The1whoEATSim a noob sorry00:06
The1whoEATSwhat is "/"00:06
CuteAlienDepends on context, but usually it means the root of your filesystem.00:06
CuteAlienYour filesystem has all kind of directories and sub-directories - and the root is jsut a /00:07
The1whoEATSi am following this guide : http://askubuntu.com/questions/293028/how-can-i-install-ubuntu-encrypted-with-luks-with-dual-boot00:07
The1whoEATSit says "Assign / to /dev/mapper/vgcherries-lvcherriesroot and /boot to the unencrypted partition"00:08
DeunomeThe1whoEATS: If so, it is the root directory00:08
The1whoEATSim on the manual partitioning part, i dont know how to assing it to something00:09
FrozenlockI just tried to set the limit to the group instead of the user, but it's the same problem. My service is still crashing with "too many open files".00:09
DeunomeYou'd use "/" as the mount point. Do a primary partition, and set it however big you want. Is there a reason you're doing manual partitioning, The1whoEATS?00:11
The1whoEATSi want full disk encryption alongside windows 1000:12

MarcoPThe1whoEATS, well with dual boot I don't know if there is a way to seperately do full encrypt on ubuntu and windows 10..if there is its probably kind of difficult00:13
The1whoEATSokay i think i got it00:13
CuteAlienMy question: Can I somehow check which software was updated the previous day? All my network connects stopped working but I don't know what might have changed.00:13

gnome-crashingI was using an edimax ew-7811un usb wifi adapter when with Ubuntu 16.04.1 and it initially kept dropping the wifi connection.  I finally got the adapter to connect long enough to do the updates, and it has not had that problem since.  However, since I had trouble with that adapter, when gnome crashed repeatedly I uninstalled the wifi adapter and just used the Ethernet instead, even though I do not see why they would be related01:29
gnome-crashingAre there known troubles with the Edimax EW-7811UN adapter with this version of Ubuntu?01:29
gnome-crashingI tried several different google searches but found nothing01:29
tomreyngnome-crashing: find its pci / usb id (using "lsusb -v" / "lspci -knnv" commands), and the driver you are using ("lsmod | grep -i wireless") and search the web for that.01:32
tomreyngnome should not be crashing due to wireless issues, however. this would rather hint on a separate issue.01:33
gnome-crashingtomreyn: yes, I did not see why they would be related, but I just tried it because of its previous troubles01:33
tomreynthe pci / usb id is usally listed in square brackets, looks like this: [1234:5678], it can also contain characters a-f01:34
gnome-crashingtomreyn:  ok, thanks - can I plug it in without disconnecting the ethernet so I will not use my connection, or will that cause problems since they will both be on the same lan?01:35

JohnDoe2Hi guys, I'm not sure what else to try, I cannot get a smb share to mount. I get error(5): input/output error if I try the mount command manually, and bad line # in /etc/fstab if I try it that way. I'm running 14.04, mount.cifs v 6.0. If I purposely type in the wrong password, however, it says Permission denied. So the sucker is connecting, but I can't find out what error 5 is. So cryptic.02:47
enycJohnDoe2: I'm not familiar with using that... but i do wonder if 'dmesg' gives any clues...02:51
greglJohnDoe2, What is it you are trying to share?02:51
JohnDoe2a folder on my mac, I had been using afp... something -ng but it has some serious memory leak, and the share fails within 12 hours. Now I'm trying to do it via SMB, and I was going to try ssh next.02:53
enycJohnDoe2: i've not involved ''macs'' but have had much success with 'sshfs' ...02:53
JohnDoe2enyc it's saying the same thing, -5 for the return code. and then some nss-myhostname is not installed, which I don't think is necessary since I'm accessing the share via ip directly.02:53

SValkyrieunallocated (it is), make sure it is a basic type (it is, according to microsoft).  I am a loss of how to proceed, any help is appreciated.05:07
cfhowlettSValkyrie, fire up a terminal and run     df -h | pastebinit            paste the output url here05:08
SValkyrieThe challenge we now face, is I must log off here in order to boot back into the Ubuntu DVD.  I am currently on the Win7 partition now.05:09

cfhowlettSValkyrie, of course.  use the "try ubuntu" option05:10

cfhowlettfor the record, your currently booted kernel SHOULD be the line 26 version.  in fact, reboot, at grub go to advanced options and select this version of ubuntu09:29

cfhowlettreboot  > grub > "select older ubuntu> or "advanced options" or similar.  you'll see a list of ubuntu options.  choose wisely09:34
cfhowlettout of curiousity, what version of ubuntu is this?09:34

dbuggerI just installed a new terminal (Hyper) but some characters are looking weird.

islandmonkeyHello there, I have an issue with some of my keyboard shortcuts suddenly not working properly09:41
alkisgdbugger: if I understand this correctly, they are using a custom font, probably from this package: fonts-powerline09:41
alkisgdbugger: so, apt install fonts-powerline, if that's the case09:41
dbuggerOk, let me see...09:42
dbuggerI will try it09:42
islandmonkeyI have a Lenovo Z500 laptop with Ubuntu 16.1009:42
tayler6000so you're gonna be mad at me, but 75 wasnt an option09:43
tayler6000just 34 and every version before that.09:43
cfhowletti aint mad, tayler600009:43
tayler6000^^' thats good09:43
dbuggeralkisg, do I need to restart after installing the fonts?09:43
alkisgdbugger: normally restarting the app is enough09:43
cfhowlettlet's do some things.  sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get purge09:44
cfhowlettnote && not &09:44
tayler6000well I did clean and autoclean earlier trying to fix my problem but ill do them all again.09:44
cfhowlettcopy pasts the above09:44
dbuggeralkisg, I will set the app font to "Ubuntu Mono" which seems the name of the powerline font09:45
tayler6000E: unmet09:45
cfhowlettdern, tayler6000 ok.  df -h | pastebinit09:45
dbuggeralkisg, no... it did not work..09:45
alkisgdbugger:  http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/all/fonts-powerline/filelist says that the name of the font is powerlinessymbols09:46
alkisgUbuntu mono is not a patched font, it's a normal font09:46

madwizardiptable: Yo!09:46
madwizardiptable: Same nick, too09:47
alkisgdbugger:  Why does your shell or terminal use patched glyphs anyway? Maybe you should consider using a proper terminal or shell or configuration, that doesn't need customized glyphs09:47
tayler6000I see it09:47
usr0shvMaybe later.09:47

alkisgdbugger: there are normal unicode characters for that, no need for custom glyphs...09:48
dbuggeralkisg, I know... is just a theme i downloaded09:48
alkisgtayler6000: another thing to try is to delete all the /boot/initrd* that you're not using09:48
alkisgtayler6000: in order to free space for the packages to be able to be removed/added in /boot09:49
tayler6000cfhowlett do you agree with alkisg?09:49
cfhowletttayler6000, sounds legit.  u09:49

tayler6000alkisg cfhowlett it already was mounted on boot as 9384e670-bc99-4585-a329-01bddbbd68bf09:59
alkisgcfhowlett: it seems ok, although I would do it directly from the booted system09:59
cfhowlettalkisg, we tried.  no go.09:59
alkisgtayler6000: I can help with vnc if you like, so that we solve it in 2 mins... i.e. share your screen with me09:59
tayler6000that would be a negative alkisg10:00
alkisgtayler6000: from the live cd it'll be a bit harder, because you have different /boot and /10:00
alkisgSo it would amount to writing a wiki page about it...10:00
alkisgFrom the booted system it would be easier10:00
tayler6000So my understanding is I should backup and rm anything that isnt the grub folder or ending in -43-generic which is what I'm running10:01
tayler6000is that correct?10:01
cfhowletttayler6000, no10:02
alkisgtayler6000: you basically need enough free space there for the new kernel that it's trying to install, and fails10:02
cfhowletttayler6000, you want to keep the currently booted kernel and the previous one as they are proven to work.10:02
alkisgtayler6000: that should be around 50 MB depending on the version etc, so you could move enough old initrd to free up 50 mb10:02
tayler6000so yeah 43-generic the one I'm using and the only one ive used10:02
alkisgtayler6000: how many different kernels are in there? ls /path/to/boot/vmlinuz*, how many kernels there?10:03
alkisgOr, ls /path/to/boot | nc termbin.com 999910:03
alkisgls -l better, to also check the size10:03
tayler6000http://termbin.com/gln2 alkisg10:05
alkisgtayler6000: I would delete all the initrd's that have 3.19.0.-3*10:05
tayler6000but I run on 3410:06
alkisgWhat? No 34 there10:06
tayler600043 sorry10:06
alkisgYes the issue started on 4910:06
tayler6000so Like I said before should I remove everything that isnt 43?10:07
BluesKaj'Morning all10:07
alkisgSo the easiest way I can think of is for you to boot to the normal system, then mv all the stuff that is older to 43 elsewhere, the run apt-get install -f10:07
alkisgThat might still fail because you have 3 new initrd's waiting to be generated10:08
tayler6000Ok I can do that10:08
alkisgTry it first and we'll see if more space will be needed10:08
tayler6000well should I remove everything before 43 also?10:08
tayler6000that should give me plenty of space10:08
tayler6000ok I'll do that then10:08
alkisgWell not as much as you think10:08
alkisgBecause if 3 initrd's need to be generated, that might need more than 100mb, and your whole boot is 25010:09

islandmonkeyHello there, I have an issue with some of my keyboard shortcuts suddenly not working properly10:12
islandmonkeyI have a Lenovo Z500 laptop with Ubuntu 16.1010:12
alkisgtayler6000: although it's fine for 3 kernels, so as long as you don't keep them all there, it doesn't need to be increased10:12
alkisgtayler6000: it's somewhat hard because you also have an extended partition, those are hard to resize10:13
alkisgJust remove the old kernels, I'll send you a script for autoremoval for the future in the end10:13
tayler6000ok I'm restarting now10:15
tayler6000Ok so I booted just fine and did sudo apt-get -f install and it seems to be working fine10:20
tayler6000it'll take forever to update but its working at least10:21
alkisgtayler6000: here's a script that purges all the older kernels except for the latest and the running one: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ts.sch.gr/sch-scripts/trunk/view/head:/share/sch-scripts/purge-kernels10:21
alkisgYou can save it to /usr/local/bin and use it so that you don't have to type the kernel names etc10:22
tayler6000alright thanks10:22
tayler6000alright well I'll come back if I have any problems thank you to both of you!10:23
cfhowletttayler6000, you might also consider running this on the regular:   echo "Updating" && sudo apt update && echo "Upgrading" sudo apt full-upgrade -y && echo "Cleaning Up" && sudo apt-get -f install && sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get -y autoclean && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get purge -y10:24
tayler6000that is the longest command I've ever seen I think haha10:24
cfhowlettseveral chained together10:24
tayler6000I know10:24
cfhowlettI suppose I could make an executable script but ... this is more fun.10:25
BluesKajI just use autoremove, autoclean and ./fixpackages periodically...works fine10:26
tayler6000ok cfhowlett10:26
tayler6000so Now I have this on my -f install10:27
tayler6000E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)10:27
tayler6000Same problem?10:27
cfhowletttayler6000, best of luck.  let's not defer maintenance next time10:27
alkisgCheck above10:27
alkisgOr put the whole output to pastebin10:27
alkisgOr check df -h, free space of /boot10:28
tayler6000whats the nc thing?10:28
alkisg| nc termbin.com 999910:28
tayler6000fml yeah its my boot again10:28
tayler6000I did df -h10:28
alkisgYou need to keep at most 3 kernels, not more10:28
BluesKajfor the fixpackages script look here https://paste.kde.org/pot39sruc10:29
tayler6000so Should I restart and see if I boot on something later that 43 and start the prosess all over again?10:29
tayler6000just rince and repeate till it works?10:29
alkisgtayler6000: you can temporarily put /boot in another dir10:30
alkisglike... sudo umount /boot10:30
alkisgsudo apt install -f10:30
alkisgThat should use your logical partition for /boot temporarily so that apt finishes10:30
tayler6000but then wont I have the same problem?10:31
alkisgThen you'll run purge-kernels to remove all the 10 kernels you have except for 210:31

alkisgOK, when it finishes, you need to remove the extra kernels10:37
tayler6000then restart?10:37
alkisgNo, then you need to move things from the temporary boot to the real boot10:38
alkisgBecause your latest initrd won't be in the real boot10:38

LinuxNovicehi, I needed some help. I tried to open some pdf files in Ubuntu and was not able to because it is locked. But, the same file opens in Sparky Linux. What could be the reason for it?11:15
cfhowlettyour time, maybe.  it's only 8:15 PM here in Tokyo11:15
cfhowlettLinuxNovice, what app did you use to open them in Sparky11:16

CatametrictonicHey would anyone know why when using SCP to copy files over a local 100Mb network with little traffic the copies start off at close to 100Mb and subsequent files being copied transfer at <8Mb?11:46
Ben64slow drive, slow router, slow cpu, combination of those, something completely different11:47
theblazehenCatametrictonic MB or Mb? IIRC scp's bandwidth estimation at the start is way off and then goes to the real number11:47
=== the_ant1 is now known as the_ant
theblazehenEg, would show 1.3 MB/s on my adsl line for a few seconds, then go back to 100 KB/s or so11:48
Catametrictonictheblazehen - yes, I'm using megabits....11:48
=== MrTuxHdb is now known as Tux|AFK
theblazehenCatametrictonic what does `iperf` say?11:49
CatametrictonicBen64 that doesn't explain why the first file is copying at 10megabytes and the subsequent files are transferring at 900kilobytes.11:49
Ben64sure it does11:49
OerHeksCatametrictonic, first minute the cache on your network/hdd gets loaded, when full, the speed drops, pretty normal11:49
=== smethia is now known as smethia_Away
Catametrictonictheblasehen - TBH I've never used iperf.11:50
CatametrictonicOerHeks, rsync is not having the same problems as scp.11:51
Catametrictonicbut I understand the implication.11:51
CatametrictonicI just don't like rsync because it's very dangerous and the syntax can be complex.11:52
theblazehenCatametrictonic https://asciinema.org/a/2x1wqk9x8ilpyo9t0x0tz54pl is it like that?11:52
Ben64rsync is dangerous?11:52
nubcakeanyone? :/11:52
OerHeksnubcake, anyone what?>11:53
Catametrictonictheblazehen, yep, starts fast, then tails off.11:53
CatametrictonicBen64, can be if you fuck up.11:53
Ben64so don't11:53
Ben64anything can be dangerous if you mess it up11:54
nubcakei'm having problems connecting from the same lan to my mysql server running ubuntu 16.04.1 x6411:54
CatametrictonicBen64, I'm a fuck up. I've accepted that long ago.11:54
OerHeksoh, with 'if' you can put Paris in an empty winebottle11:54
nubcaketried to set root's host to % didn't help11:54
Ben64watch the language here Catametrictonic11:54
OerHeksCatametrictonic, please watch your language, keep the channel family friendly, thanks11:54
Ben64scp is just as dangerous as rsync11:54
nubcakehashed the bind = so it's not used11:54
theblazehenCatametrictonic I've always experienced that. If you're taking the number scp gives, 8 MB/s is 64 mbit/s which isn't the best over ethernet but alright for wifi11:54
nubcakestill cannot connect (restarted mysql, restarted the whole box)11:54
Ben64nubcake: is it listening on the right ip11:55
theblazehenCatametrictonic sometimes scp feels like https://xkcd.com/612/11:56
Catametrictonictheblazehen, no, I've checked the speed with bmon on both ends. It's definitely slow and not a calculation issue. I've seen it work well. But lately it's doing this  first file fast, next files slow. It's probably what Ben64 said, a cache or memory issue. But I wouldn't know how to fix that.11:56
CatametrictonicIt's not that I just started using SCP. I've been using it for years with no weird issue like this.11:57
Ben64if rsync goes fast, then use it11:57
Exterminadorguys, any idea about this? http://paste.ubuntu.com/23623550/ -> Xubuntu x6411:57
CatametrictonicI am11:57
agent_whitetheblazehen: You have to tease a little bit. That's hardball.11:57
agent_white'scp, man of mystery'11:57
theblazehenCatametrictonic Alright. Install pv locally then `ssh theserver cat /dev/zero | pv >/dev/null` to see what you get11:58
OerHeksExterminador, 'All packages are up to date." duhhh11:58
agent_whiteyou should re-route scp to rsync anyway due to obvious benefits11:58
ExterminadorOerHeks, but the fail on AppStream11:58
theblazehenIf there's many files I like to pipe tar over ssh11:59
ExterminadorAppStream cache update completed, but some metadata was ignored due to errors.11:59
theblazehenAvoids a round trip for each file11:59
Catametrictonictheblazehen, will have to try that later. I'm copying the files I need with rsync presently. Was hoping someone would say "Oh yeah man...I've had that problem too....here's what you do...."...you know the quick fix.11:59
OerHeksExterminador, oh ignore it, see http://askubuntu.com/questions/854168/how-i-can-fix-appstream-cache-update-completed-but-some-metadata-was-ignored-d12:00
theblazehenCatametrictonic yeah. Seems interesting that rsync is fine. Is it a lot of small files or few large files?12:00
OerHeksdon't enable backports, at least i would not12:00
Catametrictonictheblazehen, large files12:00
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1644498 in appstream (Ubuntu Xenial) "apt-get update returns "AppStream cache update completed, but some metadata was ignored due to errors." periodically" [Medium,Fix committed]12:01

fracklenI have a problem... When new disks (internal) are added, basic users can't see them (using mount or df). This was working fine in 14.04. How can I configure to let normal users see disks in 'mount' and 'df' ?12:01
theblazehenfracklen there should be a disk group that you can add users to iirc12:02
theblazehenWait, _see_ them? That's new..12:02
fracklenyep - new to me as well... 'sudo df' has very different view than 'df'12:03
EriC^^mount just displays /etc/mtab12:03
EriC^^it works here on 16.04, normal user can read mount and df12:04
EriC^^fracklen: which ubuntu?12:04
Catametrictonictheblazehen, I've come to accept that I generally don't ask the easy to answer questions when I come here.....that's a good thing I believe. But, I keep trying because you never know.12:04
fracklenEriC^^: /etc/mtab is a symlink to /proc/mounts - so something in the proc subsystem has been changed12:04
EriC^^is it a vps image?12:04
Catametrictonictheblazehen, what I'd really like to know is how you know to do the ssh to cat the pipe through pv to null shit.....12:04
EriC^^or the iso downloaded from the site?12:04
fracklen(server ofc)12:05
EriC^^what happens when you type mount or df12:05
ExterminadorOerHeks, fixed! thanks12:05
fracklenit displays root and tmpfs's12:06
theblazehenfracklen `strace mount | nc termbin.com 9999` as normal user12:06
EriC^^fracklen: does lsblk list the others?12:07
theblazehenOr `strace mount >/dev/tcp/termbin.com/9999` if you don't have netcat12:07
theblazehenSorry, `strace mount &>&1 | nc termbin.com 9999` to grab strace output12:08

Omnipotentis it possible to install Ubuntu 16.04 UEFI with GPT partitioning with Rufus tool?15:18
=== colonel is now known as Guest14191
OmnipotentI had windows 10 UEFI installed on my laptop, and when I installed Ubuntu 16.04 with GPT partition and UEFI selected in Rufus, I ended up with loading windows 10 only, no bootloader seems to be installed15:19
Omnipotentwhen I enabled my legacy mode, grub showed up15:19
Omnipotentwhy didn't my install end up being UEFI?15:19
BluesKajOmnipotent, does legacy mode/drubh show your windows entry and allow you to boot it?15:21
BluesKajlegacy mode/grub15:22
arrrghhhhey all, curious about setting up a USB key for 'all' the downloads.  I'm going to be updating a couple of machines from 14.04 to 16.04, and the internet access is atrocious.  I'd like to pre-download as much in the way of updates as I can so this doesn't take 3 days... I found AptGet/Offline and apt-medium but I'm a bit lost on the 'best' way for me...15:24
OmnipotentBluesKaj, I managed to nuke my windows an ubuntu while playing with it15:24
Omnipotentnow I installed ubuntu again after again using Rufus.. with GPT partitioning enabled15:25
Omnipotentand ended up installing legacy once more15:25
arrrghhhso I'll have the latest 16.04.1 or whatever version they are up to now, but there's usually a slew of updates past that as well...15:25
Omnipotentnow I do not have windows, So I do not know if it shows windows or not15:25
OmnipotentBluesKaj, I had legacy mode completely disabled, so I am sure my flash drive booted into UEFI when installing15:25
BluesKajOmnipotent, run sudo os-prober , then sudo update-grub15:26
gde33not sure where this question belongs: I've switched the theme, now the curved part of the firefox focused tab is the old color (left and right of it)15:27
nicomachusso (I think) I completely removed MATE from my system here, but I'm still getting this MATE splash screen and DM: http://i.imgur.com/ZOdf0n7.jpg         http://i.imgur.com/11Xv6Bm.jpg15:27
OmnipotentBluesKaj, currently booted to Legacy, so shows 2 Found entries15:28
OmnipotentDisabling legacy shows "No device found on HDD" so can't go into Ubuntu at all.15:28
BluesKajI use legacy mode , doen't nother me at all , UEFI is just new BIOS15:29
OmnipotentBluesKaj, yeah but why wouldn't it install on UEFI15:30
BluesKajdunno , in any case if you can boot windows too then it doen't matter15:31
OmnipotentBluesKaj, yeah well I suppose.15:34
OmnipotentUEFI had extremely fast boot times though15:34

gstaniakIn the preseed repos settings (not the mirror ones), what is the location of the keys I need for the unattended install? What I mean is, if the repo's URL is http://uk.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/xenial/, is the key for "apt-setup/local0/key" the one located at http://uk.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/xenial/Release.gpg?15:35
uioHi trying to install extra LaTeX packages.  I installed texlive with apt-get and then tried tlmgr install amsmath but got the message cannot setup TLPDB in /home/user/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 5604. Any thoughts?15:36
phos1Hi! For some reason when I try to load a page on my ubuntu server, I get an internal server error. i can’t find any error logs or messages anywhere. Memory etc seems fine, so i really need error messages..15:36
naccphos1: where are you looking for logs? all pages fail to load (even the one that is the root document)?15:38
sruliOmnipotent: i believe the reason for the fast boot with win+uefi is the system goes into a type of hibernation.. in win power settings the is an option to disbale fast boot, if i remember correctly with that option enabled you cannot run dualboot15:38
phos1nacc: Front end pages load fine, it’s just some admin functions fail (CMS). I am looking in var/log/apache215:38
naccuio: amsmath ships with texlive-latex-base, no?15:39
naccphos1: is the CMS its own application (i.e. apache is just basically serving as a proxy), or just documents served by apache? are you getting a 404?15:40
uionacc: I don't think so, but I'm sure I'll have to add other packages if not that one..15:40
naccuio: `apt-cache search amsmath` implies that it is15:41
naccuio: well tht and `apt-cache show amsmath`15:41
phos1nacc: No, it’s just drupal, a website CMS. It just comes up on the screen and says: An internal server error occurred. Please try again later.15:41
naccphos1: which version of ubuntu?15:41
phos1 14.04.5 LTS15:41
naccphos1: and has it ever worked?15:41
phos1Not that I have ever seen15:42
naccphos1: drupal7 from the archives?15:42
bmullanjoin #arctica15:42
phos1nacc: No, just installed as web files. It’s like it’s out of memory but i odn’t think it is. I can’t tell without error message/ logs though15:43
naccphos1: are you sure it's properly configured, etc.? Im fairly sure the package works and doing it on your own is harder to support (and not really an ubuntu issue potentially)15:44
phos1The site works fine on my server, and I just cloned it to this one, so I know it’s a configuration issue on this server I just can’t figure out what it is. I have no idea how to turn on error messages15:45
naccphos1: i'm guessing you don't have php installed or configured, maybe (so the php engine is failing to start?)15:46
phos1nacc: It loads most of the php pages, just some of the bigger things are crashing15:46

Omnipotenteven though I installed it wit UEFI enabled15:56
DomeMasterany help at all?15:56
srulithingything: you might want to make it immutable, "sudo chattr +i /path/to/file" in this case even root cannot write/delete file15:57
zykotick9thingything: i'd change the owner/group to root with "sudo chown -R root:root /path/to/folder" then change so group and other have rx on the folder "sudo chmod go=rx /path/to/folder" then i'd go into the folder and change all the files to have read only "sudo chmod go=r *"15:57
sruliOmnipotent: have u verified you installation media is eufi ?15:57

BlauskaerMsruli: Will chekck it out :)16:04
phos1gstaniak: Yup that loads up fine16:05
gstaniakphos1: so the server config is basically ok, it's the drupal code that makes it choke16:05
sruliOmnipotent: have u installed as a dualboot?16:05
phos1Somewhere yes, but I am not getting any error messages which is what i’m trying to fix16:05
Omnipotentsruli, not at the moment, I screwed up my windows 10 installation earlier, so not anymore, I fresh installed Ubuntu 16.0416:06
gstaniakphos1: nothing in the apache error log?16:06
Omnipotentthe main problem now is that, if I disable legacy, UEFI doesn't show up.16:06
phos1gstaniak: Correct, totally empty16:06
Omnipotentif I disable legacy, Grub doesn't show up16:06
phos1I just get “Internal server error” running some tasks16:06

sruliOmnipotent: something is wrong there, i only see /boot/efi partition and no /boot partition, are you planning to have a dualboot on this machine?16:07
Omnipotentyes later on, currently there is only ubuntu installed16:07
gstaniakphos1: you could try running apache in the foreground (http://zroger.com/blog/apache-in-the-foreground/), perhaps it will print something in the terminal window16:08
OmnipotentShould I have made a /boot partition? I selected "something else" when installing ubuntu as fresh, since I didn't had Windows anymore on my machine there was no option on "along side windows"16:08
OmnipotentI selected something else and made mount points /   efi and swap and installed ubuntu, should I have not done that?16:08
sruliOmnipotent: i dont use windows but my only experience with dual install is having windows installed first, are u planning an encrypted install of ubuntu?16:09
OmnipotentI don't mind it being encrypted or not.. it's not a serious issue.16:09
Omnipotentsruli, I had windows installed first, but I screwed it up while fixing grub.16:10
sruliOmnipotent: instructions are completly different.. u have to make your choice before u start... which way are u going?16:10
Omnipotentnow I reformatted and installed ubuntu first.16:10
Omnipotentwhichever way is simpler...16:10
Omnipotentencrypted install of ubuntu means "Encryption of my home folder" ?16:10
Omnipotentthe checkbox that we select at time of install?16:11
srulino, encryption of /root partition, encryption of home folder is a simple checkbox as you saw16:11
Omnipotentyeah that's enough for me16:11
OmnipotentI don't need / encrypted16:11
DomeMasterevery upgrade of Ubuntu fails, yet you're meant to upgrade to keep your machine secure16:15
sruliOmnipotent: in your place i would start with installing windows first (if that what u want as an end result) just install it on the whole hard drive then in disk management shrink it (if it doesnt allow you to shirnk enough follow this guide http://tinyurl.com/z55z6or )16:16
sruliOmnipotent: i never tried a non encrypted install so i only ever used manual partitioning, but i beleive if you choose to "install alongside windowss" and if it asks where to install bootloader you should choose the actual name of the hard drive16:17

Bashing-omSlown: My take on swap : Do you intend to be able to hibernate the system ? With 8 Gigs of ram swap ordinarily will not be touched, however the system does expect that swap to exist, so a samll swap is cheap insurance .20:05
Slownok thanks for you answer20:06
ohemdevinI usually have at least 4 GB of space allocated to swap, even though my computer has 12 GB of RAM.20:06
SlownI think 2 GB is enough for swap20:06
ohemdevinI followed a guide from the Red Hat website when I was making that decision.20:06
NoImNotNineVolt64GB ram, 64GB swap here.20:07
Bashing-omSlown: I have 4 Gigs of ram .. and a 1 Gig swap partition .. my use case is light and I have never experienced a problem swap wise .20:08
Slownok thanks20:08
CodeMouse92Bashing-om: I'm coming in VERY late on this convo, but isn't the convention to make the swap equal to your RAM?20:11
CodeMouse92Or am I missing something more?20:12
Ben64if you want to hibernate, you need swap to equal ram or more20:14
Bashing-omCodeMouse92: Well, yes and no .. Got to realize that there are a lot of old docs around from the time of sparse ram . Now if you are to hybernate, then yes one needs a bit larger swap than that of installed ram .20:15
CodeMouse92Bashing-om: Hm, that does make sense. If you don't need to hibernate, the OS isn't very likely to swap off its entire contents.20:16
CodeMouse92(One more case of "WHY do we do this", eh?)20:16
Ben64i have 16GB ram and no swap20:17
Ben64if i had less ram, i'd enable some swap20:17

gwoztdamn it, is my apt somehow broken or something cuz i dont get the same output as you22:30

gwoztgenii, thx mate22:30

lucyfxi dont have *22:30
gwoztbut why does this happen?22:30
geniigwozt: No problemmo22:30
lucyfxapt list *node* works for me, no quotes22:31
geniigwozt: Because it's parsing the line, you have to escape the asterisks22:31
lucyfxand I dont?22:31
Knittelbetter said, a friend did22:31
gwoztgenii, yeah but why does it work on different inputs like *mysql*22:31
Jordan_Ulucyfx: Otherwise if you had a file named pumpkin_nodeule.txt in your current directory then "apt list *node*" would run "apt list pumpkin_nodeule.txt" because the shell would interpret the glob before apt even sees it.22:31
gwoztwhen i put in *mysql* as input it works just as expected22:32
lucyfxJordan_U, reminds me of the I accidently rm rf'd myself22:32
lucyfxof the time *22:32
lucyfxgwozt, so you have a file named node in that directory?22:32
lucyfxlike node_modules, so it searches for node_modules?22:32
gwoztin which directory?22:33
lucyfxyea, just checked. thats whats happening22:33
lucyfxrun "ls"22:33
le_piggwozt: which release are you on? 14.04, 16.04?22:33
lucyfxthe directory you are running the terminal in22:33
Jordan_Ugwozt: Make sure that you quote your glob, like this: apt list '*node*'22:33
gwozti am in home/user directory22:33
lucyfx"apt list *a*" becomes "abcdef" if you have a file named abcdef in that directory for example, as Jordan_U reminded us22:33
le_pigIsn't the "node" package in trusty/14.04 HAM radio software?22:34
lucyfxso in home/user, you have something that matches *node*22:34
lucyfxand apt list searches for that instead22:34
Jordan_Ugwozt: Otherwise if you had a file named pumpkin_nodeule.txt in your current directory then "apt list *node*" would run "apt list pumpkin_nodeule.txt" because the shell would interpret the glob before apt even sees it.22:34

SValkyrieGood evening, I am resuming my quest as a new Ubuntu user to install the OS onto my hard drive.  There is already a 50GB partition that has Win7 installed.  There is another partition that is storage, and a remainder 50GB block of unallocated space.  The difficulty is that Ubuntu Live does not see my hard drive at all, neither partition with data on it or the unallocated space.  Any help is...23:24
SValkyrie...appreciated.  I changed the hard drive from IDE to ACHI in the bios and this did not resolve the issue.  Thanks.23:24
Bashing-omSValkyrie: Still do not know . but a thought as gdisk and Gparted do not see that drive . is the system fully shut down in Windows - such that Windows is not holding that drive ?23:27
SValkyrieMy PC was turned off until I just arrived home moments ago.  I powered it on with the following boot priority: CD drive, Removable Media, HDD.  Because the Ubuntu volume was in the CD drive, it loaded me to Ubuntu live which is what we are chatting on now.  I do not believe that any Windows processes should be running currently.23:28
maddawg2if you are not runnign windows i think that would be a good bet23:29
SValkyrieOnce we determined last night that Ubuntu was not seeing my HDD at *all* I was able to do some more intelligible research today at work.  Is there any chance that the HDD needs to be plugged into a specific SATA connector on my motherboard for Ubuntu to see it?23:31
maddawg2that is possible23:31
maddawg2but you might want to check your bios and make sure the sata port it's plugged into is not disabled23:32
maddawg2it should see it on any sata port unless you have some weird storage controller23:32
SValkyrieI would have a hard time believing it is disabled, as I am able to shut down this live session and boot Win7 no problem.23:32
maddawg2or a RAID controller of sorts23:32
_28_riahello, I've created forcefsck file on all the partitions, that I want to check for errors during reboot, but only the root partition got checked. How to check other partitions during reboot, then?23:32
maddawg2SValkyrie, what are you using to try and see the hard drive?23:33
maddawg2are you trying to see it from the live cd?23:33
maddawg2because if so the reason you cant is cuz it's not mounted23:33
SValkyrieAnother user here walked me through gparted which should display all volumes for my system.23:33
SValkyrieat least, that was the intent that I gathered23:33
maddawg2and did it?23:33
SValkyrieIt displayed only the DVD medium @ 1.41GB23:34
maddawg2what kind of computer is this?23:34
maddawg2it's possible that the sata controller is different or custom23:34
SValkyrieI built it myself several years ago, so it's not really stock from any kind of factory23:34
tomreyn_28_ria: refer to the FSTAB(5) man page (run "man fstab") and its paragraph "The sixth field"23:36
_28_riatomreyn: I've already checked it. I have it set as 2, which means check after root partition.23:37
SValkyrieThis support query was the closest thing I could find resembling my situation: http://askubuntu.com/questions/99038/why-the-ubuntu-installer-does-not-detect-the-hard-drive-during-installation  Unfortunately I do not understand enough of the Ubuntu side to make any progress.23:38
SValkyrieIt is what gave me thought to perhaps having to plug the HDD into a different SATA connector for my motherboard though.23:38
tomreyn_28_ria: hmm, it's possible that the force_fsck only works on fs_passno=1 - but i'm just speculating there.23:38
_28_riatomreyn: but the forcefsck files remained on those partitions after reboot, but on the root (/) partition it got removed and during reboot, I saw, that only 1 partition got checked. I have 3: 1 for root (/), 1 for /home and 1 for /var23:38
_28_riatomreyn: OK, I will try to set other partitions to 1 temporarily and reboot to see if it helps.23:39
tomreyn_28_ria: you could check /home and /var either online or from a recovery shell.23:39
_28_riatomreyn: Well, I am kind of nervous of checking it online, but in the recovery shell, I will check, if check on reboot will not work.23:40
_28_riatomreyn: I am reading tune2fs doc, maybe it has ability to set some parameter in the file system itself, to mark it to check on boot.23:41
tomreyn_28_ria: that's correct, you can set the # of mounts to the # of max mounts before next check23:42
tomreynthat's if it's an ext 3 or 4 sile system (not sure about 2)23:42
