masuberuhas Ubuntu a tool or a way to restore the / file permission?03:27
sarnoldmasuberu: if you've changed / to something that then forbids you from running commands, you may not have many options except rebooting into a rescue system03:40
sarnoldmasuberu: maybe you can run programs via ../../bin/chmod03:41
masuberuyou mean boot from original cd and restore it from there?03:41
sarnoldyeah that should do it03:41
sarnoldwhat di dyou change it to? :) and how? :)03:41
masuberuis there an option to fix it on the installation menu on the boot cd?03:42
masuberumate, I did the most stupid thing on earth03:42
masuberuI run sudo chmod -R 777 / nvme03:42
masuberuinstead of sudo run chmod -R /nvme03:42
sarnoldso you've got a lot more than just the permissions on / to fix03:42
masuberubasically everything03:42
masuberuwhat would you recommend?03:43
sarnoldafter a good long cry?03:43
masuberuis reinstall my only solution?03:43
sarnoldthat's the best solution, but you might be able to get away with comparing against another system03:44
sarnold.. and then manually fixing everything. that doesn't sound like fun though.03:44
masuberuI thought ubuntu installation cd could fix it03:45
masuberuchoosing an option from the installation menu?03:45
sarnoldafaik debian/ubuntu doesn't have any equivalent of other systems's "expected permissions" tools, and I don't think dpkg has any way to report which permissions are wrong and what they -ought- to be :(03:45
masuberuhum ok03:45
masuberunow my problem is that I can't ssh into it ...03:46
sarnold.. because the permissions are too permissive. oooof.03:46
masuberuI go to terminal and I can ping outside03:46
masuberuthe ip of the machine is same as before so no network issues03:46
masuberudoes it ring any bell?03:47
sarnoldyeah, ssh is really picky about allowed permissions on its files03:47
sarnoldtry first chmod 755 / /etc /etc/ssh /home ~ ; chmod 700 ~/.ssh03:48
masuberuhasn't complain03:50
masuberushall I restart the machine?03:50
sarnolddepends; if you want to just re-install, that's not a bad option. if you want to try to fix it, just keep changing permissions on it until it's fixed.. _then_ reboot03:55
masuberui ended up reinstalling06:01

foormeahi. i'm working on a headless server and i'm about to change its mobo. do i have a way to predict the network interface name with the new mobo? with ethX renamed in enXXXX i'm a bit wary of screwing up my config (and i have no access to console or serial on that headless server)12:50
patdk-wkor add a udev rule12:50
foormeamh, could you explain further how to predict the name, or how to add the udev rule, or point me to some doc? :) sorry i'm a bit clueless right now :/12:52
ogra_the location also makes apt pick the closest server for your sources.list12:54
foormeapatdk-wk, got it: https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames/    thanks for the hint!13:00
pirxlamont: thanks!13:02
foormeaback to my question about predictable network interface naming: can i somehow have both the predictable (enpXsY...) AND the former standard (ethX) pointing to the same device?13:33
foormeathis way i'd be able to configure my eth0 during the motherboard change13:34
foormeaas it's gonna be tricky to know the "predictable" name for that specific slot on that new mobo :/13:34
ogra_you mean the unpredictable names taht everyone knew from the top of his head ? :)13:34
ogra_you can drop "predictable names" completely by setting net.ifname=0 on your kernel commandline13:35
ogra_that will switch bac to the old behaviour13:35
foormeawell i don't really wanna do that: i don't wanna use an older standard. i'd like to have both ethX and enpXsY for a bit, so that i'll know after mobo change the new iface name13:36
foormeaif i disable it altogether, i won't know the new name under predictable scheme13:36
ogra_ah, thanks for the correction (and sorry)13:36
foormeai'm thinking of having a script run at bootup that dumps "ip a" into a file, boot with new mobo13:37
foormeareboot with old mobo and see the file13:37
foormeamodify config accordingly...13:37
foormeathat's a bit overkill13:37
foormeabut i have no serial/screen/keyboard AND i have no usb HDD reader13:38
Odd_Blokefoormea: No DHCP server?13:38
foormeai have a dhcp running on the network yeah13:38
foormeaif that iface is not told in /etc/network/interfaces to come up... it won't, will it?13:38
foormeaand the thing is, i need to be EXACT in what i'm doing, or i lose my server until i get a screen/keyboard/etc for it :/13:39
Odd_Blokefoormea: Well, you can specify configuration for both eth0 and $new_name and still have the option to switch back to the old mobo, right?13:42
foormeaany thoughts, anything obvious i haven't thought of (apart from reverting to older ethX naming scheme)?13:42
Odd_Blokehttps://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/493546-How-to-predict-predictable-network-interface-names <-- there's a script there which purports to tell you the predictable name13:42
Odd_Bloke(Note that I had to change the path of lspci, but it worked for me)13:42
foormeaohhhh let me see13:42
foormeain that case i'd revert to ethX scheme, change mobo, check the "predictable" name with that script, revert config to predictable13:43
Odd_Blokefoormea: Right, because you don't actually have the system booted with the new hardware.13:43
foormeaaright very good, very helpful that link you just gave me13:44
foormeaanyway the background story is: i'm sort of scavenging hardware13:44
foormeaand just got a hold of a newer mobo/cpu than what i had13:44
foormeaargh grrr i hope virtualisation is enabled in that mobo's bios...13:45
Odd_Blokefoormea: TBH, you might be best off scavenging a keyboard/monitor and doing this another day. ;)13:46
foormeayeah perhaps you're right, but i like a challenged13:47
foormeawell thanks for the tips, i'll give it a thought and let you know how it went if i end up doing it13:48
TeguI had to move a 16.04 usb installation to another machine and had the same naming issue. fortunately, I could connect the other machine to a monitor and check the name there. but I kinda wished it could be automagic :)13:50
foormeaoh well i'll go ahead for that solution: revert to older naming scheme, get the new name, revert to newer naming scheme13:56
foormeaworst case it screw it up and won't be able to use it for a few days -- found a keyboard, but i'll need to find a vga cable which i can find in 3 days13:57
foormeaso i add net.ifnames=0 to end of line "linux   /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.0-28-generic root=UUID=8c3f5192-2348-45f9-ad7f-83360f82589b ro" in my /boot/grub/grub.cfg ?14:00

yoinkKVM issues with 16.04 - basically I run a bunch of 14.04 virual machines (on a 16.04 host) without issue. However I can't seem to connect/setup 16.04 in KVM. Whether I update a working 14.04 VM to 16.04 or start with 16.04 from scratch, it won't get to the console to login.14:33
yoinkI'm using libguestfs mostly - so virt-builder and virt-install and managing the vms through Virsh.14:34
rbasakyoink: uvtool works on 16.04 to start a 16.04 instance. AFAIK cloud images as published work with 16.04's KVM. So I wonder what virt-builder/virt-install are doing differently?14:35
yoinkrbasak: I'll check with the #libguestfs folks. Other images work fine... maybe it's time to learn a new toolset! :)14:36
yoinkReading up on uvtool now. :)14:36
rbasakyoink: well the paths are certainly going to be very different. If there is a bug somewhere, it could be in libvirt for example, or just a change in behaviour that causes something unintended. My question is really more about identifying what that thing is to determine where the bug might be.14:37
rbasakI've just verified that uvtool successfully started:14:37

LaserAllan_hey there, ive got a question, I have a couple of nfs folders that I want to be mounted at startup, should those commands be written with sudo in the rc.local script?15:00
mdeslaurLaserAllan_: no, add the mounts you want to /etc/fstab15:04
LaserAllan_mdeslaur: Oh, ok, what is rc.local then for launching applications and so on?, ive probably just missunderstood it all15:08
LaserAllan_but thanks15:08
LaserAllan_but should the nfs mount commands be added with sudo or is it automatic sudo on those?15:08
mdeslauryou don't directly add the commands, look at the file, you just need to add an entry to it15:09
riz0nHello guys, I have an HP DL380 G3 server that I have installed Ubuntu LTS on. No GUI. Is there a way to change the system from loading the ATI Rage drivers to just loading Generic VGA drivers? The ATI drivers are causing my system to crash after so long of running.15:09
mdeslaurLaserAllan_: rc.local is run with root privileges, so anything you put in there doesn't need sudo15:09
riz0nRigh now, as it stands, when the system boots, eventually the system changes and the size of the letters on the screen get very, very small. I want standard VGA with the big letters. Any help would be appreciated!15:17
LaserAllan_mdeslaur: Is it the same with fstab?15:18
LaserAllan_Since i need to put the nfs mount commands in there15:18
mdeslaurLaserAllan_: the mounts in fstab are mounted as root, yes15:18
mdeslaurLaserAllan_: but you don't put commands in that file15:18
LaserAllan_mdeslaur: So where do I put them then?15:23
mdeslaurLaserAllan_: you put them in /etc/fstab, but not the commands. that file is a list, you just add what you want to the list.15:24
mdeslaursee here: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man5/fstab.5.html15:24
LaserAllan_mdeslaur: Hmm, i have never really done this before so what do I put ther ethen to amek nfs folders mount on startup on my other host?15:26
mdeslaursomething like "servername:dir /mntpoint nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0"15:27
mdeslaursee here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo15:27
LaserAllan_mdeslaur: Thanks15:28
riz0nOK guys, I uncommented a line in the Grub config that put it in 640x480 then "update-grub" and it booted into 640x480. Any way to see what video drivers are loading and change them to just standard VGA? Or should it be standard VGA since there is no GUI?15:48
nacc!crosspost | riz0n15:50
ubotturiz0n: Please don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.15:50

teward14.04.4 is the latest point release :)15:54
naccriz0n: ok, i think you should check what lspci says for your graphics device as to the driver in-use (and/or lshw)15:54
riz0ne that doesn't really matter, I'm on 14.04 LTS15:54
* teward goes back to lurking15:54
naccriz0n: it does matter, actually (given that you have different kernels, and stacks with each hwe stack, potentially)15:54
riz0nand my remote desktop is acting goofy15:54

riz0nit's rock solid till the NMI PCI error happens (and I've traced it to the video). I hate to fill it full of buckshot over something simple I can easily fix. Plus I don't have the money to buy a new server yet.16:01

naccrattking: afaict, /etc/init/tty?.conf still exist with systemd16:23
rattkingoh perhaps there is another reason its not working then.. thanks16:23
rbasakI don't think they're used though, are they?16:23
rbasakAIUI, /lib/systemd/system/getty* are what are used now.16:24
naccunclear :/16:24
rbasakAnd you can override with /etc/systemd/system/16:24
naccah it does seem to be there now16:24
naccrbasak: another case like our init.d discussion of confusing end-results :)16:24
rbasakIt's a consequence of Debian supporting multiple init systems.16:25

Toraxmaluis there a known issue? I've read, that there are is the advise to switch back to BIOS, but that is simply not possible for my case17:04
PryMar56maybe there is an efi boot blob in the *.deb17:04
PryMar56maybe not17:05
Toraxmaluand that means?17:05
PryMar56Toraxmalu, upstream xen includes source for the xen.efi. Not sure is Xenial packages/builds it17:05
Toraxmaluokay - you're talking to a windows-power-user... and i understand, that xenial possible didn't compile that important stuff - do you have a link or something, so i can build that thing by myself?17:06
Toraxmalu(howto would be nive - sorry)17:07
ToraxmaluPryMar56 - I've found the Issue-List17:20
Toraxmaluit is simply not possible with UEFI with ubuntu 16.0417:20
