Fieldytomreyn: i was able to reproduce the issue both pre-updates and post-updates00:01
tomreynFieldy: i reproduced this. there seems to be a maximum password length.00:01
Fieldyi'll try with a shorter pass now00:01
Fieldytomreyn: it worked for me with a 128 char pass, same charcter set (alphanumeric, "special" chars, but no high-ansi or anything fancy like that)00:03

Fieldycurious that it was ok in earlier vers :P00:08
=== holoturoide is now known as hltrd
tomreynFieldy: my understanding is that there should be no maximum password length.00:12
Fieldytomreyn: that's what i thought too. sounds like something changed and there is an 8 bit limitation somewhere00:14
Fieldyon earlier installs i've used passwords in the 700 char range etc. do i really need that? no, but it's fun ;P00:14
SvetaFieldy, tomreyn, that looks like a clever bug, I'm glad you found it00:14
Fieldywell, i'm glad to help! it's a killer server distro. my default.00:15
tomreynFieldy: on my test vm, i failed to snapshot before setting the long password. i now tried to guess what to enter to be able to "sudo -i" again, but cutting the overly long password to 255 (also tried 256, 254) characters did not help.00:15
Fieldytomreyn: ahh yeah, good test. i didn't think it would be that simple. a hash or whatever the heck is probably being computed off the full length, but some other thing computed off the truncated / corrupted one, and that's where probs start00:16
tomreynFieldy: would you file a bug report later (I'd prefer), or should i?00:16
Fieldytomreyn: i could do that, it would certainly be later but i won't forget00:16
tomreynFieldy: yes, that's worse than you'd think.00:16
Fieldyagree. it may indicate some other bad stuff going on elsewhere00:17

ubottusuissues: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:42

tomreynxyz111: when you install a package, it's package debpendencies need to be satisfied. i.e. if a pacage depends on other packages, those will also be installed. there are direct dependencies which the package defines itself, those can be listed with "apt-cache show kdenlive | grep ^Depends" or just "apt depends kdenlive", and there are indirect dependencies, i.e. kdenlive depends on a package which itself depends on another package. those can be00:49

Lopetomreyn, there definitely is one.01:21
tomreynLope: not in the commands you said you used to setup the chroot01:21

Lopetomreyn, huh?01:23
Lopetomreyn, chroot /tmp/chroot01:23
tomreynLope: when you use chroot to change into an existing installation (or one you are about to create), you need to both mount those virtual file systems you posted above, but also mount the pyhsical file systems as they are listed in the to be repaired systesm' /etc/fstab01:23
Lopeoh, before that I mounted the root filesystem at chroot01:23
Lopemount /dev/vgx/lvy /tmp/chroot01:24
kubkdeLope, is your boot on a separate partition? I can't really tell with your setup01:24
LopeI've got sda1 and sdb1 = md0    then I've got sda2  sdb2 = md101:25

tomreynLope: what's in md0?01:25
kubkdeAre you using MBR or GPT?01:25
LopeBecause the grub install is not completing without error01:26
Lopemd0 is /boot01:26
LopeThere's a bunch of crap in /boot01:26
LopeCan I delete it all?01:26
tomreyndid you mount md0 to /tmp/chroot/boot ?01:26
LopeIt's got kernel and initramfs and so on in there. So I probably can't delete that stuff.01:26
LopeBut I've tried rm -rf /boot/grub before running the grub install01:27
Lopetomreyn, i did01:27
kubkdeYou need those to boot, so I would not delete them. If you don't mind, you could try systemd-boot. 'bootctl install'01:28
tomreynyou should also have bind mounted /dev/pts01:28
Lopeinside the chroot `mount | grep boot` says /dev/md0 on /boot type ext2 ....01:28
LopeI've never used systemd-boot01:28
LopeIs it an alternative to grub?01:29
Lopeokay I can do pts01:29
tomreyntheoretically, yes, and it may work for simple configurations01:29
tomreynbut generally grub is recommended here01:29
Huliohi guys01:29
Lopetomreyn, but surely /dev/pts will be there because /dev is bind mounted?01:30
kubkdeAlthough it would probably be more difficult to go through than now. It's an alternative, but mainly for GPT tables. There's a ton of alternatives you can try: LILO, Syslinux, rEFInd. I never use GRUB because it doesn't support the filesystems I prefer01:30
tomreynLope: there's an easy way to find out, but the answer will be 'no'01:30
tomreynLope: what'S the reason you're doing a debootstrap installation rather than using an ISO installation?01:31
LopeIt's on a remote dedicated server01:31

nueo/ does anyone have experience with fusefs where say, 100 client nodes mount a single server node? i seem to be having issues mounting more then 63 clients01:58
tomreynLope: you just learnt the hard way that you need to have current backups before you start editing partition tables.01:59

tomreyn(I'm not offering to guide you there.)02:01
tomreynnohop: so you have some undiclosed version of ubuntu running as the main system on bare metal, and you have some undisclosed virtualization software with a windows guest system which is installed directly on a physical disk?02:03
nohoptomreyn: I run ntu 16.04 (n (now 18.04, i'm not sure if the update to 18.04 did it, but it happened many times in 16.04). I run windows 7 in Qemu/KVM. I'm using a physical disk partition as the 'disk image' for the virtual machine.02:06
nohopI did a grep -r on both /etc/ and /boot with the disk (sda), disk-id AND disk-uuid. that grub line seems the only relevant hit. But it seems strange to me that that could cause grub to want to write to that partition.02:07
tomreynnohop: you'Re saying you run Ubuntu 16.04, but you also mention an "update to 18.04", so which one is correct?02:07
nohopSorry, not a disk partition. An actual disk.02:08
tomreynnohop: if os-prober found the windows installation (or any other bootable installation) on the physical disk the windows installation is on, it may well be that it installed the grub boot loader to this disk.02:09
nohoptomreyn: It happened multiple times while running 16.04. I upgraded to 18.04 today, and after a reboot the VM's botosector was overwritten again. I have no way to tell if that upgrade to 18.04 one did it, or if some previous apt-get upgrade did it. I don't reboot often enough to know when something breaks.02:09
nohoptomreyn: Why would it do this, and can I kill the os-prober? My 'bare metal' only ever boots to Linux.02:10
tomreynnohop: i suggest uninstalling os-prober to prevent this from happening, unless you need it to keep the boot stanza updated so you can boot the physical system to windows.02:11
nohopI dd'd images of the bootsectors now, so that it will be an easy fix next time (This is a BITCH with windows 10.)02:11

tomreynDeihmos: not that i heard of, and it would seem unlikely. generally livepatch is a Canonical offering, we can't go into much detail in here.02:40
tomreyn!livepatch | Deihmos02:40
ubottuDeihmos: Canonical Livepatch is a service offered by Canonical for 64 bit 14.04 and higher installs that modifies the currently running kernel for updates without the need to restart. More information can be found at https://ubottu.com/y/livepatch and https://www.ubuntu.com/server/livepatch02:40
kubkdenohop, when compiling the Linux kernel, there's an option to have KVM passthrough by default. The only things necessary on the user end is adding which devices to pass through in /etc/modprobe.d02:41
kubkdeBut tbh I'm not entirely sure what you mean by calling qemu if KVM is the hypervisor. I should read more...02:43
nohopkubkde: I never recompiled my kernel for it. And, yes, you do need to tell it which devices to pass throuhg. Probably in your ramdisk (before any other drivers that might use the device are loaded)02:43
nohopqemu can use KVM02:43
kubkdeRight. Should I be blacklisting my integrated gfx so it doesn't take priority? I'm afraid if I do that I wouldn't have anything on screen02:44
nohopYou definitely should prevent that driver from being loaded, yes.02:45
nohopYou won't be able to pass it through at all otherwise.02:45
kubkdeGreat, ty02:46
nohopkubkde: A better way is to edit /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and use the pci_stub02:46
nohopFor example, in my case, I added the line "pci_stub ids=10de:1c02,10de:10f1" to that file. Which makes the pci_stub drive (a dummy driver, basically) 'grab' those ID's before any other driver can.02:47
nohop(those are the ID's of my GPU and it's companion audio device)02:47
kubkdeIf my GPU doesn't have an audio PCI ID, is it fine to have only one ID added?02:50
nohopit's just a comma-separated list. Any number of ID's is fine.02:51
nohopYou have to pay attention to IOMMU groups though.02:51

RandolfLogin takes approximately 10 seconds on my new HP Envy x360 laptop (Intel i7 CPU, and nVidia GeForce video).  Then, when I go to shut down the system crashes at the last step and the CPU fan starts to run to get rid of the heat.  But, if I don't login, the shutdown/reboot process works without any problem.04:51

lockedcan I get help with ssh?09:20
ayekatdepends on the question :-)09:21
lockedI have two laptops, one at work and one at home, they can connect via ssh when they are both on eduroam from the same building, but not if one of them is connected to any other eduroam (other university) or from home09:22
lockedcan't ping either09:22
mouseslocked: does the one @ home have SSH port 22 (or whatever port you use) allowed to pass both software and/or hardware firewall?09:24
lockedI can connect via teamviewer now on a distance. but it would be much more simple to use scp or ssh09:24
ayekatthat's probably because in the first case they're both in the same network, so most connections are allowed between machines inside09:24
mouses^^ this09:24
mousesif you are going network to network, you'll need to open a port09:24
ayekati.e. ask the eduroam maintainers to poke a hole into the network firewall for your machines, which is unlikely to happen09:25
aephi. any idea what i need to get callgrind to see debug symbols for C++/rust code on ubuntu? works by default on any other distro so i'm kinda lost09:25
lockedi checked the sshd_confid port 22 is commented, I can try to uncomment on both sides09:26
aep(even with the same valgrind version and the same target binary of course)09:26
ayekatlocked: no, the problem is that between the machines (i.e. between the two eduroam networks), there is a firewall that is blocking the connections09:28
locked@ayekat, so I can't solve it ?09:28
ayekatlocked: not really09:28
ayekatlocked: you'd need an intermediary machine (e.g. a server) outside the two networks that both your computers can access, and use that to bridge the connection09:29
ayekatlocked: which is what teamviewer appears to do, which is why that still works09:30
lockedI have access to a cluster, both machines can connect to that one but can't bridge. for example is I use ssh name@ip_second_machine, doesn't connect09:30
ayekatlocked: if both machines have access to the same machine, it may be worth looking at the -R option in ssh09:31
ayekatthen again... I assume you don't have root access to that cluster?09:31
lockedno root access on the cluster, no09:32
mouseslocked: best bet is going to be talking to the network admin/staff, in my humble opinion09:33
ayekatthe idea would be essentially: from machine A, ssh to machine B with the option -R {portnumber} (the syntax is a bit less trivial) - now any connection to that port {portnumber} on machine B will ssh-connect to machine A09:34
ayekatthe problem is that if the cluster is sitting behind a firewall, {portnumber} is probably not accessible either, so that is moot09:34
lockedthanks guys. I will send an email to the ITC but I ma quite sure they will not open any way for me to connect from home. I the worst case I will stick with teamviewer.09:35
ayekatnot to mention the question of whether you would be allowed to do such things - I don't think the cluster maintainers would be too happy if their machines were used for other purposes like this09:35
lockedtrue @ayekat09:35
ayekathonestly, I don't hink the network administrators are willing to poke a hole into their firewalls just so a random person can SSH from one machine to another :-}09:36
ayekat(and even if, you'd need to ask *two* administration teams, which reduces the likelihood even more)09:36
ayekatat least if I were the admin, I would reject09:37

Mead I have 18.04 currently installed, if I run the command "apt full-upgrade" would this install a newer number version of ubuntu? And what version would it take me to?12:29

EriC^^Mead: sudo do-release-upgrade could update you to 18.1012:30
pragmaticenigmaolspookishmagus: While you might be able to find an archived version of Ubuntu in a smaller format, if you intend to install it, you won't be able to update to the newer version. Older versions are going to be suspectible to many unpatched vulnerabilities. Please use care with your approach12:30
Meadand if I just run apt upgrade  it just installs the latest version the apps I have installed, and doesn't touch the OS?12:31
EriC^^Mead: it updates the programs but not the kernel or possibly any other program that needs to remove or install something new to satisfy dependencies12:31
EriC^^Mead: you don't want to upgrade the kernel?12:31
MeadI am trying to grasp what the commands do exactly12:32
gcclinuxLope, you need to try to use a different user first that way we can identify if it is a user security (root) or a config on your sshd (ClientAliveCountMax)12:33

LopeI've never experienced this before.12:35
gcclinuxLope, obvious questions here: ping ? routing? do you have physical access or only remotely?12:37

Guest67332Hey Guys, Maybe be a real silly question, but somehow i have managed to break my desktop. I can still use my sidebar etc. but the desktop is non interactive. i can go through file browser or terminal and add/remove stuff and it appears on the desktop, but i cannot click nor right click on the desktop itself. This may have been a post product of playing around compiz and komorebi at the same time. any ideas how i can unbreak it?13:44
cfhowlettwhat have you tried thus far Guest6733213:46
__Myst__Hi, my brightness seems to get automatically reset to 100% even if i change it?13:46
__Myst__As in, not on reboot, but after a few seconds.13:46
__Myst__I have no crontab13:46
Guest67332Ive been messing around with the compiz settings just incase it caused the crash. Disabled all the "desktop features". Purged Komorebi. Sitting with a, as per ubuntu terms, standard desktop. beside that and checking if the GUI appearance settings would change anything. I havent tried any commands as of yet, my linux file system knowledge is not as great as i want it to be yet, scared to just start throwing commands around. i know 13:50

Guest67332Its not a mouse issue tho, def a software/os issue, as i said earlier, probably my doing while i was checking out different desktop managers etc. This is my work PC where i normally just do recoveries and things Microsoft cant.

pragmaticenigmaGuest67332: What settings were you trying to change with the desktop managers? Did you also notice the warning that comes with the compiz config saying that it will potentially break things if you are not careful14:19
Guest67332Yeah no i understand this is probably all entirely my fault, its not one big train smash if i cant fix it, this is only just my work PC, i can reload if push comes to shove. I was experimenting with feautures of Compiz for a client of mine. Mostly the Cube desktops and the desktop related features. I am slowly going through settings and seeing if any will fix my problem. Was just curious to find out if there is a simple solution l14:23
lotuspsychjeGuest67332: after enable some compiz settings, you need a reboot..is that whats happening?14:25
lotuspsychjeGuest67332: some of those features can make your desktop lock, like wobble windows etc..14:25

raubpragmaticenigma: is there a way to do that *without* adding it to the sources list?14:35
pragmaticenigmaraub: It might help to know why you need the list, perhaps there is a more direct approach to answering your question14:36
raubpragmaticenigma: as mentioned before, there is a package being listed in the preseed config file I cannot find by simply searching for the name in the iso.14:37
ChunkzZQuick question, when in April is the new Ubuntu getting released?14:37
pragmaticenigmaraub: the first message I see from you occurred about 10 minutes ago. I have been in channel for the last 2 hours... there was no previous message14:38
leftyfbChunkzZ: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DiscoDingo/ReleaseSchedule14:38
pragmaticenigmaChunkzZ: When it's ready, we're volunteers here, we do not know the precise release schedule. The link leftyfb provided is an estimate, there may still be delays before it officially released.14:39
raubpragmaticenigma: you probably missed it because it was a reply to lotuspsychje :)14:39
ChunkzZleftyfb: will 19.04 be an lts release?14:40
leftyfbChunkzZ: no14:40
ChunkzZSo 9 months support?14:40
leftyfbChunkzZ: https://www.ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle14:41
lotuspsychjeChunkzZ: you just fixed issues on a derivative, now you are going to test 19.04?14:41
raubpragmaticenigma: in any case, someone created this install iso and it is not working, so I plan on just sucking the packages and installing them on a fresh ubuntu install matching the release number14:41
ChunkzZleftyfb: thanks14:41
pragmaticenigmaraub: more details are needed, like what is the package not being found, you're withholding information that would help the volunteers help you.14:42
leftyfbraub: use the official Ubuntu images. Otherwise, you won't find support here.14:42
twanAre there general mirror problems with archive.u.c & security.u.c?14:42
pragmaticenigmaraub: if the image is bad, it's bad, Build a new one14:42
leftyfbtwan: yes, they're working on it14:42
ChunkzZlotuspsychje: who said anything about testing 19.04?!14:42
twanleftyfb: Great, thx!14:42
raubpragmaticenigma: the issue is that you are trying to change the question. I just want to list the available packages in an install iso like I would do in by, say looking at http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/14:54
raubI think I just answered my question!14:54
R13oseHow do I fix the errors in terminal when updating and upgrading?  E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?14:56
cfhowlett!aptlock | R13ose14:56
ubottuR13ose: If an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »14:56
leftyfbR13ose: reboot14:56
cfhowlettthat's not even true leftyfb14:57
cfhowlettthis aint' windows.  reboots are not the default remedy14:57
R13oseFor almost all problems in Unix, you shouldn't have to reboot14:57
lotuspsychjeRandolf: can we help you?14:58
leftyfbcfhowlett: whatever has a lock on it should release it. If not, then the lock file will need to be deleted manually. Though if something is using it, then you'll need to track that down instead. A reboot will certainly clear out whatever is using it and if it's still after a reboot, then it's safe to delete.14:58
leftyfbSo yes, that is true. That IS a good solution.14:58
Randolflotuspsychje: Actually, I'm having problems with slow logins on a new laptop.  It's an HP Envy x360 which has an i7 CPU and an nVidia GeForce video card.14:59
R13oseThanks cfhowlett that worked out14:59
cfhowlettR13ose, happy2help14:59
lotuspsychjeRandolf: wich chipset of nvidia please?14:59
R13oseHow did the APT front-end crash and my database be locked?14:59
Randolflotuspsychje: And when I shutdown or reboot, the system freezes and the CPU fan starts running instead of the system powering off (or rebooting).14:59
BlueProtomanI have a laptop running Ubuntu 18.10.  My laptop's built-in screen is not displaying anything (and in fact is not even being recognized), but I can output to a monitor via VGA just fine.  Any ideas?14:59
heloare there any reports of repository slowness? i'm having some issues15:00
cfhowlettR13ose, if something didn't complete the sudo process, e.g. an installation, that would do it.15:00
RandolfBut, if I choose shutdown (or reboot) before logging in (i.e., at the login prompt), Ubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS completes the process properly.15:00
RandolfI'll try to find out which chipset I have.15:00
cfhowletthelo, several.  wait for the fix upstream15:00
helogreat, thanks15:00
R13oseWhen is 19.04 coming out?15:00
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: graphics driver installed correctly? sudo lshw -C video15:00

lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: so you have a black screen at boot correct?15:03
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Correct.  And all the timer after.  No weird flashing or glitching or anything.  And my laptop screen was fine last night.15:03

Randolflotuspsychje: I'm still fairly new to Ubuntu.  How can I find that out?15:04
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Don't wanna reconfigure my system like that until I can confirm that this is a driver issue.  How can I diagnose this in more detail?15:05
lotuspsychjeRandolf: the same command i gave you, at bottom15:05
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: if you have a black screen, there's not too many options right, kernels try, nomodeset,..15:06
Randolflotuspsychje: I'm sorry, I must have missed it.  What is the command?15:06
lotuspsychjeRandolf: scroll up please15:06
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: I'll try booting into nomodeset.  However, not even the BIOS screen or GRUB displays on my laptop (they do on the VGA monitor though).15:07
Randolflotuspsychje: Did you mean "sudo lshw -C video"?15:07

BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Within the past two weeks, possibly relevant packages that I have installed or upgraded include mesa-vdpau-drivers, mesa-va-drivers, and nvidia-settings.  This excludes an upgrade I did today *after* I noticed my display problem.15:24
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: can i ask you, where you got 415 from?15:25
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Checking my drivers in Software & Updates15:25
frechdachs69I currently get 'Bad signature' from net-retriever while doing a mini.iso based installation; any idea?15:27
frechdachs69Bad signature from "Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key" ?15:28
pragmaticenigmafrechdachs69: The software mirrors are currently experiencing outages, they are being worked on15:28
frechdachs69pragmaticenigma: ahh ... thx15:28
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: To clarify, I *am* using my nvidia drivers properly right now.  `nvidia-smi` displays information about my GPU.  It's just that my laptop's built-in display isn't working.15:28
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: its not because the drivers are installed properly, they are the best for your system15:29
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Sorry, I don't understand, what do you mean?15:29
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: it means you can install any driver you choose, but that does not mean its the best driver fro your card15:30
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Ah.  Gotcha.15:30
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: so do you recall where you downloaded it from?15:30
Randolflotuspsychje: I'm noticing a lot of "i386" references in the files being downloaded for the nVidia GeForce drivers.  I thought Ubuntu 18.04 LTS was only 64-bit.  I just want to make sure the right files are being downloaded.15:30
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: The graphics-drivers PPA, I think15:31
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: so you just picked latest, or did the ubuntu-drivers autoinstall?15:31
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: I don't remember, but I *have* turned my laptop on and off multiple times since I did install the driver back in February and had no problems15:32
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: im curious wich driver ubuntu proposes for your card, aka: ubuntu-drivers list15:32
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: This is the list http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/HdVrtR5Ffb/15:33
lotuspsychjeRandolf: when ubuntu installs the driver, it takes what it needs15:33
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: lets try a 390 for starters?15:34
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: `ubuntu-drivers devices` suggests 418 http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/ktHn9ZNHZ2/15:34
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: yeah thats reccomended from the ubuntu ppa i presume15:35
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: can you still reach login window, or black screen from boot?15:36
Randolflotuspsychje: Okay.  I've found that apt (which it looks like "ubuntu-drivers autoinstall" is using) has been fully reliable for that.  The repositories are slow today, but that's okay.15:36
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Black screen on my laptop's built-in display, including before Linux starts (i.e. the BIOS menu and GRUB).  Everything works fine on an external VGA monitor.15:37
lotuspsychjeRandolf: after its installed, try a reboot. if you get a black screen use !nomodeset to get in okay15:37
Randolflotuspsychje: Okay, I'll do that.  I don't know where I'd need to enter !nomodeset though, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.15:38
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: allrighty, lets try a nomodeset as a test?15:38
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Okay, how do I do that?15:38
lotuspsychje!nomodeset | BlueProtoman15:39
ubottuBlueProtoman: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter15:39
compdocBlueProtoman, you dont see the bios boot screens?15:39
BlueProtomancompdoc: Not on my laptop's built-in screen.  But I do on a VGA monitor I have connected.15:40
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: you did not push the Fn + F screen to a black screen right?15:41
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Correct.15:41
Croephaare the ubuntu mirrors slow for anyone but me ?15:41
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: think was compdoc suggests, if you dont have screen at bios neither might be faulty hardware15:42
compdoc.BlueProtoman, some laptops have a key combo that can shut off the internal screen15:42
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: If that's the case, I'm extra-confused.  Because my laptop's built-in screen has not been acting weirdly recently.15:43
BlueProtomancompdoc: Which key combos would that be?  Or, alternatively, which little icons should I be looking for on my Fn keys?15:43
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: lets say it this way, ubuntu cant break the screen at bios level15:43
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: That's why I was hesitant to change my drivers, but I need to make sure I'm not crazy.15:43
compdocdepends on the brand, etc. google it for your model'15:43
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: ddi you try to get in grub yet?15:44
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: What, nomodeset?  No, not yet, I'm looking up my laptop model online to see if other people have had this issue15:44
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: no, i mean just a good old grub enter with holding shift15:45
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: I dual-boot with Windows, so I enter GRUB by default anyway15:45
BlueProtoman...though I haven't used Windows in a while.15:45
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: you just said you had a black screen at boot too?15:46
lotuspsychjeBlueProtoman: you see grub, but you cant see bios?15:46
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Laptop's screen is black.  But I can see it on a monitor.  Let me reboot and come back with a picture.15:46
RandolfI had to stop using Windows 10 because it kept crashing itself into blue screens after downloading many hours of updates.  My only regret about switching to Unbuntu Linux 18.04 LTS (which has been rock solid stable for me, and tremendously faster) is that I didn't switch earlier.15:46
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: You would not believe what just happened.15:48
BlueProtomanlotuspsychje: Right as I was about to take a picture to illustrate my problem, my problem went away.15:49
eater9-Some of my desktop processes tend to silently die in the background after a few days (clipit, autokey, pavucontrol). Any recommendations for a way to auto-restart them if they die? I'm looking at Monit but it might be overkill.15:51
pragmaticenigmaeater9-: It might be a good idea to look into the logs to see why they're dying... also, are you sure they're completely dead, and not just a thread failed?15:53
eater9-pragmaticenigma: they seem to be completely dead, and it seems to happen with applications that have a system tray presence when I change monitors15:57
pragmaticenigmaeater9-: Like going from a docking station to just a laptop (or unplugging a monitor to take a laptop mobile)?15:58
eater9-pragmaticenigma: exactly. but it's hard to reproduce reliably16:00
pragmaticenigmaeater9-: While it's the long way round, I would encourage you to file bug reports for each of those. I'm sure others could be experiencing the same issue.16:01
pragmaticenigmaeater9-: I'm wondering if something else is crashing and taking those applets with it16:01
eater9-pragmaticenigma: yeah, docking and undocking this laptop has a number of side effects that right now I'm just trying to work around and/or minimize16:04

JordiGHSomeone must be uploading a massive still-embargoed security fix.16:30
eater9-pragmaticenigma: they're not all tray apps though, pavucontrol for instance. Maybe there's a tool that can notify me when something dies so I can try to find the cause(s)?16:40
pragmaticenigmaeater9-: There are some commands for journalctl that you can use (assuming you're on Ubuntu 18.04 or newer , I'm not sure if anything older has it)16:52
eater9-I am .. what are the commands?16:53
pragmaticenigmaunfortunately I'm not very familiar with them. I just know how to retrieve the previous boot's log16:53
eater9-pragmaticenigma: I don't see anything in the logs pertaining to these dying processes anyway, so I was thinking I need some way to regularly monitor or poll their status16:57
pragmaticenigmaeater9-: I think the tool you mentioned earlier is probably the solution. I think it can send an e-mail/dbus alert when it restarts something16:57
eater9-pragmaticenigma: OK, thanks ... I'll try to get that configured to do what I want16:58

[itchyjunk]Hi, after the `security update` thing i did, it gives `system error detected` message when ever i boot up. But it doesn't tell me what error it is.20:04
[itchyjunk]Is there a way to see what system error it's detecting at boot up?20:05
raverHi is there a repo for ubuntu 18.04 LTS for biboumi 8.3?20:05
raverit is available for 18.10...20:05
striveCheck /var/log/boot.log20:05
lordcirth__raver, sounds like a question for biboumi devs20:07
lordcirth__nevermind, that page says there isn't.20:07
[itchyjunk]Hey, everything seems to have [OK] before it but one item has [*] before it. I can't seem to recognize what the issue was. here is the [*] item: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/bbHxqpSPgY/20:10
lordcirth__[itchyjunk], that doesn't look like a problem to me.20:14
gislavedis it possible to get around a mount like /mnt/foo/bar and have bar owned my root and symlink to it from a folder where another user has rights ?20:15
hggdhgislaved: no. logical link will still depend on the target's permissions20:16
[itchyjunk]Hmm, I do get a pop up when I start my computer though. With a "Report" and "Cancel" option. I've hit the report button before but I don't get any info. I'll screen shot it next time it happens and inquire further.20:16
gislavedmeh that sucks, I need to mount a network share for dovecot20:16
lordcirth__gislaved, symlink permissions are ignored in favor of the file they point to.20:18
gislavedlordcirth__ yeah I just need to give the user rights on bar20:19
gislavedlordcirth_ not possible to do from fstab ?20:19
Kurt-xubuntugislaved you can look at everything you have reported by that report error tool for your current system using the same login method used by ubuntu forums i have done that before20:20
gislavedKurt-xubuntu huh ?20:21
Kurt-xubuntusomeone here can explain it better20:21
Kurt-xubuntuthere is a site where you can go log in and look to see what errors that report error tool in ubuntu has reported20:22
Kurt-xubuntuparden me my brain is mush20:22
lordcirth__gislaved, does the mounted filesystem have POSIX permissions?20:24
Kurt-xubuntuah it was [itchyjunk] who was asking about that20:24
gislavedlordcirth_ nope, I have freeipa in place also20:24
Kurt-xubuntumy bad20:24
[itchyjunk]ahh i see20:26
kuwangerI'm trying to restore my / drive.  For some reason my encrypted home directory isn't automounting.  Does my /home/<user>/ need to be a specific permission to work or is something else possible the issue?20:44
gislavedtomreyn ping20:45
lordcirth__kuwanger, restoring how?20:46
kuwangerlordcirth__: I have a backup from an external HDD that I cp -av'd over.20:47
lordcirth__kuwanger, and this / backup includes /home?20:47
kuwangerThe only thing missing was the actual /home/<user>/ folder itself.20:47
lordcirth__kuwanger, ecryptfs leaves /home/<user/ empty. The cleartext files get mounted into it.20:48
lordcirth__The encrypted files are stored as /home/.ecryptfs, iirc20:48
kuwangerThat's what I thought, which is why I'm confused.  /home/.ecryptfs/home/.Private is there.20:48
lordcirth__kuwanger, try running ecryptfs-recover-private20:50
kuwangerlordcirth__: Just checked on another system and it looks like there's symlinks in /home/<user>/ to .ecryptfs and .Private20:51
kuwangerlordcirth__: And recreating those symlinks makes it work again.20:53
lordcirth__Interesting, what are the symlinks?20:54
kuwangerlordcirth__: ln -s /home/.ecryptfs/<user>/.ecryptfs /home/<user>/.ecryptfs; ln -s /home/.ecryptfs/<user>/.Private /home/<user>/.Private20:57
lordcirth__kuwanger, interesting, that must be how it knows where the ecryptfs data is.20:57
kuwangerlordcirth__: Yea.  Makes sense in retrospect, but it's hard to tell such things when you can't normally list said "empty" directory. :/21:00
peter22222anybody familiar with "crunch"?21:01
lordcirth__peter22222, don't ask polls, ask your real question21:03
peter22222is there a possibility to limit the number of upper case letters in the passwords generated by crunch? there s nothing explicitly said about that in the manual...21:04
peter22222like i know my password has 1 upper case letter, 3 lower case letters and 2-4 numbers in it21:05
lordcirth__peter22222, crunch doesn't seem to be specifically for password generation. I recommend using 'pwgen', I think it does what you want by default21:06
kuwangerNow to figure out why my user is listed many times in /etc/group but "groups" only lists me in one group. :/21:06
peter22222thank you.21:08
pi0any recommended suggestions to setup a dns server and sub domains21:17
kuwangerAnd it was because some the other files (maybe .Xauthority?) were in "empty" /home/<user>/ which was confusing the X login shell or something.21:18
kuwangerlordcirth__: Oh, there were also symlinks to ecryptfs-private-... something desktop and txt (as README.txt) which may or may not be important.21:18
kuwangerAnyways, thanks for the help (and me ranting). :)21:20
=== sam is now known as Guest75581
Guest75581Does Anyone Know how to search not a local repository but a potential repository to add from a web server so i can discover new repository's to add via he terminal21:33
ryahiGuest75581, you can add repository using command "sudo add-apt-repository"21:36
ryahiThen just run sudo apt update21:37
Guest75581:ryahi but how do i search for one to add21:37
Fieldytomreyn: (apologies if this is a repeat, i just tried again, same result) fyi I created a launchpad account and attempted to create a bug for the long password sudo issues. but launchpad itself seems to be having issues, saying it timed out etc (the site says this, not my browser). I will try again later21:38
Fieldythis is the error i see https://i.imgur.com/2cdPxGS.png21:40
ryahiGuest75581, you only add a repository if a software you want to use is not available in the ubuntu default repository.21:40
Guest75581:ryahi yes thats what i want to do add a repository thats not ubuntu a custom one not a package a repository with multiple packages to be displayed in gnome software21:42
ryahiFieldy, if you want to use a terminal as root, just type sudo -i in the terminal and then you won't have to type your password more than once21:42
evg1hi all, I m under disco. I wanted to install russian keyboard later, but I cant see it in the list. How to install russian keyboard with command?21:42
ryahiGuest75581, just search for installation instructions of your software in a browser. It will have mentioned the repository name or there must be a .deb file.21:43
Guest75581:ryahi is there a way to search for a repository in the terminal and not the browser21:44
Fieldyryahi: thanks! however this is regarding an issue i worked with him on, if a password of a user that can otherwise sudo is changed to a length greater than 255, sudo won't work. he asked me to file a bug, which i've tried twice with the error in the screenshot21:45
ryahiGuest75581, I don't think there is but I'm also kind of noob. So wait if anyone else knows the answer to that.21:48
ryahiFieldy, oh ok. Good luck.21:48
pavlosGuest75581: the ppa's you have installed are in sources.list, "grep ppa /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*" is this what you want or something else?21:49
Fieldytl;dr in the latest ubuntu server install, don't set / change your normal users password to something longer than 255 chars. you won't be able to sudo evar again. likely not a showstopper :P21:50
Fieldywell. during install or any time later really21:50
pavlosGuest75581: there is a y-ppa-manager that allows you to do plenty with ppa's. https://www.tecmint.com/y-ppa-manager-easily-add-remove-purge-ppas-in-ubuntu/21:51
evg1how to page up /down in weechat?21:51
Guest75581pavlos: at the momment i have only ubuntu repository such as debian security main etc.. i would like to search for custom repository like google security main21:51
Guest75581a ppa is a software package not a repository21:53
jeremy31Guest75581: post url from terminal for> cat /etc/apt/sources.list | nc termbin.com 999921:55
pavlosGuest75581: ppa is a personal package archive (a collection of packages)21:55
evg1what is the lightes client for irc?21:57
Guest75581pavlos: yes but with ubuntu repositories in the sources list it display's all that software in the gnome software im looking for a repository to display software in the software centre not just install a package21:58
evg1how to install keyboard languages?22:05

evg1ayekat: yes, I can't find them in the menus22:09
evg1I meant , only english layouts22:10

xut_u running a server at home?22:11
evg1I have selection : English US , Canada, Australia , Britain , and nothing else. (Add an imput source menu)22:13
ayekatevg1: if you scroll to the bottom, isn't there a ⋮ entry or something?22:14
ayekatevg1: ah yes, that would be the "Add an input source" menu, which should give further options22:14
ayekatno wait, I'm mixing things up - but ⋮ should give move options22:15
evg1nothing there, it looks like languages are absent22:15
evg1Maybe it's a beta bug, or I choosed minimul instalation?22:16
evg1I have lived well without russian keyboard this week ,but faced hot topic in twitter =)22:20

evg1not good keyboard, but other features are awesome for me.22:25
pavlosevg1: I'd have to spin a vm to find the russian keyboard ...22:25

tomreynardya: if i recall correctly, yes. i think there's also a workaround for it on the bug report.23:50

ardyagot a URL for that?23:51
