craigbass76I plug an iphone into my laptop, and I can see my photos, but I'm trying to rsync ALL of the photos off of it. I can't see where it's actually mounting though.00:24
jsieversCraigbass76: last line of the mount cmd output might be revealing00:36
leftyfbcraigbass76: it's not mounted in the traditional sense. I forget the protocol it's using00:40
leftyfbcraigbass76: best bet is to just use something like dropbox00:40

saiyanprincehi, can we use gnome-classic in ubuntu?00:40
leftyfbsaiyanprince: 16.04, yes. Not sure about 18.0400:41
saiyanprinceevery ubuntu release is called LTS, why?00:42
leftyfb!lts | saiyanprince00:43
ubottusaiyanprince: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions are supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Bionic (Bionic Beaver 18.04). Ubuntu !flavors may have different support durations, check their release notes for information.00:43
Tin_mannot every, just the Long Term Support versions.00:44
saiyanprince17.04 was also LTS00:44
saiyanprinceso every release is LTS00:44
Tin_manthe .04's are LTS every 5 years00:45
saiyanprincewhat about 17.10?00:45
saiyanprinceis it LTS too?00:45
leftyfbsaiyanprince: 17.04 was not LTS, neither was 17.10. Your comment about "every release is LTS" is false00:45

rud0lfany idea why single firefox session (with opened 1 simple page, not big, no fancy content) takes up to 1.5GB?00:50
rud0lfthis is ridoncoulous00:50
leftyfbrud0lf: close firefox completely. Make sure it's not running with ps. Then open it up. See how much memory it takes. Then try a site like google.com and see how much memory it takes. If that is all fine, then it might be a problem with the page/application you're opening00:54
leftyfbsaiyanprince: do you need help with something?00:54
rud0lfthank you kindly for answer00:55
Tin_mansaiyanprince, yes it will install on ubuntu.  I use MySql myself, but to each their own..00:56

MichaelCassonHey guys. I'm stuck and my google-fu has failed me. How do I update from 17.04 to current? It seems I can't get there from here, but I can't figure out how to update stepwise, either (17.04 -> 17.10 -> 18.04). Is there a way besides some dirty install or just wiping and installing clean?02:35
birmalphasomebody please helpl me02:36
birmalphai am strugling to understand how to set up SOCKS5 global settings on my lubuntu machine,02:37
guivercMichaelCasson, 17.04 is EOL, post EOL the archive.ubuntu.com gets moved to old-releases.ubuntu.com; why you should get errors for updates/upgrades/install software etc, hold on I'm looking (you can modify your sources to point there yourself, then upgrade to 17.10 then 18.04 LTS) - use a LTS (long-term-support) release if you want longer than 9 month supported life02:37
birmalphasomething similar to Proxifier on windows,, i cannot figure it out02:38
guivercthanks hggdh - was still opening a browser :)02:38
hggdhguiverc: yw :-)02:38
* hggdh goes to bed02:38
MichaelCassonYeah, I'm usually on top of it, but this machine has been neglected lately. I'll check that link, thanks!02:39
guivercMichaelCasson, i'd suggest backing up your important data, and re-install fresh (though if I knew your use I may give different advice) - stick to LTS releases too for longer life02:39

birmalphathis is all good stuff i been searching for days02:47
birmalphaand i havent seen none of this  none02:47
leftyfbbirmalpha: all of that were on the first page of google searching for "lxde global proxy"02:47
PLLunlockwhen using google; type the words you expect in your ANSWER.  Don't type questions.02:48
birmalphahow ?02:48
birmalphawhat you mean, exactly02:48
leftyfbPLLunlock: I find most results using words from the question, not the answer. Since a lot of people don't know the answer they're looking for.02:49
leftyfbbirmalpha: nevermind that. Good luck setting up your proxy settings02:49
birmalphai will look this stuff up02:49
PLLunlocka question is a start to find the terms of the answer02:49
birmalphathank you guys allot : )02:49
birmalphaok, leftyfb i kind of understand what you mean, i will try to rearange my search techniques02:51
leftyfbbirmalpha: the answers you're looking for should be in either of the 2 links I gave you02:51
MichaelCassonHmm... still no joy on the upgrade. Followed all the steps (again) changed my sources.list to old-releases, still get "An upgrade from 'zesty' to 'bionic' is not supported with this tool."02:52
leftyfbbirmalpha: btw, last I checked, https cannot be used through a transparent proxy02:53
MichaelCassonCould I upgrade if I burned a 17.10 disc and used that?02:53
leftyfbMichaelCasson: you don't upgrade from 17.04 to 18.04. You need to go to 17.10 first02:53
leftyfbMichaelCasson: you are better off just installing 18.04 from scratch and restoring from backup02:54
MichaelCassonI'm trying to get to 17.10, just not having any luck.02:54
leftyfbMichaelCasson: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades02:55
MichaelCassonYeah, I might just have to do that. I'm dual booting this machine and getting everything just right is a pain I was tryng to avoid.02:55
leftyfbMichaelCasson: update the sources.list to be 17.10(artful), then upgrade to 17.1002:55
leftyfbaccording to the above link02:56
MichaelCassonAh. I was using the one I was on, not the one I was trying to get to.02:56
leftyfbMichaelCasson: because you didn't read the instructions from the link provided02:56
MichaelCasson"To begin the upgrade, make sure you have a sources.list like the following, with CODENAME being your release, e.g. quantal."02:57

guivercMichaelCasson, what stage are you at?  if you `sudo apt update` do you get errors (any lines saying zesty still?)03:32
MichaelCassonI get an error:03:38

guivercplease pastebin if it's over a single line... artful hasn't yet been moved there; it's still in archives.ubuntu.com (but due EOL it'll go there first) - it was the zesty lines I was more interested in.03:39
guivercs;/go there first/go there very soon/03:40
MichaelCassonNo lines saying zesty.03:41
guiverc:)  (good); the lines saying artful should currently point @ archives.ubuntu.com  (I forget which day it'll be moved..); then sudo apt update; then try do-release-upgrade again03:42
MichaelCasson"Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)"03:43

guiverci've never had that error, but this https://askubuntu.com/questions/899009/sudo-apt-update-always-giving-clearsigned-file-isnt-valid-got-nosplit-does may have answers (proxy settings)03:45
MichaelCassonI'm not using any proxy, I've now created an apt.conf setting it as such. Same error. :/03:51
guiverci would then undo any changes made to apt.conf if they didn't help (or restore .bak etc) -- looking03:54
MichaelCassonIt didn't exist before, so I'll just delete it.03:57
MichaelCassonFound it. 'archive.ubuntu.com' not 'archives.ubuntu.com'04:01
MichaelCasson'do-release-upgrade' still trying to take me to zesty, though.04:04

MichaelCassonNo worries.04:05
MichaelCasson1291 packages can be upgraded. Do this or won't matter?04:05
guivercis your 17.04 up-to-date (if it wasn't latest, I'd upgrade to latest before release-upgrade to next version, but it may not be necessary)04:08
MichaelCassoncheck that by setting sources back to zesty?04:10
guivercif it was me; no i'd go ahead as download occurs first (you can always ^C out; autoclean;autoremove first... but your choice)04:12
guivercignore my second first04:12

dutchuss2016any ideas08:17
dutchuss2016this is for distro 18.04 btw08:18
guivercdutchuss2016, did you verify download (compare md5sum of iso etc before writing to dvd; I'd also suggest 'try ubuntu' on another machine to ensure it's not a bad dvd-write)08:20
linux8659hi ,does intel n3050 1.6Ghz-2.16Ghz is enough to run ubuntu 64 gnome ??thanks08:22
guiverc(or https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM)08:23
guiverclinux8659, yes, but I'd consider memory too08:24
linux8659guiverc it has 4gb but supports 8.but are you sure this processor is enough?08:25
guiverci've not used cpu; but i've run 18.04 on a c2d (core 2 duo); but gnome would not be my first choice...08:27
guivercfyi: the fsb speed of machine I'm assuming it's like is 667mhz08:28
linux8659guiverc yes08:28
linux8659mate maybe better?08:29
mousesZexaron: Personally I use munin for that, works really well08:29
mousesZexaron: http://mouses.xyz/munin/localdomain/localhost.localdomain/index.html08:29
guiverclinux8659, mate on 18.04 is GTK3+ so would not be my first choice either; mate was lighter before gtk+3 move so 16.04 mate is lighter.  If it were me I'd use XFCE or LXDE - you can always have both installed...08:30
mouseslinux8659: I agree with guiverc on this - I'd go LXDE of XFCE4 - mate/gnome is going to be a little heavy for that hardware08:30
linux8659so gnome might not run properly08:30
guiverceg. I have a t43 (thinkpad celeron single core) lubuntu 16.04; MATE & XFCE run fine on that machine with 1.5gb - I'd not try gnome on my t43; but yours should run it fine, it'd just not be my choice.08:31
mouseslinux8659: it'll run, but on that CPU i'd consider xbuntu or lubuntu08:31
guivercrun versus nice-to-run is very subjective.. yes it'll run, but will the experience be as good as .... (my point)08:32
linux8659thanks guys I understand (shame I don t like xfce...e08:32
mouseslinux8659: check LXDE then, you might like it more08:33
linux8659I need openvpn and torbrowser to run simustanously...08:33
guiverclinux8659, runnings apps like that at same time is more a factor of ram; more than cpu08:34
linux8659guiverc yes!08:34
boumacould anyone suggest what i might have done wrong? ive used dd to clone a linux live cd to a file, and then written it back with cdw, it wont boot. i can mount the file and examine it. some of the files give an io error. i believe the cd was undamaged and dd ran without error08:35
guiverclinux8659, here are the requirements https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements  -- which include graphics card requirement you didn't mention!08:40
guiverc(nor me - I didn't mention it either; a requirement of gnome)08:40
mousesbouma: I/O errors generally are an indication of a damaged file system/bad media :(08:40
linux8659yes but it say minimum dual core 2Ghz ,this is 1.6 base frequecy up to 2.16 ,wich counts ,1.6 or 2.16??08:42
guiverclinux8659, technically i believe it meets the requirement, however as stated it's just meeting it.   why I've suggested XFCE & LXDE - you'll have decide yourself if you think it's fast enough for you, not going to annoy you (checking your video card is 3d accelerated capable; 256mb ram minimum etc)08:47
linux8659guiverc THANKS08:48
guiverclinux8659, fyi: even MATE on 18.04 LTS may be faster than gnome (if you don't like xfce/lxde; MATE on 18.04 just isn't as light as older versions)08:49
linux8659would debian be faster since it comes with less packages installed ???08:53
guiverclinux8659, that is a off-topic question. we only support Ubuntu here.08:53

gogetadutchuss2016, ?10:16
dutchuss2016im having a seriousl issue with the machine i want to put ubuntu on10:17
gogetadutchuss2016, gotta be a bit more clear10:17
dutchuss2016burned the live cd correctly (i know this because my grandmas machine is currently running the live cd right now10:17
blackrootwhat exactly is the issue?10:18
dutchuss2016but im getting an error when i try to run the exact same disc on this machine10:19
dutchuss2016could not find/resolve named package element LMK 20170831 dspkginit-38110:20
dutchuss2016also noticed when this machine trys to load the bootloader the disc skips it and heads treaight to the ubuntu installer10:20
blackroothave you tried doing the install from a usb stick?10:21
dutchuss2016there is a difference in dvd drive ages between the machine thats currently running the file right now and this machine10:21
dutchuss2016this machine refused to load from usb that was my very first 5 attempts10:21
dutchuss2016bios ignores the fact that the usb fdd is there at all10:22
blackrootmaybe the stick is usb3 and your machine doesn't support it10:22
gogetai dont where thats would be a issue10:23
gogetausb3 stick should work on usb2 just fine10:24
blackrootnot all do10:24
blackrootand if the usb stick is of the verbatim brand, i've had major issues with those10:24
blackrootbut i'm just throwing out suggestions10:24
blackrootdutchuss2016: try taking out the dvd rom from your grandma's computer and put it in the machine you want to install ubuntu on. if same error occurs, it's not related to the install source10:25
gogetalooks like a acpi error10:27
gogetagoogle is your friend10:27
dutchuss2016i cant take out her dvd rom is soldered to the mobo10:27
gogetait says the error is annoying but harmless10:28
dutchuss2016google is useless i already went there it tried telling me it was my hard drive (which isnt the case cause i tried booting without the hard drive even connected and got the same issue10:28
gogetathe system should still bot10:28
dutchuss2016after that error ubuntu tries to boot and throws the same error and boots into a command line shell10:29
dutchuss2016instead of the full desktop gui10:29
gogetatry passing acpi=off on the live cd then10:29
dutchuss2016im kinda talking to you guys on the computer thats having issues10:30
dutchuss2016and getting some other tips in the ubuntu discord10:30
dutchuss2016in currently booted into windblows 1010:30
gogetadutchuss2016, do what i said10:32
gogetadutchuss2016, that gets rid of the error10:32
gogetadutchuss2016, its a acpi issue with your bios10:32
dutchuss2016so when ubuntu boots go to options f2 i believe acpi off?10:33
gogetadutchuss2016, i think its esc to get to the live cd bootloader then add acpi=off to the kernel line10:34
gogetadutchuss2016, have you ever passed a grub command before10:34
dutchuss2016never needed too every machine ive ever installed ubuntu on has just worked as expected10:35
dutchuss2016not been a complete bitch about it because bios10:35
gogetadutchuss2016, if you machine has a bios update that may also fix it10:35
dutchuss2016haha your funny10:35
dutchuss2016this machine bios update10:36
dutchuss2016considering ats an am3+ mobo that stopped manufacture 4 years ago and is the last revision im positive its on the last version of the bios10:36
gogetadutchuss2016, well acpi=off should get rid of the error and boot10:37
dutchuss2016press escape at what point duing the boot to be able to set that flag?10:39
gogetadutchuss2016, one you have a working install you can add it to your d40-custom to make it a permant option10:40
gogetadutchuss2016, there should be like a 10 second windows after your pc starts and the live cd starts loading10:40
gogetadutchuss2016, normaly you see the ubuntu logo10:41
gogetabefore the animated logo10:41
dutchuss2016so pretty much hit escape as soon as my screen turns that fugly shade of purple10:42
gogetadutchuss2016, it will say start ubuntu or install ubuntu and other options10:42
gogetadutchuss2016, yea10:42
EriC^^dutchuss2016: are you using uefi mode?10:43
dutchuss2016my win 10 boots uefi10:43
gogetaEriC^^, he need to start with acpi=off didnt think efi came into play10:44
EriC^^dutchuss2016: when you boot the live usb you should get a menu with grub at the top, press "e" over try ubuntu and add what you want to the line that says linux /boot/vmlinuz10:44
dutchuss2016on this machine i dont get the grub window thats what ive been trying to say10:45
dutchuss2016it skips that and goes straight to the fugly purple shit10:45
EriC^^why are you using acpi=off? you've got to pay attention to the temps, it might not control the fans anymore10:45
gogetadutchuss2016, doing what i said will show it10:45
gogetaEriC^^, bios conflict10:45
EriC^^dutchuss2016: hold shift to get grub10:45
EriC^^dutchuss2016: i think it's not booting the live usb then..10:45
EriC^^how'd you make the live usb?10:46
dutchuss2016live dvd10:46
gogetaEriC^^, live cd is working on another machine10:46
gogetaEriC^^, he gets a acpi error then drops to bash10:46
dutchuss2016and how else do ya think i made it i put a dvd in and told windows to burn the iso at 1x speed (the disc works in my grandmas machine but not mine10:46
EriC^^try holding shift see if you get grub, esc might work if shift doesnt10:47
cukierI just connected a hard drive to my computer and formatted it via gparted. If I mount it via `Files` file manager, I need root permission to add files in there. How do I make it so I can edit files by default?10:47
EriC^^cukier: what filesystem did you format it?10:47
EriC^^cukier: type "sudo chown $USER: -R /mountpoint"10:48
EriC^^cukier: /mountpoint is possibly /media/$USER/something .. get it from the output of "df"10:48
dutchuss2016ill be back in 10 mins if i fail at getting into the live cd and 15 if i succeed10:48
cukierThank you!10:49
EriC^^cukier: no problem10:49
dutchuss2016for the acpi off method is there anything i have to type?10:50
dutchuss2016or is it a menu i just toggle?10:50
EriC^^dutchuss2016: you add acpi=off in the kernel line instead of quiet splash then press f10 to boot10:50
dutchuss2016so pressing esc instead of tab will give me a sudo terminal type window10:51
gogetadutchuss2016, if it works and you pc does not melt then you ccan make it a perment option post install10:51
dutchuss2016i have a cooler master hyper evo 212 with a custom dial nob fan that overrides the board anyways10:52
gogetadutchuss2016, your golden then10:52
dutchuss2016ill try holding shift during the cd load and if that fails ill rape the escape key untill i get ty type acpi off10:53
dutchuss2016ill be back shortly with either good news or "other news"10:54
ZexaronI'm troubleshooting SSDs and I would like to get some verbose/debug messaging visible if possible a constant console opened with them displaying in real time11:05
Zexaronlike the verbose output from boot11:06
Zexaronbut it would continue when in desktop somehow11:06
ZexaronI want only messages about filesystem and sata devices, no other stuff11:06
ZexaronI installed a bunch of logger apps11:06

qwebirc66236Hi, I'm new to IRC. I'm stuck upgrading to 18.04 I've just filed a question on Launchpad. https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/67297711:07
Zexaronbut not sure if it outputs kernel stuff about sata messages11:07
qwebirc66236My machine has text on the screen after attempting to boot. I'm not sure what to do next.11:07
qwebirc66236I've left the text there, and hoping for some live support.11:07
EriC^^qwebirc66236: what text does it have11:09
qwebirc66236hi Eric, the last line on the screen says: [OK] Started GNOME Display Manager. Dispatcher Service....before the pop link was shut down....11:10
EriC^^qwebirc66236: try booting a live usb to troubleshoot11:11
qwebirc66236The ubuntu I was installing was on a usb itself.11:11
qwebirc66236I run ubuntu from usb day to day11:11
qwebirc66236should I turn it off and see what it does next?11:12
qwebirc66236I'm thinking I should just install 18.04 on a new usb and then see if I can recover my files from my current usb11:12
EriC^^qwebirc66236: that'd work11:13
qwebirc66236is there anything I can do which can help then next unfortunate that tries to upgrade to 18.04?11:13
EriC^^fwiw usb installations have some issues, lots of corrupted filesystems and whatnot11:14
EriC^^qwebirc66236: i dont think so11:14
qwebirc66236ok, so it's just a known problem? I'll not waste any more time then. Thanks a lot for giving me an immediate response Eric. Have a good Sunday.11:14
qwebirc66236thanks, bye11:15
EriC^^qwebirc66236: no problem, bye11:15
EriC^^yeah usb's cant take the constant small writes and stuff from an installed os, it's better to use different media11:15
EriC^^they die way quicker11:15
qwebirc66236what's a better way to have a temporary medium to run ubuntu on a windows machine?11:16
qwebirc66236I don't want to install anything on this machine, it's a work machine.11:16
BluesKajHey folks11:17
qwebirc66236I have been able to use a usb really well. Inobtrusive. I buy a new one every couple of years.11:17
dutchuss2016so im back with some new developments11:19
dutchuss2016acpi offgot a little further gave me the ubuntu logo with some more errors then eventually blackscreened and stopped11:20
=== kostkon_ is now known as kostkon
EriC^^qwebirc66236: hmm, maybe a small ssd with usb to sata cable? they're so lightweight and super fast11:22
dutchuss2016is there somewhere you guys would feel comfortable opening images (i took pictures of the screens of test that i got11:22
EriC^^qwebirc66236: i think the problem you have isnt related to the usb, seems like some package related to fs mounting and other tools didnt install so possibly that, you could use a live usb to decrypt mount and chroot and try to fix apt if you want to get to the bottom of it11:22
EriC^^dutchuss2016: imgur.com11:23
qwebirc66236EricC^^: thanks, I'll do that to get the files back. I was just wondering what advice you'd give to me. What should I use instead of a usb stick?11:23
dutchuss2016then black screen and dvd drive stopped reading dvd (stayed that way for 3 mins where i called it and rebooted back into windblows11:27
EriC^^qwebirc66236: maybe some portable external ssd?11:29
EriC^^you could use usb3.0 that's a 5gigabit limit vs sata's 6gigabit, so you'd still be able to get 600+MB/s11:30
EriC^^qwebirc66236: the ssd's are incredibly lightweight, just more bulky than a usb11:30
qwebirc66236EricC^^: thanks, I'll look for that11:32
dutchuss2016any one got anything on my images what else i can try11:33
ledenidutchuss2016: you using internal or external (usb) sound card?11:36
qwebirc66236EricC^^: Do you mind helping me still? I've just booted another USB ubuntu installation of 16.04. It says it doesn't recognize the file system of my current USB. I haven't run that 16.04 installation for a while, and I'm updating it right now. I'll try my current USB stick again when the updates have run through.11:37
jeremy31dutchuss2016, add module_blacklist=snd_hda_intel,r8169   to grub11:38
tomreynjeremy31: i guess dutchuss2016 is going to need an internet connection.11:39
dutchuss2016what you mean tom11:39
jeremy31tomreyn, they could skip using r8169 on the command11:40
tomreyndutchuss2016: r8169 is a driver for your ethernet11:40
tomreynbut actually you might get away with an offline installation.11:41
tomreynbut i think those two modules failing are still a result of the cdrom not working well on this drive11:41
dutchuss2016im not even trying to install im trying to get into the live desktop11:41
tomreynor dvd rather11:41
jeremy31tomreyn, I think dutchuss2016 said that the DVD worked in a different computer11:42
tomreyndutchuss2016: you mentioned earlier that you were initially trying to boot off a usb storage, but you said you were using the "usb-fdd" option for this. fdd stands for floppy disk drive, so a usb connected floppy drive.11:42
dutchuss2016aye that it did11:42
dutchuss2016worked flawlessly in a seprate machine11:42
R13oseI never used apt-fast, how is that faster than apt-get?11:43
tomreynjeremy31: optical media will often work well on the drive they were burnt on but not on other drives.11:43
taylanI'm on the LTS release and the dovecot package seems somewhat broken.  it won't create the dovecot group and the dovenul user automatically, aboring the apt-get install process11:43
taylanis this a known problem?11:43
dutchuss2016didnt have to do any acip off shit didnt have to do anything just popped it in and told the computer to boot from it and 2 mins later i was looking at a shiny ubunty disktop11:43
tomreynjeremy31: so is there no other usb boot option than usb-fdd on this computer?11:43
jeremy31tomreyn, I don't know11:44
tomreynjeremy31: sorry, didnt mean to ask you ;)11:44
dutchuss2016its the exact opposite in my case the disc is failing in the drive it was burned with but working flawlessly with a drive it wasnt burned with11:44
tomreyndutchuss2016: so is there no other usb boot option than usb-fdd on this computer?11:45
ZexaronHi, is there a one-big command in linux do make myself root, I'm doing SSD/Sata device/port/Controller troubleshooting, im tired of text file persmissions and having to type passwoerd in11:45
dutchuss2016usb fdd usb cd usb hdd none worked11:45
Zexaroneverything I do, open, type, run, would be super-root11:45
taylanZexaron: "su -"11:45
Zexaronthanks a lot11:45
blscoeholy cow11:45
taylanZexaron: that will log you in as root11:45
Zexarontylan: su what? what to do with that11:45
dutchuss2016and rufus borked my usb drive (theres a 2 mb fat partition that i cant delet right in the middle of it)11:45
tomreyndutchuss2016: hmm, that's weird indeed. but in my exoperience optical media is just unreliable, i try to prevent them whenever possible.11:45
taylanZexaron: I assumed you're in a shell.  that's a command you would execute in a shell to re-login as root.11:46
Zexarontaylan: oh I have to relogin11:46
ZexaronI'll try11:46
taylanZexaron: or did you want your whole desktop environment to be root?11:46
taylanZexaron: no, that command would do that, in the shell, but only in the shell11:47
dutchuss2016rufus borked my usb drive anyways11:47
tomreyndutchuss2016: so your other computer which still works runs which OS? (do you have another linux system?)11:47
dutchuss2016the other computer that booted the cd fine is a windows 10 machine11:47
tomreyndutchuss2016: you should be able to delete the fat partition using windows disk management11:48
dutchuss2016and needs to stay that way11:48
dutchuss2016i tried that11:48
dutchuss2016right clicking the fat partition all options are greyed out11:48
dutchuss2016and if i try to format it into exfat or ntfs (fat32 isnt even an option ) windows just fails to format it11:49
tomreyndutchuss2016: hmm, well, i'm not good at helping with windows, especially not on #ubuntu ;) so i'm afraid i can't help there unless you'll boot the windows computer from the optical ubuntu image.11:49
dutchuss2016thats the problem im currently on the machine thats failing to do just that11:50
Zexarontaylan: I want every single thing as full-root no questions asked kernel level access11:50
tomreyndutchuss2016: we can try focussing on getting a better idea why the system you're trying to install ubuntu on isnt booting properly, if you prefer11:50
Zexarontaylan: like if I'm the kernel11:50
dutchuss2016thats what im trying to do11:50
BluesKajdutchuss2016, try gparted live media, it'll run as an OS off usb or cd, and you'll be able to format your partition with it11:51
dutchuss2016i posted some imijur links to some post acpi =off images above i can repost if needed11:51
dutchuss2016i dont want to format my hdd untill i know that ununtu will work11:52
tomreyndutchuss2016: i'Ve seen the three images you posted to imgur.com. if you press escape by the time the screen which says "Ubuntu 18.04" (with those dots) appears, you can get to see more output11:52
dutchuss2016if i format my hdd prior to knowing that ubuntu works how am i supposed to get back into winodows to keep troubleshooting11:53
tomreyndutchuss2016: i dont think anyone suggested formatting your hdd?11:53
Zexarontaylan: I want everything, shell and desktop, when I open dolphin, I want it to run as root, when I open CAJA, root, root, I need to OPEN ALL FILES without the stupid permissions11:53
* BluesKaj shrugs ,you can lead a horse to water .........11:54
taylanZexaron: see if the login screen lets you log in as root.  if not, I don't know.11:54
dutchuss2016do you guys want me to make a ficeo of the entire boot process11:55
Zexaronareas like this is where one would expect linux to differ from other OS, my assumptions were wrong meh11:55
BluesKaj!gparted | dutchuss201611:55
ubottudutchuss2016: gparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php11:55
Zexaronhow hard is to make a command "sudo give-me-full-root now"11:55
ZexaronI don't know, i've been beating it for hours and im dealing with kindergarden basic stuff like finding a PID to a process, I maybe should take a break or another distro11:56
BluesKajZexaron, sudo su11:56
Zexaronwill that run dolphin as root ?11:57
Zexaronsudo dolphin doesn't work11:57
ZexaronOh I forgot to mention this is Linx Mint mate11:57
tomreyndutchuss2016: i think the more promising approach is to try to make the usb drive you have work again, which is why i think BluesKaj is suggesting to boot your computer off a gparted-live iso (written to optical media).11:57
BluesKajyou don't run dolphin as root you run root from dolphin11:58

ubottuZexaron: The Ubuntu channels can only provide support for Ubuntu and its official flavors, since other distributions and derivatives have repository and software changes.

dutchuss2016wait a sec11:58
R13oseAny thoughts on my question?11:58
tomreyndutchuss2016: but if you prefer trying to debug the ubuntu installer boot you could press escape as the "Ubuntu 18.04" screen appears, then take another photo.11:59
dutchuss2016usb 3 is the blue ports correct11:59
jeremy31dutchuss2016 yes11:59
dutchuss2016i get usb 3 and usb 2 mixed up these days11:59
dutchuss2016will a ubuntu live usb boot on a usb 3 port?11:59
jeremy31dutchuss2016 I think it should12:00
ducassedutchuss2016: yes12:00
R13osedutchuss2016: why not?12:00
dutchuss2016well thats what ive been attempting with is usb 3 and my bos completly ignore it12:00
tomreyndutchuss2016: yes, usb3 is blue, and yes, ubuntu can boot fine off it. the question is rather whether your bios can do so, too.12:00
dutchuss2016so do i really need to worry about the usb drive being split into 3 partitions inorder for a live cd to wotk on it?12:01
R13osedutchuss2016: is your boot list able to see the USB key?12:01
dutchuss2016that 2 mb partition is right in the middle12:01
tomreyndutchuss2016: not strictly, you can just overwrite it.12:01
tomreyndutchuss2016: try using etcher.io (this is a website, too) to write the image to the usb. it's usually the least painful and most reliable tool in my expierence.12:02
dutchuss2016what im saying is if i try a live usb on say partition 3 of my usb stick (12 gb available out of the full 16) will usb 2 see the partition with the boot instructions and boot from it12:02
dutchuss2016if this mobo cant boot from usb 2 then i need to throw my computer out a window12:03
tomreyndutchuss2016: this partition is just a record in your partition table. there are software which will write isos to usb storages and will just ignore the partition table on the usb storage, creating a new one.12:04
R13osedutchuss2016: what is your ultimate goal?12:04
mousestomreyn: ++++ re etcher.io, it's really the only boot image creation tool i've used that 'just always works'12:05
tomreynR13ose: installing ubuntu 18.04 on a computer which has trouble booting off an 18.04 optical media (ethernet and audio drivers fail to initialize). the same optical media seems to work ok on another computer.12:06
dutchuss2016rufus didnt like me plugging my usb stick in while it was running....12:06
tomreyndutchuss2016: then dont use rufu12:06
BluesKajp[lug it in before you run rufus12:07
dutchuss2016no it wasnt rugfus it was indows complaing that a 2 mb partition is too small to even be accessed12:07
dutchuss2016but therettically i shouldnt have to worry about that12:08
dutchuss2016jesus fucking christ rurfus i knwo what formatting does im not a fucking retard12:09

dutchuss2016windows is stoopid12:11
dutchuss2016it assigned my dvd drives drive letter to my usb sticks 3 partitions when it got plugged in12:12
dutchuss2016ok so rufus fixed my usb drive that it broke12:14
dutchuss2016i have the full 16 gb in a contiguous partition again12:14
dutchuss2016now im gonna try to make the usb media for the 17th time12:14

dutchuss2016will usb also potentally fix the aspi issues?12:16
ledenidutchuss2016: no12:16
dutchuss2016so if im even able to boot i still havce to do acpi off?12:16
ledenidutchuss2016: frist boot normally12:17
tomreyndutchuss2016: do you mean aspi (advanced scsi programming interface) or acpi (advanced configuration and power interface)?12:18
dutchuss2016the origional issue was an ACPI error upon live cd load12:19
dutchuss2016ACPI EXCEPTION12:19
dutchuss2016i have a picture of it plastered on my screen if you want it12:19
qwebirc66236EricC^^: OK. I'm booted up on the 16.04 usb. Fully updated now. I've inserted the other usb which doesn't boot properly. I think I've been able to unlock that volume. It says doesn't recognize file system. I've opened GParted. /dev/sdc5 shows crypt-luks.12:20
ledenidutchuss2016: by the way how old system is that you try to install ubuntu 18.04 and configuration ?12:21

tomreyndutchuss2016: i suggest you make sure you have the latest bios installed before you try to install ubuntu, replacing windows.12:35
tomreynthis may overcome those acpi issues, if any (i haven't seen any screenshot indicating acpi issues specifically)12:37

petroI have firefox feezes every day :)12:45
ryzokukenpetro: hopefully not :P12:45
ryzokukenI was planning to install Ubuntu back after so many days.12:46
ryzokukenI remember using 16.04 and it was pretty straightforward to get optimus running.12:46
petroOh?  If I was starting fresh, I'd probably give Debian or Fedora a try12:46
petrodevs for Ubuntu don't care any more....12:46
ryzokukenI tried ubuntu 18.04 "a little", and it didn't work well.12:46
ryzokukenpredmijat: right now, all I want is for optimus to either work out of the box or an easy way to make it work12:47
petroand fascists on the Ubuntu forums will delete your account ...I guess they are told to12:47

sgibbsI use 18.04.1 and it works great for me. Not a single freeze or crash12:48
dutchuss2016just an fyi this is a gaming rig im switching to linux because steam now finally is supporting wine nativly in their linux client as of 4 days ago12:48
ryzokukenI loved Ubuntu back in the day, want to know if it is still the best for optimus.12:48
tomreynHamilton: what are "os-files"?12:48
dutchuss2016and i cant stand how much of a resource hog windows is12:48

ryzokukenwhy isn't it working OOTB?12:50
petrodutchuss2016, do you game in ubuntu?12:50
ryzokukenis it something specific to Xubuntu and will get fixed when I try, say, GNOME3?12:50
petroubuntu crashes too often for me to game :(12:50
petroI'd have to switch to windows12:50
dutchuss2016not untill now too difficult with all of my games being steam windows games (minus a few notible titles like factorio)12:51
tomreynHamilton: well, it could be normal. but without details it's hard to tell.12:51
petroryzokuken, laptop?12:51
petromaybe that's why it doesnt' crash for you...you're using a laptop12:51
tomreynHamilton: if you want to examine this more closely, logs are at /var/log/apt/term.log12:51
Hamiltonok thanks. It happened two times. I aksed becuase I don't remember installing them as they sounded weird12:52
petroI think it works better with an nvidia card?12:53
dutchuss2016@Bios says i have the latest bios version F212:53
tomreynpetro: ubuntu doesn't always work well out of the box with every combination of hardware and firmware. i.e. there are a couple such combinations, one of which you seem to have there, where it doesn't work well. especially those where only proprietary drivers and NDA restricted documentation are made available by the chipset producing companies.12:54
dutchuss2016can we like get back to my ubuntu problem and not be assuming that i dont know how to build and update a computer (which i do know how to do i do it for a living)12:54

dutchuss2016yea which i have12:59
tomreynyes, looks like it.13:01
dutchuss2016so since my bios checks out and ubunto still seems to hate me any other ideas13:02
tomreynyou could still do what i suggested an hour ago, get a screenshot of the boot screen after pressing escape.13:03
dutchuss2016doesent come up with text pressing any key as soon as m screen turns puke purple brings up the ubuntu installers language selection13:04
tomreynyou could also try booting with acpi=off and nomodeset13:04
dutchuss2016i obviously slect engrish13:04
tomreynthat's after language selection13:04
tomreynpress escape after language selection13:05
dutchuss2016then it asks me what i want to do and shows options on the f2 f3 f4 f5 and f6 keys13:05
dutchuss2016pressing f6 gives me the option to enable ACPI=off13:05
tomreynselect acpi=off from, i think f6, menu13:05
dutchuss2016then i tell it after enabling that to try ubuntu before installing (because i dont wanna brick my only working os)13:06
dutchuss2016then you get the 3 sses i sent about an hour and a half ago13:06
dutchuss2016then black screen and halt13:06
tomreynthen you need nomodeset, too13:07
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter13:07
tomreynand i dont like your passive aggressiveness, so i'll stop here13:07
dutchuss2016could my nvidia card be causing that13:07
dutchuss2016i dont think my bord has onboard but i could try it13:08

ElliriaHey there, if I want to back up Getting Things GNOME! would I just back up the ~/.local/share/gtg/ directory or should I also back up the ~/.config/gtg/ directory?13:32
Ridley5im connected to the first Wifi adapter (Zydas) ans the second one i want to use it like a hotspot13:32
Ridley5i see the hotspot with my phone but no internet13:32
blackflowRidley5: look into this, especially decide whether you want to bridge or NAT:  https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/software_access_point#Network_configuration13:33
blackflowRidley5: unfortunately I don't know if NetworkManager does all that by itself, if it's configurable through the UI, or if you have to dig into config files and set up hostapd.13:34
blackflowat any rate, hostapd for wifi hotspot (your device _must_ support AP, not all do), network config (bridge or NAT).13:34
Ridley5i wanna read that, thak you blackflow :)13:34

Ridley5i see it with my S7 jeremy31 but i cant access internet13:36

ledeniRidley5: if you using ubuntu 18.04 use 'nm-connecton-editor'13:37
jeremy31It looks like only one network device connected to the internet in your pastebin13:38
Ridley5yes the second adapter is used like as hotspot, but not getting internet from the first one13:39
jeremy31Ridley5 Might need something like https://github.com/oblique/create_ap13:40
Ridley5i read that.. thank you13:41
jeremy31Ridley5 I used it before with a single wifi adapter to act similar to a hotspot and I could connect with my Android phone, it would be even faster using 2 wifi cards13:42

Sven_vBand convert it to UTC or a unix timestamp if possible :)14:29
RonaldsMazitisI gave You the log14:29
Sven_vByeah, I can see the mouse being added 86583 seconds after last boot14:29
Sven_vBit wasn't removed since then14:30
Sven_vBdoes it still show up in xinput --list?14:30

Sven_vBit should report motion as well as buttons14:34
RonaldsMazitisno activity14:35
Sven_vBeven though you moved it, I assume. =)14:35
RonaldsMazitisthe light is on (on mouse)14:35
Sven_vBthat probably only means it has power. doesn't say anything about whether the data cabels are ok.14:36

Sven_vBI'll translate the times to that :)14:51
Sven_vBso the mouse appeared at 16:15:29, power supply changed at 16:17:57. I've no idea though, how that would relate as long as the mouse is still visible in xinput.14:56
Sven_vBcan you see any anomalous syslog messages around these times?14:58
RonaldsMazitisI don't have systlog15:04
RonaldsMazitisfor some reason I don't have syslog.log only syslog1 etc15:04
Sven_vBthere should be no .log on syslog. it's full name is /var/log/syslog15:06

jamie1hey, I'm curious if anyone has any solution for running ubuntu on a ryzen 2000 series with a b350 board15:09
jamie1from what I've found on Google no one is having much luck even booting15:10
wadHey folks. Upgrading my web server from 16.04 to 18.04. I've got several issues so far, but the first one is: "This version of the GNU libc requires kernel version 3.2 or later.  Please upgrade your kernel before installing glibc."15:10
RonaldsMazitisSven_vB: thats about it, I filtered some stuff out15:10
wadI tried googling it, but didn't see much useful stuff. Should I just google "upgrade ubuntu kernel" and do that stuff? Seems like the kernel should have upgraded itself while I did the release upgrade....15:11
wadCurrently it's "Linux 2.6.32-042stab127.2"15:12
gogetadid i rear that correctly15:13
wadIs this an ancient kernel?15:14

gogetai means 4 serise15:16
ducassewad: you're probably running on openvz, talk to your provider about upgrading15:16
Sven_vBRonaldsMazitis, ok, that looks perfectly normal. no idea why your mouse would stop working. does it happen with other USB pointer devices as well?15:16
wadAh, okay....15:17
gogetathats insanly out of date15:17

* wad reads up15:21
ducassejamie1: wad: no, he can't upgrade the kernel15:21
jamie1why not?15:21
wadMaybe because it's a VM?15:21
ducassejamie1: openvz uses a kernel provided by the host15:22
wadI'm logging into my cloud provider now, maybe they have a thingy to upgrade?15:22
jamie1you have to ask your cloud provider at that point15:22
jamie1some will allow you to do it yourself but unless you pay for the whole server space they usually don't15:23
ducassewad: or switch to a provider where you control the kernel yourself15:23
wadI might just move it over to AWS.15:23
jamie1paperspace is what I use15:23
Sven_vBRonaldsMazitis, no idea then. let's hope someone else can help.15:25
adamretterI just ran a dist-upgrade on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (4.15.0-23-generic) and now when it tries to boot 4.15.0-33-generic, I get the error - VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0). I can still manually choose the 4.15.0-23-generic option from the Grub menu and boot that OK. Any ideas why the latest kernel doesn't boot the fs, I remember seeing something about chain-loading Grub2. Maybe that broke it?15:50
ioriaadamretter, run df -h and see if root is full15:53
ioriaadamretter, or /boot15:54
adamretterioria: I have 78GB free on /. I don't have a seperate /boot partition15:55
ioriaadamretter,  dpkg -l | grep linux-image | pastebinit15:56
adamretterioria: https://pastebin.com/D8WYi0S915:57
ioriaadamretter,  can you run sudo update-grub without errors ?15:59
adamretterioria: I am a bit nervous to try, as it seems that that was what caused this issue - when it wanted to chainloan grub v2 from grub v1 for the new kernel15:59
ioriaadamretter,  i see16:00
adamretterioria: is there a way I can examine the Grub entries to see what is different with the latest kernel version?16:01
EriC^^adamretter: cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg16:02
adamretterEriC^^: thanks16:06
adamretterioria: is there a way to safely do this, so that if update-grub causes an error I don't hose my system?16:06
ioriaadamretter,  sy, was afk,  i don't think you can simulate nupdate-grub , but not sure16:08
ioriaadamretter,  check the vmlinuz link in /16:10

adamretterioria: I feel it has to be something to do with the grub1 to grub2 chainloading that was installed16:11
ioriaadamretter, why did you use both ?16:12
Menzador(if update-grub causes an error, your system doesn't get hosed unless it maliciously writes data someplace it shouldn't, and you can use any GRUB-laden environment to launch it with a few extra commands)16:13
ioriaadamretter, dpkg -l | grep grub | pastebinit16:13
adamretterioria: I didn't. apt-get dist-upgrade told me it was upgrading to Grub2 and that it was best to do it as two parts, so it would chainload Grub2 from Grub1 and after rebooting, if that worked, that I should run `sudo upgrade-from-grub-legacy` to remove Grub 1. This is standard Ubuntu 18 stuff - nothing special I have done16:13
ioriaadamretter, dpkg -l | grep grub | pastebinit    and are you on bionic or xenial ?16:14

rander2I study programming on book, and after I go to the laptop, but the screen is locked17:43

adamrettercompdoc: I dont' use virtmanager17:44
rander2lotuspsychje, yes , the screensaver lock the screen to login17:44
adamretterioria: so you suggest just using `rm` to clean up those files?17:44
tomreynLady_Aly: do you use suspend, does this only happen after you used suspend?17:44
Lady_Alycompdoc:  ok I can understand that, but sometimes it happens when I'm not streaming.  Just doing something like playing a simple game like mahjongg (the one that comes with 18.04)17:45

Lady_Alybut most often it happens when I'm trying to do a couple of things at once17:46
rander2ok I found, the default time was 5min, I changed it to 30min17:46
rander2thx all17:46
Lady_AlyI don't usually use suspend, unless it's been activated to run in the background17:46

ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX17:47

lotuspsychjerander2: be carefull with vnc, consider a more safer protocol for remote manage17:49
littlejohnnyducasse, do you mean inside fstab?  because its too late for that, pc wont boot, so im asking for what to put in grub to bypass it. would 'nofail' work if i put it inside grub?17:49
littlejohnnyducasse, when i press 'e' in grub on the 'Ubuntu' i dont see the entry there17:49
ioriaadamretter,  i don't think there's another way17:49
ducasselittlejohnny: no, it needs to be in fstab17:50
rander2lotuspsychje, for example ? I have another pc more powerfull running debian, and I want have the desktop other ssh17:50
ducasselittlejohnny: boot in recovery mode, add it from there17:50
rander2it's in the same private lan17:51
lotuspsychjerander2: you want to ssh, or ssh X?17:51
ioriaadamretter,  you can run  sudo dpkg --configure -a after, to check if it's all good17:51
littlejohnnyducasse, is there no other way i can bypass this failure without entering passwords in recovery ?17:51

littlejohnnyducasse, after entering recovery and mounting root as rw, then editing fstab, it doesnt seem like it asks for root password.17:59

WiseMonkthe newest version of standart ubuntu20:29
WiseMonkhow can I verify if dd copied everything correctly?20:30
tomreynso you can still boot the computer from the external installer disk?20:30
WiseMonki can also use Ubuntu life20:30
tomreynwhen you boot the installer, there is a "media test" option on the grub menu20:31
WiseMonkok, let me try20:31
tomreynit should help you verify that the image was written properly and can be used safely.20:31
WiseMonkyou mean the "check disk for defects"?20:32
tomreynsorry, i forgot the exact title there20:32
WiseMonkok it says "check finish, errors found in 1 file20:33
WiseMonkso I should dd again right?20:33
tomreyneither dd, then sync, then syanc again, then eject it, or use some other utility which uses a different approach for creating the bootable storage. such as https://etcher.io20:34
Iarlaledeni: Thanks for your help. Still no sign of it in Network Manager. Should I try a reboot?20:35
tomreyneither way, be sure to 'dmesg -w'  while preparing the bootable storage to ensure there are no errors.20:35
IarlaI could also try a live CD to make sure it works and then if so, do a fresh install.20:35
WiseMonkok , thanks so far, how exactly do I sync after dd is done?20:38
tomreynWiseMonk: you run 'sync' on a terminal20:39
WiseMonksame syntax as dd?20:39
tomreynyou just run dd as before, then run the separate 'sync' command without any options20:40
tomreynthere's is also an option to dd which triggers the sync, but i'd need to look it up.20:40
Skyboto/ all.20:41
ledeniIarla: try sudo apt-get install linux-libc-dev libc6-dev linux-headers-generic linux-headers20:41
tomreynWiseMonk: i need to leave it there, got to go for a while. others will help here if you'll repeat the situation and ask a question.20:41
WiseMonkok, thank you very much :)20:42
ledeniIarla: and reboot20:42
Iarlaledeni: E: Package 'linux-headers' has no installation candidate20:43
Iarla"You should explicitly select one to install"20:43
Iarlado I just match my current kernel version?20:43
ledeniIarla: yes20:44
imican you please recommend a graphical text file (source code and/or xml) diffing tool? thank you in advance?20:44
the-noobimi: beyond compare (free for 30 days only)20:48
imiI would be much more happy with free (as in free speech) software20:48
the-noobthe suggestion fits well20:50
the-noobbecause that free speech thing is just bullshit20:51
the-noobtry posting some non gender-neutral opinion on twitter if you don't believe me20:51
Tin_manimi might check here, cause I didn't >>https://alternativeto.net/software/beyond-compare/20:51
hggdhthe-noob: (1) please keep on topic; (2) mind your language20:53
Iarlaledeni: success! Thanks to your hard work :)20:53
the-noobso much for your free speech imi20:53
ledeniIarla YES20:53
hggdhthe-noob: this channel has rules. Just follow them20:54
the-noobon topic then... I've used tasksel to uninstall ubuntu-desktop as I was having some problems20:54
the-noobwith the intent of reinstalling them20:54
the-noobnow I don't have even network (desktop)20:54
ledeniIarla great✌🏼20:55
the-noobifconfig -a doesn't list eth020:55
the-noobbut I do have one20:55
SimonNLenabled in bios the-noob ?20:56
Iarlaledeni: :D There are a lot of delicate configurations on this machine so you've saved me a serious headache. Thank you again.20:57
SimonNLfirst thing that came up ^20:57
the-noobSimonNL: afaik yes, nothing changed.. all I did was use tasksel to uninstall ubuntu-desktop and that removed a lot... I rebooted and now no eth020:57
the-noobifconfig -a lists enp4s0 and lo20:58
ledeniIarla you are welcome20:58
SimonNL^ there is your ethernet20:58
SimonNLI think systemd does that for ya20:59
the-noobnow I hate this systemd dude20:59
the-noobok, how do I get my network back ?20:59
Ben64reinstall ubuntu21:00
the-noobwhile I've considered that ... that's so welcome to windows 9821:00
Ben64well you borked it pretty good by removing everything21:00
Tin_manif i may ask, why did you remove the desktop? in a gui OS normally you kinda want the desktop.21:02
hggdhthe-noob: you want KDE or standard Ubuntu (Gnome, on 18.04)?21:02
rfmthe-noob, you can just configure the enp4so.  trouble is it's hard to guess how much you have left after uninstallting the desktop.  if NetworkManager is still there, nmcli is probably your best bet...21:02
the-noobrfm: nmcli: command not found :(21:03
the-noobTin_man: oh boi. so I've upgraded from 16.04 today and ended up in console, no gui21:04
the-noobhggdh: at this point I'm happy with either (I was on KDE)21:04
the-noobI've tried installing `kubuntu-desktop` but hit a lot of dependency issues21:05
hggdhthe-noob: first, sudo apt update; then sudo apt install --reinstall kubuntu-desktop21:05
the-noobwon't work, no network21:05
the-noobin trying to fix the dependency  issues I thought 'gee... I'll remove the GUI parts, leave it as a server and install after'21:06
Tin_manhow since you basically only have your core OS, it might be better to go with a new install, and use your up-to-date backup.21:06
the-noobso that's why I used `tasksel -r ubuntu-desktop` but looks like it did more...21:07
the-noobyeah, that up to date backup... any minute now21:07
SimonNLifconfig - configure a network interface       might be an option21:07
SimonNLman ifconfig21:07
the-noobwill a recovery cd solve anything?21:11
SimonNLis it worth it21:11
Tin_manI never had a recovery CD on linux. I just keep my personal files backed up, and re-install, it is the reconfiguring all the personal settings,and programs that's a pain.21:13
the-noobTin_man: indeed, I am able to do a clean install but reconfiguring and all that...21:14
Tin_manbut still easier than windows, especially MySql.21:14
Tin_mandepends on your time already invested in recovery, and how much time it will take to get back up and running.21:15
the-noobI'll probably timebox it21:16
the-nooblike give it another hour of try this and that21:16
the-noobafter just reinstall21:16
rfmthe-noob, I'd read about "Temporary IP address assigment" in https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/network-configuration.html.en21:17
Tin_manprobably good thinking21:17
rfmthe-noob, you should be able to get the new net interface up temporarily, then you can re-install a desktop and get network-manager back, then config the net permanently with the nm gui..21:19
the-noobrfm: there goes a quarter of my timebox :))21:19
the-noobbut looks like a good read, ty21:19
Skybothi - I have this scenario where I use this new install of Ubuntu where I use it very irregularly... I see with this new install there's an option for live patch service.  I'm just a standard users learning linux... how crucial is it that I need this live patch enabled?21:33
Ben64not very21:33
Skybotthanks in advance.21:33
Skybotok, ty.21:34
Skybotanyone else?21:34
Ben64it's more for people who don't want to reboot, like there are services that might be critical or whatever21:34
Skybotahh, clear as a bell, thx.21:34
the-noobok, got the network working21:49
the-noobnot very helpful, if you ask me, but it's working21:49
the-noobany idea how I can debug a 'but it is not going to be installed'?21:51
the-noobstill having those dependency issues21:52
hggdhthe-noob: did you apt update?21:52
the-noobyes, no errors21:53
hggdhthe-noob: the "... but it is not going to be installed" usually points to a discrepancy between a package and its dependencies. Should not happen if all you are installing is from the official repos21:54
hggdhthis could be because you do not have an up-to-date list of packages (what sudo apt update would give you), or because you are mixing official and non-official repos21:55
the-noobI've disabled everything in sources.list.d21:56
hggdhand what do you have in /etc/apt/source.list? Use pastebin, please21:56
the-noobI knew you're going to ask so was just looking now21:58
the-noobthe last chunk in the answer, that's what I have21:58
the-noobcopy pasted from there21:58
the-noobone sec.. progress has been made!21:58
