Chuck_Norris("windows" key for windows users :p)00:16
MrSavageChuck_Norris: what if i want a dedicated icon for a terminal that's holding Irssi?00:17
MrSavageAlso how can I select the right window from a gropuing properly? I find it very convuluted and just takes longer00:17
EriC^^MrSavage: make a .desktop file with the command gnome-terminal -e irssi00:17
MrSavageEriC^^: but them anything run in gnome-terminal will be grouped with other gnome-terminals right?00:18
EriC^^MrSavage: you mean with alt+tab?00:18
creatorbmorning all...00:18
EriC^^MrSavage: no, just that icon00:18
MrSavageEriC^^: with alt-tab and also clicking00:18
EriC^^MrSavage: with alt+tab use alt+` to switch between the groups00:19

MrSavageChuck_Norris: where do i put the .desktop file?00:20
MrSavagedesktop folder? :P00:20
Chuck_NorrisEriC^^: no, that will pop up a windows for him to create a launcher00:20
EriC^^Chuck_Norris: i dont have that00:20
EriC^^MrSavage: /usr/share/applications00:20
MrSavageEriC^^: I find that so convuluted00:20
MrSavageChuck_Norris: I have unity00:21
MrSavagei don't have that command00:21
EriC^^MrSavage: use a desktop file in that directory as a template00:21
MrSavageI find it very convuluted to use alt-tab, then use using alt-`00:21
Chuck_Norrisdoh' i am on gnome and i have it, but EriC^^ will is telling you how to do it manually00:22
EriC^^it's pretty easy00:22
MrSavageEriC^^: it just feels annoying for my hands to press and it seems like an extra step00:22
MrSavageChuck_Norris: what you mean gnome-shell?00:23
EriC^^MrSavage: if it was otherwise it would probably open up the stuff you didnt want00:23
MrSavagepersonally i would rather click then have to use keyboard shortcuts to manage many windows00:23
rnmswhats here00:24
Chuck_NorrisMrSavage: it's a shell for gnome, like unity is a shell for gnome too -.-00:24
MrSavageEriC^^: I don't mind double clicking for an application on the taskbar, but i notice if you click too many times it closes the window displays...00:24
getooi have installed ubuntu on my macbook pro and now i am trying to put snow leopard back on it .. can anybody help me out please00:25
getooi did try google with not much help00:26
reisiogetoo: try #macosx00:26
getooreisio: the funny thing is they sent me here00:26
getooand for some reason i think linux people know a lot more then #macosx peeps00:27
reisiothat is funny00:27
reisioyeah, like they know the right channel :P00:27
OerHeksif you want to wipe ubuntu, they know howto do it with leopard.00:27
MrSavageChuck_Norris: I mean what would i type to make the shortcut for unity?00:27
getooi tried booting acording to the apple instruction but the installation wont beging and i get a beep :)00:28
EriC^^MrSavage: open a terminal, type cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop /usr/share/applications/irssi.desktop00:29
Chuck_NorrisMrSavage: idk, but you could create a keyboard shortcut i think00:29
getooI'm using ERC Version 5.3 with GNU Emacs 23.4.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.24.21, multi-tty) of 2013-10-25.00:29
EriC^^MrSavage: then type gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/irssi.desktop and change the Exec part to gnome-terminal irssi00:29
EriC^^sorry i mean gnome-terminal -e irssi00:29
EriC^^MrSavage: you need sudo for the cp command00:30
Chuck_Norriswell... i am going to watch "Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri" n1 EriC^^ cya MrSavage00:33
MrSavageEriC^^: putting "gnome-terminal irssi" doesn't work if i put it in the Exec. Nothing opens00:36
MrSavageEriC^^: I mean the terminal opens, but no IRSSI00:37
EriC^^gnome-terminal -e irssi00:37
MrSavageEriC^^: It worked but the icon is getting grouped with my other terminals00:38
in_deep_thoughtI have a ubuntu iso file on a flash drive that I did the dd if = /Downloads/ubuntu iso of = /dev/disk1s2  thing with. How, when I put it into the computer, can I get it to boot from that so that I can install ubuntu00:38
MrSavageI'm not liking unity so far :(00:38
EriC^^in_deep_thought: set the bios to boot the usb first00:39
in_deep_thoughtEriC^^: is the bios on F12?00:39
MrSavageDELETE FOR ME00:39
MrSavageF12 for boot menu00:39
in_deep_thoughthmm my bios didn’t give me any boot options.00:40
MrSavagein_deep_thought: you have to hold down the key until it comes up, from bootup00:40
EriC^^in_deep_thought: check the boot options in the bios00:41
EriC^^in_deep_thought: you can change the order permanently00:41
in_deep_thoughtIt says a bunch of text, and then press Ctrl R to change boot options. Then it takes me to a purple screen with ubuntu versions (previous install). I don’t think im on the bios yet00:42
in_deep_thoughtit keeps giving me the Power Edge expandable raid controller bios. whatever that is. The only option is Ctrl-R and it takes me to that purple screen, not the real bios.00:45
in_deep_thoughtperhaps this is a better question for #linux?00:45
EriC^^in_deep_thought: try a different keyboard button00:46
EriC^^in_deep_thought: try pressing esc when the pc boots see what you get00:47
daftykinsin_deep_thought: disk1s2 didn't sound right. (not only for sounding like a nasty Mac) but how about testing that drive in a normal system to see it boots, before wrestling with some antique? ;)00:51
in_deep_thoughtdaftykins: I have another working ubuntu comptuer. maybe if I do the whole dd thiing from a /dev/sdb or whatever, it will be bootable?00:52
daftykinsyeah, or just test it on that system too00:53
daftykinsmake sure the drive is known good before experimenting in the funky system00:53
daftykinsbut entering a BIOS really ought not to be to difficult00:53
EriC^^in_deep_thought: why would you dd your /dev/sdb?00:53
daftykinsi believe in_deep_thought means the ISO onto /dev/sdb if that were the flash drive :)00:54
in_deep_thoughtEriC^^: I mean that when doing the dd line I have to use of = /dev/disk1s2 because its moving from a mac. Maybe if I moved it from a ubuntu machine where the flash drives are labeled /dev/sdb it would work better00:55
in_deep_thoughtI have no idea why, sounds like it might work better though00:55
in_deep_thoughtbut yeah if I can’t enter the bios on the machine I am trying to install on, I am kind of screwed anyways00:55
daftykinsi can't say i understand mac disk naming enough to say what it would be on there00:56
MrSavageChuck_Norris: You still there?00:56
EriC^^in_deep_thought: ok, not sure but i think it should be /dev/disk100:57
EriC^^i think /disk1s2 means the second partition of disk100:57
EriC^^not sure00:58
pyrotixSo I can't update anything through the software updater. It keeps trying to tell me to check my internet connection. I tried a couple mirrors and this didn't change.  Trying "select best server" gave me a server in China which also did not work00:59
pyrotixping -c3 archive.ubuntu.com works with no lost packets00:59
daftykinspyrotix: forget silly GUI updaters, "sudo apt-get update" in a terminal and pastebin it to us.00:59
in_deep_thoughtEriC^^: yes I think you’re correct. I will re-flash it or whatever its called. I still need to get to that bios however, hmmmm01:00

MrSavagewhich wine do you recommend for gaming?01:13
MrSavageI was told wine ppa is best01:13
lyleI have about 20 programs docked to my sidebar.  I do that to make it easier to launch  them.  Is there a better way?  Is Cinamon a good alternative?01:13
OerHeksMrSavage, carefull with ppa's, they can break something, and are unsupported here01:16

MrSavagei did apt-get install wine, how bad was that?01:27
MrSavagebubbasaures: I found out the reason why i couldn't install linux01:27
bubbasauresMrSavage, Cool, what was it?01:28
bubbasaureslyle, I like the cairo-dock as an extra place for icons, however I don't use unity01:29
MrSavagebubbasaures: I had 1 monitor plugged into my graphics card, and 1 monitor plugged into my mobo. It was making ubuntu freak out and it still does01:29
MrSavagebubbasaures: I haven't submitted the bug yet01:29
MrSavageI'm still trying to get ubuntu setup01:30
MrSavagewell customized01:30
bubbasauresah, the hidden variable  hehe heh01:30
MrSavageSo is apt-get install wine a bad idea?01:31
MrSavageam i installing uneccsassary stuff?01:31
bubbasauresGood job though, that was hard work for you MrSavage01:31
MrSavagebubbasaures: it was easy, i installed it via uefi, the monitor bug was just wow01:31
jmaderoMrSavage: either way it's not bad like Windows bad where you'll be left over with a ton of crap - it's easy enough to remove01:32
bubbasauresno fanboi tones there, lol01:33
MrSavagei have alot of stuff needed01:33
* jmadero isn't ashamed at all :-b01:33
MrSavageI need to make a separate icon for IRSSI so it's not grouped with other terminals gnome-terminal --disable-factory --class term-red --name term-red --title Term-Red --window-with-profile=red -e '/home/virtual/Desktop/test1.sh'01:33
jmaderoI really wish Unity prioritized locally installed software over anything else for the universal search - without that, it's about half as useful01:34
MrSavageand I need to somehow get IRSSI to play sounds when my name is said01:34
MrSavagealso why can't the file browser remember my zoomed in levels for a folder? I want to view pictures at a very zoomied in level, but it keeps resetting and generating thumbnails01:34
bubbasaureswell the ability to communicate clearly without bias is a developmental issue01:34
EriC^^jmadero: try super+a01:35
jmaderoEriC^^: ah that's useful - but still would be best if it searched everything but just prioritized software over things like wiki01:35
jmaderobubbasaures: I see no reason to hide bias here01:35
MrSavagealso how do i get the terminal title bar to show what directory i'm in or what program i'm running?01:35
jmaderoand bias based on objective criteria isn't really bias01:35
jmaderoanyhoo that's off topic01:36
jmaderoEriC^^: thanks for that shortcut01:36
EriC^^MrSavage: i think you can set that in the profile01:36
jmaderoEriC^^: do you know if I can default just super to that, and then have super+a to do an "all" search?01:36
MrSavageEriC^^: i tried look but it doesn't show01:36
MrSavageEriC^^: yeah it's not doing it01:37
MrSavagealso i'm not really liking how it's hard to navigate multiple instances of a process01:37
MrSavagewhy doesn't 3 clicks on one icon in taskbar make it stay on window selection? It would've been ok01:37
MrSavageisntead it cancels window selection if you click too much01:38
EriC^^MrSavage: you could set the irssi profile to have irssi as a title, and set it to keep the initial title01:38
MrSavageEriC^^: I want my current viewed directory to show, along with the process currently running if there is one01:38
MrSavageEriC^^: It only says "Terminal"01:38
EriC^^MrSavage: change the initial title to Irssi01:39
MrSavagealso another strange thing i noticed. I see an instance of filebrowser, i try clicking the instance on taskbar but it starts a new instance01:39
MrSavageEriC^^: But what if I'm using cd to get around and i'm doing terminal stuff? I want to differentiate the terminals i'm in01:40
EriC^^MrSavage: yeah that happens if you've opened an ext hdd with it01:40
D3Vdoes ubuntu cover kubuntu aswell?01:40
jmaderoD3V: you mean the chat?01:40
MrSavageEriC^^: Is there a way so it doesn't do such an annoying bug like thing?01:40
jmaderomost is the same outside of the DE, so probably ;)01:40
D3Vits a plasma issue :|01:41
jmaderoah, maybe try #kde01:41
MrSavageEriC^^: I would rather have 1 icon instead of an icon for each of my 4 HDDs01:41
MrSavagetakes up too much space01:41
EriC^^MrSavage: set irssi just for the profile you created for irssi01:41

moridefault partitioning provided by ubunt installer01:43

moriis there any guide showing how to partition "in a right way", swap, home ,/, boot and so on01:44
jmaderomori: you'll get a ton of opinions about what is right and wrong01:44
jmaderomori: but generally I just separate home from root always01:45
EriC^^MrSavage: what do you mean by mounts?01:45
morijmadero, i see01:45
jmaderomori: I can format and reinstall everything with all configuration ready to go in about 25 minutes using a script01:45
EriC^^MrSavage: manually mounting it?01:45
MrSavageEriC^^: Using /mnt/01:45
jmaderoothers split boot also - I haven't found that to be useful personally01:45
MrSavageEriC^^: So I trick unity into thinking it's accessing my computer and not whatever device. So when i click filebrowser IT THEN ACTUALLY GOES TO THE OPEN FILE BROWSER AND NOT MERELY OPEN A NEW INSTANCE.01:46
MrSavageseriously, that's ridiculous01:46
jmaderomori: if you just google "separate home root partition ubuntu" you'll find plenty of blogs and how tos01:46
jmaderomori: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/installseparatehome01:46
morijmadero, tyvm01:46
bubbasauresthere is a ubuntu wiki on that01:46
EriC^^MrSavage: there's a workaround01:48
MrSavageEriC^^: which is?01:48
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1170647 in Unity "After minimizing an external media, clicking on the "Files" icon on the Launcher doesn't restore the minimized window, but opens a new one" [High,Triaged]01:48
MrSavagemaybe i should use a different file browser anyways? Since this file browser doesn't remember my zoom levels either01:48
jmaderoMrSavage: set the zoom level in preferences01:50
jmaderoelse it reverts01:50
jmaderoMrSavage: but in all honesty I think nemo browser is better than Nautilus - so if you're using a different one, maybe try that01:50
mindless_chaosI was having trouble finding nemo01:52
MrSavagejmadero: I only want the zoom to be remembered for ONE folder01:52
MrSavagefor a certain folder01:52
MrSavageEriC^^: Thanks for the workaround01:52
jmaderoah, let me see if Nemo does that01:52
jmaderoone minute01:52
jmaderoMrSavage: nemo does that01:52
jmaderoMrSavage: allows you to do list/icon view + zoom level, per folder01:53
MrSavagealright so do i do apt-get install nemo? I'm always unsure if i'm supposed to pick a certain thing01:53
MrSavageor if i'm installing apps right01:53
jmaderoMrSavage: I believe it's nemo-browser01:53

xanguao_O nemo is a file browser, chromium is an internet browser01:54
jmaderoindeed - but the -browser is unique to chromium ;)01:55

jmaderoretroispresto: well first off, I never recommend upgrading, vs. just starting fresh02:15

jmaderoin another room someone said NFS "wasn't designed for streaming" and that's what's causing my issues . . . I can't find evidence of this claim02:25
mindless_chaoslike I said, you could try, but your better off backing up and clean install02:25
mindless_chaosare you familiar with live cd?02:26

bmercerI just want you all to know that this fucking shitty software overwrote an entire disk instead of installing over windows 7 like the installer said02:27
EriC^^bmercer: did you press reinstall ubuntu?02:28
mindless_chaosthen you did something wrong, or there was something wrong with your MBR to begin with02:28
mindless_chaosor that..02:28
xanguainstalling over windows 7 sounds like installing OVER windows 7 as you said bmercer02:28
bmerceryes, except it installed a separate disk I had in my machine02:28
mindless_chaosoh, then it may not have overwrote windows, just didn't add it to grub02:29
mindless_chaosyou just have to fix your windows MBR02:29
bmercerno, it was supposed to overwrite windows, and overwrote my other disk instead02:29
bmercermy data is gone, and the installer is stupid02:29
EriC^^bmercer: how do you know that02:29
jmaderoand how is that a support question02:29
EriC^^bmercer: which disk are you booting in the bios?02:30
mindless_chaosif it did indeed overwrite you can probably still recover a majority of files02:30
EriC^^yeah ^^02:30
mindless_chaosno doubt the installation was smaller then what was there02:31
mindless_chaosI have seen it happen before, but wont promis, but I have created the same size partition in the same place, and not formated, and poof stuff was there, granted Ill stuff, but it was there02:32
bmercerit's not likely to happen, what it overwrote was setup with fdisk, *and* disklabel02:32
bmercerand... it was an ssd02:33
jmaderoyou can still recover it - it's not fun to do but it's possible02:33
mindless_chaosunless you specify to over write blocks, it will not erase, just overwirte where it needs, but not all02:33
jmaderobmercer: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery02:33
k2gremlinI really love how easy it is to update Ubuntu Server :)02:34
bmerceryes, off to restore from backups02:34
jmaderobmercer: it takes a lot to actually delete data, when you format you're really not deleting anything, it only tells the system "you can write over these blocks if you need to"02:34
jmaderoah that's better ;)02:35
jmaderoglad you have those02:35
mindless_chaos**** has backups and is *&#&$#02:35
jmaderowhat's the proper rsync command if I don't want to preserve ownership/permissions02:35
mindless_chaosjust popped in to complain i see02:35
jmaderowas pretty obvious at the beginning ;)02:36
mindless_chaoshe had to have something hinkey with his hardware if the installer decided the other disk was appropriate02:37
jmaderomindless_chaos: I'm sure the problem was the person sitting in the chair, but you never want to say that - especially after loss of data which is no fun02:38
jmaderomindless_chaos: and let's not forget the huge warning about backing up before the installer even lets you move forward02:38
retroisprestoi'm going to try upgrading to 12.04.5 after the iso is done downloading and i burn it to usb02:39
mindless_chaosdid you backup?02:39
mindless_chaoshave at it hos02:40
jmaderoretroispresto: I'll be really curious about how that goes - please report back once you're done02:40
jmaderofor future support reference02:40
retroisprestothere is a possibility it might not give me the 'upgrade' option o.o02:41
mindless_chaosYes, but if it breaks, you should as suggested before, that when you clean install you make a partition to mount your home directory.02:41
jmaderoretroispresto: I'm just curious why you're doing it this way to begin with vs. the clean install, but so is your right to try ;)02:41
xanguaretroispresto: it will not, 100%02:42
xanguaalso you were told about Lubuntu already, instead of Ubuntu02:42
mindless_chaosbecause if you ever break it again, you can install clean, then mount your home and update in fstab so it mounts at boot02:42
jmaderodoes a cd/usb install even offer an upgrade option? I've never seen that02:43
mindless_chaosyeah I believe so02:43
mindless_chaosyes it does, because b4 I installed 14.04 I broke 13 by upgrading02:44
mindless_chaosbut it was expected02:44
mindless_chaosit should ask you if you want to upgrade if it detects an ubuntu installation present02:45

jmaderoIbsinRG: suggest ubuntu-offtopic02:48
somsipIbsinRG: this is looking like an offtopic issue. Is this anything to do directly with ubuntu support?02:48

daftykinsIbsinRG: that's nice but it's not an ubuntu support question02:48
castieldebian ist top, also Archelinux02:48
IbsinRGNope, how do I get to offtopic?02:48
somsipIbsinRG: /join #ubuntu-offtopic02:48
jmaderosame way you got here just join that one02:48
mindless_chaosheres the solution.. get a bunch of usb pen drives, install each distro directly to USB drive. Then just plug in which you want to use, and select to boot from usb02:49
retroispresto^ what mindless_chaos said except with sd cards02:49
mindless_chaosI'd type it out for you, but I don't want to go to off topic....02:50
daftykinsexcept you can't always boot SD cards02:50
daftykinsand they'd all be slow and die02:50
mindless_chaosyou can if you have the SD card in a usb card reader02:50
daftykinsnope, that's system dependant02:51

explodingmangoThere is a series of 3D navigation devices made by 3D Connexion which are supported by kernel drivers. The most basic model, the SpaceNavigator, works right out of the box. There's a more advanced model, SpacePilot, which also works for input, but it also has an LCD screen. My question is, is the SpacePilot's LCD screen also supported by the kernel driver?05:55

DJonessgo11: I suspect your update manager is set to only show LTS releases08:57

sgo11DJones, how to check that option? thanks.08:58
DJonessgo11: Just trying to remember where its set08:58
sgo11ok. thanks.08:58
fidel_bahamas: update it with text?08:58
fidel_if i interpret it right - you want to display a changing text as part of your desktop (or wallpaper) if so - take a look at conky08:59
geirhabahamas: imagemagick can add text on images08:59
VespianScreen isn't showing ANY data from the SIM Card Reader.08:59
fidel_conky can display text as layer above your wallpaper/desktop09:00
geirhayeah conky is probably what you want09:01
DJonessgo11: Open up Software and updates, on the 3rd tab called updates, there is a tick box "Notify me of a new UBuntu version" probably says LTS only, that needs to be "For any new version"09:01
bahamasfidel_, geirha: basically I want to use the wallpaper as a reminder of things09:02
sgo11DJones, right, thanks. I set it to "Never". btw, why does ubuntu.com still recommend 14.04.1 LTS instead of 14.10 ? It didn't do this in previous LTS release. thanks.09:02
VespianAnyone? http://pastebin.com/g7PDDszR09:03
DJonessgo11: Its probably recommended as LTS because it is LTS with longer support09:03
fidel_bahamas: check conky then09:04
sgo11DJones, in the page http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/ it recommends 14.04.1. From my memory, in the old days, it always recommends the latest version for desktop PC. I feel this is weird. does it mean 14.10 is not stable?09:06
cfhowlettsgo11, 9 months of support vs. 3 years.  do the math.09:06
sgo11cfhowlett, ok.09:07
DJonessgo11: I think thats just because a lot of users want long term stability and support (5 years with LTS) so they're recommended to use that, wheras the non-LTS releases are only supported for a short time and the user would have to upgrade within 9 months to keep getting support, not everybody wants the latest versions and has the time for regular upgrades09:08
EriC^^*5 years support09:08
cfhowlettsgo11, personal choice and pain tolerance question.  IMHO, LTS is optimized and polished for stability.  bleeding edge = bloody.09:08
VespianSurely someone here knows about reading/writing from/to serial devices....09:08
sgo11If I stay with 14.04.1 LTS and when 15.04 is out, can I directly upgrade the system from 14.04.1 to 15.04 with do-release-upgrade? or do I have to go through 14.04 --> 14.10 --> 15.04 ? thanks.09:11
DJonessgo11: 15.04 isn't LTS, so you'd have to go through 14.1009:12
DJonessgo11: LTS are only released every 2 years, 12.04, 14.04 and next one will be 16.0409:12
sgo11DJones, ok. what about upgrading to 16.04? do-release-upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 directly? or go though 14.04 -- 14.10 -- 15.04 -- ... -- 16.04 LTS ?09:13
DJonessgo11: You'll be able to upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 directly09:14
VespianOnly issue with major updates is that it can break a lot of programs. (09:14
sgo11DJones, that's cool. thanks a lot. :)09:14
Vespian:( *09:14
VespianDJones: Do you know anything about reading from a serial device?09:15
DJonesVespian: Sorry, no09:15
sgo11Vespian, that's not cool then.. will it be safer in server upgrade?09:15
Vespiansgo11: Nothing that can be done about programs breaking... takes a while for developers to make it work for the new version of the OS.... which is why every major version update to the OS is given a label... for instance 14.10 is Utopic Unicorn09:16
VespianAnd the version names are quite relevant when adding a PPA to the repository.09:17
sgo11Vespian, ok, cheers.09:17
DJonessgo11: Most people will probably stay with LTS releases for servers because it doesn't involve 4 updates and they can be more certain that anything running on it won't have issues with 4 different upgrades09:19
VespianAnyone know why Cinnamon uses so much RAM? I have very few applets running in it and it's using 395 MB of RAM.09:19
sgo11DJones, ok. got it. my server will stay with LTS version and my desktop will update to 14.10 then. :)09:20

Ankoranwhatever comes with the install of ubuntu09:30
Ankoranim guessing unity09:30
krzkrzwhat does ps aux | grep cron return for you guys?09:30
VespianAnkoran: Both come with it.09:30
krzkrzdo you see crond running?09:30
Ankorani dont remember selecting anything09:30
VespianAnkoran: Does your desktop look bare or does it have all kinds of icons and such?09:31
Neo31what's the package for locale configuration?09:31
VespianAnkoran: Then you're likely in GNOME.09:31
Ankorani just have no idea what this is usingto configure the wireless as is09:31
Ankoranthere is no wpa_supplicant configuration file and /etc/network/ineterfaces doesnt have wlan009:31
cfhowlettNeo31, terminal time: dpkg -l | grep locale          will tell you09:32
Ankoranwifi works just fine dhcp but i run a few services that use port forwardingand its a bugger to have to change that all the time09:32
VespianAnkoran: Ctrl + Alt + t and execute: nm-applet09:34
VespianAnkoran: That's the default GNOME Network Manager application.09:34
Ankorannevermind i found it in the network list when i selected my AP i clicked edit and its all in there to assign stuff for ipv4/609:35
Ankoranbut thanks09:35
VespianAnkoran: I also advise that you do Ctrl + Alt + t and execute: /usr/bin/software-center09:35
Ankoranfor what?09:36

Ankoranim updated and customized09:36
Happzzi have win8.1 installed on disk1 and i'd like to put ubuntu on disk2 (two separate physical disks)09:36
Happzzi dont want to mess with dual booting and whatever. i'd rather just tell the bios which disk to load every time09:36
nusrhow can i run a bash script? what file extension do i use for ubuntu? the script runs when i input line by line into gnuplot, but when i try to cat <filename.gp> | gnuplot it says data file unreadable09:37
cfhowlettHappzz, install but skip the bootloader09:37
Happzzwindows is already on disk1 and running fine. how do i go about installing ubuntu on disk2 without accidently touching disk1 at all - not the data and not the bootloader there09:37
VespianAnkoran: Are you now? Perhaps you should do Ctrl + Alt + t and execute software-properties-gtk and then enable Canonical updates and also check your drivers out too. Ahah09:37
Happzzcfhowlett im really asking how to, not what to :)09:37
Ankoranalready done Vespian09:38
Happzzand i guess there needs to be a boot loader for ubuntu as well, just on a diff disk, no?09:38
Ankorani have also been using linux since 199309:38
AnkoranI have just never used wireless with it before a month ago09:38

cfhowlettHappzz, you could install the bootloader to ubuntu disk ...09:40
Happzzwhen/where do i choose that?09:40
wildwindcfhowlett: btw, why have you suggested edubuntu, does it have pxe preconfigured?09:41

Happzzim sorry for annoying with this, im just not going to be able to come and ask while doing it for real ;)09:43
Happzzso i have to understand first.09:43
wildwindubuntul0ver: have you tried the built-in utility, baobab?09:43
cfhowlettHappzz, nope.  but to be sure, you can disable disk1 at bios, right?09:43
Happzzi dont know?09:43
Happzzif i can, does this ensure nothing at all is written to it?09:44
cfhowlettHappzz, disabled disk1 = no disk1 so far as live session concerned09:44
Happzzperfect. i will try now. see you in a bit :p09:45

p01s0nhello all ,i am trying to share my block device exported over iscsi to multiple hosts10:46
p01s0nformatted device as GFS210:47
p01s0nhow can i mount it?Does it require corosync and other tools to mount this10:48
=== tcpman is now known as Guest41132
Walexp01s0n: you can mount GFS2 in non-cluster mode10:52
p01s0nWalex thanks so  with non clustered option (nolock) can i still share that between two hosts?10:53
Walexp01s0n: depends. clustered mode means that among its users one is the "active" one, but you can mount it shared without its clients being in cluster mode.10:59
tony_hello everyone11:00
Walexp01s0n: GFS2 supports concurrent writes without problems with the right options (but they are slow). It is the systems mounting it that may not be able to work together.11:00
Walexp01s0n: put another way the lock manager and the cluster manager have completely different roles.11:02
Walexp01s0n read carefully gthe fully the paragraph beginning "The GFS requires fencing" in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GFS211:04
p01s0nWalex : i am trying to achieve a shared file store for my webservers but our SAN supports only iscsi.So i am trying to use a file system that supports sharing file.tried using (lock_nolock) with this it can mount block device across nodes but contents are missing11:05
Walexp01s0n: that's a different problem...11:05
Walexp01s0n: if there are multiple clients writing the distributed lock manager is necessary to handle access to the journal as mentioned in the Wikipedia. This needs to be clustered itself in case of client restarts. Then perhaps the client themselves need to be clustered if they cannot work together.11:07
Walexp01s0n: however "missing" content most likely is due to *caching*.11:08
Walexp01s0n: suppose that you have client A, client B, and server X with the GFS2 block device.11:09
Walexp01s0n: client A updates a file. When does client B "sees" the update? It could be several seconds later, as the update may be cached in RAM on client A, if the application does not use 'fsync' or similar.11:10
Walexp01s0n: so in your case you must use the DLM, rather than 'nolock', and ensure that applications use 'flock'.11:10
Walexp01s0n: but the overall issue is that you are trying to use a filesystem as a shared remote database. This can be made to work but perhaps a shared remote database would be a more natural backend.11:11
raskelhello, i have ubuntu 14.04 which is LTS. should i upgrade to 14.10 or i should wait for 15.04?11:12
p01s0nWalex : thanks, so for DLM to work i need to configure CMAN and other cluster management tools .I thought it will be simple as formating with GFS2 and mounting across multiple nodes11:13
anselanraskel: Depends on what you're doing, I guess11:15
k1lraskel, when you upgrade you need to do every release, besides the LTS to LTS upgrade which is 14.04 to 16.0411:16
anselanraskel: How important is stablility to you?11:16
k1lraskel, but if you dont want to upgrade all 6 months you should stay on LTS11:16
anselanraskel: I stay on LTS versions for installations I build, but only because I need to ensure hardware compatibility over a long term, and don't need "bleeding edge" features11:17
Walexp01s0n: as that Wikipedia paragraph says, that workish except at restarts. When a node crashes and restarts it tries to replay the journal, which is a bad idea if there are other systems.11:17
streulmaif someone asks some help with the new Macs (running newer EFI), I can help with setting up a Linux only boot. There is some problem with the new EFI not detecting the EFI file of Ubuntu.11:18

wildwindServerSage: yes. Nautilus (or whoever) does it somehow12:39
ServerSagewildwind: The blkid portion gets the label of the drive, putting that in `` (these are the backticks to the left of the 1 on your keyboard) executes the blkid portion and uses it as an argument for pmount.12:40

wildwindBut things started to get complicated. I'll have to deal with different partitioning (sdb1 vs sdb2 vs sdb) and probably different device names (sdc etc.) I hoped there is some API in that I can just call from console.12:51
ServerSagewildwind: I think you might want to ask yourself why you are doing it the way you want to do it.12:52
ServerSagewildwind: And learn about partitioning.  sdb is not a partition.  sdb1 and sdb2 are.12:53
EriC^^wildwind: earlier one doesn't work, use if you want i guess sdb1=$(blkid -s LABEL /dev/sdb1 | grep -o \".*\" | sed 's/\"//g') && sudo mkdir /media/"$sdb1" && sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/"$sdb1"12:54

ServerSageflipapy: Huh?13:03

wildwindServerSage: I often do different things with USB drives. Sometimes I just mount them, sometimes I insert them, get an image, write another image, then mount, test, unmount etc. So automount is not convenient for me. Mounting with GUI isn't convenient either due to constant keyboard/mouse switching.13:10

usrb1nHello guys. I am using the following command to find some files recursively: grep -r -i --include="*.php" "Step 1 - Check Stats 0" ./   . My issue comes because the found files are "snapshots" from the same file on different parts of the development. I need to use somehow wc -l in order to identify the path for the file with more lines (which should be the last one)14:02
usrb1nI have tried to add | wc -l14:02
usrb1nBut  it does not make any change14:02
Piciusrb1n: have you considered using find in conjuntion with grep?14:03
usrb1nPici: Also tried that. find . -name "*.php" | grep -i "Step 1 - Check Stats 0" | wc -l14:04
usrb1nNo results at all here14:04

ikoniadon't redo it14:08
Piciusrb1n: find just outputs filenames, so that won't do. you'd need to modify the find command to filter for the production files, but something like this will work: find . -name "*.php" -print0 | xargs -0 -I {} grep -H "Step 1 - Check Stats 0" {}14:08
ikoniacheck / verify that the status is as that guide suggests14:08
iggymydogummmm how do i do that?14:09

cfhowlettiggymydog, nice14:40
ikoniaoupty: because your whole machine depends on that package database, and to list dependencies, you shouldn't modify anything14:40

ikoniaoupty: your welcome to think I'm wrong, however please don't offer that bad advice to people14:42

j0hnskot1Ben64: Hehe, thank you very much! I'll try it! Can you give me a quick tip of what i messed up here?14:49
j0hnskot1Ben64: in case i mess it up again so i can fix it14:49
Ben64j0hnskot1: you have some weird kernel and i don't see a normal headers meta package for it. you need the headers for whatever kernel you're running in order for a module, like the nvidia module, to be compiled14:50
Ben64so i had you install the specific headers for the only lowlatency 3.16 kernel i see in trusty14:50
ubottuXxIleniaxX: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».14:51
j0hnskot1Ben64 oh ok. But this happened with the 3.13 kernel too. That's why i updated to 3.1614:51
j0hnskot1Ben64: Well, i hope it works now! Thanks again!14:51
Ben64which means... i need to update my super awesome nvidia fixing line to account for that possibility14:51
j0hnskot1Ben64: hehehe, that's right14:52
gansteedwhat is the best solution to virtualize a windows guest in a kvm+qemu? I need a better graphics performance14:57
Ben64sudo apt-get install build-essential dkms linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-headers-$(uname -r | sed s/-[a-z].*//g) linux-headers$(uname -r | sed s/^.*[0-9]\-/-/g)14:57
ikoniagraphics performance will be a problem14:57
ikoniaas it uses a virtual graphics card14:57
Ben64in case anyone cares, that should prepare any ubuntu system for nvidia install14:57
j0hnskotcrap,still the same :/14:58
gansteedis there some graphics-io software like virtio14:58
Ben64j0hnskot1: any results for the find command now?14:59
j0hnskotno,nothing again15:00
Ben64i think it's because of your kernel then15:00
j0hnskotBen64: i should mention that i installed nvidia-346 as nvidia-graphics-driver-346 because it didnt exist and i thought you made a typo. Is that the case? Or not being able to install the specific package means something?15:01

railsraiderHi I am trying to run an upstart file when a shared folder is mounted on virtulbox, how can i make sure the upstart runs AFTER the drive was mounted15:13
ikoniaupstart should be run at init15:13
ikonianot on trigger15:13
railsraiderit does, but the mounted drive is not ready15:13
ikoniarailsraider: then change the dependencies order15:13
EriC^^railsraider: maybe add if df | grep -qs /path/to/mountpoint; then .....; fi15:14
railsraiderany other suggestions on how i can run it , i tried to add start on block-device-added15:14
railsraider and also tried this start on local-filesystems15:14
ikoniaa udev rule?15:15
railsraiderits still not running because the folder does not exists15:15
ikoniathat can respond to triggers15:15
railsraideri figured a shared folder would act the same?15:15
railsraiderbut it doesnt15:15
ikoniano because the shared folder is not really a device trigger15:16
ikoniait's a userspace mount15:16

ikoniakoss: nothing to do with this channel15:16
railsraidervirtualbox is mounting it like a network drive15:16
ikoniarailsraider: virtual box uses it's own internal method to present drives15:17
railsraiderthe point is that its not mounted yet15:17
railsraiderif iadd what EriC^^  suggested would that not halt the system?15:17
ikoniaI think you are approaching it wrong15:18
EriC^^railsraider: put whatever you want to run inside the if15:18
ikoniaI don't think upstart should be doing this, but if you MUST use upstart, just put a depend resource on that script on a specific file system15:18
EriC^^that will just check if it's mounted or not15:18
railsraiderin the upstart file ?15:18
ikoniaso it will not run that script until that file system is available15:18
railsraideri’ll give it a try15:18

DF3D2but my interface still isnt pulling the Ip I assigned staticly15:33
ikoniapulling the IP ?15:33
ikoniait's static, it doesn't come from anywhere15:34
EriC^^sudo ifconfig <interface> down && sudo ifconfig <interface> up ?15:34
kraftbDF3D2: Using "ifconfig" will set the IP for a short time15:34
ikoniaEriC^^: no15:34
daftykinsdid you hand edit the interfaces file?15:34
ikoniait's controlled by network manager15:34
ikoniaupping/downing the interface does nothing15:34
kraftbbut soon it will get reset to the settings defined by the network manager15:34
kraftbwhat do you mean by: you are not using network manager?15:34
DF3D2rebooting didn't help either15:34
daftykinsnone of you have stopped to ask if this is a server thus rendering NM irrelevant15:34
DF3D2and my /etc/network/interfaces is correct15:34
DF3D2THIS RIG is not a server15:35
ikoniayou should not be using /etc/network/interfaces15:35
DF3D2but i get the same behavior on ubuntu-server on my other rig15:35
ikoniaremove all that stuff you put in and use network manager15:35

DF3D2my network interfaces file has: iface eth1 inet static15:36
DF3D2and then all the correct info after that15:36
compdocwhat abouit eth0?15:36
DF3D2i don't have an eth0, just eth115:36
ikoniaDF3D2: remove the mapping data from /etc/network/interfaces15:37
DF3D2according to ifconfig -a15:37
DF3D2ikonia: okay15:37
DF3D2even the lo info ?15:37
compdocDF3D2, have you added or removed interfaces? you might look at your /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules15:38
DF3D2apparently it changed from eth0 to eth115:39
DF3D2i commented out the old entry15:39
mcphailDF3D2: is your interface set to "auto" in /etc/network/interfaces?15:41
DF3D2mcphail: yeah15:41
DF3D2fixed it15:41
DF3D2with compdoc suggestion15:41
DF3D2thanks compdoc15:41
DF3D2the question still lies why changing network stuff requires a reboot now15:42
DF3D2it's because im not using network-manager?15:42
compdocI tend to reboot15:43
daftykinsi figured you meant server before. server hasn't worked properly on a networking restart for ages15:43
daftykinsyeah, true reboot is the only way to confirm settings anyway15:43
compdocI like to make sure my chnages survive a reboot15:43
mcphailDF3D2: it shouldn't need a reboot. You mentioned above you were using "ifup eth0" but your interface had switched to eth1...15:43
DF3D2daftykins: I have a server also with the same behavior15:43
DF3D2mcphail: I had used ifup eth115:43
DF3D2i know how to check ifconfig -a :-P15:43
DF3D2this happened because I changed mobo's15:44
daftykinsnot seeing eth0 should've been a *MASSIVE* warning sign15:44
DF3D2and the udev rule pointed to the old mac address15:44
DF3D2daftykins: well on my server rig the first of the 2 gigabit nics is called em115:44
DF3D2and the other is15:44
DF3D2so .....15:44
daftykinsbut we're not talking about that one right now15:45
DF3D2oh well it's fixed now :-P easy enough15:45
compdocDF3D2, btw, with /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, you can delete the lines at the bottom that mention your interfaces, and reboot, and the system is supposed to rebuild those lines15:45
DF3D2compdoc: ahh good info!15:45
DF3D2I just commented out the old mac addr one15:46
DF3D2it had already added the new one15:46
compdocthats fine too15:46
DF3D2I should have mentionedi n the beginning I installed a new mobo15:46
DF3D2:\ my fault15:46
compdoconce you edit the file manually, it should keep your changes15:46
DF3D2I just thought as long as /etc/network/interfaces was correct15:46
DF3D2it would work :-P15:47
compdocOSes are complicated beasts15:47
DF3D2true that15:47
DF3D2atleast linux you can swap a mobo without reinstall15:47
Eggs_DF3D2: some simpler OS's can just use that file, like arch15:47
DF3D2Eggs_: ahh I see15:48
DF3D2I have tried to use arch but nothing ever worked right with uefi15:48
DF3D2too many issues15:48
DF3D2I have arch on a small atom server in a datacenter tho and it works well15:48

=== beamboom is now known as BeamAway
CoC_towlieDF3D2, Arch is way simpler then ubuntu15:49
DF3D2Eggs_: right I installed arch from scratch the other day on my new ZFS nas, and it worked with uefi and then i rebooted it and it wouldn't boot anymore15:49
compdocubuntu is much better, tho :)15:49
DF3D2it was working, then just stopped for no reason, so i gave up on it15:49
Eggs_DF3D2: was that with ZFS as the root partition?15:49
DF3D2so now i have ubuntu-server on it15:49
CoC_towlieonly thing is that things might break since on rolling release15:50
DF3D2Eggs_: No, ext4 for root, 18TB of storage in a raidz215:50
Eggs_DF3D2: strange, you got zfs working on ubuntuserver now? thats what im running on15:50
DF3D2Eggs_: yeah15:50
DF3D2it's very easy there is a repo15:50
DF3D2and it's just a kernel module15:50
DF3D2I have a 6x3TB zfs raidz215:50

DF3D2been using it for several years on ubuntu15:51
mcphailDF3D2: might need to give it a try. Playing with btrfs for the time being15:52
DF3D2I havent used bt rfs but i'd never stop using zfs15:52
Eggs_DF3D2: much more powerful than mine, ive just got a dualcore i3 and 8gb of ram, seems to work ok, ram gets capped out though with 20tb of storage15:52
DF3D2EPIC epic epic15:52
DF3D2Eggs_: nice I plan on adding 8x3tb more eventually15:52
Eggs_mcphail: ZFS on linux is much more mature than btrfs, hopefully you will find it less error prone15:52
DF3D2need to buy 2 more adaptec 1430 AAR SA cards first tho15:52
Eggs_DF3D2: im at the max capacity for my mobo, i need to get a LSI JBOD card or something similar if i want to upgrade15:53
mcphailEggs_: i've always worried the Linux implementation would be buggy compared to Solaris. I remember the BSD version used to crumble quite easily15:53
kraftbOk. Finally found the issue. The kernel options "nomdmonddf nomdmonisw" from /etc/default/grub.d/dmraid2mdadm.cfg where desturbing my now-mdadm raid115:53
DF3D2Eggs_: yeah I have 6 mobo ports, and 1x Adaptec 1430 AAR SA or something raid/JBOD card and I just use it for JBOD obviously. the guy I bought the ram/mobo/cpu just gave me as well as a nice 2U case just cause.15:53
DF3D2the adaptec card works great15:54
kraftbIt was dmraid before (just for testing - I had problems with dmraid back in '04) since then I always used mdadm (like before '04 :)15:54
DF3D2has 4 ports15:54
kraftbbut it seems dmraid still is somewhat buggy15:54
kraftbOn tuesday I just lost a whole directory without ever seeing it again15:54
DF3D2kraftb: zfs man15:54
DF3D2u can't beat it15:54
Eggs_mcphail: ive been running it for over a year now and ive had zero errors, its great because the info about the disks is stored across multiple sectors on all disks so it never corrupts15:54
kraftbI use xfs since about 10 years. When I switched from gentoo to back to ubuntu I stayed with xfs15:55
kraftbas it is developed by SGI and quite stable15:55
Eggs_DF3D2: I upgraded from a 6port mobo to an 8port as it was cheaper than the LSI card lol15:55
kraftbwhats zfs good for?15:55
DF3D2Eggs_: the guy who sold me my server shit and gave me the adaptec card said he doesn't like LSI15:56
Eggs_kraftb: its great for cheap disks, its got a hash table that checks the data vs bitrot15:56
DF3D2good news is a matching adaptec card is $15 on ebay15:56
DF3D2 so I can add more ports for cheap15:56

OerHeksBazyl, that changing to the top panel is called global-menu, you can disable that16:50

I'm using Ubuntu 14.10 and I am having a problem with my graphics (video), which is apparent while playing videos or displaying quickly changing graphics - looks like problem with display sync - for a fraction of a second, part of the screen is displaying the new frame, while part is still displaying the previous, apparently.18:23

It takes much more time to both shut down and boot up; hibernation is really fast, even on that ancient hardware (Win8.1 wakes up in around 25 secs from power button press, with 10 seconds to reach GRUB, so not bad).19:02

AlexQwildwind: The default shutdown in Windows 8.1, I think it's called 'hybrid'.19:05
wildwindAlexQ: Oh yes.19:06
_abc_Quick shutdown means, do not spend 3 minutes doing nothing obvious then stopping the shutdown process with a modal popup asking me if I really want to shut down, because I really want to, and I was hoping it was shut down already by then.19:07

AlexQEriC^^: Apparently, it also does not close filesystems on local drives.19:15
EriC^^AlexQ: ah ok, yeah it's a sort of hibernate without saving the programs19:15
AlexQsort of a partial hibernation.19:17
EriC^^it's satan's shutdown19:17

VespianAnyone here familiar with accessing data from a serial device? http://pastebin.com/hQfEuGFE19:23
_abc_Vespian: baud base is not what you use as speed19:25
_abc_Vespian: try 19200 and 960019:25
_abc_19200 9600 and 115200 are the most used speeds.19:25

ralph4100I have a server running ubuntu 12.04 ... it has python 2.7.5 on it. I'd like to update it to python 2.7.8 or, alternatively, have python 2.7.8 available for virtualenvs to use ... have not been able to identify whether multiple versions of python 2.7 can exist and if so, how?19:26
VelhoP4_I just noted a deficient translation in the apt-get manual. the portuguese text didnt make sense, so i checked the english manual to understand. How can I report it?19:27
Vespian_abc_: Still no results.19:27
Vespian_abc_: Hang on, in dmeg I'm getting all kinds of failure messages. I'll paste bin.19:28
_abc_technically, if I upgrade any normal user mode package in ubuntu, it should not pull in a new kernel as a dependency, right?19:29
EriC^^_abc_: if you upgrade it can't pull anything new or remove anything i think19:31
EriC^^_abc_: unless you run dist-upgrade19:31
_abc_Okay, thanks.19:31
Vespian_abc_: http://pastebin.com/0YSvDiDj19:31
_abc_Vespian: set no handshake in screen19:32
_abc_Vespian: use something other than screen for this. minicom should work. Select no handshake.19:33
Vespian_abc_: I don't like the UI of minicom. I'll use cutecom instead.19:34
trismVelhoP4_: in: man apt-get; ? the manpage is in the apt package, so you could report it in ubuntu with: ubuntu-bug apt; it is probably unchanged from debian though19:34
_abc_whatever. Select no handshake and try the baud speeds in turn one by one, in each new speed, press enter.19:34
_abc_See if you get an answer.19:34
_DeLa_hi there19:34
=== CyberJacob|Away is now known as CyberJacob
_DeLa_this question might seem very naive to most of you, but I'll ask it anyway: is it possible to infect once ubuntu 14.04 based pc with any kind of malware by simply pluging in an infected usb stick and do nothing exept open some png-images files from the usb stick?19:36
VelhoP4_trism, so the source is debian? i checked other parts of the manual, the portuguese version in very complicated to read. Ive noticed that the english version is nice and simple. The translations seems to be done by google translate...19:37
_abc_No _DeLa_ , unless the usb stick was manipulated and is now more than a usb stick.19:37
BluesKaj_DeLa_, or it cam affect any windows installs on your network, or so I've heard19:38
ikeboyI can't change my grub settings; when i edit them and run sudo update-grub, nothing happens19:38
ikeboyanyone know why that can happen?19:38
drkcan someone help me with some sound issues19:39
_DeLa__abc_: BluesKaj: thanks for your answers19:39
drki can't listen to music via headphones19:39
drkwhen I plug them out everything works fin19:39
trismVelhoP4_: well, the source is in ubuntu too, it's just one of those things that should also be fixed in debian and then filter back into ubuntu. I'm sure they would be very happy to get a better translation, and an ubuntu bug would be a good start either way19:39
hikenboot_ServerSage, do you know how to enable the loggin in ndb...I used the transactionlog = /var/log or transactionlog = /var/log/nbd.log and put it in the generic section but it doesnt seem to create a log19:39
BluesKajmake sure there's no #in front of the lines you're editing, ikeboy19:40
ikeboyit's not that19:40
ikeboycould my grub be installed in the wrong place or something?19:40
_abc_Vespian: one more thing: there is no guarantee the sim card reader uses a plain ascii protocol.19:40
ikeboythe file is here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9371580/19:41
ikeboyand grub doesn't start automatically, I need to press enter to start ubuntu19:42
rago@drk I had the same problem, go the sound settings and increase the volume for your head/ear phone19:42
_DeLa_my question had the following background: today, I plugged in an usb stick to transfer a few png files whose owner (windows user) later told me that the stick was probably infected...at first I didn't worry of course, but then I remembered that around the time of plugging in the stick there was wine window openend stating some kind of update....wine itself wasn't opened but the window was deifinetly there....so I was quite scared...what happened? maybe19:42
_DeLa_there was some autorun on the usb stick that resulted in the wine window?19:42
drk@rago, I did that and nothing changes19:42
BluesKajikeboy, when you update grub is there any output?19:43
trismVelhoP4_: you might also want to talk to the people in #ubuntu-doc they might be able to help you out19:44
VelhoP4_trism, thanks friend19:44
_abc__DeLa_: I don't know what you did, and yes, wine should not run when you stick in a stick. But autorun is not interpreted by ubuntu normally.19:46
ed67543hi, can I connect to computers (both running mint kde) with hdmi cable(Ineed to transfer large files)? I have a cable that says "hdmi high speed with etherner" ?19:46
_abc__DeLa_: So it can be a manipulated usb stick too.19:47
BluesKajikeboy, that url is not what asked you about19:47
_abc__DeLa_: Manipulated by a virus or by someone19:47
ikeboyBluesKaj: you asked for output on update-grub, right?19:48
_DeLa__abc_: should scanning my whole system with bitdefender or clamtk put me on the safe side?19:48
ikeboywhat command should i run?19:48
krasnayarskIf I wanted to create a virtual machine to test a modification of my installation, to see if what I can expect if I actually made the changes to my computer, how would I create the virtual machine? Would I need to make a copy of my installed system to an empty partition? I am new to this so bare with me.19:48
BluesKajikeboy, ok got it now ...exactly what are you trying to edit in grub?19:50
ikeboythe last line was supposed to make grub start ubuntu without input, but my grub just waits until I press enter19:50
krasnayarskMaybe I should ask in Linux.19:51
_abc__DeLa_: maybe. Yes you should do that. But I would look in syslog where wine should have left a mark. Scroll or search for about the wall clock time when it happened.19:52
confreyhi everybody19:52
in_deep_thoughtcan someone give me help on installing ubuntu? I have the iso file on my usb stick, I put in in my computer, I booted it, I went to the bios, now I need to find the usb stick in the bios. Where Do I look? Under Select boot device, all I See is a virtual device I presume it uses normally. Where can I find physical devices?19:52
BluesKajikeboy just edit this line and change the number, GRUB_TIMEOUT="10"19:53
_DeLa__abc_: will do! thanks so much!19:53
ikeboychanged it to 1, but why would 1 work and not 10?19:54
confreyI need some help to manage rub, efi, and windows8; I've just installed 14.04, but I gt a fatal error about installing bootloader, and now I don't know exactly what to do; I started ubuntu manually from grub menu by a usb key, how may I install grub in uefi mode properly?19:54
confreyin_deep_thought, is your pc uefi or legacy stadard?19:55
BluesKajikeboy, the last last line is the problem,I think, just comment it19:55
_abc__DeLa_: Okay my wine does not log in syslog. Also you can search for files changed since then, using find ... -ctime -1 for files changed in the last day19:55
ikeboyI added the last line yesterday after coming here. It was supposed to fix the problem, but didn't19:56
ikeboyit wasn't the problem as i had the same problem before I added it also19:56
_DeLa__abc_:  could you please write the exact terminal command? ctime -1 doesn't work19:57
_abc_find ~ -ctime -1 searches changed files in your home dir. Likewise f.ex. ctime -1 /media/somevolume searches that19:58
_abc_There's also mtime and atime depending on what exactly you think you are looking for19:58

BluesKajthen it's probly uefi/bios20:01
in_deep_thoughtgood to know. so would I find the usb stick under “select boot device” and if so, why is there only 1 virtual drive listed there?20:02

_abc_Vespian: Interesting you brought this up, I also have a sim usb card reader buried somewhere in a box. I'll see what it does.20:03
EriC^^in_deep_thought: where?20:03
BluesKajin_deep_thought, in the uefi/bios do you see the boot section , is the hard drive listed or cdrom ?20:03
in_deep_thoughtIts under Ctrl Mgmt20:04
in_deep_thoughtthere is also PD Mgmt20:04
in_deep_thoughtVD Mgmt20:04
in_deep_thoughtand Properties20:04
BluesKajin_deep_thought, in most uefi/bios it's the second last section moving from left to right20:05
confreyin_deep_thought, I think you must press a key to access to boot menu at startup, in my lenovo I do that by pressing F12, a menu appears, with window bootloader, USB efi, nd other voices about IPV4 (NO MATTER) at that point I choose USB efi and PC starts from usb stick20:05

in_deep_thoughtconfrey: I have done that, thats how I entered this BIOS thing I am in. I need to figure out how to put the USB stick as the “boot device”, but all thats currently listed is a VD (virtual drive?)20:06
BluesKajin_deep_thought, guess not , you must have a booot section that lists the real drives on the pc not the virtuals20:07
confreyin_deep_thought, I can't help you better... sorry, each BIOS might have a different interface,20:07
in_deep_thoughtBluesKaj: I have PD management. That lists 4 Sata drives. But I see no usb drive20:08
BluesKajin_deep_thought, try the legacy mode20:08
in_deep_thoughtBluesKaj: is that something I would change on the BIOS im in? or a different button I press upon starting the comp?20:09
=== moresnow is now known as morsnowski

Piciventanitas: #ubuntu is for support with Ubuntu itself, if you are looking to chat, check out #ubuntu-offtopic or perhaps #ubuntu-es-offtopic21:12

aryHi. Some time ago i had a problem with libreoffice and was sayed that the problem was my video memory. So I bouth a new motherboard because my old mb passed out. But this new motherboard have Radeon 3000 integrated video chipset, and i have installed the fglrx from ubuntu repos, but those drivers are not so fine. I know that this integrated video chipset can be too much better then it is now. I think that the driver is not the proper driver. I21:30
aryt is using Xorg to render the video. How can I install the proper driver for this card?21:30
daftykinsary: your card is unsupported by fglrx21:31
daftykinsary: you have no choices, you're better off buying a simple cheap card to put in that system - the 3000 is not supported on any ubuntu version that is still supported21:31
LucaxSo let's start from scratch, I can build from source, install the tarball: cyphertite-full-2.0.4.tar.gz modified October 30 2014 or I can install from package, which would you recommend?21:32
Lucaxthe deb?21:32
daftykinsary: however if you are the one that came by the other day with this issue... have you booted without nomodeset with the open source 'radeon' driver yet?21:32
EriC^^Lucax: you need to install a lot of dependencies to get it to work21:33
daftykinsLucax: 1) repo is best 2) deb's second 3) other methods last - but none are supported by us21:33
EriC^^Lucax: type sudo sh -c 'echo "deb  https://opensource.conformal.com/packages/ubuntu/12.04/\$(ARCH)/ ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/conformal.list21:34

alexaI edited it, it looks now exactly as it looked like when I was using 12.04 version, except that it doesn't work now :(21:35
arydaftykins, the fglrx is installed and working. Compiz is working fine too. But some games are too low.21:35
arydaftykins, I booted with nomodeset and installed fglrx, and then i boot normaly21:35

dario_i have study math to the uni21:36
alexaanyone, please!21:36
EriC^^Lucax: ok, install them, then type sudo dpkg -i bla.deb to try again21:36
daftykinsary: i doubt that, as that device isn't supported. anyway, it's utterly rubbish and you should replace it. you have no driver options at all i'm afraid21:37

bubbasauresEriC^^, Installing from source is a outlier in it running in ubuntu from the repos, is all I'm saying, personally I would have steered them away with understand in the risk. ;)21:51
EriC^^bubbasaures: apt-get is not going to downgrade any packages it finds in the repo, so it will only pull what's necessary for the package to install, there is no risk21:51

imastupidguestChuck_Norris: Just pondering on something. Now if the problems with mounting guest additions is that it's already mounted (and mounting it was my goal) - then there's nothing to do, right? If it's mounted already it's mounted already - or am I missing something here?22:25
imastupidguestWhy would 'you don't have a problem to begin with' be a problem for anyone?22:25
Chuck_Norrisimastupidguest: idk, it was like your virtual cd/dvd drive was already in use or something like, so it doesnt wanted to mount any other thing -.-22:27

retroisprestoso far the upgrade to 10.04.4 is going well22:28
xanguaretroispresto: are you planning to upgrade to 12.04 as well? 10.04 desktop is no longer supported22:29
dontpetSo, PXE/Kickstart: does anyone know why the installer would ignore the %end after a %packages declaration in a kickstart config?22:29
retroisprestoxangua: yes, after 10.04.4 is done. An upgrade straight to 12.04.5 would almost definately brick the system22:30
dontpetit's driving me mad22:30
imastupidguestChuck_Norris: In my Ubuntu guest, it appears that guest additions is mounted. Is there some component of guest additions where it needs to be installed to the guest?22:30
bekksdontpet: Can you pastebin your entire config?22:30
dontpetbekks sure.22:30
dontpetthank you22:30
* retroispresto pets dontpet :322:31
xanguaretroispresto: as far as I remember you are using a limited resource machine, so why didn't you go with Lubuntu as you were told severald times yesterday? newer Ubuntu releases need more resources22:31
retroisprestoI have medicial conditions, i have patience to sit at a desk for 6 hours watching a progress bar move along22:32
Chuck_Norrisimastupidguest: mmm... i don't remember very well but if it's mounted then check /media... and see what inside that iso, and if there is an installer or something22:32
xanguaretroispresto: a fresh Lubuntu install would be faster that sitting 6 hours to uprade22:33
Jordan_Uretroispresto: While you're watching the progress bar move along, download and burn (or load onto a USB drive) Lubuntu 14.04 so that if things die you have rescue media on hand.22:33

retroisprestoi'm on an eee pc 4g surf22:34

imastupidguestOk. Sounds like a good idea. I think I see what's going on. My ubuntu install image was still configured to be what's mounted to /dev/sr0. I thought I had changed that setting; but, since the setting change was made while the guest was running, i tmay note have took.22:34

EvilRoeyHey all, I have BTRFS subvols mounted for /home, / and others.  How do I reinstall Kubuntu and leave /home as it is, while obliterating / ?22:36
bekksdontpet: did you try to remove the # ?22:36
Chuck_Norrisimastupidguest: how did you install "GuestAdditions" from ubuntu repos?22:36
dontpet@bekks  which one?22:36
bekksdontpet: The one in front of the %end22:37
dontpetlines 20-21 are my current desperate attempt22:37
* vifino pets dontpet22:37
dontpet@bekks lines 24-28 used to be uncommented22:37
dontpet(before lines 20-21 existed)22:38
bekksdontpet: maybe the whitespace after the @ breaks it?22:38
dontpethmm... I'll try that if my single line hack fails. thanks for the suggestion!22:40
Jordan_UEvilRoey: There is an option for doing that in the Ubuntu installer (that doesn't require use of subvolumes or separate partitions at all), though 1: I haven't used the feature (or Ubuntu's installer) for years and 2: I have no idea if Ubuntu's installer properly handles existing btrfs subvolumes.22:40
Jordan_UEvilRoey: You should however habe backups of any important data, no matter what you're doing.22:41
retroisprestomy eee pc 4g surf is my intellectual property22:41
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  well yes I have backups22:42
EvilRoeyjust wondering what the utility of BTRFS is if the installer cannot handle installating making sure not to nuke all the  subvols22:43
EvilRoeyhaha, installating.22:43
azizLIGHThow do i check what partition table a usb hdd has?22:44
Jordan_UazizLIGHT: sudo parted -l22:44
Jordan_UEvilRoey: I have no idea if it can or not. To check for the sanity of your proposal, what paths other than /home/ are you trying to preserve?22:45
EvilRoeyjust /home, actually22:45
EvilRoeyoh, and /archive (which is where I put media)22:45
EvilRoeyI have a few volumes that I hang off of /22:45
dreamcat4has anyone else been experiencing boot problems on the latest 14.10 kernel 3.XXX.25 ?22:45
dreamcat4or is it just me ?22:46
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  //home, /archive, /porn-for-the-greater-good, etc.22:46
dm7freekI have LDAP and just messed with my routing a bit. Now when I try to log in, I get a black screen followed by the same login screen. What's going on?22:46
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  and with BTRFS being this meta-container for volumes, I am concerned that if I remove it and re-make it in the partition table, it will wipe out those subvols that I did not want touched.22:46
Jordan_UEvilRoey: I expect Ubiquity's feature for installing over an existing system (overwriting only "system" directories) will work fine for you. No guarantees though :)22:47
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  thanks for ansewring22:47
EvilRoeyheh :)22:47
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  I was hoping to do a clean installation22:47
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  in the worst case, I'll jsut copy the data back frombackup.22:47
Jordan_UEvilRoey: Try it out and tell me how it goes, I'm curious :)22:47
Jordan_UEvilRoey: Note that i expect that the default will be to simply whipe the partition you're installing to, so please do read through the install screens carefully.22:48
EvilRoeyok, seems like we think alike on this :)22:48
EvilRoeyJordan_U:  btw.. so the context is that my current 14.10 system is failing,22:48
EvilRoeyand I think a fresh installation would fix that.22:49

bekksdreamcat4: Which kind of problems do you experience using 14.10?22:50
bekksTaking polls wont solve them ;)22:50
dreamcat4bekks: well the kernel moved from 3...24 --> 2....25 recently, and at that time it's not booting for me anymore22:51
dreamcat4but i need to check if its the new kernel, or some 3rd party software i've installed22:51
bekksdreamcat4: What exactly does it do then?22:51
dreamcat4i did a re-install, but same thing happened again22:51
dreamcat4boot hangs / blacnk screen22:52
Jordan_Udreamcat4: Have you tried booting in recovery mode/22:52
dreamcat4last thing on the log is 'makefile something runlevel S' it's all pretty strange22:52
dreamcat4Jordan_U: i've been able to use the recovery mode feature. but the failure cause is still a mystery to me22:53
dreamcat4it may be because i've innstalled some debian pkgs from 3rd party srcs, but the precise failure cause isn't very clear22:53
Bashing-omdreamcat4: Proprietary graphics driver ( not building ) ??22:54
__ravencfhowlett: read again: encrypted home is no server specific function22:54
Jordan_Udreamcat4: What happens if you select the recovery mode entry, then select the option to continue booting normally?22:55
dreamcat4it could be something to do with the graphics driver. i tried removing 2 such pkgs installed from stemos repos. but that didn't solve the boot issue22:55
Chuck_Norrisdreamcat4: what is your graphic card¿22:56
dreamcat4Jordan_U: i've just done that no on .23 kernel after re installing over the same partition (unchecked format box in the installer)22:56
dreamcat4the card is an intel GMA HD 3000 / 945 or something like that22:56
dreamcat4right not i've booted that way and am installing updates with software updater. i still don't understand what cruft was remaining for the problem to return since i re-installed from the live CD today22:58
dreamcat4that should have wiped out everything in /etc/ /usr and /var directories and grub too.22:58
dontpet@bekks single line hack failed. Trying the multiline with the whitespace removed per your suggestion now.22:59
dreamcat4time to reboot to finish installing the latest updates...22:59
dm7freekI am unable to log in via gui, only over ctrl-alt-F#    (using LDAP)   I have ldap auth log open. what's going on?22:59
dreamcat4ah-ha. it's booted properly this time23:00
dreamcat4now if i can just figure out which 3rd party software / repos NOT to re-install again (steamos most probably)23:01
dontpet@bekks same thing :(23:02
dreamcat4question: if i add a debian-based repository into my apt-srcs list (even if it's at the bottom of the list). will that cause debian pkgs to be pulled in be accident instead of ubuntu ones ?23:02
dreamcat4i suspect that was my problem here23:03

maestrojedI am trying to import a somewhat big sql file via CLI. I get an error I am not familiar with. The error looks to me to be a linux error more so than mysql. Can anyone help? -bash: xmalloc: ../.././builtins/evalfile.c:162: cannot allocate 783095624 bytes (1851392 bytes allocated)23:05
__ravendu -h on / gives me 50 gb but df -h gives me 300 gb used space. whats wrong here?23:07
Walex2__raven: nothing23:07
Walex2__raven: depends on filesystem, or perhaps you need to 'fsck'23:08
Walex2__raven: also use '-x' with 'du'23:08
__ravenWalex2: deleting files does not effect the free space at all23:09
Jordan_Umaestrojed: For some reason it look like bash was trying to allocate 783 MiB of RAM in one go, and failed. What is the exact command you ran?23:09
Walex2__raven: In that case 'fsck' will be quite necessary23:09
Jordan_U__raven: What files are you deleting and how?23:10
__ravenJordan_U: some big video files using rm on cli23:10
Jordan_U__raven: Is it possible that those video files are still open in some application?23:11
maestrojedjoshh20 a few. 1) On the MySQL CLI: "source filename.sql"; 2) On the linux CLI "mysql -u user -ppass dbname < filename.sql: 3) On the linux CLI "cat filename.sql | mysql -uuser -ppass dbname23:11
maestrojedSorry joshh20 that was meant for Jordan_U23:11
__ravenJordan_U: no thats impossible. never opened and this is a headless/no x system23:11
dm7freekI have an nfs automount and ldap. I cannot log in w the gui. i can log in via cli, but my automount fails. can anyone help me?23:11
Jordan_Umaestrojed: Triple check that you're running "source filename.sql" at the MySQL CLI ;)23:12
maestrojedJordan_U All day long buddy :)23:12
Jordan_Umaestrojed: I don't understand your last comment.23:12
maestrojedJordan_U the last two commands I listed give a different error23:12
maestrojedJordan_U mysql server gone away23:12
maestrojedJordan_U just joking. I have double checked a bunch.23:12
Jordan_Umaestrojed: The error message you posted looks a lot like what I would expect from running "source really_large_sql_file.sql" from *bash* instead of from an SQL prompt.23:14
maestrojedJordan_U interesting. I will ponder that and Quadruple check23:14
__ravenJordan_U: how to force a fsck on boot? i have no option to control the boot menu23:15
Jordan_U!fsck | __raven23:15
ubottu__raven: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot23:15
__ravenok tnx23:16
dontpet!ks.cfg | donotpet23:16
Jordan_U__raven: You're welcome.23:16
maestrojedI am sure I am on the MySQL CLI. BUT I think I just had success. I put bash into noprofile mode before entering the mysql cli. I got a few server gone away messages but it looks like it reconnected and recovered.23:16
dontpetwhoever manages the bot: !kickstart has a broken link.23:17

__ravenhopefully that will remain23:23
RobBurkeOneanything else apart from that? ;)23:23
Chuck_NorrisRobBurkeOne: Firefox for linux use an old version, and some webpages require you to use last or near lastest version of adobe flash plugin, last version of Chome for linux uses latest23:23
Jordan_U__raven: You should do a S.M.A.R.T. test, and maybe a memory test also to rule out failing hardware as a root cause.23:23
__ravenanother strange behaviour: exchanged ssh keys but sometimes key auth fails and it asks for password. whats that?23:24
__ravenJordan_U: yes thats an option...23:24
* Chuck_Norris got no flash plugin, just so webm videos .,.23:24
bubbasauresRobBurkeOne, You can use the pepperflash version chrome has is FF.23:25
