tomreyni detest their meltdown + spectre PR. it's hardly possible to find the bits of actual information in there and interpret it correctly.00:02
tomreynamd's "we're the untouchables" approach is not really better, though.00:03
daftykinsand Apple claiming they fixed it all in patches, oy00:08
tomreynwell a microcode update is a patch for them00:09
daftykinsnot a 100% fix though00:26
JanCI wonder if there is an archive somewhere of "Ubuntu sightings in popular media" (movies, series, documentaries, etc.)?03:41

lotuspsychjehey hey EriC^^12:45
EriC^^hey lotuspsychje12:47

lotuspsychjehey BluesKaj12:57
BluesKajHiyas all12:57
EriC^^hey BluesKaj12:58
BluesKajHey lotuspsychje, EriC^^   ;-)12:58
BluesKajback on debian again12:59
lotuspsychjeBluesKaj: more stable?13:11
BluesKajI just like having it around , yeah it's like a rock :-)13:19
BluesKajstill have Kubuntu 17.10 and 18.0413:20
lotuspsychjeBluesKaj: you tested loading times to desktop on bionic?13:21
lotuspsychjeim having a bug that takes long time from login to desktop13:21
ubot5Ubuntu bug 1742063 in systemd (Ubuntu) "Systemd taking long time to boot into desktop 18.04" [Undecided,New]13:23
BluesKajlotuspsychje, yeah I had a long one too, but that was after debian was installed , the swap UUID had changed so i reinstalled the new entry from blkid13:23
BluesKajjust installed the nvidia driver here on decian , so I'll have to reboot anyway, I'll check Bionic boot time13:25
BluesKajtook about 45 secs to boot Bionic to the desktop13:33
lotuspsychjeyeah same here13:33
lotuspsychjeBluesKaj: thats on kde on your side?13:34
BluesKajit's on a HDD, so not as fasr as debian and 17.10, which are on a ssd13:34
BluesKajyup all kde here13:35
lotuspsychjeBluesKaj: could you systemd-analyze blame plz?13:35
DJonesAfternoon all13:36
lotuspsychjehey DJones13:37
DJonesHi lotuspsychje13:37
lotuspsychjeBluesKaj: here's mine https://hastebin.com/inapexejuc.go13:38
pauljwhi everyone14:23
BluesKaj'Morning pauljw14:24
pauljwgood morning BluesKaj :)14:25
BluesKajhow are you on this fine sat morning pauljw?.... jan thaw here , above freezing with sunshine :-)14:26
pauljwyeah, same here.  i'm doing fine, you?  still white out there, but going to 50 this afternoon.14:28
BluesKajyeagh same here, but the snow is taking a beating14:33
BluesKajour local ski hill is in trouble , as are all the snowmobile trails14:33
BluesKajreal winter has moved north this last couple of weeks14:37
lotuspsychjeBluesKaj: ive tested a system with nouveau/wayland with nvidia graphics working like a charm14:38
BluesKajyeah, nouveau works to some degree, i'm sure, but with multiple monitors?14:39
lotuspsychjedidnt test that part yet14:40
jernouveau is garbage ... multiple monitors doesn't work, random lockups with a 1080 ti, poor performance, no cuda...16:32
lotuspsychjejer: with wayland comming as default, you have alternatives?16:33
jerlotuspsychje, waiting to see when/if nvidia will port their proprietary drivers to wayland before upgrading16:33
lotuspsychjejer: alot of wayland users out there already on fedora16:34
jeri'm not on 17.10 yet, and won't move up to any version that doesn't also give me an X11 option because these are things i need. nouveau doesn't work for me unfortunately =/16:34
jerok that's fine for them16:34
lotuspsychjejer: we'll have to wait and see whats gonna happen at bionic release16:35
jerwell i suppose i sohuldn't say that, i do have one computer on 17.10 using wayland, but it's using the intel integrated graphics for gpu, and the nvidia gpu in it is not used for display at all. my main workstation though has no integrated gpu, so my choices are either go out and buy something with good driver support for use under wayland and upgrade, or stay where i am. =/16:35
jerlotuspsychje, yeah i know. if i get cramped for time, it'll end up being taking a weekend and moving this machine off ubuntu and onto something else16:36
lotuspsychjejer: you mean another flavor?16:36
jerlotuspsychje, no i mean a different distribution16:36
jeranyway, that's how markets work =] something not satisfying your need or want, find something else. i like the idea of wayland, but i do need proprietary nvidia drivers or the nouveau drivers to get stable and fully featured soon. the latter is unlikely to happen (re: fully featured)16:37
lotuspsychjejer: i think we at an impasse right now, ppl saying xorg is dead, future is wayland..but wayland not ready..16:39
lotuspsychjeand will other distro's do the wayland move like systemd did16:40
jerlotuspsychje, it's a transitionary thing; wayland will never be ready if you don't force it on people -- more people == more bug reports == more interest in fixing them == quicker moving the product; sucks for users in the short term, but will be better in the long term. yes, xorg is not a modern rendering / windowing system16:40
lotuspsychjeyeah i agree on the forcing part, alot of bugs created on 17.10 and higher already about it16:41
lotuspsychjejer: im testing bionic on 3 machines, 2 out of 3 still need xorg...and the funny part the only wayland going smooth is on nouveau lol16:43
jerlotuspsychje, heh16:44
jerof all the linux systems i have that have gpus, only one has anything other than an nvidia gpu for display -- and it's an intel based laptop =]16:45
jerbut that's also got problems re: power management in 17.10 so it stays off most of the time16:46
TJ-Does anyone remember the Ubuntu Holly Holbach release?16:59
lotuspsychjewhats that about TJ-17:01
TJ-I just found it listed on changelogs.ubuntu.com :)17:01
TJ-made me giggle... I suspect Seb Holbach added it and 'Holly' is his partner: http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-unit-testing17:02
TJ-obviously a 'red' herring release :D17:02
TJ-tomreyn: there was something I spotted I was going to tell you about... but it's gone out of my head now!17:10
tomreynTJ-: sometime during the next night you'll remember, be sure to run to your keyboard and type it immediately!17:10
tomreynTJ-: before *I* forget (although i got to be afk for a bit shortly, sorry): you had shared your mainline kernel download script with me a while ago, wget_kernel_mainline.sh - i forgot to take note about a source location. do you have it on your github repository or somewhere else in git?17:11
TJ-tomreyn: oh! I know. in the changelog server's meta-release entries they change the "ReleaseNotes" link when it goes EOL... I had the hair-brained idea of having update-manager use that as a trigger to warn of EOL but then realised it won't change until the EOL day itself17:12
TJ-tomreyn: haha, I updated that recently to a little cleverer... let me check where it is17:12
TJ-tomreyn: got it: http://iam.tj/projects/ubuntu/  ... you might also be interested in "grub_custom_sort_menu.tar.gz" which creates GRUB sub-menus for mainline and RC builds and prevents them being listed ahead of the regular Ubuntu kernels.17:14
TJ-my wrapper for dpkg-divert is there too which I use with my package-content-replacement tooling to move files under /etc/dpkg-divert/{orginal-path} and then symlink my tooling from /usr/local/*17:17
TJ-I'm currently tidying up all my tooling and adding documentation then I'm going to publically share the /usr/local/ file-system I share locally so anyone can mount/copy it17:19
tomreynTJ-: thank you! have you heard about versionioning systems? ;)17:47
TJ-tomreyn: you mean git... i heard a whisper :p17:47
tomreynthis kind of sounds like a good use case.17:48
TJ-tomreyn: the reason for sharing /usr/local/ is so it can be mounted over NFS or sshfs17:48
TJ-all my remote systems share it over VPN but there's so many useful things it makes sense to export the entire FS for hackers to enjoy17:49
tomreyni guess it would amke sense for your use case17:51
tomreyn*also make17:51
TJ-There's 15 years of accumulated tools and customisations I use so regularly I'm lost without them17:51
tomreynespecially those i would not want to keep elsewhere than in a versioning system17:52
tomreynwell you know what you're doing, i'm just trying to evangelize ;)17:53
TJ-I use git for developing, even for /etc/ (triggered by an inotify watch for any WRITE,CLOSE changes)17:56
tomreynah no that hooks into apt, inotify is even better i guess17:57
tomreyn!info etckeeper17:58
ubot5etckeeper (source: etckeeper): store /etc in git, mercurial, bzr or darcs. In component main, is optional. Version 1.18.5-1ubuntu1 (artful), package size 27 kB, installed size 154 kB17:58
TJ-something I developed myself back around 2007 I think17:58
tomreynwasn't inotify only invented in 2010? ;)17:59
tomreynoh 2005 already17:59
TJ-originally it was on a cron job then gained some sophistication17:59
TJ-I think I got into inotify around 2008 when debugging it18:00
tomreynwikipedia: "Inotify was created by John McCutchan,[1] and it was merged into the Linux kernel mainline in kernel version 2.6.13, released on August 29, 2005;[2] later kernel versions included further improvements. The required library interfaces were added into the GNU C Library (glibc) in its version 2.4, released in March 2006, while the support for inotify was completed in glibc version 2.5, released in September 2006.[3]"18:00
tomreyndebugging a file system filter sounds like ... oh look, a unicorn!18:01
tomreynif i was able to, it would not be  my favourite hobby18:01
TJ-brings back memories actually; first major bug I found in Linux was around 2005 with a dmraid 1+0 on 4 disks where the kernel would cause the disk drives to crash their heads repeatedly against the end-stops because it was reading the MBR PT from the underlying disks and trying to seek on the first disk of a pair to a sector on the 2nd disk (which works when looking at the MD device of course)18:05
tomreyni bet this saved a lot of people some money, including myself, thanks.18:06
tomreynwell not just money, also a lot of annoyance / labor18:06
tomreyni'm impressed, and conclude you must be more than 20 years of age. :-P18:07
tomreyn(i'm not 20 either)18:07
TJ-not sure, had a to-and-fro with Linus in the LKML over it because my patch was in the partition handling code and he said it should be elsewhere, but couldn't say where, then when I produced a suitable patch refused to accept it because he didn't believe my name is "Tj" so I told him to go stuff it18:07
tomreynthats your actual first name?18:08
tomreynor did he just not like you abbreviating it18:08
TJ-that's my entire name18:08
TJ-I have this argument with so many people who try to tell me it can't be my name, or it's an acronym18:09
tomreyndoh, that's short18:09
TJ-hence my domain name to reinforce the point :)18:09
TJ-pronounced "teej"18:09
tomreyni thought it was that domain name because you did not want to by the TLD.18:10
tomreyn..and did not want to expand the acroynm18:11
TJ-haha, I actually tried to buy it in the early 2000s when the USA company that was operating it was suspended, but it was handed over to the Tajik government as it is their CC TLD18:11
tomreynit's now managed by astute.ly though, which also do .ly, i think, and are just some agency18:12
tomreynisnt it?18:12
tomreynah no i made that up apparently18:13
TJ-No, astute.ly is another of my domains18:13
tomreynoh it seemed familiar18:13
tomreyngtg again, bbl18:14
tomreynthanks again for the updated script18:14
tomreynoh and if you can fix ubottu's HTTPS by chance...18:14
TJ-ubottus!? not another broken18:14
tomreynwell i just mean the website is unavailable for some days now18:40
TJ-tomreyn: I think I lost track; I've been redeveloping everything internally before pushing it out - planning on nuking all the existing data-center stuff so not been bothering to maintain it18:42
tomreynokay, it doesn't seem like anyone can remember, and Pici (bot owner) doesn't respond, so...18:44
TJ-tomreyn: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you mean ubottu's factoids?18:46
tomreynTJ-: right19:23
tomreynaka https://ubottu.com/19:24
tomreynany idea how can fix it?19:28
oerhekswas there ever a certificate for ubottu.com?19:29
daftykinsi heard the ops alienated and then kicked out the real maker of ubottu19:30
TJ-openssl s_client reports connect: Connection refused19:31
tomreynnetcat, too20:05
tomreynand yes there was a certificate for ubottu.com20:06
tomreyngandi DV20:07
tomreynthere must have been a later one, though20:08
tomreynlast spotted 4 days ago: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:6Tp2t0tW2vAJ:https://ubottu.com/20:10
tomreynbug reported :) maybe someone will read it sometime.20:25
tomreyni like how there is a bug tag "mess"20:30
TJ-it's easier than trying to remember CVE numbers20:30
