ChaserHi, I wish to add custom users to /etc/passwd file (and /etc/group). Is there way to add these custom entries to a different file and the login authentication mechanism picks them up ? I want to keep /etc/passwd distribution default and have my own entries in a separate file if thats possible.00:01
ChaserLike where you define your own cron entries in /etc/cron.d etc00:02

doctorlyAnyone know how to turn off weird kernel output on 14.04 with kernel 4.1.100:21
doctorlyBy that I mean, it is like tripple overlapped characters and the screen flashes white once.00:21
wafflejockdoctorly: just during startup?00:22
doctorlywafflejock: Yeah, before ubuntu loads up, just the kernel output, but turning off kernel output in grub didn't fix it.00:23
daftykinswhere did you get that kernel?00:23
wafflejockdoctorly: typically the thing that shows the loading screen to not show the verbose output going on is called plymouth00:24
IvoahDo I want LVM on a new Ubuntu install?00:25
doctorlywafflejock: could you rephrase that? I am misunderstanding  what you meant.00:25
daftykinsIvoah: not if you want to keep things simple.00:25
doctorlydaftykins: one moment, let check my links.00:25
IvoahWhat are the disadvantages to LVM?00:25
wafflejockdoctorly: just the package/program that runs to show you some loading screen instead of the kernel output is called plymouth if you search on ubuntu 14.04 plymouth you may come up with something00:25
wafflejockdoctorly: I've had times I needed to mess with plymouth's configuration or reinstall for it to work properly00:26
daftykinsIvoah: having to learn how to use it00:26
daftykinsit's mostly for resizing of disks and partitions after the fact.00:26
doctorlydaftykins: it was an official kernel from the ppa. kernel.ubuntu.com.00:27
doctorlywafflejock: Oh alright, I will try to mess with that quick.00:27
daftykinshrmm, those are really only for testing - why are you using it?00:27
doctorlydaftykins: yeah mainline00:28
doctorlyIt adds support for trackpad on my computer and is fairly stable, just caused some weird kernel output on start, figure I just need to reconfigure something. I will try what wafflejock suggested now.00:29
doctorlyI think it is considered extremely stable.00:29

Or1onhave anyone experience xwindow crash & logout when using chrome maximized in Unity? I can trigger the crash by using the mouse wheel to change tabs. I can force a crash by switching a lot of tabs with the wheel.01:16
Or1onThis is on ubuntu 14.0401:17
Or1onchrome 44.0.2403.155 (64-bit) and intel GPU  HD4600 with i915 driver01:18
Or1onI really like unity... there used to be a 2D Unity that was nice... Is there any other alternative that is similar to the unity experience?01:21
wileeeOr1on, If I rolled you down the stairs, how would you feel, you're somewhat doing the same.01:21
Or1onwileee, I don't get the analogy. please explain.01:22
wileeeOr1on, using the wheel like that kicks out random code is my guess, your not going from a to b directly, the hardware/software may be over run.01:23
wileeeshould work depending on a number of factors is all it would seem, just guessing though01:24
Or1onwileee, I used that without problems with the nvidia driver/card. and what I described was only how to trigger the crash quickly. it took me a real long time to find out that using the wheel to change tabs created a crash01:24
wileeecool, just wondering myself01:25

I can see it from My windows 10 system but do not have access to a fold that I am sharing on the network. i used nataulis to make the share. How can I fix this so I can acceess the folder for reading and writing?> I have ssh access only to the ubuntu system right now (too lazy to go to the basement)'01:51
Stanley00Emanuel: you can use winscp to copy files/folders with ssh01:52

joralLeo7Mario, sounds like an ACPI issue to me, something isn't sleeping correctly.05:42
Leo7Marioi'm in my bios right now05:42
Leo7Marioand my computer has cooled down a bit05:42
Leo7Mariolike from 70 C to about 40 C05:43
daftykins##hardware :)05:43
joralLeo7Mario, I will say what you don't want to think though, it is possible the ACPI issue is at the hw level and not sw05:43
Johnny_LinuxmmmMMMmmm, toasted card    w/cheese05:43
Leo7Mariowell i did build the computer with my problematic ubuntu install05:44
daftykinssuper helpful there, Johnny_Linux05:44
joralLeo7Mario, what everyone else is saying, it is likely hardware05:44
Leo7Marioit kinda looks like an overheating issue05:44
Leo7Marioit is summer where i live and my fans are kinda weak.05:45
Johnny_Linuxprolly need to takw a can of air and clean things05:45
daftykinsplease take this topic to the relevant channel ##hardware05:45
Leo7Marioit doesn't do this in lxdm05:45
Leo7Mariobut it does do it in gdm and lightdm05:45
Leo7Mariomy friends who like to use my computer are all linux noobs05:46
Leo7Mariolike they litterally don't know anything about basic terminal commands like cd or ls or cat05:47
daftykinsthat's nice, but you're chatting right now in a support channel - please take the chat to #ubuntu-offtopic :)05:47
Leo7Marioi'm just explaining my situation05:47
daftykinsand none of it is relevant05:47
Leo7Marioso i was wondering if there is a fix to gdm that stops this issue05:48
Leo7Marioor maybe since it's multiple desktop managers it actually might be an x11 issue05:48
daftykinssomeone said you claimed 14.04 won't work on your machine, why was that?05:48
Leo7Mariobecause my graphics card05:48
daftykinswhat of it? legacy AMD?05:48
Leo7Marioand i really don't want to deal with package conflicts right now05:48
daftykinswell if you have temperature issues then there's no action to be taken but to resolve those first05:49
daftykinsyou don't use software to get around hardware issues like temperature05:49
Leo7Mariowell i am in the bios right now05:49
daftykinsthe system doesn't idle properly there.05:49
Leo7Mariobooting into ubuntu05:50
daftykinsyou need to turn it off and investigate the temperature issue05:50
Leo7Mariowell i really can't since it's late at night05:50
daftykinsbest stop talking about it and save it for morning then05:51
Leo7Mariowell is there any way to fix this issue05:51
Leo7Mariothe issue is whenever i log out or switch users05:51
daftykinsi already said resolve temperatures first, do you not read?05:52
Leo7Mariook fine05:52
Leo7Marioi'm probably gonna put a big fan right next to my computer then05:52
joralLeo7Mario, that doesn't explain why its overheating and can actually make airflow through the case worse if your not careful05:53
cfhowlettLeo7Mario, or (and this is crazy, I know ...) get off the internet/irc and take your hardware to a computer technician?  IF you actually want it fixed ...05:53
Leo7Marioactually i built my computer myself05:53
daftykinsapparently it doesn't have enough cooling :)05:53
cfhowlettLeo7Mario, so it would seem.05:54
joralLeo7Mario, gonna take a wild guess that you did not use a grounding strap05:54
Leo7Marioi did05:54
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!05:54

Leo7Marioi'll try it again in an hour05:55
joralis there anything that could override the blacklist.local.conf file, or otherwise explain why a blacklisted modules is still being loaded at boot?05:56
ayushwhat joral05:57
joralayush: I have a module that I have added to blacklist.local.conf, yet it is still loading at system boot05:58
Leo7Mariowait when i tried doing it again something different showed up06:00
Leo7Marioit went to gdm but the computer hung and it repetively played the drum noise.06:01

zambawe want to create a partition with around 40 TB.. which fs do you guys recommend for that?06:19
SuperLagthat's massive06:19
zambaSuperLag: is it really?06:19
SuperLagfor a single partition? I'd certainly say so06:19
gingerlyredneed help getting access to my portable hard drive, just installed ubuntu pm me for help please06:19
SuperLaggingerlyred: plug it in06:20
SuperLagstart with that06:20
gingerlyredalready done, wont recognize is06:20
SuperLaggingerlyred: how are you making the determination it's not recognizing the drive?06:21
zambaSuperLag: you'd create different small partitions amounting to around 40 TB in total?06:21
gingerlyredits not on the file explorer but it is on the disks application06:21
SuperLagzamba: Depends on what I was using the system for. I've never heard of anyone needing a single fs of that size.06:21
SuperLagzamba: of course, that's not to say there is no application for something like that... I just don't know what that'd be :)06:22
nivvHey guys! I'm hosting a private VPS with a vzfs filesystem. The vzfs partiion is full, but the host says they've extended the allowed quota. But I don't know how to allocate the new space06:22
SuperLagzamba: what are you planning on using it for?06:22
SuperLaggingerlyred: does the portable drive have data on it? is it formatted already?06:23
gingerlyredit should have data on it, i havent formatted it since i changed os's06:23
=== rangzen__ is now known as rangzen_
gingerlyredand i only changed os's an hour ago06:23
SuperLaggingerlyred: what's on that drive?06:23
gingerlyredmusic, books, game setup files06:23
SuperLaggingerlyred: right, but was this drive for your OS, or a secondary drive you had stuff put on?06:24
SuperLaggingerlyred: and was this something you'd formatted in Windows?06:24
gingerlyredyea before i put stuff on it06:25
SuperLagdo you remember what type of filesystem you formatted it as? FAT or NTFS?06:25
SuperLaggingerlyred: you comfy with the command line?06:25
gingerlyredthe terminal says the system on the drive is GPT and the id is ee06:26
jonny_ciao a tutti06:26
SuperLaggingerlyred: if not, I suggest you get to that point. It'll only help. :)06:26
SuperLaggingerlyred: if you run dmesg, what drive letter comes up at/near the end?06:26
jonny_ci sono toscane?06:27
SuperLaggingerlyred: something like /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc06:27
SuperLagjonny_: there's probably an Italian channel for you.06:27
gingerlyredits dev/sdb06:27
SuperLaggingerlyred: okay, all one partition, or did you make multiple?06:29
gingerlyredmultiple, made sdb and sdb206:29
=== DigitalDayTrader is now known as SparkMasterTape
gingerlyredfrom what it looks like on disks sdb2 has the 250gbs (not all of that is used)06:30
gingerlyredsorry it made 3 partitions, sdb,sdb1,sbd206:30
SuperLaggingerlyred: try sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt06:30
SuperLaggingerlyred: that's only going to be two parititons06:31
gingerlyredgot: mount: block device /dev/sdb2 is write-protected, mounting read-only06:31
gingerlyredmount: you must specify the filesystem type06:31
SuperLaggingerlyred: sdb is the name of the disk, and sdb1 and sdb2 are partitions on that did06:31
SuperLaggingerlyred: Okay. Try this, then: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb206:32
SuperLagthen if you run just "mount" it'll tell you where it mounted it to... probably something in /media/youruser/......06:32
gingerlyredsays only root can do that06:33

Guest12422wafflejock: what kind of syntax?06:46

Guest12422wafflejock: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12116433/06:48
wafflejockGuest12422: okay yeah not showing the disk so probably something not working in the controller on the hard drive or something, not much hope then, like k1l said you could try checking to see if the hard disk can be seen in the BIOS setup in the boot disk section or otherwise but sounds like it's not communicating06:51
Guest12422okay, i will be right back.06:52
notdanieloutside of lvm, is there a decent way to 'snapshot' my current ubuntu install? other than, say, imaging the whole thing06:55

sogeking99Hey guys, any idea what Cinnamon appletts are programmed in?06:58
Guest12422wait i forgot what to do again06:59
Guest12422i went to BIOS setup, then what07:00
notdanielGuest12422: missed your problem, what's the full issue? can't boot from ubuntu, or your computer can't see the disk at all?07:01
Guest12422my computer can't see the disk at all07:02
notdanielis it a new disk? has it ever seen it? have other machines seen it?07:02
Guest12422i'm trying to restore my files from Hard Disk Error 2F107:02
k1lGuest12422: then see if it lists that hdd somewhere. that depends on your actual mainboard/bios. but its about checking if that hdd is working at all or dead.07:02
Guest12422I mean 3F107:02
k1lGuest12422: because if its dead there is nothing ubuntu can do07:02
notdanielGuest12422: yeah if it's dead, it's hard to tell. pop it into an external dock if you have one, or similar, to make sure it work at all07:02
Guest12422i don't have an external dock, unfortunately. plus it's on a laptop so it's hard to take it out07:03
notdanielmaking sure you have AHCI enabled in your BIOS is always good, but usually that's enabled anyway07:03
Guest12422Well the total memory says its 2 GB which is weird07:04
notdanielso i'm guessing you have more than 2gb then07:04
Guest12422At least before the crash07:05
notdanielcheck for a bios update exists for your machine. install it. reseat the RAM/HD/whatever else07:05
Guest12422Oh wait i'm on boot options now07:05
notdanieland what does it show you07:06
Guest12422CD ROM Boot enabled,Internal Network Adapter Boot Enabled, Network Boot Protocol IPv4 legacy...07:07
Guest12422should that be it?07:07
Guest12422oh ok i'll search for bios update07:09
Guest12422wait you can check the updates in the BIOS settings?07:10
=== n is now known as Guest93620
notdanielGuest12422: no you'll need to boot into something and check your machine's model07:12
notdanielbut honestly i don't think that's the issue07:12
notdanielmake sure AHCI is turned on. you are _sure_ this drive is bootable? do you have like a live ubuntu cd or some such thing to boot the machine from07:13
Guest12422well i have a live ubuntu cd07:14
Guest12422oh so i use ubuntu. OK07:15
notdanielmost of the time i see a drive not show up in the boot menu, it's either 1) the drive just plain isn't plugged in right, 2) the BIOS can't boot from UEFI and the drive has a UEFI install on it (or the exact inverse of that problem)07:15
notdaniel3) AHCI isn't turned on for some bizarre weird-ass reason07:15
notdanielor 4) i have a laptop that honest to god required a couple bios updates before it would boot off certain drives07:15
BotchlaBnotdaniel: USB drives?07:16
notdanielBotchlaB: i'm referring to internal sata drives.07:16
notdanielthis one dell laptop i have refused to boot from anythin UEFI about 70% of the time until a couple updates.07:17
Guest12422so you just update the BIOS?07:18
notdanielGuest12422: i mean, it's hard to tell because this could be any of several problems07:18
Guest12422but it's one of the solutions, right?07:18
notdanieleven though it is time-consuming, the first thing i usually do in this case (once i've made sure AHCI is on, UEFI vs legacy boot is corect, etc.) is pull the damn thing out of the computer and make sure it works07:19
notdaniel(i dropped in here after your original question so i don't know what type of installation is on this drive)07:19
notdanielbut UEFI vs legacy is another thing, depending on how/where you installed the OS on that drive you cant boot07:19
Guest12422oh ok07:20
notdanielthis was a drive that worked until a crash? or this is a new/different drive/install?07:20
Guest12422well if you're asking for more information my laptop kinda jumps out of places before it crashed07:20
Guest12422yeah it worked before it crashed07:20
notdanielso this drive in question booted, and then crashed, and now does not boot?07:20
notdanielok, and have you booted with a live usb to see if ubuntu can see it?07:21
Guest12422Yes, I'm having ubuntu rn07:21
notdanielnot even the file system itself, because that could very well have gotten messed up, but can it see the hardware itself07:21
Guest12422how do you do that?07:22
notdanielif you run 'sudo lshw -class disk -short' from ubuntu, do you see the drive?07:22
k1lGuest12422: again: if the bios doesnt list the hdd that hdd is most probaply broken. so there is nothing ubuntu can do about it.07:23
Guest12422i'm booting with UEFI07:23
notdanielk1l: drives don't always show up in the boot menu unless there is something on it to boot from, especially on UEFI machines07:23
notdanielthe days of the "this disk isn't bootable" error started going away after that switch07:24
notdanielUEFI doesn't bother even listing it as an option on plenty of machines unless there's a bootable uuid on it07:24
k1lnotdaniel: i am not talking about boot menu.  i am talking baout the hardware settings menu07:24
notdanielk1l: oh definitely, but since he wasn't sure about his settings, but is already in a live iso, we should still be able to at least see signs that the thing exists.07:26
notdanielbut yeah, like i've said, my first move here would've been to yank the thing out and put it in a dock somewhere else and check it07:26
Guest12422_Here's what it says: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12116612/07:30
Guest12422It says "500GB", which I think is how much memory it has.07:32
notdanielGuest12422: if your hard drive is a 500gb drive made by HGST, then it looks connected to me :)07:36

navetzhi guys, if I install KDE to ubuntu, will I basically have kubuntu and ubuntu or how does that work?08:39
bazhangnavetz, some duplicate packages08:40
bazhangnavetz, at tleast with kubuntu-desktop08:40
cfhowlettnavetz, ubuntu is the main OS.   kde-plasma-desktop is the gui + apps08:40
bazhangnavetz, you could go for a more minimal thing like the kde core08:40
navetzwhat do you guys suggest?08:43
navetzIf I duplicate packages wont it just kind of be like a souped up version of of each?08:43
ObrienDaveafter installing ubuntu, sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop08:43
nodusnavetz: if your willing to do a bit of work cleaning things up, switching things over by installing kubuntu-desktop is fine08:44
acepro12sadly f6 did not work08:44
ObrienDavethat will get you KDE and the apps08:44
nodusnavetz: but it can definately leave some configs messed up08:44
navetznodus, I can clean it up, what kind of things would I need to do?08:44
navetzah dang, I've been upgrading since like 10.04 I think I need to reinstall08:44
navetzthen try to install kubuntu desktop alongside it08:45
nodusi havent installed kubuntu over a ubuntu install in a long time, so i dont know hoof the top of my head08:45
acepro12guys ?08:45
navetznodes it's cool, if anything goes wrong I can uninstall kubuntu right?08:46
navetzor will the configs still be messed up08:46
acepro12q.q guys08:46
nodusnavetz: the configs may be messed up, i would backup first.08:47
cfhowlettnavetz, suggestion: test before you do all that stuff.  install virtualbox.  install your test OS to virtualbox.08:47
acepro12any ideas on what i can do >08:47

schlerpdisk image writere is standard on ubuntu, i havent used it but its always how i imagined id burn an iso...10:27

daftykinsGuest12422: something must be up with your connection, or that systems general stability. what actually led to this drive being discovered as bad?10:55
schlerpNTQ: if not i can guide you through10:55

gartralhey all, I've run into a snag while looking through an old hdd of mine... I can't run "ecryptfs-mount-private" or moreover, it returns nothing, i'm on ubuntu 15.0410:56
daftykinsGuest12422: you need those programs installed to check it.10:56
Guest12422OK I guess I can start again10:57
albert88nt@daftykins thank you. Are ok the rest of partition wich i`m trying to do?10:57
NTQschlerp: Do I have to bind /dev /proc /run and /sys to the chroot environment?10:57
schlerpNTQ: and you definately dont have a seperate boot partition?10:57
HewloThereHi. I'm simply curious about this, does Ubuntu get sponsored free bandwidth for OS downloads and repo's, etc?10:57
daftykinsalbert88nt: yep, depends on how much software you use for the 25GB / though10:58
NTQschlerp: no. Not on this new ssd10:58
popeyHewloThere: Yes. Canonical pays for datacentre hosting, and there are volunteer mirrors also10:58
schlerpNTQ: yes, and cp /etc/resolv.conf to /mnt/etc/resolv.conf10:58

HewloThereOhh, okay. :)10:58
Guest12422is it possible for me to install it on the desktop and insert the file via flashdisk?10:59
schlerpif the live system has internet, we can apt0get update & upgrade too10:59
NTQschlerp: do you mean withing chroot?10:59
daftykinsGuest12422: you could grab the .deb files yes10:59
Guest12422daftykins OK how do I do that?11:00
schlerpnah from outside chroot, it will copy in your resolve file which will let youre chroot talk to the internet for running apt-get update etc11:00
daftykinsGuest12422: install "pastebinit" and "smartmontools" on your system then grab the .deb packages from /var/cache/apt/archives/11:00
NTQI've already copied resolv.conf to the chroot11:00
schlerpok cool, so do an apt-get update and upgrade11:00
schlerpNTQ: then an update-initramfs -k all11:02
Guest12422daftykins what's the html?11:02
daftykinsGuest12422: what html?11:02
NTQonly linux-libc-dev can be upgraded11:02
daftykinsGuest12422: you're extremely vague.11:02

daftykinsGuest12422: oh. that makes a bit more sense :P11:04
daftykinsGuest12422: so armed with the version of ubuntu that your live session is booting, use http://packages.ubuntu.com/ to find and download the packages11:05
daftykinssounds like that system is just hosed though11:05
daftykinspersonally i'd disconnect the hard disk from it and see if the live session behaves normally11:05

schlerpNTQ: start and stop are line numbers and /file should be /var/log/dmesg11:18
NTQschlerp: in initramfs there is no /var/log/dmesg. But i can pipe dmesg through sed11:19
Guest12422_daftykins: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12117552/11:19

TheEagerPadawanActionParsnip: what if i use a both IPv4 and IPv6 can i just add nameserver <someip6> in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head16:49

daftykinsDasdre: sure you don't have a TV plugged in? :D17:05

OerHekskadiro, never seen your question before, but what do you want with "how adding bis to an encrypted channel" ?17:25
ActionParsnipnrdb: how do you mean remotely?17:25
k1l_mojtaba: is the guest account or another user working correctly?17:26

kadiroOerHeks: thank's for response, i have one encrypted channel ( in my country ) and i would to decrypt it from vdr, i can do that from windows, but i need from ubuntu because i don't use windows just if i should to do17:27
OerHekskadiro, then you have one chance: chrome browser ( with buildin DRM stuff)17:28
nrdbActionParsnip, I have a VPN to a remote computer, I am using this to test the external (i.e. via internet) login.   When I test from the local LAN it works great, but not from the external I.P.17:29
kadiroOerHeks: DRM, what that means?17:29
OerHeks= encrypted17:30
ActionParsnipnrdb: why not port forward TCP/22 to the system running the SSH server? Then you can connect to WAN.IP.goes.here port 2217:30
kadiroOerHeks: from my sattelite card ?17:30
mojtabak1l_: Guess session works fine17:30
ActionParsnipnrdb: did you check routing is pushing the traffic for your LAN down the VPN?17:30
nrdbActionParsnip, that is what I have been trying to get working.  The port forwarding seems to be OK, the packet get the the computer running the sshd.17:31
mojtabak1l_: Do you know what should I do?17:31
ActionParsnipnrdb: does the network you are sat on externally and the one you are VPNing have the same subnet (lots of home networks use
ActionParsnipnrdb: so if you are connecting from a to another network, it won't work17:32
OerHekskadordo only chrome can play *some* DRM channels such as netflix, do some research, ubuntu + your country + that bis channel17:32
k1l_mojtaba: what was the issue again? a bad theme?17:32
ActionParsnipnrdb: if this is the case you will need to change the subnet of your network to be different so that the networks are different17:33
ActionParsnipnrdb: something like is fine too17:33
kadiroOerHeks: you means read from internet?17:33

winsux1gparted tells me i have 12 partitions and some unallocated space. issuing sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=/root/myparttable bs=1K count=1024 copies the first MB on my drive, but i don't know if this will contain the gpt (i don't think there is a mbr)17:50

geniitry running gparted on the image file17:52
winsux1genii: gparted /root/myparttable gives me 'end of file while reading No such file or directory'17:54

winsux1genii: /root/myparttable: x86 boot sector17:55

kadiroI think gparted work only in device and not in files17:57
geniikadiro: If you have a full image file of the drive, gparted and fdisk work fine on them. But looks like not if you just have the MBR or a partial17:58

uberamdBut looking at the sha1 sum in the index file it matches the sha1 of the file itself18:04
uberamd"W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-updates/main/i18n/Translation-en  Hash Sum mismatch"18:04
ioriawinsux1, good luck18:04
TJ-uberamd: Possibly caused because the archive mirror is/was in the process of sync-ing with the master18:05
uberamdTJ-: thought about that possibility however it's been a few hours now with the same results, switched to some differnet mirrors like lug.mtu.edu or de.archive.ubuntu.com and get the same result18:06
postmodernjust updated and now i can't login, even though i had auto-login enabled18:06
TJ-uberamd: Was that after "apt-get update" too?18:06
uberamdTJ-: the apt-get update is what causes it18:06
ioriauberamd, it happened to me... after a couple, it disappeared18:06

geniiuberamd: Delete the cahed lists in /var/lib/apt/lists/ and /var/lib/apt/lists/partial   and then run sudo apt-get update again18:07
TJ-uberamd: No, apt-get reports it, it doesn't cause it. The way to test is to manually fetch the file and check its signature, and the hash. if it matches you know the local cached copy of the index/Package files are the problem.18:07
uberamdTJ-: sha1 of http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-updates/main/i18n/Translation-en matches the sha1 listed here: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-updates/main/i18n/Index18:09

postmodernTJ-, shift does nothing18:23

postmodernTJ-, thanks!18:23
ioriapostmodern, you have to try few times with shift ... or esc18:23
Hudsonkempostmodern try press ESC many times on bootin18:23
kadirojean-guy: I'm not an expert, but i think you can install a driver from software manager if you know yours18:24
TJ-postmodern: which release of Ubuntu is it? If it is using GRUB v2 then the key is "shift' ... and needs to be continuously held down from the time the firmware's POST (power on self test) / splash display is active18:24
HudsonkemTJ v2 works with ESC too18:25
TJ-postmodern: is the keyboard USB, or built-in, or PS/2 style?18:25

postmodernHudsonkem, ah ha, that worked!18:26
Apachezwhat happend to fglrx the other day? ubuntu 15.04 refuse to boot with fglrx installed "running in low-graphics mode"18:26
postmodernTJ-, ok i appended nomodeset to the kernel args, but it still just boots to lightdm and won't login, and the VTs are blank18:27
TJ-postmodern: Now you can prevent the GUI starting... as well as "nomodeset" add "text" to do a VT console-only start18:28

wileeeJayTeeZee, This is not why does linux not? it is support for ubuntu. this is channel spamming20:07
TJ-Dyjoe: Oooo! I may have found a sneaky workaround. It is 100% worth trying. Disconnect any and all external devices (USB. media cards, etc.) disconnect the AC charger. *remove* the battery. Press the power button *for at least 60 seconds* to drain any remaining charge from capacitors. Reconnect the AC charger (*not* the battery), power up and check if the WiFi light is white or not. If so,  power down, reconnect battery, and boot Linux20:07

DyjoeTJ-:The wifi used to turn on automatically when i had just windows (it used to turn on since booting not from when I entered windows), the wifi cards works ( i tried it on my roommate's laptop who has the same model and runs a version of linux ,not sure which 1 . His is orange but then turns it on when he logs in linux)20:18
kadiroJayTeeZee: is a serial wacom device ?20:18
JayTeeZeeit is a wacom digitizer built into a tablet20:19
TJ-Dyjoe: that's disappointing. It does sound as if your PC has a BIOS setting that has disabled it. Maybe that setting is only accessible from Windows.20:19
JayTeeZeeit uses the exact same panel as the surface pro 220:19
TJ-Dyjoe: the PCI ID of that device shows the kernel driver is rt2800pci which has no specific control itself for the radio, so the interface to the radio kill switch must be elsewhere20:21

kadiroWaraqa: ah i understand now20:47
TJ-Goddard: It depends on whether the system is UEFI boot, or Legacy/BIOS boot, and whether the boot drive has a MBR or GPT disk label20:47
Waraqakadiro: In order to save time when opening those images in the next time20:47
Goddardk1l_: im trying to install over the old install20:47

Goddardk1l_: yes windows is installed20:49
Waraqakadiro: thanks, I will try ask in superuser.com20:49
kadironp Waraqa20:49
k1l_Goddard: ok, so ubuntu will install its bootloader (grub). and that will work recognise the windows too20:49
TJ-Dyjoe: as long as the firmware file is on the system, now all we need to do is prove it has been loaded. For that lets unload and reload the RT3290 kernel module. To do that, lets first be sure we know which module is loaded. Do "lpsci -k -d 1814:3290"20:50
Goddardk1l_: where does it install to by default in that situation?20:50
kadirogrub will not erase mbr don't worry Goddard20:50
GoddardI erased the ubuntu partitions and grub is still popping up20:51
TJ-Goddard: On a UEFI boot with an EFI System Partition (ESP) grub will be installed alongside the Windows boot-manager, and will be registered in the system's UEFI boot menu20:51
k1l_Goddard: for bios/legacy devices i would have said MBR of the first disk and /boot/grub in that ubuntu partition20:51

Dyjoe Command 'lspci' from package 'pciutils' (main)20:52

Let's unload it and then reload it, and then look at the kernel log entries it causes to see if it reports loading the firmware file too.

TJ-Dyjoe: I've read on the Crunchbag/Debian forums/wiki that on some HP models the F12 LED *will remain orange* even when the Wifi is enabled, *but* Fn+F12 still toggles it on or off - just that the LED doesn't indicate the current state21:05
TJ-Dyjoe: So, press Fn+F12 only once ... and try that scan again21:06

k1l_downbeam: this is ubuntu support. why dont you use a linux pdf reader?21:07
downbeami have ubuntu21:08
TJ-Dyjoe: that is progress. So pressing Fn+F12 once just disabled the radio. Does "rfkill list" show anything different now?21:09

DyjoeTJ-: it seems the f12 only triggers the soft blocked on and off21:12
TJ-Dyjoe: thanks, so we know what does what.21:12
TJ-Dyjoe: I'm beginning to wonder if there's a deeper issue for your PC, since the experiences of other users with the same RT3290 and HP model I've looked at show they solved it with nothing more than we've tried so far21:13
DyjoeTJ-: I've tested the card on another laptop so it's not that , I'm going to buy a modem tomorrow anyway and use a wired network but what's weird is that again, it turns on by itself for around 5-10 seconds every 10 minutes and so and within those 5-10 seconds it can connect to any network and if I manage to have the time to use a webpage I can even "browse" but besides that it didn't show any other sign of working21:15
TJ-Dyjoe: OK, found an even sneakier workaround. Read and try this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/360589/problems-with-rt3290-card-running-using-rt2800-driver-on-ubuntu-13-0421:15
TJ-Dyjoe: really... has that happened recently? I'm wondering if we can locate log entries in kern.log to give us a clue on that. That sounds like a possible power-save side-effect.21:16
DyjoeTJ-: It happens randomly I can't control it ,  it started happening after I went "berzerk" on the airplane mode on/off button and after that it just randomly happened once in a while ( I keep seeing the wireless disconnected sign every few 10 minutes or so)21:19
TJ-Dyjoe: another possible from-boot-time solution that some people report as working - in the BIOS setup, if possible, put the network boot option before the hard disk so the BIOS *may* fully enable the wifi and ethernet devices.21:20
TJ-Dyjoe: It sounds like you may have stumbled onto a clue as to how to solve this. Do you have some more time to collect some technical logs I can dig into?21:20
DyjoeTJ-: I don't have much time left since my roomate sleeps where the modem is , from the thread should I try the "don't last past the next system boot" version or the versions he has found working for him (from the other thread he mentions)? Also in bios should I reboot with my wired connection off (i've seen some people say it might matter however it showed nochanges when i did it normally)21:23
DyjoeTJ-: the roommate-modem cause is also the reason why i'd like to keep working wireless  on the laptop xd21:24
TJ-Dyjoe: Try the 'suspend' trick listed as steps 1 2 3 421:24
TJ-Dyjoe: OK, well I'm around here quite a lot so come back another time and we can do some more diagnostics. If you're able to trigger it by going berzerk I'm guessing you're not far from figuring out a permanent fix21:25
DyjoeTJ-: I will try the 4 steps then report back with the results21:26
TJ-Dyjoe: good luck ;)21:26

TJ-Dyjoe: does that strike you as a bug? We'd expect Fn+F12 to do a hard switch wouldn't we?21:32

DyjoeTJ-: Nothing, However I don't think the boot changes anything in the wireless in my case (including it's on/off status), because I have made the network the first thing to boot and it took a while whle it loaded the wired card,however when i rebooted with the wired connection removed it didn't stay even a second at the network  it jumped directly at booting normally , it might be that the changes to the booting system were made and saved while in windows22:16
TJ-Dyjoe: I've just found a mainline kernel bug, which includes a patch, which isn't in the mainline kernel, which is supposed to fix this. https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6913122:16
ubottubugzilla.kernel.org bug 69131 in Platform_x86 "hp_wmi cannot hard-unblock wifi on HP nx6325" [High,Assigned]22:17
mate|74463so....I can see that make differents L and l......ok...I got it....what u need to know from the output?22:17
TJ-Dyjoe: As the patch isn't in mainline yet we can't simply test by installing a mainline kernel, but I'm investigating if we can build it using the DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support)22:18
k1l_mate|74463: to see what is the cause of your "i cant connect" issue we need to check the drivers etc. but we need to know what wifi card that is. so please follow that clear and easy instructions i gave you. if you have issues with english ask in #ubuntu-it22:19

k1l_mate|74463: ok, you did not tell so far, that you dont have a connection on that ubuntu pc at all. so can you put a lan cable in it?22:23
k1l_Suntop_: try if a "sudo update-grub" will do22:24
TJ-Dyjoe: I'm working on a small DKMS package here that, if it works, will allow you to build the patched hp-wmi module yourself.22:24
mate|74463if am having problem with wireless....means....that am digit from somewhere else....isn't true?22:25
Suntop_k1l_: thats all?22:25
OerHeksSuntop_, that will change windows 8 to your installed windows 1022:25
Suntop_Okay I will give that a try22:26
k1l_Suntop_: that command runs the scripts that generate the grub boot menu. one script will scan for windows installs.22:26
Suntop_I plan to do a clean install of 10 later, will Ihave to reinstall Ubuntu?22:27
k1l_a clean windows install will most likely wipe the ubuntu boot loader and will need to run a ubuntu live usb/cd to install that again. yes22:28

bekksyingw787: You access the BIOS prior grub is started.22:39
yingw787bekks: yeah but I want it to just boot into ubuntu automatically without having to manually access BIOS in order to boot grub22:40
yingw787bekks: it's not doing that right now22:40
bekksyingw787: So set the boot order you are changing in BIOS persistantly.22:40
scott_11thanks k1l_22:41
yingw787bekks: I tried setting the boot order, but they're not labelled nicely; one is grub and I think the other is some phantom USB disc22:41
bekksyingw787: Which doesnt matter since you have to set the boot order once, persistantly.22:42
TJ-Dyjoe: are you still awake?22:42
TJ-Dyjoe: I have a DKMS module for hp-wmi for you to test. Download it from https://iam.tj/projects/misc/hp-wmi.dkms.tar.gz22:44
scott_11is there a general opinion on the difference between fglrx and fglrx-updates? which should I choose?22:45
ash_mhey, there's no need for something like vagrant if you're running an ubuntu distro from your local machine, is there?22:46
TJ-Dyjoe: assuming you saved it to your $HOME/Downloads/ directory using a web browser, then in a terminal do "sudo tar -C / -xzf $HOME/Downloads/hp-wmi.dkms.tar.gz"    - this should extract the files into the /usrs/src/ directory so you can attempt to build it22:46
ash_mmeaning I should just install webservers, languages, etc, directly to my workstation... or is it better to isolate this in a vagrant environment?22:46
TJ-ash_m: for 'cleanliness' you might want to isolate those tools in chroot's or using containers (LXC/Docker)22:47
DyjoeTJ-: I have done just that, I haven't received a return message for it so I'm imagining it worked? Should I reboot now?22:48

mate|74463on windows....is everything working as usual...23:06
TJ-Dyjoe: I've also just found a very strong hint that a kernel command-line boot option for ACPI could fix this. I came on that since the syslog you provided a few minutes ago shows unknown key codes, and that is related to the Fn-F12 sequence from what I can make out. The fix involves adding "  acpi_osi="!Windows 2012"   "23:07
mate|74463on Ubuntu....does not reach any network around me.....looks like switched off...but I don't know hot to let it work...even from the bios menu...23:07
k1l_mate|74463: is there no chance you can put a lan cable into that laptop?23:08
TJ-Dyjoe: OK... I need to change the source code in hp-wmi.c to an older version for it to work... whilst I do that, why not try rebooting, intercept the GRUB boot manager by holdind down the Shift key, and in the menu navigate to the Ubuntu entry, press E to edit it, navigate to the line "linux ..." and at the end add acpi_osi="!Windows 2012"   then press F10 or Ctrl+X to execute that23:09
mate|74463may it will solve all....may the system need a several update....I know23:09

TJ-Dyjoe: OK, so we've made some change but not quite the correct one. There are several options for ACPI and its per-BIOS-image, but I suspect that might be the actual *correct* fix so I wonder if you can upload the ACPI DSDT binary table somewhere for me so I can disassemble it. "sudo sh -c 'cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT | gzip > /tmp/DSDT.bin'  "23:24

xfceKrisAlso, I've looked at all the tutorials I care to look at, so please no tutorials. I haven't got a windows disk either, only a linux usb.23:44
TJ-Dyjoe: OK, nothing will change until we unload the current module from memory and load the new module. First lets check the new module is installed. Do "modinfo hp-wmi" and check the first line of the output, the filename. It must have in it updates/dkms/hp-wmi.ko23:47
DyjoeTJ-:yes it is in there23:48
TJ-Dyjoe: OK ... I suspect because of the Fn-F12 not currently working due to the acpi_osi setting, it won't help right now without a reboot. Let's try it anyhow. "sudo modprobe -r hp-wmi" then "sudo modprobe hp-wmi" then try the key sequence see if it affects "rfkill list"23:49

TJ-Dyjoe: A little bit of background about the ACPI DSDT table. It is actually a form of executable code the firmware specifies, but the OS kernel interprets. One function configures the PC with various settings based on the operating system name (OSI). I've disssembled your DSDT and this fragment shows that code. You can see how it stores different config values depending on the name of the OS it receives.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/12121288/23:51
TJ-Dyjoe: Turns out OSI "!Windows 2012" isn't the correct setting for your PC, but it is possible "Windows 2012" is (without the "!").23:52
