Jordan_Uapb1963: Great, that means that you should get good performance from any of the Virtual Machine options.00:00
Aleeporok, i guess i'll create though. Which size is the recommended for 6gb ram?00:00
Ben646gb if you want to hibernate, maybe 4GB or so if you don't00:01
Aleeporsame size as the ram?00:01
Aleepori heard that was the double, not even 10?00:02
apb1963Jordan_U: so the theory goes... It appears to be saying that since /dev/kvm exists then acceleration can be used...  I'm not sure I agree with that assessment (devices are easily created), but I'll go back and see if I did in fact make a mistake.  Thank you00:03
apb1963daftykins: thank you as well00:04
Bashing-omAleepor: "double the ram" is old info from the days of a scarcity of ram . With your 6 Gigs, you can make swap much less .00:04
Jordan_Uapb1963: You're welcome. People don't just go around creating devices that happen to be named /dev/kvm, and random software doesn't either. Your CPU supports KVM acceleration, and that support is enabled in your boot firmware.00:05
daftykinsapb1963: ;)00:05
apb1963Jordan_U: it's probable I installed something that created the device... what I wonder is if the device was created without regard to actual abilities of the CPU.00:07
apb1963Jordan_U: if you look at the capabiilties of the CPU (i.e. the spec sheet) it doesn't have vt-d or vt-x... which is what makes me wonder.00:08
apb1963I MUST find where those crickets are hiding.00:10
apb1963Gotta be in my clothing somewhere or something.00:10
Jordan_Uapb1963: http://ark.intel.com/products/36503/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-E7500-3M-Cache-2_93-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB shows VT-X as being available (though dependant on the configuration of the rest of the hardware).00:11
apb1963Jordan_U: ? This feature may not be available on all computing systems. Please check with the system vendor to determine if your system delivers this feature, or reference the system specifications (motherboard, processor, chipset, power supply, HDD, graphics controller, memory, BIOS, drivers, virtual machine monitor-VMM, platform software, and/or operating system) for feature compatibility. Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this00:13
apb1963feature may vary depending on system configuration.00:13
daftykinsgood lord will you move on from that point and just get it working :)00:14
apb1963Jordan_U: It's a Dell Optiplex 760 for the record00:14
daftykinsvirt was possible years before VT came about00:14
OneM_Industriesapb1963: Try it. I am able to run VM's on CPUs that are not supposed to be able to run VMs, and with the VM option off.00:17
OneM_IndustriesOk, so I got my headphones connected, but now they are not showing up in sound settings.00:18

OneM_IndustriesAnyone have an idea about these headphones?00:26
reisioyou pair them?00:27
OneM_IndustriesYep, but they are not showing up in the sound settings.00:27
TJ-OneM_Industries: which Ubuntu release?00:27
OneM_Industries14.04 LTS, not sure about the sub version.00:28
daftykinscat /etc/issue ;)00:30
TJ-OneM_Industries: That's all I wanted; what kind of headset is? As in, which BT profile? AS2SP, HCF, HSP ?00:30
OneM_IndustriesUm, hold on.00:30
TJ-OneM_Industries: A2DP is for stereo audio playback, HCF/HSP are for devices with microphones as used on phones00:31
OneM_IndustriesThis has a microphone.00:32

kris27mcI need help!00:33
jackowith dhcpd, is it possible to send different bootfiles based on the MAC address?00:33
TJ-OneM_Industries: If you're using a GUI, in the Bluetooth device connection list does it show any audio sinks?00:33
TJ-OneM_Industries: as in "Audio Sink" and "HEadset Service"00:33
OneM_IndustriesYep, it is set up as a headset service.00:34
TJ-OneM_Industries: Unfortunately, the underlying Bluez libraries and tools ripped out the headset support and it still hasn't been replaced for 15.1000:35
OneM_IndustriesSo, what are my options?00:35
kris27mcI'm trying to make a bootable USB of an Android x86 port. I have the ISO but uNetBootIn only tells me to mount /dev/sdb1 to a mountpoint. I've tried just using the "dd" command but I am not sure how to properly use it for this purpose.00:36
OneM_IndustriesIt refuses to set up as an audio sink.00:36
TJ-OneM_Industries: I was caught by this regression too; took me 1/2 a day of searching to find the explanation. I'm trying to find the links again now00:36
OneM_IndustriesThank you.00:37
TJ-OneM_Industries: It should still work with the A2DP profile (audio out sink) although you may need to use PulseAudio's pavucontrol in order to reroute audio to the headset.00:37
OneM_IndustriesI have tried that, it refuses to set up as an Audio out sink.00:38
kris27mcIs there a method of mounting my USB to a mountpoint like it said or...? I apologize for my inexperience but I'm just not sure what to do in this situation00:38
kris27mcI could also use instructions on using the "dd" command to take care of this00:39
daftykinskris27mc: what's this android setup provided in? ISO?00:39
kris27mcIt's an ISO00:39
daftykinssudo dd if=/path/to/file.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=2M00:39
daftykinsreplace sdX with the letter of the drive, *not* a partition though, so not sdX1... sdX.00:40
OneM_IndustriesTJ-: If I try to use A2DP, blueman says "Device added successfully, but failed to connect."00:40
TJ-OneM_Industries: that suggests the pairing may have failed. Delete the pairing and try again00:40
OneM_IndustriesBasically, it only works in the headset profile.00:40
OneM_IndustriesOk, working on it.00:41
TJ-OneM_Industries: if you can get HCF/HSP profile working you doing better than me!00:41
OneM_IndustriesYep, it is only working in the headset service profile.00:41
OneM_IndustriesBut still not showing up in audio settings.00:42
TJ-OneM_Industries: Ahhh! I got myself inverted! HCF/HSP *wiil* workin 14.40 Trusty (which has Bluez 4.1) but won't in 15.10/Wily (Bluez 5.x)00:43
OneM_IndustriesOoh....good thing I never got bluez 5 working then.00:43
TJ-OneM_Industries: A2DP should work though, unless the Pulseaudio module isn't correctly configured. Have you ever done any manual configuration of the pulseaudio modules, or installed something like Blueman that does it for you?00:44
OneM_IndustriesI have blueman, but I am not sure how to configure pulseaudio really.00:44
kris27mcdaftykins: Thank you so much!00:45
TJ-OneM_Industries: just to confirm what I said earlier. PA v5.x release notes says Bluez v5.x only supports A2DP  see http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Notes/5.0/00:45
OneM_IndustriesHm, I have Bluez 4.101, so that should not be an issue.00:46
TJ-OneM_Industries: In the background pulseaudio loads small specialised modules, for sources and sinks. So in theory all it needs is to ensure the module-bluetooth-sink (I think it is called) is loaded00:46
TJ-OneM_Industries: exactly - as I said, I got myself inverted... I did this research several months ago when considering whether to upgrade to bluez500:46
TJ-OneM_Industries: Try "pactl list | grep blue"00:47
TJ-OneM_Industries: see mine: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12219355/00:49
OneM_IndustriesHm, odd.00:50
TJ-OneM_Industries: I saw identical output to you until I connected the headset, then that additional info00:50
OneM_IndustriesOdd, if I try to initialize any of those modules, it outputs "Failure: Module initialization failed".00:51
TJ-OneM_Industries: So, you need to have the headset connect. Does the headset support multiple devices? If so, you may need to tell it to connect to the PC rather than its default connection (usually a 'phone)00:51
OneM_IndustriesIt does support multiple devices, but the odd thing is that I just got it, so it has never had the chance to connect to something else.00:52
TJ-OneM_Industries: My device supports 2 'phones and a PC, and when connecting something other than the default I have to hold down the connect button for 3 seconds, and then I can change the connection device using the volume -/+ control00:52
OneM_Industries...and now it will not connect at all.00:53
OneM_IndustriesFine, forget it. I am just going to use the audio in jack on these things.00:57
TJ-OneM_Industries: in the detail of the PA v5 release notes it also adds "GNOME made also a decision, possibly misinformed one, to drop support for BlueZ 4 in their last release, which means that upgrading to the current GNOME version (3.10) has one of two problems depending on the BlueZ version in the system: with BlueZ 4, the GNOME UI for managing Bluetooth won't work, and with BlueZ 5 the headset audio functionality will be crippled."00:57

BlitzerHoundsay Could someone help me get rid of ubuntu? I don't know if y'all help with that but I'd really appreciate either help with it or if you could direct me to someone that can help.01:46
tv-guytgm I am not sure what to use... nothing finds it01:46
Ben64BlitzerHound: and replace with...?01:46
BlitzerHoundWell, I'm just way too used to windows, so I think I'm gonna go ahead and switch it back if that's possible.01:47
tv-guytgm so... vlc asks for a ton of stuff i do not know01:47
Ben64BlitzerHound: is there an actual reason? something you're unable to do? you can just install windows and it will work01:47
BlitzerHoundI've been trying to do it on my own but it doesn't seem to be working because of some kind of error with the partition. Not sure what that is.01:47
tgm4883tv-guy: I'm not familiar with that device, and it's been a long time since I've used PCI tuners01:48
OerHeksBlitzerHound, put in your windows cd and boot & repair01:48
BlitzerHoundNo, no real reason honestly. Just a bunch of small things - a lot of the programs I'm used to take a lot of work to install and this computer has a lot of hardware issues, so learning a new system on top of all that is kinda difficult.01:48
tgm4883tv-guy: I wonder if it just shows up as a standard /dev/video# device01:48
tv-guytgm: suggestions???01:49
tgm4883tv-guy: anything come from 'ls /dev/video*'01:49
BlitzerHoundUm, see I tried and it keeps telling me there isn't room on the partition. I don't know what that is.01:49
tv-guytgm: not 0-9 anyway01:49
tgm4883BlitzerHound: how did you get Ubuntu installed?01:49
BlitzerHoundI installed it by downloading it and then running the thing from the USB01:50
tv-guytgm: no file found01:50
Ben64BlitzerHound: the thing = ?01:50
tgm4883tv-guy: hmm01:50
BlitzerHoundI don't know what it's called. I installed it from a program that I installed onto a flash drive.01:50
daftykinsBlitzerHound: too vague.01:51
Ben64way too vague01:51
tv-guytgm: I like the sound of that humm :-)01:51
daftykinsBlitzerHound: sounds like WUBI?01:52
BlitzerHoundI looked up ubuntu, it showed me the process of installing it via USB so I downloaded that, formatted the USB drive and installed the program onto the flash drive. It said I needed to reboot then run it from the boot menu, but there wasn't a button showing up so I had to take an extra measure to create an option on boot to install from the USB.01:52
BlitzerHoundYes, that thing.01:52
BlitzerHoundSorry, I'm not good at names.01:52
Ben64boot from usb is not wubi01:53
BlitzerHoundBut wait, no that's not it. I just looked at it. Sorry, that's not what I used.01:53
TJ-tv-guy: tgm4883 I didn't see a DVR reported in dmesg; which lines did you see it at?01:53
BlitzerHoundLet me see if I can find it.01:53
BlitzerHoundI think it's called pendrive linux?01:54
daftykinsuniversal USB installer01:54
daftykinsUUI or YUMI would've put the ISO onto the flash drive01:54
tgm4883TJ-: I think it's this     04:00.0 Multimedia controller: ViXS Systems, Inc. Device 300001:54
daftykinsBlitzerHound: none of this has anything to do with why you can't reinstall Windows.01:54
BlitzerHoundI know, I'm not sure why the question came up. I tried using gpart to free up space on the 'partition' and it won't let me because the min amount of space and maximum amount of space are the same and I can't resize it.01:55
Ben64do you have a dual boot system01:56
Ben64then install windows01:56
BlitzerHoundI tried. It keeps telling me that I need to free up space on the partition.01:56
daftykinsBlitzerHound: you don't free space, you wipe the drive...01:56
Ben64then join ##windows for help installing windows01:56
tgm4883BlitzerHound: you need to ask in windows irc channel01:57
BlitzerHoundOkay, sorry. I know I seem really stupid01:57
TJ-tgm4883: From lspci yes, but that's no evidence of a driver loaded. tv-guy can you "pastebinit <(sudo lspci -nnvvvk -s 04:00.0)"01:57
BlitzerHoundThanks for trying to help me anyway. I appreciate it.01:58
tv-guyblitzer: you are going to have to back up any data on the drive you want to keep and repartition without resizing, this will destroy the data on the drive01:58
BlitzerHoundI don't have anything on here I want to keep. I'm hoping to just completely wipe everything and start over.01:58
daftykinsBlitzerHound: so nuke the disk from the booted ubuntu live session, then boot your Windows media and install. there's nothing to it.01:59
BlitzerHoundBut what if I don't have the disk?02:00
BlitzerHoundI'm trying to install it from a USB like I did with ubuntu02:00
Ben64BlitzerHound: you need to be asking windows questions in ##windows02:00
daftykinsBlitzerHound: bye bye02:01
TJ-tv-guy: I don't see any sign of drivers for that device. You can check with this command: "egrep -i '(1745.*3000|0070:d180)' /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/*"02:01
TJ-tv-guy: in case you're not aware, a kernel driver recognises a PCI device it supports by the unique Vendor:Product ID (1745:3000 or sub-system 0070"d180) and there are no drivers claiming those IDs02:03
tv-guytj: ok so how do I get the driver? as I said I am new to hardware02:05
TJ-tv-guy: As I said, there isn't one02:05
SienteHello guys02:05

TJ-jacko: with PXE the host calls the TFTP server defined by the BOOTP/DHCP server response, and the TFTP pxe configuration can be tailored to match on individual MACs if you really want, it is very flexible02:27
Sientedaftykins, what do I need to setup on Ubuntu?02:27
daftykinsSiente: essentially you're unsure of step #1 so i think you're going to struggle.02:27
=== guest81389 is now known as visitor9491
Sientenot exactly :)02:28
TJ-jacko: usually the kernel image and initrd are served over TFTP along with a kernel command-line from the PXE config... if doing a complete network boot the kernel command-line usually has a NFS root file-system specified02:28
jackoTJ-: trying to install ESXi... don't really know where to get the kernel image or initrd02:29
daftykinsso that's not ubuntu support, jacko02:29
jackodaftykins: right02:30
daftykinsand why aren't you just installing it from a flash drive and getting it done o002:30
jackodaftykins: because I have like 36 servers and I want to use kickstart02:31
Sientedaftykins, I've installed everything now :)02:31
daftykinsjacko: best find an appropriate channel then02:31
jackodaftykins: ok thanks02:31
Sientedaftykins, actually I know where are all configuration files located and so on02:32
TJ-jacko: VMWare document PXE boots02:33
daftykinsSiente: that's nice, you don't have to keep bugging me now02:33
Sientedaftykins, okay I have 1 fast question what's the best way to install LXDE on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS properly ?02:34
daftykinsdon't put a GUI on a server02:34
Sientedaftykins, hmm it's going to be a dev environment I'll be coding on this machine02:35
Sientedaftykins, it's my PC at home02:35
KalimeroSiente: security-wise you shouldn't install a x-server / gui on a server ( i tried and ubuntu told me not to do)02:36
Sientebut it won't be a server where I'll be hosting anything it I'll be just developing on it02:36
tgm4883Siente: I would guess 'sudo apt-get install lxde'02:36
ubottuLXDE ( http://lxde.org/ ) is the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment used by !Lubuntu. To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop ». See http://lubuntu.net/ for more information, and join #lubuntu for support.02:36
tgm4883!info lxde02:36
ubottulxde (source: lxde-common): Meta-package for the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.5.0-4ubuntu4 (vivid), package size 2 kB, installed size 30 kB02:36
Sientewhat graphical environment are you using guys02:37
KalimeroSiente: I3 if it counts02:37
tgm4883Siente: on my desktop? Unity02:37
daftykinsSiente: precisely. no GUI :)02:37
KalimeroSiente: Also known as I3wm02:39
Sientedaftykins, but this machine won't be a server I'll just have a dev environment where I'll be coding02:39
daftykinsthat's nice02:39
KalimeroSiente: so why dont you install ubuntu normaly?02:40
SienteI have installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS Desktop normally02:40
tgm4883Siente: You would install lxde via 'sudo apt-get install lxde'02:40
Sientetgm4883, I have installed LXDE this way on Ubuntu 15.04 didn't look good02:41
Kalimerotgm4883: +102:41
Sientehaven't tried on ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS02:41
Sienteon 15.04 was buggy02:41
tgm4883Siente: well yea, that would be default lxde02:41
tgm4883Siente: is that not what you wanted to do?02:41
Sienteit's what I wanted to do02:42
Sientedon't you like LXDE guys?02:42
tgm4883Siente: "didn't look good" isn't a very good description02:43
Sientetgm4883, true, but I don't have it installed now to make a screen shot of it and to show it to you what I call buggy02:44
Sientebtw I'll need just ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /home/siente/workspace/public right?02:45
daftykinsi think it's time you actually learnt for yourself rather than asking every single step of the way02:45
daftykinselse you won't know how to use this thing when you break it :)02:45
Sientehmm maybe I'll need to add alias for the phpmyadmin in the apache2.conf to be able to use it from anywhere :D02:46
Sienteokay I'll stop asking02:46
Sientephpmyadmin was saying that mcrypt is missing omg :D cd /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d && sudo ln -s ../../mods-available/mcrypt.ini 20-mcrypt.ini easy02:49
Sienteohh sorry for the spam have a great weekend02:49
guest813818so when setting up a firewall is iptables more powerful than ufw?02:50
=== Ivo is now known as Guest38676
plytroit depends on how you measure "powerful"02:54
Bashing-omGuest38676: You are not understanding. 'ufw' is a wrapper for iptables. IF one understands 'iptables' there is no need of 'ufw' .02:55
=== Guest38676 is now known as Ivoah
IvoahBashing-om: what?02:56
Bashing-omIvoah: " IPTABLES(8) >> iptables/ip6tables — administration tool for IPv4/IPv6 packet filtering and NAT " All you need .02:57
IvoahBashing-om: what are you talking about?02:58
plytroThe default firewall configuration tool for Ubuntu is ufw. Developed to ease iptables firewall configuration, ufw provides a user friendly way to create an IPv4 or IPv6 host-based firewall. By default UFW is disabled.03:00
ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo03:00
plytroIvoah: he was talking to a guest who left, and tab completed to you03:01
guest81838so just quickly, iptables modifies ufw firewall rules or ufw modified iptables firewall rules?03:04
daftykinsthe latter03:04
daftykinswow you really don't follow do you :)03:04
Bashing-omIvoah: eah ^^ Sorry bout that . my opologies .03:05
guest81838this is rather confusing, 2 different packages to config 1 firewall03:05
IvoahBashing-om: no problem03:05
plytroufw makes it easier to configure iptables03:05
daftykinsno, ufw is the noob friendly one - iptables is the insanely complex low level one03:05
guest81838so essentially ufw just mods iptables03:05
plytroguest81838: and don't forget there are many other wrappers03:05
guest81838and essentially iptables is modified anyway regardless wether you use ufw or not right?03:06
fhrhchTgm4883 - did you install unity in ubuntu?03:06
plytroI see it more like, you can use cd, ls, cat, etc to get around your filesystem03:06
guest81838since its like the base of all packet filtering03:06
plytrobut you can browse around with a mouse in the window environment03:06
tgm4883fhrhch: yes03:07
plytroI think that is a more accurate comparison03:07
guest81838so essentially iptables is the base of all linux packet filtering and all the frontends(like ufw) just edit iptables?03:07
fhrhchTgm4883 - with wine? I cannt find unity linux version03:07
daftykinsguest81838: i think it's time you read up online now, you're going over and over the same thing.03:08
guest81838is that a yes?03:08
plytro!iptables | guest8183803:08
ubottuguest81838: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities.

daftykinshow many ways do you want to phrase the same thing before you get it o003:08
plytro!ufw | guest8183803:08
plytronothing modifies the executable iptables03:09
tgm4883fhrhch: and here we have one of the many naming issues with software. I'm talking about the DE, not the game engine03:09
guest81838so its a yes?03:09
plytroyou question is not even accurately formed for a yes/no response03:09
daftykinsguest81838: go learn.03:09
guest81838not the executrable but the iptables configureation03:09
plytroread, play with them, learn03:10
plytroyes, ufw is used to configure iptables rules03:10
fhrhchTgm4883 - oic. Feel so fool03:11
guest81838so the kernel module is where the actual filtering occurs?03:11
guest81838not iptables03:11
daftykinslike we said go read.03:12
daftykinsthis is getting irritating and isn't really ubuntu support03:12

daftykinscoolstar-pc: i suspect you're not using vanilla ubuntu, as it would detect the hardware properly04:26
coolstar-pcdaftykins: I'm using Ubuntu 15.0404:27
coolstar-pcthe issue is that my C720P shipped with an Elan trackpad instead of the normal Cypress trackpad C720's ship with04:27
coolstar-pcso chromeos-laptop doesn't enumerate the trackpad properly04:27
daftykinswhat does "chromeos-laptop" have to do with ubuntu?04:28
coolstar-pcit enumerates the light sensor, touch screen and a *cypress* not *elan* trackpad04:28
coolstar-pcchromeos-laptop is the module in the Linux kernel04:28
daftykinshmm perhaps you need to disable the chunk of code in that module for the wrong pad04:29
daftykinsyou must be quite the niche situation though :)04:29
coolstar-pcyes I was able to fix the issue by patching that module04:29
coolstar-pcbut the patch should be pushed upstream04:30
coolstar-pcdaftykins: well for some reason on the Acer C720, Acer switched some stuff on the ones that shipped after a certain date04:30
coolstar-pcthey switched the CPU from the Celeron 2955U to Celeron 2957U and the trackpad from cypress to elan04:30

chalcedonymy husband is having problems getting his main hard drive to boot. he gets an error: Unknown file system ; Entering rescue mode ... ; grub rescue>06:36
chalcedonythis is a desktop. he is /not/ running windows anything (which i'm reading about when i search for the error online06:37
chalcedonyhe's running Ubuntu 14.0406:38
TJ-chalcedony: the usual cause for that issue is that the file-system containing GRUB's menu.cfg and essential modules cannot be found.06:39
chalcedonywhat can i do?06:39
TJ-chalcedony: Which file-system that is depends on whether Ubuntu/Linux is installed with a separate /boot/ partition-file-system - if not, then GRUB's files will be in the operating system root file-system06:40
chalcedonyi mumbled about the 15.04 live DVD i made him06:40
chalcedonyTJ-, i doubt that he did the custom installation06:41
TJ-chalcedony: first thing to do, when you get the "rescue>" prompt is to to find out where grub thinks its files are. "set" will report GRUB variables. The important two are "prefix" and "root"06:41
chalcedonyok TJ- thanks let me go see06:41
TJ-chalcedony: since the last successful boot have any extra storage devices been added (hard drives, flash storage - possibly attached with USB)06:42
chalcedonyTJ-, not usb but he's removed and replaced the motherboard and power supply, dunno which drives are different06:44
TJ-chalcedony: Ahhhh! it is possible with a replacement motherboard that 1 of 2 things could change. The first is the mode the disk controller uses to access the disk drives. If the drive is relatively recent then the controller should be using AHCI mode, which needs setting in the motherboard Setup.06:46
chalcedonyprefix=)nsd s6/boot/grub root=hd0,msdos106:46
TJ-chalcedony: the second issue can sometimes be that the mobo has multiple SATA controllers, and sometimes only 1 of them can have boot drives attached to its ports06:47
TJ-chalcedony: There was a typo there with "prefix=..." I think?06:47
TJ-chalcedony: That 2nd issue can't be causing this since the mobo has managed to read the bootstrap and GRUB's core.img code from the drive06:49
chalcedonyTJ-, yes - i'm copying from notes - computer is across the room06:49
TJ-chalcedony: give me a moment to start a GRUB virtual machine I have here, so I can replicate the "rescue>" situation06:50
chalcedonyTJ-, thank you VERY much :)06:50
TJ-chalcedony: That prefix - based on what root= says - should be "prefix=(hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub"06:51
chalcedonyi'll go look again06:51
chalcedonyTJ-, it is actually what i'm typing - i agree that an umatched ) is weird06:53
TJ-chalcedony: That is the fault then!06:53
chalcedonyhow do we fix?06:53
TJ-chalcedony: was the mobo replaced due to a fault? I wonder if another issue was corrupted disk drive contents06:54
chalcedonyTJ-, the board has an onboard nic - it wasn't seeing the lan06:54
decciAny ide what would be unum for %^&"06:56
TJ-chalcedony: OK... well let's see what we can do about getting you from rescue into the real system06:58
chalcedonyTJ-, super! thank you :)06:58
yermhello everybod06:59
squeakytoy2hey all, i have a newbie question. I am running the command: "servercommand & > log.txt", a log.txt files gets created but noting gets appended. "servercommand &> log.txt" logs to file, but when i dot ctrl+c interrupt, i actually kill my server command - what is the right syntax to use?07:00
=== hxm is now known as Guest51177
TJ-chalcedony: First you need to confirm that grub's core.img (which is what gives you the very limited rescue command-line) can see the drive. Type "ls" (LiSt) to see the drives and partitions that have been found. To fix this, you must be able to see (hd0,msdos1)07:02
chalcedonyTJ-, okies checking :)07:02
squeakytoy2oh, the command is "servercommand > log.txt &" and not "servercommand & > log.txt"07:05
chalcedonyTJ-, (hd0) (hd0,msdos5) (hd0,msdos1)07:06
=== matthew is now known as Guest36392
TJ-chalcedony: looking good then. OK 3 commands *should* get you booted. "set prefix=(hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub"   then "insmod normal"  then "normal" assuming no error messages from those commands you will now be at the standard GRUB boot menu07:07

chalcedonyTJ-, i put in insmod normal and got back: Error: Unknown file system07:12
OneM_IndustriesAh ha, perfect temp. Nice!07:13
TJ-chalcedony: OK... this seems to indicate the disk is corrupt07:13
chalcedonyTJ-, ouch07:14
TJ-chalcedony: You'll need a Live ISO image on DVD or preferably a USB flash device, boot that, and use to explore the extent of the corruption and either repair it, or recover vital data and reinstall07:14
chalcedonyTJ-, i see. what's the preference for USB?07:15
TJ-chalcedony: In case it's not disk corruption, but the new motherboard+RAM modules causing memory corruption right now, when you start the Live ISO image at its boot menu use the 'memtest' option and thoroughly test the system RAM07:15
chalcedonyah ok good idea07:16
TJ-chalcedony: I'd suggest the Ubuntu Desktop Live for 14.04 Trusty07:16
shafoxBen64: Not sure which one to install. In ubuntu software center i can only see this package nvidia binary x.org driver, while in askubuntu and in another blog post suggests to use a ppa. Confused. :/07:16
TJ-chalcedony: Right now we don't know if the corruption exists on the disk, or only once it has been read into system memory07:16
chalcedonyTJ-, no but i meant why USB over DVD?07:16
chalcedonygood point07:17
TJ-chalcedony: Time it takes, waste of a DVD07:17
chalcedonyTJ-, ok good he's got lots of dvds. has a thing about usb.07:17

TangurinHi, I am trying to install OH-MY-ZSH but when I run: sudo curl -L http://install.ohmyz.sh | sh , I get the message: git not installed! I got GIT installed and can run GIT in /var/www/site_folder but now it doesn't work?09:13
wydhryTangurin - can u run git in current terminal?09:17
Tangurinwydhry: yeah, then I got the helper text, "usage: git ...."09:17
Tangurinwydhry:  even if I run it in /etc folder09:18
wydhryPlease download it the sh file .. and edit it, might be misconfigured git location09:18
Tangurinwydhry: I wrote sudo su and got root access( I think?) and then I ran the commands and it seemed to work, was that the problem? shouldn't sudo be enough?09:21
wydhryMaybe. Could be anything09:22
Tangurinhmm true... sounds like a normal ubuntu day for me "could be anything" ;)09:23
EriC^^Tangurin: i think it's the line hash git .... || exit09:24
Tangurinwhat do you mean EriC^^ ?09:24
EriC^^in the script there's a line hash git >/dev/null ...... || echo "git not installed"; exit09:25
EriC^^Tangurin: maybe your path doesn't include git09:31
EriC^^and root's does09:31
Tangurinokey.. can I change this in some way EriC^^ ? this is so damn complicated! no when I got success I cannot even find the .zshrc file to set alias and etc09:32
wieselchenHi, what kind of directories should I include for my system backup? I currently only think of /etc and ~09:32
EriC^^where are you running the command in? which directory?09:32
EriC^^Tangurin: also as your user, type which git09:32
EriC^^Tangurin: it's cause you installed the script using root so it was installed to /root09:32
TangurinEriC^^: usr/bin/git09:33
Tangurinis that bad or doesn't it matter?09:33
EriC^^ok, type cd as your user to go to your home dir09:33
EriC^^then try running the script again09:33
TangurinEriC^^:  I will make a summary of this now: I could not install ZSH so I wrote sudo su and got root access and then it worked. then I rebooted the ubuntu server and logged in with normal user account. But it seems like I was still  root even if I rebooted the server, so I wrote sudo su again and now I am the normal user again, and not root. when I wrote "cd" now, I come to the home folder where my .zshrc file ise09:36
TangurinEriC^^: Everythings seems to be alright then, or is this a bad practice?09:36
EriC^^it doesn't make sense09:36
Tangurinokey :/09:37
akikTangurin: you should always use sudo su -09:37

TangurinWhen I login I the terminal shows my servername and a percent (%)09:38
EriC^^type id09:38
TangurinEriC^^: Okey when I login I am not root, I am the user tangurin, but when I write sudo su, I get the root09:39
Tangurinand when I write sudo su I get colors in the terminal09:39

DC_is there a way for me to set up this pc to just be a open type server so i can access it from anywhere?11:32

xylothen use terminal11:33
DC_did i have a stupid question lol?11:33
mlvmhnlike ctrl+alt+delete in windows?11:33
bekksmlvmhn: dmesg does not contain any information of a prior boot. You have to take a look at the logs instead.11:33
Ben64DC_: its not very specific, what does 'open type server' mean? and what do you want to access from anywhere?11:33
xyloyou want ftp server?11:34
mlvmhnwhen it hangs, i must hit the power button11:34

DC_yeah a ftp server sorry i dont know that much11:34

mlvmhnk, but i think Chrome is the villain here, but why?11:35
DC_oh i use to be into computers like 7 years ago just now trying to paly around with it again i used phpnuke and stuff for websites it seems like nothing is close to the same lol11:35
DC_ssh? and would i access it by ip?11:36

mlvmhnin terminal?11:37

MonkeyDustDC_  linux is opensource, no need to 'hack'11:51
DC_i mean like from keyloggers ect11:51
EriC^^DC_: it depends on what you install11:51
chalcedonyDC_, step 1 apt-get install vim - then use it.11:51
EriC^^linux being open source means bugs will surface and be fixed, and at the same time it means unofficial bugs can be found more easily and used11:52
DC_i didnt know if there is a keylogger or anything like that for linux like could people hack your pc useing unbuntu11:52

akikpoppe: i'm not sure what happened to linux-backports-modules. maybe you should try to search more to find a solution for your version of ubuntu and your wifi chip13:52
BlackDalekwhat do I need to install to access another PC's desktop remotely on my LAN? both PCs are running ubuntu 15.04. I turned on desktop sharing on the target PC, now what do I need on this PC to access the remote PC?13:55
BlackDalekI found remminam which looks like it might do what I want, but can't figure out how to use it.13:56
MonkeyDustBlackDex  if ssh suits you, try gigolo14:02
BlackDaleknevermind I figured it out using vnc4server14:03

rizikonI have a working btrfs filesystem which I rm'ed a file from. I've rebooted to a live env and am trying to restore it, however btrfs-find-root is failing with the error "Went past the fs size, exiting"14:43

playenballarulmagi_, if you switch to ubuntu-mate-desktop I would also select ubuntu-mate-minimal-install as well15:51
pauljwarulmagi_, also if you aren't short on space, you can leave them both installed and select which ever one you want at login.15:51
playenballadmin-g, it is all good because it is still the same ubuntu base15:52
arulmagi_i got around some 500 gb so no problem with space.... i just want to see how MATE works.... heard some nice things about it15:53

wearsockshello there, i cannot watch streamings for I have no flash. how can I avoid flash and still watch them? with html5?15:54
playenballarulmagi_, if I were you I would just install the mate desktop and see how you like it first before removing the kubuntu one15:54
MonkeyDustwearsocks  why ask if you have the answer15:54
playenballadmin-g, as long as all you are removing is the desktop then yes15:54

wearsocksI dont have problem with youtube videos. It is other video sites (like news sites) that do not show15:57
playenballadmin-g, as long as you had all the right packages still installed it should be ok. I personally find tasksel to just be cleaner and quicker because the scripts that run already know what packages you need15:59

OerHeksAs of 2015-05, the old "pepperflashplugin-nonfree" is deprecated in favor of an official, maintained, one-step package called adobe-flashplugin, which works for Firefox and Chromium and derivatives.16:11
OerHeks( that one downloads chrome indeed, to obtain the plugincontainer)16:11
wearsocksOerHeks, but it is "adobe-flash", right?16:11

OerHeksBBLLCC, then you will have a hardtime to get an answer16:17
weloveandroidSorry about, got disconnected16:17
wearsocksOerHeks, interestingly, also a device which has flash plugin installed does not accept it anymore, either, for being outdated etc.16:17
weloveandroidAnyway, is Ubuntu 15.04 a good version of Ubuntu to use for OS development?16:18
OerHeksflash is dead, it does not know it yet.16:18
kadiroyes wearsocks for that i said pepper but like OerHeks said i can't add anyting16:18
weloveandroidOr is anything older than that sufficent?16:18
BBLLCCthere must be a way to list all installed versions of marble16:18

BBLLCCand purge the old one16:18
kadiroBBLLCC: apt-cache search marble and apt-cache policy marble16:19
wearsocksso where we are is that flash is no more, and pepper thing drags along chrome with it?16:20
kadirowearsocks: install chrome or wait :p16:20

hioi have 15.04 vivid, so why isnt it available16:53
k1lhio: yes, its not for 15.04. its only for ubuntu releases up to 13.04 or something.16:53
hioi need a newer kernel so that the vmware shared folders work16:53

ubottuhio: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds16:53
OerHekshio,  you should use the mainline.. http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/16:53
hioi dont understand omg16:53
OerHekshio, and use at your own risc, backup stuff first16:54
hiowhat is the command??16:54
cfhowletthio, if you don't understand then you really should approach changing kernels with caution16:54
OerHekshio, it is on that page16:54
bjensen82k1l: any idea how I can this this?16:54
hioi just need shared folders to work, google says i need a newer kernel because it doesnt work with 3.1916:54
k1lbjensen82: IdleOne i guess that needs some dpkg depp diving. but i am not available right now for that task :/16:54
bjensen82anyone else have the time to help out? :-/16:55
OerHekshio, explain please?16:55
WalkerdineHow can I list what devices I have attached to my computer? I need to check if /dev/sdf is the thing I think it is16:56

hioi have to restart, maybe then it works16:56
WalkerdineCool thanks16:57

OerHeksbjensen82, line 34 and on:  no space on the device.. what does ' df -h " tell you ?17:01
hio_ubuntu is really complicated17:02
bjensen82OerHeks: well i saw the no space left so I started removing old kernel versions..but when I wanted to run apt again..it was busted in the state its in now..17:02
bekkshio_: Can you be more specific?17:02
hio_i have to read all kinds of articles to install something17:03
bekkshio_: Which is the same on all OS, even Windows.17:03
OerHekshio_,  problem is, you are sparse with information too.17:03
hio_on windows i just have to double click17:03
xanguasiddhartha_xs: why are you installing firefox from a downloaded deb file instead using the repository¿17:03
bekkshio_: And then you have installed some software you have no clue about on how to use it - and you have to read the docs. Same thing. And not supported related.17:04
OerHekssiddhartha_xs, are you running debian?17:04
bjensen82OerHeks: and right now when I look at  http://pastie.org/10383908? Im a bit afreid to reboot the system..should I be?17:04

bekkshio_: Those are non-standard kernel, as you should have read.17:06
OerHeks hio_ nice, do you need al those kernels? and whatfor ?17:06
hio_the website said i have to download them all and install them17:06
hio_"It is best to downloaded the files into a folder by themselves. Then, one may install all the packages simultaneously by executing the following in a terminal:  sudo dpkg -i *.deb"17:06
bekkshio_: Which website told you to install non-install kernel?17:06
siddhartha_xsfirefox comes bundled with ubuntu. i made a huge mistake installing this elementary thing. it sucks and it lags.17:07
bjensen82OerHeks: can I see which packages depend on the package?17:07
bekkshio_: What do you need mainline builds for?17:07
hio_i dont understand what mainline means omg17:07
hio_i just want a new kernel17:07
bekkshio_: Why?17:07
hio_to fix shared folder bugs17:07
bjensen82libssl-dev depends on libssl1.0.0 (= 1.0.1-4ubuntu5.27) ..what if I remove the libssl-dev and reinstall it?17:08
bekkshio_: Show us the bug report containing the information that those bugs are fixed with a new kernel please.17:08
OerHeksbjensen82, good thinking, remove/purge and reinstall17:08
hio_bekks: here it says it: https://communities.vmware.com/message/251002517:10
bjensen82that worked!17:11
bekkshio_: Wrong bugreport. It doesnt even mention mainline builds. It clearly tells you how to fix that error.17:11
ubottuGlad you made it! :-)17:11

OerHeksbjensen82, now please keep up2date :-)17:12
hio_i ONLY have problems with ubuntu packages constantly17:14

beakyhow do i install windows vm underubuntu17:15
beakyso that i can evaluate windows server 201617:15
hio_no it wont work anyway, i dont have so much time omg i just want to try a better kernel17:15
hio_but NOTHING WORKS17:15
bekksbeaky: Install a hypervisor software like Virtualbox, VMware Workstation, KVM or XEN, and then install your VM as usual.17:16
bekkshio_: The link YOU provided clearly states that a new kernel will now fix the issue.17:16
anonymouszdorova pediki17:16
OerHeksbeaky, find a supported virtualiser, ask in ## windows perhaps?17:16
cfhowlettbeaky, virtualbox + win7 = fully upgraded and working.  guest additions allows me to access my /music in ubunt + itunes in windows17:16
hio_ffs thats why im trying to install a new kernel but it doesnt work17:17
anonymouskozli mother fucker17:17

hio_so why does it try to download it then17:20
k1lhio_: so stop trying to use that PPA. its not gonna work no matter how much you swear17:20
OerHekshio_, so you are on a VMware image, want to share folders, and want a newer kernel without even telling us what the real issue is. is ubuntu the host or the vm ?17:20
k1lhio_: because you added that PPA.17:20
hio_i just do what the links tell me to do17:21
bekkshio_: You just staed you are ignoring the solution offered in the link you posted.17:22
hio_i shouldnt need to fix ubuntu's mistakes17:22
bekkshio_: The issue is a missing patch for VMware Workstation - you really should read your link.17:23
k1lhio_: drop that attitude!17:23
OerHekshio_, goodluck17:23
hio_so why cant that missing update come automatically via ubuntu update?17:23
k1lhio_: you are just ranting and swearing. this is not the way you contact this support run by volunteers.17:23
k1lhio_: did you file a  bug on ubuntu?17:23
bekkshio_: BEcause VMware Workstation is not even shipped by Ubuntu - but by VMware.17:23
bekkshio_: Now stop your ranting, read the link, follow the solution.17:24
bekksk1l: It's a VMware bug.17:24
k1lhio_: and i did not find where the !mainline command and wiki page says to use a PPA that is not for recent ubuntu versions.17:25
hio_i googled how to install new kernel and got it from some website17:25
WalkerdineI keep getting the error message17:25

admin-gHello guys I am installing kubuntu desktop and I am wondering if I should pick lightdm or sddm17:30
k1ladmin-g: 15.04?17:31
admin-gk1l: yes17:31
cfhowlettadmin-g, pretty sure light-dm is the default on all *buntus17:31
Caveman_light dm would be my choice17:31
k1ladmin-g: i think kubuntu uses sddm now17:31
cfhowlett! or not17:31
WalkerdineDoes fdisk have a "g" command17:31
cfhowlettWalkerdine, gdisk17:31
admin-gk1l: thanks cx17:31
admin-gOhh yea is there a way to uninstall all other desktops so I only use kubuntu?17:32
WalkerdineShould I switch the fdisk command in the flasher script to gdisk?17:32
cfhowlett!purekubuntu | admin-g17:32
bekksadmin-g: you dont have to uninstall something for using kubuntu.17:32
admin-gbekks: I know but I have Ubuntu-desktop and gnome it takes space and I want more space on my computer17:33
wileeeadmin-g, It you are filling up your hard drive you better have it backed up.17:36
admin-gwileee: I back it up every now and then when I think I'll need it but is there a way to back up Java? I need it for webstorm and phpstorm and I'm tired of downloading it ever time I format17:37
wileeeadmin-g, use a ltl.17:40
admin-gwileee: ltl???17:40
wileeelongterm support release17:40
ubottuLTS 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.

gaurav_SpringDevI have a vga laptop17:42
admin-gk1l: I am done installing now but is it bad if two lines said "1. Unknown media type in type 'all/all'"17:42
gaurav_SpringDevwant to connect to HDMI tv17:42
gaurav_SpringDevcan somebody suggest me?17:43
admin-gcfhowlett: does that mean Java is reinstalled on it? The jdk I mean17:43
gaurav_SpringDevvga laptop to HDMI output...?17:43
admin-ggaurav_SpringDev: just plug a hdmi cable from computer to TV??17:44
cfhowlettadmin-g, no, LTS means Long Term Support.  non LTS, 15.04, have a 9 month lifecycle.  LTS has at least 3 years17:44
gaurav_SpringDevdoes not work17:44
OerHeksgaurav_SpringDev, find a vga-hdmi adaper/kit17:44
gaurav_SpringDevfrom 14.04 LTS has atleast 5 years17:45
gaurav_SpringDevOerHeks : is it a software kit or hardware?17:45
admin-gcfhowlett: and how would that make me able to back up my Java installation or anything else?17:45
cfhowlettgaurav_SpringDev, false.  xubuntu = 3 years17:45
gaurav_SpringDevbut I have a cable which takes vga input and gives HDMI output17:46
admin-gOkay guys just got done installing it and my computer is rebooting arm17:46
cfhowlettadmin-g, you don't need LTS to backup ANYTHING.17:46
gaurav_SpringDevwhich I am connecting17:46
gaurav_SpringDevand no output is being displayed on the TV17:46
admin-gcfhowlett: then why did someone tell me to use it when I asked that someone if there was a way to back up jdk installation dad17:47
admin-gUhh take the dad out haha17:47
cfhowlettadmin-g, you complained about frequent downloads.  On LTS, you do not need to upgrade every 9 months, thus ... fewer downlods17:47
sever2clienthow to get lts17:48
wileeeadmin-g, Hard to tell what your doing honestly, sounded to me like the hard drive space was tight, that is not a good thing, so I suggested a backup scenario is all.17:48
cfhowlettServerSage, download 14.04.317:48
BernzelHey. Im having some issues with remmina vnc connecting to my mac. It have worked flawlessly before, now though it refuses to connect to the mac. I've rebooted both systems but no difference. Anyone got some ideas?17:49
macskayWhere is the system's default alacarte config in a 15.04?17:49
admin-gcfhowlett: no I asked if there was a way to back up my Java and I also said that I am tired of having to download it every time I format my computer in case you wondered why I would want to back up my jdk installation17:49
OerHeksmacskay, there is no default alacarte anymore17:49
macskayHow does it populate then?17:50
OerHeksmacskay, use unitytweak or https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UnityLaunchersAndDesktopFiles17:50
macskayI've build a custom ubuntu with all my stuff in it, but when installing my home folders get flushed, meaninf all the alacarte settings are gone17:50
macskayi could back it up into my dotfiles-repo but yeah, would be neat to just tell the installation to use that file17:51
OerHeks"when installing my home folders get flushed" ... custom ubuntu ?17:51
macskayOerHeks, yeah I just installed all the packages i want into an ordinary ubuntu 15.04 installation and created a setup file with distroshare17:52
macskaynow everytime i use that distro i get all the programs i want rom the beginning17:52
OerHeksOh, can't help you there, so you found the cause.17:53
macskayhowdoes alacarte populate its menus in the first place, so when you don't have any settings17:53
gaurav_SpringDevwhile connecting from VGA to HDMI output; it is showing no signal on the TV..??can anyone tell me?18:01

DarkSectorWhere should I install the bootlaoder?18:17
DarkSectorOn the Ubuntu SSD or Windows 7 SSD?18:17
Bernzelbekks Well if that is the case, what could possibly cause the software to stop connecting to my mac after weeks of successful usage?18:17
bekksDarkSector: On the boot disk.18:17
DarkSectorwell, I'd like to boot from the Ubuntu SSD, but grub says it's unable to install on ti18:17
DarkSectorbekks ^18:18
bekksBernzel: Can you connect successfully with another client?18:18
bekksDarkSector: So whats the full error you get?18:18
DarkSectorBoot loader install failed18:18
DarkSectorUnable to install grub on /dev/sda18:18
DarkSectorI have the windows boot loader on /dev/sdb18:18
bekksDarkSector: Then why are you trying to install it on sda?18:19
bekksDarkSector: You will not be able to dualboot automatically that way.18:19
DarkSectorOkay, so I had the wrong idea. I thought if I were to install it on /dev/sda, I could set boot priority18:19
DarkSectorand grub would show up18:20
DarkSectorand I would be able to select windows or Linux from there18:20
bekksDarkSector: Thats "manually setting boot order" and not "dual boot" :)18:20

DarkSectorBut say, I do want to use manual boot. I should be able to install grub on /dev/sda right?18:20
WalkerdineIn the script I am running there is a command like "fdisk /dev/$1 <<EOF"18:20
DarkSectorMy real question is, why can't I install it on /dev/sda18:20
Walkerdineand then on multiple lines there are letters and then EOF18:21
Bernzelbekks , dont have any other clients to try on unfortunatly, I was hoping there was debugging/logging options to track the source of the problem?18:22
bekksBernzel: You dont need other client computers. All you need is another program, so you can identify wether the issue is on the mac side, or on the remmina side.18:23
Bernzelbekks ah I see. X2 or what is it called? Same thing?18:26
Caveman_whats a good wm that is easy to configure?18:29

mancomunado    dd is not burning neither XP or 7. "Operational system not found". Anyone had similar results?18:37
OerHeksadmin-g_, more a question for #ubuntu-server. likely you edit that new path, but webstorm is not an ubuntu package. so i find no manual18:38
akikmancomunado: dd is not used to burn anything18:38
OerHeksakik +118:39

admin-g_pauljw i dont think its spesified to any desktop but if you think so then i could try to install ubuntu-desktop again19:03
WalkerdineEverything works fine until the board_partition() function19:03
OerHeksadmin-g_, i had that same advice for you in mind :-D19:03
WalkerdineIn which I can't figure out what its doing19:03
pauljwadmin-g_, i don't know, i'm just thinking out loud.  lots of things load drivers and paths according to the environment they're installed under19:04
admin-g_OerHeks, pauljw nope i never uninstalled ubuntu-desktop so it should work19:04
pauljwokay admin-g_   was just a guess19:04
admin-g_ pauljw i just wanted to tell you19:05
OerHeksadmin-g_, you uninstalled kubuntu desktop, so check again if that firestorm is still there.19:05
kadiroadmin-g: if you lunch a script from a full path it work?19:06
admin-g_OerHeks if i did that i wouldnt be using kubuntu right now i am not understanding what you are saying19:06
WalkerdineBashing-om: Would you like to see the output?19:07
CarlFKtrusty - does it have avlib (or libav, or whatever the new ffmpeg is called?)19:07

gaurav_SpringDevTJ_on_Wily : I have brought up a cable which takes vga input and gives HDMI output19:12
gaurav_SpringDevTJ_on_Wily :but when connecting to a HDMI device; it is showing me no signal19:12
gaurav_SpringDevdo I stille need a converter?19:13
onepolari think u should use converter19:13
kadiroa small circuit analog to digital do a staff19:13
Bashing-omWalkerdine: "WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdf'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted." Here is the rub. the script was written for MSDOS partitioning, and seems you have GPT. 'fdisk' does not support GPT. The tool to cope with GPT is 'gdisk' .19:14
TJ_on_Wilygaurav_SpringDev, It is not possible to use a passive cable; if the cable has an integrated D/A converter then it *might* work. You'd have to check the specifications of the cable's converter19:14
kadiroyes gaurav_SpringDev if you are not experienced with electronic testing19:14
gaurav_SpringDevthat is quite okie...but when I am plugginn in the cable; even xrandr is not showin up the connected devices;don't you think that atleast xrandr should show me the output....19:15
gaurav_SpringDeveven if the cable is not supporting19:16

admin-g_kadiro in the file i wrote "terminal=false" but whn i open it up it opens with terminal why is that??19:16
TJ_on_Wilygaurav_SpringDev, VGA to DVI-I will work, but no VGA to DVI-D or HDMI or DisplayPort19:16
TJ_on_Wilygaurav_SpringDev, If the PC has a DVI-D that can directly connect to HDMI19:17
OerHeksgaurav_SpringDev, some hdmi devices must be enabled on the machine before boot. might worth a look19:18
kadiroadmin-g: because you use under it a script or the script it self open some command needed from terminal19:18
BluesKajyes, I use a DVI to HDMI , works well19:18
gaurav_SpringDevso TJ_on_Wily :  if the pc has DVI-D; then?19:19
admin-g_kadiro but my phpstorm doesnt do that it just opens up with no terminal19:19

Bashing-omWalkerdine: You can not do GPT with a MSDOS tool . I do suggest that you go back to your susouce and see if there is a script supporting GPT . Or get twith the author of the script and see what can be workd out . By this time I would assume there has been a mod made to support GPT partitioning .19:33

Demon_JesterHey guys, I just received a computer from a friend, its a old pc I haven't checked the specs (I just know it has pentium 4 maybe 512 or 1gb of ram) I usually throw ubuntu server, and throw it in my closet, but I was thinking of using a different server distro, and wanted opinions.20:45
akikIDJ: if you execute free you will see the amount of swap space you have20:45
ubuntu528Bashing-om: So, should I get Lubuntu?20:45

guest242i would put it in a module but not so sure i want it that way... just curious if anybody knew of any internal memory management functions in linux that already could do this shutting of virtual and going back to physical memory for a  little bit so i could read memory linearly... though i probably could just read all the pages in the page table with there function but really wanted to read not only all the pages but what was left ov21:20

kujuHi, I have an AsusGL551JM gaming laptop with an NVidia 860M graphics card. I installed 14.04 for development, and the built-in video worked fine until a recent update (just your regular old GUI-prompt update). I've tried apt-get purge nvidia-*. Can only log into shell by setting grub loader to "text". Not sure where to go next. Help appreciated21:37

kujuBashing-om: Thanks! It made some progress for me at least, haha. Any suggestions on how to get past the login page loop?21:52
Bashing-omkuju: Depends on the cause . Sometimes it is the graphics driver . Try and reboot the system ? Do you own the files in yout /home ? A loss of authorization to access /home will also cause the looping .21:54
kujuBashing-om: Read/write access to /home is ok. Reboot yielded same result21:55

Bashing-omkuju: As you can see there are 3 issues at play here . Let's try and addess the xserver issue 1st . Let's try ' sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg ; sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg ; sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg ' . See what the package manager advises !23:40
kujuBashing-om: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1222627323:44
usviok my error, I had linker definitions before object files in Makefile23:44
Bashing-omkuju: Look'n at http://paste.ubuntu.com/12226273 .23:44
Bashing-omkuju: Well, the plot thickens . Got to have that package . On my system " dpkg -l xserver-xorg >> ii  xserver-xorg   1:7.7+1ubunt amd64 ' . Looks like we have to deal with libcheese7 before we can address the xserver.23:47
kujuBashing-om: Aight. I love cheese23:48
Bashing-omkuju: Let's do ' sudo apt-get purge libcheese7 ; sudo apt-get install libcheese7 ' . See how that effects the need to fix libcheese-gtk23 . Then maybe we can return to xserver .23:49
Viseionthis computer is mental23:50
kujuBashing-om: Okay, I'm seeing the pattern here. We're systematically purging and re-installing this dependency from the leaves to the root23:52
chadwinheyyyyyyyy everyone23:54
kujuBashing-om: Good news! After refreshing libcheese7, the xserver-xorg reinstall worked23:54
