AlexQNow I run apt-get update and it got stuck on updating trying to connect to a server via IP6, while my ISP doesn't provide it xD ... Okay, recovered00:00
Bashing-omthe_count: Checking the new list .00:00
BottomNotchDaftykins: can I restore a backup from the command line?00:00
daftykinsBottomNotch: i don't know how you backed up00:00
BottomNotchI backup up from system settings in unity00:01
daftykinstelldrak: what are you doing to want sendmail on these hosts? running internal email?00:01
the_counttelldrak: What exactly is the issue?00:01
BottomNotchBacked up autocorrect :/00:01
daftykinsBottomNotch: i have no experience with that00:01
BottomNotchI'll Google it00:01
BottomNotchI should have never of purged unity00:02
BottomNotchLesson learned00:02
the_countdaftykins: What kind of issues does purging unity introduce00:02
BottomNotchIf I end up having to do a fresh install I think I'll try Linux mint, maybe my touchscreen will work.00:03
daftykinshmm, kind of irritating for you to try and learn via those already tasked with helping but...00:03
daftykinsBottomNotch: that'll be an even bigger mistake :)00:03
the_countBashing-om: Maybe I should restart, then repopulate that list... The results may be different/better00:03
daftykins1) installed xfce i think? 2) purged unity 3) they both share packages, so unity removal took out what xfce needed to run - leaving a hosed system00:03
BottomNotchIt was fine until I rebooted :/00:04
BottomNotchBut yeah exactly what happened00:04
daftykinsand *BANG* the desktop environment is gone!00:04
the_countdaftykins: oh, oops00:04
AlexQdaftykins: Why would purging one package remove it's dependencies that are also dependencies of a different package?00:05
the_countdaftykins, how do you make you're *BAND* think?00:05
BottomNotchI'm just gonna try to install lxde00:05
Bashing-omthe_count: That ouput is the same as the 1st .. agreed .. restart the system and let's get a new look .00:05
daftykinsthe_count: sorry this isn't IRC school00:05
the_countdaftykins: I think I accedentally descovered it00:05
daftykinsAlexQ: all we know is it broke, i care not the why right now.00:05
the_countBAshing-om: Ok, see you in a bit00:06
Decco848its often there is not change to exsisting files in use too other packages, If not the volume managment doesnt htink we got to much harddrive space00:06

BottomNotchWell thanks for all your help daftykins00:06
daftykinsnp, we tried00:07
AlexQWell, I purged that Intel GPU driver and now I have 2:2.99.917+git20150808-0ubuntu4. So apparently it was from that ppa00:07
the_countdaftykins: Point taken00:07
the_countBashing-om: And, restarted, the kernel list is definantly shorter, but not as short as one world think, repopulating list00:08
AlexQI'd like to replace all packages that came from that ppu with Ubuntu ones, but that command ppa-purge doesn't find the ppu00:08
AlexQprobably gone after upgrade00:08
AlexQwhat to do?00:08
BottomNotchDafttkins: well I will try Linux mint if I need to do a fresh install, I really want a working touchscreen00:08
daftykinsBottomNotch: alright, just know you can't get any help with Mint here00:09
the_countBashing-om: I think this list may look the same as well: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13379098/00:09
BottomNotchDaftykins: I know00:09
Bashing-omthe_count: K; lookin.. lemme clear the board and we start all over ..00:09
the_countbashing-om: I will the same here as well00:10
AlexQI'll try to reboot after purging & installing that Intel GPU driver... Although not optimistic at all00:10
BottomNotchDaftykins: well I'm up and running with lxde00:10
Bashing-omthe_count: OK, show me what results ' sudo dpkg -P linux-image-3.16.0-46-generic ' .00:11
BottomNotchTo bad I couldn't get xfce working00:12
daftykinsprobably something in there broken *shrug*00:12

the_countBashing-om: Results look the same as previous00:15
VictoriaXOXOQ: That list of [OK] and [FAIL] while shutting down. Can I view it right now while the system is on?00:16
Bashing-omthe_count: Oh I am getting the idea of what is going on . do ' sudo dpkg -P linux-headers-3.16.0-46 ' .00:17
truexfan81yum can be configured to limit the number of old kernels the system keeps before it auto removes them, does apt have anything like that?00:17
VictoriaXOXOtruexfan81: Can you read this? Have I been muted? :(00:17
truexfan81VictoriaXOXO: you are not muted :)00:17
Decco848To share, ive read articles of Drive mounting problems in USB Distros To know the parameters are undefined and nor reachable or allocative is Beyond me00:17

VictoriaXOXOtruexfan81: Wooooo.00:18
SupaYoshihey how do i add a br0, that asks for a second dhcp lease of my router?00:18
SupaYoshiI have a ubuntu server, trying to setup a virtualmachine and I want the br0 to receive an IP from the router.00:19
SupaYoshiI tried doing this, but that gave it the same IP as the eth0. and that doesn't look healthy00:19
the_countBashing-om: Here were the results: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13379481/00:19
EriC^^truexfan81: there's a script that checks that, you could probably modify it00:19
Bashing-omthe_count: Our former dpkg -P commands did complete, what we have now is the results of incomplete mass removals .. We will get caught up here in a bit .. now : ' sudo dpkg -P linux-signed-image-3.16.0-46-generic ' .00:19
Decco848Formatting by disc is harder,  esp' Without a bootable CDROM00:20
truexfan81EriC^^: in this case i only have 2 kernels installed but the new one is working nicely, so no reason i can think of to keep the old one00:20
daftykinsSupaYoshi: not how it works at all00:20
daftykinsSupaYoshi: let the VM get its' own via bridging.00:20
the_countBashing-om: Ok, and my virtual desktops aren't around any more, thought I might point that out00:20
the_countBashing-om: Purged succesfully00:20
SupaYoshidaftykins, i am creating a vm with kvm.00:21
SupaYoshiI need to specify which bridge device to use00:21
Decco848Setting jumpers and defining IDE on older machines is complicated, and Wondering why you cant boot from img is completly triffling.00:21

daftykinsSupaYoshi: it's probably that you don't have a br0 yet because you've not created one by installing what i mentioned :)00:30
the_countBashing-om: Ok, good00:30
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: /var/log/boot.log ?00:30
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: I'll look at it!00:31
SupaYoshii have bridge-utils installed00:31
dengxinjunWhere's you doing?00:31
daftykinsSupaYoshi: right but that doesn't magically create you a br000:31
daftykinsdengxinjun: ubuntu support questions only00:31
dengxinjunwhat's you doing?00:31
SupaYoshidaftykins, do i need to put something in networking?00:32
daftykinsright so the interface is called virbr000:32
SupaYoshino thats from virtualbox.00:32
SupaYoshiI was using that with virtualbox.00:32
daftykinsSupaYoshi: what's the end goal here, what is this VM going to do...00:32
SupaYoshiI want another bridge.00:32
SupaYoshiThe vm is going to run a freepbx distro.00:32
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: Weird. I'm sure I saw at least one (1) [FAIL] there.00:33
SupaYoshiand i want it to access my lan. So i want it to be bridged with my lan.00:33
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: on shutdown maybe, but that doesn't remain visible now...00:33
SupaYoshidaftykins, so what do i do to create br0?00:33
Bashing-omthe_count: Next is same for the headers ' sudo dpkg -P linux-headers-3.16.0-{50,51,52,53}-generic '.00:33
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: Dang. How do I catch it?00:33
daftykinsSupaYoshi: so with virtualbox networking it should've been easy enough to get that VM to have an IP on your real LAN00:33
SupaYoshino i am using kvm for this vm00:33
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: pass.00:34
SupaYoshiim not using virtualbox for this.00:34
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: You pass on that question?00:34
daftykinsSupaYoshi: ugh, i think you're making life harder for yourself when you don't have the experience with any of these.00:34
daftykinsanyway my battery is about to go so i think i'm out :)00:34
SupaYoshiI have used br0 before on something else.00:34
SupaYoshiI just want to learn it.00:34
daftykinsfind a guide then perhaps00:34
SupaYoshiOkay bye00:34
daftykinsor ask in ##networking00:34
daftykinsbut i can tell you you're going about that task in a pretty insane way00:35
SchrodingersScatI keep getting connection errors with my reverse tunnel, http://paste.debian.net/334492 it eventually connects, just takes it a minute.  If I don't use it when it does connect, it seems to time out.  How do I troubleshoot this further?00:36
the_countBashing-om: Those aren't installed as well00:36
VictoriaXOXOQ: That list of [OK] and [FAIL] while shutting down. Can I view it right now while the system is on?00:37
SupaYoshihelp i just typed this, brctl addif br0 eth0, how can I undo this command?00:38
Bashing-omthe_count: My bad again .. I am rattled and not think'n things through .. do ' sudo dpkg -P linux-headers-3.16.0-{50,51,52,53} ' // no generic this time !00:39
the_countBashing-om: What is ' generic ' for?00:40
SchrodingersScat!man | SupaYoshi, try man brctl, if there's an addif, there may be a rmif or delif somewhere.00:40
ubottuSupaYoshi, try man brctl, if there's an addif, there may be a rmif or delif somewhere.: The "man" command brings up the Linux manual pages for the command you're interested in. Try "man intro" at the  command line, or see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal | Manpages online: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/00:40
Bashing-omthe_count: Now the final in this series ' sudo dpkg -P linux-image-extra-3.16.0-{50,51,52,53}-generic ' .00:41
the_countBashing-om: Done00:42
SupaYoshiokay fixed00:42
Bashing-omthe_count: There are several packages required for each kernel .. -generic is one of the three .00:42
SupaYoshianyone an idea what i have to do?00:42
SupaYoshiI want to bridge eth0 with br000:42
SupaYoshiso br0 gets an IP from the dhcp server too.00:43
the_countBashing-om: I see. Shall I restart again, or is there more to remove?00:43
truexfan81EriC^^: you are right, i could remove it very easily :-)00:43
Bashing-omthe_count: Gimme a tic .. as now we remove the old 3.19 kernel series .00:44
the_countBashing-om: Got it00:45
VictoriaXOXOQ: That list of [OK] and [FAIL] while shutting down. Can I view it right now while the system is on?00:47

k1l_VictoriaXOXO: see system log .0 or .1 in /var/log00:49
the_countBashing-om: You added an extra comma again00:50
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Thanks. But can you give me the full names? :P00:51
the_countBashing-om: And, are those generic?00:51
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Oh, wait. Maybe I can find them.00:51
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Is it called "syslog"?00:51
Bashing-omthe_count: Yikes .. teach me to slow down with my edits ! ..  ' apt-get purge linux-image-{26,28,30,31} ' now does that run ?00:51
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: I can't find any "[OK]" or "[FAIL]" in there. :(00:53
the_countBashing-om: You also forgot the beginning of the kernel release numbers... Not sure which ones you are on currently00:53
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: they get recyled on every reboot. so look into the .0 or .100:53
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: the things you see is dmesg, but since systemd is used that is not saved anymore.00:54
Bashing-omthe_count: I did it once more ! yuk .. should be ' apt-get purge linux-image-{26,28,30,31}-generic ' . Triple checked and now looks correct !00:54
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Gosh dang it. I might have to record my screen while the PC shuts down. XD00:54
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: i would not worry too much about that if it shuts down fine00:55
the_countBashing-om: You got one extra .0 in there00:55
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: I'm an expert at worrying. I just want to know what that one or two [FAIL] line(s) points to.00:55

lotuspsychjeGuy1524: did you install nvidia-prime?00:59
the_countBashing-om: And, you deserve an upadate to this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13380434/ It might make it a bit easier01:00
Nyteraxk1l_, i do that but the generic kernels are still there, while i use lowlatency01:00
Guy1524i think so let me check01:01
k1l_Nyterax: then sudo apt-get remove linux-generic && sudo apt-get autoremove01:01
Nyteraxk1l_, this is my /boot/ http://pastebin.com/gkCXkewB what can i remove safely?01:03
k1l_Nyterax: you need to remove the metapackage like i told.01:03
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: wich graphics driver do you have active right now?01:03
k1l_Nyterax: but you only have a 3.13 lowlatency kernel there01:03
k1l_Nyterax: sorry, scratch that.01:04
k1l_Nyterax: just remove the linux-generic. that will drop the generic kernels01:04
Bashing-omthe_count: Moving on along ' apt-get purge linux-headers-3.19.0-{26,28,30,31}-generic ; apt-get purge linux-headers-3.19.0-{26,28,30,31} '. One to go !01:04
Nyteraxpackage 'linux-generic' is not installed, so not removed01:05
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: you can find the list @ additional drivers (hardware icon)01:06
the_countBashing-om: I'm going to have to restart before I do that... The lock ile could not be opened... And another windows said that I needed to restart01:07
Guy1524oh sorry was part of another chat in #linux01:08
Guy1524I have 352 right now01:08
the_countBashing-om: Is that fine?01:09
Guy1524basically they had no idea what was going on and I am reinstalling, downloading the iso right now01:09
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: try 340 or 346 perhaps, and enable performance mode in nvidia-settings01:09
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: iso?01:09
Bashing-omthe_count: Preseed with 'sudo" .. as all we have ' sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.19.0-{26,28,30,31}-generic ; sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.19.0-{26,28,30,31} ' // that is the "lock file" .01:09
Guy1524ok, but when I do that it just resets01:09
Guy1524for reinstalling ubuntu01:09
the_countBashing-om: I did that with sudo01:09
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: you dont need to reinstall mate, just right combination card/driver01:09
Guy1524ok, well it was working before but when i installed bumblebee it screwed everything up01:10
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: bumblebee is outdated01:10
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: use nvidia-prime instead01:10
Guy1524just uninstalled bumblebee01:10
the_countBashing-om: Can that be unlocked, or will I have to reboot?01:10
Nyteraxk1l_, should i remove 'linux-generic-lts-vivid'?01:10
Guy1524but the problem persists i think01:10
Bashing-omthe_count: Then, is there another instance of the package manager running ? as only one can run at a time ; so dpkg os "locked" .. give time for any other package manager to complete befire beginning another instance .01:11
the_countBashing-om: Don;t want to do anything that digs the hole even deeper01:11
lotuspsychjeGuy1524: choose another driver/reboot/enable performance mode in nvidia-settings01:11

the_countBashing-om: Ok01:29

Bashing-omthe_count: OK, remove the ' sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/3.19.0-26-generic  ' .02:09
TJ-dcope: Now, on the target 12.04, run "sudo tcpdump -ni eth0 icmp". Then on the other PC start the ping. Observe if the 12.04 PC always sends out an ICMP reply for each ICMP request02:10

OerHeks"Bluetooth doesn't work; Power management issues (the battery performance isn't great)" no02:11
TJ-dcope: "never had these issues on an old router" ... does that imply you've recently changed a router that sits between these PCs?02:12
dcopeTJ-: yes, that is correct.02:12
ryao-phoneOerHeks: I wish there was more explicit information.02:12
dcopei don't know why the new router would randomly cause intermitent issues though02:12
the_countBashing-om: I might have missed a message you sent withing the last 10 minutes02:13
TJ-dcope: "aha!" Then it would suggest that router is most likely the problem. Continue with the 'tcpdump' analysis as I recommended, so you can find out if the router is failing to pass on the ICMP request to the 12.04 PC, or whether the PC receives it, replies, but the router doesn't pass the reply to the source PC.02:13
the_countBashing-om: I was disconnected temporarily02:13
TJ-dcope: But either way, assuming the 12.04 PC is behaving correctly, you need to investigate the router02:14
Bashing-omthe_count: Are we caught up ? ready to see if all our work is fruitful ?02:14
dcopeTJ-: indeed. the 12.04 PC is sending replies right now02:14

If you can prove (with tcpdump on both source and target PC) that ICMP packets (and possibly other packets - UDP, TCP) are being dropped, then you'll need to investigate the router itself. there might be some rate-limiting Anti-DDoS rules in its firewall causing that for example02:22

Bashing-omVictoriaXOXO: ' sudo find / -type f -size +1G -exec du -h {} \; 2>/dev/null | sort -hr | head -n 10 ' which will search the whole filesystem for files bigger than 1G and then sort them and print the 10 largest ones (you can adjust the '1G' and the ' -n 10' if that's not granular enough) - you can exclude mounted filesystems with '-xdev' or a suitable '-prune' if you have a more complicated multi - partition filesystem .03:30

daftykinsreboot has nothing to do with installing this metapackage04:20
AlexQI am running another Ubuntu installation on my Laptop, just wanted to check if package is there without rebooting04:21
AlexQto the other installation I have issues with04:21
daftykinsso you have two side by side?04:22
trustisimportanthey guys, I have a question, is ubtuntu really more safe than windows, in terms of backdoors, etc?04:22
TJ-AlexQ: yes, a chroot is sufficient to check is it is installed04:22
daftykinstrustisimportant: that's not a support question technically, you could talk about Linux in general vs. Windows in ##linux04:22
TJ-trustisimportant: I'd worry more about front-doors generally :)04:22
AlexQyes, it isn't there04:22
OerHekstrustisimportant, ubuntu has no backdoors, not even windows.04:23

TJ-centaur5: right, and did you configure a manual DNS server IP address there?05:17
centaur5TJ-, yep exact same DNS server on both machines but the desktop doesn't lookup.05:17
TJ-centaur5: first thing is to ensure you've not made a silly typo in the edit box :) 2nd is to review /var/log/syslog where NM reports very verbosely when its configuring an interface.05:18
curtis__screw this05:18
dengxinjunthis is a book05:19
centaur5TJ-, triple checked digits and even rebooted with saved settings.  I'll check the logs real quick.05:19
TJ-centaur5: the way it works is NM controls a private instance of dnsmasq, the caching DNS server, which listens on NM sends the configured DNS server IP address to dnsmasq over DBus when the connection is activated05:19
dengxinjunI much do it05:19
TJ-centaur5: check that this is a sym-link: "ls -l /etc/resolv.conf" should be a pointer to "../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf"05:19
TJ-centaur5: also, check the content of "/etc/resolv.conf" - the target file should contain "nameserver"05:20
centaur5TJ-, no symlink exists and the DNS in resolv is the previous router05:21
dengxinjunthe ubuntu very ..........05:22

SeriouslyLaughAlexQ try to post a snippet of the exact errors06:06
spilt_milkwhat's up my ubuntoonians?06:07
AlexQ"System problem detected" appearing, which can't be true as they are all about a package "linux-image..(previous version that was problematic)"... Basically the messages that were appearing before I fixed the problem of missing linux-generic after upgrade from 15.04 to 15.10. So this looks like old messages appearing06:08
jnesselrspilt_milk: Trying to install ubuntu on an old mac mini. Pulling my hair out. The usual.06:08
thoughtful_gobliThanks that was the one I was following. I have made a copy of /etc/apt/sources.list and run the "sudo apt-get clean" and "sudo apt-get autoclean" command but still have the same issue.06:08
thoughtful_gobliif i attempt to install sudo apt-get -f install fuse-utils I get a more specific error: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/64f16339a4c0c3053fc906:08
SeriouslyLaughAlexQ run sudo rm /var/crash/*06:08
AlexQSeriouslyLaugh: oo, yeah, I've been looking for that, but thought it was inside /var/log06:09
jnesselrSo why does the ubuntu server iso keep trying to check for the cd-rom? It's not running off of a cd-rom.06:10
SeriouslyLaughthoughtful_gobli you may have to purge exfat and reinstall using the PPA in the latest link i sent06:10
SeriouslyLaughrun sudo apt-get purge fuse-exfat exfat-utils06:10
AlexQSeriouslyLaugh: Thanks06:11
jnesselrIt's starting to get... irritating.06:11
wmorrijnesselr, are you talking about when it does a hardware check?06:11
thoughtful_gobliIt looks like they have never been installed: "Package fuse-exfat is not installed, so not removed, Package exfat-utils is not installed, so not removed'06:11
jnesselrwmorri: When I'm trying to install, yes. I think it's looking for the install media.06:12
SeriouslyLaughthe run sudo apt-get clean06:12
SeriouslyLaughthen sudo apt-get autoremove06:12
jnesselr"Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. This probably means that the CD-ROM was not in the drive. If so you can insert it and try again."06:12
jnesselrBut I'm not booting from the CD drive.06:13
jnesselrAnd when I try to mount /dev/sdb3 (the disk I put the installer on) onto /cdrom, it tells me that it's an Invalid Argument06:14
SeriouslyLaughthen install the ppa; sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat06:14
SeriouslyLaughthen run sudo apt-get update06:14
SeriouslyLaughthen run sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat exfat-utils06:14
SeriouslyLaughAlexQ sure thing06:14
baiterif you are running from cd rom, then you don't need to mount it06:15
wmorrijnesselr, this seems to be an issue, I am looking for a good solution.06:15
baiterit's already mounted, hence you can boot from it06:15
SeriouslyLaughok then just add the PPA above, update, and install that way06:15
jnesselrbaiter: Sure, but this computer no longer has a functioning CD-ROM drive.06:15
TJ-jnesselr: that suggests the /etc/apt/sources.list has the original DVD/ISO archive entry not commented out06:15
jnesselrTJ-: What, on the ramdisk that's loaded right now?06:16
baiteryou are doing some strange stuff06:16
baiterwhy don't you just install it like normal people?06:16
TJ-jnesselr: check /etc/apt/sources.list, see if it has an "deb cdrom: ..." entry06:16
AlexQnight night'06:17
jnesselrTJ-: It's a ramdisk. There's literally no /etc/apt folder.06:17
TJ-jnesselr: otherwise, its another issue, which is the mounting of the LIVE ISO image to /cdrom/06:17
baiter... what's a ramdisk?06:17
jnesselrbaiter: It's not my fault I can't burn a CD and try it in this drive.06:17
TJ-jnesselr: the live env still has all the /etc/ files, its unpacked from a squashfs file system06:17
baiteryou don't need a cd06:18
baiterto install it06:18
baiteryou can install from usb06:18
wmorriTJ-, I think i found a solution, but I haven't had this problem so I don't know if it works. http://askubuntu.com/questions/593002/fail-to-install-ubuntu-server-14-04-64bit-lts-from-usb-drive06:18
jnesselrbaiter: Which is where I'm at now.06:18
jnesselrWhich is what's causing this error.06:18
baiterisn't there an option to install?06:19
TJ-baiter: the actual device doesn't matter; the hybrid ISO images are designed to work as if they were loaded from a DVD even if they start from a USB hard disk emulation06:19
jnesselrbaiter: Yes. I hit install, go through the normal prompts, set up keyboard, etc. It then fails to detect the CD-ROM for the install media06:20
TJ-jnesselr: did you try the 'switch USB ports' trick so the device is re-mounted ?06:20
baiterso can't you skip it?06:20
TJ-baiter: no; it's a major fault. The ISO image disappears06:21
jnesselrTJ-: yes06:21
TJ-I used to see this a lot with SCSI-attached CD/DVD drives on servers. The installer expects them to be on ATA and if libata isn't involved, the device name isn't what the installer expects06:22

bindiare there any problems to be expected if I want to dualboot ubuntu with win10 and bitlocker on a fakeraid? :-)06:26
latrodectusbindi: so long as you partition your drive correctly i see no problems06:26
bindifakeraid is kinda hardware raid but its software raid anyway, you know, motherboard raid06:27
latrodectus!partition | bindi06:27
ubottubindi: For help with partitioning a new install see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PartitioningSchemes l - For partitioning programs see !GParted, or !PartitionManager (!Kubuntu 9.04 and up) - Other partitioning topics include !fstab !home and !swap06:27
bindii know how to partition things but last time i installed on a fakeraid gparted showed everything 4 times (i have 4 disks in a raid0) but i got it installed anyway :P06:27
latrodectuswell it probabily didn't register as one disk06:28
OerHeksusually bitlocker takes the whole drive..06:28
jnesselrBitLocker can get really weird with ubuntu systems.06:28
bindiI've shrunk the partition succesfully already06:28
latrodectusOerHeks: can't you have bitlocker take a partition06:28
bindiI would think that the free space wouldnt be encrypted.. that would be silly (or would it?)06:29
OerHeksbindi, one way to find out, boot the iso in live mode and see06:29
latrodectusbindi: it wouldn't be silly06:30
TJ-bindi: It depends on the fakeraid, GRUB boot-loader won't be able to use it, but the OS should do via either mdraid or dmraid06:31
latrodectusso long as you keep your secure shit on your secured drive, i see no problems with not using the full drive06:31
TJ-bindi: you'll need a separate device for GRUB to boot from06:32
bindii've installed ubuntu on the same fakeraid before though and it booted06:32
TJ-bindi: also, 4 drives in RADID-0 is a recipe for disaster06:32
bindi14.04 had some trouble with grub installation but i got it with fixboot or something, 15.04 did it on its own06:33
bindino other boot devices in the system and it worked :P06:33
bindiTJ-: they're SSDs06:33
jnesselrSo just an update, I'm trying something a little weird. I pushed the install media on the internal sata and I'm also pushing it to the external drive. Theoretically, I should be able to mount the iso from one onto the ram disk for the other.06:34
jnesselrwhere it's expected the cdrom that is06:34
TJ-bindi: that was luck :) ... RAID-0 (striping) means the first disk of the array must NOT store its fakeraid metadata at the beginning of the disk(s), and the partitioning must leave space for GRUB to install its core.img. GRUB will depend on the OROM of the FakeRAID controller for BIOS boot-time services, so it can only start in biosdisk mode, not nativedisk06:34
bXpejuh ngasu06:35
bXyou stupid06:35
jnesselrwell that was weird.06:35
bindiTJ-: what was luck exactly? :o06:36
TJ-bindi: GRUB often cannot find its core.img, or its root file-system, when fakeRAID is involved and its not a simple RAID-1 mirror config06:36
slackingbX#knapa bro06:36
bindiTJ-: right06:37
jnesselrSo, final solution for those curious: dd the iso to both the internal hard disk on a partion instead of the full disk, so the EFI stuff still plays nice, as well as to a usb disk. Then mount the usb disk to /cdrom through fstab. Profit. Maybe. Still trying to do the install. At least it recognizes the disk at this point.06:43

ubuntu037ok great, one second then!09:02
bekksBEFORE you do:09:02
ubuntu037to late haha09:02
bekksYou should slow down.09:02
bekksBecause you didnt do what you were told to do: investigate /proc/interrupts09:02
bekksAfter rebooting, its pointless to do that.09:02
ubuntu037I pasted it09:02
TJ-ubuntu037: also, what's the current "uptime" - so I can get an idea of how long it took achieve those totals09:03
TJ-ubuntu037: it's fine; reboot is good, no point diagnosing on an old kernel version09:03
ubuntu037Uptime was about 4 hours09:03
ubuntu037I installed the system yesterday about this time...09:03
TJ-ubuntu037: right, so the LOC interrupt totals were quite high for that09:03

TJ-oh, maybe not so bad then!09:04
TJ-CPU-local interrupts09:04
TJ-when the LAPIC fires (Local Advanced Programmable Interrupt Timer)09:04
ubuntu037when the machine boots the load is low, perhaps 0.209:05
ubuntu037at first I thought it was top/htop reporting the wrong information or adding 1.00 to the correct number09:05
TJ-ubuntu037: generally the load average is due to internal kernel waiting, so it doesn't show up in any kind of process or I/O (disk, network) anaylsis.09:05
bekksEven 0.2 is quite high for an idling machine :)09:06
ubuntu037this is what I thought, the machine is replacing an older machine with a lesser CPU, no SSD's and Less RAM and that idles at 0.109:06
ubuntu037+ and it has a little traffic on it09:06
TJ-ubuntu037: it's not abnormal on a multi-core system like that to see a high load average09:07
bekksSounds like the old machine would have been sufficient :)09:07
TJ-ubuntu037: I've seen quite a few E5-1650s recently with the same09:08
ubuntu037the strange thing is that we have an identical machine (in terms of hardware) and software stack in our cluster and it's nowhere near this kind of load, even under strain09:08
TJ-ubuntu037: same mobo/firmware version?09:08
ubuntu037that I am not sure about unfortunately09:09
ubuntu037Machine has now rebooted, load is 1.07, htop reports no movement on the 12 CPU's09:09
bekksubuntu037: So take a look at powertop.09:09
ubuntu0370.7% on a random core every 5(ish) seconds or somehting09:10
TJ-ubuntu037: differences due to firmware/ACPI can often contribute. once it is booted looking at dmesg ouput you can get the mobo/firmware version with "dmesg | grep DMI:"09:10

ubuntu037this is the "Tunables" tab http://pastebin.com/PE0chfxa09:15

ren0v0ok i've asked this over and over to no response09:23
ren0v0my software updater keeps telling me there are updates09:23
ren0v0but i've set it to notify me "never"09:23
cfhowlettren0v0, open a terminal: sudo apt-get update  | nc termbin.com 999909:24
cfhowlettpaste the url here.09:24
ren0v0cfhowlett, what does repository lists have to do with software updater asking me to update?09:25
ren0v0i have "automatically check for updates" set to *never*09:25
cfhowlettren0v0, this will display exactly what is seeking the update - something that would be helpful to know09:26
cfhowlettren0v0, I'd bet/hope you did not disable automatic security upgrades09:26
ren0v0cfhowlett, wait, so its not possible to turn this off via GUI? (security)09:27
cfhowlettren0v0, it IS possible but you are rather guessing at this point.  get the information and then you'll know.  sudo apt-get update ONLY displays what is requesting update.  it downloads/installs nothing09:28
ren0v0i can see what packages, they are security updates likely right09:28
ren0v0i want to turn this off09:28
ren0v0so i'll find out how, thanks09:28
cfhowlettren0v0, you want to turn off SECURITY?  unwise ...09:29
ren0v0i'm in the terminal 95% of the time so its fine09:29
TJ-ren0v0: there's a difference between a GUI component notifying you, and actually checking for the updates. It sounds like your problem is the former ?09:29
ren0v0TJ-, yup09:29
TJ-ren0v0: which ubuntu release, and which DE (Unity) ?09:30
ren0v0sound it  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades09:30
cfhowlettnicely done!09:30
TJ-ren0v0: that's for *applying* updates09:30
ren0v0well its currently not commented out, and it doesn't "automatically" install, it asks me, so still not the right file?09:31
TJ-ren0v0: I'd suspect you're getting notifications due to 99update-notifier09:32
AvatarAhuh, unattended does not ask09:32
AvatarAthat's why it's unattended09:32
TJ-ren0v0: but even then, the GUI will just check the file that script touches, so the GUI component is still the issue09:32
ren0v0its odd, i've been running 14.04 for ages and recently reinstalled, i dont remember ever getting these popups, ever09:34
AvatarAgetting those popups is default behavior for ubuntu 1409:35
ren0v0there aren't even any packages to install via cli lol09:35
ren0v02 kept back09:36
ren0v0ok stuff it, at least i'm on the right track i'll deal with it nother day, thanks09:36
cfhowlettren0v0, eh, might want to check that with a simulation: apt-get -s dist-upgrades09:36
TJ-ren0v0: setting may be somewhere like $HOME/.gconf/apps/update-notifier/%gconf.xml09:38

TJ-ren0v0: last answer here seems to confirm the 99update-notifier suggestion http://askubuntu.com/questions/218755/how-to-disable-the-update-manager-popup09:41
ubuntu037sorry about that, seems my son likes to cry A LOT!09:51
ubuntu037so is it less likely to be software (kernel) and more likely to be a hardware issue?09:54
ubuntu037Regarding the Mobo / Firmware, they're different on both machines09:57

rugseyhey, how do i install a windows .iso on a bootable drive FROM a linux system? i'm a newbie, please help haha10:06
cfhowlettrugsey, short answer: you don't.  get a windows machine, make your windows USB and install away10:08
cfhowlettrugsey, for further assistance, ask ##windows10:08
TJ-rugsey: if the ISO image is hybrid bootable, and you are targeting a USB mass storage device, "dd if=path/to/windows.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=100M conv=fdatasync,fsync"10:08
rugseythank you very much....10:09

rafibd01717I am using ubuntu 14.04LTS and want to upgrade it to 15.10. How can I upgrade it?10:15
cfhowlettautoit, audible clicking?  Nope, I wouldn't trust that hardware no matter what smart attributes is telling you.10:15
cfhowlettrafibd01717, 14.04 >> 14.10 >> 15.04 >> 15.1010:16

cfhowlettrafibd01717, you asked how.  I explained both options10:17
bekksautoit: It disappears in Windows because Windows uses different areas on your disk.10:17
rafibd01717I dont want to do clean install10:17
rafibd01717it would require downloading a big iso10:17

rafibd01717very bad10:18
=== user is now known as Guest41186
cfhowlettrafibd01717, then you have to do the incremental installs I described.  OR wait for 16.04 :    14.04 will directly upgrade to 16.0410:18

whothehellamihi, I am not sure if this issue is hardware related but I don't think so... I have a dual boot system with win and ubuntu 15.04 and grub is starting rly slow and needs about 3 sec for recognising my input. after selecting an entry it is also loading very slow10:38
autoitsince the first time i booted into ubuntu. it has always been like this. earlier i ignored it. but it became irritating. noise levels have not changed since when i first installed ubuntu10:38
TJ-autoit: that sounds like the drive is resetting. check 'dmesg' for I/O errors.10:39
autoitthere seem to be none.10:40
rafibd01717I think I need to clean my old virtualbox first right?10:41
autoitthe sound comes when there is a read/write op. because when i open a folder i can hear it or when i save a file10:41
autoitMonkeyDust: anything?10:42
rafibd01717so how can I remove my old virtualbox?10:43
wmorrirafibd01717, have you tried to use sudo apt-get autoremove virtualbox?10:44
rafibd01717no. trying10:44
MonkeyDustautoit  is it old hardware, maybe? which windows is on it?10:45
wmorriwhothehellami, does it happen with you choose both ubuntu and windows options?10:45
rafibd01717wmorri: is this command used to remove all packages installed from remote?10:45
autoitits win8. hardware is not old 2 years at max. plus there is the fact as soon as i boot into windows it goes away10:46
TJ-autoit: OK, I think you'll need to use hdparm to set the head-retract timeout, or disable the agressive power management10:47
wmorrirafibd01717, you can use it to remove all packages that are no longer needed or to remove one package and the dependencies as far a I know.10:48
TJ-autoit: I've seen these issues occasionally with some drives, not quite sure what triggers it10:48
autoiti read about setting the power management to 255. but i was afraid it will affect normal drive operation in windows as well10:48
rafibd01717wmorri: do I need to restart pc after removing packages?10:49
wmorrirafibd01717, no.10:49
whothehellamiwmorri, I  need to check this.10:49
wmorriwhothehellami, okay10:49
autoitwill using hdparm not affect drive operations in windows10:49
wmorrirafibd01717, if you need an exact definition for autoremove just run the command man apt-get and scroll down.10:50
MonkeyDustautoit  ubuntu and windows work independentally, unluss you used wubi10:51

whothehellamiwmorri, no drivers are installed so I don't think so. I wanted to install one but after that I got a black screen after rebooting so I've purged the nvidia stuff.11:36

whothehellamiSohron, sry I don't know what exactly u mean with "single-user mode with nvidia drivers installed"11:38

Sohronwmorri: ah so, okay11:45
Sohronwhothehellami: i don't think grub knows anything about nvidia drivers11:45

Sohronrgautam98: what is the error message actually?11:48
rgautam98It says that there is an in the / directory11:49
MonkeyDustrgautam98  the exact error message can help find a solution11:49
rgautam98And when i hit f it says there is an error in /tmp directory11:50
rgautam98Thats all it said11:50
rgautam98Now my pc is taking a long time to boot11:50
Sohronrgautam98: is /tmp a separate partition?11:50
wmorrirgautam98, a long time like 30 seconds or 5 minutes?11:51
Sohronwell, i've not met this problem rgautam98 and the error message is very vague :(11:51
rgautam98I have restarted it11:51
rgautam98The pc11:51
wmorriokay rgautam9811:52
rgautam98It is checking for errors now11:52
wmorriwhothehellami, to get back to your issue, I would keep looking for anything that has to do with grub or booting in syslog.11:53
fsociety[00]dathi #ubuntu :) is it possible to export system-wide font setting from an other Ubuntu based distro and use it for other distros? ( for Xubuntu example )11:54
wmorrifsociety[00]dat, you want to use the ubuntu font on Xubuntu?11:54
cfhowlettfsociety[00]dat, you can install fonts to buntu distros11:55
fsociety[00]datwmorri: no, I want to use Trisquel GNU/Linux system-wide font setting for Xubuntu.11:55

=== rfinley is now known as average_guy
rgautam98Even i find the error a little vague11:56
rgautam98But thank you for your support11:56
fsociety[00]datcfhowlett: to install is not important for me. settings are important.11:56
TJ-whothehellami: the best way to debug that is to first identify if the issue is with GRUB loading the vmlinuz and initrd.img kernel files into memory, or if the issue is caused whilst the kernel is initialising, or the initrd.img scripts are running.11:56
cfhowlettfsociety[00]dat, install the font.  edit your settings.  done.11:56
TJ-whothehellami: to do that, edit the kernel command-line in GRUB and remove any "quiet splash" and add "debug" so the kernel provides lots of feedback on the console.11:57
whothehellamiTJ-, ok I'll do that11:59
fsociety[00]datcfhowlett: if I do this manually screen font qualities and sizes not seem same. I have small netbook screen and especially firefox fonts are the best I have ever seen in Trisquel GNU/Linux .12:00
cfhowlettfsociety[00]dat, so install those fonts ...12:00
fsociety[00]datcfhowlett: thanks12:00
cfhowlettfsociety[00]dat, but pretty sure yo can't install settings from a foreign distro12:01
fsociety[00]datcfhowlett: Trisquel GNU/Linux is Ubuntu based and FSF supported distro, you know.12:02
cfhowlettfsociety[00]dat, true ...12:02

taavi90Hello. My screen goes off after i lock my computer..how can i set it to stay on permamently?12:24
loataavi90, change this it setting, where power managment i think.12:26
taavi90loa : it doesnt help.12:26
wmorritaavi90, I think you can change that in the brightness & lock.12:26
taavi90wmorri : yeah, i tried that too. It doesnt help12:27
taavi90I googled and found various of options12:27
taavi90Still nothing12:27
taavi90I´m on 14.0412:27
whothehellamiTJ-, wmorri, I've added 'debug' and removed 'quiet spalsh'. I think that the IBM TrackPoint needs some time...12:28
wmorritaavi90, if you set your screen to never turn off, and your lock to say 5 minutes that doesn't work.12:28
loataavi90, https://askubuntu.com/questions/15520/how-can-i-tell-ubuntu-to-do-nothing-when-i-close-my-laptop-lid12:29

=== andrea is now known as Guest94955
TJ-whothehellami: not easily, no. When the kernel is discovering hardware that's all automatic.12:38
taavi90rgautam98 : yes12:39
taavi90rgautam98 : it doesnt work12:39
whothehellamiTJ-, after changing to debug and booting. I think what took longest was the TrackPoint thing. I'll copy related dmesg output..12:39
taavi90after i lock my screen it immedinately starts to fade12:39
TJ-whothehellami: the kernel initialises the hardware, then executes the /init shell script in the initialramfs (initrd.img file) which ensures the root file-system is available and mounted, and then it pivots to the root file-system and executes the /sbin/init as process ID 1, which brings the system up fully12:40
theptrhi someone who nows how to make the icons on ubuntu desktop 14.04 by default smaller ? i found some guides but non of them work12:45
BluesKajHey all12:49
MonkeyDusttheptr  you can do it in dconf-editor12:49
whothehellamiTJ-, http://pastebin.com/PCJ6qCXG with quiet spalsh I see a 'violet' screen after selecting an entry also after selecting windows. I can see this screen for a few seconds before login screen appears or windows loading screen what made me thought that this is not as it should be. with 'debug' it seems like the TrackPoint causes that issue because this takes some seconds before I can login12:51

MrKeunerhi, using LTS I have to enter my private key pass each time I need to use my key. How can I have my system ask it only once each login?13:28
Lirory: I tried but it doesn't recognize the usb drive13:28
MonkeyDustMrKeuner  what's the difference between a key and a private key?13:29
roryLi: so you (a) formatted as ntfs, (b) selected the "show all drives" option in UNetbootin ?13:29
MonkeyDustMrKeuner  key to do or use what?13:30
MrKeunerkey is private key13:31
vi2nanoI could never get Unetbootin to work properly for me so I've learned to live without it13:32
MrKeunerfor instance I have my remote server do rsa key authentication and if I login 5 times, I am asked for rsa key pass 5 times13:32
MonkeyDustMrKeuner  you mean ssh?13:32
MrKeunerMonkeyDust, yes13:33
vi2nanobootable iso's generally have their own bootloader in the image so you shouldn't need to install grub or other bootloader with one of those tools.13:33
vi2nanoYou can just unmount the drive and remount with the -w option and dd the file to the drive13:33
Liare there any images upload sites than this imgur?13:34
MonkeyDustMrKeuner  i guess you have to enter your password for sudo and then the remote password... an rsa key should make you able to login over ssh without ssh-key13:34
Lirory: yes .. unetbootin doesn't display any connected usb drives13:35
Lirory: even though they are appearing in the file browser normally13:35

MonkeyDustMrKeuner  http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Use-RSA-Key-for-SSH-Authentication-38599.shtml13:37
MrKeunerTJ-, I think so, do I change some /etc file to run bash that way each time?13:37
TJ-MrKeuner: A regular install should enable ssh-agent for the log-in session automatically13:37
MrKeunerTJ-, are you on LTS?13:38
TJ-MrKeuner: you may need to call ssh-add once to cache the private key's pass-phrase13:38
vi2nanoLi: have to tried to just unmount and remount with the -w option13:38
TJ-MrKeuner: I'm using 15.10 and 14.04 here13:38
MrKeuneroh, you mean regular ssh-agent install or, regular LTS install?13:39
TJ-MrKeuner: as in any Ubuntu install should install, and enable, ssh-agent for log-in sessions, whether at a console or via a display manager X session13:39
TJ-MrKeuner: check if its running to begin with: "pgrep ssh-agent"13:40
Livi2nano: no13:40
Livi2nano: I mounted with remount,rw13:40
vi2nanoLi: I would try to umount and mkdir like /mnt/usbdrive and mount -w /dev/sdc13:41
vi2nanoLi: mkdir as user not as sudo13:42
MrKeunerTJ-, this is a clean LTS install and not an upgrade from earlier version. pgrep ssh-agent returns null13:42
TJ-MrKeuner: hmmm, is it a server or desktop install?13:42
MrKeunermay there was an error I may have missed in install logs? This is a desktop install13:42
MrKeunerwhat if apt-get reinstall ssh-agent? which package is that? openssh-client?13:44
AbuDharcan I remove the  zeitgeist-datahub safely?13:44
AbuDharI don't need Unity btw.13:44
TJ-MrKeuner: The X session should execute /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90x11-common_ssh-agent13:44
roryAbuDhar: if in doubt, you can do sudo apt-get -s remove zeitgeist-datahub13:45
roryAbuDhar: the -s is for "simulate"13:45
AbuDharoh let me try that.13:45
roryAbuDhar: It will show you what would be done. You can pastebin it here and we can double-check13:45
TJ-MrKeuner: ssh-agent is part of ssh-client, along with ssh itself13:45
MrKeunerTJ-, I have such a file but it seems like it is 64413:45
AbuDharRemv zeitgeist [0.9.14-0ubuntu4.1]13:45
MrKeunerso not executable...13:45
AbuDharRemv zeitgeist-datahub [0.9.14-0ubuntu4.1]13:45
TJ-MrKeuner: that's fine13:45
TJ-MrKeuner: read the file - it is sourced not executed13:45
roryAbuDhar: Sounds like you're fine then, it's not going to remove 1000 other packages along with it :)13:46
AbuDharhehe fine.13:46
TJ-MrKeuner: Are you starting the X server manually, or letting the lightdm display manager handle it?13:46
MrKeunerTJ-, I am not starting it manually. Default disp manager does that but I use gnomeshell13:47
MrKeunercan that be the reason?13:47
Livi2nano: it doesn't allow me to mkdir into /mnt as a user13:47
Limkdir: cannot create directory ‘usb’: Permission denied13:47
TJ-MrKeuner: I wouldn't have thought so, since it is supposed to be started by the Xsession facility, and as far as I am aware, gnome-shell wouldn't avoid that13:47
MrKeuneractually there is another papercut I noticed with this install. I wonder if they are related. waking up from sleep system wakes up unlocked...13:48
TJ-MrKeuner: maybe it does though; maybe there is some environment variable that is read by that 90x11-common_ssh-agent script that prevents it starting13:48
TJ-MrKeuner: I think the key part is "if has_option use-ssh-agent; then" ... "use-ssh-agent" being the operative bit13:49
TJ-MrKeuner: I find that via grep: "/etc/X11/Xsession.options:8:use-ssh-agent"13:50
vi2nanoLi: Make it somewhere else then. Doesn't matter where as long as you know where it is.13:52
vi2nanoI suppose it wouldn't matter as you'll have to mount as root13:52
vi2nanoyou could probably mkdir as root and have it work find13:52
TJ-MrKeuner: is there any record of it running in the environment: "env | grep SSH_AGENT_PID"13:52
MrKeunerTJ-, I found the line you mentioned but it is not commented out or something13:53
MrKeunerenv | grep SSH_AGENT_PID returns null13:53
TJ-MrKeuner: OK, so its not that it started and exited early then, it just hasn't started13:53
roryI have a bunch of files called page1.jpg, page2.jpg ... page60.jpg. When I do stuff in bash with them using *, it iterates in alphabetical order (1, 10, 11, etc)13:54
TJ-MrKeuner: which suggests that Xsession isn't being used for some reason13:54
roryHow can I get bash to enumerate * in NUMERICAL order?13:54
TJ-rory: pre-sort the list13:54
roryin this case I'm trying to do "convert *.jpg out.pdf"13:55
roryHow would I pre-sort it in this case?13:55
vi2nanorory: are they all the same filename besides the number?13:55
roryoh ls13:55
roryyes vi2nano13:55
MrKeunerTJ-, How can I check if it is used? pgrep -i xsession?13:56
LiDo you now what is this error I get "sudo: unable to resolve host myUserName"13:56
roryvi2nano: same deal13:56
roryvi2nano: I need to to be in numerical order not alphabetical13:56
roryvi2nano: in alphabetical order, it goes 1, 10, 11, 12... 2, 20, 21...13:56
TJ-MrKeuner: no, Xsession just calls scripts to configure the session13:56
TJ-MrKeuner: do you have "/usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop" ?13:58
MrKeunerI do13:59
vi2nanorory: try 'ls -v'13:59
TJ-MrKeuner: looking at the packages, gnome-shell depends on gnome-session, which installs that file, which I *think* is what allows gnome to be listed on the greeter screen13:59
EriC^^rory: convert $(for i in {1..9}; do echo page$i.jpg; for j in {0..9}; do echo page$i$j.jpg; done; done) out.pdf13:59

EriC^^rory: np14:00
MrKeunerTJ-, http://pastebin.com/AsruAiEE14:00
TJ-MrKeuner: the only thing I can think is to look for clues in logs. The only ones that may have something will be under /var/log/lightdm/ I think, or possibly in $HOME/.xsession-errors14:03
TJ-MrKeuner: If this is a vanilla install, with no additional PPA/manually installed packages, and no custom configuration, then I'm at a loss as to why the Xsession isn't seeming to use the ssh-agent14:04
MrKeunerTJ-, thank you so much. I'll check and let you know if I find out14:06
TJ-MrKeuner: something you could do. Add the line "echo 'starting ssh-agent' >> /tmp/ssh-agent.log" to the top of /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90x11-common_ssh-agent then try another log-in. If that log file isn't created you know that script isn't executed. If the log-file appears, but ssh-agent isn't running, you know the "if has_option use-ssh-agent ..." isn't triggered14:07

Wit ' dd if=/dev/urandom of=testfileR bs=4k count=10000; sync;' the speed is the same 7,8 MB/s. With hdparm the Timing cached reads: is about the same 4257.12 MB/sec, but the Timing buffered disk reads is much faster on the lvm. sda:470  lvm:870 MB/sec14:31
nonamaeSo will it be faster like this?14:32
nonamaehttp://pastebin.com/LyEafJeB Here is how I was doing it14:33
bekksnonamae: And whats the actual issue in one sentence?14:42
bekksnonamae: using your bs and count values, it implies (for a sane benchmark), that you have 40000k RAM only.14:42

BluesKajzidsal, no need to reinstall, which broadcom chip ?14:48
nonamaebekks, I dont know what I am doing then14:49
zidsalfinding out now BluesKaj14:49
bekksnonamae: Yeah, I told you what to do :)14:49
bekksnonamae: use bs=4k and a count value that will result in a total data about 2x of your RAM.14:50

monsuneTJ- that's pretty bad :( i screwed something in there and i need to "reset" all the files in proxmox15:52

monsunethere is some crazy mess with libs or whatever, i can't even use pveversion now15:56
cfhowlettmonsune, I know nothing about proxmox ... sorry15:56
monsunecfhowlett ok but thank you for the hint with reinstallation15:56
monsuneTJ- i was going to ask about that15:56
SchrodingersScatMrCeeIII: just going off the info I saw, avconv recognized an audio track within the file, presumably after you used -strict experimental it converted whatever was there to aac, unless there were errors.15:57
monsuneTJ- so it shouldn't touch anything like configs and reset my openvz machines?15:57

[0xBEAKER]Does anyone have any suggestions to troubleshoot a system that randomly locks up (completely - stops responding to pings, ssh, keyboard inputs, everything) daily?  There's nothing in the logs (I suspect because it freezes before it can log anything) and I've run Memtest which was fine17:35
VanessaNaireIs there a way to mount an OSX partition in Ubuntu, or do the reverse, mount a ext4 partition in OSX? I want to store files in a location accessible by both operating systems.17:36
VanessaNaireNevermind, I think I'm just going to resize my OS X partition and add a FAT32 partition to store my shared files in.17:37
Molar_Mass@VannessaNaire I have actually dual booted ubuntu and mac once, and you have to set up a separate Data partition (I'll go check, but I think it has to be NTFS).  Mac can't read ext4 I think17:37
VictoriaXOXO[0xBEAKER]: How many passes of memtest?17:37

I tried it with the Startup Disk Creator and the dd-command and even used 3 different USB sticks -- but to no avail. With either method the USB is either not even recognized during bootup or i get a black screen with nothing more than "boot error". I can't find any specific information online so I wanted t19:39

AlexQglobalist: Have you tried reading an image of the disk (after writing with dd) and verifying the md5 and/or sha1 checksum?19:40
Bashing-omthe_count: ' sudo apt-get remove steam' is the start .. if that completes .. ' sudo apt-get 0f install ' . See what Xorg looks like . O do expect to have to re-install some of the HWE components .19:41
the_countBashing-om: And another thing about completely reinstalling Ubuntu, I'm still learning the in's and out's of the file structure/os and it's not as straingtforeward for me as is windows as it currently stands19:41

the_countBashing-om: Is the heart of xorg not already removed, or does the system think they need removed when they are really nessesary?19:48
the_countBashing-om: If you were to give me a one sentence definition of HWE that would give me a basis of understanding, how would you define it?19:49

tachyondecayI tried shrinking the partition from there already, but it wants to keep like 120 GB20:27
Bitnovasounds good20:27
bekkstachyondecay: Can you take a screenshot of which disks you can see in gparted?20:28
AlexQtachyondecay: It is still a bit strange that the installer sees that partition, and GParted doesn't. Are you sure you checked the device select box in top-right corner of the GParted interface?20:28
tachyondecayI want 40 GB for Windows, 170 GB for a shared data partition, and the rest for Ubuntu20:28
bekkstachyondecay: Most likely Windows 10 needs more than 40G.20:28
tachyondecayAlexQ: Yes, the only device it sees is dev/sda (the installer USB)20:28
the_counttachyodecay: Speaking from experience, I believe Windows 8+ has hibernation set as default, disable that before you resize anything, because it can and will render that partition useless20:28
Bashing-omthe_count: Let's do this prior to rebooting . make sur the package manager is in a hppay state . ' sudo apt ypdate ; sudo apt upgrade ; sudo apt full-upgrade ; sudo apt-get install -f ; sudo dpkg -C ' . If all comes back positive , reboot .20:29
NicoHoodI wanted to add a custom (ubuntu) keyboard shortcut whith two commands. both of them work as a single shortcut, but combined with || not. In a terminal the command works correct, seems that the key shortcut doesnt like it. any ideas why? killall hyperiond || /usr/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion.config.json > /tmp/hyperionlog20:29
tachyondecaybekks: OK, but it shouldn't need 120 GB20:29
AlexQNicoHood: Because || means or, so the second will execute only if the first fails (returns non-zero value). Use ; or &&20:29
mgolischNicoHood: i dont think that kind of stuff works, write a script with that in it and call it from your shortcut20:30
mgolischAlexQ: that makes sense, only start thing if kill failed to kill it(its not started=20:30
NicoHoodbut && only works if the first was successful. I guess I am missunderstanding something here?20:30
the_countBashing-om: it completed succesfully20:31
tachyondecayWill I be cast into the fiery pits if I _don't_ use a separate data partition and just let Ubuntu merrily write documents and photos to my Windows NTFS partition like I do on my other computer?20:31
bekksNicoHood: a && b   b is executed when a was executed successfully.20:31
tachyondecayI get that having a separate data partition is good for doing clean installs.20:31
NicoHoodand how can I execute both, no matter which fails and which not?20:32
AlexQNicoHood: Just try ; as a separator20:32
AlexQmgolisch: Can't see how that would make sense. I think his intention is to restart that process, or start it if not already running.20:32
VictoriaXOXOQ: Does ANYONE know what this error (at shutdown) means? "Starting SMB/CIFS File and Active Directory Server [FAIL]"20:33
mgolischAlexQ: yeah killall will fail if its not running, so || blah would be executed then20:33

globalistxela2244: Oh, i see! Well, I had that issue as well, but some update along the way seems to have fixed that! have you upgraded your system recently?20:55
mcphailelichai2: usually an app written in an interpreted language, so will run on any architecture (e.g. a bash script)20:55
elichai2so whats better to install? architecture specific version or `all` version?20:56
xela2244globalist: yes20:56
mcphailelichai2: there shouldn't be a choice20:56
the_countBashing-om: Do you think we could install a kernel the next level underneath the current one, completeley remove the current + everything, and then try reinstalling it without obstructions? Would it be possible to do something like that? See. Since the origional kernel works better for the touchpad than this one, except for the fact that it jumps around, I wonder if there is some other problem there. Or even go back even farther to something in the midd20:56
elichai2mcphail, I want to install an old package from vivid repo20:56
elichai2(I run willy)20:56
the_countelichai2: The archetecture specific version should be smaller/ more lightweight20:57
mcphailelichai2: can you give an example?20:58
mcphailelichai2: installing a version of boost from a previous repo is a _very_ bad idea, and the files you want will be architecture specific20:59
elichai2why so bad?20:59
globalistxela2244: mh, well it doesn't really solve your issue but have you tried shutting down from the command line? there are two ways that I know of: "sudo shutdown -h now" and also "sudo systemctl -i now" (if i'm correct)20:59
elichai2I want to run a program that only works with boost1.5521:00
the_count' sudo poweroff '21:00
Bashing-omthe_count: It is a worthy thouhgt to install an earlier kernel . Maybe we do that .. I have in mind to re-install the touch pad driver .. then if still a problem generate a log file of what the driver is doing .21:00
mcphailelichai2: for a start, the c++ abi has changed from vivid to wily, and lots of apps rely on libboost. Good way to break your system. Rememebr to back up everything and be prepared for a full reinstall21:00
the_countBashing-om: We could do that, I wouldn't know how though...21:00
mgolischelichai2: what program?21:00
globalistxela2244: the systemctl command might not take "now" as an argument, so if it doesn't work just leave it out. and yes, like the_count said, there's also "sudo poweroff" :)21:01

only1dcbHey all, I'm a linux n00b, and I want to do 2 things with my new install: 1. Re-order my GRUB startup list, and 2. Install the correct Nvidia Optimus drivers for my notebook.  Is anyone up for a little guided help?21:31
HitechcgLook up grub-customizer for the first one21:32
the_countbashing-om: i'm looking at the section for ' In case Touchpad features like scrolling, tapping, etc. do not work at all. '21:32
HitechcgDo "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer", "sudo apt-get update", and "sudo apt-get install grub-customizer"21:33
only1dcbHitechcg: I did, http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/43471/how-to-configure-the-linux-grub2-boot-menu-the-easy-way/ , but in following the terminal instructions I have failed to actually install the package.21:33
daftykinsonly1dcb: nvidia chip in use? latest nvidia package along with nvidia-prime should be all you need.21:34
Bashing-omthe_count: Yep .. that section is my thought also .21:34
Hitechcgonly1dcb: What do you mean exactly? Did you get an error when trying to install it?21:35
only1dcbdaftykins: I am still using the generic driver ATM.  I wanted to change up my GRUB order first.  But the package failed to install using the commands listed above, and in the tutorial I looked up.21:35
daftykinsadjusting GRUB order beforehand makes zero sense21:36

Hitechcgonly1dcb: See if you can hide join/leaves21:39
only1dcbdaftykins: Possibly, like I said, I'm totally green on LINUX.  So you're going to have to be real basic w/ me.21:40
daftykinsBob_: enter the module name you installed into /etc/modules ; it'll be loaded at boot.21:40
HitechcgThat probably would've been smart for me to do (hide them), too.21:40
Bashing-omif it went according to plan, should have a file : 'ls -al ~/evtest ' . yeah ?21:40
daftykinsonly1dcb: no, you need to explain what you're trying to achieve with the GRUB menu :)21:40

only1dcbdaftykins: I want the Win10 parition to be the default OS.21:41
daftykinsonly1dcb: alright; so don't follow any of that guide you linked - huge waste of time installing software to do what is already built in.21:41
Hitechcgonly1dcb: What IRC client are you using? Also, I'm really only moderately knowledgeable with Ubuntu. It's been over a year thoo21:41

daftykinsBob_: well what are you doing once it boots; to manually load it?21:42
Bob_daftykins reinstall drivers21:42
daftykinsBob_: last step of which being what?21:42
the_countBashing-om: Actually... I think we should be looking at this section: ' In case your multitouch features does not work '21:43
Bob_daftykins modprobe rtl8192cu21:43
Hitechcgonly 1dcb: Go to the menu, then click Settings, then check "Hide JOINS/PARTS/QUITS". It'll make it easier to see stuff.21:44

daftykinsBob_: so that's the module name, put just that "rtl18192cu" into /etc/modules21:44

AlexQHi again. I have a problem with my touchpad: scrolling works well in clean wily install, but not so well in vivid upgraded to wily. Xorg.0.log from clean wily: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13414714/ Xorg.0.log from vidid to wily: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13415282/ . Identical xorg.conf (nothing about Synaptics touchpad there, only to enable intel tearfree): http://paste.ubuntu.com/13415509/.21:56
AlexQSo the issue (on vivid to wily) is that in apps that support smooth scrolling (e.g. gedit) it seems that both the smooth scrolling and button emulation (4,5 I guess) is working, resulting in an extremely jittery experience. Also, there is no 'bounce' shade effect when trying to scroll further than possible. Anyone?21:56
zetheroosamthewildone: ok, but then there is a serious issue as this was working in 14.04 fine21:56
int-mainI have RT3290 adapter. My Wifi says disabled by hardware switch. It used to work perfectly before.21:57

int-mainAny idea how?21:58
zetherooseems that Network Manager in general is a bit broken. If I delete a VPN connection it's still in the drop-down selection of VPN connections.21:58
daftykinsint-main: look for a key along the function keys which Fn+that will toggle wifi being on or off; they're not always dedicated sliding buttons21:58
samthewildonezetheroo, should had check the bug reports first.21:58

samthewildonezetheroo, is it something similar to this > https://askubuntu.com/questions/640009/annoying-popup-wifi-password-in-15-0422:00
daftykinsint-main: sometimes a warm reboot from Windows making use of it will help leave it on; otherwise a power off, removing the mains power + battery then holding the power button for a few seconds before reassembling and booting straight into ubuntu can help22:00

Bashing-omAlexQ: We are working a similar issue .. you might take a stroll through https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingTouchpadDetection . See if you can determine a bug .22:00
samthewildonezetheroo, all I know is little annoying problems like that are linked to bugs.22:01
int-maindaftykins: I didn't Dual boot. And I've tried those little tricks.22:01
daftykinsint-main: i have nothing for you then22:01
int-mainLooks like I've to spend rest of my life with Window22:02
AlexQBashing-om: But the thing is it was broken in my vivid as well, but it seems to be perfect in cleanly installed or live wily.22:02
AlexQBashing-om: I tried purging xserver-xorg-input-synaptics on that upgraded system, and installing again, but didn't help. It must be connected to the upgrade thing, something must be left from vivid.22:03
zetheroosamthewildone: no. In the configuration itself where you enter the password and private key - I enter both and click Save ... but the passwords are not actually saved. Furthermore the VPN account seems to not even try to connect - I don't know if its because of the passwords not being saved or Network Manager screwing something else up ...22:03
daftykinsint-main: what machine is it? make + model.22:05
int-maindaftykins: HP Pavilion 15-206tx22:06
daftykinsint-main: is it on the latest BIOS?22:06
zs3451i'm having issues with 15.10.22:06
zs3451I've just booted it off a USB22:06
int-maindaftykins: No. I guess I never updated BIOS22:06
only1dcbEriC^^: Thanks for the help, it worked!.22:06
zs3451installer isn't getting past preparing to install22:06
zs3451So, I tried opening gparted, woulden't start up.22:07
zs3451tried running as root22:07
daftykinsint-main: tried older kernels, since you said 15.04 did work in the past?22:07
zs3451same problem22:07
EriC^^only1dcb: great! no problem22:07
int-maindaftykins: The exact same ISO worked a while ago22:07
zs3451just got an error message: Libparted22:07
int-maindaftykins: Should it have anything to do with BIOS?22:07
zs3451Input/Output error during read on /dev/sda22:07
only1dcbdaftykins: Okay, now that I have GRUB the way I want it, I'm looking for guidance on installing the proper Nvidia optimus drivers instead of just the generic.  This ( http://xmodulo.com/install-configure-nvidia-optimus-driver-ubuntu.html )is what I found that looks like a decent tutorial for what I want22:08
bekkszs3451: When doing what with gparted?22:08
zs3451Just starting the program22:08
daftykinsint-main: not usually, but assuming you tried my above suggestion correctly... that doesn't leave you with a lot.22:08
zs3451Ubuntu doesen't seem to be reading my IDE disk drive22:08
sssaHello. Ubuntu backup app doesn't include .cache/dconf , .dbus and .gvfs . What's wrong?22:08
int-maindaftykins: I think I should try it. There was a BIOS update but I ignored it.22:08
zs3451so i cant get past the first or second screen to format my drive in the installer22:09
zs3451i checked the "Disks" utility22:09
zs3451it shows my drive up22:09
zs3451400 GB22:09
zs3451but I keep getting Input/Output errors.22:09
zs3451I know the drive isn't failing22:09
zs3451it just has a screwed up partition table22:09
zs3451what should I do?22:09
daftykinsonly1dcb: just use the ubuntu drivers GUI tool yes, ensuring it installs nvidia-prime you should be all good.22:09
kubast2Hey ,I installed ubuntu server onto kvm machine ,but I can't login through tty22:09

kubast2While it worked just fine on install iso [15.10 ubuntu server]22:11
zs3451anyone know what i should do about my drive?22:11
Bashing-omAlexQ: Yeah .. the-count and I have also been over that route .. still with a mal functioning touchpad . We have no solution to this time .22:12
bekkszs3451: you could wipe the partition table using dd.22:12
zs3451with /dev/zero?22:12
zs3451good idea bekks22:12
daftykinssudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=1M count=522:13
daftykinszs3451: ^22:13
cobordismI'm stuck with a problem. An upgrade from 14.04 to 15.04 failed. I could not run the upgrade manager again (error message: "cannot upgrade from 'Vivid' to 'Trusty' using this tool". Yes, you read that right). Then I tried to reboot and now I get stuck in a kernel panic. .............The next thing I did was to make a bootable usb stick for 15.04 and 15.10 and I can boot from them but wifi doesn't work. I also downloaded the correct wifi driver but I can in22:13
cobordismstall but not load(?) it on the live system so I have no internet and without internet I cannot use the live system to upgrade ubuntu, only to reinstall....22:13
daftykinsprobably moot though22:13
kubast2the keyboard works in grub through22:13
bekkscobordism: did you update from 14.04 to 14.10 to 15.04?22:13
elisa87do you know how I can solve this connection refused problem? I am using Ubuntu? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/33849107/java-net-connectexception-connection-refused ?22:13
zs3451daftykins: It did it immediately22:13
zs3451should I be worried?22:13
daftykinszs3451: no, you wrote 5MB... why would it take a long time? :)22:14
cobordismI just used the do-release-upgrade on 14.04 and it set itself to 15.04 and then failed22:14
mcphailcobordism: you are going to have to reinstall anyway. Your situation is not recoverable22:14
zs3451hahahaha it worked22:14
zs3451Thanks guys22:14
daftykinszs3451: i'm not sure i believe you on the disk's health though, run "sudo apt install smartmontools pastebinit" then "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdX | pastebinit"22:14
bekkscobordism: Thats impossible, since a direct upgrade from 14.04 to 15.04 isnt even supported.22:14
AlexQcobordism: I would start from running apt-get autoremove ; apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade22:14
zs3451daftykins: should I do this before installing?22:15
eebbHello! Anyone willing to help me with a "missing partition" problem? I had Ubuntu+Win7 dual boot earlier. Then I updated to Win10, and my laptop booted to "grub rescue". Then, I used "Boot Repair Disk", and I am able to boot only to Windows10. My Boot Repair Disk output is at http://paste.ubuntu.com/13402884/.  How can I get back my Ubuntu partition? I assume it is the sda3..22:15
daftykinszs3451: yes22:15
cobordismI cannot get into the system now @AlexQ, I can only boot a live system. I can then mount the underlying filesystem and chroot and do that kind of stuff, but I cannot just use apt-get22:15
AlexQBashing-om: So it works well for you on clean wily install/wily live too?22:16
cobordismbekks: that's what do-release-upgrade does for 14.04 these days.22:16
bekkscobordism: Impossible.22:16
kubast2ok nvm ,the keyboard no longer dares to work on this kvm machine22:16
HitechcgI recommend gparted. For some reason, gnome-disks seems to be a bit buggy, at least for me.22:16
cobordismso here is a question then, how do I make wifi work on a live system if I have the deb package with the driver?22:16
AlexQcobordism: Why don't you just install the system first then?22:16
zs3451im setting it up now daftykins22:17
daftykinsAlexQ: the commands you advised do not help given the information we were given about cobordism's situation :)22:17
Hitechcgcrap I managed to not realize I was scrolled up :/22:17
zs3451do you want to see some sort of log file?22:17
Bashing-omAlexQ: Not my problem but that of the_count . Yes on 14.04's utopic stack it works .. not on vivid's stack  .22:17
daftykinsAlexQ: please don't suggest things when you haven't read the scenario :)22:17
AlexQdaftykins: cobordism: I forgot to ask if cobordism tried to run in recovery mode22:18
zs3451daftykins: I did it22:18
daftykinsAlexQ: not gonna help a kernel panic really; please just stop22:18
daftykinszs3451: ok as it says you'll need to change it to "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdX -s on | pastebinit"22:19

Taorahello everyone, I was unpacking a tar file, and my cursor froze. then I saw the warning that my disk has 0 space, which was not possible, given the free HDD space. and 'df -h' shows the correct available space,too. so I presume the ram has been used up? but then, why should unpacking tar use up the ram?22:21
zs3451daftykins: should I be worried about these errors?22:22
AlexQTaora: Are you sure that the tar output was on the same drive that you looked at with df -h?22:22
daftykinszs3451: they do suggest it's not very happy; "dmesg | pastebinit" would be interesting to see22:22

brack9Is it possible to have a single iptables rule apply to multiple hosts?  I don't see a way to do that in the manpage, but there must be some way22:28

zs3451daftykins: I have 3 separate sata drives that don't work on the board22:28
zs3451daftykins: i'm then led to believe that it's probably the sata controller..22:29
daftykinszs3451: i don't think it's necessarily either; probably PSU related - is it old this machine?22:29
daftykinszs3451: show me an "lspci"22:29
zs3451daftykins: Machine is about 5 years old22:29
zs3451daftykins: I think it could be the PSU22:29

rampantphotoI've set up a headless Ubuntu box on my local network. However there seems to be an issue. If, for whatever reason, I have to power down the machine, when I turn it back on, it prompts me for a username / password. I have to physically plug in a keyboard, and type my username > return > password > return and then it continues to boot. I am unable to access the machine remotely via ssh until after I've done this. I'm wondering if22:37

Seveashuisk_: kylin focuses on the chinese user, so I'm guessing it comes with chinese as default language and has some additional packages specifically aimed at chinese users.22:48

huisk_ubuntu is that a safe OS? Better then W10? i use now U 15.10 64B22:49

SeveasAvocado_: what's this 'startup applications'?22:59
Avocado_its standard in ubuntu22:59
Avocado_programs that run on bootup22:59
Seveasno, they don't run on bootup22:59
Seveasthey run when you log in22:59
Seveassignificant difference :)22:59
inteusrampantphoto: ssh should work right after installation. I've never had to mess with the configuration.22:59
Avocado_technically right, but you know what I mean22:59
bekksAvocado_: its still not clear what you did where, exactly. Where did you create which folder?23:00
baiterAvocado_: 1. did you try setting your default resolution to 1920x1080 in settings? 2. did you test the script without startup applications? 3. does it need permissions to run?23:00
Seveastry not using --mode but --fb23:01
Seveasand if that still doesn't work, add --display=:023:01
Avocado_1. yes, 2. no, i see that my script doesnt work 3. yes, but i set chmod +x on it23:01
rampantphotointeus: if my setup wasn't such a paint to move, i'd plugin a monitor to see why it's asking me for a login. is there a way after ssh-ing in to go back and read that login prompt?23:02
baiterAvocado_: first, i'd press command key + search "display"23:02
inteusyou could try looking at /var/log/bootlog23:02
inteusrampantphoto: you could try looking at /var/log/bootlog23:02

Avocado_Got it to work!23:08
hduserhi all23:08
AlexQBashing-om: So both these files were just scrolling up and down with two fingers, didn't want to make them too large with other events. Also, the capabilities list tells the touchpad supports multitouch, obviously. I think it will be interesting to see these files generated on freshly installed willy, where scrolling works well, so rebooting there. Will be back in a sec23:08

rampantphotointeus: well that makes me feel better.23:12
VictoriaXOXONa3iL: You seem smart. Do you also know why I get notifications for almost everything (MATE), but not for when VPN disconnects or when my network disconnects?23:13
eebbNa3iL: Thanks, I will check that23:13
Bashing-omAlexQ: Presently baffeled as to what is not being interpreted from where . Keep in mind there are several bug reports that are pointing the fingers at the proprietary code .23:14
rampantphotointeus: i'm seeing a lot of "Fails password for root from ---ip---"23:14

Na3iLYou are using proxy or a manual config in your browser rampantphoto23:18
Na3iLNope Onepamopa what kind of problem you get?23:18
inteusrampantphoto: do you port forward from your router to your ubuntu? that could leave you open to the world.23:18
AlexQOnepamopa: For me it was a disaster, but luckily managed to solve. Maybe start from checking dist-upgrade log?23:18
OnepamopaNa3iL, I'll pastebin what I can from the log.23:18
rampantphotointeus: yes, i think so.23:18
BlastRed Hello, i've recentely replaced my hard drive with a new one, which has w7 on it and a bunch of my ol' files. i keep getting the error "OS not found", but if i boot up my disk drive and go on linux mint, its mountable and i see all my w7 files... whats wrong with it?23:18
rampantphotoNa3il: not that i know of23:18
rampantphotoi'm quite new at this, so i'm probably making more than one mistake23:19
BlastRed(thanks Bashing-om )23:19
MonkeyDustrampantphoto  type this in a termina (those are backticks, not quotes)    whois `curl ifconfig.me`23:19
inteusrampantphoto: you should use a different external port to point to internal port 22....something like 2222...makes it more secure...non-default.23:19
OnepamopaNa3iL, well, I can't copy from the "Distribution upgrade" window for some reason. Any of this logged anywhere ?23:20

AlexQBashing-om: Well, the only thing I actually want to achieve is for the scrolling to work on my vivid upgraded to wily as it works on my freshly installed wily. There just has to be some different package, or config remaining from vivid there? Really no idea how to look for that? I don't know much about that stuff.23:20
Na3iLBlastRed, you ask that question in #freenode23:21

Na3iLVictoriaXOXO, I will search if anyone declared the bug in LP, meanwhile you can install directly Ubuntu MATE it is more stable as I think..23:24
AlexQOnepamopa: Well, the worst thing for seemed to be that I had linux-generic package missing (probably my fault, I think it was removed automatically when removing something else before upgrade...) so I ended up without updated kernel, and the old one seemed  to have issues.23:24
AlexQOnepamopa: But I would really start from checking update log. It is in a folder in /var/log/ ..., don't remember exactly.23:24
the_countBashing-om: back23:25
rampantphotointeus: yes, i think so. not sure how to do that off hand, but i'll look it up. thanks23:25
noahWhy does the 14.04 to 15.04 upgrade fail? I have a ASUS M3A78CM Motherboard, a AMD Athlon processor, 4G of RAM and a 250G Harddisk.23:25
mlvmhnmy system hangs when i run qbittorent, but not when it is not running. why is this??23:25
Avocado_how do i install google chrome on ubuntu?23:26
MonkeyDustnoah  how did you upgrade? via 14.10 or a fresh install?23:26
Na3iLnoah, It is not possible to upgrade directly from 14.04 to 15.04. These days a lot of people think that 15.04 is LTS.23:26
VictoriaXOXONa3iL: No time for that. :(23:26
Na3iLYou can upgrade from 14.04 to 14.10, then to 15.04. Or just make a fresh install.23:26
inteusrampantphoto: you will probably keep getting unautorized ssh attempts while port 22 is open to the internet. not a huge problem if you have very secure passwords.23:27
noahIn order to install Google Chrome, you must first use apt-add-repository to add the chrome repo. Then install frome Ubuntu Software Center23:27
noahI upgraded from 14.04, not clean install.23:27
AlexQAvocado_: Or you can just download a package from Google (64 or 32 bit one). That should add Google's repo automatically as well. You might consider Chromium as well, which is in Ubuntu repo.23:27
noahOK. I'll try that. Thanks.23:27
MonkeyDustnoah  so first to 14.10 and then to 15.04?23:27
Avocado_yeah i just dled it from googles website23:28
Avocado_how do i know which repo is google's?23:28
Avocado_to do the add repo thing23:28
Na3iLVictoriaXOXO, my humble opinion is to try more DE, I tried most of them and I am satisfied now with Awesome wm23:28
AlexQAvocado_: I think the easiest way is to just download the .deb file. https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html23:29
Avocado_yeah ill stick to that23:29
VictoriaXOXONa3iL: I don't know how to install them without getting all the software that comes with them.23:29
noahlook it up. I did it, but I do not know the repo name. Search for "add google chrome repo ubuntu"23:29
OerHeksAvocado_, You need the deb from the google site, it installs the ppa & key23:30
the_countBashing-om: So.. If you are around... We could proceed23:30
Na3iLI can help you with installing them VictoriaXOXO just pick up a good DE that makes you feel comfortable :)23:30

VictoriaXOXONa3iL: Cinnamon without anything (!) extra would be nice. No additional software, just visual changes, please.23:31
noahuse the 'dpkg' command to install a deb file from terminal23:31
Avocado_what does the -i do23:31
bpromptahemm -i "install" oddly enough23:31
Na3iL-i means install Avocado_23:31
Avocado_ahh, i feel dumb now lol23:31
Avocado_what about dpkg, what does that stand for?23:32
noah-i means install23:32
Avocado_hard to remember a word like that23:32
OerHeksAvocado_, odd, you have the packagemanager.. why doyou ask?23:32
Na3iLAvocado_, just use man dpkg23:32

vachowill upgrade upgrade it to 15.10?23:34
bpromptAvocado_:   when  you use apt-get, or the Software Center to install stuff, what they're really doing is giving you an UI, and asking dpkg to install this or that23:34
Avocado_bprompt, thanks, makes sense23:34
Avocado_What irc client do you guys recommend?23:34
qumy /etc/hosts seems useless now. i set ` www.abc.com` in `hosts`, but when i `ping www.abc.com`, returns `PING kevin.com.router ( 56(84) bytes of data.` Why? (lubuntu 15.10)23:35

OerHeksNa3iL, win key super key, microsoft key, whatever23:38

linux77537Ive done it before but forgot how to ?23:44
rampantphotointeus: so, in trying to set up my ssh key i did a "ps -ef | grep sshd" and i'm not sure what i'm seeing, but could that give any insight to my original issue?23:44
MonkeyDustlinux77537  what type of file is it? edit it with its normal program23:44
linux77537but I cant boot into my system23:44
bpromptint-main:     many laptops have a WiFi switch or button or slider, either on the front left or right side, or on the sides, by the headphone jack or by the dvd drive bay23:44
linux77537thats why I booted up a live CD23:44
int-mainbprompt: I am 100% sure mine doesn't have that23:45
bpromptint-main:    usually a push button, or a slider, and it usually has an orange or green signaling light next to it23:45
MonkeyDustlinux77537  start from the beginning, what happened23:45
AlexQint-main: Maybe try to hold this key combination for a second or two, I observed that I need to hold my physical switch in position for it to work oddly. Thought that there is a serious problem with the driver or sth, until I realised that holding for a sec helps.23:45
bpromptint-main:    could be a Fn combination as well, turning off wifi23:45
noahint-main: Try deleting the connection, restarting the computer, and try again. You will need to reenter the password.23:45
the_countint-main: On the F12 key, is there a wifi signal icon?23:46
int-mainnoah: You are not getting me. It doesn't show any connection. It says Wifi disabled by hardware switch. I can't do anything with Wifi its like disabled.23:46
bprompthint:  "Wifi disabled by hardware switch."23:46

int-mainnoah: Kind of like http://karuppuswamy.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Screenshot-from-2012-08-16-210336.png23:47
Avocado_When I do a command like /whois on irssi, nothing shows up, how come?23:47
bpromptint-main:    check closely, maybe even an Fn combination, as aforementioned, the f12 sometimes, may have a light next to it, if it's orange, that means wifi is off23:47
Na3iLJust push the button or flip the switch or use the FN-key combo to manually enable your wireless.23:47
int-mainbprompt: It is indeed orange but pressing it doesn't change it color. Doesn't do anything23:47
bpromptAvocado_:     /whois nick  or /whois channel  or /who channel23:48
AlexQint-main: So you're saying that function key combination doesn't work? Really, try holding it for a second or two instead of just pressing quickly.23:48
int-mainbprompt: previosly it used to work with orange light anyway.23:48
Avocado_bprompt, I do that, it doesnt show up anything23:48
bpromptint-main:   ahhhh, so f12 light is orange, that measn wifi off :), by "hardware switch"23:48
int-mainAlexQ: I have tried all sort of pressing. Quick press, hard press, long press.23:48
Avocado_where should it show it?23:48
Na3iLint-main, use your terminal rfkill list all then lsmod23:48
noahI see ... Most problems are from the kernel/driver, is there any loaded modules (run 'modprobe | grep 'wireless'. It works for me :))23:48
ApteryxHi, I'd like to know if my ~/.profile file is supposed to be run by lightdm (at login) ?23:48
the_countint-main: So, you tried it pressing the fn key with the F* key?23:48

int-mainNa3iL: It works when the Wireless is soft blocked. Mine is hard blocked. I've already tried what you are saying, doesn't help23:49
bpromptint-main:    yes, we understand that, BUT, the idea of that light there on that key, is not accidental, but is for a Fn key combination to turn it on or off23:49
Na3iLAvocado_, check the 1st tab "freenode" you will see the outputs of your commands.23:50
bpromptint-main:   got an [fn] key on the keyboard? as in between the [ctrl] and the winkey?23:50

Avocado_bprompt, im on hexchat, i just want to make irssi work for me23:51
int-mainI am trapped with Windows and i have no idea how to solve this problem.23:51
Bashing-omAvocado_: type ' /win 1 ' .. irssi by default sneds messages to thge status (win #1 ) window .23:51
Aceriobprompt: I use HexChat. Great client!23:51
AlexQint-main: But bear in mind that if you press it again before checking, you might have switched on and then back off without realising.23:51
Na3iL+1 bprompt , try hexchat Avocado_23:51
noahint-main: Then it must be the computer :(23:51
AcerioAvocado: What is wrong about HexChat, that makes you want to migrate?23:52
the_countAvocado_: Sometimes the best way to learn something is to use it23:52
Aceriothe_count: Well said.23:52
noahBye, Everyone! Be back in 1 hour ;)23:52
int-mainnoah: then why would it work on Windows? Questions keep coming up.23:52
AcerioSee ya noah.23:52
Avocado_the_count, I am using it atm23:52
MonkeyDustbreaking and fixing things is a good way to learn23:52
AcerioAvocado_: Have you tried reading the wiki/documentation/tutorial?23:52
Acerioor messing around23:52
bpromptint-main:    HP Pavilion 15-206tx  right?23:52
int-mainbprompt: thats right23:53
AcerioAvocado_: And what is wrong with HexChat anyways?23:53
Bashing-omthe_count: Returning to launchpad for reading .23:53
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: and yes, since you're worried about a single piece of text on shutdown, i won't help :)23:53
the_countAvocado_: Well, keep using it. Learn it in and out, and by and by you will figure out all it has to offer23:53
bpromptint-main:   hmmm   yes, the [fn] key will be between the [ctrl] and winkey, check closely ->   [fn], is it there?23:53
Avocado_the_count, Ok, ill try to figure it out23:53
the_countAcerio: Thanks23:53
int-mainbprompt: Yes it is.23:53
Avocado_Is there any program that lets me take screenshots of my window and auto-uploads it?23:53
Avocado_Which do you guys recommend23:53
AcerioAvocado_: Greenshot.23:53
AcerioAvocado_: Not sure if that is for Linux, it should be.23:54
Avocado_Acerio, their website is down I see.23:54
bpromptint-main:    well, there are two ctrl keys... the left one... ok... so.. .press [fn] and f12, hold [fn] and press f12, and wait, the light will turn green, meaning, wifi on23:54
Na3iLAvocado_, Shutter is a useful tool23:54
AcerioAvocado_: Oh yeah, database error. Maybe CNet has a copy, but they probably only have the Windows copy, unless you want to use wine.23:54
the_countAvocado_ Or, it would probably take just as much time to press the Print Screen button and upload it yourself23:54
Avocado_Ill try shutter23:55
AcerioAvocado_: I'm not sure if Greenshot has a Linux version, but I'm 90% sure they do.23:55
int-mainbprompt: I am sorry man. I've tried those things already.23:55
the_countint-main: Take a picture of the keyboard if you could...23:55
bpromptint-main:    ok, no biggie, meaning you have "media keys" ON in bios... so, press the [f12] by itself then, and wait23:56
the_countBashing-om: I appreciate your efforts23:56
int-mainbprompt: Tried that too.23:56
Na3iLand Avocado_ follow the 1st answer to know how to make Shutter do auto-uploads.. :) https://askubuntu.com/questions/177921/whats-a-screenshot-application-which-will-auto-upload-to-imgur23:56
the_countint-main: Have you tried holding down [f12] by itself for a while to change?23:57
Avocado_Na3iL, doesn't uploading to imgur automatically make it public?23:57
Avocado_Like, people can browse in newly uploaded images and will see it?23:57
bpromptint-main:    well, is not software, from what we can tell, so, the drivers are loaded so far we can tell, it's a hardware issue, and pretty sure is the [fn] switch, since I also have a pavillion23:57
=== annie_ is now known as Guest000
Na3iLYep sure Avocado_23:57
AcerioAvocado_: No, by default it should be unlisted, unless people have the URL.23:57
AcerioAvocado_: But that can be changed.23:58
int-mainbprompt: I don't understand. Out of the blue it stopped working, I install Windows and Wireless is fine23:58
int-mainI guess I will have to live with Windows for a while23:58
bpromptint-main:    it might take some pressing, then waiting a few a few times, but pretty sure is the [fn]+[f12] combination23:58
Na3iLYou can use it anonymously Avocado_23:58
bpromptint-main:     so... booting in windows it works?  you didn't mention that before23:58
the_countint-main: Can you turn on and shut off wifi with the key combination in windows?23:58
int-mainbprompt: I did. I said if it works fine in Windows then it isn't hardware.23:59
freakyyi wonder ... if i should install ubuntu on my hdd. ... i have an ssd but not enough room for ubuntu on it sadly ;(23:59
int-mainthe_count: yes. Absolutely.23:59
Aceriofreakyy: Get a minimal build of Ubuntu.23:59
dersandI'm not sure where to adresss this question. But i got a lost android device, it's online and somehow has an internet connection. I'm wondering if i can set-up some SSH-server on that device by installing some app from the play store.23:59
the_countint-main: Exactly how do you do that?23:59
