daniel_I'm in the middle of an ubuntu installation and it's downloading packages... but the ethernet line it's connected to is painfully slow. If I disconnect the line and replace it with a better one, will I screw everything up?00:58
hasanverdeP: well. I have a flac file here with following stats (according to sox (swiss army of sound processing)): encoding flac, samplerate: 96000Hz, channels 2@24bits. but also "Bit Rate: 2.36M"00:59
hasanso which is which?00:59
area51pilotdaniel_: it wont hurt, you may just need to run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt get upgrade again if your not quick enough in the switc01:01
hkrrsxwhomp: Also, read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/hfsplus because it directly talks about your issue01:01
verdePsample rate is the freq you sample at, you convert analog to digital...taking a data point at that 96kHz, the bit depth is how many gradiations you have to quantify that signal into bits01:01
daniel_area51pilot, thanks01:02
hasanverdeP: I know.01:02
kk0710guys I am having a hell of a time with 14.04 lts on my new laptop.  My wireless keeps cutting out and firefox is giving me a hard time.  I came in before and had a fix by updating the third party stuff needed for the right codex' for firefox and updated the wireless driver but the problems are back.  I am only having the problem with ubuntu and am realllly hoping I don't have to switch back to windows but I am out of ideas here01:02
verdePthe bit rate is the overall amount of digital data being transmitted01:02
hasannow with these stats I would have: 96000 * 2 (channels) * 24 (bits) = 4608000 or 4.608kpbs01:02
area51pilotdaniel_: no problem I do it on occasion switching from Ethernet to wireless01:02
hasanwhat exactly is 2.36M Bit Rate then?01:03
whomphkrrsx: that looks great except that i can't access the mac os itself01:04

whomphkrrsx: same thing01:20
hasanverdeP: I did some calculations: if this FLAC file is really at 96000@24 stereo. this would be 4608000 (or 4,60Mbps). still not 2.36M :/01:20
hkrrsxwhomp: any particular reason that you're not accessing the drive via the Mac OS instead of a Ubuntu live environment ?01:21

kk0710 the sys log from one disconnect to the next   http://paste.ubuntu.com/10704672/01:51
SonikkuAmerica!ot | shalker, head over here01:51
ubottushalker, head over here: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!01:51
daftykinskk0710: one part of the log said the AP wasn't there, sounds like some configuration could be at least down to your router / AP. what channel is it using?01:51
bazhangwhat 3rd party stuff and from where kk071001:51
kk0710daftykins, forgive me for being obtuse, are you asking me what channel is my router broadcasting on?01:52
daftykinstypically a number from 1-11, depending on whereabouts in the world you are01:52
kk0710bazhang, I didnt check install third party software during install, it was for the codex' and what not, it quazi fixed my flash player problems01:54
kk0710daftykins, sorry I dc'd again I will check.  Though I am curious as to why it would only matter on my linux machine?01:54
bazhangkk0710, something other than ubuntu-restricted-extras ?01:54
kk0710bazhang, I don't believe so01:55
kk0710bazhang, but this problem existed before that moment so that is not the problem, in fact it had appeared it had fixed the problem at least for a while01:55
kk0710daftykins, bare with me here I'm having problems finding the channel I am broadcasting on01:56
daftykinsno worries, feel free to give me the executive summary01:57
kk0710god damn it, its like the more I try to fix it the more often I dc01:57
kk0710let's try this again01:57
daftykinsis your router dual-band?01:58
kk0710man I am so rusty, I think so.  20 or 40MHz means dual band right?01:58
cmchange to channel 1301:59
kk0710those are the only settings pertaining to channels that I am finding under wireless01:59
kk0710this is a linksys wrt120n01:59
daftykinsno 2.4GHz and 5GHz are the two bands of dual band01:59
kk0710mind you I have several other devices on my network and only my ubuntu laptop is the problem01:59
daftykinscm: you can't just throw that out there without knowing where someone is in the world.01:59
daftykinskk0710: also what wireless adapter is this?02:00
kk0710daftykins, don't worry I tend not to listen to such things, I don't do anything Unless I trust the person or understand the request lol02:00
daftykinsheh good stuff02:00
kk071008:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188EE Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)02:00
bazhang /join02:01
cmOk where in the world are you?02:01
daftykinshrmm realtek02:01
Warfront1i love it02:01
Warfront1i love it02:01
kk0710daftykins, this was working for serveral days no problem then just went back to before,02:01
Warfront1sudo apt-get install xrdp02:01
Warfront1saved me life02:01
Warfront1xde is working with that02:02
cmIt says he is in NY...Change to channel 13 :)02:04
daftykinsno. no. no.02:04
kk0710cm if you are going to give advice read what the person in need is saying02:04
cmPBS in NY :)02:04
daftykinscm: stop, please.02:04
kk0710I don't even see an option to change the channel and once again, ONLY on this laptop am I having the problem and only when ubuntu is running02:04
cmThe option is on the router.02:05
daftykinsyeah lets just ignore this guy.02:05
kk0710daftykins, no worries I am :)02:05
daftykinskk0710: mmm, sometimes drivers for bad adapters work better by disabling the 5GHz portion... other times it's better to just factory reset a router and use a standard channel like 1, 6 and 11 on the 2.4GHz side for testing (depending on what your neighbours are using)02:06
kk0710ugh I am about to give up i cant stay on long enough to do anything, either plugin conf locks up my browser or I lose my connection02:07
cmIgnore is ok. :( When your done with all that please try 13. If you feel the need to thank me later.  Don't worry it's ok.02:08
daftykinskk0710: use a wired connection whilst resolving?02:08
kk0710id use windows before I went through that hassle02:08
daftykinscm: clearly you're the attention seeking kind, however what you're saying is 100% wrong :) sorry but you don't know what you're talking about02:09
kk0710daftykins, it's quite alright I can tell he clearly doesn't02:09
daftykinsi'm afraid i'm the type to like to make it known :>02:09
cmIts true I don't but give it a shot anyway just fo amusement02:09
kk0710daftykins, again thouh i see NO options on my router to change the channel02:10
daftykinscm: no, and you don't belong here just throwing guesses around02:10
daftykinskk0710: ah well. if you like the laptop maybe consider swapping out the card02:10
kk0710no way02:11
kk0710like I said this was working fine for days02:11
kk0710something else is the02:11
kk0710at this pint I think ubuntu has lost me02:11
SonikkuAmericaAt this quart Ubuntu shall get me back.02:11
SonikkuAmerica(Sorry, had to.)02:12
daftykinsSonikkuAmerica: that was terrible02:12
SonikkuAmerica(I know, I know. Back to support.)02:12
kk0710the problem goes beyond the adapter, as any browser I use tends to max out cpu usage and lock me up too02:12
cmWo said channel 13 was a guess :(02:12
kk0710ok daftykins I think I found the channel option it is currently set to auto02:13
kk0710and as I assume you already were aware of channel 13 isn't even an option lol02:13
cmwait are you going to implement my on't know wht I am talkign about option?02:14
kk0710cm you DON"T know what you are talking abou tas there is no channel 13, just stop responding to me.02:14
kk0710daftykins, to be able to change the channel I have to turn off auto channel width and pick either 20MHz or 40Mhz?02:14
* SonikkuAmerica shrinks cm to mm02:14
cmJust pick another channel is the point mn02:14
BlackDalekif I want to delete all files recursively in a folder which are less than a specified file size, is there an option I can use in the rm command?02:15
daftykinsBlackDalek: it'd be better to use a combination of 'find' and -exec02:16
wiaki prefer nm02:16
kk0710daftykins,  you think 20Mhz channel 6 is a good place to start?02:17
daftykinskk0710: just fiddle.02:17
daftykinslikely the realtek driver is just pants though i'd reckon02:17
kk0710ahh good ol linux and just fiddle02:17
daftykinslook into disabling 5GHz on it if you get nowhere02:17
kk0710I had realtek drivers before02:17
kk07105ghz doesn't appear to be an option02:17
kk0710all channels are in the 2.4 range02:18
daftykinswell it's a realtek device so just whichever driver is in use is what i mean really02:18
daftykinsyeah but your device speaks otherwise02:18
penalvchI'm trying to get x11vnc work via systemd. However, every time I attempt a connection with Remmina, I get "Authentication failed". However, if I run the exact same x11vnc command in the service file at a terminal, Remmina successfully connects. Configuration information -> http://pastebin.com/UfswCG6g Anyone got an idea WTF is preventing a successful connection?02:18
kk0710well I updated the driver from an ubuntu page I found and it worked for days then just stopped02:18
daftykinskk0710: see lines 43-48 in your log from earlier02:18
BlackDalekdaftykins could you help me with syntax of using find and -exec to delete files less than certain size?02:19
daftykinskk0710: maybe you installed a kernel update and have to run through that guide again02:19
kk0710unfortunately I closed the paste.ubuntu so I don't have it02:19
bazhangkk0710, have you tried installing 'linux-firmware'02:19
daftykinsBlackDalek: nah i'm too new with it myself and am about to watch a film.02:19
kk0710daftykins, that is what I was wondering, did I perhaps overwrite the driver with an update?02:19
daftykinsBlackDalek: #bash will probably help you02:19
BlackDalekdaftykins ok. no worries02:19
kk0710yah I have no idea what I am reading on that log hence why I wanted people who did to read it lol02:20
kk0710bazhang, I do not believe so02:20
bazhang File rtl8188 found in linux-firmware02:20
che2channel #bitcoin02:20
kk0710bazhang, sudo apt-get linux-firmware?02:21
daftykinskk0710: lines 43 to 48 are pretty self explanatory to me. 47 and 48 refer to two channels in the 5GHz range, thus the driver probably supports them02:21

kk0710daftykins, thanks for trying, sorry if I came off irritable but I have been dealing with this for a while and it is highly annoying02:26
kk0710and I really don't want to have to go back to using windows full time.02:26
daftykinsno problem. Linux certified wireless models are always best when you can02:26
daftykinsyou can still totally swap that card02:27
kk0710id rather not have to spend MORE money on a laptop I just bought but also the card isn't the route of my other problem02:27
kk0710no matter what browser I use, firefox, chrome etc, it will arbitrarily max out cpu usage02:27
kk0710I am constantly having to do a top and kill *02:27
daftykinssounds like a wonky install to me02:28
penalvchkk0710, I'm coming in a little late to your problem. Have you filed a bug report on Launchpad about the WiFi issue?02:28
cmIf it's an current model HP laptop he can't swap that card. Sorry to interject. I know I don't know what i m talking about but02:28
kk0710penalvch, no I have not but mostly because the problem had been solved after I updated the driver02:29
kk0710it only came back the other day02:29
excelsioraso I just downloaded the bash source with apt-get source bash, where can I read it now?02:29
penalvchkk0710, please file a new report via a terminal, subscribe me to it, and we can take it from there: ubuntu-bug linux02:30

gshmuI miss my time at Ubuntu 14.04 amd64. https://clbin.com/iDr1IM.png02:39
tropicodoes anyone know if there is a difference between ubuntu 14.04 server edition vs 14.04 desktop edition, other than the packages that come included on the CDs?02:40
Zach443tropico, well for one the server edition is a server, and the desktop edition is meant to be used on your PC02:41
tropicoZach443: right, but what are the actual differences? they have the same repo, etc02:41
kk0710penalvch, sorry I dc'ed again and this time I had to reboot to connect02:41
Zach443Server version is command line only I believe02:41
tropicoi'm creating a VM image for a class I am TAing and i am trying to cut down on image size, looking to create a minimal image and it looks like server edition might be best02:42
tropicoi just need to know if there are any differences between the two other than the installation CDs which obviously come with a different default set of packages02:42
Zach443I think that might depend on what you actually need to do02:42
Zach443If you need to use it as  PC, get the desktop edition02:43
tropicodefault desktop install is quite bloated, VM image comes to 1.4 GBish02:43
tropicowas hoping to distribute an image < 500 MB. i know it's possible02:44

myraftHELP ME !03:20
benjamin__ok, using your secondary computer, download 14.04.2 again, during installation, it'll ask you if you want to reinstall03:21
myraftthe issue is, I can't get it boot from anything other than HDD - no USB, no CD03:22

myraftthis is really weird, was able to change the boot order in the bios03:23

myrafti will be glad to do it again, if there is alternate path to choose.03:25

benjamin__There should be a reinstall button03:26

AfterDarknessi have just upgraded my gpu from amd to nvida. I was using open source driver04:38
AfterDarknesslooking at the software and updates it shows nothing under drivers04:39
AfterDarknessany ideas how to install nvida drivers and remove the open source drivers?04:39
daftykinswhat card?04:39
AfterDarknessgtx 98004:40
AfterDarknessi heard it is not supported04:40
daftykinsAfterDarkness: add the xorg-edgers PPA and then install the packages nvidia-346 and nvidia-settings04:40
AfterDarknesswas that true?04:40
Bashing-omAfterDarkness: So new of a Nvidia card there are no drivers available in the repo ??04:40
daftykinscorrect (:04:40
AfterDarknessBashing-om, yes i will be following daftykins04:40
Bashing-omAfterDarkness: daftykins :)04:41
AfterDarknessdaftykins, i would prefer the nvida proprietary drivers04:41
daftykinsAfterDarkness: ... that's what they are.04:42
AfterDarknessalright i just thought if the package had nvida name doesnt necessary mean it is from nvida04:44
daftykinsopen source drivers don't work with the maxwell series until kernel 3.19 so i hear04:44
AfterDarknessI see04:45
AfterDarknesswill i be able to upgrade my kernal with these nvidia drivers?04:45
AfterDarknessi have 3.1704:45
daftykinsAfterDarkness: what are you running?04:46

=== mike_ is now known as Guest89171

daftykinsnazmulislam: can you ask the question in full please? what registration code?04:48
daftykinsAfterDarkness: yeah that's unwise.04:48
AfterDarknessdaftykins, I see04:49
AfterDarknessbut man i had too. when i was copying larg files my system was unusable ..04:49
daftykinsalso, when you replace the kernel it ceases to be ubuntu04:49
AfterDarknesseven the mouse freezes it was annoying that issue had to be resolved or i just cant live with my pc04:49
daftykinsok i don't wanna hear the life story (:04:49
AfterDarknesswow that was mean xD04:49
AfterDarknessi didnt expect that one comming xD04:50
daftykinsso you have your course of action... 1) revert to an official kernel 2) add xorg-edgers PPA 3) install nvidia-346 and nvidia-settings04:50
AfterDarknessdaftykins, i already installed the drivers and about to reboot04:51
AfterDarknessin case it wont work04:51
AfterDarknessill remove the drivers and reboot again04:51

Guest46745I'm sorry05:24
fengshaundaftykins: you don't need to know what it is, the url designation tells you where it's running: on port 808005:24
daftykinsfengshaun: well, that's your interpretation of what the person is asking... i don't think so.05:24
daftykinsand yes, i understand what a socket is.05:25
fengshaunthat has nothing to do with sockets05:26
daftykinsan IP and port can be called a socket05:27
daftykinsbut suffice to say, you are attempting to explain where explanation isn't needed :)05:27

frdmnI plan to do kernel updates on a productional server tomorrow and just did a "aptitude update && aptitude upgrade" to check which packages are going to be updated tomorrow, but it complains that It cant resolv the dependencies and I should try with "--full-resolver" switch.07:31
frdmnif I do that, it works without any issues and doesnt show up any more information regarding the error.07:32

bloop1there it went again07:37
frdmndaftykins: http://paste.frd.mn/ejulokexur07:38

hsegHi. I'm trying to find out which fonts gvim is using. How do I do this?07:51
somsiphseg: Edit menu, Select Font item07:52
daftykinsfrdmn: give "man aptitude" a read on what that switch is actually doing, i'm not familiar with it really. i always apt-get dist-upgrade my servers07:54
frdmndaftykins: I did, don't really understand how it is relevant to my server :/07:54
frdmnwell, anyway... whats the difference between upgrade via "upgrade" and via "dist-upgrade"?07:54
hsegsomsip: But that only gives one font - Ubuntu Monospace. And I know that that fone doesn't have a glyph for, say, U+298507:55
somsiphseg: that's the font gvim is using. What is your real question?07:55
hsegI see that gvim here is capable of rendering U+2985. I'd like to find out which font it's using to do so, so that I'll be able to download it at home and use it there.07:56
somsiphseg: here?07:56
hsegAt uni07:56
hsegI've checked, and Ubuntu Monospace lacks a glyph for U+2985 for example. But somehow, gvim is capable of rendering it. So it is using some other font to render it.07:57
daftykinsfrdmn: like i said, all packages + kernel too07:57
frdmndaftykins: well, I update all my packages and kernel as well, just with out the "dist-" part :D07:58
frdmnthats why I asked07:58
hsegOr the version of Ubuntu Monospace packaged with 14.04 is more capable than the one available at http://font.ubuntu.com/07:58
mauro_Hello! I am booting my system from a SD card. I am trying to mount Ubuntu Core 14.10 armhf on a 3.19.2 Mainline Kernel for an ARMv7 architecture (Cubietruck board). I am Using UBoot 2015.1 stable version and this is my boot.cmd http://pastebin.com/7R37Qkpk. When the booting process the kernel gets loaded correctly, but when the RootFS gets initialized, the process stops at “init: ureadahead main process (46) terminated with status 5” http://tny.cz/e516b6307:59
mauro_0. I have checked the “/var/lib/ureadahead/” folder, and it’s empty. If I am not wrong the process should configure itself and create a “pack” file in the folder, but nothing happens in my case. What should I do?07:59
geirhahseg: yeah looks like it. In Ubuntu 12.04, it doesn't render, but it does in 14.0408:01
daftykinsfrdmn: mmm no08:02
hsegMost of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematical_operators_and_symbols_in_Unicode renders on ubuntu 14.0408:02
frdmndaftykins: what do you mean?08:02
hseg(In monospaced)08:02
hsegBut if I try to download the font from font.ubuntu.com, it doesn't render. At least, not under windows.08:02
daftykinsfrdmn: if we're comparing apt-get upgrade to apt-get dist-upgrade, then they don't do the same thing specifically no - sometimes packages can be held back like in your pastes08:02
frdmnhmm, well I never used dist-upgrade08:03
geirhahseg: I also tried it at font.ubuntu.com. It renders when looking at it from a browser in 14.04, but not 12.0408:03
hseggeirha: It also rendered for me there under windows w/o the font installed (i.e. using webfonts), but when I downloaded the font, it was incapable of rendering stuff that the webpage showed it could.08:05

hsegAccording to the test site, yes. According to every single way I've parsed the ttf, no.09:07

hsegsvetlana: Turns out that U+2985 *did* display as the right-hand version in your screenshot http://i.imgur.com/AvXFCNx.png It's just that it got cut off, looking like the left-hand version.09:19

ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/10:15
djam90somsip, thank you my friend10:15
somsipdjam90: FYI http://askubuntu.com/questions/81585/what-is-dist-upgrade-and-why-does-it-upgrade-more-than-upgrade10:16
djam90interesting, thank you somsip !!10:17
djam90I was on 14.04, I am guessing it is going to upgrade me to 14.1010:18
djam90or is that wrong10:18
somsipdjam90: no, that would be do-release-upgrade (from memory)10:18
somsipdjam90: and that wouldn't do it automatically as you on on a LTS version10:18
djam90i see. got it10:18
djam90Is it worth the upgrade to 14.10?10:19
djam90Its just a VM that I use for linuxy stuff10:19
somsipdjam90: common opinion suggests no, unless you really need it for hardware support10:19
djam90great I will leave it as-is then10:19

MrEikonoI wanted to call it that, for Windows + Ubuntu (yup now you see my idea) but the project on SF and stuff seems inactive.14:44
MrEikonoit's not even on that list that MonkeyDust sent me14:45
lotuspsychjeMrEikono: be carefull to switch 2 Os togheter without knowing what you do, check what happened to linspire14:47
voozeAnyone know why grub is loading slow? It looks like an image being loaded on a really slow connection (step by step loading) Is that GPU related or could it be the 3200x1800 screens fault?14:48
lotuspsychjevooze: what kind of gpu and ubuntu version?14:49
KnightsOfNifor some reason grep does nothing for me, i type: grep "PHP_OS" /var/www - and it just goes back to prompt without any message14:50
KnightsOfNianything wrong with the syntax?14:51
voozelotuspsychje, its 15.04 (but had the same problem with 14.04 and 14.10) and its Intel HD 4600 + Nvidia 750m14:53
lotuspsychjevooze: that card does it have optimus technology?14:53
voozelotuspsychje, jep14:53

lotuspsychjevooze: did you install nvidia-prime?14:53
voozeyes :)14:53
MrEikonooh yeah, that thing lotuspsychje14:54
MrEikonosorry I took so long14:54
lotuspsychjevooze: not sure then, maybe try 14.04.2 with internet/updates during setup and nvidia-prime14:54
MrEikonoI'm not really combining them though, I want it to be basically Ubuntu but with a windows _feel_.14:54
MrEikonolike Ubuntu but with the start menu for ex.14:55
MrEikono(is that a fork or a remaster)14:55
voozealso it happens with noveau and nvidia driver. But since its in grub, it really cant use drivers right?14:55
MonkeyDustMrEikono  MATE has that option14:55
lotuspsychjeMrEikono: lol, why not setup just a windows theme then?14:55
voozelotuspsychje, i did begin with 14.04.2 with internet updates, same result :/14:55
MrEikonolotuspsycheje how14:55
lotuspsychjevooze: i would try to remove your drivers, and install only nvidia-prime14:55
MrEikonoMonkeyDust what's MATE14:56

MonkeyDustMrEikono  MATE is a DE like unity or lxde14:56
MrEikonoah okay14:56
voozelotuspsychje, also intel driver?14:56
lotuspsychjevooze: no intel drivers ok, just try a remove of nvidia card drivers, or switch to another from your list14:57
lotuspsychjevooze: in this state you can also try grub recoverymode/ fix broken packages14:57
lotuspsychjeMrEikono: there is also playonlinux to run software/games on ubuntu, that your gf might feel comfortable with..14:58

MrEikono(playonlinux tho thanks *wink*)14:59
voozelotuspsychje, don't really think switching drivers will help, since its been like that on 14.04 (with old nvidia driver) and 14.10 (with a bit newer) and 15.04 (with quite new)14:59

travnewmatichi jul200018:33
jul2000Does any1 know how to turn an HTML5 based game into an ubuntu application that can be distributed on the "ubuntu store" ?18:34
travnewmatici do not know :(18:34
alimanmay i ask if is there any big differences between ubuntu unity and ubuntu gnome besides the design?18:34
jul2000I use both and both are fine18:34
k1l_aliman: unity uses compiz, gnome uses mutter.18:35
tenguixCan anyone help with this package conflict? package libuuid1:amd64 2.25.1-3ubuntu4.1 cannot be configured because libuuid1:i386 is at a different version (2.25.1-3ubuntu4)18:36
alimank1l_, srry not used with those terms dunno what means18:36
alimani am new with linux and i just started to learn things18:37
jul2000amd64 is found on 64bit distros and i386 is related to 32bit, that's all I know18:37
k1l_aliman: its the technic running in the background which draws your desktop18:37
Seveastenguix: update the 32bit and 64 bit version at the same time, or get rid of one if you don't need both.18:39
tenguixaliman, the gnome desktop has been around for a while -- it's relatively lightweight and there are more smaller pieces to it (seems to be more configurable and shows up in a lot of other linux distributions).  Unity is a more unified desktop environment that in my opinion looks like OSX and has the "unity scope", which is like this fancy overlay thing.18:40
tenguixSeveas: what switch do I pass to apt/dpkg to remove the i386 arch?18:41
jul2000GNOME is preferable to build a macosx like config, I have found lately, because of cairo dock18:41
Seveastenguix: apt-get remove --purge libuuid1:i386 (make sure that doesn't also want to remoe thing you'd like to keep)18:41
k1l_tenguix: aliman unity uses the same base (gnome3) like gome-shell (what people actually call gnome3). but neither of them are considered lightweight. see xfce or lxde for a lightweight desktop18:42

touil76Hello. My friend, who has a laptop that runs ubuntu 14.04, has had a problem with it this morning. After a reboot, the screen of the laptop has remained black. I guess it's kernel related as we can get a proper boot using an ancient kernel.18:51
jonascjHmm, unity-tweak-center seemed to do the trick18:51
touil76My question is : what is the best procedure to reinstall the latest kernel properly, and is this advised ? Thank you.18:52
CptRageToastertouil76: Compile from source, then run the install script18:52
yeats!mainline | touil7618:52
ubottutouil76: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds18:52
CptRageToasterIt's not that complicated, as long as you aren't afraid of running a script or two18:52
touil76Too complicated. My friend is not able to do this.18:52
jonascjtouil76: you should only install a new kernel if you need it. You risk getting an unstable system.18:52
rzyzhello, which package i must install to test qt creator with qt5?18:53
rzyzi install qtcreator, but i have qt4, not qt5 :/18:53
thebestgirl|mobiwhen I copy text it put linebreaks where the text wraps around18:53
jonascjtouil76: a valid reason is "I want to try the new kernel for kicks", but then you should probably get down and dirty. Learn to compile and install18:53
thebestgirl|mobiany way to stop that?18:53
kokotakuscan someone help me pls18:53
touil76I don't want to install a brand new kernel. It's just that the latest kernel installed can't boot properly. We are compelled to boot from an ancient one.18:53
yeatstouil76: based on your symptoms, it sounds like the graphics driver isn't getting loaded in the new kernel18:54
yeatstouil76: check the Xorg.logs18:54
touil76yeats: that's what I thought too. I guess we should reinstall the graphics driver somehow.18:54
bpromptthebestgirl|mobi:    come again?18:56
touil76yeats: where can he find the interesting xorg.log file when he has booted with an ancient kernel ?18:56
yeatstouil76: /var/log/Xorg.0.log and similar18:57
touil76yeats : Ok, what should he look for in these logs ?18:58
avid_fantouil76: Is the laptop completely unresponsive with the newer kernel and black screen?18:59
yeatstouil76: first off, anything with (EE) in the line19:00
avid_fantouil76: What I mean, is can you get to a terminal login with <CTRL><ALT>F1?19:00
touil76No I cannot get a terminal login with <CTRL><ALT>F119:01

ulrichardI assume it's possible to mount an initramfs with a liveCD to repair a messed up script. But where can I find a howto?19:07
SchrodingersScat!chroot | ulrichard , this?19:08
ubottuulrichard , this?: A 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/BasicChroot19:08
astair_44@ulrichard: search for chroot19:08
touil76yeats: what should I do now ?19:08
ulrichardchroot is if I have it all in a directory. But first I need to mount it somehow, I assume.19:09
ulrichardThe script I need to repair is already inside the initramfs.19:10
yeatstouil76: I would google those errors and see if there are relevant results19:11

bpromptjul2000:    yes, did you burn the liveUSB to the stick with "persistent storage"?19:15
ulrichardThe script I need to fix is for decrypting the root fs.19:15
bpromptjul2000:    anyhow, that's what "persistent storage" is for, to keep the changes after every session, you can even install, whatever in the session, and it'd be kept, with whatever settings you set it19:16

bpromptjul2000:    should..... so.... not sure what you did or didn't do.... but I"ve done that quite a few times, even changed xorg.conf and it kept it like I set it19:18
=== sherpadoo is now known as coffee-
jul2000ok so I probably failed to create the persistent storage properly then19:18
bpromptjul2000:      only consideration would be, let the system shutdown properly on its own processing, as opposed to have a force-poweroff by holding-down the power button19:19

PrinceProsperoHello, I have an integrated graphics chip (Intel HD Graphics 5500) and I just allocated 1024MB to it in the BIOS and that shows up fine in Windows but in Ubuntu I only see 256MB running 'lspci'. Is there additional tweaks that I need to do within Ubuntu?19:21
jul2000And when I do the install on HD from the USB, will it use the USB OS config or the default one as usual ?19:22
micky219can anyone suggest me pdf editor with almost similar editing functionality as that of Nitro..19:23
bpromptjul2000:     IIRC, it uses the usb stick, I don't recall to what extent.... but in my case, the one I noticed right off, was the xorg.conf, it used the one I had in the usb stick, IIRC it did apply most configuration changes in the stick19:24
MionPrinceProspero: lspci doesn't show how much ram it really reserves19:24

JuJuBeebprompt: right, but will there be a noticeable performance gain?  Reason is there is 1 app I would like to be able to run (work with an interactive white board in classroom) that will not work under 64 bit.20:13
alimanok i try with dd now. i hope i'll handle it it takes a while until i learn to use linux20:14
EriC^^aliman: use bs=4M so it finishes quicker20:14
=== dragly is now known as Svenn-Arne
EriC^^sudo dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M20:15
Dewin|workIt tells dd to work with 4MB blocks, which is likely to more optimal for your hardware than whatever dd's default (512-byte blocks?) is.20:15
TheNumbcp *.iso /dev/sdX will also work20:16
shovel_bossi heard hackers use linux20:16
Dewin|workespecially if you're working on a flash drive, where it's typically 4k blocks -- so if dd wants to write a 512-byte block, it requires the flash to internally read the entire 4k, change the relevant 512 bytes in memory, and write the entire 4k back... just in time to turn around and do it again.20:16
shovel_bossa hacker from anonymous told me to install ubunto20:16
alimanEriC^^, what is that going to do?20:16
shovel_bossi can become just like him20:16
shovel_bossplease help me20:16
shovel_bossi want to be a hacker just like you guys20:16
EriC^^aliman: Dewin|work explained it20:16
k1l_shovel_boss: we dont support any of that in here. please stop asking20:17
TheNumbk1l_: I guess he's just a bad troll.20:17
bpromptJuJuBee:    http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/32-bit-64-bit-operating-systems/     <----  memory handling per cycle, that should make a difference20:17
shovel_bossk1I_ let me join your cult!!11120:18
octavianwill I lose java and other programs if I migrate from ubuntu 14.10 to lubuntu 14.04?20:18
tewardoctavian: you'd be doing a downgrade and a migration - you'll have to reinstall your programs, yes.20:19
bpromptJuJuBee:    so... in short, it does make a difference, since a 64bit will take advantage of the 64bit cpu allocation for memory and processing per cycle20:19
alimandd: failed to open ‘/path/to/iso’: No such file or directory20:20
JuJuBeebprompt: someone else in linux community told me 32bit will handle 64G ram?20:20
EriC^^aliman: you have to put the path to the iso you downloaded20:20
k1l_aliman: change "/path/to/iso" to the actual path to where the linux is located20:20
EriC^^like /home/aliman/Downloads/lubuntu.iso20:20
Dewin|workand do likewise where /dev/sdX refers to where your flash drive is.20:20
EriC^^aliman: yes, type sudo parted -l , and get the name of your usb, sdb sdc etc.20:21
bpromptJuJuBee:    hehe,  the bit part, is just usually, how much info the cpu handles per cycle, a 1ghz cpu, means, 1billion cycles per second, a 1ghz 32bit cpu, means 1billion cycle, and 32bits, or 32/8  = 4bytes per cycle, 64bit, should be   64/8 = 8bytes per cycle20:22
bpromptJuJuBee:    but the OS and app need to "intune" with the bit handling, so, a 64bit OS with a 64bit, would, a 32bit one does not20:22
EriC^^aliman: dont get the name wrong, it will write to the hdd or whatever you tell it to20:22
acz32i'm new to linux. i read ubuntu is based on debian unstable. is there a reason why new software in ubuntu is released in update packs every 6 months as opposed to rolling-release?20:22
k1l_acz32: yes, because the user gets a stable base for 6 months (or even more for the LTS release)20:23
JuJuBeebprompt: thanks, but still doesn't tell me if I will notice a difference.  Guess I can just install a 32 bit version and mess with it.20:23
alimanModel: USB FLASH DRIVE (scsi)20:24
alimanDisk /dev/sdb: 8020MB20:24
alimanSector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B20:24
alimanPartition Table: msdos20:24
EriC^^ok, so use /dev/sdb20:24
bpromptJuJuBee:    for the app to be able to use it, of course, the app must be running on a 64bit OS, and the app itself must be of 64bit archicture, and of course, the cpu must also be a 64bit cpu20:24
acz32k1l_: stable as in nothing changes, or as in more likely to not crash or have issues20:24
k1l_acz32: both20:25
frugalhelpHi, is there any way to do a frugal install of an OS to an empty hard drive, i.e. one without any Linux distro already installed on it?20:25
tewardacz32: 'stable' means both of those things :P20:25
frugalhelpAll the instructions I see assume you already have Linux installed20:25
k1l_frugalhelp: of course you can. just boot the install media (usb or dvd) and use the installer20:26
frugalhelpI already tried unetbootin, but it didn't detect my external USB hdd20:26
frugalhelpAnd unfortunately Lubuntu install doesn't detect it either20:26
alimanif like this is ok then nothing happendsudo dd if=/home/aliman/Downloads/ubuntu-gnome-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M20:27
k1l_frugalhelp: you want to install onto that usb-disk or use that disk as install medium?20:27
frugalhelpIf no one has any suggestions, I can at least try eSATA connection on another computer20:27
EriC^^aliman: what do you mean?20:27
frugalhelpInstall onto USB-disk. And then be able to boot from that disk on various computers (thus the frugal install)20:27
alimani wroted that in termnal and pressed enter. nothing happend20:27
EriC^^it just returned?20:28
frugalhelpIn my case, I'm trying to get Parted Magic installed, but it would be useful for other OS's as well20:28
EriC^^aliman: can you paste the command and whatever followed?20:28
k1l_aliman: what means nothing happend? it doesnt show a progressbar. it just runs till its done20:28
frugalhelpk1l_:  Tell you what, I'll try connecting with eSATA on the other computer, then I'll come back if it doesn't work20:28
alimannothing happend means nothing happend. no progress bar nothing20:28
Dewin|workZCZ32: Debian stable is the "This has been tested and in production for a long time, any possible issues have been worked out."  Debian unstable is newer software, decently tested but may still have some significant bugs (but likely fixed quickly.).  Debian testing is a mix between the wild west and 'here thar be dragons'20:28

TheNumb_X_C_V_B_: and that's the exact issue I have been dealing with on that other laptop.20:44
k1laliman: yes. if you use dd you got a cleared usb drive with only the exact copy from the .iso on it20:44
TheNumb_X_C_V_B_: is you router's channel set to auto?20:45
alimank1l, ok thx so i dont have to worry about what was there before20:45
k1laliman: no20:45
XCVBfucking wifi20:45
bprompt_aliman:     pretty much, yes, "dd" does "raw copy", it writes at sector 0, down till it finishes, regardless of what's on sector 0 of the device/stick, if the iso is bootable, the sector 0 will contain all that and the copy will also be bootable, it could be a windows image, and "dd" will write it just the same, since it's "raw" and irrelevant of content specs20:45

Bashing-omsheap: "md126" = multi disk = raid ??21:56
Arrickthanks le_pig that worked21:56
sheapBashing-om: yea it has something to do with raid...I want to preserve the raid but install grub but grub can't install21:57
le_pigArrick: I'm glad. I was actually wondering the same thing and I just learned as well. :)21:57
fribEric^^ what should i mount on /mnt?21:57
fribBecause it's remind me /mnt/dev doesn't exist and i thought the /dev/sdX went on /mnt/boot/efi21:58

iampozhi guys, I am having issues running a scrip on a usb drive. it is moutned any everything. I open the terminal up in the folder and type this ./start.sh but it says I dont have permissions to do that. so I am like yeah I do, and I go all sudo chmod +x start.sh and then retry the last command and no difference22:02
knobiampoz, what commands are inside the script?22:03
knobGuys, question... I don't know what update go I recently installed in my 14.10 setup... now my dual-monitor vid card only displays one monitor.  Any ideas what I can check?22:04
iampozlots I guess, I can put it into paste bin for you if you want.. it is the game pillars of eternity from the gog.com website22:04
knobI confirmed both monitors are working, both cables are working... Ubuntu boots up and loads with one monitor connected... and it loads up and works with the other monitor connected.   Yet, when both are connected... nothing.22:05
Bashing-omiampoz: Are you cd'd (PWD) to the location of the target file ? as the './' directs, this directory right here .22:05
knobAny idea if it could be an update that I ran?22:05
fribI had a grub installation with efi boot and apparently i messed it up and can't figure out how to fix it can anyone help? Thanks so much22:05
iampozthey support linux so I was like, right on! and tryed it out. it was working fine last night but then I moved it onto a usb drive to save space and now I can not get permissions on it22:05
EriC^^frib: did you chroot?22:05
acz32if i install ubuntu and select the option to encrypt with LVM, later on in the installer when i am creating a user, it asks if i want to encrypt my home folder. should i select that or is it redundant? why is it asking again.22:06
knobacz32, additional security?22:06
iampozyes I am in the correct directory22:06
acz32knob: how is it additional security? it's not. home directory is created under /, which was encrypted in a prior step22:06
fribEric well i realized that you said to mount /dev/sdxY on /mnt/boot/efi22:06
acz32so it's a bit confusing22:07
fribAnd i cant mount the other directories without first mounting a partition on /mnt which i thought was supposed to be /dev/sdxy22:07
iampozroot@PimpTop:/media/poz/Data/Games/Pillars of Eternity# ./start.sh22:08
iampozbash: ./start.sh: Permission denied22:08
fribWhat should i mount to mnt?22:08
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest43948
iampozI can put the script into a pastebin if that might help22:08
fribEric^^ ?22:09
EriC^^frib: your installation's partition22:09
fribOk so /dev/sda322:09
EriC^^do you have any other partitions? /var etc. ?22:09
fribYes i believe i have a bit partition22:10
EriC^^what's that?22:10
fribAn efi partition22:11
EriC^^oh ok22:11
fribSo I'm assuming that comes into play here somewhere22:11
EriC^^yes mount that to /mnt/boot/efi22:11
iampozsooo is it like a normal thing to not be able to run scrips off of a mounted usb drive?22:11
EriC^^iampoz: it depends if you mounted it with noexec22:12
EriC^^i think22:12
EriC^^iampoz: what's going on?22:12
fribEric I chroited in.  Where should i install grub to?22:13
EriC^^grub-install --recheck /dev/sda22:13
iampozNot sure if i mounted it with noexec... I did not intentionally anyways22:13
EriC^^iampoz: type bash /path/to/script.sh22:14
iampozI am trying to run a scrip called start.sh but it says I do not have permissions, ever after I do this sudo chmod +x start.sh22:14
fribIt says embedding isn't possible again22:14

fribIm booted on live CD at the moment22:15
iampozroot@PimpTop:/media/poz/Data/Games/Pillars of Eternity# bash /path/to/start.sh22:15
iampozbash: /path/to/start.sh: No such file or directory22:15
iampozlike that?22:15
fribI don't know how22:15
iampozoooh, never mind, i see what you mean22:15
EriC^^iampoz: you need to replace /path/to/start.sh with the path you have22:15
iampozlol yes, I got that22:16
EriC^^iampoz: if you're in the dir, just type bash start.sh22:16
knobGuys, if I run lspci | grep VGA,  I get both graphics cards listed... yet I am only getting a display out of one monitor...22:16
knobAny... idea what could be going on?22:16

fribEric i think the USB installation is an old version of ubuntu without efi capability22:17
EriC^^frib: try sudo modprobe efivars22:17
EriC^^frib: which ubuntu version is it?22:17
iampozThanks EriC^^, I got a different error, this might help me track down where I do not have permissions.... I know there is a way to add it to all files in a directory, how do I do that?22:17
EriC^^frib: that has uefi22:18
fribModprove failed22:18
EriC^^iampoz: you mean you want to mount it with version permissions?22:18
fribSorry for typos I'm on cell phone22:18
EriC^^frib: ok, try pressing esc when the pc boots and choose boot options and choose uefi usb, if that doesn't work check the bios for boot options22:19
Arrickacz32, it is basically encrypting the drive, and then encrypting your home directory per user22:19
EriC^^make sure uefi is selected22:19
fribF9 boot device options22:20
iampozEric^^, no I want to change all the files inside of the directory to have executable permissions.22:20
fribNow there is an option for various disks or not from efi file22:20
fribBoot* from22:20
EriC^^iampoz: chmod -R +x /path/to/dir22:20
EriC^^it's recursive22:20
iampozah, I see. Thank you22:20
EriC^^frib: ok, try selecting uefi usb22:21
knobAny idea what I can do with these two graphics cards?22:22

monojinI fear I may have gone overkill on the swap partition on my bf's install; his dad is an ancient ITer and recommend "three to four times the internal memory"22:48
fribHow do i make sure it exists?22:48
EriC^^frib: ls /boot22:48
monojinis 20GB of swap memory ridiculous?22:48
fribOK done22:48
daftykinsmonojin: yes22:48
daftykinsmonojin: if it's a laptop, match system RAM so hibernate and so on can work22:49
EriC^^frib: type boot22:49

EriC^^frib: ok22:50
EriC^^update-grub time22:50
monojinObrienDave, daftykins: are there negative effects aside from the wasted space?22:50
EriC^^might as well grub-install too22:50
fribThat's it?22:50
daftykinsmonojin: yes, wasted space ;)22:50
fribI could have done this all along?22:50

gameking513 How do i remote shutdown a windows pc from ubuntu?22:53
VeiledSpectreHello everyone - general question - when a kernel module is built from source - where does it get the string that indicates which kernel it was built against?22:53
fribEric is already gone22:54
fribBut it just sits at the menu indefinitely22:54
bpromptmonojin:    depends on how much is there in physycal ram, and depends on how much is used in general22:54
k1lmonojin: that is old "rule of thumb". but today you buy more ram and try not to use swap, because ddr3/4 ram is so much faster than old hdds22:54
EriC^^frib: what's timeout set to?22:55
EriC^^and grub hidden timeout?22:56
* ObrienDave does NOT use swap22:58
EriC^^frib: are you sure there's no # before GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT ?22:58
ObrienDave*quietly suggests grub-customizer*22:59
EriC^^then update-grub23:04
fribThat's there too23:04
fribBut the value is 023:05

ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to Windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus23:34

bewbzThank you ubottu23:34
daftykinsbewbz: you install from the flash drive, not run23:34
monojinbewbz: from a recent linux convert, many hardware manufactors contribute directly to the linux kernel to make it support your hardware out of the box23:34

acz32ubuntu has gone downhill you mean? why23:47
keltim1. it's messy - a great many programs out of main don't even work, it doesn't even seem like they were even compiled against the release I see so many lib errors in some of them, they keep changing everything with every release, there is little to no documentation because of that and the forums are littered with outdated and incorrect ways to do things23:49

=== tcpman is now known as Guest21069

keltimthe other killer for me is unity, and I know that's their baby, but it doesn't play well with anything else. So at this point if you don't like it you really should move away from ub.23:51
k1lwell, lets stick to fix actual issues in here. and not in dreaming of the old gnome2 days23:51
