konradosHello. I'm trying to install java jdk8-sdk with `sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk` but I get this result:"The following packages have unmet dependencies" and "openjdk-8-jdk : Depends: openjdk-8-jre (= 8u77-b03-3ubuntu3) but 8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1 is to be installed" full:  https://paste.gg/p/anonymous/78f2146d632746f09894b5840e70d8f2 - but... what does that even mean? Depends on X but Y is to be installed? Why?01:20
konradosI found someone having a similar issue, but on debian, and he recommends `apt-get install -t jessie-backports ca-certificates-java` - if this sounds reasonable, how would I do this for ubuntu xenial?01:25
Bashing-omkonrados: What you need to do here is find out why openjdk-8-jre is held. What shows ' apt policy openjdk-8-jre ' ? As a place to start hunting.01:28

krytarikErm, wrong ping, but..01:30

OerHeksnothing i guess, ppa-purge reverses to the package ubottu gave01:48
krytarikI'll mention though that there isn't even an openjdk-8 for Xenial in that PPA.01:49
tomreynthere's nothing at all for xenial in that ppa.01:51

TimeDoctorI think that's underscan02:42
Lub18042ltsYeah but where do I set that and, more importantly, get it to apply to all videos loaded automatically?02:44
tomreynkonrados: to explain in some more detail: yat some point you removed the essential apt repositories which provide your system with security patches. since this point, your system has not received any security patches, vulnerabilities which were published were no longer fixed on your system. We cannot rule out that your system was taken over by a third party in the meantime. This is why I recommend reinstalling. The situation where you don't know02:44
tomreynhow you ended up there adds to it. What we're doing now is to pretend that nothing ever happened and your system got updates all the time and we just need to 'repair' it  (which may not be sufficient).02:44

Lub18042ltsI have a system set up where display 2 is cloned to display 3, but display 3 is bigger. To make it fullscreen all around, I made display 2 monitor settings scale down (or zoom out).

So I want VLC to auto zoom out on start to make it fit perfectly to display 302:55

tomreynkonrados: so you have more work to do. i still think it's better to do a fresh installation rather sooner than later. if you run into more issues while cleaning up, feel free to ask. and be sure to read some documentation before you make changes to essential files and configuration sin the future.03:02
tomreynkonrados: cool, good luck.03:02
konradostomreyn, yes, that was actually my question (will be), fresh install or an upgrade, but I guess I would go with fresh one, and then just reinstall everything, and read more about those things, as you said :)03:04
tomreynkonrados: yes, do a fresh install. it also enables you to switch to uefi booting if your mainboard firmware supports this (and you're not already doing so). just restore your backups after you reinstalled.03:05

BluesKajHi Guest3795509:36
BlackDalekHi.. Does anyone know how to use ffmpeg to add a timecode overlay onto existing video? Or is this now something ffmpeg can do?09:45
BlackDalekis this not*09:47
mousesBlackDalek: first google result - http://johnwarburton.net/blog/?p=309:48
mousesBlackDalek: that should sort you out09:48
gde33trying to add the ppa for lxqt but ppa:lubuntu-dev/lubuntu-daily doesn't exist09:50
gde33ah figured it out just sudo apt-get install lxqt openbox09:51
mousesgde33: you should (in my opinion) never use PPA's unless last restory09:51
mousesresort* - the're a ton of security risks inherent with them09:52
gde33where is your sense of adventure! lol09:52
mouses(host of PPA sets a weak password/security, account gets compromised, updates pushed to software you use that include back doors and other danger, you update and end up rooting yourself)09:53
mousesgde33: xD09:53
gde33I'm just folliwng what the tutorials say09:53
mousescareful with that09:53
mousesoutdated/bad tutorials are a dime a dozen09:53
gde33lubuntu-dev doesn't sound all that terrifying?09:53
mousesthere's a million ways to do most things, 950,000 of them will work and 900,000 will be a bad idea09:53
mousesgde33: probably not, just meant in general xD09:54
gde33reminds me of something I wanted to ask.09:54
gde33I would call it the only fun windos xp feature09:54
gde33I would stick a drive with a windos install into a new computer09:54
gde33like an old install from previous system09:55
gde33that doesn't work but if you then run the repair tool it fixes everything09:55
mousesgde33: oh, like a 'burn entire system to a image that I can restore later and have everything just as I left it' thing?09:55
gde33and faster than a new install too09:55
mousesgde33: I do that often for work and personal projects, many ways to do it - I prefer CloneZilla09:56
gde33is this doable for a noob on unbuntu?09:56
mousesthere's a learning curve but it's not that awful09:56
mousesdownload it, create a bootstick of clonezilla, boot it, select drive/partition to backup, tell it where to backup to, push button09:56
gde33I always want to punch someone when told to just format the drive and start from scratch09:57
mousesassuming the source+target are not the same sizes, you'll have to make some config changes, but it09:57
mouseswill walk you through it09:57
mousesgde33: lol yeah no need for that09:57
mousesgde33: another nice way (that I use) is keep / and /home on seperate parts09:57
mousesso I can just reinstall and then restore /home09:57
mousesand have APT export names of all installed packages09:57
mousesand then reinstall them09:57
mousesyou'll lose some config outside of /home but no big deal09:58
BluesKajyeah, usually non-default packages09:59
jorrit_atUbuntu 18.04.2 | evolution & evolution-ews 3.28.5 | Evolution won't sync last days of e-mail on my Office365-account. No errors reported when starting from terminal. the Office365 website does show those e-mails correctly09:59
gde33ok, going to try swithc desktop environments now, if you never hear from me again its been nice guys :P10:00
jorrit_atLatest e-mails arrive normally, but I experience a gap of three days.10:00
gde33that wasn't very exciting, it prompted me to chose "my vavorite windos mananger" and offered a list of 0 items.10:12
gde33it also talked about how easy it would be to change it after I chose one10:12
* gde33 reads websites from 201410:14
Vuurdraakgde33, at least it didnt lie :) easy to install and easy choice as in zero effort znad zero choice :P10:18
gde33I like the part where it is "not our problem"10:19
gde33this window should never pop up - so it would be a good idea to configure your default window manager. We have done that - but if our default configuration isn’t readed the distribution in charge should provide a valid configuration file in a xdg-place where the session can read from. ‘/etc/xdg/lxqt’ would be a good place.10:20
Vuurdraakmaybe you need to pre install different desktop enviroments first from the ubuntu repository ?10:21
Vuurdraakno idea though i have never changed my destop10:22
gde33I have the unity and the gnome and the lxqt and it also lists openbox under the options10:22
gde33Vuurdraak: where is your sense of adventure! lol10:22
Vuurdraaki had a lot of adventure compiling ffmpeg & obs a month or so ago to be able to use nvenc hardware encoders for recording and streaming, that was enough of an adventure for 2019 :D10:23
gde33right, you need some time to cool of and calm down too, I get it10:24
gde33"setting the search path right should be sufficient - ok, the right search path is still under discussion"10:25
BluesKajcompiled ffmpeg, why? it's in the repos10:26
Vuurdraakffmepg doesnt support NVENC out of the box cuase its propriatairy closed software from nvidia10:28
Vuurdraakso to get OBS & ffmepg to work with nvenc you need to compile it your self10:29

=== real_walnut_burl is now known as walnut_burl
MonkeyDustpeter22222: rsync is similar to cp... if you created a hardlink of a file to another folder, you then copy the file to another folder, the hardlink will be preserved12:08
peter22222thank you MonkeyDust... i d like to backup my whole / with rsync and considering if i should include the -H option, i ve researched a bit about it and i read that there might be some issues using it and thats why it's turned off by default...12:10
MonkeyDustpeter22222: do you know the difference between a hardlink and a symlink?12:10
peter22222MonkeyDust I think I do as far as I have read about.12:10
rypervenchepeter22222: If you have manually created many hardlinks on your system and you don't use -H with rsync, then you could possibly run out of disk space when rsyncing the data to your backup drive.12:24
peter22222rpervenche thank you... well i have never manually created a hardlink intentionally ;-) so i guess i dont really need the option then...12:26

EriC^^Rory2: does "mount | grep /tmp" give anything?13:08
Rory2no. I don't see /tmp mentioned in the ouput of "mount" command13:09
Rory2I do only have 1.1G free space remaining on the root partition but that ought to be plenty, right?13:11

solderfumes<Rory2 "What is the 5% reserved for?"> If you want to reboot to single user mode because nothing works when the disk runs out of space, you want to have some space so at least _something_ works. Just so you can fix the file system enough to reboot. Thus, /root has some reserved space in ext413:36

OerHeksgnome-softwarecenter, easy to remove16:29

tmrolandapt purge nothing either16:31
ioriatmroland, you can parse apt-cache show xubuntu-desktop16:31
tmrolandright, so from what i see from that i have the recommends installed16:32

pragmaticenigmacfhowlett: without validating that, please don't recommend those commands16:37
cfhowlettpragmaticenigma, okay.  why, please?16:38
pragmaticenigmacfhowlett: It's a greedy remove and may remove packages the user needs to have in order to keep their machine functioning16:38
cfhowlettnoted.  wouldn't the system then revert to plain vanilla ubuntu-desktop?16:39
tmrolandcfhowlett: also i said it before, that command does nothing for my problem16:40
EriC^^tmroland: you could get the list from /var/log/apt/history.log and use xargs to feed it to apt-get16:40
tmrolandbut the history.log might contain other packages that i need16:40
pragmaticenigmacfhowlett: It's possible through the network of dependencies you would be left without any desktop. There is no automatic reversion. That package manager either installs or removes the packages you tell it to. Removing XFCE does not trigger an install of Gnome-Desktop16:40
EriC^^tmroland: get the list of packages it installed when you installed xubuntu if it's recent enough nothing else should depend on it16:41
EriC^^tmroland: it'll literally say the command you used e.g 'sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop' and mention everything it installed16:41
tmrolandwell that file is a endless mess of words and package names16:42
tmrolandmany of whicih i can easily see i need16:42
tmrolandie kde ones16:42
tmrolandok ill check16:42
EriC^^tmroland: type 'grep -A4 xubuntu-desktop /var/log/apt/history.log'16:42
EriC^^tmroland: the only issue is if you installed something post-xubuntu-installation, that might depend coincidentally on the packages that were installed during that operation16:43
EriC^^so see what you've installed after that command ran, and if it's not too many possibly use 'apt-cache show <package>' to see any dependencies or maybe run xargs and apt-get with the -s (dry run) flag to see if it will remove any program you care about16:44

qwebirc74851man my computer is oned then17:50
qwebirc74851i had that on a partition and i didnt wanna use it anymore17:50
qwebirc74851so i wiped the partition17:51
hggdhqwebirc74851: please mind your language17:51
qwebirc74851now i can only boot in to grub rescue17:51
lordcirthqwebirc74851, so, you erased your OS and now you can't boot? I'm unsure where the unexpected part is.17:51
EriC^^qwebirc74851: do you have a windows cd?17:51
qwebirc74851man nah i have windows 10 dude17:51
qwebirc74851ur a funny guy tho17:52
EriC^^qwebirc74851: do you remember if you were using uefi? spot any efi partition or fat3217:52
qwebirc74851and no i dont have a windows 10 cd17:52
lordcirthqwebirc74851, so you had a dual-boot, using GRUB, and then you removed Ubuntu, and now GRUB is broken, and you want Windows boot fixed?17:52
EriC^^qwebirc74851: nothing funny about what i said17:52
lordcirthEriC^^, I think he was talking to me there17:52
ChunkzZEriC^^: see above screenshot.17:52
qwebirc74851i was talking to him lol17:53
programmerqI imported a couple of openvpn config files on ubuntu 18.04 via 'sudo nmcli connection import type openvpn file client1.ovpn'. One work, one doesn't. The config that uses a tap device is the one that doesn't work.17:53
lordcirthqwebirc74851, so, you need to download a win10 ISO, put it on a USB/CD, and boot that and repair.17:53
qwebirc74851and no dude i dont know17:53
programmerqthe networkmanager gui doesn't seem to expose debug logs17:53
qwebirc74851is there like an easier way than that17:53
EriC^^qwebirc74851: which laptop is it or pc?17:53
qwebirc74851my isp shut off my internet17:53
EriC^^the model17:53
pragmaticenigmaqwebirc74851: to fix windows, you need to aquire a windows installation iso ... Microsoft has one available on their website. It will provide you with the option to repair your windows installation17:53
qwebirc74851by acccident17:53
qwebirc74851cant i just get rid of grub17:54
EriC^^guys if he has uefi he can just choose windows from the uefi menu and then reinstall the bootloader from there once it boots17:54
ChunkzZIgnors me then... Damn.17:54
EriC^^qwebirc74851: which pc model is it?17:54
qwebirc74851im never gonna download an 8gb livecd17:54
ChunkzZAnyone else?17:54
lordcirthqwebirc74851, you can get rid of grub, but that won't put bootmgr back.17:54
qwebirc74851idk i17:54
qwebirc74851made it myself17:54
qwebirc74851its a gigabyte mobo17:54
qwebirc74851if that helps17:54
pragmaticenigmaqwebirc74851: An ubuntu live image will not fix your windows installation17:55
EriC^^ChunkzZ: sorry i've never used or know what mndilna is17:55
qwebirc74851my windows installation is fine17:55
lordcirthEriC^^, minidlna* is a program that shares media over DLNA, to smart TVs and such17:55
qwebirc74851i deleted my ubuntu partition from disk manager17:55
qwebirc74851now when i boot im straight in to grub recovery or whatev17:56
lordcirthqwebirc74851, so, you don't know if you are using EFI or not?17:56
ChunkzZYeah lordcirth any help you can give me?17:56
lordcirthqwebirc74851, what motherboard model?17:56
EriC^^qwebirc74851: ok, boot it and try pressing F12, see if you have windows there and choose it17:56
qwebirc74851i pressed f12 and it just shows my media, i cant boot windows from any of em17:56
qwebirc74851and lemme see17:57
lordcirthChunkzZ, so, minidlna isn't detecting the video files?17:57
EriC^^qwebirc74851: try pressing Del and go to the bios and see what mode you were using, uefi or csm legacy17:57
pavlosprogrammerq: the .ovpn file will tell you if it uses "dev tun" or "dev tap" (line 5)17:57
EriC^^qwebirc74851: do you remember seeing GPT anywhere when you deleted the partition? or FAT32 ESP or EFI?17:57
lordcirthChunkzZ, what user is minidlna running as?17:58
qwebirc74851i got to the bios screen18:00
qwebirc74851its uefi18:00
ChunkzZDefault lordcirth_18:00
lordcirthqwebirc74851, oh, good. So if you go to the boot menu, is there a Windows entry?18:00
EriC^^ok, you should be able to choose windows there qwebirc7485118:00
qwebirc74851and no i literally just18:00
lordcirthChunkzZ, it's been a while, what is the default?18:00
qwebirc74851kk 1 sec18:00

programmerqhttps://gist.github.com/programmerq/6be97755d5003a6e651224d0da5700d1 - here's a little more detail.18:01
demuwhy do these two commands have the same output: grep --include=\*.{cats,dogs} -rnw 'pets/' -e "bessie" and grep --include=*.{cats,dogs} -rnw 'pets/' -e "bessie" Note the "\" has no effect18:01
ChunkzZNo, I mean the default name on the system.18:01
ChunkzZMy Xbox see's it but shows no video files18:02
pragmaticenigmademu: Please do your homework on your own.18:02
lordcirthChunkzZ, does that user have permission to read those files?18:02
lordcirthChunkzZ, well, sudo -i -u username and find out18:02
EriC^^demu: the \ is just for bash in this case, if nothing expands then itll be the same, a literal "*"18:02

devon121hello world18:04
FieryCodDoes anyone have experience with mounting sdxc?18:04
lordcirthChunkzZ, so, it's running as 'odroid'? Is this a normal Ubuntu install?18:04
lordcirthdevon121, hi18:04
qwebirc74851nah i cant see windows18:04
pragmaticenigmademu: The back slash only escapes specific characters defiend in the GREP documentation. You should go read the documentation for a listing of escapable characters.18:04
qwebirc74851i selected the disk to boot from on my mobo screen18:04
pragmaticenigmademu: As well as when are some characters escapable and when they are not18:04
devon121how many people are here18:05
qwebirc74851and its just talking me directly in to grub18:05
EriC^^demu: if you run the same command in a populated dir, just using "echo <command here>" does it change?18:05
pragmaticenigmadevon121: This is a channel for requesting assistance with Ubuntu Desktop. Please do not chat here18:05
ChunkzZlordcirth: ^18:05
devon121ok, sorry, where is channel for web developers18:06
lordcirthChunkzZ, and you can read the files?18:06
EriC^^demu: using 'echo stuff' is a good way to see what will happen post-bash expansion and stuff, i think grep takes \ itself, but you'd possibly need to do something like '\stuff' to escape bash first18:06
FieryCodI suspect that it's an issue with my sd adapter driver since it's not shown when using lshw. My laptop is XPS 15 957018:06
pragmaticenigma!alis | devon12118:06
ubottudevon121: Alis is an IRC service to help you find channels. For help on using it, see "/msg Alis help list" or ask in #freenode. Example usage: "/msg Alis list http"18:06
lordcirthChunkzZ, 'file filename' will try to get the file type, which should try to read it18:06
qwebirc74851@lordcirith what should i be looking for18:06
EriC^^demu: as pragmaticenigma suggested read the docs and stuff, get your hands more into it18:07
EriC^^qwebirc74851: you need to select some sort of "Windows" entry not the disk, the disk is set to ubuntu right now18:07
EriC^^qwebirc74851: look for some sort of "uefi list" where you can put windows at the top one18:08
EriC^^might be under boot options or uefi options etc, the alternative is to drop into some uefi shell and manually boot "efi\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi"18:09
qwebirc74851you mean like18:09
qwebirc74851when im choosing the os?18:09
hggdhqwebirc74851: please, write a COMPLETE sentence in one line.18:09
qwebirc74851i cant see anything with windows on it18:09
qwebirc74851i can see sandisk, toshiba etc18:10
EriC^^qwebirc74851: is there a boot options menu or uefi list menu?18:10
qwebirc74851idk what those are18:10
EriC^^i think if you search around there should be something useful, also maybe "Browse for efi file" or something18:10
EriC^^"Use default windows OS path" or something similar iirc18:11
EriC^^qwebirc74851: you could easily do this using any ubuntu or linux live usb, even tiny linux18:12
EriC^^i think tiny core linux is 12mb, you just need to mount the efi and you could switch the filenames yourself, or if you are able to download ubuntu you could use efibootmgr to change the uefi list there to use windows18:13
ChunkzZlordcirth: ?18:16
lordcirthChunkzZ, can you read the files as 'odroid'?18:17
ChunkzZHow do I check?18:17
lordcirthChunkzZ, as I said, using the 'file' command is one way.18:17
ChunkzZI can see them, yes.18:17
ChunkzZCan play them too.18:18
hggdhChunkzZ: under what userId?18:18
lordcirthChunkzZ, ok, so you do have access. When you run minidlna, does it return any errors?18:18
ChunkzZhggdh: odroid.18:18
ChunkzZlordcirth: nope, no errors.18:18
FieryCodis there a driver for the xps-15-9570 for sd cards on Ubuntu somewhere on the internet?18:19
demuEriC^^: The top answer in this post got me confused https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16956810/how-do-i-find-all-files-containing-specific-text-on-linux i.e --include=\*.{c,h} but then he --exclude=*.o18:19
pragmaticenigmaFieryCod: Ubuntu does not require the installation of drivers for most hardware. If the device is not working, you may need to make sure cables are securely attached to their connectors. If your machine is dual boot, or you have a second machine, ensure that the device either works or fails. If it fails on another computer or in Windows, then the device is no longer working.18:21
demuEric^^: Then went I test it, the \ made no difference18:21
tewardFieryCod: it should already be present; you can try to `sudo modprobe rtsx_pci` but `lspci` will still show it as 'unassigned class'.  I don't have an SD card here to test with though (I have the same laptop)18:22
FieryCodpragmaticenigma: The device is working properly on Windows18:22
pragmaticenigmademu: We already provided an answer to you. It's up to you to read the documentation to figure out how the backslash operates in grep18:22
EriC^^demu: personally i think he just forgot to put the \ there, that's my opinion, not sure18:22
EriC^^demu: read the docs, and also experiment yourself, make a dir with *.c and *.o extensions and trying using echo with the command etc and see what happens etc etc18:23
pragmaticenigmaFieryCod: Then it is likely that no one has encoutered that device before and there is no support yet for it in Linux18:23
FieryCodOk I got 3c:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS525A PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01)18:24
EriC^^demu: i mean run the echo command while "cd" 'd into the dir18:24
FieryCodDoes it mean that it will not work?18:25
pragmaticenigmademu: Straight from the documentation that you are refusing to read: Search only files whose base name matches GLOB. A file-name glob can use *, ?, and [...] as wildcards, and \ to quote a wildcard or backslash character literally.18:25
pavlosprogrammerq: change MACAddressPolicy=persistent to none in /lib/systemd/network/99-default.link and try ...18:26
demuEric^^ and pragmaticenigma: thank you!18:31
FieryCodHave no idea how to fix that unassigned class RTS525A. ;/18:32
programmerqpavlos▸ tried that. added the results to the gist: https://gist.github.com/programmerq/6be97755d5003a6e651224d0da5700d1#file-syslog218:33
pragmaticenigmaFieryCod: You can't, The device is recognized as a card reader18:33
EriC^^demu: no problem18:33
FieryCodpragmaticenigma: Ok so that's good. If it's recognized then I should be able to mount the sdcard18:34
pragmaticenigmaFieryCod: That's the expected behavior18:34
programmerqI think it has more to do with the "invalid ipv4 config received". I tried disabling ipv4 in the network manager gui for this vpn connection, but it still says it's an invalid config.18:34
programmerq(this vpn has both ipv4 and ipv6 enabled, hence the tap device)18:34

fleabeardam I wrong to assume apache2 on ubuntu 18.04 doesn't use www-data as the user/group for running apache2?18:40
fleabeardI'm guessing it's using nobody:nogroup18:41
pavlosprogrammerq: that error has to do with the routes being pushed. check your openVPN server config18:41
leftyfbfleabeard: can't you check?18:41
pragmaticenigmafleabeard: Unless you have configured it to use something else, it uses the www-data18:41
fleabeardleftyfb, well I did 'apachectl -S' and it says User: name="www-data" id=33 not_used / Group: name="www-data" id=33 not_used.18:42
fleabeardI'm assuming the "not_used" means it's not using www-data?18:42
leftyfbfleabeard: ps -ef |grep apache18:42
fleabeardleftyfb, shows www-data, thanks!18:43
OerHeks The default value for User is "www-data". https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/httpd.html18:43
OerHeksThe default group is also "www-data", surprisingly18:44
ryahi_skaprinavCorrect way of upgrading pip?18:46
fleabeardso should I be worried that my files in /var/www/html have user/group of nobody:nogroup? Would I want to chown that to www-data:www-data?18:46
pragmaticenigmafleabeard: Only you can answer that question. There is no way for anyone else to know what needs to be owned by what user and group, and what it will break by changing things in that directory18:48
OerHeksryahi_skaprinav, python3-pip is patched, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/+package/python3-pip18:48
OerHeksso why upgrade?18:48
fleabeardpragmaticenigma, ah okay, I wasn't sure if I needed to worry about what user/group was under that directory since apache.conf is using that path for serving files via http.18:50
ryahiOerHeks, pip19.0.1 is available. How can I update to that?18:51
Jeatonis it possible to devote a gpu for a vm?18:51
blackflowryahi: you shouldn't be using pip outside of virtualenv, so that's where you upgrade it.18:51
ryahiok thanks understood blackflow18:52
programmerqpavlos▸ I do have push "route net_gateway"18:52
blackflowfleabeard: ideally you don't want files owned by nobody. those uid/gid are special and not something for regular use.18:52
FieryCodOk I found that it's a problem not with the sd adapter but rather with sdxc18:52
pragmaticenigmafleabeard: That all depends on what security flags are set on the files. If the "e" block of the security flags is set to "r" then any process will be able to read the file18:52
pragmaticenigma"e" for all users fleabeard18:53
OerHeksryahi, *if* you want to; sudo -H pip2 install --upgrade pip // sudo -H pip3 install --upgrade pip > If youre running it without -H it will complain, because it detects that the currently set home directory (normal user) does not match the user it runs as (root).18:54
blackflowOerHeks: bad advice. never install files via pip as root, nor replace packaged' pip via pip as root18:55
blackflowunless you know very well what you're doing (and then you're not asking in #ubuntu), you should never use pip outside of a virtualenv, and most certainly never as root. clobbering packaged python files may render teh system unusable.18:56
OerHeksthat -H solves it, though?18:57
blackflowit clobbers packaged pip18:57
pragmaticenigmaOerHeks: I've seen it recommended pip packages should be installed within a virtualenv18:57

programmerqtatertots▸ I've used this server configuration successfully on other devices, so I'm not sure what about the configuration is incorrect.18:58
programmerqI've even tried disabling the ipv4 stuff on the client config altogether to sidestep that18:58
tatertotsprogrammerq: what is the working/successful devices model/manufacture?18:58
pragmaticenigmaprogrammerq: There could be a versioning or regression that has changed the behavior that used to work.18:59
programmerqI've had success on multiple windows 10 clients, as well as tunnelblick via macos.18:59
tatertotsprogrammerq: just name the manufacture/model#18:59
programmerqgranted, it wasn't this week so it could be a version thing.18:59
pavlosprogrammerq: an example is push "route"  your mask is ff.ff.ff.ff are you sure?18:59
programmerqI _believe_ the push line I have in the server is appropriate in the case where you want to redirect all traffic through the VPN.19:00
blackflowOerHeks: also, your idea to use pip to install self, upgraded, under ~/  does not need sudo. running pip as user defaults to installing under ~/.local/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages/  but that also clobbers installed packages' functionality (PATH precedence) which is bad idea19:00

EriC^^Randolf: type "sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1 2>&1 | nc termbin.com 9999"20:47
ChunkzZlordcirth__: basically, I got an .mkv from my cctv, I put that into the dlna dir and it's detected... once I add a couple of movies they're not... wtf?20:47
RandolfOkay, will do...20:48
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, you mean the others aren't detected, or the mkv stops showing up once you put the others in?20:48
ChunkzZI mean the others aren't detected...20:48
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, what format are the others?20:49
ChunkzZ1 mp4, 1 avi and 1 mkv.20:49
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, and the other mkv doesn't show up?20:50
ChunkzZit's only showing the cctv one: Video files120:50
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, do they have the same ownership and permissions as the one that works?20:50
RandolfHmm, this doesn't seem to show the error this time.20:50
RandolfOh, hang on, I just typed "dmesg" and I'm seeing disk I/O errors.20:51
RandolfWell, Buffer I/O errors, actually.20:51
RandolfI think I'll need a different USB interface.20:51
lordcirth__Randolf, yeah, sounds like hardware.20:52
RandolfThe drive is fine.  It's the USB interface.  I'll try another...20:52
ChunkzZany ideas lordcirth__ ?20:52
RandolfHmm, interesting.  The drive mounted this time.  I'll still redo this with a different USB interface.20:52
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, you sure there's nothing in  /var/log/minidlna.log?20:53
ChunkzZwhere can I paste lordcirth__ ?20:54
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, pastebinit, or | nc termbin.com 999920:55
ChunkzZnah I got the log file, I need somewhere to paste it to. lol20:55
ubottuFor 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.20:55
ChunkzZI'm SSH'd into it and can see the file.20:55
EriC^^ChunkzZ: cat /file | nc termbin.com 999920:55
ChunkzZlordcirth__: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Fx5nWmbXWz/20:56
EriC^^looks like a lot of permission denied ones20:57
Randolflordcirth__: Yes, it was the USB interface.20:57
RandolfEriC^^: It's working now with a different USB interface.20:57
RandolfThanks for your help.20:57
EriC^^Randolf: great, no problem20:58
ChunkzZEriC^^: yeah just seen it. can I change that?20:58
EriC^^ChunkzZ: yeah, chmod 600 the files20:58
ChunkzZyeah but do I have to do that to EVERY file?20:59
EriC^^type "ls -l /mnt/external/fight2.mp4" and paste here20:59
EriC^^ChunkzZ: no, you could use find to do it for you20:59
ChunkzZit's messed up... I just pasted from my windows machine to the smb share and now they're detected?!21:00
ChunkzZall 4 files are now in minidlna21:00
RandolfEriC^^: This seems strange to me -- I can't create files or directories on the drive, even though it shows up as a 960 GB volume.21:00
ChunkzZVideo files421:00
EriC^^ChunkzZ: the permissions when you pasted them changed probably21:00
EriC^^Randolf: type "mount | grep sdb1 | nc termbin.com 9999"21:01
Randolf/dev/sdb1 on /media/randolf/b16e0f2b-685d-4b5d-b452-6a70372c28be type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,data=ordered,uhelper=udisks2)21:01
RandolfI see the "rw" flag there.21:02
RandolfNo errors in dmesg.21:02
EriC^^i'm guessing it's a permissions issue, type "sudo chmod 777 /media/randolf/b16e0f2b-685d-4b5d-b452-6a70372c28be"21:02
ChunkzZI got a torrent of ubuntu downloading... to test it.21:03
RandolfOkay, I see.  I just looked with FAR Manager, and only "root" had Write access.21:03
RandolfThat fixed it.21:03
RandolfThanks again.21:03
ChunkzZEriC^^: how can I see the perms now?21:04
EriC^^type "ls -l /mnt/external/fight2.mp4" and paste here21:04
ChunkzZno, I'm on about a torrent I just downloaded, xubuntu. the fight one's and kid are showing because I copied from my windows machine.21:05
lordcirth__Well, use the same on that file, then21:05
ChunkzZhow can I see what perms are the fight one and change them on the torrent?21:06
ChunkzZthey're showing green, fight and kid etc.21:06
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, EriC^^ just told you how to see permissions.21:06
ChunkzZ-rw-rw---- 1 qbittorrent-nox qbittorrent-nox 1474953216 Apr  1 21:03 /mnt/external/xubuntu-18.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso21:07
tomreynsudo chmod o+r /mnt/external/xubuntu-18.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso21:07
ChunkzZtomreyn: do I have to do that to every file?21:08
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, you can *carefully* use -R to do it recursively21:08
ChunkzZcan't I just do it to the file and whatever is inside is done?21:08
ChunkzZlordcirth__: ^21:08
tomreynChunkzZ: unless you make it so that these files are created with different permissions or in a directory where everyone can read, you'll need to do it to every file, yes21:09
EriC^^ChunkzZ: what does "ls -ld /mnt/external give?"21:09
EriC^^ChunkzZ: what does "ls -ld /mnt/external" give?21:09
ChunkzZdrwxrwxrwx 4 root root 4096 Apr  1 21:02 /mnt/external21:09
ChunkzZtomreyn: no easier way?21:10
EriC^^well the permissions seem to all check out, and the program still doesnt pick those particular files up? (not windows pasted ones or do you mean you pasted them there?)21:10
ChunkzZno I'm on about what qbittorrent downloaded, the torrent of xubuntu.21:11
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, you could change the umask of the process that is writing these files.21:11
ChunkzZthe persmissions.21:11
tomreynChunkzZ: no easier way.21:11
ChunkzZlordcirth__: how?21:11
EriC^^i dont think umask allows permissions for others to change21:12
EriC^^nevermind it does, it just doesnt let execution for all21:12
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, https://www.computerhope.com/unix/uumask.htm21:13

ChunkzZthat's after I ran tomreyn's command.21:14
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, and does it show up now?21:14
ChunkzZidk, it's not a movie/video file21:14
tomreynChunkzZ: actually you could add your user to the qbittorrent-nox group, too.21:14
lordcirth__tomreyn, oh, good point21:14
tomreynsudo adduser $USER qbittorrent-nox21:15
ChunkzZThe user `odroid' is already a member of `qbittorrent-nox'.21:15
tomreyn+ logout (maybe restart gdm also) + login21:16
EriC^^maybe the program isnt running as the user 'odroid'21:16
ChunkzZhow do I check EriC^^ ?21:16
EriC^^try 'cat /etc/passwd' and see if there's anything like the program name21:17
tomreynaccording to this message, i assume "odroid" is the user account ChunkzZ operates at. and that makes me think this is not ubuntu.21:17
lordcirth__I asked him that. He said it was, for what that's worth...21:18
ChunkzZit's ubuntu...21:18
tomreyninstalled how?21:18
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, so why is the account 'odroid'?21:18
ChunkzZbecause I named it that?21:18
lordcirth__It just sounds a lot like it's running on Android or something.21:19
ChunkzZidk what that means ^ :/21:19
EriC^^looks like this is the user minidlna, so sudo adduser minidlna qbittorrent-nox21:20
lordcirth__ChunkzZ, I did ask what user the minidlna server was running as...21:23
ChunkzZI don't remember that...21:25
tomreynChunkzZ: i don't want to be too strict now, but for the future please be aware that ubuntu systems we can support here are only those listed on the channel topic, installed using the ISOs on releases.ubuntu.com. custom installers and HDD / sd card images (like I assume you used) as well as ISOs hosted by third parties (unless amthcing the official ISOSs checksums) may have been modified, and thus can't be supported here.21:28
tomreyn(you can still ask for help in ##linux with those.)21:29
ChunkzZnow qbittorrent won't work.. sigh.21:30

gislavedlordcirth_ is there an automount eq for ubuntu ? not autofs as it doesn't seem to support glusterfs type21:55
ChunkzZtomreyn: so I can't get help here? lol21:55
gislavedoops lordcirth_ :)21:55
ChunkzZit's still not seeing the file I grabbed... permission denied.21:56
staxxxAnyone recommend a good resource for beginners to ubuntu on android?21:56
tomreynChunkzZ: not if you don't run a supported ubuntu release, no.21:56
ChunkzZtomreyn: this is an ubuntu release lmao21:56
staxxxDifference between supported and un?21:57
tomreynsee /topic and what i explained above21:57
staxxxI got mine thru a termux apt install from github21:57
gislavedI need a listener like autofs that can work with glusterfs21:57
ekidoI have a strange problem21:58
staxxxMe too ekido21:58
ekidoI was booting from live usb stick, everything was fine21:58
ekidothen I plugged in my internal SSD, but then it prompted to Busybox21:59
tomreynstaxxx: since you weren't ther earlier: ubuntu systems we can support here are only those listed on the channel topic, installed using the ISOs on releases.ubuntu.com. custom installers and HDD / sd card images (like I assume you used) as well as ISOs hosted by third parties (unless matching the official ISO checksums) may have been modified, and thus can't be supported here.21:59
ekidoI removed the SSD, but BusyBox is still there21:59
OerHeksekido, certainly strange, one does not hotswap an internal hdd/ssd22:00
staxxxOk sorry. Idk what im using. Total noob here was just wondering if anyone knew a good tutorial so i dont bug anyone with noobosicty22:00
ekidoI did not hotswap, I turned off the computer between boots22:01
OerHeksoh oke :-D22:01
tomreyn!terminal | staxxx22:01
ubottustaxxx: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. In Unity or GNOME, search the dash for "terminal" and press ENTER. Other desktops: Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal (MATE), K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE), or Menu -> Accessories -> LXTerminal (LXDE). Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal22:01
OerHeksafter adding the ssd, did you went into the bios, and out?22:01
OerHekssome machines do not accept a device without bios entry22:02
ekidooh, ok, no I didn't22:02
tomreynstaxxx: your installation is not supported here, but you can ask your questions in ##linux22:02
staxxxThanks tomreyn!22:02
gislavedus ubuntu capable of remount a network filesystem when it cannot connect ?22:03
EriC^^ekido: maybe the live usb was on its way out22:04
ekidoEriC^^, what do you mean by that?22:04
EriC^^ekido: the usb is damaged and has a bad image right now22:05
am_i was in here earlier22:05
EriC^^did you change any bios options at all before trying the ssd22:05
am_oh hey dude22:06
am_yea i cant see anything22:06
am_related to windows22:06
am_ive got a list of the disks in my system but thats it22:07
ekidoEriC^^, no I didn't change any bios options22:07
tomreyngislaved: you can't mount a network file system where the server is not reachable. why would you?22:07
ekidoI wouldn't exactly know which ones22:07
ekidoOnChip SATA Type maybe?22:08
ekidoBut it stil seems so odd to me that BusyBox is still there after I removed the SSD22:08
tomreynam_: hi, what's the issue you're trying to solve, please sum up. also discuss the ubuntu version you're running.22:08
am_its ubuntu 1622:08
tomreyn!yy.mm | am22:08
ubottuam: Ubuntu version numbers are: YY.MM (YY=release year,MM=release month). Each year sees two releases, so just specifying YY is imprecise. See also https://www.ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle22:08
tomreynam_: ^22:09
am_yea sry thats as much as i can tell you22:09
tomreynam_: nc termbin.com 9999 < <(lsb_release -ds;cat /proc/{version,cmdline};)22:09
am_i cant boot22:09
gislavedtomreyn glusterfs uses backup servers22:09
OerHeksam_, perhaps your windows is using exfat https://itsfoss.com/mount-exfat/22:09
am_well ill explain22:10
am_so i was wanting to uninstall my copy of ububtu22:11
tomreyngislaved: so?22:11
am_so i just wiped the partition it was installed on22:11
gislavedtomreyn so if it listens it could connect to the backup when the mounted one fails22:11
am_but now i can only boot in to grub rescue22:11
mikjaerHow do i get ubuntu to not load the ordinary gui and use .xinit instead?22:12
am_somone here told me to create a live usb with windows on it, so i did that but its not showing up in uefi22:12
EriC^^ekido: do you get the try install ubuntu menu when it first boots?22:12
mikjaerHow do i get ubuntu to not load the ordinary gui and use .xinitrc instead?22:13
ekidoOk, I now did ESC on the boot screen: I get this error22:13
am_i can see the usb in disk management tho22:13
EriC^^am_: how did you create the usb?22:13
ekido /init line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found22:13
ekidoand  /init line 7: can't open /dev/sda: No medium found22:13
am_theres a tool from the microsoft wesite22:13
EriC^^am_: try a different usb port22:13
ircarcsmikjaer: disable the sddm / xdm / gdm service ?22:13
EriC^^and try pressing f1222:14
am_trid 222:14
am_tried 222:14
am_so idk22:14
am_ill try again now just in case22:14
EriC^^am_: ports or usbs?22:14
gislavedtomreyn so what is your solution then ?22:14
am_but any ideas otherwise?22:14
xut_am: use Rufus.22:14
tomreyngislaved: the client will try connecting to first volume file server initially. if this fails at some point, it will try connecting to the backupvolfile-server22:14
am_man nah i only got 1 usb lol22:14
gislavedtomreyn sure but where to set both ?22:14
gislavedin fstab ?22:14
am_i had to go to my cousins to use his internet connection instead of my bad mobile internet lmao22:15
EriC^^am_: see if usb booting is turned on in the bios22:15
tomreyngislaved: sure, in fstab, as mount options, or on the command line if you use the mount command.22:15
gislavedtomreyn eh ? fstab always uses mount ?22:16
EriC^^am_: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1005604/unable-to-boot-usb-on-gigabyte-mother-board22:16
EriC^^ekido: if the ssd is removed then the usb is being booted, i'd think it went bad22:16
tomreyngislaved: yes it does. https://docs.gluster.org/en/v3/Administrator%20Guide/Setting%20Up%20Clients/#mounting-volumes22:16
EriC^^ekido: are you sure there's no other hdd in the pc?22:17
gislavedtomreyn eh, that is not what I asked... or stated22:17
ekidoEriC^^, I have the open PC in front of me, there is nothing22:17
tmrolandhow do i remove "software updater" and "software and updates" gtk apps? got installed by some other package22:17
ekidoExcept for a DVD drive22:18
ekidowhich is empty22:18
EriC^^ekido: must be the usb then22:18
tomreyngislaved: the documentation discusses how to set backupvolfile-server, and this is exactly what you asked.22:18
EriC^^ekido: try making the live usb again preferrably with a different usb22:19
ekidook, thank you22:19
gislavedtomreyn no I asked using autofs to make it always workable without human interaction... now you saif fstab could do the same... as long I use mount... I stated... does fstab use mount then ?22:19
gislavedso... how to do in fstab to make sure it works ?22:20
ekidoI'll try that and possibly come back later22:20
am_im back22:20
am_yea i tried a different port22:20
am_no result22:20
am_weird because i was just using the same usb for ubuntu22:21
tomreyngislaved: this must be a misunderstanding, i did not state that fstab does the same as autofs. /etc/fstab is a configuration file, used by the "mount" command, and autofs is a software.22:21
gislavedtomreyn true!22:30
jcottonso I remapped caps lock to backspace using gnome-tweak-tool22:30
jcottonand it works everywehre /execpt/ VSCode22:30
gislavedtomreyn issue is, could I set all those options in the fstab as well... I wonder22:30
Sleakergislaved: it's probably related to this: https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode/issues/2399122:32
tomreyntmroland: sudo apt-get --simulate -y purge update-manager-core22:32
jcottonSleaker: was that meant for me?22:32
Sleakerjcotton: yes sorry.22:32
gislavedSleaker ?22:32
Sleakersuggestd to take up the issue with vscode team.22:32
gislavedSleaker you owe me beer now, lots of it... so I can make friend here by sharing it :P22:32
Sleakergislaved: why would I owe you beer?22:33
gislavedSleaker you wasted my time ;)22:33
tomreyngislaved: you can set mount options in /etc/fstab, not autofs options. autofs is still a separate software which uses a separate configuration file and adds the additional feature hwere file systems are automatically mounted upon access (if needed).22:33
gislavedtomreyn autofs options is not the case here, the mount/glusterfs options are22:34
tomreyngislaved: what are you trying to do?22:34
gislavedtomreyn here it says we can... fstab method22:34
tomreynsee above22:35
gislavedyeah you describe it different/wrong/terrible... you owe me beer now as well and I can give a party ;)22:36
saint_anyone know how i can mount a sysV files system on ubuntu ?22:36
gislavedsaint_ very solid glue ?22:37
kk4ewtsaint please take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SysVinit_to_Systemd_Cheatsheet22:37
saint_kk4ewt thank you22:37
saint_kk4ewt actually that does not answer my question22:37
Some_PersonI don't suppose there's likely a way to recover a source code file I just deleted that I spent all day writing, is there?22:37
saint_been trying to mount the file system using -t sysv22:38
tomreynsaint_: https://superuser.com/questions/894450/mount-sysv-filesystem-under-linux22:38
saint_but mount wnot accept it22:38
saint_tomreyn i checked this one already . not working.22:38
jcottonSome_Person: i mean generally file deletion just marks the space as unused22:38
jcottonthe data is still there until it's overwritten (or TRIM'd away for SSDs)22:38
Some_Personjcotton: Anything I can try?22:39
Some_PersonI really, really don't want to be up past midnight rewriting it :(22:39
jcottonmaybe look ehre22:39
qwebirc66124Hey. I'm having some trouble with running multiple gpu's on ubuntu 18.10. I have a nvidia 1080 on my main monitor, and then a single nvidia 1050ti running my other two. It would be very appreciated if i could get some hellp22:39
jcottonand regardless take this as a lesson to ahve backups and source control22:39
tomreynsaint_: what does "file -s /dev/..." say about the underlying block device?22:40
tomreynsaint_: and which ubuntu release are you running.22:40
gislavedtomreyn does mount -t glusterfs, so also the fstab, use FUSE, so the gluster client ?22:41
gislavednormally you use a .vol for that....22:41
qwebirc40201Having some issues with higher system CPU usage with 10Gbps NIC vs 1Gbps NIC under the same load, and I'm wondering what tuning parameters I am missing22:41
saint_tomreyn https://pastebin.com/Ya41sW6J22:41
tomreyngislaved: what does the documentation i pointed you to say about it?22:41
saint_you see that fdisk shows it as GNU HURD or SYSV22:42
saint_while file -s shows it as DOS/MBR22:42
saint_but I know for a fact that it s a SCO/SysV file system22:42
tomreyn<tomreyn> saint_: and which ubuntu release are you running?22:43
gislavedtomreyn should do, will use fstab but fstab  initiates the client, which is fine... I wonder if it will retry the master again if the backup fails, etc22:43
saint_tomreyn Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS22:44
tomreyngislaved: i do not know. if it's not stated in the documentation, maybe just give it a try if you can simulate it.22:45
tomreynsaint_: on 16.04.6 is supported, please install the missing updates.22:45
gislavedtomreyn yes need to do so anyways :)  I'm already on GD2, did you try that yet ? pretty amazing good22:45
saint_tomreyn will do. thanks22:46
tomreyngislaved: i don't use glusterfs at this time. enjoy.22:48
gislavedtomreyn thanks! https://github.com/rohantmp/gd2-testing22:48
gislavedeasy peasy!22:48
ekidoEriC^^, I now have the solution. BIOS had DVD drive in #1 Boot Priority and somehow this messed everythin up (although it is empty)22:49
Some_PersonIs there anything I can try to undelete these files without having to get a live Linux environment running? I figure I probably don't have time to both try to undelete files and reimplement this shit if it fails, at least not without pulling an all-nighter22:50
Some_Personunless it's super-super-quick to do the former22:51
Some_PersonAnd what are my chances at success with the tools, all of which seem to require the partition be unmounted?22:52
Some_PersonPossibly complicating things: I use full-dick encrypton22:53
Some_Personfull-disk encryption22:53
EriC^^ekido: i see, thanks for sharing, glad it worked out22:54
qwebirc51279What is the command to login to nick serv?22:55
Yushatak /msg nickserv identify PASS22:55
fleabeard/ns id PASS22:55
Yushatakoh it can be easier?22:55
EriC^^Some_Person: you could try using photorec to recover it, using the decrypted /dev/mapper22:55
Yushataknice to know22:55
Yushatakbeen using IRC for years and never knew22:55
qwebirc51279Ahh, thanks :)22:55
EriC^^Some_Person: or possibly testdisk, i'd try that first as you can browse to the file and see if it's recoverable, or ext-undelete, photorec would recover all text files you've ever deleted, then you could grep them to find your file i guess22:56
Some_PersonEriC^^: Does that recover specific files, or does it just grab whatever it can?22:56
Some_PersonI need 2 text files. I've probably deleted shittons of text files22:56
EriC^^Some_Person: it recovers files based on their headers, you specify22:56
EriC^^try testdisk/ext-undelete, with ext-undelete you can specify the deleted date i think22:57
Some_Personextundelete seems to require unmounting t22:57
EriC^^oh, try testdisk then22:58
EriC^^Some_Person: actually, unmount it and use the /dev/mapper22:58
EriC^^with undelete22:58
qwebirc79077Nickserv says I'm identified for ASMJunkie, but is still showing up my temporary name22:58
EriC^^qwebirc79077: /nick <newnick>22:59
=== qwebirc79077 is now known as ASMJunkie
ASMJunkieSo if anyone is willing to go down the rabbit hole of nvidia driver issues, I could use the help23:00
Some_PersonEriC^^: It's my root filesystem, so the only way I'm unmounting it is by downloading and setting up a live environment23:09
EriC^^Some_Person: go for it23:10
EriC^^Some_Person: if you care about the file, at this point you shouldn't be mounting the filesystem as read-write no matter what23:11
Some_PersonPhew... it seems I'm lucky. photorec got the code back at least23:11
jcottonSome_Person: now go ahead and make backups and check it into source control23:14
Some_Personjcotton: Indeed23:14
Some_PersonStill looking for the other file, although that's less of a big deal... maybe an hour to recreate instead of a god damn day's worth of work23:15
Some_PersonIt also looks like the recovered version doesn't have some of the last changes for some reason... I had just finished a refactoring when I idiotically deleted it. Still, not as big a deal as losing it23:16
EriC^^maybe there are multiple files23:17
jcottonI would check it over to make sure there's no garbage in itr23:17
EriC^^or possibly it hadn't sync'd with the disk before you deleted23:17
gislavedtomreyn yes fstab helps me :D23:17
tomreynSome_Person: generally, when you need to try to undelete file system objects, what you need to do as fast as possible is to prevent further writes to this file system. that's because any additional writes to the file system (which can occur several times a second on /home and other file systems) will remarkably decrease your chances of recovery.23:26
gislavedtomreyn sleep well!23:27
tomreynSome_Person: so next time you do this, the first command you need to run is sudo mount -o remount,ro /path/to/device/holiding/that/filesystem23:27
gislavedkisses and hugs!23:27
tomreyngislaved: you, too23:27
shibbolethlatest fwupdate *security upgrade* is dropping an efi binary on the esp partition?23:29
tomreynSome_Person: ...and then you save any open / unsaved files elsewhere and don't remount (or reboot into) this file system again until you recovered the data or created a file system image to recover the data from later.23:30
jcottonshibboleth: huh?23:31
tomreynshibboleth: are you asking for confirmation there, since this looks more like a statement than a question? if you are asking for confirmatiuon, you will need to provide context / details23:31
shibbolethit is a statemt23:32
shibbolethit is a statement23:32
tomreynthen it's badly placed here23:32
jcottonwhy the question mark then?23:32
shibbolethrelated question: what the actual fuck?23:32

jcottonyou're asking why UEFI updates are that way?23:32
hggdhshibboleth: please mind your language23:32
Fieldyhello, i've installed ubuntu server I set up a normal usuername, and its password, at install time. after install i can log in and use sudo. but if I change the password of this account with passwd, after that I can never use sudo again (auth failure). any idea what i'm missing here?23:33
shibbolethno, that is not my question23:33
SvetaFieldy: what does "id username" tell you, with "username" replaced with the name of the user whose password you have changed?23:34
shibboleththat's called a *feature update*, not a *security upgrade*23:34
OerHekshttps://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fwupdate yes, libfwup will create a new EFI Boot entry to launch the firmware updating EFI application.23:34
FieldySveta: other than a group named after the user, these additional groups: 4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),108(lxd)23:35
jcottonI have no idea what shibboleth is getting at23:35
tomreynFieldy: just a side note, the version number is probably 18.04.2. second minor release of the 18.04 time based release version (released in april=04 2018)23:35
hggdhshibboleth: still not something for here. If you disagree, you can email the developers23:35
shibbolethin short: it is now much easier to install efi rootkits through ubuntu, the platform for which was released an a *security upgrade*23:35
Fieldytomreyn: ahh yes you're right, thanks23:35
jcottonshibboleth: UEFI updates are signed23:35
hggdhshibboleth: enough. Go elsewhere to discuss this. For example, #ubuntu-hardened23:35
jcottonthe firmware verifies the update before installing the update23:35
shibbolethjust like friggin microsoft called their "telemetry for win7/win8" as a *security upgrade*23:35
shibboleth"bend over and take it"23:36
OerHeksshibboleth, you could think the same about osx and windows10 .. FUD23:36
Fieldyshibboleth: lol yeah so lame23:36
tomreynFieldy: what you'Re describing there is indeed a non standard, unexpected, behaviour.23:36
Fieldytomreyn: yea i don't recall having this issue with the previous long term release/support (i forget which i'm tired)23:36
SvetaFieldy: the user being in the sudo group is sufficient23:37
FieldySveta: yeah that's what i was thinkin23:38
shibboleth"efi updates are signed"23:38
shibbolethyeah, see...23:38
hggdhshibboleth: enough already.23:38
tomreynFieldy: how did you install?23:38
Fieldyhowever I did a re-install, verified i could sudo with the users pass set at install time. then I sudo-d to root, used passwd to change that users pass, and logged in as the user with the new pass. i was then unable to sudo23:38
shibboleththe ppl who will be most prone to mess with your firmware don't exactly view that as a major hurdle23:38
Fieldytomreyn: ubuntu-18.04.2-live-server-amd64.iso23:39
Fieldymd5sum fcbcc756a1aa5314d52e882067c4ca6a23:39
tomreynFieldy: thanks, i'll see if i can reproduce this.23:40
Fieldytomreyn: oh nice, thank you for your time! let me know if there's anything else i can do to help23:40
Fieldyi'm also going to try something different, i'll let you know if anything changes23:40
tomreynFieldy: if you can provide exact commands you used (you can redact the user name you used, if needed), this would help.23:40
=== drrzmr is now known as holoturoide
Fieldytomreyn: sure. 1) I ssh'd in as <usuername> after install and reboot 2) I did sudo -i su - (we can haggle over details but this has always worked for me). entered the users pass, as set at install. got root. can also run anything else with sudo 3) exit, back to the normal user 4) change the password with passwd 5) can no longer sudo -i su - (sudo: 1 incorrect password attempt)23:43
Fieldytomreyn: the only thing I can imagine causing an issue is that i'm using exceptionally long passwords. i will install again and replicate, using a much shorter pass (the one changed to)23:43
Fieldyhowever i use those other earlier installs without issue23:43
Fieldyer. I use those on earlier installs without issue23:44
Fieldyi will try a few things on this very fast vm setup i've got23:45
tomreynthanks. when you say exceptionally long passwords, can you say how long it should be at least?23:46
tomreynalso, did you install any pending updates before you changed the password?23:46
Fieldytomreyn: in the 260 chars area. alpha, numeric, "special" chars but nothing funny like high ascii chars23:46
Fieldytomreyn: no, no updates23:46
Fieldyinstall is finishing up on test rig, i'll keep the passwords reasonable and keep everything else the same23:48
tomreynFieldy: if you can break it again, can you try installing all pending updates, rebooting, and trying to reproduce again?23:50
Fieldytomreyn: sure23:50
saint_tomreyn i just updated to 16.04.6 and still can't mount sysV file system23:52
tomreynsaint_: what's the error message?23:54
saint_tomreyn same thing23:57
