BlackDalekhmmm.. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the mac says it is "paired" with the ubuntu computer, but not "connected".. Perhaps sending files via bluetooth from mac to ubuntu is just impossible?00:03
avansledrightbluetooth is platform independent00:05
avansledrightas long as the devices are paired and connected it should be possible00:06
avansledrightquestion is why would you send files via bluetooth? are they not networked?00:06
BlackDalekavansledright, yeah... they are not currently networked. My ubuntu computer does not belong on here at this location where the mac is. Just thought bluetooth might be a quick way to transfer the files instead of connecting it temporarily to the network.00:08
BlackDalekavansledright, but not to worry. I just emailed it instead.00:08

daftykinsuflaig: ah ok, i wondered if it might not have been safely unmounted previous. no idea then01:57
uflaigmy issue is really just that it doesn't automount when I plug in this device via usb01:57
neldogzdaftykins: in the official Ubuntu book (8th edition) it states that the most significant diffrence between the two is the custom server kernel. This kernel employs an internal timer frequency of 100hz instead of the desktop default of 250hz and uses the deadline I/O scheduler instead of the desktop CFQ scheduler.. also states that it contains a batch of other minor tweaks for virtualization, memory support and routing01:58

" does that mean the 3.18 kernel  def would have that patch then?02:28

semitoneseikon81g: I do, but that hardkey doesn't function properly in #ubuntu. What happens is, if my laptop is ever suspended for a significant amount of time, when it resumes, the trackpad is all screwy. The pointer doesn't move very far, sometimes it scrolls the screen when you try to move the pointer up or down, etc. Everything i've tried doesn't fix it, but after 5 or 10 minutes sometimes it goes back to normal. I've been watching /var/log/syslog th02:31
eikon81ghardinfo will tell you if it is detected and installed..02:31
semitonesoh my bad02:32
eikon81gsemitones, maybe you can bind a new key to function it?02:32
eikon81gthen once you suspend and come back to the machine you can just enable/disable..02:32
eikon81git's not the driver. . it's something else good info there..02:33
eikon81gI am a newbie so maybe someone else can chime in here too..02:33
eikon81gis it like a SUPER-F button that enables / disables the keyboard?02:33
semitoneseikon81g: I'm installing hardinfo now. The trackpad on/off button works in windows, but in ubuntu it just displays a notification, but doesn't do anything with the trackpad02:34
semitoneseikon81g: it's a separate button all by itself that turns red when the trackpad is off. In ubuntu, pressing it doesn't make it turn red02:34

eikon81gok ok02:34
semitoneseikon81g: I've tried modprobing it on and off, but that doesn't work02:35
eikon81gthen you are a step ahead of me..02:35
eikon81gso maybe you can make a script to disable and re-enable the driver when you resume?02:35
semitoneseikon81g: how do I find what the driver is?02:37
eikon81glook at this semitones02:37

eikon81ghumm is it working now?02:38
semitoneseikon81g: yes02:39

semitoneseikon81g: ok, yeah it looks like it works actually. It's funny. In the preferences, none of the preferences do anything, but it did succeed in turning off my trackpad (i had to kill it via terminal, then modprobe psmouse to get it back :) So we'll see if it works next time I get the suspend problem02:58

avansledrightforward port 80 on your router to whatever port you have apache broadcasting on03:42
=== Yukkino is now known as Dhs92
zerowaitstateericb__: first of all, what's not resolving?03:47
zerowaitstateericb__: resolving usually refers to DNS. Is that the problem?03:48
AudacesWhats the difference between 14.04 and 14.10?03:49
ericb__zerowaitstate:i meant resolving generally. the server is connected fine. im just not able to access it when i type in my ip, even though the ports are set to forward to it, it's acting like they're not03:49
zerowaitstateericb__: what computer are you typing the IP from (one from your internal network, or one from the internet) ?03:49
zerowaitstateericb__: the reason i ask is because some NAT routers will not loop back their external interface address03:50
ericb__zerowaitstate: yep, tried nat loopback (not sure if I did it right,) but I cant access it from my mobile phone or my pc on the same network03:51
AudacesI don't seem to be getting an option to upgrade to 14.103:51
zerowaitstateericb__: can you access it from your phone on the carrier network?03:51
ericb__zerowaitstate: nope03:51
Christopher-Werei'll try that now farzeen03:52
zerowaitstateericb__: do you have the INPUT chain on iptables set to default deny?03:52
ericb__zerowaitstate: unless it is set as such by default no. ive got ufw installed but disabled. when i try to access my ip it shows a 404 page that is being sent from my router (it displayed before port forwarding)03:53
zerowaitstateericb__: are you able to access the site from your internal network via the private IP?03:54
ericb__zerowaitstate: yes03:54
zerowaitstateports.conf will not help you then. ports.conf controls what ports on the linux host apache listens on.  if you can access via internal network, then ports.conf is working03:55
zerowaitstateericb__: are you running virtual hosts in apache?03:55
ericb__zerowaitstate: kk thats what I was hoping. well it has to be something misconfigured in the router then right?03:55
ericb__zerowaitstate:  nope03:56
zerowaitstateokay, then I'm thinking it is the router03:56
zerowaitstateyou can run "tail -f" on the /var/log/apache2/access.log (I think that's right) to see incoming HTTP requests03:56
zerowaitstatethat should help you determine if stuff is actually hitting the box or not03:56
zerowaitstatealternatively run tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log to see malformed requests03:57
Christopher-WereThanks farzeen, that works03:57
zerowaitstateericb__: remember, if you are using standard port numbering, then port 80 is HTTP and 443 is HTTPS03:58
cfhowlettwoah, what?!  Suddenly, my /filesystem partition is completely full ... AND I have some kind of "overflow" partition active.  What the hey?  Where do I look to fix this?03:58

Bashing-omcfhowlett: cd /var/log ->> sudo du -sx * | sort -n . see which is so large .04:03
ericb__zerowaitstate: nothing in the error log. i noticed that the ports.conf file said 80 and 443 in a couple of places. i checked what ports are listening and 80 was not listed but 443 was04:03
zerowaitstateericb__: are you accessing your site from port 80 or 443 in your tests?04:06
zerowaitstatei.e., are you using HTTP or HTTPS?04:06
cfhowlettBashing-om, found it, last entry = a 4 gb!  log04:06
zerowaitstatethat's the same pastebin04:07
ericb__zerowaitstate: im not sure, ive configured both to forward. do you mean using the private ip? how can I determine what port it is successfully accessing it through?04:07

tpayneHello. I have EC2 ubuntu machines (that write to a single db) all giving me different times when I type date (off by 27 seconds or so) and it's screwing up my ordering of writes because I get system time from Java code and persist it with mongodb. Any who, how can I make sure things are sync'd?04:15
zerowaitstateericb__: then the problem is in your router. your machine IS listening or port 80, or http:// would not work04:15
zerowaitstateericb__: unless you are typing some special port number in the url, as in http://blah.com:1567/04:16

zerowaitstatetpayne: i don't know04:18
tpaynehehe, ok thanks04:18
zerowaitstatetpayne: the time differences will take a bit to settle; ntp slews the clock based on historical sampling, and virtualization monkeys with that a bit04:18
tpayneyeah i just installed it, and they're still off by about 1 minute04:19

fattanehhi all, how to set a static same ip address for my vm in virtualbox?08:44

revisorHi, why does my Ubuntu VM installation add ".dev" to a ping request to non-existing domain? The same goes on with eg. gethostbyname('foo') in PHP. Where should I start looking? The VM is configured with a hostname "example.dev". Is it connected to this?08:52

=== nikis is now known as niek

neo1691_Hi guys, I want to understand exactly what happens when I use the network manager from the ubuntu panel to change the network profile? I have created some profiles for different network with different IPs.  Can I somehow trigger them from the command line or from python?09:06
neo1691_Basically I want to write a script to enable and disable proxy variables in /etc/environment and /etc/apt/apt.conf and change IP addresses/DHCP based on the network I am on.09:07
neo1691_If I change the profile from the network manager applet on the status bar, I see no change in /etc/network/interfaces. I want to know which files exactly do they write? So that I can manually write them using  python09:10
h0ddH3dneo1691_: check nmcli09:11
carl__that's because network manager is in unmanaged mode by default, meaning that it handles interfaces with its own files instead of /etc/network/interfaces09:12
neo1691_h0ddH3d: Thanks!! carl__ just a question. Will nmcli or any other tool like wicd use the profiles from networkmanger or will I need to create new profiles for nmcli/wicd ?09:13
bekksneo1691_: nmcli is the command line utilty of NetworkManager.09:13
bekksneo1691_: So it uses the NetworkManager profiles.09:13
carl__yep, nmcli should use the same files as network manager09:14
carl__wicd probably won't, though09:14
neo1691_bekks: carl__ Thanks a lot.09:15
carl__i think you can set network manager mode by editing /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf, if you want it to use /etc/network/interfaces, but i can't be sure09:15
Pantsusilly ubuntu that doesn't have nmtui yet09:15
geirhaoh curses09:16
bekksPantsu: What do you need nmtui for, when there is nmcli?09:16

=== marvin is now known as Guest15418
bekksPantsu: So start it, it's opensource and participation is highly welcome.09:19
neo1691_nmcli doesn't seem to be a part of ubuntu 12.04 official repositories?09:19
Pantsuneo1691_: it is part of networkmanager itself09:20
h0ddH3dPantsu: If you decide to do some work over it i'am her.09:20
Pantsuyou don't want my patches09:21
Pantsuunless you want to torture someone09:21
bekksneo1691_: the package "network-manager" contains it.09:21
neo1691_Pantsu: Ah my bad. It's already there. I ran apt-cache show nmcli and apt-cache search nmcli which returned nothing. This tool should solve my issue09:22
neo1691_thanks bekks :)09:22

systemd0wnQuestion, running 14.04 Desktop and IPv6 is murderously slow when surfing the internet. Disabling it in sysctl seems to only be temporary because it just turns back on. Any suggestions on troubleshooting this so I can keep IPv6? (assuming anyone is awake to answer)12:57
einyxsystemd0wn, ipv6 being slowly is probably because of your isp, not ubuntu itself12:58
k1l_Xavinyo: ubuntu uses batched discard since 14.04 but i dont know how lvm comes into that setting12:59
Xavinyok1l_ lvm needs to pass discard signals to the underlying physical drives.. since I have to ssds in a logical volume i need to set things in lvm.conf13:01
Xavinyok1l_, I made a pastebin for informative outputs:  http://codepad.org/ShGHNhcA13:02
f0086Is there a other mapping between unix gid/uid and the actual name than /etc/passwd?13:02
f0086On my system there is a user/group I can't find in /etc/passwd13:03
bekksf0086: no.13:03
k1l_Xavinyo: ok, but i dont know about lvm trim setup. sorry13:03
bekksf0086: Which user/group do you see there?13:03
k1l_Xavinyo: if no one in here knows maybe try to ask on askubuntu.com or the ubuntuforums13:03
bekksXavinyo: are you running fstrim as root?13:04
f0086bekks: I use froxlor which will create this user/groups ... but there are not in /etc/passwd13:04
gautam__Why gedit/firefox is opening on server side, not on client side. When I have ssh into server from client side with -X option13:04
f0086bekks: I can't find the place where these names are defined13:04
bekksf0086: Whats "froxlor2?13:05
bekksf0086: froxlor even.13:05
Xavinyobekks, yes13:05
f0086bekks: a web tool to manage hosting stuff13:05
f0086bekks: It does not matter13:05
bekksf0086: So thats a good question for their support then.13:05
bekksf0086: It does matter, of course.13:05
f0086bekks: It is a basic linux/unix question: Where can I find the mechanism which will translate the gid/uid into names? I thought /etc/passwd is the only place but there must be a other place13:06
bekksf0086: Ask the froxlor support where they are doing things like that.13:07
bekksf0086: It is a basix product support question.13:07
cq-auxdoes anyone want to skype-chat?13:08
f0086Ok, I will ask a completely other question: If I want wot mount an external NFS share, How can I use the gid/uid names from an external source (the nfs server) and not do a copy/paste of the /etc/passwd file?13:09
bekksf0086: Withou specifying any uid/gid, the numerical values from the source (the nfs server) are in effect.13:09
k1l_cq-aux: this is technical support only. better ask in #ubuntu-offtopic for chitchat13:10
f0086bekks: where can I specify the gid/uid mapping?13:11
systemd0wneinyx, I'd like to determine what about it is so slow. Any suggestions? I added Googles IPv6 DNS servers which didn't seem to change anything.13:12
bekksf0086: In the mount command.13:12
bekksf0086: you can specify which uid/gid the external uid/gid should be maped to.13:12
einyxsystemd0wn, is hard to tell, maybe with a traceroute you can see if there is some hop from which the connection start to slow down13:13
systemd0wnI just tried ipv6-test.com/speedtest to compare and it says I'm getting nearly 26Mbps on both.13:14
systemd0wneinyx: I'll do some tinkering. In the meantime do you know how I can disable IPv6 in the network manager? I know I can specify to disable it at boot but I'd rather not.13:15
einyxsystemd0wn, errr i think if you go into network settings -> wired -> options you can say "ignore"13:17
einyxor something like that :D13:17
systemd0wneinyx: I appreciate the help. But ignore doesn't seem to do it.13:22
kokutHello, how do you check your brightness settings from the terminal?13:34
einyxsystemd0wn, lol13:35
pbxkokut, xbacklight is what i use13:35
einyxsystemd0wn, check under /proc13:36
einyxyou should be able to echo under proc on a file called disable_ipv613:37
fuffyHello. Which linux can I use on a Pentium 3 with 120MB RAM? I just need a web browser in there.13:37
pbxkokut, it lets you control the level too. e.g.  http://dpaste.com/3XZJW5613:37
MonkeyDustfuffy  try lubuntu13:37
fuffyMonkeyDust: lubuntu needs to much ram13:37
MonkeyDustfuffy  it's the "lightest", maybe look for an ever lighter distro13:38
k1l_fuffy: you could try a minimal install and see whats working for you. but i think with a that old device you want some of the really small distros13:39
fuffyMonkeyDust: it may be the lightest ubuntu13:39
kokutpbx: nice, i dontk now why but when i turn on my laptop after unpluggin the external monitor it lowers my brightness and the GUI to change it from ubuntu is bugged, i set it to the max and it goes to 80% so i have to set it up myself13:39
pbxkokut, yeah, there are ways to manage brightness automatically depending on power state but i haven't found any simple enough for my liking. so i have simple shell aliases that use xbacklight13:41
MonkeyDustfuffy  or what k1l_ says, the minimal install and install just what you need13:42
fuffyMonkeyDust: do you know of any web browser who can display images but doesnt need X?13:43
PierreBitantLynx ?13:44
hkrrsxfuffy: w3m text browser in xterm will show images13:45
fuffyhkrrsx: thanks13:46
hkrrsxfuffy: you're welcome13:47

Agent86hi ubuntu, I have a   .py file that I transfer via local network to another ubuntu computer. But the .py file is permission locked when it gets to the other computer. I can't run the .py script and cannot unlock the permissions15:07
Agent86The file starts out as chmod 777 so it's unlocked why would it lock on the other side ?15:07
Agent86and cannot be unlocked via terminal ?15:07
somsipAgent86: how do you transfer it?15:08
Agent86I copy and past to the shared folder on the other computer, I do it from the source computer, to the target15:08
Agent86in other words I'm at the source computer, and copy to the target15:09
mcphailAgent86: if you are sharing over samba, I don't think that respects the original file permissions15:09
Agent86should I be at the target computer and copy from source15:09
bekksAgent86: How exactly do you copy the file?15:09
Agent86well they are both ubuntu computers and  I don't believe I'm using samba just the browse network feature of ubuntu to the shared folder15:10
Agent86copy and paste and I have no noticed this before for some reason it seems to be only .py files I can copy a .mp3 just fine and change permissions on the file all I want15:11
bekksCopy and paste from where to where?15:11
Agent86ahhhh I think I figured out, I had geany open and was editing it, so when I copied the file it was already open15:12
=== gusnan_ is now known as gusnan
Agent86oh well that wasn't it15:14
Agent86still locked15:14
Agent86i just use the built in ubuntu browse network, select my local file and copy to Music folder on the other local machine15:14
Agent86it's locked on the other end15:15
bekksAgent86: Define "locked".15:15
bekksAgent86: Pastebin ls -lha filename after you copied the file please.15:15
Agent86meaning right click and says permission could not be determined and has a little padlock icon on it. Also if I chmod 777 file it says something15:15
Agent86ls -lha from which machine does it matter15:16
bekksAgent86: From the machine where the "file is locked".15:16

agrippazi cranked up the global text size setting in the control panel16:50
mchelen1agrippaz, same problem here, are you using unity?16:50
agrippazmchelen1: i believe so? 14.04 clean install16:50
agrippazi have problems with menu bars too small, font size too big for places like the control panel16:51
mchelen1agrippaz, the system wide scaling is not just for fonts/text16:51
agrippazmy cursor size changes drastically depending on which app i'm in16:51

mchelen1agrippaz, what fonts panel?16:53
agrippazah i'm sorry mchelen1, i was using Unity Tweak Tool, where the Fonts panel is16:54
Meway-DesktopI assume primary is exactly what it means and logical is the system usage16:54
mchelen1agrippaz, nope, don't use unity tweak16:54
mchelen1agrippaz, at least not to start with16:54
agrippazah dang16:54
Meway-Desktopbut is extended what I can add to primary?16:54
mchelen1agrippaz, go to Displays and look for "Scale for menu and title bars"16:55
agrippazmchelen1: on your high-dpi system, are the menus and tabs in Chromium/Chrome very small? What machine ar eyou using?16:55
agrippazmchelen1: got it. set to 1.38 which seems to be helping a bit16:56
tucnakhey there! I am trying to build a linux lib with cmake here, but unfortunely #include <gtk/gtk.h>: No such file or directory.16:56
mchelen1agrippaz, chromium is fine, but chrome is bad16:56
tucnakoh yeah, gtk dev package is installed16:56
mchelen1agrippaz, i have a lenovo x1 carbon, 2560x144016:56

mchelen1agrippaz, i have my scale set to 3 :D16:56
mchelen1and didn't touch fonts16:57
mchelen1agrippaz, i was able to get most things to display ok in the main OS, but some apps are still not great16:57

azizLIGHTGuest20728: so correct me if im wrong, you put the swap on your hdd so it doesnt wear out the ssd, right?19:17
yorwoshey guyz , if i make a new user and wanna copy all my desktop settings (panels + shortcuts) how could i do it ?19:17
Guest20728azizLIGHT, yes. although i dont care about wearing out the SSD. I care about the space19:17
azizLIGHToh, i have 16gb swap space19:18
k1l_azizLIGHT: how much ram you got?19:18
azizLIGHT16gb ram19:18
lotuspsychjeazizLIGHT: you can set your firefox to buffer 0 also19:18
ObrienDavebootwithlibraryc, no, it does not work that way. DVD yes, USB no19:18
azizLIGHTlotuspsychje: wow that sounds useful, what will it do?19:18
bootwithlibrarycObrienDave: it worked with windows19:18
k1l_azizLIGHT: so you might not need swap at all if you dont use ram hungry porgrams or want to suspend to ram19:18
lotuspsychjeazizLIGHT: use your ssd power instead of ram on firefox19:19
azizLIGHTi like suspend, but i will move it to hdd, like Guest20728 said19:19
k1l_lotuspsychje: what?19:19
azizLIGHTlotuspsychje: i dont get it?19:19
k1l_lotuspsychje: ram is a lot faster than ssds.19:19
Erfolgbootwithlibraryc, you can dd the iso to usb19:19
bootwithlibraryclike not the iso itself, but the actual contents. the partition fat32 has the boot flag19:19
bootwithlibrarycErfolg: on windows. I dont think it has dd, does it?\19:20
lotuspsychjek1l_: buffer on 0 here on samsung evo 840 and works rocketfast19:20
lotuspsychjek1l_: but im on a netbook with 2gig ram only19:20
azizLIGHTk1l_: should i use any fstab options for an ssd?19:21
azizLIGHTlotuspsychje: oh ok. in that case ill not use buffer 0 for firefox. i got 16gb ram19:21
Erfolgbootwithlibraryc, there's a windd program i believe and msys2 also has dd19:21
lotuspsychjeazizLIGHT: check the link on ssd tweaking i pasted you19:22
bootwithlibrarycmmmm ill have to see19:22
azizLIGHTah yea forgot about that19:22
lotuspsychjeazizLIGHT: relatime in fstab works pretty good19:23
lotuspsychjeazizLIGHT: instead of noatime19:23
azizLIGHTmust i do something special for trim with luks and lvm?19:23
bootwithlibraryclol my way seems to have worked :)19:24
k1l_azizLIGHT: honestly i dont like that tune up site. what about you start with the ubuntu standards and read yourself into the topic, so you can decide yourself what is best19:24
azizLIGHTone thing defintely i will do is move my swap from ssd to hdd19:25

bekksBray90820: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently19:43
Bray90820bekks: Does it matter that that is a windows share tutorial19:44
bekksBray90820: No. Because smb shares are Windows shares.19:44
Bray90820bekks: what exactly do you mean by windows share because windows is not installed on this qnap19:45
ubuntu_hello body19:45
bekksBray90820: SMB is a filesharing protocol which is used by Windows.19:46
k1l_Bray90820: samba is a windows protocol19:46

akiakiHey all. I tried installing windows, and I deleted an old ext4 partition at the beginning of my device. It told me after "no cigar" and when I rebooted, my other ext4 partition now appears as "unallocated space" in sda220:11

ubottuSome tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel20:11

NGC3982Hi. I use album today, and i notice that it does not seem to update itself when i add new pictures to it. Is this configurable? I can't seem to find anything regarding it in the manual.21:06
mchelen1Traintop, can always try a liveusb and see21:06
Traintopbut to bring back another idea: even in coompizconfig when I "bind" the button to the script, compizconfig names the key "XFree86ToggleTouchpad" this has to come from somewhere... -any ideas?21:06
mchelen1Traintop, that just sounds like the system id for the button21:07

mchelen1Traintop, you can probably find the definition somewhere in the source code, but i don't think thats what you want21:10
mchelen1Traintop, the name doesn't matter except that its bound to some action somewhere21:10
Traintopmchelen1: no :-) -I rather thought of a file where these definitions are done while booting or so...21:11
mchelen1Traintop, those aren't necessarily text files21:11
mchelen1they can be compiled binaries21:11
Traintopwhat I think is funny, my laptop doesn't even have a touchpad, but ubuntu installs this keybinding even with notifier-icon and so on... :-)21:11
mchelen1Traintop, its possible the touchscreen itself is treated as a touchpad21:12
Traintopmchelen1: the "touchscreen" with the stylus is used as a wacom-graphics-tablet and the finger-touch is something in X (don't exactly know atm what it's called, but it's different to a touchpad21:14

DaveMcAveHi, I just installed Ubuntu via the net install, when I boot grub is skipped completely and automatically boots into Ubuntu, giving me no choice at all to boot into the other paritions, what do I do?21:19
bekksDaveMcAve: Press esc or shift to get into the grub menu.21:19
DaveMcAveOh okay21:20

EightynineHi guys. I'm using openSUSE and it fucked my brain, I hate it's update system. It works bad with Virtualbox(I never had so much problems with it before) and design is total crap. Can you please advice me what DE and FS to use with Ubuntu? Can I replace openSUSE with Ubuntu without formatting whole drive?21:26
EightynineNo-I can't replase or you can't advice?21:27
bekksyou cant replace it.21:27
OerHeksEightynine, formatting takes seconds21:27
bekksBackups may take hours, before :)21:28
EightynineBut I'm using SSD isn't it bad to format it often?21:28
TraintopEightyNine: delete everthing on disc except /home/<youruser>; should work afaik21:28

EightynineCan I just format root?21:31
bekksBackup your data, destroy all partitions found, and install Ubuntu onto the disk.21:32
PartNASi guess thats the point of having root partition21:32
PartNASEightynine: you forgot to make a backup partition21:33
EightynineopenSUSE made this partition layout.21:33
bekksPartNAS: BAckups on the same disk are pointless :)21:33

EightynineIs this better to use Ubuntu with Unity or can I use it with Gnome and it'll be the same? I used Ubuntu a few years ago and I used Xubuntu(tried it) about a year ago), so I don't know if it's handy to use Unity and if Ubuntu Gnome is stable or not.21:35

Iff it shows that the drive is not failing, then have someone walk you through running fsck on /dev/sda1. The fsck might end up fixing the filesystem by deleting /boot/grub/grub.cfg, in which case you'll need to recreate it.
