Alopex systems. Unfortunately, there seems to be something wrong with the network configuration (i had made several adjustments when setting the system up to prevent loopback via the vpn tunnel interface, as VPN clients in this system should not see each other, only the server) and eveything ran fine for about a month. Going about a routine update yester03:45

As you can probably imagine. It's been a fun time. I've now got the drive of that VM attached to another working Ubuntu server instance in the cloud so that I can make any require03:45
Alopexd changes to get it rolling again, however it appears that resetting UFW, clearing out the iptable rules and checking the network interface parameters hasn't done me any good yet after several attempts.

I have tried apt-cacher-ng , apt-cacher, and squid-deb-proxy.   apt-cacher-ng will not work with systemd, confirmed bugs already filed. apt-cacher works partially but fails on half the packages with a 502 error and randomly at that. squid-deb-proxy also will not work with systemd.05:38
wedgiemakitoro: what problems do you have with apt-cacher-ng? I use it for all of the debian 8 servers at work, and thos have systemd05:41
makitoroIt flat out refuses to run the service with systemd, confirmed bug both on Ubuntu 16.04 and on Debian. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-cacher-ng/+bug/1512780  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=77248905:43

wedgieinteresting. There does seem to be a workaround in the bug listing, though05:45
wedgiehave you tried that?05:45
makitoroyou mean the part about app armor?05:46
wedgienah, the second comment about fixing user and group ownership of the log file05:47
makitorothat was the first thing I tried, tried setting various levels of openenes but systemd refused to start the service05:51
makitorodoing a fresh install now will try it again05:52
wedgieshould just be ''sudo chown apt-cacher-ng:apt-cacher-ng /var/log/apt-cacher-ng'' if i'm understanding that post correctly05:53
makitorothat  i already did, made no effect to the systemd fail promts05:55
makitoroi tried various user:group combinations, all forms of rwx permissions, nothing changed. Both when installing it and when manually running it " the Job for apt-cacher-ng.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status apt-cacher-ng.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details." would be the result.05:57
wedgiei'm installing a vm real quick to see if i get the same thing. Might get called away to dinner before it finishes though05:58
wedgieoh good, the desktop installer is going ahead and downloading stuff even though that box was unchecked. That's nice.05:59
makitorofile a bug :P06:01
wedgiemeh, just thought i'd save time by using the ISO i had on hand... Guess that was foolish06:02
=== Guest49373 is now known as himcesjf
makitoroI think (based on post on askubuntu) the desktop installer downloads security updates and has them ready to install at first boot even if you unselect updates while installing. not 100% sure on accuracy of that, read it in passing.06:04
wedgiewould you hate me if i told you that the only command i have run on this vm was ''sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install apt-cacher-ng'' and it worked? Ubuntu 16.04, desktop edition06:04
wedgiehaven't really tested it, but it is now listening on port 314206:05
wedgieanyway, gotta run. Hopefully you get it sorted out06:06

fletomlotuspsychje: I'm installing ubuntu server though - shouldn't need lubuntu right?07:05
cfhowlettfletom, that was my thought as well.  did you do the nomodeset option?07:05
lotuspsychjefletom: im just widening your options :p07:05
fletomstarted getting a different issue with a unetbootin 10 second "automatic boot" loop, so haven't tried nomodeset yet07:06
lotuspsychjefletom: sounds like a broken unetbootin iso, tried making it with ubuntu?07:07
wafflejockelisa87, no it's just a client for RDP you'd have to enable remote desktop access on Windows think that's only available in the pro version with certain windows versions07:07
fletomlotuspsychje: I'm making it on macOS from the ubuntu-16.04.1-server-i386.iso torrent07:07
elisa87I have windows 10 home edition, how can I access windows in a GUI fashion from Ubuntu?07:08
wafflejockelisa87, if you don't have that think you'd probably want to go with vncserver of some sort on the windows machine and a VNC client on the ubuntu machine but personal opinion is RDP is usually better07:08
fletomI'd prefer making it from ubuntu, but I don't have ubuntu yet, which is why I'm trying to install it :p07:08
lotuspsychjefletom: unetbootin gives some broken iso's in some cases with that blinking cursor.. i would test another iso burn method07:08
lotuspsychjefletom: also make sure your bios/uefi is setup correctly, blinking cursors on wrong fastboot/secureboot also07:10

alkisgfletom: the installer functioned fine? and the problem is only after installation?07:13
fletomalkisg: nope this was before getting to any ubuntu install screen. burning the usb and was booting from it07:13
alkisgfletom: ah, then it's probably due to the bad unetbootin, try rufus or dd07:14
fletomok will definitely try that. strange that unetbootin is the official ubuntu recommendation if there're so many problems with it07:15
alkisgelisa87: install "remmina" or "xfreerdp" or "vncviewer"07:16
alkisgfletom: it says "rufus" there: https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows07:17
makitoroI have used DD and unetbootin in the last week, both failed to make a working Ubuntu 16.04  USB and Centos 7 US.  usb-creator-gtk worked07:17
alkisgNot unetbootin07:17
alkisgmakitoro: i seriously doubt that dd didn't make a bootable usb07:17
alkisgMaybe you had partitions mounted while dd'ing?07:17
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent07:18
makitoroit made a perfect write for both Ubuntu and Centos, key wasn't bootable07:18
alkisgI don't know about centos, but ubuntu 16.04 usb sticks with dd are perfectly bootable, so you must have done something wrong07:19
alkisgBeen that way for ages...07:19
fletomalkisg: doing it from a mac though, so it says unetbootin here: https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-macos07:19

TvL2386assmith, as for iptable changes: I think the default nowadays is managed through ufw. I've never used it though. I save my iptable config (iptables-save > /etc/iptables.v4) and load it by calling iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.v4 in /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/iptables-v409:11

Ranfor some reason the fact of having the symlink there, is making everything missbehave09:15
Ranit even kills the ls command09:15
alkisgtech1: there's an "apt-daily" service that runs apt-get update in the background, so you need to wait for it to finish... run `ps aux|grep apt` to see it09:15
Ben64alkisg: how is the directory shared09:16
tech1alkisg: i just turn on my pc.09:16
alkisgtech1, yes, and it's trying to update, it's normal09:16

tech1alkisg: it is problem since i last used my pc yesterday. i closed some software installation at middle in commandline.09:17
ObrienDavethat's almost never a good idea09:18
alkisgtech1, no, that's not what the error message is about. Can you paste the output of `ps aux|grep apt` here?09:19
RanBen64: I used the config.vm.synced_folder parameter in the vagrantfile09:19
tech1alkisg: output of $ps aux | grep apt is https://paste.ubuntu.com/23862325/09:19
alkisgtech1, you can for example interrupt it with: sudo kill 240109:20
alkisgtech1, then you can try your apt-get update commands09:20
Ben64Ran: you probably can't make symlinks then09:20

ZJAYhey eveyone i have a refurbished m81 thinkcentre im wanted to put or did put ubuntu 16.04 on? but whehi get done installing and reboot i get the ERROR 1962: No Operating System error when in EFI mode and it tries to load the network troubleshooter that resides in the ibm bios or levovo and get a cannot find nwtwork etc IOW it cant find the grub or mbr partition to load ubuntu?09:57
ZJAYanybody have any idea how i get ubuntu to load the grub into the MBR? to fix the issue im guessing at this point been working on  it for hours now trying everything from the forums etc youtube etc09:58
ZJAYi dont mind reinstalling linux or whatever it takes if anyone has any knowlegdge here?09:59
k1ldid you try boot repair already?10:00
ubottuBoot-Repair is a simple tool to repair frequent boot issues you may encounter in Ubuntu. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair for more info.10:00
alkisgZJAY: how did you install ubuntu, by making a usb stick with unetbootin?10:00
ZJAYyes with rufus on another completely separate machine?10:00
ZJAYi jhave used this same installer stick with like 5 other builds no issues10:01
alkisgZJAY: did you select that you want it to support UEFI? Because it sounds like you have an uefi pc with gpt disk, not mbr10:01
alkisgSo if you booted with a usb stick in non-uefi mode, then it wouldn't have been able to properly install grub10:01
ZJAYi think i may initially just hit enter  or the first install i seen whe n it came that first time so ho do i change it or reinstall the right way now? i can load and have off of the stick to a usb live version to do alot of the eufi/boot changes i tried10:02
ZJAYok it complained i think about that so howdo i fix the issue then10:03
alkisgZJAY: first, you need to boot with a stick in uefi mode, in order to be able to install grub or ubuntu in uefi mode10:03
alkisgZJAY: try booting with your usb stick and come here again then for more info10:04
ZJAYhow do determine that?10:04
ZJAYidid it boots fine with the stick10:04
alkisgDoes it boot in uefi though?10:04
alkisgIs a /sys/firmware/efi directory present when you boot?10:04
ZJAYi can get in the lice version from the usb stick where it says in the grub menu wanna try first deal10:05
ZJAYpresent where10:05
ZJAYon the stick it is as far as i know how do i find out?10:05
energizerI just changed display drivers. Everything looks fine. Do I need to reboot for anything to take effect?10:05

ZJAY hey eveyone i have a refurbished m81 thinkcentre im wanted to put or did put ubuntu 16.04 on? but whehi get done installing and reboot i get the ERROR 1962: No Operating System error when in EFI mode and it tries to load the network troubleshooter that resides in the ibm bios or levovo and get a cannot find nwtwork etc IOW it cant find the grub or mbr partition to load ubuntu?10:38

bazhanghhee, why would you need the less secure version10:45
mcphailpoorUser: by default, vi has always been a symlink to vim on Ubuntu. Vim behaves as vi if invoked by that symlink10:46
poorUsermcphail: tnk! i remember sudo apt-get install vim some years ago, so like you said, was removed just in some ISOs10:47

shomonhi, I'm trying to get an old desktop online after a few years in a box.. it has a broadcom usb wifi, but although iwlist can find it and does a successful scan of wifi networks, wpa_supplicant won't connect to it.. or I'm not sure it knows how..11:40
shomonit seems to be doing a failed auth at the moment, so I'm not sure if I need an s: prefix to the key, or if I'm missing something.. network manager doesn't seem to even detect wifi11:41
ubuntu743The part thats worrying me the most is that this usb is not mine its of another friend and she is going to kill me for breaking it... :{11:41

shomonhi, no I had to come over here to connect to the internet. it's broadcom..11:50
tatertotsshomon: so you can't temporarily use a wired connection?11:51
shomonand it's a ubuntu box.. yes I could use a wired connection I have an old cable somewhere.. I'd have to move lots of things though..11:51
shomonmaybe I could tether it..11:52
tatertotsshomon: hmmmm ok well...11:52
steven_if you can connect to the internet any way, then sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source might solve your problem(don't forget to reboot)11:52

Netek2hi all, I currently use virtualbox on my home computer and I would like to setup a dedicated server with virtualbox that has no gui, is this possible?  Or are there any other opensource virtualization people could recommend?  This is a personal project that I will not be looking to sell services on so preferably I would want a free software12:33
EriC^^Netek2: yes it's possible12:35
EriC^^and virtualbox is fitting12:35
Netek2EriC^^ ok great, I will see how to install it and work it via terminal :)  thank you12:35
EriC^^Netek2: no problem12:36
noc_Netek2, popular alternatives are virt-manager or gnome-boxes as wrappers for qemu, they are more configurable but less user-friendly somehow12:48
Netek2noc_ ok, I will read them up also, I heard of gnome-boxes but would this not be for a gui machine?  I have a dedicated server to run my project on12:49

JC_Yangcfhowlett, which one?   the one I posted and the one mentioned in wine-official site are both ppa13:08
k1l_ginnyb: "ncdu" is a nice toll  to browse through the folders and see what uses the diskspace. but you need some space to isntall it first13:08
cfhowlettJC_Yang, ppa are not supported so you are on your own.  sudo apt install wine will get the one in the ubuntu repository13:08
noc_ginnyb, "disk usage analyzer"/baobab13:08

noc_ah, missed that13:11
k1l_JC_Yang: did you read the wiki page i linked or did you just look for commands there?13:12
cfhowlettJC_Yang, "stable" = in the repo.  "unstable/untrusted are NOT in the repo but *might* be acceptable ppa.  your choice.13:12
k1l_JC_Yang: the wine team only makes staging or devel builds. so i dont understand why you demand "official stable builds" from ubuntu now?13:13
cfhowlettginnyb, try sudo apt clean && sudo apt-get autoremove13:13
JC_Yangoh, sorry, I didn't read it carefully.  I don't request stable builds from ubuntu, I just want to find it for ubuntu13:14
ginnybcfhowlett: will do13:14
JC_Yangfor and from are completely different terms, I guess~   sorry that I haven't read the page carefully, now I know I have to go with ppa, or build it on my own13:16
ginnybcfhowlett: apt-get autoremove lead to 593 MB more space but still not enough13:18
cfhowlettI see no reason your system should suddenly jump to 100% - sorry but over my head.13:19
k1l_JC_Yang: that is what lead to our confusion to what you actually want :) no problem.  ubuntu doesnt upgrade the version after the ubuntu release. so use the wine PPA13:19
k1l_ginnyb: install "ncdu". then use that to look at where the space is used13:20

JohnDoe2Hi! Does anyone have a better way of debugging why sshfs drops the connection? It's a local network, so I doubt it's a connection drop. Also, -o reconnect is there, so that should handle it. I ran it with -o sshfs_debug but none of the messages are errors or give any insight as to what may make it drop the mount.14:21
JohnDoe2my command is sshfs -d -C -o reconnect -o allow_other -o workaround=all -o sshfs_debug -o uid=1000 -o gid=1000 macpro@ /mnt/afp14:21
ppfwhat are the errors?14:23
jeffreylevesqueanyone know how to set xscreensaver to use a password?14:24
JohnDoe2ppf no errors, that's the thing.14:25
ppfwhat are the messages then?14:26
JohnDoe2a bunch of unique, LOOKUP, getattr on files being accessed. and then Unique/FORGET/DELETE, and it ends in a stats thing where it says how many messages it sent/received, rtt in ms, and the number of connections: 1.14:27
JohnDoe2Nothing says "can't do this/that", or "error doing this/that"... maybe I'm missing something14:27
JohnDoe2when the mount is dropped, running the sshfs command again says "bad mount point `/mnt/afp': Transport endpoint is not connected", until I umount as root it or it times out.14:29
JohnDoe2ppf http://paste.ubuntu.com/23863455/ that's the output. does anything jump at you?14:31
ppfJohnDoe2: no14:34
ppfsshfs also takes -d option for FUSE14:34
JohnDoe2sshfs -d -C -o reconnect ... --> do I need to pass -d another way?14:35

nicomachusiob1: looks like the easiest way is to upgrade your system to 16.0415:29
vnaibackport from xenial to trusty won't be easy. It is better you move to xenial for the whole system15:29
nicomachusvnai: yea.... I know. that's why I recommended the same thing.15:30
vnailibvirt is dependent on a lot of packages which you can't all backport15:31
iob1yea exactly. but i would rather avoid doing that15:31
iob1so there is not an `easy` way?!15:31
vnailibvirt is very interdependent. You might not have another option15:31
kitkat_What is libvirt?15:32
vnailibvirt in xenial needs apparmor greater than 2.8.96, trusty has 2.8.9515:33
JP____Sword: Lightning Edge15:34
JP____Armor: AppArmor lvl 315:34
nicomachusiob1: upgrade your system to Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial)15:34
vnaiThen you need to backport apparmor. Apparmor will have other conditional dependencies. You will enter dependency hell. Avoid it and just upgrade to xenial.15:34

jstarcherk1l_: that will put me on 16.10 though right?15:46
k1l_jstarcher: no15:46
brianhunteralkisg: It's an nvidia card.  I've tried both open source and propriety.  Doesn't happen all the time, and tends to happen when I have a video playing on one monitor, and I am doing something else on the other.  Particuarly happens when I open a new video, or play a gif, on the second monitor.15:46
vnaijstarcher: you have to get a livepatch token from canonical's website15:46
k1l_jstarcher: ubuntu doesnt use apt to change the ubuntu release15:46

vnaijstarcher: no you will still be on 16.04 . It will upgrade kernel also15:48
jstarchergot me a bit further15:48
vnaiapt upgrade doesn't upgrade kernel and graphics core. full-upgrade does all15:48

heshgHi... Here's one I'd like to get some insights on. I am running Ubuntu 16.04 with the 4.4.0-59-generic kernel on a Dell Inspiron 3000 14 laptop fitted with 8gb of ram. For the last three mornings I've awakened to a root file system (ext4) in read-only mode.15:54
heshgRunning fsck at pre-boot first complains about the presence of "inodes that were a part of a corrupted orphan link." Fsck then fixes everything up leaving me with a clean fs. I reboot and work all day, no problems.15:54
heshgI looked at my syslog and kern.log file where nothing stood out as a red flag, but then again after the fs goes ro I would assume I wouldn't see any more messages until I rebooted.15:54
heshgAny suggestion would be appreciated?15:54

naccoverrun: iirc, `lsb_release -a` should tell you, but that is dependent on packages. You can also look at what `uname -r` says for the running kernel and compare to the table on that page17:49
naccoverrun: postgresql built from source rather than from ubuntu?17:49
naccoverrun: postgres should not be affected by changing the kernel or X stack(s) (that's all HWE covers)17:49
xXEoflaOEXxjpmh, It might be the permissions issue. Did you try to chmod 777 /home/jpmh/zipcodes/temp.fil?17:50
naccxXEoflaOEXx: i think it's pretty clear jpmh fixed their issue already?17:51
overrunnacc thx; these are headless so no X; production server uname -r says 3.19.0-79-generic and when I ran the apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-xenial on a dev server it now reports 4.4.0-59-generic17:51
xXEoflaOEXxnacc, OK, I know.17:51
jpmhnacc: and xXEoflaOEXx ty - YES - it was directory permissions - see my own comments - told you I would feel silly17:52
naccoverrun: 3.19 was 14.04.3, yep17:52
overrunthis whole HWE thing is confusing when you see LTS is supported through YYYY; this came from highest available OS selections in Google Cloud Instances at the time17:54
naccoverrun: did you read that wiki page?17:56
naccoverrun: it's pretty clear for 14.04.x, although it's much more simple in 16.04.x, as there will only be one hwe stack (rolling forward with each dotrelease)17:56
=== ericus is now known as ericus_
=== nat__ is now known as Natkeeran
overrunyes; just saying before this showed up on the servers we assumed minor updates through LTS EOL but it makes sense; glad it will have one stack going forward; we just need to do extensive tests before moving to 16.x17:59
naccoverrun: sounds like a bad assumption (and i think it was pretty clear, although not positive) in the various release announcements for each HWE stack, as well as HWE itself18:00

budRichyes i guess it was not so smart of me to be the first in the world to install that on this unit... I even used an alternate ubuntu version from linuxium (specialised for this kind of CPU...)18:13
budRichi mailed the dev at linuxium, he said there is a problem with 17.04 and encryption, and that i should reformat in gparted. but the card doesn\t show up at all now...18:14
budRichi have reported in other channel, waiting for response, just thought someone have some general idea or experience...18:14

gooferno spikka da bot18:46
hydrajumpis there a way to make my /etc/rc.local on the casper-rw partition be persistent on first boot or does this involve remastering the ISO to include the file form the start?18:46

AlexFromCanadaHey, could anyone help connect to an EAP-TLS network? It's not working for me19:00
jcjordyn120I found a bug, I already did a bug report too.19:00
AlexFromCanadaI'm actually on linux mint, but the people over on that irc are being a bit dickish19:00
naccAlexFromCanada: unfortunately, !mint isn't supported here19:01
AlexFromCanadaYeah, but the help seems to be pretty general I think?19:01
AlexFromCanadaLike I dont think its too distro specific19:02
roothorickAlexFromCanada: logically, that would mean you'd go to a distro-agnostic channel...19:02
naccroothorick: well, you did mention in the bug (presuming you are the submitter) that the installed system (not live any longer) has the smae problem with a partial workarond?19:02
roothoricknacc: full workaround, actually, but the workaround involves a PPA or other third-party software19:03
naccroothorick: ah ok19:03

AlexFromCanadaDo you see anything wrong with this? http://imgur.com/a/0rbEz19:03
naccroothorick: so the HWE stack in 16.04.1 does or does not fix the issue?19:04

naccroothorick: it's probably just a misunderstanding in the bug report, we get lots of bug reports (particularly for the kernel)19:04
roothoricknacc: the HWE kernel is one half of the fix19:05
roothoricknacc: the other half is AMDGPU Pro or getting a newer libgl1-mesa-dri from a PPA19:05

OerHeksroothorick, wait for 16.04.2 .. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack#Ubuntu_16.04_LTS_-_Xenial_Xerus19:11
roothorickOerHeks: I don't see any mesa packages in the HWE roadmap... so at a cursory glance, .2 would be expected to have the same problem19:13
alkisgconley: try to purge them, then run `dpkg -l '*mysql*' | grep ^ii`19:13
OerHeksroothorick, ".2 would be expected to have the same problem" ???19:13
* OerHeks facepalms19:14
roothorickOerHeks: the current hwe-16.04-edge kernel has the necessary kernel-side component but a newer Mesa DRI module is required as well19:14
naccconley: or, try to install mysql-server manually, i've never seen a password prompt during the installation of the package19:14
roothorickOerHeks: so there'd need to be a libgl1-mesa-dri-hwe19:14
conleyi really might as well just do that19:15

Ralph_conley you could try sudo su19:24

conleythere's not even anything of worth on this machine haha19:24

Ralph_conley - could you explane the issue and some setup, so I could help? lost root access?19:31
conleynacc: I did, i went through everything, it's just still messing up19:32
conleyRalph_: apt-get install mysql-server is asking me for a password for some ludicrous reason, then hanging19:33
conleyi've tried many different ways to install it19:33
conleyi mean i might just go ahead and cut my losses and reinstall, i have to go to class and i'm sick of dealing with this19:33
roothoricknacc: maybe he has existing MySQL data and wants the MySQL root user pwd?19:34
conleyi have no MySQL data, no MySQL root user, nor any MySQL at all19:34

roothorickthat you know about :p I don't recall where it's stored but it's worth checking19:35
Piciconley: are you sure it isn't asking you to create the mysql root password?19:35
conleywell, regardless of whether or not it is, it hangs19:35
conleyi have to kill the process manually19:35
conleyand any character I enter is echoed in plain text which implies curses isn't working and the process froze entirely, i'd assume19:35
roothorickelias_a: that requires the device to be compromised in the first place. So technically yes, but it's not something you explicitly defend against19:35
naccroothorick: if by 'he' you mean conley, that's possible, but irrelevant to this discussion (afaict)19:36
alkisgconley: do things like vim or nano work properly?19:36
conleyalkisg: yes19:36
alkisgDo you have any DEBCONF variables set?19:36

elias_aI'll answer myself: "devices that are running with default passwords" so probably not.19:36
alkisgLike, setting the frontend...19:36
naccalkisg: good call, i wondered that now too19:36
naccconley: their installer script may have set some?19:37
conleyi ran env | grep DEBCONF and nothing showed19:37
roothorickelias_a: I'd guess that, more commonly, attackers use some mostly-unrelated exploit to get into the system and then install that trojan, as the article hinted at19:37
roothorickelias_a: said exploit is what you'd actually harden the system against19:37
elias_aroothorick: You're quit right. Ty.19:38
roothorickelias_a: technically, guessing a default password would be one such exploit :p19:39
JeSTeRH4CK3Dyou all just watch out how you setup phpMyAdmin and the perm. you give it.19:39

JeSTeRH4CK3Dwell you might like this one19:43
JeSTeRH4CK3Dits like ubuntu harneding terminal style for dummy's19:43
roothoricksay what you will, Python is probably the best language out there for throwing something together in a few minutes19:43
JeSTeRH4CK3DWELL bash can be places in the /usr/sbin file without making multi files to do so19:44
roothorickJeSTeRH4CK3D: eh, if stock 16.04 isn't hard enough for you, you probably should be running OpenBSD19:44

k1l_apt and apt-get are similar frontends to the same libs. its just that the usage from apt-get,apt-cache etc has changed in the years and apt is not merging them and changing them to todays usage19:56
JeSTeRH4CK3Dconley: very minor, mainly look19:56
conleyrepositories and packages and the like are still black magic to me19:56
conleywhat does "aptitude" refer to19:57
conleyis dpkg one of those libs?19:57
naccconley: it's another frontend19:57
JeSTeRH4CK3Ddpkg is like the main line for everything19:57
naccconley: aptitude is, that is19:57
conleyi like to think of myself as at least more tech savvy than the average bear but that shit still confuses me very much19:58
JeSTeRH4CK3Djust a bunch of frontended stuff19:58
k1l_aptitude is a nother frontend to the libe. it tried to put some more logic into solving dependency issues, but they are not stored in a way apt or others can work with.19:58
k1l_conley: what is your issue at all?19:58
conleyno issue anymore, just curious19:58
conley........nevermind, new issue19:59

conleyi reckon so20:02
JeSTeRH4CK3Dconley: do you get error messages at all?20:02
conleyJeSTeRH4CK3D:  nope, just stops.  doesn't even respond to interrupts20:02
ducassearooni: because crontab gets called from a root shell with sudo20:02
JeSTeRH4CK3Dconley: that is very strange20:03
arooniso do i need do taht command after running say sudo -i20:03
conleyyeah.  it would make sense to assume that it's a problem with their script, but it's shown up in two separate places20:03
conleyand the first one went away after i fixed my pam.d configuration20:03
naccconley: what did you have to fix in your pam.d configuration?20:03
ducassearooni: try 'sudo update-alternatives --config editor'20:04

Guma Hello I am trying to cross compile ncurses 6 to aarm64 on 16.04 x64 LTS. I have my aarm64 tool chain setup and I can build small test apps and run it on target. Now when I try to build ncurses I get so and a libs which I do static link to my test app. When trying to run on target I get this message "Error opening terminal: xterm-256color"20:31
GumaAny one idea what is going on?20:31
donofriounable to complete the dd command when making certs20:31
k1l_donofrio: not enough entropy?20:33
donofriok1l_, "seems like it"20:33
donofriok1l_, but how to test?20:33
k1l_donofrio: just use your system so it can collect more entropy20:33
donofriothey are 'in use' uptime of a month on a daily driver workstation20:34
ducasseGuma: you probably lack a termcap entry for xterm-256color, try to set TERM to just xterm20:34
=== jeffreylevesque_ is now known as jeffreylevesque
k1l_hmm, you could try urandom instead of random20:35
ppfdonofrio: that would be the wiser choice anyways, if you're making certs from this20:36
jnewtOk, I finally got into the install, and i'm trying to install alongside windows.  How do i determine where the bootloader should go (or can i just continue to use the windows 7 bootloader and add ubuntu to it's menu somehow?)20:37
k1l_donofrio: on virtual servers it doesnt work at all with random.20:37
donofriok1l_, yah thought of that, but ubuntu workstation is physical....so we're going to try urandom20:38
jnewti have /dev/nvme /dev/nvme0n1 with partitions p1(win loader) p2 (windows), p3 (/) p4 (/home).  default shows /dev/nvme20:38
donofriobut /dev/random that is like bedrock made before cat....20:39
akikjnewt: it's possible to add the boot sector to windows boot loader but usually people use grub to boot windows20:40
Gumaducasse: I did try to set to xterm same message but "xterm"20:49
GumaNot sure of this is a problem but 16.04 comes with ncurses 5.x and I am building my app ncurses 6.20:50
Gumais there some compatibility issue or I have to move some files to target beside my binary?20:50
ducasseGuma: i'm guessing you need terminfo20:52
Gumaducasse: well I am building ncurses with --enable-termcap20:55
ducasseGuma: are there termcap entries for xterm and xterm-245color?20:56
Gumaso everything build. Runtime is issue. Are are you refering to termcap config I need to move to target and where.20:56
GumaI think they are let me check20:56
Gumaducasse: I see only xterm+256color in /usr/share/terminfo/x/ So I guess xterm-256color is missing?21:01
ducasseGuma: no idea, but this is not really within the scope of #ubuntu, try ##linux21:02

codemann_Anyone has any experience with Intel Video Cards not getting higher then 1024x768 on a Ubuntu Gnome? I've been playing around with xrandr, where I keep getting "Configure crtc 0 failed" while I actually got the mode from running cvt. I also went to 01.org and downloaded update tool for Linux, which ran without a problem... I just can't get my monitor higher then 1024x76821:08
codemann_I'm starting to think that it's because it's currently connected with VGA, but when there are 2 screens on it at work, one is also connected with VGA and in Windows (pardon my french) it worked perfectly.21:08

deus402so i have been having problems with randomly losing my ethernet connection, and i have finally caught it in the act, but i also don't necessarily see anything of note in my log files. i lost connection at exactly 14:36:06, here is my syslog: http://termbin.com/hkt4 and here is my kern.log: http://termbin.com/ecck at about 14:50 i clicked on the connection in the menu bar, which brings it back21:13
deus402for some reason, which you can see happen in the kern.log at 14:49:31. can anyone shine any light on what is going on? seems to happen randomly without reason.21:13

MetalindustrienAfter 48 hours of attempting to get Ubuntu MATE installed on my MacBook Pro I'm really close to giving up... I've installed rEFInd, so booting from a USB Flash drive is not a problem, I've even succesfully made a flash drive with Ubuntu MATE 6.10 on it, and I can get to the GRUB bootloader and choose 'Try Ubuntu MATE live'. But after that I just get a black screen. I've tried waiting for HOURS but the screen remains21:17

memoryleakIs there a way to automatically create an image of /dev/sda (mounted as /) to antother disk on shutdown? I'm imagining something like when I use the shutdown button that it shuts down to a minimal state and mounts the root filesystem ro in order to image the disk and to store it on another one22:06
ttmxHow hard is it to make myself a temporary website that would boot off a live usb?22:08
OerHeksmemoryleak, see http://askubuntu.com/questions/83473/how-to-execute-script-on-shutdown or http://ccm.net/faq/3348-execute-a-script-at-startup-and-shutdown-on-ubuntu22:09

deus402tomreyn: so i have been having problems with randomly losing my ethernet connection, and i have finally caught it in the act, but i also don't necessarily see anything of note in my log files. i lost connection at exactly 14:36:06, here is my syslog: http://termbin.com/hkt4 and here is my kern.log: http://termbin.com/ecck at about 14:50 i clicked on the connection in the menu bar, which brings22:10
deus402it back for some reason, which you can see happen in the kern.log at 14:49:31. can anyone shine any light on what is going on? seems to happen randomly without reason.22:10
OerHeksttmx, that would require LAMP installed, unlikely to do that on a live iso, unless you are willing to remaster22:10
ttmxWhat would be the best VM to run ubuntu in?22:10
ttmxAnd could I get that ubuntu system moved to a live usb?22:10
ttmx*cringes at his own questions*22:11
deus402when i lose connection, i completely lose the ethernet connection. I cannot ping the box by ip. it can either be fixed by locally clicking on the connection in network manager (?) in the taskbar, or by rebooting the router that it is connected too.22:11
OerHeksttmx, best VM? KVM i suppose. moving an installed system to live usb? no.22:12
ttmxAwn :(22:13
ttmxNo way?22:13
ttmxSo I cannot work on it on a vm and then boot it on another pc "natively"?22:13
OerHeksttmx, again no, any VM uses special drivers for display and such.22:15
memoryleakOerHeks, thanks that helps. Just last question, what would be the best runlevel to remount / as readonly, I'm assuming runlevel1?22:15
deus402tomreyn: anywhere else i should be looking? or any other info i can provide?22:16
OerHeksmemoryleak, runlevel1 i guess too, single user.22:17
tomreyndeus402: maybe "dmesg -T", if you haven't rebooted since22:17
deus402tomreyn: i have now rebooted since, but i did check dmesg after the event and there was nothing logged.22:18
ttmxCan I run a server inside a VM and have people in the same network connect to it?22:18
tomreyndeus402: the line "Jan 25 14:36:06 ubuntu whoopsie[1234]: [14:36:06] Cannot reach: https://daisy.ubuntu.com" suggests that some process crashed and the bug reporting utility tried to upload infomration about this crash, maybe if you can identify the crashing process you can identify what causes the network connection to fail.22:18
tomreyndeus402: okay without loigs it can be more diffivult. maybe you have something left in /var/crash/ ?22:20
deus402i like it. any idea where to start looking for that? does whoopsie have a log somewhere?22:20
jnewti lost my top and bottom bars on my desktop.  using ubuntu-mate22:20
tomreyndeus402: i'm afraid i dont know where it logs to. well, syslog apparently, based on that1 line, which is not telling.22:21

troy1Im getting super annoyed with permission issues of an external hard drive22:24
troy1its ext 4 and i want all users to read and write22:25
tomreyndeus402: right, those are not relevant for this issue. in kern.log you have "Jan 25 13:36:05 ubuntu NetworkManager[1199]: <info>  [1485372965.9311] dhcp4 (eth3): state changed bound -> bound", which is, in contrary to previous occasions, not followed up by dhcp client configurations22:25
k1l_troy1: how is it mounted? with gvfs or manually?22:25
troy1manually /etc/fstab i have it mounted to /media/external22:25
tomreyndeus402: this may indicate that your dhcp server 'forgot' to provide those configurations as part of the dhcp ack. or they were lost on the wire. or they wer elost by your dhcp client.22:26
tomreyndeus402: so you seem to have multiple NICs. if they're not all in use, then try to switch to a different one and see whether that solves the issue. also, try a different wire if you haven't. and correlate your routers' logs.22:27
troy1k1l_: this is my fstab http://paste.ubuntu.com/23866074/22:27
k1l_troy1: what are the permissions and owner of /media/external ?22:27
deus402i only have the one nic, not sure why it shows up as eth322:27
deus402already switched from cat5e to new cat6 cable, and switched ports on the router as well, just for fun.22:28
troy1it keeds changing which is annoying. permission not sure how to tell but i did set it 777. owner is qtuser.22:28
deus402it does seem to happen more often when under heavy network traffic to the server, but it also occaisonally happens while it's just idling.22:29

jnewthow do i get missing top and bottom bars back on ubuntu-mate (disappeared after updating software and driver and then rebooting).  Mouse was missing, now it's back but the bars are gone (along with clock, menus, etc)22:30
k1l_troy1: you can add "umask=000" as mount option in fstab22:31
tomreyndeus402: have you tried static adressing?22:31
deus402tomreyn, and by high traffic i mean i hit ~3300 time_wait connections under load. also, i see that the lease time dhcp lease time was set to 1 hour, which seems really low to me, but it was also looking for a new lease  about every 30 minutes.22:32
deus402it seems like a logical thing to try. i'll see if i can remotely lock myself out, heh.22:33
troy1k1l_: so right next to auto,user,umask=00022:33
troy1k1l_: and what's that suppose to do?22:34
tomreyndeus402: 's part of the specification that the dhcp client requests a new lease after $lease_time / 2.22:34
deus402set the ip statically, but am i correct in assuming that an hour lease is asininely low?22:36
tomreynif 1h is too low, maybe reconfigure it on the router. normally 1h is fine, though, and they may have set it to that globally since it does make sense for wireless routers.22:36
jnewtis there a way to rollback the last set of software updates?22:37
tomreyndeus402: you could also run an iperf between two LAN hosts and see whether it helps you reproduce the issue, which can then make debugging easier. you could then take a packet dump for a short time and reproduce it again, which may help further diagnosing the issue.22:39
tomreynjnewt: not really / not easily. you can downgrade packages but it's not recommended or easily done (when it comes to resolving dependencies).22:40
tomreynjnewt: why would you need to, though?22:40
jnewttomreyn: did the set of recommended updates (on ubuntu-mate), and now i've lost my menu bars and mate-panel --reset (the only fix i could find), just kicks the desktop Home icon up and down by a bit.22:41
jnewti'm on 16.04.1 LTS22:44
k1l_jnewt: does the guest account work?22:45

telunusI'm running a custom session with Compiz as my window manager and cairo-dock to launch things, but something else is drawing a wallpaper (which means that cube transparency isn't working with compiz).  Any thoughts on what it could be?23:20
k1l_jnewt: you could try to use the other nvidia driver offered in the system settings and see if that works better23:20
jnewtk1l_: i only had two selections in the menu (when i could get to the menu's (one was the X Server noveau and the other was nvidia binary)23:20
k1l_jnewt: hmm, ok. what card is it?23:21
jnewtk1l_: m200023:21
k1l_ok, that should be supported since 361 driver23:22
Mskhi  ho23:24
jnewtk1l_: i wonder if the resolution could be messed up to the point where the bars are off the screen?23:24
jnewtalthough my mouse won't go off the screen, so maybe not23:24
k1l_jnewt: yes, but you could click it there and get the menue then23:25
jnewti def can't get any menus clicking around at the top or bottom23:26
jnewtcould it be something with other hardware? mobo, proc, etc drivers?23:26
telunusHere are my processes in case it helps see what might be painting a wallpaper, but I don't seem to see anything there that should be.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/23866391/23:28

humoroustwoHello, I'm having an issue creating a hotspot on ubuntu 16.10. On the networkmanager widget, it just shows the 'connecting' animation, then connects back to the default access point23:32
k1l_i still think this is driver related.23:32
=== bazhang_ is now known as bazhang
k1l_jnewt: you could add this ppa https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa?field.series_filter=xenial and install the nvidia 378 for testing23:33
Mskhi hi23:43
HumanAIis this the darkweb?23:56
bazhangHumanAI, ubuntu support issue?23:56
exaddoes anyone know how I could go about changing /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies and scaling_max_freq to match the actual speed of my cpu? I managed to change scaling_governor to performance since it wouldn't scale up under load. but I get permission denied even using su to push a script.23:57
jnewtk1l_: i've added the ppa and ran apt-get update.  where can i switch between the different available drivers now that i have no menus?23:57
Ben64exad: those aren't changeable23:58
HumanAIlet bazhang anser it pls23:58
k1l_jnewt: sudo apt purge nvidia..... package. then install the nvidia package named on the ppa page i linked.23:58
bazhangHumanAI, don't do that here23:58
exadBen64: is there a way to get it to recognize the 4ghz speed? It's stuck at 3.3ghz which is even lower than the stock clock.23:58
Ben64exad: what cpu is it23:58
bazhangchatter somewhere else HumanAI23:59
HumanAIthats what you get for being friendlly23:59
exadan amd fx 832023:59
Ben64and what does scaling_available_frequencies say23:59
jnewtk1l_: i don't have the nvidia pacakge, so purge didn't do anything.  i did follow the instructions on the page you linked23:59
