squeegilyI tried VLC and MPlayer03:49

Bashing-omsqueegily: Maybe as a start: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsVideoCardsPoulsbo . Have you seen this one ?03:50
squeegilyYeah I googled everything03:50
CrellI need some help diagnosing an issue.03:50
CrellI've a server that was running 12.04 previously without issue, although it was off for several months until recently.03:51
CrellI have reinstalled fresh with 14.04 Ubuntu-server.03:51
squeegilyAll I got on #xubuntu was some guy saying that I'm screwed because Intel doesn't support it03:51
CrellIt has been highly  unstable since then; network fails after a while and needs a reboot, random kernel panics, kernel stack corruption errors, "recursive error detected", etc.03:51
CrellAm I looking at a hardware failure that coincided with me installing 14.04, at massive driver incompatibility, or something else?03:52
squeegilyaccording to the Arch wiki, this chip should be good for H.264 decoding.. How can I check to see if it's being properly accelerated?03:52
CrellThe only hardware change is that it's now running a 3-drive RAID 5 setup rather than a single HDD as previously.  Otherwise there were no hardware changes.03:52
squeegilyCrell: maybe try going back to the 1-HDD and see if it works again?03:53
CrellI wouldn't expect NEW driver issues on hardware this old (~9 years for most of it), but I also wouldn't expect hardware failures to coincide with an OS install just by chance.03:53
Bashing-omsqueegily: Not at all, see: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1984236 . maybe get the developer 'thopiekar' attention .03:53
squeegilyThat would be step 1 in diagnosing it03:53
Crellsqueegily: That is unfortunately difficult.  The old HDD is now in an external enclosure that is poorly designed so I can't get the drive back out. :-)03:53
* Crell discovered this the hard way and was displeased.03:53
squeegilyBummer :(03:53
squeegilyI thought I had it bad with my stupid Dell hard drive mounting rails03:54
daftykinsCrell: step 1 memtest.03:54
Crelldaftykins: Can that be run from a booted HDD or do I need to use a dedicated recovery CD for it?03:54
squeegilyHmm I think Ubuntu comes with it by defauly03:54
squeegilyIt is an operating system, so to speak03:55
daftykinsCrell: go via the GRUB menu, but bootable media is nicest03:55
daftykinsnot even vaguely an OS, it's an app :P03:55
squeegilySo it needs to be booted regardless. With Ubuntu, it comes on the HDD by default03:55
wacksheadhi everyone03:56
CrellAh, gotcha.  Running it now.03:56
CrellWill report back shortly.03:56
squeegily11 pages.. how do I get the Archive view on Ubuntu forums? The one with the trimmed-down HTML and one-page view03:56
squeegilyAh found it03:57
wacksheadI'm using rsync to back up a NAS to a server and then to a hdd, I'm trying to work out the best way to avoid deleting files when the filesystem is not available.03:58
wacksheadie, network or RAID fails and there are no files on the source03:58
wacksheadthe last thing you want to have happen is rsync delete the files on the target...03:58
wacksheadwhich is happening to me at the moment...03:58
squeegilyThe posts on that forum thread dated Oct 2012 say that te gma500 doesn't support video acceleration04:00
squeegilyBut the Arch Wiki page as of today says it does04:00
squeegilySo the question is04:00
daftykinsas of today? you really think something'd change in such an ancient chipset as of today? :)04:00
squeegilyDid that change due to the driver code being finished, or was it due to changes in the chipsets04:01
daftykinsthe poulsbo SCH and GMA were terrible, i remember they didn't even work with Linux for a while04:01
jeffrey_fwackshead: Are you truly backing up or just synching data?04:01
daftykins...the chipset does not change04:01
wacksheadjeffrey_f, syncing, but really trying to backup04:01
wacksheadie sync NAS->server04:02
wacksheadthen sync server->USB hdd04:02
Bashing-omsqueegily: Might check : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2107593 <-3D accelaration with Poulsbo GMA500 through EMGD: a work in progress. // Maybe EMGD has been dropped ??04:02

wacksheadjeffrey_f, yes.04:03
rocketpenguinANy secret tips on installing skype on 14.10?04:03
wacksheadjeffrey_f, but I need to make sure the file system isn't missing first...04:04
squeegilyIn that thread they seem to be discussing getting 3D working04:05
jeffrey_fwackshead: How about zip'ing/rar/tar to a destination?04:05
wacksheadjeffrey_f, what's the difference?04:06
squeegilyIt looks like you can use an outdated closed-source driver with an ancient kernel and X.Org version to get some mediocre 3D acceleration for Unity or Minecraft04:06
squeegilyNothing applying to H.264 decoding :(04:06

MrAristoschmidtm, Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's 802.11G, not 802.11AC, correct?04:29

MrAristodaftykins, Would you mind expounding on that?  Right now the network I'm trying to play with is a 5Ghz network only, and I'm a fair distance from the broadcast.04:32

daftykinsdo you have another wifi device you can confirm the signal strength with? like a 5GHz capable smartphone?04:34

daftykinsmake a wired bridge out of the mac? :)04:35
MrAristoI've been thinking about that.  Not my first choice, obviously, but if that's all I can do, I might go down that road.04:35
daftykinsi'm sure with research you could probably find a supported adapter04:36
MrAristoYeah, I've been trying for the last 14 hours.04:37
MrAristoWent down that road of screwing with makefiles to get a Netgear A6210 working after I could beat windows drivers into submission with ndiswrapper.  And the linux mediatek chipset drivers for the A6200 don't work with the A6210, sadly.04:38

batabatui format a usb drive in gparted as ext2 filesystem, with a single partition of about 62Gb. Gparted finishes without error. however when I go to use the usb stick, I get errors and it won't mount " EXT4-fs (sda1): group descriptors corrupted!". Seems odd because I formatted it as ext2. Any ideas?09:30
cfhowlettbatabatu, you formatted as ext2.  OF COURSE ext4 (the default) doesn't work.09:31
batabatuok so the system tries to mount it as ext4 by default?09:31
cfhowlettbatabatu, that's what it's looking for, yes09:32
cfhowlettbatabatu, why are you using an obsolete partition scheme, i.e. ext2?09:32
batabatuI formatted the drive as ext2 because I read somewhere that that was optimal for a usb drive. Maybe I should use ext4 then09:32
cfhowlettbatabatu, this is for booting ubuntu?09:33

Guest52179 nm-connection-editor says: Invalid setting IPv4 Settings: addresses09:46
totesmuhgoatsi used to have grub installed to /dev/sda1, but now i need it to be installed to the mbr on /dev/sda. if I do grub-install /dev/sda it seems to fix it for my current boot, but i get the feeling that on subsequent boots when apt runs something that updates grub it installs to the partition again09:46
Guest52179when I try to make a static connection09:46
totesmuhgoatshow can i make this change permanent?09:46
neurosis-Format not partition batabatu09:47
cfhowletttotesmuhgoats, "I get the feeling ... " errr, no.  TEST it.  Facts > feelings09:47
batabatuok so create new partition table, then new partition, then format it?09:47
totesmuhgoatscfhowlett, how can i test it? i base my feeling on the fact that when i reboot changes don't seem to be persistent the times that i don't issue grub-install /dev/sda09:48
cfhowletttotesmuhgoats, "... don't seem ..." ?09:48
totesmuhgoatscfhowlett, i agree, i would love to test it, i'm not sure how i can in this case other than to make a change and reboot and see if the change is persistent09:49
totesmuhgoatswhich i have done09:49
batabatucfhowlett: could it be that it's not working because I'm working with a usb drive and not a HDD?09:49
totesmuhgoatsso i am wondering if there's a log or something that you'd like me to consult09:49
cfhowletttotesmuhgoats, does grub menu appear as expected on reboot?09:49
cfhowlettbatabatu, should not matter ...09:49
batabatuhmm I wonder if the thing is physically damaged09:50
totesmuhgoatscfhowlett, i didn't alter the grub menu, but doing something like installing a kernel does not boot into the new kernel unless i have specified grub-setup /dev/sda on the boot when i installed it09:50
batabatualthough it was fine until I tried this09:50
totesmuhgoatslet me try altering the menu and see what happens09:50
cfhowletttotesmuhgoats, ah!  that is definitive.  grub should update with each kernel.  if it's not, you *can* manually update, but that should not be happening09:51
totesmuhgoatscfhowlett, well i figure that there is probably a setting somewhere, but /etc/default/grub doesn't seem to have anything09:51
totesmuhgoatsi'm still deciphering /etc/grub.d/00_header09:51
cfhowletttotesmuhgoats, wait, I'm unclear: IS grub now at /dev/sda?09:52
totesmuhgoatsgrub was at /dev/sda1, but i convereted to btrfs, so now it has to be at /dev/sda which i've done manually. when i do apt operations and it updates grub it updates the one on /dev/sda1 which is inaccessible because of the new filesystem, so i get the copy on the mbr which has not been updated to reflect the changes09:53
* cfhowlett prepares to bail out ...09:53
totesmuhgoatsyea, i'm considering the same myself, i'm pretty sleepy09:54
cfhowletttotesmuhgoats, I understand that btrfs acts differently with grub, but I don't know enough to advise.  sorry.  ask again in channel.  lots of smart(er) folks than I ...09:54
batabatuok so I found I can format the drive as fat32, but when I format it as ext4 it doesn't work...09:55

White_Cathi, I have a question12:05
White_Cathow can I revert this command "sudo ln -sf /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf"12:05
bekksDid you overwrite an existing /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf ?12:06
yecril71plWhat about gnome-user-share?  The configuration applet tells me it cannot work because packages are missing.12:06
linuxmintHello, I'm receiving error: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message. Shouldn't be I tried this, but not sure where to enter ServerName localhost.12:06
yecril71plWhich additional packages does gnome-user-share need to be fully functional?12:07
White_Catbekks no its in /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf12:07
White_Catwkhtmltopdf version in apt-get is greatly outdated12:07
bekksWhite_Cat: That wasnt my question.12:07
bekksWhite_Cat: Did a file /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf exist before you used that command?12:07
White_Catno it didnt12:07
bekksThen you can just remove the /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf12:07
White_CatI purged wkhtmltopdf related files12:07
White_Catah thats easy :)12:08
White_Catdo I have to restart the server for this to work?12:10
White_Cator is there a way to list links?12:11
bekksYou dont need to restart anything, and what do you mean by "list links"?12:12
White_CatI think it was removed because it doesnt work anymore12:12
White_Catthe exact problem I have is https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/110512:12
bekksYou asked on how to remove it, I told you.12:12
White_CatI know12:13
White_Catit was very helpful12:13
yecril71plI reinstalled and started gnome-user-share12:15
yecril71plHow do I access the share?12:15
bekksyecril71pl: that has nothing to do with NFS :)12:15
yecril71plI hoped it would be easier than NFS :-)12:16
bekksEasier than NFS? You will not found a filesharing mechanism like that.12:16
YamakasYwhy is it possible to run a ubuntu mirror on centos but no centos mirror on ubuntu ?12:16
bekksyecril71pl: It is perfectly possible, why wouldnt it?12:17
bekks"a centos  mirror" is nothing but a http/ftp/rsync file storage.12:17
YamakasYI don't see it anywhere12:19
cfhowlettYamakasY, where/how do you document: "not possible to run centos mirror on ubuntu"12:19
bekksYamakasY: You dont see what anywhere?12:19
YamakasYI see people running ubuntu mirrors on centos, but not the other way aorund :S12:19
YamakasYbekks: google on it12:19
bekksYamakasY: Then create a centos mirror on ubuntu if you like to have to have on.12:19

=== CyberJacob|Away is now known as CyberJacob
YamakasYbekks: and for Ubuntu it's different ?12:20
bekksYou need apache2, ftp or rsync - and a bunch of files.12:20
linuxmintI can't access the web interface. apache2 seems to be running.12:20
bekksYamakasY: No. It isnt different for any distro.12:20
YamakasYbekks: I use apt-mirror on Ubuntu now, is that just rsync or so ?12:20
MonkeyDustlinuxmint  if you're using mint: it has its own channel12:21
cfhowlett!mint | linuxmint12:21
ubottulinuxmint: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org12:21
YamakasYMonkeyDust: maybe he runs Ubuntu too ?12:22
linuxmintMonkeyDust: Yes, I'm on LinuxMint, but this apache error runs on Ubuntu to run my ZoneMinder server.12:22
bekksYamakasY: It uses http, rsync, or ftp to fetch files. And then it used http, ftp, or sync to share those files. No black magic involved.12:22
YamakasYbekks: ok12:23
ObrienDavewho do the voodoo like you do? ;P12:23
YamakasYbekks: but weird is that apt-mirror is on centos and no "centos-mirror" is on ubuntu :S12:23
MonkeyDustlinuxmint  i missed that part in your question12:23
bekksYamakasY: That MAY be the cause, because Centos does not use apt but rpm... :P12:24
bekksYamakasY: And apt-mirror is specifically targetted to create an APT-based mirror.12:24
YamakasYbekks: centos supports apt12:24
YamakasYsure thing12:24
bekksYamakasY: If you like to create a Centos mirror, ask the Centos community wether they have a rpm mirror script.12:25
YamakasYkinda weird but it does12:25
bekksYamakasY: Centos doesnt, they translate the packages to rpm ;)12:25
YamakasYbekks: I know, but actually they do12:26
yecril71plapache2: Could not open configuration file /usr/share/gnome-user-share/dav_user_2.4.conf: No such file or directory; spawning httpd failed12:26
YamakasYthey want to take us over :P12:26
bekksYamakasY: They still use RPM. So ask the Centos community wether they have a rpm mirror script. Which they do.12:26
=== ara is now known as Guest72600
YamakasYbekks: oikay!12:27
yecril71plI have dav_user_2.2.conf instead12:27
bekksYamakasY: Why dont you iuse NFS?12:29
bekkswrong tab.12:29
bekksyecril71pl: Why dont you use NFS? Setting up webDAV is far more complicated.12:29
yecril71plWell, I hoped it would be easier, but it seems the package gnome-user-share is broken12:30
yecril71plIt requires a different configuration file than it provides12:31
bekksyecril71pl: There is nothing more easy than NFS file sharing.12:31
YamakasYbekks: indeed, NFS rules, webdav too... but only if a package support it and you don't have to configure yourself12:31
bekksYamakasY: The NFS configuration is a ONE liner.12:31
bekksYamakasY: And it has nothing to do with "package support".12:31
YamakasYbekks: ? I know nfs is a oneliner12:32
YamakasYbekks: no but it respond in general12:32
yecril71plThe downside is that you have to be root on the client12:32
bekksyecril71pl: Which you need to be for all other file share mechanism, too.12:32
bekksyecril71pl: Thats no downside. :)12:32
yecril71plOn the client??12:32
bekksyecril71pl: Yes.12:32
bekksyecril71pl: You cannot mount shares without root privileges OR without root allowing you to mount shares.12:33

schnitzbeing a linux novice, what options do I have?12:49
cfhowlettschnitz, purchase a supported card?12:50
cfhowlett!hardware | schnitz12:50
ubottuschnitz: For lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection12:50
schnitzOh ok so basically it shows up and then its supported or it isn't and thats it... I'll check whether its supported12:51
cfhowlettschnitz, in my observation/experience, if it ain't supported out of the box, it's not worth hacking/cracking to force it.  if the option to replace exists ... also #opensourcemusians may have some guidance for you.12:52
schnitzalright... sounds good. Its a rather old card and it USED to be supported, thats for sure, but I'll dig into that myself...12:54

cfhowlettsoreau, xscreensaver is the app.  the plugins power what you're looking for. BUT xscreensaver has been known to conflict with lightlocker.13:23
soreaucfhowlett: I am well aware of the situation, I just see that the expected one crashes..13:23
soreaucfhowlett: Or for example, GL-Slideshow doesn't allow selecting a driectory of images to use recursively13:25
White_Cathi, I am trying to follow http://acidx.net/wordpress/2014/06/installing-a-mailserver-with-postfix-dovecot-sasl-ldap-roundcube/13:27
White_CatI am a bit puzzled13:27
White_Cat"The following screenshots show the LDAP structure, the necessary objectClasses and attributes"13:27
ikoniawhat part are you puzzled with ?13:27
ikoniado you need ldap ?13:27
White_Catsince I have this on ubuntu-server I have no UI13:27
White_Catyes I need it for a mail server13:28
soreaucfhowlett: I have all xscreensaver* packages installed13:28
ikoniathere are command line tools for ldap13:28
ikoniaand do you need ldap for your mail server ?13:28
White_CatI am not 100% sure13:28
White_Catlet me explain my environment13:28
ikoniaok - so why are you following a guide13:28
ikoniawhy not either a.) research the bits you need b.) find a guide that is trusted that meets your exact requirements13:28
White_CatI have researched13:28
White_CatI always am open to suggestions13:29
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you can't have researched as you have no idea what you need13:29
White_CatAre you going to just judge me?13:29
ikoniaI'm not judging you13:29
White_CatI know exactly what I need13:29
ikoniayou don't as you don't know if you need ldap13:29
White_CatI have users whom do not have accounts on the mailserver13:30
White_Catas in unix accounts13:30
cfhowlettsoreau, I double check that "all".  there is/was a separate list of plugins (community???) that apt-get install - doesn't install.13:30
White_Catso I need to configure a mail server such that users without unix accounts can send and recieve mail from13:30
White_Catvia pop or possibly also imap13:31
White_CatIn my research LDAP seems to be the best solution so far13:31
White_Catconnections to this mail client will all be local13:31
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you're just saying "I want a mail server"13:31
White_CatI am not even half way done explaining myself13:31
ikoniaWhite_Cat: I'd suggest you try to summerise though13:32
ikoniathank you13:33
White_CatThe ubuntu-server running the mailserver will 1) send mail (smtp), recieve mail, users will read their mail through odoo so connections to pop/imap will remain local13:33
White_Cat*The ubuntu-server running the mailserver will 1) send mail (smtp), 2) recieve mail, 3) users will read their mail through odoo so connections to pop/imap will remain local13:34
White_CatI am unsure if LDAP would overcomplicate matters or is the ideal solution13:34
ikoniado you know how to use ldap ?13:34
White_CatI do not13:34
ikoniathen it would overcomplicate things13:35
ikoniaand present a risk to your service13:35
White_Catso what would be an alternative you'd reccomend13:36
ikoniathere are many, virtual users map files, relation databases, etc whatever you are comfortable with13:36
White_Catthis mail server will not recieve any external smtp/pop/imap requests. All would come from one application13:36
White_Catikonia that really answers nothing13:37
ikoniaWhite_Cat: in what way does that not answer ?13:37
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you just asked for alternatives to ldap that will store virtual users with mail services,13:37
White_Cat"so what would be an alternative you'd reccomend"13:37
ikoniaI've offered virtual user map files, and most relational databases,13:37
White_Catthat narrows it how?13:37
White_CatI am fully aware of that13:37
ikoniaWhite_Cat: why did you not select them then ?13:38
ikoniawhy did you rule them out in your previous investigation13:38
White_CatI am not exactly sure how I would use them in the first place13:38
cfhowlettsoreau, xscreensaver extras ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/9623669/13:38
soreaucfhowlett: ok13:38
ikoniaWhite_Cat: they have schemas/structure based on your requirements/design13:39
ikoniaWhite_Cat: it's up to you to determain how you use them13:39
soreaucfhowlett: I have all xscreensaver* packages installed13:39
White_Catwhatever dude, this doesnt help13:39
White_Catsorry I bothered to explain/ask you13:39
ikoniaWhite_Cat: how is this not helping ?13:39
soreauI just want to know the name of a screensaver that shows images from a directory? like a fading slideshow13:39
cfhowlettsoreau, then you have the photo display plugin.  Now you just need to ID and configure the right plugin13:40
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you're asking how to do it, I'm saying it depends on your needs, there are templates out there for certain senarios, but you may need to adapt/change them based on your requirements13:40
White_CatUltimately all you told me is "just use a relation database"13:40
ikoniaWhite_Cat: then you are not paying attention13:40
White_CatI defined you my needs13:40
ikoniaWhite_Cat: I said nothing of the sort13:40
ikoniaWhite_Cat: you didn't define your needs,13:40
White_CatI need a simple system that would habdle login for postfix13:40
White_Cat1) send mail (smtp), 2) recieve mail, 3) users will read their mail through odoo so connections to pop/imap will remain local13:40
soreaucfhowlett: Photopile?13:40
ikoniaWhite_Cat: do you need webmail services ?13:40
soreaucfhowlett: or what is it called in xscreensaver-demo?13:40
White_Catikonia I do not13:41
White_Catusers will not use the mail service directly13:41
ikoniaWhite_Cat: ok - so then discount your previous guide as that is for a webmail service13:41
llutzWhite_Cat: how many users, how often do they change?13:41
deltwhat's the best way to disable a service (ie. samba) without uninstalling it? can i do it by chmod -x a file somewhere?13:41
ikoniallutz: there we go,13:41
cfhowlettsoreau, sorry to say, I haven't used xscreensaver in so long, I don't remember.  but all plugins have a test mode so ... go wild!13:41
White_Catnot often and no more than 10-2013:41
ikoniaWhite_Cat: then why make it complex13:41
ikoniaWhite_Cat: just create 20 locked shell accounts13:41
llutzWhite_Cat: just go with postfix virtual users , flat file for user-definition, done13:41
ikoniaWhite_Cat: no need for any user / auth system13:41
ikoniallutz: I said virtual user file and he said that is not helping13:42
llutzWhite_Cat: like http://www.postfix.org/VIRTUAL_README.html#virtual_mailbox13:42
ikonia10 - 20 static users, I'd look at not even bothering13:42
ikoniajust create the accounts with no valid shells13:42
llutzWhite_Cat: more users or users changing frequently -> mysql for user database (just ONE way)13:42
White_Catmm maybe I can use postgresql13:42
llutzWhite_Cat: any db13:43
ikoniaWhite_Cat: I said this, and you said "thats not helping"13:43
ikonia20 users though...do you really want to have a RDBMS in the middle ?13:43
ikoniait's not exactly large13:43
ikoniaand adds another layer into your system13:43
White_Catthe way llutz answers and you answe is different :/13:43

kaputtubuntuI installed Lubuntu 14.04 (LVM inside LUKS and separate ext4 /boot) besides Windows and Debian. GRUB threw me into rescue mode saying "no such partition" (I did grub-install /dev/sda from chroot). /boot was a logical partition back then. I moved it into a primary one and now it throws me into grub rescue with "Filesystem is unkown".15:25
kaputtubuntuThe only partition I can read from grub rescue using "ls" is the old ext3 Debian partition. For all others (including the ext4 /boot), it complains about unknown filesystem. Partition layout: http://abload.de/img/2014-12-26-135828_102wvas5.png (sda7 Debian, sda3 the new /boot, and sda6 the new Lubuntu-LUKS). What's wrong here?15:25
tomattocfhowlett: clean install is better than eolupdate, why?15:27
squeegilyHey guys. My laptop can't suspend. I've already tried all information on Google, the wiki, forums, etc.15:27
squeegilyIf I manually enter init=/bin/bash in Grub, I can suspend from there15:27
cfhowletttomatto, download the .iso via torrent means no internet interrupt breakage for one15:28
squeegilySo I know it's the init script's "fault", so to speak15:28
cfhowletttomatto, perhaps not an issue for you.  live upgrade won't work here in china ... internet is too slow and flaky15:29
squeegilyI've already tried all combinations of --quirk- stuff, but it seems that whatever init does really breaks it15:29
tomattocfhowlett: torrent is faster in china?15:29
squeegilyIt's encrypted so it'll probably be a smidgen more reliable15:29
squeegilyAnd it's got checksumming15:30
cfhowletttomatto, torrent is faster in most places15:30
squeegilyAnd better bandwidth control15:30
BluesKaj_tomatto, sudo pm-suspend doesn't work for you ?15:30
squeegilyBluesKaj_, It's not working for me15:30
cfhowletttomatto, plus, if interrupted, torrent has safer resume than direct download ...15:30
squeegilySafer and more reliable15:30
squeegilyThe torrent client automatically discards any pieces that got damaged in transit15:31
tomattocfhowlett: i never had problem with direct download, when download was finished successfully15:31
squeegilyDid it pass an md5sum?15:31
BluesKaj_squeegily, ok I misread15:32
squeegilyIf you legitimately downloaded an 800 MB file over an HTTP file in CHINA and not one byte was changed I will have seen everything15:32
cfhowletttomatto, YMMV.  anyway, since you're upgrading so late, I'm guessing you don't do a lot of system maintenance.  suggest you skip 14.10 and install 14.04 .. it's got long term support15:32
cfhowlettsqueegily, I know, right?!15:32

cfhowlett!lts | tomatto15:34
ubottutomatto: LTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)15:34

JackelopeKingI even went so far as to order a new ethernet card to replace my 12+ year old one, but without luck.15:35

squeegilyJackelopeKing: Wow15:35
tomattocfhowlett: i think, that automatic updates handles it automatically...my bad15:35
squeegilyDid you try reinstalling Ubuntu after you put the new card in?15:35
cfhowletttomatto, one more reason for LTS15:35
squeegilySo it will autodetect and install the correct driver from the CD?15:35
bibi234squeegily: how is it related to pure ftp? this is for creating standard users no?15:36

ubottusqueegily, add the nick to avoid confusion: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)15:36
squeegilybibi234: I thought you asked how to create a Unix user15:36
JackelopeKingI did... no luck. I had just reinstalled a few days before because Unity decided to break on me around the same time (currently running gnome shell...)15:36

locutus1Bashing-om, I tried the one older kernel and it still wouldn't boot.20:31

locutus1Bashing-om, :(20:32
smaudetteward: you can't help me if I'm on fedora, no, but you can help with your package system...anyways thanks20:32
bubbasauresshadaloo, So you are comparing one working ubuntu running computer and another as part of your description20:32
smaudetoh ok, just didn't see my comment show up :)20:32
shadaloobubbasaures: as I explained yesterday this is an Ubuntu install on a USB drive20:32
locutus1there a way to apply updates to the system from a live cd?20:32
smaudetteward: if it would mak you happy I could get on my ubuntu machine and the fedora one would still exist, your complaint is a bit silly :P20:33
bubbasauresshadaloo, any attitude gets a free ignore here see yah.20:33
shadaloobubbasaures: you already said you had no idea beyond nomodeset, which did nothing xD20:33
shadaloobubbasaures: see yah20:33

shadalooalright, lesson learned... do not use Ubuntu USB drives on multiple systems xD20:34

shadaloounity just pooped itself20:34
EncryptHow is it possible to make the "mail icon" change color in Unity?20:35
EncryptHow should I handle that?20:35
CrellI have a server that used to be running 12.04, and I just reinstalled with 14.04.  I am getting very very weird errors from it.  Network dies periodically, especially when copying large files, occasional kernel panics, kernel stack error messages, "recursive error detected", etc.20:35
ravigehlotHow do I install just documentation?20:35
CrellI have narrowed it down to a software issue; booting a Live CD from a much older version of Linux works fine, and can copy 100 GB without issue.20:35
EncryptI didn't manage to find my answer on the internet :/20:35
ravigehlotI don't want to install the binaries. Just the documentation.20:35
guntbertshadaloo: seriously: this channel has  currently well over 1600 users, every regular helper talks to about 20-30 people a day - don't expect anyone to remember what you "said yesterday"20:35
CrellBut... the hardware is all 9 years old (aside from 3 new hard drives).20:36
CrellWould a newer kernel (14.04's kernel) *lose* working support for old hardware?20:36
CrellI've not had anything this inconsistent before, certainly not on this system.20:36
Bashing-omlocutus1: In a situation where /init is involved , I always want to insure the file system is intact . Do you have access at this time to a liveDVD(USB) from which we can run a file system check ?20:37
CrellIs 14.04 just a very unstable version, period?20:37
locutus1Bashing-om, I am booting into a live CD right now20:40

EncryptNobody know how the "mail icon" works? :/20:44
lionrougelooks like AMD hasn't released 14.10-compatible driver yet. And with opensource one my videocard's cooler is working at 100% all the time...20:44

TakerHello people. I try to change the keyboard layout in tty. I have a custom one and can load it with 'sudo loadkeys /etc/console-setup/boottime.kmap.gz' without problems. This file is also in /etc/default/keyboard as KMAP, but after a reboot I end up with the German standard keyboard layout. Any suggestions?21:14
locutus1Bashing-om, sure!  thanks!21:14
CrellI've managed to rule out hardware via a live CD and diagnostic tests, which leaves just 14.04 itself.  I actually fell back to that after 14.10 had other issues, too.21:14

TakerIn archlinux it was pretty all I had to do. I have no idea where Ubuntu may set the keyboard for tty still. In X11 it is set as I wish.21:19
ikoniaTaker: it's should be set in the same place21:20

ProfessorKaos64is there a way apt-get can reveal a deb's dependencies?21:32
tewardProfessorKaos64: this should show the dependencies... apt-cache show [package]21:33
EriC^_ProfessorKaos64: apt-cache depends <package>21:33
hakermaniaProfessorKaos64: apt-cache depends [package] is my guess21:33
ProfessorKaos64it's a deb file21:33
ProfessorKaos64not in the repos21:33
hakermaniaProfessorKaos64: then extract the deb file and look inside debian/control file21:34
ProfessorKaos64so I was thinking I can only see that by unpacking it21:34
MonkeyDustProfessorKaos64  use apt-cache -h   for basic help21:34
ProfessorKaos64yea, I supposee I will have to21:34
EriC^_ProfessorKaos64: dpkg -I <package.deb>21:34

locutus1Bashing-om, yep21:36
squintyProfessorKaos64:  iirc, gdebi will check dependancies before unpacking/installing.  if dependancies are not satisfied then it will tell you21:37
locutus1Bashing-om, also says "duplicate or bad block in use"21:37
usrzzr1is it posible if i want to remaster my ubuntu without GUI just console, ?21:37
ProfessorKaos64I could use gdebi instead, true21:37
usrzzr1*is it posible if i want to remaster my ubuntu without GUI just console, ? (but without download anything)thx21:38
ikoniausrzzr1: that seems an odd thing21:38
locutus1Bashing-om, http://paste.ubuntu.com/962633321:39
Bashing-omlocutus1: Yhen manually is -> sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/sda1 <- . I do not trust myself to be smarter than the system to fix the errors. why the -f -y -v flags are in place.21:39
ikoniausrzzr1: you could use the minimal install or the server install,21:39
locutus1Bashing-om, ok21:39
ikoniausrzzr1: the desktop and all it's tools are designed to work with a desktop, so removing the desktop would mean a lot of things won't work21:39

locutus1Bashing-om, seems to be reporting the same thing over and over?21:41
locutus1it isnt21:42
usrzzr1ikonia, i want simple . server? . no. i don't need server. just desktop.21:42
locutus1Bashing-om, seems to be bouncing back and forth between the same two messages21:42

ararobnickander, got it to work eventually. You have to create a .desktop file, and run it like an application, and point it to a bash script, with Exec=lxterminal --working-directory=/home/user/ -e "./script.sh"21:44
ikoniausrzzr1: fine, then install the ubuntu server image21:44
=== bob is now known as Guest79778

Angeles4fourmy new 1440p monitor that i got today on boxing day can't scale to its max res. i am stuck at 1080p.  my GPU (GTX 560 Ti) is fully capable of 2560x1600 according to the official nvidia specs.  ive tried both my mini-HDMI and DVI input.  nvidia-settings doesn't give me an option higher than 1080p. what else could i try?21:46
locutus1Bashing-om, ok.  so looking at that, just one question, where it says the fsck.ext4 bit, should the drive be /dev/sda or /dev/sda1?21:46
ikoniaonto: how did you install it ?21:46
nickanderararob: wow, that sounds nonsensical21:46
mojtabaEriC^_: Could u please take a look at the last link?21:46
locutus1Bashing-om, I ask because if I try /dev/sda it says it is in use (it's swap)21:46

ontoikonia: 12.0421:47
locutus1Bashing-om, nm.  I just did swapoff21:48
mojtabaEriC^_: that link is just lspci -vvnn, so u can search it21:48
EriC^_mojtaba: i did, there's no broadcom21:48
ikoniaonto: verify in the package manager if linux-image-generic-lts-raring is present21:48
EriC^_mojtaba: my wireless card shows up with -vvnn21:48
locutus1Bashing-om, but one more question.  when he says to restore the superblock, which one do I use? are they all the same?21:49
Bashing-omlocutus1: We should be working on the file system sda1 ( sda is the complete device) . And seems fsck fixed the allocations .. maybe ?? .. see what 1st test now reports before sparring of the block.21:49

ontoikonia: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9626400/21:51
Bashing-omlocutus1: Yes, those spare blocks are all the same .. They are the spares in the event that the in-use super block gets corrupted ( might be what we have here ) .21:51
locutus1Bashing-om, hmm21:51
locutus1Bashing-om, tried restoring one, still got a bunch of errors21:52
ikoniaonto: looks good,21:52
locutus1rebooted and still kernel panics21:52
ikoniaonto: manually verify your grub.cfg21:52
EriC^_mojtaba: yes i think so21:52
ontoikonia: I checked, the menuentry is there21:52
ikoniaonto: where exactly.21:52
ikoniaonto: as in what is the path to the file.21:53
EriC^_mojtaba: try sudo apt-get install broadcom-sta-source21:53
EriC^_mojtaba: and sudo apt-get install broadcom-sta-common21:53
ontoikonia: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9626412/21:53
ikoniaonto: what is the name/path of that file21:54
ontoikonia: /boot/grub/grub.cfg21:54
ikoniaonto: is this a dual boot system at all ?21:54
ontoikonia: I have other distros on some partitions and windows21:55
EriC^_mojtaba: which ubuntu are you using?21:55
ikoniaonto: yeah, I think we see the problem21:55
ikoniaonto: whats the other distro21:55
ontoikonia: I have debian and Linux Mint21:57
ikoniaonto: one of them is controlling grub21:57
ikoniaonto: this is why grub2 does not work on dual boot21:57
ikoniaonto: it requires /etc from the host distro, which as debian/mint can't see your ubuntu /etc partition and vice versa21:57
arunguys, what app is used by the devs to maintain the packages...?21:58
ikonia"maintain the package" ??21:58
ikoniaarun: what's your actual problem/question21:58
ontoikonia: would it work if I boot into one of those (whichever is controlling grub) and run update-grub from that?21:59
locutus1Bashing-om, are you thinking this is a hardware failure or software?21:59
arunikanobori: sorry i mean the repo21:59
ikoniaonto: no, as it can't see /etc on the ubuntu system, which is where the config files for that distro is21:59
ikoniaarun: what is the acutal problem ?22:00
EriC^_mojtaba: ? 14.10?22:00
BorisLaSaucisseHi. What's the best DNS to use?22:01
Bashing-omlocutus1: Well, Think that it might behoove us to see if we can mount that root partition and copy your data off. Not known that we can even mount it, but we can try .22:01
locutus1Bashing-om, sounds like a plan to me22:01
arunikonia: i want the software/interface used by the ubuntu devs to maintain repository...22:01
ikoniaBorisLaSaucisse: depends on your requirements22:01
ikoniaarun: it's called "bash"22:01
locutus1Bashing-om, will this allow me to either reinstall and just clone stuff back to a new install?22:01
ikoniaarun: and "rsync"22:01
arunikonia: so, they do all manually?22:02
ikoniaarun: well tools such as jenkins for example, bit that will still execute jobs such as bash shells scripts and rsync to push out22:02
ikoniaarun: packges will have to go through the test cycle before they are pushed to live servers22:02
ontoikonia: is there a way to solve this? Any pointers?22:03
Bashing-omlocutus1: just a precaution IF we do (RE-)install. and still testing to see if that is what is going to be the result .22:03
BorisLaSaucisseikonia: privacy concern22:03
locutus1Bashing-om, sounds good.  what should I do? :)22:03
ikoniaBorisLaSaucisse: whats the issue you want to solve22:03
ikoniaonto: it's a hard question, some people will give you hacks/tricks, I personally don't believe grub2 is fit for dual booting multiple distros22:04
BorisLaSaucisseikonia: I dont trust my ISP, neither Google DNS or OpenDNS.22:04
ikoniaBorisLaSaucisse: then find someone you do trust22:04
BorisLaSaucisseikonia: do you know a good one?22:04
arunikonia: so, is the whole repo maintained by a single guy?22:04
ikoniaBorisLaSaucisse: thats up to you, you seem to not trust people, I can't tell you who to trust, it's your own crazy requirements that decide who you trust22:05
ikoniaarun: no, it's pulled from debian, and maintained by teams22:05
ontoikonia: Thank you for the help! I'll look around.22:05
ikoniaonto: sorry to be negative about it22:05
ontoikonia: It's fine. :)22:05
ikoniaonto: just being honest22:05
