Donald_ET3So, I was using this computer earlier today when suddenly everything became read-only. Even root couldn't write any new files. When I tried rebooting, I got a command line that said "BusyBox" and "(initramfs)". Does anyone know what happened?02:02
Donald_ET3The drive is only half full.02:04
DarinMiller_Donald_ET3: I would help if I could but I have no idea how everything would become read only.02:08
Donald_ET3I suppose it must have been a hardware error.02:09
sintretest a live usb /dvd02:10
DarinMiller_yes, a hw error would be a good guess...02:10
sintresee if same problem02:10
Donald_ET3Well, I'm using a live usb stick on the computer right now and it's fine.02:11
Donald_ET3So, probably a HDD error?02:11
sintrethen   trs the hdd02:11
sintresounds like it02:11
sintrehdd failure are a pain , sometime sthey came come on slowly then this type of things happen02:12
sintreonce had a new pc , and the controller on the hdd worked then didn't then did02:13
sintrepain to get a replacement02:13
sintregot a space hdd enclosure around?02:13
DarinMiller_Donald_ET3: install gnome-disk-utility and use it to review your hard drives SMART data.02:13
Donald_ET3Hmmm, maybe SSDs do have some merits... when I play audio, the disk activity light goes solid even if I'm not doing anything. I suppose the HDD can't handle the vibration?02:14
sintrena , they're meant to spin lol02:14
sintrebut they can go bad just like anything02:14
Donald_ET3I guess so02:14
sintrei have some that lasted 8 years others dead in 6 months02:14
sintrei use ssd myself in my to notebooks02:15
sintrehaven't had a problem so far02:15
sintrebut the logngevity of them is still up for time to tell on a whole02:15
sintrebiggest problem now is i have more platter hdd's than i know what to do with02:15
sintresitting on like 2 tb of drives lol02:15
sintrethey come in handy though once an awhile02:16
sintrekde partition manager can give a mini smart report02:17
sintredoesn't work on my ssd for some reason though02:18
Donald_ET3Okay, I'll try that as soon as I rescue a bit of data I didn't backup and reinstall the OS.02:18
DarinMiller_Donald_ET3:  kde partition manager can be installed on your current enviro (if its not already installed).  Check your driver to ensure its good before re-installing...02:21
Donald_ET3Okay, KDE Partition Manager says "SMART status: good", "Bad sectors: 1"02:24
sintredoes it say na by most of the tests02:25
sintreok not full report like mine02:25
sintretry the gnome-disk-utility02:27
sintrethat darrin recomended02:27
Donald_ET3"errors resulting from shock and vibration: 107"02:27
sintrehmm where did that come from02:27
DarinMiller_Donald_ET3: Laptop?02:27
sintrekdde part?02:27
Donald_ET3Yea, this is a laptop02:27
Donald_ET3intersting to know02:29
sintredarin downloaded gnome-disk-utility  doesn't seem to have a feature to check smart settings02:30
DarinMiller_Donald_ET3: if gnome-disk-utility give you a clean bill of health, you should be fine to re-install.  But without hands on, I don't know what else to advise.02:30
DarinMiller_It's the hamburger icon at the top.02:30
sintrelol there it is02:31
Donald_ET3So, should I just use apt to install it to a live system, or is it more complicated than that?02:31
DarinMiller_Did you live boot to run the test?02:33
sintrewell do you want to install ontop of a potentiall already failing hdd?02:33
Donald_ET3Well, I am in a live environment. Does apt work in a live environment?02:35
sintresudo apt install gnome-disk-utility02:36
DarinMiller_yes, but it only installs to your live enviro unless you chroot....02:36
Donald_ET3Okay, SMART data from GNOME Disks says "Disk is OK, one bad sector"02:39
Donald_ET3Alright then.02:39
sintrewlel then gues sonly one way to find out then02:39
sintregive it an install02:40
DarinMiller_Donald_ET3: a few bad sectors are typical.02:40
sintrewhy is ystem completely went down still the mystery02:40
sintrewithout any  kinda of causation02:40

sintrewent thru around 15 installs working and playing with my new lappy over last month or so04:58
luis_Waiting on the dist-upgrade to finish. 71 packages are being updating04:58
DarinMillerluis_: to fix the conflict, try sudo apt upgrade -f04:59
luis_Is that the same as sudo apt-get install -f04:59
sintreget command isn't needed04:59
sintrei believe04:59
luis_Yeah, I'm old school05:00
luis_getting used to just using the newer apt05:00
DarinMillerluis_: yes, both apt and apt-get work, but apt is a slightly new package manager interface but work essentially the same as apt-get.05:01
luis_Yes, yes05:02
sintreas for tresting is there any  lile simpleton mic recording software in the repo05:02
luis_I like that it give you a bit more graphical informantion on the terminal05:02
sintreso he doesn't have to try to voice chat somebody05:02
DarinMillerapt-get always confused me as I have to type 2 verbs to install something: get and install. (I would always forget the install command as I would think that "get" was the command).05:03
DarinMillerluis_: sudo apt install audacity05:04
luis_DarinMiller: I hated typing out that long command too05:04
luis_sintre: Should I install the intel drivers05:05

When I click on "install kubuntu 16.10" it'll pop up for a bit then the window will disappear, so I can't install 16.10. I've download the torrent on different computers and used on different usbs.10:58
viewer|19863what's wrong or is it possible to upgrade to 16.10 from 14.04 via cli?10:59
koffeinfriedhofviewer|19863: you couldnt upgrade from 14.04 to 16.10 directly. First upgrade to 16.04 (next LTS)11:04
koffeinfriedhofBut you'll prefer a clean installation and just copy the things you need. There was much changed from 14.04 to 16.04 (systemd, new plasma,...)11:05
viewer|19863I couldn't get the 16.10 torrent to work so I tried the 14.04 one. That worked. Is it sudo do-release-upgrade to update to 16.04?11:05
koffeinfriedhofYes. But it is NOT recommended to upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04. But have a try or download the 16.04 ISO directly.11:06
viewer|19863alright. Will try that iso first.11:07
viewer|19863thanks happy new year.11:07

Did I do something wrong? It has been over 24 hours since I added the a record so I assume it should have propagated. Also going to https://subdomain.domain.17:43
