sepehrHey EveryBody?00:00
zeroraxusing swap creates a huge decrease in performance00:00
FrostyByteshi sepehr!00:00
genewitchzerorax: depends00:00
genewitchzerorax: depends on if OOM crashes decrease performance more00:00
zeroraxI have 8gb ram, and don't use swap, but I don't do anything that ever requires more than 8gb ram00:00
ic2000genewitch: doesn't seem like it worked00:00
genewitchzerorax: try compiling libreoffice00:00
FrostyByteszerorax: using swap can also create a huge decrease in OOMs and outright freezes00:01
Exterminadorzerorax: but when i installed Xubuntu it said it's better to use swap00:01
genewitchic2000: lsusb says no firmware still?00:01
zeroraxgenewitch, like I said _I_ don't do anything that requires more00:01
k1l_Exterminador: using swap is very slow. compare the speed of ram with the speed of a hdd.00:01
ic2000genewitch: yeah still says  no firmware00:01
zeroraxlots of people need more than 8gb ram... those people should buy more ram00:01
sdasdasnowstorm please help me im desperate00:01
FrostyBytesyour system reliability will still be higher if you have some swap enabled as headroom00:01
genewitchzerorax: i don't have a lawn, therefore no one needs a lawnmower00:01
snowstormsdasda: when restarting you are sure it does from the live installation usb drive?00:01
sepehri have 8 gigs of ram . i also have 20 gb of swap space , im running backtrack + mac os sierra and mean while im using ubuntu00:01
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 \;\ results: nothing actually gets renamed. here is the output: http://pastebin.com/vaJfesZY but it isn't actually moving anything.00:01
Exterminadorzerorax: but is swap used anytime, if not needed?00:01
sdasdasnowstorm i dont know what that means, how do i check?00:01
k1l_Exterminador: swap is a backup if the ram is full. and its needed if you want to use hibernation (suspend2disk)00:02
snowstormsdasda are you using this computer at this moment?00:02
zeroraxExterminador, there is a setting somewhere called swapiness, which tells linux how much to rely on swap, if you set it to a certain value it will only use swap when memory is full00:02
genewitchic2000: oh ok00:02
sdasdasnowstorm im talking to you through my other computer00:02
Exterminadori see00:03
sepehrGuys is Using IRC Safe ?00:03
Exterminadornow, how do i do a check to my hdd via smartmontools?00:04
snowstormsdasda: make sure your computer boots from the usb either by setting boot order in bios or by choosing boot device during post00:04
zeroraxsepehr, safe for what?00:04
Exterminadorsepehr: nowadays nothing is safe. govs spies all your data00:04
GroundZero1sepehr, yes00:04
GroundZero1sepehr, it is encrypted00:04
snowstormsepehr: might wanna use tails00:04
sepehrGroundZero1 What about the fact that any body can see my ip address ?00:05
eskatremBashing-om: ok, somehow I installed xfce4 and then I managed to make it work (with xfce4), thanks a lot for your help00:05
GroundZero1sepehr, who said that? i cant see your ip adress00:05
GroundZero1sepehr, i think the admin of the channel can't either00:05
genewitchic2000: what version of ubuntu00:05
sepehrGroundZero1, Thanks didnt know that00:05
genewitchic2000: the wifi thing wants to be a mass storage device (i.e. it's getting mounted); there's a few workarounds but it depends on what version of ubuntu. You can try unmounting it (check by typing mount in a command line)00:06
GroundZero1sepehr, i was inspecting the irc packets with wireshark..nothing that you could read..everything encrypted..it would an expert to crack your messages00:06
sdasdasnowstorm i just did that00:06
Bashing-omeskatrem: man after my own heart .. I too like xfce ..  in it much easier to work with and to configure .00:06
genewitchsepehr: sepehr@
sdasdasnowstorm it still gives me a black screen with blinking dash00:06
GroundZero1Bashing-om, i like mate..so easy..so compact..so efficient00:07
genewitchsepehr: lol, you need to register with nickserv and possibly get your host masked like mine00:07
Exterminadorand to help more with security, use the ssl port of freenode00:07
GroundZero1genewitch, is this his real ip?00:07
ic2000genewitch: how can i check00:07
Exterminadorthat will help00:07
sepehri can verify thats my real ip00:07
genewitchic2000: type mount in a command line, pastebin it00:07
papa_im from russia. Happy New year ppl ! =)00:07
Bashing-omExterminador: Let's all know what we are working with presently .pastebin ' sudo parted -l ; sudo fdisk -lu ' and we all get on the same page .00:07
sepehrExterminador, How should i make it more safe ?00:08
snowstormsdasda: did you get anything before the blinking dash.... is dash preceed with some letters/numbers?00:08
sdasdai got the loading ubuntu logo00:08
ic2000genewitch: https://bpaste.net/show/6073f950719000:08
eskatremBashing-om: probably a problem with Ubuntu desktop. thanks a lot00:08
genewitchic2000: oh and for whate version of ubuntu it's cat /etc/*release*00:08
snowstormsdasda is it loading/booting?00:09
sdasdasnowstorm i dont know, there is just a black screen and a blinking dash upper right of the screen00:09
sdasdasnowstorm thats all thats happening with it00:09
ic2000genewitch: DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.1000:09
Bashing-omeskatrem: Yeah. no doubt now . but I would have expected the RE-install of the DE to have corrected :(00:09
ic2000genewitch: there is another thing i looked up00:11
ic2000apparently with my adapters, they support the broadcom drivers00:11
ic2000so if you can show me how to install them00:11
ic2000that may work00:11
snowstormsdasda so noting else is happening?00:11
sdasdasnowstorm no00:11
genewitchic2000: apt search broadcom00:12
Bashing-omic2000: "support the broadcom drivers" briadcom is proprietary.00:12
Bashing-om!bcm | ic200000:12
ubottuic2000: Help with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx00:12
deus_hrmm, ok.00:13
genewitchic2000: i have an ath9k somewhere but i think i had to compile something. there's a solution for debian, so maybe rephrase your question in here like this: "lsusb shows Atheros AR7010 (no firmware); ubuntu 16.10 wifi how?" or similar, i am sure someone in here knows exactly what tod o00:13
snowstormsdasda: my guess is that it doesn't load from the usb installation stick.  Try to redo your usb with a verified ISO00:13
Exterminadorwho can take a look at this and tell me what to think about my hdd? http://paste.ubuntu.com/23725039/00:13
snowstormI must leave pc for now.  bbl00:13

Exterminadorif it's cool or it's better to think in having a new one00:14

zeroraxis there a package that can compile an entire ubuntu system from source using compiler optimizations specific to your hardware?00:22
genewitchzerorax: yeah it's called gentoo00:23
zeroraxgenewitch I meant something automated, so non-tech people can do it00:23
genewitchnon tech people wouldn't need those optimizations00:23
genewitchbecause 90% of it is not using dracut00:24

Mr1NKesjkfgsdjkfh : are have problem with efi booting ?!00:29
Exterminadori've heard SSD are faster (but not so reliable as HDD)00:29
Bashing-omExterminador: Maybe yes, I am still awaiting a resoponse from my ping for a second opinion on the drive health .00:31
PozzoExterminador: SSD are much faster and as reliable as HDD => there is no HDD reliable00:31
genewitchSSD will outlive most of the parts in your computer00:31
ExterminadorPozzo: so, i should go for one?00:31
Bashing-omExterminador: SSD technology has come a lomg way . They are even more reliable and longer lasting than a hard drive !00:31
PozzoHDD are also reliable to store data than fog on a glasses00:31
energizergoogle did a long study of this ^00:31
PozzoExterminador: yes you can go with SSD00:32
PozzoExterminador: if you are really anxious you can use SSD for your system and store your /home on a legacy HDD00:32
ExterminadorPozzo: i'm not much into this. but, SSD lifetime is higher/equal/lower than HDD? do you can tell me?00:33
PozzoExterminador: a recent SSD will be equally lifetime00:33

TheGoose_Exterminador: Im pretty sure its on launchpad, so you can just apt install it00:38
Bashing-omExterminador: " < daftykins> ooh yes '3 current_pending_sector' so that suggests the data shexould be copied off that disk for a backup, then the drive fully zeroed to see how many bad sectors are encountered - they might all remap, or a huge number might be found and reallocated... but until it's done, likely that disk will keep causing trouble to the OS, software or user data "00:39
genewitchhow do i see what serial ports are active?00:40
ExterminadorBashing-om: jeez. i've recently formatted the entire drive, before install w10 and xubuntu (both x64)00:41

PozzoExterminador: do you have checked the smart properties of your disk ?00:42
TheGoose_Exterminador: SMART report?00:42
ExterminadorTheGoose_: yes, apt install chromium-browser will work (at least on Xubuntu 16.04.1)00:42
ExterminadorPozzo: it's smarctl -a /dev/sda that i've pasted00:42
TheGoose_Exterminador: Pretty sure you need smartmontools to check it00:43
Bashing-omExterminador: Sometimes zero'n out a drive will work wonders . Is all I can say .00:43
TheGoose_but you can install it and run sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdX to get info00:43
ExterminadorBashing-om: you mean i need to format it again? and reinstall all again?00:44
Bashing-omExterminador: Yeah, even then there is a degree of doubt about the life of that drive .00:45
ExterminadorBashing-om: i've formatted it at 3-4 weeks ago. so, i should assume that it's in real bad shape already00:45
Bashing-omExterminador: What ya need to do is zero out that drive . takes about an hour per 100 Gigs - depending on how fast of a processor you have .00:46
zeroraxhow hard is it to contribute code to ubuntu?00:46
Exterminadorit's a Dual Core T4300 @ 2.10Ghz00:46
TheGoose_zerorax: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment00:46
Pozzozerorax: try to contribute for translate documentation first00:46
Bashing-omExterminador: 'Bout an hour per 100 Gigs to write 0's , then install and run the smart test once more .00:47
ExterminadorBashing-om: and how do i do that? i've formatted the drive while installing windows.00:48
Bashing-omExterminador: Bear in mind that 2 people have advised that the drive as is is un-reliable .00:48
zeroraxbleh, this looks complicated00:49
zeroraxI hate when developers make it hard to contribute code to their projects00:49
Bashing-omExterminador: Formatting is not the same as writiing zero's . one does that operation from a live ubuntu with the 'dd' command .00:50

Bashing-omExterminador: I have had varing degrees of success with zero'd drives . maybe yes, maybe not so yes . But if you value your system and it's data, ya gots to do it ( dd) . Else get the manufacture's test suite and see what the drive's manufacture thinks of the drive's health .00:53
PozzoExterminador: have you tried smartcl long test ?00:54
PozzoExterminador: if the test is not good... you should put the hdd to trash... it happens that smartcl says "it's not faulty... and in fact it is"00:55

FinalXwith syntax highlighting and the sort :)01:10
k00l3th4nshantorn: That is a whole process, not just a few commands. Google it and that should get you started. What distro are you using?01:10
k1l_shantorn: installing the nvidia driver from the ubuntu repo01:10
shantornubuntu mate 16.1001:10
RonWhoCareswhere is root's home directory in 16.1001:10
mukluksRageCraze: yup, cos the web is text01:10
k00l3th4nRageCraze: Vim is a text editor + some. Are you looking for a gui?01:10
ExterminadorBashing-om: is this: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX (where sdX is the device of the drive to delete.)01:10
RageCrazeim actually looking for an IDE that would highlight text and such01:11
RageCrazelike dreamweaver on pc you know01:11
RageCrazeon windows**01:11
k00l3th4nRageCraze: Try Geany, that's a good gui.01:11
RageCrazeinstalling that now. any helpful tips/ keyboard shortcuts i should learn to easy use this OS?01:12
xangua!root | RonWhoCares01:12
ubottuRonWhoCares: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo01:12
k00l3th4nRageCraze: You will just have to do the research. There is more to it than can be explained.01:13
RageCrazewill do thanks! i love that i just have to access the ''linux store'' to download anything, makes me feel like im using android :D01:14
RonWhoCaresxangua: I am running a background process at startup that enables scanning on my Brother MFC-435W.  The process is owned by 'root'.  I am trying to figure out where the scanned files got saved01:14
k00l3th4nRageCraze: That the whole concept about open source. Linux is great! And has the best community for help.01:14
RonWhoCaresubottu: The reason I am asking is 'root' is displayed on the MFC's screen for me to choose the destination computer01:15
RageCrazeyeah im really thankful for you guys, some guy helped me alot today, my installation was stuck in a black screen and i almost lost hope after hours of research but he made it work01:15

bazhang##programming nem12201:25
k1l_RageCraze: the key right of space bar01:25
RageCrazeohh there it is!01:25

RageCrazebut wtf why cant i use the same as i use on windows01:25
ExterminadorRageCraze: no idea01:25
bazhangRageCraze, no cursing here01:25
RageCrazehmm thats weird, but that should be ok to get used to01:25
RageCrazeim new here u know01:25
k1l_RageCraze: that is keyboard layout specific. so see what layout you use on ubuntu and which one on windows01:26
RageCrazeill try and see01:26
ExterminadorRageCraze: i use the same key shortcut on Windows01:26

ExterminadorBashing-om: sure. just need too find how to create a backup of windows01:28
Exterminadornever done it before. and W10 is way complicated01:29
RageCrazehow do i open the ''terminal'' in ubuntu?01:29
k1l_RageCraze: ctrl+alt+t is the shortcut01:29
ExterminadorRageCraze: Ctrl+Alt+T01:29
kk4ewtpress the superkey type terminal01:29
k00l3th4nRageCraze: You need to go look in your keyboard shortcuts. Most of the time it's ALT T or Shift ALT T01:29
RageCrazei got it with ctrl alt t01:30
k1l_RageCraze: or you use the "dash". press windows button (called super key on ubuntu) and then type something01:30
k00l3th4nRageCraze: or Ctrl Alt T01:30
Exterminadorwith major keyboards with the Windows key symbol, is WinKey+T01:30
ic2000hello, i'm having an issue where no matter what i try (installing various amount of firmware and so on) i cannot get my wifi adapter to work with ubuntu. it recognises the device but claims there's no firmware for it: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR7010 (no firmware)01:30
k1l_Exterminador: no, that opens the trash01:30
k00l3th4nRageCraze: You can go mod you keyboard shortcuts if you don't like defaults.01:31
Exterminadork1l_: on my keyboard, it opens terminal01:31
Exterminadormaybe it's the layout01:31
k1l_with holding the super key you get a list of shortcuts.01:31
k1l_Exterminador: what ubuntu desktop do you use?01:31
RageCrazesure how do i mod it?01:31
Exterminadork1l_: Xubuntu01:31
RageCrazebtw im trying to install something now, and after i type the command, it asks for my password, but nothing gets typed when i press my keys, is this normal?01:32
k1l_RageCraze: yes. its hidden01:32
RageCrazeso i have to just type?01:32
k1l_yes. type blindly.01:32
Exterminadoryes, RageCraze. that's the normal beahviour. even thought you can change it to appear "*" but i dont remember how01:32
RageCrazewhats wrong with this?01:33
k00l3th4nRageCraze: Go to system settings and then keyboard. There will be a tab for shortcuts.01:33
RageCrazecopied from the terminal after i put in my password01:33
ExterminadorRageCraze: try: sudo su01:33
Exterminadorthen type the passwd01:33
k1l_RageCraze: do you have another program opened, that uses the package manager?01:34
k1l_Exterminador: stio01:34
k1l_Exterminador: stop01:34
k1l_RageCraze: dont do that01:34
RageCrazedont do what im confused now01:34
k1l_RageCraze: dont run Exterminador commands. read the errormessage you see in terminal: do you have another program opened that uses the ubuntu pacakge manager?01:34
k1l_Exterminador: setting a root password is not supported and will not help that user in any way.01:35
RageCrazei dont know whats ubuntu package manager, but how do i chek?01:35
RageCrazetrying to install git by typing sudo apt-get install git curl01:35
k1l_RageCraze: do you have the updater or the software center opened?01:35
RageCrazeyes the updater!01:35
k1l_RageCraze: is it running?01:35
k00l3th4nRageCraze: You must have another package manager open. If you have a gui open and terminal, you will get that error.01:36
RageCrazeyes i just closed the updater and the installation started! this is a great community, i hope i will become better at this and be able to help people to!01:36
k1l_RageCraze: you can only have one program manage the software packages at a time. so the system doesnt get confused and saves wrong states of installed software01:36
Bashing-omRageCraze: All it takes is time and effort :)01:37
k00l3th4nRageCraze: That's is how the community works. You gain knowledge and in return share that knowledge with other noobs.01:37
Exterminadork1l_: when i installed the Xubuntu, it asked to set a password. since then, i use "sudo su". so, sometimes i get confused and i've misread the pastebin. sorry for that.01:38
RageCrazeyeah i know, thats my goal guys01:38
RageCrazenow after i installed git, do i just use the terminal?01:38
RageCrazeor does it get installed somewhere01:38
k1l_Exterminador: sudo -i, if you want to use a root shell.01:38
k00l3th4nRageCraze: Yes, you can just use the terminal after installing git.01:39
k1l_RageCraze: if you use the official packages from the repo. ist properly installed then01:39
=== [ADN] is now known as _ADN_
RageCrazehow do i start it? like i wanna configure git settings now, what do i do?01:39
RageCrazehmm i cant find anything called git on the pc01:39
k1l_git is a terminal command01:40
k00l3th4nUse the man pages --> type in your terminal man git01:40
Exterminadork1l_: thanks for the advise. since i've started to navigate into linux world, everyone have said to type "sudo su". i appreciate all the help you give.01:41
k1l_Exterminador: yes, not using root is part of the ubuntu security setup. other distros handle that differently.01:42
k00l3th4nRageCraze: Also, get familar with weechat. Here is the quick starters guide --> http://www.weechat.org/files/doc/stable/weechat_quickstart.en.html01:43
FrostyBytesI would say not using root is more of a safety net than a real security measure01:43
RageCrazeill try that thanks!01:43
nedstarkthere are graphical git clients, like smartgit, git-cola, giteye, giggle, gitg, and gitkraken01:43
RageCrazeholy *** it was so easy to install git on linux? i had a lot of problems with it on windows!01:43
RageCrazeomg i love this and ive been using this for almost 15 min!01:43
Exterminadornow, i have another stupid question. why, when i installed Xubuntu in dual boot with windows, when booting the laptop, it appears 4 options on the screen to boot. why those 4? why not just *buntu & windows?01:44
k1l_RageCraze: that is the advantage of having that huge official package repos.01:44
RageCrazeyeah! its really good im loving this already!01:44
RageCrazeand i love that i can use chrome here, only thing missing is google drive01:44
nedstarkit sees the windows recovery partition separately from windows01:44
RageCrazebut i can use on web01:44
k1l_Exterminador: for debugging reasons there are older kernels and a recovery entry. and a memtest for the ram01:45
nedstarkyou can use google drive through the browser01:45
Exterminadork1l_: but is it possible to install it without the recovery and memtest entries? or not really?01:46
k00l3th4nRageCraze: I started a private buffer with you. Check your buffers.01:46
k1l_Exterminador: you can make grub not displaying those other options01:46
nedstarkits ironic that google has neglected making a google drive client when most of their workers' desktops are linux desktops01:46
Exterminadorhum. grub customizer will do the job?01:47
k1l_Exterminador: or you look at the scripts yourself.01:47
RageCrazewhats buffer i dont know how01:48
Exterminadorthat's an idea. another thing. each user account can have is own env language?01:48
Exterminadori mean, i like to work with it in EN. but my wife dont understand anything of EN01:49
k00l3th4nRageCraze: Type these commands one @ a time in --> /mouse enable and then /script install buffers.pl01:49
Exterminadorso, she can setup PT to her displaying lang?01:50
k00l3th4nRageCraze: buffers.pl will give you a side view of your buffers.01:51
xanguanedstark: RageCraze haven't tested it myself www.webupd8.org/2016/03/use-gnome-318-google-drive-integration.html?m=101:51
RageCrazeohhh ill try that now!01:51
RageCrazebuffers.pl? where do i type that01:51
RageCrazeis there a way to hide the side bar when using full screen on an application?01:52
k00l3th4nRageCraze: close this buffer with /close and then in the weechat buffer type those commands. Then you can rejoin this channel.01:53
nedstarkxangua, thanks01:53
k00l3th4nRageCraze: I'm not sure if you can hide it or not. Never tried...01:53

Ben64thedanyes: can you be more specific03:51
just1bucki do NOT use windows but i bought a wincleaner usb drive for just 1 dollar in the hope that i would be able to use it as a usb flash drive under GNU/Linux. is it possible?03:51
Ben64just1buck: probably03:52
just1buck http://pasted.co/0959c99403:52
kk4ewtwhat size is it03:52
Ben64seems more like no now03:53
thedanyesBen64: well. I used the little remote desktop configuration applet and then I tried to connect. first i tried remotely after configuring port forwarding on my router. then I tried from another machine on my lan with the tightvnc client.03:53
Ben64thedanyes: ps aux | grep vino03:53
thedanyesBen64: I tried starting the vino-server from a terminal to try to see the output and what might be wrong, but it doesn't even register incoming connection attempts.03:53
thedanyesBen64: it does show up in netstat -ap4n as listening on 5900 though03:54
Ben64what does netstat say exactly03:54
thedanyestcp        0      0  *               LISTEN      4070/vino-server03:55
Ben64looks like it works03:55
thedanyeswhen i try to connect from tightvnc client on my local machine, it says the remote machine is not responding, or something like that03:56
Ben64try using nmap on your local ip03:56
thedanyesrather, from my *other* machine, not from the same PC...03:56
thedanyes5900/tcp open  vnc03:57
Ben64it works03:58
thedanyesyeah? well I don't know what else would be the problem then...03:58
thedanyesI can ping this PC from my other PC...03:58
Ben64either network or user problem03:58
Ben64try nmap from other pc03:59
thedanyesI just tried PuTTY from the other PC, raw connection on port 590003:59
thedanyestimed out03:59
Ben64why putty03:59
thedanyesit's Windows.03:59
Ben64still doesn't make sense04:00
thedanyesno? I tried TightVNC client and that didn't work04:00
Ben64try nmap04:00
thedanyesnmap requires winpcap and a bunch of bullshit04:03
FrostyBytesuse tcpdump on the linux machine to see what it is getting on the network04:04

just1buckBedn64, i am desktop newbie and to a desktop newbie the information on http://pasted.co/0959c994 does not explain in plain English why the wincleaner usb device can not be used as a flash drive.04:38
kk4ewtread the page you linked its not a flash drive its a rom drive04:39
FrostyBytesjust1buck: the wincleaner declares itself to the OS as a USB CD-ROM drive. so you can't write to it, even though it may use flash internally04:42
kk4ewtFrostyBytes, its a ROM04:42
cfhowlettone808, stop that. you already know this channel is english only.  play somewhere else04:42
just1buckkk4ewt, a bog standard usb flash drive can be formated as CD DIVE (iso9660). For instance, to create a usb flash drive  that can boot a GNU/Live distro04:42
kk4ewtjust1buck,  that is a ROM can only be written once04:43
kk4ewtand it has been04:43
FrostyByteskk4wet: how do you know it's a ROM? it takes a lot more capital to make a real ROM versus using an off the shelf flash part04:43

Random832and what are the package names for a successful install of grub 2? "grub2" gives me dependency errors05:56
Bashing-omRandom832: What release are you in reference to ?05:56
Random832everything i can find indicates that grub2 is the normal version05:57
Random832but i get these errors http://paste.ubuntu.com/23726225/05:57
Random832ok it looks like the package i need might be grub-efi-amd64?05:59
Random832i just don't want to screw this up and not be able to boot, since my attempt to make a live usb failed05:59
hicoleriI shut down my computer using "systemctl shutdown". Now, when I do so systemctl kills all of the currently running applications and then shuts down the computer. Because systemctl kills the applications, any new configurations made to the applications is lost.06:01
hicoleriso, how do I make systemctl send term signals to applications instead of directly killing them?06:01
Bashing-omRandom832: " sysop@x1604:~$ grub-install --version >> grub-install (GRUB) 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.2 " .06:01
The__GooseSo, i have a weird issue06:02
The__GooseI have a USB mouse, and wireless headset. Everytime I plug the dongle in for the headset, my mouse stops working correctly06:03
The__GooseI cant click, but can still move mouse06:03
Bashing-omRandom832: Try ' sudo apt install grub-pc grub-common ' .06:04
Random832no i think i've figured it out06:05
Random832"grub2" was an older transitional package name06:05
Random832and "grub" is still grub 1 for some reason06:05
Random832i think a lot of people don't ever have to see these things because the installer sets it up and they never change anything06:05

cfhowlettUbuntuDude, aptoncd is the easiest way I know.06:23
cfhowlettbut for a specific package06:23
UbuntuDudeI donno why but on it's not showing installed packages here on xenial x6406:24
cfhowlettapt-get install -s <packagename>      will simulate the operation.  capture the output of identified packages and put that in your apt-get download06:24

jnewtI have two versions of go installed.  one at /usr/bin/go and another at /usr/local/go.  the one at /usr/local/go was installed manually from the website.  i want it to be the default and only version.06:38
jnewt$which go gives the other (/usr/bin/go).  i'd like to remove that one (it's an older version).06:39

jnewtshould i just delete the folder /usr/bin/go ?06:43
ObrienDavei wouldn't because the menu launcher would still point to that one06:44
Ben64jnewt: you should install things properly06:45
jnewtBen64: I reviewed the install instructions after finding the issue.  I believe I have followed them properly and ended up with the install at /usr/local/go as expected.  i had previously installed with apt (which resulted in usr/bin/go I think).  I am not convnced I have done something improperly yet.06:48

UbuntuDudewhy in heavens VLC depends on all flightgear libraries?07:16
ObrienDaveflightgear depends on VLC libraries for sound and such07:17
UbuntuDudesame question goes into #vlc .. I think that is the right place to ask07:17
UbuntuDudeObrienDave: well that is why I was surprised too when I looked into apt install vlc dependencies07:18
ObrienDaveoh well07:18
UbuntuDudeapt install vlc >>> The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: flightgear-data-ai flightgear-data-aircrafts flightgear-data-all flightgear-data-base flightgear-data-models07:20
EriC^^that's saying it wants to remove them07:21
cfhowlettUbuntuDude, what was your exact command to install vlc?07:22
EriC^^something other than vlxc pulled them in and now its gone07:22
cfhowlett^^^^ this ^^^^07:22
priporgwhy auto install packages you no longer need? strange how ubuntu works07:22
cfhowlettpriporg, no that's the point; he actually did something to trigger their installation07:23
EriC^^priporg: package a was installed and it auto installed them as dependencies, package a got removed07:23
UbuntuDudecfhowlett: apt install -s vlc07:23
UbuntuDudeit was about downloading vlc and its all dependencies if you remember07:24
UbuntuDudewhat I wanted is installing the whole thing offline07:24
cfhowlettUbuntuDude, I just ran apt install --reinstall -s vlc      http://paste.ubuntu.com/23726431/07:25
UbuntuDudeso if the libraries are automatically installed and no longer required (WHY the heck is telling me that?)07:25
priporgvlc is the package that was installed with a bunch of dependencies (auto installed and no longer required). Weird.07:25
UbuntuDudewell, that is a biased operating system then07:26
ducasseUbuntuDude: it is telling you that so you can remove them (with 'apt autoremove')07:27
priporgUbuntuDude, It will always auto install dependencies whether you need it or not. you can remove dependencies that are no longer required, but you still run the risk it may not work.07:28

wiselydoesitTor routes your data via 6 random people to mask origin, a VPN connects directly to a single server which then becomes your internet facing IP address, thats about as much as i can simplify it and as ducasse says this is #ubuntu.  you should try ##networking or something.08:16

elias_aFirefly67: AFAIK it is not different.15:00
geirhacfoch: A few notes: 1. Most of the variable names should be lowercased. 2. Make sure you test if cd succeeds before carrying on. 3. Quote expansions to avoid wordsplitting and pathname expansion. 4. Use [[ and (( rather than [. 5. Use printf rather than echo. 6. Don't put -i in the shebang15:01

wamHi, I'm migrating a xenial from a md-raid on a server to a ssd built into the server. I copied all over, partitioned and chroot+update-grub'd. All went well, however, the server still boots from /dev/md0 instead of the new SSD. Do I have to destroy md0 (or its boot installation) or can I somehow decide which device has precedence?15:17

marty74Hi. I've got a question concerning the power button handling when the screen is locked. Which program handles the power button in this case? I've configured the power button to suspend the system when pressed in the system settings. But this only works when I'm logged in and the screen is not locked.15:42
marty74So I always have to unlock the screen to make the power button work. As a workaround I've modified powerbtn.sh to always suspend the system, but this is a very bad hack15:42
jayjocan i remove syslog or should i truncate it after a certain point for something? It looks like it has a graphics card error that is filling it multiple times per second15:42

mmalakchiEriC^^: Last few questions. Right now I connected to default repository? and how to chack this?17:20
mmalakchiEriC^^: Last few questions. Right now I connected to default repository? and how to check this?17:21
EriC^^sruli: ioria we need to get the line number that has a date in it in the mainlog and parse that date, then if it isn't less we have to look for the next one17:21
ioriaEriC^^, also different days...17:21
EriC^^mmalakchi: yes the i3 stuff should be from the main repository17:21
EriC^^ioria: the days doesn't matter we only care about the first line17:22
sruliEriC^^: ioria:here is the filename and some content https://paste.fedoraproject.org/518670/77732148/17:22
EriC^^the different day is going to be the next one anyways, right sruli ?17:22
mmalakchiEriC^^: Great! could you please tell how to check that I'm now connected to default repository?17:23
sruliEriC^^: what i am saying is that i found some log files do continue logging the next day in previous days file17:23
EriC^^mmalakchi: for i3 packages?17:23
ducassemmalakchi: 'apt update' lists all repos it connects to.17:23
sruliEriC^^: so if my log start at 01:00:00 and continues to next day 01:01:00 its gonna be a problem17:24
EriC^^sruli: why?17:24
sruliEriC^^: did you see my last paste?17:24
EriC^^we're going to shove it in the right order in the main log17:24
mmalakchiThank EriC^^:, ducasse !!!17:25
sruli23:56:44 is from 2015-11-15. 00:00:28 is from next day, withut any date with the timestamp how will we know its from next day?17:25
EriC^^sruli: we won't need to, we'll take it as a whole17:25
EriC^^log has day 4 and day 5, we'll cram it in the main log between day3 and daywhatever17:26
EriC^^and in the end it should end up as day1 day2 day3 day4 etc17:26
pwn[19:24] <pwn> The time in my desktop 19:24 is different from the time from the 'date' command [19:24] <pwn> the correct time is the one in desktop [19:24] <pwn> how do i make the clocks be the same?17:27
mmalakchiThank you EriC^^:, ducasse: !!!17:27
EriC^^sruli: it might not work though17:27

xanguaMorning everyone, one more time getting suspend to work, restarted, suspend no longer works... This happens with lubuntu16.04, Xubuntu, Ubuntu mate (live session) here is my suspend log: paste.ubuntu.com/2372788217:27
sruliEriC^^: how? we have 2 files locally and 2 remote files. both have logs starting 01-01-17 at 00:00:01 1 finishes at 22:00:00 the other at 01:01:00 next day, how are we merging this? according to time will put it in the wrong place17:28
ubottunikolai: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».17:28
EriC^^sruli: oh, yeah that's a problem if they have the same date :/17:30
EriC^^sruli: we'll have to add something that if it finds the exact date there it uses the actual time to add the log17:30
sruliEriC^^: dream ends right there ;-)17:30
EriC^^not really, just more work :D17:31
onlais there a default password for root on ubuntu? Can I login as root on default ubuntu (or linux mint) system?17:32
EriC^^sruli: ioria if we split it up between the 3 of us, it won't be that bad i guess17:32
sruliEriC^^: it does not put the new date in the file... the only way is if we can somehow tell the script to check for any-time after midnight if we already have after midnight before...17:32
EriC^^onla: no, root is disabled by default17:32
onlaalrity thankns EriC^^17:33
EriC^^sruli: yeah if it finds the same date in the logfile in the main file, it resorts to checking the time stuff and puts it in the right place17:33
pwnmake 'date' and my desktop time are different17:34
pwnhow do i fix it?17:34
EriC^^pwn: settings > time & date17:34
pwnEriC^^: its showing the correct time in that menu17:35
pwnBut file creating time is different..17:35
pwnlike the system is using a different mechanism17:35
EriC^^what does "date" show in the terminal?17:35
pwnMon Jan  2 12:35:58 EST 201717:36
EriC^^is it correct?17:36
pwnIn the menu you told me: Its set to grab automatically from internet, time is 7:36 pm, location israel17:36
pwnthe menu has the correct time17:36
pwndate time is incorrect and not consistent with the time in the desktop menu17:36
sruliEriC^^: ioria: here is a log file for this chat which goes over to next day, http://www.pastefile.com/Mlp6qL it goes over at line 772417:38
EriC^^pwn: try sudo hwclock --debug17:38
=== me is now known as Guest56368
pwnTime read from Hardware Clock: 2011/01/02 22:39:12 Hw clock time : 2011/01/02 22:39:12 = 1294007952 seconds since 1969 Sun 02 Jan 2011 05:39:12 PM EST  -0.766876 seconds17:39
EriC^^can someone else try the sudo hwclock --debug command?17:41
EriC^^(mine's meddled with)17:41
DJonesEriC^^: Will do17:41
ioriasruli,  yep, without the day tho... only 15 Nov17:41
EriC^^DJones: thank you17:41
DJonesEriC^^: http://pastebin.com/DwAxbMAu17:42
DJonesEriC^^: That is on 16.1017:42
sruliioria: correct so when merging wont it put from line 7724 to the end in the beginning of the merged file?17:43
EriC^^DJones: aha, thanks17:43
ioriasruli,  yep, it's a bit difficult17:43
sruliEriC^^: what is your idea to tackle it?17:44
EriC^^pwn: try sudo hwclock --set --date="2017-01-02 17:45:00"17:45
EriC^^sruli: i will write it in the pastebin as pseudo-code17:45
sruliEriC^^: hold on, found a plugin that is suppposed to add dat to timestamp.. restarting app to see if it works 1 min17:48
sruliEriC^^: ioria: result! i now have this for timestamp (2017-01-02 17:48:27)17:49
ioriasruli,  you can sort the files by dates and tail -n 100000000 *  >>output  :þ17:50
sruliioria: how do i tail multiple files at once?17:50
ioriasruli, tail -n 100000000  file1 file2 file3  >> output17:51
ioriasruli,  in the correct order17:51
sruliioria: as the date timestamps only started now, will have to wait a few days before i can try it.17:52
EriC^^ioria: it won't put them in the main file though17:53
EriC^^there might be places where mainfile has day1 day2, and log is day3, then main has day4 and day5, then another log is day6 etc :/17:53
ioriaEriC^^, i'll maintain an alternative one, in any case17:54
EriC^^sruli: so we'll do it another time then?17:55
ioriaEriC^^,  maybe the loggin format would change with some updates17:55
sruliEriC^^: ioria: yes we'll have to wait a few days to get enough logs to be able to play with, however if we have full timestamps wont it be easier to convert to epoch > sort into 1 file > convert back?17:56
ioriabrb, sy17:57
EriC^^sruli: yeah that would be way easier17:58

ubottukodi (source: kodi): Open Source Home Theatre (executable binaries). In component universe, is optional. Version 16.1+dfsg1-2 (yakkety), package size 12 kB, installed size 62 kB18:13
EriC^^MarcoP: type sudo parted -l and pastebin the output18:14
FinalXMarcoP: do fdisk -l on the device path of the drive, or fdisk -l without arguments and look for the 320gb drive. it's probably just one partition18:14
xanguacuddle: you can also see live streams in MPV18:14
FinalXor that18:14
xanguacuddle: or at least for recent versions, not sure if the version that comes in Ubuntu can18:15
BluesKajcuddle, kodi is basically the same software one gets with those android tv boxes on amazon etc18:15
FinalXPlex Home Theatre was built off of it as wel, Kodi is formerly known as XBMC18:16
BluesKajcuddle, but dunno if it's worth the trouble for just one channel/stream18:16

RageCrazeikonia right after i installed ubuntu everything worked fine, i restart my computer and the internet connection is lost, i cant connect and i cant do anything with internet18:34

RageCrazeyes ikonia its a wifi connection18:34
RageCrazewait im talking to you through my other computer, the laptop that has ubuntu isn't connected right now ikonia18:35
ikoniaRageCraze: so if you see "wireless extensions not present" that means none of the interfaces your machine can see is wifi capable, which normally means your wifi card cannot be "seen" by the OS18:35
RageCrazeikonia but how did the wifi work right after i installed the OS? is this some kind of issue that won't be fixed for me?18:35
RageCrazeikonia and btw, sometimes when i restart again the wifi comes back18:36

CodeMouse92R7M440: I don't think you should have to leave the LTS (16.04) for this...19:22
Dreamanupgreat to 16.1019:22
CodeMouse92R7M440: Okay, before I say anything else, open up About This Computer (on the power menu)19:22
CodeMouse92What does it say under Graphics?19:23
R7M440CodeMouse92 done19:24
CodeMouse92R7M440: What does it say?19:24
CodeMouse92Under Graphics?19:24
R7M440CodeMouse92 Intel Kabylake GT2, and i got a dedicated AMD R7 M440 installed19:25
R7M440CodeMouse92 The AMD doesn't appear there though19:25
CodeMouse92R7M440: Huh, okay, that doesn't sound like it's using the right driver for AMD even19:26
CodeMouse92R7M440: There are a couple of directions you could go with for this, but I do NOT recommend upgrading to Ubuntu 16.10 for either path....19:26
CodeMouse92R7M440: One, you could install the open source driver. It isn't perfect, but it's FOSS19:26
MonkeyDustR7M440  in a terminal, type    lspci | grep -i audio19:26
CodeMouse92R7M440: The other path would be to install the official AMD drivers for that card, which officially support 16.04: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Install.aspx19:27
CodeMouse92Compat info: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMD-Radeon-GPU-PRO-Linux-Beta-Driver–Release-Notes.aspx19:28
R7M440CodeMouse92 The second thing was what i did, didn't work19:28
CodeMouse92R7M440: Hm, okay. When you say 'didn't work', what exactly happened?19:28
R7M440CodeMouse92 It seemed like it installed correctly, and asked for restart. But when logging in back, it froze, and i didn't have display19:29
R7M440CodeMouse92 I tried everything and ended up with a black screen, and a useless ubuntu19:30
CodeMouse92R7M440: So, it's unbootable atm?19:30
R7M440CodeMouse92 What?19:31
CodeMouse92R7M440: You said you wound up with a useless ubuntu. Is it presently unusable?19:31
CodeMouse92Or did you already uninstall the driver?19:31
R7M440CodeMouse92 Yeah, i got to reinstall it19:31
R7M440CodeMouse92 I gotta*19:32
CodeMouse92R7M440: Okay, before you reinstall Ubuntu, let's see if we can't get the driver off19:32
CodeMouse92R7M440: They packed an uninstall script into it, so if we can get to the root recovery terminal, we should be able to run that19:32
freefallducasse, thanks you for that info.. that got it going19:32
R7M440CodeMouse92 I cannot access any terminal19:33
R7M440CodeMouse92 not anymore19:33
CodeMouse92R7M440: Well, you actually can. When you turn it on and reach GRUB (it should get that far)...19:33
CodeMouse92R7M440: go to Advanced19:33
MonkeyDustR7M440  ctrl-alt-f119:33
ducassefreefall: no problem, enjoy :)19:33
R7M440CodeMouse92 yeah, i was having that in mind when i said i cannot haha19:34
CodeMouse92R7M440: Wait, GRUB isn't even coming up?19:34
R7M440CodeMouse92 no, it freezes and i have to force the shutdown of the computer19:35
CodeMouse92The graphics driver shouldn't have an effect on that...the kernel isn't even loaded yet, much less any drivers19:35
CodeMouse92So, the AMD thing must have screwed up a whole lot more than just the driver19:36
CodeMouse92R7M440: At what point does it crash? Right after POST?19:36
R7M440CodeMouse92 I told you i tried everything.... must have touch something without knowing..19:36
CodeMouse92R7M440: Okay, let me check something. Just a sc19:37
LiENUSis there a 32 bit efi ubuntu image?19:37
EriC^^LiENUS: yes19:37
LiENUSEriC^^, is it on the livedisk for i386?19:37
EriC^^LiENUS: wait you said image? i dont think so19:37
EriC^^not sure19:37
R7M440CodeMouse92 I think it'll be faster to begin from 019:38
CodeMouse92R7M440: Yeah, go ahead and go for a complete reinstall of Ubuntu 16.04. I still would recommended sticking with that, and NOT upgrading19:38
EriC^^LiENUS: are you trying to install on some hybrid tablet/pc kind of device?19:38
LiENUSEriC^^, trying to liveusb boot on one and get data off a dying one19:38
R7M440CodeMouse92 Ok, i'll install the same one19:38
CodeMouse92Unless you literally need Kernel 4.8 or something else in the 16.10 changelog (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/YakketyYak/ReleaseNotes)19:38
R7M440CodeMouse92 Brb19:38
CodeMouse92(Reason for that advice, if you don't need to incur the instability of a non-LTS for some feature, don't bother)19:39
LiENUSsomeone decided running backups was unimportant19:39
ducasseCodeMouse92: if he does, that will be available for 16.04 in ~2 weeks19:39
EriC^^LiENUS: http://askubuntu.com/questions/392719/32-bit-uefi-boot-support19:40
CodeMouse92ducasse: Good to know! I had a feeling it'd show up for the LTS eventually.19:40
EriC^^LiENUS: looks like you're going to have to download the 32bit efi file and copy it to the live usb manually, doesn't seem too bad19:40
CodeMouse92I had so many problems jumping between the non-LTS versions on the last iteration, I decided to stay put this time until there was a showstopper feature I wanted.19:40
xanguaCodeMouse92: you can actually (will in late January)install yaketty kernel and xorg19:40
LiENUSEriC^^, it looks like he used an amd64 image of ubuntu though? what?19:41
CodeMouse92xangua: Ah, Xorg's getting updated on LTS too? Nice.19:41
ducasseCodeMouse92: yes, it's part of the hwe stack19:41
CodeMouse92Makes sense. They don't call it "long term support" for nothing19:41
LiENUSaaand since my liveusb is read only for some reason19:42
EriC^^LiENUS: check the 2nd answer19:43
EriC^^LiENUS: err, 1st answer19:43
EriC^^LiENUS: you're going to have to make the live usb a different way19:44
LiENUSEriC^^, seems mkusb buggered my flash drive somehow19:44
EriC^^LiENUS: nah19:44
LiENUSgnome disk manager wont let me delete the partitions19:45
EriC^^LiENUS: do you plan to use it all for the live usb?19:45
EriC^^nothing else important on it?19:45
LiENUSat this point nope19:45
xanguaLiENUS: did you try to delete them with fdisk?19:45
EriC^^LiENUS: try sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=4M count=119:46
EriC^^LiENUS: use "lsblk" to get its name19:46
LiENUSgot em to delete with fdisk19:49
EriC^^LiENUS: make a gpt partition table19:51
EriC^^using gdisk /dev/sdX then o then w19:52
WeeceyWooI'm not sure of any good channels to join?19:53
EriC^^WeeceyWoo: what topic are you interested in?19:54
LiENUSaand now to wait an hour or two for debian to download :/20:01
Guy1524hey guys, in Ubuntu, is it possible to force maximise a 640x480 window via scaling?20:16
Exterminadorwell, i've finally started the dd command. i've done: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=1M status=progress. now, is just wait that it finishes, right? it's coping at 79.1MB/s. not a bad speed huh?20:17
Guy1524still want to actual resolution to be 640x480, just scaled so it is maximised20:17

Exterminadorjust one question. on the progress appears: 798.001 s on the output. that's the number of seconds since i've started dd cmd?20:21
Bashing-omExterminador: Honestly, I do not remember .20:22
ExterminadorBashing-om: i've readed the man dd, to see if i can see the progress. and i found that i should append status=progress to the command. xD20:22
ioriaExterminador,  sudo kill -USR1 $(pgrep ^dd)20:22
Exterminadorioria: that prints the time since i've started the dd?20:23
Bashing-omioria: :) to the rescue !20:23

H3dgeH0ghy guys from 2 days i have some microlag/freeze with mouse pointer and on games like cs go i have always microfreeze like the mouse. i got the same problem on ubuntu (16.04 and 16.10) and arch linux with different de, my gpu is a gtx 950 with propietary drivers (nvidia-367)20:25
Exterminadorerm. no command 'pgrep' found20:25
Exterminadori'm doind the dd from the usb.. (should be like this, right?)20:26
wafflejockExterminador, you can always use the date command before executing or use time command to run the command and record the time, doesn't give you time while it's running though just total time20:26

saju_mI have a question20:36
saju_mI want to install ntp 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-3ubuntu2.14.04.620:36
Exterminadordd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M status=progress -> note that down when someone needs to zero out a drive. :)20:36
tyriondwarfhow do I stop the annoying require password when using sudo20:37
saju_mBut when i do apt-get install ntp, it installs ntp 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-3ubuntu2.14.04.1020:37
Exterminadorioria: i have a Dual Core T4300 @ 2.10Ghz (1.20Mhz)20:37
ioriaExterminador, in this case very good   ... hard drive ?20:37
saju_mapt-cache policy ntp shows like this20:37
tyriondwarfTCPKeepAlive yes, ClientAliveInterval 30, ClientAliveCountMax 999920:38
Exterminadorioria: note sure. i guess it's a WD disk20:38
ic2000if i'm using kubuntu and having a bad problem, would that problem have a chance of going away if i get ubuntu20:38
tyriondwarfwhy do i have to provide sudo password constantly still?20:38
saju_mHow can I install particular version of a package, Which source.list entry should i add ?20:39
Exterminadorhow do i check what disk i have?20:39
ioriasaju_m, are you on trusty ?20:39
ioriasaju_m, it's ok, then20:40
xanguaic2000: or you could describe your actual problem instead of making it an XY problem20:40
ic2000xangua: wifi adapter just isn't working. i reinstalled kubuntu and it worked until i unplugged it20:40
saju_mioria, sorry, i didn't get20:41
ioriaExterminador, sudo lshw -C disk20:41
ioriasaju_m,  it's the correct version20:41
Bashing-omExterminador: ' sudo lshw -C Disk -short ' ?20:41
ic2000xangua: i've tried everything, nothing will work it makes no sense whatsoever20:41
ic2000especially since it was working for a whole day today until i take it out20:41
xanguaic2000: no idea, I don't use Wi-Fi adapter20:42
ioriasaju_m,  if you ask me, don't install not supported version (btw, you can force it)20:42
saju_mioria, i want to add an entry in source.list which contains only ntp 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-3ubuntu2.14.04.620:42

saju_mioria, what is the better way.   use the package in the trusty-updates ? https://paste.ubuntu.com/23729692/20:54

saju_mioria, ok, thanks20:55
ioriasaju_m,  no prob, good luck20:55

craysiiiHey everyone, I am quite puzzled. I am trying to install ubuntu server 16.04.1 on my desktop, and later install a DE. I am trying to set up software raid with MDADM, and ive come to a point where i need to use fdisk, but when i use CTRL-ALT-F2 to access busybox shell, it says fdisk doesn't exist, nor can I install it via apt (doesn't exist either). how can i use fdisk in this situation?21:01
shambat_having some problems with a disk in my btrfs array. I have 4 disks in raid10, where /dev/sde is showing 100% busy and reads from it are causing 100% iowaits on the reading core. I started a scrub which is taking a long time, and my kern.log has a lot of: "blk_update_request: I/O error, dev sde, sector <number>" in it.21:02
=== shambat_ is now known as shambat
Exterminador60,5 mins to do 260Gb. i'm almost there! xD21:08
MonkeyDustshambat  is that a server? if yes, there's also #ubuntu-server21:08
Bashing-omcraysiii: fumm .. "fdisk" is in a standard install by defualt . what results ' sudo fdisk -lu ' ?21:08
craysiiiwell Bashing-om, i will get a "sudo: not found" error21:09
craysiiithis is during installation, so there is no actual install yet21:09
craysiiii am just accessing busybox during the installation via CTRL-ALT-F221:10
shambatMonkeyDust: ok thanks. there's also a #btrfs I realized :)21:10
craysiiii am trying to follow this guide : http://askubuntu.com/questions/505446/how-to-install-ubuntu-14-04-with-raid-1-using-desktop-installer21:10
craysiiiwhich i know has worked for me during ubuntu desktop installation21:10
craysiiimy attempts to install the soft raid using the built in menus for mdadm failed21:11
Bashing-omcraysiii: Do not know as 'fdisk' is available in my fresh install of 16.04 and the tool is not a "package" one can download and install .21:13
ExterminadorBashing-om: not a good idea run smartctl while zero out the drive, right?21:14
craysiii thanks anyway Bashing-om21:16
Bashing-omExterminador: Concur, not a good idea .21:16
ExterminadorBashing-om: i can run the smartctl right after zero out the drive? or i need to reboot or something?21:17
Bashing-omExterminador: I would expect it to be just fine to run the smart test as soon as the drive is zero'd out .21:18
ExterminadorBashing-om: you'll be around for how long?21:18
Exterminadori've done 303Gb in 72 mins21:19
Exterminador200 Gb +/- remaining21:19
Bashing-omExterminador: I got to be away for a spell in about 20 minutes . but I will leave my client active and be back soonest .21:20
ExterminadorBashing-om: i'll paste the output of smartctl into the ubuntu pastebin as soon as the drive is zero'd out21:21
Exterminadorthen you can take a look21:21

CodeMouse92R7M440: Okay, open up About This Computer again, and post what's under "Graphics"21:27
glitchdso my other laptop would not boot. there was something wrong with the os(linux) so i made an .img of the entire hard drive and formatted it. now is there any way to mount the .img file i made of the hard drive to attempt any kind of data rescue?21:28
R7M440CodeMouse92 Intel Kabylake GT221:28
CodeMouse92R7M440: Riiiiight. Okay, hm. What's your AMD graphic card model again?21:29
R7M440R7 M440, my name haha21:29
CodeMouse92Oh, handy21:29
CodeMouse92Okay, your card isn't listed on the open source Radeon driver: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver21:30
CodeMouse92So....was the prior install fresh as well?21:31
CodeMouse92Okay, hm. Let me check something21:31
CodeMouse92R7M440: The official recommendation is indeed to use the new AMD driver you tried earlier...21:32
CodeMouse92R7M440: When you did that, however, did you follow the steps about adding the user to the video group before restarting?21:33
R7M440CodeMouse92 I think so... I used the command groups and my login name was listed... I didn't do the following instruction as I didn't see it necessary..21:34
CodeMouse92R7M440: Ahhhhh. Well, if you run 'groups', yes, you'll see your name. But the problem is, your account isn't a member of the 'video' group by default21:35
CodeMouse92Which is why they had the instruction after it21:35
R7M440Oh, so maybe that was THE problem21:35
CodeMouse92R7M440: Worth a shot. Worst case, you reinstall and start over. :P21:36
R7M440CodeMouse92 Please no! haha21:36
R7M440CodeMouse92 I'll try21:37
CodeMouse92R7M440: It looks like, either you get this working, or you work with the current drivers. I don't think there are alternatives ATM ._.21:37
R7M440CodeMouse92 Well, hope it works then21:37
LiENUSwell sadly ubuntu failed me :( but i did discover clonezilla has efi 32 support so a disk image will do what i need21:38
R7M440CodeMouse92 brb21:38
LiENUSnot much of a failing on ubuntus part though i am wanting to do something stupid21:39

blamiLiENUS: are you trying to run it on a bay trail thing?21:42
LiENUSblami, probably21:46
LiENUSits an acer switch 1021:47
LiENUSi like the hardware tbh, just like all laptops i've bought lately its been horribly unreliable21:47
LiENUSi've had a lot of hardware failures right at 2 years accross the board on my laptops21:47
LiENUSyeah i believe it is bay trial21:47
LiENUSthough I didn't realize the hd was soldered to the motherboard, if i had realized that i would probably have bought a different machine for this use21:49
blamiLiENUS: there are prepared isos for those which have uefi ia32 version of grub and also some kernel patches ubuntu hasn't (yet)21:49
blamiLiENUS: i'll pm you21:50
LiENUSblami, clonezilla is working for it for now, i'll be able to use it it looks like21:50
LiENUSi just need to pull data off a dying machine21:50
blamiLiENUS: aha21:50
LiENUSits got our timeclock data on it and payroll is today21:50
LiENUSand the person who does payroll stopped doing backups21:50
blamiLiENUS: oops21:51
blamiLiENUS: i am running ubuntu on one of these. There's plethora of problems but it has only 2G of RAM so ubuntu with lxde is way faster than w10 there21:52
LiENUSblami, my only real complaint specific to it is the stupid soldered on disk, the reliability is an issue i've had accross the board lately no idea wtf is going on but manufacturers have been putting out crap the past two years21:53
LiENUSthen again i havent tried to run linux on it till now21:54
blamiLiENUS: yes, it's onboard sd card basically21:54
blamiLiENUS: but hey those are around $300 so I wouldn't expect any better ... I am using syncthing to keep important stuff sync'd with my nas21:56
blamiLiENUS: as it may die any time21:56
Exterminadorwell, dd is almost finished.. this is making me nervous!21:56
LiENUSblami, yeah she was supposed to be doing that21:56
LiENUSlooks like its the disk dying in it, so yeah i need clonezilla anyway it has a rescue mode21:59
kittykittyanyone know why when i shrink a partition in gparted it adds 2gibs of unallocated to the front of the disk?21:59
R7M440CodeMouse92 Ok, it's installed, how do i add my user to the group?21:59
CodeMouse92R7M440: What's your username?22:00
blamiLiENUS: in my previous company they failed our drives randomly over "remote control" software in probation period to see if we are doing backups properly22:00
blamiLiENUS: that was best lesson I've got about doing backups :D ... losing week worth of coding and IT guy haha22:00
CodeMouse92R7M440: Actually, just substitute it into this command (where I have yourusername)......$ sudo usermod -a -G video yourusername22:01
blamikittykitty: it may be weird partition schema where partition numbers aren't assigned in disk order22:01
kittykittyblami, literally just a single ntfs partition on the disk and i shrank it by 25gib22:02
blamikittykitty: that's weird22:02
kittykittyikr blami22:02
R7M440CodeMouse92 Ok, done. How do i check it's done?22:03
kittykittyblami, made me move the entire disk to the right for it too22:03
R7M440CodeMouse92 If i use groups should ''video'' be there?22:03
CodeMouse92R7M440: Yes22:03
R7M440CodeMouse92 well, it isn't..22:03
CodeMouse92....looking something up22:05
CodeMouse92R7M440: This driver is rather unfamiliar to me, so I'm leveraging some serious Google-Fu....22:07
CodeMouse92Anyway, the release notes mention Vulkan as part of the driver stack, and that it has to be installed separately22:07
CodeMouse92Since you got *this* far last time and it didn't work, it might be worth installing this part as well22:07
CodeMouse92The step adding yourself to the video group relates to that, which may be why the group isn't showing up22:08
R7M440ok, let's see22:08
R7M440CodeMouse92 Still nothing22:19

CodeMouse92R7M440: Okay, then I regret to repost something from AMD's "known limitations"22:27
CodeMouse92R7M440: "Unable to log in to the system after driver installation on certain platforms."22:27
CodeMouse92R7M440: Wait...you're saying "still nothing" in regards to it still not working>?22:28
CodeMouse92Or in regards to it not showing up on "groups"?22:28
Exterminadorwell guys, if anyone can take a look at this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23730196/22:30
ExterminadorBashing-om: ^22:30
R7M440CodeMouse92 Still not showing i'm in the group. I logged out since i read you have to do it to see the changes. Guess what: IT CRASHED22:31
CodeMouse92R7M440: Grah22:31
CodeMouse92R7M440: Okay, so yeah, this is one of those "platforms" that AMD hasn't gotten it working on yet22:32
R7M440CodeMouse92 So no hope for me then..22:32
Exterminadori'll be around. when someone check my link, please highlight me. thanks in advance22:33
CodeMouse92R7M440: Not yet. I think you're going to have to work on the default driver until either the open source Radeon driver starts working, or AMD fixes the bug22:33
CodeMouse92R7M440: You could contact their support, although I don't know anything about how helpful it is22:34
R7M440CodeMouse92 Ok.. Well thank you very much for your help22:34
CodeMouse92R7M440: No prob. yeah, if you're under warrenty, get in touch w/ them and see what options you have22:34

Bashing-omExterminador: Not a problem to partition for multiboot ; just takes knowing what you want :) . Look my system with 2 drives presently not connected: http://termbin.com/n2cg .23:19
Tuggeryup I have read that. Im just trying to also use LUKS, but cant manage to get grub to recognize the installation23:20
