batterynacc: i did it with ‘sudo apt-get update’.  :)00:00
chasinglogicbattery: yeah apt-get update / upgrade will do that00:00
tortibnacc, hello again.  It was actually my USB switch, which has been working in windows and OS X.00:00
batterythanks chasinglogic and nacc00:00
OerHekshammer25, let windows10 make free space on your drive, then start the installer again.00:01
hammer25OerHeks: how do i do that? I have a sizable partition that is currently unallocated that I was trying to use for linux00:03
nacctortib: iirc (and i easily might be wrong) some usb devices that work well in other OSes don't work well in Linux. the other OSes intentinally ignore certain specs because they know they need to :)00:03
OerHeksoh oke, that will be fine.00:03
nacctortib: you *could* try to use the latest mainline and see if it's any different00:03
naccor see if there are any bugs about it already00:03
tortibnacc, okay how do I install it?00:04
nacc!mainline | tortib00:04
ubottutortib: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds00:04
nacctortib: but keep in mind, that is *only* for testing00:04
OerHekshammer25, make sure you have disabled fastboot, that could prevent installation too.00:04
tortibnacc, what about if it fixes the problem?00:04
tortibthen what do I do?00:04
nacctortib: stay on the ubuntu kernel even if mainline fixes it, and file a bug (or see if there is already one filed)00:04
OerHeks* as such empty disk during installation00:04
nacctortib: otherwise, you arent' getting security updates, etc. for the kernel00:04
nacctortib: also those mainline builds are purely for testing, no support, etc.00:05
hammer25OerHeks: I couldn't find the option in the boot menu to turn that off. I turned off fast startup in Windows, is that the same?00:05
nacctortib: have you already tried some quick googling if it's a known issue with that device?00:05
OerHekshammer25, correct, is is set in windows00:05
tortibnacc, I did and some people that were on 3.10 on Arch had the same problem, it's just a USB3 Hub00:05
tortibthey didn't mention they were using a switch00:05
nacctortib: hrm, ok00:05
nacctortib: are you sure you've not go ttoo many devices plugged in?00:06
nacctortib: sometimes, hubs can end up messing things up if the draw is too heavy00:06
nacctortib: and windows/osx workaround that (aiui)00:06
tortibnacc, it's a 7 port hub and only 5 devices are plugged in, plus it's powered by a AC adapter.00:06
hammer25OerHeks: alright, its already off :/ should I do something to the partition? All I did was shrink the main windows partition to make room, nothing more00:06
nacctortib: linux is generally less forgiving00:06
nacctortib: hrm, ok00:06
OerHekssudo parted /dev/sda print00:06
hammer25OerHeks: Was that sudo parted thing directed at me? Where would I type that?00:09
OerHeksoh, you can use that only in the live environment, not during install.00:10
OerHeksi look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GraphicalInstall#Installation_type and this option should be oke for you. just choose alongside.00:11

l0bThat's what I want to do. I have a Freestyle2 keyboard I want to use with Ubuntu. It has custom shortcut keys like "Cut" and "Undo" that I'd like to map to their key combo equivalents because they don't work out of the box00:38
l0bThey keyboard shows up correctly under xinput list00:38
l0bBut that's as far as I've gotten. For some reason the numeric keypress ID of these buttons is almost all the same00:39
l0bI also looked at the xkb config file, but I don't know how these custom keys would fit under their notation such as <AE12>00:41
l0bYeah, all those buttons share two keycodes00:42
l0bWould it be even possible to map them then? There are 9 buttons, 4 with keycode 50 and five with keycode 5200:42

sirriffsalotpushpop, are you in the OS itself and able to use a graphical user interface?02:45
pushpopYes, currently using it.02:46
sirriffsalotpushpop, in that case, run $ update-manager in terminal, go to additional drivers and select the one you had before and click apply02:46
sirriffsalotpushpop, did you reboot before trying the new ones though?02:46
pushpopsirriffsalot, just did that doesn't list anything related to the video card in additional drivers.02:48
=== hydroponx is now known as Hydr0p0nX
samwilliamsirriffsalot: you can use htop or iotop to check if there is any operation running in your system.03:01
kaosupushpop: You just need to remove the package for the new video card drivers. As long as you didn't remove the default driver's package, Ubuntu will automatically use it upon removing any third-party packages.03:01

EriC^^his name was Eric?05:22
dharmatrippy hunh05:22
dharmaso i should save this in case my other flash drive is giving me problems05:25
dharmaso maybe the trick is just doing all the mounting and unmounting from the terminal where i have root?05:27
EriC^^dharma: you could do that, but if you want to copy files in the file manager you'd need to start it as root05:27
EriC^^if you have gksu installed you can do gksu nautilus05:28
dharmai don't understand any of that... i know i should give up on linux but i have no choice right now05:28
dharmai need to hire someone from the LUG :)05:28

dont-panicAl3x_10m: For those TapButton's, 1 = left, 2 = middle, 3 = right.  The number after the = sign is how many fingers you want to use.  So TapButton2=3 means that 3 fingers tapping the touch pad do a middle click, or paste buffer.06:24

B0R3Ddont-panic i can't remember :X06:27
B0R3Dis it possible to check which virtuallization?06:27
dont-panicB0R3D: the fact that its throwing a kernel error, its probably openvz06:28
B0R3Ddont-panic i connected to the panel it says ovz seems like openvz right?06:28
dont-panicif its not more than like 12 bucks a month, you have openvz06:28

varikonniemiwhen it is running for a long time it shows wildly different utilization than virtualbox actually uses06:29
B0R3Dso vmware won't work as well?06:29
B0R3Dwhich kind of server i need to rent?06:30
dont-panicno, openvz is basically a chroot with less underlying access06:30

dont-panicthat's gonna be an expensive vm06:33
B0R3Ddont-panic so it's better just buying few vps of windows?06:33
dont-panicwhy not just build a box, install linux and then virtualbox and your vms?06:33
dont-panicdepends on what you're using them for06:34
B0R3Dwhat do you mean build a  box and install linux?06:34

Atlantic778bazhang: I can say that I am experienced user, and I really did put effort into researching state of this bug. The problem is that many tried to fix it and there is still no working solution so I didn't even try to make solution myself. I don't feel like I will make some progress on this. It bugs me that there is so many users affected and this hits me wherever I turn.08:45

netcrimeHey can you recommend Supervisor alternative for Python 3?09:14
leonarthI can't find any guide with best practices to setup a binary to run as a service09:35
leonarthmay you guys recommend me something?09:36
sudo_suset path09:36
sudo_suto the binary09:37
sudo_su* folder containing binary09:38
leonarthI was thinking about something like this:09:41
leonarth- create a user for the binary09:41
leonarth- put the binary in /usr/local/binary09:41
leonarth- put the .conf in /etc/binary09:41
leonarth- give access to the binary only that system user09:41
leonarth- setup somehow a service script to control service binary start/stop/status09:41
sudo_suIn order for that to act as a service you need to decide port_no and other stuff and entry in /etc/services09:46
sudo_sufor that09:46
hateballleonarth: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemdForUpstartUsers09:47
Triffid_Huntersudo_su: /etc/services is only for naming ports by name, don't need to touch it unless you want iptables et al to spit out myservice instead of 4137 for port number09:48
Triffid_Hunterleonarth: yeah basically that's the procedure, you can use setsid blah & to daemonize something that doesn't daemonize itself.. not all daemons want to run under drop privs too, some need to stay root, something to keep in mind before you go creating users09:50

DulcinHi I am trying to lrunzip a large sql backup, previous backups unzip just fine, but this one keeps freezing up ubuntu, cant switch shell, mouse and keyboard unresponsive. I tried it 4 times now after rebooting/updates/checking disk space/leaving 'top' open. I noticed during the last freeze that lrunzip was using 200% CPU when it froze.10:05
DulcinI dont think its doing anything because yesterday I waited a couple of hours and after the reboot there was a 0 byte file from the unzipping10:05
Triffid_HunterDulcin: sounds like you're running out of ram and swapping hard, try on a machine with more ram. alternatively you have a hardware fault where the CPU is allowed to overheat10:06
craptalkBen64: little stupid mistake, thank you10:06
YankDownUnderDulcin: clean out the /tmp and /var/tmp, try again...have you tried that route yet?10:06
craptalkBen64: i was inside of its folder instead10:06
DulcinYankDownUnder: No I havent10:07
craptalkBen64: then try to delete it from the inside, cant seem to work, cause the command rm i use needed to include the path folder10:07

netoI have a Toshiba SatelitePro R50-B-119 with Windows 7 installed.14:04
netoI am iterested to install in dual boot configuration the new Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.14:04
netoBut I could not be able to install the Ubuntu from a DVD or a PEN, and I discover that the possible reason is the computer do not have a BIOS but a UEFI, and to get the installation I have to make changes in the UEFI ( F2, Security, Safe Boot, Avanced, System Configuration, Change boot from UEFI to CSM, F10) and then try to start the installation.14:04
netoHowever, before, I have some questions:14:04
netoa) If I succed to have a good installation with Ubuntu 16.04 I will lose acess to WIN 7 with the CSM boot mode?14:04
netob) Can I run Ubuntu 16.04 with UEFI safe mode?14:04

lyzeGreenPearls, Ahh. I guess you'd choose a programming language first. Maybe python is a great language for you since it's pretty easy to learn, powerful and can create lots of different apps including games and stuff.14:49
GreenPearlsAs If I understand what a wrapper is .. I'm zero knowledge  but I'm a good learner14:49
lyzeBut you'd need to look around and try stuff out14:49
EriC^^maddawg2: yes it is, try sudo iptables -S14:49
lyzeGreenPearls, There a great online tutorials, even complete websites which are dedicated to help people with programming. (Can't recommend you one though)14:50

BluesKajGreenPearls,  do you understand?15:10
EriC^^Narta: found it https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DerivativeDistroHowto15:10
tme5and Ubuntu is an OS that uses Linux15:10
GreenPearlsYes its same like windows 7 and xp15:10
debidiin that case what I would do is debootstrap a minimal ubuntu or debian system and add what I need using apt/dpkg15:10

Palm_premiummaddawg2: You do have a working internet connection on that machine? Also when you try to connect too the webinterface/ssh are you on the same network or is there a firewall in between (, this might be the case on large company/organization networks).15:15

maddawg2Palm_premium, i'm checking now.. sorry it's taking awhile i'm having to use the vm console15:25
maddawg2this ubuntu machine is on a home network so now firewall really between them (other than router) but all local traffic is allowed15:25
maddawg2and interestingly if i do ubuntu 14.04 and install the same packages they all work no problme15:26
maddawg2even ssh15:26
maddawg2important to note that this is a fresh install too15:26
EriC^^maddawg2: maybe it's a systemd thing?15:27
EriC^^the init system15:27
maddawg2well the services work from localhost15:27
maddawg2like if i ssh into localhost works fine15:27
maddawg2and web interfaces all work via localhost15:28
EriC^^does something depend on the conventional eth0 naming?15:28
maddawg2it's a fresh install15:28
maddawg2and all i did was sudo apt-get install openssh-server15:28
maddawg2that was the first thing i did and that didnt work15:28
EriC^^try a simple server15:28
naccmaddawg2: you just said ssh into localhost works fine? so openssh-server works, afaict?15:28
EriC^^nc -lvp 909015:29
maddawg2from localhost nacc15:29
maddawg2but not from other machines15:29

yeticryhow can i fix that?15:29
naccmaddawg2: ah ok, but still, i think that means openssh-server installed fine (otherwise ssh localhost also would fail)15:29
NartaHow to install remastersys?15:29
maddawg2yes as do i'15:29
naccmaddawg2: nothing relevant in the logs? (sorry had to reboot a second ago)15:30

maddawg2literally nothing from another machine works15:37
Palm_premiummaddawg2: can you disable ufw/iptables?15:37
maddawg2tried that too15:38
maddawg2it worked after a reboot15:38
maddawg2but then it stgopped working suddenly15:38
yeticryany error in apache2's error.log?15:38
maddawg2give me a minute15:39
naccthat seems highly suspect -- that it works and then stops working (randomly). Is your cable loose? :)15:39
maddawg2based on the symptoms i really think it's firewall related.. i mean al lservices work exactly as they should15:39
maddawg2nacc if that were the case then all my VMs wouldnt work15:39
maddawg2and i wouldnt be able to get to my VM15:39
maddawg2it's a vm guest on a vmware esxi server with 8 other guests15:40
maddawg2and i can ping the machine fine15:40
naccmaddawg2: i don't believe you said that before; not sure how I would have known that15:40
maddawg2i sent a screenshot15:40
naccmaddawg2: so of 9 guests, 1 fails?15:40
Palm_premiummaddawg2: i take it you alread tried to open the port using ufw? "sudo ufw allow <PORT>", port 80 443 and 22 should be open15:40
maddawg2and the only one running 16.0415:40
maddawg2i even created a new VM of ubuntu 14.04 since i had an ISO for it15:40
maddawg2installed everything no issue15:40
maddawg2and loaded everything no issue15:40
maddawg2Palm_premium, yea i did that15:41
naccmaddawg2: can the host access the guest (over ssh)?15:41
maddawg2if i do sudo ufw show15:41
maddawg2it shows all the poprts i specified as allow from anywhere15:41
maddawg2what do you mean?15:41
Palm_premiummaddawg2: It seems unlikely, but it could also be the outgoing firewall on your client15:41
maddawg2my client?15:41
maddawg2has no firewall15:42
naccmaddawg2: i've never used vmware, but in a kvm hosting environment, presuming your guests have routable IPs, i can ssh from the host to the guest15:42
maddawg2and it doesnt work from any of my linux machines15:42
maddawg2nacc yes i can do that but not to the machine in question15:42
maddawg2connection is refused15:42
maddawg2i can however ssh into all other linux machines on my vm15:42

maddawg2connection is refused15:43
maddawg2Palm_premium, no such thing in vmware esxi15:43
maddawg2it's all bridgred15:43
maddawg2vmware esxi isnt capable of nat15:43
maddawg2the guest gets an ip from my router15:44
maddawg2i can get to the internet15:44
Palm_premiummaddawg2: awesome, that caused me heaps of trouble in the past.15:44
maddawg2i can access all network resources from guest15:44
maddawg2but none of my other drevices can access that guest15:44
maddawg2tho the guest responds to pings15:44
maddawg2i mean have my home NFS mounted on the guest right now15:44
maddawg2and thats a whole seperate device15:45
naccmaddawg2: two NICs in the guest?15:47
maddawg2just one15:47

Xinskim the change logs of 15 and 1615:52
maddawg2i did15:52
naccmaddawg2: have you tried installing 14.04 on the exact same VM?15:52
maddawg2and nothing about firewall15:52
maddawg2nacc yep15:52
EriC^^Xin: his problem is intermittent though15:52
maddawg2no issue15:52
maddawg2no it was intermitten ONCE15:52
naccmaddawg2: does it work on every reboot?15:52
EriC^^"a restart fixed it, then suddenly"15:52
maddawg2yes that one time it fixed15:52
maddawg2then all of the sudden it stopped15:53
maddawg2and never worked again after15:53
maddawg2despite the firewall rules being the exact same15:53
EriC^^maddawg2: well you haven't been very cooperative with us15:53
Xindo a clean install of ubuntu server mini.iso15:53
maddawg2what do you mean?15:53
* nacc blames vmware and walks away :)15:53

maddawg2i've been very cooperative15:53

EriC^^maddawg2: did you check /var/log/syslog and /var/log/auth.log?15:53
maddawg2nothing in them from remote connections15:54
maddawg2i'd paste them if i could ssh in15:54
naccmaddawg2: you don't have console to your VM?15:54
EriC^^can you ping the ip?15:54
maddawg2i do15:54
maddawg2but cant copy and paste from a vm console15:54
naccmaddawg2: that sounds like a bad console.15:54
maddawg2EriC^^, yes pinging works fine15:54
maddawg2no vmware server can do that15:54
* nacc returns to blaming vmware and walking further away15:55
maddawg2there is no copy and paste on a vmserver cuz your client doesnt pass clipboard15:55
EriC^^maybe vmware has some firewall of it's own or something?15:55
maddawg2no firewall in vmware esxi15:55
maddawg2it's simply passive15:55
maddawg2the host doresnt even have the ability to NAT or assign IP addresses15:55
maddawg2it attaches EVERYTHING to your own router15:55
maddawg2and passes it through just like a physical PC15:56
maddawg2i can ping the guest15:56
maddawg2and the guest can access all my home srervers and my synology is working fine on it15:56
maddawg2but connecting to the guest from any machine is refused15:56
maddawg2i am going to do a fresh install right now and try all over again15:56
therealtbelubuntu install, my monitor keeps turning off after some time (10 minutes?)   how do I disable this ?15:57
EriC^^maddawg2: try nc for a sec15:57
therealtbeI have already disabled DPMS and it still turns off the monitor15:57
therealtbewhy is it turning off the monitor15:57
EriC^^it's a simple test to see if you can connect15:58
maddawg2EriC^^, just a sec firing up my machine again15:58
maddawg2i reset ufw to default config15:58
yeticryor just sudo apt-get purge ufw?15:58
maddawg2well i dont want to dump that as i do want a firewall eventually15:59
ioriatherealtbe, are you forced to reboot  it or what ?15:59
maddawg2it'd be bad not to have any15:59
therealtbeioria:  no, after 10 minutes of inactivity the monitor powers off,  if I move the mouse or keyboard it wakes back up16:00
maddawg2EriC^^, whats the nc command you want me to try?16:00
EriC^^maddawg2: nc -lvp 909016:00
maddawg2from another PC right?16:00
EriC^^on the host, and nc <ip> 9090 on the client that's trying to connect16:00
ioriatherealtbe,  ctrl + alt + L  , gives you same effect ?16:00
therealtbeioria:   xset -q   says DPMS is disabled    http://paste.ubuntu.com/18711021/16:00

therealtbeioria:  it is a kiosk and all ctrl+alt keymappings have been disabled...16:01
nacctherealtbe: maybe check under settings -> power (at least on ubuntu gnome, not sure generally) to see if a blank screen timeout is turned on?16:02
ioriatherealtbe,  idk then .  i had big issues with light-locker and light-locker-settings  on lubuntu16:02
therealtbenacc:  it is lubuntu and there is no such thing.  is that controled by a config file somewhere that I can look?16:02
maddawg2nacc just flashing cursor from client right now16:03
maddawg2think it's gonna refuse16:03
nacctherealtbe: it'd be DM/DE specific, i think16:03
maddawg2no error yet16:03
therealtbenacc nacc:   I see from xset that it says Screen saver   prefer blanking:  yes16:03
EriC^^maddawg2: on the host it said it's listening fine16:03
Palm_premiummaddawg2: I wish you the best of luck with this very interesting pain in the arse problem, but I am signing off.16:03
nacctherealtbe: hrm, i guess that could be it, and would probably related to what ioria said about lightlocker?16:04
maddawg2EriC^^, actually the host shows that it accepted it16:04
maddawg2shows the IP of the machine i'm connecting from16:04
EriC^^maddawg2: nice16:04
maddawg2so that worked16:04
maddawg2wtf is up with the other stuff tho16:04
ioriatherealtbe,  light-locker should be installed by default on lubuntu 16.04 ---- dpkg -l light-locker ?16:04
maddawg2so strange16:04
EriC^^ok, so it's an ssh/apache config issue16:04
therealtbeioria:  nacc   I have completely purged lightlocker from the system16:04
maddawg2and webmin16:04
maddawg2and plex?16:04
maddawg2and every other remote service?16:04
EriC^^maddawg2: try sudo service ssh stop16:05
ioriatherealtbe,  dpkg -l gnome-screensaver16:05
EriC^^then sudo nc -lvp 2216:05
EriC^^to see if it's port specific16:05
therealtbeioria:  nacc sorry 14.04 LTS  I should have mentioned.   I removed lightlocker.    I have set   xset s off    to disable screensaver, and xset -dpms  to disable dpms.16:05
maddawg2no it accepted it16:06
therealtbeioria:  nacc    removing gnome-screensaver now16:06
ioriatherealtbe,  have you installed other  screensaver  , like xscreensaver ?16:07

Mirindainstall compiz17:06
Mirindahotstar is an android app !17:07
Mirindafor online Indian television channels17:08
nacctortib: quick cursory reading implies that compiz isn't compatible with gnome3 (there is its own compositing manager in gnome3 (mutter?))17:09
MirindaBtw how do I build a package ?17:09
wingerHey guys, I've a bit of questions about Ubuntu executables. I've heard that Ubuntu sees the first few bytes to determine the type of it. Why are the executables compiled by me shown as a shared lib in Ubuntu GUI file manager? It can't even execute from file manager (Says no application for this) but runs fine from terminal.17:10
naccMirinda: that's a very general question, `dpkg-buildpackage` or `debuild`.17:10
naccwinger: the first statement is a Linux statement, not an Ubuntu-specific one, btw.17:11
popeywinger: depends how you built it17:12
naccwinger: what is an "executable" in this context? what did you build?17:12
nacctortib: you could try installing compizconfig-settings-manager, though17:13
tortibnacc, ty17:14
wingernacc: Yeah that was a typo. It's just a hello world program built using the Rust compiler. "file test" shows that it's an ELF 64-bit shared object, x86-64 version 1. But when I right click and see the properties, it shows an application/x-sharedlib. I'm totally new to linux so please bear with me :)17:14
tortibnacc, wouldn't i have to use compiz as the window manager then?17:15
tortibnacc, can I do that in gnome3 classic?17:15
nacctortib: i'm genuinely not sure :)17:15
tortibnacc, i'm having a problem with lightdm17:15
naccwinger: it says "shared object" or "ELF... executable" when you run `file` ?17:15
tortibsomething in my home dir is causing lightdm to show a black screen when I boot up, I have to switch to a tty and then back to lightdm in order to see the login screen.  Then when I login it takes a long long time to bring the desktop up, almost 5min.17:15
naccwinger: if it says "shared object", then both `file` and the file manager are agreeing17:16
MirindaIs unity 2d available for 16.04 ?17:16

naccMirinda: well, unsupported, rather17:16
DArqueBishopnacc: admittedly, I'd like to see Unity 2D still be supported, as the current version of Unity won't work with X2Go.17:16
wingernacc: Why doesn't it run normally when I double click it tho?17:17
winger"There is no application installed for “shared library” files."17:17
naccDArqueBishop: is there a bug filed? :)17:17
=== AzureStigma is now known as Surfer
naccwinger: because it's not an executable (if `file` outputted what you said)17:17

MirindaWere there any reported issues with it ?17:21
naccMirinda: i don't know17:22
DArqueBishopnacc: from what I'm reading, it's Unity's hardware acceleration requirement that prevents X2Go from using it properly.17:22
tortibnacc, any idea?17:22
tortibnacc, I got disconnected17:22

CountryfiedLinuxHow do I remove all the lenses at the bottom of the menu?17:22
naccDArqueBishop: ah, i guess i could see that17:22
naccwinger: if you want some further help, maybe pastebin `file path/to/executable` and evidence that `./path/to/exeuctable` launches it17:23
nacctortib: sorry not really; sounds abnormal. Could you try creating a new user and seeing if it happens to that user?17:23
tortibnacc, with a new user it doesn't happen, it's something in my home dir, I've cleared out the cache and it still does it.17:24
nacctortib: clearing out what cache?17:25
tortibnacc, ~/.cache17:25
=== precise is now known as precise|afk
nacctortib: i would assume it's a config (so in .config) rather than a .cache value; but hard to say. You could try `mv ~/.config ~/.config.bak` as a test and see if it helps?17:25
wingernacc: Properties: http://prntscr.com/bq157q    file path and ./path: http://prntscr.com/bq152v17:28
tortibnacc, fixed it! :D17:28
naccwinger: yeah, so a normal executable (as understood by the GUI stuff, I assume too) is a "executable" to `file`17:28
wetwipesnacc, thanks17:29
naccwinger: i assume this is something rust does, which i don't know much about17:29
tortibnacc, still one more problem, when I log out I get a blank screen and I have to switch to a tty then back to lightdm to get a login screen.17:29
wingerI see. Thanks for the help nacc, I'll ask them17:29
nacctortib: note you might have lost some of your configuration bits, which are now ~/.config.bak ... so you could try to restore bit-by-bit. Or just ignore it if you didn't have much customziation17:29

naccsoee: `cp -R /path/to/folder1 /path/to/folder2` ? But read the manpage to know what to specify for both paths18:24
naccfreecoder_: ^518:25
DArqueBishopnacc, I'd actually use -a instead of -R, because it preserves permissions, etc. as best as possible when copying.18:25
naccDArqueBishop: good point, i hit backspace one too many times (i use -a as well)18:26
freecoder_agree. -a seems a very good option. wonder i have never used it before18:26
DArqueBishopHacker432: I guess my questions go to you. Where do you want the new partition to be mounted, and what permissions were you expecting them to have?18:28
Hacker432I don't know which mount point I can use, the important think for me is that I have free access as for /home mount point and if I need higher permission I run sudo18:31

jon5000hello.  I was just in the middle of upgrading my lenovo yoga 13 fom 14.04 to 15.10.  At the point of package installation, I unplugged my phone from the usb, and it crashed.  now I cant boot.  what comes up is [FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules, and then a bunch of other [OK] lines then finally "Starting Show Plymouth Boot Screen..." at which point it hangs.  HELP!18:49

naccjon5000: why would you upgrade 14.04 to 15.10?18:53
jon5000nacc: I am asking myself the same thing.  I figured it would be better.  I was having some trouble with xinput, mouse and trackpad, which as intermittent, and not easy to solve.  so I figured maybe there was improvement.  in any event, what should I do now18:55
nacc!ltsupgrade | jon500018:56
ubottujon5000: Users of 14.04 LTS will be offered the automatic upgrade when 16.04.1 LTS is released, which is scheduled for July 21st.18:56
naccjon5000: ideally, you would have waited a few weeks :)18:57
jon5000nacc: ideally I ould have.  I did not know.18:57
naccjon5000: how did you upgrade? you probably need to fix/finish the upgrade process that was interrupted during the upgrade.18:57
jon5000nacc: I would like to do that but it is now not booting into anything18:57
naccjon5000: how did you upgrade?18:58
jon5000nacc: via the native upgrade software18:58
naccjon5000: the native upgrade software would not have (by default) upgraded 14.04 -> 15.10, aiui18:59
naccjon5000: did you check a box about development releases?18:59
jon5000nacc: yes18:59
=== Kenrinx is now known as kenrin
jon5000nacc: now it is not booting into anything at all.18:59
naccjon5000: i (or someone) will try and help -- but i think it's importnat to recognize, you opted for a development release, and something went wrong (which can ahppen with development releases, even if that isn't the case in your situation). If you were/are unable to figure that out, then you should not (IMO) have opted for development releases...19:01
naccjon5000: my guess is you'll need to boot a live USB or CD and repair your system19:01
jon5000nacc: thanks for the info on how i fucked up19:01

andrejwho do I talk to about installation discrepancies between 14.04 and 16.04, and 16.04 CD install vs netboot? I've been here griping about 16.04 netboot leaving a successfuly installed low-end server class machine (Dell R320) unable to boot (works fine installed from CD). Now I have the same problem with a small SuperMicro. Netinst works in 2 of 4 scenarios for me, and I need to find out how to make it "just work".19:43
andrejIs it worth logging a bug?19:43
BeArDeDRaDiCaLI cant add ppas what shoulo i do ?19:45
andrejI have a sneaky suspicion that it somehow has to do w/ UEFI, because the machines I can get it to work on are VMware and Soekris, both of which have no UEFI support. The R320 *can*, but it's rendered ubootable regardless of whether it's turned on or not. Same for the SuperMicro ...19:46
andrejBeArDeDRaDiCaL - what do you mean?19:46
andrejand 14.04 works fine on all four types via netinstall, btw.19:47

jon5000hello I was trying to upgrade from 14.04 to 15.10 (don't lecture me please) and the upgrade was interrupted.  Now I cannot boot into any OS.  However, I can get into grub and a command prompt.  This is a lenovo laptop.21:19
danny_Is Org-mode worth it?  E-macs seems arcane and heavy for only using org-mode and I'm still not exactly certain what it does so well21:20
tgm4883jon5000: bummer21:30
Bashing-omjon5000: Mind ya, no telling yet how messed up the system is .. But, might try and see if you can explicitly boot the system from that grub > prompt ???21:30
tgm4883Bashing-om: +121:30
jon5000Bashing-om: I can get into a Lenovo tty1 prompt...  it says jon@Lenovo:~$21:31
naccjon5000: how are you at a command prompt if you are not in an OS?21:32
jon5000Bashing-om:  how do you recommend I try to explicitly boot?21:32
Bashing-omjon5000: Well, that is a good thing .. maybe things are not helpless . What results when logging into the system here ? ( maybe all you have is a broken proprietary graphic's driver, ??)21:33
jon5000nacc: maybe I am.  During boot, I press escape and i get a grub menu one of which is advanced options, where i choose one of the linux options in the list, then it asks me to login, which i can21:33
naccjon5000: right, so you're in an OS...21:33
=== phil is now known as Guest8363
* tgm4883 smacks head21:34
naccjon5000: so as Bashing-om said you probably have busted graphics or an incomplete upgrade (most likely)21:34
naccjon5000: so i think someone told you how to fix that ( OerHeks ?) earlier21:34
naccjon5000: dpkg-configure -a; then follow that website's guide for finishing an interrupted upgrade21:34
jon5000nacc: Bashing-om it was an incomplete upgrade.  i pulled my usb phone out while it was installing packages and it crashed.21:34

DArqueBishopjon5000: my best advice would be to use a live CD to back up your data, then blow out the old OS and rebuild from scratch (preferably with 16.04 if you need to upgrade).21:36
jon5000DArqueBishop: thanks.  might do that eventually.  right now dpkg --configure -a is doing alot of stuff21:38
=== ben_r_ is now known as ben_r
jon5000nacc: Bashing-om: while this dpkg command is running through many lines of setting up and installing, i looked at that webpage.  looks like i will need to acccess repositories.  earlier today, before i got this far, it was determined that i did not have network capability (ping didnt work).  is it possible that all this dpkg work that it is going through will result in me having wifi access?21:42
naccjon5000: you didn't have networking your broken system? i'd say that's an invalid test, let the upgrade finish and then check21:42
jon5000nacc: thank you that is what i was hoping you would say.  ok.  so this dpkg is completing the update then?  that made me happy.21:43
OerHeksno, run updates again !...21:43
naccjon5000: it's doing the first part, you'll still need to finish the rest of it21:43
naccjon5000: it's only finishing any interrupted package installations; you still need to do the update, etc21:43
Bashing-omjon5000: ^^ as nacc says . let the fixes run and see .. By the way . no wired connection available ???21:44
OerHeksmaybe with the -f option, not sure.21:44
jon5000ok, so now just finished all that and could not hit the repository21:44
jon5000apt-get did not work21:44
naccthere's a reaonably good chance you'd need to reboot now that dpkg has finished ... not sure?21:44

blibIs there a way to tell ubunt to assign a particular device to /dev/ttyACMx?21:52
jon5000_nacc: Bashing-om I think part of my problem may be that when apt-get update finished it said something about missing "resolveconf"  then this was mentioned again when apt-get upgrade seemed to fail.21:53
naccjon5000_: not sure it's worth trying to repair your system, I would probably just reinstall unless you have some critical data you need to keep. I unfortunately need to step away for a bit, hopefully someone else can help you out21:54
jon5000_do you think at this point i might be able to boot into a gui?21:54
jon5000_nacc: thanks.21:55
Bashing-omjon5000_: Will not hurt to try to boot to the GUI .. mabe also see what results when starting the GUI from terminal ?21:56
jon5000_Bashing-om: how do i start gui from terminal21:57
jon5000_Bashing-om: great success... i am in the gui21:58
Bashing-omjon5000_: What is the DE here ? That command depends on the display manager installed .21:58
jon5000_Bashing-om: well maybe not so great.  no mouse control.  x session does not have launcher21:58
k1l_startx might have just changed all xorg files to root now21:58

kingsleyHi. The "ls" command and file system browser say a certain file exists, and is executable. Why would I get the error "No such file or directory." when I try to run it on a so called "Try Ubuntu" (live USB iso) of version 16.04?22:12

on3pkHey guys, how stupid would it be to run a Squid server on a system with only 2gb of ram?22:47
debidii'd image 2g to be plenty22:50
debidiassuming there aren't any major competitors22:50
* debidi loos @ u, kde22:51
on3pkwhat do you mean by competitors?22:51
on3pkoh, like kde...22:51
debidiother processing hogging memory22:51
daxother things that need memory22:51
on3pkNo, I think it could very well run by itself22:52
debidialso consider how many simultaenous clients are going to be accessing the proxy22:53
on3pkI don't know how many.  Probably not more than a half dozen or so at most.22:53
on3pkThe thing is, it needs to be entirely transparent.  So, with the exception of telling the client "this is your gateway/ip/whatever" there shouldn't be anything else that happens22:54
dax2GB should be plenty.22:55
PughoHello, I'm using ubuntu 15.10 and currenty Win7 in VirtualBox from time to time. But now I need graphics power on Win7 and read, that for virtualisation and PCI-Passthrough the choice might be KVM(?). If I want to have ubuntu stay my primary system but wanna start a Win7 on a second monitor "from time to time" am I right to read more about KVM or should I follow the experimental feature in VirtualBox? Just need a direction on how to continue for achieving23:00
Pughomy task :-) Thank you23:00
jon5000_Bashing-om: everything seems to look pretty good. i am ready to upgrade to 16.04.  how do i get that?23:01
debidipush ur hardware to its full potential, trial n error - inspirational quotes aside, how about xen ?23:02
PughoI just started to read some articles and watched some youtube videos to get a quick overview, but before spending too much time going to far into kvm or xen and end up going the other way, just thought to ask what might be better23:03
chasinglogicAnyone know why there isn't any ubuntu snappy images for 16.04?23:04
=== milos is now known as Guest39502
Bashing-omjon5000_: In update-manager make sure is set to "normal" and let the update manager do it's thing again . -- BUT make sure that 15.10 is fully updated and upgraded prior to proceeding . No PPA active, no Proprietary drivers, no screen saver .23:06
Bashing-omchasinglogic: There are a few, more comming : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2327088 .23:07
jon5000_Bashing-om: thanks.  i have that all set.  it is not showing a 16.04 update23:07
u0_a1hello room23:07
jon5000_Bashing-om: nevermind.  there it is. :)23:08
Bashing-omjon5000_: Show ' grep Prompt= /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades ' result .23:08
jon5000_Bashing-om: i got it... update manager is telling me 16.04 LTS is available.23:09
jon5000_I will upgrade. thanks.23:09
Bashing-omjon5000_: K; Not wishing you luck, as it is all Prior Prudent Planning .23:10
chasinglogicBashing-om: I meant ubuntu snappy core the distribution23:12
Pugho@debidi: I found some articles about xen vs kvm but cant decide based on that O.o why you mentioned xen?23:12
jon5000_Bashing-om: thanks!  I'm out23:13

naccchasinglogic: i would ask in #snappy23:24
chasinglogicnacc: thanks I didn't know that was a channel23:24
on3pkgoing back to squid, the system I was planning on using only has 1 NIC.  Is that going to be a massive headache?23:24
naccchasinglogic: !alis can help you find channels; also https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList23:25
chasinglogicnacc: I realize now that sounded sarcastic-ish but it was sincere23:25
naccchasinglogic: np, i didn't take it that way :)23:26
naccon3pk: why would it matter if you had more than 1 nic?23:26
on3pkwell I want this to be a transparent install of squid.  Wouldn't it mean that data goes... in... one and out.. the other?23:27
naccon3pk: what do you mean by transparent install of squid? squid is a proxy. So you install it and tell clients to use it as their proxy (or you put it in the network in such a way that they have to use it)23:27
=== bear|away is now known as thebaer
naccon3pk: did you want squid to proxy your entire network without any configuration?23:29
on3pkas little configuration as possible, yeah23:29
on3pkhowever, if it's possible to I guess just set the squid server as the gateway, would 1 nic be ok?23:30
naccon3pk: gateway is a routing thing; is your squid server capable of being the gateway already (it really has nothing to do with squid, aiui). Does your network use dhcp? I think you can tell your dhcp server to serve out autoproxy information.23:33
on3pkmy dhcp server is built into some off brand router23:34
on3pkI don't know if I have that much control23:34
naccon3pk: have you read http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/TransparentProxy.html ?23:35

GrorcoHi I was wondering how groups work, if I were to add my daughter to the games group would it let her install games?23:49
naccGrorco: no, installation is still controlled by having root access23:49
naccGrorco: you could in theory restrict access to running games to the games gropu, i think23:50
amnixnacc: So?23:50
naccamnix: i see the 'for purchase' section, but it's empty on my machine23:50
Grorconacc: okay so lets say I didn't want her to play GTA 5000 I could create a restricted-games-group add it to that and not allow her access?23:51
naccGrorco: well, you don't really add an executable to a group, to be clear, you restrict who an execute the executable (permissions), so her user would not be able to run the program.23:52
naccThere might be ways to circumvent htat, but off the top of my head there shouldn't be23:52
naccothers might have better ideas for fine-grained access control23:52
Grorconacc: See I want to let her install whatever games she wants, but I don't want to hand root access to a 13 year old lol not sure what to do23:53
amnixWhat happened to all the paid apps that were in the app store in 14.04? Can they not be installed on 16.04? Someone please answer.23:54
GrorcoI got to go thanks nacc :)23:55
RakkoIs it possible to use the menubar network controls sometimes, and command line and text editors other times, to modify network (especially wifi) settings? Can the two methodologies coexist?23:56
naccRakko: yes they can, although it's not recommended to mix & match (and they probably can confuse each other)23:57
Rakkonacc: hmm, sounds contradictory.23:57
Rakkois NetworkManager the right terminology for the GUI-based tools I'm talking about?23:58
