daftykinsgrend: yep that disk has one bad sector pending and many errors, do you have your data backed up?00:01
daftykinsgrend: so personally i would 'dd' zero fill the disk to force it to remap any and all bad sectors it finds, but most likely due to the errors reported you need to replace it anyway00:02
daftykinsCoolmannorm: do you have a support question?00:02

daftykinsi looked at a Z97 and it has the same limitation00:05

cuddylierHow do I do that if it's an ISO on a CD?00:11

grendwithout re installing it00:12
daftykinsgrend: you don't. and it doesn't even matter if you do, that disk is fudged.00:12
grendwell how to do it? :D00:13
daftykinsyou don't00:13
daftykinsit is a disk firmware action00:13
grendwhat do u mean?00:13
daftykinsout of the reach of the OS.00:13

cuddylierBashing-om: DVD then yeah, Datacentre did it for me00:15
Bashing-omcuddylier: check the DVD's integrity; easy way is boot to the boot menu and "check disk for defects" option .00:16
daftykinsgrend: i've over 20 years experience with hardware, i've seen hundreds of disk failures. you're not the first to HOPE for a better outcome, but i'm telling you you're living on borrowed time :) have a backup of your data, buy a new disk - and throw this thing in the trash :)00:16

daftykinsto try and use it is simply foolish00:16
grenddaftykins: atm there is no new disk00:16
grendas simple as that00:17
daftykinsgrend: having one sector pending reallocation simply means only one has been found so far, there will likely be more00:17

Captonjamasonso in the past ive had my fare share problems with GRUB but this is insane, if you helped me in the past you know what my problem is, if you dont know then when i boot it throws me into the grub command line, i have A: reinstalled grub, Did not work B: Reinstalled it another time, did not help and C: Compleatly got rid of grub and replaced it with LILO and it still puts me into the GRUB command line, why is this happening00:17
MisterMomgrend, i agree with daftykins that disk will die the more you fool with it the more data you will loose00:18
Bashing-omcuddylier: Boot the liveDVD, and as soon as the bios screen clears, depress the right shift key -> language screen, press the escape key to accept the default -> boot menu .00:18
daftykinsgrend: only after a full wipe to ensure there really was only one bad sector00:18

daftykinseither work out how to use ISOs or reburn the CD with verification at a slower speed00:32
Bashing-omCaptonjamason: If it were me with a history of grub issues; I would do a full CHange Root, purge grub and do a fresh install of grub .00:32
Captonjamasonive done that00:32
Bashing-omcuddylier: You are back to square 1, md5sum the .iso file and reburn to DVD .00:33
cuddylierMhm yeah, I'll do that, thanks00:33
grenddaftykins: which file system ubuntu usually use?00:35
Bashing-omCaptonjamason: As you have done all the reinstallation of grub from scratch, and stiill with problems - I would suspect a bad hard drive . -> smartctl ?00:35
Captonjamasonran it, i dont know what is wrong00:35
grenddafty so something like mount -t ext4-3g /dev/dw-0 /media/disk -o force ?00:36
daftykinsthere is no such thing as ext4-3g00:36
grendit wont mount via disks as it was not shut clean last time00:36

daftykinswhy are you asking me about something i already stated i don't have experience with? :)00:36

daftykinsor run it in a screen session00:52
daftykinsyou can reattach to screen upon disconnection00:53

sorchuse the mysql console?01:02
daftykinsmysql -u user -p01:02
ki7rwis there a way for 2 bluetooth headsets to share the same source?01:03
daftykinski7rw: i doubt it01:04
jayjoright, that's what I was doing. sorry if this is clear. From there, it will be in the interpreter and not give me access to the terminal. Am I safe to disconnect if I started the screen session?01:04
daftykinsbut then i can count on one finger how many times i've touched bluetooth01:04
daftykinsjayjo: yes because you first detach with "ctrl+a, d" then do whatever01:05
daftykinsgive it a try.01:05
wldcordeiro__What's the name of the fallback dm? I'm getting annoyed with it appearing instead of sddm when I open my laptop up from a suspend01:05
ki7rwi didn't think so - i can see how it could be a security issue if someone could evesdrop on skype or cell phone conversations01:05
Flanneljayjo: with screen, while you've disconnected from screen, you didn't logout of the terminal (so the stuff will continue)01:05
barnexheh, I'm getting terrible performance, any ideas why?01:05
barnexit's soo bad I'm seeing keyboard lag01:05
barnexmeasured in seconds on spikes01:06
daftykinsbarnex: share a screen/paste of 'top' ?01:06
daftykinsand check dmesg for issues?01:06
barnexhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/11070937/ - that's the dmesg, seems to be full of flash related segfaults01:09
barnexbut that's not recent, since the supermeatboy and don't starve was hours ago01:09
barnexhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/11070965/ - here's top01:10
daftykinshmm intel driver hangs01:10
daftykinsyeah your load average is high01:10
daftykinsweird, you're using a lot of swap despite having RAM free01:11
daftykinsbarnex: has this happened regularly, or just this boot right now?01:11
barnexIt's not performing great and I sometimes get laggy keyboard or program switching01:11
barnexbut that's the new level of bad01:12
barnexthis boot has uptime of 5 days and it was ok most of the time01:12
daftykinsdo you have an SSD or a mechanical hard disk?01:12
barnexmechanical in raid 5 which wasn't smart01:12
barnexalso luks01:12
daftykinsso really, if this is the only time it's done it, there's not much to say01:13
jayjoOK to be painfully clear, and I'm sorry that I'm new to this, but I run screen, detach it, and then run the command while using the detached screen? And at that point because it is detached the session won't be ruined if I disconnect?01:13
jayjoso after I do ctl+a d to detach, I do screen -r get to back into the detached screen?01:13
barnexjayjo: I think the order should be run screen, run a command inside, detach01:14
daftykinsjayjo: you type screen, run "mysql -u user -p" to get the mysql terminal, then lets say you ran a query ending ; - you then press Ctrl+A, then single press 'd'01:14
barnexbut I'm not sure what you want01:14
jayjoOK, thanks I'm trying it now01:14
barnexhm, so… 25% load when listening to music online is fine on i5-4670K 3.4 Ghz?01:16
jayjoGreat that worked I think! screen must havea  catch in place to grab ctl+a all the time, because when I ran the sql command I thought my cursor would've still be accepting inputs ontly into the mysql command line01:16
barnexseems like everything is so resource intensive nowadays01:16
daftykinsjayjo: mmm it's an intermediary layer that understands that stuff01:17

barnexthat's worth looking into01:23
barnexalthough that on-die is just because I broke my graphics card recently01:23

daftykinswhich one?01:24
daftykinsright well i've never seen anyone with such hardware have issues like you are, so i'd clean out that home personally01:25

daftykinsif there is, your research would've turned it up though right?02:26
barnexI think it might be one of those things, that are so simple nobody bothers to make a command for it and package it, since you can write a script for it in half an hour02:26
barnexand this half hour probably includes learning how to write scripts in bash :P02:28
daftykinsi would have just sorted my pics from the beginning *cough*02:29
barnexidentify -verbose path/to/image | grep date:create:02:30
barnexgets you create date02:30
barnex| awk -e '{print ($2)}' | awk -F- -e '{print ($1)}' - gets you a year02:34
barnex| awk -e '{print ($2)}' | awk -F- -e '{print ($2)}' - gets you a month02:34
barnexstore those in variable02:34
barnexmkdir -p $YEAR/$MONTH02:34
barnexmove $PHOTO $YEAR/$MONTH02:34
barnexand you're done02:35
daftykinsbe nicer if you took that to #bash really :>02:35
barnexdo this for every photo with find or bash loop if they are all in the same dir02:35
barnexIf I took that to #bash they'd probably tell me that I'm terrible and this sucks :P02:35
barnexBecause it probably does02:35
barnexpoint is, it's simple enough to not require a commandline tool02:36

justdaveI have a machine hooked up to a TV, and the BIOS can't drive the TV's native resolution (but Ubuntu does just fine once X11 starts and I get a desktop)03:09
justdavesince I can't actually see the boot menu is there a way to make grub tell it to boot from a USB stick without interactoin?03:09
dingurtjustdave: I know it's a silly suggestion, but have you considered just temporarily hooking it up to a monitor to enable the setting in the BIOS?03:11
daftykinsor learn the boot menu key03:11
justdavedingurt: yeah, stongly suspected that's what'd have to be done, but that involves finding one :-)03:11
dingurtif he can't see the option, then he won't know which one to select03:11

geoffmccsven86: i have not done it with raid, but maybe can help. Have you setup your exports directory03:25
sven86yes i have, and they hang when i do sudo exportfs -a03:26
geoffmccsven86: one min, lemme go through my setup03:26
geoffmccsven86: i had issues at first but it was because of /etc/idmapd.conf  what does yours look like03:29
geoffmccsven86: also is this for just local use03:30
sven86geoffmcc: yes, it's for local use for now. I'm just trying to setup my kodi frontend to see the directories on my mythbuntu backend03:31

geoffmccsven86: lemme do some more looking03:41
geoffmccsven86: also you have installed nfs-common on client?03:42

daftykinsviyyer: is this a desktop?03:43
daftykinsah no M, so laptop surely03:43
viyyerdaftykins: should I try the other drivers? I have already tried the noueau and nvidia-331-update. nouveau shows low resolution like 640x480 and update doesn't show anything03:43
daftykinsthat's... old and technically quadro i think03:43
daftykinsyeah try 30403:43
viyyerdaftykins: nope, its a laptop03:44
viyyerdaftykins: its a quadro processor03:44

sven86i've read that one03:45
daftykinsviyyer: sticking to LTS was probably wiser for such age hardware, but yeah see how nvidia-304 grabs you.03:45
sven86geoffmcc: but the freezing and hanging is happening on the server side03:46
viyyerok .. let me enable nouveau and then switch to 30403:46
daftykinsenable? just purge nvidia* and install nvidia-30403:46
viyyerdaftykins: oh ok03:46
viyyerdaftykins: could this have been because of kernel upgrade as well?03:47
=== malimbar is now known as Wolfgang

geoffmccsven86: hmm. All i did was sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server. Setup /etc/exports with /media/usb/media,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) and then sudo service nfs-kernel-server start03:49
daftykinsviyyer: just moving up to 15.04 during the upgrade? yeah that kernel change to 3.19 would change a few things03:50
geoffmccsven86: on the client side i setup fstab nfs-server:/media/usb/media    /media/usb   nfs   auto  0  0, as well as set the Domain = localdomain in /etc/idmapd.conf03:51
sven86geoffmcc: yeah, i did that too, but when i try to do sudo service nfs-kernel-server start, it hangs03:51
most_wantedhow can i add a public key for apt-get?03:52
geoffmccsven86: only other thing i can really say is I did all this on Ubuntu Server 15.04 and my client is Jessie 803:53
sven86geoffmcc: okay, thanks03:54
geoffmccsven86: sorry. Like i said I had issues until i set on both sides the Domain = localdomain, but at no time was there any hang on server side, so you are having a different issue03:54

andrewjs18daftykins, main config04:21
daftykinsi always make a backup and edit direct, you'll find it's pretty separated these days though04:21
daftykinsseparate portions all over the shop :P04:22
andrewjs18yeah, I've noticed.  I had just created a custom.conf and adding some configs in there that I noticed were also in server.conf..I guess the server.conf config options were overriding the ones I placed inside custom.conf04:22
daftykinsyeah hardly worth listing things twice04:23
daftykinscan't say i've ever known of doing that one separate04:23
andrewjs18sorry, it was security.conf04:23
andrewjs18in older versions of apache, there wasn't a separate security.conf file, was there?04:24

AlexisBRENONhateball, yes, it has07:38
hateballAlexisBRENON: can you manually start "/usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &" and see if things work as expected?07:39
AlexisBRENONhateball, I've got a warning : "Unable to determine the session we are in: No session for pid 18252". Then it exits.07:40
Sefid_parwould somebody help me by this error? http://www.tddft.org/pipermail/octopus-users/2014-October/004446.html07:41
Sefid_parThe answer in that page could not help07:41
hateballAlexisBRENON: hmm, you could try killing the polkitd process, I think trying to start the agent will launch it again07:42
hateballAlexisBRENON: failing that, restarting your session/machine should do it07:42
AlexisBRENONhateball, I killed polkitd (with sudo), then launching the service restart it, but the service exits with the same error as previously.07:44

Thetegoogle don't know either07:44
hateballAlexisBRENON: Hmmm, afraid I don't know how to fix that... I'm afraid you'll have to wait/google07:44

meandrainI've installed ubuntu 15.04 in a virtual machine and the time is right after a while. My question is: does ubuntu by default run some time sync app? ntpdate is installed by default but is not running (Loaded: not-found (sudo service ntp status ● ntp.service Loaded: not-found  Reason: No such file or directory)10:01
ubuntu885انا موجود فی الویب10:02
Basz0rmeandrain: My advice is to install ntp for that :) (apt-get install ntp). You can configure servers in /etc/ntp.conf10:03
basil2xSometimes, virtual machines just aren't as fast as their non-virtual counterparts.10:03
Rorymeandrain: No. You can add a cron to run it10:04
Rorymeandrain: I have a file /etc/cron.daily/ntpdate containing the following10:04
Rorymeandrain: /usr/sbin/ntpdate ntp.ubuntu.com10:04
meandrainI will install ntp. So there is no time sync installed by default? I am asking because it keeps time properly. I also have a CentOS in virtual and it does not keep time like ubuntu10:04
dutchkimblenoob question, any help is appreciated. i want to install ubuntu 15.04 using software raid (RAID 0) on a laptop that has two 128gb SSDs. this site (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID) says i need the alternate install of ubuntu but I cannot find which one it is. any suggestions?10:05
geirhaIt's probably the VM that keeps the time in sync with the host OS10:05
meandrainis there a way to find out if ntpdate is run by some script?10:06
Basz0rmeandrain: Good question, i'm not sure of ntp is being installed by default. For your CentOS machine, check /etc/localtime for the timezone (I make a symlink to /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam)10:06
Basz0rmeandrain: check /etc/crontab. crontab -l. or cat /etc/cron.*/*10:06

meandrainor when there's traffic on it10:10
geirhameandrain: in the case of your virtual machine, probably whenever start and/or resume the VM. Because then it has to connect to the virtual netowrk interface10:11
meandraingeirha: is still weritd, the virtual guest is started two days ago and time is synced. Same for centos, still time is way off10:12
meandraingeirha: maybe it syncs other times too, like for example when I ssh into machine I have info regarding packets that must be updated. So it checks for that, maybe it also syncs the time10:13
geirhameandrain: possibly. It installs something in /etc/logcheck too, not sure what that is10:16
icedwaterI'm working with nvidia 840m/ubuntu 14.04.2. All versions of nvidia drivers seem to cause lightdm to instantly log back out upon login, does anyone know a fix that works?10:23
icedwaterAskubuntu.com has too many solutions to sanely attempt.10:23
meandraingeirha: I think that /etc/logcheck/ignore.d.server/ntpdate  is added to logcheck ignore so it will not log ntpdate time adjustments10:25

the_trickyanyone to help with the front panel audio problem?10:35
the_trickymy headphones aren't working10:35
Rorythe_tricky: What have you tried?10:36
Rorythe_tricky: Is the volume for the front audio jack turned up from 0, and unmuted?10:37
the_trickyRory: changed BIOS settings, but that didn't help10:37
Rory99% it's the volume is turned down10:37
the_trickyRory: and where do I checked that?10:37
the_tricky* check10:37
Rorythe_tricky: click the volume icon in the top panel and click Sound Settings10:37
Rorythe_tricky: the_tricky On the first tab, "output", make sure the correct device is selected in the left panel, and that the output volume at the bottom isn't muted10:38
the_trickyRory: they are both 100% and unmuted ^(10:38
Rorythe_tricky: Has your front audio jack EVER worked (in other operating systems) or is this the first time you've ever tried to use it?10:39
the_trickyRory: yes, it did work, but I forgot about it quite long ago10:39
the_trickyRory: and trying now I get no result10:39
Rorythe_tricky: when you say they are "both" 100% and unmuted, what is the additional entry?10:40

marbangensopen an terminal and type alsamixer10:41
the_trickyRory: I am not quite sure about that, but I have digital and analog sound options10:41
RoryI like the program "pavucontrol" for audio settings, although you have to install it10:41
Rorythe_tricky: OK, the digital one will be for your HDMI output, and the analogue one is the one you want10:41
Rorythe_tricky: if you install pavucontrol from Software Centre and run it, you can go to the Configuration tab and select the analogue one as the default output device10:42
Rorythe_tricky: There might be other ways to do that, but pavucontrol is the one I know10:42

Rorythe_tricky: Yeah sorry, my bad, I just saw the link at the top of the first one that said it was out of date10:56

the_trickyRory: I assumed that if USBs are fine, so should jacks11:01
the_trickyRory: is that right?11:01
Rorythe_tricky: Not necessarily. The analogue audio jacks are connected to the audio interface, which is separate from USB11:02

phveektorgoogle chrome12:12
phveektorshould i change to chromium/12:12

phveektorwill try it out12:13
jnoob22have you tried starting it through a terminal to see if it spits out any errors?12:13
jnoob2214.04 and 14.10 should both be solid.12:13

phveektorit does that12:13
phveektorgives some stupid error12:14

jnoob22good deal.12:14
phveektorapart from my chrome12:14

BhaalAnyone have any idea why Gnome won't run in xinerama mode in 15.04???12:27
ubottuxinerama is an extension to !X to use two or more physical displays as one large virtual display. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/XineramaHowTo - See also !DualHead12:31
BhaalBluesKaj: I'm running 6 monitors across 2 GTX660's ... Worked good in 14.10 ... Now neither KDE or Gnome will work in 15.0412:32
BhaalI know there is an issue with Qt 5.4 and xinerama ... And it's fixed in Qt 5.5, but that's still in alpha..12:33
BhaalSo that is the given reason for KDE not working, but I am unsure how that affects Gnome?  Gnome uses Qt now?12:34

shlomocomputerIs there a way to manually mount partitions during installation?15:40
shlomocomputerEx.: Format an exotic filesystem, install, then chroot and rebuild initramfs and grub-install manually15:41
nith1210shlomocomputer: If you're using the ubuntu livecd/usb, I do this by going to "try" first, then poping open a root terminal15:42
nith1210shlomocomputer: The installer works as an app from within the "try" so I can manually do pre and post installation work.15:42
shlomocomputersure, but then when you "Choose something else" in the GUI for partitioning, you can't select a filesystem if Ubiquity doesn't know about it15:43
nith1210If you go to try, open a terminal, apt-get install your exotic filesystem, then run ubiquity afterwards, it still doesn't see said fs?15:43
shlomocomputerEven something as simple as, "Use my swap partition that I created with mkswap -L MyLabel /dev/sda3"15:44
BluesKajno option to format for ext4? ...never used that option since I usually do the manual option15:44
shlomocomputernith1210:  nope15:44
nith1210shlomocomputer: interesting. Sorry, i've no idea. I follow a similar set to setup my raid but I suppose it's different.15:45
shlomocomputernith1210:  I lucked out with my current setup b/c I formatted my root partition ext4 and then added Flashcache later, which you can do15:46
shlomocomputerbut suppose I was working with bcache instead.  There, you have to prepare the backing store prior to mkfs/mount15:47

solsTiCehi. I have an intel i3 using intel_pstate and powersave governor the default. It is supposed to run at minimum frequency but in fact frquency is at 1.7MHz the max being 1.8MHz. so why is it so high ? cpu usage is not high. I hav eonly chromium running16:18
MonkeyDustshlomocomputer  yes, you can download it from a live session, but then save it to a safe place16:19
shlomocomputerMonkeyDust:  Well, I guess I meant, is the text-based installer itself a package that I could install into the live session (the way you e.g. install xfsprogs if you need to mount xfs during a live session), and then run within the desktop LiveCD16:21
penguserhi, I am wondering if someone can give me feedback about upgrades from 14.10 to 15.04 - how did it work for you? etc.16:21
shlomocomputerit would be like, server-style installation of desktop Ubuntu16:22
OerHekspenguser, please don't poll, what is your issue with upgrading?16:22
penguserI found 'how-to's' - it seems straightforward but I wonder if it is like that for most users :)16:22
OerHeks1894 answers?16:22
vonsyd0wshlomocomputer, are you going to run unity or another desktop environment?16:22

=== kpease_ is now known as kpease
shlomocomputerI guess I or someone would just sift through Ubiquity source code and eventually come up with a walk-through.  I certainly would love an Arch-style fine-grained installation in conjunction with Ubuntu.  Best of both worlds IMO16:24
EriC__penguser: purge unneeded ppa's and you should be ok16:24
EriC__shlomocomputer: like what do you want to customize?16:25
MonkeyDustshlomocomputer  if you're skilled enough, feel free to contribute to ubuntu16:25
EriC__you pick the locale when you start the installer, and you can partition manually.. arch you just have to do everything manually16:26
penguserEriC__, sorry, but, how do I know which ppa's are unneeded?16:26
=== kpease is now known as kpease_
EriC__penguser: if you're not using them remove them, ppa's usually break upgrades16:27
OerHeksAll ppa's are disabled during upgrade, btw16:27
shlomocomputerEriC__:  For example, I want to manually create a swap partition with a label.  Or, I'm using LXLE which doesn't have xfsprogs by default, install it, format root partition xfs, mount it, install Ubuntu, chroot post-install, apt-get install xfsprogs (into the target) and redo mkinitramfs/grub-install16:28
=== yCrazyEdd is now known as CrazyEddy
EriC__penguser: ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ should show the ppa sources16:29
jzp113hi someone use nodejs?16:30
EriC__shlomocomputer: you can do all that in ubuntu already, create the xfs and swap and choose them in the installer16:31
shlomocomputerjzp113:  Node, nodebody ujses nodejs.  (sorry)16:31
shlomocomputerEriC__:  can't if Ubiquity doesn't know about a certain fs16:31
jzp113shlomocomputer, I use apt-get install nodejs16:31
shlomocomputerand in the case of mkswap -L MyLabel, Ubiquity insists on reformatting your swap space no matter what.  No option to use without format16:32
EriC__shlomocomputer: pretty sure it knows about xfs16:32
shlomocomputerjzp113:  What's your question?16:32
RNevillehow do I check for system updates for Ubuntu16:33
EriC__shlomocomputer: just change the label later then, or don't pick it as swap and add it to your fstab16:33
EriC__RNeville: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade16:33
jzp113I input node in commend it show me /usr/bin/env: node: No such file or directory16:33
RNevillethx EriC__16:33
shlomocomputerEriC__:  Not LXLE, as I mentioned.  Or suppose I want f2fs on stock Ubuntu 14.04.2.  Or Reiserfs.16:33
jzp113but I input nodejs is all right how to change nodejs to node16:34
EriC__shlomocomputer: it supports reiserfs16:34
shlomocomputerjzp113:  add a line "alias node=nodejs" in ~/.bashrc?16:35
shlomocomputerEriC__:  F2fs then.  You need a PPA and the userspace tools16:35
shlomocomputerOr zfsonlinux16:36
shlomocomputerPoint is, mount partitions manually and then install packages to the target as normal16:36
MonkeyDustshlomocomputer  what is your end goal in ubuntu?16:37

EriC__shlomocomputer: ubuntu doesn't support f2fs out of the box, arch does recently16:42

jzp113making the link.and run the node doesn't work shlomocomputer16:43
shlomocomputerEriC__:  Thanks.  My question is not about filesystems but rather about the ability to manually install userspace tools for any arbitrary exotic filesystem and _mount_partitions_manually_ pre-installation (<- the three active words)16:43
shlomocomputerjzp113:  It has to be executable:  sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/theLink16:44
EriC__my point is that ubuntu won't do that, i think16:45
capruroshlomocomputer: I don't know if exist a distro of ubuntu whit a manual installation, you can try to press Alt+F1 or install in live. But I'm not sure that's work16:45
EriC__so in order for that to work, you'd have to add the support to ubiquity16:45
shlomocomputerEriC__:  yep, seems so.16:46
shlomocomputerA walk-through on the wiki or in the forums shouldn't be a horrible challenge16:46
EriC__i'd like to see that happen as an option, but i sincerely doubt it would happen, a manual install like arch16:47

inconceivableJust received an old Windows XP computer tower, but am lacking an extra monitor right now. Is there any way to send the vga output from the XP to my Ubuntu laptop's VGA port so that it could be displayed on my laptop screen?18:37
daftykinsinconceivable: no that'll be VGA out only.18:38
daftykinsalso XP era machine? probably best going right back where you got it :P18:38
finleyNo vga can't be used as a input (unless you have a special graphics card) there are network solution though that you can use, but they can be unreliable18:38

n3ss3swow that was easy thanks daftykins18:55
n3ss3sI had sort of done that, except I didn't delete extended in the middle18:55
daftykinsah, surely it would've disallowed resizing sda1 with it still there18:56
crumprgood evening, is there a way to add an openvpn connection to networkmanager (and adding the password for the key) via script??18:56
n3ss3syeah I didnt resize sda1, I resized extended to take up the space18:56
n3ss3sI thought extended would actually be used18:56
daftykinsextended partitions are simply a 'frame' for logical drives to exist within, in your case the only logical drive was the swap partition18:57

FiReSTaRThey guys... the uuid for my / partition changed due to an accidental unplug.. the solution i came across involves specifying the new uuid in /boot/grub/grub.cfg will that automatically get written into the mbr on reboot or will i still have to run update-grub?20:16
EriC__geri: try PATH=$PATH:/usr/share/bash-completion/completions20:16
EriC__then run it again20:17
EriC__FiReSTaRT: you need to run sudo update-grub, and the mbr won't be touched btw20:17
FiReSTaRTEriC__: so i'd correct the uuid in /boot/grub/grub.cfg and then run update grub and that should fix the grub error?20:18
Jordan_UFiReSTaRT: Wht do you mean by "changed due to an accidental unplug"?20:18
EriC__FiReSTaRT: you don't need to edit grub.cfg , update-grub will make the file for you20:19
* zykotick9 has never heard of UUIDs changing before...20:19
OerHeksi wonder if that partition is healthy now.20:20
Jordan_UFiReSTaRT: Just unplugging a drive without umounting it first can do some bad things, but I wouldn't ever expect it to change the fileystem's UUID. I highly suspect that you're misinterpreting your current situation.20:20
FiReSTaRTEriC__: the problem is that it didn't.. i accidentally unplugged the drive with the / partition and turned on the machine.. after i reconnected it, i got a grub error basically telling me it can't boot off whatever the uuid there used to be.. i can still boot off that partition if i select it from the BIOS boot menu20:20

jarlopezHey all. When I log in, my screen immediately goes black, only to attempt to ficker back on in ~5 seconds, and then go back again (rinse and repeat). Any tips on how to debug and fix? I've attempted a lot in the past, from re-configuring compiz to defaults to re-installing my graphics drivers to re-installing unity20:52
FiReSTaRTand that makes a good bandaid, so now all i gotta do is figure out why the bios is not seeing the ssd all of a sudden20:52
FiReSTaRTthanks :)20:52
EriC__FiReSTaRT: yeah, no problem :)20:52
EriC__FiReSTaRT: maybe if you remove the cmos battery?20:53
FiReSTaRTEriC__: that was the next step but don't wanna mess with that until i move into our flat20:54
FiReSTaRTliving out of boxes and need this comp for work20:57

FoddI've not got a CD drive, only a 32MB usb stick21:05
Foddsadly cannot go out and get a bigger flash drive atm.21:05

EriC__ok, you can try the netinstall21:07
ubottuUbuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate21:07
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD21:07

Foddthank you for all your help :)21:24
geriJordan_U: i installed vivado to /opt/xillinx/vivado for root user ... later i changed to to user ... using chown... is that allowed?21:25
Jordan_Ugeri: You should *not* make /opt/ owned by a non-root user. If you want to install software as your user, keep it in /home/you/. What is your end goal? What are you trying to install/use/do?21:25
gerivivado suggested this default path to be to /opt21:25
Jordan_Ugeri: Why did you want to change the owner?21:25
geriJordan_U: bc i dont want to always start the vivado with root permission21:26
Jordan_Ugeri: You don't need to be root to run an executable owned by root. 99% of your executable files are owned by root, but have permissions such that they can be read and executed (but *not* written to) by any user.21:27
geriJordan_U: i understand you... but to allowed to install to /opt i need to have root permission21:28
Jordan_Ugeri: Yes. Why do you have a problem with that?21:29
geriJordan_U: i dont like to use sudo to start vivado21:29
geriJordan_U: whats why i changed to permission for Vivado to a user permission21:29
geriJordan_U: http://ideone.com/RYbdqJ21:30
gerithe question was if thats allowed ?21:30
gerichown -R ...21:30
Jordan_Ugeri: I just told you that you do *NOT* need to run Vivado as root just because Vivado's files are owned by root. If anything, you should be use chmod to make the files world readable (and executable, for the executable files only).21:31
geriJordan_U: it didnt let me install to /opt without beeing sudo21:31
OerHeksgeri, read carefull:  install <> run21:32
Jordan_Ugeri: Installing software and running it are two very different things.21:32
Jordan_Ugeri: You *do* need to be root to install software to /opt/. That is normal, and should stay that way. You do *not* need to be root to run such software from /opt/. If you're getting errors running Vivado as non-root, the correct tool to fix it is "chmod", *not* chown.21:33
OerHeksmaybe read some vivado manual what to do after install > http://svenand.blogdrive.com/archive/167.html#.VVEf9ie1FBc21:34
Jordan_Ugeri: So to be completely clear, no you should *not* have any files in /opt/ that are owned by any user other than root.21:34
Jordan_Ugeri: You also should probably not be running vivado as root. Those two statements are not incompatible.21:34
gerii dont run it as root now21:35
=== greyback__ is now known as greyback
geribut can i run it as a user when the permission is root?21:35
Jordan_Ugeri: Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I have said yes to this many times already.21:36
Jordan_Ugeri: Change the owner for all files in /opt/ back to "root" and if you get an error message when running vivado as your user, please pastebin the error message and we will help you fix things properly.21:37

brian_b[repeating since I think it was lost in the conversation flow when I asked before] hi guys. how much sympathy will I get for what seems to be Xorg/kernel issues with i915 under 14.04.2, should I bother to fill out a bug report or just update to 15.04 before testing/reporting?21:40
brian_bseemed to start happening in the last week or two after an update, there have been a strong of kernel & xorg updates21:42
greybackbrian_b: 14.04 is a LTS release, we support it for 5 years. Please report your bug21:42
k1l_brian_b: what issues?21:43
geriJordan_U: wait a sec21:43
Jordan_Ugeri: Please pastebin the output of "ls -l -R /home/redpitaya/.Xilinx/".21:43
geriJordan_U: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11085405/21:44
gerithats now correct21:44
gerii add those21:44
geriJordan_U: http://ideone.com/RYbdqJ21:47
geriJordan_U: all here now21:47
Jordan_Ugeri: So the problem appears to actually be caused by the fact that when you ran (not installed, ran) vivado as root previously (which you shouldn't have ever done) it made some directories in your $HOME that were then owned by root. So the proper fix is probably to "chown -r redpitaya:redpitaya /home/redpitaya/.Xilinx/", though there might be other things that also need fixing.21:48
geriJordan_U: and the opt?21:48
Jordan_Ugeri: Should stay exactly how it is, at least as far as that error message is concerned. If after fixing this we get another error message it might imply that something in /opt/ needs to be changed also.21:49
Jordan_Ugeri: Files in /home/you/ should generally be owned by you. Files in /opt/ should be owned by root.21:50
=== kalen is now known as kalen_not-here
geriok ... i installed vivado via sudo ./installfile ...21:50

alephantokwex: is that a typo for Evernote?22:53
mmerceralephant: hmmm... wait... thinking about it.... your dhcp server should be bound to one of those ip addresses, not to all of them, it should be based on the pool/router definition22:53
okwexalephant, there exists nevernote, or, more precisely, nixnote22:54
mmercerare you seeing it respond based on any of the ip addresses ( assuming due to aliasing )22:54

EriC^^it said it installed dkms and rebuilt stuff23:34
ablest1980i cancelled in time23:34
daftykinsEriC^^: hrmm maybe it did it for the wrong kernel?23:34
moros-olethrosi missed alot, didn't i?23:35
EriC^^daftykins: i tried rebooting and reinstalling, let me check23:35
daftykinsmoros-olethros: no idea what you're talking about. got a support question?23:35
ablest1980maybe xglrx then updates?23:35
daftykinsablest1980: why do you keep typing xglrx?23:36
daftykinsablest1980: you must be a troll since we both told you to install one thing and you're still asking.23:36
ablest1980im getting the updates one23:36
moros-olethrosOOOOK. Let's say I want to set up a server made up of nothing but Virtualbox virtual machines23:36
moros-olethroshow would i do that?23:36
daftykinsmoros-olethros: look into virtualbox headless23:37
daftykinsbut vbox would be the wrong tech to use for such a thing23:37
moros-olethrosI see...23:37
moros-olethroswhat would be best, then?23:37
daftykinssomething like vmware ESX or KVM23:37

moros-olethrosThank you, legion23:39
ersteHi, I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, and there's a process "init" that has 100% cpu use.. and I found this solution, but it's from about 3 years ago: http://linuxbytknalla.blogspot.com/2012/12/init-process-at-100-cpu-usage.html23:40
EriC^^daftykins: any ideas? http://paste.ubuntu.com/11086705/23:41
EriC^^also this warning comes up update-alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallation of alternative /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/ld.so.conf because link group x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf is broken23:41
daftykinsEriC^^: hrmm does Xorg.0.log still speak of no module found?23:42
EriC^^i'm trying sudo updatedb now to run locate23:42
daftykinsroger that23:42
Bashing-omEriC^^: Maybe "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/ld.so.con  " http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2276537 will work for you ?23:46
EriC^^Bashing-om: thanks, checking23:47
EriC^^daftykins: the module seems there i think /lib/modules/3.13.0-52-generic/updates/dkms/fglrx_updates.ko23:48
Bashing-omEriC^^: Also ATI with FGLRX requires ' sudo amdconfig --initial ' prior to rebooting .23:48
EriC^^Bashing-om: it says no supported adapters found23:49
EriC^^i've used it before though and i didn't type that to get it working23:49
EriC^^it's still odd it says it doesn't find anything though..23:49
Bashing-omEriC^^: Yikes, that can no be a good thing ! We know the hardware is there .23:50
daftykinsmaybe that range of M model isn't supported by that driver version?23:50
EriC^^Bashing-om: ok, i tried removing the alternative thing and reinstall fglrx-updates23:50
Aramilcan someone please help me im getting a login loop and i tried everything i could from a google search im thinking i might of f#@ked up my fstab23:50
EriC^^daftykins: i don't know, it's in the recommended drivers and it used to work23:50
EriC^^maybe with this kernel it doesnt work?23:51
EriC^^i dont know if it matters but i installed the driver from amd's website once and then removed it23:51
daftykinshrmm did you use their uninstaller?23:52
EriC^^couldn't find it :D it's supposed to be in /usr/share/ati but it wasn't23:52
EriC^^i just purged it23:52
EriC^^and the pc wouldn't boot with the opensource one, as much as i tried to reinstall it etc. so i had to reinstall the amd one23:53
EriC^^until a dist-upgrade fixed stuff i think23:53
EriC^^after that i could use the open source one again23:53
mekhamidaftykins currently 50% through pass 1, it caught one error on test 4. is it common to have a few errors?23:54
daftykinsmekhami: no you shouldn't even have one23:55
ersteHi, anyone with Ubuntu 14.04 and having the process "init" using 100% of your CPU ???23:55
Aramilcan someone please help me im getting a login loop and i tried everything i could from a google search im thinking i might of f#@ked up my fstab23:56
mekhamidaftykins is there a repair action or is it just new ram time23:56
daftykinsmekhami: is this a desktop?23:56
daftykinsmekhami: 2+ modules?23:56
=== vance is now known as Guest4606
daftykinsnewish machine?23:57
mekhaminot particularly23:57
daftykinswhat i would do, is take both out - (with mains power removed) and clean the gold contacts on the modules with a pencil eraser. then clean the slots a bit with an old (but not dirty) toothbrush. after that, memtest each module separately by having just one in at a time in the first slot23:57
daftykinsthat'll let you work out whether one is bad or both23:58
EriC^^Bashing-om: that did it! thanks!23:58
Bashing-omericr: Not to detract from your train of thought, but what does the repo offer for drivers ? ' sudo ubuntu-drivers list '23:58
mekhamisounds good daftykins thanks23:58
daftykinsEriC^^ Bashing-om - weird i thought all amdconfig did was spit out a xorg.conf with 'fglrx' forced as the choice?23:58
daftykinsmekhami: np23:59
EriC^^daftykins: i meant the update-alternatives command in the website Bashing-om gave me23:59
daftykinsah i missed that one23:59
