truexfan81for doing a release upgrade does it matter if all updates for the current version are installed or not?00:00

daftykinsif it's a VM, why upgrade at all? why not just grab the latest media?00:05
k1l_ki7mt: just look at ubuntu.com/usn how much issues there are which get fixed with udpates. i bet you will not fix something like CVE-2015-2925 on your own. so dont advise others to do so is fine.00:06
ubottuThe prepend_path function in fs/dcache.c in the Linux kernel before 4.2.4 does not properly handle rename actions inside a bind mount, which allows local users to bypass an intended container protection mechanism by renaming a directory, related to a "double-chroot attack."

The new version, Linux Mint 17.3 Beta, is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and contains mostly bug fixes and performance enhancements. The Driver Manager now reports installation errors and indicates whether available drivers are open source or not. The Update Manager attempts to locate fast mirrors to improve download times and multi-monitor00:42
brumsupport has been improved for the MATE desktop. It is also now possible to switch window managers on the fly from the MATE desktop. "In preparation for Linux Mint 17.3, a lot of work went into MATE 1.12. Most of the papercut issues identified in Linux Mint 17.2 were fixed and some of the new features implemented in Cinnamon were ported to MATE. The team focused on many little yet important issues which are key for a comfortable user exper00:42
brumience. MATE is now using the same `presence' interface as GNOME and Cinnamon. This means it now supports a very wide range of applications." The release notes for the beta are available in two separate posts for the Cinnamon and MATE editions.

daftykinsrightarmfast: no, and never do that - 777 is not safe01:13

daftykinsand also make sure you have no xorg.conf at all02:30
anheruu wot mate02:30

harduim<VictoriaXOXO> =/ Thx for the feedback. I'm also interested  in that02:41
AcerioUbuntu 14.10 cannot find the package packaging-dev, though the MOTU wiki for contributing says to install it. The package cannot be found. What do I do?02:42
L0iBurley: you can list down available drivers with 'ubuntu-drivers list' or if you're feeling luck, do 'ubuntu-drivers autoinstall'02:43
mint_can someone help me with partitoining?02:43
VictoriaXOXOharduim: Any idea where I would put "Option  "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }""?02:43
L0mint_: what are you using to partition? gparted? fdisk?02:44
iBurleyL0, well it installs through the GUI, and the install goes fine, but on reboot it won't boot. It was in the 15.10 release notes, AMD just didn't include support for kernel 4.2 before the release.02:44
iBurleyL0, but the fix was in staging or proposed or something, just not sure if anybody knows if it's in the official repos yet.02:45
VictoriaXOXOQ: How do I know which "xorg.conf" file my NVIDIA card/settings is currently using?02:45

daftykins1) nvidia driver versions, try them 2) disable the Xorg backing store - http://askubuntu.com/questions/450593/how-do-i-eliminate-screen-tearing-on-14-04-and-xbmc-with-nvidia-331 3) http://www.howtoeverything.net/linux/issues/finally-no-more-tearing-anywhere-mate-desktop-and-compiz has some suggestions;02:45

daftykinscknox: laptop?03:10
InumediaI need to install a package that only has releases for a version of Ubuntu back (15.04), is there a way to force apt to think it's on that version or an alternative way to install it and its dependencies?03:11
InumediaEr, specifically I'm trying to get cufflinks working on 15.10.03:11
cknoxdaftykins: yeah laptop03:12
InumediaOr if someone could assist in getting libboost 1.55 installed, that would fix the issue too.03:12
daftykinscknox: and your router doesn't let you use it via your external IP when home, huh?03:12
cknoxdaftykins: that's correct. So I had to build a DNS server for home03:13
cknoxalthough to be honest my laptop doesn't really leave the house much, but my phone does03:14
daftykinscknox: or you could've just entered the line into /etc/hosts when you're home to point the domain to the internal IP - or resolved NAT reflection on your router03:15
Inumediacknox: Try adding multiple A names to point to both your WAN IP and the IP hosting your services?03:15
InumediaEr, LAN IP hosting your services.03:15
cknoxInumedia: you mean on the external DNS server?03:15
daftykinsInumedia: so it'd have a one in two+ chance of working on every query? not very good03:15
cknoxI don't think they'll let me since it's a dynamic dns record03:16
InumediaIt'd be a bit of a stretch, but it's a round-robbin approach.03:16
daftykinsyeah that doesn't sound like the answer03:16
Inumediadaftykins: I believe it'll try both and the first to respond gets the connection03:16
daftykinsi don't think DNS resolution works that way03:16
InumediaNot sure, but it's worth  try imo.03:16
Inumediaer, worth a try03:16
daftykinscknox: there's always ##networking - i know your original query was reconfiguring your host DNS, which can be done, but i think this task can be tackled a lot better03:17
cknoxI thought this channel because this is the same setup we use at work with Windows clients and there's no issues03:18
cknoxI can easily enough work around the issue by manually editing resolve.conf, but that doesn't survive a reboot03:18
daftykinsthat statement doesn't track for me - but yeah, NAT reflection is the issue here, setting up an entire DNS server internally to combat this would not be my approach03:19
daftykinsyou can just purge resolvconf then hardcode it.03:19
daftykinspurge, reboot, edit, reboot - ensure it's still there03:19
Ben64or could put in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head03:20
daftykinsthat'd probably be the better idea :D03:20

daftykinsInumedia: i think you should just find a proper version in a PPA / compile from source03:30
GeoOerHeks: add a command03:30
InumediaI've banged my head against the wall trying to compile from source, and I haven't found a PPA containing cufflinks or libboost 1.55 for 15.10.03:30
OerHeksGeo, add a command to sudoers, explain?03:31
Ben64Inumedia: yeah looks like you'd have to compile it and any dependencies03:31
daftykinsInumedia: maybe ask for help with the compile then03:31
truexfan81lol i hate that situation03:32
InumediaThen I'll take another whack at compiling libboost from source and then come back.03:32
truexfan81when you have to compile the deps, often you find that the deps have deps that also have to be compiled03:32
OerHekstake a look @ https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sudoers03:32
Ben64Inumedia: alternatively, you could install 14.0403:32

Inumedialucas__: Reseat? Reseating is just generally unplugging and plugging it back in?03:34
truexfan81Inumedia: yeah best bet is to just keep compiling until you get it and its entire chain of deps installed and working03:34
truexfan81Inumedia: or just wait until you have physical access to the machine03:35
daftykinslucas__: ##hardware please, although you may use ubuntu that's not an OS query :)03:35
Inumediatruexfan81: Well, I forced the cufflinks install to pretend it worked with 15.10 and got the deb installed, but I'm missing the libboost dependencies.03:35
InumediaI had it working a few weeks ago, but I removed it and can't remember how I did it :p03:35
truexfan81Inumedia: i suggest compile libboost and its deps then problem will be solved03:36
InumediaHad to remove it, had to apt-get something and this was before I changed the deb to pretend it was 15.10 :D03:36
Inumediatruexfan81: Building now. :)03:36
truexfan81oh you have a deb package for it? i wouldn't do that unless you can make deb packages of the deps like libboost03:37
lucas__Inumedia: so just pop this bad boy open and basically "unplug/plug in/ the wireless modem03:37
InumediaI have a deb package for cufflinks, the source of this problem.03:37
truexfan81can you not compile cufflinks and make install it?03:38

truexfan81Inumedia: just follow the dep chain03:40

daftykinsdocmur: might be able to SSH tunnel with one instance, then SSH -X straight to the target host with a second - doubt that's the ideal method but it might work :)03:52

OerHeksthat nvidia geforce 840m should work with nvidia 337+  http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverresults.aspx/74888/en-us08:12
TJ-dionysus69: I have lots configured, but here's an example for github: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13342526/08:12
guiteOerHeks: I use 352, seems to be the recommended driver for it…08:13
TJ-guite: OK, so this is an Optimus/nvidia-prime issue08:13
guiteyes it is :)08:13
guitesorry it wasn’t clear08:13
TJ-guite: the first thing I'd recommend is ensuring you have the LTS Enablement kernel/Xorg stack installed08:14
TJ-!ltse | guite08:14
ubottuguite: The Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack08:14
dionysus69ssh-copy-id <username>@<host> the host part should be the ip of the client? so if my dev machine is a laptop and I change ip allot this will be close to useless?08:14
TJ-dionysus69: right; which is why we prefer using DNS hostnames and dynamic/multicast-DNS. Ubuntu by default installs m-DNS client/server avahi so if all systems on the network are using m-DNS you may be OK08:15
dionysus69ugh :D08:16
guiteTJ-: Didn’t finish to read yet but, is it a way to backport package from vivid ?08:17
guiteTJ-: if so, maybe I should better upgrade to vivid, don’t you think ?08:17
TJ-dionysus69: It depends where you're using ssh with @<ip>. A one-off for ssh-copy-id is no big deal, configuring an alias in .ssh/config is better, but using a hostname that can always be resolved to the correct IP address is obviously preferable. If your dev machine (the laptop) is the client this won't matter - only if the target you're connecting to keeps changing its IP address.08:18
TJ-guite: No, its not backports as such, it's specific up to date hardware support for devices that were produced after the LTS was released.08:19
TJ-guite: it just so happens those packages come from later releases, which makes sense, but they're part of the main archive.08:19
guiteTJ-: OK thanks ! Looks great08:20
guiteMight not solve my problems but anyway, still gives me hope :)08:20
TJ-guite: most times it solves this exact issue08:21
winem_morning, I'm running ubuntu 15.04 on my laptop and made updates yesterday evening. everything was fine until I shut the notebook down.  now, when I start it, I see the login screen but some icons (settings for example) are missing but the options (Gnome, Default, Ubuntu, etc.) appears if I move the mouse over it... I see the background screen for a few seconds after login before it logs out again08:23
winem_and I had no chance to enter the grub menu (holding shift during boot is still correct?!) or enter a shell...08:24
Kartagishow come my dd destroyed partition is showing 647G occupied?08:24
winem_do you have any idea how to rescue the system?08:24
TJ-winem_: Shift is correct; as long as you hold it down early enough08:24
winem_TJ-, I use Ubuntu with encrypted disks + swap08:24
TJ-winem_: That sounds like you've been hit by a relatively common issue that seems to affect Unity08:24
TJ-winem_: Same here; changes nothing about boot :)08:24
winem_but the fallback to the login screen also happens when I login with Gnome08:25
winem_TJ-, did you solve the issue yet?08:25
dionysus69TJ-: ok thanks, my host wont be changing ip so problem solved yay xD08:25
TJ-winem_: I don't use Gnome/Unity, but the issues we've dealt with seem to involve moving the $HOME/.config directory to a backup to remove some little understood config problem. But, before looking at that, check the Xorg server's logs in case its a 'simple' GPU driver issue. /var/log/Xorg.0.log08:26
TJ-Kartagis: if you pastebin some actual command results to illustrate we may be able to tell you; right now we could tell you 'because the Cat sat on the keyboard' and it'd make as much sense as anything else :)08:29
KartagisTJ-: http://termbin.com/gt8m08:30
winem_ok, let me test something08:30
TJ-Kartagis: looks like there's a valid file-system on /dev/sdb108:31
KartagisI used photorec to recover all my data but filenames are all messed up. can you recommend another solution?08:33
Kartagisfilenames are something f293494.txt08:33
winem_TJ-, I'm unable to open any terminal or my lovely terminator. after login, I have about 10 seconds to do something and then the login screen appears again08:33
TJ-Kartagis: If the directory inodes were lost then no, photorec names files arbitrarily08:33
TJ-winem_: Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get a real console, log-in there, work from the shell08:34
KartagisTJ-: any other tool?08:34
TJ-Kartagis: nope, if the superblocks were destroyed then short of manually locating and rebuilding the directory entries its not going to happen. Those entries were likely over-written08:35
winem_TJ-.... sorry... I'm so damn stupid... of course f1 to f7...08:35
winem_don't know how often I did it on servers but did not think on it regarding the current issue :D08:35
TJ-winem_: use 'pastebinit' to send logs etc.08:35
TJ-winem_: we all get tunnel vision at some point :)08:36
winem_thank you. I will try to solve the issue from the command line now :)08:36
maxtimboyo, simple thing, i'm sure. but there is a little red triangle that says the update info is out of date. happens every once in a while after i update. Can't get rid of it sometimes. what's the deal?08:37

norcSo. Why is add-apt-repository so hesistant to show me any error messages. I just spent the past hour trying to understand why I couldn't add a PPA, just to realize I have already added it.08:39
TJ-maxtimbo: usually due to not being able to fetch some package lists. Best to use the terminal shell and do "sudo apt update" and investigate the warnings, if any08:40
norc"Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:brightbox/ruby-ng'" is such a helpful error message. Tells me everything I need to know.... :(08:40

norcTJ-: Seriously though, sometimes you need to reinstall ca-certs, different times its a DNS issue, or your server time is not up to date, or your proxy returns an error...08:42

maxtimbonah, it's a few outdated ppa's, TJ-08:42
maxtimboi think i just need to scrap them08:42
TJ-norc: if you're having those kind of issues routinely there's something very wrong in the deployment08:43
TJ-norc: as the saying goes "PPAs are NOT supported" and for good reason08:44
OerHeksmaxtimbo, paste the errors on paste.ubuntu.com and have a look08:44
maxtimboOerHeks, http://paste.ubuntu.com/13342793/08:45
norcTJ-: It's a fair point. Though the ca-cert issues I get routinely with apt can give me headaches thoug.08:45
TJ-norc: CA certs? That's an X509 issue, unrelated to anything apt does08:46

norcTJ-: No I get these CA issues from time to time when installing standard packages with apt.08:48
TJ-nonedead: that's because /etc/resolv.conf is managed by resolvconf, and the user shouldn't touch it08:48

TJ-nonedead: As I said, we only provide support for Ubuntu in this channel08:53
nonedeadAlright, fine08:53
Viking667I have a bash program I previously started with a .desktop file. Now, I'm noticing it turns up in the process list as:  python3 /usr/bin/bash -x /home/viking/mycommand -s mycommandparams08:54
Viking667As you can imagine, not a lot happens. No gnome terminal...08:54
Viking667oops, sorry. My bad, I meant to type this:  /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/gnome-terminal -x /home/viking/bin/mycommand -s myparam-08:55
Viking667Is there something else I should be doing now I've upgraded to 15.04?08:56
winem_still stuck in the login loop....08:58
abdel_i can't install skype and I keep on getting this error: W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ vivid-security/main amd64 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_vivid-security_main_binary-amd64_Packages)08:58
pinPointcan I build a binary in ubuntu 14.04 and move it to ubuntu 12.04?08:59
winem_abdel_, probably, it's just a warning. check the sources lists in /etc/apt/ and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ for the entry09:00
TJ-winem_: did you pastebin the /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?09:00
abdel_whenever i do sudo apt-get install skpye09:00
abdel_it give me error09:00
TJ-abdel_: what error? and it is "skype" not "skpye" in case it is a simple typo09:00
ki7mtpinPoint, use pbuilder or cowbuilder for that, make things simple and all but gauntnesses correct package compatibility.09:01
NitishSo finally I am using irssc from windows os. Can anyone tell me that how can I open this in default windows cmd?09:01
abdel_E: Unable to locate package skype09:01
pinPointki7mt: what if I just used terminal, and make/gcc09:01
winem_Tj-, not yet. let me do it now09:02
ki7mtpinPoint, then you run the risk of lib / tool chain issues09:02
abdel_'I am using ubuntu 15.04, but having a difficult time installing skype, I have checked software center but its not there09:02
NitishHOw can I open irssi in my default windows os cmd?09:02
OerHeksabdel_, enable partner repository first, for that 3th party binairy blob09:02
TJ-abdel_: "apt-cache search -n skype" will list all candidate packages, but I think you need a 3rd party repository for Skype09:02
abdel_how do I do that Oerheks09:02
OerHeks!skype | abdel_09:03

pinPointki7mt: is there a way of me getting glibc 2.17 into ubuntu 12.04 without serious breakage?09:03
Viking667Nitish: That's not exactly a Ubuntu question, you realise.09:03
ki7mtpinPoint, why I recommended pbuilder is, it builds the package in a sanitary environment which is both version and arch specific.09:03
NitishViking667: oh ya..09:03
abdel_@Oerheks: how do you mean !skype | abdel_09:03
NitishViking667: I think I should go to #freenode.09:04
TJ-pinPoint: if a package is for 12.04, and the build host is 14.04, use a pbuilder/schroot/sbuild chroot 12.04 env to build the package09:04
NitishHow can I go one step back from here?09:04
pinPointit is not a package, rather a binary file09:04
Viking667Nitish: or you could also type /join #windows09:04
pinPointsomething i can throw inside /usr/sbin/09:04
TJ-pinPoint: right, so build it in a 12.04 chroot09:04
ki7mtpinPoint, There is always a way, and you cuse update-alternatives to run multiple tool chaines, but IMHO, it's not the best path, others may disagree.09:04
ki7mtcuse - could use09:05
TJ-pinPoint: use 'debootstrap' to create a simple buildd chroot for it09:05
OerHeksabdel, read the message from ubottu, is that so hard to understand?09:05
pinPointyeah i'm lost09:05
pinPointright now I'm getting this nasty error: /libressl-2.3.1/.openssl/lib/libcrypto.a(getentropy_linux.o): In function `getentropy_fallback':09:05
ki7mtTJ-, That what pbuilder / pbuilder-dist does, builds chroot  that is arch and version specific. debboostrap is used to create the base image.09:06
pinPointngnix+libressl builds properly on my 14.04 but moving to 12.04 with those ideas ^^^ just seems painful :/09:06
bp0how does one reinstall ubuntu but save users and passwords?09:07
TJ-ki7mt: correct, but pbuilder is for tailored for Debian package builds and that isn't what pinPoint wants here09:07

Viking667meanwhile, how do I create a .desktop file that calls gnome-terminal with my program as an arg, without it first calling python3 to execute gnome terminal?09:07
TJ-bp0: backup  /etc/group /etc/passwd /etc/shadow /etc/sudoers09:07
Viking667... something seems weird there.09:07
pinPointTJ-: ki7mt would moving to 14.04 be another solution?09:07
bp0TJ-, will there be any problem with the users that packages created?09:08
bp0if I replace those files in the new install09:08
Viking667those files should never GET replaced09:08
winem_TJ-, now, the login works but I have another issue. do you have one more second for me?09:09
ki7mtpinPoint, solution for what? I build packages for all the current Ubuntu releases, across i386,amd64, armhf and ppcel63, all using pbuilder, it's not just for Debian.09:09
Viking667... hang on, which files are you referring to, bp0?09:09
TJ-bp0: the uid/gids could end up being different but as long as you insert the backed-up files as soon as an ubuntu-minimal is in place, and do a sed search/replace to fix them up to match the new system, it will then work OK for subsequent package installs09:09
ki7mtwhoos ppc64el my bad09:09
TJ-someone's got a sticky bit09:09
Viking667Ah, my mistake. I'll do the "Okay, I'll shaddup" thing.09:09

cursesHi guys - I'm running a bunch of virtual Ubuntu servers and I'm looking to make them more secure. Would anyone be able to point me at some good resources for server security?09:10
ki7mtTJ-, Sure do.09:10
Viking667meh. I'll deal with this thing another time.09:11
TJ-pinPoint: maybe the minimal library versions required is the crux of the issue, and you'll end up in a 'dependency hell' due to that.09:11
Viking667Cheers, everyone. Have a good night/day/afternoon.09:11
TJ-winem_: what was the issue that prevented log-in? GPU driver?09:11
pinPointTJ-: I think it needs maybe glibc 2.1709:12
ki7mtLets see, thrid package, of section 2.1 -- ah yes, pbuilder: http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/getting-set-up.html09:12
pinPoint12.04 only maxes out at 2.1509:12
mallohplease help09:12
pinPointi haven't looked around for unofficial ppa for it09:12
abdel_i keep getting this: W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ vivid-security/main amd64 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_vivid-security_main_binary-amd64_Packages)09:12
pinPointki7mt: how much work is there to be had? lol09:13
TJ-pinPoint: an option for it is to install a 14.04 chroot on the 12.04 system and then you'll not have issues09:13
ki7mtpinPoint, FOr a personal, non-launchpad package, it's fairly simple.09:13
TJ-pinPoint: again, 'debootstrap' will help you there.09:13
bp0TJ-, so those files + home are all I need to preserve users into a different ubuntu install?09:13
=== vlt_ is now known as vlt
abdel_how do I get rid of this warning09:13
winem_I noticed that the dpkg has shown an error in the log. dpkg reconfigure did the trick. now I works when I boot an old kernel (3.19.0-22). when I just choose ubuntu I get the screen requesting the passphrase to decrypt my hdds but I can not enter anything. If I choose the latest kernel (3.19.0-33-generic) it hangs atfer Loading initial ramdisk for a few minutes now09:13
TJ-bp0: yes. /etc/group is the groups, /etc/passwd is the users, their shells and home directories, and /etc/shadow is the user encrypted passwords09:14
bp0TJ-, aright, thank you09:14
TJ-bp0: /etc/sudoers is the sudo config but that's usually standard unless you've customised it09:14
TJ-winem_: so you've got LUKS/dm-crypt root file-system?09:15
winem_only /home and /swap is encrypted09:15
TJ-winem_: that sounds like a 'Plymouth' splash screen issue and/or the wrong TTY being used for input. Which Ubuntu release is that on?09:16
TJ-winem_: OK, so not being unlocked during intialramfs then09:16
winem_and yes, I already assume a Plymouth issue09:16
TJ-winem_: Are you using systemd or Upstart for the init system?09:16
ki7mtpinPoint, But when your building on an differe arch  / version, that's where, as TJ- point out, chroot comes in, pbuilder ( my recommendation ) makes that whole process of building the package very easy.09:16
TJ-winem_: first thing I'd try is removing "splash" from the kernel command-line09:17
pinPointwell lets see. I have to build another 14.04 while I have a Vbox running of 14.04 while in win10. *head spins*09:17
TJ-winem_: 2nd is disabling GRUB graphical console so Linux uses pure text consoles during start-up09:17
pinPointi'll take down my notes for nginx+libressl and keep them on shelf for later when I upgrade to 14.04 from 12.0409:18
winem_systemd, TJ-09:18
winem_disabling GRUB graphical console is done by enabling GRUB_TERMINAL=console ?09:19
TJ-winem_: We had an issue recently sounds like yours; In it, the user couldn't enter their pass-phrase and it turned out - after a lot of diagnostics - that the wrong tty was being used for reading input (i.e. not the console that was being displayed). I seem to recall it was caused because the usual kernel command-line option "vt.handoff=7" had been removed09:20
TJ-winem_: correct09:20
winem_ok, but I could add the kernel option in the grub menu after pressing e, right?09:21
TJ-winem_: correct again :)09:21
ki7mtpinPoint, It's pretty easy .. well sort of, create your chroot: pbuilder-dist precise amd64 create  .. then build a widget: pbuilder-dist precise i386 ./*precise*.dsc09:21
ki7mtpinPoint, Obviously change amd64 to i386 or whatever the needed arch is09:23
winem_let me double-check it but it looks like removing splash from the command-line seemed to work09:24

_ACID_How is doing?09:26
lotuspsychje_ACID_: you joined an ubuntu support channel mate09:26
winem_ok. booting the latest kernel via recovery-mode -> entering the passphrase for home and choos resume normally works09:27
winem_but it does not work without the recovery mode or booting into the grub default. will try the other approaches09:28
TJ-winem_: does the 'default' command-line have vt.handoff=7 on it?09:28
ki7mtpinPoint, I gotta go now, as as there's a sticky bit problem, but I think you'll find, using sbuild, pbuilder or cowbuilder is good route to build a pkg on one version-arch for another version-arch.09:29
pinPointno. I think i will just move to 14.0409:30
pinPointi just finished another build on the vbox 14.04 and it was successful. :/09:30
ki7mtpinPoint, That is certainly an option :-)09:31

OerHeksbad advise, that trenta has its own issues.09:39
MollohUnfortunately in the channel no one09:40
ki7mtThat's may be a good reason to *not* use that distro.09:41
Mollohplease help me09:45
lotuspsychjeMolloh: make your life easy mate and install an ubuntu version from the topic09:45
OerHeksagain, that trenta has its own issues.09:46
lotuspsychjeMolloh: there are lots of wm's you can try on official ubuntu aswell, to make it look as trenta09:46
MollohSo I did not fix the problem with the resolution remains09:48
lotuspsychjeMolloh: please seek trenta help elsewhere09:52
lotuspsychjeMolloh: again, you can install themes on our official ubuntu, so its look clean like trenta09:52
MollohIt is based on Ubuntu, in support of Trent told me to contact the support for Ubuntu with my problem.09:54
lotuspsychjeMolloh: and that was wrong advise09:54
MollohThis is the same Ubuntu just another shell, and then the problem must be addressed as well as in ubuntu.Chto in such cases, as I have done in ubuntu?09:57

vapeI'm trying to get jetty running with an init script on Ubuntu 12.04. Using "service jetty run" does start it in the foreground as expected. "service jetty start" reports "FAILED", but actually it does start jetty and writes the pid file10:36
vapebut because it reports failed, I can't then stop the service, and my config management tooling thinks it failed10:37
EriC^^vape: try sudo service jetty restart10:37
vapeEriC^^: I can't even start it in the first place EriC^^10:37
vapeor rather, I can, but init thinks I can't10:38
EriC^^worth a shot10:38
vapeand it needs to work when the service starts on boot, cos the config management tool only has visibility at the service level10:38
vapethese are cattle not pets, I can't be sshing onto them10:38
EriC^^vape: try without using run first10:38
vapewell if I do "service jetty restart" it tries to stop jetty (the PID in the /var/run/jetty.pid isn't the actual PID of the process)10:39
vapeand then tries to start jetty, and reports FAILED again just like when I do start10:39
vapeThe only thing that works is "service jetty run" which doesn't fork to the background10:39
EriC^^vape: if you try start without run first does it work?10:39
vapeOK so right now, jetty isn't running. but there is a file /var/run/jetty.pid which contains a number10:40
vapeThe number doesn't correspond to any running process10:40
vapeif I do service jetty start it prints dots for a few seconds and then prints FAILED10:40

rpadovaniHey all :-) I'm on ubuntu 14.04 with all updates installed. Starting today, when I click on 'x' to close a window, it closes *all* instances of the program. Like, I open 2 terminals, I close one, both are closed - same with multiple firefox windows11:20
rpadovaniis it a known bug?11:20
winem_TJ-, I'm very confused.. it does not even accept usb drives for backups, etc... let me see the logs11:21
TJ-winem_: if there's a general hardware issue, check dmesg / kern.log. if device nodes aren't bein correctly populated that sounds like a udevd issue. Have you checked the root file-system etc. haven't run out of space of you're getting multiple 'weird' issues?11:22
L0hello. I have one thing to ask. It's about renaming network interface names. I know there is a file called 'iftab' under /etc, and i tried changing it, but seems like something is overwriting that change. anyone has idea?11:23
L0right now, my wireless interface name is ridiculus, 'wlp3s0'11:23
winem_ filesystem check on all partitions was successfully and dmesg looks fine. it fines the new usb drive and shows the right prodcut info11:23
winem_I would just have to make a backup of a few gb...11:24
L0it only happened when i install ubuntu 15.10, such thing didn't occur to me when upgrading from 14.10 to 151011:24
L0anyone got similar problem with network interface names?11:24
MonkeyDustL0  guess you have to rename you wireless network in the router ( or so)11:26
L0MonkeyDust: Uh, how is that related?11:27
L0MonkeyDust: it was my wireless adapter name, not the router's11:27
TJ-L0: "/etc/iftab" ?11:27
L0TJ-: Tried, being overwritten at boot11:27
L0and i tried adding network.rules file under /etc/udev/rules.d/, didn't work either11:28
TJ-L0: interface naming is done by Systemd, according to the predictable network interface name specification11:28
L0but shouldn't the custom network.rules file overwrite the naming convention?11:28
L0this is quite annoying, since i can't even remember that weird name, and it's hard to type too. wlan0 is much better11:30
TJ-L0: Ubuntu doesn't use /etc/iftab, and we don't have the ifrename tool either. Are you sure that's an ubuntu system?11:30
L0yes, i'm on ubuntu 15.10 and i can confirm i have iftab file11:30
TJ-L0: So am I, there's no package using ifrename or /etc/iftab11:31
TJ-L0: see http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames/11:31
L0i don't have ifrename but iftab is present11:31
L0TJ-: and the weird thing is when i change the name inside iftab and reboot, it revert back to original name inside that file again11:32
MonkeyDustL0  maybe because that iftab file is alien to ubuntu11:33

zolderHi, iwas installsting steam in ubuntu, but i got error You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:11:50
=== ron__ is now known as defcon6
zolderdo i need to do just apt-get install libc.so.6 ?11:50
noeliaMonkeyDust The output of "sudo apt update" is correct now (after disabling the ppa), but I still can't install wine11:51
TJ-zolder: last time we saw that, it turned out to be a false message, and due to a corrupted 0-length file in $HOME/.steam/11:51
zolderok TJ.11:52
zolderHow can i fix that?11:52
MonkeyDustnoelia  moment, i have something called 'fix packages'...11:53
TJ-zolder: The user renamed the steam directory with a back-up name and let steam re-install the files under $HOME11:53
noeliaMonkeyDust Ok, thank you :)11:53
zolderi cannot choose where steam is installed11:54
zolderit just goes..11:54
TJ-zolder: if the existing directory is $HOME/.steam, rename it to $HOME/.steam-backup and re-run steam. It should then write good files into a new $HOME/.steam11:55
MonkeyDustnoelia  picked this up in this channel ... save this as a simple text file, make executable and run it ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/13344428/11:55

zolderdo i have to rename it by terminal ? or can i do it in a filemanager>11:56

zolderi renamed the folder11:57
zoldersomething to do with unmet dependecies or something..11:58
TJ-zolder: OK, in which case put the renamed directory back to normal. You'll need to check with steam support. How did you install it?11:59
zolderthrough software manager11:59
zolderi will download installer from website and try that12:00
zolderBecause in  the software manager it say BUY too... wich is weird12:00
TJ-zolder: it looks like because of the mess that is the steam client config scripts, it doesn't correctly declare all its dependencies in the package.12:00
zolderi removed it now, and download from steam website12:01

TJ-zolder: so I'd recommend the "apt-get -f install" to clear any package problems, then you can correctly install steam12:08

mauihi guys, I'm trying to understand how to make a multiple bootable OS live usb pendrive only with bash commands. I know there are many softwares allowing you to do that, but I prefer to do it myself. For making a bootable pendrive with linux (any distro), one usually uses command "dd" etc. Is there a similar procedure? I searched it up for the past days but all I could find was "use this software, or this other one". Thanks in advance for whoever is going to help!13:08
YasuniHi Guys, i have a problem but can't figure it out.. i have a ubuntu server 14.04.3 on a vmware ESXI host, but for some reason the network stops working after a while. if i restart the network cards its fine for a few minuts but the its back. I have treid different Nic' s E1000 and VMXNET3 but no change. where do i need to start to troubleshoot this?13:09
EriC^^herrkin: type cat /etc/crypttab | nc termbin.co 999913:09
EriC^^herrkin: type cat /etc/crypttab | nc termbin.com 999913:09
EriC^^TJ-: ^13:10
YasuniI already looked at /var/log/syslog but no errors there, i have also installed vmware tools but that didn't make a difference, i have searched all over but can't find anything resemble my situation13:11
TJ-herrkin: as I thought. the entry is mssing the offset= parameter, which means the entire device is getting clobbered each time it is created at boot13:13
akikmaui: syslinux is probably where you want to start from13:14
herrkinalright. that seems so. what does offset do? its like a timeout parameter?13:14
mauiakik: Could you be more specific? thanks for answering13:14
akikmaui: i'm not sure if you want to code the boot manager yourself, but read up on syslinux13:16
MonkeyDustmaui  in a terminal, type   man syslinux13:17
akikmaui: also, isolinux13:17
mauiMonkeyDust, akik: so you're suggesting me to study syslinux and isolinux? I thought it would have been more a question of bootstrap and debootstrap13:18
bubblescommand to force to make new thumbnails?13:18
bubblesgot it, pressed f513:20

akikmaui: yes13:20
MonkeyDustbubbles  glad i could help13:20
mauiakik, yes what? study sys and iso? what about boot and deboot? thanks for answering though :)13:21
herrkinwhat should I do TJ- ?13:21
TJ-herrkin: no, it tells cryptsetup to start the encrypted block 'offset' sectors (512-byte blocks) into the raw device. That has the effect of avoiding over-writing an original swap partition metadata which has a UUID embedded. Then, the cryptstab should define the device by UUID=XXXX not by /dev/sda813:22
Yasunimaui: try to read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization i used this and made my very own live-usb with custom programs pre installed ( and remove de GUI )13:22
akikmaui: the answer yes was for your question about studying syslinux and isolinux. debootstrap is used to install ubuntu into a directory. i'm not sure if it even touches the boot loader settings per se13:22
herrkinyes TJ- you or EriC^^ told me to use /dev/sda8 instead of uuid because the swap didnt want to work13:23
mauiYasuni, thanks for answering but this is not what I'm asking: I don't care how they will "live boot". All I want is to put different .isos from different OS's all on the same bootable pendrive :)13:23
TJ-herrkin: right, because you need to use 'offset='13:23
mauiakik, ok...13:23
YasuniAaahh sorry mis understood.13:23

YasuniHi Guys, i have a problem but can't figure it out.. i have a ubuntu server 14.04.3 on a vmware ESXI host, but for some reason the network stops working after a while. if i restart the network cards its fine for a few minuts but the its back. I have treid different Nic' s E1000 and VMXNET3 but no change.  if i use a arp -a command or a tcpdump i regain network connectoin but after a few minuts its gone again.15:00

ZeD-hi, how do i configure the interval of how often 'apt-get update' runs ? or does it run every time i install a package16:02
ganymede_ZeD-: From the GUI you can load the ‘Software’ app and look in, I think the second tab.16:03
pjzZeD-: it doesn't run by itself, something must invoke it16:03
SeveasZeD-: it only runs when you run it :)16:03
pjzZeD-: update-manager or the like would be my strong suspicion; check their settings16:04
daftykinsyes it does - it runs when you use auto update, or to update the updates available in the MOTD on login16:04

I indeed made a free space when installing for a further Windows installation. However I can't see that partition, why ?16:18
adrian_1908p.s. `sudo apt-get install xorg-server/wily-proposed` is what I used, preceded by an apt-get update.16:18

sybaritenshould i use this line "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openconnect/daily/ubuntu trusty main" with add-apt-reposityry, or by manually adding to a conf file? The add-apt-repository examples i see are with different adresses16:31

sallu_daftykins, oh ok, but Hp have some kind of rather irritated hard coded path for efi allocation16:31
daftykinssallu_: normally those don't have to be fought with just to get the flash drive booted, however windows related entries such as fast boot and secure boot may need disabling for an ubuntu flash drive to start... this is all covered in the EFI link i already shared :)16:32

pjzbubbles: vlc plays it fine17:34
daftykinspjz: test the guest session, so as to avoid your user's chrome profile.17:34
joey_Thanks for all your help! I'm gonna go try this Ubuntu 10.10 theme thing17:34

Guest27250daftykins, tails is supported on a drive lol17:42

daftykinsGuest27250: just select manual partitioning in the installer, put no swap on the flash drive and be sure to select it as the device to put GRUB on17:44
vishapupdate-manager, sorry17:44
daftykinsvishap: no, -d is to move to the latest development release, don't do that :)17:44
daftykinsvishap: 14.04 is LTS, why does this person want to move to non-LTS?17:44
vishaphm, how to go to unicorn so that i can go to vivid later?17:45
vishaphe wants vivid17:45
Guest27250daftykins, thanks for you help but does ubiquity install a clean version on my disk or is it installing my already installed ubuntu on that?17:45

jayjoI want to scroll the whole way up18:58
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Uh. This stick is "new" as in "new for me" (from sister). GParted wants me to create a partition table(?) and gives me a list. What do I choose?18:58

YaiyanI'm installing kubuntu, and doing the partitioning19:54
juniorRubyistYaiyan are you doing dualboot?19:54
YaiyanI didn't touch anything on /dev/sdb in the dialog at all, but when I press "install now", it says the swap partition on sdb is being formatted19:55
YaiyanjuniorRubyist, well, after partitioning this it's somewhat more than dualboot, but yeah19:55
YaiyanIs it normal for it to be formatting swap on another disk, when I didn't change the settings for that at all?19:57
OerHeksYaiyan, if your story is true, sdb is unlogical20:01
renn0xtk9OerHeks nichomachus got it! thanks mate, surprisingly --us-keymap was not working but en_GB seems to do the job20:02
fwedhello everyone, I just installed the system and there is no 'additional drivers' there, therefore no wifi networks shown. I know this from earlier, but is this still common?20:03
compdocI think additional drivers is video card20:04
YaiyanOerHeks, sdb is one of the disk, 4 partitions+swap, so one is probably unlogical20:05
YaiyanIs there a way to check?20:05
fwedhow can I bring wifi nw back?20:06
Yaiyan*other disks20:06
akikYaiyan: not sure about a two disk setup but if i have a swap partition on /dev/sda during install and don't touch it, it will get used as swap20:09
Yaiyanakik, so it's nothing to be worried about?20:10
YaiyanPartitioning always makes me nervous..20:10
fwedI have no network and looking for terminal and why does the dash show me a bunch of trash including weather channel?20:10

OerHeksjnhghy, don't use the driver from the nvidia website, use the build-in driver tool21:22
BluesKajjnhghy, try sudo apt install lib32gcc121:22
Miron‎( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)21:22
BluesKajOerHeks, he's trying to install the nvidia-340 with apt21:23
geniiSounds like multiarch is missing or only set for 64bit21:23
OerHeksBluesKaj, if that gcc is missing, it looks like the update server used is not up-to-date, or he added 32 bit environment21:24

geniiI was going to try finding out what was using it with lsof first, but I guess that works21:33
jnhghygenii: apt-get update doesn't go throw ... it freezes but after trying to run it for a few times now it found and started downloading and installing the nvidia driver ...21:36
jnhghybut that one freezes too :))21:36

halexander9000Greetings. My apologies, but I'd very much appreciate it if someone could help me reinstall my graphics drivers on my original Ubuntu installation. I just bought an Nvidia graphics card, installed the drivers using this guide http://askubuntu.com/questions/149206/how-to-install-nvidia-run and since then I haven't been able to boot up neither with m22:11
halexander9000y integrated card or the one I bought :(22:11
halexander9000I'm using a usb stick right now.22:11
halexander9000On the ingrated graphics.22:11
=== max is now known as Guest32324
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Did you purge the old driver prior to installing the new Nvidia graphic's card ?22:19
halexander9000I have not22:19
halexander9000I can however purge it now, using the ctrl-alt-f122:20
halexander9000Then can I install it using this?22:20
Bashing-omhalexander9000: What was the old card ? so we know the command to purge that old driver .22:20
halexander9000I have the .run file22:20
halexander9000It's the integrated hd460022:21
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Generally speaking, installing a driver from OEM is the last resort . Drivers are available in our software repository .22:22
halexander9000Do I need to remove repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates22:22
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Intel provides us with the latest drivers . There is usaually nothing that needs/can be done oth Intel. Intel just works .22:23
=== olaf is now known as Guest15739
halexander9000I see.22:23
halexander9000Ok, so basically I need to do a "apt-get install intel-current" ?22:24
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Maintenance will be much easier if you install from repo . though PPA is also supported . 1st adviuse is yes .. ppa-purge ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates .22:24
halexander9000Or was it the xserver-xorg-video-intel22:25
halexander9000will ppa-purge.22:25
halexander9000Then shall I "apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel" ?22:25
Bashing-omhalexander9000: What release are you running ?22:26
halexander9000I don't know for sure if 14.04 or 14.10, since I'm not running it currently.22:26
halexander9000I'm using a live version from a usb right now.22:27
Bashing-omhalexander9000: 14.10 will be a problem as it is no longer supportd and repos are turned away .22:27
halexander9000I have access to my file-system, is there a way to check?22:28
=== Guest15739 is now known as olaf123
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Sure . What in the install is ' cat /etc/issue ' ?22:29

_unrealhello, I've lost my touch pad some how? not sure how22:36
Bashing-omhalexander9000: K; So we are back to what was originally . Us this machine of "optimus - hybrid graphics" originally, or are you choosing to go with Nvidia in lieu of Intel ?22:36
_unrealgoing into system/settings/mouse-touch pad show's mouse as being there and enabled as far as the touch pad goes but my touch pad is just not working22:37
_unrealany idea's on what I may do to solve this wierd issue22:37
halexander9000I wish to make the Nvidia function, but having the intel as a fall-back would be nice.22:37
Bashing-omhalexander9000: IF this is not "optimus" not likely to have both in the fly .22:39
halexander9000Not both at the same time.22:39
halexander9000But if one doesn't function, I'd like to be able to switch the card in bios.22:39
Bashing-omhalexander9000: That is doable in bios ( may have to move Nvidi's xorg.conf file out of the way ) .22:42

halexander9000Bashing-om: I'm back to my old desk-top, just the way I left it.22:59
Bashing-omLtL: 352 version : see : http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/95159/en-us .22:59
halexander9000Bashing-om: At least now I know how to return to the intel drivers.22:59
halexander9000Bashing-om: It works flawlessly.22:59
LtLBashing-om: ok, i do show that one in additional drivers, thanks23:00
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Let's male sure the system sees the Nvidia card ; ' lspci | grep "VGA\|3D" ' .23:00
Bashing-omLtL: Good deal .23:01
halexander9000Bashing-om: I get a " grep: Invalid back reference23:01

Bashing-omhalexander9000: Inecpected .. what about ' lspci -vnn | grep VGA -A 12 ' ?23:02
halexander9000Bashing-om: never mind, I ran it with just the "VGA" bit23:02
kama3halexander9000: wish you luck with that driver.. i have updated to that 352.63 (860m) on my 14.04 and after boot i'm entering "low graphics mode", X creates core dump with sigabrt. i have to go back to console and start manually lightdm23:03

halexander9000Bashing-om: So it would seem that it does see it.23:03
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Yeah .. that is waht we wanted to see . Driver is now installed and all is good ??23:03
LtLBashing-om: i'm using nouveau, but additional drivers says intel microcode code is in use, what do i do about that?23:03
halexander9000Bashing-om: I tried to remove the ppa, and it failed. I'm afraid to run the install nvidia-current now :(23:04
LtLBashing-om: use 352 and keep the intel microcode?23:04
Bashing-omLtL: 'Intel microcode' is firmware not a direct concern to the grahics driver in use .23:06
LtLBashing-om: yeah thats exactly what is says, so cool, thanks23:07
Bashing-omhalexander9000: "ppa-purge" just reverts to what is in the repo and then remove that source ! .23:07
halexander9000Bashing-om: In other words, I have to do "sudo add-apt-repository --remove ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates"23:09
TwentyTwentyis there a reason why I am seeing different values for the size of my hard drive from different programs?  Dolphin says I have 212GB of total space, GParted says I have 223GB of space in the partition, and I'm pretty sure this is a 256GB ssd.  What could be causing this?23:10
Bashing-omhalexander9000: IF things work as is .. leave well enough alone .. just be aware that the possibility of graphic's driver breakage in a kernel update exists .23:10
halexander9000Bashing-om, Done.23:11
halexander9000Bashing-om: I tested the graphics currently, and It's worse than my Intel.23:11
halexander9000Bashing-om, With minecraft23:11
compdocTwentyTwenty, ssds reserve a small amount of space for its own use. and it even helps if you leave a few gigs of space as un-partitioned23:12
halexander9000Bashing-om, Imagine how much of a performance decrease it would have to be to be felt in Minecraft.23:12
Bashing-omhalexander9000: You are too quick, or I am just too slow .. // so we are back to properly ppa-purge ( revert to repo driver0 purge what is now and install the nvidia driver ... no big deal .23:12
TwentyTwentycompdoc, how small?  Currently it looks like it's using 28GB if this is supposed to be a 240GB ssd23:13
halexander9000Bashing-om, from where? The original repos?23:13
compdocSome drive come with software that suggest about 10 gigs or so. Google 'over-provisioning'23:13
compdocTwentyTwenty ^23:13
TwentyTwentycompdoc, i'm fine with 10GB, but what about the other 18?23:14
TwentyTwentycompdoc, also, this must be something handled by the ubuntu installer automatically because I never deliberately set aside 28GB23:15
compdocI think all hard drives sold dont match the advertised size.23:15
TwentyTwentycompdoc, it's also not showing up as unpartioned space, it's just not showing up at all23:15
compdocsomething to do with how the size is measured23:15
TwentyTwentycompdoc, so you think the ssd size is really 223GB and the ubuntu installer automatically set aside 10GB for the ssd?23:16
halexander9000Bashing-om, I'm hesitant to do that again, even with the ppa removed :( Are you sure it's ok now?23:17
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Not knowing what has been done, or where you are .. I do suggest ' sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates ' as the 1st step. then comment out that PPA in the sources.list directory . then we purge all and (re-)install . that is what I think .23:18
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Note that I have repeatedly advised 'ppa-purge' .23:19
maszlois there any real side effects from disabling dns masq?23:19

maszlojust do not know if this will break other thing turning it off.  dont care if it asks the dns server each time23:22
TJ-maszlo: sounds like something was misconfigured, NM's dnsmasq should work fine in cooperation with a VPN if the network connections are correctly configured.23:23
halexander9000Bashing-om, Dare I do now the dreaded install Nvidia-current?23:23
maszloTJ-: i dont understand what i could have setup incorrectly i tried using the dhcp dns and manually setting them.  they never updated in the /etc/resolv.conf23:24
maszloit would always just show localhost, or
maszlothat interface order had tun* in it right behind the lo options.23:25
maszloi am talking about /etc/resolvconf/interface-order23:26
TJ-maszlo: /etc/resolv.conf is a link to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf. NM updates resolvconf's nameservers entry when it receives a DHCP option, or from its manual configuration. It operates a private instance of dnsmaws that it gives to resolvconf, listening on If you've got some VPN connection not managed by NM then its -up script updates may be replaced when NM brings up and interface23:27
Bashing-omhalexander9000: ' sudo service lightdm stop ; sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak ; sudo apt-get purge nvidia* ; sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 ; sudo nvidia-xconfig ' .. Rerboot and let's see .23:27
maszloso i should look at what is broken in vpnc?23:27
TJ-maszlo: if you want an NM connection to NOT apply DHCP options for DNS, in the NM connection change the method to "Automatic (Addresses Only)" so it doesn't use the DNS/gateway DHCP options23:28
maszloTJ-: but i do want it to use the dns for vpn and it was not showing up23:29
TJ-maszlo: if you use NM's network-manager-vpnc{,-gnome} then there won't be any conflicts23:29
maszloTJ-: thanks for the info23:31
