Ben64what's the actual issue00:01
infinitephantasmbasically i have the conexant hsf usb modem i'm trying to install, but can't seem to find the proper drivers to without having it be required on a older version00:01
infinitephantasmthese drivers specifically00:02
geniiugh, Conexant00:02
infinitephantasmit's annoying to even find the proper solution and i've looked everywhere00:02
geniiinfinitephantasm: I can tell you already that the linuxant source tree contains 32bit binary blobs that no longer work on pretty much anything00:03
infinitephantasmgreat =_=00:04
geniiinfinitephantasm: I had the exact same problem with them before00:04
infinitephantasmit just says "Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?"00:05
infinitephantasmit defaults to [/lib/modules/4.4.0-53-generic/build]00:05
infinitephantasmand that doesn't work because it's missing version.h because it doesn't exist00:06
infinitephantasm(the whole path ((not /lib/modules/, the generic part) just doesn't occur)00:06
infinitephantasmthen it grants me the option of using /boot/config-4.4.0-53-generic in a temporary kernel tree00:06
infinitephantasmtry that, it waits a couple seconds, then basically fails because it's unable to prepare said temporary kernel tree00:07
infinitephantasmso basically if i can't get this installed i'm gonna have to buy one that actually works :l00:08
geniiinfinitephantasm: If you still want to persist on this, take a look at my extremely old posting on it, #49 at https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1015673&page=500:08
Ben64seems like buying a new one would be best00:08
infinitephantasmi'm running it on a VM, so if i break anything it won't be a total loss00:09
geniiinfinitephantasm: As you can see, I did manage to get things working back in 200600:09
infinitephantasmit's 10 years after that so i don't know if it'll work lmao00:09
infinitephantasmby the way, it seems someone's still trying to keep driver links alive00:13
geniiinfinitephantasm: Your Mileage May Vary00:13
infinitephantasm@ george-hopkins.github.io/hsfmodem/00:13
infinitephantasmnice on them00:13
geniiinfinitephantasm: But truthfully, you're just better off to go grab a modem that works under Linux instead, the amount of time that can be wasted on things like this, if you count up the hours, you're losing a lot of potentially useful time for some other thing00:14
infinitephantasmi'm a 16 year old in high school with no job. i have no such thing as useful time :P00:15
infinitephantasm+ i have no money to buy what i need (dell nw147 or whatever) anyways00:15

Geois GNOME the default on desktop edition?01:31
Geobut first, i have a larger problem- i just installed in a VM from the iso, and now when i apt update, it only looks to the CD as the source- how do I get it to look to the internet repos?01:32
cfhowlettGeo, plain vanilla ubuntu default is unity01:34
Geoso what package would I need to install to get that up and running?01:35
cfhowlett... "that" ?01:35
cfhowlettGeo, did you install ubuntu or ubuntu-gnome?01:35
Geoi guess the original question scrolled off- I installed from a server iso, not desktop01:35
Geoif i want to enable the default desktop environment ubuntu desktop ships with, which packages do I need to install?01:36
cfhowlettah.  right.  sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop will get the full meal deal.01:36
Geocool, thanks01:36
Geoand then for my harder question- any thoughts on that?01:36
cfhowlettGeo, restate the question01:36
Geowhy the source list only seems to be looking for the cdrom?01:36

justPielets try this again: Does anyone have any experience installing wifi drivers that don't play nice with ubuntu 16.04? The card in question is asus PCE-n53. The card shows up in lspci but doesn't show up in iwconfig. I compiled the drivers using make and make install. I then ran modprobe right after with no luck. Anyone have any ideas?01:42
GeoI'm installing this b/c my upgrade from 14 to 16 (in a vm) has started freezing the VM on a near daily basis and, in some cases, even the host01:42

MahjonggSchrodingersScat, I'd like to disable wifi and use the ethernet port to connect that box to the LAN01:54
SchrodingersScatMahjongg: did your ethernet require special drivers?01:54
tsimonq2So back to my question. How do I set this up and mount them so that I can run debootstrap, and how do I configure that system to boot from the RAID array?01:55
MahjonggSchrodingersScat, it does not, and it is actually now connected, without me doing anything, I guess all I need to do is to make sure if that connection will be persistent if I reboot and disable wifi connection afterwards01:55
tsimonq2I need a separate /boot partition, right?01:55
tsimonq2Basically I want to do this but not with the alternate installer: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID01:55

tsimonq2Or boot the Ubuntu Server image in a VM mounting all my discs and do the install from the VM...02:13
tsimonq2Argh, if only someone had a RAID array already set up as their root partition, so I could just look at how it's mounted in /etc/fstab02:14

RedKorvoyup. it's weird though, this wifi adapter is supposedly super famous among the networking crowd for white hat hacking etc. I'm trying to use it with Hak5's Wireshark tutorials, but it won't go into monitor mode. No fix so far.05:01
Sean_McGglitchd_: not sure, it might have to be specially prepared for that. I have a bootable USB key from work that I want to do the same thing with (rather than having to reboot the machine).05:03

glitchdi bought a new hard drive. i copied my entire linux partition to my external hard drive for backup. installed the new hard drive. installed everything i need to install. but i realized i forgot to export my bookmarks from chromium. so i would like to boot the old hard drive in a virtualmachine to access chromium and get the bookmarks.05:19
kk4ewtdid you copy your /home05:20
glitchdkk4ewt, i copied the entire partition with dd05:20
glitchdso yes.05:20
cfhowletteh, hold up there05:21
kk4ewtdo your bookmarks should still be there05:21
cfhowlettif you had /home in a dedicated, separate partition ...05:21
Sean_McGsomewhere under ~/.local I would think05:21
glitchdive looked and cannot seem to find a bookmark.html file05:21
glitchdill have another look right now then05:21
kk4ewtdid you look in chromium05:21
glitchdlol yes05:22
glitchdhmm i wonder if i can just launch chromium from the usb drive then..?05:24
Sean_McGoooh I was wrong... it's in ~/.config/google-chrome/ on my machine05:25

NikeshCan anyone guide me on transfering my GPG and SSH keys to a new machine? I've tried various ways of copying over the `.ssh/` and `.gnupg` directories with `scp` to the new machine and it somewhat works in that I can unlock my passwords with `pass`, but doing e.g. `git clone` with ssh it asks me to unlock with my passphrase and it keeps failing when I input the passphrase. I'm not sure which step I might have missed06:52
wafflejockNikesh, are you sure git is using the correct ssh key?06:54
TragicM3LONanyone familiar with RAID?06:54
wafflejockNikesh, looks like you can specify a particular key to use in a couple ways depending on git version http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4565700/specify-private-ssh-key-to-use-when-executing-shell-command-with-or-without-ruby06:55
Nikeshwafflejock: I don't know.. but it seems to be, it as it matches the email I have set up for GPG06:55
wafflejockNikesh, if you have the original public key can check if that is on the server06:56
Nikeshwafflejock: Yes I have the original on this machine and it works06:57
Nikeshmaybe `ssh-add` - from the StackOverthrow thread you linked06:57
TragicM3LONis there a command to check the status of a /dev/sda even if it doesn't show up with fdisk?07:00
Nikeshwafflejock: I may have found the issue.. I run `ssh-add` and it error message that the permissions for `id_rsa` are too open and it will be ignored07:01
inerkickHi. Need a help. I got ubuntu 14.04 running. But my arrows keys when pressed for longer duration using any editing or scrolling, doesn't work. It just moves one character or once07:03
NikeshThat gets closer as it now asks me for the passphrase for `id_rsa` but it keeps failing when I input the passphrase - and I don't think it's a typo because it works with `pass`07:03
inerkickI need to keep pressing multiple times those keys to move up or down or horizontal07:03
inerkickKindly help07:05
NikeshI was getting confused about the difference between the ssh-passphrase and the GPG passphrase07:06
wafflejockNikesh, ah okay cool07:07
wafflejockNikesh, for the permissions mine are all just read write for the owner and nothing for anyone else07:07
NikeshWell I guess not all the way there07:07
NikeshI was able to run `ssh-add` but my gpg passphrase won't unlock07:08
Nikeshit shows `gpg: decryption failed: No secret key`07:08
NikeshI thought that copying `.gnupg/` to the new machine would work for that07:08
wafflejockNikesh, hmm sorry not familiar enough with gpg to help you debug that really07:09
Nikeshmaybe there is something similar for gpg as `ssh-add`07:09

wedgienah: ''zpool replace <poolname> /dev/xxx'' where xxx is the new device name. This assumes that the dead disk is already gone08:57

TragicM3LONtbh, i really don't know anymore08:58

ychaoucheI would like to get to know its dbus interface and play with it12:35
ychaouchein particular, find a way to do a "findall" in calc with a shortcut12:35
blackflowychaouche: you're assuming libreoffice is a provider of dbus services, and not just a consumer. did you check the libreoffice documentation?12:36
lkeijserhi, I wanted to know if the recommended way is to do a release upgrade from 12.04 -> 14.04 or a clean install. This is very opinion based, but that's what I'm looking for :)12:37
ychaoucheblackflow: yep I thought libreoffice was a provider. No I didn't.12:37
blackflowychaouche: also, keyboard shortcuts don't sound like something done over dbus12:37
ychaoucheblackflow: no but you can bind them to qdbus commands if you wish through your DE.12:38
blackflowlkeijser: my opinion: backup data, try upgrade, if it breaks, reinstall :)12:38
ychaoucheblackflow: I already defined some good shortcuts for vlc12:38

=== beaver is now known as evilnewbie
xanguaYou know the answer14:51
BlackDexAjxa_: Just use the correct root-app to unroot your phone14:52
Ajxa_yeah ill find a way somehow, my question was (since the googled results are mixed) do i have to wipe the phone?14:53
Ajxa_i used the su app to unroot, it finished rebooted, but my applications still say that im rooted (the ones that refuse to run when i am)14:54
BlackDexset -x should depends on what the goal is why you want to unroot it14:55
BlackDexcheck with a su checker app if it still has su access14:55
BlackDexAjxa_: Else check http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=90087514:56
Ajxa_su checker says "Sorry! Root access is not properly installed on this device"14:56
BlackDexTachyon_: Sometimes starting the file with "#!/bin/bash -x" works14:57
Ajxa_is "superoneclick" legit? i could try that :D14:59
BlackDexAny rooting isn't legit unless the manufactor of the phone provides it15:00
BlackDexmost of the time it voids your warrenty15:01

Ajxa_not legal15:04
BlackDexah ;)15:04
BlackDexThat i don't know15:04
mikeymopAjxa_: the unroot procedure might not have removed su from /system/sbin/15:04
mikeymopor they stored a value from when you were rooted15:05
BlackDexAjxa_: Also sometimes a firmware upgrade from the manufactor via the desktop software unroots it totally15:05
BlackDexIt also could be that if you have any app installed which requires root rights, it could complain15:06
BlackDexsomething like greenify for instance15:06
Ajxa_i have several :/15:06
BlackDexSome apps check for those apps and then just say your phone is rooted15:07
Ajxa_i mean i want to unroot just so i can do a systemless root15:07
mikeymopAjxa_: do you have a file explorer on your phone with root capabilities?15:07
Ajxa_mikeymop: im on android if you want to switch there, and yes i have esexplorer although i dont know if the root rights still work since i did the "Unroot" with SuperSU15:08

some0nei have a 14.04 ubuntu and didn't see the auto update option when connecting my modem15:35

codepoetnif it is there then go to system setting15:36
some0nei have a text-only ubuntu15:36
Picisome0ne: so how are you checking for this 'auto update option'?15:38
codepoetnin that under system you will find software and updates, click on it you will find additional drivers options, inside it it displays all the drivers that needs to be installed for plugged hardwares, if it is not already installed.15:38

haxabjaWill I get updates from their repo or do I need to add it manually?15:44
codepoetnUsing ubuntu-drivers, the available commands are described below: usage: ubuntu-drivers [-h] [--package-list PATH] <command>List/install driver packages for Ubuntu.positional arguments: <command>            See below optional arguments: -h, --help           show this help message and exit  --package-list PATH  Create file with list of installed packages (in                      autoinstall mode) Available commands:  debug: Pri15:45
codepoetnnt all available information and debug data about drivers.   autoinstall: Install drivers that are appropriate for automatic installation.  devices: Show all devices which need drivers, and which packages apply to them.  list: Show all driver packages which apply to the current system.15:45

haxabjadeb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xenial contrib     According to your distribution, replace 'xenial' by 'vivid', 'utopic', 'trusty', 'raring', 'quantal', 'precise', 'lucid', 'jessie', 'wheezy', or 'squeeze'.15:49
haxabjaShould I use xenial? I have Ubuntu 16.10.15:50

EriC^^haxabja: use yakkety ^15:51
nrml1thanks Pici15:51
tgm4883nrml1: that seems like the incorrect way to think about it. IMO you shouldn't be checking HWE or not, you should be checking if the particular package you have is of a high enough version15:51
haxabjaPici: I'm looking at: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads15:51
Picihaxabja: I'm looking at http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/dists/yakkety/ :)15:51
nrml1tgm4883: which way? my way or Pici's? and we're running 14.04.5 systems with unattended upgrades running15:52
tgm4883nrml1: check the kernel version you are running, then check the link that Pici provided. See if your version is affected (it probably was) and then update to a fixed version15:53
nrml1got it ok, makes sense tgm488315:53
tgm4883nrml1: saying "i'm running 14.04.5, does this affect me" seems like not enough/not the right information15:53

HeXiLeDhi guys. i am not a ubuntu user but am trying to help a friend with a remote computer that keeps suspending and then losing internet connectivity which will then cuts ssh access until the next hard boot. I tried to edit some confs to prevent this to happen but was not successful. What should i be looking into (without have to mess with grub boot parameters) ?17:22
ikoniaHeXiLeD: what configs have you edited ?17:22
HeXiLeDwas a while ago but had something to do with kde17:23
HeXiLeDcant remember for sure17:23
ikoniait sounds like the network card is just not waking up after suspend17:23
ikoniathe easy answer is to disable suspend17:23
HeXiLeDthat is what i want. but where17:25
HeXiLeDacpi ?17:25
ikonianormally in the desktop's power management settings17:25
HeXiLeDssh=cmd only17:27
ikoniawhat ?17:27
HeXiLeDi have no access to GUI to go play with desktop's power management settings17:28
EriC^^HeXiLeD: it should be somewhere in gsettings17:28
ikoniaHeXiLeD: ok ? so ask him to do it17:28
ikoniaEriC^^: think he's on kde17:28
HeXiLeDhe is remote too.17:28
ikoniaHeXiLeD: wait until he gets home then17:28
HeXiLeDcomputer is on one county and we in another17:28
EriC^^kde doesn't use gsettings?17:28
ikoniaEriC^^: I didn't think it did, could be wrong though17:29
HeXiLeDplease. no help form GUI users only17:29
ikoniaHeXiLeD: use someone local to the computer17:29
HeXiLeDcmd line can solve this.17:29
ikoniaHeXiLeD: how do you know17:29
ikoniaHeXiLeD: you don't know the problem or how to fix it, yet your saying the command line can solve it17:29
ikoniaHeXiLeD: disable the X11 auto start up then17:29
HeXiLeDX is needed for later17:30
ikoniaHeXiLeD: why ?17:30
ikoniayou just said it's remote and you can't use it17:30
HeXiLeDlisten on the other side people are not computer literate. we have to set up the gui so be remote admin with vnc/teamviewer and so on. If you do not know how to use linux in the cmd line DO NOT waste my time17:31
ikoniaHeXiLeD: pretty sure I do now how to use the command line17:31
ikoniaHeXiLeD: if you're are skilled as you suggest you are, why do you not know how to fix it17:32
HeXiLeDffs... get an OS move to gentoo.17:32
ioriaHeXiLeD, but it goes to sleep because ssh dies, or suspend suddenly without any reason ?17:32

I can't use curl because the page has internal navigation so whatever page I am looking at within the Salesforce app, the webpage url is always the same.18:00
EriC^^try xdotool xpistos18:01
centaur5Anybody have some insight as to why firefox is incredibly slow lately? Not sure if it's isolated to 16.04 and 16.10 as I no longer have 14.04 machines but it consumes CPU and takes various seconds to do anything on 3 of my machines.18:02
EriC^^xpistos: mit has an insanely powerful version of what you're talking about, i forgot the name though18:02
EriC^^had to do with "eye"18:02
Lorne2016need some help - after recent reboot 14.04 LTS - when I login, monitor turns blank (off)...then it loops me back to login screen...?18:03
Lorne2016..sorry 16.04...18:04
EriC^^xpistos: sikuli18:05
geniiLorne2016: Check that permissions in /home/yourusername all belong to yourusername18:05
xpistosEriC^^: It is only mac and windoes18:06
Lorne2016genii thanks... can you walk me thru that?  (also note - it was working fine for months...)18:06
EriC^^xpistos: no it's linux too18:07
ioriaLorne2016, open a console (ctrl+alt+f1)  when you get the login screen and run     find ~/ -not -user $USER18:07
EriC^^xpistos: https://github.com/sikuli/sikuli18:07
EriC^^xpistos: i'd try xdotool first, if it does the job then great18:08
EriC^^the sikuli one supposedly has image identification, like you can feed it a picture and it will look for it on the screen itself18:08
Lorne2016ioria thx... CTL+Alt+F1 only gives me a blank screen - and monitor turns off...18:08
baecedarcentaur5, same feeling here18:09
ioriaLorne2016, try other Fx, i mean F2 ...18:09
ioriaLorne2016, if you can't get a console, you need Recovery18:09
centaur5baecedar, Have you found any solution? If it was 1 machine I'd consider that a problem but I have 3 machines same issue.18:09
Lorne2016ioria ok ctl-alt F2 does the same thing...monitor goes out (for about a minute...) the recycles to login screen18:10
Lorne2016ioria ok - you wanna walk me thru recovery?18:10
baecedarcentaur5, unfortunetly i am neewb on ubuntu, just starting, but i was little surprised about this delay, coming from windows18:11
ioriaLorne2016,  from Grub screen (press shift, if you don't see it) select Advanced Options then root shell18:11
centaur5baecedar, Are you running 16.04 as well?18:11
baecedarcentaur5, thought linux was faster than windows :p.. yes 16.0418:12
Lorne2016ioria - if it means anything - I have 2 video outs (only 1 monitor)... Nvidia and motherboard.... Nvidia port shows regular login screen...but motherboard port shows purple boot screen...(?)18:12
centaur5baecedar, I kind of wish I had time to waste going back to 14.04 to see if it's a problem. Honestly it only started months ago before it was fine. Chromium is still super fast.18:12
ioriaLorne2016,  in this cases, i'd disconnect one18:14
yenclgj5nlwPlease update htop to the one with support of showing sensors18:14
yenclgj5nlwthat one is in git18:14
ioriaLorne2016,  when you see the Recovery Menu , choose   Enable Networking and then Root Shell18:15
Lorne2016ioria  you mean physically disconnect one?  Like rip out the NVIDIA card? (cause I'm not going to rip the video output off the motherboard...)?18:15
baecedarcentaur5, yes probably. i haven t checked into chromium yet.18:15
ioriaLorne2016,  no, just the cable, if i get you18:16
Lorne2016ioria ok ... i only have 1 monitor... so only plugged into 118:16

Jordan_Uyocs0000: If you have a UEFI based machine then you should boot it via UEFI. grub-pc is for booting via BIOS, grub-efi-amd64 is for booting via (64 bit) UEFI. Both are grub2. Don't try to switch to grub-pc as there is more needed to change to booting via BIOS/CSM, and you shouldn't be booting via BIOS/CSM anyway. Stick with what you have :)19:14

I'm trying to automate this, and I can't seem to bypass it without19:18
timwismanual intervention. We've done a lot of research, and the only way to get around it is to add "exit 0" to the end, which I assume is just bypassing the upgrade... https://github.com/CityOfPhiladelphia/phila.gov/blob/master/scripts/predeploy.sh Any ideas?19:18

timwisJordan_U: thanks, i'll check that out. One issue I'm having is it's hard to test fixes because once I upgrade, I can't reproduce the pink screen, and have to spin up a new server to test it. Is there a way to cancel the apt-get upgrade process when I encounter the pink screen, so I can try a different command instead? (ctrl-c and ctrl-d do nothing)19:26
EriC^^Lorne2016: try with DISPLAY=:119:26
nuentoterEriC^^:  ok fixed them to match19:27
EriC^^nuentoter: great, try apt-get remove grub-pc19:27
EriC^^nuentoter: which ubuntu version is this?19:27
Lorne2016EriC^^ actually alt-shft-F1 just kills the monitor...its not coming back...19:28
Lorne2016EriC^^  I may need to reboot it....19:28
EriC^^Lorne2016: did the install work before or it's a fresh install?19:28
Jordan_Utimwis: I'm not sure if sigkilling it is a good idea, though I assume you're testing on scratch instances/installs. Another option for solving this problem more generally would be to install a test system using btrfs and make snapshots, or install in a VM and do the same (again, just for testing).19:29
Arunangshuhi i am using elementary os after installing pia from "https://helpdesk.privateinternetaccess.com/hc/en-us/articles/219438217-Installing-the-PIA-App-on-Linux" nether i am seeing any icon beside the clock as said on web page nor i am able to connect what should i do19:30
timwisJordan_U: yeah i'm just spinning up instances on AWS from a snapshot, but it takes like 5-10 mins each time.. it adds up when troubleshooting19:30
Lorne2016EriC^^ its been working for a year... I *did* have a lot of trouble in the past with the NVIDIA driver... (after each upgrade and reboot - I'd have to ctrl-alt-f1, sudo stop lightdm...sudo sh NVIDIA...etc...and re-install the NVIDIA drivers...but that problem got fixed about 4 mths ago...haven't had to do that in ages)19:30
yocs0000Jordan_U: from apt?! I can paste the uname -ram .... or lsb_release -a .... I do not know how to identify  the version with apt ....19:31
yocs0000OerHeks: the issue I have is that .... well, apport crashes a lot!!!!19:31
EriC^^Lorne2016: try cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | nc termbin.com 9999 and paste the link19:32
Lorne2016EriC^^ I can't perform any commands on the trouble machine - because I have no shell...no cmd19:32
yenclgj5nlwit's me again. I installed a kernel but it still hangs19:32
EriC^^Lorne2016: try booting with nomodeset or the recovery option in grub19:33
Jordan_Uyocs0000: Sorry, that was two different requests. 1: State what version of Ubuntu you're running. 2: Pastebin the output of "sudo apt install selinux-utils" that shows that it wants to remove grub-efi-amd64 .19:33
Lorne2016EriC^^   ...I'm working from a separate machine...19:33
yenclgj5nlwhmm, it dont19:33
EriC^^nuentoter: try dpkg -r --force-all grub-pc19:34
yenclgj5nlwit asks me to login in another virt term now19:34
EriC^^Lorne2016: ?19:34
EriC^^how is that possible?19:34
Arunangshuhi i am using elementary os after installing pia from "https://helpdesk.privateinternetaccess.com/hc/en-us/articles/219438217-Installing-the-PIA-App-on-Linux" nether i am seeing any icon beside the clock as said on web page nor i am able to connect what should i do19:34
Lorne2016EriC^^  sorry - just saying I have 2 computers...19:34
yenclgj5nlwhmmm, io error /dev/sda19:34
EriC^^Lorne2016: oh ok19:35

crippaI'm ssh-ing to my machine but I receive this error: Write failed: Broken pipe19:36
crippawhat is it? Can I ever ssh again, or do I need physical access to the machine to fix it?19:36
pfifoIve followed many threads about turning off screensaver and screen blanking, and I still get screen savers activatin in the middle of games and movies. Why does ubuntu and lubuntu have so many levels of redundancy to try and save my LCD from a non-existant issue of screen burning?19:37
yenclgj5nlwEriC^^: I have installed the kernel. This time it haven't hanged completely, but I still expierence problems: it seems /dev/sda is unmounted and to mount it I need to login but to log in I need it mounted.19:37
yenclgj5nlwI use lvm for system19:38
EriC^^yenclgj5nlw: hmm no idea19:38
Lorne2016EriC^^  So.. its nuts I can't get into GRUB (by holding Shift - the screen goes black...) and can't ctrl-shft-F1...screen goes black...  If I make a thumbdrive with 16.10 - and install that - you think it will fix whatever got out of wack?19:39
EriC^^Lorne2016: probably, yeah19:39
Lorne2016EriC^^ ok - thats what I'm gonna do...19:39
Bashing-omLorne2016: EriC^^ Just joined but is this a graphic's driver issue - in getting a black screen ?19:41
Lorne2016Bashing-om  Wouldn't surprise me...this dang NVIDIA driver has been a hassel for ever19:41
Lorne2016Bashing-om ....about 6 mths ago - every major update, I had to reinstall the driver...but that got resolved....suddenly upon reboot, the login screen shows fine - but after typing pwd, it shuts the monitor off!19:42
nuentoterEriC^^:  could i simply comment out everything in /var/lib/dpkg/info/grub.prerm and apt-get it again?  would that work since its the pre-removal  scrpipt error19:43
EriC^^nuentoter: yeah19:44
yocs0000Jordan_U: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23599966/19:44
EriC^^nuentoter: that's a good idea19:44
EriC^^nuentoter: looking at the script it doesn't seem to do much19:45
Bashing-omLorne2016: Sounds like you installed the nNidia driver from OEM .. in that case the driver is built on the presently installed kernel and updates to the kernel then break the graphic's driver .19:46
yocs0000Jordan_U: 16.10 64bit19:46
Jordan_Uyocs0000: That is not the output of "sudo apt install selinux". What is it?19:47
Lorne2016Bashing-om yeah - that's probably right... (its not like it was my idea to do it that way...I just followed Nvidia's instructions on their website!)19:47
egonsenhow can i tell apt-get to not automaitcally assume "yes" when using the "install" command?19:49
tgm4883egonsen: I don't think it does assume yes unless it's just a single package19:49
yocs0000Jordan_U: yes it is .... run the "sudo apt-get install selinux", and then tail of file "/var/log/apt/history.log"19:49
MonkeyDustegonsen  add -y19:49
egonseni want to assume no even when installing a single package19:50
tgm4883MonkeyDust: that would do the opposite wouldn't it19:50
nuentoterit worked! i finally removed grub-pc19:50
EriC^^nuentoter: awesome19:50
Bashing-omlirimaery: OEM imstall on 'buntu is that "means of last resort" . We have a PPA that has tested and made available the latest drivers . Wanna see what happens when the graphic's driver is changed ?19:50
EriC^^nuentoter: try to install grub-common19:50
EriC^^nuentoter: first run a quick apt-get -f install19:50
EriC^^and dpkg --configure -a19:50
MonkeyDusttgm4883  how so? -y means yes19:51
tgm4883MonkeyDust: he want's to always be prompted, not have it assume yes19:51
MonkeyDustok, misread, missed to 'not'   ' to not automaitcally assume "yes"'19:52
pavlosegonsen, there is a --assume=no in the apt-get install man page19:52
Jordan_Uyocs0000: I didn't ask you to run "sudo apt install selinux" then provide the tail of /var/log/apt/history.log. Please provide what is asked or explain why you can't. I guess in this case the reason that you can't is because you've already run the command and allowed it to remove grub-efi-amd64. Please pastebin the output of "sudo apt install grub-efi-amd64" (don't respond yes or no to what apt tries to19:52
MonkeyDustmissed the*19:52
Jordan_Udo yet, just provide the output to the point where it says what it will try to do then asks).19:52
pavlosegonsen, err, --assume-no19:53
tgm4883egonsen: what's the reason for wanting that? I'm not sure of a way to do that, but there are some other options that you can use19:53
nuentoterno errors19:53
tgm4883pavlos: that wouldn't solve the issue either though right? It would just answer no, which isn't the desired result19:54
nuentoteris there supposed to be some output from the dpkg --configure?19:54
pavlostgm4883, he said he did not want to assume -y which is yes19:54
pavlostgm4883, maybe I misunderstood19:55
yocs0000Jordan_U: listen, as you perfectly know, the output is exactly the same .... with more info, so if you want to help identify the bug good, if you do not want to, just say it .... frankly I do not give a toss whether ubuntu ahs the bug or not, it is just to help19:55
Jordan_Upavlos: sudo apt install --assume-no hello #This command will still install hello without further prompting.19:55
EriC^^nuentoter: no19:55
egonsen_tgm4883, it feels better to me when i have a two-level agreement when installing software19:55
tgm4883pavlos: correct that is what he said. But saying "I don't want apt to assume yes" is not the same as "I wan't apt to assume no"..... Actually, his second comment is that he wants it to assume no, so I suppose you're right19:56
=== egonsen_ is now known as egonsen
tgm4883egonsen: the answer has been provided, --assume-no19:56
egonsenalright! there isn't any config file where i can put this line, is it?19:56
tgm4883egonsen: I can see why it auto-assumes yes when it's only a single package. It's assuming that if you are both using sudo and saying "apt install <package>" that you actually want to install that package19:57
EriC^^nuentoter: try installing grub-common and see what happens19:57
sebbohHello.  I'm using 16.04.1 LTS.  The command `sudo apt-get build-dep emacs24` fails due to unmet dependencies.  My /etc/apt/sources.list is stock except I uncommented all the deb-src lines.  I think this constitutes a bug...19:57
Jordan_Utgm4883: See my above response to pavlos, --assume-no does not do what egonsen seems to be asking for.19:57
yocs0000sebboh: what dependencies seem to be missing?19:58
MonkeyDust--assume-no simply aborts the installation, just tried19:58
nuentoterit installed with no complaints19:58
tgm4883Jordan_U: ah you're right. Because it assumes no to all prompts, but it's not prompting for a single package19:58
Jordan_UMonkeyDust: sudo apt install --assume-no hello19:58
sebbohyocs0000: http://paste.lisp.org/+75EZ19:59
yocs0000sebboh: what happens if you run "sudo apt-get -f install"?20:00
tgm4883egonsen: so --assume-no doesn't do what you want, and a quick search suggests that as of 2014 that there was no way to do that20:00
tgm4883*no way to force it to always ask20:01
sebbohyocs0000: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.20:02
Jordan_Uyocs0000: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SELinux suggests that selinux-basics and selinux-policy-default should be used instead of "selinux". Do you get the same conflict with only those pacakges installed? Does it provide everything that you need?20:02
yocs0000Jordan_U: I do not need it .... I had the impression there was a dependency bug and trying to understand to file a bug ....20:04
egonsenalright. thanks guys :)20:04
EriC^^nuentoter: ok, try installing grub2-common20:05
EriC^^the grub-pc-bin and grub-pc20:05
yocs0000sebboh: mmmm .... I am afraid there is not a solution that I can think of tht I would recommed ....20:05
yocs0000sebboh: what I would suggest, is tryig to install the single dependencies, andunderstand why they do not work20:06
nuentoterwas already waiting on em lol, they just finished no complaints20:06
yocs0000sebboh: before forcing anything .... is this a production machine?20:06
sebbohFYI The --just-print option doesn't do anything helpful when I'm trying to do apt-get build-dep and some packages have unmet dependencies...  (If it just gave me a list of what it wants to install, I could install most of it and handle the missing bits myself.)20:06
Jordan_Uyocs0000: There probably is a dependancy bug, and from a quick look it's possible that the resolution might simply be to remove the no longer maintained selinux metapackage. Please do file a bug report.20:06
sebbohyocs0000: it's not prod but if you think about it, any kind of force option doesn't really make sense with build-dep ...20:07
yocs0000Jordan_U: exactly where I was going.20:08
yocs0000sebboh: be careful if you force packages ....20:08
EriC^^nuentoter: cool20:09
nuentoteri wonder what happened to cause all this though, all because of 2 "\" that got skipped over20:09
enoch85how do I change shortcuts in the Ubuntu Terminal? Marking it and putting in the new combination doesn't work...20:10
nuentotershould i be able to reboot and see what happens now?20:10
yocs0000sebboh: so, I suggest you try to install seprately the two individual dev packages, and try to understand what is wrong individually with them .... it is only two.20:10
pavlosMonkeyDust, see what Jordan_U wrote ... it installed package hello eventhough the flag --assume-no is present20:10
EriC^^nuentoter: try installing grub-gfxpayload-lists too20:10
EriC^^nuentoter: yeah20:10
sebbohmeh, I built this machine a minute ago because I know 3D works under virtualbox on this machine.  I'm not that worried about breaking it.  yocs0000 I did that a minute ago, they installed fine.20:10
yocs0000Jordan_U: but I am sorry this time I will not be filing a bug, do not like being treated that way when I am just helping. Next time, maybe.20:10
xangua1:11 PM <xangua> Trying to set up an old Celeron xeon laptop with my 16.04, can't change the freq scaling so it's always running at the highest frequency even when it says it's supported: pastebin.com/E3X7Wa0K20:11
yocs0000sebboh: the dev?20:11
MonkeyDustpavlos  yes,  i first tried it with apt purge --assume-no... that *did* abort20:11
Jordan_Uyocs0000: Fair enough. We're both volunteers here.20:11
yocs0000sebboh: librsvg2-dev and libgtk-3-dev?20:11
sebbohthey both installed.20:12
sebbohApparently postfix is a builddep of emacs.20:12
yocs0000sebboh: good, now you should be able to run the prevous command without problems .... try again.20:12
sebbohyocs0000: yeah20:12
pavlosMonkeyDust, correct, the install does not consider the flag but the purge did abort. Interesting ....20:13
yocs0000woops! dinner time!20:14
tgm4883pavlos: MonkeyDust --assume-no only assumes no to any questions that are asked. Doing the install of a single package never asks a question, but IIRC a --purge will always ask the question20:14
mkquistDD question... I copied my 16.04 install to another partition, but when I boot into it it behaves differently.. like classic desktop and compiz arent installed and the networking doesnt work...20:14
ioriaxangua, what's the cpu   celeron 530 , 40, or 50 ?20:16
Jordan_Umkquist: Having two filesystems with the same Globally Unique IDentifier, UUID is a good way to have problems. These problems could be affecting *both* installs, even if you haven't noticed problems in the other yet.20:16
sebbohmkquist: I stare into my crystal ball and guess that you're not booting the same kernel you were before, or that you aren't booting the same initrd.20:17
user01for a laptop with a 256GB SSD and 8 GB RAM . . . should a swap partition still be created?20:17
mkquistsebboh: correct on kernel20:17
Jordan_Umkquist: tune2fs -U can change an extN filesystem's UUID, then you would need to modify your /etc/fstab, and re-run "update-grub", and fix any other areas where the UUID is used.20:18
FinalXuser01: for a laptop, yes, if you want to hibernate the entirety of RAM should fit inside the swap20:18
FinalXor well, nowadays there's a new way of hibernating.20:18
arlionMore depens issues, this time a handful of packages are reporting they are not configured...20:21
arlion"Package ca-certificates is not configured yet."20:21
mkquistJordan_U: thank you ill do that...20:22
mkquistJordan_U: I guess I dont understand..  I thought if I dd'd the partition it would be an exact image.  I guess not?20:22
sebboharlion: I wasn't here earlier.  Are you seeing that message scroll by while dpkg/apt-get are still working?20:23
arlionNope, about 10 boxes are stuck there.20:23
sebboh10 boxes.  Machines?20:23
arlionthat's correct20:24
arlionI have upgrading 100 from 14.04.4 to 14.04.520:24
arlionFailure rate is consistently ~20%20:24
sebbohok, well, my initial understanding of your situation was way off, so I'll politely wander away. :)20:24
arlionI am currently massaging the rest of apt's issues away... but these are unique20:25
egonsenwhen i run "strace qmake", there is not a single reference to a read() for /usr/share/qtchooser/qt4-x86_64-linux-gnu.conf. but when i change the contents of that file, i get an error when executing "qmake", which means that qmake (or qtchooser, which is symlinked to by qmake) reads the contents of that file. why doesn't strace display the read operation?20:26
sebbohdoes qmake start another process when it runs?20:28
sebbohDoes strace require fancy permissions in order to catch everything?20:29
sebbohIf you try it on some other program that does read files, does it show the read()s then?20:29
nuentoterok time to reboot and see what happens20:29
Lorne2016Eric^^   ok - some updates... I made a thumbdrive to install 16.10...but when I choose install new...the screen goes black...and turns off (!!)20:31
Lorne2016EriC^^ But - I can get to the GRUB screen using the stick20:31
EriC^^Lorne2016: does try ubuntu work?20:31
Lorne2016EriC^^ nope.   same blackness20:32
EriC^^try nomodeset20:32
Lorne2016EriC^^  (and now I have 2 monitors plugged in - since it seemed like I was getting two different outputs on the two ports)20:32
egonsensebboh, /usr/bin/qmake is a symlink to /usr/bin/qtchooser (which is a executable shared lib). i don't know if strace needs fancy permissions (but also starting with sudo does not show the read()s) and yes, other reads are displayed, even whenn straceing qmake20:33
Lorne2016EriC^^  Ok - how do I try nomodeset ...?20:33
Lorne2016EriC^^  I'm at grub>20:33
EriC^^Lorne2016: is it uefi?20:33
Lorne2016EriC^^   The grub I'm using is off the 16.10 install drive version 2.0220:34
sebbohegonsen: does that .conf file have any symlinks?  You know, I'm actually just thinking out loud.  I don't know what the problem is.  But I liked how you phrased the question.20:35
ioriaLorne2016, not grub, but your motherboard /machine ... does it support uefi ?20:37
egonsensebboh, are you asking whether that .conf file is a symlink to another file? if that's the question, the answer is no20:37
Lorne2016ioria yes.  Sorry20:37
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter20:38
ioriaLorne2016, are you booting the installation media in efi mode ? is ubuntu your only OS ?20:38
Lorne2016ioria Yes - Ubuntu is my only OS on this machine... and honestly, I'm not sure what mode i'm booting it into20:38
ioriaLorne2016, how did you do the stick ? and what video card doo you have ?20:39
sebbohegonsen: that wasn't my question. :)  But the obvious alternative question is pointless... Why would somebody symlink TO that file?20:39
Lorne2016ioria I created the 16.10 stick with Startup Creator in my other computer (this one running 16.4)... and I have a NVIDIA video card20:40
egonsensebboh, even if someone linked to that file, how would the information, where those symlinks reside, help us? do you think there is a read() with the symlink rather than the conf file?20:40
EriC^^Lorne2016: press e over try ubuntu20:40
EriC^^and add nomodeset in the line that say  linux /boot/vmlinuz ....20:40
EriC^^then press ctrl+x20:40
OerHeksor when choosing install, hit F6 nomodeset20:41
ioriaLorne2016, try what EriC^^ said,  but don't use that (Startup Creator) but dd     sudo dd if=ubuntu.iso  of=/dev/sdx20:42
egonsenha, you were right! i must have been blind. there is a read() to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt-default/qtchooser//default.conf, which points to /usr/share/qtchooser/qt4-x86_64-linux-gnu.conf. great! thank you20:42
ioriaLorne2016, Startup Creator may have some issues20:42
sebbohegonsen: no, no, I don't.  Anyway, I'm not sure how strace would display the read() on a symlink.  But I'm just pondering in an academic manner.  You've got a real problem to solve, ignore me. :)20:43
OerHeksstartup creator should just work fine20:43
sebbohwait, wat? lol20:44
Lorne2016EriC^^  ok - so I'm adding nomodeset after ...boot=casper qiet spalsh nomodeset---     right?20:44
EriC^^Lorne2016: right20:44
Lorne2016Eric^^   OK!!  It booted into the "Try Ubuntu" thingy!!20:45
EriC^^Lorne2016: great20:46
Lorne2016Eric^^... now what?!20:46
tumulteIf I can't connect a firewire device without being root. What file should I check asido from /dev/hw0 ?20:46
EriC^^Lorne2016: 16.10 is supported for just a few months, if you can get your 16.04 working properly it'd be better imho20:47
Lorne2016Eric^^   I'm cool with that... what ideas do you have?!20:49
EriC^^Lorne2016: type sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 999920:49

Lorne2016Eric^^   use netcat21:03
EriC^^give it another go21:04
Jordan_Umkquist: It is an exact image, and that is actually the problem.21:04
Lorne2016EriC^^   it gave me the same response "use netcat."21:06
EriC^Lorne2016: i got dc21:09
EriC^Lorne2016: try one last time21:10
Lorne2016Eric^ ok - glad you're back21:10
Lorne2016Eric^ still telling me Use netcat.21:10
EriC^Lorne2016: ok, do you have pastebinit installed?21:10
Jordan_Umkquist: To understand the problem, it can help to first look at how things used to work. It used to be that your /etc/fstab would contain a reference to a partition like "/dev/sda1", which would generally work pretty well until it didn't. If you added another drive, that new drive might end up being named "sda" and suddenly the same /etc/fstab is mounting a partition from an entirely different disk for21:10
Jordan_Uyour root filesystem. With some configurations, just by rebooting a drive that was "sda" last boot might show up as "sdb" the next.21:11
Lorne2016Eric^ don21:11
Lorne2016t think so...21:11
EriC^Lorne2016: ok, type apt-get install pastebinit21:11
EvilAngelI have been avoiding asking for help with this but I can't find a real solution anywhere. For months and now every day (to the point of being nearly unusable) I get the dreaded !caled_font-cache_frozen failed error when I launch any gtk apps. Is there a solution? I've deleted nearly everything in my .cache and .config dirs and ran fc-cache -r and manually deleted all font caches. Anything I'm missing?21:11
=== EriC^ is now known as EriC^^
Lorne2016Eric^^ Ok done21:12
EvilAngel*cairo_font-cache* i meant21:12
Lorne2016Eric^^  (may have alreayd been there ;)  )21:12
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok, try cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit21:13
Lorne2016Eric^^  "You are trying to send an empty doc , exiting"21:15
Jordan_Umkquist: So instead of using static device names, which are unreliable, someone had the idea to use a different method for identifying the correct device to use. Every time a new filesystem is created a random number is generated, like cb9c46a4-8c3c-402d-aca8-a94669a89e9c, and stored in the metadata of the filesystem. It never changes (unless you explicitly change it with tune2fs yourself) and so even if21:15
Jordan_Uyour have 100 drives and you don't know for sure which was called "sdh" at last boot, you can check every partition on every drive looking for that number (cb9c46a4-8c3c-402d-aca8-a94669a89e9c) and once you've found it, you can be sure that you have the right drive! Because that number is supposed to be Universally Unique. Unfortunately, if you copy a system usng dd you now have two partitions with the21:15
Jordan_Usame filesystem, and thus the same randomly generated UUID, and so whichever is found first is used and assumed to be the correct one for that system.21:15
EriC^^Lorne2016: aha21:16
Lorne2016Eric^^  ok...?21:16
EriC^^Lorne2016: try apt-get purge nvidia*21:16
sebbohIf I were typing that command completely blind, I'd do apt-get purge nvidia\*21:17
Lorne2016Eric^^   ok - that executed something...21:17
EriC^^sebboh: apt-get would warn you of purge *21:18
Ben64doing 'purge package*' can have some weird effects21:18
sebbohNot sure what you two are talking about, I was referring to the potential shell expansion of that glob.21:19
Ben64i'm talking about apt21:19
EriC^^sebboh: yeah, you're right21:19
Ben64it handles wildcards in a weird way21:20
Lorne2016Eric^^  so...next step?  Reboot and watch it magically start up?! :P21:20
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok, open another terminal and type lspci -k | grep -A2 VGA | nc termbin.com 999921:20
sebbohBen64: ah, I see.21:20
Lorne2016Eric^^  its not happy about opening a second terminal... is XTerm the same thing?21:21
Ben64for example, doing "apt-get purge filter*" on my system would remove cups, gimp, evince, ubuntu-desktop, and more21:21
EriC^^Lorne2016: yes21:22
Ben64even though none of those start with "filter"21:22
MonkeyDustLorne2016  try ctrl-shift-t for a new tab21:22
sebbohBen64, I think that's because of the Ubuntu dependency tree, not because of odd handling of wildcards.21:22
Ben64then what is filter matching?21:23
Lorne2016Eric^^ http://termbin.comspml21:23
Lorne2016Eric^^ http://termbin.com/spml21:23
sebbohBen64: apt-cache show filter*|grep ^Package21:24
Ben64only 3/112 start with filter21:24
Ben64it doesn't work how you would expect21:25
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok, in the first terminal type apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau21:25
sebbohdo an apt-get purge filters filter filtergen21:25
EriC^^which package contains nvidiafb?21:25
EriC^^anyone know?21:25
sebbohBen64: it works how I would expect.  Aside from some of the strange dependencies in Ubuntu's package lists.21:26
Ben64why would you expect blah* to match something not starting with blah21:26
sebbohEricC^^ would apt-file(1) help you?21:26
Ben640 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.21:26
Ben64again, not dependencies21:26
Lorne2016Eric^^ ok done.21:27
sebbohBen64, I'll look into this.21:27
Ben64i've seen a number of people here that have borked their system from a command like that21:27
streulmaHello my screen rotation on my tablet is nearly perfect. But on startup it is rotated in the wrong way, also wen rotating screen. Is there an indicator which I can solve with?21:28
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok, try rebooting21:28
Lorne2016Eric^^ take out the thumb drive??21:28
streulmaI mean this on Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.121:28
EriC^^Lorne2016: yup, type exit in the chroot, then type sudo reboot and when it shuts off remove the thumb drive21:29
sebbohBen64, I did get similar results to what you describe when I do apt-get purge cups*21:29
sebbohBen64: but all the packages to be removed are printer related.  I think I already removed the ubuntu-desktop metapackage.21:30
sebbohBen64: I completely understand exactly what weirdness you are talking about, but I do not think it is caused by broken wild-card matching.  I think the problem is the very odd dependencies around package ubuntu-desktop and friends.21:31
Ben64it isn't21:31
Lorne2016Eric^^  nope.  sorry :(   Same story... login screen looked fine... then, "System Problem Detected"...then black screen21:32
Ben64sebboh: try purging fred*21:32
Lorne2016Eric^^   (sorry... meaning , login screen looked good...I typed my password...saw error message...black screen for 60 secs....now back on login screen)21:33
streulmaLorne2016 that seems to be a video driver problem21:33
EriC^^Lorne2016: can you get grub if you hold shift?21:34
sebbohBen64, ok, you win.  `apt-cache show fred*|grep ^Package` returns non-sense results.21:34
Ben64sebboh: :)21:34
Lorne2016Eric^^ during bootup right?   (I couldn't before...but I could get to it from the thumbdrive boot....)   I'll try again now21:35
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok21:35
Lorne2016streulma :  Yes - Nvidia... I actually have the driver file thingy on hard drive...21:35
Lorne2016Eric^^  ok - nothing happened holding shift... and ctrl-alt-F1 just sent the screen black also...21:38
jhutchinsLorne2016: Actually, if you're getting the GUI Greeter (login screen) your video is working.21:38
jhutchinsLorne2016: It sounds a lot like you might have run a GUI app as root and messed up some permissions in $HOME.21:38
jhutchinsLorne2016: You could test it by creating a different user (in a console) and logging in as that user.21:39
Lorne2016jhutchins - OK .... can you walk me thru that?21:39
jhutchinssudo useradd user && sudo passwd user21:39
SynfulAckIs there a general command to show graphics hardware for bug reports? Not sure if they wanted more info than a model.21:40
Lorne2016jhutchins ...I have a guest user...but that also gives me the same black screen...21:40
SynfulAckall i could think of was lspci21:40
sebbohBen64, oh, apt uses regular expressions!  Perhaps with some additional mangling...?  Or, hm, I guess I could have been feeding apt and friends invalid queries that just happened to also be valid enough to return what I was actually looking for... for all these years?  It boggles the mind.  See, I know regular expressions. :P21:40
pavlosSynfulAck, sudo lshw -C display21:41
Lorne2016jhutchins but how do I get to a cmd screen?   (before I booted from a thumbdrive into a "try ubuntu" environment.. you want me to do that?)21:41
Ben64sebboh: the moral of the story is.. "don't hit ok before you read"21:42
jhutchinsLorne2016: Ctrl-Alt-F121:42
EriC^^Lorne2016: try disabling fastboot in the bios, you might get grub when you hold shift21:42
SynfulAckpavlos, haha nice this is indepth, thx.21:42
Lorne2016Eric^^ ok - will do...21:43
pavlosSynfulAck, there is also an inxi command (you may have to install it) that gives hw info21:43
Lorne2016jhutchins atrl alt F1 just blacks the screen too21:43
jhutchinsLorne2016: Hit a key, see if it comes up.21:44
sebbohok apt-cache surely does some additional mangling...  Ben64, not just that... I have almost 20 years of experience at the command line and I'm looking at these results and them make little sense to me.  for i in bash bash* bas bas.* bash.* bash.+; do echo Now trying $i ...; apt-cache show $i|grep ^Package; done21:45
jhutchinsLorne2016: The gui is at the login screen, right?21:45
sebbohSee there's obviously some mode-switching going on...  apt-cache sees the * without a . and interprets it under different rules than if I use * with a .21:45
Lorne2016jhutchins yeah - the logins screen has a nice pic...and the mouse... yeah...21:45
Ben64sebboh: i knew the reason before, can't recall right now, at work21:46
sebbohBen64 ^^21:46
jhutchinsLorne2016: But no console 1?21:46
ubottuIf your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode21:46
Ben64work makes my brain not work good21:46
jhutchinsLorne2016: You could try that.21:46
egonsenhow can i find out how a specific binary of my ubuntu installation was compiled? in my case i want to know this for /usr/bin/qtchooser because there must be a #define in the source code which is not included in the standard cpp file of this application21:48
sebbohegonsen: you may be interested in the command `apt-get source <package>` (N.B. this writes to the current directory!!) and the apt-get build-deb <package> command.21:51
Lorne2016jhutchins its still not working... I get no response with holding shit (it just goes onto regular login screen)21:53
Lorne2016EriC^^ apparently Fastboot was already disabled...21:53
Lorne2016EriC^^  I'm thinking I wanna go back to banging on 16.10 and seeing if that fixes it....?21:54
jasondockersis there an equivalent package of ia32-libs for ubuntu 14.04?21:54
jasondockersi need to run a 32 bit program on 64 bit ubuntu 14.0421:55
Lorne2016Eric^^   but if i do that - do I need to edit the command line to add nomodeset to it???21:56
jasondockersnever mind, I'll just add an old ubuntu release to sources.list.d with ia32-libs21:57
tgm4883jasondockers: wow that seems like a bad idea. Why not just install the libs you need?21:59
jasondockerstgm4883, too late21:59
jasondockersi'll just remove it from list when I'm done22:00
tgm4883jasondockers: ok, well make sure to preface any questions you have here with what you've done22:00
OverCoderHello everyone22:03
OverCoderI have two internet connections, both wireless ones, how do I go by load-balancing them?22:03
OverCoderRound Robin or something22:03
tgm4883OverCoder: you have 2 wireless NICs?22:04
EriC^^Lorne2016: yeah i guess so22:04
Lorne2016Eric^^   ...I'm going ahead with it....22:05
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok22:06
jasondockerstgm4883, that's what vm backups are for :)22:09
Lorne2016Eric^^   Ok the installer crashed because the GRUB bootloader wouldn't copy ....22:09
tgm4883jasondockers: I'd be surprised if you had good backups22:10
jasondockerstgm4883, gee, thanks.22:10
jasondockerstgm4883, why?22:10
tgm4883jasondockers: well TBH, most people that come in here looking for help don't have any backups22:11
LoshkiOverCoder: check out bonding. I don't know if it works with wifi, though. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBonding22:11
Exterminadorhello guys! just a noob question: can i install Xubuntu 64bits in dual boot with windows 10 32 bits? :x22:12
jasondockerstgm4883, last week I accidentally changed ownership of the entire filesystem to a non-root user. so, low expectations are reasonable.22:13
LoshkiExterminador: yes, as long as the processor itself supports 64 bit, you can run any 32-bit or 64-bit OS on it22:13
ExterminadorLoshki, grub wont mess up with windows? as i have windows 10 32 bits22:14
LoshkiExterminador: if you install windows first, then install *buntu, grub will recognize and allow you to boot into windows or linux.22:15
Exterminadoryes, windows is installed.. and xubuntu 32bits also. but stremio have support only for 64bits22:16
Exterminadorthat's why i wanna install Xubuntu 64bits22:16
LoshkiExterminador: you need to check if your cpu will handle 64 bits. "uname -a" should tell.22:18
OverCoderLoshki: no config provided for wifi22:18
OverCoderand I'm not a very geeky linuxer either :P22:18
ExterminadorLoshki, brb and will tell u22:19
jasondockerslscpu will get you even more relevant info?22:19
Ramonehey there... anyone know how to update chromium?  it always seems to update, but also always shows the same old version in chrome://help .  Can anyone throw me a clue?22:20
EriC^^Lorne2016: try with nomodeset + try ubuntu22:21
Lorne2016Eric^^  not sure what you mean22:21
EriC^^like you did before22:22
Lorne2016EriC^^   I (e)dited the install command to add nomodeset...and that got the installation going...but it failed halfway thru.... are you saying I should edit with "nomodeset + try ubuntu"...?22:23
Lorne2016Eric^^ or are you suggesting I try to fix the system by using the "try' option?22:23
Bashing-om!info chromium-browser xenial | Ramone22:25
ubottuRamone: chromium-browser (source: chromium-browser): Chromium web browser, open-source version of Chrome. In component universe, is optional. Version 53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0. (xenial), package size 60333 kB, installed size 230375 kB22:25
LoshkiRamone: what happens when you do "sudo apt-get upgrade chromium-browser"?22:26
Ramoneoh maybe I do have the latest in the repo22:26
Ramonepretty sure it's on 55.x.x though22:27
EriC^^Lorne2016: oh22:32
ExterminadorLoshki, "uname -a" and lscpu output: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23600557/22:33
EriC^^Lorne2016: try nomodeset with the try ubuntu option22:33
EriC^^then you can install grub manually, did it mention why it failed at all?22:33
Exterminadorso, i guess i can install Xubuntu 64bits.. as long as that dont mess up with booting 32bits Windows 10. :x22:34
Lorne2016Eric^^  something about failing to copy... I'm trying again...22:35
LoshkiExterminador: that's a T4300 pentium. It definitely supports 64-bit. You might consider upgrading your 32-bit distros. It should run Xubuntu easily, and grub should handle all 3 oses gracefully. And if not, that's why we have backups.22:36
Lorne2016Eric^^ just failed again... the 'grub-efi-amd64-signed' package failed to install onto /target/22:36
ExterminadorLoshki, so the best is to format the laptop and install Windows 64bits and Xubuntu 64bits also. but i can also keep Windows 32bits and install Xubuntu 64bits. am i correct? :D22:40
EriC^^Lorne2016: can you press the left arrow? it expands a terminal below the installer22:40
Lorne2016Eric^^ lol...sorry...I'm WAY beyond that now!   Now I'm burking my system in ungodly ways....22:41
Lorne2016Eric^^  ...currently working on making a new installer drive...to go back to 16.04....22:42
LoshkiExterminador: correct. Also, there's nothing to stop you installing Xubuntu 64bit, and then deciding to upgrade the other distros to 64 bit at some later date, at your leisure.22:42
Lorne2016eric^^  my system looks fried...I think I lost everything22:42
JaBaZIs this right place to ask about Ubuntu Snappy Core for Rpi 2?22:42
EriC^^Lorne2016: no worries22:42
EriC^^Lorne2016: boot the live usb with nomodeset and try ubuntu22:42
Lorne2016EriC^^  I'm on the verge of tearing out the NVIDIA card altogether and dropkicking the whole box across the room22:43
EriC^^Lorne2016: it'll be ok22:43
ExterminadorLoshki, right then. any tool you recommend to create a bootable usb stick on Xubuntu? on Windows i use Rufus..22:43
Bashing-om!snappy | JaBaZ Maybe better response here :22:43
ubottuJaBaZ Maybe better response here :: Ubuntu Core is a rendition of Ubuntu with transactional updates using "snappy". For discussion and support, please visit #snappy and see http://www.ubuntu.com/snappy/22:43
EriC^^Lorne2016: i've borked mine as well while installing22:44
Lorne2016Eric^^  I only just learned the word 'bork' today...and I'm already using it firsthand... :(22:44
EriC^^Lorne2016: heh :D22:44
Exterminadorwhat's that?! :x22:45
JaBaZOkay, thanks!22:45
LoshkiExterminador: you can download the xubuntu iso from the website. the CD-image(iso) file can be use to create bootable USBs or boot-CDs. To make a bootable USB, use the "startup disk creator".22:46
Lorne2016Eric^^   while we're waiting ... wanted to let yo uknow I have the NVIDIA driver (installation exe thing) on my home dir somewhere...in the past, when it gave me isues, I could re-run it and that would fix it22:46
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok22:47
ExterminadorLoshki, thanks a lot! :D i'll try it later and i'll give some feedback22:47
Exterminadorbtw, how can i check if my hdd is fine or starting to die? any cmd?22:51
Lorne2016EriC^^  ok - so I made a startup disk for 14.01.1 - and it booted right into the original login (orange) screen...so I ctrl-alt-F1 - and its asking for login credentials22:52
Lorne2016Eric^^  and my regular ones aren't working22:52
pavlosExterminador, if you install smartmontools, there is command, smartctl /dev/hdd to give you info22:53
EriC^^Lorne2016: ok, try logging into the gui with the user ubuntu22:53
EriC^^without a password22:53
Lorne2016Eric^^  ok... rebooting again....22:54
pavlosExterminador, sample output ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/23600635/22:56
Exterminadorand what are the main things i should look at? to see if it's working fine?22:59
Lorne2016Eric^^   Ok - for some reason it was having trouble booting with the boot disc in... so I took it out and tried again... then (for the first time) I saw the Grub screen!!! With Advanced Options an the other thing...22:59
Lorne2016Eric^^  ...I wanted to tell you about it...so I didn't choose any options and now the screen has turned off23:00
