acz32daniel31: many would argue HDDs are much more secure than SSDs, if you care00:00
daftykinssounds like a dubious claim to me00:00
acz32daftykins: what is known is that securely erasing SSDs isn't trivial like it is with HDD00:01
daftykinsthat is not the same as your first statement00:02
daftykinsalso, i bet you'd have the same troubles trying to secure erase both types00:02
acz32daniel31: you should copy your home directory so you can move it onto the SSD00:02
bazhangthis sounds like a good discussion for the offtopic channel00:02
daftykinsexcept that i am both going to bed and not going to join that, so there's no need to tell regulars the rules :)00:02
EriC^^daniel31: you should copy the files unencrypted from your home dir to a backup location, along with the list of manually installed packages00:02
SchrodingersScatI heard it's harder to recover from an SSD, sounds like a security plus.  daniel31 I would start with a backup, I'm running mine now, I'm in a similar position.00:03
petrvsI heard ssds cause cancer00:03
acz32daftykins: erasing an HDD is easy, you just have to wait a long time00:03
petrvsbut in reality they just give you faster access00:03
petrvsacz32: not that long00:03
daftykinsacz32: please take note of the off topic warning.00:03
aaandersei see a package called totem-mozilla in utopic and previous releases, this package doesn't exist in vivid... where is the best place to ask why it doesn't exist anymore? "ubuntu developers" are lested as the maintainer00:03
acz32petrvs: depends on the size of the disk, of course00:03
daftykinsalso, i cannot continue this conversation as i am leaving :)00:03
acz32daftykins: bye00:04
daniel31I see. Thanks for the input guys. Is there no easy way to access the encrypted files if I know the password then? Why not just boot back into the HDD (connected over USB) and copy the files to the SSD after the new distro is installed?00:08
petrvsacz32: well, the larger the disk, likely the more ram & proc powe you have, and consequently the faster the wipe, too00:08
petrvsnot necessarily, though, of course00:09
petrvsbut mostly, there is rarely a reason to wipe a disk00:09
daniel31As it happens, I need the SSD for speed (I am a photography and a software developer). The encryption is nice against the threats I face, but it's hardly a life-or-death situation. :-)00:09
petrvsusually the case =)00:10
petrvsI missed the beginning of your issue, though00:10
acz32daniel31: like we said, just back up /home and copy it onto the SSD after you re-install the OS00:14
daniel31thanks guys :-)00:14
acz32daniel31: so you are creating /home on the SSD?00:16
acz32is it that big. i think most people put /root on there and /home on a HDD00:16
daniel31well its 256gb. I intend to have the entire OS on it since its my laptop I cant really have two. the old HDD will be retired into a backup medium and media/large file storage over usb.00:17
acz32256GB. nice00:18
daniel31I really want to be able to mount my old encrypted home temporarily in my new install. not sure if thats possible tho.00:18
acz32daniel31: yes, it is. some file managers even handle that if you click on an encrypted volume00:18
daniel31thats good to know acz32. no need to backup the encrypted key or some thing like that then? all I need is my user password?00:19
=== q-bert is now known as hubert-
=== DarkDevil is now known as darkdevil
acz32daniel31: if you're ok mounting from commandline if your file manager doesn't pop up a nice GUI dialog, then sure00:20
voidDotClassMy dock is really annoying, i've set it to auto hide and show when i move mouse to left, sensitivity at max, but i still have to move my mouse at least 3-4 times before it finally shows00:21
voidDotClassis there a trick i'm missing, or can i use a keyboard shortcut for showing it00:21
daniel31thanks acz32. thats all I need to know I think. off to bed now. bye guys!00:23

kazdaxHi i like to install Ubuntu .. I have windows installed and i want to install vai the network01:01
petrvskazdax: why via the network01:01
kazdaxwhat are the steps i should take to install ubuntu over the network and i dont have a parition already ..so i need to make a partition01:01
petrvsmmm, making a partition _can_ be tedious01:02
petrvsit _can_ also be not 100% safe01:02
petrvsit's infinitely simpler to buy another disk, if you can afford it01:02
petrvsyou'll need the extra storage eventually anyway01:02
kazdaxIts a laptop01:02
petrvshow tedious =)01:02
kazdaxand i installed my windows right now with a netork01:02
petrvswell, to properly resize partitions with Windows preinstalled01:02
kazdaxso i was not able to make partitions01:02
petrvsyou really need to make sure the filesystems are defragmented01:02
petrvsand then resize01:03
petrvsand then fsck01:03
petrvsand then proceed with Ubuntu installation01:03
petrvsand before all that you should make a backup of anything you can't live without01:03
petrvsfsck, FS check01:03
petrvspenos: almost =)01:03
petrvsUnix hackers of yore didn't like typing01:03
petrvsplus they _did_ like commands and names that resembled naughty words01:03
kazdaxcan i do this all without a DVD01:04
kazdaxuse like a USB drive01:04
kazdaxto repartition the disk01:04
petrvskazdax: you can, yes01:05
kazdaxand the ubuntu install over a netowrk ..do i mount the DVD and then share the drive01:05
Ben64kazdax: you can install ubuntu from a usb disk01:05
petrvsyou can install over the network, too01:05
petrvsbut you need to figure out the partitioning/resizing first01:05
kazdaxnetwork is faster01:05
Ben64network is not faster01:05
petrvsnetwork is faster if you already know how to do it01:05
petrvsbut you don't =)01:05
kazdaxwell for windows..i just shared the ISO over a netowrk01:05
kazdaxand executed it from the network01:05
kazdaxand it just did everything else ..i assume ubuntu does the same01:06
kazdaxso defragment the hardisk and then use fsck ?01:06
kazdaxI dont want to use windows anymore ..it gives me so many problems01:06
Ben64kazdax: write the ubuntu iso to a usb drive, boot it, install, done01:07
kazdaxI rather use ubuntu01:07
kazdaxBen64 yes i will do USB01:07
kazdaxbut i need to repartition the disk01:07
kazdaxso i can install it01:07
Ben64kazdax: the installer does that01:08
kazdaxohh ?01:08
kazdaxso all i need is an ubuntu ISO and i can resize it within ?01:08
kazdaxis the rezise thing hard to do ?01:08
kazdaxit comes up when it ask whatt partition i was to install it on01:09
kazdaxso it has an option that says resize01:09
Ben64it gives you a few options, try it and see01:09
kazdaxi am asking because when i start doing it ..i dont have another computer to chat online and ask questions01:09
kazdaxokay one more question .. The network install isnt as easy as mounting the ISO and sharing it and then executing setup from the computer ?01:10
kazdaxjust wondering if i can do a network insall ..if not ill be doing USB01:10
kazdaxone more question ..how to get ubuntu on the USB drive ?01:10
Ben64!usb | kazdax01:11
ubottukazdax: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent01:11
kazdaxthanks man01:11
kazdaxokay one more question ..does anyone of you use netflix on ubuntu ?01:11
kazdaxi think silverlight is microsoft windows only01:12
ubottuIf you use Netflix, there is an unofficial solution for using it in Ubuntu detailed in http://www.compholio.com/netflix-desktop/ - bug reports in https://bugs.launchpad.net/netflix-desktop01:12
petrvsnetflix actually supports so-called "HTML5" video now01:13
petrvsyou mostly just need a recent browser version01:13
xanguayou need google chrome01:13
petrvssimpler with chrome, yeah01:13
xanguathat ships with drm  ;) not just any browsers01:13
petrvsthat is the magic of the word mostly =)01:13
kazdaxokay what about after installing ubuntu ..will my ethernet work and wireless or do i need drivers for that ?01:14
kazdaxnevermind .. i think people have tried installing on this machine and it worked for hem01:14
kazdaxI will start using ubuntu for everything01:15
kazdaxI dont play window games anyways01:15
kazdaxI usually use it for reading PDF , watching netflix and listening to music01:15
kazdaxso i think ubuntu can do all that without much hassle01:15
petrvskazdax: ten'll get you twenty it'll all just work01:15
petrvsif it doesn't, you can fix it01:15
petrvsyeah it can do all that01:16
petrvsit can even let you play most win32 games01:16
kazdaxokay ...what if i wanted to access windows paritition from ubuntu ?01:16
kazdaxfor example my C drive ..when i am in ubuntu01:16
kazdaxcan i save and read from that drive ?01:16
kazdaxeven if it is NTFS01:17
petrvskazdax: yup01:17
kazdaxbecause i want to give my ubuntu ..half of the drive .. and if my ubuntu gets filled up use my windows Drive as a backup01:17
petrvsyou can also do the reverse, if you want01:17
kazdaxokay cool01:18
kazdaxthere used to be a time when this was not possible01:18
petrvsyeah I guess01:18
petrvsmaybe 15 years ago =)01:18
petrvsthings to progress, however slowly =)01:19
kazdaxokay whats step 3 persistence .. the value i need to add there01:22
kazdaxthere is nothing about it on the ubuntu site you guys gave me01:22
kazdaxits USB creator01:22
kazdaxis persistence meaning how much space the ISO is01:24
kazdaxbecause its right now at zero and says live mode only01:24
Ben64kazdax: no, its so changes you do to the live system will remain01:24
petrvskazdax: you don't need persistence01:24
kazdaxahh i see01:24
kazdaxmy USB is much slower than my netowrk01:25
kazdaxThe usb goes at 6 mb per secound ...my netowrk does 40 mb per secound01:26
Ben64it would be done already if you just used the usb already01:26
petrvspretty sure there are more steps for a network install01:26
petrvs_after_ you understand them01:27
* petrvs shrugs01:27
kazdaxi think with network install..i wont be able to repartition as on a usb wih the inbuilt ubuntu tools01:27
petrvsdunno about that, but I do think it'd take longer01:27
kazdaxmy USB could be messed up01:27
petrvscould be01:28
petrvsprobably isn't01:28
kazdax6 mb secound ?01:28
kazdaxits to slow01:28
kazdaxisnt it ?01:28
kazdaxi see01:29
kazdaxokay i am going ahead and installing ubuntu ..i will come back using it for irc01:33
kazdaxthanks alot guys .if any problems ill get back to you guys01:33

petrvsfor netflix, you can use chrome if you want02:13
xxtjaxxupdate/refresh first. It has to fetch the index of the multiverse before it can give it to you02:13
petrvsthat is the path of least resistance02:13
xxtjaxxOh they enabled <video>?02:13
kazdaxeven for other flash things ?02:13
petrvsxxtjaxx: something like that02:13
kazdaxi want to do speed test ..so i need flash for it02:13
petrvskazdax: yes, actually02:13

petrvsdifferent issue =)02:13
kazdaxhow do i get flash for firefox ?02:14
xxtjaxxI like it(developer over here...)02:14
kazdaxalso should i update the site to the repository for softwares ?02:14
xxtjaxxman have I not done FOSS Desktop support in a while...02:14
kazdaxi heard doing that .. increases speed for downloads of software02:14
kazdaxwell previously when i downloaded ubuntu and installed it02:15
kazdaxthe downloads from the software center were very slow02:15
kazdaxso some guy said ..upload the repository links and it worked02:15

petrvsyou need an enduring download02:21
kazdaxokay ill try downloading a torrent with alot of seeds..and see if it reaches 7 mbs02:22

notaeonhave done02:24

kazdaxso the speed test could be less on the ubuntu but if i did a torrent download..it should show u the same seed ?02:26
petrvskazdax: probably trivially less unreliable a test, sue02:26

kazdaxokay i reached 6.502:28
codepython777notaeon: yes, preferably using thunderbolt. Does anyone know if that works on a mac?02:28
kazdaxi guess you were riht02:28
Slowboatgood luck booting ubuntu from an external drive for mac. you're better off burning to a DVD02:29
notaeoncodepython777: no idea, but usually there are different key combos at boot to loadf from usb/firewire/network etc02:29
notaeoncodepython777: if the install iso is booted from the ssd, i don't see why that would be different from any other flash medium. but doing it from thunderbolt depends on whether the mac efi supports that02:32

mccHi... I this morning told my Ubuntu 10.04 VPS (I would like to upgrade to another distro next...) to apt-get upgrade. A few minutes later, something happened, I don't know what, and services weren't running anymore. When I did apt-get upgrade again, I get: "dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem". When I type that, I get "read-only file system".02:56
mccThe filesystem is indeed mounted read only. I do not know what to make of this.02:56
Ben64mcc: sounds like a filesystem error, or hard drive error, or both02:56
mccHard drive error would be unusual because I am on a rackspace VM. Or whoever owns them now.02:57

Services like Firefox Sync or duolingo.com won't work on Ubuntu at all, while they work just fine on Windows, with the same connection! What could be the problem?08:42

quixtrijntje, if you read my message, you will see that more then one service is being affected on Ubuntu....08:43
quixso I think the problem is in how my Internet is configured on Ubuntu08:44

hateballquix: how did you ignore it? using sysctl?08:46
Folatttwo different boots ending up with the same issue.08:46
quixusing the network gui08:46
hateballquix: you could try this "sudo sysctl -w net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6=1"08:46
hateballthat will disable it for until you reboot08:46
hateballYou may need to restart the applications so they re-bind08:47

AlexisBRENONHi all. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm not able to do any admin task in a graphical way (software center, shutdown, user & groups system settings). Nevertheless, I can use 'sudo' in CLI. Have you got any idea to how to fix this ?09:36
centrixk1l_: Ok. Simpleir ... I can switch to root, but have no physical access to the machine nor an influence on the officials to allow me an internet hookup. Nor have I the permission to upgrade ... etc. So, is it possible or not?09:37
cage_raphelAlexisBRENON,  pls use sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao .. then .. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install power-commands09:38
Seveascentrix: you can download the packages on another machine and transfer them manually. But don't count on support here for obsolete, unsupported releases.09:38

Seveascentrix: pieve of advice is to upgrade :)09:43
kn1ghtSeveas, can you elaborate? Does it mean that if I try this exploit it will not work? Because I, as a user, will not be able to reset the time? or because sudo doesn't keep /var/log/auth.log?09:43
DarsVaedais there a clipboard that can change copied text, like make it all lowercase?09:44
Seveaskn1ght: what I mean is that the premise is ridiculous. If you can't count on people with admin rights locking their screens, this is just one of a thousand ways of abusing that.09:44

Folattbojan, yeah sorry, just a sec09:46

XenophonFit's set up to dual (duel!) boot, so there's an EFI partition, an HFS+ partition, an EXT2 /boot, and a LUKS partition12:45
XenophonFoh, there's another HFS+ partition in between the first HFS+ one and the EXT2 /boot for recovery12:46
XenophonFi have rEFInd installed on the EFI partition - it supplants the Apple boot manager, and it can boot Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, etc.12:46
MonkeyDustXenophonF  summarize that or show a screenshot/paste12:47
RoryIt's going to be difficult to do this reliably with a torrent. Can you test with a large, single file over HTTP?12:47
capsicumHi, been trying to install 14.04.2 server from usb but getting bad cd rom erro.12:47
XenophonFit's all in the gist i just posted12:47
Rorykazdax: Here's a 100 meg file on a gigabit connection http://flashheart.rory.sh/100-meg.txt12:47
XenophonFactually, i've got a detailed install procedure12:47
XenophonFproblem is, when i boot it drops me into the initrd and goes no further12:47
Rorykazdax: Because my hunch is still that there isn't actually a difference and it's still just coincidence12:48
XenophonFi suspect that the LUKS stuff isn't right, but i'm not sure where to look in the initrd config12:48
RoryXenophonF: This is a bit out of my remit, and I don't want to incorrectly advise you and hose your bootloader12:48
kazdaxRory its working fine now12:48
XenophonFlike, i can give the correct kernel command line to rEFInd - so maybe grub is unnecessary12:48
XenophonFbut once it loads up the initrc, LUKS isn't prompting me for the root container password12:49
XenophonFRory: the machine's a dev box so i'm not worried about hosing it :)12:49
RoryI think Grub is aware of LUKS, and it's Grub that handles the asking for the password (but I might be wrong)12:49
jpdsRory: Not by default.12:49
jpdsRory: GRUB knows about initramfs.12:50
jpdsRory: And initramfs knows about LUKS.12:50
RoryI'm basing that purely off remembering seeing some LUKS stuff in a grub config file.12:50
Roryyes jpds that sounds more likely12:50
XenophonFyeah, initramfs is supposed to handle the LUKS stuff12:50
XenophonFso i have an unencrypted boot volume that has the kernel and initrd images on it12:50
XenophonFand rEFInd can see those without any difficulty12:51
XenophonFhm, i think part of my config can be streamlined12:52
XenophonFe.g., the zfs pool can refer to the dm devices directly, not sure why i need to alias those again12:52
XenophonFbut still, not sure where in the initramfs configs i need to tweak the luks bits12:53
capsicumteam, cant get 14.04.2 x64 to boot from usb. keep getting error Failed to copy file from CD-ROM Retry?12:53
k1l_capsicum: how did you make that live-usb?12:53
k1l_capsicum: did you check the md5sum?12:53
capsicumtried new usb, tried changing bios to windows 7 os, downloaded image again. nothing works.12:54
Rorycapsicum: you need to (a) check that the image you downloaded is correct, and (b) check that it was copied to the flash drive correctly12:54
RoryOh OK12:54
Rorycapsicum: What are you using to make the usb?12:54
capsicumI do an md5 check on the iso again.12:54
lotuspsychjecapsicum: did you put bios to usb boot first?12:54
Rorycapsicum: At what point in the process is the error displayed?12:55
capsicumused the F12 and selected the usb12:55
XenophonFi added a file to /etc/initramfs/conf.d called "root0" (the alias for my luks container)12:55
XenophonFmaybe that bit is wrong12:55
XenophonFit also looks like the initramfs scripts expect the zfspool to be called "rpool" instead of tank, which is what i named it12:56
lotuspsychjecapsicum: can you anwser what k1l_ asked, how did you make the usb12:57
MonkeyDustilham  it works, we see you12:57
ilhami dont now12:58

UmeaboyWhat do I do to install libXi.so.6 in 15.04 for x86_64? I used this guide to make a bootable USB drive with Windows 7 on it, but failed so I therefor searched and found this old page to fix it: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/create-bootable-windows-7-usb-drive.html13:02
neldogzAnyone experiencing trouble booting their 15.04 system on Software Raid? Every 3rd or 4th boot systemd is getting hung at what appears to be when attempting to load the disks. Then I see an error stating Task dump error then iterates through each CPU13:02

Umeaboysudo service mysql start13:03
rydzykjeUmeaboy: im on root acc, doesnt matter13:03
rydzykjethat's why it's strange..13:04
MrElendigso fix the permission on the log files13:04

MrElendigeither directly or trough group13:04
Umeaboychown 775 /var/log/mysqld.log13:04
MrElendigdon't do that13:04
UmeaboyI always do that.13:04
UmeaboyNo problem doing so.13:05
Umeaboy664 then?13:05
MrElendigrandom users should not have access to the logs13:05
MrElendigat all13:05
UmeaboyThen chown username /var/log/mysqld.log13:05
Umeaboysudo first thou.13:05
Umeaboyneldogz: Could be the reason for it.13:06
UmeaboyCheck if you get the same problem with another filsystem.13:06
rydzykjehello guys, I have problem with starting MYSQL - when i write "service mysql start" im getting /var/log/mysqld.log: permission denied (and few others permission denied for log files in usr/bin and var/log), any ideas why?13:06
MrElendiggind out whihc user mysql runs as, and chown/mod so that that user have write access13:06
Umeaboyrydzykje: We told you already.13:06
orogoris there any important issues left in the last realease ? is now a good time to upgrade or should i wait some more ?13:06
MrElendigrydzykje: >_>13:07
neldogzUmeaboy, I cant change the file system. It is the filesystem Ubuntu is installed on. I had the exact same setup on Ubuntu 14.10 and no issues13:07
Umeaboyorogor: You should always update to stable releases unless you really have a broken system already.13:07
Umeaboyneldogz: OK. You have any backups saved to check the changes?13:08
MonkeyDustor stick to LTS13:08
k1l_orogor: what ubuntu version are you on?13:08
UmeaboyI have minor crashes in 15.04 so I'm not complaining.13:08
neldogzUmeaboy, which changes are you referring to?13:09
=== daftykin1 is now known as daftykins
k1l_orogor: you got 3month to upgrade to 15.04 now. after then 14.10 will be shut down.13:09
orogori ask because some release had good  bootloader or audio  bug in major version change13:10
rydzykjeGuys I used, chown 775 and also 664 and the result is the same13:10
rydzykjeanyway that log files are not created because of "permission denied"13:10
MonkeyDustrydzykje  good, 664 is safer than 77513:10
rydzykjeMonkeyDust: but result is the same, :(13:11
Umeaboyneldogz: Problem is with mount right?13:11
MonkeyDustrydzykje  great, then use the safer version13:11
rydzykjemaybe i should rise service permissions when running?13:11
neldogzUmeaboy, I believe so but difficult to tell since there is no real error just a bunch of data spewed out after Task Dump for CPUx13:12
neldogzUmeaboy, happens systemd is referencing the raid13:12
capsicumRory, now this is interesting same error with
UmeaboyCheck on bugs reported against systemd then? :)13:13
capsicumIt's gigabyte nuc, perhaps there is problem with it.13:13
rydzykjewhich permisions should have my.cnf file ? 0644 ?13:14

DeathcrowMonkeyDust: okay, thanks13:16
rydzykjeMrElendig: ownership?13:18
neldogzWhen a system is booting and systemd is displaying messages across the screen.. where is that stored?13:21
Umeaboyneldogz: /var/log/messages perhaps?13:21
UmeaboyCheck in /var/log to begin with.13:22
UmeaboyThere might also be a /var/log/boot13:22
neldogzUmeaboy, Ubuntu 15 no longer has messages13:22
neldogzUmeaboy, no boot either...13:22
Umeaboyjournalctl then?13:22
neldogzUmeaboy, will try that13:23
XultzHello, I would like to install 15.04 via wubi. When i click on the cd drive on WIndows, it opens the wubi installer, but it wants to download and install 14.10. I copied it to the same folder where the .iso is, and it still wants to install 14.10. What should I do to install 15.04?13:24
UmeaboyXultz: Install 14.10 and upgrade in it. :)13:24
MonkeyDustXultz  wubi is not a good idea13:24
Umeaboysudo do-release-upgrade :)13:24
XultzWhy not, Monkeydust?13:25
MonkeyDustXultz  because it is a pseudo installation and will give you more problems than frustration... for one, it cannot be upgraded13:25
daftykinsXultz: avoid it like the plague it is.13:26
MonkeyDustXultz  wubi means Will Ultimately Be Inefficient13:26
XultzOk. I wanna install in my working machine, which have one partition with Windows on it. Is it safe to resize the partition and install on it?13:26
daftykinswhich Windows ? 8?13:26
daftykinsfactory install it came with, or otherwise?13:26
tewardXultz: you can resize the partition live if you have Windows 7 or later - it can resize its own partition while you're booted.  That then gives you disk space to install Ubuntu too13:27
teward(that way the resize is 'safe')13:27
tewardbut you should still answer daftykins :P13:27
Xultzteward, you mean that I can resize the partition while running Windows? How do I do it?13:27
EriC^^control panel > type disks in the search13:28
daftykinsXultz: run diskmgmt.msc then right click the partition, and resize13:28
DeathcrowCan anyone in here help me how to compile a kernel module for the stock ubuntu kernel? no one in #ubuntu-kernel is responding...13:28
XultzYes daftykins, is a Dell machine with factory Windows on it13:28
daftykinsnote that you must have an empty recycle bin, a defragmented drive (if it's a mechanical HDD) before trying13:28
daftykinsXultz: ok you might have more partitions on that disk than you expect, then such as for recovery.13:28
Xultzok, I'll try it, thank you so much for all!13:28

flipapycan i set my backround image to change every 5 seconds using a folder of images in my pictured folder?13:35
flipapythanks Rory13:35
MonkeyDustflipapy  you need to create a xml file to achieve that13:35
Roryflipapy: I like Shotwell image manager. http://askubuntu.com/a/12096513:35
flipapybut basically yeah i guess that's it, i want a constant changing of images, where i get to determine the images13:35
flipapylike every few seconds13:35

prestoriumhi all. I have 14.04.02. I need to downgrade it to 14.04. Is it possible?13:43
EriC^^prestorium: no13:43
daftykinsprestorium: also, why?13:44
prestoriumdaftykins, because puppet-enterprise 3.8 won't install on 14.04.02. I can upgrade after13:44
rydzykjeEriC^^: dpkg -L mysql-community-server |grep /var/log - is not giving any result13:44
EriC^^rydzykje: ok, type ls -ld /var/log13:45
daftykinsprestorium: is it 14.04 updated to 14.04.2, or 14.04.2 installed fresh? the difference is the former would be on a 3.13 kernel whilst the latter would be on a 3.16 kernel13:45
rydzykjeEriC^^: drwxrwxr-x 10 root syslog 4096 Apr 27 11:00 /var/log13:46
flipapyyeah it's working, gonna tweak how the pics frame up, they are acting buggy but it's working, thanks Rory13:46
prestoriumdaftykins, Google Cloud Engine, so dunno. I think that it is a fresh install13:46
EriC^^rydzykje: how do you run the sql server?13:46
rydzykjeEriC^^: service mysql start13:46
prestoriumdaftykins, the only difference is the kernel?!13:47
rydzykjeEriC^^: Im on the root acc13:47
daftykinsprestorium: some kinda VPS? ok not touching that :)13:47
daftykinsprestorium: run "uname -r" to confirm13:47
daftykins14.04.2 comes with the utopic HWE13:48
prestoriumdaftykins, VPS. The kernel is 3.16.13:48
daftykinsyeah, likely running 3.16 is what's ruining your plans13:48
daftykinsbut i couldn't comment on how or if you can install 3.13 instead given your setup13:48
prestoriumdaftykins, so... if I could downgrade the kernel I should be fine?13:48
prestoriumhmm :)13:48
EriC^^rydzykje: i have no idea13:49
rydzykjeEriC^^: anyway thanks13:49
EriC^^rydzykje: it looks like a permissions error, is there an sql user?13:49
daftykinsprestorium: i'm not guaranteeing it, but it's what i'd try13:50
rydzykjeEriC^^: which user?13:50
EriC^^like www-data for apache13:50
prestoriumdaftykins, if things go wrong, I can nuke the VM and try again13:50
rydzykjeEriC^^: in mysql is called "mysql" ?13:50
prestoriumdaftykins, linux-headers and linux-image? Do I need anything else?13:51
rydzykjeEriC^^: in my.cnf in section [mysqld] there's user=mysql13:51
EriC^^rydzykje: try typing groups sql13:51

rydzykjeEriC^^: by type: groups mysql i received: mysql: mysql13:52
flipapyok, how do i stop the slideshow Rory ?13:55
Roryflipapy: No idea m8. Right-click desktop -> change wallpaper -> select some other image13:55

flipapyha, good one, now i have some ghost operation just floatng around in the back end. lol, ok, well its still a nice os, thanks though, it works. :)13:56

rydzykjeEriC^^: the problem is for sure that ,service has not permisions to create files in /var/log , is it possible to edit it?14:00
flipapyok, dont hate me for saying the word windos (joke) but in windows i can right click desktop backround and move to next image. is there something similar here?14:00
MonkeyDustflipapy  never heard of such option and never needed it14:01
flipapyyeah MonkeyDust i gtet that, but sometimes i just get tired of looking at the backround image, really retty pic, and i just click to the next one14:02

pc_magassomsip, yes but theese 214:35
daftykinshow delightfully insecure.14:35
pc_magasCan you sugest me a pastebin to paste the sudoers files?14:35
somsippc_magas: I won't help you. It's a Bad Thing [TM] to do.14:35

mcphailpc_magas: why are you trying to get www-data to escalate to root????14:39
pc_magasAnd sudo /usr/bin/convert presentations/GallupDC.pdf presentations/GallupDC/GallupDC%d.png14:39
pc_magasmcphail, because this command I posted above cound not be executed otherwhy14:39
pc_magasThe point is to execute these commands14:39
somsippc_magas: you get php to save the files somewhere, then run a background process to check 'somehwere' for files that need converting. You run that process safely, away from your web server. This is not an ubuntu support issue though14:41
mcphailpc_magas: there is no way you should escalate www-data's priveleges to do that14:41
pc_magassomsip, I develop in ubuntu ;)14:41
somsippc_magas: not a support issue. A problem with finding a solution to a dev problem. I've given you some advice, but it is offtopic here14:42
aldnknoip isn't quite what I'm looking for -- not talking about DNS. I mean if I have something running on localhost:$PORT, how can I access it on $IP:PORT? How do I externalize that localhost port?14:42

octopissedapparently not, I am using Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. it might not have upgraded because I am using the Gnome 3 version of Ubuntu?14:48

Roryricky_: You can view/edit your software sources with a GUi by searching for "software and updates" in the Dash14:53
Roryricky_: Looks like that problem repository is still enabled, and that's why apt-get is hanging (because the website is down)14:53
daftykinsoctopissed: then it's nothing to do with drivers on the host running the program14:53

willow19which i believe was registered as 'willow'14:55
ricky_Rory, to verify where is this repo that always asking if i do apt-get update?14:55
Roryricky_: Yes it's helpful, it's telling me exactly what the problem is and how to fix it. I've explained exactly what the problem is, and how to fix it, and now I'm waiting for you to let me know you've done it14:55

petrvsadamlxs: if you aren't going to upgrade, you should find another distro14:55
somsipadamlxs: 14.10? Only supported until July. So maybe you will have to change sooner or later14:56
ricky_Rory, uhm well i've done it but no luck there in not any link about the repo russo79 in the list in etc/apt14:56
petrvssitting on old software is not a great idea14:56

adamlxsthanks but the other version comes with 5 years support correct me if i am wron14:57
octopisseddaftykins: sorry, it's the other way around. the client has 15.04 and the host has 14.04. I recently upgraded the client to 15.04 and I believe that is the cause of the problems.14:57

adamlxs14.04.2 i meant14:59
ricky_Rory, ok14:59

ricky_Rory, well done it's workin ;)15:00
Roryricky_: Once it's removed, you should be able to run "sudo apt-get update" without error. Once that has completed, you should run "sudo apt-get -f install" and then proceed with the installation of those debs you downloaded15:00

Roryricky_: This could potentially go on quite a long time. This project gnome15 appears to be somewhat dead15:08
ricky_ricky_, well when i've upgraded to the previous version of ubuntu all workings well, now i've done a fresh clean install and that's why i'm here15:09
kunjiaskon: use a network cable, I'm skeptical of that other way working out.15:10
EriC^^askon: i think it depends on how the laptop is setup, if it's not setup for networking like that i don't think you can access the files15:10
askonEriC^^ ; is it possible ? or I have to buy that adapter ??15:10
Roryricky_: I would suggest the following, however: "sudo dpkg -i --force-all ~/Downloads/Gnome15\ Debs/*.deb"15:10
EriC^^askon: you can hook them up, but you need to set it up from the old laptop, i think15:10
Roryricky_: and then "sudo apt-get -f install"15:10
ricky_Rory, ok i try15:10
kunjiaskon: network cable is faster anyway...15:10

Roryricky_: I would like to see the output from that, if possible15:11

ricky_Rory, and the next step? this working woothout errors15:18
RoryOnce this has completed you will need to run: sudo apt-get -f install15:18

ricky_Rory,  yes it seems15:19
ricky_Rory,  yes do you want the paste?15:20
Roryricky_: sure15:20
Roryricky_: Now you have the packages installed, you should continue with your original instructions from after the step where you are supposed to "apt-get install" those packages15:20

Rorywow so that actually worked15:23
RoryI mean, I never doubted it15:23
ricky_Rory, ok so i will continue i don't need to reboot or similar isn't it?15:24

ricky_Rory, ok i'm on a i7 4970k ssd and 2133 mhz 16 gb i hope it will be fast the reboot15:25

bugs_buggersomsip: im a little desperate to be honest. by rebuilding you mean settings and configs or sources?15:41

kunjibugs_bugger: After purging the ppa, did you remove and reinstall php?15:41
somsipbugs_bugger: reinstall unless you can find a way of uninstalling. One/any of the above might do it for you, but it could get ugly15:41
bugs_buggersomsip: thank you. im so mad at myself right now...hopefully it works15:42
somsipbugs_bugger: good luck15:42
bugs_buggerkunji: no. ill try.15:42
bugs_buggersomsip: thanks15:43
kunjibugs_bugger: Because I don't think purging a ppa removes the packages installed from it.  It's basically what's they're doing in the links from somsip, removing all the php packages and then reinstalling some stuff/moving to a different ppa in the 1st link (oldstable).   If you're going to try those, back up any configuration files you need information from to a different location (e.g. if you've customized your apache2.conf or php.conf, httpd, etc...15:46
bugs_buggerkunji: k, thanks15:48
kunjibugs_bugger: If the configuration is the same as before, then you could use remove instead of purge to keep the current config files, but if there is a problem in them, then there will still be a config error.15:48
bugs_buggerkunji: right now, i already have a configtest error, stating a certain module is missing: mod_acess_compat.so. i dont happen to be able to install that manually?15:49

MonkeyDustThenewone  the younger they learn ubuntu, the better15:56
daftykinsThenewone: someone with over 20 years experience and understanding in this field.15:57
daftykinsbut of course, do what you want - just don't blame me when you want the time wasted back :)15:57
MonkeyDustThenewone  it's simply a matter of "getting used to", he has to learn it like he learned windows: by using it15:57
daftykinslikely TFTP boot is what you want.15:57
Thenewonethanks but daftykins do you know how to do it ?15:57
daftykinsi believe i just said15:58
Thenewoneso it's pointless15:58
kunjiThenewone: If you want to do it, there are ways to get Windows running in virtualbox.  It's not really a 3d gameworthy solution though.  I think it's mostly done for simulation networks of windows machines for penetration testing.15:58
daftykinsyeah, why not just install Windows from a flash drive like normal...15:58
Thenewonemy little brother play wow15:58
daftykinsassuming we're understanding you properly15:59
Thenewonehe is little guys be easy one me15:59
kunjiThenewone: It won't work well on a virtual machine, I promise.15:59
tewardThenewone: WoW won't work effectively from a Windows VM15:59
Thenewonei just want install windows fom my laptop he is in other room15:59
tewardThenewone: you can't if he's on that laptop.16:00
=== EriC^^ is now known as eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeethat is exactly as annoying i thought it would be16:00
tewardThenewone: except in a VM and WoW / games won't work well from it16:00
kunjiThenewone:  You may get it working, be prepared for long hours of fiddling, good luck, and it will not work well even if it does "work".16:00
Thenewonei will lookit for my self16:00
bugs_buggerkunji: i disabled some mods: access_compat, mpm_prefork, authn_core, authz_core, socache_shmcb. you happen to know about them?16:00

Thenewonei want learn new way to install things16:01
MonkeyDustThenewone  make sure your brother doesnt get too familiar with windows16:02
Thenewonei know how use flash drive,cd,hdd external, via server i dontknow i want learn it but it's ok i will know how it's works16:02
kunjibugs_bugger: Nope, I don't know, I don't mess with server internals much.  Did your apache version change due to the ppa as well though?  Because 2.2 and 2.4 have lots of changes.  http://serverfault.com/questions/386687/update-to-apache-2-4-missing-modules16:02

Thenewonehow to prepare a linux server to install shit16:04
MonkeyDustThenewone  make clear to him he has to get used to something else16:04
daftykinstechnically you are, because installing Windows via LAN is a Windows support query16:04
bugs_buggerkunji: ok, thanks. server is working now again and i suspect the mods were from 2.4.16:04
daftykinsregardless of the OS you want to launch it from16:04
Thenewonei keep my desktop clean16:04
MonkeyDustThenewone  you're the boss16:04
Thenewonei hide icons16:04
kunjiThenewone: so put some there for him, I don't even keep them there to hide.16:04
k1l_Thenewone: that depends on what you want to install. (and we keep the language family friendly)16:04
Thenewonei'm sorry guys16:05
kunjiThenewone: You mean install a LAMP server?  I'm not sure what that has to do with icons and WOW though?16:05
k1l_Thenewone: so please ask ##windows what you need for a network windows install.16:05
Thenewoneok ok16:05
Thenewonei will change my question16:05

belovedJordan_U: Next problem: man: can't resolve /usr/local/share/man/man1/youtube-dl.1: No such file or directory17:45
Jordan_Ubeloved: Every time you run a command for the first time, bash looks through all of the directories in $PATH to find the binary you're trying to run, which can take some time. As an optimization, once it has found the command once, it will remember the exact path to this command's binary in a hash table, which in most cases speeds things up without causing any problems.17:45
belovedJordan_U: For: man youtube-dl17:45
belovedJordan_U: Will it remember this if I reboot?17:46
Jordan_Ubeloved: In your case, you had youtube-dl installed in /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl , bash hashed that path for youtube-dl, then you changed the path for youtube-dl to /usr/bin/youtube-dl. That is why your command was failing, and why unhashing (making bash look through all of the directories in $PATH) made it work again.17:47
belovedJordan_U: I apt-get purge'd it. now it works with man youtube-dl17:47
octopissedioria: which permissions should those have?17:48

Also the internal display turns off, and I have no way tu turn it back on. I just have to press the power switch to turn it off17:48
Jordan_Umaarhart: What version of Ubuntu are you using?17:49
maarhartthe last one17:49
ioriaoctopissed,  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root for  xinitrc, and rw user for .Xauthority17:49
Jordan_Umaarhart: 15.04 was released a few days ago. Is that what you're using?17:49
maarhartthat one17:50
pc_magasJordan_U, Actially I am stuck with 14.04 caise it's LTS17:50
maarhartJordan_U: any suggestions?17:50
utu8odoes Ubuntu still have the privacy-invasive Zeitgeist app installed by default?... which logs the users's activities and events, anywhere from files opened to websites visited and conversations. It makes this information readily available for other applications to use in the form of timelines and statistics.17:50
octopissedioria: there's not xinitrc in the user dir?17:51
k1l_utu8o: you know what? you can disable it in the privacy settings. and zeitgeist is a gnome app and is used on the gnome desktop too17:51
Jordan_Umaarhart: Does pressing the power switch turn the computer off, or do you have to hold the power switch?17:51
xanguautu8o: lots of distros have it installed, yes17:51
xanguanot just ubuntu or unity17:51
ioriaoctopissed,  no, xinit is /etc/X11... but not bother   ... can you run glxinfo on the client ?17:51
pc_magasutu8o, the only privacy issue is the amazon webapp that can me easilly uninstalled without any system affect17:52
pc_magasAccording to RMS17:52
xanguapc_magas: or just swich off the online searches...17:52
octopissedioria: I can.17:52
ioriaoctopissed,  clean output ?17:52
pc_magasxangua, also that is a solution17:52
octopissedioria: how would clean output look?17:53
ioriaoctopissed,  no error17:53
utu8oone of the main reasons I started using Ubuntu is because I thought it ensured better privacy and security than Windows, does this still hold true?17:53

k1l_utu8o: but since that is different from user to user: just make it suit your needs.17:54

octopissedioria: thanks, I think I may be on the track of this now.18:00
Jordan_Umaarhart: Are you connected to a router via ethernet? If so, can you ping the machine? If so, can you ssh into it?18:00
XenophonFi think i got it - /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/cryptroot must be named exactly that, or the luks-related stuff doesn't get copied to the initrd18:00

maarhartvia wifi. I didn't try ssh, but as I told you I could connect to the IP of the computer.18:02
maarhartJordan_U: do you have any guess?18:03
nascentmindHi. I did a sudo do-release-upgrade and interrupted it by pressing ctrl+c while it was downloading. Now when I do a sudo do-release-upgrade again it says "No new release found". How do I fix this?18:03
Jordan_Umaarhart: Please install openssh-server so that you can ssh in from another machine (as long as this machine is behind a router and thus won't be getting random ssh exploit attempts 10 times a second).18:03
tewardJordan_U: if it is internet facing, they can configure iptables to only permit certain ips to their ssh connection - thereby restrict the actual 'visibility' of SSH to the world18:05
r08oHi, just did a clean install of Ubuntu 15.04 on my desktop. I used a wired internet connection to get up and running, but want to use my Netgear usb for wifi. I installed the right drivers and can now detect my wifi SSID, but when I try to connect the wifi symbol just keeps "loading" and I am not getting connected. Any ideas?18:05
daftykinsreset the router = #118:06
maarhartJordan_U: before that, I forgot to mention: I get this error in X --configure,  number of created screens does not match number of detected devices18:06
daftykinsi've sat here and gone through the steps of diagnosing someones wireless woes before when all they needed to do was power off and on18:06
r08odaftykins, I have done that of course.18:06
Jordan_Ur08o: How did you "install the correct drivers"?18:06
daftykinsgood to know! you'd be surprised the number who don't18:06
r08oAnd tried my mobile tethering as well. Same scenario18:06

skunixwhen I come back from a system suspend all my options in the network manager are grayed out18:13
Jordan_Umaarhart: Why did you think that? If you currently have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and you're not using any proprietary drivers, then I recommend renaming it so it's no longer used: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak18:13

Atargood evening. I have repeatedly tried to upgrade from 14.10 server to 15.04. do-dist-upgrade always fails with "UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xae in position 337: invalid start byte".18:19
Atarany ideas would be appreciated. (sorry for coming back with the question).18:19
freeone3000Hi. I'm holding shift on my keyboard through the entire startup process (past PXE and everything) but there is no grub menu. How can I fix this?18:21
Jordan_UXenophonF: What problem are you having with grub?18:21
Jordan_Ufreeone3000: Is this a BIOS based or UEFI based machine?18:21
daftykinsfreeone3000: try the other shift18:21
Atarif its relevant, I'm trying to upgrade via SSH, but the server also has xfce installed.18:21
freeone3000daftykins: Tried both shifts.18:22
freeone3000Jordan_U: UEFI, once it gets past IPMI and PXE.18:22
XenophonFJordan_U: i'm having problems getting my encrypted root volume to start18:22
freeone3000Jordan_U: I can get into the UEFI shell, but that doesn't do me any good (or I don't think so)18:22
daftykinsAtar: you mean 'sudo do-release-upgrade' ?18:22
Jordan_Ufreeone3000: Then you have to spam escape rather than holding shift, or just configure grub to always show the menu.18:22
XenophonFi'm trying to install debian onto a zfs pool which uses a luks container as the backing store for the zfs pool18:22
daftykinsXenophonF: best ask the #debian folk then18:23
freeone3000Jordan_U: Can't do the latter if I can't change the grub menu. Spamming escape it is.18:23
Atardaftykins: I'm running as root atm.18:23
XenophonFlol typed debian meant ubuntu18:23
freeone3000Also not responding to Ctrl-C or ctrl-d during init, which I find odd.18:23
XenophonFi have ubuntu installed, and refind sees the unencrypted /boot and can load the kernel/initrd18:23
daftykinsAtar: tried... not?18:23
XenophonFbut for some reason the cryptsetup stuff doesn't get called18:23
XenophonFso i'm dumped into a busybox shell18:23
Atardaftykins: i tried via sudo as well.18:23
jpwhitingEric__: ok, so here on an old precise 12.04 vm I installed xserver-xorg-video-intel-lts-quantal18:24
daftykinsand how about not over SSH?18:24
Jordan_Ufreeone3000: UEFI doesn't have an interface for a bootloader to ask if a key is currently pressed, so a UEFI based bootloader can only "see" key presses that happen after they've started. BIOS does have such an interface, and it works well.18:24
jpwhitingthat pulled in xserver-xorg-core-lts-quantal18:24
ioriar08o, do you have Windows Wireless Drivers in system -  Administration ?18:24
XenophonFi was going to try to get grub-efi installed, but i'm not sure it matters if refind can load the kernel+initrd18:24

Jordan_UXenophonF: Do you have your EFI System Partition mounted at /boot/efi/ ?18:26
XenophonFno, but i can in two shakes18:26
jpwhitingEriC^^: apt-cache rdepends xserver-xorg-core gives many many packages that depend on it, doesn't tell me which is installed or such18:26
ioriar08o, did you install ndisgtk, ndiswrapper-utils-1.9, and ndiswrapper-common ?18:26

stacks88if on linux i type nano file.txt and put a bunch of stuff on there, in new lines, when i go to view this file.txt from windows 7 notepad, sometimes it can appear messed up or like things arent on new lines properly. is there a way to use nano and have it save txt files that are compatible with the windows notepad ? or is this just not realistic18:30
EriC^^jpwhiting: i mean "ii" instead of "none"18:31
daftykinsstacks88: use wordpad instead, notepad doesn't honour the same encoding18:31
Jordan_UXenophonF: You can add "--no-nvram" if you want grub-install just to add its files to /boot/efi/ without adding any EFI boot entries.18:31
EriC^^jpwhiting: and no !18:31
maarhartJordan_U: I have two proprietary drivers, broadcom wireless and Processor microcode firmware for Intel CPUS. Is it then bad if I do sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak ?18:31

EriC^^use that ^^18:31
Jordan_Umaarhart: No, because those aren't graphics drivers.18:31
XenophonFok, thanks Jordan_U18:32
Jordan_Umaarhart: You should be prepared to restore the Xorg.conf manually from the terminal or a LiveCD on the small chance that renaming it prevents X from starting again.18:32
geniistacks88: There is also a difference in how Windows ends lines, there is an utility set of dos2unix and unix2dos to change it back and forth18:33
stacks88ah ok thanks guys18:33

Input on the keyboard is not showing up. What should I try?18:33
EriC^^jpwhiting: i think some packages in rdepends have a | before it, you might need to pipe it to sed first to remove that rdepends xserver-xorg-core | sed 's/^|//'18:33
Jordan_UXenophonF: You're welcome.18:33

jpwhitinghmm, even with | sed 's/ *//' on there I get nothing :/18:38

XenophonFJordan_U: it looks like i can just run grub-install, but i also need to run update-grub to get /boot itself populated correctly18:40
ioriaoctopissed,  ok but if you post Xorg.log maybe we can help more18:41
Jordan_UXenophonF: I expect that update-grub has already been run automatically multiple times, but if you don't have a /boot/grub/grub.cfg then you will indeed need to run "sudo update-grub".18:41

jpwhitingalternatively is there something in apt-cache besides rdepends that searches the "provides" rather than the reverse dependencies maybe ?19:03

r08oioria, how do I find out what it is then?19:03

twilerHello, I had a quick question for just about anyone that uses ubuntu, probably: I recently downloaded the usenet reader/downloader PAN, and after I installed the PPA repository, I downloaded the files, and this is what gets me every single time with ubuntu (and linux in general, I'm guessing) software, is the lack of any .EXE or executable file whatsoever! How to I start PAN now that I'v downloaded and extracted the files? How a19:06
twilerm I supposed to be able to figure this stuff out on my own, without running to the #ubuntu room in xchat every single time I download something new? I'm by no means a stupid man, but, I'll tell you what, linux will humble you a bit! Any help whatsoever is appreciated! Thanks in advance, O warlords of the Linux Underworld!19:06
ioriar08o, have you ever entered your router from browser ?19:07
daftykinstwiler: saying you downloaded software, THEN installed a PPA is backwards. you add a PPA, THEN install the software from said PPA in the form of packages19:07
DJonestwiler: Did you try the default ubuntu version of pan, sudo apt-get install pan?19:07
daftykinstwiler: documentation tends to be the #1 way to learn how to run a program after getting it19:07
geniitwiler: Binary files in linux do not generally have an extension. They are known to be binary files from the header within the file itself, and their location in the filesystem, which is traditionally /bin or /usr/bin19:08
maarhartis Jordan gone?19:08
r08oioria, yeah,
twiler@genii: Thanks, that actually made a little bit of sense!19:09
ioriar08o, good19:09
r08oioria, now it is trying to load web sites at least, but nothing happens. Earlier I just got server not found right away19:09
r08oioria, still get it, but not before 30 seconds now19:09
geniitwiler: If the PPA is well-behaved it will put it's files into someplace sane like /opt/PAN/bin  or similar19:10
ioriar08o, ifconfig ?19:10
twiler@daftykins: No, I didn't and now I feel kinda foolish..19:10
r08oioria, i have ip19:10
twilercause, I just did that, and it worked..19:10

r08oioria, Makes no sense why I was able to ping sites for small periods of time19:50
pavloscheapie, I would try the first command (unity_support_test -p) to verify that your video is ok19:50
Jordan_Udarkfrog: Have you recently installed any Boot Firmware updates ("BIOS" updates)?19:51
ioriar08o,  i know ... it depends on driver19:51
cheapiepavlos: I know acceleration's currently not working, as I removed fglrx after it broke.19:51
EriC^^maarhart: type rm /home/maarhart/.Xauthority then try again19:51
maarhartEriC^^: okay, echo $DISPLAY returns /private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.en1p90i4HS/org.macosforge.xquartz:019:51
darkfrogJordan_U: not recently, no....I just checked to make sure I have the latest motherboard firmware though and it is, but was last updated a year ago.19:51
geniimaarhart: You must have done something like sudo startx while in that directory and changed it's ownership. Suggest to: sudo chown maarhart:maarhart /home/maarhart/.Xauthority19:51
cheapiepavlos: Do you think that fixing the video will make it work?19:51
pavloscheapie, that would be a start ... I have 15.04 on a vm and it works fine19:52

maarhartokay, trying ssh connection again and also the echo $DISPLAY19:53
r08oioria, sorry, yes I have. Jesus. Needs to get used to Ubuntu19:53
EriC^^maarhart: ok19:53
Jordan_Udarkfrog: Those microcode updates are usually included in boot firmware updates, Ubuntu just provides a way to have the kernel load this new microcode at boot if your boot firmware isn't doing it. So I suspect you're using the same CPU microcode either way.19:53

maarhartyou mean disconnecting ssh or what?19:54
darkfrogJordan_U: I'm not 100% positive this is what's causing my problems, but the only two things I've changed recently were this and the video drivers (and I've switched those back since).19:54
EriC^^maarhart: no logging out of X19:55
darkfrogJordan_U: this is causing strange issues though, like autocompletion in terminal is one of the things that pauses or a Chrome tab loading a page19:55
maarhartEriC^^: closing the X11 application?19:55
EriC^^maarhart: yes, log out completely19:55
cheapiepavlos: Well, it's still not working, and unity_support_test is indicating that software rendering is in use, even though I followed the exact same video driver repair procedure that works on Debian... is there a way to just make it use the "2D" version of Unity instead?19:55
maarhartEriC^^: logout from the mac computer?19:56

maarhartEriC^^: should I also reboot ubuntu?19:56
mo2759everyone doing alright?19:56
EriC^^maarhart: no, just log out and back in19:57
Jordan_Udarkfrog: That to me sounds like IO latency, which could be caused by your hard drive spinning down then taking a long time to spin back up again, something exhausting memory so that files that were cached in RAM had to be evicted, causing them to be read from disk again, or a combination of both.19:57
petrvscheapie: smart mom19:57
maarhartEriC^^: I interpret you want me to close and reopen X1119:57

ioriar08o,  can you paste lsmod ?20:08
maarhartEriC^^: xauth is installed20:09
darkfrogJordan_U: no, I'm trying to reproduce it now - it seems loading one of my projects in IntelliJ seems to cause it frequently so I'm doing that.20:09
r08oioria, http://paste.ubuntu.com/1094451520:09
pavlosAndChat513876, you will find a copy in /var/backups20:09
Jordan_Udarkfrog: Is that project being loaded from the NAS?20:09
darkfrogJordan_U: no, from one of the SSDs20:10
EriC^^maarhart: i think you need to create that file in the remote server20:10
AndChat513876I just crashed my Ubuntu. Need help pls20:10
maarhartEriC^^: is it touch ~/.Xauthority ?20:10
danbowerhey guys. i'd really appreciate a sanity check here. a few weeks ago my system produced an error relating to graphics. i can't remember the details but i had to reset. ever since  then ubuntu, even after fresh installs of the OS, fails to work with my monitor on either of the display ports. the monitor just goes into power saving mode as ubuntu starts to boot. however it does work on the DVI port. i've tried installing AMDs driver but this has been unsucces20:11
danbowersful due to fglrx failing to build correctly. i successfully installed the same driver months back20:11
k1lpromet: maybe some old gnome things are broken now. you could try to look if .Xauthority belongs to user:user and not root:root20:12
EriC^^maarhart: type cat /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the remote server20:12
petrvsdanbower: as in 'DisplayPort' ports?20:12
k1lpromet: if that doesnt help maybe rename  the .cache and .config folders in the users /home. and see if the proper video driver is loaded20:12
danboweroddly the monitor works fine in windows but i am experiencing a rather random error quite regularly when playing dota. i've played that game many hours previously. does it sound like my graphics card is starting to die?20:12
danbowerpetrvs, yes that's right20:13
k1lpromet: actually see if the guest account works with unity. if so its a user issue. if not its maybe a driver issue20:13
EriC^^maarhart: type grep X11Forwarding /etc/ssh/sshd_config20:13
prometk1l, I will try this, thanks very much for the suggestions!20:13
maarhartEric__: okay I got a lot of text with the cat20:13
EriC^^maarhart: try the grep command, it should be set to yes20:13
danbowerthe error being a BSOD and google producing a plethora of different issues relating to it20:13
maarhartEriC^^: it is set to yes20:14
EriC^^try on the second machine maybe20:14
prometk1l, .Xauthority, sure enough, belongs to root:root20:14
maarhartX11UseLocalhost no20:14
ioriar08o,  run lsusb  and try ndiswrapper -a  xxxx:xxx  bcmwlhigh5  change the x with the result after ID20:14
maarhartX11DisplayOffset 1020:14
danbowerkeeping in mind i've used the exact same system for a while now without issues would suggest my graphics card is dying however i'm not entirely sure20:14
prometk1l, it *should* be user:user you're saying?20:14
k1lpromet: sudo chown user:user .Xauthority #change user to your actual user nick20:14
maarhartEriC^^: try what on the mac os machine?20:15
prometk1l, roger that20:15
vanberge1crontab sanity check:  Will this execute on the 2nd tuesday of every month?   0 1 7-14 2 /path/to/myscript20:15

maarhartEriC^^: mac os x does not have grep I think20:16
prometk1l, did this via ssh from work, will test the Unity launch when I get home, thanks much20:16
danbowerpetrvs, what are your thoughts? i'm not exactly looking for a solution, i've been dicking around with this for a while now, but i've been mulling it over so long i'd just like to see what others think given what has happened20:16
danbowerit's all rather odd20:17
maarhartEriC^^: grep: /etc/ssh/sshd_config: No such file or directory20:17
maarhart 20:17
EriC^^vanberge1: that doesn't make sense, 7-14 is 1 week's difference20:17

r08oioria, done, reset network-manager, dongle in out, still no connection20:19
EriC^^vanberge1: nevermind what i said20:19
danbowerpetrvs, the installation process is all automated, i just ran it from the CLI using `sh`20:19

petrvsdanbower: Ubuntu way: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD20:19

vanberge1Pici: so I've got it right then.  it will execute on tuesday only between days 7-1420:20
ioriar08o,  sorry man   run out of ideas for now20:20
cheapieMonika: Something along the lines of "cat id_rsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2"20:20
danbowerdo you not find it odd that the drivers that come with ubuntu, which have previously worked, now fail to work when my monitor uses the display ports?20:20
r08oioria, it's okay. I am amazed you even wanted to spend so much time helping me. Thanks a lot!20:21
maarhartEriC^^: I should go to sleep. Is there anything else I could do?20:21

EriC^^vanberge1: i think it would be like 8-1020:24
EriC^^not sure20:24
EriC^^maarhart: no, you have to get xauth on the remote server to make .Xauthority20:24

rudi_STEiNHi, does anyone know how to retrieve files that are on a LiveCD? RE: I downloaded a file on my LiveCD - and now I want to open it on my Mac. I see a bunch of files and folders, and have poked around in them (even searched), and can't find the files. Is it in an image file or something?20:25
danbowerpetrvs, well if i had done something unusual around the time the low-graphics error occurred it would have been my first port of call. however it all came about all of a sudden20:26
darkfrogJordan_U: well, for the moment at least everything seems to be working fine again20:26
prometjust in case though, does anyone know a safe way to deactivate plymouth in 15.04?20:26
petrvsdanbower: I know, but since we don't believe in magic, you probably just didn't notice something instead20:26
maarhartEriC^^: I am about to give up with all this20:27

darkfrogJordan_U: I'm going to reboot again and see how it's acting then. BRB20:29
EriC^^maarhart: type echo $DISPLAY on your machine20:30
danbowerpetrvs, unless ubuntu silently updates itself there were no changes some 48 hours before the error occurred. considering i've already mentioned i've done fresh installs with nothing unusual, i don't think it's a software issue20:30
EriC^^get the <name>:<number> part like in the link20:30
maarhart 20:31
EriC^^maarhart: then type xauth <name>:<number> . abcdef0123456789abcdef012345678920:31

danboweri've started experiencing issues where ubuntu doesn't work with my monitor when i use the DisplayPort input on my graphics card. i've tried using a liveCD i burned about six months ago, which at the time definitely worked with my monitor, but that fails to work too. coupled with me now getting BSOD whilst gaming in windows, does this suggest a hardware fault with my graphics card?20:39
maarhartokay, I did that20:39
acz32yacxcin: you may want to give okular a try. i don't think evince (document viewer) is that featureful20:39

Jordan_Uoctopissy: Two things to note for future reference. 1: You should almost never use guides for a different version of Ubuntu that you have and 2: You should avoid blog posts, and instead look for official documentation.20:52
EriC^^maarhart: ok, cool20:52
maarhartnow what?20:52
EriC^^what do you mean?20:52
EriC^^what are you trying to do?20:52
pavlosoctopissy, software & updates, last tab, additional drivers20:53
maarhartEriC^^: my issue is that if I reboot my laptop with the lid closed, I see grub, I see the ubuntu splash, but then the external display goes off20:53
maarhartand the internal display as well20:53
octopissypavlos: so that will change it in my actual installation as well_20:53
maarhartand I cannot do anything, I just have to press the power button so it shuts down20:53
pavlosoctopissy, you have 15.04, not running LIVE? you should have some additional drivers in that tab20:54
EriC^^why did you want to make X forwarding?20:54

Captonjamasonhow can one fix this21:49
k1lcan you show the syslog?21:50
Captonjamasonon it21:50
k1lthe difference on the logs is, that with every reboot the log gets renamed to "log"+1. so you can see the last some reboots21:51

Captonjamasonor standard desktop23:00
[7hunderbird]12.04.05 LTS desktop 6423:00
Captonjamasonyou might want to update to 14.0423:00
Captonjamasoni had huge problems with 12.0423:01
[7hunderbird]we use 12.04 in our configuration managment software (re: puppet) and we're still in the process of making our modules compatible with 14.0423:02
[7hunderbird]I basically downloaded from a torrent, http://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads and this link => http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-12.04.5-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent23:03
[7hunderbird]but from that most recent version I'm kinda shocked that installing via VMWare fusion I get to the signin screen, it signs in and goes to a black screen23:04
daftykins[7hunderbird]: are you using any of VMware's helpful OS installation features? or doing it all by hand23:06
[7hunderbird]I used the easy install method, yes23:06
daftykinsthat was probably unwise.23:06
daftykinstechnically, you installing from 12.04.5 media will practically be 14.04 as it'll have 14.04's hardware enablement stack23:07
daftykinswhich means its' kernel (v3.13) and X stack23:07
[7hunderbird]it's done it many times before23:07
daftykinswell i steer clear of that feature :)23:07

alazare619so with those if i were to take it to another machine23:38
alazare619like zfs23:38
alazare619will the os automatically know its a raid set and want to rebuild?23:38
daftykinsrebuilds are what are done when a member disk fails23:39
daftykinsand you add one in to replace it23:39
GrimsleyI thought ZFS support under linux was still somewhat poor over BSD, has that changed?23:39
daftykinsno it's still true, i think there is a Linux that supports it but i don't think it's Ubuntu23:39
wafflejockGrimsley, believe it just lags behind whereas you have more active development in BSD23:39
daftykinswhen i say support i don't mean "it works" i mean, they actually provide support23:40
Grimsleywell they're doing their best to make it the default FS though PCBSD is pushing forward with btfs as their default23:40
wafflejockpersonally haven't tried zfs or btrfs yet have heard nightmares of system problems with btrfs but nothing really except lack of features in zfs23:40
[7hunderbird]I got it to work daftykins in VMWare by tweaking a couple of things.  1) did the manual install 2) turned off 3d accel support on vmware fusion23:41
Guest21070<Captonjamason>  Are you there?23:41
alazare619the os im moving to has zfs support im on arch currently but will be moving back to debian base for my nas23:41
daftykins[7hunderbird]: hmm, ok - so it is the driver in the guest most likely - if you booted it with 3D again and pastebin'd the /var/log/Xorg.0.log i'd be interested to see what it's up to23:41
alazare619alot of os's have zfs support it works well but is mana (read ram) hungry23:42
GrimsleyI don't have much need for zfs at the moment so ext4 works well enough for me.23:42
daftykinsZFS is more than just an FS so you can't really compare it like that :)23:42

wafflejockGuest21070, yeah not sure about debugging that further really, typically only problems I've had with video were like daftykins already mentioned if there wasn't a driver installed yet so it wasn't getting any GPU acceleration but if that's the case would expect a core of your CPU to be consumed23:56
daftykinsandy__: was there an ubuntu support question in there somewhere? :)23:56
andy__Windows has no trouble with this.23:56
andy__I am wondering how to know which ethernet card is which in the network settings.23:57
andy__I think I want to only look at one network card, and remove the other one from being scanned.23:57
Guest21070wafflejock. ok, that makes sense, but what if the driver is incorrect. This is a notebook with an atom processor.23:58
wafflejockandy__, can check ifconfig and lshw23:59
wafflejockandy__, sudo lshw, will show all your hardware details the "Serial #" in there appears to match the "HW address" for ifconfig (think this is the MAC address but not positive)23:59
