newbie|3daftykins: I burned a CD with three songs on it.  I want to send it to a person with the person's name, postal address and the list of songs.  I don't think I can print on the CD itself, but want to print a label that I can put on the CD00:01
newbie|3daftykins: If I can print it on a sticker / label, I'll be happy00:02
daftykinsnewbie|3: yeah ok, lightscribe was a technology that you could flip a disc then use a laser to write a label... anyway;i would highly recommnd against that - it's not safe00:02

Guest72802is it practical to load a graphical virtual environment while booted into a non graphical linux environment?00:05
Bashing-omCharcoal1ire: Looks good , now RE-boot and when back up run ' sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-trusty xserver-xorg-lts-trusty libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-trusty '. Get ya up on the latest HWE .00:05

UnArmedI have a Dell Latitude E6530 and its suppose to have bluetooth capabilites, Ubuntu tells me that no Bluetooth adapters are found, what am I to do?00:26
tewardUnArmed: I have a similar model and it detects bluetooth.  Pastebin the output of 'lspci'00:27
k1l_UnArmed: see "lspci" and "lsusb" and "rfkill list"00:27
teward^ that00:27
k1l_UnArmed: and make sure to see if there are no hardware switches turned off or the shortcuts are toggled00:28
UnArmedteward, http://pastebin.com/kVrUdwS500:28
UnArmedkil_, http://pastebin.com/Gu8BnF6Q00:31
k1l_are you sure that exact laptop got bluetooth build in?00:31
UnArmedI am not 100% certain, no.00:31
OerHeksthat BCM43228 is a dual chip, wifi and BT..00:31
UnArmedLooking at the specs on the internet, it says it does..its all i know00:32
k1l_UnArmed: well, you can let them ship with different settings from dell. or someone changed the cards inside etc.00:32
UnArmedk1l_, I see. I bought it from dell..no cards were changed, I have never tried to use the bluetooth until now, so not sure.00:33
tewardOerHeks: know how to make it work on both bluetooth and wifi then?00:33
tewardif it's a dual chip, that is00:33
k1l_UnArmed: try the key-combo for enabling BT/wifi00:33
UnArmedI am not familiar with key-combo..00:34
k1l_FN+   whatever is printed on there for wifi and/or bluetooth00:34
OerHeksaccording to this post, kernel 3.16+ supports it http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=226652700:35
tewardUnArmed: it may look like the bluetooth symbol or a wireless antenna with a wireless signal coming out of it, and then follow what k1l_ said00:35

mekhamiwhy am i getting this error: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/da065dc5ed29bbe54fc200:39
tewardmekhami: because something depends on something else that's not available00:39
k1l_UnArmed: what gives" usb-devices"?00:39
daftykinssounds like you're using a messy PPA, mekhami00:39
teward^ that00:39

daftykinsmekhami: i don't know, i can't check your package sources from here...00:41
tewardmekhami: sounds like you have conflicts.  we can't tell what PPAs you have enabled or not00:42
mekhamioh sorry i thought it was in there. yeah i added ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa00:42
tewardmekhami: apt-cache policy wine-1.7 may shed some light into what's on your system or not, or rather where that's available/pulled from00:42
k1l_mekhami: apt-cache policy wine1.700:42
k1l_that will tell where that package is from00:42

tewardmekhami: i suggest doing what k1l stated, the apt-cache policy, either my command or theirs, and pastebin it00:45
tewardmekhami: i also wanted the output for the other two specified packages00:46
k1l_UnArmed: hmm, dont see a BT chip there00:46
tewardmekhami: apt-cache policy wine1.7 wine1.7-amd64 wine1.7-i38600:47
UnArmedok it must not have one then00:47
mekhamiteward: updated the gist00:47
k1l_UnArmed: so make sure you dont have a hardware switch turned off or try to check the key-combo if that enables one. because that way it only can be blocked by hardware.00:47

tewardmekhami: start installing dependencies one by one, see where it fails00:48
teward(this is the headachey way of figuring out what's broken, but meh)00:48
tewardmekhami: so, apt-get install wine1.7-amd64 wine1.7-i38600:48

tewardmekhami: E: Not Updated00:49
UnArmedk1l_, Okay, thanks for your help.00:49
tewardmekhami: okay, well... part of the headache in here is that the dependencies are broken00:50
tewardmekhami: libgnutls26 for instance is not available in 15.1000:51

tewardmekhami: though I know wine1.7 in that PPA for Trusty (14.04) is updated and works00:52
tewardi'll poke the wine ppa people :)00:52
teward... later :)00:52
mekhamino worries, gotta run for now, i'll be back later to ask some more and get this working00:53
tewardmekhami: it won't be fixed until the PPA gets updated00:54
tewardthere's dependency failures00:54
mekhamidoes that typically take a while?00:54
mekhamiis there somewhere i can report this?00:54
daftykinsmekhami: it's not ubuntu's fault when you're using a PPA, what's the deal here anyway? is it games related?00:56
tewarddaftykins: he wants EVE Online00:56
tewardwhich needs Wine00:56
mekhamidaftykins: yeah i'm trying to run an app through wine00:56
daftykinsyeah that's me out then, more to life than games on Linux00:56
mekhamii wasn't suggesting it was ubuntu's fault, maybe that i could report it to the wine group00:56
mekhamidaftykins: sure, i just don't feel like dual booting00:56
mekhamior buying a copy of windows for that matter00:56
daftykinsi don't need to know :)00:57
mekhami'more to life than games on Linux' man that's a really strange statement to make.00:57
daftykinsyour point escapes me :)00:58
tewardmekhami: I sent an email to the people who are in the Ubuntu Wine team and maintain that PPA, but don't expect expedient fixes.00:59
tewardAlternatively, don't use the latest release of Ubuntu, and use LTS ;)00:59

CharcoalfireBashing-om: So, now my computer has some kind of pop-up about low graphics mode and can't connect to the Internet or anything. I'm borrowing a laptop and downloading a new 12.04 iso. I think my current strategy is going to be to just reinstall and recover my home folder.01:01
CharcoalfireBashing-om: And still no GUI, so low-graphics mode just seems to be no-graphics mode?01:02
daftykinsCharcoalfire: it's 2015, don't use 12.04 anymore01:03
xar-there a whatprovides dpkg equivalent; trying to track down the origin of a package01:03
mekhamiteward: i didn't really know much about ubuntu when i installed 15.10, else i would have installed .0401:04
daftykinsxar-: you mean what installed a given package? look at its' dependencies or reverse deps01:04
tewardmekhami: no problem.  I've sent an email out, but don't expect much in any expedient time frame.01:04
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: IF you are to take that nuclear solution . 3 considerations . 12.04 with or without HWE .. or fresh install the current LTS 14.04 - with or without . ( HWE is to support newly released hardware, does it apply in your case ?) .01:04
deleteIs unity getting axed yet?01:04
xar-I mean a tool that can resolve it for me, similar to yum whatprovides01:04
deleteand mir01:04
Charcoalfiredaftykins: Which one, then? 15.10, 15.04, 14.10?01:05
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: The ;ow graphocs moode is in all likely hood we have yet to get a graphics driver to install .01:05
deleteor at least Unity ported to Mir01:05
daftykinsCharcoalfire: 14.04 is LTS01:05
deleteI mean wayland, not mir01:05
erry /401:06
CharcoalfireBashing-om: I can't install a graphics driver without being able to connect to the Internet.01:06
Charcoalfiredaftykins: Okay.01:06
daftykinsthat's actually not true, connectivity just makes it easier01:07
logglogDoes some1 mind explaining me what is this display server mir and xorg, wayland. I tried with googling, and i didnt understand :P01:07
CharcoalfireWell, yeah.01:07
UserUzerHello. How can I copy files without eating all my hard drive bandwidth?01:07
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: True ... on the internet .. is the WIFI ? and how in the world can that possibly get broken (??) !01:07
k1l_delete: neither MIR nor Unity get axed.01:07
CharcoalfireBashing-om: When it removed every program, it seems to have removed EVERY program. Including stuff to connect to the Internet.01:08
daftykinsUserUzer: system grinds to a halt if you do a lot of IO huh?01:08
Charcoalfiredaftykins, Bashing-om: I probably should've done a new install forever ago, so even if I can still fix my current super-broken one, it's probably not worth it.01:09
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: Not a clue why/how that transpired . We took pains to make sure the system was updated ( so far as we could ) I did not see that the sytem was badly broken from the outputs .01:10
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: I must say however, I like 14.04 muchly over 12.04 .01:11
CharcoalfireBashing-om: When I was running the commands to update the kernel to Trusty, it went through a long thing of "removing virtualbox" "removing skype" "removing xchat".01:11
CharcoalfireBashing-om: What do you prefer about 14.04?01:11
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: Itis faster and cleaner ..01:11
UserUzerdaftykins, kind of. If I'm copying a lot of data I can't do things like listetning to music without getting an error that my hdd can't keep up with music playing lol01:11
=== trisquel is now known as Guest35183
UserUzerSo I would like to copy the files without using all my drive's speed so that I can do other things at the same time. I don't need to copy those files as soon as possible01:13
daftykinsUserUzer: how old is this system?01:13
UserUzer2010 low end laptop01:13
CharcoalfireSo, when the .iso finishes - I need to do a live boot, back up my home folder, and then install 14.04, and stick the home folder files into it. Right?01:13
daftykinsand HDD for sure, not SSD?01:13
daftykinsCharcoalfire: yep that's about the gist of it01:14
UserUzerdaftykins, yes, hdd. I'm hoping there's a way to copy files at a custom speed, probably via termnal. Right?01:14
CharcoalfireThanks for the confirmation, daftykins.01:14
xar-UserUzer: I/O scheduling is "Hard" (^TM); it's not for the faint of heart; can what you're asking be done? technically yes? is it worth the effort in learning CFQ techniques? probably not.01:14
=== delete is now known as deletemeplease
UserUzerxar so it's complicated01:15
daftykinsUserUzer: i'd do a quick check on the HDD health first, just in case it's screaming because of that... "sudo apt install pastebinit smartmontools" then "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda | pastebinit"01:15
xar-UserUzer: depends on who is implementing it. ;)01:15
UserUzerdaftykins, does that command require the hdd to be idle? coz I'm still copying the files, though I think I can cancel and resume later01:17
daftykinsUserUzer: nope01:18
=== adam__ is now known as Guest76693
daftykinsi'd imagine you could speed limit with rsync, btw01:18
xar-UserUzer: you can also try to leverage kernel cgroup(s) and restrict io on a per-process basis, also for "power users"; I have no idea what daftykins is talking about though. lol01:19
daftykinsUserUzer: also, open another terminal and run "top" then state the "wa" value01:19
daftykinsxar-: checking SMART disk status for whether it's faulty slowing things down, or just rate limiting a file copy with rsync...01:19
UserUzerI don't see no wa column on top... xar, is rsynch what you were referring to?01:20
xar-it's an interesting place to start, so you're assuming the drive is bad? :o01:20
xar-UserUzer: I'm talking about applying custom io scheduling in general; you can indeed apply it to rsync in userland01:21
daftykinsno i'm saying check it since it takes one command01:21
daftykinsi think xar- is taking this request a little too far personally ;)01:22
daftykinsUserUzer: it's not a column, 'wa' is along the top01:22
daftykinse.g. %Cpu(s):  0.0 us,  0.3 sy,  0.0 ni, 99.3 id,  0.0 wa,01:23
UserUzeryes, it says "... 0.3 wa, 0.0 hi, ..."01:23
daftykinsok so can you run the commands i mentioned and paste the pastebin link it creates?01:23
xar-you have to use control groups if you're going to confine and/or isolate system resources; my answer isn't too far, rather it's 'correct' lol01:24
daftykinsnot for a beginner chan :)01:25
daftykinsUserUzer: also "dmesg | tail | pastebinit"01:26
TechspectreIf I set up a shared folder in Ubuntu 12.04 on one machine, is there any reason I should have issues accessing it from Ubuntu 15.04 on another machine?01:28
xar-I don't think this is a beginner chan, unless it devolved into that... I certainly hope not.01:28
xar-UserUzer: the cgroup subsystsem in ubuntu is called 'blkio', so you can start your research there ;)01:29
UserUzerxar ok I give up.01:29
=== drmeister_ is now known as drmeister
daftykinsUserUzer: ok nothing particularly looks to be a problem, certainly a cheap slow HDD but that's about it :>01:29
topunxerxar- Techspectre and UserUzer are not lying01:29
xar-pardon me?01:30
TechspectreI tend to ask my questions in as broad a fashion as I possibly can on this channel, though, because if I'm too specific people are less likely to respond01:31
TechspectreI could have said "Is there any incompatibility in samba versions between 12.04 and 15.04"01:32
UserUzerdaftykins, when buying a hard drive, how can I check it's not a cheap slow one that would give me this kind of problems?01:32
topunxerUserUzer: spindle speed01:33
daftykinsUserUzer: i've seen media players stop and start when a disk the music is on is under high IO, but the errors you mention are a bit odd to me - be interesting to see a screenshot/paste of one?01:33
daftykinsUserUzer: well i wouldn't buy an HDD at all now, if your laptop had room for it, i'd have an SSD for the OS and keep that disk for pure storage01:33
UserUzeras in a ssd for / and /boot and a hhd for /home?01:34
TechspectreUserUzer, that is an ideal configuration. Also SSD for swap01:34
UserUzerdaftykins, but if I keep this one how will I avoid the problems?01:35
topunxerWho uses swap anymore Techspectre01:35
daftykinseveryone, actually01:35
TechspectreMost people01:35
daftykinsUserUzer: yes, split tasks between. well, can you share this error that comes up? or explain what your file copy is, just a backup to a NAS or something?01:36
xar-Techspectre: my response was in response to daftykins, not you, sorry for the confusion ;)01:36
Techspectrexar-, ah I see. No big deal01:37
daftykinsxar-: the pardon? no idea what you're on about then.01:37
topunxerUserUzer: not needed really. Swap is old fashioned01:37
UserUzerdaftykins, ok, I'll be a bit more specific: I was moving files from one hdd partition to another01:37
daftykinsaaaah so an internal transfer01:38
daftykinsyeah that's no surprise01:38
TechspectreSo... I did install samba, etc. via Nautilus's utility to set up shared folders, but when I connect with smb://IP address it just shows me 'Print$'01:38
topunxerIf you need swap then you have old machine01:38
daftykinsideanlly then, either get an SSD+HDD setup if your laptop has internal space, or get a NAS maybe so you can keep some storage off this laptop.01:38
UserUzer"no surprise"? so it's normal on any hdd?01:38
xar-daftykins: 'topunxer' came out of left field with an incoherent comment that didn't make sense, hence the excusal, at no time did I feel like UserUzer was lying about his observation(s)01:39
daftykinstopunxer: you do know swap is used for sleep and hibernate also?01:39
Techspectretopunxer, I'm not sure if that's really the case... I'm certain that I don't need swap, because my machine has 24 GB of memory, but I have swap anyway because not having swap leads to problems01:39
daftykinsxar-: i never said anything about anyone lying or not, i think you might want to read back and double check who you think is saying certain things.01:39
xar-daftykins: 10 minutes ago, "Techspectre and UserUzer are not lying" O_o01:40
topunxerIf you hibernated. It's faster and better to power off. Sleep to ram don't need swap01:40
daftykinsxar-: yeah i don't know why you're telling ME this though, can we get back on topic please?01:41
xar-daftykins: because you asked 4 minutes ago "the pardon?" lol01:42

AnimalFarmPigI'm looking to change operating systems on one of my boxes, and I'm leaning towards ubuntu. It will be a file server (nfs & cifs) using bcache to accelerate a mdraid mirror. I may also run some lxc containers. It looks like bcache tools are available in 14.04. Any reason I would want to go with 15.10 instead of 14.04?02:04
k1l_AnimalFarmPig: usually you dont want non-LTS on servers. you will nee to upgrade that box in 8 months at least. on LTS you got 5 years support. which means 14.04 still got more than 3 years left02:06
AnimalFarmPigYeah, I prefer to stay on a LTS02:07
k1l_AnimalFarmPig: or you install 15.10 now and upgrade to 16.04 next year. 16.04 will be LTS02:07
AnimalFarmPigis it a pretty smooth upgrade typically? Also, 15.10 is systemd, yeah?02:07
k1l_yes, since 15.04 ubuntu got systemd02:07
k1l_upgrades are automated tested. so should work in most times.02:07
AnimalFarmPigcool, good to know. I think I'll stick with 14.04. I remember reading about problems with systemd and containers02:09
TechspectreWait so you can do a system upgrade without having issues now?02:09
TechspectreYou don't need to do a fresh install?02:09
k1l_Techspectre: i do upgrades since 11.xx on a machine.02:09

UserUzerdaftykins, I mean, before starting to copy anything02:12
daftykinsUserUzer: i think you might want to provide an example of these messages you say ubuntu is giving :>02:13
k1l_Techspectre: you would need the LTS upgrade to 14.04, then the EOL-upgrade to 14.10, then another EOL-Upgrade to 15.04 then regular upgrade to 15.1002:13
k1l_Techspectre: tl;dr: a reinstall would be much more faster.02:14
UserUzerdaftykins, "an additional Xgb will be needed" something like that is shown before copying right?02:14
TechspectreOkay. I've actually got my mom on Ubuntu 12.04, which I installed for her years ago. I'll jump her up to 15.10 one of these days.02:14
daftykinsUserUzer: err nope that sounds more like an upgrade you're talking about there.02:15
k1l_Techspectre: honestly: jump here to 14.04 with the LTS upgrade.02:15
UserUzerhave you never tried to copy a folder where it won't fit?02:15
k1l_then wait untill 16.04.1 is released and jump her to 16.04 with the next LTS upgrade02:15

hfpHi all, I have installed Chrome 43 on Ubuntu 12.04 using the .deb package that Google offered. Now Chrome is outdated and I want to use PPA via apt-get rather than downloading the new .deb. I added Chrome's PPA to my apt-get, ran apt-get update then upgrade, Chrome 46 was installed. But when I launch Chrome, it's still v43. If I uninstall Chrome 46 using apt-get purge, I don't seem to have Chrome anymore (sear02:28
hfpching for it using the launcher widget doesn't return any result). If I install Chrome using apt-get and check for the version, it's v43 again. How do I fix this so Chrome 43 installed from Google's .deb is fully uninstalled and apt-get handles Chrome?02:29
UserUzerdaftykins, basically I'm making a backup of partition a on partition b, hence I'm copying almost everything02:29
daftykinsUserUzer: i see, this is a huge waste of time, a backup is not a backup when it's on the same physical disk.02:29

Bashing-omhfp: google-chrome is proprietary to google .. it is not in the repo or availabale via a PPA .02:30
daftykinsUserUzer: crazy plan right there02:30
OerHekshfp, strange, the deb from google just adds the repo + key, so you had the original chrome anyway, and would get the latest trough updates02:31
UserUzerIf I had more free space I would have left those partitions alone but unfortunatelly it's filling up. YES, I will buy a new hard drive soon but how would I benefit from an external one instead of upgrading the internal one?02:31
hfpOerHeks: That's weird. With Google's deb, when I ran apt-get update, there was no mention of Chrome. After I added a repo for chrome, then it showed in the upgradeable packages via apt-get02:32
UserUzerDoes external hdds use external power as well?02:32
hfpBashing-om: My bad, maybe it wasn't PPA, let me check02:32
daftykinshfp: the .deb is meant to add a PPA, so you'd then have to update package lists to see it perhaps - but 12.04 is getting on a bit so maybe they're giving up o002:33
OerHekschrome or chromium-browser?02:33
Bashing-omhfp: chromium ? the opensource release of google-chrome ?02:34

lotuspsychjeRedblue: why05:45
Redbluethe mate branch haven't released 14.04.3 yet (checked today)05:45

ed_1hi, i need help creating a virtual disc that links to a volume. i dont really understand it but i am trying to boot my old xp partition in ubuntu and it doesnt matter if it gets damaged, its already in the mess you may suspect12:15
Extreminadored_1 check this mate https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive12:16
ikoniaed_1: you should be able to point your virtual manager software at the physical partition12:17
ikoniathat should be enough to boot it, assuming it's not damaged beyond boot12:17
ed_1ikonia: i cant see option for that in virtualbox12:17
ikoniait should be there12:18
ikoniajust point it at /dev/sda2 or whatever your partition is12:18
ed_1i demands a virtual disk file, i read on web that you can add a link to a real disk inside that file12:19
deltthe software updater begins downloading updates and just crashes. funb.12:20
ikoniaed_1: you could just dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/home/xp.img bs=4m12:20
ikoniabut virtual box can boot a parttion12:20
TJ-ed_1: do you actually need to *boot* the XP OS, or just access its file-system?12:21
ikoniaa better question12:21
TJ-ed_1: the reason I ask is Windows core driver profile is tied to the hardware it was originally installed on; if you try to boot it in a VM it could be problematic, or cause more problems in the actualy image (due to registry changes made to reflect the VM hardware profile)12:22
momomohow do you change gedit hotkeys ?12:22
ed_1i want to actually boot the partition in virtualbox (in safe mode as graphics and network prob wont work)12:23
TJ-momomo: by not asking in several channels at the same time!12:23
TJ-ed_1: you could use Qemu, e.g: "qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1G -boot menu=on -drive format=raw,media=disk,file=/dev/sda2"12:24
ed_1tj-: that i have read, can i set up vm as close to actual machine as possible? im on toughbook, and the xp part it original12:24
TJ-ed_1: actually, you'd need "...file=/dev/sda" there so it picks up the partition table12:25
TJ-ed_1: hypervisors generally only emulate a very limited older sub-set of hardware, usually the most commonly found, so it would be unusual to be able to match a particular motherboard profile exactly12:26
ed_1going a bit fast for me!12:26

lmjHi, I want to upgrade from 12.04. As I understand things, it is best to follow the upgrade path provided by update-manager, that is, upgrade to 12.10 first, and after that upgrade again, and so forth. Is that about right?14:04
badbodhEriC^^, don;t you have to mention which /dev/sd* to swapon ? assuming no fstab entry14:04
lmjThe instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes#Upgrading_from_Ubuntu_12.04_LTS_or_Ubuntu_13.10 don't match what actually happens -- update-manager is only offering 12.10, not anything higher14:04

ikonialmj: 12.10 is EOL so won't be offered as the repos have been moved14:08
=== farid is now known as Guest72770
lmjikonia: ok thanks, so it would seem update-manager cannot upgrade from 12.04. Thus https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes#Upgrading_from_Ubuntu_12.04_LTS_or_Ubuntu_13.10 is wrong -- what should it say instead?14:10
ikonialmj: what are you trying to upgrade to14:10
TJ-lmj: ensure 12.04 is fully up-to-date and that "update-manager-core" package is installed14:11
lmjikonia: anything past 12.04 that is not EOL really. The main reason I'm upgrading is because the wireless rt3090 driver is screwed in 12.04.14:13
badbodhcame across an instance once where blkid for swap partition was wrong in fstab, and swap didn't turn on14:13
badbodhcheck fstab entry with "blkid" output for mismatch?14:13
badbodhlmj, your upgrade manager will determine and let you know which ubuntu version to upgrade. if you checked "lts only" , you get 14.04, else whatever current version14:13
badbodhwhat does it show now ?14:13
=== Lihis_ is now known as Lihis
TJ-lmj: check what this reports: "grep Prompt /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades"14:13
TJ-lmj: it ought to be 'lts' but if it says 'normal' that explains why it's trying 12.1014:14
ikonialmj: so 14.04 should be your upgrade path14:15
lmjTJ-: the grep returns nothing. I don't see where to check "lts only". Is it in update-manager?14:15
TJ-lmj: that explains part of the problem than. do "cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades | termbin.com 9999"14:16
TJ-lmj: sorry, typo there! do "cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades | nc termbin.com 9999"14:16
lmjTJ-: that gives me the link http://termbin.com/artp14:17
EriC^^maybe he doesn't have it installed?14:17
=== Guest93813 is now known as jero
TJ-lmj: which contains "prompt=normal" - not sure why it is a lowercase 'p' either14:18
EriC^^maybe he edited it manually14:18
ikoniais this even an ubuntu install ?14:18
TJ-lmj: "sudo sed -i 's/prompt=normal/Prompt=lts/' /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades "14:18
lmjTJ-: lowercase "prompt" gives me "prompt=normal" for the grep14:18
ikoniaI've seen elementary and mint both screw up these sort of things14:18
lmj(I realize I could have passed -i, just following instructions exactly.)14:19
ikonialmj: is this actually an ubuntu install, ? or is it some derivative, like mint or elemtentary14:19
TJ-lmj: right, I have a 12.04 example I'm looking at and it uses "Prompt=..."14:19
lmjikonia: it's generic ubuntu, not even kubuntu or whatever14:20
ikoniaso a standard default 12.04 ubuntu install14:20
lmjit sounds like I just need to find where to check "lts only". Where is it supposed to be?14:21
TJ-lmj: after the 'sed' operation try "/usr/lib/update-manager/check-new-release"14:21
TJ-lmj: that 'sed' operation just wrote in the correct entry to the file14:21
TJ-lmj: you should see "New release '14.04.3 LTS' available."14:22
lmjthis returns nothing: sudo sed -i 's/prompt=normal/Prompt=lts/i' /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades14:23
lmjso does this: sudo sed -i 's/prompt=normal/Prompt=lts/i' /usr/lib/update-manager/check-new-release14:23
lmj(added the /i just in case)14:24
TJ-lmj: it is re-writing the file, no output expected14:24
TJ-lmj: "cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades" you'll see "Prompt=lts"14:25
TJ-lmj: and with that alternate command you just did you've potentially corrupted the check-new-release exectuable!14:25
lmjTJ-: ok re-launching update-manger now offeres 14.04.3! I think you did it!14:25
lmjthanks a bunch14:25
TJ-lmj:  I know I did it - but what did you do!?!14:25
lmjTJ-: I don't think I've ever launched update-manager before. I've only stuck with 12.04 and upgraded everything via 'apt-get update' / 'apt-get upgrade'14:27
TJ-lmj:   I meant by your adapting the command I gave you without understanding what it does! This "sudo sed -i 's/prompt=normal/Prompt=lts/i' /usr/lib/update-manager/check-new-release" will try to make changes to 'check-new-release' ! Consider yourself lucky the search phrase doesn't exist in that file, else you'd have broken it14:28

pike-c-codesomeone able to tell my why this one creates a memory access violation? http://pastebin.com/RPATKzuS14:38
pike-c-codeits in c14:38
TJ-pike-c-code: depends on the code-path, but you're not testing for new_elem == NULL before using it14:40
TJ-pike-c-code: when in doubt run it via a debugger so you can see the stack trace and interactively examine it14:40
c0m0you need to allocate memory for new element if the list is empty14:40
pike-c-codenow i did this in another function14:42
pike-c-codethis one just gets the new element and the first element14:42
TJ-pike-c-code: the ##programming channel is more apprpriate for that; this is for Ubuntu support14:42
pike-c-codeyeah i asked there14:42
pike-c-codethey're talking about midlife crisis or sth like this14:43
pike-c-codeidk, but you might be much more helpful :D14:43
pike-c-codesince i need to upload my correct tool within the next 17min14:43
TJ-you asked here before you asked there... and ##programming, or a C/C++ channel is the appropriate place14:44

NOW, i removed the physical HDD from the old box, putted it in the NEW one as a secundary drive, still not attemped to mount it or anything, but now i need to mount it, copy it’s data to the new drive and get it over with.. how can i mount another /root of another drive, in /OLDROOT for15:26

daftykinswhen you want to mount the OS partition of a Windows install as rw from Linux, and that Windows is v8 or v10 with hybrid shutdown, you should issue "shutdown -s -t 1" before booting into the Linux :)15:39
daftykinsthat doesn't help you now, but it will for future reference15:39

LiI didn't have anything on that partition15:41
daftykinswell, show us the mount commands you've been trying so far and their error output15:41
TJ-Li: Windows didn't finalise the file-system so it's in an indeterminate state, until Windows has flushed cache stored in the hibernation file and played out the journal log15:41
daftykinswhy do you even need to do it if it's a clean install o015:41
Lidaftykins: i wanted to use that hdd as temp storage15:42
OerHekswin8.1 .. sounds like exfat to me, that would not mount automaticly, use fuse for that > sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils15:42
daftykinsLi: then the answer is to close those programs and do it properly :)15:42
daftykinsOerHeks: not if it's the win8 install partition15:43

daftykinsyou refusing to just reboot and sort it out properly15:47

daftykinsjophish__: ok so you're in the same boat, hybrid graphics yeah? i would boot to the recovery option, root console, remount the disk as read+write, purge nvidia* then reinstall nvidia-352 and nvidia-prime17:17
tilpnerdaftykins - The package I need to install requires libglu1-mesa:i386, which indirectly depends on 32 bit nouveau drivers.17:17

OerHeksoh dear, i am glad i do not run ubuntu-gnome but unity19:07
TheAmorphousNo chance of mdadm overwriting superblocks or messing up the array in any other way?19:08
daftykinsOerHeks: :D agreed19:08
ubuntu505unity is insecure with all its lense crapola I hear19:08
daftykinsTheAmorphous: i don't see why it would write anything without being instructed to do so19:08
TheAmorphousSo I'd just tell mdadm to rebuild the array under a new installation and it gets all the data it needs from those 4 HDDs?19:08
daftykinsTheAmorphous: fwiw i also manage RAID setups under server and use the above approach for version migration happily19:08
daftykinsyou don't need to rebuild at all, the RAID volume is perfectly happy as it is - you just install mdadm tools within the new install, the volume becomes visible, you add it to /etc/fstab and job done19:09
daftykinsbut then all of this is assuming 14.04 even performs any different for you from a live session :)19:09

MoPacHello. I've been wondering for a while what is going on with the unity dash search when I pull it up and start typing. There doesn't seem to be any consistent behavior, especially from the "home" tab. Sometimes it is near-instant and sometimes crawls. Sometimes it's finding both apps and files (desired), sometimes only one.19:12
MoPacAnd often, I can start (or even finish) typing the name of something (especially an app), and it won't be found -- indefinitely. But if I backspace a character or two, suddenly it may show up -- even though all the characters were a perfect match. Is this kind of behavior common?19:12
TheAmorphousdaftykins: Would it matter if the new install is Debian and not Ubuntu?  mdadm shouldn't care, right?19:14

littlebearTheAmorphous: in the worse case you can do dd=if and see if writing directly to your array have ok persistent speed, then use a network flood test to see network issue, then if it's neither check the software then check hardware19:30

* ubuntu505 I am curious, I have Ubuntu-Gnome 15.10 installed and recently I noticed I get this annoying tray icon at the bottom left, even when "hidden" it is still there and thus makes using the Terminal window VERY hard if I am at the bottom of the screen. How do I extirpate this menue or relocate it (extirpation is preferential frankly)? Why is it the Ubuntu-Gnome live doesn't seem to have this rotten "feature" and my installed Ub19:31
fearnothingI'm having a bit of trouble, just trying to set up a computer for my parents and need something that can do pitch shifts on audio. Audacity looked like the best result, but it won't launch without sudo19:32
fearnothinganyone encountered this?19:32
littlebearfearnothing: can't you edit visudo and put NOPASSWD19:33
littlebearthen write a audicity.sh that calls sudo /usr/bin/audicity or something similar19:33
akikfearnothing: what error do you get starting audacity without sudo?19:34
akikfearnothing: there are lots of things you could check about your setup at http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Linux_Issues19:36
TheAmorphouslittlebear: It definitely doesn't seem to be a network issue as transfers to/from the local SSD and RAID are also really slow.  Also, when I put an old SSD in with a new installation of Ubuntu transfers to/from it were fine over the LAN.19:37

SlidingHornubuntu505, what icon are you talking about?  Could you please describe it?19:38
ubuntu505sure! Its a small left to right pop-out tray of some sort19:38
ubuntu505it has blueproximity in it19:38
MonkeyDustubuntu505  or show a screenshot, on imgur.com19:38
OerHeksthere is a whole reddit post about that, https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/32byhw/gnome_316_remove_message_tray_on_bottom_left_of/ without solution19:38
ubuntu505yeah I read that but was not sure they were talking about the same problem I was having19:39
littlebearTheAmorphous: the only thing I can think of is maybe mdadm reports that you are rebuilding the array hence the slow transfer or it wasn't configurered correctly? Not sure19:39
ubuntu505TheAmorphous: have you played around with ZFS for linux? Might be worth looking at it19:40
TheAmorphousmdadm is reporting everything is "clean"19:40
TheAmorphousHah, I was actually just reading up on ZFS19:40
TheAmorphousThe hardware requirements seem crazy for negligible benefits on a home media server19:40
ubuntu505It allows you to move the entire FS to an external HD then remove the internal one, then you could upgrade and "add it and move it back" after19:40
=== Ragnar is now known as Guest15294
ubuntu505Is there a solution for the remove_message_tray issue?19:41
ubuntu505Where did it come from? I never had a tray like that before19:41
TheAmorphousAfter discussing with daftykins and rypervenche I think I've narrowed my options down to 1.) installing new Ubuntu on a different SSD and re-mounting the existing RAID array, or 2.) building a whole new box with new drives and transferring everything over.19:41
ubuntu505and ubuntu-gnome "live" does not have it19:41
ubuntu505TheAmorphous: might I suggest something?19:42
littlebearTheAmorphous: before I give up, what RAID are you running, 5,6 or 10?19:42
TheAmorphous2. seems to be the safest and most surefire way of not having further issues.  Kinda pricy though.19:42
ubuntu505TheAmorphous: How big is your raid (in GBs)19:42
TheAmorphousRAID5 via mdadm19:42
TheAmorphous12TB total, 9 usuable under RAID519:42
littlebearTheAmorphous: hm. RAID5 let me google to see if there's anything on a failed parity19:42
littlebearafaik RAID5 only have 1 parity whereas raid 6 have 2 parity19:43
ubuntu505Do you have a full backup of it on tape or alternate DASD devices?19:43
TheAmorphousA RAID issue wouldn't cause the SSD to have transfer rate issues too right?19:43
TheAmorphousNo backups, no19:43
ubuntu505This is the first problem you must resolve! :)19:43
TheAmorphousThe strangest part about this is I'm on a 100mb internet connection but can only download at 1.1MBps on that box now.  I usually get 9-10MBps.19:43
MonkeyDustTheAmorphous  always have a backup, even if you don't need it immediately19:44
TheAmorphousLAN transfers are usually 100MBps, but cap at exactly 11.1MBps now19:44
fearnothingakik: #audacity people recommend not using audacity on linux :P19:44
rypervencheTheAmorphous: RAID is not a backup solution. You shourd invest in backups if the data is valuable to you.19:44
littlebearTheAmorphous: that box? so even in ramdisk /tmp it's still stuck at 1.1Mbps?19:44
fearnothingthat said, does anyone have a suggestion for a decent alternative that allows you to pitch shift audio files?19:44
ubuntu505100MBps is theoretical and all network hardware has its own specs/implementations19:44
TheAmorphousNo, I mean I literally used to get 100MBps real world transfers from that box to the SSD on my desktop over a gigabit LAN19:45
ubuntu505anyone know how to solve my message tray problem??19:45
TheAmorphousNow I get 11.1MBps19:45
ubuntu505or why it doesn't exist in the ubuntu-gnome live environment??19:45
littlebearTheAmorphous: how are you transferring it? try aria2c and do parallel dl19:45

ubuntu505I learned a nice rule from my maid recently...always tell customers: "I don't do Windows"...19:46
littlebearTheAmorphous: on windows, do you have a filezilla or winscp and can use ssh to download it without samba19:46
littlebearI just wanted to isolate windows from the equation xD19:46
TheAmorphousWell right now my primary concern is download speeds19:46
UnwantedAngelkiss kiss bang bang19:47
TheAmorphousDownloading large files for work (or from anywhere) to that Ubuntu box directly used to get 9-10MBps on a 100Mb internet connection.  Now they download at exactly 1.1MBps.19:47
ubuntu505The first thing I am curious about is what difference there is between the ubuntu-gnome "live" environment that this try never shows up19:47
ubuntu505very odd19:47
ubuntu505then I could remove the package causing it?19:47
akikfearnothing: if you run "aplay /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav" do you hear it?19:48
TheAmorphousWhen I ran the newer version of Ubuntu on an old SSD I was able to download at 10MBps again.19:48
ubuntu505try hdparm -I /dev/sdd_device19:48
ubuntu505look at the results from both the old and new variants of Ubuntu19:48
fearnothingakik, gimme a minute, will test19:48
ubuntu505are they both putting the device in the same mode?19:48

SonikkuAmericabekks: I used the jockey plugin from software-properties-gtk (the "Additional Drivers" tab in Software and Updates)19:50

SonikkuAmericabekks: Got it. (How that never occurred to me, I don't think I'll ever now.)19:51

MoPacAnd often, I can start (or even finish) typing the name of something (especially an app), and it won't be found -- indefinitely. But if I backspace a character or two, suddenly it may show up -- even though all the characters were a perfect match. Is this kind of behavior common?20:12

Cinnamongood day everyone, I had the following strange case with usb drive: it was decrypted and mounted, and a file on it was opened. then I couldnt save the file because the folders were suddenly shown with a lock symbol. and then the same folders became shown as empty (more correctly, the subfolders were disappearing each time I went to a parent folder). at the same time the drive was shown as locked (encrypted) back, without me having done anything,20:53
Cinnamon yet was also shown as a second additional partition mounted at '/dev/mapper/luks..' (where the folders disappeared) I was not able to decrypt the drive again at this moment, even though the password was correct. then I restarted the machine, and this time decryption was possible, and all files and folders were there, yet as 'read-only'...can someone please help me know what happened or what this all might be about?20:53
MonkeyDustCinnamon  an encrypted drive?20:54
CinnamonMonkeyDust, yes, it is a luks drive20:54
jwtiyarMonkeyDust, i selected sizes so all big are in last so i want select from smallest big to biggest size this will not work just by holding mouse and going down to last one its one by one i have to click each picture because there is no in the place to start the selection by mouse20:55
MonkeyDustjwtiyar  and the view is set to 'icons'?20:56
SlidingHornjwtiyar, right click somewhere in the space between folders & go to Arrange items > sort by size?20:56

TJ-Cinnamon: reading up on your experience I'd suspect the USB device had an I/O error which caused the underlying raw device to become unavailable, and the GUI tools saw a cached version of the file system, which is why directories/files 'disappeared' once the tools needed to re-read the device21:10

jwtiyarhow i can upgrade by USB ?21:17
AlexPortableHow do I get the /etc/hosts file to actually work?21:19
TJ-Cinnamon: I'd check /var/log/kern.log around the time the issue happened, and work backwards in the log, for any indication of events related to the USB mass storage device21:19
TJ-Cinnamon: read-only mount would likely be due to file-system errors causing a remount,ro option to take effect21:20

TJ-Cinnamon: "usb 1-1: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci" would be the device disconnecting. Everything else would stem from that.21:55

daftykinsExagone313: can you state "cat /etc/issue" and also "apt-cache policy sqlite3" ?22:02
daftykinsGazorpazorp: i tend to stick to LTS to avoid upgrades :) never believed in them22:02
cotixIs there a way to report bugs when you dont run ubuntu?22:04
Gazorpazorpdaftykins: they mostly broke a lot of things, system was very unstable afterwards back then. Only release upgrade that really was perfect is debian wheezy to jessie22:04
daftykinscotix: how would you know of any? :)22:04
Gazorpazorpcotix: either to the developer of the package or your distros people22:05
cotixI had to install Ubuntu server, and the installation process was horrible22:05
cotixIts the ubuntu installer22:05

zzo38How do I check if newer Ubuntu packages are compatible with my computer without damaging anything?22:31
zzo38I want to install the newer SQLite and Swiss Ephemeris packages22:31
zzo38(My computer does not even have a Swiss Ephemeris package)22:32
badbodhstick to official repos, compatibility ensured22:32
zzo38I think it is the official Ubuntu packages, but it is a newer version of Ubuntu.22:33
badbodhwhich version ?22:34
bpromptzzo38:    make a backup, try the newer package :), if it's a no-go, then put the backup back :)22:34
badbodhbtw regular softwares don;t need to be compatible to your hardware in general. drivers and kernels need to be compatible22:34
zzo38I want the newest versions of SQLite and Swiss Ephemeris. However I have SQLite version 3.8.11 and Ubuntu version 12.04.5.LTS22:35
daftykinsno wonder they're old :)22:35
zzo38This software I don't to worry about the hardware compatibility but I want to ensure it is compatible with the software I have on my computer!22:36
sylwekwhat abaut ISIS22:37
bpromptzzo38:    as badbodh suggested, stick to the repositories.... latest for 12.04 is 2.8.17   as far as I can tell, so, 3.8.11 may need newer libraries that may be shared by other packages that may not be compatible with it, either that, or 3.8.11 simply won't install22:37
badbodhif you want latest and greatest all the time switch to a rolling release distro. ubuntu freezes its packages before release to ensure nothing breaks and keeps receiving security updates.22:38
zzo38Yes that's what I wanted to know about. Is it better if I just compile those program by myself?22:38
badbodhthen you may break dependencies. compile at your own risk.22:38

regumHow can I revert to the good old days?22:41
daftykinsregum: you'd find it far easier to clean install i should think, what package?22:41
badbodhregum, remove the debian package22:41
regumbadbodh, userland22:42
regumdaftykins, that is an option, but I'd rather try to fix it, it's extremely tedious to fresh install22:42
bpromptzzo38:     it depends on what the packages uses, if 3.8.11 is simplly going to update the libraries for 2.8.17, and not touch any other shared libraries by other packages, then, sure, compiling it and installing from there would work, but often times that's not true for newer packages, they may require newer versions of some shared library, that may break other package(s)22:42
zzo38They always ensure to make it compatible. Also this package manager does not even have Swiss Ephemeris so I think no program depend on that package. I would prefer to install the package but if I cannot I could install by myself, but then I might get a extra copy22:42
=== JanC_ is now known as JanC
zzo38I am pretty sure that SQLite does not require newer versions of some shared library and break others, but that might not necessarily be true of the Ubuntu package for SQLite; I don't really understand all of these Ubuntu package22:44
badbodhregum, once you remove the 'debian package' you speak of, you can do "sudo apt-get install -f" to fix22:44
regumbadbodh, I'll try that now22:44

daftykinsno charger?22:48
daftykinsGazorpazorp: given how cheap they are i wouldn't put much effort toward it personally.22:48
daftykinsGazorpazorp: you could try sharing the output of "sudo parted -l" which is slightly different to fdisk, or just try sending some data to it to kill the partition table22:49
regumbadbodh, it didn't fix it22:49
Gazorpazorpdaftykins, the battery is dead dead. Lithium battery that was empty at -5°C. Yes, just bought a bunch of them, but they propably arrive on monday22:49

regumbadbodh, it's a camera that doesn't work, it did before, but I wanted to use a package with it and it now won't work as it did before22:52
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: why do you think it's the motherboard and not the graphics card (if there is one) or the CPU itself? or why overheating at all?22:53
LonelyDanboI thought maybe the games were due to it being through Wine and somehow it's not going directly to the video card, because I'm... not sure Wine does ... is it nVidia that's the alternative of ... I got the one that's better with AMD.22:53

daftykinsLonelyDanbo: i would say it'd be handy if you could try another OS on this same system if possible (such as a temporary Windows install on a spare hard disk) which would help point the trouble away from software, but i would be more inclined to think it's PSU related (power supply)23:11

daftykinsLonelyDanbo: discussion on Windows isn't apt for this channel, it is a suggestion which will let you isolate the problem quickly (assuming you know how to set up Windows) so it's up to you.23:14
utu8oi'm surprised that Android has way more user friendly apps than Ubuntu even though Ubuntu started long before Android and apps are also free... i guess Android is more friendly towards app developers23:15

jophish__I've booted with 15.10 at least once before23:17
daftykinsjophish__: ok can you pastebin "ls -al /boot" ?23:17
jophish__sure thing23:17
daftykinsbadbodh: ones that don't support the UVC standard23:17
jophish__http://termbin.com/lms3 daftykins23:17
badbodhdaftykins, that means "not my bloody job - yours faithfully, ubuntu"23:18
daftykinsbadbodh: no, it means "Linux works well with cameras that support the UVC standard"23:19
LonelyDanboI had been reading about how to use nVidia graphics cards in Wine with my games and I got the impression that ... it doesn't work properly. changing settings to Direct3D allows it to fully utilize features. So I figured all graphics were running through the system instead of directly to the video card.23:19
dotpixisdepends on the system23:19
badbodhwell, we need standards23:19
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: try a Linux native game, to rule out wine, or try Windows as i mentioned.23:19
daftykinsbadbodh: we have them - and the one you bought does not adhere to them.23:19
dotpixisas linus torvald said "Fuck you Nvida"23:19
LonelyDanbohm. native Linux game.23:20
daftykinsjophish__: you can run "sudo apt-get autoremove" to get rid of that -16 kernel23:20
LonelyDanbohah. well it's a bit late for me to replace all my hardware.23:20
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: yeah, do you have a steam account?23:20
badbodhdotpixis, at least use **** when quoting the big guy23:20
LonelyDanbono Steam.23:20
badbodhyou'd be kicked otherwise23:20
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: nobody suggested replacing hardware just yet :)23:20
dotpixisbadbodh: okay, i'm not gonna curse, but i'm not one to change a quote...23:21
badbodhfeel free to censor a quote23:21
badbodhwe got kids here. leaves bad impression23:22
jophish__daftykins: interestingly now I'm not getting a cursor, which I only seemed to get while running the nvidia driver23:22
dotpixisi won't be quoteing Samuel L. Jackson here...23:22
jasabellais ubuntu expert install supposed to autodetect network settings?!23:22
daftykinsjasabella: can you be more specific, which ISO are you using?23:23
daftykinsdotpixis: please take the chat to #ubuntu-offtopic :) this channel is for support only23:23
badbodhshould detect ethernet, not sure about wi-fi23:23
daftykinsjophish__: did you run that command and reboot already? there wasn't any need to.23:24
jophish__daftykins: there's not too much else I can do at the moment :)23:25
daftykinsjophish__: can you remind me of the laptop make + model?23:25
daftykinsyes but when you take too long to get back to me after a simple command, you take too long23:25
daftykinser, heh repeated myself.23:25

jophish__sure, it's a dell xps 15 9530, daftykins http://termbin.com/abfk23:26
jophish__that's dmidecode23:27
=== shaky is now known as shaky705
daftykinsjophish__: do you have a service tag you could share at all? feel free to PM it since it's a tad more sensitive, or i'll try and fudge my way through the Dell site if you'd rather not.23:27
jophish__daftykins: I'm happy to navigate sites, although I'm not sure what to look for23:30
daftykinsyeah it's kinda quicker for me to do direct :)23:31
LonelyDanboI've been having trouble with my old DVD drive. It uses IDE instead of SATA. I was hoping this new motherboard that actually supports old IDE would fix the issue because I had to use an external card on the last motherboard. A DVD disc I put in is not showing up on the left sidebar thing.23:31
daftykinsjophish__: so just the one kernel is in /boot now, so we've got that covered...23:31
jophish__daftykins: yup23:32
LonelyDanboHm... I have something called "sr0". Any chance that's my DVD drive?23:33
daftykinsjophish__: can you run "dpkg -l | grep bumble" and tell me if it gives any result / nothing?23:33
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: it is, sr0 = optical drive23:33
jophish__daftykins: nothing23:33
LonelyDanbook. good. So ... maybe the drive is just dead.23:33
jophish__optimus, prime, bumblebee, I'm detecting a pattern here23:34
daftykinsjophish__: good stuff, can you try the second section in the reply for: http://askubuntu.com/questions/691946/how-to-solve-black-screen-problem-after-installing-nvidia-drivers-on-ubuntu-15-123:34
daftykinsyeah hybrid graphics on Linux is not easy.23:34
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: possibly, if the BIOS could boot an ubuntu DVD in there, that'd prove it or not potentially23:34
jophish__daftykins: install the packages from the graphics-drivers ppa?23:35
LonelyDanbohm... sudo lshw -C disk reported a -cdrom status=nodisc. :(23:35
daftykinsjophish__: yeah the three commands then reboot suggested, adding the PPA... installing nvidia-355 and nvidia-prime blah blah23:35
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: it's possible the jumper setting on your drive is not in the correct position for the point the ribbon cable plugged into it is at.23:37
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: since PATA ribbons have 3 points, a jumper setting of 'master' must be at the end of the cable, 'slave' is the middle - and 'CSEL' or cable select can be either.23:37
LonelyDanbodaftykins, would a slave/master difference stop it from reporting a disc is present? I used this before. I thought even in a *nix OS.23:37
daftykinswouldn't hurt to check, but if it were wrong your BIOS would not detect the drive23:38
LonelyDanboI think under CrunchBang. on a really ancient motherboard.23:38
LonelyDanbobut Ubuntu reports I have the drive.23:38
daftykinsyeah, it's a weak try but worth a mention.23:38
daftykinsanyway as i said boot media would rule out it being ubuntu23:38
LonelyDanbohuh. So a small possibility that Ubuntu could detect it despite the BIOS not detecting it, and this might cause it to be unable to read discs23:39
LonelyDanboare you sure northbridge chipsets heatsyncs are supposed to be so hot you can't hold your finger on it for more than a few seconds?23:40
daftykinsno you just need to fault find from the lower levels first :>23:40
jophish__daftykins: I'm sorry to report no change :(23:40
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: 100% sure... 20 years of hardware experience behind that comment.23:40
daftykinsjophish__: did you say you've got Windows on a dual boot setup on here?23:40
jophish__daftykins: yeah there's a windows installation23:41
daftykinsjophish__: nice, ok did you see the comments beneath that post on the askubuntu page?23:41
LonelyDanboI wish I could hook up a jumper cable from the chipset to my CPU heatsync. It's actually warming the CPU heatsync on the corner closest to it.23:41
daftykinsone user says "i had to use nvidia-352 instead" and also "i had to run sudo prime-select intel before reboot"23:41
jophish__daftykins: so you're thinking it is some hardware switch23:41
jophish__that got set to some odd value when I did the REISUB23:42
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: i think you need to stop running your hands over everything :P you do know about static right?23:42
daftykinsjophish__: no not even close :)23:42
jophish__hah, ok!23:42
LonelyDanbostatic's bad even on heatsyncs?23:42
daftykinswell you're poking your hands around in there ;)23:43
LonelyDanboI heard PC parts weren't that sensitive to static, and that people paranoid about touching components and connectors with their hands was all for nothing most of the time.23:44
GazorpazorpLonelyDanbo, daftykins: On new and important computers or those I handle for other people I am more paranoid about static23:44
LonelyDanboRick & Morty reference name.23:45
GazorpazorpLonelyDanbo, daftykins: For my old parts and tinkerstuff I dont give a damn about static and it never resulted in any problems23:45
jophish__daftykins: this is my xorg.failsafe.log http://termbin.com/3kki From my googling this seems to be symptomatic of an issue with the intel driver23:45
daftykinsjophish__: have you been in the EFI and checked whether there are any graphics options for picking device / anything at all?23:46
daftykinsLonelyDanbo: yes and no, carelessness can definitely cost23:46
daftykinsand some people are more staticy than others (seriously)23:47
jophish__daftykins: checking now23:47
GazorpazorpLonelyDanbo, daftykins: a lot of intel laptop boards have their cpu safety shutoff temp at 100°C, with an EC that doesnt really bother to turn up the fan before 90°C23:47
daftykinsGazorpazorp: LonelyDanbo's is an AMD system.23:47
bpromptLonelyDanbo:     had a flatbed scanner once, the twain drivers were saying that there was some error, I checked the cabling, scanner was fine, cable was fine, reloaded the drivers, OS was fine, and the twain drivers were still throwing the connection error, in the end the fix was, "unplug the usb cable from the pc for 30secs, plug it back in", then it worked, issue was built-up static in the cable plug23:47
=== nefarious is now known as Guest15824
jophish__daftykins: nothing in the bios23:47
GazorpazorpLonelyDanbo, daftykins: and the worst ones have cpu and gpu on the same heatpipe while the gpu cant handle 90-100 that good23:47
daftykinsjophish__: ok, did you try purging the 355, trying again with the 352 and issuing the earlier prime-select command before reboot?23:48
daftykinsGazorpazorp: that'd be a laptop, this is a desktop - totally irrelevant i'm afraid.23:49
jophish__daftykins: I tried that without installing the older driver, trying the purge/reinstall now23:50
=== trisquel is now known as Guest22033
GazorpazorpLonelyDanbo, daftykins: my amd 890fx board with fan and extra southbridge heatpipe. it is roomtemp on the board itself, the cpu goes from 40-70°C depending on fan setting and the heatsinks get hot but not burning hot23:50
bumblefuzzso, I'm using an apple magic mouse23:52
daftykinsi understand your input, but you might be in the antarctic whilst LonelyDanbo could be in $somewhere_hot :)23:52
bumblefuzzand I'm trying to set up natural scrolling23:52
LonelyDanboNah. I'm in Canada.23:52
daftykinsthe specifics miss the point ;)23:52
bumblefuzzit works fine with the trackpad but I can't get ther mouse to do natural scrolling23:52
LonelyDanboMaybe I need to get my case fan blowing in the side, half of it hitting the northbridge heatsync.23:53
daftykinscase cooling is always important, yes23:53
LonelyDanbothen maybe move the CPU fan on the other side closer to the exhaust port so I don't have to put a 2nd case fan blowing out.23:53
LonelyDanboI hear exhaust is more important than input23:54
daftykinshowever spending time on this hypothesis of yours when i've provided steps to take to fault find, is really just wasting all of our time23:54
daftykinsdon't mess with the fan on the heatsink, also take this topic to ##hardware if you wouldn't mind23:55
LonelyDanboI installed Steam but I need to make an account.23:55
jophish__hmm, booting is taking a lot longer this time23:55
Austin__WallHaving a weird issue where text is partially missing on some menus23:55
LonelyDanboNative Linux game {Steam} or Windows was your suggestion.23:56
Austin__WallRunning ubuntu 15.0423:56
daftykinsAustin__Wall: graphics hardware + driver?23:57
Austin__WallI'm using the default ubuntu graphics driver. I had the nvidia one but after a reboot the system was unable to find any screens23:58
daftykinsah har, can you share a "lspci | nc termbin.com 9999" ? it'll create a URL to paste here.23:58
