SteinerUI'm honestly not sure about the fat32 partition Eric^^00:00
EriC^^SteinerU: ok, type sudo parted -l00:00
woozyalright ill try now and let you know00:00
EriC^^paste it in paste.ubuntu.com00:00
not_a_tigerEriC^^: it says Swap: 0 0 000:01
SteinerUThis is what I got EriC^^: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9889481/00:01
gsilvaptDoes anyone knows if there is an open-source alternative to Adobe Freehand?00:01
EriC^^not_a_tiger: yeah no swap00:01
EriC^^not_a_tiger: did you run mkswap?00:02
not_a_tigerNope. I thought it might be enough to just create a new swap partition  :-/00:02
EriC^^not_a_tiger: type sudo mkswap /dev/sdxY00:03
EriC^^where xY is the disk and partition00:03
EriC^^SteinerU: ok just out of curiosity type sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt00:06
not_a_tigerEriC^^: sudo fdisk -l # /dev/sda5        58722304    67106815     4192256   82  Linux swap / Solaris00:06
EriC^^not_a_tiger: ok, sudo mkswap /dev/sda500:06
SteinerUOk EriC^^, done. Doesn't look like anything happened.00:07
EriC^^not_a_tiger: then sudo swapon /dev/sda500:07
EriC^^SteinerU: ok, type ls -l /mnt00:07
EriC^^what's in there?00:07
EriC^^EFI ?00:08
SteinerUEriC^^: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9889582/00:08
EriC^^ok type ls -l /mnt/EFI/ubuntu/00:08
EriC^^i think you installed ubuntu in uefi mode, using a msdos disk00:09
SteinerUAh. Well, when I go to the boot selector in my BIOS, it does list UEFI as one of the options00:09
EriC^^yeah you should select the usb in legacy mode00:10
EriC^^was windows booting?00:10
SteinerUHere's what I got in terminal: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9889617/00:10
SteinerUWell, I could launch from the live disc USB but when selecting the hard drive it just asked me to select a proper boot device00:10
EriC^^SteinerU: ok00:11
EriC^^SteinerU: i'm curious if it would boot with msdos00:12
EriC^^SteinerU: type sudo efibootmgr -v00:12
samthewildonecan someone lend me a hand @ this error > http://pastebin.com/rebVdU6U00:12
samthewildoneI tried fixing this problem by reinstalling the application, finally the os.00:13
SteinerUHuh. It says "command not found" EriC^^00:13
EriC^^try sudo apt-get install efibootmgr00:14
EriC^^not_a_tiger: did you run swapon ?00:14
samthewildoneThe problem persist no matter what I attempt at getting it fixed.00:14
EriC^^not_a_tiger: you still have to add it to fstab00:14
samthewildoneThe error is also the same on ubuntu desktop && gnome ubuntu00:15
samthewildoneI tried searching for a solution in goolge but, haven't found any information.00:15
SteinerUOky EriC^^. The result I got was "Fatal: Couldn't open either sysfs or procfs directories for accessing EFI variables.' Try 'modprobe efivars' as root."00:15
samthewildoneI tried reinstall & just did a "apt-get install libgstream*" and still nothing.00:16
samthewildoneI even removed the program and reinstalled it again, again and again.00:16
samthewildoneDo I have to install libgstreamer source and build it from there ?00:16
EriC^^SteinerU: try sudo modprobe efivars00:16
EriC^^SteinerU: i think the usb's booted in legacy mode right now00:17
SteinerUI typed it and nothing happened00:17
EriC^^ok try sudo efibootmgr -v00:17
samthewildoneanyone ?00:18
SteinerUHmmm. Same fatal error as before00:18
EriC^^SteinerU: ok, we can reinstall grub to the mbr so it works with legacy mode00:19
ewelinaSteinerU: Turn off EFI in bios and problem is solved :>00:19
EriC^^SteinerU: or you can see what happens if you choose uefi mode in the bios and see if it picks up the efi partition00:20
not_a_tigerEriC^^: Swap:         4093          0       409300:20
EriC^^SteinerU: if you have time, give the uefi in bios a shot00:20
EriC^^i'm kind of curious if it would even work00:21
SteinerUAll right, well, I'll do that. How do I get back to this channel, in case it doesn't?00:21
not_a_tigerEriC^^: Thanks for the help00:21
EriC^^not_a_tiger: type sudo nano /etc/fstab , type sudo blkid in another terminal00:21
EriC^^not_a_tiger: you need to add it to fstab so it's persistent00:21
EriC^^SteinerU: boot the live usb00:22
EriC^^hold on00:22
EriC^^let's write to the mbr00:22
EriC^^type sudo umount /mnt00:23
EriC^^SteinerU: type sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt00:24
SteinerUAlright, done. What exactly did that do?00:24
EriC^^SteinerU: for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /run /sys; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done00:24
EriC^^SteinerU: mounted the installation under /mnt00:24
not_a_tigerEriC^^: There is already an entry for swap in /etc/fstab00:24
EriC^^not_a_tiger: it's the old one00:25
EriC^^replace the uuid with the new uuid from sudo blkid00:25
not_a_tigerDifferent uuid ?00:25
SteinerUOdd. EriC^^, it just spits out "mount: not a directory"00:26
imastupidguestDoes anyone know of a linux command that, given a file name, will report the number of lines in the file? Like they way 'file' can tell you the file type?00:26
not_a_tigerEriC^^: /etc/fstab # UUID=0f54c166-4f25-45d3-84ad-2f8c1ddb273f none            swap    sw              0       000:27
n88alright getting ready to pull my hair out on this one... i've been trying to get my external USB netgear WNDA3100v2 to play nicely and it doesn't seem to want to work... I followed a thread that seemed to be the solution but now the only wireless network it will connect to is the guest network and it fails to connect to any networks that require authentication (WPA)... i've installed ndiswrapper and got the broadcom 64 bit .inf file installed with ndiswrapper -00:27
EriC^^imastupidguest: wc -l00:27
ewelinaimastupidguest: wc -l or type00:27
n88here is some of the output that might be important: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9885727/00:27
EriC^^SteinerU: what's the exact command you typed?00:27
SteinerUEriC^^: sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i00:28
imastupidguestEriC^^: ewelina: Sweet! thx00:28
SteinerUI got confused by the first portion of the last line you sent to me00:28
ewelinan88: you need to install wpa_supplicant00:28
EriC^^SteinerU: you have to type the whole thing out00:28
EriC^^for i .... done00:28
n88ewelina: ok thanks... i'll look into that00:28
n88ewelina: it is already installed...00:29
ewelinan88 try connect from command line00:29
not_a_tigereric is changing the uuid in fstab the last step?00:30
EriC^^not_a_tiger: the line looks fine00:30
not_a_tigerEriC^^: Thanks. I won't be able to reboot for some time, but this is enough help to take care of me for now. Thank you.00:30
imastupidguestI'm not very good w/ shell scripting or whatever. Is there a way I can run wc -l recursively on the contents of my working dir? Is anyone willing to help w/ a command for it?00:30
EriC^^not_a_tiger: no problem00:30
SteinerUEriC^^: I literally typed "for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /run /sys; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i", then got a ">" prompt and typed "done"00:31
SteinerUIs that right?00:31
EriC^^imastupidguest: find . -exec wc -l '{}' \;00:31
EriC^^SteinerU: type the whole thing, with ; done00:32
imastupidguestEriC^^: Sweet! Thx man.00:32
n88ewelina: ... that actually worked00:33
SteinerUThere we go00:33
SteinerUWell, nothing seems to have happened in the terminal EriC^^, but I assume typing that changed something00:33
n88ewelina: how come it won't work from the GUI panel00:33
SteinerUNow what?00:33
EriC^^SteinerU: ok, type sudo chroot /mnt00:33
n88ewelina: or better question...how do I get it to work from the network manager00:33
EriC^^then apt-get install grub-pc00:34
df_i had a question about ubuntu00:35
NegativeFlaredf_: Ask away :P00:35
ewelinan88: try remove profile, NM and add again00:36
ewelinan88 it's should be works and be available from NM00:37
SteinerUIt's listing three GRUB install devices EriC^^, "/dev/sda (500107 MB; ST3500g30AS", "/dev/sda3 (298499 MB; /) and "/dev/sda (15518 MB; 6387"00:37
SteinerUWhich do I selecft?00:37
docmurI have an LVM volume that say that it needs to be checked.  I used tune2fs to set it for check at the next reboot, but twice in a row, it's failed to check the disk, how do I get this disk checked00:37
EriC^^the /dev/sda 50000MB00:38
EriC^^SteinerU: ^00:38
SteinerUEr, it's telling me I chose not to install grub to any devices00:39
SteinerUEriC^^: ^00:39
EriC^^SteinerU: try again00:40
n88ewelina: thanks it actually works now... good thing I spent a few hours trying to fix it when all i needed to do was delete the profile and try again :)00:40
EriC^^and paste what it's saying in paste.ubuntu.com00:40
EriC^^SteinerU: did the package install successfully?00:41
ewelinan88: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn2FB1P_Mn8  something like that :)00:41
SteinerUWell it's weird, because I get to the screen with those three options00:42
EriC^^SteinerU: choose to install to /dev/sda00:42
SteinerUI did00:42
SteinerUBut it's telling me I chose not to install GRUB to anything00:42
SteinerULike, it lets me select one of the devices. Hitting Shift or choosing sda with Enter gives me the same result00:43
EriC^^SteinerU: try the right arrow00:43
EriC^^or space00:43
bruxCtrying to add bash commands but seem to be doing something wrong. was hoping someone could pick at my attempt?00:44
SteinerUThere we go. I feel like an idiot, EriC^^ lol00:44
EriC^^ok, great00:45
bruxCi've navigated to /home/user/.bash_aliases but it's empty; I added my bash commands and rebooted the server, doesn't seem to take. Is this the wrong dir?00:45
SteinerUIf I restart the PC I should see the GRUB loader like before, right EriC^^?00:46

EriC^^and windows too00:46
SteinerUYep EriC^^00:47
ewelinabruxC Restarting server for reload .bash_aliases? So you can log out and log in again...00:47
bruxCewelina, i don't follow I'm sorry. what's your question?00:47
ewelinabruxC So .bash_aliases is loaded from .bashrc so you can add your aliases into this file00:48
EriC^^bruxC: it should work, .bashrc uses them00:48
bruxCso the directory I went into is the incorrect one?00:48
EriC^^bruxC: type alias00:48
ewelinabruxC: or for global /etc/profile00:48
EriC^^bruxC: no .bash_aliases is fine00:49
EriC^^SteinerU: ok, cool00:49
bruxCEriC^^, the aliases I added aren't in this list when I typed 'aliases'00:49
EriC^^SteinerU: type exit00:49
SteinerUSafe to reboot?00:49
EriC^^SteinerU: then try to restart if it doesn't work out use the live usb to get back on here00:49
lurk_sudo is my account password how do i find my su (root) password?00:49
EriC^^bruxC: you mean alias00:50
lathiatlurk_: Ubuntu does not have one by default00:50
bruxCYes, sorry.00:50
lathiatlurk_: generally you just use sudo00:50
SteinerUOK EriC^^. Hopefully it'll all go well.00:50
ewelinalurk_ you need change password first default is empty type sudo passwd00:50

EriC^^bruxC: how are you adding the aliases?00:51
EriC^^bruxC: alias bla='bla bla bla' ?00:52
bruxChow i did it was nano /home/user/.bash_aliases then as an example: alias transstop='sudo service transmission-daemon stop'00:52
bruxCI think my destination is wrong.00:52

mynameisdeletedI see command-line tools for authoring unencrypted blu-ray... but was hoping for somethign like k3b01:04
bruxCI'm getting a tad confused and overwhelmed so i apologize.01:04
EriC^^yes, put them in ~/.bash_aliases as you did, just no need for sudo01:05
bruxCnano ~/.bash_aliases01:05
EriC^^bruxC: no worries01:05
EriC^^bruxC: yeah01:05
bruxCis it normal that there isn't anything in this file?01:05
bruxCCan you explain what happened and what we did?01:05
bruxCI'd like to try and at least understand what we went through. Perhaps my subconscious can cling on to it and use it as a learning experience.01:06
EriC^^bruxC: as the grep command shows, .bashrc checks if that file exists and uses it to add aliases you've set01:06
bruxCbeyond me adding the aliases, is there anything else I need to do command wise?01:07
EriC^^grep bash_aliases ~/.bashrc will show you the part the looks for it and adds it01:07
woozyEriC^^: http://imgur.com/zGJJKir01:07

woozyThat's how I have it set up and I got an error on reboot after install01:08
bruxCI mean as a requirement.01:08
bruxCif I add an alias, do I need to stop a service and restart it, reboot the server; that sort of thing?01:08
EriC^^woozy: what was the error?01:09
EriC^^woozy: it looks good01:09
ewelinabruxC: no this aliases is loaded when you login01:09

woozyThe partitions I have set up are 2 ext4s one is / @ 50gb and the other is /home @ 570ish gb04:16

reisio'specially if your processor is not particularly old, and can absorb the overhead04:24

RahulANi upgraded my system from 12.04 to 14.0405:21
NegativeFlarek1l_: Alright man, thanks. I was under the impression that Utopic was using it.05:21
RahulANnow as i restart it no screen appears only a screen with ubuntu comes05:22
RahulANi did alt + cntl + F105:22
cromagiThird party sources disabled05:22
cromagiSome third party entries in your sources.list were disabled. You can re-enable them after the upgrade with the 'software-properties' tool or your package manager.05:22
cromagiwhen i try to upgrade i get that ^^05:22
lotuspsychjeRahulAN: did you try grub recoverymode?05:22
k1l_cromagi: that is all fine05:22
RahulANlotuspsychje, yes i tried05:23
k1l_cromagi: enable them afterwards again05:23
cromagihow tho05:23
lotuspsychjeRahulAN: no luck to boot?05:23
RahulANand also my networl manager stopped05:23
k1l_cromagi: see system settings, updates and software05:23
lotuspsychjeRahulAN: maybe try 'fix broken packages' option from recoverymode05:23
RahulANlotuspsychje, i am getting terminal after alt + cntl + F105:23
cromagiwhat changes to we expect to see in ubuntu 15.04?05:24
RahulANlotuspsychje, ok05:24
lotuspsychjecromagi: join #ubuntu+1 for that05:24
reisiocromagi: more recent Debian unstable snapshots of software, mostly, I'd wager05:25

MarkusDB1If you really know your bash, is the command line a more efficient way for file operations?05:29
ChronicChopsHas anyone here considered defecting to ArchLinux? If so, why didn't you? I am considering it.05:29
reisioMarkusDB1: yup05:29
reisioMarkusDB1: also if you only barely know it05:29
reisiolooking up how to do something in bash even if you know not at all how to do it already can easily save you several thousand million hours of time05:30
Xenos1i don't know if this is really related but i'm using an ssh to log into a school computer what are they using exactly05:31
ChronicChopsMarkusDB1: I can second that, just this xmas I got a book on the linux command line, and it has already made me more efficient than any GUI couuld05:31
Xenos1because the locate command doesn't work05:31
reisioXenos1: uname -a05:31
reisioXenos1: which find05:32
Xenos1reisio, ?05:32
reisioXenos1: commands05:32
Xenos1locate <filename>05:32
reisioXenos1: find / -type f -iname '*file*name*'05:32
MarkusDB1reisio: thanks guys, I'm trying to convince more mac guys to learn the command line and need arguments =)05:33
reisiothe 'locate' database is usually generated from 'find' anyways05:33
reisioit's just a database, that is generated beforehand (if it was, anyways), making it faster for enduring files (and useless/misleading/annoying for dynamic ones)05:33
reisioMarkusDB1: free cardigans05:33
Xenos1reisio, thanks05:33
zerowaitstateXenos1: there is a command called updatedb that has to be run to generate the locate database. It is usually set to run daily in cron, but you may have to initialize it using updatedb if you want to use locate right after installing it05:34

ash547Hi ..I have wordpress website and all the files are owned by www-data user. If upload file from a user in /var/www/html/site1 the file ownership is owned by that user not from www-data05:35
zerowaitstateMarkusDB1: there are subtle differences between the Mac and Linux versions of bash, FYI05:36
ash547can sone help me ??05:36
reisioash547: chown www-data path/to/file05:36
lotuspsychjeash547: maybe the #wordpress guys can also guide you05:36
zerowaitstateMarkusDB1: for example, it the latest release of OSX, the alias commands behave differently05:36
Xenos1reisio, how would I use that to find a directory05:36
MarkusDB1zerowaitstate: yeah I've noticed that. Also the macs lack of a package manager is very bad. Homebrew is there, but always seem to play catch up with apple breaking stuff in each relase of mac os x.05:36
somsipash547: chmod g+s -R /var/www/wordpress/wp-content/uploads05:37
somsipash547: then anything created or copied to that dir or sub-dirs will have www-data as the group owner, so it will be readable by wordpress05:37
zerowaitstateXenos1: use -type d05:38
ChronicChopsHas anyone here considered defecting to ArchLinux? If so, why didn't you? I am considering it.05:39

elmalafachathats the one?06:13
somsipelmalafacha: so 1GB, use 32 bit06:13
elmalafachathanks a lot06:14
icerootelmalafacha: always install the amd64 version if your cpu supports 64bit, there is no reason to install the 32bit version if your hardware supports 64bit06:14
somsipiceroot: you'd still recommend 64bit with only 1GB RAM?06:14
icerootsomsip: of course06:14
elmalafachabut in installed already and is toooooo slow06:15
icerootsomsip: what if he upgrades the ram to more? why not using amd64 if the cpu supports it?06:15
icerootelmalafacha: amd64 is not the reason why it is slow06:15
elmalafachamm ok, so what can i do?06:15
somsipiceroot: fair enough, but I ahve always recommended 32bit for <2GB RAM and advised to use caution for <4GB. Maybe I should read more06:16
icerootelmalafacha: i guess you are using normal ubuntu (with unity), there 1GB ram is not that much, that may be a reason why it is slow06:16
icerootsomsip: https://cl4ssic4l.wordpress.com/2011/05/24/linus-torvalds-about-pae/   everything with 1gb and more will have a benefit of amd6406:16
jamesd_somsip: you do relize that 32 bit runs out of address space in as little as 2GB (signed 32bit number)06:16
elmalafachaI installed gnome-ubuntu06:17
somsipiceroot: this is not pae though, eg: http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-decide-if-you-should-use-32bit-or-64bit-ubuntu "64 bit - Decreased performance on low-RAM machines."06:17
icerootsomsip: read the part of the article about the virtual address space06:17
icerootsomsip: not related to pae06:17
somsipjamesd_: yes, it's not RAM access that is the issue here, it's whether 64bit runs slower with low RAM machines, which is what I've always understoof06:17
icerootsomsip: why should amd64 be slower?06:18
somsipiceroot: fair enough - I have learnt06:18
somsipiceroot: no idea - jsut soemthing I've tended to see in advice on here and have read in more than one place. But happy to take Linus's word on the matter :)06:18
icerootsomsip: and have in mind, if you have 1gb ram and a vga with 1gb and you are also swapping with 2 gb, you have 4GB, everything handled from the address space06:18

=== hodlr is now known as kodumulo
jamesd_somsip: it might of been true in the early days of 64bit... on really small machines, the binaries were 1-2% bigger and when you had a 1GB harddrive was considered big it made a difference, these days, hard drives are huge in comparison and 64bit cpus are more efficeint and faster.06:23
somsipjamesd_: still, I was coming at it from a point of view of low RAM, not low HD. Just reaidng through sources of info now. EOT for me :)06:24
icerootsomsip: the issues in the past where mainly with closed source stuff which was only build for 32bit (flash for example) it was difficult to get it working in a 64bit driver. the same for drivers which are nit available in 64bit because of the closed source it was not possible to build them for 64bit but these times are over06:24
elmalafachaok, ill check it out, thaks a lot to every one06:24
icerootsomsip: but flash is of course always an issue and should be avoided if possible :) (but not for the amd64 reason)06:25
somsipiceroot: ok, back off EOT for me. It's this sort of thing that was informing me. This is not old and is well upvoted http://askubuntu.com/questions/7034/what-are-the-differences-between-32-bit-and-64-bit-and-which-should-i-choose06:25

mcphailazi`: are you compiling fresh on each machine or compiling on one and copying the binary to the other?11:49
azi`mcphail: fresh11:49
azi`mcphail: and it works well on all machines, except when i do -O2 it breaks on the latest GSL version11:49
mcphailazi`: very odd, then. One for gdb's superpowers, I suspect11:49
azi`mcphail: yes gdb actually tells it breaks in a GSL function, now I am figuring out how to get a gsl lib with debug support11:50
mcphailazi`: there are debug libs in the repos11:50

azi`mcphail: should it be enough if I simply install this?11:52
mcphailazi`: as long as you're using the version of the library in the repository and haven't hand-rolled your own11:53
bazhangstevenm, yes, screencasts as well11:53
azi`mcphail: no though I am wondering how to force compilation on a locally built lib (just to see if the latest official release by GSL causes trouble as well)11:53
stevenmbazhang, doesn't seem to work right in my test VM - when picking to screenshot a window or area the whole screen goes grey ... doesn't seem to have a lot of functionality either - will it let you preview what you took a screenshot of?  will it let you draw on it after?11:55
mcphailazi`: now _that's_ a bit trickier. I resort to Google any time I have to do that sort of thing. The method never sticks in my brain11:56
stevenmbazhang, nvm doesn't seem to do any of that11:56
bazhangstevenm, how much ram did you give that vm11:56
stevenmlooks like It'll have to be shutter11:56
stevenmbazhang, a gig11:56
azi`mcphail: i think i got it.. the problem now is, where to report this thing to? at this point I am not even sure wheter its caused by a bug in my code or not11:57
mcphailazi`: If it is a bug in upstream, report it upstream. If upstream is fixed, ask the Ubuhntu maintainer to bugfix (but that probably won't come on line until the next Ubuntu release)11:59
=== Guest65322 is now known as mars31
mcphailazi`: even posting a backtrace to upstream will probably help to narrow things down11:59
mcphailazi`: of course, it might all boil down to a bug in GCC but compiling with "-O2" isn't supposed to break anything. "-O3" is supposed to be the dangerous one12:01

Ben64waaataaw: yes odd13:34
Ben64waaataaw: on that list, the 8th column is the size in bytes13:35
waaataawwhat i was doing is using the node.js to sha1 on results in database queries    var folderSha1 = shasum.digest('hex');13:35
waaataawwe would have run 500,000 postgresql queries and then sha1'd them all13:35

waaataawis it the output in the terminal window prehaps?13:39
waaataawlike 10 million line prints?13:39
Ben64output doesn't matter13:39
Ben64it'd be something running13:39
waaataawi've got scrollback set to unlimited13:39
waaataawit would have been millions and millions of lines of output13:39
Ben64yeah that shouldn't affect /tmp at least13:40
waaataaweven for 1 - 10m lines?13:40
waaataawi mean i wasn't opening files..13:40
waaataawliterally it was sql query for 100 results, sha1 those results, do an insert... repeat a million times13:40
Ben64waaataaw: i guess its possible13:41
waaataawi've limited to 10k now :)13:41
waaataawat least i can clear it out13:41

CHVNXloa: That depends on what you;re rtying to recover.16:27
loafor example i have home directory and want reinstall system by save home data.16:27
tonyc___why would an MP4 play after reboot and then stop playing 10 minutes later?16:27
daftykinsloa: yeah, boot live session - mount /home, copy off to another device. simple16:28
loadaftykins, but is it possible without copy?16:28
k1lgfhfgh: please show a fact for ubuntu packages vulnerable.16:28
daftykinsloa: depends if you created a separate partition for /home16:28
loadaftykins, separated as i remeber16:28
daftykinsloa: well boot a live session and check :)16:29
Picigfhfgh: 1.0.1l only included Windows and VMS fixes, it doesn't matter that it came out on the 15th or not, there are no Linux fixes in there.16:29
loadaftykins, what if it is ok?16:29
loadaftykins, there will be option during installation?16:29
jellygfhfgh: well known OS, hw and sw vendors have access to bugs days-weeks before the public release, so they can coordinate fixes and release them at the same time.  This is standard procedure.16:29
daftykinsloa: yes, it's called "something else" on the partitioner window. you will have to partition manually16:29
daftykinsloa: but you should still backup to an external device before reinstalling, it's only sensible. if you don't, then it's your own fault what happens :)16:30

tewardis it possible to have java 7 (Oracle) and java 8 (OpenJDK) running on the same computer?17:50
handytonkhetii: maybe in network settings you need to add blueman as a connection17:50

cjzk1l:  ok17:50
daftykinskokut: try 'top' in a terminal17:50
BluesKaj_paulltk, use a live media version of gparted either on cd or usb17:51
paulltkBlueasKaj_, the problem is that it doesn't even show unallocated space. Instead of showing partitions, i just see blank space17:51

daftykinsactually most Linux wireless drivers are so bad that they won't even operate at 'n'18:03

grepperis it possible to use the mini.iso to install when you are at a location that requires a router password ?19:41
ArshiaAghaeiWell , looks like no one can help me here , is it ????19:41
daftykinsgrepper: you mean like a web proxy?19:42
daftykinsArshiaAghaei: blame your government for that19:42
grepperdaftykins: well, I want to help a friend install on an old laptop that has only a cd drive, and we will be doing it a a pub with public wifi19:42
grepperthat requires I enter a password for access19:43
ChristWWhen I switch to another user that has ‘zoom in’ enabled (desktop magnification), why do I get 2 mouse pointers? They both move when I move the mouse.19:43
daftykinsgrepper: oh i see, so a hotspot yeah. if you set the MAC address of a working laptop to be it, then agree to the hotspot page, then install it should run - but good luck getting on wifi from mini installs :) alternatively, you should run mini.iso on it whilst wired into a second laptop which is sharing the wifi19:44

ArshiaAghaeiHey! This is no my fault. And : We cannot talk about the policy in the IRC , because we cannot change it.19:44
jhutchins_wkArshiaAghaei: It would be better to get information from other people who are in your country and who know what works and what is and isn't safe.19:44

epsonablest1980:  thanks!19:45
ArshiaAghaeijhutchins_wk: All Right , Do you know where should i go ???19:45
daftykinsgrepper: you'd still have this problem of getting it onto wireless which would be painful. does it not boot from USB flash drive?19:46
grepperdaftykins: less complicated, is there anything in between the dvd and the mini.iso? like a 700 mb image19:46
daftykinsgrepper: oh actually hang on, there's a CD you can burn that's a chainloader that will boot flash drives on systems that don't support them - i can't remember the name though19:46
daftykinsgrepper: nope. all too big now19:46
grepperdoubtful about the usb, though it may be possible19:46
grepperhm, I may just take it home with me if he lets me and do it on my network19:47
daftykinsgrepper: i think this is it - http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/19:47

votlonanyone know why in ubuntu 14.04 server my netowrk adapaters come up as em1, p5p1 and p6p1 instead of eth0 eth1 and eth2?20:06
osguyquestion I am curious when grub boots the kernel how does the kernel know where the file system is and root directory not even sure how linux knows the file system structure and the drive it needs to uses for it?20:07
MotherMGAHello, I can't get my motorola bluetooth headphones to pair with ubuntu 14.10. The OS never sees it. Does anyone here have an idea on how I can get ubuntu to see my headphones? This worked in 14.04.20:07
osguyit i does the kernel know where to go for /sbin/init20:08
Bashing-omosguy: Verry simply put , very rudimentary . grub passes that info onto the kernel .20:09
votlonMotherMGA: is ur 14.10 a fresh install?20:09
MotherMGAvotlon: yes20:09
osguyso grub is the one that figures out the file system or network file systems and then loads the kernel and tells the kernel where  / is and what file system driver it needs20:10
votlonMotherMGA: did u install any additional bluetooth drivers?20:10
MotherMGAvotlon: no, I did not20:10
votlonMotherMGA: check your additional drivers in system settings20:10
osguyso that the kernel can find /sbin/init to start the services20:10
osguyis that correct20:11
Bashing-omosguy: Yepper : see : https://iam.tj/kb/pc/boot/#a_bootloader .20:11
MotherMGAvolton: it only recommends graphics drivers. is there a way to search for bluetooth drivers?20:11
osguyso you can tell grub to load / from the network and uses a local HDD linux kernel20:11
osguyor basically tell grub the location of the kernel and the root directories / folders for it20:12
MotherMGAvotlon: it only recommends graphics drivers. is there a way to search for bluetooth drivers?20:13
sacarlsonMotherMGA: as far as I know the bluetooth drivers would be a part of the kernel groups stuf20:13
osguyis it possible to put all folders on seperate network computers i.e /bin /sbin /var ,...etc and only have /boot folder with the linux kernel on the local machine20:14
Bashing-omosguy: Again, yes . Grub us very veratile .. you can tell it what/where and if it is acceptd, will pass it onto the kernel . ( grub will check/verify) .20:15
daftykinsosguy: why would you want to make it so slow and dependant to use?20:15
sacarlsonosguy: I'm not sure, I've never seen anything setup that way,  but I guess you can put bin anyplace and still run them20:15
osguybecause i know you can do PXE booting with grub and have the whole iso on a different system or whole kernel and filesystem on a seperate system20:15

alias_neoHey all. Is tere a way to check what kernel modules I need to recompile after I build and install a new kernel from source?22:29
Ben64alias_neo: thats up to you22:29
mcphailalias_neo: just pick what you need or steal and adapt the ubuntu defaults22:29
alias_neoit was my understanding that my modules won't work anymore after I do update? So how do I know wht modules are no longer working?22:30
mcphailalias_neo: you can find the current kernel config under /boot. Copy it to the kernel source directory as ".config" and type "make olddefconfig" to update the config to the new requirements22:30
alias_neoSpecifically I mean things built as part of third party tools22:31
alias_neofor example (please correct if I misunderstand) I updated the kernel on a box running kvm/libvirt/qemu, after which I had to dpkg-reconfigure before it would work again22:32
kiahello :D22:33
Ben64alias_neo: then look for anything using dkms22:33
alias_neoHi kia22:33
alias_neoBen64: What do mean by "look"?22:33
MonkeyDustalias_neo  if you don't get an answer here, there's also #ubuntu-kernel22:33
alias_neoMonkeyDust: Thanks22:33

alias_neoBen64 great, thank you22:34
Ben64LurkAshFlake: vino?22:35
mcphailalias_neo: no idea why you had to dpkg-reconfigure for libvirt/kvm. I've never had to do that. Virtualbox or vmware is likely to be more difficult, though.22:36
=== swordsmanz is now known as hugbot
alias_neomcphail Not sure, ubuntu held back the kernel and headers so I aptitude safe-upgrade installed it, then I had to reconfigure before it would run22:37
mcphailalias_neo: aptitude hasn't been supported in Ubuntu for a while. You might have been better with plain old apt-get.22:38
Bashing-omLurkAshFlake: Sharing files between 2 'buntus ?22:39
LurkAshFlakehe installed it a second time but it boot automatically on windows 8 without asking22:40
alias_neomcphail i tried apt-get but it refused to let me update becuase it's held back, so the instructions i found suggested an aptitude safe-upgrade or something to that effect)22:40
Jordan_Umcphail: aptitude is in main, what makes you think that it's not supported in Ubuntu?22:41
mcphailalias_neo: if it is held back you need to apt-get dist-upgrade22:41
mcphailJordan_U: it hasn't been recommended since multiarch, as far as I am aware22:41
alias_neomcphail I'm sure I tried that also but again it wouldn't allow me22:41

=== enchilad1 is now known as enchilado
EriC^^edrahn: sudo apt-get install <package>=<version>22:43

edrahnEriC^^: it says it can't find it22:43
EriC^^edrahn: it's probably in older ubuntu version's repositories22:44
mcphailalias_neo: the easiest thing is to install and see. GRUB will always let you boot an older kernel if it doesn;t work22:44
alias_neomcphail interesting, I have no idea why it behaved that way then22:44

acovrigI'm trying to install ubuntu server on an old Dell PowerEdge 1650, the installer (Command line or expert command line) hangs at the partitioner, any ideas why?22:48
alias_neoone more question22:48
alias_neocan I assume that the default kernel config it suitable for most situations or is there somewhere i should get custom configs from?22:49
reisioalias_neo: it's best to wait for a problem to manifest before you try to fix a problem, yes22:49
reisiothat applies outside of the realm of computers as well22:49
alias_neoreisio sure, but I'm an engineer, i prefer to prevent, then wait for them to arise22:50
mcphailalias_neo: only problem with default kernel config from Ubuntu is debugging options are turned on. Switching them off will reduce build time22:50
MonkeyDustalias_neo  don't use the kernel in prodection envoironment, at first... break it, then fix it22:51
alias_neoMonkeyDust, how will I know if it's not working right if it isn't crashing/panicking etc?22:51
EriC^^alias_neo: there's no safety factors with computers, it's pretty much an exact science, know what you want and get it done.22:52
alias_neomcpahil thanks, I'll keep that in mind, I suppose that should improve performance too? I find in my development that debugging=slow22:52
MonkeyDustalias_neo  if it doesnt crash, you know it's working22:52
mcphailalias_neo: most of the debugging options don't affect performance. The ones which do are flagged up in menuconfig. They do add a lot to the size and build time, though22:53
jhutchins_wkalias_neo: For most normal, general purpose use a stock distribution kernel will be adequate.  They throw in as many features as they can since it's modular.22:53
alias_neogreat, thanks all for your input it's appreciated22:53
jhutchins_wkalias_neo: If you need a special kernel for something, you're likely to know that, either from project documentation or a lot deeper knowledge of kernel functions than you have right now.22:53
=== `hypermi- is now known as `hypermist`
jhutchins_wkalias_neo: A few variants like realtime are often packaged for a distro, beyond that you can go to kernel.org and learn about customizing.22:54
alias_neojhutchins_it's all in the interest of learning, I had my wife but me a new microserver for christmas so i could learn, call it a hobby, so atm I'm playing with kvm and grsecurity kernel patches22:54
mcphailalias_neo: the only other thing that might be worth tweaking is the kernel preemption method, depending on whether your running a desktop or server22:54
jhutchins_wkalias_neo: Building your own kernel (and getting it to work) is a good intermediate learning linux task.22:55
alias_neojhutchins_wk Great, then that's what I'll do.22:55
jhutchins_wk!custom kernel22:56
ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)22:56
alias_neomcphail server, infact, so much of a server that it's totaly GPU-less, even the Xeon it's running is without a GPU, took some time to figure out why the damn thing wasn't booting at first :D22:56
mcphailalias_neo: headless is the only way to go! Displays are so 20th century22:57
alias_neomcphail certainly is, especially when the idle power consumption of my server more than triples when I stick my gaming desktop's GPU in it (which i had to do to install the kvm host)22:59
PietjepukHi guys. I'm looking for a outline for linux. Can somebody suggest me which outliner to use?22:59
=== Shaun_ is now known as Shaun
alias_neoPietjepuk, pleae educate me, what is an outline?22:59
Pietjepukalias_neo: An outliner is a computer program that allows text to be organized into discrete sections that are related in a tree structure or hierarchy. Text may be collapsed into a node, or expanded and edited.  Outliners are typically used for computer programming, collecting or organizing ideas, as personal information management or for project management. Mind mappers and wikis are related types of software.23:00
alias_neoPietjepuk Thanks I'll add it to my list of things to read, I'm surprised, as a software engineer I've never heard of it23:01
alias_neoPietjepuk hope you find what you need23:02
msapiroI hope this is easy. On my 14.04 desktop box I think I must have clicked "don't upgrade" instead of "remind me later" on the 14.10 available dialog. Now I can't get it back :(23:02
alias_neoopen a terminal and type "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"23:03
alias_neoand you'll do it from the commandline23:03
Pietjepukalias_neo: thank you23:03
theadminmsapiro: First, I recommend you stay on 14.04 and just wait until 16.04 comes out -- LTS releases are more stable and require less attention.23:03
theadminmsapiro: However, if you are certain you want to upgrade, go to the Update Manager's settings and check the release upgrades tab23:04
theadminmsapiro: There should be a notification setting.23:04
Jordan_Ualias_neo: "apt-get dist-upgrade" is *not* for upgrading from one release of Ubuntu to another.23:04
* alias_neo goes oops23:04
=== andy_ is now known as Guest51269
alias_neoJordan_U and all these years I thought it was!23:05
msapirotheadmin: I already upgraded 2 other boxes. This was the last one. Also, I've set the notification setting, but it doesn't help.23:05
alias_neoJordan_U what does it actually do?23:05
theadminmsapiro: Meh. Just bring up a terminal and "sudo do-release-upgrade"23:05
theadminalias_neo: APT has two upgrade mechanisms.23:05
msapirotheadmin: it tells me no upgrade is available.23:06
theadminalias_neo: One is a "dumb" upgrade (the "upgrade" command) which literally just updates all packages. If there are new dependencies, the packages that have new dependencies will be deemed impossible to install and skipped.23:06
Jordan_Ualias_neo: It upgrades installed packages, allowing for the possibility of installing new packages or removing existing ones as needed to resolve dependancies.23:06
Bashing-ommsapiro: What results : grep Prompt= /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades ?23:06
MortezaEHello, I want to install 14.04 LTS with latest updates, so i don't want waste banwidth for downloading it's old iso image, and then do a complete update! Is there any alternative way to install?23:06
theadminalias_neo: The other is the "smart" upgrade system, dist-upgrade, which takes care of new dependencies as well23:06
Jordan_U!minimal | Bashing-om23:06
ubottuBashing-om: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD23:06

* MortezaE thinks Jordan_U answered him23:07
theadminalias_neo: Fairly logical assumption.23:07
Jordan_UBashing-om: You're welcome.23:08
theadminalias_neo: I think it sorta does that on Debian if you use a branch name rather than a release name (i.e. "stable" as opposed to "wheezy")23:08
theadminalias_neo: Ubuntu operates differently though, so...23:08
alias_neotheadmin I see, thanks for the heads up23:09
teward|pctheadmin: FWIW 'wheezy' and 'stable' point to the same repo in debian - i believe its aliases and symlinks and such, but don't quote me on that23:09
teward|pc(just an observation)23:09
theadminteward|pc: Oh, they do for *now*, the thing is, when the next "stable" release comes out that will change23:09
theadminteward|pc: "stable" will point to the new release, but "wheezy" will still be, well, Wheezy.23:09
teward|pctheadmin: where'd they state that?  (LINK!)23:10
teward|pctheadmin: well, yea, DUH23:10

kantlive-mcphail: kk one moment. i also just noticed uvesafb is being used..23:30
Jordan_Umcphail: "gfxpayload=text" isn't a kernel parameter. If you want to configure grub to handover a text mode to the kernel at boot, use GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=text in /etc/default/grub.23:32
kantlive-Jordan_U: i see gfxmode $linux_gfx_mode, can i replace the variable with text?23:33
mcphailJordan_U: cheers - my memory is rusty23:34
kantlive-mcphail: Jordan_U seems i can. booted in text mode and console works23:34
kantlive-so now to figure out why..23:34
Jordan_Ukantlive-: Simply edit /etc/default/grub and add GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=text then re-run "sudo update-grub".23:35
kantlive-Jordan_U: i could.. id like to see if i can figure out the issue tho :)23:35
Jordan_Ukantlive-: Manual edits to /boot/grub/grub.cfg will be overwritten on your next kernel update.23:35
kantlive-Jordan_U: i realize this23:35
mcphailkantlive-: i think it's just an old nvidia bug which has affected some combinations of hardware and drivers for years. I've had blank consoles which have been revived by that incantation to kill the fb in the past. My current setup doesn't need it23:37
alias_neoOk, am i really unlucky or does this happen regularly? When i built my kernel with grsec earlier today, the version was 3.14.29, now kernel.org has 3.14.30 but grsec patch doesn't have a 3.14.30 yet23:37
kantlive-mcphail: i used to have the blank vt issue which i remember v86d solved. but this is totally different as far as i can tell23:37
