donofrioso what is the "Con" in using this irqpoll?  I mean I think the "Pros" for me is stable wifi but just wondering flip side05:29
donofrioI think its working now - http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Gy9DjfkfVB/05:32
aloo_shudonofrio: probably the con is that some routine wastes a few cpu cycles on *polling* certain irq s where otherwise the irq (16 in our case) would judt trigger by itself and get caught, but the drivers(s) seem to be misding that. and probably a few other irq s tha *would* work, will also get polled instead05:35
aloo_shuit's a symptomatic fix by me, but the alternative could be looking at mudule code, donofrio05:36
aloo_shuand I do not think the penalty is heavy - or do you do irq intensive work?05:37
donofrioI'm good for now....if anyone finds a diffrent way to get the same results I'll lurk here like normal - excet I have no irc logs because of this ircbotnet thing....05:37

BluesKajjoeby52, using manual partitioning during the install ?10:53
joeby52yes. but even if I wipe the drive and let it use it all it sets up efi partition and then tries to install grub into sda2 again10:53
BluesKajdamn uefi raises it's ugly head again...i use legacy10:54
worstjejoeby52: What does sudo update-grub tell you exactly?10:54
joeby52that's another problem, I've tried turning legacy on and uefi off and it still won't install as 'needs' secure boot???10:55
joeby52failed to get path of 'cow'10:56
worstjeSecure-boot can be toggled inside your BIOS usually. If you need the .efi for starting securely, you'll want /EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi for that as that is the one that's been crypto signed.10:56
joeby52maybe I should still with mint 18 :(10:57
worstjeIs this question of any use for you? https://askubuntu.com/questions/254491/failed-to-get-canonical-path-of-cow10:58
worstjeSkimming it, it seems as if the problem is that you are running grub from the livecd, which causes a conflict because its /boot is different from the /boot you need.11:01
joeby52Thank you, that web page has helped I think. I'll let you know how I get on :0)11:01

GekkoI installed Ubuntu Server 18.04 on this SOC device, and partitioned the eMMC to have a ESP and /. However, now I see something created a 700~ MB swapfile. Is it save to just remove the entry in /etc/fstab? I'm working with limited resources and can't allocate 700 megs for a swapfile.11:05

Sven_vBI'm trying to setup a firewall on Ubuntu trusty, but if I use ufw the way tutorials tell me, I get slammed by the combinatorial explosion because it seems each rule can only have one IP, one port range, one protocol (IPv4/6). is there a way to define lists of IPs (groups/roles maybe?) and port sets (consisting of multiple port ranges), then configure rules by group names?12:31

circleI'm partitioning an SSD for a new installation. It's 500GB, and I'm going to have roughly 300GB as a Windows partition and  200GB for Ubuntu. /home will be on a seperate, 2TB HDD. What I'm wondering about is what happens when /usr/bin fills up on the SSD? Will it be easy to put further applications on the separate 2TB HDD?12:36

TJ-circle: You'll find it hard to exceed 15GB for the Ubuntu system files if /home/ is separate. I generally use LVM and don't allocate all the free space to the logical volumes to begin with, just extend them as required12:38
brontosaurusrexcircle: 200gigs should be plenty for /usr12:39
TJ-circle: i use a separate /var/ and /home/ - /var/ can grow especially if you have containers, snaps, and caches for various packages12:39
RichiH24With our IRC ad service you can reach a global audience of entrepreneurs and fentanyl addicts with extraordinary engagement rates! https://williampitcock.com/12:43
circleTJ-: but won't most applications i have be stored in /usr/bin?12:45
circleTJ-: i could feel that eventually if i downloaded big applications that would fill up 130gb or so12:45
TJ-circle: packages install all over, /usr/share /usr/bin/ /usr/lib/ /var/{lib,cache}12:47
circleTJ-: yeah, agreed, but not in /home12:47
circleTJ-: for the most part12:48
TJ-circle: You'd be able to install all 50,000 packages in 130GB I think :)12:48
TJ-circle: packages never install in /home/12:48
circlepackages don't, some applications do12:48
circlepretty sure steam puts games there, for example12:48
brontosaurusrexWell, at least .config section is in $HOME12:48
TJ-circle: applications write files into /home/ yes, because that's per-user actions12:48
circleTJ-: essentially, i'd like to use the ssd for the OS and most important applications (firefox, irc, stuff I use often) but have most storage on the 2TB HDD. do you think I could use LVM for that?12:49
TJ-circle: but in terms of the *space* used in the system directories, /usr/lib and /lib/ are the primary users, and I've rarely needed a root-fs larger than 12GB and I install/build a LOT of packages12:49
TJ-circle: sure, you could even set it up as mirrored so if one device fails the data isn't lost12:50
circlehmm, i'd have to study LVM but it sounds intriguing actually12:50
circleany downsides?12:50
hiigHey guys, quick question: If I have a startup script, what should I put in it if I want to open a new terminal window on login with byobu?12:51
TJ-circle: the way it is organised is, raw block devices (say /dev/sda3) are marked as a Physical Volumes (PV) with metadata. A Volume Group (VG) is then created having one or more PVs. Then, Logical Volumes (LVs) are created to hold the individual file-systems using the free space in the parent VG. These appear as /dev/mapper/$VG_NAME-$LV_NAME and can then be formatted with a file-system12:52
TJ-circle: the Ubuntu installer can/does LVM installs especially if you choose Full Disk Encryption, but it allocates all free space in the VG to the LVs which is sub-optimal because you lose flexibility.12:53
=== Freddish_ is now known as Freddish
circleTJ-: so would I make a volume group consisting of the SSD + the HDD and make logical volumes from that? What would be a better way to set it up?12:54
TJ-circle: E.g I allocate 8GB for the root-fs. When it gets to 95% used, I simply do (online, no reboot required) "lvextend -L +4G VG_NAME/LV_NAME; resize2fs /dev/mapper/VG_NAME-LV_NAME" (assuming an ext* file-system) and it expands immediately12:54
TJ-circle: if you want mirroring you'd have a partition in each disk set as PVs, make the VG from those, and when creating the LVs specify the option to create a mirror12:55
papabear69With our IRC ad service you can reach a global audience of entrepreneurs and fentanyl addicts with extraordinary engagement rates! https://williampitcock.com/12:56
TJ-circle: if you just want to use all space but not make mirrors, you can - when creating the LV - specify which PV device to use12:56
circleTJ-: what about if i want to use the SSD for /home as well but eventually the SSD fills up and I want to start using the HDD for /home as well, would that be configurable12:56
TJ-circle: so you could have both disks (actually partitions on the disks) in the same VG, but create the LV for the root-fs on the smaller device, and the LV for /home/ on the larger12:56
TJ-circle: yes, you can do that, lvextend can be told to use space from a particular PV12:57
circleinteresting, sounds amazing12:57
circlenot sure why i havent heard of it12:57
circleTJ-: thanks, i'll look into that and probably end up going with it12:58
TJ-LVM is more of an Enterprise level storage layer so for most desktops it's not been that important, until you want flexibility - it sure beats trying to figure out how to resize partitions!12:58
TJ-circle: you might want to play with it inside a virtual machine to get a feel for it before doing it 'for real' :)12:59
circleTJ-: probably a good idea12:59
circleTJ-: are there speed implications if i make a 'wrong' choice in my LV structure12:59
TJ-circle: once you 'get' it you'll love the flexibility it gives you12:59
TJ-circle: not that I can think of, it's just a logical organisation layer, it's not a layer inbetween applications and disks. It uses the device-mapper functionality to 'map' the logical view of the storage to the physical devices13:00
circleTJ-: yep, fair enough. thanks for the help13:01
TJ-circle: it allocates 'extents' which are typically 4MB blocks13:01

pragmaticenigmaspartan2276: I would reach out to hiri's customer support for assistance in installing their application.15:26
arvin_i do agree though that Ubuntu should really stop defaulting to snaps for gnome-system-monitor, gnome-logs, gnome-calc15:26
arvin_I hope they reconsider that for 18.1015:26
arvin_the average user unfortunately won't know to uninstall the snaps and reinstall with apt15:26
spartan2276wait I have to reinstall it with apt-get15:27
spartan2276wow now I'm confused as hell15:27
pragmaticenigmaspartan2276: Hiri is an application that is not supported by this channel. You will need to contact Hiri's customer support for further assistance15:27
arvin_im sorry, that was my fault15:27
arvin_my comment was unrelated to yours15:27
spartan2276but this is a snap issue not an application onw15:28
spartan2276all I need is the exact command to add the darn snap/bin to may Path environment15:29
pragmaticenigmaspartan2276: Again, the application provided is not through canoncial or the ubuntu channels. This is the not the correct support channel. You will need to reach out to Hiri's customer support for further assistance. They are familiar with their application and will be able to assit you in determining the correct solution to your issue.15:29
spartan2276when I do this "export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/snap/bin" nothing happens15:29
arvin_spartan, no one really owes you anything here. Make start by improving your tone15:29
arvin_second, I already explained PATH variable above15:29
arvin_third, this is third-party software, #ubuntu support isn't meant for any problem you ever run into on ubuntu or linux15:30
marxjohnsonIf you're on ubuntu you shouldn't need to add anything to the PATH for snaps to work15:30
marxjohnsonthey should "just work"15:30
arvin_so if you type "snap list" you can see if it even installed15:30
pragmaticenigmaI doubt that is the issue the original questionar is dealing with. And assumptions made with unfamiliarity of the application will only confuse others.15:31
arvin_(btw I'm just a guy that stumbled in here, I don't speak for #ubuntu)15:31
arvin_but I do hope my message about snaps and gnome-calc, gnome-system-monitor, and gnome-logs is heard :)15:32
arvin_spartan2276: when you type that command in termal, if you echo $PATH, you'll see snap/bin now in there. If you hit the Super key and search for your app, you might see it15:33
arvin_but you shouldn't need to add snap/bin to your path is the ultimate message15:33
pragmaticenigmaarvin_: please stop... spartan was already asked to take their question to the appropriate support channel15:33
arvin_got it15:34
pragmaticenigmaand again, we don't know what spartan was attempting to do. While the main executable is on the system path, they may be targetting a library or component directly, which isn't on the system path15:34
pragmaticenigmaMy assumption is that the application may not have installed correctly in the first place. Once that is resolved, I believe spartan's issue will also be resolved15:35
arvin_right, I think "snap list" was what I was referring to check that15:36
pragmaticenigmayes, but that just reads a configuration file... it doesn't mean that the application is working15:36
arvin_right, but snap is pretty sandboxed, isn't that the whole point? are there half-assed installs? asking, not stating15:37
pragmaticenigmaplease mind the language arvin_15:37
pragmaticenigmaTo put focus on your previous statement. Snaps are designed to allow developers a direct channel to keeping their application up-to-date on all systems. Rather than submitting their code and waiting for a distribution to pick it up.15:38
pragmaticenigmaSnaps are able to provide their own libraries that may or may not be the same version as the host operating sytsem. The main goal is to allow snaps to remain up-to-date, even on older systems.15:39
arvin_I see. It's just odd for a snap to misbehave on a popular distro which is why I suspect something else was up15:39
spartan2276hah! I simply added the app to /opt and ran it from there and works15:39
pragmaticenigmaThe purpose of gnome-calc, logs, etc... from Canoncial, is proof of concept. The intent there is to give other developers an idea how to make a snap of their application15:39
arvin_all in all, not trying to be difficult15:39
spartan2276snap sucks15:39
arvin_I see, but POC on all four may be a little too much15:40
ToadisattvaI have not been impressed with the snap packages so far15:40
arvin_snap doesn't suck, it serves its purpose. I just don't think the average user needs those vital packages as snaps. They load slower for sure.15:40
arvin_apt is perfectly suited for that15:40
Toadisattvathere was all this hype about how much easier and better snap packs would be than your old apt get, but for me it hasn't stood up15:40
arvin_theming is an issue with snap/flatpak but they're all getting better. in due time15:41
BluesKaji can't be bothered with snaps15:41
Toadisattvaone of those if it ain't broke don't fix it situations15:41
leftyfbarvin_: do you have some sort of proof that applications installed via snap run slower than ones installed via apt?15:41
BluesKajdon't see any advantages15:41
pragmaticenigmaokay, i think we've moved off topic here everyone... lets clear the way for other support requests15:42
arvin_leftyfb: yes, my eyes lol. I don't want to be difficult here. But snaps first load is a known issue.15:42
arvin_pragmaticenigma: they'd be coming in if there were any ;)15:42

aroonifor some weird reason; upon startup; ubuntu wont allow ssh connections even though i have this rule setup with ufw; [24] 22                         ALLOW IN ;; only running sudo ufw disable; sudo ufw enable seems to make it work.  1) any reason why my rule is wrong? 2) as a work around, how can i make sure that that command runs on every system startup.15:43
arvin_leftyfb: I apologize, it was flatpak15:44
arvin_I'll see myself out, you've been great everyone thank you15:44
arvin_but I started on a fresh install, and loaded up calculator and it took a noticeably long time, where apt starts instant. so my point still stands15:45
pragmaticenigmaarvin_: for further discussion on snaps, please join us in #ubuntu-discuss15:45
pragmaticenigmaarooni: Does it go back to a blocked state on reboot?15:46
arvin_will do, thanks15:46
leftyfbpragmaticenigma: or #snappy15:46
aroonipragmaticenigma: it does;  it works fine after i shut it down and restart the ufw (until a system reboot)15:48
arvin_enjoyed the discussion, take care everyone15:49
pragmaticenigmaarooni: I think the issue is that there is a simplier way to enable SSH with ufw.15:51
pragmaticenigmaarooni: remove your custom rule from the configuration. Then run the command "sudo ufw allow ssh"15:52
aroonipragmaticenigma: i guess i was trying to prevent ssh connections to my laptop from anywhere in the world; or when i'm connected to public wifi didnt want incoming requests to be going on15:52
aroonibut i dont have password auth set up for ssh ; so i'm sure turning ssh on would be pretty safe overall15:53
aroonisince it'd only be key based auth15:53
pragmaticenigmaarooni: My recommendation is don't run SSH on a laptop. Outside of that... let me see if I can find another solution15:53
pragmaticenigmaoh, look same article I was reading has what you're looking for15:53
pragmaticenigmaarooni: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/ufw-essentials-common-firewall-rules-and-commands15:54
aroonipragmaticenigma: well thats why i was trying to only allow ssh from the one home network ip address id connect to it from15:54
pragmaticenigmaarooni: "sudo ufw allow from to any port 22"15:54
aroonipragmaticenigma: that'd probably work; but then i worry that any comptuter on a public wifi scenario could still ssh in ;  why wouldnt my specific ip address rule work15:55
pragmaticenigmaarooni: The issue with home IP network is that 192.168.x.x is a common private network block. So depending on where you take the laptop it is possible that network also uses 192.168.x.x addresses.15:55
pragmaticenigmaarooni: You can remove the 0/24 and just place the final octet in the IP address15:56
leftyfbarooni: are you trying to allow ssh to your laptop from your home over the internet or only from your local network?15:56
pragmaticenigmaleftyfb: They appear to be interested in allowing access when they're on their home network15:57
pragmaticenigmanot from the internet15:57
aroonileftyfb: correct;  only from my home network; but on occasion i do use my laptop in a public wifi scenario15:58
arooniwas trying to allow only the fixed ip address i'd ever connect to (from my home network) but no other addresses;15:58
leftyfbarooni: edit your sshd.service and add in a ExecStartPre= to check to make sure you're on your home network before starting the ssh daemon15:59
leftyfbarooni: there's another way to limit ssh in via ip as well15:59
arooniooh thats nitfy;  so the ssh server wont even run if i'm not at my home network15:59
aroonileftyfb: that wouldnt prevent me from making (outgoing) connections from the laptop right16:00
leftyfbonly allow ssh connections in16:00
arooniwhats the other approach you mentioned16:00
leftyfbalso, if you add this to the very beginning of your public ssh key      from=",localhost,"16:00
leftyfbso something like    from=",localhost," ssh-rsa AAAAB23423......16:01
arooniwoah neve rknew you could do that;16:01
leftyfbchanging the ip to the machine you'll be ssh'ing from16:01
arooniso i can specify multiple ip addresses that way right16:01
leftyfbas I've shown above16:01
arooniwhich of those methods would you prefer?  the key stuff looks pretty easy16:02
leftyfbthe key stuff is more user-manageable16:02
aroonithen i can just allow the ssh as a rule as pragmaticenigma mentioned above via ufw16:02
leftyfbediting the systemd unit is easy but could get overwritten and not as easy to remember to port over for new installs/upgrades16:02
aroonistill wonder why my allow a specific ip address didnt work with ufw;  oh well;16:03
leftyfbthe downside to the "from" solution is, there's a minuscule chance someone could have that ip you allow, but then they still need to get in using a key. The systemd solution eliminates all possible ssh exploits16:04
leftyfbI don't use ufw. I know how to manage iptables directly :)16:04
aroonileftyfb: someday i hope to have your skillz16:04
leftyfbarooni: you've been using linux since at least 2009. I'd image you're pretty close16:06
aroonistill learning;  you remember from this channel from that long ago ? lol16:06
leftyfbarooni: nope, I wasn't here that long ago. On Efnet though16:07

newde__lotuspsychje: I've switched to ubuntu from debian which I think used the default gnome3 desktop enviroment. I quite liked it. It seems like ubuntu came with it's own flavor of gnome so I installed gnome-shell18:49
pragmaticenigmalotuspsychje: Ubuntu 18.04 uses a customized version of Gnome Shell, there is the option for installing the un-Ubuntufied Gnome-Shell desktop, which doesn't have all the customization from Canonical18:51
pragmaticenigmanewde__: Because Gnome-Shell and Ubuntu-Gnome use shared libraries, there is minimal overhead having both installed at the same time.18:51
pragmaticenigmanewde__: Most of the differences are in the apperance, which is controlled through theme files, and a few other small tweaks, mostly handled with config files18:52
newde__pragmaticenigma: Ok great! Yes I guess I was a bit lazy and didn't want to go tweaking everything around...18:52

IhrFusselAre The LTs kernels secure? I mean since LTS versions stay on one (outdated) kernel21:31
milpi think there are lts versions for kernels too, so they are provided with security updates21:32
hiigAnyone able to help me compile something? Have no idea what to do. As far as I know, I've got all the required files, but the video I watched was for arch, and makepkg is not available. I don't know what to do with the PKGBUILD file now21:32
naccIhrFussel: not sure what you mean.21:33
naccIhrFussel: official ubuntu kernels get security support, yes.21:34
IhrFusselmilp, do you know if 4.15 is such a LTS kernel? Or do the Ubuntu devs just backport any security fixes from later kernel versions?21:34
naccIhrFussel: if you think that the upstream kernel is somehow *more* secure than the distro kernels, you probably don't know what you're talking about.21:34
milpIhrFussel https://www.kernel.org/ you can see the lts versions here21:35
IhrFusselnacc, tell that to all the people who claim that having the most recent kernel is always best21:35
naccIhrFussel: who claims that?21:35
IhrFusselI heard that a lot of times "wow your kernel is pretty outdated, you should update"21:36
naccIhrFussel: and please, stick to Ubuntu support here. Perhaps you want #linux for such random, seemingly unfounded claims.21:36
naccIhrFussel: without context, that's FUD.21:36
naccIhrFussel: as in, specific versions, who is saying that, and why they say that.21:37
IhrFusselI heard that a lot regarding Android kernels so I thought maybe the same applies to Ubuntu21:39
naccAndroid provides security updates for their kernels as well.21:39
naccIhrFussel: again, complete FUD.21:39
IhrFusselWell good to know then...so in short Ubuntu kernels (until support ends) are pretty much as safe as official newest linux kernels21:41
hggdhIhrFussel: *probably*. Supposing the newest kernel are safe21:42
naccIhrFussel: I feel like you need to understand they have totally different models. Distros support distro kernels, not upstream. Ubutnu has a security team that is responsible for all security updates, not just kerenl. Those typically are backports in response to CVEs.21:42
naccIhrFussel: but as I said, I have no idea why someone would assume newest kernels are strictly safer. Oftn times they have bugs (hence dot releases)21:42

Khaoticany idea why running sudo commands hangs?22:00
tomreynKhaotic: see /var/log/auth.log ~/.xsession-errors for any error messages.22:03
tomreynKhaotic: also discuss what you upgraded from22:03
Rootyjrcan anyone see this?22:06
tomreynKhaotic: if you're running wayland this may be why22:06
UEFI-ChallengedI am having problems with an Acer Spin 1 install with ALL flavors of ubuntu.22:06
tomreynRootyjr: yes22:06
UEFI-ChallengedI see you, Rootyjr22:06
Khaoticsounds familiar22:06
Khaoticwhat is it?22:06
Rootyjrcool just wanted to see if this channel let unregistered users talk22:07
UEFI-ChallengedThe install hangs at "Installing efi_x84_64"22:07
tomreyn!wayland | Khaotic22:07
ubottuKhaotic: Wayland is a display server protocol that can be used instead of X. Ubuntu 17.10 uses Wayland by default on systems that support it. For more info, see https://wayland.freedesktop.org/22:07
UEFI-ChallengedIt is not possible to change the Spin 1 to Legacy boot mode, so UEFI is the only option.22:07
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: maybe this is 32-bit uefi? if so, this would explain this situation22:08
UEFI-ChallengedI have tried multible settings in the laptop bios...secure boot on/off, etc, etc.22:08
UEFI-Challengedthe biggest problem is there doesn't seem to be an error thrown that I can find.22:08
UEFI-Challengedit is a quad-processor box, so it is POSSIBLE, but unlikely to be 32 bit.22:10
tomreynKhaotic: what is returned when you run this in a terminal? echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE22:10
UEFI-Challengedolder model Acers are 64 bit.22:10
Khaotictomreyn, x1122:11
UEFI-ChallengedWhere can I look for errors...syslog is not good, as it just stops updating the process when the job hangs.22:11
UEFI-Challengedalso, the box comes standard with Windoze 10/64 bit...so I don't think 32 bit is the issue....be nice to find an error somewhere to be sure.22:12
UEFI-Challengedgrub2 actually installs and boots to s grub2 prompt22:13
tomreynKhaotic: okay so wayland is notgetting in the way with sudo, check those logs.22:13
UEFI-Challengedbut I have no way of knowing where in the install process it is and whether enough has loaded to try to boot from grub2 command line22:14
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: i'm not saying 32-bit CPU, i'm saxying 32-bit uefi, that's a different thing.22:14
Simoniousso linux on chromebook, I'm looking at crouton - I really just need a shell, no X required, is the chromebook a painfree and reasonable option? (I like it because it's small and I want to carry it around to flash various targets)22:14
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: can you get the exact model # for your system and look up the exact system specifications please?22:15
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn:  I understand, I think.  You are implying that the firmware process is 32 bit (as the lubutu dist is not and the processor is not).22:15
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn:  doing that now.22:15
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: right. but i just noticed you said that grub2 installed fine?22:15
tomreynif so, it may be more of a partitioning issue.22:16
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn:  if I kill the install (after it hangs) the machine will boot to a grub> prompt22:16
tomreyni'm not sure what would happen with a 32-bit uefi22:16
tomreynoh okay so the installation never succeeds22:17
UEFI-ChallengedThe partitions look OK....1 EFI and 1 Linux22:17
Khaotictomreyn, what should i be looking for in those logs?22:17
Khaotici think it's got something to do with the wifi drivers22:17
Khaotici have an asus rog mobo22:17
UEFI-ChallengedRight...it hangs during the grub2 install at the UEFI section...but the grub2 program installs and runs22:18

tomreynSimonious: if you are wondering whether your new linux system should be a chromebook (you have not boughtr it, yet), then i'd say most likely not.22:19
Simonioustomreyn: I've got the chromebook here, pulled it out of a stack of unloved, the mousepad doesn't work well.. if it were a simple terminal like a raspi or a beaglebone it'd be exactly what I'm looking for.22:19
Simonioustomreyn: I've poked at it a bit here and it doesn't look like a simple path, so I'll probably just go grab a an old centrino thinkpad out of the junk pile.22:21
SimoniousI liked the chromebook because it's light and tiny22:21
Simoniousbut if it's a pita, I'll just go with the ThinkPad.22:21
UEFI-Challenged<tomreyn>  I'm not finding anything that specifically mentions the UEFI spec of the Acer SP111-32N-P6CV22:22
BowStarDoes anybody know a cheap laptop (like the chromebook) which can run ubuntu 18.04 and is good enough for coding, Java and some office work?22:25
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn:  I see a reference to an older model SP111 that talks about it being 64bit UEFI22:25
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: me neither, it's badly documented. it has a cpu which is a likely suspect, though22:25

=== John_ is now known as Guest54754
UEFI-Challengedor perhaps a new question...perhaps it would be easier to test to see if it is a 32 bit UEFI?  How would one do that?  Install a 32 bit ubuntu version?22:27

SimoniousBowStar: pi-tops are a thing22:27
SimoniousBowStar: I do a little development on a beaglebone too.22:27
SimoniousBowStar: but I do most of my dev work from command line.22:28
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: get the latest bios update, then try again. i read on a german language forum that someone else had difficulties installing ubuntu until it was updated, due to a firmware bug with how it addresses the internal storage.22:28
tomreynKhaotic: you're looking for anything that looks like an error message on this logs. you can post them using pastebinit, if you like, and i can have a glance22:29
tomreyn!pastebinit | Khaotic22:29
ubottuKhaotic: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit22:29
Khaoticim not seeing any22:29
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn: That could be.  Getting an updated bios is going to be a delay...I blew away Windoze 10 as step 122:30
=== Fred_ is now known as Guest23089
UEFI-ChallengedI never had this much trouble with a new install on a new machine before now.22:31
tomreynSimonious: IIRC by default croutin installs as a chroot, so an 'embedded' system below the actual chrome OS. in terms of performance this can be ok, but it is quite the hack.22:31
tomreynSimonious: the thinkpad will most likely be very easy22:31
Simonioustomreyn: yeah, it's almost ready to go.. ;)22:31
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: it is 'complicated' hardware22:32
UEFI-ChallengedPerfect.  My luck.22:32
tomreynthis is a low cost cpu22:32
UEFI-ChallengedWell, I'm running 3 webservers on Raspberry Pi hardware....so I figured a name-brand machine would be at least a bit easier than that.22:33
Bashing-omUEFI-Challenged: Acer: many require that trust be set to get around that vendor lock-in : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2330267 .22:33
UEFI-Challengedand Ubuntu runs REALLY WELL from the USB stick.22:33
tomreynthe raspberry pi platform has much better support than this cpu ;)22:34
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn:  That makes sense, but how do you set the trust if it didn't get to the part yet that creates the shim file?22:34
tomreynor platform rather22:34
tomreynUEFI-Challenged: i think you were responding to Bashing-om22:35
UEFI-ChallengedI actually created the shim.efi file once by clobbering the initial python program that was stuck...it stuck on the next one, but the shim.efi was there...22:35
UEFI-Challengedbut in the end it didn't help22:36
Bashing-omUEFI-Challenged: setting trust - if applicable - is in the firmware settings .22:36
Bashing-omUEFI-Challenged: also: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2333630 <- oldfred : Ubuntu on Acer Aspire new Laptop .22:38
UEFI-ChallengedAh..right...Bashing-om....I know where that setting is, but it requires selecting a file as a trusted boot.  That requires the file to be installed.  The install fails prior to creating the file to trust.22:38

tomreynUEFI-Challenged: here's how to get access to logs on the ubuntu dekstop installer https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingUbiquity22:44
UEFI-ChallengedI have not tried going back to version 16 just to see if it will finish the install....that's about all I haven't tried.22:44
Bashing-omUEFI-Challenged: Another thought. what is the graphic's set ? maybe try the 'nomodeset' boot parameter ?22:46
UEFI-Challengedtomreyn:  Yep...read that too.  /installer isn't being updated (probably does at the end...which never happens)...partman looks fine...syslog works right up to the hang...that's how I know it hung.22:46
UEFI-ChallengedBashing-om:  I haven't tried any boot params yet...I suppose that's next.22:47
UEFI-ChallengedI could use syslog to determine which process was last called then ps -ef to find the python install file and put some stops in it...but YUCK!22:48
Bashing-omUEFI-Challenged: Should not apply in 18.04 install, but when I installed 16.04 with a new generation nvidia card, come to find out after much anguish there was no support for the card at that time .22:49
