frostschutzaraph, you should be able to do this from the running system. was it regular swap or encrypted?00:08
howudodatash_work: you might need to add a -6 flag to your telnet-->telnet -6 localhost 9000, telnet -6 900000:08
araphfrostschutz, it was regular swap. I'd assigned it during OS installation, but then I think I had to change something in partitioning, and there the area lost its 'swap' quality00:09
ash_workhowudodat: telnet: could not resolve Address family for hostname not supported00:10
howudodatash_work:your computer's ip address is what?  and that is where you run atom?  outside of a docker container?00:11
ash_workhowudodat: yeah, atom is running outside the container00:12
ash_workhowudodat: I've allocated the IP as per: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30668090/how-can-i-debug-my-docker-container-with-phpstorm00:13
ash_workhowudodat: even though I'm not using PHPStorm00:13
howudodatash_work:can you pastebin your xdebug.ini?00:15
ash_workhowudodat: I don't have one. o.O;00:16
ash_workxdebug.so is there though00:16
frostschutzaraph, check your /etc/fstab, see if it has an fstab entry. apart from that it's just a matter of mkswap /dev/partition, swapon /dev/partition, blkid /dev/partition, and adding a swap entry for that UUID to fstab. you can find examples for this online or on any other machine that is using swap00:16
ash_workhowudodat: whose path is given for zend_extension= in php.ini00:16
frostschutzaraph, make 140% sure that you're using the correct partition though or you will lose your data ;)00:16
ash_workhowudodat: and xdebug shows up in phpinfo()00:17
howudodatash_work: it seems that there is something not quite configured right with your xdebug.  Sadly I dont use it.  The stack overflow article gives some insight on what the problem might be.  and based upon the telnet tests I concur.  it seems that xdebug doesn't quite know how to get out of the container to connect to your editor on port 900000:19
araphfrostschutz, it shows a swap entry: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13305011/00:19
araphdoes it mean there exists a swap space?00:20
ash_workhowudodat: any ideas to discern where xdebug is hitting a wall?00:22
howudodatash_work: I would take the question to xdebug mailing list, or post on stackoverflow which is much more tailored to programming questions00:26
ash_workhowudodat: okay; thanks for helping me out00:27
frostschutzaraph, so it is encrypted swap after all... and the swap entry in /etc/crypttab?00:27
_habnabiton 14.04, i think i'm running upstart as init with some systemd stuff going on as well. is there a command that sets up a user session, which includes cgroups and such? previously i was doing `chpst -u someuser somecommand ...` but that isn't initializing cgroups00:27
howudodatash_work: sorry I couldn't get you going00:27
ash_workhowudodat: I was hoping this was a matter of employing a tracing mechanism or something that would let me figure out where xdebug is failing, but alas, I am not so fortunate; either way, I really appreciate your help00:27
araphfrostschutz, it's like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13305242/00:29
frostschutzaraph, is that lubuntu?00:29
araphfrostschutz, no, ubuntu00:30
frostschutzaraph, doesn't work this way in any case00:30
frenckhyxIsn't ubuntu a terrorist tool.00:31
araphfrostschutz, do you mean I cannot assign the swap area in the space where it formerly was?00:31
frostschutzaraph, not sure if this works for ubuntu as well but you need something like this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dm-crypt/Swap_encryption#UUID_and_LABEL00:32
k1l_frenckhyx: troll somewhere else please.00:32
frostschutzaraph, or use unencrypted swap, or luks encrypted swap that asks for a passphrase, or whatever00:32
araphfrostschutz, I dont mind using unencrypted swap. but there appears no swap space in my partition table of hdd now. could I create an unencrypted one without breaking anything, like you mentioned above?00:33
frostschutzaraph, unencrypted swap will break your encryption (if you're using luks or ecryptfs as in encrypted /home/user/.Private dir)00:35
fftaHi all, why "xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto --primary" don't work00:36
=== epipercepi_ is now known as epipercepi
frostschutzaraph, for unencrypted swap as I said earlier, just mkswap the partition and so on and so forth (comment out the crypttab entry)00:36
araphfrostschutz, so the solution you mentioned 'mkswap /dev/partition, swapon /dev/partition, blkid /dev/partition, and adding a swap entry for that UUID to fstab', would it work in my case, with the encrypted swap?00:37
araphwithout hazards?00:37

BlastRedwho are*03:26
pyioswhen I execute command with sudo at first ,does it mean doing it with root account ?03:26
BlastRedspinner you say, reisio?03:27
k1l_BlastRed: you. since you asked what "a spinner" is. a traditional hard disk got spinning metal platters in it.03:28
reisioBlastRed: uh yup03:28
BlastRedkll_ oh03:28
reisiopyios: in this case yes03:28
k1l_pyios: its root permissions, not the root account. but in the end the result is nearly the same03:29
BlastRedreisio:  im not sure if my harddisk is a spinner, but i think it may be. Why might that matter for the input/output error?03:30
VictoriaXOXOk1l_ = admin? :o03:30
k1l_BlastRed: did you reboot? did that change anything? i still think that is a disk hardware failure03:30
reisioBlastRed: well, some storage devices you can't easily or usefully reconnect the cables to03:31
BlastRedkll_ yes, i rebooted. note that my ubuntu crashed and now only opens busybox and im on a ubuntu install CD to fix errors. Rebooting does not do much anything03:32
BlastRedreisio: im using a laptop03:32
BlastRed. -.03:32
k1l_BlastRed: which could be all explained because of a failing hard disl03:32
BlastRedkll_ yes. I am trying to find a way to fix the errors to use the computer for untill christmas. For reasons unknown to the irc.03:33
reisioanyway, if you haven't sorted it yet, the most efficient solution is probably to replace it03:33
BlastRedreisio: expecting to christmas time . . .03:33
k1l_BlastRed: try to read the smart data if that is possible. but if its failing its failing. then you need to replace it03:34
reisioBlastRed: get a cheap usb stick and use that till then03:34
k1l_there is no magic command to make broken hardware work again.03:34

OerHeksgoal ? Oh, to format the Hard disk in order to make it NTFS to reinstall windows 7 ..now postfix configs .. i am lost there, BlastRed ...03:42
hoodediceresult: laptop overheats in backpack. Good thing is that it heats me up. Bad thing is that it then has no battery left for me to be able to do anything productive03:43
VictoriaXOXOWindows... *shivers*03:43
BlastRed0erheks the windows part is not what im worried about exactly. im just trying to clear the computer of of the errors so i can even get as far to reinstall/install ANYTHING03:43
OerHeksput in your windows disk and hit the button03:44
remona-dashdo we have daily xubuntu or lubuntu builds?03:44
BlastRedits not that simple xD03:44
remona-dashisos I mean.03:44
BlastRedi need to format the harddisk to NTFS in order for it to show up in windows installation03:44
hoodediceBlast... you want to reinstall windows?03:44
BlastRedright. because it was gone when i decided to go linux mint03:44
VictoriaXOXOBlastRed: Don't do it! There's still time! You have so much to live for! :(03:45
hoodediceoookay, and I guess without losing mint?03:45
BlastRedwhich had the input/output error which i somehow fixed...03:45
OerHeksoh, mint issues03:45
hoodedicemint tissues03:45
reisioremona-dash: does it matter?03:45
BlastRedand when i fixed and installed ubuntu to erase linux mint, ubuntu 1 day after had the same problem03:45
reisiowhat problem?03:46
BlastRednow im like, screw the ubuntu os all together and im trying to go back to windows because i have a windows key03:46
reisioBlastRed: k, well; perhaps you're in the wrong channel, then03:46
reisioremona-dash: ?03:46
BlastRedNo.. . *facepalm*03:46
BlastRedIm trying to either reinstall linux mint or windows03:46
remona-dashreisio: Yup; I need It just for its kernel. I need a live cd with newish kernel. 4.1 or above03:47
hoodediceBlast, google lilo03:47
reisioBlastRed: so decide :)03:47
OerHeksyeah. put in your windows disk and hit the button, if the disk is full errors/bad block, forget it.03:47
remona-dash 4.3 would be nice!03:47
reisioremona-dash: oh, why's that?03:47
BlastRedbut focus on the problem: Im trying TO FORMAT THE HARD DRIVE03:47
hoodedicethen, put in your windows disk and install it as is03:47
BlastRedit doesnt matter which os03:47
k1l_BlastRed: no03:47
reisioBlastRed: what's stopping you?03:47
hoodediceyour windows disk can format the drive03:47
k1l_BlastRed: you dont to format at all. that will make the OS installer you will want to run03:47
k1l_BlastRed: the problem is: your disk seems to be hardware wise dead.03:48
BlastRedLook, when i try to install ubuntu, i get the input/output error03:48
k1l_BlastRed: no, you need to look03:48
hoodediceBlast, is it a seagate hard drive?03:48
BlastRed??? ?03:48
reisioBlastRed: that's another matter, pick one03:48
k1l_BlastRed: nor ubuntu, nor mint nor windows can repair hardware failure.03:48
OerHeksyeah, next argument will be the postfix configs?03:48
remona-dashreisio: compiling a kernel for a system I don't know the hardware details. i would boot that system with ubuntu and still the list of modules that way. also I may go bunckers and still the whole thing. (i.e the ubuntu kernel and the initramfs image)03:48
BlastRedthis is silly, i know that kll03:49
k1l_BlastRed: if you know then stop telling the same wrong thing over and over again03:49
BlastRedwhich is..03:49
BlastRedwhich is?03:49
reisioremona-dash: well the distro is irrelevant, you can take any kernel from any GNU/Linux distro and plug it into any other03:49
remona-dashI hate spellchecks; **steal**03:49
k1l_that you want to format the drive.03:49
=== fginther` is now known as fginther
k1l_BlastRed: only thing you can do now on ubuntu is to make sure the drive is dead. so use the smartmontools.03:50
inteusif the hard drive has failed, you won't be able to format it.03:50
BlastRedjesus christ m803:50
inteusyo, take a chill pill03:50
remona-dashreisio: do you know any distros besides ubuntu with kernel >4.103:50
BlastRedkll_ did you figure out which mode i should use yet?03:50
BlastRedbecause i dont know.03:50
k1l_BlastRed: that just doesnt matter if you run a live-system right now03:51
reisioremona-dash: why, has Ubuntu got it?03:52
BlastRedwhat? im talking about postfix configuration for the harddrive03:52
reisioBlastRed: hahah03:52
reisiogood one03:52
BlastRedthe only reason i mentioined the hard drive format is because someone mentioned it first .-.03:52
BlastRedreisio:  good one what!?!?!?03:52
Steven_MHi all, the groups command is not showing all the groups my user is suposed to be in.03:52
k1l_BlastRed: postfix doesnt matter now. you got other issues than wanting to send mails03:52
reisioSteven_M: so add them: gpasswd03:53
hoodediceanyway, let me reiterate my problem: After suspending xubuntu 15.04 on my laptop, if I close the lid, the laptop boots back up03:53
BlastRedkll_ so local only?03:53
BlastRedkll_ or no config?03:53
k1l_BlastRed: no config.03:53
BlastRedthis computer is only like  4 years old anyway it should be fine... haha03:54
k1l_BlastRed: no03:54
BlastRedim kidding03:54
BlastRedkll_ , it is installed, now what.03:55
k1l_see the wiki page.03:55
BlastRedkll_ doesnt say much. im cchecking my drive for smart capability. what now ._.03:56
Steven_Mreisio: I've done that, but groups is only showing the login group, not the extra group.03:57
reisioSteven_M: the 'extra' group?03:58
reisioSteven_M: su - user03:58
reisioSteven_M: or log out & back in03:58
BlastRedkll_  the background LONG test has begun. I can wait it out. Question still remains: Will you still be here for results? and if so how does this prove my thing is dead.03:58
reisioSteven_M: groups aren't applied immediately03:58
BlastRedthing equalling hard drive.03:58
reisioBlastRed: replacing the device is a better use of your time/effort03:58
Steven_Mreisio:  oh, sorry03:59
k1l_BlastRed: it will make a report with different categories. see there whats going wrong03:59
BlastRedreisio: it costs money.03:59
BlastRedkll_ okay. This is what i got, by the way when i tried to view results not knowing how long it may take: === START OF READ SMART DATA SECTION === Device does not support Self Test logging04:00
reisioBlastRed: only if you spend money on it04:00
k1l_BlastRed: broken harware costs money to replace. yes. so its one broken hardware or no hardware for you04:00
reisioI'm sure the cost of a hard disk would not break your credit rating from now till December04:00
inteusnurullah: hi04:01
BlastRedreisio: it wont. im not a technician though. I dont know how to put in a new harddrive.04:01
reisioBlastRed: then waiting till December won't help you anyway04:01
reisioBlastRed: it's pretty simple, though04:02
BlastRedreisio:  for a laptop?04:02
reisiofind disassembly instructions for your laptop online, remove screws, replace drive, reverse04:02
kisbyes simple04:02
inteusBlastRed: the laptop manufacturer should have tutorials/instructions how to replace hard drive04:02
reisiohard drives in particular are usually more easily accessed than other bits04:02
reisioeven on laptops, usually04:02
BlastRedreisio: i cant find any places to buy a new one04:02
k1l_BlastRed: look into the manual from your make and model.04:02
reisiounless it's an "ultrabook" :p but even some of those are simple04:02
BlastRedjust now searched it up on google04:02
reisioBlastRed: new what, hard disk?04:02
BlastRedreisio: yes?04:03
BlastRedany websites where i can get a new one?04:03
danmulveythey keep them in the case with the razors at cvs04:03
BlastRedwhats the price range anyway?04:03
danmulveygotta get a manager to open the case though04:03

reisioamazon will probably have one or two better deals04:04
BlastRedreisio: could you pick one thats good? i really dont know which one is great and which one is terrible. i can go for around 12004:04
reisioBlastRed: just get the cheapest that doesn't have overwhelming "this is broken" reviews04:05
reisioBlastRed: what capacity do you need?04:05
BlastRedmy current one had 500 GB and that was great.04:05
BlastRedAnd is there a certain size? this computer is considerably small04:06
inteusinwhere #ubuntu becomes ##hardware04:06
BlastRedi had a good laugh over that.04:06
reisiointeus: yay boring commentary04:06
reisioBlastRed: yes, it's probably a 2.5″ drive04:06
reisioBlastRed: starting at $35 http://is.gd/ticehe04:07

reisiobcx: if it's not using autocutsel, it's probably GNOME's doing04:08
rightarmfastcan anybody please help me?04:10
reisiorightarmfast: no, but some people probably can04:10
rightarmfasti have 2 GB RAM and 4 GB swap04:10
rightarmfastdo i need to reduce swappiness?04:10
reisiorightarmfast: nope04:10
rightarmfastif yes, then to how much?04:10
reisioyou could reduce swap, though04:11
rightarmfastthanks reisio04:11
reisioyou won't really need more than 2GB swap04:11
reisioand that's to do with hibernation and not really swapping04:11
BlastRedi should have this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA5AD3GM6293 in a max of two weeks04:11
rightarmfasti thought there was a thumb rule like swap = 2 x RAM04:11
BlastRedreisio:  is there anyway i could possibly contact you when i get it?04:11
k1l_rightarmfast: today you dont want to use swap in daily usage since that is very slow compared to the speed of ram.04:11
BlastRedim going to need it tbh04:11
reisioBlastRed: sit back and wait, then04:11
k1l_BlastRed: better ask in #hardware for that04:12
reisioBlastRed: it's very simple, you don't need a personal instructor04:12
reisiomore than likely, on the bottom of your laptop is an obvious panel, with a couple obvious screws, behind which will be the hard disk, which you pop out and replace04:12
BlastRedit cant be that simple04:12
reisioall of it is very durable, you won't break anything04:12
BlastRed ;- ;  )04:13
BlastRedThis place is considerably depressing04:13
reisioif you were replacing the keyboard I'd say be a little careful, but you aren't04:13
rightarmfastBlastRed i suggest you do some reading on hardware forums like tomshardware and watchh some youtube videos :)04:13
rightarmfastI added a RAM stick to my PC that way. i was afraid i will break something because it needs to be pushed hard04:14
BlastRedanyways, thank you members so much  for the help. i appreiciate it.04:14
reisioreplacing ram can be more involved, yeah04:14
reisiosometimes the contraptions they use are absurd and fragile04:14
BlastRedive replaced ram before04:14
reisiofor laptops in particular04:15
reisiostill not usually a big deal, though04:15
bcxreisio: I'm not aware of such a GNOME feature, eg w/o gpaste04:15
rightarmfastthe motherboard sagged a little and i almost had a heart attack. until the knobs clicked04:15
reisioI got this SBC once and they'd put an extra daughter board meant to be removed underneath the ram, and I was pushing down on it and if I hadn't been very delecate it would've cracked04:15
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!04:16
reisiobcx: nor I, but that's what it'd be if it's not autocutsel04:16
bcxreisio: I didn't manage to identify the clipboard sync mecanism04:16
birdjesusguys, tell me plx how i can remove unity from ubuntu 15.10 and make gnome3 using by default?04:16
birdjesuslast time i tried do this i ruined all04:16
reisiobcx: does it matter?04:16
reisiobirdjesus: ask ubottu about !notunity04:16
bcxreisio: I would like to use it on my custom ubuntu gnome04:17
rightarmfastis unity a DE or UI?04:17
reisiobcx: just use autocutsel04:17
reisiorightarmfast: it's both, arguably04:17
reisiomost specifically, it's a particular configuration of GNOME and compiz04:17
bcxreisio: autocutsel does not resolve to select+paste issue04:17
reisiobcx: sure it does04:17
bcxreisio: not for pasting over selection, to my knowledge04:18
reisiobcx: yes, but to mine04:18
k1l_unity is "another shell for the gnome3 basis". but only on the gnome3 basis on traditional xserver.04:18
birdjesusidk. im newbie with dis. just installed ubuntu from minimal cd and chosen ubuntu-desktop :P04:18
ubottuUbuntu 11.10 and higher use the !Unity desktop environment by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown.04:18
reisiobirdjesus: ^04:18
bcxreisio: autocutsel -f ; autocutsel -s PRIMARY -f     ??04:19
rightarmfastso it's like built over GNOME 3? like Pantheon and Cinnamon?04:19
k1l_birdjesus: install "gnome-shell" to get the gnome desktop04:19
reisiobcx: I don't recall the particulars, but you can use autocutsel04:19
reisiorightarmfast: similarly, yes04:19

wizzkiddcan anyone here help me with bonding 2 NIC's... I previously had this done okay before I reinstalled Ubuntu and had to reconfigure my network interfaces.  Somehow my last install referred to my dual NIC as p1p1 and p1p2, but his time its enp2s0f0 and enp2s0f1 ... do the ifaces have a new name introduced in an update?17:16
TJ-gremlyn: Network Manager does some verbose logging to /var/log/syslog; there might be a clue there17:17
gremlynthanks TJ- I'll looks17:17
TJ-wizzkidd: sounds like the original naming used biosdevnames, but how you have systemd persistent naming17:17

Jakey3is there a way to stop chromium logging history17:20
gremlynany reason my syslog would have a bunch of "smtp: Failed: Connect failed" entries? says there are 37k+ messages, but from what?17:21
TJ-bagolytoll: No, you mark the failed drive as failed, remove it from the array, add the replacement drive as a spare to the arrray and then make it active. The data will then be synced to it.17:21
TJ-gremlyn: any process ID number next to those messages you can correlate to the originating process?17:22
bagolytollhm thx17:22
gremlynTJ-, nullmailer[4064] ?17:22
wizzkiddTJ-: I previously had 15.04 ... I formatted the drive and started fresh with 15.04 again followed by an update / upgrade / dist-upgrade17:22
TJ-gremlyn: OK, so whatever nullmailer is cannot connect :)17:22
TJ-wizzkidd: so the system has always been 15.04?17:23
wizzkiddTJ-: yes17:23
gremlynTJ-, hah but why nothing should be sending mail from this computer :P17:23
TJ-wizzkidd: OK, 15.04 is a weird transistional hybrid of Upstart and Systemd init systems. I can only think that the original install was using Upstart and biosdevnames (or statically assigned names via udevd) and this latest doesn't have those, so Systemd is using its persistent interface naming scheme now17:24
TJ-!info nullmailer | gremlyn17:25
ubottugremlyn: nullmailer (source: nullmailer): simple relay-only mail transport agent. In component universe, is extra. Version 1:1.13-1 (wily), package size 88 kB, installed size 451 kB17:25
wizzkiddTJ-: ok, that sounds feasible.  I seem to have the bonding working now, I just had to use the alternative interface names. I dont even have eth0 or em0 now17:26
gremlynhah apparently my minecraft server tries to send an email every time it saves the world17:26
TJ-gremlyn: the only package that depends on nullmailer is exim4-config17:26

game0guys, sudo apt-get isn't working with me17:28
OerHekswizzkidd, "predictable network interfaces names default on" can be turned off, in 15.04,  http://askubuntu.com/a/62849217:28
TJ-wizzkidd: right, Systemd has introduced these persistent interface names to try to avoid race condition naming errors that were becoming more frequent wth hotplug/discovery race conditions. Previously eth* naming was on a first-discovery, first-allocated basis and that could change on a per-boot basis17:28

k1ldevsys: ubuntu added scripts to the kernel install so old kernels get marked as "to be removed by apt-get autoremove" but i dont know since when that works18:45
k1ldevsys: at least since 15.04 i only need to run "sudo apt-get autoremove" to get rid of old kernels18:46

daftykinsdevsys: every time i install a new one i reboot into it then purge the last :)18:48

daftykinsyeah you won't be able to autoremove whilst an install attempt is going18:48
devsysok, I guess I'll have to manually purge some of the old kernels and then retry18:49
daftykinsyou'll need to use "sudo dpkg -r linux-image-extra-3.13.0-##-generic linux-image-3.13.0-##-generic" to clean some out18:49
devsysok thanks trying that now18:49
bruinsis there a way to install 15.05.01 LTS if you are -currently- on 15.05.03 LTS (.01 will maintain 3.x kernel, while .03 will require a kernel upgrade to 4.x to maintain support)18:49
baizonbruins: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases18:50
k1lbruins: its about enablement stack. if you install the "linux-generic" you will add the 14.04 3.13 kernel again.18:51
ubottuThe Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases. see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack18:51
bruinsok hmm18:51
bruinsi dont need that , it is a VM18:51
bruinsit says on the release page that support ends fairly soon, but the support doesnt matter you are saying?18:52
k1lbruins: no18:52
daftykinsbruins: 15.04 is EOL end of January i think yeah, you shouldn't be running it by then18:52
k1lsee https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack  it explains how the kernel is supported on the LTS versions.18:53
k1lbruins: you can switch the (backports) kernels easily with the enablement-stack packages like shown on that wiki page18:53
bruinsi apologize18:53
bruinsi am on 14.04.03, and this is re: 14.0418:53
bruinsso i am looking at 2019 EOL18:53
bruins:/ sorry18:53
higgsbosonI had to restart for the cursor problem18:53
bruinsEOL for 14.04.03 is before 14.04.01, i would like to stay with 01 i feel is the right choice, but i am currently on 14.04.0318:54
k1lbruins: either you go "back" to the 3.13 original 14.04 kernel or you move through the backports kernels to the 16.04 kernel then.  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Support?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=Ubuntu+Kernel+Support+Schedule.png18:55
k1lbruins: do you even read what i explain?18:55
bruinsi see your highlight above now, ok18:55
bruinsi missed when typing..18:55
daftykinsbruins: 14.04 can be using the supported 3.13 kernel *AND* show up as being 14.04.3 when checking version - it's about updated packages.18:55
devsysk11 & daftykins: Thanks for the help, I got it straightened out18:56
=== neurotus is now known as Guest26654
daftykinsbruins: installing 14.04.3 from 14.04.3 media can show up as being the 3.19 kernel due to coming with the vivid (15.04) HWE stack. this kernel does *NOT* go EOL when vivid goes EOL.18:56
daftykinsi believe all of this is covered in the links you were given :)18:56
k1lbruins: see the wiki page the bot mentioned. it explains it and got nice pictograms :)18:57
bruinsok :) wow yes18:57
bruinsi am writing your help to emails now18:57

Massrawydaftykins: thanks.19:00
PiciMassrawy: er... are you asking for support for that?19:00
bruinsi am deploying project to 14.04.03, and spec includes software/kernel support for x years.. i wrote asking the same questions i am asking here. :) now with real answers, and eye-candy answers..19:00
daftykinsi figured the question might have been coming :)19:00
PiciMassrawy: Because this is the channel for that, I dont know why you were pointed to the other channel.19:00
daftykinsbruins: ah ok, yeah as long as you setup new systems from 14.04.0 or 14.04.1 media then, they'll dist-upgrade to 14.04.3 but keep the 3.13 kernel and not have any HWE stack hassle19:01

Guest76042apparently that channel seemed inactive..so I asked here considering that elementary is based on ubuntu 14.0419:05
daftykinsGuest76042: yes, however we do not support it here regardless. if you want support, install a supported Ubuntu release, sorry.19:06
Bashing-omGuest76042: But in Elementary, there are differences we here on ubuntu would not be aware of . thus no support .19:06
MassrawyPici: yes I am19:06
MassrawyI think my issue is something silly but I have been focusing on it so much I just need another set of eyes to point what is the problem19:07
daftykinsMassrawy: you need to type it out then, possibly in a http://paste.ubuntu.com if it's long :)19:07
PiciMassrawy: The task that you described in the other channel would run daily at 6am, is that when you want it to run?19:07

sarinki just downloaded the nodejs tarball from https://nodejs.org/en/download/stable/ and then unzipped it, where do i put this folder now? where would it go if i had installed from apt? (i didn't because i wanted v5.0.0)19:14
PiciMassrawy: what you can do is include a >> /root/apt.log 2>&1  at the end of your crontab line (before the comment, of course) which should log all stdout and stderr to that file.  Also make sure that there is indeed an entry for this line in /var/log/auth.log, it should say that CRON ran something.19:14
daftykinssarink: finding a PPA would've been a lot better than attempting a manual install19:16
Massrawyok .. making changes now and will update19:18
Massrawyrun-parts /var/spool/cron/crontabs -v would be the correct way to force/test the cron job, right ?19:20
sarinkdaftykins: it's a zip file of the binaries, is it more complicated than just putting it somewhere and adding the bin folder to the path?19:22
sarinki don't have to compile it19:22
PiciMassrawy: I've never done it that way, usually I just modify the crontab to have the thing run close to now.19:22
mcphailMassrawy: silly question, but have you made sure there is a newline at the end of the crontab?19:23
Massrawymcphail: you know what, actually there is now new line ! ... would that be an issue ?19:24
mcphailMassrawy: yes - see the end of "man 5 crontab"19:24
MassrawyPici: adjusted to 2 minutes from now and will see how it goes19:24
mcphailMassrawy: age old crontab bug19:25
Massrawymcphail: Pici ... thank you both ! it seems like the run-parts command was throwing me off, as suggested by Pici adjusting the time to test seemed to have kicked the job, for the sake of sanity I added the line as suggested by mcphail19:28
daftykinssarink: i'm not a dev so i can't comment on the usage of that product, however i'd be willing to bet there are channels where folk might be able to tell you if there *is* a PPA or better way to set it up; try messaging alis to find channels19:29

d4rklit3and get apt to reset clean20:27
Seveasd4rklit3: what are the symptoms?20:27
d4rklit3well like i had nodejs installed20:27
nagromltdaftykins /?/ rear speakers stopped working after upgrade to 15.1020:27
k1ld4rklit3: "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" in a pastebin please20:27
daftykinsnagromlt: 5.1 set huh? is this on a stereo audio source?20:27
Seveasd4rklit3: and don't use the enter key as if it's a spacebar...20:27
nagromltdaftykins /?/ usually I'll just reinstall pulse/alsa but this time they still dont work20:28
nagromltdaftykins /?/ 4.120:28
OerHeksVictoriaXOXO, use it at your own risc, and report to the maintainer, not here.20:28
daftykinsnagromlt: right but what's the source material?20:28
OerHekswe don't do anything about it.20:28
daftykinsnagromlt: if you're playing stereo, you need to set something to tell PA to clone the output to the rear pair as well, i would wager.20:29
nagromltdaftykins /?/ not clone.  had full surround befor20:30
daftykinsnagromlt: you only get surround audio when the source is surround, e.g. a film - you still haven't answered what the source material is.20:30
nagromltdaftykins /?/ source? the server...?20:31
daftykinsthe source of the audio20:31
nagromltmy cpu20:31
daftykinsi.e. the thing we're talking about20:31
Seveasd4rklit3: which ubuntu version are you running? You have trusty and quantal sources...20:32
nagromltubuntu is the source?20:32
daftykinsexample: watching youtube, sound is stereo = 2.020:32
daftykinsno you're talking absolute nonsense20:32
d4rklit3im sorry what?20:32
Seveasd4rklit3: then remove the quantal and mongodb repos from /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d20:32
nagromltgames I guess... but tried other things besides games... like playing audio (surround) in VLC???20:33
nagromltall the things.20:33
daftykinsyou have to set up VLC appropriate to your speaker config most likely, a 5.1 dolby digital soundtrack on a film would need to be decoded to multi channel audio if your setup is analog20:33
daftykinswhereas with a digital setup, e.g. optical out, passthrough audio needs to be used to bitstream dolby digital to a comptible receiver20:33
nagromltyes... codecs that support surround dont work20:34
d4rklit3Seveas, now what?20:34
nagromltcodecs in THE source20:34
daftykinsnagromlt: yeah so configure your player appropriately20:34
d4rklit3im tryin to upgrade my node version20:34
Seveasd4rklit3: once you removed that, apt should not gets its knickers knotted anymore :)20:34
d4rklit3adding the new PPA doesn't install anymore20:34
daftykinsd4rklit3: your sources file is hosed, it contains multiple ubuntu versions combined, you can't do that.20:34
d4rklit3ok let me try20:34
daftykinsoh Seveas already replied, sorry Seveas20:34
d4rklit3that worked20:35
Seveasd4rklit3: we don't support PPA's. If apt is behaving correctly after fixing sources.list, our work here is done :) If you want help with a nodejs ppa, contact the ppa's author :)20:35
kisbwhats wrong with the ppa20:36
OerHekskisb, a PPA is just a way to make your builds on ubuntu available for anybody, and you should give support for it. we don't.20:37

OerHeks!ot | Goku_20:42
ubottuGoku_: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!20:42
VictoriaXOXOQ: When people ask me to "pastebinit" things, are there any files I should NOT share? Things that contain personal information, encryption keys, passwords, or stuff like that?20:43
Goku_!ot | Goku_20:43
ubottuGoku_, please see my private message20:43
daftykinsJediMaster: with which kernel?20:43
Goku_Hi I saw your private messgae. I never used this app before20:44
JediMasterdaftykins, 3.16.0-51-generic #69~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 7 15:32:41 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux20:44
dziqhi to all20:44
k1lGoku_: this channel is for technical support only. please use ##chat for chatting20:44
maxtimboVictoriaXOXO, of course, but it isn't often somebody will ask for something that has such information in it20:44
VictoriaXOXOmaxtimbo: How do I know, though? :/20:44
JediMasterGoku_, type: /join ##chat20:45
daftykinsJediMaster: ok you're using trusty (14.04) with the utopic (3.16) kernel hardware enablement stack there; either run 14.04's vanilla 3.13 kernel or upgrade to the vivid (15.04) 3.19 kernel20:45
dziqI've just installed Ubunut 15.10 on my dell e7240 can anybody tell me how to disable keyboard backlight on boot?20:45
dziqI don't need it20:45
JediMasterdaftykins, do you think it's a kernel related issue then?20:45
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: main reason we give support in an open channel that, so others can warn if something is unsafe to run20:45
maxtimboYou can usually tell right off the bat, VictoriaXOXO . it would say something like password or encryption. Aside from that, most private user data is encrypted and non-human-readable anyway.20:46
daftykinsJediMaster: i'm telling you what to try since you don't have the information i require - however normally load is 100% per core, so 2-9% sounds like nothing to me if that's from the guests perspective20:46
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: maxtimbo: Oh, okay.20:46
explosiveVictoriaXOXO: /etc/shadow and ~/.ssh/*20:46
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: maxtimbo: explosive: So almost all .log files people ask for are safe to share?20:46
maxtimboJust use your best judgement, VictoriaXOXO . and if something strikes you as "I shouldn't share that" then don't share it.20:47
JediMasterdaftykins, sorry this is averaged out over 16 cores, it certainly wasn't massively high, but more an indication something was wrong20:47
VictoriaXOXOmaxtimbo: My best judgement doesn't reach Linux. XD20:47
JediMasterdaftykins, have been over the mysql config many times in #mysql and other dba's have looked at it, and just noticed this with the zabbix graphs which I've not seen high system usage before20:48
=== explosive is now known as uyar
daftykinsJediMaster: ok, well my preference is definitely to avoid these HWEs entirely and keep 14.04 trusty on the 3.13 kernel - but YMMV20:49
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: often a config file is requested to be pastebin'd, it's easy to take a quick glance over it, or perhaps grep it for common strings like 'password' etc.20:50
=== uyar is now known as EriC^^
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: the flipside of the coin is sometimes i get people here refusing to provide me with the needed information to help due to paranoia, so there's definitely a middle road :)20:50
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: Hmm. That could be annoying. How do I do the grip thing again?20:51

VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: kisb: EriC^^: Okay, sounds good.20:52
VictoriaXOXOI got this huge bookmarks folder with Ubuntu and terminal help, but no easy overview of common commands that people in here type about. No kewl cheat sheets you use?20:53
daftykinsjust learning really, you should write your own notes really to get going quickly20:53
ubottuThe linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome), K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE), or Menu -> Accessories -> LXTerminal (LXDE). Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal20:54
daftykinshmm that's not the one i was thinking of20:54
OerHekswriting cheat sheats will automatic memorize the commands20:54
daftykinsreally you have to stick at things and use them regularly for them to go in20:55
kisboooh i wrote one some time back. a short guide20:55
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: i always recommend the free Linux intro course on www.edx.org - called LFS101x though, for those wanting a leg up20:58

ArgentoI try to start a c++ program with expect but it doesnt seem to work, isn't the line spawn "./program" correct?21:02
daftykinsin my experience youtube advice folks are well below average21:03
kisbthey are little kids sometimes21:03
wafflejockArgento: the c++ source would have to have been compiled into a binary and it needs to have executable permissions to be run otherwise the command you wrote is correct21:05
Argentowell it is compiled into a binary I hope, when I type ./program it starts21:06
Argentodoesnt that mean it's compiled?21:06
wafflejockArgento: yeah not sure I understand what the question is if the program launches, just confirming?21:06
Argentowell the question is why it launches if I type ./program manually in the terminal but it just prints "spawn ./program" at the terminal when I run my expect script21:07
wafflejockArgento: hmm yeah not sure why a script would just output the contents to the console instead of running... how are you running the script itself? also can you pastebin the script and sanitize any secrets in it21:09
ArgentoI run it by typing ./script21:10
ArgentoI will paste it, hold on21:10
VictoriaXOXOQ: Is updating through the update manager the same thing as doing sudo apt-get update/upgrade?21:10
EriC^^VictoriaXOXO: yeah, it's like apt-get dist-upgrade21:10
Argentohere it is21:11
Argentonot much but I just wanted to see if I could get the program running as a start21:11
k1lVictoriaXOXO: not exactly. you will need to run "apt-get dist-upgrade" in terminal21:11
VictoriaXOXOEriC^^: dist-upgrade? Not regular update? :/21:11
EriC^^!dist-upgrade | VictoriaXOXO21:11
ubottuVictoriaXOXO: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.21:11

kisbexpect is not a shell21:12
k1lVictoriaXOXO: better use the new "apt" command since its not that confusing "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" that makes sure you get all the package updates21:12
wafflejockArgento: haven't used this myself but the example I'm seeing here uses -f flag on the expect call itself21:12
wafflejockArgento: http://www.admin-magazine.com/Articles/Automating-with-Expect-Scripts21:12
EriC^^VictoriaXOXO: dist-upgrade is like a more powerful version of upgrade, it can remove or install packages to upgrade them, ( it basically lets you upgrade the kernel usually )21:12
daftykinsdjango_: reduce the amount of lines you spam us with when you ask things21:12
causativeI removed Firefox because I was having some problems with it, and now it won't reinstall - it can't fetch certain package files21:12
VictoriaXOXOEriC^^: My head spins.21:12
Argentowafflejock: thanks for the tips, I will give it a try21:12
VictoriaXOXOk1l: But the automatic update manager is so easy. :(21:13
maneshello everyone, do you know of an effective and loss-free compression tool for large-sized files (50-100gb) like images or iso?21:13
k1lVictoriaXOXO: its automated.21:13
daftykinscausative: old version grab attempt there, did you not update package lists prior?21:13
k1lso you use that if it works for you21:13
VictoriaXOXOk1l: Well... don't I have to manually run that command every now and then?21:13
daftykinscausative: which release are you on? "cat /etc/issue"21:13
EriC^^VictoriaXOXO: update just updates the package list, upgrade upgrades most packages except for the kernel, and other packages that might need additional packages to be installed or removed, that's where dist-upgrade comes in, and it can install those too21:13
Picidjango_: thats a file, you'd need to edit it with your favorite editor21:14
causative14.04.3 LTS21:14
VictoriaXOXOEriC^^: Oh, okay. Makes sense now.21:14
k1lVictoriaXOXO: the update-manager is fine. if you want to manually do it on the terminal you need the commands we said21:14

k1ldjango_: dont do that21:15
k1ldjango_: 3rd party repos like that PPA belong to sources.list.d21:15
Picidjango_: that wouldn't be a valid entry.  if you want that added, do sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable21:15
bpromptmanes:       depending on what you're trying to do, but compression tools like zip or imaging tools are by definition lossless, otherwise there would be no sense in using them for archiving21:15

ubottuGuest11850: The main Ubuntu channels require that you speak in calm, polite English. For other languages, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList21:24
bpromptmanes:    if the .img file has some compression already, you won't get much savings out of any compression tool though, usually depending on the imaging app used to do the .img, you can do some compression "while" making the .img21:24
manesbprompt, the file itself is not compressed.21:24
bpromptmanes:    then try bzip2 or rar21:24
=== miguel is now known as Guest29347
wafflejockmanes: just did some searching on gzip vs bzip2 vs 7zip apparently in that order they typically fastest to slowest in terms of compressing and least compression to greatest compression (without adjusting defaults)21:26
wafflejockmanes: they all have flags for adjusting the particular details of the compression as well though21:26
maneswafflejock, so if speed doesnt matter, 7zip hast the best compression rate21:27
manesis the one to choose, I mean21:27
wafflejockmanes: in general with the defaults... not sure about all the details though21:27
jct500thzI'm having a slight sound problem. my sound is coming out of my laptop instead of my TV, and I think it's because my laptop's the default... Is there any way to change that? I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with XUbuntu installed, and I'm using Pulseaudio.21:28
daftykinsso xfce? pavucontrol might help to pick device, jct500thz ?21:28

daftykinsdevsys: server or desktop?21:39
wafflejockbprompt_: I don't think the benchmarks I linked are related to 7z in any way and found quite a few posts claiming the same results21:39
daftykinsdevsys: as long as 'resolvconf' has been purged, you can hardcode resolv.conf after one reboot21:39

MonkeyDustdevsys  nameserver x.x.x.x ... save... then: sudo resolvconf -u21:40
devsysMonkeyDust: that is what I did to add the new nameservers, it was blank, the current nameservers in resolv.conf aaren't listed. Does that mean resolv.conf was likely initially edited manually>21:40
bprompt_wafflejock:     hmmm I wasn't referring to your links :), I was just pointing out that the 7zip website will say things like that, since that's what manes mentioned, manes was referring to the 7zip website though, not your links as I understand it21:40
MonkeyDustdevsys  yes, it's a blank file, add 'namerver x.x.x.x' and save21:40
manesbprompt, it is not written on 7zip page, but on ubuntu man page21:40
devsysMonkeyDust: thanks, I did that and now I have the new nameservers as well as the old ones in my resolv.conf, should I just manually remove them from that file?21:41
daftykinsdevsys: perhaps you're seeing in there?21:41
MonkeyDustdevsys  did you   sudo resolvconf -u   <-- means update21:41
wafflejockbprompt_: ah yeah gotcha, yeah never good to just trust the salesman or provider to tell you who's best21:41
manesI said 'bprompt, 7zip man page says it has the highest compression, that would be preferable' not '7zip website'21:41
bprompt_manes:    ok.. have you checked rar's benchmarks?   dunno, I've used .7z format and rar, at least .7z is comparable to .rar, I'm not sure is better, I've seen some .rar with decent compression, then again, keep in mind, that also depends on the source that's being compressed, if it has enough redundant data or not21:42
devsysMonkeyDust: yes I ran that, I did get some sendmail errors, not sure what that was about, but if I cat the resolv.conf I have the nameservers I added to base as well as the original ones (that were presumably hardcoded into resolv.conf)21:42

OerHeksknob, yes, 15.04 > 15.10 > 16.04 .. not directly22:02

knobPici, so I can go 15.10 to 16.04?22:03
bprompt_josuebarrios:    w0t?22:04
dunkdaftykins: seems that with Docker the apt-get update command doesn't save the caches to the image somehow, because by putting them in the same RUN line it seems to be fixed. I know that Docker basically pulls up the container from scratch between each line in the Dockerfile (hence if you do something like try to start a db it won't be running when you come22:04
dunkto your next command), but I didn't expect the apt-get update changes to get blown away. Ah well. Yet another sharp edge to cut yourself on with Docker.22:04

causativedaftykins, tried apt-get remove --purge firefox, then reinstalled, didn't work, so now I removed firefox and am also doing apt-get autoremove in case there is some problem in one of the supporting packages22:12
daftykinscausative: you can do 'purge' instead of 'remove --purge' ; sounds fair - anything else could be down to graphics / driver / DE quirks maybe22:14
daftykinsworth trying in the guest session22:14
causativedaftykins, there's another problem with firefox which might have something to do with unity configuration, namely when it opens the icon in the launcher is wrong - just the generic gray question mark with a box around it.  this despite the fact that there was ALSO a firefox icon in the launcher, which would launch firefox to the grey ? icon22:15
daftykinscausative: yeah i'd definitely log out, log into the guest session, then test firefox; see if it behaves normally there22:16
causativeyeah, autoremove did nothing either, after reinstalling it's the same as before... although I note that it didn't actually download any new packages when it reinstalled, so if there's some problem with a package maybe I need to remove the cached packages as well22:18
daftykinscausative: yep, when purging i always "sudo apt-get clean"22:20

BlastRedbashing-om . where are you.23:50
daftykinswe have volunteers that come and go, the best thing to do is to just ask again - hassling individual users isn't so effective if they're not here right now23:51
BlastRedOkay, generic question as im switching my other ubuntu hard drive into a computer23:51
bprompt_BlastRed:    they may well be here, but unless you state specifics, you wouldn't know23:51
BlastRedoky im sorry :323:51
BlastRedSo i have two laptops of a relative size23:51
BlastRedIf i replace one hard drive into the other, will that have all my files and data from the previous comp? and the OS?23:51
daftykinsyes because the hard disk is the storage device23:52
BlastRedThats awesome23:52
hyliandaftykins: i got 1 error, "unable to resolve host xubuntu"..??23:52
daftykinsbut only if it was on its' own, i.e. it wasn't a multiple drive system23:52
BlastRedits a problem with your internet hylian23:52
daftykinshylian: why are you trying to do anything online? chroot doesn't require this23:53
BlastRedive gotten that before, you probably want to check your ip23:53
hylianBlastRed: um, no it's not./23:53
daftykinsnot even close :)23:53
BlastRedReally? i had the same error "unable to resolve host" in a certain game, and i ended up fixing the localhost code or something23:53
BlastRedhaha... i know nothing; what i said never happened.23:54
daftykinsit's part of an ongoing support query, so you don't know the full story.23:54
daftykinshylian: so you just nede to be in a terminal right now, mounting your partitions and then chroot-ing into it - there's no need to be online at all - i don't know why you got that message23:54
daftykinsBlastRed: so if the hard disk was the only one in another PC, and has the full ubuntu installation on it... you can transplant the drive and boot up wherever; as long as there are no major hardware differences23:55
Jordan_UBlastRed: Yes. Depending on some important details though (proprietary drivers, and UEFI boot entries) you may have trouble booting from and running from the swapped drive though.23:55
hyliandaftykins: ok so i did chroot it, do i reboot now?23:56
BlastRedOne computer is compaq and one is DELL, wil that have any problem. Jordan_U ?23:56
daftykinshylian: no; because nothing has been done. if you "ls" do you see bin, dev, etc?23:56
hyliandaftykins: except, it did say it didn't know the host of xubuntu when running grub-install.23:56
BlastRedi just took off the top off the bottom of my lother laptop... which one is the hard drive xD23:56
BlastRedOh i see it...23:57
BlastRedits called a disk drie?23:57
BottomNotchI have a Lenovo thinkpad x61 tablet running trusty.  It has a serial touchscree that doesn't work.  I know that it uses serial port /dev/ttyS4 but the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touchscreen to not help.  Can anyone help me?23:57
Jordan_UBlastRed: The brand of computer tells me almost nothing about the important differences. Do you have any proprietary drivers installed for either machine? Is either machine UEFI based (as opposed to BIOS based)?23:57
hyliandaftykins: no, but this is the home folder. i did all the commands on that page, and only had an error at the very end with grub install.23:57
daftykinshylian: i said not to run that part.23:57
k1lBlastRed: please look into the make and models manual to find a howto for replacing a hdd.23:58
hyliandaftykins: oops, ok, well then i am chrooted, i believe.23:58
daftykinshylian: you were supposed to mount your / partition to /mnt or similar.23:58
BlastRedJordan_U: Both machienes are windows 7, they mostly have the same drivers. theres little to no difference23:58
daftykinshylian: no, not if this partition is your /home23:58
BlastRedTheyre both toshiba hard/disk drives23:58
hyliandaftykins: yep, everything you asked for mounted to /dev. cool trick23:58
Jordan_UBlastRed: That doesn't answer either of my questions unfortunately.23:59
daftykinsBlastRed: you're going to need to be in ##hardware to ask a lot of these questions, we help with Ubuntu - and whilst i personally love hardware, it's not on topic here.23:59
hyliandaftykins: ok, so now that I have a cd looking icon that says dev, now what do i do?23:59
