naccRakko: yeah it's Network Manager (by default)00:00
naccRakko: you asked if it's possible, and it is, and they do coexist. I wouldn't recommend it, at the same time :)00:00
naccRakko: unless you meant nmcli as your cli option00:00
naccRakko: in which case it should be fine (i think)00:00
RakkoI didn't know of nmcli. Maybe I'll check it out. I just meant you said they can coexist but then said "they probably can confuse each other"00:03
naccRakko: if you use NM and then modify or use, say, /etc/network/interfaces, I imagine you might see some issues. Again, I don't think it's advised to try and confuse your system :)00:04
RakkoRight now all I really want to do is control wifi status (=whether it's on, and what SSID it's connected to) from the command line. I have wired on the same computer, which is what I use for the most part, so I guess it would be OK for now to have the wired connection under Network Manager and the wifi under command-line control -- if that's possible.00:05
naccRakko: why wouldn't you use nm for your wifi too?00:05
naccRakko: but yeah, i'd look at nmcli for that if you really want cli, it should do what you want00:06
Rakkonacc: basically I'd like to ssh into my other computer and control the wifi without having to run X00:07
naccRakko: ah, you didn't say it was remote, got it00:08
Rakkoplus I just like things to at least give the option of text fiddling00:08
Rakkodoes NM control routes?00:11
naccRakko: it can00:12
RakkoI would like the wifi route to only connect to one IP00:12

eelstrebori'll give it a try - i don't want to have to spend a lot of time re-installing everything if something goes wrong - besides, why isn't 4.4.0 installed by default by the package manager?01:20
nacceelstrebor: right, but that's not a kernel panic from installing the kernel, that's from using the kernel ... it was phrased funny01:20
nacceelstrebor: because it's not the default kerenl?01:21
nacceelstrebor: you said you !hwe didn't apply to you, but that's exactly what we're talking about01:21

I can go into it and see 2 folders "DCM_00000001_00000001" and "DCM_00000001". Also there is a url shortcut to "get started with gopro.url". the top of the window of the file manager says "contains digital photos". Going into either of those03:30
locutusfolders I see no files. I absolutely know there are 7 video files on the camera.03:30
irinixthe only real thing that has changed is that I disassembled / reassembled the laptop to clean it.03:32
irinixSince I'm using it right now on my windows partition, I can rule out the hardware03:32
rypervencheGuy1524: You can use nmap or netcat.03:32
wyseguycan someone help with a multi monitor issue? I have 3 monitors and I cant seem to align then correctly. If I try dragging a monitor it wont move, then randomly is will let me place it in some weird spot but wont line up with the others03:32
YankDownUnderirinix: However, the buttons are very sensitive - the ribbon cable that plugs in the keyboard to the system board and the "extra" ribbon cables are very sensitive...from experience...03:33
YankDownUnderirinix: As well, connections for daughterboards and the likes are also a bit freaky at times...03:33
irinixYankDownUnder, I have 15 years experience03:33
Guy1524rypervenche: just installed nmap, how do I ping an ip using udp at a certain port03:34
irinixyes, they can be.03:34
irinixI'm just more windows experienced than linux03:34
wyseguynm i got it, i had to right click and move it dohhh lol03:35
YankDownUnderirinix: That being said, however, is the wifi working under Windows or from a LiveUSB? Because that in itself would tell you whether or not there is something hosed up in your linux installation...hmm...03:35
irinixfrom windows03:35
rypervencheGuy1524: sudo nmap -sU -p 9999 ip.goes.here (change the 9999 and IP)03:36
Guy1524k thanks03:36
irinixI'm pretty sure it's with linux.  I run an intel 6320 card, and it's always been an issue, though not like this03:36
irinixhttp://pastebin.com/jGuSnFXy  <<This is the modprobe.d configuration file I had to set up to make the wifi work in the first place03:37
YankDownUnderirinix: In order to get it to work the first time you installed 15.04, did you do anything special? As well, something to think about, have you moved/changed any USB devices since it was working and now? Being that you've disassembled the machine...just asking...trying to follow a logical flow.03:37
irinixYankDownUnder, the only thing that isn't *exactly* where it was when I was running before is the empty sd-card adapter03:38
irinixmy mouse & external hard drives are in the same ports03:38
YankDownUnderirinix: Yeah...far out...03:38
irinixthat last pastebin made the wifi work when the install was fresh03:38
Guy1524how do I extract retrieve an output from nmap (specifically whether the connection is open or closed)03:39
irinixwell heck it can't hurt to try and reinstall the firmware03:39
YankDownUnderirinix: You could always try this: 1.) Comment out the "load" of the module when the system boots. Boot the system WITHOUT that module. See what happens. Shut the system down. Boot again, re-edit the module to load again. Shut the machine down. Restart (from cold). See if that resolves...03:40
rypervencheGuy1524: What do you mean "extract"?03:42
rypervencheweebee: Hi03:43
irinixYankDownUnder, again, forgive me, as most of my repair experience is windows, but where am I commenting out the module load?03:43
weebeewhat's going on rypervenche03:44
YankDownUnderirinix: Where you added the forced load in the firs tplace03:44
rypervencheweebee: Not much. Have an Ubuntu question?03:45
weebeerypervenche: Nope. This is my first time on any irc so i just wanted to say hello.03:46

MegamanCan someone help me duelboot ubuntu and windows04:03
SwedeMikeMegaman: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBoot04:04
rcmainakwhat about my problem? :(04:05
rypervenchercmainak: It depends on the order that your disks were discovered.04:05
rypervenchercmainak: You can mount them by something that won't change.04:06
rcmainaki want that. tell me more04:06
YankDownUnderYou can always edit the /etc/fstab and establish a permanent place for mounts - if that's what the desire is.04:07
rypervenchercmainak: I would type "sudo blkid" and use the UUID for mounting and add it to your fstab.04:08
rcmainakdisclaimer: i'm a noob04:08
rcmainakall though I can type in "sudo blkid"04:09
rypervenchercmainak: Then go to pastebin.com and paste the output there, then give us the link and tell us what you would like to mount.04:09
rypervenchercmainak: And would you like this to mount each time you start the machine or only when you tell it to?04:09
rcmainakI would prefer GitHub Gist. I hope there is no problem with that.04:11
rypervenchercmainak: Go for it.04:11

rcmainakrypervenche: The output is pretty terrible. link -> https://gist.github.com/RCMainak/545855dc4f86466fb74f95b9512696b804:15
rypervenchercmainak: Cool, so you can mount sda5 like: mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/4b5c9c96-a780-4660-a49b-b459563ec5f5 /whereveryouwant04:18
rypervenchercmainak: Or if you want it to always mount to the same place, we can help you add it to your fstab file.04:18
rcmainakI can only access dev/sda6 using the file explorer. can't find out where dev/sda5 is gone04:20
rcmainakOpps! it is the other partition I guess lol04:21
auctus_so i can boot into the cli with 'advanced ubuntu options' whatever kernel -> upstart, from the boot menu, works fine, but trying to boot normally it gets stuck on that blank, vaguely purple-ish screen the ubuntu logo is supposed to eventually show loading on, never gets beyond there04:29

theDudethis is my second reboot. what is best apt-get terminal command to update everything?04:31
stacks88theDude depends on what you want to upgrade. apt-get update;apt-get upgrade generally04:33
rcmainakrypervenche: let me restate the problem with a image. check the gist for the image -> https://gist.github.com/RCMainak/545855dc4f86466fb74f95b9512696b804:35
rcmainakI don't want it to create a separate file when I boot in04:36
rypervenchercmainak: Each partition will have a different folder. You can tell it where to mount though if you want it to have a different name.04:41
rcmainakok, let's try that. rypervenche04:44
rypervenchercmainak: Take a look at this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab or https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions04:45
rcmainakrypervenche: bash: I tried "/usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/sda6". Output->  "bash: /usr/bin/udisks: No such file or directory"05:00
rypervenchercmainak: Oh nono, you just need to add one or two likes to your /etc/fstab file.05:00
RyanTGHow do you specify you want the .snap version of an app to run instead of the .deb version?05:03
rcmainakrypervenche:  you mean edit /etc/fstab file05:03
rypervenchercmainak: Yes, lines* You need to edit the file. Sorry I am not helping more at the moment, I'm getting ready for bed.05:04
RyanTGFor example, I had vlc-2.2.2-5 installed via apt and vlc daily installed via snap, but I wasn't sure which one I was starting until I purged vlc using apt and then re-launched it, showing 3.0.005:05
rcmainakrypervenche: no point in preparing, you can't sleep well without helping me lol05:05
RyanTGprior to apt-get purge (remove probably would have worked too), launching it kept launching 2.2.2-505:06
rypervenchercmainak: Then answer this. Where do you want each folder to be mounted?05:06
=== ilanalim is now known as thePhonyAnon
rcmainakrypervenche: I don't want the path of the files to be changed each type I boot in. see the image in the gist. dev/sda6 was first represented by the first folder then the second folder poped up and changed the path. then the third one. If I want to access files under dev/sda6 i need to enter the path "/media/mainak/cf0301bb-381f-44ec-bad0-adb94bad448c3/GitHub" in terminal at first the path...05:10
rcmainak...was "/media/mainak/cf0301bb-381f-44ec-bad0-adb94bad448c/GitHub"05:10
jon_hello i just upgraded to 15.10 on a lenovo yoga 13 and now it does not recognize trackpad05:11
rcmainak"cf0301bb-381f-44ec-bad0-adb94bad448c" this part is common in each file. the additional 1 or 2 or 3 is messing up things05:11
rypervenchercmainak: Oh, that looks like a mounting problem perhaps.05:11
marimon2hello, i have dependency problem with apache205:12
marimon2libapache2-mod-php7.0 : Depends: apache2-api-2012021105:12

rightnowHello i need some help. I have added a crontab using both  "crontab -e" and "sudo crontab -e" .. it says: 11 20  * * * bash /home/christopher/bin/backup-db.sh >/dev/null 2>&1         it ran on 17 min above 11, but the syslog says: (CRON) error (can't fork).

rightnowsorry, i meant it run at 11 min past 2009:21
rightnowit ran on time09:22
tynangwokamollaye: i'm messaging you09:22
Triffid_Hunterrightnow: you can't put shell redirects and stuff in cron, it won't work, cron is not a shell. you may want to try sh -c '/path/to/your/script >/dev/null 2>&1' or similar09:23
rightnowsh -c.. inside the cron file?09:23

Triffid_Hunterrightnow: no.. why would it?09:27
folfrightnow, I obviously don't know what is inside the script, but if you open a terminal as christopher and run /home/christopher/bin/backup-db.sh (without calling bash on the script) then cron should be able to also run it just fine09:28

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.15:08
Wulfuzamaki_naruto: if you have a technical problem, try putting yourself in the position of someone who reads your question. Is that possibly enough information to give a useful answer?15:09
MonkeyDustriz0n  FYI: there's also #ubuntu-server15:17
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
riz0nMonkeyDust: I am in there and posted the question there, too :)15:17
riz0nHonestly, I've never had an Ubuntu system give me the kind of problems this one is showing. On last boot, somehow I was lucky and was able to get it to load regular VGA. The NMI "Dazed and confused" error never showed up.15:18
geniiriz0n: vga=78615:19
riz0ngenii: I am guessing that is what I need. The resolution is a problem because I normally don't have a monitor connected to the machine. But in the event I do need to connect one, I want to be able to connect my early 90's IBM B&W CRT if need be, and it just work.15:21
riz0nbut the video drivers are too because they are causing the system to go down the toilet after a couple of days of runtime.15:22

lyzeHey guys, Friend of mine lost his sysadmin because of personal reasons and now I should try to fix some bugs. They however don't know the root password of mysql and sites like wordpress and everything depend on it.

hey2and its a news story about Ubuntu15:26
lyzenicomachus, He's gone. Completely15:26
hey2MonkeyDust, I thought it was relevant, as it is specifically about Ubuntu?15:26
lyzenicomachus, http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/resetting-permissions.html and you can reset the root password apparently.15:26
SchrodingersScatHulio: it's the same as your credentials on the machine.  so if you have user account 'Hulio' on it, then it would be sftp Hulio@address  #then your password when prompted, unless you use ssh keys15:26
nicomachuslyze: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bus_factor15:26

ubottuHulio: To add new users to your Ubuntu system, follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto - For administrative privileges, users need to be made members of the group "sudo" - See !sudo15:28
Huliowow, can't you just tell me?15:28
SchrodingersScatHulio: there's a couple different ways, I use 'adduser'15:28
SchrodingersScatHulio: bot is also there for a reason, it gave a more complete answer than me :^)15:29
tgm4883Hulio: the SFTP users are just regular users on your system15:29
HulioSchrodingersScat, got it..i was able to add user15:31
Hulioi assume sftp is using port 23 right?15:31
Hulioby default right?15:31

nicomachusyou can try deleting them from there.15:41
CodeMouse92I only see two accounts: accounts.db and accounts.db-journal15:41
CodeMouse92But, since the only account is Google, I could try backing up and deleting these anyway15:41

Extreme21355how can I change default python version?15:59
tgm4883Extreme21355: update the python symlink16:01

PiciExtreme21355: do you mean changing from python2 to python3?16:01
Extreme21355Pici: yes for example16:02
Extreme21355tgm4883: could you give me an example for the symlink?16:02
PiciExtreme21355: You don'16:02
Extreme21355Pici: because it will break system links with the default python path right?16:02
PiciExtreme21355: python is supposed to always point to python2, and python3 is python3.  Changing this *will* break your system.16:02
tgm4883Extreme21355: why do you want to do that?16:02
Extreme21355Pici: ok, nevermind; thanks a lot tough16:03
tgm4883"will probably break"16:03
Extreme21355tgm4883: was just asking myself if it was possible without breaking the system16:03
tgm4883Extreme21355: some things will probably break. There really isn't a reason to do so though16:03
Picitgm4883: probably less of a chance now that 16.04 uses python3 by default, but not all scripts do that yet, and anything outside the Ubuntu sphere of influence assumes that python is 2 and python3 is 3.16:03
tgm4883Pici: I'd argue that it doesn't use python 3 by default16:04
Picitgm4883: I mean it ships python3, and most of the system python scripts have been upgraded to use 3.  IMO "python" being python2.x is a standard and isn't affected by my suggestion that we ship 3 by default.16:05
asad_How can I configure my touchpad so that a three finger tap triggers a mouse middle click?16:07
tgm4883Pici: meh, then that is one of the only applications that we take that stance on. Also "uses" is different than "ships". I think we've shipped python 3 for a while now16:07
asad_Right now from what I've noticed tapping on the top right corner of the touchpad does that.16:07
Picitgm4883: yeah, I guess.16:07

dna113pNeed help troubleshooting. I use ubuntu mate with compiz. Going fine for months and today i start up and have no window features (can't alt tab, no exit/minimize window buttons, my workspace grid dissapeared) I have no idea how to fix or why it broke in the first place16:37
Jon777<dna113p>, did you install any updates?16:38
dna113pYes was just typing that the only culprit I can remember was that I was having some weird issue with python and neovim and removed and reinstalled python316:38
Jon777not sure, theres nothing that specific out on the web. I would try a fresh install make sure everythings updated then reinstall. you could try a different kernel like 4.7 then install compiz16:44
dna113pJon777, I figured it out. Somehow ccsm had gotten removed and reinstalling it fixed the issues16:45
* nacc would not suggest ever removing either python or python3 ... and sort of surprised it let you? gnome & unity, at least, depend on it16:45
Tyieseanyone ever have issues with downloading things like chrome, vivaldi, flash (pretty much any download)?16:45
Jon777you seem to know more than me about linux16:45
Jon777i would of been stuck lol16:46
Jon777not really Tyiese i usually use debian so its just a .deb file16:46
naccJon777: generally, you don't install a different kernel to fix a regression like that16:46
naccTyiese: 'downloading' ?16:46
dna113pJon777, lol I have had so many issues in the past with GPU drivers in ubuntu that I think i just had a panic reaction16:46
naccTyiese: do you mean `apt-get` ?16:47
Jon777yeah, my laptop has an amd gpu and drivers are horrible16:47
naccdna113p: did you have to force remove python3 (or how did you, if using stock ubuntu with unity?)16:47
Jon777i tried the open source optimized drivers and they seemed to work better16:47

Jon777linux mints not bad either16:49
Jon777cinnamons ok16:49
naccdna113p: ok, python3 is pretty integral, so it's not surprising it removed other things that are key16:50

bilb_onokind of long story: I have 2 ubuntu's - 1 has extra stuff for a software package on it - both 12.04. I was on the stock 12.04. I installed the new one with "install alongside" hopefully keeping the old ubuntu. I restart - some "grub rescue" thing comes up. Ok well that didn't work. I now want to get my files from my old stock ubuntu onto my external drive. I boot into try ubuntu. I see my hard drive in the list of devices. I double click it to ensure that my17:18
bilb_onofiles are still on it. It says "authentication required to mount the device" I type in my old password - this doesn't work...17:18
bilb_onoany ideas what the password on this old file system might be?17:19
bilb_onoand epsecially, how I can get to my old files - using the terminal, etc.17:19
tgm4883bilb_ono: was it encrypted?17:19
bilb_onotgm4883: nope17:19
tgm4883bilb_ono: then you shouldn't need a password to view the files17:19
bilb_onotgm4883: ok... how about this. is there a way to boot into my old installation17:21
bilb_onothere should be right - considering I "installed alongside" ?17:21
tortibbilb_ono, just boot into your current install17:21
bilb_onocool. how do I do that?17:21
tortibthen mount the partition using mount /dev/sda3 (change 3 to whichever partition the old data is on) /mnt17:21
tortibthen you can grab your files from /mnt17:22
bilb_onotortib: ok how would I boot into the current install? I am on "try ubuntu" right now17:22
tortibbilb_ono, just boot off your HDD?17:22
tgm4883tortib: you might want to read the original issue17:23
bilb_onotortib: can you give more specifics on how to do that? I assume press F12 to enter setup menu17:23
bilb_onothen UEFI or legacy boot17:23
bilb_onoill go to that menu at least17:23

kalb0they im new to linux os versions and currently running ubuntu gnome, does anyone know anywhere on the web or book that gives a good understanding of the os and how to get the best out of it18:10
akikTin_man: you can install ext2fsd in windows. it enables r/w ext access18:10
CodeMouse92kalb0t: What topics are you interested in? For the command line, I recommend "The Linux Command Line" by William E. Shotts, Jr: http://linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php18:12
CodeMouse92That teaches you about the structure of the operating system, and how to use the Terminal (the heart of the OS). He starts from complete newbie-level and goes all the way up to advanced topics18:12
kalb0tCodeMouse92: Yes, CLI side of things and to also use it for php development, sql and cyber security18:13
kalb0tcodemouse92: cheers :)#18:13
CodeMouse92kalb0t: That book would be a good place to start, then. From there, you can learn PHP, SQL, and security as separate topics.18:13
CodeMouse92kalb0t: Most developers learn technical topics in an OS-agnostic manner, and then apply their existing OS knowledge to it.18:14
SchrodingersScatkalb0t: 2nding cli as a way to 'get the most' out of a linux.  Can do a LOT even with limited knowledge18:15
kalb0tI have come to realise the power of the os cli just by setting up the os and updating installing software18:16

Gregor3000gabriel_: removing desktop will remove applications that are part of the desktop meta package18:25
nikolamjustsomeguy, Thanks, it looks proprietary but has downloadable ISO, there is also memtest.org dunno if dev of it stuck, but it's GPL18:26

gabriel_Gregor3000, that's where it gets weird. it took the applications that were not a part of the desktop env. the ones that were there already before18:27
Gregor3000tgm4883: AFAIK tasksel is meant for installing not removing things. however removing desktop should remove the apps that were installed with the desktop. at least those that are actually part of the desktop.18:27
Jordan_Unikolam: justsomeguy: Memtest86+ is is Free Software, "Memtest86" is proprietary.18:27
Gregor3000gabriel_: what was the command you used to uninstall the desktop?18:28
nikolamJordan_U, yes, I figured it, + one needs support it seems18:28
tumudiforkdoes  ubuntu simply overwites the files? after upgrade?18:28

tumudiforkthe config files ,how does it work?18:30
tumudiforki am arch user also,and worry that upgrade might fail because of config ,18:30

Narwhaalwell old user files it keeps18:31
tumudiforkNarwhaal,  i mean does it overwrite the old config?18:31
nikolamjustsomeguy, yes, thanks anyway18:31
Narwhaalwhat old config ? for what program/s ?18:31
Jordan_Utumudifork: If a file in /etc/ has changed between releases of a package then you will be prompted to either keep your existing configuration file, overwrite with the package maintainer's version, do a three way merge, or handle the situation manually.18:31
tumudiforkhave you use arch? then you  will know. in arch we got ot merge the configs18:31

irregularHow can I have screenshots (using the printscreen button) default to copying to the clipboard? Currently the printscreen button takes a screenshot but asks me if i want to copy to clipboard or save it and does neither18:37
Gregor3000 gabriel_: so it depends what command is actually runs for removal. it used to have a note not to use tasksel for uninstall. i see it is gone from the wiki. tasksel just runs tasks. it is not necessary on desktops but is usefull on servers and mini.iso. it might have been safer to run apt-get remove you should tghen see a list of what will be removed and description.18:38
Fred1283Hi all, I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 on Raspberry Pi 2 B and I have a hanging Software updater. It stops when it says "checking for updates - Downloading from ports.ubuntu.com"  .

EriC^^samtcg: the software will be outdated and you'd have to do a hack to be able to access the repos (they get moved to somewhere else on the ubuntu servers)19:02
CodFectionthanks Feren^IRCCloud19:03
samtcgHm. Very weird that godaddy is only offering 15.10 then19:03
samtcgAt least from what I can see19:03
MonkeyDustsamtcg  you can perfectly use a !eol version, but not install updates, as the sources are taken offline19:03
Jordan_Usamtcg: If you use EOL software then eventually your server will be hacked and start sending us all spam. We don't appreciate that. Don't use EOL software.19:04
MonkeyDustsamtcg  apt will no longer work19:04
samtcgNo you are putting me in a tough position19:04
EriC^^samtcg: the hack is easy, you won't get any new patches or anything though, and security too19:04
Jordan_UEriC^^: Please don't help people stay on EOL releases.19:05
EriC^^samtcg: you can still access the old repos and use apt, but all the software will be old, also you might be ostrichized and people might avoid helping you here19:05
EriC^^*ahem* example ^19:05
EriC^^Jordan_U: just stating the non-biased facts19:05
EriC^^let's eod please19:05
tgm4883EriC^^: and for good reason. We shouldn't be helping people stay on EOL releases19:05
EriC^^(end of discussion)19:05
samtcgHow does it matter to other people if I use a low-security os?19:06
Jordan_Usamtcg: It sounds like godaddy has put you in a tough position. They at the very least should be offering Ubuntu 14.04, which is a long term support release.19:06
samtcgI hope they are19:06
samtcgI will contact their support19:06
Jordan_Usamtcg: Like I just said, your insecure server will likely become part of a botnet doing not nice things.19:06
EriC^^samtcg: can't you use a debian os instead?19:07
samtcgI can only choose between ubuntu 15.10 and fedora19:08
EriC^^might as well go with the supported os19:08
EriC^^unless you have a really good reason not to or something19:08
MonkeyDustsamtcg  maybe godaddy is waiting for 16.04.1, also to be released this month19:09
samtcgThat could be tight tho^^19:09
tgm4883that would be my guess19:09
tgm4883although odd they don't have 14.04 then19:09
MonkeyDustyes, that's odd19:09
samtcgOK so realistically, I wouldnt get hacked instantly right? My identified course of actions here will probably be to wait until 15.10 reaches end of life, see if godaddy offers an alternative, and if they dont, go to fedora?19:10
samtcgBut I am also contacting support19:11
ducassesamtcg: 15.10 goes eol on the 21st or 22nd, so it's not too far off.19:11
samtcgYeah I know, very strange19:12
nacc_July 28, per ubuntu-announce19:12
ducasseah, thanks.19:12
samtcgAsking support if I can use another version now19:12
samtcgLets see what he tells me19:12
samtcgAnd when is the eol of 16.04?19:13
EriC^^5 years later19:13
samtcgOK, update! GoDaddy will offer 16.04 in before august. So, at worst, I will have to run eol release for 2 days. But hopefully not at all. (Hope you wont hate me for that)19:29

james1138I thought I was using a Ubuntu kernel...  http://linuxdaddy.com/blog/install-kernel-4-4-on-ubuntu/19:52
nacc_!mainline | james113819:52
ubottujames1138: 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/MainlineBuilds19:52
EriC^^arussel: i've nothing, i know it's possible though cause the installer leaves /boot unencrypted by default19:52
nacc_james1138: *why* are you using a mainline kernel?19:53
arusselEriC^^: no, I did a full install, got my project up and running just to realise that my project couldn't be built on encrypted fs. I would much prefer if possible not to destroy data.19:53

nacc_james1138: 1) the mainline PPA is not supported anywhere, it's purely for testing19:54
EriC^^arussel: try joining ##linux and asking they might know19:54
nacc_james1138: 2) Ubuntu's kernel team backports fixes from upstream (and from the -stable trees, afaik) to their base kernel version19:55
james1138I guess I messed up. I thought the newer kernel had more power saving features than older ones.19:55

ubotturoot_: It's not technically our business, but we'd like to tell you that IRC'ing as root is a Very Bad Idea (tm). After all, doing anything as root when root is not needed is bad, and especially bad with software that connects to the Internet.20:16
EriC^^auvajs: how big are those dirs? try du -sh /var/lib/mysql /var/www20:17
=== GarrettShields_ is now known as GarrettShields
auvajsEriC^^: 2.4 G/var/lib/mysql.. counting size of /var/www will probably take a lot of time, since there are many small files in some dirs20:19
EriC^^auvajs: if you could boot into recovery mode you could extend the whole main partition to the whole space20:20
EriC^^i wonder if you have to rewrite the partition table too though20:20
EriC^^(in either case)20:21
auvajsEriC^^: would all "today" data stay?20:21
=== Afrotoast is now known as Toastarfo
EriC^^i think you don't have to, the partition table doesn't say where the disk ends i think, just where partitions start i guess20:21
EriC^^auvajs: yeah, having a backup for that is pretty mandatory though, it's usually safe but it involves deleting the partition (leaving the fs there) and then recreating the partition bigger, and resizing the fs so it takes up the new partition20:22
EriC^^you have to recreate it at the exact same starting sector for it to work20:23
auvajsEriC^^: wouldn't be safer to create a new partition /dev/xvda2, format it and mount it? /var/www is 4.2G btw20:23
=== anderson is now known as Guest78051
EriC^^auvajs: yeah it would be safer, but like if you do that, you'll only gain where you mounted it20:24
EriC^^like if you mount it at /var/www you'll gain 4.2g of space for the root partition, and have 10g room to grow there20:24

EriC^^/usr might be big, and /var too20:25

natriusi have 2 problem, one dualboot, wanna use firefox profile on both, working nice till i restart, second: how do i switch from front-audio device to back audio? i'm listening music though my headphone on the desk -.-20:25
natriusCan someone get some time to help me or point me in the right direction?20:26
auvajsEriC^^: why can't I mount a partition in / to use the place everywhere?20:26
EriC^^auvajs: you can only have 1 fs mounted under 1 dir usually20:26
=== jq is now known as Cydia
auvajsEriC^^: I don't really get it, so if I mount a new partition is some crazy dir like /home/me/blabla/blabla/blabla/blabla I can only use the space in this dir?20:28
EriC^^auvajs: yeah20:28
EriC^^think of the dir like a window to the partition20:28
auvajsEriC^^: that's stupid..20:28
=== Toastarfo is now known as afro
EriC^^if you mount it there, you're accessing the filesystem from there20:28
natriusdoes not sound stipid imho20:29
akikauvajs: you can do the /dev/xvda1 resize too but it's risky. that way you'll resize the root file system20:30
akikauvajs: have backups? :)20:30
auvajsakik: I do regular mysql database backups, I may backup the rest of important data, most space is taken by the software which can be reinstalled20:32
akikauvajs: basically you delete /dev/xvda1 and recreate it starting at the same sector (=2048)20:33
natriusi would need some help on dualboot with firefox profiles20:33
auvajsEriC^^: akik: /var 14 GB, /usr 2.2 GB20:34
akikauvajs: after a reboot you can use resize2fs to make the root file system utilize the whole 35 gigs20:34
akikauvajs: oh btw is it a ext3/4 partition?20:34
auvajsakik: /dev/xvda1 on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)20:36
EriC^^i'd resize it20:36
EriC^^you need a live session though for everything20:37

TheNH813AMD bases system. Wifi is Linksys and I think the chip is Broadcom20:54
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot20:54

Grorcoso I was thinking if I could chroot to her ~/ then it would install there20:56
TheNH813irinix: In that case I don't think there's a way to fix that unless they updated the drivers. Then a kernel upgrade might.20:57

Dathi, i have a kubuntu dualboot system with win7 and awhile ago my kubuntu system crashed, as of right now it boots to a terminal where I can login but starting kde fails, i'd like to just re-install kubuntu but without loosing my data or messing up my dualboot.. How can I do this?21:00
MonkeyDustDat  use a live session, backup from there21:00
jeremy31irinix  Is your access point using TKIP encryption?  I have a few Intel wireless cards and they struggle with TKIP21:01
Asathoordet >> have you tried startx from the terminal21:01
irinixjeremy31: nope, AES21:01
irinixI even set up a wireless bridge with straight AES last night, since I don't have control of the houses main router21:01
DatAsathoor: yes kde partly crashes21:02
jeremy31irinix Have you set any option for 11n_disable?21:02
irinixI've tried both 11n_disable and swcyrpto21:02
Asathoordat >> in that case try to reinstall via apt-get21:02
DatMonkeyDust: live cd ok I guess I can backup my home directory some how but how do I re-install without messing up the dual boot?21:02
TheNH813irnix: Sometimes, one of these is the only answer. They definitely work on Linux, I'v used them before. https://amzn.com/B003MTTJOY21:02
heeenhow do I setup a 14.04 chroot on 16.04 the wiki says download some debootstrap package manually, none of them are for trusty though21:03
DatAsathoor: from a live cd? because in the terminal i have no idea how to connect to wireless21:03
heeenjust the regular deboostrap?21:03
TheNH813But, I hope they go get those drivers patched soon. I'v heard a lot of trouble with them.21:03
Asathoordet >> if you can boot from say a cdrom / dvd then you can backup your stuff21:03
jeremy31irinix, what was the setting you used for 11n_disable=?  If you want 11N to work you should set to 821:03
irinixjeremy31: right now it is set to 1,21:03
DatAsathoor: i can boot from usb kubuntu stick.21:04
irinixbut I'll try 8 and see what happenes21:04
Asathoortry ¤  man iwconfig21:04
DatAsathoor: but how do i re-install or get the system backup without messing up dualboot21:04
debidiheeen: apt-get install deboostrap and use whatever codename for 14.04 on the cmd line and make sure to indicate what arch the chroot should be if needed21:05
AsathoorI'd recommend to plug in the network with a wire - normally it just works21:05
debidiheeen: debootstrap or cdebootstrap will do21:05
Asathoorthen you can try to reinstall kde21:05
Datsigh i only have wireless21:05
heeenwhats the difference21:05
DatAsathoor: can I do this from a live cd?21:06
debidiheeen: just implementation, equivalent functionality21:06
Bashing-omheeen: What is the end goal here ? There are easier ways to chroot than setting up a deboostrap .21:06
Asathoorapt-get install kde-plasma-desktop21:06

heeenbut how do you get all the 14.04 packages in there21:12
Bashing-omheeen: You are in the install .. update/upgrade and install away .21:13
heeendoes not parse21:13
heeendo I just download a trusty default apt sources file or what21:14
heeenand how to even get to the state that apt works21:14
heeenseems like what debootstrap does21:14
Bashing-omheeen: When the sudo chroot /mnt is executed, you are in the install .. as directed by the mount command .21:15
debidiso 14.04 is trusty right, debootstrap --arch i386/x86_64 trusty /path/to/chroot http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu21:16
heeenoh, you did not say I would have to actually install from a live cd in /dev/sdXY21:16
heeenthat seems to be actually more complicated21:16
heeendebidi: ok: I: Base system installed successfully.21:17
heeenwhat next, chroot /var/chroot/trusty?21:17
debidibeautiful, chroot /path/to/chroot yep, then apt-get install aptitude if u like, then install away21:17

OerHeks[/etc/modprobe.d/intel-microcode-blacklist.conf] blacklist microcode23:05
irinixcould you re-link me, I just switched OS's23:05
irinixI did not do that.23:07
OerHeksis it still there?23:07
irinixSo it must have been ubuntu itself23:07
OerHeksit is not on my install, AFAIK23:07
irinixI don't know atm.  I have to get *some* work done today, so I switched back to windows.  I will make a note to remove it though23:07
ubuntu817hey guys23:08
ubuntu817i have a really weird issue23:08
irinixas much as I <3 linux, this is the primary reason I always end up back on windows, because I end up spending inordinate amounts of time fighting something stupid that should work out of the box.23:08
YankDownUnderKeyword "should".23:09
ubuntu817I've auto mounted my network drive and use filebot's automated media center script to organise any files i download. however after it moves a file, it leaves the original behind named "cifs3425" or something. this happens very regularly23:09

Guest26197Okay, I found the conf and am poking around. I'm still not seeing anything that's making the channel come back on23:09
ubuntu817anyone got an idea as to whats going on?23:11
YankDownUnderGuest26197: You'll find four files in that directory - client.conf, daemon.conf, default.pa and system.pa -> they are what end up controlling the system-wide settings for pulise-audio...and therefore, would resolve the "ghosting" that you're seeing - as since you change something (the mic channel) and it resets itself...therefore, in affecting the "system-wide" pulse-audio settings, you can change the channel you wish - or mute it -23:12
YankDownUnder and that would go system-wide. Does that make sense? You will, obviously, have to restart the daemon to affect the system.23:12
Guest26197Yeah, I'm looking for the channel settings. Thanks for helping, I just havent found the setting I'm looking for yet.23:13
Player_Hello, I'm trying to set up Dropbox on an Ubuntu desktop but my keyboard input is completely random in the login window, can someone help me?23:15
prghello zadroty!!!23:16
Guest26197Am I looking for load-module module-device-restore?23:18
YankDownUnderGuest26197: Something to read quickly on your setup, mate: https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/User/PerfectSetup/23:20
Guest26197Thanks, reading23:20
YankDownUnderGuest26197: Better to teach a man to fish than to feed him the fish.23:21
stevlulzwhere are u23:25
Burritostevlulz: do you have a question related to Ubuntu?23:25
Burritostevlulz: if not, maybe join #ubuntu-offtopic for general chat23:26
BurritoI'm a friend of Player_. Maybe someone recognises his problem. This is a screenshot of the issue. http://puu.sh/pV7R6/2503ac330e.png23:30
Burritooops, wrong screenshot23:30
YankDownUnderBurrito: Strange that.23:31
Burritoaye. He's using it through a VNC server. But other programs work fine.23:31
YankDownUnderBurrito: So the "username field" cannot be modified...is that what you're getting at?23:32
Burritowell, it can be modified. But that's what he gets when he types "The quick fox jumps over the lazy dog"23:32
Burritothe 7s are spaces. It's just completely scrambled.23:32
YankDownUnderBurrito: Ah...right...fair enough...so it's a keyboard layout or language issue...23:33
Burritono keyboard layout I know of correlates23:33
mladouxMuwahahahahaha, I just got a pop up telling me that my "Windows" machine had a virus, lol23:33
YankDownUnderBurrito: Looks like a "normal" keyboard layout being transposed over a Dvorak keyboard layout...or possibly a different language...23:33
mladouxI don't even own a windows computer23:33
BurritoYankDownUnder: even that doesn't correlate. Spaces are still spaces in dvorak.23:33
Burritonot '7'23:33
Burritoand no letter is changed to "*"23:34
jon_nacc_, thanks for your help the yesterday.  i got pretty far, and 16.04 looks like its working, except the touchpad is not being identified23:34
YankDownUnderBurrito: Yes yes...but you know what I mean...23:34
nacc_jon_: ah nice!23:34
BurritoYankDownUnder: the solution he's using now is using Ctrl+R to paste login info (which reads as Ctrl+V to the program)23:35
YankDownUnderBurrito: So firstly, you'd want to make sure that VNC is interpreting things correctly - double checking the configurations...so both the client and server configurations...then work backwards from there, really...23:35
nacc_jon_: i've had an issue on my laptop that i've had to `modprobe -r i2c_hid; modprobe i2c_hid` after s&r to get my touchpad recognized/enabled. But generally it works for me23:35
Bashing-ommladoux: Close out and reboot the system is what I have done in a coupie of similar situations.23:36
Datso i got kubuntu re-installed23:36
Datlooks like i lost my programs but kept my settings it seems23:36
Dathowever it says wireless is disabled23:36
Dathow can i re-enable my wireless23:37
Datseems to work on windows but disabled in kubuntu23:37
Guest26197Okay, I read that page but I wasn't able to find audio channel controls for my onboard mic.23:44
jon_nacc_, thanks.  none of that made any sense to me.  can you explain it like i am 5?23:47
nacc_jon_: do you suspend and resume your laptop?23:48
nacc_jon_: or does your touchpad not work at all?23:48
jon_nacc_, oh, that used to fix it. now it doesnt recognize at all.  no entry in xinput23:49
Guest26197Would setting ; default-sample-channels = 1 in daemon.conf disable the second channel for my onboard Mic?23:49
nacc_jon_: hrm, i'd look in `dmesg` to see if anything obvious; unforunately, i'm about to start my weekend so i'm out :/ hopefully someone else can help23:52
MihasiHi guys. Quick question concerning laptops with hybrid graphics (Nvidia Optimus). I just installed 16.04 and would like to have my discrete GPU permanently disabled. I had some trouble installing Bumblebee and would like to avoid it for now, but if my vgaswitcheroo switch-file shows "DynOff" for the DIS entry, can I assume that the discrete GPU is really permanently off?23:53
nacc_Mihasi: seesmlike the best palce to disable it is in the BIOS23:54
=== bynarie_ is now known as bynarie
GrorcoHi I'm having an issue with when I switch users, then log back in as myself my mouse graphically disappears any idea what is causing this?23:56
Mihasinacc_: Right, but I have a 15.10 partition with a working Bumblebee configuration (after lots and lots of trial-and-error) and would like to still be able to use the GPU in there.23:56
=== jwheare_local_ is now known as jwheare_local
nacc_Mihasi: well, 15.10 goes eol in a few weeks anyways :)23:56
Mihasinacc_: Yep, that's why I'm slowly trying to transition. :P23:57
BadBoy09Hi how are you ?23:57
Ben64i don't think bumblebee is the right way to do that anymore23:57
Ben64nvidia-prime is in the repos23:57
mladouxBashing-om, or... I could just kill the process...23:57
MihasiSee, I have no idea. Some people say Bumblebee is dead/deprecated, others say version 4.0 is coming soon...23:57
BadBoy09how can I find deep web link ?23:58
