solarbirdIs that secretly a setting somewhere that I can adjust? it's not in gnome-tweak-tool00:37
solarbird(so i imagine it's something at the X level.)00:38

solarbirdreproduced across two different drivers (the nvidia proprietary and the open source one... um... I forget the name) so I don't think it's the driver.00:40
solarbirddid not do this on the same hardware in 12.04 lts00:40
solarbirdIt's Just Weird. Like, is there a "respect transparancy" sort of setting somewhere?00:40
Ben64that's covered under "your display settings"00:41

NitrigaurThe point release was 6 days ago and I'm on 14.04, why haven't I got a dialogue yet asking me to upgrade to the latetst version?00:43
Ben64!ltsupgrade | Nitrigaur00:43
ubottuNitrigaur: The automatic LTS upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 was scheduled when 16.04.1 LTS was released on July 21st, but has been postponed for one week due to final bug testing.00:43
NitrigaurBen64, that's unfortunate, but better stable than buggy I guess.00:44
subsumeubuntu will automatically upgrade....?00:44
Nitrigaursubsume, It's not Win10 ;-)00:44
subsumesounded scary00:45
subsumei've never used a dist-upgrade in my life00:45
Ben64dist-upgrade just updates your packages00:45
Ben64you should do that often00:45
NitrigaurI have upgraded distro's from 9.04 on on the same machine.00:45
NitrigaurAnd I'm using Ubuntu since version 5.0400:46
solarbirdubottu is pretty smart, i keep thinking it's a person00:47
ubottusolarbird: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:47
Nitrigaur^ Now, that reply00:47
solarbirdnitrigaur: by contrast, i have never had a dist-upgrade in ubuntu _not_ be a trainwreck00:47
Ben64again, dist-upgrade just updates all your packages, it doesn't get you a new version of ubuntu00:48
solarbirdor I should say, a version upgrade.00:48
ubottuA dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.00:48
solarbird(sorry, but it's true. works great on debian tho')00:48
Ben64almost every problem duing an upgrade is due to 3rd party packages00:49

whitephoenixHey guys something happened to my secondary hard drive while I was installing gentoo onto a usb stick just for practice. After booting back in normally, my secondary hard drive had to be removed from fstab to boot. It seems to have a boot flag now, gparted says unknown filesystem, but strings /dev/sda | less lists my files that are on it, how can I restore it to working order?00:51
Ben64solarbird: doesn't matter00:51
solarbirdben64: most certainly does! that's my /home partition and it wouldn't let me include it in the install without formatting it because the installer decided it was ext2 and By God Would Not Accept Otherwise.00:52
Ben64just don't check the format button, done00:52
solarbirdben64: (ext4 is correct)00:52
OerHekswhitephoenix, sounds like you installed it to the wrong device, or the bootloader to the wrong device, dunno about gentoo00:52
Ben64it doesn't matter if it says ext200:52
solarbirdben64: NO. it would declare it ext2, then fail to mount it correctly as ext2, OR, if I told it it was ext4, it would INSIST upon formatting it, or refuse to install.00:53
whitephoenixOerHeks, but it does say my files are still there, I was very careful to put everything on the usb not my hard drive00:53
solarbirdben64: "mount as ext4 and do not format" was _not an option_.00:53
Ben64solarbird: you can mount ext4 as ext2, ext2 as ext4. it still doesn't matter00:54
solarbirdben64: I ended up letting it make a /home on / and adding it to fstab later.00:54
solarbirdben64: NO. The installer would try, and fail.00:54
Ben64you did it wrong then00:54
solarbirdben64: It's the _installation GUI_. there are _very few ways to do it_.00:54
whitephoenixI get "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1" when I try to mount it. dmesg | tail says EXT4-fs (sda): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem00:54
Ben64whitephoenix: try testdisk00:56
OerHekswhitephoenix, is this UEFI?00:57
whitephoenixBen64, doesn't that require having another hard drive that is larger?00:57

ducasseIOF: he has never mentioned problems logging in, so afaik he has that.07:46
IOFducasse encyrpted data is encypted data login has nothing to do with it07:47
ducasseIOF: yes, because pam unlocks an ecryptfs-encrypted /home with your login password.07:47
IOFMaxou88 if you havent decypted it then the data is useless untill you can07:48
IOFducasse really thats pretty insecure if it does07:48
ducasseIOF: why? a passphrase is a passphrase.07:49
Maxou88i m really confused ..07:49
ducasseMaxou88: you can log in and see your homedir, right?07:49
Maxou88how can know really how muck disk space use the encryption ?07:49
IOFencrypted data needs a pass phrase why else would you bother encrypting it07:49
Maxou88of cours i can see all dir07:50
ducasseMaxou88: good, then just backup what you want.07:50
IOFthat sounds like very lame encryption07:50
ducasseIOF: your login password _is_ the passphrase, in effect. (it's actually used to unwrap your passphrase, but...)07:51
IOFducasse no it isnt not with any drive encryption Ive come across anyway07:52
ducasseIOF: ok, i'm just ignoring you now.07:52
IOFlike I said lame encyption if it is07:52
Maxou88so I pluged my external drive07:53
trijntjeMaxou88: encrypting your data takes 0 extra space07:53
warbaquelogin password and encryption password shouldn't have anything to do with each others unless you set them up to be same07:53
trijntjeso there is no point in removing the encryption for that reason07:53
Maxou88trijntje so why when i launch baobab07:54
Maxou88to see disk usage for each folder07:54
Maxou88in my home07:54
warbaqueusually you encrypt the whole block device so it'll look like it's full at all times07:54
trijntjeMaxou88: because linux pretends like it also has all your files unencrypted, but thats just a trick07:54
ducasseMaxou88: you are actually reading the encrypted data07:55
trijntjesecretly it decrypts the files in the background the moment you need them07:55
Maxou88I have my $user with 20GO and .ecryptfs same size ?07:55
trijntjeMaxou88: yeah, the $user dir is fake, it just reads the .ecryptfs through and interface that decrypts it on the fly07:55
trijntjeits the same data07:55
ducasseMaxou88: .ecryptfs is what is actually using space.07:55
IOFducase your miss advising07:55
trijntjelike I said, encryption takes 0 extra space, all that is present on the harddisk is the .ecryptfs folder07:56
Maxou88ok so there is not point to delete encryption because disk usage07:56
trijntjeMaxou88: correct07:56
ducasseMaxou88: no.07:56

IOFk1l no it doesent apt /aptitude both read the sources.list08:39
IOFthey may overwrite anything in them thats why the Linux community advices to use the .d dir for overrides08:40

kittykittybit weird that the iso is out but not the upgrade though08:41

IOFyeah but opeencl has nothing to do with nvidia08:59

IOFyuji dont know but its probably reading diresctly from the chipset09:03
YujiManual probing shows HD8610G, so I'm not sure why Xorg is so confused.09:03

AciD`is it possible in ubuntu 14.04 to install multiple version of ruby (via rvm) in place of the default ruby package (on which many application depends). I ask since I cannot find a way to install scss now..11:19

AciD`apt-get -f install  --force-all11:24
adroit_machine_ok, thanks AciD`11:24
AciD`this will just force that libsqlite3-0_3.8.2-1ubuntu2.1_i386.deb package to overwrite the duplicated file11:24
adroit_machine_it doesn't work, AciD`. I get this  error message: E: Command line option --force-all is not understood11:25

Blakes5Would anyone have an idea why when I run gnome ubuntu my system would randomly crash whenever playing video games or watching videos but is rock solid if I use any other window's manager?11:51
ikoniacould you define "crash"11:51
Blakes5Freeze...lock up...require a reboot11:51
ikoniaas in the whole machine physically locks11:51
Blakes5Yes as in even the keyboard pressing caps lock will not light caps lock indicator....hard lock11:52
ikoniaso that suggests a panic of some sort11:52
YankDownUnder"any other window manager" - ?11:52
ikoniawhat app are you using to watch the videos11:52
Blakes5Right now I'm running xfce411:53
Blakes5I can also run fluxbox.....11:53
ikoniathats the desktop11:53
ikonianot the window manager11:53
Blakes5no crashes11:53
YankDownUnderAh...right...so Unity "crashes", but the others don't...?11:53
Blakes5I suppose11:53
ikonianeed to clarify11:53
ikoniagnome or unity11:53
ikoniaand what video app11:53
streulmaHello, if I run the bash scripts from the terminal it works, if I run outside the sh and choose Run in terminal (with ask setting in nautilus) then it won't work11:54
Blakes5Initially when the system was installed it would randomly freeze within 10 minutes. I attributed that to nourveau (sp), removed it installed nvidia drivers.11:54
ikoniastreulma: depends what the script does11:54
ikoniaand you need to define "won't work"11:54
ikoniaas thats like me saying "fix it"11:54
streulmash script.sh start ikonia11:54
ikoniastreulma: thats not really info11:55
Blakes5ikonia, anything.....youtube, vlc11:55
ikoniaBlakes5: ok - so those are two very different things11:55
ikoniaand they work in very different ways11:55
Blakes5and playing a video game will also elicit a lock unless it's a fresh reboot.11:55
streulmaikonia it's a shell script with start stop11:55
ikoniastreulma: yes, but you're not really saying what it does11:56
ikoniastreulma: why don't you paste the shell script,11:56
Blakes5It seems like I can play video or games between reboots but not both,11:56
ikoniaBlakes5: but this doesn't happen when you are running other desktops11:56
Blakes5But now that I'm not running gnome.....it's rock solid11:56
ikoniaBlakes5: you said when using gnome it crashes at the start11:57
ikoniaBlakes5: could you take a moment, gather up the info - double check it then paste a summary11:57
Blakes5before I removed nourveau11:57
ikoniaas you've given quite conflicting info11:57

ZteamThis never happened with any previous Ubuntu image I used....12:38
justxuxMaybe you can find some info about this in release announcement,or try download another image,this one can be corrupt12:39
Zteamjustxux, I did read release announcement and the installer works perfectly on another computer (and earlier verions of the Ubuntu live ISO works on both computers without any issues :-/12:41
justxuxZteam, maybe try other boot options12:43
Zteamthe only two workarounds I can figure it out would be: 1 install a previous version of Ubuntu and then upgrade it once system is installed or 2, download the server edition and install from that one12:43

alkisgdalto, the problem you're mentioning is related to easybcd, you need to remove and reinstall the grub entry there, it's not related to linux or ubuntu14:22
daltook - so you are saying that if I run update-grub (with sudo?) from Terminal in either Mint or Ubuntu it should fix the issue? WIll the Windows bootloader remain default?14:22
virtuosojIs Unity/Compiz more taxing on gfx hardware or less than Gnome/Mutter?14:23
alkisgYou can tell grub to boot windows as the first choice, but you should really let grub manage your mbr, not windows/easybcd14:23

YankDownUndervirtuosoj: It's dependent on the graphics card, really - however, overall Gnome/Mutter is going to be less overhead/overall "hungry"...obviously, Unity/Compiz is going to require more GPU power to push effects...14:25

adroit_machine_will do, alkisg14:28
alkisgdalto, you haven't explained the reasons why you prefer windows to manage the mbr though, while it definately doesn't know anything about linux, so you need a second proprietary software and *then* grub to be able to load linux... that's a whole lot more mess than just using grub in the first place14:29

daltolet me rephrase then .... if I were to fresh install 7 and then Ubuntu and then Mint (overwriting Ubuntu GRUB with Mint GRUB) using GRUB as the default bootloader then could I feasibly do a backup of ALL partitions on a single drive using Macrium Reflect free and not face the same issue I am now?14:34
BluesKajadroit_machine_, we have to put up with so called experts in here ...I'm used to it , just make sure you update and upgrade after you reboot14:35
alkisgadroit_machine_, BluesKaj, if I run: sudo apt purge libsqlite3-0 in my system, it uninstalls more than 500 packages14:35
alkisgadroit_machine_, BluesKaj, if you run it, but press cancel, how much does it uninstall for you?14:35
alkisgBluesKaj: you give bad advice, and you don't want people to correct you14:35
alkisgBye from me.14:35

BluesKajdalto, to include the windows or linux OS partitions in grub, run,  sudo os-prober, then run, sudo update-grub15:04
davido_Guest782 : The choice of what to install for a programmer is based on the tool chain that works well with his organization and with the languages he intends to work with (programming languages).15:04
Guest782actually i don't know.... the point of getting linux is because I am going to college to be a computer engineer. And i was told Linux would be better for me to use than windows15:04
davido_Guest782 This isn't really an Ubuntu question though.  The answers are going to be opinion based, and will not be unique to Ubuntu -- will apply to all linux environments.15:04
k1lGuest782: install ubuntu and start using it. so you get familiar with it.15:05
rattkingronin312123 thats definitely worth a bug report15:05
adalim using linux because when u use tor with windows it leaves leaks15:05
davido_Guest782: Again this will depend on your college's CS program. What if they teach C++ using MSVC++?  Anyway, not Ubuntu specific.  I'm a developer, and my IDE is linux's tools, and vim.15:05
Guest782i am using it one a virtual machine for now...15:05

davido_That's not a support question.15:07
daltoBluesKaj: pastebin.com/Cpb3jd7p for os-prober - safe to run the next command? What is this going to do BTW - set GRUB as default? I really don't mind ... just asking?15:07
zykotick9davido_: fyi, to highlight someone with a factoid use "!foo | nick"15:07
subsumei like it because its almost as stable as debian and has mostly current support for things i need but i don't use it as a desktop15:07
k1lits easy to use and got a lot of software in the repositories. so you can easily install them.15:07
davido_thanks zykotick915:07
subsumeEriC^^: hoping to get some help with a bootloader setup. :)15:08
Guest782well i mean there are many differet types of linux.... so i am asking why should i pick ubuntu?15:08
subsumeGuest782: for what use case15:08
Guest782programming etc15:08
k1lGuest782: i just told you. its one of the most widespread distributions.15:08
BluesKajdavido_, updating grub will list all your OSs including windows , assuming that's whatn you need15:08
daltoBluesKaj: thought that one might have been meant for me :)15:09
BluesKajdalto, yes it was :-)15:09
subsumeGuest782: go search for the libs you need in the pursuit of programming and you may find that ubuntu has those packages more up to date than some other ones15:09
daltoBluesKaj:so GRUB will take over then? Correct?15:10
subsumei'm sure there are other flavors of linux worth using i just don't really spend my time on that problem anymore, i have moved onto other ones in a ubuntu context15:10
subsumehaving a huge active channel on IRC is also great too15:10

daltoas I said before I would have liked to figure out a way of sticking with the Win bootloader but hey ... I'll try anything once my friend! :)15:11
Guest782hmm well thank you subsume15:12
subsumedalto: heh i am looking for the same thing15:12
subsumehere's one thing i don't get15:12
BluesKajdalto, not possible , it's not going to affect your windows boot or login , why would you want that ..it will look exactly the same once you choose to boot windows anyway15:12
subsumebecause its not reversible, BluesKaj15:13
subsumeor its not reliably reversible15:13
daltoBluesKaj: true dat ... running update-grub now - let's see what happens then15:13
Crazymofohey by any chance do any of know why effi is so hard to get to boot a linux disto off usb15:13
subsumeif you decide you don't want ubuntu on the box you are in some shit trying to get windows back to a normal state15:13
subsumeI don't get why I can burn a USB and it doesn't need a bootloader but when I install ubuntu it does15:13
subsumemaybe the install disk does have a bootloader and i just don't know it15:14
BluesKajsubsume, no kidding , but I don't understand his wanting the windows bootloader when the mbr is till there , it just has grub on it15:15
subsumei was installing ubuntu next to windows but i don't want grub15:15
daltoBluesKaj: holy bat **** - what is /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.0-21-generic?15:15
subsumedoes anyone know if the liveCD has a bootloader?15:15
BluesKajdalto, that's your linux kernel15:16
davido_Grub is pretty simple. If you ever get to a state where you wish to revert to windows only (instead of dual boot) you can just set grub to not show a splash screen, and to auto-select Windows.  Then it becomes invisible.15:16
rypervenchesubsume: It does. How else would it boot? :) Isolinux.15:16
subsumerypervenche: okay so can i just install the bootloader to the actual partition that i install ubuntu too15:17
adalsubsume install grub15:17
subsumebasically, could i just manually select the actual partition to boot from each time i want ubuntu and leave the rest the heck alone?15:17
rypervenchesubsume: On Ubuntu, you would use syslinux instead. And yes, you could use it if you wanted.15:17
subsumeeh its my friends windows machine15:17
BluesKajsubsume, yes if you want15:18
daltoBluesKaj: phew! I saw vm and thought it found the Linux VM's I am running in Workstation 12 - one of which I am speaking with you whilst on right now - I am n00btastic - I know I know ... give it up :)15:18
subsumei just want to do some temporary machine learning stuff but i don't want to invade his system with any changes15:18
davido_well, there's always VirtualBox15:18
subsumeBluesKaj: you think during install i can just select /dev/sda5 (my to be ubuntu partition) and the normal windows bootloader will be untouched? then i can F11 in and boot /dev/sda5 manually15:18
Guest782yeah virtualbox :)15:18
subsumenah can't use vbox15:18
subsumefor some reason tensorflow libs won't have access to the GPU15:19
subsumethere's a huge warning about it in the install docs15:19
Guest782well this has been an interesting first time experience with linux have a good day everyone15:19
MeliooIs it theoretically possible to create a functional persistent usb with a set size for the usb stick, then backup the drive and its file system to an iso, to burn it back to a simular sized thumb drive15:19
daltoBluesKaj: so I guess reboot and see if GRUB has taken the reigns then?15:19
BluesKajsubsume, yes , but you have to choose  manual partitioning , and make sure you know which partition is the target ahead of time15:19
rypervenchesubsume: I think a persistent USB would be the best for you then.15:20
subsumerypervenche: i have only one usb on me, so i can't really figure out how to make it15:20
subsumei need some medium to create the install disk15:20
subsumecould i just make that medium a local unused partition?15:20
MeliooSubsume, universal usb creator15:20
BluesKajdalto, did you run sudo update-grub , if so then your good15:20
BluesKajyou're good15:21
subsumeMelioo: what's that15:21
MeliooMakong it persistant depends on the machibe you boot in and the arch of the distro15:21
subsumeBluesKaj: yeah i do manual partitioning anyway15:21
BluesKajsubsume, look into dd or disk-cretor15:21
MeliooSorry on a mobile device so spelling sucks15:21
subsumei am on osx15:22
subsumeor windows15:22
MeliooSubsume reseach persistant usb, there is some basic and complex understanding of it15:22
MeliooSubsume hence universal15:22
BluesKajsubsume, think dd works on OSX15:22
subsumeBluesKaj: but if i can just select the specific partition during installation to put the boot loader there too, and it won't invade the windows bootloader, that's a good enough solution for me. i just wasn't sure whether that would even work15:23
MeliooSubsume, specific releases and arch do persistant also15:23
MeliooSubsume, usb 3 should voot and run fast too15:24
subsumeif i make changes will they persist?15:24
MeliooThats what persistant refers to15:24
Apachezanyone in here with ubuntu 16.04 who also runs steam and managed to get windowed mode borderless (it was borderless in 15.10 but not anylonger in 16.04)15:24
MeliooIts a live boot, that persists (writes changes)15:24
MeliooSo if you set up wifi, shut down, boot again, it has your pass15:25
MeliooSo question is once made, can you spin an iso from it as a backup to make another15:26
daltoBluesKaj: yep ran update-grub and still get the Windows bootloader ... can boot Windows 7 no problem via the Windows entry but select Linux entry and no GRUB ... still at grub rescue> _15:26
subsumewell i only have 8gb15:26
subsumei should probably hold off that's a bit tight15:26
adalCan i expand the partition in which i have ubuntu in, if so how?15:27
MeliooAdal, you can make changes with sizes of the disk using partition editors .15:28
adaldoes ubuntu come with one?15:28

MeliooI bought a number of dual output video cards15:50
adali mean plug monitos15:50

MeliooThen run windowed graphics or full screen15:59
MeliooIt might be opengl handling that15:59

bttebI'm planning to upgrade to 16.04, but not sure if 10 GB is enough for the root partition16:13
danimal2if ubuntu is not shut down properly, does it do something like windows scandisk to fix any OS issues?16:13
MeliooBtteb dpkg -L package name16:13
ducasseadal: if there is only one dvi connector, you can only connect one screen.16:14
MeliooDanimal how did you install it16:14

ubottuBtrfs is a filesystem available for Ubuntu. It is not recommended by default, and should not be used for important data. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/btrfs17:16

GnomeKrisI think the similar naming is causing my issue18:07
ducasseGnomeKris: you can just mount the 3tb outside of /media and chown it, the name doesn't really matter.18:09

ubottubugzilla.redhat.com bug 1299192 in gnome-disk-utility "[gnome-disk-utility] Error formatting volume. Error waiting for LUKS UUID: Timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark, 0)" [Unspecified,New]18:25
fractalthat is my exact error though, and recent18:25
ikoniafractal: thats not an old bug or version18:26
ikoniathere is very little info or activity on it18:26
fractaloh no :(18:26
ikoniafractal: have you checked launchpad to see if there is anything referenced against the ubuntu package ?18:26
ale__Xpr_X0, for a million files it's likely to take a long time just to make ls18:26
Xpr_X0ale__ : my man md5sum * does not go into directories18:26
GnomeKrisOkay, got the drives right...fastest way to copy paste without taking forever?18:26
ikoniacopy and paste ?18:27
GnomeKrisducasse^^ ikonia^^18:27
GnomeKriscopy paste is showing 12 hours for 276gb18:27
GnomeKristhere has to be a faster way18:27
ikoniaGnomeKris: why ?18:27
ducasseGnomeKris: copying takes as long as it takes :)18:27
ikoniaGnomeKris: a disk will only spin at a certain speed, you only have a certain ammount of ram / cpu in your system, you only have some much room on the bus18:27
ikoniawhy must there be a quicker way ?18:28
GnomeKrisbut I don't have...11 hours to wait...18:28
ale__Xpr_X0, then try this: find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum > md5.txt18:28
GnomeKrisI have 16gigs of ram...so that's probably not my problem18:28
ducasseGnomeKris: then you can't copy everything.18:28
ikoniaGnomeKris: just wait it out18:28
fractalikonia: bugs https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-disk-utility/+bug/1318954 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/util-linux/+bug/1059872 look very similar to mine18:28

GnomeKrisI'm going to google18:29
* ptah drinks wine18:29
ikoniafractal: not sure they are the same18:29
ale__Xpr_X0, md5sum -c does the checking18:29
ikoniaGnomeKris: why does there have to be a faster way ?18:29
ale__Xpr_X0, what errors do you get from md5sum -c ?18:30
fractalikonia: not really, but part of the error message matches, not entirely, but it looks like util-linux is to blame maybe?18:30
GnomeKrisbecause it's 2:30 pm and I can't be up at 2:30 am working on this thing.18:30

Xpr_X0thanks folks18:33
razor1101GnomeKris: well, the write speed has a limit. You should get a ssd if you want faster transfers18:34
fractalikonia: can you tell me how to check? anything beyond the GUI is probably something i don't know how to do18:34
ctjctj_GnomeKris, a couple of tissues can be used as ear plugs.  But yes, those jet engines are loud.  But it keeps your drives from burning up.18:34
ikoniafractal: there should be a text file in /var/log  have a look at that18:34
GnomeKrisI'm a poor white kid from the ghetto...Not enough money for a 3tb ssd18:34
fractalk thx18:34
fractali am going to reboot real quick brb18:34
ctjctj_GnomeKris, are you using btrfs?18:34
ikoniafractal: it won't fix anything, but may give you more info18:34
Rohan_KumarHi all!18:34
Rohan_KumarI've a 64 gb pendrive which was initially formatted as exfat18:35
GnomeKrisctjctj, not that I'm aware of. Just a simple highlight, cut, paste.18:35
GnomeKrisLove me some gui.18:35
ikoniactjctj_: he's using ext418:35
Xpr_X0ale__ : thank you. It is working18:35
ale__Xpr_X0, good to hear that :)18:36
Xpr_X0gonna take a long while though, cause I am sha1ing18:36
geniiRohan_Kumar: You might want to consider installing the package exfat-utils then18:36
Xpr_X0thanks anyways18:36
ctjctj_ikonia, *nods* if he is having disk issues and dollars issues then using btrfs with an SSD cache might give him resilience and speed.18:36
ale__Xpr_X0, you should parallelize things a bit to make it faster, but it's definitely not trivial18:36
ikoniactjctj_: way over kill18:36
Rohan_KumarYes, i installed it. Everything was running smoothly18:37
ikoniactjctj_: he's just an impatient kid copying a load of data18:37
GnomeKrisscrew it, while I'm doing this cp, I'll write my 16.04.1 usb18:37
ikoniaGnomeKris: yeah, thats not going to help18:37
Rohan_Kumarthen i did this stupid mistake by formatting it as fat3218:37
ikoniaputting more i/o on the system18:37
GnomeKrisikonia: impatient...yes, kid...no.18:37
ikoniaGnomeKris: I can only assume from your behaviour and comments18:37
ikonia"but I want it now now now"18:37
GnomeKris27 my man. got three kids of my own...Yet another reason this waiting isn't going to work.18:37
ikoniaan adult would understand limitations18:38
ctjctj_ikonia, *grins* good point.  Inpatient is I.   Having 15TB of spinning disk I know exactly how long it takes to replace a 3TB disk....   OUCH18:38
Xpr_X0ale__ : you mean like using all the four cores of the cpu? isn't sha1sum command using them automatically?18:38
Rohan_Kumargenii: Now when i try to access the pendrive i get : http://pastebin.ca/366715318:38
GnomeKrisSee, when you assume. You make an ass out of u and me.18:38
Rohan_KumarPlease help me . I don't understand how to format it back to fat3218:38
ale__Xpr_X0, no, it shouldn't. You could easily guess by looking at the current cpu usage18:38
ayoubHI EVERYONE18:38
Ben64Rohan_Kumar: if you formatted it fat32, why would you try to mount it as exfat18:38
ale__Xpr_X0, if you have 4 cores you should launch 4 processes18:38
MishariI just came here.18:39
Misharito say18:39
MishariI love you18:39
elias_aOh my... problems like GnomeKris makes me feel world is going to collapse.18:39
Xpr_X0ale__ : you mean a different sha1 command for a fraction of the files right?18:39
ale__Xpr_X0, yes18:39
Rohan_KumarBen64: I read somewhere on internet that fat32 are not compatible for disks > 32 gb18:39
Xpr_X0but it is going to only make thing harder to manage a bit18:39
Ben64Rohan_Kumar: not correct18:39
Xpr_X0there is simply a lot of files18:40
Rohan_KumarBen64: sure about that?18:40
elias_aGnomeKris: Your problems make my struggle with my inboard diesel engine a light thrill!18:40
Ben64Rohan_Kumar: yep18:40
ale__Xpr_X0, are the files distributed evenly in subfolders?18:40
OerHeksRohan_Kumar, you mean man 4 gb filesize on fat3218:40
ale__how many subfolders in first level?18:40
GnomeKrisHa, this pc issue is simple right now. I'm taking a break from digging the fuel pump out of my infiniti and replacing it.18:41
Rohan_KumarOerHeks: I have a 64 gb usb18:41
fractalikonia: i am in the syslog but it is absolutely over my head18:41
elias_aGnomeKris: Now we are talking real issues!18:41
Xpr_X0I have a feeling that going classically on this thing is a bit safer ale__18:42
fractali will keep looking though and maybe i will see something18:42
elias_aGnomeKris: So your piece of junk gives you headache and you come here to complain? :P18:42
fractali'll recreate the error now, and keep track of the TIME18:42
geniiRohan_Kumar: Also, looks like you're trying to mount the entire device,eg: sdb instead of a partition, like sdb118:42
fractalthat will help me isolate at least what activity i am directly responsible for i suppose18:42
Xpr_X0It is going to be over after about four hours. 170 GB of files... I am patient enough18:42
Rohan_Kumargenii: Now i formatted it to fat via executing :  sudo mkfs.vfat -n "PENDRIVE" -I /dev/sdb18:43
odroidhi everyone18:43
GnomeKriselias_a I guess I'm just having a bad day18:44
geniiRohan_Kumar: The maion problem seems to be that you are formatting the raw device instead of making a partition on it then formatting that18:44

Rohan_Kumargenii: I partitioned my pendrive into two disks.19:12

Rohan_Kumargetting this now..19:18
FlipBillHmm.. how did you mkfs that drive?19:19
rangergordHi. I'm trying to install a python library using pip. It fails cause it has a build step which, in Ubuntu 14.04, required python3-dev. I'm now on a brand-new 16.04, and if I try to apt-get install python3-dev, I get "The following packages have unmet dependencies: python3-dev : Depends: libpython3-dev (= 3.5.1-3) but it is not going to be installed. Depends: python3.5-dev (>= 3.5.1-2~) but it19:19
rangergordis not going to be installed. ". Should I be reporting a bug to the maintainers?19:19
ctjctj_Rohan_Kumar, what does blkid /dev/sb2 say?19:19
rangergordor is this something local19:20
Rohan_KumarIt just gives nothing19:20
ctjctj_Rohan_Kumar, try with sudo but that implies to me that the mkfs did not take place.  But I don't use MS filesystems so could be wrong19:21
ctjctj_Sorry, that should have been blkid /dev/sdb219:21
ctjctj_Left out the "d" the first time19:21
Rohan_Kumarctjctj_:a fsck on the disk gives : http://pastebin.ca/366716919:21
=== auser_ is now known as chala
ctjctj_I would expect that.  blkid will identify the UUID and filesystem type of some (most,all) block special devices.19:22
FlipBillThere is apparent confusion about the type of FS in the partition.19:23
FlipBillfsck assumes ext2, earlier commands tried to operate as if it is exfat via FUSE.19:23
FlipBillWhat is your intention?  What type of FS do you want to have?19:24
Rohan_KumarFlipBill: Initially when i bought it today it was exfat, then i formatted it to fat, then ext2, then partitioned my usb and two fat32 partitions19:24
ctjctj_Rohan_Kumar, what FlipBill is saying.  blkid might help us to know what the drive/partition thinks its filesystem is.19:24
Picirangergord: can you pastebin the output of apt-cache policy libpython3-dev python3-dev python3.5-dev  please?19:24
ctjctj_Rohan_Kumar, partitioning a drive as "fat32" does not place a fat32 filesystem on that partition.  It just lets boot loaders know what to expect on that partition.19:25
FlipBillRohan_Kumar, did you use a mkfs command of some kind?19:25
ctjctj_FlipBill, he reported that he did it on the full drive before he created the partition.19:26
Rohan_KumarFlipBill: I tried mkfs.exfat earlier19:26
Rohan_Kumarlike this: sudo mkfs.exfat -n "PENDRIVE"  /dev/sdb19:26
FlipBillctjctj_, Ah yes, I see confirmend.19:26
* Rohan_Kumar did it when it was not partitioned19:27
FlipBillRohan_Kumar, that's your problem.19:27
ctjctj_Rohan_Kumar, did you "mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb1" or "mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb2"?19:27
FlipBillyou formatted the drive extent, not the partition.19:27
ctjctj_FlipBill, I concur.19:27
Rohan_Kumarctjctj_: Yes i did that after partitioning19:27
ctjctj_vfat could be fat19:27
rangergordPici: sorry, I was away trying stuff. I fixed it, I had to install the latest Security/Recommended updates. apt-get update + upgrade showed no results, but that's because I had Security and Recommended unchecked in Software Updater.19:28
FlipBillRohan_Kumar, it would likely have formatted it in such a way that the first partition is marked as occupying the entire drive.19:28
FlipBillThat could get messy.19:28
FlipBillYou need to start over and issue a mkfs for each partition inividually.19:28
Rohan_KumarFlipBill: hmm19:28
FlipBillsee the commands ctjctj_ gave you above.19:29
alkisgRohan_Kumar: if you run mkfs /dev/sdb, you destroy the partition table, so there's no sdb1 or sdb2 anymore, you need to create a new partition table19:29
Picirangergord: yeah, I had a feeling it was some sort of repository issue, glad you got it worked out.19:29
FlipBillalkisg, thaks, I neglected to mentioned that.19:30
FlipBillStart with fdisk, then do the two mkfs.vfat commands.19:30
Rohan_KumarFlipBill: I did the fdisk part before..19:31
alkisgFirst fdisk, then mkfs /dev/sdb ==> it destroys the results of fdisk, it's like you didn't do it at all19:32

k1lptah: the oldest ubuntu still in support is 12.04. older than that is not supported and has massive security issues. if you have slow and old hardware look at Lubuntu21:18

k1lpeppa: what flash issue?21:21
bugwormI am using Ubuntu for many years, on many different machines now. And i love it. Now with a new batch of machines, i am running into issues with the rotation sensors. I already know that this sensors have no standards, and its most of the time a "specific" workaround for that. Is there any group of people trying to improve this situation ? Eg. making a graphical interface, that 1. detects if your sensor is supported in some way,21:22
bugworm2. let you rotate the screen with a custom key command and 3. let you decide what to deactivate according to your screen rotation ? eg. Keyboard or Trackpad ?21:22
peppaIt does not run on certain websites that require the newest version of flash.21:23
peppaI tried pepperflash21:24
e-ventAnyone able to help with a small bash script issue?21:24
k1lpeppa: are you sure its not a malware tricking users into loading their malware software? because that is a known issue on a lot of warez sites21:24
MonkeyDuste-vent  there's also #bash21:24
e-ventWhy does this work: "if [ Something ] || [ Somethingelse ]" but if [ Something || Somethingelse ] doesn't.21:24
e-ventThe former triggers on any content21:25
e-ventlatter even*21:25
peppaThe sit I am specifically having an issue with is xfinity tv so I don't think so21:25
\9e-vent: because [ is actually a program21:26
\9e-vent: and || is a bash language construct21:26
e-ventWhat is the latter actually doing?21:26
\9"[ Something" or "Somethingelse ]"21:27
\9i think you can use double brackets [[]] to get around this?21:27
\9since it's an actual language construct unlike [21:27
\9and when i say it's a program, there literally is a /usr/bin/[21:28
k1lpeppa: it works in chrome. so you need to tell them to unlock the regular linux flash version21:28
e-ventI'd search for it myself21:28
e-ventbut I literally have no idea what to google21:28
e-ventOk I see its like test?21:29
e-ventBut surely that logically still would do what I expect21:29
pepparunning chromium but I will download latest chrome and try I guess. thx21:30
e-ventI get that [ is a program21:30
\9well the thing is that if you use [, the || takes lesser precedence over the brackets21:30
\9[ supports -o for a logical or21:30
e-ventbut if I say to test, IS "FOO" "BAR" OR "BAR1"21:31
e-venthow is it saying yes?21:31
\9e-vent: i can't tell since i don't know your use case21:32
bprompte-vent:   one may note, there's a #bash  :)21:34
e-ventI'll ask em21:34
e-vent\9, in effect21:34
e-ventI am just comparing two strings21:34
e-ventSo literally like FOO and BAR OR BAR121:35
bprompte-vent:     I do js, and the || would on that case, seems to do a logical check, to default to the latter, like js would, but in bash, as \9  said, I think you need to use the -o for that in the brackets21:35
\9we figured as much but the question is why is it doing that21:35
e-ventI fixed it by having two sets of brackets and conditions with the OR between em21:36
e-ventbut I#m asking #bash now21:36
peppatried chrome. does not work. thx for the suggestion though.21:42
bpromptpeppa:   got url, so we can check?21:46
e-ventWill PPP automatically reconnect via the modem if the line goes down and back up21:54
e-ventor do I need to restart the machine / service?21:54
peppaoddly enough one show works. but everything else does not. technology throws me for a loop sometimes. thx for the help tho.21:55

k1lpacketswitcher: what do you need to know?22:41
curlyearsk1l:  it turns out the problem I was having was due to, er "inconsistencies" in the code  of the "Hybrid EUFI" Award BIOS on this motherboard.  No wonder you guys were unable to successfully debug it with me.  The guy who wrote the article I found spent a very long time debugging and analyzing the probllem.22:42
packetswitcherthis is the (unknown unknown) problem.. i need to know everything from zero.. i don't wanna bug you here since it's not related but I don't know where to start22:42
curlyearsit turns out that basicly, while it IS possible to use > 2TB drives with this motherboard, it is quite trickty and probably not worth the effort.  I probably ought to get a different motherboard22:43
k1lpacketswitcher: well, you could join #ubuntu-offtopic to chat and look here if you can help some people or ask if you need help. learning by doing. irc is not that difficult :)22:44
