daftykinsguy can't even work out when a path exists :(00:25
TJ-You wonder why I'm quiet?!00:26
Bashing-omSgt Schartz: " I know nuthing " .00:27
TJ-oh love-er-ly ... Ubuntu with snappy packaging is now termed "Ubuntu Personal" and everything preceeding it is called 'legacy applications'00:29
TJ-Way-to-go in marginalising00:29
daftykinsonce standard .deb packages are gone, that's really going to cut off some of the bridges ubuntu has as a distro, no?00:30
TJ-They won't go, but this push to Snappy is doing what the push to Unity/Phone did, but moreso00:31
TJ-Turn off a large part of the settled casual techy base why can choose to go elsewhere, leaving the clueless users and the bleeding-edge devs and very little in between00:31
daftykinsit did seem to me like snappy might spell a time to move off ubuntu, yeah00:33
TJ-I love the technical idea; it is long overdue, but I hate the way it feels like it is dictated without consultation even with active users/supporters like us.00:34
TJ-binary diffs, contained apps that don't cause dependency issues outside their own requirements, that's all good stuff and means users can get more up-to-date application versions even long into, say, an LTS cycle, without the pain of backports00:36
Bashing-om@ 10.04 I became comfortanle with ubuntu, then the changes just kept coming . Now I like what I have, and I have no desire for any changes . What am I to do in this new world .00:36
TJ-I'm going to drop my oar in on the 'convergence' meetings, regarding lack of developer design/support/testing for decent multi-monitor/GPU configurations00:38
TJ-And I want to see if there's a QA session where I can bring up the need for automated fault detection and reporting, by monitoring log files00:39
Bashing-omTJ-: ^ great thought .. wonderful way to build a solid data base .00:42
TJ-The only one I see is the 16.04 LTS Desktop QA Plan tomorrow/today 1600 UTC00:42

daftykinsis it?05:00
daftykinswhen was encrypted usage shared?05:00
OerHeksYes, <OerHeks> DDR, i hope your /home is not encrypted with that nginx setup05:00
OerHeks[05:45:01] <DDR> It doesn't show that. I must have messed that up.05:00
OerHeks[05:45:14] <DDR> OerHeks: It is. Why?05:00
OerHeks15 min ago05:00
daftykinsdifferent channel?05:01
OerHeksno in #ubuntu05:01
daftykinshmm missed that one :D05:01
OerHeksI noticed, so i took the liberty to say it here again05:01
OerHeksso sad seeing people help, without all the info05:02
OerHeksalso BAD from this guy, not to mention his setup05:02
daftykinsyeah :(05:03
daftykinsmmm thanks for the warning there :)05:09
daftykinsglad i didn't try any further with that one05:09
OerHeksagain this channel is needed for backtalks05:11
daftykins:D absolutely05:12
daftykinsi'm really glad it's here now, makes the volunteering so much easier05:12
BluesKajhiyas all12:34
OerHeksheya !14:44
daftykinshow's OerHeks today? :)14:44
daftykins(brb fetching lunch)14:44
OerHeksI feel shaken.14:45
OerHeksYou know, when you know you did zomething, someone else says you didn't ...14:45
OerHeksJust found out, i paid 2x rent in may 2011 .. so i get a month return14:46
OerHeksIt always crossed my mind, i am a fool but i know what i do.14:46
daftykinsyay :D14:50
daftykinshaha i did something like that, i paid my water bill manually when it's set to come out automatically14:50
daftykinsso one quarter i had like £1.30 to pay :D14:50
daftykinsTJ-: afternoon sir o/14:50
TJ-Hiya... off again... damned IPv6 isn't being used again!14:51
daftykinsoh dear not pikapi again14:52
OerHeksthe troll yes14:53
TJ-Grrrr, I'm so angry right now I want to drop a nuke on the Chinese devs that were responsible for the code in the CPE!15:04
cfhowlettplease don't tj.  I'm in Beijing and have no way to get to a fallout shelter in time.15:05
TJ-:D I'll program it to leave you a nice little garden15:06
TJ-Besides, I doubt they're in Beijing... more likely much further south!15:06
TJ-Damned thing 'forgot' the WAN and LAN-side IPv6 specific settings ... but nothing else, and I couldn't figure out why the LAN had no connectivity!15:07
TJ-I'm even more pissed off now! I signed up for the UoS UEFI session, 1500 today, just got it sorted in time ... and there's no sign of the session, its even disappeared from the UoS web-site!!15:09
* TJ- rolls eyes ... yay! moved to 1800 Wednesday ... no warning!15:09
daftykinsTJ-: some ISP supplied box?15:10
TJ-daftykins: Nope, Zyxel stuff I've been hacking; this one has the OEM stock firmware in. The others I've been porting OpenWRT too but that's a slow job so they aren't connected to VDSL yet15:10
TJ-It makes be cry to watch the boot-console ... so many warnings/errors scroll by. Amazing it works at all15:11
daftykinsah i didn't know you did that :D good little router OS that one15:12
daftykinsjust volunteering i take it?15:12
TJ-I've been doing it for a Scandanvian ISP. I have 3 hooked up to my serial multiplexer so I can work on them15:13
daftykinsi'd love to get off the stock firmware on this Technicolor i have from my ISP15:13
daftykinsat least you can disable TR.069 via telnet15:14
TJ-Yes. The problem is shoe-horning in all the binary-only VDSL support on these devices15:19
daftykinsah :(15:20
daftykinswhy do they do it that way?15:20
daftykinssecret sauce modem chatter? :D15:20
TJ-Typical proprietary stuff; much if it taken unchanged from Broadcom, and you know what they're like15:22
BluesKajbeen thinking of flashing my tp-link 3600 router with openwrt, but I don't have the nerve since the current oem seems to work fine15:22
daftykinsmmm usually not worth the risk if you don't have a backup15:22
TJ-So a F/OSS build has to both figure out the low-level API and ABI to be compatible, AND separate the proprietary stuff out so it can be individually installed by end-users but not distributed. It makes for a complete mess.15:23
BluesKajdaftykins, yeah , it's difficult to suppress that urge to tinker, like Dr Strangelove :-)15:23
TJ-Generally router firmware updates are trouble-free these days, especially since most provide a web-interface to do it. The thing to always remember is BACKUP a TEXT version of the settings - even if that means writing them down on paper - and resetting the config before/after a firmware update to ensure the new version uses a correct config15:24
daftykinsTJ-: indeed, i got tricked doing a friends 3com ADSL router once which wiped itself on update, despite having a friendly GUI15:25
TJ-the problem being, the config is stored in NVRAM, and different versions change the place/variable/string and values of some settings. Inheriting config from a different version can cause the config parse to choke15:25
daftykinsthankfully it's just a phone call to our main local ISP for a password ;D15:25
BluesKajTJ-, I do have the original firmware binary(s) just in case15:26
TJ-daftykins: that's worrying!15:26
TJ-they should only have a hashed version15:27
daftykinsi'm following a friends advice to buy a little embedded box with 3 NICs to setup this config i need for Spain where some traffic will be sent over a VPN depending on rules15:28
daftykinshe's a pfsense fan ;)15:29
daftykinsTJ-: hey how do you fancy being posted a Technicolor TG789vn v3 to play with? ;) i see a TG582n is already in the support table15:31
daftykinsoh maybe not working though :D15:31
TJ-If you can wait a year :D I'm so overloaded I don't know where to turn currently :D15:32
TJ-Usually I just run off with the Huskies :D15:32
daftykinsi'll walk them for a month! ;)15:33
daftykinshehe, in fairness i should probably just buy a proper router instead of using the ISP supplied one15:34
daftykinsit only does 130Mbps 802.11n15:34
TJ-'only' !!15:34
TJ-some folks are SO spoiled :D15:34
daftykinsbut then i'm sane and use lovely cat6 to all my gear15:35
daftykinsmy 17th century place here is made of 2+ foot thick guernsey granite, so that hampers things15:35
TJ-My VDSL originally did 11Mbps... now down to 8Mbps due to crosstalk, and that is with the help of the passive G.Vector and better codecs in these Zyxels. Without that the BT-supplied Huewai manages about 6Mbps15:36
TJ-When we (my company) used to do those kinds of installs we'd generally put the WAP in the loft space with directional antennas beaming down through the floors. Only time we were caught out was when be discovered the building had beena  former radiation labatory and had faraday cages all round every room!15:37
daftykinsi guess you've got quite the rural spot?15:37
daftykinswow that's quite the niche setup15:38
TJ-Yes, but a good quality copper line 2km out, so lucky to get any type of VDSL15:38
TJ-There's a few hills else we'd put in a simple mcirowave link and be able to take a feed from next to the street cabinet15:39
daftykinsouch yeah that's quite the run15:41
daftykinsmy line sync here: MaxBitRateDown : 51608000 bps (51.6 Mbps)   MaxBitRateUp 20086000 bps (20.0 Mbps)15:41
daftykinsreported by "unpnc -s" from the miniupnpc package, pretty handy that :D15:42
daftykinsas the router web admin doesn't even tell you15:42
TJ-I'm looking for a new place somewhere much further North as well so no point investing too much on it here. I'm planning on digging in my own fibre for the new location. It's a pain figuring out the potential POPs for a fibre connection though, even when there's lots of dark fibre around.15:43
daftykinsi was just reading a post on a news site about a farmer guy in Scandinavia somewhere that laid his own 8km run of fibre for about £30,00015:44
daftykinser, or was that £3,00015:44
TJ-30k sounds about right15:44
TJ-the hard part is when you've got to run along public highways15:45
daftykinsah no, $4000 USD15:45
daftykinsis UK law awkward about that?15:45
TJ-No, but you generally need a specialist company to do that part. The hard part is, you have to notify all public utilities or the intended route so they can send out engineers to mark on the ground where their cables/pipes/services are, and knowing who to talk to is the hard part.15:48
TJ-Makes sense, since you could be digging up electric, gas, water, other fibre, copper phone, private links and other stuff15:49
daftykinsyeah, i suppose it has to be buried15:57
daftykinsi just started installing kubuntu 15.10 in a VM... wow.15:57
daftykinsnever seen such an incredibly odd looking desktop15:57
TJ-haha! I can't watch the UoS live streams because...15:59
TJ-... they require Adobe Flash!15:59
daftykinswow, shame on Canonical15:59
daftykinsdon't fancy infecting your systems with chromium and pepperflash? :)16:00
TJ-UoS is a total joke16:00
TJ-Nope, I don't allow proven insecure stuff16:00
daftykinsa very fair choice16:00
OerHekson chrome the video's do show..16:01
daftykinsah so you can't anonymously view, how annoying16:02
TJ-Apparently, the Live feeds are Flash only16:04
TJ-This is the kind of thing that tells me Canonical/Ubuntu is not serious about the Freedom in F/OSS; liek using Google Hangouts too... requiring registration with Google.16:05
daftykinsthat is pretty terrible16:06
TJ-They take the Summits online instead of real-life conferences... to me that infers a responsibility to ensure the delivery is polished and much better, not piecemeal, disorganised, and proprietary16:06
TJ-Looks like the rest of my week is free then; this is a pointless waste of time. Disappointed in Ubuntu.16:08
TJ-People complaining the sound is unintelligable too16:12
daftykinsi'm annoyed i can't just watch without reg16:16
TJ-do you have a launchpad account?16:17
TJ-it uses UbuntuONE SSO so you can just use that ID16:17
BluesKajnot impressed with the direction shuttleworth has taken, looks too much like the redhat path to enterprise16:17
TJ-BluesKaj: that's the thing; he wants Canonical to make a profit, and that will only come from Enterprise16:18
TJ-The push to phones and tablets is as much to do with being able to take a percentage, but that is what has caused so much disaffection for the desktop users that made Ubuntu16:19
BluesKajnot happy with 250 million he received for his company in South Africa I reckon16:19
TJ-I thought Thawte sold for more than that. However, he's sunk a great deal into Canonical/Ubuntu so there's no argument there. My issue has become the way it has been dressed up as a 'Community' when it isn't16:20
daftykinsdid he just sell something down there?16:20
TJ-No, years ago, that's how he became independently wealthy. Thawte was an upstart Certificate Authority that undercut Verisign16:20
BluesKajit's sad for kubuntu, we don't know what the future holds16:20
TJ-BluesKaj: I doubt much; I was considering devoting a lot of my time to Kubuntu as a developer but the way things have gone I'd be wasting my time.16:21
daftykinsah i see16:21
TJ-Canonical was getting through £20-50 million a year the last I checked; someone has got to pay the developers wages, and that needs to be paying customers.16:22
BluesKajTJ-, wish you'd change your mind, we need all the help we can get ...I'm not dev but i like testing what's in the pipe so to speak, running on 16.04 as we speak16:23
BluesKajBlue Systems has supposedly taken Kubuntu under it's wing , but I don't see a lot of communication from them16:24
TJ-BluesKaj: I don't like the approach of Kubuntu; I'm not interested in just wrapping KDE projects in debian packaging, which is all it amounts to. And it is SO disorganised, no well-defined process, as a Dev you're going to spend most time trying to figure out how to work with the tooling16:24
TJ-I suggested a fix for an issue last week, which made most sense as an Ubuntu-specific patch in the packaging and was told be sitter that "we don't do that" and "upstream must approve all patches" - what's the point of packaging a separate distro if upstream calls the shots?16:26
* BluesKaj nods16:27
BluesKajI ran debian jessie with kde a few months back just to what changes had been made between kubuntu 14.04 and jessie , there were some differences like th audio backend etc , but effectively the 2 distros had more similarities than differences.16:37
daftykinsprobably a good sign to jump ship to debian then, may as well get it at source than via a third party, so to speak16:39
daftykinsBashing-om: hiya o/16:39
BluesKajdaftykins, well, if kubuntu goes away then debian and kde it is, for me at least16:40
Bashing-omdaftykins: Getting back in the saddle, 'nother fun ride (?) . A good day to ya !16:40
BluesKajnot interested in mint or netrunner or any of those wannabe's16:40
daftykinsBashing-om: :D seems a *little* better today, users in #ubuntu wise16:41
Bashing-omdaftykins: I have my doubts about "better" seeing Sergey's stubborness . Lead a user to good practice, can not make them .... !16:43
daftykinsi see he used the intel graphics driver installer too =|16:44
daftykinscommon mistake that one16:44
Bashing-omI have yet to see a good result by overriding Intel default open source graphic's driver. Now that is a fact .16:45
daftykins*nod* just messy PPAs to clean up after16:48
daftykinsTJ-: your favourite pal weva is back16:48
TJ-I just got back too; been out venting my frustration :D16:49
OerHeksi spoke to weva earlier, he is blaiming us for the help .. but the whole story is a bit strange.16:50
daftykinsah no good deed goes unpunished16:50
TJ-blaming us? in what way?16:52
OerHeksdd-ing a faulty drive .. then mounting the images .. now the original hdd is ruined .. shoot me.16:54
daftykinsugh a client wants to drive 2 x 2560x1440 res screens from a laptop and wants me to find one with a budget of £300-40016:54
OerHeksluks+lvm, when something goes wrong, we did it.16:55
TJ-I did a lot of diagnosis and he claimed some GUI tool created the encrypted devices, but I could make no sense of it16:58
TJ-I think it was supposedly gnome disks, if there is such a thing16:59
OerHeksYes, i tried to read back, no suck action is said by us, only on the copy16:59
TJ-When I joined in he was trying to find frostshultz or some similar nickname17:00
daftykinsyeah that guy spoke a few lines then ran away quickly17:01
OerHeksoh now it was not on this channe;17:01
TJ-I've pulled in all the IRC logs; I'll see what the history is17:02
OerHeksI am about to ask what channel ..17:02
OerHeksthe last 2-3 days were many encrypted dudes with problems..17:03
TJ-looks like this is the start:17:04
TJ-/tmp/2015-11-01-#ubuntu.txt:[22:57] <weva> hello everyone, I created and mounted some disk images on my home folder. and I moved them elsewhere be17:04
TJ-cause my drive warned that there was no more free space. but after moving them, it still shows zero free space17:04
OerHeksjups that is the start17:04
TJ-I'll pastebin what grep pulled out17:05
daftykinsoh dear that daftykins fellow stuck his beak in ;)17:11
daftykinscaught a whiff of 'LUKS' then ran for the hills17:11
OerHeksthe original issue: <weva>frostschutz, 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"17:11
TJ-:D I don't know why! LUKS is the best thing to come for Linux encryption!17:11
OerHeksso goodbye data17:12
daftykinsi just don't have a clue of encryption at all :)17:12
TJ-OerHeks: right; I don't believe it was LUKS at all. I suspect it was plain dm_crypt but as he used some GUI tool there's no knowing. The block device certainly did NOT have a LUKS header, although the encrypted data did start at a 4MiB offset17:13
TJ-daftykins: time to get up-to-speed on it :)17:13
daftykinsnaaah i'll never use it :>17:13
OerHeksglad someone in an other channel ruined it.17:13
OerHeksoke i have wrecked many servers and desktops from 2009 to now ..17:14
OerHeksbut this is an endless loop, i am afraid17:14
lotuspsychjegood evening to all17:19
daftykins\o heya17:19
lotuspsychjehy daftykins17:19
TJ-Evening, is it pie n chips time already?!17:19
daftykinsTJ-: i didn't get my invite ;)17:20
lotuspsychjeTJ-: hey mate, we just had warm soup n bread17:20
TJ-:D nor me!17:20
TJ-need something more than soup to keep me going today :P17:20
lotuspsychjethe boss of the dos, naturally :p17:21
lotuspsychjethey pull the lace, and you have to run along :p17:21
TJ-Not them today; jsut been extremely frustrated/disappointed with the Ubuntu Online Summit organisation, so need some comfort-food :)17:25
lotuspsychjeTJ-: howso frustrated?17:26
daftykinsit needs flash!17:26
* daftykins gasps all over again17:26
TJ-lotuspsychje: I shan't repeat myself; but was intending taking part in UOS and been disillusioned by how poorly it is organised and the technical services being essentially proprietary17:28
lotuspsychjeorganisation fault?17:29
TJ-badly designed; badly executed17:30
daftykinswell well - http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-DisplayPort-Multi-Stream-Transport/dp/B00XXPYGPO/17:30
daftykinsdisplayport multistream hubs!17:30
TJ-hahaha quote of the day: "every thing is ok, but the printer does not print"17:30
lotuspsychjeTJ-: check this out: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Ubuntu-16.04-LTS-UOS17:32
TJ-what am I looking at?17:33
lotuspsychjeonline summit?17:33
lotuspsychjerelevant article bout it17:34
TJ-Oh, I was (trying) to take part but various things were broke: http://summit.ubuntu.com/17:34
daftykinsone would think that's the sole job of a printer :)17:35
TJ-My laser is just there to keep my toes warm on a cold day :)17:36
TJ-crikey. Ubuntu no longer has a maintainer for the Network Manager packages, apparently for a while now17:58
daftykinsTJ-: ooh the German lad with the funky optimus laptop setup is PMing me18:35
lotuspsychjefunky lol18:36
daftykinsi'm suggesting he check that /var/log/prime-supported.log18:36
daftykinsnope file doesn't exist18:42
lotuspsychjemaybe after nvidia-prime is installed?18:43
daftykinsblank screen when that's on18:44
lotuspsychjein combination with wich driver?18:44
daftykinsGTX 980M in an MSI laptop18:45
TJ-got to "sudo /usr/bin/prime-supported" first18:45
lotuspsychjewe had some users with issues on 970 also on 15.05/15.1018:46
daftykinshow should i get him to boot though, he can only get a workable desktop or TTYs with nomodeset right now18:46
lotuspsychjeEriC^^: hellowwww18:47
daftykinsah he failed to mount18:47
EriC^^hi lotuspsychje18:47
daftykinsTJ-: /var/log/prime-supported.log said "No offloading required. Abort"18:47
daftykinshere's his live session dmesg which required nomodeset to boot - http://paste.ubuntu.com/13093862/18:48
daftykinsthis is one expensive machine, i7-6700HQ :)18:48
daftykinshappy to suggest he move it to the channel so you're not having to go via me :)18:50
TJ-vgaarb: setting as boot device: PCI:0000:00:02.0  <<< likely the Intel device18:51
daftykinsso if no offload is needed, is the intel ok to be the boot device?18:52
TJ-[    4.681571] efifb: mode is 1920x1080x32, linelength=7680, pages=118:52
TJ-[    4.688636] fb0: EFI VGA frame buffer device18:52
daftykinsooh so it could've brought up an image but somehow not be showing it, wrong viewport perhaps?18:53
daftykinsactually that's the live session so not even hugely relevant atm18:53
daftykinsi've made him try another normal boot, then going back into the live session to read logs from disk again18:53
TJ-this'll be the nvidia: [    0.357269] pci 0000:01:00.0: [10de:13d8] type 00 class 0x03020018:54
TJ-and the intel: [    0.354866] pci 0000:00:02.0: [8086:191b] type 00 class 0x03000018:54
lotuspsychjedear lord what have they done agai now18:55
TJ-so on an installed boot, without nvidia, i915 and nouveau would likely the expected drivers18:56
daftykinsTJ-: here's what he sees attempting a boot without 'nomodeset' with the nvidia driver 352 or 346 installed and nvidia-prime : http://imgur.com/VbR7dfK18:56
TJ-  looks like its in text console mode there; is that a Recovery boot?18:58
daftykinshmm i wonder if he's picking the wrong one to edit18:59
TJ-Has the user tried Ctrl+Alt+F1-F7 in case the active VT is elsewhere?18:59
daftykinsyeah apparently any press of any Fx combo results in the screen blanking, then it never changes again18:59
TJ-the font rendering in that image looks like a text-mode VGA font; not graphics mode18:59
TJ-Is there no sign of the Plymouth splash then?19:00
TJ-If the system is booting in EFI mode AND the uefi-vga framebuffer driver is loading, it is possible that somehow that causes a conflict with intel/nvidia19:01
ioriaEric^^ are you around ?19:01
TJ-we'd need to see the dmesg/kern.log for that19:01
EriC^^ioria: hey yeah19:04
EriC^^what's up?19:04
lotuspsychjeparttioning hell :p19:04
ioriathere is  a guy with dual boot  issues (?)19:05
ioriaa bit confused19:05
iorianow is  partitioning an external usb19:05
daftykinsyeah here's this phantom nomodeset - http://paste.ubuntu.com/13094061/ from /mnt/var/log/kern.log19:10
daftykinsso the log is grabbed from the install, mounted in the live session - yet he swears he presses 'e' to edit and confirms no 'modeset' is present on the boot entry19:11
daftykinsi'm stumped :D19:11
TJ-daftykins: that log is Oct 30th19:11
daftykinsoh yeah 29th even19:11
TJ-last entries 30th, after a boot19:12
daftykinsoh ja19:12
TJ-daftykins: "ls -latr /mnt/var/log/" and see what was most recently updated19:12
daftykinsroger that19:13
daftykinsmust not be getting far enough to write o019:13
TJ-daftykins: ask if any external devices are connected (that it might be booting from) - USB hard drives, flash storage, etc.19:13
lotuspsychjepcieport 0000:00:1c.0: AER: Corrected error received: id=00e019:13
lotuspsychjealot of those daftykins19:14
daftykinshe has mentioned there's a BIOS update available19:14
TJ-Yes, the firmware looks BADLY broken19:14
daftykinshttp://paste.ubuntu.com/13094096 logs ls19:14
TJ-there are loads of methig parse/execution errors19:14
daftykinsso yeah nothing has even emerged into November yet19:15
daftykinsso any test boots aren't making it very far?19:15
daftykinsok, i think i'm going to suggest the BIOS update is put on19:15
lotuspsychje0.933492] aer 0000:00:1c.4:pcie02: service driver aer loaded19:15
lotuspsychjeOct 30 17:27:41 tobias-PC kernel: [    0.933507] pcieport 0000:00:01.0: Signaling PME through PCIe PME interrupt19:15
TJ-looks like it is likely hanging in the initrd.img, hence no logs since 31st19:15
daftykinsi was suggesting the intel wifi module error couldn't surely be affecting things19:16
TJ-Id' also look at what was last installed according to /mnt/var/log/dpkg.log on the 30th; I'd bet whatever applied there is at the root of the issues19:17
TJ-it could be the initrd.img is corrupt and needs recreating. chroot for that19:17
TJ-is there a separate /boot/19:17
daftykinsnah, just / and /home19:18
TJ-check the initrd.img s in /boot/ then19:18
daftykinshttp://imgur.com/IEvviHi ;)19:30
daftykinshttp://imgur.com/XqHea9A - 'Broke bios is suspected.'19:40
daftykinsit's not its' fault it didn't have the opportunities we all did ;)19:40
TJ-looks like those Chinese devs got their hands on it, too :p19:41
lotuspsychjexenial packages database ubottu updated@ #ubuntu+119:41
lotuspsychjejust letting you guys know19:41
daftykinsdo we reckon he's up a creek without a paddle then - assuming the initrd is ok?19:43
TJ-summit is getting farcical; several people nattering on without testing the microphones, people cannot hear anything. *sigh* where did professionalism go?19:43
OerHekstrolls should reinstall. period.19:43
TJ-daftykins: it looks that way; very broken for sure, although I doubt the ACPI EC error is causing the screen issue directly.19:44
daftykinsTJ-: okie dokie, thanks for your input :) gonna try the chroot to double check19:44
daftykinswhat would i be better off instructing, an install --reinstall of the kernel package?19:44
TJ-just an "update-initramfs -u -k <VERSION>"19:46
daftykinswhere ver has to be a full uname -r string, or?19:47
daftykinsit's ok, spotted the man page :D19:48
TJ-is there another PC available that could ssh in? might be worth installing openssh-server in the chroot whilst its there, and when the PC appears to hang find out its IP address from the router and try an SSH session19:50
daftykinssounds like a plan19:51
lotuspsychjewhat a nice crew we got here :p20:03
daftykinsoops http://imgur.com/4ZLOqM4 there's the result after initramfs rebuild20:03
daftykinsso looks like it's just a no go for Linux on that one20:03
OerHeksmaybe there is a bios update?20:04
daftykinsapplied just earlier, yeah20:04
lotuspsychjehi wileee20:07
TJ-daftykins: any network response?20:08
lotuspsychjehi philipballew20:09
daftykinsTJ-: ah i'd not gone that far yet20:09
TJ-lotuspsychje: I am off to dinner; let minas114 know if they return. hopefully there'll be good news20:19
lotuspsychjeTJ-: ok20:21
lotuspsychjelets see if it can solve the acpi :p20:22
TJ-good job I didn't go!20:23
lotuspsychjeno dinner yet for you!20:24
TJ-2nd time lucky!20:24
* daftykins distracts TJ- further20:24
daftykinsapparently on rebooting normally without nomodeset to test SSH connection, plymouth showed up O_O20:24
TJ-ha! so nomodeset was there?20:25
daftykinsnah he says he didn't add it this boot20:25
daftykinsas it was the SSH test, although it doesn't connect20:25
TJ-so been adding it manually? So with splash up, does 'Esc' send it away and display the console?20:25
TJ-it might be worth trying to boot to the busybox shell in initrd.img with "break=init" on the kernel command-line. If it gets that far, then something in the root file-system/systemd-init process may be at fault20:26
daftykinsi almost said just try 14.04.3 ;)20:27
daftykinsperhaps when you're feeling bored after dinner i can suggest he highlight you sir :D20:27
TJ-initrd.img's /init shell script has many places where it can be stopped, by putting the appropriate 'name' after "break=" there are things like 'mount' 'pre-mount' etc20:28
daftykinson a reboot he says the screen is just purple this time, escape does nothing20:28
TJ-the function maybe_break() checks for the setting. You can list the current options with "grep maybe_break /usr/share/initramfs-tools/init"20:28
TJ-sounds like locked up20:29
daftykinsyeah, pretty frozen20:30
TJ-You know, it amazes me how people can fail on quote marks!20:32
lotuspsychje"what do you mean" :p20:33
daftykins'"surely not'"..;;;20:33
* TJ- throws Spag Bol20:34
* daftykins dives and catches in mouth20:34
TJ-right, I'm off to eat before the Huskies get there first20:35
lotuspsychjebon apetit TJ-20:35
daftykinsi should do that food thing too20:37
* lotuspsychje hides20:37
TJ-Grrr, no food, hungry tummy!20:39
* lotuspsychje throws some chili chips to TJ- 20:40

lotuspsychjeJordan_U: good evening :p20:52
Jordan_Ulotuspsychje: And to you :)20:52
lotuspsychjewe discussing relevant issues here lately with each other, to help users more efficiently20:53
lotuspsychjeOerHeks: http://news.softpedia.com/news/fedora-23-workstation-server-and-cloud-is-out-495698.shtml20:54
TJ-Anyone else think we need a 'tuneup' package, that contains scripts that analyse/apply common fixes for widespread issues?20:55
lotuspsychjeTJ-: what does that mean in eglish20:57
TJ-tune-up is like automobile engine tuning20:57
TJ-adjust its config to make it perform optimally20:57
lotuspsychje!info tune-up20:58
ubot5Package tune-up does not exist in vivid20:58
TJ-I was thinking on the amount of time we and users waste repeating the same steps, which a script could do in less than a second20:58
Picifor what though?20:58
TJ-acpi osi is becoming common; gpu, especially Optimus; creating chroot; cryptswap breakage20:59
lotuspsychjeyeah acpi and optimus are burning hot on 15.04 and 15.1021:00
lotuspsychjetons of users weekly on same issues21:00
TJ-scanning all logs files for known clues and pointing to known fixes/workarounds21:00
Picithat sounds like fodder for a good wiki page, not exactly a script21:01
TJ-I often spend more than 2 hours leading a user through what the script could do in 1 second21:01
lotuspsychjewikihow ubuntu :p21:01
TJ-Wiki is no good; the stuff I'm talking about needs informed decision making21:02
TJ-wiki quickly bit-rots too21:02
lotuspsychjeTJ-: looks like paying version: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/tuneup/21:03
TJ-I was working on apport (the crash/bug reporter) recently and thought we really need something that catches issues before they become crashes, or more widely, spots issues the user may not be aware of but ought to be fixed21:03
TJ-Ha! "Disable IPv6" ... err no thanks!21:04
lotuspsychjeTJ-: looks like a good idea, but howto implement it21:04
TJ-That must be REALLY old. it talks about JDK 721:05
TJ-lotuspsychje: The amount of intelligence we gather, and solutions, that's what I'm thinking about capturing and encoding in code21:05
TJ-anyhow, really really dinner time now21:05
lotuspsychjeTJ-: you cant leave from us21:06
daftykinsi've been and bought mine ;)21:06
Bashing-omAdmission: I generally partake at the keyboard. If I depart, just takes sooo long to get caught back up !21:09
lotuspsychjeTJ-: something like this? https://github.com/dennyb87/factotum21:11

lotuspsychjenite nite guys, cya all tomorrow21:24
daftykinsodd these ones that muscle in and don't have a clue o022:02
Bashing-omYeah. ^ Then we have to exert our mental resources watching them that they do not "miss-direct" . Oh Well .. some peoples' children .22:10
TJ-Nice one Zyxel! Check WANs IPv4/IPv6 "Use as default gateway" and it ... doesn't. Uncheck it... it does!22:12
Bashing-omTJ-: I had taken note that you had some networking issue . Great you are on the path to resolution . even though it is not intuitive .22:15
TJ-LOL yeah you could say that. Been perfect for years, router seemed to reset its config overnight, and now it it simply changed network settings at 21:43 without a reboot or any indication; couldn't figure out why IRC had gone so quiet :D22:16
daftykinsTJ-: oh you must've visited the 'backwards day' web admin22:17
TJ-LOL ... I reckon I should have stayed in bed today!22:17
TJ-started off badly, just kept on getting worse :)22:18
daftykinsoh i meant opposite, no wonder that sounded wrong22:19
daftykinsi'm forgetting english! D:22:19
TJ-did headphone sound person sort themselves out22:20

daftykinsthat MSI guy is going to reinstall 14.04.3 tomorrow, but i don't know how well the 3.19 kernel will be on skylake22:22
Bashing-omTJ-: Have you had your appple pie today ? A slice-a-day keeps the blues away . Some avow does better than chocolate chip cookies .. NOT proven !22:23
TJ-For breakfast :)22:24
daftykinsi'd like to conduct some testing on the above? to spare you all the bother...22:25
Bashing-omTJ-: Beats me then, what could possinly go wrong with the day at such a good start . // ^^ daftykins appreciation for chocolate chip cookies, maybe makes for a prime tester ?22:28
TJ-I think we should launch the ACPI-OS distro!22:29
daftykinsi think i'll grab another mince pie and my book22:30
daftykinsTJ-: sounds good :>22:30
daftykinsi was going to suggest that guy try the usual acpi_backlight=vendor thing but i sense that might be useless this time?22:30
TJ-possibly that wouls work to correct things at boot-time22:31
TJ-I've seen a few of those systems that correctly re-init ACPI on resume, but not on a cold power boot22:31
Bashing-omACPI, I just kick back and watch . It hurts slamming fingers in some one else's door .22:32
