jayjoI have 2 screens and one is rotated, now when I have my dock on the bottom the dash application search doesn't open. The dock still works just the "search for applications" does not work00:02
jayjoI see a post on askubuntu that mentions editing the /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf file, but I don't seem to have one00:03
jayjoalthough using cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager shows /usr/sbin/lightdm00:05
jayjoso actually 2 problems, help on either would be appreciated. Also after the rotation I can't seem to rotate my login screen00:09
jayjois it possible that I use lightdm for some things but not specifically the login screen? or will it handle all if it's the default display manager00:11
backnforthHow do I automatically update my ubuntu 18.04 vps?00:13
jayjoif my bar is working fine on the bottom of my screen, but searches do not show any content, does that mean anything in particular? I've seen some things saying it could be auto-starts failing?00:22
illuminatedwhat is the recommended way of installing .deb files?  gdebi or software center?00:23
leftyfbilluminated: dpkg00:24
jayjocan't seem to figure that out, going to move on. One last question - with two displays, what's the easiest way to conditionally set the resolution for the monitor? Right now because the rotated one seems to set the resolution, and then the standard horizontal monitor background image is very low resolution (the rest of the gui is fine)00:33

DoowWhat's the best way to back up my system config, should I just do put /etc in a regular backup / VCS repository or is that considered "bad"?06:40
DoowOr maybe I'n missing a lot of important things in that case?06:41
lotuspsychjeDoow: most of your data & configs are stored in /home06:43
lotuspsychjeDoow: depending how deep you want to backup of course?06:44
lotuspsychje!backup | Doow06:44
ubottuDoow: There are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning06:44
Doowlotuspsychje, good point, I'm backing up data already, this is just about config. But there are a lot of dot-files and directories in my home that I'd miss.06:45
lotuspsychjeDoow: did you look in all the hidden folders in your /home?06:45
lotuspsychjeDoow: is there a reason you plan this backup? moving to LTS or so?06:46
Doowlotuspsychje, depends on what you mean. I know they're there and I regularly modify parts of them, but I haven't looked in _all_ of them =)06:46
grr12314theres no need to look, as long as you backup your full home06:47
ducasseDoow: i keep an 'etc' directory in my homedir where i place copies of all the files i've changed under /etc, then simply back up my entire homedir06:47
Doowlotuspsychje, no specific reason other than I want to keep track of things in case something happens (failed harddrive, ransomware, fat fingers,...)06:49
lotuspsychjeDoow: ok roger06:49
Doowducasse, I think I'll add a symlink to /etc in my projects folder and then put that in a repository. That way I can keep the .git stuff out of the actual /etc. That way I get both versioning and backup (since I already backup my git repos).06:53
ducasseDoow: remember that not everything under /etc is readable by a normal user06:54
DoowYeah, I'll have to ignore some files, don't want my password hashes or certificates out there in the wild =)06:55
grr12314hi, why did ubuntu change the real rename to non-standard rename.ul and not give the option to use it by its standard name?06:56
lotuspsychjeDoow: in my opinion a good backup is an external media, organized into categorys. the moment you create a new config for a package you worked on long time= copy right away into your external category and avoid afterward pains06:56
lotuspsychjeluna_: not here please, only ubuntu support07:01
DoowSpeaking of which, is this the proper channel for ubuntu under wsl? I have nothing special right now, just curious =)07:03

pc_magasGreeding community. Do you know how I can locate the modules loaded in a kernel from a device provided via lspci?09:45
pc_magasI want to tacle the issue where no wireless interface is shown in ifconfig for my w-fi card.09:46
llutzpc_magas: lspci -k09:46
ehwpc_magas: lspci -k will show you that09:46
llutzpc_magas: tried ifconfig -a (if iface just was down)?09:47
pc_magasllutz, yes I tried the lspci -a and the interface is not shown on ubuntu 16.04LTS.09:49
xenohi, apt-get install -y apache2 in 18.04 manages to still go interactive - how can I avoid it?09:52
TvL2386pc_magas: I'd also check `dmesg` to see if your wireless card is listed/seen09:52
pc_magasThe issue is that I have Ubuntu 16.04 with a broadcom wi-fi chipset with the proriatery driver installed and suddenly the wireless interface went missing from ifconfig -a.09:52
pc_magasTvL2386, how I can filter it out via a specific id from lspci09:53
TvL2386pc_magas: I don't really know.... For my laptop I see the following in `dmesg`: [   65.601435] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)09:54
TvL2386pc_magas: and in lspci -k : 02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 (rev 3a)09:54
TvL2386pc_magas: this is not my forte, so what do you mena with sepcific id? I'm inclined to say `dmesg | grep ....` or something, but I don't think that's what you're lookig for09:55
llutzTvL2386 pc_magas : filter by pci-id, your card e.g. 02:00.009:56
TvL2386I just did `dmesg | less` and searched for "wifi" :)09:56
TJ-pc_magas: "lspci -nn -d::0280" should show only Wireless Network class devices10:00
TJ-pc_magas: but it depends on if Broadcom followed the standards!10:01
pc_magasThe driver is loaded and seems to be recognized by kernel as well: https://pastebin.com/W3md3Bdu10:02
TJ-pc_magas: show us "pastebinit <( lspci -nn; ip link show; iwconfig )"10:03
pc_magasSo the issue is why the network manager fails to assign an interface to the loaded broadcom interface. I wonder how network manager assigns interfaces to a specific card?10:03
pc_magasTJ- the results of the commands provided https://pastebin.com/xVPr2zc710:08
TJ-pc_magas: did the PC do a suspend/resume sometime before the interface disappeared?10:09
TJ-pc_magas: better show us the complete dmesg: "pastebinit <(dmesg)"10:09
BazmanI removed the gpu but now when I boot the computer gets stuck in another loop: When I login, the screen gets black and soon after that the login screen comes back.10:09
BazmanI tried the work around where you type Ctrl-Alt_F2 but you need to know your login name for that method and I don't (only the password)10:10
pc_magasTJ-, i guess because sometimes when it going to shut down it suspends and does not shut down10:11
BazmanI know that there is a method to find your login name by booting into recovery mode but my keyboard and mouse don't work on the recovery mode GUI so I'm pretty stuck10:11
TJ-pc_magas: there may be issues with the device being rediscovered on resume from suspend, due to ACPI problems, but the dmesg will tell us10:12
BazmanIt is still possible to login and repair the system or is reinstalling the only option?10:12
SimonNLBazman: whats been shown at your prompt10:12
TJ-Bazman: how can you not know your login name? is it set to autologin?10:12
pc_magasTJ- https://pastebin.com/rcEcAbWx10:13
pc_magasHere is the dmesg10:13
pc_magasBazman, when you boot into recovery mode does you allow you to have access to a recovery console?10:14
BazmanTJ: This is a new build the user name si some variation of my name but I've tried various permutations but can't seem to find the right one10:14
TvL2386pc_magas: TJ-: I'm also having a problem with my wifi. Sometimes it's missing. It happens very rarely and have never looked into it, but the following resolves it: `sudo rmmod iwlmvm iwlwifi ; sudo modprobe iwlwifi`. This is a workaround... Maybe something like this works for you as well pc_magas10:15
TJ-pc_magas: have you been using an external USB wifi adapter ?10:15
pc_magasTJ-, well as a backup I used external wi-fi adapter but after the error with inline broadcom occurs10:16
TJ-TvL2386: that won't help because pc_magas PC has a Broadcom device, not Intel10:16
TvL2386yeah he'll need to put his own drivers in there10:16
TJ-pc_magas: right, I'm just confirming it so I don't follow the wrong trail in dmesg. That device shows up as wlx00e1b012aaa210:16
pc_magasYes that is the external wifi interface used as a backup/temporary solution.10:17
daumin ubuntu 16 i'm trying to add a second ip address from a completely different block to my NIC via ip addr add xxxxx/xx dev em3 , ip addr show em3 shows it but then when i try to ping it or reach it from any external device it fails.  what ist he best way to troubleshoot this10:17
BazmanSimonNL: After typing Ctrl-Alt-F2 is shows hp-desktop login:10:18
SimonNLctrl+alt, t   does that show terminal ?10:18
SimonNLdoes on mnt10:18
TvL2386daum: it probably works just fine, but depending of where you are pinging it from, rp_filter may be causing issues, or maybe firewalls don't like it because you'll probably only have a default gateway10:19
TvL2386daum: if you ping that ip from another host in the same subnet, it should respond10:19
TvL2386daum: assuming your host isn't blocking the ping with iptables or something10:19
SimonNLsimon@simon-MS-7327 ~ $      shows my username in front10:19
Bazmanunfortunately Ctrl+Alt+t does nothing in Ubuntu 18.0410:21
daumTvL2386, ah right you are i added another ip to another server on the same subnet and it can ping the other servers ip10:21
SimonNLBazman: maybe a launcher on your panel10:21
daumTvL2386, how can i get it setup so that i can actually get to it from outside of the asme subnet10:21
TJ-pc_magas: I suspect this may be because the broadcom driver failed to build after a kernel upgrade. Let's check that. By the way "pastebinit" is a command on your PC - you can copy-paste everything inside the " marks here: "pastebinit <( lspci -nnvvvk -d 14e4:4365; ls -latr /usr/src; ls -latr /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/updates/dkms/ )"10:22
TvL2386daum: well, with multihomed servers it is always a problem to determine routing.10:22
BazmanSorry can you elaborate (Launcher on my panel)?10:22
SimonNLBazman: can you start up you terminal ?10:22
TvL2386daum: normally you have a management interface/ip and a "normal ip". The normal ip has a default gateway and the management ip only has specific routes10:22
TvL2386daum: I don't know what you exactly want10:22
TvL2386daum: how should the server behave :)10:23
TJ-daum: the problem is the remote devices don't have a route added to reach the PC10:23
BazmanNot with the methods I have tried so far10:23
pc_magasTJ-, not installed and is not my compotuter to install it.10:23
BazmanI can get into GRUB10:23
TvL2386TJ-: daum yeah good point... simply adding an ip to a host won't make it magically routable10:23
SimonNLBazman: from the menu maybe10:23
TJ-daum: e.g. if your LAN is and the PC is and you've added to it, then for all other PCs they need to do "sudo ip route add via"10:24
TJ-daum: typo, if your LAN is ...!10:24
BazmanIts a dual boot machine when I chose OS I can chose to boot into recovery mode, from there I can boot into GRUB command line10:25
TJ-daum: in the alternative, because all those other PCs will send packets for to the default gateway then you could add the route to the default gateway instead, which is easier since you only need to do it on the gateway, not on the PCs10:26
SimonNLBazman: sorry I'm not able to help you10:26
BazmanOK thanks anyway10:26
SimonNLgood luck10:26
pc_magasTJ-, https://pastebin.com/vgfr1WY010:26
BazmanIs only option to delete reinstall?10:26
TJ-pc_magas: OK, well pastebin the results of those commands. You know we have http://paste.ubuntu.com to use? preferable to pastebin.com10:26
TvL2386TJ-: daum: I'm curious as to why you would want to add this ip to an interface. It's not really good practice to have multiple ip spaces in a single layer2 domain10:27
war10ck_What's your issue Bazman10:27
pc_magasTJ-, i did not know that10:27
daumTJ-, thanks.  So my situation is the IP we're adding is going to be removing in your example the 192.168.0.X ip once we can test that the IP is properly functioning, so if i add that route wouldn't i need to change it to then route through that ips gateway?10:27
daumTvL2386, ^10:27
TJ-pc_magas: oh good, that info shows no driver is loaded, and that in /usr/src/ we have the module "bcmwl-" that should be built by DKMS, but there is no module in the ./updates/dkms/ directory for the currently running kernel, which suggests it failed to build10:28
daumI see in my current /etc/network/interfaces I have a post-up ip route add default via XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX dev em3 table 101 where the XXX is the current em3 IP's gateway10:29
TJ-daum: if you're changing the IP and removing the standard LAN IP then you'd need to add another 10.1.1.x subnet to the gateway so it has say and the PC has say - that way the gateway will know how to route packets correctly10:29
Bazmanwarl0ck:I did fresh dual boot install everything was fine then I tried to install drivers for the GPU (nVidia 384.90) and after that the PC won't boot I just get the same error looping [ OK ] Started NVIDIA Persistence Daemon. Stopping NVIDIA Persistence Daemon...10:30
pc_magasTJ-, so via modprobe bcmwl- should do the job right?10:30
TJ-daum: that "table 101"  sounds like it's configured to use "Policy Based Routing Tables"10:30
daumTJ-, TvL2386 so the goal is to basically get the new IP up and functioning, make sure it is reachable from external servers, then we will remove the old IP on that interface10:30
Bazmanwarlock: I removed the gpu but now when I boot the computer gets stuck in another loop: When I login, the screen gets black and soon after that the login screen comes back.10:30
TJ-pc_magas: no, there is no module, we need to find out why it failed to be built. Hang on whilst I gather the commands to check that10:30
daumTJ-, # ip route show table all|grep 10110:30
daumdefault via xxx.xxx.xxx.xx dev em3  table 10110:30
Bazmanwarlock: I tried the work around where you type Ctrl-Alt_F2 but you need to know your login name for that method and I don't (only the password)10:31
TvL2386TJ-: daum: what does `ip rule show` say?10:31
Bazmanwarlock: I know that there is a method to find your login name by booting into recovery mode but my keyboard and mouse don't work on the recovery mode GUI so I'm pretty stuck10:31
TJ-pc_magas: show us "pastebinit <( uname -a; dkms status )"10:31
war10ck_What version of ubuntu do you have ?10:32
TJ-Bazman: is it USB keyboard/mouse ?10:32
daumTJ-, TvL2386 here is ip rule show: http://dpaste.com/03BJ6K310:33
BazmanWarlock: ubuntu 18.0410:33
BazmanTJ: yes they are USB also they work in the regular Ubuntu login screen10:33

zigbee1Hi I want to run a script possibly with cron at a time each day but if this system is down and it hasnt yet run, run it then10:34
TvL2386daum: what was the problem again? Server is not pingable on it's new ip?10:35
TJ-pc_magas: Bingo! there's the problem! "added" should be "installed" - but it presumably failed to build so couldn't be installed. so we'll try to build it and collect the failure log if any, with "sudo dkms install bcmwl/"10:35
TvL2386daum: is it possible the server that is trying is not using the source ip you are expecting?10:35
daumTvL2386, it's pingable from within the same subnet, but outside of it isn't reacahble10:35
TJ-pc_magas: if it fails you'll see a message with the path to the build directory and a build log file. We'll need to pastebin that log file contents10:36
TvL2386daum: your "from xxxx/27" rule is only hit when the source ip is in that subnet. When another host pings xxxx, what source ip does it use? Does the gateway know how to get to xxxx/27?10:36
TJ-daum: pingable when the pinging PC is added to the same subnet? or pingable even from a PC in the default LAN subnet?10:36
TvL2386same subnet10:37
milphi, can anyone recommend me a simple cpu/memory/system (no gfx) benchmarking tool where i can compare results and hardware specs online?10:37
daumTvL2386, TJ- only pingable when the pinging PC also is added to the same subnet10:37
TJ-if the pinging PC is the same (new) subnet on the same LAN then the ARP requests will find the target10:37
Bazmanwarl0ck TJ: I can get access to the GRUB command line it that's any help10:38
daumTvL2386, my guess is is what you described with the gateway is the problem, I just am not sure how to add a specific gateway for the new IP10:38
TJ-daum: right, so as we said earlier, the gateway needs to be in the same subnet10:38
TvL2386daum: on your router you should add an ip that your hosts can use to route10:38
daumTJ-, TvL2386 yep there is one already setup10:39
TJ-daum: and can the gateway ping the target too?10:39
daumTJ-, TvL2386 so if this machine is XX.XX.XX.66/27, the gateway is XX.XX.XX.6510:39
daumTJ-, I don't have access to the router itself unfortunately10:39
daumthe server can ping the gateway10:40
pc_magasTJ-, https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/JY9QNST8r9/10:40
daumso my guess is i need to do something like my default via XXX similar to what i already did on the interface10:40
TJ-Bazman: if you edit the GRUB menu entry at boot-time (pressing 'e' when the entry is highlighted) you can add "init=/bin/bash" to the end of the line that starts "linux ..." then press Ctrl+X or F10 to boot with that. It'll boot to a bash shell as root, where you can then do "ls /home/" and see what user home directory names are, or you can find from the passwd file with "tail /etc/passwd"10:41
TvL2386daum: first thing I would do on your dualhomed server is run tcpdump to see if echo requests arrive10:41
TvL2386daum: second thing: mtr from the pinging host10:41
daumTvL2386, TJ- fyi this is the full interface config for em3 before I started adding this new ip10:42
TJ-daum: if packets for XXX.67 are to be forwarded/routed by gateway at XXX.65 then firewall rules need to ensure that subnet can be FORWARDed at the least10:42
daumTvL2386, ok - will do , will look to see how to get tcpdump up and running only listening for pings since if i listen to all traffic it's going to pick up the regular inbound requests10:43
TvL2386daum: tcpdump -i em3 -nn icmp10:43
TvL2386daum: can also do: tcpdump -i em3 -nn net xxxx/2710:44
daumTJ-, TvL2386 would this be much simpler if I could basically replace that entire section for em3 with the new ip info + gateway, so that it isn't dual homed?  I may be able to do that as we ahve other servers which can pick up the traffic10:44
=== gms is now known as Guest9499
TJ-pc_magas: so, I wwas correct - the DKMS build of the bcmwl module is failing with the current kernel. This is often a problem with proprietary/out-of-mainline-tree kernel modules. The mainline code evolves but the modules aren't kept up to date so fail to build10:44
TvL2386daum: yeah renumbering subnets is much easier as a big bang than what you are trying to do now10:45
pc_magasTJ-, so I will need to install and built it manually right?10:45
TvL2386daum: pbr (policy based routing) is complex. You need to think about how to answer, but also how to submit. Who initiates and who responds and how are source ip addresses selected on both end10:45
daumalrighty let me try that10:45
TJ-daum: dual-homing won't affect it, but I think TvL2386 was pointing in the correct direction about using policy routing because it's conditional.10:46
TJ-daum: I'd think a route in the main table should be all the PC needs, knowing to route via the gateway XXX.6510:46
TJ-daum: right now you could have the situation where packets arrive at .67 and the policy acts on those INPUTs but then there's no OUTPUT rule so the outgoing packets originate on the 192.168.0.x address, not the XXX.67, so the far end drops them10:48
TJ-pc_magas: No, you need to find/install updated source package that has the fixes10:48
pc_magasTJ-, like this one: https://askubuntu.com/questions/55868/installing-broadcom-wireless-drivers#6039510:49
BazmantJ: I typed it with a space and no quotation marks (was that correct), there were a lot of output to the screen but it's stopped not and does not appear to be doing anything10:49
daumah ok well let me see if i can just do the full flip out instead for now first need to move a few app settings around but will report back and appreciate both of your help so far TJ- TvL238610:49
TJ-pc_magas: what does "apt list bcmwl-kernel-source" report ?10:49
TJ-Bazman: that would be correct, yes. does tapping a key make the shell prompt show up?10:50
TvL2386good luck daum and you're welcome!10:50
TJ-Bazman: the idea is it doesn't start systemd init daemon, it runs just the bash shell so no services get started10:51
BazmanTJ: no the system is unresponsive, thank for explaining10:52

pc_magasTJ-, so terporaly use the USB wi-fi untill it gets fixed right?10:54
TJ-pc_magas: I'm afraid so yes, I'll try to find out if there's a developer that is supposed to maintain that10:54
pc_magasI wonder if in Ubuntu 18.04LTS the prob exists...10:56
pc_magasIf I downgrade the kernel will this prob temporaly get fixed?10:56
TJ-pc_magas: another option is to temporaily boot with one of the older kernels in the GRUB Advanced sub-menu10:56
pc_magasEg use an older one10:56
TJ-pc_magas: snap :)10:56
TJ-pc_magas: try the oldest see if it is OK. It may be that too many kernel upgrades have occurred and all the installed kernels cause the same issue10:57
TJ-pc_magas: The 4.15 kernel is from 18.04 so it will. You're using the 16.04 HWE kernel I presume10:57
pc_magasTJ-, yes10:58
BazmanTJ warl0ck: Is the only remaining option to format/reinstall?11:03
TJ-pc_magas: I've alerted the #ubuntu-kernel team and -devel too; hopefully someone will respond11:03
pc_magasTJ-, thank you11:04
pc_magasTJ-, I also will mark as "It affects me" in launchpad as well11:04
TJ-Bazman: hmmm, instead of editing the GRUB menu, go into its "Advanced" submenu and try booting into recovery with the oldest kernel version listed there - usually at the end of the list11:05

pc_magasTJ-, should I post the pastebin errors to the bug in launchpad as well?11:08
TJ-pc_magas: no, the bug report contains the same info already11:08
daumTJ-, TvL2386 ok so I basically swapped out my entire em3 section and the post-up add... with the ip settings, however doing ifdown em3 and ifup em3 keeps bringing back the original ip settings, does it not re-read the /etc/network/interfaces file?11:08
pc_magasTJ-, next time I will try to avoid using broadcom (I think switching to atheros should be a good long-term maintainance option)11:09
TJ-daum: if you're still using ifupdown package you may need to use "ifdown --force ..." if you've been playing about with things manually... and that assumes you have matching down scripts for all the up scripts11:11
pc_magasUsually atheros kernel modules are in kernel right?11:11
TJ-pc_magas: yes, broadcom is a pain11:11
TJ-pc_magas: yes11:11
TJ-pc_magas: same with Intel11:11
BazmanTJ: After pressing 'e' the only options are F10 to boot, F2 for command line, Esc to discard changes and return to previous menu (there is nothing that mentions advances)11:11

AnticomTvL2386: never used it myself. Problem is my current company is all-in on the windows thing11:47
TvL2386Anticom: ^ meant for you11:47
AnticomTvL2386: was assuming that, that's why i responded ;)11:48
Anticomeven our servers are running windows and there's no ftp server / openssh installed so i have to deploy stuff using rdb11:48
TvL2386yeah sorry ;)11:48
Anticomi know this sucks yada yada, i can't change it so i have to deal with it11:48
TvL2386Anticom: sounds like you need to update your linkedin profile11:48
AnticomTvL2386: ?11:48
TvL2386to attract new employers :)11:48
AnticomTvL2386: hahaha :D11:49
Anticomwell we're about to move away from this BS and move to linux servers11:49
Anticomand i'm hoping to aid bringing that change11:49
Anticomso all in all it's good over here11:49
TvL2386oh stay then :) Might be interesting :)11:49
TvL2386Anticom: I've introduced ansible here with the winrm stuff... Can now use ansible to manage Windows servers11:50
AnticomSo back to my original question: I don't know either what's happening there exactly since i've never used that feature myself11:50
TvL2386it's quite ok11:50
AnticomTvL2386: I've suggested that to our admin already. However currently we've got a lot of temporary stress so it's postponed for now11:50
AnticomBtw this is the feature i'm talking about: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/brendangrant/2009/02/17/the-most-useful-feature-of-remote-desktop-i-never-knew-about/11:51
AnticomIs XRDP still a thing? It sucked a few years ago but iirc it had plenty of features11:52
TvL2386but Anticom, in those scrshots they are sharing resources (which you refer to as volumes, I guess you mean D:\ for example)11:52
TvL2386but that is not D:\ in the remote host11:52
BazmanIf I do go down format/reinstall route there is an option to do this using the boot disk/ but that only seems to format the root drive should I also format the home and swap drives as well to make sure the dodgy drivers are removed and so that I can set up a new user profile11:53
TvL2386that "D on BREND...." is not a drive on the remote host right11:53
TvL2386so how does that differ from sharing folders using remmina?11:53
AnticomTvL2386: as far as i understood it you can share a local volume with the remote host which gets mounted11:53
TvL2386Anticom: there's no such thing as a "local volume" on linux11:53
AnticomTvL2386: well i was imagining that you where able to give the remote machine a directory on your local system etc.11:54
TvL2386Anticom: and defined "mounted on the remote system"11:54
Anticomwhich would be mounted as "a drive" on the remote host11:54
Anticomkind of a reversed mount11:54
TvL2386I understand what you mean. I think when doing Windows to Windows RDP, you want local drive C:\ to be local drive X:\ on the remote11:54
TvL2386for example11:54
TvL2386but I don't think that is accomplished with the windows RDP client in those screenshots11:55
TvL2386the only way to get a drive letter on the remote, is to mount a cifs share11:55
TvL2386and I'm not an expert on that matter11:55
fath0mHello. Could somebody help me to get my hybrid graphics to work on my new Dell Inspiron 15 5570? I have i5-8250U with Radeon 530 graphics. Even though I can see system recognizes gpu in xrandr, it still does not kick in when I play a game for example.11:56
fath0mI'm using Ubuntu 18.0411:56
TvL2386of course with remmina and the windows rdp clients (mstsc) you can share folders/drives, but they are not mounted remotely... they can be browsed remotely11:56
TvL2386if that makes sense11:56
fath0mhttps://hastebin.com/yiverabega.rb output11:57
TvL2386oh anticom got disconnected.....11:57
BazmanSorry I got disconnected did anyone answer this question. If I have to format/reinstall there is an option to option to do it from the installation disk but it only seems to so it to the root partition is this sufficient to get rid of the dodgy gpu drivers and delete my current profile (because I've forgotten the login)12:05
BazmanOr should I format the home and swap drives as well12:05
ducasseBazman: your username and password is stored in /etc, so not in your homedir. there's no data stored on the swap partition.12:14
Bazmantnx ducasse! so if I just use the format and reinstall option installation disk it should fix both problems right (dodgy gpu drivers and missing login)12:18
MasterPieceAnticom, I know what am I saying and if you have a little willness to do that, you should just search about volume mount option by remmina, That is the solution for you, If you are trying to connect from a ubuntu client to windows remote host by sharing a volume between them. END12:19
BazmanDucasse: What's concerning me is this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuReinstallation which says at the end that the user accounts must be re-created with the same login and password. But I have forgotten my login!12:19
AnticomMasterPiece: got any link / documentation on how to do this in remmina? I couldn't find anything about this12:19
BazmanDucasse: Is there a reinstall process that will let me set up a completely new login and password12:20
ducasseBazman: do you remember the username? the password is only necessary if you had an encrypted home12:21
BazmanDucasse: unfortunately not (It's some permutation of my name but I've tried every combination I can think of but nothing works)12:21
llutzBazman: why would you reinstall to recover your login? boot into single-mode, "ls -l /home" to find your login, "passwd" to give new passwd, reboot12:22
llutz"passwd <loginnam>" that is12:23
TvL2386Anticom: MasterPiece: I'm sorry, but I also cannot find any documentation of mapping some linux folder to a Drive on the remote Windows host using Remmina12:25
TvL2386Anticom: MasterPiece: I can share a folder which can be accessed on the remote Windows host by going to \\tsclient in the Explorer12:25
TvL2386and I think that a part of the problem is: What do we mean with "shared folder", "volume", "drive"12:26
MasterPieceTvL2386, Anticom see pv, I send a pic12:29
Bazmanllutz: that works thank crunchy I'm in "minimal-ubuntu"12:30
TvL2386MasterPiece: yes, that is how you share a folder. But as I recall, Anticom wants that folder to be mapped to a drive on the remote host12:31
Bazmanllutz: I assume to delete the dodgy drivers I just use: udo apt-get purge --auto-remove libcud*  sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove cuda*  sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove nvidia*12:32
TvL2386MasterPiece: as I interpret it, he wants to access that folder by browsing to M:\ for example (`net use ...... M:\`) ??????12:32

ConsoleFxHi All, I am trying to use a directive e.g. UseDNS no against Ubuntu 16.04. Once the config change is done and when I restart the ssh daemon, ssh doesn't restart. When I remove the line UseDNS no, everything is back to normal. Shall I assume UseDNS no doesn't work in Ubuntu 16.04?13:14
RaybihAt the beginning there was only Chaos, Chaos was the first thing to exist: "at first Chaos came to be"13:15
TvL2386ConsoleFx: on my ubuntu-16.04 server `man sshd_config` (and then search for UseDNS) tells me that UseDNS is set to "no" by default13:22
=== quipa is now known as maximjaffe_
ConsoleFxTvL2386, this is the error message (which says UseDNS no is not supported): https://pastebin.com/s4z52fXu13:23
TvL2386ConsoleFx: if a add a line "UseDNS no" to /etc/ssh/sshd_config and do `systemctl restart ssh` it works fine13:23
TvL2386ConsoleFx: openssh-server                      1:7.2p2-4ubuntu2.413:24
TvL2386/etc/ssh/sshd_config line 91: Directive 'UseDNS' is not allowed within a Match block13:24
TvL2386I think the error message is really clear13:24
TvL2386do no use it in a Match block13:25
ConsoleFxTvL2386, Match block meaning? sorry didnt get this TBH13:25
ConsoleFxTvL2386, I basically had added this setting at the below of the file13:25
=== maximjaffe_ is now known as quipa_
ConsoleFxhow to know if its a match block ?13:25
TvL2386ConsoleFx: a Match block contains configuration options for sshd that only apply to users/groups that match a condition13:26
=== quipa_ is now known as maximjaffe
TvL2386for example: chroot all users of group `sftp_group`13:26
ConsoleFxTvL2386, Awesome. I got it working.13:27
TvL2386cool :)13:27
ConsoleFxYeah you are right. It was a wrong place for UseDNS to fit in13:27
TvL2386yup, well sshd was right about that :)13:27
ConsoleFxI placed in in above area and its kicking a** ;)13:27
ConsoleFxTvL2386, thanks for the pointers buddy :)13:27
TvL2386yeah you must have a Match block at the bottom which obviously wasn't terminated13:27
ConsoleFxBut I was unable to make any sense at the first place. Probably I had to google a bit about match blocks :D13:28
elisa87Do you know how should I fix this? https://hastebin.com/pulisujutu.coffeescript13:30
TvL2386elisa87: got a bit more context for us?13:32
elisa87TvL2386: I am running this as the first 3 comments in a remote docker basically need to install a library for which I need to update apt13:33
TvL2386I'd assume ubuntu-16.04, or ubuntu-18.04, but a google for your "segroup 65534 failed" gives me containers13:33
TvL2386pretty important information :)13:33
TvL2386my guess is you are not root in that container13:34

TvL2386my 16.04 server has it in the repos13:36
elisa87where should I write this?  libgtk2.0-dev/xenial-updates 2.24.30-1ubuntu1.16.04.2 amd6413:36
TvL2386I still don't think you are root13:36
TvL2386can you execute: id13:36
TvL2386uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)13:36
TvL2386elisa87: you shouldn't write that, it's just output of my `apt search libgtk2.0-dev`13:37
TvL2386to show you it is in the repo13:37
TvL2386but your apt-get update fails13:37
TvL2386so you don't know13:37
elisa87I see.13:37
TvL2386You've got a permission problem13:37
elisa87unfortunately everytime I run something I have to wait for queue13:37
elisa87but I will tell soon :(13:38
arpcatHello, I have a machine that still uses zesty... do-release-upgrade says it can't upgrade to bionic. What are my options?13:38
TvL2386you do not have permission to update the apt repo and installing packages can't be done either13:38
twainwekfriends, updates can and will break systems. it's very easy to upgrade, but much more difficult to fix a broken system because of an update. so why are auto download and install of updates enabled by default? and why is it completely transparent to the user?13:38
TvL2386twainwek: you referring to servers or desktops?13:39
TvL2386twainwek: my 18.04 desktop always asks me13:39
TvL2386like this morning, got a popup whether I wanted to install updates13:39
twainweki was on a 16.04, and now i have a half broken system. never was i asked whether i want to download/install or enable auto updates13:40
TvL2386and to be honest, I can't remember the last time I ended up with a broken system13:40
twainwekwell that's great, but it does and will inevitably happen for someone else13:41
TvL2386twainwek: what happened?13:41
elisa87TvL2386: but I am a root user in Docker how don't I have permission?13:41
twainwekso it's beyond me as to why anyone on earth would think it's a good idea to enable them and even worse make it transparent to the user13:41
twainwekand it even updated my kernel it seems13:41
TvL2386twainwek: true that, it will happen... so you probably have the package `unattended-upgrades` installed13:42
TvL2386twainwek: my opinion is that you'll need to update anyway sooner or later. This to prevent vulnerabilities... There's always a chance to bork up your system13:42
TvL2386twainwek: but yeah, transparently, without opt-in, is not good13:43
TvL2386twainwek: I remember ubuntu server installer to ask in the end 3 questions: automatic updates, manual, or landscap13:43
TvL2386I always chose manual13:43
TvL2386elisa87: show me you are a root user in your Docker container13:43
TvL2386elisa87: go into your container and type: id13:43
elisa87I did still waiting for the job to fail13:44
elisa87it is in starting state13:44
twainwekok. thanks all. i'll try to fix it later tomorrow when i have some time13:44
TvL2386elisa87: mkay, how about: docker run -it myimage /bin/bash13:44
TvL2386elisa87: and then type: id13:44
TvL2386something like that13:44
elisa87I am not sure how to do that because I use a json script that runs my job13:45
TvL2386elisa87: is it some public image your using? How do you execute it?13:45
elisa87no private image TvL238613:45
TvL2386thought so :)13:45
elisa87uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)13:46
TvL2386elisa87: okay thanks13:46
TvL2386elisa87: I did not expect that :)13:46
TvL2386elisa87: are you able to reproduce this in a way you can share?13:47
TvL2386elisa87: in other words, could you give me a Dockerfile that can reproduce the issue?13:48
elisa87no this private for some reasons and  I cannot share TvL238613:48
TvL2386I know that your stuff is private, but can you make a Dockerfile that does not contain sensitive data but does have the issue13:49
TvL2386look, best way to get help is to give us instructions on how to reproduce13:49
TvL2386so we can see it ourselves13:49
TvL2386FROM ubuntu/xenial    / RUN rm -rf .... && apt-get update && .......13:51
TvL2386that's not private :)13:51
elisa87so I have not made the dockerfile but I am using it. I am not sure how they made it TvL238613:51
elisa87is my command echo 'deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates main restricted universe multiverse' >> /etc/apt/sources.list correct?13:53
elisa87and why should I exactly do  rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*  ?13:53
TJ-elisa87: I'd guess on the host it's maybe not reserved a wide enough range of sub-UID/GIDs, so when the container tries to use its internal 65534, the baseUID+65534 on the host is outside the allowed range13:53
elisa87so what do you suggest TJ- as for solution?13:54
TJ-elisa87: I've avoided docker but it works the same way as lxc/lxd as far as namespaces etc, so check the host's /etc/sub{uid,gid} see what the range is. E.g. here, for LXD, it reserves 65536: "lxd:231072:65536"13:55
TJ-elisa87: if docker is reserving less than that, then it would prevent the guest from using 6553413:56
elisa87TJ-: I think I am not following you exactly. Which host are you talking about? inside the docker? my local machine? what is the exact linux command? I am not having as much information and is hard to follow the high level info13:56
TJ-elisa87: the host that 'hosts' the docker container13:57
TJ-elisa87: "cat /etc/sub{u,g}id"13:57
elisa87here is the current result I get https://hastebin.com/ayoqopufic.coffeescript13:58
TJ-elisa87: the format is "username:start:range"13:58
elisa87well, I do not have access to the host that runs the docker. I am running it remotely!! TJ-13:59
elisa87how do I know on which host is it being run?13:59
TJ-elisa87: the README.md shows that error, and is in the context of a tool "runrootless" that avoids it. You may find some clues there. https://github.com/AkihiroSuda/runrootless14:01
TJ-elisa87: ahh, it's more findamental the uid/gid ranges. Read this, the section "Unmapped users and oddness" https://www.cyphar.com/blog/post/20160627-rootless-containers-with-runc14:04
TJ-elisa87: it seems the remote host is configured to run rootless containers (or your dockerfile is) and that breaks the Debian/Ubuntu tooling since the user is not mapped into the container14:08
elisa87so, how can I fix it? TJ-14:09
TJ-elisa87: fix Docker I guess14:09
TJ-elisa87: this docker article explains it. It seems to confirm what I said about a 65536 mapped range14:11
elisa87the blog does not clearly state what is the solution neither your answer feels very beginner friendly14:12
elisa87I am not sure how to use https://github.com/cyphar/remainroot suggested in the aticle14:14
TJ-elisa87: the answer is, fix the host14:14
TJ-elisa87: you will need to discuss this with whoever manages the remote docker host system14:15
elisa87well remote host or my own? I have nothing to do with remote host. TJ-14:15

GetafixHello. I'm trying to help a friend having an Ubuntu18.04 usb boot. He sees an icon of a box having a gear and a wrench on the top panel. If he clicks on it he just sees the word "error". Has anyone seen this before, or should I try my chances in the forum?15:07

Getafix@lotuspsychje: https://ibb.co/k9e1ET15:14
TJ-Lord-Kamina: right, as I read it, those diff - (minus) entries are telling you that the version you're building (8.38-3.1 ) no longer has symbols that were in an earlier version, such as "pcrecpp::RE::Extract" and "pcrecpp::RE::GlobalReplace" - you can check that in the source15:15
lotuspsychjeGetafix: hmm sorry i havent seen this icon before, perhaps someone else?15:16
TJ-Lord-Kamina: be aware however, if symbols really have been removed, the SONAME needs to change15:16
Lord-KaminaI would assume the packages hosted in the ubuntu archive are not broken so I don't think they've actually been removed?15:17
lotuspsychjeGetafix: just curious, this .iso you download was 18.04.1 ubuntu-desktop?15:18
TJ-Lord-Kamina: well you've got the source-code, so check!15:18

jsjolenI just updated to 18.04. Is there a 'low graphical fidelity' setting to the new UI?15:22
Getafix@TJ: He actually mentioned that he installed the flatpak package. Could it be that? I could ask him to uninstall it and see.15:24
Lord-KaminaI copypasted from 8.38 because I ran grep -R on a folder where I've got several versions of pcre3 but it's also in 8.39 sorry.15:24
Lord-Kamina(possibly stupid) question... does dpkg invoke gcc/g++ on its own for generating the symbol files?15:27
TJ-Getafix: could it be VirtualBox or similar?15:28
Lord-KaminaBecause the symbols file lives inside the package, but what could it be that during the build, one version of gcc is being used to build but another is being used to get the symbols (I don't really know how dpkg generates these)15:29
TJ-Lord-Kamina: the Makefile (debian/rules) controls calling the compiler via the debhelper (dh_*) tooling15:30
Getafix@TJ: I doubt he dared to install VirtualBox on that one. I will ask that too, though. It was a very good thought!15:30
MibixFoxugh after updates  can only get ubuntu to boot in to emergency mode :(15:30
MibixFoxcould a usb stick in there mess up the boot?15:31
Lord-KaminaAfter the first few tries, what I tried was forcing the compiler version by manually setting CC. CXX, etc that are passed to configure.15:32
Getafix@TJ, @lotuspsychje: It seems the information I currently have is too poor for further pondering on that. Thank you both for the assistance and the ideas!15:32
MibixFoxit gets to the grub menu15:32
TJ-Getafix: I've not been able to find that icon anywhere15:32
Lord-KaminaBut I wonder if that might still result in rogue calls to the default gcc when looking up the symbols. Basically that's what I'm asking.15:32
Getafix@TJ: Me neither. I asked him for a proper screenshot to get a clearer icon. The image he shared was a photo of the screen.15:33
lotuspsychjeMibixFox: a little more details please? ubuntu version? updates when/how? what happens at wich point15:33
TJ-Lord-Kamina: OK, so you've confirmed that Scanner::Scanner() is in the source, so now explore before and after it to see if it might be conditionally compiled via a #ifdef SOMENAME clause. If it has such, it may be the configure script didn't enable compilation of that code15:33
ioriaGetafix, i bet on flatpack... let us know :þ15:33

=== root is now known as Guest76217
Lord-KaminaAlso I just noticed...16:08
Lord-KaminaIf you look at the build log, you'll notice the "missing" symbols pretty much match up to the "new symbols" it finds a couple lines earlier.16:08
TJ-Lord-Kamina: have you been using the "backportpackage" tool in ubuntu-dev-tools for this?16:10
TJ-Lord-Kamina: ignore that! I hit the keyboard wrong!16:10
TJ-Lord-Kamina: I don't see that in the log; All I see is the "- ... SYMBOL ..." line (denoting it's in debian/xxxx.symbols but not in the new output, then the "+ #MISSING" line reporting it as not being present in the new build16:11
Lord-KaminaIn fact...16:12
Lord-KaminaIf I run sed 's/ \(_.*\) \(.*\)/ (c++)"\1" \2/' __input__ | c++filt on those lines, the output is the "missing" symbols.16:13
TJ-Lord-Kamina: take lines 20-21 of the original log. Line 21 is generated by prefixing "#MISSING $VERSION" to the line read from debian/xxxx.symbols - so they will look identical16:14
Lord-KaminaWhat I mean, TJ-, is I run that sed script on lines 5-12 (deleted the + from the diff, though)16:16
Lord-KaminaAnd the output was almost identical to what it's looking for.16:16
Lord-KaminaThe only difference was @Base 2:8.39-3ppa-trusty1 instead of @Base" 7.716:17
bratchleywhat can I check if the "Add Printer" page on cups isn't prompting for a password?16:19
bratchleyit's just immediately saying I'm not authorized16:19
Lord-Kamina(I did it on another version ofthe build, but presumably with the one in that log it would have been @Base 2:8.38-3.1ppa-trusty6)16:19
TJ-Lord-Kamina: yes, the symbol signature has changed. The point of the #MISSING is to alert you, as maintainer, that you need to *change* the debian/xxxx.symbols file (if you're happy the output is correct) so that dpkg-gensymbols only causes additions :)16:20
TJ-Lord-Kamina: so the method signatures have changed, therefore the old signature is indeed missing, so those can be removed from the xxxx.symbols file. Then, shlibs will be happy and the package will build16:21
=== SimonNL_Afk is now known as SimonNL
Lord-KaminaI mean I think I see the solution now, I need to update the symbols file in the package using the output from the previous lines and it should work, yes?16:21

MysticMixlesHey! I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my chromebook. I followed the tutorial on the ubuntu website, and it installed successfully, but when I actually run startunity, the desktop loads with no launcher, no terminal, etc. I can't do anything. There is just a desktop background. I can create a blank file or a folder, but the right click menu is missing the open terminal option. Any ideas?16:47
linuxlovehello guys16:47
lotuspsychjeMysticMixles: for ubuntu on chromebooks i think you need the crouton method16:48
MysticMixlesIt is crouton16:48
lotuspsychjelemme check16:48
BazmanTJ: There is an Xorg.0.log.old and Xorg.0.log both created on Jul 30 21:0716:48
JacobTDCHow is `fdrawcmd seek <drvsel> <cyl>` used?16:49
JacobTDCSpecifically, what does `drvsel` do?16:49
pragmaticenigmaMysticMixles: Does your chromebook come with an NVdia Tegra CPU?16:49
TJ-Bazman: the "old" is the one replaced by the latter file. So "Xorg.0.log" might help16:50
lotuspsychjeMysticMixles: on the first page it mentions crouton is not part of ubuntu, so we cant actually support it really here16:50
alexandruTJ-: doesn't seem like it16:50
MysticMixlesI know there's no guaranteed support, but I figured I'd ask. If I'm not allowed to, let me know.16:50

TJ-alexandru: I'm not sure then; my main concern would be installing the AMD-sourced driver may cause conflicts between that and the Ubuntu supplied package, unless you remove the Ubuntu driver package first16:53
alexandruTJ-: Understood. I'll think about it. :)16:54
JacobTDCpragmaticenigma: Also, is it safe to just seek to whatever cylinder I want while messing around? Are there measures in place to keep the drive from destroying itself?16:54
TJ-JacobTDC: on most floppy drives, no there are not, you need to know the geometry of the drive16:54

compdocBazman, did you try upgrading to 18?17:14
naccBazman: looping reboot, or looping login?17:14
compdocis that why its rebooting?17:14
BazmanIt's afresh install of 18.04 (dual boot with Windows10) it worked fine till I tried to install some nvidia drivers and now I'm stuck with a looping lop in17:15
nacccompdoc: "that" being ?17:15
BazmanI already purged the offending drivers and put in some older ones but the looping log in remains17:15
naccBazman: ok, drop to a tty and remove the thing you installed17:15
naccBazman: ah ok17:16
Bazmannacc: looping login. I put in the correct details the screen goes black for a moment and then comes back as the login screen again17:16
naccBazman: did you check in the logs for what is happening? ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log17:16
naccBazman: are you possibly using Wayland as your environment?17:16
Bazmannacc: yes but there's a lot of them what should I be looking for?17:17
naccBazman: there's one log. You mean it's long? look for "EE"17:18
Bazmannacc: there is an option for wayland but pretty sure I'm not using it17:19
naccBazman: easy enough to know, just make sure Xorg is selected when you login17:20
Bazmannacc: Ah ok first line EE: Nvidia failed to initialise the Nvidia kernel module17:20

ioriaBazman,   ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf   what it says ?17:49
pragmaticenigmasomeone_: Support for software and drivers not obtained from Ubuntu sites and software repositories is not something that can be supported here. The drivers included with Ubuntu should have been working. It is possible that the game itself requires ample amount of CPU usage in addition to GPU ussage. Seeing the CPU usage go up during gameplay is not unusual.17:50

biebI have a hdd that holds an OS and small amount of data.. its 250gb.. I want to put a TB drive in the small form factor pc (will only hold 1 hdd). I was thinking about using dd to copy the 250 to the 1tb drive.. how can I then expand the volume to use all the rest of the tb?19:07
TJ-crmlt: you do? why not add "set -x" to the top of the script so you can see each line as it is executed?19:07
TJ-bieb: use LVM rather than hard partitions, that way you can choose how to use the free space19:08
biebTJ-: how will that work once the dd is complete? can I change to lvm at that point?19:08
TJ-bieb: or create partition(s) on the new drive and copy the file-system(s) from the old drive into them, then use "resize2fs" on them (assuming the file-systems are ext3/4)19:08
crmltoh wait thee hook script  hasnt "chmod +x"19:09
TJ-crmlt: oops19:09
biebTJ-: thanks!19:09
crmlti somehow missed it19:09
TJ-bieb: then the latter idea would work, if the file-systems are ext19:09
EriC^^bieb: create a big partition, dd the partition/fs then use resize2fs to enlarge the fs19:09

Pcost8300Good afternoon, can you help me please. i want to know if it is normal to see permissions stablished for an user www-data for the /bin folder19:39
geirhano, it should be owned by root19:40
HardradaWhen i am making a swap file via the terminal i use the line sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1024 count=8000 but what does the "bs=1024" mean ?19:41
Pcost8300mmm i dont know what happened but almost everything is owned by it19:41
geirhasounds like someone might have done a sudo chown -R on the wrong dir19:41
FreeBDSMHardrada: sector size in bytes19:41
ment0sis there any way to mount partition with exec but for single user ?19:41
Pcost8300yeah, but it isnt just there19:41
Pcost8300is almost in every folder19:41
Hardradaso if i got 4 gigs of ram, i should write bs=1024 count=8000 ? :P19:41
Pcost8300at /19:41
FreeBDSMHardrada: 'block size'19:42
mojtabaHello, do you know why the home directory is 100% used, although it has some free spaces? http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Jm4RdZRjMq/19:42
geirhaso they used something like    sudo chown -R www-data /*   # Do NOT run this19:42
HardradaFreeBDSM, ok thank you for that. But would you recomend to have 8000 for the swap size if i got 4g of ram ?.19:42
=== RaptorJesus is now known as DudeBroMan
FreeBDSMHardrada: I don't know19:43
=== DudeBroMan is now known as RaptorJesus
geirhaPcost8300: typical case is doing it on  /foo/bar/* but accidentally getting a space at the wrong place, so it ends up as /foo/bar /*19:43
Pcost8300geirha: yes but i believed it was something done by a program, so then it was done by hand, wasnt it?19:43

pragmaticenigmaHardrada: what are you trying to do?19:43
Pcost8300oh god19:43
geirhaPcost8300: could be either, but my guess would be done by a human by accident19:44
Pcost8300should i run chown -R root:root / ?19:44
Blakes5hey all, I had a 32 GB SD card that I used DD to copy to another 32 GB SD card. However, the destination card was slightly smaller than the origin and DD not caring about the size apparently wrote the partition larger than the disk. I've tried deleting the partition to no avail in Windows and Linux using gparted & fdisk. I've tried overwriting the partition table. That didn't work. Any suggestions on what else I could try?'19:44
Hardradapragmaticenigma, increase my swap size. My laptop is getting slow. and i think the swap size can help me.19:44
geirhaPcost8300: No, lots of things should not be owned by root19:44
geirhabest bet is a re-install, really19:44
pragmaticenigmaHardrada: that isn't how you do it19:44
geirhaPcost8300: though double check if it actually was recursive. is all files inside /bin also owned by www-data?19:45
Hardradapragmaticenigma, :S so i cant make a swap file via the terminal ?. Do i have to reboot in to an usb / cd to do it from there?.19:45
Pcost8300geirha i see, then i need to check every folder... im trying to run postgresql and it keeps telling me denied permission19:45
Pcost8300yes it was19:46
Pcost8300boot, build, dev, etc, home19:46
geirhaPcost8300: ok, then you can also no longer use su or sudo, since these must be owned by root and have setuid set19:46
pragmaticenigmaHardrada: First, increasing swap size isn't going to solve a sluggish computer. It will increase the sluggish behavior because reading and writing to the harddrive versus RAM is much much much slower19:46
Pcost8300those that werent chowned are dev, proc, run and sys19:47
pragmaticenigmaHardrada: You would be better off determining what programs are utilizing more than their fair share of system resources and removing them.19:47
Hardradapragmaticenigma, oh. Ok :P then I was wrong. Maybe i have to upgrade my laptop then.19:47
geirhaPcost8300: yeah those are separate filesystems that don't react to chowning19:47
Pcost8300geirha: i see, but i cannot run postgresql anymore19:47
Pcost8300and this is a server .. crap..19:48
geirhaPcost8300: you might have luck with chowning back enough files and then reinstalling and reconfiguring every single package, but a re-install will likely be much faster19:48
geirhaor restore from backup19:48
pragmaticenigmaHardrada: Sounds like it might be the better path. If you are still interested in trying to increase or change the swap file, these instructions are very good at explaining each step and the impact to your system: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-add-swap-space-on-ubuntu-18-0419:48
Pcost8300geirha: ok, thank you for your advice19:48
Pcost8300i will try to do it so..19:48
mojtabaHello, do you know why the home directory is 100% used, although it has some free spaces? http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Jm4RdZRjMq/19:48
Hardradapragmaticenigma, thank you alot. I am currently considering the Dell Xps laptops as an replacement :).19:50
pragmaticenigmamojtaba: Size is calculated based on bytes used. However, files must be written to blocks. What you are likely seeing is all blocks of the partition are used, even though some space remains.19:51
pragmaticenigmaHardrada: If you are interested in recommendations, head over to the #ubuntu-offtopic room, there are many helpful people there that can offer recommendations and suggestions19:51
mojtabapragmaticenigma: So what does it mean? In windows there is re-fragmentation, is there something like that in Ubuntu?19:52
mojtabaCan I still use my home dir, or is it likely to fail?19:52
Hardradapragmaticenigma, ok, thank you for your time and help. I will look into it later.19:52
pragmaticenigmamojtaba: Out of space is out of space, I don't believe it's going to fail, however applications are more likely to crash if they are trying to write to the home directory19:53
mojtabapragmaticenigma: but why it is showing that amount of available space? That's a big size.19:53
TJ-mojtaba: did you recently delete some large file(s) ?19:54
TJ-"809G  760G  7.6G 100% /home" suggests that some process still has a handle to a large file - hence (809-760) != 7.619:54
mojtabaTJ-: yes, multiple files, with average of 500 Mg.19:54
TJ-mojtaba: the space isn't really freed until the last file handle is released, so likely something still has handles to them19:55
mojtabaTJ-: I guess I have mounted another filesystem in home before.19:56
TJ-mojtaba: you can check with this: "sudo ls -l /proc/[0-9]*/fd | grep deleted"19:56
mojtabait is unmounted now.19:56
Pcost8300<geirha> Could you please tell me, if i install postgresql again, it will erase all data i have in it?19:57
Pcost8300will all that data perish?19:57
TJ-the kernel keeps tabs on the handles in /proc/{pid-of-process}/fd/ with symlinks from the file descriptor number to the file. When a file has been unlinked it adds "(deleted)"19:57
mojtabaTJ-: There are a lot.19:58
jar00stcan someone help me with a issue in ubuntu 18.04 with the network managment, i can't create a hotspot19:58
TJ-mojtaba: right, are the big files listed? if so make a note of the pid(s) of the processes holding them19:58
mojtabaTJ-: I don't see any big file. (I think I have mounted another file system in home directory before. Although it is unmounted now.) Could that be relevant?20:00
TJ-mojtaba: no, separate file-systems20:00
TJ-mojtaba: this will list the PIDs as well as the (deleted) files: "sudo find /proc/[0-9]*/fd -ls | awk '/deleted/{print $11, $13}' "20:01
mojtabaTJ-: No big file is listed.20:02
geirhaPcost8300: it won't touch the data, but you'll need to chown back the data files manually20:02
TJ-mojtaba: check the "df -h" output again, it may have changed20:03
crmlt TJ-: tgx20:03
Pcost8300<geirha> ok thank you man20:03
mojtabaTJ-: nope20:03
TJ-mojtaba: it could be inodes but I don't think that'd cause the df output for blocks used to be 100% ... try "df -i" to show inode usage, lots of small files can cause inode exhaustion even when there's free blocks20:05
mojtabaTJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/bXnxRDX9cN/20:06
TJ-mojtaba: well it's not inodes! it's only used 3% on sda820:07
mojtabaTJ-: I ran df -I20:07
mojtabasmall i20:08
TJ-mojtaba: do you have quotas enabled?20:08
mojtabaTJ-: I am not sure, how can I check that?20:08
TJ-mojtaba: it might be worth trying the command as 'root' in case what you're seeing is related to the user. "sudo df -h /home"20:09
TJ-mojtaba: you'd know if you were :D20:09
TJ-mojtaba: I'm trying to figure out why the sums don't add up!20:09
mojtabaTJ-: /dev/sda8       809G  760G  7.6G 100% /home20:10
TJ-mojtaba: can you afford to do a reboot?20:10
mojtabaTJ-: :~ unfortunately not at the moment.20:11
TJ-mojtaba: if the values persist after a reboot I'm going to suggest an fsck is needed because I suspect the file-system meta-data is wrong. What type of file-system is sda8?20:11
TJ-mojtaba: nothing exotic then. Is this 18.04 Bionic?20:12
mojtabaTJ-: Nope, still 16.04 LTS20:12
TJ-mojtaba: I'll ask about; those figures look weird. I still think it's (deleted) files though!20:13
mojtabaTJ-: When I restarted, I will come back here if the figures were odd. :)20:13
TJ-mojtaba: can you afford to log-out/log-in so all $USER processes are terminated?20:13
mojtabaTJ-: :) That's like restart; actually I am in the middle of doing something.20:14
Pcost8300geirha: will you help with something please, how do i see all history of commands run on the terminal?20:14

TJ-Pcost8300: "history" command20:14
geirhaPcost8300: each interactive bash session will store its history in ~/.bash_history on exit20:15
geirhaI'd start with looking at root's; /root/.bash_history20:16

Pcost8300 chown -R www-data: www-data / var / www / owncloud /20:22
Pcost8300that is the complete output of it20:22
TJ-Pcost8300: there's a pretty sane way to fix ownership/permissions I've used successfully. I create a (LXD) container with all the same packages installed, then with the container stopped but with access to it's root file-system, I run a script that iterates through the container, reading the ownership/permissions and copying them to the host, using "chown --reference=path/to/container/rootfs/path/to/file20:22
TJ-Pcost8300: and "chmod --reference=path/to/container/rootfs/path/to/file   /path/to/file"20:23

Guest98324Anything interesting in the chat room today?21:44
naccGuest98324: that's not how this channel works.21:44
Guest98324Really, how does it work?21:44
naccGuest98324: this is the ubuntu suport channel. Do you have an ubuntu suppor question?21:44
Guest98324Yes... I have one which is kinda unrelated but I am tempted to ask it.... Where is the support team located and how many employees you have if you don't mind me asking21:47
naccGuest98324: this is a volunteer channel21:47
naccGuest98324: and no, that's not a relevant question to this channel21:47
jayait is saying the the same reply"third party resources disabled"21:49
Guest98324LOL, so where is the volunteered team located, just curious and I suppose it's not that irrelevant since you already answered21:49
hggdhGuest98324: anywhere in the world21:49
naccjaya: and then does it exit?21:50
Guest98324I see... so what about the servers, datacenter and so forth?21:50
naccGuest98324: perhaps ask this in #ubuntu-discuss21:51
Guest98324So, what does it take to be a voluteered in terms of technical abilities?21:52

naccjaya: what does `lsb_release -sd` say?22:04
jayano command 'lsb ' found22:05
naccjaya: that was not the command i said to run22:05
naccjaya: `lsb_release -sd`22:05
naccther is an underscore between 'lsb' and 'release'22:06
naccjaya: not sure; plenty of people have done the upgrade. Did you try disabling manually any 3rd party repos?22:09

ubottunuevo: Please elaborate; your question or issue may not seem clear or detailed enough for people to help you. Please give more detailed information; for example, we might need errors, steps, relevant configuration files, Ubuntu version, and hardware information. Use a !pastebin to avoid flooding the channel.22:10
jayano,i haven't changed any.first of all ,i dont know what is a third party repos22:10
naccjaya: anything not provided by ubuntu22:10
jayai did not understand , what do you mean by "anything not provided by ubuntu"22:12
naccjaya: a third party repository is one not provided by ubuntu. e.g., a PPA, or something you added by hand following online instructions.22:12
jayano,i did not22:13
naccjaya: can you pastebin `sudo apt-get update` output?22:13
jayaW: unknown Multi-arch 'no' for package ('compiz-core','compiz-gnome')22:17
jayathere are many lines like the above22:17
naccjaya: sounds like something is messed up already on your system; maybe someone else can help you debug it22:18
jayacan you tell where can i find the third party repos22:19
naccjaya: /etc/apt/sources.list*22:19
tomreyn(this '*' is there on purpose)22:19
nacctomreyn: thanks :)22:20
naccjaya: it might be in /etc/apt/sources.list or a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d22:20
tomreynnacc: not sure it needed an explanation, so just in case ;)22:20
jayabash: /etc/apt/sources.list: permission denied22:20
naccjaya: you don't run them, they are text files.22:21
jayathis is the output when i ran that command22:21
naccjaya: it's not a command.22:21
naccjaya: tbh, it seems like you might lack some basic knowledge of using ubuntu; do you really have data you need to keep on your 14.04 system?22:22
jayai just started. and i recently installed ubuntu.22:26
naccjaya: oh, then yeah, you probably don't have any data, or not much. Back it up to a USB drive or somewhere, and reinstall 18.04.22:27
nacc!manual | jaya: and read the manual...22:27
ubottujaya: and read the manual...: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/22:27

BarBQI added disk in ESXi 100 GB, thin provision and it was suppose to increase the root disk "System will auto detect new disk and use it to expand Root Filesystem." Well it didn't and then i powered the machine down and removed the disk and now i have some initramfs prompt that comes up when i boot.22:53
BarBQIs  there a way to fix this or should i snapshot back? Should i now have used thin provision?22:54

leftyfbwhy is that?23:58
yukenNo clue.23:58
leftyfbshouldn't we be diagnosing that instead?23:58
JensWhat that link says is basically "$ sudo hostnamectl set-hostname linuxconfig"23:58
