gbellinoz_Anybody a fan of Aptitude? I've used it for years, but 0.8.10 is giving me too much grief.00:09
tomreyn!aptitude | gbellinoz_00:12
ubottugbellinoz_: Like apt and apt-get, aptitude is a terminal frontend for Ubuntu's package management system. Unlike the others, it is not recommended in Ubuntu because its behavior differs significantly from other Ubuntu package management tools and can cause issues.00:12
gbellinoz_I've used it for 10 years... never a problem.00:12
gbellinoz_Until this latest version... only recommends additional installations to remedy conflicts, rather than removing more stuff, which is usually what I want to do.00:13
gbellinoz_What I like about it over apt and apt-get is the conflict resolution. Not sure how to do that as nicely with apt/apt-get.00:13
tomreynas the above note suggests, aptitude and other apt utilities have diverted a bit, to the point i owouldn't recommend using aptitude anymore. such as how held packages are handled.00:14
gbellinoz_Alright, I'll quit using it.00:14
tomreyneverything but aptitude does it one way, and then aptitude does it a different way, and doesn't understand how the rest does it,00:14
gbellinoz_Alright, abandoning it right... now.00:15
gbellinoz_So, interactive conflict resolution... best practices with apt/apt-get?00:15
tomreynnon-interactive ;)00:15
tomreynyou read what it outputs and act accordingly00:16
gbellinoz_alright. It just removed CUPS happily... sort of offering one resolution, which seemed OK to me.00:16
gbellinoz_aptitude USED TO BE great for this, offering several possible solutions.00:16
tomreyni used it, too, some 10 years ago00:17
gbellinoz_Unix used to be by and for dinosaurs :)00:17
gbellinoz_CHANGE. sigh :)00:18
sarnoldus dinosaurs still use it :)00:19
circuitboneTfknREX here00:19
sarnoldit's just nice to be able to have more than twenty open file descriptors per process00:19
gbellinoz_ok, everybody , remember the old days when you could set up networking via conf files in /etc? ;)00:20
gbellinoz_oh, and mount showed actual disks?00:20
gbellinoz_cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/rdma type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,rdma)00:20
gbellinoz_fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw,relatime)00:20
gbellinoz_Alight, complain mode off. 20 years of linux, and still love it.00:21
gbellinoz_Survival essentials for CUPS? I start twitching whenever I have to do an upgrade, because it's usually hours to get CUPS to work again. Still not completely working on 18.04. bonjour/samba/IPP, local CUPS daemon, cups client, driverless... I don't have a good feel for all the pieces, nor the minimalist approach to use.00:28
sarnoldgbellinoz_: heh, that's another one.. to get a printer to work on lp was usually just copy-paste the line from the previous computer. ONE LINE.00:32
sarnoldof course if you made the mistake of buying a non-postscript printer you were raked over the coals00:32
gbellinoz_Alright, the twitching just spread to my eyelid.00:32
gbellinoz_looks like adding a printer via gnome-control-panel just does it via the local cups server... and does it wrong somehow, creating both a local "raw printer" and a remote, neither destination works...00:36
TheteI'm assuming the do-release-update mechanism is broken ATM?01:09
Casper26is there a way to install iptables 1.6.1 or 1.6.2 on 16.04?01:16

Thetenot wanting to run nightlies01:28
sarnoldyeah, but there's no focal listed in https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/meta-release-development so eoan would be selected01:29
tomreynThete: which upgrade are you trying to do?01:29
Thete19.04 -> 19.1001:29
tomreynand do-release-upgrade does not offer it?01:29
tomreynif you run    do-release-upgrade -c    what does it say?01:29
Theteneither does GUI even though pop-up keeps popping up to upgrade01:29
Thetelemme check 1 sec01:29
Thetesays "New release '19.10' available."01:31
Thetebut when I do do-release-upgrade, it says "Please install all available updates for your release before upgrading".   Everything is up to date01:32
TheteI'm guessing the updater package hasn't been pushed yet?01:32
=== zbenjamin_ is now known as zbenjamin
Theteall of my computers are doing this01:32
tomreynThete: hmm so     sudo apt update    doesn't list any warnings or errors and     sudo apt full-upgrade     doesn't want to do anything, and lists several 0s on the bottom?01:34
tomreyni.e. it shuodld say exactly "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded."01:34

zaapielhow do i check what soundcard i have?01:36
sarnoldzaapiel: lshw -c sound01:37
tomreynThete, gmm, i'm not sure then. maybe try this: when you install    apt-forktracer    and run it, does it output anything?01:38
Theteno, nothing01:39
tomreynThete: can you post this?    sudo /bin/true && cat &>/tmp/aptlog < <(sudo apt-get -y update 2>&1; apt-cache policy 2>&1; sudo apt-get -syV full-upgrade 2>&1;); nc termbin.com 9999 </tmp/aptlog && rm /tmp/aptlog01:40
tomreynsarnold: any other ideas? i guess i'm overdebugging and you already provided an answer01:41
tomreyn(or a sufficiently good workaround)01:42
sarnoldtomreyn: hmm I thought the "install all available updates" thing was a blocker at this point01:42
sarnoldtomreyn: and without sorting out where that's coming from I'm not sure what next step could keep going01:42
tomreynas in, a bug?01:42
sarnoldit sure oculd be, I wanted to see the pastebin :)01:42
tomreynhmm yes this might be good to see.01:43
sarnoldtomreyn: I'm about to head out for the night.. maybe busted proxy? busted firewall? without an error message from something I'm pretty thin on ideas01:45
tomreynyes, good thinking there01:46
Thetetomreyn: different machine that I'm on with irc but having same issue http://termbin.com/6yk201:46
tomreynsarnold: ttyl01:46
tomreynThete: that's a fancy mix of apt sources01:47
sarnoldyeah that's kind of all over the place, but I'd still hope for a concrete error message of some sort ;(01:48
tomreyn<Thete> no custom repos, no ppa's etc01:49
tomreynyou said this earlier, does it apply to the other computers then?01:49
tomreynsince it doesn#t apply to this one01:49
tomreynThete: check also that the output of "date" makes sense01:55
Theteeither way, the problem persists on all of them01:57
TheteI'm going to assume, the updater package hasn't been pushed yet01:57

DirtyEarHi. I am using Ubuntu and I have a slave hard disk with my projects and files, but when I try to open files from that disk, I cannot save changes until I copy the file to the hard disk where I have installed Ubuntu. I want to know how can I change permission or something that allow me to work with files in my slave hard disk. Any advice you can02:18
DirtyEarshare with me?02:18
AndikaSagalahey.. Saint Vincent College really good... i found something good in their scientific article.02:24
Bashing-omDirtyEar: What is the file system on that slave hard disk ?02:28
DirtyEarBashing-om: Thanks. I am not shure, but I think is NTFS02:29
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Best to know what shows ' sudo parted -l '? IF NTFS then one approach: http://askubuntu.com/questions/113733/how-do-i-correctly-mount-a-ntfs-partition-in-etc-fstab .02:34
DirtyEarBashing-om: Thanks. I just write this on my terminal and I think it works: sudo mount -o remount,uid=raices,gid=raices,rw /dev/sdb202:35
DirtyEarNow I see the icons without the padlock02:36
DirtyEarBut I am not shure if I have to do it every time I restart my pc02:36
Bashing-omDirtyEar: I have never seen the ownership options as such - but I am notWindows Literate- : generally see something like "defaults,auto,uid=1000,gid=1000,".02:37
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Is it your goal to only mount the data drive on demand from the terminal?02:40
DirtyEarBashing-om: I think I really need your help. I want to work with files in my secondary disck, but everytime I try to open some file it says "not allowed" and when it opens I cannot save changes02:41
DirtyEarThis is what I get from terminal https://pastebin.com/enpSC5tk02:41
DirtyEarBashing-om:  Is it your goal to only mount the data drive on demand from the terminal? - I want to used everytime in order to save all my fwork there and the ubuntu live in my principal hard disk02:43
DirtyEarDirtyEar: The disk I want to use is it the named "DirtyEar"02:43
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Tge question remians: mount on demand OR auto mount when booted ?02:48
DirtyEarBashing-om: Auto mount sound really good02:49
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Then one uses the /etc/fstab to automount. Follow the link given above :)02:50
DirtyEarBashing-om: This one https://askubuntu.com/questions/113733/how-do-i-correctly-mount-a-ntfs-partition-in-etc-fstab, right?02:51
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Yes - that will get you sorted.02:51
gbellinoz_Do the apt* tools manipulate the dpkg database? So dpkg is lowest level, apt* are more use-facing, and handle downloads?03:03
bomexgbellinoz_, yes03:04
gbellinoz_cool, thanks bomex. I've used them both for years, just have never understood their relationship to each other.03:05
bomexgbellinoz_, dpkg is like a father and apt* are there children03:07

Bashing-omDirtyEar: Looking,03:12
gbellinoz_bomex: are PR's how it's done for Ubuntu packages? I'd be asking these folks:03:13
gbellinoz_apt-cache show python-apt | egrep -i 'Maintainer:|Bugs'03:13

DirtyEarI am looking for something to use my secundary hard disk with permissions to write. Is there any advice. I have trying for some hours and I cannot fixed that04:05
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Again - do you have administrative rights ? pastebin ' groups ; getent passwd $USER' Then we see what the file systems are on the data drive, and set the mount in /etc/fstab.04:08
DirtyEarBashing-om: Thanks I really appreciate what you do. I get this https://pastebin.com/tBFYhqtL04:10

Bashing-omDirtyEar: Abd the target to mount is /dev/sdb2, Datos básicos de Microsoft - Yes ?04:20
DirtyEarYes, the disk is /dev/sbd2. Only contains files to work.04:22
DirtyEarI mean, my computer comes with Windows 10 and I installed Ubuntu in the same disk (disk 500 gb 250 to windos 250 to ubuntu)04:23
Bashing-omDirtyEar: And now we need to define a mount point in order to mount sdb2. I prefer that to be in /mnt - OK ?04:24
DirtyEarAnd the 1Tb disk only contains projects and files from my work.04:24
DirtyEarBashing-om: Yes it is right04:25
DirtyEarThe directory already exists04:25
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Good then we mount from /mnt. Pastebin ' ls -al /mnt ' so we know what mount points are presently established, so as to not to overwrite a mountpoint.04:27
DirtyEarI got this: https://pastebin.com/dRVCB75b04:30
DirtyEarBashing-om: I got this: https://pastebin.com/dRVCB75b04:30
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Good, nothing to overwrite :) ... Make the mount point ' sudo mkdir /mnt/windows '. then we make sure next a certain package is installed, find the UUID of sdb2, and edit /etc/fstab ( after making a backup!).04:33
DirtyEarBashing-om: I got this: https://pastebin.com/79YFLyGc04:35
DirtyEarBashing-om: How can I know the UUID of sdb2?04:35
Bashing-omDirtyEar: Good - pastebin ' dpkg -l ntfs-3g ' . As we want to use that package, we make sure it is installed.04:37
Bashing-omDirtyEar: we get to the UUID next :)04:38

glitchdits picking up wifi intermittently, like it was working and showing networks 2 days ago, but yesterday it wasnt, then again today it is.08:13
glitchdalso, i dont get wifi in windows, if that helps at all.08:15
roryok so it's not a weird kernel bug, there really is wifi hardware somewhere that's actually working08:16
roryjust in case, can you share lspci -v08:16
glitchdrory, i already did, but here is is again this time using sudo for all the extra info.   https://pastebin.com/0Mq5vFWD08:21

isomarigreetings, how can I make do-release-upgrade answer all questions with the deafult answer? I left my system to upgrade last night only to coe back this morning with it not complete but waiting for me to answer a question.08:28
roryisomari: The following command upgrades to the new stable release without prompts: do-release-upgrade -f DistUpgradeViewNonInteractive08:29
roryisomari: This sort of thing is called "unattended" installation/upgrade, that's the word for future googling08:29
isomariI know. I just didn't know how to do it for this installation.08:30
glitchdrory, any clues or ideas?08:30
roryThis is a mystery tbh08:42
roryI found this very verbose "lshw" command though08:42
roryit shows my laptop batteries, so it might show your mystery device08:42
isomarisome of the posts I have read online claim that do-release-upgrade -f DistUpgradeViewNonInteractive does not work properly. Some even say it messed up their installation. Is this true?08:44
groksisomari: it's all possible, especially if you have custom config changes.08:44
roryblindly accepting the default setting is always going to have its dangers, it's the nature of the beast if you have a very custom system08:45
groksthat when the release upgrade goes, some default configs could possibly be upgraded or missing values needed08:45
isomariunderstood. thanks08:45
roryif you had custom boot loader settings or something, you could potentially overwrite those during do-release-upgrade08:45
rorythat would be the most annoying thing to deal with. other stuff probably less important08:46
isomarii'll just make sure I'm around. thanks.08:46
glitchdrory, heres lshw  https://pastebin.com/Cwe47C6L08:47
groks       logical name: wlp9s0f3u308:47
groksjeeze that's a wifi name if i've ever seen one08:48
glitchdgroks, lol right?!08:48
rorywell it's definitely USB08:48
groksglitchd: you have the model of the wifi module you bought?08:49
grokspossible that the m2. wifi port is using that usb chipset08:49
roryis it possible you have a very small wifi adaptor plugged into a USB port and forgot?08:49
roryi've made stupider mistakes08:49
groksrory: I forgot i had something similar happened and had a hub behind my PC.08:50
isomaritracker is like the walking dead. except even shooting it in the head doesn't stop it. How on earth can I kill that damn beast?08:50
groksTook me >1day to figure that was still plugged in08:50
glitchdrory, the only usb type things that i have plugged in are a nano usb dongle for my mouse/keyboard and a wireless controller receiver.08:50
glitchdrory, no, i just checked again.08:50
glitchdgroks, i did buy any wifi adapters or equipment. i shouldnt have wifi.08:51
isomarinothing I tried in google works. I even deleted the binaries but they respawn on their own.08:51
groksah then you dont08:51
groksthat wireless adapter is for your remote08:51
glitchdgroks, yea, i know lol08:51
grokscrazy that it shows up as a wifi-adapter08:52
glitchdgroks, but then why is it displaying the wifi networks around me?08:52
groksbut you can set it to link-local08:52
groksyour desktop is?08:52
groksquick check for you08:52
glitchdgroks, yes, the computer im on right now08:52
groksiwlist wlp9s0f3u3 scan08:52
groksyou can install that utility and nuke it later08:53
glitchdgroks, yes that command listed all the nearby wifi networks08:53
groksor iw dev wlp9s0f3u3 scan08:53
groksso that mediatek is indeed a wifi module as well as your remote dongle.08:53
glitchdgroks, ok im gonna unplug it and see if wifi goes away then08:54
groksit should08:54
groksfunny part is the different models of it support the wireless xbox controller08:54
grokshttps://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/MT76x2U.html listed here08:54
glitchdgroks, lmao it did. i swear the last time i tried that, the networks still showed08:54
groksprobably cached until NM refreshed08:55
glitchdgroks, thats what it is. its an xbox one wireless controller receiver.08:55
groksso problem solved, yeehaw08:55
groksah, haha08:55
groksdigging for docs is a pita08:55
groksespecially when it comes to drivers08:55
glitchdno doubt08:55
glitchdthis thing just worked out of the box08:56
glitchdan added bonus is that i dont need to buy a wifi dongle now lol08:56

slavanapHello! Is that possible to run linux app under Wine? I'm curious of git.exe integration with other apps, but Cygwin's git.exe doesn't work under wine08:57
roryomg I even saw xbox in the search results and didn't put 2 and 2 together :) Nice one folks08:57
groksrory: haha08:57
groksslavanap: don't know and havent tried, but I figure there are some libraries required that aren't included in wine for git.exe to work08:58
glitchdrory groks, i had my suspicions but i wasnt certain08:58
glitchdbut like i said, i swear that last time i was trying to figure this out, i unplugged that adapter and the wifi stayed. no matter, thx guys. much appreciated.08:59
groksslavanap: some of those wifi modules aren't capable of going into promiscuous mode (e.g. the tools you're trying to run won't work)09:00
groksyou'll want an intel or atheros based card for that kind of stuff.09:00
groksand not promoting wifi hacking around here.09:00
slavanapgroks, maybe someone here knows wine support channel, because my git.exe for portable git I've download from git-scm.com just crashes all the time09:01
groksslavanap: bah meant to type boktan for the wifi thing haha09:01
groks2am brain is retiring09:01
groksslavanap: whats the error when it crashes?09:02
boktangroks was the message about capable to me?09:02
slavanapSome internal exception. Will take a screenshot.09:02
groksboktan: correct09:02
groksslavanap: just run it from cli and pastebin09:02
boktanmy external wifi was working perfect on kali linux i dont think it haves a problem but i think ubuntu have some problems because of the driver from repo works NOTHİNG even the light is not blinking then i install it from github it is now part of working09:03
groksboktan: ah, what kernel version is kali on?09:04
groksmight be a kernel issue with that particular driver and the default ubuntu one09:04
roryboktan: might be the driver is available in the Drivers tool in Ubuntu, and not installed by default due to licensing or space requirements? Whereas Kali pretty much doesn't care about that stuff, and will bundle everything in their massive iso09:05
groksrory: yeah was my thoughts as well09:05
grokskali is like "Lets pile all this on here and call it a day"09:05
roryit's designed to be run as a live environment so it needs all the things09:06

slavanapgroks,  https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Hxb35Z3NFc/09:08
boktangroks one guy suggest me to do this: https://github.com/v1s1t0r1sh3r3/airgeddon/wiki/Consistent%20Network%20Device%20Naming09:08
boktanthis wifi name problem i have too mentioned on that link09:08
groksboktan: just read something09:09
grokssudo apt remove realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms; sudo apt autoremove; sudo apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms; unplug the wifi module, and then plug it back in, verify09:10
boktanthis topic i read and tryed already i know from where you see it :D  groks09:11
boktanand realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms not have in ubuntu repo09:11
boktanrtl88xxau-dkms have09:11
groksthat should be fine09:11
boktanyeah and i tryed it already09:11
boktanafter i did fresh install09:12
groksand nothing, does dmesg even detect it being plugged in?09:12
boktanyes  :D09:12
boktanthat driver on ubuntu repo not working09:12
boktanIf you see your wireless card named as wlx00c0ca9208dc or any similar name, yeah you are affected and probably you'll have some issues using airgeddon while changing mode of your card.09:13
boktanit says on airgeddon link09:13
boktanand exactly this i have now :/09:14
MudchainsI am running a fresh install of ubuntu 18.04 LTS (server) with xrdp & ubuntu-mate. When in RDP I want to logoff, i get kicked back to the session after ~30 sec. Anyone has experience with it ?09:14
jeremy31boktan: in terminal>   sudo ln -s /dev/null /etc/systemd/network/99-default.link09:15

boktani did GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0" now my wlan names are normal :D09:19
slavanapOne more question from me: what's the simplest way to build and install custom kernel in Ubuntu. I need this commit https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=12e36d98d3e5acf5fc57774e0a15906d55f30cb909:22
slavanapIf it's possible to rebuild just iwlwifi module, that'd be great09:22
jeremy31slavanap: Building only the iwlwifi/iwlmvm modules is possible09:23
groksjeremy31: yeah was just gonna say that09:23
jeremy31slavanap: download kernel source code, apply patch and build modules09:24
slavanap`dpkg -S /usr/lib/modules/5.3.0-19-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/iwlwifi.ko`    does not show the owner of module binary...09:25
jeremy31slavanap: You might want to check iwlwifi-backports and see if the commit is there09:28
slavanapjeremy31, my furute isn't that bright: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/YV2VnTqJQz/09:32
jeremy31slavanap: That one is too old to have the commit and it might not support the 5.3 kernels yet09:34
slavanapwhich backport you suggest then?09:34
jeremy31slavanap: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/iwlwifi/backport-iwlwifi.git/log/?h=release%2Fcore47  but even it doesn't have that commit yet09:35
slavanapOk. It seems building it myself in the only option09:35
slavanapI hope this doc is up-to-date https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel09:37
slavanapapt-get source linux-image-$(uname -r)   does not seem to download the whole source code though09:38
jeremy31slavanap: apt-get source linux-modules-extra-$(uname -r)09:39
slavanapjeremy31, thanks a bunch!09:39
hans_i think i found a bug in the /etc/sudoers.d/* parser on 18.0409:40
rorygo on09:42
hans_if /etc/sudoers.d/www-data-jailexecutor  contains the exact string "www-data ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/php /jail/jailexecutor.php" without ending with a space or a newline, you will get the error > >>> /etc/sudoers.d/www-data-jailexecutor: syntax error near line 1 <<< sudo: parse error in /etc/sudoers.d/www-data-jailexecutor near line 1 sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting sudo: unable to initialize policy plugin09:43
jeremy31slavanap: It is easier than the wiki link as you just need to compile iwlwifi09:43
hans_but if you add a space or a newline to the end, it's parsed without complaining09:43
hans_.. are those files required to end with a space or a newline? i didn't think that was a requirement09:44
hans_(unless it's a parser bug, perhaps?)09:44
mgedminhans_: non-empty text files are supposed to end with a newline character in unix; many programs (like cron) are unhappy if they don't09:44
mgedminapparently sudo is one of them09:45
hans_well quickly skimming `man sudo`, it doesn't appear to be documented :o  - https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste/93IDgvBeCWyen-upDS5rtQ/raw?password=TSjSjv5SVnLFHjaxiJ09:46
mgedminyeah, I see no explicit mention of this in man sudoers either09:47

neowebsomeone here tell me if it is possible to mount /somedir with a snap.12:35
lotuspsychjeneoweb: mgedmin already explained you the security part12:36
neowebsomeone explained to me it, but no one confirmed if the security policy was still to jailbreak to some crazy user, and some crazy dir.12:36
tomreynfunabashi: sources.list works on xenial the same way it works on other ubuntu releases, just the release codename needs to be "xenial" in those lines.12:37
tomreynyou will need to have the GPG keys available to apt-key12:37
funabashitomreyn: how to do this with keys never done that12:39
tomreynfunabashi: your "apt-key" is missing the gpg signing keys used for the http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu apt archive. normally, the sytem would already have them present so seomoene must have explicitly removed (or initially failed to install) them.12:40
funabashitomreyn: ok but can u please tell me how do it? please12:40
tomreynthe apt-secure(8) man page explains how this works12:40

jsphillips86a 1050 I believe. It's a laptop, so built into the motherboard12:58

lotuspsychjejsphillips86: hmm, its not disabled by bios or something? are you on uefi or legacy?12:59

tomreyndid it previously work?12:59
tomreynor was it broken since you got your hands on it?13:00
jsphillips86yeah, I used it a couple days ago with a cheap vr headset in windows. THinking maybe it backfed power incorrectly, but I did hear a pop while plugging the ac adapter in13:01
jsphillips86So i'm not sure if it was the headset or the ac adapter.13:01

jsphillips86It is on it's third mobo, so I think it's a junk model13:01
tomreynsounds like a realistic scenario to me, but u'd also wanted to inspect the system log ( journalctl -b | nc termbin.com 9999 ) or at least dmesg to ensure.13:02

jsphillips86I did have to reset the ram because of a beep code. Would faulty ram mess up the nvidia part. (not sure if it's shared ram)13:06

jsphillips86no wayland13:11
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: ok, tnx for checking13:13
tomreynjsphillips86: so you can run a memory test. there's memtest86 in ubuntu (which you can select from grub if you're booting in bios mode). i personally prefer the free edition from https://www.memtest86.com/download.htm which also supports uefi.13:14
jsphillips86I did do the built-in dell diagnostics, and they reported no error, but I'm sure memtest is better13:15

jsphillips86tomreyn, wow13:17
AESthetic256lotuspsychje, thank you :]13:17
lotuspsychjeAESthetic256: are you on canonical advantage?13:17
AESthetic256lotuspsychje, I don't believe so13:17
jsphillips86I wouldn't doubt that the ram is bad, but there is no point replacing it if that doesn't fix the nvidia problem. I don't have any other compatable sticks laying around13:18
jsphillips86If I can't get graphics, the laptop is useless to me.13:18
tomreynjsphillips86: i see you have 8 GB RAM, the memtest may be a bit faster then. but it'll still take many hours.13:19
tomreynjsphillips86: right, there is no indication of any nvidia hardware on this log.13:19
jsphillips86maybe it'll heat up enough to help the graphics. lol.13:19
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: another idea crossing mind, is to compare on a liveusb ubuntu, if nvidia doesnt work either, we could state its hardware?13:19
tomreynjsphillips86: secureboot is enabled, have you booted without for testing?13:20
jsphillips86yeah, that makes sense.13:20
jsphillips86tomreyn, yes13:20
tomreynah no, not actually enabled13:20
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: was it working before you upgraded your bios?13:20
lotuspsychjelets hope you didnt brick something13:20
jsphillips86I think the update was actually the same version number, but I let it run away13:21
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: can you share the version with tomreyn you updated?13:21
tomreynInspiron 15 7000 Gaming/, BIOS 1.10.0 05/17/2019 is what you have now13:21
jsphillips86yeah, it was the same version number. guess it wasn't actually an "update"13:21
jsphillips86more like a cross date13:21
tomreynpatched bios?13:23
jsphillips86no. dell bios. Just did the "update" as part of the diagnostics13:24
tomreynwell, you're on the latest released bios version.13:24
jsphillips86yeah. was before the problem too.13:24
tomreynbut if a bios upgrade would stop the graphics card from working they'd likely notice and remedy that soon13:25
jsphillips86and it's over 2 months old.13:25
jsphillips86I'm guessing it was either the headset or the ac adapter popping. But I can memtest to check that. Guess I can replace the ram and donate the computer. Without discrete graphics, it's useless for me13:27
tomreynmobile computers and potent graphics cards don't go well together, and probably won't anytime soon13:28
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: intel graphics can do some work too these days13:28
jsphillips86Nope, it's replacement will be one I build myself13:29
jsphillips86lotuspsychje, Guess if I can get it to run Doom, lol. That's my most intense game13:29
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: 2 months old = warranty?13:29
jsphillips86lotuspsychje, I meant the bios update. My warranty ended a month ago. Go figure13:30
tomreynwell designed hardware!13:30
tomreyni mean, according to vendor needs13:30
* tomreyn bbl13:30
jsphillips86I  could pay for more warranty and then replace it, but that seems dishonest13:30
jsphillips86and would stil be nearly $10013:31
lotuspsychjejsphillips86: lets focus on ubuntu again now, getting bit out of scope13:32
jsphillips86lotuspsychje, True. Sorry about all that.13:32
jsphillips86Thanks for the help everyone13:32

jrgilmanhey guys, is there an alternative to pulseaudio that is more "stable?" I keep having crackling/high pitched problems happening consistently, when i do pulseaudio -k it fixes it, but then i have to restart anyways because half of my applications no longer pick up my microphone or sound output16:25
mgedminI think pipewire is meant to replace pulseaudio, but I'm not sure if it's already packaged/integrated in ubuntu16:26
uRockAnd I have my GUI on the laptop again.16:26
mgedminjrgilman: have you tried filing bugs?16:27
oerhekscrackling sound often comes from too high input, or bad cables, next to some unshielded devices16:27
mgedminIIRC crackling when sounds stops/starts can be fixed by asking pulseaudio to play a loop of silence instead of turning off the output16:27
lotuspsychjejrgilman: also handy to know, would be your ubuntu version/kernel clean installed or upgraded from..16:27
mgedmincrackling during soundback would be a different thing ofc16:27

oerhekssome dvd's will never play, try another one?16:29
jrgilmanmgedmin: yeah basically I would have no problems, and then suddenly it will decide to make the sound sound like it's coming from an original gameboy or something16:30
jrgilmanlooking through journalctl now though16:30
oerheksnetwork cable clutter with soundcable16:31
jrgilmanoerheks: wouldn't that cause a consistent problem16:32
jrgilmanalso the sound cable is nowhere near the networking16:32
jrgilmanalso doing pulseaudio -k and it immediately fixing it seems like it's not a hardware issue16:32
mgedminthat does sound like a software or driver problem16:32
SoulofTruth7oerheks: I tried another DVD and it worked16:33
mgedminanything even vaguely sound-related near the end of journalctl -e output right after the problem happens could be helpful16:33
jrgilmanmgedmin: unfortunately it happened while the computer was asleep so i'm trying to find this now16:34
jrgilmanor at least it happened while i was AFK16:34
oerheksSoulofTruth7, yay!16:34
jrgilmani wonder if there is a way to induce the problem16:34
jrgilmanthat's weird...16:35
SoulofTruth7oerheks: So why is it that some DVDs will work in Ubuntu, and some won't?16:35
jrgilmandoing pavucontrol > Configuration and then switching the Profile back and forth on the dock output fixes it16:36
mgedminSoulofTruth7: AFAIU different discs use different encryption keys; some have been cracked, some haven't16:36
tomreynSoulofTruth7: install regionset and use it16:38
mgedminonly careful: DVD drive firmware is usually limited to something like 5 region changes per lifetime16:39
oerheksSome use a protection mechanism, to prevent things like this, but that would be 5%. nowadays it is too expensive to use such license16:40

pgpfoxtomreyn yeah well everything i do on popOS i follow ubuntu guides and it works..18:07
pgpfoxand now i kinda really need help fast so18:07
tomreynpgpfox: then you should turn fast to the support channel of your OS18:07

smithsr93recently downloaded 19.10 under vmware and long boot vs prior versions of 18.04.3 and 19.04 which have no issues at startup18:10
smithsr93getting error "gkr-pam: unable to locate daemon control file"18:10
smithsr93how to fix?18:10
tomreynsmithsr93: is this default ubuntu, or a flavor?18:12
slingamn_i'm using the latest BIOS --- i had 19.04 on this system right before this upgrade18:13
slingamn_was trying to do a clean install :-|18:14
smithsr93also get security issue: "Failed to start GNOME Shell on Wayland."18:14
tomreynsmithsr93: this is not a security issue. also it does not seem like there is anything involving gkr-pam on 19.10, at least not in ubuntu, unless the file search at https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=eoan&arch=any&mode=exactfilename&searchon=contents&keywords=gkr-pam failed me18:16
tomreynsmithsr93: what does     dpkg -S gkr-pam | nc termbin.com 9999    return?18:16
slingamn_if i can't get this to work i would consider going through the 19.04 installer again and then doing an in-place upgrade to 19.1018:16
sarnoldtomreyn: hopefully useful http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/7CxxHSDP78/18:16
tomreynsarnold: thanks, i wonder what's broken with packages.u.c. this time :/18:17
popeycorelooks like a gnome keyring issue?18:18
popeycoresmithsr93: what flavour of Ubuntu is this? Stock Ubuntu GNOME ?18:19
smithsr93tomreyn: "dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *gkr-pam*"18:19
sarnoldtomreyn: hmm there's a chance I haven't run the 'unpack sources' step in a while, so that pattern not existing in newer versions may not mean anything beyond 'sarnold should really schedule the unpacking step too'18:19
slingamn_heh, i have no idea what happened, but i successfully installed 19.10 server18:19
smithsr93popeycore: default18:19
slingamn_i booted from live media at one point and used efibootmgr to delete the old boot entry for the previous install18:20
slingamn_maybe that fixed it or maybe it was something else18:20
sarnoldtomreyn: (sigh, to be clear, that's for my pastebin, I don't know much about the packages.ubuntu.com site)18:20
slingamn_oh, i ended up with a non-EFI install somehow :-\18:20
popeycoresmithsr93: looks like its related to bug 181712818:21
ubottubug 1817128 in gnome-keyring (Ubuntu) "gnome-keyring not automatically unlocked on login" [High,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/181712818:21
smithsr93popeycore: reading bug now  thanks ubottu18:22
slingamn_btw what's the difference between the 'live' and non-live server images?18:25
popeycorethe installer software used18:25
popeycorelive uses a newer technology and  has a live environment for debugging and fixing18:25
popeycorethe non-live uses the traditional curses based "debian installer"18:25

kadiroHi there, I have a same situation as in this link https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/442698/when-i-log-in-it-hangs-until-crng-init-done I have installed that haveged thing without a success, the issue in that link is old from kernel 4.15 and mine is the latest 5.0.0-32 and still the devs didn't fix that random thing18:28
oerhekskadiro, debian kernel issue?18:28
oerhekswith lightdm, not gdm3?18:29
kadirooerheks> It sound like that but i'm in xubuntu 18.0418:29

EriC^^kadiro: did you try sudo apt-get install rng-tools18:30
tomreynsmithsr93: in case you can't solve it, please provide csome more context around the error message: where do you see it, which other messages are logged next to it, what fails or misbehaves (how) as a result of it?18:30
kadiroEriC^^> no i installed the other called haveged18:30
EriC^^kadiro: give rng-tools a go, maybe it helps18:30
kadiroEriC^^> ok i will try it18:30
kadiroEriC^^> do I need to remove haveged first or it is ok18:31
EriC^^kadiro: not sure18:32
kadirook rng installed let me try with and without haveged18:33
smithsr93tomreyn: I have not been able to solve it.  Issue is at startup, screen is black for about 30 seconds then starts18:34
smithsr93shows up in log file I am looking at logfiles now18:34
tomreynsmithsr93:     systemd-analyze critical-chain    may hint on what took so long.    systemd-analyze blame    can also be of use there.18:35
tomreynit depends on when the 'wait' / 'freeze' occurs, though, if it's in the early boot those commands wont show it18:36

kadiroEriC^^> you mean removing the file itself?18:56
EriC^^kadiro: no, i mean making it empty, sorry18:56
tomreynsmithsr93: great, so those actually claim that you reach the graphical login in less than 10 seconds. which makes me thin the issue must be before the data starts getting collected, which means you may need to look at the early boot process.18:57
tomreynsmithsr93: To get a verbose log of the boot process, add the kernel parameters "debug systemd.log_level=info" and remove "quiet splash". See !kernelparm on how to edit those.18:57
tomreyn!kernelparm | smithsr9318:58

smithsr93tomreyn and ubottu: looking at wiki now18:59
kadiroI guess i must reinstall lightdm itself19:03
EriC^^kadiro: do you recall when the issue started?19:04
kadiroEriC^^> when the boot message finish I see the tty1 show up and taking about 1 minute or 2 for the lightdm to show up19:05
kadirothe LED for the harddisk indicate there are things loading up but no idea what is going on19:06
EriC^^kadiro: i see, when did it start doing this?19:06
kadiroEriC^^> not sure may be from the kernel 519:07
EriC^^kadiro: maybe the lightdm logs can show some info, try "sudo cat /var/log/lightdm/*.log | nc termbin.com 9999"19:08
kadiroEriC^^> https://termbin.com/4u5j19:09
EriC^^kadiro: also these commands might give some insight to some hanging service "nc termbin.com 9999 <(systemd-analyze critical-chain; systemd-analyze blame)"19:10
kadiroEriC^^> no resulted link from the last command it hang19:12
tomreynsmithsr93: so the "gkr-pam: unable to locate daemon control file" message is actually printed by gdm-password, and it seems to be benign or at least not in any way related to the slow boot issue you're reporting. i see the same message on my 19.10 VM.19:15

denza242how easy is it to move a partition over to another drive? What i'd like to do in my new laptop, is get a new ssd, and transfer my linux partition onto it, as currently, i have both my windows partition and linux partition on the same ssd19:49
denza242the end goal is that windows is on one drive, while kubuntu is on the other19:50
EriC^^slingamn_: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1030491/ubuntu-18-04-lts-server-full-disk-encryption19:50
EriC^^denza242: it's not really difficult or complicated, you'd need to create a new partition table on the ssd, same type as you currently have, then a partition that uses all the space, copy the new partition into it, then resize the filesystem so it uses the whole space (assuming the ssd is bigger than your current ubuntu partition) then you'd need to chroot into the install and reinstall grub from a live usb, or your current ubuntu19:52
EriC^^denza242: what does your current setup look like? might show some info "sudo parted -ls | nc termbin.com 9999" , paste the link here19:53
denza242ah not on that machine atm19:53
denza242basically just a win10 partition followed by an ubuntu partition on a 512 gb ssd19:54
EriC^^is it using uefi?19:54
denza242i think so19:55
denza242but i think in legacy boot mode19:55
EriC^^denza242: you mean the bios has uefi but you're using legacy boot?19:56

bpromptkadiro:  nope, still in development and support, better icons and GUI than LXDE, uses the QT libs21:14
bpromptand kubuntu comes packaged with QT21:14
kadirobprompt> I'm using xubuntu, can i just install kde-desktop and then try the lxqt ?21:15
bpromptkadiro:   could, but sounds a bit overkill, you might just be better off installing Kubuntu and then LXQT21:16
kadirobprompt> hmm that's will wipe out my data as I'm out of space21:17
kadiroanother problem to get some apps configured right as i always get problem to make them works21:18
bpromptkadiro:  you can always backup your $HOME directory, that's where all the data is at, and put it back after the installation, most apps configurations are under $HOME/.config or $HOME/.local, a few however use $HOME for their configuration21:18
kadirobprompt> yeah that ok but the other apps have other places as /usr /var ...etc plus the services ( i always change the inside of them with some luck to get them working again )21:20
bpromptkadiro:   install kubuntu, install your apps, put the configuration back, or put the configuration first and then the apps, the apps pick up any configuration changes, but I usually install first and then put the configurations, to avoid any overrides21:20
kadirobprompt> the problem i don't remember were thoses config /:21:22
bpromptkadiro:   the ones in /usr or /var? well, you can always check, the ones in $HOME, you don't have to, just grab the whole folder21:22
bpromptI install some apps manually under /usr/apps , but is the only spot I use, so I can always back that up21:23
kadirook may be when i got some space i will try your idea, thanks bprompt21:24
bpromptkadiro:   I've transferred my configurations using $HOME backups for a long while now, since 9.04 IIRC, maybe even before, I used to run 7.04 as well21:25

sleeping82Hi Folks! I want to install Ubuntu on my AMD. But my mainboard is "Windows only" and doesn't boot from my properly made Stick. It is possible to put the files for installation on an external HDD...did it before...years ago with Ubuntu 16. But I forgot how to manage that ^^22:54
tomreynsleeping82: you can dd the installer to a hdd instead of to flash storage, should make no difference. is this an old mainboard then?22:56
tomreynbooting the installer from internal storage (compared to usb connected storage) most likely makes a difference for the mainboard firmware, though, that's right.22:57
sleeping82current mb is a X370 :)  I am currently backupping...want to format the external hdd...broken Ubuntu 16 is still on it...23:00
tomreynoh so a 1st gen zen board. and this has difficulties booting ubuntu from usb? i'm surprised.23:05
tomreynon the other hand, in case you're trying to install ubuntu 16.04 LTS there, i'd understand it.23:07
sleeping82won't boot from the Stick I made for 19.10 with rufus...but would boot from the external HDD which is also USB. The Stick doesn't even show up in BIOS :)23:10
tomreynand the bios is current?23:10
doug16kwhat is Super+P doing? it makes my monitors backwards. I looked at the keybinds in system settings, super+P isn't there23:11
doug16kbackwards = mouse goes off the right of right screen onto left of left screen23:12
doug16k"projector" or something? how do I turn that off?23:12
bluejaypophello, what is the correct way to get the dns /etc/systemd/resolved.conf  (section [Resolve] DNS=XXXX) in the NetworkManager.conf dns= option? is it default or systemd-resolved  ?23:13
doug16kthe display settings still had my screens correctly laid out. had to make a change and change it back to get it to normal23:13
bluejaypopi figured out, dns=systemd-resolved23:16
gbellinoz_update-manager brings up dialogues that confuse my users. I handle updates in the background. But I can't apt remove it because ubuntu-desktop depends on it... suggestions?23:17
sarnoldgbellinoz_: if you can't find better ways to disable the dialog boxes, the equivs package would help you construct a fake package to satisfy the dependency23:18
sleeping82...Bios is current...hmmmm once my backup is complete I try something "msi specific"...thx tomreyn23:18
gbellinoz_interesting lead, thanks sarnold23:19
tomreyngbellinoz_: update-manager != update-manager-common. i think the latter creates the popoups but can be removed (or was it the other way around? something like this.)23:20
gbellinoz_Hmm... So I have my fake/equiv update-notifier installed, but the files from the real update-notifier are still all over my filesystem since I can't apt remove it...23:27
thePiGrepperhi, quick question. I just installed ubuntu and eclipse-cdt, however it doesnt load, and gives an error. everything is updated and still.. what could be the issue?23:29
oerheksmaybe the howto you used?23:31
sarnoldgbellinoz_: hrm, that's not ideal :/ I've not used equivs myself, the last person I suggested it to replied with a "works great thanks" like two minutes later, so I felt good about suggesting it again :)23:33
gbellinoz_I guess the question is "how to purge without actually removing the package from the db and cascading things", then I can replace the real package with the equiv.23:34
A_DThere a known bug regarding firefox rendering?23:45
A_Djust updated and it appears to be broken for me23:46
A_DId post a screenshot but it doesn't seem to like me trying with the popup open23:47
gbellinoz_What firefox version? What Ubuntu version? What graphics card?23:50
sarnoldA_D: what are you seeing? I just instal;led and restarted firefox, I don't spot anything funny yet..23:50
A_Dlemme see if I can get a decent screenshot23:50
A_Dactually you know what23:52
A_Dthis might be shadowfox23:52
A_Dyep okay its shadowfox23:53
sarnoldhah, crazy23:55
A_Dgbellinoz_: 70, latest update, was released today, but as said, shadowfox, so this is a case of user using plugins and changing things that arent updated yet >.>23:56
