AEL-Hmy SD card has lots of space on it, I am trying to to some jpegs on the SD into a movie using convert with -delay 10 -morph 10. It runs until it tells me device has run out of space -- but there are several gb free on the device, could someone tell me what is going on?00:41
daftykinswhat file system is on it?00:42
daftykinsand why are you conducting such a task on an SD card?00:42
AEL-Hpretty sure its mounted as ext4, and because my SD card has more space than the harddisk (this is running ubuntu thru crouton on a chromebook)00:43
daftykinsoh, nasty.00:45
daftykinsAEL-H: well, check by using "mount"00:45
daftykinswell, unfortunately crouton isn't official proper ubuntu so i'm not too comfy getting involved there.00:46
AEL-Hany ideas? anything would help really00:46
daftykins"df -h" might give a clue as to what usage is where00:47
AEL-Hyep I think its on /var/host/media instead of /media?00:47
daftykinsthe SD card? doesn't really make any sense to me.00:48
daftykinsbut then it's chrome beneath and not really ubuntu00:48
AEL-Hno the SD card is definitely mounted on /media, but what is filling up I think is /var/host/media00:48
=== ichery is now known as tci
daftykinsbut that's an entirely different mount point, how can a mount point fill a disk o000:49
AEL-HI am very confused =/00:49
daftykinsperhaps if you had a normal system running full ubuntu it'd be worth trying there00:49
AEL-Hjust generally confused as to why its happening.. crouton seems quite well made..00:50

Guest52337yes hostinger of course02:01
daftykinsso... where did you buy it?02:01

Guest52337I thought you said I should update my nameservers in hostinger right?02:05
Guest52337so it will point to my localhost server02:05
daftykinsbecause you'd have a computer humming away beside you that you point to and tell friends is "your server"02:05

daftykinsGuest52337: and that's what you have on the computer you're typing from right now?02:14
wileeeKSFT, Computers have two ways to change the boot, sounds like if the same when returning that is the per-session/boot choice.02:14
KSFTmy computer has two power buttons02:15

KSFTone of them starts normally, so I can't interrupt it02:15
wileeeKSFT, This W10?02:15
daftykinsGuest52337: what connection are you on? home broadband? likely your IP address to the internet (visit www.whatismyip.com to see it) will change regularly, so you can't really host a website from that. get a VPS first.02:15

wileee!uefi | KSFT have you been here?02:15
ubottuKSFT have you been here?: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI02:15
KSFTI've done this a few times before, on two other, completely different laptops02:16

KSFTI think it has BIOS, but I'm not sure02:16
wileeeKSFT, without any booted ubuntu see ##windows maybe, or the web02:16
KSFTwhen I press the other power button, a menu comes up, and one of the options is "BIOS Setup"02:17

KSFTwhy shouldn't I just use the Ubuntu installer thing?02:31
zacwallsKSFT, are you dual-booting?02:32
KSFTI am02:32
mate|25640wileee Yes, I'm told it will work, following instructions at https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/ubuntu-mate-1510-powerpc/2506/402:32
KSFTit's asking me to choose how big the partitions should be02:32
zacwallsKSFT, Because windows takes up the whole damn hard drive and you need to resize to make room for Ubuntu02:32
KSFTit doesn't look like it02:32
okmpohello there, my external drive is driving me crazy. I create partitions, and when I view the drive next time, the partitions are there, but with "unknown" label02:33
daftykinsKSFT: boot it, run diskmgmt.msc then right click on the C: partition and select 'shrink volume'02:33
KSFTis "it" Windows?02:33
daftykinsKSFT: it's certainly not a banana02:33
okmpoand I constantly got error messages while creating them. had to repeat several times02:33
zacwallshow to setup conky? I downloaded from the software center now all I get is an responsiveness launcher that says run conky.02:34
KSFTlooks like I'll be asking about wifi connection problems soon02:34
wileeemate|25640, When are you seeing the kernel choice, on the mini it is just a link to a net install.02:34
zacwallsKSFT, make sure your WI-FI switch is ON02:34
KSFTwhat switch?02:34
mate|25640wileee, It is using the text installation screens, this is the "Install the base system" screen. I am getting six different kernel selections. I can list them if you like.02:35
zacwallsKSFT, A lot of computers have a WI-FI switch on the outside. You can toggle it..02:35
KSFTmine doesn't02:35
KSFTUbuntu isn't shutting down now02:35
daftykinsKSFT: it's a live session so it doesn't matter?02:35
KSFTfull screen default desktop background02:35
daftykinsjust power off02:35
wileeemate|25640, I'm just trying to remember what that may be, in a imagebin or pastebin if text yeah.02:35
KSFTokay, I ran diskmgmt.msc02:37
mate|25640wileee, I can't paste from that machine but here they are: linux-powerpc-e500mc, linux-powerpc-smp, linux-image-powerpc-e500mc, linux-image-powerpc-smp, linux-image-4.2.0-16-powerpc-smp and linux-image-4.2.0-powerpc-e500mc02:37
daftykinsKSFT: so how big is the disk and how big is the C: partition?02:37
KSFTthe disk is supposed to be 512 GB02:38
KSFTit's a solid-state drive02:38
KSFTit won't let me shrink it more than 22224602:39
KSFTI assume that's MB02:39
daftykinsKSFT: if it were me, i would locate the 'create recovery discs' feature and either burn DVDs if the machine has an optical drive, or make backup ISOs to copy off before doing anything else.02:39
[n0mad]yeah that shrink in windows is junk02:39
wileeemate|25640, Cool, probably need someone more ppc knowing than I, never seen it and have no idea which choice, sorry.02:39
KSFTdaftykins: why?02:39
daftykinsKSFT: because then you have a way to go back if your ubuntu install inadvertently kills Windows.02:40
mate|25640wileee, no problem, thanks.02:40
daftykinsKSFT: i do this for a living so this is what i do.02:40
KSFTdaftykins: I don't have an optical drive or an extra flash drive that's bigger than 1 GB02:40
daftykinshmm that's pretty poor preparation then02:40
KSFTI think I'll just be careful not to get rid of Windows02:40
KSFTas long as Ubuntu's working, it wouldn't be terrible if it broke Windows02:41
daftykinsbe a big waste o' disk space.02:41
daftykinscheck what the wifi adapter is whilst you're there, devmgmt.msc02:41
Humorousone_KSFT: I read that in an evil voice02:41
worralphHello, im trying to build a package for a python3 program. I get the error dpkg-genchanges: error: binary build with no binary artifacts found; cannot distribute. Does anyone know what this means?02:42

Jordan_Uokmpo: Please pastebin the output of "sudo smartctl --all /dev/sdb".02:45
KSFTso how do I shrink the partition?02:45
daftykinsKSFT: well you can either go wit hthat resize, or you'll have to do something else to resize C: smaller.02:45
KSFTlike what else?02:46
VoyageIs there any great text to speech engine that I can just go and use?02:46
okmpoJordan_U, it says "smartctl: command not found" a typing error maybe?02:46
KSFTUbuntu said C: has 40.3 GB of data02:46
KSFTI'd like to leave it at maybe 80 GB02:46
daftykinsKSFT: one option would be to check the recycle bin is empty and defrag that SSD, which will make a lot of people in this room start screaming for even suggesting it - or you'll just have to do it from the ubuntu live session.02:46
zacwallsis it .conkyrc or .conkyrc.02:47
daftykinscall it an even 100GB, you won't get much out of 80GB with win8 or 1002:47
Jordan_Uokmpo: sudo apt install smartmontools02:47
KSFTwhat's wrong with doing it from the Ubuntu live session?02:47
wileeedaftykins, Nah windows has an optimizer it cool02:47
martinlaf12need block site web02:47
okmpoJordan_U, in progress02:47
NekoMaid420_So the sudoers file is read only. Is there a way to run vim or visudo where they override read-only?02:48
Jordan_UNekoMaid420_: I doubt that it is read only for root, which you need to be to edit /etc/sudoers.02:49
daftykinswileee: mm good point, TRIM won't help being able to shrink the volume more though :(02:50
NekoMaid420_I am root though Jordan_U. I booted into the recovery console02:50
okmpoJordan_U, this is the output: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13005742/02:50
daftykinsKSFT: it is less than ideal is all, use the tools native to the OS is my opinion. now there's more risk02:50
Jordan_UNekoMaid420_: sudo mount -o remount,rw /02:50
wileeedaftykins, true, not an easy context.02:51
NekoMaid420_Oh, just remount it as rewritable. Awesome! Thank you Jordan_U!!02:51
KSFTdaftykins: okay02:51
Jordan_Uokmpo: Is this a cheap flash drive?02:51
KSFTI think I'll do it anyway02:51
okmpoJordan_U, no02:51
Jordan_Uokmpo: What kind of drive is it?02:51
okmpoJordan_U, it is a flash drive. have it for a while02:52
wileeeKSFT, Chances are you can get the full OEM install discs from the manufacturer cheap, if tis is their MS install.02:52
KSFTwhat's OEM?02:52
wileeeKSFT, original manufacturer02:52
okmpoI had no problem with it until now02:53
Jordan_Uokmpo: Your flash drive is probably dying and returning garbage data.02:53
KSFTlike the discs to install Windows again if I break it?02:53

fumblehoolHI all ... 2 days ago i updated my ubuntu gnome to 15.04 on my pc but afterwards whenever i turn it on , it always shows me tty1 screen instead of GUI . Pressing Ctrl+Alt + F7 does nothing.I even tried running command startx but still no good. Can somebody tell me how to repair ?02:54
KSFTit says that it should be connected to the internet02:54
wileeeKSFT, yeah full install, I got a set for like 20$ US at one time, exact same as you have.02:54
KSFT"For best results", it says02:54
Jordan_Ufumblehool: What is the output of "systemctl status lightdm"?02:54
KSFTwileee: I'll keep that in mind in case this doesn't work02:54
KSFTshould I fix the wifi problem before trying to install Ubuntu?02:55
okmpoJordan_U, it is very long02:55
fumblehool lightdm.service Loaded:not -found (Reason :no such file or directory) Sctive : inactive (dead)02:56
wileeefumblehool, startx is incorrect on the de, can you login in that first tty?02:56
okmpoalso this happened with two flash drives.02:56
fumblehool@wileee  i can login to all tty02:56
KSFTso should I install Ubuntu and then fix the wifi problem or fix the wifi problem first?02:57
Jordan_Uokmpo: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com handles long output without issue.02:57
wileeeKSFT, Are you hard plugged that is all really, the wifi fix wont stay02:57
KSFTI don't have a wired connection02:58
wileeeKSFT, You have ethernet plugged into it?02:58
KSFTI think I have an ethernet cable I can use, though02:58
wileeeKSFT, I would not do it without having the net, you will be back here and need that I hope not but, having it hitting the repos on install is very good.02:59
Jordan_Uokmpo: You can also run "dmesg | pastebinit", which will automatically upload the output to http://pastebin.ubuntu.com and give you a link.03:00

nbros652I have a script set up to run a system beep (/usr/bin/beep). It works just fine when I run the script manually (produces a beep). When I configure the script to run in udev on USB insertion, the script runs (all other commands in the script create the expected output), but the beep command does not produce sound. Any ideas? ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/13005821/03:02
daftykinsKSFT: what's the point?03:02
wileeeVoyage, sound from your browser is?03:02
Jordan_UxMopxShell: For any SSD (not counting "thumb drives") made within the past few years you should be fine.03:03
xMopxShellJordan_U: alright, thanks03:03
Jordan_Unbros652: What user does the script run as?03:03
Voyagewileee, yes. any kind of sound03:03
KSFTdaftykins: because  I want it to be 100 GB?03:03
KSFTbecause I*03:03
KSFTI guess it doesn't matter much03:04
KSFT100.1 GB it is03:04
nbros652Jordan_U, I would assume udev runs it as root since it is capable of mounting and unmounting drives. Just to be safe, I changed the permissions on /usr/bin/beep to allow everyone access... still no luck.03:04
KSFT"any previous changes have to be written to disk"03:04
KSFTwhat does that mean?03:04
daftykinsdo it or nothing changes03:04
wileeeVoyage, handful of FF addons for gathering vids probably sound only, there are a couple of apps in ubuntu which separate it from vid if needed03:04
daftykinsKSFT: who does this system belong to?03:05

daftykinsKSFT: and the laptop from earlier too?03:05
KSFTwhich one?03:05
KSFT...what just appened?03:06
vincenzowhat's the problem?03:06

nbros652Jordan_U, I added a line to see who the user was, and it said root. I also just heard it produce a beep in the background! I guess it might be working now.03:06
wileeeVoyage, Not really but easy to find, I would think that would be easiest, but I don;t really know your end goal and data working with.03:06

yigalsounds good04:24
KSFTrunning boot-repair04:24
Guest6703In this part I can't help much since each BIOS is different for each Motherboard model. There are 2 options you can take here, both of which are optional since Ubuntu might install without any problems at all. You can either look for an option to disable Secure Boot or an option to disable UEFI. In some cases you will be able to find both, it will show in the BIOS as an option called Secure Boot or Enable UEFI.04:25
Guest6703If you find this options, then depending if you can not install Ubuntu with Secure Boot enable then disable Secure Boot (Remember to report this as a bug using ubuntu-bug shim), to be able to still stay in UEFI mode and also be able to Boot with Ubuntu. In some motherboards, this will be the only option you actually need to change and also will be the only option you see related to UEFI because they will not offer the possibility to disable UEFI.04:26
KSFTas you know, I have disabled secure boot, so that's irrelevant04:29

linuxuz3rif you have a several include dir in the make file and one of the headers in your source resides in the include dir04:55
linuxuz3rwill it compile properly04:55

wafflejockGuest6703: ah sorry read the command wrong04:58
KSFTcan anyone help?04:58
Guest6703how can i make it so it is not read only mode04:59
wafflejockGuest6703: believe it's trying to make the .tar.gz in the local folder but looks like you're in a /cdrom folder04:59
wafflejockGuest6703: do you have write privileges in that folder?05:00
jak2000anyone worked with: ssh-keygen -t rsa   i want copy from server1 to server2 a file without asking a password, how do it?05:01
wafflejockGuest6703: you can, ls -al /cdrom, to see the file ownership/permissions05:01
wileeeKSFT, looks like a bad install, not uefi to start with, and huge errors now. Wait for good help, you've rushed into this a bit.05:01
Guest6703i think so because i can create other things on /cdrom05:02
wafflejockjak2000: nope sorry have only created them then manually copied the public key and put it in authorized_keys on the server05:02
jak2000wafflejock  authorized_keys where is?05:02
jak2000and in wich server? authorized_keys  ?05:03
jak2000see please: http://postimg.org/image/5e385aizd/05:03
jak2000mi scneario05:03
wafflejockjak2000: you just make it in the .ssh folder of the user you want to log in as, so you have your "client" machine the one you want to connect from, where you make the keys, then you have the "server" the computer you want to connect to, you make the private/public key on the client machine then you can cat id_rsa.pub, or whatever the public key is and put it in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys plain text file on the server05:04
jak2000ok i want connect with user jak, but a friend tell me, create on /root/.ssh folder05:04
jak2000its wrong right?05:05
wafflejockyeah pretty sure it should be in the user folder for the user you want to connect as05:05

porekthese were in the last days. but what happened today is my real problem.05:49
aclaudemIs it bad to mix apt-get and synaptic use?05:50
porekI was creating partitions on one flash drive, and next time when I insert it the partition was shown as "unknown"05:50
Latrodectusaclaudem: only if you try to do it at the same time...05:50
Ben64porek: really. you need to give actual details, not stories05:50
porekafter multiple trials, I gave up, thinking first that the problem was with the flash drive05:50
porekBen64, I need to tell what the problem is, right? what do you need to know?05:51
Ben64again, an error message, something more than just you saying things that act weird05:51
porekyeah, I will find it, I guess. but I am telling the problem05:52
jak2000i am try copy a file from server1 to server 2: http://postimg.org/image/5e385aizd/ with ssh-keygen -t rsa cant, i do: 1) in server 1, typed: ssh-keygen -t rsa, generated 2 files on: /home/jak/.ssh id_rsa and id_rsa.pub, 2) next step, i do: cat /home/jak/.ssh/id_rsa.pub and copied the contento to server 2 ton: /home/jak/.ssh/authorized_keys     then server1 file /home/jak/.ssh/id_rsa.pub  is05:52
jak2000exact same on server2: /home/jak/.ssh/authorized_keys   i do this command:  rsync -avzP /backup/tari.sql jak@domain.noip.me:/home/jak/sql/   asked something yes/no, typed yes, and then ask me the jak's password, typed correctly, and the file was copied, rerun again the rsyn command and again ask me a password, wich i am do wrong? thanks05:52
porekand then I inserted 2 more (!) external drives, and saw that the same thing happened to them, too, some partitions that I recently created were all shown as "unknown"05:53
jak2000wafflejock any advice?05:53
poreklike Partition 5, 4GB, unknown05:53
Ben64jak2000: pastebin the actual commands and errors and everything, don't ping random people05:53
Ben64porek: ok i give up on you, good luck05:53
porekcan anyone else help me please?05:54
porekwhat does this "unknown" mean? can I save the data in this partition? this is the critical part for me05:54
nudogeporek: can you pastebin the product of this command 'tail -n 60 /var/log/messages'05:54
poreknudoge, sure05:55

poreknudoge, yes, I see the flash disk, that is the one. but I don't see the other drive that is also connected right now06:01
Ben64jak2000: uh, you should make a new key since you pasted it here06:02
porekbut sdd1,2,3, yes, that is the flash disk that I cannot remove06:02
nudogeporek: try 'sudo blkid'06:02
jak2000Ben64 :) no problem06:03
jak2000i changed something06:03
jak2000why reask me a password?06:03
Ben64jak2000: you might need to restart ssh or something to get the key to start going06:03
jak2000in wich server?06:04
jak2000server1 or server 2?06:04
jak2000or both?06:04

poreknudoge, here it is: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13006755/06:04

poreknudoge, I have gparted06:07
porekdo you think it makes a difference to view the partitions on gparted now?06:07
nudogeand you cant rebuild06:07
poreknudoge, sorry, how do you mean?06:08
poreksorry, I don't understand06:09
nudogewhen you open gparted can you view this disk?06:10
poreknudoge, yes, I can view the disk, but the partition is shown as "unknown" in gparted, too06:10
nudogeyou would have to know what format the disk is in and have the packages that support that format. Or, if you don't care about the data on the disk, right click and format.06:11
poreknudoge, I meant that I could see the disk with "unknown" partition. but I cannot view the flash drive which I cannot unmount.06:11
porektwo different problems at the same time06:12
Guest6703nudoge how do you mean tar tvf backup.tar.gz                               something like                                              sudo tar -cvpzf backuphome.tar.gz /media/it/faad1b8e-1145-4114-a15d-783536747e10/06:13
poreknudoge, I do care about the data. it is critical. but the disk or the problematic partition has been created just like all others until now. I havent done anything new06:13
nudogetar tvf is used to view06:13
nudogeporek: have you tired testdisk?06:13
Guest6703nudoge how do you mean tar tvf backup.tar.gz                               something like                                              sudo tar tvf -cvpzf backuphome.tar.gz /media/it/faad1b8e-1145-4114-a15d-783536747e10/06:14
porekI'd only wish I could solve it by adding some packages. do you think it is the reason?06:14
nudogeGuest6703: no need for -cvpzf to check06:14
nudogejust 'tar tvf backup.tar.gz'06:15
Guest6703nudoge will it check everything then06:15
nudogeporek: no, I think the disk is failing but its a shot06:15
poreknudoge, I haven't tried testdisk yet, I just hoped that something could be done before "data recovery"06:15

Guest6703nudoge but it does not do any good beacause i dont now everything all is settings and things like that06:18
nudogeGuest6703: eh thats how you chech a tar.  You could tar it up again create two output text files for tar tvf and then use diff test1 test2.  barring that process if it doesn't exit in an error its ok.06:19
Guest6703nudoge i want it to check if everything is cloned06:19
poreknudoge, I am finding back the error messages..one most common was this in the last days as I was creating and saving partitions: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12983637/06:20

nudogegood luck06:24
r0xtedyubuntu vs debian?06:25
r0xtedygood morning?06:25
poreknudoge, very bad means I should get my data away from this disk as quickly and carefully as possible?06:25
poreknudoge, sorry, were you replying to me?06:25
Guest6703that makes sense because it is the /home /home i am copying06:26
nudogeporek: ya as in the solution to that error looks like this (do not use this command until the data you wish to maintain is off of the disk) 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc1 count=2048'06:26
nudogewhich means wipe and start over and if dd exits in an error the disk is broken06:27
poreknudoge, does dd itself cause this kind of error? because I used it to wipe the disk of unwanted data before partitioning06:27
nudogeI would use testdisk and try to recover as much as I could first06:28
nudogedont worry about dd yet06:28
porekand I remember that dd ended like "no more space on disk". I'd added this zero parameter.06:29
porekcould that be an error or a normal exit?06:29
Guest6703how can i restore everything from the backup later to /home /home06:29
nudogeporek: thats a good exit06:29

cfhowlettporek, of course.07:08

porekthe partition that I created in the previos session is shown as "unknown"07:13
BuzzardBuzzporek: you have already said that you are unable to mount and look at it. this may be due to corruption that has already happened. the sooner you shut off the suspected bad hardware hardware the less corruption can occurr07:15
BuzzardBuzzyou are possibly forced at this point to have to use disk recovery tools to be able to recover the data07:16
porekBuzzardBuzz, it is partitioned. I don't touch the damaged partition. I copy the files in the still-intact partitions to elsewhere. I hope this doesnt affect the damaged partition07:16

noregretubottu: that's not what i want. my issue is that NSS can't resolve local hosts using their FQDN, and since dmasq is running by default, it might have an issue with the configured nameservers (relayed)07:20
cfhowlettnoregret, if no answer here, ask #ubuntu-server07:21

BuzzardBuzzporek: usually the ram issue will cause problems with all hard drive partitions07:23
porekBuzzardBuzz, but I just need the new drive to be able to move the yet-undamaged files to somewhere safe07:23
noregretcfhowlett: also, i forgot that ubottu is a bot xD07:23
BuzzardBuzzporek: you cant move them to your google drive?07:24
noregretcfhowlett: i figured that out since dig/host can resolve the hosts normally but not e.g. ping/firefox.. so it's NSS issue -> dnsmasq config probably or i'm getting this all wrong =)07:24
porekand for the next two hours or so, the partitions will have to stay as they are, and I think it is better to leave them so than to turn off-on the computer until moving the files to a safer place, right?07:24
porekBuzzardBuzz, I dont have one07:24
cfhowlettnoregret, I've no idea, but server folk muck about with DNS all the time, thus my earlier suggestion.07:25

ST-84As long as the bytes arent overwritten corruption wont happen07:37
akiknoregret: or if that file does not exist, nmcli dev list iface ethN | grep DNS07:37
porekBuzzardBuzz, the drive has yet undamaged partitions, and I can copy the files in them. but just one partition between neighbouring partitions, it is shown as "unknown". that's why I wonder if the data could just be accessed.07:37
BuzzardBuzzporek: something is the cause for the partition table to be not usable. Software that helps fix this is considered disk recovery is what i am thinking07:40
porekBuzzardBuzz, which software is it in this case?07:41
hypermistwhat distro is more user friendly ?, ubuntu or debian07:43
mflowlinux from scratch07:43
akiknoregret: also 'nm-tool | grep DNS' might work07:43
hypermisti need a gui, cause i plan to also game07:43
BuzzardBuzzporek: testdisk was already recommended to you, but first you need a hardware platform that is known working or you will only lose more data instead of recovering any07:43
minitruehypermist: probably ubuntu if you want to install steam, etc07:43
noregretakik: it's not there07:44

hypermistthere isnt 14.10 on the site minitrue ?07:45
hypermistthere is 15.1007:45
hypermistand 14.0407:45
noregretakik: nmcli dev show eno1 | grep DNS -that's what i use, i don't have nm-tool - and that showed me the configured dns servers07:45
akiknoregret: if you query those dns servers directly, are they not returning the correct information?07:46
porekBuzzardBuzz, yes, I will sure not try recovery on the same computer.07:46
noregretakik: they are07:46
noregretakik: using dig/host07:46
porekBuzzardBuzz, I used testdisk -thankfully- a while ago. it was not keeping the names of the recovered files, right?07:47
porekit recovers everything in bulk, as I remember07:47
noregretakik: btw, one them is the local dns server and the other is google's07:48
BuzzardBuzzporek: there are different levels of success depending on the extent of the isssues that are fixable07:48
porekBuzzardBuzz, but in general is it good with pdf files, which is the most common one in my case?07:50
akiknoregret: just for testing, change the hosts: line in /etc/nsswitch.conf to hosts: files dns07:52
noregretakik: ok, do i need to restart some service ?07:54
akiknoregret: no07:54

wbillanyone know how to change stdin from the default soundcard to something else08:00
TJ-wbill: Change the snd driver index order in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf08:01
TJ-wbill: the usual strategy is to set the index of an unwanted default device to -2 to stop it claiming index 0 (the first)08:02
wbilli need it to listen from the usb soundcard i have installed which when i do a arecord -l tells me this :  card 1: Device [C-Media USB Audio Device], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]08:04

wbillthe input mic the mic basiucally from the usb soundcard alll the listing are at -2 i guess : options snd-usb-audio index=-208:05
wbillno there is an onboard at 008:06
TJ-wbill: Oh, sorry, I misread the arecord output!08:06
TJ-wbill: so card 0 is the onboard, and card 1 is the USB device08:06
TJ-wbill: are you recording using the GUI?08:07
wbillcommand line via an icecast2 config for stdin08:07
TJ-wbill: because, in the GUI mixer controls (PulseAudio manager) it is possible to reconfigure which device PA uses as the default, separately for playback and recording08:07
TJ-wbill: if using the command-line programs should accept an argument telling them which ALSA sound device to use08:08

TJ-akik: I see a problem with noregret's testing bpaste data; using 'dig @<upstream DNS>' rather than just 'dig' (which would use the local private NM dnsmasq.08:45
akikTJ-: is it so that because they are using .local as their non-multicast dns domain it messes the thing up?08:45
akikTJ-: maybe changing [notfound=return] to [notfound=continue] would work?08:47
TJ-akik: according to the bpaste noregret changed it to "hosts:          files dns", but the test was aimed at the upstream DNS server, *NOT* localhost (which is the one the NM sets the local nameservers on). If "dig +short svn.company.local" fails, that shows the problem is in the local caching DNS server08:53

TJ-rptb1: "Attempting to install GRUB to a disk with multiple partition labels" means you left the FreeBSD disk label in place10:20
Ben64littlebit: you'd need to do an EOL upgrade first to go from 14.10, which lost support in July, to 15.04, then a normal upgrade to 15.1010:20

Gamoder_Hi everyone, I have the following problem: I think I started a service at port 8081, but strangely I can only access it locally, not even in the same LAN. What can be the cause? I don't think I have installed a firewall10:42
bhuddahGamoder_: check to which ip addresses you bound the service. e.g. with "netstat -tulpen"10:44
Gamoder_it says tcp        0      0*               LISTEN      1000       415802      16580/java10:44
zetheroowould there be a way to make this script only touch the .ssh/known_hosts file in each home directory instead of the entire contents of each home directory ? http://paste.ubuntu.com/13007851/10:45
Gamoder_should it be a LAN IP instead of this local IP?10:45
bhuddahGamoder_: either that or just all local addresses so it'll be *:8081 or 1::808110:45
ikoniazetheroo: just change it to only look at the known hosts file, rather than the directory top level10:45

alteregoahello i got some issues with update-initramfs  a unused kernel12:55
epsilon1okay, sadly, it didnt break my install bjb195912:55
alteregoaits still looking on /var/tmp for some files during update-initramfs12:55
alteregoabut i deleted all that reference in /boot to that unused kernel12:56
alteregoais there some config file that still holds reference to installed kernel12:56
TJ-LMTMFA: it depends on what software you're attaching to the serial terminal (/dev/ttySx), but see "man stty"12:56
bjb1959epsilon1, do you think doing a reinstall of apache2, mysql and php would help?12:58
LMTMFATJ- Thanks, I'll have a look12:59
epsilon1bjb1959, did you alter your apache2 configuration? maybe a module is conflicting with those scripts12:59
TJ-bjb1959: when it breaks consult the various logs under /var/log, /var/log/apache2/ for clues as to why12:59
LMTMFATJ- mind, I've set the baud rate as low as 600 with character interval at 99ms, so it was Really slow in sending data, results were the same. Would you say handshaking is still the place to go looking?13:00
epsilon1bjb1959, TJ- is right... a fresh install in my case works so there is no reason to believeit wouldn't help. but if you significantly altered your apache2 config or sites-enabled then maybe you don't want to do that13:00
bjb1959epsilon1, I did not modify them from what they were in 15.04 no.13:01
epsilon1so it simply the upgrade that borked it... weird. definitely have a look at the log files. systemctl status apache2 can give you some hints as well13:03
epsilon1bjb1959, journalctl -xe may also help you after attempting to start apache213:06
bjb1959epsilon1, I will vnc in, reinstall zoneminder then run systemctl status and tell you the exact fail message. maybe that will help13:06
epsilon1bjb1959, do you not have ssh? :P13:06
epsilon1sorry. I'm trolling13:06
epsilon1also, run tail /var/log/apache2/error.log13:07
bjb1959epsilon1, yes I use putty at work. I can do it from the terminal13:08
epsilon1if something causes apache2 to fail starting, it will show in error.log and that will give you an indication as to which directive is causing the server to abort13:09

jayjoI know of a specific port that is giving a response with telnet, so when I run `telnet host.address.com port` I get a response. If I run `nmap -O host.addresss.com` I get 'all 1000 scanned ports on ... are filtered'. Why the inconsistency?13:26
bekksjayjo: There is no inconsistency, you need to understand what nmap is,how it works, and how to read the output.13:27
epsilon1bjb1959, run "head -222 /etc/apache2/apache2.conf | tail -1" and tell me the output13:28
Chaos_ZeroHow can I change the default file manager for all new users?13:30
jayjo bekks: I'm using the docs, it says that filtered just means it wasn't able to get any information back 'because packet filtering prevents its probes from reaching the port'. Why does that same issue not happen with telnet?13:32
bjb1959epsilon1, that error was because of a line that I added to the end of the config file per a different set of instructions I forgot about. I removed that line and reinstalled. now I get these errors ERR [Unable to run "sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/zmdc.pl check", output is ""]  and Failed to start ZoneMinder CCTV recording and surveillance system.13:37
epsilon1yes, bjb1959.. i am looking into zoneminder docs.13:42
epsilon1maybe www-data doesnt have permission to access some file zoneminder wants, maybe a tmp dir?13:43
bjb1959epsilon1, oops sorry hit enter too quick. zoneminder doesn't work but apache is fine now. I am installing phpmyadmin again to see if it works now. probably need to just delete the old zoneminder database, do a purge, autoremove, clean and reinstall you think?13:44
epsilon1yes, that might do bjb195913:44

DomkelkHello. Can anyone please explain me, how is that I have installed Ubuntu 15.10 on GPT disk, without making a BIOS boot partition, and it still works (boots OK)? Grub displayed the error that there is no boot partition, but the system still boots ok. Thanks.13:49
PeanutHi, I'm trying to install the ZFS that's included in Wily (15.10). But the DKMS fails with 'Please make sure the kmod spl devel <kernel> package for your distro is installed." I can't seem to find that package, any suggestions?13:50
TJ-Domkelk: is the system UEFI? maybe there is an EFI SP?13:50
hypermistis it better to use 15.10 or 14.04 for games/everyday ?13:50
cfhowlettDomkelk, bios boot partition???  I don't have on of those either.  perhaps you meant UEFI13:51
DomkelkThe system is BIOS.13:51
cfhowletthypermist, 14.04 is long term support.  15.10 is not.13:51
hypermistAlright 14.04 IT IS :D13:51
Peanuthypermist: I'm running 15.04 for gaming/work. You don't need LTS for your desktop, you get much newer version of software if you keep tracking current ubuntu.13:52
hypermistPeanut, oh?13:52
hateballhypermist: I use LTS for servers, latest release for desktop/gaming13:53
PeanutYou get a much newer libreoffice etc. with 15.10 than you get with 14.04, of course. LTS is great if you run a server in production and don't want to upgrade twice a year. But for desktop use, why not track the latest releases?13:53
parTJ-, I found the culprit. Had killprocs in /etc/rc2.d enabled somehow13:53
TJ-Domkelk: then there is probably a legacy blocklist somewhere.13:53
TJ-par: Ouch!13:53
parNO IDEA where did that came from13:53
ST-84It only sucks that ubuntu server does not support 32-bit anymore.13:53
hypermistoh okay hateball, but where are you seeing 15.04 ?13:53
cfhowlettST-84, 32 bit computers are going the way of the dodo.  deal with it.13:53
hateballhypermist: 15.04 will be EOL soon, 15.10 is what you want13:54
TJ-ST-84: so what is this? http://releases.ubuntu.com/wily/ubuntu-15.10-server-i386.iso13:54
hypermistoh damn people confusing me hateball hahahahah13:54
ST-84TJ-, It was not on the main page13:54
ST-84How could i have known13:54
TJ-ST-84: http://releases.ubuntu.com/wily/13:54
ST-84I have it running on Gentoo though so im fine for now.13:54
PeanutSeconded, you want 15.10 - I just didn't upgrade yet, so I can only attest to how well things work with 15.04.13:54
PeanutSteam runs great (TF2, KSP).13:54
jayjoyikes, just got an email for running nmap. didn't know this was frowned upon13:55
DomkelkTJ-: What do you mean? I have whiped the disk, made it GPT and only created swap,root,home partitions. While installing Ubuntu, grub complained that there is no boot partition and some error, but after restart system booted ok.13:55
hypermistwell, /me checks to make sure he got his important files from windows13:57
TJ-Domkelk: Well, GRUB must be finding the core.img from somewhere. You sure its not from another device?13:57
DomkelkTJ-: Sure. No other devices or disks. The system is BIOS for sure. The disk is GPT. I'm not complaining, just want to learn how is this possible :)13:59
ioriaDomkelk, have you checked sudo parted -l  ?14:00
TJ-Domkelk: Well, if the disk were fresh, it wouldn't be, since a GPT config needs a BIOS boot partition for grub-install to work. Like I said it sounds like there's a stray core.img blocklist being loaded14:00
DomkelkTJ-: located core.img in /boot/grub/i386-pc/core.img.14:00
Domkelkioria: yes. only one disk with three partitions (swap, root, home)14:01
TJ-Domkelk: right, but grub-install takes that file and puts it in a blocklist, or in the BIOS boot partition14:01
ioriaDomkelk, partition table ? msdos ?14:01
Domkelkioria: table is gpt14:02
parTJ-, last night i was very tired and it was very late, and I was using sysv-rc-conf ..  Must have accidently pressed space and marked killprocs to start in runlevel 2 :)))14:02
parthis is the fail of the year oh lol14:02
Peanutpar: well done :-)14:02
TJ-par: That'll teach ya :p14:02
paryeah. go to bed. my wife is always right.14:03
TJ-sysv-rc-conf vs wife... and sysv-rc-conf won!? :O14:03
ioriaDomkelk, gpt confused it ... it expected a uefi14:03
JohnnyComeL8lyI don't quite understand what you did, but I'm sure I've done some stuff on par with that.14:03
TJ-grub-install has no problem with GPT, regardless of UEFI or BIOS14:05
TJ-Domkelk: best thing if you want to know where core.img is loading from is disassemble the boot.img code in the MBR14:06
elian_hey all, just a simple question, I'd like ubuntu to boot without waiting for user input if errors are found on the root filesystem. Right now it waits for the user to enter F (fix), S (skip), etc.... It would be nice to have ubuntu always go with F (fix) without waiting for user input.14:06
DomkelkTJ-: so i guess it used blocklists. says it's unreliuble on the internets...14:06
elian_is that possible ?14:06
TJ-Domkelk: For MBR the blocklist is the standard way, usually starting in sector 1 through to start of partition #114:07
DomkelkTJ-: Well, the disk is GPT for sure.14:07
TJ-Domkelk: GPT starts in sector 1, so I can't imagine core is there!14:08
OerHekselian_, choose fix, so after the fix the fsck does not come back. ( hopefully)14:12
runelindanyone know of ppas that track more recent OpenSSH?  I'd like to get version 714:13

VoyageI am using 'audio-recorder' in kubuntu but it is giving  a huge buzz sound in the background.

cfhowlettVoyage, then you are likely getting electromag static.  it happens.  this is easily fixed with audacity.14:18
Domkelkioria: I guess it used blocklists. Now I just need to understand what it is :) Thanks for help!14:19
DomkelkTJ-: Thanks to you too :)14:19
UniFreakit's only me or not, I find unity is buggier than windows desktop14:21
TJ-Domkelk: in case you ever want to figure those things out, offset 0x5B of the MBR code contains the sector number of the 1st sector of the core.img. That offset can vary a but, but for, say, a BIOS Boot partition starting at sector 34, that value would be "22 00 00 00" (a hex long little-endian) which is 0x00000022 which is decimal 3414:21

ubottuUbik_: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience15:36
joltmananyone know the correct method to configure a secondary IP on the primary ETH adapter?15:36
JohnnyComeL8lycfhowlett: Is there no room for expressing discontent with non-libre software?15:36
joltmani'm having issues15:36
cfhowlettJohnnyComeL8ly, advocating for non -ubuntu OS is beyond expressing discontent15:36
Ubik_cfhowlett: is it possible to download a file using firefox? as cd is read only (in Fact i use a usb live disk)?15:37
JohnnyComeL8lyIt is a very similar OS... it is just stripped down.15:37
cfhowlettUbik_, details15:37

cfhowlett!flavors | JohnnyComeL8ly, we are here to support these flavors.  perhaps your talents could be better utilized in the trisquel channels??15:38
ubottuJohnnyComeL8ly, we are here to support these flavors.  perhaps your talents could be better utilized in the trisquel channels??: !Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.15:38
cfhowlettUbik_, how much ram do you have?15:38
JohnnyComeL8lycfhowlett: I'm pretty sure you'd rather have me talking about another libre distro very similar to Ubuntu, than whine about how Ubuntu isn't libre....15:38
Ubik_cfhowlett: 1 gb15:39
JohnnyComeL8lyAnd, I'll leave it at that.15:39
cfhowlettUbik_, it's possible to run a live session ubuntu with 1 GB, but you'd find lubuntu or xubuntu more snappy15:39
cfhowlettas they are optimized for low spec hardware like yours15:39
Latrodectusi get it that ubuntu has to make money, but this is plain stupid, and totally against everything that linux stands for...15:40
cfhowlettLatrodectus, fair critique - please continue in ubuntu-offtopic.  thanks.15:40
Latrodectusi will15:40
ioriaUbik_, how did you  do   the iso ?15:40
calvindo you have any idea how can I chat on this irc channel in a terminal?15:41
Ubik_cfhowlett:i tried unity ubuntu and kubuntu and gnome ubuntu,  works well until I try video15:41
cfhowlettcalvin, irrsi is a text based irc client, I think.15:41
Ubik_ioria: using yumi from pendrive15:41
calvinthanks for the suggestion15:41
calvini'll look it up15:41

porekhello again, I've had some partition damages this morning, as I talked to people here. I was informed that I could dd the damaged partitions / drives to see if they are permanently corrupted or can be used again, like if dd exits with an error, then it means the disk / drive is damaged..can I safely assume that?15:45

ubottuUbik_: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.15:46
Ubik_ioria: ok np   32bits only i guess?15:46

herrkinhello, community I have some questions for you. the first one is, is there a way to make a user so that it only has permissions to edit network settings? and another thing is, I want to protect the recovery of the password via grub but still let the system start skipping the grub. how can I do that?15:48
ikoniaherrkin: do you understand how illogical that is15:48
Ubik_ok    bb then15:49
artoisherrkin: yes; doesn't it do that already?15:49
ikonia"you want to project grub" - great thats fine, but you also want the ability to bypass it, how can you have both ?15:49
Ubik_thx for help15:49
cfhowlettherrkin, you can give users permissions such as network management.15:49
herrkinikonia, what part?15:49
ikoniaherrkin: securing grub but also having the ability to bypass it15:49
herrkinI just want the system to start but I dont want any user to have access to the console to recover the password, I have done that in the pass so its a security issue, ikonia15:50
=== genii is now known as zombiegenii

Picisendja: This is the official support channel for Ubuntu Linix16:17
Latrodectusherrkin: you're trying to edit grub right?16:17
Picier, Linux16:17
herrkinLatrodectus, the question was how do I prevent a user to change the password via grub16:17
herrkinso that they cant gain access to root16:18
sendjawould you exlpan more pls ?16:18
Latrodectusherrkin: what's your threat model?16:18
herrkinI dont know what you mean, Latrodectus16:18
Latrodectusherrkin: who exactly are you trying to prevent from rooting your device, and how hard will they try?16:18
Latrodectusdepending on that i can suggest counter measures16:19
herrkinI think they would only try looking at the files on my home folder (for the code) via putting the disk on another machine16:19
herrkinthe home folder is encrypted so I think thats safe16:19
Latrodectusherrkin: do you need a disk drive?16:19
herrkinand another thing is rooting via grub16:20
Latrodectusalso can you put a password on your bios?16:20
herrkinI have done that, I dont remember exactly how  but via grub I just changed it16:20
herrkinbut I need the service to start without aking for a password16:20
herrkinjust start the services16:20
Latrodectusherrkin: it's usually via the bootup for the chipset16:20
herrkinok I remember I edited something via grub console and changed the root pass so I could log in.16:21
herrkinthats what I want to prevent people doing16:21
Latrodectusherrkin: then what you want to do is encrypt your disk16:22
Latrodectusbut you would need to reinstall your os...16:22
TJ-Latrodectus: this PC isn't herrkin's it is a clients, on their network, in their premises. Threat model is them obtaining source-code of the service/product herrkin licenses to them16:23
herrkinor messing with the system16:23
herrkindatabases, things like that16:23

TJ-Latrodectus: they want log-in access to 'change the IP' and apparently DHCP is a no-go. I've suggested a cheap router in front of this PC that they can access16:25
yao_ziyuanhi all. just switched from fedora to xunbuntu :)16:25
Guest29153i need help bij install indicator weather in lubuntu 14.0416:26
yao_ziyuanbut one problem: the boot screen is all black. my laptop has the same xunbuntu but it can display the "xubuntu" boot screen fine.16:26
TJ-!modeset | yao_ziyuan16:26
TJ-!nomodeset | yao_ziyuan16:26
ubottuyao_ziyuan: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter16:26
flame_geeklittle help16:26
flame_geekwhich one is the best IDE for vala ?16:27
yao_ziyuanvia this article (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/BlankScreen) i know it must be my video card. but following that article's instructions, i can't find my grub's menu.lst file. i guess ubuntu today uses another boot manager.16:27
Latrodectusherrkin: also i would suggest unplugging the other devices that are not needed for device usage, and then locking the case16:27
Latrodectus^if you are allowed to do that...16:27
drdozerhi - my ubuntu box forgets that my network printer exists16:27
Latrodectusanother vector that you might want to consider is a hack via network boot, so turn that off16:27
Latrodectus(if you don't need that)16:28
vijuI have a text editor which I separately downloaded and kept in home folder. Can I make a link to it /usr/sbin? Okay I am trying to use the application as any other application that comes preinstalled with ubuntu.16:28
drdozerI can install the drivers and print a test page, but when I close the printer finding dialogue, it forgets the printer16:28
TJ-yao_ziyuan: Edit "/etc/default/grub" and the line "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="..." and add " nomodeset"16:28
herrkinLatrodectus, why?16:28
TJ-yao_ziyuan: Then, do "sudo update-grub"16:28
=== rahulprodev is now known as prodev
Latrodectusherrkin: paranoia16:29
herrkinLatrodectus, because they can boot via usb stick for example and gain access to the system?16:29
drdozerit is an epson xp-33216:29
Latrodectusherrkin: or just wipe the system16:29
porekhello everyone, summing up my recent question, can I test the health of a flash drive by applying dd command to wipe it and see if completes without errors?16:29
herrkinLatrodectus, they dont have anything in there anyway, only ethernet connected16:29
Latrodectusherrkin: good, then the cheep router will solve this problem16:30
herrkinjust let them edit the router to cope with network problem. the rest is only I can edit.16:30
TJ-porek: in theory, but it might accept writes but fail on reads, so you also need to try reading back from it16:30
yao_ziyuanTJ-: done. will now restart to see.16:30
porekTJ- how can I do that?16:33
porekI mean reading back16:33
akikporek: you can use badblocks to run the test16:33
yao_ziyuanTJ-: your solution partially solved the problem. at startup, it's a black screen a little while and then the xubuntu boot screen (with a progress indicator running clockwise). the screen resolution is not my monitor's highest one (1920x1080), and this wrong resolution persists after login to desktop.16:34
porekakik, thank you, this looks like the tool!16:35
porekakik, I found that I needed to install e2fsprogs, right?16:35
porekand then sudo badblocks -vsn /dev/sdX ?16:35
akikporek: just follow the package manager's instructions16:36
TJ-yao_ziyuan: Right; that's due to the kernel's video mode-setting being disabled! I'm afraid this is a common issue with no easy solution. In theory, the black screen during boot should be replaced by the X server GUI greeter display without 'nomodeset' - did you never get the greeter?16:36
Biosphereanyone here can help with bootsplash grub to display on all monitor outputs?16:36
porekakik, ok, I will start with it in a little bit16:37
akikporek: -w is for write test16:37
=== james is now known as Guest89896
=== amir_ is now known as Guest15534
TJ-yao_ziyuan: another possible fix is to dispense with the graphical splash screen during boot (which causes GRUB to but the video device into a grpahical mode) which later gives the kernel problems switching modes. The fix for that is not "nomodeset" but instead, removing the comment # from in front of "GRUB_TERMINAL=console" in "/etc/default/grub" and "sudo update-grub"16:38
yao_ziyuanxubuntu's display settings now says my current resolution is 1400x1050, which is obviously wrong.16:38
Biosphereno I want the graphical on three monitors during boot time16:38
Biosphereor all outputs16:38
TJ-Biosphere: not possible; grub only drives the primary device through the BIOS/Firmware interfaces16:39
yao_ziyuannow i'm trying to remove "splash" and "nomodeset" from my GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT value.16:39
Biospherewell if I use the ubuntu amd drivers it works but when I use the proprieroty driver it turns one off16:39
Grimbleeà l'huile16:39
porekakik, so should I add -w , too?16:40
TJ-Biosphere: that's not GRUB though, that's Linux by then16:41
BiosphereTJ-: so I guess its using the X11 driver for bootsplash?16:41
TJ-Biosphere: which GPU and drivers is the system using?16:41
TJ-Biosphere: no, X has nothing to do with bootsplash16:41
TJ-Biosphere: the package plymouth handles boot-time splash-screen16:42
=== marshal0605 is now known as marshal0505
yao_ziyuanremoving "splash" and "nomodeset" now gives me a text boot screen. i see "ACPI PCC failed." the screen solution is right now.16:42
TJ-Biosphere: I'm not sure if, or how, fglrx can be told to enable all outputs. Your assumption is you want all outputs cloned16:42
BiosphereTJ-: cloned only for the bootspolash desktop UI is not like that which is fine once I hit X16:43
TJ-yao_ziyuan: don't worry about "ACPI PCC failed" - an over-zealous kernel dev left that message in when they shouldn't have. It was later demoted to only show when debugging16:43
TJ-Biosphere: well, that'd be a plymouth issue then. For drivers that don't clone the outputs it'd need logic that could enable clone mode16:43
yao_ziyuanTJ-: yeah. now i only wonder if i can get a boot splash screen for my old video card.16:43
BiosphereTJ-: whenever I use fglrx-updates the framebuffer drivers seems to be over written with AMD version or something....16:44
yao_ziyuanlspci says my video driver is "VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Caicos [Radeon HD 6450/7450/8450 / R5 230 OEM]"16:44
BiosphereTJ-: open source drivers worked perfectly for bootsplash but of course grappy for desktop gaming16:44
TJ-Biosphere: probably, you can't have the KMS and a FB driver fighting without some strange things happening :)16:44
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: You just trying to text boot for grub?16:45
TJ-Biosphere: always the case! as i say, if the fglrx has an option to enable cloning (without needing xrandr) and plymouth can be 'taught' to use that16:45
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: text boot (removing the "splash" option) runs fine. but i want a graphical boot.16:45
TJ-yao_ziyuan: Do you boot it that much!?16:45
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: you mean the bootsplash?16:45
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: yes16:46
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: your only getting low res right?16:46
bviktorwhy does ubuntu software center (or any other gui needing root rights) ask for a specific user?16:46
bviktori have sudo rights from AD but it asks for a local user password16:46
bviktorthat's just stupid16:46
Biosphereyou need root permissinos for some of then bviktor16:46
bviktori DO have root permissions16:47
bviktorthat's the problem16:47
Biosphereya but you are actually logged in as root or just have to same perms?16:47
bekksbviktor: No. You have the right to get the root role using sudo.16:47
bviktori have an AD user with sudo rights, but instead it asks for the password of a local user16:47
bekksBiosphere: you dont need to be logged in as root.16:47
Biosphereif your in a gui try gksudo software-manager16:47
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: right. if i use "quiet splash nomodeset", i do see a graphical bootsplash but it's resolution is wrong (a very wide font) and this wrong resolution remains after i log into the desktop. xubuntu says the resolution is set to 1400x1050 but my LCD's native resolution is 1920x1080.16:47
TJ-bviktor: is the system using "libpam-krb5" to authenticate to AD?16:47
bekksBiosphere: "sudo rights" == "you have the right to execute things using sudo" != "you are root already".16:48
bviktorand a lot of other components16:48
bviktormost likely krb5 and pam too16:48
bviktorterminal sudo works flawlessly16:48
bviktorbut in the gui it won't let me specify a username16:48
Biospherebviktor: try gksudo before the command otherwise I not sure what else will help16:48
TJ-bviktor: no, it uses the current username16:48
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: did you try the VGA=791 or whatever it is for 1920x108016:48
bviktori'm logged in as viktor.berke16:48

bviktorbviktor is the local user16:49
Biosphereit works for me16:49
Biosphereotherwise you can try uncomment GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x108016:49
=== main is now known as leghead
bviktorand like i said, sudo -l lists me as being permitted to run all commands with sudo16:50
bviktorand it pretty much works flawlessly in the terminal16:50
bviktormaybe... if i add another local user, it'll let me pick username16:50
Biosphereand add GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep to grub config file16:50
vaderI can boot only to the five Ubuntu dots where it hangs16:50
bviktorand then i can enter my AD username instead16:50
porekakik, so the whole form is like sudo badblocks -vsn -w /dev/sdX  ?16:50
TJ-yao_ziyuan: the reason you needed nomodeset was because GRUB put the video device into graphics mode. You'll end up back in the black screen situation if you have GRUB in GFX mode and don't use "nomodeset"16:50
TJ-bviktor: how about if you use "gksudo gedit" does that also work, or prompt you like Software Center?16:51
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: make sure your GRUB_CMDLINX_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" and then try GRUB_GFXMODE=1920x1080 and add GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep16:51
bviktorlemme check16:52

bviktori guess it's some gnome package16:54
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: ya uncomment that and put 1920x108016:54
Biosphereand add the GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep under it16:54
bviktorTJ-, yup, gksudo works perfectly16:54
vaderIf someone get a chance, possible to revert back to 15.04 --> 15.10 will not boot (locked out)16:54
TJ-bviktor: that suggests Software Center is doing something different and not using lib_pam as we'd expect it to. Bug report time I think!16:55
bviktorTJ-, i'm pretty sure it's just because of that stupid assumtpion that there can only be local sudo rights16:55
bviktorand frankly, that's true in 99% of the cases16:55
bviktorit's not too often that you get those rights delegated from a directory serve16:56
bviktorbut lemme check my theory about the 2nd user16:56
bviktori think it won't let me pick a username because there's only 1 (local) user that is admin16:56
bviktorso basically it wants to outsmart me hehe16:57
TJ-bviktor: everything authentication-wise should go through libpam. Have you check /var/log/auth.log for clues16:57
bviktorbut there's not an auth attempt to begin with16:57
bviktoroh how stupid16:58
bviktori added another user16:58

Biosphereyao_ziyuan: no bootsplash but the resolution is 1920x1080?16:59

Netekissue is with one log file I have the date in 01/Sep/2015 format and another I have the date set as 09/01/201517:04

LisaaaabI get no crontab for root17:06
BiosphereLisaaaab: ok ummm... one sec17:07
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: Ok your file looks good... but you there is no bootsplash.... which driver you using? flgrx-updates?17:07
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: i'm using whatever video driver the Xubuntu installation gave me.17:07
LisaaaabIt is an week old 15.10 I just installed Postfix Dovecot Nginx and Maria17:08
nglpx1Lisaaaab, try 'sudo updatedb' as root17:08
tewardLisaaaab: what do you mean by 'no crontab for root'17:08
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: how do i see my driver version? i don't think it comes from AMD because it's set up by a Xubuntu installation.17:08
Biosphereteward: I ask to check the root crontab17:08
LisaaaabFailed to generate /var/cache/locate/locatedb.n17:09
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: there the problemt then... one sec I'll get you the command todo17:09
nglpx1Lisaaaab, that's the issue17:09
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: type gksudo software-properties-gtk in console window in gui and click on the additional drivers tab17:09
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: installl the fglrx-updates and then reboot and see17:09
LisaaaabAnd now17:10
nglpx1Lisaaaab, have you done it as root?17:10
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: interesting.17:11
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: there is also an additional driver offered to me from Intel (intel-microcode). should i use it as well?17:11
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: what card you have exactly? HD6850?17:11
jayjoIs there a way to find my internal ip from the command line?17:11
LisaaaabYes all as root17:11
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: try the video card first and see17:11
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Caicos [Radeon HD 6450/7450/8450 / R5 230 OEM]17:12

nemoI have an external HD that has an EFI partition. iomega eGo 1.5TiB - I was hoping to boot off of it.  Easiest way to setup a quick boot seemed to me to use usb-creator-gtk17:12
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: i would try the flgrx-updates first if that doesn't work try fglrx17:12
nemoUnfortunately it fails on boot manager setup - I'm guessing due to EFI - hard to say, this eGo seems to support on-disc encryption and exposes a 2nd magic "CD" drive w/ disc encryption exe so probably has some extra stuff going on.17:13
nickenchuggets__does anyone know how I might be able to test fail2ban?17:13
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: one of those should do the trick you may have to COMMENT OUT the GRUB_GFXMODE and PAYLOAD lines after the install if it doesn't work but.... try just installed the fglrx-updates and rebooting first17:13
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: so i now selected flgrx-updates and closed that window. should i restart now?17:13
nemoI was wondering if usb-creator-gtk was UEFI aware, and if not, what the best approach might be to install to it17:13
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: yes reboot did it say it was activated?17:13
nemoI'm thinking I could also setup the installer on a flash drive, boot to that, then install to the external HD normally, but that seemd a bit convoluted17:14
nglpx1Lisaaaab, try to create thet directory manually17:14
nemowas hoping I could just install from my current desktop17:14
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: oops, i haven't clicked "Apply changes". now i'm doing it.17:14
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: ok17:14
Biospherenemo: you trying to make a bootable UEFI stick?17:14
nemoBiosphere: I guess basically that except replace stick with 1.5TiB of spinning rust ☺17:15
yao_ziyuani was thinking ubuntu/xubuntu would be home (fedora wasn't nice to me) but now it seems... way to go17:15
nemoBiosphere: wanted an external drive for storing stuff that I could also boot off of17:15
yao_ziyuanor it's just my pc getting too old17:15
Biospherenemo: so a persistant setup or not persistant?17:16
Biospherenemo: I usually use dd for my usb stick iso stuff17:17
nemoBiosphere: hm...  I'm really not too particular, I'd like to have it still usable as a filesystem, ideally w/o all the permission hassles that ext4 entails, so probably sticking w/ fat3217:18
nemoBiosphere: that's why I thought the usb-startup-disk thing would be perfect17:18
nemoI guess I could blow away the EFI stuff too...17:18
nemowould rather not screw w/ the drive too much though, in case others want to use it17:18
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: this time it's a lot better: i see the graphical bootsplash (although the aspect ratio is wide (the logo looks wide)) and then i get a desktop with the right (1920x1080) resolution.17:18
nemowould be nice to keep their builtin stuff working17:18
nemocould maybe use ntfs. crappy filesystem, but less crappy than fat32, and no permissions issues17:19
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: ok... so you need the bootsplash to be proper resolution... sometimes I can never get that to be the proper resolution... whats yout TTY's resolution like now CTRL+ALT+F1?17:19

yao_ziyuanthis time it's the same: the bootsplash is a wide-font "xubuntu" logo (and a ellipse running clockwise), but the desktop resolution is right (1920x1080).17:27
yao_ziyuannormally you should see this xubuntu boot screen: http://www.ubuntu-pomoc.org/wp-content/uploads/Xubuntu-3.png17:28

siruthe installer asks for the keymap after you enter the encryption password17:49
siruit should be the other way around17:49
vijuBiosphere, does that require me to restart or anything? I haven't done such kind of restart work for nominal stuff as this.17:49

OerHekslinocisco, gwget was written for gnome2, that project is dead. https://projects.gnome.org/gwget/17:52
TJ-siru: the keymap used to accept the encryption pass-phrase would be the one selected when the installer boot started. The mapping chosen *during* installer options selection is only written to /target/17:52
linociscoBiosphere, fat rat is not ok, GWget is not ok. what to install next?17:52
ulrichardafter upgrading to wily werwolf, my taskbar and launcher bar are gone. How can I get them back?17:52

linociscoOerHeks, what should I install as download manager?17:52
Biospherelinocisco: not sure...17:52
TJ-!info uget | linocisco17:54
ubottulinocisco: uget (source: uget): easy-to-use download manager written in GTK+. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.10.4-1ubuntu1 (wily), package size 218 kB, installed size 1017 kB17:54
Biosphereviju: ok you have to add a .desktop file into your /usr/share/applications17:55
jayjo_nemo: can you explain round-robin dns?17:55
siruTJ-: thanks ... there was only a language option if I remember it correctly17:55
Biosphereviju: so I copied the leafpad.desktop file and changed it to in my case geany.desktop and changes the respective parameters to launch the app you want17:55
siruwill try a install in a vm and check17:56
vijuBiosphere, thanks, I was just checking the contents as you said.17:56
TJ-siru: The very first installer boot option is usually an icon with a keyboard bottom-centre - at least for El Torito/MBR boots. EFI boots use GRUB and don't get that, I seem to recall17:56
Biosphereviju: that should do what you want that way.... mine shows up in the context menu I don't have to click open with... but you may have to17:57
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: fglrx and fglrx-updates seem to have the same bootsplash. anyway, this one is good enough for me: the progress bar is a circle a little widened (a slight ellipse).17:58
wicopeWhat is the name of the program default Ubuntu when i select text can paste with the middle mouse button?17:58
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: ya sometimes I get that problem too with wide bootsplash on some of my amd cards... but glad you got it working a little better.. fyi fglrx-updates are better for you17:59
yao_ziyuanit's quite reasonable that the bootsplash doesn't have an animation exactly for my native resolution (1920x1080), so it uses an appoximate one.17:59
Biospherewicope: depends you in terminal windows or just file manager or something?17:59
nemojayjo_: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round-robin_DNS17:59
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: yes, i'm choosing fglrx-updates as my final driver.17:59
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: ok good...17:59
nemojayjo_: it's used for load balancing and automatical failover18:00
TJ-yao_ziyuan: the plymouth-theme-* has a 'scale' script for the logo, so it should centre + ensure 1:1 aspect ratio, unless the underlying video mode is stretching from, say, 1440 video res to 1920 screen res18:01
=== EriC^^ is now known as explosive
yao_ziyuanBiosphere, TJ-: thank you both for helping me with this problem18:01
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: no problem glad to help18:01
yao_ziyuanTJ-: so you have a clue to get a better result?18:02
linociscoTJ-, thanks. i m downloading ubuntu iso using uget18:02
TJ-yao_ziyuan: as I said earlier, use GRUB cmdline mode to run its vbeinfo tool and find out what video resolutions GRUB can use18:03
wicopeBiosphere: thanks, examples: i select text in firefox, atom, nautilus, gedit, .. and can paste with the middle mouse button. What's the name of this program?18:03
TJ-yao_ziyuan: you hold down the Shift key BEFORE the boot gets to GRUB, grub will detect it and show the menu, then you can press 'C' to get the cmdline18:03
Biospherewicope: I believe its in your mouse config program not sure whats its called though... the terminal sometimes have seperate option for pasting18:03
explosivewicope: does shift+insert work to paste?18:04
Latrodectususually shift+ctrl+v works18:04
jayjo_so to check if this is round-robin, is there a way to list all ips for a server?18:05
Biospherethis all depends on the gui your using... for example i3 doesn't work the same18:05
wicopeBiosphere: ok, i check the config of awesome-wm18:05
wicopeexplosive: yes shift+insert work to paste18:06
Biospherewicope: I believe so.... its under your shortcut keys or mouse options... if I remember correctly18:06
wicopeLatrodectus: yes shift+ctrl+v works too18:06
wicopethanks all bye18:07
Biospherewicope: laterz18:07
Latrodectuswicope: it's standard in all operating systems to have shift+ctrl+v as paste for terminal/cmd18:07
yao_ziyuanTJ-: and then enter 'vbeinfo'?18:08
TJ-yao_ziyuan: correct18:08
yao_ziyuanok. doing it now.18:08
TJ-yao_ziyuan: type "help" first you'll see all the commands18:08
samb1hi, I'm in the process of porting a big perl application with many dependencies from one release to another (actually from lucid to precise or newer distros) the thing is with a lot of the legacy stuff it's possibly breaking due to being built with newer versions of things in precise , just wondering is it possibly to use apt to install older versions of various deb packages ?18:09
Seveassamb1: if you want old, stay on an old Ubuntu.18:09
explosivewicope: you can set it with xinput or an xorg config maybe18:09
TJ-samb1: not a good idea; I'd recommend creating a chroot environment for the 'old' release on the 'new' supported release18:10
explosivestill interested to get the middle mouse button working?18:10
Biospheresamb1: you can do apt-get cache to install older paackages but be carefuyl you can break your system that wya18:10
samb1but lucid isn't supported anymore right?18:10
samb1Biosphere: it's ok I can spin up new systems just trying to figure out what works best18:11
yao_ziyuanTJ-: vbeinfo gave a long list of resolutions but none of them is my native resolution (1920x1080). at last vbeinfo says: "Preferred mode: 1920x1080".18:13
samb1so with apt if I do something like apt-cache policy libsome-package-perl it will give me the options as per the repos, but typically the options won't go that far back18:14
TJ-yao_ziyuan: so GRUB can see 1920x1080 then18:14
TJ-yao_ziyuan: in which case using it for gfx_mode should be OK, and with 'keep' linux should maintain it. Which suggests plymouth has an issue, or else the video driver is arbitrarily resetting the mode18:15
yao_ziyuanTJ-: first there is a long list of available modes like "0x1e6 1920 x 1440 x 32 ..."18:15
yao_ziyuanthen "EDID version: 1.3"18:15
yao_ziyuanthen "Preferred mode: 1920x1080"18:16
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: fi you add vga= the code in the cmdline in grub you can try and fore that resolution18:16
yao_ziyuanmaybe 1920x1080 is "preferred" but not "available"?18:16
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: 1920x1080 doesn't have a "code" like "0x1e6" for 1920x144018:16
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: oh then your sol with the VGA= option then18:17
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: what is sol?18:17

explosivedid you try adding the =keep to grub's keep variable? yao_ziyuan18:24
yao_ziyuanexplosive: yes18:24
TJ-yao_ziyuan: it's plymouth, of the fglxr driver, in all likelyhood.18:25
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: what do you get when you do xrandr --query18:25
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: there is a 1920x1080      60.0*+18:26
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: ok well thats good then... you using DVI or VGA or HDMI to monitor?18:27
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: the full output is here: http://www.pastebin.ca/322696918:27
yao_ziyuanBiosphere: it's not HDMI. it's a Dell Inspiron 580s bought in 2011 -- the typical desktop pc connected to a 21 or 23" LCD.18:28
yao_ziyuanthe LCD is also part of the Dell package.18:28
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: if you don't see a 1920x1080 when you do vbeinfo like TJ said then i think you SOL = Shit Out of Luck18:29
yao_ziyuanit's a VGA cable i suppose. it's whatever is typical for a desktop pc.18:29
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: you'll have to find a resolution that has the same aspect ratio for the bootsplash to not be widened18:30
yao_ziyuano, now i notice that when vbeinfo outputs, there is an asterisk before 1400x1050:18:32
yao_ziyuan* 0x146 1400 x 1050 x 32 (5632)18:32
yao_ziyuanwhich means grub at that time uses that resolution.18:33
TJ-yao_ziyuan: that'll be active mode if I recall correctly, but you also had 1920x1080 as preferred, so it should be used18:33
=== goddard1 is now known as goddard
yao_ziyuanTJ-: but 1920x1080 doesn't appear in the "normal list"18:33
yao_ziyuanthe "normal list" is the list above the line "EDID version: 1.3"18:34
Biosphereyao_ziyuan: did you try grub-customizer18:34
TJ-yao_ziyuan: Ahhh, that would explain it18:34

ubottuGuest96311: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

I had it working fine on ubuntu 15.04 but since updating to 15,10 I can't seem to get it to work. any ideas?19:29
linuxey_wow. 2000? cmon19:29
prashant_123456hello all19:29
prashant_123456is there any way to detect improper shutdown or system crash ?19:29
artoiswhat good would it do you?19:30
linuxey_At that point, I'd just go with a source based build lol Arch and Thin station19:30
daftykinslinuxey_: Arch isn't practical for the workplace19:30
daftykinsi'd learn to compile and make the packages.19:30
linuxey_oh.. don't get me wrong - i've built many packages from source and all my own code.. just not in ubuntu19:31
linuxey_i grew up on RH19:31
daftykinsprashant_123456: why are you highlighting people that aren't talking to you?19:31
prashant_123456daftykins: oh sorry19:31
prashant_123456daftykins: its my mistake sir19:32
daftykinsprashant_123456: so can you give more detail about what you're trying to achieve?19:32
prashant_123456daftykins: yes i enabled irssi sound notifications and just trying if anyone pings me19:33
daftykinswhat the...19:34
keepguessingI am on ubuntu 15.10 and wanted to install latest vim with python 3 support. apart from installing from source is there a way around?19:35
RidgewingHi I generated this hardware report : http://pastebin.ca/3227053 which reports the hardware specs of my laptop. How do I pastebin this successfully in xHTML ?19:35
Ridgewingdaftykins: Hi I'm from the UK too ! 'memer you from #ubuntu-uk.19:35
daftykinsRidgewing: hi there19:36
daftykinskeepguessing: find a PPA.19:36
daftykinsRidgewing: though technically i'm not from there ;)19:36
=== master is now known as Guest70898
Ridgewingdaftykins: Yes I'm slightly outta my eelement on #ubuntu to. Is that what you meant ?19:37
OerHeksRidgewing, that takes ages to load here, paste.ubuntu.com has got a plain text option19:37
linuxey_keepguessing: welcome to my world. seems like the favored method is to backport yourself19:38
daftykinsRidgewing: nah just not from the UK.19:38
linuxey_followed by PPA19:38
RidgewingIcan't use pste.ubuntu.com - 'cos it says "scripts aren't allowed" there.19:38
daftykinsare you using an addon like noscript and blocking its' functionality?19:39
Ridgewingdaftykins: It's a crown dependancy, isn't it ??19:39
daftykinsyour paste doesn't even load for me, heh - must be the coming from california19:39
thebwtlinuxey_: it should be PPA, then if you can't find one backpoirt it. Which... What answer would you prefer?19:39
daftykinsRidgewing: sorry that's off topic here19:39
RidgewingHere's that paste again - from a more reputable website : http://pastebin.com/NaJn0iJa19:41
prashant_123456hello all19:42
daftykinsRidgewing: what exactly are you wanting to do with this info?19:42
Ridgewingdaftykins: I need to pastebin - or upload it to a website - so that I can effectively display my system specs, in order to solve anther problem/bug. Ok ?19:43
daftykinsRidgewing: not really, what's the actual problem?19:43
akikpastebin fail19:44
linuxey_thebwt: why is a PPA preferred? Just the workload aspect?19:44
RidgewingIt's complicated ... but I shall try.19:44
daftykinslinuxey_: they provide updates over a static source compile, of course19:44
thebwtlinuxey_: the modularity, it is typically only a single package, don't have to worrk about it borking the rest of the system (like your debian repo situation)19:44
linuxey_well.. yes. I got the part about going backport, but I was asking - why PPA backport vs my own19:45
RidgewingIf fact - I don't thinkI shall. I'm bored with it , bye all.19:45
thebwtlinuxey_: vs your own, we don't assume most users can compile debian packages19:45
thebwtlinuxey_:  (hence my link to checkinstall earlier19:46
MonkeyDustthebwt  don't abuse the enter key, it has rights too19:46
linuxey_oh.. i already have build tasks to build debs the hard way even :)19:48
linuxey_i gotcha. we use Bamboo to create artifacts, such as debs19:48
thebwtlinuxey_: oh, in that case roll it yourself, that PPA looks like it hasn't been updated in a year.19:48
linuxey_ok.. good. thanks19:48
linuxey_by the way, I also build a slew up the latest python debs with the bdist_deb plugin.. works great.19:49
linuxey_a slew of19:49
thebwtlinuxey_: sounds like your team should start their own PPA :)19:50
linuxey_pulls the latest python modules from pypi and creates debs19:50
NetworkingProAnyone know anything about docker?  Speifically, it doesnt seem to sync up with the docker repo I added...19:51
linuxey_ok.. good room. nice to have some ubu peeps around. i'll be back19:51
daftykinsNetworkingPro: there's probably a channel for it, here on freenode if you /msg alis list *docker*19:51
linuxey_later thebwt and daftykins and seveas19:52
daftykinslinuxey_: good luck o/19:52

seonerhi why using ubuntu when you are debian?19:52

rabenstewhat if i delete a module from /lib/modules19:55
bekksrabenste: Why would you do that?19:55
rabenstehaving problems getting two diffrent dvb-c cards working at the same time19:55
daftykinsrabenste: i think blacklisting is better than deleting19:56
MonkeyDustrabenste  if you really want to know, for testing purposes, try it in a VM19:56
rabensteone uses the mantis driver, the other one is a digital devices card19:56

neredsenvyI created a Windows bootable USB it works on other PC's however not on this one that has Ubuntu installed. In BIOS I set USB as first and Win Bootable Media during restart I go to boot menu select USB but PC just goes to Ubuntu login screen.19:56
rabenstethe mantis driver should be included in 14.0419:57
neredsenvyFor some reason Ubuntu takes over boot priority everytime19:57
rabensteanyway to rebuild it?19:57
neredsenvyWhy is this happening and how can I fix it ?19:57
daftykinsneredsenvy: perhaps the other systems were EFI capable and booted as EFI, but you don't have a normal boot image for it to work on this other system?19:57
wileeeneredsenvy, Nah it is you knowing how check with ##windows19:57
knobneredsenvy, the other PCs it works... are they base-Windows?19:57
daftykinsneredsenvy: easiest way to prove if it's ubuntu at fault, disconnect the disk with ubuntu on.19:57
knobOr are they base-Linux?19:57
bekksknob: What do you mean by "base-Windows" and "base-Linux"?19:58
neredsenvywileee: I have two same PC's one has Windows installed this one has Ubuntu. On Windows one it boots on USB to installer on Ubuntu it does not.19:58
wileeeneredsenvy, That is outside our support is all, an assumption of ubuntu blocking is an error19:58
neredsenvyInstead of booting on USB it skips and goes to Ubuntu login screen19:58
explosiveneredsenvy: maybe you're booting legacy on efi or vice versa19:59
wileeeneredsenvy, find the per-session bot, outside the bios maybe.19:59
explosiveneredsenvy: are you booted in ubuntu right now?19:59
explosiveneredsenvy: type sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 999919:59
knobbekks, if he removes the Windows USB... does the machine boot Windows, or Linux?   Just wondering.  Throwing ideas out there19:59
daftykinsknob: not very helpful20:00
knobI think that it is helpful.20:00
bekksknob: In fact it isnt, at all.20:00
daftykinsyep EFI :)20:01
daftykinsneredsenvy: which Windows on the drive, 7? 8? 10?20:01
knobThat's ok for you guys that know more than me.  For myself, that helps me to help neredsenvy.20:01
neredsenvyWindows 10 on the USB stick20:02
explosiveneredsenvy: you're trying to boot legacy on efi, try setting the bios to legacy mode and try booting it20:02
neredsenvyok will go try it now20:02
ChibaPetHi all. I've got a 15.10 live desktop booted on my newish low-end BayTrail ASUS laptop, and I notice that while the volume keys are recognized, the screen brightness keys aren't. I'm able to control brightness via a control panel, but I don't see xbacklight installed. Is there a way for me to control backlight from the keyboard?20:10
daftykinstried any of the kernel boot parameters such as acpi_backlight=vendor ?20:11
ChibaPetNot yet. I'd assumed it had the right driver based on the control panel being able to use it, but would the boot parameter affect keyboard control somehow?20:11
RenfriedChibaPet: I had that issue, managed to fix it and it now works, but the graphic doesnt. not sure what i did wrong, but its not broke enough for me to fix it :)20:11
Apachezis 15.10 out yet?20:12
ChibaPetApachez: yes20:12
Apachezso the usual... wait about 1 month to avoid early bugs?20:12
daftykinsChibaPet: just a guess, wouldn't hurt to try20:12
ChibaPetSo, my other question is how often people complain about crashes and data loss with a pure butter-fuss system.20:12
daftykinsApachez: wait for 15.10.1 ;)20:12
Renfriedthink this is what i followed http://askubuntu.com/questions/180819/how-to-control-brightness-on-acer-laptop20:13
daftykinsyou mean btrfs, nobody calls it that to my knowledge :P20:13
daftykinsChibaPet: essentially don't use what isn't proven yet.20:13
ChibaPetdaftykins: That's the one. Seems more evocative to expand it.20:13
Apachezany of you who knows status of a gui config tool for logitech mice?20:13
ChibaPetAh, but this is a laptop meant for misery and pain and trying new things. :P20:13
Apachezlike mx500 and such?20:13
daftykinsApachez: i think you're on the wrong OS if you want tools for those20:14
ChibaPetAlright, two of you are saying to try acpi_backlight=vendor - I'll try that.20:14
daftykinsChibaPet: add it as a one-time thing by holding left shift at boot and editing the boot entry.20:15
Renfriedas i said now it works, but the onscreen graphic does it (it was the other way around before)20:15
Apachezdaftykins: the mouse works but the extra features like "sideclick" (or whatever you would call it) doesnt20:15
daftykinsno point doing a permanent edit for a quick try20:15
Apachezthat is when you can move your scrollbutton sideways20:15
daftykinsApachez: yeah, i doubt you'll find anything to solve that in terms of utilities by Logitech themselves.20:15

bviktori'm using the builtin encryption during install20:21
bviktorerase disk, use lvm, encrypt disk20:21
ChibaPetHm. acpi_backlight=vendor didn't seem to impact anything, but today's newly learned thing (thanks to Renfried's link) is that xrandr can drive backlight values.20:21
ChibaPetIt's conceivable that the directive is being ignored for the live-cd boot.20:22

wileeebviktor, really, cool, you might look for bugs here on the web, with the apps used and release20:28
ChibaPetSame here. I'll tell you how it goes.20:28
bekksbviktor: your devs should store the sourcecode on corporate servers, instead of notebooks :)20:28

bviktorbut not with Aa0120:30
bviktori do have a problem, it's the problem that's obvious lol20:31
bviktorso yeah, there's something with the keyboard layout20:31
ioriabviktor, or faulty20:31
bviktorthere's 2 possibilities for the placement of 0, ofc i tried both several times20:31

bviktori'm not saying it's "complex", it's just tedious for the 20th time20:36

YukenI went with the simple install option, as I'm a bit of a newb and all, to install alongside Windows 10. If I were to delete my W10 partition, could I use said space to expand my current space?20:37

daftykinsChibaPet: sorry i don't use encryption or LVM, can't help you.21:17
daftykinsubuntu944: sudo dhclient wlan021:17
daftykinsoh that won't work21:18
daftykinsheh ignore me21:18
ChibaPetdaftykins: Alright. I'll forge on!21:18
bviktorexplosive, thanks, i did just what you suggested, used lili instead of rawrite, and then the partition wasn't read-only21:18
ubuntu944daftykins: it says "cannot find device wlan0"21:18
daftykinsyeah nevermind, wouldn't have worked anyway21:18
daftykinsubuntu944: run "sudo apt-get purge nvidia* " then reboot and go in with nomodeset again.21:19
john_doe_jrI have a program that I run the terminal but it keeps the terminal open …how do I exit the terminal after opening it in the terminal?21:21
bviktoras for being unable to decrypt, of course the installer changes keyboard layout by default AFTER asking for the passphrase21:21
bviktorlove to figure that shit out21:21
ChibaPetMore general question... Is there no synergy package available? I just said "apt-cache update ; apt-cache search synergy" and it seems not to know about one.21:21
daftykinsjohn_doe_jr: run it with & perhaps21:21
Seveasjohn_doe_jr: add a & to the end of the command21:21
ubuntu944daftykins: okay i did it and now i21:21
daftykinsSeveas: ^5!21:21
bekksjohn_doe_jr: run it with nohup and &21:21
ubuntu944now the login loop has gone!21:21
explosivejohn_doe_jr: <program> & disown21:21
bviktorso my unlock password was Aa`121:22
ubuntu944i booted with nomodeset21:22
daftykinsbviktor: careful on the language please.21:22
ChibaPetbviktor: If you're encrypting root, none of your locale stuff is available until after that. You can always build a custom kernel with the desired locale.21:22
bviktori'm talking about install time, not boot time21:22
bviktorduring install, it uses US by default, asks for encryption key, THEN it changes layout to HU21:24
ChibaPethttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynergyHowto suggests that there should be a synergy package :/21:24
Churchjohn_doe_jr: best bet would be running under 'screen'. This way you can reattach that session with that CLI app running later on if needed.21:24
ubuntu944daftykins: so if you need more information for i can boot without "nomodeset", i am in ubuntu now :)21:24
ChibaPetbviktor: You can re-key your LUKS, although yeah, that's kind of unfortunate.21:24
john_doe_jrbekks: that's exactly what I needed….what does the nohup utility do …first time I heard about it21:25
bekksjohn_doe_jr: nohup attaches the application to the init process, not to the terminal.21:25
daftykinsubuntu944: "lspci | pastebinit"21:26
john_doe_jrbekks: well thank you very much21:26
daftykinsubuntu944: that's as long as pastebinit is installed anyway21:26
Churchwell, technically it's not exactly "to the terminal", but "to the shell launched by/within terminal"21:26
bviktorand ChibaPet fyi i *do* have to use HU at boot time21:26
bviktornot US21:26
daftykinsChibaPet: synergy became pay for several lifetimes ago21:26
bviktorseveral askubuntu answers also said to use US but it seems not to be the case, at least not anymore21:26
ubuntu944daftykins: oh it says pastebnit os noit installed, should i install it?21:27

daftykinsyao_ziyuan: yep but you have a good backup so it's no problem21:36
YukenThere should be no problems simply wiping Windows, with the default set up that Ubuntu does when I choose "Install Alongside Windows 10", correct?21:37
YukenIn Lubuntu 15.10, ofc.21:37
vfwyao_ziyuan: The situation you describe is not the norm21:37
yao_ziyuanafter half a year the current version will get old anyway21:37
wileeeYuken, I would not gui that21:37
yao_ziyuanwhat are you guys' upgrade strategy? upgrade or reinstall the new version freshly?21:37
daftykinsyao_ziyuan: clean install LTS every time.21:38
omgitsmityao_ziyuan: i upgrade and if it breaks, reinstall lol21:38
Yukenwileee, what exactly do you mean?21:38
daftykinsubuntu944: ok reboot and nomodeset again :(21:38
wileeeYuken, using alongside to remove windows is a clumsy mistake really not a usable method21:38
vfwyao_ziyuan:  I will admit that fresh clean install is hard to beat.21:38
wileeeYuken, May just be the wording interpretation though.21:39
Yukenwileee, I have already installed alongside Windows, using the default option. This was mainly to test if my games would run properly in WINE. As they do, I am planning to remove the Windows partition, then expand my current Linux partition.21:39
ubuntu944daftykins: i did and now again the login loop!! >_<21:39
daftykinsubuntu944: yeah but use ctrl+alt+F1 again21:40
usermeis there a good program for  editing photos on linux?21:40
vfwuserme: gimp21:40
wileeeYuken, Cool, I would just remove windows from the install or live in gparted, or the cli, first, but that's me.21:40
Yukenuserme, depends on needs. For most, GIMP.21:40
omgitsmitI had no problem deleting my windows partition, just make sure you're using grub to boot - even went further by using gpart to extend my linux partition afterwards21:40
usermeis that pre loaded on here or habe download it21:40
ubuntu944daftykins: okay what do you want me to write?21:40
Yukenwileee, that is what I'm planning to do. Boot up on my SD card, and wipe the Windows partition.21:40
yao_ziyuanmaybe a good upgrade strategy is to only upgrade/reinstall when a major problem occurs.21:40
wileeeYuken, Cool, sounds like your aware of boot issue if needed, if uefi be sure to know.21:41
usermehas anyone ever used gimp21:41

daftykinsubuntu944: actually, ideally i would look at some log files on there - but you can't upload them right now as your install won't be online. at the login screen does it let you pick 'guest' login? does that work? (ctrl+alt+F7 to go back to the GUI)21:42

vfw!nomodeset | zubuntu21:47
ubottuzubuntu: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter21:47

minitrueclobrano: hu..sorry for that, i dont know what i was thinking21:47
vfwuserme: You can copy/paste selected portions of one image to another.21:48
daftykinsubuntu944: hmm looks like you're booting with nomodeset :) that's why it's not working, i think it's added permanently every time since that's how you had to install. can you use 'e' to edit the normal ubuntu boot entry and delete nomodeset from the entry?21:48
OneM_IndustriesHow I prevent ubuntu from automatically opening a drive when I insert it into my computer?21:48
daftykinsubuntu944: in fact, before that... "pastebinit /etc/default/grub" please21:49

daftykinsYuken_: swap, for example, you must turn off before you can delete.21:53
ubuntu944daftykins: hmm this is not the log? how can i give it to you?21:53
daftykinsmlvmhn: no it's a bootable ISO / on the ubuntu boot menu if you hold left shift at boot time21:53
Yuken_daftykins: Would I be able to resize /dev/sda5, if I were to delete /dev/sda2?21:53
daftykinsubuntu944: i'm not sure which one it'd be, typically /var/log/Xorg.0.log is the one of the boot that just happened21:53

clockyCan someone help me to install 1 project from git? I21:54
daftykinsmlvmhn: it's not a command, it's a program - and it tests your RAM21:54
daftykinsYuken_: not without full backup beforehand, no - sda5 cannot change until sda2 changes21:54
daftykinssda5 is a logical drive within sda2 which is an extended partition21:54
ubuntu944daftykins: hmm okay so i sent you this before but theres not the log of this boot before? :/21:55
mlvmhnbut my RAM works fine under Windows, this problem started in Ubuntu21:55
mlvmhni have 4 GB RAM, is not that enough for Ubuntu??21:55
Yuken_daftykins: I would like to delete sda2, to use that space for sda5, my Linux partition. So, this is not possible? Or am I misinterperating?21:55
daftykinsubuntu944: i think the best way, would be to power up as normal, boot *without* nomodeset, then power off when it goes blank - boot your flash drive of ubuntu, then come online and we'll get the log from the disk21:55
lukas_Hi ...21:56
daftykinsYuken_: you can't delete sda2 because all of its' children must be dead before it will surrender its' life :)21:56
jason__mlvmhn, the first thing I'd do is check to make sure you have swap setup21:56
Yuken_daftykins: ah, hell. So the ebst bet, if I want to use that space, is just an entire reformat?21:56
clockyCan someone help me with installation one project from git on Ubuntu on digital ocean?21:56
mlvmhnhow do i chck that?21:57
daftykinsYuken_: is the task here just to take some space from Windows and give it to your ubuntu / fs?21:57
ubuntu944daftykins: okay so i should boot my live usb stick then? wouldnt it be an alternative to boot in the recovery mode or and get the things you need or is that not good?21:57
daftykinsmlvmhn: "free -m" in the terminal, pasted to http://paste.ubuntu.com21:57
daftykinsjason__: good call21:57
Yuken_daftykins: If I can do that, that would be fine.21:57
daftykinsubuntu944: i think recovery would be offline21:57
jason__clocky, sudo apt-get install git-core; git clone url21:57
daftykinsYuken_: i was just asking if that is what you are doing today?21:58
daftykinsYuken_: oh silly me i had the numbers wrong, sda4 is the extended partition, not 221:58
daftykinsYuken_: if you want to reduce the size of sda2, you should be able to right click it now and resize?21:59
ubuntu944daftykins: in the recovery, i can choose" network    activate network" maybe with that?21:59
clockyI know how, but there are lots of dependencies , and not full instruction given, so lost all day trying to install it. If someone has a free time and good mood,  I will appreciate it)21:59

mlvmhnone 4 GB stick, my total is 64 GB22:12
ubuntu944daftykins: yepp there was just a black screen and nothing happened. then i powered off and booted from the flash drive22:13
blacklisthi all22:13
ChibaPetbviktor: Amusingly, the encrypted install worked, although I gave up on trying to get it to slickly handle btrfs as well. The amusing bit is where it tells me I've entered a bad passphrase, but then after a moment says it's fine and continues to boot.22:13
bviktorbtrfs haha22:13
daftykinsubuntu944: the log still states that nomodeset is being used to boot :S22:13
sukee_vfw, did you saw my pastebinit ?22:13
vfwubuntu944: Some display adapters require nomodeset22:13
vfwsukee_: Yes22:13
bviktorsounds great..22:14
bviktoratm i'm trying to set up usb unlock22:14
ChibaPetbviktor: The laptop was running ZFS root on LUKS earlier today. It seemed worth trying butter-fuss.22:14
mlvmhnshould i try watching a movie without ruuning Chrome with tabs in the background?22:14
edeniqueany pro with a vpn connection on ubuntu ,, im a noob22:14
bviktorzfs is great for nas/san22:14
vfwsukee_: Your WiFi connection is good.  Signal report is good.22:14
ubuntu944daftykins: really?? okay i will do it again just to be 100% sure. so i will boot my normal ubuntu without that i enter "nomodeset" in "e". then when black screen i shut down and start live usb again22:14
bviktorfail to see the point on a desktop tho22:14
ubuntu944daftykins: okay?22:14
vfwsukee: Do you really need more than 5mbps?22:14
daftykinsubuntu944: use 'e' to edit then look what is already there, something like "...quiet splash nomodeset ..."22:15
ChibaPetbviktor: Terrifically efficient back-ups.22:15
bviktorassuming you have ECC ram22:15
sukee_vfw, well i kinda want it for faster downloads on my laptop and i dont get why it has to be slower22:15
bviktoralso, snapshot != backup22:15
daftykinssukee_: what kind of downloads?22:16
ChibaPetbviktor: Good catch. But send/receive == backup.22:16
bviktorum, sure22:16
ubuntu944daftykins: i will show you photo22:16
daftykinsubuntu944: cool22:16
sukee_daftykins, well torrents and such but also for my OS updates and such22:17
vfwsukee_: I don't know why it is slower either.  It could be a setting on the router.22:17
daftykinssukee_: neither are wifi related then particularly.22:17
daftykinstorrents = your source is bad, OS updates = your ubuntu mirror is bad :)22:17
daftykinsyou can confirm that wifi is not to blame by using a network cable temporarily with wifi off, to test22:17
ChibaPetbviktor: Oh, I missed the ECC RAM bit. That's largely been debunked.22:18
sukee_maybe a faulty drivers fault ?22:18
vfwdaftykins: He did.22:18
daftykinsah ok, wasn't following along22:18
vfwsukee_: Yes, that is a possibility.22:18
daftykinsvfw: what's the adapter and driver then?22:18
ubuntu944daftykins: here: http://imgur.com/JhJfmuX22:18
bviktorcitation needed22:18
vfwsukee_: lspci | pastebinit22:19
ChibaPetNah, you can find it if you look. :P22:19
daftykinsubuntu944: ok that's extremely confusing :)22:19
ubuntu944daftykins: its not normal?22:20
daftykinsintel 103022:20
daftykinsubuntu944: no definitely not, the log suggests it's booting with nomodeset and yet it's not there - although there's a double space, did you add that?22:20
vfwsukee_: daftykins http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=220155622:21
daftykinsvfw: you spotted the realtek wired LAN22:21
vfwsukee_: Fully updated?22:22
daftykinsvfw: wifi is intel 1030, own the same card myself22:22
ubuntu944daftykins: yeh might be, i removed and booted now. now i get the following error:  "iwlwifi unsupported splx structure"22:22
ubuntu944daftykins: its really strange, sometimes i just get a black screen and sometimes i get this error. and now it wont boot22:22
daftykinsubuntu944: is that lonely white text on a black background ?22:22
sukee_vfw, yeah just installed 14.04 and fully updated22:22
ubuntu944daftykins: yep22:22
daftykinsubuntu944: tell you what, boot and delete "quiet splash" too22:22
=== Myrtti is now known as DoloresUmbridge
vfwdaftykins: sukee_ my bad... it is intel 1030\22:23
ubuntu944daftykins: alright22:23
ChibaPetActually, I guess this is worth sharing just to bring more light to the world: http://jrs-s.net/2015/02/03/will-zfs-and-non-ecc-ram-kill-your-data/22:23
vfwdaftykins: So the Intel 1030 works ok for you?22:23
daftykinsi don't use ubuntu on that laptop (but don't tell anyone)22:23
vfwdaftykins: ooops.... ;022:24
ubuntu944daftykins: now i get really much white text. but it seems like it will not boot now. i will upload a photo for you22:24

vfwsukee_: I don't know, maybe.22:29
daftykinsubuntu944: do you get a TTY login from any of ctrl+alt+F1 through ctrl+alt+F6?22:29
daftykinssukee_: that won't help you22:30
ubuntu944daftykins: when i enter those combinations nothing happens22:30
vfwsukee_: Actually, I do not think the slow speed would be changed by using different method for acquiring domain name IP info.,22:30
daftykinsubuntu944: the text doesn't even disappear?22:30
OneM_IndustriesHow I prevent ubuntu from automatically opening a drive when I insert it into my computer?22:30
ubuntu944daftykins: no nothing appears it seems like its freeze or something22:31
OneM_IndustriesI sometimes deal with potentially dangerous drives, so I want to be able to control what happens when I put a drive in my system.22:31
daftykinsubuntu944: ok, i think i will need to run this by a brighter mind to find out what is going wrong22:31
daftykinsOneM_Industries: it's not Windows, it's not going to autorun some malware from a Windows machine or some such :P22:32
sukee_vfw, daftykins i will try this one's solutions : http://askubuntu.com/questions/363126/slow-wifi-after-with-centrino-wireless-n-1030-rainbow-peak22:32
OneM_IndustriesHeh, I know.22:32
daftykinsOneM_Industries: then why are you afraid :P22:32
OneM_IndustriesIt just makes me a bit nervous.22:32
OneM_Industries(And, also, it can be a bit annoying.)22:33
ubuntu944daftykins: okay yes i can understand that. well it's really confusing. i always could only launch whith nomodeset. and then this login loop will come often. i dont know the reasons :(22:33
daftykinssukee_: no i don't think so - "lshw -C network | pastebinit" if you could22:33
daftykinssukee_: that post suggests to change driver, but i bet you're on iwlwifi already22:33
daftykinsubuntu944: probably 15.10 being too new causing something, that 970M is very new too. optimus is always a nightmare with Linux22:33
vfwsukee_: You can try it, but not sure...  May be something beyond Ubuntu and the wifi adapter.  If you have a different wifi card, you could try that  too..22:34
daftykinsubuntu944: are you going to be online much later tonight? (was machst du heute nacht? :) )22:34
sukee_daftykins, vfm http://paste.ubuntu.com/13016335/22:34
vfwsukee_: Again... we do not know for sure that your rotuer will allow speeds higher than 5M.22:35
sukee_vfw, my wired connections are all above 20+M22:35
daftykinsare you talking 5 megabytes per second of throughput, or 5 megabits of wifi connection link speed, vfw?22:35
sukee_vfw, and on windows through wireless is 20+M22:36
ubuntu944daftykins: hmm yes i see. i think it really must be something with the graphics card. because when you told me to uninstall all the drivers at least the login loop was gone first22:36
daftykinssukee_: yes so you see iwlwifi is already in use22:36
ubuntu944daftykins: are you from germany too? :D i think i will still be awake for some time though i dont know how long maybe 1 hour since i had a long workday :) tomorrow and sunday i will be available long22:37
bviktorChibaPet, assuming the theory is correct, then you "only" need to add big amounts of ram exclusively for your file system, cool22:37
bviktorand a ups for the comp, too22:37
bviktorzfs is just not for the desktop, no matter what22:38
daftykinsubuntu944: ok, i was thinking of popping out briefly22:38
sukee_daftykins, so whats the problem ? since on windows i get normally my full potential via Wi-fi22:38
daftykinssukee_: Linux isn't too hot, that's the problem sadly.22:38
sukee_daftykins, okk i guess ill have to live with it :P22:39
daftykinssukee_: i see that if you are using 14.04 you're actually using the 15.04 kernel via the HWE stack (3.19)22:39
ChibaPetbviktor: Research! It's the only solution to ignorance. You don't need a ton of RAM. You don't need a UPS. But you seem to have an agenda, so I'll concede all your points and move on with life. :P22:39
daftykinssukee_: trying a newer mainline kernel could be worth a try, but is not without risk (and potentially time wasted)22:40
ubottuThe 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/MainlineBuilds22:40
bviktoryeah, you don't need to have a lot of ram, you can also settle with a slow fs22:40
bviktorfor no good reason22:40
mave_is daisy chaining two display port monitors a no go on ubuntu 14.04? Xrandr does see both monitors and the resolution is correct, but no signal on the second screen.22:40
mave_and hi guys22:40
sukee_daftykins, well right now i am not in the mood for trying new things so i guess i could live with it for a while22:40
zacwallsSo I am trying to install spotify. Everything was going as normal until this: http://pastebin.com/apQrkwDL22:41
ChibaPetbviktor: Conceded! Next?22:41
sukee_daftykins, i am off hope i wont have any problems any sooner! See ya!22:42
bviktorare you trying to imply ram capacity doesn't affect zfs performance or what?22:42
ChibaPetbviktor: You have an agenda and don't want to learn, so I'm conceding all your points in advance.22:42
bviktorthis is not an agenda, these are facts22:42
bviktorbut if you can prove ram reduction doesn't hurt zfs performance, you're right22:43
ChibaPetIf you're already an expert on ARC tuning then I can't really add to your knowledge.22:43
bviktortho all the articles state otherwise22:43
ChibaPetConceded. Next?22:43
bviktorhmm yeah, comparing disk speed to ram speed, another good point22:44
bviktorthey're only a few orders of magnitude different22:44
bviktori'm convinced22:44
k1lzacwalls: that are very very old depencies. libavcodec53 was in 12.0422:44
zacwallsk1l, damn... Well, what should I do?22:45
ChibaPetbviktor: Just one question. Do you actually run the stuff, or are you just quoting things you've read?22:45
bviktori've been benchmarking hunderds of TBs of storage for weeks22:45
ChibaPetI'm asking about ZFS specifically.22:45
bviktoryeah, zfs is also storage iirc22:46
bviktorzfs was part of the tests22:46
bviktorbut you know what, i can play this game, too. i'm on an agenda, so it doesn't matter22:46
k1lzacwalls: good question. try if they have a more recent repo. iirc they have a testing repo. you could try that22:47
ChibaPetI don't really care that much. Real shops buy EMC and NetApp, so you're in a resource constrained environment. That's fine. ZFS should work well there.22:47
bviktoryou can also use oracle for storing your wordpress data, it will make at least as much sense as zfs on a desktop22:47

kostkonzacwalls, latest version of spotify is only 64bit. 32bit skype is a much older version of spotify that's why you are getting those dep problems22:48

zacwallskostkon, so what do you suggest I do? Run through wine?22:49
Bomber4Chats2Going mobile22:50
kostkonzacwalls, or use the web interface. or install 64bit UBuntu like the majority of people do in 2015.22:50
zacwallskostkon, I don't have a 64 bit PC..22:50
zacwallsalso running Xubuntu because I have really old hardware...22:50
kostkonzacwalls, ok. what's your cpu btw22:50
zacwallskostkon, Intel Pentium Dual-Core22:51
kostkonzacwalls, that sounds like something that is 64bit to me22:51
zacwallskostkon, how can I check?22:51
k1lintel dualcore is most probably a 64bit22:51

explosivehow much space do you want to give it?23:17
rom-I have 350GB HDD. win10 is 260GB .. I'm thiniking of assigning it 60GB more of it's original 19GB23:19
explosiverom-: shrink win10, then make a /home partition with the 60gb23:21
robertjwhere are device id to driver mapping stored?23:21
rom-using Gparted right?23:22
explosiverom-: would be better to use win10 to shrink it23:22
rom-I have 6GB unallocated before... How do I assign it to /23:24
explosivetype sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 999923:24
rom-it gave a link23:25

MonkeyDustdasabhi  /msg alis list blah23:28
rom-if I delete it wont it go to ntfs win 10 hdd23:28
explosiverom-: no it'll just be unallocated at the end, then you can resize the first linux partition and extend the filesystem23:29
wileeerom-, why the ext2 what OS is this?23:29
explosiverom-: you can't make a separate /home though cause you have 3 primary partitions already23:30
rom-how do I snap my desktop please so I can show you the GParted window23:30
Bashing-omrobertj: What is your end goal ? does ' sudo blkid -c /dev/null -o list ' suffice ?23:30
explosiveand it's between the win10 and linux one, so you'd have to move the whole linux one back with gparted maybe23:31

OerHekszacwalls, not, as we are on 1.0.0. something23:31
zacwallsOerHeks, ok23:32
k1lzacwalls: that are way too old depencies. its around 12.04 or even way back. see if the testing repo works better23:32
robertjonce it's done I can then use ethtool to set the offset to set it to the real device id23:32
OerHeksthat installer script is outdated.23:32
rom- 3      287GB   307GB  21.0GB  primary   ext2 is   ext2  / which is 19.56GB and extended 5.20GB23:32
zacwallsk1l, Where can I find it?23:33
Bashing-omrobertj: Sorry, that one is out of my pay-grade .23:33
k1lthere where you found the other one23:33
explosiverom-: you have to shrink the windows one, and move the whole ext2 back into the new unallocated space23:33
explosiverom-: i think gparted can handle that kind of stuff, it might take a while though23:34
MonkeyDustrom-  backup, first, before you start modifying partitions23:34
rom-explosive: I think is better to just let it be... Cos I don't want to have a problem with my ubuntu ... For years I've installed and always have problems that I even deleted whole partition. This time I better let it go...23:36
