tatertotshello all00:21
tatertotsare most of you guys using ubuntu in a p2p/workgroup lan environment?00:21
YankDownUnderIsn't everyone pretty much in some type of mixed LAN...?00:22
tatertotsno not everyone has their ubuntu box joined to a domain00:23
tatertotsmost are probably just using it p2p/workgroup00:23
mutantethere are still companies who have Windows domain, a domain admin, and no "bring your own hardware" at all00:23
YankDownUnderI'll keep myself to preferring freedom in a network - unless there are issues that truly require some type of security that exceeds the norm.00:24
tatertotsI've joined my ubuntu to domain but can't log in with domain credentials for some reason or another00:25
tatertotsit says it's in the realm and it shows up in AD and all00:25
tatertotsbut no dice when trying to log in as a domain user00:25
tatertotsand you know there's not a lot of current info on ubuntu in the domain/AD environment online either sadly00:26
tatertotsI've been trying to use realmd and sssd instead of winbind and samba00:28
rypervencheHi there00:29
tatertotsjust thought i'd see if any of you guys had messed around with that type of config00:29

tatertotsI was using this as a guide https://www.unixmen.com/how-to-join-an-ubuntu-desktop-into-an-active-directory-domain/00:33
orlocklol wtf00:33
tatertotsyeah most of the related articles on *ubuntu.com were written for Ubuntu 10.04 which is wayyyy outdated info00:34
* RtMF swats at the bait with *her* claws00:34
tatertotsi'm sure not too many ubuntu users will be attempting to join ad but i thought i'd make it my pet project for today00:35
binarydepthtatertots Are you using 14.04 ?00:36
tatertotsi guess technically it is joined since the client (ubuntu) says it's in the realm and the (server/AD) displays the ubuntu box, just can't log in to the dam thing00:37
YankDownUndertatertots: Here's an interesting read from SuSE: https://www.suse.com/documentation/sles11/book_security/data/sec_ad_config.html00:37
tatertotsguess it could still be useful in the event of a network audit by a vendor or something00:37
YankDownUndertatertots: Even though that article is for SuSE, it points out important points...00:38
YankDownUndertatertots: As well...(for Arch Linux - but still a good read): https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Active_Directory_Integration00:39
tatertotsthanks Yank i'll read through those links and see if i can make head or tails of this weirdness i'm having logging in00:40
jaythelinuxguyI'm hoping someone can help me with urxvt. My ~/.Xresources is being read properly every boot, but the spacing is reset and there is too much space between characters. If I run "xrdb ~/.Xresources" the spacing is completely fixed. But I have to run that command every time I log in. Is there something in Ubuntu that might reset the spacing and override my Xresources during login? My Xresources is here: http://pastebin.com/iT9nyHPg00:46

cookie913can someone help with packaging question? I want to install/add some files into the package01:46
cookie913according to the docs, I have to edit debian/boo.install01:47
cookie913then add src/bar usr/bin01:47
cookie913my question is where is this src? I assume source directory where my debian folder is located...01:48
cookie913which means my line will be debian/bar usr/bin01:48
cookie913assuming there is a usr/bin in the final package01:49
cookie913the above does not work… and I have been re-reading the doc… but I'm at a lost01:49
antonio_btw, I have tried rfkill unblock all  to no awail01:50
crafty1cookie913: Which package are you referring to.  Also this is the ubuntu channel.  Also do you mean /usr/src01:50
cookie913I have downloaded the source code of "which"...01:50
cookie913just wanted to package it as a debian file01:51
cookie913purpose is for playing only01:51
crafty1cookie913: But the source for which program01:51
cookie913hehehe… is the "which" program… eg. try typing "which perl"01:52
cookie913and you should get /usr/bin/perl or something like that01:52
crafty1Oh haha I understand now01:52
cookie913anyway, it could be anything…01:52
cookie913I am just trying to play with packaging.. https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/dother.en.html#install01:52
crafty1cookie913: gotcha gotcha01:53
crafty1my initial thought is that the source would download to /usr/src.  is it not there?  thats where linux headers go01:53
antonio_I'll be back tomorrow with my questions. it's 4am here. goodnight all01:55
orlockIs there a native ipsec vpn client for ubuntu?01:55
orlockOr an AnyConnect client?01:55
crafty1cookie913: I mean I would think you could go sudo apt-get source <package>01:56
cookie913but I am trying to package it myself01:56
crafty1sudo apt-get build-dep <package>01:56
crafty1sudo apt-get build-dep <package>01:56
crafty1sudo apt-get source --compile <package>01:56
crafty1The above should put a .deb in the directory you ran the command from01:57
cookie913so let say I have a file called blah.sh and I want to include that in the which.deb01:57
cookie913how would I do that?01:57
crafty1Perhaps you might want to consult this since you are creating it on Ubuntu for Debian : packaging.ubuntu.com/html/packaging-new-software.html01:58
jaythelinuxguyhi guys. I'm using rxvt on Ubuntu MATE and I'm having an issue, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm pretty sure this is an Ubuntu-specific issue, but my spacing is off. What fixes this is running "xrdb ~/.Xresources" and then it's perfectly fine, until I log out and log in again. It's almost as if something in Ubuntu is overridding spacing settings during login. Have any of you run into this: My Xresources is the following: http://pastebin.com/02:16

jaythelinuxguybocephus, the spacing is off, but only until I run: xrdb ~/.Xresources02:27
jaythelinuxguyThis problem is specific to urxvt, my preferred terminal02:27

theosevery text that comes over it gets embedded in it02:50

theosYankDownUnder there was a dialog box there. copy/paste/select all etc. and it didnt close with esc. now it turned black02:51
theosYankDownUnder i have no idea what created it02:51
YankDownUndertheos: Is there a window control on the dialog? Like "Close/Minimise/Maximise"?02:51

YankDownUndertheos: If you click inside that box, and just hit "enter" or "return" - does that do anything?02:52

returnthisis there any paid ubuntu support? All I see is enterprise, but I just want to get my current problem resolved03:03
YankDownUnderreturnthis: Enterprise/Business. Since I don't do well at reading minds and cannot perceive your problem, what is your problem?03:04
returnthisYankDownUnder: I have been here a few times asking already. which is why I just asked about paid support...03:04
returnthisI have 3 displays running at 2560x1440, but apps are rendering at 1024x76803:05
returnthiseverything looks huge03:05
returnthisI have to set the fonts to very very small and zoom web pages in firefox to < 50%03:05
YankDownUnderreturnthis: Is "X" resolving the proper resolutions for the screens?03:05
returnthisthis is on a laptop that I have had ubuntu running for over 2yrs03:06
returnthisand worked for weeks after upgrading to 16.0403:06
returnthisyes, xrandr reports correct resolution03:06
returnthisif I do Ctrl+Alt+F2 the terminal renders correctly03:06
returnthisxterm also renders correctly03:06
returnthisit appears its only gnome-ish apps:  firefox, chrome, emacs, slack, spotify03:07
YankDownUnderreturnthis: So the rest of the "Desktop" is not rendered in 2560x1440, correct?03:07
returnthisbut I am not entirely positive on that03:07
returnthisspotify menus are 'large' but the rest of the main display looks normal03:07
YankDownUnderreturnthis: The actual desktop - is that rendered in the 2560x1440?03:07
returnthisI use xmonad... so ,,,03:08
SuccessIs ubuntu more stable than it used to be?03:08
Successlike say last year03:08
returnthisbut I did try the default ubuntu wm03:08
returnthisand no, the desktop is 'large'03:08
Successreturnthis, define 'large'03:08
YankDownUnderreturnthis: Again, what I'm trying to discern first and foremost is whether or not the window manager/desktop are rendered in the proper resolution.03:08
returnthis'large' == rendering as if 1024x76803:09

returnthisI tried older kernels03:10
returnthisI tried older version of xmonad03:10
returnthisI am not able to discover any errors in dmesg, or xorg log03:11
YankDownUnderreturnthis: Firstly I'm attempting to figure out if the actual window manager and desktop are truly using 2560x1440 as the native resolution. That has to be established first in order to truly proceed.03:11
returnthishow do we determine that?03:11
returnthisxrandr reports the correct res03:11
YankDownUnderreturnthis: You should be able to find out quickly enough in the control centre - under hardware - then displays03:12
YankDownUnderreturnthis: What "xandr" says and what the desktop says are two different things, truly.03:12
Successguys I'm considering moving to ubuntu temporarily a(maybe permanently if it's finally decent) and i have a few questions to know if it's worth my time. (1) is 16.04 notably more stable than 15.10 was, and (2) does unity still suck03:12
returnthisyes. that is also showing the correct resolution03:12
ramrebolHi. I installed skype, and then the audio stopped working. I restarted ubuntu, and also I searched solutions in google, but I have not find any solution. Now it does not sound anything. Anyone can help me?03:12

There is nothing obvious in the logs or thermald, and the max cpu freq available remains as high as it should be -- the cpu just idles at 800MHz anyway.03:57
tortibplop_its_ellie, if i try to use gdm3 it renders the system completely unbootable03:57
plop_its_ellieYankDownUnder, oh was just giving an example, but yes compiling source also works too03:57
YankDownUnderFair enough.03:57

theskillwithinhmm so the biggest differences between ubuntu and osx will probably be, no more keychain, no more time machine,  do iphone backups even work?    doesn't seem like a huge sacrifice.04:16
plop_its_ellietheskillwithin, there are replacements for all of that04:16
theskillwithinkeyhcain doesnt even work with terminal I think lol, so thats a problem for me04:16
xanguaThe replace for iPhone tho, is switch to Android(or Ubuntu phone)04:16
theskillwithinubuntu prob has a better way04:16
plop_its_ellietheskillwithin, if you want a password manager you can use from the command line you can use pass04:17
plop_its_ellieubuntu has a backup utility called deja-dup (which is just a front end to rsync) and you can make incremental backups of your files04:18
plop_its_ellieif you want to get fancier you can install ubuntu using btrfs or zfs and use snapshots as well04:18
theskillwithinya ill switch to ubuntu, but man idk if Ill ever get rid of my iphone.04:18
plop_its_ellietheskillwithin, iphones work with ubuntu04:18
plop_its_ellieyea, you can plg it in and get data from it04:19
plop_its_ellieand sync04:19
plop_its_ellietho i doubt backups will work04:19
theskillwithinohhhh, ok thats cool.  I thought u ment i could install ubuntu phone software on my iphone04:19
plop_its_elliefor that you can use itunes in a virtual machine04:19
notkenspeaking of backups04:19
xanguaHe said iPhone backups, so I assume he means iTunes, which doesn't work in Ubuntu theskillwithin plop_its_ellie04:19
gbakerI'm using btrfs and seems quite fast and stable04:19
notkenanyone ever use deja-dup for any backups?04:20
plop_its_ellienotken, yea ive used it04:20
plop_its_ellieit works fine, not much i can say about it04:20
theskillwithinif that ubuntu phone was as thin as an iphone id prob buy that just to try it04:20
plop_its_ellietheskillwithin, you can already buy ubuntu phones today04:20
notkeni have 15.10, but i can't upgrade to 16.04 somehow04:21
plop_its_ellietho idk how mature the os is04:21
notkenis it because the support for 15.10 ended already?04:21
orlocki used to have a phone i could install .deb's on04:21
orlocki miss that phone04:21
theskillwithiniphone there  is just so much hype, they will come out with a thinner phone in 3 months now and id hate to miss out on that04:21
fnodeusertheskillwithin: because you want to show off your mobile :P04:22
plop_its_elliebut yea apple doesnt care much about other platforms so getting an android device would probably be easier in the long term04:22
theskillwithinhmmm no apple maps pre installed on unbuntu phone tho.   hmmmmmmm04:22
xanguatheskillwithin: and they'll also break Ubuntu support for every new iOS release... Since 201004:22
plop_its_ellietheskillwithin, ive heard there is a map app called mapero which uses open streetmaps04:22
plop_its_elliethere are alternitives tho like google maps04:22
theskillwithinlol everytime i ask siri to take me somewhere  it opens up apple maps and im like, nope close, open google maps manually.  lol04:22
xanguaIsn't Apple maps... Open maps?04:23
plop_its_elliegoogle maps, nokia has some maps thing, open streetmaps...04:23
plop_its_elliexangua, i think they are using yandex on the back end04:23
theskillwithinI have a funny video to share, I guess ill put that in offtopic04:24
plop_its_elliealso there are other ways to back up the phone04:24
Startrek852anyone know what mirror.servers.com is? I found it in the sources.list on an Ubuntu 14.04.4 server.04:24
plop_its_ellieyou could plug it in, extract the data to a designated folder just for your phone's data and use rsync/deja-dup to make incremental backups for that04:25
theskillwithinim sure if its that much of an issue I could partition a small portion off and install osx on that.04:25
theskillwithinI dont even like itunes haha04:25
plop_its_ellieyou could put os x in a vm as well04:26
plop_its_ellietho you could use nextcloud as well to sync things like photos across all your devices as well04:27
theskillwithinwell the first thing id probably do  is use  https://www.vagrantup.com/vmware/  and see if I can use my adobe photoshop cc subscription inside that vm04:27
plop_its_ellieso with nextcloud there is a server component and a client component, for that you set up the server software on a server (obiously) then you download the client app onyour devices and point it at your nextcloud server04:28
* theskillwithin shakes fist in air cursing adobe04:28
plop_its_elliephotoshop works fine in a vm04:28
plop_its_elliewhat are you doing in photoshop?04:28

plop_its_ellienot lightroom04:29
theskillwithinim not a designer, I take the design files and turn that into a website04:29
theskillwithinbut really the designers should provide me assets lol04:29
plop_its_elliedarktable is basically a replacement for adobe lightroom04:29
plop_its_ellieyou might be able to get away with just using gimp then04:29
plop_its_ellietho if you are doing it for websites then i recommend using svgs04:29
plop_its_ellieand inkscape would be the better tool for that04:30

theskillwithinlike oh thanks for theses 20 indiviudal psd files instead of using seperate artboards putting mobile and desktop view together, and making me export all the assets individually some of which I have to edit myself because you didnt make them easy to just export you just made it look good, and no vector so literally finding my own assets or svg sometimes.04:34

christanhow to set it so that my dongle will work ?07:18
anddamchristan: I briefly read your previous lines, you've been answered: set the network in your host computer, and then configure the guest networking to work with that07:22
anddamIIRC bridging wasn't allowed if the host interface is wifi, but that may have been a linux things only07:22

Luka00Hello people,boot my pc this message appears: intel_soc_dts_thermal: request_threaded_irq ret -22 ? what does it mean? Creates problems?09:01
Luka00I upgraded the kernel to version 4.709:02
commander_Luka00, is it creating any issue ??09:03
Luka00not for now09:03
hateballLuka00: you're running an unsupported kernel, so who knows09:03
YankDownUnderIt's a "fan trip point" - from the sensors modules that load with the kernel.09:03
commander_Luka00, thats fine !! its not any error as i can read it09:03
commander_Luka00, so yeah it is just a output from kernel module09:04
commander_guys my touchpad not working , upgrading kernel should fix it ??09:05
YankDownUndercommander_: Is it safe to assume you've been through the control centre/system settings and nothing works...?09:06
commander_synclient -l says no module loaded09:06
YankDownUndercommander_: Has it worked before?09:06
commander_YankDownUnder, synclient says no synaptics module loaded09:06
commander_yeah when i installed 14.04 at first09:07
YankDownUndercommander_: Has it worked before...?09:07
commander_after some upgrades it stopped09:07
Luka00For now still does not freeze, if it happens I will return to the supported kernel.09:07
commander_again i fixed it some modprobe commands and again it stopped09:07
commander_Luka00, yes09:07
Bassemwhat is the right driver to use https://s32.postimg.org/3kdk7t1ed/Screenshot_from_2016_07_14_10_42_57.png09:07
YankDownUnderAh...well. Right - so that answers that question. Have you removed+reinstalled the synaptics touchpad stuff in the software centre?09:08
commander_YankDownUnder, i did that but it still wont work09:08
commander_sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics i did this09:09
commander_after removing xserver-xorg-input-synaptics09:09
YankDownUndercommander_: So you've "installed" the "Synaptics Touchpad" stuff, and rebooted and all that jazz, and it is still not working, eh?09:09
commander_i did it so many time and it wont load man09:09
YankDownUndercommander_: If I didn't ask, I would not know - therefore, I ask.09:10
commander_YankDownUnder, so i decided to give it a try with Xenial's kernel09:10
commander_YankDownUnder, no problem buddy09:11
YankDownUndercommander_: Have you tried REMOVING all that is related to the touchpad, and then doing a cold-boot to see if the kernel "re-finds" the hardware and configures it?09:11
commander_YankDownUnder, how can i do that ???09:11
commander_I mean i dont know what that all mean09:11
commander_i removed xserver-xorg-input-synaptics  which i think are the drivers09:12
YankDownUndercommander_: Firstly, remove the software related to the touchpad. Then do a very nice clean shutdown/power off. Then power on the machine again to observe if Ubuntu re-recognises the hardware...hmm?09:12
commander_YankDownUnder, my touchpad works like a PS/2 mouse , but it is not recognized as touchpad , and no scrolling , it is not even listed in setting panel09:13
YankDownUndercommander_: Something that I've done for clients - in some instances when things "acted freaky" - was to turn off the touchpad in the BIOS of the laptop, boot back into linux, remove ALL that was related to the touch pad, power down again, then re-enable the touchpad in BIOS and let the system do it's magic.09:14
YankDownUndercommander_: Then you might also want to install "xserver-xorg-input-mtrack" when you get back to that point, bro.09:15
commander_okay let me try09:15
commander_YankDownUnder, it removed xserver-xorg-input-multitouch09:16
commander_okay i will be back after testing thanks for help09:16

Luka00someone tells you to update someone downgrate13:18
Luka00I am not sur eis the best solution13:18
EriC^Luka00: you can also try intel_idle as a grub boot parameter, but i'm not sure how it affects the powersaving of the intel and other stuff13:19

Bassemmy num lock always turn off at login screen13:20
torpetThe source version is the same (nzbget 16.4), but I want to use the version packaged by the devs.13:20
SkylakeMXYouxin: if that doesn't work, I think the problem is that you are still using 14.04 and a upgrade to a newer version is pending13:20
SkylakeMXYouxin: you should try sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade13:20
Luka00the possibility of reinstalling windows becomes more real :D13:20

Bassemhow can i keep my num lock on ar login screen ubuntu 1613:23
EriC^Luka00: it's a kernel bug, try 14.04 it should work fine, or downgrade the kernel to 4.1.12 , or try the intel_idle or intel_idle.max_cstate=1 grub boot parameter, the cpu will get hotter than usual though so it's at your own risk13:23

xanguaOriginally released in April 201414:05
loop01but the latest iso downloaded today gave me the kernel 3.1314:05
loop01whereas another iso downloaded a few weeks back gives me 3.1914:05
loop01it doesn't make sense, I am quite astonished to be honest14:05
tatertotsi think i'm going to try to use winbind instead of sssd, maybe winbind will be less frustrating14:06
Bashing-omloop01: I suspect that "  the same iso to install " is not an accurate stement . release 14.04 has kernel series 3.13. release 14.04.1 has the utopic kernel. now at 14.04 there is wily's kernel  soon to be xenial's in 14.04.5 .14:06

nacccapum321: what does editing those scripts have to do with changing their permissions?16:34
Joniihello. I did kinda ugly reinstall of Ubuntu 16.04 as it broke pretty bad16:34
JoniiAnd as a result, I manually, after installation, cleared lots of partitions from my disk. Including swap partition. Now, my ubuntu boots really slowly16:35
nacccapum321: you said you wanted to "change grub_timeout and grub_default", yes? All you need to do is edit /etc/default/grub and then run `update-grub`.16:35
JoniiI'm thinking it's because ubuntu searches for that swap partition which no longer exists16:35
capum321oh lawd, well, if you change 40_custom to make grub entries look like what you want, the moment you update-grub with those scripts execute bit enable, they will override your changes to default]16:35
JoniiAny easy way to fix this? If I manually make a new swap partition, for example?16:35
tgm4883Jonii: do you have a swap partition listed in /etc/fstab ?16:36
nacccapum321: 40_custom is for adding extra grub entries, not for changing the format of existing grub entries16:36
Joniitgm4883: a cryptswap thing, yes16:36
JoniiCryptswaps confuse me so dunno16:37
JoniiIt says in comments that a swap existed during installation16:37
tgm4883Jonii: well you could try creating a new swap partition, but I'd check what is actually making your boot slow first16:37
Joniibut the line is commented out which contains its uuid, and it only has /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0 line16:37
Joniitgm4883: well, i'm like 40% sure it's the swap, and I figured it's way easier to make a working swap or to disable the swap than do any deeper forensics16:38

tgm4883systemd does have some neat built in tools16:41
tgm4883Jonii: you can also get a graphical view by doing "systemd-analyze plot > plot.svg"16:41
tgm4883Jonii: So apt-daily is taking a long time to run it semes16:41
tgm4883that sda6 does as well16:42
tgm4883Jonii: is sda6 your swap?16:42
craigbass76do I need to make a partition on a thumb drive first, or can I just dd if=... of=... and make it into a bootable drive?16:44
akikcraigbass76: dd will create everything for you16:45
craigbass76akik, That's what I was thinking, just figured I'd ask before I pulled the trigger16:46
Joniitgm4883: actually the numbers are all messed up. sda6 is where my / is now16:46
Joniifstab remembers different numbers16:46
tgm4883Jonii: fstab should be working off UUID, not device numbers16:47
tgm4883Jonii: what does 'lsblk' look like?16:48
Joniiuuid is entirely incorrect16:48
Joniioh, wait, no it isn't16:48
JoniiIt's correct, it remembers where root is.16:50
Joniicrypttab has uuid as well, which I presume dose not exist16:50
wally___anyone familiar with mounting MyCloud via nfs on 16.04?16:51
tgm4883Jonii: might be worth checking /var/log/syslog and see if there are any errors that point somewhere16:51
Joniicouldn't I just disable swap somehow? :/16:51
JoniiI'm now like 60% sure that it would save me16:51
tgm4883Jonii: you could try just commenting out that line in fstab and rebooting16:52
Joniitgm4883: you don't think crypttab file / crypttab line affects this?16:52

naccA-dry_: does it happen with the ubuntu package? you'll need to consult the ppa owner for support of a ppa package17:02
naccdragnadh: i'm not sure what you did, or why. You had steam installed, according to your `apt-cache policy output`. Rather than run steam, it seems like you added a PPA, and then are running a shell script to start steam. In my system, I installed steam from multiverse and I can either use the GUI menus or run `steam` and it launches fine.17:03

kali_yugai'm using kde. my system tray "network" icon doesn't change. It just keeps the default one. before it always changed too now it doesn't anymore17:09
Egyptian[Web]hi - after installing ubuntu lts i run apt-get uprade and it updates my kernel. i need a specific version for my application. how do i tell apt to never upgrade the kernel in the future?17:09
jerichowasahoaxI'm looking to harden my 16.04 server. Any good checklists?17:10
Bashing-omEgyptian[Web]: One can tell the system which kernel is the default booting kenel .17:11
OerHeks!pinning | Egyptian[Web]17:11
ubottuEgyptian[Web]: pinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto17:11
BlapeBlopsEgyptian[Web]: Not sure if you can but it isn't hard to recompile your own Kernel. Maybe you can make a script that uses a really specific version of the kernel whenever you run upgrade17:11
OerHeksno need for compiling kernel though ..17:12
tgm4883That's hardly ever necessary17:12
OerHekskali_yuga, why should your network icon change?? while changing a theme?17:13
ActionParsnipjerichowasahoax: https://www.thefanclub.co.za/how-to/how-secure-ubuntu-1604-lts-server-part-1-basics17:14
jerichowasahoaxActionParsnip: Thank you17:14
naccEgyptian[Web]: why are you so sensitive to kernel version?17:15
OerHeksActionParsnip, i found some handy tips here too, especially with firewall and such https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-16-0417:15
Egyptian[Web]no no .. i dont want to recompile. ubuntu provides a workable version already . ..17:15
naccEgyptian[Web]: if you dont' update your kernel, you'll miss out on security fixes17:15
Egyptian[Web]nacc: ask the devs! /rof17:15
OerHeksif an app needs a specific kernel ( and not higher) , drop that app.17:16
naccyeah, it seems fundamentally broken17:16
naccand also violates the separation a kernel is trying to provide17:16
Egyptian[Web]OerHeks: i wish .. anyways .. i see apt pin and apt hold but nothing  to say this specific version is the one to use17:17
naccEgyptian[Web]: it can be a major security problem to not update your kernel ever, I really would not suggest you do that.17:18
naccEgyptian[Web]: if there is some API or other regression in your application due to an Ubuntu kernel update, file a bug17:18
Egyptian[Web]nacc: thanks for the word of advice17:18

drupalproI'm on a ubuntu 12.04 and currently I can't ping anything outside. ping  shows a network not reachable. my ifconfig settings look like this: http://prntscr.com/bswrnr  -- im not sure what to do to troubleshoot this.17:28
naccdrupalpro: you don't seem to have a default route (afaict)17:29
naccdrupalpro: did this happen all of a sudden?17:29
ActionParsnipdrupalpro: can you ping your default gateway?17:29
drupalprobut i never changed anything. it was working fine a few days ago.17:29
drupalproyea just out of no where it stopped working.17:29
drupalproi tried rebooting.17:30
drupalprowhere do i see my gateway ?17:30
naccdrupalpro: it'd probably be
drupalprohow do i set this default route?17:30
ActionParsnipdrupalpro: IP=$(/sbin/ip route | awk '/default/ { print $3 }'); echo $IP17:31
drupalpronacc, where do u get that # from ?17:31
naccActionParsnip: no default route on their system17:31
naccdrupalpro: just based off typical network configs and your IP17:31
ActionParsnipnacc: that'll do it17:31
ActionParsnipdrupalpro: reboot router (leave it off for a good 30 seconds) then reboot your PC17:31
drupalproim on a vps node17:32
naccsomething like `ip route add default via dev eth0`; but that shouldn't be necessary to do manually17:32
drupalproim logged in via the web browser console page17:33
ActionParsnipdrupalpro: I'd ask your provider what to set it as. It should get set via DHCP17:33
drupalproActionParsnip, just did your command.. got nothing: http://prntscr.com/bswu4117:33
ActionParsnipdrupalpro: yes, your system doesnt know where to shove traffic to get web access17:34
drupalpromy provider is vps.net --- so i have to ask them? but why was it working find a few days ago? did the provider change something ?17:35

drupalprohmm.. i see a rebuild network button on the page. let me try tat.17:36
drupalprothanks for the leads.17:36
nacccapum321: what do you want to change in the entries?17:36
capum321just the title content between single quotes17:37
curlearsgreets.  When booted under 14.04.4 Live DVD, where do I look for the storage device filenames?  I though they were under /dev, but I can't find them there.  I know the system sees them, because I can see them on my louncher bar on the side of the GUI screen17:37
dragnadhnacc, i installed it from the ubuntu thing like you said and now get http://pastie.org/1090744917:38
drupalproActionParsnip, ok that did it... rebuilt network button on the vps page17:39
drupalproall this time ....17:39
curlearsAhh, I found them./   under /media/ubuntu/17:39
ActionParsnipdrupalpro: coolio, all better ?17:40
nacccapum321: can i ask why you want to change the title? for linux, i blieve the title is defined in /etc/grub.d/10_linux17:41
curlearshey there, nacc!17:41
naccdragnadh: what do you mean you installed it from the ubuntu thing? it was already installed on your system (per your prior output)17:42
capum321because i have Lubuntu and the title says Lubuntu and also Advanced modes for Ubuntu the second submenu17:42
capum321says Ubuntu17:42
nacccapum321: can you rephrase that? Are you saying because it says "Ubuntu" and you want it to say "Lubuntu"?17:43
capum321its reads Ubuntu17:44
nacccapum321: afaict, from a grub menu perspective there is no difference between Ubuntu and Lubuntu (that's purely a WM/DE thing)17:44
capum321it reads Ubuntu and I would like to be Lubuntu17:44
curlearscapum321: so much worry over a minor cosmetic issue...17:45
nacccapum321: did you intsall lubuntu or the lubuntu-desktop metapackage?17:45
capum321i installed lubuntu distro17:46
nacccapum321: ok17:47
nacccapum321: i don't have a lubuntu install handy, but i guess you'd modify /etc/grub.d/10_linux to set the OS variable. Then run `update-grub`. BUt I don't think ti's worth doing17:48
capum321So can edit those scripts? i mean other than 40_custom ?17:49
nacccapum321: as root you can do whatever you want to your system17:49
nacccapum321:  you can edit 40_custom too17:49
nacccapum321: you just should know what you're doing.17:49
capum321no, let's be safe side17:49
nacccapum321: then don't edit them at all :)17:49
capum321that was against my will indeed17:50
nacccapum321: you said "safe side", it's safer to not edit system configuration files than to edit them17:51
capum321safe "tweak" side17:52
nacccapum321: tweaking grub configuration is never that safe imo. If it can't be changed in /etc/default/grub, it's not worth doing17:53

OerHeksbaizon, Adobe Photoshop, CAD/CAM, Rosetta Stone, Matlab or others17:58

EriC^^linuxfool: yeah, with x-forwarding, if it's enabled18:36
MonkeyDustlinuxfool  no, because server doen not run X18:37
naccsojaus: ./ just means run 'uTox' as found in . (the current directory)18:37

user12i downloaded it from http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/18:39

sojausI don't quite understand where everything is put when the system installs for me...so trying to grasp it18:41
EriC^^curlyears: dd expects a filename not a dir18:41
naccsojaus: that way those directories are under the control of the package manager (apt/dpkg)18:41
linuxfoolIt doesn't, I was using it as an example. The program I want to run is a small little  3MB poker program with a very simple interface. No 3D graphics or antying, but the program has to be run off a server so clients can access it in a browser using a local IP address18:41

naccsojaus: it would also work, but you'd be making your system harder to maintain18:43
k1luser12: .....18:43
kyle__nacc: I'm confused.  apt-cache search ntp returns nothing on my newly installed server.18:43
EriC^^curlyears: try the name at the start, sdc1 or sdb1 etc, like /dev/sdc118:43
tgm4883curlyears: you need to point it at the device, not the mount point18:43
k1luser12: i thought you were talking about the dd command giving an error.18:43
nacckyle__: have you run `apt update` ?18:43
kyle__Yes.  And installed many things so far.18:43
EriC^^curlyears: actually just the disk, not the partition, so /dev/sdc /dev/sdb ...18:43
user12no no i already did the 'dd' command18:43
kyle__Well, my chef recipes have.18:44
sojausnacc: so anything I do manually needs to go in /opt then? also why did the printer drivers install to /opt? I didnt move them there18:44
user12i was trying to boot from the usb now18:44
k1luser12: where did you dd the the file to exactly? /dev/... ?18:44
sojausim struggling understanding the FS and feel stupid18:44
curlyearsEric^:  I am trying to creat a bootable 16.04 installer.  I donm't have access to my DVD writer, so I have to do it via USB.  What is the correct dd command to accomplish this?  the if="ubuntu16<blah>.iso18:44
nacckyle__: apt-cache search ntp on my system produces 161 lines here :/18:44
tgm4883sojaus: 'man hier'18:44
nacctgm4883: nice one18:44
tgm4883sojaus: that explains the filesystem18:44
Apachezin ubuntu 16.04, where do I alter which Hz the gfx card will output to the monitor?18:44
tgm4883the directory structure I mean, not the filesystem18:44
sojaustgm4883: thanks18:44
user12i dd the file to /media/usb,  which i mounted /dev/sdb1 to so i could access the usb18:45
Apachezsuddently the builtin intel gfx on a laptop seems to operate at 40Hz'ish instead of the regular 60 Hz...18:45
sojausis fs and directory structure not the same thing?18:45
linuxfoolAnd if that's not the best idea, should I just run it off a desktop instead?18:45
kyle__nacc: Doh!  My chef recipes change the sources.list file to a specific mirror, and apparently hadn't run update afterwards.18:45
naccsojaus: /opt is recommended, yes; or possible /usr/local18:45
nicomachuscurlyears: why not just use Startup Disk Creator instead of dd?18:45
tgm4883sojaus: nope18:45
k1luser12: that is all wrong18:45
user12how so?18:45
naccsojaus: fs = filesystem (btrfs, zfs, etc) and directory structure is the layout of directories (agnostic to fs type)18:45
k1luser12: you need to dd it to "/dev/sdb" not /dev/sdb1" or /media/usb.18:46
curlyearsnicomachus: good question.  Because I didn't know there was such a utility? (and will it write a bootable installer to my USB thumb?)18:46
sojausnacc: see this confuses me when you can do it more than one way. I will use the example of themes. I put them in /usr/share/themes but others told me to make a new themes directory in home18:46
naccsojaus: you should not be mucking /usr/share generally18:46
nicomachuscurlyears: yes, it will. just search for it in the Dash.18:46
naccsojaus: taht is under the control of packages18:46
user12why does it have to be /dev/sdb ?  I cd'd to the usb and 'ls' shows the files from it18:46
naccsojaus: there are often multiple ways of doing things.Some are "better" than others for maintainability18:47
sojausnacc: also can you clear up how people use / ? I thought this was root....but I see people type this as home as well18:47
k1luser12: because that is how  this stuff on the terminal works.18:47
naccsojaus: ? / is the root fileysystem directory18:47
user12alright ill try that18:47
k1luser12: i told you to dd to the bare usb. and that it will erase the whole usb.18:47
naccsojaus: unrelated to the user "root" or anything to dow ith "home"18:47
MaybeANameI'm trying to use binfmt-support to run an i386 binary on a Raspberry Pi, doesn't need to be fast just needs to run18:48
nacclinuxfool: typically, a server is running server-like stuff18:48
tgm4883sojaus: / by itself is never home, are you sure it wasn't ~/18:48
nacclinuxfool: if your server is goign to run a graphical application, it will need the deps for the graphical application to run, i assume18:48
sojaustgm4883: perhaps I misread yes18:48
MaybeANameI have qemu-user-static, binfmt-support, and I've added the i386 architecture with dpkg --add-architecture18:48
MaybeANameAnd shows up as a foreign architecture. Also added the non ports repos, and done apt-get update, but, apt install libc6:i386 fails18:49
MaybeANameAny ideas? Says it isn't found18:49
sojausso if / is root what is the root directory under /?18:49
tgm4883sojaus: the root users home directory18:49
curlyearsOK. *FINALLY* creating a bootable USB installer thumb18:49
naccsojaus: you mean /root? that is the root user's home directory18:49
sojauswhat is that for? I thought when you were running as root it was only for system wide changes...why would you need a user directory when root?18:50
tgm4883sojaus: technically, / is just the top of the directory tree. We just always call it the root directory (since the base of a tree is the root)18:50
k1lsojaus: on ubuntu there is no root user account with login. so that user doesnt exist in that way. that is why we use sudo.18:50
tgm4883sojaus: many reasons the root user needs a home directory. For instance, what if the root user needs an SSH key? Where would you store it if there wasn't a home directory for the root user?18:51
curlyearsit seems to be about 1/2 finished18:51
curlyearsI will disappear for a while, as I am going to attempt to install 16.04 on this beast18:51
sojausso my home folder is my media and profile settings right?18:52
curlyearsnacc, K1l_:    wish me luck!!!!!!!18:52
tgm4883sojaus: it contains those things generally, yes18:52
sojausmine is 50GB...could I paste that in place of a home folder on another installation and it would work?18:53
tgm4883sojaus: generally yes18:53
sojausif I wanted to do a manual backup to extermal drives is that a reasonable way? Just copy my entire home folder?18:54
MonkeyDustsojaus  that's how i do it, with rsync18:54
EriC^^+1 rsync18:54
tgm4883sojaus: if you were moving it to the same version of ubuntu, it wouldn't have issues. If you were moving it to a different version or OS, you might run into some minor issues18:54
tgm4883sojaus: yes, I'd run tar or something instead of rsync for a proper backup18:54
sojausSo whats the way to save things that avoids issues?18:54
k1lbecause the system can be isntalled easily with a iso again. you can save a list a installed packages and some settings in /etc too18:54
sojaussay you went to another flavor of ubuntu etc18:55
sojausand would it matter if you went from 32bit 16.04 to 64bit in this case?18:55
k1lsojaus: you can change to another flavor with installing the other desktop18:55
naccafaict, the supported flavors use the same base packages, so that should translate, as long as you are on the same version of the pacakge18:55
tgm4883sojaus: no need to reinstall for a different flavor, just install the -desktop package from the repos18:56
naccsojaus: bitness shouldn't matter either (again, presuming same versions)18:56
sojauswould anything in my 32bit home folder settings mess up on a 64bit install?18:56
sojausok thanks18:56
sojaustgm4883: does doing it that way make things "messier"? since different flavors have different defaults? Like right now Ihave Xubuntu16.04...if I installed xfce on ubuntu 16.04 would it be identical to xubuntu 16.04 or would it have ubuntu apps and settings with xfce desktop?18:57
tgm4883you'd have both sets of apps installed18:57
sojausI have read removing default apps can cause issues...is this true?18:58
tgm4883depends on the default app18:58
tgm4883removing systemd would cause issues18:58
sojaustheses sites said dependencies can be messed up or removed18:59
sojausif you delete default apps...not systemd etc but say like a mail client or broswer that is default18:59
tgm4883sojaus: nothing bad should happen provided you look at what it's trying to do18:59
sojaustgm4883: problem is I don't know what stuff does well enough. say there is a default media player and I want to remove it and put another. can removing it mess up the system due to this dependency thing?19:00
tgm4883sojaus: most likely no19:00
sojausid have to find the link again for the example they used but it was something like this where removing this default application took something improtant with it and screwed up the isntall19:01
tgm4883sojaus: yea find the link19:01
tgm4883I'd like to see that19:01
=== zen is now known as Guest93874
sojaustgm4883: I was trying to find a way to install the base system and then add apps I want...I found xubuntu core but am not sure I'd end up better off doing that over the full install and removing/replacing19:02
sojausi didn't want to end up with a bunch of detritus and messed up settings19:02
tgm4883sojaus: you could install ubuntu server and install stuff from there19:03
sojaustgm4883: how bare bones is that? I would like something that has the xfce desktop and normal utilities and system apps...but let me choose the apps like browser and media players and that stuff19:04
tgm4883sojaus: it starts as command line only19:04
sojausoowff....too much for me then19:04
tgm4883sojaus: personally, I'd just install the default install and customize from there19:05
sojausI am discovering that things get left behind when I remove things with apt-get purge or with the software center...it doesn't remove bits in my home directory hidden files19:06
sojausis cleaning this up maually the only way?19:06
jilocasin0afternoon all19:06
xanguasojaus: yes19:06
naccsojaus: your home directory is not under the pureview of the package manager19:06
jilocasin0anyone know how I can get the software updater to stop trying to install updates for a kernel I'm not running?19:07
naccjilocasin0: what do you mean?19:07
sojausI am never sure where things will be...seems .config .cache .gconf and .local  often have bits left19:07
jilocasin0nacc: running 4.6.2, keep getting security updates for 4.4.019:07
naccsojaus: those are all in your home directory, and which is used is technically application-specific19:07
sojausis there no way to all at once remove those bits?19:07
naccjilocasin0: so you'r enot running an Ubuntu kernel?19:07
k1ljilocasin0: remove "linux-generic" then19:08
k1ljilocasin0: but those updates are there for a reason. if you use mainline or other kernels you need to take care of that of your own19:08
tgm4883sojaus: you could just leave them...19:08
jilocasin0nacc: I had to update to the 4.6 branch as my skylake processor isn't fully supported under 4.4 (esp Intel HD graphics)19:08
tgm4883ah, know that issue19:08
sojaustgm4883: it feels "dirty" with crap laying around...they will have no effect though?19:09
tgm4883sojaus: that's why they are hidden :)19:09
jilocasin0running 4.6.2-040602-generic #201606100516 SMP19:09
naccjilocasin0: you can remove linux-generic and that should remove linux-image-generic, etc.19:09
k1lsojaus: its just a few bytes. dont mind them19:09
naccjilocasin0: right there is an issue, 4.6.4 is out19:09
naccjilocasin0: so you're possibly missing updates already :)19:09
jilocasin0nacc: but I definately don't need 68MB of 4.4 updates.19:10
naccjilocasin0: ok, so do the removal as suggested, but also update your kernel to be current19:10
k1ljilocasin0: we told you already what to do19:10
sojausso when I use apt-get or software center to install things...it puts the executable in /bin and the desktop launcher part in /usr/share/applicaitons and the settings in a dot file in home right?19:10
naccsojaus: no, it puts an executable in /usr/bin19:10
jilocasin0k1I:removing generic won't remove the one I'm using (which is also -generic)19:11
sojausnacc: so what are the executables in /bin?19:11
tgm4883sojaus: no, it puts settings generally in /etc19:11
jilocasin0here goes nothin.....19:11
naccsojaus: did you *read* `man hier` ?19:11
naccsojaus: as suggested a while back19:11
tgm4883it literally spells it out for you :)19:11
k1ljilocasin0: its a metapackage. if you remove that apt autoremove should clean the rest19:11
sojausyes....I see the decriptions...but its hard for me to visualise...I am very visual not good at text19:11
tgm4883It's hard to visualize "This directory contains executable programs which are needed in single user mode and to bring the system up or repair it."19:12
sojausits why I am struggling with command line and do better with discoverable guis...I am trying to look through the directories in thunar and understand where things are19:12
sojausand why19:12
naccsojaus: you should, if you really want to learn this, learn to use the terminal and understand the text19:12
naccit's not really a GUI-oriented thing19:12
sojausnacc: I am trying...19:12
tgm4883sojaus: Why are you trying to learn all this?19:12
tgm4883I feel like we're past the point of a random curiosity19:13
naccsojaus: generally, applications put 'default' settings in /etc or /usr/ somewhere. When they are first run by a given user, the application creates something in ~/ which has the users's customizations. But that's not owned by the pakcage manager but by the executable itself19:13
CodeMouse92sojaus: I'm coming in VERY late on the convo, so I have no context, but "The Linux Command Line" by William Shotts is superb for learning the Linux command line. (Online version is free) linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php/19:14
sojaustgm4883: I have had a lot of issues tyring to isntall things and getting answers has led to more quesitons so I am trying to understand why fixes will or wont work and to not feel so frustrated when things donpt just "work"19:14
curlyearsoff to try installinfg 16.04   back in a while19:14

deepCommand 'ssh' is available in '/usr/bin/ssh'19:15
deepThe command could not be located because '/usr/bin' is not included in the PATH environment variable.19:15
tgm4883sojaus: and with good reason19:15
sojausand when things dont happen like a tutorial says I feel lost19:15
deepcan anyone tell me what went wrong with already executing commands and files19:15
sojausand dont always understand the resolution19:15
tgm4883sojaus: you'd need to post the link to the tutorial19:16
we_are_onedeep #bash19:16
tgm4883deep: nobody can tell you whats wrong with something that you don't post19:16
naccdeep: what did you change? in ~/.bashrc or /etc/bashrc? sounds like you modified your PATH incorrectly19:16
=== capri is now known as zz_capri
sojaussure I didnt save them unfortunately. An example would be trying to install veracrypt. I had issues with the main page method. I found a ppa method that some said was good andsome said not. then I found a command line method that DID work so I saved it19:17
deepnacc, ~/.bashrc19:17
naccdeep: ok, what did you change?19:17
deepwe_are_one,  i didnt get it  #bash ...19:17
deepi added haddop env vars in it19:17
sojausI see different direcitons as to where and how to put things...and I can never be sure if its just opinion or if there is a turly important reason19:18
sojausso trying to learn where things SHOULD go19:18
jilocasin0apparently we are up to 4.6.4...19:19
tgm4883sojaus: which is where 'man hier' comes in19:19
totesHey guys whats the goto site for sharing small packaged configuration files ect?19:19
tgm4883sojaus: I suggest you read that, then let us know if you have question after that19:19
sojausanother is Tor Browser...I got it from the software center...but then I read from Tor saying you shouldnt use the ubuntu repositories but when I try to intall TBB with the Tor direcitons it doens't put it in the same places and menus as the repository...like Tox earlier it has to be moved manully and I dont know where19:20
deepnacc, we_are_one .. any idea19:20
tgm4883sojaus: I'm almost certain you should never be manually moving things19:20
tgm4883sojaus: ever19:20
sojaustgm ok like uToc19:20
Starkysojaus: Well, at least Tor Browser can be put anywhere, like your Desktop.19:21
tgm4883sojaus: ok, what about it19:21
scottlws20utox is safe to install from the repos19:21
curlyears+what ther 8&^T*&^*(&^ is Utox?19:21
sojausif I extract it instead of it installing....like most apps...it just extracts an executable icon in the downloads folder...as we discussed before19:21
naccdeep: please pastebin your .bashrc or your hcanges19:21
scottlws20utox is like a decentralized, encrypted skype19:21
naccdeep: you haven't told us *exactly* what you did, impossible to help19:21
tgm4883sojaus: ok, so run that file?19:21
sojaussome said move uTox to a new directory in /opt for example19:21
tgm4883scottlws20: please stop19:21
sojauswell I dont want to leave it sitting in the downloads folder and run it from there19:22
sojausit just seems weird to do it that way19:22
we_are_onedeep :19:22
sojausbut I am not sure where I can safely move it to that is best19:22
tgm4883sojaus: so then make a bin folder in your home directory and put it there19:22
Egyptian[Web]could someone enlighten me on why this isnt working?  https://thepb.in/p/X6hBPp26L64U319:22
OerHekssojaus, wait, you asked the best place for it, so that would be /opt/ ..19:22
we_are_onewhat's its output ?19:22
sojausOerHeks: yes I followed your directions...I am just trying to understand the whys....19:22
tgm4883sojaus: you should never* be copying stuff manually to locations outside of your home directory19:23
curlyearssojaus: then move the downloaded file to where you *DO* want it extracted to, and run it to extract at that location19:23
deepnacc, oks but for now am not able to open any file19:23
tgm4883curlyears: not really helpful19:23
sojauscurlyears: so move the tar.xz to /opt and extract it there?19:23
sojaushow does that differ from cut and pasting the executable to /opt?19:24
deepThis is the error i am getting :http://pastebin.com/iQhpQLm3 we_are_one  ,19:25
tgm4883sojaus: assuming that the .tar.gz file contains only the executable, then nothing19:25
sojausnormally I would choose "extract using software center" or whatever19:25
naccEgyptian[Web]: becuase isn't a version string?19:25
deepnacc,  : http://pastebin.com/iQhpQLm319:25
k1lsojaus: ubuntu got a packagemanagement. it makes sure programs work and keep security and heavy bugfix updates.19:25
k1lsojaus: so if you fiddle with other 3rd party code, you loose that things.19:25
we_are_onedeep: type $PATH19:25
naccdeep: fine, pastebin the output of `/bin/cat ~/.bashrc` ?19:26
sojaustgm4883: in most cases there are more than just an executable right? at least when Ihave looked. Is the rest the stuff that the package manager puts in /usr/share and whatnot?19:26
nicomachuswe_are_one: do you need help with something?19:26
user12k11 to be completely clear, if my usb is 'sdc1', i should dd to 'sdc'  and not 'sdc1' correct?19:26
we_are_oneno why ?19:26
nicomachusoh nvm19:26
tgm4883sojaus: again, you shouldn't be manually copying stuff outside your home directory19:26
jilocasin0'ello again everyone.19:26
sojauskll thats for things you can get from the repos right? These are things not in them like uTox, veracrypt, etc19:26
k1luser12: yes. it doesnt boot if you dd to the partition. you need to dd to the bare metal19:26

sojaustgm4883:  I heard you...not arguing. I was asking about extraction since uTox is the first time its only been an executable in there...the other times there are other directories...are those the things the package manager moves to the various plces like usr/share and /bin etc?19:28
we_are_oneadd path19:28
sojausk1l: thanks19:28
sojausI am trying to understand why uTox is just a single executable....but the others have so much extra stuff...what is that extra stuff?19:29

deepif i need to edit this how do i do now19:29
deepwhen am not able to open any file \19:29
tgm4883sojaus: everything apparently bundled in utox?19:29
sojausis that not how linux applications are normally done then?19:30
sojausWhen I was asking all the "what goes where" stuff thats what I was getting at. It seems some put a lot of stuff in a lot of places...and uTox for example has one thing...and doesnt put it anywhere automatically19:30
tgm4883sojaus: I give up. I've got more important things to do than walk you through what 'man hier' is19:31
we_are_onedid you try export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin first ?19:31

notadeveloper1 is on amd19:32
notadeveloperhow to use amd and nvidia together in ubuntu?19:32
sojauswell it was mean...I have read man hier...its not explaining what I am asking. You dont owe me you time but it gets old seeing people say "read this" and then getting pissed when that doesnt clerar it up19:32
sojausnot everyone learns the same way sorry19:32
we_are_oneAnd check if these path are correct to your folders and files19:33
sojausI always google and read first because people get so pissed if you don't just "get" things...but sometimes google doesnt solve it19:33
OerHekstgm4883, that utox tag does not even contain a read.me or license..19:33
tgm4883sojaus: different developers package things differently. If you want to know why a specific developer packaged everything into a single file, then you should ask the developer of that app19:33
tgm4883sojaus: your safest bet is going to be falling back to "install only from the repos. If you have to get software elsewhere, create a directory in your home directory (eg. ~/bin) put the file(s) there and add that to your PATH19:35
deepwe_are_one, i changed the path but now if i do source ~/.bashrc  again am getting error19:35
sojaustgm these issues all came up because several things I wanted were not IN the repos...I will make the bin folder thnks19:36

Jordan_Uwe_are_one: Please don't recommend using "vi" in place of cat. Many new users (and quite a few old ones as well) will have understandable difficulty figuring out how to exit vi, and "cat" is the appropriate tool for this job anyway.19:40
naccjilocasin0: you might also just remove the kernel package that's trying to be updated?19:41
tgm4883sojaus: yes, you could put it in /opt if you want. I was trying to save you some trouble19:41
jilocasin0sojaus: I can't comment on uTox specifically, but I am going to assume that it's one big static executable.  you can move it to /opt or /opt/uTox,19:42

sojaushow do I see if Tor is running? I am trying to setup utox to use it and it says Step One is verify its running. I found this command ps -elf | grep tor but I don't understand the long output19:50
sojausis there a simple way to see if its running?19:50
naccdeep: does your issue go away if you `mv .bashrc .bashrc.bak` and then relogin (or start a new shell)19:50
deeptgm4883, :http://pastebin.com/wR24zbpr19:50
jilocasin0sojaus: ps -elf | grep tor  if you see anything other than grep tor you're running it.19:51
deepif i move bash file i wud have to create a new one right ? nacc19:51

sojaushttps://0bin.net/paste/SWNVDDLcoQKAlPrC#V8yfd04SSmfXHJTj-FNowvYsYegYTpi7G4QgUDuN/tz so all this means its running?19:52
ax562is there something I can do?19:52
jilocasin0sojaus: ps lists the processes running, grep filters it for the presence of the string tor.19:52
ax562running 16.04lts 64bit19:53
jilocasin0ax552: install something better ;)19:53

naccjilocasin0: ah19:54
ax562jilocasin0 do you get the same problem?19:55
=== precise is now known as DeerGod
Starkysojaus: You don't need to understand anything in there, except that there is a process called "/usr/bin/tor" (aka Tor) running19:55
deeptgm4883,   ok can u tell me when do we use /etc/environment and qwhere  ~/.bashrc19:55
deepas both hav env variables19:55
ax562I've installed on 3 different machines and it's always the same...works...doesn't work...works..doesn't19:55
sojausStarky: i am not understanding why you quoted that portion...does that "runsasdaemon ) part mean its running ?19:55
tgm4883deep: lets just work on fixing your PATH first?19:55
sojausah ok19:55
jilocasin0ax552: no, it's just way too watered down for my taste.  I typically use apt-get from teh command line, but it's nice to see what's out there in a gui sometimes19:56
ax562It hangs up literely on every task19:56
sojausso if it was not running what would the output for that be?19:56
sojaus"not running" or "not found" etc?19:56
Starkysojaus: No, "the fact that the whole line appears" means that is running19:56
ax562yeah, apt-get is great but sometimes I don't know the exact name of packages19:56
deeptgm4883,  am asking coz its present in my /etc/environment19:56
Starky"runasdaemon" is jsut an argument for Tor, "RunAsDaemon 0" means it's not running as a daemon/service.19:56
tgm4883deep: or if you prefer can you post the output of '/bin/cat ~/.bashrc | /bin/nc termbin.com 9999'19:57
jilocasin0sojaus: if it wasn't running, you wouldn't see it in the output (it only shows currently _running_ processes).  Running as a daemon just means it's running in the background.19:57
ax562can I run for example "apt-get install deluge*" and will that install all packacges with similar starting name?19:57
deeptgm4883, post running that what shld i do19:57
StarkyFor example, I'm gonan use Cygwin here and make an output of mine19:57
tgm4883deep: running which command, I gave you two19:57
sojausjilocasin0: I didnt explicitly start it so does that mean it runs by default? I looked in startup settings and its not there19:58
Starkybut Cygwin's 'ps' is more or less similar19:58
deepthis is what i get from 2nd command19:58
jilocasin0ax562: no to run apt-get install you need to know the name of the package.  There might be one called deluge or not, that command would install all that start with deludge19:58
tgm4883nacc: ^19:58
deeptgm4883, Output = http://termbin.com/f9je19:58
ax562what would be the ramifications if I did?19:59
jilocasin0ax562: apt-cache search <string> would list all of the packages in your repos that contain the string and the name you would need to enter into apt-get install to install it19:59
ax562obviously I would install extra packages that might not be needed, but would that be a serious problem19:59
nicomachusax562: why not just use apt-cache-search?19:59
ax562ah ok20:00
ax562didn't know that existed20:00
ax562thank you!20:00
nicomachusax562: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGet/Howto#Search_commands20:00
naccdeep: why dod you have PATH=y20:01
tgm4883deep: out of curiosity, what if you do this command now 'cat ~/.bashrc | nc termbin.com 9999'20:01
jilocasin0ax562: try this:  'sudo apt-get update'  followed by 'apt-cache search synaptic'  (minus the quotes of course)20:01
Starkysojaus: Try `initctl list`, maybe `grep` it with tor, if it appears there, then it means it's autostarted and it has been installed somehow20:01
StarkyYou could also try `service --status-all` as well20:01
deeptgm4883,  what this site btw -http://termbin.com/f9je ??20:01
tgm4883deep: a pastebin20:02
tgm4883deep: it's showing the contents of that file20:02
StarkyAnd `systemctl list-unit-files --type=service` maybe too20:02
sojausStarky: its not in that list20:02
ax562that brought back a huge list of packages jilocasin020:02
deepnacc, bash: y:/home/hduser1/hadoop-2.7.1/bin:/home/hduser1/hadoop-2.7.1/sbin: No such file or directory20:02
jilocasin0ax562: if you look down near the bottom of the list you should have seen: 'synaptic - Graphical package manager'20:03
StarkyTry the other too, it's gonna depends if it uses Upstart, System V or SystemD20:03
deeptgm4883,  i was not able to open it and gt some msg like this - Your requested URL has been blocked as per the directions received from Department of Telecommunications, Government of India. Please contact administrator for more information.20:03
deepnot sure why ??20:03
ax562oh I remembet synaptic20:03
ax562that's old school20:03
jilocasin0ax562: that tells you that it's in one of your repos and to install it you would need to type: 'sudo apt-get install synaptic'20:03
tgm4883deep: weird20:03
ax562yeah I installed already20:04
Starkysojaus: IF it doesn't appear anywhere, most probably the installer of uTox installed it and executed it20:04
ax562my real problem stems from trying to install deluge20:04
ax562I install it but it never works20:04
jilocasin0ax562: there might have also been a line like this: 'muon - package manager for KDE'  which would be the KDE equivalent.20:05
ax562is this a 64bit 16.04lts bug?20:05
pavlushkanazmul: it worked :)20:05
setuidI'm trying to clone a system's packages into a preseed file, but the only place I can find to add packages, is the 'tasksel tasksel/first' struct. Is there no way to inject a --get-selections style file into the preseed process?20:05

setuidsojaus, torbb handles it all for you20:06
deepnacc,  any idea20:06
setuidsojaus, get the other package, and configure each service manually if you need to20:06
StarkyYou can install tor, `sudo apt install tor` or try to compile it yourself20:06
jilocasin0ax562: according to my apt-cache it's a bittorrent client written in python.  so 'sudo apt-get install deluge' should install it.20:06
ax562yeah install is not the problem20:06
ax562it working is the problem20:06
tgm4883deep: found it20:06
sojausstarky its installed20:07

StarkyUnless someone made one, nope. Tor, as any other Linux service, is mostly configured manually20:10

naccEgyptian[Web]: just like in RH, there are kernel versions (e.g., 4.4.0, 4.6.4, 2.6.8-rc1) and there are package versions (,, etc)20:14
naccdeep: tgm4883 said to run '/usr/bin/sudo ...'20:15

nazmulI am using Zorin OS 11. my wifi adapter( TP-link: model:TL-WN727N) is not working at all. i typed "lsusb" in terminal, then the adapter showing as "Ralink MT7601U"..so, that means the adapter is okay and the driver is not installed. i searched in google and collect some drivers and commands but that's not working.there is some github link of the driver in askubuntu.com but the links are not valid now.they are like from 2014/2012. Please21:00

Tipping_FedoraI need some help with 14.0421:13
Tipping_Fedorait seems I am having a display issue21:14
Tipping_Fedorait's a fresh install, and after a short time it "breaks"21:14
Tipping_Fedorathe symptoms are a "glitchy" screen and a complete freeze of the system21:15
minimecTipping_Fedora: So you cannot switch to a console anymore to check the sys.log and Xorg.0.log files when in 'freeze' state?21:18
Tipping_Fedoraits seems stablish now, so please let me check those files21:19
Tipping_Fedorawhats those files's locations?21:19
Bassemno one can help me?21:19
minimecTipping_Fedora: What if you tried to login via ssh and 'cat' the sys.log file from an other computer, until you get the freeze?21:20
Bassemgot that error The system is running in low-graphics mode21:20
Tipping_Fedorathats what I'm doing now21:20
minimecTipping_Fedora: ;)21:20
Bashing-omBassem: What did you do to break graphic's ?21:21
minimecTipping_Fedora: files are in /var/log21:22
Tipping_Fedoraanything to look for specific?21:24
BassemBashing-om: nothing last command i did for the num lock and i turn off my pc normally when i turn it on again i get this message21:24
minimecTipping_Fedora: Well I guess the syslog file. I see no Xorg.0.log file in /var/log with 16.04, but 'locate' gave me one in $HOME/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log. That is new...21:25
Tipping_FedoraI have 14.04 atm21:25
Bashing-omBassem: // humm .. Maybe go back and revert the change you made to the num-lock script ???21:26
BassemBashing-om: how?21:27
Bashing-omBassem: No idea .. what change did you make ?21:27
BassemBashing-om: nothing i told you i show you the command before i do it21:28
BassemBashing-om: i have access to termina how can i check my graphic21:28
Bashing-omBassem: K. I have a short attention span .. show me again the command that you executed .21:29
Bashing-omBassem: ' sudo lshw -C display ' might be of use here .21:29
BassemBashing-om: sudo sh -c 'printf "[Seat:*]\ngreeter-setup-script=numlockx on\n" >/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-numlock.conf'21:30
minimecTipping_Fedora: I also have one in /var/lib/gdm3/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log. I am using gnome3 with gdm. So you might find one in /var/lib/lightdm/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log . Strange locations...21:31
Tipping_Fedorano, when it freeze3s, ssh stops21:31
Bashing-omBassem: Let's then see that file ' cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-numlock.con ' . see if it has a bearing on this .21:31

ltelmoGood evening, Does anyone know if it is safe to upgrade to gnoem 3.20 via the staging ppa on 16.04 ubuntu-gnome?21:34
Bashing-omBassem: We can look ar the display error log .. see what might be happening ; ' cat .xsession-errors ' .21:34
minimecTipping_Fedora: Did not se the '14.04 message'. So on 14.04 the Xorg.0.log file is still in /var/log. Older files have names like Xorg.0.log.old or Xorg.1.log. You should be able to check them even after reboot.21:35
BassemBashing-om: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1941709121:35
minimecTipping_Fedora: In your case there might also be something in 'kern.log'.21:36
minimecBassem: Hi. In your case it seems like the xserver cannot understand that 50-numlock.conf fiel and starts in low graphics mode. If you remove that file or 'hide' it, the system will probably boot normally.21:38
Bassemminimec: i did the cat command says no such file21:39
minimecBassem: what command?21:39
Bassemcat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-numlock.con21:39
minimecBassem: Oh I see.... There's an 'f' missing probably... 'cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-numlock.conf'21:40
minimecBassem: 'conf' not 'con'21:40

Tipping_Fedorachrissie: I would say ubutnu, or mint linux21:50
tgm4883chrissie: only word processing? Any advanced excel usage?21:50
chrissieExcel for just basic spreadsheeting.  We'll be running a small database too.21:51
tgm4883chrissie: sharing docs outside the company? is that database compatible with linux?21:52
Bassemminimec, it says i can't directly mount it but i have to convert it first21:52
minimecBassem: As discribed in the link...21:52
Bassemminimec, yes thats what the link says i have to convert it first into iso21:53
chrissieNo a database of clients, their fees and notes on their rental records.  The database should be accessed remotely because staff may need to when with clients21:53
chrissieThe entire system needs encryption too21:54
minimecBassem: Is that some music CD image? In that case I think you can open the .cue file directly in the music player.21:54
tgm4883chrissie: so for the first part I'd say you should be fine. I don't know enough about your use case for the database portion.21:54
minimecTipping_Fedora: The Xorg log files seem ok.21:54
tgm4883chrissie: you're inching towards the area where I'd recommend a local consultant21:55
Bassemminimec, it's not music cd21:55
Tipping_Fedoraminimec: should I also grab syslog?21:55
minimecTipping_Fedora: Yep.21:55
chrissieOk, that was most likely on the cards anyway.  I can say with 80% certainty that we'll adopt Ubuntu21:56
chrissieJust has to work...21:56
minimecBassem: There seems to be an app called 'furiusisomount', that should be able to mount the .bin file that goes with the .cue file directly. So... 'sudo apt-get install furiusisomount'.21:59

ouroumovHello. Is it possible when setting up a shared connection (Network Connections -> Add -> type "Shared to other computers" to specify the desired network? Like if I don't want but or ? I've just had a nasty surprise of conflicting nets between my Ubuntu Touch phone's hotspot and a shared connection by cable to another puter.22:09
red_hax0rwould be easy to find the answer if it was manual config maybe, but I don't know the Touch22:10
tatertotsomg i think i found another bug...try to avoid the winbind+samba but and use realmd+sssd and sssd has problems also....this shit won't see the light of day in an enterprise environment22:10
ouroumovred_hax0r, I don't need to change the Phone's net, only the desktop net (though it'd be nice if there was an option for the phone too)22:10
tatertotsi can't believe nobody's really said much about it on any blogs/reddit ect...guess most just are using debian/ubuntu in peer to peer network typologies22:11
tatertotswith these type issues that's where it's going to remain22:12
red_hax0rI'd know more about it if I wasn't stuck using WiFi from other people's networks all the time22:12

TheNH8134g isn;t enough/22:14
tgm4883TheNH813: Well you didn't provide any details, so I just assumed you wanted us to guess22:14
red_hax0rhp sucks even though some are certified22:15
TheNH813Hmmm will look into that. personally i blame the apu graphics drivers not loading22:15
tgm4883TheNH813: I mean, what does "run so horrible" even mean? Is it slow? Graphics colors all messed up? Does it run super hot? Make a clanky sound?22:15
TheNH813super slow22:15
TheNH813like negative infinity fps at the desktop. ;p22:16
tgm4883TheNH813: Slow doing what? Booting? Opening gedit? Loading webpages?22:16
TheNH813graphics run badly.22:16
TheNH813oddly enough, it works fine on the livedvd, but runs bad once installed.22:16
TheNH813md5 of the iso is good btw.22:16
TheNH813Ah finally. That faulty shift key was bugging me. XD22:17
tgm4883TheNH813: yea sounds like the driver isn't working right22:18
TheNH813Maybe I need the proprietary one22:19
TheNH813Or to force VESA22:19
tgm4883what graphics chip22:19
TheNH813Lemme check22:19
TheNH813Radeon HD 7520G22:20
TheNH813To be honest though, It was running nuking hot until I redid the thermal paste. Now the fan no longer screams, so that's a plus.22:20
tgm4883TheNH813: I thnk that's just covered by the radeon driver22:22
TheNH813Mkay, I'l have to look for errors then when I boot into Ubuntu.22:23

ubottudiverdude: If you need to download Ubuntu packages using another machine or OS, check the desired packages in Synaptic and select File > Generate package download script. See also !APTonCD22:25
red_hax0ruse the LiveDVD for chroot, it works great that way22:25
naccEgyptian[Web]: please don't PM, what don't you understand?22:26
diverdudered_hax0r: LiveDVD? I cannot access the machine physically...its locked into an extremely tight network where i have to go via weird terminal servers and stuff and upload any package via a special set up sftp22:26
naccEgyptian[Web]: also, if you don't understand package versioning, you *absolutely* should not decide you don't need to keep your kernel updated.22:26
red_hax0rwhen you're in chroot use bind for dev, proc, sys22:27
diverdudered_hax0r: ok, what does that mean?22:27
naccdiverdude: why do you need chroot?22:28
IonutVan_somebody interested in bonus 20$?  http://www.vultr.com/?ref=6915857-3B22:28
diverdudenacc: because i need to allow another user access to a system...but he cannot browse around in the system22:29
red_hax0rI'll find a page to describe it in a moment, but it's because the LiveDVD uses the file system of the system you're trying to recover, but the hardware of the working operating system ("binding")22:29
diverdudenacc: ie should not be able to22:29
naccred_hax0r: that's not what "bind" mounting is.22:29

red_hax0rif you want to play semantics work for a virus company and tell everyone that uses linux software is really carrying viruses :)22:33
naccred_hax0r: bind mounts have literally nothing to do with hardware. They are a software construct to remount part of the fs somewhere else.22:34
red_hax0r*sys* *dev* *proc*22:34

nacctatertots: did you file bugs, etc.?23:08
k1lput the firefox talk to some firefox channel. they know best what scripts firefox can run and might be able to help you there. that is not ubuntu specific.23:08
octacianI'll focus on the one for now. My friend's computer boots to initramfs with the ash shell. Won't actually boot up.23:08
k1lwas the system fine before? what did he do then?23:10
octacianOnly a week ago he was having the same issue. Reformated the HDD and reinstalled Ubuntu. Was fine until this morning. He opened GIMP which gave an error about swap space. I told him to do the normal thing, restart your computer. Then instead of rebooting, we get the ash shell. And something about initramfs23:11
YankDownUnderoctacian: Is is safe to ask if this person has removed any USB storage devices prior to the reboot? Sometimes a USB mass storage device will cause BIOS or GRUB to get slightly confused...just asking.23:13
octacianYankDownUnder: he had a mouse plugged in. Laptop. That's all.23:14
naccouroumov: well, i think that functionality (which i can't find in my 16.04 system, tbh), is just wrapping dnsmasq (or maybe iptables). Both of which probably can be configured to do what you ask. I assume you mean you only want your connection to be shared to some connected subnet (and not all)?23:14
YankDownUnderoctacian: "Mass Storage"...either which, you should get him to check the BIOS boot order, then if all else fails, run the process for rescue.23:15
octacianOK. BIOS boot order. HDD should be first?23:16
YankDownUnderoctacian: Try that FIRST...if that does not work, then use the rescue liveUSB or CD/DVD...but yeah.23:17
octacianYankDownUnder: computer froze at "Toshiba" boot screen. Will try again.23:17
naccthis sounds like unstable hardware23:17
suadkfHi I need help installing Ubuntu server. It wont' recognize my wireless usb adapter23:17
naccif it's freezing at BIOS level?23:17
YankDownUnderoctacian: Toshiba. Right. Power the machine down for at least 15 seconds. When a Toshiba hangs at the POST, there's usually a REAL issue.23:18
suadkfIt recognizes it when I install desktop ubuntu/lubuntu/cubos or any other desktop linux23:18
suadkfbut the server says something about dchp23:18
octacianToshibas always have real issues.......23:18
suadkfnybody got a solution?23:18
naccsuadkf: you probably need to install wireless-related pacakges. I doubt server comes with them by default23:18
suadkfyes so how23:19
suadkfthat's my adapter23:19
ouroumovnacc, basically I had the following problem: My laptop was sharing connection to another machine connected by cable on the subnet but my phone's hotspot used too, so when the cable was plugged in connection was dropping very fast because of the conflict23:19
Egyptian[Web]https://thepb.in/p/48hY2LW9AoztR tgm488323:19
octacianYankDownUnderL turned it off for about 15 seconds. Still stuck.23:19
octacian* YankDownUnder:23:20
ouroumovnacc, I wanted to achieve Phone -> Laptop -> Other machine23:20
suadkfanyone :(23:20
YankDownUnderoctacian: Unplug the power supply. Remove the battery. Let that sit for about 30 seconds. Replace the battery, then plug in the AC. Boot the machine. See if it hangs at the POST again, please.23:21
naccsuadkf: does the interface show up (`ifconfig -a`) ?23:22
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: yea, that's a virtual package23:22
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: what version of ubuntu are you on?23:22
Bassemi have an old game run through playonlinux but it need 720*576 resolution but my screen is 1920*1080 so when i run it start but keep on loading screen and can't quite it when i try alt+tap i see small part of desktop and can't quite or select andy thing else23:22
suadkfwhere would I enter that in?23:23
suadkfhow do i get to the console23:23
octacianYankDownUnder: looks like we are still stuck. Gonna try again. Won't worry about trying to get to SETUP yet.23:23
naccsuadkf: at a terminal prompt?23:23
naccsuadkf: do you have a console?23:23
suadkfno i'm still trying to install it23:24
suadkfshould i install it first then worry about netowrking?23:24
naccsuadkf: yes?23:25
suadkfoh sorry23:25
naccsuadkf: i don't know, that's up to you23:25
suadkfi'll install first23:25
suadkfone sec23:25
YankDownUnderoctacian: You might want to go through the BIOS and just double-check all the settings - sometimes in doing so, you "wake up" the HDD..."sometimes". Had one recently like that...unfortunately, it was the HDD and was lucky enough to "wake it up" long enough to back it up before replacing the drive.23:25
sojauswhere are startup apps listed? /etc/init is where a search led me but it's not right23:25
k1lsojaus: ubuntu uses systemd since 15.04.23:26
k1l!systemd | sojaus23:26
ubottusojaus: systemd is the default init system for Ubuntu 15.04 onwards. For information on transitioning from upstart to systemd, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemdForUpstartUsers For a guide to basic service management with systemd, see https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-systemctl-to-manage-systemd-services-and-units23:26
octacianYankDownUnder: we are definitely stuck on the first boot screen, where it says "Toshiba \n Leading Innovation"23:27
sojauskll so should they bein /etc/systemd ?23:27
YankDownUnderoctacian: Well, read my last message.23:27
k1lsojaus: its quite complex. better have a read of that wiki page if you are really interessted23:27
Egyptian[Web]tgm4883:   14 lts23:28
sojausI was just looking for a dirctory somewher that listed all startup apps...not that simple?23:28
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: can you pastebin the output of "dpkg -l | grep linux-image"23:28
Egyptian[Web]https://thepb.in/p/y8h6P9WmKgNUO the output shows rc for the kernel i want coz i manually tested it was available23:29
octacianYankDownUnder: what good does that do me? I'm stuck before I can get to BIOS. I press F2, but nothing. Frozen.23:29
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: ok, so "apt install linux-image-3.13.0-88-generic"23:30
YankDownUnderoctacian: I shan't say that "Google is your friend" as that is redundant. As soon as you power the machine one, hit "ESC" and "F2" repeatedly...23:30
k1loctacian: are you sure that is not a hardware issue?23:31
Egyptian[Web]tgm4883: yup that works but not the command i pasted (it was generated via ansible)23:31
octacianYankDownUnder: nothing yet. Will try again. k1l: I don't know. It might be.23:32
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: well that seems to be the wrong package anyway I think23:32
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: wouldn't  you want "linux-image-generic"23:33
MishariSsssssugar craaaashhhhh23:33
Egyptian[Web]i do not see the version i need for linux-image-generic23:34
octacianYankDownUnder: it seems pretty stuck. Still nothing.23:34
YankDownUnderoctacian: Are you savvy enough to remove the BIOS/CMOS battery?23:35
suadkfalmost done installing :)23:35
suadkfnacc you still on?23:35
octacianYankDownUnder: I can. My friend was talking about doing that a while ago. Not for that purpose, but, we should be able to manage it.23:36
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: setting aside why it's not working with the link provided by ansible, why don't you just tell ansible to install "linux-image-3.13.0-88-generic"23:36
* tgm4883 isn't super famaliar with ansible23:36
Egyptian[Web]didnt work either :(23:36
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: well that sounds like an ansible issue then, you already said you could install the package via apt23:36
Egyptian[Web]i have tried many many combinations of the name .. and version23:37
naccsuadkf: for now, yes23:37
Egyptian[Web]dont think so  .. coz i took the ansible generated command and stuck it into the command line and it failed in the same manner23:37
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: there shouldn't be any variations of the name, it's linux-image-3.13.0-88-generic23:37
suadkfok it's done :)23:37
suadkfso i type in   ifconfig -a right23:37
YankDownUnderoctacian: If you're savvy enough to do that, what you can do as this - remove the BIOS/CMOS battery. Remove the HDD. Boot the machine withOUT the BIOS/CMOS battery - force it into BIOS setup. Save the BIOS setup. Power off. Replace the HDD. Do the same. That might wake it up. If it were here in my place, I have a "cradle" that I use for removing HDD's from laptops and I mount them as externals...saves time and money...23:37
naccsuadkf: yes, and pastebin the output23:38
Egyptian[Web]not found .. also nacc said earlier that is not the version number23:38
pennTellerHi guys, can anybody shed any light on how to setup different domains for email on ubuntu server 12.04?23:38
suadkfk one moment please23:38
naccEgyptian[Web]: yes, it's not hte version number, it's the pacakge *name*,23:38
tgm4883Egyptian[Web]: Don't specify the version number. The package name is "linux-image-3.13.0-88-generic"23:38

suadkfhow do i get it to pastebin?23:40
octacianYandDownUnder: BIOS/CMOS battery sits with RAM. Guess it's simple on this model.23:40
octacianNow to find find out whether we have a replacement...23:40
Egyptian[Web]tgm4883: !! <speechless>>23:40
