ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html00:16

FrostyBytesfearnothing: what are the issues?00:32
fearnothingI'm trying to send logs that are being sent to /var/log/syslog to a remote server, but not everything I want to send is turning up at the destination00:33
fearnothingI'm getting cron events, and a couple of other bits and pieces00:33
fearnothingbut what I'm really interested in is the slapd events, and those are not coming through00:33

Sean_McGsn9: is this machine a server?00:55
sn9Sean_McG: changelog doesn't mention a change to e1000e, and it's a laptop00:55
Sean_McGsn9: my theory is that maybe something needs a BIOS or EFI update to go along with the firmware00:56
Sean_McGsn9: in any case, I'm not sure this is fixable without a reboot. maybe try downgrading linux-firmware and see if that helps00:58

ItalianBreadPwhat's up? I needed some quick help.02:11
Sean_McG(f)ile (s)ystem (tab)le02:12
priporgSean_McG, nice02:12
priporgSean_McG, is PPA specific for Ubuntu?02:12
hggdhItalianBreadP: just ask your question02:13
Sean_McGpriporg: yes02:13
hggdhpriporg: pretty much. Other distros may have something similar, though, but PPAs are for *buntu02:14
ItalianBreadPI cant seem to get apt-get to work on my new linux system02:14
priporgI read there are two ways to add a PPA in Ubuntu. Not sure why there is a difference.02:14
sn9priporg: older, newer02:14
k1lItalianBreadP: can you show the output in terminal when you run "sudo apt update" on paste.ubuntu.com ?02:14
priporgsn9, it had something to do with the type of PPA...02:15
k1lpriporg: and yes, ppa is specific to ubuntu. its 3rd party repos build and hosted on launchpad.net02:15
k1l!ppa | priporg02:15
ubottupriporg: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge02:15
priporgfor example, sudo add-apt-repository ppa:<name> OR sudo add-apt-repository <url>02:17
k1lpriporg: the first one is a ppa. the second one is another 3rd party repo hosted somewhere else02:17
priporgah..got it!02:18
priporgk1l, thanks. i understand now,02:18
ItalianBreadPif i try to download any app through apt-get, though, it doesn't work02:18
k1lItalianBreadP: you still have the cdrom entries in your sources.list activated. go to system settings > updates und software  and disable the cd rom there02:19
k1lItalianBreadP: and you have already enabled some ppa with kritalime which is misconfigurerd02:19
ItalianBreadPsorry if this looks like a basic problem for you. I'm very new to ubuntu, so I don't understand some stuff02:20
ItalianBreadPin which tab do I disable the cd rom?02:21
priporgCan someone walk me through how to install Nvidia driver 304.134 properly on Ubuntu? I believe I tried almost everything. The previous update to driver gave me endless login loop. After updating the driver to the latest via adding ppa and running sudo apt-get update I get a black screen after login in GUI. Help is much appreciated.02:21
k1lItalianBreadP: on the second tab, called "other sources/programs" there should be a checkmark for the cdrom. disable that02:22
ItalianBreadPah, yep!02:22
ItalianBreadPdisabled it02:22
ItalianBreadPlol sorry, my network kinda dropped02:23
priporgI then tried the manual install via Nvidia installer, it complained "failed to load Nvidia Module" during installation, And on reboot gave me a black screen after gui login.02:23
k1lItalianBreadP: ok, close the updates and programs window. the in terminal run "sudo apt update" again02:23
k1lok, now please run "grep ^ /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* | nc termbin.com 9999" which will output an url, show that url here please.02:25
priporgw.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/ <-- this guide says Nvidia driver 304.xx requires a patched Nvidia Installer as it's incompatible with certain kernels. I'm wondering if this is the same case with some Ubuntu Kernels? Anyone know?02:27
k1lItalianBreadP: ok, we need to delete one line of a file, which is causing that last error: so please do "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kritalime-ubuntu-ppa-xenial.list", then delete  the last line (which is the same as the 2nd line). then press ctrol+o for saving. ctrl+x for exit.02:28
Sean_McGpriporg: possibly, I use the graphics-drivers PPA02:28
Sean_McGjust installed nvidia-37002:28
k1lItalianBreadP: after that "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" and you are good to go02:28
k1lpriporg: its 2017 now and there is a lot that changed since 2015. so if you name your exact card, exact ubuntu and kernel others could help in here02:29
priporgSean_McG, I'm using graphics-drivers PPA as well. Until most recent update to driver 304.134 I was getting endless login loop. Now just getting black screen after gui login.02:30
ItalianBreadPThis shows up on the bottom:   File Name to Write: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kritalime-ubuntu-ppa-xenial.list02:30
k1lItalianBreadP: yes, press enter then to make it save02:31
Sean_McGpriporg: which GPU and Ubuntu release are you using?02:31
priporgk1l, I'm using geforce 7400 go, which uses drivers Nvidia 304.134. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Not sure on the kernel.02:31

ItalianBreadPshould I try apt-get to install an app now?02:31
TallaHi all I'm in need of some help02:32
k1lItalianBreadP: i would first run "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" to make sure you got all the updates installed. then go ahead and install the new programs you like02:32
TallaI tried to upgrade from 15.04 to 16.10 (some steps in between) and due to a power cut... I'm having a lotta trouble02:32
bazhangstate your issue please talla02:32
AbuMaiaTalla: what kind of trouble?02:32
Sean_McGpriporg: I wonder if 304 even works on the kernel in Ubuntu 16.0402:33
TallaWell for one, my old installation won't start up02:33
tomreynTalla: what was your upgrade path, how did you upgrade? what was the last upgrade you started?02:33
Sean_McGlooks like my upgrade to 16.04 broke my nameserver... boo hiss02:33
k1lSean_McG: priporg there is an nvidia-304 package on 16.04 and that works. maybe that card needs some special treatment02:33
priporgSean_McG, I wonder the same. I know it works on Fedora but only using a patched Nvidia installer as it's incomptible with some of their kernels.02:33
TallaI started by using the termin upgrade-manager -d or some such02:34
Sean_McGk1l: possibly, not sure myself. I have a GTX 107002:34
k1lpriporg: that is not the case on ubuntu. ubuntu ships nvidia packages02:34
Tallasince the software center wanted nothing to do with it.02:34
ItalianBreadPk1l: I get this http://paste.ubuntu.com/23720170/02:34
TallaI was just about to complete the upgrade between 15.10 and 16.04 when the powercut struck midway though.02:34
TallaI think I was just past the lightdm selection stage.02:35
Sean_McGanyways I'mma take a break. back later.02:35
priporgk1l, i tried the shipped nvidia 304 package and was getting endless login loop. tried lots of remedies to no avail.02:35
TallaWhen I tried to launch I now get: Failed to start load kernel module02:35
ItalianBreadPyo priporg: I had the same issue. Did you try turning off secure boot on BIOS?02:35
TallaI tried to launch in recovery mode but02:35
TallaI can't access sda1 because it refuses to mount02:36
Tallaand I can't get dpkg to reconfigure because it's locked (on sda1)02:36
priporgItalianBreadP, no, but i'm not sure I have secure boot. i'll check later.02:36
TallaThe reason it won't mount properly is because it is missing some "IO iso885...something or other"02:36
TallaSo far as I can tell02:36
Tallaaka: Royally screwed02:36
ItalianBreadPpriporg: yeah, you should haha. I had the same issue yesterday and it fixed as soon as I turned off secureboot02:37
TallaIn the mean time, I've booted a live disk in the hopes of saving my data02:37
TallaI have 300GB of data and no where to put it.02:37
TallaI can't simply upgrade (which I would like to do) because...well it just refuses.02:37
priporgk1l, Sean_McG, Admittedly I did a manual nvidia install first before using Nvidia-304 package. Not sure if that screwed things up?02:38
k1lpriporg: yes, possible02:38
priporgItalianBreadP, what driver are you using?02:38
TallaAnd I have no idea how to partition off my data so that it's protected from the install (I'd like to reintergrate it later)02:38
ItalianBreadPpriporg: I used 375, I believe02:38
Random832seriously though can someone pastebin /etc/fstab mine got deleted and i need an example of a good one02:38
ItalianBreadPk1l: did you get my pastebin? I still seem to get the same issue02:38
sn9Random832: 14.04, or 16.04?02:39

linuxpccan we rely on the page hit ranking in distrowatch.com. And also, there is custom filter option to choose distros based on certain specific needs like linux for beginners, for old computers etc. Does it provide a reliable information to decide on a particular distro?06:23

PythonProblemsHi all. After updating Ubuntu Packages on my little HP Microserver, I now receive an error when I try to run deluged. https://paste.ubuntu.com/23720726/ Can anyone give me so advice as to how I can troubleshoot? Apologies if this is the wrong place to be asking!06:29
allorderlinuxpc: its a good place to get info, dont take rank number too seriously06:29
Takagami@PythonProblems ooks like the python version / syntax may have changed? Tried updateing Deluge if there is one available?06:30
linuxpcallorder, ok.06:30
PythonProblems@Takagami Thanks for the fast reply! I don't think there is a Deluged update available. I added the deluge-team/ppa repository, and ran apt-get update and still end up with the same error when I attempt to run the daemon.06:36
TakagamiYou may lose some settings but have you tried to reconfigure the package since the system updates?06:37
Takagami'sudo dpkg-reconfigure deluge*'06:37
TakagamiJust a stab in the dark...06:37

PythonProblems@Takagami Hmm. It's a headless configuration on a little HP MicroServer. So I ran the update for Deluged* and not Deluge, but I still receive the same error: https://paste.ubuntu.com/23720776/06:43

TakagamiPythonProblems not sure what else to try... I'm not up on python and I don't use Deluge or the Deluge headless daemon... But from the error it looks like the python code that deluge uses is not being executed properly by the version of python installed... maybe try to roll back any python updates that occured, if any?06:51
TakagamiIf the system updates you installed have been out for a few days, there may be some entries on the Deluge github for bug reports? I dunno...06:52

hilai want help about this question  http://askubuntu.com/questions/857155/how-to-create-system-restore-point-with-rsync07:03
pavlosufw question ... I deny port 22 for both in and out (ufw deny in 22, ufw deny out 22) but nmap still reports 22/tcp open07:03
eelstreborpavlos, did you reload ufw?07:04
eelstreborsudo ufw reload07:05
ballpenpavlos I don't understand the mystery of ufw :)07:05
pavloseelstrebor, let me try ... ballpen, ufw is fine07:05
ballpenSure it is07:05
pavloseelstrebor, nmap continues to say port 22 open after reload07:06
Takagamipavlos, also, unless your system is directly connected to your ISP with no router, check your port forward rules on your router. Sometimes it will report as open if it is forwarding, even if the destination is closed? Just an idea...07:07
eelstreborit will if you're scanning the localhost07:07
eelstreborpavlos, try using grc.com "shields up" app07:09
pavlosI'm working on my 16.04 system, I have ssh running. I decided to deny access to 22, hence the rules. But, from another term I can still ssh 007:09
eelstreboror scan the firewall from another pc on the networl07:09
pavlosI thought ufw would block access07:09
TakagamiI like https://pentest-tools.com/network-vulnerability-scanning/tcp-port-scanner-online-nmap personally...07:10
eelstreborpavlos, if you did it right it should block the port - what does ufw status show you?07:10
TakagamiGRC's brute force password calculator is awesome! 76.8 trillion trillion trillion million years... hehehehe07:12

ubottunohacker: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please register with NickServ (see /msg ubottu !register) and use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!07:14
eelstreborpavlos, looks ok to me - you could try being more specific by executing ufw deny 22/tcp07:15
pavloseelstrebor, done ... pastebin is http://paste.ubuntu.com/23720874/07:16
eelstreborpavlos, what does a port scan shor now07:17
pavlosnmap canyon reports 22/tcp open and nc -zv canyon 22 reports Connection to canyon 22 port [tcp/ssh] succeeded! canyon my hostname
eelstreborpavlos, don't know what to tell you - the port should be blocked - maybe try  ufw reject 22/tcp? with no rules ufw will block all incoming traffic  - you might try running ufw without any rules and see if that blocks incoming attempts to port 2207:23
pavloseelstrebor, I tried reject rule instead of deny ... same behavior. It is strange b/c I expected not to be able to ssh 0 ... I will read more on ufw. Ty and happy new year07:25
ducassepavlos: is ufw enabled at all?07:32
pavlosducasse, yes, ufw enable and ufw status reports the DENY ports07:34
pavlosI must be missing something simple07:35
pavlosalso tried ufw deny ssh (kinda simple, using protocol name)07:36
TakagamiYep... looks like my web cache messes with the apt repositories.... ugh... Looks like some exception rules are in order...07:41
al2o3-crit should be as simple as sudo ufw deny port 2207:43

zeroraxhey, I'm having trouble with installing ubuntu on my laptop. it installs fine, but I have the dual-gpu setup with intel and nvidia graphics, and it tries to use the nvidia card when it boots which doesn't work. I can enter rescue mode and get a generic VGA interface, but then I don't have internet to apt-get nvidia-current... any suggestions? I tried the nosetmode boot option and no luck09:27
zerorax(using ubuntu server and mini iso's)09:27
sebsebsebzerorax: ethernet may work in recovery mode I guess09:29
sebsebsebzerorax: but no wireless woudn't suprise me09:29
zeroraxI don't have ethernet as an option09:29
sebsebsebzerorax: also it can get a bit confussed between a Nivia or intel when it's both I guess, but I don't have one with both09:29
sebsebsebzerorax: this is more of a guess than aything else, but I guess you can set it up yourself telling it which to use or not use etc09:29
zeroraxthe solution is to install nvidia-current , but I need networking to do that, and I tried all the workarounds people posted on different forums with no luck09:30
sebsebsebzerorax: Ubuntu server is not meant  to have a GUI09:30
sebsebsebzerorax: by the way09:30
zeroraxI don't want a GUI!!!09:30
sebsebseband mini isoes   uhw hat's that09:30
zeroraxI just want ubuntu to boot09:30
sebsebseboh ok09:30
zeroraxI want to use this laptop as a home server... There's no bios option to disable the nvidia graphics09:31
sebsebsebzerorax: bios no, but in Ubuntu itself you can probably do it some how09:31
zeroraxbut i can't get there to try09:31
zeroraxi just get a black screen after grub09:32
sebsebsebzerorax: well via the command line, you may be able to do something even, but not sure09:32
sebsebseboh a black screen after grub, not even into recery mode and its terminal ?09:32
zeroraxI can get into recovery mode09:32
sebsebsebin the recovery mode terminal, you can probably do something, but I don't know the commands09:32
koffeinfriedhofzerorax: you may chroot into this system using a live-stick or similar. thats perhaps easier that using recovery mode09:32
zeroraxbut I can't get into the system with wlan0 working so that I can install nvidia-current09:32
sebsebsebzerorax: you can probably disable nvidia on the command line forceing it to use Intel09:33
zeroraxI dislike this situation09:33
zeroraxI've been messing around for 3 hours with this09:33
sebsebsebwell  you wanted ngvidia disabled it sounded like09:33
sebsebsebso it wouldl use intel graphic s instead09:33
zeroraxthe reason I use ubuntu is because I want things to just work09:34
sebsebsebwell that won't alwasy be the case, depending on hardware09:34
zeroraxI'm frustrated09:34
sebsebsebuh yeah09:35
koffeinfriedhofchroot is easy and provides your needed networking.09:35
zeroraxyeah, that's true09:35
sebsebsebtry what koffeinfriedhof is saying I guess09:35
zeroraxdo i need to set up any symlinks for the chroot?09:35
koffeinfriedhofzerorax: http://askubuntu.com/questions/56687/how-to-chroot-ubuntu1 bit older but should work09:38
ducassezerorax: did you boot with 'nosetmode' or was that just a typo?09:38
zeroraxI booted with whatever the string is that the forum posts suggested, I don't remember the exact wording09:39
koffeinfriedhofzerorax: nomodeset is xserver related. until 14.04 to use bootoption "text" or "textonly". But this does not work > 14.04 and I do not know newer commands :)09:42

cfhowlettmeldron, cal -m January http://paste.ubuntu.com/23721599/11:42
meldronhttp://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/cal.1.html i am looking for the cal version which has this manual11:42
meldroncfhowlett: yeah cal -M in this version is not working for cal only for ncal, but there a other cal versions, may be some one here knows where to get them11:43
atralheaven_Can I backup my downloaded packages from ubuntu 16.10 to use it for installing them on ubuntu 16.04 on a system so I won't have to download them again?11:44
cfhowlettatralheaven_, downloaded?  not installed via apt?11:44
Ichimusaimeldron: Try this "ncal -M -C" that uses ncal but forces the ouput to be the same of cal.11:45
atralheaven_cfhowlett: they're already installed, on ubuntu 16.10, I want to install ubuntu 16.04 on a system and I don't want to download them again to install them, is it possible?11:45
meldronIchimusai: thanks11:45
cfhowlett16.10 packages will not run in 16.0411:46
ducassecfhowlett: 'cal -M' (capital 'M') fails here as well, but is listed in the man page. bug?11:46
atralheaven_cfhowlett: even packages like firefox etc?11:46
Ichimusaimeldron: Something is borked in cal in Ubuntu, it should be notified upstreams, the man page mentons cal -M but it actually do not work.11:46
cfhowlettatralheaven_, mixing repos and version leads to tears and anguish.  don't do it.11:46
meldronIchimusai: yeah read about it on lunchpad, it least the should update the man page that this option is only woriking for ncal11:47
atralheaven_so I have to download them again... thanks!11:47
meldronthats one of the reasons i am looking for another cal verison but i just cant find one11:47
Ichimusaimeldron: I think there is pretty much just cal in there. Of course you can roll your own from source in worst case.11:48
meldronIchimusai: do you know where i can get the sources11:49
Ichimusaimeldron: Anyways, if the "ncal -M -C" trick solves your problem it may be worthwilte to notify the package maintainer about the issue (again) and see if they will fix it.11:49
Ichimusaimeldron: You probably have to go back to the BSD and port it again, should not be too difficult, https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/head/usr.bin/ncal/11:50
Ichimusaimeldron: Considering most others seems to have pulled the same port and probably suffers the same bug.11:51
Ichimusaimeldron: Anyways, ncal and cal is the same program actually, so I would not put too much time on that.11:51
meldronIchimusai: i think i had a newer/other verison on arch linux, may be i can get the source from them11:52
Ichimusaimeldron: Sure, that's one way.11:52
jocihii happy new year11:54
jocii got a little question11:54
jocii trid chrome and firefox both of them are damn slow, which browser are you guys recomending to use ?11:55
cfhowlett!browser | joci11:55
ubottujoci: Some of the Web Browsers in Ubuntu's repositories include: Firefox (XUL, Gecko), Rekonq (KDE, WebKit), Konqueror (KDE, KHTML/WebKit), Chromium (GTK+, WebKit), Epiphany(GTK+, WebKit), Arora (Qt/KDE, WebKit), Midori (GTK+, WebKit), w3m (terminal-based), links2 (terminal-based or graphical, see !manpage), edbrowse (terminal-based). Along with many others.11:55
Ichimusaijoci: It is my experience that if the web browser is slow it is your specs that is a bit low and you may benefit from using a light-weight windows manager instead. You probably will want to use chrome or firefox.11:57
jociIchimusai what is light-weight windows manager stands for ?12:00
rajuPlease help me. I am really in despair. I was using Xubuntu 16.04 and everything was going fine until my wifi stopped working. It would not be detected. I tried the solutions at https://superuser.com/questions/1162152/wifi-driver-not-detected-in-xubuntu-16-04-for-dell-inspiron-15r-5521 but none would work. Finally, I decided re-installing Xubuntu and when the OS booted up for the first time, the wifi adapter was detected. But again aft12:02

cfhowlett!ics | arulmagi12:07
ubottuarulmagi: If you want to share the internet connection of your Ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing12:07
ikoniaarulmagi: connect it how ?12:07
ikoniaarulmagi: to do what12:07
rajuubottu : I checked the website thoroughly but none of the options seemed to help me.12:08
ubotturaju: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:08
arulmagiactually for my mobile has the internet connection, I want to use the internet in laptop by using wifi option12:09
cfhowlettraju, if the troubleshooting doesn't work, not much more to do than file a bug and wait for the cure.12:09
ikoniaarulmagi: you want your phone to be a proxy for the laptop12:09
ikoniaraju: what model wifi card is12:10
ikoniais it12:10
rajuikonia : Intel Centrino Wireless N 223012:10
arulmagiI want to use my mobile hotspot to be connected to ubuntu12:10
ikoniaarulmagi: ok, so the problem is your phone12:10
ikoniaarulmagi: your phone needs to support a hotspot12:10
ikoniaraju: if you open a terminal and type "sudo iwconfig" what do you get as a reponse (use pastebin.ubuntu.com please)12:11
arulmagiit does support a hotspot, mine is Motorola E212:11
ikoniaarulmagi: disussion over12:11
ikoniaarulmagi: you want to use your phone as a hotspot....it doesn't support being a hotspot, done12:11
ikonianot an ubuntu problem12:11
cfhowlettsad + true12:12
rajuikonia : here you go http://pastebin.com/NNfwsfnh12:12
ikoniaraju: ok, so the card is not being detected at all12:13
arulmagiI have used my mobile as a hotspot in Manjaro previously, you know the same mobile12:13
ikoniaarulmagi: if it supports being a hotspot, ubuntu will detect it's wifi network and connect to it12:13
ikoniaarulmagi: it's that simple12:13
ikoniaraju: has this ever worked for you ?12:13
arulmagiif i clicked on the 'Enable Wifi' connection it shows as 'device not ready'12:14
rajuikonia : Yes. But when I was installing Xubuntu for the first time yesterday, during installation my Wireless Adapter was working fine . After reboot, it worked for a few minutes and then it went quite.12:14
=== [ADN] is now known as _ADN_
rajuikonia : After that it has never been enabled.12:15
ikoniaarulmagi: the ubuntu wifi device is not ready ? or the hotspot is not ready12:15
ikoniaraju: is it possible you have disabled it with a kill switch12:16
arulmagi"wifi device not ready"12:16
ikoniaarulmagi: you said that12:16
rajuikonia: I tried rebooting the system numerous times, reset BIOS settings and disabled power management but to no sucess.12:16
ikoniaarulmagi: is that the ubuntu wifi device, or the hotspot device thats not ready12:16
ikoniaraju: not quite what I asked, most laptops have a kill switch to enable/disable the wifi device as a device,12:16
arulmagiubuntu wifi device12:16
ikoniaarulmagi: can your ubuntu machine connect to wifi networks ?12:16
ikoniaarulmagi: eg: can it connect to networks now12:17
rajuikonia: Maybe, I don't know. When I use the kill switch , bluetooth gets turned off and on properly but Wifi won't.12:17
arulmagiby USB tethering i have connected it now12:17
ikoniaarulmagi: never mind, I'm asking you questions, your ignoring them and answering another different question that no-one asked12:18
rajuikonia: When I do grep -i networkmanager /var/log/syslog , the logs are here http://pastebin.com/tPzxa7BP.12:18
ikoniaraju: ok, so you need to have a look in the syslog and look for references to the intel wifi device, see if it sees it, then see what it does when it trys to bring it up12:18
ikoniaahhh well done12:18
rajuikonia: Interestingly, it says WiFi hardware radio set disabled.12:19
ikoniaraju: Jan  1 13:21:51 max NetworkManager[954]: <info>  [1483257111.0659] WiFi hardware radio set disabled12:20
rajuikonia: So, what do I do ?12:20
ikoniaraju: need to understand why it's being flagged as disabled12:21
ikoniathere was another line...hang on12:21
ikoniaJan  1 13:21:45 max NetworkManager[954]: <info>  [1483257105.6647] urfkill disappeared from the bus12:21
rajuikonia: Ok. Sorry !12:21
ikoniaraju: an interesting test would be to boot the live media and see if it works from live media12:21
rajuikonia: Yes, I tested it and it works fine there.12:22
ikoniaraju: so something in your actual install is disabling the card12:22
ikonia(at a device level)12:23
rajuikonia: So, what are my options ? I reinstalled it for the second time today and yet the problem persists.12:24
ikoniaraju: that certainly is an option, but it would be useful to understand what triggered this at least, and if possible why it remains disabled12:26
ikoniaraju: depends how you wwant to approach it really12:26
rajuikonia : Please guide me.12:26
Ichimusaiikonia & raju: Did you try to rmmod / modprobe the driver to see if it comes back alive12:26
ikoniaIchimusai: not even looked if the module is loaded, I suspect it has been loaded at boot looking at the syslog output, but it's all worthwhile to check12:28
rajuIchimusai: Please guide me which commands do I need to type for rmmod / modprobe.12:28
Ichimusaiikonia: I think so too, but it could have a bug. Also the systemd people are not inplementing all hardware workaround hacks which means old bugs are coming back some times.12:28
Ichimusairaju: Can you find the driver name in your logs?12:29
ikoniasystemd people and hardware hacks ? what12:30
=== paalgyula_ is now known as paalgyula
rajuIchimusai: No, I can't. But the driver name is , I think, is iwlwifi.12:31
Ichimusaiikonia: With the introduction of systemd for startup it's handling more and more of the networking stuff also which has not been completely unproblematict.12:31
Ichimusairaju: Try modprobe -r iwlwifi12:32
ikoniaIchimusai:.....it's handled through network manager12:32
rajuIchimusai: Well , here you go rmmod: ERROR: missing module name. modprobe: FATAL: Error running remove command for iwlwifi12:34
Ichimusairaju: So the module is called something else I guess.12:34
rajuIchimusai: How do I list all of the modules, then ?12:35
rajuikonia: Even If I do list all of the modules, my WIFI adapter won't show uo since it is not being detected.12:35
Ichimusairaju: lshw -class network12:35
Ichimusairaju: Try sudo insmod iwlwifi12:36
rajuIchimusai: Here you go :- http://pastebin.com/yHFjKjSw12:36
rajuIchimusai: For the second one, insmod: ERROR: could not load module iwlwifi: No such file or directory12:37
IchimusaiYou are right it only lists the ethernet device there.12:37
Ichimusairaju: I suggest booting the live system and then trying to find out which driver is loaded for the wifi. Then back to the installed system and see if you can activate the driver.12:38

ikoniaabb4s: the git page has clear documentation on it12:59
abb4sikonia: what i should do ?12:59
abb4sbut ikonia there is not another way that i include the src file instead of build and install it and link compiler to .so file13:00

ikoniaabb4s: what ?13:00
ikoniaraju: so that looks very good,13:01
abb4sikonia: is there another way   that i include the library's  source files instead of build and install it and link compiler to the .so file13:01
ikoniaabb4s: what you are saying makes no sense13:01
ikoniapangjiahao: please don't do that13:02
ikoniaraju: when this was working at the start, did you do an apt-get upgrade ?13:03
abb4sikonia: sorry if i cant say it precisly , i want to use a library in c++ ,i has to build and install it and link g++ to the shared library (.so file) . but i have a question that can i use this library source without installing it ?13:04
raju_ikonia: The first time I booted Xubuntu, it was working. I did an apt upgrade and then rebooted. Voila ! The wifi refused to work.13:04
ikoniaabb4s: how do you expect to use a library if you don't build it13:04

ikoniaraju_: ok, so I'm reading a few lines at the moment that may suggest this is as simple as your update is using the wrong firmware13:05
ikoniaioria: yeah, I think he's got the backports repo enabled13:05
ikoniawhich doesn't tie in with the firmware on the system13:05
abb4sikonia: so i cant build it without installing ?13:05
ikoniaraju_: do you know how to check what repos you have enabled ?13:05
raju_ikonia: Ichimusal told me to do so . I rebooted the system still to no avail.13:05
ikoniaabb4s: what ??13:06
ikoniaraju_: told you to do what exactly ?13:06
raju_Well, you know, install the backport as suggested in https://askubuntu.com/questions/695191/how-to-install-wifi-driver-iwlwifi-4-2-0-16-generic.13:06

raju_ikonia: Can't we just remove the backports ?13:11
ikoniaraju_: and replace it with what ?13:11

ikoniaraju_: no need for sorry13:12
ikoniaraju_: I'd guess it will only take 20 minutes max to re-install if this is a clean install13:12

raju_ikonia: Bro, can you give me some details on where I can contact you ?13:13
ikoniaraju_: install new, test it, take a note of the modinfo iwlwifi output, run your apt-get update, see if it breaks as it did before, if it does, come back here13:13
ikoniaraju_: I'll be here, I'm going nowhere,13:13

ikoniaraju: it may differ, thats what we want to see14:56
rajuikonia: How do I do that ? I am currently on the live cd. Do I need to boot again into the broken install14:57
ikoniaraju: thats right14:57
rajuikonia: ok, give me few moments.14:57

ikoniaraju_: blacklist dell_wmi and reboot16:46
Guest99478is that what you were looking for?16:48

daneshello, anyone can point me to a tutorial on how to connect to internet via wifi from the terminal? I installed ubuntu 16.04 with no GUI and I need to connect to a wifi network on boot. I am confused on how to configure wpa_supplicant16:52
Guest99478um is there a way I can just load it through this version instead of a complete reinstall?16:52
rajuikonia: No, that did not work.16:53
j41Guest99478: I think you'll have to reinstall. Try the live cd first. You can just install the desktop enviroment, but I don't think it will have the same affect, as x/lubuntu use different applications16:54

yvaI tried to install ubuntu with encrypted swap using http://linuxbsdos.com/2014/05/28/how-to-install-ubuntu-14-04-on-encrypted-mbr-partitions/ but the swap isn't recognized. Any ways I can set it up somewhere?17:15
rajuSnowboarder: Yes, it is internal. Intel Centrino Wireless N223017:15
sebsebsebShepard: hi17:19
Shepardso I was trying to upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 and it's telling me it wants to remove all sorts of programs that I use, instead of just old packages17:19
SnowboarderRaju: had same issues with sound card, then swap the system and everything works. Depends on time when hardware was issued, so older issuo of system sometimes work better then newer17:20
rajuSnowboarder: What do you suggest ?17:20
simon_gok, i've added ppa for vim8, it turned out the python support wasn't compiled in, so i've removed and broke system a bit. here is an error massage http://wklej.org/id/3003503/17:20
Sheparda lot of the programs (and libraries) seem to be media-related. there's players like banshee, quodlibet, sayonara or vlc. but also programs like adobe reader, empathy, opera, pidgin, sound juicer, xchat.17:20
SnowboarderCan not check it right now, since i am on mobile17:21
hitman1I am getting blavk screen after ubuntu purple load menu in ubuntu 16.0417:21
Shepardand there's many more things it has marked as no longer used or no longer supported that I'm using, like gimp.17:21
Shepardand this can't be right. so I deactivated all other package sources and tried again, but it was the same problem.17:21
j41Shepard: How are you updating?17:21
Sheparddoes anyone have an idea what's going on or what I could try?17:21
simon_gsorted, i've used aptitude17:22
Shepardj41: just the regular update UI in ubuntu17:22
hitman1What to do ?17:22
simon_gShepard, why not clean install? it's lts, you wont do another one anytime soon17:22
SnowboarderRaju: currently using Mint, and its cool,  i mean ubuntu and mint are both based on debian17:23
rajuSnowboarder: Please send me suggestions at raju17473@gmail.com17:24
Shepardsimon_g: that seems like a lot of work. I'd have reconfigure a lot of things that I've set up over the years. I try to avoid that unless something's really horribly broken :)17:24
blamisimon_g: well I understand him; I also have lot of settings, installed programs, etc. one of reasons why I use ubuntu is I can (while I shouldn't) roll next versions without losing my stuff as I'd do in e.g. Windows17:25
rajuSnowboarder: Ok, I shall try this too.17:25
hitman1Please give me some suggestion ?17:26
ducasseShepard: exactly how you trying to upgrade?17:26
Shepardanyway, it seems like maybe some library (maybe something media-related?) is no longer supported in 16.04 and a lot of programs depend on it so it's trying to remove them?17:26
ducasse!nomodeset | hitman117:26
ubottuhitman1: A 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 parameter17:26
Shepardducasse: as I said, just the regular ubuntu update UI17:26
Shepardnot sure what it's called in the english version17:27
hitman1Ubottu thanks17:27
ubottuYou're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)17:27
ducasseShepard: odd. are you using any ppas?17:27
Shepardducasse: I deactivated them all and tried again but it didn't make any difference17:28
j41Shepard: You could try updating with the command   sudo do-release-upgrade17:28
ducasseShepard: try purging them with ppa-purge17:28
Shepardj41: will that ask me before actually executing the upgrade?17:29
ducasseShepard: the update manager gui basically just runs do-release-upgrade17:29
Shepardducasse: what exactly will that do?17:29
Shepard(the purge I mean)17:29
BluesKajwhat about deleting them from /etc/apt/sources.list.d?17:29
ducasseShepard: remove anything installed from a ppa, so you have the default ubuntu libraries and programs17:30
ducasseBluesKaj: he's tried deactivating them, i suspect some library has been upgraded from a ppa and now blocks the upgrade17:31
Shepardducasse: so would removing those things installed from ppas also remove any settings related to that? I'm just wondering if I can easily go back from that17:33
ducasseShepard: no, they are stored under /home most of the time.17:34
ducasseShepard: besides, since you are going to backup before upgrading anyway, you can go back no matter what - right?17:35
Shepardright... :D17:36
ducasseShepard: purging ppas before upgrading is the recommended way to do it (as is a backup, of course).17:38
vickyHey everyone17:38
Shepardok, I'll try out some things. thanks!17:38

vickyWHats going on17:39
sebsebsebnot much you ?17:39
vickysame here17:39
sebsebsebvicky: you use Ubuntu ?17:39
sebsebsebhi Pozzo17:40
vickyWell I'm new to college, my second sem is going to start tomorrow.17:40
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1292041 in Unity "Lockscreen doesn't turn off the screen" [High,Fix released]17:40
sebsebsebvicky: oh right ok,  college in USA I guess?  and maybe you got Ubuntu on your lap top for that  then : d ?17:40
PozzoAnybody with an idea of a workaround for this bug ?17:41
vickyI'm in India17:41
sebsebsebvicky: maybe you got a Ubuntu support issue even, this is the support channel17:41
ducassePozzo: it says 'fix released'17:41
Pozzoit says but it is not...17:41
vickyyeah theres a problem17:41
vickyI'm not able to install Virtual Box to my system17:42
PozzoI still have this issue : the gnome-screensaver switch off the screen...17:42
sebsebsebvicky:  uhmmm  sudo apt-get install virtualbox ?17:42
sebsebsebvicky: or from software centre?17:42
vickyfrom software center17:42
Pozzoand just 1 second later the screen turn on again but it just displays a black screen with a white cursor17:42
sebsebsebPozzo: gnome screensaver isn't that good anyway17:43
sebsebsebPozzo: it used to be, but not anymore, you could replace it for xscreensaver which now is better17:43
vickyThe dialog box appears with Install button. But nothing happens on pressing it17:43
Pozzosebsebseb: yes but I'm under ubuntu-gnome ...17:43
sebsebsebPozzo: well you still can17:43
sebsebsebPozzo: you would even get real screen savers with xscreensaver :)17:44
Pozzoyes I know... I have used xscreensaver for years :)17:44
sebsebsebvicky: could be a problem with it connecting or trying to connect to the repeos17:44
Pozzowith the Xmatrix theme :)17:44
ubottuThe packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories.17:44
sebsebsebPozzo: also that doesn't really fix your issue, but as a work around, switch to xscreensaver :d ?17:44
PozzoI will give a try with xscreensaver17:44
vickyWhat do you do sebsebseb?17:45
sebsebsebbe a computer geek somteimes, yep been doing  a lot of that today :d17:45
Pozzoit will be better that pushing of the power-switch of my screen everytime I left my office17:45
sebsebsebPozzo: indeed if that works17:46
Pozzothis bug is clearly relative to gnome-screensaver and proprietary nvidia driver17:46
sebsebsebPozzo: altough the  gnome one should work enough really, but eh all it does now, is locks screen, and makes it go black I guess17:46
Pozzowith other PC with intel graphic driver I have no issue17:46
sebsebsebis there a bug link ?17:46
sebsebsebPozzo: if there is an actsaul bug in the package,  then you won't just get a fix anyway17:46
sebsebsebPozzo: not in that relased version of ubuntu anyway, a possible future one yes17:47
Pozzoyes the gnome-screensaver is now very "simple"... just turn off the screen17:47
Pozzoit's enough for me... but really "simple" indeed17:47
sebsebsebPozzo: indeed, and xscreensaver will work in gnome to anyway :)17:47
sebsebsebalso I think gnome screensaver long ago got forked from xscreensaver even17:47
PozzoI will try that right now17:47
Pozzogive me a minute :)17:48
sebsebsebPozzo: make sure to disalbe or remoe gnoe screensaer when doing x screenaver17:48
sebsebsebPozzo: when it asks which to use put xscreensaver17:48
PozzoYes I know the trick :)17:49

tomreynwuii: no (not with much complexity), you'll need to download and write it to a bootable media of its own.18:36
akikwuii: you can probably start it with kvm18:36
Pozzoif I add xscreensaver... without removing/desabling gnome-screensaver : it works properly !18:36
akikwuii: maybe i didn't catch your meaning18:36
linux_2121holy shit18:36
Pozzognome-screensaver turn off the screen... and no more "screen turns on with white cursor 1 second later"18:36
linux_2121I typed in rm * and everything got deleted!18:37
Pozzorm : remove18:37

szymon_gi've tried to compile newer kernel for 16.04, i've downloaded source and patches, i've applied them (no errors), when i've tried to compile it in the debian way that's what i got: http://wklej.org/id/3003568/18:37
Pozzo* : wildcard for "all"18:37
Pozzoso : you remove all the files18:37
linux_2121Pozzo:  I wanted to remove all files starting with the letter "k". So I type in rm k* -- and yet everything got deleted18:38
Pozzolinux_2121: weird18:38
wuiitomreyn: probably not directly supported here, but the installer in the live ppc64 environment doesn't seem to progress after a certain point (16.04), and I was curious because historically I've had good luck with the alternative installer18:38
Pozzomaybe you would have tried : rm "k*"18:38

tomreynwuii: ppc64, is this an architecture?18:41

tomreynwuii: okay, according to http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/xenial/ there exists (or existed?) a port for the ppc64el architecture.18:47

linux_2121I'm just curious, isn't a ubuntu a flavor in itself?18:47
Pozzok1l_: just to avoid seing him killing is ubuntu install when he will try : sudo rm -fr /18:48

pavloslinux_2121, cd /tmp; mkdir testing; cd testing; touch K{1..4}; touch bob; ls; rm K*  ... files gone except for file bob18:48
tomreynwuii: theres an installer here: http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/xenial/main/installer-ppc64el/current/images/netboot/18:48
mynameisJuliansudo apt-get install virtualbox18:48
mynameisJulianMuch easier18:48
k1l_linux_2121: ubuntu is the standard flavor of ubuntu. its shipped with unity desktop. there are other flavors with different setups based on ubuntu18:48
linux_2121lol Pozzo what will that do? Delete everything?18:48
Pozzolinux_2121: yes it will remove everything18:48

jinxi1can I play star craft 2 on Linux?18:50
wuiitomreyn: just for reference the ppc64el is little endian for power8 architecture, while G5 (powerpc 970) is big endian only. I'll admit it's a pretty niche these days as well18:50
k1l_!virtualbox | linux_2121 that is fine to setup a testing environment18:50
ubottulinux_2121 that is fine to setup a testing environment: Virtualbox is a virtualizer for x86 and amd64 architectures. It's available in the package "virtualbox" in the !repositories, and you can download the Virtualbox Extension Pack for additional, non-Free functionality at http://virtualbox.org . Additional details can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox18:50
k1l_jinxi1: do they offer a nativ linux client?18:51
egelorjinxi1: playonlinux18:51
wuiitomreyn: as irritating as it is I'll just wait for the download, thanks for your help in any case :P18:51
k1l_jinxi1: if they dont you will need to use wine, or somethings thats based on wine like playonlinux18:51
Pozzowuii: the download of what ? ubuntu.iso ?18:51
egelorjinxi1: i play Diablo III with playonlinux and some hacks18:51
lasersaberjinxi1, if you have the money get crossover linux18:52
ikoniaplayonlinux is a joke18:52
ikoniait's just a wrapper for wine18:52
Pozzocrossover linux is just wine/playonlinux rebranded and "optimized"... with profiles for some games already prepared18:52
Pozzoit's easier but not necessary18:52
ikoniawant to play a windows game, boot windows18:52
egelorikonia: i make money with playonlinux wine was not permitied at Diablo18:53

ikoniaegelor: you make money ?18:53
Pozzoor give a try to Steam on Linux :)18:53
tomreynwuii: so if ppc64el won't work, look for a working port at http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/xenial-updates/main/ then click on it and traverse into the current/images/netboot/ subdirectory where you will find the latest mini.iso.18:53
ikoniasteam on linux is a joke18:53
ikoniavery few native games and the others just wine wrappers18:53
egelorikonia: yes from diablo market18:53
tomreynwuii: i'm not convinced that any of  the official installers will work for you.18:53
mynameisJulianI don't know if Steam for Windows will run inside of Wine, probably not, never tried.18:53
linux_2121is there a way I can check my system's efficiency in terms of how well it is handling currently running applications?18:53
lasersaberyeah steam on linux is usesless when most games wont play on linux that uses steam18:54
salamanderrakeikonia: close to 2000 naive games is a joke?18:54
k1l_linux_2121: top or htop in terminal18:54
ikoniasalamanderrake: yes, very few major titles that are native18:54
wuiitomreyn: oh, what's different with the mini.iso to the alternative/desktop versions? I'm going to assume is grabs the required packages from the internet, but to what degree?18:54
Pozzoa little question : why there is activities here... and no one on #ubuntu-gnome ?18:55
tomreynwuii: correct, it's a netinstall image.18:55
ikoniasalamanderrake: quality stuff like "bobs game" and "no pineapple left behind"18:55
tomreyn!mini | wuii18:55
ubottuwuii: The 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/MinimalCD18:55
ikoniasalamanderrake: they are not native either18:55
ikoniathey are just confirmed as "working"18:55
lasersaberi still use my winblows 10 for gaming though :-/18:56
salamanderrakewho said they are not native?18:56
ikoniasalamanderrake: read the description18:56
ikoniasalamanderrake: again, not native18:57
tomreynwuii: since ubuntu only officially supports i686 and amd64 architectures, you will depend on a port, and a ported installer. i'm noit sure whether, besides the mini.iso, there are other installers available for ports.18:57
ikoniasalamanderrake: I'm not sure who you are trying to convince here18:57
salamanderrakeikonia: do you know what native means?18:57
ikoniasalamanderrake: yes18:57
salamanderrakeall of feral and aspyr games are native.18:58
ikoniathe feral ones are not18:58
ikoniaF1 2015 is not native18:58
cludzhello, can i have ubuntu install help here?18:58
ikonialooking at the ohters I don't believe the others all are (I don't know all of them)18:58
salamanderrakeyes it is18:59
ikoniait's not, and they are mostly all old out of date stuff18:59
wuiitomreyn: cool, this is looking like a promising lead so far, I've started grabbing the mini instead, I'll let you know how it goes18:59
salamanderrakeyou don't know what your talking about.18:59
* Pozzo 18:59
mynameisJuliancludz: Of course! How can we help18:59
Pozzocludz: what do you want to know ?18:59
salamanderraketotal war: warhammer is 201619:00
cludzso i was installing, and i made a partition for swap, another for / and installed, but then while installing it said that GRUB couldnt be installed19:00
salamanderrakeso is Deus Ex: Mankind divided19:00
cludzand so i cant boot19:00
salamanderrakeand mad max is 201519:00
tomreynwuii: looks like you may need the "powerpc64" port rather than "ppc64el". that's for big endian 64-bit ppc.19:01
salamanderrakevirtual programming are the only ones that are "wrapped" in EOn19:01
salamanderrakeand other games that the devs decided to wrap in wine.19:02
Pozzocludz: where do you try to install your grub ? on the / partition ? on the MBR of your harddrive ?19:02
ikoniasalamanderrake: no idea who you are trying to convince19:02
Pozzodo you use msdos or gpt table ?19:02
salamanderrakeikonia: who are you trying to convince that you even know what native means, your self or others?19:03
wuiitomreyn: funnily enough the page you linked me to has ppc and ppc64, yet no mention of ppc64el :P19:03
ikoniasalamanderrake: not trying to convince anyone of anything19:04
cludzPozzo: where it said "startup manager" (idk how it is in english, im using portuguese. basicily whats under the partitions), i selected the harddrive19:04
tomreynwuii: you mean http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/xenial-updates/main/ ?19:04
salamanderrakeikonia: your trying to convince people you know the difference between wine wrapped, and native, and you don't have a clue. You don't know that games that came out in 2016 ar not old.19:05
ikoniasalamanderrake: not at all,19:06
tomreynwuii: i think you best start here: http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/netboot/19:06
wuiitomreyn: the page the bot linked here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD19:06
Pozzocludz: you have windows already installed on this harddrive ?19:06
cludzno, i want to have linux only, then if i need windows things i just use wine or VM19:07
tomreynwuii: oh ok. the wiki page points to the (outdated) base release images. you'd better use the ones from -updates19:07
Pozzocludz: so... during the installation you have chosen the option "using the entire harddrive and let Ubuntu managing everything" ? or you have chosen "other" and manage manually that point ?19:08
PozzoI mean : the partition table...19:08
cludzPozzo: i selected manually, cause if i let it do it alone, after installing, the computer will say that no boot was found19:08
Pozzocludz: could you accept my private query ?19:09
Pozzoit will be easier to discuss than in the global thread here19:09
wuiitomreyn: in a roundabout way we are at the same place, I was just pointing out that the minimalcd wiki page doesn't mention ppc64el on it (while it's on the other site that hosts the images), and the largely deprecated big endian powerpc64 (the one I'm after) mini.iso is up there in an easy to find place now I think about it, lol.19:11
bivoWhy is there no audio equalizer in the repos? Something like that should be absolutely basic. I should be able to tweak the audio to bring down the high pitched noises and bring up the vocal range so that I can watch something like this and not have the anvil ring make my ears bleed while also being able to hear what they are saying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv3dPHneGI819:11
tomreynwuii: alright, thanks for explaining. i guess you're all set, good luck.19:12

Bashing-omgoose1: In your image paste is that source link . I have never seen the like, If ya want to verify that it is for ubunty, please paste the textual terminal output of ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' giving me the ability to copy/paste from the files .19:37
goose1Bashing-om: ok 1 sec19:38

Bashing-omgoose1: So far looks perfectly legit :) To this time I see no issue . Let them run ( update upgrade) to completion and see then what the package manager relates ?19:42
goose1I changed DL location, sped it up a bit now but it gets to Get:78 and just hangs there19:43
Chatter_-1this network is a bait/entrapment/sting platform doing law enforcement or vigilante work. (ETHICALLY CORRUPT)19:43

goose1Okay it finished, not sure why it took so long19:43
goose1Here is finished paste19:43

jak2000how to check wich mta is installed on my box?19:44

dave0x6dSo I've set a device in overlayroot.conf, but it doesn't seem to do anything.19:47
dave0x6dWhere would the error/status messages be logged for this? Not seeing it in dmesg.19:47
niruxI came from Arch, and I wanted to try Unity, but the issue is after about 10 minutes the whole computer freezes. It happens instantly when watching a video in fullscreen or on YouTube.19:47
niruxI can load a TTY however.19:47
tomreynjak2000: sudo lsof -i :2519:48
niruxI've not been able to figure it out.19:48
Bashing-omnirux: What about memory management . What does ' free -m ' show when running a video ?19:49
tomreynjak2000: alternatively: sudo netstat -pan --inet | grep ':25[[:blank:]]'19:50
dave0x6dI don't see any failed overlay mounts in dmesg.19:51
dave0x6dIs that not the way you're supposed to create a overlayroot?19:52
lasersaberwhy is it not breaking lines? http://paste.ubuntu.com/23723724/19:52

OerHekslasersaber, nope, this has been for years iirc19:55
niruxBashing-om: sorry i left. I tried to watch a youtube video and it completely locked up.19:57
tomreynjak2000: "master" is usually a process which belongs to the "postfix" MTA. "ps ef 1484 2>&1 | pastebinit" to verify19:57
lasersaberis there another site i can use with terminal for outputs tht i can install?19:57
jak2013but wich is it? postfix and or sendmail?19:57
lasersaberwith better text format19:58
tomreyn!pastebinit | lasersaber19:58
ubottulasersaber: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com19:58
Bashing-omnirux: All I can at this point to consider is memory management ' free -m ' shows what before and after starting a video ? as a place to start .19:59
tomreynjak2013: i just answered this question, didn't i? please re-read my previous reply.19:59
lasersaberi have it installed but the output on the site has no line breaks19:59

goose1Confused: can you not get back into windows?20:15
goose1j41: thanks, I know man pages, but I think I foune some stuff20:15
Bashing-omnirux: Agreed is not a memory management issue . Sorry to say I do not know - off the top of my head - what the cause is .20:15
ConfusedNo it just leaves me at grub rescue20:15
socialevilBashing-om when i go to software and updates->additional drivers i see that i am using x.org x server nouveau diaplay driver instead of my nvidia 367.57 proprietary testet ... But last time i changed that i went to this login loop20:16

ConfusedIf I reinstall lubuntu will I get grub back20:18
goose1Or you can just update grub20:18
goose1Do you have windows currently installed on the machine?20:18
Bashing-omsocialevil: If ya had 367 installed from our repo ( not OEM ! ) I can not imagine why nouveau would now be loaded . We can look and see what X thinks ' cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit ' .20:18
k1l_Confused: is only ubuntu installed?20:18
OerHeksboot your windows dvd and choose repair20:18
ConfusedI do but it's stuck in grub rescue20:18
ConfusedI can't use it20:18
niruxBashing-om: No worries man. Thanks for trying : ) I'll see what i can do on it. Maybe it's just the DE. I guess no fullscreen videos for me.20:18
ConfusedSigh I don't have a windows cd20:19
JohnDoe2Hey guys, got a quick question: I set up a proxy, system-wide on 16.04 and logged off, and back on. If I curl -v from the command line, the proxy gets the request and I have a breakpoint set on the proxy so I can edit the request if need be. If however I curl the same URL via php, the proxy displays the breakpoint, but php goes on and connects anyway before I get a chance to do anything to that request. Essentially, php is bypassing the proxy. Why would20:19
JohnDoe2 that not obey the system wide setting?20:19
ConfusedI just said20:19
goose1Confused: http://askubuntu.com/questions/435160/cant-boot-windows-7-after-installing-ubuntu20:19
k1l_Confused: you will need a windows cd or usb to repair/reinstall the windows bootloader20:19
stan_man_canright now I have 2 drives, ones 250GB ones 120GB. the 250GB has my /home and my 120GB has /20:19
goose1Yeah what k1l_ said20:19
j41Confused: Otherwise, reinstall Lubuntu and you'll have GRUB back20:19
Confusedsmh I'll just reinstall lubuntu20:19
stan_man_canhow can I merge them so everything is on the 250GB and the 120GB is empty?20:19
goose1Confused: you can recreate a windows usb by using this link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO20:20
ConfusedI'll figure out a way to delete it after I get windows back20:20
goose1Confused: you can delete it using disk manager in windows20:20
j41Confused: You can repair the bootloader from within windows20:20
Bashing-omnirux: A thought only . what results when operating from the guest account ? Maybe isolate this to a config issue in "your" account ?20:20
ConfusedI can't access windows20:20
socialevilBashing-om paste.ubuntu.com/2372392120:21
goose1Confused: check the askubuntu link i posted above20:21
j41Confused: Once you can boot into Windows after reinstalling Lubuntu (and therefore grub)20:21
k1l_Confused: if you deleted lubuntu, there is no data that grub finds. that is the issue.20:21
j41Confused: The installer should give you the option to 'detect' Windows20:21
k1l_Confused: so either get a windows cd/usb and install the windows bootloader or reinstall the ubuntu and use grub for dualboot again20:21
Bashing-omsocialevil: Reading; I will be a while .20:21

bekksjak2000: Running find on 150 files in a single directory WILL take its time.20:35
stan_man_cank1l_, do they have to be separate partitions?20:35
goose1Then you'll have grub, and you SHOULD be able to get into windows20:35
ConfusedGparted is loading20:35
ConfusedIts up20:35
Bashing-omsocialevil: Yeah make a backup of the file prior to editing is SOP ; and change - GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset" - to - GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" - ( remove nomodeset _ save the file and to propagate the change to the system now run ' sudo update-grub ' . Reboot to see the effect .20:35
goose1Do you see the windows partition there?20:35
ioriaConfused so dual boot ?20:35
k1l_stan_man_can: no. you can have only one / partition which includes your home20:35
ConfusedI see 220:36
ConfusedNTFS and unallocated20:36
stan_man_cank1l_, so if I want everything on the drive that /home is currently on...20:36
goose1Windows should have more than one right?20:36
socialevilBashing-om will do.20:36
k1l_Confused: run a terminal with "sudo fdisk -l | nc termbin.com 9999" and show the url here20:36
goose1there should be a recovery, and boot partition along side the large data one20:36
ioriaConfused  do that20:36
stan_man_cank1l_, I would what, move all of /home to / and then move all of / to the new drive?20:36
goose1Confused: FORMAT the UNALLOCATED one to ext420:36
goose1install ubuntu onto the new EXT4 part.20:37
ioriamaybe he needs swap20:37
Bashing-omsocialevil: K . could be that after the reboot all will be peachy keen fine :)20:37

j41thomedy: I was under the impression that you needed a Mac21:26
linux_userthe other answers are generally right but not what you probably really mean, no, the Apple Development evniroment is not on Linux period.21:26
k1l_confusedtwo: why not use the sliders at the side of the green frame?21:26
mynameisJulianthomedy: Apple xcode only runs on mac21:26
linux_userThat said, a 5 year old Mac at a low price is still workable for xcode today and runs today's variant of MacOS21:26
thomedyi really cant compile swift or objective c... that makes me sad21:26
linux_userMacOS is not Linux or Ubuntu21:27
lasersabermac is bsd i think21:27
thomedyright and i get the difference between bigend little end.. yada yada i was just hoping21:27
k1l_Confused: if you use the numbers you need to subtract the amount of the new size field and add it at free space following.21:27
Ben64thomedy: blame apple, they locked it all down21:27
thomedyi know21:27
linux_userno, not int he sense that environment he wants is on BSD either21:27
linux_userit once was very BSD like but not as much now21:27
pseudonymousthomedy: well, you could, if apple cared enough to let you. Even Microsoft is porting over their .NET environment (it even started off by running twice as fast as it did on Windows). The trouble is, Apple don't want you to, take it up with them21:27
linux_userit is very changed from that21:27
linux_useractually apple cares enough to give you xcode for their computers for free21:28
linux_userthey do not want their apps running on Linux21:28
pseudonymous.. or their devs21:28
lasersaberdont use apple21:28
linux_userI use both21:28
* lasersaber :-/21:29
linux_userbut Apple is Apple and there are reasons why they do that. After all, there is no vendor selling more UNIX systems than Apple at this point, so its not bad what they do if you ask me21:29
linux_userno one21:29
* lasersaber :-/21:29
* lasersaber :-|21:29
linux_userbut the reality is if you "need to write for iOS" as you said, then you need an Apple box to really do it right21:30
linux_userits not a religious thing, its a fact21:30
pseudonymousI have a Mac for work.. Only now did the wisen up and offer standard PC laptops.. But I'm stuck with this proprietary hunk of crap.. You even need to install a custom bootloader to get things going. Nor do apple care enough to properly implement graphics-switching in a standards-compliant way, they just hacked something together for their OS and refuse interop if a non-OSX OS is loading.. Man I hate Apple.21:30
linux_userlike it or not21:30
lasersaberu can vb iso i guess if u need it that bad :-/21:31
bekksNo, you cannot21:31
linux_userhe violates the license to do that really21:31
lasersaberu can use vb to run apple*21:31
linux_userand if he becomes an Apple Development that may matter to him21:31
linux_useras he will agree to not do such things21:31
bekkslasersaber: Only when having Apple Hardware as well.21:31
pseudonymousApple makes Microsoft look like a bunch of treehuggers :P21:32
Nytramlmao.. true21:32
lasersaberhmmm i seen people run apple on intel pcs on YT21:32
pseudonymous(and then try to find a picture for Canonical.. :P)21:32
linux_useractually Apple offers a way to get most normal commercial applications without the pain of Windows21:32
pseudonymousNo, they offer a partially broken OS which, due to marketing, vendors are forced to interact with21:33
Ben64kinda veered off topic now21:33
tomreynpseudonymous: did you succeed on your full disk encryption?21:33
bekkslasersaber: which doesnt make it being legal.21:33
linux_userSo if you need quickbooks, autocad, and Office without the Windows junkOS you can have it and get UNIX too21:33
* lasersaber :-|21:33
pseudonymoustomreyn: Nope, playing with the OS X recovery boot atm. But basically it seems like you need to partition things manually if you don't want to erase the entire disk, and at that point you realize how buggy the partitioning dialog is (I had it crash on me in 3 different ways)21:34
linux_useranyway to answer your real question, you need a MacOS environment on Apple Hardware to do what you need. With everything in life, to do it right is many times not free21:34
linux_userany more than soldering an authentic Mercedes emblem to a Ford does not a Mercedes make it.21:35
=== Tex is now known as Texou
tomreynpseudonymous: hmm, i use it quite regularly and i never crashed (as in segmentation fault, the process failing) on me. but maybe it's due to some special hardware.21:35
pseudonymousThe Unix thing is a misnomer at this point. If you mean to get a certified Unix OS, sure, Apple paid for the cert, so they can call it Unix. But if you read up on the Unix philosophy, or compare the tools bundled to those on modern-day unices, it just doesn't compare (favourably)21:35
* lasersaber lol21:36
tomreynplease would you move religious discussions to #ubuntu-offtopic? we really only do support here.21:36
pseudonymoustomreyn: not segfaults, but a freeze, some state-related partion-tool error where if I went back after making a crypt-partition, it couldn't redo/continue anything. Last thing was a crash further into the install because it failed to mount the / crypt partition.. Sadly.21:36
tomreynpseudonymous: that'son apple hardware if i got this correctly?21:37
linux_userIs there a room policy to kick people offering solutions that violate the licensure terms of software? That21:37
linux_userthat would likely get those people out21:37
Ben64there is a room policy to kick people out who are offtopic, which all of this is21:38

linux_userWell, the initiate query was asking about the cross availability of MacOS development tools for Linux, a reasonable question that should have ended with just no, there is not if you want to deploy an application via the Apple iOS App Store eco-system instead of all the transmogrified responses that was provisioned by people with 'religious issues'.21:41

linux_userI agree, that is why I was suggesting that the only answer should have stopped at no, MacOS development requires a MacOS based Apple hardware system21:43

tryingthisoh. thanks for your help ikonia and reisio22:38
tryingthisI will try to find the appropriate channel22:39
reisionot many people, unsurprising22:39
qwizzicalNo, the download bar evidently indicated that it was being downloaded to some extent. But after a while, it said "Failed".22:39
tryingthisoh. thanks resisio22:39
reisio##windows would technically be on-topic for that discussion, too22:39
reisioqwizzical: so what % did it get to?22:39

reisiotryingthis: also, latest version released upstream isn't the same as latest stable downstream (Ubuntu)22:40
qwizzicalI'm not sure -- that wasn't specified or anything -- but the download was about half-filled22:40
qwizzicaldownload bar*22:40
reisioqwizzical: oh okay22:40
reisioqwizzical: what client was it?22:40
qwizzicalHmm, I'm not sure I quite understand. What do you mean?22:41
tryingthisthanks reisio22:41
reisioµTorrent, Deluge, Transmission, etc.22:41
k1l_what program do you use, qwizzical22:41
reisiothe only reason I can think of for a torrent to say "download _failed_" is if your system ran out of space, really22:42
qwizzicalOh, well I downloaded the magnet link from yify, then put it on seedr, and that's about it22:42
reisiootherwise it would just keep trying to download, even if no progress was being made22:42
qwizzicalI don't use a client of any sort like bittorrent and the like22:42
reisiooh seedr is some web-based service?22:42
reisioif you have a storage limit, check you haven't exceeded it22:43
qwizzicalyeah, it basically converts the magnet link to a downloadable form (through seeds and stuff)22:43
Bashing-omeskatrem: Are you stuck at getting the 'lshw' to redirect to a pastebin site ?22:43
qwizzicalno, I'm way below the storage limit22:43
reisiowell, yeah that's what magnet links are for22:43
reisioif you haven't run out of resources, then the software has simply failed22:44
eskatremBashing-om: doing that now22:44
reisioseek out seedr's support system, or find a more reliable service22:44
qwizzicalso what do you think I should do?22:44
k1l_qwizzical: well, that sounds like its a seedr issue, not an ubuntu issue?22:44
reisiotake my advice, avoid things that talk about "the cloud"22:44
Bashing-omeskatrem: :) trying to help .22:44
qwizzicalk1_ no, it's definitely not a seedr issue. I think it's a problem with my computer, because this happened just this one time22:45
qwizzicalreisio haha why do you say that?22:45
reisioqwizzical: oh was the problem downloading an already-downloaded torrent contents from seedr to your computer, via http?22:45
qwizzicalYeah, I think so22:46
reisiookay well that can only likely be so many things22:46
qwizzicalhttps maybe, but yeah22:46
reisioI would suspect, in this order: seedr failed on their end, your isp cut you off, your router failed, you ran out of space locally22:46
k1l_qwizzical: where is the issue now? you can download from seedr to your pc? whar error did you get? was the internet connection resetted?22:46

jgcampbell300or maybe some kind of safemode boot .. i dont know22:56
akikqwizzical: have you checked at seedr that your torrent has been downloaded to 100% ?22:56
qwizzicalakik Basically I'm not able to download that "something". This has happened only once; I think it's because of the large file size22:56

Bashing-omgjWell . in such a case one can set "break points" when booting . But I do not have the direct expeience to say the when/how .23:00
eskatremBashing-om: hmm any pointer to start unity from tty1?23:01
Exterminadori mean, imagine that i have W10 on the laptop. and decide to install *buntu in a external drive. will anything happen related to bootloader of windows?23:01
bivoUbuntu-Mate 16.10. Wifi has been incredibly slow ever since some updates about a week ago, every other OS or device I try gets the full 700Kbps download, but can't seem to hold a stable connection over wifi, averaging 10-250Kbps with spikes to 450Kbps but sometimes complete drops of the connection.23:01
Bashing-omExterminador: Again, it depends on the install method that you choose, If it os a defailt standard : erase disk and install ubuntu" then the default is to install grub to the 1st recognized device (sda) .23:01
ExterminadorBashing-om: then, if i choose the external drive, all will be installed in there, even the bootloader?23:02
Bashing-omeskatrem: from grub or from TTY1 ?23:03
Bashing-omeskatrem: ' systemctl isolate graphical.target ' But That does much more than just start the GUI, it also stops everything that is not a dependency of graphical.target .23:04
Bashing-omExterminador: Best I can tell you to KNOW where grub will install is to use the "something else" install option . but ya need to know here what you are setting up . In something else you have the option to direct where grub installs to .23:06

Bashing-omeskatrem: For that matter ''startx' does not apply to upstart either .. old old old docs you are following .23:08
ic2000it worked for windows and other distros so i'm not sure why it wont work for ubuntu23:08
Exterminadorwhen i've tried it on windows, it said that my disk will change into dynamic or something like that23:09
eskatremhmm... I removed the ~/.Xauthority file, so now I can log in as my user name from the GUI, but I still have an empty screen (with mouse and the backgroundscreen I chose, though)23:09
eskatremBashing-om: hmm, startx, I knew that one when playing with debian (the computer I'm using to type this)23:09
Bashing-omExterminador: No .. in the leagacy partioning scheme these is a 4 primary partition limit . ( die yo addressing ) . the way arounf this limit is to create one of those primary partitions as 'extended" and in this extended partition on can then create an additional 128 "logical" partitions .23:10
spl33ni have macbook 2,1 and i install on it ubuntu 14.04 LTS and i upgrade to 16.04 32bits, but i have some issues with keyboard, on mac if i want to type "|" for example i use alt+shift+l but in ubuntu this not work correctly . i look many website and forum but i dont find fix for my issues all special char not work23:10
spl33nhelp please23:10
Exterminadoroh, i see. and afaik linux don't have problems on being installed into logical partitions23:11
Bashing-omExterminador: And of the Windows disk is converted to dynamic . it is then exclusive to Windows and nothing else will touch it !@23:12
Exterminadoryou mean i can create the partitions i want and dont be afraid of that the disk change to dynamic?23:12
Exterminadori'll be able still to install the OSes i want?23:13
Exterminador(and boot them properly)23:13
Bashing-omeskatrem: Let's try from a reboot to TTY1 ' dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ ; unity --reset-icons ; setsid unity ; systemd.unit=multi-user.target ' .23:14
eskatremBashing-om: what's that supposed to do?23:14
Bashing-omExterminador: Right, ubuntu will happily install to a logical partition :)23:14
Exterminadori wanna try several flavors at once23:15
Bashing-omeskatrem: reset the desktop and then start the GUI .23:15
Exterminadori was wondering how can i make enuff partitions to do that23:15
snowstormExterminador: why not using VM virtualbox from Oracle23:16
Bashing-omExterminador: Uh Huh .. long time ago others wondered same same .. and them smarty peeps came up with the 'extended' partition .23:16
Exterminadori have GParted installed. but i'm kinda newbie to this. all i know is to partition the disk in windows and i've partioned it into 3 W10, Xubuntu and the swap23:17
=== anonymous is now known as Guest38077
Exterminadorsnowstorm: my cpu don't support virtualization, so, VM will be extremly slow23:17
eskatremBashing-om: I ran sudo apt-get upgrade, it's taking a while :-/23:18
=== Guest38077 is now known as Anon_115
Exterminadori must read some tutorials to make partitions via GParted as extended23:18
Exterminadorany usefull link?23:18
Bashing-omExterminador: Nest to do Windows things from Windows . defrag X2, and then run checkdisk X2 when unallocated space is made from Windows . Then when installing ubuntu " something else" amd set up your extended/logical partitions . Is what I think .23:19
fcastilloI'm having a weird problem when trying to delete files on a different partition. When I access the partition directly, deleted files go to the Trash, when accessing the partition through a symlink on my home, Nautilus/Nemo say they can't do it and the file has to be deleted23:19
Bashing-om!dualboot | Exterminador23:19
ubottuExterminador: Dual boot instructions: x86/AMD64: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DualBoot/Windows - Macs: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro https://help.ubuntu.com/community/YabootConfigurationForMacintoshPowerPCsDualBoot23:19
Bashing-omeskatrem: " update upgrade is always a smart way to start :)23:21
eskatremBashing-om: ok, I ran your command, got lots of: `compiz (core)` - Info ...`, and then `Segemtnation fault (core dumped)23:21
ExterminadorAutomatic partition resizing (not recommended) -> why not?23:21
Bashing-omeskatrem: Ouch !! .. fresh install ??23:21
eskatremBashing-om: hmm it's couple of weeks old23:21
genewitchBurr-Brown from TI USB Audio CODEC causes ubuntu to hang when plugged in, anyone have any tips?23:22
Bashing-omeskatrem: Did you verify the .iso file when you made up the live install environmental ?23:23
eskatremthe distro came with the computer23:23
Bashing-omExterminador: Can not say to that last .. I no do Windows in many many years . I no longer know what to expect from a Windows situation .23:24
Exterminadorhow i do a screenshot in Xubuntu? :x23:25
Bashing-omeskatrem: K .. let's say that the manufactirer then did well and we get the more drastic here amd revert the GUI to defaults. sound good ?23:25
eskatremBashing-om: that's what I was looking to do!23:26
gde33can I get nautilus to tell me the  full path of a folder including the drive name? I'm trying to set the firefox cache folder but /media/foo/bar isn't working23:26
gde33it is not writing anything23:27
gde33about:config entry: browser.cache.disk.parent_directory23:27
Bashing-omeskatrem: Try ' rm ~/.gconf ~/.gconfd ~/.metacity ~/.compiz-1 ~/.config/compiz-1 ~/.config/dconf -rf ' ; reboot and let's "see" .23:27
eskatremI don't have .gconfd and ~/.gconf is a directory23:28
genewitcheskatrem: that;s what the -rf does23:28
eskatremok, I just have .compiz and .gconf23:29
Bashing-omeskatrem: Hummm .. that ending "-rf" should have taken care of " is a directory " . as r == recursive .23:29
eskatremBashing-om: right, I missed that. rebooting now23:30
deus_having some trouble with a renaming script. what i am trying to do is rename all avi files in list of directory after the directory that they are in. here is what i have, but it is not working as expected: find . -type d -not -empty -exec echo mv  \{\}/*.avi \{\}.avi \;\23:30
stan_man_canisn't it rm -rf [dir] ?23:30
stan_man_cannot rm [dir] -rf ?23:30
stan_man_cannot sure if that matters23:30
ic2000does anyone have any idea of how to fix my issue?23:30
qwizzicalhow do I include subtitles in my video player?23:31
genewitchic2000: usb?23:31
eskatremBashing-om: I rebooted, still get an empty GUI23:31
deus_it does not seem to be expanding the glob, do i need to escape it or put it in quotes or something?23:31
ic2000genewitch: yeah it's a usb adapter23:31
genewitchic2000: what's lsusb say it is23:31
Bashing-omstan_man_can: Yeah .. does not matter . is but a matter of human perspective . If it does make you feel the better I will edit it to your preference (??) .23:32
eskatremI rebooted, still got an empty GUI23:32
ExterminadorBashing-om: i can use GParted to shrink windows partition, move the unallocated space and add it to the extended partition that i already have, right?23:33
ic2000genewitch: https://bpaste.net/show/ded27293bf3923:33
papa_hi ppl23:34
eskatremhi papa23:34
papa_tnx for all23:34
Bashing-omExterminador: Well, many have with good results .. but I say again Windows tools for Windows file system . for best results.23:35
Exterminadori just dont wanna rebbot into Windows, then rebbot into Xubuntu. :P23:35
Bashing-omeskatrem: One last poke ' rm ~/.dmrc ; . then we consider re-installing the DE .23:35
papa_windows: planetsidede223:36
Bashing-omExterminador: Shrinking a partition means re-writting the partition table, make it the easier on the system with defrag, and that the system is happy with the new partition table with 'chkdsk; . Now that is what I think .23:37
ic2000genewitch: what does it mean?23:37
zeroraxHi, I am having trouble fixing a problem. I installed ubuntu-server on a laptop with 2 gpu's one intel one nvidia. ubuntu tries to use the nvidia card and i get a black screen immediately. I believe installing nvidia-current will solve this problem, I used a desktop live usb and chrooted into my ubuntu-server install but it won't resolve any DNS, i can only use IP's, which means I can't use the repos to install23:37
zeroraxnvidia-current. anyone know how I can make my chroot envirnment resolve dns?23:37
papa_hi man23:38
Bashing-omzerorax: How did you det up the chroot ? depends on that how to have DNS .23:38
eskatremBashing-om: ok how should I reinstall the DE? (I removed ~/.dmrc and rebooted, to no avail)23:39
zeroraxBashing-om, I bound /proc , /dev. and /sys and then chroot23:39
papa_im hack man from usa and setup wallpaper PUTIN23:40
zeroraxI'm not familiar with chroot, I've only used it once before and it was with very detailed instructions23:40
Bashing-omeskatrem: 'sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop ' Where for sure this is a (u)buntu install !23:40
ExterminadorBashing-om: i'll consier your opinion. and redo almost everything on windows. event thought, then i can use GParted to "play" with the remaining partitions, since i think it wont affect anything as it will be unallocated space23:40
CarlFKxenial, desktop, Network Manager - trying to setup a static IP:    ping  ... 64 bytes from ...  ping  From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable23:42

zeroraxBashing-om, any ideas?23:43
CarlFKpapa_: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23724930/ netstat -tsp23:44
CarlFK 23:44
zeroraxthere used to be a nosetmode boot flag that worked in order versions23:44
zeroraxbut 16.04 doesn't support it23:44
Bashing-omzerorax: ro directly answer one runs ' mount --bind /etc/resolv.conf /$CHROOT/run/resolvconf/resolv.conf ' . Hang on one and I get ya the chroot routine I use .23:44
Exterminadornext time i'll leave at least 100Gb of unallocated space on disk23:45
zeroraxBashing-om, i'll try that while you find your routine. i really appreciate your helping me23:45
deus_zerorax, have you tried just dropping to console when it boots to the black screen instead of messing around with chroot?23:45
deus_zerorax, i.e. ctrl-alt-f123:45
zeroraxdeus_, yes, that doesn't work, i believe the black screen is related to something that stops the boot sequence23:46
papa_s novim godom parnni23:46
zeroraxeverything i've read says this can be fixed on similar laptops by installing nvidia-current from the repo23:46
Bashing-omzerorax: Mine that is known to work ; ' sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt ; for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done - sudo chroot /mnt ' .23:46
zeroraxtbh, i'd rather disable the nvidia gpu sice it eats electricity and I don't need it for the way i will be using the computer23:47
ic2000uhh, genewitch you still here?23:47
CarlFKpapa_:   umm.. what?23:47
zeroraxthanks Bashing-om23:47
zeroraxand thanks for your input deus_23:47
ic2000eh ok, could someone else help me then23:48
Exterminadorjust one question: Partition: /dev/sda1; File System: nfts; Mount Point: n/a; Size: 9.77 GiB, Used: 327.24 MiB; Unused: 9.45 GiB; Flags: diag --> can i shrink this damn partition?23:48
deus_shrug, just an idea. i tend to overcomplicate things myself because i barely know what i'm doing, heh.23:48
zeroraxExterminador, you can shrink it, I'm not sure if you can do it from linux using gparted or if you need a windows23:49
Exterminadorwhat does that partition means?23:49
Exterminadorwhat's the purpose of it?23:49
zeroraxoh it's n 10gb... it's probably a recovery or efi partition23:50
genewitchic2000: is the ID 04d9:a061 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc. the wifi device? when you unplug it from USB and run lsusb again does that item disappear?23:50
Exterminadorbecause: Flags: boot is in /dev/sda223:50
zeroraxdon't shrink it23:50
genewitchBurr-Brown from TI USB Audio CODEC causes ubuntu to hang when plugged in, anyone have any tips? http://projectftm.com/index.php?75cb4d this is what /var/log/messages say when i plug it in23:50
papa_happy new yea from siberia23:50
Exterminadorzerorax: via GParted it says the Minimum size should be 328 MiB23:51
Bashing-omExterminador: Once Windows is happy happy happy, and you have the unabllocated space, in GParted you can play with that unallocated space to your heart's content .23:51
ExterminadorBashing-om: that's what i've thought23:52
Exterminadorwindows is a pain in the arse, but still i need it.23:52
zeroraxExterminador, it says that because that's how much data it has on it. it can't shrink beyond the point where it's full without losing data, but gparted is assuming the partition will never need more space for new data23:52
Bashing-omExterminador: "Size: 9.77 GiB" that is already tiny bu todaus standarfs .23:52
Exterminadorzerorax: copy that. i won't touch it23:53
ic2000genewitch: oh crap. u wanted the usb plugged in when i did it. i just redid it and this on reappeared "Bus 008 Device 003: ID 0cf3:20ff Atheros Communications, Inc. AR7010 (no firmware)"23:53
Bashing-omby todays*23:53
zeroraxif it's an EFI partition you could screw up your system and have to do a clean install of everyting23:53
ic2000so i'd assume it's that one, the no "firmware" thin makes sense too23:53
=== josh is now known as Guest23049
Exterminadorzerorax: better not touch it. my hdd is not in good shape already, i guess23:53
Guest23049how do i add a link in my desktop applications dropdown (mate de) for a program i just installed (liteide)?23:54
Exterminadorbtw, what's the smarctl command to check the disk, to see if it's dying or not?23:54
zeroraxExterminador, yeah, and if you DO decide you NEED to resize, it, don't shrink it to the minimum, leave considerable space to be used in future23:54
zeroraxI don't know too much about EFI, but I know that it needs it's own partition in most use cases23:55
Exterminadorzerorax: i also think it's the efi thing23:55
genewitchic2000: you need the firmware23:56
zerorax10gb seems like more than it needs, but at some point someone decided that it should be that big for a reason23:56
Bashing-omExterminador: As you have asked about 4 primary partition ,imits , this is not a EFI drive/system / RFI dupports 128 partitions by default.23:56
ic2000genewitch: yeah but how can i obtain it?23:56
ic2000genewitch: it seemed to installed itself on windows and other distros23:56
genewitchic2000: apt install linux-firmware23:56
genewitchic2000: usually23:56
ic2000genewitch: okay. do i restart after?23:56
genewitchcouldn't hurt23:56
VillagerWassup fellas!23:57
ic2000alright, thanks man. if i don't come back then it worked :)23:57
sdasdaguys i have a problem installing ubuntu, can anyone help me please?23:57
sdasdai need my computer23:57
ExterminadorBashing-om: i have a partition with 1.02GiB of unallocated space23:57
snowstormsdasda: explain problem23:58
Exterminadoreven GParted don't let me create another partition. i have the swap on the extended partition. can i add that 1.02 GiB to the swap?23:58
sdasdasnowstorm i put the iso on a usb stick and i clicked on the install ubuntu thing after rebooting my computer, i did all the steps and when the installation started, it got stuck on ''getting data from time server'' i restarted my computer and tried to install again but now all i get is a black screen with a blinking dash after i click install ubunt23:59
sdasdasnowstorm and now my harddrive is all wiped so i dont have windows on it23:59
Exterminadormy machine have 4Gb ram, so i've created the swap with 4Gb. will that 1.02GiB make any difference on the performance?23:59
