ZythyrCan someone help me please. I get stuck at modprobe usbip command in this guide: https://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-set-up-a-usb-over-ip-server-and-client-with-ubuntu-10.0400:10
ikoniaZythyr: whats the issue ?00:11
ikonia(that whole guide looks bad)00:11
Zythyr modprobe: FATAL: Module usbip not found.00:11
ikoniawhere is the module coming from00:11
ikoniaok - so the module doesn't exist00:11
Zythyrwhen i do usbipd -D, I get error: usbipd: error: please load usbip-core.ko and usbip-host.ko!00:12
Zythyrsorry thats that wrong error00:12
ikoniaright, and then you try to modprobe it, I see that00:12
ZythyrI get error usbip_common_mod.ko and usbkip.ko must be loaded00:13
ikoniaok, so modprobe them00:13
ZythyrI can't00:13
Zythyrbecause it says usbip module doens't exisist00:13
ikoniawhy ?00:13
ikoniaZythyr: ok - so where do they come from ?00:13
ikoniaI'm not asking for a URL00:14
ikoniaI'm asking where do those modules come from00:14
ZythyrI installed them00:14
ikoniathe guide you are reading is for ubuntu 10.0400:14
Zythyrapt-get install usbip00:14
OerHeks"Since Linux-3.17 the package 'usbip' is obsolete and does not work. If used, usbip will not function. Solution: Finally remove the package usbip, it is absolutely missleading."00:14

easyOnMek1l: I got this reply from a support staff in Digital Ocean: The repos for Utopic have been deprecated and are no longer available. Another note, we highly recommend migrating to a new droplet instead of performing the distribution upgrade within the droplet. The reason for this is the newer images use self-managed kernels instead of the externally managed kernels. So if you have a 14.10 droplet upgraded to 15.x you will most likely see issues with kernel00:54
easyOnMek1l: my question is what is the difference with those self - managed kernels and externally managed kernels00:55

frustr8d_apu_bluIm not able to have working installation of gnome ubuntu 15.10 though everythings fine on the Live-mode. After reboot, the screen errors, staying gray until reset power, or simply doesnt load.

emitattuoBen64, whatever is handling my network connections is disregarding the information I put in the GUI, either because it's not properly being saved or it's being overwritten by something else.08:09

Ben64emitattuo: can't really tell, maybe you're editing the wrong connection?08:10
emitattuoBen64, I don't appear to be.08:10
Ben64when you click on the nm icon, does it show the connection you edited as being connected?08:11

Ben64well /etc/resolv.conf is supposed to be a symlink to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf08:27
Ben64something you did changed that, so i'm not sure what that was or what to suggest for you08:27

slappymcfryCoolGamrSms: do you have additional network interfaces on the machine?08:58
CoolGamrSmsjust eth0 and tun0 which is being created by openvpn08:59
CoolGamrSmsI think the problem is the ssh traffic is going through tun0 and I don't know how to change it :p08:59
slappymcfryCoolGamrSms: It's a bit out of my league, I think the term you're looking for is "split tunnelling".09:03
bramgnCoolGamrSms: all your traffic is being routed through the tunnel?09:05
bramgnCoolGamrSms: you could have a look at the output of 'ip r s' which will show you the routing table09:06

slappymcfryabolfazl1231: Keep in mind, this would not create a launcher for you. You still need a .desktop file created. These are placed system-wide in /usr/share/applications or per-user in ~/.local/share/applications09:23

slappymcfryCould someone give me some insight on how system services are managed for the ubuntu container images? The wily release has systemd as PID1 but dbus isn't included, so systemctl doesn't work.09:27

slappymcfrywardenclyffe: There is a utility called caffiene09:38
k1l_wardenclyffe: the player should do that automatically. i guess you are using flash?09:39
StatelessCaton a Xubuntu 15.04, i have unfortunatly done a 'apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop^'. How i can revert this and remove all installed packages and get back ?09:40
wardenclyffei am using flash, mostly (though sometimes other players)09:40
blablaStatelessCat: get the list of packages from /var/log/apt/history.log and unless them09:40
hateballStatelessCat: 15.04 is EOL, move to 15.10. As for removing.. ^09:40
wardenclyffeshouldn't that be a feature for everyone? who doesn't watch a video from time to time?09:41
wardenclyffealso, that extension is global - meaning if i stop watching something, the standby will not work, unless i actively disable the extension.09:42
k1l_wardenclyffe: as i said. a proper player does this, like totem, vlc, ..... but the flash webplayers cant do that09:42

StatelessCatblabla | StatelessCat: get the list of packages from /var/log/apt/history.log and unless them --> is it save to apt-get remove all of them ?09:44
k1l_wardenclyffe: and honestly: flash is a that big mess of a security issue you dont want that to have rights to do anything on your system.09:44
slappymcfrywardenclyffe: https://xkcd.com/619/ Honestly, just remove flash. It's not worth the trouble.09:45
Triffid_Hunterwardenclyffe: all the good video sites use html5 video these days, don't need flash for that09:45
wardenclyffek1l_: yea, but when i disable it I get some JWPlayer in several places - I don't know how to turn that off since it is not in the FF plugins.09:45
slappymcfrywardenclyffe: JWPlayer is an html5 player.09:46
Triffid_Hunterwardenclyffe: jwplayer is a html5 wrapper, not a plugin09:46
blablaStatelessCat: i guess so, does it mention only what it added or everything?09:46
k1l_wardenclyffe: so you can only temporarily disable the screen shutdown09:46
wardenclyffeTriffld_Hunter: so that means it is just regular HTML5 and is safe?09:46
slappymcfrywardenclyffe: much, much, much safer than flash.09:47
wardenclyffeunfortunately i need flash for some work/study videos.09:47
Triffid_Hunterwardenclyffe: it's as safe as your browser's sandbox, most of which are pretty watertight these days09:48
Triffid_Hunterwardenclyffe: you can often get the raw mp4 if you view source or inspect the DOM tree with firebug or similar09:48
Triffid_HunterI have a shell script that strips the url for raw video from sites like youtube, it's pretty handy09:48
wardenclyffeokay, so another question is this: when i cancelled flash i got the html5 option by default. but when i set flash to "ask me" then i don't get the html5 option at all.09:49
wardenclyfferaw mp4 would be best09:50
Triffid_Hunterwardenclyffe: sounds like a great time to have multiple browsers, one with flash plugin disabled that you use for regular browsing, and another with it enabled specifically for whatever sites you're using that haven't realised that flash is dead yet09:51
wardenclyffesound excellent, maybe i should give chrome a chance anyway, just for this :) also heard their flash is better or something..09:52

k1l_schang_: 14.10 is dead since july last year. so you are late for the regular upgrade. you would have needed an !EOL upgrade.13:48

I did a partition resize today on /dev/sda with gparted from live-dvd.. Is there anyway to save repair my hard disk?14:28
ikoniaMackDoms: so that makes no sense14:28
MackDomsikonia, how so?14:29
ikoniahow can your windows D:\ be the same disk as your linux root14:29
ikoniaunless you are missing partition information in the description14:29
MackDomssda1 is my ntfs14:29
dragonbiteso you used gparted to resize disk #1 which has Linux and D:?14:29
MackDomssda3 is my ubuntu system14:29
MackDomsyes sdb is my SSD disk14:29
MackDomssda is a 1TB hard disk14:30
BluesKajMackDoms, BIOS or UEFI ?14:30
ikoniaMackDoms: so what happens when you boot ?14:30
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI14:31
dragonbiteinteresting partition scheme... I guess14:31
MackDomsLast time I tried to boot ikonia it just gave purple screen (still from bootloader I guess)14:31
dragonbiteso disk #1 (sda) is not accessible anymore and the ony thing you chagned was resizing the disk14:31
ikoniaI don't think the purple screen is a boot loader14:31
MackDomsThe time before it said something about can't load /boot/efi14:31
xubuntu01wCan someone help me mount a NTFS from an old windows machine14:31
ikoniasounds like your disks partitions are all over the place14:32
dragonbitewhere is grub (sdb?)14:32
MackDomsIs there a tool to check and repair the hard disk?14:32
MackDomsI'd assume grub is on sdb since there is my ESP14:32
BluesKajMackDoms,  your grub isn't installed to the uefi partition most likely14:32

dragonbiteyou could try booting up to a live USB and see if you can access sda14:34
dragonbiteit could be gparted messed up your partition tables14:34
MackDomsIt sure looks like it14:34
dragonbiteand that is not good (not the end of the world, but not good for sleeping at night) ;)14:34
MackDomsSince "Minitool partition wizard" in windows still detects the 3 partitions on the hard disk14:34

MackDomsThere isn't a tool that can analyse and repair the partion table?14:37

dragonbitebest bet is going to be to get into the bad drive, copy the files off to a network drive or something so if the ":) hits the fan" the worst case is wipe and recreate the drive14:47
Nalaurienmy bad14:48
dragonbiteI wish I could remember what I did when I had this issue with Windows... darn memory (and I don't mean RAM)!!!14:48
barry_What initramfs really do?14:48
xubuntu01wcfhowlett I cannot do that as it is from a old machine that died and has been binned.14:48

Nalauriendo you only have two drives connected? the original and the secondary(windows one)?14:52
dragonbitexubuntu01w: what about disconnecting sdb and running a Windows repair disk to try and put everything "back in line"?  Then reconnect sdb and if the system doesn't boot to that disk use a LIVE sesson to re-configure grub?14:52
Nalaurien--# cat /media/14:52

kryptowhy we need too logs one in /var/log/upstart/service.log and /var/log/service.log17:36
cfhowlettdjango_, OK, you should have at least one "proprietary" driver.  that is probably the recommended choice17:36
kryptothose are not symlinks17:36

NikLPright I've got some NAS drives and they're set up with fstab partitions. But if they're off when I boot the pc, they're not visible. How do I "rerun" fstab to get these drives mounted?17:52
lotuspsychjedjango_: did you install nvidia-prime like i asked last time?17:53
MonkeyDustNikLP  by "off", you mean switched off, or unmounted?17:54
MonkeyDustNikLP  mount everything in fstab with   sudo mount -a17:54
NikLPthe NAS' were off, the pc was on. Having exhausted my searching, I finally just found "mount -a"17:55
NikLPyeah thanks MonkeyDust :)17:55
MonkeyDustNikLP  NAS users help each other17:55
NikLPMonkeyDust: it did give me a device busy error tho - because a device was "already mounted" perhaps?17:55
NikLPMonkeyDust: what do you have? (I have two crappy old units, one is failing (2TB :( ))17:55
django_lotuspsychje, idk what that is, ive been trying to work with the nvidia drivers17:56
django_my goal is just to turn it off i wanna program not game17:56
django_and it heats it for no reason17:56
lotuspsychjedjango_: if your card is optimus, you need to install nvidia-prime17:56
django_i have nvidia geforce17:56
lotuspsychjedjango_: only then you can turn it off...17:56
lotuspsychje!info nvidia-prime | django_17:57

django_lotuspsychje, do i need to uninstall the drivers?17:57
MonkeyDustNikLP  same here, ancient Netgear Readynas Duo17:57
lotuspsychjedjango_: no, you need an nvidia-number driver + nvidia-prime package then turn off performance mode in nvidia-settings17:58
NikLPMonkeyDust: ah well! still a great thing to have :)17:58
django_is there a guide for this?17:58
django_havent found anything in google17:58
lotuspsychjedjango_: i just explained you...17:58
django_how do i know if I have the nvidia-number driver installed?17:59

ash_workzwhat's a good channel to ask about the dig command?18:48
ash_workzany recommendations?18:48
MonkeyDustash_workz  ask here18:48
ash_workzwhat's with the @ sign?18:49
pbxash_workz, what are you trying to do and what have you read (e.g. manpage)18:49
ash_workzI kinda get that it means "search from here" but I don't quite understand the dynamics of what dig does to really get that18:49
MonkeyDustash_workz  what brings you here, in one line, so you can easily repeat18:49
ash_workzpbx: I've read some of the man, looked at an example on youtube; this person uses it in code that now I am dealing with18:50
=== isReKT2000 is now known as Guest88791
ash_workzthe purpose of the script which it is used in is to update geo data (inevitably; that may not be the goal here; though it looks pretty integral to the purpose)18:51
Piciash_workz: it specifies that you want to ask a specific dns server for their response18:52
ash_workzdig (apparently) fetches some data that is then parsed for a db update.18:52
sveinseHi. Just installed ubuntu 15.10 and I am running gnome shell. How can I disable that the screen does not go black (not blank) after some inactivity?18:52
ash_workz(php script) the format is `dig @ $var.ext TXT`18:53
ash_workzPici: so asking specifically itself?18:54
Piciash_workz: that is asking the server at what TXT records it has for $var.ext18:54
Piciash_workz: assuming you have a dns server running locally, yes.18:54
ash_workz"it has for $var.ext" -- meaning the record will be named that way?18:54
Piciash_workz: thats some php thing, I can't speak to what is in that variable.18:55
wk-workis there any way to configure an network network interface with kickstart with additional routes? just specifying the ip, netmask and gateway is not enough to get network access18:55
squintysveinse,  try System Settings -> Brightness and Lock18:55
Piciwk-work: you may want to ask in #ubuntu-server as well18:55
ash_workzPici: disregard the variable name, I am more interested in the meaning of the syntax and the placement of these words18:55
wk-workPici: thanks18:55
Piciash_workz: $var.ext is where I would expect the dns name of whatever you're querying about to be.18:56
funkenstrahlen_hey, anyone here with some knowledge about running ejabberd server?18:57
Piciash_workz: i.e. dig @ ubuntu.com AAAA  would ask the DNS server what AAAA records it has for ubuntu.com18:57
funkenstrahlen_I struggle setting up anonymous login18:57
ash_workzI see18:57
ash_workzwhen I dig google.com TXT, it gives google.com.3599INTXT"v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all" ... would the equivalent be like dig @google.com google.com TXT ?18:58
ash_workzseems to hang if I do that18:59
ash_workzthis is where my confusion comes in with the @ sign18:59
tewardash_workz: @ denotes the nameserver to query18:59
tewardash_workz: 'google.com' is not a direct nameserver, iirc18:59
Piciash_workz: google.com doesn't host a nameserver (over port 53)19:00
tewardash_workz: therefore, if you want to query the Google DNS servers, use @
ash_workzcan you glob with dig? dig @ns*.google.com google.com TXT ?19:01
ash_workzguess not19:02

william1978quick question and I hope I'm not in the wrong channel for it, if I am could someone tell me where I should ask this question.  Is there a GUI sudo file manager?19:06
rootriand yes i did try disabling N connectivity ha19:06
k1l_rootri: what ubuntu release is that?19:06
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)19:06
pavloswilliam1978, you could try sudo nautilus19:07
rootritried a 16.04 live cd and it didn't seem any better19:07
MonkeyDustpavlos  ubottu just said to not use sudo with graphical applicacations19:08
k1l_rootri: try "sudo apt install linux-generic-lts-wily"  that will bring you the 4.2 kernel from 15.10. check if that is better.19:08
pavloswilliam1978, better yet, try gksudo19:08

william1978_Hmm, had an idea.  What is the best partitioning tool for Xubuntu?19:56
pubuntwhat do you mean by mix?19:56

optimistic7how to pass exit code of child process to any other process (other than parent process) ?20:35
k1l_pubunt: that is not true. your several OS setup and your mix on nvidia drivers caused your issues. so blaming ubuntu for that doesnt make you look smarter20:35
pubuntit is true20:36

pubuntwhy would have multiple OS cause these issues?20:37
pubuntno, it doesn't ...20:37

emitattuopubunt, did Firefox do something on their end?  Or is the old version of Flash that's available for Linux just isn't compatible with those sites?20:43

pubuntbtw, there's a lot of negative reviews in the software center20:45

daftykinsnope i only just joined so i have no idea what you're talking about - sorry :)21:09

papodaca_OerHeks, `virsh capabilities` does not report any os types as supported @_@21:10
pavlosmaum, if exbundle is not a text file, there must be some pgm to modify contents.21:10
maumpavlos: pgm?21:11

dersquishernimbiotics, I'm not really keeping track, sorry. If you can run the command 'systemctl', then I think so. And systemd supports those scripts, so that'd work22:19

C_minuswhat you told me to do, if i remember, was to overwrite an external drive with /dev/zero22:34
ikoniaC_minus: no doubt, but that doesn't change the fact that I walked you through it22:35
ikoniaC_minus: write zeros to the drive, or blank the partition table, which is what we did22:35
C_minuswe did that to an external hard drive (not the same one by dd backup is on.) the gpt/mbr problem is on my laptop's internal hard drive.22:35
ikoniaI'm not sure why that is a problem ?22:36
C_minusbecause it caused clonezilla to throw an error instead of making me a backup medium.22:36
ikoniaI can image my gpt based systems just fine22:36
ikoniaI'd suggest working it through with the clonezilla support guys if in doubt22:37
ikoniacarrying on as you are doing will lead to failure22:37
C_minustherefore i was forced to pursue other means (i.e. dd) to make a backup (since the procedure for fixing the gpt/mbr mismatch error contained multiple warnings about deleting data)22:37
ikoniaand to be honest - I'd question if you should be depending on an "image" as a regular backup option22:37
C_minusikonia isn't that the simplest way to restore a dual boot configuration? without messing around with lots of  different images for different partitions?22:37
ikoniamuch much not22:38
ikoniaand again - I'd question if you should be using "images" as a core option22:38
ikoniabut we covered this before22:38
C_minusduely noted22:38
daftykinsC_minus: don't take this the wrong way - but it's clear you've just grabbed a bunch of commands and throw them at your system without a full understanding, which has, is and will continue to cause issues22:40
C_minusi don't take offense to that at all. i'm here to learn.22:41
daftykinsright... and using tools like dd is tough because a single typo can hose everything in one go22:42
ouroumovAnyone know why a garbled splash screen resulting from a previous failed FDE install would survive a clean reinstall with root partition formated and how to fix it?22:43
Frank_Leachstrangest thing...i just powered up my chromebook, first time in a week, did an update and dist upgrade in terminal, rebooted to finish update...rebooted and my cursor from my mouse is gone! Can anyone help?22:43
C_minusright now, given that my laptop is in hard-drive-purgatory and all i have is a full drive backup made with dd, I need to get it restored. I'm more than willing to take advice about how I should do this and that, but right now none of that is very useful to me.22:43
daftykinsC_minus: i understand that, however it's at this moment - when you've broken it - that the warning needs to be repeated to highlight it22:44
daftykinsso what exactly is the problem? all you need do is repeat what you've done before to restore to the internal drive presumably.22:44
C_minusdaftykins i used dd to restore it. i can't remember the exact command someone here helped me formulate it.22:45
C_minuspiped through pv to produce eta, progress bar etc.22:45
daftykinsright but you said it got interrupted, so just do it again22:45
daftykinsi mean you had the disappearing internal disk thing before, but i asked for a "sudo parted -l" - not seen it yet.22:46
C_minusdaftykins, thats because your proposal of swapping usb ports seemed to work ;) !22:47
Frank_Leachcan anyone help me restore my mouse function?22:47
daftykinsC_minus: err i'm not sure how that applies to either thing i said22:47
C_minusthe drive was acknowledged. here it is if you're still interested: http://paste.ubuntu.com/15019865/22:48
daftykinsyeah so i see all 3, so where's the problem?22:49
daftykinsrun your restore with the appropriate source disk as if= and target as of= and let it run22:49
Frank_LeachAnyone free to help?22:53
daftykinssomeone will reply if they can, more detail on one line might help22:53
Frank_Leachrecent update/dust upgrade from terminal has diabled my touchpad/mouse22:53
EriC^^Frank_Leach: try an older kernel as a temp fix22:54
C_minusdaftykins, ikonia thanks for the help, I do genuinely appreciate it.22:54
daftykinsno problem, but do heed our warnings22:55
daftykinsi'll totally "i told you so" next time you wipe the wrong thing :)22:55
C_minusi look forward to it.22:55
Frank_Leacheric, i always do a full clean after a kernel update, i dont have the older kernel on my machine. It is a chromebook, not much space22:56
daftykinsoh chromebook - real install or chrubuntu or some such?22:56
Frank_Leachhow would I restore the previous kernel if I did a full clean?22:57
deniz946hello all, how i can unrar .rar files? i've tried with unrar but it don't let me22:57

daftykinsdeniz946: with unrar22:57
Frank_Leachuname -r22:57
xanguaA full clean? If you mean autoremove, it should keep at least two previous kernels Frank_Leach22:57
deniz946daftykins, i've tried22:57
Frank_Leachautoremove, yes..22:57
EriC^^Frank_Leach: in a terminal22:57

rwwdeniz946: did you install the `unrar` package from apt or something else? are you using Ubuntu or something else?23:01
k1l_pouet12345: what are you trying to do?23:01
deniz946rww i did sudo apt-get install unrar-free, im using ubuntu23:02
rwwtry enabling multiverse and installing unrar (not -free)23:02
rwwbut it confuses me that it's seeing /usr/local/bin/unrar and not /usr/bin/unrar23:03
rwwwhich leads me to suspect there is something other than APT package going on here23:03
pouet12345k1l_, first, can I do it or not ?23:03
daftykinsi'd be willing to bet there's something other than ubuntu going on there, too23:03
deniz946rww what is multiverse?23:03
k1l_pouet12345: no.23:03
pouet12345k1l_, ok23:04
Frank_Leachok Eric, i got a list of kernels I think from dpkg -l linux-image*23:04
pouet12345k1l_, I need to get the list of partitions names, the way that grub see them at boot23:04
Frank_Leachnot sure how to proceed23:04
EriC^^Frank_Leach: is there a kernel other than the one uname -r returned?23:04
Frank_Leachthere are 423:04
pouet12345k1l_, I can reboot and see them, but I would prefer not reboot yet23:05
EriC^^Frank_Leach: does it say "ii" at the beginning of the lines?23:05
k1l_pouet12345: like what names?23:05
pouet12345k1l_, like the device names23:05
EriC^^pouet12345: are you writing a custom grub entry?23:05
pouet12345/dev/mapper/something but with grub naming23:05
=== Deltanic_ is now known as Deltanic
Frank_Leachone previous one, yes23:06
EriC^^Frank_Leach: ok, restart the pc, hold shift when it boots to get grub, then go to advanced > choose the older kernel23:06
Frank_Leachno grub on chromecook...using the john lewis seabios thingy23:06
k1l_pouet12345: grub uses (hd0,0). do you mean this?23:07
Frank_Leachis there any way on terminal to do it?23:07
XantosJOIN boggle23:07
pouet12345k1l_, yes, but I want that for lvm partitions. wich is like (lvm/something)23:07
pouet12345I guess mkconfig can guess it, so there should be a way23:08
EriC^^Frank_Leach: maybe john lewis seabios boots grub?23:08
Frank_Leachnope, it doesn't sadly..23:09
Deltanichi, i have a small python script (running on a server, using putty) that expects some input before it continues after which it will run for a few hours. now, i kinda want to sleep, is there any way in ubuntu that lets me move that process to the background after the input, which lets me safely close the terminal?23:09
EriC^^Frank_Leach: ok, you can remove the new kernel, and you'd be left with the old one23:09
Frank_Leachsounds good.23:10
Bashing-ompouet12345: Maube : ' cat /proc/partitions ' ?23:10
pouet12345Bashing-om, it would be like that but from grub perspective23:10
pouet12345and not linux perspective23:11
Frank_LeachHow do i do that?23:11
EriC^^Frank_Leach: sudo apt-get remove linux-image-4.2.0-29-generic23:12
Frank_Leachcool...i will then reboot and see what happens, I will let you know23:13
EriC^^Deltanic: if you press ctrl+z, then type "bg" , then type "disown" you can close the terminal and it should keep running23:14
DeltanicEriC^^, i see, thanks!23:15
Frank_LeachThanks Eric, that worked fine23:17
Frank_Leachmouse is perfect again23:17
EriC^^Frank_Leach: great, no problem23:17
pouet12345ok I will just reboot then ^^23:18
pouet12345or maybe if I boot a live cd in a vm, I can reach what I23:18
pouet12345mmm no, I won't since I would not mount lvm in the vm23:18
daftykinssure you could23:18

gear4"g++: internal compiler error: Killed (program cc1plus)"23:23
gear4Good Game Well Played, Ubuntu 15.1023:23
pouet12345EriC^^, I don't use update grub to do a multiboot with lvm. I have to load core.img since you can't embed grub inside a lvm partition23:25
pouet12345EriC^^, I found the right syntax in the #grub channel23:26
pouet12345menuentry "load hcpc-linux_trusty 14.04 trusty" {23:26

gear4so can anyone explain to me why only Ubuntu 15.10 fails with gcc 5.3 ?23:26
EriC^^pouet12345: isn't grub in the mbr?23:26
gear4it works perfect on 12.04 so23:26
pouet12345EriC^^, some parts of grub are in the mbr, the other parts are on a regular file system, and you can chainload grub and kernels23:27
EriC^^pouet12345: you're not using a separate /boot?23:28
pouet12345EriC^^, you have a part in the mbr, a part can be in a small grub boot partition, and the rest is in /boot/grub/i386-pc23:28
pouet12345EriC^^, not really. grub2 can find the linux kernel directly on lvm partition23:29
pouet12345EriC^^, so I have a fake /boot partition that contains only /grub/  then from there i use "multiboot (lvm/hcpc-linux_trusty)/boot/grub/i386-pc/core.img"23:30

ouroumovjwynn6, did you sudo apt-get install ssh?23:37
daftykinspretty sure openssh-server being there is not jwynn6's issue ;)23:38
jwynn6yeah, it might be. ive got a server that has no public access but i can ssh into it23:39
jwynn6im trying to update it and figured thats the best way to tunnel access out23:39

jwynn6its in a corp network. firewalled in a dmz, with the exception of ssh23:40
daftykinsupdate what?23:41
jwynn6i can get that from my portion of the corp net, and i can get out to do updates.  trying to tunnel out so i can run apt-get update/upgrade23:41
jwynn6maybe theres a better way to do this. im open to ideas23:43
daftykinsi don't really know what you're trying to achieve23:45
ouroumovMe neither23:45
ouroumovWhy would you need to tunnel out to run apt-get update if you say you can get out to do updates?23:45
jwynn6oh, sorry. my laptop can, but the server cant.23:46
k1l_he wants to tunnel traffic (to run system updates) form a firewalled system over ssh to a workplace machine that can connect outside.23:46
jwynn6yup. correct.23:46
ouroumovUh, okay23:46
k1l_i would ask the admin if he can open ports for that task for that machine23:46
jwynn6it took them a month to approve the ssh port for me to access the server i own.23:48
daftykinsthat sounds like a bad provider23:48
