dorkmafiahow come my cpu just reboots on start now00:46
Mathisenadams1991, to update just run " sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade "00:49
Mathisenyeah i know00:50
Mathisenapt-get is outdated00:50
dorkmafiawhen i go to install ubuntu the cpu just restarts00:51
dorkmafiaI even tried clearing the cmos no dice00:51
convergedorkmafia, do a memtest00:53
dorkmafiais there  a way to do that from grub?00:53
dorkmafiaor should i use my cpu's memtest00:53
Mathisendorkmafia, one question does the ubuntu installer start at all ? or does it reboot when you try to boot usb/dvd00:54
convergedorkmafia, yes00:55
adams1991Mathisen, sorry for the delay... its doing the upgrade now so i will let you know how that goes and if i can get gnome running00:59
Bashing-omadams1991: You are aware that to use the gnome desktop is to choose it @ the login screen's login box ?01:03
dorkmafiaMathisen: it reboots when ever I try to boot01:03
Mathisendorkmafia, you sure you made the usb/dvd correct then ?01:04
dorkmafiathe memtest gets about 40% done01:04
dorkmafiai used dd01:04
dorkmafiai can get into grub01:04
raubHow do you can the data format where each data line is a string (array) where the different fields have defined fixed positions?01:06
dorkmafiadef not a good sign if i can only get 40% of the way through a memtest01:06
dorkmafiaand it reboots01:06
Mathisenno not at all01:07
raubdorkmafia: tine to start taking memory out of machine?01:07
rud77how do I format an iso image to usb from the command line01:07
raubrud77: dd perhaps?01:07
rud77I don't know the command unfortunately01:07
raubas in dd if=file.iso of=/dev/usb/device01:08
Mathisenrud77, dd bs=4M if=NAME.iso of=/dev/sdX01:08
dorkmafiayah i guess so already took half out01:08
rud77Will that format the drive first01:08
rud77removing an old image?01:08
raubdorkmafia: I would start with one simm card and then add up01:08
raubrud77: yep. dd will just overwrite whatever is there with extreme prejudice01:08
rud77do I need to include the pathway to the iso or just the file name itself01:09
raubrud77: so, make absolutely sure you are writing to the /dev associated with the usb drive. Or, you might be reinstalling things01:09
rud77got it01:09
rud77can you change the name of your home directory01:11
rud77I mean user01:11
rud77user directory01:11
adams1991Mathisen, i was not.. i dont see it htough01:12
Mathisenadams1991, ?01:12
raubrud77: can you give an example? Question confuses me01:12
adams1991Mathisen, you said to run gnome i do it at the login screen?01:12
Mathisenadams1991, logout and change what X to start01:12
rud77like /home/name01:13
rud77can I change "name"01:13
raubrud77: yes, but you will also need to update the user's profile to reflect the new homedir name01:14
=== james is now known as Guest57919
raubrud77: To rename, you can use mv01:14
rud77alright cool01:14
raubMight need to do "sudo mv" though01:14
rud77this dd command is taking a while to complete01:15
adams1991Mathis, cool it works now.. thanks dude.. i actually dont even like the options it gives to change the UI haha01:15
rud77the cursor is just blinking with no feedback from the terminal01:15
rud77does that mean it's "loading"?01:15
Mathisenadams1991, dont understand what do you dont like ?01:16
Mathisenrud77, yes01:16
rud77seems to be writing .mod files to the drive01:17
rud77I've never seen that file type before01:17
Mathisenrud77, you can pass " status=progress " also after command to show info01:17
Mathisenbut just let it work now01:17
rud77didn't seem to work01:18
rud77what are these .mod files01:18

werdfriekwant me to be treated differently than others?02:16
vfwwerdfriek: Just trying to be helpful.  (It's what I did.  I looked at the man files, and determined that they were the same.)  What we do here is exchange information.02:16
werdfrieknho0w youi how you feel?02:16

vfwwerdfriek: Your imagination is running away with you.02:18
werdfriekI asked in an IRC chat channel for the distribution that I use because I wanted an answer via chat (not some other way) I thought that would be ok02:18

vfwwerdfriek: Ok. You got an answer.02:19
werdfriekI asked for a reason (I asked here in #ubuntu)02:19
werdfriekI don't even give a sht anymore02:19
werdfriekmoderator - I came to this channel asking a simple, direct question - to which I expected to get an equally simple, direct answer. Instead I am told something to go read/study to find my answer. I''ve been an ubuntu user for over 6 years; and, I don't know what motivates others to come to this channel to ask their question but I do know what motivates me. I hope to simply be given the answer...02:31
werdfriek...(the same way I've done for others and seen done most of the time). As it is, when someone responds by telling me to go read about it myself (instead of just answering) I feel alienated and prejudiced (as if I'm not part of some clkique where people treat each other with decency). Can you offer any suggestions on the best way to handle something like this when it is ongoing.02:31

kankushtI love ubuntu02:59
kankushtUbuntu is awesome02:59
kankushtUbuntu is great too03:00
kankushtI have a question03:01
kankushtA very important question03:01
Sean_McGwe have potentially nonsensical answers03:02
kankushtthank you very much for answer03:02
kankushthere is the question: is it good idea to delete windows from a very new laptop?03:03
kankushtthen replace it for ubuntu03:03
Sean_McGthats personal choice03:03
Bashing-omkankusht: Culture shock can be tough to adjust to .03:04
Sean_McGbut if you dont have restore media, then reinstalling windows might be impossible03:04
kankushtI see, so it means that it doesn't matter if I have windows or not in my new laptop03:04
bazhangkankusht, try ubuntu in a vm first03:05
bazhangkankusht, you can even try using ubuntu in a full screen virtual machine such as virtual box03:06
Sean_McGVurtualBox is free if you need a vm provider03:06
Jonno_FTWhello, I'm trying to install amdgpu-pro on 16.10 but I get an error after rebooting03:06
kankushtI use ubuntu studio on my desktop, but I have been reading a lot and I think I have some doubts about OS03:06
bazhangwhat doubts kankusht03:06
Sean_McGso then maybe a VM is a good starting point for you03:06
kankushtI read about bios updates, it seems that it is impossible to update it without linux03:07
kankushtsorry I mean windows03:07
greyrabbitoooh really ?03:07
bazhangkankusht, try in ##windows for those issues03:08
greyrabbitlike i need to update my BIOS03:08
greyrabbitbut i'am using BackBox03:08
kankushtI'm not really sure, but I really want to get rid of windows forever03:08
Sean_McGyes it is rare to get BIOs updates for Linux, but lately I have found most motherboards have BIOS updaters right in their UEFI screens03:08
bazhanggreyrabbit, then get help from the backbox people its not supported here03:08
rocketbombkankusht: updating bios is not something you need to do if system is working fine03:09
bazhangkankusht, you seem to pollling asking about whether to drop windows etc, thats entirely a personal choice and not really on top ic here03:09
Sean_McGaye, always look at the README for a BIOS update to see if it _actually solves an issue you are having_03:09
kankushtinteresting, so the bios is not that important then?03:09
bazhangkankusht, of course it is important03:10
Sean_McGit _can_ be important03:10
kankushtsorry I mean updating bios03:10
bazhangagain kankusht getting help with bios update in windows is for ##windows , so ask there03:11
nomicwill a file written to a cd (disk burner) .. within ubuntu, be readble by xp03:11
bazhangkankusht, if you want to ask the poll type should I go full ubuntu then try the chat channel, #ubuntu-offtopic03:12
Sean_McGnomic: possibly, especially if the disc image ia ISO966003:12
kankushtwell, I have one year using ubuntu on my desktop I never have updated my bios so I believe it should be fine03:12
kankushtanother question03:15

Sean_McGyou might want to ask that to Google -- there are absolutely tonnes of artivles about how to build software03:16

bazhang!compile | kankusht03:17
ubottukankusht: Compiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first). Also read !checkinstall03:17
ubottucheckinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages.

tpw_ruleshello. i need an old version of the package nvidia-graphics-drivers-370 from https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa . any idea where i might find it?04:42
Sean_McGtpw_rules: apt-cache search nvidia04:44
tpw_rulesSean_McG: i mean it has nvidia-370 in it but i need an older version04:44
tpw_rulesi upgraded today and now i'm getting weird issues and i want to go back04:44
Sean_McGerm, they have 361 and older versions04:45
tpw_rulesno not that04:45
tpw_rulesan earlier dot release04:45
Sean_McGI doubt they do that04:45
tpw_rulesi mean it was an earlier dot release a few days ago04:45
Sean_McGoh, then maybe search on launchpad?04:46
Sean_McGand then download the appropriate .deb files and use dpkg to install them04:46
OerHeksolder versions than 370.28 are removed.04:48
OerHeksbut your nvidia updates was days ago, and current updates give problems, so it is likely not the nvidia driver that is your issue.04:49
tpw_ruleswell i just turn on my system for the first time in a couple weeks. but yeah i think you're right04:49
tpw_rulesit's a really bizarre issue so i'm just trying to undo the things that got done04:49
OerHeksbecause it is bizarre, no deed to explain what issue you run into?04:50

NokajiHi, for some reason Ubuntu Software fails to display any software lists, e.g. under All & Installed. Updates states up to date and last checked 06:07. Fortunatley I can install proggies via Synaptic Prog Mgr but I now cannot search for new software08:00
tozenNokaji: Have you tried to reinstall SM?08:10
saintromualdDoes anyone know a real nice gui program that sorts out your programs for you. I use i3 as my managing window but I would like to have something that sorts out the programs I have installed because quite frankly I forget the names of the software programs I have installed.08:10
saintromualdI know synaptic has a history of programs, but it is not sorted out.08:10
NokajiI haven't, tozen, maybe I'll do that now08:11
tozensaintromuald: apt-cache pkgnames08:17
Nokajitozen: I tried the remove/re-install, it still has the identical problem08:17
tozenNokaji: see your ~/.config is there any software-manager directory available? if yes, then delete it and restart software-manager.08:21
NokajiOkay, I'll try that. i'm wondering if my recent upgrade (month ago) to 16.04 from 14.04 caused this08:22
tozenNokaji: also could be nice to post your terminal output on <software-manager> command08:22
NokajiI have a software-centre, yup ... with a softwarecenter.cfg file (only file there), the uninstall deleted 6MB, then 36MB of data, reinstall reloaded 6MB08:25

cfhowlettzh1, if you system is set LTS only, won't work.  16.10 is NOT lts11:22
zh1cfhowlett, ah ok, i see, i will have to install it from scratch then?11:22
cfhowlettzh1, or change your update settings away from LTS only11:23

cfhowlett!fcm > koroso11:26
ubottukoroso, please see my private message11:26
zh1cfhowlett, then after it i should enable lts again? what do i gain from a lts and non-lts?11:27
cfhowlettzh1, 5 years support for LTS.  9 months for non-LTS.11:27
zh1cfhowlett, in average how much time would take me to upgrade from 16.04 to 16.10?11:28
cfhowlettzh1, completely depends on you ISP speed11:28
zh1if it's like 4mb/ps11:29
zh1its the time it gets to get the iso?11:29

cfhowlettzh1, as you are on remote, upgrade in place.  but why, exactly do you need to upgrade to 16.10?11:31
zh1cfhowlett, it's always good to upgrade no?11:32
zh1cfhowlett, excuse my ignorance, but exactly why?11:33
=== rany is now known as IRChax0r2016
cfhowlettif the only reason you're upgrading is that you "should", I strongly suggest you stay with LTS.  Fewer headaches and a more polished experience.  LTS are meant for long-term use.  non-LTS are more experimental11:33
zh1cfhowlett, but can't i enable lts again after?11:34
cfhowlettzh1, of course11:34
=== IRChax0r2016 is now known as rany
zh1then? its ok11:34
cfhowlettzh1, up to you11:34
Ben64it's not a switch11:34
ducassezh1: but you will need to reinstall to get back on an lts release11:35
Ben64if you upgrade to 16.10, you'd have to upgrade to 17.04, 17.10, then finally 18.04, or reinstall 16.0411:35

ducassezh1: of course not11:35
zh1ducasse, i dont get why i need to reinstall if i upgrade and switch to lts11:37
ducassezh1: you can upgrade to 16.10, but if you then decide that an lts release is better for you then you will need to reinstall 16.0411:37
cfhowlettzh1, LTS > LTS is one path.  otherwise you can only jump from one release to the very next release.  if you forget to do that within the time limit, you must clean install the next verssion11:37
zh1by the way the upgrade as already started...11:37
zh1ducasse, but if i am already on a 16.10 why i would need to reinstall a 16.04?11:39
cfhowlett16.10 is not an lts.  next lts would be 18.04.11:39

zh1question is that if i can always upgrade from a lts and non lts, after releases11:42

battleaxekind of an idiotic question, but can i use an buntu live cd to shrink my win7 partition, down to say ~20-25gb from its current 75gb? writing the changes and all, just not installng ubunu at this tim.14:06
tomreynrskumar: this suggests that the kernel update is not the source of the issues you are seeing, but something else is. i'm afraid i can't tell which other configuration changes (you made) or software updates may be causing it. you could review your kernel logs in /var/log/ to see how suspend / resume failed, then search the web for this error message. this may bring up a bug report and a workaround.14:07
tomreynbattleaxe: yes, there is a utility called gparted which you can use for this purpose.14:10
battleaxethanks tomreyn!14:10
tomreynbattleaxe: alternatively use http://gparted.org/livecd.php ; yet another approach which may work is to shrink the partition (and file system) from within the running windows system using disk management (diskmgmt.msc)14:14

dorkmafiaI also have no drive in the embeded SCU port14:23
kervala(and I would need to support all Ubuntu versions from Precise)14:24
tomreyndorkmafia: you would not need to install ubuntu to make changes to your firmware configuration. your second statem,ent suggests this is not the issue you are running tinot, though, in this case, i'd suggest you try a firmware (bios / uefi) upgrade.14:24
dorkmafiathe only supported image i could find was 12.x ubuntu14:24
dorkmafiatomreyn: I think I have to install windows to get the firmware14:25
dorkmafiamy windows install got hosed14:25
dorkmafiai cant even boot into windows anymore14:25
tomreyndorkmafia: also, since you don't need to use the SCU RAID Option ROM, make sure oyu use "legacy bios" mode, not uefi.14:26
Ntemisi need some help please , when i run apt update i get this line: AppStream cache update completed, but some metadata was ignored due to errors.14:26
tomreyndorkmafia: most of the time you don't need windows to inustall HP firmware upgrades.14:26
dorkmafiaok legacy bios mode for PXE Option ROMS? or Mass Storage Option Roms?14:29
dorkmafiai don't see a SCU RAID Option ROM specifically14:29

ubottupastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com19:45

Bashing-omuxfi: What is it that you are doing ? pastebinit is pretty flexable .19:50
uxfiBashing-om;  it keeps giving me a Ubuntu paste link whilst I want it to be pastebin only19:51

Phanesthere's a public database of compatibility tests19:51
marsivaleh yeah but this is fairly new and not even remotely close to being on there yet. but I know there are supposed to be ways normally to kinda make a best guess to it19:52
Phanesmarsival, https://appdb.winehq.org19:52
uxfidoesnt seem to work19:52
Bashing-omuxfi: No, I think pastebinit is dedicated as "ubuntu" . other releass also have their own sites .19:53
PhanesBashing-om, it's in the first line of the dang manpage19:54
uxfiBashing-om; gotcha19:54
marsivalI searched there before and it's not on there yet. Just wanted to know if there might be a predictable conflict before trying it myself19:54
uxfithat works19:54
PhanesBashing-om, stop giving people inaccurate and unresearched advice19:54
Phanesmarsival, try and see.  check out #wine if you get stuck, they'll have deeper knowledge of troubleshooting the wine RTE19:55
uxfiBashing-om;  ah you're right "Optional arguments (not supported by all pastebins):"19:55
uxfiso technically the pastebin "-b" added to the argument could not be supproted19:55

DVA5912is LVM for adding physical disks after the fact? so if you have your system setup, instead of doing the right thing and modifying your raid to add the disk, quick add it to LVM and get it working? seems really hackish20:09

erpoI'm trying to build the zoneminder packages from source by running the script at https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/blob/master/utils/do_debian_package.sh. Specifically, I'm running ./do_debian_package.sh xenial 2016112701 local master, and it does build a deb package. However, the patches inside the debian/patches directory inside the source tree are *not* being applied prior to compilation and the creation of the package. Would someone20:13
erpofamiliar with building debian packages give that script a try and tell me if they get the same result?20:13
ioriauxfi upload where ?20:14
DVA5912Jordan_U: but aside from the redundancy is there any other real reason to stack LVM and Raid together20:14
Jordan_UDVA5912: As opposed to using RAID but not using LVM you mean?20:15
DVA5912Jordan_U: yes20:15
DVA5912Jordan_U: because it feels like just another pof20:16
Jordan_UDVA5912: Well, I assume that you will want at least two volumes on your array, the volume containing your root filesystem, and the volume containing swap. You could make two partitions on each of the member drives and end up having two arrays, or you could just have one array with LVM on top. If you go with the latter you can easily resize your swap or get rid of it if you want more space for your root20:17
Jordan_UDVA5912: Another solution to that problem would be to add a partition table on top of the array. That would work, but 1: People often get confused when there are nested partition tables and 2: LVM is more flexible than a partition table while not incurring any performance penalty (unless you use features like snapshots, which you can simply choose not to do).20:19
DVA5912Jordan_U: So this is really looking to boil down to simplicity. I agree, putting a patition table on top of raid could become confusing for the next sysadmin. You are the first one to actualy make this seem clearer, Thank you!20:21

arm1eCan someone please help me with wifi issues on intel 726021:47
pseudo_patata: Ubuntu maintains a repository of software, but not all software on the planet. As a general thing, when software is closed source (i.e. proprietary) they can't/won't ship it. In this case, I'm pretty sure you can download a Ubuntu (debian) package directly from the telegram site21:48

mccanyone know how to write pure binary code ( 0 , 1 )  and run it on ubuntu  ?22:11
pseudo_mcc: That's not exactly how it works22:13
pseudo_mcc: Basically. You have programming languages (like C/C++) which are translated from program text (source code) by a program (compiler) into a binary format. Simplifying a few things, that binary format corresponds to assembly instructions, which you *could* write yourself. Assembly instructions vary by chip, so writing the same (logical) code for your phone and PC would differ since the former is probably an ARM and the latter an X86 chip.22:15

vidyMDTech-us: btrfs is raid + lvm + filesystem in a single layer, so yes there are benefits.  but my servers still run lvm :)22:33
MDTech-usvidy: what is your reasoning behind not using it?22:33
MDTech-usis it hard to setup?22:33
vfwKiwi_Alien cat /etc/samba/smb.conf |nc termbin.com 9999  #Let's look and see.22:35
MDTech-usvidy: so, to sum it up, should I buy 1 500GB drive or 2 250GB drives?22:38
vidyMDTech-us: inertia more than anything.  btrfs hasn't been buggy for years22:39
MDTech-usvidy: oh, I see. looks to be easy to back it up too22:39
vfwKiwi_Alien: BTW, you do know that you have to restart samba after each config edit, right?22:40
Kiwi_Alienyes :)22:40
Kiwi_Alienvfw i have samba working. Now i wish to drop its internet access. Make it LAN only, but still routed to router22:41
vidyMDTech-us: i'd probably do 2x 250 and run btrfs in metadata raid1 and data raid1.   if you wanted the space you could run data raid0 but make your backups.  if you got a 4th you could migrate to raid1022:43
MDTech-uscan you upgrade to a RAID 10 later on?22:43
Delta_Hi there22:44

=== Delta_ is now known as Guest99631
Guest99631Just want to know how can i setup dead time for system.22:44
vidyMDTech-us: as long as you have the open blocks for whatever arrangement you can migrate whenever you want, raid0/1/5/6/10.  though i've only used 1 and 1022:44
MDTech-usoh. cool22:45
MDTech-usthanks for the help!22:45
vfwKiwi_Alien: Use hosts alow option22:46

vfwKiwi_Alien: https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/ch06.html22:53
Kiwi_Alienvfw i will read that now. Just booting it up now.. Was going to block server in router22:54
vfwKiwi_Alien: The choice is yours.22:54
Kiwi_Alienjust finished first year of uni :D to many options for newb :)22:55
vfwbe accessable from the outside anyway.22:56
vfwKiwi_Alien: But unless you have port forwarding or some sort of tunneling through the router, it's not going to be accessable from the outside anyway.22:56
vfwKiwi_Alien: However, it's always a good idea to only alow the intended PCs access to your shares.22:57
Kiwi_Alienthis is what im strugling to understand mate22:57
Kiwi_AlienI thought, if i plug her in to the net its open game for the server22:58
vfwKiwi_Alien: While it is true that routers connect one network to another, it does not mean that computers outside your router have access to everything on your LAN.23:00
vfwKiwi_Alien: Google information about IP addresses and netmask.  Your netmask sets how much of an access you have across IPs.23:01
Kiwi_Alienwhat do you recomend i read to get a better understanding of connecting a home server on LAN23:01
vfwKiwi_Alien: Gain a working knowledge of how IP addresses work in relation to the netmask you have set.  (The inside network is totally different from the outside ones.)23:03
vfwKiwi_Alien: And routers, how to allow traffic in and out of routers, port forwarding and DMZ and tunneling etc. etc. etc.23:04

jayjoI can't get through the login screen of ubuntu 16.06, but I can access my machine through a shell. Any ideas why this would happen, or have you heard of this before? I have space in my home directory23:22
jayjoI can login from the login screen to a tty23:22
jayjoany ideas on how to fix this?23:22
Bashing-omjayjo: Update broke a proprietary grahic's driver ? From that terminal what results : ' sudo lshw -C display ' . in the configuration line .23:23
jayjoBashing-om: driver=nvidia latency=023:24
Bashing-omjayjo: Well that says a driver is loaded . Now do "you" have the rights to access your desktop ' ls -al .ICEauthority .Xauthority ' Are "you" the owner and grouped to these access rights files ?23:26
jayjoBashing-om: I own both group and individual23:28
Bashing-omjayjo: At this point all I know to do is look at X's log file . see if X is in a happy state . ' cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log ' .23:30
highwaychileHow do I tell which partition/volume Ubuntu is on?23:45
vfwjayjo: What happened?23:46
vfwhighwaychile: sudo fdisk -l23:47
vfwhighwaychile: cat /etc/fstab23:47
vfwhighwaychile: sudo blkid23:47

vfwThis is #ubuntu, (#windows is down the hall.)   :)23:51
highwaychilevfw: lol. But do you know what could cause these error messages, warning of too little space in Ubuntu when trying to install things?23:53
vfwhighwaychile: Must be one of your partitions is almost full.23:53
vfwhighwaychile: df -h23:54
vfwhighwaychile: Are you dual boot? Or VirtualBox?23:54
highwaychileJust strange that a mostly fresh install of Xubuntu would use up 15+ GB23:55
highwaychileDual bot23:55
vfw15G is not very much space.23:55
vfwhighwaychile: Look and see. Then use GpartedLIVE to shrink one partition and expand another.  Show us what you have and we can give you some more specific  advise.23:57
highwaychilevfw: I will exit and try that now, thanks23:58
vfw Non-Destructive partitioning tool23:58
vfwhighwaychile: Yea, boot to Ubuntu and get back with us.23:58
