xixik1l_: http://pastebin.ca/331607800:26
Ben64xheart: you can use dd to write the image directly to the device, which will delete anything on the usb00:26
xhearti am not using windows00:26

xhearti just copy/paste the file to the usb?00:26
xixiHow do I remove them?00:26
Ben64xheart: no that won't work. you can use a usb creator thing, the name of which escapes me currently00:26

anabainxheart, if you're using 14.04 you only have to create a bootable usb stick using 15.10 iso image. there's an app designed to do so: startup disk creator (at least this is the name on kubuntu 15.10)00:30
xixik1l_: Can I pm you?00:31
k1l_you can ask in here. so others can help too00:31
xhearti have 14.04 ok so i need startup disk creator00:31
xixiI've followed that00:31
xixiit wont let me install00:31
xixisudo apt-get install ppa-purge00:31
Ben64xheart: you could use dd, but startup disk creator should work too00:31
anabainxheart, try writing "usb" on your pc search engine00:32
k1l_ah right, you are on that old ubuntu that doesnt ship ppa-purge00:32
xhearti see the disk creator00:32

anabainxheart, then create the usb stick by selecting the iso image and the right storage device (be careful about that)00:34

xheartit is kind of slow00:35

anabainxheart, you'll have to wait a minute or so, and perhaps you'll be prompted to enter your password in order to be able to install the boot loader.00:35

xixiI don't get why it is still doing that even thouh ppa is gone00:38
k1l_xixi: please stop00:38
k1l_xixi: you used the wrong page (not the one the bot linked) to install ppa-purge. then you have your package system messed up using multiple PPAs that refer to same packages but in differen states.00:39

xheartfailed to install the bootloader on the usb00:52
xhearti see it did install a few folders on the usb00:54
[Mew2]guys can someone help me pleasE?00:54
[Mew2]have a couple different questions00:54
xheartit installed folder boot, casper, dists, install, isolinux, pics,pool, preseed, .disk, md5sum.txt and readmediskdefines. will that be enough to install 15.10 on another pc?00:55
anabainxheart, most probably not00:57
daftykinsxheart: are you trying to extract an ISO's contents onto a FAT formatted flash drive?00:57
xhearti did not format the usb00:57
daftykinsthen what are you using?00:57
anabainxheart, it's very strange. Startup disk creator is quite safe00:58
daftykins'install' sounds like the wrong word00:58
xhearti erased the usb and started the disk creator,00:58
xheartiif i format the usb what format should i use?00:58
OerHekswhat makes you think it did not install the bootloader?00:58
xhearti got a window saying so00:59
anabainxheart, did you enter your passwd when prompted to do so, in the middle of the process?01:00
xhearti see it is fat32 on gparted01:00
anabainxheart, you could try formating again using gparted, just in case01:02
anabainxheart, then repeat the process01:02
xhearti do not see where i can format it01:03
anabainxheart, you have to right-click the partition info line and then select "format"01:06
anabainxheart, btw, I assume your 14.04 system is updated01:07
xheartit is not letting me, it is grey01:07
xheartyes i am using 14.04lts01:07
anabainxheart, first you have to unmount it01:08
anabainxheart, but 14.04 has also updates, you should perform this at the terminal: sudo apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade01:09
xheartthe pc i want to install 15.10 had windows but i only want ubuntu01:09
xheartthis pc runs great with 14.04lts01:10
xheartok it did format!01:11
anabainxheart, good01:11
anabainnow you can wipe W$ and install 15.1001:11
xheartok i started the process again. it is a 8gb but it only shows 7.5gb01:13
anabainxheart, anyway, it's advisable to perform updates on your 14.04 system. Many of them are security/bug related.01:13
xheartthis pc says the system is up to date01:13
anabainxheart, good01:13
xheartor should i check throught the terminal?01:14
anabainxheart, don't worry about the 7.5gb01:14
anabainxheart, it's normal. Formatted drives show less space.01:14

xheartok. thank you for help, we tried.01:38
MooseGutsLike the files play but no sound come out.01:39
MooseGutsI plug in headphones and I get static/garble.01:39
daftykinsis it actually ubuntu on the chromebook or something like chrubuntu / chroot methods?01:39
MooseGutsThis is native not chroot01:39
MooseGutsPure regular ubuntu. Not chrubuntu.01:40
Tojilnice, I'm back01:40
MooseGutsI followed. A tutorial for getting sound to work and it still doesn't work.01:40
MooseGutsWhich included grabbing some intel firmware and an asound.state file.01:40
anabainxheart, be *extremely* careful about determining the /dev/sdX . Make sure that you choose the one that matches your actual USB stick. If you get it wrong, you'll ruin all data on the mistaken device. You've been warned.01:41
MooseGutsI think the asound.state file must be for a different model of toshiba chromebook 2. Mine is cb35-b3333001:41

Eirikrhello all :) I just now changed the driver from the open-source ati driver to fglrx (in an attempt of speeding up things a bit) and then realizing it wa a bit slower i changed back to the open source graphics driver and now everything is suuuuuuper slow! what can i do?02:10
daftykinsconfirm your method of switching - also what is your test for defining speed?02:10
Eirikr@daftykins method of switching was with the additional drivers application that follows and the test was to check if the slowness (and jaggyness) of firefox had something to do with the graphics driver02:12
Eirikrrebotted twice02:12
daftykinsok so desktop effects and so on02:14

lotuspsychjexixi: its not reccomended to install package versions that dont belong to your ubuntu version04:29
lotuspsychjexixi: uninstall all ppa's from system first04:29
xixiHow do I do that?04:29
lotuspsychje!ppapurge | xixi04:29
ubottuxixi: To disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html04:29
xixiSorry, so many noob questions I typically don't work with servers, so I appreciate it.04:29

lotuspsychje!latest | xixi this is why04:42
ubottuxixi this is why: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.04:42
xixiSo how do I backtrack what I did, and go back to 5.3?04:43
xixiSince I may have screwed things up?04:43
lotuspsychjexixi: you added a ppa or installed manual, so you need to remove that or purge ppa's04:45
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA?

azuri5is there a particular reason why ubuntu 14.04.3 shows 15.04 (and not 15.10) as the latest normal upgradable version?06:33
lotuspsychjeazuri5: its not reccomended to upgrade LTS to non-lts06:33
lotuspsychjeazuri5: clean install if you want to switch06:34
cfhowlettazuri5, direct answer: 15.40 is the next upgradeable version from 14.04.  if you want 15.10 from upgrade you must do 15.04 first.06:34
azuri5@lotuspsychje okay06:34
fatemeHi every one, what is at-spi at linux mint and what is usage?06:37
ubottuLinux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org06:38
Flannelcfhowlett, azuri5: No, that's not correct.  One must go through 14.10 to get to 15.04.  You can't just go 14.04 to 15.04.  (But you will be able to go 14.04 directly to 16.04 when it's released in April)06:39
cfhowlettFlannel, doh!  right.  sorry for misinformation.06:39
fatemei have process: usr/lib/at-spi2-core/at-spi-bus-launcher06:39
cfhowlettazuri5, and as has been suggested: LTS only is the way to go for most people.06:40
rwwfateme: ask Mint's support channel. they are not us.06:40
Flannelcfhowlett, azuri5: and 14.10 is EOL, so there's some minor manual tweaking required there to get onto/off of it.06:40
azuri5LTS has *really* old versions for some packages, but i understand that is by design06:41
lotuspsychje!latest | azuri506:41
ubottuazuri5: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea.

cfhowlettazuri5, bleeding edge = bloody edge.  Absent a very specific need for the latest, greatest shiny package, stick with LTS for far fewer headaches.06:42

cfhowlettrodney77, why?08:23
somsip!mainline | rodney7708:23
ubotturodney77: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds08:23
rodney77cfhowlett, because i'm running reaper over wine and I want to try to get my latency down without getting xruns in jack08:23
cfhowlettrodney77, makes sense then.08:24
rodney77cfhowlett, but i don't want to run a dedicated distro. anyway i can't find a repo anywhere for realtime08:24
cfhowlettrodney77, fwiw: ubuntustudio has RT kernel by default.08:25
rodney77cfhowlett, maybe i can add ubuntustudio's kernel? I thought about adding ubuntustudio repos but then it would try to upgrade a bunch of other stuff08:26
cfhowlettrodney77, and you do NOT want the upgrade?!  :)  but yes.  wait one08:26
cfhowlettyou can sudo apt install the low-latency kernel of your choice without changing repos  http://paste.ubuntu.com/14397990/08:28

rodney77ok cfhowlett, i downloaded the repo and the kernel is definitely in here as a deb08:34
rodney77so this is great! thanks so much!08:35
cfhowlettrodney77, happy2help!08:35
gcfhvjbkncfhowlett: ok so grub won't give me a chance to "invoke" it unless i configure it to appear for a given number of seconds?08:37
cfhowlettgcfhvjbkn, by default, grub goes to zero display.  you can edit that if you choose08:38
gcfhvjbknthis page says you can "force" load grub by pressing shift at a point08:38
cfhowlett"time out" = 0 is the technical term IIRC08:38
cfhowlettgcfhvjbkn, grub IS loading, it is just doing so invisibly08:38
gcfhvjbknok, this is uncomfortable because i lost access to my system so i cannot edit grub settings08:38
gcfhvjbknonly if i boot with livecd (maybe)08:39
gcfhvjbknyou sure there's no other option?08:39
cfhowlettgcfhvjbkn, only what I've read in the wiki08:39
stangelandHi, i have 2 disks mounted via the ubuntu auto-mounting system, but when i try to list files on the disks i just get permission denied. How do i change permission such that files are available to read and write for all users?08:41
llldinoDo you have access to another os? If so all you gotta do is edit the grub configuration file fount at /etc/default/grub08:41
gcfhvjbknwell i can read too..08:41

Newbie101_Hello I tried installing Unbound DNS and now I can't access the internet. How can I revert back to the default DNS configuration ?08:43

cfhowlettNewbie101_, purge unbounddns?08:43
Ben64Newbie101_: undo what you did08:43
gcfhvjbkn* @gcfvhjbkn08:44
gcfhvjbknllldino: i read that there is a way to make grub show itself by pressing shift; i might have misunderstood this maybe?08:45
gcfhvjbknif so i'll stop trying and go find livecd08:45
Newbie101_Ben64, I tried but its not working...the reason I am here...08:45
Ben64Newbie101_: well what exactly did you do08:46
llldinogcfhvjbkn: I've read that somewhere too, honestly I've never been patient enough to figure out why it won't work for me, instead I just set an option to have GRUB always show08:46
gcfhvjbknok, thanks08:47
Newbie101_Ben64, I installed Unbound DNS following the instructions on their website not working. I deleted the Unbound files and still not working after a reboot08:47

TomiiiHello, why isnt "intel-microcode" included by default?09:28
Tomiiiit seems helpful!09:29
Newbie101_Ben64, what should be my next action ? apt-get install dnsmasq ?09:33
cfhowlett!debian | Tomiii,09:33
ubottuTomiii,: Ubuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/i386/what-is-debian.html - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!09:33
Ben64Newbie101_: no, it might work now09:34
Newbie101_ok, you mean the DNS should resolve ?09:35
Tomiiicfhowlett: do you update ur microcode?09:35
cfhowlettTomiii, never seen the need09:35
Newbie101_Ben64, ok, you mean the DNS should resolve ?09:35
llldinoTomiii, After reading up on it, it seems as though it's something that shouldn't be messed with unless you're having stability issues09:35
Newbie101_Ben64, dig google.com  ; <<>> DiG 9.9.5-3ubuntu0.5-Ubuntu <<>> google.com ;; global options: +cmd ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached09:35
cfhowlettTomiii, for that matter, I can wait for such fixes to be rolled into the bios updates09:36
Tomiiicfhowlett: yes, but BIOS updates stop for computers after a few years09:37
Ben64Newbie101_: should maybe restart networking or your computer or both09:37
Newbie101_Ben64, ok thank you let me try to reboot...brb09:38
orf_God damn guys, what the hell is wrong with Linux and multiple monitors09:43
orf_every time I upgrade my kernel some new issue crops up. This time one of my 3 identical displays is an "Unknown display"09:44
orf_And has a really small resolution.09:44
cfhowlettorf_, drop the profanity immediately if you expect support09:44
cfhowlett!english | orf_09:44
ubottuorf_: The main Ubuntu channels require that you speak in calm, polite English. For other languages, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList09:44
orf_Sorry, it's just a bit frustrating.09:44
orf_Is there a way to just remove the display entirely, so that when I re-plug it it's a fresh screen?09:45
cfhowlettorf_, did it work properly under the previous kernel??09:45
Newbie101_Ben64, I rebooted and still not internet access : bob@bob-machine ~ $ ping -c3 google.com ping: unknown host google.com09:45
orf_I tried running xrandr --delmode but I get "BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)"09:45
orf_yes cfhowlett, but the display config seems to get messed up every kernel update09:46
Ben64Newbie101_: open the network configuration thingy and set static dns servers09:46
Ben64orf_: what video card09:46
orf_inbuilt intel one, I can get the exact version number if you like09:46
jophishhi, I upgraded my kernel to 4.0 to fix my wifi connection speed, however after doing this I can't use any external usb devices or connect to wifi09:46
Ben64orf_: sorry, idk much about intel graphics09:47
orf_do you know how to just reset the entire display config?09:47
Ben64jophish: how did you do the upgrade, and what version of ubuntu are you on09:47
orf_I can then reconfigure each monitor, but starting fresh seems like a good way to go09:47
jophishBen64: 14.04, I installed linux-image-4.2.0-22-generic. I'm installing image-extra now to see if that helps09:48
llldinoorf_, Did you run the xrandr command as root?09:50
Ben64jophish: that package isn't meant to be installed by itself09:50
jophishBen64: ah, what should I have installed instead?09:50
Ben64jophish: something like this...  sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-wily09:52
Tomiiijophish: what is the easiest way to update to linux 4.2?09:52
jophishBen64: I'll give that a go, thanks09:52
jophishTomiii: pretty much, yeah09:53
Tomiiijophish: can you do it in synaptic?09:53
jophishI was told that it could fix the problems I've been having with my wifi connection09:53
jophishTomiii: I've not used synaptic in about 10 years, I don't know if I've even got it installed09:53
cfhowlettjophish, first try normal channels.  apt-get -s update && apt-get -s full-upgrade               will show what's possible but will not execute anything09:54
jophishcfhowlett: will that upgrade the whole system? I'd rather just upgrade the kernel09:54
Newbie101_Ben64, I reboot and works. Thank you for your help. Is there some links you could send me so that I can learn more about what you helped me repair? I want to learn...09:55
cfhowlettjophish, *will not execute* ...09:55
Ben64Newbie101_: well if you set static dns, then its using that09:55
jophishcfhowlett: sorry, I meant to ask: "will that do a dry run of upgrading the whole system? I'd rather just have a dry run of upgrading the kernel"09:56
Newbie101_Ben64, ok well thank you for your time.Have a good day.09:56
jophishback in a flash, rebooting09:56
cfhowlettjophish, yes it will dry run.   see the output and if (as hoped) a new kernel is there, you can specify upgrading the kernel only09:57

mcphailPaulePanter: for most users, having a separate /boot is only a hindrance. Ask the user to run "apt-get autoremove" to see if it can clear some space on /boot. Otherwise, it will require manual clearing13:11
PaulePantermcphail: Thanks.13:13
PaulePantermcphail: Do you work at Ubuntu and are able to fix this together with HP?13:13
mcphailPaulePanter: no - I don't have any connections to Ubuntu/Canonical or HP13:14
mcphailPaulePanter: simply a longtime user13:14
annon100101solaries: if not than check this.. . https://wiki.debian.org/WindowsServerHyperV13:14
PaulePantermcphail: Thank you for caring about it then. As written, the father is a normal user and bought the system from HP with Ubuntu preinstalled. I hoped, HP and Canonical would have a better QA to give a better user experience.13:15
mcphailPaulePanter: It is an easy one to miss, only becoming apparent after several kernel upgrade. But, i fully agree with you, it is a bad bug. I wish they would add big warnings to the Ubuntu installer13:16
solariesthanks, annon100101! Will check out those guides!13:16
solariesannon100101: Are you also running Ubuntu under Win10 HyperV?13:17
Fohlenhey guys. I've got a computer with 2 line-in sound output devices, that I configured using alsamixer to be in non auto-mute mode. But now suddenly it outputs my input (microfon) on both headset and speakers13:17
mcphailPaulePanter: it would be worth reporting to HP as well13:17
Fohlenany idea how I could fix that13:17
FohlenI disabled the mic for now because its annoying as fuck13:17
NoCodeHi, I've just encrypted a USB dongle with LUKS with gnome-disks, When I input the passphrase of the key, I get: "You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of disk". Do I need to be root to view the content on the USB if I've format the USB dongle as root?13:19
llldinoNoCode,  Yes13:20
NoCodellldino: So formating it without being root will allow me to use the passphase(LUKS) and continue using it via user?13:21
llldinoYou can just use "chown -R yourusername /location/of/usb" and that should work, but i'm not too familiar with LUKS and i'm not sure if LUKS intends the dongle to be root only13:23
NoCodellldino: Hopefully it works since when inserting the dongle, it asks for a passphase right off the bat. As I don't run in root always, it would be kind of useless to not be able to.13:26
NoCodeUbuntu should perhaps ask for the computer password, then ask for the LUKS password if so.13:26
NoCodeBut even then would be more of a pain because then what I am doing, it'll ask for a 3rd password right after that. :D13:27
NoCodeholy crapola.13:27
llldinoIf you formatted it while logged in as the root user, it will set the owner of the directory as root, but if it intended for you to format it as user, then it should work fine13:28
llldinoI mean it should work fine if you format it as user, but you can just switch owners of directories using chown13:28
llldinoOh, and you'd have to run "chown -R yourusername /location/of/usb" as root13:28
NoCodeYes, am about the chown13:29
NoCodealso used username:username13:30
k1lPaulePanter: report to hp. the manufacturers tend to modify the setups for preinstallation.13:37
NoCodellldino: That worked, but what I don't get is why Nautilus wouldn't ask for the passphrase again after closing the window. hrm13:40
k1lPaulePanter: and a "sudo apt-get autoremove" should remove some of the old kernels13:40
C_minus14.04 problem - didn't successfully boot a couple of times (hanging on 5 dots). so selectde "recovery mode" but didn't understand options, so chose "resume normal boot". This time, 5 dots are gone, I'm at the login window, can hear the ubuntu drums. But when I type in my password, the screen sort of jerks/flashes, and sends me back to login screen.13:43
C_minusSame if I choose "guest session"13:44
k1lC_minus: what did you do before the first not-booting13:44
C_minusI had used ubuntu this morning, shut down and restarted in windows 7 to check on something windows-related, then shut down win7 and tried to boot ubuntu. which brings me to present moment!13:45
C_minusJust rebooted again, and I'm back at the 5 dots. This is very bad :(13:46
C_minusIs there something like a "safe mode" i can use?13:47
k1lC_minus: i would go and try to find the cause and repair that13:49
k1lC_minus: it sounds like there is an issue with the video driver or the hard disk at all.13:49
k1lC_minus: so again: what did you do (on ubuntu) before that happend.13:49
C_minuswell i used it happily this morning. was just browsing the web really, nothing fancy.13:49
k1llike installing updates, installing other kernels, installing video drivers from some websites,....13:50
C_minusk1l nope nothing like that.13:50
k1lC_minus: can you press ctrl+alt+f1 and log in there?13:52
C_minusAt what point should I do that? On the 5 dots splash screen?13:53
C_minus!!! OK so weird - I tried failsafe mode - it just had a window saying "the system is running in low graphics mode" and didn't respond to keyboard or trackpad. So switched off, switched back on, and it booted/logged in perfectly fine13:54
ubottuC_minus: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)13:54
C_minusSo strange! I have loved using ubuntu and learning about linux recently, but sometimes it scares the hell out of me!13:55
C_minusIt must have failed to boot about 8 or 10 times before working :/13:55
C_minusDoes this type of thing ever happen to you?13:57
k1lC_minus: no. you can look into the old syslogs in /var/log/ to see what was going on13:57

StratI have 2 monitors. Everytime i start up ubuntu, i need to open certain programs, and set their location to each monitor (ex.: program 1 and 2 on monitor 1 and evenly distribute the space by using ubuntu's "snap to edge" feature). I already setup my startup applications, but how do i allocate the corresponding space and monitor to each application?14:21
C_minus_I'm not sure if k1l is already helping me out with this. But does anybody have the enthusiasm to check through this syslog and perhaps work out why my laptop was hanging on splash screen/failing to log in? http://pastebin.com/0HhZZ4Fh14:23

Stratpbx, thanks for the reply. I was aware of tiling window managers (used awesomewm in the past, it was great!), and thought maybe i could do something similar within ubuntu without addition software packages to be installed. Anyway, i think i have to get back to a tiling window manager. Thnx for the reply ;)14:40
bgardnerC_minus_: I was trying to take a run at this but honestly I don't see anything worrisome in your log.  I thought checking those two files was worth a shot but now I'm out of ideas.  Perhaps someone else can assist.14:41
C_minus_bgardner thanks. what does it mean if you see a bunch of stuff highlighted in red in the syslog? i that bad?14:41
bgardnerC_minus_: Depends on what you use to look at it.  If you're grepping, it's just highlighting what matched the grep.14:42

C_minus_no this is just the way it looked when i opened it in gedit. \00\00\00\00\00... all in red. sorry i have no idea what most of the logs are about.14:43
C_minus_this worries me, i have no idea when it's going to fail to boot next. i'm scared to switch off the computer.14:44
MonkeyDustC_minus_  when did this start? is this your first experience with ubuntu?14:45
C_minus_MonkeyDust. Not quite first, but im relatively new to ubuntu/computing. This morning was using ubuntu a-ok. Then rebooted into win7 for a while. when i came back to boot into ubuntu it failed about 8-10 times - hanging on splash screen,14:47
C_minus_then i tried recovery mode, but didn't understand the options, so just selected "resume normal boot". This allowed me to get to login screen, but after entering password, screen just sort of flashed/jerked and sent me back to login screen.14:48
C_minus_Sounds like this problem http://askubuntu.com/questions/223501/ubuntu-gets-stuck-in-a-login-loop but as i say, I could only get this far after recovery-mode > resume normal boot. Otherwise just 5 dot splash screen.14:49
MonkeyDustC_minus_  similar to this?  http://askubuntu.com/questions/462272/cant-login-to-ubuntu-14-0414:50
C_minus_MonkeyDust quite similar, although I COULDN'T log in with the guest account either.14:50

solariesannon100101: unfortunately, my problem isn't solved yet.14:54
solarieswhat would be the "raw" way of configuring X?14:54
solariesI mean in the ancient past there was a possibility to probe the graphics card.14:54
akiksolaries: you can still use /etc/X11/xorg.conf to configure it14:55
C_minus_On an unrelated note, does anybody know what tool I might use to make a complete clone/image of my hard drive - including BOTH ubuntu and win7 partition? To back up to an external hard drive?14:56

ubottuC_minus: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can use the !software package "apt-clone" - See also !automate14:57

OerHekssolaries ^^14:57
solariescool, thx14:58
C_minus_cfhowlett so you recommnd clonezilla to make a clone of every partition on my laptop, all at once? Ideally I'd like to be able to restore the machine to its earlier state all in 1 step after a failure (i.e. put Win7 and Ubuntu back on)15:00
akiksolaries: you can see if "X -configure" or "Xorg -configure" creates a working xorg.conf.new file15:00
cfhowlettC_minus, yeah you could do that ...15:00
=== francisco is now known as Guest8108
C_minus_Some people seem to think the problem is related to nvidia drivers15:06
C_minus_In the additional drivers dialogue, it says I am "Using NVIDIA binary driver - v352.68 from nvidia-352 (proprietary)"15:07
C_minus_I chose this a while ago because I wanted to install CUDA, but lost interest in that.15:07
C_minus_However it has been working fine since then (that was ages ago), i.e. no boot problems15:08
C_minus_Could it still be related?15:08
mcphailC_minus_: are you 100% sure you don't have failing hardware or a corrupt filesystem? Have you switched off all "fast boot" or "special windows boot" options in the BIOS? Have you tried booting with an earlier kernel?15:10
DvginkelGoodday Everyone15:12
C_minus_mcphail - hardware should be good - laptop is only a couple months old. how can i check filesystem? i remember running "fsck" while in "recovery mode" and it reported like 0.3% non contiguous files or something like that but can't remember exactly.15:12
C_minus_i haven't made any changes to the bios, at least not recently but i can check... it could be in some kind of "legacy mode"15:13
mcphailC_minus_: new hardware doesn't mean working hardware. Check your memory and disks (from a live USB, if you can't boot). Worrying that you needed to run fsck at some point. Did you have an unclean shutdown?15:14
C_minus_mcphail - i didn't *need* to run fsck. i just couldn't boot and i was at a loss as to what to do.15:14
mcphailC_minus_: also, try booting with the previous kernel from the GRUB menu. Perhaps the nvidia drivers did not get rebuilt with the latest kernel upgrade15:15
C_minus_several unclean shutdowns AFTER my laptop started failing to boot - because all i had at my disposal was a purple screen with 5 dots and the power off button. but i always shut down before powering off otherwise15:15
mcphailC_minus_: if you are struggling to shutdown, try holding "Alt" and "SysRq/PrntScrn" and press "REISUO" slowly15:16
valtripMonkeyDust :  no file in /etc/udev/rules.d   ,, after searching find this   http://askubuntu.com/questions/228673/change-ra0-to-wlan0-in-ubuntu-10-10    still 75-file not found in /lib/15:16
C_minus_mcphail - ok if i recall in the grub menu i have a couple of options under "advanced options" but they're both the same version. if i recall correctly.15:16
mcphailC_minus_: or "REISUB" if you want to reboot15:16
mcphailC_minus_: that would be unusual. Is this a very new install?15:17
MonkeyDustvaltrip  instead of struggling, accept the new naming convention15:17
C_minus_mcphail, yeah pretty new i guess. installed ubuntu on xmas day.15:18
mcphailC_minus_: aah. OK, shouldn't be an issue with dkms building, then. Did you install the nvidia drivers from default repos?15:18
C_minus_mcphail: i just went to "additional drivers" and chose one of the nvidia proprietary ones.15:19
mcphailC_minus_: OK. Good. Can you still boot into Windows?15:19
C_minus_mcphail 352.68 if that means anything to you. yes win7 works fine as far as i can tell.15:20
mcphailC_minus_: and any "fast boot" options switched off in BIOS?15:20
=== step21 is now known as step21_
C_minus_mcphail, i'm pretty sure i don't have any fast-boot options enabled, but since i'm talking to you i don't want to shut down and find out! and potentially not be able to come back!15:21
mcphailC_minus_: Ha! do you have any important files on your Ubuntu install?15:21
daftykinsyou can't run like that forever :P15:21
C_minus_mcphail, i guess i could reboot and come back to IRC on a different computer. I have a few things that will be annoying to install again. But I guess it wouldn't be the end of the world if I need to reinstall.15:22
mcphailC_minus_: OK, then I suggest you boot into a live USB and mount your Ubuntu partition. Have a look around in your home directory and see if anything is missing/corrupted. Report back. If you do have vital files on the partition, make a clone first15:23
C_minus_I was just discussing that with someone else. I am considering clonezilla to make a perfect image of EVERYTHING - including my Win7 partition.15:23
mcphailC_minus_: To be honest, a clone with "dd" would be easier and more useful. But whatever you ant to use is fine15:24
daftykinsno it's not easier or more useful :P15:24
daftykinsclonezilla would be ace as you won't need to store all the empty space15:24
C_minus_There are some things on Win7 that I really don't want to have to reinstall (huge downloads).15:25
mcphaildaftykins: it is if you want to mount the image. And you can pipe dd through bzip215:25
C_minus_Does dd have the ability to clone the other partitions too?15:25
=== zengine_ is now known as zengine
daftykinsmcphail: so you're claiming you can't mount clonezilla's output? how odd.15:25
mcphailC_minus_: yes - it just gives a byte-for-byte image15:25
mcphaildaftykins: I may be confused. I never claim not to be confused ;)15:26
daftykinsjust seems like you're promoting one over the other without knowing one to compare directly15:26
mcphaildaftykins: dd is intrinsically easier because it is already installed15:27
daftykinstotal rubbish15:27
daftykinssingle package install from a live environment15:27
OerHeksdd needs sync afterwards, do not forget that.15:28
mcphaildaftykins: This is going to degenerate into a matter of opinion15:28
daftykinsit is if you're going to keep claiming something is easier in your opinion :)15:28
C_minus_so to get clonezilla, I boot up using my ubuntu LiveUSB, and then something like apt-get install clonezilla?15:28
daftykinsas long as there's a working internet connection there, wouldn't hurt to chain together "sudo apt update && sudo apt install clonezilla"15:29
daftykinsthen you'll obviously need to plug in whatever additional storage you have, to image this disk to15:30
C_minus_ok i really need to do that before it's too late.15:30
BraybautC_minus, Clonezilla is Distro, not installed from apt15:30
mcphaildaftykins: "Due to the image format limitation, the image can not be explored or mounted." That may have changed, but that's what I had read and it is still on the main page15:30
Charly41why ubuntu has not it installed and active by default a good firewall? I want to install one that run autimatically when I start the system, which one do you advice to install?15:30

cfhowlett!ufw | Charly4115:30
ubottuCharly41: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo15:30

daftykinsproof ^15:31
cfhowlettdaftykins, would it not be advisable to clone from a liveCD rather than a login session?15:32
Braybautdaftykins, yes, installable from apt, Sorry15:32
llldinoJust my two cents here, I find dd far easier to use over clonezilla for cloning disks or partitions, less software in the way of getting the job done imo15:32
Charly41cfhowlett, I have checked with iptables and it is not active, ufw is installed but incoming and outgoing traffic is all allowed15:32
daftykinscfhowlett: we were told that's what's being done ( a live session booted)15:32
cfhowlettCharly41, you have to activate ufw ...15:32
daftykinsCharly41: are you not behind a NAT router already?15:33
Charly41cfhowlett, I have a modem ad home, with my isp brand on it15:34
cfhowlettdaftykins, believe this is for you ^^^^15:34
C_minus_So just to clarify once more, I get a fresh external hard drive, larger than my laptop's hard drive, boot LiveUSB, install clonezilla, and ask it to make a perfect image of the hard drive?15:34
daftykinsCharly41: so your computer receives your internet facing IP directly on the wired interface?15:34
C_minus_Then if something goes wrong, I can recover my old setup from a similar LiveUSb environment?15:35
Charly41daftykins, seems so yes15:35
daftykinsC_minus_: yes disk to image copy - its' menus are pretty self explanatory, you'd format the external disk as anything you can store the image on15:35
daftykinsCharly41: mmm yep time to play with ufw then - but this really depends on whether you're running any open externally facing services or not - grc.com has a handy little port scanner15:35
daftykinsCharly41: i'd prefer to get a proper router myself ;)15:36

C_minus_Dumb question, but just so I don't waste my money on something stupd, will any external HDD work?15:39

daftykinsC_minus_: depends what your system has available, i got a £16 (GBP) USB 3.0 with UASP enclosure recently and put a 2.5" laptop HDD inside it15:40

pizzaguyWhat is the root password in recovery mode?16:35
pizzaguyDoesnt ubuntu not have a root account by default? so does that mean I cant "drop to root shell prompt"?16:35
akikpizzaguy: it's unknown unless you change it16:36
llldinopizzaguy, You should be the root user in recovery mode16:36
tgm4883no password16:36
llldinopizzaguy, The root password is null by default in Ubuntu16:36
akikrecovery mode asks for the root password16:36
tgm4883akik: then you probably changed it at some point16:36
llldinorather, diabled16:36
pizzaguyakik yes when I select 'drop to root shell prompt'16:36
akiktgm4883: yes i did16:37
pizzaguyBut i never set up a root password16:37
tro74nhey there16:37
MonkeyDustpizzaguy  that's because there is no root passwor16:37
pizzaguyThe problem I have is that my filesystem has errors and wont mount. Any suggestions?16:37

tro74nchhowlett thanks for information..16:39
cfhowletttro74n, happy2help!16:40
llldinopizzaguy, You'll have to use a live CD to run fsck on the filesystem16:40
pizzaguyOkay Ill try a live cd16:40
=== nullsign- is now known as nullsign
llldinopizzaguy, That would be your easiest option, failing that you can use single user mode but using a live CD is safer16:41
llldinoDrop a shell on the Live CD and run as root "fsck -fy /location/of/filesystem"16:42
akiktgm4883: do you mean that if i hadn't changed the root password, the recovery mode wouldn't ask for it?16:43
tgm4883akik: correct16:43
pizzaguyllldino: honestly, I dont know the location of the filesystem16:43
pizzaguywell i guess each partition has its own16:44
llldinopizzaguy, I believe you can run fsck on the device node but i've never done it, so that would be /dev/sdXY, make sure you double check it's not mounted16:44
pizzaguyugh live cd shows "Disk has many bad sectors" I think this is the result of a system crash possibly in addition to it trying to fix itself16:47
llldinopizzaguy, Is the drive old? What did you do?!16:47
MonkeyDustpizzaguy  havent followed ... what got your system in this situation? what brings you here?16:48
linuxuserwannabewhat's the easiest way to install the latest version of nmcli (part of network-manager package) in Kubuntu 14.04?16:49
pizzaguylldino: yes the drive is kinda old16:49
pizzaguyMonkeyDust, lldino: So I think the cpu fan is messed up and the computer just turned off after getting too hot, and thats when this started16:50
OerHekslinuxuserwannabe, better ask in #kubuntu, not sure why you think you need a newer version16:50
pizzaguyMonkeyDust: The filesystem wont mount due too errors16:50
linuxuserwannabethere are some parameters that are only supported in the latest version16:50
MonkeyDustlinuxuserwannabe  if it's in the repos: use apt-get install ... if it's not in the repos: find a .deb or ppa or so, but that's not supported here16:50
llldinopizzaguy, Yeah if it won't mount and fsck won't run you might be done.16:50
OerHekslinuxuserwannabe, and what version is that? url?16:50
llldinopizzaguy, What is the exact output of "fsck"16:51

llldinoJust type "mount" to get a list of whats mounted16:52
linuxuserwannabeOerHeks: I need to use "con mod" param16:52
llldinoIs your root filesystem on this hard drive?"16:52
OerHekslinuxuserwannabe, upgrade to 15.0 or build it yourself?16:53
OerHeks* 15.1016:53
pizzaguyfsck yields "One or more group descriptor checksums are invalid Fix<y>?"16:54
pizzaguytry to fix it yes?16:54
linuxuserwannabeOerHeks: build the whole package (network-manager)? I only need nmcli16:54
llldinopizzaguy, Yeah16:54
OerHekslinuxuserwannabe, yes, else you might run into issues, likely16:55
frostschutzpizzaguy, don't run fsck on bad drives.16:55

rickardo1cfhowlett: How could that happend?17:35
rickardo1cfhowlett: Shouldn't that be handled by the system?17:36
cfhowlettrickardo1, happens cause you never cleaned out your old kernels.17:36
llldinopizzaguy, Well, most files you create and download probably end up in /home. Also, if you use firefox all your settings/bookmarks .etc are stored in /home.mozilla17:36
rickardo1cfhowlett: Any solution?17:36
llldinopizzaguy, So you're probably safe with just taking /home17:36
BluesKajrickardo1:  in the future consider using a 15G / partition rather than a boot plus a /home partition of course17:36
cfhowlettrickardo1, try sudo apt-get autoremove17:36

Cristian_BluesKaj: thanks, I'm trying to figure out to which graphics stack version according to intel numeration that driver belongs to17:45
llldinopizzaguy, But I would consider compressing /home with tar first and then maybe look at using rsync and cron to run a scheduled backup to a dedicated location, maybe something to look into when you get your NAS?17:46

pizzaguyohh god 10hrs eta17:49
llldinopizzaguy, 400 GB in /home? Geez.. I'm not sure, with gzip maybe like 150-300.. I'm not sure. With bzip maybe more compression17:49
llldinoMaybe consider clearing some stuff you don't need17:50
pizzaguyI really dont know what there is. i had the computer off for a few years. i probably have a few vm's17:50
pizzaguyllldino: Is it going to be a problem, If i am copying to an ntfs drive?17:50
TJ-pizzaguy: it's likely with that amount of data much if it is in files that are already heavily compressed, so being selective might speed things up a lot17:51
dromar56pizzaguy: you can check very fast with "ncdu" what exactly are those 400gb17:51
llldinopizzaguy, Not at all. You can also do "du -h --max-depth=1 /home" to see what sub directories are taking up space17:51
llldinoRather change the 1 to a 217:52
dromar56or use ncdu, it's really great for this kind of things17:52
dromar56I use it for this exact situation, finding out what do I need to backup17:52

Algebr`Why oh why does ubuntu's apt-get or aptitude always want to remove unrelated stuff that will destroy my system?? http://pastebin.com/dCxdmjS718:17
TJ-fartface: how about "find /path/to/base/dir -type d -execdir rename 's/\.foo$/\.foo_bar/' *.foo \;" - not sure when the "*" will be exanded by the shell though - might need to be quoted to protect it from the interactive shell18:19
fartfaceTJ- that's basically what I was planning, -exec 'mv {} {}_backup' but I can only include one pair of braces to spit out the filename, and I couldn't remember how to capture the result18:20
llldinofartface, There's probably a fancy way to do it using a for statement, but my bash isn't that great18:21
TJ-Algebr`: it's not unrelated - apt is following the dependency graph. libimobiledevice4 is depended on by other packages. If you remove it, they have to be removed too (to prevent breakages). If other packages depend on those, then the removal cascades18:21
fartfacellldino: makes two of us lol18:21
TJ-fartface: use -execdir rather tha -exec its more targeted, and safer18:21
Algebr`TJ-: there is no logical connection between the gnome-session-manager and libimobiledevice418:22
MonkeyDustAlgebr`  maybe indirectly, through another package - a removal cascade, as TJ- says18:23
=== bizukifu is now known as Guest11735
TJ-Algebr`: incorrect: gnome-session-bin depends on upower, which is a reverse-depends of libimobiledevice418:23
TJ-Algebr`: I'd reconsider the reason for wanting to remove the library, and if there is an alternative to doing that18:24
Algebr`TJ-: I see, then what can I do in these situations, how can I safely remove libimobiledevice wihtout damning the rest of the system18:24

frostythesnowmananyone? :\19:06
BluesKajfrostythesnowman:  did you add a ppa for instaling nautilus-dropbox?19:08
TJ-legionCyber: it doesn't help us that those log entries aren't timestamped so we don't know if they are related to the session crash. You might find something else/more useful in the logs under /var/log/lightdm/ (maybe an error code when the user session dies). Also, when it does crash DO NOT log back in via the GUI (otherwise you'll erase the $HOME/.xsession-errors file. Instead, switch to a TTY console with19:08
TJ-Alt+Ctrl+F1, log-in, and check the $HOME/.xsession-errors file before it gets truncated. Maybe copy it to another file to save it, then you can return to the GUI with Alt+F7 and log-in the GUI19:08
frostythesnowmanBluesKaj: i think i may have.  i don't remember how i got into this state unfortunately.19:09
frostythesnowmanBluesKaj: I was originally trying to install dropbox, and having trouble, and eventaully gave up.  i don't think i reset the changes i amde.19:09
frostythesnowmanIf I did add the PPA, how would i remove it?19:09
TJ-I-am-Groot: the backdrop to that is using the XDG mime-types  registration to add your program registered as a handler for text/plain ... but as to how you do that via Unity/Gnome - no idea!19:10
MonkeyDustfrostythesnowman  sudo aptitude purge ~c   <-- that's a tilde19:10
MonkeyDustfrostythesnowman  that's for dropbox, not for the ppa19:11

TJ-I-am-Groot: I think it can be as simple as a mime-type line in the .desktop file you create for the application19:14
BluesKajfrostythesnowman:  run sudo dpkg --configure -a then sudo apt-get -f install then it might install dropbox since it seems it's installation was inr=terrupted19:17
frostythesnowmanBluesKaj: i tried that too, but dpkg --configure -a tries to restart the installation of nautilus-dropbox which freezes19:17
frostythesnowmanthat was actually the original problem i was trying to fix, to no avail19:18
TJ-I-am-Groot: aha! read the sub-section "Shared MIME database package" for background, and then go to the end of the page and follow the link for "Desktop entry specification" and in the 'specs' page see the "Registering MIME Types" section19:18

anabainTJ ^19:53
cycliamHello. I'm trying to build a mainline kernel. I'm getting this error: http://pastebin.com/hk3uF9e0 . The only hit for the term in Google is that very pastebin, posted by someone else 6 days ago.19:53
mrsam__<lilwiz>im install ubuntu19:53
lilwizmrsam__, create a live usb-stick with gparted live, it will definitely be able to create partitions if you can't accomplish it through terminal on ubuntu19:54
ztaneis there an applet for controlling the bluetooth (power on / off)19:55
anabainTJ-, ok, mystery solved: when installing, at first, you get the option "upgrade your installer" next to the "read version notes". If you click it you activate the GPT method. If you don't, then you do msdos partitioning.19:55
mrsam__<lilwiz>hum tnx...can i do this with windows cd?19:55
ztaneI'd want to have bluetooth be killed by default... but having "rfkill" in rc.local does sound a bit 70s to me...19:55
anabainTJ-, when installing kubuntu 15.1019:56
lilwizmrsam__, you can create gparted live usb with ubuntu, scroll down and read instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto19:56

MonkeyDustmrsam__  the iso, from a live dvd or usb?19:59
mrsam__<MonkeyDust> USB19:59
mrsam__<anabain> i dont have any iso file from ubuntu now19:59
MonkeyDustmrsam__  boot from the live usb, select 'try ubuntu', then find gparted20:00
mrsam__<MonkeyDust> So cant i do this in my ubuntu noW?20:00
MonkeyDustmrsam__  no, do it in the live session20:01
mrsam__tnx my friend :)20:01
MonkeyDustmrsam__  backup first, before you start modifying partitions20:01
anabainmrsam__, if you want to install ubuntu you need an iso image. Apart from that, if you have a USB stick and you're running ubuntu, you can do as I said.20:01
TJ-anabain: that GPT/MsDOS switch sounds really opaque - I'd never have associated "upgrade installer" with "change partitioning scheme"20:03
anabainTJ-, exactly, that was driving me mad20:03

int-mainTJ- : It says hp_wmi 16384 020:37
int-mainI think yes, dependency count is 020:37
TJ-int-main: there are 2 known ways to fix that; in some it requires hp-wmi to be blacklisted to prevent it intercepting the platform hot-key events; in others it requires using acpi_osi= to tell the kernel to pretend to be a version of Windows that is recognised by the PC's ACPI DSDT firmware20:38

int-mainI think the other way is needed20:40
=== step21 is now known as step21_
TJ-int-main: as well as unloading hp-wmi, I seem to recall it requires one of the other drivers to be reloaded; can't recall which right now, though20:42

int-mainTJ- : there you go -> http://pastebin.com/J3ThEMhD20:44
snguyenTJ- that makes... a lot of sense actually. derp... thanks ^__^;;20:47
TJ-int-main: generally the most recent version of Windows found enables the most functionality on the platform, so having Linux report itself as "Windows 2013" is the best option.20:49
TJ-int-main: so this will add that to the GRUB config:  "   sudo sed -i '/^GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=/ { s/"$/ \\"acpi_osi=Windows 2013\\""/}' /etc/default/grub    "20:50
TJ-int-main: then do "update-grub" and reboot to test it.20:50
TJ-int-main: this may also need hp-wmi to be blacklisted; so if you haven't already done that, do it before you reboot20:51
int-mainTJ- : where do i add it? I mean any specific line?20:51
=== ejm is now known as fungy
TJ-int-main: run the command as I gave it to you and it'll do the addition automatically20:51
TJ-int-main: that 'sed' command updates /etc/default/grub, adding the setting to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX variable20:52
int-mainTJ- : rebooting now. BRB20:53
ohffshi sangnk20:55
ohffsand peter with wings20:55
dovahwith wings :')20:56
int-mainTJ- : Didn't work :(20:56
TJ-int-main: is hp-wmi blacklisted and definitely not loaded?20:56
int-mainTJ- : Yep. hp_wireless is loaded though20:57
TJ-int-main: I recall that might also be a problem because it has the alias "acpi*:HPQ6001:*" and the HPQ6001 is a known problem causer. try blacklisting that module too20:59
int-mainTJ- : Alright.21:01
int-mainTJ- : still not working21:03
TJ-int-main: when you press the hot-key does the LED state change ?21:04
int-mainTJ- No21:04
int-mainBut it never used to change. But the thing is it used to work before.21:04
int-mainNow the very same ISO that used to work doesn't work.21:04
int-mainNo distro of linux works.21:04
int-mainArch, Fedora, tried it all21:04
TJ-int-main: have you dual-booted into Windows and operated the wifi toggle at any point? sometimes that can cause the issue, and also fix it. which reminds me of another issue. it sometimes needs a complete power-off and battery removal or else the system can maintain some firmware state.21:06
int-mainTJ- : I don't dual boot. Its single boot.21:07
int-mainShould I try battery removal now?21:07
TJ-int-main: before you do lets check that acpi_osi has taken effect. show us "cat /proc/cmdline" please21:08
int-mainTJ- : BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.2.0-22-generic.efi.signed root=UUID=2d54e327-b4d6-48ad-82ad-6c97969cf224 ro "acpi_osi=Windows 2013" quiet splash vt.handoff=721:09

k1l!rootirc > root___21:09
ubotturoot___, please see my private message21:09
TJ-int-main: yes, that's good :) ... Yes, do a shutdown, then battery removal, then press the power button to cause it to drain any capacitors holding charge. give it 20 seconds, then replace battery and try again21:12
int-mainTJ- : Didn't work either21:18

Guest7367hey guys I had a problem when upgrading from 14.04 to 15.0421:19
RYDeNwhich problem?21:19
Guest7367at first it wouldn't let me log in, now i can't even get into the login page. Only grub21:20
int-mainTJ- : http://pastebin.com/Jg8d4s8M21:20
k1lGuest7367: what did you do?21:21
Guest7367I just used the upgrade program to update to the new version.21:21
RYDeNsometimes, when upgrading....21:22
RYDeNthere are some problems21:22
Guest7367Automatic logout continued to happen, i'd log back in to check progress regularly. Then it wouldn't let me login, just kept reloading login page21:23
RYDeNi always recommend a clean install21:23
Guest7367ok is there a way to save my files?21:23
daftykinsnah, boot a live session, chroot your install and upgrade to 15.10 - you won't lose anything but time and it might sort itself out :)21:24
k1lGuest7367: so you did upgrade to 14.,10 then 15.04?21:24
Guest7367k1: well I dont know exactly, I turned on notifications for new versions and i just installed the first to come up21:25
Guest7367daftykins: live session as in from a disk or usb?21:25
daftykinsGuest7367: USB preferable to DVD for sure21:26
Guest7367daftykins: go straight to 15.10? which version should i live boot?21:29
k1lwell, 15.04 is end-of.live at the end of january anyway.21:30
daftykins^ part of my angle on going further21:30
k1lGuest7367: please support only in here21:32
Guest7367ok I just can'y figure out what that last symbol in your name is21:32
k1lGuest7367: no, the updater should not offer 15.04 when you are on 14.04. except you did launch that updater in some other modes. like developer mode21:32
k1lits a lower L21:33
Guest7367k1: i dont think i was in a dev mode21:33
Guest7367K1l: font is wierd21:33
Guest7367ok so my plan is to live boot any version of ubuntu, chmod the install, and hope that works?21:34
cycliamHello. I'm trying to build a mainline kernel. I'm getting this error: http://pastebin.com/hk3uF9e0 . The only hit for the term in Google is that very pastebin, posted by someone else 6 days ago.21:35
k1l"chroot" into that install21:35
EriC^^whatever you do, don't chmod the install, or chown for that matter21:35
Guest7367chroot into the install? havent used that command much21:36
daftykinsfirst you have to mount your partitions, so your / one goes to /mnt for example - then /home if separate would go onto /mnt/home/21:36
daftykinsGuest7367: have a glance at - http://karuppuswamy.com/wordpress/2010/06/02/how-to-chroot-to-ubuntu-using-live-cd-to-fix-grub-rescue-prompt/21:37
bithonhello. can anyone help me with ssh lag?21:37
Guest7367Aanother question before i try, Do ineed to update to 14.10 first ? or 15.10 like daftykins said? I'm moving from 14.4...or 15.04 i guess i dont really know21:37
daftykinsGuest7367: once you chroot we can check what your install thinks it is21:38
k1lGuest7367: chroot into that install and lets seee what that system really is21:38
Guest7367daftykins: sounds promising i will check it out. Thank you21:38
notalentgeekHello guys, I have a problem with JDK8. How can I downgrade into JDK6 in Ubuntu?21:38
Guest7367i'm trying to find the disk i used for my original install... will that work? or do i need to download a new one?21:38
daftykinswhat's wrong with JDK 8?21:39
notalentgeekdaftykins, Annotation processing got disabled in JDK8.21:39
notalentgeekI cannot compile my code anymore.21:39
int-mainTJ- : still there? I am waiting for your response.21:39
TJ-int-main: I see several firmware related problems there (bugs in the firmware) but not got to the end of the log yet :)21:39
daftykinsnotalentgeek: i take it we're talking oracle, how about 7?21:40
notalentgeekdaftykins, The compiler says that I need JVM1.6 I believe it was in JDK6.21:40
int-mainTJ- : Just one thing, is there a chance to solve it? Or should I start with Windows installation?21:40
notalentgeekI need JVM1.6. Was it in JDK7 or 6?21:40
daftykinsnotalentgeek: would it be worth enquiring on their site docs first to confirm when it was killed?21:40
daftykinsor ask in a java channel21:40
notalentgeekdaftykins, https://github.com/processing/processing/issues/226021:41
notalentgeekHmm, can you tell me how to downgrade my Java version?21:41
daftykinsnotalentgeek: get the answer at the source before messing around with reinstallation.21:42
OerHeksTJ-, int-main maybe it is windows 2012 for this machine?21:42
notalentgeekWhat is wrong with re installation? I am new to Linux.21:42
TJ-int-main: well, that laptop was definitely intended to be targeted at Windows; We have solved this issue for several HP users in the last few months but it can take a lot of trying to get there, and there's no guarantee where the solution is.21:44
daftykinsreading the above link now21:44
TJ-int-main: as an aside I noticed the BIOS has disabled the virtualisation extensions "kvm: disabled by bios"21:44
f4d3Hello, it's me21:44
TJ-OerHeks: I doubt it; there's no sign of ACPI functions defined by the DSDT that the Linux ACPI core doesn't understand.21:45
int-mainTJ- : Yeah. I don't see any specific option to enable that. Just tell me what do I do?21:45
int-mainHas been months since I have been trying. It used to work on Linux, one day out of blue it stops working and then it never worked on any distro21:45
TJ-int-main: OerHeks but, it's worth trying. edit /etc/default/grub and where you see "Windows 2013" try instead "Windows 2012" - after altering and saving the file do "sudo update-grub" of course, and a reboot21:45
daftykinsnotalentgeek: you're definitely using the oracle one right?21:46
int-mainTJ- : Okay. On it21:46
VapezHello i have a question, it's safe to autoremove these? http://pastebin.com/t3kh9H4d21:46
TJ-int-main: there *may* be an option in the PC's firmware Setup menus to influence the Wifi, but not sure what to look for in this case. Also, the enabling VT-d and such will be there too21:46
notalentgeekYES! Before it was OpenJDK and it was fine.21:47
notalentgeekdaftykins, YES! Before it was OpenJDK and it was fine.21:47
threeminutemontanotalentgeek: Disclaimer. I do not use java. It seems you might be better off using multiple copies of Java instead of downgrading. see http://www.confluxtechnologies.com/blog/on-ubuntu-install-multiple-version-of-java21:47
daftykinsnotalentgeek: confirm "javac -version" ?21:47

daftykinsok good stuff21:48
helpwithxbindCould anyone point me to a channel to get assistance with xbindkeys?21:48
int-mainTJ- : there is nothing for Wifi. I have searched everything.21:48
notalentgeekthreeminutemonta, I will look into it.21:48
daftykinsnotalentgeek: so where did you get it? a lot of people install the webupd8 repo to get oracle java.21:48
Guest7367daftykins: just booted up live mode, i need to do this through the terminal right?21:49
TJ-int-main: could be something totally unrelated to 'wifi' and be something like 'platform services' or 'hotkey' or something else wierd; but as I recall the other users with that issue didn't report seeing such. We know why it happens - the code in the ACPI DSDT is broken and specific to Windows and the HP drivers they provide for that21:49
notalentgeekdaftykins, I forgot :( I think it was from ppa because I do not remember that I have knowledge to install Java from .tar.gz.21:50
daftykinsGuest7367: yep21:50
daftykinsnotalentgeek: "dpkg -l | grep java" -> look for 8 -> "apt-cache policy <that_package_name>" -> look at the URL21:50
notalentgeekthreeminutemonta, I only have one Java from sudo update-alternatives --config java.21:50
notalentgeekdaftykins, I will try!21:51
TJ-!info openjdk-8-jre | notalentgeek daftykins "javac -version"  gives "javac 1.8.0_66-internal"21:51

daftykinsTJ-: ooh that's good to know :>21:51
int-mainTJ- : Nope. Not that either21:51
daftykinsnotalentgeek: sounds like you never switched from open to oracle, you need to play with the "update-alternatives" command i think21:52
TJ-int-main: *sigh* ... HP, and Acer, have become really bad recently at causing problems for Linux due to Windows-specific extensions in their firmware, this is 1 of the more annoying issues it causes21:52

int-mainTJ- : No. There is no acer hardware here.21:55

Guest7367daftykins: ok awesome21:56
MonkeyDustdaftykins  are lsblk21:56
notalentgeekdaftykins, It says I only have one option... Nothing to configure.21:56
MonkeyDustdaftykins  or lsblk*21:57
TJ-int-main: OK, because some HPs are known to use it, and that HPQ6001 device was added to acer-wmi's norfkill_ids structure specifically to ensure rkfill works21:57
daftykinsnotalentgeek: and which is that?21:57
OerHeksTJ-, you asked this before, > <TJ-> int-main: is hp-wmi blacklisted21:57
daftykinsMonkeyDust: true, that :>21:57
notalentgeekdaftykins, There is only one alternative in link group java (providing /usr/bin/java): /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/bin/java Nothing to configure.21:57
int-mainTJ- : I don't think there is anything possibly left.21:57
Guest7367daftykins: output says invalid option -- '1'21:57
daftykinsGuest7367: it's a lowercase L21:58
TJ-int-main: there's one thing. remove the blacklist for hp-wmi and ensure it loads at boot-time, with the acpi_osi=... still in place21:58
Guest7367daftykins: my bad21:58
Guest7367daftykins: the font in this chat through me off21:58
TJ-int-main: ensure you haven't blacklisted hp-wireless too!21:59
TJ-int-main: the effect we're trying to achieve by doing that is to have the Linux drivers that key off those devices active, AND do this when the ACPI DSDT is providing the services they expect to find (due to the acpi_osi=Windows 2012/3 option)21:59
daftykinsnotalentgeek: ok looks like webupd8 don't have 6 and actually just script the install anyway; see https://askubuntu.com/questions/67909/how-do-i-install-oracle-jdk-6 for install, then run the update-alternatives command as earlier to switch from 8 to 622:00
TJ-int-main: doing "modinfo -F alias hp-wireless" shows you that module is 'wired' to managed that device, if found.22:00
notalentgeekdaftykins, So that method will make me have two version of Java right?22:01
daftykinsnotalentgeek: oh i should've said to run "sudo update-alternatives --config javac" since we need to check the compiler, not sure if i did or said java on the end. yep two versions, but as long as you switch between them with update-alternatives all will be gravy.22:02
VapezI have a big problem, when i go for apt-get upgrade it ask me to autoremove, it's safe to remove these: http://pastebin.com/s9bHgrC2 ?22:02

VapezWhat if autoremove?22:03
Vapezit's will break the kernel?22:04
Vapezit will*22:04
daftykinswell you can do it, reboot - and see if everything works :) you'll only be a package install away from getting it back on.22:04
notalentgeekdaftykins, Since when Oracle required me to Sign In to download Java lol...22:04
Vapezit's safe?22:04
daftykinsVapez: it's likely suggesting to remove old versions, check you have multiple with "dpkg -l | grep linux-"22:04

Guest7367daftykins ok but there was a space in the first command you told me to run too huh? i didn't put it in there do i need to re run it?22:11
TJ-int-main: last-ditch but... have you tried resetting to the firmware's factory default settings (taking care not to erase the Ubuntu entry in the EFI boot menu)22:12
int-mainOerHeks : it used to work out of box. I was on Arch, then one day it kept auto toggling between disabled and enabled. I thought it was arch problem so I installed ubuntu and set it up fine with working wifi, little later it stopped working. Had to move to W10 to make it work later.22:12

notalentgeekdaftykins, Hello, I have installed .bin file. However as the link you gave me, I need to put the JDK6 into usr/lib/jvm. The thing is that I do not know where is JDK6 located.22:14
TJ-int-main: In your dmesg output there is no PCI wifi device reported at all22:14
int-mainTJ- : okay. Im here.22:14
int-mainTJ- : what does that mean? faulty hardware?22:15
TJ-int-main: ahhh, scratch that, I didn't look hard enough, it is there! "rt2800pci 0000:07:00.0 wlo1: renamed from wlan0"22:15
daftykinsGuest7367: check the output of "mount" - it should show sda2 at /mnt .22:15
notalentgeekdaftykins, Never mind I am dumb. I get the JDK6 folder but I cannot copy it into usr/lib/jvm should I change the permission in usr/lib/jvm folder? How to do so?22:15
int-mainfor a moment there, i was really happy22:15
TJ-int-main: same here... then I noticed the browser window was incorrectly showing no scrollbar on the dmesg page and it was off the bottom!22:16
daftykinsnotalentgeek: it doesn't matter where it is, just test the javac binary to start with by running it where it is now against your code.22:16
TJ-int-main: what if "rfkill list" reporting right now?22:16
notalentgeekdaftykins, The javac -version is still 1.8.22:17
int-mainTJ- : phy0 : Wireless LAN Soft blocked: No Hard Blocked : yes22:17
notalentgeekdaftykins, My program still not working.22:18
TJ-int-main: does it change if you press the wifi hot-key *once* ?22:18
daftykinsnotalentgeek: you have to give it the FULL path to run javac from where it is in the java 6 path right now, OBVIOUSLY tying "javac..."is going to use the v8.22:18
TJ-int-main: there was one issue we had where it was altering the soft-block not the hard-block, and I built a fixed driver for that user22:18
int-mainTJ- : soft blocked does22:18
TJ-int-main: oooo... you might have the same issue then22:19
int-mainTJ- : was that driver for RT3290 too?22:19
TJ-int-main: it was the hp-wireless/ HPQ6001 device I seem to recall. I'd have to trawl my records for what I did precisely22:20
Guest7367daftykins: do i need to be in a certain directory to run those?22:21

Pinkamena_DI have tried to convert the pfx to pem using openSSL but it asks for a password. I only have one password which is asked for when logging on in windows, and it does not work when converting with openssl22:27

hanshenrikwhat is the correct way to alias a binary in /usr/local/bin? and how can I make 1? softlink? hardlink? something else? for example, when I apt-get install vim; Aptitude will alias /usr/local/bin/vi as /usr/local/bin/vim (if I recall correctly)22:27

k1l!ru | Odesit22:37
daftykinsnotalentgeek: ok i think you're overthinking this. find the JDK 6 path, go into it, find the /bin, find the javac, then run *that* javac with its' full path, i.e. /path/to/JDK6/bin/javac <my code>22:37

TJ-notalentgeek: it is usually set to one of the JREs under "/usr/lib/jvm/"22:38
TJ-daftykins: notalentgeek: does it definitely want the Java Compiler (javac), rather than the Java VM (java) ?22:39
notalentgeekdaftykins, Wait looks like in my Processing IDE it comes with its own Java folder.22:39
daftykinsTJ-: notalentgeek is compiling code apparently.22:39

notalentgeekMy code is not in .java but in .pde. The compilation is first done within Processing IDE then goes to normal Java compiling method.22:40

Demon_Jesterhey guys, I am doing HDD recovery, and i have the internal HDD hooked up via usb (with device idk how to describe) anyways, this HDD didn't have OS on it, ans was used to store files on a windows machine, in /dev it just shows sdb (not sdb1, sdb2 etc..) am I still able to mount it, and attempt to recover the files?22:40
daftykinsand so the truth comes out, later than wouldn't helped ;)22:40

Demon_Jesterk1l, and for some reason I have this 3 way adapter to usb, it doesn't work on my pc anymore (was working yesterday when I was using another HDD) so I am using linux OS22:47
Demon_Jesterdaftykins, sorry, uhh parted is not on my pc, so lsblk is all I have is that ok?22:48
lost1nfounddaftykins: yeah, but i needed systemd, and needed a recent boost library. im not blaming ubuntu or anything as i realize its not an lts release, but ive got to fix it somehow, and hopefully fixing this can help 16.04 avoid the issue :)22:48
lost1nfound15.04 was extremely stable however22:48

lost1nfoundI also don't feel like i have the proper level of detail required to file a bug report, as I don't have evidence of what exactly is crashing... cant tell if its a kernel panic or if the network driver is just hanging/crashing, etc. i know the aws support guys have been working with canonical on it a bit, but im not sure where that discussion is taking place. should we purchase commercial support perhap22:52
lost1nfounds, or would they only support 14.04LTS?22:52
daftykinslost1nfound: LTS is best22:53
daftykinstalk to amazon about whether it's better running LTS on their gear, if that's ec222:53
lost1nfounddaftykins: yes ec2, but, im stuck with 15.04 at minimum unless i want to get systemd working on 14.04 but that sounds a bit messy. ill switch to and stay on LTS when 16.04 is released. do you know if canonical's commercial support will cover 15.x?22:54

TJ-int-main: if so, do "sudo dkms install -m hp-wmi -v 1.01"22:57

jesuslovesyouthiUbuntu 14.04 default version is ff 42 but the newest is ff 43.*23:00
k1ljesuslovesyouthi: ubuntu ships updates. you only need to run the system updates. on terminal use "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade"23:00
TJ-int-main: that means the tar command wasn't run correctly. From the Downloads directory where the tar.z is: "sudo tar -C / -xzf hp-wmi.dkms.tar.gz"23:00
TJ-int-main: that "-C /" makes tar change to the / directory to run the command23:01
jesuslovesyouthik1l: So there's no way outside of ubuntu repos or a lot of work to get the lastest version?23:01

TJ-int-main: right, so we now ensure the current module is unloaded with "sudo modprobe -r hp-wmi" then load the new one with "sudo modprobe hp-wmi" ... press the WiFi hot-key and check what "rfkill list" reports. Do that several times: press key, check rfkill, repeat... and see if the hard kill switch reports a change rather than the soft23:07
int-mainTJ- : no, it only toggles soft block23:10
int-mainTJ- : wait, your module is named hp-wmi and the default one is hp_wmi and sudo modprobe hp-wmi doesn't load hp-wmi23:11
TJ-int-main: lets check the correct module was used: does "modinfo -F filename hp-wmi" end in "updates/dkms/hp-wmi.ko" ?23:12

int-mainIf this worked before, whats changed?23:18
int-mainEven the same ISO doesn't work.23:18
TJ-int-main: because some state that is saved in non-volatile RAM has changed, and we have no way of changing it (because we don't know what has changed). This is the problem with these opaque proprietary bits23:18
TJ-int-main: there used to be silly tricks like... pressing the hot-key rapidly at POST time, before the OS started, would toggle its state... it depends on model, on firmware version, hardware chipset... who knows!?23:19
int-mainI have tried that thing.23:19
int-mainLets just peacefully move to windows 1023:20
TJ-int-main: I noticed in the August issue we found an option in the firmware Setup menus something like "Network boot enable" and that seemed to have some kind of effect on enabling the wifi!23:20

TJ-int-main: where you'd expect it only to affect the wired interface, for PXE boot services, it affected the Wifi too, when disabled23:20

int-mainAsked on reddit, stackoverflow and other places too, no help23:21
