand corrected.  There appears to be a conversion program btrfs-convert.  (Apparently can *can* teach an old dog new tricks.)22:07
vfwa4: alsamixer22:08
vfwa4: (What does it say about your sound card?)22:09
excognacgac: thanks, i think i'll mess with testdisk or so22:10
gacexcognac: back up first ;)22:10
vfwa4: Does it show any muted channels?22:10
excognacgac:ofc, it's in process22:10
gaci don't think it'll be a major deal as the actual partitions inside that extended partition do end inside the disk, so shrinking the extended partition container *should* be ok. but you never know...22:10
lagboxwhat could possibly go wrong ... famous last words  :)22:11

vfwa4: Is that your sound card?  ATI R6xx HDMI ?22:14
vfwlagbox: Yea, don't think that is it.22:14
lagboxi think it is probably the hdmi part of the card .. and it has another card listed22:14
lagboxsometimes the hdmi gets listed first for some reason22:14
vfwa4: F6  (see what you get.)22:14
vfwlagbox: At any rate, it shows to be muted.22:15

halpmewhere is it?22:21
halpmeit's not gnome anymore22:21
vfwa4: Some laptops also have manual volume controls, (and they will override software ones if turned down, or muted).22:21
lagboxhehe i have had to use audio tools to go in and play with virtual pins so i can get all my speakers working ... there sometimes is weird proprietary stuff going on22:22
vfwhalpme:  service --status-all22:23
vfwhalpme: (from terminal window)22:24
halpmevfw: what does it do?22:24
vfwhalpme: Shows list of services and tells their status22:24
halpmeand how does it solve the need to know where is config files for the X service?22:25
vfwhalpme:  init daemon control tool22:25
vfwhalpme: Oh, ok.  Startup scripts?22:26
halpmeno, enviroment configs22:26
lvlephmy media keys only work after logging into Unity/Gnome, but if I am using i3wm or am sitting in lightdm they don't work. Any idea?22:26
vfwhalpme: You want to know where the startup scrips are?  NO you want configuration files?22:26
halpmevfw: configuration files22:26
lvlephUbuntu 14.10 btw22:26

lvlephASHER1, http://askubuntu.com/questions/449486/windows-installer-for-ubuntu-14-04-lts-onwards22:28
vfwhalpme: An example would be printer deamon, (cups): /etc/cups/cupsd.conf22:28
gacoh, it does, my bad22:28
halpmevfw: well i asked for the X SERVER (not anymore gnome) conf files, i know they are located in /etc/but which subfolders and which files are?22:29
=== doge is now known as cups
lagboxare you looking for like Xorg.conf or something ?22:29
vfwhalpme: Ok  /etc/X1122:29
lvlephSo why would media keys work in Unity but not i3wm or lightdm?22:29
vfwhalpme: What are you needing to do?22:30
halpmevfw: just wanna read them22:30
gaclvleph: there's probably a daemon running in the background to listen to those specific key events, and take action on them. which, if it's a part of unity, probably doesn't run on the login screen and won't run in another window manager22:30
lagboxmight be some gsettings involved with those keys22:30
vfwhalpme: You might be interested in  /var/log/Xorg.0.log22:31
lvlephlagbox, I run unity-settings-daemon on start of i322:31
halpmevfw: what does it contain, except logs, which are regards of interest?22:31
vfwhalpme: Because, unless you have a proprietary driver module installed, the configuration file will not exist.22:31
halpmevfw: and the default configs?22:32
vfwhalpme: But if it does exist it would be in /etc/X11/22:32
vfwhalpme: /etc/X11/xorg.conf22:32
halpmevfw: X11 is not just the deamon who, next, call and start the enviroment who write GUI, effects and all?22:33
vfwhalpme: But you'll see what you have going on now in /var/log/Xorg.0.log22:33
lvlephhalpme, I don't think we understand what you want. I certainly don't understand half of what you are typing.22:34
vfwhalpme: less /var/log/Xorg.0.log22:35
vfwhalpme: See if that shows what you are looking for.22:35
k1lhalpme: the *dm (like lightdm) sorts all the xserver stuff on ubuntu. so if i understand you right you want to look at that configs22:35
lvlephk1l, the configs for lightdm only  really tells you session info.22:35
vfwhalpme: /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf22:36
icloudI want to pick icon-theme-name for lightdm, how do i know what icon-theme-name i have available?22:36
halpmevfw: i see the logs22:36

lvlephicloud, you can look into http://www.maketecheasier.com/customize-lightdm-themes/22:36
vfwhalpme: Well, that won't show much.22:36
halpmevfw: lightdm.conf does not exist22:37
halpmei have users.conf22:37
lvlephhalpme, what are you actually looking for?22:37
vfwhalpme: /etc/init.d/lightdm22:38
vfwhalpme: But that's just the startup script.22:38
icloudlvleph: i was there, it doesn't tell me much,  i am inside lightdm.conf, i was able to change my wall paper for lightdm and pick the theme-name22:38
halpmeivaldi: in newest releases of ubuntu, GNOME was changed with a custom X system, i wanna know where is the config files for that22:38
vfwlvleph: I think he just wants to know where stuff is.....22:39
lvlephicloud, there is a lightdm-tweak or something22:39
lagboxwhat about gnome ?22:39
lvlephvfw, after asking multiple times and being ignored; I am just going to ignore halpme22:39

phixunity == buggy as all hell on my computer, I am sure it runs better on other peoples hardware22:41
lvlephI suppose I should check the change logs for 14.04 to 14.10 to figure out how things changed with media keys22:42
k1lhalpme: what? can you rephrase the issue you want to invistigate?22:42
lagboxactually 14.10 has fixed my issues with unity for the most part :) finally22:42
halpmek1l: i have 14.10 with some packages that does not impact on unity22:42

lagboxcognitios, an irc channel ?23:00
lagboxask in #freenode23:00
cognitiosthank you23:00
k1lcognitios: just join a channel. then its created. you need to register it. but that is a support issue of #freenode23:00
halpmek1l: dconf is writed where in that link?23:00
[Saint_]IS dist-upgrade failing on linux-generic dependencies a known issue in 14.10?23:01
k1lhalpme: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/utopic/en/man1/dconf-editor.1.html23:01
Bradoand not bother freenode23:01
k1l[Saint_]: no23:01
halpmek1l: it say "gconf is not the same as dconf/gsettings (it is the older config system)."23:01
k1lBrado: that is what that channel is for23:01
k1lhalpme: so? i told you that gconf is deprecated23:02
ki7mtwhy would there be a dist-upgrade if a point release has not been issues?23:02
Hephaestosi need some help with setting up my own irc server23:02
ki7mt... issued23:02
Ben64ki7mt: dist-upgrade has no relationship to a point release23:02
[Saint_]^ this23:02
Bradohttps://blog.freenode.net/2008/04/registering-a-channel-on-freenode/ ... Im bored23:02
lvlephokay, when I login using lightdm what does lightdm run to get unity up?23:02
ki7mtwhat's the diff then ?23:03
Jelle_I get  'There is insufficient memory for the Java Runtime Environment to continue. ', how can I give more RAM to my java service?23:03
Ben64!dist-upgrade | ki7mt23:03
ubottuki7mt: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.23:03
halpmek1l: so dconf is deprecated and i should use gconf according to link, but i must use dconf because gconf is deprecated according to you, what should i do so? it's pretty confusing23:03
[Saint_]Ask Google what dist-upgrade is for23:03
ki7mtBen64, Thanks.23:03
ubottuA dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.23:04
bazhang[Saint_], ^23:04
ki7mtlol .. I've had that backwards for a long time them.. whoops !23:04
[Saint_]Anyway: TL;DR - dist-upgrade is failing to apply the kernel image due to a cyclical dependency with the linux-generic and linux-image-generic metapackages in the 14.10 release image23:04
k1lhalpme: gconf is deprecated23:04
[Saint_]bazhang: Ummm...thanks?23:04
halpmek1l: so the command is dconf /apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/23:04
[Saint_]*I* know what its for....23:04
k1lhalpme: gconf was for gnome2. dconf for gnome3.23:04
Ben64[Saint_]: pastebin "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"23:04
[Saint_]bazhang: I suspect you wanted to direct that to someone else.23:04
[Saint_]Either that, or you misread.23:05
quillfordHow can I get my com23:05
k1lhalpme: i will stop searching stuff for you know since you dont listen but just click on commands you see without even thinking what you are doing. good luck23:05
OerHeks[Saint} channel policy is: we do not suggest to google23:05
Jelle_I get  'There is insufficient memory for the Java Runtime Environment to continue. ', how can I give more RAM to my java service? Or should I try updatingj ava?23:05
bazhang[Saint_], you said to google it, please dont do that in future23:05
quillfordHow can I get my computer to basically be like a chromecast? I mainly want YouTube and possibly Netflix. I am currently on Ubuntu23:06
halpmek1l: maybe you are pointing me things that say another thing as you did and i am confusing23:06
rwwhalpme: the quote you gave says the *same* thing as k1l said.23:06
[Saint_]Please don't ask people to search out information they can find out themselves trivially?23:06
[Saint_]What kind of bullshit nany crap is that?23:06
bazhang[Saint_], correct. just dont answer if you dont know23:06
halpmerww: so i misunderstand, that make sense23:06
k1l[Saint_]: dont get distracted. lets focus on the technical support23:07
RobinHood2015Tried to convert my Ubuntu system to BTRFS, but when I did so and rebooted, I got "error: unknown filesystem," "Entering rescue mode..." and "grub rescue>". Did I miss a step in the conversion process?23:07
* [Saint_] remebers why he rarely spends time in this channel23:07
lagboxdid you update configs to tell it what filesystem is on the partition ?23:07
halpmerww: but dconf launched on the path suggested by link return nothing, so i don't have any idea of what i should do23:07
k1l[Saint_]: can you show a pastebin of the actual apt-get command failing?23:08
RobinHood2015Yes, I edited /etc/fstab on the partition in question.23:08
k1l[Saint_]: best is to run "apt-get update" before23:08
[Saint_]k1l: yes, indeed. sec.23:08
lagboxso what was the reason for switching filesystems ?23:08
Jelle_Is it possible to allocate more ram to my java-service please?23:08
RobinHood2015To unlock resizing of partitions while they are live, among other features.23:09
lagboxcan i ask why you need that ability .. im just interested23:09
halpmei am using dconf list /apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/ and it give nothing as a result, so there's no variable on that folder, or i am pointing wrong folder, or something i don't understand but block me23:09
lagboxsounds interesting23:09
lagboxJelle_, perhaps there is a flag you can pass23:09
Jelle_lagbox: please tell me more :D23:10
lagbox-Xms <initial size> -Xmx <max size>23:11
Jelle_And where to set the service? Java in this case23:11
[Saint_]k1l: http://pastebin.com/LMBk8DfM23:12
[Saint_](absolutely clean 14.10 install)23:12
RobinHood2015Anyway, I'm thinking I forgot to do "update-grub" on the newly converted root partition.23:12
halpmewell i assume i must ask somewhere else23:12
[Saint_]removing the linux-generic metapackage doesn't help.23:12
lagboxJelle_, there might be a config type file for that service that you can alter23:13
vfwRobinHood2015: Then boot from the install media and do the recovery option.23:13
halpmethank you for your time anyway23:13
vfwRobinHood2015: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub23:13
vfwhalpme: Send pizza and beer23:14
[Saint_]k1l: any ideas?23:14
k1l[Saint_]: its doesnt fail on the package depency. it fails before23:14
Jelle_lagbox can you give me more information please :D23:14
lagboxnot really23:15
Jelle_too bad!23:15
RobinHood2015"sudo apt-get install boot-repair", correct?23:15
lagboxdoes that service have a config file in etc or anything ?23:15
lagboxplus what service is it ?23:15
Jelle_Java :P23:15
Jelle_' There is insufficient memory for the Java Runtime Environment to continue. '23:15
lagboxjust java23:15
lagboxi dont think so23:15
Jelle_So I need to upgrade my server :D23:16
lagboxyea i dont know what service your talking about23:16
Jelle_well actually its Jira23:16
Jelle_but jira is crashing due to Java23:16
lagboxwhy didn't you say so23:16
lagboxgoogle   how to allocate more memory for JIRA ubuntu23:17
vfwJelle_: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=207997223:17
[Saint_]k1l: any ideas on a way forward here? I suspect I'm not the only one hitting this issue, as its a 100% clean, first boot, 14.10 image installed specifically to reproduce the error.23:17
[Saint_](I wanted to remove any possibility of user configuration snafoos)23:17
k1l[Saint_]: some special setup with /boot partition or encryption?23:17
Jelle_thank you sir!23:18
[Saint_]k1l: its just a 100% kosher "let the installer do what it wants" setup.23:18
[Saint_]single partition space, nothing fancy.23:18
givelloBashing-om: Ill go to bed sorry, here's hoping you or eric will be around tomorrow to try and fix it again...23:20
givelloBashing-om: if I cant get it to work Ill just save my game saves and reinstall, but I'd rather not23:21
k1l[Saint_]: what gives you "sudo update-grub"?23:21
[Saint_]k1l: it is a dual-boot environment, but that was working happily for several years prior.23:21
[Saint_]I re-images the Ubuntu section the other day, and everything fell to crap.23:22
k1l[Saint_]: i think the "grub-probe: error: not a directory." (line 160 in that paste) is triggering the issue23:22
RobinHood2015Okay, I'm back... I tried to update GRUB on my hard drive after converting my partitions to BTRFS, but the command returns "error: failed to get canonical path of `/cow'. What's wrong now?23:22
[Saint_]k1l: saint@saint-desktop:~$ sudo update-grub Generating grub configuration file ... grub-probe: error: not a directory.23:22
vfw[Saint_]: uname -r23:22
lagboxwhy would you need to resize partitions while running ?23:22
k1l[Saint_]: yes, that is the cause, not the package installation23:23
RobinHood2015to create even more partitions, naturally23:23
lagboxyea thats the part i am intrigued about23:24
vfw[Saint_]: ls /boot/vmlinuz-3.* |pastebinit23:24
=== edward_ is now known as XChat_2321
RobinHood2015Anyway, how can I fix GRUB to recognize that my partitions are now in BTRFS format?23:25
[Saint_]vfw: /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-23-generic  /boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-24-generic23:25
RobinHood2015Or do I need to install a whole new bootloader entirely?23:25
vfw[Saint_]: So you have upgraded to kernel but you've not rebooted since then and are still running ?23:26
vfw[Saint_]: Or_______________?23:26
[Saint_]vfw: I've done nothing but what you see in the initial pastebin23:27
[Saint_]its an absolutely clean install specifically to replicate this error23:27
[Saint_]I've done nothing but apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade23:27
vfw[Saint_]: sudo apt-get update && sudo upgrade23:28
vfw[Saint_]: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade23:28
k1lthere is an issue somewhere with grub23:28
ObrienDave[Saint_]: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade23:29
k1li dont know if its the /boot partition, the write permissions on anything in /boot or with plain grub settings23:29
[Saint_]Is this "lets ask [Saint_] to re-do the things he quite obviously already did" day? ;)23:29
RobinHood2015kll: oh? you mean, a problem in that GRUB simply does not know BTRFS because BTRFS is such an unstable FS?23:30
vfw[Saint_]: Is it working?23:30
[Saint_]No...as stated earlier.23:30
vfw[Saint_]: Do it now.23:30
k1lRobinHood2015: sorry, was not referring to you23:30
lagboxwait you changed your boot partition to BTRFS ?23:30
[Saint_]After the failed dist-upgrade, apt-get upgrade shits its pants in exactly the same way23:31
RobinHood2015yes... was that a mistake?23:31
vfw[Saint_]: Let us know if it completes without error.23:31
lagboxi think os23:31
[Saint_]vfw: it does not23:31
k1lRobinHood2015:  but i am not sure if that works with grub that way23:31
vfw[Saint_]: apt-get -f install23:31
lagboxi forget what version of grub we are using23:31
kojakzitohow do I solve such a problem?23:31
lagboxit might support it23:32
kojakzitoapache2 : Depends: apache2-bin (= 2.4.6-2ubuntu2) but it is not going to be installed            Depends: apache2-data (= 2.4.6-2ubuntu2) but it is not going to be installed            Conflicts: apache2.2-common but 2.2.22-1ubuntu1.7 is to be installed23:32
kojakzitoim on 12.04 LTS23:32
[Saint_]vfw: shits the bed with the same list of errors23:32
k1lkojakzito: PPAs or other 3rd party .debs installed?23:32
RobinHood2015It's GRUB 2, isn't it?23:32
k1lRobinHood2015: yep. that is the standard on ubuntu23:32
gackojakzito: ubuntu 12.04 comes with apache 2.2, it seems like you're using a PPA or a .deb package which is for a later version of ubuntu, and your version doesn't have the correct dependencies available23:33
lagboxatleast on 14.1023:33
vfw[Saint_]: dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-extra-3.16.0-24-generic23:33
RobinHood2015so would GRUB 2 support BTRFS?23:33
vfw[Saint_]:sudo  dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-extra-3.16.0-24-generic23:33
kojakzitooh ok, im trying to install this package: apache2-prefork-dev23:33
vfw[Saint_]: uptime  (What does that tell you?)23:34
[Saint_]vfw: exactly what should happen in this case happens there - "/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: linux-image-extra-3.16.0-24-generic is broken or not fully installed"23:34
gackojakzito: from where though? the version provided in the 12.04 repo would be dependent on 2.2, because that's what ships23:34
k1lkojakzito: yes, but the PPA (or other stuff you installed not form the official ubuntu repo) doesnt like that23:34
vfw[Saint_]: uptime  (What does that tell you?)23:34
[Saint_]...wait? What? Why the hell is uptime relevant?23:34
gackojakzito: do you have a PPA enabled? or have you downloaded a .deb?23:34
* [Saint_] is beggining to suspect he shouldn't be taking some of this advice too seriously23:34
vfw[Saint_]: Ok, I'm done.  You are on your own.23:34
kojakzitoi havent downloaded any .deb23:35
lagboxtheir wiki seems to say ... in most cases23:35
gackojakzito: so how are you trying to install that package?23:35
k1lkojakzito: PPAs?23:35
kojakzitothats the only thing i did, sudo apt-get install apache2 apache2-prefork-dev23:35
kojakzitoi havent setup any PPA or anythign23:35
gackojakzito: what does "apt-cache policy apache2-prefork-dev" tell you?23:35
[Saint_]Jesus. Its just not safe to assume people know what they're talking about anymore is it. Question it, and get a rage quit. Hilarious.23:36
lagboxRobinHood2015, i am so crazy about my boot partition i leave it as ext223:36
lagboxto make sure any version of almost any bootable media i have can use it if needed23:36

gacweird. can't imagine why the 2.2 version is depending on apache 2.423:38
* [Saint_] will have another stab at this after he puts this batch of disks through the shredder23:38
celroc[Saint_]: Mind if I take a shot in the dark at helping you?23:38
lagboxglitch in the matrix23:38
[Saint_]celroc: if you're confident, I don't mind at all.23:39
[Saint_]I couldn;t care about this installation in the slightest.23:39
[Saint_]Its more for the sake of curiosity23:39
celroc[Saint_]: Have you tried running "sudo dpkg --configure -a"? That's one way to fix broken apt-get messes sometimes23:39
k1lkojakzito: run a "sudo apt-get update"23:40
[Saint_]celroc: that fails with the same error(s), as one would expect.23:40
k1l"please put that in a pastebin then23:40
[Saint_]The root issue seems to revolve around "grub-probe: error: not a directory."23:41
k1l[Saint_]: i think its a grub  error somewhere like i said before23:41
[Saint_]And for the life of me I cannot see a way out from this.23:41
* [Saint_] nods23:41
celroc[Saint_]: I don't suppose you'd mind checking /boot and seeing if it has a grub and/or a grub2 folder, too?  Maybe it's looking for them, but they don't exist for some reason23:42
kojakzitok1l: here tit is http://pastebin.com/Z9fb5HLR23:42
[Saint_]celroc: http://pastebin.com/PVfQ1FUc23:42
k1lkojakzito: well, you got saucy repos in your sources.list23:43
k1lkojakzito: they cause the mess.23:43
gackojakzito: i was typing what ^^ said :)23:43
celroc[Saint_]: Well, if you want to try something for the fun of it, maybe run "sudo mkdir /boot/grub2" and see if that somehow fixes the error23:43
emacerI created a launcher for Unity which brings up a terminal application.  When the application exits, I want the terminal to close, but it doesn't.  Anyone know how to fix that?23:43
gacalso, potentially (but less likely), backports23:43
kojakzitok1l: should I comment them out from sources.list and try again?23:44
k1lkojakzito: you should remove them totally and never put them on again23:44
Ben64kojakzito: it is quite possible you've already broken a lot by having them in there23:44
kojakzitowow ur scaring me23:44
kojakzitolet me do that immediately23:45
[Saint_]celroc: same error23:45
kojakzitoso whatever saucy goes out23:45
[Saint_]The issue seems to revolve around my dual-boot setup that has worked fine for several years...23:45
celroc[Saint_]: Sorry if you already tried this, but have you ran sudo update-grub already, too?23:45
k1lmixing repos is a very bad thing. you are lucky if that issue is the only thing that was broken. apt will install the newest version of a package it could find. and in you case its possible that halfe your system thinks its saucy now.23:45
kojakzitook i just removed the saucy repo23:46
[Saint_]celroc: I have, that's what gives the error: grub-probe: error: not a directory23:46
kojakzitotrying again23:46
Ben64[Saint_]: is it a weird setup? did you install grub in some non standard way?23:46
k1l[Saint_]: what dualboot setup? did you check /boot? ls -al to see the permissions?23:46
[Saint_]Ben64: Install Windows; Install Ubuntu; done.23:47
[Saint_]Defaults for all.23:47
FilthyMacNastyeradicate all ntfs partitions and go from there23:47

Ben64[Saint_]: gpt? efi?23:48
lonewulf85Can some one help me getting my Bluetooth card working?23:48
celroc[Saint_]: Not to keep bothering you, but I'm wondering if maybe something's funny with the /boot/grub/ folder.  Can you run "sudo ls -ld /boot/grub" and tell me if its a symlink for some reason?  I remember that happened to me once a long time ago23:51
[Saint_]drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Oct 30 12:44 /boot/grub23:51
celroc[Saint_]: Alright, that looks good.  Hmph.23:52
lonewulf85Please bluetooth is Ralink corp. RT3290 Bluetooth and I cannot get it to work.23:53
=== alpha is now known as owtf
=== owtf is now known as samuelnajdowski
lagboxlonewulf85, you may have to build the driver for it23:54
gaclonewulf85: given that that chipset appears to be in several Ubuntu certified laptops, i'd be surprised if it were actually broken23:54
Guest28273question for ubuntu server version 14 is there anyway I can run it live and not have to partition my HD the desktop version runs well live I just wanted to compare the differences but if not I can always take the cd/dvd and uses a VM . Other thing I noticed is they only make the server version x64 no x86 version for download not that it seems like a problem one should beable to menuconfig the ARCH or compile it from x64 arch to x823:55
Guest282736 shouldn't be that hard23:55
[Saint_]Hmmmm....I "fixed" it, by purging grub.23:55
[Saint_]Now, how do I go about repairing my grub install?23:55
Guest28273This question I posted is useless but I felt like talking23:55
lonewulf85gac, I do not think it is broken, when I swap my drive for Windows 8.1 it works in Windows just not in Ubuntu 14.0423:55
k1l[Saint_]: hmm. reinstall the grub package?23:55
bazhangGuest28273, try #ubuntu-server23:55
celroc[Saint_]: Does sudo apt-get upgrade work now, by the way?23:56
gaclonewulf85: but how is it "not working"?23:56
kojakzitook it worked but now23:56
kojakzitoi totally deleted /etc/apache223:56
kojakzitoafter doing apt-get purge apache2, and the nreinstalling it23:56
kojakzitoit does not recreate that folder23:56
kojakzitowhat can I do?23:56
lonewulf85gac, I cannot get it to turn on or anything.23:56
gaclonewulf85: so you don't have a bluetooth icon near the clock?23:56
lonewulf85gac, nope23:57
SuperLagTell me I'm not crazy... and that there *is* a GUI tool for gdisk. I can't remember what the name is, and "apt-cache search gdisk" doesn't reveal anything telling.23:57
gaclonewulf85: is there a hardware switch/software hotkey for it?23:57
celrocSuperLag: Would gparted be what you're looking for?23:57
lagboxgparted ?23:57
gackojakzito: you might find that you need to purge apache2* (to get rid of apache-2.4-common, or other similarly named packages)23:58
lonewulf85gac, there is one that works for both my wifi and my bluetooth but my bluetooth does not come on.23:58
SuperLagcelroc: lagbox: YES! Thank you for confirming I am not crazy. :D23:58
celrocEither that, or we're both crazy, too ;-)23:58
lagboxlonewulf85, have we even confirmed if there is a driver loaded at all ?23:59
kojakzitothank you gac !23:59
