damansany ideas why ubuntu would give this error on boot: ./dev/md2/ unexpected inconsistency on startup00:45
doug16kdamans, filesystem corruption00:46
damansi dont get what would have caused it tho00:47
damansi only rebooted it00:47
doug16kabruptly powering off?00:47
damansyou know what the only thing previously that i did do was go into bios for a moment to check something but after that i reboot from it00:47
damansi didnt save anything or anything like that00:48
doug16kyou should unmount it and do: sudo fsck -N /dev/md200:49

fairuzHi, is there a way to let say when a web application run by www-data (nginx) create a log file in /xxxx/logs/foo.log, this foo.log is owned by user:www-data instead of www-data:www-data? Thanks05:09
ayewwell you could insert a chmod that automatically runs softwhere. but wouldnt it be easier to add "user" to www-data and use a suitable umask? unless you really need a specific user to be owner and not just give it access whilst restricting others05:11
doug16kfairuz, you could set an acl on it with setfacl to grant more permissions on that file05:14
doug16kif you have a logrotate happening you might hit a problem there05:15
fairuzdoug16k yea, it's a daily log05:16
doug16kis adding "user" to the www-data group unacceptable?05:16
ayewas far as im aware, its fine05:17
doug16kthen you could do: sudo usermod -a -G www-data user05:18
doug16kit would take effect when they next log in, or, to test it right away, run: sudo su user05:18
ayewyou need to make sure gninx's umask is something suitable as well, such as 02205:19
doug16kthen less /xxxx/logs/foo.log05:19
=== gender is now known as dax
doug16kexit to go back to yourself05:19
fairuzso if the user belongs to www-data, I practically can chown the whole app folder to www-data:www-data right?05:22
doug16kyes, the ---rwx--- bits would apply to them (the group permissions)05:22
doug16kthe first 3 and last 3 things won't apply05:22
fairuzHow about the umask? How to check on that05:22
ayewby default, its usually 002 or 022. you can manually set it in the systemd service file with the option "umask="05:24
ayewactually, i think the linux default is 022, not 002, so you shouldnt need to set one unless the service file has something different set05:25

doug16kok, what is the file mode? can you show ls -l foo.log05:28

fairuzdoug16k ah maybe I go too far05:30

fairuzdoug16k noted05:36
doug16kthe OS will only look at owner bits (1st 3 bits) when the owner matches the current user, else if the current user is in the file's group, then it will only look at the group bits, else it will look at the other bits05:37

fairuz_Is this related to the number after the patch 7.3.11-x?09:11
Ben64fairuz_: it says DNE - does not exist09:20
fairuz_Ben64 that's where I don't understand really. Correct me if I'm wrong, what I understand is 1) The fix is done in upstream php 7.3.11. 2) Need to wait for Ubuntu package readiness for php 7.3.1109:22
Ben64the fix is released for everything except the ones in red - php5 on trusty, and php7.3 on focal09:23
fairuz_Ben64 sorry for the question, but DNE also mean released?09:24
Ben64I just explained that, means does not exist09:24

acebrianjuanHi all11:31
acebrianjuanI need to find the name of a qt package on Ubuntu 16.0411:31
acebrianjuanThe package libqt5charts5-dev exists for Ubuntu 18.04 and above, but I can't find it on Ubuntu 16.0411:31
TJ-acebrianjuan: presumably because 16.04 doesn't have full QT5 support? possibly only QT4 ?11:33
acebrianjuanTJ-: that's a good point11:34
acebrianjuanhow can I check this?11:34
tomreynyou could compare the output of     apt-cache search --names-only ^qt4    with that of    apt-cache search --names-only ^qt511:36
TJ-acebrianjuan: Best procedure is to look at the package's changelog, or its homepage for release info/dates, or try hacking the version numbers in a search on packages.ubuntu.com for 16.0411:37
acebrianjuanI'm doing manual searches at https://packages.ubuntu.com11:37
TJ-acebrianjuan: if you do " apt-get changelog libqt5charts5-dev" and scroll to the first entry (bottom of file) you'll see it was only added as a package in 2017 and the version is 5.911:38
acebrianjuanFor instance, the package qtbase5-dev does exist in Xenial, but not the libqt5charts5-dev package11:38
TJ-acebrianjuan: that info strongly suggests there was no QT 4 release11:38
acebrianjuanTJ-: oh the apt-get changelog is a very useful command11:39
TJ-acebrianjuan: you can always see the abbreviated changelog even offline, with "less /usr/share/doc/<binary-package-name>/changelog.Debian.gz"11:43
TJ-acebrianjuan: apt-get fetches the entire log which may go back 15 years11:43
acebrianjuanTJ-: ok, I've just checked and Qt packages were frozen at version 5.5.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 so if the first reference in the libqt5charts5-dev changelog is from Qt 5.9 then surely there was no such package in Ubuntu 16.04 as you suggested11:45

ixilI want to use ubuntu 18.04 server as a systemd-nspawn container but I'm having problems with it saying it could not mount /run/lock - any ideas?12:12
cluelesspersontomreyn, it doesn't always happen either, any ideas on how to provide more context?12:13
cluelesspersonI think that time might be a factor here.  I notice it seems to happen more reliably after long desktop sessions12:13
cluelessperson(grain of salt)12:13
tomreyncluelessperson: you could start by telling whihc ubuntu version you run (lsb_release -ds), which web browser, and how it was installed, how it receives updates.12:33
tomreynand the web browser version as well12:34

SiamasterI have a problem where I can't read up to 3 GB of files before my computer totally freezes and I have to reinstall14:11
Siamasteryesterday, I tried a dd command someone helped me with here that would just read from a drive14:11
Siamasterand it's the same problem everytime, I can copy some files, as soon as they reach around 2,5 GB in total, computer crashes14:12
SiamasterI asked on #hardware , they said it could be a corrupted OS installation, and I remember having weird issue when I reinstalled ubuntu last time14:12
Siamasterand I didn't have this problem before that14:12

hermonethichello, this is the third day for me here trying to run ubuntu 19.10 on my asus zenbook ux431fn, but it did not work. after the grub I got black screen and the computer freezed. I try to install the Nvidia drivers, update the bios, boot nomodeset and nothing happened. any suggestion? thanks15:07
hermonethicis It possible that I just cant run ubuntu on my hardware? should I try the LTS version instead of the new one ?15:08
gradyhermonethic: try without virtualization.. disable iommu...15:08

oerheksafter downloading and saving that file, "drm.edid_firmware=eDP-1:edid/1920x1080.bin"15:10
gradywhy we use grub anyways, it is such a ugly word, its try to be te OS itself and thats why we have these odd boot problems. why bootloader need to mess with graphic card?15:10
oerhekslordcirth, see that post, looks promising15:10
mgedminoh wow bad edid, amazing15:10

lotuspsychjegrady: are you beind a router or firewall?15:26
gradyit is a my firewall, all working great yesterday15:26
SiamasterI don't know how to check what version I'm usually using. I don't want this error free start up to end yet15:26
lotuspsychjegrady: did you test with direct cable/connection?15:27
TJ-Siamaster: tip: "journalctl --list-boots" shows all recent boot sessions and "journalctl -b -X | head" (where X is e.g. -4) will show you which kernel version booted15:27
mgedmingrady: did you test with tracepath or traceroute?15:27
gradyit is on direct connection15:27
gradyno, im not ubuntu* admin :)15:28
mgedminTJ-, Siamaster: you can also see this information with `last reboot`, with less typing15:28

Siamasterthanks! so it was 5.0.0-32-generic Tue Oct 29 15:1815:28
Siamastereven with timestamp! :P15:29
lotuspsychjegrady: ok lets ask in #ubuntu-mirrors then for known issues perhaps?15:29
TJ-'last' doesn't go as far back as journalctl though15:29
SiamasterI will try update to latest linux version later then. Perhaps it was just an issue with that kernel?15:30
SiamasterI thought the kernel updates regularly automatically15:31

Sven_vBMy bluetooth headphones' play/pause button alternates between sending key 209 (XF86AudioPause) and key 208 (XF86AudioPlay). VLC ignores XF86AudioPause and uses XF86AudioPlay for play/pause toggle. How can I permanently reassign key 209 to be XF86AudioPlay as well? xmodmap works, but only for the duration of the BT connection; at least the effect is lost next time I reconnect my BT headphones.16:28
Sven_vBusing Xenial16:28
mgedminI wonder if it wouldn't be easer to change vlc's keybindings16:29
Sven_vBI tried that, too, but couldn't find a way to set both keys for the same action.16:30
mgedminthat's annoying...16:31
Sven_vBand I want both to toggle, so I can use the headphone key and space bar in arbitrary order and they will always toggle.16:32
Sven_vBelse I could assign one to pause and one to play/continue16:32
mgedminhmm https://askubuntu.com/questions/138522/how-do-i-run-a-script-when-a-bluetooth-device-connects16:32
mgedminit boils down to "here's a custom python script that monitors bluetooth connections over dbus and runs a command"16:33
mgedminwhich could be xmodmap16:33
Sven_vBI'd prefer to run as few watchers as possible, as my netbook has very limited RAM. else I could inotifywait --monitor the /sys/… directories16:33
ducasseSven_vB: modifications made by xmodmap are reset every time an xkb tool runs, maybe use those instead?16:33
Sven_vBducasse, thanks, I'll read about them!16:34
mgedminhttps://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/476094/run-a-script-when-bluetooth-device-is-connected suggests a script launched from udev16:34
mgedminbut getting such a script to connect to your X session might be complicated16:34
Sven_vBthanks, that could be an idea as well. maybe if the /sys/ dir paths are stable enough I could also watch them with systemd. still seems to be a rather unelegant hack.16:35
mgedminin newer ubuntu versions (19.04 definitely) I believe gnome-shell intercepts these keys and uses them to control any media player you have running via MPRIS16:35
Sven_vBmgedmin, that would ne be a problem. I do have cron scripts interact with my X session, spying the DISPLAY var from xfce panel.16:36
Sven_vB*would not16:36
Sven_vBoh I use xfce so gnome shell shouldn't interfere.16:36
Sven_vBducasse, did you have a specific xkb tool in mind?16:42
ducasseSven_vB: xlbcomp and setxkbmap are the ones you would need16:43
Sven_vBducasse, thanks, I'll read about them then16:43
Sven_vBoh so that's the way to create my own custom keyboard layout?16:45
Guest_8Hi can someone give me some assistance with Thunderbird and enigmail please16:46
Sven_vBso does the default session keyboard layout apply to USB and BT devices connected later that don't look like a keyboard?16:46
mgedminafaik no16:47
mgedminnewly plugged x input devices like keyboards get the standard keymap16:47
mgedminyou're expected to use some kind of a desktop session daemon that notices plugged in devices and applies custom keymap settings16:47
oerheks!info enigmail16:48
mgedminI don't know if xfce has anything like that16:48

mgedminI'm pretty sure gnome doesn't16:48
Sven_vBGuest_8, a good start would be to say the versions (Ubuntu, desktop environment, applications), describe your intent, what you tried, what you expected, and what happened instead. if someone is around who knows, they might decide to react.16:48
oerheksGuest_8, our repos give the latest, what is your issue?16:49
Sven_vBducasse, mgedmin, if I need to apply the custom keymap on device connect, I could just as well run xmodmap on the same trigger.16:49
Guest_8ubuntu 19.10 gnome, I have installed thunderbird and enigmail I have 2 email accounts that i used to have encryption set up for but thunderbird says it cant decrypt my messages but i have the secret key in seahorse16:50
Sven_vBmgedmin, I'll try a systemd trigger then. thanks!16:52
Sven_vBducasse, if mgedmin was wrong and the xbk tools can alias the key permanently, please tell me.16:52

ioriajohn_doe_jr, how old ?18:14
john_doe_jrioria: lucid18:15
oerheksjust do a fresh instal, not lucid ofcourse18:15
ioriajohn_doe_jr, no, the pc specs18:15
john_doe_jroerheks: I really need the data on this server though.18:15
oerheksif you had no backup of your data already, it is not important.18:15
lotuspsychjejohn_doe_jr: lets hope that server isnt connected to the internet?18:16
john_doe_jroerheks: well, I is legally important that I keep the data as is.18:16
john_doe_jrlotuspsychje: it's connect to the internet.18:16
TJ-john_doe_jr: you could use the oldreleases.ubuntu.com archive servers to do release-upgrades 10.04 >  12.04 > 14.04 and then to 16.04 > 18.0418:16
oerheksupgrding over 2 eol versions, interesting.18:17
ioriaTJ-, i tried that few months ago ... not so smooth18:17
EriC^of course whatever is on the server might break anyways18:17
EriC^i'd backup the whole thing then fresh install and see if you can get it working on 16.04 or 18.0418:17
john_doe_jrEriC^: I really can't change it in any way…legal reasons.18:18
ioriajohn_doe_jr, ^ that's why asked you about the pc specs18:18
oerhekslots of things to read, systemd and other changes18:18
john_doe_jrioria: it's running on a virtual machine…I can change the memory etc.18:19
TJ-ioria: I recently did a 12.04 > 14.04 > 16.04 > 18.04 without too many issues. Just had to pay attention to all the changes to config file syntax when there were diffs18:19
oerheks'legal reasons' should made you keep up2date18:19
ioriaTJ-, ok18:19
john_doe_jroerheks: exactly…not my fault though.18:20
pragmaticenigmajohn_doe_jr: it sounds like you really need to be in contact with the contract holder that requires the data as is. If accessability is required, what you should do is install a new server with the latest Ubuntu version on it, then use it as a VPN endpoint/firewall to the older machine to protect it18:20
pragmaticenigmajohn_doe_jr: that said, interconnectivity between the lucid install and the newer (recommending bionic) install may have difficulties as many of the encryption ciphers between the two version of Ubuntu are vastly different.18:21
TJ-john_doe_jr: if it's a VM guest then you can clone it to another non-Internet guest instance and test the and perfect the upgrade process18:22
john_doe_jrTJ-: well, that's what I'm doing right now…just need to know how to go about doing the upgrade process.18:22
ducasse!eolupgrade | john_doe_jr18:23

ioriainactivity maybe18:28
pragmaticenigmaWulf: In most cases it a administrative setup to automatically log a user off the machine after a period of inactivity18:28
Wulfstupid feature. Just lock the screen.18:28

pragmaticenigmaomega_doom: it might help to know how you are interacting with the machine. Is it via SSH, Telnet, Local Desktop GUI?18:36
omega_doompragmaticenigma: Local desktop.18:36
omega_doomThis is the known bug.18:37
pragmaticenigmaomega_doom: if it is a known bug, and there isn't a work around listed in the bug then I'm not sure how to help you. If what you are running is strictly a command line application, you can try launching it in a tmux or screen session. Which would persist after being logged out of the machine18:38
omega_doomsomething like that - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OG4deLa_vK818:41
ioriaomega_doom, we really misunderstood you18:43
omega_doomioria: why?18:44
omega_doomWhen logout happens by timeout then there is infinit login loop.18:45
ioriaomega_doom, and the culprit is .Xauthority ?18:45
omega_doomioria: Idk. I haven't tried it. But i have tried something else and it works - to kill some process but i cannot find this solition.18:47
ioriaomega_doom, ok, but how did you set the automatic logout ?18:48
omega_doomioria: It's in privacy settings.18:51

Randolfoerheks: I have to use an old Windows machine to compile and run any JavaFX applications, which sucks because I'm trying to get away from Windows.  I can't even install the Java 8 JRE or Java 8 JDK under WINE.18:56

Randolfpragmaticenigma: I don't understand, I'm sorry.  I wish I did.  Is that easy to do?18:57
Randolfoerheks: That guy is using NetBeans.  I'm not using NetBeans, and the same goes for nearly every end-user.18:58
pragmaticenigmaberyoli: I was asking about the destination, where you copied the files "to"18:58
oerheksRandolf, no clue then..18:58
pragmaticenigmaRandolf: https://askubuntu.com/a/14864518:59
beryolipragmaticenigma sorry I misread. I copied/pasted, checked, did not unmount the destination drive, unmounted the source drive from gparted then formatted, then checked again..18:59
Randolfoerheks: I'm thinking that I need to perhaps figure out how to get the sources for JDK-and-JRE and combine JavaFX into it, then figure out how to compile and build for the various platforms.  As it is now, Java has become dysfunctional and extremely frustrating for anyone who is not using Java 8 on Windows (and Windows users want to use the newer versions of Java too, which don't include JavaFX).19:00
Randolfpragmaticenigma: Thanks.  I'll try that.19:00
Randolfpragmaticenigma: Actually, "universe" and all the other repositories are already enabled on my system.19:03
pawhy aptitude remove <somepackages> actually tries to also remove other packages that are simply no longer required (but unrelated to the ones i want to remove)?19:09
Randolfpa:  Is it suggesting that you use the "apt autoremove" command?  If so, it's just reminding you that you have unused packages that are safe to remove as they are no longer dependencies.  If you plan to re-install packages that depend on them, then it's actually convenient to leave them there as they won't need to be re-installed as well.19:20
pragmaticenigmaRandolf: what version of Ubuntu are you currently running?19:21
pano it's not doing that. it's actually trying to remove those19:23
pabut nvm, i went the dpkg way19:23
Randolfpragmaticenigma: I'm using Ubuntu Linux 18.04.1 LTS on 64-bit Intel hardware.19:38
pragmaticenigmaRandolf: You're running an older version of 18.04 if you have xx.yy.119:40
pragmaticenigmaRandolf: I don't think it should matter much, but you should be running 18.04.3 ... are you missing some updates?19:40
RandolfI'll check for updates.19:41
RandolfJust 32 packages.19:41
RandolfI do keep the system up to date normally.19:41
tomreyn!aptitude | pa19:42
ubottupa: 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.19:42
tomreynRandolf: hmm, i'd expect to see more than 32 updated packages between .1 and .3 - but maybe you have really few packages installed.19:43
Randolftomreyn: The updates are just modules like samba, Google Chrome, and whatnot (I use Opera mostly, which is already up-to-date).19:43
RandolfI see a bunch of Python and Linux Header updates.19:44
tomreynand kernel image updates, too, i would assume? cat /proc/version reports what you are currently running and when it was built19:44
RandolfYes, it's updating kernel stuff right now.19:45
Randolf/proc/version:  Linux version 5.0.0-31-generic (buildd@lgw01-amd64-046) (gcc version 7.4.0 (Ubuntu 7.4.0-1ubuntu1~18.04.1)) #33~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 10:20:39 UTC 201919:45
RandolfThat's post-updates now.19:45
tomreynso you rebooted already?19:46
RandolfNot yet.19:46
RandolfI'm using this machine that I just updated.19:46
TJ-Randolf: for javaFX and openjdk, the point is to add the JavaFX library paths to the Java ClassPath used to start the VM. If there's an IDE wrapping the JDK like netbeans or eclipse that is done via some GUI text entry, but for raw CLI its added via "javac -classpath /path/to/whereever" - this is usually wrapped in a shell script19:46
tomreynokay, looks better than i expected, then, since this kernel is current, maybe you're using live patching19:46
RandolfI think I am, but I'm not clear on what that means.  I'm still fairly new to Linux (I have a long background in NetBSD Unix, and only recently started using Linux on my laptop after Windows 10 kept b0rking itself beyond repair).19:47
TJ-Randolf: unfortunately, things changed rather dramatically after openJDK v8 to use modules, which requiers a whole different approach19:49
tomreyn!livepatch | Randolf19:52
ubottuRandolf: 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/livepatch19:52
Randolftomreyn: Thanks, I'll take a look at that.19:52
tomreynkeep in mind you'd still want to keep the user space updated19:53
tomreynunattended-upgrades is a way to do so or, on desktops, just software-properties-gtk --open-tab=2   (replace 'gtk' by 'qt' on qt based desktops such as kde)19:54
RandolfTJ-: Yeah, that's become a major problem for some sites and for various end users who have been relying on JavaFX.  Adding the library path for JavaFX hasn't actually resolved the problem, and so this is why I'm now interested in trying to build a JRE and JDK from official sources that includes JavaFX (I expect I'll probably have to change something to make this work, and hopefully not very much).19:54
RandolfTJ-: I haven't looked into just bundling the entirety of the JavaFX libraries into my .jar files, and I'd rather not for a number of reasons.19:56
lord2yo/ q: is there a way to identify to which release a package belongs to?19:56
RandolfTJ-: The folks in the #java channel helped me get maven going, but the problem with this is the final .jar file doesn't run without a long set of command-line parameters to include JavaFX modules, and I can't expect end-users to use Maven to run Java software.19:58
TJ-Randolf: according to the Launchpad libopenjfx-java notes, the openjfx (binary) package is supposed to integrate into the JRE 8 classpath but I don't see anything in its source to cause that19:58
RandolfMaven is extremely complicated to configure though, and I spent more than an entire day getting it working.  Apparently I should be able to use it to generate native executables for various platforms, but none of the suggestions seem to work (someone told me just the other day that even if I do get it working, an update to Maven will break it in the future, and the same problem comes up with Gradle apparently).19:59
RandolfTJ-: Well, what you're not finding in the source is consistent with my experience of it not getting integrated.19:59
TJ-Randolf: digging in20:01
RandolfI've got a bunch of Windows users stuck on Java 8, and I've had to help a few of them revert back to version 8 after they had someone help them upgrade to newer versions.  As for Linux, Java 8 doesn't even do JavaFX at all, so that's a completely lost cause.20:01
RandolfI'd much prefer to use the newest versions of Java and JavaFX, but from my perspective they're simply broken.20:01
RandolfWhat I'd also like to do is generate a native 32-bit and 64-bit executable binaries for Linux, Windows, and MacOS that come bundled with the JRE that has JavaFX integrated.20:04
RandolfI'm beyond caring about how big the resulting executable will be anymore because the JRE is so hopeless now with major parts having been cannibalized.20:04
sarnoldheh, be sure to have your legal team well fed beforehand, I can imagine that conversation with oracle would be loads of fun :)20:05
RandolfI used to care, and prefer to keep binaries down to a small size as much as possible, but because of how things are changing it looks like this is not longer a possibility.  :(20:05
ryuoRandolf: java has always been a giant soup.20:05
ryuopart of why i generally avoid java based software.20:06
Randolfryuo: Oh yeah, Java's JVM and JRE certainly are, but the whole idea of "write once, run anywhere" was what drew me in to learning Java in the first place with the understanding that a JRE will be needed for all Java applications.20:06
ryuoRandolf: more like write once debug anywhere, but this is starting to leave the realm of support.20:07
Randolfryuo: Having a consistent GUI regardless of Operating System is really nice too.  JFC/Swing made that possible, and JavaFX was supposed to be the successor to that, but it seems that Oracle has decided that they don't care about backward compatibility.20:07
Randolfryuo: Fair enough.20:07
ryuoRandolf: #ubuntu-offtopic ?20:07
Randolfryuo: I think I've expressed my concerns enough.  Getting this stuff working on Ubuntu is where I'm stuck now.20:08
Randolfsarnold: Does Oracle own OpenJDK?20:09
sarnoldRandolf: I'm not sure any more, they've made enough changes lately..20:11
TJ-Randolf: I *think* I have a clue... at some point recently the package Dependency on openjdk (any versions) was totally removed. My bet is at the same time a .postinst script to set the classpath was also removed20:12
TJ-Randolf: unfortunately though, Ubuntu doesn't keep it in a VCS so I can't easily check the history20:13
TJ-Randolf: looks like it's come direct from Debian, and in the changelog "openjfx (11+26-1) unstable; urgency=medium" (Wed, 03 Oct 2018) says in part: "Depend on default-jdk instead of openjdk-8" which it no longer does, so since that release I'd suspect it changed again. Don't see anything in the changelog to reflect that though20:16
plujonI'm curious how https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdb/+bug/1845494 occurred .  Specifically, the bug is a failure of gdb on any 32-bit x86 executable .  Does this mean that some packages are released without any testing?20:18
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1845494 in gdb (Ubuntu) "gdb 8.1-0ubuntu3.1 freezes before call main function while debugging 32bit application" [Undecided,Confirmed]20:18
TJ-Randolf: gotchya! https://salsa.debian.org/java-team/openjfx/commit/1e5786809154c24f92509a2d19c1274af58606a620:20
sarnoldplujon: it doesn't appear there are any automated tests for gdb http://autopkgtest.ubuntu.com/testlist#index-g -- you could probably add some tests :) https://dep-team.pages.debian.net/deps/dep8/20:21
RandolfTJ-: So, it looks like JavaFX was intentionally taken out of the package.  Am I reading that right?20:21
pragmaticenigmaplujon: Many of the 32bit packages are not being tested anymore and soon being removed completely from Ubuntu in the upcoming 20.04 release20:21
TJ-Randolf: debian/rules line 58 onwards; those symlinks were dropped... my guess is if you create a shell script to create them appropriately to the new install location you may get somewhere20:22
RandolfTJ-: Cool!  I'll try that.20:22
pragmaticenigmaplujon: specifically those like the one you highlighted in the bug report.20:23
plujonsarnold: Thanks for the link.  I'll take a look.20:23
RandolfTJ-: I'm still interested in figuring out how to compile the newest OpenJDK with JavaFX integrated for multiple OSes.  I could put something like that up on GitLab or some other public service like that.20:23
TJ-Randolf: If I were you I'd email the committer  Emmanuel Bourg  there for reasons for the change and if the expected result is to no longer work with the JRE - and where that was documented as a regression? (obviously it doesn't seem to have been!)20:24
plujonpragmaticenigma: 32-bit packages will be removed completely?  Good to know, and a little surprising...20:24
plujonI wonder how many distros are doing that.20:24
RandolfTJ-: I would like for end-users to have a single JRE download that includes JavaFX so they can continue to run their JavaFX programs without having to go through all the hassle of modifying command lines and whatnot.20:24
pragmaticenigmaplujon: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/32bit_support20:25
TJ-Randolf: That's one hell of a job. I briefly maintained builds of openJDK-8 when it was new and quickly dropped it as a painful time sink20:25
sarnoldplujon: we're keeping some 32 bit libraries because popular applications like Steam link against them and use them on amd64 hosts20:25
Randolfplujon: 64-bit hardware has been around for quite a long time now, and 32-bit hardware is pretty much completely retired in the commercial space, plus most home users seem to be on 64-bit hardware now anyway, so I'm not losing any sleep over the switch-over to 64-bit Linux.20:25
TJ-Randolf: *if* you can figure out how to simply add these symlinks that debian/rules dh_install used to do *and* it works, all you need do is provide a simple shell script with some sanity checks before it blindly changes anything20:26
Randolfsarnold: I suspect that big names like Steam will probably work toward switching to 64-bit API calls at some point too.20:26
pragmaticenigmaplujon: following up that with this release from Canonical: https://ubuntu.com/blog/statement-on-32-bit-i386-packages-for-ubuntu-19-10-and-20-04-lts20:27
RandolfTJ-: Thanks.  That's great to know that symlinks will be all that's needed on Linux.  For me, it will be great.  For my end-users, well, that's a different story.20:27
TJ-Randolf: I *think* that is all ... proof will be when you have it working :)20:27
RandolfOf course.  :)20:27
TJ-Randolf: my point is, at least for Debian/Ubuntu users, you could create your own small .deb package with a .postinst shell script to do the job... put that in an Ubuntu PPA of your own and users can easily add/install it20:28
RandolfTJ-: I can see that project requiring huge amounts of time, by the way.  Thanks for working on it in the past.20:28
sarnoldRandolf: I'm surprised they didn't do that five years ago, but they were the ones complaining when we said we weren't going to do 32 bit any more. heh.20:28
TJ-Is the Steam issue they're got precompiled 32-bit binaries and cannot recompile, or is it more nuanced in that the code uses struct's that assume 32-bit wide fields?20:29
Randolfsarnold: Well, it's good that Ubuntu is still supporting it because gamers are probably (I assume) a significantly-sized portion of the user base.20:29
plujonpragmaticenigma: Ah, thanks.  I see.20:29
Randolf32-bit wide fields should be no problem in 64-bit code.20:30
TJ-Randolf: oh yes they are, if not properly aligned20:30
TJ-Got to deal with struct padding and packing20:33
RandolfWell, yeah, taking care to get the alignment right I would think goes without saying.20:34
TJ-That's a problem with simply recompiling 32-bit code; you've got to check that all structs remain the same size if they relate to on-disk data formats20:37
RandolfTJ-: Oh, I wasn't meaning that 32-bit code should simply be re-compiled.  With my background in programming machine language, I appreciate why that's a problem.20:38
RandolfOh, I just found this on Twitter:  while (true) { Thread.yield(); } // https://twitter.com/theosib2/status/106906882578045747220:39

Randolflordcirth: Okay.20:40

_kabSo my upgrade to 19.10 went as well as I have expected which is to say my system doesn't boot because it can't mount the rootfs anymore. Attempting repairs from a chroot didn't go very far because lvm2 doesn't appear to work correctly inside the chroot (vgsscan for example runs into timeouts and effectively does nothing). Any ideas?20:51
th34lch3m1sthi all20:51
RandolfTJ-: Well, I see the various javafx* files under /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/lib so there's no need to create symbolic links.  Java still spits out this error though:  java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application20:53
RandolfHello th34lch3m1st.20:53
th34lch3m1st19.10 I was on ubuntu software to install the player Clementine. It shows 2 times (Clementine) and (clementine player), same version (1.3.1)....20:54
th34lch3m1stbu one version is 4,8MB and the other 176MB.... ??? What's the story?20:54
TJ-Randolf: how did those files get there though? from the libjavafx package?20:55
TJ-Randolf: try "dpkg -S /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/lib/<filename>" to determine which package installed those20:55
RandolfTJ-: I just used "apt" to install the newest OpenJDK.20:56
th34lch3m1stI understand that one if those package is a snap, but....170MB difference....20:57
Randolfdpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/lib/javafx.web.jar20:57
th34lch3m1st*of those20:57
RandolfHmm.  That's strange.20:57
RandolfI'll remove the OpenJDK package and see if leave those files there.20:57
hggdhth34lch3m1st: a snap is self-contained, it will be larger20:57
TJ-Randolf: this doesn't show any JavaFX related files there: "apt-file search /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/lib | grep javafx" so I think you put them there in some other way20:57
RandolfPerhaps I did in the past.20:58
pragmaticenigmath34lch3m1st: One of them is likely a snap, a snap is container that has all the necessary libraries and packages need to run. Snaps are intended so you can run specific versions of an application without impact to your primary system. It's biggest help is that the snap provider can keep your system up-to-date with the latest versions, without breaking system compatibility20:59
RandolfTJ-: Removing the JRE and the JDK didn't clear out those files, and the "apt autoremove" cleared out everything except the JavaFX stuff.21:00
RandolfTJ-: Removing OpenJFX also didn't clear them out, but the "apt autoremove" after that did, so it's one of these three that were autoremoved that took them out:  libopenjfx-java libopenjfx-jni openjfx-source21:01

th34lch3m1stpragmaticenigma good to know. Thanks for infos21:03
sarnoldRandolf: oh weird :(21:04
RandolfWell, the javafx* files didn't return.21:04
varesaI found some information saying that the localization preseed parameters can only be set via kernel parameters or initrd but I'm not sure that's for an actual full installation or if they also apply for my case of oem-config-firstboot21:05
Randolf...at least not in the JRE directory.  They are under /usr/share/java/ though (which is where they showed up before too).21:05
TJ-Randolf: the files are from libopenjfx-java (clue in the package name!)  which uses /usr/share/java/openjfx/jre/lib/  for the JRE requirements21:08
RandolfTJ-: That makes sense.21:10
RandolfThe javafx* files are under /usr/share/java/ and there are no subdirectories therein.  I will create the rest of the path you cited, create symlinks, and see if that works.21:10
TJ-Randolf: I think I know what happened there. You originally had the older openjfx packages for openjdk-8 installed which would install to the JRE. Later the package got upgraded to this 11... and the install location moved BUT the package maintainer didn't add a .preinst/.postinst script to find and remove files installed to the old locations21:10
RandolfTJ-: Cool!  That makes sense.21:11
TJ-Randolf: so some of your other issues could have been caused by older openjfx libraries left in place that shouldn't have been there21:11
TJ-Randolf: at this point I'd suggest testing in a clean chroot, container or VM!21:11
RandolfHmm, that didn't work either.21:12
RandolfThe thing is, I get exactly the same results on a brand new installation.21:12
Randolf...with no Java 8 ever having been installed.21:13
RandolfI'm still going to have the same problem Windows, and then there's the MacOS stuff that I haven't bothered to even look at, but I know it will come up in the future too.  Maybe I should just give up on this for now and instead look into compiling the newest OpenJDK with the newest JavaFX pre-integrated.21:15
RandolfTJ-: I do feel like we've made some progress here though.21:15
TJ-Randolf: does/did the older openjfx that is tied to JRE-8 work?21:18
RandolfTJ-: Now, if I insert this before my -jar parameter, software works:  --module-path /usr/share/openjfx/lib --add-modules=javafx.base,javafx.controls,javafx.fxml,javafx.graphics,javafx.media,javafx.swing,javafx.web21:18
RandolfNo, the Java 8 one never works.  Even on new installations.  Just like version 11.  And it doesn't matter if I never installed the other version.21:19
TJ-Randolf: that makes sense for the --module-path etc21:19
RandolfGetting my end-users to do that on Linux is probably going to be okay, but my Windows users are mostly clueless and would freak out at sight of "--module-path" alone.21:20
RandolfThe problem is, the majority of my users are on Windows.  :(21:20
TJ-Randolf: Aren't you shipping with a launcher/batch file that can have that included?21:21
RandolfIs there an easy way to bundle these modules into the .jar file?21:21
RandolfNo, we couldn't find a reliable one, so software was installed and then deployed basically manually.21:21
TJ-In theory you could bundle all the jfx .jar contents into your own .jar ... whether that'd cause issues with discovery I'm not sure21:22
RandolfI've also been trying to get Maven to generate stand-alone executables, but that's been a huge failure.  Gradle isn't looking any better either.21:22

gimmelHi all, I'm currently using ccrypt to encrypt backup files on a Ubuntu Server. The issue with this method is that the keyfile is stored on the filesystem.

FiftyAye it is. You have to run the command before installing it: "sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ disco main' "22:34
FiftySo apt-get uninstall is not the proper command?22:35
oerheksremove --purge22:35
oerheksor add-apt-repository -r <repo>22:36
FiftyGotcha. Remove --purge, then redownload the repository, right?22:36

FiftyDamn. Tried that, and it won't install. Throws an error.22:43
FiftyThe following packages have unmet dependecies: winehq-staging : Depends: wine-staging (= 4.19~disco) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.22:43
jeremy31Fifty: >  sudo apt-get install -f22:48
TJ-Fifty: I've hit issues like that a few times, and recently discovered that using PlayOnLinux (from the archive) avoids a lot of problems22:52
Fiftyjeremy31: "sudo apt-get install -f --install-recommends winehq-staging" Unfortunately, it throws the same issue.22:52
FiftyTJ- Doesn't that only work with games? I'm trying to run the Conan Exiles server program, not the game itself.22:53
TJ-Fifty: no, it's for having highly targeted wine configs per-application - so all applications don't need to share the same ~/.wine/ prefix. Can set wine version per-application along with custom settings. I use it for example with Trimble Sketchup (formerly Google Sketchup)22:54
TJ-Fifty: it also has a lot of pre-configured profiles to automate install22:54
FiftyHmm. I'll give that a look, but I remember trying to install it before but it fucked up as well.22:55
FiftyDamn, installed PlayOnLinux, but it doesn't do 64bit. Only 32bit.23:00
ubottuWINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu23:04
FiftyOoh, that's a good point.23:06
