DarkcoinsHi, I got a VPS-provider which offers me to add several ips for each instance. I was wondering how I can go about using a different ip for each user running their own programs. Maybe I'm misunderstanding, and that all users have access to all ips? Also I guess I would need to configure iptables somehow? Any help would be greatly appretiated :)00:29
bekksDarkcoins: you cant.00:30
rahdukek1l: according to smart data, says disk is "OK" i do see some intermittent errors though due to "old age"00:30
delta9daftykins, it was displaying fine until i tried to install atmel-firmware00:30
Darkcoinsbekks: Would u care to elaborate? :P00:30
bekksDarkcoins: IPs do not depend on the users using them.00:30
rahdukek1l: Spin time is "Pre fail" I imagine this is bad00:31
daftykinsdelta9: great, now you tell us :P tried undoing your action?00:31
Darkcoinsok, so say I got a server with several ips. Would I need to configure iptables or do the rules already apply for all ips?00:31
delta9daftykins, i thought i did, should i try again?00:32
daftykinsdelta9: do you have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?00:32

bekksrahduke: Yes, yu need to run a full fsck (fsck -f) on the affected filesystems00:35
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: A webserver like apache2 can have virtualhosts configured to route differing sites to different NICs (seperate ips)00:36
bekksAvengerLives: Thats not exactly what he wants to do ;)00:36
rahdukebekks: drive wont even umount00:36
bekksrahduke: why not?00:36
daftykinsdelta9: for some reason the VESA driver is being selected, if you read the file i asked you to pastebin. can you confirm the device line by pasting into here just the single one from "lspci" ?00:36
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: I'm late to the convo, so I appologize, however one of the key reasons for having multiple NICS is load balancing00:37
rahdukebekks: volume busy, think its trying to empty the trash00:37
rahdukeguess i can reboot to shell and do it there00:37
delta9daftykins, come again?00:37
bekksrahduke: I think you are trying to unmount your / filesystem.00:37
rahdukena just my mount00:37
bekksrahduke: And the trash is never emptied upon umount.00:37
rahdukeoh maybe u were right00:37
DarkcoinsAvengerLives: What I wanted to do was running the same program on several users and routing the traffic from each program through separate ips.00:37
bekksDarkcoins: Thats not possible.00:38
Glitch1I'm having a problem with video playback on Xubuntu 14.04 32 bit, anything with a resolution over ~360x240 drops frames and stutters00:38
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: That isn't possible and it wouldn't net you any benefit anyhow00:39
delta9daftykins, i'm unclear as to what you want me to do00:40
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: depending upon the program and your vision, you can absolutely use the logged traffic across multiple INBOUND ips to differentiate users' traffic.00:40
daftykinsdelta9: confirm your device entry from 'lspci' - am i talking swahili again? :P00:40
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: multiple ips on the same system accomplishes a different goal (namely duplication, load-balancing, and backup/failover)00:41
DarkcoinsAvengerLives: It actually would net me a benefit as it is crucial the programs are accessible through only their separate ips :P Kinda wanted to tie a program running on one user to a certain ip. Sucks if it is impossible :(00:41
AvengerLiveswhy not route differing ports per user...?00:42
delta9daftykins, are you asking me to put up a pastebin for that command? i'm sorry but i just don't get what you mean by confirm device entry00:42
rahdukebekks: Ok tried that, now I'm beyond my depth http://pastebin.com/LfsPg6DM any ideas?00:42
daftykinsdelta9: as in confirm it to me... it's a device entry because it's an entry in 'lspci' 's output for a device, :/00:42
DarkcoinsAvengerLives: I must use a certain port for the program, and they need to have different ips00:42
DarkcoinsI guess it just isn't doable then :-/00:42
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: You could conceivably have the same program listen on multiple ports, depending upon the robustness of the configurability of said program.00:43
rahdukebad superblock is bad!00:43
EriC^^delta9: type lspci and check what VGA device you have00:43
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: hmmm, I'm stumped then.00:43

delta9daftykins, VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS780L [Radeon 3000]00:44
rahdukegnubie thats kinda clever00:44
DarkcoinsAvengerLives: The programs are part of a decentralized network and require the use of separate ips and ports in order to not get rejected by the rest of the network. Was just wondering if I could cut my costs using only one instance instead of several.00:44
daftykinsdelta9: this firmware you put on, was it in a package?00:45
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: does the VPS offer virtualization? that would consolidate the instances and allow for several NICS00:46
delta9daftykins, i just punched in sudo apt-get install atmel-firmware00:46

DarkcoinsAvengerLives: hmm, I don't think so, I'm using Vultr. I guess they want me to pay for several instances if I need several instances.. makes sense for them not to offer that :P00:49
daftykinsdelta9: just for fun, try booting an older kernel00:49
delta9daftykins, how?00:49
delta9daftykins, and i have confirmed that atmel-firmware is gone00:50
daftykinsdelta9: just before your OS boots, hold left shift, then go to advanced options and pick an older kernel00:50
daftykinsvia what method?00:50
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: Honestly, virtualization sounds exactly like your solution. Not to mention it is a robust failover as well as simple and snappy.  The spool up of similar instances on a single or a few machines is a breeze00:51
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: Migration also allows for seemless hardware upgrades.00:51
EriC^^delta9: which driver were you using for VGA?00:51
delta9daftykins, sudo apt-get remove atmel-firmware and then sudo apt-get purge atmel-firmware00:51
delta9Eric^^, no clue00:51
EriC^^delta9: type lshw -C video | grep driver00:52
AvengerLivesDarkcoins: I wish you the best of luck... I have to get back to work.00:52
DarkcoinsAvengerLives: So I would have an instance where I run VMs that have each their own ip? Sounds like the same problem all over again :P00:52

GerowenGlitch1: If there's no proprietary driver available for your card on Linux, then my guess is you'll have to deal with the stuttering.  If you install the package "mesa-utils" then run the command "glxgears" and maximize the window, I'll bet you get some silly framerate, and maybe even some noticeable tearing.02:36
GerowenGlitch1: I got 60 fps on my ATI Radeon HD 4200 with open source driver, but I'm not having the issue you are with videos tearing.02:37
Glitch1Gerown Why does the driver even matter though? There's no VADPU (or whatever the acronym is) on this card, and the computer plays 480p full screen videos without dropping a single frame on windows, and 720p videos also work fine if encoded properly.02:37
Glitch1Anyone else have any ideas? I've run 480p youtube videos (downloaded of course) in VLC on an 800Mhz Athlon with a Radeon 7500 under FreeBSD. The CPU I'm using now is almost 3x as fast, so the hardware is more than plenty powerful enough.02:45
Chuck_NorrisGlitch1: sudo apt-get install mesa-vdpau-drivers mplayer02:47
Chuck_NorrisGlitch1: then open a video with mplayer, it will run smoother than vlc02:47
Glitch1Chuck_Norris This card doesn't have any vdpau hardware.02:47
Chuck_NorrisGlitch1: sry then, but... try mplayer, it's more lighweight than vlc -.-02:49
Glitch1I have tried mplayer, along with html5 in FIrefox&pale moon and parole, they all perform identically02:50
aep000Does anyone have any experience with setting up mail servers02:50
Glitch1Xubuntu is the only distro I have had this problem with.02:50
aep000I need help setting up my server to automatically setup a mail server on multiple domains02:52
cryptodanGlitch1: what version of Ubuntu?02:55
cryptodanGlitch1: go back to Ubuntu 12.04 and use FGLRX02:56
Glitch1cryptodan I can't really do that. This is for the moment my only computer, and what's more, it's installed to a 32GB USB drive, since I don't have an HDD for it. Also, IIRC fglrx hasn't supported this card since before 2010.02:57
daftykinsGlitch1: err, why are you using such a relic?02:59
daftykinsto be quite honest you just need to get with the times. hardware moves on03:00
cryptodanGlitch1: its supported in in Linux MInt 13 which is based off of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and I use FGLRX on it03:00
Glitch1daftykins There is no reason to upgrade this hardware when it is more than capable of doing what I need it to do. It's more than capable of browsing the web and playing 480p video, which is what I use it for. That said, my desktop is a 4.4GHz 6 core monster, I have power when I need it.03:01
Glitch1cryptodan on a Radeon 7500?03:01
bynarieyea bro... get with the program dude!03:01
nahtnamHey! I have a small issue. The media keys on my keyboard arent working. They work for around 10 minutes after I reboot, but after I open a few apps, it stops working. Any know fix for this?03:01
cryptodanona Radeon 420003:02
daftykinsGlitch1: well good luck with that. i don't have the time to deal with those that want to use museum pieces.03:02
Glitch1cryptodan This card is about 10 years older than yours03:02
Glitch1daftykins thanks for the "help" then...03:02
daftykinsGlitch1: you get what you pay for. deal with it.03:03
Glitch1daftykins yes, what I paid almost $2000 for over 10 years ago. I don't need your "help."03:04
daftykinserr, right you paid so that in 10 years some volunteers could join IRC03:04
Glitch1daftykins I'm done with you. Your trolling is sub-par 0/1003:05

daftykinsi do not troll, i call out people wasting the channel's time03:06

daftykinsexcellent now we can get back to legitimate support03:08
Glitch1SO is there anyone here to help instead of making an ass of themselves?03:09
Ben64Glitch1: that attitude will not serve you well here03:09
Glitch1Ben64 I'm just trying to get some help with my Xubuntu install, not be told that I should go out and spend more money on something new when what I have now works. That said, the disrespect was targeted at a single user, not the rest of the IRC, sorry if you interpreted it that way, as it wasn't my intent.03:11
daftykinsunsupported card is unsupported.03:13
Chuck_NorrisGlitch1: for that old hardware (sigle core at 800 Mghz with no graphic acceleration support) use another desktop enviroment like "fluxbox" for instance, and/or use "Puppy Linux" which cames with an cut xorg server and it's very very lightweight03:14
Chuck_Norriswith a* cut xorg...03:15
SilverSlimerhey freedom fightes03:15
Glitch1Chuck_Norris I'm actually using Xubuntu 14.04, and the particular computer is a 1.8GHz Pentium M. The computer you are referencing is what I used as an example of what was sufficient to do what I need to do.

AleksejsHomeSilverSlimer: thanks :)03:21
SilverSlimerAleksejsHome as for the problem, do you at least get to boot to desktop03:21
AleksejsHomeSilverSlimer: yes03:22
xanguaAleksejsHome: SilverSlimer 15.04 is not supported yet03:22
ubottuUbuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) will be the 22nd release of Ubuntu due for release in April 2015. Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1. For more info see the announcement at  http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/142503:22
SilverSlimeroh i didn't even notice the version #03:22
AleksejsHomexangua: I see. Is it possible to install 14.* while I'm on 15.04 live?03:23
xmetali have just warmed up to KDE 4.x myself ... really i think 5.x (still not done yet anyway) is too buggy for "regular use"03:23
tewardAleksejsHome: no, you'll need a 14.x live to install 14.x03:23
xmetaljust my view03:24
=== pvoigt_ is now known as pvoigt
AleksejsHometeward: yeah, but how can I get 14.x on usb if I boot from that usb? I guess I need the 2nd usb but I don't03:24
tewardAleksejsHome: you would have to format the disk as 14.x from a separate computer, or a 2nd usb stick.03:25
xmetaluh how did you make THAT usb? ... dont you have some OS installed ?03:25
tewardAleksejsHome: how did you make your USB then, though?03:25
xmetalor another PC ...yes thats another option03:26
nahtnamAnyone know a solution to the problem I have?03:26
AleksejsHomeI made it yesterday while I was on work. I launched unetbootin and there was "kubuntu daily build" or something, I decided to pick it, that was my mistake03:27
xmetalah ha ... "daily build" means alpha really ... not the latest "stable, supported version"03:28
xmetal(that goes for any distro03:28
AleksejsHomexmetal: yeah :(03:28
xmetala "test of the too-be-released" version so to speak03:28
tewardAleksejsHome: remake the USB with Kubuntu 14.04 or 14.10 on it later at work - might help.  Until then you're kind of stuck.03:29
xmetalbesides i think KDE 5 is "still in development" anyway03:29
quazimodoubuntu 14, why doesn't my cups install have the lpr command?03:30
AleksejsHomesome insane idea: if I use unetbootin to install arch on hdd, then I boot from it, install unetbootin and remake usb to 14.* ? Will it work?03:32
AleksejsHomeafaik, there's no difference in arch live and install images03:32
daftykinsAleksejsHome: why not just install what IS on the flash drive?03:32
botanickillcan anyone help me figure out which linux video driver i need to be using?03:32

botanickillhow do i find that out via terminal03:33
daftykinsbotanickill: lspci03:33

EriC^^atop: how'd you install it the first time?11:01
atopNo, I used the installer with the driver from their website11:01
bekksatop: Ouch, that will break upon EVERY kernel update.11:01
Seveasatop: then you'll need to switch back to the non-fglrx driver and rerun it. After every kernel update.11:02
atopIs there a guide to switching it back?11:02
bekksatop: Uninstall all traces of your manual installation. Hopefully the .run from the website has an uninstall option.11:02
bekksThen, install the driver from the repos.11:02
Seveasatop: good luck :)11:03
atopHopefully this works11:03
Seveasatop: just moving xorg.conf out of the way should make Ubuntu use the default driver, which may not be as performant but will at least give you a gui.11:04

foxnet*from the repository11:10
cfhowlettfoxnet, get the source and compile11:10

kobidrifterHow about getting it straight from their site, there's a .tar.gz available.11:13
bekksfoxnet: you cant.11:13

cfhowlettfoxnet, 14.10?  9 months of support?  Install LTS 14.04 for 3 years of support and test install your game there.11:16
kobidrifteralso if you download the demo, it'll prove if it works on the new version11:17
cfhowlettfoxnet, or ask the game publisher to pretty please package their game for the 9 month lifespan of 14.10 ... good luck with that11:17

someone235bekks, So if I can't use PepperFlash I just can't use flash on linux?12:15
ikoniagrar: are you sure, remember this is 32bit packages12:15
bekkssomeone235: Thats it, yes.12:15
ikoniagrar: are you sure you are not using the 64bit versions and thus the 32bit ones will not be used any more as they are part of a dependency install that is now osbolete ?12:16
bibi234cfhowlett: yes I know but I'd like to get ride of the filename, is there an option to not display it? or maybe I can chain another command to only grab the first part?12:16
grarit doesn't say that any of those are 32 bit, anwyays, I don't have 32 bit VLC stuff12:16
ikoniagrar: personally - I'd remove them, you can always add them back12:16
ikoniagrar: it's clearly locked in a dependcy issue because of these packages12:16

Ben64grar: what ikonia said, also, the wine in the winehq ppa is much better/newer12:17
grarikonia Not having to install ~30 different wine versions is convenient beyond measure12:17
Foxnetmy system has been freezing at random times. Everything just stops and i hear audio looping (if any playing). I tried reinstalling but the issue persists. I read something called a kernal panic is this one those.12:17
Ben64one of the only times i actually recommend using a PPA12:17
ikoniagrar: I agree, you only need one12:17
ikoniagrar: play on linux doesn't change the wine dependency12:17
ikoniainfact, I don't think people should be using wine - but that is only personal view12:17
grarikonia Witht eh amount of regressions wine has I need several12:17
bekksFoxnet: Do you have keyboard LEDs?12:17
ikoniagrar: I do'nt believe that is realistic12:18
felon_if you use wine might as well have windows.12:18
grarikonia it did remove VLC and Clementine12:18
grarikonia I need one for Steam and 2 games on there, and 2 different version each for 2 older games that I play12:18
bibi234cfhowlett: I don't see such option, they say "The default mode is to print a line with checksum, a character  indicating  type  (`*'  for binary, ` ' for text), and name for each FILE."12:19
ikoniagrar: thats your call, I don't believe that is a realistic way to use your machine especially with wine and its dependencies12:19
cfhowlettbibi234, well, that's the official word then ...12:19
Foxnet you mean backlit of my keyboard. Yes it does but they are not on. They have not been on since I switched to ubuntu12:19
grarikonia Unfortunately Wine tends to have tons of regressions every release, so I'm kind of stuck with it12:20
bekksFoxnet: No. I mean keyboard LED, not backlight :)12:20
bibi234cfhowlett: is it possible to chain a command then?12:20
ikoniagrar: this is one of the reasons I don't think people should use wine12:20
cfhowlettbibi234, of course!  my bash fu isn't up to the task but ##bash would know12:20
grarikonia I would rather everything be native as well, unfortunately most developers would rather die in a car crash than either open source their decade old games, or port their newer ones to Linux12:21
grarikonia anyways it seems removign all of those packages fixed the dependancy chain, and I've reinstalled VLC, so let's just hope my system boots at the enxt restart...12:21
ikoniagrar: I understand your pain, thats why I see a dual boot system as the realistic option for the situation you are describing12:21

ikoniaekik: run sudo apt-get update first then try again and report back12:23
ikoniagrar sorry, you don't trust windows, but you do trust wine.....12:23
ikoniagrar: I'll leave you to work out your own solutions,12:24
grarikonia wine isn't a dozen gigabytes of code with thousands of backdoors that are claimed to be "bugs" every time one gets exploited12:24
ikoniagrar: yes it is12:24
ikoniait's maintained by a group of people that are no more/less trustable than microsoft12:25
Foxnetbekks, y does it matter?12:25
bekksFoxnet: Yes. When your system hangs - do they blink?12:25
grarikonia I trust them more than a company that has already proven it will do anything it takes to make a buck no matter the cost of computer users, and works quite closely with alphabet soup agencies. Also, the attack surface is a tiny fraction of what WIndow's has.12:26
ikoniagrar: up to you12:26
=== Mish|sleep is now known as Mish|Fruehstueck
Foxnetbekks, I haven't noticed that. Is it linux signalling me that it is screwed .12:27
grarikonia If I can't trust Wine, chances are I can't trust Canonical either, but if you don't draw the line somewhere, then you're stuck using your own assembly programs on a 486 with 8MB of RAM12:28
ikoniagrar: up to you12:28
bekksFoxnet: If they are blinking, you are seeing a kernel panic. If they dont blink, you dont :)12:28
grarikonia Well playonlinux has installed, so hopefully I don't have any more dep chain problems and hopefully my system boots next time. Thank you for your help, I appreciate it a ton.12:29
ikoniagrar: you fixed it yourself, so thank yourself12:29
FoxnetThanks for the info bekks, I didn't know that.12:29

ikoniaexisting emails won't get delivered....12:35
ikoniaexplosive: as they have already been delivered12:35
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you're not making sense12:36
White_CatI dont think you are understanding me12:36
ikoniaWhite_Cat: existing emails will already be delivered,12:36
White_CatI have some people using outlook12:36
ikoniaWhite_Cat: outlook is just a mail client,12:36
White_Catgot that?12:36
White_Catthey have their own world. and I dont care about that12:36
ikoniaI understand you have people using outlook mail client on a non-ubuntu platform12:36
KobiDrifterWhite_cat: you could setup ubuntu as a mail relay which thren forwards the old emails to exchange server.12:36
ikoniaKobiDrifter: it won't forward old emails12:36
ikoniaKobiDrifter: it doesn't know about old emails12:37
ikoniathey have already been delivered12:37
White_CatI dont care about old emails12:37
k1l_kotel: please put a "ls -al /boot" into a pastebin please12:37
KobiDrifterMeant old email addresses12:37
KobiDrifterIs outlook talking native exchange or imap?12:37
White_Catis it possible to set it up so that part of the emails are delivered to outlook while select others are delivered to the ubuntu server?12:37
ekikI managed to install finnish language after apt-get update, thank you!12:37
ikoniahow do you know it's even talking to exchange ???12:38
White_Catwell it handles calendars and such12:38
White_Catits the web service12:38
White_Catas in outlook.com12:38
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you'd need secondary MX routing, which is not trivial12:38
White_Catnot the outlook program12:38
bekksWhite_Cat: Either exchange handles all mails for that domain, or it doesnt.12:38
kotelhttp://pastebin.com/ukWtbJjD      here you are mate12:38
White_CatI feared as much12:38
KobiDrifterThats hosted not a Local client so you have no control12:38
bekksWhite_Cat: And you cannot make outlook.com deliver mails to your own mailserver acting as outlook.com. You dont own outlook.com12:39
White_Catbekks, not yet ;)12:39
k1l_kotel: ok so you have 4 kernel installed. you can remove at least 2 of them (the old ones) if you remove the kernel packages with apt-get12:39
bekksWhite_Cat: It never will :P12:39
White_Catwhat? you are saying I cant own microsoft in the near future? What is this sorcery :D12:40
KobiDrifterAgree with bekks will never happen. Need to have local server for this level of control12:40
k1l_kotel: so go with "sudo apt-get remove linux-image-3.13.........." you need to fill the .... with the actually package name you can let fullfill with the tab key12:40
=== sjefskoder is now known as Guest50011
bekksKobiDrifter: No. He needs to own that domain. That will never happen. :)12:40
White_Catso one possibility is having all mail arrive locally and then be forwarded to outlook.com?12:40
White_Catbekks no I own the company.com domain12:40
KobiDrifterWhy dont u just get ubuntu clients to talk to outlook.com via imap.12:41
White_Catwell not me but you get the idea12:41
bekksWhite_Cat: But you dont own outlook.com12:41
White_Catuser@company.com is delivered to outlook.com12:41
bekksWhite_Cat: Then where's the problem?12:41
White_Catso I have like 10 user@company.com emails that are delivered to outlook.com12:41
White_CatI want to create 2-3 of them that would be delivered to my local ubuntu server12:42
White_CatI have never done anything like this so I am unsure if it can be done :/12:42
=== Caroga_afk is now known as Caroga
KobiDrifterNope because it is not locL12:42
ikoniaWhite_Cat: it's not going to work12:42
bekksWhite_Cat: I guess the outlook.com setup is that all company mails for al accounts are delivered to the outlook.com servers?12:42
k1l_kotel: support please only in here12:42
White_Catyeah but they are all user@company.com12:43
k1l_kotel: dont delete stuff manually. remove the kernel packages so the system gets not spoiled12:43
KobiDrifterJusy checked and you can talk to imap-mail.outlook.com with fetchmail12:43
bekksWhite_Cat: And outlook.com works the way that you cant specify "usera should be on outlook.com, but userb should be elsewhere".12:43
k1l_kotel: see my message where i explained how you can remove old kernels12:43
White_Cathmm okay12:44
bekksWhite_Cat: So the answer is a clear no. You have to deliver all mails to outlook.com, and you can then use fetchmail to fetch them to your local server.12:44
KobiDrifterBut it sounds like white_cat needs to understand how SMTP works.12:44
White_Catbekks any new account on outlook.com costs money12:44
White_Catlocally it would be free12:44
Ben64White_Cat: its not gonna happen12:44
* KobiDrifter nods12:45
bekksWhite_Cat: And?12:45
Ben64White_Cat: you keep trying to ask the same question in different ways, the answer is always going to be no12:45
bekksWhite_Cat: Thats how they earn money. They arent the Red Cross :)12:45
White_Catbekks red cross also earns money12:45
bekksWhite_Cat: Red Cross doesnt charge your for helping you ;)12:45
ikoniathis has moved away from anything ubuntu related, so I think we should end it12:46
White_Catbekks they charge 0$ :p12:46
White_Catwell yes12:46
bekksWhite_Cat: If you dont want to pay outlook.com, setup your own mailserver for company.com and quit the usage of outlook.com12:46
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you have your answer, your stuck with outlook.com unless you change your provider12:46
KobiDrifterHeres a suggestion, what about a subdomain for those users? I did this for a support team obcr.12:46
kotel@k1l_  so to delete the two old kernels i have to sudo apt-get remove linux-image-3.13.0-32-generic + linux-image-3.13.0-37-generic?12:46
White_Catlike user@subdomain.mycompany.com?12:46
White_Catthat would do the trick12:47
KobiDrifterIf ur in control of the dns you can setup different MX records.12:47
ikoniaWhite_Cat: do you control the companies DNS ?12:47
k1l_kotel: yes. you can remove the + and it will delete both packages at once12:47
KobiDrifterI specifically keep dns away from our mail providers so we can stay in control ;-)12:48
bekksWhite_Cat: You'd still have to setup your own mailserver - and then it would be easy to migrate the 7 remaining users as well, which would safe you from administering different subdomains dor your users.12:48
k1l_kotel: and you can remove the linux-headers-.... files ,too12:49

sgo11hi, my laptop has optimus support, one intel card and nvidia card. After installing nvidia driver, I met three problems. if I use only the builtin monitor, everything works fine. but with external monitors: 1, my VGA can not rotate anymore. it works with intel driver before. 2, my UGA (displaylink usb graphic adapter) is no longer listed in xrandr -q output. By running its own test programm "make check", the test passes fine and monitor shows test images. 313:58
sgo11, I can not setup mulitple monitors in nvidia-settings, because it only shows X Screen 0 instead of LVDS/VGA etc...13:58
sgo11PS: I can enable VGA by xrandr command instead of using nvidia-settings.14:00

SkyriderHey golks15:08
quatroxHello Skyrider15:08
SkyriderI'm rather curious.. Is there anyway to launch / open applications through shell (remote connect from another pc) so it launches on the desktop, without share screening?15:09
quatroxssh -X15:09
SkyriderSo far, trying screen sharing.. but it's not properly working..15:09
SkyriderSometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.. quite annoying15:09
quatroxssh -X remote.host cmd15:10
SkyriderI'll try it out, thanks :)15:10
quatroxI use that a lot, since my laptop is very slow (but light weight)15:10
venicci_I need help. I've installed ubuntu to my old xp laptop (1.6ghz 1gb ram) but ubuntu keeps freezing...15:16
tewardvenicci_: try using lubuntu - those specs are kinda low for Ubuntu (which can be pretty heftyish on resources sometimes)15:16
tewardlubuntu or xubuntu15:17
Skyriderhdmi is no longer working15:17
venicci_teward: ah...I thought Ubunty didn't require that much... guess I was wrong again :(15:17
tewardvenicci_: http://askubuntu.com/questions/333795/what-are-the-system-requirements-for-each-flavour-of-ubuntu-desktop15:18
SkyriderHow does ssh -x work exactly?15:18
SkyriderI keep getting could not resolve hostname XXX <- with xxx being the command I used.15:18
Skyridername os service not known.15:18
tewardvenicci_: 'minimum' vs 'recommended', but... even then thats no guarantee - for low spec systems Xubuntu (XFCE) or Lubuntu (LXDE) are a little better, in my opinion15:18
venicci_teward: Allrighty then, I will try anything :)15:19
quatroxssh -X your.remote.host the_cmd_to_execute15:19
tewardSkyrider: -X enables X forwarding - -x disables it15:19
SkyriderI see15:20
parmiggianovenicci_: just as teward said, go with xubuntu or lubuntu. the former is a bit more convenient for the average user. a fresh install would be best... if that's complicated for you, you can install the package xubuntu-desktop (or lubuntu-desktop).15:20
venicci_parmiggiano: downloading it now. one other question... how do I create a boot usb stick in linux... (I'm in mint now on my desktop)15:21
cfhowlettvenicci, unetbootin15:22

elichai2Looking for more ideas15:42
EriC^^elichai2: ok, cool15:43
Skyridernow it appears to work? ..15:44
elichai2What do you say about coping the working Ubuntu from my HDD to the SSD and then puting symlinks in the HDD?15:44
Skyriderand when I close the laptop..15:45
Skyriderand open it again, screen stays black.15:45
SkyriderI see a few error messages disappearing within a second before the splash screen.15:45
SkyriderWhen I enter safe mode, screen seems to work.. but displays a error that needs to be submitted.15:45
SkyriderSomething about header and kernel?15:45
Ubuntu-user32i installed skype on ubuntu 12.04 and it didn't log into  the internet,  always giving me that  unable to log into  the internet15:46
EriC^^elichai2: didn't you install last time?15:47
EriC^^elichai2: it wasn't booting the ssd drive in uefi mode right?15:47
SkyriderI assume this is ATI driver related?..15:47
SkyriderBefore the update, nothing was wrong...15:47
Skyridereverything was working perfectly.15:47
elichai2And not from legacy either15:47
elichai2And I even tried using a /boot/EFI partition on my old hdd15:48
EriC^^elichai2: after you setup the efi on the hdd15:51
EriC^^elichai2: did you boot a live usb, chroot and install the grub package?15:52
sgo11I have both intel and nvidia cards in my laptop. Before installing nvidia driver, it uses intel driver. after installing nvidia driver, it uses nvidia. They all have some problems. How can I use the open source Nouveau driver?15:52
elichai2EriC^^ I runed 'grub-install:15:53
EriC^^elichai2: on the hdd>15:53
EriC^^what happened when you booted?15:54
elichai2I mounted the SSD and the HDD boot partition15:54
elichai2Got grub minimal instalation15:54
elichai2*minimal shell15:54
EriC^^elichai2: ok15:55
EriC^^elichai2: could you see the sdd from there>15:55
elichai2I think not15:55
EriC^^elichai2: i think you should give it a shot again16:03
elichai2Give what a shot?16:03
EriC^^elichai2: install the grub package after you mount /boot/efi , so it installs the necessary files in the efi partition16:03
EriC^^efi on hdd16:03
elichai2Mount both SSD and /boot/EFI, right?16:04
elichai2OK, although I'm thinking that my bios has some problems reading the SSD itself16:04
EriC^^well i think so16:04
elichai2(I checked and there are no badblocks)16:04
EriC^^but you booted grub16:04
EriC^^so it might be able to see the ssd16:04
elichai2Yeah, but grub on the HDD /boot16:04
EriC^^since it loads the gpt and msdos modules16:05
EriC^^yes grub might see it16:05
elichai2And I think I installed the grub on the hdd16:05
sgo11hi, http://paste.ubuntu.com/9500234/ in xrandr output, my "Screen 0" is incorrect. it should be 3000 (1920 + 1080) instead of 3840 (11920*2) because I rotate VGA1 left. how to fix the Screen 0 value? thanks.16:10
elichai2EriC^^: now i'm connected from the live usb16:10
elichai2so first i'll format my SSD and reinstall Ubuntu (with /boot/efi on the HDD)16:10
elichai2then i'll try chrooting16:10

IanWizardI'm on a fresh install of 14.10 with crypted home and swap.  /etc/crypttab has the cryptswap mapped to a uuid, but... it doesn't exist.  blkid gives a PARTUUID for the cryptswap partition (/dev/sda6), but no UUID.  As well, the UUID in cryptswap, is not in /dev/disk/by-uuid/16:53
elichai2EriC^^: here?16:54
IanWizardI can recreate the swap and give it a UUID, but to my knowledge, I can't assign a UUID to a partition that isn't formatted.16:54
IanWizardI tried using the PARTUUID from blkid, but it is in by-partuuid/ and not by-uuid/ so cryptsetup doesn't find it (obviously).16:55

ikoniain what way set it up ?17:52
ikoniawhat do you want to do on it ?17:52
HikaruBGikonia, I need few things: I need Web Server, Redmine Server + GIT17:53
jhutchinsHikaruBG: Where will it be hosted?17:53
keithclarkikonia, 'Filed to initialize the nvidia kernel module.  please see the system's kernel....'17:53
HikaruBGit will be hosted on my business server.17:53
ikoniakeithclark: ok - so if you do "lsmod | grep -i nvidia" do you get any results17:53
HikaruBGI need Phalcon PHP, and Java Server17:54
HikaruBGto suppoer multiple web sites17:54
ikoniaHikaruBG: so this is basic stuff, however things like a git server should not be setup without understanding it, if you want your code to be trusted/true17:54
ikonia"java server" what is "java server" ?17:54
keithclarkikonia, nothing17:54
ikoniakeithclark: ok, so there is your problem17:54
ikoniakeithclark: the nvidia kernel module is not loaded17:55
ikoniakeithclark: "sudo modprobe nvidia"17:55
ikoniakeithclark: what happens17:55
keithclarkikonia, nothing17:55
jhutchinsHikaruBG: A VPS implies remote hosting, it makes a big difference what provider you're using.17:55
ikoniakeithclark: no do "lsmod | grep -i nvidia" again, do you get any results17:55
keithclarkikonia, nothing17:55
ikoniakeithclark: ok, so can you do "uname -a" and please show me the output17:56
jhutchinsmodprobe has a verbose option.17:56
HikaruBGjhutchins, Thanks for the explanation17:57
keithclarkikonia, Linux keith 3.13.0-43-generic #72-Ubuntu SMP Mon Dec 8 19:35:06 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux17:58
ikoniakeithclark: how did you install the nvidia drivers ?17:58
keithclarkIt has been a long time....17:58
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto17:58
ikoniakeithclark: ok do "sudo insmod nvidia" what output do you get17:58
sgo11hi, http://hastebin.com/aleqacavif.vbs in xrandr output, my "Screen 0" width is incorrect. it should be 3000 (1920 + 1080) instead of 3840 (1920*2) because I rotate VGA1 left. how to fix the Screen 0 width value? thanks.17:59
keithclarkikonia, could not load module nvidia:  No such file....17:59
ikoniakeithclark: so it looks like you don't have the nvidia module installed17:59
ikoniakeithclark: I would suggest following the guide jhutchins just linked to, to get them installed18:00
jhutchinsikonia: again, use the -v option so insmod/modprobe show what they're (not) doing.18:00
ikoniajhutchins: personally I'm not bothered, I was just doing a dumb test18:00
keithclarkikonia, I am here, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia, but I don't know what to select here.  Very confusing18:05

keithclarkikonia, and how to install from command line?  Completely lost here.18:08
ikoniakeithclark: check the guide jhutchins gave you18:09
keithclarkikonia, I am.18:09
ikoniakeithclark: move /etc/X11/xorg.conf out of that directory and reboot and you'll get a basic Vesa drive desktop18:09
ikoniakeithclark: then you can use the gui tools18:09
hemlisanyone has ppd for CanonLBP2900B ?18:10
keithclarkikonia, there is no X11 directory18:10
ikoniakeithclark: /etc/X1118:10
venicciHello all thanks for the tips. It worked, I have succesfully installed lubuntu and am now on my laptop!18:10
keithclarkThere is no /etc/X11 directory18:10
venicciProblem occurred..: I cannot get my wireless to work (eventhough I have the drivers)18:10

=== liquid is now known as VoidMainFunction
keithclarkikonia, there is no file xorg.conf.  There are a few xorg.conf.xxxx18:12
ikoniakeithclark that seems unlikley if you have ever used the nvidia packages, there should be an xorg.conf18:12
keithclarkikonia, I don't know what to say.  It is not there18:13
ikoniakeithclark: what are the names of the xorg files that are there18:13
=== christmascookie is now known as sireedweeb
keithclarkikonia, xorg.cong.04302014 xorg.conf.backup xorg.conf.failsafe xorg.cong.dist-upgrade-xxxxx18:14

ikoniakeithclark: copy xorg.cong.04302014 to xorg.conf and lets use that as a template18:14
venicciI cannot get my wireless to work on my laptop, any ideas?18:14
keithclarkikonia, done18:15
ikoniakeithclark: open that file in a text editor you are happy to use18:15
keithclarkikonia, done18:15
ikoniakeithclark: there should be a line in there that says "Driver"    "Nvidia"18:16
ikoniakeithclark: find that line18:16
keithclarkikonia, found18:16
ikoniakeithclark: replace the word Nvidia with vesa18:17
keithclarkikonia, case sensitive?18:17
ikoniakeithclark: `use lowercase, but it really shouldn't matter18:17
keithclarkikonia, done18:18
ikoniakeithclark: save the file and reboot18:18
keithclarkikonia, rebooting18:18
ikoniakeithclark: to confirm the file should be saved as xorg.conf18:18
keithclarkikonia, It was saved as xorg.conf18:20
ikoniakeithclark: perfect18:20
keithclarkikonia, hmm, just a black screen18:21
ikoniakeithclark: give it a minute18:21
keithclarkikonia, (biting nails and waiting.)18:21
keithclarkikonia, nope, no hd activity and just black screen18:23
ikoniakeithclark: that suggests to me your problem is before X18:23
ikonia!nomodeset | keithclark18:23
ubottukeithclark: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter18:23
keithclarkikonia, I am so tempted to just throw this machine in the bin and go buy a new one.18:24
keithclarkikonia, how to do those changes when I have a black screen???18:26
ikoniakeithclark: you boot into the recovery shell18:26

jhutchins!tell venicci about wifi18:29
ubottuvenicci, please see my private message18:29
keithclarkikonia, ok, trying to reboot yet again.18:30
venicciah, so even with installed drivers and trying the fwcutter thingy and it not working... I should not look here for help?18:30
keithclarkikonia, black screen yet again18:31

Chuck_NorrisHZun: for code in {0..255}; do echo -e "\e[38;05;${code}m $code: test"; done18:47
keithclarkikonia, is there any way to install another version of ubuntu to help the repair?18:48
Chuck_NorrisHZun: showrgb18:49
keithclarkikonia, or how can I get my data out and restore this machine?  I guess I could just by a new machine with Wjndows and be done with all this crap18:50
keithclarkikonia, ok, no worries, I've decided to just scrap this machine and buy a new Windows machine.  I've never encountered video drivers in those machines before like this one.18:54
squintykeithclark:  might want to try booting from a previous kernel (if you upgraded to a newer one) from the grub boot menu to see if there is a potential problem with an updated kernel. also try renaming the xorg.conf to something else and reboot (could also try nomodeset again)  just a thought....18:55
keithclarkthanks squinty but I tried that stuff.  I just lost tax data from three years as well.  I hope my backups work!18:56
Chuck_Norriskeithclark: hey! take it easy, your data still there, you can get it back using a live usb or cd18:57
parsnipkeithclark: to backup data, my first thought is always to boot from a live Linux on a flash dirve.18:57
parsnipthough, hoepfully you didin't buy a peice of crap that doesn't boot from USB (windows store hint)18:58

colmackI checked all the terminals with ctrl-alt-f1 through f12 and none of those seemed to get me back19:12
Chuck_Norriscolmack: try Ctrl-Alt-F#  where # culd be a numbre and 7 it is by defaul a grafical interface19:12
daftykinscolmack: just a heads up, using a non-LTS release for a server is a pretty bad move19:13
paulus68Bashing-om: no encrypted file system and did reinstall grub but no such luck during install of 14.04 I get kernel version ending with .24 (don't recall the complete kernel version19:13
paulus68Bashing-om: however when I upgrade to a more recent version it generates this error message19:14
colmack@Chuck Norris - I tried all of the Ctrl-Alt-F#s with no luck.  Since it's a server install, there's no GUI to revert to on F7.19:14
Bashing-ompaulus68: Can you boot to the grub boot menu, and from there boot to a terminal ( edit the boot parameter line)  ?19:14
paulus68Bashing-om: at this point busy again to reinstall ubuntu and see if my external drives are causing a problem19:15
Node_032Hi. I wonder if I can unplug my USB memory stick after the installation has started? I assume that everything is loaded into RAM or am I wrong? Thanks19:15
colmack@daftykins it's just a personal minecraft server so not too concerned with long term support.  no important data on here.19:15
Bashing-ompaulus68: Roger, we await the outcome. Here to assist.19:15
Chuck_Norriscolmack: then maybe the installer finish its job19:15
daftykinscolmack: righty-o, you'll still get to upgrade fun19:16
paulus68Bashing-om: also checked the drives for failes none found( both HD's are SSD's19:16

paulus68Bashing-om: sorry double  however I'm running a seperate homedrive can that cause a problem by any chance19:27
Bashing-ompaulus68: Not if you told the installer ( something else) where /home is .19:27
paulus68Bashing-om: I mean that ubuntu is storing data on the seperate homedrive when installing updates19:28
paulus68Bashing-om: I know that for example firefox has an hidden config folder that stores the most important data can this be the case when upgrading the kernels?19:29
Bashing-ompaulus68: All depends on what you told the installer, and if what you said is the truth .19:29
High-rise_9999It appears a recent update broke my nvidia drivers. My screen resolution is fixed at something around 600x400, and I keep getting system error reports that something with nvidia-uvm is broken. I tried reinstalling nvidia-current to no avail.19:30
paulus68Bashing-om: I instructed the installer to connect to my second sdd and call it /home19:30
paulus68Bashing-om: and I'm not here to lie about the problem that I'm encountering now I try to solve it :)19:32
Bashing-ompaulus68: And /home does exist on that 2nd SSD drive ? Should have been set up prior to the (RE-)install .19:32

Seveashello agent_white, what can we help you with?20:45
kongle_I am failing hard in SFTP-land… I don’t understand why I can log in to my Ubuntu box even when i’ve removed vsftpd completely from the system?20:46
agent_whiteSeveas: Nothin! Here to listen in and help where I can.20:46
dougielSo I am a member of my mom's quilting club and was wondering if anyone has any experience with digitizing images for use with embroidery machines under linux?20:47
dougielagent_white, you never asked for help?20:48
dougieloh I see nm20:48
Seveasdougiel: just scanning them isn't enough?20:49
dougielSeveas, no... there is some software that turns them into one of 3 different file formats that the embroidery machine can use to stich the pattern20:50
dougieldepending on your machine20:50

kongle_Why can I remotely SFTP in to my home folder, even after purge remove vsftpd?20:51
EriC^^kongle_: is it still running?20:52
EriC^^service --status-all20:52
=== arjun is now known as Guest55053
EriC^^kongle_: try pkill vsftp20:53
Seveasdougiel: some quick googling turned up http://libregraphicsworld.org/blog/entry/embroidery-design-on-linux-now-possible-with-thred and https://userbase.kde.org/KXStitch20:54
Seveaskongle_: vsftpd does ftp. sftp isn't ftp, but an ssh channel.20:55
kongle_EriC^^: Still able to authenticate and download files…20:55
kongle_Seveas: SSH File Transfer Protocol20:56
RalfRjoin #i320:56
Seveaskongle_: exactly. SSH.20:56
dougielSeveas, thanks - I found thred32 and kxstich looks promising got no browser at the moment but I am on my way20:57
kongle_So… I can log in since SSH is enabled and working? Dammit. Thanks, though! :)20:57
Seveaskongle_: you can disable sftp :)20:57
Seveaskongle_: comment out the Subsystem sftp line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config to do so20:58
kongle_If it’s secure-ish, I’ll keep it enabled. However, I would like to access another path by default (not home, but a mounted md0). Any pointers?20:58
daftykinskongle_: yeah you browse to it...20:59
daftykins(to where it's mounted)20:59
Seveaskongle_: man sftp-server, search for the -d option. I think you need to add that to the sftp line in sshd_config but never tried this.21:00
=== Guest45172 is now known as vahl
kongle_shit, I can dir backwards from /home/ ? This is very… open.. Sorry for being such a newb21:00
bonhoefferis there a terminal command that shows all the uri’s that apache httpd is ready to service with a virtual host?21:00
daftykinskongle_: do not use non-family-friendly language in here please.21:00
Seveaskongle_: it's as open as ssh. Both can be made less 'open' with chroot options.21:01
daftykinskongle_: it's only as open as knowing your username and password.21:01
daftykinskongle_: if you're trying to set up some kind of shared file access system, you're going about it the wrong way21:01
Seveasbonhoeffer: no, as that can be an intractable problem21:01
solsTiCehi. I wanted to play music from phone to pc via bluetooth. I found something online with d-feet and executing connect on audiosource in d-feet. then the the phone comes up in sound manager preference input. is there a more user friendly way to do that ? i mean instead of using d-feet21:01
philuk2000I'm looking for NFC applications for ubuntu (like I have for Android) to read and write NFC tags.  All I seem to be able to find are libraries and python scripts. Are there any good GUI applications I can use?21:01
kongle_daftykins: Ok. Thanks.21:02
bonhoefferSeveas: apachectl fullstatus gets close21:02
Seveasbonhoeffer: not at all.21:02
kongle_Seveas: Ok, thanks. I’ll check the conf21:02
bonhoefferfor me it is working well, sorry it doesn’t help you21:02
kongle_daftykins: I’m trying to set up a secure way to upload files to my home Ubuntu desktop21:03
daftykinskongle_: for what users from where?21:05
MrSassyPantswtf just happened to nvidia-driver. I updated stuffs, rebooted, now nvidia-driver stopped working.21:05
kongle_For me, from WAN (using noip, already set up for LAMP)21:05
CharlieTheCabbieEvening guys.  Anyone around to possibly lend me a ladder to dig myself out from a huge hole?21:06
kongle_daftykins: For me, from WAN (using noip, already set up for LAMP)21:06
daftykinskongle_: ok, so configure SSHd to run on a non-standard port #, forward it... have a decent password or look into key auth... then also consider installing fail2ban to firewall out repeated access attempts.21:06
DecodeAlright ao whe I type really quickly this should sort21:06
philuk2000are there any NFC frontend Linux applications?21:06
MrSassyPantsIs this a thing? nvidia not working all of a sudden? are there details? anything?21:06
daftykinsMrSassyPants: if you installed it by downloading manually from the nvidia site then this is kinda your own fault21:07
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, well, good thing I did not21:07
daftykinsMrSassyPants: official repo package version then huh? good stuff. so, what's going wrong? looked at the relevant logs?21:07
bonhoefferSeveas: but apache2ctl -S is exactly what i wanted21:08
CharlieTheCabbieI have Ubuntu installed, using the Kubuntu desktop.  I switched from using lightdm to kdm today, and all unholy hell has broken loose.  My desktop is all over the place - and all of my windows in plasma are so squashed I can't read them.  I have more artifacts on my display than the Smithsonian. Help :)21:08
kongle_daftykins: Ok, thanks. I’ll look into that. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Cheers21:08
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, just rebooted. am in X, but the driver is wrong. haven't had a problem with this in so long... gimme a second I'll check the x log21:08

daftykins(don't paste here)21:09
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, well part of the update was kernel and I remember seeing the driver pop up21:09
daftykinsshould've regenerated a module for it really21:09

OerHeksphiluk2000, maybe this page with ppa is any help http://nfc-tools.org/index.php?title=Libnfc21:10
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I remember the driver popping up in aptitudes log21:10
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, didn't pay close attention though21:10
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, guess that was the attempt to rebuild it after the kernel upgrade21:10
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: do you want to reinstall lightdm?21:10
CharlieTheCabbieI have done, but I want to use KDM and with lightdm running, I can't seem to figure out what the hell is wrong with kdm21:11
MrSavageHow can I change my file manager and make it default for firefox too? Do I have to use a different window manager?21:11
MrSavageI tried installing nemo and making it my default file manager but it was so much trouble21:11
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: what do you mean use KDM with lightdm running?21:11
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: you mean KDE?21:12
philuk2000OerHeks: Yes, I have installed that, I can see my nfc reader but cannot find a command to read tags21:12
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver -> E: Package 'nvidia-driver' has no installation candidate21:12
CharlieTheCabbieI want to use KDM as the display manager rather than lightdm21:12
daftykinsMrSassyPants: it was never called that. can you just pastebin the output of the dpkg command i asked for please. http://paste.ubuntu.com21:12
MrSassyPantsalrigh alright21:12
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, btw it must have been called that way because it finds references21:13
MrSassyPantsand worries about obsoletion21:13
daftykinsnever seen a package with that name.21:13
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, http://paste.ubuntu.com/9507042/21:13
daftykinsMrSassyPants: "sudo apt-get purge nvidia*" wait until that's done, then "sudo apt-get clean" then "sudo apt-get install nvidia-331"21:14
daftykins(note the * at the end of my first command)21:14
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I would have used the kde driver thingy to switch from nvidia-331 to nvidia-331-updates21:14
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, want me to do your thing for debug purposes anyways?21:14
daftykinsok well you can use the first purge command, then use your method to pick another21:15
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: try sudo dpkg-reconfigure kdm21:15
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, also, its the lowlatency kernel and kubuntu, in case that matters21:15
gamzera_hi guys, I need some timer that count seconds until some date..21:16
CharlieTheCabbieThat's worth a shot EriC^^ - it's been so long since I used linux, I forgot most of what I learned...21:16
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, now installing -updates thingy now via driver thingy. will be back after reboot to provide status update.21:17
SchrodingersScat!info alarmclock | gamzera_21:18
ubottugamzera_: Package alarmclock does not exist in utopic21:18
SchrodingersScat!info alarm-clock | gamzera_21:18
ubottugamzera_: alarm-clock (source: alarm-clock): Alarm Clock for GTK Environments. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.2.5-1.2ubuntu1 (utopic), package size 597 kB, installed size 1664 kB21:18
OerHeksMrSassyPants, daftykins, i notice that nvidia-settings is for 331.20, not for 331.38 ?21:18
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, the -updates thing is .3821:18
daftykinsOerHeks: 331.38 appeared to be 'rc'21:19
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, what does that mean?21:19
daftykinsremoved, configured21:19
daftykinsit means the package has been removed but config is still present21:19
gamzera_ubottu: I installed alarm-clock, but I Don't have idea how to find it..21:19
ubottugamzera_: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)21:19
daftykinssince you seem to have tried every version under the sun ;)21:19
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I don't think I did. I think it just does that automagically.21:20
SchrodingersScatgamzera_: should be in your application menu somewhere, but you can also run it with 'alarmclock' in the terminal, or launch it via that in any way you like.  the difference of package name being alarm-clock and the binary being alarmclock always throws me off, as you can see above.21:20
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, what's the proper procedure? install nvidia-common and then that just has the current driver as a prereq?21:21
MrSassyPantshmm, the driver thingy doesn't ask me to reboot. which is unsettling.21:22
daftykinsMrSassyPants: no... what does it matter if you're using the GUI installer? :)21:22
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I don't trust guis ._.21:23
MrSassyPantswell, modprobe / lsmod | grep did find it21:23
MrSassyPantsso will brb, rebooting21:23
gamzera_SchrodingersScat: this is pure....21:23
gamzera_SchrodingersScat: I can't set it up..21:24
MrSassyPantsok, works, wine'd dx9 game works too21:26
SchrodingersScatgamzera_: should just go to 'edit' and create new alarm, or counter if you need a set time in the future, like 15 minutes, etc.21:26
gamzera_SchrodingersScat: I've done it, but I need something that is more like widget I can put on desktop.21:26
SchrodingersScatI don't have anything to recommend then, I don't widgets :?21:27
MrSassyPantsso daftykins, any idea what caused this?21:27
daftykinsMrSassyPants: sorry i only deal with making results - not the detective work on 'why' :)21:28
MrSassyPantsI just think that it might be happening to a lot of people right now21:29
daftykinsMrSassyPants: that's a bold claim.21:30

MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I didn't screw around on this system much. the list of nvidia stuff is mostly just accumulated over like 3 years21:31
MrSassyPantsand I din do nuffin21:31
daftykinsyeah alright, anyway problem resolved. i'm moving on now21:31
MrSassyPantshmm tho. it did install linux-generic as well as linux-lowlatency. kinda has problems with that. Maybe it built the driver for -generic, or something.21:32
MrSassyPantsit's the first time this has happend and am surprised, is all21:32

MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I am using lowlatency right now. intentionally.21:35

MrSassyPantsdaftykins, just, apt occasionally installs -generic for no reason21:35
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, totally. pre-emptible kernels ftw21:36
* daftykins shakes his head21:36
MrSassyPantseh, it's an experiment that's been going on for like a month now.21:36
daftykinsyou're 100% on your own now.21:36
hydrajumpi have an odd problem with PAM. I need to add the following `auth    required        pam_exec.so expose_authtok /usr/share/lightdm/freerdp-auth21:37
hydrajumpto /etc/pam.d/common-auth21:37
daftykinsMrSassyPants: one last thing though, you keep referring to aptitude when the default is apt-get.21:37
hydrajumpbut when I add it to the end of the file and reboot I can't login any longer.21:37
hydrajumpOddly enough the same thing works fine on an older ubuntu version 13.04. I'm currently trying to make it work on 14.04.21:37
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, eh, close enough21:38
hydrajumpI had a look at the 13.04 common-auth and compared it to my 14.04 file and they are identical so I don't understand why this is happening21:38
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, I'll install the -331 (non-updates) version and see if it fails21:38
superherointjI've just updated Ubuntu using Ubuntu Own Update tool. And now I can't open my computer anymore.21:39
CharlieTheCabbieEriC^^: Just to check - when I use dpkg-reconfigure, that will switch from lightdm to kdm - but how do I fix the display?  I've tried from 640x480 to 1024x768 and all available refresh rates, but the display looks atrocious.21:40
OerHekssuperherointj, did you have any nvidia-331 updates by any chance?21:40
MrSassyPantssuperherointj, is the laptop lid welded shut? or what do you mean with "can't open no more"21:40
CharlieTheCabbieImagine looking at the display through 2 crossed open venetian blinds21:40
CharlieTheCabbiethat's pretty similar21:40
MrSassyPantssuperherointj, also, what OerHeks asks21:40
superherointjWhen Ubuntu starts. It opens the dialog "Enter password for keyring 'default'to unlock. And background is BLACK. I have a Nvidia GTX 780 Ti video card and I have its proprietary drivers installed. Im not sure it can influence it. But when I enter the password. Nothing happens.21:41
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, mind you, I had nouveau installed so it just loaded that as a backup21:41
CharlieTheCabbieIs there any text file where I can configure the display manually without using the GUI to do so?21:41
superherointjOerHeks: yes!!!!21:41
superherointjI mean, I know I have a nvidia video card. But I'm not sure which version driver I have.21:41
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, we're on to something here21:41
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: which driver are you using? lshw -C video | grep driver21:42
OerHeksMrSassyPants, jups, as it affected me too yesterday.21:42
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, you thought it was you?21:42
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: there's xrandr for setting resolutions and such, and there might be a /etc/X11/xorg.conf depending on what you're using21:42
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, HAAA21:42
MrSassyPantsOerHeks, confirmed! -331 doesn't build properly!21:43
CharlieTheCabbieI'm gonna have to do some digging.  I'll take my terminal with me.21:43
CharlieTheCabbieI've got to get back to my unit21:43

MrSassyPantsOerHeks, userdel: user nvidia-persistenced is currently used by process 188121:45
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: ok, if lightdm is working and kdm isn't i suppose maybe it's loading a wrong configuration or something, you could maybe check the logs and see what's going on21:45
superherointjIt is not showing anything that command. And I did run as superuser.21:45

MrSassyPantssuperherointj, this is the first time in 3 years I've had this problem22:06
MrSassyPantssuperherointj, I think it's just a bug in that specific version of the driver22:06

superherointjThe nvidia driver I am using is: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.58.run22:12
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: type whereis startkde22:12
daftykinssuperherointj: yeah, these are the risks of using a manual download.22:12
daftykinsMrSassyPants: see the difference?22:12
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, ah, he downloaded it from the site.22:12
CharlieTheCabbieshould mention firefox is working fine, should i take this to kde?  looks to be plasma maybe is culprit...22:12
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, yea I get it.22:12
daftykinsMrSassyPants: i don't think the repo packages support superherointj's card right now22:13
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, still, 700 series isn't new! did he try the default ones? Theres 800s and 900s out now22:13
daftykinsso a manual download is the only option -> leading to issues22:13
daftykinsMrSassyPants: you might want to do some card history research in your own time ;)22:13
OerHeksthe 780 is suported from 3.19 and up22:13
CharlieTheCabbieEriC^^: startkde: /usr/bin/startkde  /usr/bin/X11/startkde  /usr/share/man/man1/startkde.1.gz22:14
superherointjMy computer was unstable before going after the nvidia proprietary drivers and it improved after I installed it.22:14
CharlieTheCabbiejust going to reboot, give me a moment22:14
superherointjNow I am just trying to figure out how to solve it.22:14
EriC^^CharlieTheCabbie: ok22:15
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, I'm not sure you are right in your analysis. because the regular 331 thats in apt right now would totally support the 780!22:15
CharlieTheCabbieI just ran apt-cache search nouveau and found the nouveau-firmware file, which it seems I didn't have :/22:15
daftykinsMrSassyPants: Ti edition too? meh maybe it was another model. either way this conversation has gone on too long and i'm done with it \o/22:16
CharlieTheCabbieI've installed and rebooted, let's see the destruction :)22:16
superherointjI just want a driver that works. How can I have current driver from repository?22:16
daftykinssuperherointj: just reinstall yours, no biggy.22:16
mehdaftykins, you rang?22:19
daftykinswow that's a terrible nickname for IRC22:19
daftykinsyou might as well be called 'lol'22:19
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, the 780 is about the oldest 700 series... the lower numbers (730) are actually newer because they're typically mobile devices.22:19
MrSassyPants780 has been supported since march, from what I can tell22:19
daftykinsMrSassyPants: i don't want to hear anymore about it now. also, i disagree22:20
MrSassyPantsdaftykins, alright alright22:20
* DilloYoda is away: Off to find a shrubbery...22:22
MrSassyPantssuperherointj, there should be drivers that work for you in the repository, just make sure *not* to use 'nouveau', because nouveau is the open source driver that won't work well for you22:22
Bashing-omsuperherointj: My thoughts As Nvidia 750 ti version 334.xx or later, and it's not in the Trusty repo ; is not yout 780 ti an even later card ? such that perhaps https://launchpad.net/~mamarley/+archive/ubuntu/nvidia is a viable option ?22:22
CharlieTheCabbieMrSassyPants: Is there another Nvidia driver to use instead of nouveau?  Nouveau is not working right on here, everything is tits up and sinking like a holed ocean liner22:23
MrSassyPantsCharlieTheCabbie, yes. Nouveau is the Open Source driver. The proprietary, current one would be nvidia-331-updates22:24
CharlieTheCabbienice.  Do I need any new repos to pull that?22:24
MrSassyPantsI don't think so22:24
MrSassyPantsunless you want the bleeding edge, super current drivers22:25
CharlieTheCabbiegetting them now.  How do I swap from nouveau to this one?  lsmod is showing nouveau for the video driver22:26
daftykinsyou reboot.22:26
CharlieTheCabbiethe easier the better22:26
CharlieTheCabbieback in a tick22:26
haagendazsgood luck CharlieTheCabbie22:27
MrSassyPantsthere's a front end for selecting the driver22:27
MrSassyPantsbut you can try just installing the nvidia drivers and then after a restart run nvidia-settings to see if they're actually being used22:28
superherointjRight. I will test nvidia-settings. I happened to open UBuntu desktop but without left side menu bar.22:30
daftykinssounds bad22:30

OerHeksuhelp, system settings > keyboard - repeat keys22:35
uhelphow do you access system settings?  ccsm?22:35
superherointjRight now Ubuntu is opening when I restart but it doesn`t show the left side panel that hold icons.22:35
zermannoHi is it possible to list the files not installed by apt?22:36
OerHeksuhelp, systemsettings is a standard icon on the unity panel22:36
EriC^^zermanno: can you reiterate?22:36
uhelpI do not have the unity panel.  What would I type?22:36
Bashing-omsuperherointj: That "might" be a dconf issue ??22:36
superherointjHow do I check it?22:36
uhelpsudo shutdown -h now22:37
zermannoEriC^^, I'd like to know which parts of the file system have been modified by users22:37
OerHeksuhelp,  what ubuntu/desktop ?22:37
uhelpOerHeks, it is the default desktop but I uninstalled the panel22:38
uhelpmaybe not uninstalled, it is still there when boots for a second .. then hides and is gone22:38
CharlieTheCabbieIt was the nouveau driver that was screwing things up.  I'm on the proprietary driver, Eric^^, MrSassyPants & daftykins - and kde is crystal clear!22:38
MrSassyPantsCharlieTheCabbie, congrats22:39
CharlieTheCabbieThanks for all your help, it's been a pain in the arse to fix, but it's there :)22:39
uhelpI don't want it back -- just need to know how to access from command line.22:39
Bashing-omsuperherointj: Try , from terminal -> sudo apt-get install dconf-tools , export DISPLAY=:0 , dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ , unity --reset-icons . Reboot to see if any effect .22:39
uhelpFOUND IT: uniity-control-center22:40
uhelpunity-control-center*  -- Thank you OerHeks :)22:40
OerHeksuhelp, nice, you found it quicker than me :-D22:40
superherointjI don`t have this /org/compiz/ folder.22:41
uhelpOerHeks, ugh.  There is still a problem.  Someone needs to be shot.  The slide bar only lets you choose between slow and slower.  I cannot increase the repeat speed.22:41
Bashing-omsuperherointj: Unity as the Desktop Environment ?22:41
=== ark is now known as Guest67653
superherointjI use standard Ubuntu.22:42
EriC^^superherointj: it's not a folder, it's a key22:42
uhelpOerHeks, so now I am back to my original problem.  I know where I can access some gui control to change it but the gui control is useless.22:43
superherointjerror: Error spawning command line 'dbus-launch'22:43
darkblue_bhi - I have an LUbuntu 14.04 VM, and the ethernet isnt connecting.. there was no eth0 entry in /etc/network/interfaces, so I added one for DHCP, and sudo service network restart.. but no connection.. what to look at tnext?22:43
ikoniadarkblue_b: the network is controlled by network manager22:44
ikoniadarkblue_b: remove the info you put in the interfaces file and configure it with network manager22:44
bekksdarkblue_b: Look at "sudo ifconfig -a" to find out your device name. Then, follow ikonia's advice :)22:44
OerHeksuhelp, might be worth a bugreport, in ubuntu/unity it is adjustable as you expect it to.22:45
Guest67653hello, I've bought a new computer (no previous OS) and am trying to get drivers installed for my 750 ti. I've been trying for days now to get this working, to no avail. I just get a purple screen when I boot into Ubuntu. I try booting into recovery mode with networking but I get the error: "mountall: fsck /boot [879] terminated with status" 122:45
Guest67653What should I do?22:45
ikoniaGuest67653: what drivers do you need ?22:45
superherointjThe command "dconf reset -f /org/compiz/" returns "error: Error spawning command line 'dbus-launch'". What should I do then?22:45
uhelpOerHeks, what URL do I file it at?22:45
CharlieTheCabbieright guys, with many thanks, i have got to go get one with some work.  I'll drop in on you again tomorrow night probably, hopefully should be all quiet on the western front by then22:46
Bashing-omsuperherointj: I think you need to tell it about the X session else it tries to spawn its own dbus instance by activating a console from key combo ctl+alt+F2 .22:46
Guest67653not sure exactly which drivers. I can't get networking to work so I've not even gotten that far22:46
darkblue_bare you suggesting System Tools -> Network ?  or Preferences -> Network Connections   ??22:46
CharlieTheCabbiegood night, sleep well :_22:46

darkblue_b"how have you configured networking"22:47
ikoniadarkblue_b: no, that was Guest6765322:47
darkblue_boh he did say networking at the end.. ok22:47
Guest67653Not even sure what you're asking. When I boot into recovery I choose the option that says enable networking22:47

darkblue_b.. with linux sometimes the computer is available even when there are terrible display problems22:50
OerHeksuhelp, yes, this goes online, except if you mark the bug as security risc, then it goes internal.22:50
Bashing-omikonia: So far as I know  there is no driver availabale for the 750 ti and above to this time in our repo. There is a PPA . ( or go direct to Nvidia ) ??22:51
ikoniaBashing-om: I didn't see him say he was using a 75022:51
uhelpOerHeks, ok, I will take it from here.  Thank you.22:51
Bashing-omikonia: I often get my wires croosed for sure . But I see " I've bought a new computer (no previous OS) and am trying to get drivers installed for my 750 ti " .22:52
Guest67653yes 750 ti22:52

Guest67653I do22:56
darkblue_bwhen your new computer starts, and it gets to the point where it stabilizes, can you see the new computer on the network, or connect with ssh ?22:57
bekksseinthebear: Uninstall the old kernels, leave the two latest installed.22:57
darkblue_b.. I am here for help myself but I do setup machines...22:57
darkblue_bit sounds like there may not be a stock driver for this new video card, but perhaps you can get a nonfree one.. I am just reading the comments here now22:57
Bashing-omGuest67653: May I suggest ya try and boot to a terminal from grub's boot menu ? -> @ grub press 'e' key for edit, in the next boot paramaeters screen arrow down and across to the line starting with linux, and arrow acroos to the terms "quiet splash" replace these terms with "text" - withoout the quotes. Key combo ctl+x to continue the bopot process to TTY1. Log in here with username and password ( NO repsonse to screen when passsword is entered ) .23:01
Guest67653darkblue_b: I wouldn't know how to connect via ssh but I *think* I see it connected to router23:04
Guest67653Bashing-om: ok, trying that now23:05
SteelGolemi see alot of different sites saying that '\n' is all you need for a newline in *nix, but i'm sure i heard recently that it was supposed to be '\l\r' or '\r\n' or something like that. can i just stick to \n and be just fine?23:05
darkblue_bif there is a convenient way for you to see the names/numbers of machines on your local network, then next time you shut down the new machine.. look at all the names/numbers, make a note, then start your new machine.. then look again23:05
daftykinsSteelGolem: #bash might be more relevant depending on what you're up to23:05
SteelGolemhmm, maybe eh. i'm just considering what i should output in printf/etc23:06
SteelGolemthanks, i'll ask there23:06
superherointjI am having a hard time fixing this thing. I`ve got lost so many times. Ubuntu isn`t ready for average users. :(23:07
darkblue_bno one is born knowing computers..23:07
daftykinssuperherointj: i would have to disagree there. if you want help you're going to have to share some more details23:07
superherointjI believe the video card driver is right. Problem is something related to unity.23:08
darkblue_bI use LUbuntu or XUbuntu to escape Unity23:08
superherointjSorry. I can open ubuntu desktop, but I can`t see the left side bar.23:08
daftykinssuperherointj: test the guest session.23:08
Bashing-omsuperherointj: Consider that you have a new graphics card that linux has not had the availability from the vendor to catch up to .23:08
superherointjI don`t know how to choose guest session it opens automatically to desktop.23:08
Guest67653Bashing-om: I tried this and it just gives me a purple screen...used F10 to make it go instead of ctrl-x since that just entered x as text23:09
Bashing-omGuest67653: Then You are not doing something right. This proceedure works on any release. Do you boot to the grub boot menu ?23:10
daftykinssuperherointj: can you use TTY's ? (ctrl+alt+F1 through F6 would give console logins)23:10
superherointjYes. I can.23:10
daftykinssuperherointj: this is going to be drastic, but temporary. run "mv ~/.config ~/.configold" then run "sudo service lightdm restart"23:11
superherointjRight now at F7 I have Ubuntu Desktop. And at F1 I have terminal.23:11
daftykinssuperherointj: yeah type as above23:12
superherointjDone. It opens Desktop window.23:12
Guest67653Bashing-om: it says GNU GRUB at the top, I have options for "Ubuntu", "advanced options for Ubuntu" and some others. Should I be doing this on the first option?23:12
superherointjBut without left sidebar.23:12
Bashing-omGuest67653: We are working from the install of ubuntu, correct ? Not the liveDVD(USB) .23:12
superherointjShould I reboot PC?23:14
Bashing-omGuest67653: At that top option that has an asterisk to the left side .. now press the 'e' key for edit mode .23:14
daftykinssuperherointj: run what i said23:14
superherointjI did run.23:14
Guest67653yep, done23:14
daftykinssuperherointj: so now switch back to ctrl+alt+F7 and see if things look ok23:15
superherointjIt restarted Ubuntu and asked for my password again. (Enter password for keyring 'default' to unlock)23:15
Bashing-omGuest67653: Now you see a line similar " linux    /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic root=UUID=217ed9a7-e11a-4e32-8c05-992e8c8932b6 ro  quiet splash $vt_handoff " , yes ?23:15
superherointjIt did not fix it.23:15
superherointjI still don`t have a side bar.23:16
superherointjI can only see desktop and icons.23:16
Guest67653yes, replace "quiet splash" with "text", correct?23:16
superherointjAnd Icons on desktop are working.23:16
daftykinssuperherointj: sounds like you have a bigger problem. "sudo apt-get install pastebinit" and "pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log"23:16
Bashing-omGuest67653: Correct . key combo ctl+x to continue to terminal TTY1 .23:17
Guest67653I press ctrl-x and it just inputs an actual text "x" onscreen23:17
Guest67653F10 does same?23:18
physixerhow to install "standard firefox" in place of "firefox for ubuntu"?23:18
Bashing-omGuest67653: That is a combo -- hold the 'ctl' key and also press the x key while holding the ctl key .23:18
daftykinsphysixer: what's the point?23:19
Bashing-omGuest67653: Yes, key F10 is supposed to do the same .23:19
superherointjEnjoyed this pastebinit. :)23:19
Guest67653Bashing-om: I hold control button and while holding it I press "x" button. It just inputs an x onscreen. should I just press F10? Does it do the same thing?23:20
Guest67653ok F10...23:20
Bashing-omGuest67653: Yes, the F10 Key is supposed to do the same .. try it and advise results .23:21
Guest67653just a purple screen23:21
daftykinssuperherointj: run "sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf" - see the "autologin-user=" Line? put a # at the very start of the line to comment it out, then save with ctrl+x hitting yes/enter to confirm23:21
physixerdaftykins: because "firefox for ubuntu" for the life of me, would not let me change default file manager from Gnome-Nautilus to Thunar23:21
Bashing-omGuest67653: something stinks here .. gimme a bit to consider .23:22
daftykinsphysixer: firefox has nothing to do with choosing a default file manager O_O23:22
Guest67653no problem, thanks for your help.23:22
daftykinssuperherointj: after that, re-run "sudo service lightdm restart" and try the guest session23:22
physixerdaftykins: I have changed xdg-mime, I have manually changed /usr/share/applications/defaults.list ... chromium is working, xdg-open is working, gvfs-open is working (they all open inode/directory with thunar as I specified) but not firefox23:23
daftykinsphysixer: i have no experience with that23:23
superherointjcool. it removed my user as auto-login.23:24
superherointjAs guest it showed the side bar!23:25
daftykinssuperherointj: huzzah23:25
daftykinsso there's something wrong with your account for sure23:25
daftykinsare you sure you moved .config to .configold for sure?23:25
Bashing-omGuest67653: Let's try this. in addition to text also add "nomodeset" as boot parameters .23:25
superherointjI typed the command. I can try again.23:25
daftykinssuperherointj: tell you what give me a "ls -al ~ | pastebinit"23:26
Guest67653Bashing-om: give me a minute23:26
daftykinssuperherointj: wait, are you root right now?23:27
daftykinswhy on earth23:27
superherointjusers :(23:27
daftykinswhy are you root? why aren't you your user?23:28
Guest67653so, I deleted "quiet splash" and input "text nomodeset"23:28
daftykinssuperherointj: can you see why it didn't work now? ;) you renamed the .config of root - not your user23:28
Guest67653still just purple screen23:28
superherointjIT works!!!23:29
superherointjThank you very much.23:29
daftykinssuperherointj: no problemo. just to check, i hope you switched to root@ with "sudo -i" and didn't log in with root - if you have a password for root you're doing ubuntu wrong :)23:29
superherointjI can`t login with root doesn`t work.23:30
daftykinssuperherointj: good, so you just switched with 'sudo -i' or something then.23:30
superherointjI use "sudo su".23:31
daftykinssuperherointj: ok that's also really bad practice, don't do that again. "sudo -i"23:31
Guest67653Bashing-om: was that correct?23:32
superherointjThanks. :)23:32
Bashing-omGuest67653: At this point, I must consider a bad install . Did you check the md5sum of the .iso file ? and did you "check disk for defects" when you burned the image ?23:33

Guest67653I didn't. Could my mobo or cpu be effecting anything?23:36
Bashing-omGuest67653: Highly unlikely tht the CPU or main board is at fault .. less this is something very out of the norm . What system did you use to download the .iso file . and we check that file's integrity .23:38

Just to make sure the foundation for troubleshooting is firm. see : http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows for the instructions. and then we check that "disk for defects" .23:42
