codepython777if i have a bunch of scripts that apt-get 100s of packages, how can i get this to a more efficient state? Is there a tool that helps with this?00:03
Bashing-omminimec: I am always amazed at what I do not know ... I have had some - and still do - great teachers .00:03
gnudogehammer25 I think its a great idea00:03
mutantecodepython777: you can use "dpkg --get-selections" to get the current list of packages and save it to a file. then you can copy that file and use it with "dpkg --set-selections" on another host. and it will install the exact same packages00:04

daxI usually just back up ~/01:52
blndidiotthat's home01:52
daxso yeah, if you didn't put stuff elsewhere, you don't need to back up stuff elsewhere.01:52

cwolfordok, so i was working with tatertots earlier today regarding the scanner portion of my canon pixma mp560 not working. he basically told me that the library i was installing didn't have all the necessary dependencies for my scanner to work properly. he also said that because it wasn't on the official supported scanner list for 16.04, i was basically "pissing in the wind" to try and get it to work. however, i just found this page01:57
cwolford(https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/amd64/libsane-common/1.0.25+git20150528-1ubuntu2) which--since it's for xenial--leads me to believe that my mp560 is supported...which means i'm more confused than ever.01:57

swolfhey guys, need some help with partitions. Kinda in a fix here01:59
cwolfordswolf what's your question?02:00
swolfHey guys, don't ask me why but I really need to install Windows 10 in a dual boot with Ubuntu 14.04. I'm currently running Ubuntu in a dual boot with Kali Linux 2.0 and my Windows will be replacing Kali. To be honest I know how to remove, resize and create a new partition but I'm confused about one single thing. /dev/sda2 is my Ubuntu and /dev/sda5 is my Kali. Can I get rid of /dev/sda4? In that way when I can resize my Ubuntu parti02:01
swolftion to give some extra space to Windows after deleting Kali. It is just that /dev/sda4 is right in between those two and I'm not sure if deleting that is wise. Please help me out of this fix. Feel free to ask me anything if I sound confusing. Thanks guys.02:01
swolfmy current partition: http://imgur.com/RKTQk6W02:01
forgxswolf: What is contained in /dev/sda4?02:02
swolfI'm not sure, the file system is unknown and has a flag of bios_grub02:03
cwolfordforgx and the partition is only 1MB02:03
forgxcwage: what?02:04
forgxcwolford* (sorry cwage)02:04
cwolfordforgx i was just adding to swolf's info02:04
forgxswolf: I'm not an expert, but it's probably kali's grub02:04
swolfassuming it is kali's grub, then there won't be any problem deleting that as i'm deleting kali. right?02:05
swolfand even if i don't delete it it should not matter as I use the Ubuntu's grub02:06
cwolfordswolf, nope, not if you're getting rid of kali and it *is* kali's grub02:06
forgxI assume that, yeah. But I'm not an expert hahaha02:06
swolfcwolford: so I can delete it along with Kali right?02:07
cwolfordswolf sure you can.02:07
cwolfordswolf but i'm no expert either02:07
Tin_manswolf, if you don't have a bunch of time, and tweaks to Ubuntu, just back up your /home directory, let windows 10 have the entire disk, then reinstall Ubuntu02:07
blndidiotswolf: I would leave /dev/sda4 alone .. installing windows isn't going to touch it anyway.  boot_grub is for BIOS booting from what I'm reading.  You'll probably need to do update-grub from a live session after installing windows to regen your boot configs.  also, you need to do any partition resizing in a live session as well.. preferably using a live image of the same OS version whose partition you are resizing02:07
swolfthank you so much cwolford and forgx02:07
cwolfordswolf, hold your thanks until it you don't screw anything up lol02:08
swolfyea, ihavethe live cds ready with me. After reading everyones comments this is what I plan to do; 1. back up everything, 2. Delete dev/sda4 and sda5, 3. Resize sda2, 4. Install Windows 10 and 5. Fix grub02:10
blndidiotyou are probably right that the partition flagged with boot_grub is kali.. I'm not seeing a ton of info about it googling.  I don't want to tell you to delete it and then be wrong though :)02:11

blndidiotthere is some info out there, but not a whole lot02:13
swolfblndidiot: i'll just take my chances as I'm already backing up the system. So there is nothing to lose as such (apart from getting a pain in the ass if I'm wrong). Plus this seems like good opportunity to learn new shit ;)02:16
blndidiotswolf: if you installed Ubuntu first, which created /dev/sda1 2 and 3, and then later installed kali.. it would have taken sda4 and 5.. so I think it's only logical that this is what's going on02:16
blndidiotyour ubuntu partition should be fine02:17
swolfyup I was just about to add the same thing02:17
swolfalright guys, off I go with my experiment. I'll update if everything goes smoothly (assuming you guys are still around)02:18
Startrek852Hello? Anyone?02:18
blndidiotyou will likely need to reinstall grub entirely after you resize your partition.  so keep that in mind.  I went through this when I resized my linux partition and just remembered about it02:20
blndidiotjust thought I would throw that in before you got started02:20

rypervenchebrohan: Ok, so you have to do a manual fsck04:05
rypervenchebrohan: Type "sudo fdisk -l"04:06
rypervenchebrohan: Do you know which disk you should be looking at?04:06
brohanrypervenche: another line: Failed to start File System Check on /dev/disk/by-uuid/7e2620as-c000-4efo-8bcd-2fdc9d90ifd704:06

rypervencheactually, that will work for us04:07

brokendrcfhowlett, yep, seems that  that still requires write permissions04:22
brokendrcfhowlett, I know nothing though, assume I am a 5 year old - but not one that understands stuff04:23
rypervenchebrohan: Did it say that message?04:23
brohanrypervenche: yes, did say it could take 2 minutes, still waiting04:23

cwolfordit's a bit of a long story which is why i didn't post it all. however, i'm running 16.04 64bi, canon pixma mp560 multifunction printer (printer works perfectly, trying to get scanner to work). i was told this printer/scanner wasn't on the "officially supported list" but i found some documentation. i'm downloaded a sane-pixma-backend tar.gz file and extracted it. now i'm confused as to what i'm supposed to do.04:43
cwolfordi've been fiddling with this for a few days now. at one point, while connected to USB, the XSane image scanner application saw the scanner and then the application disappeared. i powered off the scanner and then the Xsane application popped up on the screen again. from what i understand, the driver installation that i performed before didn't have all the necessary dependencies which may have been deprecated.04:49

folfk_sze[work], isn't that the way it is supposed to work?07:22
k_sze[work]folf: I thought it's supposed to install the exact same versions of packages.07:23
hmmmhey there07:24
hmmmi'm facing a problem - broken xorg on a fresh installation of lubuntu07:24
Blue1howdy tex07:24
k_sze[work]Otherwise I could have just done `dpkg --get-selection`, `dpkg --set-selections`, and then `apt-get dselect-upgrade`07:24
hateballhmmm: Describe the nature of the brokenness07:24
k_sze[work]folf: for what it's worth, apt-clone actually bothered generating an installed.pkgs file, with the exact version numbers listed.07:26
k_sze[work]So it's really puzzling that `apt-clone restore` didn't use that version information.07:26

ducassek_sze[work]: nor am i sure if older packages are actually kept in the repos.07:30
folfk_sze[work], I see the point. Not clear from the documentation what to expect...07:30
k_sze[work]ducasse: older packages are expected to be kept in the repos, at least for some period of time. That's why apt-get has a syntax to install exact version: http://askubuntu.com/a/9202107:31
NorrPLhi guys07:32
ducassek_sze[work]: yes, i know _some_ older packages are kept, but i'm not sure about _all_ older packages.07:32
hmmmoh, and no internet there07:33
NorrPLif someone installs LTSP Cluster on ubuntu server?07:33
NorrPLi've problems with booting thin clients07:34
k_sze[work]ducasse: reproducibility would be a PITA if older packages are not kept.07:37
k_sze[work]I think the Ubuntu maintainers would understand that need well enough.07:38
NorrPLanybody can hep me?07:38
k_sze[work]And we're talking about Trusty, an LTS release, too. I would be less surprised if the regular non-LTS releases didn't have old package versions kept in the repos.07:41
ducassek_sze[work]: iirc, it depends on the mirror how long they keep packages. if you depend on specific versions of all package i suspect you are expected to install from a local mirror or cloned images, for example.07:41
k1l_k_sze[work]: ubuntu doesnt update the version numbers, but backport heavy bugfixes and security fixes to the same version that was released with the ubuntu release07:42
k_sze[work]Sure, in which case I can see how apt-clone could complain that it can't find a specific version. But we digress.07:43
k_sze[work]the fact is that apt-clone didn't even try to get the exact version.07:43
ducassek_sze[work]: no, it doesn't, and as i said most users would not want it to.07:43
k_sze[work]k1l_: that's not true in the absolute sense.07:47
k_sze[work]There are some packages that ubuntu actually upgrades and changes version number.07:47
k_sze[work]Not just backporting fixes.07:47
k_sze[work]e.g. firefox07:48
ducassek_sze[work]: you can put in a feature request to the developers, as i'm sure many people would find it useful. or even better, provide a patch :)07:48
k1l_k_sze[work]: yes, some few, like browsers, because backporting doesnt work with that much version upgrades and no patches from upstream but its security issue with that sort of program07:48
hmmmoh great, i don't have lxde-common, wtf07:56

borisetobenederes: I did that a while back, let me see if I can find the site I followed. It still runs grub, but it recognizes that it's waking up from hibernation and just continues to boot up.08:34
ducassebenederes: on suspend your os is already in memory, on hibernate it needs to be read from disk.08:34
borisetobenederes: so grub would start anyway, but would check if it's waking up and just continue loading the OS instead of showing you any options. Is that what you want to achieve or just skip the grub overall?08:35
benedereswhated to skip grub when resuming from hibernation08:37

_dreamerthere are no graphic drivers installed, I use integrated graphics, probably intel08:55
_dreameri've edited the /etc/default/grub with line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset acpi_osi=\"Linux\"" still nothing09:09
_dreamerthe screen is still black09:09
_dreameri've also executed sudo update-grub command09:10
vahe1hi all :)09:13
_dreamerIntel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) this is my graphics card09:13
_dreamerthe computer is a dell optiplex09:14
_dreamerHas anyone else had problems with black screen after installing Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS?09:16
Dat_dreamer: not i09:18
_dreamerI have tried x64, x86, never had this problem before09:18
_dreamerI can access the machine through ssh, but the main screen of the server is black09:19
_dreamerOne thing i've noticed is that my "install" has a lot more options in the Software Selection list than usual09:22
_dreamerWhen I installed it on a virtual machine it didn't look the same09:22
_dreamerCan this have something to do with it?09:22
Dat_dreamer: not sure maybe try getting to the terminal alt+f209:24
_dreamerare u shitting me? XD09:24
_dreamerit worked09:25
_dreamerthank you09:25
_dreamerwhy would you like a black screen as default? I don't get it09:25
hateball_dreamer: do you have a full working gui now?09:25
_dreamerwell, terminal, scince it's server09:25
_dreamerbut yes09:25
hateballah yes09:25
_dreamerit displays now09:26
_dreamerthank you  :)09:26
hateball_dreamer: if you remove "quiet splash" from your boot, does that change anything?09:26
hateballI'm thinking if it tries to set resolution for plymouth via KMS and that somehow... breaks things09:26
_dreamerIm gonna install x64 now instead and see if it works09:27
_dreamerI am not a linux guru so you are probably right, gonna try it again and see if it will run09:27

rockyhhello! I tried to modify the MOTD in Ubuntu 14.04, creating an executable in /etc/update-motd.d/. Even if I give it a high number in filename, e.g. 99-test, the row that should be printed by that file is not at the end of the MOTD, but always before "No mail" and "last login". Is there a way to print *after* those lines?10:06
nils_rockyh, I think those aren't part of the motd, it's controlled by pam10:11
turtletownHey can anyone help me? im having issues with rufus trying to configure my usb10:11
rockyhnils_: you mean the "No mail" and the "last login" lines are controlled by pam?10:12
nils_rockyh, check /etc/pam.d/login10:12
rockyhnils_ it is a configuration file and yes, it contains references to mail and last login (which is optionally printable). But how to say it to print an additional message?10:14

_dreamerhateball: I would like to make an iso of everything that is currently on my system at a given point10:26
benederesi have dualboot.When resume from hibernation grub starts10:26
benederesi wanted to skip grub when resuming from hibernation10:27
OerHeksbenederes, likely it starts to boot, not leaving hybernate?10:27
benedereshibernate works fine but by grub when resume10:28
DandelsI'm quite sure you can't skip grub when resuming from hibernation10:28
benederesso hibernate-shut down whake up-grub-resuming session10:28
ducassebenederes: you've been told - you _need_ to go through grub.10:28

hateball_dreamer: Clonezilla is good for that10:32
Dandelsbenederes, it's supposed to10:32
DandelsThat parameter just tells the swap device to resume from. Resuming from hibernation doesn't skip grub10:32
DandelsResuming happens later in the boot process10:32
rajiv1Is there any command in ubuntu 16.04  by using which i can update my system without any disturbances? I mean while i updating and there is a network failure, then it automatically retries the update process.10:32
benederesso its no way to skip grub when resuming hibernation ?10:33
ducassebenederes: no.10:33
hateballrajiv1: apt will download all needed packages before it tries to install them10:33
benederesso any what can i do its to set timer to less seconds (timer=1 sec for example ) ?10:34
Dandelsbenederes, there's a GRUB_TIMEOUT value for it in /etc/default/grub.10:34
benederesi know,readed config file already )10:35
rajiv1hateball: Some times it stops downloading the packages due to network connectivity or other issues. Is there any command by using which, the system automatically retries the process?10:35
RedMan00Hello my friend is having troubles getting Kega-Fusion on 16.04. Is it in the default repos?10:36
hateballrajiv1: it saves the packages to a cache, so if you run apt upgrade/full-upgrade again it will resume downloading until all needed packages are cached locally10:37
hmmmwell, thanks for nothing10:37
hateballrajiv1: there is no built in logic, you'd have to script it10:37
rajiv1hateball: That means its normal to happen like this. I have to run the process again.10:38
hateballrajiv1: there is the option -o Acquire::Retries you can use, but even that might fail10:38
hateballif you set it to 10, and it fails 11 times10:39
hateballrajiv1: "If you notice that apt-get isn't able to finish downloads you can increase the number of retries that it should perform before it finally gives up. This is done by adding APT::Acquire::Retries=20 to /etc/apt/apt.conf." from http://www.infodrom.org/Debian/doc/maint/Maintenance-pkgmaint.html10:40
rajiv1hateball: when i am installing a particular package and during which some problem occurs such as network failure or some other in the middle. then again by using "apt-get install <<package>>" what happened?10:42

RyllixI am going to be installing a Nvidia GPU into a computer running 16.04 today, do I need to reinstall Ubuntu after I add the GPU into the tower?14:34
ducassequinten_k: i'm not that familiar with booting on ppc, it's been years since i had one, so i can't remember how the image needs to be set up. try looking for a ppc-specific channel.14:34

RNevillegood morning, I would like to be able to delete files using the file manager (graphical interface) with elevated privileges (admin)14:46
RNevilleneed to remove several files at once in the "boot" directory14:46
nacc_RNeville: what files?14:46
jat-cloneRNeville: gksudo14:47
RNevilleI have an encrypted boot drive, and I have to manual delete files (from time to time) in the boot directory to make room for upgrades14:47
nacc_RNeville: use `apt-get autoremove`14:47
nacc_RNeville: don't manually delete files (IMO) in /boot14:47
RNevillenace apt-get autoremove doesn't work on my computer14:47

RNevilleducasse, I would like to use dpkg and apt to remove these pakages, but in past I couldn't get them to work14:59
tgm4883RNeville: IIRC, autoremove doesn't work for kernels14:59
nacc_RNeville: do you have a link to that bug?14:59
RNevilleI don't know the bug report number, but my configuration problems with having an encrypted boot drive are well documented15:00
ducasseRNeville: it's quite easy, we can help with that. i occasionally need to do this myself on my laptop with encrypted /boot.15:00
RNevilleI don't really know enough to communicate effectively on this subject, sorry15:00
RNevilleany help appreciated, but simply running these commands ( in question) hasn't solved the problem15:01
RNevilleI have had to manual remove files to make room for upgrades15:01
ducasseRNeville: if you just delete the files, there will still be lots of leftovers from the packages.15:01
RNevilleI believe you ducasse , but it has worked for sometime now, and it was the only solution I found that worked15:03
RNevillehowever I do believe in doing things correctly15:03
debug0x1I'm guessing here: 14.04 is safer then 16.04?15:04
debug0x1safer = less exploits15:04
ducasseRNeville: it's your machine, you are free to do whatever you want :) in short, you find the names of the packages with dpkg -l, then purge them with sudo dpkg -P or sudo apt-get purge15:06
ducassedebug0x1: why would you think that?15:06
RNevillethx ducasse, I do appreciate the help, truly15:08
RNevilleducasse, I will try your suggest, it does sound the way to go - doing things correct is alway best15:09
ducasseRNeville: if you're trying to remove a package you have already manually deleted files from, you might need to use on of the --force options with dpkg. if you can't figure it out come back here. :)15:10

hdonhi all :) when i open a .crt file i get some program with an Import button that shows some details about the certificate. when i click import, i am prompted for a password for "Gnome 2 Key Storage." but i don't have this password. any way i can save the old key store and reinitialize it with a new password?15:49
quinten_khdon, have you tried your normal passowr15:50
kulelu88when I check the kernel version of my 14.04.4 LTS, why does it show the kernel as being V.3.16 and not V3.13, which is supposed to be the kernel for 14.04? Is there any reason why the 3.16 kernel is used?15:51
nacc_!hwe | kulelu8815:51
ubottukulelu88: The Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack15:51
nacc_kulelu88: you presumably at some point installed the (vivid) hwe stack15:51
hdonquinten_k, yep15:52
kulelu88nacc_: this is a fresh install of 14.04. I didn't do a dist-upgrade at all15:52
nacc_kulelu88: note that on august 4, all hwe stacks otehr than 14.04.5 will cease to be supported (aiui)15:52
nacc_kulelu88: is it an install of "14.04.1"15:52
nacc_kulelu88: my understanding is the first dotrelease became the official release (again aiui only)15:52
kulelu88nacc_: install of "14.04.4".15:53
nacc_kulelu88: (sorry, not vivid, utopic)15:53
kulelu88nacc_: so when 14.04.1 was released, they bumped the kernel up?15:55
nacc_kulelu88: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes#LTS_Hardware_Enablement_Stack readiung that, the 14.04.4 image seems like it should have had an even more recent kernel and X stack than what you are seeing15:55
kulelu88I see what you're saying nacc_ . 14.04.4 should ship with 4.215:56
nacc_kulelu88: that's how i'm reading it, i definitely might be wrong :)15:57
kulelu88I wonder if I can bump up the kernel myself ... Does this usually break things nacc_  ?15:57
nacc_kulelu88: you mean installing the latest hwe stack? it *shouldn't* break things (esp. the kernel side, as you should be able to boot back to the older kernel). The X side might be trickier, as it's not possible to have two X installations in parallel (aiui)15:58
kulelu88looks like I'm not the only one seeing 3.16 as the 14.04.4 kernel: https://askubuntu.com/questions/753369/latest-kernel-for-ubuntu-14-04-415:58

asathoortesting ...16:00
* joelio used linux-generic-lts-xenial all the time on 14.04 - so could get later Ceph kernel rbd 16:01
joelioit works just fine16:01
joeliouse the metapackage (linux-generic-lts-xenial) and you'll get all the updates too16:01
naccjoelio: agreed, it should; but there are always corner cases :)16:01
joelionacc: should what?16:02
kulelu88joelio: so you also upgrade the kernel all the time?16:03
naccjoelio: should just work16:04
kulelu88if yes, can you tell me what apt-get commands you use to do it?16:04
joeliokulelu88: if on 14.04 - apt update && apt install linux-generic-lts-xenial16:04
joeliolinux-generic-lts-xenial is a metapackage16:04
joelioso that has dependencies on the current 4.4.x kernel in xenial16:05
joeliowhen xenial gets updates, the dependencies get updated on the metapacakage16:05
kulelu88joelio: that is all? there is nothing else to upgrade as well?16:05
joelioso when you apt update and upgrade, it'll get the later kernel in the 4.4.x tree - if one exists16:05
joeliokulelu88: no, update-grub handled by it too - so it'll also update the grub menu list16:05

kulelu88joelio: which kernel is 4.4 running on? 16.04 LTS? should I rather upgrade to the 4.2 kernel?16:06
joeliokulelu88: it depends what you need and what the hardware supports16:07
joelioI just use 4.4 as it's got later Ceph support - but I do it with a lot of other devices now16:07
joeliojust to get a later kernel.. but tbh - there's not a lot in it16:07
joelioif you *need* a later kernel, the lts is great way to get it16:07

joeliobut you may interleave the output of several commands if you do it in parallel - if that's acceptable16:25
joelioif it's serial, then no bother, it'll write one after another16:25
dirtylifeandtimeelaborate? not sure I understand16:25

joeliothe otuput of each process will be writing to the end of the file16:26
gony_how can i record audio streaming in my desktop from terminal ??16:26
joeliodirtylifeandtime: that will interleave the outputs, so you may get output from command a, then output from command b, then commmand a again, then command c etc16:26
joelioit depends on if it's parallel and if that really matters16:26
EriC^^interleave? isn't it interweave?16:27

joeliodo one thing, do it well16:46
dirtylifeandtime"GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs."16:46

Pinkamena_DI type it often so I wanted to remap some 30 character hostname to like 5 chars locally17:06
naccPinkamena_D: you could just use a shell alias?17:08
beginnerprompt program17:08
Bashing-ombeginner: "program" does not cpmpute; read " cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades " . There are only 3 options .17:10
beginnerbashing-om : command not found17:10
beginnerbashing-om : i am a real beginner17:11
Bashing-ombeginner: We were ALL beginners on one time .. no sin there . I too am at some point on the learninbg curve .17:12
beginnerbashing-om: it sais prompt=normal17:13
akikPinkamena_D: if you can use the localhost ip you can just add the shorted name on that line in /etc/hosts17:14
Pinkamena_Dakik, the remote ip address changes every week or so17:15
akikPinkamena_D: it's not so clear how you need to access the shorter host17:15
Bashing-ombeginner: beginner That "normal" is correct . Does terminal command ' sudo apt update ' complete with no errors ?17:15
beginnersudo apt updatee17:16
Pinkamena_Dso basically I just got the cheapest possible hostname and little server at home for development purposes17:16
Pinkamena_Dits long of course, I just wanted to remap it in the same way that hosts does17:16
Pinkamena_Dbut instead of from hostname to ip, I want from hostname to hostname17:16
akikPinkamena_D: can you access all the needed services through the localhost ip ?17:17
Bashing-ombeginner: The command is ' sudo apt update ' .17:17
beginnerbashing om : done... everything updated17:18
beginnerbashing om : yeah i write it here instead in konsole...17:18
Pinkamena_Dnot sure what you mean needed services? basically I need to type now $ ssh someuser@some-really-long-annoying-hostname.com I want to make it so I only have to put $ ssh someuser@shortname17:19
Bashing-ombeginner: That updates/syncs  the list files .. now to see what results in updating the system ' sudo apt upgrade ' . completes with no errors reported ?17:19
beginnerno errors17:20
beginnerbashing-om: no errors17:20
akikPinkamena_D: is some-really-long-annoying-hostname.com the hostname of the machine you have at home or somewhere in the cloud? what is your client machine? what is your server machine?17:21
Pinkamena_Dserver at home, client is a laptop could be at any internet connected location17:21
Bashing-ombeginner: K .. and now .. no proprietary driver in use .. ( proprietary stuff is non-ubuntu) . what returns ' sudo lshw -C display '. In a pastebin site so you do not flood this cahannel . Do you require guidance to use a pastebin site ?17:23
akikPinkamena_D: ok maybe you could just use shell aliases in that case17:23
akikPinkamena_D: or $HOME/.ssh/config in which you can setup aliases17:24
akikPinkamena_D: i think .ssh/config fits your use case17:25
Pinkamena_Dssh config? thats interesting, I will take a look at it17:25
beginnerbashing-om: yes it would be great17:25
Bashing-om!pastbinit | beginner17:26
akikPinkamena_D: in it you can have "host server-a" and tell it to connect to "hostname some-really-long-annoying-hostname.com"17:26
Bashing-om!pastebinit | beginner17:26
ubottubeginner: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com17:26
akikPinkamena_D: so would just use "ssh server-a" and it connects to that long hostname17:27
Bashing-ombeginner: ' sudo apt install pastebinit ' . then, ' sudo lshw -C display | pastebinit ' . the result is a URL back in your terminal . Pass that complete link back here and we can access the file .17:28

minimecBassem_: Well there is not really much to help. You were able to install 14.04... The installation process for 16.04 is the same.17:46
minimecBassem_: If the installer gives you the option to replace the existing linux installation, choose that. The installation routine will do the rest.17:46
Bassem_minimec: i mean i dont want to miss the dual start up for ubuntu and windows...and shouldn't i delete the old ubuntu also....some one help me to install 14.04 because im new to ubuntu17:47
beginnerbashing-om: yes you're right... i hope so too!! thanks again17:47
Bashing-ombeginner: Sure .... let me know how it ends .. ( I had my fingers crossed ) .17:49
minimecBassem_: As long as you don't touch the windows partition, you will have the same dual-boot choise at boot. The 'grub' boot manager will handle that. You don't have to delete the old installation. The partition will be reformatted.17:49

JakesDenHello, I have a problem with my keyboard. It visualy has a us layout but the keyboard is programmed to have the uk layout, is there any software that can make it change the incoming keys to what they would be on a us keyboard?18:00
mutanteJakesDen: you should be able to change your keyboard layout somewhere in the settings of your window manager / desktop18:01
mutanteJakesDen: from the keyboard point of view it's just where which stickers are. it's not programmed there, just the OS picks one18:02
Bashing-omJakesDen: Keyboard functional as is now ? what results ' sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration ' To have the wizard re-configure ?18:02
JakesDenit detects it uk but now i changed it to force us keyboard layout18:03
JakesDenthe thing is even if no keyboard layout is set it will automaticly be picked up as uk18:03
JakesDenand the battery compartment hardly even fits the 2 aaa batterys in it and now makes my keyboard wobble as the batterys are springing out18:04
JakesDenwould tightning the spring help?18:04
mutantemaybe the "even if no layout is set"-part is from language settings (en-uk vs. en-us), picking a default18:05
Bassem_minimec: install ubuntu alongside windows 7 or erase disk and install ubuntu?18:05
Bassem_minimec: or something else18:05
mutanteJakesDen: personally i like them to not have batteries, good old cable. they never run out in the wrong moment and it's not like i'll ever be able to set further away from my screen than the cable  length and still be able to read text18:06
minimecBassem_: Alongside Windows7! Otherwise, the whole disk will be reformatted, including windows 7. You can also choose 'something else' and choose the partitioni manually.18:07
JakesDenwell it seems like this wireless keyoard is not so wireless\18:07
JakesDenyou need the wireless reciver litraly touching it in order for it to work18:07
mutanteJakesDen: yea, that's kind of a good example ... the wireless part just adds extra things that can break and waste time.. imho18:08
Bassem_minimec: https://s31.postimg.org/py5x1hkd7/Screenshot_from_2016_07_12_18_08_01.png18:08
JakesDeni might mod the keyboard and give it a usb cable for use as a hub to conect a reciver inside the device and also power the keyboard18:08
mutanteJakesDen: sounds good.. then you can also connect things like external usb disks at the keyboard and they have the power18:09
Bassem_minimec: https://s32.postimg.org/vcn4g3605/Screenshot_from_2016_07_12_18_09_12.png18:10
Bassem_minimec: what to choose18:10
minimecBassem_: That seems ok. Use the (21.5) partition as root, and the (64.4) partition as /home. Format at least the (21.5GB) partition.18:10
JakesDennow i can jut imagen a youtube how: @Welcom back to the wired to wireless keyboard converion chanel@18:10
JakesDengreat now the rechargeable battery has floung across the room18:11
minimecBassem_: You have to choose the 'Mount point' for the mentioned partitions.18:11
minimecBassem_: '/' stands tor the 'root' partition.18:12
minimecBassem_: If you don't format the 54.4GB partition and choose /home as mount point, you will even preserve your user data from the last installation.18:13
JakesDenow i just stepped on a logo brick18:14

minimecBassem_: watching the picture you sent me, you can reuse the partitioning, that was made by the previous 14.04 installation. It is even a pretty good partitining table. All you have to do is to choose a 'mount point' and format at least the '21.5GB' root partition. that's all.18:26

k1lCodFection: any adapters involved? what driver is installed?18:32
CodFectionVGA.. no drivers18:32
minimecBassem_: the 64.4GB partition will be '/home'. You can choose to format the partition yourself. Not formatting the partition will me, that all user data of the previous 14.04 installation are preserved.18:32
CodFectionxrandr --addmode VGA1 1400x90018:33

ubottusaitoh183_: phpmyadmin (source: phpmyadmin): MySQL web administration tool. In component universe, is extra. Version 4: (xenial), package size 3841 kB, installed size 24418 kB18:56
saitoh183_during the setup, it ask for the web application...after that it is suppoe to prompt to add the application password to create the db in mysql...this part doesnt happen18:57
minimecCodFection: The 'xrandr' way is indeed worth a try. use 'gtf' to get the 'Modeline' for the desired resolution, like 'gtf 1920 1080'.18:57
minimecCodFection: then add your result as 'newmode' like this: 'xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync'18:58
saitoh183_i tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin, but all i get is the web application choice18:58

I burned a cd but while reading directions on the internet it says to go to the BIOS, which I did, and go to the sectionboot, well there is no "boot" section. and i'm affraid something went wrong burning the cd. I just burned onto the ubuntu OS nothing else. Any help is much appreciated19:13
Exagone313tahder: just so you now, you can use a USB key instead of a cd/dvd. Can you send the link of what you're talking about?19:14
mutantetahder: when you burn the CD there should be something to make it a "bootable" CD19:14
Exagone313it probably says how to change boot order or to enable legacy boot19:14
mutantethere might also be a "BIOS" or "UEFI" switch that changes everything about boot options19:14

Please register with NickServ (see /msg ubottu !register) and use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!19:31
saitoh183_i just took that link for the pic...but i found one with php7 and mariadb 1019:32
DJonesBassem: Depends on your usage, I'd say irssi, but everybody has differnt opinions19:32
Exagone313saitoh183_: so phpMyAdmin is installed, you don't fail the installation or get blocked, right?19:32
naccsaitoh183_: ok, i just installed phpmyadmin in a lxc container in 16.04 and it prompted for db info19:33
saitoh183_its just that it doesnt do the db creation step19:33
ioriasaitoh183_, are you installing phpmyadmin from ppa ?19:33
naccsaitoh183_: as i mentioned, you aren't using an official version (afaict)19:33
jianu81scan you help me19:33
jianu81si have 4 gb of ram19:33
jianu81sis there any reason to use a 64bit ubuntu ?19:33
saitoh183_i tried both19:33
naccsaitoh183_: only one is supported here19:33
k1ljianu81s: there is no reason to not use 64bit if your cpu can use 64bit19:34
naccsaitoh183_: and going back and forth without properly purging can lead to issues19:34
jianu81sdoes it use more space than 32bit ?19:34
k1ljianu81s: no.19:34
saitoh183_didnt go back and forth...i tried just doing sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin19:35
k1ljianu81s: if you dont want to have traffic jam. do you want a 32 line highway or a 64line highway?19:35
Exagone313saitoh183_: http://dpaste.com/1GTV03B19:35

ericb2Exagone313, this is stable version19:36
k1lericb2: no advertising here.19:37
Exagone313ericb2: this isn't in the ubuntu repo19:37
saitoh183_this is what i got in my default.conf19:37
ericb2no, but that's an official site, and this software is known already. I just adapted it to Ubuntu and Raspbian19:38

saitoh183_and i already have phpvirtualbox working with a simlink from /usr/share/phpvirtualbox/ to /usr/share/nginx/html/19:38
Exagone313saitoh183_: yeah, it's not complete, and it should be named nginx.conf. but add my alias, you should understand how is it cinluded in a server{} block19:38
k1lericb2: this is how software lands in the ubuntu repos. see that procedure19:38

ericb2k1l, maybe you know OOo4Kids too. This is the same basis, and I'm the main dev too19:39
saitoh183_but again, i dont think the problem is nginx...the problem is the installation that is not doing the portion of creating the phpmyadmin db in mysql19:39

saitoh183_yeah cuz i had a access denied error with root @localhost and i decided to start from scratch and since then, i cant get it to the db portion19:47
naccsaitoh183_: if i had to make a guess, that means you didn't actually purge the db settings and so it's not asking to reconfigure what is already configured; try `dpkg-reconfigure -plow phpmyadmin` ?19:48

k1lamsb: we played that game now often enough. you can ask in #ubuntu-ops to lift that mute if you use ubuntu one day and need support. thanks20:10
saitoh183_nacc: well that is what i dont have which is suppose to be created during the installation20:12

daum_hi guys - i have 3 network cards that are all on different networks.  my em1 and em3 both have public internet.  I can ping out to any ip fine over em1, however over em3 i can only ping/ssh/curl other ips on the exact same network.  I can't get outside of it's own subnet of ips though as well nothing from outside can reach it on that interface unless it's on the same subnet..  Any idea what i'm doing wrong? here is an example of my setup:21:38
daum_ http://pastebin.com/m8skcvPc21:38
k1lparanoidabhi: any reason to run a 4.7 kernel? that is not a standard ubuntu one21:40
j625-xi have an interesting problem, i have a 64-bit tablet computer - it has an external keyboard option, but i do not want to use the keyboard. I have it working pretty well without one - but the one challenge that I have is that I want full disk encryption for this device, but I would need a physical keyboard to unlock LUKS! I'm exploring strategies for not needing the keyboard, i can put the key on a USB without a passphrase (not cool).21:41
j625-xshould i possibly look at some kind of chain booting setup?21:41
Jordan_Udaum_: How do you want this to work? If a connection is initiated from this host to an internet addressible ip what interface do you want it to use?21:41
Kiritoo.O where is mpv pulling youtube-dl from21:43
KiritoIt's apparently not actually the youtube-dl package21:43
k1lparanoidabhi: and i would look out for an bios update for your laptop. there are some bugs in the bios, the syslog tells21:43
deepesham getting the same error21:43
Jordan_Uj625-x: You can have /boot/ be unencrypted and include enough in the initramfs to use an on screen keyboard (the former being easy, the latter likely nlt so much).21:43
deepeshJAVA_HOME command not found21:44
daum_for majority of the time em121:44
daum_Jordan_U, if the connection starts on em3 it should start/finish on it21:44
j625-xJordan_U: that would be IDEAL! But is there an on screen keyboard that doesn't require X?21:45
Jordan_Udaum_: A connnection initiated from that host doesn't "start" from any interface though, which was why I asked.21:45
* Kirito really wishes more motherboards would support FDE21:46
KiritoI have never actually come across a single laptop that actually supports it. </sigh>21:46
daum_Jordan_U, right for that i was just testing with pings/curls specifying the em3 interface21:47
daum_my main thing is for if an outside host connects over the ip that em3 is on, it should complete over that ip21:47
daum_right now it seems to work just fine if from one host on that subnet i do a curl --interface em3 yyy.yy.yyy.98/ready, but if i try it for example from my local computer it doesn't get any response21:49
Kiritoand I am under the impression that Ubuntu's mpv package has youtube-dl statically built into it somehow o_O21:49
Jordan_Udaum_: I've never dealt with a situation where there are essentially two "default" routes on one host before. Network namespaces might help.21:49
daum_Jordan_U, should the server at least respond to pings on it's em3 public ip?  just trying to decide if there is an issue with the network outside the server, or if this is more of a server setup itself21:51
noobfaceokay, im trying to make a bootable cd of ubuntu. The cd is burned but i can't figure out what additional software i need to get it running. Also my current OS seems to be having issues thus the reason why i can't do this on a usb (note- it is not possible to make a bootable usb at the moment)21:51
Ben64noobface: you boot off the cd if you burned it properly21:52
Jordan_UKirito: 1: Statically including libraries is against Debian/Ubuntu packaging guidelines and 2: youtube-dl is a terminal based app, not a library 3: Is written in python and 4: is packaged in the youtube-dl package. So I find that unlikely.21:53
Ben64noobface: although i'm curious as to which iso you used, since ubuntu hasnt fit on a cd for a while now21:53
daum_i'm leaning towards there is someting going on with the network itself, as they can ping/curl themselves over the interfaces and get a response, but anything else can't get tem21:53
KiritoJordan_U, wrong terminology but it's definitely pulling ytdl from somewhere else.21:54
daum_Jordan_U, but that may be due to the fact they are on the same network and not tehn trying to use the default gateway which is on the other nic21:55
noobfaceben64 sorry for delay. I didn't know you need a particular type. Which one will work and can you update the OS once you install it?22:00
Ben64noobface: how about you explain more of what you did22:01
noobfaceok, downloaded ubuntu -16.04-desktop-amd64.iso.part, and burned it to the cd with Brasero Disc Burner. The prompt didn't give an option to make it bootable and when i took it back out and inserted again then the file manager prompt came up with the ubuntu folder on the cd but when i tried to open it it said something had to be on there to install.22:04
noobfaceor actually to be opened22:04
Ben64.part ?22:05
SpeccyManthe clue is in the filename, .part means it is incomplete!22:05
noobfaceoh i see. oh sec while i redownload22:06
noobfaceactually before i do is there a version you'd recommend for cd install22:06
Ben64well it isn't going to fit on a cd22:06
noobfaceokay well my problem with the usb is that i can't seem to get rufus (to actually install) to install or run and i keep running into this problem22:08
noobfacethats why i thought cd would be easier22:09
Bashing-omnoobface: There is a minimal install that will fit on a CD .. that, however, is not for the faint-at-heart .22:09
tgm4883noobface: why are you trying to use rufus on linux? Or are you using Brasero on windows?22:09
Ben64tgm4883: windows software to put isos on usb22:09
noobfaceyes tgm488322:09
Ben64oh wait i missed the brasero bit earlier22:10
tgm4883noobface: you're using brasero on windows?22:10
YankDownUnderIf "Rufus" is causing issues, there is "WinUSB" that lives in the Ubuntu repo's that can be used to create Windows bootable USB drives - and as well,  USB's should be properly formatted and partitioned prior to use (they do get corrupt, ya know)22:10

=== trollsen is now known as nolsen
noobfaceoh i see the problem. Well my other computer came with windows 10 on it22:11
noobfacealso not that that computer doesn't have an OS at all and it currently stuck in a loop of .. search for os, no os loop back22:12
Ben64rufus is windows software for running on windows. since you're trying to make the bootable usb on linux, you wouldn't use windows software to do it22:12
YankDownUnder"WinUSB" runs natively on Ubuntu.22:12
noobfaceI can't find winusb on the command line I just did: sudo apt install "WinUSB says- unable to locate package then I did: sudo apt search WinUSB .. it just says sorting...full text search.. done22:14
Ben64it's called "winusb"22:15
YankDownUnderHave to add the PPA and it's yours.22:15
Ben64no ppa, and winusb isn't even what you want22:15
Ben64use the usb creator22:15
Ben64or dd22:16
noobfacei thought winusb WAS the usb creator22:16
Ben64winusb is for making windows bootable usb's, you said you're trying to put ubuntu on a usb22:16
noobfacethats right22:18
noobfaceok, what software do i need to download Ben64 to make my usb bootable22:20

DMAHello. My aunt's got an old laptop with 12.04 and updated it to 12.04.5 but her WiFi stopped working (chipset is Ralink RT3290). Seems like the driver needs to be compiled, but I'm thinking on upgrading it to 16.04. What would be the best way? do-release-upgrade gives me a 404 error as well as the software updater (which I guess calls do-release-upgrade)22:38

noobfacei just did it again and the second i do install ubuntu, enter it powers off, any suggestions?22:47

Bassemhow to keep num lock on while ubuntu loading?22:55
x23i'm using retroarch in ubuntu 16.04, but the option down or top in my josting don't work22:55

BassemYankDownUnder, ubuntu turn it off22:57
Jordan_UDMA: Make sure that she does. Most people don't keep backups, and all too often there is a disaster (hardware failure, fire, mistake) that ends up losing a lot of data, when such a loss is easily preventible.22:57

noobfacehey, so im installing ubuntu 16.04 from a usb and i want to know how much swap area i should leave if i have 16004 space available23:30
noobface16004 MB btw23:30
chechenoobface: how much ram do you have on your system?23:31
checheI am unable to execute terminal from dash on ubuntu 16.0423:31
chechenoobface: the 16Gb are ssd drive right?23:32
Bassemgbaker_, Ubuntu Precise (and superior) users : You must install the package wine:i386 to get PlayOnLinux working is that me?23:32
noobfacebut it says i have only 16004 mb of free space left after the /dev/sda23:33
setuidOk, this is an odd one... I ssh from A -> B, keys are set up, not prompted for auth. Perfect. I then ssh from B -> C, and am prompted for a password. (keys from B->C are set up, I should NOT be prompted).23:33
gbaker_Yes, but it should just install it as a dependency23:33
noobfaceBUT the /dev/sda/ doesn't show size23:34
setuidBut... If I open another terminal, ssh from A -> B, then B -> C, I am NOT prompted, and can ssh right into C without auth from B.23:34
setuidBut ONLY when I have done an initial ssh in that first session, and keep the shell open to C23:34
setuidssh-agent is not used anywhere here, and should not be23:34
Bassemgbaker_, there's 3 options For the Trusty version For the Saucy version For the Precise version which is mine?23:34
setuidSo why does A->B->C work the second time, but not the first, if the keys are set up the same across all three hosts?23:34
Bassemgbaker_, im on this page if you can guide me https://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html23:35
preciseSo I have a directory of files that are arbitrarily named ebooks, using the file util, I can get the majority of their titles from Meta data. I would like to bulk rename the files based on said Meta data. Here is my script along with my output and 2 stack excange posts that I referred to: http://pastebin.com/fW9b4zYV23:35
DMAsetuid: check the security log on B and C to see what's different the second time you SSH A->B->C23:35
preciseObviously the output is not what I am looking for, hence the echo control.23:36
gbaker_You shouldn't need to download from site, use the package manager23:36
Bassemgbaker_, how?23:36
chechenoobface: normaly the sugessted swap size is double RAM size.23:37
preciseignore line 3, snuck in there on accident23:37
setuidDMA, Nothing different23:37
noobfacethen that's be the whole things23:37
setuidDMA, But if the keys are set up right (they are), then auth should work every time, not only the 2nd to nth time23:37
gbaker_just open a terminal and paste this     sudo apt-get install playonlinux23:38
DMAsetuid: just a theory: perhaps there are some weird configs in sshd_config23:38
Bassemgbaker_, is apt-get working in ubuntu 16 or apt only23:38
DMAsetuid: the log you checked was /var/log/sshd or which one?23:38
setuidThe first login prompts for auth, but as long as I keep that session open, the other ssh's into C are unprompted23:39
preciseSo any ideas for my renaming BASH script?23:39
setuidDMA, /var/log/auth shows nothing obvious, keys are found, etc.23:39
=== support is now known as Guest14558
DMAsetuid: Looks like there's another kind of agent doing the auth, that's why I think there might be another uncommon configuration elsewhere23:40
DMAPerhaps a Host or User section in sshd_config?23:41
setuidDMA, no agents doing auth that I know of, other than pam23:41

Bassemgbaker_, should i add 32 bit  libraries?23:43
gbaker_Yeah, might as well :)23:43
preciseI hate to be pushy, I just don't want my issue to get buried in the wall of text. Any ideas on my script? When I use the file util it gives in quotes the title, so I want to select said quoted area, strip the quotes and rename the arbitrarily named file to the grepped text. Why isn't it doing so?23:44
Bassemgbaker_, with that command sudo dpkg --add-architecture i38623:44
gbaker_Sorry nothing is slow on my laptop. It's so quick I even make myself jealous23:44

allen___Sorry about non-Ubuntu question but does anyone know a good distro which can live on a USB, load into RAM, and save files and settings onto the USB. A persistent USB distro like how Dream Linux used to be?23:46
BootHelphow can i create a custom UEFI boot entry in NVRAM table. "efibootmgr --create"? how do i pass the efi file i want to boot? and not the default elilo.efi23:46
DMAprecise: you might ask in #sed or in #bash23:47
allen___live on a USB flash drive I mean23:47
preciseThanks for the tip DMA, heading there now.23:47
preciseallen___: ubuntu should be able to do that. On Windows look up YUMI USB creator, on Linux look up unetbootin. Check for persistence options.23:48
allen___oh cool, thanks23:48
DMAprecise: and that ".*" regex will match a plain pair of double-quotes; after stripping them you'll end up with a zero-lenth string filename23:49
DMAprecise: second, if you got a file named "part1"-then-"part2" you'll get TWO results from grep (in two different lines) and that'll probably be a problem23:50
checheHow can I find where dash search find the applications? I am unable to find any.23:50
DMAOr maybe not, but you might end up with a two-line-filename file23:50
minimecallen___: I even use a standard ubuntu and fedora installation on a USB3 stick. I mount the /tmp directory into ram via /etc/fstab @boot. Working quiet well...23:50
mutantecheche: maybe the "which" command helps here23:50
DMAcheche: try which your-app-name23:51
DMAI know there are better alternatives in BASH but as you're talking about DASH...23:51
chechesorry I am taling about the unity stuff.23:51
allen___awesome minimec, I might try that. Though if there's a distro specifically made for persistent USB installs (like Dream Linux used to be) I'd try that first, because they made sure to minimize writes to the flash drive to reduce wear. I think most things were kept in RAM until shutdown, then saved to disk23:53
checheyou click on the windows symbol on your keyboard. screen gets darked and you are able to type to search for your documents music and applications.23:53
setuidDMA, /etc/ssh/sshd_config is IDENTICAL on both hosts, byte-for-byte23:53
checheI thought that it was called dash search.23:54
minimecallen___: You probably get the most write cicles in /tmp and in the browser cache folder. These are the two I mount into ram. And... this story about USB sticks wearing out is getting 'old' with SSD technology now 'imho'23:55
allen___yeah I know, there's different opinions on that23:56
allen___anyway thanks, I'll look into that :)23:56
DMAsetuid: uhm... I just can think of increasing sshd's verbosity (if possible) and checking again the logs from A->B until B->C. If you got a different behaviour the first and second time, there's gotta be a clue somehere on why23:56
Bassemsound notification is missing in hexchat what can i do?23:59
