afromanhello. I can't get my pc to hibernate, and I believe it might have something to do with the swap partition not being able to be used but I'm unsure. after running dpkg-reconfigure uswsup I get a message from cryptsetup "WARNING: found more than one resume device candidate:  " and 2 uuid00:24
yartnemaona: my terminal has no problem with cyrillic characters. what's your font?00:24
stikkemzi`m running ubuntu 14.10 and i find myself having some issues after some heavy 'apt-get upgrade's.. specially when they install new kernels, usually resulting in missing kernel headers and stuff. This then leads to some popup errors with "REPORT ISSUE" after reboot. Anyone else experiencing this?00:24
nemaonayart: can you please suggest some irc channel in irc.freenode.net where cyrilic font is written, because I experienced problems when i tried to connect to irc.run.net00:27

hardtailhey guys, salvaged my old MacBook Pro. to dual boot Ubuntu rEFInd is still needed today correct?00:33
daftykinshardtail: you've read the page for your model presumably?00:33
daftykinsif it has a recent release documented00:33
hardtailno I will do that now I was looking at "How to Geeks" guide to install Ubuntu on OSX00:34
daftykinsthat's unwise00:34
daftykinsi'd just resize the HFS+ volume inside OS X, then try booting from flash drive/DVD and installing beside00:35
daftykinsdepends what model though really, in x,y format00:35
hardtailEarly 2011, 8,2 - so I need to check this on the Ubuntu hardware compatibility?00:36
ubottuFor help on installing and using Ubuntu on a Mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages00:36
hardtailah thanks daftykins00:36
daftykinswow nothing since oneiric00:37
ubottuUbuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) was the fifteenth release of Ubuntu. !End-Of-Life on May 9th 2013, see http://ubottu.com/y/oneiric for more details.00:37

daftykinsjust means you get to write the new guide :) signup and you can work on it too00:38
jmaderohi all - I'm moving from nfs to samba and need some help getting it to mount00:38
daftykinsi wrote a page for an old macbook i got given00:38
jmaderoanyone around who can walk me through it?00:38
daftykinsgonna need more info than that, jmadero00:38
jmaderodaftykins: honestly need help nearly from the beginning :-/ I've used nfs for years but it's causing some issues for me00:39
hardtailhaha that would be fun daftykins, i am working on linux foundation training and switching all my hardware to ubuntu now00:39
jmaderodaftykins: I installed samba on the server (Pi), I *think* I have the folder I need shared00:39
daftykinshardtail: ah, neat. i need to get back on the edx.org course soon, got distracted00:39
jmaderoI installs cifs on the client00:39
jmaderoI guess I created a samba group and added my user to it00:40
daftykinssounds unnecessary00:40
jmaderodaftykins: that's what I thought, but followed ubuntu documentation00:40
jmaderodaftykins: I get this when I try to mount mount error(112): Host is down00:40
jmaderohost is not down though00:41
=== AcidRain is now known as Neytiri
daftykinsjmadero: so, step #1 is duplicating /etc/samba/smb.conf to /smb.conf.original to make a backup. Once that's done, edit it to create a share definition00:41
daftykinsoh you've already gotten that far?00:41
jmaderohold on let me share my conf00:41
daftykinscan you pastebin the file so i can... hehe00:41
jmaderoit's pretty simple one - literally one external drive00:41
daftykinsi was banging my head on the desk for hours once when i got a = sign missed or misplaced in the config though00:42
jmaderodaftykins: http://pastebin.com/sic14BcH00:43
jmaderodaftykins: basically just want to share that /media/MEGAMAN00:43
daftykinsis it ext4?00:44
jmaderontfs unfortunately00:44
jmaderoI know :-/00:44
daftykinswhat does owner:group look like, when you "ls -al" in that path?00:44

jmaderodrwx------  1 pi   pi   4096 Feb 12 12:55 MEGAMAN00:45
daftykinsjmadero: ok, have you run "sudo smbpasswd -a pi" to create an SMB password for pi?00:46
jmaderodid not00:46
shurtagullasko, Heres the most recent documentation lol. https://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Documentation/ You still have legacy streaming documentation.00:46
daftykinsit's meant to use the one you login with i think, but i've never seen it work00:46
jmaderoshould I?00:46
daftykinsso from the client, install 'smbclient' and try "smbclient //IP of Pi/share -U pi"00:47
jmaderodaftykins: even though on the client there is no user "Pi"00:48
jmaderoand should "share" be replaced with media/MEGAMAN?00:48
daftykinsnope, a share name is what is in [] within the config00:49
daftykinscorrect, this is picking how you want to auth against the remote server with (credentials wise)00:49

rhapsodypretty simple question.  I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and I am wondering how do I open pdf links from firefox inside the page and not in my external browser?01:42
CornellEvening all.  My ubuntu 12.04 installation is sending about 180 kb/s, and I can't figure out why.  I've rebooted with a Mint LiveCD, and am listening to radio on Totem and I'm sending about 400 b/s.  I'm trying to find out what process is sending the 180 kb/s.01:42
rhapsodyright now it only allows me the option of saving as or open externally01:43
Ben64rhapsody: what version of firefox01:43
rhapsodyBen64, it is 36.001:43
Ben64open firefox preferences, go to applications, type pdf, what is listed there?01:44
rhapsodyBen64, I think that answers it....it is set to always ask instead of preview in browser.  Many Thanks!01:45
CornellI also note that Mint LiveCD netstat currently shows two ESTABLISHED connections, Totem and Pidgin.  But Ubuntu, when using Pidgin, I had three connections.01:46
CornellOr maybe it was two, and three PulseAudio connections.  None on LiveCD.01:47
Ben64Cornell: wireshark01:47
CornellIs my PulseAudio doing something wierd?01:47
CornellBen64: I'd used tcpdump to capture a bunch, and opened the captured file with wireshark and... I've no clue what I was looking at.  I did note a large number of RTS going to a 244.0.0.x address.01:48
CornellCould PulseAudio have been configured to send out a stream?01:50
CornellAnd how would I find out?01:50

rnatvim *sigh*02:06
nicetyso you know, my bad02:06
stikkemzatal421, why do you want to set up an ubuntu server? hope i don`t get flamed for this but ubuntu is great as a desktop environment but for server environments you would probably better look into centos / debian02:06
daftykinsnothing wrong with ubuntu server02:07
atal421stikkemz: i'm remote from work for a while02:07
atal421stikkemz: i'd like to pair with co-workers02:07
CornellGonna leave for a bit, and reboot into Ubuntu02:07
stikkemzdaftykins, i`m not gonna get into why that`s not the case..02:07
atal421stikkemz: with a server in the cloud we could just ssh in and tmux02:07
atal421stikkemz: no GUI, interent is slow where i am02:07
daftykinsstikkemz: nah do tell, i'm open to new ideas - certainly not married to a given thought02:07
stikkemzatal421, so you need to run a desktop environment with multiple people on a central machine?02:08
atal421daftykins: how can i narrow that "dev envoronment" comment down so that i'm more clear?02:08
gshmuMy Ubuntu 3.13-46 can't shutdown(reboots), I update kernel to 3.16-31, but do nothing after click login02:08
Ben64stikkemz: if you're going to suggest against something, you should have facts to back it up, or it's just FUD02:08

daftykinsok, so some web jazz02:09
daftykinsi know nothing about that02:09
atal421web jazz it is02:09
atal421daftykins: this isn't a web jazz question, this is a "once i buy a digital ocean server and i log in, do i need to do anything or can i just apt-get my dev environment up?" question02:10
stikkemzBen64, ubuntu means canonical so they package thins as they consider, and let's face it.. ubuntu is great but it isn`t really the most stable distro available02:10
Ben64stikkemz: again, no facts02:10
stikkemzBen64, on a server you really want stability, and from past experience I never had issues with debian/centos on servers02:11
daftykinsatal421: well if you want a GUI, getting a VPS is just... no02:11
stikkemzBen64, but i can`t seem to not have problems with ubuntu from time to time02:11

DrMaxquestion: aside from Avahi, what Ubuntu package could broadcast SSDP packets?02:12

cornellGoogle told me about nethogs.02:12
daftykinsstikkemz: why would you bring religion into this? that's childish and beneath this channel, don't bring such silly statements here again please.02:12
cornellI've rebooted into Ubuntu, installed nethogs and run, as root, for eth1 (don't have an eth0)02:13
daftykinsuse what you want, but yeah your opinion is based on your own experience alone - as is mine that mine run fine :>02:13
cornellNethogs shows appropriate sent and received, sending about 0.5 kb/s.  But System Monitor is showing sending 180 kb/s.02:14
Hardtailhey daftykins, just tried to usb after creating the free space. it found the installer no problem - selected "try ubuntu" then it went to load, black screen with 'no device controller found" it actually turned the backlighting on my keyboard and then just hung there so I had to force a reboot02:15
rnatatal421: play some interstellar bgm and read this https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-14-0402:16

atal421rnat: thanks for the link, not sure i understand what interstellar bgm means though02:16
stikkemzdaftykins, it wasn`t a religious thing, it was a a joke.. canonical packages things following some standards that other distros (like debian) create. It`s the same concept behind not installing Mint instead of ubuntu.. yeah, mint looks nice, but it`s based on older versions of ubuntu, so if you want the newest packages you will go for ubuntu over mint.. same things goes for ubuntu and debian02:17

Ben64cornell: theres your answer (probably)02:19
cornellWhat are you seeing, Ben64?02:20
Ben64shows what connections you have and whats making them02:20
Ben64dropbox, pidgin, totem02:20
stikkemzBen64, right.. ok.. categorized me and this conversation is over.02:20
cornellDropbox should be doing next to nothing, pidgin a bit more, and totem sending littile, receiving a lot.02:21
cornellWhich nethogs shows02:21
Ben64cornell: i'm not seeing the issue?02:22
cornellInteresting, Ben64.  I don't see anything in netstat, nor nethogs, but the System Monitor is showing that I'm sending 180 kb/s.02:23
cornellIt seems like I have three tools, two are saying  all's well, and the third is saying I'm sending out piles of stuff.02:23
cornellI'm thinking two are right and one is wrong.02:24
daftykinsclose the other programs, watch for a change02:24

trreesHi, I have booted lubuntu from a usb on an old ThinkPad, but I cannot detect Wifi... any thought on what to do?02:40
lancastermy bad i knew that one lol02:40
=== peer is now known as Guest14125
lancasteri'm wondering if its possible put a password on su command02:41
lancasterso if do a sudo su02:41
lancasteri get a different password that my user had02:42
trreesI tried going to the additional drivers section, but it says that no propietary drivers are detected.02:43
rnattrrees: lspci | grep -i wireless02:46
Ben64lancaster: you should not be doing "sudo su"02:46
cornellI'm thinking that System Monitor isn't showing an accurate situation.  Seem reasonable?02:46
trreesrnat: I'll try that; is the bar between lspci and grep necessary?02:47
Ben64cornell: possibly02:47
Ben64trrees: yes02:47
cornelllancaster: sudo su may be convenient but it defeats the purpose of protecting your system from mistakes, or worse.02:47
trreesBen64: How does one type it?02:47
Ben64cornell: it also creates a bad environment and can cause problems and prevent you from logging in02:48
Ben64trrees: shift + \ usually02:48
cornellI'm going with that, Ben64; System Monitor is misinforming.02:48
cornellThat too Ben64.02:48
lancasterBen64 thanks how can i remove su from my user?02:49
Ben64lancaster: not sure what you mean02:49
lancasterso when i try sudo su i get a permission denied02:49
lancasteri dont want my user can be a root02:50
cornellWouldn't that be the sudoers file?02:50
lancasterso i need do sudo but not su with this specific user02:51
trreesrnat: I entered this and received no output.02:52
trreesrnat: I suppose that means that there is no wireless capability?02:53
Ben64lancaster: what do you need sudo for then? and for real, don't use "sudo su"02:53
rnattrrees: to confirm that you can try lshw02:54
rnattrrees: you may have to install lshw02:54
trreesrnat: lshw gives lots of output... what am I looking for?02:55
lancasterit dont asks for a password02:55
lancasterif i put a password on root user i will asked?02:55
trreesrnat: I found a CardBus bridge02:56
lancasterthat will solve my problem02:56
Ben64lancaster: that will not solve your problem, it will create more02:56

dsyntaxi've noticed performance decrease when i am writing to the swap... would anyone reccomend a super low swapiness (05-10) or no swap at all...03:32
Bashing-omdsyntax: depends; under load what returns from terminal command -> free <- for the 'swap' usage ?03:40
killshotBRalgum rasileiro....03:41
dsyntaxBashing-om, i'll check it out, usually its when i'm downloading torrents (large ones)... i'll usually be at 2-5% on qbittorrent... then when its writing i'll be at 99% usage.03:49
dsyntaxi'd say i was at like 25% active and 75% cache03:50
Bashing-omdsyntax: Sounds like ya running low on ram, and having to compensate with using swap apace .. how much ram is installed ?03:51
bryanwhich is best between 14.04 and 14.1003:54
Ben64bryan: depends on your needs03:54
laskoThe term "best" of anything is very personal and depends on your needs.03:55
laskoGenerally a high version of something implies it has been revisioned to have "better" stuff in it or "better bugs" depending on how you look at it lol03:56
laskoBut ultimately it is against based on your needs/wants and the amount of work you're willing to put into it.03:56
dsyntaxBashing-om, i've got 4gb ram :/03:57
bryanmy laptop seems to be a hole lot slower with 14.1003:58
Bashing-ombryan: 14.04 == Long Term Support == stability . 14.10 has 9 months support. are you willing to trade newest for the effort ?03:59
dsyntaxall seems to work well... it just gets sluggish for 5 seconds when qbittorrent writes... i guess i'll just have to deal... would you say i shouldn't disable swap?03:59
dsyntaxBashing-om, i like how you threw the == in there XD04:00
Bashing-omdsyntax: You should not be hammering swap with 4 gigs of ram ... I too run 4 gigs .. and have swappines set to a value of 10 .. I rarely touch the swap partiton ( and I have a very small swap partition) .04:00
dsyntaxi've got my swappiness at 10 as well... i think i'll have to wait till my next rig04:01

dsyntaxBashing-om, i'm running a laptop, celeron @ 1.8 ghz, 4gb ram ddr2... i've been thinking to buy a pentium 4 extreme (same chipset) for $604:05
dsyntaxprobably the best investment i could do.04:05

atal421and then just make sure suders can see that directory04:57
crlcan81well if it means what I think it means the 'mount' command causes a directery to be used, and bind makes it stick?04:57
crlcan81I've never used the bind command, am I correct in my terminology for Linux?04:57

atal421mount --bind /path/to/shared/dir /home/user/whetev04:59
icetoothit mounts one directory at another location04:59
icetoothso you can have as many directories as you want pointing to a single location05:00
crlcan81basically creating a 'link' to that directory, that's cool.05:00

Nikeshno.. i am not sure, sorry. but yes, should be a way to install them manually if you have them on a drive, you can use dpkg to install them08:12
Nikeshi assume (not sure) that a large percentage of this channel are in the usa, which are mostly asleep right now. maybe in about 6hrs there will be more people around who could help08:13

k1lhillary: 12.10 is long dead. you need to upgrade to 13.04 then 13.10 and then 14.04. you might be faster with reinstalling a 14.0410:14

andersbsI see libsemanage1 is installed in trusty and references to pam_selinux.so in /etc/pam.d but do those references actually do anything on a default installed trusty system?12:05
jpdsandersbs: Yeah, there are no policys for Ubuntu.12:06

arcskyHi all, question 1. when i added something in /etc/network/interfaces how do i apply it? 2. do i still add dns in resolv.conf or ?12:07
jpdsarcsky: Depends on what you added.12:07
andersbsjpds: so basically it's there in case someone wants to have a go at it but by default it does nothing?12:07
jpdsandersbs: By default, it's not supported.12:07
zer0hhey, anybody?12:07
White_CatAny way to make ubuntu ssh connections not use a password?12:07
zer0h I cant seem to find wifi networks12:07
zer0hthough my wifi card is detected12:08
jpdsWhite_Cat: Use SSH keys.12:08
andersbsalright. guess it's pointless of me to remove those references then since they do nothing12:08
White_CatI have the same ssh key in the .shh directory and it makes no difference whatsoever12:08
White_Catit still insists on asking for a password12:08
EriC^White_Cat, you have to use /etc/ssh or something12:08
White_Catjpds yeah, thats what I am trying to do an failing12:08
jpdsWhite_Cat: How did you configure the SSH key on the target host?12:08
White_Catoh hello EriC^ :)12:08
EriC^hello :)12:08
White_CatI copy pasted the .shh key on the .shh directory on both computers12:09
jpdsWhite_Cat: .ssh*12:09
k1l_White_Cat: its ssh not shh12:09
White_Catyeah thats what I mean :)12:09
burkmatWhite_Cat: On the receiving node, the file needs to be .ssh/authorized_keys or .ssh/authorized_keys212:09
White_Catoh it needs that exact name?12:09
k1l_White_Cat:  and that is not the right way how you do it.12:09
jpdsWhite_Cat: You're suppose to put it into: .ssh/authorized_keys on the other end.12:09
White_CatI had it called id_rsa12:10
jpdsWhite_Cat: That's your private key.12:10
k1l_white please read that to get to know what you do there at all: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys12:10

ermorenoCHUPADME EL BORNE12:10
jpdsWhite_Cat: Do NOT copy that one around.12:10
White_CatI shouldnt?12:10
White_Catjust the public key?12:11
jpdsWhite_Cat: Yes.12:11
jpdsWhite_Cat: It's called *private* key for a reason.12:11
White_Catso just authorized_keys.pub12:11
White_Catwell yes but the two servers would need to connect to each other :p12:11
jpdsWhite_Cat: What are you trying to accomplish?12:11
k1l_White_Cat: please read the help page i mentioned. you mix a lot of stuff there.12:12
White_Catall I want to acomplish is getting passwordless connections from one server to the other12:12
jpdsWhite_Cat: What for?12:12
k1l_give it a 10minutes read and know what you do and safe 3 more hours of copying the wrong stuff between pcs12:12
White_Catjpds seeveral tasks12:14
White_Catone is for barman12:14
White_Catone is for rsync12:14
White_Catone is for rsnapshot12:14
White_Catno not rsnapshot12:14
k1l_White_Cat: please invest the time and read the page linked you. you miss basic knowledge and need to learn that.12:15
White_Catk1l_ thats all I have been doing for the past 1.5 weeks12:17
White_Catsorry I am just frustrated12:17
k1l_White_Cat: read that page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys it explaines what it is and how to setup and transfer the keys12:19
White_Catk1l_ the keys are in both locations and I am not getting a permission denied12:21
White_CatEriC^ I pmed you :)12:23
germanstudentHow do I make changes in /etc/sysctl.conf permanent? (IPv6 in this case) Seems to get overwritten periodically (14.04)12:24
jpdsgermanstudent: I'd suggest adding them as a subfile in /etc/sysctl.d/ instead.12:24
popeyWhite_Cat: have you put the key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys ? Have you set the permissions of ~/.ssh to 0700 and the permission on ~/.ssh/authorized_keys to 0600 ?12:25
arcskyjpds: i added iface eth1 ip netmask and gw12:25
jpdsarcsky: So, ifup eth1 ?12:25
germanstudentjpds, thank you!12:26
arcskyjpds: iface eth0 inet static12:26
White_Catis authorized_keys a directory or a file?12:26
popeyWhite_Cat: its a file12:26
popeyWhite_Cat: which is detailed on the page you were linked to12:26
White_Catit is a copy of my public key12:27
popeyhave you set the permissions correctly?12:27
popeyWhite_Cat: when you ssh in from the other machine, do "ssh -vvv <hostname>" and then examine the output carefully. -vvv will produce a lot of output, which you could pastebin for us to help with12:28
jpdsWhite_Cat: That's not the output of ssh -vvv12:30
White_Catdebug3: Could not load "/home/custom_user/.ssh/id_rsa" as a RSA1 public key12:31
White_Catno it isnt12:31
White_Catthat was the permissions I had12:31
arcskyjpds: http://pastebin.com/72YUhDmR12:31
White_Catdo you want me to pastebin the entire -vvv?12:31
jpdsWhite_Cat: And you seem to have copied your private key (id_rsa) to authorized_keys.12:31
jpdsWhite_Cat: You're suppose to copy the public key: id_rsa.pub.12:31
White_CatI copied the public key12:33
burkmatWhite_Cat: The authorized_keys file is the same size as the id_rsa file, not the id_rsa.pub file.12:33
arcskyjpds: will it come back after reboot???12:33
White_Catyou are absolutely right12:34
White_CatI was splitting hair over nothing?12:34
jpdsWhite_Cat: As we said, you're missing some basic knowledge, read the page.12:35
zer0hwhy does my network manager disable me from searching and connecting to wifi?12:35
jpdsarcsky: Well, you have two gateways set.12:35
jpdsarcsky: That could get interesting.12:36
jpdsWhite_Cat: And do not strart copying private keys between different machines.12:38
zer0hcan somebody help me out please?12:41

tnkhanhgermanstudent: oh I see12:46
arcskyu can have many det. gw's12:46
germanstudentjpds, tnkhanh, OpenTokix  that is not directly ubuntu related. Sometimes I google for solutions to specific problems, that I can't remember for month. When I found the best solution, I write down what worked and which commands I used. Are there good tools for this?12:46
tnkhanhgermanstudent: I use pen and papers. Sometimes I dont rely too much on technology12:47
jpdsgermanstudent: Wikis, note pads, personally I put my system configs into something like Puppet.12:47
OpenTokixjpds: germanstudent is +q from some reason, and can't talk.12:48

zer0hjpds, actually it was working fine. I upgraded from 12 to 14. What I recently did was change my wifi settings...changed my network id and stuff and now it is like this12:52
zer0hneed to check ki_, one thing I did was that I installed cinnamon and the settings were in gnome earlier when I had set up the connection12:52

ppfi added a combined sink, which is supposed to output sound through both my speakers and headphones15:14
ppfwhen i boot up my system, it works for a while, and then just stops15:14
=== jtruckz is now known as jtruckszombie
ppfstops as in, there is no more sound output on the combined sink (both spearks and headphones sink work fine)15:15

qurveI have a really dumb question: When you install nginx from apt on Ubuntu 14.04, what service manager (if any) does it get installed as?15:26
qurveI see the master/worker processes running but both service nginx status and /etc/init.d/nginx status return that it's not running.15:26
illizianhmm I was gonna say nginx qurve15:27
OpenTokixqurve: service nginx status * nginx is running15:27
OpenTokixqurve: try service nginx restart15:27
OpenTokixqurve: and then status again15:27
qurveThe problem is that it *is* running, but service nginx status says it is not.15:28
qurveIt's running, listening on the specified port, and responding to requests.15:28
qurveBut my cookbook test fails because service nginx status returns an error code and says it's not running, which is why I'm confused.15:28
illizianqurve: it's meant to be under nginx - works here15:28
illizian$ sudo service nginx status15:28
illizian * nginx is not running15:28
illizianah I see15:28
krabadorwhen a .desktop file properly created on /usr/share/applications, it's available on the dash?15:29

White_Catso i did a clean install of ubuntu server15:30
White_Catand it will not boot15:30
White_CatI get grub prompt15:30
White_Catthis server has EFI15:30
White_Catand ubuntu installed with the efi partition15:30
White_Catis it impostible to fix ubuntu with grub?15:30
ikoniait is totally possible15:31
qurveAdditionally, if I `service nginx stop` and `/etc/init.d/nginx stop`, the process still runs. O_o15:31
ikoniagrub2 and ubuntu fully support EFI setup15:31
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, not impossible.  I just wrestled with this yesterday.15:31
qurveSeems like something else is controlling it.15:31
ikoniait's well documented on the grub2 wiki page White_Cat15:32
ikoniacheck the ubuntu grub2 wiki page15:32
pgunnarsppf: theres like 5 logfiles15:32
ikoniait walks through the auto setup and any manual fixes15:32
White_Catwhy would ubuntu setup itself be broken?15:32
ppfpgunnars: look at the youngest one15:32
pgunnarsim assuming the oldest is most important,15:32
pgunnarswhy youngest15:32
pgunnarsi just reinstalled it15:32
ikoniaWhite_Cat: sometimes it gets the boot loader setup wrong15:32
ikoniaWhite_Cat: it's still a new technology for a lot of distros including ubuntu and it depends on the machine and human interaction on some cases15:33

yartHello! Is there any way to prevent the hdd going in standby mode after a few seconds while on battery?15:34
OldSamhi, I have a problem with X11 and the graphics signal (with HDMI switch), I often get a blank screen without X11, which I can only fix by restarting the displaymanager... (using 14.04 LTS) - I have read a recommended way is to manually create/adapt a xorg.conf but I fail creating that: Using "X -configure" the auto-created file does not work at all (showing no display), though basically Ubuntu did recognize my display, just atm I am in the X11 environment. So...15:34
OldSam is there a way to get the "current" settings in an xorg.conf ? Or other hints how I can fix such an issue?15:34

bazhang!grub2 | White_Cat have a read15:38
ubottuWhite_Cat have a read: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub215:38
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, you must set an efi_boot partition and send your bootloader to that target15:38
bazhangalso #grub White_Cat15:39
White_Catcfhowlett indeed and the efi partitoin was created by the clean setup15:42
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, and that's where you set your bootloader??15:42
White_Catcfhowlett it should do that automatically right?15:43
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, mine tried to target /dev/sda not /dev/sda1 where efi_boot was set.  best to verify15:43

White_Catcfhowlett i dont know the command to verify15:44
White_CatI lack a live cd as well15:44
White_Catwhile I am trying ot create one i would rather try to determine the problem with grub commands if I can15:44
White_Cator maybe even fix15:44
White_Catit shouldnt be something drastic15:44
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, reintstall grub should be suficient15:44
White_Catimpossible without livecd right?15:45
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, yep.  sorry.  good ubuntu users don't leave home without their ubuntu USB  :)15:45
White_CatI didnt leave home without it15:45

SiilwynHi people, I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, not running any special apps, sometimes the 'Log Out' option does not work, basically nothing happens when pressed. The only noticeable thing is that there is no text whatsoever in the top bar at the left. It does work after I use 'Lock' and login again. How can I troubleshoot this? Any logs that I can look into?15:54
SchrodingersScatIs there any good test to see why my files copied from thunar sometimes aren't the same size?  I do sync the folder with owncloud, and can test that later to see if it's specific to those folders.  xubuntu 14.10, ext4 from /home/$user/dir1 to /home/$user/dir2 and the dir2 file will be just shy of the full size.15:54
=== mlocher_ is now known as mlocher
ppfSchrodingersScat: how do you check file size?15:56
SchrodingersScatppf: I was doing the copy again, and it would say for example "Replace 492.57MB file with same name file with size 527.2MB File?"15:57
x90SchrodingersScat it is not possibile if it is same file15:58
x90SchrodingersScat it is possibile for stream data files =)15:58
ppfDepending on what your tool is doing there, might also be possible for sparse files15:59
SchrodingersScatx90: I can also test that, i do have a short alias that sha256sums the file, finds any files with the same name and sha256sums those to compare, but idk why they would be different sizes15:59
x90SchrodingersScat not possibile maybe your file system has problem15:59
SchrodingersScatoh, not possible15:59
x90some file systems using hash system15:59
SchrodingersScatppf: sparse files? tell me more?16:00
x90SchrodingersScat if you have stream data file it is normal16:00
OldSamSchrodingersScat: try "file filename" to see what files you got (header etc.), you can compare this first16:00
ppfSchrodingersScat: a sparse file is a file with "holes" in it, i.e. larger chunks of 0s16:01
ppfthe FS will not actually store those 0s, so the actual file size is smaller than the apparent size16:02
SchrodingersScatthey /are/ video files, but then on the second copy it normally corrects the 1/8 that seem to do this.16:02

zgrgeHello everyone! I've issues with my samsung 840 EVO SSD (low performance), after some search I've found solution - wrong alignment. In order to fix the problem I shall align partition in 6144 (6MiB) boundaries. But the only tool that can do that is gdisk (mode x -> l). I have MBR table so I need another tool, anyone can recommend anything?17:05
daftykinszgrge: you're aware they also have a major ongoing firmware bug that degrades performance?17:06
daftykinsso 4K alignment isn't the only factor17:06
zgrgedaftykins: yes, I've upgraded firmware after 3 months of purchase. it didn't help, hdparm -tT shows 20MB/s17:07

SiilwynHi people, I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, sometimes the 'Log Out' option does not work, basically nothing happens when pressed. The only noticeable thing is that there is no text whatsoever in the top bar at the left. It does work after I use 'Lock' and login again. How can I troubleshoot this? Any logs that I can look into?17:13
SupaYoshiRecently I am reading more and more about cryptoware locking files and stuff, I was wondering what's a good way to create versioned backups?17:15
SupaYoshiI am thinking to do it with rsync.17:15
pumiceToday my launcher on my desktop for gmail stopped working, and when clicked on goes to ubuntu start page every time no matter how many times I deleted it and started over, what has happened to my gmail desktop link?17:15
SupaYoshiSo lets say, I let Windows make backups to a certain mapped drive, or folder. (or from cobian backup) which is what I use for Windows.17:15
SupaYoshiI'd like to make a copy with rsync from Linux from these files every x days, to make a seperate backup17:15
SupaYoshiThat would be inaccesable by the cryptoware if such an event took place.17:16
WhitorSiilwyn, I'm not sure...  I saw you asked this earlier...   try google for answering your Q. if that doesn't get oyu anywhere... try re-submitting your Q every couple few hours or so..17:16
pumiceis anyone having problems with there launchers or desktop links going straight to ubuntu start page?17:19

wxlhey folks, can someone please tell me how to get .XCompose to work so i can define my own compose key combinations17:29
WebonauteWorkhi. I have an issue with ctrl+space, I searched around google and it said to purge ibus. I did it but when I do the key again, it continue to try to changer my keyboard setting.17:30
wxland to be clear, i have defined my own ~/.XCompose, which includes the default for my locale (include "%L") and no matter what windows i reopen or how many times i restart, nothing happens17:30
mysupperWebonauteWork, install language pack and there's options selecting ibus and check keyboard input at system_options.17:31
wxlWebonauteWork: ibus is the default input method. you sure you don't have another installed? or perhaps that's the hotkey for changing your keyboard layout/17:31
SiilwynWhitor, thanks for replying. I already did a lot of searching on the internet. And I actually re-submitted my question here for three times now. (=17:32
mysupperlinux multilanguage pros almost solved I guess.17:32
SiilwynWhitor, I'm currently thinking about creating a bug report.17:32
mysupperjust 1,2,3 step as I said.17:32
WebonauteWorkwhat is managing keyboard if I dont have ibus?17:33
wxlibus manages the input method. for example, ibus-anthy allows you to type romaji to input japanese17:33
mysupperWebonauteWork, just install ibus and select keyboard options at setting screen.17:33
mysupperI'm just user not interested in really what's in side.17:34
mysupperas long as pros not exists. :)17:34
WebonauteWorkit not help me. I try all option in ibus. nothing work. than I desinstall it and purge and it continue throwing the keyboard layout change when I do ctrl+space17:37
WebonauteWorkso something else bypass ibus17:37
wxlWebonauteWork: it depends on whether or not you're talking about the keyboard layout (i.e. you have a japanese keyboard) or the input method (i.e. you want to type japanese using a non-japanese keyboard for example, like with ibus-anthy i type nihongo and get にほんご)17:38
soahcccDo you have to format all partitions in order to change partition schema or can you convert it somehow? I screwed the raid rebuild a bit and now I have mixed schemas one of which I cannot install grub on: https://gist.github.com/2called-chaos/3fae02f7e3d24be2b41317:38
WebonauteWorkwxl: its english keyboard17:39
WebonauteWorkI dont have any other keyboard installed17:40
wxlWebonauteWork: with an english input method only?17:40
WebonauteWorkI only have one keyboard layout installed and is the default english(us) one17:41
wxlthen when you hit ctrl-space, what happens?17:41
WebonauteWorkit display a small icon which select english(us) keyboard17:41
wxland if you right click on that, what is it?17:42
WebonauteWorkit do nothing. its an icon just showing the keyboard currenly used17:42

daftykinswamicho: you most likely cannot pick between them, assuming you're trying to say you want to make the nvidia one the sole 'card'... that's not how optimus setups work18:15
daftykinswamicho: but if you do that, a log will say what is wrong18:16

MoPacI've tried purging all of the culprit packages and starting over; including accepting the license. I've tried manually creating or deleting the folders in the partial downloads area.... always end up stuck in this loop of install failures18:46
ikoniaMoPac: thats because you are using software that is nothing to do with ubuntu18:47
ikoniaMoPac: you're using 3rd party packages from repos that are not being maintained by the ubuntu project18:47

MoPacikonia: I'm aware of the fact that the packages are third-party and what that means. But the actual issue that I'm trying to deal with now is, at a minimum, how to prevent apt and update-manager from bothering me all the time about it.

Even in the absence of a resolution to whatever apt is seeing, I don't even notice issues with fonts or whatever the substantive glitch is. But I do notice that I am getting harried by error messages that I don't want and would like to suppress regardless. Yes, trying to change the packages themselves is one approach.18:53

I want to disable update-notifier  or update-manager error popups for specific packages or in instances where the infromation was not from an update-manager GUI session (but simply got passed because I ran apt-get in terminal. Is there a way to do this without uninstalling the GUI tools altogether?19:06
ikoniaMoPac: that is not realistic19:06
eikon81gtrust me I haven't done anything special.. :\19:06
BarnabasDKikonia, however if you remove /etc/dnsmasq..d the deamon wont start, even with network manager19:06
ikoniaMoPac: the same premise is true a.) fix the problem b.) ignore the messages19:06
BarnabasDKsort of strange19:06
ikoniaBarnabasDK: correct19:06
ikonianot strange19:06
MoPacikonia: The problem *is* the messages.19:07
ikoniaMoPac: no it's not19:07
ikoniaMoPac: the problem are the packages19:07
ikoniathe error messages are alerting you to this19:07
daftykinsMoPac: trying to stop being notified about a problem isn't fixing it :(19:07
eikon81gNo error this time. Thanks again daftykins and everyone else. So do you have any recommendations to resolve the boot partition size?19:07
smintheikon i can help19:08
daftykinseikon81g: not without backup and reinstall19:08
MoPacikonia: There is an error, a mismatch, in the software. There is a difference between what apt expects and what it sees, and it alerts users because it expects that this might signal a problem for the users. But it's plain wrong to tell a user that the user's needs don't define what is and is not an actual "problem"19:08
eikon81gbum. well I guess I can just limp along for awhile. When I install did I do something weird to cause that? like a setting or something?19:08
sminth100 py how can i  help u19:09
ikoniaMoPac: the packges are the problem - address that19:09
ikoniaMoPac: the sooner you accept that and start addressing it, the quicker the problem will stop19:09
daftykinseikon81g: dunno, typically a separate /boot isn't even made anymore, so perhaps this has been after many upgrades / years ?19:09
eikon81gand daftykins once this finishes should I go ahead and remove the old kernal packages again and clean the headers again?19:09
MoPacikonia: I'm the *user* -- I decide what conditions are problems and what conditions are not problems.19:10
ikoniaMoPac: ok - then I've told you how to fix it19:10
ikoniaMoPac: fix the packages, or ignore the errors19:10
ikoniaMoPac: you decide which option you want to do19:10
eikon81ghumm.. I installed xubunut at the beginning of the month and I have been learning a little at a time just using it. I am new to the linux scene... I used a fresh format and partition so I am not sure what I could have done :\19:10
daftykinseikon81g: mmm, well you should now have a newer kernel than -30 in /boot so i'd reboot into that first, then clean up the old19:11
MoPacikonia: You haven't said how to fix it -- you've actually just said that fixing it has nothing to do with Ubuntu.19:11
ikoniaMoPac: I have told you how to fix it, talk to the people who maintain those packages19:11
ikoniaMoPac: or you can remove those packages19:11
eikon81gok gotcha. I have to copy the commands and save them and change the version number and I should be able to knock it out.19:11
ikoniaMoPac: or you can ignore the errors19:11
MoPacikonia: okay, so my choice is to ignore the errors. I'd like to execute that choice by actually suppressing the error messages.19:12
ikoniaMoPac: not going to happen19:12
maggI’m trying to enable component-to-componet communication using: needs. But don’t know that casing needs uses I’ve seen camelcase, snakecase and with a /. My component name is AdvancedMetricComponent19:13
MoPacikonia: It's open-source software that's part of Ubuntu. Maybe someone here knows about it that could get me started on modifying it19:13
ikoniaMoPac: you'll need to modify the code19:13
MoPacikonia: That's exactly what I just said19:13
ikoniaMoPac: check out the code and make the changes only you require, rebuild and repackages it, host your own repo19:13
labsinMoPac apt-get source apt19:13
ikoniaMoPac: there is your path to getting a custom updater package that no-one other than you will want19:13
WebonauteWorkahhh! I found my ctrl+space issue. configured into fcitx19:14
MoPacikonia: I understand that process.19:14
eikon81gthe mv command we ran moved the contents to a new location on the drive? I am just unsure how that worked and what the end result was SORRY I am such a newb19:14
daftykinseikon81g: yeah the backup files went to /home/you/ just in case being without them causes bad things19:15
Bashing-omeikon81g: When you installed did you choose "LVM" there is a present bug .19:15
MoPacikonia: I don't understand the need to snark so hard at someone in a help forum19:16
daftykinsit did look like LVM19:16
ikoniaMoPac: no-one is snarking19:16
ikoniaMoPac: you're asking for a bad thing - and you're not prepared to do it yourself,19:16
eikon81gyes I used the LVM thinking I'd have some flexibility down the line19:16
Bashing-omeikon81g: Perhaps: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1357093 .19:16
ikoniaMoPac: you don't want to fix the solution, you want someone to maintain a single custom package for you - it's not really acceptable19:16
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1357093 in ubiquity (Ubuntu) "LVM or Encrypted install creates too small /boot partition" [Undecided,Confirmed]19:16
eikon81gmaybe since my drive is only 80gb the bug made a very small boot partition?19:16
daftykins80GB? crikey.19:16
MoPaciikonia: I never asked anyone to make a custom package for me.19:17
MoPacikonia: That's ridiculous.19:17
ikoniaMoPac: yes you did19:17
eikon81gok dafty I see that now. They are fine just to leave there right?19:17
maggsorry wrong window19:17
ikoniaMoPac: I explained you'd need to build package and maintain your own repo of that custom package19:17
ikoniaMoPac: you said "I know the process"19:17
daftykinseikon81g: yeah i don't see why not, i couldn't tell if they were attached to a package so i figured move was better than delete19:17
eikon81gyea, that looks like what mine did @ that bug19:18
=== MagePsycho_ is now known as MagePsycho
eikon81gright on, you guys are so good it's sickening. LOL!!! So does the OS still "know" where they are?19:18
MoPacikonia:  I know about the packaging process. I'm not familiar with the update-notifier code itself. I speculated that someone who is familiar with it might have some advice about where to look for the error popup, for instance.19:18
ikoniaMoPac: so basically - you want someone to re-write the code for you19:18
eikon81gor if we hit an issue we would need to move them back manually?19:18
ikoniaMoPac: which means they will need to maintain it or the next ubuntu updated will undo it19:19
MoPacikonia: That is not at all what that statement means19:19
ikoniaMoPac: the REAL solution is to FIX the packages19:19
ikoniaMoPac: and you'll be a better community member others will benifit19:19
* eikon81g turns into a sponge to soak up knowledge from daftykins 19:19
ikoniarather than this over the top solution for a custom apt build19:19
daftykinseikon81g: nah it won't have a clue, but when you reboot to boot into the newer kernel, i don't see any reason it'd want those files19:20
daftykinssince they were for an older kernel or two19:20
MoPacikonia: I don't know how over-the-top it would be until/unless I really look through the update-notifier code, I suppose. It might be as simple as commenting out a section19:21
ikoniaMoPac: then look at the code19:21
eikon81gI am going to go ahead and do a quick reboot and then I will attempt to remove the older kernal *crosses fingers* gotcha daftykins. Makes sense.. A million thanks, I'll brb19:21
ikoniaMoPac: do you know C and python ?19:21
ikoniaMoPac: and FYI: it's not as simple as commenting out that section19:21
fluvvellis there anywhere I can get help with a monitor thats not displaying correctly?19:23
MoPacikonia: I know some. I'm not an advanced or professional programmer. I also know enough about the entire process to know that having a personal update-notifier version could end up being easier than trying to have custom personally modified packages for netflix-desktop, wine-silverlight5.1-installer, etc19:23
ikoniaMoPac: you couldn't be more wrong if you wanted to me19:24
ikoniaMoPac: fixing some basic deb packaging errors is MUCH quicker and smimpler than cusotmising the whole package manager to surpress errors and then maintaining that19:24
MoPacikonia: So consider that you mocked me by claiming (wrongly) that I was trying to get someone to write me a modified apt package, but your advice is for me to go to third parties and get them to modify their packages for me19:24
* daftykins chuckles19:24
ikoniaMoPac: no-one is mocking you19:24
ikoniaMoPac: my advice is to get third parties to fix their packages yes, they may not even know its broken, or better still YOU fix them and feed the fixes back to them19:25
ikoniajust looks like the definition or manifest is wrong19:25
ikoniashouldn't take long at all19:25
fluvvellare the intel video drivers buggy or are sparklies on my screen supposed to be there? Or is that another channel19:29

fluvvelllasko, pixels that rotate in different colours19:30
laskooh. Well then nevermind. I'll take my seat on teh floor and watch.19:30
fluvvelldaftykins, its only when I'm trying to get the screen to run in its full resolution of 2550x1600. And it does it with 14.04 and 14.10, installed or booted with an iso.19:31
daftykinswhat system?19:31
daftykinspresumably intel on-die graphics, so which CPU?19:32
daftykins*2560x1600, which cable type?19:32
ikoniaI'll be impressed of an on cpu display gpu can drive that display19:32
daftykinsthey've been capable of that for years, yes19:33
doomlord_1i've got that here for sure19:33
doomlord_1well, 2560x144019:33
ikoniareally, they will drive that sort of display ?19:33
doomlord_1yes, even 4k19:33
doomlord_1they wont redraw as fast as discrete GPUs19:33
q_how would I dpkg-reconfigure for all packages on 14.10 -- there doesn't seem to be an -all flag anymore19:33
doomlord_1but they can certainly drive the monitor19:33
daftykinsi think you have to go displayport for the truly high though, not sure how high dual-link DVI goes19:34
doomlord_1current intel iGPU can certainly do 3 monitors, and it can do 4k (i doubt it will do 3x4k though)19:34
doomlord_1yeah i think you need displayport for 4k19:34
eikon81gthanks so much to everyone who chipped in especially daftykins! I will continue along and WHEN I get stuck again I'll be back, have a great week everyone!19:34
daftykinseikon81g: enjoy :)19:34
q_I'm getting random crashes after recently installing 14.10 - never had that on this laptop before been using ubuntu for 2 years.  Where should I start ?19:34
daftykinsq_: memtest19:35
eikon81g:) I removed the .30 kernal all by myself!! LOL :)19:35
q_daftykins, ahh yes, let me do that now19:35
daftykinsheh, wonder if q knows it'll take hours19:36
fluvvelllasko, where do I paste the screenshot?19:37

daftykinsfluvvell: can you answer the other questions i had?19:44
=== mkv is now known as m4v
zennyHI, the wireless works hell slow and the usb ports stop detecting devices after I ran apt-get dist-upgrde today in ubuntu 14.04. Both wireless and usb detection works fine from the windows in the same dual-boot laptop. Anyone experienced this. The laptop is HP Envy.19:45
q_daftykins, memtest passed - next step ?19:45
daftykinsyou did just one pass already?19:45
laskofrenda__: Issues related to your OpenVPN configuration would fall under consulting their documentation not Ubuntu.19:45

fujimuffinscan u help me with something pls?19:46
fluvvelldaftykins,           product: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4460  CPU @ 3.20GHz, yes its graphics on the motherboard19:46
daftykinsok so haswell19:46
daftykinsnah, on processor19:46
daftykinsand cable type?19:46
fujimuffinsso im trying to dual boot ubuntu on my windows 7 computer19:46
fujimuffinsand i've put the iso onto my usb stick19:47
fujimuffinsbut when i try to boot up ubuntu19:47
daftykinsfujimuffins: you can press enter less you know, nice long sentences are great :)19:47
fluvvelldaftykins, its a DVI cable which worked on the previous motherboard/graphics card i had working this monitor, so dual-link is fine.19:47
daftykinsfluvvell: which ubuntu again?19:47
fujimuffinsand switch my start up to my usb it freezes at this https://i.imgur.com/5MIh9YF.jpg19:48
fujimuffinsoh sorry19:48
daftykinsfujimuffins: oh dear you're running RAID.19:48
fujimuffinswhat does that mean?19:48
fluvvelldaftykins, 14.04.2  - also on the "booted from iso" 14.10 exactly the same issues and effect.19:48
daftykinsfujimuffins: you have two hard disks combined together in a striped RAID 0 array19:49
fujimuffinsok. what should i do?19:49
daftykinsi don't think that's really going to be compatible, but it's not even getting as far as booting so your download may be corrupt or your flash drive may've not been created successfully19:49
fluvvelldaftykins, out of the box I cant get the 2nd modeline to be available to the Display settings xrandr panel, I've needed to put in an .xprofile  file to achieve what I've got so far.19:50
daftykinsfluvvell: hmm, try a 15.04 ISO - it's not out yet of course but it'll have a newer kernel. presumably you didn't try installing intel drivers?19:50
AegNuddelHow do I move the on-screen keyboard?  I'm having to use it since my keyboard cord just went kaput, and there is no title bar with which to drag it.  I would also like to keep it on top, as the search screen covers it...19:50
laskoAegNuddel: Hold Alt19:51
daftykinshold alt and drag?19:51
fluvvelldaftykins, I did, but no help. But having the same result in 14.04 and 14.10....  I  read that the intel drivers are the same as ubuntu are offereing anyway?19:51
daftykinsfluvvell: yep, it annoys me when people start trying to install them as if it's Windows ;) just checking.19:51
daftykinsfluvvell: well, assuming the cable is good i have no better ideas.19:52
fluvvelldaftykins, lol sure - I get the same reaction19:52
daftykinshaving to set resolution manually is a bit of a bad sign19:52
laskofluvvell: Does it happen under other resolutions?19:52
fluvvelldaftykins, can I share my .xprofile for you to have a look at?19:52
daftykinsdoes that screen only have DVI?19:52
fluvvelllasko, no19:52
fluvvelldaftykins, yes19:52
daftykinsit won't do any good, not familiar with the file19:52
AegNuddelI, uh, have, no keyboard daffykins19:52
emsy2015k1l_: are you here? :)19:53
daftykinsAegNuddel: heh that's a fair point. ah well, no idea.19:53
fluvvelldaftykins, its a bunch of xrandr statements I think19:53
daftykinsmaybe your mode isn't quite what the display wants?19:53
daftykinsi'd dig into the /var/log/Xorg.0.log i think19:53

daftykinsSomeT: the people with the troubles should be the one asking, you can't provide us logs of their issues so there's no way to help.20:05
SomeTI know, but it just bugs me, haha20:06
SomeTanyway my question was a bit general20:06
daftykinsSomeT: yes, plus it also insinuates ubuntu is to blame and not vmware issues20:06

ikoniaRootKit: we only support official kernels here, so this isn't the right channel20:08
laskodaftykins: Well ok.20:08
RootKitikonia: whats wrong with unofficial kernel! I remove unity and and some other resource hungry shits! compiled kernel 4.0 with specific driver for my hardware.. using fluxbox ,no DEs.. But ubuntu still feels slow!20:10
ikoniaRootKit: tone down the language, there is no need for it20:10
ikoniaRootKit: if you've made all the changes you say you've made - it's no longer ubuntu20:11
ikoniaRootKit: so I suggest you support your own customized distro20:11
kryptonradoncan I upgrade 14.04 to 14.10 in place?20:11
k1l_RootKit: the problem is, we dont know if "stuff" doesnt work because its your custom kernels fault or if its a general ubuntu issue then20:11

daftykinswamicho: just "sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 nvidia-prime" i think20:34

daftykinswamicho: that'll be a guaranteed failure if you tried that :)20:36

Whitoremsy2015, It depends on your IRC client20:59
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)20:59
emsy2015whitor, I already found what I had to find, thank you :)20:59
WhitorI'm using 14.04 and love it20:59
Whitoremsy2015, great!21:00
ubottuLFS is Linux From Scratch (www.linuxfromscratch.org) - not to be confused with !LTS, which is the long term support release of Ubuntu (currently 8.04 (server), 10.04 and 12.04)21:00
emsy2015whitor, anyway, could you help me please?21:00
burkmatShouldn't the bot be updated re versioning on LFS / LTS?21:00
WhitorI don't know why anyone (especially a new user) would use an experimental version of Ubuntu. My guess is they don't really know that non LTS versions /are/ less supported..21:01
emsy2015Whitor, I removed all my kernels, so I tried to recover it after this thread. http://askubuntu.com/questions/28099/how-to-restore-a-system-after-accidentally-removing-all-kernels21:01
OerHeksburkmat, no, why is it confusing for you?21:02
emsy2015Whitor, when I did the last step (reboot) I had black screen with an error: missing models21:02
WhitorAlso... experienced users using Ubuntu in a professional production environment Shouldn't even consider using a non LTS version.21:02
daftykinsWhitor: i think new users impatiently rush through the download page on the site and don't read... because that was one of the first lessons i learnt21:04
Whitoremsy2015, sounds like a fun project!  I hope might consider re-installing on a different machine and moving your data ex-post-facto21:04
Whitordaftykins, yeah... I think this should be emphasized on the download page... Perhaps make people dig a little bit to get the latest (non LTS) versions... BTW I'm anxious to see whats in 16.04!21:05
bcowanboot to a livecd/usb and chroot21:05
emsy2015whitor: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10506460/21:05
daftykinswell, you'll be waiting a while. general chat however is in #ubuntu-offtopic :)21:05
burkmatOerHeks: Maybe I'm misreading it, but the bot seems to be saying the latest LTSs are 8.04, 10.04 and 12.04?21:05
daftykinscurrent LTS is 12.04.5 and 14.04.221:05
burkmatYeah. So...21:06
OerHeksburkmat, last part says different.21:06

k1l_emsy2015: for the chroot that doesnt matter21:11
jhutchinsdaftykins: ubottu is not as well trained as dpkg.21:11
MoPactherealfakemoot: Which video/graphics drivers are you using?21:11
emsy2015k1l_ when I rebooted I had a black screen telling that I miss some modules21:11
daftykinsjhutchins: i'll assume that's an attempt at humour 0o21:11
k1l_emsy2015: make sure you installed the kernel headers mathcing your kernel21:12
therealfakemootMoPac: Pretty sure it's the closed source nvidia one but I'm gonna have to look and double check.21:12
Whitoremsy2015, thanks for the  pastebin.  heh, I still might have been lazy and re-installed. With ubuntu, it's so freaking easy.   I grew up with slackware... I've done my share of kernel / module compiling... I remember when nearly every app had to be compiled21:12

emsy2015whitor: I'll lose all my filed wouldn't I?21:13
therealfakemootMoPac: "NVIDIA Binary driver - version 331.113 from nvidia-311-updates"21:13
k1l_emsy2015: boot that system or chroot into it from a live cd and make sure "linux-generic" is installed21:13
emsy2015jhutchins: trying  to recover my system21:14
Whitoremsy2015, only if you overwrite your HD ... use another HD21:14
k1l_emsy2015: but if you installed the video driver from some website then you need to reinstall it again21:14
Whitoremsy2015, then take your existing HD and put it into an external USB reader...  copy your home dir off and you are all set!21:14
bcowanso much easier just to chroot in and install kernel/headers21:15
=== mkv is now known as m4v
MoPactherealfakemoot: So, I haven't dealt with the video driver options for a while since I switched to a machine with integrated graphics. But the message you pasted basically indicates that steam is saying it needs some of the open-source software around in order to install. Usually, when I've seen a message like this, it's because the software I want to install needs a particular version21:16
therealfakemootMoPac: Interesting. I can try switching over21:16
MoPac... but some other existing software needs a different version, so the new software can't install21:16
nashhi guys I have a strange freeze after login. If I switch on tty1 I get a I/O error. Here is my smartmontools log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10506563/  what can I check more??21:16
emsy2015whitor, if I had another hd21:16
therealfakemootWe'll see if noveau can resolve this21:16
MoPacHowever, in the case of the video drivers, I wonder if having the option set to non-free might be telling the system not to install the free ones? I don't know exactly how much pull that option has in apt21:17
emsy2015k1l, haven't installed anything, only one kernel21:17
MoPacWell, one other thing though21:17
emsy2015with apt-get install linux-image-generic21:17
k1l_emsy2015: there is the issue. i told you several times to install the "linux-generic" since it installs the headers automatically21:17
MoPactherealfakemoot: I wonder if you can install those mesa packages without actually switching your preference from nvidia to nouveau?  Have you tried just doing "apt-get install [packagename that it said wasn't installf for steam]"?21:17
therealfakemootMoPac: yup21:18
Whitoremsy2015, good point..21:18
k1l_emsy2015: "linux-image..." is only the kernel, but not the headers. for building modules you need the headers21:18
therealfakemootMoPac: no dice. apt wouldn't install them21:18
MoPactherealfakemoot: What's the error you get when you try?21:18
therealfakemootMoPac: the lock is currently being held by the switch from closed source to novaeu drivers21:18
therealfakemootMoPac: I'll have to reproduce it in a second21:18
MoPactherealfakemoot: sure, no problem21:19
emsy2015Whitor, too big physical effort. I prefer fixing it with codes21:20
MoPactherealfakemoot: I'm probably overly skittish about switching back and forth between nvidia and nouveau drivers because doing that used to cause all kinds of problems on my old system [shudders]. Hopefully those are more rare now, though21:20
WhitorI thought everyone had piles of HD's kicking around...  Perks of working in IT21:21
therealfakemootMoPac: Yeah. I switched from Noveau to the closed source ones when a KSP update got all buggy. I saw a massive performance increase from it21:21
therealfakemootMoPac: and uh, the 'software center' threw an error about ack-grep while I was trying to change over. So it...didn't?21:21
MoPactherealfakemoot: okay, well, it might not be necessary to swtich over. Let's see what happend when you try just apt-get install-ing the two packages that held up your steam installation21:22
emsy2015k1l: so I have apt-get install linux-generic , right?21:22
emsy2015* I have to21:22
k1l_emsy2015: right.21:23
k1l_emsy2015: you could try if you can boot into the recovery in the grub.21:23
therealfakemootMoPac: So, as it turns out, I can install libgl1-mesa-dri OR libgl1-mesa-glx.21:23
therealfakemootwhich would require the remove of nvidia-updates-33121:23
emsy2015k1l, but I had some error... http://paste.ubuntu.com/10506647/21:24
k1l_emsy2015: what was the command?21:24
therealfakemootNot sure what the difference between dri and glx is, unfortunately21:25
MoPactherealfakemoot: Are you seeing the same thing that these people saw a while back, or is it different? - https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/280021:25
emsy2015k1l_ : apt-get install linux-generic21:25
k1l_in recovery?21:25
emsy2015k1l, in chroot21:25
k1l_emsy2015: then you did something wrong since the filesystem is read-only.21:26
therealfakemootMoPac: Similar, but I can't say for sure.21:26
k1l_emsy2015: so i bet you did again not setup the chroot properly and are still on the live-ubuntu system and not in the chroot21:26
MoPactherealfakemoot: I have a vague recollection about the ia32 libs business helping me out with something similar. Let me know if this helps you https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/2800#issuecomment-7404535221:26
k1l_emsy2015: seeing 3.13 kernel i am sure you are not in chroot.21:27

therealfakemootMoPac: Correct.21:29
MoPactherealfakemoot: And at the moment, do you have broken packages, or is it all working (just can't install steam)?21:29

MoPactherealfakemoot: okay, first let's try to just get back to working nvidia like you had before. manually apt-get remove the mesa package you were trying21:31
therealfakemootMoPac: That's the issue: it isn't installed and for one reason or another apt can't resolve the dependency21:32
therealfakemootI think.21:32
MoPactherealfakemoot: well, it might work to just reinstall nvidia-331-updates -- that may remove the mesa package and make it stop caring that the mesa package didn't install correctly21:33

MoPacnight_girl: Okay, so just to be sure, you have a lot of documents and settings and such on this computer, and you want to try to preserve everything, right? Even if it takes longer, you don't want to just back up your files and install the latest version -- am I reading that right?21:50
night_girlno you are wrong21:51
emsy2015k1l_: I did everything from the beginning what should I do now?21:51
k1l_night_girl: your ubuntu version is dead since years now. so better to install an actual 14.0421:51
night_girl;p sorry to say21:51
emsy2015where do I have to chroot in?21:51
MoPacnight_girl: ahhh no don't be sorry, that makes everything a lot easier.21:51
DasEifrew: I'm quite busy atm, many good tuts on te net and in the forum, simple question ask, it's got a record mode where it learns and so forms it's shield21:51

k1l_emsy2015: same thing you did all the days.21:51
night_girlI have backed up the 3 files I had in my ubuntu cause to be honest i wanst using it, but its time to take out the dust out from my ubuntu and stop using that piece of shit called windows21:52
MoPacnight_girl: The best way to do this from a version that old (anyone feel free to correct me here) is just to reinstall the whole OS.21:52
frewDasEi: I couldn't figure out how to phrase my question, but basically I need to allow ptrace in a docker container21:52

night_girldual boot21:52
k1l_night_girl: since we know you dont upgrade that often go with the 14.04 that got 5 years support time.21:52
k1l_night_girl: if you install 14.10 you need to upgrade every 6 months21:53
night_girloh seriously?21:53
MoPacnight_girl: Do you want to keep it dual boot, or do you want to have it just running Ubuntu at the end?21:53
therealfakemootDasEi: https://gist.github.com/therealfakemoot/51790dcb3ee1fd08432321:53
night_girldual boot21:53
night_girlcan u explain me more about that 14.10 vs 14.04 thingie?21:53
k1l_emsy2015: please re read the same discussion we had several times a day the last days. its still the same. and male sure you mount all right21:54
wamichodaftykins, i think i might be successfull now21:54
MoPacnight_girl: Re upgrading every six months, you'll get different opinions, but in my experience it's really not a big deal21:54
k1l_!lts | night_girl21:54
ubottunight_girl: LTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)21:54
night_girlnormally i wish tu upgrade but Im just an average user who never ends up finish her job, so has even less time to upgrade and solve problems in ubuntu! i cant even get enough to finish my own daily life work!21:54
night_girlif you understand me?21:54
k1l_MoPac: but you cant stay on 14.10. since its dead after 9 months after 14.10 release. and a user that is still on 10.10 is known to be not upgrade-happy.21:54
MoPack1l_: Read her situation, though. She didn't upgrade for so long because she actually wasn't using it as her primary OS; it was just sitting there and she was really using Windows.21:55
k1l_night_girl: so install the 14.04. then you can make one LTS_upgrade to 16.04 when that is released.21:55
k1l_MoPac: trust me. you will see that user again in 3 years, still on 14.10 and wonder why she didnt install 14.04 in the first place.21:56
wamichodaftykins, not really after rebooting everything went back to be the same21:56
DasEitherealfakemoot:: kill 1681 <result ? or do a lsof before, to see what's locking it, else try from safemode21:56
k1l_MoPac: that is a common thing in here. if they decide to go non-LTS the can upgrade. but to got LTS from 14.10 is not possible21:56
k1l_(besides upgrade every 6 months until 16.04)21:57
therealfakemootDasEi: oh my gosh, how did I miss that :|21:57
MoPacnight_girl: Whether you choose 14.04 or 14.10, I think the easiest thing to do is to install it over again rather than upgrade in place, but the thing to check on first is makign sure that the dual boot setup doesn't get too mangled21:57
night_girlwhen was 14.04 releseased, when was 14.10, when will 16.0421:57
night_girlwhat do i miss if i dont upgrade every 6 months?21:57
MoPacnight_girl: They refer to years and months: 14.04 = April 201421:58
k1l_night_girl: they are named after YEAR.MONTH21:58
centrichello all21:58
therealfakemootDasEi: There we go. Now I can remove --purge the bad package and I should be in the clear.21:58
k1l_night_girl: please read the wiki page about LTS the bot linked you. it explaines it21:58
night_girlall right but there wasnt no link in there21:58
k1l_night_girl: sorry, it didnt linkthe page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS21:59
DasEitherealfakemoot:: apt-get update && apt-get upgrade < tell if packages are still hold back after that line21:59
night_girlall right ill choose one version have to htink about it a bit21:59
therealfakemootDasEi: none held back21:59
daftykinsnight_girl: 14.04.2, nothing to think about :)22:00
night_girlcan I just install on top of my current ubuntu using my external hard drive etc?22:00
therealfakemootBut I'm still unable to install steam22:00
MoPactherealfakemoot: Now that you're in the clear, try installing ia32-libs22:00
therealfakemootDasEi: https://gist.github.com/therealfakemoot/51790dcb3ee1fd084323 still at square 122:00
MoPacnight_girl: The complication that you might run into is the dual boot thing22:00
k1l_night_girl: if you install 14.10 you cant use it longer than 9 months, since after that 9 month all updates are shut down. so you need to upgrade to 15.04 then.  etc etc. so not to run into the same issue like you know have with that 10.1022:01
zteamnight_girl, I you want a stable build you should choose, 14,04 only upgrade if you encounter any issues :-)22:01
therealfakemootMoPac: https://gist.github.com/therealfakemoot/51790dcb3ee1fd084323 see the second file in the gist for my attempt to install ia32-libs22:01
night_girlall right, i will isntall 14.04 this time to start slowly22:01
MoPactherealfakemoot: at the risk of recommending blind keystrokes... what happens if you copy the names of those replacement packages and then apt-get install [ctrl-shift-v] ?22:02
night_girlnow the question is where do i get that install? can i just save it on my external hard drive? and then do i just tell my boot to start from an external hard drive so that it lets me intsall the linux on a clean in top of my current one?22:03
DasEitherealfakemoot:: apt-get update && apt-get upgrade < no complaints ?22:03
NikeshIn Linux Mint xfce4-terminal I would paste into vim from outside the terminal using "+gP Now I am in Ubuntu Unity with GNOME terminal but "+gP doesn't work.. what can I do?22:03
therealfakemootDasEi: No complaints.22:03
therealfakemootMoPac: I just updated the gist22:03
=== thomas_ is now known as Guest74197
MoPacnight_girl: That's a fine decision, and you'll find that if you do want upgrades then it'll be pretty easy.22:03
k1l_night_girl: just make a live-usb and install that over tha old ubuntu install.22:03
fengshaun_how can I list the files installed by a package?22:03
therealfakemootMoPac: The first file contains my attempts to install the dependencies in question, and I was told that they're already installed22:03
k1l_night_girl: if you dont have a fancy setup the ubuntu installer should offer you a "install over old ubuntu" option22:04
zteamnight_girl, you should install it on usb-pendrive with UnetBootin22:04
SRKhello ..22:04
night_girlwtf is unetbootin jesus christ22:04
MoPactherealfakemoot: Sorry I wasn't clear -- I meant sudo apt-get install   lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.022:04
therealfakemootCan't I ask apt-get or aptitude "What are the broken packages I'm holding?"22:04
night_girlis there nothing flawless to do that22:04
DasEitherealfakemoot:: ah, missed aboce, hm k, again try apt-get update --fix-missing22:04
k1l_night_girl: its make you usb into a live-ubuntu usb22:04
k1l_night_girl: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows22:04
MoPacnight_girl: or you could burn a CD22:05
* centric is a centric22:05
night_girlmy cd player is dead as well i think22:05
therealfakemootMoPac: They're installing, no problem.22:05
fengshaun_night_girl: dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/myusb22:05
night_girland i dont ahve spare cs here22:05
zteamnight_girl, I was about to give you a link girl....22:05
fengshaun_night_girl: you can find /dev/myusb through fdisk -l22:05
therealfakemootMoPac: But it hasn't changed the steam installation.22:05
zteamnight_girl, here you go http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/22:05
night_girlall right im on my ubuntu now though22:05
k1l_night_girl: see my official link from ubuntu22:05
night_girlcan i install that thingie on ubuntu22:05
k1l_night_girl: yes. start the usb creator22:06
night_girlwheres the usb creator22:06
night_girlbtw i have a lot of important things on my usb22:06
night_girlis that fine?22:06
k1l_night_girl: they all get deleted22:06
MoPacnight_girl: k1l_: Maybe doing in-place upgrades is actually the way to go here, even if it takes a little while?22:06
night_girlwell thats not fine then22:06
MoPacnight_girl: k1l_: In-place upgrades would also have the added benefit of not messing with the dual-boot config, right?22:07
zteamnight_girl,  those will be deleted once you create your memory, so be sure to back them up first :-)22:07
therealfakemootDasEi: apt-get update --fix-missing just downloaded package info and had zero actions22:07
k1l_MoPac: form 10.10? that is possible but really really a long effort22:07
k1l_MoPac: dualboot is not an issue22:07
DasEitherealfakemoot: it can, dpkg is even more mighty, I'm done with my beside done work for now, prbly directly ask someone expereinced /w steam (their HP ?) repo needed ? idk https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGet/Howto22:07
MoPack1l_: "dualboot is not an issue" -- famous last words!22:08
k1l_MoPac: what is an issue then?22:08
DasEitherealfakemoot:: apt-get dist-upgrade maybe, I'm not firm /w repos,versions,backports whatever concerning steam22:09
therealfakemootIt's just confounding that I upgraded from 14.04 or whatever to 14.10 and all of a sudden I have to uninstall steam and skype and now I'm in dependency hell22:10
therealfakemootwhat happened?22:10
Bl3u2orphpstorm on ubuntu 14.04. im not sure where to save the files. which is best? save php files in home dir or in var/www? if in var/www, what permission should be set then? if in homedir, how do i set that up in a safe way?22:10
zteamtherealfakemoot, try sudo apt-get install -f22:10
lgshaw are u22:11
therealfakemootzteam: Nothing. "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.22:11
tc_Can anyone explaine me what are the consoles for here on ubuntu?22:11
MoPack1l_: There are a lot of people who have had problems setting up or maintaining dual-boot installations -- I don't want to stray off topic and debate various causes. I just wanted to flag it up as a potential concern22:11
emsy2015how to set up chroot properly? I' m just reading that thread and it says Chroot into the /mnt: sudo chroot /mnt22:11
k1l_lgs: please ubuntu support only in here.22:11
zteamtherealfakemoot, what about sudo apt-get check ?22:12
k1l_emsy2015: come on. you did that already 10 times22:12
therealfakemootzteam: also nothing22:12
emsy2015k1l_ but you said I didn' t do that properly22:12
MoPactherealfakemoot: Okay, so right now, having installed those three ia32-libs replacements, what happens when you try to install steam?22:12
emsy2015sudo chroot /mnt. I have to replace /mnt with media/ubuntu/e1784e0c-eacf-49ed-8873-c0ae2f1a638d shouldn' t I?22:13
jhutchinsemsy2015: You chroot into wherever you built the chroot.22:13
zteamtherealfakemoot, if that commands exist fine then your package system should be just fine22:13
k1l_emsy2015: yes. you did it not right this time. so you got an error anywhere and did not stop but carry on. so please start from the beginning and see if there is an error22:13
therealfakemootMoPac: https://gist.github.com/therealfakemoot/51790dcb3ee1fd08432322:13
MoPaczteam: the basic issue isn't his package system, it's a steam dependency probelm22:13
zteamtry to install something like gksu or aptitude22:13
emsy2015k1l_ I' ve mounted everything from the beginning22:14
night_girlso where i can that pendrive booter for linux as im under my 10.10 right now22:14
therealfakemootzteam: I've been trying to make it work with aptitude, but all its alternative resolutions are insane; they require uninstalling 400+ pacakges, stuff like pidgin and chromium and EVERYTHING, JUST to meet these Steam dependencies.22:14
k1l_emsy2015: use the same steps you did last time.22:14
therealfakemootzteam: It's friggin insane22:14
k1l_night_girl: you got a usb pendrive you can erase completly?22:14
therealfakemootOh yeah, aptitude wants to uninstall compiz if it's going to install steam.22:14
emsy2015so should I install linux-generic again, k1l?22:14
therealfakemootSo that sounds horrifically wrong22:14
night_girlyes i do22:14
k1l_emsy2015: after you setup the chroot completly22:15
zteamtherealfakemoot, sudo apt get install aptitude22:15
night_girla 16gb one22:15
therealfakemootzteam: it's already installed?22:15
k1l_night_girl: ok. download the ubuntu iso form ubuntu.com22:15
therealfakemootzteam: I tried letting aptitude intelligently resolve the issue, before I came here.22:15
zteamtherealfakemoot, then sudo apt get why-not skype22:15
emsy2015k1l_, just to make sure http://paste.ubuntu.com/10507184/22:16
night_girlyes but how do i create the ubuntu booter on a hard drive22:16
therealfakemootzteam: https://gist.github.com/therealfakemoot/51790dcb3ee1fd08432322:16
therealfakemootsee skype.txt22:16
MoPacnight_girl: program called unetbootin22:16
k1l_night_girl: we use a terminal command if you got the iso downloaded22:16
zteamnight_girl, unetbootin can help you with that22:16
k1l_night_girl: so if you got that just tell and we carry on.22:16
crushoverride:3 why not using dd22:17
k1l_emsy2015: ok, looks good so far. now chroot22:17
night_girlall right wait im downloadint thanks22:17
zteamtherealfakemoot, do you have any third-party repos in your sources.list ?22:18
laskojoi/window splith 1222:18
wamicho_daftykins, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/HybridGraphics22:19
zteamtherealfakemoot, have you run sudo apt-get update  to let it refresh the links ?22:19
therealfakemootzteam: google chrome22:19
therealfakemootzteam: the rest came with ubuntu22:19
daftykinswamicho_: why are you linking me to a page for an issue you're resolving? :)22:20
Hardtailwhen using virtualbox to run ubuntu, the lack of 3d acceleration would just be noticeable with unity and 3d programs correct?22:20
wamicho_daftykins, there is the answer for now did couple of reboots no issues22:20
emsy2015k1l_ the last time you said I did not chroot properly so I don' t want to make the same mistake again. How do you chroot?22:20
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot22:20
therealfakemootzteam: I've done that at least five hundreds times today22:20
daftykinswamicho_: that page was something i was considering linking myself, but all it does is say what i already said - to install nvidia-331 and nvidia-prime - what are you getting at?22:21
therealfakemootzteam: I've done it again and observed no change in my problem.22:21
v_SullyHey all, can someone tell if there is a log of error codes for start up? having some issues and I see what looks like error code  just before the splash screen on load22:21
cetexhm. i need to catch errors in upstart. for example, service dying for some reason.22:21
zteamtherealfakemoot, disable that repo then, and then run sudo apt-get update22:21
cetexand do some stuff when that happens22:21
cetexhow can i catch failed starts and run something then?22:21
k1l_emsy2015: the pastebin you showed was not running on the chroot but on the original live-usb system. so that chroot must have brought you an error22:21
MoPactherealfakemoot: Just to confirm, you can't install either of the steam dependencies without apt telling you it's going to remove nvidia-331 - is that correct?22:22
therealfakemootMoPac: No, actually. Those dependencies are already installed.22:22
MoPactherealfakemoot: hmm. So steam is telling you that it depends on a certain package, and -- letter for letter -- that package is already installed?22:23
wamicho_daftykins, ok did not know .. but apparently after following that it works now ..22:23
therealfakemootMoPac: https://gist.github.com/therealfakemoot/51790dcb3ee1fd084323 see steam.txt22:23
daftykinswamicho_: i'm very confused, as every time i said to run "sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 nvidia-prime"22:23
daftykinsanyway i've clocked out, shift's over ;)22:24
emsy2015k1l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10507260/22:24
k1l_emsy2015: sudo chroot /path/you/mounted/your/ubuntuinstall22:24
MoPactherealfakemoot: Ever used Synaptic to look at dependencies? I sometimes find it easier to navigate. for fine details Could you check on steam in there and see if it tells you exactly what versions of those mesa packages it's depending on?22:24
k1l_emsy2015: what command did you run to chroot?22:24
MoPactherealfakemoot: Then also see in Synaptic what precise versions you successfully installed22:25
therealfakemootMoPac: Meh. Worth a shot.22:25
emsy2015k1l: ubuntu@ubuntu:/media/ubuntu/e1784e0c-eacf-49ed-8873-c0ae2f1a638d$ sudo chroot /media/ubuntu/e1784e0c-eacf-49ed-8873-c0ae2f1a638d/22:25
k1l_emsy2015: and did that make a message (error) afterwards?22:25
MoPactherealfakemoot: At some point I feel like I'm going to say "XOrg-Edgers" (and your machine will probably explode at the mention)22:25
emsy2015k1l_ nope22:25
k1l_emsy2015: ok22:25
k1l_emsy2015: please do a "apt-cache policy linux-generic"22:26
therealfakemootMoPac: I have that in sources.list.d22:26
emsy2015k1l: while chroot?22:26
wamicho_daftykins, i was forgetting the nvidia-common22:26
k1l_emsy2015: yes, dont leave that chroot now until we have all insatlled we want to22:26
daftykinsnah you already had that the first time.22:26
MoPactherealfakemoot: ahhh, well, there's an interesting thing. Try removing Xorg-edgers22:27
emsy2015k1l_: did that, installed (none)22:27
MoPactherealfakemoot: then update and upgrade (which may well be downgrade).  If you're getting Xorg-edgers packages, they might actually be too *new* for Steam22:27
k1l_emsy2015: please pastebin22:27
cetexduh.. post-stop was the solution. :)22:27
k1l_emsy2015: details matter to see if everything is going well22:28
emsy2015k1l: sure, no problem. http://paste.ubuntu.com/10507305/22:28
therealfakemootMoPac: No dice. Same dependency conflict, and Synaptic came to the same conclusion that aptitude did: it'll have to remove a buttload of stuff like compiz, pidgin, and so on to satisfy the steam dependencies22:28
MoPactherealfakemoot: That's why I was suggesting looking at synaptic -- it might be that steam requires a version that's not just no earlier than X but also no later than Y22:28
wamicho_daftykins, did work then don't know either you saw the pastebins ... Anyway thanks a lot ..!!22:29
MoPactherealfakemoot: So you removed (and remove --purge)'d all the edgers Xorg things and then tried steam? (I was going to say that seemed really quick, but I guess if you're running nvidia drivers, you might not actually have had much Xorg stuff going)22:30
wamicho_i mean didn't work22:30
therealfakemootMoPac: Well, I update && upgrade'd22:30
therealfakemootMoPac: And nothing changed.22:30
k1l_emsy2015: so is your installed ubuntu a 14.04?22:30
MoPacIn synaptic, if you find one of the mesa packages that steam depends on, can you set the preferred source for it?22:31
emsy2015k1l_: ahaha, omg.. the version on cd is 14.04 but on hdd it' s 14.1022:31
k1l_emsy2015: are you sure about that?22:31
emsy2015k1l: absolutely!22:32
jjavaholicis it possible to get google chrcome browser to use the systemwide flash and not the pepperflash? would it just be as easy as removing pepperflash?22:32
therealfakemootMoPac: http://i.imgur.com/8lZ6Dlo.jpg22:32
k1l_emsy2015: because that is a trusty system you are actually in. so eihter you have a 14.04 installed or the chroot is wrong again22:32
therealfakemootMoPac: and the "Force Version" options include *one* version of the package.22:33
emsy2015k1l_:the ubuntu I installed on cd was 14.0422:33
k1l_emsy2015: please pastebin a "mount"22:35
MoPactherealfakemoot: yep, looks like you do have the plain version of them... looked like a good lead22:35
night_girlso now i have a 16Gb pendirve with some data that can be overwritten and i have the iso of ubuntu22:35
MoPactherealfakemoot: So was there any minimum version info for steam in synaptic?22:36
therealfakemootMoPac: Maybe now's a good time to finally ditch Ubuntu22:36
k1l_night_girl: ok, so please put the usb in and then show the last 20 lines of "dmesg" in a pastebin please22:36
k1l_!paste | night_girl22:36

therealfakemootMoPac: Yes. libc6 and libstdc++6 are the only minimum versions specified.22:36
k1l_emsy2015: "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" please too22:37
MoPactherealfakemoot: One thing -- is steam now offered in 64 as well as 32?22:37
therealfakemootMoPac: Probably not.22:37
therealfakemootMoPac: I honestly don't know. I've enver seen the option22:37
=== mkv is now known as m4v
MoPactherealfakemoot: some of this may boil down to differences in 32 vs 64-bit files -- your OS is 64, right?22:38
k1l_emsy2015: so its not a 14.10 at all that you got installed there22:38
MoPactherealfakemoot: what happens when you try to install steam-launcher ?22:39
therealfakemootMoPac: no such package22:39
emsy2015k1l: it looks like 13.0422:39
k1l_emsy2015: so "apt-get install linux-generic"22:39
night_girlthere you go: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10507497/22:39
k1l_emsy2015: does that produce an error again?22:39
emsy2015the same error, k1l22:40
emsy2015k1l,E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.22:40
k1l_night_girl: is it still in?22:40
k1l_emsy2015: apt-get update22:40
night_girlit is in yes22:40
k1l_emsy2015: after that: "dpkg --configure -a"22:40
emsy2015k1l, after update the same error22:41
emsy2015should I still go with dpkg...22:41
k1l_night_girl: ok, you seem to have connected and disconnected several things there so i want to be sure not to erase the wrong one. so please show a "sudo fdisk -l" small L at the end in a pastebin please22:41
MoPacDo you have this repo in your sources? - http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ ( therealfakemoot: )22:41
k1l_emsy2015: yes22:41
emsy2015k1l_: done succesfuly22:42
k1l_emsy2015: after that "apt-get update"22:42
emsy2015k1l_ done22:43
k1l_emsy2015: then "apt-get install linux-generic"22:43
night_girlhere you go: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10507543/22:43
night_girlso here you can see how i have my disk in general22:43
night_girli just wanna override my current ubuntu as discussed22:44
emsy2015k1l: E: Can not write log (Is /dev/pts mounted?) - openpty (2: No such file or directory)22:44
MoPactherealfakemoot: So even though "Precise" is the only distribution listed in that repp, it does offer 32 and 64-bit versions from there, and I'm pretty sure that's what I run22:44
emsy2015k1l: but still unpacking something...22:44
k1l_emsy2015: show all the output with commands in a pastebin when its done22:45
brownfauxso is there an ubuntu distro that doesn't have a desktop env or one prebuilt with i3?22:45
Tenebrisserver version?22:45
brownfauxah yes22:45
therealfakemootMoPac: probably not22:46
emsy2015k1l_: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10507558/22:46
k1l_night_girl: now we use the terminal tool DD to install the iso onto the usb: "sudo dd bs=1M if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdc"22:46
jhutchinsnight_girl: Easy way is sudo dd if=<isofile> of=/dev/sdc22:46
k1l_night_girl: if you are in the same folder as the ubuntu.........iso then just write "if=ubuntu.....iso" for that if=/path/to/iso thing22:47
k1l_emsy2015: should be done22:48
therealfakemootMoPac: and adding that source didn't change anything. same dependency problem22:48
k1l_emsy2015: not try to run a "update-grub"22:49
emsy2015k1l: is it time to unmount everything and reboot?22:49

nashhi guys I have a freeze after login problem. If I switch to tty1 I see many I/O errors on a block. This is my smartmontools log: Here is my smartmontools log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10506563/22:50
MoPactherealfakemoot: Well, at this point I guess I would say that a forum post here might be a decent bet. The thread is quite active, including someone wanting to look at logs just a few days ago https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/280022:50
k1l_emsy2015: now "exit" to exit chroot. reboot. and test22:51

k1l_night_girl: now type "sync" and wait until its done22:52
k1l_now you can reboot and boot from that usb and get the live ubuntu going to install the ubuntu from there22:53
night_girldoes the pendrive needs to be penetrated in the ubs while rebooting?22:54

night_girlwhat is the option so that it boots from the usb drive when restarting?22:54
k1l_night_girl: just let the usb stick put in and see if that works.22:54
night_girlall right...see you in half an hour when i have completely installed this thing22:55
night_girlhalf an hour is a good estimate?22:55
k1l_night_girl: you could join irc from the live ubuntu if you need assistance.22:56
night_girlthx see u ill report back and ill carry riding forward now with the installation22:56
therealfakemootMobGod: Yeah, seems like the only tack left to take22:59

umbra_purushey. Is there a version of Ubuntu for Intel? 'cause the iso i've download is for amd64 and i'm using on a laptop with an i7 Processor23:36
ikoniaamd64 is for intel23:36
ikoniait's just the 64bit version23:36
umbra_purusoh i thought it was for amd arquitecture23:38
ikoniasafe for intel23:39
k1l_the patent for 64bit is from amd but intel uses the same technologie.23:39
Bashing-omumbra_purus: I think I read where AMD holds the patent .23:39
compdocamd64 is awesome23:40
umbra_purusoh so I should have no problem coding in linux with intel processors right?23:41
musclesnope - no problems23:41
umbra_purusokay thanks23:41
WilliamDotSI<Bashing-om> umbra_purus: I think I read where AMD holds the patent .23:41
WilliamDotSIsort of23:41
WilliamDotSIit was a deal between AMD and Intel to exchange some technology23:42

wldcordeiroI'm needing to increase the swap space on a vm I'm running (Ubuntu 14.04) how could I go about that?23:45
daftykinsadd a second virtual disk and make that the swap23:46
wldcordeirodaftykins: that's probably easier in vbox rather than vagrant23:46
daftykinshow do i know what you're running?23:47
wldcordeiroIs there a command that tells Ubuntu that the other virtual disk is the swap? Otherwise it would just be an additional drive.23:48
daftykinsyou partition it, make it swap, turn swap on...23:48
ikoniawldcordeiro: you have to make a swap partition on the disk23:48
musclesyou would specify it in /etc/fstab23:48
ikoniayou don't have to set it in /etc/fstab23:48
wldcordeiroikonia: very vague, what would be the command to partition?23:50
ikoniawldcordeiro: any partition tool you like, marke the partition as swap, mkswap, then swapon23:50
Nimbus_Hello All, I have a thermaltake blac x but Ubuntu will not recognize it23:52

Nimbus_Thermaltake Blac X is the brand/Model23:53
daftykinsunplug it23:53
BergcubeI just installed Hexchat. I can connect to Freenode without problems, but not Undernet. Trying to connect to any undernet server I get an error saying "no ident response". I've left everything default except my nick, username, real name, etc.23:53
bekksAnd did you put a HDD into it? :)23:53
daftykinsopen a terminal, run "dmesg | tail" then plug it back in and run it again23:53
Nimbus_yes bekks23:54
daftykinsBergcube: that's not a bad error, that's just common and informational.23:54
daftykinsgive it more time to connect perhaps23:54

mntmsehi guys, just wondering if anyone can help me with a partioning issue i'm having?  https://askubuntu.com/questions/592030/please-help-me-rescue-my-installation-on-macbook-pro23:55
Nimbus_it's been awhile now23:55
daftykinscan you share a pastebin of some actual connection logs? guessing isn't so effective23:56
daftykins!ask | mntmse23:56
ubottumntmse: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience23:56
mntmsethanks ubottu23:56
Bergcubedaftykins, Sure.  Hang on.23:56
daftykinsmntmse: no, i typed that to make the bot tell you that message. now you can ask your question :)23:56

Bergcubedaftykins, http://paste.ubuntu.com/10508227/23:57
mntmseI have a Macbook Pro (Mid 2012) 2.3 Intel Core i7 with 8GB of RAM. I'm aiming to dual boot Ubuntu with OS X and I'm nearly there. The version of Ubuntu is 13.04 as it's compatible with my computer.  I installed Ubuntu and I'm not getting the "missing operating system" error when I try to boot into it.  I'm using rEFInd as my boot manager. Here is my hard drive layout:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/10508238/23:58
Bergcubedaftykins, It's like that.  On and on.23:58
daftykinsBergcube: my bet would be wrong domains or port numbers, check their website and try manually creating a server with correct config23:58
mntmseA few things I"m unsure of. I don't know why disk0s4 is called Microsoft Basic Data...... and i'm sure that swap partion is messed up too23:58
daftykinsmntmse: no you can't use 13.04, it's EOL23:58
daftykins!13.04 | mntmse23:58
ubottumntmse: Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) was the 18th release of Ubuntu. Support ended on January 27, 2014. See !eol, !upgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/raring23:58
daftykinsdead with many security flaws, now23:59
mntmsedaftykins:  i used that because of my computer version23:59
mntmseubuntu recommended it23:59
mntmseso i should use the more latest one?23:59
ikoniamntmse: 14.04 is supported just fine23:59
ikoniaas is 14.1023:59
mntmseok thanks23:59
ikonia13.04 is EOL so it is unmaintained23:59
mntmsehow do you think I should fix the partition issues?23:59
Bergcubedaftykins, Thanks a lot!  Will do.  I'll ask again if it doesn't help.23:59
ikoniainstall a current version23:59
daftykinsmntmse: perhaps you're referring to the mactel wiki page, which is not saying 'install and old version' at all :)23:59
ikoniaand I don't see what the "partition problem" is23:59
