Budgiinew_user_123 what flavor of linux is that?00:04
subcoolok, ive learned ignored issues means is something people should just know. But i dont. Why in the hell is plasma shell, or kwin using 3gb of memory00:05
new_user_123Budgii, lubuntu 17.1000:05
CuriousErnestBrodoes ubuntu support intel DVMT?00:05
CuriousErnestBrobecause I changed my pre alloc DVMT from 32MB to 128MB (hackintosh purposes)00:06
CuriousErnestBronow I'm going back to ubuntu and I was wondering what effect this would have00:06
TJ-new_user_123: nothing helpful there, all looks correct00:07
subcoolTJ-, your a god here.. im sure my question is easy.00:08
TJ-new_user_123: the only thing I can imagine is there's insufficient video memory, but I cannot imagine how it'd result in what you are seeing00:08
Docfxitnacc, I am only trying to copy from one location to one location.00:08
new_user_123neither can I...00:09
Docfxitnacc, From etc/asterisk00:09
naccDocfxit: ok, then your comment is rather wrong00:11
TJ-new_user_123: good news... you're not alone, and with a similar Samsung monitor too. See https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/samsung-monitor-cuts-off-edges-of-desktop-627413/00:11
naccDocfxit: if you are trying to copy SRC to DEST, you only specifcy SRC and DEST, you currently have three paths specified00:11
Docfxitnacc, To the PC at   The shared folder that can been seen on my LAN at backup/asteriskbackup/00:11
TJ-new_user_123: there it talks about the VGA connector: " The problem is an incompatibility with the motherboard and the Samsung display ..."00:12
Docfxitnacc, Please let me know how I am supposed to correct that.00:12
naccDocfxit: on the machine you are running rsync, you want to sync a local directory to some network path?00:12
new_user_123TJ-, okay, but my display is not connected to the mobo00:12
QuenzGoing to shower while stuff installs, then I might be busy in town for a bit00:12
TJ-new_user_123: in that case the AMD GPU was on the mobo itself00:13
new_user_123oh, i see00:13
naccDocfxit: rsync -avzP path/to/local/directory user@host:/path/to/remote/directory. To know whether you want or not the trailing slashes on paths, read the manpage00:13
Docfxitnacc, Yes00:13
naccDocfxit: specifically under 'Advanced Usage'00:13
naccDocfxit: yes, what?00:13
subcoolthats my KDE login.00:14
subcoolim so tired of this00:14
TJ-new_user_123: it seems it's the monitor... here's another: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2667487/native-resolution-screen.html00:14
naccsubcool: you probably should change your password(s)00:14
TJ-new_user_123: there the reporter says "If i take a screenshot it still shows the areas I can't see."00:14
new_user_123TJ-, yeah, but the problem only occurs with kernel newer than 3.1300:14
subcoolnacc, yea....00:14
new_user_123TJ-, it's clearly my issue, but still, I got *perfect* picture w/ 3.13 on 14.0400:15
Docfxitnacc, Is user@host: replaced by the IP address or is that a reserved word?00:15
naccDocfxit: user@host would depend on how you connect ot he remote; it'd be a username on the remote and the remote hostname (or IP)00:15
new_user_123TJ-, which means something changed in the way the kernel handles radeon open soruce drivers00:15
subcoolTJ-, please.. im about to smash shit.00:15
naccsubcool: did it start all of a sudden?00:16
subcoolnacc, yea.00:16
TJ-new_user_123: right, so it must be a timing issue. Do "xvidtune -show | tee xvidtune-bad.log" then  reboot into a working kernel and do "xvidtune -show | tee xvidtune-good.log"00:16
TJ-new_user_123: then pastebin the content of both files for us to compare00:17
TJ-subcool: I can only deal with one issue at a time, especially when it's complicated like new_user_123's issue is00:17
new_user_123TJ-, here, the broken one http://termbin.com/kdf3600:17
naccsubcool: no updates installed, or anything?00:18
naccsubcool: new updates, i mean00:18
subcoolTJ-, nah, i understand. Youre just the shit.00:18
new_user_123reloading into older kernel00:18
new_user_123(meaning I will have to plug another hard drive)00:19
subcoolI had a login issue last week. Googled it, most respnoses lead to updating the KDE to a beta. So i did. Still didnt help. So, i thought about it, instead of googling. And realized somehow, i ran our of storage. So i cleand it up... and... evetually it started working again.00:19
naccsubcool: 'a beta'?00:20
naccsubcool: are you still running a beta of kde?00:20
subcoolThe beta of KDE..00:20
naccsubcool: what exactly did you do to get to that beta?00:20
subcoolofcourse.. im not great at uninstalling interfaces.00:20
naccsubcool: my guess thats what is broken00:20
naccsubcool: betas are generally ... well, beta00:20
naccsubcool: not meant to be used except for testing00:20
subcoolyeah... agreed00:20
TJ-new_user_123: isn't the older kernel alongside the current kernel?00:21
Docfxitnacc, So if I understand it now it would look like sudo rsync -avzP /etc/asterisk docfxit@
naccDocfxit: with a : between the IP and the path00:21
naccDocfxit: otherwise that whole suffix gets interpreted as a host00:21
subcoolBrb, just found out my dad had a Heart attack.. brb00:21
LuMintcould you please remind me the " * tee " command?00:23

TJ-LuMint == new_user_123 ?00:29
LuMintI don't have the backlog here00:29
TJ-LuMint: ...  right, so it must be a timing issue. Do "xvidtune -show | tee xvidtune-bad.log" then  reboot into a working kernel and do "xvidtune -show | tee xvidtune-good.log"00:29
TJ-LuMint: hang on, you rebooted on another PC?00:29
subcool Ok, nacc SO... WOuld it be best just to reinstall the OS? Thats my Goto honestly.00:29
LuMintbecause I can't have a "good" kernel on that one00:30
TJ-LuMint: a different PC to the one with the problem?00:30
LuMintTJ-: oh, sorry. It's the same PC. Only the hard drive is different.00:30
TJ-LuMint: Oh, OK, I was gonna say :D00:30
naccsubcool: i still don't know what you did to install the beta00:30
naccsubcool: to know if it's revertible, or not00:30
LuMintTJ-: is there any difference? I mean, I don't have the previous pastebin at hand00:30
TJ-LuMint: no difference!00:31
LuMintwas my impression, too...00:31
Docfxithow can I change dir in Ubuntu.  CD doesn't work.00:36
TJ-LuMint: Which kernel are you on now, and which version has the issue? There may be a clue in the commit history for the radeon driver00:36
TJ-Docfxit: "cd path/to/dir" - lower case always00:36
LuMintTJ-: 3.13 doesn't have it. 3.16 already has it.00:36
TJ-LuMint: so whatever is wrong is between 3.13 and 3.1600:37
LuMinthowever, grub is also affectec00:38
DocfxitTJ-, cd home    doesn't work.00:38
TJ-LuMint: that doesn't make sense /unless/ GRUB is being put into a GFX mode that causes the issue.00:39
DocfxitTJ-, No such file or directory.00:39
TJ-Docfxit: "cd $HOME"00:39
subcoolnacc, Its cool. I keep this OS to a very simple Setup due to nonsense like this. Ill just reinstall. Thanks though.00:40
subcoolTJ-, hey.. sorry to pressure you dude. I know youre busy. I was just trying to get an experts opinion. Ill see ya around. I appreacate you though. Help or not. YOu are the shit. keep it up man.00:41
DocfxitTJ-, ls gives me files and folders that I don't think are in home.00:41
LuMintTJ-: thanks for your researches00:42
LuMintTJ-: i guess the article you linked indicates that using DVI could help00:43
LuMinte.g. with a DVI-HDMI cable00:43
TJ-Docfxit: "pwd" will tell you the Present Working Directory (like Windows cwd)00:43
TJ-LuMint: Yes, I'd go that way, digital is always bettter00:44
DocfxitI have a shared folder that I can see from windows called myfiles.  I can't find it in Ubuntu.00:45
naccDocfxit: shared how?00:46
Docfxitnacc, I found it.00:47
Docfxitnacc, Thanks00:47
Docfxitpwd shows me I'm currently in /home/docfxit   When I do cd Dnload it doesn't change to that folder.00:49
naccDocfxit: are you typoing?00:49
nacc"Dnload" seems like it's probbly wrong00:49
fghytrrtyfghjoin #ethereum00:49
DocfxitThe first letter of Dnload is capatalized.00:49
tatertotsDocfxit: case sensitivity matters00:50
DocfxitI see the Dnload folder with ls00:50
tatertotsDocfxit: Hi does NOT equal hi00:50
DocfxitWhen I try cd dnload it comes back with No such file or directory .00:51
naccDocfxit: dnload != Dnload00:51
tatertotsDocfxit: you seem like a smart screen name, i'll give you 3 minutes to figure it out on your own.00:51
DocfxitI got it.00:52
tt21can someone help me with ubuntu as a quest system in virtualbox (windows 7 host)?00:52

Docfxittatertots, What am I the target for?00:53
Docfxittatertots, What does that mean?00:53
tatertotsDocfxit: for "help" or "assistance"00:54
tatertotsDocfxit: duh!00:54
brahimthis is my first time on IRC :)00:54
DocfxitI am trying to run a file called BackupFiles.sh.  I'm getting an error saying Permission denied.00:55
brahimrun with sudo00:55
tt21welcome brahim00:55
naccDocfxit: well, is it executable?00:56
LuMintHas meltdown been fixed in x86 ubuntu systems? I'm running an x86 system on a 64bit CPU and would like to know if I'm vulnerable00:56
naccLuMint: #ubuntu-hardened00:57
TJ-LuMint: not for 32-bit no00:57
LuMintTJ-: can I install a 64-bit kernel on a 32-bit system or it's a stupid idea?00:57
tatertotsDocfxit: you have a technical problem or inquiry. true or false00:58
TJ-LuMint: yes, of course, 64-bit kernel + 32-bit userspace is entirely possible00:58
Docfxitnacc, I added the properties to execute.  Now I'm getting an error unable to execute.  sudo ./BackupFiles.sh00:58
Docfxittatertots, True.00:58
LuMintTJ-: okay, how do I go about it? I would prefer the package manager to handle the updates as it does now...00:58
naccDocfxit: `ls -ahl BackupFiles.sh` in a pastebin00:59
TJ-LuMint: you'd have to add amd64 as a foreign architecture then install the "linux-image-lowlatency:amd64" package00:59
tatertotsDocfxit: you are chatting from the computer that exhibits your problem or symptom(s) right now. true or false01:00
Docfxittatertots, false.01:00
TJ-LuMint: so "sudo dpkg --add-architecture amd64" then "sudo apt update" then "sudo apt install linux-image-lowlatency:amd64"01:00
LuMintTJ-: generic woudln't do?01:00
tt21can someone help me with ubuntu as a quest system in virtualbox (windows 7 host)?01:00
nacctatertots: are you actually tryingto help?01:00
TJ-LuMint: well, for desktops, lowlatency is better. -generic is OK on servers non-interactive PCs01:01
nacctatertots: rightnow, it sounds like spam01:01
naccDocfxit: please just pastebin the output01:01
LuMintbeen using generic all along...01:01
TJ-LuMint: it's the default, not sure why01:01
tatertotsnacc: i think you and everyone else knows full well beyond a reasonable doubt that i am NOT spam. true or false01:01
TJ-LuMint: -lowlatency makes the desktop much more responsive under load01:01
LuMintthank you!01:02
nacctatertots: you are not being helpful right now.01:02
LuMintwill I be able to install statically linked software built for amd64?01:02
LuMinte.g. firefox builds01:02
TJ-nacc: I quite like Mr Binary tatertots  :)01:02
naccDocfxit: it doesn't feel like this should take quite this long, are you still there?01:03
TJ-LuMint: you can install full 64-bit linked binaries. To install 64-bit versions you just add the :amd64 suffix to package names when installing them01:03
Cr0hi i installed wine , when i run a program i got this wine: '/home/crypto' is not owned by you, refusing to create a configuration directory there01:04

Cr0any solution?01:04
tatertotsDocfxit: it happens in this "environment"...my creator is aware of the "bugs" in the environment01:04
LuMintTJ-: okay, thank you. Let's see how the new kernel works for me.01:04
Larg8ohello, can someone explain to me why I can only send mail since my vps with telnet, but that I use mail then I always have an error of the smtp receiver? 550     Unroutable sender address (in reply to RCPT TO command)01:04
Docfxitnacc, I'm here.01:05
naccDocfxit: ok, have the pastebin?01:05
naccDocfxit: did you remove the pastebin?01:06
naccDocfxit: says it has been removed, are you sure on the url?01:06
DocfxitMaybe it's https://pastebin.com/1aAW2R5C01:07
Cr0any answer?01:07
naccDocfxit: can you pastebin the script itself?01:08
* TJ- suspects script is missing shebang01:08
naccTJ-: yeah01:08
tatertotsLarg8o: appears you have trouble "routing to an address"01:10
LuMintTJ-: it did work! However, I seem to be unable to delete the older x86 kernel.01:11
tatertotsnacc: are you one of the mod/op humans?01:11
nacctatertots: no01:11
TJ-LuMint: keep it, it won't hurt01:12
naccDocfxit: sh -x ./BackupFiles.sh01:12
LuMintthe suggested solution in synaptic looks like it would break everything https://imgur.com/a/kRqZT01:12
LuMintTJ-: i'd rather get rid of it.01:12
tatertotsnacc: so you have no "group" behind you, it's only the 1 opinion that's between those ears of yours that have determined that "i am NOT helpful"? true or false01:13
TJ-LuMint: In which case you need something like "sudo apt remove linux-image-<version>-generic"01:13
TJ-tatertots: leave it; nacc doesn't need a 'group' behind him, he's one of the best supporters and Ubuntu developers01:13
tatertotsnacc: is there at least one other human in here that you could get to "co sign" or at least bribe to lie to agree with that statement?01:14
LuMintTJ-: http://okturing.com/src/2064/body it looks weird.01:14
TJ-tatertots: your style sometimes comes over as petty01:14
LuMintespecially this bit: After this operation, 63,5 kB disk space will be freed.01:14
TJ-LuMint: maybe it was autoremoved? Check what is installed: "apt list 'linux-image*'  "01:15
Docfxitnacc, That worked much better.  Thanks.  Now I'm getting ssh: connection refused.  I guess it's trying to FTP the files.01:15

TJ-LuMint: ooops, this would be better: "apt list 'linux-image*' --installed "01:16
Docfxitnacc, I have a shared folder on the windows machine.  I don't have an SSH server running.01:16
naccDocfxit: i don't know how to rsync to windows, you would need to ask the windows channel01:17
naccDocfxit: rsync by default uses ssh, you'd need to specify a different protocal01:17
Docfxitnacc, Great.  Thank you very much for all your help.01:18
TJ-Docfxit: or, if possible, install the Windows Subsystem for Linux and run the openssh-sever (if it provides it)01:18
naccDocfxit: you probably need samba otherwise01:18
Docfxitnacc, I have samba01:19
stan7how can i find my driver? 09:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM108M [GeForce 930M] (rev a2)01:19
LuMintTJ-: i'll probably leave it be for the time being... Just had a weird bug - the text input was slowed down enormously, could barely type. Restarted X - but it didn't help. So i had to reboot.01:20
LuMintTJ-: and there was nothing in  iotop that could explain it.01:21
TJ-LuMint: hmmm! shoot 1 bug and another pops up01:21
LuMintshould I probably replace all my packages with amd64 versions?01:22
TJ-stan7: "lspci -nnk -s 09:00.0"01:22
naccDocfxit: if you have samba, then you don't need rsync01:22
naccDocfxit: just moutn the samba share and copy the files01:22
TJ-LuMint: no, you might end up with many more issues!01:22
* TJ- runs away01:22
tatertotsTJ-: you've been in here for a while...i've seen you...and dude..you couldn't judge my style if you wore bi focals, and if my creator told you about your style..it'd be that you lack it and you've been found to be "incorrect" on multiple occasions01:23
Bashing-omstan7: 'dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia ' for what is installed .01:23
LuMintTJ-: actually, I thought of a command like: dpkg -l | xargs apt install --reconfigure $1:amd6401:23
tatertotsTJ-: creator says he will start to "highlight" your mistakes or gaps in knowledge if you continue to bother me01:23
TJ-tatertots: if you carry on like this you will be removed, You're breaking the Ubuntu Code of Conduct01:24
tatertotsall you had to do is resist "pack mentality" started by nacc ...but not mentally strong enough01:25
tatertotsso do what you will01:25
tatertotsi'm on high ground...intellectually....and you know it01:25
* LuMint is on high ground... geographically...01:26
Docfxitnacc, What would the copy command look like?01:26

stan7when i type: dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia01:30
stan7, i got nothing01:30
TJ-LuMint: must be an input/event issue01:30
Bashing-omstan7: ^ says you are using the open source driver nouveau . Is there a problem with it ?01:30
LuMintTJ-: howdo  fxt01:30
Docfxitnacc, What would the mount look like?01:30
LuMintTJ-: howw do Ifix it?01:31
naccDocfxit: i dont' use samba, but i think you can do it from the file browser if it's visible on your network01:31
Docfxitnacc, I'll try to figure it out.01:32
stan7everything fine, problem is when i use an ide for example like lazarus, or pyqt, or some software like those, the buttons are too small and i cant work , but everything else is great, its not a big problem for everyday use, but sometimes when i need to use a software looks strange, small buttons01:32
Docfxitnacc, Thanks a bunch.01:32
TJ-LuMint: return to the 32-bit kernel? Or switch to running a full 64-bit install. I wouldn't recommend just installing the :amd64 packages on the :i386 install though, there are things that will break01:32
Bashing-omstan7: I do not know what to advise in such a case .01:33
stan7maybe its not the driver, right?01:34
stan7what is nouveau? is a driver?01:35
Bashing-omstan7: Sounds more to me a theming issue .01:36
TJ-stan7: that sounds like a desktop DPI/scaling issue. What resolution is the display using? what does "xvidtune -show" report ?01:36
stan7everything is fine, problem is when i use some software01:36
gt8ost4ldoes anybody know why libre office writer opens twice on the gnome panel?01:36

TJ-stan7: aha! you've got a HiDPI display01:37
stan7what do you mean?01:37
TJ-stan7: so I bet the desktop is scaling as if it's only HD which is why some components look very small at times01:38
stan7sorry but im not very good at linux yet, i try to do my best, what do you recommend to do?01:38
TJ-stan7: the desktop defaults to assuming 96 pixels per inch, which is OK for up to 1920x1080 on most displays, but on yours 96 pixels is 1/2 inch!01:39
Bashing-omTJ-: stan7 : this : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HiDPI .01:39
TJ-stan7: which desktop environment are you using?01:39
stan7kali linux01:39

hosedandconfusedHi. I hosed my hdd from the command line.01:54
Guest16308but i use ubuntu from live cd01:54
hosedandconfusedI'm using 14.04.01:55
Bashing-omhosedandconfused: what does " hosed my hdd from the command line." mean ?01:56
stan7hey guys01:56
stan7the arandr is solving my problem01:56
stan7y trying what is the best01:57
hosedandconfusedI tried to remove a directory from the command line.01:57
hosedandconfusedAnd I made it recursive and forced.01:57
hosedandconfusedBut, I plugged in a USB stick with PuppyLinux on it and I can still see my files on the hard drive.01:58
hosedandconfusedI'm wondering what I hosed to make my machine unbootable.01:58
TJ-hosedandconfused: can you access the user's home directory on the hard drive?01:59
Bashing-omhosedandconfused: To be honest, if you removed a system directory - you back up your personal data and RE-install .01:59
TJ-hosedandconfused: if so, can you see a file called .bash_history (if using a GUI you may need to tell the file manager to show hidden files)02:00
TJ-hosedandconfused: if you open that file we can see exactly what command you executed and figure out what the damage might be02:01
Bashing-omhosedandconfused: ^^ that is why we follow him :)02:02
hosedandconfusedHmm... using Geany to open .bash_history from my userland acct, I get: The file "mnt/home/home/<user>/.bash_history" does not look like a text file or the file encoding is not supported.02:05
hosedandconfusedLooking at root's bash history...02:06
hosedandconfusedI did the rm -rf *.*02:07
hosedandconfusedSo, how hosed am I?02:08
hosedandconfusedI thought I was user, but I see I was wrong.02:08
hosedandconfusedAnd if I did remove everthing, why can I still see all the files when booting from a linux USB stick?02:10
TJ-hosedandconfused: did you issue the rm -rf *.* in the /  (root of file-system) directory ?02:12
hosedandconfusedLike a powerful idiot. Yes.02:13
TJ-hosedandconfused: you're VERY lucky then, 'rm' by default does  "--preserve-root"02:13

LuMintwill something break if I copy the /etc/ from 14.04 to 17.10?02:13
TJ-hosedandconfused: so it looks like, if you see all files, the boot failure may be caused by something else02:13
LuMinti mean, apart from obvious init differences02:14
TJ-LuMint: probably; config files will have changed syntax over that period02:14

DanielPowerNLHi. For the past year I've been using xfs as my file system on my desktop and laptop. There have been a couple of times where I accidentally struck my computer while it was running, causing the hard drive to miswrite, and resulting in an unbootable system. The two times this happened, I ran xfs_repair, and it automatically fixed the issue. I'm trying to decide whether to use xfs again, or to switch to ext4 for my next install. D02:15
DanielPowerNLand how does it compare to xfs for repairing corrupted data?02:15
DanielPowerNLThe reason I'm considering switching is because xfs does not support shrinking partitions. It's the only downside I've found in years of use, but it is annoying.02:16
Bashing-omhosedandconfused: in / a " ls -al *.* ] only shows that the initrd.img, initrd.img.old, and vmlinuz.old are affected :)02:16
TJ-DanielPowerNL: causing corruption via knocking the disk suggests it suffered surface damage. Have you done a SMART health check on it?02:16
DanielPowerNLTJ: Yes, the drive is completely healthy according to its SMART data. It continued working fine after the two times this happened. I'm not asking for a solution to that. I'm simply asking if ext4 has similar repair capabilities to xfs.02:18
TJ-DanielPowerNL: that's good to hear! I'd be concerned it might suddenly die. Seen that too many times for comfort.02:20
TJ-DanielPowerNL: ext4 has fsck.ext4 which repairs the FS in the same way I presume, although I'm not familiar with precisely what xfs_repair does.02:21
stan7mmm now i fixed the qt designer resolution but now my xchat resolution is not good02:24
hosedandconfusedYeah... I think the best option for me is to offload my files and the reinstall.02:28
hosedandconfusedThanks TJ!02:28

GizmoRomickI am running Ubuntu 16.04 using the Plasma 5 desktop.  I used to be able to mount my NAS smb share to a folder in my home folder using "sudo mount -t cifs -o...", but now I get mount error(5): Input/output error.  Any idea what may be causing this?05:44
lotuspsychjeGizmoRomick: input/output error are mostly hd getting bad/broken05:48
lotuspsychjeGizmoRomick: perhaps start with a SMART test on that harddisk?05:48
GizmoRomicklotuspsychje: the drive is a NAS with 4 HDDs in RAID 6.  I wouldn't think it was having problems.  When my Plasma 5 desktop won't connect, I turn to my MATE laptop and it seems to work fine.  I don't use the same terminal command on the laptop, when I open the smb share, it automatically mounts it to /run/user/1000/gfvs05:50

lotuspsychjeenergizer: #ubuntu has both volunteers and devs/helpers from canonical06:23

lotuspsychje_kmh_: whats your real issue exactly?06:25
_kmh_the default setting for apport is off afaik06:25
lotuspsychje_kmh_: you can still use ubuntu-bug06:25
_kmh_lotuspsychje, after a few application crashes in short period, some prpgram started sending maasive amount of data according to ksysguard06:26
_kmh_lotuspsychje,  so i'm wondering whether that was a possible appropriate behaviour for ubuntu with apport deactivated06:27
lotuspsychje_kmh_: perhaps the #kubuntu channel can help you better on this06:27
_kmh_due to the app crashes or whether it is more like that the installation was hacked06:27

Volundwhew, got it working.11:24
VolundI had to add 'nomodeset' to my grub boot options, and install the proprietary nvidia drivers. then I was able to launch a Xubuntu session instead of the 17.10.1 Wayland session11:24
hateballan unfortunate state of affairs, but the blame is with nvidia11:26
Volundwell, I had no problems with Wayland.11:26
VolundI was LOVING the Wayland desktop that came with 17.10.1. I just couldn't get any of my remote desktop session solutions to talk to it...11:26
VolundSOOOO yeah.11:27
VolundQuite happy to be back on Ubuntu11:29

steenmancan i downgrade 17.10 to 16.04?11:33
Ben64in a few months you can upgrade to 18.0411:34
Volundthe best way to do that is to back up your files and do a clean install from media.11:34

sine0guys when installing ubuntu server it didnt ask for a root password just a regular user.11:55
sine0does this mean I sudow ith this one11:55
hateballsine0: yes11:56
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !pkexec (for older releases: !gksu and !kdesudo). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo11:56
ubottuDo 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/RootSudo11:56

ubottuscorch: Bionic Beaver is the codename for Ubuntu 18.04 - Support only in #ubuntu+113:18
BluesKajHey folks13:19
danrikDoes anyone know if ubunut still supports md5 signed vpn certificates?13:30
scorchdanrik: in networkmanager?13:31
danrikscorch: yes13:32
danrikIm seeing this in logs - cant connect: https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste/e803G-wWGJodWMDNZKa2vg13:33
scorchseems openvpn will support it until march 2018, don't know about ubuntu; but apparently it's extremely unsecure13:33
scorchyou have the ability to upgrade the certificate on the server?13:34
danrikscorch: :( no13:34
danrikscorch: been pushing my company to update for 4 years now. extremely frustrating13:34
scorchI'm not an ubuntu expert, but since openvpn.org said it will support it until march, maybe worth checking if you can connect using the openvpn client instead of through network manager13:34
scorchmaybe ubuntu dropped support in networkmanager but the openvpn package should still be usable; I'm using it manually from time to time13:35
scorch(though not with md5)13:35
danrikscorch: now sure what u mean by openvpn client. nm is openvpn client13:35
jimb_danrik, `apt-cache show openvpn` - `sudo openvpn --config <config file>`13:38
scorchdanrik: I have no idea how networkmanager uses openvpn protocol, but openvpn is in the repo and can be used manually13:38
scorche.g.: sudo openvpn --config /home/scorch/.openvpn/client.ovpn13:39
danrikscorch: , jimb_ tried this approach, getting the same: "Connection reset, restarting [-1]"13:40
jimb_danrik, Ok.13:41
scorchdanrik: https://github.com/fabio-d/openvpn-MD5-hack "The workaround (if you run OpenVPN through NetworkManager)"13:41
scorch"Magic environment variables and .so hook to allow MD5 certificates in OpenVPN and OpenSSL 1.1.0+ in Linux"13:42
scorchdunno, maybe worth a try13:42
linux_may I13:42

linux_yes about danrik13:45

akiklinux_: this channel is for ubuntu support, not for sharing youtube info13:48
linux_I know yet13:48
linux_I just asked dont minds13:48
scorchdanrik: my best guess is that networkmanager does not user the 'openvpn' package from the repo, and has already discontinued md5; so might be worth installing the package and connecting from the command line13:49
danrikscorch: sigh. compiling that package didnt work for me in ubuntu13:54
scorchdanrik: using apt?13:55
scorchor from source?13:55
scorchtry using apt instead?13:56
danrikscorch: is it in apt?13:56
danrikscorch: u're talking about this right? https://github.com/fabio-d/openvpn-MD5-hack13:57
scorchdanrik: no, the one in apt: sudo apt-cache search openvpn14:01
scorchdanrik: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/openvpn.html#openvpn-simple-client-configuration14:02
danrikscorch: right - I've installed openvpn from apt and tried connecting from cli - getting same error14:02
scorchI assume you need "auth md5" in the config file14:03
danrikscorch: ? no. srruy i must ahve missed it14:03
danrikscorch: still the same : "ue Jan 23 09:04:13 2018 Connection reset, restarting [-1]"14:04
scorchdanrik: https://pastebin.com/bU6NzBnQ14:04
scorchthere's my openvpn config (but we didn't use md5, so maybe you have to play around; apparenty the auth config defaults to sha1, so I think you have to add "auth md5" in your case)14:05
scorchthen run as sudo openvpn --config /path/to/config.ovpn14:06

TJ-frechdachs69: yes, if the path is relative, as in d-i preseed/include string additional/config/foobar.cfg16:00
frechdachs69TJ-: and if use 'http://.../preseed2.cfg' ?16:00
TJ-frechdachs69: sorry, 'yes' as in it'll use the same base URL the original came from. 'no' if you want to hardcode and absolute URI16:00
TJ-frechdachs69: actually, I'd test it, it might do that.16:01
frechdachs69TJ-: so you mean the relative files are retrieved from the remote server if the original one came from one?16:01
frechdachs69TJ-: or is this only valid for local files?16:01
TJ-frechdachs69: relative to the original. if you start with http://host/preseed.cfg and have d-i preseed/include string additional/config/foobar.cfg it'll fetch http://host/additional/config/foobar.cfg16:02
frechdachs69TJ-: I'd like to have a look into sources for 'include' but where to find them?16:03

nemohttps://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/java  so - I'm wanting to install oracle java7 for a mostly-oracle server that needs it.  Sun has made this a massive pain, but I now have 7u156 - unfortunately web upd8 team stopped bumping at u80, probably due to Sun locking off access to the package16:10
Romanticdiogenes_, I didn't really _choose_ to make a /boot.  I believe that was a default at time of install.16:10
nemoI'm wondering where I can do the apt-get source for this package, or, alternatively, if it is hard to emulate what the package does, myself16:10
nemoI kinda would like to have the sun files properly tracked and managed16:10
nemoI tried apt-get source oracle-java7-installer and was told there were no sources available16:11
Romanticdiogenes_, is there a way to verify that the last kernel was installed correctly?16:11
nemoand. I can't just copy u156 over to u80 in their cache folder 'cause they sha256 check16:11
diogenes_Romantic, ubuntu doesn't clean the old kernels automatically16:11
diogenes_Romantic, uname -r16:11
nemooooh maybe I can unpack the .deb16:12
n-iCehttps://paste.debian.net/1006639/ this is what I get in dmesg but I can't see the 128GB sdcard in gparted, any idea?16:12
RomanticIndeed, the last kernel downloaded failed to install16:12
naccnemo: to be clear, oracel java is not supported here16:12
naccnemo: you ca tallk to the ppa ower, if you want, but if oracle doesn't want to support linux, there's not much we can do16:13
RomanticI am afraid of rebooting and having to deal kernel modules issues again. aargh!16:13
diogenes_Romantic, because lack of space16:13
frechdachs69TJ-: I can confirm that it works :-)16:13
youtahEriC^^, giving me the same errors16:13
naccRomantic: diogenes_: without readign scrolllback; if /boot is full, you can probably just manually delete some initrd or kernel, then let apt do its thing16:14
nemonacc: yeah. I know. that's why I was focusing on apt-source - so far dpkg -R looks extremely promising16:14

OnkelTemHi folks16:17
OnkelTemI'm trying to create a list of badblocks of my hdd16:17
Romanticoh boy, I ran a purge and got a ton of errors.16:17
OnkelTemAnd I ran badblocks w/o specifying the size of the block16:17
OnkelTemSo it took a default of 102416:17
OnkelTemNow, if I need to convert them into real blocks (tune2fs says 4096) what do I do?16:18
hotbakedpotato[mhas anyone use the gnome encfs? I had trouble transferring files the /ecrypted folder it was saying permission denied? I have gotten ecryptfs-setup-private  to work good but I was looking for a little more flexibility with an encrypted folder like naming the folder any name i want instead of /private and /.private16:18
OnkelTemI wrote a simple PHP script which converts the list by MOD 416:18
OnkelTemecho (($number - ($number % 4)) / 4) . "\n";16:18
OnkelTem^^^^ Does it look fine for you?16:19
akikRomantic: did you remove a previous initrd to free up space in /boot ?16:19
davesevhi, i am working on VPS ubuntu 17 and im trying to use xnee or xmacro to record but i get the error Xlib extension RECORD is missing on display 116:19
RomanticI ran sudo apt autoremove --purge16:19
naccnemo: to be clear, it is supported, but really not generally considered on topic. For the most general case, you don't ever need to do that in a supported release. So the only reason you need to do that is becuase you are doing sometingn unsupported :)16:21
nemonacc: yeah, but that's entirely Oracle's fault unfortunately... don't have much choice tho. gotta stay on 7 for this environment16:21
nemonacc: so. basically the "unsupported" thing I'm doing is "maintaining the 7 packaging myself" which so far doesn't seem to be too painful16:22
naccnemo: which in turn ... well, not ubuntu's fault, but EOTOPIC :)16:22
nemonacc: you wouldn't happen to know what DEBIAN/md5sums does do you?16:22

naccRomantic: looking16:32
naccRomantic: the one error is because you no longer have headers installed for that package, so dkms is unable to remove its built drivers16:33
naccRomantic: i only see the one error; although it does look like you might have an unnecessary kernel still16:34
Romanticcorrect, I have -96, -109 (current) -112, not running16:35
Romanticshould I purge again?16:35
naccRomantic: just see if autoremove wants to remove -9616:36
naccRomantic: it *may* not, because it hasn't succesfully booted 112 yet (I guess)16:36
Romanticnope: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 19 not upgraded.16:37
naccRomantic: yeah, so finish the upgrade first, I guess, then reboot16:37
naccRomantic: (would be my first suggestion); to the -112 kernel16:37
RomanticIs there a way I can confirm that the kernel modules are installed correctly?16:38
RomanticSpecifically, last time I had a reboot issue, the nvidia module was complete whacked.16:38
zarzar1anyone know about mkimage package on ubuntu 16lts?16:38
die7TJ-: on boot prompt interface=enp3s0 worked for me16:40
rektidenacc:  i don't see anything at all in these release notes or on the releases page that in any way specifies that repositories are going to be removed & dropped as soon as the EOL happens. and it's not at all my expectation. in node.js for example i can easily go download Node.js v0.1.0.16:40
rektidethis was a huge shock and very frustrating. i don't care that you think i should upgrade up from zesty- this machine works and i just want to do one little thing, and having the entire distro vanish last week is not how i as a user want to be treated and i feel like i can have some small sympathy for that16:41

rektideinstalling a new kernel for this upgrade is forcing me to delete some of my old kernels, which is terrifying. if this thing doesn't boot that would be very bad.16:43
rektideoh i guess it's linux-tools packages that have to be removed. ok that's less scary16:43

rektideswein: this dual boot macbook may not like me messing with the uefi partition16:44
naccrektide: which told you how to add repositories so that you can install packages (not supported) and how to upgrade properly.16:44
rektidenacc: i also didn't read the entire manual before i installed it. this sass you keep finding for a very sensible user desire is silly mate.16:45
zarzar1oerheks: yes, supposedly mkimage -A -h should list available architectures, doesn't work on my ubuntu 16lts16:45
naccrektide: honestly, your attitude is terrible. The *first* think I did was give you the exact answer you wanted.16:45
rektidenacc: i'm reading hte bloody EOLUpgrade page that you told me to read! and now you're making fun of me for not having read some other page?16:45

naccrektide: also, I don't control the archive, nor do you. So when something goes EOL, you have no *idea* when it disappears.16:46
rektidenacc: again i had no idea that means PACKAGES WOULD ALL BE DELETED16:46
naccrektide: they were not, they were moved. again, as the EOL upgrade page indicates.16:46

jordilahi #ubuntu , a friend of mine broguth me a Ubuntu 16.04 - Unity with the given problem : it (apparently) boots fine... but when to be prompted for user / passwd ... blue screen, with just mouse pointer is shown. No dialog box (!). The weirdest thing is that if i push 'space bar' e.g. , i get to see for some miliseconds the dialog box... which is apparently there, but not shown. Any hints ?16:48
rektidenacc: what am i not seeing on this EOLUpgrade page that could tell me where this zesty archives have moved?16:48
zarzar1oerheks: isn't it part of u-boot-tools now?16:48
rektidei happened to recall dealing with some old Lucid systems, and having to use http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ . but it's just blind luck i remembered that, and experience. i don't see anything in the EOLUpgrade or release notes or other that would let me know the repositories just moved, that in spite of having a 404 the repos have not been deleted outright- only moved16:50

zarzar1oerheks: any idea how to get the list of archs mkimage works for?16:51
naccrektide: we aren't going to make it *easy* to run eol releases. they aren't supported in the first place.16:51
naccrektide: e.g., you're not geting spectre/meltdown fixes at all.16:51
zarzar1oerheks: i am trying to create scripts for u-boot for an armhf architecture (i.mx6)16:52
rektidethankfully i don't let other people run code on my box, so i have no spectre/meltdown issues to be warry of16:52
naccrektide: uh, what?16:52
naccrektide: that's not the attack vector, unless you mean you don't use a browser and javascript16:53
rektidethe browsers mitigated these attacks16:53
rektidethey decreased timing resolution, disabled sharedarraybuffers.16:53
naccthe *known* attacks.16:53
rektidei am highly unconcerned. people don't run code on my system. specrtre/meltdown do not affect me.16:53
naccand firefox, e.g., in zesty may or may not have gotten it16:53

TPTnacc: OK, I'll try18:05
oerheksthere is #kivy here on #freenode too18:05
naccTPT: run *what*?18:06
naccTPT: kivy is a python library; you don't run pythonn libraries, you import them into your code18:06
TPTnacc: Oh, there must be some application too, isn't it?18:07
naccTPT: ... no18:08
naccTPT: it's a library18:08
naccTPT: there are examples in a separate package, i think18:08
TPTnacc : oh my god, I'm so sorry. I didn't know that. i thought of just installing it and then watch the tutorials18:09
naccTPT: i might be wrong, but the python3-kivy package does not contain any binaries18:10
wafflejockTPT, libraries are chunks of code that are used by application developers to build applications there are likely applications that use this library but the library itself isn't a full application (just a set of functions for developers to use)18:11
wafflejocklooks like nacc is right though there's no UI to the framework or corresponding editor you just use whatever editor you like and import it like a regular python library https://kivy.org/docs/guide/basic.html18:12
TPTwafflejock : thank you, mate. I'm new to linux and python. I understand there are some modules but there has to be a kivy application too for designing, isn't it?18:13
wafflejockTPT there could be I'm new to python myself but in most cases you just import and start using objects/functions defined in the lib didn't see anything on the table of contents though https://kivy.org/docs/18:14
naccTPT: no, I don't think that's what kivy is (it's not an apolication, i'ts a framework/library)18:15
naccTPT: at this point, it sounds like you need to learn about kivy, so i'd use #kivy, as oerheks said, and read their docs; not really an ubuntu support topic18:15
TPTnacc: wafflejock: thank you, you guys.18:16
DexterFwhat's the most minimalistic desktop environment that has a network-manager applet? lighter than xfce18:17
TPTnacc: I would be better if i just watch a tut first and ask doubts if there are any. Thanks!18:17
TJ-DexterF: the console. See nmtui and nmcli18:17
DexterFTJ-, did not do what I needed. sees the 4G modem but won't connect it. whatever is different when doing it in xfce via the applet does the trick.18:18
TJ-DexterF: the system will also need packages modemmanager and ofono18:19
TJ-DexterF: I've configured 4G modem this way18:19
DexterFTJ-, would a standard install of xubuntu 16.04 have these?18:19
DexterFTJ-, it works on this laptop with 16.04 xub and ofono is not installed.18:21
DexterFmodemmanager is, though. ok, I know what I'll try18:21
TJ-DexterF: it /should/ do; try "mmcli --help-manager" to see the console-based options for config18:21
DexterFnmcli, got it18:22
TJ-DexterF: there's docs on how to configure a GSM connection using nmcli here (note they're using snaps so whereever you see "modem.manager.mmcli" just use "mmcli"  ) https://docs.ubuntu.com/core/en/stacks/network/network-manager/docs/configure-cellular-connections18:27

mbntHi, my root folder is full. I am not sure why. I have 21 gigs, which should be plenty. How do I clean it out...maybe there are some junk files in there or something18:37

jimb_mbnt, I would suggest starting by clearing out your apt-get cache via `sudo apt-get clean`18:40

naccDocfxit: that seems way easier than all of this stuff19:41
naccDocfxit: to be clear -P is not about debug19:43
jimb_-P is password, right?19:44
naccjimb_: it tells smbclient to use the machine account locally to query the remote19:44
naccjimb_: so not exactly password19:44
Docfxitnacc,  I originally tried to back it up to a folder on the hard drive.  I was directed to use rsync.  Which I didn't know at the time required an ssh server on the other end.  Then you suggested I use the copy to a windows share.  If I knew how to mount and copy it to a thumb drive I could have easily.19:45
naccjimb_: but that is, i think, why it tried to lookup the samba secrets (which would be th elocal machine auth)19:45

naccDocfxit: you were trying to backup something locally to somehwere else locally?19:46
naccDocfxit: that was definitely not what your AU question said19:46
naccDocfxit: tbh, if you are having this much trouble ... get a big enough thumb drive, plug it in, format it (using disks, probably), drag and drop stuff with nautilus you want, and then wait until its done19:47
Docfxitnacc,   I know.  I started this question on the fourm.  It evolved before I came here.19:47
Docfxitnacc,  What is nautilus?19:48
naccDocfxit: the GUI file browser in gnome19:48

TJ-sirru5h: if nothing there try "sudo iptables-save | grep 8123"20:25
sirru5hgrep google /etc/hosts ( nothing )20:26
bunnyman123Hey everyone20:27
TJ-sirru5h: I think you've had a SOCKS 5 proxy configured at some point20:27
sirru5h@TJ-, nothing for the sudo iptables-save | grep 812320:27
ioriasirru5h, container ?20:28
jerichowasahoaxsirru5h: env | grep -i proxy20:28
sirru5hNope not using docker20:28

amazoniantoadI recently ran an upgrade and now my computer takes an inordinate amount of time to boot. 16.0420:29
amazoniantoadAnyone have a fix for this?20:29
sirru5hShould I unset these environmental variables here20:29
jerichowasahoaxsirru5h: yep20:29
DexterFTJ-, nmtui shows me for activation DSL, Ethernet, Infiniband and others but nothing like "broadband". mmcli tells me I have ports: 'ttyUSB0 (at), ttyUSB1 (at), wwan0 (net)'20:29
TJ-amazoniantoad: start with "systemd-analyze critical-chain"20:29
amazoniantoadI saw that editting the uuid of the swap space worked for some people but I didn't see any set in fstab20:29
DexterFwhere do I go from here?20:29
amazoniantoadTJ-, how do I start with that?20:29
sirru5hpimp @jerichowasahoax I'll hit it right now20:29
amazoniantoadSorry...need coffee20:29
jerichowasahoaxsirru5h: and make sure they aren't being set in ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile while you're at it20:29
TJ-amazoniantoad: sorry, as in 'start your diagnosis with..."20:29
amazoniantoadRight. I got it haha20:30
amazoniantoadStill tired20:30
TJ-DexterF: did you read the linked instructions I gave you for using "nmcli" to create/activate the connection ?20:30
=== SimonNL_Afk is now known as SimonNL
sirru5hI just unset them but I will double check both of those20:31
amazoniantoadTJ-, https://paste.ubuntu.com/26446295/20:31
DexterFTJ-, saw that just now20:31
leftyfbsirru5h: I thought you said you didn't have a proxy? That is clearly configs for a proxy of some sort20:31
sirru5hleftyfb, never set one20:32
TJ-amazoniantoad: how long does the boot take?20:32
ioriasirru5h, it does not set by itself20:32
TJ-amazoniantoad: and when you say boot, do you actual mean "until the desktop is ready after I log-in to the GUI" ?20:32
sirru5hI think I may have installed tor though a while back like when I was first setting up the machine20:33
ioriasirru5h, is that your machine ?20:33
amazoniantoadTJ-, well actually it takes like 15+ seconds but that's after it fails to boot a couple of times. By boot I mean to get to the login screen. So including the couple initial boot failures (just a black screen) it brings it to almost a minute20:33
amazoniantoadIt used to be pretty instantaneous20:33
sirru5hnot sure if it is "residual"20:33
sirru5hioria, yup my machine20:34
TJ-amazoniantoad: your critical-chain shows the NetworkManager-wait-online.service takes 12 seconds so that would explain it. It's taking some time to bring up the network connection which I assume is WiFi ?20:34
TJ-amazoniantoad: for the failed boots, there may be clues in /var/log/kern.log20:35
amazoniantoadTJ-, let me check that20:35
sirru5hjerichowasahoax, for the no_proxy=localhost,,::1,,,
sirru5hShould I leave those as well and do I need to restart the network manager?20:35
amazoniantoadTJ-, https://paste.ubuntu.com/26446320/20:36
TJ-amazoniantoad: and to further analyse the network-online delay you'd need to look at all the messages NetworkManager writes to /var/log/syslog (compare the timestamps to figure out where the delay is)20:36
jerichowasahoaxthose variables just say "don't use a proxy for those addresses"20:36
amazoniantoadTJ-, okay20:36
sirru5hYup I left them just double checking20:36
jerichowasahoaxsirru5h: removing them would be "cleaner" but leaving them should have no effect until you try to use another proxy somewhere20:36
TJ-amazoniantoad: that pastebin isn't very useful since it's effectively a screenshot. Just do "pastebinit /var/log/kern.log"20:37
sirru5hWell I'll take them off just because generally I have just a direct connection20:37
amazoniantoadTJ-, http://paste.ubuntu.com/26446335/20:38

sirru5hI'm gonna reboot I appreciate the help20:39
on3pkOn my system, Ubuntu doesn't seem to ever run the CPU fans.  It makes it quiet but very hot.  How can I find out which fans are installed and why they don't run?20:40
TJ-amazoniantoad: drat! Looks like the logs were just rotated out! try this: "pastebinit <( tail -n 2000 /var/log/syslog.1 )"20:40
TJ-on3pk: sounds like an ACPI issue, this may help: http://iam.tj/prototype/enhancements/Windows-acpi_osi.html20:40
amazoniantoadTJ-, http://paste.ubuntu.com/26446351/20:41
ioriaon3pk, not a specialist, but your pc shuts down if the cpu fan not running20:41
on3pkioria, it has been throttling the CPU20:44
TJ-amazoniantoad: OK, for network... the Wifi association starts at  "15:23:57 Nostromo wpa_supplicant[1363]: wlp1s0: SME: Trying to authenticate with 80:e0:1d:43:4e:9f (SSID='MASON-SECURE' freq=5805 MHz)" and completes at " 15:24:05 Nostromo dnsmasq[2168]: using nameserver wlp1s0)" so that's 8 seconds20:44
TJ-amazoniantoad: actually, that's not the correct association, that's a later one. The log looks a bit messed up near the start too20:45
amazoniantoadTJ-, hm20:46
GalaxorHi.  What kernel options can I use at boot to tell it NOT to mount root?  I just want the initramfs command prompt.20:46
TJ-amazoniantoad: for the boot delay, there's an unexplained delay between 9.641603 and 13.989464]20:46
GalaxorI can't find anything about it on the internet because I get too many pages of people saying "Ono, root won't mount , I'm at the initramfs prompt, help!"  I'm trying to get INTO that situation, not OUT of it.20:47
TJ-Galaxor: break=mountroot20:47
GalaxorTJ-: Thanks!20:47
sveinseAnyone here knows what source the /boot/grub/unicode.pf2 font is generated from? I'm on a HiDPI and I'd like to generate much larger fonts.20:47
TJ-Galaxor: you can find other places to break with "grep maybe_break /usr/share/initramfs-tools/init"20:47
TJ-Galaxor: 'init' is the init script run in the initrd.img20:48
on3pkHm.  If I gotta pretend to be a different OS.  Maybe it's just time to get a new PC.  This one is ~10 years old now20:48
GalaxorTJ-: Thanks!20:48
amazoniantoadTJ-, so what do you suggest I do?20:49
GalaxorI'm renting a server, and they flash it with ubuntu.  I want full-disk encryption, but I have no ability to mount to a cd or anything.  I do have console access, though.20:49
GalaxorSo my plan is to put all the repartitioning tools I need into the initramfs and then boot there and.20:49
Galaxorand set up everything I need and reboot and hopefully it'll work??20:50
TJ-amazoniantoad: for the network, it looks like the connection starts with "15:17:59 Nostromo NetworkManager[1159]: <info>  [1516738679.2439] policy: auto-activating connection 'MASON'" and ends at "15:18:07 Nostromo NetworkManager[1159]: <info>  [1516738687.4543] device (wlp1s0): Activation: successful, device activated." which is 8 seconds (again!)20:50
GalaxorI'm rehearsing with a VM I have locally.20:50
sirru5hLooks like it sets the env variable everytime20:50
on3pkI'm actually 90% sure I could switch to a SBC like the OrangePi and I wouldn't notice a difference between that and this PC.  Ick.20:51
jimb_on3pk, ouch.20:52
TJ-Galaxor: yes, it'll work. Create your hook-script in /etc/initramfs-tools/hook/<myscript> (chmod +x) start with "#!/bin/sh" and then call the hook-function "copy_exec path/to/executable" -- that's defined in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook-functions and it will ensure all required libraries (.so files) are copied into the initrd too"20:54
=== andreslara501_ is now known as andreslara501
on3pkjimb_, it is what it is.  But I Ubuntu definitely makes this easier to work with than Windows20:54
TJ-Galaxor: e.g. "copy_exec /sbin/cryptsetup" will copy that binary and all it's required libraries in for you20:55
GalaxorTJ-: Doesn't debootstrap have stuff in /usr/share or something too?20:56
TJ-Galaxor: you're planning on using debootstrap from the initrd?20:56
TJ-Galaxor: you might find this handy, it's an in-place LUKS conversion tool https://github.com/johndoe31415/luksipc20:57
TJ-Galaxor: you could then just convert an unencrypted rootfs in-place from initrd20:58
GalaxorTJ-: Ohh, that sounds like a good plan yes!20:58
GalaxorTJ-: I guess another option would be to create the encrypted filesystem and then wget debootstrap onto it and run from there...20:59
TJ-Galaxor: or, you could initially not allocate all space to the unencrypted Ubuntu rootfs - give it say 40%, then you can create another encrypted FS and copy into it. In that approach I'd use LVM so you can easily add the space from the unencrypted rootfs to the encrypted rootfs once you've converted20:59
GalaxorTJ-: Hm.  The hosting provider will give me a fully-allocated unencrypted partition.  But I could shrink it with resize2fs, and then make the second partition, copy things over there, and then make that the root...21:02
=== Nan is now known as Guest66909
TJ-Galaxor: Can't you choose how to use the space? I'm used to being able to do that :)21:02
TJ-Galaxor: but yes, if you can work from the initrd you can use resize2fs to shrink it before it is mounted21:03
=== jottr_ is now known as jottr
GalaxorTJ-: Hm.  I don't see any fancy allocation options like that in their purchasing/provisioning UI.  It looks like I'm gonna hafta do this dance.21:04
TJ-Galaxor: would installing dropbear (the ssh server) into the initrd and bringing up the network help, or do you already have sufficent access at the initrd stage?21:04
xapakHello. I have an inquiry, not Ubuntu specific (I hope), but some of you probably can help me out with: I have this AWS Ubuntu AMI, where the `ubuntu` user seems to start its session-based dbus daemon, but new users do not. "mynewuser" gives me a "Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory" whenever I try something with systemctl --user, whereas with `ubuntu` I get no issues at all.21:05
AngelKdehello everyone I wanted to ask if it is normal that on ubuntu 16.04 you have to upgrade the kernel a la ves 4.13?21:05
TJ-AngelKde: 4.13 is the HardWare Enablement kernel21:05
GalaxorTJ-: Yes, dropbear would help.  I was planning on following these instructions:  https://stinkyparkia.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/remote-unlocking-luks-encrypted-lvm-using-dropbear-ssh-in-ubuntu-server-14-04-1-with-static-ipst/21:05
Bashing-om!hwe | AngelKde21:06
ubottuAngelKde: The Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack21:06
TJ-Galaxor: looks like you're ahead of me :)21:06
sirru5hWhere would the environmental variables that are set each time on bootup be kept?21:07
TJ-Galaxor: which hypervisor is in use, is it KVM booting your choice of kernel?21:07
TJ-sirru5h: /etc/environment and/or /etc/profile /etc/bash.bashrc21:07
kostkonAngelKde, in other words, it is normal21:08
sirru5hAwesome thank you21:08
AngelKdekostkon, sorry so just follow the guide in the link or can I give sudo apt-get dist-upgrade directly?21:08
TJ-Galaxor: does the host not provide an emergency recovery boot option that boots something like finnix ?21:09
kostkonAngelKde, if you are asked already to upgrade to that kernel then just dist-upgrade21:09
TJ-Galaxor: if so, you could use that to redo the partitioning etc.21:09
AngelKdethanks konimex21:10
AngelKdesorry thanks kostkon21:10
kostkonAngelKde, np21:10
sirru5hnothing there regarding proxy21:12
GalaxorTJ-: I do get to use my own kernel.  I don't know what they're using.  Could be anything - kvm, virtualbox, xen, or even vmware.  Access to the console is the only emergency boot option I've got.21:13
sveinseI have a Lenovo P51 with 17.10 and I'm having occational problems rebooting and shutting down. ACPI stuff? Is there anything I can do?21:15
TJ-sveinse: yes, I'd agree, ACPI21:16
TJ-sveinse: how about suspend/resume and all devices still working?21:16
sveinseTJ-: Yes, the little I've tested it seems to be working ok21:17
TJ-sveinse: you might want to try this: http://iam.tj/prototype/enhancements/Windows-acpi_osi.html21:17
sveinseTJ-: Do you know what win10 is identified as?21:19
sveinseok, I'll try it. brb21:19
TJ-sveinse: No, it's the mobo/firmware that is responsible, not the OS.21:19
akiksveinse: there's also the reboot= kernel parameter21:20
sirru5hOkay this is odd but in the network setup I had a proxy listed (very odd)21:22
DocfxitI'm getting an error saying \mnt\win does not exist.  /mnt/win does exist.  with this cmd: sudo mount -t cifs -o gary \\\\\\Backup\\AsteriskBackup //mnt//win21:26
DocfxitSorry this cmd: sudo mount -t cifs -o gary \\\\\\Backup\\AsteriskBackup \\mnt\\win21:27
naccDocfxit: uh21:27
naccDocfxit: well, one, you're using windows path separators to a unix path21:27
naccDocfxit: seriously, you could have fixed this by now21:27
Docfxitnacc, If this was a one off copy I would drive down there.  It isn't.  I would like to have this capability in place.21:29
sveinseakik: just reboot= ?21:29
sirru5hWorked .. it was an odd setting in the settings>network>network proxy .. it wasn't trying to use the old tor config it was trying to go through 812321:29
akiksveinse: no, it's described in the doc21:29
naccDocfxit: then you should learn about paths inn general, and read the mount manpages (including mount.cifs, is eriously doubt 'gary' is an option for it.)21:30
Docfxitnacc, I'm just trying to duplicate what I found on the internet for examples.21:31
sirru5hI want to thank leftyfb, TJ- , jerichowasahoax , ioria , and everyone else who helped me Thank you everyone21:31
akiksveinse: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/x86/x86_64/boot-options.txt search for reboot=21:31
naccDocfxit: that's not generally a good idea for things you actually care about :)21:31
naccDocfxit: unless you have a fully isolated test environment that does not affect your remote computer21:32
Docfxitnacc, If I change \\mnt\\win to //mnt//win I get a bunch more errors.21:32
naccDocfxit: well, // is still wrong, but whatever.21:32
sveinseakik: yeah, I googled the same. Not sure what to chose thou21:32
naccDocfxit: you aren't reading docs to understand why you are passing what you are, so you're going to end up making a mistake eventually, it feels like21:32
naccDocfxit: what errors do you get?21:32
DexterFdo nmcli/mmcli commands stay permanent?21:33
akiksveinse: did you activate the acpi_osi parameter already? it might help too21:33
sveinsee.g. what is the difference on warm, cold, hard and soft reboot on x86? I'm not very familiar with this arch on a low level21:34
akiksveinse: just test them21:34
Docfxitnacc, The errors: https://pastebin.com/XuCiW0vH21:36
sveinseon the acpi_osi setting, is it always best to chose the last item which the script does? My system returns Windows 2001 through Windows 2015 and then Microsoft Windows NT which gets picked by the script21:37
naccDocfxit: read `man mount.cifs`, as i said, 'gary' is totally incorrect21:37
naccDocfxit: and i have no idea where you thought it would be right21:37
DexterFTJ-, got it working. whopee. no clue though if the cli commands stay or have to be reentered on every reboot?21:38
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: your command is bogus and you should forget you ever learned it21:38
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: now, what are you *actually* trying to do21:38
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, I am trying to copy files from Ubuntu to a windows share.21:39
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: okay. can we have more details about the windows share?21:40
naccDocfxit: you want something like (read docs to knnow for usre) `mount -t cifs -o username=gary,password=... // /mnt/win`21:41
naccjerichowasahoax may know more, i never use windows or samba21:41
Docfxitnacc,  Thank you.21:41
jerichowasahoaxi haven't used cifs in a long time either21:42
jerichowasahoaxbecause oddly enough, the weak link every time i tried to use cifs was always the windows boxes21:42
jerichowasahoaxand my solution more often than not ended up being "give up and use sftp"21:42
sveinsenah, the acpi_osi didn't work. not with the first attemt at least21:42
TJ-DexterF: if you've used "nmcli con add"  then you've a permanent connection, you can check with "nmcli con" to get a list21:45
sveinseTJ-: Nice work with the ACPI DSDT reverse engineering :P21:45
DexterFTJ-, 4 gsm lines, first green, device is ttyUSB0 ehich is my modem21:46
TJ-DexterF: best thing is to reboot and check :D21:46
akiksveinse: yes for 2015, no for nt :)21:47
sveinsedidn't help anything unfortunately21:48
sveinseand I don't know if I'm missing any HW. I'm not using everything on it. Like the fingerprint reader or the pantone color calibrator21:48
ayeeI have a few hundred machines. I have a package list for all of those machines. Is there a way I can say download some file from USN or something, basically a hashmap telling me this package version has an active CVE or doesn't have an active CVE21:48
ayeeI don't want a complicated binary, or api or something, I just want a simple hashmap, to lookup packages in ubuntu repos21:49
TJ-sveinse: best too look at the kernel logs for clues, /var/log/kern.log will capture multiple boots21:49
ayeeLike can I just download this database: https://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/ ?21:49
TJ-ayee: you mean packages that have a CVE patch in them which you've not yet applied to your fleet ?21:50
ayeeTJ-: yes21:50
ayeelike old packages with a security update21:50
TJ-ayee: I don't know of one, but I suggest you join #ubuntu-hardened and ask the security devs there21:51
sveinseTJ-: Isn't my kernel line working? ACPI: [Firmware Bug]: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored21:52
TJ-sveinse: look further on :)21:53
TJ-sveinse: check "cat /proc/cmdline" to ensure the entry is there, too21:53
sveinseit is21:53
TJ-sveinse: you should see something like "ACPI: Added _OSI(Windows 2015)" in the kernel log21:54
nomicis it possible to get a command like grep to always run with a switch like grep -s21:54
nomicneed it to run with -s all the time21:55
nomicsome alias21:55
TJ-nomic: you can create a shell alias21:55
nomicnot an alias21:55
nomicbut it is alias grep=?21:55
sveinseTJ-: I don't. Only the _OSI(Linux) I pasted above21:55
walnut_burlnomic alias grep='grep -s'21:56
sveinseIs the kern.log sensitive? Can/should I paste it?21:56
nomicok that worked21:56
nomic        $("#packets1").css("background-position",""+ packets1.position +"px 0px");21:56
TJ-sveinse: it's fine to paste, we need to see it frequently21:56
nomicalias grep="grep -s"    neeto21:57
nomicthat worked21:57
nomicfantastic .21:57
walnut_burlthat will only last in that instance of the terminal21:57
walnut_burlif you want it forever21:57
walnut_burlput that line in your ~/.bashrc21:58
sveinseTJ-: https://bpaste.net/show/d99d6cc2470d21:58
nomicok i put it in bashrc21:58

TJ-sveinse: sorry, line 33221:59
sveinseTJ-: wow, din't see that22:00
TJ-sveinse: I notce around line 1025 a bunch of Device Specific Method erros due to firmware bugs, which might not be helping22:01
TJ-sveinse: it's worth testing with the latest mainline kernel from the kernel-team PPA, you could try v4.15-rc922:01
TJ-!mainline | sveinse22:02
ubottusveinse: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds22:02
TJ-sveinse: I have a shell script which automates fetching the mainline kernels, verifying the checksums, and installing @ http://iam.tj/projects/ubuntu/wget_kernel_mainline.sh22:03
sveinseTJ-: Is this, safe, on a production laptop? Well, I do know nothing is safe, per se, but I hope you understand what I mean22:04
sveinseIt's my daily work laptop22:04
TJ-sveinse: well it's for testing it installs /alongside/ all existing kernels, it doesn't replace them; once tested you can choose to continue booting with it or remove it22:04
TJ-sveinse: I generally use the latest mainline kernels on some systems I rely on22:05
shazbotmcnastyHello - I was wondering if anyone knew how to set up an SMB share on Ubuntu 16.04 that is not password protected on the LAN22:08
shazbotmcnastyI was to be able to \\hostname\sharename from any windows machine in the network and get to the files22:08
DexterFTJ-, whopee. survives reboot22:08
TJ-DexterF: :) Yay, nice one22:10
DexterFTJ-, thanks a bunch. I tried this the classic way, drove me sheer nuts22:10

lateniteHi folks, I updated to 17.10 and now when I get a DHCP lease my /etc/resolv.conf remains empty. What am I missing here?22:11
TJ-latenite: there might be clues in /var/log/syslog from NetworkManager22:12
DexterFTJ-, one thing I haven't tested: NM is per user, right? because headless no user gets logged in...22:12
TJ-DexterF: it can be both, system or user. Check if your GSM connection file is in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/22:13
azizLIGHTif i do dd if=/dev/sdb of=/media/ubuntu/image-of-sdb.img , and if /dev/sdb is like 50% empty, total size 100gb, will the image file be 50 gb or 100gb22:14
DexterFTJ-, it is, belongs to root with 600 rights22:14
TJ-DexterF: or you can do "nmcli con show <name>" but I'm not sure which key indicates system vs user22:15
TJ-azizLIGHT: 110GB22:15
TJ-azizLIGHT: hahaha, 100GB sorry22:16
azizLIGHThow do i make dd image without free space taking up so much space22:16
=== john is now known as banisterfiend
memphistoazizLIGHT: you can't22:16
memphistodd does block copying22:16
azizLIGHTcan i compress it to make it smaller at least22:17
TJ-azizLIGHT: you'd have to shrink the file-system in it and limit the dd to the number of blocks the FS required22:17
akikazizLIGHT: you could compress it22:17
memphistoyou don't know how your data is spread across the device so you can't limit it that way22:17
TJ-azizLIGHT: on the 'dd' command-line you can use "conv=sparse" which will seek over all NULL blocks in the output22:17
memphistobut you can compress it22:17
azizLIGHTTJ-: yes so if sdb is 100gb but sdb1 is only 50gb and the remaining space is free space not allocated to any partition, will the sdb img still be 100gb?22:17
shazbotmcnastyThanks TJ- , reading it now22:18
TJ-azizLIGHT: yes, but in that case you could just "dd if=/dev/sdb1 ..."22:18
shazbotmcnastyoh that's what I just was reading22:18
shazbotmcnastyno it didn't help22:18
shazbotmcnastyit still asks for the password22:18
TJ-shazbotmcnasty: :D darn22:18
azizLIGHTTJ-: well i might need the mbr and such22:18
akikazizLIGHT: dd if=... | gzip > file.gz22:18
Ben64dd bs=1M count=10 if=/dev/sdb of=sdb22:19
azizLIGHTakik: ah i see. so should i write zeros in the empty space so its easier to compress?22:19
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, The mount worked great.  Thank you.22:19
Ben64azizLIGHT: that would work but theres still no point22:19
TJ-azizLIGHT: save the mbr separately, or tar them together, e.g. "dd if=/dev/sdb count=1 of=path/to/mbr.bin"22:19
shazbotmcnastyI wonder if it makes a different that my windows PC is on a domain22:19
sveinseTJ- where do I find the keys for this?22:20
azizLIGHTBen64: this command "dd bs=1M count=10 if=/dev/sdb of=sdb" takes image of the mbr?22:20
TJ-sveinse: which keys? the kernel PPA signing certificate?22:21
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, I tried to copy the files.  With some of the files I'm getting an error saying Permission denied.  Most of the files copied just fine.  cp -R /etc/asterisk /mnt/win/AsteriskBackup22:21

memphisto[23:19] <shazbotmcnasty> I wonder if it makes a different that my windows PC is on a domain22:21
azizLIGHToh i see22:21
akikazizLIGHT: to save the original data, just use that pipeline. it'll get compressed22:22
sveinseTJ-: Your script wants to run gpg verification on it, and then it sais sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com <KEYID>22:22
sveinseIs keyid what is printed a few lines above?22:22
akikazizLIGHT: not using of= with dd makes it output to stdout and through that pipe to gzip22:22
TJ-sveinse: right, and if you look it tells you the command to run - yes, that's the command ... look up about 4 lines, on the end of a line is the hex key ID it needs22:22
sveinseTJ-: perfect, thanks22:23
azizLIGHTakik: well im afraid that because the disk has been in use for so long, that hte img will be 100gb not 50gb (sdb1 is 50gb, whole disk is 100gb), even with compression22:23
azizLIGHTbecause its block level22:23
azizLIGHTam i making sense?22:23
shazbotmcnastyHmm. Any other ideas for the samba share with no password? Accessing machines will be Windows, and are on a domain.22:23
TJ-azizLIGHT: does /dev/sdb only have a single partition sdb1 of 50GB now?22:23
memphistodon't think youll get much less size with compression22:24
azizLIGHTTJ-: yes22:24
memphistothen dd the sdb1 only22:24
TJ-azizLIGHT: why not create a 2nd partition using all the free space then do "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb2 bs=50M" to zero it all then you can do sparse block compression22:24
azizLIGHTTJ-: that was my original thought22:24
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest44683
Ben64seems like a waste of time though22:25
memphistosave mbr22:25

azizLIGHTseems good. i will do that22:25
sveinseDarn, I have the same issue now I had earlier this day: dkms hangs forever. It hangs on "plymouth --ping"22:26
sveinseI can kill it, and that will advance the dkms build until plymouth --ping is called again. Kill it and repeat and eventually the dkms installation is complete22:27
sveinseShouldn't be like this, right?22:27
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: that's probably a permissions error on the system hosting the share and you'd have to go there to fix it22:27
Ben64sveinse: right22:27
TJ-sveinse: we've seen a few reports of that recently22:28
sveinseIs it a known 17.10 issue? Because my installation is only a few days old22:28

sveinselogged as affecting me22:29
shazbotmcnastyI just tested to see if it made a difference if the accessing computer is on the domain and it doesn't seem to - machine both on and off of the domain are still being prompted for a password for my smb share.22:29
shazbotmcnastyAny ideas for the samba share with no password? Accessing machines will be Windows, and are on a domain. The samba machine is not on the domain.22:30
shazbotmcnastyThat's my smb.conf22:30
TJ-shazbotmcnasty: any clues in /var/log/syslog or any samba log? enabling verbose samba logging might help22:31
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, Most of the files did copy.  If none of the files copied I could understand it could be on the windows machine.22:31
memphistoshazbotmcnasty: https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/samba-server-ubuntu-16-04/22:31
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: well what are some examples of files that didn't copy, if you don't mind me asking?22:32
TJ-Docfxit: presumably you need to run the command as 'root' using "sudo ..."22:33
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, Happy to share.  It looks like they really did copy over.  I just got the errors with a few of the files.  I just tried it again with sudo and received no errors.22:36
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: ...which files were they again22:36
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, It could be those files that I got Permission denied on could be in use right now.22:37
sveinseTJ-: After a few reboots, it seems the new kernel works much better. Thanks!22:37
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: linux doesn't lock files for being in use22:37
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: i'm starting to get concerned that maybe you're backing up files you really don't need to be backing up22:37
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, ztscan.conf   h323.conf  etc.22:37
sveinseTJ-: To update to a newer kernel I just rerun the wget script I got, right?22:38
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: i don't know what those are but they're config files according to their names so that's fine22:38
DexterFiptables -A POSTROUTING -o usb0 -j MASQUERADE and with ppp0, too, both say no chain/target by that name. ifconfig tells me there is wwan0 (4G modem) and ppp0 which has a 10.241. IP address (weird now that I think of it, who has 10...?) so I'd assume ppp0 is my "internet" interface, right?22:38
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, I think all files in that folder are text files.22:39
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: i thought for a second you were copying files from like, /proc or somewhere equally goofy22:40
TJ-sveinse: yes, or you can tell it which version you want. use the -h option to see more22:41
sveinseTJ-: thanks22:41
akikDexterF: you have "-o usb0" there which might not be a network interface?22:41
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, Just in case, I think you gave me a command to put everything in a tar file.  I have been looking for it but my cache wasn't big enough.22:41
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: no, but i'll give you one anyway22:41
DexterFakik, hence I tried ppp0 which appears in ifconfig. same result22:42
akikDexterF: i wonder if you need -t nat with POSTROUTING22:43
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: tar cfjv ~/tarball-name,22:43
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: ignore that22:43
=== Nicmavr is now known as Guest10784
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: tar cfjv ~/tarball-name.tar.bz2 /path/to/directory/full/of/stuff22:43
DexterFakik, I'll give it a shot, I'm terrible with iptables22:43
DexterFakik, looks like you're right, that goes through22:44
DexterFsame here, akik? iptables -A FORWARD -i ppp0 -o eth0 -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT22:44
akikDexterF: sorry not sure about that22:45
akikDexterF: don't think you need -t nat with that22:46
DexterFakik, those go through22:47
TJ-akik: DexterF correct, the FORWARD rules are for allowing packets in or out, the 'nat' table is about doing masquerading22:48
shazbotmcnastyTJ-, memphisto I think my issue has something to do that if I uncomment the "security = share" then samba won't start - no info in /var/log/syslog22:48
TJ-shazbotmcnasty: I haven't used samba for almost 10 years now but it has a reputation for being difficult to configure, rather like NFS :)22:50
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, I must have done something wrong.  It didn't write the file.  sudo tar cfjv ~/asteriskfolder.tar.bz2 /mnt/win/AsteriskBackup22:51
TJ-Docfxit: put the 'f' last in the list of options since it has to be followed by a filename22:53

gordonjcpsdsfasda: not particularly but it's the best of a bad bunch22:57
gordonjcpfrankly, Ubuntu sucks22:58
gordonjcpit's just that everything else sucks *worse*22:58
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: there's no "asteriskfolder.tar.bz2" in your home directory?22:58
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: ~ is a shorthand for your home directory22:58
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: also you didn't need sudo22:59
DocfxitTJ-, I understand this cmd has the name of the file to create and the folder to put it into.  It doesn't have the folder to copy it from.22:59
Docfxitsudo tar cjvf ~/asteriskfolder.tar.bz2 /mnt/win/AsteriskBackup22:59
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit, TJ-: Also, the thing about "f" being last is incorrect.22:59
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit, TJ-: I can confirm on 16.04 LTS that list of options, "cfjv", exactly as I had written it, works fine.23:00
Disaster_Areahey how do I get hdmi to work?23:01
Disaster_Areai plugged my laptop into my tv via hdmi cable23:01
Disaster_Areathere is a display but it's just showing my laptop background23:01
jerichowasahoaxDisaster_Area: try and drag a window off to the left or right side of your laptop screen23:01
Disaster_Areathat did nothing23:01
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, What part is the from folder and what part is the file name to put the files into?23:02
Disaster_Areastill just showing the background + launchbar23:02
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: the first argument after "cfjv" is the tarball ("asteriskfolder.tar.bz2"), and the second argument is the source directory ("/mnt/win/AsteriskBackup")23:03
jerichowasahoaxDocfxit: it can take absolute paths if you would prefer /mnt/win/AsteriskBackup/asteriskfolder.tar.bz2, but I don't recommend making that a regular practice, or you'll keep putting the old ones inside the new one23:04
TJ-jerichowasahoax: ahhh, you used the BSD method (no - prefix). I always use the POSIX form with leading -, in which case it fails23:06
jerichowasahoaxi thought the - prefix was a gnuism23:06
Disaster_Areaoh hm I can drag stuff and that does help in a way23:08
shazbotmcnastythanks memphisto!! Wherever you went. it was just the deprecated file in the default smb.conf23:08
shazbotmcnastydumb dumb dumb23:08
TJ-jerichowasahoax: not sure now you've said that; I recall it because it also affects 'ps'23:09
TJ-shazbotmcnasty: all fixed?!?23:09
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, Now that worked really sweet.23:10
shazbotmcnastyTJ-: yeah all fixed - just had to change the security = share to security = user23:11
Docfxitjerichowasahoax, It's perfect.  it went directly onto the windows share and I can open it in windows to see all the files.23:11
