designbybeckChromecast on Ubuntu 16.04? Which one, if any, works for streaming your whole desktop to a TV? I thought I saw that was possible on Linux?00:51
puffinzAny Chrome browsers does full remote desktop emulation... which is a blessing or a curse.00:52
designbybeckso gen1 and gen 2 puffinz?00:52
designbybeckfor the Chromecast Device itself puffinz?00:53
puffinzIt all depends what you want to use your chromecast for00:53
c-pinreisio, yeah00:53
puffinzPersonally id by a SoC device and install whatever you want00:54
c-pinsolus is still booting, xubuntu doesnt like it or sometnhing00:54
designbybeckpuffinz: well mostly watching youtube anyway, but some Kodi? would that display?00:54
c-pinthe leds flash but it boots directly to solus at lowest prioritp00:54
MisterPizzaguys u know how make it work sopcast for ubuntu?00:54
reisioc-pin: if you have /boot/grub, you can just tell grub to boot an install image directly00:55
designbybecklike a RaspberryPi as a SoC puffinz and just control it that way? We are using a laptop and a bukly HDMI cable ,but it is doing damage to the HDMI port on this laptop00:55
c-pinreisio, mmm thats a good idea00:55
c-pinthe fact that it WONT boot though is what scares me00:55
c-pinbecause that prcobably means its not compatible with my system00:55

MisterPizzai remake question, u know how see sports event live streaming with good quality?00:55
puffinzYeah, theres lots of neat multimedia devices out there.... chromecast is nice. its cheap.00:56
reisiowhether the usb stick is good, whether the image is good, whether you're copying it right, whether your bios/etc. is configured properly, whether your usb ports are sound/normal, etc., etc.00:56

Knemonhow can I redirect an http request from port 80 to another one for a specific domain on my local machine?02:06
smokeyjOk, been running Redhat/fedora since dawn of time. Just installed Ubuntu on server that I built from scrap. I dont hate it. So whats the trade off?02:11
smokeyjWhere is the nasty little problem?02:11
wedgieKnemon: sounds like you want a reverse proxy perhaps.02:12
wedgieKnemon: can you give a more specific example of what you want to do?02:12
Knemonwedgie, I am developing an app locally - so I created a local domain localhost.dev that binds to my app is on http://localhost.dev:3000. What I want is this: type http://localhost.dev and redirect me on port 300002:14
wedgieKnemon: and only 1 app? For example you'll never want to go to http://app2.localhost.dev and get redirected to port 4000?02:15
wedgieif not, then this will probably be useful: http://askubuntu.com/questions/444729/redirect-port-80-to-8080-and-make-it-work-on-local-machine   If you DO need to have more than one app being sent to different ports then you may want to look into a reverse proxy. Nginx can do that sort of thing02:16
Ben64better way would be to put it on port 80, or just type blah:400002:17
Knemonwedgie, I am running a custom httpd02:17
wedgieKnemon: shouldn't matter. Reverse proxy would go in front of that02:17
KnemonI am not quite sure how to implement the reverse proxy. I will look into it too02:18
wedgieit'll take some reading but it isn't too terrible02:18
Ben64so make it simpler and just type the proper port, or change the port to 8002:18
wedgieKnemon: and if it's a one-off you can just use a iptables rule like in the link i sent you02:19
Knemoniptables is more appealing but the Nginx solution seems solid02:21
wedgieiptables is definitely the faster/easier solution. But a reverse proxy will be more robust if you need to have several different applications, all available from port 8002:22
maddawg2reverese proxy is what i use02:23
maddawg2easy peazy02:24
maddawg2can even give it a nice url rewrite if needed02:24
ghostcartpiHey folks. Does anyone have experience with ubuntu on raspberry pi?02:32
ghostcartpiI'm attempting to install mudlet and having poor luck.02:33
tomreynghostcartpi: how does it fail?02:39
tomreyni'm not sure which architecture raspi is. if it's armhf this would be why the package is not available. it is available for arm64, though.02:41
ghostcartpithe odd thing is that it's available on the raspbian repo02:42

ghostcartpihere I02:42
ghostcartpiI'll get the exact message02:43
ghostcartpiPackage mudlet is not available, but is referred to by another package.02:46

avoiderbooting anything04:19
avoiderso it is!04:19
Ben64avoider: as you were told many many many many many times already, booting a usb has nothing to do with anything on your hard drive04:19
avoiderThen why cant i boot any os?04:19
Ben64because you're doing something incorrectly04:20
avoiderSo the tools in "software" and the "dd" command are trash then? you saying04:20
ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/04:20

avoiderThere is not much wrong to do when writing a bootable image to a usb mate.04:21
Ben64i'm just telling you the facts, grub and anything else on a hard drive will have zero effect on booting a usb04:21
avoiderStop acting like its a big thing04:21
avoiderSo tell me what app should i use?04:21
cfhowlettsuggest you dial back the attitude there, amigo04:21
Sellerieokay.. i'm having a problem with tb... i can't find a way to set up a correctly working "reply with template" filter.. can any1 help me?04:21
Ben64when the computer boots, it boots from a device, either usb, cd, dvd, network, hard drive, etc04:21
Ben64one does not affect the other in any way04:21
cfhowlettSellerie, create the template and save it to templates.04:21
avoiderBen64: here me out for a second.04:22
Selleriewait, how do you write with those green colors? sorry for being such a newb04:22
avoiderBen64: before i put linuc on here i can reinstall several diffrent os no issue never got a problem in my life04:22
Ben64no, you're so sure you know the problem, and you don't. it's blinding you to the actual problem04:22
avoiderUntil i put ubuntu on here.04:22
avoiderNone of you guys could solve it for two days now?04:22
cfhowlettSellerie, depends entirely on your chat client settings.  if you are in hexchat, it's a simple setting04:22
Sellerieya it's hexchat04:23
avoiderOnly smart person who made logic was eric^^04:23
Ben64!xy | avoider04:23
ubottuavoider: The XY problem is when you need to do X, and you think you can use Y to do X, so you ask about how to do Y, when what you really should do is state what your X problem is. There may be a Z solution that is even better than Y, but nobody can suggest it if X is never mentioned.04:23
cfhowlettSellerie, wait 104:23
avoiderMy problem is how to get rid of this trash ubuntu?04:23
avoiderThat is X04:23
Ben64avoider: yes, ask in ##windows04:23
avoiderI had Fed boxes and Debian boxes never had this issue.04:24
cfhowlettSellerie, hexchat > settings > interface > appearance > text box > colored nick names04:24
avoiderOnly with this crap04:24
avoiderI have a machine with Fedora right next to me that if i turn if off and put my usb with windows on it... it will go boot the usb04:24
cfhowlettSellerie, and now you should see colored nicks04:24
avoiderUbuntu is not allowing me to do this.04:24
Ben64avoider: then you're not booting it properly in your computer, still not ubuntu04:25
avoiderYou press f12 and choose usb ?04:25
Sellerieyeah now i see colored nicks, but i'm not writing green like you lol04:25
avoiderWhat is the trick im missing?04:25
avoiderI never messed with my bios04:25
avoiderso what changed ?04:25
Ben64avoider: not an ubuntu issue04:25
avoidernone of you can explain it04:25
cfhowlettSellerie, that would be your settings > interface > colors04:26
cfhowlettif color stripping = on = no colors04:26
avoiderBen64, unless you have a soultion to the problem04:26
Ben64jesus christ04:26
avoiderI dont think you know, since you say the same thing.04:26
avoiderStop talking about "ubuntu" and how its not the issue.04:27
avoiderWhy dont we start talking about what the issue is?04:27
Ben64ok in the right channel though04:27
avoiderSince you so certin its not ubuntu or grub04:27
avoiderGrub screws everything up04:27
avoiderand takes over shit04:27
avoiderthats why they dont sell ubuntu pre loaded in major stores because the support is garbo and people just say "oh its not our problem"04:28
Ben64this is amazing, you're so dense you should have collapsed into a black hole a long time ago04:29
avoiderWhy calling names to me?04:29
Ben64ask in the right channel and maybe you can get help04:29
* cfhowlett was more grateful for the hexchat /ignore function ...04:29
Selleriewell whatever man... couldn't do it... coming back to the main issue, i already have some templates, and the "reply with template" option is visible, but it doesn't work04:29
avoiderWhy dont you join efnet so i can make ur host collapse into a black hole?04:29
avoiderwith ur sweet mouth04:29
cfhowlettSellerie, let me replicate ... wait 104:29
cfhowlettSellerie, did you save your template to /Templates?04:31
Sellerieat least i can see the templates in the "templates" folder04:31
Selleriei don't know if they are in some folder in my hard drive though04:32
cfhowlettSellerie, wait.  /Templates is a thunderbird folder NOT the ubuntu /Templates04:33

Ben64no_gravity: you can use "sudo apt-get autoremove"08:21
no_gravityBen64: That will remove all unused kernels?08:22
Ben64no_gravity: most of them, it keeps a couple08:22
no_gravityUh oh, "apt-get purge linux-image-4.4.0-21-generic" seems to fiddle with the boot menu... let's see if the machine still boots...08:23
satinderHi, i am using ubuntu 16.04 and on my system php7 is not working in the browser08:23
no_gravitysatinder: php7 is not intended to run in the browser.08:24

Ben64satinder: depends what you're trying to do08:25

no_gravitysatinder: I would use the php version that is in the repos.08:25

no_gravityPhew, it still boots.08:27
no_gravityHa, the "apt-get purge" fails because it tries to build a new initrd but there is not enough space left on /boot/08:31

hheeBen64, system requirements, like memory and so on08:40

hheeno_gravity, got it08:41
Ben64hhee: they're all fairly similar, depends what you want to do though08:41
no_gravityhhee: It's nicely suited for VMs because it has almost zero gui. But it might be be *too* slim depending on what you intend to do.08:41
no_gravityhhee: I use debian+openbox+chrome if I want a machine to simply use a browsers.08:42

lplatypusHi, how do I start pulseaudio as a system-wide daemon in Ubuntu 16.04?  It seems to have changed from 14.04 where I had this working following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiseatX#Pulseaudio11:22
discoveredAnyone using kde wallet manager?11:39
OerHeksdiscovered, you might want to ask your real question.11:41
discoveredI am trying to use kdewallet manager to store all password(First time using a password manger though). Does it automatically save the password to the wallet or i need to save automatically. The password is always empty even if i am login to any website11:45
lplatypusto answer my own question about running pulseaudio as a system daemon following upgrade to 16.04: I got it working by (1) restoring the upstart config for this daemon that was removed in the upgrade (cd /etc/init && cp pulseaudio.conf.dpkg-bak pulseaudio.conf), and (2) changing boot to use upstart rather than systemd11:53

BloqueNegrocan somebody help me on that?12:07
tomreynBloqueNegro: there are three approaches you can take: (1) try whether it works on ubunt 16.04 lts, and if it does, install that instead. (2) filing a bug report as per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems and hope this will lead to someone triaging it and adding information or developing a patch which will fix it (can take a while), (3) try debugging and fixing or working around it yourself with the help of https://help.ubuntu.com/commu12:13
tomreynnity/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure - reading up on https://www.alsa-project.org/ and maybe with some help of the folks in #alsa12:13
tomreyn(4) use a less complex and less proprietary technique for audio output.12:14
BloqueNegrotomreyn, so i should probably go back to 1604?12:18

e8newallmHi, I'm on lubuntu, and the network manager has my wired connection is listed as not managed, even though I changed NetworkManager.conf to managed=true and removed everything from the interfaces file. What else can I do?12:38
bekkse8newallm: Did you remove literally everything?If so, it wont work :)12:40
e8newallmYeah I think so12:41
e8newallmDo I need to delete the interfaces file entirely?12:41
bekkse8newallm: No. you need several ebtries in there.12:41
e8newallm"auto lo\r\n iface lo inet loopback"12:41
e8newallmThat's all that's in it12:41
bekksSo you didnt remove everything ;)12:42
e8newallmOk removed everything, reset network manager, still no :P12:42
e8newallminterfaces is a blank file12:42
bekksYou NEED those two lines.12:43
bekksIf you removed them NM will not work.12:43
bekksThats what I said above, too.12:43
e8newallmOk fair enough12:44
e8newallmIs there anything else I would need to change?12:44
e8newallmI can find literally nothing on this that doesn't say to change those two things :P12:44
e8newallmI've had ethernet working before, but network manager said I was disconnected from the internet when that was the case12:45
bekksAnd what did you change since then, so NM started to behave differently?12:46
e8newallmIt wasn't working then12:46
e8newallmIt still said the same thing12:46
e8newallmBut I was still connected through ethernet, but it said ethernet wasn't managed and that I was disconnected still12:46
bekksSo did it ever work?12:47
e8newallmWell network manager said I was disconnected but I was still able to use websites12:48
e8newallmI think I had configured the ethernet through interfaces then though12:48
e8newallmTo check if ethernet would work at all12:49
bekksDid it ever work - yes or no? :P12:49
e8newallmIt has always said ethernet not managed since I first installed Lubuntu12:49
e8newallmBut ethernet has worked when manually configured using the interfaces file12:49
bekksAnd why are you concerned about it now?12:49
e8newallmBecause I only recently installed Lubuntu :P12:50
e8newallmIt was fine when it was still Windows, but when I put Lubuntu on, I had this problem right away12:50
bekksWindows uses totally different mechanism and thus is totally out of interest at this point.12:52
e8newallmWell yeah12:52
saramadridmay i ask something here or do i have to look for someone specific?12:59
bekkssaramadrid: Depends on wether you have a specific ubuntu support issue or not.12:59
saramadridI have something i can't figure out how to configure properly on ubuntu 16.04 but it is network related...13:00
bekkssaramadrid: So just ask your question then-13:00
saramadridi have 2 network interfaces13:00
saramadridfor reasons not worth mentioning here, both interfaces are connected to different networks, but both networks have the same ip range13:01
saramadridso, i need interface 1 to be the default13:01
bekkssaramadrid: So configure your default route using interface 1.13:02
saramadridbut, no matter what i try with network manager, it insists on having network 2 as default13:02
bekksConfigure your network manually, not using NM.13:02
saramadridi thought about that, but i wanted to figure out how to do it without doing surgery13:03
nlynxguys, hi. how can i find directory in midnight commander? i tried command->find file>unchecked "ignore directory", wrote directory name, but nothing was found13:03
saramadriddoing it manually seems like not solving the problem, more like avoiding it13:04
saramadridi could also swap the ethernet cables, but i'd like to know how to solve this... this is my last time trying to move to linux for my desktop and i really want to make things work without modifying my installation too much13:06
saramadridnlynx, does it have to be done with midnight commander?13:06
stefgsaramadrid: since both networks seem to be how should a poor stupid tcp packet know which way to turn... i'd say that everything hinges on the default gateway13:10
stefgsaramadrid: if you have a chance i'd try to fix this network setup.... you'll run into trouble sooner or later13:11
saramadridstefg, i know, but what i want is to use lan1 for everything, and lan2 just for access one server on that lan13:11
saramadridin fact, its working perfectly now, its just that i cant swap the default interface13:11
stefgAll fine, but why cant you just use for one of the two nets?13:11
saramadridfor some reason, there is no way i can see to select lan1 as default13:11
saramadridboth networks are independent, but they are a replica that allows redundancy for some servers13:12
saramadridi cant really explain everything, but it's the way it is13:12
saramadridi can't change it13:12
stefgi see.. i think network manager isn't designed to handle such a ... err, special... setup. how about only using your desired default interface from network manager and bringing up the other with a little script. Would be a way to force things the way you want them13:14
bekksOr configuring them without using NM at all.13:15
bekksBoth of them.13:15
bekkssaramadrid: Kill whoever setup that crap. Implement trunking on your switches and uses redundant cabling. Done.13:16
stefgbekks: ^^^This!^^^13:16
stefgsaramadrid: Thinking over it it might be timing related... whoever claims first gets it. It might be the wrong net, that's always faster. An idea might be to look into udev rules. But i doubt you can solve such a faulty sitaution "without" surgery". I even doubt, windows wouldn't complain (no idea...)13:25
saramadridstefg, sorry for being away... actually in windows is pretty easy, it respects the metric of the interfaces13:34
saramadridbekks, i can't actually kill him, actually he's my boyfriend :) and i don't really know why but it is well designed and implemented. anyway that's out of the scope of my question, i just thought that since it was something so trivial in windows, i thought it would as easier on network manager, but it isnt13:38
bekkssaramadrid: Him being your boyfriend means you can get much closer to him :>13:41
saramadridindeed, but he gives me much worst motives to kill him and i've not done it yet :) sounds silly to do it because of this :P13:42

stefgsaramadrid: so the least thing you can expect then is that he fixes his own mess and do the (quite manageable) surgery by writing a proper /etc/network/interfaces for you ;-)13:45
saramadridxD actually someone pointed me to the fix right now... it seems the gui of network manager can't set metrics at the moment, but the nmcli utility can13:47
saramadridi'm going to try it now... see if it works13:47

SAKUJ0sorry i am new to ubuntu and used to more minimal distros. what would be the minimal way of installing a gnome shell?14:23
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD14:24
OerHeksSAKUJ0, with --no-install-recommends perhaps? why more minimal?14:25
OerHeksyou might save 1 gb diskspace14:25
SAKUJ0because i dont need firefox or a cd burning utiliy etc14:25
MonkeyDustSAKUJ0  then the !mini installation is what you want, i guess14:29

SAKUJ0i already have a minimal system right now14:29

OerHekssudo apt install gnome-desktop --no-install-recommends14:29
OerHeksmight give you firefox anyway ..14:30
SAKUJ0i don't think it would14:30
SAKUJ0(as it is under "Recommends: ")14:30
SAKUJ0it still depends on packages such as 'brasero' etc. though14:31

darkdreamingdanthanks - without trying to sound like a fool, what does that actually mean? That it takes over windows' default bootloader?14:35
OerHeksno, grub will load first.14:37
darkdreamingdanAnd if i stop using ubuntu and remove the partition, what's left of my bootloader compared to before?14:39
OerHeksIf you remove ubuntu, use your windows iso to repair the mbr.14:39
OerHeksnothing much will be changed, just the pointer to the bootloader.14:39

odfhw5bv9sHi all. After I have installed cpufreq I expirience freezes.15:53
Sean_McGthat sounds like a hardware issue15:53
odfhw5bv9svery large ones - more than 5 seconds15:53
odfhw5bv9sWhen  I used windows there was no such an issue15:54
Sean_McGwindows doesn't have cpufreq15:54
odfhw5bv9sYes, they have its analogue15:54
OerHekscpufreq is nice to underclock, but not really usefull15:54
odfhw5bv9sIt's true. The windows implementation allowed lots of frequencies, cpufreq allows only one15:55
odfhw5bv9sAvailable frequency steps: 2.40 GHz, 1.60 GHz15:56
odfhw5bv9sWhen I used windows I often saw the frequencies inside the interval15:57

OerHeksYou can use clamscan with the option --remove to automatically remove all infected file in the scanned folder. WARNING: Files are gone.16:20
willsketchupworkthis is the command i used: clamscan --remove=yes -i -r ~/    so i guess the virus should be gone. Right?16:23

Amm0nsolars, if i "du --exlude=.gconf" it skips .gconf16:44
willsketchupworkalright thanks i will reboot see if that changes anything and commence with the deletion of the wine directory. it would be nice if i coud use a VM but virtualization is not enabled in BIOS. it certainly would be better to delete an infected vm rather than having the whole system infected. the safest route would be to reinstall the os but i set a bios password and forgot it. i may be able to work around that though by taki16:45

saramadridthis may not be specifically software related, but do you happen to know if there exists in europe something similar to System76 notebooks/desktops?19:57
syrothWillsketchupwork: okay. kdb and mouse drivers are contained inside of something called xorg which runs the GUI essentially. We could try reinstalling that but that would require an external USB keyboard to be functional as you wont retain the on-screen during that process. I also concur with OerHeks.. your system is too new for the battery trick. ( most likely )19:58

stonedhow do I connect a laptop and desktop together w/o a router21:21
stonedjust one ethernet cable21:21
stonedany idea?21:21
stonedwhat kind of networking is that?21:21
dwagostoned: I have done long time ago with crossover cable. You don't need crossover cable anymore. newer eth cards do the crossover automatically21:25

reisioyeah, nobody has ever had a use for avahi ever :p22:09
jsubl2if avahi works out of the box with out complaining i can ignore it.  otherwise its history22:09
ghostx562general question, boot time on my laptop from power button to login screen is around 35 secs, is that normal?22:10
jsubl2ghostx562: sound reasonable and near what mine is.22:10
jsubl2tho i have not timed it22:10
reisioit works out of the box, it just doesn't do anything useful while working :p22:11
ghostx562just wondering, its a fresh install 16.04, i did change boot mode from UEFI to legacy. I wiped windows with it soon as it came out the box.22:11
ghostx562should i have left it on UEFI?22:12
reisioghostx562: if you don't like boot time, stop rebooting22:12
jsubl2ghostx562: that is what i did22:12
saramadrid(re-asking) this may not be specifically software related, but do you happen to know if there exists in europe something similar to System76 notebooks/desktops?22:12
reisioI doubt non-"legacy" mode will boot any faster22:12
jsubl2saramadrid: check out https://system76.com/shipping22:13
dwago /quit22:13
jsubl2yeah when i am done i close the lid22:14
ghostx562That secure boot and intel rapid thing should those be off as well22:14
jsubl2rarely reboot22:14
reisiousing a SSD over a spinner is going to do more than anything else, short of not rebooting (which you don't have to do)22:14
saramadridjsubl2, i know they ship here, but shipping costs + import taxes makes it pretty expensive, also, i'd like to have support available on my same time zone (if possible)22:15
saramadridthanks anyway jsubl2 :)22:15
jsubl2ok, saramadrid sorry i couldn't help22:15
ghostx562reisio, sweet thanks for the info, might have to look and invest in one :)22:16
reisioghostx562: they're really affordable at capacities required for an OS (32GB or so)22:16
jsubl2yeah i wish i would have got ssd with my last lappie22:16
jsubl2but... dont want to spend the cash now22:16
reisioghostx562: and fairly affordable at capacities you don't really need (>=256GB)22:16
ghostx562i bought the laptop for a real good price, 250 intel i7, 12gb ram, 1tb hdd. 15.6 screen figured why not22:17
jsubl2sweet ghostx56222:18
ghostx562just got to reading all the stuff about UEFI and all that and just got to wondering if that affected boot time22:18

odfhw5bv9sHi all. I experience freezes. I have managed to reduce cpu consumption to ~2% but I still expirience freezes22:40
odfhw5bv9sI have also disabled power scaling (sudo cpufreq-set -g performance) but it doesn't help22:42
jsubl2odfhw5bv9s: look /var/log/Xorg.0.log for clues.. may have to check Xorg.0.log.old also.  if errs post to paste bin22:42
odfhw5bv9swill try22:43
odfhw5bv9sthank you22:43
odfhw5bv9sjsubl2: there is no (cat  /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i error )22:44
jsubl2does X come up at all odfhw5bv9s22:45
jsubl2try dmesg from console22:45
odfhw5bv9sThere is no errors in dmesg22:47
odfhw5bv9s(I used dmesg --level=err)22:47
jsubl2odfhw5bv9s: no idea22:48
jsubl2if it freezes you would hope for a clue somewhere22:48
odfhw5bv9sthank you anyway22:49

Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: SSD ? older hardware ? // I had freezes with a new SSD install . I discinnected my spinners,repinned bios to defaults, reset bios settings . and presently look'n good .22:52

NoImNotNineVolt(i'm using the ovmf virtual uefi firmware)22:54
NoImNotNineVoltwhen i boot to the ubuntu installer, i'm given a grub menu.22:54
NoImNotNineVoltif i'm not mistaken, that means it's trying to do a bios install22:54
NoImNotNineVolt(and indeed, after i run through the install, i can't uefi boot from the virtual disk it installed to)22:55
NoImNotNineVoltis there a way to for efi mode?22:56

odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: HDD. Core2Duo e6600.23:02
Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: So much then for that thought. What release are you running ? systemd where you can read the boot messages ?23:04
odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: I run Kubuntu 16.10.23:04
odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: and I have already checked system messages (do you mean dmesg?)23:05
Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: What the kernel sees when booting : ' journalctl -b -0 ' shows messages from the current boot .23:07
NoImNotNineVoltokay, so, nevermind. apparently grub supports efi boot...23:08

aroonimy mail.log is filling up like crazy  Oct  3 15:29:03 LilArooni nullmailer[2228]: Starting delivery: protocol: smtp host: mail file: 1474545903.11442 ... 5GB of this stuff;  is there a way to put the kibosh on nullmailer?23:29
blackflowarooni: maybe disable logging of mail.* in /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf23:33
blackflowarooni: but if you're on systemd Ubuntu, it'll fill up journal binlogs and you can't fix that.23:33
odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: journalctl -b -0 | grep -iP "error|warning|failed" > ~/logz.txt  -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/23610831/23:33
arooniblackflow: i'm using ubuntu 16.04 if that matters23:33
blackflowthose do rotate automagically so it won't break anything, just sayin' you can't fix that on journalctl.23:33
blackflowbut mail.log is written by rsyslog who gets entries from journald23:34
Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: reading23:34
arooniso if i disable taht in rsyslog i shouldnt see any more of those files in my /var/log/ ?23:35
arooniany more of these mail details23:35
=== georgeowell is now known as kawaiipunk
blackflowyes. but to disable it you need to redirect mail.* messages to dev null and prevent their further propagation. So pipe the mail.* line to /dev/null and put    & ~     on the next line23:38
Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: "password check failed for user (odfhw5bv9s)" I would think would cause all kinds of issues . But is way above my skills - systemd -to have any idea how to tackle this .23:39
odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: I don't think so, can it be because of my actions? When I was signing in PC I have entered a pass incorectly one time23:41
BenguitarThrowing a question out here, for any of you guys using Ubuntu on a Mac laptop (not in a VM), how did you get the internal keyboard, trackpad and wireless working?23:45
Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: Yeah highly likely of a pad password entered .. could be , this too " mkswap: 1: warning: wiping old swap signature." needs checking . compare ' sudo blkid ' to what ' cat /etc/fstab ' has set . Is this an encrypted file system ?23:46
diabolohi- has anyone upgraded to kernel 4.8  from 4.4in ubuntu 16.04 ?23:47
odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: don't know what is it. I don't use a swap partition, instead of it I use swapspace daemon23:49
odfhw5bv9sand I use lvm23:49
diaboloI'm getting a lot kernel errors when updating the system, need to know what to do to fix it23:49
diaboloany ideas anyone?23:50
Bashing-omodfhw5bv9s: And again . above my skill set .. no experience there either . But ya got to set the swap properly in /etc/fstab .23:50
Bashing-omdiabolo: Show the channel in a pastebin site ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' so we get an idea of what the errors are and mean .23:51
diabolook will do it in a sec23:52
odfhw5bv9sBashing-om: thank you anyway23:54
saramadridis there a lot of improvement from kernel 4.4 to 4.8? i've always thought it wasnt worth it to go away from the LTS kernel23:56
saramadridon servers i always respect that, but i'm new to the desktop linux experience23:57
SAKUJ0What happens if I install linux-image-extra-<VERSION> ? When I update my kernel, that package would be out of date?23:57
