oacyhello everyone, the dd command to create an image of a drive partition (sdb1) on another drive would be the same as when creating the drive (sdb) image, I guess; 'sudo dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=path/to/image/file bs=...' ?02:42

srulihi, i want to change the boot order in grub, how can isee the current order while logged in to system?03:15
wileeesruli, you might run past us what your doing, grub has built in tools.03:17
sruliwileee:  1. change boot order, 2. not to display grub, just boot into first option and to see grub menu user has to hold down shift or some other key03:18
wileeesruli, what all is on the computer and in grub?03:18
sruliwileee:  windows, ubuntu and debain, i want to boot windows03:19
sruliwileee: and when i wat linux i will hold down shift key on boot03:19
wileeesruli, Ah, you can set grub to default to windows. The hidden grub is the hard part with multi OS is all, not really sure you can.03:20
wileeesruli, there is a timeout that grub sits at, messing with smaller times is the general method, you want to get to grub for recovery at the least.03:21
sector_0hey guys03:21
sector_0I have a problem with my cd command03:21
isReKT2000In what way?03:21
sector_0whenever i use cd I can't "select" files from the new current directory03:21
sector_0for example let's say I have a file "file.txt" in the home directory...03:22
sector_0if I do "cd /home"03:22
sector_0I can't for example do "vi file.txt"03:22
isReKT2000then you can't do nano or emacs etc etc03:23
wileeesruli, What ever OS is at the top of grub has the grub control as of now, the ubuntu or debian assuming nothing has been removed in either with grub.03:23
isReKT2000is nano working?03:23
sector_0ok maybe I used a bad example03:24
isReKT2000maybe; maybe not03:25
zykotick9sector_0: ahhh cd /home wouldn't be your user's home directory.  try "cd" by itself to get to home.03:25
isReKT2000good idea zykotick903:25
wileeesruli, I suspect your not fully understanding, could be my explanation, ask anything you need to.03:25
sector_0zykotick9, I know I was just using a example03:25
sector_0proper example that I just tried...03:25
sector_0I did "cd ~/Desktop"...03:26
isReKT2000cd by itself?03:26
sector_0now there's a folder there named "stuff"03:26
sector_0normally if I start typing "/stu" and I hit tab it would auto complete..this doesn't happen03:27
SchrodingersScatsector_0: having a leading / means starting from root03:27
zykotick9sector_0: don't start with /03:27
sruliwileee: i dont want a timeout, i know its not easy to do on mulit os boot, but i still dont want grub viewable on boot, when i need it i will hold down the shift key03:27
SchrodingersScatsector_0: it would just be stuff, or ./stuff or ~/Desktop/stuff03:27
sector_0my bad I guess03:28

sector_0SchrodingersScat, heheh03:30
sruliwileee: there are a few third party grub customisers, as u say i keep away03:31
wileeeboot/grub/customizer is a bad choice is all03:31

sruliwileee: i managed to get hidden grub on dual boot04:40
wileeesruli, cool, how?04:40
srulicombination of things, 1. in /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober the template has something like " if timeout set = 0 then set 10" so what ever u don in etc/default/grub it will get overwritten on update-grub, so i changed to 'set 0' 2. I added 2 entries on /etc/defualt/grub/ GRUB_FORCE_HIDDEN_MENU=true and GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden, i dont know if those 2 entried had any effect as i only got it working after fixing the os-prober template04:44
wileeesruli, Did you update grub after the additional commands?04:48
TJ-sruli: You almost got it but made the wrong change. That "timeout=10" is only written into grub.cfg *if* quick_boot =1 - 12 lines above your change is quick_boot="1". Change that to quick_boot="0" and the timeout won't be changed, nor will the timeout_style04:49

SubCoolive done apt-get, ive done the headless installation. im about to do a remote ver upgrade of my OS, WHich i doubt will work. but- im trying.04:53
sruliwileee: yes i updates grub after changes04:53
sruliTJ-: i will try that now, u are tlkaing about os-prober file, right?04:53
sruliTJ-: what about GRUB_FORCE_HIDDEN_MENU=true and GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden are they required?04:55
TJ-sruli: yes, that file. if you look at that stanza, the settings are only written into grub.cfg (by the cat <<EOF) in adjust_timeout() when "if [ "$quick_boot" = 1 ] && [ "x${found_other_os}" != "x" ];" - both conditions need to be TRUE. so force quick_boot = 0 and the condition will never be true05:00
sruliTJ-: what about GRUB_FORCE_HIDDEN_MENU=true and GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden are they required?05:00
TJ-sruli: I'm not entirely sure, there are so many permutations it gets confusing without testing them :D05:01
wileeehallelujah says the chorus05:01
TJ-sruli: GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden would normally be set that way05:01
srulialso i guess setting i made is good to hide the grub, but i cant get it by pressing any key ! have to boot live cd not and change05:01
TJ-sruli: right, always best to set the timeout=1 so Shift is still detected05:02
sruliTJ-: but i do not want the menu visable, i set GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=305:03
me-1hi.. I dont see grub menu at start05:03
wileeeme-1, See anything at all, shift may show something esc if W8-1005:05
sruliTJ-: i have 2 entries for quick_boot =1, i should set both to 0?05:06
me-1wileee,  no blank black screen and then ubuntu logo and it boots directly into ubuntu . I dont have other OS05:07
TJ-sruli: it depends on what code generation they control05:07
wileeeme-1, try running sudo update-grub to bring it up to date. Have you changed grub or removed another OS?05:08
me-1wileee,  I have updated it and it doing the same from day 105:09
srulithe fist one is in the begining of the file, prefix="/usr" exec_prefix="/usr" datarootdir="/usr/share" quick_boot="005:09
TJ-sruli: looking at the code in 00_header and 10_linux, quick_boot won't affect 'timeout' there05:09
wileeeme-1, Err, my error, when you have just ubuntu you need to hit the shift key to see grub, or esc if uefi.05:09
wileeegrub is bypassed with single installs, you have to key it up05:10

srulitired shift, doesnt show05:12
srulialso tried esc05:12
TJ-sruli: when do you press the key?05:12
TJ-sruli: because the transition from firmware POST to GRUB is so fast, I generally hold shift down whilst POST is still reporting so its down when GRUB gets control05:13
srulii hold it down fro the start05:14

hateball!sudo | Lucax06:43
ubottuLucax: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !pkexec (for older releases: !gksu and !kdesudo). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo06:43
nils17trijntje: yes.. can you help me combine the cut command with find / exec / mv ?06:43
Quakertrijntje, does it have many programs running ?06:43
hateballnils17: you can use the rename command as well, it accepts regexp06:44
nils17I know that at the moment:   find / -type d -exec mv {}06:44
nils17and THEN??06:44
trijntjeQuaker: I dont think so, its a pretty standard install as far as I know, I haven't added a lot of services or anything like that06:45
trijntjenils17: you should probably take some time to read about bash, this channel isn't really the place for these kind of basic questions06:45
hateballnils17: Also there is #bash which may be helpful06:46
Lucaxto run as sudo, does it simply mean to type the sudo command in terminal and pop! I have authority to do whatever I like, like mounting my ext-drive?06:47
Lucaxdoes $ mean that I am running as Sudo?06:52
Lucaxand does Superuser and Sudo mean the same?06:52

Quakerapt-get install brain07:51
cynixx3Then maybe change back and disable php upgrades?07:51
mac1Hi Quaker07:52
wileeecynixx3, bad idea really, that 5.3 can be gotten by deb, either install could throw in dependencies and libraries that conflict. This is a backwards way to go is all, fix the script to run.07:52
wileeecynixx3, I though OerHeks posted a php lin earlier that showed the dispersal per release and 5.3 was 12.0 still supported, maybe conform this and do a vm or dualboot.07:55

wileeeNexusStar, Isn't docker a 3rd party?08:36
Lucaxformat it as fat or ntfs, the word format disturbs me a little, does it mean wiping out the files in the external drive or is this type of formating more of a reconfiguration or a formatchanging08:36

est31wush, I'd prefer ddrescue over dd with noerror param09:53
est31if your disk has errors, ddrescue is smarter09:53
est31and you can do logfiles09:53
est31its a bit slower though09:53
est31(logfiles make you save progress)09:53
wushest31, oh, I've used dd before, familiar is sort of easier as I am not too advanced in this09:54
wushjust, I wanted to know if I could use it for a partition (sdb3) like above, as the same command when I used it for a whole drive (sdb) ?09:55
est31welcome to unix :)09:55
wushest31, thank you!09:55
wushest31, there is also one more peculiarity. the partition in question, sdb3, is an extended partition. I wanted to image it in order for the image to contain all the partitions under it. would the image contain these?09:59
wileeewush, you don't image an extension but the partitons within09:59
wushwileee, so if I use sdb3 in the command, the partitions in there would be within the resulting image?10:01

zetherooif I tell grub to install to just /dev/sda and click "Forward" the next screen says "Continue without installing GRUB?"10:17
zetherooand if I leave that option unticked and click again on "Forward" I am just taken back to the previous screen where I am asking where to install grub10:17
wileeezetheroo, are you sure your choosing correctly?10:17
guest-PmYTg4how does it work10:18
zetheroowileee: ^10:18
wileeehold on10:19
wileeezetheroo, what brought up a gui, I usually see this in a terminal, a little confusing here for me.10:20
zetherooSoftware Updater10:20
wileeezetheroo, Ah, so if you hit forward show me the screens you go through if you can if it errors.10:20
wushest31, thank you for your help!10:22
zetherooif I click "Forward" I go here: http://tinypic.com/r/9pz5z6/910:22
zetheroowileee: and if I click "Forward" again I end up back at the previous screen10:22
zetheroowileee: that grub-install error only shows up when I select sda1 to install gub to10:24
wileeezetheroo, not sure I follow that.10:24
wileeelast statement10:24
EriC^^zetheroo: you're not supposed to install grub to a partition, usually it goes on the disk10:24
zetheroo wileee:  http://tinypic.com/r/2w3wbbn/910:25

zetheroowileee: not that I can recall10:28
zetherooEriC^^: yep - doesn't work there either ...10:29
zetheroodo I have to select both /dev/sda and /dev/sdb ?10:30
zetheroosdb is just a data disk without any OS installed10:30
zetheroowell, kinda stuck here ... not sure what to do ...10:32
wileeezetheroo, open a terminal and run sudo grub-install dev/sda   and see if it finishes10:33
zetherooshould I leave the Debconf windows open ?10:34
zetheroo"Installation finished. No error reported."10:35
zetheroook, so it worked in the terminal so I just selected the option in Debconf to not install grub and finished the update10:36
wileeezetheroo, strange than that it errors in that deb, same basic action, you can just finish it I think and confirm after with that command and a sudo update-grub just to have a look.10:36
wileeeah cool, even stranger, heh10:36
zetheroo^ that was done after the update closed10:37
zetherooI noticed the package name of the grub update was beta2 - is that normal that beta packages are used on LTS releases?10:38
wileeezetheroo, I wonder if your changing of the time out caused this, grub should not be showing anyway.10:39
wileeenormal yeah10:39
wileeezetheroo, can you bring up grub if needed?10:40
zetheroo"I wonder if your changing of the time out caused this, grub should not be showing anyway." - not following you ..10:40
zetherooon boot?10:40
zetheroohaven't tried ...10:40
wileeezetheroo, yes10:40
zetheroowhats the key to press? ... F8?10:40
wileeethat timeout affects that, it is the wait time from grub to boot generall 10 seconds10:41
wileeezetheroo, shift10:41
zetherooI guess I can try it next time I boot up10:41
zetherooI didn't change any timeout settings though10:41
wileeezetheroo, hard to say, in these matters, I could swear I never swear, but I'm wrong. ;)10:42

=== nairolf is now known as Nairwolf
wileeezetheroo, cool thing about grub especially in this basic use is that it can be purged and reloaded if needed, pretty flexible in fixing if goals are norm10:44
NairwolfHi, I've received an update of grub, and the menu seem doesn't work well10:44
zetherooright ...10:44
zetherooNairwolf: ha ... you don't say :)10:45
Nairwolfit ask me where I want to install it, I choose my disk /dev/sda and he says me that nothing was choosen...10:45
Nairwolfzetheroo you have also an issue ?10:45
zetherooNairwolf: just finished sorting it out ;)10:45
Nairwolfokay, what have you done ?10:45
zetherooI opened a terminal and did "sudo grub-install /dev/sda"10:46
zetherooall was ok so I told the update gui to not install grub10:46
wileeeNairwolf, Hold on don;t just run commands10:46
zetheroothen did both "sudo grub-install /dev/sda" and "sudo update-grub" again in terminal10:46
Nairwolfokay, thanks10:47
wileeezetheroo, be very careful, don't just spit out your fix, people will run stuff.10:47
zetherooNairwolf: but you should be sure that you want to intall grub to /dev/sda and not some other device10:47
Nairwolfbut it's strange that the gui menu doesn't want to recognize where I want to install it10:47
Nairwolfyes, i'm sure it's at /dev/sda10:47
wileeewe have no idea the know sda for sdz10:47

ggherdovHello. I have an ubuntu VM on which I just "apt-get purge"-ed many kernels I don't use anymore (they kept piling up after each update). Now, err.. the machine doesn't boot anymore :)13:16
ggherdovI don't think I removed the current kernel, but something went wrong anyways. Whatever. I am now accessing the filesystem via a bootable ubuntu image.13:16
ggherdovQuestion: where would you go looking for anomalies? My first thought is to check what kernel GRUB is trying to load, but I don't find the /boot/grub/grub.cfg . Could this be the problem?13:16
ruslanguys, I have a strange problem I'm strugling with on ubuntu 15.04 on an intel NUC: When I move the mouse against the left edge of the screen, the screen crashes (becomes solid color - but is still on). At that point I cant do anything (not even switch to another tty).13:16
daftykinssruli: boot with 'text' appended to the kernel boot params if it's 14.04.13:17
goalehello everyone, I tried to create the image of an extended partition (using its device name in 'if='). my aim was to image not the whole drive, but only the partitions under extended partition. but the resulting image was only 1kB. what do I need to do only to image said part of the drive?13:17
daftykinssruli: i'm assuming you're after a console login only? no X starting?13:17
daftykinsgoale: what's the purpose of this? use clonezilla, it's a bootable ISO in itself as well as installable in live sessions.13:18
lotuspsychjeruslan: did you try this on LTS also?13:18
srulidaftykins: on that one i am after a /bin/sh13:18
lotuspsychje!recovery | ggherdov tryed this?13:18

ggherdovlotuspsychje: thanks, will check13:18
daftykinssruli: yeah it gives a TTY login, so just login... or use recovery boot instead. you need to say what you're trying to achieve, right now it makes 0 sense.13:19
goaledaftykins. it doesnt matter what I use. I need the part of disk to be copied13:19
ruslanlotuspsychje, no I didn't (this is a work computer). I've read about different graphics problems with NUC+Ubuntu but didnt find anything similar13:19
goaleI dont need iso13:20
goaleI mean only the extended partition to be copied, with partitions under it13:20
daftykinsgoale: i'm just saying clonezilla is excellent image taking software - so yeah, it actually is helpful - and i'm just saying multiple ways to run it, bootable or not.13:20
daftykinsgoale: you have to do the logical drives one by one.13:20
lotuspsychjeruslan: i would try LTS on it, at least to be sure having stable13:20
srulidaftykins: lets call it the fastest recovery boot ;-) . i did not get ur previous message, where do i put what text?13:20
daftykinssruli: no lets call it what it is - what are you trying to achieve?13:21

linuxuz3rit says something is tainted14:31
linuxuz3rnot tainted but doesnt have the right signature14:31
linuxuz3rwhen i load it14:31
daftykinscan you try and reduce the amount of enter key presses you use? it makes your messages very spammy and harder to read.14:31
linuxuz3ri need to sign the kernel module14:31
linuxuz3rits side effect of using bash14:31
daftykinsno it's the youth of today's impatience :)14:32
daftykinsmaybe if you pastebin'd that output someone could take a glance14:32
akiklinuxuz3r: you don't have to worry about the tainted message. it is just saying the the module has some other kind of license than gpl14:34
linuxuz3rbut my apps are crashing14:34

SkyriderGreetings everyone14:35
SkyriderI wish to reinstall my VPS.. Should I install Ubuntu 14.04 or 15.04. (server)14:36
akiklinuxuz3r: and when you compiled it, there were no errors?14:36
linuxuz3ri tried several programs14:36
PiciSkyrider: Since 14.04 is an LTS, I highly suggest using that...14:36
Skyrider15.04 isnt lts yet?14:36
Myrttino, it's not14:37
SkyriderThanks :)14:37
PiciSkyrider: LTS releases are every 2 years, so 12.04, 14.04 and 16.04 (being released in April)14:37
cfhowlettSkyrider, 15.04 will NEVER be LTS14:37
Skyriderbecause of never versions over 15.xx?14:38
cfhowlett12.04 > 14.04 > 16.04 ... see the pattern14:38
Skyriderah, double, thanks :)14:39
PiciSkyrider: if you haven't realized it already, the ubuntu version numbers are the YEAR.MONTH of release.14:39
akiklinuxuz3r: https://github.com/Canonical-kernel/Ubuntu-kernel/blob/master/Documentation/module-signing.txt maybe that will help you. i haven't touched that ever14:40

nivahey guys I am getting kernel panic's with the BCM43228 . Any ideas ?14:45
rud0lf_I have added "/media/rud0lf/LinuxData/android-studio/bin" in bashrc. When I see $PATH, it shows the path .14:47
rud0lf_But it also says: "/media/rud0lf/LinuxData/android-studio/bin:/media/rud0lf/LinuxData/android-studio/bin: No such file or directory14:47
rud0lf_I dont understand.14:47
quakerme too14:48
rud0lf_Why is it happening? What have I missed? Btw I have also added theat partition in fstab in order to auto mount it.14:48
rud0lf_Can something wrong there affect this?14:49
ikoniarud0lf_: pastebin your bashrc14:50
linuxuz3rdid you do export PATH=$PATH:directory1:directory1?14:50
linuxuz3rdid you do export PATH=$PATH:directory1:directory1 ?14:50
rud0lf_This is my fstab: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13247763/ and this is my bashrc:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/13247772/14:52
rud0lf_I did not write export :|14:52
rud0lf_Someone told me to add the line " PATH=$PATH:directory1:directory1" only14:53
ikoniarud0lf_: why do you have the "user" option set ?14:54
rud0lf_ikonia, the description was saying that user option means any user can mount it. SoI thought this is what I need.14:55
rud0lf_Is it wrong? Should I use defaults?14:55
ikoniano no, nothing to cause an issue14:56
ikoniaso if you do "echo $PATH" now, what do you see ?14:56
ikoniayou have your android stuff listed 2 times14:57
ikoniabut other than that, looks good14:57
wa_r_ch_i__ld1hey, anyone know how to enter a backslash (\) in xdotool key event?14:59
rud0lf_Ah...I think I have also added it in .profile. But can it be the cause of the prob? Because I am still not able to execute a file in that directory.14:59

daftykinsso comment out that line and reload and it'd likely go away15:04
netwsdaftykins: but it is there for some reason to restrict read operations for group @administration15:04
EriC^^rud0lf_: ok how are you trying to run the file?15:05
daftykinsnetws: right but it sounds like it doesn't like that usage, run testparm to confirm15:05
EriC^^you need to just type studio.sh to run it15:05
rud0lf_EriC^^, yeah..I am doing that only.15:05
netwsdaftykins: I have to recconect I will back in a momment15:05

angelicahi i m new to linux i mast install this: wps-office- is correct if i type this: sudo apt-get install wps-office- in the softwer centeer or there is more to it?15:10
ikoniaangelica: no15:10
ikoniaangelica: rpm is not meant for ubuntu15:11
rud0lf_EriC^^,  head: cannot open ‘/path/to/studio.sh’ for reading: No such file or directory15:11
EriC^^rud0lf_: use the actual path15:11
rud0lf_EriC^^, Same error15:11
angelicaaw so what i should install ?ata15:12
ikoniaangelica: what do you want to install ?15:12
EriC^^rud0lf_: can you open the file somehow?15:12
rud0lf_EriC^^, I can open it with gedit.15:12
angelicai can enter in it i think is like  a unzip but duno how install stuff15:12
ikoniaangelica: what do you want to install ?15:13
EriC^^rud0lf_: i think you've mounted the filesystem with noexec, or you're missing a shebang15:13
angelicawps office like15:13
EriC^^rud0lf_: check the first line for #!/something/here15:13
rud0lf_EriC^^, #!/bin/sh15:13
EriC^^type mount | grep /LinuxData15:13
angelicai m from windows XD15:14
angelicainstalled xubuntu15:14
daftykinsangelica: who told you to use this suite?15:14
rud0lf_EriC^^, /dev/sda12 on /media/rud0lf/LinuxData type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,data=ordered,user)15:15
EriC^^rud0lf_: ok, it's mounted with noexec15:15
EriC^^meaning you can't execute files15:15
EriC^^rud0lf_: edit /etc/fstab if you want it removed15:15
daftykinsangelica: is there a reason you want to use it instead of Libre Office which comes with xubuntu?15:15
rud0lf_EriC^^, so there is something wrong with my fstab. Because I added  "UUID=015be9bb-8fb7-44a7-9f2c-f712d573582e/media/rud0lf/LinuxDataext4user00" there15:16
angelicaa compiuter guy because i ask for a low memory requirement for this pad because he lagged badly with windows xp15:16
rud0lf_The user option is wrong.15:16
EriC^^i think user lets anybody mount it, and noexec is implied with it15:16
daftykinsangelica: i don't think there'd be much to gain; but you needed to pick the i386 .deb file download to install15:16
EriC^^if you want anybody to mount it, but can execute anything then use user,exec to override15:16
daftykinsangelica: however, this is a very unwise method of installing software on xubuntu because it won't get updated15:17
cfhowlettangelica, wps is more demanding than libreoffice.  also, less developed and maintained.15:17
ikoniaangelica: if he's out of resources on XP - this isn't going to help15:17
angelicaaw so i mistake i piked the 68615:17
howlymowlyhi everyone..  short question: I set my "default" python environment in ubuntu 15.10 to python 3.5 with this command:  "sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python3 python3 /usr/bin/python3.5 10"  how do I change it back to python 3.4?15:17
zykotick9rud0lf_: i'd suggest you try "users" instead, just a test - might not work.15:17
daftykinsangelica: you also chose an rpm which is for Redhat/CentOS15:17
daftykinsangelica: do you know how much RAM you have?15:17
ikoniachange 3.5 to 3.415:17
cfhowlettangelica, exactly ^^^ .  there is a .deb available from the wps site15:17
howlymowlyikonia: done that, did not work ;)15:18
angelicai can check15:18
ikoniadefine did not work15:18
rud0lf_zykotick9, ok. EriC^^ there is also an option defaults which implies:  rw,suid,dev,exec,auto,nouser,async.15:18
howlymowlyikonia: when I type in "python3" it still starts the python3.5 console instead of the python3.4315:18
rud0lf_or user,exec will do?15:19
ikoniahowlymowly: check if the symlink has been updated15:19
angelicamm maibe not is not in the system as i used to be lol15:19
EriC^^rud0lf_: what do you want it to do?15:20
howlymowlyikonia:  /usr/bin/python3 it points to /etc/alternatives/python3  ??15:20

rud0lf_EriC^^, the drive is always attached to my PC. I just want the partition to auto mount and to be used normally.15:21
angelicaty alot15:21
howlymowlyikonia: and /etc/alternatives/python3 points back to python3.515:21
EriC^^rud0lf_: ok, use defaults then15:21
Turnip_Greenangelica click the icon in the top right of the desktop and select "About this computer".  It will tell you how much RAM you have.15:22
howlymowlyso...  ;)  ikonia any idea, what I did wrong?  I mean the command worked to change to python3.5 from python3.4 ...15:22
rud0lf_EriC^^, defaults implies nouser. Does that mean a user can not mount or unmount it?15:22
EriC^^rud0lf_: maybe defaults,nosuid15:22
EriC^^yeah, but it will be automounted when you boot anyways15:22
daftykinsangelica: if it was too bad for XP, no ubuntu will save your machine.15:22
rud0lf_EriC^^, All right... I will try :) Thanks a lot15:23
angelicawell before didnt worked at all now im  talking with u :)15:23
PC_Ubuntu_Guydaftykins  depending on the spec of the XP machine, perhaps Xubuntu might work better in regard to a lighter DE15:23
angelicatop right i have the clock15:24
angelicau mean left the blue mouse ?15:24
cfhowlettangelica, lubuntu is optimized for older computers.  or perhaps lubuntu.15:24
Turnip_GreenDirectly next to the clock15:24
Turnip_GreenIt looks like a small gear.15:24
EriC^^rud0lf_: no problem15:25
daftykinsPC_Ubuntu_Guy: not even close if XP ran bad :P15:25
angelicai will try it but wish to try understand this a bit before i move to try and install another not quite an expert15:26
PC_Ubuntu_Guy:-) only trying to add to your helpful suggestions, as I'm not fully following the conversation for this one15:26
angelicais hard for me to find the ram because my version is in italian too15:26
daftykinsangelica: perhaps #ubuntu-it has some people15:26
cfhowlett!lubuntu | angelica, try lubuntu first.15:27
ubottuangelica, try lubuntu first.: 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.15:27
angelicais ubunto softwere center ?15:27

angelicathere are other voice15:28
angelicaused free cache etc15:28
Infamousuff thats not alot15:28
cfhowlettangelica, ubuntu will not give you anything close to satisfactory results on that small amount of ram.  lubuntu or perhaps xubuntu.15:28

d0lph1n98what if there are two same version number in two different ppa?16:35
geniid0lph1n98: Yes. In such cases, usually apt will try to install the newest one, as determined by it's version number, so long as it adheres to Debian packaging guidelines16:36
Krapulatikonia: so is it impossible to remove the package to install it later?16:36
d0lph1n98so if there are two package with same name and version number, the apt will choose based on timestamp?16:37
geniid0lph1n98: If there are two identical versions in two different locations, the first match wins ( as decided alphabetically by it's placement in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ dir16:37

bellflowerTJ: But the 250 had been repaired a few times and only reads as about 240GB (more or less).18:31
ActionParsnipregedit: ok cool.18:31
ActionParsnipregedit: to install deb files:  sudo dpkg -i /path/to/filename.deb18:32
regeditdaftykins: why, cups wizard would install 32bit dependencies automatically?18:32
TJ-bellflower: I'm talking about what is currently /dev/sdb. That physical disk is *smaller* than the partition table/file-systems on it describe. Is /dev/sdb a cloned image?18:32
daftykinsregedit: what did you get...18:32
antarticit seems to have worked! :D18:32
bellflowerTJ: No. Not a clone. It's the original.18:32
regeditdaftykins: ActionParsnip seems to have linked to an official installations packages/steps for the exact model from manufacturer18:33
antarticdetails now state "Intel® HD Graphics 530 (Skylake GT2) " thank you so much!18:33
TJ-bellflower: then it has lost a large part of the sector making up partition 4.18:33
bellflowerTJ: But sdb1 is a copy of Windows that was once used in a laptop that had Absolute Computrace, which is bad for writing "hidden data" on HDs.18:33
regeditdaftykins: http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/linux/en/download_prn.html#HL-3170CDW18:33
daftykinsregedit: i see, so you are indeed skipping the testing of what's built in18:33
daftykinswell, have fun :)18:34
TJ-bellflower: "sudo hdparm -N /dev/sdb | tee /dev/stderr | pastebinit"18:34
regeditdaftykins: is it really that much better than dpkg installing the manufacturer packages and fixing them?18:34
TJ-bellflower: I suspected a Host Protected Area issue might be the cause; lets check that with the command above18:34
daftykinsregedit: yes, because every action you perform with a .deb will not get updated - installing .deb's is unwise18:35
daftykinsit should be considered a last resort.18:35
regeditdaftykins: whereas from cups it will?18:35
bellflowerTJ: The running kernel lacks CONFIG_IDE_TASK_IOCTL support for this device.18:36
bellflower READ_NATIVE_MAX_ADDRESS_EXT failed: Invalid argument /dev/sdb:18:36
bellflowerTJ: That's all that it shows.18:36
TJ-bellflower: what kernel is that ("uname -a") ?18:37
ubuntu972what is the support for 15.418:37
ubuntu972I mean till when?18:37
daftykinsubuntu972: don't run it on a VPS, go back to 14.04 and create a new one.18:37
lickalottno love daftykins.   ActionParsnip, nvidia-prime is already installed.18:37

bellflowerTJ: Linux tinkerbell 3.19.0-25-generic #26~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 24 21:16:20 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux18:38
daftykinslickalott: i told you that wouldn't work18:38
ubuntu972january 2016?18:38
daftykinsubuntu972: yip18:38
lickalotti was just answering him, I didn't use it for anything18:38
lickalottthat could've been on two different lines18:38
ubuntu972there is any long term support edition?18:38
Glorfindelok, this was happening while I was on 14.04 too, but on 15.10, if I close the laptop screen, it will sleep. which is fine. but when I open the screen it wakes, and shows an openbox password prompt18:39
daftykinslickalott: i'm confident it's down to TV settings, give it more of a try18:39
daftykinsubuntu972: see where i said install 14.04?18:39
Glorfindelwhich doesn't accept any of my passwords18:39
lickalottdaftykins, that's what I was referring to.  THere aren't any controls on this tv (Vizio POS) for scaling18:39
lickalott"no love"18:39
daftykinslickalott: it's not scaling, it's overscan18:39
regeditdaftykins: ok ok i retraced my steps and will be doing the testing phase. BR Script 3 or Foomatic/Postscript ?18:39
daftykinsregedit: just experiment, it doesn't work -> delete -> start again.18:40
TJ-bellflower: hmmm, something not right there. Give me a moment to check on a 14.04 system18:40
ubuntu972daftykins I've read it I think if I have to go back to same version so perhaps I can fixe it no?18:40
bellflowerlickalott: Vizio isn't too terribly bad (I've seen much worse), but they left out a lot of the manu features in the manuals. Most has to be randomly discovered by the users.18:40
daftykinsubuntu972: no, create a new VPS on 14.04 -> migrate your data -> delete the other18:40
regeditdaftykins: wait a minute, there's an option "Or provide a PPD file". Would that be referring to something i can download from the manufacturer?18:41
bellflowerlickalott: So your issue may have more to do with your TV settings, than anything to do with your system.18:41
lickalottonly selections I have are DNR, Black/White level extender, CTI, flesh tone, Adaptive Luma, and DCR.  None of which do anything special for my situation.18:41
lickalottthat's what I'm thinking.  I just wanted to shoot it off of the big brains before I gave up18:41
lickalottlooks like VGA it is18:42
frendaError opening default ALSA device: No such file or directory ---> http://paste.ubuntu.com/13249513/ ---> What does it mean? (I can listen to mp3 files)18:42
bellflowerlickalott: The HDMI is a much cleaner and better option. It took me a while to get mine working 100% but unfortunately cannot recall where I found it in the TV's menu settings.18:42
daftykinsregedit: i'm going to stop replying now, because you need to think for yourself here.18:43
lickalotti remember having a similar issue on my server at home and just said screw it and went with DVI18:43
daftykinslickalott: that doesn't sound like the full settings a display would offer18:43
lickalottIn that research I remember manipulating a file (resolution file) and playing with those values until it fit the screen.18:44
regeditmkay i'm gonna see if the vendor has a PPD file i can use...18:44
lickalottdaftykins, the HDMI on this is limited.  I have all kinds of options for VGA, to include overscan and scaling18:44
daftykinslickalott: and you're on which ubuntu version again?18:45
bellflowerlickalott: I believe there are some scaling controls, or may only be a few presets and "auto", they are just not easy to find and not where you might intuitively expect.18:45
lickalotti literally spent $50 on this yesterday from a buddy.  it's not top quality by any stretch.18:45
daftykinslickalott: i'd make it so the HDMI display is the only output and see if it behaves any differently.18:45
lickalott15.10 daftykins18:45
lickalotti tried that.  same same....18:45
daftykinsand then as crazy as it sounds, try another HDMI cable18:46
lickalotton my third one today.18:46
TJ-bellflower: I've looked at the Linux and hdparm source-code. The error report is misleading. No Intel/AMD based CPU kernels have support for that option. What is happening is in hdparm - it tries to read the device with a call to the standard 'SCSI Generic' syscall which fails, so hdparm 'falls back' to a 'legacy' method which tries to invoke the IDE_TASK_IOCTL call, which doesn't exist and therefore fails.18:46
daftykinsok, obviously it's a cheap and rubbish display causing quirks18:46
bellflowerlickalott. What model is the Vizio TV? I'll see what I can find if it is similar to mine. I get them because they are half the price of any PC monitor of similar size.18:46
daftykinsit might work from another system with HDMI *shrug*18:46
kamikazeattacksHello !!! Do you know a name of a distro which uses unofficial desktop environment, excluding popular environments like GNOME, KDE etc. ? :)18:47
lickalottbellflower, VX32L18:47
TJ-bellflower: so, it looks like a symptom of the failing disk. It doesn't look like there is much you can do to recover things. That disk would need expert handling. I'd recommend unplugging it to protect what data remains18:47
daftykinskamikazeattacks: you mean like ubuntu gnome and kubuntu? ...18:47
kamikazeattacksdaftykins, No. I mean unpopular desktop environment. :)18:48
bellflowerkamikazeattacks: Try "sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop" . It's what I use most and has a nice clean and lean look and feel. Very efficient.18:48
daftykinskamikazeattacks: ah sorry, misread18:48
daftykinskamikazeattacks: better question for ##linux as this is ubuntu only18:48
TJ-bellflower: let's check its health with "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdb | tee /dev/stderr | pastebinit"18:49
kamikazeattacksdaftykins, I mean distro "based on Ubuntu", which has their own desktop environment. :)18:49
bellflowerTJ: It booted and ran fine, so if no better suggestions, I could swap the HDs back to the 250, and start copying files off of it to another HD. Extra steps and time consuming, but workable.18:49
daftykinskamikazeattacks: yes, we don't really deal with other distros, not even variants18:50
daftykinskamikazeattacks: so unless you want to know of xubuntu, lubuntu or ubuntu MATE...18:50
TJ-bellflower: before you copy, check on how big the disk reports itself. If that is less than 488396800 sectors, it'll not get the data.18:50
=== erwin_ is now known as easyOnMe
kamikazeattacksdaftykins, Where is a complete list of all desktop environments ever for Linux ??? :)  Could somebody give me a link ? :)18:51
daftykinskamikazeattacks: sure, over in ##linux18:51
TJ-bellflower: it makes no sense that the drive would report different sizes based solely on whether it is the boot device or not, *unless* you have configured the booting OS to *disable* HPA at boot-time18:52
Tahr-userHi  - Firefox will display my pdf properly, but evince, while readable, chooses a font that is not the right one and the spacing is sometimes funky..... it there a cetain .ttf that I should install ?18:53
bellflowerTJ: I honestly have no idea why it boots and functions as-is, but unreadable any time it's connected as USB to a 64 bit OS.18:54
TJ-bellflower: "as USB" HAHA! I wonder if your USB<>disk adapter has a limit - many do18:54
bellflowerTJ: I suspect it may have some of it's own issues, but It does read, repair, and copy 1TB HDs without probs.18:55
daftykinsgah now we're told it's not internal :)18:55
TJ-bellflower: in other words, the USB<>disk chipset is presenting its own view of the disk sectors, not simply passing through the value from the disk itself18:55

poningruthe dvi is setup in portrait mode18:58
poningruand when I try to use the display configration utility18:58
TJ-bellflower: smartctl can use special device-specific pass-through commands for some USB bridges. If we identify what it is we may be able to figure it out18:58

TJ-bellflower: all those USB 'device not accepting address' errors don't look promising19:05
bellflowerTJ: I do have some work-around ideas that I can go with. Just the same it would explain why the drive is readable internally, but not via USB.19:07
TJ-bellflower: is the device connected via a USB3 or USB2 port? (and is the device natively USB3?)19:07
TJ-bellflower: yes, internally the disk isn't going through a bridge so it'll be fine19:07
bellflowerTJ: If that is the case, I can always swap HDs back, move stuff to a smaller USB thumb drive, then re-swap and copy them to the newer HD.19:07
TJ-bellflower: did the HD-PCTU2 originally have a 250GB drive in it?19:07
bellflowerTJ: No, it's just an adapter that was reflashed to work as generic.19:08
TJ-bellflower: I'm wondering if Buffalo firmware-limit those things in order to stop people buying the low-capacity cheaper version and simply replacing the hard disk with a cheaper large one19:08
regeditwhat does it mean when QApt doesnt want to install a .deb because "Error: Cannot satisfy dependencies", but dpkg -i does so no problem and a subsequent sudo apt-get -f install doesn't even seem necessary (nothing seems to get pacthed up - unless i'm mistaken?) ?19:08
TJ-bellflower: 'reflashed' ... the more you reveal the more I die a little :)19:08
bellflowerTJ: Ironically enough, the person who gave it to me bought it because they only needed a 500GB hard drive and it was cheaper than locally buying just the HD.19:09
regeditis there any way to see more specifics of what QApt is complaining about when it very generically says "Error: Cannot satisfy dependencies"19:09
bellflowerTJ: Wasn't my doing. IT was a freebie when I needed one.19:09
TJ-bellflower: OK, but the fact you've got obstacles in the way of the disk isn't helping when we start out believing its a direct connect disk with no 'weird' translation going on. Anyhow, so now you know the cause. Loose the bridge :)19:10
bellflowerTJ: Unfortunately, most laptops do not have space or connections for multiple HDs.19:11
bellflowerTJ: But this has seriously been a big help. Knowing where the issue resides reveals a lot more possible solutions.19:11

goddardhow can i increase the file limit that is set in ubuntu20:34
goddardit is currently 102420:34
bekkswhich "file limit"?20:35
OerHeksWhat application would need that?20:35
TJ-!ulimit | goddard20:37
TJ-hmmm... ubottu is on vacation?20:37
bazhangubottu, lag20:37
ubottuYou have lag, I don't have lag20:37
PiciTJ-: no, there no factoid for ulimit20:37
OerHeksjust not doing its job, like keeping a log.20:37
akikgoddard: look into /etc/security/limits.conf20:37
TJ-Pici: drat, I thought there was!20:38
goddardakik: i tried but it is write protected even when using sudo20:38
k1l_goddard: can you give more details what you do and what error you get exactly?20:38
akikgoddard: it should be a normal file20:39
OerHeksif i use 'sysctl fs.file-max' in 15.04, i get fs.file-max = 60020620:41
akiki think goddard means nofile open files per process20:42
goddardakik: its helpful when using inotify20:43
bekksgoddard: helpful for what?20:43
goddardfunctions of inotify20:43
=== Piper-Off is now known as Monthrect
k1l_goddard: so you want to increase the inotify limit?20:43
bekksgoddard: a full problem description could be handy.20:44

Guest37133Live cd21:14
Chaserjamesguessis: uuid-dev doesn't seem to install uuid binary just dev files. I would install uuid package21:14
geniijamesguessis: Is this some program you need to make because it's not already provided in the repositories or in a PPA?21:14
angelica_it will delete the old one?(my intent)21:14
k1l_jamesguessis: what program exactly? what ubuntu exactly? what exact error? (in a pastebin)21:14
MonkeyDustGuest37133  you mean 15.10?21:14
Guest37133or 16.0421:14
angelica_i have xubuntu on usbpen but when i insert it on this older version of xubuntu instead of autorun the install it run how call it simulation of it till the pen is in21:17
jamesguessiswell the program I want is here https://github.com/MCMrARM/mcpelauncher-linux21:18
jamesguessisI'm using 16.0421:18
angelica_how is called here the exe?21:18
jamesguessisand that's the make output21:19
MonkeyDustangelica_  insert the usb stick, reboot, select usb (F12 or so)21:19
k1l_jamesguessis: "lsb_release -d" gives you what output?21:19
angelica_ok ty alot will try21:19
jamesguessisk1l_ Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch)21:20
MonkeyDustjamesguessis  if you want to try 16.04, better use a vm21:21
MonkeyDustjamesguessis  it's what i do21:21
wileeeangelica_, This a wubi download?21:22
jamesguessisMonkeyDust: whelp it's too late now xD21:22
MonkeyDustangelica_  don't use wubi, it's the worst invention since alcohol free beer21:23
wileeeangelica_, If you working with the regular downloaded iso, never mind, there was another install type called wubi21:23
angelica_sadly didnt work with f12 keep engasging the simulation21:23
goddardk1l_: here is an example http://entrproject.org/21:23
angelica_a ok :)21:23
goddardbekks: ^21:24
MonkeyDustjamesguessis  you actually installed 16.04 ?21:25
wileeeangelica_, you mention a 'exe' and 'simulation' can you share more on those?21:25
angelica_when i wad on windows i inserted the pen i had the option to see if i want install xubutu or try it first if i like it now with xubuntu installed the pen just force me in the try simulation21:25
jamesguessisMonkeyDust: yeah, about a week ago, works just fine21:25
angelica_/whe i had21:25
wileeeangelica_, Ah simulation is a live run?21:26
goddardk1l_: if go to to the section "Watching for New Files"21:26
angelica_yea didn t find the right word21:26
angelica_live run21:26
goddardk1l_: i use find instead of LS so I can get a recursive list21:26
jamesguessiser works fine other than letting me have uuid properly21:26
MonkeyDustjamesguessis  great, but you'll have to go to #ubuntu+1 for support21:26
wileeeangelica_, Cool, so you have to boot the usb, you may have figured this out already, wont work from windows unless in a virtual.21:27
TJ-angelica_: I've not looked at the ISO boot code for xubuntu recently, but that could be because it detects an existing installation and doesn't want you to accidentically wipe it out without realizing21:27
jamesguessisMonkeyDust: so I should ask about my uuid problem there?21:28
vnonly UEFI option I can find in my Award BIOS is related to CD/DVD and from what im googling, my DVD boot issues (its freezing on debian, ubuntu, arch, lubuntu and kali2, before I can get a shell or syslog) seem to be related to UEFI..any hints on what/where I should check?  I'm also told to try nomodeset, but there are radeon issues...kinda lost21:29
angelica_yea but my intent is to wipe out because who put previous xubuntu didnt give me the pass so if i use it so after a waile he ask me the pass i clarly dont have21:29
angelica_so wanted to put a fresh xubuntu in21:29
angelica_as i put this on this notepad21:30
pukahave a awesome night guys21:30
angelica_ty u too21:30
angelica_for the boot the pc seem cheking external device first so should see the pen or even the win xp i put to try to delete this old version of xubuntu21:32
MonkeyDustjamesguessis  yes, but 16.04 isnt even in alpha yet21:32
angelica_buyed this old pc at low cost but now i cant put my fresh xubuntu i m stik to some one else stuff?21:33
wileeeangelica_, how did you load the pen with xubuntu?21:33
MonkeyDustjamesguessis  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseSchedule21:34
angelica_inserted the pen the activated the pc21:34
OEPIs there anyone here with experience with the Apache 2 MPM ITK module on Ubuntu 14.04? I am trying to use it but get the "No MPM loaded" error when I start Apache.21:34

alemI seem to be having an issue with my NIC not wanting to come online. I recently had a motherboard/PSU problem, and have replaced the faulty hardware, but the only thing that is now presenting issues is the NIC. If I run lspci I see it listed, and I know outside the OS it is working as I get a PXE Boot option from the NIC, but otherwise I am lost. Nothing appears in syslog or dmesg (that I see about it anyways).22:05

reisiobut also very much just in general22:14
Ricky_Rat5005reisio While I appreciate the suggestion, that is the platform I am working in.22:14
Seveasalem: your network interface is the p10p1 interface. Is a network cable plugged in? If so, do a screenshot of the output of sudo ethtool p10p122:14
reisioRicky_Rat5005: then I pity you, a lot :D22:14
reisioRicky_Rat5005: make _sure_ you're at least using the latest version of Hyper-V22:14
reisioearlier versions were _even more incredibly terrible at this_22:15
Ricky_Rat5005reisio Yes, it's a server 2012 R2 machine, Gen 2 Hyper-V22:15
bekksRicky_Rat5005: and make sure you are using the "nomodeset" kernel option.22:15
bekksRicky_Rat5005: Make _sure_ you have applied ALL patches available to Hyper-V.22:15
reisioalso, it's hard to imagine you wouldn't want the server install image22:15
reisioand not the desktop22:15
daftykinsnomodeset on a server install might not be relevant if a DE wasn't installed22:15
Ricky_Rat5005beeks Is that an option upon install?22:15
reisiowhich should not bother starting any graphics nonsense in the first place22:15
daftykinsreisio: you'd think, yet plymouth remains oddly o022:16
bekksRicky_Rat5005: No. It is an option of "Windows Update".22:16
Ricky_Rat5005reiso it is the server install version, not desktop. I am not complaining that there isn't any gui, there isn't any display period. I can't see what is on the screen.22:16
alemSeveas, http://imgur.com/ggOQRbi22:16
bekksRicky_Rat5005: use nomodeset.22:16
bekks!nomodeset | Ricky_Rat500522:17
ubottuRicky_Rat5005: 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 parameter22:17
amranyone here use iwlwifi as their wifi driver? having problems with power usage?22:17
reisiodaftykins: for the server image?22:17
alemThere is a cable plugged into the NIC, was initially, as I was hoping it would just pick up the static ip address I gave it before my hardware issues previously.22:17
Seveasalem: according to ethtool, no cable is plugged in (link detected: no). So check the cable.22:17
Seveashow did you give it a static IP address?22:17
Seveasnetworkmanager or /etc/network/interfaces?22:18
daftykinsreisio: well, on installs - albeit with some text theme, heh22:18

Seveasalem: actually, that's probably networkmanager. Check the interfaces file. Maybe the interface name needs to be corrected there. Alternatively, check networkmanager, maybe it is hardcoding an interface name.22:19
alemSeveas, I mean, there definitely is a cable connected, I plugged it in twice to verify. The activity light is not lighting up, but it is definitely plugged in. Here is a picture of /etc/network/interfaces: http://imgur.com/MmxjUcS22:20
reisiodaftykins: really, the server install has plymouth?22:20
* reisio shakes head at catering to Windows Server "people"22:21
Seveasalem: ok, so it did go in the interfaces file. In that file change eth0 to p10p1 and reboot.22:21
daftykinsplymouth doesn't cater for anything i thought *shrug*22:22
bekksreisio: Yes.22:23
teweaI am new to eclipse in ubuntu version  15.04 and trying to set up maven in my project. I am at very initial stage of it. I have just installed Maven on my computer but when I try to create a new project with Maven, it is not showing any Maven option.  I am using Eclipse22:23
goddardbekks: any idea how to fix this issue?22:23
daftykinsalem: regardless of link state that looks misconfigured22:23
ubottuUbuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) was the 22nd  release of Ubuntu. Download at http://releases.ubuntu.com/15.04/ - 15.04 reaches end of life in Januray of 201622:23
Seveasdaftykins: why?22:23
reisioone of the server guys at work rebooted our lone Unix box once22:23
reisiohe said he only saw a login prompt22:24
=== bryn is now known as Guest8760
bekksgoddard: Fixing which issue?22:24
reisioand was concerned it wasn't running :p22:24
goddardbekks: go to a directory with more then 1024 files and then type in your terminal "find /your/path | entr echo "file change detected" "22:24
Seveasreisio: *facepalm*22:24
reisioI guess checking that the web server was working was too difficult22:24
reisioour top server admin, he is22:24
bekksgoddard: And WHAT is the issue?22:24
reisioin his defense, he has no interest in that install22:24
goddardbekks: error for opening to many files22:24
reisioin his offense, he's a goof22:24
alemdaftykins, in which way?22:24
goddardbekks: ulimit -n stats 102422:25
bekksgoddard: WHICH erro?22:25
Seveasreisio: could you please stick to support things in here. #ubuntu-offtopic is the chatter channel22:25
alemBecause regardless, right now, it won't boot up into Ubuntu again. :/22:25
daftykinsalem: doesn't matter, focus on the link state22:25
bekksgoddard: How about FINALLY stating WHICH error you get when doing WHAT exactly?22:25
goddardentr: Too many files listed; the hard limit for your login class is 102422:25
Seveasalem: where is it stuck?22:25
reisioSeveas: read your logged msgs sometime22:25
alemIt can get to Grub, and then just boots to a black screen. After a few seconds, my monitor shows that it is in standby mode.22:26
goddardbekks: entr: Too many files listed; the hard limit for your login class is 102422:26
alemSo somewhere after Grub. I may just run boot-repair from a USB drive and see if that solves it.22:26
daftykinsalem: 14.04 server?22:26
daftykinsboot repair is not for situations like that22:26
alemdaftykins, it is 14.04 server22:27
Seveasalem: then something in your hardware is still broken. A network connection not coming up cannot cause that.22:27
alemIt seems to boot fine if I don't press any key on the keyboard to force it to book22:27
teweaI am new to eclipse in ubuntu version  15.04 and trying to set up maven in my project. I am at very initial stage of it. I have just installed Maven on my computer but when I try to create a new project with Maven, it is not showing any Maven option.  I am using Eclipse22:27
alemIf I just let the timer go through the process of the count-down timer, it boots without issue. If I press a button, it stops.22:27
reisiotewea: how'd you install maven?22:27
Seveasgoddard: either raise your open file limit or use something more modern than entr (incron comes to mind)22:28
teweareisio: from package manager22:29
reisiotewea: gj22:29
bekksgoddard: I'm callsifying those message sas symptoms. What are you actually trying to accomplish? What is the reason behind your usage of inotify?22:29
goddardbekks: im using entr22:30
reisiotewea: perhaps #maven or #eclipse ?22:30
goddardbekks: it is a program that allows you to watch the file system and execute commands22:30
alemAlright, so it has booted up, and... running ifconfig -a on p10p1 says it doesn't have any address associated with it.22:30
neldogzHi everyone, it seems that Gnupg is ignoring the default-cache-ttl timeout set within the gpg-agent.conf file. Every time I enter my password it resets.22:30
neldogzAnyone else notice this issue?22:30
teweareisio: maven22:30
Seveasalem: did you fix /etc/network/interfaces before rebooting?22:30
bekksgoddard: I perfectly do know what inotify is and what it is for. But that doesnt answer my question to you.22:30
alemYes, I manually brought up the interface this time, and it does have an IP on it now.22:31
alemSo I guess I also have to change auto eth0 to auto p10p122:31
goddardbekks: if you dont know how to fix the error then just say so22:31
bekksgoddard: If you cant explain your use case then just say so.22:32
goddardbekks: i have given you plenty of information22:32
akikgoddard: so did you look into changing nofile in limits.conf ?22:32
teweareisio: when i check the verstion(mvn --version) it is installed already22:32
daftykinsgoddard: back down and provide what you've been asked for if you expect any help22:32
goddardakik: ive gotten conflicting information22:32
k1l_goddard: why not use inotifywatch or such?22:32
reisiotewea: gj22:32
daftykinstewea: is anyone in any eclipse channels any help? (just a thought)22:33
goddardk1l_: i haven't heard of that why not? i dont know that is why i am asking a question22:33
alemSo daftykins what was wrong with the layout/formatting?22:33
daftykinsalem: doesn't matter, it's not going to bring an interface up if it's not :)22:33
ArchNoobHello here!!22:34
reisio'lo arch22:34
alemAlright, and then, finally, what could cause the system to not boot if I press the enter key to manually boot it, but will boot fine if I leave the system alone?22:34
daftykinsalem: can you boot a live session of desktop on this thing?22:34
ArchNoobreisio: hey.. I got a problem, i don't know where to exactly post it..22:34
k1l_goddard: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man1/inotifywatch.1.html and http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man1/inotifywait.1.html22:34
alemI would have to either burn a CD or make a new USB stick, but I could, yes.22:34
alemdaftykins, ^22:34
k1l_ArchNoob: if its a ubuntu issue state the issue here?22:35
reisioArchNoob: cool22:35
daftykinsalem: sounds like a plan, i'd match version if you can - it'd just be useful to see the NIC(s) working via DHCP away from the install22:35
alemWell, this is the DHCP server, so... ;)22:35
alemThats why I need it back online. :)22:35
daftykinshome or office?22:35
bekksgoddard: You didnt answer my main question. But nvm, I'm not interested in discussing the symptoms of your issue anymore.22:35
daftykinshaha, ridiculous setup22:36
ArchNoobI'm trying to record a video tutorial with simple screen recorder. And Seems whenever i'm plugged in AC cable, there is a noise coming .. I can't remove it.. How can i overcome this?22:36
Seveasalem: all that happened is that your interface name was changed due to the hardware change. With your configuration modified to match that, all should be good now :)22:36
alemIt works nice for a learning environment. :P22:36
goddardbekks: i already gave you an example of exactly what I am trying to do and a way for you to reproduce it22:36
Seveasalem: though your dhcp server config may also have the interface name in it somewhere, check that.22:36
daftykinsalem: you're learning a lot tonight :)22:36
goddardbekks: you just refuse to accept it for some strange reason22:36
ArchNoobPs. I'm using ubuntu..22:36
k1l_ArchNoob: could be hardware issue22:36
bekksgoddard: nvm, I'm not interested anymore.22:37
goddardbekks: an exact command is not good enough any more I guess22:37
alemSeveas, yeah, for the NIC. But I am still concerned that the GRUB booting issue. That is the second time it has done that. If I press the enter key to boot, before the count-down timer is finished, it stalls booting. If I leave it alone, it boots without a prooblem.22:37
bekksgoddard: correct. because it does not explain the use case WHY that command was issued. big picture, go figure.22:38
Seveasalem: hitting enter there makes it pause so you can choose something else from the menu22:38
ArchNoobk1l_: well, whenever i'm not plugged in the voice is perfect. Is there any other channel i could post this to then?22:38
ArchNoobk1l_: Like the hardware channel?22:38
daftykinsalem: oh i missed when you said it boots with no config, i take it you allocated it by hand and there was no change?22:38
goddardbekks: i want to be able to watch the file system and execute commands how is that not exact enough?22:38
ArchNoobk1l_: or Ubuntu sounds or something i don't know..22:38
alemNo, Enter should allow me to boot it up faster in this situation. This is the GRUB boot menu (that boots for memtest, ubuntu, advanced options, etc)22:38
SeveasArchNoob: sounds like interference and an improperly shielded audio input in your laptop. Not much you can do except stay on battery22:39
k1l_ArchNoob: well. when pluggin in the power cord there are mechanical/electrical things going on. and some of them are known to make a sound.22:39
alemdaftykins, no, this was done through boot-repair a while back as I was experiencing issues getting drives to recognize a raid card correctly. It was magically push itself to the front of the list sometimes and then everything would fail to boot.22:39
alemI can try posting a video, but I fear it would take too long to upload. :D22:40
daftykinsalem: what was done? just boot that live session, your install sounds exotic :P and by that i mean as stable as a cow in a shopping trolley22:40
ArchNoobWell, i guessed that for sure.. That the electrical signals and stuff are interfering .. I guess I have to buy another battery then..22:40
alemIt used to be stable before I had to switch the motherboard out.22:40
ArchNoobcause it stays for like, ten minutes and dead..!! **22:41
alemThe live session won't help fix a GRUB Booting issue if the live session bypasses the instance of grub that is having the problem.22:41
goddardbekks: ?22:41
daftykinsalem: i'm surprised your failures didn't take the RAM with it, did you memtest to be sure?22:42
akikalem: do you mean that when you turn on your computer, you only get the grub timeout counting down and don't see the grub entries?22:42
goddardk1l_: how can i use that program?22:42
alemakik, no. I mean, when I get the grub timout counting down, if I press enter to boot Ubuntu early (as opposed to waiting till it counts down to 0) it fails to boot. If I let the grub timeout countdown finish counting down to 0 completely, it works fine.22:43
akikalem: sorry don't know, they should do exactly the same thing22:44
alemYeah, I know, that is why I am sorta confused.22:44
alemI assume it is some BIOS feature that is specially built for Windows that might be causing the problem.22:45
SabbathHave you tried reinstall grub?22:45
alemI just tried that, and will reboot soon to see what happens.22:45
akikalem: what i've noticed that setting GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT and GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET to an empty value, makes all the grub entries visible vs. "hidden"22:47
daftykinsalem: that's a bit of a stretch. is your OS install on-RAID or off?22:47
lostsoulUbuntu 14.04, I have lost the NetworkManager.  When on-line, no indicator on top bar.  Any suggestions?  Can't even launch my VPN. service.22:47
alemMy OS install is not on a RAID system in any fashion. I have storage devices on RAID however that are in the fstab file.22:47
daftykinsalem: is this basically the first bunch of boot attempts since the rebuild?22:48
alemdaftykins, yep22:48
daftykinsalright, pull all your drives and reduce it to the minimal config and boot a live session of desktop to test the board out22:49
alemAnd the same thing happens after reinstalling grub, it just loads a black screen and the monitor goes into timeout mode.22:49
k1l_goddard: i am sure i linked you the man pages22:49
Seveaslostsoul: did you try rebooting? nm-applet sometimes crashes for me and the only way to get it back is a reboot.22:49
daftykinsanything else will be a total waste of effort22:49
daftykinsalem: what make + model is the new mobo?22:49
goddardk1l_: i am sure you did as well but it doesn't show an example of watching the file system and then executing a command22:49
RazzdollDoes anybody know what soft and hard line to set for the script quota to be able to set a user to 300mb, and 5gigs22:50
isReKT2000or maybe running nm-applet in terminal22:50
alemASUS m5a99x pro r2.022:50
SabbathLostsoul: run sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart22:50
daftykinsalem: ok do the above and check the BIOS version22:50
lostsoulI get some kind of strange error, that I haven't found a resolution.  I can probably duplicate if you care to see it.  It's about 4 or 5 lines.22:51
alemHm.. it isn''t necessarily that pushing the enter key fails it to boot. It just seems to be that every other time it boots, it fails.22:51
isReKT2000pastebin it22:51
alem1 works, 1 doesn't, and it keeps repeating that cycle.22:51
daftykinsit's time to get serious, not debate the quirks of a boot menu :)22:52
daftykinsthe current BIOS version (i.e. newest available) is 250122:52
isReKT2000we've should've gotten serious already ;)22:52
k1l_goddard: this is one example howto: https://xaroumenosloukoumas.wordpress.com/2011/01/28/watching-directories-for-file-changes-with-inotifywait/22:52
lostsoulsudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart22:53

lostsoulsudo: /etc/init.d/NetworkManager: command not found22:53
daftykinsisReKT2000: i was trying, too much faff going on - nice grammar btw ;)22:53
daftykinslostsoul: don't paste here please.22:53
daftykinslostsoul: "sudo service network-manager restart" i think is what you're after, but that's pre-15.0422:53
isReKT2000isn't systemctl supposed to be used?22:54
daftykinsonly if it's there22:54
daftykinsnot all supported releases use it yet.22:54
Seveaslostsoul: it's /etc/init.d/network-manager, not NetworkManager.22:54
daftykinsnot that init scripts are the way at all :)22:54
isReKT2000idk if systemd is on his system22:54
k1l_isReKT2000: depends on the ubuntu version number22:55
isReKT2000Seveas, that's pre-15.04, as said22:55
daftykinsno my suggestion is pre-15.0422:55
daftykinsisReKT2000: you're not really adding to this situation, just parroting22:55
isReKT2000k1l_, yeah22:55
isReKT2000daftykins, /me leaves22:55
Seveasthe initscript still works on 15.10, it just redirects to systemctl22:55
isReKT2000oh, well I guess22:56
alemdaftykins, it is at 2501 already22:56
SeveasI really wish ubuntu would actually remove the initscripts. It'll be impossible to unlearn using them otherwise :)22:56
daftykinsalem: alright, so pull the unneeded devices and run a minimal config with the live session, checking functionality.22:57
isReKT2000systemd is there already so removing them would be fine22:57
lostsoulIsn't finding that one either, I will look around for network stuff there...22:57
daftykinslostsoul: version?22:57
k1l_isReKT2000: not if there is no working systemd functionality22:57
isReKT2000k1l_, yeah, but maybe in a few versions it would be done22:58
lostsoulthe 'service network-manager restart' seems to have executed, but can't see any change.22:58
isReKT2000restarted yet? or does it do it on boot?22:59
lostsoul14.04 desktop + 3.19.0-30-generic23:00
isReKT2000one question though23:00
isReKT2000does it disappear straight away?23:00
isReKT2000or it does it after a period of time23:00
alemdaftykins, will be a while. Have to download a 14.04 LTS iso and take everything out....23:02
daftykinsalem: just disconnect...23:03
daftykinslostsoul: what are you after? what's going on?23:03
alemThat wouldn't help me in anyway.23:03
daftykinsyou obviously do not have 20 years hardware experience23:04
