viGtorhello, do you know if it's safe installing Ubuntu Tweak with Ubuntu Gnome Edition?00:02
lyndel_not sure anyoe else know?00:02
daftykinsthey would reply if they did00:02
lyndel_am sure they would00:02
viGtori mean, i'm not sure if it is Unity oriented00:03
viGtorok i got the answer, it is gnome-shell oriented00:05
viGtorjust if you want to know :)00:05
viGtorit's weird, in the past it was the first app i installed but i havent heard from it since long time00:06
Flannellyndel_: Alright.  Now, I need you to create a file in /etc/apt/preferences.d/ and paste the following into it: http://privatepaste.com/69ff9594d100:07
=== Tex_Nick is now known as Shifted_Nick
Flannellyndel_: once you've saved that file, do the apt-cache policy again (and pastebin the output), so we can verify I typed everything correctly, then we should be ready to continue.00:07
lyndel_saved what file?00:08
=== Shifted_Nick is now known as Tex_Nick
Flannellyndel_: Create a file in /etc/apt/preferences.d/  (so, lets say /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa) paste the contents of the pastebin into the file, then save it.  (You'll need to use sudo)00:08
lyndel_am confused but ok00:09
Flannellyndel_: More explicitly, do this: `sudo touch /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa && sudo nano /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa` then copy/paste into the editor, then save (ctrl-O in nano), then exit (ctrl-X in nano).  Then let me know you've done that.00:09
lyndel_i done it00:12
lyndel_then now what to do?00:12
Flannellyndel_: Alright, now pastebin the apt-cache policy command again (the long one with the package names)00:13
lyndel_u mean run the command again then paste the output online?00:14
Flannellyndel_: Correct.00:15
lyndel_ok lol00:15
lyndel_thats it00:16
Flannellyndel_: Ok, can you please pastebin the output of `cat /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa`?00:17
cgkadesanyone know anything about ubnutu core? reading the docs, i wasn't sure if it was hinting that i386 used grub and not u-boot. can i[356]86 use u-boot?00:18
cgkadesor.. does anyone have a good link to get core running on an 32 bit intel board?00:19
lyndel_sorry have no idea what core is00:22
cgkadeshttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/Core if you're currious00:22
daftykinsmmm curry00:23
lyndel_lol  thanks haha00:23
bekkscgkades: "get core running"?00:23
cgkadesbekks, installed/running/working00:24
bekkscgkades: What is "core"?00:24
cgkadesbekks, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Core00:24
bekkscgkades: And whats the actual issue with that?00:24
cgkadesthe only guides are 1) for an arm board, and 2) not very clear. They downlaod things that have already been created without actually saying what they are or how they were created.00:25
Flannellyndel_: Can you please pastebin the output of `cat /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa`?00:26
cgkadesi'm trying to use it on an intel board (Galileo), so there are obvious differences, and when they just download pre-created things. it's not helpful00:26
lyndel_its empty nothing shows00:27
lyndel_what to do?00:27
Flannellyndel_: Alright.  Sounds like we didn't correctly save that file.00:27
lyndel_did i have to close the no ppa file before using the command?00:27
Flannellyndel_: Right.00:27
lyndel_ok al do it lol00:28
Flannellyndel_: Close the file, then run the cat command again (to verify it saved properly), then run the apt-cache command (and pastebin it)00:28
lyndel_cat commmand shows nothing00:29
Flannellyndel_: Alright, then we didn't successfully save the file.00:29
lyndel_i thought it was file00:30
lyndel_run the commands again?00:31
lyndel_Vlannel what to do?00:33
Flannellyndel_: You need to put that information into the file.  I'm not sure what else to tell yuo to do.  `sudo touch /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa` and then `sudo nano /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa` should work, then you paste the contents in, save the file, etc.00:33
lyndel_u never told me to paste anything u told me to pastebin it which i did00:33
Flannellyndel_: Open the file (with the nano command), PASTE the contents of the pastebin I gave you (http://privatepaste.com/69ff9594d1) into said file, then save the file.00:34
lyndel_oh ok00:35
lyndel_ok i did it00:36
Flannellyndel_: Alright, now, try the cat command to verify the pastebin looks like the file.  Then pastebin the output of the apt-cache command (`apt-cache policy libglapi-mesa xserver-xorg-video-ati libxatracker1 libosmesa6 xserver-xorg-video-nouveau libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-video-intel`)00:37
lyndel_http://privatepaste.com/cd78d88314 thats it00:39
Flannellyndel_: Alright.  That looks good, but lets just double check.  Pastebin the output of `sudo apt-get --simulate dist-upgrade`00:41
=== sleepypc is now known as `hypermist`
lyndel_http://privatepaste.com/310b5383c8 thats it00:43
Flannellyndel_: Looks good.  OK, now go ahead and do it for real: `sudo apt-get dist-upgrade`  and then we'll just need to remove that file we added (sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa)00:45
xanguawhat's this mess, can't you just use PPA purge¿00:46
lyndel_i tryed but it gives eeros00:46
Flannellyndel_: typed what?00:46
lyndel_when i did the purge command00:47
lyndel_so am trying this instead sudo apt-get dist-upgrade00:47
Flannellyndel_: and that gave you errors?00:47
lyndel_that was the first thing i did before coming to this channel rmemeber00:48
lyndel_now am doing what u said to do00:48
Flannellyndel_: right, and the dist-upgrade command gives you errors?00:48
lyndel_The following packages will be upgraded:00:49
lyndel_  winetricks00:49
lyndel_The following packages will be DOWNGRADED:00:49

lyndel_  xserver-xorg-video-radeon00:49
lyndel_flannel yes right?? http://privatepaste.com/de90916dbd00:51
Flannellyndel_: yes.00:51
Flannellyndel_: Then you just need to remove that file you added to /etc/apt/preferences.d/00:52
lyndel_woot its done00:53
lyndel_oh have to remove it00:53
lyndel_wait how to do it?00:53
Flannelsudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa00:53
lyndel_sudo rm /etc/apt/preferences.d/no-ppa this?00:54
lyndel_i think it works how will i know tho? i got no output00:54
lyndel_cat cant find it00:55
lyndel_yep its removed00:55
lyndel_so now just reboot an everything will be ok then?00:55
Flannellyndel_: Now you're back on the repository versions of things, so yes, your reboot should be OK00:55
lyndel_ok brb man al let u know if anything went wrong ok00:56

jeffrey_fAt one time last week, I was able to connect to my other machine by name.  Now, I get "ssh: Could not resolve hostname jeff-pc: Name or service not known".  Any ideas?01:46
daftykinsyes, use IP01:46
daftykinsand consider setting it static if this is internal network usage01:47
psusijeffrey_f, did you have samba installed before and have since removed it?01:49

yorwosare intel's microcode updates to cpu installed in ubuntu by default or should i manually install them ?01:51

jeffrey_fI found it.  a few days ago I changed my DHCP for only IP and manually added for my DNS.  I intended to change it back, but was distracted at some point and forgot since everything else was working.........except, As I found out, local network name resolve.02:02
daftykinsjeffrey_f: ah yes that'll do it :)02:02
daftykinsGoogle DNS would indeed know nothing about your local network hosts02:03

daftykinsif anyone was interested, i learnt from http://inertiawar.com/microcode/ that intel microcode updates are typically supplied via BIOS updates, but that 'modern OS kernels' can also update them, too02:19

saraz3sI have ubuntu on one laptop. I had installed a lot of packages from various sources on the net. Now I jst bought another laptop. Is there anyway that I can transfer all the packages and settings to my new laptop. As in. I have no idea about the packages I installed or where I installed them from. Is there a easy way for me to redownload those exact packages onto my new laptop?03:31
daftykinscopy the content of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ over, ensuring you're using the same version of ubuntu on both03:32
daftykinsafter that, you could use dpkg --get-selections to retrieve a list of packages installed.03:32
daftykinsi'm sure there are far better guides online though03:32
saraz3sI am sorry I am a newbie to ubuntu. So I have no idea where to start searching.03:32
CptRageToastersaraz3s: That's fine... do you get what daftykins was suggestion?03:33
CptRageToasterI can explain it otherwise03:33
saraz3sI don't know how to perform the commands that is all but I got the jist of it03:33
CptRageToasterI'm assuming you have two separate computers?03:34
CptRageToasterso, you have a bunch of text files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/03:34
CptRageToasterthey should all be owned by root:root03:35
CptRageToasteryou'll need to find a way to copy them over to the same location on the newish PC03:35
CptRageToasterstep 003:35
CptRageToasterare these the SAME ubuntu version?03:35
CptRageToasterok good03:35
CptRageToasterthen yeah, copy over those files... to a flash driver or something03:35
CptRageToasterdrive or something03:35
hkrrsxsaraz3s: Get a List of Installed Packages -- http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=26136603:36
CptRageToasteronce those have moved over, you'll need to run an "apt-get update" to let apt-get know you messed with the sources03:36
CptRageToasteronce you did that, then you need to reinstall everything ._.03:36
CptRageToasterthere apparently is a guide03:37
CptRageToasterto tell you what you installed on the old one03:37
CptRageToasterso, that guide03:37
CptRageToasterhas you create a file using the command : dpkg --get-selections > installed-software03:37
saraz3sohh okay03:37
CptRageToasterit takes the output of dpkg --get-selections, and dumps it into a file named "installed-software"03:37
legnbassI just installed ubuntuMATE and there's no sound after sleep. alsa force-reload doesn't fix it. Any ideas why?03:37
CptRageToasterstore THAT file on the flash drive too03:38
CptRageToasterthen, copy everything over to the new PC03:38
CptRageToasterand then, tell dpkg what files you want to install03:38
CptRageToasterby giving it the contents of your file03:38
CptRageToastersaraz3s: feel free to ask any other questions, lots of people here can help03:38
CptRageToasterI think I'm going to go to bed though03:38
CptRageToasterI've got the sleepies03:38
CptRageToasterany quick questions?03:38

=== andrex is now known as andrex|off
saraz3sWhat if my ubuntu version is different03:39
saraz3sconsidering vivd is coming out03:39
CptRageToasterthen... your sources should NOT be copied03:39
saraz3sWill the same directions imply03:39
CptRageToastersadley, no03:39
saraz3sSo I would have to again use the  dpkg --get-selections03:39
saraz3sand then reinstall one by one03:39
CptRageToasterI think so...03:40
CptRageToasterthe packages may not be there03:40
daftykinsexcept you wouldn't be able to get them all because you might have some PPAs03:40
CptRageToasterthey may not have updated03:40
CptRageToasteror you might be missing a ppa as daftykins said03:40
CptRageToasteryou can get CLOSE03:40
saraz3sbut a lot of my packages are from many other ppas that I got from the net03:41
daftykinsif you pastebin one of the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ files it might help me understand how they're made up03:41
saraz3sokay sure03:41
saraz3sjust give me a sec03:41
daftykinsback in the day, lines added to /etc/apt/sources.list would have the version after them that they offered packages for03:41
saraz3sjust one is enough?03:41
daftykinspossibly, try one of the .list ones i think they're named03:41

aeon-ltddoes it show MM highlighted ? try toggling it04:06
legnbassMaster is at 100 and auto-mute is disabled04:08
legnbassMM isn't highlighted anywhere04:09

hkrrsxlegnbass: Is PulseAudio muted?04:09
legnbassI don't think pulse is muted04:10
legnbassi tried killing it04:10
daftykinsrestart the services04:10

aombk i am installing an operating system inside virtualbox. the installation is stuck close to the end and i just see some network traffic for a while now. i run wireshark and try to trace the destination ips. but i wanted to ask. how safe is that? how much of the outside os can the os inside the virtualbox see? nobody in #vbox is replying and i dont know if it is better to stop the process. any opinions?04:19
daftykins"samba does not open" doesn't really make much sense, since it's a way of gaining access to network file shares, or sharing files04:19
daftykinsoh. user quit. how apt04:20
legnbassI do not04:20
legnbassSo far nothing has given me sound except rebooting once I sleep the laptop04:21
hkrrsxIs the pulseaudio process currently running?04:21
hkrrsxps aux | grep pulseaudio04:21
OerHeks aombk what os in virtualbox? what os as host?04:22
legnbassI have two pulseaudio PIDs when I do ps -d | grep pulseaudio04:22
OerHeksaombk, destination would be your virtual OS04:23
hkrrsxlegnbass: Run " grep RUN /etc/default/speech-dispatcher "04:23
hkrrsxDoes it return YES or NO ?04:23
daftykinslegnbass: well if you'll forgive the obvious suggestion then... don't use sleep04:23
aombkOerHeks, host os ubuntu, virtualbox os x04:24
aeon-ltdOSX works in a vm?04:24
legnbassOoh that command returned No04:25
daftykinsaeon-ltd: best to ask #vbox that04:25
aombkaeon-ltd, yes it does04:25
hkrrsxlegnbass: That's fine, the support articles suggest that should be set to NO04:25
aombkOerHeks, so what do you think?04:26
legnbasshkrrsx: ps aux shows a process started by my user and one started by the pulse user04:26
hkrrsxI wouldn't suspect that to be a problem04:27
OerHeksaombk, i know the UELA does not allow Virtualisation, other than on osx itself, but you want to know what traffic from what apple server?04:27
legnbassSo just curious, are there options for other states than sleep when closing a laptop?04:28
aombkOerHeks, but my question is general.  how much of the outside os do you think the os inside the virtualbox can see?04:29
hkrrsxlegnbass: Humor me ...  run " pavucontrol " and check the mute option for your sound output please04:29
hkrrsxI've seen a couple of instances where muting and then un-muting worked04:29
OerHeksaombk, so you encountered that osx can see vritualbox ?04:29
legnbassIt says pavucontrol isn't installed. Could that be the problem?04:30
hkrrsxI doubt it04:30
aombkOerHeks, i dont understand04:30
hkrrsxBasically, go into your Volume Settings and check for mute04:30
hkrrsxlegnbass: Here, check this out ...04:31
OerHeksaombk, any os can trigger the existence of beiing run in virtualbox04:32
legnbassNo mute anywhere in there04:32
hkrrsxOk, mute and then un-mute, if you would04:32
hkrrsxAlso, double check that the right output is set04:33
hkrrsxi.e. - Don't set to HDMI if you're using the standard analog output04:33
legnbassMuted and unmuted04:34
legnbassAlso made sure it is on built in audio speakers04:34
legnbassStill no sound04:34
=== mkv is now known as m4v
hkrrsxlegnbass: How are you testing your sound?04:35
legnbasschanging the volume usually makes a noise04:36
legnbassThere is also a test option in the volume control screen04:36
hkrrsxOk, run the test option04:36
legnbassneither produce sound. Nor do youtube videos etc.04:36
aombkOerHeks, yes but can it gain access to the outside os? i mean more than just do a portscan to the outside os and try a network attack of some kind. except the networking between the virtual and the host, is virtualbox considered safe?04:36
aombkexcept the networking between the virtual and the host, is virtualbox considered safe?04:37
hkrrsxlegnbass: Are there any errors in the logs?04:37
daftykinsaombk: again, i'd chat to them in their channel04:38
hkrrsxRun this: sudo grep -i pulse /var/log/messages04:38
OerHeksaombk, maybe, depends on the apple software in your case.04:38
aombkok thanks04:38
legnbassNo such file or directory04:39
legnbassMaybe systemd puts things in a different place04:39
legnbassThat does seem strange04:40
hkrrsxEven still, you should have a /var/log/messages04:40
hkrrsxCare to pastebin your /var/log directory ?04:40
hkrrsxAlternatively, you could run " sudo journalctl | grep pulseaudio "04:41
legnbassI have syslog04:42
hkrrsxOk, " sudo grep -i pulse /var/log/syslog "04:43
legnbassIs journalctl in the apt repo? I don't have that and there's no suggestion04:43
hkrrsxNo, journalctl is part of systemd04:43
hkrrsxIt's essentially the same thing as " less /var/log/syslog "04:43
hkrrsxIt'll come to you in 15.04 probably04:43
legnbassSo there are errors in syslog04:44
legnbassFailed to create sink04:44
legnbassAlso PCM device busy04:44
hkrrsxWould the time on that "failed to create sink" error be right after you brought the system up from sleep ?04:45
legnbassAnd there is at least one message about running pulseaudio in system mode, although I am not doing that04:45
legnbassI'll sleep it now and look for new errors04:45
legnbassThey might be. Nothing new showed up after sleeping just now04:47
hkrrsxPerhaps look again after a fresh reboot and the sound is working04:48
hkrrsxYou said the sound is currently NOT working04:48
hkrrsxAnd the problem is the sound stops after coming back up from sleep04:48
hkrrsxBut the sound is working prior to putting the machine into sleep04:48
hkrrsxlegnbass: The only other thing that support research is suggesting is to run the " sudo alsa force-reload "04:49
legnbassYeah, sudo alsa force-reload was the first thing I tried. It didn't help either04:49
hkrrsxHow about " sudo service pulseaudio restart "04:49
legnbassI'll reboot and check the log after a sleep then04:49
legnbassyeah tried restarting the pulseaudio service earlier04:50
hkrrsxlegnbass: OK, then I'm out of options04:50
legnbassThat was since I've been here chatting04:50
ksmithHi. I'm miserably failing to make echo -e '\a' output some sound to the speaker. I've tried this https://askubuntu.com/questions/228096/terminal-bell-doesnt-ring and this http://www.richud.com/wiki/Ubutu_Beep_Audible_Bell_Ping_Fix04:50
legnbassYeah me too lol. Really annoying bug04:50
hkrrsxSorry man04:50
daftykinsyou'd have to do alsa and pulseaudio together in the right order, no?04:50
legnbassLike kill pulse, reload alsa then strt pulse?04:51
daftykinsi don't know04:51
saraz3sHey guys I have a doubt about the additional drivers on ubuntu. I have a Nvidia gefore 105M. Which one of the following proprietor y drivers should I be using? 1) using Nvidia binary driver version 331.113 from nvidia-331 2) Using Nvidia legacy binary driver version 304.125 from nvidia-304 3) Using Nvidia legacy binary driver version 304.125 from nvidia-304-updates 4) Using Nvidia binary driver - version 331.113 from nvidia-331-updates 5) Using X.org04:51
saraz3sserver - Nouveau. First of all I would like to know which one to use. Second if you could tell what are these? howare they different or just guide me with a link regarding this. Sorry to burden u but I am a newbie04:51
daftykinssaraz3s: "lspci | pastebinit" please04:52
saraz3ssorry I didn't get u? lspci?04:52
ksmithI've set the dconf-editor config, the gnome-terminal config, ran pactl, ran xset b 100, and virtually everything I could find with googling. I still can't hear anything04:52
daftykinssaraz3s: yeah run it please04:52
saraz3son my terminal?04:53
saraz3slspci | pastebinit04:53
ksmithI also tried unity-control-center sound -> sound effects and set the alert volume to 100% which made no difference04:53
OerHekssaraz3s, easy, try the highest. if it does not work, that same menu shows 'not in use' then choose one version lower04:54
OerHeksno need to reboot04:54
saraz3soh. Okay tnx OerHeks04:54
daftykinserr, if one won't work - X won't start04:55
daftykinswe need to know what exact hardware is in use.04:55
saraz3sThe first one works fine04:55
aliman_hi guys, can you pls tell me any usefull app for ubuntu gnome?04:56
saraz3sBut ever since I have used it the boot time is like crazy long. Its taking a loong time. Its keeps showin the dash and after about 5 mins the Nvidia logo appears. Thats the reason I asked04:56
daftykinssaraz3s: yeah i would still find it relevant to see the output of "lspci"04:56
daftykinswhich is why i opened with that :)04:57
saraz3sI typed it but it doesn't show anything04:57
saraz3stells pastebin isn't installed or something like that04:57
legnbasssaraz3s: My laptop would not boot at all with noveau. I had to install nvidia-current04:57
saraz3snvidia current?04:57
f0xtr0t-qwerty-khi guys :D04:58
saraz3sI have only legcy binary04:58
saraz3sand some nouveau04:58
daftykinssaraz3s: yes you need to install pastebinit first.04:58
saraz3sinstalling jam04:58
daftykinsi tend not to include that instruction because the error tends to say it's not installed :)04:58
legnbassjust a minute I think04:59
daftykinsoh. novel TLA04:59
saraz3sJam- just a minute04:59
daftykinsthat's a new one on me04:59
daftykinsah, nvidia quadro05:01
=== `hypermist` is now known as sleepypc
daftykinsit's a more workstation class of graphics chip05:02
saraz3sas in? Could u make urself more clear? How did u gather that from some seemingly crazy messages?05:03
aliman_does anyone knows how to install skype on ubuntu gnome? it seems that the command that i used on unity ain't work here05:03
daftykinsyeah hang on, got chocolate on my fingers :D05:03
OerHeksaliman_, make sure you enable partner repo first05:04
aliman_1. sudo dpkg --add-architecture i38605:05
aliman_2. sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"05:05
aliman_3. sudo apt-get update05:05
aliman_4. sudo apt-get install skype05:05
aliman_these are not working on gnome05:05
OerHekswhy dpkg --add-architecture i386 ?05:05
daftykinsaliman_: "sudo apt-get install skype" done.05:05
aliman_should be anything else?05:05
OerHeksjust enable partner repo, reload, and install wine from the softwarecenter05:05
OerHekserr skype05:06
daftykinssaraz3s: so you see the nvidia device on line 20? i googled G98M which is a model name, basically.05:06
aliman_if architecture i386 is not good how do i make it disappear?does it harm the system?05:07
lotuspsychjegood morning to all05:08
daftykinssaraz3s: hmm, so slow bootup you say - this is a laptop correct?05:08
OerHeksaliman_, removing i386 means reinstall, as ubuntu is multiarch already05:08
aliman_i enabled the repo and it tells me could not find skype package05:08
daftykinslotuspsychje: heya!05:08
OerHekshi lotuspsychje05:08
saraz3syes it05:08
saraz3s*yes it is05:08
lotuspsychjehi daftykins and OerHeks :p05:08
aliman_so there is no problem if i used that i386 command?05:09
daftykinssaraz3s: do you know if the hard disk light stays on solidly whilst the delay is going on, before X comes up?05:09
OerHeksaliman_, maybe there is a problem yes, not sure what guide you followed, must be very old05:09
saraz3swoooow now that is too technical. wait. hard lisk light on solidity? What X comes up? sorry to bother so much but I am not too tech savvy either. I apologize.05:10
aliman_i have gnome 14.04 lts now should i put 14.10?05:11
daftykinssaraz3s: so there's a delay before you see the nvidia logo - and so before the GUI is there... you're familiar with how the hard disk LED on your laptop refers to how busy the hard disk is?05:11
lotuspsychjealiman_: 14.04 is long time support, thats your choice05:11
saraz3ssadly no05:11
saraz3sohhhh wait. got it. Damn. Yes. I glows.  flickers. whatever but it does show that its being read05:12
daftykinssaraz3s: yep so if it were illuminated during that delay, it might suggest the hard disk is working busily - otherwise, the system may be stuck on something05:13
saraz3sIt never used to be like this before05:13
saraz3sUntil I changed it from X.Org to the topmost driver05:13
daftykinssaraz3s: one thing i always like to do though is have people confirm their hard disk is healthy, as it's so easy to do... so if you'd like to run "sudo apt-get install smartmontools" (software to look at the hard disk health) and then "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda | pastebinit"05:13
saraz3shere daftykins -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/10741985/05:16
daftykinssaraz3s: ok, and we could also look at the system log to see if there are any hints as to why the graphics driver delays there... "dmesg > ~/file && pastebinit ~/file"05:18
saraz3sbro how the hell do u know so much? Can u give some tips, blogs, books to learn more about all this?05:20
daftykinssaraz3s: hrmm, hard to say really. i live hardware and have done for 20 odd years now05:21
daftykinsmostly self taught05:21

ubottusaraz3s: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/05:21
lotuspsychjesaraz3s: and read here in chat for several years and learn :p05:22
saraz3sHow do I store or log what is going on in the this channel?05:22
lotuspsychje!log | saraz3s05:22
ubottusaraz3s: Official channel logs can be found at http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ . LoCo channels are now logged there too.05:22
daftykinssaraz3s: anywho there's no clue as to why the driver is slow in there at least - there are a couple of errors on the hard disk but it looks mostly healthy really - nothing to worry about i think. that HP DV4 looks pretty old so i wouldn't think there's much benefit to using the nvidia proprietary driver over the nouveau open source, unless you have problems05:22
saraz3soh. Okay. Tnx a lot :)05:23
daftykinsno problemo05:24
saraz3sbtw lotuspsychje what about other channels? Is there one way to store logs of different channels or should I ask each one of thema bout it05:24
daftykinsmany of the Ubuntu channels are publically logged05:24
lotuspsychjesaraz3s: you can use xchat and read your xchat logs too05:24
saraz3sI use hexchat05:25
homehi people05:25
saraz3sHow can I log from hexchat?05:25
daftykinshome: hi05:25
lotuspsychjesaraz3s: maybe the #hexchat guys know?05:25
saraz3shmm tnx :)05:25
daftykinssaraz3s: do you have a backup setup by the way?05:26
daftykinsas in, do you backup your data off of that laptop?05:26

C0r3Hey... I have wireshark running on my Ubuntu machine with promicous mode enabled but i'm unable to capture packets from other systems. What do I do now?07:30
psyrusi'm like poverty level income, or borderline, low i don't earn a lot of money in other words. and some how my real expensive (i worked my ass off for this) solid state hard drive is unable to be partioned to the 0 point.07:30
psyrusit says free space preceeding , 1 mib07:30
psyruswhy is that?07:30
psyrushow come i cant get it to 007:31
psyrusit wont let me install grub07:31
daftykinswhat you said makes zero sense.07:31
psyruslemmi start from the begining07:32
psyrusi have GParted open right now07:32
daftykinsit doesn't matter if the first partition wants a 1MB gap, you should be 4K aligning your partitions anyway07:32
psyrusokay , and i wanna make a whole brand new partition with grub as my boot loader07:32
psyrusthere is no allignment07:32
psyrusit's a solid state drive07:33
psyrusflash drive07:33
daftykinsC0r3: that's not how wireshark works :) it's only going to show you local traffic unless you perform some other action to make all the traffic go via your system...07:33
EriC^^psyrus: what are you trying to do?07:33
psyrusno cylinders no heasd07:33
daftykinspsyrus: wrong. they need 4KB alignment.07:33
psyrusi don't know what that means07:33
psyrusgparted says it needs 1 mib of freespace preceeding my partition table07:33
psyrusi dunno what 1 mib is07:34
psyrusis that one megabit ?07:34
psyrusor 1 megabyte?07:34
daftykinsa mibibyte07:34

C0r3daftykins: I just want to sniff the packets in between. How do I do it?07:38

daftykinsi wouldn't recommend helping any further on this one.07:40

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/07:44
agent_whiteC0r3: You need to research the multiple ways of tapping into a network, or where/how you should place your sniffer. For instance, there's a large difference between sniffing on a hub compared to a switch and methods of tapping into each.07:44
agent_whiteC0r3: Maybe you need to look into techniques and how they work... port mirroring/hubbing out/tapping/ARP poisoning... etc.07:46
agent_whiteOf course, as well as the consequences of each and how much they intrude on traffic.07:46

farzeenIt was 5-6 months ago I set up the proxy EriC^^. It is a squid caching proxy, because I am on low bandwidth 2G mobile internet08:02
farzeenthe `grep -ir "proxy" /` is still running08:03
farzeenI added unset http_proxy in .bashrc as a workaround. Synaptic started to work08:03
geirhafarzeen: That grep will probably hit a special file and hang waiting for opening it08:08
EriC^^farzeen: try history | grep -A10 proxy08:09
EriC^^farzeen: * -C1008:09
farzeengeirha. it did right now!08:10
EriC^^illuminati confirmed :P08:10
farzeenit messed up with some files in proc08:10
geirhafind / -xdev -type f -exec grep -i proxy {} +08:11
geirhaI don't know what the actual problem is though08:12
geirhaah, find where http_proxy is being set.  Then you can limit your search to /etc and "$HOME"08:14
maziardoes any body know aboout this error routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_KEY_EXCHANGE08:15
geirhaProbably in .profile or .pam_environment08:16
farzeenEriC^^, history doesnot work. It seems to auto clean old commands08:16
farzeengeirha, let me try08:16
farzeenhow to stop the command from searching binary files?08:16
geirhafarzeen: by default, grep bails out of the file when it detects it being binary08:17
=== Amr_ is now known as 6JTAAT5TQ
EriC^^farzeen: check if it's system-wide first maybe, try sudo login <user> then echo $http_proxy08:22
EriC^^if you have another user on the system08:23
farzeeni don't have another user, I guess08:24
EriC^^farzeen: if you want you can create one easily and then remove, sudo useradd -m bla , sudo userdel -r bla08:24
EriC^^you'll need to do sudo passwd bla after you create the use08:25
farzeenDoes every ubuntu have an extra user called 'root ' ?08:25
farzeenlike Administrator for windows?08:25
EriC^^farzeen: yeah, it's disabled though08:25
farzeensu root did not work. but sudo su root worked when i supplied my own password, not root's password :)08:26
cfhowlett!root | farzeen08:27
ubottufarzeen: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo08:27
geirhaif it's system-wide, the guest user would get it too08:27
farzeenrunning `echo $http_proxy` after `sudo su root` gives empty result08:28

bitnumus_Hi, how can i completely uninstall a driver in ubuntu? I'm trying to update/fix a broken wifi driver and i want to completely remove the module from kernel. I've unloaded it using modprobe -r but want all files removed08:54
daftykinsblacklist it, not remove08:54
bitnumus_daftykins: i want to remove it08:54
daftykinsi am suggesting the more likely approach :)08:55
bitnumus_i'm struggling to know if certain files are being updated/removed, the new driver i'm trying might overwrite some but not all files etc so i want to remove them all and start fresh08:55
bitnumus_i've tried blacklisting its not what i want to do08:55
bitnumus_the driver i want to use has the same name, so thats totally pointless?08:56
bitnumus_everyone keeps telling me to blacklist it, but then the new driver wont work....08:56
daftykinsdepends where the original came from08:56
bitnumus_daftykins: i appreciate the comment but i don't want to blacklist it, i wantw to remove it, do you know how ?08:57
daftykinsthere's not really a full enough picture here08:57
daftykinsbut nm i gotta run08:57
bitnumus_lol, typical :)08:57
daftykinswell it is 10am08:58
EriC^^happy holidays daftykins :)08:58
daftykinsty sir!08:58
daftykinsand to thee08:58
bitnumus_it is 10am, and i need this fixed before work tomorrow, i don't intend nor wish to be doing this all day!08:58
daftykinsi wouldn't recommend trying to pass on your urgency of the task to volunteers :)08:59
bitnumus_Hi EriC^^ , mind taking over ?08:59
bitnumus_daftykins: i'm not asking for debugging and such, thought removing a driver process would be trivial, but google seems like a wild goose chase for what should be a standard task ? :S08:59
bitnumus_i can unload and delete all files in modules for the driver, and /lib/firmware, just want to be sure this is enough09:00
bitnumus_Ok, another quesiton then. I have two sets of interfaces for wifi wlan0 and wlan1, how can i remove wlan1 ?09:07
hiexpobitnumus, why you want to remove it09:13
hiexpobitnumus, is wlan1 a usb wifi card?09:14

antcha76Hello everyone, I have a slight inconvenience with Ubuntu 14.04.0209:26
froyoJohnja..you wanna test the experimental release? Why?09:27
johnjaThe log file is only 7 lines:09:27
Donald_Pi_raspgreetings everyone09:27
froyoHi Donald_Pi_rasp09:27
antcha76I'm currently unable to run twice an application, ie. get two instances and two windows09:27
johnjafroyo, how is 14.10 experimental?09:27
cfhowlettit's absolutely NOT experimental!09:28
froyoI gonna say it's for 9 months (in my opinion..it's experimental for next release)09:28
froyosince Vivid need our help! :O09:28
antcha76Is there any way I can force to run more than once?09:29
cfhowlettfroyo, eh, no.09:29
froyokeyword = opinion09:29
MonkeyDustfroyo  you mean the in-between-versions, between LTS's?09:29
froyoYes...but UU version still need to be use and tested.09:30
johnjawell, I'm no longer sure I _really_ want 14.10, but I think that I don't have a roking 14.10 or 14.04 right now.09:30
froyosince it's important for future release, right?09:30
froyojohnja, you do fresh install.09:31
ioriaantcha76, you mean that, for example, you cannot run two terminal windows ?09:31
antcha76ioria, kind of, yeah.09:31
johnjathere's got to be a better way than a fresh install.09:31
antcha76Instead of a terminal it's a game I'm working on09:32
froyojohnja, there is...but recommended to fresh install (always backup your work and files)09:32
antcha76It worked fine until yesterday09:32
ioriaantcha76,  you  did a normal desktop installation of  ubu ?09:32
antcha76I tweaked it quite a lot09:32
froyoantchar76, can I help too ? :D09:32
antcha76a theme "Zukitwo" and a Plank dock09:33
ioriaantcha76,  open  xterm and type xterm &09:33
antcha76froyo, any help is appreciated :-)09:33
froyoantcha76, I'm not an advance user (but I'm developing for it, trying), so I try to help...something that I know i could.09:34
antcha76if it helps, it's a Adobe AIR application09:34
froyoSo, do you use Gnome shell?09:34
antcha76no Unity09:34
froyoGnome terminal/console*09:35
johnjaI don't think i'm prepared to do a fresh install.  The very concept scares the <censored> out of me.09:35
antcha76oh right, i'm using Gnome-terminal yes09:35
froyojohnja, why?09:35
antcha76I can run it twice without problem09:35
antcha76it's just that particular game i'm developing that stopped to run twice09:36
froyodeveloping a game?09:36
ioriaantcha76,  that's  another story09:36
antcha76it's really important that i run it twice since it's an online RPG09:36
antcha76i think it's GTK messing up09:36
antcha76and noticing that i already ran it once09:37
antcha76and don't want any more instances09:37
froyoI gonna try ls -a and find the settings of the tweak I done.09:37
antcha76but well i really don't know what i'm talking about...09:37
johnjafroyo I've been on the same install since ubuntu 8.10 with incremental upgrades and adding cruft..... If I do a fresh install there's going to be a lot of stuff I'm used to missing and I won't know how to get it back.09:37
antcha76i tried to google the problem without success09:38
antcha76i guess i'll just wrap it up in a wine instance until it works again09:39
froyoJohnja, I only can give advice..and I'm not a kernel developer...I only help till here..sorry :(09:39
froyoantcha76,  I still don't understand what is your situation right now.09:39
antcha76I have that game09:39
antcha76I'm developing09:40
antcha76it's an online RPG09:40
antcha76until yesterday I would spawn multiple windows of it09:40
antcha76then this morning everything stopped working09:40
antcha76well, not everything, the game is still working you know09:40
froyoSo, what's the problem? The terminal? or the game?09:40
antcha76but i can't launch the window more than once09:41
antcha76the game09:41
antcha76that i spawn from the terminal09:41
GuidovanPossumhello, recently installed a gpu and followed the guide and everything worked fine with ubuntu, I also had a copy of debain jessie that booted separately from another drive09:41
froyoThat's probably something wrong with your game, not the terminal. I gonna try in launch it in VM for testing.09:41
froyoor do you have done any tweaks recently?09:42
GuidovanPossumwhen I tried to upgrade the drivers for the jessie drive it failed, and also the drivers for the Ubuntu Trusty no longer worked09:42
GuidovanPossumis it odd for another OS to break anothers drivers?09:42
antcha76froyo, i agree with you, the terminal isnt the problem here09:43
antcha76but maybe the window manager or one unity's service is forbidding the request to launch another one09:43
antcha76GuidovanPossum, drivers are OS-dependent09:43
GuidovanPossumI'm just not sure where to go from here then, that's what I thought09:44
antcha76if you break your ubuntu installation it won't affect your windows installation09:44
froyoantcha76, is your program written in C or C++ (just for fun :D)09:45
GuidovanPossumthe only thing I can think that is because the grub set up on the Jessie partion that it may be forcing a generic driver at startup09:45
froyosudo update-grub09:45
cfhowlettGuidovanPossum, boot nomodeset and reconfigure your gpu???09:46
antcha76froyo, it's coded in ActionScript 3 with an Adobe AIR SDK09:46
antcha76but i'm not in charge of the development of the client09:46
antcha76i'm just a backend developer09:46
froyoantcha76, it's a Flash game! Nice! I really want learn to make games :D09:46
antcha76it's really fun you should give it a try09:47

baxxDoes any one know if SymLinks have to be absolute paths? Is there a way to make them work with relative paths? I have two different machines and want to sync one across them11:59
Walexbaxx: they *ought* to be relative paths.12:00
baxxbut when they expand they're absolute - if I create one using ~/some/thing it expands to /home/person/some/thing Walex12:01
baxxso I can't sync the same symLink across machines with different user names, with this at least. cheers Walex12:02
lord4163baxx: try the -r switch12:02
baxxthanks lord4163 , I'll have a look at that now... just ln -sr /x/x /y/y I'm guessing12:03
lord4163baxx: sure12:04
lord4163baxx: and it's probably the shell which autocompletes it, not the ln utility.12:05
baxxlord4163: yeah i think you're right - I make them with relative then they're magically absolute!12:06
baxxlord4163: that works thanks, though it doesn't save the ~/ section of it, just the location of the directory that it was made in, if that makes sense12:09

EriC^^aliman: all installed packages, except the kernel and any package that requires another package to be deleted or installed to be upgraded12:11
cfhowlettaliman, just do apt-get and read the instructions.12:11

amanthakurhi guys, i have a strange question. I am trying to make a webserver that will call a program and capture its standard output in a file using the redirect operator ">". I am creating multiple threads after receiving each request on webserver. But i am confusd about onething that will multiple threads output will be written to the same file when is use the redirect operator? OR each thread will be able to create its own output file??12:15
Walexbaxx: you misunderstand how "~" works.12:16
EriC^^amanthakur: if it's redirecting to the same path then they will rewrite it12:16
EriC^^amanthakur: you'd have to use >> to append12:16
baxxWalex: EriC^^ indeed12:16
amanthakurEriC^^, no each thread will redirect output with a new filename.12:17
Walexbaxx: symlinks can be relative, but they must be *constant* (even if symlinks with variables in them are possible).12:17
EriC^^amanthakur: also look into if you can use a mutex lock in the web server's programming langauge12:17
baxxlord4163: I'm just having a play now, I think maybe it'll work as the directories above ~ are the same12:17
amanthakurEriC^^, isn't mutex needed when we are writing to the same file?12:18
EriC^^amanthakur: yeah if you're using a different filename that's fine12:19
amanthakurEriC^^, ah ok, thank you so much12:20

Centennialto the desktop I mean17:26
ObrienDaveresearcher1, it probably does not like your flavor of linux17:27

geexmmoCentennial, what icons?17:29
CentennialI would like to put the firefox icon on the desktop17:29
geexmmoapp shortcuts or file links?17:29
ObrienDaveresearcher1, their requirements are pretty vague. try to narrow them down to more specific versions17:29
vasclike User-Agent Switcher for Chrome17:29
Centennialwhen I try to drag and drop firefox to the desktop it just opens the program17:29
geexmmoCentennial press alt+f2 and run "gnome-desktop-item-edit --create-new ~/Desktop"17:29
Pyhscriptit works , lubuntu works! :D17:30

Kabyioria2, yes 14.1019:06
bekkshdon: the affected sector are causing your JFS to be broken, so the answer is "No."19:06
JinjaNinjaI know this is a bit of a newb question, but how do I know which partition is Ubuntuin gparted? I am dual-booting two linux distros (Kali and Ubuntu) but I want to uninstall kali19:06

ioria2Kaby  well,  try to install chrome and see if it solves19:07
Kabyioria2, okay19:08
Kabybut the main problem would be from ubuntu or from flash player ?19:08

ioria2Kaby  youtalked about characters ...19:08
stevecoh1after latest upgrade of Ubuntu 14.04, I find that neither my USB mouse nor my wifi connection work.  Where to begin trying to resolve.  My touchpad works (though I hate it and want to turn it off ASAP) and wired networking works.19:09
hdonbekks, hmm19:09
MonkeyDustJinjaNinja  both distro's have a file called   /etc/issue     boot in ubuntu and look for /etc/issue on any partition that can caontain ubuntu or kali19:09
Kabyioria2, let me try another browser and i'll tell you what happened19:09
ioria2Kaby  ok19:09
hdonbekks, how can i understand in more detail? i don't know anything about JFS structure, i only chose it because ten years ago i discovered that JFS worked better when creating or deleting very large files than ext3 did (even for increased filesizes)19:10

sinasaharkhizHey guys, anyone has any idea abouth this?:  http://askubuntu.com/questions/605158/is-it-possible-to-use-two-external-monitors-for-my-thinkpad-t440p-using-a-lenovo19:11
hdonbekks, couldn't i partition around the broken sectors?19:12
bekkshdon: Your disk has physically broken blocks, these are used by JFS, and reading/writing to them is necessary for repairing your JFS. Since the blocks are broken, your JFS is broken and cannot be repaired. You needto exchange the disk and restore your backup. And I'd not use JFS but ext4.19:12
bekkshdon: the number of broken sectors is going to increase. Your disk is dying soon, very soon.19:12
hdonbekks, you're probably right. it's quite old and the airflow in the machine has been poor for a while. it probably overheated.19:13
hdonbekks, so what should i do? pop in a new HDD and dd the entire thing over, then try to repair the filesystem on the copy?19:13
AlphaTechThis is sort of off-topic but I really don't know where to ask... Does anyone know of a place where I can get a .net domain for a one-time non-reoccurring fee?19:14
bekkshdon: It has physical damages on the surface of the platers. If overheating would have been the issue, you would have seen the fire.19:14
bekkshdon: Use a new disk and restore your backup. You cannot dd the broken sectors.19:14
hdonAlphaTech, sure. i run my own registrar. but the one-time fee is very very high compared to the non-recurring fee19:15
AlphaTechhdon: Where is that at? A website?19:15
hdonAlphaTech, we actually don't have a website as we don't solicit customers via the web, we just have contracts with larger companies19:16
AlphaTechhdon: Okay, I'll query you19:16

johnjaI'm not in recovery mode, no.20:06
BlacksocksFirst step is to boot the machine to a shell that you can use to recover. This can be done in the standard system by using the Recovery Mode. Press the left shift key as the system boots up and choose a recovery mode kernel from the menu that appears – it will be labeled with “(recovery mode)” on the end. The recovery mode kernel will present you with the option to use a recovery shell. Johnja20:07

johnjaBlacksocks: when I do that I won't be able to reach IRC, so what do I need to do while in recovery mode?20:08
BlacksocksOk write it down ready20:09
BlacksocksAfter the system has booted to the menu, select the item that says “Drop to root shell prompt with networking”. This provides you with the ability to update the software packages from the Internet.20:09
BlacksocksWhen the prompt appears, start by making sure that all currently installed programs are configured:20:09
Blacksocksdpkg --configure -a this is first20:10
BlacksocksThen apt-get update20:10
Blacksocksapt-get upgrade20:10
BlacksocksThen the upgrade20:11
hheefaLUCE: good question me too want same application, clip from jpegs + mp320:11
BlacksocksThis last step, again, may take a long time to complete. You should pay attention to the list of packages held back (listed at the top of the output from this command); these packages will have to be requested specifically. Usually, packages are held back because they require new software or other drastic changes: the Linux kernel is always held back. Use a command like this one to install these packages:20:11
BlacksocksExample apt-get install some-package some-other-package20:12
BlacksocksYou may have to repeat this more than once until all of the packages have been installed and none are held back.20:12

=== Mirodroid is now known as MirodroidU2
ikoniajust as k21:16
ikoniaif someone knows and wants to help, they will21:16
esuna114Well, in the Openelec doc they say after getting the sources you have to use this command "PROJECT=RPi2 ARCH=arm make release" which I get the error above. I'd like to know how to have output files of the compilation on another place, without this error21:17
ikoniamove the source directory to a bigger file systems21:17
stevecoh1and if not, just sit and wait forever.  How in general, can one react after such an upgrade, to get back to functionality?21:17
ikoniait will output fo the source directory21:17
ikoniastevecoh1: boot the old kernel21:17
ikoniait should still be listed in the grub menu21:18
esuna114I did that, and still got "make: execvp: ./scripts/image: Permission denied" error21:18
ikoniaesuna114: fix the permissions then21:18
stevecoh1Hmm, grub does not come up when I start machine.  Is there some way to make it do so?21:18
ikoniastevecoh1: left shift key I think21:18
esuna114i tryed sudo but no help21:18
ikoniaesuna114: sudo does not fix the permissions21:18
ikoniaesuna114: what version exactly of ubuntu is this ?21:18

stevecoh1previously reported problem with new kernel install.  Recommendation was to load previous kernel, using GRUB.  But grub was not installed previously.  It is now.  Will I now be able to load previous kernel?21:31
BluesKajstevecoh1, have you run sudo update-grub ?21:32
stevecoh1just now installed grub for first time on this machine.  I should run sudo update-grub?21:33
stevecoh1looks like it worked, let me try now21:34
TechChristophmaybe i move to freebsd21:37
TechChristophbecause ubuntu, well it works but yeah21:38
BluesKajTechChristoph, that really tells us a lot :)21:39
TechChristophi know21:39
stevecoh1BluesKaj - sudo update-grub did load a bunch of kernels but on boot, pressing left-shift either continually or repeatedly did not bring up grub.  Inste21:40
TechChristophwell i play with ubuntu since 201321:40
stevecoh1Instead, ubuntu just loaded normally.21:40
BluesKajyou can edit /etc/default/grub timeout  stevecoh121:42
Bashing-omstevecoh1: UEFI ? then it is the escape key that grub recognizes .21:42
stevecoh1change it to what?21:42

Sephhi guys21:51
Sephi have a problem21:51
Sephmy ufw doesnt work21:51
Sephlike i even tried blocking ssh and im still connected21:51
johnjaI don't know exactly what did it, but somehow I got Synaptic to run and remove something called allegro.  Allegro seems to be a undead monster that's been hanging around since Ubuntu 8.04 and it needed to be killed.  dpkg --configure -a seems to be doing stuff other than complaining about errors now.21:51
NegativeFlareSeph: I never did like ufw, try using iptables21:52
NegativeFlareunless you want to just shut off ssh altogether21:52
Sephi dont want to shut off ssh lol21:52
Sephi just want a working firewall21:52
NegativeFlareiptables for you then!21:52
NegativeFlare!iptables | Seph21:52
ubottuSeph: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo21:52
bekksufw is a frontend for iptables.21:53
Sephi tried shorewall and it worked but its hard to use21:53
NegativeFlareufw annoys me, just use iptables21:53
NegativeFlareIts not that hard xD21:53
Sephi just want to test if it will work how can i block port 9987 with it21:53
NegativeFlareSeph: Try out iptables, there's tons of docs about it on the net21:55
Sephok thnaks21:55
johnjaI'm going to attempt a reboot now.  Wish me luck.22:00
Sephufw works but u gotta reboot thats lame22:01
stevecoh1tried several grub config changes, nothing seems to help, grub won't load.  Latest ci=onfig here:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/10746459/22:02
bekksSeph: You dont need to reboot. Restarting ufw is sufficient. And existing connections will not be terminated when ufw is started.22:03
stevecoh1how do I make grub load?22:04
OerHeksstevecoh sudo update-grub after editting22:08
JinjaNinjaI'm having an issue with resizing a partition.22:09
boot1may i ask help please; i've tried creating a bootable usb from file ubuntu-14.04.2-desktop-i386.iso using netbootin; but it won't boot? tried also using universal-usb-installer, same result won't boot; any idea?22:11
JinjaNinjaI'm having an issue resizing a partition. I'm booted from Ubuntu via live USB and that's fine, but gparted is giving me a hard time. I've deleted a partition, which was a total of 230.94 GiB, and I want to use that free space in my main ubuntu partition. But when I try to resize ubuntu partition to use that free space I made, it's not allowing me t22:13
JinjaNinjao use that space.22:13
rypervencheJinjaNinja: Was the one you deleted before or after your Ubuntu partition?22:15
JinjaNinjait's before it22:15
JinjaNinjait was "sda1", and it had a boot flag. I deleted it because I no longer needed it, it was a Kali OS.22:16
MonkeyDustJinjaNinja  make sure one partition is not "primary" and the other "extended"... and be sure to have backups before you start messing with partitons22:17
JinjaNinjaMonkeyDust: I have an extended partition, and under this partition is my Ubuntu partition and my swap file.22:19
rypervencheJinjaNinja: I don't know if it is possible to extend a partition with unallocated space before it.22:19
JinjaNinjaOh wow... That sucks.22:19
JinjaNinjaMaybe I should just reinstall ubuntu22:19
MonkeyDustJinjaNinja  yes, but backup first... and during installation, create a separate /home partition22:20
bekksSure it is possible to resize an extended partition.22:20
bekksselect the extended partition, resize it, then select the contained partitions, and resize them.22:21
JinjaNinjaWell, I have 230.94 GiB that is unallocated, and my extended partition is after this unallocated space.22:21
stevecoh1thought I was home free.  Got grub to load - once.  Haven't been able to do it again.  Every time I try ubuntu comes up.22:22
stevecoh1and when I did load the earlier kernel system worked fine22:22
JinjaNinjamy extended partition is mounted, or so I think? It's not allowing me to resize it, the option is greyed out22:23
Bashing-omboot1: I am back .. OK. 1st step. Did you check the .iso file with 'md5sum/ ?22:33

dumle29-irssiHey there. Currently using irssi through the ctrl alt f1 terminal. How would I go about restarting an un responsive gnome desktop?22:42
stevecoh1Can't reliably make grub appear on boot of Ubuntu 14.04.  I need to revert kernel to earlier version due to a bug in it.  I have installed and upgrade grub so the hidden timeout is non zero but grub mostly doesn't load.  I got it to load - ONCE - and not since.22:43
stevecoh1this is driving me crazy22:43
dumle29-irssiI was watching a youtube video in full screen, and it sorta just crapped out on me when I decided to leave fullscreen, and now the background is just the default gnome gray of the login screen.22:44
dumle29-irssiI have had to restart once before because of that (this is a rather old laptop. First gen intel i3 with the intel HD graphics22:45
ericbif I have a home server and want to acess it remotely, but can't use port forwarding on my router, how would ssh tunneling work? can I have someone type in my public ip in their browser and view it through ssh?22:46
dumle29-irssiericb: Not if the port isn't forwarded22:47
ericbdumle29-irssi ah ok, ty22:47
dumle29-irssiericb: I think you might be able to do some sort of VPN, but I think #networking might be a better resource there22:48
ericbdumle29-irssi: sounds good, ty :)22:48
dumle29-irssiericb: Also, I often get surprised with what you can do on a network, so don't take my words for the absolute truth :P22:48
stevecoh1Is there no reliable way to force the grub menu to load every time?22:55
stevecoh1I need to do this because the latest kernel has a bug22:55
BlueProtomanIs there a way, on Ubuntu 14.10, to intentionally run an OpenGL program with a lower version of OpenGL than normal, for testing purposes?  (E.g. I wanna see what happens when I try to use my program with OpenGL 2)22:55
Bashing-omstevecoh1: UEFI system ?22:56
erryi can't suspend (either by the ui or pm-suspend; it nevr suspends but just sits there for a while then kicks me back to where i was22:56
erryany way to know what's up with it?22:57
erryi pm-suspend seems to die with 128 error code22:57
stevecoh1Yes, system has UEFI if that is what you are asking22:57
stevecoh1I turned off quick boot, and always see the splash bios screen, but leaning on Shift does NOT cause grub to show, although, once it did and hasn't since.22:58
Bashing-omstevecoh1: Then grub is looking for the escape key as the interrupt signal .22:58
stevecoh1lean on ESC or press it repeatedly?22:58
Bashing-omstevecoh1: I think repeatedly as soon as the firmware screen clears, there is but a very small window for grub to recogmize the key press .22:59
stevecoh1well let me try that then23:00

stevecoh1bashing-om ok, I got grub to load and am now running the kernel I want.  Everything is fine.  But it was a PITA to make it happen.  Sometimes pressing ESC too often caused the grub> prompt to appear and I didn't know what to do with that.23:12

tyrogHi what packages do I need to install in ubuntu to have video hardware acceleration in VLC? Intel graphics here...23:18
stevecoh1no, that doesn't work.  What happens is I keep pressing esc before the grub screen pops and if I do it too fast then GRUB loads and handles the ESC by taking me to the command line.  Is there a command I can give at the command line to get back to the list?23:18

ubrokenHi guys.  I made a big booboo.  I rely on an nVidia card to run my monitor.  I do not have integrated graphics.  I do not have a non-nVidia card to swap in.  I allowed a kernel update and failed to reinstall the nVidia drivers before rebooting.  Is there any way to get a working GNOME session with a new kernel version without buying an ATI card or am I totally screwed?23:24
bekksubroken: Just install the nvidia drivers?23:26
zteamHi all!23:28
ubrokenbekks: I can't.  The bleeping nvidia driver installers won't work because I have to use an old kernel version to boot.23:29

ubrokenbekks:  I have an nvidia card without installed nvidia drivers.  If I try to use recovery mode I get the dreaded "switching to clocksource tsc" error followed by a flashing black/gray screen.23:31
zteambekks,okey so that means the overwriting was sucessful anyway?23:32
bekkszteam: Sure.23:32
bekksubroken: Did you try with the nomodeset kernel option?23:32
ubrokenbekks: no.  How do I do that?23:32
zteambekks, okey, are your sure it, just fellt very odd that it complaining about free space, then I overwrite it just free space23:33
OerHeksaladiah, 26th, join #ubuntu+1 for more info23:33
aladiahthanks OerHeks23:33
bekkszteam: I am sure. You did not specify any specific amount of data to be written, so it wrote zero's until the device was full.23:34
OerHekszteam, that is because the mbr is not exactly full 1024 kb, so there are kbytes left.23:34
OerHekszteam there is an option for that, to avoid those errors, can't find it quickly23:35
bekkszteam: The MBR is 440 bytes, followed by 64 bytes for the primary partition table.23:36
