TameikiHello, on my laptop, I have a client.conf correcly set in /etc/openvpn. But my laptop auto-connect this after boot. It is possible to not auto-connect client.conf in /etc/openvpn after boot ?02:06
broken_Ben64, or possibly that little cable that conects it to the m02:06
broken_Ben64 since its pretty much new02:07
lesa2I mean, is there a way to prevent shutdown to kill all open apps before they "gracefully" close?02:07
Ben64lesa2: killing them is nice02:11
lesa2That would prevent "this is embarrassing " and "browser was not properly closed" messages and actual loss of data when there is an unsaved document.02:11

Ben64don't shut down with an unsaved document02:11
lesa2ben64: Heh, well, I have a script that does that on Xubuntu, but I was wondering if that could be than system-wise02:13
Ben64not sure what that means02:13
lesa2It means, if I have an open doc in Writer, it won't let shutdown do it's thing before I click Ok.02:14
reisiolesa2: you talking about a system running out of battery power?02:15
lesa2ben64: it is as if SIGTERM is never sent so apps are SIGKILLED.02:16
lesa2reisio: no I talk about clicking on shutdown button. It is too quick and doesn't let applications close gracefully.02:17
Ben64seems like the real problem is you hit shutdown when you have unsaved documents and things02:18
chrstphrchvzben64, lesa2: let me dare mention how Windows and OS X, if the OS is told to shutdown, any desktop programs prompt the user to save any unsaved work before the shutdown actually happens.02:18

matt|homehello. i just installed the latest version of ubuntu for desktop, and the first bootup into it was fine. but when i rebooted , the GUI pops up but there's no navigation or menu bars - its just a blank screen with the background. mouse pointer moves around but doesn't respond to right click03:15
matt|homei can move between X and the terminals too03:15
matt|homeanyone know what happened?03:15
reisiomatt|home: X cursor?03:16
Jack42Hello friends !03:16
matt|homeyeah , the default purple background shows up and the mouse/cursor moves around and responds03:16
matt|homebut there's no sidebars, its literally just the background03:17
YankDownUnderI've had this "crap" happen before. What I ended up doing - in order to force the "ethernet" to be seen was to go into BIOS, turn off COM/LPT ports (therefore freeing up the IRQ's and memory addresses), sometimes even turning OFF the onboard card (if it is an onboard card, if not, removing the card from the system) - doing several "cold" boots, then turning the ethernet back on in BIOS or replacing the card in the machine again -03:17
YankDownUnderand the system (the kernel) re-found the ethernet. Something worth thinking about as it's actually quick and easy to do...03:17
Jack42X cursor?03:17
reisiomatt|home: so it's an arrow?03:17

ubernetsYankDownUnder, thanks I will read it. But right now I just wanted a general idea of how long the general time slices are. I think it is specified as RR_TIMESLICE preprocessor directive in the kernel. Can I read that value from the cli or any other easy way to know what value was used?04:36

aienaJust wondering. I am creating a local web server for testing. I am in sort of a dilemma on how to fix apache permission denied errors. I know chmod 777 will work but it is the wrong way. I gain nothing by doing that. How do I seperate data from the web root and let apache process it. I have my files in the home directory. APache is configured to execute the code from a web root in the home dir.06:56
Tin_mani rely a lot on looking things up, and i usually find the answer to my problem, if given enough effort.06:56
aienaI read this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1225594/apache-13-permission-denied-in-users-home-directorybut still unclear06:57
Tin_manI'm from Kansas City, Missouri, but moved south to the country about 18 years ago little town in south east Kansas06:57
BackwardsNice to meet you Tin Man. :)06:57
BackwardsAiena Apache2 has a heirarchy to follow.06:58
BackwardsYou don't put files in the /home directory.06:58
aienaBackwards:  Can you explain more. I am new to this apache thing.06:58
aienaBackwards:  but then I need to be continuosly root to edit them06:59
Tin_manthere is a whole course on Apache, It is a very in depth topic, and would take a bunch of time to even tap the beginning workings of it..07:00
BackwardsYou put the files in /var/www/html/<sub-directories>07:00
plop_its_ellieyou can put the files whereever you want07:00
plop_its_elliethe webserver user just needs permission to access them07:00
BackwardsMake sure there is an index.html to protect you from scanning.07:01
aienaplop_its_ellie:  that is what I thought too. SO the user needs to be added to the www-data group so apache can write to a directory07:01
aienaI mean PHP sorry07:01
aienaalso not sure how to keep data out of the web root so apache cant execute it07:02
Tin_manaiena, might try some links to help the process: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/tutorials.html07:02
plop_its_ellieaiena, so if apache is running as www-data then the folder all the files are in must be owned by that user07:02
aienaplop_its_ellie: ah so owner needs to be www-data with chown07:03
BackwardsI use pUTTY and WinSCP for remote headless work on my servers. They are free softwares for Windows and they work perfectly.07:03
plop_its_ellieaiena, yes07:03
BassemTin_man, will give it a try07:03
aienanow how do I allow another user to edit those files say my home user I login as for convinience07:03
plop_its_elliewhy does Backwards need windows o.o07:04
plop_its_ellieaiena, the user you log in as?07:04
Tin_manok, i'm outta here, good luck all, and have a good day/night/eve/morn07:04
hilbillyadd your user name to the www-data group07:04
BackwardsI have many OS Plop. I make all of my money on Windows Boxen.07:04

Backwards$1,000.00/customer for Data Recovery is not a bad days work.07:05
plop_its_ellieBackwards, what do you do?07:05
plop_its_ellieoh yea07:05
plop_its_elliei forgot you were talking about that07:05
plop_its_ellieBackwards, for drives that are dead, not read?07:05
BackwardsI do Forensic Data Recovery.07:05
aienaplop_its_ellie:  so its best to su to www-data and edit the files or login as www-data on ubuntu to edit websites07:05
BackwardsDrives that are dead I change the Data Control Board.07:06
plop_its_ellieaiena, you can just use sudo instead of su07:06
plop_its_ellieBackwards, cool!07:06
BackwardsYou can be root and sudo -i07:06
plop_its_elliei assume linux would be the better platform for that sort of stuff tho07:06
aienaplop_its_ellie:  hmm ok I'm confused07:06
BackwardsPlop I use Debian for Data Recovery. You are correct.07:06
plop_its_ellieaiena, so example, $sudo nano /var/www/index.html07:07
plop_its_ellieBackwards, ah07:07
BackwardsMost Data Recovery methods are run in Debian.07:07
BackwardsWhen I use my Windows box, I reboot to a CD with my Debian software for the jobs.07:08
aienaplop_its_ellie:  hmm or the graphica sudo variant for other editors07:08
BackwardsOr just use another computer. I have about 20 of them here.07:08
aienaplop_its_ellie:  what if I switch projects regularly say I have 2 projects and I switch between them what would be a good strategy symplinking to one web root ?07:09
aienahmm actually I could create 2 sites in var/www but then switching needs modifying apache config each time I guess no workaround for that07:09
BackwardsData Recovery is a pains taking method and can take days.07:09
plop_its_ellieaiena, you can have for example /var/www/example.com and /var/www/example1.com /var/www/example2.com...07:11
plop_its_ellieyou are not running it on a headless server???07:11
plop_its_elliei recommend running it on a headless server07:12
BackwardsPlop that is just having two directories with an index.html and files to boot.07:12
plop_its_ellieno need for a gui, just do sudo nnao /var/www/.../index.html from the console07:12
plop_its_ellieoh you mean having 2 different configs for each site07:13
BackwardsPlop don't forget that if you don't have a GUI to see the results of your work, you are in trouble.07:13
plop_its_ellieidk how apache does it but (i usually use nginx)07:13
plop_its_ellieBackwards, i was talking to aiena about the gui stuff07:14

ChinHi, I'm having some trouble booting my Ubuntu 14.04 server. Directly after the bios splash I get a black screen with a blinking cursor. Smashing the shift button does not open grub. It boot fined previously, only getting the problem after installing updates and rebooting. Any ideas?08:13
ducasseChin: you should still be able to get the grub menu, try holding shift instead of spamming it. if that doesn't work, try escape.08:16
Chinducasse: still the same - smashing, holding it down, either/both shift buttons. If I do it with my bootable USB in I get an error flashing up about unable to find a fallback.efi - might that be relevant?08:18
BackwardsChin check this out: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Unable%20to%20change%20Screen%20resolution%20in%20Ubuntu08:19
BackwardsScreen resolution is a big problem with people who come here. I have seen this many times.08:21
OerHeksBackwards, sure, but Chin has no resolution problem, but an efi boot problem08:22
BackwardsWithout knowing the specifications of the video card and the box it is difficult to make a suggestion.08:23
OerHeksit's a server man ..08:23
BackwardsSame thing.08:24
BackwardsBox ; Server ; Computer08:24
ducasseBackwards: no, this is probably not a resolution problem08:24
BackwardsI have had this issue myself. I tried a different box and monitor and the parameters changed. A blinking cursor is indicative of that.08:25
ChinIt's used for graphical stuff as well (doubles as a kodi TV), but I can't even get into grub, let alone boot the kernel08:26
OerHeksChin, Could not open "\EFI\BOOT\fallback.efi" just wait a couple of seconds and the GRUB should show up ?08:27
BackwardsChin the link I showed you mentions that before you make any changes be sure to backup your system even if it means image your HD.08:28
BackwardsThe smallest change can be disaster.08:29
ChinOerHeks: Nothing shows up after waiting - the computer was sitting there all day at the blank screen while I was at work. That message only comes up on trying to boot the bootable USB, but only momentarily and then grub shows just fine and boots08:30
ChinJust doesn't work when booting the HD08:30
BackwardsChin, this may sound dumb but the screensaver maybe set to 0 seconds which creates a blank screen. I have seen that too. If  you can use a rescue disk and check the screen settings that may help you.08:32
akikit was a wrong decision to hide the grub boot menu by default08:33
akikChin: if you boot the live session, you can chroot into the installation and modify grub's settings08:34
BackwardsNever hide a menu. You can always set it off or on later.08:34

BackwardsMenus become a NAG if you don't want to see it. When I boot my Debian box the Grub Loader always shows up. I don't mind. To me it is a NAG but it is a lesson in patience and doing things the way the programmers set things in motion.08:38
akikBackwards: a nag screen to me is something that i *need* to do something with, for example answer a question again and again. grub menu has a timeout which you can set to 10 seconds and you don't need to do anything for linux to boot08:39
BackwardsChin, it may just be time to copy all of your important files and reinstall. Just copying all of your important stuff is the important thing right now. Slave the drive and you can check it too.08:40

k1l_Backwards: the 64bit patent is from amd. but intel uses the same technology. that is why its called amd64.09:00
YankDownUnderIn most instances, due to high traffic, THAT will be the error. You can always try to change the update sources to something different - if your machine is currently trying to hit the German servers, change it to the Russian servers or Japanese servers.09:00

blutEriC^^: But what is the return if /tmp/temp1 already exists; E.g. on a new login?10:19
StatelessCatblut: -f :)10:20
EriC^^good point10:20
StatelessCat'-f', '777', '2> /dev/null', 'cat /dev/urandom' solves almost everything ^^10:21
StatelessCatblut: seriously, what is the problem ?10:21
Triffid_HunterStatelessCat: presumably a race condition while identifying available hardware monitor devices during startup10:22
dennisj_hi, i just installed xenial as a VM on a centos 7 kvm host and while i can ssh into the VM fine the graphical console only shows a black screen.10:23
EriC^^it would give an error that the symlink exists, if he logged into tty1 for instance10:23
dennisj_when i boot the VM with the video driver "vga" i only get a black screen, when i use "cirrus" i get a purple screen saying "Ubuntu 16.04" followed by a black screen10:24
EriC^^right blut ?10:25
dennisj_any ideas what the problem could be?10:25
StatelessCatTriffid_Hunter: I see no race condition here. Just a error if the symlink already exist.10:25
blutEriC^^, StatelessCat: what are you hammering me about an issue? I just pointed out, you should add -sf instead of -s for the symlink.10:25
Triffid_HunterStatelessCat: nono the race is why it sometimes changes name after reboot10:26
EriC^^blut: ok, no need to be rude, just confirming the error it would cause. cheers10:26
Triffid_HunterStatelessCat: you may be able to find a more persistent symlink to it via /sys/bus/... somewhere10:26
blutEriC^^: Alright. I didn't mean to offend you.10:26
EriC^^blut: no worries10:26
StatelessCatblut: same as EriC^^, I just want to be sure what you had in mind when saying this (:10:27
hgutmannI'm currently trying to reset network interface names in 1604, the hardware of the system changed and now I get enp2s0 instead of enp0s0.10:28
StatelessCatTriffid_Hunter: ok.10:28
hgutmannDoes anyone know where the mac-addresses <-> ifnames are stored?10:28
hgutmannThere is nothing related in /etc/udev/rules.d10:28
hgutmannwell /etc/systemd/network is empty.10:29
StatelessCatthanks *10:29
akikhgutmann: that directory is the correct one10:31
StatelessCatblut: sorry for being unclear in my last answer. And thank you for tips>10:32
hgutmannakik, there are no files in that directory.10:32
akikhgutmann: doesn't matter. they'll be used when you create one10:32
OerHeks /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules10:32
akikhgutmann: here's an example: SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", ATTR{address}=="00:0e:c6:88:19:3b", NAME="eth1"10:33
hgutmannakik, I don't want to create new hw-address rules there since the image will be depoloyed on many systems.10:33
akikhgutmann: ok.. ?10:33
hgutmannOn many hardware-identical systems. Still I'd really prefere to have names of enp0,1,210:33
hgutmanninstead of system1 enp0,1,2 system2 enp2,3,410:34
akikhgutmann: you can go back to the previous style of interface naming with kernel parameter net.ifnames=010:34
hgutmannakik, could be a solution. But still it has to be saved somehere.10:34
akikhgutmann: well that's the directory10:34
hgutmannakik, I just moved the disk to the new system. On the old hardware I had enp0,1,2 now it is renamed to enp3,4,510:35
hgutmannTherefore I assume that the hwaddress are stored somehwere.10:36
akikhgutmann: oh10:36
akikhgutmann: i'm so tired of these systems changing from release to release10:36
hgutmannbut /etc/udev/rules.d is empty. same as /etc/systemd/network10:36
Triffid_Hunterhgutmann: probably in /var then10:36
Triffid_Hunterhgutmann: sudo grep -R enp0 /var, if no results try again with /etc10:36
hgutmannTriffid_Hunter, tried to grep around there, but so far no luck.10:36
akikhgutmann: how about /lib/udev/rules.d ?10:38
Triffid_Hunteryikes, it shouldn't be writing into /lib that casually :/10:38
akikthere shouldn't be configuration files in /lib10:38
akikbut that's how it is nowadays with systemd too10:39

theptrMaybe stupid question but it it possible apt-get install only get's arm64 packages from the ppa ?10:45
k1l_theptr: apt grabs the proper packages for you automatically. but the ppa needs to build arm packages.10:47
theptrk1l_, okay because when i do like apt-get install firefox it always takes the wrong one10:47
k1l_(which is not standard for PPAs to build arm packages)10:47
theptrk1l_, okay yeah because i use a Pine64 as a daily secondairy computer10:48
theptrk1l_, So if i understand you correct the apt-get command searches for the package and if there is nog arm64 i takes just amd64 ?10:50
k1l_theptr: no. if there are no proper architecture packages it will not grab anything.10:50
theptrk1l_, but now it grabs amd64 everytime ...10:51
hateballsure you havent enabled multiarch ?10:51
k1l_are you sure not to have added the amd64 architecture yourself?10:51
theptrIt's just the stock pine64 os based on longsleep ubuntu10:51
theptrbut its always when im trying to install firefox10:52
hateballtheptr: cat /var/lib/dpkg/arch10:52

theptrk1l_, yeah thats mybe the best thing to do10:53
hateballtheptr: what does apt-cache policy firefox say?10:53
theptrhateball, going to check10:54
abhvlit should not matter if i write rails_env=dev && rake command or rake command && rails_env=dev right? or does that matter?10:55
abhvlit just sets the env var for whole os?10:55
akikabhvl: no and no10:55
akikabhvl: && executes the following command if the first succeeded10:56
abhvlakik: thats fine. thats not the question.10:56
akikabhvl: and that just sets a shell variable, not for whole os10:56
akikit's local to that shell10:57
abhvlakik: thats fine. but if in same shell on first line i do rails_env=dev and enter and on second line rake command then this and my first example both are basically same right?10:57
theptrhateball, http://paste.ubuntu.com/19068184/ i also have to say that i have been trying to install 47.0 manual by dpkg -i10:57
akikabhvl: it's not the same if you use && on one line10:58
abhvlakik: both are just setting a env var ? can you please provide some link to doc?10:59
k1l_theptr: are you confused by arm64 and amd64?10:59
akikabhvl: if you run two commands on separate lines, there is not checking whether the first succeeded10:59
theptrk1l_, little bit it's because i had some errors that is was a amd64 package11:00
abhvlakik: yeah. but checking if first succedded or not is not point of discussion.11:00
k1l_theptr: dont install amd64 packages on arm. they wont work.11:00
k1l_theptr: then show the errors in a pastebin11:00
theptrk1l_, yes i know that11:00
akikabhvl: you lost me somewhere. that's what you asked11:00
theptrk1l_, it's just the apt-get install does something strange11:00
k1l_theptr: show the output11:01
abhvlakik: no thats not what i asked. the example confused you.11:01
theptrk1l_, it installs just okay en when i they to run the package i get an error wrong architecture11:01
abhvlakik: i did rails_env=dev enter rake command. someone tells me i should not do this. he says i should do rails_env=dev && rake command. do you think there is any difference between the two regarding rails_env part? not the rake command part.11:02
theptrk1l_, http://paste.ubuntu.com/19068520/11:02
abhvlakik: he says i should write it one one line using && . i asked whats the difference. he dont have answer.11:02
k1l_theptr: is that a mad64 package?11:03
theptrk1l_, i think so i just do a apt-get install firefox11:03
akikabhvl: actually what you should run is "rails_env=dev rake command"11:03
hateballabhvl: if you're just setting an env you dont need even need to press enter, you can just "blah=blah command"11:03
akikabhvl: that makes it so that the variable is available to the rake command11:04
confidentHello fellow Ubuntuers11:04
k1l_theptr: no. you said you isntalled it manually with dpkg loading that .deb package11:04
abhvlhateball: i can do anything thats not question. questios is, are those two things differenc or same?11:04
akikabhvl: i answered to your && question up there11:04
theptrk1l_, the manually package is = firefox_47.0+build3-0ubuntu0.16.04.1_arm64.deb11:05
abhvlakik: ^11:05
theptrk1l_, but that also doesn't work11:05
abhvlakik: but even if i executed them on two different lines still the env var is avilable to the rake command no?11:05
abhvlakik: both commands are in same shell. only lines different11:05
akikabhvl: yes but it's called shell variable if you don't use export11:06
abhvlakik: i dont need export.11:06
theptrk1l_, when i do a apt-get install firefox i get an architecture error when i install it manually it starts en then closes out of it's self11:06
k1l_theptr: "sudo apt purge firefox" then do a clean "sudo apt install firefox "again11:06

fpqcducasse, will that set the gtk stuff?12:56
ducassefpqc: yes12:57
fpqcducasse hmm also I deleted my fonts.conf that I dled earlier12:58
ducassefpqc: shall i pastebin mine?13:02
fpqcducasse your font.conf?13:02
ducassefpqc: yes.13:03
fpqcsure thanks13:04
fpqcand where should I install it?13:04
ducassefpqc: http://paste.ubuntu.com/ - ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf13:05
ducassefpqc: sorry, a sec13:05
ducassefpqc: http://termbin.com/dyh0 - pastebinit messed up.13:06
fpqcyeah, can't tell if it's any better directly13:09
fpqcI think it looks a lot better13:09
ducassefpqc: try a few different fonts and sizes to test.13:10
fpqcoh wow it looks a lot better13:10
fpqcI jacked up monospace to size 1413:10
ducassefpqc: \o/13:10
fpqcit's not like falling apart and horrible13:10
fpqcyeah whatever the problem was was what the problem was lol13:10
ducassefpqc: i'm honestly a bit confused by linux font rendering...13:10
fpqcducasse see the thing is, I'm using the ubuntu on windows thing, which doesn't have official support for X13:11
fpqcand dbus we only have working with a hack13:11
fpqcbut I really wanted to get tilda working for IRC purposes lol13:11
fpqcactually it's not looking much better lol13:14
fpqcat least with inconsolata13:14
ducassefpqc: yeah, well, i'm not surprised if that messes things up...13:14
fpqcducasse actually urxvt works like a dream13:14
fpqcwhatever, I'll get used to the ugly font on tilda13:15
fpqcI mean, ideally MS will come out with an actually working terminal emulator for windows eventually13:16
Qommand0rhaha, why would it actually work?13:16
=== Nishikino-Maki1 is now known as Nishikino-Maki
Qommand0rthere's 3rd parties for that13:17
fpqcQommand0r, nope13:17
fpqcthey all use conhost13:17
=== AvadaKedavra is now known as alazare619
Qommand0rMS always leaves lots of room for improvement13:17
Qommand0rso to say13:17
fpqcconhost is the Windows Console Host13:17
fpqcit does not support Xterm escape sequences13:17
fpqcinput or output13:17
fpqccurrently the bash.exe wrapper for the bash pico process runs as a Windows console application, so its direct i/o go to conhost.exe13:18
=== Quatroking_ is now known as Quatroking
fpqcIf you have an X server running, you can run bash.exe to start a terminal in X and then use that to bootstrap all sorts of nice and functional things13:18
fpqcbut the entry point is ugly and broken13:18
fpqcbc conhost basically13:19
fpqcidk whatever, I have irc working in tilda, as ugly as it looks, and I can open up urxvtc if I need a terminal for work so all is well13:21
=== primoz is now known as primozk
akikfpqc: how about conemu in windows?13:24
fpqcakik uses conhost13:25
fpqcit can only be improved when MS improves conhost13:25
fpqcI already asked maximus513:25
fpqcwhat that means is no mouse support for weechat, no 256color support, etc13:26
fpqcwhat you can do is run PuTTY in ConEMU as a GUI application, then connect that to sshd running on the windows subsystem for linux13:26
fpqcbut child gui applications in ConEMU are pretty buggy, and it's a lot more satisfying to be able to have a terminal and ssh if you want to13:27
fpqcI even have set up (using a cool program called cbwin by a guy named xilun on github) the ability to make it so clicking a link in weechat in tilda will pipe the url to my windows browser13:28
akikfpqc: putty in windows is able to accept mouse movements and clicks in elinks13:28
fpqcPuTTY can13:28
fpqcbut PuTTY can't be quakelike13:29
fpqcalso setting up sshd to run on windows requires a pretty annoying hack13:30
ducassecould we please get back to ubuntu issues?13:30
fpqcducasse yeah I came for ubuntu font stuff13:30
ducasse...on windows...13:30
fpqcyeah but windows isn't involved with this part to be frank13:31
fpqcis there any way in linux to do some sort of trace thing that shows you all of the config files that a program reads on startup?13:32
=== achilies is now known as theBOFH
fpqcor where its dbus config is or whatever13:32
=== theBOFH is now known as achilles
=== achilles is now known as achiles
=== achiles is now known as achilies
akikfpqc: strace does that, strace -e open13:33
fpqcso if I were going to do that with tilda13:34
fpqcI would do strace -e open tilda?13:34
akikfpqc: yes13:34
fpqccool thanks13:34
akikit'll show much more that the config files13:35
fpqcwill it show where its font configuration is?13:35
akikfpqc: try it?13:35

ducassejanust: the address comes before the host name in /etc/hosts13:46
janustducasse: oh sorry. i did in fact do this correctly, i just used the wrong syntax here... so that was not the problem13:47
ducassewwwi: the file would remain in memory, but you would need to save to another location13:47

wwwisometimes I get a message like this: system problem detected, program crashed. is this normal? I used to get it relatively often, but now it is rarer13:50
ducassecapum321: then do-release-upgrade either redirects or starts a new shell.13:50
ducassejanust: probably something like that13:51
ducassewwwi: look in /var/crash for any files to see what crashed13:51
wwwiducasse: ok13:51
akikjanust: if you use the dnsmasq dns server ( you'll also get entries from /etc/hosts13:52
janustok thanks ducasse, getent seems to work13:52
capum321ducasse: so it should be `sudo script -c do-release-upgrade file.log`13:52

ywcan someone suggest an irc channel for vncserver/ubuntu issues ?15:45
tatertotsyw is the port open?15:45
tatertotsi'm guessing your issue is you can't connect eh?15:46
tatertotsjust a wild guess15:46
tamarindtatertots: when you say mixed mode - what does it do ? allows multiple encryption to support wide range of devices ?15:47
ywtatertots: since you offering help, I installed vncserver as in https://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-vnc-server-on-ubuntu-14.04, port seems open (tcp6       0      0 [::]:5901               [::]:*                  LISTEN      1452/Xvnc4 ), but you are right - can't connect and see some errors in vnc log -  http://paste2.org/Jkc3e5jX15:49
tamarindtatertots: al2o3-cr thanks a lot for your time and knwoledge share15:50
ducasseyw: it's only listening on ipv6, according to that15:50
tatertotstamarind it lets you connect with adapters that are either a/b/g/n/ac ect15:51
RickyB98is it possible to make a directory accessible to the owner only, not even to root? maybe encrypting it or something, though i want to be able to execute processes from that directory15:52
tamarindtatertots: i selected b/g/n mode15:52
tatertotsbut it sounds like from what you describe you just simply forgot the password/passphrase15:52
rypervencheRickyB98: root has access to change anything.15:52
ywducasse - interesting, I have the same on my other system and can connect with no issues, are you suggesting to try IPv6 address?15:52
tamarindtatertots: i use the same password in my mobile and it connects fine15:52
RickyB98rypervenche: no exception?15:53
ducasseyw: you can try15:53
ducasseRickyB98: no.15:53
RickyB98encrypting wouldn't work either?15:54
RickyB98i mean, tell me why..15:54
rypervencheRickyB98: Not to my knowledge. You can hide things, sure, but anyone with knowledge and root can access it. If you encrypt a directory, they will have read access while it is decrypted.15:54
ducasseRickyB98: you can't hide anything from root, essentially15:54
davisim using 16.04 desktop. it appears that a local dns server is setup, but I don't see a /etc/named.conf file.  Where is the dns server ips stored?  If use the gui I see the entries for dns server, is the only place to change it?15:54
RickyB98okay gotcha15:54
tewarddavis: 'local nameserver' as in bind9 / named is installed and running?15:55
tewarddavis: /etc/bind/... for the bind9 configs.15:55
tewardif it's on a Desktop though it's probably via dnsmasq and not bind915:55
tewardand IDK where those ones are15:55
ducassedavis: try /etc/resolvconf/* and /etc/resolv.conf15:56
rypervencheRickyB98: What is your end goal?15:56
RickyB98okay this is the situation i'm trying to get around: someone asked me to do some stuff on their server (namely installing and administrating a minecraft server), and that's gonna be paid, though he's not paying in advance, because he wants to see job done... but at the same time, i don't want him to get the files and everything and just run away..15:56
RickyB98yeah i was about to explain :P15:56
davisteward: /etc/bind does not exist. /etc/resolv.conf only has localhost entry.15:56
tatertotstamarind so it's still not connecting after confirming you were using the correct credentials?15:56
RickyB98(btw, since "someone" is an actual username here, better clarify it's not him who asked haha)15:56
tewarddavis: then it's likely dnsmasq.  Does `pidof dnsmasq` return anything on the command line?  Does `pidof named`?15:57
tamarindtatertots: yes15:57
ducasseRickyB98: set it up on your own server, transfer it across when he pays.15:57
davispidof dnsmaasq is empty15:57
rypervencheRickyB98: If you are using a script or something, you could use something like shc to hide the script and give it an expiration date.15:57
RickyB98ducasse: i already have that set up, but my server isn't as powerful as his15:58
RickyB98rypervenche: is that an "apparent" hiding?15:58
rypervencheRickyB98: Or add a script that will delete everything the next day.15:58
RickyB98they can delete the script haha15:58
rypervencheRickyB98: Well, you could make it a binary so he can't see what it does, and then name it something. Or simply add it to the top of the normal running script.15:59
davisteward: ps auxw | grep dnsmasq shows that its running networkmanager15:59
rypervencheRickyB98: You could make it an at job and don't save your history. There are many ways.15:59
tatertotstamarind does it give any errors ? or does it just keep asking for the password over and over?16:00
tamarindtatertots: no errors, keeps asking for password16:00

bjrohanHelp. After my upgrade, when I start programs I get: Configuration file  not writable. Please contact your system administrator.16:12
bjrohanThing is, I did the upgrade several days ago, and everything was working fine until about an hour ago16:13
eelstreborwhy are there are all these different ways to build a kernel? and why are some people giving me grief over wanting to use the latest stable kernel from kernel.org?16:16
rypervencheeelstrebor: Because you're using Ubuntu, and it's a distro that's meant to be more stable. If you want to be using the lastest versions of software, then Ubuntu may not be the distro for you.16:16
PowerlessDoes anyone know how do i or print the number ofmy HP printer  printed pages16:18

Powerlesstatertots, yes16:19
tatertotsis this a laser or inkjet Powerless?16:19
Powerlesstatertots, laser16:19
tatertotsif you print a printer info/config page it should give you page count of the drum/fuser ect of the laser printer16:20
tatertotsthis can usually be done using the buttons on the printer and from the printers menu16:20
Powerlesstatertots, how do i print it? with windows there was buttom :P16:21
tgm4883Powerless: what printer?16:22
Powerlesstgm4883, HP laserjet p100516:23

Powerlesscant find it anywhere16:30

nico78Hello all :) how to flush dns cache in 16.04 please ? i dont find it16:35

nico78should i use systemd ?16:36
nico78sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean doesn't exist anymore16:37
Powerlesstgm4883, it opens the hplip..i will try again later..need to leave now..thanks for the help16:37
Powerlesstatertots, thanks for the help man16:37
nico78and /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart too16:38
geniinico78: Instead of trying to manually run old sysvinit scripts directly, use instead: sudo service <servicename> start/stop/status/etcetera16:39
nico78genii: thxs but  service nscd restart doesnt exist anymore16:40
tgm4883nico78: dns-clean does16:40
k1l_since 15.04 its systemd and that uses systemctl instead of service16:40
nico78tgm4883: not in 16.04 !!16:40
geniinico78: Use sudo service --status-all to get a complete list of services16:41
tgm4883nico78: funny, it's here on mine16:41
nico78??? actually i have a fresh install of Kubuntu 16.0416:41
tgm4883nico78: as previously mentioned, don't use /etc/init.d/ since that is the wrong location16:42

vachook that worked..but when trying to restart apache, I get: Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status apache2.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.18:55

thisguy123Hey guys, I've got a storage/partitioning related question.19:02
thisguy123I have several disks ranging from 1TB-10TB in size that I'm trying to format and mount. I set the /dev/sdx device as an ext4 filesystem rather than partitioning. Is this a bad practice?19:02
vachonacc_: Module mpm_prefork already disabled19:07
vachoModule mpm_event disabled.19:08
evil-trollthisguy123, I'm 83% sure you can't set the /dev/sda as an ext4 filesystem. I think that's odd. I'm 12% sure you have to partition something like /dev/sda1 as the whole drive. :/19:08

ikoniavacho: where did you get php19:18
cwolfordanyone have experience installing a canon pixma mp series multifunction? i have the printer working over wifi, but the scanner portion isn't working. the closest i got to getting it to work was sane scanner seeing it on usb and launching but then disappearing until i turned off the scanner; once i did that, the sane scanner program came back on screen. but then, of course, i couldn't scan anything.19:18
ikoniapilne: it's called "windows"19:18
pilneand i might need it... can i just installl windows to that partition, and everthing will be ok again?19:18
pilne(yes i know... sorry for being childish about not liking it much)19:18
vachoikonia: sudo apt-get install php libapache2-mod-php php-mcrypt php-mysql19:18
ikoniavacho: so you've installed mod-php, where/what repo did this come from19:19
vachoikonia: I initiated an AMI on AWS, and then ran that command.19:19
vachoikonia: Ubuntu 16.04 from AWS marketplace19:20
ikoniavacho: so whereever that came from (seems odd if thats ubuntu default - I don't think it is) you're running php in threaded mode, but the version/build of php you are using is not compiled for that19:20
vachoikonia: hmm..ok..I don't mind rebuilding the server. Just need a solid guide on how to get LAMP running.19:21
ikoniapilne: are you sure you didnt install php-fpm ?19:21
minimecpilne: If you install windows after a linux distribution, windows will f**k up the grub installation on your master boot sector. You will have to reinstall grub afterwards.19:21

vachoikonia: any thoughts?19:33
cwolfordminimec, i think he deleted his nvidia drivers.19:33
tatertotsgoddard you want to either use the local 'route' or the remote 'route'. you need to determine your default 'route' and use it19:33
ikoniavacho: what happens if you now install libapache2-mod-php and restart apache19:34
MonkeyDustnicomachus  -d means development, so no, you don't need it19:34
Bassemcwolford: ubuntu, with linux 3.19.0-64-generic then ubuntu, with linux 3.19.0-64-generic (recovery mode) and alot of options like that with different numbers19:34
tatertotsin most cases you want to just use your local 'route' and use the vpn simply to have access to network resources on it and behind it19:34
k1l_nicomachus: where does your release prompt link to?19:34
vachoikonia: that worked!!19:34
minimeccwolford: Yeah... but his initial problem was a gnome-session problem. No need to purge his (working!) X11 configuration.19:34
nicomachusMonkeyDust: I didn't think so, but when I run just 'do-release-upgrade' it says 'no new release foudn'19:34

ubuntu-matejust to summarize my last question. is there a safe way to boot to a second hard drive without interefering the first one?20:14
ubuntu-matesafe way to install a bootable second hard drive i meant.20:15
Bassemminimec: ok it done the upgrade now what to do20:15
Jordan_Uubuntu-mate: Is this a UEFI or BIOS based machine? Do you plan to boot the removable drive from other machines?20:16
chrisss123456anyone use avidemux on ubuntu 16.04?20:16
minimecBassem: Hmm... Verify that 'ubuntu desktop' is installed. 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop'.20:16
k1l_ubuntu-mate: the issue here is the user accidently doing stuff on the wrong hdd. but yes. you can do that20:16
ubuntu-mateJordan_U, BIOS, and maybe yes.20:16
minimecBassem: Also verify that you are using lightdm as login manager. 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm'20:17
ubuntu-matebut in the install screen I go to >something else...< and then select the sdc as boot loader target and select sdc partition, sda should remain intact by the installation process, right?20:18
Bashing-omubuntu-mate: Somelike like my system : http://paste.ubuntu.com/19109974/; then yeah doable !20:18

jhutchinschrisss123456: What's your actual question?20:19
ubuntu-mateI read that an option was to remove or disable the ``local`` HD and then try to install from a flash disk20:19
chrisss123456jhutchins: it's actually pretty much it. i used to have it in 15.10 but now it doesnt work, and is gone.20:19
jhutchinschrisss123456: "doesn't work" and "gone" seem mutually exclusive.20:20
Jordan_Uubuntu-mate: If you're sure that it's BIOS based, then yes all that you need to do is ensure that grub's boot sector is installed to the removable drive's MBR (and of course don't tell the Ubuntu installer to create or modify partitions on other drives).20:20
nacc_chrisss123456: http://askubuntu.com/questions/763846/why-has-avidemux-been-removed-from-ubuntu-16-04s-repository ?20:20
chrisss123456jhutchins: fair enough, sorry. i mean i can't install it via sudo apt-get  (there's no package). i think nacc_ has replied with a potential solution. thanks! :)20:21
jhutchinschrisss123456: Check backports.  It apparently had some problems building with the new release.20:21
jhutchinsnacc_: Heh.20:21
nacc_chrisss123456: still doesn't build, afaict20:21
nacc_jhutchins: ^520:21

=== Codmadnesspro is now known as Aprexer
nacc_chrisss123456: not sure; i'm just looking at the current status (it's only in yakkety-proposed because it's not building there, afaict). As jhutchins mentioned, i think PPAs are your only option right now20:22
jhutchinsYeah, I'm definitely behind the curvbe here, just ignore me.20:23
chrisss123456nacc_: jhutchins. i'll try the getdeb route and report what i find20:23
Bassemminimec: it still flashing at installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/bluetooth..20:23
ubuntu-mateJordan_U, should I mark sdc1 as ``/`` to indicate that will be the install location?20:24
minimecBassem: After what command?20:24
chrisss123456nacc_: mmh do you know of anyone using getdeb? trying to install the package manager called getdeb (as the instructions on the website) and the ubuntu softwrae centre says it's broken20:24
nacc_chrisss123456: no idea, sorry; i would probably just try the PPA (I think there's one mentioned in that link and there's at least one other i found in askubuntu reponses)20:24
nacc_chrisss123456: presuming you're willing to trust the PPA owners20:25
Bassemminimec: ubuntu-desktop20:25
jhutchinschrisss123456: No knowledge of the trustworthiness of this PPA: http://linuxg.net/install-avidemux-on-ubuntu/20:25
chrisss123456nacc_: jhutchins: alright well i'm not sure if it's a good idea to trust them or not... a bit of a noob20:25

Bassemminimec: ok20:26
jhutchinschrisss123456: You might also look at audacity.20:26
chrisss123456jhutchins: audacity is basically what i'm looking for, but for video files... avidemux was the best i found :/20:27
jhutchinschrisss123456: Ah, that's right.20:28

anabainIn order to solve some video card issues on 16.04, I've been told to remove xserver-xorg-video-radeon and use xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu instead. dpkg -r xserver-xorg-video-radeon does not work because xserver-xorg-video-ati depends on it, and I've also been told not to remove the ati package. What can I do, then?20:36
minimecBassem: hmmm... I don't know whether we should interrupt apt-get right now, but it seems stucked somehow. what does the 'top' command give you?20:36
Bassemminimec: e: could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock20:36
cecjaanabain: what were your initial troubles?20:36
minimecBassem: apt-get is using it at the moment...20:36
Jordan_Uanabain: Who told you to do this? I would expect that it would be easier to specify the driver via /etc/X11/xorg.conf (and I would also expect for amdgpu to be used preferentially where it supports your graphics hardware).20:37
Bassemminimec: e: could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11: resource temporary unavilable)20:37
rhaguHi I created a bash script: http://pastebin.com/hDvHkwbG  to check all video files in a folder for errors. I would like to alter it and move all files I do net get an stderr or stdout from to a new folder, how can I do that?20:37
minimecBassem: Do you have enough space on that partition? I see no reason, why 'apt-get' might hang during installation of a bluetooth config file.20:38
minimecBassem: type 'free'20:38
Bassemminimec: plenty of space 100 GB20:38
minimecBassem: Ok.20:38
anabainrefreshing issues, cecja, on kubuntu vsync compositor. Jordan_U, I also thought that, it seems strange that upgrading from 15.10 to 16.04 did not get the best suitable driver...20:38
Bassemwhat space do you want20:39
minimecBassem: So if you switch back to console F1, apt-get is still hanging?20:39
cecjaanabain: well with amd nothing really is expected.20:39
Bassemminimec: how to switch20:39
minimecBassem: ctrl+alt+f1 ;)20:40
anabaincecja, a workaround is to change rendering engine, anything other than openGL 2.0 works well, at least for non-3d stuff (which I won't be using, btw)20:40
Bassemminimec: same flashing dash20:40
Jordan_Uanabain: Please pasetebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and your /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you have one, which you probably don't).20:41
cecjaanabain: the problem is Xorg 1.18 is not compatible with the binary blob from amd... and the opensource driver is a bit buggy to say the least20:41
minimecBassem: Ok. switch back to F2 and do 'pidof apt-get'. Do you get a process number? Then do 'top | grep apt-get'. Does it do something?20:42
Bassemminimec: 1070220:43
cecjaanabain:  I had some success on my server by using http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Beta-Driver-for-Vulkan-Release-Notes.aspx the vulkan beta blob ... it worked with my non pro 26020:43

minimecBassem: So the process is there and it is 'active'. We can interrupt it, but we will have to recover the installation process with 'sudo apt-get -f install' afterwards. As you have no change on console F1, I consider doing that.20:46
Bassemminimec: then20:47
Bassemminimec: how to do that20:48
taorahello everyone, my wifi connection symbol is gone, instead ethernet symbol is shown on the system tray, while I am connected to wifi network.20:48

Jordan_Uanabain: I assume that means that you don't have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf? Please pastebin the output of "lspci".20:49

Bassemminimec: the screen dos not type on f120:52
minimecBassem: you can also open a third console with ctrl+alt+f3... or interrupt the running 'top' process with ctrl+c on F2 and then 'pkill' ...20:54
Jordan_Uanabain: Now that I think of it, the amdgpu driver does kms and so would in fact need to be selected before X has started (thus Xorg.conf change would not be sufficient).20:54

anabainJordan_U, then what's the next step, if any?20:55

anabainJordan_U, another thing: is there any lightweight alternative to dolphin that I can use without having to install too much gnome stuff (I'm also having freezing issues with dolphin)?20:58
Jordan_Uanabain: I'm having trouble figuring out how to match lspci output to support or lack therof from amdput, and I need to leave. Hopefully someone can help with that and if your card is supported by amdgpu then you *might* want to try blacklisting the radeon kernel module so that it doesn't load at boot, but that could also lead to a failure to load X or possibly lead to a failure to boot entirely...20:58
minimecBassem: Yes. You will get that low graphics mode again....20:58
Jordan_Uanabain: The ideal resolution would be for someone from #radeon to give you instructions, so I would try asking there.20:59
anabainJordan_U, ok, thanks20:59

TheNH813(PS: Just a sidenote, don't mention too much stuff like that here, it could be considered "off topic"21:51
HappySomethingSodoes anyone know why this could be? transmission says the port is open21:51
TheNH813Check your firewall21:51
TheNH813On the router21:51
TheNH813To make sure it isn't blocking p2p21:51
HappySomethingSoTheNH813: ok I'll try that21:52
TheNH813Some ISPs also throttle or block p2p traffic, but that's not too likely the case.21:52
TheNH813I'd say it's a firewall problem. Could possibly be a firewall problem on your PC also, but you said the port was opened.21:53

Bassemminimec: should i use ctrl c22:08
Guest96693i can get to my files22:08
minimecBassem: You see. we are caught in a circle... we cannot configure 'bluez', we cannot remove 'bluez'. If we cannot solve that 'bluez' problem, we cannot get a sane package status.22:08
gnudogeI don't do desktops sorry.  but if you ever need files let me know.22:08
Guest96693so what can i do22:08
Bassemminimec: isn't there like save mode where you can do any thing22:08
gnudogepull a backup of the home directory and reinstall?22:09
minimecBassem: Ok. We will 'pkill -9 dpkg' again....22:09

gnudogeexternal resource22:11
Guest96693how do i do that?22:11
TheNH813One second. Let me get a link.22:11
minimecBassem: That seems to be network related but should not have an influence on the running dpkg process, because that bluez package is already downloaded.22:11
Bassemminimec: eth1 transmitter encountered 16 collisions -- network cable problem22:11
Bassemminimec: it keep repeating on the screen22:11
TheNH813Guest96693: Do you have the disk or USB you used to install Ubuntu?22:12
Bassemminimec: what to do now22:12
gnudogeBassem: can you run      dmesg | tail -n 20       and paste that in a pastebin?  It might help us.22:13
TheNH813Guest96693: ???22:13
gnudogeBassem: and did you try running        pgrep -u root dpkg       ?22:14
minimecBassem: I am out of ideas. I would personnaly reboot one again, maybe remove all packages in /var/apt/archives and also everything in '/var/lib/apt/lists/'. then start over again with sudo apt-get update....22:14
TheNH813Guest96693: You there?22:14

ngomesi'm trying to make an portable aplication a package in order to merge to my system22:15

Startrek852If I compile git or make on Kubuntu 1522:16
Bassemgnudoge: paste.ubuntu.com/1911986622:16
ngomesthe issue i'm having is because its not from source , its already a binary file22:16
Bassemgnudoge: paste.ubuntu.com/1911986622:16
ngomesone file only22:16
TheNH813ngomes: Well, you could just copy the files to the right places.22:16
tgm4883ngomes: a portable application?22:16
TheNH813And create a shortcut in /usr/share/applications22:16
ngomestgm4883, i guess so22:17
tgm4883ngomes: what's the purpose of the application?22:17
Startrek852If I compile git or make on Kubuntu 15.10, then install it on Ubuntu 14.04.4, will they work?22:17
ngomesTheNH813, i know that , but i would prefer to make a package in order to keep track of it22:17
Startrek852*install them22:17
TheNH813Startrek852: No.22:17
TheNH813It won't work because of different library versions22:17
tgm4883Startrek852: you can, you'd need to build it in a pbuilder22:17
gnudogeBassem: are you using Windows file shares?22:18
ngomestgm4883, etcher ... its a usb iso creator22:18
tgm4883Startrek852: or better, in an LXC container22:18
Bassemminimec: how to remove all packages22:18
TheNH813ngomes: Ah, well I think I might be able to point you in the right direction22:18
ngomestgm4883, makes bootable isos on a usb disk22:18
Bassemgnudoge: i have windows on other partion22:18
minimecBassem: did you kill the dpkg process?22:19
gnudogeno, smb is a network file share.  do you file share at all?22:19
Bassemminimec: i rebooted22:19
gnudogeminimec: I'll get him there.  I think eth0 is crappin out.22:19
Startrek852tgm4883: How would I use an LXC container?22:19
TheNH813ngomes: http://askubuntu.com/questions/146343/how-to-create-a-deb-package-that-installs-a-series-of-files22:19

hammer25hey guys, I'm running a rsapberry pi with an SD card, and I want to write the contents of it to a USB drive. How to I tell what their corresponding device files are?22:21
JFlashhi, what would cause my ubuntu laptop to not see available wifi networks that all the other nearby devices see?22:21
tgm4883Startrek852: create an lxc container of 14.04, download your build tools/deps into it, build the package normally, then copy the deb files wherever you need them22:21
JFlashI have been plagued by connectivity problem on my laptop since I moved to this new bedroom, but all other devices work just fine22:21
TheNH813Well, I gotta go for now. Laters.22:21
Bassemgnudoge: what to do?22:22
rypervenchehammer25: fdisk -l and/or dmesg after you plug in it. Also, sudo blkid is really nice.22:22
YankDownUnderJFlash: Did this work before in a different location?22:23
JFlashsure, and it also works now if I get closer to the wireless router22:24
gnudogeBassem: try stopping smb with    sudo service smb stop22:24
JFlashbut the laptop is the only one that has this behavior, of all my other devices22:24
gnudogeBassem: then try reproducing the error22:24
minimecBassem: gnudoge: I see what you mean, but the packages should already be on his computer in /var/cache/apt/archives. Installation failed with 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop'. I think the download of the packages went well. It was during installation, where the bluez package failed to install.22:24
Startrek852tgm4883: How do I create an LXC container?22:25
YankDownUnderJFlash: Depending on the card/driver, there may be ways to make adjustments to the "gain" on the wifi in order to get a better signal. As well, bear in mind that "wifi" is a radio signal - there are objects that can reflect/deflect or obstruct those signals.22:25
gnudogeminimec: that stands to reason.22:26
Bassemgnudoge: first command unrecognized service22:26
minimecBassem: gnudoge: So we tried to 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' after a 'pkill' of the installation process and a reboot. That '--configure -a' failed again when getting to the 'bluez' package.22:26
gnudogeoh,  try      sudo service smbd stop;22:27
JFlashYank, sure but how come this issues only affect the laptop. I can use the android tablet and phone from a much further corner of the room and I get great speeds22:27
JFlashYankDownUnder, while the laptop has to be by the door and even gets spotty connection/ terrible speeds22:28
YankDownUnderJFlash: Have you tried putting the laptop in different areas of the room to see if you get a better signal?22:28
Bassemminimec: what to do now22:28
JFlashYankDownUnder, I probably dont even get a signal bar at all if it's not close to the door22:29
YankDownUnderJFlash: "By the door" - so there's interference inherent in that...the door jamb, the cables running through the wall, the joists, etc etc etc...just saying. Thinking logically.22:29
gnudogeBassem: did you try        sudo service smbd stop22:29
KwiatuszynCan someone help me ? :)22:29
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: may be22:29
ngomesso,  there is no tool to make deb packages easy22:29
JFlashYankDownUnder, sorry let me rephase that22:29
JFlashYankDownUnder, the router is downstair . "by the door" means the closest location to the router that doesnt erequire me to leave the room22:30
Bassemgnudoge: i told you i get error unrecognized service22:30
YankDownUnderJFlash: So have you tried different areas in the room to see if the signal gets stronger?22:30
gnudogeI asked for 2 different outputs.   1).   service smb stop  2).  service smbd stop22:30
JFlashJFlash, as I said, because the other areas in the room are farther away, I dont even geet a signal bar22:31
KwiatuszynOk :) I have a problem with VNC. I host TS3 server and i will create music bot but ts3 client on VNC all time crash after a few hours. I don't know how fix it :/22:31
JFlashYankDownUnder, sorry, I just called you JFlash22:31
Bassemgnudoge: smbd stop/waiting22:31
gnudogegood, I think it may have been crashing the connection22:32
YankDownUnderJFlash: So then, with that established, have you tried just adjusting the antenna on the router slightly to see if that will affect the broadcast of the signal?22:32
JFlashYankDownUnder, but bad signal is only one of the problems , btw22:32
gnudogeminimec: what is next step?22:32
tatertotsJFlash you mentioned connectivity issues since you "moved to this new room" suggests no connectivity issues in the 'old' room and also suggest environmental22:32
JFlashYankDownUnder, sometimes I cannot even detect most of the available networks22:33
jaccessHi there, if everytime I use some cmd I actually want 'cmd -a' is there a way to set up so I can just type cmd but it actually runs cmd -a. For example, "wget [url]" should actually run "wget -c [url]"22:33
Kwiatuszyngnudoge do you know how can i fix it ? :)22:33
JFlashYankDownUnder, than I have to restart several times, like in a lottery, and at some points it does find the network that I need it to find22:33
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: what was the question22:33
gnudogeBassem: did you try to reproduce the initial error with samba off?22:33
minimecBassem: gnudoge: So let's guess that samba really had something to with it (I don't think so). we still need a 'clear' package status. So we have to 'sudo dpkg --configure -a'. Otherwise we cannot work with the package managment anymore.22:34
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: I have a problem with VNC. I host TS3 server and i will create music bot but ts3 client on VNC all time crash after a few hours. I don't know how fix it :/22:34
YankDownUnderJFlash: As I mentioned in the beginning, there are generally ways of making adjustments to the hardware properties of the wifi card that you're using - but that is dependent on the hardware and driver - which is worth researching.22:34
JFlashtatertots, what I was sayin by that is that I tested and this problem is related to proximity to the wifi router22:34
Bassemgnudoge: how?22:34
JFlashtatertots, but the other devices work fine at much further distances22:34
tgm4883JFlash: what nic?22:34
Bassemminimec: you want me to try to configure again22:34
minimecgnudoge: By the way. We appreciate your help.22:34
JFlashwhat is a nic?22:34
tgm4883JFlash: what wireless card do you have22:34
YankDownUnder"nic" - Network Interface Card22:35

gnudogeKwiatuszyn: what does    tailf /var/log/messages            say when it happens22:35
HappySomethingSowhy can't I seed with transmission? the port is open22:36
YankDownUnderJFlash:  the first you'd want to determine is the make/model of the wifi card - open a terminal and type: sudo lspci | more ====> scroll through the list and locate your wifi card.22:36
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: you can use tail to look at the end of a file and tailf to follow the tail of a file.22:36
JFlashtgm4883, http://hastebin.com/fohanudeta.css22:36
gnudogeminimec: no worries22:36
gnudogeminimec: sounded like broken packages, normally network down issues.22:36
Bassemminimec: so what to do22:37
tgm4883JFlash: what about 'lsb_release -r'22:37
JFlashbtw, google tells me my intel card and ubuntu dont have always got along with each other, however I fail to understand what I can do about it.22:37
minimecBassem: gnudoge: Question is. Can we clean the package cache, with 'sudo rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin' and 'sudo rm *.* /var/lib/apt/lists' and start over again with 'sudo apt-get update'?22:38
JFlashtgm4883, 15.422:38
Bassemminimec: ok will try22:38
YankDownUnderJFlash: Google may have resolved the issue - not necessarily to YOUR liking...22:38
Bassemminimec: should we do it in save mode?22:38
tgm4883JFlash: that shouldn't be what it told you22:38
minimecBassem: Gve us a moment...22:38
hammer25Ok, now that I have identified the two devices, the command "sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/sda" should copy the contents of the SD card (mmcblk0) to the thumb drive, correct?22:38
Bassemminimec: ok i'll wait for you22:38
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: try reading through the error logs in /var/log/ for more details about the creash if there isn't a report.   you can also run htop and type the letter 's' on the process name to strace for further diagnostics22:38
JFlashtgm4883, sorry 15.0422:39
tgm4883JFlash: but in the event that you did type that in correctly, I would try 16.0422:39
tgm4883since 15.04 isn't supported anymore22:39
ubottuUbuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) was the 22nd release of Ubuntu. Support ended on February 4, 2016. See !eol, !eolupgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/vivid22:39
gnudogeBassem:   if you reboot you may need to stop smbd again22:39
JFlashok, so this have a chance to fix my issue?22:39
Bassemgnudoge: i'll do what you say22:39
tgm4883JFlash: posibly22:39
JFlashok I will try that22:40
gnudogeminimec: I would use a find instead of rm22:40
JFlashanything else before I leave to upgrade linux?22:40
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: Do you want to log error from the ts3 client ?22:41
rypervencheminimec: Don't ever use rm with * like that. Go with find and then when you are sure of the list it gives you, add the -delete flag to it.22:41
minimecBassem: gnudoge: Could you give him the command you would execute: That might help.22:41
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: in a paste bin I'll take a look at it22:41

gnudogeminimec: other than using absolute paths huh?  kekekekek22:54
Bassemand here the page keep moving in the channel22:54
gnudogethanks Kwiatuszyn i'll check it out.22:54
Bassemgnudoge: wait sec22:55
gnudogerun as root22:55
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: I thank you22:55
Bassemgnudoge: how?22:55
YankDownUnderfelipec: It may be that other drivers are required for your system. Have you checked?22:55
gnudogewill in ubuntu land we run as sudo.  shall I tidy up?  one sec22:56
minimecBassem: 2nd one ^^ see above oist by gnudoge. In words. We rename the 'lists' folder to lists.bak, and then create a new 'lists' foler and give it the approriate 'permissions' with chmod.22:56
felipecYankDownUnder, no I did not. How do I check it?22:57
YankDownUnderfelipec: In the "Software and Updates" centre, there is an option to check for "other drivers"...22:57
Startrek852tgm4883: let me get to my computer.22:57
ark-knightis there an easy way to set up automatic installation?22:57
felipecYankDownUnder, OK, give me a minute please22:58
gnudogesudo su; cd /var/lib/apt/; mv lists lists.bak; mkdir lists; chmod 0755 lists; pwd       Bassem what is the last line of output from that?22:58
gnudogewont work22:59
gnudogesudo su     then the strings22:59
tgm4883Startrek852: once you install that, then you create the container via "lxc launch ubuntu:14.04 <containername>". It will download about 100MB for the image (although will be faster if you need to do it again as the fiels are now local)22:59
tgm4883Startrek852: then you can get in the container 'lxc exec <containername> /bin/bash' and install whatever you need and build the packages23:00
felipecYankDownUnder. It says: Unknown: Unknown. This device is using an alternative driver. Using Processor microcode firmware for Intel CPUs from Intel microcode (prtopietary) "cheched"23:00
YankDownUnderfelipec: So does it say "Apply" or similar?23:01
Bassemgnudoge: root@bs-desktop:/home/bs#23:01
vookIs there an irc channel other than #lxcontainers that is appropriate for LXD questions?  It's pretty dead in there.23:02
hammer25so i copied the files on and sd card to a usb drive using "sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/sda", its taking quite a while with no indication it is working. is there a way to see what is happening?23:02
gnudogeI mean23:02
gnudogeBassem: you should cd into /var/lib/apts23:02
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: The audio driver is crashing23:03
=== Guest71045 is now known as defcon73
KwiatuszynBut you know how can i fix it ?23:03
Bassemgnudoge: and do the last command sudo su; cd /var/lib/apt/; mv lists lists.bak; mkdir lists; chmod 0755 lists; pwd23:03
gnudogeBassem: I'll guide you through them23:03
gnudogejust get into /var/lib/apt/23:04
Bassemgnudoge: now im on apt folder23:04
tgm4883vook: you could ask in here if it's a ubuntu question23:04
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: is it a third party audio driver?23:04
felipecYankDownUnder: "Apply Changes" button, but I can not clik on it23:04
gnudogemv -iv lists lists.bak23:04
KwiatuszynNo it's a pulse audio23:04
gnudogeAre there third party driver avalible?23:05
Bassemgnudoge: you talking to me?23:05
gnudogeBassem: mv -iv lists lists.bak23:06
felipecYankDownUnder: I mean, It is disable23:06
YankDownUnderfelipec: Right. Well. Something you can try - in order to "jolt" the kernel into possibly recognising the USB ports, is to shut down the machine, get into your BIOS, turn off the COM ports - and possibly the LPT port, and then boot again into Ubuntu and see if anything changes...and by the way, how are you testing to see if your USB ports are accessible?23:06
Bassemgnudoge: done23:06
gnudogeBassem: mkdir lists; chmod 0755 lists23:07
gnudogeminimec: what nao?23:07
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: is it an onboard soundcard?23:07
Bassemgnudoge: يخىث23:07
Bassemgnudoge: done23:07
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: i think yes. It's soundcard on my VPS server23:08
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: so its virtual..... hmmmm hosting provider perhaps?23:09
Bassemminimec: what now23:09
felipecYankDownUnder: Sticking a usb unit into the three ports.23:10
gnudogeBassem: I believe you where using ' dpkg --configure -a ' but I just wanted to chekc with minimec23:10
YankDownUnderfelipec: Er...what KIND of USB - a flash drive? A what?23:10
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: I don't know :/ How can i check it ?23:10
minimecBassem: gnudoge: Did he remove the packages in /var/cache/apt/ (I did not follow). I yes. I would first try to 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' (just for a check) then 'sudo apt-get update' then 'sudo apt-get upgrade'23:10
gnudogefrom cli run 'alsamixer'23:11
gnudogeBassem: will you make sure that all ofthe files are in .bak form?23:11
felipecYankDownUnder: Kingston dtse9 8gb, dell 1tb portable external hard drive, Huawei cell phone...23:12
YankDownUnderfelipec: Well, the "mass storage" would be more than enough to test. Either which, try what I suggested about BIOS.23:12
felipecYankDownUnder: OK, I will do it. Thanks23:13
* gnudoge goes on break back in 15; Kwiatuszyn you can pm if you need to.23:13
Bassemgnudoge: how>23:13
gnudogeBassem:  just use ls inside the directories we have modified the files/directories in.  just look and make sure they are whatever.bak23:14

gnudogelooks good23:17
gnudogeBassem: then in /var/lib/apt the 2 .bin should be in .bak form23:18
asgharpolocan i programming for android with monodevelopment in ubuntu ?23:18
Bassemgnudoge: i did ls in the /var/lib/apt23:19
gnudogeand pkgcache and srcpkgcache.bin are in .bak?23:19
gnudogepkgcache.bin.bak  srcpkgcache.bin.bak23:20
minimecBassem: gnudoge: I agree that creating an empty 'list' folder was a good thing to do, and yet we might still have all the packages in '/var/cache/apt/archives', including the cache (.bin) files in '/var/cache/apt'. I think we would have to remove them too.23:20
gnudogeIt should just be .bak or old.file.bak and will be ok.23:21
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: i cannot open alsamixer from terminal :.23:22
Bassemminimec: what to do now23:22
gnudogeits not a bandaid in this case it is whole roll of gauze.  ;)23:22
minimecBassem: well. We cleaned the package list. So we have to do 'sudo apt-get update'23:23
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: you can  'apt -y install alsamixer'23:23
Bassemminimec: i did the command23:24
Bassemminimec: wont we do the config command23:24
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: E: Unable to locate packeage alsamixer23:26
minimecBassem: Well we will see now. We try a 'sudo apt-get upgrade'. I did not follow all the posts... If the 'bluez' package is still in /archives, it will not work problably.23:26
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: apt install alsa-utils23:26
Bassemminimec: how to check if it's there or not23:27
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: E: Unable to locate packeage alsa-units23:27
minimecBassem: If 'upgrade' doesn't work we do 'sudo dpkg --configure -a'23:27
Bassemminimec: can't we do it first23:27
minimecBassem: We can...23:27
Bassemminimec: im afraid to get into all this again23:28
gnudogeKwiatuszyn:  its   alsa-utils23:28
gnudogedpkg -> apt23:28
gnudogebut they are more <==> but I wont go that far23:29
minimecBassem: You might... To be sure I would 'sudo rm *.deb /var/cacha/apt/archives'. My way... )23:29
Kwiatuszyngnudoge it was installed23:29
Bassemminimec: ok done the update command23:30
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: now alsmixer will give you detailed information about the drivers23:30
Bassemminimec: now what23:30
minimecBassem: apt-get upgrade23:30

Bassemminimec: e:sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code 123:32
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: It was already installed. Still he wants to run alsamixer shows me that I can not: /23:32
minimecBassem: On what package?23:33
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: checking23:33
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: the alsa-utils will help in this case.  moar options = may not break23:34
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: So why i cannot run alsamixer ?23:34
pizzasomeone used hollywood terminal?23:34
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: I can not produce the same issue.  My vps with ubutnu 16.04 64 was able to bring up alsamixer without any issues.  You may need to contact the service provider for further details.23:35
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: you type alsamixer in the terminal ?23:35
minimecBassem: How is that possible... 'sudo apt-get update | pasteinit' ... I want to see your repository list...23:36
ywneed help with x11vnc, on a new ubuntu 16 vm did these steps http://paste2.org/Fgmebcf7 and can't start vnc :(23:36
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: now that the alsa-utils are installed this may help with TS.  And yes.  I installed alsa-utils and brought up alsamixer in cli.23:36
ywtatertots ^23:36
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: cannot open mixer: No such file or directory23:37
gnudogehmmm you typed                  alsamixer23:37
Kwiatuszynyep :/23:37
gnudogeVery strange indeed23:37
Bassemminimec: http://paste.ubuntu.come/1912608923:38

minimecBassem: Why would you have all these 'http://httpredir.debian.org' repositories???23:40
Bassemminimec: ??23:41
Bassemminimec: i donno any thing23:41
Bashing-omBassem: minimec What gives " Err http://extras.ubuntu.com jessie/main Sources" trying to mix ubuntu and debian sources ???23:42
minimecBassem: I mean there are a lot of 'http://httpredir.debian.org' repositories in your list. What did you do to get then? >> notice Bassem23:42
minimecBassem: I mean there are a lot of 'http://httpredir.debian.org' repositories in your list. What did you do to get then? >> notice Bashing-om23:43
Bassemminimec: honestly donno23:43
minimecBassem: Ok.. Boy. That explains a lot... Give me a moment....23:44
Bassemminimec: ok23:45
gnudogeKwiatuszyn: that didn't go so well.  It told me to "Please inform the person helping you." so now I am completly lost on this issue.  I think your VPS hosting provider should be informed.  This is 16.04 ubuntu correct?23:45
Kwiatuszyngnudoge: nope 14.0423:46
gnudogeshould still work.  It may be a repo issue, but if alsamixer is not working in the terminal I would try it in byobu, then if that fails look at the strace.23:46
Bashing-omBassem: minimec : Clean up the sources ' cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list ; tail -v -n +1 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* ' to see what we have to do ???23:47

tyrickI ran boot-repair and got the following:23:58
tyrick=================== Suggested repair23:58
tyrickThe default repair of the Boot-Repair utility would reinstall the grub-efi-amd64-signed of sda2, using the following options:        sda1/boot/efi,23:58
tyrickAdditional repair would be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s    use-standard-efi-file rename-ms-efi23:58
hammer25mutante: cool. what other things get sent to the background?23:58
gnudogehammer25: saves time to backup a file that small.23:59
