jswagnergeneral instability makes me think hardware issues04:33
r00t_i had the freezing issue on 16.04 so i downgraded and still having same issue04:33
cfhowlettr00t_, so kodi only?  other players are OK?04:34
jswagnerespecially when you say "always when i stress the system, but occasionally other times too"04:34
wasqHi. I am unable to automatically execute a script at startup for some reason. The script works fine and I've added it to 'application autostart' in 'session and startup' but it doesn't execute at startup for some reason. Can someone help?04:34
r00t_it freezes often.......i have only tried kodi to be honest04:35
cfhowlettr00t_, well there's your next test then.  try vlc player04:35
jswagnercfhowlett: r00t_> it happens no matter the quality. and its happened during normal use as well, but kodi always makes it freeze04:35
glitchdhello all04:35
glitchdneeding a little help04:35

glitchdubuntu 16.04 xubuntu desktop04:36
jswagnercfhowlett: i think it's safe to rule out player software as the problem04:36
r00t_damn.......it froze with that to but this time it unfroze after a few seconds.....but no error messages04:36
glitchdi had burg installed on top of grub because it looked better. it developed a problem where it would not show the chosen theme so i opted to reinstall it04:37
glitchdafter that i could not get back into my ubuntu installation04:37
r00t_theres got to be something i can do04:37
glitchdfinally i was able to get back in after burning a live cd to 16.04.1 and reinstalling grub04:37
glitchdnow here is where the weird problem is, pulseaudio stopped working completely04:38
cfhowlettr00t_, start your player from command line and see if you get error messages:  vlc mediafile.mp404:38
glitchdi have reinstalled it several times already04:38
glitchdbut still cannot get it to work04:38
cfhowlettglitchd, stop reinstalling04:38
glitchdim really trying to save this install because i dont have a seperate home partition nor do i have the external media to backup all of the info i have on the install04:39
glitchdcfhowlett, 1 step ahead of ya04:39
glitchdcfhowlett, im here arent I?04:39
jswagnerr00t_: i think you might need to consider that it's a hardware issue -- check system temperatures and disk health.  if this is a desktop with a dedicated GPU, ensure it's not jammed up with dust and dirt04:39

glitchdis there any way to reinstall without losing data if im on 16.04.1?04:40
r00t_i did a disk check already when i was having the same problem on 16.04. nothing came up04:40
r00t_glitchd if you have your /home on a seperate partition you will still have your files and settings04:41
r00t_jswagner thanks for your replies.....is there a command i can run that will tell me if its hardware related?04:42
glitchdr00t_, seriously, i just said that i dont have home on a seperate partition..04:42
cfhowlettglitchd, do a "something else" installation, do NOT format your home or change the partition in any way.  set the current /home as /home and you *should* be ok04:42
mi11k1does anybody know how to put a ubuntu you on Android M6 media boxes?04:42
mi11k1I know how to flash them, but I don't know what image I can use04:43
r00t_is there a way to flush out the cause of my freezes?04:43
cfhowlettr00t_, should be logged.04:43
r00t_okay, but i dont know what command to issue for that04:43
mi11k1on boot or shutdown, or both?04:44
glitchdcfhowlett, i did do that, unchecked format, however when it was about to start it said that everything i folders like /var /other folder was going to be deleted, and im not sure if im gonig to lose data because of that or not. it didnt say it was going to format home. but im just being cautious04:44
r00t_sorry ive been off linux a while im a bit rusty04:44
cfhowlettglitchd, /var is a system folder not in the /home chain.04:44
cfhowlettr00t_, no apology needed.04:44
mi11k1use cat filename04:44
glitchdcfhowlett, right, but i just wanted to make sure before i shoot myself in the foot.04:44
jswagnerglitchd: just to be clear: you only have one partition and /home exists within it, correct?04:45
mi11k1or maybe if you type dmesg it will show04:45
r00t_thanks man.....so what command do i need to enter? i have terminal open04:45
glitchdwell i have several partitions, ubuntu is on its own partition tho04:45
glitchdcfhowlett, ^^04:45
mi11k1so nobody knows how to put Ubuntu on one of these ARM  boxes?04:46
jswagnerglitchd: one ubuntu partition, and /home exists within it?04:46
jswagnermi11k1: probably not, there might be a dedicated channel for the hardware you're interested in04:46
glitchdjswagner, yes04:46
cfhowlettmi11k1, pretty esoteric scenario.  ask again at reasonable intervals or see the dedicated channel for your hardware04:46
glitchdjswagner, ubuntu and swap are both on an extended partition04:47
r00t_guys i read a post online that points to a possible issue with my graphics card or driver......how do i found out if thats the case?04:47

r00t_graphics is intel baytrail x86/mmx/sse204:52
mi11k1what drivers did you install04:52
mi11k1do you have non-free enabled?04:52
r00t_i didnt install any...........and i believe so but im not entirely sure04:53
r00t_i went into the sources and enabled some04:53
r00t_but it should be noted that nvidia did get installed on here04:53
r00t_nvidia xserver04:53
r00t_but i didnt install that04:54
mi11k1install nvidia-detect04:54
mi11k1I think it will tell you what other packages you need04:54
mi11k1nevermind it's in intel04:54
r00t_it says unable to locate package04:54
mi11k1nvidia's another company has nothing to do with your card04:55
r00t_okay what do i need to do? btw i looked on software update app and it says no additional drivers needed04:55
mi11k1doesn',t ubuntu have some third-party driver tool04:57
mi11k1like a GUI that installs the proprietary drivers over River04:58
mi11k1in the menu It's called driver manager04:58
r00t__its r00t04:59

r00t__im sorry :(05:07
r00t__not trying to be a pain05:07
r00t__i just really want this issue fixed05:07
YankDownUnderIn a terminal, type: sudo ubuntu-drivers list => that shows the drivers required for the system. If  you want to install them, type: sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall => follow the prompts, probably have to reboot the system after that.05:08

mi11k1when you boot, edit the grub and after the nosplash add nomodeset05:24
ubottuAs you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)05:24

orangesparki have to join someother05:26

cfhowlettorangespark, sudo fdisk -l tells you what?  and be patient please05:27
mi11k1how did how did these people even find Linux if they've never even done a Google search before05:27
orangesparkit gives me all the drives05:27
dragon5611Only see quiet  Splash05:27
orangesparkabout 6 partitions05:27
YankDownUnderr00t__: Right oh...so, what would be a really good idea is to get the machine booted...and once you've gotten the machine booted and you're at the desktop, to open a terminal, and run: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade ==> and after that's finished, and you'll most likely have to reboot, THEN see if the stability of the system has changed, hmm?05:27
cfhowlettorangespark, so what tool is NOT showing you what you want to see?05:27
orangesparkwhen insatlling ubuntu05:27
orangesparkit shows no operating system found05:28
mi11k1magic, voila!05:28
dragon5611Lol looked through over 22 pages of info. Also read the grub manuel05:28
orangesparkand when i select something else05:28

cfhowlett!kernel | gvandeweyer also consider asking the #ubuntu-server channel05:36
ubottugvandeweyer also consider asking the #ubuntu-server channel: The core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)05:36
YankDownUnderr00t__: Ah...so you're on 14.04...you've not moved up to 16.04...and so, WHEN did your system start locking up? Was it directly after you installed Ubuntu?05:36
r00t__YankDownUnder no....it was after i started using it. i was on 16.04 but i downgraded because i was having the exact same problem05:37
gvandeweyercfhowlett: It was a mainline deb that I installed. I'd like to try it to check if a bug is resoved (mentioned that it should in 4.7).05:37
YankDownUnderr00t__: "Downgraded" - what - you wiped the system and started over from scratch?05:37
r00t__YankDownUnder yes. i downloaded the iso for my current version and did a fresh install05:38
YankDownUnderr00t__: Right oh...and can you tell me how much RAM you have in this system?05:38
r00t__YankDownUnder 4GB. 3.8 usable05:39
r00t__YankDownUnder it was the gnome version i tried with 16.04 and thats the version i was also having this issue on05:39
orangesparki have a windows live usb05:40
YankDownUnderr00t__: Yes - because the Intel graphics card is sharing the RAM...hence 3.8gb instead of 4gb...so what can you tell me about when it "locks up"? What are you doing when it does that?05:40
cfhowlettorangespark, windows?  this is ubuntu support ...05:40
orangesparkwhen i used bootrec /scanos05:40
r00t__YankDownUnder last time i was on here......the past few times before that i was watching a movie and it froze05:40
orangesparki want to install ubuntu05:40
iulianr00t__, this is hapend only with Kodi ?05:41
orangesparknow in the windows when i tried bootrec it shows no windows installations05:41
r00t__YankDownUnder i tried to access the console and nothing05:41
cfhowlettorangespark, bootrec is a windows tool and is not supported here05:41
r00t__iulian no, but most of the times it happened i happen to have been using that05:41
dragon5611In on #grub asking also05:42
cfhowlettorangespark, suggestion: go to windows and sort your windows issues first.  it will make ubuntu installation much easier05:42
r00t__YankDownUnder when it locks up the mouse and keyboard fail to work05:42
YankDownUnderr00t__: IRC isn't very "intensive" as far as applications go, however, running an app that is processing a video, well, that's a bit intensive...that being said, something you might want to consider is trying a different "Desktop" - you've tried Unity and Gnome - both of which are relatively heavy handed on using the CPU...there is LXDE and XFce - they're much lighter on CPU usage...has anyone mentioned that to you yet?05:42
YankDownUnderr00t__: Yeah - I've "seen this" before - here, and also here at home...with "low end" client machines...05:42
orangesparkcan you u give me the chanel name05:43
cfhowlettorangespark, ##windows05:43
r00t__YankDownUnder i was already familiar with those desktop environments but to be honest i didnt think to try them05:43
iulianr00t__, i google it a bit they have addons called Exodus it's buggy05:43
r00t__iulian ran it on tons of linux systems. never any issues05:44
YankDownUnderr00t__: This is something that you might possibly consider - and either of those desktops can be installed right over the top of what you've already got...easy done...05:45
iulianr00t__, http://bestforkodi.com/kodi-crashing-fix/05:47
r00t2yankdownunder sorry system froze again05:47
r00t2YankDownUnder Im installing lxde now and im gonna try it out05:48
YankDownUnderr00t2: So, if you want to at least TRY to get some stability, you can open a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop ==> which, when it's done doing what it does, you can simply logout, and then login to a "lighter" desktop - and give that a go...05:48
YankDownUnderr00t2: LXDE or XFce - doesn't matter - they're lighter on the system, bro...and at least you can start to narrow things down...as well, in all honesty, the machine you've got isn't truly a "work horse" as it were.05:49
r00t2YankDownUnder brb gonna log into lxde. ill come back here and let you know if it fixes the problem05:50

dragon5611Lol take it as no one here knows grub commands well enough to help.05:52
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Patience.05:52
dragon5611I have it. Just been at it learning for two days straight.05:53
YankDownUnderdragon5611: What exactly is the issue you're having?05:54
pvddi'm gonna dd my whole ssd (cause of boot nd windows b*shit causing low start), but i'm worried about my uefi vars05:54
dragon5611My boot files are in a folder called temp boot in the same file system.05:54
pvddwill dd erase them?05:54
pvddand brick my computer?05:55
dragon5611Wanting to just merge the contents of temp boot to my boot folder in grub.05:55
r00tAgainYankDownUnder so far no freeze05:55
orangesparkis there anyway to fix the mbr of windows from ubuntu05:56
orangesparki have a live cd05:56
r00tAgaini even opened kodi and played a movie.....only let it play for a couple minutes tho so that doesnt mean im out of the woods but so far so good05:56
YankDownUnderdragon5611: A bit of a dangerous operation - I'm not going to ask the logic behind that, but I do wonder if you realise how tricky this can be, hmm?05:56
YankDownUnderr00tAgain: Keep plugging away...05:56
dragon5611Very actually05:57
r00tAgainYankDownUnder im gonna stay in this room so i can update you....thank you so much for having the patients to try to help me05:57
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Have you thought about using "grub-customizer"?05:57
dragon5611Since I actually made the mistake of moving them to the file called temp boot. Lol05:57
r00tAgainto repair master boot record, reformat hard drive to NTFS filesystem using Gparted05:57
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Take a look at this, mate... http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2016/04/install-grub-customizer-ubuntu-16-04-lts/05:58
orangesparkthere is windows which i need05:58
orangesparki cant format that05:58
dragon5611Lol well I have no disk or sub. I'm stuck in the grub menu. Which means no access to tty1-705:58
orangesparkand i dont think my mbr exists in c: at all05:58
orangesparksomehow its installed in the one key recovery drive05:59
dragon5611If I had tty at start instead of grub I could just manually connect and rd download05:59
orangesparkwhich is 7-00mb in size05:59
r00tAgainif your master boot record is messed up, your windows install is the least of your worrieds05:59
dragon5611Or usb05:59
r00tAgainwith a messed up mbr you wont have a functional OS05:59
YankDownUnderdragon5611: So you don't have a USB or anything that you can boot to?05:59
r00tAgainsorry ill let yank help you06:00
dragon5611Not currently.  Hence why I have racked my brain going through solely grub command06:00
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Fair enough, fair enough...hang on a sec...06:01
dragon5611All my files to boot are in the folder called temp boot.  Can even use ls (hd0,msdos) \ and see at the very end the file. Appreciate you.06:02
YankDownUnderdragon5611: How did you move them into "temp boot"?06:04
dragon5611ls (hd0,msdos1) /06:04
dragon5611Well manually06:04
orangesparki dont know06:04
orangesparkthere is a bootmgr file and other boot folders in the onekey recovery drive06:05
YankDownUnderdragon5611: So in doing an "edit" on the grub boot options, have you tried to add the new path to the boot entry/entries?06:05
dragon5611Before I rebooted I was to move g parted to my boot. Was setting up my partitions at boot.06:06
dragon5611Ile tell you the error as well as what is entered06:06
YankDownUnderdragon5611: And you have NO means by which to boot - at all - with an Ubuntu USB or CD/DVD...?06:06
dragon5611Lol it's a harsh situation06:07
YankDownUnderdragon5611: And do you have a means by which to obtain something?06:07
dragon5611Not currently.06:07
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Because you're kinda put yourself between a rock and a hard place, right now, ya know...06:07
dragon5611Ok in the command line. I have currently as my location.06:08
THeBossIsHereis swap partition can be common between fedora and ubuntu06:08
YankDownUnderdragon5611: IF it was me, I'd be doing my best to edit the paths for the bootloader/chainloader in grub -> to point to where the stuff is in "temp boot" - but you're going to be stuck - again - because you're going to have to run "grub-update" or "grub-install" - which you're not going to be able to do...unless you can get to a point where you can "chroot" into your old system and have access to the proper binaries...does that make06:09
dragon5611Linux.       /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-76-generic06:10
dragon5611In that line and initrd line06:10
dragon5611I should be able to simply replace/    /boot with temp boot06:11
dragon5611It does06:12
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Without ME knowing exactly where things are, just make sure the path(s) are absolutely correct, hmm...06:12
dragon5611Lol so grub is useless on this06:12
orangesparki want to see the partition table while installing ubuntu06:12
orangesparkits just showing single partition06:13
YankDownUnderorangespark: ...and I want to see dancing Chinese girls whilst installing Ubuntu...06:13
orangesparkwhy dont you ask ur mother06:14
orangesparkmay be she can put a gif of her good old times06:15
YankDownUnderorangespark: She's 15k km away...06:15
YankDownUnderorangespark: :)06:15
orangesparkmr flinstone06:15
dragon5611Lol doesn't work with just editing the path to temp boot06:15
YankDownUnderorangespark: Meanwhile, what's going on? You're having an issue with partition(s)?06:15
orangesparki am totally on my nerve now06:15
orangesparksorry for being rude06:16
dragon5611Is there a way to get to tty before,grub?06:16
YankDownUnderdragon5611: Get a liveUSB or CD/DVD...you're going to hose things even worse if you don't...hmm...06:16

orangesparki am trying to dual boot with ubuntu and windows06:16
YankDownUnderorangespark: Are the partitions you're not seeing "Windows 10" partitions?06:16
orangesparkwindows 806:16
YankDownUnderorangespark: Same thing, same issue. You're not able to see or do anything with those partitions because of the fact that "Windows" is using a modified "hibernate" on the drives - which therefore locks them from any other OS (except a Windows OS)...so you have to boot into Windows, turn off all hibernation - and probably best to do a manual "chkdsk -f" on the drive as well - just to be on the safe side.06:18
orangesparkchkdsk -f from live usb ubuntu06:19
YankDownUnderorangespark: Nah, bro - you're going to have to actually boot into Windows - and turn off hibernation (powercfg -h off) - can't really be safely done any other way, mate.06:20
orangesparkafter turning of hibernate then what06:21

ruijanpallaswhen i select all my files and folders in my home folder, it takes about 7Gs, but when I right click thunar says that the space usage is 13 gigs :s06:22
YankDownUnderorangespark: When you've done that - and, like I said, run the "chkdsk -f c:" on the system, you can then safely and easily install Ubuntu and you won't have any issues with seeing the "Windows" partitions and whatnot...and grub won't have any issues trying to establish "boot" installation - does that make sense?06:22
ruijanpallasis it possible that the hidden files double the space usage06:22
YankDownUnderruijanpallas: Yes. Open a terminal and type: du -sch06:22
YankDownUnderruijanpallas: THAT will tell you the true usage in your "home" directory.06:23

ruijanpallasthe thing is tho, i dont have almost anything major installed so what could be taking so much space06:24

ruijanpallassome old dosbox games and diablo206:24

YankDownUnderr00t_: If you want something "easy" on a low end system, you can check out "Bodhi Linux" - it's great for low end machines and older stuff, too...very light...06:25

YankDownUnderorangespark: Firstly, I can only see what you describe to me. I am blind. I cannot read minds, I do not know the past, nor the future. I can only go on exactly what you tell me. Secondly, I do this for a living - exactly what I described to you enables me to do dual-boot systems for clients. That being said, is there something I do not know - something you're possibly not telling me that would shed a huge amount of light on this06:47
YankDownUnderentire situation?06:47
ruijanpallashmm, i may have messed up with playonlinux, hold on and i baste06:47
b4rruijanpallas: holdinnng06:47
orangesparki will pastebin it06:48
b4rorangespark: great thanks06:48
dragon5611Well. Lol I know it's possible to boot from the file called temp boot. Which is in the same sub folder with the rest of the system files.06:48
orangesparkgot it?06:50
orangesparki have shed more light i gues yank06:50
YankDownUnderorangespark: So the /dev/sda - your "Windows drive" - you're not installing on that drive, right?06:51
ruijanpallasor is that just the way playonlinux works that it needs to stackup like that06:51
b4rruijanpallas: what's the problem? the directory structure? because it looks fine06:52
b4rto me06:52
Nika7Where get tiny WM on shell?06:52
orangesparki have only sda06:52
orangesparki am installing in sda06:52
orangesparki have unallocated space too06:52
orangesparkfor ubuntu06:52
YankDownUnderorangespark: So you're either going to have to delete a partition or resize a partition - which you would use "Gparted" to do that...06:53
orangesparki was thinking of creating a new one during ubntu installation06:53
ruijanpallasb4r, yea I guess I'm reading it wrong then :s06:53
b4rorangespark: yeah you got like 500 million sectors left yeah?06:53
b4rruijanpallas: maybe idk too much at all of PoL06:53
YankDownUnderorangespark: You can't create a new one if there's already a zillion partitions - so you have to verify which of the partitions you have that you can either delete or resize...06:53
orangesparkhow much is the limiti06:54
orangesparki am afraid that deleting one partiotion make my windows unaccesable06:54
b4rthere's a limit? (even with extended partitions?)06:54
dragon5611Lol as long as you have the space06:54
b4rthought so06:54
YankDownUnderorangespark: Look - if you resize /dev/sda6 (150gb) to give you, say, 50gb, that would be more than enough space to have a good Ubuntu installation...hmm?06:54
Nika7Where get tiny WM on shell?06:54
b4rNika7: google06:54
b4rNika7: i3 / dwm06:55
orangesparkbut that would make another partition06:55
orangesparkwhich u said i cant06:55
orangesparkto make a partitoin i already have 45 gb unallocated06:55
YankDownUnderorangespark: If you leave the "table" the way it is, no, you can't do anything at all. However, if you resize a partition, you can (or, well, linux can) have the system create the required partitions to run a valid system.06:56
orangesparkhow much06:56
dragon5611Lol I tried to figure out one night how to rewrite and delete data from  a dvd-rom. Know it's not possible. However,  figure anything is in the realm of possibility.06:57
orangesparki dont understand i already resized my partitoin06:57
orangesparkand got 45 gb of it06:57
YankDownUnderorangespark: Like I said - if you can free up (by resizing) 50gb - or even 20gb - that should be more than enough.06:57
orangesparkfor doing the same06:57
dragon5611Gparted is easy to use.06:57
orangesparkthat 200gb u r seeing is wrong06:57
orangesparki did shrink it06:57
orangesparkro get 45gb06:57
orangesparki dont knw why its not showing up06:58
YankDownUnderorangespark: Then what is the new partition layout? I'm only seeing what you pasted.06:58
orangesparkme too06:58
orangesparki am surprisde06:58
YankDownUnderorangespark: If you've created space by resizing, then Gparted should be able to create a partition in the unused space....06:58
Nika7Where get tiny WM on shell?06:59
dragon5611Only problem I seen was not making two initial partitions of equal size to work with from installation.06:59
orangesparkand in ubuntu live usb06:59
orangesparkits showing the partitoin resized06:59
orangesparkbut nothing on the partition table which i pasted06:59
orangesparkwhy is it so06:59
orangesparkit should be showing 160gb06:59
ruijanpallasb4r, the problem was that I was confused what is taking so much space, but maybe it's just the Pol works, the folder structure06:59
dragon5611Then you are stuck with one big partition unless you make a live g parted CD with a iso07:00
orangesparkbut its showing 20007:00
ruijanpallasthe way*07:00
YankDownUnderorangespark: Did you create a new partition in the free space?07:01
dragon5611Either way appreciate the help. Lol I know how to make a live cd. Think more or less I made the mistake of moving my boot files to learn how to use grub.07:02
YankDownUnderorangespark: 1.) You've got this huge hunk of free space now, right? so 2.) You need to create a partition in that free space so that 3.) The installer will see it and do something with it...easy as.07:03
orangesparkso you are saying that creating a new partition will fix everything07:03
orangesparki mean its not showing any of the windows partitions07:03
YankDownUnderorangespark: Create a partition. Click apply. Exit Gparted. Start the installation. Await any errors.07:03

sruliwith samba is it possible to make a user only read and add files, (not write to existing or delete)? my scenario is all PC's are linux but 1 windows VM, that VM is what worries me, if it gets infected with some crypto malware i dont want it to be able to damage the files on the share08:03

sveinseis there a way to disable a service (such as mysql) and have it manually started when I need it, and that does not interfere with apt upgrade? I tried using systemctl disable, which works perfect for disabling, but causes dpkg to fail as it expects to be able to start the service on upgrades...09:22
ikoniaif the service is disabled, packages shouldn't need to start it unless there is a real need (eg: a table upgrade)09:23
sveinseikonia: yet it does. perhaps this is a bug in mysql, but it requires to be able to restart and run the service when upgrading09:24
ikoniasveinse: have you actually looked at the package manifest to see if the start is forces, or just a poorly written condition09:24

Aussie_mattMrElendig: I'll try with the 64bit iso, see what happens12:02
chaitanyaHi All12:02
chaitanyaI am new to ubuntu ..12:03
chaitanyaany good guide12:03
chaitanyaAny one here ?12:03
bazhang!manual | chaitanya12:03
ubottuchaitanya: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/12:03
dandelschaitanya, depends on what you want to do/know. I don't know any actual "Here is an Ubuntu guide":s, though (althoug they exist)12:04
dandelsnvm, bazhang beat me to it12:04
bazhang!rute | also this chaitanya12:04
ubottualso this chaitanya: documentation is to be found at http://help.ubuntu.com and http://wiki.ubuntu.com - General linux documentation: http://www.tldp.org - https://www.andrew.cmu.edu/course/95-799/rute.pdf12:04
MrElendigAussie_matt: you need a 32bit efi payload, but that isn't too hard to deal with12:05
Aussie_mattMrElendig: ? sorry I don't understand12:05
dandelshi raddy12:05
V7chaitanya: First time on Linux or Ubuntu !?12:05
MrElendigAussie_matt: if your uefi is 32bit, then you need a 32bit payload, but that is not that hard to get12:06
chaitanyaV7, Both12:06
Aussie_mattMrElendig: what do you mean by payload?12:06
raddyI have set lxc.cgroup.memory.limit_in_bytes = 4G in container config file, But it is not taking effect even after rebootingg the container.12:06
MrElendigAussie_matt: typically a bootloader to load your kernel12:07
Aussie_mattMrElendig: ah, ok gotcha12:07
Aussie_mattMrElendig: the good news it the 64 bit iso is recognised as efi! yay, so I'm at a boot menu12:07
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI12:08
MrElendigAussie_matt: then it sounds like you have a 64bit uefi and not a 32bit one12:08
MrElendigso all is good12:08
Aussie_mattMrElendig: no, I believe the 16.04 iso added 32bit efi12:09
raddyIs there any errors in my parameter ?12:10

sruliwith samba is it possible to make a user only read and add files, (not write to existing or delete)? my scenario is all PC's are linux but 1 windows VM, that VM is what worries me, if it gets infected with some crypto malware i dont want it to be able to damage the files on the share12:25
l9sde: sde1 sde212:25
l9how can i earse sde1 and sde212:26
Seveassruli: no.12:26
bekksl9: Why do you want to do that?12:26
l9bekks: well i am trying too dd image too /dev/sde12:26
sruliSeveas: so no way to allow a user to only add files to share?12:26
bekksl9: And what the purpose of deleting sde1/2 before?12:27
Seveassruli: correct.12:27
bekksSeveas: thats not true.12:27
MrElendigsruli: write a broker service12:27
sruliSeveas: how to i protect my share from a windows machine :-(12:27
bekkssruli: you could use ACL on your samba share.12:27
Seveassruli: kill the windows machine :)12:27
l9bekks: cause /dev/sde is only showing 950mb of a 16Gb sd card12:27
MrElendigsruli: by not giving random people write access in the first place12:27
sruliSeveas: i would love too its the only one remaining on the network but its needed use a device from a particualr supplier12:28
MrElendigl9: fdisk -l /dev/sde12:28
MrElendigl9: put the output on bpaste.net or similar12:28
sruliMrElendig: i am not giving random people access, i am worried from this 1 win machine if it gets a crypto malware or something12:29
MrElendigsruli: if you do then you have lost anyway, get some offline backup solution instead12:29
MrElendigl9: please don't use pastebin.com, see /q phrik pastebin.com12:29
OerHekssruli, sticky bit on a file should work stop file deletion, but writing in the file would still be possible.12:29
sruliMrElendig: havnt lost if user can only add files12:30
srulias a counter measure i have been making a offline backup of each file as soon as its written the first time... the device is now ~100 files per minutes at peak times, its consuming too much resources12:31
sruliMrElendig: whats a broker service?12:32
l9MrElendig: https://bpaste.net/show/32fd7393405512:32
MrElendigsruli: eg a web service that runs on the server where you have a file upload form12:32
MrElendigsruli: and a download form12:33
MrElendigsruli: you could also have some fuse based fs as a frontend on the client side, or similar12:33
MrElendigsruli: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message_broker12:33
sruliMrElendig: big hammer for small job.. sounds too complicated for me12:33
MrElendigsruli: there are ready to use solutions12:34
srulibekks: are you sure it can be achived with ACL? i read a little about samba ACL but did not see how to do that12:34
MrElendigyou can't do add only with acl12:34
ajksdhi there12:34
bekkssruli: It is a common task using ACL, for disallowing users to delete stuff.12:35
srulibekks: deleting is not enough.. malware can write to the file..12:35
ajksdI'm trying to figure out how to set my caps lock key to act as a ctrl modifier for my current user only through the gui. I'm on ubuntu 16.04.12:35
bekkssruli: Then you need to deny writes at all - aka read-only - and then your share is useless.12:36
l9MrElendig: do you see why i need too delete sde1 and sde2 ? when i use gparted the card only shows as 950mb12:36
srulibekks: useless as you say. thanks to MS i have a vunrabillity on my network which i cannot close12:36
bekksl9: if you plan to deploy an image to sde, you dont need to delete sde1 or sde2 before.12:36
ajksdI'd expect to find the functionality in system settings -> keyboard  or text input but I can only set the keyboard layout there12:36
srulithanks ya all... i am off to the sunny beaches12:37
l9bekks: well after the dd command nothing changes on the card and i have problems mounting root on it12:37
bekkssruli: dont use windows shares then. vulnaribility closed.12:37
bekksl9: did you unmount all filesystems before?12:37
bekksl9: and what was your very exact dd command?12:38
l9bekks: dd bs=1M if=image of=dev12:38
l9nothing fancy12:39
bekksl9: thats not the EXACT command you have been using.12:39
MrElendigthat fdisk output is strange, -l sde should have given the full partition lost12:39
srulibekks: as i explained there is 1 pc which has to have that crap required by a supplier to connect to their system (they use activeX) there is a scanner connected to it which scanns document, their site (activeX process it) but those docs need to be available to everyone on the network, the scan has to be initiated from the activeX so cant even scan it from linux PC12:39
l9bekks:  dd if=FreeBSD-armv6-11.0-RPI-B-302284.img of=/dev/sde bs=102412:39
bekksl9: And did you unmount sde1 and sde2 before?12:40
l9have never mounted them12:40
bekksl9: And how do you see "changes" on the card?12:40
l9at boot12:40
bekksl9: besser use a tool that shows you the partitioning layout, etc.12:41
l9bekks: what tool do you recomend?12:41
bekksl9: sudo fdisk -l, e.g.12:41
Aussie_mattMrElendig: just booted the desktop 64bit iso, looks good. It's on this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/331558195971?lpid=107&chn=ps12:42
l9bekks: https://bpaste.net/show/3b5db1163849 <- like that?12:42
bekksl9: looks good. And whats the issue with that?12:46
bekksl9: And using fdisk on a partition is pointless.12:47
l9i have sde as 953,7 mb when it should be 16Gb12:48
bekksl9: Then your SD card is broken.12:49
bekksl9: Throw it away and get a working one.12:49
Amm0nl9, I've seen this behavior with broken MBR from USB sticks. Try to write a new one.12:53
nexusguy59erv identify new2day12:55
l9Amm0n: already tried too dd /dev/null too it still the same. need too dig into it later but yeah i think i might have screwed the mbr12:57
bekksl9: the card is broken.12:57
OerHeksnexusguy59, i think you want to change password12:59
TheFlyHi ya'll.  I'm running a windows machine but had a virus that made it fail to boot, and also removed the partition to my second (phyiscal, D) drive.  I just want to know if this is what a normal "C" drive with windows should look like http://imgur.com/0FrE1Ud12:59
* l9 looks at the card nope it looks good not a single dent in it13:00
bekksl9: Cool, so you can see defects inside a flash chip. How do you do that?13:00
l9sde                     8:64   1  14,9G  0 disk13:02
l9thats how i see it is not broke13:02
bekksWhere do you see that?13:02
bekksl9: And fdisk tells you the device smaller than 1G.13:03
l9and dmesg tells me it is ignoring prtions13:03
bekksl9: remove the card, wait 10s, put it back in, and pastebin dmesg afterwards.13:03
bekksl9: you could try erasing the entire card, using dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sde bs=16M13:06
bekksl9: after that, run: "sync; sync;", remove the card, wait 10s, put it back in, and take a look at dmesg again.13:06
bekksl9: I doubt you ran that command, it takes longer than two minutes.13:09
bekksl9: and the timestamps from your paste are from your boot, not from after putting the card back in.13:10
bekksl9: can you pastebin "lsb_release -a" as well, please?13:11
l9dmesg -wH13:11
bekksdmesg -wH is not dmesg.13:11
bekksl9: and dmesg on Ubuntu does not supports -w nor -H. So which system are you on?13:12
l9it dosent?13:13
bekksWhich OS are you on, currently?13:13
l916.04 LTS13:13
bekksSo pastebin "lsb_release -a".13:13

OerHekshit the unity bar, systemsettings > appearance > behaviour - auto hide14:32
TheFlyOerHeks:  So I should make the D drive a Primary partition, as it is the sole partition on that physical drive?14:32
OerHeksTheFly, sure you can do that.14:32

peepsalotis there an app that will let me browse the contents of a .img file without mounting it14:34

setuidEmmeci, proxy between you?15:24
Emmecii have tried from 13:00 to now15:25
telboonsetuid: there's no /etc/X11/xorg.conf....haha15:25
setuidtelboon, Does your screen flicker anywhere elsse? or only when typing in term?15:26
telboonsetuid: so far 2 repeatable occassions (1) When i type in term when my mouse is in the terminal (causing cursor to disappear and screen to flicker) and (2) when i move my mouse to within VM (cursor disappear and screen flickers)15:27
setuidThe whole screen flickers?15:27
telboonsetuid: yes, the whole screen flickers (though my naked eye only manages to see black on the bottom section of the screen, but pretty sure it's not confined to any window)15:30
setuidSounds like either a bad cable/connection (unshielded HDMI or DVI cables can cause this) or your driver is trying t push a different refresh rate than your card/monitor can handle15:31
setuidSo in your X config, tame it15:31

ikoniahence why I'm asking to understand the situation16:19
k1lb4r: its very hard to help you if you cant/wont describe the whole setup and issue. the issue you have is not a standard issue. so the setup is important to find a fix for that. but i lost interest in helping if the users tries to hide the info. good luck16:19

FlavioZHello everyone, I have a upstart job that will initiliazes a python daemon. So far, I can stop and start the job/daemon without any problem. However, when I use command kill to simulate a crash I want upstart to respawn. After the kill command, upstart keeps running but python daemon is not longer running.

momkenpsycho, thank you very much, but what about GPU? I want to buy laptop with Core i7 4720HQ or i7 6700HQ and all these laptops have nvidia geforce GTX950-960-970-98016:29

momkenMay I encounter a problem with nouveau driver detecting these cards out of the box?16:29
psychomomken, nvidia have good propietary drivers, especially if you wanna play some games(better than amd), if you dont play any games nouveau driver will do all another work very well16:31
momkenpsycho, game on linux? no thanks. nouveau is enough for me and I don't want to install proprietary drivers, because sometimes I disconnect my OS and boot it on home PC16:33
momkenpsycho, So you sure about support of nouveau for GTX9xx?16:33
psychomomken, maybe you should buy laptop only with intels integrated gpu?16:34
momkenpyrony, I want to, but all laptops with strong cpus have geforce gpu too16:34
momkenAnd I can't configure and order, because I live in Iran. I have to buy preconfiged ones16:35
psychoi am not sure about support of gtx9xx by nouveau driver, but maybe on phoronix are some test about it16:35
okieiamanyone know offline Gps maps like Microsoft Maps metro app or Navit?16:35
momkenpyrony, yes, phoronix, thanks16:35
momkenpsycho, this page is so old. no value: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportMachinesLaptopsAsus16:36
psychomomken, dell xps is good serie of laptops but i dont know if you can order it16:41
psychoas i remember, you can switch off nvidia gpu and use intels gpu16:42
okieiamno if your gpu is optimus16:48
momkenpsycho, dell 15 with 2kg? yes it is amazing but I guess it is expensive here.16:50
momkenAsus N series is a good balance b/w price and performance16:50
okieiamsorry i mean not in reverse, mine is 940M and Hd 5500 so noway to off hd 550016:50
momkenbut is heavy with 2.7kg16:50
psychomomken, if you like asus n series, you need to buy it )16:52
momkenokieiam, optimus is a tech for auto switching gpu. right? I remember there was a problem with it in linux from previous days16:52
momkenpsycho, yeah. I more like asus g series, but it is expensive.16:52
momkenokieiam, so what happens in default ubuntu 16.04 (no drivers installed) on your laptop? please answer me16:53
okieiamyes I have to use new canonical ported driver for 16,0416:53
momkenokieiam, "canonical ported driver"? you mean nvidia's proprietary driver?16:54
okieiamif you let the system auto detcted and install the driver, it will break x16:54

OerHekswhat you mean with tabs i am not sure18:32
Vacuum_OerHeks:  latest dell has a laptop that is converted to tab but ignore that as its a laptop in any way18:32
Guest64126The partition table has been altered!  Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table. Syncing disks.18:33

OerHekstry it with live-usb ?18:33
Guest64126What possible can this be?18:33
OerHeksGuest64126, some bios versions can protect the mbr, or that disk is part of raid, or uses gpt ..18:34
EriC^^Guest64126, try sudo partprobe18:35
EriC^^the kernel needs to reread the new partition table, or you can reboot18:36

OerHekskulelu88, it does, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libpeas/1.8.1-2ubuntu2 but not that package.18:43
OerHeksdon't know how to get it, else by building yourself?18:43
OerHeksor upgrade18:43
kulelu88OerHeks: why does libpeas-python2loader not exist in the repos though?18:44

WhiteWabbitsomeone get bill gates daughter gf and must be a geek so he'll be pissed off.haha.18:45
OerHekswhy should it? kulelu8818:46
kulelu88OerHeks: because it is a dependency that is included within libpeas in future versions?18:47

Elec_AHi,I am "./configure"ing a source, but it needs a library, I have downloaded that library and I have compiled it. it has some .h, .o and .cpp files, how can I give the path of this library to configure ?18:53
kulelu88the plugin I used was from software centre also: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/gedit-developer-plugins/18:54
kulelu88the fact that it exists on the software centre but lacks the known bug dependency is interesting18:54
OerHekshttps://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+source/gedit-developer-plugins does not have that python package as dependencie. https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libpeas/1.8.1-2ubuntu218:56
OerHeksso file a bugreport then ?18:56
OerHeksi guess the answer will be: no, that plugin is not going to be ported..18:56
ioriaElec_A, a library usually has a .a or .so extension ... do you have it ?18:56
Elec_Aioria: no there is no *.so file in the path.18:57
WhiteWabbitElec_A: you may need extra options while compiling18:57
WhiteWabbitfor example include etc18:57
ioriaElec_A,  well, you first need to have your lib compiled... or you cannot link18:58
Elec_AWhiteWabbit: How can I see if I need a option. makefile ?18:59
kulelu88OerHeks: what if I just installed the .deb package of libpeas-python2 ? will that fix it?19:00
Elec_Aioria: I'm doing make all19:03
Elec_Aand I get no errors19:03
WhiteWabbitElec_A: i think you can apply the command right after the ./configure like --includes19:03
WhiteWabbitand add =/path19:03
WhiteWabbitit's been a while since i was compiling so my apologies.19:03

WhiteWabbitwhat dependencies it has and what's that you're trying to compile??19:04
kulelu88Elec_A: you should be careful about compiling software on your work machine. Any mistake (severe enough) could cause complications19:04
WhiteWabbitcan't you use apt-get install?19:04

AscavasaionBashing-om: I found out partially what the problem was the other day.  Upgrade from 14LTS to 16LTS broke desktop... had to reinstall gnome desktop.  but that just got me into X Windows, and that is riddled with other errors. Segment faults with console commands, popups for errors all the time.  Decided to do a fresh install from ISO.  Busy backing up stuff ands creating bootable USB stick.  Just wanted to let you know what the issue was, and to20:26
Ascavasaionthank you for trying to help me the other night.20:26
OerHeksarno_, with ldap i don't know howto tweak that20:26
gebbioneAscavasaion, what broke on ur desktop?20:26
OerHeksarno_, i would consider that as a security issue.20:26
Ascavasaiongebbione: Where do I begin :)20:26
gebbionewell ok i can tell u what is wrong on mine20:27
Ascavasaiongebbione: It froze on bootup with a waiting for UID 118 ... which I discovered was gdm.20:27
OerHeksi think the radeon driver only supports 2 screens, iirc20:27
gebbioneok i m not that blocked20:28
Ascavasaiongebbione: When I run anythign in console I get segmentation fault and notified that it did a core dump.20:28
gebbioneOerHeks, i have two screens but they are mirroring not extending20:28
gebbioneOerHeks, also resolution is rubbish20:28
Ascavasaiongebbione: I am continuously getting pop up windows warning me that Ubuntu had an error and to ask me to report it20:28
Ascavasaiongebbione: screen lock has borken, it does not come back from locked screem20:29
Ascavasaiongebbione: When I eventually manage to get it back, only sometimes, the mouse stops working.20:29
Elec_AHi, How can we know where is ./configure looking for libraries? because I have installed libcfitsio packages but It still gives me the error "CFITSIO is required.20:29
Ascavasaiongebbione: Sometimes the boot hangs, sometimes not.20:30
Ascavasaiongebbione: All in all the upgrade from 14 LTS to 16LTS was dreadful and something I would not wish on my worst enemy.20:30
gebbioneAscavasaion, that is really annoying ... still i am also stuck. I wish they had a prompt to say that ubuntu is stopping supporting radeon drivers and created new ones that dont really work20:31
gebbionei would not have progressed with upgrading20:31
gebbioneand this is version 16.420:31
xanguagebbione: by Ubuntu you mean Nvidia?20:32
xanguaAnd there are release notes, so yes it did20:32

arno_OerHeks: I'm talking about just the username. I still want to continue to enter my password every time20:34
mcphailElec_A: the ./configure script looks wherever the writer of the script has asked it to look. Many of them are generated by autoconf, and use pkg-config. Remember to add the -dev versions of any libraries you need20:35
tgm4883gebbione: IIRC, AMD dropped support for FGLRX on newer xservers, which 16.04 ships20:35
Elec_Amcphail: you mean the writer has specified it in configure.ac file ?20:36
martinSueIs this the right place to ask a usb-live ubuntu question?20:36
OerHeksarno_, nope i think it cannot be done, maybe someone else in this channel knows a tweak ?20:36
gebbionetgm4883, i read some stuff from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver20:36
gebbionebut still my question is 1) how to fix it and 2) if reasonable a warning on install would have kept me away from upgrading20:37

OerHeksarno_, you might want to reask in #ubuntu-server too20:38

MuriiI'm kinda in a hurry so an GUI app would be appreciated bekks20:39
Elec_Amcphail: it is using "AC_CHECK_LIB([cfitsio], [ffvers], [], AC_MSG_ERROR([CFITSIO is required.]))"20:39
bekksMurii: So open a terminal and use dd in there :)20:39
tgm4883gebbione: hmm, 5770 is old enough it should work with radeon I think. I'd have to check what my laptop has, but I think it's roughly that20:39
bekksMurii: you could have been done with that already.20:39
martinSueI'm wondering if it is possible to add a small data partition to my live-usb, and use that from within the live-booted system. The trouble i'm experiencing is that I can't mount it, it says "already mounted", I'm guessing because /dev/sdb is mounted ro at /cdrom ? Any ideas?20:39
Muriiwhat do I need to type? bekks20:40
Muriinot really that familiar with the command20:40
bekksMurii: That depends on what you want to do.20:40
gebbionetgm4883, so in the case where it is not working what is the best i can do?20:40
Ascavasaiongebbione: No, going to try a fresh install of 16 instead of the upgrade.20:41
mcphailElec_A: that simply tries to link against the library20:41
Elec_Amcphail: in the documentation says : "These days it is normally better to use AC_SEARCH_LIBS([gethostbyname], [nsl]) instead of AC_CHECK_LIB([nsl], [gethostbyname])."20:41
Elec_AI mean documentation of "autoconf"20:42
tgm4883gebbione: well you can either A) check your logs, see if it's throwing errors on something and try to fix that, B) try creating a custom xorg.conf file that specifies the correct info (since it sounds like it's not detecting your stuff correctly) or C) go back to 14.0420:42
Elec_Amcphail: but I don't know how to convert it.20:42
gebbionehow easy is c?20:42
tgm4883gebbione: reinstall20:43
tgm4883gebbione: well, backup and reinstall20:43
mcphailElec_A: that is beyond the scope of this channel20:43
Elec_Amcphail: oh, Sorry then. thank you for your help.20:43
OerHeksgebbione, maybe writing a proper xorg.conf can do the trick, expanded virtual desktop.20:44
mcphailElec_A: First port of call should be the Ubuntu repos, to see whwther the package exists already. Next port of call should be the developer, to ask why the libs aren't linking20:44
gebbioneOerHeks, unfortunately i know nothing about writing a xorg file for my card config20:45
martinSueNo ideas?20:45
mcphailElec_A: if the package already exists in Ubuntu, but you want to compile a different version, running "apt-get build-dep packagename" will often install all the needed packages to compile20:46
Elec_Amcphail: unfortunately it is not in Ubuntu.20:47
OerHeksto create an standard xorg.conf http://askubuntu.com/questions/4662/where-is-the-x-org-config-file-how-do-i-configure-x-there and the wiki https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution20:47

brmmm3Hi. I've got a general question on uid and gid generation. On Linux uids are generated by finding the next free uid when a user is created. Same with gid. So on Ubuntu the first user gets uid 1000 and gid 1000. The second user gets uid and gid 1001. So now if we look at a very common situation where a family has several computers. Each member has it's own computer so it's own installation. So for example John's computer has the first user22:20
brmmm3john. Mary's computer the  first user mary. Each have the same uid 1000. Now John buys an external drive and formats it with ext4. On this drive he puts some private files. Then Mary connects this drive on her computer and she sees all files with mary's user name and group and she can read all the files. Isn't this a major design bug or am I completely wrong?22:20

craigbass76We're homeschooling this year, and I wanted to be able to set up a sheet with some math problems for the kids to do. Can't seem to figure out how to get 5, new line, +5, new line, horizontal equals sign. Anyone familiar with LibreOffice Math, or some other program that will let me make worksheets?22:36
pamkll: it only stops when I'm transfering files.22:36
ubuntu405hi, any ubuntu based pbx distros?22:37
smurfendrek123Hey guys does anyone know of an alternative where i can easily plot functions by typing something similar to plot(y=x) and integrating functions and stuff22:38
ubuntu405with a nice gui22:38
pamk1l: is there anyway to debug the usb connection while the phone is connected?22:38
k1lpam: look at dmesg22:38
trismsmurfendrek123: maxima is pretty good22:38
pamjust type dmesg?22:38
k1lpam: yes22:39
smurfendrek123trism, but you can't plot with maxima right?22:39
trismsmurfendrek123: yes you can in integrates gnuplot22:39
smurfendrek123oh cool22:39
trismsmurfendrek123: if you get wxmaxima you can see it right in the window22:39
smurfendrek123what's wxmaxima?22:40
trismsmurfendrek123: it is a gui for maxima22:41
trism!info wxmaxima22:41
ubottuwxmaxima (source: wxmaxima): GUI for the computer algebra system Maxima. In component universe, is optional. Version 15.08.2-1 (xenial), package size 3390 kB, installed size 6883 kB22:41
smurfendrek123does it offer advantages, because i don't mind typing in plot and int22:41
smurfendrek123how do i exit maxima lol22:41
trismsmurfendrek123: ctrl+d22:42
smurfendrek123does the gui just offer buttons that pretype some of the syntax for you?22:43
pamk1l: here is the dmesg output if you can take a quick look at it http://pastebin.com/0DWg7j5w22:44
pamk1l: if you search for samsung it'll take you to the part22:44
trismsmurfendrek123: yes, there are menus and dialogs and such to simplify plotting and other things22:45
k1lpam: this looks like disconnect issue. does the phone work on other OS/pcs?22:45
pamI haven't checked22:46
trismsmurfendrek123: but I'm pretty sure it all converts to maxima syntax so I don't think it really does anything maxima doesn't do22:46
smurfendrek123cool thanks trism22:46
k1lpam: check another usb port. and try to put out other usb devices at the same time.22:46
smurfendrek123any idea on how i get multiple figures in the same graph?22:47
trismsmurfendrek123: you can use a list, say, plot2d([sin(x), cos(x)], [x, -%pi, %pi]);, but I don't really think general maxima support is appropriate to the channel22:47
jjasinskiHi all, I'm trying to install ubuntu 16.04 from the live cd. I went through the entire install process, but when I reboot, Grub doesn't seem boot.22:48
smurfendrek123okay that's it for those questions, huge thanks trism22:48
jjasinskiI've tried running the disk repair tool22:48

jjasinskibut I admit, the UEFI boot process is new to me22:49
catbeardhey guys, chrome with foxyproxy isn't respecting my hosts file, running ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS22:49
jjasinskiI'm not trying to dual boot22:49
catbeardchrome 5222:49
jjasinskiI have a second partition of ext4 data that I'm trying not to erase22:49
jjasinskiso I don't want to just do the full install22:49
pamk1l: looks like its happening on the other usb port as well22:49
catbeardresolv.conf is set to, host.conf is set to order hosts,bind22:50
timypjjasinski what Os's are you trying to dual boot?22:50
gldvvtrjjasinski, im having the same problem, errors with UEFI..22:50
catbeardping gets the right ip in the hosts file, but chrome doesn't pull the same ip, dns prefetching is disabled (managed by ublock)22:50
tH3G3nTlhi there22:50
jjasinskitimyp, not trying to dual boot.22:50
jjasinskibut have a second parition that I don't want to erase22:50
timypmaybe try to enable legacy boot in UEFI22:50
catbeardtrying to pull it up in incognito mode where ublock is disabled, can only access the ip via foxyproxy though22:50
pamk1l: thanks for everything so far.  going to look at this later.22:50
catbeardchrome://dns says prefetching and tcp-preconnect is disabled22:51
jjasinskitimyp, is that a BIOS setting?22:51
timypmaybe you will see something about secure boot, try to disable it and see if the OS boots22:51
k1lcatbeard: sounds more like you need to ask the chrome and/or foxyproxy guys to get an answer on theat22:51
gldvvtrjjasinski, checkout this ubuntu help page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI22:51
jjasinskigldvvtr, thainks looking at that link now22:52
jjasinskitimyp, I have an HP Envy22:52
jjasinskiIt's a bios that's a bit different from what I've seen, but I'll look for that option22:52
jjasinskiThere is a boot order section that has a section for legacy device22:53
jjasinski(were I can rearrange the boot order of the devices, but I can't move the legacy stuff above the UEFI stuff)22:53
timypmaybe http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03653226, so many implementation of UEFI22:54
timypthere was nothing wrong with good old bios don't know why they had to f* it up22:55
jjasinskiThank you timyp, I'll take a look at that22:55
ohlolzis there a date when legacy boot will be a thing of the past?22:55
timypnow these UEFI boards can access the internet directly it's a recipe for disaster.22:56
timypthats up to the hardware vendors I suppose22:56
timypUbuntu is suppose to have all the required signing keys for UEFI to boot correctly.22:56
jjasinskiGood to know.22:57
ohlolzmy update from 14.04 to 16.04 officially released on July 28th was a total disaster; after installing couldn't boot and etc. had to reinstall 16.06 from zero. just letting you guys know :D23:01
timypyea http://askubuntu.com/questions/493409/is-disabing-secure-boot-needed-for-ubuntu-14-04-dual-boot-with-windows-8-uefi23:01
ohlolzdisabling secure boot also helps with wifi problems, from what i've read.23:02
timypI have gone out of my way to by hardware with traditional bios to avoid having to deal with secure boot.23:02
ohlolzusing legacy because destiny23:02
barnexhey, I'm having an issue at work. Seems something went wrong and now kernel has no modules during boot.23:09
barnexI recognize this by the fact that the USB keyboard isn't working after grub23:09
barnexnet isn't working23:09
rangergordHi. If I run   sudo echo "#" > /etc/snmp/snmp.conf   , I get permission denied. But if I do "sudo nano /etc/snmp/snmp.conf", I can edit it. How is that possible? What am I missing about permissions23:09
barnexand when I lsmod after booting, the keyboard module isn't loaded.23:09
k1lbarnex: what did you do before?23:09
barnexk1l: I think I was removing old kernels with some bash loop from serverfault23:10
barnexbecause the /boot was getting full23:10
k1lbarnex: what ubuntu is that exactly?23:10
k1lis there an older kernel to boot in grub?23:10
ProfessorKaos64Does anyone here play quake on Linux? namely using FTE?23:11
barnexwell, it's 1 am here and the net module isn't working as well, so hard to tell for sure. But there might be some left.23:11
k1lbarnex: make sure "linux-generic" is installed.it will pull in the latest kernel and headers (which is needed to build modules with dkms)23:11
CHVNXProfessorKaos64: Ask your question. Please do not preface it with audition questions.23:11
barnexok, so just installing linux-generic and maybe dpkg-reconfigure should fix this?23:11
barnexassuming the /boot partition is correctly mounted?23:11
k1lbarnex: no need for dpkg-reconfigure. and yes, /boot needs to be mounted if its a seperate partition23:12
barnexcool, thanks a lot.23:12
ProfessorKaos64If anyone uses FTE for quake, have you had trouble saving your video settings or loading them on next start?23:12
barnexNow the only issue I have is getting lan drivers so I can install, but I guess that's googlable with some lspci.23:13
CHVNXProfessorKaos64: https://www.reddit.com/r/quake/comments/4vmjpz/cant_load_saved_video_settings_in_fte_any_help/23:13
CHVNXThis issue?23:14
ProfessorKaos64Yes... seems as if I am the only one in the world :)23:14
=== abelur is now known as abelur|brb
CHVNXHonestly, the only thing I can think of, which probably isn't correct, is that you moved the game to /usr/share... suggesting potential permissions issues?23:15
ProfessorKaos64the binary is /usr/games the data is /usr/share/quake23:15
ProfessorKaos64the config file is read from $HOME/.fte/id1/fte.cfg23:15
CHVNXIs SteamOS an Ubuntu distro? I thought it was based on Debian.23:18
k1lit is debian23:18
ProfessorKaos64It's Debian Jessie , with some tweaks, such as a standalone compositor23:19
ProfessorKaos64I do have another quake 2 client I packaged, but it would be nice ot use FTE. If I have to, maybe for now, I'll keep my hack in the config file23:20
ProfessorKaos64if you change the settings, they will saved, then put the hacky "vid_restart "1"" in config file23:20
AscavasaionOops, wrong room.23:25
Gallomimiai seem to have choked on a kernel update come out today. any others seen that?23:41
Gallomimiaoh. it's fixed now... or is it?23:42
fxdfoh maybe, did a new install of gnome today and it crashed out after i updated lol23:44
Guest28793Hi i have a problem i was wondering if anyone could help me with. I'm trying to create a LiveDVD using Geniso image and squashfs. I was able to get almost to the very end of the process but then it complains that the iso file size is over 4.1 GB in size and it stops there. I ran the command mksquashfs --help and it showed that XZ was NOT my deafult compression method which i believe is what caused my ISO file to be larger than 4.1 GB. How do i set my23:44
Guest28793compression to be XZ by default on Ubuntu? Any help would be great23:44
Gallomimiai installed new kernel packages. it complained that it didn't complete properly. i ran autoremove... seems to have fixed the problems. very concerning23:45
fckfreen1anyone have a thinkpad x240 with a 6 Cell battery?23:52

netham45Hi, I have two GPUs in my desktop, a GTX970 and an Intel card. I would like to load a VM and pass the Intel card through to it. I can do this using a paravirtualized guest in Xen but nvidia's drivers don't cooperate with Xen at all. Is there another option for passing a GPU through that'll let me keep my nvidia card working on the host?23:58
netham45I don't have VT-d either, I was using Xen's option for PCI passthrough on a non-VT-d CPU.23:58
