wafflej0ckmodelengine, np you can try lsusb to see connected USB devices too but like you said sounds like the system thinks it's all good too... not sure what else to check about the spooling00:00
modelenginewafflej0ck, cpika: should i try to install it via the cups?00:00
wafflej0ckmodelengine, really recently I've just gone with the proprietary drivers for the printers cause then it installs the scanning capabilities too and SimpleScan does a nice job... simply scanning.  But if cpika can guide you on CUPS or has alternatives you may want to try that first to avoid installing binaries with no possibility of getting source.00:01
modelenginewafflej0ck: cool, thanks00:02
modelenginewafflej0ck: cpika: I did try installing it via cups first. do you think that may have messed something up?00:03
cpikamodelengine: hm, how exactly did you try to set up the printer? the folder you downloaded should include an install script...00:03
=== Maras is now known as Marasgeon
modelenginecpika: is that the .sh file?00:04
cpikamodelengine: not sure what an incorrect cups setup can do. I would open a terminal and type: 'cd Downloads/uld' enter, and then 'sudo ./install.sh'00:05
cpikamodelengine: of course, the printer should be plugged in and turned on00:05
modelenginecpika: ok just sec, oh, and yes it is plugged in and turned on :)00:05
MarasgeonHey guys in opensubtitles.org the site opens and pops up a window for username and password (authentication required, The site says "Meh"), what's the matter?00:05
squintyMarasgeon:  not really on topic for this channel but that doesn't happen here.  maybe try clearing your browers cache00:07
Marasgeonsquinty: thanks a lot, I'll chech it00:08
modelenginecpika: so after that it says this: http://imgur.com/7Wx33jM   what option should i choose?00:08
Ace2Racehi can anyone teach me how to use aircrack00:09
squintyAce2Race:  not a topic for this channel00:09
wafflej0ckmodelengine, since it's USB not network connected just do n, enter00:09
k1lAce2Race: not in this channel. if you need to use it you can take the time to read the manual. we are not helping here to hack the neighbours wifi00:09
Ace2Racei understand00:10
modelenginewafflej0ck: alrighty, it installed successfully. what would be my next step (sorry, I'm a real noob here)00:11
cpikamodelengine: try to print something00:11
wafflej0ckmodelengine, no worries just go try and print something is the easiest way00:11
cpikamodelengine: perhaps you will see the same printer several times (from the previous setup and from the new setup...) - try to choose the new one.00:11
Marasgeonsquinty: It worked, thank you very much, have  a good night!00:12
squintyMarasgeon:  good to hear. :)00:12
modelenginewafflej0ck: cpika: cool alright just sec00:14
cpikawafflej0ck: would you generally prefer open-source drivers for printers, these days?00:15
Ace2Racei need direct3d driver... but how do i get it00:16
modelenginecpika: wafflej0ck: and to think you guys don't even get paid for this! Thank you soooooo much!!!00:16
modelengineIt worked!!!00:16
wafflej0ckcpika, eh I just prefer open source if it's available and works, for the sake of being able to debug and just the better ethos00:16
wafflej0ckmodelengine, awesome glad to hear it00:16
wafflej0ckcpika, but for printers specifically MFP stuff with scanners seems the proprietary stuff works well00:17
modelenginewafflej0ck: cpika: I really appreciate the hour long free tech support you gave me. If I tried to call someone, I would be into it for over a hundred bucks right now!00:18
cpikawafflej0ck: okay. and if they work, I find the open-source drivers more reliable, in general. and no problems with updates.00:18
cpikamodelengine: glad your problem is solved. have fun with your printer.00:18
modelenginethanks both of you :)00:18
wafflej0ckmodelengine, don't remind me I charge $100 an hour... :)  really though no worries, you weren't being crazy and didn't take much time to solve, glad you're up and running00:19
modelenginemuch appreciated00:19
c3m0just a q i'm trying to setup cryptkeeper bu can't find system tools. i'm fairly new to linux in general00:22
wafflej0ckcpika, yeah for straight printing it's fine most of the time (apparently some problem in this specific case) and hplip is open source and typically works well and it looks like canon has GPL drivers too just no support offered http://www.usa.canon.com/nw3s/CanonUSA/DownloadContents/English/0100344001EN.htm00:22
wafflej0ckcpika, I dunno about the Samsung ones though as I haven't had one of my own for a few years (had a cheap black and white laser one at some point but before I used Ubuntu daily)00:23
c3m0If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.00:27
wafflej0ckc3m0, you have regular Ubuntu installed?00:27
c3m0yep ubuntu 14.04.x00:28
wafflej0ckc3m0, if so just hit winkey and type system and you should see matches you can also try settings that might be what you're after... I'm in Ubuntu Gnome edition so it's slightly different for the "control panel/settings" in here00:29
wafflej0ckc3m0, the winkey in Ubuntu opens the dash (button the the top left and searches across all your apps (and other stuff)00:29
wafflej0ckI use too many parenthesis sorry bad habit from programming00:30
wafflej0ckc3m0, did you install it and just trying to configure it or?00:31
c3m0I already installed it via apt-get just need to configure00:32
c3m0I need it to "attach" itself to top pannel basically00:32
wafflej0ckc3m0, not sure as I haven't used it but in the comments someone says, gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"00:33
wafflej0ckthey say if you run that in the command line it'll show up in the panel00:33
wafflej0ckc3m0, just installed it since it looks interesting and it shows up in the Gnome tray here but yeah looks like that command should fix it in Unity00:34
c3m0No such schema 'com.canonical.Unity.Panel' welp00:34
wafflej0ckc3m0, hmm yeah that was for 12.04 actually... I wonder if you use dconf-editor or gconf-editor if you could find the appropriate setting but really not sure00:35
UnnamedUser9961Had a quick question about networking.  I'm trying to share some folders from my trusty Ubuntu machine.  I have it partially working.  I can see windows shares in Ubuntu, but I can only see the ubuntu machine in windows - the shares are not showing up.  Any one think this could be a SMB version issue?00:36
c3m0meh ... maybe i'll install ubuntu gnome have you used both reg ubuntu and gnome ? how do they compare ?00:37
=== Yukinotteru is now known as Yukitteru
wafflej0ckc3m0, yeah I used Ubuntu from like 10.04 on pretty regularly and was using Unity till 12.04 (20-year.month) then I decided to try out KDE cause it was looking interesting and Unity changed some things I didn't like, KDE was cool but did take quite a bit in terms of resources, and was infinitely tweakable but I lost time tweaking it and messing with things, Gnome is clean and simple and more out of the way I'm really loving it bu00:39
wafflej0ckt check out some vids first00:39
wafflej0ckc3m0, you can actually just install gnome-desktop to try it out too00:40
wafflej0ckc3m0, but if you like it I would clean install to get rid of the Unity stuff since I'm on SSD and space matters, plus just like things more "pure"00:40

c3m0that does look rather nice ...00:43
wafflej0ckc3m0, yeah winkey still gives you a quick search like the dash too00:43
Guest48251c3m0: So what is the funky stuff?00:44
c3m0I read a while back that gigabytes dual bios thing was screwing with ubuntu installs00:45
=== panda is now known as Guest15111
c3m0it's either that or my ram from an unknown manufacturer00:46
c3m0but i highly doubt ram would have anything to do with an ubuntu install :p00:47
squintyUnnamedUser9961:  might want to try  system-config-samba  (available via repo's)00:47
wafflej0ckc3m0, yeah agree I imagine chipsets on the board are all Ubuntu is talking to at the lowest level00:47
Guest48251c3m0: RAM is either good or bad or partially bad. But it can get in the way of an OS install if it is partially bad.00:47
wafflej0ckc3m0, not sure about the gigabyte dual bios issue though00:47
c3m0oh crap ... i've been using 2x4GB sticks from two different manufacturers one of which i have no idea who made them00:48
wafflej0ckyeah you can run a memtest to figure out if it's RAM pretty easily though, lots of boot CDs will do it or in Grub pretty sure you can usually kick it off there too, but if the main system doesn't have a problem like random crashes it seems unlikely still00:49
c3m0i mean 2x4GB x2 btw so 16GB total00:49
Guest48251c3m0: About ram tests:  Plan to let it run for many hours. (Sometimes the defect(s) will show in the first few minutes, sometimes not so soon.)00:50
wafflej0ckyeah takes time00:50
c3m0i will do that00:50
Guest48251c3m0: I usually do ram test at night, (while I sleep).00:51
Guest48251or when at work.00:51
c3m0brb gonna wipe this VM and try out ubuntu gnome :D00:52
Jaboubuntu gnome is all i use00:53
wafflej0ckyeah aside from Nautilus dropping the split pane view I have very few complaints and that's a small one00:54
c3m0I like ubuntu because when i used it in the past it was really hard to learn and the troubleshouting was unreal so it really thought me a lot00:54
c3m0and then i started using windows again and i completely forgot00:55
wafflej0ckeh it's okay you'll forget Windows just as easily :P00:55
Jaboi don't like using windows now00:55
Jaboi don't like how it *feels*00:55
c3m0meh i can work with both00:56
wafflej0ckI just installed some windows VMs using this ievms script for the sake of testing sites in IE and yeah it all came back to me but it does feel horrible now (granted these were XP images for some of them)00:56
c3m0for some reason i hate the command line on windows though ...00:56
Guest48251c3m0: Yea, no need to forget anything :)00:56
wafflej0ckc3m0, it's terrible that's why :)00:56
wafflej0ckc3m0, if they fixed the CLI to be POSIX compliant and had a package manager (which I think is coming in 10) I'd consider it again00:57
Guest48251c3m0: Yea, I suppose cli on MS Windows feels a bit confining or limited after being exposed to ours00:57
c3m0i think the furthest i got in windows cmd was "ipconfig" :D00:57
wafflej0ckc3m0, the power shell and VBS scripts let you do a lot but they're still a nightmare00:57

wafflej0ckas a web dev it's so much easier to find shell scripts that do what I need to get done, and so much great open source (and many times free) software really00:58
c3m0alrighty gnome's almost installed01:00
wafflej0ckI did Windows IT work and networking for years but got a BS in CS and do web development, much of the programming community is on OS X or Linux so really you're more on your own in Windows... Visual Studio is has been and is a pretty nice tool but they're playing catch up on the JS/Web Dev side for sure, a terminal and commands to make it POSIX compliant and a shell so you could run the same .sh files in Windows too would make i01:00

c3m0oh crap i forgot that installing vmware on a non os drive still still stores the actual data for the vms under documents01:04
wafflej0ckc3m0, heh, sorry don't know VMWare, I use VirtualBox you can just move the files with VirtualBox and update the VM settings to point to the new location for the HDD01:05
c3m0i can prob do that but this is my first time using vmware01:06
tewardwafflej0ck: ehhh, careful with that - the .vmx files like to be stupid and use hardcode paths sometimes01:06
c3m0so no idea how ... guess i'll go ask my lord and savior googol01:06
tewardc3m0: i use VMware for my VM environment, are you using player or workstation01:07
tewardc3m0: you can remove the VM from Workstation without removing the files on disk01:07

EdlerHey guys01:17
Edleri need someone to help me with a very small bash script!01:17
kuchikuuI'm a noob but maybe you can say what's going on and someone will answer:P01:17
Edleryou see, i want to always call the curl command with a --interface eth0:1 argument01:17
Edlerso my idea is to rename curl to curl-real01:18
kuchikuunano curl-real01:18
Edlerthen create a bash script called curl, that would call the real curl and append that argument to the existing ones01:18
kuchikuuwrite curl --interface eth:1 $101:18
kuchikuuthen chmod +x curl-real01:18
Edler$1 does the trick ?01:18
Edlerwrites all arguments ?01:18
gr33n7007hEdler, alias it?01:18
kuchikuuof course if you allowed the bash shell to gain access to your ~/bin01:19
Edleralright let me try it out!01:19
kuchikuuAll would be $@01:19
EriC^^Edler: just alias it01:19
EriC^^alias curl0='curl --interface eth0:1'01:20
=== MichaelC1 is now known as MichaelC|Server
EriC^^then curl0 <arguments here>01:20
Edleralright that worked01:20
kuchikuuthat's a nice idea XD surely easier than "my" way01:21
kuchikuuwhat worked, alias or ~/bin ?01:21
Edlerbut that didn't solve my real problem01:21
Edleri moved curl to curl-real01:21
Edlerand wrote a script caleld curl01:21
Edlerthis worked01:21
Edlerhowever my php5-curl is still failing01:21
Edlerdoesn't php5-curl simply call curl?01:22
wafflej0ckEdler, you can check the source01:22
kuchikuuprobably  it calls curl, but not the curl-real01:22
Edleryup but it's not01:23
wafflej0ckEdler, looks like it uses libcurl so maybe doesn't call the system command just uses the library01:23

sector_0allmountainpro, what kind of advice do you need?01:37
jeffrey_fallmountainpro: what is your desired outcome.  Please explain what os's, etc01:38
squintyallmountainpro:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI  see if anything applicable for your system01:38
allmountainprosector_0: how to do it from live cd without breaking windows01:38
EriC^^allmountainpro: do what?01:38
sector_0allmountainpro, well it's actually not that hard01:39
sector_0when you install from a liveCD you'll be given the option to install alongside the existing OS01:39
sector_0which in this case would be windows01:39
allmountainprosector_0: i want to install it on wifeys laptop as she has better hardware for coding, testing etc01:39
jeffrey_fallmountainpro: BUT, just in case, make sure you have a backup of your data.01:41
sector_0allmountainpro, like I said after you run the installation program, you'll be given an option to install alongside the existing windows OS01:41
sector_0after that, it's just a matter of setting up a couple thing (username, location etc)01:41
sector_0but mostly the installation script takes care of everything01:41
sector_0you don't really have to do/know much01:42
runbumI was formatting an external hard drive in ubuntu 14.10, when the process was interrupted. Now I can't get my drive to mount. It's a new drive, so there is no data I need to recover. I just need to know if there is any way to get it to mount.01:43
daftykinsnuke it?01:43
daftykinswhy mount what isn't working?01:44
runbumI accidentally cancelled the formatting process.01:44
squintyallmountainpro:  some rascals seem to experience problems when toggling on the "download updates and priority software" during the installation.  might want to enable those after installation has finished.01:44
daftykinsrunbum: so do it again...?01:44
jeffrey_frunbum: System Tools>>Preferences>>disks.  Remove the partition and reinstate it and try again01:45
runbumIt won't mount.01:45
jeffrey_frunbum: make sure you have the right disk01:45
daftykinsrunbum: mounting is the process of gaining access to a file system, you didn't format, therefore you cannot mount. i think you're using the wrong term.01:45
runbumOK, thanks. I'm kind of new to this.01:45
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, yeah I second everything sector_0 said and would emphasize make a full backup before you make major changes like this01:45
Edlerhey guys01:46
Edlerneed help with something else now01:46
Edlerhere's my network interfaces01:46
Edlerwhen i use curl it uses eth0 by default01:46
Edlerwhat should i do so that the eth0:1 becomes the default one01:46
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, if you have a large enough extra drive you can use clonezilla to duplicate the disk to image files that can be restored with the same clonezilla boot CD01:46
Edleror that the eth0:1 information/ip become the eth001:46
Edlerwhat would the new configuration be ?01:47
Edlercan i just change auto eth0 eth0:1 to auto eth0:1 eth0 ?01:47
sector_0allmountainpro, also after the installation, after the POST screen you'd be prompted to select which OS to load01:49
sector_0and that's about it01:49
wafflej0ckEdler, no you'd want to change the iface lines since those are defining the IPs to be used for the different interfaces, don't believe the auto line will matter...01:49
Edlerso in the iface lines i just swap the word eth0 with eth0:1 and vice versa ?01:50
wafflej0ckEdler, yeah believe that would do it, you may need to ifdown and ifup the interface or restart though not entirely sure how to have it reload the file, auto just tells it to fire up those interfaces when ifup -a is run01:52
wafflej0ckEdler, http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man5/interfaces.5.html01:52
wafflej0ckEdler, also hope this is a machine you can login to locally cause otherwise fiddling with the network config is risky business01:53
runbumHi again. I went to the disk utility, and it says my external hard drive is all unallocated space. There are no partitions, it seems. So how can I format it?01:53
daftykinsrunbum: make a partition. use gparted.01:54
allmountainprosector_0: thanks a bunch01:54
runbumok. Does it matter where I place the partition?01:55
Guest48251runbum: What type of partition(s) do you want to use?  And what filesystem do you want to use?01:55
daftykinsrunbum: what are you trying to do? why not just one from the start to the finish?01:55
wafflej0ckrunbum, in the disks interface you should be able to add a new partition, then you should be able to select format... like daftykins says gparted is the trusty older one, once you have a partition made and format the partition with some filesystem then you can mount it01:55
Edleri swapped my eth0 and eth0:1 interfaces01:56
Edlerbut curl magically switched as well!01:56
allmountainprosector_0: do you by chance know how to make my external hdd a working linux box? not a live session but a full versionn that will boot when i plug it in and change the bios to boot off external hdd01:56
Edlerit's using eth0:1 by default01:56
Edlerwhy? how odes curl decide which interface to choose by default ?01:56
runbumI want to use eft4. That is why I was formatting. To change from ntfs.01:56
Guest48251runbum: (If it is unallocated space, you'll first create partition(s), and them format them.)01:56

sector_0allmountainpro, never did it, but it should be too hard01:57
gr33n7007hdaftykins, ok :)01:57
runbumOK. Like I said, I'm new to this. I only want one partition.01:57
sector_0if you boot from the liveCD with the external HDD plugged in, does it show up as a drive?01:57
daftykinsrunbum: so what do you mean asking 'where' to put it?01:57
daftykinshelp us out here.01:58
Guest48251runbum: So if it is an external HD, (and you're not in need of non-destructive partitioning, just use fdisk or cfdisk to create a partition). I prefer fdisk01:58
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, I sort of did this to setup an external USB drive (1TB) to run clonezilla to be able to backup/restore systems without even needing a CD but it took some fiddling01:58
allmountainprosector_0: not too sure,  let me try and ill get back on here and let you know  from live session01:58
allmountainprowafflej0ck: care to elaborate?01:59
runbumThanks Guest 48251. I'll try that, and get back to you if there are any probs.01:59
Guest48251runbum: fdisk /dev/sdf (where sdf is really the drive you are wanting to partition) sudo fdisk -l  #To list drives and their respective partitions.01:59
daftykinsi already said gparted.01:59
daftykinsway to confuse the newbie ;)01:59
allmountainprowafflej0ck: id like mine to run linux02:00
Guest48251runbum: If you want to use a GUI tool, use gparted as daftykins suggests.02:00
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, looks like there are some instructions here that basically say to just disable/disconnect the internal drive then do a regular install to the USB drive, but I personally did something to setup the USB drive to be formatted properly to boot (think it had to have some small partition aligned at the right sector for it to work) but perhaps these instructions work https://www.suse.com/communities/conversations/how-cr02:01
liberalPIGSrunbum: Yes02:01
liberalPIGSwafflej0ck: sure02:01
runbumI need to keep it simple, so I'll try the GUI option with gparted first. Thanks again.02:03

wafflej0ckmint, yeah so you may be able to disable it in your BIOS if not honestly removing the HDD may not be a bad plan, they're typically one of the easier components to remove assuming you don't have a mac or netbook it shouldn't be too bad if you can't disable it within the BIOS settings03:02

Here is the line in fstab mounting the partition: http://pasteb03:12

revorekon if i can get my hands on one, then i would be able to fix my partition / boot/ os problem in one go03:21
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, yeah it's fine what you can do is boot to the live session, use lsblk to see what devices are there (without the USB one connected) connect the USB and do lsblk again and you should see a new entry, use the command from EriC^^ with the device name for the internal drive (the one that showed up on lsblk in both instances)03:21

wafflej0ckallmountainpro, alternatively look up how to just remove the internal drive, on many machines it's an easy process, if you can find a youtube walkthrough with your model you can see if it's worth doing, this is usually a serviceable part so it's easy to remove03:22
runbumOK. I was able to execute the first part of the command, and the packages loaded up just fine, but when I typed in "sudo parted - l  | pastebinit" the terminal came back with "Error: Could not stat device - - no such file or directory." Sorry for all the problems....pulling my hair out.03:23

Foxhoundzteward: curious. Who decides to update the ubuntu repo?04:13
WillW_daftykins: adding group ID to fstab did not have any effect :(04:14
daftykinsWillW_: answer has to be in the logs somewhere, unless your share definition in smb.conf is funny04:14
tewardFoxhoundz: it's usually not updated without good reason, except every new Ubuntu release, to prevent breakage of things that might depend on other items, and such04:15
coltaine`hi, having problems with bluetooth headset after resume, works fine on fresh boot, after resume, it only works if it's close to the laptop... like a foot away... i've tried reloading btusb, rfcomm, bluetooth modules, nothing works, thanks04:15
daftykinsrunbum: so in the upper right you need to click "/dev/sda" and change it to /dev/sdb04:15
WillW_daftykins: it is funny. Because the share def isn't there. I'm not sure how it even shows up on the network. Is there another smb.conf that isn't located in /etc/samba?04:16
tewardFoxhoundz: which ubuntu version are you on04:17

aeorilI installed node.js binaries from a tar.gz on the Joyent website.  I just tar xzf'ed it into my home directory, pointed a soft link to the directory and put the path tot he binary directory in my path and it just worked.  I was a little surprised - are the differences between different binary installs really more to do with different package managers than the compiled binaries?04:26
dns53aeoril binaries expect the libraries in the same place and to be the same or similar versions. Most binaries statically link the libraries to get around this so it should work the same but then you don't receive updates on those libraries04:30

skwishyI'm kinda lost about bluetooth, I was hoping there would be more useful logs somewhere, but so far, I haven't found them05:39
runbumOne problem might be that I (stupidly) used the "erase" long duration option of formatting. I don't know why, since there was nothing to erase, but could that be an issue?05:39

wlxmhlsphunyguy: it is better to detect audio/video working state: when audio/video is working, no blank screen.07:40
allmountainprowafflej0ck: does gparted walk you through it?07:40
jerrcsmonst: correct. it might not be what you are looking for honestly07:40
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, not really but it gives you all the stuff in a GUI to do it pretty easily and after you setup the changes you hit apply to commit them all at once when it looks good07:41
allmountainprowafflej0ck: whatss a gui07:41
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, really though just need one partition for the system and a small partition for swap (equal to the size of your RAM ideally)07:41
monstjerrcs: maybe I can force tty1 into a screen a boot that I can connect to.07:41
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, GUI just means graphical user interface, just a windowed application not a terminal thing07:41
allmountainprowafflej0ck: oh ok haha. i am balls deep into setting up 3 more distros. eyes are bleeding lol07:42
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, if you want to have a separate home partition too that can be useful so when you upgrade you leave the home partition with all your user data in it and just wipe out the OS partition, but personally haven't done that07:42
cfhowlett_!home | allmountainpro,07:44
ubottuallmountainpro,: Your home directory is where all of your personal files are usually kept. For moving your home directory to a separate partition, please see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving07:44
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, yeah so with GParted you get a visual diagram of the disk and can right click on partitions to delete them or format them or whatever and it just queues up all the stuff you tell it to do, then when you hit apply it actually runs all those operations to partition the disk and format partitions however you set it up07:44

ubottuallmountainpro: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)07:46
allmountainprowafflej0ck: do i have to make partitions in other format for linux distros or can i make the same?07:47
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, different distros will have different filesystem support to some degree but believe ext4 is pretty widely supported at this point07:48
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, there are some more advanced ones like btrfs and zfs that still have limited support07:48

wafflej0ckallmountainpro, yup er check the distro documentation wikipedia has a list of defaults in here too http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Linux_distributions but doesn't show all the supported ones, and support gets added over time so depends on the version07:52

wafflej0ckallmountainpro, know generally what you're up to but where are you stuck what'd you do so far what are you trying to accomplish exactly at this point08:23
allmountainproI am trying to make partitions before i get into the live cd. ive been told its easier to do before. havent done anything yet so nothing to reverse08:24
allmountainprowafflej0ck: ^08:25
amriunixhi !! how can i setup the default network interface for ubuntu !!! for example : i have wlan0, eth0 and ppp0 . currently ppp0 is the default interface . so how can i set eth0 as a default interfarce without close ppp0 ????08:27
allmountainprowafflej0ck: do you have experience with making partitions08:28
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, typically you can just let the installer setup the partitions for you really unless you want to separately have a home partition, if you want that you should just use gparted from the live disk to setup the partitioning then during the setup you can choose to manually setup your partitions/mount points and assign the appropriate partitions for / /boot /home and your swap space08:31
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, if you don't care so much about keeping the /home separate though you can just let the installer do the partitioning for you08:32
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, it is easier to do partitioning in advance in general since it doesn't have to shift data around the disk it's all just empty space being setup with tables to keep track of the data that will eventually go into the partitions08:33
allmountainprowafflej0ck: can i resize without losing data?08:35
wafflej0ckallmountainpro, I have experience doing it but it's not something I do for my desktop setups in most cases, usually I have a backup running for my home folder so when there are major upgrades I just backup with clonezilla then wipe it all out and restore the data I need from my regular backup, you can resize without losing data but it typically take a lot longer especially if you have to move a partition, and you need to do it a08:36
wafflej0ckll from a live disk too so the partition isn't mounted (think zfs lets you modify things more fluidly without shutdown/reboot but haven't used it yet myself)08:36
mladouxI have a question about 15.04, is anyone testing it, and if so, is it on systemd, or is it still on upstart... I'm waiting for it to get a bit further along in development before I touch it, but I'm just curious.08:37
mwsbmladoux: Might be better to ask in #ubuntu+108:37
mladouxthanks, I will try there, not really a support question either way, but it helps to ask in the right place :)08:38
janolap1hi there, I need help : I have 2 disks on my system. The first one /dev/sda is for dual boot (xp/ubuntu) with 2 patitions /dev/sda1 (boot and xp) and /dev/sda2 (extended for ubuntu). This morning, I wanted to format in Fat32 /dev/sdb1 and unfortunatly I have formatted /dev/sda1 in Fat32. I didn't reboot as I think I loose grub. What can I do ?08:39
janolap1I am in Lubuntu, I have installed testdisk, but don't know what to do next...08:40
wafflej0ckjanolap1, you can re-install grub if need be http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair-restore-reinstall-grub-2-with-a-ubuntu-live-cd08:41
wafflej0ckjanolap1, could try the grub-repair program too if you prefer trying a GUI based thing instead/first08:42
mladouxI'm pretty sure grub would have installed on sda, however, if you want to be sure, you can run `sudo grub-install /dev/sda` minus the quotes, and it should set it up.08:42
janolap1wafflej0ock , mladoux : I think so : grub should be on sda. Is there a mean to restore sda on it's initial state (to get my data back) ? The format operation was really short (1 second). The data must be there again...08:44
mladouxwell, it's only written to the first 512 bytes of the disk, if I recall properly, for the stage one, and stage 2 is loaded from your boot partition of the OS it was installed from.08:45
mladouxso, it really doesn't take more than a second to install it08:46
mladouxthe whole thing won't fit in a normal boot record, especially if you're using MBR, versus GPT. Not sure what the limitations on GPT are.08:46
wafflej0ckjanolap1, typically it's just going to be rewriting the partition table or filesystem information unless you explicitly wipe the drive, there are data recovery solutions that will let you read back the files but they tend to just scan the entire drive and attempt to find data but not really good for recovering the entire system just for recovering really important data08:48
wafflej0ckjanolap1, http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Partition/recovering.html <-- this may be helpful08:49
mladouxoh, I misread I think, did you accidently reformat sda1?08:51
dts|pokeballhey guys... so ive got an ubuntu 14.04 vps, and im trying to install libapache2-mod-fastcgi which according to this http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/libapache2-mod-fastcgi should be in my repos, but its not (searched via apt-cache). can someone help?08:51
mladouxbecause, if so, way out of my league buddy08:51
mladouxdid you run apt-get update?08:51
wafflej0ckjanolap1, http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/80270/unix-linux-undelete-recover-deleted-files <-- this is eluding more to the kind of data recovery stuff I mentioned above and there are services and programs (thining in windows) that will do data recovery for you but like I said that's just for data itself not fixing the partitions08:51
dts|pokeballmladoux, not specifically for this issue, but i have, yes. just a few minutes ago when adding a ppa08:52
mladouxokay, did you install a ppa for the package specifically?08:53
mladouxI know, these questions may sound stupid, I'm just trying to establish a baseline.08:54

Ubnoobtihow do I fix it09:10
mladouxdid you try running `sudo apt-get -f install`09:11
wafflej0ckUbnoobti, you try rebooting since you saw the error to see if some other process is causing dpkg problems09:11
janolap1wafflej0ck : ok, thanks :-)09:11
wafflej0ckUbnoobti, could also try with -f like mladoux says or check /var/log/dpkg.log09:11
mladouxyeah, that should cause it to fix any incomplete package installs09:12
mladouxthe log is useful too, because that will tell you what's broke in most cases.09:12
Ubnoobtifor -f I get E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?09:12

Ubnoobtii spent 4 hours trying to figure it out09:27
Ubnoobtiwafflej0ck: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9633885/09:29
mladouxnotfadssssssss, it seems like, and I'm not sure on this, that the system might be trying to run fsck on an encrypted volume without decrypting it first, mistaking it for a disk that needs to be repaired and thus not booting... I'm looking for a work around.09:30
notfadssssssssmlaudoux: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9633874/ here is a fresh bootlog I might have linked an old copy09:30
wafflej0ckUbnoobti, hmm yeah seems like something got seriously botched with your apt-get when it comes to creating/deleting lock files so it's thinking other apt-get processes are still running or configuration programs09:31
mladouxoh, yeah, this is different, notfadssssssss give me a moment.09:31
Ubnoobtiwafflej0ck:  ???09:32
wafflej0ckUbnoobti, if you are early on in your setup you might want to wipe it all out actually, wanted to try and help just get the immediate issues resolved but not sure about reinstalling apt-get and related components themselves09:32
wafflej0ckUbnoobti, apt-get creates these lock files so you don't run multiple instances at once since that can cause problems (two installs configuring the same files at the same time etc.) but something seems to be very wrong with how apt-get is working on your system09:33
Ubnoobtiwafflej0ck: right... So whats my next step reinstalling ubuntu?09:34
wafflej0ckUbnoobti, if you ask me yea, but you might be able to get more support from others, but like I said if you just did this setup and are having problems with apt-get that seems very suspect of other things that could be wrong... did you or can you run md5sum on the image and check with the md5sum on the site you download from, that checksum should match between the two, good to verify this to be sure your download or burned/USB co09:36

daychildeThanks, just didn't want to spam the channel. hehe. #Xubuntu suggested I try here or #grub; more active here.... So was booting fine to xubuntu/win7 dual boot (haven12:33

daychildeHave done a little bit so far:12:34
momomoHey folks, my ethernet by wired connectoin suddenly stopped working .. you are now offline .. i have tried to restart eh computer and what not.. nothing helps12:34
daychildels shows three partitions: (hd0), (hdo,msdos1), (hd,msdos2). Doing 'ls (hd0)/boot' for all three returns 'unknown file system'. Doing 'set' returns three parms, prefix, cmdpath, root. All reference hd0. Tried 'set boot=(hd0)', then 'insmod normal', but that returns unknown filesystem. Rebooting and boot= goes away.12:36
daychildeAnd finally, bootinginto livecd (which takes long time on ancient computer), gparted ran >30mins searching, nothing. But harddrive appears, but only Windows part. :/12:37
daychildeoh, and I know it'ls all NTFS12:37
Freed309I think Dual Booting sort of messed up your PC XD12:37
daychildeProbably, but it has been running this configutation for months if that helps12:38
daychildeno recent changes. upgraded to 14.10 a couple weeks ago I think12:38
Freed309I'm not too knowledgable about that. But the bootloader seems to have been messed up. And it can happen spontaneously.12:38
daychildeI believe that :)12:38

littlebithi people, I wanted to copy the settings and configurations gvim from one xubuntu host to another. The dumb thing is that I thought that it would work. Now I'm standing here with a vim that gives me error messages every time when I start it.12:55
littlebitcan someone help12:55
daychildeCrap. Okay, I ran Boot-Disk-Repair and now I get a Windows boot manager that says it can't start. But I don'lt want Windows at all.... any advice on how to get back to my xubuntu installation? D:13:11
daychildegonna run it again and poke around, just hoping for advice. lol13:15
daychildeSo I can see Windows files in /mnt/boot-sav/sda2 but no Xubuntu anything anywhere... can anyone help me see it if exists? gparted only shows sda1 and sda2. boot is on sda1. And this was what I had as of a few weeks ago - somehow xubuntu was running inside the windows partition......... does that make sense?13:27
ikoniadaychilde: is this a wubi install ?13:28
ikoniait certainly sounds lke it13:28
daychildesorry, don't know what that is. When I installed, used LiveCD if that helps... at least, I'm pretty sure I did....13:28
daychildei'll google what that is, brb13:29
daychildeI don't recall anything about wubi when I installed, but I13:30
daychildeI'm somewhat of a liux newbie. Is there a way I can check to see?13:30
k1l_daychilde: did you install ubuntu into own partitions? or did you install that inside windows?13:31
daychildeTo the best of my memory, I isntalled from livecd and I don'lt know enough to manually set partitions, so I let it do it. But IIRC, I do only have these two partitions in gparted because I was going to resize xubuntus to make it larger, but couldn't figure out how13:32
ikoniadaychilde: how many disks do you have in the system13:32
daychildecan say grub came up and offered boot options when I booted... I'm sorry I'm a newbie on this :/13:33
daychildeone physical drive13:33
k1l_daychilde: can you show a "sudo fdisk -l" (small L at the end) into a pastebin13:33
ikoniadaychilde: when you say you installed from a livecd, did you boot the livecd, or put the CD in while running windows and click install ?13:33
daychildesure, working13:33
daychildeboot livecd, I could swear, but it has been several months. brb with pastebin13:33
ikoniait's going to be a wubi install13:36
daychildeso... I probably suck. lol. Any way to blow away Windows and get back my xubuntu, or..... can I safely reinstall Windows and then reinstall as wubi (and I can copy my data and blow it all away and screw dual booting)?13:37
ikoniadaychilde: what is your end goal ?13:37
daychilde1) however13:37
daychilde1) however I can, get back xubuntu. Don't care about windows. or 2) I have external drive, if I can copy files from Windows partition and use them to get xubuntu somehow...... like backup files, blow away hd, install fresh xubuntu, restore files13:38
daychildeif that akes sense13:38
daychilde*makes, sorry13:38
ikoniawhats your end target system, ubuntu, windows, dual boot ?13:38
daychildexubuntu only13:38
daychildescrew Windows heh13:39
ikoniadaychilde: so why don't you just re-install xubuntu properly ?13:39
ikoniaunless I've miss-understood you13:39
daychildeIf I do that right now, will I lose my previous installation? I was in middle of changing backups so I do have valuable data I don't want to lose if possible13:39
ikoniadaychilde: when you boot the machine, what happens, does it go to grub or boot straight into windows ?13:40
daychildebooting machine after boot-repair disk auto repair goes to Windows boot manager which refuses to boot, saying hardware changed (which is not true)13:40
daychilde(no longer goes to grub, which it used to)13:40
ikoniadaychilde: this sounds like a wubi install, that you've used boot repair on and it's screwed up your boot loader13:41
ikoniathat is a big guess though13:41
daychildemakes sense to me13:41
daychildehow is wubi install of ubuntu stored? how can I get to it? lol13:41
ikoniadaychilde: not really, it does a file system in a file thats on the ntfs windows drive,13:41
ikoniait's a pretty messy process13:42
ikoniathe boot loader setup is a real mess13:42
daychildeso basically I'm probably screwed already, from the sound of it?13:42
ikoniadaychilde: you may get back into it, but without being rude, I'm not going to put the time into walking through, wubi is a mess and it was dropped for a good reason13:42
daychildeno, understand completely and appreciate help and time13:43
daychildeam ex tech support, so completely understood13:43
daychildesounds like best bet is to do some googling - I have way more info than I had, so am very htankful - and either see if I can recover, or cut losses and blowhd away, which I can do myself. hehe.13:44

ivarsonIm trying to browse my windows share from Nautilus in 14.10, im authed but get mount error: invalid argument13:48
ivarsonI don't have to mess with smb.conf or mount.cifs to get nautils to work, do I?13:49
ikoniathey are server settings13:49
ikonianot client13:49
DrManhattanI used the additional drivers app to install the ATI proprietary driver. It works well but I need to enable vsync globally so I don't get tearing when playing flash video. How do I do this?13:53
ivarsonsorry, smb.conf might, I meant you could use mountutilities on the client to mount shares, but nautilus should be independent of such ?13:53
DrManhattanI am not seeing catalyst control center anywhere13:53
ikoniaivarson: smb.conf should not be used for the client13:54
ikoniaivarson: it is a server setting13:54
ivarsonikonia: yes you're right, but mount.cifs eg. you can mount remote share to local mountpoints.13:57
ikoniaivarson: that is a binary13:57
ikoniaivarson: you don't change a binary13:57
ivarsonif you're not into reverse engineering, no of course not :-)13:58
ikoniaI'm missing your point then13:58
ivarsonsorry for being unclear13:58
ivarsonIs the cifs/smb-functionality in Nautilus dependent on more "native" functionality in ubuntu. I always get error when trying to access shares so Im wondering if there's anything I can do to get nautlius working13:59
ikoniaivarson: it uses the libraries to allow smb over fuse support14:00
ikoniaivarson: if you're getting authentication failure, it's normally the windows machine refusing your auth, normally down to the username being wrong on connection14:00
ikoniaivarson: (some guess work there based on the more common problems people have)14:01
ivarsonikonia: thanks for your patience. The windows-box accepts my creds, I can see all share including hidden adminsitrative ones14:01
ikoniaivarson: how are you inputting your credentials ?14:01
ikoniaivarson: and where are you intputting them ?14:01
ivarsonthere's a credential-popup as soon as im trying to browse the "machine", since I use microsoft-account i use an email-adres for username, keeping Domain to the default WORKGROUP14:03
jattivarson: yes it is. you can access shares from the command line14:03
ikoniaivarson: try windowsmachinename\username@domain.com14:03
ikoniaivarson: it maybe trying to auth it somewhere other than the windows machine14:04
ikoniaeg: locally14:04
ivarsonikonia: But i do get authed? If i type creds in any other way i get instant refused? it seems like a mount-issue14:04
ikoniaivarson: you could always try to mount it manually and see what it does14:05
ivarsonshares such as C$ aren't event discoverable if you're anonymous/unauthed, aren't they?14:05
ikonia(outside of nautius)14:05
ikoniaivarson: depend, you're not on a windows machine, so how they get presented to a linux desktop is questionable14:05
ivarsonsure, i can mess with mount.cifs or smbclient or smb4k. I just now that this works in gnome3 in other distros and I'd like to avoid having to mess with fstab or commandlines for this particular action14:08
ikoniaivarson: testing it an verifying it with a manual mount is step one, once we know the situation, we can move forward with nautlius from there14:09
ivarsonYou're right. Just one more Q; Do you know if and where nautilus logs this kind of activites, or is it possible to activate it in gconf-editor or something?14:10
sempatnicktürkiye kanalı ne idi ?14:10
ikoniaivarson: it's going to be a fuse based mount, so I'm not sure where you'd see that, it's worth logging at the samba logs in /var/log too, as that used to log samba client connections, not sure if that would include fuse though14:11

Tobbe82I am working on setting up a personal webserver in a local box in my home using ubuntu server 14.04. On it I am trying to install Open Atrium 2. Now I have followed various tutorials online and managed to get drupal going but then somehow broke the ability to read & write via FTP. Now the server is of a "patch work" of so in regards to settings etc. And I realise that since I'm quite a beginner14:14
Tobbe82when it comes to ubuntu servers etc. I'd need some help.14:14
ikoniaTobbe82: I'd suggest re-installing ubuntu 14.04 - then asking people to guide you forward14:15
Tobbe82First question is if I should start from scratch by doing a clean install and then set it up via the help of you guys (since all the tutorials and guides i've tried online eventuelly leads into permission problems)14:15

raidentimed out14:16
Tobbe82yes ikonia this is sortof the same conclusion i've come to myself. I mean I understand all the different aspects of the installation etc. I just don't know if off hand and what is industry standard or some garage hacking so to speak14:16
ikoniaTobbe82: approach it in blocks, eg: install ubuntu, check, install apache and get a web page working, check, install drupal and it's dependencies, check14:16

copswinclausen: is it a RW disk.15:42
EriC^^Caleb--: you're not supposed to resize a mounted partition15:43
clausencopswin, The disk is a DVD+R.  Ultimately, I'd like to disable any kind of multisession on it (for security reasons)15:43
copswinThe OPS must be on vacation. A lot of vulgar language directed about me.15:43
Caleb--EriC^^, ext supports online resizing15:43
clausencopswin, but I can't get Windows to see it at all yet!  (it looks like a blank disk to windows)15:43
Caleb--EriC^^, in fact, it wanted me to mount the partition15:43
copswinclausen: a video or data disk15:44
clausencopswin, data15:45
EriC^^Caleb--: unmounted seems to be in italics15:45
copswinWho uses DVD any more. Usb.15:45

david543I need help. I just install 14.10 and i am having internet issues. My internet speed will gradually get slower over the course about 10 mins then disconnect. The only way for it to work again is to restart the machine. I am connecting view ethernet.15:48

clausendavid543, wireless?15:49

=== Guest84251 is now known as ckarlsen
clausendavid543, weird, it sounds like a driver problem (which wireless is more prone to)15:50
david543clausen: although I have wireless on the machine and it will do the same thing. I don't think its a driver issue. They are detected correctly.15:50
david543clausen: Both do the exact same thing.15:50
clausendavid543, does restarting networking, unloading/reloading drivers, etc. help?15:50
david543clausen: It won't be unable to reconnect to the network.15:51
clausendavid543, even before your 10min are up?15:51
david543clausen: Only restarting the machine. Not sure exactly. Its not exactly 10 mins it varies15:51
david543clausen: once I disconnect I can't reconnect15:51
david543clausen:I don't know if its relevant, I am also having issues with my bootloader/uefi15:52
clausendavid543, I would try to debug this by trying to find the simplest thing that would kill your internet15:52
clausenfor example, does shutting down the wireless also kill the wire connection?15:53
clausenwhat about the loopback device?15:53
clausenchanging routing rules?15:53
david543clausen: I have no idea how to do that.15:53
david543clausen: Um, like only once can connect at a time.15:53

clausendavid543, please skip that15:58
clausendavid543, (it's probably just reacting to us unceremoniously killing NetworkManager)15:59
clausendavid543, did it affect your network connectivity15:59
david543clausen: Sorry Not sure, yet, working on it. I am having Kernel Errors16:00
david543clausen: Kernel Oops, soft lockup cpu#3 Stuck for 22s (Xorg:1647)16:00
clausendavid543, it sounds like you have Bigger Problems than just networking16:01
clausendavid543, networking is probably just one of the symptoms16:01
clausendavid543, I would look in /var/log/syslog for error messages that might give a hint about the problem16:01
david543clausen: What should I do?16:01

kasad so guys, any tips on moving encrypted home dir to new partition16:07
clausendavid543, I'm sorry to hear that16:07
david543clausen: The entire computer just blacked screened16:07
clausendavid543, when you reboot, it should still have the syslog saved to disk16:08
david543clausen: wl 0000:05:05 PCI-DMA out of IOMMU space for 2048 bytes16:08
clausenkasad, I think you can just unmount the decrypted/plaintext directory, and copy the encrypted stuff across...16:09
david543eth0 failed to map tx DMA16:09
clausendavid543, can you put the whole thing on pastebin?16:09
david543clausen: Yes My computer just blacked screened saying that over and over again. Machine is rebooting16:09
clausendavid543, thanks.  hmmm, could be an io-mmu bug16:10
notfadssssssss can anyone help me with my fstab ? I need to fix it to read UUID's so I can boot >.>16:10
notfadssssssssfirst time dealing with this stuff so im a little lost16:10
kasadif I am correct, i think copying /home to new partition should leave me with unencrypted new /home16:11
kasadcan somebody confirm16:11
clausenkasad, well, it would copy both the encrypted and plaintext across...16:11
clausenkasad, (the encrypted data is stored in ~/.Private, IIRC)16:11
david543clausen: file size to large to put on pastebin16:12
clausendavid543, really?16:12
kasadclausen, but would it work normally after editing fstab and reboot?16:12
kasadclausen: check this out https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving16:12
kasadit says:16:12
clausenkasad, not sure, it might confuse it...16:12
clausen(I've never used it, I confess -- just read the doc's recently)16:13
kasadIf you have an encrypted home file system, then the above will just leave you with an unencrypted copy of your files, which is probably not what you want. You could re-encrypt them after copying, or copy them in their encrypted form. Here is one way to do that.16:13
david543clausen: 5 megs, and it started a new syslog. I am uploading to a file site16:13
kasad"above" being sudo rsync -aXS --exclude='/*/.gvfs' /home/. /media/home/.16:13
clausendavid543, maybe you can compress it with gzip?16:14
clausenkasad, right, that's why I suggest unmounting the decrypted part, and just copying the encrypted data16:15
david543clausen: Syslog's uploaded tinyupload Links are:16:15
david543clausen: http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=776851495586839295816:16
clausendavid543, "File ID is not correct. File doesn't exist"16:17
kasadclausen: did I mention that I don't really care if I lose encryption, in fact if I could just get rid of it I'd be happy16:17
david543clausen: http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=4104145611970932486416:18
clausenkasad, ah, in that case, you just need to exclude the ciphertext from the rsync command16:19
kasadclausen: so your idea is to copy everything that isn't encrypted, then unmount and then copy encrypted data from live usb (cd) just to make sure that is what youa re suggesting16:19
kasadso I am good with sudo rsync -aXS /home/. /media/home/.16:19

k3nz0Hello guys, I'm trying to install linux alongside with windows. I launched the install and when it comes to "Installation type" it tells me that "This computer currently has no detected operating systems". But I have windows 7 installed on the computer16:19
cfhowlettk3nz0, commonly happens with GPT16:20
EriC^^k3nz0: press something else, do you see your partitions?16:20
david543clausen: let me know if you get a chance to take a look.16:20
kasadk3nz0: you will have to manually edit partition schema most likely16:20

k3nz0sda2 is 500gb16:22
EriC^^ok that's probably your boot partition16:22
kasadsda1 is most likely windows boot partition16:22
EriC^^k3nz0: ok, is there unallocated space?16:22
clausendavid543, try booting with the kernel parameter: amd_iommu=off16:22
EriC^^k3nz0: you need to resize sda2 ( shrink it ) in windows16:22
cfhowlettk3nz0, make it easy on all of us.  sudo fdisk -l | pastebinit16:22
EriC^^k3nz0: boot into win7 > control panel > disks management16:23
clausendavid543, (you can edit the kernel command-line, once-off, in the Grub boot screen)16:23
kasadk3nz0: well, you should use gparted and prolly resize your c:\ partition (backup backup backup)16:23
cfhowlettk3nz0, for reference, I have win7 / ubuntu split equally on my 500 gb HDD.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/9635448/16:24

clausenoops, wrong way around16:24
Balzykasad you have the same issue? I need encryption, I have sensible data on my laptop16:25
clausendavid543, I think if you press shift, or escape, or something like that, you get access to the menu...16:25
david543clausen: is there a way to edit grub with in the booted terminal or gui?16:25
clausendavid543, yes, but it's a pain16:25
k3nz0Okay, I pastebin fdisk -l and I reboot on windows to shrink sda216:25
clausendavid543, and I need to get back to work in a minute...16:26
EriC^^k3nz0: we need the link16:26

cylebaileyis that to join a channel16:31

squeegilyIs there a way to hybrid suspend with this?17:58
k1lmickey_: the number means the row on which the grub menu is listed. if you want the windows entry (which is the os-prober) to be listed before the linux entries make it a number smaller than 10 but after 5 so its run after the grub theming but before the linux entries are listed17:58

Guest89058bekks, thats because i already installed from ubuntu doftware center19:39
Guest89058version 319:39
Guest89058but now i installed 3.2 with ppa19:40
bekksGuest89058: So uninstall both versions, and install your desired version again.19:40
Bashing-omnotfadssssssss: Question, is that 1st hard drive dis-connected, Why do we not see a 'sda' hard drive ?19:40
Guest89058bekks, i dont have good bandwidth19:41
ekoeightwhere is the live cd image for ubuntu?19:41
EriC^^notfadssssssss: btw did you check the options in the bios bootmgr ?19:41
Guest89058how can i uninstall 3.0 only?19:41
bekksGuest89058: Then it will take a while.19:41
notfadssssssssbashing-me: I couldnt imagine it not being?19:41
EriC^^you mentioned a boot manager menu, i forgot to ask19:41
jhutchinsGuest89058: It sounds like you upgraded the data files but not the game engine.  Sloppy packaging, this is why sticking with official repos is smart.19:41
ekoeightdo they not do live cds anymore?19:42
Guest89058jhutchins, i did it with the official flightgear ppa19:42
notfadsssssssseric^^:options for the EFI option? yeah I typed them all out, there were only two options that said anything to do with efi.... one was efi internal shell the other was the USB19:42
squintyekoeight: not cd (except for minimum install)  dvd size or usb19:42
Guest89058please tell me theres anotherway19:42
Bashing-omnotfadssssssss: EriC^^ :; seems real odd that a 'sda' is not assigned ,19:42
ekoeightsquinty: i have a machine that does not boot usbs or read dvds19:43
jhutchinsGuest89058: You can try updating the rest of the game packages from the ppa.19:43
Guest89058jhutchins, how do i do that?19:43
Guest89058wasnt update and upgrade enough_?19:44
Bashing-omekoeight: desktop editions no longer fit on a CD, one can build up from a server or minimal CD .19:44
Guest89058jhutchins, when itype upgrade it says: The following packages have been kept back:19:44
jhutchinsGuest89058: I would start by looking for instructions on the site you added the ppa from.19:44
Guest89058  fgrun flightgear19:44
Guest89058how do i make it update those packages too19:44
jhutchinsGuest89058: Specify them as what you want to upgrade.  I don't know how the ppa you've added ranks newer software, see their instructions.19:45
squintyekoeight:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/ISOBoot  (if you have grub already installed from a previous linux version) or see http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/ for making a boot cd so that usb's can boot from computers that don't have a "boot from usb" option19:45

AnnoyedI'm a bit confused about Ubuntu server 14.04, and and how  you are supposed to configure things.. For example, for ddclient.  Installed it using Software Update (I have a barebones Gnome installed for a GUI).. and /etc/ddclient.conf is almost empty.. and says something about Configuration file generated by debconf Am I supposed to edit ddclient.conf directly, or  use some other tool ?19:47
squintyekoeight:  yw19:47
AnnoyedAnd will changes get clobbered ?19:48

NurdTurdHi everyone :)20:01
NurdTurdWhats the issue?20:01
squintykyluc88:  might want to try using the boot option "nomodeset"20:02
squintykyluc88:  Start a reboot and hold down the Shift key. Press the e key on getting the GRUB bootloader. Using arrow keys navigate to and delete quiet and splash and type the word nomodeset in their place. Press Ctrl and X at the same time to continue booting20:02
squintykyluc88:  see if that gets you into your desktop20:03
kyluc88THX squinty - i will try it now20:03
squintykyluc88:  you can also access "recovery" while in the grub boot menu too.20:04
NurdTurdsorry about my attitude20:07

NurdTurdWon't happen again.20:07
kyluc88squinty: i have done all as told. i come to the loging GUI, no errors. I enter my pwd and than .. it is not stuck (mouse moves) but it stops there.  ?20:09
notfadsssssssseric^^: under boot options there is a EFI optimized boot it is disabled does this need to be enabled?20:09
squintykyluc88:  might want to check from the grub boot menu recovery option to see if you have an old /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rename it (or delete it if you want) and then try rebooting.  also might want to try accessing the Guest account from the lightdm logon screen to see if the problem is particular to your account or not20:13

k3nz0I think I've successfully installed linux in dual boot with Windows 7. When rebooting the grub doesn't launch, and it boots directly on Windows 720:20
EriC^^notfadssssssss: usually even if the bios is hardwired to that efi file you can still manually boot other files, you just have to press the boot options every time ( or do a workaround )20:21

kasadBashing-om: while I am sucking here and you are helping me not kill myself, do you maybe have idea how to migrate /home to new partition, with encrypt home directory enabled? (now I'm beeing greedy)20:31
Bashing-omkasad: Most likely the only problem. Reboot when chmods are done and see if it is effective .20:31
kasadBashing-om: rebooting now, think that's the prob all the way, uninstalled mesa for nothing20:32
Bashing-omkasad: Not a problem to ask, but encryption is something I shy away from . can not advise in such an instance .20:32

ardianHello, what do you suggest for drivers proprietary or open source ? (I am for open source software) but I'd like to have the best driver for my laptop, im using AMD/ATI graphic card20:33
notfadsssssssseric^^: kk20:34
entropiusIs there any way to see what is going on with the installer? I'm installing kubuntu 14.10 and it is taking an inordinately long time (on "preparing libreoffice-common"). This install has been obnoxious in other ways, despite being done on fast hardware. Is there some file I can tail to see what is going on?20:34
Bashing-omkasad: You have the right of that .. encryption is a level of complexity that is very difficult to overcome . In the event of problems . you do have a problem !20:34
EriC^^notfadssssssss: for i /dev /dev/pts /proc /run /sys; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done20:34
compdocardian, the open source should be installed already, if not activate it. See how well it runs20:35
compdocuse the proprietary if you need to20:36
bubbasauresentropius, If you ticked the update while installing it will take longer20:36

kasadBashing-om rypervenche: thing is, friend changed his mind, allowed me to virtualize his windows, so I got 100Gig partition freed up - and I wanted to mount it as /home, but alas, I chose encrypt home dir when I installed because I am idiot20:36

notfadsssssssseric^^: finished20:37
rypervenchekasad: I'm not sure where in Ubuntu it decrypts your home drive, but you can sync all of your data to your new drive, then change fstab and reboot, should work fine.20:37

kyluc88Hi all, working with 14.04 LTS. Recently had an interrupted update due to network issue. Now, when I enter my pw on GUI, ... the desktop workspace never appears. Comp does not freeze (mouse is moving), but .. login never completes. I see only login GUI (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)20:41
CrellHi folks. I am tracking an intermittent error with Ubuntu server 14.04.  The hardware is ostly 9 years old, and using a boot CD I've verified that the hardware is all fine AFAICT.20:42
CrellHowever, copying large amounts of data when booted to the installed 14.04 system reguarly causes fatal issues, eg, kernel panics.20:42
kasadBashing-om: it says VGA compatible controller, (mobility radeon xpress 200m) etc etc, but this machine won't be used for more then surfing, most intensive apps being run will be virtualbox of his previous winxp machine and his mother using FB/Youtube, so I think I am good with the driver20:42
CrellThe error message mentions a Bad RIP value, but Googling turns up that error on a dozen different things going back to at least 2006.20:43
CrellI was able to copy 200 GB over the netwrok without incident using a Boot CD, so I am assuming the hardware is all fine. It's some issue with the OS.20:43
kasadBashing-om: is there a way to migrate all the settings to different user or something, just to avoid that encryption, then I would delete this user, and mount 100GB partition as /home20:43
CrellHow do I even start tracking this down? :-/20:43
* Crell would prefer to not spend another week having a not-quite-working server.20:43
Bashing-omkasad: :) , I run ATI card, on radeon driver , no problems at all . workie great - last long time .20:43
squintyCrell:  ubuntu-server channel is there for a purpose  :P20:44
kasadBashing-om: I found different guides telling different things, so I am kinda afraid to try it, I spent way too much time configuring this20:44
Bashing-omkasad: No I can not say .. encryption, I do not know how to cope with it .20:44
Crellsquinty: I've had mixed results there, too.  I don't know that it's a server-specific issue; it seems kernel-related mostly?20:44
kasadBashing-om: thanks anyway. you already helped me tons and saved me lots of time20:45
daftykinsCrell: was it a clean 14.04.1 install, or a history of updates?20:45
basichashHow do i pipe errors to text file?20:45
EriC^^notfadssssssss: type efibootmgr -c -w -l \\EFI\\Microsoft\\bootmgfw.efi -L "Ubuntu" -p 1 -d /dev/sdc20:45
Crelldaftykins: Clean install via USB.  The install went fine.20:46
basichashi thought it was "command parm1 param2 2&>1 error.txt20:46
kasadBashing-om: now if i could only figure how to at least migrate all the settings, I set up like million things for his mom, and him, it would take me hours and hours to configure everything again :S20:46
basichashbut that doesn't seem to work20:46
EriC^^notfadssssssss: then efibootmgr -v and pastebin it please20:46

Crelldaftykins: The drives are all brand new.  And I was able to, from an older boot CD, copy 200 GB of data off of the RAID drives to a remote system without a single hiccup.20:50
notfadsssssssslol well change is good iguess20:50
daftykinsCrell: over what protocol? you've never encountered faulty new disks? hrmm :P20:50
notfadsssssssseric^^: efi shell booted20:50
EriC^^notfadssssssss: what happened?20:50
kyluc88Blueskaj_ : i did than via grub / root access with nw..20:50
EriC^^notfadssssssss: hmm20:51
Crelldaftykins: All copying was rsync over ssh.  And yes I've run into bad drives before, which is why I tried from the boot CD.  It seems unlikely that a hardware issue would manifest itself with only one OS doing the same thing, no?20:51
daftykinswhere does 'one OS' come into this?20:52
CrellThe installed 14.04 instance vs. the older boot CD.20:52
kyluc88Blueskaj_ : when ctl+alt+f1 i get <comp> login:  which does not respond .. i enter my username it comes back to <comp> login:20:52
CrellBoth pushed 200 GB-ish over the network using rsync/ssh.  Only one died every couple of gigs and needed a reboot.20:52
BluesKaj_kyluc88, doesn't ask for pw after login on VD?20:53
schoppenhauerI am trying to access a braille line, which always worked in earlier ubuntu versions. Now, when trying to access it, I get the error "usbfs: interface 1 claimed by usb-storage while 'brltty' sets config #1". I tried blacklisting and searched for udev options, but ... nothing seems to work like it did a few years ago, so I have no clue what to do.20:53
daftykinsCrell: so what was the boot disc?20:53
CrellThe kernel panic call tace appears to be doing some IRQ handling aroun SCSI.  (At least that's the keywords in the stack trace.)20:53
EriC^^notfadssssssss: sorry my bad20:54
kyluc88Blueskaj_: no, it returns to <comp> login:20:54
daftykinsCrell: i take it the OS is alongside the data on the RAID volume?20:54
EriC^^notfadssssssss: i just checked my efibootmgr -v , and my bootmgfw.efi is in EFI/Microsoft/Boot/20:54
EriC^^notfadssssssss: boot the live usb again, we'll try to put it there20:54
Crelldaftykins: Yes, it's a single partition on a 3-disk RAID 5 array.20:54
notfadsssssssseric^^: as long as you stop saying sorry for helping me out :P20:54
Crell(Software RAID, setup by the installer.)20:54
EriC^^notfadssssssss: ok :P20:55
daftykinsCrell: i'd bet that wouldn't be happening with the OS outside the volume20:55
CrellWhy would that matter?20:55
notfadsssssssseric^^: btw so now that I go to boot device menu there are not 2 ubuntus there20:56
notfadsssssssseric^^: Ubuntu and ubuntu20:56
EriC^^oh, i see20:57
notfadssssssssare now*20:57
notfadsssssssseric^^: still want me to boot from live CD?20:57
Crelldaftykins: Why would it matter if the OS itself is on a RAID partition?  (This is the first time I've tried setting up a RAID configuration.)20:58
BluesKaj_kyluc88, then use you live media/cd/dvd/usb and run kubuntu, open a terminal and do, sudo grub-install /dev/sdX , most likely /dev/sda20:58
Crelldaftykins: The boot CD was an older version of http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd, booted to the Linux/parted magic option.20:58
notfadsssssssseric^^: kk ready20:59
dvlThere is/was a script provided with Unbuntu's installation of Bacula (backup software) and I'm trying to locate that script in order to report a bug with it.  I figured the first step was locate the script... I'm failing.20:59
daftykinsCrell: so you don't have any prior experience with RAID but are asking me how it'd be affected? :)20:59
CrellIf I knew how it would be affected I wouldn't need to ask.  At least from the Ubuntu documentation it seemed like it should be a straightforward process.21:00
CrellGiven that it's a 20 year old technology I expected it to be fairly stable on a modern Linux version, especially when the installer directly supports it.21:01

entropiusis it unusual for the installer to take over an hour on a machine with a SSD and modern CPU?21:07
Crelldaftykins: You were making it sound like the proble is using RAID in the first place, which I would find highly surprising as it's hardly a new and untested technology.21:07

daftykinsCrell: no, i'm suggesting it's going funny with your setup.21:08
daftykinsCrell: but if these disks are brand new on an alleged "20 year old" system, you must be using some kind of HBA to connect them21:09

CrellNo, the hardware is Athlon 64, about 8-9 years old I believe.  The motherboard supports SATA, which all of the new drives are.21:09
Bashing-omsuper, 1st is to make sure the liveUSB is valid . Did you verify the .iso file with md5sum ? Can you boot to the liveUSB's boot options screen ?21:10
CrellHrm.  Not sure how modern a spare HDD I have lying around.  Could take a while to set that up. :-/21:10
EriC^^notfadssssssss: ok, sudo reboot21:10
kyluc88Blueskaj_: may i install boot repair in recovery session as root and run it then?21:12
daftykinsCrell: ok so half the age :D BIOS update wouldn't hurt too21:12
superfacepalmBashing-om: i did verify md5. when i select usb from boot list it just gives me boot from ubuntu, recovery or memtest screen. if i select ubuntu it trys and fails to boot from hdd. but it boots live cds just fine21:12
Delta706is there an easy way to get a font fullname?21:12
CrellHm. I'll have to see if there's a bios update available.21:12

kazbloxSimple question about specific software21:13
EsoRoticaI'm having troubles with a USB optical mouse disconnecting, Have tried several ports. Dont see what I need to in the logs. Mouse works in another computer.  Seems to be something to do with usb powersave and not sure how to debug21:13
johnb003anyone tried using an ubuntu box as an internet router?21:13
EsoRoticaAlso, this is a laptop.21:13
notfadsssssssseric^^: but I never had a U(capitcal) buntu before I guess we made one, my ubuntu was just written all lower cases could you have made a work around for the one we created?21:14
BluesKaj_kyluc88, best to install-boot repair on separate media since it's a small debian based OS21:14
johnb003I'm wondering 1) Can I use a single wired port for the wan and lan, and 2) will the server itself also be behind the firewall or only the clients?21:14
kazbloxIs there any software compatible with Ubuntu/Mint that allows me to fix "TFGHT is Missing" Windows 7 error?21:14
kazbloxI accidentally fucked up sda1 system partition21:14

basichashBashing-om: ah it works, thanks21:15
kazbloxSchrodingersScat: Oh, sorry. :P21:15
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: Sounds like bios is not finding the boot code on the USB and is going onto the next boot code it can find and tht is the hard drive ? .. Try and re-burn that .iso - as an image - to the usb once more ??21:15
EriC^^notfadssssssss: you have 3 ubuntu's right now, right?21:15
EriC^^Ubuntu Ubuntu and ubuntu ?21:15

notfadsssssssseric^^: let me check21:16
notfadsssssssseric^^: yes 321:18
=== ewdwed is now known as notprawn
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: In almost all cases, you want the liveUSB to be same same as the installed release . IF that install is 13.10 .. you do have a problem as 13.10 is End-Of-Life, and no longer has support .21:18
EriC^^notfadssssssss: try to boot the other Ubuntu21:18
marcelino671Hello, I'm new in Ubuntu, when I open more apps, my system overload, I use free -h to see the memory usage, 90% are in use, how I can see what apps are using much more memory?21:19

EriC^^notfadssssssss: ok, we can maybe try to manually boot the .efi file21:20
notfadsssssssseric^^: im game for anything.21:20
EriC^^notfadssssssss: in the efi shell, type map21:21
notfadsssssssseric^^: so boot the shell21:21

EriC^^mr-excellent: sudo do-release-upgrade21:21
Lando-SpacePimpThat is all21:21
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: Booting the liveUSB is operating system independent. If the boot code on the liveUSB is good, then bios will look no further if the USB is set as 1st boot priority .21:21
marcelino671Have a away to run tor without the use of firefox? Because I run the torbrowser, and then open Chrome with the proxy service in port 9150...21:21

entropiusThis install is taking forever. 1 GB/sec USB drive medium installing Kubuntu to a SSD on a machine with plenty of RAM/CPU/etc. It's taken over an hour to install packages. Any idea what's going on?21:23

wafflej0ckentropius, did you select to download packages during install? what's it say on screen currently?21:24

mr-excellentwhat do you think is the best version of ubuntu nice?????????????21:25

EriC^^notfadssssssss: ok, that's the live usb21:25
EriC^^notfadssssssss: holy..21:26
EriC^^notfadssssssss: could it be the efi partition doesnt have the ef00 type set?21:26
superfacepalmBashing-om: googling tells me to fix the missing kernel to use a livecd/usb and copy it over. i obviously messed up the first liveusb so tried the slightly different cd i had laying around. no luck with that so back to making a usb that actually works :)21:27
wafflej0ckmr-excellent, this room is for support if you want general chat go to #ubuntu-offtopic21:27
notfadsssssssseric^^: i have not the slightest idea.21:27
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: Make up a USB that works . do a full CHange Root into the install and from the CHRoot, apt-get install the kernel .21:28
EriC^^notfadssssssss: ok, we might as well try to see the other stuff that showed up in map21:28
EriC^^notfadssssssss: try hd48f0b:21:29
superfacepalmBashing-om: i usually use dd. is there another way i should be making the usb on debian?21:29
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: 'dd' is what I often see recommended, I do not use USBs myself so I am real short on direct advise .21:30
superfacepalmBashing-om: i prefer using cds/dvds. but my machine with the dvd burner is the one with no kernel... so yeah21:31
mladouxEriC^^, he's bios booting the main system, not efi, at least that's were left off. He had the thing where it was trying to boot off of sdb instead of sda after reboot going on.21:31
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: Will not matter to the operating system . You will boot the DVD and then boot into the operating system . IF ya got a DVD it will work fine to do what you need .21:32
EriC^^mladoux: nah, he's booting the right disk, but it looks like the efi shell can't get that the efi partition is there21:33
EriC^^mladoux: it's not showing up in map as a recognized file system21:33
schoppenhauer*push* I assume nobody here will know this because nobody here un21:34
schoppenhauerI am trying to access a braille line, which always worked in earlier ubuntu versions. Now, when trying to access it, I get the error "usbfs: interface 1 claimed by usb-storage while 'brltty' sets config #1". I tried blacklisting and searched for udev options, but ... nothing seems to work like it did a few years ago, so I have no clue what to do.21:34
mladouxEriC^^, that's because it's set up for bios boot, not efi on the server21:34
mladouxthere's no efi partition on the server.21:34
superfacepalmBashing-om: Bashing-om i have many dvds laying around, just not 14.04 gnome that's running on the kernel-less machine. so trying the usb21:35
marcelino671teward: Ty, I install tor, But when I try to run the command "tor" in terminal, I receive a error: apt-get install deb.torproject.org-keyring21:35
uchuonnaschoppenhauer; does swapping the usb ports they use make any difference?21:35
schoppenhaueruchuonna: no21:35
marcelino671teward: I have used tor browser, but I close before run the tor command in terminal21:35
tewardmarcelino671: that error you pasted is a command you should run, not an 'error', care to verify that's what you're seeing?21:36
uchuonnaschoppenhauer; is there some other usb drive which didn't used to be there?21:36
marcelino671teward: sorry, is this error: Could not bind to Address already in use. Is Tor already running?21:36
tewardmarcelino671: tor doesn't need manual starting - iirc it runs as a service automatically21:37
tewardmarcelino671: try `sudo service tor stop` and then `sudo service tor start`21:37
schoppenhaueruchuonna: it loads the internal sdcard, and the keyboard from there. I tried to blacklist usbhid and usb_storage, but they are reloaded again though.21:37

EsoRoticaI'm having troubles with a USB optical mouse disconnecting, Have tried several ports. Dont see what I need to in the logs. Mouse works in another computer.

wetwetwetWhen I connect to someone's pc using SSH and do some work using that computer's processing power, will I be using my HDD space or their HDD space?22:09
BluesKaj_wetwetwet,you are essentially running the remote pc from your KB so the remote pc HDD is the one that's being used22:10
superfacepalmBashing-om: i think that just caused it to install all kernels. its grabbing generic & low latency from 3.13.0-24 up22:10
Bashing-omEriC^^: notfadssssssss . In UEFI land booting, I am lost, as I do not know what files should be where .. I am still concerned, however, that 'sda' is not assigned . No isea as to how to check .. maybe read the kernel log and see what it says ?22:10
Bashing-omsuperfacepalm: How large is your /boot partition ? fingers crosssed .22:11
wetwetwetthanks BluesKaj_22:11
devnnHow much free space do I need to leave on a ext4 fs? Not many are discussing this, is it because there is no limit to how much you can fill the fs?22:12
notfadsssssssseric^^: ok so i got it open am i like... looking for loose wires at this point O.o22:13
EriC^^notfadssssssss: hmm, no it's fine22:13
EriC^^notfadssssssss: if it's easy to switch it and you've done it before go for it maybe22:13
notfadssssssssits half difficult to get to the HDDs but the raid controller I can change the connectors from the HDD to that easy22:14

CrellOK, the saga continues.  I am now trying to install 14.04 on a single hard drive, no RAID or anything.  The partitioning step in the installer however is failing with an error that /dev/sda1 "is apparently in use by the system", and so it won't create a partition there.23:07
