bluewizardHello! I decided to add a server running Ubuntu-Server ( (as a VM) to my lab, and I am running into an issue with NetPlan. My interfaces were all wiped when rebooting after the initial setup (similar to --> https://askubuntu.com/questions/1019146/netplan-does-not-apply-at-startup). Since I now have no networking, I cannot install netplan.io or netplan. My question -- is there a way to recover this without having to manually con00:46
bluewizardfigure the network interfaces? I have confirmed that my NetPlan config in /etc/netplan/ has the same information entered during setup (that worked fine before rebooting), and I have restarted services per the link noted. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have (I will keep digging as well)!00:46
CarlFKbluewizard: try sudo dhclient00:53
CarlFKthat might/should get the box on the lan, and then you can ssh/apt/whatever00:53
olof_szaryIf i recall correctly there were some issues with VM not running biosdevname package, but it was some time ago00:55
bluewizardCarlFK: That got me back on the lan and I can work with that. Thank you for the tip!00:55
bluewizardolof_szary: Interesting to note. The link I found does mention known issues with NetPlan on Ubuntu 18.04 that have allegedly been resolved.00:56
CarlFKchrome/chromium - how do I set a header before I do a GET?00:56
SlidingHornCarlFK: can you not set the header with the GET request? https://stackoverflow.com/a/1187690701:00
CarlFKSlidingHorn: that looks like js.  im trying to just get URLs with my browser01:03
TJ-bluewizard: what does the file in /etc/netplan/ contain ?01:03
TJ-bluewizard: it may not be matching on interface names for example01:03
bluewizardTJ: The interface name matches the output of $(ip a) - ens3. There is one address under 'addresses:', No DHCP, gateway - It is worth noting that all interfaces are in the state DOWN on each boot.01:08
bluewizardCarlFK's suggestion to use dhclient does get me online. I may just remove NetPlan and see if I can use something else.01:09
olof_szarywhat does systemctl status networking.service gives after boot usually?01:09
TJ-bluewizard: better to resolve the issue, it may not be netplan01:09
TJ-bluewizard: at boot-time netplan 'renders' a systemd-networkd config in /run/systemd/network/ - check there are files in there. If not, then there is no active network config01:10
bluewizardTJ-: I agree with you that netplan itself may not be the issue, but this is a pretty default setup aside from the static IP set during install. I am just wondering if netplan is more trouble than it is worth. You do have a point though. =)01:12
bluewizardolof_szary: 'active (exited)'. systemctl status systemd-networkd shows: 'active (running)'01:12
bluewizardI may be doing something incorrectly, but my other VMs do not display this behavior on boot after the initial setup.01:13
TJ-bluewizard: config files in /run/systemd/network? ?01:13
bluewizardTJ-: This system doesn't even have that directory -- but it does have /run/systemd/netif/.01:14
TJ-bluewizard: then that is a problem, since systemd-networkd should create that at startup01:15
TJ-bluewizard: "journalctl -u systemd-networkd".service"01:15
TJ-darn, typos!01:15
TJ-bluewizard: "journalctl -u systemd-networkd.service"01:15
bluewizardTJ-: Interesting - there are multiple consecutive entries showing Network Service stopping and starting, sometimes 5 entries in a second. Also noteworthy are the entries saying the interface (ens3) 'Lost carrier' and 'Gained carrier' back to back.01:18
TJ-bluewizard: same hypervisor as your other well-behaved virtual machines?01:19
bluewizardTJ-: Yes. My VMs are mostly CentOS7 on a Debian host. Only this Ubuntu server displays this behavior.01:20
bluewizardUsing QEMU/KVM for the record01:21
bluewizardTJ-: I believe this is a standout message -- firewalld.service: Job polkit.service/stop deleted to break ordering cycle starting with firewalld.service/stop01:23
TJ-bluewizard: that doesn't look familiar, firewalld isn't often used with Ubuntu01:24
TJ-bluewizard: experiment with masking it off01:24
bluewizardTJ-: I fully removed the package and rebooted the system, but the issue exists. I was able to install the netplan package though, and the output $(netplan -d) shows that there is an error -- netplan: fatal error: cannot bind to port 2983, is another daemon running?, exiting.01:30
bluewizardTJ-: I need to investigate that further to see if a conflicting service is configured as Enabled on boot.01:30
TJ-bluewizard: is it possible there's two instances of netplan both trying to start?01:32
TJ-bluewizard: it would seem strange that 2 separate services both pick the same port number01:32
bluewizardTJ-: I just installed netplan (1.10.1-5build1), which uninstalled netplan.io (0.40.1~18.04.3). This provides instructions to create a file, '/etc/default/netplan', and add 'ENABLED=1'. I did this and rebooted, and the error is gone. Now there is a new error - Permission denied for netplan on /var/lib/plan/netplan.dir/. I will investigate that next.01:37
TJ-bluewizard: oh you've jsut made me laugh so much :D "netplan" is a completely different package to "netplan.io" :)01:39
TJ-!info netplan01:39

danstis there a petition against using pulseaudio01:41
TJ-danst: not that I've noticed. If you don't want to use simply uninstall it01:42
bluewizardTJ-: Oops... (;-_-)    I tried to install netplan.io while troubleshooting, so that is why it was there. Good to know though! What's interesting is that netplan:netplan is the user:group owner set for this directory (rwx rx rx). /run/systemd/network still does not exist though.01:43
danstTJ-: I don't think developer community hears end users01:43
TJ-bluewizard: I may have been wrong about what creates that directory, I noticed on a test VM here it isn't created if I'm not using netplan01:44
danstand I don't know a person who enjoys pulseaudio01:44
danston headless01:44
danstif you're a normie like me, you would consider ubuntu on desktop a bad idea01:44
danstI understand that there are people with different set of mind and tasks required to be done on their computer01:46
danstbut there are people like me too01:46
bluewizardTJ-: Again the error states that netplan cannot bind to port 2983. Yet, the output of $(lsof -i :2983) shows that netplan is listening on that port.01:48
TJ-bluewizard: I'll build a new guest here using netplan see how it behaves, but as far as I've seen so far it has been fine01:51
bluewizardTJ-: It looks like the networking persisted over that last reboot01:51
bluewizardTJ-: Since I introduced an error by removing netplan, installing netplan.io, then repeating that twice (sorry!), it is difficult for me to identify what the exact issue was. My best guess - networking.service was set to Enabled in addition to systemd-networkd. I believe I created that issue.01:54
TJ-bluewizard: so now you've got netplan(.io) generating files in /run/systemd/network/ ?01:55
bluewizardolof_szary: You were indeed correct that the issue was not with netplan!01:55
bluewizardTJ-: Yes! It also contains the networking configuration set on install (10-netplan-ens3.network)01:55
TJ-bluewizard: right, that is being generated each boot based on the /etc/netplan/ YAML01:56
TJ-/run/ is a tmpfs created on each boot so nothing persists over reboots there01:57
bluewizardTJ-: I believe that when I tried to remove netplan I inadvertently set ifupdown to Enabled. Reinstalling netplan.io must not set ifupdown to Disabled.01:57
TJ-bluewizard: that sounds correct, that's the admin's job :)01:57
bluewizardTJ-: The output of $(systemctl -a | grep -i network) no longer shows it as active after manually disabling it. That makes sense that it is the admin's job, but merely removing netplan.io seemed to set ifupdown to Enabled, I do not see the corresponding systemctl command in my command line history. Wouldn't you consider this inconsistent?01:58
TJ-I'm not aware of anything in the netplan .postinst/.postrm scripts that'd do that but I'll look in a moment once this VM image has finished building01:59
TJ-bluewizard: No, there are no .post{inst,rm} scripts at all for netplan.io so it isn't guilty :)02:01
bluewizardTJ-: P.S. - Thank you very much for taking the time to talk with me through this. I appreciate your time and assistance. I will be sure to apply what was learned here today should anything similar come up!02:02
bluewizardTJ-: I wonder then what would cause this?02:02
TJ-bluewizard: have you been using a full root shell, or 'sudo ...' - if the latter, check /var/log/auth.log because it records all commands issued via sudo02:03
bluewizardTJ-: I switched to root and did not use sudo from my account.02:03
TJ-bluewizard: well, as long as it is fixed now :)02:04
bluewizardTJ-: The postinst file for ifupdown has this line: deb-systemd-helper enable 'networking.service'02:06
bluewizardTJ-: I did in fact run apt-get install ifupdown02:06
bluewizardTJ-: So it was me...02:07
bluewizardTJ-: Thank you again for your help! I even learned something new =)02:07
TJ-bluewizard: now all I have to do is fix all my own bugs :p02:09
powerninjahello, does the following get latest security updates? "sudo apt-get install unattended-upgrades && sudo unattended-upgrades"02:18
lotuspsychjepowerninja: no, sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade02:18
FastZSo I have a java applet that I pinned to my dock. Then I deleted the applet, but the icon still takes up its space on the dock and I can't interact with it. How does one go about removing things like that from the dock?02:19
sincere_foxI figured it out, I had to edit  /etc/lxc/lxc-usernet, thanks02:21
powerninjaHi lotuspsychje, OK will it at least generate the /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log file and see what will be updated?02:27
powerninjaI don't want to run the full-upgrade, only the new security packages of already installed packages.02:28
lotuspsychjepowerninja: its not reccomended to hold back updates02:28
powerninjaOK, understood02:29
TJ-powerninja: sounds perfectly fine - that is how u-u is intended to work02:29
lotuspsychjepowerninja: wich ubuntu version are you on?02:29
powerninjaUbuntu 1602:30
leftyfbpowerninja: there is no "Ubuntu 16"02:30
leftyfbpowerninja: try: cat /etc/issue02:30
powerninjasorry xenial, Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS02:31
powerninjarunning on AWS EC2 instances02:31
lotuspsychjeunattended upgrades is also enabled by default now on xenial right?02:34
powerninjaI see the following in the logs /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log,  https://hastebin.com/valoberijo.cs02:34
powerninjaDoes that mean I need to run the sudo apt update next?02:35
RudyValenciaIs there a way to set up SSH/SFTP to only show a specific directory to a user and not allow them to traverse above it?02:35

RudyValenciabut then they could still go up even to / and traverse into system stuff02:36
lotuspsychjepowerninja: check your software&sources to see how your updates are managed02:36
powerninjalotuspsychje, do you mean the repos configs? Thanks02:37
RudyValenciae.g. user alice can still access /bin although it's read-only02:37
SlidingHornRudyValencia: https://superuser.com/a/370955  - old, but should be helpful02:37
lotuspsychjepowerninja: no, software&updates/tab updates and check how your updates are enabled02:38
RudyValenciaSlidingHorn: so I'd have to do that for each user?02:38
powerninjaOh not using gui, how would i check via cli? Thanks02:39
TJ-lotuspsychje: it's AWS EC2 so presumably no GUI02:39
SlidingHornRudyValencia: I believe  it said you can list the users one-per line...I already closed the tab02:39
RudyValenciathat would block root from administering the server though02:39
RudyValenciawait no02:39
RudyValencianevermind it wouldn't02:39
powerninjayep, :) no gui, trying to figureout what's the best way to run weekly Ubuntu security updates and bake the AMIs, thanks02:39
RudyValenciabecause root wouldn't be listed02:40
TJ-powerninja: /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*} for the archive URLs, /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades for the u-u configuration02:40
lotuspsychjepowerninja: are you on server?02:41
RudyValenciaI don't know what Plesk does but it at least gives the user a semi-working SSH02:41
powerninjaThis is what's on /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades , https://hastebin.com/eheraxehiw.php02:41
TJ-powerninja: the update runs daily via /lib/systemd/system/apt-daily-upgrade.timer02:41
powerninjaLotus, yes on server running in AWS infrastructure.02:42
powerninjahere's the results from  cat /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*} , https://hastebin.com/asumixipeg.shell02:45
RudyValenciait looks like it chroots the user somehow02:46
powerninjaI think I disabled the daily updates,02:48
powerninjaI want to manually trigger the u-u updates, would sudo unattended-upgrade force the u-u updates? My main concern are  security updates. thanks02:50
TJ-RudyValencia: in sshd_config you'd add a Match block that matches the user(s) and sets ChrootDirectory02:51
TJ-powerninja: yes02:51
TJ-powerninja: it won't do a manual "apt update" though (which fetches the latest package list) so you'd need to do that yourself02:51
tomreynpowerninja: it has a dry-run and a debug option, too, in case you want to see what it does exactly02:52
powerninjaTJ yeah, OK I'm only running security updates and not updates, so I'll need to run apt update manually, got it. I also saw from logging in. the following messages.02:52
powerninja   initial login messages from ubuntu server https://hastebin.com/uxamotiduk.js02:53
powerninjaHi tomreyn, OK, so there's --dry-run and --debug options with apt update? thanks02:54
powerninjaOK, I will also try with "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade"  to upgrade all packages03:01
themysticgeekI have a server machine on the same network as mine with which I used to connect with an IP address.04:06
themysticgeekHowever due to some memory issues the machine restarted and possibly now has another IP address. I am unaware of this new ip address and thus I am unable to log in into this server.04:06

themysticgeek1. Somehow when i connect a display to this machine nothing comes up as it is not possibly running X11.04:07

maumssh IP:port05:39
tomreynExmix: you can do it post install now, but i assume it is a LOT easier if you do it during installation. in fact i have never done it post-installation.#05:40
tomreynmaum: "ssh 123.123.123:22" is not the right format.05:41
maumyes 22 is working05:41
tomreynmaum: you cany do "ssh -p 22"05:41
maumyes it is working05:41
tomreynor just "ssh" since port 22 is default05:41
ExmixWould you know of any ways how? :X Or point me in the right direction if possible :)05:42
maumI added port forwarding in VM. ->
tomreynExmix: cryptsetup-reencrypt, it is a command and comes with a man page05:42
ExmixPerfect. Thank you05:43
tomreyngood luck!05:44
tomreynmaum: disable this port forwarding, then try to just ssh to
tomreynmaum: thats from the computer where virtualbox runs05:45
maumtomreyn: I disabled the port forwarding option in VM and tried ssh to and it is working05:47
maumit just access denied05:48
maumit is not VM05:48
maumthe windows computer I think05:48
tomreynmaum: do you also run an ssh server on the virtualbox host?05:50
tomreynmaum: does "tail -f /var/log/auth.log" on the VM now show a connection attempt?05:51
maumfailed to activate service org.bluez : time out05:52
tomreynmaum: that's not ssh, is there nothing on ssh there?05:53
carb0nlotuspsychje, did you take a look?05:55
tomreynmaum: i confirm this is not working05:55
maumyes. I disabled the port forwarding.05:56
tomreynmaum: but you still get to a login on, this should not happen if you're not running an ssh server. apparently you don't know exactly how your network and services are configured.05:57
tomreynmaum: i'm afraid i cannot help.05:57
lotuspsychjecarb0n: did you paste your logs to me?05:57
maumtomreyn: there is ssh on windows and the putty terminal tries to connect the windows ssh I think06:02
NorthwestVeganmaum, try to use bridged adapter in your virtualbox network config06:03
NorthwestVeganand let your LAN give it an address thru dhcp, or set a static one in ubuntu06:04
Glaceon_hey y'all, i'm having some trouble with my headphone jack. it doesn't work- only speakers and bluetooth headphones work. volume control doesn't recognize it as an output. i'm dualbooting windows 10 and ubuntu 18.04.1 on a thinkpad e48006:05
IcemanV9maum: then, you need to ssh to VM ip address, not (localhost on host os - Windows)06:05
lotuspsychje!sound | Glaceon_ start here06:05
ubottuGlaceon_ start here: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.06:05
maumIcemanV9: but it stuck06:06
Quozli'm in a do-release-upgrade for a remote headless 16.04 to 18.04 upgrade, and postgres is failing to upgrade because systemd is not responding, in another shell systemctl gives "Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory".  any ideas?06:06
maumfrom windows cmd terminal to VM Ubuntu virtual ip06:06
IcemanV9maum: is it VM set in bridged adapter network as NorthwestVegan mentioned earlier??06:07
maumyes it is bridged adapter06:10
maumssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out06:10
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: I read through those links and it seems like those are for all sounds / speakers not working, which isn't the issue I'm having. My speakers are fine, but my headphone jack isn't.06:11
IcemanV9maum: is ssh-server installed in ubuntu VM?06:11
NorthwestVeganis your home lan?06:11
maumIcemanV9: yes06:12
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: try pavucontrol maybe as a test06:12
Glaceon_Also, http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin seems to be a dead link.06:12
maumNorthwestVegan: it is virtual ip on VM Ubuntu06:12
NorthwestVegansorry, i mean is your windows IP adress 10.0.2.*06:12
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: what am i testing with pavucontrol?06:12
maumNorthwestVegan: it isn't06:13
Glaceon_Sorry, I'm not very experienced06:13
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: see if you can make your jack work there06:13
NorthwestVeganwhats your win IP?06:13
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: I think I've exhausted all options in pavucontrol.06:13
NorthwestVeganoh you arent on a LAN?06:13
maumI am on the LAN06:14
Glaceon_On the output screen, it doesn't show any option other than speakers06:14
NorthwestVeganthat looks like a WAN ip to me maum06:15
maumNorthwestVegan: I am in company06:16
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: does sudo lshw -C sound show your driver= loaded at bottom?06:16
IcemanV9maum: hmm. it should be 192.168.*.* (home) OR are you at work/school (150.183.*.*)?06:16
IcemanV9nvm, you just answered it. it's work06:17
maumI am at work06:17
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: configuration: driver=snd_hda_intel latency=6406:17
NorthwestVeganis 150.183 in the reservefd ranges?06:17
maumNorthwestVegan: don't know06:17
IcemanV9maum: VM ip should be created based on 150.183.*.* something06:17
NorthwestVeganmaybe doing a bridged config wont work so easily as i was hoping, im not sure how youre company does its net06:18
maumIcemanV9: yes bridged network seems not work at company. but NAT option I was doing well previously by port forwarding06:19
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: looks good there06:19
maumat that time, on windows, there isn't ssh06:19
NorthwestVeganwhy dont you try to setup the port forward differently06:21
NorthwestVeganliie -> VMIP:2206:21
maumok I will try it06:21
maumCould not create directory '/home/admin/.ssh'. no kex alg06:23
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: any errors when you tail -f /var/log/syslog and plugin jack?06:23
NorthwestVegancould be bad permissions in your home folder there06:24
NorthwestVeganbut at least you are getting to the ssh service noe maum!06:24
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: as far as I can tell, nothing happens at all06:24
maumNorthwestVegan: -> is now working06:24
NorthwestVeganno problem06:25

amazoniantoadI'm trying to setup a vpn server and I wanted it to listen for connections on localhost only. I'm in server.conf and there's the line, ";local a.b.c.d" is all I need to do is to uncomment this line and then change it to ,"local" to do this?06:26

lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: feel free to share in a pastebin06:36
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: https://pastebin.com/we3WMA8906:38
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: are you using amdgpu from default, or did you install drivers yourself?06:41
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: I believe I'm using the default?06:42
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: this looks suspicious: snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1f.3: Unstable LPIB (65536 >= 32768); disabling LPIB delay counting06:44
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: and alot of acpi errors and amdgpu also06:45
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: is your system up to date please?06:45
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: I believe so? When I booted earlier today, it updated06:46
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: you could try a few tests, like updating bios & acpi commands at boot, and try the amdgpu driver from amd install06:48
lotuspsychje!acpi | Glaceon_06:48
ubottuGlaceon_: to debug ACPI issues on ubuntu make sure your bios is up to date and follow the procedure here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI06:48

Glaceon_lotuspsychje: looks like anything else I should try is going to take a bit longer than I have at the moment, unfortunately06:57
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: thanks for all your help tonight though!06:57
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: did your jack work on any other ubuntu version before?07:00
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: my memory's hazy, but i don't believe so07:01
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: another thing to try, is testing your jack on a liveusb07:03
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: sorry, but i'm not sure what that means, could you elaborate a little?07:04
lotuspsychjeGlaceon_: meaning, booting an ubuntu liveusb on an usb stick and 'try ubuntu' instead of installing, to test your jack output07:07
Glaceon_lotuspsychje: Oh, I see. I think I can do that later.07:09
Glaceon_at any rate I really must leave now07:09

I have an SD by Samsung that turned broken - it forced itself into readonly mode and cannot be formated (nor can anything on it be overwritten or deleted) I want to claim warranty but the card has sensitive data on it - is there any way to force the card out of the failsafe mode and let me overwrite the data?10:08

TJ-interrobangd2: the reaon is, the parent shell (the one you call the bash command from) will expand all variables inside double-quotes before passing the string to the bash command14:10
TJ-interrobangd2: Use single-quotes bash -c ' ...'  and it will work because the shell doens't expand variables inside those14:11

Sven_vBany ideas what snapd might be doing? it randomly started eating all my CPUs and RAM, system load is at 4014:33
Sven_vBI can't even remember installing it14:34
pragmaticenigmaIt's isntalled by default, and is home to several Gnome desktop applications like calculator14:34
pragmaticenigmaDoes a reboot of the system clear up the issue or does it immediately start ramping up right away?14:35
Sven_vBcan't try that atm14:35
Sven_vBlooks like I'll need a new calculator then14:35
pragmaticenigmaI recommend the TI-83... good and trusty :-P14:35
Sven_vBI finally managed to kill -KILL snapd and mask it. gnome-calculator still seems to work. (using xenial)14:36
Sven_vBoh no. seems snapd started again albeit being masked14:37
pragmaticenigmasnapd is a daemon process, it should be running as it is hosting snap applications.14:37
Sven_vBI'd rather try to live without snap apps than risk having yet another timebomb sitting around. udisksd is bad enough.14:38
pragmaticenigmaI don't know if you can completely remove it... gnome-calc was just one of the modules I know installs as a snap by default14:39
Sven_vBaptitude thinks I can "purge snapd ubuntu-core-launcher" w/o even touching gnome-calculator. let's try.14:41
pragmaticenigmagood luck :-)14:43
Sven_vBnice, gc runs and no snapd!14:43
Sven_vBI guess if any other app would have required snapd, aptitude would have told me, right?14:44

TJ-Sven_vB: hmmm, let ne do some digging, it'd usually be /var/log/syslog unless it is logging to a separate file14:58

TJ-Sven_vB: I don't see any open bugs that talk about execessive CPU usage15:04
lotuspsychjeBadr_: can you explain a bit what your end goal is, volunteers might be a better help this way15:05
TJ-Sven_vB: but as you also report a similar issue with snapd, I'd suspect it is caused by the motherboard/CPU combination; possibly due to idle state handling which we do see from time to time15:05
TJ-Sven_vB: can you show us "dmesg | pastebinit"15:06
Sven_vBTJ-, actually with udisksd I never found signs of high CPU load. just system load shoots through the roof but neither CPU use, RAM use or iotop looked suspicious. it's a mystery to me.15:06
TJ-Sven_vB: you mean loadavg ?15:06
TJ-Sven_vB: well that is OK, the loadavg is just the number of runnable tasks (tasks not sleeping or waiting or otherwise unavailable)15:07
Sven_vBsnapd I won't investigate until I find an app that needs it. until then I'll just steer clear of snapd.15:07

I followed http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/fixing-a-bug.html and got as far as building .deb's that appear to install perfectly.

nbusronetomreyn : in what condition system did not boot in uefi ?15:53

nbusronetomreyn : installing dual boot as win7 first and later with 18.04 on a ssd15:57

javaJakelotuspsychje: of course :) I take responsibility for any ways the .deb breaks the system. I expect, given the simplicity of the patch, that it'll only break Wine. I'm trying to use Ubuntu's build tools as much as possible to stay as close to vanilla Ubuntu as I can.16:29
lotuspsychjejavaJake: what is it exactly you trying to build? maybe volunteers might know alternates16:30
javaJakelotuspsychje: I am trying to build Wine with a patch applied.16:30
lotuspsychjejavaJake: to achieve what?16:30
javaJakeI get a perfectly usable build of Wine but it only comes with 64-bit support. The build Ubuntu uses is multi-arch and also has "WOW64" enabled in the 64-bit version. I'm not sure how to achieve that.16:31
tomreynjavaJake: i think the question is "why are you trying to build your own instead of using the one ubuntu provides?"16:32
javaJakelotuspsychje: to run a Windows VoIP app that Ubuntu has no alternative for.16:32
lotuspsychjejavaJake: should that not be a bug against wine then instead?16:32
javaJakeUbuntu and Wine both suffer from the same bug that's currently unresolved but has a workaround that supposedly works.16:33

pragmaticenigmajavaJake: What "Windows VoIP" app is not working? that is incredibly vague.16:33
javaJakepragmaticenigma: yes :) it is vague. It is Windows software I'd like to try to run on Ubuntu and it has no known Linux analogue.16:34
pragmaticenigmajavaJake: Also, tell us what this bug is, and whatever work around you found to work. There are a lot of very smart people in here that are willing to help, we just need all the details you can provide us.16:34
pragmaticenigmajavaJake: You would be surprised at what people here know and have experience with. The more information about the application may lead to someone with previous experience with it.16:34
javaJakeAlright, let me repeat my question. I'll give y'all specifics but the specifics are tangential to my question. I'd like to patch this bug: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41703 with this workaround: https://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=58819 via a process similar to this: http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/fixing-a-bug.html ; the goal is to build a set of wine .deb's that patch the vanilla Ubuntu16:37
javaJake.deb's with the linked patch compiled in. I have succeeded, except that the version of Wine I get only runs 64-bit software. The vanilla Ubuntu 64-bit build is able to run 32-bit via a "WOW64" translation, and Ubuntu also provides native 32-bit builds. I don't understand how to accomplish this multi-arch build, or enable "WOW64" translation in the 64-bit build. I had assumed using the pbuilder-dist process I16:37

strangerri have some ubuntu systems using ldap authentication. a system running 14.04 has almost no latency when authenticating, but another system running 18.04 always takes 14 seconds to finish logging in: first it displays /etc/motd, and then hangs for 14 seconds. i can't tell what is causing it to hang. have any of you encountered this problem on 18.04 or maybe 16.04?17:36
strangerrnote that the system does not hang when logging in with a local user17:37
TJ-strangerr: some script triggered in /etc/update-motd.d/ most likely17:37
TJ-strangerr: you can test by disabling update-motd17:38

sven_maybe a strange problem but i have ubuntu server 18.04LTS running but no netplan.17:56
tewardsven_: it is possible to have 18.04 with the older ifupdown stuff, maybe you have that in play.17:57
tewardsven_: does the thing not work or...?17:57
sven_it does work but will this give a problem with the next update?17:58
pragmaticenigmasven_: Was this 18.04 installed from an update from 16.04?17:59
pragmaticenigmaI think I recall in the documentation that existing network configurations weren't changed with the upgrade path from 16.04 to 18.04.18:00
sven_ok, but with the next lts update it will not give a problem?18:01
pragmaticenigmasven_: it might be a question to ask in the #ubuntu-server channel though.18:01
pragmaticenigmasven_: Ubuntu does a check before upgrading any version. If something is not going to work with the upgrade, it won't install unless you force it to18:01
sven_i did not know ther was a channel for the server. but if it's not a problem it does not need more time from the support18:02
sven_thanks for the support18:02
pragmaticenigmasven_: It's part of the same areas that warn you that you're PPAs will be disabled and those packages from them will be uninstalled or downgraded to the version avaialble in the Ubuntu repos18:02
pragmaticenigmasven_: when I have packages installed that are no longer available, Ubuntu has prompted me to continue... it's not a in your face type warning, and it will have a long list of packages that you have to sift through to verify18:03
sven_Hmmm, can i add netplan to it?18:04
pragmaticenigmasven_: I'm sure you can, though it may get complicated... That's probably where #ubuntu-server channel will come in handy18:06
sven_ok i will try, thanks18:07

anikrasThey configure SAML protocol to authentication18:26
pragmaticenigmaanikras: Thunderbird currently has a request to add SAML support. With Mozilla's renewed interest in Thunderbird, I believe it's possible with in the near future the ability will be there. If the company does not allow for IMAP, it is unlikely that any product other than the Office 365 web, phone app, or native Outlook clients will be able to connect18:36

sayican someone confirm if squid package for ubuntu18.04 supports SSL/ HTPPS?18:39
pragmaticenigmaanikras: You might want to check with the company policy. In most cases when I see SAML only, it's because the company want's to ensure their sensitive e-mails can be removed quickly from remote clients.18:40
pragmaticenigmaanikras: that is to say. your employer may not want you accessing their e-mail except through authorized applications.18:40
anikrasbut I can access via online from every where18:41
anikrasbut I understand this position18:41
pragmaticenigmasayi: all documenation regarding squid is found here: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/squid.html.en18:42
pragmaticenigmaanikras: Yes, through the website, but if the company wants to cut access, they can quickly do so without risk of those messages being available to the user after the fact.18:43
nicomachusis there a central place where all of the top panel status idicators sit? a directory for it or something? ProtonMail Bridge puts a status indicator into my top panel that I'd like to remove somehow. Or at least change the icon to a transparent onee, if I can find it.18:43
pragmaticenigmaanikras: the point I'm trying to make here is, you really should be talking to your company IT department about installing software and getting access. They are the most knowledgable about your systems and company policies. Best to ask them.18:44

fribtomreyn, I cannot install a package despite no errors being shown during the run of those commands20:03
frib(a package from the ppa)20:03
tomreynfrib: why not / what happens whenyou try? which ubuntu release do you run, have you verified that this PPA provides this package for your ubuntu release?20:04

OerHeksthe last post on https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/05/enable-nautilus-type-ahead-search-ubuntu, scroll to the end,..20:04
fribi dont want search-as-you type so if I understand correctly I dont need "tracker"20:05
fribtomreyn, the package I'm trying to install (nautilus-typeahead) simply does not show up in autocompletion / is not found when used explicitly20:05
fribtomreyn, 180.04 LTS. I do not know how to verify that but it seems obvious20:06
tomreynfrib: there is no package by the name of "nautilus-typeahead" provided by this ppa for 18.04 LTS20:06
fribI see -- it simply replaces the original nautilus package?20:07
OerHeksit is just a replacement nautilus20:07

tomreynit's the same package version as ubuntu's. if these packages have the same priority, i don't think it is defined which one will be installed20:08
fribthey say to restart nautilus with -r , but nautilus doesn't recognize this command20:08
tomreynfrib: this 'r' refers to pressing alt-f2, typing r, pressing enter20:09
Sven_vBI'd like to hijack a program's file system access and modify the paths of some files because I have my own opinion about where they should reside. what's the easiest approach? do I need to learn about LD_PRELOAD?20:09
tomreynfrib: apt-cache policy nautilus | pastebinit20:09
Sven_vBto be more precise, I'd like to switch locations based on the initial working directory, to use a per-project config in a 3rd party program that only knows about its global config.20:10
tomreynfrib: so that's the problem. both packages are the same version, both have the same priority (500). if you want to prefer the one from the ppa you'll need to do apt pinning20:10
ubottupinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto20:11
tomreynSven_vB: you could rebuild it from source, or run it in a chroot.20:12
fribtomreyn, that doc says to edit /etc/apt/apt.conf unless you're on intrepid but I don't have /etc/apt/apt.conf and I'm not on intrepid20:14
Sven_vBtomreyn, indeed, I'm trying to evade the effort of rebuilding it in each future version. with a chroot I'd need lots of bind mounts.20:14
Sven_vBmaybe with overlayfs, but still ugly in the mount list. I'd prefer an approach that would be mostly invisible to other programs, i.e. not disturb global system state.20:15
[bma]Hi - I'm having a rather troublesome configuration issue with AMD RocM on ubuntu - however I don't think the issue itself is RocM related - I believe it's something to do with the eGPU.20:24
TJ-Sven_vB: maybe execute it via systemd-nspawn, use a read-only mapping of the real root-fs, and attach a writable bind-mount or tmpfs where the program writes to20:24
[bma]I have an iMac, running 18.04 (clean install/updated). If I connect my eGPU breakout box with the GPU disconnected, it boots fine. If I boot with the GPU (Vega Frontier) connected, I get a message saying "a start job is running for detect the available gpus" -- and it just hangs there. If I boot without the eGPU and hotplug it, I get a hard crash (as in, down to the mouse cursor freezing up)20:25
[bma]Any suggestions on where to start? Nothing obvious in the boot logs of gpu_manager20:26
[bma]There are 2 GPUs connected - an RX 580 internally (which works fine without the eGPU connected) and the Vega Frontier via a TB3 enclosure20:28
pragmaticenigma[bma]: Going to go on limb here and say... it's apple, there are so many things they do to prevent Linux on their machines20:28
pragmaticenigmamore likely [bma] ... you're on the bleeding edge of newer hardware features that just haven't reached full support yet20:29
[bma]@pragmaticenigma as much as I agree about apple ;) - everything except the egpu works perfectly - there seems to be an issue with Ubuntu and the eGPU which should work...20:29
Sven_vBTJ-, sounds interesting. thanks for the idea!20:30
[bma]There are reports of the enclosure working OOTB with other GPUs, and vega frontier isn't an unknown card to ubuntu - so I just can't figure out why it's not having it :/20:30
pragmaticenigmathe first thing that showed up from my search was reference to ubuntu 12... but that was back when USB 3 was just coming about. If this is a USB-C... there is so much bridging between PCI bus and other functions, it could be anything. Does the enclosure work with other cards?20:31
TJ-[bma]: first thing I'd ask is - have you tested the latest v4.20 kernel with it?20:32
fribtomreyn, I tried pinning this way: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/ZpX46p59SX/ but apt-cache policy sets all of them to -10? http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/THsFdkpjpv/20:33
tomreynfrib: what doesn't exist can be created, apt pinning configurations should go into a new file in  /etc/apt/preferences.d/ though.20:33
repzhi there, does someone know if there is any support for 06cb:009a fingerprint ? (x1c6) I can't find anything but I do hope I did a bad research.20:34
leftyfbrepz: huh?20:34
OerHeksrepz, only the devices on https://launchpad.net/~fingerprint/+archive/ubuntu/fingerprint-gui are supported AFAIK20:34
tomreynfrib: the first configuration you make there applies to both origins, so yes.20:35
fribhow do I fix it?20:35
repzYep also, afaik but I have some hope20:35
fribalso should the / -> - ?20:35
frib(for the ppa)?20:35
TJ-repz: I don't see any module claiming that ID up to Linux v4.2020:35
fribtomreyn, also should the first config only apply to bionic since it says n=bionic?20:36
tomreynfrib: i'm not sure what you're asking. i would not set the default package' priority to something negative, it just needs to be lower than that of the ppa.20:36
fribok that's fine I can make it positive but the ppa priority is still not registering, why?20:37
tomreynfrib: debugging apt pinning is somewhat cumbersome and i'm not too interested to spend much time on it.20:37
fribwell I dont know anything about it20:38
tomreynthere is apt_preferences(5)20:38
OerHeksrepz, there * was a project running, but discontinued https://github.com/nmikhailov/Validity9020:38
repzOerHeks, yep, that's the only thing i found20:38
repzI ws so happy to have a brand new x1c6 but r1p20:38

IniGitpragmaticenigma: How does it find the device?23:13
pragmaticenigmaIniGit: It searches through /etc/mtab /etc/fstab and /proc/self/mountinfo23:14
pragmaticenigmaIniGit: Though one thing to note, in the man page is this important paragraph: free space at the start23:14
pragmaticenigmaoops... copy paste fail23:15
pragmaticenigmaThe umount command detaches the file system(s) mentioned from the file hierarchy. A file system is specified by giving the directory where it has been mounted. Giving the special device on which the file system lives may also work, but is obsolete, mainly because it will fail in case this device was mounted on more than one directory.23:15
pragmaticenigmaIniGit: The last sentence explains that you can use device ids, but because it can be mounted into multiple directories, this isn't recommended23:15
voiwhy sudo sh -c "iptables-save > /etc/iptables.ipv4.nat" and not just: sudo iptables-save > /etc/iptables.ipv4.nat ?23:17
IniGitpragmaticenigma: ok23:17
IniGitthank you23:17
tewardvoi: because the `> /etc/iptables.ipv4.nat` part doesn't get 'sudo' applied to it23:18
tewardvoi: sudo only applies to the first command and arguments passed into it23:19
tewardvoi: which is why `sudo iptables-save` works, but not the directing of the output into a file23:19
voiteward, thanks. is there no easier way?23:19
tewardvoi: no there is not.23:20
tewardthough not sure why you're writing to /etc/iptables.ipv4.nat because that's not a typical file in Ubuntu23:20
tewardnor is that where `iptables-persistent` or other inbuilt firewall tools refer to23:20
voiteward, https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-wifi-bridge/ step 1523:21
EriC^^voi: you could do "echo something | sudo tee /file"23:23
EriC^^and | sudo tee -a /file   for appending23:23
tewardwell there is what EriC^^ specified yes.23:23
tewardvoi: not sure that you're using Ubuntu in that setup23:24

IniGitwhen I do mount and on the next line in my bash script umount I get an error:23:46
IniGitumount: /mnt/gernot/DevLinuxBackup: target is busy.23:46
IniGitumount failed23:46
IniGitWhen I do sleep in between it works23:47
IniGitHow do I know if mount is finished without sleep?23:47
EriC^^IniGit: you could do something like mount .... && umount23:47
EriC^^that way it'll run after it finishes and only if it returns successfully23:48
tomreynyou may want to "sync"23:49
IniGitEriC^^: thx, but in the real script I want to do something in between23:50
IniGitthinking error23:50
EriC^^IniGit: sure, it's an example23:50
EriC^^hi badr_23:51
IniGitEriC^^: But why does it not run synchroniously without && ?23:51
badr_sorry delayed23:52
badr_this is the report of repair boot complet23:53
badr_Boot successfully repaired.  Please write on a paper the following URL: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Zv8kVgd3BY/   In case you still experience boot problem, indicate this URL to: boot.repair@gmail.com or to your favorite support forum.  You can now reboot your computer.   The boot files of [Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS] are far from the start of the disk. Your BIOS may not detect them. You may want to retry after creating a /boot partition (EXT4,23:53
EriC^^IniGit: i suspect something else is wrong, maybe show part of the script, you're right, mount something; umount should run after mount finishes23:53
EriC^^badr_: type "sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt"23:53
IniGitEriC^^: Now everything works fine. Idk why but it just threw the error one time23:54
IniGitMaybe the external drive was in some sleep mode or so23:54
badr_and what?23:54
EriC^^IniGit: maybe whatever you did in the middle was still affecting it23:55
IniGitoh now I get the error again. Can i post the script here (multiple lines) ?23:55
EriC^^!paste | IniGit23:55
ubottuIniGit: For posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use https://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use https://imgur.com/ !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.23:55
EriC^^badr_: then type "for i in /dev /sys /proc; do sudo mount -R /mnt /mnt$i; done"23:55
badr_yes i  i did23:58
ubottupastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit23:58
EriC^^badr_: type "sudo chroot /mnt"23:59
