broadbandDo you think it could cause any errors?00:04
kieppiefor the most part I've not really had much issues with UEFI, but YMMV - most frustrating thing I've found is that not all mobo's like booting form USB or SD00:04

tortibI don't know that's why I'm asking00:15
CoJaBo..so apperently sendfile isn't very portable, even across Linux versions :/00:15
YankDownUndertortib: Have you looked at the actual configuration files...? => ~./config & ./local ?00:16
kieppietortib, YankDownUnder - maybe a setting buried in dconf(?)00:16
kieppieShadeS: i f you wanna change IP form CLI, then use something like `ifconfig $INTERFACE $IPADDRESS netmask $NETMASK up`00:18
kieppieShadeS: gnome network manager also give you option to create profiles via GUI - there's also a handy nmcli tool IINM00:19
tortibkieppie, I looked at a dconf setting that I googled and set the navigation buttons to just close but it didn't make a difference, they're still on the left side00:19

EvanHey guys, I get this error when I try to SSH into a server "/bin/bash: No such file or directory. Connection to IP closed." Any way to fix this? I don't really have any other way into the box01:03
reisio'lo Grorco01:03
reisioEvan: what's your ssh command?01:04
Evanssh user@server01:04
reisiothat's an odd error01:04
reisiowhat's this say? ssh user@server 'which bash; which dash'01:04
Evan/bin/bash: No such file or directory01:05
Grorcosorry this is off topic a bit, but does anyone know if there is an easy way to reverse a pydoc -w statement? I want to extract the code from the html files01:06
de-factoare there any database formats which would be cpu architecture dependent formats? (i guess none because this would be pretty inpractical for interchange and backup)01:07
reisioEvan: dunno how easily fixed that'll be remotely01:08
reisioEvan: how about just ssh user@server 'which dash'01:08
tortibhow can I install cadence for ubuntu?01:08

Evanwait 1 sec01:10
reisioEvan: if you can get file access ("sftp", etc.), you can maybe reconfigure a few things and hope another shell installed will work01:11
reisioor, the hard way, actually fix it with only file access01:11
reisiothe "simple" way is to fix from a live OS01:11
Evanwhat would i need to change?01:11

de-factothen look for that file?01:19
de-factopress Ctr + L to get the input address box01:20

Evannope, connection refused. i don't think it's seutp01:22
de-factohmm dang01:22

de-factowhere does it run? do you have a remote vnc console from your provider maybe?01:22
de-factofor the tty to login?01:23
Evani have no idea01:23

Grorcotortib: whats os is it for?01:28
Guest28246i don"t know01:28
de-factoEvan no idea but at your place id try to look for some options in linode manager to get access to the box. my provider provides me a VNC in html for the TTY1 from where i can login even if network is down in my box01:29
de-factobut even then its the question if you can get (or boot into) a workable shell to look for problems and fix them. you probably can try to boot from a rescue livecd chroot into your ubuntu box from that and fix stuff01:30
de-factoEvan also do you have a backup you can play back? if not, think about making one next time...01:31
de-factoi could recomment duplicity for that01:31
=== bob is now known as Guest28193
Grorcotortib: check out http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Repositories01:32

UnKnOwN|i dont know the options, but can he ssh and request no shell, but send a command to edit default shell in passwd file?01:52
Evanall the same01:52
UnKnOwN|and then restart01:53
de-factoEvan how about ssh user@host cat /etc/passwd01:53
de-factodo you get its content displayed then?01:54
Evanall no /bin/bash01:54
de-factostrange indeed01:54
UnKnOwN|oh also, using scp/sftp u can upload new ssh keys can force commands on login01:54
de-factodoes not work he said01:54
UnKnOwN|can you power cylce the machine?01:54
UnKnOwN|remote ups/apc/pud?01:55
de-factotry with full paths maybe? like   ssh user@host /bin/cat /etc/passwd01:56
UnKnOwN|if pulls the login shell before commands are run01:56
de-factomaybe his PATH is messed up? maybe the while /bin got corrupted?01:58
de-factono idea01:58
UnKnOwN|scp/sftp a idetical passwd file with the user ur trying changed to /bin/sh and figure out or hope you can restart sshd/server or possible sshd reload periodacally?01:58
UnKnOwN|wouldng sshd just look at passwd every time...01:59
UnKnOwN|just scp a new passwd to whatever shell you knows on the linode install02:00
de-factoEvan said sftp/scp would not work02:00
UnKnOwN|sftp give same error?02:00
Evansftp isn't setup AFAIK02:00
UnKnOwN|scp is ssh02:00
Evanit just says connection closed02:01
UnKnOwN|i thought sftp was done by sshd aswell02:01
UnKnOwN|you prob need to physically visit the box, each forum topic about it seemed to end the same...02:02
Evanit's an LINode VPS02:02
Evani have no physical access to it02:02
de-factobut why would it complain about /bin/bash missing if he just runs a command non interactively with absolute path provided to it? like ssh user@host /bin/ls /bin02:02
OerHekstry /bin/busybox ..02:03
de-factoEvan try "ssh user@host /bin/busybox ash"02:04

UnKnOwN|run that on command line02:10
UnKnOwN|replace server with ip02:11
de-factoi never used linode hence i dont know how, but my provider has a vnc integrated into his server manager from where i can do such stuff (it displays tty1 inside an html window)02:11

elly-itari@Drama do you know what I can do to fix my problem?04:27
chinhproi am from in VietNam :D04:27
dramaZhongtiao1,  it should work already04:27

Zhongtiao1I want it to work on windows key04:28
dramaelly-itari, apt-cache show x11-xserver-utils04:29

eirjgoienrgiengelly-itari, what GPU is in your system?04:31
dramaelly-itari, you need more repos04:31
dramasudo apt-get update and try again04:31
dramaelly-itari, that's a good question ^^04:31
elly-itariuh gpu is geforce gtx 960 or something04:32
Guest87842i changed something in gnome terminal profiles and now when i start terminal it enters a loop04:32
eirjgoienrgiengelly-itari, by default the free software nouveau driver is loaded, which sadly does not provide great support due to NVIDIA not being helpful with hardware documentation.04:33
eirjgoienrgiengelly-itari, you need to install the nvidia-driver package and then reboot.04:33
elly-itariI changed it to the um04:33
Guest87842i purged terminal and reinstalled it but the problem persists04:33
elly-itarionce before04:33
elly-itariI had to do that to install steam fsr04:33
Guest87842all i wanna know is where are the profile settings stored for terminal04:33
Guest87842or how to revert to the default04:33
eirjgoienrgiengelly-itari what distribution are you using?04:33
elly-itaridistribution? um04:33
eirjgoienrgiengWhich GNU/Linux OS and version?04:34
eirjgoienrgiengUbuntu 16.04?04:34
elly-itariubuntu 16.04 lts04:34
eirjgoienrgiengOk look in your applications for something called Driver Manager04:34
eirjgoienrgiengOr somethingf in regards to driver.04:34
eirjgoienrgiengDo you find it?04:34
elly-itariI have uh04:34
elly-itariadditional drivers04:34
eirjgoienrgiengOpen it, and there should be an NVIDIA section.04:35
eirjgoienrgiengnouveau should be ticked, but there should be proprietary NVIDIA driver in there. You want to tick that and apply.04:35
elly-itarinvidia corporation?04:35
eirjgoienrgiengThen reboot, and you should be fine, nomodeset is no longer required.04:35
elly-itarilike I said I'm already using the nvidia-36104:35
eirjgoienrgiengWhen the nouveau free driver matures more (hopefully with the help of NVIDIA), you do not have to do this any more in the future.04:35
elly-itarihow do I turn off nomodeset04:35
eirjgoienrgiengYou simply do not add it into the GRUB launch option.04:36
eirjgoienrgiengWhen you boot.04:36
eirjgoienrgiengWhere did you add nomodeset?04:36
elly-itariwhen I installed ubuntu04:36
eirjgoienrgiengYou usually add something like that in the GRUB boot menu.04:36
eirjgoienrgiengWhich you need to do every time.04:37
eirjgoienrgiengUnless you modify some files.04:37
elly-itariI couldn't install it without using nomodeset04:37
eirjgoienrgiengWhere did you enter nomodeset?04:37
eirjgoienrgiengHow did you activate it?04:37
elly-itaribecause I'd get an error screen saying input not supported04:37
eirjgoienrgiengDid the setup provide an option for it?04:37
eirjgoienrgiengWell it only applies during the installer.04:37
elly-itariI used e to edit the command line.04:37
eirjgoienrgiengnomodeset is not set unless you specifically modify files to have it on permanently.04:37
eirjgoienrgiengThat makes it temporary.04:37
elly-itariso it's already off?04:38
Zhongtiao1drama: changing c-escape to exit doesn't work04:38
elly-itarioriginally after I installed it, I only had 1 resolution option04:38
elly-itarinow I have 4 but none of them are the right one.04:38
eirjgoienrgiengelly-itari type this in a terminal and share the output: lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'04:39
elly-itarielly@elly-desktop:~$ lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use' Kernel driver in use: nvidia Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel04:39
eirjgoienrgiengAre you on a laptop?04:39
eirjgoienrgiengType xrandr in a terminal now.04:40
eirjgoienrgiengxrandr will display the resolution modes available currently.04:40
eirjgoienrgiengDoes xrandr show a 1920x1080 option?04:40
eirjgoienrgiengWhat have you done so far to try to fix this?04:40
dramaZhongtiao1, it worked in my 16.04 lubuntu without changing anything04:40
elly-itariI used the internet to see what I can do but to be honest I don't know what any of it does04:40
elly-itariI'm literally brand new to ubuntu04:41
eirjgoienrgiengNormally if you just install Ubuntu, use nomodeset if you can not boot in, then install the NVIDIA driver and afterwards no longer use nomodeset on boot, things should work fine.04:41
elly-itariwell the odd thing is04:41
elly-itariI only had to use nomodeset on install04:41
elly-itariso I kinda just assumed it never went away04:41
eirjgoienrgiengNope, you need to set it each time specifically in the e grub thing.04:41
elly-itarioh. I never got that menu04:42
elly-itariit just booted .04:42
eirjgoienrgiengAfter you installed the NVIDIA driver, did you reboot?04:42
dramaZhongtiao1, who knows.. it was an upgrade from 15.10 and my desktop splash screen didn't change so who knows04:42
elly-itariactually, I did that because that was how I had to install steam.04:42
dramathat's why it has a tight resolution04:42
dramanvidia-settings --query all | grep -i resolution04:43
dramanvidia-settings --help04:43
eirjgoienrgiengelly-itari I recommend you uninstall the NVIDIA driver (by switching back to nouveau).04:43
eirjgoienrgiengThen rebooting, and reinstalling it.04:43
eirjgoienrgiengThen reboot again.04:43
elly-itariby switching back to it?04:43

thetravnot without a gateway I don't05:23
thetravthe box doesn't know how to route the packets05:23
yigalthetrav: it's going to be for each NIC, so in the /etc/interfaces or /etc/interfaces.d/<NIC FIle> you'll set 'gateway <IP>'05:24

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/UEFI05:57

AndChat393204Yes right .. i will reinstall the system but i'm afraid it will happen again05:58
JoralAndChat393204, secureboot basically uses a checksum to ensure that the kernel that is booting matches its signature, you should be able to disable secure boot in the uefi/bios menu05:59

ducassejenenliu: unity06:12
eonumbreonI might try it agaib then06:12
elbo22Grorco: this is following an upgrade06:12
elly-itarium okay so @eirjgoienrgieng it... didn't really work06:12
Joraleonumbreon, it can certainly be annoying, but for what it is it provides a great service.  For OEM's their target audience is quickly becoming grandmas touchsreen windows 8 machine, or enterprise secure thin clients. in both cases the ability to ensure that a third party kernel does not get installed and loaded at reboot is a very good thing06:12
elly-itarican anyone else help me?06:12
Grorcoelbo22: k my internets stuipid I'm still trying to load your page :(06:13
jenenliuyep, unity, is there tilling extension for unity ?06:13
elly-itarican anyone help me? I'm trying to get my resolution to 1920x1080 but it's not in the display options.06:13
ubottuYum! Err, I mean, APT!06:13
ducasseJakesDen: talk to the guys in #freenode i know of06:13
ducassejenenliu: not that i know of06:14
Grorcoelbo22: what card do you have?06:14
elbo22im not sure, its part of my motherboard06:15
jenenliuducasse: i see, thanks06:15
Joralwow, i can't count the number of times ive seen the botsnack and I just now caught the but in the response.06:16
eonumbreonWhat does it do?06:16
ducassejenenliu: if you switch to gnome, look for the extension 'shellshape'.06:16
Grorcoelbo22: it should tell you in your drivers06:16
Joraleonumbreon, who were you talking too?06:16
jenenliuducasse: do you like playing with gnome ?06:16
elly-itariplease please help me...06:17
eonumbreonThe botsnack commandlet06:17
ducassejenenliu: i don't use gnome, i use i306:17
elbo22Grorco: lspci ?06:17
Joraleonumbreon, it just makes the bot echo that response06:17
eonumbreonJoral oh ok? Just an easter egg then?06:17
defektbut he does get hungry06:18
Joralworst part is I started with rh9 so I should have caught that a long time ago lol06:18
eonumbreonOh i just got what it meant06:18
Joralelly-itari, I'm no expert but in my experience if a resolution does not appear as an option it means that either the card or the driver does not support that resolution06:21
jenenliuducasse: i3 is one of my choices06:22
elly-itariwell how do I change the driver then?06:22
jenenliuducasse: and the haskell one, I just can't remember the name, do you just try i3 and then use it?06:23
OerHekselly-itari, have you tried to reset the monitor itself with its own buttons?06:23
ducassejenenliu: i tried i3, awesome and a couple others, and liked i3 best.06:24
Grorcoelbo22: Sorry I need to try to restart my internet :( but yes it should be under network-controller I'll hopefully be back in a minute06:25
elly-itariwell I just did but it kinda just bandaided the issue...06:25
elly-itariit's not bona fide 1920x1080 resolution.06:25
jenenliuwhat kind of features of i3 that makes you choose it ?06:26
Joralelly-itari, https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/946180/linux/ubuntu-how-to-use-nvidia-drivers-/06:26
Joralelly-itari, I don't know that I would recommend the proprietary nvidia driver but that thread tells you how if you want to take that risk06:27
ducassejenenliu: just liked the way it works, and it's easy to configure.06:27
Ben64elly-itari: what driver are you running now?06:27
OerHeksuse the official ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa if you *need* better drivers, not the .run file06:27
OerHeksbut resoluion changed, that is a start06:28
JoralOerHeks, that thread covered the PPA, I made sure of it :P06:28
=== Zzyzx is now known as THX1138
elly-itariBen64: When I started, I was using the nvidia proprietary driver thingy that's in the drivers menu. (not nouveau)06:29
elly-itariI'm currently on nouveau because I've been trying to follow the instructions of people who failed to help.06:29
Ben64well nouveau isn't what you want for optimal performance06:29
elly-itariBut the driver I was using before didn't solve the issue either.06:30
Ben64because the problem isn't the driver06:30
Joralelly-itari, what graphics card do you have?06:30
OerHeksnow the reset did something, good chance the driver will work better now06:30
elly-itariJoral: evga geforce gtx 96006:30
OerHeksbe logical.06:31
Ben64i'm putting my money on the problem being bad edid from the monitor06:31
Ben64it's how the monitor tells the gpu what resolutions it can support06:31
Ben64get back on the nvidia driver and we can continue06:32
jenenliuducasse: ok, thanks, I think I'll try some of them too06:32
hispeed67i have an ubuntu installation on /dev/sda on a laptop that i want to clone to a new hard drive, but i also want to change the filesystem... i.e. it's installed on ext4, i want to use btrfs06:32
hispeed67what do you guys think the best/easiest/fastest way to do it is?06:32
OerHekshispeed67, backup and re-install06:34
hispeed67full backup, swap drive, fresh install, full restore??06:35
Joralelly-itari, what monitor do you have?06:35
Joralhispeed67, yes that would be the best06:35
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can use the !software package "apt-clone" - See also !automate06:36
hispeed67clone is pkg selection, it won't catch source code i've installed and compiled.. i.e. /home dir06:38
Sookieheya anyone know resinator in here?06:39
Sookieaka Mitch06:39
elly-itarialright I'm on the nvidia driver06:39
elly-itarithe only 16:9 resolution available to me is 1360x76806:40
Ben64elly-itari: type this on the terminal, and give the url here "xrandr | nc termbin.com 9999"06:40
UnKnOwN|set a termbin alias aswell ;-) i love mine...06:41
hispeed67wait.. there has to be a better way.. i can put them both in same computer and tar from one drive to the other..06:41
Ben64just as i suspected...06:41
Ben64elly-itari: what monitor? how is it connected?06:42
elly-itariit's connected through a dvi adapter into the graphics card. why?06:42
Ben64dvi to vga?06:42
elly-itarier wait06:42
elly-itariother way around.06:42
Ben64well, can you use an actual dvi the whole way, or hdmi, or displayport?06:43
Ben64you'd get a much better image and it'd work at 1920x108006:43
elly-itariI'm not sure what you mean.06:43
elly-itariif I had an actual dvi cable I could. :/06:43
Ben64so... get one :D06:44
tortibIs there a session saver for gnome that will remember my applications that are opened and window position?06:44
elly-itariand what happens when I get one and the issue isn't fixed?06:44
Ben64what monitor is it06:45
elly-itariaoc something06:45
Ben64then it'll work on dvi-d06:46
elly-itariwhat does that mean06:46
Ben64d is digital06:46
elly-itariwhich means what06:46
elly-itariwhy will it work on dvi-d06:46
Ben64the xrandr output you posted shows it using dvi-i, which is analog06:46
elly-itariI don't get it.06:48
Joralvga is the bottleneck, it wont allow a fast enough connection to the monitor to support that high of a resolution06:48
elly-itariwhy would it be analog if it's plugged into the dvi port06:48
elly-itariwhat does it mean that it's analog06:48
elly-itariand why is that significant06:48
Ben64Joral: not true06:48
Joralvga is analog and your using a vga adapter which disables the digital component06:48
Ben64vga can do high resolutions, it just sucks06:49
elly-itarimy boyfriend has the same setup06:49
elly-itariand his runs 1080p06:49
elly-itaribut he has windows.06:49
Ben64good for him, one up him by going digital06:49
elly-itariwell we have another option.06:50
elly-itariI can try to plug my computer into my tv (hdmi) and see if that changes anything.06:50
Ben64less than $606:50
Ben64pretty sure i mentioned using hdmi earlier too06:50
elly-itariyou mentioned using hdmi, but it's a tv.06:51
elly-itarinot the same monitor.06:51
elly-itarimy monitor doesn't have hdmi support afaik06:51
Ben64some tv's supply wonky edid too, notably visio06:51
elly-itariidk what kind of tv it is tbh06:52
JoralBen64, would you be willing to help me address my vga setup when your wrapped up with this?06:52
elly-itariit's pretty big.06:52
elly-itarianyway brb, moving comp06:52
Ben64Joral: ask your question to the channel06:53
JoralI have an emac with integrated radeon 9200 (rv280), it boots to a blank screen unless I pass 'video=VGA-1:1024x768@89' at boot.  When it does boot like this the screen is shifted left and the system becomes extremely unstable.  From ssh I was able to discover that Xorg.log says "output vga-0 has no monitor section" and its probing the resolution modes at 20hz lower than the monitor is rated.06:58
elly-itariso you were right07:04
elly-itariupon further inspection of my monitor's options, it is in fact locked to 1280x76807:05
elly-itarithanks for the help07:05
ziggyfishHi, I am trying to run a script that Hide My Ass has provided for accessing their VPN system. HMA uses the OpenVPN service to manage the connection. For some reason the script is stopping at "Waiting for connection to complete...". Having read through the script, I found that it runs "service openvpn start HMA". I am guessing this works with older versions of ubuntu, however I think because 16.04 runs systemd, it fails. So my question is what is the sy07:08
ziggyfishstemd equivalent to "service openvpn start HMA"07:08

shagenilaHi I need some help diagnosing random ubuntu crashes07:27
shagenilaI have 14.0407:27
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, ok07:28
shagenilaI checked /var/log/syslog but there's nothing out of the ordinary07:28
SebthreeBQM10HD!details shagenila07:28
ubottuPlease elaborate; your question or issue may not seem clear or detailed enough for people to help you. Please give more detailed information; for example, we might need errors, steps, relevant configuration files, Ubuntu version, and hardware information. Use a !pastebin to avoid flooding the channel.07:28
shagenilalike the log would just stop right after a cron.hourly07:28
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, crashes when ?07:28
SebthreeBQM10HDand how?07:28
shagenilait's really random07:28
shagenilaI just installed my system07:29
SebthreeBQM10HDcrashes as  in what exactly ?07:29
shagenilaand so far it has freezed 3 times07:29
SebthreeBQM10HDcrash can be differnet things07:29
shagenila(sorry I really mean freeze)07:29
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, a freeze ok, so maybe a kernel panic07:29
shagenilawhen it froze I tried the REISUB trick but it didn't work07:29
shagenilaso all 3 times I had to power cycle07:29
SebthreeBQM10HDfreeze as in black screen07:29
shagenilaI did fsck but results are normal07:29
SebthreeBQM10HDor freeze as in  freeze with something on the screen ?07:29
shagenilano the screen just becomes unresponsive to any input07:30
shagenilamy ssh from another machine also stops working07:30
SebthreeBQM10HDon what kind of computer?  RAM? Proccesseger, graphics card etc07:30
SebthreeBQM10HDhow old is the computer as well?07:31
shagenilacpu is i7-479007:31
shagenilait's fairly new07:31
shagenilagpu is gtx 1080, the new card07:31
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, well sure if it crashes your not going to be able to ssh probably into the crashed computer07:31
shagenilawell I was considering the possibility of graphic driver crash07:31
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, which make graphics card is that?07:31
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, 14.04 is old07:32
shagenilanvidia gtx 108007:32
shagenilait's LTS07:32
SebthreeBQM10HDyes, but07:32
SebthreeBQM10HDit may lack support for some of your hardware07:32
SebthreeBQM10HDsince you got a new machine07:32
shagenilaI'm a developer so I need some stability07:32
SebthreeBQM10HDthere's 16.04 now anyway as the latest LTS07:32
SebthreeBQM10HDnice and new07:32
shagenilaI heard it's unstable07:32
shagenilaanyway can you help me diagnose the problem at hand?07:33
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, that would probably work better on your machine, some people get a few issues with any new release or at first anyway07:33
shagenilaactually everything is almost 2 years old except the graphics card07:33
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, that's also why the LTS To LTS upgrade doesn't happen untill the new LTS has a point one release, but that shoudn't put you off installing it yourself already and trying it07:33
shagenilaalso I need the CUDA toolkit, which is not compatible with 16.04 yet07:33
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, what's the CUDA tookit ?07:34
shagenilaGPU programming toolkit07:34
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, uh there's a ppa for that?  or a way for you to install it yourself from upsream? surely ?  if not in repos etc07:34
Joralthat irked me about the upgrade, I lost opencl support07:34
shagenilain any case do you know where I should look to diagnose the cause of freeze?07:34
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, well the log files, but you said nothing was in there07:35
shagenilaCUDA toolkit is available from NVIDIA07:35
shagenilaoh another thing07:35
shagenilamy system is installed on a usb hard drive (not flash)07:35
shagenilait's a full install, not a live persistent system07:35
shagenilais there a possibility that the drive gets disconnected temporarily causing freeze07:36
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, ok probably woudn't matter much either way, but a real install should really go on a hard disk :)07:36
Joraldoes the 16.04 kernel still support nvidia drivers? I know it dropped support for the AMD drivers07:36
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, I belive there's a propritary Niviad driver avaialbe for 16.04 for Nvidia,  so not just the default open driver07:36
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, and that was only dropped for some AMD  it seems07:37
* defekt feels like farting07:37
JoralSebthreeBQM10HD, my laptop was one of them and the updater didn't bother to let me know until it was done07:37
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, maybe it does get disconnected temporly casuing crash, try and install it on a hard disk ?07:37
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, put on acomputer for real, and then see what happens ?07:37
UKMechanicCan anyone help me with a Qt/kvirc timestamp problem?07:38
shagenilaSebthreeBQM10HD: is there a way to directly transfer the data from the usb disk to a internal hdd07:38
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, well propriary drivers don't just get installed by default, if that's what you mean07:38
Joraloops hit the kb lol07:39
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, as in the whole OS yeah maybe not sure quite how to though,  things from /home though you could copy over I guess07:39
* SebthreeBQM10HD is sebsebseb07:40
JoralSebthreeBQM10HD, I had fglrx installed and the update removed fglrx without informing me that fglrx did not exist on the new version.07:40
shagenilaSebthreeBQM10HD: setting up the whole development environment took a long time and I'd rather just move everything over07:40
SebthreeBQM10HDshagenila, you probably can, but I don't know the details of how07:40
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, yes the AMD driver?  yep  certain AMD thing has been dropped07:41
JoralSebthreeBQM10HD, I understand that now, but the frustration was that I was not given that warning prior to the update or I would not have done the update07:42
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, yeah indeed and quite a few people get effected by the old propritary driver being dropped07:42
SebthreeBQM10HDjoral since the open one wasn't quite good enough or whatever, and no I don't use AMD graphics by the way07:43
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, I think flgx is the one they had a article on omgubuntu about though07:43
JoralSebthreeBQM10HD, I would be happy to use the opensource driver if only it would implement opencl, but for some reason it doesn't07:44
Joraland even if I get a nvidia card for my desktop, my amd graphics card is on my cpu so I can't just take it out lol07:45
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, ok I am using an Ubuntu tablet at the moment :)  but can't copy and paste just yet using the software Ubuntu Touch, but they are working on a update for that awesome :).  So uhmm if you go to omgubuntu.co.uk and search for fglrx you could bring up the old blog post from March about that, which might be useful or of interest if not at least still07:47
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, but I can't really help you further07:48
JoralSebthreeBQM10HD, sorry, didn't mean to turn it into a rant and I understand that it is an issue with amd not canonical, just felt like that could have been a warning for a LTS version update07:49
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, there may have been a warnig actually, but in the release notes, that well I  guess not that many people actually read :D07:49
ubottuUbuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) is the current release of Ubuntu. Download at http://www.ubuntu.com/download - Read the release notes at http://ubottu.com/y/xenial07:50
ubottuUbuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) release notes can be found here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes07:50
ducasseJoral: it is _clearly_ mentioned in the release notes for xenial, and people are expected to read those before upgrading.07:53
Joralducasse, the why is the update an automated popup that does not offer the user the option to even open the release notes.  I simply clicked yes you can update.  I'm not saying that it wasn't an idiot move on my part, I'm simply saying that a part of decent software development should be idiot proofing the major things.07:55
ducasseJoral: update from 14.04?07:55
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, ok I agree with that there should be a link to read the release notes if there was't07:56
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, but you can blame the devs  for that if there wasn't :D h e h07:56
ducasseJoral: you need to use the -d switch to upgrade trusty to xenial at this point (until july 21st) - you shouldn't have gotten a popup at all.07:56
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, yeah and LTS to LTS upgrades don't get started untill the point 1  which is soon ish07:57
pjaypabsanybody in here?07:57
Joralducasse, didn't have to don't know any further than that as I don't have the laptop in front of me, but it popped up about 2 months ago07:57
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, what ducasse put07:57
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, nope07:57
ducasseJoral: that should _not_ happen.07:58
ducasse!ltsupgrade | Joral07:58
ubottuJoral: Users of 14.04 LTS will be offered the automatic upgrade when 16.04.1 LTS is released, which is scheduled for July 21st.07:58
xdswhy can I ssh to localhost but not the ip?07:58
pjaypabsnew to linux here.. anybody can give me guide07:59
pjaypabswhich things needed to learn 1st07:59
ubottuThe Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/07:59
Joralducasse, popped up just like any other update and next thing I know its doing a dist upgrade, didn't bother me as I didn't think about any issues.  heck the one bit of customization I had done was to install fglrx for opencl support lol07:59
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, there ^07:59
pjaypabshave been experiencing random freezes like cant do right click or open any applications08:00
pjaypabsso i need to make a hard reset/08:00
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, on what kind of computer? graphics card? proccsser ram? age of computer?08:01
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, Ubuntu or pretty much any othe Linux distribution as well, should all generally work quite well on most computers, nice and stable and relible, way more so than Windows for example08:02
Joralis there a utility to auto generate an xorg.conf?08:02
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, so crashing is a bit hmm really, unless hardware issues usually08:02
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, uh probably08:02
ubottuX.Org is an implementation of the X Windows System, and is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart it on an Ubuntu system, type 'sudo service lightdm restart'. To fix screen resolution or other X.Org problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution . See also !xorgconf08:02
ducasseJoral: then that would be a bug. until .1 is released it should take a conscious effort on your part to upgrade. but i agree, it should still offer a link to the release notes. there have been a ton of people in here with the exact same problem, none of whom read the release notes, but still actively forced an upgrade.08:03

crazyhorse18jiggawattz, is not vlc08:03
crazyhorse18vlc doesn't work, can't get it to work08:03
SebthreeBQM10HDcrazyhorse18, what's x265 ?08:03
crazyhorse18spent hours googling etc08:04
crazyhorse18SebthreeBQM10HD, a video codec, the successor to h.26408:04
ubottuFor multimedia issues, this page has useful information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats - See also https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/media.html  - But please use free formats if you can: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeFormats08:04
SebthreeBQM10HDcrazyhorse18, I guess you could instll the ubuntu restircted extras, but that may not have support for that, which means then your stuck trying to get it working with vlc I guss basically if so08:05
Joralducasse, in all fairness I need to go check I may be running a variant, cant remember if I went with ubuntu, lubuntu, or kubuntu, but I cant imagine that the core functions like that would be different between variants08:05
SebthreeBQM10HDJoral, nope any of the offical falvous, so kubuntu xubuntu and what not, should all work or not work the same for your issue08:05
pjaypabssorry doing dishes.. found an old unit tried to installed linux for surfing purpose08:05
pjaypabsintel duo 2gb ram hd graphics08:06
ducasseJoral: should not matter.08:06
Joraldidn't think so, but full disclosure and all :P08:06
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, but its crashing? which versin of ubuntu ?08:06
pjaypabsubuntu mate 16.0408:06
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, hmm08:06
ducassecrazyhorse18: there aremany other video players, try smplayer08:06
crazyhorse18ok apt-getting now08:07
SebthreeBQM10HDpjaypabs, you could try a re install,  but it should work on your computer it seems08:07
pjaypabsyea i think so.. the mouse working08:07
pjaypabsbut suddenly cant do right click08:07
crazyhorse18annoys me vlc doesn't work .. been using it since 200108:07
pjaypabsand cant click gpanel08:07
pjaypabsi did 208:07
SebthreeBQM10HDcrazyhorse18, not vlc's fault, taht's a propritary closed source thing you want to use08:07
xdswhy can I ssh to localhost but not the ip?08:08
crazyhorse18SebthreeBQM10HD, vlc plays everything including h.26508:08
crazyhorse18SebthreeBQM10HD, vlc just doesn't work on my installation of ubuntu08:08
SebthreeBQM10HDcrazyhorse18,  for legal reasons most distros' don't provide support for propritary closed source patented etc codecs as well,  even Mint has dropped their support more recently08:08
SebthreeBQM10HDdefault support08:08
crazyhorse18VLC natively out of the box works with h.264 and h.265 without doing anything08:09
SebthreeBQM10HDcrazyhorse18, vlc works to play other things no problem right ?08:09
crazyhorse18VLC works on all my other computers.. it's my desktop vlc is broken completly08:09
LostSoul_I'm aving this problem, my wget uses proxy and I can't find where it's set. I checked env http_proxy but it's unset, any tip?08:09

crazyhorse18i.e. can't play a single video, not just h.26508:10
ducassexds: can you ssh in from another host?08:10
xdsducasse, negative. I can ping the external ip, but I can't ssh to it from any machine08:11
crazyhorse18smplayer / miro  and the other one don't work either08:11
crazyhorse18i'm beginning to think it's ubuntu08:11
ducassexds: then sshd is probably not bound to that interface. check with netstat.08:11

xdsducasse, ssh works on LAN ip and localhost08:12
ducassexds: so you _can_ ssh to the ip?08:13
crazyhorse18MPV player worked :D08:13
xdsducasse, LAN ip not internet IP08:13
crazyhorse18hahaha. 6 programs.. and then one works08:13
LostSoul_Any idea? :)08:13
plop_its_elliempv is pretty awesome08:13
ducassexds: two interfaces?08:13
xdsducasse, two different interfaces, yes08:14
crazyhorse18does mpv not have a menu?08:14
ducassexds: then again, check with netstat if sshd is bound to that interface.08:14
xdsducasse, what command?08:14
ducassexds: 'netstat -tulpn'08:15
xdstcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      20003/sshd08:16

Joralis there a way do work with X through ssh? every tool I use like xvinfo or xrandr all say unable to open display but when I am able to get the screen to work on the local machine they work08:16
ducassexds: so it's bound to all interfaces. you probably have iptables rules blocking the traffic, would be my guess.08:17
xdsducasse, hmm ok08:17
ducasseJoral: 'ssh -X'08:17
Shawn186anyone know how to get svideo output testing on ubuntu?08:18
ducassecrazyhorse18: mpv is a cli player, there are interfaces for it, you can tell smplayer to use it instead of mplayer08:19
crazyhorse18yeah i see08:20
Joralducasse, still getting the can't open display. might be a putty issue?08:20
crazyhorse18I'm surprised there isin't a pure javascript version of these players yet08:20
ducasseJoral: you're doing this from _windows_?08:20
ducasseJoral: windows does not have an x server.08:21
Joralno I wan't to work with the remote xserver to fix the monitor configuration causing the blank screen08:21
Joralbut I need tools that let me from cli08:22
xdswhy can I ssh to localhost but not the ip?08:23
ducasseJoral: oh, try 'export DISPLAY=:0.0'08:23
ducassexds: i answered that.08:23
xdsducasse, you believe it's iptables, I don't08:24
ducassexds: did you _check_ iptables?08:24
xdsducasse, don't know how mate08:24
Joralnow i get invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-108:25
ducassexds: 'sudo iptables -L'08:25
xdsducasse, it gives me an empty list. so it's probably not iptables08:25
ducasseJoral: yes, 'export XAUTHORITY=/home/username/.Xauthority'08:26
Joralstill get the invalid mit magic cookie08:27
akikJoral: ssh -X doesn't let you control the remote x window server. it enables you to show the remote app on your own screen08:28
Joralso how to I remotely control the x server08:28
SebthreeBQM10HD 08:29
ducassexds: weird, sshd should be bound to all interfaces. you could try manually starting an sshd to explicitly listen on another port on that interface, and try connecting to that.08:30
xdsducasse, okay08:30
akikJoral: i don't know a way so that you could see the result yourself08:31
Joralakik, what do you mean so that I could see the result myself? I have two computers sitting on the same desk, one of which has a botched monitor config so I am trying to dynamically set the monitor via ssh so that I can figure out what works08:32
Joralbut every tool i try tells me cannot open display08:33
akikJoral: oh ok just starting the login manager should do it then08:34
ducassexds: '/usr/sbin/sshd -o ListenAddress=ip.address.goes.here -p 2022' then try connecting to it by specifying the port.08:34
Joralakik, but i can't see the login manager, what I need is cli tools to work dynamically work with x that I can run with ssh\08:35
Joralthe only output i have atm is ssh08:36
ducasseJoral: can't you login to a virtual console on the host itself and just delete the monitor config?08:36
Joralducasse, no the config has the wrong refresh rate so the monitor go black, ive got nothing on the actual monitor08:37
ducasseJoral: even if you switch to a console?08:38
Joralembedded crt so there are no controls for the monitor either08:38
akikJoral: do you have a backup of the working configuration file?08:38
Joralno I cannot get a console I have no screen what so ever, and no there is no config file as the new x.org doesn't use config files08:39
akikyou can do all the configuration via ssh. then try to start the login manager through ssh08:39
Joralthat is what I have been asking for five hours08:39
ducasseJoral: what did you use to configure x in the first place?08:40
Joralducasse, nothing08:40
akikJoral: it depends of the ubuntu version, either service lightdm start or systemctl start lightdm08:40
akikJoral: ok so you have never used x11 on this other machine?08:41
Joralakik not successfully, no08:41
Joralit is an eMac with embedded radeon 920008:41
Joralto clarify, not on ubuntu, I have had it working on gentoo but can't remember exactly what the xorg.conf looked like08:43
akikJoral: how did you install ubuntu on it?08:43
Joralthrough the fb device, but once I installed X the radeon driver went to crap08:43
ducasseJoral: you will probably need to generate a modeline and write your own xorg.conf snippet.08:43
JoralI can force the screen to work using the 'video=VGA:1024x768@89' kernel switch but the whole system becomes unstable and locks up after about 3 minutes when I do that08:45

akikJoral: i can share you the xorg.conf i have for nvidia driver if you want08:50
Joralakik, I wouldn't know what to do with it, the issue I am having is that the probe is getting the incorrect refresh rates for the monitor, but when I force those refresh rates the system becomes unstable08:52
akikJoral: how did you manage to do it in gentoo? that's how you did it in ubuntu too08:53
JoralIf I am going about this wrong I am open to suggestions, i'm just frustrated and its late but I have been ignored for two evenings in a row.  On top of that I recognize that the vast majority of this conversation should be had in ubuntu-powerpc but that has been dead for the entire time08:53
Joralakik, manually compiled radeon with the deprecated UMS support was the biggest difference I believe08:54
ducasseJoral: didn't you talk about this yesterday, that you needed to build your own kernel to get ums?08:54
Joralducasse, yes but I am not shure how to go about that in ubuntu in a manner that will safely allow me to persistently keep the change08:55
wiehanIn order to test some php scripts, for basic web development, what is the minimum packages I need to install on 16.04 for it to work. Is it even needed to install any packages? Basically just a simple html file that calls 1 php script with ajax/jquery.08:56
l9how do i untar a bz2 or a 7z ?08:57
ma__rchey guys, quick question: i'm running 16.04 in live usb mode on another laptop beside me... system monitor tells me there are about 1 gig in use. is that normal ? I mean, I'm just watching the system monitor, not doing anything else08:58
l9and i am not reffering too tar -zvxf or -jxf08:58
ikoniama__rc: keep in mind it keeps your whole file system, operatinging system and processes in ram08:59
l9ma__rc: the whole live image is loaded into it what do you think?08:59
Shawn186aww supertuxkart is only for modern and high end video at least09:00
l9ikonia: duh you know that if you poor this bucket into the well would then see it rise?09:01
ma__rcwell, i had it installed on hdd a few days back and it was the same thing...09:01
ma__rcalso read about memory leaks09:01
ikonial9: what ?09:01
ikoniama__rc: it will use ram for caching until you need it09:01
xdswhy can I ssh to localhost and LAN ip but not external/internet ip?09:02
ikoniama__rc: if you think you actually have a memory problem it can be investigated in more detail09:02
ikoniaxds: I suspect you're using some "port forwarding" solution on a home router ?09:02
xdsikonia, I tried both with port forwarding and without, in the router settings09:03
l9my computer runs at 11 Gig all the time if you want too know everything uses you should start keeping an on htop telling you in real time what and where it is happening...09:03
ikoniaxds how do you expect it to work without port forwarding ?09:03
ikoniaxds: bottom line is either a.) your machine is not being presented to the public internet (most likley) b.) something is blockign port 22 - most likley ISP if it's not you09:03
* l9 gone again too high way for me see ya on tha bus09:04
xdsikonia, default settings should allow individual pcs connected to the router, all with their own ip, to allow connections09:04
ikonial9: please disable your away message09:04
ikoniaxds: I doubt that09:04
xdsikonia, what do you mean by not being presented to the public internet?09:04
alchemistswlxds do you want to ssh into your box on the external ip within your own lan?09:04
ikoniaxds: more so when it's forwarded to the internet09:04
xdsalchemistswl, yes09:04
alchemistswlalot of routers block that because of dns rebind attacks09:04
alchemistswluse canyouseeme.org and look if the port is opened09:05
xdsalchemistswl, Error: I could not see your service on on port (22)09:05
xdsReason: Connection timed out09:05
alchemistswlBut your did forward the port atm, yes?09:06
xdsalchemistswl, yes. pointing to LAN ip of sshd machine09:06
alchemistswlis sshd even started?09:06
xdsalchemistswl, yes. I can connect to it from different machines within the LAN09:06
ikoniawithin the lan doesn't matter09:07
ikoniawhat matters is what and how it's presented to the public internet09:07
xdsikonia, what should I tinker with?09:07
ikoniaxds: %90 of these problems come from poor home grade comsumer routes port forwarding09:07
alchemistswlWell the only problem I can find (taking into account that the port is forwarded properly) is that the ISP might block access to 22. Its generally a bad idea running SSH on 22 on public internet. change the port to something different, forward it and try again09:07
ikoniaxds: %5 will be local setup %5 will be ISP blocking you09:07
ikoniait's not a bad idea to run ssh on 2209:08
xdsoh well. guess I'll give up then09:08
alchemistswlikonia if you would like your logs to be spammed with bruteforce attempts then go ahead, if you use password-auth, its even worrse09:08
ikoniaalchemistswl: thats no different than running it on a different port as most bots scan for header then attack09:09
ikoniait's more important to secure the port, rather than change it09:09
alchemistswlxds just try changing the ssh port, forward it again and try09:09
alchemistswlikonia bots usually dont do full port scans on your machine, so if I run SSH on say: 7234 they dont know it09:10
alchemistswlbut thats besides the point of port forwarding now, I guess.09:10
akikalchemistswl: fyi just changing the port is no security fix09:13
alchemistswlakik its not a fix for a) bad password b) password auth i.g. c) vulnerable software09:14
alchemistswlbut it stops spamming my auth.log with bruteforce attempts, yes I could just use fail2ban, but yeah.09:14

JayantHI Tatertots, I am using Western Digital external hdd. It was working fine till yesterday. I was moving some files and it froze my system.11:27
JayantI rebooted it, since then, nautilus is not displaying my hdd11:27
JayantHowever, it is listed in lsusb output11:28
zteamJayant, does your harddrive show up in Gparted?11:28
JayantNo, but disks shows it11:29
tatertotsJayant have you attempted to check the disk for errors and then repair any errors?11:29
zteamJayant, you mean it show no partitions in Gparted (but the disk itself shows up right?11:30
JayantNo, forums suggest it should be done by a windows ssytem as its file system is ntfs but windows also didn't recognize it.11:30
MonkeyDustJayant  what's the output of    lsblk -f ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/11:30

zteamJayant, it seems that the partition table is gone from that drive, you can try to use TestDisk to restore it11:41
Jayantzteam, TestDisk is also unable to detect the drive :-(11:42
Jayantzteam, If it helps, The hdd contains 3 partitons, 2 are empty and still unable to mount. he 3rd one containing the data, is showing all the top level directories but there is no content in them11:43

zteamJayant, from what I can see I would say it seems like a hardware fault, since the system can't even detect the size of the hardrive correctly, it also seems the disk is trying to recover errors but fail11:57
zteamJayant, you can see the health status about your hardrive in Disk Utility I belive it will look quite bad11:58

Jayantzteam, It's strange, The drive is brand new, no physical damage. It was working one minute and another minute it is almost dead12:00

zteamJayant maybe...12:01
=== john is now known as Guest6990
Jayantzteam, there is no info about health. Can you suggest me some tool to check it?12:02
zteamJayant, stupid question but have you tried to connect the drive to another usb-port, switched usb-cables, tested it on another computer and so on12:02
JayantYes, All results in same :-(12:02
zteamJayant, if it supports SMART status i believe Disk Utility should tell you it12:03
zteamJayant, but you can try Speedfan it's a Windows utility12:04
Jayantzteam, disks utility have only 2 options enable.  to power down and to edit mount options12:05
Jayantzteam, sure, Let me install it and I'll get back to you. Thanks12:05
zteamJayant, You can also try to mirror your drive / parttions with ddrescure and then try to mount these image-files and run TestDisk one them12:06
Jayantzteam, I'll try ddrescue firs12:07
zteamJayant, I'm not sure if ddrescue knows what to work with in your case but you can always try :-)12:08
zteamJayant, just remember ddrescue needs another drive to write too12:10
Jayantzteam, What should I try first? ddrescue or speenfan?12:10
zteamJayant, Speedfan will just list the health status about your drive, it will only take a few seconds :-)12:11

BluesKajHiyas all12:23
pseudonymousDo anyone know of and operate a simpler mailserver stack than something like postfix+dovecot (or similar, classic setups)12:28
ikoniapseudonymous: not going to get easier than postfix+dovecot type setup12:32
ikoniathey are all of that level apart from sendmail which is a bit more complex12:32
pseudonymousReally ? Of all the services I've ever configured, none has been more complex and broken than setting up a mail server. Last I did it, I recall setting up some 5 services or so, definiting database schemas for user accounts and whatnot. There's really no integrated solution that will do for simple, personal servers ?12:33
ikoniapseudonymous: it's not a toy12:33
ducassepseudonymous: email _is_ complex.12:34
pseudonymousI'd argue the Linux kernel is a fair bit more complex, but that complexity is not shoved down to the people just trying to compile and use it... :(12:34
ikoniapseudonymous: that comment pretty much shows how silly you are12:35
pseudonymousOh? And why is that12:35
ikoniabecause it has nothing to do with anything and it's probably the most weak defense for why you can't setup a proper mail service12:35

ikoniapseudonymous: you can run an MTA in seconds, you can run a solid, MTA in a few minutes,12:37

pseudonymousLook up the whole OpenVPN vs WireGuard debacle going on right now for a corrollary.12:38
ikoniaagain, that has nothing to do with anything12:38
ikoniajust learn the required skills and gain the understanding12:38
tatertotsservers in general are not toys, ideally you would have a "seasoned" system engineer or admin in charge of configuring and maintaining email servers12:39
pseudonymousLook, we're not going to agree and you accusing me of stupidity is obviously not doing much to incline me to adopt your point of view. So let's just leave it.12:39
Jayantzteam, It started to show directories as well as files in them, But I am stil unable to create an image of the partition. While trying to copy any file manually, It again gives I/O device error12:40
ikoniapseudonymous no-one said you where stupid12:40
pseudonymousikonia: well, you did, actually. Silly has several connotations, none of them flattering, but among them is "weak in intellect" - Look up Webster's dictionary for an example.12:42
zteamJayant, so ddrescue didn't find the drive?12:42
ikoniapseudonymous: no, you just made a silly example to mirror your sityuation,12:42
pseudonymous".. how silly you are"12:42
pseudonymousThat's referring to the person, not the act12:42
ikoniaI don't care, either learn how to run a mail service, or don't12:42
ikoniarather than trying to "beat me"12:43
Jayantzteam, It shows the content before I ran ddrescue12:43
zteamJayant, I'm asking what ddrescue telled you?12:44
pseudonymousikonia: Not trying to, just pointing out that your tone is less than ideal, and that it would've been better to just refrain from further commenting rather than insult someone. At least the latter doesn't seem to jive with the philosophical underpinnings of this whole ubuntu thing.. Oh well12:46
ikoniapseudonymous: no-one tried to insult you, rather than try to make an issue and complain that something is too hard, when you don't seem to understand it, why not engage with someone who has experience and would be happy to try to explain it to you12:47
ikoniaas I would have done had you not tried to make stupid comparisions to compiling the kernel to justify it12:47
zteamJayant, Anyway, here is another tool you can try if you like http://www.roadkil.net/program.php/P29/Unstoppable%20Copier12:48
tatertotshi monchi12:49
pseudonymousikonia: It's a more apt comparison than you give it credit. The point is that the experience shouldn't be complex, the defaults should be ridiculously simple - and yet no configurability would be lost. That's exactly why the kernel is a decent example. While you can tweak every module, include and exclude others, enable/disable various introspective features and override schedulers, you can also just12:50
=== pavlushka_ is now known as pavlushka
pseudonymoususe the defaults.12:50
ikoniapseudonymous there is nothing valid about it12:50
zteamJayant, Be warned thought, if drive is already in bad shape, and your files are really important, you might want to send the drive to a data recovery company instead12:50
ikoniapseudonymous: the experience isn't complex if you understand the mail service and pay respect to the security side of things to stop another broken mail relay appearing on the internet12:50
tatertotsseen lots of people poorly configure email servers and wonder why their ISP keeps shutting them down and why they are blacklisted 3 or 4 times a month lol12:52
zteamJayant, because Unstoppable Copier will try over and over again, so if drive is in really bad shape it might hurt it further12:52
Jayantzteam, I am unable to execute ddrescue. Yes, some files are really important. But, There are 2-3 recovery professionals in my city and none of them is assuring anything12:53
pseudonymoustatertots: which exactly points out how bad the standard is, then. Because instead of designing a simpler set of protocols, security was patched on top and its proper implementation left as an exercise for the user. Throw in a smattering of bad documentation and hell ensues. (IMHO) :)12:54
ducassepseudonymous: postfix+dovecot is not hard to set up at all, as long as you have a faint idea of what you're doing.12:54
ikoniapseudonymous and again - that shows how silly you are with this12:54
ikoniapseudonymous: it's complex because it's not a toy,12:55
tatertotsthere are no assuring in the data recovery field.....you will pay if they recover %100 or %112:55
pseudonymousikonia: so when wireguard can be written as a viable, secure alternative to OpenVPN in 4000 lines of kernel-space code, it's a toy ?12:55
tatertotseither way you're paying regardless12:55
ikoniapseudonymous that has nothign to do with mail12:55
ikoniait's a totally different application and type of application12:55
ikoniaand stop referencing the kernel - it's nothing to do with "how to run a mail server"12:56
zteamJayant, you need to be more specific... what error message do you get? :-)12:56
Jayantzteam, I keep getting "[14312.013810] ses 17:0:0:1: Failed to bind enclosure -19" in dmesg logs. What is the meaning of enclosure here?12:56
ikoniait's just showing you don't understand how email works on the internet, which is fine, but the quicker you accept that and start to learn rather that trying to justify why someone should make it easier by totally redesigning email....the quicker you'll get running12:56
tatertotsdata recovery is expensive also...best practice with "important" data is back up early and back of often12:56
tatertotstypo....back up often12:57
zimbreshi, can someone please help me with my USB? It does not show in /media after plugin in.12:57
zimbresstrangely enough the mouse works fine on the same usb slot.12:57
zteamJayant, enclosure probably means the usb case (yes the usb-box is just a case)12:58
tatertotsJayant.....do you have back ups as part of your disaster recovery plan/procedure?12:58
thrasher88Hello, i have old HDD from my laptop with installed ubuntu on it but when i put it on external case can't boot from it...Any suggestions?12:58
=== nuke is now known as Guest59109
Jayanttatertots, Sadly no. :-(12:58
pseudonymousikonia: You're equating simple with being a toy. And if you read the design considerations of wireguard vs openvpn you'll learn that its simplicity is derived from not trying to support 200 scenarios of which 190 won't ever (or should never) be used. Such as a mailserver blindly relaying whatever w/o credentials.12:59
ikoniapseudonymous you're just spining your wheels12:59
zteamJayant, so you can try open up usb-case and connect the drive directly, you will probably void the warranty on the harddrive  that way but....12:59
ikoniapseudonymous: open relay is pretty common and useful for a lot of senarios, so again - perhaps not stating things that you don't know would help you get a better view point13:00
Jayantzteam, I didn't  understand. Do I have to open my laptop as well to connect it somewhere on the board or something else?13:00
pseudonymousikonia: Prey tell, what are these many scenarios ?13:01
ikoniapseudonymous internal relaying, mail hand off, which is pretty much how the internet email system works behind the public visible mail servers13:02

zteamJayant, no... a USB-harddrive is just a regular harddrive put inside a box (enclosoure / case) so if you unscrew that box you just get a regular harddrive13:03
ikoniadeepak: what is the actual problem (not readinging the ubuntuhangbook stuff) just explain the problem13:03
Jayantzteam, So after opening the case, I can still connect it via a USB cable?13:04

popeybecause he can't paste enough on irc13:05
pseudonymousikonia: and you're really just hammering home my point. This is the equivalent of using a default CPU or IO scheduler for the Linux kernel - certain usecases demand it, but it shouldn't be the default as most people just need a "safe", SSL-enabled setup with a reasonable set of supported, modern ciphers for auth. I shouldn't have to avoid screwing this up, the defaults should be sane.13:05
ikoniapseudonymous: nothing like it13:05
zteamJayant, yes, as long as you are not destroying the case in some ways :-)13:06
JayantOk, I'll try it13:06
deepaki installed Ubuntu 16.02 on my flash drive. But when i restart my ubuntu bootloader not working and directly load windos1013:07
zteamJayant, you can try that, or Unstoppable Copier13:07
ikoniadeepak: most probably, it's either not booting from the flash drive, or it's missing the bootloader on the flash drive, so defaults back to your windows disk to boot13:08

deepakSony Vaio13:08

zteamJayant, there is a guide on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRG3lzxA3Yo13:09
deepakBut i have followed the same steps mentioned on below link13:10
EriC^^ok, try that, or if you have a "browse for efi file" you can also use that to boot efi/ubuntu/grubx64.efi or shimx64.efi13:10

VarazirHello, I found that I can use wget -O filename url only problem is that I don't know the name of file name I'm downloading. It has the version number in the name13:12
EriC^^Varazir: you choose whatever filename you want13:12
ducasseJayant: if you connect to the usb inside the enclosure, you will still be going through the (probably cheap) converter electronics.13:12
Varazirexample "https://plex.tv/downloads/latest/1?channel=16&build=linux-ubuntu-x86_64&distro=ubuntu&X-Plex-Token=dsklfhjkldshf" ( changed the token) would give me plexmediaserver_1.0.0.2261-a17e99e_amd64.deb13:13
VarazirEriC^^: I know but I want the correct filename13:13
EriC^^Varazir: if you dont supply one i think wget will use the correct one13:13
VarazirEriC^^: -O needs a argument13:14
zteamJayant, I should have mentioned that, you need to open up your computer to connect the drive to it too.13:14
EriC^^Varazir: without -O maybe?13:15
VarazirEriC^^: if I don't use -O I get a file called 1?channel....13:15
zteamWell well, time to eat :-)13:15

NapoelonWould anyone know how to make the wireless adaptor the gateway in preference to a wired ethernet in U14.04?15:20
OmegaAWelp, there are seven options on the grub menu, might have to clean it up so I just have 'Ubuntu' and 'Windows'15:20
NapoelonNormally setting the metric of the wireless to be smaller than the ethernet, but (1) I think Ubuntu doesn't use that, (2) I can't find in the network config settings where to set it.15:22

az_what do you would select between ubuntu mate/kubuntu/xubuntu?16:25
mchelen2depends on your priorities16:26
mchelen2i like mate & xubuntu for simplicity16:27
efquesHello -- installation question. I'm installing in a system where I've already prepared a LUKS partition with lvm inside. The installer sees the mapped vg and is fine with setting the mapped volume to root. But I'm not sure if I should leave the LUKS partition as "do not use" (will it know where to look for the root volume inside?) or if I should use it as "physical vol for encryption" (it wants me to choose a password even though it's16:27
az_mainly stable then some nice look16:27
az_i have perty good pc, nvidia, 16GB ram, amd 6-core16:27
az_i had xubuntu, was good, after few years and some little problems after few upgrades i changed to ubuntu gnome16:27
mchelen2i think mate is more on the stability side, but kubuntu is prettier16:28
az_and ubuntu gnome is so unstable, after lock screen i have problem, addons gone from time to time too etc16:28
az_so much stability problems16:28
mchelen2i haven't really had problems with gnome, but ymmv16:28
az_i just don't want such problems, xfce was good in that16:28
mchelen2yeah xfce is pretty solid16:29
mchelen2so is mate16:29
az_i liked gnome 216:29
az_it was best ever, so nice16:29
mchelen2thats pretty much what mate is16:29
az_so maybe mate, if is stable16:30
mchelen2you can try a live usb to see how it looks16:30
az_mate looks so much like xfce16:30
az_i never liked kde but this last dont look bad16:30
mchelen2well its your call16:31
az_so you think that mate will be more stable that kubuntu?16:31
mchelen2i had more stability issues with kde in the past, but thats just my personal experience16:31
k1l_az_: yes16:31
az_i go then install ubuntu mate16:32
az_do you have some good solution for delete my old xfce/gnome files from /home dir ?16:32
az_i mean that all configs under .folder etc16:32
az_maybe there is some good way to clean that16:33
ducasseaz_: you need to do that manually.16:33
mchelen2i usually backup my home dir to network drive, then only restore the stuff i want16:33
az_i have 3 hdd16:33
az_1 ssd for ubuntu, 1 for home, 1 for windows :)16:33
mchelen2well to another hdd, whatever16:33
az_and usb 3.0 for backup16:33
az_so i just reinstall that ssd and keep my home16:34
mchelen2i like to use network drive but whatever you prefer16:34
mchelen2oh ok your /home is not on the ssd16:34
mchelen2i mean honestly you don't necessarily need to worry about it16:34
az_so it should be easy to reinstall16:34
mchelen2those files wont dont anything bad16:34
az_this ubuntu mate looks so much like xfce16:35
mchelen2yeah its similar default config but its different code under the hood16:35

BluesKajriqj,  try to get to a vt/tty, then update and upgrade18:07
riqjSchrodingersScat, if you mean the built-in backup of Ubuntu, I dont use it, but do my own backups. if you mean restoring from a backup, I can maybe login to my home folder via live cd/usb and back up before running fsck18:07
ducasseriqj: no, you nee18:07
riqjBluesKaj, sorry what is vt/tty ?18:07

riqjducasse, ok18:09
BluesKajriqj,  think ducasse is correct, fsck has to be looked after first18:09
EonUmbreonCause I have noticed hybrid boot causes me fs issues due to hibernation state18:09
riqjk1l_ no, I dont understand. I didnt get this error before18:10
k1l_riqj: if the FileSystem is in a bad state and needs a fsck you cant work around that.18:10
riqjand it doesnt explain in the error, just says emergency state18:10
ducasseriqj: if you are really nervous, you can clone first, but if you have backups i don't see what you're worried about.18:10
k1l_riqj: if you are scared to dataloss: then make a "dd" image of that partition. and try to work on that image instead18:11
riqjducasse, ok, fine, I will go with fsck18:11

riqjbut again, is this here the solution to the problem, the one posted in the first reply: https://is.gd/FDzaFI ?18:13
riqjsudo -i, fdisk -l and then umount /dev/sdb1, fsck -y /dev/sdb1, and reboot ?18:13
EonUmbreonwget -r -U mozilla <index page here> might do it18:13
EonUmbreonUnsure. I just googled it. !wget18:14
ducasseriqj: well, just use the right device name in those commands.18:14

akikkaosu: yes nvidia is using dkms18:32
kaosuBy design secure boot will not allow any unsigned third-party drivers to run, period. Since you are basically rebuilding the kernel module on your own machine, that module is not signed and won't boot.18:32
kaosuSo, while mokutils believes secure boot is enabled (which I am sure it is), it is not being enforced for some reason.18:33

kaosuI'm not sure why Ubuntu wants to disable secure boot. It would be trivial to create a script to automatically sign specific drivers and import that new signature into your database. That's a far better solution than just disabling it.18:36
ducasseakik: boot shimx64.efi, not grubx64.efi, basically. the shim enforces sb and loads grub.18:37
