rasustohello all. Can someone help me? I'm trying to compile gnu screen from source00:47
somsiprasusto: why?00:47
rasustoI'm trying to install it locally on a machine where I don't have root00:47
somsiprasusto: compiling is not normally support here but maybe it's a simple issue. What's the problem?00:48
rasustoI run ./configure and there is a dependency error for something called tgetent. I googled it and it's in a package called termcap. The thing is, I don't have root and I don't know to to install that package locally so I can compile00:51
somsiprasusto: I'd recommend contacting your sysadmin00:52
aukrasusto: i hear there's also linuxbrew that might help your problem00:52
aukrasusto: homebrew but for linux, facilitates non-root installs00:53
aukrasusto: http://brew.sh/linuxbrew/00:53
aukrasusto: of course, your machine root needs to already have the dependencies... including ruby00:55

aukrasusto: yeah, it's written in ruby i think01:06
petypeytauk: no it's is01:06
aukrasusto: you could maybe try just downloading a screen binary01:06
rasustoI would be very surprised if there wasn't a way to download the dependency tarball and compile against that01:06
=== hugegree_ is now known as hugegreenbug
somsiprasusto: prepare to be surprised. There is a reason why your sysadmin does not want you to have root01:07
rasustoI don't know where to extract it, or if the configure script would be able to find it unless I change it myself01:07
somsiprasusto: you would normall use configure --prefix=~/some/install/path01:08
rasustosomsip: does that add /some/install/path to the list of places the configure script looks? or does that only look in that directory then?01:10
somsiprasusto: it installs the compiled software to that path. But I think this could be futile for what you need - dependency hell could not be far away. Speak to your sysadmin and ask for screen to be installed01:11
rasustosomsip, auk my new approach is to compile a static executable and copy it to the other machine01:30

bazhangguest88481, use gufw then01:36
bazhangguest88481, we cannot choose for you01:37

cfhowlettradiel892, in single user, you can only make temporary/next boot edits, iirc. to make permanent changes, you have to boot into your admin account then sudo the edits04:00
cfhowlettdisappearedng, looks like a waste of time. ask your UBUNTU question in this channel.04:00

cfhowlettreport the url04:10
purr_unable to locate package foo04:11
Bashing-ompurr_: (??) . Generally the headers for the kernel are required to build the modulle . The linux-hearders is downloadable from the repo .04:11
cfhowlettpurr_, foo is a placeholder for a package name.  In other words, replace it with your actual packagename04:12
purr_I am doing this right now: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaManual04:14
purr_Oh okay, sorry about not understanding that. I am not sure what the package name is though because it is packed in the cuda 7 run file04:14

Bashing-ompurr_: Food for thought, if ya stay within the repo then you do not have to yourself manage the driver breakage and updates. The package manager will do all that for you .04:33
purr_that is that I did so far04:34
Bashing-ompurr_: Look'n at your http://paste.ubuntu.com/12190361/ .04:35
purr_Bashing-on, I completely agree! I have had success installing cuda via repos on two other computers. This one says that it can not be found so I am doing it manually.04:35
Bashing-ompurr_: See if the kernel headers are present ' ls -al /usr/src/ ' for the kernel you are booting ' uname -r ' .04:38
purr_yes, they are there: 3.13.0-62-generic is in the /usr/src folder and the result of uname -r04:40
Bashing-ompurr_: Maybe I am in left field, but direct the cuda installer to that location for the headers ??04:43

IzuraHey room,10:07
PanVHello: https://askubuntu.com/questions/665548/steam-not-launching-after-switching-graphics-card10:07
PanVMy Steam Client stopped working after switching graphics card10:08
Izurahas anyone here experienced a red stop sign in place of the keyboard applet in the top panel?10:09
k1lIzura: run a "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" in terminal and show the output in a pastebin please10:09
cfhowlettPanV, sudo apt-get install --reinstall steam              I'm guessing that steam fails as it can't configure for the now absent card.  reinstall should get address that.10:10
IzuraThanks k1l, doing that right now. Forgive my ignorance but what is pastebin?10:12

cfhowlettPanV, ??10:12
PanVWill all the games installed delete?10:12
PanV@cfhowlett All the games I Installed with steam will be deleted after the re-install?10:13
cfhowlettPanV, no but you'll probably experience the games reinitializing/reauthorizing on steam.  perhaps backup your .steam before reinstall?10:13
PanVMeh no want Steam backup.. I got Steam Cloud, right?10:14
PanVIt backs up my progress if I am correct10:14
cfhowlettPanV, you misunderstand10:14
cfhowlettPanV, rename /home/pavnv/.steam to OLD.steam or something.  reinstall.  do NOT start steam!  rename old.steam to .steam10:15
PanVErm... I get to my home, I rename steam folder, I reinstall it then without starting it I name it back to .steam10:15
PanVDid I get it correct?10:15
cfhowlettPanV, yep.10:16
cfhowlettPanV, if you forget and start steam, a new .steam is created  - an  EMPTY .steam10:16
k1lPanV: from what video card to what video card did you make the change?10:16

IzuraSorry for the delay k1l. first time pastebin user. http://pastebin.com/mdP8BHtU10:25
k1lIzura: that seemed to be succesfull. so is that red triangel icon still present?10:26
IzuraThanks, no the sign is still present. it's a red stop/cancel sign. (a circle with a line through it)10:28

PanVcfhowlett, I got an installer on a DVDD10:38

k1lPanV: stop10:43
PanVI don't think so10:43

k1lis fglrx package installed or not?10:44
PanVI have no diea10:44
cfhowlettPanV, of the 3 top card makers, amd is known for being the least linux friendly.  if you can, consider trading that card for something more usable10:44

k1lPanV: stop10:47
PanVI did not install anything rather than fglrx..10:47
k1lPanV: first lets work out if the ubuntu fglrx (which is the amd website driver but made working with ubuntu already) works.10:48
capsicumsprayhi not sure what happened but is firefox broken with the latest update.10:48
PanVThe Ubuntu driver seems to work (if its supposed to be Gallium 0.4 on AMD OLAND) I am waiting for fglrx to install10:49
cfhowlettcapsicumspray, works fine on 14.04.310:49
k1lcapsicumspray: could be that some of your plugins are not made working with the latest release. but firefox is not known to be broken10:49
capsicumsprayok. dont know of any plugins. just a standard install. how can I run without plugins10:50
PanVDone, ktl10:50

capsicumsprayno when run as user I get a permission denied message which is the obvious cause of my misfortune. Clearly somehow my home directory permissions appear to been stuffed up.10:56

PanVI even used it11:02
PanVand sent the output here11:02
cfhowlettcapsicumspray, "and I will never root again cuz ubuntu uses "sudo"."  say it.11:02
k1lPanV: no you didnt. i requested just a confimation as if the fglrx is isntalled or not. you did not show the installation log and if there were errors (like error for building the kernel module)11:03
PanVOh. I was supposed to sent the installation log.11:03
capsicumspraydont know what caused it. I only use sudo when apt-get or update. Perhaps I did it by accident. It certainly wasnt intentional. I will be checking my history11:03
mcphailKingKhan: do you still need to run "aticonfig --initial" these days after fglrx installation? Perhaps PanV needs to do that?11:04
k1lPanV: no. i asked you if there were any errors.11:04
PanVI didnt notice11:04
PanVthe command was usable though11:04
EriC^^PanV: /var/log/apt/term.log should show the latest terminal outputs for apt-get11:05
k1lPanV: because your situation now can be caused by errors while installing. since we cant see anything you do we are completly blind and need you to give informations or bring them after we requested them.11:05

k1lmcphail: i dont know.11:05

mcphaildreamcat4: the scripts will download and install a particular wine version for a particular app, but you can override that if you want12:03

bishopsHi all, I have this weird thing happening on my ubuntu box, this morning I woke up to see two folders in my Home folder with weird letter names. I moved them to the trash as I couldn't open them. Trying to trash the system freezes and i have to force a restart and moving them back to Home folder does the same. Any suggestions???12:18
mcphailbishops: check your disk12:18
bishopsmcphail: check what and how?12:18
mcphailbishops: first, check "dmesg" for disk errors. Then, run a SMART check (and an fsck). But make sure your data is backed up12:19
whaticanесть русскоязычные? здравствуйте12:20
RealPanVCould I ask one more unrelated question? Ben6412:20

mcphailbishops: I'm irc'ing over a mobile phone, so probably won't be able to read it very well :)12:23
bishopsmcphail: alright no worries. there seem to be a problem, but for me it's gibberish :)12:24
mcphailbishops: if you run "dmesg | grep -i ata" and see if there are lots of errors mentioned, that should be a clue12:24
sakI fail to install bind9 on blackbuntu. help me12:24

auronandacesak: that is not a supported ubuntu derivative12:25
Ben64sak: that is not a supported derivative, check their website for support channels12:25
mcphailbishops: then best check the SMART status of the disk. I can't remember the recommended tool for that, but someone on channel will be able to point you in the right direction12:26
bishopsmcphail: alright thanks for the help12:26
mcphailbishops: after that, consider running an fsck, if your filesystem supports it12:26
bishopsmcphail: I'm just wondering why did this happen in the first place!12:26
mcphailbishops: probably a failing disk or an interruption in power during a disk write, I would guess12:27

milwaukeeo7 all, anyone very familiar with remmina? I know this isn't a remmina channel but since it comes default with Ubuntu I thought it'd be appropriate12:27
mcphailbishops: funny things happen with a corrupted filesystem12:28
trijntjebishops: you can use the program 'disks' to see if your harddisk is failing. Do you remember the exact name of the folders, that might give a hint as to what they are12:28
ioriabishops, did you connect an Apple device ?12:29
bishopstrijntje: folder names (currently in the trash): t6tVuSgbkt & qHtIUNpxao12:29

sakcan you do port forwarding on a key 3g12:30
bishopstrijntje: I opened disks program now what?12:31
trijntjebishops: in the left panel it should show your harddisk(s), and on the right it should say: Assessment: Disk is OK (temperature)12:32
bishopstrijntje: Yes it says Disk is OK12:33
trijntjeyou can also hit ctrl+s for more detailed metrics about how the disk is doing, but those are pretty confusing12:33
bishopstrijntje: Yes I've seen those looks fine even if I don't understand much12:33
ioriabishops, have you tried to remove from command line ?12:34
trijntjebishops: if Assessment doesn't show x bad sectors its probably not an issue with the harddisk (I guess)12:34
bishopsioria: yes tried command line. Nothing happens, it just thinks for a long time, and the system starts overheating12:35
ioriabishops, with ls -ls you can chech the owner and the size ...12:37

PanVCan anybody help me? I can't login14:09
PanVto ubuntu14:09
EriC^^loki_: if you installed apache2 via the repos then it'll update as ubuntu release it in the repos14:09
PanVOh hi EriC.. I did the same mistake14:10
leonichello i am in a ubutu 14.04 live  usb  , i wanto to isntall a ubuntu mate iso in another usb  what do i need14:10
loki_EriC^^, but it is always 2.4.7... as i read they just fixed version and back port only security issues.14:10
EriC^^leonic: sudo dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M && sync14:10
PanVCould you just tell me how to connect to internet on Recovery Mode?14:10
EriC^^leonic: type sudo parted -l to get the list of disks and your usb's name14:10
cfhowlettleonic, torrent the ubuntu-mate .iso and either use command line or ubuntu startup disk creator to make the USB14:10
MonkeyDustleonic  in the live session, install unetbootin, download the mate iso and proceed14:10
EriC^^PanV: enable networking should do it14:10
EriC^^PanV: what same mistake?14:11
PanValready done eric14:11
PanVit seems to not be connected14:11
PanVI tried to install fglxr14:11
EriC^^purge it, try installing fglrx-updates maybe, if you need it14:11
PanVNow I purged it and want to get xorg back, I got the command for a clean install14:11
shafoxI am trying to connect to my data card i.e. photon plus I am in india, but it doesnt detect in my wireless connection list14:12
PanVEriC, what is the difference?14:12
EriC^^PanV: fglrx-updates has newer drivers14:12
koustuvshafox: you can use sakis3g script. i have vodafone 3g and i use it, works like a charm14:12
AgitimeDoes anyone know if it's possible to connect a PC (Windows 7) to a laptop (Ubuntu 14.04), where I can control the PC through the laptop simply by switching a "window"?14:13

AgitimeSort of like Teamviewer I suppose14:13
PantsuAgitime: rdesktop, vnc14:13
PanV@Agitime Talking about Virtual Box?14:13
shafoxkoustuv: thing is even if i try to add a connection it doesnt show up in the device list but in the lsusb it does show up as a device14:13
EriC^^PanV: purge fglrx, then boot normally and install fglrx-updates14:13
PantsuAgitime: windows supports rdesktop out of the box14:13
leonicdo you mean torrent the mate iso to chks if  is in good shape?; i just use the mk5um  and i looked good y think14:14
PanVEriC, can I boot with no drivers?14:14
cfhowlettleonic, do you HAVE the mate .iso?14:14
EriC^^PanV: you don't have the xorg driver anymore?14:14
Agitime@Pantsu Not really like that, I have a desktop PC standing by but I want to be able to control it with the laptop keyboard and mouse14:14
PanVI dont think so14:14
PantsuAgitime: rdesktop lets you do that14:15
PanVlet me see14:15
PantsuAgitime: or you can use a KVMoIP solution14:15
Pantsu(most of them suck)14:15
AgitimeOh okay, I'll check it out. Thanks!14:15
koustuvshafox: yup same problem i had. try it with the sakis3g script once and see how it goes14:15
PanVCan I boot?14:15
shafoxkoustuv: thanks will give it a go14:15

kasperHi...i was here earlier with a wifi issue14:35
ali_i mean apt-get14:35
PanVkasper, #wifi14:35
cfhowlettali_, to install you need apt or apt-get.14:35
kasperlol seriously?14:35
leonicthanks rebboting now14:35
kasperanyway...i found intel website...saying something like #cp iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode /lib/firmware14:36
kasperand then "you can now load the firmware"14:36
kasperThis might sound absurd...but how do i load the firmware?!14:37
PanVKadper, just like you would load a program14:37
kasperplus how do i check if the installation worked?14:37
kasperPanV, so how do i load a program? i am an absolute terminal newb and i don want to demolish my system14:38
PanVkasper, is there a download button?14:39
kasperi downloaded a .tgz file...unwrapped it and it contains a readme a license and a .ucode14:39
leonicmmm i thiks i make t usb bootable  so i just have to  install it after booting instead of just try it whiout install14:40
PanVyou dont always need to have the terminal thing14:40
=== zengine_ is now known as zengine
kasperPanV, cant seem to find the files though...only that .tgz one14:42
=== superman is now known as karo
TJ-kasper: the .ucode file is the firmware, (u is an abortion of the micro (mew) symbol - read ucode as 'microcode')14:43
kasperyes i got that :) question is how do i load it...the instructions are very generic and it keeps saying it all depends on my distro14:43
TJ-kasper: The kernel/udevd looks for all firmware files in "/lib/firmware/" - transfer the file to that directory and when the kernel module loads and requests its firmware, the kernel/udevd will find it14:43
kasperif i have x y or z depends on what distro i use14:43
kasperok...so that means a reboot...that loads the kernel i guess?14:44
TJ-kasper: no, if the module is dynamically loaded no boot is needed14:44
kasperTJ-, so another silly question...i think (like on the mac) the /lib/firmware is hidden by default?14:45
TJ-kasper: You can unload the module if it is already loaded ("modprobe -r <module-name>)" and reload it "modprobe <module-name>"14:45
kasperto prevent newbs like me from trashing their system14:45
TJ-kasper: No, "/lib/firmware/" is writeable by root only. To copy a file into it use sudo. As in "sudo cp filename.ucode /lib/firmware/"14:46
TJ-kasper: you can use "lsmod" to LiSt MODules curently in memory, to find out if you need to unload it first. E.g. "lsmod | grep iwl" will limit results that contain the string 'iwl'14:47
TJ-kasper: to be sure you have the correct firmware file, you can check what the module will ask for with "modinfo <module-name>" and look at the lines prefixed "firmware:"14:48
PanVI cannot *ing launch the *ing Steam App -.-14:48

ali_is there any way?14:53
kasperTJ-, ok so it's allready installed :-((14:54
cfhowlettali_, this is the same ubuntu you castrated by removing apt and apt-get?14:54
kasperso it's not a firmware issue :((14:54
cfhowlettali_, no.  reinstall14:54
TJ-kasper: The firmware you mentioned earlier is part of the "linux-firmware" package which should already be installed:   "dpkg -S iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode" ==> "linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode"14:54

=== __NiC is now known as _NiC
TJ-kasper: The common issue is that the hp-wmi kernel module calls the ACPI functions declared by the HP BIOS to enable the radio, but because the ACPI implementation has detected Linux, it doesn't do the same thing as when it detects Windows, and only toggles the soft block not the hard block15:10

kaspergo for 192.168.x.x15:13
kasperTJ-, I will...but if that is the case shouldn't it be blocked in win7 as well?15:14
TJ-kasper: if that message means there BIOS Setup controls the radio state, then it will be a simple fix15:14
POQDavidWill you guys count this http://www.debuntu.org/series/iptables-how-to-share-your-internet-connection/ as the best way to setup Iptables15:14
TJ-kasper: In theory, but as I said, the ACPI DSDT is detecting Linux ... I doubt you'll find anything to be honest but I'd rather be sure and avoid wasting time15:14
POQDavidkasper: some times you can try to turn on the wifi on win then on ubuntu15:15
POQDavidkasper: i had similar problem in one of my pc15:15

kasperthat it's a common issue15:24
kasperbut i didn't switch it off...it was already off15:25
TJ-kasper: it can, but generally the wifi drivers have a co-exist functionality15:25
TJ-kasper: e.g. if you do "modinfo iwlwifi" you'll see it has the parameter "parm:           bt_coex_active:enable wifi/bt co-exist (default: enable) (bool)"15:25
kasperso one will not work without the other?15:26
TJ-kasper: usually they can work independently, but it depends on whether the functions are combined in one chipset or in separate chipsets15:27
kasperTJ-, BT is switched on now but i still can't switch on wifi in ubuntu...BUT the status light of the physical button is now turning blue rather then staying orange the whole time15:28

linelevel1Hi, I'm having a strange issue with wifi: I see all the available wireless networks, but when I try to connect to any of them (yes, I've tried several), it prompts me for the password, then fails to connect after I've typed the correct password. Any suggestions for how I can troubleshoot this?15:48
ZythyrTJ-: Is it possible to do it with DD? Because I want to copy the partition table also15:48

evonHello can anyone know of a linux-based date recovery program that preserves file names when it recovers files?15:53
mokmeisterevon: dd?15:53
TJ-evon: filenames can only be recovered if the directory structures are intact15:53
bishopsboys and girls I really need your help, I have folders in my trash folder that don't delete. Everytime I try the system freezes. I can't move them either. These folders were in my home folder and I'm not sure why, they appeared this morning there.15:54
=== kasper is now known as Kasper_mac
=== kasper_ is now known as kasper_ubuntu
evonmokmeister, Thanks, my understanding is that ddrescue only copies whole partitions and doesn't actually recover files like say photorec does.  I'm willing to be corrected though15:56
TJ-evon: correct; ddrescue recovers blocks15:57
TJ-evon: however, if those blocks include an intact directory chain, the filenames will be recovered15:57
TJ-kasper_ubuntu: any more progress with the 'tar' command?15:57
kasper_ubuntuTJ-, nope error after error15:58
evonTJ, I've never used DD so can you explain a little of the recovery process for me?15:58
kasper_ubuntuTJ-, what is a basic harmless tar command so i can try that?15:58
TJ-evon: 'ddrescue' is *not* 'dd' - see "apt-cache show gddrescue"15:59
TJ-kasper_ubuntu: try it as the regular user with sudo: "cd $HOME; tar -C /tmp -xzf $HOME/hp-wmi-dkms.tar.gz" then "ls -l /tmp/hp*" should show "hp-wmi.c"16:00
evonTJ, my apologies for the confusion.  What does DD stand for so I can look it up online?16:00
mokmeisterevon: as TJ kust pointed out, dd and ddrescue are different16:00
mokmeisterdd is a copy / convert file command line tool16:01
TJ-evon: dd == 'data definition'16:01
mokmeisterddrescue is more of a recovery tool16:02
TJ-evon: dd will fail if there are any I/O errors. ddrescue will do its best to work around I/O errors and recover everything it can16:02
bishopsHI all, I have folders in my trash folder that don't delete. Everytime I try the system freezes. I can't move them either. These folders were in my home folder and I'm not sure why, they appeared this morning there.16:03
ioriabishops, ls -al /home/<your_user>/.local/share/Trash/files ?16:04
TJ-evon: Example. a block device with a single sector I/O error 1/2 way through. 'dd' will fail at that point. 'ddrescue' will see the I/O error, then simply seek further into the device and try there. It will track the ranges it has failed on and keep working around them16:04
evonmokmeister, TJ, Maybe if I described the problem you could help me decide what to use.  I think it might just be a lost partition but for some reason, Windows cannot read the drive at all, while Linux cannot.  I also can't mount the partition in question although it is listed in Gparted. Photorec is able to recover the files but I want to preserve the file names (which photorec does not).16:04
TJ-evon: Are there any I/O errors reported for that device in "/var/log/kern.log" ?16:05
kasper_ubuntuTJ-,  ls: cannot access /tmp/hp*: No such file or directory16:05

bishopsioria: it says no such file or directory16:06
MonkeyDustkasper_ubuntu  did it xork with a cable connection? that needs no configuration16:06
evonTJ, mokmeister, I am also unclear on what an IO error is and how to determine if there is one.16:06
TJ-kasper_ubuntu: ahhh... well if tar is failing then the 'ls /tmp/hp*' won't find any files16:07
evonTJ, I will have to check.  I'm not too sure.16:07
TJ-evon: the log file will report "I/O error"16:07
kasper_ubuntuTJ-, yeah it was the same error as before but tried anyway16:07

kasper_ubuntuis there a way to recheck/reinstall/repair tar?16:07

TJ-kasper_ubuntu: the command is "sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT | dd of=/tmp/DSDT.bin" then upload "/tmp/DSDT.bin"16:33
TJ-kasper_ubuntu: usually the LED attached to the webcam cannot be controlled independently, so it tells when the camera is active.16:34
alexbucurestiwhat cpu,ram is neccesary for a ftp server?16:34
kasper_ubuntuTJ-, yes... but there is a virus that deactivates the LED16:35
kasper_ubuntulike there is anti theft software that deactivates the LED and takes a pic of the thief16:35
kasper_ubuntuso it can be done...no idea how...but it can be done apparently16:35
TJ-kasper_ubuntu: controlling the LED is *very* model and chipset specific. It would have to be a targeted attack16:35

Greek0how is it determined what services are restarted when a package is upgraded? what program is responsible for that?16:57
EriC^^Greek0: i think it's in the post-install script of the package16:58
Greek0actual problem: installation of a custom php5-auth-something package (with an .so) triggers an apache reload, i want apache restart (so the .so is reloaded)16:58
Greek0EriC^^: I checked that first, the postinst only touched the /etc/cron.d/php5... file16:58
Greek0it doesn't actively restart anything. there's a more general mechanism going on16:59
EriC^^Greek0: did you check /var/lib/dpkg/info/php5-auth....postinst ?16:59
Greek0EriC^^: I dpkg-deb -e'd the package17:00
EriC^^Greek0: why do you want that? i mean can't you just restart it manually?17:00
Greek0EriC^^: last month's events: package was manually deployed to production server, apt-get printed a "reloading apache.... [OK]" line. operator though "cool, no need to restart again". The fixed library was not live in production17:02

TJ-Kasper_mac: I didn't see mention of that in the user guide earlier17:10
Kasper_macthe stupid thing is...when i plug in a cable windows keep showing i am connected to a wireless network17:10
Kasper_macthat's why i never thought of it17:11
TJ-Kasper_mac: right... I had been about to give you a kernel command-line option to try, since we may as well make the BIOS/ACPI think the OS is Windows and behave the same way it does for Windows.17:11
Kasper_macTJ-, but i don't think windows is showing it right17:12
mahbubhello i am a new user i want to learn command line so which book should i follow?17:12
Kasper_maci think the same happens in windows...it just can't handle it17:12
TJ-Kasper_mac: do you know how to get to the GRUB boot-manager menu at start-up? Holding down the Shift key when you see the BIOS Power On Self Test (POST) or splash screen, until the boot manager menu is displayed?17:12
PanVHello. Sorry for my raging before with cursing and stuff. But now its urgent since I only got 7 percent battery. I deleted xorg for reasons.. to get prop drivers. How to get them back If I got amd radeon? << Urgent17:13

OerHeksPanhowto remove ati fglrx drivers > http://askubuntu.com/a/6831217:13
PanVoerherks, already done17:14
TJ-Kasper_mac: well, that may be because you have the UEFI firmware configured to do Fastboot for Windows (which is a fancy name for Windows Hibernate)17:14
PanVandleft with no drivers17:14
PanVNow ima at recovery mode17:14
PanVI just need to isntall xorg17:14
Kasper_macTJ-, really?17:14
mahbubhey everyone whats up i want to learn command line so which book should i follow?17:14
Kasper_maci didn't do that17:14
TJ-Kasper_mac: in Windows, you can disable that by using the power shutdown menu to choose full shutdown instead of fastboot17:14
PanVPlease, I got 6%, ţ percent And device will close..17:14
OerHeksPanV, and did the steps after the install ?17:14
Kasper_macTJ-, i never use hibernate17:15
PanVoerherks, i just want the apt-get install xorg thingy17:15
OerHeksPanV, plugin the adaptor, don't hurry us.17:15
TJ-Kasper_mac: is it Windows 8?17:15
Kasper_macTJ-, i use either reboot or shutdown...17:15
Kasper_macit's 717:15
PanVKk wait comin'17:15
OerHeks<PanV> oerherks, i just want the apt-get install xorg thingy " you need to do the steps after that too, is that so hard ?sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg17:16
TJ-Kasper_mac: Oh OK... then it may only be the BIOS Setup setting for Fastboot that needs disabling. When enabled it doesn't bother looking for alternate boot devices or showing the boot menu it just boots the default OS, which will be Windows.17:16
mahbubhey any one suggest me the best book of command line?17:16
Kasper_macTJ-, it shows it now...but i can only get to ubuntu by pressing esc twice after getting an error17:17
PanVoerHerks, waht do I need to do? Sorry I am not patient or anything17:18
PanVNetworking enabled, pressed root on recoveru17:19
Kasper_macTJ-, thanks a lot man!17:19
Kasper_macand again i am a bloody fool...i have worked on a second line helpdesk of an ISP for almost a year...this was such a bad trouble shoot :(17:19
PanVOerHerks, it wont let me do that command.17:19
OerHeksPanv just boot nornal, login with ctrl alt F2, and do those steps17:20
TJ-Kasper_mac: OK. if you can get to the GRUB menu, highlight the Ubuntu entry, press "E" to edit it. Now navigate to the line beginning "linux ..." move the cursor to the end of that line, and add: acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="windows 2009"   then press Ctrl+X or F10 to boot with that option. With luck the system will behave the same way as it does with Windows. If that does provide useful improvements those parameters can be added permanently to "/etc/default/grub" and its17:21
TJ- "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX" setting, followed by "update-grub"17:21

iorianeredsenvy, vivid or trusty ?17:36
TJ-Kasper_mac: if it is optional that is fine; however the dmesg logs you reported showed both devices available so it can't be correct that they are mutually exclusive: "e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 2.3.2-k"  and "iwlwifi 0000:43:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN, REV=0x74"17:37
Kasper_macTJ-, it is very weird i agree...i switched the option off now like in the thread i posted17:38
Kasper_machowever in ubuntu now i don't have a mouse cursor :D17:38
TJ-Kasper_mac: there is sometimes a power-saving feature whereby the Ethernet PHY can be turned off to save power when WiFi is enabled. Maybe that is the control you have in the BIOS, so it toggles the wifi radio and ethernet PHY17:38

sentrizHi, I've got a cifs mount in /etc/fstab. It mounts with drwxr-xr-x, but I would like full write permissions. Here is the line: http://pastebin.com/x6QVFmRE - does anyone know how this is possible? I've also got "mount -a" in /etc/rc.local18:04
MattTSTJ-: Really doesn't seem that simple. GRUB just goes to prompt18:06
TJ-MattTS: "rescue >" or "grub:" ?18:06
MattTSIt went to grub: originally, then I tried boot-repair from the USB media I created and then it started going to rescure18:07
TJ-MattTS: I don't trust bootrepair - when it messes up it tend to do it spectacularly!18:08
TJ-MattTS: at the 'rescue' prompt what does 'set' report, if anything, for "prefix" and "root"18:08
MattTSI noticed a /efi/ folder on my secondary SSD which is NTFS. That drive shouldn't have been touched18:08
MattTSunder grub: it was reporting prefix as (hd3,gpt2)/boot/grub and root as (hd3,gpt2)18:09
MattTSunder rescue I can't remember18:09
TJ-MattTS: When using UEFI, the firmware uses a *single* drive to store the EFI System Partition (ESP), which must be a FAT12/16/32 file-system and is usually between 256-512MiB. Within that file-system each bootloader+OS gets a directory under /EFI/18:10
Moheycannot find resource script /root/.set/meta config18:11
MattTSThere was /EFI/ stuff on sdb2 which is where I believe it should have been but also stuff on sda18:11
MattTSTrying to reinstall 14.04 now with sdb set as the boot drive18:12
MattTSBefore I let it set its own thing18:12
TJ-MattTS: so, with a dualboot you'll see "/EFI/Windows/" and "/EFI/ubuntu/"18:12
MattTSYeah, in the grub prefix dir there was /EFI/ubuntu and /EFI/Microsoft (as well as /EFI/Boot)18:13
Mohey"cannot find resource script /root/.set/meta config" anyone have a solution ?18:14
TJ-MattTS: if you have ESP's on both devices, the UEFI boot manager (in the motherboard firmware) should store the correct path to the bootloader (<DEVICE>/EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi) with the 'ubuntu' menu entry18:14
MattTSI saw 2 ubuntu entries in the motherboard boot manager, neither worked though18:15
MattTSBoth went to grub prompt and then rescue18:15
TJ-MattTS: from an ubuntu UEFI boot (e.g. Live ISO) you can manually remove those using "efibootmgr"18:15
=== sins-_s is now known as sins-
TJ-MattTS: then you can use 'grub-install' to reinstall including using efibootmgr to add a correct entry to the UEFI boot manager menu18:16
sentrizshould I ask in #linux instead?18:16

=== Corey84 is now known as linux-modder
TJ-MattTS: We can get you in from the grub prompt if you want to18:20
EriC^^that sounds like a good idea ^18:20
MattTSTJ-: If you can, that'd be great. I tried a few things without any luck before but I didn't really know what I was doing18:21
TJ-The advantage of using the GRUB shell is we can see exactly what is wrong18:21
TJ-MattTS: OK, let's start with checking the values of 'root' and 'prefix' - type "set" and tell us what they are18:22
MattTSprefix = (hd3,gpt2)/boot/grub18:22
MattTSand root = hd3,gpt218:22
TJ-MattTS: OK, I think I see the issue already - hd3 ... how many drives are connected?18:22
MattTSThere's 3 internal drives and a USB external drive + USB stick18:23
MattTSso 518:23
TJ-MattTS: This is going to get interesting... prepare for a learning curve :)18:23
MattTS(ssd, ssd and hdd)18:23
TJ-MattTS: use the "ls" (LiSt) command to get a list of the available devices and partitions... if you can bear it, please copy that info here because it is vital for us to know what GRUB is seeing18:24

MattTSthere's /efi/ubuntu/ where grub.cfg is18:28
jeffreylevesquehow can i check if an event is emitted. one maybe defined from a upstart script?18:28
TJ-MattTS: if you do "ls (hd3,gpt2)/efi" do you see "windows" and "ubuntu" directories, or nothing at all?18:28
MattTSI see Microsoft, Boot and ubuntu18:29
TJ-MattTS: OK, so the problem is gpt2 is the EFI SP, but it should be the file-system containing the OS's /boot/grub/18:29
BlowbaltI don't know why I just disconnected randomly, but anyway...18:29
TJ-MattTS: So now you search for that using "ls (hd3, gptX)/" replacing X with 1-518:30
BlowbaltHas anyone else experienced random crashes in unity in 15.04? I have an HP laptop (dm1) and X occasionally just quits out to a blank terminal login screen18:30
TJ-MattTS: if Ubuntu was installed with a separate file-system for /boot/ you'll see a grub/ directory.18:30
Jordan_UTJ-: You can also find any GNU/Linux root filesystem with "search --file /etc/fstab".18:30
Blowbaltit almost always happens when I'm switching desktops or launching a terminal18:30
TJ-Jordan_U: good point... I'm too used to do everything myself :)18:31
Blowbalt.xsession-errors shows a lot of "Respawning too fast" messages, but i'm not sure whether they're connected or not18:31
MattTSTJ-: gpt1,3,4,5 are all unknown filesystems for grub18:32
MattTSonly 2 is FAT18:32
MattTSbut no /grub18:32
MattTSor /boot18:32
TJ-MattTS: so as Jordan_U points out you can also do "search --file normal.mod"18:32
=== offsec is now known as Guest17055
TJ-MattTS: that is interesting. Do you know which file-system types you used when Ubuntu was installed. The default is ext3 or ext4, which grub should have built-in to its grubx64.efi18:33
Jordan_UTJ-: No, you need an absolute path and we want to find the root fs (which is also the filesystem containing /boot/ in MattTS' case).18:33

TJ-MattTS: the main issue is, the device with Linux on is not being seen by GRUB!18:48
TJ-MattTS: is that drive on a some other disk controller that UEFI has no driver for?18:48
MattTSI believe the Linux drive is on a different SATA controller18:48
TJ-MattTS: aha! now we're getting somewhere18:48
Guest17055hardware issue o.O18:49
Jordan_UMattTS: TJ-: Which means that your boot firmware doesn't support that SATA controller (or at least doesn't support using two controllers at once).18:49
TJ-MattTS: it is possible that drive cannot be used for the bootloader, *if* the UEFI has no driver for it18:49
EriC^^he did mention "(hd4) error: failure reading sector 0xfc from 'hd4'" earlier18:49
EriC^^in case that helps18:49
TJ-EriC^^: Yes, that's where I think the missing partitions are18:49
TJ-MattTS: try "lspci"18:50
MattTScan't find the command18:50
MattTSin grub18:50
TJ-MattTS: ok, you'd need the grub root device available so it could insmod that command18:51
TJ-MattTS: I was hoping we'd see an 'unknown device' reported, which would likely be the offending controller18:51
Guest17055guys can i access the root account on vivid vervet ?!18:51
teward!root | Guest1705518:51
ubottuGuest17055: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo18:51
TJ-MattTS: there is one thing we haven't tried. Try "nativedisk" then "ls" again18:52
MattTSHmm, I can check the firmware options for the SATA controller18:52
MattTScan't find nativedisk18:52
Guest17055wow that was fast! thanks18:52
TJ-MattTS: Grrr, another module that isn't included in the core image, grrr!18:52
ioriagrub shell has nothing18:53
TJ-ioria: it depends on what is built-in to the core. I configure GRUB to always include useful debug modules18:54
anonchaoshello ive been trying to figure out how to use rhash and no luck im shelled in a directory and i want to has all files in that directory like i did with csv but i cant figure it out18:54
TJ-MattTS: reboot, use Live ISO, "Try  Ubuntu"18:54
MattTSodd, I typed exit and it started to boot windows. Before it went back to Firmware bootmanager18:55
TJ-MattTS: the FW boot manager just started the Windows entry quickly18:55
MattTSIn the firmware settings now18:56
TJ-MattTS: the UEFI boot manager has a configuration option BootOrder which controls the boot sequence18:56
=== Guest17055 is now known as h4x0r
MattTSNow that I not I think the 1TB internal drive isn't listed there18:56
TJ-MattTS: that confirms the issue18:57
h4x0rlong convo for grub issue i must admit18:57
TJ-MattTS: you'll need a separate partition of about 512MiB on one of the drives the FW can see, for the /boot/ mountpoint18:57
MattTSI have the OPROM for the Marvell storage controller disabled and enabled for the JMB storage controller18:58
TJ-MattTS: is the missing drive on the Marvell controller? if so, enable the Option ROM18:58
MattTSTJ-: possibly, trying it now18:58
MattTSOkay, done that and get an extra screen at boot and the 1TB internal drive is listed now18:59
TJ-MattTS: I believe GRUB will find its root now19:00
MattTSI've had this machine 4+ years now, I obviously decided I didn't want the extra screen at boot so I disabled the OPROM without thinking of the repercussions19:00
TJ-MattTS: optimisations always bites you this way :)19:01
MattTSSo, just try and boot into GRUB?19:01
LopeHow can I install Ubuntu on a laptop with Full disk encryption?19:01
LopeDoes the Ubuntu installer have an option for it?19:02
MonkeyDustLope  the installer asks for home encryption, not sure about 'full' encryption, tho19:02
EriC^^Lope: no, you can move /boot into the encrypted partition and adjust grub after installing19:02
MattTS Yeah, booted into GRUB and can select Windows or Ubuntu now19:02
ObrienDaveLope, why would you want to do something so risky?19:03
ObrienDaveencrypt a directory, put sensitive things there19:03

MattTSThanks a lot guys. It seems so obvious now19:04
MattTSioria: Yes, thanks. Just booted to ubuntu login19:04
MattTSNot tested Windows yet but it worked fine before19:05
ioriaMattTS, make some test... shutdown, reboot ... just to be sure19:05
MattTSTesting that now19:05
ObrienDaveLope, if you encrypt the entire drive and ONE bit gets corrupted, you LOSE the contents of the ENTIRE drive19:06
MattTSWindows seems to be booting fine19:07
MattTSRebooted once before and got distracted and it booted to Ubuntu again19:07
ioriaMattTS, do you have an adapter card ?19:09
MattTSNah, just motherboard (with 2 SATA controllers)19:10
ioriaMattTS, ok19:11
brainwashLope: since 14.04 the installer should offer a checkbox for FDE19:11

diphtherialhey, i'm attempting to format and partition a drive that's ~1TB, but for some reason fdisk sees it as just being ~200GB20:13
burrito_filezilla just upped and stopped working20:13
diphtherial(i'm using the server edition of ubuntu 14.04, fwiw)20:13
diphtherialany idea how i can reconfigure the drive to be the full 1TB?20:13
diphtherialis there a special partition type i need to use?20:13
insominiahello friends !!!20:14
EriC^^diphtherial: try sudo parted -l , how big does it say it is?20:14
diphtherialEriC^^: 'Error: unrecognized disk label'20:15
diphtherialhere's the output from fdisk, by the way: https://dpaste.de/HLCJ20:15
diphtherialfor some background, it's a volume that i provisioned on this cloud service my university uses. it seems that the volumes come unformatted by default, without so much as a partition table20:16
diphtherialmaybe DOS partition tables can't handle volumes larger than 2GB?20:16
EriC^^msdos limit for partitions is 2tb20:16
diphtherialwell, it's called redcloud; i'm not sure what software they're using20:17

Guest55773use tails20:22
diphtherialwell, the cloud management site reports that the volume should be 1000GB20:22
Guest55773dont shoot me :))20:22
diphtherialcan't figure out why every time i try to create a DOS partition table on the thing it reports only 214GB20:22
diphtherial(i apologize for this not being strictly an ubuntu issue)20:22
tgm4883diphtherial: did you pastebin the command output requested earlier20:24
diphtherialtgm4883: you're referring to the parted output? i mentioned what it was, but sure, i'll paste it as well20:24
Guest55773 anyone succeed in installing pidgin on kali ?20:25
diphtherialthis is after using fdisk to write a DOS partition table, fwiw20:25
diphtheriali didn't see an option in fdisk to return it to its virginal state20:25
MonkeyDustGuest55773  ask in a kali channel, it's ot supported here20:25
Guest55773ok sorry20:25
tgm4883diphtherial: you can delete teh partition in fdisk then write that to disk20:26
ubottuUbuntu channels can only provide support for Ubuntu itself, as other distributions and derivatives have repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mint), Kali Linux (#kali-linux), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)20:26
x86iacthe only channel not dead on freenode?20:26
EriC^^diphtherial: the error is for vdc, vdb shows up as 215gb in fdisk and parted20:27
MonkeyDustx86iac  this is the ubuntu support channel20:27
x86iacyea that is what it is and my statement applies20:28
diphtherialEriC^^: sorry, this is the output after having created a partition table for vdb20:34
diphtheriali'm just going to go with the 214GB size for now, i guess, until i figure it out. it's fine for what i'm doing at the moment20:35
diphtherialthanks for the help20:35
diphtherialmaybe i'll give it another shot later tonight20:35
EriC^^diphtherial: ok, np, try contacting the cloud support20:36
diphtherialthat's a good idea; they're pretty responsive, although i hate to bother them over something i could conceivably do myself (well, with help, obviously)20:36
diphtherialanyhow, thanks again20:36

Abehello, A school donated me 3 old computers I think I take them to recycling before they land on the dump... Is there any use for old Pc hardware like the HDD's Motherboards or Power supply?21:14
mgolischhow old are they?21:14
suyashi was installing ubuntu 14.04 lts and during installation i installed it on external drive connected to my laptop, for the boot loader i selected external drive but it installed on internal hardrive. and now it ubuntu option shows up in boot menu even if i dont have my external hdd connected. is there any way to remove ubuntu from boot menu list21:15
AbeI dont know very old probably 10 years they have like pentium 4 with 512 MB ram on it21:15
compdocAbe, depends on their age, but ppl usually give away computers when they are too slow to be useful21:15
TJ-Abe pentium 4's can be quite useful; it depends on what you might want to do with them21:16
AbeNobody would want to use them their is still Windows XP Pentium 4 on it... I didn't turn them on though21:16
AEL-HI did command "grep -ir 'mysearch' * > mytext.txt"21:17
AEL-HI understand this command will take a while as it will check the whole drive -- however is there a way I can check its progress? Or that I can be sure it has not hit a wall. The command has taken alot longer than expected21:17
Abecompdoc: CD drive's Floppy drive's Hard drives are plenty in there... I dont actually have a use for them besides recycle them21:17
Abemaybe I could use the old HDD's for something?21:18
TJ-AEL-H: which directory did you start grep from?21:18
tahr301791Hi, how can I boot ubuntu live usb on a password-protected bios ?21:18
compdocAbe, check the drive's SMART info to see if they are any good or not, but old hard drives are slow21:18
Abethat doesn't matter I still could store data on them.. or using it for a Raid system Idk?21:19
suyashis there any possible way to remove ubuntu listing from efi boot menu21:19
TJ-Abe: if there are any 5 1/4 inch floppy drives, they can be quite valuable for people needing to rescue data from old back-up media21:19
=== Kurisu is now known as Kurisumasu

TJ-suyash: yes, with 'efibootmgr'21:19
AbeTJ-: who is still using floppy drives?21:20
suyashTJ: i tried efibootmgr but it still appears in boot menu21:20
AEL-HTJ- : I mounted an external drive (about 600GB) to a mountpoint /mountpoint/, this is the directory from which I used grep. So it should be checking around 600 gigs21:20
TJ-Abe: forensics, data retrieval specialists21:20
suyashTJ: i couldnt find efi/ubuntu to remove it21:21
AEL-HTF- : It has been running around 9 hours...21:21
TJ-AEL-H: ouch! well, you can use 'top' to check if the grep process is actually still working, or 'iotop' to check the I/O read rate21:21
TJ-suyash: you'd need to ensure the PC boots in UEFI mode in order for the EFI file system and variables to be available. Check manually for "ls /sys/firmware/efi/efi_vars/" I think it is21:22
Abetheir must be a use for the old hdd's I think ? what would you guys suggest I should do. What are with the Pc cases?? should I move to offtopic?21:23
mgolischits just a partition isnt it?21:23
mgolischmount it and remove the grub file(s)21:23
TJ-mgolisch: that won't remove ubuntu from the boot manager menu21:24
suyashTJ: No such file or directory21:25
=== andrewjs18- is now known as andrewjs18
TJ-suyash: I might have the last component of the path wrong, so look 1 directory higher, but if you can't see the efi-vars under /sys/firmware/efi/ it is likely the PC booted in legacy mode21:25
suyashTJ: i am sorry, i forget to explain you that i have booted into ubuntu using live usb because i uninstalled grub while attempting to remove listing from boot menu21:27
TJ-suyash: don't worry, I'd already guessed that. The Live ISO can boot in UEFI or Legacy mode, and the mode used is controlled by the firmware boot menu. To make it worse, the menu it offers sometimes doesn't make it clear which entry is UEFI and which is Legacy21:28
AEL-HTJ- : Does 400K/s sound pretty slow to you for a typical harddrive? (obv not SSD haha)21:28
TJ-AEL-H: if the heads are seeking all over the disk that wouldn't surprise me. You'll only get multi-megabyte speeds when the files are large and/or contiguous21:29
suyashTJ: any idea what to do in my case?21:30
TJ-suyash: reboot, bring up the firmware boot manager menu, ensure you can identify the UEFI boot entry for the USB (you may need to scroll the list down to entries which are off-screen)21:30
TJ-suyash: sometimes it is so hard to tell you just have to try both entries ")21:31
suyashi can identify the UEFI boot enty for the live usb. the first option is Ubuntu, second option is Windows Boot Manager and third option is EFI USB Device (SanDisk USB Ultra)21:37
TJ-suyash: so the last one will be it by the sound of it21:37
suyashso i am trying to remove the Ubuntu entry not the efi usb device. the efi usb device option goes away if i remove the usb drive.21:38
ArvidHello, So I am trying to setup up ssh keys following this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-ssh-keys--2 however after I have done ssh-copy-id to the remote and entered my password, and then tried to ssh to the server I am not getting asked for my passphrase instead just my normal user password for the server. How can i debug this? ssh -vvv just tells me that the id_rsa was ssent but then it just moves21:39
Arvidon to password as auth method.21:39
TJ-suyash: I know. But you need to boot into the USB in UEFI mode to use the efibootmgr tool to remove the orphaned 'ubuntu' entry from the motherboard's non-volatile RAM21:40
TJ-suyash: that's why I asked earlier to identify if the system was in UEFI mode, because without it you cannot delete that orphaned entry21:41
zacwallsI am having this really weird desktop glitch http://imgur.com/UZVrNi5 what should I do to fix it?21:41

ArvidIs this the right place for my question or does anyone have any tips on where I can get help with ssh auth to a ubuntu server?21:42
TJ-suyash: You tried what? deleting the entry using 'efibootmgr' ?21:42
MonkeyDustArvid  ask away, but keep your question in one line21:43
TJ-suyash: aahh, then maybe you have one of the many UEFI firmwares with bugs that prevents variable deletion21:43
TJ-suyash: what is the make/model of the PC, or the motherboard?21:43
suyashTJ: its Lenovo Y50-7021:43
ArvidMonkeyDust: I did that, or did you mean that my question was to long?21:44
TJ-suyash: a few months back I helped a user with an Ideapad, it turns out there is a known Lenovo firmware bug that causes EFI variable's to not be deleted. There were updated BIOSs issued for many models. First thing is to ensure the PC has the latest firmware version21:45
MonkeyDustArvid  hit the up key to repeat your question, every 15 minutes or so, until someone enters who can help21:45
suyashTJ: i guess i have the latest firmware version21:46
TJ-Arvid: that guide doesn't specify how to configure the sshd on the server to use certificates; have you done that step?21:46
TJ-suyash: best to check, with this being a known issue with Lenovo21:47
TJ-suyash: the user I helped couldn't even get the firmware upgrade to work due to this bug... eventually they found a way via Windows 7 to sneak it in, but it took a week to figure out21:47
ArvidTJ-: no, but according to the owner it should be configured anyway I can check? Or do you have a guide I can follow?21:48
TJ-suyash: I've found the Lenovo advisory: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/uefi_variable_reclaim21:49
TJ-Arvid: On the client, with 'ssh -vvv' you shuld see the server offer "debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive"21:51
TJ-Arvid: if you don't see 'publickey' then the server isn't configured for it. If you do, then look at the earlier debug messages to ensure your local ssh client is picking the correct key file21:52
TJ-Arvid: a fw lines after that message you should see something like: "debug1: Offering RSA public key: /home/$USER/.ssh/id_rsa"21:52
suyashTJ: the link you provided says lenovo y50-70 is also affected.21:53
TJ-suyash: I thought it was, so see about doing a firmware upgrade21:53
ArvidTJ-: yes that is right but after that it just moves on to id_dsa, which I don't have and then goes for the next authentication method21:53
ArvidTJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12195303/21:54
TJ-Arvid: That means the server didn't accept the key, obviously. So, log-in using password then check the access permissions to the ssh directory and files: "ls -al ~/.ssh/"21:54
ArvidTj-: -rw------- 1 arvid arvid  406 Aug 25 23:22 authorized_keys21:55
Arvidwhich I thought was correct?21:55
suyashTJ: i will try to upgrade the firmware and i will provide further updates if updating firmware fixes my issue.21:55
TJ-Arvid: where's the id_rsa.pub? I thought you'd done ssh-copy -id ?21:55
TJ-suyash: good luck with that; it was a hard task for the other user with the Ideapad21:57
ArvidTJ-: ehm I did, ssh-copy-id arvid@remote, Should I try to copy it 'manually'?21:57
TJ-Arvid: the user account on the server is 'arvid' ?21:57
ArvidTJ-: yes21:57
TJ-Arvid: something went wrong then. Try it again. On the client do: "ssh-copy-id arvid@remote.host"21:58
TJ-Arvid: then try 'ssh -vvv arvid@remote.host"21:58
made2obeyHello All / all21:59
ArvidTJ-: should I delete the old authorization file?21:59
TJ-Arvid: not right now, it won't hurt. Let's not delete anything until we have a working method21:59
ArvidTJ-: I get prompted by password and no passphrase when I do the ssh -vvv step, http://paste.ubuntu.com/12195331/22:01

daniel72-72Hi! I have Ubuntu 14.10 and I keep getting a notificatin that I will have connections issues if I don't update to the 15 version. Does the 15 take too much on my hardware? Can't I keep this one?22:04
TJ-Arvid: OK, that looks correct22:04
TJ-Arvid: OK, if you've never added a key (except this one) it is safe to delete authorized_keys and start all over again22:05
TJ-Arvid: do you have sudo access on this remote server?22:05
ArvidTJ-: nope:/22:05
TJ-Arvid: because I think the sysadmin needs to look at "/var/log/auth.log" to find out why the sshd is not accepting the public key22:06
ArvidTJ-: delete .ssh or just authorized_keys?22:06
TJ-Arvid: just the authorized_keys file22:06
ArvidTJ-: I'll try to get it from him on Skype22:06
TJ-Arvid: one cause can be if the server is configured to accept ciphers that the client can't do22:07
TJ-Arvid: if you can show me the entire ssh -vvv log that would help22:07
ArvidTJ-: sure, but if the auth.log would help alot I could always comeback tomorrow:)22:08
TJ-Arvid: another possible cause - incompatible key sizes. Your key might be smaller than the server will accept as a minimum22:08
TJ-Arvid: the auth.log is for the sysadmin to look at, not me :)22:08
ArvidTJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12195534/22:09
TJ-Arvid the version of ssh you are using is quite old; what Ubuntu release is it?22:11
TJ-Arvid "cat /etc/issue"22:11
ArvidTJ-: Ubuntu 15.04 \n \l22:12
ArvidTJ-: The owner of the server is not the greatest at updating things.. So that could be something..22:13
sxclimaxHi folks! I am in need of expert help.22:15
TJ-Arvid: the version of OpenSSH in Ubuntu 14.04 is "OpenSSH_6.6.1, OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014"... your client is showing "OpenSSH_6.2p2, OSSLShim 0.9.8r 8 Dec 2011"22:15
TJ-Arvid: and I noticed that ssh-cop-id was launched from "/usr/local/bin/" when it should be in "/usr/bin/"22:16
sxclimaxI own an ASUS UX21 Series Ultra Slim laptop. I cannot use this laptop without it plugged in. This bug is well described to that point that Linus Torvalds worked on the issue.22:16
TJ-Arvid: I suspect you have a very old version of OpenSSH installed under /usr/local/ and that is taking precedence. Tell us what "which ssh" reports22:16
sxclimaxHow do ensure this bug fix is implimented on my computer? This goes over my head: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/dbf0e4c7257f8d684ec1a3c919853464293de66e22:17
ArvidTJ-: /usr/bin/ssh22:17
TJ-Arvid: and what does "ssh -V' report?22:17
ArvidOpenSSH_6.2p2, OSSLShim 0.9.8r 8 Dec 201122:17
TJ-sxclimax: commit dbf0e4c was added in July 2012 - what release of Ubuntu are you using?22:18
ArvidTJ-: So I should update openssh on OSX locally and try again:)?22:19
TJ-Arvid: I'm on 14.04 and I see "OpenSSH_6.6.1p1 Ubuntu-2ubuntu2.3, OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014" ... if you're on Vivid 15.04 you should be seeing a later version22:19
ArvidTJ-: oh I might be confusing local and remote now22:19
TJ-Arvid: hang on, you're on OSX? I thought you said the local was Ubuntu 15.04?22:19
ArvidTJ-: which one was the version and which for?22:19
ArvidTJ-: no sorry if that was unclear, local: OSX, remote: ubuntu22:20
TJ-Arvid: Ahhhhhhh! that explains a lot :D22:20
=== marj_bax is now known as marjory
TJ-Arvid: OK... in the full -vvv pastebin were several error reports of the form "unknown mech-code" which means the version on OSX is too old, and is not correctly communicating with the server22:20
ArvidTJ-: err I'm on yosemite or are you talking about ssh version?22:22
sxclimaxTJ- I was using ubuntu 14.04 but was still having the issue. It got to the point that my hard drive corrupted today because of a sudden shutdown when the power was cord was unplugged today.22:22
sxclimaxI am currently working from a Live CD (boo...)22:22
TJ-sxclimax: that commit was introduced in kernel v3.5 so it is in 14.04, which has v3.13 or later22:22
sxclimaxWell then, my computer was having unexplained shutdowns without being plugged in -- the exact problem purported to be fixed by that commit22:23
ArvidTJ-: So I guess I should install openssh through brew to get a later version of ssh locally?22:23
TJ-Arvid: it looks like that, or build a virtual machine Ubuntu guest and work from that :)22:25
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest3601
Hpamani am wondering if anybody knows of a device file i can create to read all of computer memory /dev/mem seems to only do a little bit so i am curious if there is something with dd i can uses to dump all memory to file i know there is ways using linux c functions but i am wondeing about major and minor device numbers that would do the equivalent22:25
Hpamananybody on this irc know or familar with something22:25
Hpamanlike this22:26
ArvidTJ-: ok, thank you for all the help with the troubleshoot!22:26
TJ-sxclimax: The commit you referred to makes no mention of that problem, it is only for ensuring the PC doesn't hang when resuming from sleep22:26
=== badbodh is now known as badDick
sxclimaxTJ- Oh. I found that link following threads around the ASUS shutdown issue. Someone must have linked there in error22:26
TJ-sxclimax: what does the PC do if you only power it from battery? Does it start to boot, does it get to loading Linux. ?22:28
sxclimaxIt crashes once I log in, but makes it that far at least22:29
sxclimaxIf it is plugged in -- no problems at all22:29
TJ-sxclimax: by 'crashes' what do you mean exactly? powers off unexpectedly? writes a kernel panic to console?22:29
sxclimaxOne of two things: either the whole screen pauses and no keys or mouse movement is possible, the fan gets loud and the computer gets warm (I then have to hold the power button to shut it off); sometimes the computer immediately shuts off22:30
=== cyphase_ is now known as cyphase
TJ-OK, the first sounds like the 'halt' instruction was executed... which should be followed by a shutdown/reboot but may not be.22:32
TJ-sxclimax: are you able to log-in as the Guest user, or another new user account, or does this affect those too. This test will identify if the problem is a per-user config, or systemwide22:33
sxclimaxTJ- I haven't tried this, but I cannot test it now; my hard drive is corrupted and I am trying to recover my data22:34
sxclimaxUbuntu won't boot today22:34
TJ-sxclimax: ouch.22:34

pecanqnthe disk have three ntfs partitions.23:11
TJ-jjavaholic: is there free space following the partition?23:12
jjavaholicnot directly after there is a 6.3gb swap partition23:12
TJ-jjavaholic: so what is your intention/hope? reduce the size of the swap and give the space to the rootfs partition23:13
jjavaholicresize into unallotted space after swap partition23:13
jjavaholicI have thought about just creating a new /home partition23:14
TJ-jjavaholic: OK, that would probably be the less complicated approach. Create a new partition in the unallocated space, format it, boot in recovery mode so you're logged in as root user, mount it to say /mnt/new_home/ then 'mv /home/* /mnt/new_home/', add an entry in /etc/fstab to mount the partition to /home/ and reboot23:16
bodie_I seem to have installed two incompatible versions of a library.  I installed one from source, after I thought the other was gone.  I need some help figuring out how to clean up the situation.23:19
bodie_it looks like my linker compiled a binary using the newer version, but is using the older .so23:20
bodie_(this is after running ldconfig)23:20
TJ-bodie_: which library?23:21
bodie_TJ-, ZeroMQ 4.1.323:23
bodie_s/linker compiled/linker linked/ :)23:23
TJ-bodie_: which package though? libzmq3 ?23:23
jjavaholiccurrent /home won't have anything important in it so wouldn't it be easier to set mount point for newly formatted partition to /home and let new default folders be made23:24
bodie_TJ-, I installed it from source, and I know I made sure libzmq-dev and libzmq3 were removed23:24
bodie_I just don't know where I need to start digging to figure out where the wrong pieces are D:23:25
mcphailbodie_: for a start, have a look under /usr/local. Anything under there will not have been installed by the package manager23:25
TJ-bodie_: "ldd /path/to/binary" will tell you the paths to all the linked libraries23:26
bodie_mcphail, ok.  I think that's where the correct .so's were installed.  I have libzmq.so and libzmq.so.5 there symlinked to libzmq.so.5.0.023:27
bodie_mcphail, those are the ones I *want* to have, though23:27
TJ-jjavaholic: you still need to copy/move over the original content so it doesn't take up space that you cannot access23:27
NekoTheCatI'm having some problems with my (almost) freshly installed Ubuntu23:28
NekoTheCatSomeone pls halp ;_;23:28
TJ-jjavaholic: e.g. you have a root-fs that has /home/$USER/.config/ and other files. If you then do "mount /dev/sdaX /home/" you've got a clean home directory, and need to create the user account directories. At the same time you've just *hidden* the files in the root-fs from view, but they are still there taking up space23:28
* bodie_ mutters eldritch incantations in the direction of NekoTheCat's Ubuntu23:29
mcphailbodie_: you can set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the directory of the libraries you want to use in preference23:29
bodie_mcphail, LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/ ./go gives me the same error: `zmq4 was installed with ZeroMQ version 4.0.5, but the application links with version 4.1.3`23:31
bodie_mcphail, when I run `locate libzmq.so`, it shows files that don't exist any more23:32
bodie_hash -r didn't fix it23:32
buzzbugbodie_: history maybe23:33
bodie_but I guess those are just stale entries in the updatedb23:33
mcphailbodie_: yes, you'd need to run updatedb23:33
bodie_or whatever it's called.  yeah.  doing that now.  but that shouldn't affect what files are seen when it tries to find a shared library, should it?23:33
TJ-bodie_: that error suggests 'go' was built to link to libzmq 4.1.3 but the local version of zmq4 is 4.0.5 - so which version of zmq source did you build?23:34
mcphailbodie_: what happens if you set LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/library.so ./go23:34
bodie_TJ-, I know I built and installed 4.1.3, which is what I want.  I don't know where the .so for 4.0.5 is23:34
bodie_or why it's finding it instead23:35
TJ-bodie_: "which zmq4" maybe ?23:35
sxclimaxHey folks. I would love some help recovering my data.23:35
bodie_mcphail, same error still23:35
bodie_does that mean the .so's I'm looking at in /usr/local/lib are the old ones?23:36
mcphailbodie_: have to say I don't understand why that is failing, I'm afraid23:36
sxclimaxI am booted in a Live USB because of the following error at boot otherwise: "init: Failed to spawn friendly-recovery pre-start process: unable to getpwuid: No such file or directory"23:36
sxclimaxFirst of all, is this a fixable problem?23:37
TJ-bodie_: did you build 'go' or 'libzmq4' ?23:37
sxclimaxSecond of all, when I try to mount my home directory in my Live environment with "sudo ecryptfs-recover-private" I get empty folders called Downloads, Desktop etc. without my data there.23:37
bodie_TJ-, both23:38
TJ-sxclimax: whilst you are in the Live ISO can you capture and upload the ACPI tables for the bug report?23:38
bodie_"go" is a binary that is linked with libzmq423:38
sxclimaxTJ- without instructions on how to do that, I'm not sure I can23:38
TJ-bodie_: so what does "ldd  ./go" report as the paths for the libzmq SOs?23:38
mcphailbodie_: perhaps it pulled the 4.0.5 header files, but linked against 4.1.323:39
TJ-sxclimax: I can give you the instructions ")23:39
bodie_libzmq.so.5 => /usr/local/lib/libzmq.so.523:39
bodie_so I guess that's the old one?23:39
bodie_mcphail, I think so, I'm just trying to figure out why and how to clean up the mess >_<23:40
mcphailbodie_: sounds like a nightmare. I'm off to sleep so good luck with it all23:41

gp5sthello. on ubuntu 14.04.3, installing haproxy adds the file /etc/rsyslog.d/49-haproxy.conf (contents: http://dpaste.com/39TQEPJ) on my one server this all works fine and dandy and rsyslog creates the appropriate socket, but on this one it's not and i'm having a heck of a time figuring out why23:42
sxclimaxTJ- I have the output file but I'm not clear on where I'm supposed to attach the file23:43
TJ-sxclimax: use a web browser to visit the bug report page that ubottu just showed, log-in, and attach the report. If you don't have a launchpad account then instead put the file contents into a pastebin and I'll copy it to the bug report. You can pastebin it using "sudo apt-get install pastebinit" and then "pastebinit /tmp/UX21.acpidump.txt"23:46
TJ-sxclimax: also, when you get chance, I strongly recommend you read the additional comments I've added to that bug report. There are several reports from users that say disconnecting and reconnecting the battery permanently fixes the issue for them.23:47
linuxnewbie22Hey, I'm wondering how I should go about updating the bios for my dell computer. I downloaded the driver off dell's website, however my attempt at using a bootable freedos usb didn't succeed. What's the easiest way to do it for a noob like me?23:47
bodie_welp, I cleaned out the old .so's, rebuilt and reinstalled the package, confirmed they were timestamped right, rebuilt the executable, and it's still giving me the same error.  I can only conclude that I am insane and will now take up a new line of work.  lol23:48
TJ-linuxnewbie22: how did you create the FreeDos bootable?23:48
sxclimaxTJ- I have tried the disconnecting the battery trick. It would fix the error for a couple of days then the same thing would recur.23:48
sxclimaxI have done it so many times now that I am afraid of ripping the cable while disconnnecting it23:48
TJ-sxclimax: really? did oyu do any suspend/resume actions during that time?23:48
linuxnewbie22Tj-: I used unetbootin. I'm using lubuntu btw.23:49
sxclimaxI use suspend as part of my normal workflow23:49
TJ-sxclimax: OK... well collecting this ACPI info is the best chance of figuring it out, since it contains code the ACPI firmware tells the OS to execute for power events.23:49
linuxnewbie22My lubuntu version is 15.0423:49
=== Corey84 is now known as linux-modder
TJ-sxclimax: OK, so that leads me to theorise that it is possible that during a suspend/resume cycle some settings are not correctly reset and lead to the problem23:50
OerHeksshould work linuxnewbie2223:50
TJ-sxclimax: if as soon as you have your PC usable again, can register for an account on launchpad and subscribe to the bug report and add log files to it, I can work on it.23:50
sxclimaxIt should be noted that this computer came with Windows 7 and the same issues of shutdowns while unplugged would happen on occasion in that OS. I no longer have a dual-boot to test this, though23:50
sxclimaxI added the log files now23:51
TJ-sxclimax: Yes, I've read of that. That's why I think it is mainly a firmware issue where some devices aren't being reset correctly There are some fixes we can experiment with for those, too23:51
