efloidhello, i'm struggling to configure a simple bridge under netplan for ubuntu 18.0400:07
efloidi add the stanza for the bridge to the .yaml file but when i reboot the network is broken: i cannot ping anything other than the gateway, indicating a problem with the default route00:08
efloidip r  shows that there are two default routes, one for the eno1 adapter and one for br000:08
efloidi have researched numerous examples online and basically none of them work00:09
efloidto add more confusion, it looks like libvirt was also setting up its own bridge device, outside of netplan.  i deleted it to keep things simple.00:10
efloidbut it just seems like networking is a mess!00:10
efloidwhy would libvirt not simply use netplan to create a bridge?  instead it has its own convoluted config00:10
BrianBlazewhat does your route -n look like?00:11
efloidmy system doesn't have route installed.  this is ubuntu server00:13
efloidiprotue2 supercedes route and other tools00:13
BrianBlazeweird I have it on all my ubuntu installs. but you are right it says the same thing :)00:17
leonardusWhen I turn my second monitor off, I want all the windows that were previously on that monitor to move to an available monitor00:35
leonardusHow do I make it do that?00:35
=== Guest96_ is now known as shaggysi0
OerHeksleonardus, press winkey winkey, and the left bar should appear, with all desktops, and you can drag them to an active desktop00:43
leonardusyeah but I want it to do that automatically00:45
lotuspsychjeleonardus: i think when a screen is not joining the game, you need to let ubuntu know00:48
subcoolminor help, i have installed kernel 4.19 & headers. But, when i boot- im still running 4.1800:49
lotuspsychjesubcool: did you use the !mainline method?00:50
subcoolsudo apt install linux-(blah)00:51
subcoolalso did a dist-upgrade00:51
OerHeksthere is no .19 in the repos.00:52
Deihmosi just installed ubuntu and installed sonarr radarr and plex but none can see my usb drive00:53
Deihmosi can access the usb drive fine from the desktop but none of the apps can see it00:53
OerHeksIs that the plex snap?00:57
Deihmosby default why can't these apps access the usb drive00:58
Deihmosusb drive is ntfs00:59
OerHeksthat might be the culprit, not a posix filesystem to get permissions to01:06

leonardusoh. When I turn my second monitor off, Ubuntu still seems to think it's there. I can move my mouse to it.01:14
leonardusis this a bug?01:14
lotuspsychjeleonardus: no, the user is the boss of the system01:14
=== RtMF is now known as QuinnStorm
lotuspsychjeleonardus: you need to let ubuntu know you use 1 screen01:14
leonardusshouldn't it know that when it stops receiving a signal from the second monitor though?01:15
OerHeksbasicly, no01:16
lotuspsychjeleonardus: not everything is automatic, for example when you choose hdmi audio on external tv, you also need to change back after01:16
leonardusit should know how many screens are connected at any given time right? when it boots up it has to figure that out at some point01:16
OerHeksthen i would have no desktop left when i keep my machine running, with monitors off01:16
lotuspsychjeleonardus: a logout or reboot can also do some magic01:20

xubertok, I took a look over raspi pages on how they create bootable sdcards but to be honest my head hurt after that, that is, i think its a bit over my head.11:02
nuxilno one said it be easy ;)11:03
xubertnuxil: thanks though, I dont mean to sound ungrateful11:03
nuxili get you.. it a bit much technical stuff11:04
xubertvery truen. But what is still killing me is, why isnt it working to install directly to a USB drive? It seems that, using the included installer, I should be able to install to "another drive" (in this case a usb flash) and use it11:04
SimonNLSeTunTun: https://askubuntu.com/questions/363288/how-can-i-read-gsettings-values-from-a-filesystem-backup/368160#368160      check this out11:04
xubertAnd I have *installed* it to a usb drive, but then the install i did was not bootable.11:05
xubertI could have sworn there was a way to make a drive "bootable" with fdisk but haven't found it yet (maybe because I am not remembering things correctly)11:06
nuxilxubert, you did set correct boot disk in bios? or in disk boot menu whne you start pc?11:06
nuxilusaly F8 or something when pc starts11:06
irafi'm having a problem with my tab autocpmpletion!!!  also the arrow keys are not working in terminal.. anyone??  arrow keys just print values like ^[[A instead of actually moving cursor, or showing command history.11:07
vltiraf: Where did you read "xterminal"?11:08
EriC^^iraf: type "ps -p $$"11:08
EriC^^xubert: are you trying to boot in uefi mode or legacy?11:08

irafvlt, `11:10
xubertnuxil: yes, of that I am sure. I did (F12 on my comp) and got to the boot menu, where, among other things was the option to boot my usb drive11:10
EriC^^iraf: you're not using bash, maybe there's a setting for csh you need to set11:10
xubertEriC^^: to be honest I still dont wholly understand that part of things11:10
EriC^^iraf: try typing "bash" and see if autocomplete works i guess11:10
nuxilxubert, ok..11:10
EriC^^xubert: type "sudo parted -ls" with the usb plugged in and paste in a pastebin11:11
xubertEriC^^: Would booting UFEI be something I set on the USB installation or a bios thing?11:11
nuxilEriC^^, hes trying to make a independend OS on a usb stick. much like how rapsberry does it with their sdcard11:11
irafvlt, thank youuuu its working11:11
EriC^^xubert: BIOS, but you need to have the proper settings/bootloader on the usb11:11
xubertEriC^^: ok, well I am pretty sure UFEI in my bios. Does it help, information wise, that I am able to boot various pre-made live distros just fine?11:12
irafEriC^^,  thank youu11:12
EriC^^xubert: sort of11:13
irafEriC^^,  its working now.. thank u very much11:13
EriC^^iraf: no problem, glad it's working11:13
irafEriC^^,  :)11:13
xubertEriC^^: I booted back into windows so I cant do the parted thing at the moment, will need to reboot into the xubuntu live copy I have. In the meantime, this might give some of the info you were asking about regarding parted output https://pasteboard.co/HXlRL7X.png11:14
EriC^^xubert: the usb is the 30gb one?11:14
irafEriC^^, between how can i set bash terminal as my default terminal11:15
xubertEriC^^: yes11:15
SeTunTunready! thanks a lot SimonNL11:15
EriC^^xubert: type "chsh"11:15
EriC^^sorry that wasnt for you11:15
xubertEriC^^: I noticed that the types are "gpt" and neither of the 32gb drive partitions have a "bootable" status11:15
EriC^^iraf: type "chsh" , make sure you're not calling it via ~/.bashrc or similar already11:16
EriC^^xubert: you're using gpt partition table, which is the uefi standard, you need an efi partition though to boot with uefi, but your windows seems legacy, so if you want legacy booting you need a bios-boot partition so ubuntu can use gpt+legacy, also the 2nd partition seems odd is it encrypted?11:17
xubertEriC^^: ah yes, that was one of my requirements, I wanted an lvm encrupted setup... just to comlicate things further ;)11:18
sergeantI am trying to connect to mongo shell on ubuntu 16.04 but it is always showing me this error http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/HMFQycN26d/11:19
sergeantplease help!!11:19
xubertEriC^^: ok, so regarding a bio-boot partition, is there a point in the xubuntu install that gives that option? When I installed i noticed after the fact that it was gpt but dont remember expressly specifying that during the install11:19
EriC^^xubert: it might have already been so, i guess the installer bugged out and didnt create a bios-boot partition11:20
EriC^^xubert: you could recreate the partition using fdisk from scratch and reinstall using the default settings and it should work11:21
xubertEriC^^: ok, will give that a try. btw, Is that something that I can just install like i did before and then change/convert with something like say gparted?11:21
EriC^^xubert: not sure what you mean, you mean to convert the install as is? without reinstallation?11:22
xubertEriC^^: well convert the partition from gpt to bios or whatever using gparted11:23
EriC^^xubert: sure fdisk/gdisk can do that i think, under expert or transformation menu11:23
xubertEriC^^: I am pretty sure I noticed before the option to convert something to something within gparted, can't remember what exactly though11:23
EriC^^sudo fdisk /dev/sdX and follow the menu11:23
EriC^^ah, i dont know, i've barely used gparted tbh11:24
egraincan i just use .deb files meant for debian in ubuntu?11:24
EriC^^egrain: the saying goes, "if you have to ask, then probably it's a bad idea"11:24

BluesKajHowdy all12:31
LachezarHey all. In Ubuntu Server 18.04 docker is a "snap". How do I do "... --volume /path:/mount ..." in such environment?12:35
LachezarI need to specify a volume to be in a dedicated disk/partition mounted in the host.12:35
blackflowLachezar: docker.io is also an apt package, you're not forced to use the snap12:37
Lachezarblackflow: Eh, that's what the ubuntu server does with the default installation.12:38
LachezarHow can I mount a (bind-mount) a directtory on the host to be accessible within the snap?12:38
blackflowLachezar: not sure what you mean? docker is not installed by default afaik12:39
Lachezarblackflow: When installing Ubuntu Server there is a menu for additional services. Tick 'docker' and you get a docker-on-a-snap12:39
blackflowI otherwise don't know the answer to your actual question, to me that's a conflict of interest, one containerization tool is being containerized itself, well.....yeah. Just saying you're not forced to use the snap if you don't want or need to.12:40
blackflowLachezar: don't tick it then. docker is available through    apt install docker.io12:40
Lachezarblackflow: I didn't say that's smart, or rational, or whatever. That's what it is. I have no idea what went through ubuntu devs minds when they decided to install docker in a snap.12:42
Lachezarblackflow: I'm done looking for reasons or logic. I'm trying to get by with what it is.12:42
blackflowLachezar: well if that's default, you're not forced to use it, that's what I'm saying all along. you can isntall docker via apt.12:42
blackflowthat = dockeer installed via snap if you tick a checkbox during installation12:43
Lachezarblackflow: If that's what Ubuntu Installer does now, I'm going to assume that's the new norm.12:44
TJ-Lachezar: you'd be better off asking in #ubuntu-server  ... but I think the rationale is the frequent release schedule of docker vs distro package maintenance burden12:44
LachezarTJ-: Forgot about #ubuntu-server. 10x12:44
blackflowLachezar: Ubuntu devs want snaps to be used wherever possible. That however is not a norm or requirement. If for whatever reason you dislike the snap, docker.io is available as a regular package. 'sall.12:45
TJ-snaps are becoming a right pain12:45
Lachezarblackflow: Since there is a snap for docker, I can only assume the generic package will be deprecated and possibly removed later on.12:45
blackflowLachezar: not necessarily12:46
blackflowcontainerized delivery directly from vendor is not in conflict with curated, maintained package via apt repos12:46
blackflowLachezar: and if you're using the snap just because it was a default when you ticked the box, and not because you actually need it, then you're doing it wrong. save yourself the trouble and use the regular package unless you really need the snap for whatever reason (eg. newer version)12:47
LachezarTJ-: Do you happen to know if there is a snap channel? Just checking.12:47
Lachezarblackflow: You're assuming too much. I'll not be in control of the OS installation procedure always. So if I request Ubuntu+Docker, I'm required to be prepared for Ubuntu + Docker@Snap12:48
blackflowLachezar: that's false really :)   you can always  "snap remove docker && apt install docker.io", nothing prevents you from doing that. again, if this is really ONLY because some default was imposed on you, then you're doing it wrong and good luck with that :)12:50
TJ-Lachezar: what is weird is bionic-updates has 18.06 the same as the snap. The difference is there is no community support for the snap; presumably as Caonical package the snap they provide (paid) support12:50
TJ-Lachezar: did you look at the overview snapcraft.io page for docker where it notes where dockerfiles have to be?12:51
Lachezarblackflow: You still assume too much.12:51
LachezarTJ-: Taking a look at the page.12:51
TJ-!info docker.io bionic12:51
ubottudocker.io (source: docker.io): Linux container runtime. In component universe, is optional. Version 18.06.1-0ubuntu1~18.04.1 (bionic), package size 31157 kB, installed size 136518 kB12:51
blackflowLachezar: I'm not really. this is linux, not windows. you as the system admin are free to install whatever is supported (or even not supported) by the distro. all I am saying is you are not forced to use the snap in any shape or form.12:52
Lachezarblackflow: You assume again. Just 'cause I have root does *NOT* mean I'm allowed to haphazardly modify the OS.12:53
LaRose_Bleudoes anyone here know where i could get the manjaro theme for Gnome3?12:53
TJ-Lachezar: seems to be a poor way of communicating such things, in notes on the 'blurb' page, rather than in-your-face from the installed tool12:53
blackflowLachezar: then go talk to the whoever is the actual uid=0 in charge? :)12:53
LaRose_Bleuor at least a decent clone12:54
TJ-If we get anyone else like arndff reporting Intel 7265 iwlwifi issues check which firmware version they have (/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-7265-17.ucode ) - by timestamp and md5sum. There have been 2 bug-fix updates in the linux-firmware repostitory that they may not have13:13

yesihi, I am with 14.04. I'd like to upgrade to 18.04. So firstly, i must upgrade to xenial. There is 'do-release-upgrade' command but the old methode is working yet, right ?  i.e. apt-get update, apt-get upgrade , apt-get dist-upgrade, change sources.list file e.g. to xenial, then apt-get update,upgrade, full-upgrade ?13:48

Lachezartomreyn: He did say he was going the LTS upgrade route.14:06
tomreynLachezar: yes, i'm just pointing out what version numbers look like, it helps both ends if yesi knows so they can ask more precise questions in the future.14:08

zap0anyone know about how to get raw MIDI data in a C program?14:11
lotuspsychjezap0: maybe the ubuntu studio channel might know some midi tricks14:11

* Lachezar hates that he has to 'ssh-add -e /path/to/pkcs.so' even though there are no identities added!14:17
tomreynyesi: since you asked earlier about upgrading by do-release upgrade vs. unsupported methods, i should ask: how did you upgrade?14:18
asmodeushi. I upgraded to 18.04 from 16, and it seems to have sustained a driver related injury.  Long delays just moving the mouse around.  If I ssh in, it's fine, but I can't log in to the console.14:22
asmodeusHow do I tell what is now apparently XWayland to use a different driver?14:23
asmodeuslooking for the Wayland equiv of xorg.conf14:23
lotuspsychjeasmodeus: whats your graphics card chipset and driver please?14:24
asmodeuslotuspsychje: Supermicrom server motherboard, Matrox gpu, I used the mga driver for X14:25
asmodeuslotuspsychje: "Supermicro"14:25
tomreynyou run a graphical desktop on a server? why?14:25
tomreynalso 16.04 -> 18.04 upgrade would not switch to xwayland14:26
asmodeustomreyn: You raise a good question.  Ease of use for my coworkers.  I don14:28
asmodeustomreyn: You raise a good question.  Ease of use for my coworkers.  I don't know what else would have done it.  It was running Xorg, I ran the upgrade, and now it seems to be running Xwayland.14:28
tomreynasmodeus: hmm, weird, my understanding is that since it was decided that 18.04 will not default to wayland (new installations don't) the upgrader would alos not switch. that's also the experience i had when upgrading a desktop from 16.04 to 18.04. but then, maybe it'S different on your system since it's actually a server.14:30
asmodeuslotuspsychje: Matrox MGA G200eW WPCM450 to be specific14:31

asmodeuslotuspsychje: no gui, no web14:31

tomreyn!pastebinit | asmodeus14:32
ubottuasmodeus: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit14:32
asmodeustomreyn: If they could get that done, probably wouldn't need a GUI to begin with :)14:32
lotuspsychjeweird situation :p14:33
tomreynasmodeus: so they physically work on the server?14:33
tomreynasmodeus: if so, add a cheap dedicated pci graphics card to it.14:33
asmodeustomreyn: rarely, but occasionally need, and want the ability to.14:34
tomreynasmodeus: and use a less demanding desktop than gnome 314:34
tomreynalso consider installing one of the *ubuntu-desktop meta packages so that future upgrades will take into account that this is actually used as a desktop14:37
asmodeustomreyn: I was using Xfce, and I would love to continue to do so, or even fvwm is fine.  However, the mouse and keyboard lag alone prevents any useability.  I can't log in at the moment, as the login screen alone, pre-gnome, pre-xfce is unusable14:37
tomreynasmodeus: what about ssh?14:37
Lachezarasmodeus: It *might* be the supermicro console. Have you tried the IPMIView, or are you using the Web Console?14:38
asmodeustomreyn: I can ssh in with no trouble.  All fine there, and cpu/mem usage is normal14:38
tomreynasmodeus: so just install your preferred desktop from ssh, e.g. sudo apt update; sudo apt install xubuntu-desktop14:39
tomreynand remove xwayland if you prefer not to use it.14:39
lotuspsychjeasmodeus: wich desktop did you use on 16.04?14:39
tomreynbut the real solution here is to teach your collegues what a server is14:40
asmodeuslotuspsychje: http://paste.ubunutu.com/p/xJwxkHQFDs/14:40
lotuspsychjeyeah i would also start over as tomreyn suggested, start over fresh might be a good idea14:40
asmodeustomreyn: xfce14:40
asmodeustomreyn: oops14:41
asmodeuslotuspsychje: xfce14:41
lotuspsychjeasmodeus: bad url there14:41
asmodeuslotuspsychje: s/ubunutu/ubuntu/14:41
tomreynbut this doesn'treally providse more info than we already had: it's a server grpahics chipset, extremely limited, not meant to be used for running anything but the vga console.14:42
lotuspsychjei wonder why an upgrade would transfer to xwayland14:42
asmodeustomreyn: and a vga console is all I ask for14:42
tomreynasmodeus: ? youi just wrote you needed a desktop for your collegues, or did i get you wrong there?14:43
asmodeuslotuspsychje: could it have been an option that I inadvertantly agreed to by hitting <enter> on one of the many n/y questions during the upgrade?14:44
asmodeustomreyn: "and a vga console is all I ask for" + " so my collegues are ok with it"14:45
lotuspsychjeasmodeus: that could be, like choosing lightdm - gdm etc14:45
tomreynasmodeus: if " so my collegues are ok with it" is a quote from something you wrote previously, then please resend this since it only shows up in my view of this channel once now.14:46
asmodeustomreyn: no, I had not typed it previously.  I was making an addition to my previous response, and quoting the previous response seemed to be the efficient way to provide context14:49
tomreynlotuspsychje: initially, 18.04 was meant to default to xwayland, but nvidia wasn't ready, and there were other issues, too, so this was reverted. a theory i have on this is that the dist-upgrader path from 16.04 server to 18.04 *server* has not been updated to not switch from xserver-xorg to xwayland.14:52
tomreynasmodeus: ah laright, sorry you got me puzzled a bit there.14:52
tomreynasmodeus: so my understanding now is that your goal is now to not have a graphical desktop. can you confirmt his is correct?14:53
tomreynif not, please state your current goal.14:54
tomreynlotuspsychje: just a theory, i haven't tried to verify this.14:55
lotuspsychjetomreyn: sounds logical, but we would need more details about the upgrade indeed14:56
tomreynyes, we'd need to know which of the desktop / server meta packages were installed before the upgrade was initiated, since the upgrader chooses the migration path based on this.14:57
asmodeustomreyn: lotuspsychje: I wanted to try to get Xorg fired up, but i dies with "EGL_MESA_drm_image required"...any way around that?15:10
tomreynasmodeus: this suggests that what you tried to run depends on an opengl feature your version of mesa does not provide, which is probably because the hardware (graphics chipset) does not provide for this reuired minimum version of opengl.  "glxinfo -h" should list supported opengl extensions.15:13
asmodeustomreyn: I tried to run "startx"15:14
asmodeustomreyn: "glxinfo -h" prints the help text, otherwise, glxinfo just complains about not finding an X server15:16
asmodeustomreyn: "unable to open display"15:17
tomreynasmodeus: oops, i meant -B.15:17
tomreynasmodeus: since you are trying to start X i assume you do actually want to do more than just get VGA output. but i'm not going to try to help more since your goals are still blurry to me.15:18
=== jluc_ is now known as JLuc
tomreynglxinfo -B will show profiles, to get a list of supported extensions, run glxinfo without options.15:19
tomreynyou shouldn't use startx on 18.04, rather use a graphical login manager (you can choose to configure them to auto-login)15:20
asmodeustomreyn: glxinfo -B = "unable to open display"15:23
asmodeustomreyn: glxinfo = "unable to open display"15:24
tomreynasmodeus: makes sense, you don't have one until you have an X window initialized.15:24
asmodeustomreyn: how do I switch text consoles?  Usually, Alt+F2 or Alt+F3... switches consoles, but that doesn't seem to work anymore.15:25
tomreynusually Ctrl-Alt-Fn15:26
asmodeustomreyn: "doesn't seem to work anymore" refering to the newly updated 1815:26
tomreynthis hasnt changed, maybe your input is handled differently, though15:26
asmodeustomreyn: also doesn't work.  Used to be that you only needed the ctrl if you were in X.  has that changed?15:27
tomreynnot that i know of, but maybe check the !releasenotes15:27
asmodeustomreyn: looks like the console is completely frozen15:28
tomreynhmm, sad15:28

tomreynwhoops, ignore that last line ;)15:29
yesitomreyn: thanks for your return. /etc/fstab has : devce /boot ext4 noauto 0 2. Before 'do-release-upgrade' command, /boot is not mounted. No entry in /etc/mtab, neither /proc/mounts. After its failing, /boot is present in both files. The error is : mount /dev/sda1 already mounted or /boot busy, mount: according to mtab is already mounted on /boot.

asmodeustomreyn: lotuspsychje: ok, I can/will accept that niether the X nor the Wayland GUIs will work, so how do I kick whatever video mode the console is using out aswell?  Since the actual text console is unstable, how to I go back to the "good old days", with no video driver intervention at all.  Just 80x25 text, just as the BIOS intended.15:35
asmodeus"The only winning move is...not to play"15:36
tomreynyesi: what is "devce" in your fstab line?15:41
acgissuesHi tomreyn, apparently the 403 forbidden problem was because of client's fortigate configuration15:42
acgissuesFor the record15:42
yesitomreyn: s/devce/device -> a partition device15:43
tomreynacgissues: were you the one with a client's computer in central america which received 403's instead of 404's on all ubuntu mirrors, and said there was no proxy?15:43
tomreynyesi: so does it actually say "/dev/sda1" there? or something else you don't want to disclose?15:45
acgissuestomreyn: yeah. apparently i didn't have all the info about their network setup15:45
yesitomreyn: /dev/sda115:46
tomreynasmodeus: i'm not actually sure, but try "text" as a kernel / initramfs parameter.15:46
tomreynacgissues: thanks for reporting back then.15:48
asmodeustomreyn: hrm...What exactly is the "Authorization Manager15:48
tomreynasmodeus: context please15:48
asmodeustomreyn: And, any idea why it would stop there when rebooting?15:48
acgissuesnp, your help was useful too15:48
asmodeustomreyn: "Starting Authorization Manager"15:49
tomreynacgissues: you're welcome.15:49
tomreynasmodeus: this is part of policykit, according to a web search.15:49
asmodeustomreyn: Ironically, right after "Started LSB: Record successful boot for GRUB."15:50
yesiwhy can't i do with the old methode to upgrade ?15:50
yesii am stick with the /boot error. So i can't continue on...:-(15:51
* yesi is sad15:51
tomreynyesi: do you have PPAs? if so, which?15:51
tomreynyesi: or rather, which packages and package versions are installed from these.15:52
tomreynasmodeus: i don't know why the boot would stall / stop there, but have a look at your boot logs.15:52
yesitomreyn: no PPAs15:53
tomreynyesi: that's rare, can you run and show the output of https://github.com/tomreyn/scripts#foreign_packages15:54
tomreynyesi: also, is the release-upgrade still running now, did it roll back, did it fail with this error?15:55
asmodeustomreyn: ok, so now i can "Alt-F2" to the next console, but it is in a high-res text mode that is very slow scrolling.  Seems as though this version simply doesn't like this hardware.  I can't remember the last time I had to do a complete reinstall because an OS upgrade went sideways.15:55
asmodeustomreyn: I'll check back later if a reinstall doesn't work out.15:56
asmodeustomreyn: console (not ssh) locked up again15:57

asmodeustomreyn: Unfortunate that there is no way to reverse an upgrade.16:00
tomreynasmodeus: well, check the logs, purge xorg, xwayland, graphical login managers, i think you'll have a much better way solving it from there on.16:00
lotuspsychjeuzee: can we help you?16:00
asmodeustomreyn: lotuspsychje: many thanks, but I'm out of time for now.16:01
lotuspsychjeuzee: this is ubuntu support, only ubuntu questions here16:01
* asmodeus bows out16:02
uzee:) sorry I was trying to find some text from my previous chat, its all in the same window and accidentally i kept typing in the input box16:02
dserodioI'm running Bionic and have Gnome Tweak Tool installed. When I go to Tweaks > Extensions, "System monitor in user menu" is shown with a warning icon, and its tooltip shows "Error loading extension". How can I troubleshoot this and show the system monitor in the menu?16:02
uzeelotuspsychje: I understand, I was actually trying to do a kickstart install of Ubuntu which is why I came here in the first place, I understand kickstart on Ubuntu is limited in terms of features compred to RedHat/CentOS, however, I don't need anything fancy, just trying to see if I can use the minimal image to kickstart?16:04
uzeeBut when I boot into the minimal image, I don't have the F6 option to edit the boot options, esc does give me a "boot:" prompt but I have tried passing initrd and ks parameters, but no luck, I would appreciate any suggestions/advice16:05
tomreyndserodio: "journalctl -b -p4" shows warnings in your system logs since last reboot. you will likely find gnome-shell warnings or errors in there which relate to it.16:07
Youndertomreyn, journalctl isn not part of ubuntu 18.04. When I tried it yesterday it said used <deb package>16:08
TJ-Younder: journalctl is part of systemd which is the Ubuntu init system16:09
YounderI know that and It wouldt launch16:10
uzeeHi TJ: you might recall that you helped out about a month or so ago when I was trying to do a kickstart install of Ubuntu16:10
YounderTC: well it does now, sorry to have wasted your time16:11
uzeeI wanted to try that with the minimal image, do you know off hand, if that supports a ks boot parameter? I've tried to pass it, but no luck16:11
yesiYounder: http://dpaste.com/04QWTQ416:12
tomreynYounder: right, you should definitely have journalctl if you run ubuntu 18.04.16:13
=== qwebirc91233 is now known as audioproblems
TJ-uzee: I've never tried it but if there were support it'd need to be in the initrd.img, so you could extract and examine it to determine the answer16:14
yesitomreyn: i stop the job of upgrade. it fail with the /boot problem16:14
lord4163Hi. I am resizing a partition. I took 1 GB of the front and 60 GB of the back. GParted says it is copying 900 GB?16:14
tomreynyesi: i suspect you meant to post http://dpaste.com/04QWTQ4 for me?16:15
yesitomreyn: yes16:15
uzeeThanks TJ16:15
tomreynyesi: this output suggests that you have package sinstalled which are neither available in ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04, such as the linux 3.13.0 packages.16:16
TJ-lord4163: sounds like you affect 2 other partitions if using gparted, because it'll keep them contiguous16:16
tomreynyesi: those are kernel image packages of ubuntu trusty, 14.04.16:17
tomreynyesi: also some of the apt releated packages are from trusty. it so seems like a previous upgrade you did there did not succeed, or not fully.16:18
yesitomreyn: this what i'd like to do : upgrade from trusty 14.04 to xenial 16.0416:19
lord4163TJ-: There was only one partition on the drive, one big NTFS partition16:19
yesitomreyn: so right now, i stick with trusty16:19
tomreynyesi: oh, i was thinking you said you wanted to upgrade from xenial to bionic.16:19
yesitomreyn: later16:20
tomreynyesi: you said 14.04 -> 16.04, this is my mistake, sorry.16:20
tomreynyesi: so do your apt sources in /etc/apt/sources.list now point to trusty or xenial?16:21
lord4163TJ-: Do you think it will take 12 hours?16:22
panter_I have 5 firefox tabs open and nothing else. My computer is using 10 gigabytes of ram. How come?16:22
audioproblemsAre there anyone who have experienced hibernation suddenly stopped working? I think it happened as I updated my firmware on my ASUS16:23
xamithanbecause linux makes good use of ram instead of letting it sit idle16:23
audioproblems(I know my nickname doesn't match my problems, but I'm also on #alsa)16:23
TJ-lord4163: you're resizing the single NTFS file-system then. Resizing a partition is a matter of writing about 32 bytes! But rresizing a file-system inside a partition - especially if you're moving the starting position - requires a lot of work on the file-system and moving it all 'up' the drive16:23
yesiThe aim is to go to bionic, but there is still intermediare. The sources.lst point right now to xenial but before the do-release-upgrade, it was trusty16:23
tomreynpanter_: see which processes are allocating this memory, this may give a hint. top or "ps auxw" should help16:23
lord4163TJ-: But only 150 GB is in use?16:24
lord4163TJ-: So it might speed up right?16:24
TJ-lord4163: I've never used Gparted for jobs like that; I prefer command-line tooling so I don't know what it'll do under the hood16:25
uzeeTJ: looks like the minimal image probably does support kickstart, there are several references to it in the initrd. I'll try researching more on how to pass the argument...16:25
tomreynyesi: so it seems that the do.release-upgrade failed in a later stage. some packages are still installed from trusty and need to be removed. can you show: sudo apt update 2>&1; apt-cache policy 2>&116:25
TJ-uzee: look for some script that parses /proc/cmdline and looks for ks=16:26
panter_tomreyn: When I open htop and order on Memory usage I see ~100 firefox processes. Is this normal? I have 10 firefox extensions.16:27
uzeeTJ: thanks for the awesome tip, looks like it does support but not with http :(16:28
rudy_hello ..an mastodon app that work on ubuntu?16:28
tomreynpanter_: maybe with some really bad extensions, but with just 5 tabs i would not expect to see 100 firefox processes. on the other hand, maybe they are just threads and not processes, and then it doesn't hurt.16:28
=== SimonNL is now known as SimonNL_Afk
tomreynpanter_: which ubuntu release is this, are you using the firefox which is packaged as a debian package, or the firefox snap, or a third party one?16:30
uzeeOh, I'm sorry, it does support http/s both16:31
YounderIn the linux kernel threads are implemeted as separeted processes with shared memory and file/filetable. Perhaps that is the source of confusion?16:31
YounderThey don't have a seperate threadId16:31
uzeecool, it may just be finding the right syntax16:31
yesitomreyn: http://dpaste.com/109F35S16:32
tomreynyesi: thanks for posting the output for (just) the second of the two commands i asked you to post the output of.16:34
tomreynyesi: this output contradicts your earlier statemtn "The sources.lst point right now to xenial but before the do-release-upgrade, it was trusty"16:34
panter_tomreyn: Ubuntu 18.04.1, with firefox from the apt repositories.16:34
tomreynyesi: did you run "sudo apt(-get) update" before running the command which produced the output at http://dpaste.com/109F35S ?16:35
tomreynpanter_: so you are running firefox 64.0, i assume?16:36
panter_tomreyn: yes, firefox quantum 64.016:37
=== panter_ is now known as trirpi
trirpitomreyn: I think, I will ask in #firefox, since this does not seem ubuntu related.16:38
tomreyntrirpi: have you since checked whether the 10GB RAM are actually allocated by firefox or something else? and how much ram do you have, is it actually an issue?16:38
tomreyn"free -m" output may help determine whether or not there is an issue16:38
ioriatrirpi, why don'you start firefox  in  -safe-mode  and test ?16:39
trirpitomreyn: ~6 gigabytes is allocated to firefox. It is not an issue now. But I am about to load 3 gigabytes in a pandas dataframe and then I will need all the memory I have.16:39
tomreyntrirpi: so that's RSS or VSZ?16:40
tomreynfirefox's about:memory may also help understanding things better16:40
trirpitomreyn: That was me counting the numbers in the system monitor. So I am not sure whether it is RSS or VSZ.16:43
trirpifirefox about:memory shows that my extensions do use a lot of ram.16:43
=== TheHonorableKitt is now known as THKitten
Youndersudo apt install tripwire16:46
tomreyntrirpi: so maybe you found the culprit already, one or more of your extensions. if there is an issue at all.16:48

tomreynegrain: doh those are really old versions. it may have worked on ubuntu 11.10 from october 2011, which was supported until july 2012.16:57
egraintomreyn, as if i knew what time it was. do you have a solution for me then?16:57
yesitomreyn: i run 'apt update' before the policy output. This output came from the actual system. Despite of the failed upgrade to Xenial, i get a policy to Xenial. From there, i should be able to do "update, upgrade, full-upgrade", right ?16:57
tomreynegrain: i can't provide a solution until you state the problem / task.16:59
YounderWhat is rootkit Solaris Wanuk?16:59
tomreynegrain: i assume oyu are trying to get some oki scanner to scan on some ubuntu release?16:59

egrainall good as long as the girl was hot.18:16

tomreynegrain: the scanner driver you found on oki's website may indeed work, have you given it a try, yet?18:19
tomreynegrain: it is made for the old init system (not ready for systemd), so not everything may work out of the box, but it does install a sane driver/backend so you should be able to use it using sane-find-scanner18:21
egraintomreyn, i will try that then. thanks.18:22
egrainsane-find-scanner actually already found it before i installed anything.18:23
tomreynegrain: oh, very well.18:23
egraintomreyn, xsane still said no device found though. i wrote it in some oki config somewhere. let me look.18:23
ioriapeey, a lot of things depend on ncurses (with the correct version); i'd try first in a chroot env (or compile and use it from the build directory- without a make install)18:24
tomreynegrain: try simple-scan as well18:24
egraintomreyn, made a oki.conf file in /etc/sane.d/ with #oki.conf / usb=number number just like it said in here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SANE%20-%20Installing%20a%20scanner%20that%20isn%27t%20auto-detected18:26

peeyioria: Their install file suggests compiling and testing before make install too. I've done that and it seems to work mostly fine18:28
egrainoh. i thought that was something like the find scanner thing. got it.18:28
egrainthanks a bunch. will do.18:28
ioriapeey, how did you test it ?18:29
peeyioria: they have a whole test folder18:29
peeyioria: you can just run demos and see if they're working properly18:30
tomreynegrain: also "scanimage --test" if you want something with more output, and textual output.18:31
peeyThe only issue is that most demos have a grey background. I'm wondering if it's a setting for those demos  or if I install ncurses then everything I use will start to have that grey background.18:31
ioriapeey, those ncurses pkgs are essential to the system... i would not replace them18:32
peeyioria: Is there an easy way to bounce back if things go wrong? By backing up the to-be replaced binaries and replacing them perhaps18:34
peeyOr maybe I should just wait till I upgrade to 18.04 to get new ncurses18:34
ioriapeey, i suggest to upgrade to bionic (short answer)18:34
peeyioria: Yeah. Much more saner I suppose.18:35
ioriaegrain, most probably that .deb pkg installed the libs in the wrong location18:39
egrainioria, i haven't installed it.18:39
ioriaegrain, ah, good choice18:40
egraini'm not one of the ubuntis, so i'm really cautious.18:40

timelesscan someone help me find rsync-dbg or rsync-dbgsym for bionic?18:47
tomreyn!dbgsym | timeless18:56
ubottutimeless: dbgsym is https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash18:56
tomreynsee "Non-built-in debug symbol packages (*-dbgsym)"18:57
timelessI already created (per one of those pages): https://www.irccloud.com/pastebin/9yDlRUEA/18:58
timelessand i ran the command to add the keys to the keyring18:58
tomreyntimeless: hmm, right, rsync-dbgsym doesn't seem to exist there18:59
timelessright, i searched for the package in the various package search things, it doesn't seem to be there19:00
timelessthat's why i'm asking for help :-)19:00
tomreynok, i didnt know you already tried ddebs.19:01
timelessthat's ok19:02
timelessi'm still looking for help :-)19:02
timelessit /looks/ like the package doesn't exist in debian upstream either19:02
timelesshttps://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=rsync oddly has dbgsym for some other rsync related things19:02
timelesse.g. librsync2-dbgsym19:03
tomreynthere is librsync-dbg, but rsync doesn't seem to depend on it.19:03
timelessyeah, i installed that, it didnt19:04
timeless't help19:04
ark3I used a Bionic Live USB to boot a machine. The USB wifi dongle is not working and there's no ethernet available. How do I get USB wifi working on that machine? Thanks.19:05
timelessdo you care about the disks on the machine?19:05
ark3I can wipe the machine. I intend to install Bionic on it if things work okay.19:06
timelesspersonally, i'd probably install bionic first and boot from that19:06
timelessit would make reasoning through things easier for me19:06
timelesshttps://askubuntu.com/questions/235279/my-wifi-adapter-is-not-working-at-all-how-to-troubleshoot seems to be a reasonable starting point19:06
ark3How is that different?19:06
timelesswell, it means i can free up a usb port in case the ports aren't created equal (they often aren't)19:07
timelessit means if i need to boot a custom kernel, i can19:07
timelessbw2: yes?19:08
ark3Gotcha. Lemme try the page you suggested. I'll pop back in if that doesn't work out. Thank you.19:08
timelesstomreyn: so, i guess the answer is "build from source"?19:09
timeless(and maybe file a bug against debian+ubuntu asking for packages?)19:10

pragmaticenigmaMaxFun: depends on what you are trying to do and why you feel you need to run it like that23:02
TJ-kur1j: I'd strongly recommend using the most recent LTS/kernel you can since the older kernels may not have full support for that chipset/CPU mix. Also, 'noacpi' is the likely cause of not seeing the other CPU cores, since ACPI is essential these days for the OS to enumerate, control power and configure devices23:03

kur1jTJ-: its the latest LTS supported kernel for 16.23:08
TJ-kur1j: I'd suggest, as a test, trying the latest 19.04 Disco build, just to see if the issue is solved23:08
kur1jOerHeks: what other 2nd intel stuff?23:08
OerHekssrt https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI#General_principles23:08
TJ-kur1j: why 16.04, what about 18.04 which has the HWE v4.18 kernel ?23:09
kur1jTJ-: I have tried both23:09
kur1jTJ-: I get the same results23:09
OerHeksyeah, with a cpu from '17 ...23:09
TJ-kur1j: you've tried the Disco installer ?23:09
OerHeksbut then again, it can be a bios update issue, bios setting for igp, sata mode ahci ...23:10
kur1jTJ-: I have not tried Disco because its not the latest LTS which is what we stay on typically, I can do it test obviously but some of the software we use doesn't like to move23:10
kur1jOerHeks: I've got the latest BIOS on the system23:10
TJ-kur1j: that is the point, to test. The CPU is rather new isn't it, therefore the most recent kernel should be tested first23:12
kur1j18.10 latest?23:12
TJ-kur1j: Personally I'd install 18.04 as a bootable OS (rather than the installer ISO)  on a USB flash device, add the v4.18 HWE kernel, and the mainline 4.20 and 5.0-rc2 Ubuntu mainline kernel builds, and test the system with those.23:13
TJ-kur1j: that way you can capture system logs to the device easily, add special tools, more easily adapt kernel command line, and so forth23:14
TJ-!mainline | kur1j23:14
ubottukur1j: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds23:14
OerHeks18.04.2 LTS daily build http://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/ubuntu-dvd/bionic/daily-live/20190120/23:15
kur1jTJ-: wouldn't 18.04 live be the same?23:15
TJ-kur1j: no; using a 'live' means you have to go back to square one every time you do a reboot test.23:16
kur1jTJ-: ok well regardless it won't boot23:16
TJ-kur1j: you've got no persistent logging23:16
kur1jif you stick 18.04 on the machine it will not boot period without those flags23:16
OerHekscorrect, not with the daily build, awesome extra23:16
TJ-kur1j: with an installed system, you've got several places you can drop to a shell to examine it, e.g. GRUB rescue, GRUB shell, initialramfs, emergency/rescue shell, multi-user.target23:17
TJ-kur1j: "18.04" is not the problem; the kernel/firmware interaction is, and I'm recommending you test all available kernel versions. '18.04' userspace doesn't matter23:18
kur1jso instead of installing on a disk drive just install on a USB device on a working machine?23:19
TJ-kur1j: yes, and add those additional kernel packages, modify the GRUB menu so it isn't hidden and doesn't time out, so you can choose which kernel version to boot each time23:20
TJ-kur1j: Also, I'd also disable the GUI and only allow it to boot to the terminal, so the GUI doesn't get in the way of testing.23:21
TJ-kur1j: as in "systemctl set-default multi-user.target"23:21
TJ-kur1j: in that way, journald will capture all the kernel boot logs (when it gets far enough) so you can examine those later (from that system or some other PC)23:22
kur1jok sounds like a plan23:24
ZummiG777This is a weird question, and maybe I'm just behind the times, but is there anyway to disable the use of snap packages?23:25
TJ-kur1j: there's a few people here with extensive experience of debugging these kinds of issues; the key is to choose the easiest ways to reduce the problem space. That begins with testing the most recent kernels first in case they've solved the issue (in which case we could then find the commits that did te fix and get them backported to standard Ubuntu kernels)23:25
kur1jgranted, if its fixed in the newer builds not much it will do for me though haha23:25
kur1jTJ-: yup fair enough.23:26
kur1jTJ-: would getting the boot logs of each work? Say it boots in 4.20 but doesn't in 4.18, but capturing the dmesg boot log be enough?23:27
TJ-kur1j: journald captures them, and "journalctl -b -X" will report the X previous boot, e.g. "journalctl -b 2" will show the boot log from 2 boots ago23:29
TJ-kur1j: I'd also recommend you open a bug report on this so we can track it, many of us are in different time zones so it makes sharing/reviewing info much easier23:30
TJ-!bug | kur1j23:31
ubottukur1j: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please report it using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.23:31
kur1jTJ-: Ok I'll do that23:31
TJ-kur1j: I'd recommend using https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+reportbug  and giving it a title like "Boot failure on Dell XXXXXX with CPU YYYYYY" and let us know the bug number here23:31
TJ-oh, that should be ".../+filebug"23:32
kur1jTJ-: thanks TJ I'm going in our lab to start appreciate the help ill def be back on this23:35
TJ-ZummiG777: you could disable or remove snapd23:35
kur1jTJ-: all of our leases are expiring and they are giving us these new machines...that don't work haha23:35
kur1jhave to figure out a solution somehow23:36
TJ-kur1j: I'm in UK so its almost midnight here but I'll hang on to see your bug number so I can subscribe to it23:36
j0sephHi, all. I am currently on Ubuntu 18.10. Whenever my laptop (XPS 13 9360) goes into sleep mode, it sometimes cannot read / connect to the wireless card (Killer 1535 AC). Usually, this can require a restart but on occasion even that does not help. I am currently using Dell's XPS BIOS Ver 2.10. Any ways I can rectify this? Thanks!23:36
TJ-kur1j: doesn't matter if there's nothing much in it to begin with, just so's we have the number and some inital make/model/spec details to investigate23:36
TJ-j0seph: I was reading of a potential cause of that earlier today; something to do with PCI device power levels not being reset correctly after resume from suspend, but so far its not been solved. I'll grab the bug report for you: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20146923:39
ubottubugzilla.kernel.org bug 201469 in PCI "iwlwifi: 7265: wifi stop working after wakeup from suspend since 4.18rc1 - (CSR_GP_CNTRL 0xffffffff)" [High,Needinfo]23:39
j0sephTJ-: Thanks! Yes, when it wakes up, there is a notification reading "Power" with a large black-and-white cross sign, though I can never read further as it doesn't appear when I log back in. Perhaps this is the cause. Are there any short-term solutions to this, such as a newer kernel or the like?23:42
kur1jTJ-: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/181275823:44
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1812758 in linux (Ubuntu) "Boot failure on Dell Dell Precision 5820 with Intel Xeon W-2123 CPU" [Undecided,New]23:44
TJ-j0seph: if you're experiencing the issue I referenced there are not; it's some subtle problem between the PC firmware ACPI code, and the OS drivers23:44
TJ-kur1j: thanks, subscribing23:44
kur1jTJ-: thanks23:45
TJ-kur1j: what is interesting is that Dell claim to support 16.04 on that system, so my bet is they have a custom installer/image they put on them that does work fine, possibly containing patches Ubuntu itself isn't aware of23:48
j0sephTJ-: Well, that's a shame.. So long as this won't cause and harm to the card itself, I suppose I'll have to wait until it's patched. Otherwise, I'd be worried. But, I think that most signs point to having the issue you outlined there. I also found this on askubuntu which describes a similar problem, but with someone suggesting the solution to be installing 'firmware-realtek' but as far as I know, Killer isn't associated with realtek.23:48
j0seph(I don't know what relation this will bear to my case, as my wireless card is not an intel one)23:51
j0sephAs it seems like iwlwifi is for intel cards. Or is this a larger problem? Sorry if I'm asking silly questions.23:51

qwebirc51658Hey I'm working on building software that will autorun on a thumbdrive booting with ubuntu. the ubuntu livecd docs seem a little dated and I'm wondering if there's better resources for learning to work with building live boot distros23:52
OerHekswifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no looks interesting, from https://askubuntu.com/questions/761180/wifi-doesnt-work-after-suspend-after-16-04-upgrade/761220#761220  --- but i would use their latest binairy blob  >>  https://www.dell.com/support/article/ae/en/aebsdt1/sln306440/killer-n1535-wireless-firmware-manual-update-guide-for-ubuntu-systems?lang=en23:54
OerHeksqwebirc51658, interesting, there is a daily live iso, but it will be old tomorrow 18.04.2 LTS daily build http://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/ubuntu-dvd/bionic/daily-live/20190120/23:55
