Aniarhi. I have a weird problem I can't figure out - I just fresh-built Kubuntu 15.04 on an SSD on a Thinkpad.  Every time I reboot /usr/sbin/bluetoothd is 0644. I "chmod +x /usr/sbin/bluetooth && systemctl start bluetooth" and BT works. but next reboot, it's back to 644.  /home is NOT mounted separately, and I'm not losing any data there, so this is specific, as far as I can see, to /usr/sbin/bluetoothd. anyone seen anything like thi00:18

lordievaderGood morning.07:33
Hari_Hai, I need some help about installing Kubuntu 15.0407:39
lordievaderAt what point do you get stuck?07:39
Hari__The installer crashes when I come to the keyboard setup screen07:42
Hari__I think it is a problem of the installer. Is there anyway I can bypass the default installation route?07:43
lordievaderDoes it crash with some kind of a traceback?07:44
Hari__traceback means?07:44
lordievaderError message of where in the code things went wrong.07:44
lordievaderCould you pastebin that by any chance?07:45
Hari__I don't have it with me now, but I'll get it.07:45
Hari__Is there anyway to bypass that keyboard selection screen manually?07:46
lordievaderI'm not sure.07:46
Hari__Ah OK07:47
lordievaderAs a work around you could take the mini iso, that has a text based installer.07:47
Hari__What is that mini iso?07:49
Hari__Where can I get it?07:49
Hari_I just did a search and it seems there isn't any mini installer for kubuntu07:53
lordievaderHari_: All flavors have the same minimal iso. During the installation you select which de you want.07:55
Hari_Ah thanks:)07:55
Hari_I'll do it then.07:56
ejayhi all08:26
alvinThe mini installer still exists? I didn't know that? Does it have the same installer as the old 'alternate installer' which could do more?09:24

kalibHello guys, after my last upgrade my kde/plasma5 is kind of broken.. Can I restore it to the defautl configs? I mean, perhaps rm -rf .config/kde*, rm -rf .config/plasma*, rm -rf /.local/share/kde*, rm -rf .local/share/plasma* ?13:29
soeekalib: i think there are also some settings related to configuration directly inside .config13:32
kalibsoee: so, what do you suggest to completely restore my kde/plasma 5?13:32
alvinmadmouser1: Thanks, but it is enabled. I'll need to dig into this. Might be the server too.13:34

Copernicus22acpi pcc probe failed    after upgrade to ubuntu 15.04 :(20:58
Copernicus22been googling, not much luck :sss20:59
TJ-Copernicus22: don't worry about it; it's just a verbose debug message left in by mistake21:00
Copernicus22I get a busybox21:00
Copernicus22can't boot21:00
TJ-Copernicus22: unrelated to ACPI PCC probe21:01
Copernicus22 /dev/disk/by-id/.... does not exist21:01
TJ-Copernicus22: That sounds like a systemd-init not finding one of the file-systems required to boot the system21:03
TJ-Probably the root FS. Does the system use LUKS/dm-crypt full disk encryption?21:03
Copernicus22its not encrypted21:04
TJ-Copernicus22: that makes things simpler.21:04
Copernicus22I can't see the partitions21:04
Copernicus22it's a striped raid disk21:04
TJ-what does "cat /proc/cmdline" show as the root=21:04
TJ-How many disks in the RAID array? is it just RAID-0 ?21:05
Copernicus22can't run commands21:05
Copernicus222 disks in raid 021:05
TJ-I thought you had the busybox prompt?21:05
Copernicus22I booted from a livedisk I mean21:05
Copernicus22at the moment21:06
TJ-Copernicus22: Ahhh!21:06
TJ-Have you chroot mounted the broken config ?21:06
Copernicus22not yet, I'll have to google how to do that21:07
Copernicus22what do I google for?21:07
Copernicus22I did it once before but it's like 10 years ago :)21:07
TJ-First thing to do is check the live dmesg/kern.log to see if there are any I/O errors reported from those disks. RAID-0 is not particularly safe. A minor failure on one drive and the entire RAID device / file-system is gone21:08
TJ-Next thing is is to "sudo apt-get install smartmontools" and run "sudo smartctl --all /dev/sdX" to check the health of each device21:09
Copernicus22I was able to use a disk recovery tool from windows to backup my home dir21:09
TJ-If one device is failing the array likely won't be able to assemble21:10
Copernicus22yeah it seems that way21:11
Copernicus22strange that the diskrecovery tool still could read most of the files though21:11
Copernicus22at least it seamed that way21:12
TJ-With 2 disks I'd always prefer RAID-1 mirror.21:13
Copernicus22no errors logged21:14
Copernicus22TJ-: http://pastebin.com/nbxF6ig421:18
=== cynthia is now known as Guest88068
TJ-Copernicus22: that's good news. Maybe it is simply that the initrd.img didn't get correctly configured with the mdadm RAID config21:21
Copernicus22TJ-: mdadm ?21:22
TJ-mdadm is the multiple disk admin21:23
TJ-initrd.img == initial ramdisk (where the root file-system is found and mounted,and busybox shell lives)21:23
Copernicus22maybe I should follow this guide?21:24
Copernicus22TJ-: oh no not exactly21:25
Copernicus22it has the tools I need though :)21:26
TJ-Your issue may simply be the MD device for root-file-system has the wrong name (sometimes what installs as /dev/md0 becomes /dev/md127 on reboot21:26
TJ-It depends on which metadata version is used by mdadm on the disks. Nowadays it is supposed to be v1.2, but if it's v0.9 for example the device ID would need to be configured in the mdadm.conf which is copied to the initrd.img by update-initramfs21:28
Copernicus22TJ-: can you give me some pointers to learn how to do all this from a live cd?21:29
Copernicus22or busybox21:30
Copernicus22it's not really clear what you are saying in your last 2 lines21:30
Copernicus22all quite new to me :)21:32
TJ-Copernicus22: Well, the issues are quite complex. Why did you use RAID-0 if you're not familiar with managing it?21:32
Copernicus22TJ-: It's really fast :)21:32
* Vito blames raid 021:33
Vitossd + no swap (or -> 0 swapiness) are better21:33
TJ-Yeah... it fails faster too21:33
Copernicus22I'm going to implement and test a good backup system :)21:33
Copernicus22after I fix this21:34
Vitoraid 10 is better then21:34
Copernicus22Vito: hmmz, I'll look in to it21:35
Vitoeverything depends on your budget21:35
Copernicus22it's a laptop21:36
Vitossd then21:36
Vitossd for os, no swap and an hdd into the second slot21:36
Copernicus22no space for another hard disk21:36
Vitofor /home21:36
Copernicus22I've got 2 ssd's and a hdd21:36
Copernicus22I never knew it was such a risk21:38
Copernicus22raid 021:38
Vitoraird 0 is by definition :'D21:38
Vitoit also depends on the disks21:39
Copernicus22why can't i see the partitions using the livecd?21:40
Vitousing two disks with a significantly long mtbf could bring overall mtbf to a single average disk's one21:40
Copernicus22I tried a couple partition tools21:40
VitoI have a very few experience with raid 0 for reasons above, sorry :(21:41
Copernicus22ok I'll try again tomorrow, thx anyways21:44
Vitomaybe a software raid needs some package like mdadm21:44
Vito(software raid is also evil)21:44
Copernicus22sudo mdadm --assemble --scan21:45
Copernicus22should show me the partitions?21:46
TJ-Copernicus22: there may be no partitions21:46
Copernicus22TJ-: http://pastebin.com/1qYxxAvD21:50
Copernicus22State : active failed21:50
Copernicus22TJ-: do you know what this means?21:51
TJ-Copernicus22: Ahhh, so it is Fake-RAID rather than Software-RAID, as in the metadata is set by the controller21:51
TJ-Copernicus22: " Slots : [_U]" suggests you need to enter the BIOS RAID setup and try to fix it from there. the "_" suggests a mising array member21:52
Vito--force option could work also21:54
Copernicus22I checked, doesnt miss a member21:56
Copernicus22Vito, force?21:56
TJ-"Disk00 Serial : P02430111202" is "active failed" so something has gone wrong somewhere21:56
TJ-Copernicus22: does the kernel command-line include "nomdmonddf nomdmonisw" ?21:57
Copernicus22the uuid doesnt match my grub.conf21:58
Vitobut TJ- knows more than me so it's up to him now21:59
Copernicus22Vito: ok thx21:59
Copernicus22I need to make a config file first it seems22:01
Copernicus22sudo mdadm --assemble --force /dev/md12722:01
Copernicus22mdadm: /dev/md127 not identified in config file.22:01
TJ-Copernicus22: the UUID if part of the RAID metadata; not the file-system for ROOT22:01
TJ-s/if part/is part/22:02
Copernicus22TJ-: ok22:02
Copernicus22anyways, I should really go to sleep now, thx again guys, see you tomorrow maybe22:03
TJ-Copernicus22: you could try "sudo mdadm --assemble /dev/md127 /dev/sda /dev/sdb"22:04
Copernicus22udo mdadm --assemble /dev/md127 /dev/sda /dev/sdb --force22:14
Copernicus22mdadm: /dev/sda is busy - skipping22:14
Copernicus22mdadm: /dev/sdb is busy - skipping22:14
TJ-Sounds like it's already partitially in-use. check with "cat /proc/mdstat"22:15
Copernicus22TJ-: didn't work22:15
Copernicus22can I paste 9 lines here or pastebin ? :)22:17
TJ-Copernicus22: how the heck!22:19
TJ-Copernicus22: if you can drop md126 I think it'd work :) It looks like somehow they array has split22:19
Copernicus22TJ-: hehe22:19
Vitorepeat with me, "raid 0 is evil"22:20
TJ-"sudo mdadm --stop /dev/md126"22:20
Copernicus22blk_update_request: critical target error, dev sr0, sector 256343222:35
Copernicus22ok really going to sleep now, cya :)22:37
TJ-sr0 is SCSI removable, e.g. DVD22:39
