endev15Bashing-om, I will note, that this error was only noticed after installing Windows and reinstalling GRUB this morning. I really don't get it though seeing as my HDD is no more that a year and a half old...02:02
endev15Bashing-om, I mention Windows because I just read that there is a "Reallocated Sector Count" which are sectors used by another area of the drive but marked as unusable. I would wonder if this could trigger the error.02:04

Bashing-om!virus | sruli02:10
ubottusruli: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux, except where files are then passed to Windows computers (perhaps using Samba). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus02:10
sruliBashing-om: in that video he shows a malware effecting his linux system02:10
sruliBashing-om: it was wierd as the malware files were exe files, i was thinking maybe the application did not run as it was not expecting these files in its dir, can you check that vid from 4.30 minute and give ur opinion?02:11
endev15sruli, It is probably fake. EXE files don't run in Ubuntu anyway unless you have installed Wine. And at that, Wine works terrible (for me anyway).02:12
jakethepythonhello room02:12
jakethepythoni am having trouble trying to make a samba server work02:12
sruliendev15: he shows wine is not installed in his system02:13
srulii need an opinion based on the evidence in that video02:13
srulialso in his vid he talks about UUID vs /dev that with UUId in fstab u cannot take hdd from one pc to another, in ubuntu has this changed from 14.04 to 15.10? i clone hdds the whole time for other PCs, i just spent 2 weeks setting up a 15.10 i need to know if i will be able to clone for other PCs or i wasted my time02:14
endev15sruli, Then it is fake. It is impossible to run EXE files in Linux without some sort of compatibility layer such as Wine. And there aren't many Linux compatibility layers other than full out emulators.02:14
sruliendev15: do u mind taking a look at that vid from 4.30 minute and give ur opinion? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_lhqg_p21k&list=WL&index=3602:14
Jordan_Usruli: C# executables are also often .exe files and can run in GNU/Linux. I can also make a bash script that if you ran woudl upload all your files to my server. This is a problem of Trojans rather than Viruses, and is solved by only running programs from trusted sources (the primary trusted source being the package manager / default repositories). Note, I have not watched the video and don't much care to02:15
endev15sruli, If you have enabled drive encryption in the Ubuntu setup, you cannot use your HDD in another computer without the key. If it is not enabled then you can. I may or may not be able to look at the video.02:15
Bashing-omsruli: I run an old ATI graphics card, in videos my card overheats and shuts the system down, so no I can not view the vid . Besides ..my opinion, pure bunk , At the least an ..exe us Windows, and that implies wine .. and that implies he should have had antivirus . . UUIDs ARE the way to go . With UUIDs one can transfer drives from other machines .02:16
sruliendev15: i use luks, as i said until now i never had a problem cloning hdd's and moving to other systems, i want to know if this changed in 15.1002:16
=== Punca2 is now known as Harbinger
endev15sruli, Jordan_U is correct. It is trojans not viruses. The way to protect yourself is not install ANYTHING from untrusted sources. And as Jordan_U says, even though I am terrible with Bash scripting even I could write a script that if you CHOSE to run it, it would upload all your files to my server. It is more of a matter of choice on Linux than a matter of infecting viruses.02:17
endev15sruli, I would watch the video but I am currently on limited cell service and possibly have a failing computer. I will bookmark it though and watch it tomorrow morning around 6:30 AM Pacific Time,02:18
Jordan_Usruli: You should carefully avoid ever having two volumes, be they filesystems or LUKS volumes, with identical UUIDs connected to the same machine at the same time. UUID stands for Universally Unique Identifier and any time you have UUIDs that aren't Unique you're risking trouble. A common solution to this is to either A: Not do byte level copies of volumes (instead using tar/rsync/cp) or B: Change the UU02:19
Jordan_UID of the cloned volume immediately after cloning.02:19
sruliJordan_U: not sure i understand, can u please explain?02:20
=== TheMann00 is now known as herpyderp23
srulii only use trusted sources, i know ppa is not supported here, but for 1 machine i am setting up for a new linux user he wants win 10 theme, i found the them at this repository ppa:noobslab/themes i have seen this repository around alot, would u advise not to use as untrusted source?02:21
=== dreadkop_ is now known as dreadkopp_
endev15sruli, I did see the title of the video and who it was by, and after seeing other videos by him I am not sure he is trustworthy. It is the truth that there can be "viruses" on any system, except on Linux it is the case of someone making a virus script, either lying to make you download and run it, or managing to hack your computer which is unlikely.02:22
=== dreadkopp_ is now known as dreadkopp
squintysruli,  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_malware   might be of interest02:22
endev15sruli, I believe noobslab/themes is a OK repository, but always be careful and be ready to pull the power cord of your computer if all else fails.02:22
endev15squinty, sruli, The truth is, unless you allow it, it can be almost impossible to get viruses anywhere.02:23
sruliJordan_U: i didnt notice the first part of ur message about UUID, i understand now, so never used 2 exact cloned drives on 1 system is what u r saying? thats logical would never do that02:23
sruliendev15: i agree, there is no logical way for it to run unless explicitly allowing, this vid made me confused, though, i believe the problem he was having was caused by the app refusing to run with unidentified files in its dir, but i need someone to have a look and tell me if that is the case02:26
endev15sruli, I think that he is faking it trying to put on a show, scare people, and have what he seems to think is fun.02:26

dumbo_000hello, i'm partitioning my HD, got some questions about it.05:19
dumbo_000i.e. is it a wise idea to create a first small partition for bootloader, before all other partitions? (in case of multiboot with other OS)05:20
DaMastahJordan_U: I'm on Ubuntu server 15.10 and I'm trying to get my rtorrent.service unit to run after a mount is made by the iscsi intiator05:22
Jordan_Udumbo_000: That depends. The primary reason to have such a separate /boot/ partition is to work around buggy BIOSs that can't handle large drives properly. Another reason is to make it simpler to delete OS partitions without breaking the ability to boot entirely, but for that purpose I would recommend a separate partition just for grub, with /boot/ still being a part of your root filesystem.05:23
dumbo_000is it a good idea to create an extended partition for root,main folder and swap? or i should leave swap in another partition? (I got 4GB ram is it a good idea to make a 8GB swap partition?) can I make all the extended partition with ext4 filesystem,even the swap? or it is better to make an ext4 filesystem for all of the sub-partition of the extended one?05:26

Jordan_Udumbo_000: I'm confused about your end goal now. Are you planning to dual boot with Windows? If so, and if you can't figure out how to install Windows for UEFI, then it's best to install Ubuntu for BIOS as well. Mixing BIOS and UEFI based OSs makes dual booting difficult.06:14

Jordan_Udumbo_000: Assuming that your boot firmware handles large drives properly, which it probably does, and assuming you still want to get this done quickly for now but eventually want a configuration that's convenient for adding and removing many OSs, I would recommend the following: Create an ext4 partition that will be used as a dedicated grub partition but just leave it empty for now. Install Ubuntu all on07:03
Jordan_U a single partition (with maybe a swap partition also, same size as RAM, or you could use a swap file same size as RAM). Then you'll be ready to go, and I can help you setup the dedicated grub partition, essentially like this: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#Multi_002dboot-manual-config but with more dynamic scripting when you have more time.07:03

dumbo_000Jordan_U well when I have more time..but i dunno if you'll talk with dumbo_000 again, this is not my computer someone borrowed me this computer to do other things on my main computer...07:34
dumbo_000Jordan_U: well if i need to do something like that i know i'll find you here so not difficult to keep in touch ;)07:35
BlackDalekI am trying to back up my home folder (115Gb) to my backup drive (empty formatted 120Gb), but Deja Dup keeps telling me my backup drive ran out of space.07:36

dumbo_000100MB it's exactly the size i was thinking about...thank you for your precious help :)07:37
Jordan_Udumbo_000: If you want to put some bootable isos on there as well, then you'll want room for that, but you can also keep bootable isos on any other partition or resize the grub partition when you delete one of the OSs.07:37

boss_anyone ?07:44
dumbo_000Jordan_U sorry if i bother again: what if i make a different partition for swap and make it double the size of my ram (i have still a free ram slot) or i can do 2 swap in an extended partition and then configure it to use on any linux distro?07:45
hateballboss_: The answer is Yes07:45
hateballboss_: Now, how about you ask your real question?07:45
BlackDalekI am trying to back up my home folder (115Gb) to my backup drive (empty formatted 120Gb), but Deja Dup keeps telling me my backup drive ran out of space. Can anyone tell me why it keeps saying this?07:45

boss_I want to customize CLI on my server.... like font size and color07:46
=== Kirk_R2D2 is now known as userone9
BlackDalekhateball, I think so... I can go check the system drive. But why? Should it make any difference if for example host drive is FAT and external backup drive is EXT4?07:48
dumbo_000Jordan_U: i have 4Gb ram but can extend to 8Gb...can i make a 8gb extended partition with 2 4Gb swap sub-partitions,will it work good outside the main extended linux partition (usr and root) ?07:48
hateballBlackDalek: if the blocksize differs and you're copying files of varying size, yes07:49
dumbo_000Jordan_U: making a 8gb swap partition if i currently have 4gb ram will be pointless?07:49
hateballBlackDalek: lets say you have a file that is 6kb and your blocksize is 4kb, then that file will use 8kb of space. See where I am going with this?07:50
hateballBlackDalek: you'll also need to make sure that that external drives partition doesnt have space reserved for root. 5% is the default, and that would make it smaller than 115Gb07:51
BlackDalekhateball, ok... I see that could make file size calculations vary considerably for large amounts. Anyway, I just checked and both the host drive and backup drive are formatted identically, so I am guessing block size should be the same.07:52
BlackDaleknautilus claims the home folder is 115Gb. Backup drive has a partition of 120Gb, no root. Do I need more than 120Gb to backup 115Gb?07:54
dumbo_000Jordan_U: please read when you have time i need some quick help.07:56
Jordan_Udumbo_000: You will likely never need to use swap for normal use with 4 GiB of RAM. Where swap is mostly used today is when hibernating, in which case you need to be able to hold all non-discardable virtual memory in the swap device. That's basically the only reason to even has as much swap as RAM, for most users.07:56
BlackDalekIs there some limitation on Deja Dup where it won't back up unless drive is... say, 20% larger than the folder(s) you are tyring to backup?07:56
dumbo_000Jordan_U so for a laptop that is supposed to be for a normal use i'd never need swap? i'm making it just for performance but maybe i am wrong07:58

dumbo_000Jordan_U i assume and accept that you are more experienced than me with those kind of things..please look again at : http://www.tldp.org/LDP/sag/html/partitions.html under partition type..what type would you chose for that partition?08:06

=== userone9 is now known as s0d0
dumbo_000Jordan_U:it's true that i can do mkfs.ext4 to dev/sda(n) but i suppose it makes some difference in setup if i make it primary or extended...will it work the same way with every OS ? maybe i dunno how it exactly work and what i am talking about, but i need to make that partition tab to go on with installation cause i can't use a computer other way,cause this is not my computer and must give back to its owner.08:12

dumbo_000cspack i'm a noob!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!09:30
cfhowlettAlexPortable, as I said "assuming an Intel chipset".  I don't know what you have there.09:31
dumbo_000yeah maybe i mean /home...i followed a tutorial on how to install archlinux and followed it...09:31

cfhowlettAlexPortable, sudo dmidecode | grep Intel        will return your chipset09:31
AlexPortableokay thanks09:31
dumbo_000or maybe the mistake is mine...09:32

cspackdumbo_000: i'm suggesting just put everything under / except /boot and swap of course, but it's up to you.09:37
dumbo_000so i can make root (/) and /home09:37

linux1459cfhowlett: I meant it is surely deleted without my permission.10:20
andybrine50% cpu usage as well10:20
linux1459cfhowlett: People other than me use the computer. When i tried to log in to Windows today, it said "No Such Partition". In Ubuntu Disk Utility shows that its "Free Space"10:22
cfhowlettlinux1459, the only person who can do that from a logged in ubuntu would be the system admin ...10:22

hateballandybrine: youtube is mostly html5, and you can allow flash per domain if you like. or just click to run10:31
Elw3andybrine and this is really the browser? Does top says so? I had it that X was going 90% when a browser was open.10:32

andybrinelol, thats ok Elw3. Im going to leave it there. just a shame. Lots of people are having cpu issues with firefox it seems, not just me. And I thought this place would provide some great answer (which it has) though still eats up the cpu11:35

MACscr"The release initially included https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_kernel 3.13, but this was updated to 3.19 with the point release of 14.04.3 on 6 August 2015"13:36
jason_C_minus, I believe I did it in a virtual terminal13:36
MACscrah, just found that13:36
C_minusjason_ and did you opt to install the "Nvidia Display Driver"? I already have an Nvidia driver I think - I installed it from "Additional Drivers"13:37
jason_C_minus, yeah that's what's nice about it. I think certain versions of cuda only play nice with certain drivers.13:37
C_minusjason_ you did install the bundled driver or you didnt?13:38
jason_C_minus, I did13:38
jason_C_minus, though messing with drivers always seems to be a bit of a gamble on Ubuntu.13:39
C_minusjason_ i see. i tried the runfile installer once before without installing the optional driver. it ended up not working if i recall.13:39
=== Barth_ is now known as swat_m
C_minusjason_ i'm tempted to do a complete backup before i do this cuda toolkit / driver install. last time i had problems afterwards hanging onthe ubuntu splash screen on boot.13:40
C_minusjason_ had to install ubuntu fresh (and win7 which is a total pain, takes hours)13:40
jason_C_minus, yeah I've had the same problem in the past. I very nearly reinstalled, but managed to fix things from a chroot jail on a bootable flash drive.13:42

Kim^JOk I'm going insane here. Where can I find the execution order of directives in Cloud-init? I have a runcmd (Last in the file) that needs access to a file I write with write_files, but it says it doesn't exists. The write_files directive is the first thing in the cloud-config file and the runcmd directive is the last thing.13:57

srulihow do i make a desktop launcher for a script gnome 15.1014:00
Desusruli: just write a .desktop14:02
sruliDesu: and in it "Exec= sudo /path/to/script" ?14:02
sruliDesu: tried that, nothing happens on double click14:02
Desuand put it in .local/share/applications14:02
Desusruli: uhm, what does this script does?14:03
Desuif you think you need sudo then you are generally doing it wrong14:03
=== Anonymous36 is now known as rob84
sruliit executes  many things, it requires sudo but i added it to visudo14:03
Desuwhat "many things"14:03
Desuand why does it need root?14:04
Desuand does it really need root for *all* it does?14:04
sruliDesu: it needs sudo there are a few things in it that dont and for those i use "sudo -u user"14:04

=== newbie is now known as Guest96546
Desusruli: you should do it the oposite way around14:05
Desuhave the script call sudo for the things it needs to do as root14:05
Desuand not for the rest14:06
akikDesu: sudo is not used only for getting root permissions14:06
Desuakik: he is using it for that though14:06
Desuakik: and then reverting it using sudo -u inside the script14:06
akikDesu: he said "i use "sudo -u user""14:06
Desuwhich is just silly14:06
sruliDesu: and how will that work? call the script without sudo, and it fail due to permission issues?14:07
C_minusis the 105MB partition I see in "disks", labelled HPFS/NTFS (Bootable), the partition that GRUB2 lives on?14:08
Pinkamena_Ddownloaded compiz and try to enable the desktop plugin 'put'. The box just unchecks about 2 seconds later by itself. What can I do?14:08
Desusruli: you have the script itself call sudo when needed instead of doing sudo thescript14:09
akiksruli: i've read that you should use gksudo or kdesudo to open graphical programs14:09
sruliDesu: 1. once a script runs when it hits a sudo if fails and exits. 2. i dont want to enter the pass each time so i added it to visudo, meaning i have to call it with sudo14:10

akiksruli: the NOPASSWD: clause in /etc/sudoers enables running commands without entering the password14:17

akiksruli: try running the script in a terminal with full paths to the commands. then when it works copy the exact same command into your desktop file14:19
tewardakik: sruli: However, unless you know what you're doing, you'll have some headaches with 'sudo' - it's usually not the best idea to permit things to be run as sudo without passwords being entered (security concerns)14:19
orangepeelthis is on  production server.  Will this get fixed eventually?14:20
tewardorangepeel: not unless you provide specifics - run `sudo apt-get update` and then `sudo apt-get upgrade` again14:20
cfhowlettorangepeel, up to google.  it's their repo, not ubuntu14:21
tewardorangepeel: it's possible a different version is available on that repository, or the repository is dead (you'll see 404s in the `update` logs), and if it's not fixed, then Google is at fault14:21

herrkinhello community, I have a problem. I am ussing a vpn pptp to connect to a customers network and give them suport of our application but the bad thing is that pptp forces my internet to go through that network and they have blocked internet via pptp so I need a way to avoid using pptp gateway to go to internet. so that I can be connected to their network and still use my internet. how can I do that?15:09
Elw3I was missing that package and my bash had neither of this features.15:09
jnoob22ugh. darn it, it's trying to do too much ;-)15:09
akikjnoob22: i think what you want is command-not-found and command-not-found-data15:09
jnoob22akik, yeah i still want it to auto-complete things like files and directories in the path or in the $PATH15:09
Gravjnoob22 guess its impossible to switch default file manager then15:09
akikjnoob22: that is handled by bash itself15:10
harenderhi, i have some *.txt files in /var/www/html/ dir, i'm unable to see these files in apache which is running on port 808115:10
jnoob22Grav nothing's impossible with *nix ... you just have to find a way and be a little more persistence15:10
jnoob22akik, ok, so probably a bash setting somewhere.15:10
akikjnoob22: no i mean the functionality you're asking for comes from command-not-found package15:11
jnoob22akik, was wondering if it involved an ubuntu package since I've not seen that before on any other distro.15:11
Elw3My file manager wont open at all atm... Be lucky to have one.15:11
jnoob22akik, ok, will investigate further.15:11

Elw3Grav you could of course just delete the other file managers and make a link to the one you need.15:12
fathomI have tried assorted variants of the Ubuntu OS, such as Xubuntu, Kubuntu, and plain old vanilla 'buntu and it is the same issue15:12
jnoob22fathom, probably something tied to your gui session15:12
jnoob22hmm that sounds pretty bad.15:12
fathomjnoob22, emacs...but should it matter?15:12
Elw3So "nautilus" is a link to thunar or something like that.15:12
GravElw3 i feel everything will just stop working if i brute force it, already half of it is broken15:12
jnoob22fathom, you asked, mate. If you said, gedit, then I would have thought well maybe there's something not quite right with your desktop session.15:13
Elw3It cant break more than that then.15:13
fathomI used filezilla, emacs, and firefox with clementine running in the background15:13
fathomThese things should not boot you off your session15:13

fathomPerhaps I need to pay for ubuntu support to get it working15:19
Elw3Well you could start by answering questions.15:20
fathomNormally I would switch distros, but there is some software particular to Ubuntu15:20
Elw3Booting out is not a valid describtion.15:20
fathomElw3, I agree, booting out mid work sucks15:21
Elw3Are you actually reading?15:22
Elw3See i do not know what booting out means. It makes no sense, so would you just mind to describe what you problem is? Is it a loggout, a kernel panic, a freeze?15:23

EleanorEllisioria: I tried that but I don't think X restarted17:58
ioriaEleanorEllis,  did you do it in console or in a terminal window ?17:58
EleanorEllisioria: lsmod | grep  sisusbvga produces no response so I guess it wasn't permanent. I did it in console <ctrl> <alt> <f1>17:59
ioriaEleanorEllis,  yes,  and when you started lightdm, it didn't restart  ?17:59
EleanorEllisioria: That's right. It seemed to take ages without doing much which is why I rebooted. The console was still responsive when I did <ctrl> <c> though. Should I have just waited a bit longer after attempting to start lightdm?18:01

EriC^^well there's always a better way.. but you could just dd an img there and another image later so you have 2 backups on it21:26
anibuxI've broken everything!21:26
bpromptC_minus:   use something like Clonezilla, the issue with "dd", is that, is copies everything, including unused space, not just the data alone, Clonezilla only copies the data in the partitiion/hdd, besides the partition table and boot records21:27
EriC^^C_minus: like dd if=/dev/sda of="/media/hal9000/My Passport/backup1.img" bs=4M conv=sync,noerror,notrunc21:27
MonkeyDustanibux  start from the beginning, what brings you here, in one line, so you can easily repeat21:27
bpromptC_minus:   so, if you have a partition with 25gbs of data, that is 250gbs in size, "dd" will give you a 250gbs image file, even though 90% of it's blanks21:28
EriC^^C_minus: if you just want it for backing up then just use if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb reason being if the ntfs filesystem goes bad the whole image you had will be lost, that way it's multiple filesystems , you'll the lose space but whatever if it's just for backing up21:30

C_minuscelly another clonezilla casualty, join the club.21:48
celly@C_minus: am i better off asking this here or in the #ubuntu-server channel?21:48
delrocasDoes the "amd" in [Ubuntu-14.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso] mean it's for AMD processors? Is this iso also for 64-bit Intel processors? Is there only one iso of Ubuntu 14.04.3?21:48
C_minuscelly these guys are good :)21:49
celly@C_minus, ok.  then i'll pretty much just copy and paste my question here, lol21:49
cellywhen i run [drbl-all-service start], i get errors stating that multiple services failed to start (isc-dhcp-server, rpcbind, nis, ypserv, ypbind,yppasswdd,ypxfrd,statd,nfs-kernel-server,nfs-server, tftpd-hpa)21:49
cellywhen i try to pxe boot, i get to the screen where i can make the selection of starting clonezilla or installing centos6 net-install.  i am able to runt he centos6 net-install without any problems, but when i try to start clonezilla, i get an error stating "FATAL ERROR: Failed to mount root filesystem"21:49
cellythis is all being done in a virtual environment (using VMware ESXi 5.1).  the esxi host has 2 NIC cards.  the clonezilla virtual server is utilizing both network cards, one for "internet" access and the other for the drbl instance.  the virtual machine that i am using as the test drbl client is properly located on the same network as the NIC for the drbl instance.21:50

ikoniacelly: thats not really ubuntu's problem21:51
cellyif you suggest i bring this to the #ubuntu-server channel, then i will21:52
LoshkiJordan_U: C_minus: I agree, ddrescue is better than dd if there are errors.21:52
bpromptLoshki:    IIRC it happened because the first "consumer market' 64bit cpus, as opposed to enterprise, were put out by AMD, and thus the original naming used that prefix21:52
ikoniacelly: I'd sugget you not use any of the ubuntu channels for your clonezilla problems21:52
cellywell, the server is running on ubuntu, so i thought that just maybe, someone here might've experienced the same issue and would be willing to help21:52
gabe_h_cuoddelrocas:  I think that came about because of AMD's early entry into 64bit processors.  i think they were the first to market there a long time ago.21:52

C_minusSo I started off with 2 large partitions and 1 small. I presume the bootloader lives in the small one. Win7 goes in the first partition.
