daftykinsowen1: do you see how the log files differ on line 129 in the second?00:00
daftykinsowen1: i don't really follow your description of the events, but if it's playing up in i3 and not unity, i don't know what to say. i have practically zero experience with desktop use00:01
wpd_The ROS stuff has been around for a while, and I haven't had any problems with it.  This has just shown up since Installed some development tools from NVIDIA.  But I can't figure out what that installer did to me.00:01
mongooseIs anyone in here familiar with LilyPond?00:01
daftykinswpd_: grep each of those leading files for 'arm' (i.e. the .list )00:02
wpd_daftykins: None of them list arm.00:03
wpd_That's why I'm so confused :-)00:03
daftykinswpd_: nice... so this funky script you said you ran... what was it?00:03
Bashing-omwpd_: A side note, not a good thing to mix release repo's ; " gstreamer-developers-ppa-precise.list " might see if 'gsteamer' offers support for trusty .00:03
wpd_It was an installer from Nvidia for their embedded arm development board.00:03
Finetundraso, ubuntu doesn't see a whole Gigabyte of my ram. why?00:04
wpd_Hence the reason I blame them. :-)00:04
daftykinscheck said script to see what it did, then00:04

Finetundradaftykins, could you explain?00:09
daftykinsFinetundra: you're running a 32-bit kernel. you need to be running 64-bit.00:09

EiriksHDDhello, can someone help me, my ubuntu desktop has frozen, but I still have the capability to do some things, can someone give me some sort of kill command to force the thing to reset?00:12
k1lFinetundra: what ubuntu is that? is that a saucy install?00:12
Finetundrak1l, yes00:12
ubottuUbuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) was the 19th release of Ubuntu. Support ended on July 17th, 2014. See !eol, !upgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/saucy00:12
daftykinsFinetundra: you shouldn't be using that.00:13
k1lFinetundra: that is vulnerable since its end of life. you need to upgrade00:13

Stmeter_Any ideas?00:14
k1lFinetundra: upgrade are automated tested. so if you dont have lots of 3rd party stuff they will work just fine00:14
Finetundrak1l, define lots00:15
daftykinsviejotren: well you cant to copy remotely right? you can tar the folder then scp it00:15
Bashing-omEiriksHDD: Gracefull shutdown: try: alt+ZSysRg+ r+s+e+i+u+b .00:15
k1lFinetundra: there is no option to not upgrade00:15
Finetundrak1l, understood00:16
k1lFinetundra: either you install a LTS and stay there for 5 years or you have to upgrade all 6 months.00:16
daftykinsStmeter_: messing about as root isn't wise. is the daemon running? perhaps it isn't00:17
k1lFinetundra: and if you cant overview what 3rd party stuff you got installed :/00:17
user1why did i get failed to install applications on xbuntu and try them manually00:17
Finetundrak1l, what do you mean?00:17
Stmeter_daftykins: Just trying to debug. I'm aware of the risks of root. Once I run "service mysql start" it stays up and then crashes.00:17
EiriksHDDwhat is ZSysRg?00:17
daftykinsStmeter_: logs time then00:17
daftykinsuser1: i wasn't watching over your shoulder during install, you'll need to either reboot and see the message again or ignore it. likely it's just talking about language packs00:18
viejotrendaftykins: I don't have enough free space to tar the entire directory, is there any other way?00:18
Bashing-omEiriksHDD: Sorry; typo - should be the SysRq key .00:18
EiriksHDDso like windows key?00:18
daftykinsviejotren: yeah, recursively scp the directory.00:18
user1on install said bout formatting the parition bit and just clicked continue00:18
k1lFinetundra: if you have that much 3rd party stuff that you dont know how much it is and what it does you should prbably try a clean install on 14.0400:19

iggymydogdaftykins: im willing to do anything to get this dam comoputer to work00:26
Finetundradaftykins, ok, ok. i'm running the update. what's a PAE kernel and how is it different than what i already have00:26
daftykinsiggymydog: i don't understand how i can be any clearer than "upgrade to a supported release" - only 12.04.5, 14.04 and 14.10 are supported right now.00:26
iggymydogdaftykins: first off how to i find out my version00:26
VanceXiggymydog: Why then are you running such an old release?00:26
daftykinsiggymydog: you just told me 13.x, did you forget already?00:27
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info00:27
daftykinsFinetundra: ^00:27
bubbasauresiggymydog, run 'lsb_release -a" for version without the '00:27

Finetundradaftykins, upgrade. sorry00:28
iggymydogVanceX: can you try to offer me some sort of help?00:29
k1ldaftykins: after the upgrade is done make sure to have "linux-generic" installed.00:29
bubbasauresiggymydog, Lets get you to a supported release 14.04 has 5 years support.00:29
k1lFinetundra:  after the upgrade is done make sure to have "linux-generic" installed.00:29
k1ldaftykins: tabfail :)00:29
Finetundrak1l, how would i check that?00:29
Bashing-omiggymydog: It is simple, we need to know that you are on a current release, or get you upgraded . ^^ lsb_release -a will tell .00:30
VanceXiggymydog: Understood and I empathize yet, to must understand for questions to be answered here... You must be running something more current. You need to upgrade or do a fresh install.00:30
k1lFinetundra: install it with apt-get install00:30
iggymydogbubbasaures: thank you!!!!00:30
Finetundrak1l, gotcha00:30

iggymydogBashing-om: im running 13.0400:31

bpromptiggymydog:  but can't hurt getting 14.04 lts00:32
bubbasauresiggymydog, Thanks, theoretically you can go to 13.10 than 14.04, however it takes time, or do a fresh install, what seems best for you? The update does have it's perils back up anything you need as alwyas.00:33

somsipcolifato: check your SMTP login details in your default F2B action, check your SMTP server is running correctly01:56
colifatosomsip: the server is running... smtp no problems.. fail2ban don't ban01:57
somsipcolifato: the action script can't complete because SMTP is failing, so fix that problem01:57
colifatosomsip do u say that i need to see mail.log ?01:59
bleezyhow is everyone ?01:59
Finetundrahow do you change the splash screen?01:59
user1how do i find out what that update did and what version im on02:00
somsipcolifato: the actions F2B takes are defined in /etc/fail2ban/actions.d In your jail.local you will define which action you want to use. If that action sends an email whenever a ban is set, and that email cannot be sent because the SMTP auth details are not correctly set in the action, it may cause problems. Check your SMTP auth details in your actions02:00

somsipcolifato: so there are bans. If you're going to be vague, it'll be painful to help you. If you clearly state your problem, we may get it sorted quickly. Where did you get the sasl filter from?02:07
bleezypatience lol been here 2 days02:07
ulkeshuser1: if you run cat /etc/lsb-release in a terminal you'll see what version you currently have installed (assuming this is what you're requesting)02:07

amjamThanks for your help earlier guys, my girlfriend is currently using Ubuntu on her Dell Inspiron laptop now. :)02:08
bleezysomsip, well you up for the task02:08
bleezysomsip, ive posted all kind of stuff on here02:08

bleezysomeara, i have a geforce 6200 le . non of the drivers in additional driver work correctly. i was trying to update driver02:09
Finetundrauser1, ok, you're good02:09
ulkeshuser1: you're up to date for the current LTS release then02:10
user1ok thank u02:10
colifatosomsip : http://tny.cz/dbdb7fb502:10
Finetundrano if you'll excuse me i'll be finishing my update02:10
user1next how can i get the res02:10
colifatothese is mi sasl.conf02:10
ulkeshuser1: the "res"?  what specifically are you looking for?  easiest method of updating is:  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade (it will then show you all the packages the package manager sees needing updates)02:11
bleezysomsip,  i have a geforce 6200 le . none of the drivers in additional driver work correctly. i was trying to update driver02:11
somsipcolifato: where did you get this? Does it work with fail2ban-regex (to test it)? Is it right for the version of F2B you are using as the format changed recently02:11
somsipbleezy: I use standard drivers with my nvidia and have never had a problem. I don't have any troubleshooting experience, so you need someone else to help you02:12
user1i run it in live mode got 1024x768 and installed xubuntu now 800x600 and everythings massive02:12
colifatonow i copy the regex02:12
bleezyuser1, i had that problem but worse02:12
user1no its 640x480 now02:12
ulkeshuser1: most likely you're simply needing the proper graphics driver...what video card do you have?02:12
LanDihey guys, I want to buy a GeForce GTX 750... there is one with a nice price here... but it's just 1GB.... will it be a problem ?02:13
bleezyuser1, good luck ive been trying for 2 days solid02:13
user1ok here the hard part sis02:13
somsipLanDi: what will you use it for? Heavy demand games or just desktop use?02:13
colifatothis is the regex02:13
bleezyi got stuck at 640x480 could do a thing02:13
user1i run xbuntu in live mode got good res 1024x768 and now installed 640x48002:14
LanDisomsip: both, I love games but not very heavy ones02:14
bleezyuser its a driver issue02:14
somsipcolifato: and is your jail for sasl set up correctly?02:14

somsipLanDi: you may need to be directed by the min spec of the games you want to play then02:15
Finetundrauser1, you aren't on a vm by chance are you?02:15
ulkeshuser1: it's possible the live cd had some kernel options or other drivers running that helped and upon install those did not get loaded...what video card do you have?  you can see all your hardware using the command lspci02:15
LanDisomsip: ok02:15

user1vid card sis, worked great on live mode02:16
colifatosomsip: these is that i don't know :D02:16
bleezyi have a nvidia card still suck02:16
somsipHerroWorlds: someone is trying to get a page on your site. If you have an external IP this will happen. Bots will hit admin pages and possible backdoors looking for a vulnerability02:17
somsipcolifato: paste it02:17
HerroWorldssomsip: it is not a website though, it is a server script02:17
somsipHerroWorlds: you just pasteed an HTTP request.02:18
HerroWorldsso that command was searching for all http pages on my site?02:18
somsipHerroWorlds: no, it's trying to GET /manager/html02:18
bbryanthey, I've got a problem switching to chromium as my default browser... chromium thinks it's my default browser, but external links are still launching into firefox02:18
ulkeshuser1: potentially this may help (assuming it's the right site for the chipset)...I see an xorg driver (though I hope it's not out of date for your version of X):  http://w3.sis.com/download/download_step2.php?id=155961&country=USA&Image791.x=60&Image791.y=1502:18
HerroWorldswhich should not exist because the directory does not exist on my server?02:18
bbryantwhy would that happen?02:18
user1i went back to xp earlier and res was super vga 1600x120002:19
bleezyNvidia driver install anyone have a clue ?02:19
bbryantbleezy: yea, i'm sure many people are experienced with that02:19
bbryantcan you flesh out a more detailed question?02:19
somsipHerroWorlds: if it doesn't exist, then the request will get nothing back. Maybe a 404 error if an HTTP server is running on that port02:19
ulkeshuser1: it's certainly a driver issue and i'm not familiar with that chipset enough to be of further help (my apologies)... i hope that link helps02:19
colifatothis is my jail.conf02:19
HerroWorldssomsip: its a custom protocol02:19
bleezybbryant, how do update my driver02:20
Bashing-omuser1: Do: sudo lshw -C display l if it is " product: 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter ", then you are looking at installing Lubuntu and making up a Xorg.conf file.  ( unity = 3D amd that card does not support 3D ).02:20
bbryantbleezy: first, why do you want to do that?f02:20
colifatothis my sasl.conf: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9323521/02:20
bubbasauresbbryant, The settings app, details-default02:20
somsipcolifato: you have a filter decalred, and a failregex. IIRC the failregex will override the filter. So you may want to remove that02:20
user1ok bash ill look give us a min not the quickest02:21
colifatowhere i need remove? in the jail.conf ?02:21
bbryantbubbasaures: you're awesome, thank you02:21
=== BUSY2 is now known as BUSY
ulkeshuser1: that's true, what Bashing-om says, it could also be an xorg conf issue (where you would potentially have to define the various resolutions/etc)02:21
bbryantI'll stick around to answer smoe questions to pay it forward02:21
somsipHerroWorlds: This is way off topic for this channel. It's not clear what your actual problem is, so I'm not sure i can comment more02:21
bleezybbryant, i cant play a game and more important screen goes crazy when switching windows and alot more02:21
somsipcolifato: in jail.local, under the [sasl] section, remove the failregex02:21
HerroWorldssomsip: sorry it was just something that popped up on my ubuntu server, i was not suure where else to ask02:22
colifatorestart fail2ban ... ok02:23
colifatonow? regex?02:23

somsipcolifato: check if it works02:25
colifatohow? waiting?02:25
somsipcolifato: trigger a ban02:25
Bashing-omuser1: OK for xubuntu, what specific 'SIS' card (from lshw output) are you running ?02:26
somsipcolifato: by taking action that causes the entry matched by the regex to be added to the log02:26
bleezyE: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?02:27

daftykinsFinetundra: are you not familiar with dealing with kernels?02:40
Finetundradaftykins, this would be the first time02:40

bbryantso I'm having troubel with things opening in firefox even though the setting in settings->details->defaults says chromium02:40
bbryantany idea why that would be the case?02:40

bbryantI started this process by going to chrome's settings and setting it as the default browser02:41

bbryantfor good measure02:41
daftykinswell that's all i've got.02:42
bbryantlet's see what happens when I get rid of firefox02:42
bbryantI don't want it anyway02:42
zykotick9bbryant: from a terminal try "sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser" and confirm it's set to chromium, then do "sudo update-alternatives --config gnome-www-browser" and verify that is also set to chromium.  /me isn't a fan of chromium, and less a fan of chrome.  best of luck.02:43
bbryantthere we go02:44
bbryantok, I can try taht02:44
bbryantbut uninstalling firefox seemd to fix it02:44
basil1xThere's always Rekonq. ;)02:44
daftykinsbbryant: not fix, avoid.02:44
basil1xor PaleMoon, or Midori02:45
bbryantzykotick9: I'll keep that approach in mind02:45
bbryantfor whenever I install another browser02:45
bbryantand have the problem again02:45
zykotick9bbryant: ahhh, if you used apt-get to uninstall firefox, you may be in for problems down the road!  it probably breaks gnome/unity/whatever metapackages...02:45
user1thanks read it still dont understand it02:45
bbryantok then time to reinstall!02:45
Finetundradaftykins, doesn't show the new kernel02:45
daftykinsFinetundra: what did the installation put on?02:46
Finetundradaftykins, said that it put this one on:
bbryantzykotick9: ok, so I reinstalled it and verified that update-alternatives is correct for both x-www... and gnome-www...02:47

Finetundradaftykins, in fact if i understand what EFI is, i don't even own a machine with EFI02:54
Bashing-omuser1: All they are saying is that you will have to make up an appropriate '/etc/X11/Xorg.conf' ( there is another alternative that might work easier I am hunting for it mow ) .02:54

k2gremlinOk so somehow my server isnt working right anymore.... it can ping out to the world but it can ping a PC on my own LAN. What gives?03:23
daftykinsk2gremlin: i think you typo'd a logic word in there somewhere :)03:23
k2gremlindaftykins, correct lol! It can ping out to world but CAN'T ping LAN lol03:24
k2gremlinmore specifically just 1 PC it cant ping.. narrowing it down03:24
k2gremlinbut it can't ping the PC I am using right now. So I know this PC has connectivity lol03:24
daftykinsare you sure it responds to ping?03:25
Bashing-omuser1: do: touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/use-vesa.conf l then open the file in the text editor , copy and paste what the link provides for content , save the file, reboot to see the effect. ( make sure /etc/X11/Xorg.conf does not exist as they will conflict ) .03:25
k2gremlinThey are on the same network.03:25
daftykinswhat about pinging the router...03:25
k2gremlinYes FROM this PC to the server I can ping. but from the server back to this PC it can't ping03:25
k2gremlinbut server can ping other devices on the LAN and has reachability to the web03:26

Finetundrastill there03:31
k2gremlinim going to shoot this thing lol03:31
w23rdstDon't shoot it.03:32
daftykinsFinetundra: i think it's game over then, your hardware is just too old... it's already running with a PAE kernel and reports fine, it just doesn't seem to echo in free -m.03:32
Bashing-omuser1: Then you have not "touched" it .. can also make a new rile in the file manager and "save" it with the correct path (/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d) and name (use-vesa.conf) . Whichever means you prefer to use .03:32

BorysHi. Which software I should use on remote vps to broadcast rtp audio over internet from my local pc to few mobile devices on android/ios? I need it for my Fire Departament. I know that I can do it with Unreal Media server, but its windows-only.04:56
lotuspsychjejosePHPagoda: maybe its game itself, instead of the touch recognizing04:56
josePHPagodait is04:56
josePHPagodawhich is why I was hoping there was a way that it could be configured to just send mouse click events04:56
lotuspsychjejosePHPagoda: wich game is this?04:56
josePHPagodaany game using sdl04:57
noideaHow can I change the permissions of all directories within a directory and separately change permissions on all files within the same directory?04:57

BorysNo, I will now04:58
lotuspsychjejosePHPagoda: not really your case but they might be able to help04:58

bbryantBorys: is RTP audio a part of a SIP call ?05:00
daftykinsbbryant: they both end in protocol, which means they're entirely different things05:01
josePHPagodalotuspsychje: i looked through most of those, nothing really useful unfortunately05:01
lotuspsychjejosePHPagoda: bummer :p05:01
Borysbbryant: no, I have a radio transceiver plug into line in on my local, and I need to broadcast it for mobile devices. Now I use icecast/darkice but I need something in real time, or about 2s delay, now I get 5-10s delay with icecast05:02
bbryantdaftykins: they are, but SIP is just a signaling protocol which transmits the audio/video of a call through RTP05:02
bbryantthey are related05:02
bbryantand knowing which would help me to recommend different software05:03
daftykinsbbryant: that's true i guess anything can be a session really.05:03
daftykinsBorys: are you trying to make some cheap alternative to having radios for a fire brigade crew? :P05:03
BorysSo I think about rtp but I dont know which software I can use for it. I think I can encode audio from line in with ffmpeg, and transmit it to vps with high UL bandwith, and connect from mobile to vps to hear my transceiver05:03
Borysexatly :)05:04
bbryantthose things really need to be reliable05:04
bbryantdo you think something you hack together will be?05:04
daftykinsfirst thing to go in an emergency: mobile phone reception05:04
bbryantno kidding05:04
bbryantrule 1 of war is go for the communications05:05
basil1xLast thing:  the 50-year-old Motorola pole speaker.05:05
bbryantso yea, I don't think this is a good idea05:06
BorysSo how can I do it?05:06
daftykinsyou can't involve mobile phone data connections and communication hacks with emergency services05:07
daftykinsthat's just... quite frankly immoral05:07
bbryantyea, I refuse to help you do something like that05:07
BorysBut it amateur fire departament05:07
bbryantreal fires though05:08
Borysand I cant get everywhere my radio transceiver05:08
daftykinsBorys: what's in place right now?05:08
daftykinssurely the radio stays at the HQ05:08
Borysyup, but when fire comes, I get sms that I have to go to HQ05:09
bbryantand I assume you pick up a radio there05:09
bbryantso what do you do now05:09
BorysWe have two FD - amateur and professional05:09
BorysIm amateur, so when proffessional need backup, they send us sms and run siren so I come to my ameteur HQ05:10
Borysdress up and go05:10
BorysI can listen to radio in HQ, or get it to home05:10
bbryantwhy aren't you given radios?05:11
bbryantI assume the professinoals have them05:11
daftykinsi guess that's where the amateur part comes in05:11
daftykinsmore volunteering05:11
Boryssorry, my english is little poor05:11
bbryantyour english seems fine05:11
bbryantI didn't notice a problem05:12
Borysso with broadcasting radio by net, I can listen to my channel and know what going up before professionals run up siren05:12
BorysSo when I hear that something is going up in my area I can go to my HQ and be ready when siren run05:13
BorysSo I can save some much time05:13
daftykinsi think that would be jumping the gun on the decision of the professionals to involve your crew05:14
Borysanyway, I do it now with icecast and its working, one think I want its less delay05:15
Borysso, could you help me with this, guys?05:15
bbryantok, so why do you think you can reduce delay with a new solution?05:16
bbryantwhat is being done inefficiently now, in your mind?05:16

ahmadBen64: thanks, will try with another USB or cd07:50
bbryantmiandonmenmian: yea, if you want the path to be modified each time your shell starts you have to manually make that happen07:52
bbryantmodifying the variable in one session does not modify it for others07:52
miandonmenmianbbryant: what i was trying to do, is to add a /bin folder on my /home partition and add it to my PATH, not installing modules there, i know this is not good, just trying to get it this way07:53

miandonmenmianon my /etc/profile07:54
miandonmenmianbut did not work well07:54

miandonmenmianwhat are the key system paths?07:54
miandonmenmian export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=   ?07:54
bbryantdon't do it that way at all07:54

ikoniabbryant: that won't work07:55
ikoniahis path is messed up07:55
zykotick9miandonmenmian: fyi, if you create ~/bin and log out and back in, by default (perhaps you've changed something?) it'll be in your PATH07:55
ikoniaso it will just append a messed up path07:55
bbryantoh right07:55

bbryantyou don't have to repeat yourself07:55
mdogeyes, there maybe kids here07:55
ikoniamiandonmenmian: log out and back in - then do as bbryant suggested with PATH=/home/user/bin:$PATH07:56
ikoniamiandonmenmian: you'll probably find that works fine07:56
Ben64if ~/bin exists it is automagically added to PATH07:56
ikoniamiandonmenmian: with reference to variables like ld_library_path, we'll need to know the apps07:56
miandonmenmianecho $PATH gives this /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin07:57

ikoniamiandonmenmian: you know it's changed, but you don't know if it's changed ?07:59

miandonmenmianikonia: just wondering. #reset would not be same as log out?08:00

miandonmenmianwell, thanks a bunch. I'm getting a much better idea now08:05
miandonmenmianim still curious how ld_library_path works08:05
miandonmenmiani thought the binaries would be already linked, so not sure why need a library path08:05
ikoniamiandonmenmian: you shouldn't need to worry about it08:05
ikoniabut some minor things you do - hence why I keep asking you for specific real life problem, rather than made up examples08:06
miandonmenmianikonia, i'm having issues with a couple of them, for instance vim08:09
miandonmenmianvi is found well, vim was not. now seems to be fixed08:09
miandonmenmianhowever, there is a problem with the link for one of the binary copies, just trying to figure out whats the problem08:10
bbryantok, how are you modifying the path right now?08:10
bbryantcould you show me that line of code?08:10

PlukHello, I am having some difficulty logging into Ubuntu after upgrading from Ubuntu 12 to Ubuntu 14, on a UEFI system. Is anyone here willing and able to help me? I have my pastecode from Boot Repair, it shows a lot of errors.08:29
ash`If you need it to run in the background, one way is to press CTRL + Z which will suspend the process and then run "bg" a command - this will run it in the background :)08:29
ash`PoNuts: ^08:29
PoNutsBut ssh is to connect to one server.. Seveas did good search and I found the pssh which seeams to do the task txh08:29
PoNutsI guess (need to do more RTFM) that it connect to a list of your servers and run the commands similtanously like checking uptime08:30
ash`PoNuts: mmk. if it solves your problem - i would create a shell script but you know what problem you are solving :)08:31
SeveasPoNuts: pssh works too, but if you frequently need to run things on many machines, you really should look at salt.08:31
PoNutsThx ash nice08:31

PlukHas anyone else here had experience with trying to log in to Ubuntu and getting "Failed to start session" instead of logging in?08:33
ikoniaPluk: what is the session it's referencing08:34
Pluk@ikonia: I am unsure what you mean, I am trying to log into my account after booting into Ubuntu, and I get the message "Failed to start session". If I mistype my password it says "Incorrect Password" so I know it's not a password problem.08:35
PlukI did accidentally remove python (sudo apt-get remove python) before upgrading, and I've read since that that causes really, really bad things in Ubuntu08:36
ikoniaPluk yes, that will cause a lot of problems08:37
White_Catmaybe it will mayeb it wont08:37
ikoniaPluk: are you trying to login to the gui environment08:37
Pluk@ikonia: Yes, to the gui. When I try tty, it asks for my username and password. I have no idea what my username is though, and I have tried pretty much every username I have ever used anywhere.08:38
ikoniaPluk: go to the command line, and re-install python/check the X start up logs08:39
EriC^Pluk: hold shift while the pc boots08:40
ikoniaPluk: you must know your username - as you are telling me you are trying to login and it's giving you the failed to start session08:40
ikoniaPluk: so if you are logging in and getting that error - you known your username08:40
EriC^press e over the ubuntu entry, add init=/bin/bash to the end of the kernel line ( Linux vmlinuz... )08:40
PlukHow do I go to the command line without logging in? I only know how to use the terminal, but ctrl+shift+t doesn't work. Eric, is that what shift does while booting?08:41
EriC^Pluk: ikonia is right, your username is the one showing in lightdm if that's what you're using08:42
=== CyberJacob|Away is now known as CyberJacob
PlukI will try starting with bash, and then re-installing python from there. I'll report back when I know more, thanks for your help so far! :D08:43

EriC^what do you mean starting with bash?08:43
PlukOh, I missed some08:43
Plukyes alright08:43
EriC^the init=/bin/bash ?08:43
PlukUh, I mean adding init=/bin/bash to the boot entry08:44
EriC^if you do that, press ctrl+x to execute it, or f1008:44
EriC^when you get a root prompt you need to remount rw08:44
ikoniayou don't need all that08:44
ikoniajust use the recovery shell08:44
ikoniano need to change the init08:44
EriC^so type mount -o remount,rw /08:44
ikoniaor just boot and interupt the X startup08:44
PlukAlso, when I try to login to Ubuntu, it only asks for a password, not a username. For my username is just shows my full name with spaces and special symbols etc, which proved not to be a username I can use in tty08:45
EriC^ikonia: the recovery shell asks for the password, but what do you mean by interrupting X?08:45
ikoniathe recovery shell won't ask for a password unless you've set the root password08:45
PlukI'm sorry, but I'm uncertain by what you mean with either recovery shell or interrupting X08:46
EriC^ikonia: it asks here, although i've not08:46
EriC^i put my user's pass and it gives me a prompt08:46
PlukI think I know my root password though08:46
PlukShall I try in recovery mode using shift, first?08:47
PlukAlright, I'll be back after I've tried that. Thanks!08:47
EriC^if it says something like read only, press on enable networking08:47
EriC^it will remount as rw08:47

JBudzNixi am currently running linuxlite on my netbook. i have previously ran windows 7.  I have found that almost regardless of OS that youtube videos struggle on netbook.09:31
JBudzNixis there any lightweight distributions that excel in particular with youtube?09:31
cfhowlettJBudzNix, course not.  distro = distro with different apps and looks.  what MIGHT be different are the default codecs.  you DID install restricted extras ... right?09:35
=== adellam_ is now known as adellam
JBudzNixi will say no because i  dont recall seeing that during install.09:36

JBudzNixindeed. what i find strange though is that i can run HD videos fine within VLC (avi, mkv, etc)09:37

JBudzNixokay sure. i understand the point you are making. however, im just merely looking for a bit of insight into some other lightweight options that might give me a bit better flash performance.09:40
JBudzNixyou feel as though lubuntu might give me a bit better resource allowance?09:41
cfhowlettJBudzNix, lubuntu is optimized for legacy and low-specification hardware so ... netbook?09:42
JBudzNixyep. i understand that. however, ive seen that there is at least 20 distributions that are lightweight and 'tailored' to older systems / netbooks.09:43

Kyoshiro`hey, I heard ubuntu decided to follow debian on systemd but it was a bit forced by "upstream" change to systemd, is it true ? are projects like devuan an alternative ?11:02
=== havingFun is now known as xrosnight
ikoniaKyoshiro`: ubuntu will move to systemd within the next few releases,11:03
Kyoshiro`ok ^^11:03
metaspikeubuntu is derived from debian, so it's pretty much unavoidable11:05
Kyoshiro`yeah it's understandable, but since there are projects "forking" debian to remove systemd maybe it could be a way to avoid it :)11:05
ikoniaKyoshiro`: none of that is anything to do with ubuntu though11:06

blackyboycfhowlett: i'm trying in ubuntu server only11:07
ikoniablackyboy: what's the actual problem11:07
vltHello. It’s 2014 – so what package do I want to use for basic video editing? I have several different sources (1280p/720p h.264, DV ...), want to create (sub)titles and edit audio levels. Any idea?11:07
cfhowlettblackyboy, thus my suggestion to ask the server channel but see ikonia ...11:07
cfhowlettvlt, so many options ... openshot is a decent starting point11:08
seriousscandinavvlt: I have used openshot for editing video. Don't do it a lot, but it seems to work.11:08
cfhowlettvlt, for subtitles, install subtitle editor11:08
blackyboyikonia: i have iptables and nfs can't mount while the iptables running , if i flush i can get the nfs share by running showmount -e xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx11:08
vltcfhowlett: Thank you :-)11:08
el3Hello, I got an apple core storage partition I cannot boot on. So I try the ubuntu live usb, and see if I can mount it and backup the files. Any here got experience with this?11:08
vltseriousscandinav: You too.11:09
ikoniablackyboy: so iptables is blocking traffic then11:09
ikoniablackyboy: document what ports/protocols nfs needs, then map it to your iptables rules11:09
cfhowlettvlt, happy to help.  make it easy: sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-video and see #ubuntustudio11:09
ikoniablackyboy: you'll soon find the conflict11:09
blackyboyikonia: yes... And  while i dont want to use the nfs default ports11:09
ikoniablackyboy: ok, so you know the ports you need then11:09
ikoniablackyboy: so you should be able to find the conflict11:10
ikoniablackyboy: I suspect you've failed to configure NFS / associated services to use different ports11:10
ikoniablackyboy: so they will probably still be running on the default ports11:10
ikoniachanging the NFS ports is not something that is recommended.11:10
ikoniaI see no value in doing that11:10
blackyboyyes currently by default it use 111 and 204911:10
metaspikeel3, you probably need hfs packages, then mount -t hfs /dev/sdx /mnt/meh11:10
metaspikebut im guessing.11:11

blackyboyikonia: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?DocLang=en&docId=mmr_kc-0110637&docLocale=en_US  i have followed this documentation to change the default port to some other port.11:14
ikoniablackyboy: why are you changing the default ports ?11:15
EriC^^b100s: ok, i'd recommend cat /var/log/apt/history.log11:16
blackyboyikonia: by default it will change the random ports11:16
el3metaspike, but it should also be hfs11:16
EriC^^b100s: it will mention the command run and the installed packages, use zcat /var/log/apt/history.log.1.gz if history.log is empty11:16
ikoniablackyboy: thats only portmapper11:16
ikoniaand that will feed into a port range11:16
blackyboyoh i see11:17
ikoniablackyboy: I don't get what you are actually having as a problem11:17
ikoniablackyboy: you have configured nfs to use specific ports11:17
ikoniaconfigure those tcp/udp ports on your firewall11:17
ikoniaif it doesn't work - look for conflicts11:17

khussein78when do unity --replace , it stuck at compiz (core) starting plugin : session13:12
khussein78any ideas13:12
metaspikeOsenpai, well you can try it, report back if it works I guess...13:12
EriC^^khussein78: unity --replace is deprecated i think13:12
supermetaspike :Its all fine except it hangs sometime.Like when copying.Especially when scripts are working on Webpages.13:12
Osenpaimetaspike, Okay, I will try here, thanks for the help13:12
EriC^^khussein78: are you trying to reset unity?13:12
khussein78EriC^^,  yes13:13
EriC^^khussein78: type setsid unity13:13
khussein78EriC^^,  I tried many options reinstalling unity13:13
EriC^^khussein78: what's the problem?13:13
khussein78EriC^^,  after installing latest updates unity not working, no desktop after enter username and password13:14
metaspikesuper, hangs? you could memtest, badblocks, smartctl, hddtemp, lm-sensor your way to the issue13:14
supermetaspike :these are terminal commands??13:14
supermetaspike :I am guessing its a HDD issue?hddtempwould do it?13:15
metaspikesuper, yep. i'm assuming hardware fault... run from a live cd and if it still hangs, probably is.13:15
EriC^^khussein78: did you try the guest account?13:15
khussein78EriC^^,  yes same problem13:16
supermetaspike : nice idea..will run from live CD..thanx13:16
EriC^^khussein78: di you try an earlier kernel?13:16
khussein78EriC^^,  yes also same problem13:16
metaspikesuper, these tools test various hardware components, memtest = ram, badblocks = hdd sectors, smartctl = hdd physical checks, lm-sensors, thermal readings..13:16
supermetaspike,any command for processor test13:17
BluesKaj_'Morning folks13:17
supermetaspike ,  any command for processor test13:18
superBluesKaj_ : Its night in Asia.13:18
metaspikesuper, lm-senors will give you cpu temp, you can trash it with an infinite loop 'while [[ true ]] do; do : ; done;' and see how high the temp gets13:19
metaspikesorry, while true ; do : ; done13:19
BluesKaj_super, well it's morning in Canada13:19
metaspikeprobably a better way to stress test cpu.. i dunno.13:20
supermetaspike : Hey i am new to xubuntu,where should i type those commands?Terminal?13:20

metaspike'sudo apt-get install gsmartcontrol && sudo gsmartcontrol'13:24

MrElendigrickardo1: openvpn13:44
tewardacmeraptor: it may store the information then in its own media library, but that's its own issue.  i think you'll need a more general support medium than the Ubuntu chat to discuss fixing a non-Ubuntu device to act as a NAS if even possible13:44
tewardacmeraptor: your issue is not actually Ubuntu, in the sense that you want to hook a printer to a NAS and neither are Ubuntu... you'll need either special forums or a different IRC channel, maybe a hardware discussion/support channel13:45

bosnjakcompdoc: not sure what you mean. I am talking about VNC, and i get that display=1 is port 5091 and display=2 is port 5092, but I'm not sure what that means on the server side? Does vncserver create a separate virtual desktops? and how? is this supported by X, or?14:31

ubottucoolstar,: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please file a bug using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.14:35
coolstarif you have a USB installation disc for one distro and a recovery partition on the disk for another, it boots the 1st distro halfway and loads the GUI for the latter distro which results in a broken live environment14:35
ikoniacoolstar:what ar eyou on about it14:36
ikoniawhat "latter" distro14:36
ikoniathe livecd/usb just boots from itself14:36
coolstarikonia: I created a live usb for xubuntu but I had a recovery partition for kubuntu14:36
=== AnimeWeedLord420 is now known as RainbowFactory
ikoniarecovery partition ???14:37
coolstarI dd'd the contents of the iso to a partition on the disk14:37
ikoniacoolstar: the usb will not boot that14:37
ikoniathe usb will boot itself - nothing more14:37
coolstarit booted itself but for some reason loaded kde14:37
coolstarwhen the usb was for xubuntu14:37
ikoniathat seems unlikley14:37
ikoniait must have not booted from the usb14:37
ikoniaas the usb will only read from the squash FS14:38
ikoniait can't read anything else14:38
RainbowFactoryIs there even the smallest possibility the flash drive could be haunted?14:38
coolstarikonia: I think it loaded the squashfs from the disk because I selected the USB from the bios14:38
ikoniacoolstar: there is no squashFS on the disk14:38
ikoniacoolstar: hence why it can't read it14:38
RainbowFactorycoolstar: If it couldn't boot from the USB you selected it will probably skip to the next bootable device. At least my motherboard does14:38
cfhowlettcoolstar, how to test?  go to bios and disable HDD.  then boot.14:39
davividalnbuonanno: it was working before.14:39
davividalnbuonanno: it is working on all other apps other than pgadmin.14:40
bosnjakcompdoc: this is what i don't understand: "a separate desktop"? What kind of desktops are those? I guess this is something embedded in X or something?14:45
nbuonannodavividal: So it's a fresh install of 14.10, and you installed gnome 3 on top of it?14:45
davividalnbuonanno: yes.14:45
compdoca virtual desktop thats created by vncserver14:45
davividalnbuonanno: I had a 12.04 install that I upgraded to 14.10 and it was 'working'.14:46
nbuonannoDo you have another window manager to run it in, e.g. Unity?14:46
davividalnbuonanno: I still have unity14:46
bosnjakcompdoc: i see, but how? Is this something like xvfb does? And why does it do that, can't it just use the regular xfce desktop?14:47
nbuonannoI guess try running it from a Unity session, and see if it functions properly.14:47
davividalnbuonanno: good point. I'll try. thanks14:48
bosnjakcompdoc: and also, if someone logs on to that machine phisically, will he see the same desktop as me from vnc client?14:48
compdocbosnjak, the regular xfce desktop, as you call it, is known as the console. its the desktop you get when you sit in front of the PC. you can share that desktop, and ubuntu uses Vino (or used to) to allow you to do that. With vncserver, several ppl can connect, and each has their own desktop. All depends on how you want to do it14:50
bosnjakcompdoc: so there is no way to use tightvnc to connect to the "console" display? Could I try setting the display to :0 in config file? Would that work?14:52
compdocbosnjak, I think you can, however, to connect to port 5900, you have to be logged into the console already. I cant share the desktop unless its logged in14:53

bittyx-desktopI need some help figuring out how to partition my hard drive for a fresh 14.04.01 install. I have 2 primary partitions for Windows (I'm dual-booting) at the beginning of the hard drive - the System Reserved one, and the actual Windows partition. I'd usually create another ext4 primary partition (mount point "/") just after the actual Win partition, and an extended one with two logical partitions - an 8GB swap partition at the end of the HDD (I17:09
bittyx-desktop have 8GB of RAM), and everything in-between is "/home". My question is, basically, is this an okay setup? Is there something better I could do?17:09
bittyx-desktopFor example, what's the advantage of having a separate partition for "/boot"?17:10
nbuonannobittyx-desktop: I assume one of the Windows partitions is your "main" OS on the system?17:10
cfhowlettbittyx-desktop, little to none ... when you install, IF ubuntu needs a /boot, it will create it.17:10
bittyx-desktopOr should I just install the boot loader to /dev/sda (instead of, say, /dev/sdaY).17:10
bittyx-desktopnbuonanno: Well, I don't really use Windows much for anything except for online banking - because my bank has a horrible online system where I have to recompile Java so that I could use it on Linuxes.17:11
bittyx-desktopnbuonanno: But I need it available, so...17:11
bittyx-desktopnbuonanno: And I do web dev, so from time to time I might need Windows to test stuff out in Internet Explorer, so I can't really not-have-it.17:12
cfhowlettbittyx-desktop,  you can dual boot or, perhaps better, install virtualbox to windows, install lubuntu or xubuntu to the virtualbox box.17:12
nbuonannoSo the install-Ubuntu-through-Windows is probably not a viable option for you, then.17:12
bittyx-desktop(I know there are other solutions, but this one usually works).17:12
bittyx-desktopHm I've never tried installing from Windows.17:12
bittyx-desktopI've been using Linux Mint for a couple of years now, but I'm sorta fed up, and wanna switch back to Ubuntu (which I was using before).17:12
bittyx-desktopcfhowlett: You mean run Ubuntu from a virtualbox within Windows? Nah, if I was doing that, I'd rather run *Windows* from a VM.17:13
nbuonannoAh! Here it is: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide17:13
k1l_wubi :/17:13
bittyx-desktopWindows is my secondary system on all the machines where I use it.17:13
cfhowlettbittyx-desktop, not sure your banking needs would be met with a virtual windows17:14
k1l_wubi is not a lasting solution. better make a real install on native partitions17:14
nbuonannok1l_: Not a fan? I've only used it a time or two myself.17:14
cfhowlettbittyx-desktop, your partition plan looks sound17:14
bittyx-desktopnbuonanno: Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. What's the advantage opposed to just installing from a live CD?17:14
daftykinsnbuonanno: don't ever, ever advise WUBI please. it is an abomination17:14
cfhowlettk1l_, please don't advise wubi use.  it's dead.  it's unsupported.  it WILL break machines.17:14
k1l_nbuonanno: we have tons of users coming here with wubi issues. either ubuntu or windows or both are corrupted and dont boot. and we cant repair that.17:14
daftykinsbittyx-desktop: ignore that idea entirely, it's utterly horrible17:14
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, None it is not supported.17:14
nbuonannoUnderstood. So it's a deprecated solution, or it just never worked?17:14
daftykinswhen it worked, it was hell17:15
k1l_nbuonanno: its more of a testing setup. if you want ubuntu make room for partitions and install it there17:15
bittyx-desktopcfhowlett: Yeah, who knows about that. I'm not saying that recompiling Java would be hard, I just feel, from a dev's point of view, that asking your users to do that means that there's something wrong with what you're developing. It would be like a web-dev asking users to compile a custom build of Firefox or something.17:15
bittyx-desktopSo I'd just rather stick with Windows since it seems to be supported out-of-the-box.17:16
cfhowlettbittyx-desktop, noted.  do to the dual then!17:16
=== mish_ is now known as Mish|Bad
=== hapax is now known as Guest25110
nbuonannoGotcha. I'll strike it from memory, then. bittyx-desktop: Ignore that :). That partition scheme makes sense, though I'm not certain enough on how you should set up the boot loader.17:16
bittyx-desktopOkay, thanks for the advice everybody! I just bought a new laptop and can't wait to run Ubuntu again.17:16
jpentlandWhat's the simplest way to convert an H.264 video file to 800x480 from the command line? I don't really mind if it's cropped or scaled.17:16
daftykinsbittyx-desktop: your partitioning setup sounded fine, though 8GB swap is a bit overkill. you only need it to match your system RAM if you want to hibernate/sleep etc17:16
bittyx-desktopdaftykins: I usually sleep on my desktop instead of shutting down, and since this is a laptop, it's rarely gonna be shut down anyway.17:17
tompskuAny help with cups: "The PPD version (5.2.10-pre2) is not compatible with Gutenprint 5.2.9." I got this aftre last updates.17:18
daftykinsbittyx-desktop: if it's new, are you sure it's not installed as EFI? may be best to share a pastebin of "sudo parted -l" from inside the livecd to be sure, though as you said 2 partitions already it probably isn't17:18
bittyx-desktopdaftykins: I don't know what EFI is. Hold on a sec...17:18
daftykinsbittyx-desktop: i have to run for now but i'm sure someone else can confirm/deny17:19

sadYes . Please can you help me with download new version of Firefox ?17:21
bubbasauressad, The latest is in the ubuntu repos.17:21

sadI am Dutch and I speak English too !17:22
cfhowlettsad, lxle is not supported here.  it's not ubuntu distro. sorry17:22
sadAll right . Thanks !17:23
bittyx-desktopSo, daftykins was asking if I have EFI - I have no idea what that is, but the output of the command they told me to run was http://pastebin.com/PQ5HtLdE17:23
bubbasauressad, This is ubuntu only support is all you will need to find their support is all.17:23

cfhowlett!fefi | bittyx-desktop17:23
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI17:23
anonymousi don't know the word ''dutch''17:24
cfhowlettanonymous, ask your UBUNTU support questions17:24
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, You do not have efi or with windows UEFI, that is a msdos set up.17:24
cfhowlettanonymous, this is ubuntu support.  ask your ubuntu support questions17:25
bittyx-desktopOh, I think I do have UEFI - in my BIOS I can choose whether I want to use "UEFI only", "Legacy only", or both - and if both, the boot order - I have "both" selected and "Legacy first". Is this okay or should I change something?17:25
anonymousah sorry i thinked this is a simple chat17:26
NigeySanyone here know if i can apaches vhost configs somewhere other than site-available and sites-enabled? it seems a2ensite is debian specific ? ...17:26
anonymousi'm sorry17:26
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, The hard drive info you showed us, shows a msdos on it is all, Sounds like you have a computer that's been modified was it new?17:26
EriC^^bittyx-desktop: if you choose uefi then you can't boot windows anymore17:26
EriC^^bittyx-desktop: you'd need to convert the partition table to gpt anyways and use an efi partition17:27
EriC^^bittyx-desktop: i think the easiest thing to do is install ubuntu in legacy mode with windows17:27
solsTiCehi. When i run electrum, and choose "create wallet" and choose next it loops over and over and then crash with error " no seed found"17:28
bittyx-desktopFWIW, the laptop is a ThinkPad W520, and it's a used one, if that means anything to anyone. The hard disk is a 240GB SSD, but I've installed Windows myself (had to resize the partition, as it was previously taking up the whole HDD).17:28
bubbasaures!find electrum17:28
ubottuFound: electrum, python-electrum17:28
bittyx-desktopSo if I have UEFI boot set to both (UEFI and legacy), but I have "legacy first" selected in the boot order, I should be fine?17:29
EriC^^bittyx-desktop: i think if you boot the live usb/cd in legacy mode and install you'll be fine17:30
bittyx-desktopEriC^^: Awesome, thank you (I'm now in the live CD booted with my current settings).17:30
bittyx-desktopYou people are great!17:30
EriC^^no problem17:31

Rileyive already tried adb kill server17:42
cfhowlettRiley, #android17:43
Rileywell this is an ubuntu issue17:44
Rileynot android17:44
cfhowlettRiley, actually it is an android issue.  if you don't have your android set, you'll get exactly the outcome you describe.  go to #android for help17:44
Rileythat didnt even make sense17:45
Rileyadb is not working on ubuntu not android17:45
Rileythere for i need help with ubuntu17:45
djskittlesRiley, perhaps try the same command as root - I suspect the device access from adb will require elevated privs17:46
cfhowlettRiley, no devices read because you need to set your android to debug mode.  no debugged device connected - no adb.17:46
Rileyyea well im soft bricked right now so i can use my phone at all and im trying to get adb setup so i can unbrick it17:46
cfhowlettRiley, dude.  seriously.  go to android.17:47
Rileycfhowlett, seriously dont be a douch17:47
cfhowlettRiley, I know what you're doing wrong , but it's NOT an ubuntu issue.  #android will tell you more17:47
cfhowlettand welcome to the /ignore list17:47
Rileyno they cant because they dont use ubuntu17:48
Rileythey would tell me to come here17:48
ubuntu-studiomay i ask guys What phablet is the best?17:48
malgorathI just recently installed ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop.  It runs great until I put the lid down and it suspends.  Then when I open it back up, I have to power if off and back on just to get it to respond, the graphics comes up and the login windows is there but there is nothing I can do with the keyboard/mouse or trackpad.  Its completely locked, I've tried alt+f1 ctrl+alt+f2 nothing.  Is there anything that can prevent t17:49
malgorathhis? or a way i can tell it when the lid closes just power off17:49
DJonesubuntu-studio: Its a fat tablet/phone17:49
DJonesubuntu-studio: Probably anything over 7 inches17:49
bubbasauresubuntu-studio, Best is a subjective.17:49
coolstar-chromebanyone know how I can use a proxy autoconfig with ubuntu?17:49
coolstar-chromebI'm using Xubuntu 14.0417:49
cfhowlettubuntu-studio, "best" is subjective ... personally, I prefer nexus but any of the devices in the google play store should work.  for recommendations, see reddit.com/r/android   or reddit.com/r/nexus17:50
arthur_afariasAs a client? Network Manager can do it to you.17:50
DJonesRiley: It might be worth joining #ubuntu-touch to ask, they've probably got more experience in using the android management apps under ubuntu17:51
ubuntu-studioNo i am looking phablet for my pocket size and what is top phablet?17:51
piranahOK I have googled till my eyes hurt. Trying boot Ubuntu Live cd on Dell Vostro 3560. Error on boot drm_kms_helper panic and kernel panic not synced17:51
cfhowlettubuntu-studio, pretty much not an ubuntu issue.  go to #nexus or #android17:51
ubuntu-studioi am looking phablet for my pocket size and what is top phablet?17:52
piranahI suspect the issue may be caused by the dual video cards built in intel and ATI17:52
ReedysethGuys do you know any PHP IRC Channel ?17:52
piranahanyone have any ideas ?17:52
cfhowlettubuntu-studio, this is off-topic.  ask #android17:52
piranahI have tried ubuntu 12.04 as well as the latest version both have the same boot issue17:53
zgorbyo_hi all17:53
cfhowlettpiranah, you can try nomodeset to default to low level VGA.  after installation, you'll need to figure out the graphics17:53
ReedysethGuys do you know any PHP IRC Channel ?17:54
piranahcfhowlett: I think i tried that from the f6 boot options. But cant rem for sure. I will give that a try thanks17:54
DJonesubuntu-studio: Best tablet isn't something the ubuntu channel can answer, you need to ask the android channels or general hardware channels17:54
bittyx-desktopYay, Ubuntu 14.04.01 up and running! Thanks again everyone for your advice!17:54
piranahbbiab testing suggested solution.17:55
ubuntu-studioi am looking phablet for my pocket size and what is top phablet?17:55
DJonesubuntu-studio: No, we don't know17:56
popeyubuntu-studio: please don't keep repeating the same question17:56
cfhowlettubuntu-studio, stop asking here.  not an ubuntu issue.17:56
zgorbyo_in my ubuntu 1410, recently installed, i cant find the options for shutdown and restart, i can only choose between  lock and quit session17:56
ubuntu-studioOK and where i need to go?17:56
daftykinsubuntu-studio: to a phone shop17:57
DJonesubuntu-studio: Google or the android channels, or the ##hardware channels, all of which you've been told already17:57

cfhowlettlinusthebear, or a failing gpu or a loose connection ... lots of possibles ...19:09

daftykinschristian__: use sudo again.19:10
jasnodaftykins: looked at it and it's almost what I want.  I need to handle varying drive sizes and i'm not sure if it can handle that.  I'd feel more comfortable modifying a debian/ubuntu based iso.19:11
linusthebearIts a laptop, and a fairly new one.19:11
daftykinsjasno: clonezilla runs from debian :)19:11
linusthebearId be surprised if the GPU was failing of disconnected.19:11
daftykinslinusthebear: first steps then 1) identify your graphics hardware 2) identify which driver you're using19:11
daftykinslinusthebear: install pastebinit and run "lspci | pastebinit" for 1)19:12
nusrxorg is using up a lot of system resources. i have the nvidia drivers installed, and firefox tabs, vm and libreoffice open..is it normal. i can hear the fan humming..19:12
linusthebearOne thing - is that I cant seem to switch to a proprietary driver from the GUI19:12
linusthebearlspci gives  Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Kabini [Radeon HD 8400 / R3 Series]19:12
linusthebearand no - Not a newbie19:12
jasnodaftykins: oh, sorry I was thinking of systemrescuecd which is gentoo(i think).  Still though clonezilla gives me more than I need.  I also need to make the whole thing seamless to an end user(i.e. pop in the usb key, select upgrade or install in the isolinux menu, call my script and walk the user through it via custom prompts).19:13

linusthebearbut I can understand why youd want to do it locally.19:16
jasnodaftykins: I created debian packages for our software but no one wants to use them... just format and untar an image from a 'golden reference system'.   Whatever...19:16

daftykinsNoreen: why?19:21
Noreenis it really important why?19:22

ubottutunafish, you could try that: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD).

dreamcat5it boots fabulously fine with /boot and the linux kernel files on a FAT32 partition. if only i can get around this stupid dpkg error when upgrading19:37
fluffferi'm trying to remember the name of a lo-fi sad game series of two, on the software center. i must've seen them two or three years ago and they might still be there19:38
dreamcat5because FAT32 has no permissions, when the dpkg install script tried to chown / chmod it's permission denied --> failure19:38
hxmdo you give support to home media hard drives?19:39
dreamcat5i could temporarily move my /boot onto / and remount it afterwards. but that's a hassle to keep doing that for every kernel upgrade being pushed out by ubuntu software updater19:39

xenogearI used a website like that which had it's own user directory and stuff. It was basically like a virtual box but through a web application22:20

Richie086xenogear: linuxzoo.net22:22
Richie086try that22:22
cyphaseVM_iso_, no need to ask, just ask :)22:23
VM_iso_Why was the wget 1.16 issue handled with a snapshot instead of a pushed update?22:23
VM_iso_1.16 being the fix and 1.15 being the problem.22:24
k1l_VM_iso_: in general ubuntu doesnt ship updates but patched security and heavy bugfixes22:24
VM_iso_wget was a security issue, but that is not a major concern because they are shipping the new version in the next version.22:25
k1l_VM_iso_: you have a ctte?22:26
sadhalo !22:26
VM_iso_Ya, one sec22:26

ubottuAbsolute path traversal vulnerability in GNU Wget before 1.16, when recursion is enabled, allows remote FTP servers to write to arbitrary files, and consequently execute arbitrary code, via a LIST response that references the same filename within two entries, one of which indicates that the filename is for a symlink. (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-4877)22:27
sadI have a problem22:27

k1l_VM_iso_: again: ubuntu does patches. dont just blindly look at the version number22:30
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, Not any way technically supported here and a bad idea.22:30

VM_iso_Go ahead and help bittyx first, mine is mostly an inquiry.22:31
VM_iso_@k1l What would be the best way to be aware of when Ubuntu is safely patched? (Since I can't rely on version numbers).22:33
k1l_VM_iso_: http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/22:33
k1l_VM_iso_: and see the changelogs of the packages you concern22:33
bittyx-desktopbubbasaures: I know it isn't a supported way, and I shouldn't ask for help if stuff doesn't work, so I'm aware I'd be doing it on my own responsibility.22:34
bittyx-desktopIs it a better idea (and I use the term loosely) to add a PPA like https://launchpad.net/~tsvetko.tsvetkov/+archive/ubuntu/trusty-backports and install from there?22:34
VM_iso_Okay, I've heard of this before, but wanted to make sure that Ubuntu did the same.22:34
VM_iso_@bittyx-desktop You could always compile.22:35
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, PPA's are not supported, it is not kosher to ask for a install from another release, we keep the repos with the release by and large.22:35
BoreeasI installed texmaker and babel-lang-german, and put "\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}" on top of my latex file. But texmaker still underlines every word in the document22:35
BoreeasAny idea why?22:35
bittyx-desktopOr is discussing (not debugging, mind you) 3rd party PPAs considered off-topic here?22:35
lnostdalok, so 14.04.1 server won't even install  ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1117292 )   .. and once 14.10 server installs there's no networking packages installed at all (even though i configured wlan when installing) .....and nothing happens when plugging in an ethernet cable  .. no dhcp  .. nothing ......great22:35

bekkslnostdal: I'm deploying 14.04 server without issues. Whats the exact issue you have during installation?22:36
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, YOu would talk with the maintainer of any 3rd party repos access, or their support.22:36
=== kandinsk1 is now known as kandinski
VM_iso_@bittyx-desktop I could compile and share deb with you.22:37
bittyx-desktopbubbasaures: I know non-official PPAs aren't supported here, and I agree with that, I just want to emphasize that I'm not asking about a problem I have with a 3rd party PPA, but rather, whether I can do the install from the official repo (but a future Ubuntu release), or is that not something that's possible or makes sense, in which case I'd use the 3rd party PPA?22:37
k1l_VM_iso_: compiling from source doenst ship updates. so you are on your own then.22:37
bittyx-desktopVM_iso_: Thank you very much for offering; however, the PPA I found has the just-before-latest version available.22:37
bittyx-desktopSo you don't need to bother.22:38
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, This is not supported here "whether I can do the install from the official repo (but a future Ubuntu release)"22:38
k1l_bittyx-desktop: what was the main issue?22:38
=== niko is now known as Guest91378

k1l_bittyx-desktop: mixing repos is going to make trouble. so no. dont do that22:38
bittyx-desktopbubbasaures: Okay, thank you.22:38
bittyx-desktopk1l_: Yeah, no issue really, I was just asking whether it's possible to install from the official repos but a future release.22:38
bittyx-desktopI can see how this might be a bad idea - just wanted to know whether people do that.22:39
=== Termana is now known as Guest99393
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, If you were forced to a install than help may be here, it is not a fine line but we have to keep it simple to some extent to start with. Mixing apps means mixing dependencies this is an issue at times in upgrades....etc22:39
VM_iso_Is there an alternative you can use?22:40
k1l_bittyx-desktop: if you want stableness use LTS. then you dont want bleeding edge anyway. or you use the non-lts and uograde all 6 months22:40
bittyx-desktopbubbasaures: Nah, I completely understand the policy of supporting only official and stable stuff - otherwise, with the variety of stuff people can do, it would probably become awful here (and other support channels).22:41
k1l_bittyx-desktop: "i want the fastest car with the lowest fuel consuption" is not going to work. so choose on and live with the decision22:41
bittyx-desktopk1l_: I like my base system to be stable, but I also want to install certain bleeding edge tools (on my own responsibility).22:41
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, Yeah that is the rhetoric, the complexity, heh I never get involved there if I can.22:41
bittyx-desktopI know this doesn't always work, but there's no harm in trying.22:42
k1l_bittyx-desktop: then you are on your own there. see if there is a ppa. but we cant support that22:42
CoC_towliecan someone help me with virtualbox share? i need to process some file in the linux guest.  (the tool is linux only) However when i drop it into the virtual box share from the host (windows 7) i cant see the file in linux guest22:43
VM_iso_I get that you want a stable system, but why so discouraging of bleeding edge software?22:43
k1l_CoC_towlie: guest additions installed on the ubuntu guest?22:43
CoC_towliek1l_, yes22:43
bittyx-desktopYeah, my question was more along the lines of "can I do this thing that might not work", not "I did this stupid unsupported thing, please help". So all is understood, and thanks everyone for the tips.22:43

VM_iso_@Coc_towlie Ya, I've had the same problem in the last two versions of Virtualbox.22:44
VM_iso_@Coc_towlie It may be a regression, but I haven't confirmed that.22:45
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, Not sure if you realize this but just asking has a red flag that makes us wonder how whole you will dig. ;)22:45
bittyx-desktopVM_iso_: Okay, so to be concise - the official repo has git-cola 1.9.3 for trusty and 2.0.6 for vivid. There's a 3rd party PPA with 2.0.7 for trusty. I thought I might be better off installing the "official" 2.0.6 from a future release, as opposed to a 3rd party package for the release I'm running. But as mentioned by others, this is probably a bad idea, so I'll stick with the 3rd party repo.22:45
bittyx-desktopbubbasaures: Sure, I get that. Thanks for being understanding either way!22:46
bittyx-desktopbubbasaures: In short, the answer to "How do I do X" is sometimes not "You do it this way", but rather "Why would you want to do X?" :)22:47
bubbasauresbittyx-desktop, I know why.22:48
bubbasauresat least I suspect I do anyway22:48
k1l_i think all is said on that theoretical issue  then :)22:49
bubbasauresnothing bad we all want to help and be sure good info is there.22:49
bittyx-desktopThanks again all. This channel is great!22:49

VM_iso_@CoC_towlie Have you updated Virtualbox since installing guest additions? If you don't have the latest guest additions installed that may be the culprit.22:54

VM_iso_@CoC_towlie I'll make sure mine is updated (don't think it is) and I'll get back to you.22:54

compdoclnostdal, what does the command 'ifconfig' show?22:56
lnostdalcompdoc: yes, it did ..   the installer was fine; it found wlan and everything ..   but now after having booted into the system it can't even get a connection via ethernet cable22:56
lnostdalcompdoc: nothing .. no devices22:56
lnostdalcompdoc: well, except the loopback one22:56
bekkslnostdal: And whats the output of "ifconfig -a"?22:56
lnostdali can force them up via ip link set .. .. ..22:57
compdoclnostdal, oh, you dont have a wired connection? I dont know much about wireless22:57
lnostdalthis is a laptop with both wired and wireless, compdoc22:57
lnostdalbekks: that does indeed show the two networking devices on this machine: wlan0 and p5p122:58
bekkslnostdal: So all you have to is is configuring your interfaces. No packages are missing actually, I bet. :)22:58
=== pixelfog is now known as Guest5505
compdocp5p1 means its using that Consistent Network Device Naming thing. I dont like it22:59
lnostdalah, perhaps that's not so common ..      i'd normally expect even a server install to be able to get up and running with networking via cable automatically23:02
lnostdali've never heard about "p5p1" naming23:02
bekkslnostdal: Which is a wrong assumption, basically.23:02
