liquidswordsmanguys, I'm kind of a linux idiot. I have a question, know the solution, but not how to do it. I'm having problems with the angular cli, the error message is ng is not a command. the cli is installed globally, and it seems to be generally solvable by creating a symlink, but I don't know where to find globally installed node modules and how to make a symlink00:54

milestone234rfleming thanks for the info..the previous question was concerning the difference in the updates between ubuntu and kubuntu if there is any?01:46
rflemingmilestone234, the difference is the same as the difference between an apple and a pineapple01:47
rflemingat the core they are the same (a fruit) but they're completely different01:47
milestone234rfleming so are the updates scheduled different01:47
milestone234or are they really different in that area01:48
bazhangrfleming, the updates are the same, apart from some very kde spcific ones01:48
milestone234i like that link about the them01:48
milestone234so i can simply run those commands to get that theme on ubuntu?01:48
bazhangmilestone234, kde is not a theme01:48
rflemingkubuntu is based off of the KDE desktop environment, while Ubuntu uses Unity and Gnome01:48
rflemingmilestone234, see: http://askubuntu.com/a/69901:49
milestone234i hear you bazhang but we were talking about two things at once :P one was about xubuntu and the question i asked this time was about this http://www.noobslab.com/2015/09/do-you-like-windows-10-look-but-love.html01:49
milestone234i was asking can i simply run those commands to get that done01:50
rflemingmilestone234, yes01:50
rflemingmilestone234, word of caution01:50
milestone234is that is still ubuntu with a windows theme right?01:50
rflemingdon't go mixing DE's01:50
bazhangmilestone234, noobslab is something not from here, thats a one hundred percent on your own deal01:50
rflemingif you're using Ubuntu, stick with it01:50
milestone234what is DE im new to linux :P01:50
rflemingmilestone234, DE is Desktop Environment01:51
rflemingmilestone234, OK.  I'm going to give you a quick lesson here01:51
YankDownUnder"Deranged Environment" :)01:51
milestone234bazhang so do you recommend kubuntu versus that theme01:51
bazhang!rute | milestone234 have a read first01:51
ubottumilestone234 have a read first: 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.pdf01:51
rflemingin Windows, or on Apple, you have only one DE and one WM... in Linux you've got lots :)01:51
rflemingthere have been as many flame wars over DE's and WM's as there have distros01:52
bazhangmilestone234, I recommend nothing, except you doing a lot of reading first on what the very basics are, such as 'what is a DE' , see the links above01:52
* rfleming agrees with bazhang 01:52
milestone234bazhang rfleming this isn't meant to be mean but is this a way of making something simple complicate like linux somtimes does :P01:53

milestone234rfleming i guess what im asking is the real simple explanation and not the looooooooong explanation :P01:54
bazhangthats three sets of very important links to get reading milestone23401:54
rflemingLinux is about choice... and embracing differences of opinion.  With Windows and Apple, you don't have that choice at all.  You get what you get... too bad if you don't like it *cough* Windows Vista *cough*01:54

danny_i3 or i3 gaps?02:20
HypothermicDark_Blue_Shark - it's likely there was an application suit that was tying the FN key to the functions (like brighten and dim the screen).  What type of Laptop? You might find a work around or a software package from the manufacturer (which is rare) that would restore the functionality.02:22

BackwardsSleep Mode reduces the voltage of your computer usage of the battery if you are using a laptop but if you are using a DeskTop that is another story.06:30
BackwardsThe point is that no matter what you set your computer to the battery voltage is always running.06:31

BackwardsSleep Mode is just telling the OS that your keyboard and mouse and monitory is sleeping. That is it.06:32

BackwardsSleep Mode turns off the voltage to your extranious voltages that are not necessary.06:32

Xinkind of a moot discussion06:33
BackwardsIf the computer is sleeping, there is no need for the monitor to be showing.06:33
Xinthe core of the concept is; less overhead = less battery use06:33
BackwardsXin true.06:34
BackwardsIf the computer is sleeping then, there is no need for the keyboard which takes up voltage as well as the mouse or the keyboard mouse.06:35

pandaadbHi - I have asked yesterday about my graphics issue. I ended up doing a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 and installing nvidia driver 36710:29
pandaadbPrime seems to be working, however I believe my intel skylane graphics are not recognised10:29
pandaadband I believe this is causing syncing issues and tearing10:30
killallHello, i have a software raid with 4 disks (runs ok on /raid) but when i change /raid to /home and reboot all the files are there with 0 bytes why?10:30
pandaadbI don't know and can't find info on how to install the correct intel drivers.10:30
pandaadbMy 3D part tells me the driver in use is nvidia, however the intel card does not show any driver in use10:30
pandaadbis this expected? Is there a way for me to reinstall the intel drivers so they are in use with the VGA card10:31
killallpandaadb, maybe one of those chard with 2 graphics?10:31
pandaadbthis is the setup: http://pastebin.com/CD6VDgzL10:31
pandaadbkillall, yes, it is 2 cards, the integrated intel graphics and an NVIDIA card10:32
=== taufik is now known as Taufik
killallyou want to use the nvidia only?10:32
pandaadbThe reason i am asking is because the one thread that has the same setup and is solved shows the driver in use to be i91510:34
pandaadbkillall, I am not 100% sure what the correct setup is. Ideally I would like for them to play together nicely and get rid of the tearing10:34
pandaadbWhen switching to power save mode, the tearing goes away. But it seems like the wrong approach to just not use nvidia at all10:35
raketensiloI am on a 15 version and this does not work: sudo apt-get install fpdns10:36
bazhang!eolupgrades | raketensilo10:36

bazhangthose are all end of support raketensilo upgrade to a supported version10:36
pandaadbSo i guess the question is, can it cause tearing because the NVIDIA driver works fine, but the intel part which it syncs to is configured wrong?10:39
akikpandaadb: i have tearing also on a laptop with intel/nvidia and can't get rid of it. it's mostly visible on youtube videos, not on any other videos10:40
pandaadbakik, i also have the tearing when scrolling websites, and when working on the terminal. Typing sometimes lags and doesn't get displayed properly10:40
akikpandaadb: i actually went from 16.04 back to 14.04. in that i have nvidia-352 and the tearing is less visible10:42
pandaadbhm, so it might be a 16.04 issue then10:42
pandaadbhave you tried using power safe mode to see if that fixes the issue with 16.04?10:43
akikpandaadb: i don't know. there's lots of discussion also on the nvidia board10:43
pandaadbI saw that thread: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/775691/linux/vsync-issue-nvidia-prime-ux32vd-with-gt620-m-/710:44
pandaadbi was wondering if that has something to do with it10:44
akikpandaadb: there was also some discussion whether nvidia disabled some feature in the chip and that caused the tearing problem10:47
pandaadbakik hm okay. I found this thread where they solved the issue by upgrading the kernel.10:48
pandaadbBut I was advised against upgrading the kernel10:48
sh0tHi guys my goal is to access my samsung galaxy s5 with ubuntu and copy all the files i want in my laptop. What's the smoothest way? I tried using mtpfs but i get an error like:"LIBMTP ERROR: couldnt parse extension samsung.com/devicestatus:0"10:49
akikpandaadb: you can install mainline kernels for testing. just save the default kernel10:49
pandaadbakik would you mind pasting your output for: lspci -knn | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D'10:50
akikpandaadb: that laptop is at home. i have probably that info though online10:50
pandaadbI just wonder if your intel card uses a specific driver or not10:51
pandaadbI feel like I am chasing red herrings around the world :)10:51
akikIntel HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2) and GeForce 920M/PCIe/SSE210:51
pandaadbAnd does it say if a driver is in use for both?10:52
akiki'm using the nvidia one10:53
akiki've set it in xorg.conf10:53
pandaadbThat;s the one I am using as well. But doesn't the nvidia still have to pass it through the intel one?10:54
akikpandaadb: i've set the intel one as "Inactive" in the conf10:54

killallsheiru, did you purge it?11:27
AndrzejYankDownUnder: thank you but this is not the answer that I was looking for. I need to make bootable USB that will work on OSX but to do that USB I can use only Ubuntu or other linux distro (I may have access to Windows 10 machine if this will be necessary), I don't have working OSX installation11:28

chilverscright, but all I need to do is clear the screen and the scrollback12:05
bekkschilversc: and that is what reset does. And it does that in a defined way, as described in th link given.12:05
chilverscreally should just be a standard option in gnome terminal, when clearing, clear the scrollback12:06

setuidIs there a way for Ubuntu to remember my monitor arrangement? Every time I turn on my external monitor, I get a popup from xfce4 asking me to configure my monitors and arrangement. it's annoying.12:58
setuidI'd rather it just always knew where my monitors are, and their placement. 1 laptop, 1 external monitor.12:58
bekkssetuid: so turn on the external monitor first, then your laptop.12:59
popeythat's an xfce specific issue, my unity based desktop remembers where monitors are12:59
popeywhich I think is stored in .config/monitors.xml12:59
setuidbekks, not possible12:59
popeymaybe the same place in xfce?12:59
setuidpopey, How does one configure monitors.xml?12:59
setuidother than "by hand"13:00
popeygenerally I just use the control panel thing13:00
popeyand it saves to that file13:00
popeyi dont know if xfce uses that file too13:00
setuidRight, so I configure the monitors using Settings -> Display, and they're correct. I turn off the external monitor, turn it back on, and have to do it all over again.13:00
setuidhappens with nouveau driver and with the nvidia driver13:00
popeythat's annoying13:00
setuidmonitors.xml shows me as having what looks like 17 monitors13:01
setuideDP1, DP3, DP4, HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3, VIRTUAL1, then duplicated a second time13:01
setuid14 separate blocks of config13:02
popeyin the past I have had to nuke that file and start again13:02
popeybecause the system got "confused" by it13:02
popeyperhaps back it up, and remove it13:02
setuidI just removed it, logged out, back in, checked Settings->Display, everything looked good, turned off external, back on, popup showed up, configured the monitors the way they're arranged, and checked ~/.config/. no monitors.xml file there.13:04
setuidso what process/tool creates that file?13:04
popeysetuid: ever used any other desktop than xfce on that machine?13:07
popeysetuid: maybe xfce doesn't use that file13:07
OerHeks~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/displays.xml perhaps ?13:07
setuidpopey, no other wm runs on this machine, I've tried them all. Once they try to start, they recycle back to lightdm.13:08
setuidxfce4 is the only one that works, so I use that13:08
popeysetuid: okay, so having used one at some point, that may be why you had a monitors.xml13:08
setuidOerHeks, that file has a datetime stamp of moments ago, so it's definitely being updated. How do I make that file the canonical source for monitor config?13:09
setuidchattr +i the file?13:09
* setuid tries that13:10

jonathoni suggest you file an RMA and get it repaired under warranty14:41
Gourlayjonathon, could you please read this, same computer model as I have: http://community.acer.com/t5/V-and-VN-Series-Laptops/I-have-an-Aspire-V17-Nitro-VN7-791G-72MY-Very-slow-startup/td-p/418739.14:42
jonathonok, so they flashed the bios14:43
jonathonyou need to flash the bios14:43
jonathonwhich means you need to be running windows14:43
Gourlayjonathon, I will probably get into windows tomorrow, but anyway I would like this computer returned. Warranty is one year on Aspire, I think.14:44
freakyyjonathon ok thanks sounds good :)14:44
rdeggesheyo. quick question14:45
rdeggesWhat's the best IM client now-a-days? Is it still pidgin? Or is empathy decent?14:46
jonathonGourlay, if you bought it in the EU you get two years warranty14:46
rdeggesBeen a while.14:46
jonathonrdegges, the only way to know which is best for you is to try them :)14:46
rdeggesfair enough14:46
mcphailfreakyy: if you feel adventurous, you could try using bcache14:46
Gourlayjonathon, OK, Do I have to send the damn thing to Singapore or something? Or is it anywhere I can return it in Sweden, Stockholm?14:49
Matt__i am looking at launchpad (and canonical) but do not see how to submit  a bug report14:49
GourlayjonathaN, this computer has a touchpad not working properly (have to click really hard), a screen with a line in the middle when starting (disappears after a while, but really sensitive if it gets pressure on middle) and now a not booting. I can't believe Acer pulled this off with my Aspire VN7 791G model.14:51

kikeroHello! MySQL 5.7 breaks my website. What is the preferred way of downgrading to MySQL 5.6 in Ubuntu 16 LTS?15:18
Arkuskikero: purge mysql then sudo apt-get install mysqld5.615:19
ThisIsZenifiedthe first thing you should do is: FIX YOUR WEBSITE15:19
OerHekskikero, not, just follow the releasenotes howto do it right ? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes#MySQL_5.715:19
OerHeksArkus, wrong approach, 5.6 is not in the xenial repo15:20
Arkuskikero: yeah ThisIsZenified  has a valid point why dosent your website work with mysql 5.7 in the first place15:20
kikeroThisIsZenified: I can't change .5 million lines of code over the night. :-)15:20
ArkusOerHeks: fair play , i hold my hand up15:20
ThisIsZenified5 millions of code that is bloated15:20
ThisIsZenifiedYou did everything wrong15:20
ThisIsZenifiedyou did it15:20
OerHekskikero, does it throw an error about 'unknown option key_buffer' ?15:22
kikeroThisIsZenified, I haven't asked for career advice, haha. I want to downgrade to MySQL 5.6. Downgrading to MySQL 5.6 is done just the same, regardless of what the reasons behind this option are. :-)15:22
OerHekskikero, downgrading means back to 14.0415:22
kikeroOerHeks, first error that I get is related to ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY, but then there are a couple more.15:23
ThisIsZenifiedyou can do it, but making your code not bloated is the most big thing15:23
kikerofuck off, ThisIsZenified15:23
kikeroNow, the dump is quite big and my guess is that not all of it gets executed, due to errors.15:24
\9there seems to be a few PPAs around for MySQL 5.615:24
\9of course are they any usable is entirely another matter15:24
OerHeksyou better fix your code than downgrade.15:25
kikeroSo, what I have on the production server is an approximation of what I have locally and the other way round is also true. I don't really know very well what the differences between the two MySQL versions are, but I can say that the website works on one version but doesn't on the other one.15:25

YankDownUnderMight be a good idea to blow out the partition(s) on the USB, re-create a parition (MBR) and format it (not doing a QuickFormat) for FAT32 and try again... leo-ren?21:07

BackwardsAnytime I install Linux or Ubuntu, I always disk wipe the hard drive. That is key to a better install. Don't let ubuntu format the disk without Disk Cleaning.21:15
OerHeksthe installer gives an option to completely wipe the disk and writing fresh mbr21:16
BackwardsThat is a different story OerHeks.21:16
BackwardsI don't trust the installer.21:16
androOneGood day21:17
BackwardsI trust cleaning the hard drive and wiping it clean and do a DOD clean and erase any vestige of data on the drive. Start from the beginning. That works.21:17
YankDownUnderBackwards: From a point of having to deal with lots of "strange drives" in my biz, by "best practice", every drive I get my grubby hands on gets re-partitioned, wiped (doing a lovely byte-by-byte 0 injection), partitioned "yet again", formatted, then when happiness is achieved, prep'd and made ready for next install...great way of determining whether the drive is worthy for use - or not...21:18
BackwardsThe OS will always look for vestiges of data on the hard drive and bog down the drive and OS.21:18
BackwardsYankDownUnder good point and well taken.21:19
OerHeksa pro would test the drive 24 hrs before use :-D21:20
BackwardsI don't need my customers to bother me all day long to tell me there are problems. Do the job right the first time.21:20
BackwardsOerHeks that is a good point. Testing the Hard Drive is very important for its integrity.21:21

JuJuBeeYankDownUnder: ^^21:23
OerHeksKodiakFi, do you have a cve ?21:24
YankDownUnderJuJuBee: It's a great idea to re-partition and re-format the USB before letting the "USB Creator" do it for you...USB's do not last forever, and it's easy enough to corrupt the file system.21:24

mustmodifyOne issue I had last time was that I couldn't do a full memory test. I can't remember why but it seemed like I chose some option and that put me in a place where I couldn't test all the memory. Or it might have been that I had hardware that was too new and wasn't supported?21:27

* dax looks up22:27
GallomimiaBillTheKid: what screen?? is there any error message? best way to...22:27
tomreynBillTheKid: use the ubuntu installe rlive system to repair it. repairing is one of the options available on the boot screen of it.22:27

Nitrigaurtomreyn, so I've noticed, thanks for the heads-up anyway :-)22:28
cupofbrewI don't want to install all of the restricted extras, just flash for my browser22:29
Ben64cupofbrew: sudo apt install flashplugin-installer22:29
BillTheKidthanks for the responses. I am through live cd, I repaired it running fsck. I also tried to change superblock22:29

BillTheKidnothing worked :(22:29
Gallomimiayou might update-grub22:30
BillTheKidwhen I do fdisk -l I see: http://pastebin.com/DgE1CWx222:30
BillTheKidi tried to repair /dev/sda122:30
BillTheKidam I doing it on the correct driver?22:31
Gallomimiathat's the /boot22:31
Gallomimiathe other partitions are just your LVM system22:31
Gallomimiaseems to me it won't properly mount it.22:31
NitrigaurGallomimia, tomreyn, it seems that btrfs even requires a partition to be mounted before being able to resize it.  I'm going to dig deeper to see how to do this safely with my setup using software RAID1 and lvm on top of that ...RAID122:32
Nitrigaur^ ignore the last "RAID1" here22:32
GallomimiaBillTheKid: :i've had that problem a few times. your liveUSB can mount it and you can peek inside. check for /etc/fstab22:33
BillTheKidGallomimia: how can I mount it?22:33
GallomimiaBillTheKid: you might also have to run mk-initramfs from inside a chroot22:33
Gallomimiaif you like GUI, the Disks program is best22:33
Gallomimiaif you have some command-line-fu best to take a ls of /dev/mapper/22:34
BillTheKidGallomimia: I tried that, when I go to my disk, the sda1 is mounted, but sda2 and sda5 don't give the option22:34
Gallomimiasda2 is just a container for sda522:34
Gallomimiaand sda5 is the container for LVM22:35
Gallomimiayou need to run LVM to see its contents22:35
Gallomimiacan't just mount it directly22:35
tomreynNitrigaur: you do not mount a partition - you mount file systems. i did not understand what you mean to say there.22:36
Nitrigaurtomreyn, I meant the file system inside the paritition. Somehow my root FS doesn't show up with the command: sudo btrfs filesystem show22:38
BillTheKidGallomimia: again thanks a lot for helping me. I have no idea how to do this. I tried this: http://www.tuxradar.com/answers/29622:38
GallomimiaBillTheKid: similar concept going on with Nitrigaur. good to follow along22:38
BillTheKidI get mount:  /dev/ubuntu-vg is not a block device22:38
GallomimiaBillTheKid: oh. you're trying to mount the volume group, and not the logical volume22:39
Gallomimiapress up arrow to repeat, then press / and then tab22:39
Gallomimiatab twice maybe22:39
Gallomimiathat's what vg stands for inthat name22:39
tomreynNitrigaur: basically the approach should be to boot the system from a live distro (you could use gparted-live for this purpose if you prefer a graphical interface, or just use the ubuntu installer / live iso). then enable all the lower block device layers needed (if any) to gain access to the btrfs one. then find out which command to use to resizea btrfs file system, and, not mounting (or previously unmounting) it, run those commands.22:40
BillTheKidthis is what I typed: sudo mount /dev/volumegroup/ubuntu-vg mnt22:40
userSo, I have a bad question to ask... I'm trying to install Windows on another machine using Ubuntu22:40
userI already have the correct ISO's22:40
userbut everything I've tried does not boot on the other machine22:41
userand I have no idea how to move forward22:41
=== YaM0M is now known as Chunkyz
jerichowasahoaxuser: Is it Windows or Ubuntu that you want to boot to right now22:41
userjerichowasahoax, I'm trying to boot Windows22:41
usermy ubuntu box is working fine22:41
jerichowasahoaxuser: /join ##windows22:41
Nitrigaurtomreyn, I have tried this, but this article states that you have to mount the FS in order to resize it (contrary to what you would expect): http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/175473/resize-a-btrfs-partition-inside-a-logical-lvm-volume22:42
BillTheKidGallomimia: correction this is what I did this is what I typed: sudo mount /dev/ubuntu-vg mnt22:42
Nitrigaurtomreyn, in fact I just rebooted my box after having booted from a live-DVD in order to resize first the volume group and than the volume itself.22:43
GallomimiaBillTheKid: that would try to mount the volgroup at /mnt22:44
Gallomimiayou should probably use / in front of the mnt. and add the LV after the other22:44
Gallomimiahow much of this command do you understand BillTheKid ?22:44
Nitrigaurtomreyn, after  issueing a mount, I get amongst other lines, the following line: /dev/mapper/SSD_Statisch-Root on / type btrfs (rw,subvol=@)22:44
BillTheKidGallomimia: I have no idea how LVM works22:44
BillTheKidI ended up using it because I think it was recommended on the installation22:45
tomreynNitrigaur:  i concur that apparently the btrfs has to be mounted to be resizable.22:45
Gallomimiathe basics are simple. it manages virtual partitions which you can move around, take backups of, resize more easily22:45
Nitrigaursomehow, this volume does not show on sudo btrfs filesystem show. that's what puzzles me now.22:45
BillTheKidok how do I mount it?22:45
GallomimiaBillTheKid: sudo mount /dev/ubuntu-vg/(tab) /mnt22:46
Gallomimiapress tab where it says tab. no ()22:46
Nitrigaurtomreyn, in fact it is *the only* btrfs volume that isn't shown using that command...22:46
Gallomimiayou have to find the right volume inside that directory22:46
BillTheKidmount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root missing codepage or helper program, or other error22:48
Gallomimiahuh. that's very interesting22:48
tomreynNitrigaur: and 'mount' lists / as being btrfs, too?22:48
BillTheKidGallomimia: I don't like it that you find it interesting :p22:48
GallomimiaBillTheKid: sounds like you need to run an fs-check22:48
Gallomimiano. no it's not good that it's interesting22:49
BillTheKidwith fix right?22:49
Gallomimiainteresting means no normal22:49
Gallomimiai think fsck /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu--vg-root should give you some result22:49
Nitrigaurtomreyn, yes, this is the literal line of mount that indicates that / is on a btrfs volume:  /dev/mapper/SSD_Statisch-Root on / type btrfs (rw,subvol=@)22:49
Gallomimiabut we should ask others in the channel22:49
BillTheKidcause I did this earlier, but when I rebooted nothing.22:49
Nitrigaurtomreyn, with the literal line of mount I mean the first line of the *output* of the command mount.22:50
BillTheKidGallomimia: this is what I tried: http://bernaerts.dyndns.org/linux/74-ubuntu/232-ubuntu-boot-failure-initramfs22:50
tomreynNitrigaur: i guess i'm really lacking experience with btrfs and you should better work with someone who is into it22:50
tomreynyes, i got that much ;)22:51
GallomimiaBillTheKid: that only fsck's the /boot part. its only 250 megs22:51
jdubu420Hello :) When I start up Ununtu a "System Problem Detected, would you like to report this error" window opens repeatedly. How can I determine the source of the error / fix the error?22:51
ADY_Hi. I tryed to update my system from 14 to 16.04. Now it appears a sign that says "the system us running in low-graphics mode" and i can only access to the console22:52
Nitrigaurtomreyn, still I appreciate you trying to help me. I 'll try to find help with someone else. I hope (s)he is available on this channel as that would make things a bit more simple22:52
BillTheKidGallomimia: are there any resources, anything that I can google to start fixing it? could it be faulty disk?22:52
Gallomimiano, i think it's just a lost file or something22:53
BillTheKidit's just that I have no clue where to start now22:53
orlockBillTheKid: you are the guy that had the fried drive?22:53
Gallomimiawhat did you do before this started happening?22:53
GallomimiaBillTheKid: the drive shouldn't be fried. you can check one part of it.22:53
tomreynNitrigaur: quite likely. maybe try some other time if you have no luck right now. also, gparted-live is still an option if you don't mind loosing the opportunity to learn how to do it on CLI.22:53
BillTheKidorlock: first time here22:53
GallomimiaBillTheKid: you might search for "fsck lvm"22:54
BillTheKidI believe I updated the system yesterday22:54
Gallomimiaah yes.22:54
Gallomimiathat happens, and the system forgets to install the mounting for your LVM22:54
BillTheKidthe pc remained opened, it crashed today at one point. I forced rebooted after waiting half an hour22:54
BillTheKidI so "unmount" failed messages before the reboot22:54
BillTheKidafter reboot, here I stand...22:54
Nitrigaurtomreyn, I'm not afraid of the CLI, but I guess I am confused about the many logical layers underlying my current installation and the relation to LVM, btrfs and RAID22:54
Bashing-omADY_: What does lshw say about a driver for the graphics ? ' sudo lshw -C display ' .. look in the configuration line .22:55
GallomimiaBillTheKid: i wonder what the filesystem type is inside your LVM. do you know?22:55
BillTheKidext4 I think22:56
orlockGallomimia: I got BillTheKid and mustmodify confused - mustmodify is looking at similar LVM issues, and had a literally fried drive - http://ft.trillian.im/85353d38f4d2f94dfd75830e8d48517cc62ddc94/6JFolEmqp9EDgG9uArygIxoTS1LRi.jpg22:56
Gallomimiawhy are you posting links from trillian's site/22:56
ADY_bashing-om, is the the VGA?. there it says: Inter corporation 2ndgeneration core processor family integratedgraphiccs controller (rev 09)22:56
Gallomimiawow. yep. that's a fried HD.22:56
tomreynNitrigaur: yes those layers can always be quite confusing. making a quick drawing often does help.22:57
amiritehow do i upgrade an existing ubuntu server from 14 to 1622:57
GallomimiaBillTheKid: the instructions you followed last wrongly assumed you had no partitions in the filesystem22:57
Nitrigaurtomreyn, I'm somewhat surprised that there seems to be no available tool that shows those layers graphically.22:58
tomreynNitrigaur: also look at where the symlinks in /dev/mapper and /dev/VGNAME (replacing 'VGNAME' by the name of an LVM2 volume group) point to and the output of "dmsetup ls"22:58
GallomimiaBillTheKid: i did a google search and the command i gave up there starting with fsck is the right one22:58
ADY_Bashing-om, it says. Warning: output may be incomplet or inaccurate, you should run this program as super-user22:58
BillTheKidGallomimia: could you provide any reference? I can go through it and not bother you guys.22:58
Bashing-omADY_: That is not even close to the output I had expected . Only 4 that I am aware of .. and short and to the point in that configuration line .22:58

Nitrigaurtomreyn, thanks for the help and good night :-)23:00
Bashing-omADY_: Tun with sudo so that you are that super user ' sudo lshw -C display ' . give the system time to look at things and report .23:00
BillTheKidi know that and the only folders are: root and swap_123:00
V7ubottu: 90% of cliesnt supports that :D23:00
ubottuV7: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)23:00
GallomimiaBillTheKid: you want the root one. swap is just for spare memory23:01
BillTheKidsudo fsck /dev/ubuntu-vg/root23:01

mustmodifyHey. How do I tell fstab that I want to mount a subdirectory of a mount-point23:24
BillTheKidlol did u mean run it? :p23:24
GallomimiaBillTheKid: yeah. but i don't know what the filename is really23:24
mustmodifyIn this case, /dev/logopolis/root then /projects23:24
Gallomimiamaybe it's under /dev/mapper/ ?23:24
BillTheKid# /dev/ubuntu-vg/root -su: /dev/ubuntu-vg/root: Permission denied23:25
Gallomimiamustmodify: sounds like you want a --bind type mount. search for that?23:25
GallomimiaBillTheKid: ah yes. you should do it with sudo23:25
Gallomimiai like to use sudo !! but that can be dangerous23:25
BillTheKidwith sudo I get command not found23:26
dyc3anybody know how to make X listen on tcp?23:26
marcurlingEvening, what is the disk/partion tool under Xenial, please?23:27
Gallomimiamarcurling: it's called Disk23:27
BillTheKidGallomimia: I get "sudo: /dev/ubuntu-vg/root: command not found"23:30
GallomimiaBillTheKid: you forgot the word type23:30
=== Dream is now known as Guest92505
BillTheKidtype command is missing. let me install it23:31
=== Guest92505 is now known as tisky
BillTheKidGallomimia: what package is this?23:31
=== MKCoin is now known as MK
BillTheKidi don't have the type command, apt-get can't find it23:32
Gallomimiathe type command is missing!?23:32
BillTheKidubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo type /dev/ubuntu-vg/root23:33
Gallomimiaoh you're on a liveUSB right?23:33
BillTheKidsudo: type: command not found23:33
Gallomimiajust try the single word type in your terminal23:33
Gallomimiai just tried a similar command on mine and it says not found either. but type is there. and it works23:34
BillTheKidempty response23:34
BillTheKidno error23:34
Gallomimiathat means type is there23:34
Gallomimiayeah it's not going to tell us anything about it i think.23:34
BillTheKidwhich type is also empty23:34
Gallomimiawell you gave it no parameters23:34
Gallomimiaso it ran, did nothing, exited23:34
BillTheKid"which type"23:35
BillTheKidnothing returned23:35
Gallomimiai think it's builtin to the shell23:36
Gallomimiathat's why i was so incredulous when it said not found23:36
BillTheKidGallomimia: thanks so much for helping me mate...23:37
GallomimiaBillTheKid: try running the following with sudo: lvs23:39
Gallomimiaand lvscan23:39
Gallomimiathose might be the same command23:39
Gallomimianot the same but... almost23:39
BillTheKidGallomimia: earlier to load them I run:23:40
BillTheKidsudo vgscan23:40
BillTheKidsudo vgchange -a y23:40
Gallomimiaprobably not going to tell us anything new23:40
BillTheKidthen I was able to load them with your help23:40
Gallomimiawhat's vgchange? oh it activates them23:40
Gallomimiaload them? as in... mount them?23:41
Gallomimiaor merely populate /dev/ubuntu-vg23:41
BillTheKidi meant mount23:41
BillTheKidwell we did not mount them but we tried :p23:41
Gallomimiayeah. it tells us they're there23:42
Gallomimiawhy did i think it was a 40gig drive? it's 1tb23:43
BillTheKiddon't know... it's indeed 1tb23:43
BillTheKidI found this: http://www.sj-vs.net/forcing-a-hard-disk-to-reallocate-bad-sectors/23:43
BillTheKidany thoughts? should I try it or I will mess it up beyond recognition?23:43
Gallomimiai don't think you should go that far yet23:44
Gallomimiai honestly don't think it's damaged. just lost data due to the hard boot23:44
ADY_gallomimia, i cannot installl pastebinit. itsayssomeindexfile failed todownload23:44
flying_sausagesHello people, anyone knows how would I go about upgrading 10.04 to 16.04?23:44
mustmodifyHey I have some instructions in /etc/profile.d/chruby ...23:45
GallomimiaADY_: there's another way to pastebin from the terminal. it involves the command nc23:45
mustmodifybut if I run `bash` from bash they aren't run.23:45
mustmodifyin the new shell.23:45
Gallomimiasomeone here knows it23:45
ADY_ok, let me look for it23:45
flying_sausagesIt was the only CD I had lying around, no other choice...23:45
BillTheKidGallomimia: i really hope I did not losedata :(23:45
ADY_thank you23:45
Gallomimia!nc | ADY_23:45
GallomimiaBillTheKid: i don't think so. just the important data needed to mount the drive23:46
Gallomimiapartition map and stuff23:46
Gallomimiafs superblock23:46
GallomimiaBillTheKid: i'm reading the manual for LVM23:47
Gallomimiathere's a command that would be good to run: pvck23:47
BillTheKidman, really cant thank u enough...23:47
Gallomimiaprobably with sudo23:47
GallomimiaBillTheKid: thank me when we get files recovered?23:47
Gallomimiaalso, backups are a good idea.23:48
BillTheKidi thank u any way. you are definitely not obliged to do this.23:48
Gallomimiathere's a motto that goes around here: if you don't have it backed up, i guess it wasn't that important to you.23:48
Gallomimiano. but i've had a lot of people help me in here23:48
Gallomimiaits fitting i should pay it forward23:48
Gallomimiaif only i knew a bit more about this23:48
BillTheKiddo i need any parameters on the pvck?23:49
Gallomimiai think so.23:50
Gallomimiaprobably ubuntu-vg23:50
BillTheKidthey seem to be doing it on sba23:51
Gallomimiaah. try it on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-vg23:52
Gallomimiaor /dev/sda523:52
NitrigaurGallomimia, I managed to resize my root FS with the kind help from Knorrie@#btrfs . I was on the right track, but I missed a resize step that had to precede the btrfs filesystem resize command. Now my OS can be upgraded and I'll be on 16.04.1 in no time :-D23:52
Gallomimiamine is different than yours23:52
BillTheKidubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo pvck /dev/ubuntu-vg/root    Could not find LVM label on /dev/ubuntu-vg/root23:52
NitrigaurBoth steps could be performed on a live FS23:52
BillTheKid  Found label on /dev/sda5, sector 1, type=LVM2 001   Found text metadata area: offset=4096, size=104448023:52
GallomimiaNitrigaur: good show. it's different because of the btrfs. i've never worked with it23:53
BillTheKidi think the sdaX is correct. That's what I found on the web too23:53
GallomimiaBillTheKid: ah yes. that's your physical volume. mine is another mapping because i have some layers in it. crypto and raid23:53
NitrigaurGallomimia, I have compiled the relevant lines. Which I might add to the Ubuntu wiki later on, so that a future user will be able to use proper docs.23:54
sudormrfupgraded from 14.04 to 16.04, now i get an error when I ssh in to the machine: bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: read-only file system23:54
GallomimiaNitrigaur: that's a good idea. i might decide to do the same on making an initramfs23:54
sudormrfinitial google searches say that this is because stuff is full23:54
sudormrfall my results show plenty of free space and INodes (at least that is how I see it).  anyone around that can help?23:55
Gallomimiasudormrf: that won't stop you from doing certain things. but some it will23:55
NitrigaurGallomimia, I'm looking forward to your article on initramfs :-)23:55
Gallomimiasudormrf: unfortunately, you're going to have to sudormrf some stuff23:55
sudormrfGallomimia, that's fine, but what? the df -h and other results don't show me anything that is really sticking out23:55
Gallomimiasudormrf: is it actually full, or is there space?23:55
sudormrfGallomimia, there is a ton of space23:56
Gallomimiamaybe ask the mount command if it's mounted readonly23:56
sudormrfonly 11% in use23:56
Gallomimiayeah. that's odd. maybe permissions problem23:56
sudormrfthat is the error option in the fstab23:56
GallomimiaBillTheKid: i don't know what the success of that comand got us23:56
sudormrfI could switch it to continue :X23:56
OerHeksread-only  .. touch <somefile>23:56
Gallomimiayep. try touching a file and see what it says23:57
Gallomimiaor ls -la23:57
OerHekscould be a dirty shutdown, fsck23:57
sudormrftouch: cannot touch 'test': read only file system23:57
sudormrffsck gave an error23:57
Gallomimiayep. been remounted r/o23:57
sudormrfunable to resolve the uuid of the disk23:57
sudormrfGallomimia, that is the error option in the fstab23:58
Gallomimiathat's the default23:58
sudormrfI can change it, but want to understand why it's doing this23:58
BillTheKidGallomimia: it run way too quickly fore recovering anything... do you want me to reboot or do something else?23:58
Gallomimiayou don't want to change it23:58
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot23:58
sudormrfjedi mind trick?23:58
sudormrfOerHeks, fsck gave me an error23:58
sudormrfI will give that command a shot23:58
GallomimiaBillTheKid: i don't know what to do honestly. somehow we need to recover that filesystem. but its inside the LVM so... its complicated23:58
sudormrfOerHeks, won't the shutdown command force a shutdown, not a reboot?23:59
Gallomimiashutdown -r means reboot23:59
OerHeksshutdown plus -r is reboot23:59
sudormrfall be darned23:59
sudormrfawesome :D23:59
sudormrfone sec23:59
