frostschutzweva, cryptsetup works with image files too, so you can cryptsetup luksDump some.image to see if it's LUKS or not00:00
ajacmacit installed to 2.7 by default00:00
frostschutzweva, or did you mean you are migrating an unencrypted one to luks?00:00
=== toby is now known as Guest95418
wevafrostschutz, I tried it not with luksdump, but with luksopen, and the results were the same for different disk images I have: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13075829/00:05
wevaI tried it with the mounted images that I had difficulty unmounting in the recent session00:05
frostschutzweva, cryptsetup would create (and remove) the necessary loop devices for you00:06
frostschutzweva, what does 'file the.image' say?00:06
DJ_Hi All,  does anyone have any advice on Research and implementing a mail server with ubuntu server 14.04.3? I am new to these kinds of "Big boy" projects and would like to learn how to research these kinds of things00:08
nieehi. i write "su -l" to give a root, now i need to typed "sudo -i". how to fix this. i want to give a root after typed "su -l"00:08
wevafrostschutz, it says "image.dd: data"00:08
ulkeshDJ_: Found on the google: http://www.tecmint.com/setup-postfix-mail-server-in-ubuntu-debian/   hope it helps!00:09
k1lniee: on ubuntu we use sudo. so we use sudo -i to get a root shell00:10
frostschutzweva, so it's not a known type, filesystem, luks, or raid image... were you expecting it to be?00:10
DJ_ulkesh, While I appreciate thel link share I am not asking for an article to blindly follow. I am reaching out to ask how the community Plans their implemenations and researchs their products00:10
wevafrostschutz, this was a partition that I properly created as encrypted, and then transferred 2,5 gb of files into, and locked before powering off the drive. in the next session, the partition was shown as "unknown"00:11
nieekl1 but befor in my ubuntu 11.04 i use "su -l" to give a root shell.00:11
ulkeshDJ_: pardon me, then00:11
quanticniee: then it was improperly configured.00:12
HoloIRCUserok, not sure how well this will come across, so work with me. I have a new HP Envy computer. I bough an SSD that im trying to upgrade it to. Ihave been trying to clone the partitions, but i cant seem to boot into windows 10. ( i have been using DD to clone it). SO - WOuld you suggest or believe that intead of using the parittion command, and went for the entire drive, it would work? My Other question, is that, the origianal 00:12
wevaI dont know what happened, but 2,5gb of data must be somewhere inside, as I haven't deleted any file, folder or partition00:12
quanticniee: The Ubuntu standard is that you use sudo to elevate, such as using "sudo -i" to gain a root shell.00:15
quanticniee: If that's what is now necessary - Great! It's working as it should.00:15
frostschutzweva, encrypted as in LUKS? you need to find the LUKS header then00:15
DJ_uklesh, I'm not trying to be a dick, promise00:16
daftykinshopefully your LUKS not run out00:16
nieeok. tnx for help :)00:16
quanticdaftykins: oh, nicely done00:16
daftykinsquantic: thanks :D00:16
daftykinsso glad someone noticed ;_;00:16
ulkeshDJ_: No worries, I gotcha :)  I assumed too quickly and didn't properly read your original question.  Apologies here :)00:17
wevafrostschutz, yes, it is luks encrypted. but, aside from the question how i can find the header, does it help when the file is not shown as an encrypted ext4 filesystem?00:18
quanticweva: because until its decrypted, how would the system know it's a filesystem at all?00:18
OerHeksHoloIRCUser, transfering windows is beyond the scope of this channel, in ##windows they should be able to tell how without activation problems00:18
wevaquantic, so it's shown as unknown because it's encrypted?00:18
quanticweva: Being able to determine what type of filesystem exists inside an encrypted container would be an information leak.00:18
frostschutzweva, normally, testdisk should find LUKS headers... if you're looking for alternatives, 'sudo strings -t d /where/to/look | grep LUKS' (but it will give you false matches as well)00:18
HoloIRCUserOerHeks. i know- but they refer me to here because im using DD00:19
davegriCan anyone recommend a good laptop, reliable best bang-for-buck. Minimum specs: [15.6",1600x900,4GB RAM,option for ssd upgrade] under $1000?00:19

HoloIRCUserdavegri - yoga00:20
davegriMost $300 laptops don't have those specs or they are complete shit00:20
davegriYeah I'm leaning towards Lenovo00:20
davegriI've never actually owned a laptop though so I have shit-all experience00:20
HoloIRCUseroh :/00:20
HoloIRCUserthe yoga is hot- but ur cant mod it. SO- maybe something HP or ... less slim line.00:21
ajacmacI got mine used for $500~ with 8 gigs of ram, I just put in a caddy for an ssd where the cd drive was00:21
baiterlaptops suck00:21
HoloIRCUseryeah.. i got a new HP that im messing with on the same way.00:21
ajacmacthe screen isn't 1600*900 though00:21
wevaquantic, I understand. the root cause seems to be something gone wrong in the filesystem, because not all the partitions have become "unknown", there are intact luks partitions.00:21
HoloIRCUseryeah, true- but they are portable.00:21
baiterthey have heat issues, speed issues, interface is shit00:21

Guest83556a 15.6" monitor and 4GB of RAM is pretty much the standard these days. The only problem is the underpowered CPU compared to desktops.00:22
k1ldavegri: please ask that in ##hardware or #ubuntu-offtopic00:22
ajacmacyou should look for a laptop with a decent cpu, nothing over the top, 4+ gigs of ram and a cd drive, you can just swap the cd drive out for an ssd and be good to go00:23
HoloIRCUserdavegri - i have the same CPU on my new HP. I have 16gb ram though. ..... so - id weigh out the usage of hte new computer.00:23
wevafrostschutz, I also read about testdisk or gparted could restore filesystems. that was why I thought about changing file type via testdisk and creating the image of the new file to restore a partition from it00:23
daftykinsdavegri: #ubuntu-offtopic for system advice, this is support only.00:23
wevado you think it might help?00:23
ajacmacyou can get an i5/i7 in that price range easy, even if it's a QM the performance will be respectable00:23
daftykinsbaiter: that language is NOT acceptable - and don't bring that negativity here either.00:24
frostschutzweva, not sure what you mean by change file type via testdisk... testdisk is supposed to find things, not change things00:25
locutus_ok first time on irc and just wading into debian00:26
daftykinslocutus_: this is #ubuntu - so you might want to join #debian00:26
locutus_thank you dat00:27
locutus_actually, mean "debian based"00:27
trimetaI'm trying to build a server with a BTRFS RAID 1 root on top of encrypted volumes. Normally, initramfs doesn't want to decrypt two different volumes on boot, but I modified /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/cryptroot to fix this. However, the system still refuses to boot if the BTRFS system wants two devices, even though both of those devices are unlocked.00:27
trimetaAnyone know what's going on here? I can mount the BTRFS system without error from within the initramfs rescue shell, but for some reason it's not mounting automatically in the scripts.00:27
locutus_I'm more accustomed to redhat historically00:27
daftykinslocutus_: ok, support chat only here - chat in #ubuntu-offtopic :)00:28
locutus_ok thankyou. will add that as well00:28
wevafrostschutz, that's also what I should think. but I found an online post about it, and saw in testdisk the "T" option, which changes the file type, and I set it as "linux LUKS"..then I copied the new file to a drive, the dd file that I referred to.00:29
andystarI think I am going to have to reinstall Linux, after just reinstalling it a while ago.  I don't think it should be necessary, except that I installed all of these sound applications from kxstudio.  They required the use of jack audio.00:30
frostschutzweva, do you actually have to recover this data or can you just ... copy it again from wherever you copied the first time?00:33
daftykinsyeah that'd break it :)00:33
andystardaftykins, Who is your comment aimed at?00:34
daftykinsandystar: you00:35
wevafrostschutz, the two places on two different drives, where I copied the data, have both become "unknown" at the same time. so I can get image of two partitions as many times as I can, but cannot access the data which I suppose is still in there, as I saw them there before all this happened00:35
andystardaftykins, Thanks.00:35
samthewildoneso I'm having a problem where I cannot have my bluetooth (bose ae2w) work in conjunction to outputing/inputing sound.00:35
wevasince they are LUKS partitions, I might not have success with testdisk anyway, if I'm not mistaken?00:36
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.00:36
samthewildoneTrying to use teamspeak but, it's become a pain.00:36
wevaI mean in trying to recover data right now00:36
ubottuInformation about games on Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Games and http://www.icculus.org/lgfaq/gamelist.php and http://www.penguspy.com/00:37
wevafrostschutz, sorry for the long answer, the answer to your question is that the data is only in these two borked partitions now00:37
frostschutzweva, if it was luks encrypted you need the luks header. if testdisk does not find it, try strings. otherwise, end of the line00:38
wevaexcept that I could probably use testdisk on my hard drive from where I cut-pasted them to the external drive00:38
samthewildoneandystar, hey looking for some great games for linux ?00:38
wevabut I think strings would be much easier than digging into hundreds of GB to find 2,5gb of data00:39
samthewildoneandystar, Steam has some great games for linux for free; just need to have an account with them to access their linux games.00:39
wevafrostschutz, I see. so no use in creating a partition from the dd image?00:40
rbongHey, trying to customize a LiveCD. It says here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization that the home directory is generated at some point. I think it's through casper, but I tried adding lines in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/casper-bottom along the lines of what was in there and nothing is added to the LiveCD. I'm in a chroot now on the same image in Ubuntu Customization Kit.00:40
wevaor no possibility of file system restore via gparted or, theoretically, via fsck?00:41
andystarsamthewildone, The sound query to ubottu was for you.  I was curious as to what ubottu had in its database about games, as well.00:41
wevajust asking, as I am wary of fsck, being unfamiliar with it00:41
andystarsamthewildone, Teamspeak is only used for games, from what I have seen.00:42
samthewildoneandystar, ah, but I'm having more of a bluetooth output problems.00:43
daftykinsandystar: please query the factoids or PM the bot directly in future :)00:43
ubottuHi! I'm #ubuntu's favorite infobot, you can search my brain yourself at http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi | Usage info: http://ubottu.com/devel/wiki/Plugins | Bot channels and general info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Bots | Make a clone of me: /msg ubottu botclone00:43
wevafrostschutz, so in the command 'sudo strings -t d /where/to/look | grep LUKS'  "where to look" would be the "unknown" luks partition on the drive?00:45
andystarsamthewildone, Have you tried asking in a hardware forum?00:45

moon__How would I go about creating a VPN on my home machine so when at work I can connect to my home VPN?00:47
andystardaftykins, It looks like I didn't trigger it, by including an exclamation point in the middle of my sentence.00:47
daftykinsandystar: no, nor should you as you're now spamming.00:48
wevameanwhile, I'd like to see what happens with the image file.  in this command "dd if=image.dd of=/dev/sdX bs=1M" will /dev/sdX be the destination drive where the partition created by the image will be saved?00:52
andystardaftykins, Sorry.  My first two queries to it were for samthewildone's sake.  The third one was in response to yours.  You seemed to want to be jovial about the chatbot.00:52
daftykinsandystar: well i mentioned private messaging or clicking the factoids link, so... bear that in mind :)00:53
frostschutzweva, it would be the drive or image file where you believe the luks header to be. and don't dd the image back to the disk, that's unnecessary...00:53
frostschutzweva, i.e. if you don't know where it is, search the whole drive, with testdisk too if you used testdisk on a partition instead of whole disk before00:54
wevafrostschutz, I presume the luks header would be on the external drive where I created the partition, am I correct?00:55
wevacould it be anywhere on the whole drive, or is it likely that it is found within the partition's own area(as it is still clearly seen as /dev/sdbX)00:57
frostschutzweva, it would be at the very beginning of the partition in question normally, (and file -s -L /dev/device would say it's LUKS as would luksDump)00:58
wevaso if the partition in question is /dev/sdb9, would it be correct to type sudo strings -t d /dev/sdb9 | grep LUKS ?00:58
wevafrostschutz, so if the partition in question is /dev/sdb9, would it be correct to type sudo strings -t d /dev/sdb9 | grep LUKS ?00:58
wevafrostschutz, file -s -L /dev/sdc9 says '/dev/sdc9: data', like earlier01:01
moon__VPN, anyone?01:04
wevafrostschutz, in that case, would it still be correct to use " sudo strings -t d /dev/sdc9 | grep LUKS" ?01:05

monty_hallhow can I screen shot a selection of a screen?01:33
monty_hallcan unbuntu do this out of the box?01:33
Mike41synergistics due to issues with drivers it's not portable01:33
Mike41monty I don't think so but you can edit the capture later01:34
k1lmonty_hall: alt+print screenshots the active window01:34
TJ-synergistics: to a large degree yes; with proprietary drivers (especially GPU) sometimes not01:34
synergisticsTJ-: So installing the drivers for the computer you go to is the barrier to portability?01:35
synergisticsThen what's the best way to maintain a constant installation but migrate computers?01:35
synergisticsOr make the transition to a new computer as seamless as possible01:35
synergistics(Not using a VM)01:35
wevahello, frostschutz seems to have gone. can someone here help me further maybe?01:35
TJ-synergistics: Well, generally it won't be a problem for open source drivers which are the majority, because the Linux kernel loads drivers in response to what hardware it discovers each time it starts01:36
TJ-synergistics: but where, for example, there's a hard-coded /etc/X11/xorg.conf for, say, an nvidia Optimus system, that is going to cause the Xserver to failsafe itself on a system with an Intel GPU01:36
TJ-synergistics: same issue with, say, Wifi drivers. If the installer system only has fully open-source driver hardware 0 not Broadcom - but then you move the USB to a system with a Broadcom Wifi chipset, you'll have to install the broadcom drivers - unless you've gone through that beforehand01:38
synergisticsTJ-: So if I do move to another computer, installing the proper drivers will be sufficient in some cases?01:38
fluffy_punchdoes anyone here regularly do console emulation?01:38
fluffy_punchspecifically wii (dolphin) ?01:38
TJ-synergistics: Yes, and if you know ahead of time what drivers are likely to be needed you can install them on the system that doesn't require them01:38
synergisticsAh I see01:38
TJ-synergistics: E.g. accelerated GPU drivers for AMD, Nvidia. WiFi drivers for Broadcom,, some Realtek01:39
synergisticsWhy is it that hardware will sometimes just work without me needing to install drivers01:39
TJ-synergistics: because the drivers are already in the Linux kernel because they are open-sourced01:39
synergisticsAh, yea01:40
TJ-synergistics: Generally, the Linux kernel contains the drivers for every device you can imagine, with some notable exceptions because the hardware chipset makers won't/don't release the technical specifications or help kernel devs develop a driver01:40
synergisticsYea, I remember reading about the kernel and drivers01:41
synergisticsOk, thanks for the help01:41
TJ-synergistics: And, at boot-time the kernel identifies each hardware chipset and loads the correct driver01:41
synergisticsI see01:41
synergisticsit seems like it doesn't take much storage space to hold all the driver specifications; why is that?01:42
synergisticsOr that it would take more than it does to do so01:42
TJ-synergistics: drivers for each kernel version are stored under /lib/modules/${KERNEL_VERSION}/. Drivers really don't need that much space for their code in most instances. Generic code - stuff that all drivers use - is implemented just once in the kernel and called by all modules (drivers) that need it01:43
ASSCAPTAINhi all01:43
synergisticsOh ok01:43
Mike41hello there01:45
TJ-synergistics: Ubuntu builds kernels with the most common essential modules already built-in to the kernel image, which is stored at /boot/vmlinuz-${KERNEL_VERSION}. Additional modules are loaded as the hardware is discovered, when the kernel sends an Event to the udevd (user-space device daemon) which in turn calls 'modprobe' which locates the correct driver and inserts into the kernel's memory.01:45

Mike41Hello. I would like some clarification on something. Lately I've been hearing about Ubuntu sending local search queries to Amazon, among with other data that really shouldn't be send anywhere. My question is whether this actually occurs, and if it's directly related to the Unity UI, as I'm currently running Lubuntu.01:50
mjaykMike41: afaik its unity specific01:51
TJ-Mike41: there is/was an Amazon shopping 'lens' or whatever Unity calls them which forwarded dash searches, which is user configurable. I'm not sure about the current state of those recently since I use Kubuntu.01:53

TJ-SatshiRole: Now THAT is unexpected!02:00

maddawg2technically my second interface is actually a VLAN interface (not a physical interface)02:08
TJ-Pinkamena_D: there's a PulseAudio module that can do loopback; that might be what you need02:08

SatshiRoleTJ-: Is that where you'd like me to start, or do you want to hear more about what I did, and the errors that occured?02:08
TJ-SatshiRole: it's far easy and quicker for use if we can see the logs; we often spot things quickly from experience that you may not realise are significant02:09

hazamonzo_ooft. What a pain. So I've just reinstalled Ubunti 15.10 (a couple of times today) due to Nvidia driver issues. I struggle to get into the OS on a fresh install unless i follow a strict process. Now... i have the OS installed and the Nvidia drivers working. The question is, for how long.. Is anyone who is familiar willing to look at the Xorg.log output for me to see if they can spot something out of the usual?02:24
hazamonzo_The reason being is that after a couple of reboots with zero changes... i'll have issues getting into the OS due to graphics problems02:24
TJ-Pinkamena_D: I recall doing that myself some time ago, for another purpose.02:24
TJ-hazamonzo_: cold or warm reboots? That can sometimes make a difference?02:25
daftykinshazamonzo_: let me guess, are you installing the download from their website?02:25
hazamonzo_Im worried that if i setup all the apps on this laptop again that i need it will just bork out on me :)02:25
hazamonzo_daftykins: Afraid not. Im doing it via the commandline (nvidia-352)02:26
daftykinswell that's good!02:26
hazamonzo_TJ-: Last time the OS failed to let me in was a cold boot02:26
hazamonzo_daftykins: I've been doing this a couple of times the last few days! :D02:26
TJ-hazamonzo_: is it a UEFI or BIOS system?02:26
hazamonzo_TJ-: Bios02:26
SatshiRoleTJ-: booting now. Nickname will be Rexter, or Rexter1.02:27
hazamonzo_Opted for Win7 on this system :)02:27
TJ-hazamonzo_: And, is it Optimus (hybrid) or only Nvidia ?02:27
hazamonzo_TJ-: One of the erros that i noticed before this fresh install in the Xorg log was issues with "finding a display"02:27
hazamonzo_TJ-: Hybrid. Intel and Nvidia K2100M02:28
hazamonzo_()K2100M is supported as far as the nvidia website is concerned for the 352 driver02:28
hazamonzo_I did notice an odd thing though02:28
hazamonzo_i get one error hen booting from the live dvd or the regular install02:29
TJ-hazamonzo_: OK, so the issue is likely to do with the system having issues with the Optimus config, and possibly setting up the video output incorrectly occassionally.02:29
hazamonzo_Some error about the intel i915 (can't remember the number) having issues loading02:29
hazamonzo_TJ-: I tink you might be right as the system is working fine now but its unstable when i restart02:29
TJ-hazamonzo_: possible sources of clues/help: /var/log/gpu-manager.log, run "sudo /usr/bin/prime-supported" and then look at /var/log/prime-supported.log, as well as /var/log/Xorg.0.log and friends02:30
hazamonzo_TJ-: Perfect! Let me have a look02:30
TJ-hazamonzo_: Optimus is a nightmare I steer well clear of!02:31
hazamonzo_TJ-: Noted. Im having a hard enough time as it is :D02:32
hazamonzo_I installed all my dev tools earlier only for the system to give me a hard time :(02:32
TJ-hazamonzo_: You've probably already checked, but there are sometimes settings to influence it in the BIOS Setup02:32
hazamonzo_TJ-: I didn't actually dig into the BIOS just yet02:33
hazamonzo_But i've been pointed in the direction of prime-select and bumblebee ect02:33
hazamonzo_Im... not a GPU guy...02:33
hazamonzo_TJ-: So prime-supported = yes02:34
hazamonzo_TJ-: And i can pastebin the Xorg.log if you have a moment to run your eyes over it for any unusual items?02:35
TJ-Bumblebee is deprecated now Nvidia has nvidia-prime, but we were discussing this earlier; Last time I dug in deep I found that -prime driver doesn't support MUX-less Optimus chipsets - that is, dual GPUs where the outputs are NOT switched between the GPUs using a multiplexer. That's caught a few people unawares but not sure if that support is still absent02:35
hazamonzo_I know that when i was having issues booting i had a couple of EE errors in there02:35
TJ-hazamonzo_: sure, more eyes the better02:35
hazamonzo_TJ-: Appreciated! One mo02:35
daftykinsnot gone into BIOS?! wowzer :)02:36

daftykinsah that's a rookie mistake, one time boot menus are far superior to messing with order02:37
daftykinsoh a xorg.conf has been made.02:37

daftykinsactually that fails to factor in fastboot i guess02:38
daftykinsnm, off topic02:38
hazamonzo_daftykins: lol. I was about to google it02:39
TJ-hazamonzo_: I'd suspect, when it goes wrong, you don't get this line: "[    21.875] (**) |-->Inactive Device "intel""02:39
TJ-daftykins: there always is with -prime02:39
wevaTJ- I have backups that are shown as "unknown" partitions..I think we were talking about it yesterday02:39
hazamonzo_TJ-: you think the intel card kicks into life or something and has issues?02:40
daftykinsTJ-: so maybe that user i mentioned needs to run nvidia-xconfig ? o002:40
daftykinsi've always had folk use prime with auto02:40
TJ-hazamonzo_: Yes, that'd be my best guess. If the Intel starts as the primary for some reason02:40
wevathe problem was that I created these partitions as backups before reinstalling system. I saw the data was transferred in them. but now they are there as "unknown" partitions02:41
hazamonzo_TJ-: There might be something to that... i see an error even on the live dvd thats related to the i915 or something?02:41
TJ-daftykins: the installer usually does it from what I've seen, but yes, possibly. Every -prime system I've looked at has a default xorg.conf with the GPUs listed.02:41
hazamonzo_And from what i've read thats an intel thing02:41
daftykinsTJ-: hmm, are we talking about something other than grabbing nvidia-352 and nvidia-prime together?02:42
TJ-hazamonzo_: yes, i915 is the driver for many recent Intel GPUs. Although, there are a few common warnings it puts out that can be safely ignored02:42
TJ-daftykins: not that I know of, but as you know I try to avoid -prime!02:42
hazamonzo_Hehehe. Is there a couple of configs i could check reagrding the loading of these cards?02:43
TJ-weva: does "sudo blkid /dev/sdXY" fail to identify any meta-data in them?02:43
TJ-hazamonzo_: I think it depends on which one is set as primary in BIOS, but that's a hunch not proven02:44
RexterTJ-: http://pastebin.com/vkLNxS2002:44
hazamonzo_TJ-: I assume there is no config where i can for the working Nvidia card to be primary. At least for now02:44
hazamonzo_I'd rather have an OS i can rely on that one that performs well on the battery :)02:45
TJ-hazamonzo_: Well, /etc/X11/xorg.conf is the xserver config but that was auto-generated and I'd trust it to be correct. The log you showed just now suggests everything is optimal using the Nvidia GPU, but if you want the low/high power switching you'll likely need to check BIOS settings first in case the Intel is disabled.02:46
wevaTJ- the command gives no output. it just jumps to command prompt02:46
TJ-weva: which suggests there's no intelligible metadata there02:47
hazamonzo_TJ-: Would there be any reason that the intel would be disabled as this is a brand new laptop and i haven't messed with the BIOS so far02:47
wevaTJ- but strings returned a ten-digit number with LUKS written in red next to it02:47
TJ-Rexter: hmmm, which user, 'mike' or 'aj' (or both) have the log-in issue?02:47
TJ-Rexter: this bothers me: "PAM unable to dlopen(pam_kwallet.so): /lib/security/pam_kwallet.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"02:48
TJ-Rexter: you have/had Kubuntu installed on that PC?02:48
SatshiRoleTJ-: Both users cannot log in. Mike is admin. No, just regular Ubuntu. I was able to log in both users, just a couple of hours ago.02:50
TJ-SatshiRole: line 185/186 might be important - looks like PAM is trying to authenticate to a Windows/Samba server )pam_winbind)02:51
hazamonzo_TJ-: Well im going to do a reboot and have a quick look at BIOS to see if i can spot anything. Lets hope i can get back afterwards! :D Thanks for your help02:53

TJ-SatshiRole: also line 177/178 suggests 'aj' is unknown to the unix password file02:54

amicrawlerused that no help03:09
amicrawlerwifi is Qualcomm Atheros Device 0041 (rev 20)03:09
TJ-hazamonzo: I wonder if the PC you have, is of that type. In which case, the Intel GPU would need to be active since MUX-less works by the nvidia doing the work but the Intel writing the framebuffer to the outputs, rather than with MUX systems where each GPU writes to its own framebuffers, and the outputs are switched between the 2 GPUs03:10
wevaalso gparted shows it is mounted at /home03:10

wevaI find a luks string in /dev/sdc9, but it turns out not to be a valid luks device..the question remains; what am I to do, where is my data that i saw there with my own eyes..:)03:15
TJ-weva: was /dev/sdc9 always an encrypted block device using LUKS, or was its data copied from an original LUKS device elsewhere?03:16
wevaTJ- it was created just before the data transfer to it. its data was copied from my hard drive, which was at least not home-folder encrypted.03:17

Scriptonautand I don't want to merely bind the command key to ctrl, that doesn't work very well in the terminal03:19
michael__Question about future compatibility03:19

michael__After Mir is released, will Xlib-based applications still work?03:20
wevaTJ- if you're asking me how I created the partition and transferred the files, I used all GUIs for them03:20
wevanautilus and gnome disk utility03:20
TJ-weva: Hmmm; wasn't aware they had LUKS format capabilities03:21
wevaI might have used gparted to do initial formats of drives..which made me think when I heard of mbr-gpt mismatch as a possible cause of this filesystem problem..03:21
SatshiRoleScriptonaut: what does the command key do in the terminal in OSX?03:22

TJ-weva: this is the kind of thing you'd expect to see: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13079742/03:28
VergilPrimeIs it possible to symlink files so that I can write code on my machine and have it automagically update code on another code via SSH?03:28

TJ-VergilPrime: Yes; use sshfs03:29

somsipVergilPrime: there are various types of software that allow syncing, either on demand or manually. git-sync, btsync for example03:29
TJ-VergilPrime: with sshfs you would directly edit the remote files, mounted in the local file-system03:30

=== user is now known as Guest64342
ScriptonautI dunno if ftp is the ideal setup though03:31
TJ-weva: I have no idea; any tool that does detached LUKS headers and doesn't inform you is bad. I wonder if that is even a LUKS device at all; it could be a 'plain' dm_crypt device with no LUKS header at all, in which case you'd need to know the key to unlock it03:31
VergilPrimeThis code is for prototyping so I generally preffer speed over anything else and I am used to A. deploying code on my own machine or B. using windows Notepad++ FTP that automagically uploads every time I save.03:31

adun153Hello everyone, my Enigmail on Thunderbird stopped working after I upgraded from 15.04 to 15.10. It doesn't ask me for my private key passphrase anymore,  and immediately returns this message when I try to open an encrypted message "Error - no matching private/secret key found to decrypt message"03:41
adun153"gpg --list-key" still lists my keys as being there.03:41
adun153What could I try out?03:42
TJ-weva: "Device crypt_sdc9 already exists" suggests some other tool already tried/did unlock the block device03:44
TJ-adun153: sounds like an issue with the password agent that (should) run in the session03:44
wevaTJ- I don't know about it..I entered my password for the first time since the partition has this state03:45
wevaTJ- this is how it currently looks: http://is.gd/nMkiti03:47
TJ-weva: something created /dev/mapper/crypt_sdc9, if it was there before you tried my 'cryptsetup open ...' suggestion03:48
wevaTJ- I, too, first noticed it after I entered my passphrase03:49
TJ-weva: You'll have to research what the tools you used to encrypt the partition actually did/do, since it obviously is NOT LUKS - unless the tools used detached headers, but that makes no sense, since the first 4KB was left blank, which is where the header should be. It looks to me as if something wiped the original header out03:52
wevaTJ-, that is probably the whole story behind the switching of the partition from encrypted LUKS label to "unknown"...if I could only know what happened. the same kind of damage on three different drives.03:54
wevaand at the same time interval03:55
wevaspeaking of two of them, also at the same time03:55
wevaTJ- frostschutz had last written that I should do " losetup --read-only --offset=thenumber, then cryptsetup luksDump the loop device"03:57
wevaTJ- does it point to another approach?03:57
TJ-If 'something' added that /dev/mapper/crypt_sdc9 node that 'something' must have some configuration somewhere telling it to do that, since there is no metadata attached to /dev/sdc9 itself. If you find that config data it might help you figure out what is going on03:57
TJ-if you've got /dev/mapper/crypt_sdc9 is it possible you've got 2 layers of encryption going on?03:58
wevaTJ- where might I need to look in? under /dev/mapper there is a file named crypt_sdc03:58
TJ-weva: in other words, is there a LUKS header in that device?03:58
wevasorry crypt_sdc903:58
TJ-weva: "sudo cryptsetup -v isLuks /dev/mapper/crypt_sdc9" for example?03:59

=== obli-AWAY is now known as AbyssOne
mikubuntusamssammerz: abiword has been loading for at least 5 minutes now and still not displaying the data from the file07:15
samssammerzmikubuntu, Yes, a spreadsheet or database would be better than a textfile. This will let you at least break things up into fields like first name, last name, street, city, etc ... if you are just searching through the textfile with regex, you'll have all kinds of problems.07:15
mengazoVergilPrime: 501 most likely represents the read, write, and execute permissions of your files. Make sure to check the owner, too. Enter "ls -la" to determine the owner07:16
samssammerz(for instance, the word "james" would match "James Connor", "711 St. James Ave", and "Jamestown, VA"07:16
mikubuntusamssammerz: so should the file have been provided to me in a different type than .txt?07:16
mikubuntusamssammerz: what are typical database file types?07:16
mengazoVergilPrime: Owner information is normally listed in the third column of that output from "ls -la"07:16
samssammerzmikubuntu, If the only thing you are doing is storing names/addresses/phone #'s etc and looking them up, then you just need a spreadsheet, not a database.07:17
mikubuntusamssammerz: i'm sure the office that provided the file probably uses windows07:17
mikubuntusamssammerz: so could i populate a linux spreadsheet using the .txt file that was provided to me?07:18
mikubuntusamssammerz: you are correct, i want to be able to sort by first name, last name, etc.07:18
mikubuntusamssammerz: abiword STILL 'loading,' i know this isn't supposed to work like this .. lol07:19
samssammerzmikubuntu, Yes, assuming that the entries in the file are in some kind of consistent format. Also, how large is the file?07:19
mengazoVergilPrime: Check out this, as well: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sshfs#Checklist. The last mentioned step should be helpful07:20
samssammerzmikubuntu, I mean, if you are dealing with some enormous # of entries (millions of names), then using an actual database might be warranted.07:20
mikubuntusamssammerz: this particular subfile is 138 mb07:20

MoL0ToVhowto configure a linux domain? i want to save home directories on unique server and authenticate users with this server07:21
mengazoVergilPrime: And if the owner of those sshfs files are something other than what you're expecting, keep in mind that the "1" in "501" indicates what level of permission *other* users apart from the owner have over those files07:22
samssammerzmikubuntu, Ah, ok - that's still too big though for a spreadsheet. I would look into using MySQL or PostgreSQL.07:23
mengazoVergilPrime: The "1" means that other users can only execute, which means that other users can't read or write to those files07:23
mikubuntusamssammerz: where could i get some help with that?07:23
hateballMoL0ToV: Will the domain consist of only Linux machines or will you mix OS's ?07:24
MoL0ToVhateball: only linux07:24
VergilPrimeeven sudo ls -la tells me that the file perms are ?????????07:24
mengazoVergilPrime: You would need to change that "1" to a "6" for read and write permissions, or "7" for read, write, and execute permissions (use only for scripts, programs, and directories)07:25
hateballMoL0ToV: I would setup OpenLDAP for auth, mount /home over NFS for client machines07:25
samssammerzmikubuntu, If you've never used MySQL before, I would start by using a search engine to find some tutorials on it. If you have further questions (after doing some reading), you can ask in #mysql07:26
MoL0ToVhateball, yellowpages is not best?07:26
mengazoVergilPrime: Go to the server that's hosting the SSH service and determine/fix the permissions from there07:26
mengazoVergilPrime: UNIX permissions are a bit tricky to learn at first. Here's a reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_system_permissions#Numeric_notation07:27
mikubuntusamssammerz: ok i'll see what i can figure out -- just looking at this page now: http://www.gfi.com/blog/top-10-free-database-tools-for-sys-admins/07:27
VergilPrimeperms on the remote host show that I am owner :I07:27
VergilPrimeI don't necessarily want to let anyone mess with these files, but I am their owner on both machines and I am not entirely sure how to get my machine to realize that.07:28
hateballMoL0ToV: Suppose it would do as well. Using openldap should let you be more flexible in case you need to introduce other OS or applications I think07:28
samssammerzmikubuntu, Honestly, the suggestions in that blog post are pretty terrible. I'd highly recommend looking into MySQL, PostgreSQL or some other actively developed project - you will get a lot more support, better documentation/tutorials, and less bugs.07:29
hateballMoL0ToV: http://www.ltsp.org/ has lots of good documentation about some of this stuff07:29
samssammerzmikubuntu, Also, just a heads up that there is going to be quite a bit of a learning curve to learn how to use a database, but once you learn the basics, it will be a skill that you can apply in many different areas.07:29
mikubuntusamssammerz: okey dokey then -- thx :P07:30
samssammerzmikubuntu, You're welcome. Good luck!07:30
mengazoVergilPrime: Do both the user you're logged in as on your client machine and the owner on the remote server have the same uid?07:30

plHi. I know my question is specific but I'll try anyway. I upgraded a thinkpad x250 from 15.04 to 15.10, it went fine, but now the system often freezes completely (does not even reply to pings). A hard reboot is needed. This happens quite often. Do you know what issue could it be?09:59
samssammerzpl, when does it freeze? at boot? or random times during use?10:00
Seveaspl: smells like kernel or driver issues. Are you using the normal ubuntu kernel? Any binary drivers (amd, nvidia...) in use?10:01
plsamssammerz, at random times during use, while doing nothing special10:01
samssammerzpl, Have you checked your log files (dmesg, etc) for clues as to what might be causing it?10:01
plSeveas, no proprietary stuff, the laptop is almost 100% intel hardware10:01
plsamssammerz, as it freezes completely I can't use dmesg :(10:02
Seveaspl: noting in /var/log/syslog either after reboot?10:02
plI have to check10:02
Seveasmaybe make a cronjob that saves dmesg output every minute. There could be symptoms showing up just before the hang10:03
samssammerzpl, You can check after reboot, before it freezes.10:03
=== gms is now known as Guest64515
plThanks, I will check the logs10:04
plIf I want to try an older kernel in 15.10, is there an easy way to install it from the official repository?10:04
samssammerzpl, And in the worse case, if you can't boot up long enough to do that, you can boot into a liveCD, mount the root partition and just look at the log files that way.10:04
plsamssammerz, it normally lasts enough time, even one hour or so10:05
Seveaspl: you can add the 15.04 repos to sources.list and apt-get install linux-image-$old_version10:07
plDo you think it's fine if I download linux-image-3.19.0-15-generic from the Vivid archives and install it (dpkg -i) ?10:07
plI really don't want to mix the packages10:07
Seveasyou'll need more than linux-image-* probably (linux-image-extra, linux-headers)10:08
Seveasbut it should be fine to install with dpkg after manual downloading10:08
plwell, thanks10:08
samssammerzpl, It might be OK, but installing an older kernel version could also cause problems if there are any currently installed packages that depend on the current kernel version. I would suggest trying to look at the log files and fix the problems with the current kernel, rather than downgrading.10:08
Seveassamssammerz: that's very rare though, the only time that was really a problem was in the younger days of udev10:09
plsamssammerz, I agree, but in the meantime I really need to have the laptop working...10:09
plEven if it's fixed in linux 4.3, it will take a while to get it10:10
samssammerzSeveas, Indeed, it would probably be OK. But it would also be untested, so who knows? ... and in the meantime, it would just be better to fix the problem, which is probably a really simple issue with drivers10:10
samssammerzpl, It might be something really simple. Take a moment to look at the logs, see if it's something easy before downgrading.10:10
plwill do, samssammerz10:11
plbut I'm not so sure it's a trivial issue, after all it worked fine with ubuntu 15.04, so it's probably a regression that needs to be fixed upstream10:11
samssammerzpl, Perhaps. But after looking at the logs (which will take a couple of minutes), you might discover that it's a known bug with a known solution.10:12
plsamssammerz, I can't do it now, I don't have that laptop with me right now, but for sure I'll check later today10:13
dionysus69hello all can you explain me how this works? I have a boot menu at startup with debian windows loader and hard drive name, if I select debian i get a grub menu as expected, if I push windows lodaer, I get windows and if I push hard drive I get windows, why does hard drive default to windows bootloader instead of grub? I just have 1 efi partition with all those records inside it.10:13
MonkeyDustdionysus69  this is ubuntu, not debian10:14

dionysus69ugh I know but its same10:16
dionysus69I actually have ubuntu too10:16
ubottudionysus69: Ubuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/i386/what-is-debian.html - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!10:16
cfhowlettdionysus69, somehow, I doubt that ... and it's NOT the same.  ask #debian.10:17
dionysus69grub is same but ok you dont have to answer lmfo10:17
MonkeyDustdionysus69  type /j #debian10:18
samssammerzdionysus69, They are not the same. Ubuntu is a buggy, bloated bastardization of Debian. But it's OK, because Ubuntu has the latest and gr8est softiez ...10:18

quantalrabbitThe mainline builds i'm trying are actually on this page: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/10:57
Seveasquantalrabbit: that's not entirely surprising, you're installing a kernel that's 3 years newer than your userland.10:58
quantalrabbitSeveas: I guess I should have expected this would happen...10:59
Seveasquantalrabbit: you might be able to install it when manually compiling, but those packages are not meant for 12.0410:59
quantalrabbitquantalrabbit: i see.  that might too much trouble in the long run.  was hoping that ubuntu 12.04 could have support for skylake goodness.11:00

wamok never mind11:30
nikolamDOES btrfs snapshot of root (@) , snapshots also @/home by default maybe??11:33
ikonianikolam: it does anything that hangs off the root file system on that same volume11:36
ikoniaif it's on a different volume, then no11:36
nikolamikonia, well default install on ubuntu is at "@" subvolume" and /home is at "@home" volume  so I suppose it does not11:38
ikonianikolam: I'd assume no then11:38
nikolamBut it something else hangs on root file systema nd it is another volume?11:38
nikolamI made more volumes, for other disks and share volum11:39
ikonianikolam: can you pastebin the output of "mount" and "df -h" in a pastebin, lets see what it looks like11:39
nikolamikonia, http://pastebin.com/5bPsa56M let me clean some snapshot and files, I was thinking just to ask the defaults, thanks.11:40
ikonianikolam: that looks to me like it will take home as home and / are on the same volume11:42
nikolamikonia, they are on differend subvolumes I presume?11:43

nikolamI expect it like that?11:43
JessicaJung_hi guys, if you install a kernel, will it replace the existing kernel you use in your system?11:50
nikolamikonia, seems like btrfs-tools are at 3.12-1 version in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and kernel is at 3.19.0-3111:51
k1l_JessicaJung_: you can only boot one kernel at a time. you can choose in grub with wich kernel you want to boot11:51
nikolamCould be Ubuntu problem with not upgraded tools in LTS release, for production ?11:51
ikonianikolam: it's hard to be clear on, the docs are not solid, I'd assume it does te subvolume named root only11:51
ikoniabut from looking at the top level volume, it should do the whole lot11:52
=== wolf is now known as Guest74543
nikolamikonia, I actually had issue with btrfs send  is very slow , that is where question of maybe not upgraded btrfs-tools in LTS arised11:53
JessicaJung_k1 l_: does it like, delete the existing kernel or you have to manually delete it, I'm running 14.04 LTS and I just downloaded the werewolf kernel11:53
k1l_JessicaJung_: no, it doesnt delete the old one. like i said the new one will added to the list in grub. there you can decide what kernel to boot11:54
nikolamikonia, I got question: "Are you using the 3.13 kernel and 3.12 btrfs-progs?" So obviously Ubuntu did not update btrfs-tools when updating kernel... (!)11:55

lotuspsychjevak: got any further with your issue?12:08

SkubbAll documentation points to fresh installs but my set-up has remained unchanged since 2013 with Ubuntu 12-1012:37
BluesKajhi ArchNoob12:37
ikoniaSkubb: extend the logical volume12:37
SkubbI have extended the logical volume however my home still reported 233 GB instead of 480 GB12:38
ikoniaSkubb: exten the logical volume then12:39
nikolamSkubb, you can use btrfs and do it all at that level12:39
SkubbIm using Ext4 and do not want to change FS or have a fresh install12:39
frostschutzSkubb, did you grow the filesystem after making the volume larger? resize2fs12:39
nikolammigrating from ext4 to btrfs is easy an dyou won't need LVm anymore, because it is integrated12:40
crlcan81I know this is likely not the place for questions specific to a program that is available on other things besides Ubuntu but I've not really found any irc support for this program in particular, and have already attempted to send emails to the people who run this particular audio stream am still awaiting an answer. I wish to play a local college station's web based audio stream using another program then what is 'default' for such things, and12:40
crlcan81can't seem to get it to 'save' instead of download and launch using chrome, and when it loads using VLC it doesn't tell me anything at all about the stream so I can use the same data to open it using the program I want to try and use.12:40
BernzelAnyone got a suggestion on what to do if I don't have enough room on my ssd to update the given updates from Software Updater? I've already removed as much as I can. Should I just ignore them?12:40
SkubbI did; I used the default set-up Ubuntu 12-10 which automated the process for LVM/LUKS12:40

nikolamext4 is stupid because doesn't have snapshots, send, checksums, raid..12:41
SkubbI dont want to change to btrfs, I want to know how to update home with the additional space12:41
nikolamok sorry Skubb12:41
crlcan81I'm using 14.04 LTS Ubuntu, not sure exact version at the moment but I can find out, and I am not using Unity either, but attempt to use as close to default on programs that I can while allowing me to customize the setup to my needs.12:41
Bernzelcfhowlett, I've done that. Still not near enough room :/12:41
frostschutzSkubb, needs more info then... df -h /home/your/name/ should display the device and filesystem size; blockdev --getsize64 /dev/device should give you the device size; result?12:42

bodomHi there14:48
Daffyhmm i see what you're saying i think.14:49
=== BOHverkill is now known as BOHverkill___
DaffyMaybe it's not the actual max i'm looking at but rather a range it's currently running at?14:49
DaffyThat doesn't seem right though. lscpu also is listing it as 1.90 max.14:50
Val_EriC^^: It hangs like there is a process running invisibly14:50
Val_ctrl-c breaks it14:50
rafael_HELP. My Ubuntu 15.10 won't  shutdown. [Sorry bad english]14:51
EriC^^Daffy: do something cpu intensive maybe14:52
Palm_premiumrafael_: sudo shutdown -hP now14:52
EriC^^Val_: try it in cron14:52
BluesKajrafael_, ctl+alt+delete?14:53
Palm_premiumrafael_: is it hanging during the process of shutting down or are you getting an error?14:53
Daffywould running a couple tabs playing youtube videos work?14:55
EriC^^try for i in {0..100000000}; do echo $(($i+$i)); done14:55
Val_EriC^^: No go I'm afraid. It shows as executing in syslog but no rtorrent14:56
EriC^^maybe drop a couple zeros14:57
frostschutzVal_, if you're open to alternative solutions, I run rtorrent in a screen using https://github.com/frostschutz/Screen-Manager (which lets you sm start rtorrent, sm attach rtorrent, sm stop rtorrent, also in cron)14:58
EriC^^Val_: what about /tmp/script.log ?14:58
Val_ah hah!14:59

Guest13004Hi, I am looking for help with setuid and setgid. I want to start xampp as root user with out having to type password everytime. If I understood correctly, it can be done with setuid and set gid. This is how I did it:15:05
Guest13004rain@rain:/opt/lampp$ sudo chown root managger-linux-x64.run15:05
Guest13004[sudo] password for rain:15:05
Guest13004rain@rain:/opt/lampp$ sudo chmod u+s manager-linux-x64.run15:05
Guest13004rain@rain:/opt/lampp$  ./manager-linux-x64.run15:05
EriC^^Val_: sorry, got dc15:05
Guest13004Now it runs but not as root15:05
Guest13004Because it does not have permissions to start/stop apache15:05
Val_EriC^^ no worries, I'll repeat the last15:05
Val_EriC^^: /home/ipt/strt.sh: 24: /home/ipt/strt.sh: [[: not found15:05
Val_EriC^^ if [[ -z $(pgrep -u $USER rtorrent) ]]; then15:05
Guest13004And I still have to use sudo ...15:05
Guest13004Any ideas how to get it work?15:06
Val_Fynn, When I bootcamped to Windows I sometimes had to hold the option (I think) key down to get the boot menu - maybe that will help you?15:06
EriC^^Val_: maybe it's running the script with sh15:06
Val_EriC^^: #!/bin/bash at the head of the script. Is there a way to explicitly invoke bash in the crontab?15:07
EriC^^Val_: in the crontab type bash /path/to/script15:08
Val_k, thats easy enough :D15:08
Daffycould it be something with the gallium driver?15:09
Daffykidn of terrified to switch to the proprietary driver... last time it bent my system over and boinked it.15:10
artoiswhat's that mean?15:10
artoisyou had to reinstall the open source one?15:10
artoissounds like the worst possible outcome! :p15:11
Val_EriC^^: pgrep: invalid user name: rtorrent (from bash /home/ipt/strt.sh in crontab)15:11
Daffyno, it messed everything up even for the open source one.15:11
Daffyreverting back left a ton of problems.15:11
EriC^^Val_: you're adding it in crontab -e?15:11
Val_EriC^^ yes15:12
EriC^^try pgrep -u rtorrent in a shell15:12
EriC^^oh nevermind15:13
Val_same message :D15:13
EriC^^Val_: modify the script15:13
BluesKajDaffy, intel graphics ?15:13
EriC^^this line15:13
EriC^^just set it to USER=rtorrent15:13
alteregoawhere can i get configure options from ubuntu packages?15:14
EriC^^Val_: or put it in the rtorrent user's cron, sudo crontab -u rtorrent -e15:16
EriC^^actually don't nevermind15:17
DaffyHmm even dmidecode -t 4 reads it back as that.15:18
Daffymax speed 1900Mhz.. current speed 1900Mhz.15:18
Daffythat's like.. the minimum speed this goes.15:18
Daffythe version and cpu info is correct though.15:19
AvocetVIStrying to create a ipv6 tunnel using hurricane electric and here's what I got >> http://pastebin.com/xjWvVwvF   - I should mention there is also a vpn server setup on this machine. and the machine itself is actually a vps15:19
Guest49226does anyone know of a way to force a drive to be say /dev/sdb or /dev/sda. I have a raid with a drive having issues, one is /dev/sda and the other is /dev/sdb but no matter which drive I pull on reboot the leftover one is now /dev/sda15:20
EriC^^Guest49226: udev rule maybe15:20
Guest49226EriC^^ is that something I can assign a /dev/sdX* to a UUID or something?15:21
BluesKajnot familiar enough anymore with amd graphics and their manydrivers and options , seems kind of hit and miss15:22
Val_Well, that's beaten me up enough for today. Thanks, EriC^^, frostschutz15:22
