drkjtrxfceKris: I've done some of the same myself. Sounds like grub, loaded into the windows drive, while the other items that linux needs to boot went to your boot partition. I know you said that you don't have a Windows disk, have you tried Hiren's Boot Disk?00:01

=== Guest84746 is now known as Aaron_111
ubskeurrredd4, ok, that's your question, Is macbuntu good?03:43
lotuspsychje!systemd | aryan_03:43
ubottuaryan_: systemd is the default init system for Ubuntu 15.04 onwards. For information on transitioning from upstart to systemd, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemdForUpstartUsers03:43
lotuspsychjearyan_: you can install systemd on trusty, but need to tune stuff03:44
aryan_lotuspsychje, what tunes should I perform sir ?03:44
lotuspsychjearyan_: well i would not very reccomend to do it03:46
rredd4ubskeur yes.  Installed another mac like linux flavor and had problems. Like when I close my laptop lid, it would not wake up.  Also, it would see my wifi router but not connect.  So does macbuntu have issues or not that are similar03:46
lotuspsychjearyan_: whats your purpose to do it?03:46
ablest1980The upgrade needs a total of 81.8 M free space on disk '/boot'. Please free at least an additional 17.1 M of disk space on '/boot'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'03:46

moroniclibberHey guys.  I just have a question regarding mir.  Do you think it'll be an issue for certain applications?  My concern is that applications will be ported over to wayland but won't for mir03:54
TechMongernothing. i just want to test it before i install a os on it03:54
lotuspsychje!mir | moroniclibber03:54
ubottumoroniclibber: Mir is the next-generation display server currently under development by Canonical and Ubuntu. It's slated for inclusion in Ubuntu 14.04. For more information on it, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mir/Spec . For code, see https://launchpad.net/mir03:54

TechMongerwhat would be the best version of ub to run on a usb drive?03:55
lotuspsychjeTechMonger: check the sandisk website for firmware updates, this will be most important part before installing an Os03:55
lotuspsychjeTechMonger: your choice really, LTS for more stable03:56
lotuspsychje!lts | TechMonger03:56
ubottuTechMonger: LTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)03:56

ablest1980how do iget the latest flash and java?04:05
lotuspsychje!java | ablest198004:05
ubottuablest1980: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.04:05
lotuspsychjeablest1980: flash is pretty dead, use html5 instead04:05

allstarsnorksdpkg -i05:56
cfhowlettallstarsnorks, that's why. dpkg doesn't address dependencies.  install via USC05:57
allstarsnorksThe program comes in a .deb, but when I install the .deb I'm seeing dependency unsatisfiable messages05:57
cfhowlettallstarsnorks, sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade             THEN try your dpkg -i.  if it still fails, you need to manually add the missing pieces.  fwiw: dpkg is not the preferred method for installs precisely due to no-dependency support.06:02
allstarsnorksno worrie. Got it fixed.06:03

Dashellyeah i should have just stuck with that06:41
Dashellthis happened before where i waited to long to upgrade but I knew it hit end of life... so I thought this time around I'd just upgrade whenever it told me, but I didn't have time until now, I didn't realize i had such a short amount of time06:41
lotuspsychjeubskeur: hmm that doesnt sound good, what about a shell, can you still access that?06:41
SpaceBebopubskeur: well, you have a couple of options, you can remove the fglrx driver from the command line, if you cannot get a terminal you can always ctl+alt+f1, if you have manually edidted the Xorg.conf file I would reccomend removing it.06:42

minas114Hi. I just installed ubuntu on a laptop but it could not boot after installing. to fix it, I went into bios and changed boot mode from "efi" to "csm" (something like that). I don't understand exactly what this means and why it was required. Any ideas06:42
=== IdleOne- is now known as IdleOne
SpaceBebopubskeur: try booting into single user mode06:42
lotuspsychjeminas114: did you disable fastboot and secureboot from bios?06:43
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode06:43
ubskeurSpaceBebop, I think I got it from recovery shell06:43
Dashellwhere is sources.list?06:43
lotuspsychje!sources | Dashell06:43
ubottuDashell: The packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories.06:43
ubskeurlotuspsychje, I ran apt-get remove fglrx from root shell06:43
minas114lotuspsychje, secureboot was already disabled06:43
SpaceBebopDashell: etc/apt/?06:43
lotuspsychjeminas114: fastboot disabled also?06:43
ubskeurlotuspsychje, worked06:43
ubottuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome), !Muon (KDE) or !Apper (KDE)06:43

lotuspsychjeubskeur: im gonna be stuffed soon lol06:44
minas114lotuspsychje, no, fast boot is disabled06:44
minas114lotuspsychje, it's set to "normal"06:44
lotuspsychjeminas114: must be disabled to install ubuntu single06:45
lotuspsychje!uefi | minas11406:45
ubottuminas114: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI06:45
minas114lotuspsychje, ok, it is. what about secure boot?06:45
lotuspsychjeminas114: also must be disabled06:46
lotuspsychjeminas114: after that hit F12 to load up your ubuntu usb stick06:46
Kartagisis it possible to make apt-get install to ~/bin/ rather than /usr/bin/06:47
ubskeurSpaceBebop, my video card isn't on the list of video cards at that link06:47
SpaceBebopKartagis: generally no06:47
lotuspsychjeKartagis: whats your purpose to do this exactly?06:49
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto06:50
SpaceBebopWell, is it a newer or older card06:50
ubskeurSpaceBebop, newer probably06:50
lotuspsychjeubskeur: maybe try the fix broken packages, after you removed fglrx06:51
SpaceBebopThe past of ATI has been left to ruin and they hav decided to cut their losses and move on new, better and improved driver designs not hindered by their past06:51
Kartagislotuspsychje: I've got some scripts that utilise certain binaries. if they are in ~/bin/, I will then push all my scripts along with the binaries to my repo06:51
minas114lotuspsychje, with UEFI mode, ubuntu won't boot. It needs to be in CSM mode. Also, I can't boot from USB (but before installing it I could), as I get "Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)"06:51
SpaceBebopThe cost of this course of action is less then superb video support for older hardware06:51
Kartagislotuspsychje: I could later move them, but hey06:51
ubskeurlotuspsychje, it boots now06:51
lotuspsychje!yay | ubskeur06:52

ubskeurlotuspsychje, http://paste.ubuntu.com/12122635/06:54
lotuspsychjeubskeur: not good, try your additional drivers section now06:54
lotuspsychjeubskeur: should say driver=radeon06:55
Dashelli guess 14.10 isn't in old releases06:56
gartralSpaceBebop: yea, hench why I prefer nvidia06:56
lotuspsychjeminas114: not sure what you did exactly mate, read that uefi page06:56
lotuspsychjeDashell: ?06:56
ubskeurlotuspsychje, the option that is selected for the amd/ati device is X.Org X server (xserver-xorg-video-ati)06:56
minas114lotuspsychje, I formatted the disk by my self :/06:56
ubskeurDashell, 14.10 is no longer supported06:56
Dashelli know that's why i was looking at here:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades#SpecificOlder06:56
lotuspsychjeubskeur: does it show active06:57
Dashellthat's what someone told me to do when i asked if it's possible to upgrade from where i was at still06:57
Dashellthere's always someone named someone in here XD06:57
ubskeurlotuspsychje, how do you mean?06:57

ubskeurlotuspsychje, ok, I'll see how it goes07:01
lotuspsychjeubskeur: you might wanna check your syslog and dmesg for driver issues too07:01
lotuspsychjeminas114: if you change uefi stuff, you gonna need ubuntu reinstall07:03
ubskeurlotuspsychje, btw, I ended up turning off uefi in my bios settings and installing without uefi07:03
lotuspsychjeubskeur: single or still dualboot?07:04
ubskeurlotuspsychje, dualboot07:04
lotuspsychjeubskeur: cool!07:04
ubskeurlotuspsychje, but the windows 7 partition wasn't using/didn't need uefi (I checked, it still boots)07:04
lotuspsychjeubskeur: you used the existing ubuntu partition to reinstall then07:04
minas114lotuspsychje, well, this pc had windows on it. I formatted it and created the partitions myself. I made one EFI partition, one for /, one for /home and one for swap. But in /boot I have a folder "efi" and not "uefi", like the web page you sent me suggests.07:04
ubskeurlotuspsychje, no, I removed old partitions and put new ones on in their place07:05
lotuspsychjeubskeur: great07:05
Dashelli'm guessing the answer is no, but it's not at all possible to somehow switch to Mint without having to reinstall everything is there?07:05
ubskeurminas114, efi is basically the same as uefi I think07:05
lotuspsychjeminas114: yeah, but if you cant boot there's something wrong about it right07:06
minas114lotuspsychje, problem is I can't boot from USB now07:06
ubskeurDashell, no, and if it is possible, it's not worth the effort07:06
lotuspsychjeDashell: why do you make it so hard on yourself, just clean install07:06
minas114lotuspsychje, (to reformat it)07:06
lotuspsychjeDashell: clean install takes 30min of your life07:06
Dashellwell the last time i clean installed, i accidentally deleted windows07:06

ubskeuralright, I'm going to enjoy what's left of my day07:13

zetheroobadbodh: I was going into  Browse Network > Windows Network > DOMAIN >08:05
zetheroobadbodh: but whenever I tried double-clicking on DOMAIN it would error out08:06
badbodhzetheroo, for that you need to edit samba config in your windows machine. linux has nothing to do with that part.08:06
badbodhfirewall, faulty config, there could be several reasons.08:06
zetheroo badbodh: right, been editing smb.conf ... but what to edit precisely !?08:07
tvenbazhang, So got any idea on my issue?08:07
badbodhdunno man, you gotta ask samba folks, read samba documentation, do some websearch zetheroo08:07
zetheroobadbodh:  yeah, been doing all of the above08:08
zetheroobadbodh:  when I ask the samba guys they say they don't know about Nautilus08:08
badbodhsmb.conf of linux won;t make any difference here, windows machine is running the server afterall08:08
badbodhdoesn't depend on nautilus either. samba runs in the background.08:09
zetheroobadbodh: seems to all work from the samba side of things - can access the shares - just cannot get past double-clicking the DOMAIN in Nautilus08:09
zetheroook, I'll go back in there and ask them again ;)08:09
bazhangtven, start a new VM <tven> I had a really weird problem, I unpacked a video file from a rare. Suddenly my hard drive space for VM was ziltch,08:09
badbodhzetheroo, is there a router in between your ubuntu and windows machine ?08:09
zetheroobadbodh:  not sure what you mean ... both are in the same network08:10
tvenbazhang, I thought the VM comment was for someone else. So please explain than.08:10
bazhangtven you asked about the vm, start a new one, and recreate the issue08:11
tvenbazhang, I never said anything about VM other than to ask about your VM referring reply.08:11
badbodhzetheroo, ok get this. step 1 : windows machine runs the samba server. make sure all configs and services in that machine is -ok- step 2. unless you have direct lan-cord to lan-port connection between two machines, there is always a router/gateway server that runs the "network", make sure that allows samba connections/ports and step 3. install smbclient on your ubuntu machine and connect to smb:// in nautilus.08:12
tvenOK, try this again, I unpacked a .rar with a video. Between unpacking and playing the video, suddenly 10's of GB of free hard drive space has been sucked away, and continued to be sucked away after the fact, even with restarts. I was not using VM08:13
bazhangtven try again means try the actual procedure again not repost the exact same problem to this channel again08:14
badbodhzetheroo, this channel members will be able to deal with step 3. for 1 and 2 consult respective resources. windows, samba and networking channels08:14
zetheroobadbodh:  some network info: Windows Server 2012 DC/AD + FreeNAS with samba shares authenticated against Windows server 2012 DC/AD + 50 - 60 PC's08:15
badbodhzetheroo, if you have enabled ufw firewall in ubuntu, make sure you allow samba ports in it.08:15
tvenbazhang, you mean downloading, unpacking, and playing the video again? And if suddenly free space starts disappearing all over again, that tells me what? I don't see that bringing me any closer08:15
zetherooSamba shares are working correctly throughout network on Linux (Ubuntu), Windows and MacOS08:16
zetheroobadbodh: ^08:16
badbodhthe did you try connect to smb:// ?08:16
zetheroobadbodh:  if there was a firewall blocking samba ports on the Ubuntu machine wouldn't that stop it working even with manually entering the location in the Nautilus address field!?08:17
tvenbazhang, I don't understand you, and what does VM have to do with anything regarding my issue?08:17
zetheroobadbodh: yes, by manually connecting/entering address location it connects08:17
badbodhnope, ufw only blocks incoming, not outgoing by default08:17
bazhangtven, what sort of vm, what version of ubuntu, how many gigs were alloted to the vm in question, on which partition are these scores and scores gb's disappearing mysteriously from, or from the vm itself; clarify all of those issues first08:18
tvenbazhang What VM?!?08:18
bazhangtven you repeatedly refer to VM08:18
badbodhzetheroo, "just cannot get past double-clicking the DOMAIN in Nautilus" <- check ufw settings. allow all samba tcp and udp ports.08:18
tvenbazhang, repeatedly asked what VM! YOU are the one that brought up VM first!08:19
zetheroobadbodh: I though by default ufw was disabled altogether...08:19
bazhang<tven> I had a really weird problem, I unpacked a video file from a rare. Suddenly my hard drive space for VM was ziltch, I deleted a bunch of files, it quickly became ziltch again, after each file is deleted08:20
badbodhzetheroo, 'sudo ufw status' and check08:20
bazhangyour original post tven ^^08:20
bazhangI had not commented yet at that point tven08:20
zetheroobadbodh: Status: inactive08:20
tvenbazhang, I meant virtual memory, virtual ram, as in hard drive cache08:21
badbodhzetheroo, you mentioned both machines are on same network, is that network handled by any router/gateway server ?08:21
bazhangtven you should have said swap, no one says VM unless referring to virtual machines08:21
tvenbazhang, sorry, I didn't make the connection between my abbreviation and your virtual machine comment08:21
badbodhor are both the machines directly connected by lan chord ?08:21
zetheroobadbodh: Windows Server 2012 DC/AD and hardware firewall and switches ...08:22
tvenbazhang, anyway, I also specified no virtual machine involved before when I was re-clarifying what happened.08:22
zetheroobadbodh: again, firewall is not blocking samba as 50 users use them every day08:22
badbodhyep. check that machine. something's gotta be there. don;t bother though, if you can access your windows share.08:23
JustSighDudesHey guys, where can I find out what each of repositories is exactly? i.e If I turn on automatic security updates, does that update packages that are also updated?08:23
bazhangno idea tven, ask the channel every ten to fifteen minutes, good luck08:23
JustSighDudesthat are also outdated*08:23
tvenCan someone name a linux program that allows me to view hard drive space taken up, graphically?08:24
badbodhbazhang, tven what's the story here so far? just joined in08:24
bazhangbadbodh, cannot reliably say, the story varies08:25
DJonestven: Disk Usage Analyser https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Baobab08:25
badbodhJustSighDudes, rephrase your question please. one issue at a time.08:26
tvenbadbodh,  I upacked a video file from .rar and ran it, suddenly all my spare HDD space on the drive assigned for swap vanished. I deleted multiple files, some were many GB big, like a old ubuntu ISO.08:26
tvenbadbodh, every time I deleted a file, the space created by its deletion would quickly vanish08:26
JustSighDudesbadbodh, If I enabled security updates, does that also apply to outdated packages? E.g if I had postgres 9.3, and then 9.4 is released in the repository. Do I still get security updated for 9.3?08:27
badbodhtven, your swap overflowing means whatever video you opened in your video player, was corrupt and resulted in memory leak. RAM got full, and swap got full after that.08:27
badbodhJustSighDudes, nope. 9.3 will be updated to 9.4.08:27
tvenbadbodh, I restarted my computer, I ran a disk clean, it freed up about 5.7gb, which is less than the amount of files I deleted, and now my free space says a even 4gb08:27
JustSighDudesbadbodh, that's even if only security updates are enabled?08:27
badbodhunless ubuntu allows to run both side by side, like emacs 23 and 24, in which case both will get security updates. JustSighDudes08:28
JustSighDudesbadbodh, thanks08:28
erkan^I saw that Firefox 40.0 is on Ubuutnu 15.04, while Firefox has 40.2 release. is 40.0 good?08:28
tvenbadbodh, a memory leak can continue even after a system restart?08:28
badbodhjust check 'dependencies' section, if 9.3 and 8.4 'breaks' or 'conflicts', only one can be present. and 9.3 will be updated to 9.408:29
badbodhJustSighDudes, ^08:29
badbodhtven, after restart swap should be erased.08:30
tvenbadbodh, but the space did not come back, and even more space kept vanishing after further deletion, AFTER system restart.08:31
badbodhtven, that's for your swap filling up. as for your hdd filling up, looks like somebody forkbombed you. never download .rar files containing vidoes. they never contain videos.08:31
badbodherkan^, firefox will eventually be updated to 40.2 , give it some time.08:33

badbodhtven, i don;t see a swap. is yours "install within windows" or independent install on hdd ?08:40
tvenbadbodh, direct installed on HDD, no windows08:41
badbodhtven, i don;t see a swap partition.08:41
tvenbadbodh, It might be using /home for swap, I dont remember what I installed it as.08:42
badbodhhow did you know swap is full ?08:42
badbodhcan't use home as your swap dummy, home filesystem is ext4, swap filesystem is just 'swap'08:42

badbodhtven, have you installed 'bleachbit' app ?08:45
badbodhadmin0, use postimage.org or uploadpie.com for pics08:46
tvenbadbodh, Yeah, I ran it, it cleared out 5.7gb space, which was less than what was eaten up, but even that space suddenly became only 4gb.08:46
admin0waiting for the reboot08:46
badbodhtven, when you run it, make sure you deselect "wipe free space" option. that's what creates this problem.08:47
tvenbadbodh, I did. So that bomb you mentioned, can it survive restarts?08:47
badbodhtven, as for now sit tight and let bleachbit run completely. if you interrupted it midwy, lord help thee soul.08:47
badbodh*thy soul.08:47
badbodhtven, you were not bombed. forkbombs eat ram and cpu, not hdd. unless you modify it to write text files too.08:48
tvenbadbodh, I did. It ran completely, except for some system stuff it lacked access. It freed up 5.7gb, much less than that which was eaten, which further dropped down to 4gb08:49
badbodhtven, to put it straight. 1. you played a video that was possibly corrupt, ate up ram and swap 2. you panicked and run bleachbit, with 'wipe-free-space' on which ate up more space.08:49
tvenbadbodh, This was after restart, this thing seemed to survive two restarts08:49
admin0badbodh, it says here: http://s18.postimg.org/zbszou1nd/Screen_Shot_2015_08_19_at_10_49_22_AM.png08:50

admin0let me paste my kickstart file and pxe kernel file08:50
badbodhdoes anybody know how to remove bleachbit's 'wipe free space' junk from home directory ?08:51
tvenbadbodh, It's not the cause of my /home partition being continuously sucked up like a cosmic vacuum, even after a restart, is my point, since all this happened before running it.08:52
badbodhtven, stop panicking. repeating the same story again and again won;t change the fact you ran bleachbit without understanding what it does.08:52

tvenbadbodh, I am not panicking, I am just saying I still don't know the cause. And bleach bit gave me more free space than before I ran it, before than I had zero.08:54
tvenbadbodh, I tell you, that is wrong! you misunderstand me!08:55

tvenbadbodh, It didn't tell me anything unusual08:58
badbodhtven, it doesn;t tell you anything. you need to check each folder and file size yourself. see what's occupying more space than it should.08:59
badbodhanalyzer only show you pretty pie-chart and some other details.08:59
tvenbadbodh, I dont see anything in the folders that have significant space as shown here, having anything unusual.09:00
eclectichedgehogncdu is a good tool to see what occupying space09:00
badbodheclectichedgehog, some folks run bleachbit with 'wipe free space', and reboot in panic when they see 'low disk space' notification. and do permanent damage. do you know which folder(s) he should be removing to regain space ?09:01
badbodhi believe tven here has similar issue.09:01

aton_akwxi_dave: yes i guessed that, but how can i install it? the button "force version" is disabled in synaptic09:54
k1lfixcolorprofile: gnome-color-manager09:54
k1laton_: what tutorial is it?09:54
aton_android sdk installation09:54
fixcolorprofilekll  i have it installed but none of those color profile can be tweaked.09:56
aton_i could probably install it using the commandline, but i wonder how to install that :i386 in synaptic09:56
k1laton_: sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev:i38609:56
bajaeclectichedgehog : to make the network manager appear as icon in the notification area09:56
eclectichedgehogbaja it should be there by default09:57
eclectichedgehogbaja did you alter a file /etc/network/interfaces?09:57

BernzelIf I need to install some packages for steam, example "sudo apt-get install '^libc6.*'" does this need to be executed in steams install location? Or can I execute this from home in terminal?09:57

bajanope i messed with the notification icons and i lost some of the icons09:58
eclectichedgehogah ok09:58
aton_k1l: as i said, i want to use synaptic. i found it now, "architecture" button and select arch: i386.09:58
bajai can only see them when i go to properties. Including skype and others09:58
mcphailBernzel: how have you installed steam? All the dependencies should already be satisfied and steam brings it own runtime for games09:59
eclectichedgehogif you mess with /etc/network/interfaces file that can stop network manager from working09:59
fixcolorprofilebaja simple solution is to uninstall and reinstalling unity.09:59
Bernzelmcphail , from software center as recommended09:59
ircnode0Just now I created 1500 process to run background, then my machine freezed for 10 minutes. Somebody know what happened actually happened? I ran convert command in backgrounds with different data. I converted eps-files to png-files.~09:59
k1lbaja: so best would be to clear that mess instead of making more mess.09:59
aton_it says it will uninstall xorg and lots of other packages. why?09:59
mcphailBernzel: then you shouldn't have to install anything else09:59
bajahow k1l09:59
k1lbaja: but that would have been a good info at the start. not the lies about "i love the terminal"09:59
Bernzelmcphail , then I have no clue what's wrong10:00
ircnode0after 10 minutes wait I pressed power button to reboot.10:00
eclectichedgehogkil lol i love the terminal10:00
bajai had no option10:00
mcphailBernzel: is it a problem launching steam itself or launching a steam game?10:00
k1laton_: that is why "but i want synaptic" is a bad choice for supporters.10:00
Bernzelmcphail , launching causes terminal to give me this "Steam needs to install additional packages: libgl1-mesa-dri:i386, libgl1-mesa-glx:i386"10:00

bajak1l how do i recover my  network notifications10:02
eclectichedgehogBernzel, i think the way is to uninstall current graphics drivers and reinstall steam and let it do the graphics10:02
k1lfixcolorprofile: this is support only. chat goes into #ubuntu-offtopic channel :)10:02
fixcolorprofilebaja: install gentoo10:02

eclectichedgehogBernzel, okay10:03
BernzelAnd I tried running "sudo apt-get install libc6-i386" without success10:04
mcphailBernzel: just install the packages steam asked for and your drivers should be fine10:04
Bernzelmcphail , I tried. It doesn't make any difference, it's like steam can't find the packages10:04
mcphailBernzel: paste the exact error and the exact command you tried to use to rectify it to a pastebin service10:05
eclectichedgehogBernzel, is multiarch support installed for i386 detection?10:06

Bernzel_if its enabled or not Im not sure. But I've done "sudo apt-get update" many times now10:45

Aceavanger1Sup, whats everyone up to?11:13
TJ-medicijnman: First thing... ensure the USB cable is firmly connected; try it in different ports; try a different cable; try it on another PC.  Secondly, the USB<>SATA interfaces in some of these external caddies can literally fry themselves dead. I've seen and had several die over the years.11:14

bajak1l: nothing happened :(11:16
medicijnmanTJ-: i tried connecting to another machine but then it does not even spin up the drive. the drive firmware is, according to multiple threads i read, designed that the drive only spins up when it is connect with both an ac adapter and a usb cable into a pc. unfortunately it only seems to work 'decent' on mac os x 10.6.8 but i want to use this drive for linux only11:16

AppAraathello, I am interested in running the latest git master of the KDE PPA to test out Kwin (this one specifically - https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ci/+archive/ubuntu/unstable-daily). Would you recommend to do this on 15.04 or 15.10 ?11:31
medicijnmanTJ-: i'm going to consider to open the drive and look if i can plug this into a desktop computer if this drive keeps refusing to mount, but first i would like to be sure there is no way to reliably mount the drive because i don't want to fiddle around in this ehdd11:32
cfhowlettAppAraat, 15.10?  beta11:32
TJ-medicijnman: Do you have any electronics diagnostic equipment, or know someone who does? My first step would be to verify the power adapter is putting out the correct voltage and can provide the current the device requires. Next, I'd ensure that the power socket on the device hasn't had its joints fractured or gone dry-joint (I often reflow fresh solder on) because physical insert/remove stresses can break them over time.11:32
AppAraatcfhowlett: yeah it's mostly for experimentation purposes. As I understand it, git master of KDE isn't all too stable as well.11:33
OerHeksmedicijnman, is this machine connected to usb2? try to find an USB2 port11:33
TJ-medicijnman: If you have another power adapter that outputs the same voltage and at least as much current, and has the same plug, you could try swapping them11:33
cfhowlettAppAraat, so an unstable on top of an unreleased beta will tell you ... what?11:33
OerHeks*connected to USB3 *11:33
TJ-medicijnman: The fact it fails on different PCs tells us its a problem with the device, and the most obvious is lack of power11:34
medicijnmanTJ-: i lack knowledge to back my intuition, but i think it is solely a software problem. up till yesterday it mounted automagically. the leds light up and the drive spins up when i connect it so there is at least power flowing into the device.11:34
TJ-medicijnman: I doubt the disk drive itself is bad; if that were so the USB interface and the internal SATA controller wouls show up in Linux. The fact they don't tells us its either a power issue, or a USB connection issue11:35
AppAraatcfhowlett: I'm not too sure. I want the PPA packages to be most compatible with the distro packages, also to avoid breakages in that way and if possible contribute bugreports. Are you saying that using the beta is a bad idea in that regard?11:35
TJ-medicijnman: If the device no longer shows up when connected, then the USB interface of the device isn't working for some reasons11:36
TJ-medicijnman: most common cause is physical stress on the connectors11:36
=== Blaster is now known as Guest61721
TJ-medicijnman: if you have a desktop PC, take the SATA drive out of the G3 enclosure and connect it directly into the PC and I'd bet it works fine11:37
AppAraatnot too sure if this is in any way related, but there appear to be USB drives which can only be formatted as specific filesystems.11:37
cfhowlettAppAraat, I would think a released, fully supported OS would be more informative and useful for your stated purpose.  Others may disagree...11:37
medicijnmanTJ-: then i suspect it is the usb interface that is failing, but don't know for sure11:37
AEL-HCould someone tell me why on some users when I SSH in I can type and press tab to autocomplete, however on other users I cannot?11:38

ioriamedicijnman, dmesg | tail should tell you something11:38
bajaim sorry guys trully i am11:38
medicijnmanioria: i can't seem to find anything regarding usb messages except for my external mouse11:39
AppAraatcfhowlett: that makes sense. I'll download 15.04 then.11:39
cfhowlettbaja, go forth and !root/sin no more.11:39
TJ-ioria: the USB isn't showing up, that's the problem11:39
ioriamedicijnman, unplug replug and check11:39
medicijnmanTJ-: looking at the disassembly video i need to remove the a IC in order to plug it into a (s)ata controller11:39
cfhowlettAppAraat, best of luck to you!  thanks for the KDE support.11:39
medicijnmanioria: okay, i'll try11:39
ioriamedicijnman, the leds on it are working ?11:40
ubottugianny: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».11:40
TJ-medicijnman: Not at all, the SATA drive inside the enclosure will be connected with a standard SATA connector (power+SATA)11:40
medicijnmanioria: wow, ok. after about 20 attempts to replug the drive it now does mount11:40
TJ-medicijnman: That tells us you've got a physical connector issue then11:40
ioriamedicijnman, you could try a double usb cable11:41
medicijnmanioria: it is connected with usb3.0 rather than usb2.0. usb2 is the only one that worked for me until now11:41
TJ-medicijnman: Does the device disappear if you wiggle the enclosure end of the USB cable?11:42
AppAraatcfhowlett: and thanks for your recommendation. I'm mainly planning on using Kwin as a standalone WM and optionally have its tiling support (main function I'm interested in are the Scale and Expo functionality of Cinnamon). Furthermore I'll use Krunner and I'm still thinking on which systray I'll choose, but I think it's going to be one of KDE ones.11:42
medicijnmanTJ-: hmmm that is quite troublesome. i better should backup my data to another drive and see if i works with (s)ata.11:42
DyjoeTJ-: Are you still here ?11:42
TJ-medicijnman: if not, I'd try reconnecting to the PC's USB2 port and wiggling the PC end around gently and seeing if that causes it to show up. Somewhere you've got a bad physical connection11:43
ioriamedicijnman, i have no usb3 ports .... my issue ,once, was that the thing wanted a double usb cable11:43
cfhowlettAppAraat, might want to check in with #kubuntu and the kubuntu forums.  Could be you can contribute or glean insight from previous works.  also #kde  is a thing.11:43
medicijnmanTJ-: usb flash drives always mount correctly on my machine, but doesn't that rule out the physical connector problem?11:43
medicijnmanTJ-: the same goes for other ehdds on both my machines11:44
vasgoradhello everyone11:44
TJ-medicijnman: If the wiggling doesn't change anything, then suspect the power... USB3 can provide more amps per port... so if the external power adapter is failing the USB3 might just supply the missing current the USB2 cannot11:44
medicijnmanTJ-: that is, only this drive has mounting problems.11:44
TJ-medicijnman: It ought to yes. This kind of issue requires elimination of possibilities until only one remains11:44
TJ-medicijnman: the fact it has the same problem on another PC strongly suggests its the G3/cable/power that is the problem11:45
vasgoradhello, is normal to have problems with autentication in thunderbirdo, Xubuntu?11:45
medicijnmanTJ-: i disconnected the drive and plugged it into usb2 again and now it also mounts correctly11:46
TJ-medicijnman: I have found reports online that the G3's USB2 data port does break away from the PCB11:46
MonkeyDustvasgorad  login problems are never normal11:47
ioriamedicijnman, dos it works , now ?11:47
medicijnmanTJ-: sorry i don't understand exactly what you're trying to say11:47
MonkeyDustproblem != normal11:47
cfhowlettvasgorad, nope.  double check your credentials11:47
TJ-medicijnman: If the issue is physical, then random changes in behaviour are to be expected, the device will come and go depending no how the connectors are moved/pressured.11:47
vasgoradI tried and tried11:47
medicijnmanioria: it works as in mounting the drive, but this is too unreliable for me. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't11:47
vasgoradI am tried *11:48
ioriamedicijnman, sorry to hear that11:48
cfhowlettvasgorad, login to your accounts via browser.  copy those settings to your tbird accounts.11:48
TJ-medicijnman: Trying to say? - I've said it. 80% certainty there's a physical break in the G3 connectors that is causing intermittent behaviour11:48
TJ-medicijnman: if you continue using it in this state it is liable to disconnect during vital data transfers, and cause corruption.11:49
alu_someone use drupal?11:49
medicijnmanTJ-: sorry i thought i misunderstood something11:49
Synt4x`my software center wont open all of a sudden and none of my apt-get stuff will work, any ideas?11:49

luc4Hello! How do I choose the device for bootloader installation when installing Ubuntu in dual boot with windows 8 in efi mode?11:50
cfhowlettalu_, #drupal11:50
ioriamedicijnman, consider also another 3.5 case maybe11:50
TJ-medicijnman: If it were me I'd not access the drive until it is fixed... what happens if it is transferring data and the connector fails in the midst?11:50
medicijnmanTJ-: mounting the drive as readonly and copying data should be harmless for the destination drive right?11:51

MattiasI got ubuntu 15 on a new VPS with a very basic installation, running service *** restart or anything with the service command gives me no messages, but services does start/stop/restart etc. Which package am I missing to show these messages?12:15
OerHeksMattias, i guess this is normal, no message, no OK.12:16
DyjoeTJ-: Nope,it's the same thing I've even done rfkill list . Maybe I haven't inserted it correctly? I've pressed e went to the linux line and added it at the end (linux .... acpi_osi="Windows 2012") ?12:16
OerHeks( only errors, if there are erros)12:16
k1lMattias: since 15.04 ubuntu uses systemd. but better ask your hoster what systemimage that is and what they use there12:16
MattiasOerHeks: It's not normal, every other ubuntu I've been on has shown messages that stopping service was ok etc12:16
Mattiask1l: Yeah, I guess. Just strange they left out such a useful thing.12:17
TJ-Dyjoe: Yes... and then booted that with pressing F10 or Ctrl+X ?12:17
DyjoeTJ-: yes , nothing changed12:18
OerHeksMattias, not always > http://paste.ubuntu.com/12124266/12:18
TJ-Dyjoe: quick way to find out which was used at boot is the search the kernel log: "grep osi /var/log/dmesg" should do it ... you should see 3 or more lines with that12:18
TJ-Dyjoe: you'll see 2 lines that report the kernel command line, and another which is what you want showing that setting is being activated12:19
MattiasOerHeks: Yes, not always, but that doesn't make it normal. It makes it a rare thing most likely due to a missing package.12:19
OerHeksMattias, what service exactly ? i guess it is normal12:19
Mattiasnginx, php5-fpm, munin-node, any service you can think of12:20
OerHeks"any service you can think of" is not true, i just showed.12:20
OerHeksi hanve no nginx running, so i cannot compare12:21
MattiasOerHeks: From my perspective on this specific vps, it is true.12:22
TJ-Dyjoe: I'm just reading the kernel documentation on the acpi_osi setting... there is another variation you sohuld try using a "!" to disable every other OSI option: use "apci_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2012"   "12:22
ioriaMattias, you can try with sudo systemctl status " something"12:23
TJ-Dyjoe: Aha! OK, a mistake there. Don't include the double quotes at the start. I write double-quotes in IRC to surround the things I want you to use. Don't include my surrounding double-quotes in what you type12:23
TJ-Dyjoe: you have  vt.handoff=7 "acpi_osi=Windows 2012"    it should be vt.handoff=7 acpi_osi=Windows 2012"12:24
TJ-Dyjoe: Sorry, typo again!      it should be: acpi_osi="Windows 2012"12:24
TJ-Dyjoe: however, next time try: acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2012"12:24
Mattiasioria: That gives me output as well as showing the restarts/stops/starts I've done for the specific service12:25
DyjoeTJ-:rebooting to try the ! one12:26
TJ-Dyjoe: *fingers crossed12:26
Mattiasioria: or is the service package  deprecated and I should use systemctl to start/stop services?12:26
Mattiasoh, systemctl restart nginx gave no output either12:27
OerHeksMattias, you still can use both, on 15.0412:27
ioriaMattias, do you have mysql ?12:27
Mattiasioria: Yes12:28
ioriaMattias, sudo systemctl status mysql12:28
Mattiasioria: is it just that, restart/start/stop/reload commands don't give output in ubuntu 15 anymore?12:28
Mattiasstatus does give me output12:29
ioriaMattias, sudo service mysql status12:29
Mattiasyeah, gives me the same output as systemctl status12:29
ioriaMattias, t gives or not ?12:30
ioriaMattias, and the problem is ?12:30
Mattiasioria: I've always had messages that shows if the restarting went ok or not12:31
ioriaMattias, can you post the output of  sudo systemctl status mysql  ?12:31
TJ-Mattias: that does seem to be a regression, if restart/start/stop/reload are no longer showing the stopped...started messages12:32
DyjoeTJ-: the quotes appear by themselves apparently acpi_osi=! "acpi_osi=Windows 2012" and this time i double checked it was only the windows 2012 in quotes12:32
MattiasTJ-: Do you get messages on version 15?12:32
TJ-Mattias: I don't use it12:32
TJ-Dyjoe: appear by themselves? you mean what you see in the dmesg log is different to what you typed in the boot loader when you edited it?12:33
TJ-Dyjoe: can you show me "cat /proc/cmdline" please?12:33
TJ-Dyjoe: I don't think the moving quotes matters anyhow, I'm just surprised the output is actually munged from what the user types12:35
Mattiasioria: http://pastebin.com/5Sx4cvbT12:36
TJ-Dyjoe: "grep -i osi /var/log/dmesg" should tell you if the osi setting has been acted on - we want a line other than those reporting the kernel command line that includes the "Windows 2012" phrase12:37
ioriaMattias, seems ok ....12:37
Mattiasioria: see how empty that restart command is? and on ubuntu 12-14 it is not12:37
ioriaMattias, let me boot my vivid ...12:37
TJ-Mattias: that looks OK to me; it shows the stop and start.12:38
MattiasTJ-: The bottom shows ubuntu 12-14, the top part shows ubuntu 1512:38
MattiasTJ-: it does not show stop start there, only under status in ubuntu 1512:39
TJ-Mattias: Ahhh, OK, sorry, didn't read it properly!12:39
TJ-Dyjoe: "ACPI: Added _OSI(Windows 2012)" that shows the setting was added12:39
TJ-Dyjoe: however, this may be the cause of the problem: "Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored"12:40
ioriaMattias, right ... no output ... i think is ok ...12:41
MattiasOr a new bug? :)12:42
ioriaMattias, i don't think so....12:42
TJ-ioria: Mattias what is on the end of 'service' "which service && readlink -e $(which service)"12:42
ioriaTJ- mysql12:43
TJ-ioria: I very much doubt it!12:43
ioriaTJ-  i'm using systemctl12:43
MattiasTJ-: Got /usr/sbin/service 2x on two separate lines12:43
TJ-Mattias: Good :) How about "file $(which service)"12:44
ioriaTJ-  sudo service mysql status gives Usage: /etc7init. ... etc etc12:44
Mattias/usr/sbin/service: POSIX shell script, ASCII text executable12:44
TJ-Mattias: Same as 14.04 so far. Now what is in it? Can you "pastebinit /usr/sbin/service" ?12:45
ioriaTJ-  sorry, misunderstood  you :P12:45
TJ-ioria: I gathered :P12:46
MattiasTJ-: It uses systemctl basically, I'll paste it12:46
TJ-Mattias: I suspect the old upstart calls for start/stop/reload/restart may have been replaced with systemd calls12:46
MattiasTJ-: yeah, no need to paste then ;) but that's basically what it does12:47
MattiasAnd systemctl returns no output ?12:47
OerHeksMattias, maybe a good idea to ask for a option for status after any systemd command.12:47
TJ-Mattias: and possibly systemd doesn't write anything to console by default12:47
TJ-Dyjoe: Could you "pastebinit /var/log/dmesg" ... I want to compare it with the dmesg we collected last night without the 2012 setting12:48
DyjoeTJ-:http://paste.ubuntu.com/12124453/ btw is there an alternative to unebootin? I can't seem to make it to make ntfs usbs12:50
TJ-Dyjoe: why do you want NTFS?12:51
Dyjoefrom what I've read that's what my usb stick needs to be in order for me to inst win 712:51
TJ-Dyjoe: if you have a Windows PXE ISO just write it to the USB... the internal layout of the ISO contains the file-system. A USB writer shouldn't get involved in manipulating the file system12:52
LonelyDanboCan someone give me a hint on how I can find the info on how to change my mouse's LED colors? I went searching for like [mouse hacking ubuntu] or something and found info on identifying the vendor and product #s, and stuff about button mapping, but nothing about LEDs.12:53
TJ-Dyjoe: if you're trying to make the USB a bootable persistent Windows install, then you'd have to consult some hybrid Windows PXE guides for that12:53
OerHeksLonelyDanbo, changing mouse led colours?? never heard of that. what mouse is this?12:53
LonelyDanboIt's a CMStorm {Cooler Master} Recon. It can change it's colors on Windows, but the software for that doesn't work in Wine.12:54
TJ-Why would a mouse have changeable LED colours - sounds worse than go-faster stripes on a car!12:54
LonelyDanboSorry, was meant to reply to OerHeks12:54
TJ-LonelyDanbo: you'd need to ask Cooler Master for Linux drivers, or tech specs for the interface12:54
LonelyDanboCooler Master doesn't have Linux drivers. I need to hack it.12:55
m0dul8rWhat hardware vendors sell computer with Ubuntu pre-installed?12:55
LonelyDanboI don't know how their software can change the colors in Windows but not Wine.12:55
MonkeyDustLonelyDanbo  this is no hacking space or channel12:55
LonelyDanboI just need to find info on how to read data from the mouse. So far all I've found is very specific about reading buttons.12:56
TJ-LonelyDanbo: because it requires a proprietary driver. Userspace needs the driver to communicate with the GPIOs that control the LEDs, presumably12:56
LonelyDanboI don't know what half of that means. Are you saying the signal sent over USB to the mouse is more complicated than normal?12:57
TJ-LonelyDanbo: for clues look at the Windows driver .inf file for the mouse; it'll probably contain clues about a separate driver file for the mouse LEDs, since the mouse actions themselves will likely be regular USB HID12:57
caronLonelyDanbo, it's because Wine depends on native drivers to control things like the mouse (not windows drivers). It's a better question for the #winehq channel.12:58
OerHeksa quick search gives me no clue for a linuxdriver12:58
LonelyDanbowindows driver .inf file. I'll see if their software has such a thing.12:58
TJ-LonelyDanbo: mice are human interface devices (HIDs). USB has a standard protocol for them, so no special driver is usually required (all OSes have one the supports USb-HID). LEDs are not HID, therefore they'll need a unique endpoint on the USB device, and likely a unique driver to talk to the endpoint12:59
LonelyDanboyes but why would the software designed to communicate with the mouse under Windows not be able to do so under Wine?12:59
TJ-LonelyDanbo: a windows driver .inf file tells Windows how to install and configure drivers, all driver packages have one12:59
TJ-LonelyDanbo: I already told you12:59
TJ-LonelyDanbo: the user interface *requires* a special driver that knows how to talk to the LED controller in the mouse13:00
MonkeyDustLonelyDanbo  because wine is not the same as windows13:00
=== m0dul8r is now known as m0dul8r_
TJ-LonelyDanbo: drivers are for the OS. Wine cannot/does not do drivers, only userspace13:00

blibupstart or systemd?13:39
TJ-blib: systemd units13:39
blibTJ-: is there a good tutorial on how to write services using systemd for 15.04 somewhere?13:40
xanguaBluewolf: that's the default gnome theme, not the dark version13:40
TJ-blib: the systemd documentation itself13:40
xanguaif a dark theme is what you want, you could search one at gnome-look.org Bluewolf13:41
Bluewolfxangua: Exactly, the dark version does not work on it. I want to get it like the dark version, the thing is that I don't want other themes because their will be something about them which bugs me. The Gnome default is perfect, I just need to change the colour of that window and I'm sold.13:43

dgbaleyAnyone know if nfsmount in the initrd on 14.04 is supposed to support nfs4?13:48
TJ-dgbaley: I'd suspect it depends if the nfs4 kernel module is included13:51
dgbaleyTJ-: It is but I still just can't get v4 to work, and I don't see anything in the source for nfsmount that lets you force a version number.13:52
TJ-dgbaley: the init script for nfs is /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/nfs13:54
dgbaleyTJ-: yeah, but that uses a small c tool from klibc "nfsmount" to do the mounting13:55
TJ-dgbaley: I see  "nfsmount -o nolock ${roflag} ${NFSOPTS} ${NFSROOT} ${rootmnt} " which suggests ${NFSOPTS} is the only thing that could influence it, but there's no specific "-t type" there13:55
TJ-dgbaley: I've booted over nfs v4 so I know it is possible.13:56
PCatineanHow does one give permissions to a user to do sudo nginx reload without entering the password?13:58
Bluewolfxangua: Any idea to change the colour of the window to the Dark version?13:59
persahi, I have a command that I want to run in a script and this command asks for a password. how can I pass the password as a parameter to this command when I invoke it in the script?13:59
dgbaleyTJ-: ah, that's good to know, 14.04?13:59
TJ-PCatinean: add an option to /etc/sudoers. See "man sudoers"13:59
TJ-dgbaley: for PXE/TFTP/NFS boots of releases back to 8.04 I think13:59
dgbaleyYeah but those weren't v4, I don't think even 10.04 supported v4 at all14:00

hateballwad: could you run apt-get autoremove, just for kicks?14:16
wadUgh, same problem, hung on the same line: update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-35-generic14:17
hateballthat should remove unused kernels etc, freeing up space. but it probably isnt the issue14:17

TechnobliteratorI'm fairly sure there's some bug or something that's causing it to be so slow, and I don't know what :/14:42
TJ-dgbaley: Learn something new every day. So the kernel doesn't support nfsv4 rootfs; my config must be using nfsv3 and I never realised since I set up the non-remote stuff to be v4 I assumed it all was14:43
TJ-dgbaley: defaults to v2 unless there's vers=314:43
OerHeksTechnobliterator, some wirelessdrivers are not optimum..  specially if it is wireless N: solution can be> trottle back to 54 mbit14:44

Jack64especially as in go for it or stay way from it?14:53
OerHeksJack64, no, maybe those drivers are suited for cuda hash cat14:55
Jack64I used the "Additional Controllers" menu to install the ones I currently have14:55
Jack64still no luck14:55
OerHeksJack64, that is oke, just add the ppa, and run that driver menu again14:56
OerHeksto reverse, if not working, use ppa-purge14:56
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html14:56
Jack64OerHeks: ok, I'll do that, check back in a bit. thanks14:56
TechnobliteratorOh, something I found online suggests it's to do with "power management" that is causing my USB wifi to run slower14:57
Technobliteratorcould that still be true in 15.04?14:57
OerHeksTechnobliterator, yes, powermanagment, or hardware-encryption. depends on what chipset14:58
Technobliteratorany way I can stop that?14:59
Jack64OerHeks: ok, ppa added and update done. now I pick 355 or 352, either one works? and after that, do I need something like optirun to run hashcat?15:01

SamYaplePici: thanks16:02
ash_workMonkeyDust: since I came across that post I didn't know what would be the best way to uninstall docker, although it would seem that case scenario is no longer relevant16:02

wangshidongis there any one use vim as java ide16:02
wangshidongany usefull plugin16:03
evilnebbydrkjstr: thanks. I should clarify that I would like to use the entire disk, but I would only like the ubuntu-vg/root logical volume to occupy ~20% leaving the remaining 80% for other logical volumes in the same volume group16:03
ash_workMonkeyDust: and I didn't know when reading that post if Eliah was mentioning 3 commands, or 2 (sudo apt-get purge ... or sudo apt-get --purge remove ...) when he says: "Using purge or --purge remove instead of remove does not reverse changes to existing systemwide configuration files provided by other packages or created manually by the user. However, sometimes such changes are undone by uninstalling the package (whether or not it's 16:04

ruindFLeiXiuS, OerHeks, ok, so it is like the oldschool debian installs.... thats what I want17:45
OerHeksoh br is not brazil, Spanish?17:45
SJrWhen I shutdown my computer for reboot or shutdown what runlevel does it go into?17:45
OerHeksruind, jups17:45
lickalottNilsR, i'm not versed on booting into an older kernel.  Is that in the menu that pops up in the beginning (i.e. edit my grub loader to select the older kernel)?17:46
NilsRif you get a menu with the choice of advanced boot or something sounding like that, you can selct it and get a list of kernels17:47
ActionParsnipSJr: runlevel 517:47
lickalottwill this assist in correcting my issue NilsR http://askubuntu.com/questions/82140/how-can-i-boot-with-an-older-kernel-version17:47
FLeiXiuSruind, Server installs are minimal.  It's essentially Ubuntu base with a server kernel.17:48
SJrHmmmm what is the best way to have a script execute on shutdown17:48
SJrregardless of why a shutdown occurred?17:48
ActionParsnipSJr: if you just run:   runlevel    you will see the current and last runlevel you used17:48
SJrYeah it just says N 217:48
NilsRlickalott: seems to me holding down the shift key should work17:49
ActionParsnipSJr: yes, N = Null, as you booted direct to level 217:49
SJrSo the web actually says runlevel 6 is reboot and runlevel 0 is halt. Can I just throw a script in rc0.d and rc6.d?17:49
NilsRlickalott: you shouldn't need to edit the grub menu though17:49
ActionParsnipSJr: you can add things to the runlevel commands to run whatever you wish17:49
ActionParsnipSJr: runlevel 6 is reboot17:50
lickalottNilsR, once I find the kernel version that works best I can edit that menu to only have that available right?17:50
NilsRlickalott: if you have a standard Ubuntu setup, grub will give you a selection of (at least) the four latest kernels17:50
SJrOkay thanks17:50
ActionParsnipSJr: 5 is GUI, 1 is single user, 3 is where the server boot stops17:50

fusrodaI created a new user on ubuntu, and I have to use "sudo" before every command. how do I change it18:19
fusrodaeven cp mp18:19
fusrodasorry :D18:20
Daemoenfusroda, how did you create the user ?18:20
Daemoenseems that the users PATH variable is not being set18:20
fusrodaI dont remember18:20

jd_techsudo -s18:20
kadiro!adduser | fusroda18:20
ubottufusroda: To add new users to your Ubuntu system, follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto - For administrative privileges, users need to be made members of the group "sudo" - See !sudo18:20
Gallomimiai think we need more information on your problem. are you logged in as that user? are you operating on files meant for your old user? does GUI work normal?18:20
jd_techjust use sudo -s to become root forever18:20
jd_techbe careful though!18:21
Daemoenjd_tech, ... please tell me youre being sarcastic18:21
jd_techDaemoen, ?18:21
Gallomimiadon't operate as root unless you HAVE to.18:21
Gallomimiaalso, running programs as root instead of your normal user, really really bad idea.18:21
Daemoenfusroda, before you go through all of that, do me a quick favor:  ls -lah /home/youruser/.[a-z]*18:21
Daemoen( dont paste that here though,  put it on pastebin/haste/etc )18:22
OerHeksfusroda, if mv/cp within the home folder need sudo, you did something wrong.18:22
fusrodaon my VPS18:22
jd_techwell fusroda was asking how to not type sudo before every command18:22
Daemoenjd_tech, no, he was saying that he has to type it for *all* commands on his system to be able to use them18:22
fusrodabut I like to use sudo before apt-get18:23

=== NotANick_ is now known as NotANick
Daemoenlol NotANick18:23
jd_techDaemoen, ummm, that's weird18:23
OerHeksjd_tech, kadiro WRONG idea, not a solution as we don't know what is going on18:23
Daemoenjd_tech, not if he created the user the *really* old way;  if he tried editing /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd/ and /etc/group manually, plus creating the home directory manually, all sorts of other steps have been overlooked18:24
kadiroOerHeks: he said do a sudo in every command is safe than to be root all the time18:24
Daemoenits not the *new* way of doing it, but back in the old days, it was how it had to be done none the less18:24
fusrodajd_tech, you are right18:25
OerHeksfusroda, see the Q from Gallomimia: how did you make that user? and " if mv/cp within the home folder need sudo, you did something wrong."18:25
jd_techDaemoen, ah okay18:25
jd_techtheres an adduser command right?18:25
jd_techmuch better18:26
Daemoenjd_tech, granted;  i think we are all making assumptions based on the vagueness of the issue, so it could be a number of things18:26
jd_techDaemoen, true18:26
Daemoenyou guys could be correct, it may be a perms issue on the home folder for instance;  or it could be a path issue, or any number of things XD18:26

jd_techwell if you manage to get Qemu on a phone :P18:30
OerHeksfusroda, so you don't remember the 'sudo password´ which is not there, it is the pass of the 1st account created.18:32
Gallomimiafusroda: can you tell me what user you're logged in as, what user you made, and what files you're trying to manipulate?18:32
Bluewolfdrkjstr: To answer your question. yes I did alter the colours using Tools --> Options --> Libre Office --> Appearance. But as you can see The window remains the same?18:32

AEL-HWhat is the result if I have two different devices mounted to /?19:38
Gallomimiauh....... you don't.19:38
OerHeksAEL-H, only with LVM you can do that, i guess.19:39
Gallomimianot that i've ever tried it, but i don't believe you can mount two things to the same mount point19:39
OerHeks(correct me if i am wrong)19:39
TJ-AEL-H: the 2nd mounted device will mask the first, hiding it and all directories/files on it19:39
Gallomimiait's possible to mount one at a time and only use that one. but i've heard that really messes up any user settings kept in a common, separately mounted /home19:39
OerHeksbishops, no, it does not work that way, ubuntu does not auto fetch keys19:40
bishopsIt's Ok found the solution, thanks guys!19:40
TJ-You can mount as many devices as you want to a mountpoint - only the last one will be visible19:40
bishopsOerHeks: all is good found a a solution19:41
AEL-HBasically my problem is I want more space in my root folder in order to install something, what other things should I look to do?19:41
GallomimiaTJ- that's a really interesting fact to know. can i then unmount them in any order and the top one on the stack will be the only one "there" ?19:41
Gallomimiaum.... autoclean apt, remove things you don't need? reduce the number of installed languages?19:42
TJ-Gallomimia: I would assume so; I use the trick sometimes to hide default files in the lower file-system, as a safe fall back if the 'upper' mounts don't happen. For example, for /var/cache/19:42
AEL-Hthere isn't much room to remove what space is already used..19:42
TJ-AEL-H: the most common solution is create a new file system for /var/ and move everything from rootfs/var/ into it19:43
Gallomimiawhat sort of device are you mounting there now? can't you grow it?19:43
UnPocoLoco*Logged in recently*: apt-get autoremove && apt-get clean19:43
TJ-AEL-H: same goes for /home/ if that isn't already a separate file system19:44
Gallomimiaunpocoloco i think you want apt-get autoclean not clean?19:44
Gallomimiaalso, before most any apt-get operations, you should do an update19:45

untriumthinkpad s44020:48
untriumthe touchpad only works after a short delay. i think it is in power saving mode, because after it is "activated" it works perfectly fine20:49
wileeeuntrium, Cool, so the primary issue is the tap pad going to power saving?  There are a number of wiki's, what is the computer model?20:50
untriumwhat do you mean by computer model?20:51
TJ-untrium: is it definitely power-saving? Could it be the touchpad disable that happens when keyboard typing is detected, to prevent stray cursor movement if your wrist brushes the touchpad?20:51
untriumi dont know if its a powersaving problem, that was merely guessed by me20:51
TJ-untrium: in other words does this occur at times when you are *not* using the keyboard?20:51
untriumit doesnt correlate with keyboard usage20:51
untriumyes it always happens20:51
TJ-untrium: OK, that helps narrow things down.20:52
untriumit doesnt happen if i have a usb mouse connected and used the usb mouse 1 sec before20:52

lickalottno sir.  I wasn't sure if you were responding to my issue or discussing a similar issue.21:06
lickalotti keep droping into busybox on initial boot.  However, I am forcing it to boot on 3.16 and it is still happening.21:07

untriumTJ: could it be something which seems for me to be a powersaving problem but is instead a poorly configuered touchpad? like the acclereation is set to a very low value, and it does max out, but before it maxes out i cant see a movement?21:10

k1l_lickalott: i am not the encryption guy, but without encyption i would have said to check if you got the right kernel and headers meta packages installed. (needed to build all the modules)21:10

lickalottI ran fedora for years (no issues) and BSD before that.21:10
donjuanHello guys, I have a problem with Conky. It probably launches another instance of the program and then it looks horrible, overimposed. I seem to be able to replicate it when I hit my hotkey I set up for moc.21:10
TJ-OpenSorce: OK; that is the usual cause. "df -h" will show for certain21:10
donjuanHow can I prevent it from happening?21:10
untriumTJ: also it adds the touchpad to /dev/input/event5 and /dev/input/mouse021:11

lickalottk1l_, whats the latest kernel package for 14.04?21:12

compdocwhats the best way to encript an existing directory? the directory is actually a drive thats mounted to /21:13
k1l_lickalott: depends on what enablement stack you run.21:13

lickalotthows 3.16.0-46.42 k1l_21:14
untriumcompdoc: backup the whole drive, then use dd to fill the drive with random numbers and after that use luks to encrypt the drive21:14
lickalottbut the generic linux kernel image shows
TJ-untrium: I'm not sure without seeing it for myself. There's some possible hints/clues/tests you can do from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad21:14
lickalottk1l_, first message /hows/shows21:16
TJ-OpenSorce: is the system booted with a good kernel? Take a look at the installed kernels and supporting initrd.img files, see if the sizes look 'wrong' compared to others: list most recent first with: "ls -latr /boot/"21:16
k1l_lickalott: linux-generic-lts-utopic would be the meta package for that 3.16 kernel branch21:18
TJ-lickalott: if you have full disk encryption the 'cryptsetup' tool will be installed in the initrd. In addition "/conf/conf.d/cryptroot" will contain the rootfs entry from the system's "/etc/crypttab"21:19
lickalottTJ-, k1l_ I am leaning towards the LUKS encryption being an issue (based on log research, etc...)  It seems to me it's timing out.  At times I don't even see the grub  menu to choose "advanced options" or the like.21:19
OpenSorceTJ-, it's running on 3.13.0-61 which has an initrd.img of 18767747 the one that won't boot 3.13.0-62 is 18766663. That looks about right.21:19
TJ-lickalott: you can check for those from busybox21:19
untriumTJ: i used xinput --test 10 (device number of the touchpad is 10) and found something odd. the "powersaving" issue is very strong if i move the horizontally and is weak, meaning it doesnt take long to activate the touchpad, if i move vertical21:19
lickalottTJ-, am I looking for something specific there?21:19
TJ-OpenSorce: I agree. Have you tried booting using the "Recovery" option on the "Advanced" menu from GRUB's boot manager menu (hold down shift at boot-time) ?21:20
TJ-lickalott: well, first of all, ensure those are there and the cryptroot file has something sensible in it21:20
OpenSorceTJ-, yeah same result. Right back to system boot screen and to the grub menu :-(21:20

ash_workthis is driving me crazy; are there shortcut command equivalents to dragging a window directly up, left, right etc? (ie: on Windows it's windows_key + arrow)21:23
untriumTJ: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12131088/ does this help? xinput list21:23
TJ-lickalott: right, but you also need to check what is in the initrd.img. Identify which one is in use ("ls /boot/initrd.img*") then extract its contents so you can check them: "mkdir /tmp/initrd && cd /tmp/intrd && zcat /boot/initrd.img-$VERSION | cpio -id" then take a look in "conf/conf.d/"21:24
ash_workalso, I can't stand alt+tab and waiting for a group of windows to expand... I'm sure there is a better way to access it... but clearly its not like ctrl+alt+tab or something21:24
lickalottall from busybox through right TJ-  or can I do that right now?21:24
TJ-OpenSorce: it sounds like the kernel image somehow gets corrupted first time around, doesn't it?21:24
donjuanash: ctrl+alt+number of position and alt+; to go through different windows of one program21:25
TJ-lickalott: those instructions I just gave can be done from the booted system. They replicate what you'd see if dumped to Busybox21:25
OpenSorceTJ-, exactly... I blame pintrest!21:25
lickalottcopy all.  thanks sir!21:25
TJ-lickalott: there's a file-system inside initrd.img ... those instructions extract it into /tmp/initrd/21:25
OpenSorceTJ-, lol, j/k okay. I'll fix it and tell her to let me know the next time it asks for updates21:26
TJ-OpenSorce: I think your best chance of figuring this out is next time a kernel upgrade is available, do it from the command-line and check for any errors reported from the update-initramfs and/or update-grub steps. You could even repeat those manually21:26
TJ-OpenSorce: as in do "sudo update-initramfs -u"  and "sudo update-grub"21:27
OpenSorceTJ-, yeah that's what I'm thinking21:27
TJ-OpenSorce:  if GRUB seems to try to load vmlinux but then you get returned to the GRUB menu without the system crashing and rebooting... that tells us GRUB cannot find the kernel filename it is told21:27
OpenSorceTJ-, I'm from Slackware... I'm used to manual :-P21:28
TJ-OpenSorce: if however GRUB loads a kernel which crashes and causes a reboot, then that tells us the kernel image is corrupted21:28
OpenSorceTJ-, yep21:28

TJ-lickalott: are you familiar with how the initrd.img is created?21:41
lickalottno sir21:41
untriumlickalott: mousepad works, but it has a short delay till i can use it21:41
untriumTJ: ok, thank you21:41
lickalottafter boot up or after you touch it?21:41
TJ-lickalott: OK... bit of background. When a kernel is installed, or some change that affects boot-time kernel config is made, the command "update-initramfs" is executed. It calls 'hook' scripts installed by things like cryptsetup, which in turn generate/copy files to be included in the initrd, which update-initramfs wrap into a mini-filesystem inside /boot/initrd.img-$VERSION21:43
TJ-lickalott: We can run update-initramfs manually in 'verbose' mode so it tells us what it is doing, and examine that to see if it gives clues. This command will capture the output to a log file which you can put in a pastebin:21:43
TJ-lickalott: "sudo update-initramfs -u -k $(uname -r) |& tee /tmp/initrd.log"  ... when it is done you can paste it using "pastebinit /tmp/initrd.log"21:44
TJ-untrium: I still wonder if it is the keyboard disable functionality causing this... worth checking if that setting still exists in the control panel for the touchpad21:45
TJ-lickalott: hang on! I got that command wrong... there won't be output!!21:46
TJ-lickalott: Let's add -v so we get verbose output! "sudo update-initramfs -vu -k $(uname -r) |& tee /tmp/initrd.log"  ... when it is done you can paste it using "pastebinit /tmp/initrd.log"21:46

TJ-lickalott: mmmm data :)21:47
lickalottin assuming that we'd be looking for SATA controller module issues or kernel issues, would I be wrong?21:48
goddardhow can i install a newer kernel?21:49
goddardor at least get newer drivers21:49
untriumTJ: i disabled the touchpad-keyboard option in the control panel. same as before21:49
goddardversion 3.1 is super old21:49
TJ-lickalott: line 598 onwards show what I'd expect to see "Calling hook cryptroot"21:49
bekksgoddard: Newer drivers for what?21:49
goddardbekks: my trackpad21:49
TJ-untrium: that rules that out then, one would think21:49
bekksgoddard: Whats the output of "uname -a"?21:49
goddardbekks: i have a 2015 razer blade and I have no gesture support21:49
bekksgoddard: Thats version 3.19.0-26, not 3.1 :)21:50
goddardbekks: still old21:50
goddardbekks: version 4 is out and stable21:50
bozeI'm setting up a new web dev environment. It's easy enough to run apache on ssd and point to files on a rotational drive, but I can't seem to find a good resource on doing so with mysql. is it possible to run mysql on ssd and keep the databases on another drive?21:51
goddardbekks: it also supports my trackpad21:51
TJ-lickalott: In theory the new initrd.img should have a cryptroot with only one line in it, but I want to expand the output from update-initramfs first, to be sure what is going on21:51
IchEsseDichAufhow to start a network isolated shell?21:52
bekksgoddard: Ubuntu isnt a distro which will ship the latest and greatest all the time.21:52
k1l_goddard: 3.1 is not the same as 3.1921:52
goddardk1l_: thanks for pointing that out a second time it was a typo21:52
goddardbekks: still how can I fix my touchpad issue?21:52
k1l_goddard: due to the release system (with the freeze date prior to the release date) a 4.x kernel will first be running in 15.1021:53
TJ-lickalott: I'm testing it here to be sure the changes give me what I need21:53
goddardk1l_: thats good21:53
goddardk1l_: so I have to wait a few more months until I can get this touchpad working?21:53
clementec'è qualche italiano?21:53

goddardbekks: how do you know that?21:54
TJ-lickalott: right. I've got a change you can make so we can capture what the script is doing21:54
bekksgoddard: By a 10s google journey, for finding out wether touchpad gesture support is provided by the kernel at all.21:54
k1l_goddard: in here we support what is officially released by ubuntu. so yes. you could try the 15.10 alpha or try a !mainline kernel or compile the module for the touchpad yourself or see if there is already a package solving that issue21:55
clementethank you21:55
lickalottthis system has only been up for a month-ish.  Would it just be easier to rebuild with no encryption?21:55
TJ-lickalott: before that, can you "pastebinit /etc/fstab" ?21:55
lickalottTJ-, http://paste.ubuntu.com/12131401/21:55
TJ-lickalott: you may have found a bug... it would be better to be sure why it happens. I've used FDE for several years and never seen this21:55
goddardbekks: so I am so stupid I can't do a google search? thanks appreciate the soft insult21:55
bekksgoddard: No one said you are stupid or anything like that. _I_ googled it, since _I_ didnt know which component provides the functionality in question.21:56
goddardk1l_: thats great and I don't mind waiting, but I would like to be able to get it working for me now21:56
goddardk1l_: how do I find out what part of the new kernel makes it work and put that into my system now?  I am not a linux developer I am just a user21:57

lickalottim good cli21:58
goddardbekks: i never insulted you I just wanted help to fix the issue not learn how knowledge everyone else is21:58
OerHeksgoddard, ah, a fresh machine, you might be right and try a newer kernel from the mainline ppa .. i noticed this page some days ago ( not for myself)  https://alexcabal.com/get-a-working-touchpad-on-a-14-razer-blade-running-linuxubuntu/21:59

goddardOerHeks: thanks22:00
TJ-lickalott: OK. which ever your preferred text editor is. I prefer vim, so I'd do "sudo vim /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/cryptroot" move to the 2nd line (which is blank) add add "set -x" by pressing I to insert mode, typing the text, then Esc to get back to command mode, then :wq22:00

TJ-lickalott: which Ubuntu release is that you are using ("lsb_release -r") ?22:09
lickalottso the vg-swap being added is causing the issues?22:09
lickalotti don't show a swap in df -h22:10
lickalott^ not sure if that means anything22:10
TJ-lickalott: yes, because the target= entry is the /dev/mapper/XXXX filename to put the encrypted device on... which looks like rootfs gets mounted to /dev/mapper/sda5_crypt and then it goes and puts swap there as well, or some such. Whatever it does, swap should NOT be in the cryptroot in initrd.img, so there is a bug somewhere22:10
lickalotti don't like being "the bug guy"22:11

TJ-lickalott: can you show me "pastebinit <( sudo lsblk -f )"22:11

digitalgalaxy_-Raziel86 That sounds a lot like what TJ was talking about.  Check this link here for more info, at least what I found:22:56
Raziel86TJ- we tried deleting blacklist-bcm43.conf and it says no such file or directory.22:56
TJ-Raziel86: "sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf"22:57
TJ-Raziel86: you can then manually load the module with "sudo modprobe b44"22:58
Raziel86TJ- we tried that and it says no such file or directory when trying to remove that file22:58
TJ-Raziel86: you must have mistyped. grep clearly shows the filename22:58
digitalgalaxy_Razile86- it looks like that link says to comment out a blacklist line, rather than delete a blacklist.conf file.  It might just be in a different file in your distro or version.  What's your ubuntu version raziel86?22:59

wileeeash_work, arrpw buttons are when you get to the grub edit, try esc or shift when powering on, test the commands for now.23:04
TJ-lickalott: I figured out why the 2 entries get put in cryptroot. It's because both are inside the crypted device. However, the swap doesn't need to be available at initrd time so it is a definite bug for it being there23:05
ash_workTJ-: behind linux... like acpi_osi=linux /boot/vmlinuz-... ro      quiet splash nomodeset23:05
TJ-lickalott: What I propose you do, as a test, is to manually edit cryptroot so it only has the rootdev line, rebuild the initrd.img and try booting with it. If that works we know that was the problem. If it doesn't work, we know that is incidental and something else is wrong23:06
TJ-ash_work: preferably at the end of the existing options, not at the start of the line23:06

Gallomimiayeah. the grub file needs to get installed by.... something. i'm fuzzy at that point. mine's quite broken23:17
kadiroash_work: but for testing if work you must to edit grub.cfg23:17
kadirogood night all23:19
NGC3982Oh hai.23:19
KoningI've got a small question, my grub menu is messed up23:20
Koningmemtest is the first option and ubuntu the last one23:20
Koninghow can I reverse the order23:20
TJ-ash_work: editing the kernel command-line at boot-time is for testing/manual one-off. To make the change permanent edit "/etc/default/grub" and include the option(s) in  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX   then update the "/boot/grub/grub.cfg" by doing "sudo update-grub"23:20
columbobaasKoning: grub-customizer23:20
wileeeno no no23:20
Koningyeah, noooo, yeaaaah, nooooooo23:20
Koningin that program it shows up right23:20
Koningbut in the grub menu it doesn't23:21
k1l_Koning: what did you do before that grub menu got messed up?23:21
Koningsudo grub-install /dev/sda23:22
Koningafter eOS's grub overwrote the ubuntu one23:22
TJ-Koning: the GRUB menuentry order is controlled by the order of execution of the scripts in "/etc/grub.d/" - filenames start with a number. lower numbers are executed first23:22
Koningah, I'll check those files TJ-23:22
TJ-Koning: here's the expected config: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12131986/23:23
columbobaasSomebody else problems with latest upgrade with the non-free amd drivers? (fglrx)23:23
TJ-Koning: ignore "10_custom_linux_menu_sort" that is my own customisation that puts -rc kernels last in the list23:24
k1l_columbobaas: was there an issue with the install? can you show the logs in /var/log/apt ?23:24
KoningTJ- this is what I have http://paste.ubuntu.com/12131998/23:25
columbobaask1l_: yes indeed, always a system error. unable to install fglrx. But I did a clean install so i cant show you the logs. After reboot: i came in low resolution mode.23:26
TJ-Koning: that isn't an Ubuntu install!23:26
KoningI am running ubuntu though23:26
Koningubuntu and eOS23:26
TJ-Koning: but what you have there is nothing like what Ubuntu installs23:26
Koningis there a way to nuke what I have and rebuild a clean boot config?23:27
columbobaasKoning isn't there an option in recovery mode in your grub menu?23:27
k1l_columbobaas: well, its hard to get to the cause of that issue without having that logs anymore23:27
k1l_Koning: so you are in eOS right now?23:27
Koningno, I'm in ubuntu right now23:28
Koninggrub isn't broken, it's just that the order is all wrong23:28
k1l_Koning: so you definately did manual changes there23:29
columbobaask1l_: I thought i read: no screens found in the log.23:29
KoningI didn't but grub customizer might have23:29
k1l_columbobaas: we will not solve that issue without that logs23:29
TJ-Koning: something has been altering the /etc/grub.d/ scripts totally. First, remove whatever did that and hope it returns things to normal23:29
chingaoTechMonger, maybe this will help http://askubuntu.com/questions/95391/how-do-i-mount-an-sd-card23:30
TJ-Koning: after that, delete the files from /etc/grub.d/ and reinstall the package: "sudo apt-get --reinstall install grub-common" then "sudo update-grub"23:30
columbobaask1l_ after that: i compiled kernel 4.1 and tried again but no result. But Ubuntu 14.04.3 works fine and i can try again in october maybe.23:30
KoningTJ- reinstall isn't recognized23:32
KoningTJ- Doing what you said leaves my /etc/grub.d folder empty23:36
MonkeyDustKoning  i followed it a bit ... maybe ubuntu gnerates a new grub.d, after you rename it to grub.ddd or so23:38
TJ-Koning: aha... I suspected it might. "sudo apt-get --reinstall install -o Dpkg::Options::='--force-confmiss' grub-common"23:38
Koningnah, I moved the grub.d folder, did a grub reinstall, grub update, grub install and everything was blank23:38
TJ-Koning: when the sysadmin removes conf files dpkg assumes we know what we're doing, and doesn't try to install them23:39
Koningah cool23:39
KoningI'm gonna reboot and hope everything is fine, if I'm not back again this time tomorrow, carry on23:40
TJ-Koning: you did do update-grub?23:41
Koningdo I need to do a grub-install ?23:41
TJ-Koning: *after* grub-common put those scripts back in /etc/grub.d/ ?23:41
TJ-Koning: usually ... no ... grub-install writes the boot-strap and core.img, but it won't hurt to do it if you've got multiple OSes on the system arguing over which OS gets to control grub23:42
Koningthat sounds pretty low level :p23:43
TJ-Koning: grub-install also ensure all the grub modules are in /boot/grub/${ARCH}-${FW_TYPE}/23:43
KoningDo you know where exactly grub is installed when I choose /dev/sda?23:43
k1l_in the mbr23:44
Koningand is that on somehting like a partition or does my disk have reserved space for that?23:44
TJ-Koning: yes. the first 440 bytes of sector 0 of /dev/sda gets the bootstrap. core.img is written in the spare sectors from sector 1 to the start of the first partition (usually sector 2048)23:44
k1l_its like a reserved space23:44
Koningaaah, that explains that starting point :)23:45
asbaspI don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I'm using a Koding.com VMS that has Ubuntu 14.04 installed, as well as the trusty repos. However, lftp isn't installed, and it also says "unable to locate package lftp" when I try to apt-get. Is there a quirk with sources.list, or does Koding.com not allow users to have lftp on their box?23:45
TJ-Koning: on GPT disk-labels core.img is written into a BIOS boot partition which gdisk tools give the short code 0xEF0223:45
Koning440 bytes seems like so little space :p23:45
Bashing-omKoning: TJ- 's great tutorial on where/how.whu boot coding : https://iam.tj/kb/pc/boot/#a_bootloader .23:46
TJ-Koning: that is why it is called the bootstrap. It is loaded to address 0x7C00 in memory, and executed. It then calls BIOS disk services to load sectors 1-2048-ish into memory, and jumps into that code23:46
Koningdo you mean the necesairy /boot partition from UEFI?23:46
asbaspFor the record, here's what my sources.list looks like: https://bpaste.net/raw/879bf4b6394d23:46
TJ-Koning: For UEFI, firmware looks for the EFI system partition (that gdisk tools call 0xEF00) which must have a FAT file-system in, and reads an EFI executable.23:47
TJ-Bashing-om: I'd forgotten about that! I need to update and expand it :)23:48
Bashing-omTJ-: :) I use and refer it a LOT .23:48
k1l_!info lftp23:49
ubottulftp (source: lftp): Sophisticated command-line FTP/HTTP/BitTorrent client programs. In component main, is optional. Version 4.6.1-2 (vivid), package size 457 kB, installed size 1296 kB23:49
k1l_asbasp: what says: "sudo apt-get update && apt-cache policy lftp"23:49
TJ-Bashing-om: I'd best get cracking on it then, there's some embarrassing bugs23:49
Koningis an initramfs required?23:50
Bashing-omTJ-: I have had no adverse reactions .23:50
KoningI once read an article that said it's slow/bad (can't really remember)23:50
TJ-Bashing-om: good... but I noticed some glaring omissions and misleading statements/diagrams23:51
=== BOHverkill_ is now known as BOHverkill
TJ-Koning: initrd.img is the kernel's bootstrap into the real root file-system. Usually required for all by the simplest configs23:51
KoningDoesn't arch use something else?23:52
Koningit might be mkinitcpio I'm thinkging about23:53
yeplaat the last upgrade fglrx seems broken still the case?23:54
TJ-Koning: cpio is the tool used to create the file-system inside the initrd.img, before it is gzip-ed23:54
TJ-Koning: different distros use different tools to create the initrd, but they all do basically the same thing23:55
aluhow do I see if I have cuda installed23:55
aluI have GTX 960 hooked up to ubuntu machine with driver installed23:55
TJ-Koning: Debian/Ubuntu used intramfs-tools and the "update-initramfs" command23:55
Bashing-omTJ-: OT ... I looked on your desk(s) the other day, I did not see a soldiering iron or a motherboard. Maybe you can find the time to devote to the update of the booting sequence tutorial .23:56
yepladoes fglrx is broken ?23:56
columbobaasyepla, YES23:57
TJ-alu: "nvidia-settings -e CUDACores"23:57
yeplai want play ark23:57
7JTAAIGY8I have ubuntu 15.04, and the wifi just stopped working. The little blue wif LED  is lit but on the connections tab, the wifi button is grayed out. if I go to systems network, wireless is turned off, and I can;t turn it back on. Does anyone know how to fix this?23:57
columbobaasyepla, after upgrade23:57
TJ-Bashing-om: you did not, or you did?23:57
yeplacolumbobaas: yes23:58
columbobaasyepla, i installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 and fglrx and it's fine23:58
Bashing-omTJ-: I did ( you posted in another channel the .img of your work space ) .23:58
TJ-Bashing-om: I was going to say... if you missed the rework station!23:58
yeplacolumbobaas: i will wait23:59
yeplastill problem all the time problem23:59
yeplastart be boring23:59
