Bashing-omdigitalboy01: The ubuntu way to install grub ' sudo grub-install /dev/sdX ' where the 'X' is drive a,b,c ect ....00:00
digitalboy01Bashing-om ok!00:00
EriC^^are you creating your own distro?00:01
mcphailgenii: "dpkg-deb -X package.deb ." might be an easier way to get at the contents ;)00:02
digitalboy01EriC^^ Not exactly but I would like to understand the most from my mistakes..00:02
geniimcphail: There's more than one way, I'm just giving the method I'm most familiar with00:02

b00i cant load megaraid_sas kernel driver, anyone have any ides?00:08
bekksb00: Why cant you load it?00:08
b00i dont know, i dont get a error msg00:09
geniiThen how do you know it didn't load?00:09
bekksb00: how are you trying to load it?00:09
b00modprobe megaraid_sas00:10
Algebr`I get this ubuntu error as well when many usb devices are plugged in, also cryptic: [Tue Jan  5 15:06:54 2016] usb 3-9.7.6: ep 0x2 - rounding interval to 8 microframes, ep desc says 10 microframes00:11
bekksAlgebr`: and what is affected by that message?00:11
bekksb00: So look at dmesg.00:12
Algebr`I am unable to use those devices.00:13
Algebr`And how can I tell if I'm using xhci or ehci?00:13
b00bekks, just says the firmware loaded correctly00:13
bekksb00: And how do you know it didnt load then?00:16
b00the card doesnt show up in megaraid storage manager00:16
geniiAlgebr`: Whatever driver is being used for a device is usually in the results of sudo lshw. So if it's a USB thing, examine the results of: sudo lshw -C bus      ...drivername is in the line for each that starts with "configuration"00:18
Algebr`genii: thank you. I'm seeing that my machine loaded both the xhci and ehci drivers. I was hoping there was a way to disable the xhci module and only use ehci without having to mess with BIOS00:19
geniiAlgebr`: The lshw will list all the usb ports and devices, and what drivers if any each is using. If you just want to see if a specific driver is loaded, you can just view the results of lsmod instead00:20
danmulveycan someone hilight my name please? trying to make sure this script is running properly, thanks!00:21
geniiAlgebr`: If you have mixed USB2 and USB3 ports, you will still need both the xhci and the ehci00:21

danmulveythanks genii! working just as I was hoping for haha00:22
notabot_hi how can i share my ubuntu screen to an amazon fire tv?00:43
AnnaOnLinuxI am trying to decide on a tiling window manager. I am currently looking between i3 and awesomewm.00:44

notabot_wow this sucks, i'm on 14.04 lts because lts is the only reasonable choice i was told01:16
daftykinsmiyzu: what's the version? what's the system type?01:16
notabot_now this apparently doesnt support miracleCast01:16

Mo0Owhat about https://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/39166/01:16
daftykinsdefine doesn't support?01:16
notabot_because it has all kinds of dependencies like systemd and whatever01:16

daftykinsyou're getting it from a funny source if it needs systemd o001:16

daftykinsno it's not support01:20
notabot_exciting i mean01:20
daftykinsand as the link says it's been fixed in newer kernels01:20
notabot_i see01:21
notabot_daftykins: so would you say https://github.com/albfan/miraclecast is a funny source?01:21
notabot_i will just try building it01:21
daftykinswe don't support PPAs so it's your responsibility to find a source for what you want to run01:21
notabot_hope it works on 14.0401:22
notabot_daftykins: i'm not sure i understood correctly or got confused by Mo0O, does 14.04 support systemd?01:22
notabot_it is listed as a dependency01:22
daftykinssystemd is in 15.04 and 15.1001:22
daftykinsstop that.01:23
notabot_i never thought i would ever say that, but in windows it just works out of the box01:23
notabot_miracast i mean, which you have to admit is pretty fly01:24

notabot_is there a painless and smooth way to upgrade 14.04 to 15?01:28
Mo0Onotabot_: did you look for a wiki page before asking?01:28
daftykinsmay need to disable LTS only upgrade prior to that mind01:28
notabot_daftykins: will this mess up my system possibly? what's the probability?01:28
daftykinsi don't believe in upgrades01:29
notabot_Mo0O: wiki pages dont actually tell the truth about painlessness01:29
daftykinshow could they? an upgrade today is different from an upgrade tomorrow, the from and to changes.01:29

daftykinsyour mileage may vary.01:42

Toba_no other distro has ever done this to me01:43
Mo0Ome you're welcome01:43
notabot_Toba_: i learned to accept that ubuntu is still in a stop gap measure state of being really conveniently usable01:44
hack_Hey, I have an issue with non-gui terminals and the login screen being rendered at a resolution that is waaaay too small to see.  I got grub fixed to be readable by modifying /etc/default/grub like so: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14416476/01:45
notabot_Toba_: it can't even do miracast01:45
hack_but ... once it passes grub it goes right back to 1920x108001:45

Mo0Onotabot_: it can do everythings, you just need to know how to fix issues ;)01:47
notabot_yeah but then i am doing it, not it01:47
hack_So I need to know, how on earth am I supposed to force the driver to use the correct max res of 1360x768 (which grub cannot do for some reason)01:47
notabot_but yeah, i do respect all the work that went into it by altruistic contributors01:47
Toba_i'm just so pissed that basic features like "having a mouse" are breaking01:47

Mo0Ohack_: you're talking about tty, right?01:48
hack_yes I am, as well as the lightdm login screen01:48
Mo0OToba_: it's an xorg issue, or gnome issue, not directly an ubuntu issue01:49
hack_after that it goes to the correct res I set in the display settings01:49
Mo0OToba_: 1rst) check you mouse -using another one-, 2) try another wm, 3) try to fix xorg01:50
Mo0Omost of the time it's a mouse -hardware- issue01:50

daftykinsgrab the EDID and use that if you're having issues there02:08

CissssaHi again. I want to test Ubuntu (in a VM) before actually installing it. Does anyone know where I can find the optimal/best/whatever VM settings to make it run as good as it can? Thanks! :)02:10
hack_um, config file location(s) relevant to the EDID overriding?02:11
notabot_hack_: in /etc/grub.d/00_header put a "set gfxpayload=keep" below the line that says "set gfxmode=${GRUB_GFXMODE}" or something02:11
notabot_Cissssa: just give it 4GB RAM02:12

notabot_Cissssa: yesp02:12
Cissssanotabot_: Sounds to good to be true!02:12
hack_notabot_: um ... that's the best grub supports but not the best the monitor supports, so I would rather somehow force the *actual* ideal resolution02:13
notabot_that's just how ubuntu does it02:13
Cissssanotabot_: I'll keep you responsible for everything that happens to that VM from now on! :D02:13
notabot_hack_: you set it by the "GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768x32" in /etc/default/grub02:14
notabot_it just isnt preserved without the set gfxpayload=keep02:14
notabot_then you have to run update-grub again02:15

joan_when sharing files via nfsv3, what has to be done in order to avoid the client hanging (which is using automounter) when the server is shutdown?

daftykinsyou are running 'sudo update-grub' right?02:34

Silurianyes, I'm getting there02:56
SilurianBasically , it refuses to connect with the office wifi, when it could connect the previous day02:56
Cardude419Hi, quick question about raid 1: if one drive fails and i replace it, does the replacement drive have to be the exact same model hard drive or does it just have to have the same or more space?02:57
Silurianthis is recurring, happens each day02:57
SilurianI've found that if I reset the system time to the previous day, then it will connect without issue02:57
Silurianafter which time I can reset the system time correctly, and connect and reconnect at leisure02:58
OerHeksCardude419, minimal same space02:58
eclectichedgehogandornaut: is it using the generic or low latency version of that kernel as you seem to have both installed02:58
Cardude419OerHeks: thanks02:58
andornauteclectichedgehog: lowlatency03:00
eclectichedgehogandornaut: then it seems like you only have the generic headers03:00
andornauteclectichedgehog: ah, i'll try installing the lowlatency headers. one sec.03:01
andornauteclectichedgehog: that got me up and running, thanks. I still do get those errors re: 4.2.0 though. Not really a big deal, but it'd be nice to know what's going on.03:05
sam_yanIn ubuntu15.04,and the init is systemd but why upstart also running ?03:05
eclectichedgehogandornaut: cool, yeah not sure why you still get that message, maybe a reboot might clear it or, reinstalling the nvidia drivers03:07
andornauteclectichedgehog: this worked update-initramfs -d -k 4.2.0-22-generic03:08
andornaut-d removes an initrmfs and -k specifies the kernel vers03:09
andornautnow `update-initramfs` -u just updates the 3.13 kernels03:09

FelixFire619can ubuntu livecd boot into OS from usb with NO HDD in the machine?03:10
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: if you mean can you run a live ubuntu image off a usb then yes03:11
FelixFire619kubuntu, slax nore a few other LiveCD's will boot in my wifes laptop while the hard drive is unplugged,03:11
FelixFire619Does a physical hard drive have to be present in ubuntu livecd in order for it to boot properly?03:12
OerHeksFelixFire619, no, eclectichedgehog is right, no need to, maybe something else is going wrong.03:12
OerHeksso what error do you get or what happens when you try?03:13
FelixFire619I've managed to find that the other os's, dont boot because of hdd, found out by putting in a working hdd and they booted.03:13
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: is the laptop detecting the usb drive before non existent hdd03:13
FelixFire619It is imparitive that i dont need a physical hdd03:13
OerHeksmaybe the bios contains a hdd image still, reset that.03:13
krillionhello room03:13
FelixFire619eclectichedgehog: it will boot and then stop at x start03:13
FelixFire619OerHeks: thanks for the tip will try03:14
en0xhi, what is the easy way to upgrade from 12.04.4 lts to 12.04.5 lts?03:14
eclectichedgehogen0x: just run regular updates03:14
OerHeksen0x, just run upgrades03:14
FelixFire619OerHeks: i dont get an error, it goes threw the entire process and when i should see login i see blackness even with a vga second monitor attached03:14
en0xoh ok thanks guys03:15
OerHeksFelixFire619, and with HDD it boots straight into the installermenu/livemode?03:15
FelixFire619but when i dont get a hdd put in it it wont load X on screen03:16
OerHeksthen i guess it needs a bios reset/setup03:16
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: sounds like its either not detecting your graphics or its assigning the wrong graphics display03:16
FelixFire619also it takes me 12hrs to dl a iso03:16
FelixFire619so i need to know for sure if the ubuntu livecd will work with no hdd physically present03:16
FelixFire619eclect when the hdd's there it works flawlessly03:16
OerHeksIt should.03:16
FelixFire619ok thank you, i'll give it a try and return with more Official ubuntu os questions if needed03:17
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: a usb image should would as another drive03:17
schooler123I am trying to install Ubuntu via USB to my computer, but am getting many errors like Source ID XXXX was not found.03:17
FelixFire619eclectichedgehog: i can get usb working i can get it to go all the way to X login, but if it does not have a hdd it wont load display, i've tested same images with hdd plugged in and it works perfectly03:18
schooler123It has been removing conflicting operating system files for a long time now03:19
jeffreylevesquedoes systemd scripts have to have a specific extension (i.e. conf)?03:19
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: simple answer, never buy a laptop from that manufacturer again if thats the case03:19
FelixFire619eclectichedgehog: if you saw the laptop (mind you it was free) you'd understand why The hdd issue is the cheapest fix but i cant afford it yet03:20

SonikkuAmericakrillion: Did you upload the text of your wp-config.php file to it by accident?03:21
schooler123Anyone help?03:22
SonikkuAmericaschooler123: If you're reinstalling or installing over another Ubuntu version, that's going to take a while.03:23
krillionfresh install ... php mysql apache2 all locked and loaded... copied the sample config renamed it and configured it03:23
schooler123SonikkuAmerica: How long would you estimate "a while"03:23
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: i would fire off a question to the manufacturers support page/forum as this seems weird, never came across a laptop that needs a hdd to boot a useb03:23
FelixFire619eclectichedgehog: it will boot the usb once again03:24
FelixFire619I dont know how many times i've made clear IT BOOTS FINE<<<< untill the os tries to load X03:24
OerHeks.. did you check the bios thing yet, FelixFire619 ?03:25
FelixFire619once X loads the 'login screen' the screens go blank03:25
FelixFire619I'm checking now03:25
SonikkuAmericaschooler123: For as long as it needs to get rid of the old stuff... I just tend to rm -rf everything but the /home folder on the target before I even continue installing, then I select "Something Else," select the partition and file system (the same exact type as the one before it), and then make sure the partition isn't going to be formatted.03:25
eclectichedgehogFelixFire619: does the laptop have an nvidia graphic chip in it?03:27
schooler123SonikkuAmerica: The existing installation was a new installation. I had to restart because my internet was cut in the middle.03:27
schooler123in the middle of the first new installation03:29

ajnrsomsip, so after that what is the next step06:06
somsipajnr: install the package on the target machine - sudo dpkg -i *.deb (if it's a deb - not sure actually)06:07
ajnrsomsip, I did File > Generate package download script, I named it g++package, in that file #!/bin/sh content is there06:07
ajnrsomsip, two machines are not connected.06:07

ajnrin the offline machine I used bootable ubuntu in USB06:19
ajnrsomsip in the offline machine I used bootable ubuntu in USB06:19
somsipajnr: so use the alternative given at the very bottom of the page I linked for you06:19
ajnrsomsip, after installation I have checked that gcc is installed by default but not g++06:19

ajnrthis one ?06:21
somsipajnr: no https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Synaptic/PackageDownloadScript06:21
=== red__ is now known as nenis43
ajnrsomsip, very last line is sudo dpkg -i *.deb06:22
somsipajnr: it is06:22
ajnrsomsip, I think I am misunderstood, what I understand is that, in the offline machine I need to generate a .sh file from the synaptic package manager and that .sh file need to copy to the online machine where I can download the packages and those packages need to copy to the offline machine to install using dpkg command. Right ? if it is right , for this offline machine need to have synaptic which I dint have.06:26
somsipajnr: from what I read on that page, you generate a deb which is then copied to the target machine and installed with dpkg. But I've never done this so I could be wrong. I'll leave it to someone else to clarify06:27
iAmerikanajnr: you would generate the package on the online machine.06:28
iAmerikanthen the offline machine needs to have dpkg06:28
iAmerikanthen you'd transfer the file from the online machine to the offline via usb or cd06:29

_klamath_Hi all, just installed bodhi an ubuntu (trusty) based distribution. Have network problems, it connects once every 10 reboot. The problem could be net interface 'qualcom Atheros Killer network E2200'. Read in internet various posts but with newer kernel the problem should have been solved; my kernel version is 3.16.0-45-generic. Anyone with this net interface have solved the problem ?08:18
newUserI have a question about the command 'apt-get install mysql'. I know that this command will install the mysql db and it'll also create the ncessary start and stop scripts. I also know that the command will create a mysql user, but I don't know when apt-get install will create a user... for example 'apt-get install vim'  woldn't create a user. So my08:18
newUserquestion is when will apt-get install create a user?08:18
dotpixisnewUser: it creats new users?08:19
newUserdotpixis: yes I think it does... but I'm getting insecure cause you asked :)08:20
dotpixisnewUser: my best guess is that because it's a server thing08:20
dotpixismysql is a server database thing, so it needs a new user for security purposes <end of guess>.08:21
dotpixisit's probabily done in the configuration of mysql not specifically in the apt-get command08:22
dotpixisso the answer to your question is that it will create a new user if the program's config create's a new user.08:22
newUserdotpixis: thanks for the information, now I know that it depends on the installation script of the package08:23
dotpixisnewUser: glad to help08:23
somsipdotpixis: right on the first point (it's a service and running under a unpriviledged user is more secure) but the creation will be done by one of the script bundled in the package, not necessarily by the core package (eg - the pre-install script rather than the install-mysql script)08:23
newUsersomsip: thanks for the detailed information08:26

Jumbanoodleking_: That's not true, the software center is full of packages without them. Most of it really.13:29
baizonnoodleking_: restart and it should be fixed13:29
noodleking_baizon, will give that a shot in a mo.13:29
noodleking_Jumba, well I guess I haven't used any of them yet.13:29
Jumbanoodleking_: See I rarely use the Software center13:30
Jumbanoodleking_: I always just download everything from the terminal13:30
noodleking_Jumba, I usually go with apt, unless the version I'm after is not in the repositories, in which case git/download from the site/whatever.13:30
Jumbanoodleking_: Yeah, so why did you use the Software center this time?13:31
noodleking_Jumba, just that virtualbox 4.3.. wouldn't upgrade to 5...13:31
noodleking_Jumba, possibly because it was an open source version and everything's moved over to the Oracle version, I really don't know. There was some conflict.13:32
JumbaWeird Software center only has the 32bit version13:32
noodleking_removed virtualbox, then used the Oracle download (which virtualbox had recommended installing, initially).13:32
noodleking_Jumba, well the download I took from Oracle's page was 64bit.13:33
contextmcphail: yeah, i was hoping not :-/ the internets shows its possible (i think?)13:33
noodleking_Jumba, and all my vms are 64bit (well, the opensuse and ubuntu desktop vms).13:33
Jumbanoodleking_: Yeah then use that, oddly enough though I got the icon and everything from the software center13:33
Jumbanoodleking_: Yeah I never use 32 bit13:33
noodleking_Jumba, exactly what I was expecting.13:33

MrGeneral_Hello folks. I have an internal drive, ext4, and I am trying to copying files from Windows. Folders are ok, no errors displayed if I copy a folder with .txt inside. But when I copy a .rar, .iso, .exe or any other, I get a message in windows saying that the file permissions won't be kept. I've tried hundreds of different configs to see if it'll work. Any idea?14:58
MrGeneral_this is in samba btw14:59
mgolischthats to be expected14:59
MyrttiWindows filesystems can't keep the same kind of file permissions that *nixes have, so in some level this is not really unexpected14:59
mgolischlinux does not support ntfs acls14:59

murray2kHey guys, I'm adding a relatively new disk to my raid and mdstat marks it faulty immediately. But it passes smart and was working fine a few days ago, as an external drive. Can it really be broken already?17:54

axsuulI have a process /usr/bin/redis that's running and taking up 100% CPU resources + network. I suspect its a rogue one. I've tried killing and removing the actual bin file, but it just ends up reappearing by itself. How can I track down the culprit?18:02

neredsenvyIs it possible to install Plasma Desktop on Ubuntu ?? I found few guides but they are all for Kubuntu18:16
OerHeksneredsenvy, plasma is part of KDE/Kubuntu, so yes18:17
ioriaubuntubuntu, try to follow the last 4 posts of this thread https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=12108618:17

marusi have ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop since log time ago, i want to install new version, is there a way or procedure, so that i have all my packages and config backup18:18
ioriaubuntubuntu, you can also try a new user or Guest Account (if exists in Kubuntu), or purge and reinstalling ark18:19
ubuntubuntuioria: Great idea. Thank you. I will try that.18:19
ioriaubuntubuntu, good luck18:19

axsuulis there any way to prevent a process from running by name?18:22

OerHeksneredsenvy, you might want to check in #kubuntu too, i think plasma is now standard, that test repo is old18:27

DrtroIs it safe to uninstall applications that come with your distro? I've read online that you shouldn't but that sounds like misinformation.18:35
ubuntubuntuioria: Thx18:36
OerHeksDrtro, you can, if it is not a dependencie of the desktop, like libreoffice18:36
ioriaubuntubuntu, no problem18:37
tgm4883You could even uninstall libreofice18:40
tgm4883it would just uninstall the desktop metapackage18:40

OerHeks /var/log/auth likely18:50
[Mew2]how do admins normally monitor access?18:50
[Mew2]for all ports18:50
Pici[Mew2]: things should log to /var/log/auth.log, there tools out there that audit those and/or prevent access based on recurring bad logins. fail2ban and logwatch come to mind.18:52
jero-[Mew2]: each open port is opened by a service, and each service is responsible for producing its logging information. you may have dedicated files for some services, global logs for some others18:52

axsuulI have an issue where /usr/bin/redis is always running AND i'm not sure what's causing it to run. I keep killing it everytime manually and I remove the actual bin file but it comes back. How do I kill it and prevent it from running for good?19:01
OerHeksFelixFire619, unlikely, your system config had the hdd still in it, that old data prevented further booting i guess. no usb device should be capable of doing that.19:02
llldinoaxsuul, You can do "lsof /usr/bin/redis" to see what's calling it to run19:02

bujjiiif i do this "mount -o loop -t iso9660 image-linux.iso   <location> "19:07
bujjiiaxsuul: can you assist please?19:07
axsuulsorry I have no idea19:08
nicomachusbujjii: if you do that... what?19:08
jdwwattswho put it there19:08
geniibujjii: What are you attempting to do with the iso file?19:08
bujjiinicomachus: i downloaded 100+gb file19:09
bujjiiand i make it as a single iso file..that is a software19:09
_klamath_the ethernet card is a qualcom atheros killer e2200 and when I can't connect, dmesg shows it regularly, alx module is loaded and with ifconfig it seems it obtains just ipv6 address19:09

bujjiigenii: as i asked ""mount -o loop -t iso9660 image-linux.iso   <location> " if i do that what will happen?19:11
geniibujjii: So you should make a Cd/DVD/BluRay/USB out of the iso file and install from that19:11
DrtroRAVEfinity has some nice themes, but only a few icon sets. Where do you guys find your icons?19:11
bujjiigenii: so i shoud have to copy that iso file into a usb?19:11
llldinobujjii, Doing that command will mount the ISO file as read-only at the location you specify19:12
nicomachusbujjii: it's 100+ GB? what is the .iso?19:12
geniibujjii: If you substitute for instance /mnt for <location> and preface the command with sudo, the iso contents should be available to be viewed unther the directory /mnt19:12
nicomachusno linux image should be 100+gb.19:12
geniibujjii: It is usually problemmatic to install things from a mounted iso file rather than the device or media it was meant to be put on19:12
axsuulllldino: i see kind of the same thing19:13
bujjiinicomachus: i told before i downloaded 100_gb files and make a single iso19:14
axsuulis there any way to disable a process from being run for a specific user19:14
bujjiigenii:so i should make it as a usb?19:15
llldinoaxsuul, The entry in the 6th colum will tell you what called the process, also the 2nd colum is the PID. If you poke around /proc/<PID>/ you might get some information on what the process is doing19:16
jdwwattsyou need to download a free piece of software that makes usbs mountable19:17
geniibujjii: If this is an Ubuntu iso file, it can be made directly onto a USB with the dd command, like: sudo dd if=name-of-isofile.iso of=/dev/sdX  where sdX is the name of the USB stick19:19

bujjiidaftykins: those iso files i downloaded and i did make a dingle iso file19:24
bujjiidaftykins: the next step is mount..19:24
geniibujjii: As I earlier said, if you do for instance: sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 image-linux.iso /mnt    ...then you should be able to view the contents inside the /mnt directory after that. Whether you will be able to install anything from there, is another matter19:24

geniidaftykins: Seems to be https://www.blackducksoftware.com/19:27
bujjiigenii: yes19:27
daftykinsbujjii: so trying to mount this ISO isn't actually the correct approach at all.19:27
geniibujjii: This is not really an Ubuntu support question, but rather a support question for Black Duck support staff19:28
milhouse_well sorry then. I thought 1 out of 2k people could know the answer and help a human being that cannot find help in any other place...19:28
bujjiigenii: yes,but the mount part i am asking...how it wll be.19:28
geniibujjii: It will be as I already twice described19:28
daftykinsbujjii: but like i just said mounting is wrong.19:29
bujjiiso i should be do it from usb?19:29
daftykinswhere are you trying to install it, the physical PC or a virtual machine?19:29
bujjiion the linux server..its having 1.2T (4*300)for the installation19:30
daftykinsbujjii: then yes you are trying to ask for support for an OS in another OS's support channel, also the idea you glued together a stack of ISOs into one sounds like a huge mistake. go and find their support, you can't ask here.19:31
FelixFire619OerHeks: as this is not exactly ubuntu based, can i pm you for a min or two? if you use crypto i'll tip you19:33
bujjiidaftykins: yes right,initially i was asked this one ""mount -o loop -t iso9660 image-linux.iso   <location> " what will happen if i do this (i should mount usb and then do it?)19:35
daftykinsbujjii: so now i have to tell you for the third time that trying to mount an ISO makes no sense for installing an OS19:35
daftykinsbujjii: so unless you can explain that, we're done here...19:35
geniidaftykins: It is not really an OS but they have a set of server auditing and reporting tools19:35
bujjiigenii: yes genii19:36
daftykinsstill, consult their support - i'd bet you ruined the images when you glued them all together19:36
geniibujjii: Your best course of action is to consult their support staff, as already recommended several times to you now19:37
ioriabujjii, to mount an iso ( like to see its content) you just do    sudo mount -o loop file.iso   mountepoint_dir , there is also a gui, gmountiso19:37

Droanyone using eclipse on ubuntu 14.04 ?20:21
Droits always freezing, i don't know why20:21
k_dog345Dro: I had some issues with intelliJ (which is java-based like eclipse). I had freezing issues, and they were resolved by killing the ibus-daemon. 'sudo killall ibus-daemon'. Give that a try (shot in the wild I know).20:23
daftykinsDro: try a java dev channel20:23
Drok_dog345, but this will not cause any problem ?20:24
k_dog345Dro: It should not, if it does just reboot and it will be automatically loaded any way. I completly disable ibus-daemon because it also interferes with pgadmin320:25
Drok_dog345, and whats the ibus-daemon ?20:25
ioriak_dog345,  don't want to be rude, but the audio jack is plugged in the correct place ?20:25

ikonialast or look at the syslog20:52
OneM_IndustriesThe syslog, how would I do that?20:53

ovidiugHey guys, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 alongside Win7 but it doesn't recognize my Win7 partitinos. When I run Gparted in Ubuntu it says that /dev/sda contains GPT signatures, but I only have Win installed on my machine. Anyone knows how can I fix this issue so I can install Ubuntu properly?20:58
bekksNothing being logged doesnt mean hardware fault necessarily.20:58
OneM_IndustriesWell, what else?20:58
ikoniapower failure20:58
bekksOneM_Industries: Overheating, short circuit in the powerline, etc.20:59
OneM_IndustriesNo, the box and the lights are on the same breaker.20:59
creycyou could have high carbon monoxide in your house and you're forgetting you're pulling the power cord yourself20:59
bekksOneM_Industries: Which doesnt mean that you will notice a breakage < 20ms, which is enough to power off your computer.20:59
OneM_IndustriesAnd there is another box on the same power drop that didn't go off.20:59
bekksWhich might have better capacitors.20:59
Chicken_WrapThis may help, ovidiug: http://superuser.com/questions/744916/ubuntu-14-04-installer-doesnt-show-existing-partitions20:59
OneM_IndustriesTrust me, it really doesn't.21:00
bekksOneM_Industries: I guess you dont have logs proving that, do you? ;)21:01
OneM_IndustriesLogs proving what?? That the other box was up through this one going off?21:01
ovidiugChicken_Wrap: I ran that, and this is what I get: GPT signatures detected on the disk, but no 0xEE protective partition!21:01
ovidiugThe GPT signatures are probably left over from a previous partition table.21:01
bekksOneM_Industries: That it wasnt one of the reasons stated, which you declined.21:02
OneM_IndustriesOverheating: I ran a temp check right after reboot.21:02
Shiroeovidiug, meaby sth in win7 is wrong . Try fix boot sector in win7 1) run win7 installation from CD/USB . Run fix, open terminal and type "bootrec.exe /FixBoot " enter, and "bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd" enter.21:03
OneM_IndustriesWell, if it happens again I will look into it further.21:03
bekksOneM_Industries: How do you run a temp check - and how long was the computer running again before that temp check?21:03
OneM_Industriessensors, and about 2 minutes.21:04
bekksOneM_Industries: Two minutes are sufficient to cool down your computer again.21:04
OneM_IndustriesAlso, "last" in the command line produces this: http://pastebin.com/F37yvqY821:05

I must say that I clean installed Win7 less than 2 weeks, so I don't think it has anything to do with that. Also, when I first tried to install Ubuntu and I saw that it said I had all of my HDD's capacity as free space I clicked on the new partition button and maybe that's where the GPT left-overs come from.21:08

iAmerikanJordan_U: he said format the drive then make a partition21:16
Chicken_WrapThen my bad. But wouldn't that format it completely?21:16
amazingalex224i just wanna completly wipe them, i have 2 500gb of toshiba hard drives, and my usb type B cable that i ordered just came in, it reads the data, so ik the hard drives work21:17

amazingalex224both external21:18
amazingalex224and as of right now i dont plan on splitting them21:18
Jordan_UiAmerikan: "format" is an ambiguous term, and even if they thought that they wanted to create a filesystem on the drive as a whole without any partition table, they were wrong. That's almost never a good idea.21:18

JohKbut apt still can’t resolv the dependencies (I don’t have aptitude and can’t install it)21:21
amazingalex224and it says that21:21
bekksJohK: like trusty, raring, etc.?21:22
bekksJohK: Safe way to break things entirely.21:22
Jordan_UiAmerikan: Having a filesystem without a partition table makes it more likely that (poorly written) software will overwrite data on the drive and corrupt things, leaves you with a less flexible configuration (you can't easily create another partition even if you want to later on), confuses *people* who expect to be mounting partitions, and gains you approximately nothing.21:22
JohKbekks: also pinned trusty21:22

jonny5000o enact "right click" enacts left.  They are reversed.  How do I get it back to normal.  Scrolling works fine, as does mechanical actual click (not tap)21:25

MiningMarshjonny5000: maybe try disabling and then enabling it in X? type `xinput` into a terminal, look for the line that is the Yoga touchpad, and see what the id number is. then type `xinput disable <id>` and then `xinput enable <id>`21:28
Jordan_Uovidiug: I'm a little confused by that error message because you don't (and shouldn't) have any 0xEE partition at all.21:28
bekksJohK: Depends on what it finds in your sources.list21:28
bekksJohK: Which is quite messed up.21:28

amazingalex224and it has a red exclamation mark21:29
JohKbekks: it properly upgraded from saucy to trusty21:29
JohKbekks: and then tried to jump straight to xenial, only after that happened I manually edited the source.list21:29
ovidiugJordan_U: Now when I try to run fixparts again it just says that warning message and it doesn't prompt me to delete the GPT left overs. What is the 0xEE partiton and why shouldn't I have it?21:29
bekksJohK: And you added all distros, and messed up that file doing so.21:29
JohKbekks: nothing has happened in between as apt-get was/is stuck in the unresolveable dependency state21:31
JohKbekks: and I roled back to either trusty / xenial sources.list, still stuck in the unresolveable dependency state21:31
Jordan_Uovidiug: A 0xEE partition is a "protective" partition for GPT. Essentially, all disks with a GPT partition table are supposed to *also* have an msdos partition table with a single partition spanning the entire drive, so that partitioning software that doesn't understand GPT doesn't just think the drive is blank and they can write anywhere they want. You don't have GPT, and thus shouldn't have a protective21:32
nicomachusJohK: you shouldn't have xenial sources...21:32
Jordan_U partition. You should be fine, GParted should now see your partitions correctly.21:32
JohKI know21:32
JohKand I didn’t want to21:32
Jordan_Uovidiug: And Ubuntu's installer should also see your partitions and thus your Windows installation now.21:32
JohKI wondered why apt-get threw so many errors and discovered it then21:32
nicomachusJohK: paste your sources.list at paste.ubuntu.com and link it here21:33
bekksJohK: Because you installed packages from other distros already.21:33
JohKbekks: yeah because I didn’t know that xenial was introduced into my sources21:33
ovidiugJordan_U: I see...that's pretty weird. Well, earlier it said that I had those left overs and maybe with the 0xEE partition was linked with them and those couldn't be deleted. Should I try to install it again to check if it works properly or what more can I do before that?21:34

This only happens for existing users on this computer. It works as expected for a new user. Any idea how to fix this?21:34
JohKnicomachus: I can but it is either a sources.list with trusty sources or xenial sources.list created from do-release-upgrade21:34
Jordan_Uovidiug: That error message is spurious, I'm seeing it on a drive here as well that I know is fine. Try installing again and you will not longer have the problem of Windows and your existing partitions not being detected.21:35

daftykinswere you running it with -d?21:41
JohKdaftykins: I did not catch that it showed xenial as the next release and proceeded with the process21:41
JohKdaftykins: possible21:41
daftykinsno once you got to 14.04 you likely had it locked to LTS upgrades only so it ignored both 15.xx versions21:41
JohKoh ok21:42
daftykinsso how far did it get and what are you hoping to achieve now?21:42
JohKI’d like to get back to a usable apt-get21:42
daftykinsi've no idea where to go from there, it might be too far gone21:43
JohKaptitude usually helps a lot with solving dependencies when they are available21:43
JohKbut I don’t have it on this box, and I can’t install it21:43
daftykinsyou certainly can't downgrade, so most likely you'll need to clean install, preserving your /home21:43
daftykinsor if it's not on a separate partition, backup21:43

luckyy_How can I remount a flash drive so that it is read writable so I can write an iso to it?21:46
luckyy_Using ubuntu 14.0421:46
Jordan_Uluckyy_: What is your end goal? Are you planning to boot from this iso?21:47
daftykinsluckyy_: cheap ones tend to die write only, so it might be dead - but you don't mount a drive you're writing an ISO to, just put it directly on /dev/sdX with cp or dd21:47
luckyy_I am planning to take my iso and write it to the flash drive and boot from that flash drive21:48
MyStuffllldino: nvidia-xconfig it's ok but after I don't know how to configure my second monitor to use. I can't to move any windows on second monitor21:48
daftykinsluckyy_: so you're saying that fails right now?21:48
llldinoMyStuff: If you poke around nvidia-settings you should be able to set up your monitors how you like them21:49
daftykinsyou'd need to run nvidia-settings with "gksu" in order to have the permissions to write changes to xorg.conf so they're set permanently21:50
daftykinsotherwise, you would have to run nvidia-settings at every login to set the choices21:51
Jordan_Uluckyy_: Then you're misunderstanding more than one concept. I recommend using Ubuntu's "Startup Disk Creator". It's fairly easy to use, and doesn't risk you losing the data that's currently on your flash drive.21:51

segap_in the first block of code Environment is passed through fine, in the second one the echo will be blank22:31
segap_but if i try without the ' ' on EOSSH then , it's weird like the if statments or loops don't function correctly ... can't explain it22:32
psusisegap_, I think you have that backwards... in the first, you set $Environment locally, then ssh to the other machine, which knows nothing about it... in the second, you ssh to the remote first, and then set $Environment there22:32
zerooneoneJordan_U: also now apt is looking for the file: update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-29-generic .. cp: cannot stat '/lib/libcidn-2.19b.0.so': No such file or directory22:32

geniizerooneone: Seems to be a file provided by libc6-i38622:35

SiGeHey guys, is there anyway to find how many disks are attached to my ubuntu instance?  I have used fdisk -l and ls /dev/xvd* to see the list of disks in an AWS EC2 instance, but it seems like I can't see all the disks for some reason.22:39
bekksSiGe: sudo blkid22:40
bekksSiGe: How do you know you cant see all disks?22:40
Jordan_Usegap_: You haven't answered my question about the "problem with flow control". What you're describing with environment variables is exactly how here documents in bash work, if the sentinel is quoted then no variable expansion is performed. Neither version of a here document has any concept of flow control, so that is all handled in the remote shell.22:40
SiGe@bekks I don't, i2.8xlarge s are supposed to come with 8x800GB disks, but I can only see two 800GB disks with fdisk -l and ls /dev/xvd*22:40
SiGebekks: I also tried looking into dmesg to no-avail (only two disks were attached)22:41
psusisegap_, don't put the quotes around EOSSH and instead escape the $Environment with a leading \22:41
bekksSiGe: So pastebin sudo blkid22:41
segap_Jordan_U,  yeah sorry I don't even know how to explain it myself. It appears as though if i try it without the 'EOSSH' and use just EOSSH that there's almost a race condition and literally every command attempts to run at once without waiting on the previous ones22:41
psusisegap_, that's kind of neat though... I didn't know you could quote the HERE word... but it seems to make it treat the entire HERE document as if it were quoted and so the local shell does not do any substitutions22:42
Jordan_Usegap_: Stop trying to explain it and simply pastebin example output so that I can see what is happening myself.22:42
SiGebekks: one sec, booting up the instance -- doesn't blkid read off of /proc/disk*?22:42
segap_Jordan_U, good idea :)22:43
zerooneoneso can I use /etc/alternatives to point to the right file?22:43
SiGebekks: a single line, since the rest of the disks are not mounted or partitioned: /dev/xvda1: LABEL="*" UUID="*" TYPE="ext4"22:43
bekksSiGe: Pastebin the entire output.22:44
SiGehttp://pastie.org/private/ulfdxxeptypaopoguuieuw @bekks22:44
bekksSiGe: So you have just one disk.22:45
psusiSiGe, what makes you think there are any more disks?22:45
SiGepsusi: just the spec of the instance from Amazon.22:45
psusiSiGe, which says what?22:46
SiGe@bekks, I have 3 disks ... http://pastie.org/private/tzl6cdh91tn2ypq0ruo20w22:46
psusiSiGe, it would be unusual to give a virtual machine more than one disk22:46
SiGe@psusi that the instance (i2.4xlarge) comes with 4 dedicated SSD disks each of which have 800 GB22:46
Jordan_Usegap_: Also, you should never parse the output of ls, it's for humans only: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashPitfalls#for_i_in_.24.28ls_.2A.mp3.2922:47
psusiSiGe, ohh... odd... normally the host would raid them or something and present it as a single virtual drive, but ok... it looks like you don't have the other disks partitioned/formatted22:47

spartan2276psusi, do you know if there is a guide online anywhere I could follow. The only thing I have found is using the LVM and that is not currently setup with LVM22:52
psusispartan2276, I don't... but it is as simple as I said:  boot a live cd, mount / and /home, move files from /home to /, remove the /home entry from /etc/fstab so it doesn't try to mount it, reboot and it should work...22:52
psusispartan2276, if you want to not waste the space previously allocated to /home, use gparted on the livecd to blow away that partition then resize/move the root to use the space22:53
spartan2276psusi, there are no files in /home not for any users that is22:53
Jordan_Usegap_: Did you see my message about not using "ls" in scripts? if [ "$(ls -A /var/www/htdocs/sales/JenkinsBackup)" ]; then is much more appropriately and clearly written if [ -d /var/www/htdocs/sales/JenkinsBackup/ ]; then and you should use globbing and a for loop, like: for file in /var/www/htdocs/sales/JenkinsBackup/*; do ...22:53
psusispartan2276, ummm... yes... each user on the system has a directory in /home... otherwise what would you be asking to move?22:54
segap_Jordan_U,  yep i usually the find command with xargs but was lazy . Never thought of using a for loop though22:54
spartan2276psusi, no is fresh install but they want to just have / and not /home22:55

zippo^do you use back-up of this computer?23:37
zippo^example docs, photos, videos, etc. ?23:38
jonny5000TJ-, thanks!  that enabled me to find a quick solution to a problem that was bedeviling me.23:38
jonny5000MiningMarsh, I know you are not here anymore but for posterity I am saying "thank you" the disable and enable in X suggestion did the trick.  Much appreciated, wherever you are.23:39
zacwallsTJ-, aplay -l: http://pastebin.com/dkvGmje1 aplay -L: http://pastebin.com/fHfbZBfu23:39
TJ-jonny5000: you could do "/msg memoserv send help" and send that user a memo23:40
lordshangowhats up everyone?23:40
jonny5000TJ-,  how?23:41
TJ-zacwalls: are you trying to use the built-in audio speakers, or over HDMI ?23:41
jonny5000TJ-, what is the syntax for that?23:41
zacwallsTJ-, Built-in23:42
TJ-jonny5000: send that command; memoserv will return some help on how to use its 'send' feature23:42
zacwallsI havent rebooted yet23:42
TJ-zacwalls: try this: "speaker-test -Dfront -l 2 -c 2 -t wav "23:42
zacwallsTJ-, it works :)23:42
TJ-zacwalls: I thought it might. So, ALSA side is fine, I'd guess in Pulseaudio control panel /mixer in the GUI you need to ensure you'd selected the correct 'Profile'23:43
zacwallsTJ-, how do I access the GUI controls?23:44
TJ-zacwalls: depends on which desktop environment you're using, but the mixer properties are usually an advanced option in the DEs volume control applet23:44
zacwallsTJ-, Gnome23:45
TJ-zacwalls: it might be easier from the terminal. do "pactl list  cards | grep -A 10 Profiles " and identify the preferred profile name; e.g. for stereo output + mic input there might be "output:analog-stereo+input"23:48
zacwallsTJ-, pavucontrol seemed to work23:49
zacwallsTJ-, still doesnt work23:49
jonny5000MiningMarsh, hey, thanks for the help before.   The disable and enable in X suggestion did the trick.  Much appreciated, wherever you are.  I also went in and learned about X and setting properties for the Syanptics device and found one that makes it a lot less sensitive and jumpy.  this ubuntu machine is running close to perfect now.  and let me tell you, its a grat little laptop now!23:51
speaseDoes anyone know if it's been confirmed that python3 will be the default in Ubuntu 16.04?23:51
TJ-zacwalls: Amongst the profiles I see is "output:analog-stereo+input:analog-stereo: Analogue Stereo Duplex (sinks: 1, sources: 1, priority: 6060, available: yes)" ... I can then do "pactl set-card-profile 0 output:analog-stereo+input:analog-stereo" to set it23:52
zacwallsTJ-, OK :)23:52
TJ-zacwalls: the "0" is the sound card's index number23:52
zacwallsI know23:52
KatronixAnyone know of a GTK based app for working with mysql databases housed remotely?23:53
dabocksterKatronix: Not GTK, but there is SquirrelSQL. Looks terrible (Java Swing UX), but it works.23:54
zacwallsTJ-, which should I set?23:54
TJ-zacwalls: a profile that matches what is connected. No point selected a surround profile if you're on 2 stereo laptop speakers23:55
TJ-zacwalls: likewise for iec958 profiles23:55
zacwallsTJ-, can I just use alsa? It seems to works23:56
anabainwhen sharing files via nfsv3 and using automount at the client, what can be done to avoid client hanging when the server is shut down? Is there any chance for the server to tell the client to unmount the share before it gets shut down, which would avoid the hanging? Is there any workaround for this, like using some script before shutting down that tells the client to unmount?23:56
Katronixdabockster, will it work with OpenJDK? or would I need a version from Oracle?23:57
