ghostnik11nacc: it seems like by putting that work around into the kernel actually increases the amount of memmory being used. well this is still just using lubuntu 18.04 from live usb, because before when i was first using it and didn't add the change the memory was only around 200mb being used but now it seems to be 300mb being used. i have 2gb ram but we will see after its done installing00:05

neildugankarthyk, probably your hdd is on the way out01:34
torebroI ran the Ubuntu 18.04.1 installer and chose to install it onto a USB disk. On an old desktop, I could then boot Ubuntu off the disk. However, when trying to boot it on a new Windows 10 / UEFI laptop, it just dumps me at a Grub prompt. What do I do here? I'm not advanced enough to do this.01:38

guiverckarthyk, you can quickly look at hdd health via gnome-disks (use your live system) or `smartctl` (a lot more info but harder to read) - just a thought01:40

neildugankarthyk, did you remove the hdd when booting from the usbstick01:42
karthykno i choosed usb in boot menu01:42
karthyki didnt physically remvoe it tho01:42
neildugankarthyk, try physically removing it (unpluging the sata data cable is enough) then boot off the usdstick and see how that goes01:43
karthykok i will try now01:43
karthykits the same problem nothing changed01:45
karthykit just stuck at welcome to grub message for like 10 minutes01:47
guiverctorebro, where did you install grub to?  if it was the hdd on your old desktop; it will fail on any machine that doesn't have that hdd installed.  you need grub to point to the usb device  (stage 1 is first sector/mbr; later stages are /boot which can be a different drive - your old desktop drive maybe?)01:48

=== Numline1 is now known as Guest17889
guiverctorebro, the grub prompt you describe sounds like grub stage 1 not finding the later stage; so you may not have intended to install grub, but I bet you did. I would have installed grub to the usb device, it'd have included menu to whatever else was on the old-desktop, which you can remove later (or make it match where you will mostly use it).   you can boot from grub rescue, this may help https://help.ubuntu.com/community/02:08
torebroguiverc: the Ubuntu installer never asked me where to install GRUB.02:19
torebroI just chose the target drive and clicked Continue02:19
torebroI can't troubleshoot GRUB, the tiny font on my 15" 4k screen gave me a headache and I had to give up02:21
torebroI think I'm gonna give up02:21
torebrothe Ubuntu installer has another huge issue from a usability POV: the screen where you select the target drive is AFTER the one where you select "Normal installation" and click the "Install now" button (where you're warned all data will be lost). So to the average user (i.e. me), they have no idea what's gonna happen when you click Install Now. I felt it was a 50/50 chance if I get asked to02:24
torebropick a drive on the next screen, or if Ubuntu will auto-select my single HDD and wipe my data.02:24
torebroIt should be a Continue button, then after you select the target drive, THEN show Install Now button02:24
guiverctorebro, that opinion is more a 'bug' that would need to be reported on launchpad (user experience on installer) as it's mainly users here. i usually setup my partitions outside installer, always use 'something else' & use what I wrote down on my recycled-envelope before hand.  you could fix your 'usb-thumb-drive' on a different system (as long as not the old-desktop); as you want it to work via usb only anyway...02:37

qwebirc3653Hello, I was wondering if someone may be able to assist me with a query regarding the installation of ubuntu on a HDD. I am currently on a laptop running Windows 10, which has a 128 GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. The Windows OS is currently stored on the SSD and I use the HDD as a storage device. There is about 700GB of freespace on the HDD and so I would like to partition about 250GB of it to be used for Ubuntu. 1) Is this possible? 2) W03:40
qwebirc36532) Will it affect the data currently stored on my Hdd?03:40
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: yes its possible, but before proceed read these closely:03:41

For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI03:41
qwebirc3653thank you very much03:41
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: remember, always have a good backup before installing, and when prepare the right way, setup will guide you to install ubuntu along windows03:42
qwebirc3653lotuspyschje, so just to confirm once again, my 1TB HDD has 765 GB freespace. I would like to partition this 765 into 250GB + 415 GB, then install Ubuntu from a live USB on the 250 GB partition. This will not affect the currently occupied ~230 GB of data right? Thanks again03:45
qwebirc3653250 + 515 GB*03:46
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: its no problem to make a new partition in free space of a hd03:52
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: a sane way to do it, we see alot of users creating this new partition from windows for an easy ubuntu setup03:52
qwebirc3653So windows will see the HDD as ~750 GB instead of ~1TB after the partition yes?03:54
qwebirc3653and I can continue using that 750 normally on windows for storage03:54
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: yes03:54
qwebirc3653thank you very much, I will make a backup and try it out :)03:55
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: if its free space right03:55
lotuspsychjeqwebirc3653: how much data is occupied on that 1TB?03:55

BlackDaleklotuspsychje, Spookan - another DVD I just put in - this time no DVD menu ever launches and after a few seconds VLC displays an error. This particular disc is TRON Legacy region 1 put out by Disney. https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/9WnBPYtnNM/07:06

robotwizardProblem: git log,man command, git commit and other commands where the terminal becomes interactive and the user can type or navigate around is not working. I type the command and the next prompt appears instead of executing the command.07:09
robotwizardWhat I did: I don't remember doing anything specific, but I installed a terminal emulator called alacritty https://github.com/jwilm/alacritty. This problem did not crop up immediately though. I also messed around changing /etc/alternatives/x-terminal-emulator to the new emulator but later changed it back.07:09
robotwizardExceptions:the same commands when output to a file are working fine. eg:"git log > log.txt works" ! 'info' and 'less' commands seem to work even though they are the interactive type.07:09
BlackDaleklotuspsychje, I am very wary of setting the drive to a particular region as I own DVDs from multiple regions and don't want the drive to lock up after 4 region changes.07:09
SpookanBlackDalek: Why not rip them and make them region free?07:10
BlackDalekSpookan, I could, but why should I need to make duplicate files of content I already have when they should just play from the discs anyway?07:13
BlackDalekSpookan, plus that takes a lot of extra time I don't want to spend ripping discs.07:13
BlackDalekSpookan, also. Ripping them won't always fix the problem if the menus still don't function properly on the ripped copies.07:15

SpookanBlackDalek: Well if it's a diffrent region, then you can change it or rip it, otherwise you can't watch it. Or maybe you can make your dvd player/burner region free, but that's another story. ;)07:15

BlackDalekAs it is apparently imposible to set region 0 with regionset, I think the solution to the DVD menus problem is to just accept that linux is going to have issue with some (not all) DVDs and just stick with using a dedicated region free play DVD player.07:44
SpookanBlackDalek: Or you make your dvd player region free with a new firmware in it.07:45
tomreynme-1: core 2 duo is a 64-bit cpu07:48
tomreynso you can use ubuntu amd6407:48
me-1tomreyn,  3GB DDR2 ram is enough..? and what advantage(s) 64-bit has over 32-bit07:49
tomreynme-1: the default ubuntu no longer comes with 32-bit installers (other flavors still do), but this should tell you something about how much longer 32-bit will be supported in general.07:49
tomreynme-1: since 64-bit is the 'default' nowadays, this is the primary target for anything, which can result in (and has resulted in) getting faster security patches and bug fixes. 64-bit intel also allows for addressing more memory than 32-bit could, but this wont be relevant in your case. you should try to install more memory, or to replace this no longer supported hardware soon.07:52

Fish-Gutshy. my ssh server times out after I killed apt-get. Ping is okay but no ssh connection possible. is there anything i can remotely do about this?08:01
tomreynFish-Guts: not really, unless you have some means of out of band access, or another ssh session still open.08:03
Fish-Gutstomreyn, i have a second machine that allows SSH connections, but I don't think I can connect directly to that one, can I? I have no subdomain mapped to it directly08:04
Fish-Gutsthat second is actually the one I eventually want to connect to08:04
tomreynFish-Guts: i 'm afraid i do not know your network, router and firewall configuration.08:05
tomreyndomains do not matter, addressing (IPv4/6), routing and firewalls do.08:05
tomreynwhat is between you and the two ssh servers?08:07
Fish-Gutsi'm a litle stunned, because of this: i connected to machine A using SSH. through that machine i connected to a PC (machine B) in my remote network. Then I performed some package installation which were hanging so I killed the terminal. But now I cannot connect to machine A even though i did nothing there except use it a proxy to connect08:07
tomreynmaybe ssh was being upgraded when you killed the terminal. be sure to run remote package updates from within a terminal multiplexter such as tmux, screen, byobu.08:08
tomreynwere you running apt on machine A or B?08:09
Fish-Gutsmachine B08:09
tomreynok, then this part is unrelated08:09
Fish-Gutsmachine A is my raspberry pi which I use to connect to my network remotely08:09
tomreynthat's unless machine B provides internet connectivity to machine A08:10
Fish-Gutsit doesn't08:10
tomreynare these systems remote to you?08:11
tomreynif they are, and if their availability is important to you, too, you should setup out of band management for them.08:13
Fish-Gutswell it's more a convenience thing08:13
Fish-Gutsi was just a littled startled beause I actually didn't do anything on my raspberry pi except use it as a gateway to connect to my PC08:13
tomreynSOC computers are great, but they don't always use the greatest parts and are not always reliable.08:15
Fish-Gutstell me about it08:16
tomreynFish-Guts: something like https://pcengines.ch/apu2.htm is a better platform to build remote access systems (also a lot more expensive, though).08:19

aroraCan somebody help?11:41
qCorvinearora, thanks :)11:41
geirha"an iso" is too vague11:42
geirhaI assume it's a file with a .iso extension, but what did you do with it? burn it on a dvd? dd it to a usb drive, use unetbootin or similar to make a persistant bootable usb drive?11:43
transhumanistgeirha, I just compiled it11:44
aroraI am just running it in virtualbox for now geirha11:44
transhumanistoh geirha your not talking to me11:45
transhumanistI am talking about a library, sorry for the confusion11:45
geirhaarora: and you provided this iso to the VM as a virtual cd drive? then anything you write will be gone when you shut down the VM11:46
arorayeah true, but soon I am going to install it, and I want that "write will be gone after shutting down" after installing as well.11:47
arorageirha: ^^11:48
geirhawhat does installing mean? is it a full complete OS?11:48

ubottuLibradex: En la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba " /join #ubuntu-es " (sin comillas) y presione intro.11:48
arorageirha: Yes, a complete 16.04 install with a very limited set of default software.11:49
Cheezarora: you can create a differencing disk (or undo disk) with most virtualisation tech11:49
HelenahWhat does it mean when ping reports "socket: Operation not permitted"?11:50
geirhawell, grub should be able to boot from an iso stored on the disk somewhere. That should give you the same effect as running it in the VM11:51
ubotturoberto_: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».11:51
aroraCheez: does virtualbox support it?11:51
arorageirha: Yeah but I was hoping to install it.11:51
Cheezyeah, it does. vbox calls it snapshots11:51
tomreynarora: virtualbox supports snapshots, yes11:51
Cheezyou install the software, take a snapshot, then you can restore to that snapshot any time you want11:51
geirhaif you install it you really need the fs to be persistent11:51
geirhabut you could figure out which directories the app stores things in and make those readonly. Might work11:52
=== silvio is now known as Guest10646
=== muraty is now known as debrisrat
aroraI want them to be stored and everything to be done as usual, but after reboot, it should become exactly same as day 1, sort of like a resetter.11:54
tomreynHelenah: that the user you run it as does not have authority to run the command you were trying to run, because it would have required creating a raw socket.11:54
arorageirha: ^^11:54
Helenahtomreyn: I take that lightly. This is happening on an Hypervisor system which doesn't get touched. This problem has only just started. So unless a system is capable of removing authority from users, then I fail to understand.11:55
Cheezarora: yeah vbox snapshots will do that. you take a snapshot and all your changes once the snapshot is taken go to a different vhd, you can then discard the vhd to reset back to the original state, or apply the vhd to the original base vhd. when you have a snapshot one of the optinos is shut down and return to snapshot11:55
lotuspsychjeHelenah: your ping command you entered?11:56
Helenahand I tried several other addresses on the net11:56
tomreynHelenah: The 'ping' usually has the suid bit set to enable restricted users to run it. that is, "stat -c%A $(which ping)" which uusally return "-rwsr-xr-x", where the 's' indicated it is suid.11:57
tomreynsuid = super user ID.11:58
HelenahYes, ofc11:58
HelenahLemme have a dig further11:58
tomreynHelenah: so what does the above 'stat' command return for yours?11:59
Helenahtomreyn: It appears you are right. root has permission.11:59
HelenahHow come my system is set like this?11:59
* Helenah types 'stat'11:59
tomreynHelenah: what does "stat -c%A $(which ping)" return?12:00
aroraCheez: sounds cool, I will try in an hour and report back, thanks12:00
HelenahI see now12:00
tomreynHelenah: so ping does not have the suid bit set on your system, which is unusual. are you actually running ubuntu there?12:01
Helenahtomreyn: Yeah12:01
tomreynHelenah: what does "lsb_release -ds" return and how did you install?12:01
Helenahand it's a clean hypervisor which originally users could use ping, and now can't, nothing has been changed.12:01
HelenahNot by a user anyway12:02
Helenah-bash: lsb_release: command not found12:02
HelenahDamn... I forgot...12:02
HelenahSorry guys, it's a Debian system... ugh, my apologies.12:02
HelenahAppears I'm banned from #debian. Nevermind. Hey guys, thank you very much for your support anyway.12:03
HelenahMy apologies once again12:03
aroraWhat's "uname -a" output Helenah12:03
transhumanistgeirha, sorry one more question does ldconfig (when updated) show symlinks as well as library files?12:03
transhumanistas an experiement I symlinked a slightly older version of the libarry12:04
tomreynHelenah: okay, you seem to already be aware that you should not ask debian questions here, so i'll spare you that lecture. ;)12:04
Helenaharora: Linux ip2 4.15.17-1-pve #1 SMP PVE 4.15.17-9 (Wed, 9 May 2018 13:31:43 +0200) x86_64 GNU/Linux12:04
Helenahtomreyn: Yeah, agreed.12:04
HelenahThanks, I didn't want a lecture for something I'm aware of anything.12:04
tomreynbe sure to also mention that you run a non standard kernel in case you'll regain access to #debian12:05
Helenaharora: I don't really want support with it in here.12:05
HelenahBut for your reference, that's my uname -a output.12:05
geirhatranshumanist: it typically shows the shorter name, which is usually symlinked to the longer name, but I'm not sure what the actual algorithm is for which name it decides to use12:05
tomreynproxmox installs its own kernel.12:05
aroraOh okay then Helenah12:06
transhumanistthis is totally messed up , I have never had this problem before, I don't understand it, thats why I thought it was a make bug12:06
transhumanisterr... cmake12:06
aroraHelenah: It doesn't seem that you are banned in #debian, can you check again?12:07
HelenahThat's a question: How do you guys know I'm banned in #debian? Sorry for being offtopic, but both arora and tomreyn raised that concern.12:08
lotuspsychje_Helenah: ask the #debian staff12:08
aroracommand "/mode #debian +b" didnt show your nick, also "/bans" in some channels shows the banned people similar to previous command.12:09
aroraHelenah: ^^12:09

sveinseOn my 18.04 desktop, ubuntu is contantly notifying about available software update, yet apt report everything updated. So I enter the ubuntu software and it sais I have an update on "ThinkPad P51". If I press "update", it comes back again after a few seconds. How can I inspect why it doesn't update, and how can I do that from command line? Apparently its not apt based.12:12
lotuspsychje_herlimenezes: start from the beginning please, ubuntu version? kernel version?12:12
BluesKajtomreyn, merely a comment ..don't intend to discuss12:12

lotuspsychjeuboa: did you install ubuntu-restricted-extras?12:15
uboalotuspsychje, i think so but how can i check? sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras??12:15
herlimenezeslotuspsychje: well, it is an old netbook, running mint. Its ubuntu 16.1, I guess, don't know how to discover kernel version12:15

herlimenezesOk, ty ubottu!12:18
lotuspsychjesveinse: not sure wich package that is, but have you tryed from terminal: sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade ?12:18
sveinselotuspsychje: yeah, as I said that this isn't coming from apt12:19
lotuspsychjesveinse: can you recall installing something containing thinkpad?12:19
sveinselotuspsychje: no, but I am running on a P51 thou, so the installer might have12:20
JimBuntusveinse, Did you buy this P51 with Ubuntu pre-installed?12:21
nbg_I tried to copy all my GnuPG keys from one Ubtuntu installation to another. I copied ~/.gnupg but the keys don’t show up on the new installation in the Enigmail listing for keys. What have I done wrong?12:21
sveinseJimBuntu: no12:21
lotuspsychjesveinse: can you find out wich package name that is?12:22
lotuspsychjenbg_: can this help? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnuPrivacyGuardHowto12:24
sveinselotuspsychje: This is actually my question here, since the ubutu software wants to update something that apt doesn't. Thus I cannot find any apt packages installed on my system that bears resemblance with thinkpad and p5112:24
sveinseSo what other upgrade/packages systems are there on a 18.04 ubuntu system these days?12:25
lotuspsychjesveinse: you sure you tryed a full-upgrade right?12:25
sveinselotuspsychje: yes12:25
lotuspsychjesveinse: as it showsup in gnome software, try to search thinkpad, see whats that package is about?12:26
BluesKajsveinse, ubuntu softwareand apt are part of the same package manegement system. dpkg12:26
sveinseThe software updater sais "ThinkPad P51 0.1.44 > 0.1.45". So I grepped from any packages with version 0.1.44. The only match I find is "ii  libbabl-0.1-0:amd64  0.1.44-1  amd64  Dynamic, any to any, pixel format conversion library". <-- I doubt this is the package at hand12:28
nbg_lotuspsychje: I thought there was an easier way than re-importing all of my keys. I thought I had already copied the folder where they are stored an the reappeared.12:28
lotuspsychjesveinse: found it: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/08/lvfs-lenovo-firmware-updates-linux12:28
sveinselotuspsychje: but the updater doesn't work. I.e. press "update" and it comes back a few seconds later proposing to update it again. So where could the logs for this be?12:30
DorfenHi, I have a clean install of ubuntu 18.04 live server, and trying to install redis-server via apt it can't locate the package - googling told me it should be in the default ubuntu repo. So I guess im doing something wrong?12:30
lotuspsychjesveinse: not sure, its the first time i see it12:31
guivercDorfen, https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=redis-server - it's in universe; so did you enable universe repo (by default only main is enabled)12:33
lotuspsychje!info fwupd | sveinse12:33
ubottusveinse: fwupd (source: fwupd): Firmware update daemon. In component main, is optional. Version 1.0.6-2 (bionic), package size 1428 kB, installed size 3296 kB12:33
sveinseoh, intersting. the journal reports that every time I move a window in my desktop, I get flooded with a stack trace from gnome shell. :(12:34
guivercDorfen, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu if interested in more info on repositories..  main=5 year support for LTS, universe you need to check for each package for support life, most are 3 year only there; which is one reason universe isn't enabled by default.12:35
Dorfenguiverc: how would I go about enabling universe from cli?12:35
Dorfendoes this command do the trick: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe"12:36
sveinselotuspsychje: great, I think I will try a reboot. One of the listed items with fwupdate -l shows "Update status: Preparing" so perhaps a reboot it required. That the Ubuntu software GUI doesn't support or show properly the updating state. So let me try that first. brb12:37
lotuspsychjesveinse: ok great12:37
ioriaDorfen,   sudo add-apt-repository universe && sudo apt update   should be enough12:38
jk^hi all pls, which is the command "SMART" to control hd?12:39
jk^and fsck?12:39
guivercDorfen, I add the ' universe ' to my sources manually as I use it as a chance to 'audit' what's in there - refer to what ioria gave12:39
BluesKajDorfen, yes it should, unless you already have thaqt deb line in the /etc/apt/sources.list and just needs to be uncommented (removing the # in front of the line)12:39
jk^i forgot the syntax of smartctl12:43
jk^and fsck12:43
lotuspsychjejk^: you can do a smart test from disktools if you like12:44
jk^i'm in recovery mode12:44
Dorfenim setting up the server via ansible, so I think the command should work fine! :) at least it does for now, thank you12:48
jk^i pressed enter to open recovery mode. It shows me a prompt with (initramfs)12:49
lotuspsychje!fsck | jk^12:49
ubottujk^: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot12:49
jk^i try to enter sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda12:50
jk^but it doesn't work12:50
compdocwhat happens?12:51
compdocdo you have a desktop installed? you can use gnome disk utility to read SMART12:52
jk^i try to reboot system, but the OS doesn't open12:53
jk^so i try recovery mode12:53
compdocsounds like sda is the wrong dev12:53
jk^it shows me a prompt "(initramfs)12:53
jk^sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda12:53
jk^i give this command, but it doesn't accept it12:53
compdocwhat does it say? command not found?12:54
tomreynyou're in initramfs, you only have access to a small subset of shell commands there12:54
jk^it says: "sudo not found"=12:54
tomreynthis is not recovery12:54
jk^i typed "help"12:54
jk^there are many commands, but i don't know which use12:55
jk^to control hd12:55
jk^i just know smartctl and fsck12:55
compdocjk^, you should boot ubuntu from a usb stick or dvd. the commands are available there12:55
jk^ok compdoc12:55
compdocjust dont select 'install'12:55

madLyfei just need to get the samaba config file i setup to my local puter so i can edit it easily and then put it back.16:39
madLyfenano would suck for all the edits.16:39
madLyfei cant believe this is so difficult.16:39

cousteau(I have tried downloading labyrinth from git and it said it was missing gconf python module so I gave up)16:41
nacccousteau: yes, it's abandoned upstream16:42
cousteauthat's one thing, but being unable to use it at all is something else16:42
naccmadLyfe: what are the OS of the two computers? why can't you just scp?16:42
nacccousteau: s/use/build/16:42
cousteauI was expecting github clone to be enough16:42
nacccousteau: and that's what abandoned means.16:43
nacccousteau: at this point, offtopic, anyways :)16:43
cousteaunacc, wait, we're talking about labyrinth or gconf?16:43
nacccousteau: labyrinth16:43
cousteaubecause labyrinth is a python program that needs no building16:43

nacccousteau: then you didn't install some dependency16:43
naccmadLyfe: ... scp ?16:43
cousteauyeah well, probably16:43
madLyfeis that built into terminal or is there something else special i need?16:43
naccmadLyfe: i have no idea why you need zmodem to copy a file between two servers.16:44
nacc*why you would think you need16:44
naccmadLyfe: it's secure copy over ssh16:44
cousteauhell, I wouldn't even bother with scp; I'd open a file manager and use an sftp:// address16:44
nacccousteau: if they are two servers, may not have a file manager on either16:44
nacccousteau: and i have no idea why you'd think using a GUI is better than scp16:45
madLyfei was told zmodem or scp16:45
naccmadLyfe: i've never heard of zmodem16:45
madLyfethe file is a sudo file16:45
naccmadLyfe: use scp, you don't need to install anything if you already can ssh16:45
naccmadLyfe: you mean it's owned by root?16:45
naccmadLyfe: can a regular user not read it?16:45
naccmadLyfe: (not write it, read it)16:45

madLyfeit sucks to work in nano and its a large amount of edits i need to make. i dont want to use nano to edit the whole thing.16:46
naccmadLyfe: what do you want to use? are you just moving it between systems to edit it?16:46
naccmadLyfe: that's not sensible either16:47

madLyfeyes thats what im trying to do16:48
* cousteau keeps thinking sftp:// for all this GUI-mode stuff16:48
naccthen scp it back to your user, ssh to your server and then as sudo cp it in place16:48

nacccousteau: presuming it has one. i believe the other system is a server without x16:50
nacc(based upon other irc discussions)16:50
cousteauthen never mind16:50
naccmadLyfe: also, learn to use a non-GUI editor :)16:50
cousteau...but do you need an X server at all to run an X application remotely?16:50
cousteau(not a rhetoric question; I actually don't know)16:50
madLyfe'scp kinghat-server:/etc/samba/smb.conf /home/documents' like that?16:51
nacccousteau: yes, I think so. One or the other needs to actually run the application.16:51
naccmadLyfe: `scp kinghat-server:/etc/samba/smb.conf /home/documents/` is probably preferred but i think is the same if /home/documents already exists16:51
strivemadLyfe: rsync is an awesome tool for transfer and backups :)16:51
cousteauwouldn't it be kinghat-server.local or something like that?16:51
naccand that assumes kinghat-server resolves16:51
naccstrive: good point16:51
madLyfeor is it /home/kinghat/documents?16:52
naccmadLyfe: i don't know where you want to put it locally16:52
naccmadLyfe: you shouold, at a minimum, know thjis16:52
madLyfethe server resolves w/o the .local16:52
cousteauthen nvm16:52
madLyfebeen through that already16:52
madLyfeis the kinghat in the user path a given or do you have to include it?16:53
naccmadLyfe: it's not 'given'16:53
naccmadLyfe: that doesn't even amke sense :) you just gave it a literal path16:53
naccmadLyfe: if you want your user's home, use $HOME or ~16:53
naccmadLyfe: the shell isn't magic, it just does what you tell it to do16:54
naccmadLyfe: would put it in the user who is running the command's home directory's documents sub-directory16:54
naccmadLyfe: you may or may not want to read `man bash`16:55
madLyfedoes it need to be /~/documents?16:55
naccmadLyfe: technically that makes no difference, but it's not normal16:55
strive~/ is equal to /home/user/documents16:55
naccmadLyfe: again, read the manpage16:55
naccmadLyfe: /~ is /$HOME is //home/user16:55
strivemadLyfe: What are you trying to accomplish?16:56
naccstrive: this all appears to be an aside from the actual goal16:56
naccmadLyfe: have you tried just running the command?16:56
madLyfeya it says completed 100% but there is no file16:58
cousteauif my username is cousteau, then ~/blah = "$HOME"/blah = /home/cousteau/blah16:58
strivemadLyfe: What did you run?16:58
cousteaunacc, in fact /~ is /~ (unless we're talking something specially handled by scp and not the bash shell)16:59
madLyfelol it looks like it just made a file in home called documents17:00
cousteaumadLyfe, isn't it Documents, not documents?17:00
cousteaulook for a file named documents in your home17:00

striveI know it does in rsync, not too sure with scp.17:01
AndroUsergfhD ♥︎17:01
naccmadLyfe: which is waht I just said.17:01
striveGiving a destination of "~/documents" will rename the file to "documents" that's placed with in the home directory.17:02
nacccousteau: "/~ is /~" ? yes. Because those are the same string literals. I think you meant "/~ is ~" which is what I alrady said.17:02
strivemadLyfe: Next time, destination should be ~/Documents/smb.conf17:02
cousteauit's just, if it ends with / it just tells it it's a directory (so if it doesn't exist then you're in trouble), and if it doesn't then it tries to figure out based on whether that dir exists or not17:02
naccstrive: yes, I made the point that it depended on if ~/documents already existed or not. If it already exists, I believe scp will put the file in the directory.17:03
strivecousteau: You nailed it.17:03
striveAh, ok.17:03
cousteaunacc, no, I meant that the ~ in /~ is not substituted by "$HOME"17:03

madLyfek needs to be closed17:09
naccmadLyfe: preferable not to test in this channel17:10
madLyfeso if i want to do the reverse and send the file back, overwriting what is there, its `sudo scp ~/Documents/smb.conf kinghat-server:/etc/samba/smb.conf` ?17:11
naccmadLyfe: not sudo.17:11
naccmadLyfe: sudo is a local command17:11
naccmadLyfe: you would scp to your user on the remote system, then on the remote system, sudo cp it in place.17:11
madLyfeah yes. didnt know if since its a root file over there17:11
naccmadLyfe: who owns the file remotely isn't relevant17:12
naccmadLyfe: if you have root permitted over ssh (I hope you do not), you can prepend root@ to the target server to login as root.17:12
naccmadLyfe: but presuming you don't, and you shouldn't, you'll need to scp to a regular user and then move the file on the server17:12

m_i_k_emadLyfe: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Z3FMGgsVhg/17:47
m_i_k_emadLyfe: if this doesn't work, it may be a permission issue. you could try moving the file locally on the other computer to you home directory, then set permissions and finally copying it via scp to the other computer.17:49
madLyfem_i_k_e: im trying to go the other way though. send local file to remote server17:49
m_i_k_emadLyfe: ah.. sorry.  reverse the paths (local to destination). you probably can't go directly to the path due to permissions.  copy it to the destination computer's home path, then ssh and copy the file to the destination directory using sudo.17:51
Zexaronthanks mike but it may be your not registered, I did found some issues on settings/configs/session, BSODs have happened while hexchat was open here because I was troubleshooting the recurring BSODs, I know more what causes them so I'll just avoid doing that at the same time, while cleaning out hexchat settings/session should fix it17:53

naccmadLyfe: you are attempting to scp as the kinghat user (since no user was provided for the remote server). That user does *not* have permissi0on to write to /etc/samba.

ghostnik11eric^^ because it failed installation during a fresh install of lubuntu 18.04 it crashed during i386-efi platform18:05
EriC^^ghostnik11: i see, if you want you can let the installer not install grub at all by starting it using "ubiquity -b"18:05
EriC^^cause i think it cleans up and stuff after installing grub so it probably missed that18:06

EriC^^ghostnik11: what a mess18:16
m_i_k_emadLyfe: ok, great!  welcome!18:16

lotuspsychjeouternational: join #ubuntu-server plz they might have a look for you18:17
outernationallotuspsychje but this is happening at the site, i haven't even identified where i will use the token18:17
ghostnik11EriC^^: basically the minute it goes to installing i386-efi platform during installation it crashes the system. thats what kept happening yesterday when i kept trying to boot it18:17
EriC^^ghostnik11: type "apt-get purge grub-pc" then "apt-get install grub-efi-amd64-signed grub-efi-amd64"18:18
=== endochelly is now known as endochello
EriC^^ghostnik11: hmmmm18:18
EriC^^did you say i386-efi?18:18
EriC^^ghostnik11: i dont think ubuntu's installer even has 32bit efi support..18:18
EriC^^ghostnik11: did you have to manually copy it over to the live usb?18:19
EriC^^ghostnik11: i think you need to install the grub-efi-ia32 package, that's 32bit efi18:19
ghostnik11EriC^^: yeah i had to copy the boot/grub/efi folder to that on the filesystem from live boot which allowed me to get to grub without the live cd. the folder i copied had all of the modules in it18:20
ghostnik11EriC^^: so don't install apt-get install grub-efi-amd64-signed grub-efi-amd6418:20
EriC^^ghostnik11: no i mean when you made the live usb, usually if the efi is 32bit like for tablets and such the person has to copy a 32bit version of grubx64.efi so it boots it18:21
EriC^^im trying to understand if you have a 32bit efi or 64bit efi18:21
EriC^^seems on google it says 32bit efi18:21
ghostnik11EriC^^: yeah i used isorespin.sh to make it have that. so i can boot the live cd. the problem is for some reason it crashes when it trys to install grub218:21
EriC^^ghostnik11: aha18:22
EriC^^ghostnik11: type "apt-get purge grub-pc" then "apt-get install grub-efi-ia32"18:22
ghostnik11EriC^^: i get an error dpkg: error processing package shim-signed (--configure18:24
ghostnik11EriC^^: when i try to purge grub18:24
ghostnik11EriC^^: should i carry on with the second command to install grub-efi-ia32?18:24
EriC^^yes ghostnik1118:25
EriC^^ghostnik11: ah wait18:25
EriC^^first, purge both18:25
EriC^^apt-get purge grub-pc grub-efi-amd64-signed grub-efi-amd6418:25
EriC^^then please run "dpkg -l | grep grub | nc termbin.com 9999" again18:25
ghostnik11EriC^^: http://termbin.com/46fy18:27
ghostnik11EriC^^: should i continue now with the apt-get install grub-efi-ia32?18:29
EriC^^ghostnik11: no, run "apt-get purge grub-efi-amd64-bin"18:29
EriC^^then install grub-efi-ia3218:29

BerenHi, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 using the minimal iso (on i386). I'm on the install GRUB step but it keeps failing20:47
Berenmy disk is GPT and I created a BIOS boot partition. since it's old laptop, it's non-EFI. But installing to /dev/sda1 fails20:47
compdocdoes ubuntu support i386 anymore?20:47
Berencompdoc: yes, afaik20:47
Berenbut no more server iso, only the net installer20:48
Aph3x-WLyou need to install grub to the disk, not a partition20:53
Aph3x-WLso /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda120:54
Aph3x-WLand i don't even know what you mean by a "bios boot partition"20:54
BerenAph3x-WL: I tried that first, but it failed20:54
Aph3x-WLyou may also need to use mbr instead of gpt20:54
BerenBios boot partition is what you use for GPT and non-UEFI. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Installing20:55
BerenI am wondering if I can resume the grub install later on, since my base system is already installed20:56
Berenthere's no gdisk on this net installer20:56
BerenI'm thinking installer may be installing in UEFI mode? not sure how to change this20:56
Aph3x-WLif your system doesn't support uefi then it's not in uefi mode20:57
Aph3x-WLit wouldn't be able to boot20:57
=== rpg is now known as Guest73516
Aph3x-WLyou should be able to manually install grub later if you need to20:58
Aph3x-WLdid you set the "bios_grub" flag on the boot partition?20:58
BerenI know my system doesn't support UEFI, but the grub installer is showing "It seems that this computer is configured to boot via EFI, but ..."20:58
BerenI just did a standard install, with nothing fancy. I used the installer partitioner20:59
BerenYes, the parititon type is showing up as biosgrub in the "Partition disks" screen.20:59
Aph3x-WLif it's saying that it's using efi than it seems like your system does support it otherwise it just wouldn't boot at all if it is indeed booting via uefi21:00
BerenAph3x-WL: I know my system doesn't support UEFI. I installed older versions of Ubuntu before21:01
Berenalso no options in BIOS. it's just that this time, I can't get GRUB to install using the net installer21:01
Berenso wondering if there's a way to force it to be legacy grub21:01
Berenor how to check from the net installer?21:02
Aph3x-WLyeah, i don't know, that's just a weird situation21:03
BerenAph3x-WL: yea.. if it did install UEFI, I'm sure that GRUB would have installed on disk normally. it must be that computer doesn't support UEFI (also from my memory) and installer is in EFI mode21:03
BerenI think I'll try the 16.04 desktop iso and install grub from there21:04
BerenI did only make the bios boot parition after the grub install failed, so maybe making it earlier on would change the grub install mode. I don't know21:05
BerenWill set up later and see, thanks Aph3x-WL21:10

tomreynmini.iso might mean that yu're lacking some packages, whch would surely matter for wireless, but shouldn't normally matter for ethernet21:52
tomreynthough it may mean that it defaults to systemd-networkd and not network-manager for managing network interfaces21:53
itshermanhere's my dmesg output http://sprunge.us/VlIAxx21:55
tomreynis this going to be a server type system, or rather a graphical desktop?21:56
=== jemadux_ is now known as jemadux
itshermanI'm using gnome for now, but it's just for running servers21:56
itshermanProbably switch from gnome to i3. As of now some of my software requires gui, though that may change soon.21:57
tomreyndo you have a preference on network-manager (18.04 default for desktops) vs systemd-networkd (18.04 default for servers)?21:57
itshermanI've never worked with networkd21:58
itshermanSo network-manager is my preference, because I atleast know how to open that tui menu21:58
itshermanBut really it doesn't matter once the ethernet is working21:58
tomreynare you into https://netplan.io, yet, or do you want to use it? it's an abstraction to ease network interface configuration management22:00
itshermanI'm not familiar with it at all22:00
tomreynit can work with both network manager and systemd-networkd (allowing you to switch between the two)22:01
tomreyn[    0.945198] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded22:01

tomreyn[    0.945959] r8169 0000:04:00.0 eth0: jumbo features [frames: 9200 bytes, tx checksumming: ko]22:01
tomreynis what you got there22:02
itshermanIt doesn't seem to be having issues? Even offers jumbo features!22:02
tomreynyou have some acpi issues, but they seem to be about usb rather22:03
skinuxI have both Qt4 and Qt5 installed, but libreoffice won't launch because of version incompatibility22:03
tomreyns/USB/your video card/22:04
itshermanHmm, well I only have intel graphics22:05
tomreynPCI bus slot 0, i should have said. this is where a dedicated graphics card would uusally be located, if you had one.22:06
itshermanI'm faily certain it's empty22:07
itshermanActually, I'm sure its empty22:07
tomreynprobably unrelated, too22:07
tomreynitsherman: so there's no errors or warnings about the r8169 ethernet driver nor the enp4s0 interface. so i guess it *should* work. my guess is that the system is currently configured to use systemd-networkd and not NM.22:09
tomreyni'm not sure how to switch betrween them (other than using netplan), so i'll try to find out.22:09
itshermanI just ran systemctl stop systemd-networkd then systemctl start network-manager. After that tried to use nmtui again22:09
itshermanSame error as before22:09
tomreynokay, according to http://xmodulo.com/switch-from-networkmanager-to-systemd-networkd.html this should have been the correct way.22:10
skinuxApparently I have QT versions 4.8.7 and 4.8.5 both installed. How do I remedy this?22:11
tomreynitsherman: hmm, i can't find anything on your error message, i'm searching for: "is not available on the device" "at this time"22:12
tomreynitsherman:can you double check it's spelled correctly?22:12
tmm88skinux, have you tried it with qt 5, straight with the IDE/Editor, without using command line tools like qmake, and so22:18
itshermantomreyn: I just coppied the tui for you. Also included output of systemctl status systemd-networkd http://sprunge.us/ItpDyr22:18
tomreynitsherman: most likely also irrelevant for *this* issue, but there's a newer bios available for this system at https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/hp-pavilion-500-100-desktop-pc-series/5395585/model/5399353/swItemId/cp-125108-122:19
itshermanenp4s0: Link is not managed by us22:19
tomreynitsherman: so if it's not managed by systemd-networkd, is it managed by network-manager?22:20
tomreynand manye use nmcli to try to bring it up, it may provide a better error message22:20
tomreyni.e. run: systemctl status network-manager22:21
skinuxI'm not trying to use qtcreator...I'm trying to use LibreOffice22:22
tomreynitsherman: and "nmcli conn"22:22
skinuxLibreOffice fails with this error: Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x40807) with this library (version 0x40805)22:22
tomreynitsherman: actuall yjust run "nmcli"22:22
itshermantomreyn: http://sprunge.us/cEJmkl22:25
itshermanIm going to see if I have net on the mini iso real quick22:26
skinuxWhen I do qtchooser -list-versions it shows all of this https://gist.github.com/skinuxgeek/de5512adb4ec5695597297db3398591422:28
tomreynitsherman: so you have a connection profile in NM but it's not configured for the ethernet interface you have there.22:28
tomreynenp4s0 is bneither managed by NM nor by SN22:29
itshermantomreyn: Well how do I make one of them manage it?22:30
tomreynnmcli device set enp4s0 managed yes22:31
tomreynnmcli device set enp4s0 autoconnect yes22:31
tomreyn(i just needed to look this up as well)22:31
tomreynnmcli device connect enp4s022:32
tomreyn^ may be needed the first time22:32
tomreyni suspect it will then creater a new connection profile which is then bound to the actual interface.22:33
fishieHow do I update my version 16 copy of Xubuntu? I think I typed too much in the slow channel of #Xubuntu and I'm not getting any response.22:34
itshermantomreyn: Not available on this device at this time22:35
fishieEvery time I try to update it says I have something like... unsupported 3rd party or something ... packages? I'm not sure if it's my proprietary NVIDIA drivers or what.22:35
tomreynitsherman: meh. i'm not sure what else to try, maybe ask in #ubuntu-server, after !register -ing with nickserv22:36
tomreynoh you're identified already22:37
itshermanI'm not using ubuntu server22:38
manoshi all22:42
skinuxI'm at a loss. libreoffice won't launch with ANY version I specify...claiming the same version mismatch22:43
Bashing-omfishie: Explain what you mean by "update" - as in a release upgrade to 18.04 ?22:44
fishieBashing-om, correct.22:44
fishieI'm on version 1622:45
Bashing-omfishie: The upgrade manager will "try" to disable PPAs ,, sometimes It can not . show us what the haps be ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' in a pastebin site. See where we go from there .22:46
itshermantomreyn: Thanks for the help. I guess I'm just going to unistall ubuntu or something22:49
jbdmanOkay guys, I've gotten myself into a bit of a pickle with Ubuntu 18.04 Server. https://imgur.com/2ZBsGiZ I'm not sure what this means, and I'm not sure what to google.22:54
jbdmanCould this be an issue with SDB?22:54
Ben64picture of text?22:54
jbdmanIt is, I don't have the ability to copy anything22:55
jbdmanIt seems to have come up, but that took forever22:55
tomreynitsherman: maybe just try a full installation, such as a desktop or server installation, should be much easier.22:59
pwbuttI'm using ubuntu in a virtual machine but dock keeps hiding23:14
Yezigumaybe you can google first23:44
ducasse!google | Yezigu23:47
ubottuYezigu: While Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.23:47
