tatertotsjnj: nope ..but i'm guessing you have and received an error right?00:04
tatertotsjnj: probably unlikely that you tried and was successful so you came here to pose such a question00:04
jnjtatertots, Yeah, but it's less to do with webdav00:05
jnjtatertots, And more to do with fastmail I think00:05
jnjhttps://www.fastmail.com/help/files/davnftp.html00:05
jnjLike, I think I enter in davs://webdav.fastmail.com/ to connect00:06
jnjAnd my username and password, but it just keeps on asking for the password over and over00:06
jnjSo I'm thinking that the path should be something else or more than davs://webdav.fastmail.com/<something here>, but I can't tell what something here is00:07
tatertotsjnj: fastmail has provided 2x / two methods of accessing and managing your files...you are repeatedly asked to authenticat using 1of2 methods according to your testimony ...what happens when you use method 2of2?00:12
jnjtatertots, Are you talking about ftp?00:12
jnjSame thing, keeps on asking for the password over and over again00:13
jnjI think I need the correct path, but I have no clue what path it is00:13
tatertotsjnj: according to your testimony you are repeatedly asked to authenticate using both method(s) 1of2 AND 2of2....at this point they may be under some maintenance or outage...or you have a local problem on your PC or LAN/network00:14
jnjtatertots, What methods are you talking about?00:15
tatertotsjnj: to further deduce this scenario ...do you have a second computer or device to attempt from, including but not limited to a smartphone, a family members PC, xbox/PS300:15
jnjtatertots, I could try a webdav app on my phone00:16
tatertotsjnj: the link you provided https://www.fastmail.com/help/files/davnftp.html00:16
tatertotsjnj: shows 2 methods00:16
tatertotsjnj:  you have the same symptoms with method 1of2 AND 2of2 as per your account00:16
tatertotsjnj: make sure when trying from the phone that you are NOT connected to your wifi00:17
tatertotsjnj: make sure you are using the "cellular" network as to not inherent any issues you might have on your LAN/network...turn wifi OFF and use 3G/4G HSPDA/LTE data00:19
tatertotsjnj: report the result you get using the phone and we'll proceed00:19
tatertotsjnj: thank you ..and have a great day00:20

indoorcatis there a way to fix it?00:43
indoorcatwithout doing a fresh install00:43
akkMaybe something about your firefox profile? Try mv ~/.mozilla ~/mozilla.sav before starting firefox, let it make a new profile, and see if that helps.00:45

fooI'm going to install ubuntu desktop on a dell inspiron. I haven't installed ubuntu on a box in over a decade. I want LTS, it'll primarily be used as a server02:04
fooUbuntu 18.04.3 LTS is what I want, correct?02:04
oerheksindeed02:05
foonext, how do I install. thumb drive? /me investigates02:07
foooerheks: the primary use is for a server, the display would only be to show terminal / images or something... is desktop really worthwhile?02:07
foooerheks: like, 95% of the use case is for server on a laptop / transferring data / backing up data... I might use the screen to display a photo or something02:08
oerheksgnome3 would be pretty heavy for just a gui, choose xubuntu or mate?02:08
oerheks!flavors02:08
ubottuRecognized Ubuntu flavors build on Ubuntu and provide a different user experience out of the box. They are supported both in #ubuntu and in their flavor channel. For a list, see https://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-flavours02:08
foooerheks: almost thinking ubuntu server... and then install something on the frontend afterward. Last time I used ubuntu I used fluxbox if I recall correctly (that was over 10 years ago)02:08
foooerheks: ok, I can start with ubnutu server then install that afterwards, right?02:08
oerhekssure, fluxbox, i3-wm, ..02:08
foook, ok, ubuntu server it is02:09
fooI assume usb key is the best way to install?02:09
* foo looks for his usb key02:09
oerheksinstall server, setup ssh, generate keys and setup login02:09
oerheksand go wild02:09
fooahh yeah.02:09
foousb key the way to go, yeah?02:09
oerhekssure02:10
tatertotsfoo: you may need the help from the "managers" in the desktop version....server edition doesn't have certain "managers" that assist noobish / rookie users...i.e network manager02:10
foooerheks: eg. I don't think I can start an installer on windows 10 and have it work, I'd need some external media02:10
footatertots: if that's a simple apt-get post-server install, I think I can get that. I done quite a bit of linux admin, just haven't done laptop use for a while02:11
tatertotsfoo: and on a laptop with wifi..you'll probably want the assistance and ease of use of "network manager" ...not to mention the other assistive tools/utilities in "desktop" edition02:11
* sharpie does the Macarena02:11
* foo joins sharpie 02:12
tatertotsfoo: also if you're going to install server..only then to install a GUI and put back a bunch of "managers" ..you would have saved time and effort just using the "desktop" edition....that's all I have to say on the matter..good luck and have a nice day02:12
foook, ok, I'm sold, tatertots sold me.02:12
tatertotslol :)02:12
fooHmm, unless... I wired this thing in, and scratched using it as any sort of display.02:12
fooThat was a nice-to-have. It'll primarily be a workhorse02:13
* foo check hard drive size on it02:13
foo1TB, 4GB of RAM, intel core i3 CPU @ 2.10Ghz... if it's primarily a work horse, and has a screen, perhaps I just keep it at CLI02:14
fooand wire it in02:14
fooin which case, I stick with ubuntu server02:14
* foo does one last check in with tatertots to see if there's hope02:14
fooit's primarily for backing up data.02:14
* foo waits for tatertots to join the Macarena02:15
tatertotsfoo: go for it...just don't say nobody warned you02:15
footatertots: so you still advocate for desktop, even if I'm not using wifi with next-to-no ... I mean, to be fair, it IS a laptop. It is not a server. If you're suggesting I might hit driver issues/compatibility issues because I didn't install desktop... then I'm all for desktop. is that partly what you're saying?02:16
footatertots: it's a dell inspiron laptop.02:16
fooIf that's the case, then desktop is the answer02:16
tatertotsfoo: personally if you're going to be dependent on a GUI and GUI utilities ...desktop is your friend...unless you're comfortable using parted instad of gparted for managing disk from the command line as just 1x example (technically 2x since we arlready talked about wifi and network manager)02:17
tatertotsfoo: do you want more?02:18
footatertots: hm, I do see your point. I've spent 20+ years in CLI... so I'm probably comfortable there. Perhaps the question is, how easy do I want this to be? Haha.02:18
sharpiefoo, in my opinion, if the machine can do what you need it to, it will do it. install what you want and take it for a test drive.02:19
foosharpie: I value anyone's opinion who advocates the Macarena. Thank you for chiming in.02:20
tatertotsfoo: just keep the same screen name so i can enjoy a little laugh if you're flopping about like a fish out of water02:20

altendkyi am trying to diagnose an issue with the hdmi output on my lenovo p1 gen 2.  so far the only apparent effect of connecting an hdmi display is that i get the (kde) screen layout osd shown.  i haven't found anything new listed in the system settings > display and monitor > display page nor in xrandr.  no log messages via journalctl or /var/log/Xorg.0.log.  i'm starting to look through bug reports but my question for the03:12
altendkymoment is: where should i be looking for 'low level' information about the hdmi port or external displays in general to try to get some starting point to debug from?03:12
tatertotsaltendky: have you toggled the "keyboard shortcut" on lenovo's that controls display output?....usually a Fn/function key "combination"03:15
tatertotsaltendky: i'm going to go out on a limb and guess you have NOT03:15
altendkytatertots: i've got FnLock 'on' and Fn+F7 brings up the same 'screen layout osd' (not sure the proper term) but i've not noticed any other effect from it03:16
tatertotsaltendky: turn FnLock "OFF" and try again03:17
altendkyi'll admit i did have this working at some point but i've been chasing several other bugs.  finally got the other two (black screen on resume and lack of brightness control) fixed so i'm back to hdmi output.  presently i'm going back through various kernels and reconfirming they don't work.03:17
altendkytatertots: no apparent difference other than reversing whether i need to press the Fn key to get the osd to pop up03:18
tatertotsaltendky: on the "screen layout OSD" how many different options are visable in total?03:19
tatertotsaltendky: describe each03:20
altendkytatertots: https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/q809J1gH/image.png03:21
altendkytatertots: clicking on them can have the effect of setting my laptop display back to 4k (i've been running at 1920x1080)03:21
tatertotsaltendky: it should just work..i don't want to get to aggressive with you and start asking for screen shots , photos and logs...so maybe just mess around with it a bit..maybe try it from LiveCD/LiveUSB03:22
tatertotsaltendky: thanks for the image03:22
altendkytatertots: i've messed around.  :]  i'm working back through the kernels again.  4.15 oem didn't work.  5.0 oem sp1 doesn't.  for the other two fixes i'm running a locally patched 5.4.0+ from git.  well, one is in 5.3.12, the other i ported forward from 4.15 oem so i could have both in one kernel03:23
tatertotsaltendky: looks as i would expect...the system is showing you the different screen configurations available when a second display is attached03:23
altendkybug reports filed for both of those03:23
altendkytatertots: agreed.  shouldn't there be some command line program i can run to query what the system thinks is available?  i tend to prefer working with and sharing that over looking in pages in the kde system settings03:24
tatertotsaltendky: if selecting them has no effect you might try from LiveCD/LiveUSB first before filing some bug reports03:24
altendkywell, when it's not working i prefer cli :]03:24
altendkytatertots: fwiw, asking for screenshots and logs comes across to me as 'interested in helping me out', not 'aggressive'.  i can share my logs though as mentioned, nothing shows up in them when the display is connected.  though sure, there may be a clue elsewhere in them.03:26
tatertotsaltendky: you say it "used to work" so some system changes have likely impacted this functionality..that's why testing from LiveCD/LiveUSB is useful03:26
=== PowerTower_121 is now known as PowerTower_120
altendkytatertots: i've had the laptop for a few weeks.  mostly the only stuff i've done with it is attempting to debug/fix these issues.  i've kept doing my daily work from my old laptop.  it didn't work.  i messed around a bunch.  it did work for a bit but at least one of the other two issues were not fixed.  so basically at some point my flailing was sufficient to get it working but i had no particular idea why.  in other03:29
altendkyefforts i have since reinstalled a few times.  anyways, i'll try from a live usb.  any preference which one?  18.04 for lts?  19.10?  ubuntu vs. kubuntu?03:29
tatertotsaltendky: your problems right now are on KDE so boot any "other" ubuntu besides KDE Livecd/LiveUSB and test from LiveCD/LiveUSB03:30
altendkytatertots: i've already got ubuntu 18.04.3.  do all the updates and third party software etc?  started downloading ubuntu 19.10 as well.03:32
altendkyerr, sorry, was thinking installation not live.  anyways, booting it now03:34
altendkytatertots: nothing new, in fact less.  no apparent response to plugging in or unplugging the hdmi or pressing Fn+F7.03:37
tatertotsaltendky: ok boot back to your installed KDE thingy and lets gather some diag and you can file a bug report03:38
tatertotsaltendky: leave external display attached / connected03:39

altendkyryuo: i've had the laptop maybe three weeks.  it's been available a few months.03:40
altendkylenovo thinkpad p1 gen 203:40
ryuoaltendky: has anyone asked you to check what xrandr reports when you plug in HDMI?03:41
altendkyryuo: not in this help session.  just xrandr --query?  or...03:41
altendkyryuo: i've only been noticing my e-DP internal display03:41
ryuoaltendky: just xrandr. it should report other outputs as well.03:41
ryuoit's possible other screens are detected but not used automatically.03:42
tatertotsaltendky: back in KDE?03:43
altendkyryuo: you would think it would...  https://termbin.com/3urg03:43
altendkytatertots: yes03:43

tatertotsaltendky: sudo apt install sosreport inxi03:43
tatertotsaltendky: when done just say so03:43
altendkyryuo: that was the output of xrandr | nc termbin.com 999903:43
ryuoit's not even detected...03:43
ryuoit's as if the port is non-existant.03:44
ryuoi wonder if it's a BIOS bug.03:44
JanCif it's a laptop, the firmware might switch it off in some cases03:44
altendkyryuo: i think another should be detected as well for my dp i can get from a usb-c dongle.  mm, i'll plug that in03:44
ryuoa BIOS update would be advisable if they're available.03:45
JanCtry using the special keys to switch outputs03:45
altendkyJanC: see above for the f7 stuff.03:45
JanCand maybe have a look at the firmware configuration options03:45
altendkyi did do a bios update recently, checking again.  for all i know the bios update is what _broke_ this since when it worked briefly03:45
JanCthat's another option  :-/03:46
altendkyi was pretty much just flailing at the point where it worked03:46
altendkyand something else was still broken03:46
oerheksmaybe a help https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_ThinkPad_P103:47
altendkydouble checking for a new update, then i'll look through the bios, then maybe do a reset03:47
JanCdoes it work when you boot with HDMI plugged in at boot?03:47
altendkyJanC: no03:48
altendkyoerheks: maybe i should read more there.  it's reported to be very similar to the x1 extreme gen 2 to the point arch just links to that page https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_ThinkPad_P1_(Gen_2)03:49
altendkyhmm, if the hdmi is connected to the nvidia then maybe i should try the 440 drivers...03:49
altendkyi did have those on at one point in the past03:49
JanCah, yes, if it has dual GPUs03:50
oerheksahhhh03:50
JanCyou'll need double drivers...03:50

altendkyoerheks: set it to 10 seconds with no apparent effect (i didn't notice a 10s delay either...).  trying an actual power down03:54
altendkyyeah, looks like it's 10 before the bios screen.  not during it.  but no apparent change (including xrandr)03:56

swift110hey06:18
altendkylotuspsychje: now that i've noticed lspci lacks any indication of the nvidia card...  i'm just now booting to reinstall kubuntu and see if lspci shows the nvidia on a fresh install.  i've been flailing less on this install, but still some06:19
altendkyswift110: hiya06:19
lotuspsychjealtendky: thats why i reccomended to keep updating your bug comments, so you can fallback where you had it working, wich kernel, driver version etc06:19
altendkylotuspsychje: i looked back in my slack messages to a coworker and it was working nov 12th...  but sure, it would be good to have had better notes.  i often start at tasks in a 'this ought to be quick so let's just try a few of these forum suggestions' way and that's what it was at that point.  along with the fact i was kinda clueless as to how it all worked.  i'm slightly less clueless and now trying to tackle only06:21
altendkythat one issue now that the other two are identified down to the commits.06:21
lotuspsychjealtendky: whats your bug ID on that hdmi issue again?06:22
swift110how r u altendky06:23
altendkylotuspsychje: no bug id on it yet.  (just in case that was not a rhetorical question)  if it doesn't work on a clean install then perhaps it's reasonable to report it.  can't say that reporting it against whatever mess i made while exploring the other issues seems kind.06:23
altendkyswift110: i should be asleep, but so it goes.06:23

altendkylotuspsychje: do you want me to not reinstall?  got distracted but i'm now at the partitioning screen.  or, shall we go clean and see from there.  this evening i had tried 4.15 oem, 5.0 oem sp1, 5.3.0-23-generic, mainline 5.3.13, and my 5.4 custom.  maybe missed full coverage over the kernels but tried with both nvidia 435 and 440.  chipset is...  looking for T2000 max-q?  or there's something like tu117 (or such, i06:39

lotuspsychjealtendky: in your case, i dont think you messed up your system too much you need to reinstall?06:43
altendkylotuspsychje: alrighty, so clean install with updates and third party then `sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall`?06:43
altendkylotuspsychje: shouldn't the card show in lspci?06:43

lotuspsychjealtendky: can you pastebin: sudo lshw -C video && uname -a && nvidia-smi06:45
altendkyi was planning on reinstalling anyways once i got through figuring these issues out so it's not like this uses more than a few minutes waiting for the installation.  and it's quick ssd's etc so...06:45

altendkylotuspsychje: `[    0.894460] pci 0000:01:00.0: can't claim BAR 6 [mem 0xfff80000-0xffffffff pref]: no compatible bridge window`  and `[    3.920756] pci 0000:01:00.0: Removing from iommu group 1`  look mildly interesting, without me actually understanding them07:01
lotuspsychjealtendky: bumblebeed[1964]: [   65.223808] [ERROR]No discrete video card found, quitting07:03
lotuspsychjealtendky: did you install something weird on there?07:03
altendkylotuspsychje: i didn't think i'd done anything weird enough to remove the card from the pci bus...07:04
lotuspsychjealtendky: wich nvidia chipset is that please?07:05
altendkylotuspsychje: is TU117 what you are looking for?07:05
altendkylotuspsychje: or maybe even tu117glm https://devicehunt.com/view/type/pci/vendor/10DE/device/1FB807:07
lotuspsychjeso Quadro T1000 Mobile right?07:07
altendkylotuspsychje: what i've heard is T2000 max-q (which afaik is 'mobile')07:08
lotuspsychjealtendky: your lenovo surely seem to make a lot of issues in your logs..07:09
altendkylotuspsychje: i wouldn't know which things are really bad vs. just noise07:10
altendkylotuspsychje: other than what i quoted above where i'm having an issue with a thing and there are also suspicious messages related particularly to it.  but i can still only say suspicious at this point07:11
lotuspsychjealtendky: in this stage, sounds to me like your nvidia card doesnt get active for some reason due that bumblebee method07:11
altendkylotuspsychje: you think bumblebee is causing it to not show up in lspci?07:12
lotuspsychjealtendky: the reccomended way, is your system picking the best nvidia driver for your card, using nvidia-prime07:12
lotuspsychjealtendky: i also wonder how the compare on your system would be, gnome vs kde07:13
lotuspsychjealtendky: try to switch driver versions until you get it straight07:14
altendkylotuspsychje: i feel like the whiny asker-of-help here but wouldn't a fresh install either 1) make the lspci oddity go away or 2) make it debuggable in a less uncertain environment?07:14
altendkylotuspsychje: change driver versions for a device that doesn't show on the pci bus?  am i wrong to think it should be present on the pci bus?07:15
lotuspsychjealtendky: your nvidia worked before on this system right?07:16
lotuspsychjealtendky: and you are the boss of your system, clean install as you wish07:17
Phruisn lm-sensors what would in6 be?07:17
altendkylotuspsychje: at some point it showed up in lspci.  iirc i ran linux at some point with the bios set to dedicate graphics only.  i've seen nvidia as an entry in lspci -k.07:17
altendkylotuspsychje: yeah, i know i can just reinstall.  but you seem to think that's a bad diagnostic step and i'm trying to understand why.07:18
DarkTrick_(A) lotuspsychje, thank you for the pointer!07:18
lotuspsychjewelcome DarkTrick_07:18
lotuspsychjealtendky: exactly, im also curious why your nvidia gets blocked07:19
altendkylotuspsychje: ok, so even if a fresh install made the card show up in lspci you would still be interested in spending time figuring it out?  fair enough.  best guess i've got is i did install something that's meant to manage the two cards and is set to totally power off the card at boot.07:20
altendkylotuspsychje: i've got a few things installed at the moment which i could imagine being in conflict https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/v5wknV8n4M/07:21
lotuspsychjealtendky: that was my suspect..bumblebee is an outdated method, please purge that07:22
altendkylotuspsychje: iirc i installed that after noting the lspci oddity.  removing now07:23
lotuspsychjealtendky: the nvidia driver alone, should handle your card, not all those other programs you installed07:24
altendkylotuspsychje: the other programs are for switching what card to use, yes?  you say the nvidia driver now does that itself?07:24
lotuspsychjealtendky: you dont need those, when the system installs your nvidia driver, it automatic pulls nvidia-prime wich is able to switch intel vs nvidia with nvidia-settings07:25
lotuspsychjeso just pick a version from: ubuntu-drivers list07:26

lotuspsychjealtendky: we need to findout why your nvidia gets blocked07:33
altendkylotuspsychje: ubuntu 19.10 showed the nvidia in lspci.  kubuntu 19.10 just hung on lspci07:33
altendky^^ about live boots07:33
altendkylotuspsychje: so given that windows and ubuntu 19.10 live show the nvidia i guessed (sure, it's certainly not proof) that it was something in my kubuntu install that was causing it to not be 'present'07:34
whoareUafter lanuching tor in cosole, hint "connections died in state connect()ing with SSL state (No SSL object)" , what's matter with this07:34
lotuspsychjealtendky: yeah, or its a kubuntu block, or due your many prime software you installe07:35
altendkylotuspsychje: yeah, 'many prime i installed' would fit in my mind as something in my kubuntu install07:35
altendkyi'll power off instead of just rebooting07:36
altendkylotuspsychje: no better after powering off https://termbin.com/tjm707:38
altendkylotuspsychje: thanks again for all the help.  i purged the bumblebee/bbswitch packages and my not-from-ubuntu-repos kernels but no change yet.  actually walking away now to go to bed.08:01

altendkylotuspsychje: yeah, the kubuntu live is a mess...  i've had gui hangs, lspci and lshw hang.  lshw specifically at the `PCI (sysfs)` point.  piles of `SCHED_ERROR` at the 'end' of journalctl http://termbin.com/p0yf.  306 hits for (error|warning|fail).15:34
lotuspsychjealtendky: well think we cant generalize things, as we have volunteers that have kde working like a charm, so maybe kde + lenovo combo?15:35

nmzmnot_null, cluelessperson_, ok, thanks for trying to help with the ports, guys. The reason why I can't do that is my internet provider is blocking all ports by default.15:36
lotuspsychjealtendky: that doesnt sound too great: nouveau 0000:01:00.0: DRM: unknown connector type 4815:36
altendkylotuspsychje: the regular boot had `Dec 01 01:47:42 p1 kernel: pci 0000:01:00.0: Removing from iommu group 1` and the live does not.  again, i don't know the meaning behind these messages but when something is being 'removed' and i later am unable to see it somewhere i expect it...15:39

lotuspsychjenouveau 0000:01:00.0: fifo: SCHED_ERROR 20 [] yikes..15:40
altendkylotuspsychje: is shipping 'a developer' a problem laptop a thing that's done?15:41
lotuspsychjealtendky: in your case i would really try to do things systematicly, start from the start15:42
altendkylotuspsychje: at this point, what is the start?  beginning of live boot journalctl?15:43
lotuspsychjealtendky: like reset bios to defaults, update bios/firmware, test livecd and test LTS ubuntu15:43
lotuspsychjealtendky: so much errors right on a fresh live..is just too much15:43
altendkylotuspsychje: this is the live boot of kubuntu15:43
lotuspsychjeyeah you said15:43
altendkylotuspsychje: alrighty.  install 18.04.3 ubuntu  with updates and third party software and check the journalctl from the beginning.  yes?15:44
lotuspsychjealtendky: yes, lets try that15:44
altendkylotuspsychje: i've been reusing (formatting each time) my lvm setup with /, /home, /boot, and /tmp.  in case that is of any concern to you?15:48
lotuspsychjealtendky: i dont think i saw much problems around lvm, but testing is always nice when doing it vanilla15:49
altendkylotuspsychje: leave it with windows optimized defaults? https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/6jxAOgAU/IMG_20191201_104827.jpg15:49
lotuspsychjealtendky: do you dualboot?15:50
altendkylotuspsychje: i keep the windows partition around and occasionally do, yes.  mostly i use windows via vm though.15:50
altendkylotuspsychje: i'm comfortable with whatever for testing purposes though15:50
lotuspsychjealtendky: my preference for ubuntu single boot is legacy15:50
altendkylotuspsychje: so leave it with os optimized defaults, reset, then go change uefi/legacy to legacy?15:52
lotuspsychjealtendky: yes optimized and legacy15:53
altendkylotuspsychje: legacy is 'Unselectable for Secure Boot' so i'll disable secure boot.  I'm also typing up notes with images at https://github.com/altendky/issues/issues/116:13
WaloHi everyone, how can I quit this annoying sound in the greeter screen? That horrible tiny drums...16:16
altendkylotuspsychje: here are the notes and images from the bios reset.  https://github.com/altendky/issues/issues/1#issuecomment-56012821916:32
altendkylotuspsychje: i've got a bunch of pictures of the install that i'll post to the issue, but in short, at the end it is failing to execute grub-install for either /dev/nvme0n1 or /dev/nvme1n1.  i'm guessing that legacy doesn't support nvme drives maybe?16:45
jeremy31altendky: Are they GPT formatted drives?16:53
altendkyjeremy31: it's been a few weeks since i did the lvm partitioning.  how would you like me to check?  i am still in the installed but switched to a terminal16:55
jeremy31altendky: URL for> sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 999916:56
altendkyjeremy31: with |& instead i get http://termbin.com/sq2r16:58
altendkyjeremy31: and with I<enter> http://termbin.com/qb6s16:58
jeremy31altendky: paste results at paste.ubuntu.com for> sudo parted -l #press i to ignore the warning16:59
altendkyjeremy31: i think above covers that?  lists gpt for both nvme drives.  interestingly one intel and one samsung (both lenovo-installed)17:00
jeremy31altendky: looks like it is setup for EFI boot, to change it you would need to make room at the begining of /dev/nvme0n1 for a 1MB partition with bios_grub flag17:02
reifkHello guys, I was wondering why sometimes when a command is stuck on output, it helps to hit enter to flush the rest of the output. Silly question perhaps but I'm not sure why this happens.17:04
ioriareifk, does it happen all the time ?17:06
jeremy31altendky: I moved my EFI system partition to make room for the /dev/sda3 at the beginning of my drive https://imgur.com/a/NPoiVen17:06
reifkioria Not all the time for everything but for certain commands it happens all the time17:06
ioriareifk, like what commands ?17:07
reifkYeah, the reason I didn't give an example is because it is an in-company tool I'm using right now. Can't think of anything else right now. I understand it probably depends on the tool.17:08
ioriareifk, what terminal is in use ?17:09
reifkcmd17:09
ioriareifk, i mean, gnome-terminal, lxterminal, fxce-terminal.... what ?17:11
altendkyjeremy31: (sorry for disappearing, kids needed some attention) setting the bios to legacy was done at lotuspsychje's request (they have been helping me a lot with various issues).  i don't know if we want to just go back to uefy (actual bios defaults) and continue from there.  lunch time now so i'll come back to this later.  thanks and sorry.17:35

altendkylotuspsychje: had some other goings on for awhile...  records at https://github.com/altendky/issues/issues/1  the legacy route seemed to be growing to more and more deviation from 'defaults' so i figured i'd try it with uefi.  but...  since you are back on the case i'm happy to reset to legacy and continue down that path if you prefer.18:24
altendkyjust finished the installation and reboot (pictures to be added to the issue)18:25

noudleon one of my ubuntu vm's lvm seems to be only using 4 gb of the 32gb that are available, i try to extend that now.18:39
noudleis it really needed to create a new partition to do so? (ive read that one some sites)18:39

altendkynoudle: i _think_ i did expand an existing partition and then lvm on it.  _but_ i am _not_ knowledgeable in this area either.18:52
altendkyAdeman: you can pick for your correct release (maybe not eoan) but it appears that systemd would provide resolvectl https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?searchon=contents&keywords=resolvectl&mode=exactfilename&suite=eoan&arch=any18:53
compdocAdeman, theres a directory named resolvectl, and  resolv.conf is a link to another file18:54
lotuspsychje_altendky: purge and try installing 43018:56
noudlealtendky: hmm.. im also not sure about the lvm tool(s) output(s). i have /dev/sda1-3 and the 3 one has 31G "Linux filesystem"; pvs says /dev/sda3 is lvm2 with <31G; vgs says "ubuntu-vg" has <31G size and <27G free (there are the 4GB used that i actually have as available disk space); lvs says "ubuntu-lv" has 4G size.18:56
noudlealtendky: now im not sure what i should do, /dev/sda3 is a partition that uses almost the full available drive18:56

Obsdarka question19:46
Obsdarkwhat is the difference between cp -a and cp r?19:46
Obsdarki read the docs, one said is for archives, the other for recursive19:47
Obsdarkbut can any of you elaborate a little bit more?19:47
gryObsdark: the '-a' also includes -D and '--preserve=all'19:47
gryObsdark: sorry, -d19:48
Obsdarkits better than -r then?19:48
gryObsdark: and -d means  --no-dereference --preserve=links19:48
gryObsdark: '--preserve=all' overrides '--preserve=links'19:48
gryObsdark: so you are left with extra --no-dereference and --preserve=all19:49
Obsdarkis more complete then gry?19:49
oerheks1one could use both, -a and -r19:49
gryoerheks1: -a already includes -r19:49

gst568923Hi guys, I have an urgent problem with my Dell Studio 1537 laptop. Using xubuntu 19.10 normally, at some point the monitor shows that it is losing pieces, so I restarted the pc and also the bios screen (which is updated to the latest version available) not seen fluid. If I start ubuntu with the parameter in the kernel radeon.nomodeset = 0 it starts20:18
gst568923up correctly but the resolution of the monitor is too low, while if I start ubuntu without that parameter, in the loading phase of the display manager the screen remains black. Starting the diagnostics in the bios I found these errors: error code 2000-0321 LCD EDID - unable to access EDID EEPROM. I would like your help step by step to avoid making20:18

* extor has an ubuntu partition with UEFI boot and android studio on a laptop about to be reformatted and wants to back it up to an external drive. What is the most efficient way, clonezilla? simple tar? Something else?20:52
ducasseclonezilla would work, and please don't use /me in here20:55
extorAnd it would back up the mysterious uefi keys too I take it20:57
ducasseif you just clone the raw drive, yes20:58
extorId be cloning a partition only...and afaik the clonezilla app does rsync + tar + gz20:58
extorNot sure though20:58
ActionParsnipHello to all20:58
ducassethere are no keys to worry about20:58
extorhonestly I like dealing with the nuts and bolts if possible20:58
extorwell my ubuntu install has an entry in my uefi bootup20:59
ducasseyou could use dd, of course20:59
extordd copies empty spaces20:59
ducassethat you will need to handle with efibootmgr20:59
ActionParsnipDoes the system have a lot of customization outside of the desktop setup etc etc?21:01
extorAlso, are there any ubuntu live CD projects with images that have the sophistication of knoppix; but the binaries of ubuntu?21:01
ActionParsnipI'm assuming a desktop OS21:01
ducassei think ddrescue can be told not to, but not sure21:01
ActionParsnipI wouldn't say Knoppix was sophisticated....21:02
extorI think it just compresses emptiness, but doesnt do filesystem level backups since it is hardware level21:02
extorErr knoppix has some snazzy features like copy2ram21:02
gst568923๐Ÿ–™ How can I find the LDVS correct bus with i2c-tools?21:02
oerheks1all ubuntu isos give a live session, except mini and server21:02
extorAnd the ability to install apps via apt, and then create an image WITH THOSE INSTALLED APPS for the next live CD boot21:03
oerheks1and there is server-live for that.21:03
extorright but I wanted a live session that had pre installed apps specifically android studio but possibly more21:03
ActionParsnipExtor: do you have a lot of customisation outside of $HOME on the system you want to clone?21:03
oerheks1err, no21:03
oerheks1install android studio in live, would be a disaster, unless you have plenty ram21:04
ActionParsnipExtor: you can remaster the install media and add what you want21:04
oerheks1but make one custom ? https://askubuntu.com/questions/741753/how-to-use-cubic-to-create-a-custom-ubuntu-live-cd-image21:04
ActionParsnipOerheks1: indeed21:04
extorActionParsnip, nope21:05
ActionParsnipExtor: then why clone? Just do a new install21:05
oerheks1snap install .. https://snapcraft.io/android-studio21:05
extorno customizations except apps like android studio which are very tedious to install21:05
extorandroid studio takes gigs and gigs of downloads21:05
ActionParsnipExtor: then make a way to install easily like a script or similar. I have one I run on new installs and it sets the whole lot up. Wallpaper, installs apps, sets up my backups and so on.21:06
extorAnd when it breaks...my goodness. So it's either a live distro with android studio or a setup where I keep clonezilla'ing a partition with ubuntu and android studio21:06
oerheks1just a 700 mb snap. get over it21:06
ActionParsnipExtor: then put it on a USB drive or local file server....21:06
extor700mb? what????21:07
ActionParsnipExtor: then you aren't downloading from the Web each time21:07
extorJust the emulator alone is one gig worth of downloads21:07
ActionParsnipExtor: too obvious?21:07
extorI'm sorry, what is obvious21:07
ActionParsnipExtor: download the file once. Make a copy to a file server on the LAN or USB. Saves having to download from the Web all the time21:08
extorOk the problem is that android studio keeps wanting to update via the web each time it starts21:09
extorand it is usually hundreds of megs at a time21:09
ActionParsnipExtor: I'd imagine there's an option to stop that21:09
oerheks1that is not a problem, a feature.21:09
extorAlso another thing is I am used to running knoppix sessions for the sake of security21:10
ActionParsnipExtor: seem you get the update offered. It's not mandatory21:10
extorsince in each bootup had you corrupted your install with web based malware, the new bootup would be clean21:10
extorWhich was another reason I liked the live CD option21:10
ActionParsnipExtor: what Web based malware exactly, please?21:11
extorActionParsnip, there is plenty of stuff you can pick up for example by choosing to have updates sent from certain sites. Also there are exploits for firefox right left and center21:11
ActionParsnipExtor: the user cannot change anything outside of $HOME without sufficient access so unless you are running your Web browser as root (in which case you deserve what you get). Then the only issue will be in the user's home folders.21:12
oerheks1interesting, my live session updates android studio , why would we stop that?21:12
extorI think there was a notification bug in firefox that had some nasty exploits, and a bookmark one I dont keep track but with knoppix its nice to boot to a KNOWN clean install each time.21:12
ActionParsnipExtor: so no. It's not a problem. I also said 'exactly' what issues not some vague nonsense21:13
extorActionParsnip, ok thats a relief but still, it's not desirable to have one's userlevel environment compromized either and its nice to be able to reboot and kill off those unknowns21:13
ActionParsnipExtor: then login as guest each time. The user's home is in tempfs and wiped at reboot21:14
extorActionParsnip, it is kind of hard to look into the future and say exactly what since these bugs and exploits are unknown until they start spreading like wildfire21:14
ActionParsnipWhich kills your unknowns21:14
extorActionParsnip, that went over my head. Although what if I ran a vmware session inside ubuntu and ssh -X to a browser in my vmware session of ubuntu? Is that safe or will ssh -X also have some loose ends?21:15
ActionParsnipExtor: I'm suspecting you don't know what you are talking about and just being paranoid for the sake of being paranoid or to try and seem cool. One or the other21:15
extorI had no idea there was a username called guest.21:16
ActionParsnipExtor: ssh is secured end to end. You can use the HTTPS/HTML5 Web UI and mange your systems securely.21:16
extorActionParsnip, it's hard to know what you are talking about when you're specifically trying to talk about that which you do not yet know of because it is still "in the wild".21:16
ActionParsnipExtor: with that mindset you wouldn't go online21:17
extorwait, you missed my point. When I ssh -X to a virtual machine the ssh tunnel is secure but my concern was running the binary locally. How sandboxed is the remote binary that is run locally was my query21:17
ActionParsnipExtor: if you run a binary with ssh -X the application runs on the remote side. Only the display is shown on the client. The 'sandboxing' will be done on the server side if any. You can use docker for this to isolate the running application and prevent it from going onto the system it's running on21:19
ActionParsnipExtor: or just use docker locally21:19
DarkByD3signHi all, I have a dual boot setup with Win10 and Ubuntu but on seperate drives, GRUB2 is the drive selector, if I want to delete the Ubuntu setup and use the drive can I just reformat the disc or will Grub mess up my Windows install?21:19
extorOh docker, is that some sort of a new virtual machine subsystem? I've heard of it.21:20
ActionParsnipDarkByD3sign: you'll need to reinstate the Windows boot loader if you delete GRUB. Your Windows install won't be touched21:20
ActionParsnipExtor: you can isolate individual applications. Have a look. It's exciting stuff21:21
extorDarkByD3sign, don't you have a UEFI boot?21:21
extork will do21:21
DarkByD3signActionParsnip: Will the Windows bootlooder just kick back in?21:21
DarkByD3signextor: yes.21:21

ActionParsnipTML: did you set the docker port to go from outside to inside?21:34
TMLActionParsnip: I did - which makes sense, given that one of the legs can actually reach into the container21:34
TMLBut here's a screenshot from portainer showing it mapped: https://imgur.com/a/A66TkZH21:35
ActionParsnipTML: digitalocean :-)21:35
d0tsun7hey anyone into virtual machines?21:36
d0tsun7i have a kvm/qemu host/guest issue where my host loses its display. it just goes black.21:36
d0tsun7upgrading to qemu 3 to qemu 4 didnt solve it21:36
TMLActionParsnip: Nope, no digitalocean involved21:36
d0tsun7Linux myhost 5.2.4-050204-generic #201907280731 SMP Sun Jul 28 07:33:45 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux21:37
TMLThe actual IP addresses have been changed to prevent DOS if this paste gets crawled21:37
ActionParsnipTML: just looks like the font. Can Server B connect to localhoat on port 9000?21:37
TMLActionParsnip: Yes, server can connect to localhost on 900021:37
ActionParsnipTML: are there servers on the same subnet you can try connect from?21:38
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: what makes it 'lose its display'?21:39
TMLActionParsnip: I have tried connecting to Server on both NetworkA and NetworkB from: AWS, Azure, Google Fiber, Comcast, and vultr; in all cases, going to NetworkA works, going to NetworkB stops in the middle of a chain21:40
ActionParsnipTML: and you say the traffic hits the firewall OK?21:40
TMLActionParsnip: Yep - you can see the iptables trace logs of the traffic getting into the box21:41
TMLit just stops in middle of rule processing, with no DROP rules hit21:41
ActionParsnipTML: hmm. So it's getting through the docker config to the actual firewall....21:42
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: im unsure21:42
d0tsun7im running a dmesg -w >> file.txt right now to catch whatever happens for the next time21:42
ActionParsnipTML: I think there is #iptables as a channel.21:42
TMLLooks like it - thanks!21:43
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: im unsure what triggers it currently21:43
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: is it a server install or is there a desktop on the system?21:44
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: it'a desktop system. ryzen 7 2700x host system running ubunt 19.10 qemu 4 libvirt 5.4 and the guest is windows 10.21:45
d0tsun7ArctionParsnip: host machine GeForce GTX 750 guest machine GeForce GTX 107021:46
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: tried turning off the screensaver / power stuff in Windows 10?21:47
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: screen saver is off on the guest win10 machine, and power is set to performance. the guest machine maintains its display. it's when i click back to HDMI1 on the same monitor when the host display goes black.21:48
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: i could put the host machine to a stand alone monitor and have it running and see when it blacks out i suppose. hoping maybe dmesg -w >> output will catch some useful information for me the next time it happens21:48
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: ahh I see. If you turn the monitor off and on does it work. OK?21:48
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: i have. i have also removed the DVI cable and plugged it into another monitor after it blacks out, and I still get nothing21:49
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: are you using the proprietary video driver?21:50
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: any logs you recommend taking a peak at21:50
d0tsun7ActionParnip: yeah21:50
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: /var/log/Xorg.0.log maybe21:50
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: does that log refresh on each boot21:51
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: if you press CTRL + ALT + F1 do you see TTY1? If so, press CTRL + ALT + F7 and it may drop the desktop back in21:51
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: yes each boot21:52
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: how can i save the previous boot record so i can maybe see when it happens21:52
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: cp it to your home folder but I think the last file is kept21:53
ActionParsnipD0tsun7: so you'll have Xorg.1.log maybe21:53
d0tsun7ActionParsnip: ok21:55

talonosHello. My Ubuntu is woefully out of date: I'm running 7.5. apt-get update and upgrade aren't working; it's throwing 404s. I'm assuming that's because it's so old that its package managers are not supported anymore. What should I do to update from here?22:01
oerheks1it seems the lates, according to github https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/zsh-antigen22:02

d0tsun7why is that?22:18
d0tsun7i installed vim-gtk22:18
Segajaoerheks1: any idea? I would hate to have to install antigen by hand22:19
d0tsun7i can copy/paste within vim, but i can't get it to paste out to like my browser22:19
fructosed0tsun7: Might want to add this to your .vimrc: set clipboard=unnamedplus22:21
d0tsun7fructose: thank you22:22
fructosed0tsun7: There is a #vim channel too22:22
d0tsun7fructose: oh sweet hanks22:23
leftyfbd0tsun7: also, don't use vim-gtk.22:24
d0tsun7leftyfb: oh why is that? i just installed it-- should i remove?22:25
leftyfbd0tsun7: just use vim. What possible reason do you have to run vim as it's own clickable application?22:26
d0tsun7leftyfb: good call, i don't intend to. someone mentioned installing gim-gtk installed something to allow copy pasting outside of vim so i gave it a shot. ill remove it and append my .vimrc file with twhat fructose mentioned22:26
d0tsun7uhhhmazing. works now fructose, thank you22:27
leftyfbd0tsun7: if you just use vim in a terminal, you shouldn't need anything extra to copy/paste inside or outside of vim22:27
fructosed0tsun7: You might need vim-gtk actually22:27
leftyfbfructose: They do not need vim-gtk22:28
d0tsun7fructose: i read that on a bug report as well22:28
d0tsun7ill remove it and let you know if i can still yank properly22:28
d0tsun7uno momento22:28
leftyfbd0tsun7: yank is not meant to pull things into your gtk clipboard to be pastable outside of vim. That's what CTRL+shift+C is for.22:29
fructoseleftyfb: Yet some of us like it to do that.22:29
d0tsun7leftyfb: for whatever reason CTRL+SHIFT+C wasnt working for me iether22:29
leftyfbd0tsun7: try it in vim in a terminal. Not vim-gtk22:30
d0tsun7leftyfb: im just happy to have a way to get stuff out of vim. if yank is my solution im okay with that for now22:30
leftyfbd0tsun7: that is what we should be troubleshooting.22:30

corshmockThanks ubottu:  I thought I already registered today?22:32
d0tsun7going to reinstall vim-gtk and confirm it works again22:32
leftyfbd0tsun7: you should really take this one step at a time. We should be trying vim in a terminal and making sure CTRL+shift+C works first22:32
leftyfbcorshmock: your question is offtopic. See #ubuntu-offtopic.22:33
d0tsun7leftyfb: i tried that many times before installing vim-gtk and appending my vimrc with what fructose recommended. CTRL+SHIFT+C did not work for me unfortunately, i'm unsure why. any recommendations?22:33
Segajaoerheks1: still there? there are lines missing in my installation22:33
corshmockMy apologies leftyfb22:33
leftyfbd0tsun7: ok, remove vim-gtk and lets troubleshoot that22:33
leftyfbd0tsun7: also, undo anything fructose told you. You should not need any special configs for CTRL+shift+C to work22:34
d0tsun7leftyfb fructose: reinstalled vim-gtk and yanking works again outside of vim. so that's confirmed.22:34
leftyfbd0tsun7: if CTRL+shift+C is not working for you in a terminal, then you have other problems that should be addressed22:35
d0tsun7in terminal it works fine. but not in vim.22:35
Segajaafter line 84 the file differs between my installation and upstream22:35
d0tsun7leftyfb: ctrl+shift+d does work in terminal, but does not work in vim for me22:35

leftyfbd0tsun7: also, what version of ubuntu are you running?22:37
Segajaanyone else any idea why the zsh-antigen installation is not working?22:38
akkI missed the beginning of this ... does ctrl-shift-c copy to Clipboard in some terminals? In urxvt it's doing something weird that briefly shows a menu then clears the screen.22:38
ActionParsnipSegaja: use apt to install it and pastebin the command and its output. Also add the output of: lsb_release -a22:39
d0tsun7hey leftyfb i love the help but i think i'm going to go for the yanking option for now just because i have to get hecka work done. hopefully this is not rude of me. i really appreciate you willing to help. do you frequent here often?22:39
akkProbably related to the mysterious "iso14755" thing that I keep trying unsuccessfully to turn off.22:39

d0tsun7fructose: thanks for the stopgap for now :) i can jam and get my work done now22:40

Segajahttps://pastebin.com/wJJ39NN022:40
d0tsun7leftyfb: to confirm, you saying CTRL+SHIFT+C should absolutely be copying content from vim and allowing it to paste outside of vim22:41
SegajaActionParsnip: ^22:41
leftyfbd0tsun7: correct. If it's not, something is not right and should be addressed22:41
ActionParsnipSegaja: it's installed fine then....22:42

d0tsun7appreciate all your guy's help22:45
ActionParsnipSegaja: if it works then please report a bug stating that the larger file makes it OK22:45
Segajathe point is that on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/zsh-antigen/2.2.3-1 the file looks right22:46
adrian_1908d0tsun7: yeah, do let me keep you from your other stuff now. Also the key succession   "+y   should work to copy to the clipboard, if you can get used to that.22:46
adrian_1908*don't22:46
Segajai'm starting to think this might be a packagin issue on leaseweb mirrors22:46
d0tsun7adrian_1908: appreciate that, ty22:46
ActionParsnipSegaja: possibly an oversight in packaging22:47
ActionParsnipSegaja: does the package from the main Ubuntu repository have the same MD5 as the one from leaseweb?22:47
Segajahow can i find the md5 sum of the installed package22:48

SegajaI don't have the source file of the package. what is the apt cache directory?22:49
pfirsichhello everyone. I have currently installed Ubuntu on /dev/sdc, but I think that I am booting it from an EFI partition on /dev/sda (sda2, because that's where /boot/efi is mounted). fdisk -l does not show an EFI partition on sdc. If I wanted to boot Ubuntu from an EFI partition on sdc instead, I would have to resize a partition (preferably the first22:50
pfirsichone?) and create a new partition of about 200MB, correct? I did mess all this up a couple of times and I want to make sure now, because I do not understand anything really.22:50

Segajastill would be nice to have a working version in ubuntu 18.0422:54
pfirsichMy final goal is to have both Windows and Ubuntu installed and have them both show up in GRUB. My understanding is that I have to install ubuntu in EFI mode (which it already is), but to be able to boot it after I installed windows (on /dev/sda), I want the EFI partition Ubuntu is booted from to be on the same drive as Ubuntu (/dev/sdc). Does that22:56
pfirsichmake sense?22:56
ActionParsnipSegaja: grab the deb from the official repos and MD5 test it, then the one from your source. Are they different?22:56
pfirsichwell, then here goes messing up my whole system again..22:59
Segajaok, at least when i take the latest release it works.22:59
SegajaActionParsnip: let me check. I just have to figure out how to get the sources22:59
ActionParsnipSegaja: you can wget the files to $HOME easily.23:00
jayjothe number one problem i have maintaining ec2 instances is disk usage. I'm typically running docker containers, but it happens otherwise as well, and the disk fills up and I have to intervene, most of the time just requiring a new instance. What's the best way to monitor this disk usage? is `du` and `df` the best tools?23:00
SegajaActionParsnip: how can i get the url for download?23:01
ActionParsnipSegaja: you have the one from your pastebin for the one from leaseweb and packages.ubuntu.com can give a download for the official file.23:02
SegajaActionParsnip: https://pastebin.com/yJpuFK5623:04
ActionParsnipSegaja: those aren't the deb files.....23:05
ActionParsnipSegaja: we are seeing if the official deb and the one from leaseweb are identical. We aren't checking consistency here23:06
SegajaActionParsnip: I'm sorry to say I'm either to stupid or too tired right now to download the source file in order to check the md5sum23:10
ActionParsnipSegaja: cd /tmp; wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/z/zsh-antigen/zsh-antigen_2.2.3-1_all.deb; md5sum ./zsh-antigen_2.2.3โ€”1_all.deb23:11
ActionParsnipSegaja: repeat with the leaseweb file. Are they the same?23:13
Segajayes they are23:14
pfirsichIf I resize /dev/sdc1 and add a new partition at the front to use as an EFI partiton, will I likely mess up my system, because sdc1 is now a different partition?23:14
Segajaf1e6332bbe830f22481d089523c3ecc8 in both cases23:14
ActionParsnipSegaja: OK cool so it's not a weird package on the source you are using23:16
Segajaso http://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/z/zsh-antigen/zsh-antigen_2.2.3-1_all.deb and http://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/z/zsh-antigen/zsh-antigen_2.2.3-2_all.deb are broken, but http://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/z/zsh-antigen/zsh-antigen_2.2.3.orig.tar.gz is ok23:17
Segajaso the sources look good but packagin did bogus?23:17
pfirsichI hope my questions make sense and are understandable. Is there maybe a better place to get support?23:17
ActionParsnipSegaja: all I can suggest is replacing the file after copying the current one out, see if it's OK. You might fix a bug :-)23:20
Bashing-ompfirsich: Yer good here :). Be aware that altering the Partition will also alter the assigned UUID. Will require changing in related system files.23:20
pfirsichwould it alter the uuid if I only resized and add a new partition at the end as well?23:21
Bashing-ompfirsich: I would expect so -.23:22
pfirsichso my plan of adding an efi partition to my drive that has ubuntu installed is probably risky?23:23
Bashing-ompfirsich: My experience, however, is limited to legacy booting.23:23
bpromptpfirsich:  how big is the HDD with all the partitions?23:24
Bashing-ompfirsich: Not at all . risky - If one knows the system files that "might" be effected. Legacy booting is only the /etc/fstab file one needs to be awareof and check.23:25
pfirsichbprompt: 232.91GB: /dev/sdc1 is 46.6GB (mounted to /), /dev/sdc2 is 186.3G and an extended partition that contains /dev/sdc5 (16.8GB swap) and /dev/sdc6 (169.6GB mounted to /home)23:25
IndianSlimAny tips for users trying 19.10 via USB key with nvidia drivers?23:25
Segajaok this is an ubuntu problem. if i check the debian package it is ok, but the ubuntu package is broken23:26
pfirsichBashing-om sadly I know very and I am (and want to) boot with EFI (because I want to dual boot with windows)23:27
bprompthmmm23:27
Segajacopying over the upstream file over the package installation works23:27
pfirsichI don't know if you want to scroll up. Should I state my problem again?23:28
bpromptpfirsich:  232.91+46.6+186.3+16.8+169.6 = 652.21 GBs total, why bother using GPT for storage and thus an EFI partition on a HDD that's not even 1TBs of size?  GPT and UEFI become relevant when the HDD is over 2TBs23:28
Bashing-ompfirsich: Await here for one with the Win/EFI experience to advise :)23:28
pfirsichbprompt: I was unclear. It's 232.91=46.6+186.3+16.8+169.6, so even less. I want to use EFI because I want to dual boot (on different disks though) and according to what I have read, that requires me to boot Ubuntu in efi mode, if Windows boots in efi mode23:29
pfirsichwhat I wrote is wrong again23:30

IndianSlimSounds like a failure at the keyboard23:30
IndianSlimFATK ERROR23:30
bpromptpfirsich:  so you have to HDD, and windows already installed is in a GPT partition, thus you need to make the 2nd HDD for Ubuntu to GPT?23:32
Bashing-ompfirsich: If Both Win and ubuntu are to reside on a single drive, then only one boot partition !23:32
bprompts/to/two/23:33
pfirsicha couple months ago I messed everything up really bad and right now I have Ubuntu installed on /dev/sdc in EFI mode (partitioned as outlined above). the EFI partition it is booting from is on sda though (/dev/sda2). And now I want to install Windows again, but on sda23:33
jeremy31pfirsich: there are plenty of sites with the info you need to fix the Ubuntu install from Windows using bcdedit in windows23:35
bpromptpfirsich:  so you haven't installed either Windows or Linux yet?  bearing in mind GPT/UEFI become relevant mainly when the HDD storage is 2TBs or larger23:35
pfirsichUbuntu is working fine23:35
pfirsichUbuntu is installed on sdc. It is what I am using right now23:36
jeremy31pfirsich: installing windows will likely remove the ubuntu entry from the efi boot list23:36
IndianSlimWindows 10?23:36
bpromptpfirsich:  I say that, for now and then, some folks format the HDD that's about 1TB or less with GPT mapping, thinking there's something of performance gain23:36
IndianSlimhttps://www.tecmint.com/install-ubuntu-alongside-with-windows-dual-boot/23:37
pfirsichyes, windows 10. I am not doing it for a performance gain. As I said: I did it because I thought (and still think) that's what I would have to do to make the dual boot work.23:37

IndianSlimThey play nicer today than they ever have23:39
IndianSlimAnd quite frankly with Windows Subsystem for Linux no need to dual boot anymore23:39
IndianSlimAside from trying to game on Linux for whatever reason23:39
pfirsichbrompt: When I installed Ubuntu with the intention of dual booting windows was already installed in efi mode. Now windows is broken, but Ubuntu is still installed in efi mode. I could install both again in legacy mode, but I don't really want to install both again23:39
IndianSlimdamn bro23:39
IndianSlimSounds like an id10t error23:40
pfirsichjeremy31 so do you think I should just let the windows installer kill my ubuntu efi and fix it later? if that's possible23:40
Segajainteresting. according to https://github.com/trapd00r/ls--/blob/master/README.md the package ls++ exists for ubuntu/debian, but I can't find it in ubuntu 18.04 mirrors23:40
pfirsichor my first idea was to move the efi partition ubuntu is using23:41
jeremy31pfirsich: you can fix from Windows23:41
bpromptpfirsich:  I see, windows was installed originally in EFI mode, so  you had no choice but to install Linux in EFI mode to correct the mistake, now windows is busted, and you need to reinstall, while making sure you keep the original mistake of using EFI in place =)23:41

pfirsichIndianSlim can you please just keep out of it? you are not helping at all23:43
pfirsichthe noise is pretty annoying23:43
IndianSlimpfirsich You obviously didn't read the article I linked which clearly explains a resolution23:43
IndianSlimYou are spamming the chat with your idiosyncrasies and lack of effort on your own part23:44
oerheks1IndianSlim, tone down please.23:44
IndianSlimDude can't even type properly23:44
IndianSlimI'm still waiting on my issue thank you23:44
d0tsun7IndianSlim: there is zero reason to be rude.23:45
IndianSlimWho's being rude?23:45
pfirsichIndianSlim your article is describing a different scenario. you misunderstood.23:45
d0tsun7IndianSlim: you are23:45
pfirsich@bpro23:45
IndianSlimOh that's subjective but thanks for your observation23:45
pfirsichsry23:45
pfirsichbprompt: do you think I should install both again then?23:46
k_k_kdoes ubuntu 19.10 still have GUI lag with a vega 56 compared to xfce/mate?23:46
bpromptpfirsich:  can you resize the linux GPT partition to make room for windows in EFI mode? possible, but sounds overkill, not to mention last I did it with Gparted on a live-session, when Gparted finds data in the resizing partition, it runs really slow trying to keep data intact23:46
Bashing-ompfirsich: Not knowing the partitioning ( sudo parted -l )- this may be a situation that efibootmgr can handle.23:46
bpromptpfirsich:  I think is overkill, yes, whilst you have a chance to correct the original EFI mistake on a HDD that's not even 1TB of storage23:46
d0tsun7IndianSlim: you're coming across as arrogant with trying to force pfirsich to take your solution when you're providing him/her a solution he/she is not looking for and then trying to be a bully by saying he/she can't type.23:46
IndianSlimd0tsun7 I don't remember anyone asking you23:47
jeremy31pfirsich: you can fix in windows or use a Live USB to fix the efi boot by reinstalling grub https://askubuntu.com/questions/83771/recovering-grub-after-installing-windows-723:47
pfirsichalso called me a failure and an idiot. that was nice23:47
IndianSlimOh my23:47
d0tsun7IndianSlim: you don't have to. this is a community irc chat and everyone is recognizing that you're being a nuisance.23:47
pfirsichjeremy31: so with the article you sent earlier I should just install windows, probably destroy that efi partition ubuntu is booted from and repair later?23:48
IndianSlimd0tsun7 nope just you and the guy who won't listen23:48
IndianSlimpfirsich what part of you not understanding GRUB AFTER WINDOWS BRO23:48
IndianSlimEveryone keeps telling you23:48
d0tsun7IndianSlim: i bet you are an absolute joy to work with IRL. anyway, that's all im going to say. have a good day man.23:48
gryk_k_k: you can install xfce/mate on ubuntu 19.10 - you do not have to use its default gui23:49
jeremy31pfirsich: installing windows shouldn't destroy the EFI partition, it will just remove the ubuntu entry from the UEFI boot order23:49
pfirsichIndianSlim because that's exactly how I started and that did not work23:49
bprompt"can't we all just get along" --- Rodney King at LA riots23:49
k_k_ki guess i like it's gnome though just wondered if the kinks were worked out23:49
IndianSlimd0tsun7 Yea a lot more carefree and jovial than you, perhaps if I was a neckbeard looking for a safespace I'd be critiquing people online as well23:49
pfirsichjeremy31 windows will use the efi partition ubuntu is using right now though, because ubuntu is using the efi partition on the disk windows will be installed on23:49
d0tsun7IndianSlim: it's not even worth the energy to type back to you.23:50
k_k_kthis is a help channel for ubuntu bro why u mad IndianSlim23:50
IndianSlimd0tsun7 maybe you should try /ignore since /ignore is for quitters23:50
oerheks1k_k_k, your nickname is offensive, please change that, thanks.23:50
k_k_kk and k were taken?23:50

k_k_kk & kk i mean*23:51
jeremy31pfirsich: if it does change the EFI system partition, https://askubuntu.com/questions/83771/recovering-grub-after-installing-windows-7 should fix23:51
IndianSlimLinux is not an OS23:51
bpromptnow now, who wants a nice hot cup of Chamomille tea?23:51
pfirsichbprompt: resizing is exactly what I initially wanted to do, but I fear it might break everything else23:51
IndianSlimpfirsich indecision is still a decision23:51
d0tsun7bprompt: ill take a cup pls23:51
IndianSlimBackup your data, install Win10, then install grub23:51
bpromptpfirsich:  yeap, likely, as Bashing-om said, not knowing the partition setup, it may very well can23:52
IndianSlimbprompt same!23:52
IndianSlimHello erry and welcome to #Ubuntu23:53
IndianSlimPlease feel free to !take a number.23:53
bpromptIndianSlim d0tsun7 sounds like a good deal, recall is on the kitchen cabinet, second shelf atop =)23:53
pfirsichubuntu and windows will be on different disks, but they would share the same efi partition. is that possible? jeremy31 or would recovering grub then just break the windows boot again? because when I installed ubuntu, my windows boot broke, I do not know if that was the issue though23:53
IndianSlimNow Serving: #2059123:53
leftyfbIndianSlim: please stop.23:54
d0tsun7so annoying.23:54
IndianSlimHello LearnAllTheTime welcome to #Ubuntu!23:54
pfirsichI would already have pastebinned my fdisk/parted output, but it's in german. I don't like that at all23:54
leftyfbIndianSlim: please stop.23:54
d0tsun7im not sure why IndianSlim is trying to act like a mod or something23:54
IndianSlimd0tsun7 lol says the guy trying to mod the channel23:55
pfirsichthat doesn't seem very mod-ey tbh23:55
IndianSlimwhat a hypocrite23:55
d0tsun7his horrible advice isn't mod worthy23:55
IndianSlimJust welcoming new users23:55
bpromptpfirsich:  when installing windows it will kick out Grub the bootloader, and yes, is possible when installing Ubuntu it'll kick the BCD the windows manager, however, either way, from an ubuntu live-session,  you can always put Grub back up and boot both OSes23:55
IndianSlimd0tsun7 then you can /ignore me23:55
IndianSlimThank you bprompt exactly what I said23:56
jeremy31pfirsich: it is possible to share the same EFI.  The only way I can see Ubuntu breaking Windows boot from EFI is to install Ubuntu in Legacy, then Windows would have to be booted from BIOS boot menu23:56
IndianSlimIn three steps23:56
pfirsichI am afraid that If I reinstall grub it will just kick out windows from that efi partition and I will be back at only being able to boot one of them23:56
IndianSlimbprompt rocks23:56
leftyfbIndianSlim: This is a support channel. Please either ask for help with something or provide valid support. Anything else is offtopic. Feel free to /join #offtopic if you do not fit into either of the 2 options.23:56
pfirsichokay. then I will just install windows, and recover grub23:56
oerheks1it does not kick out windows from the uefi partition23:57
IndianSlimleftyfb I'm waiting for my issue to be resolved, thank you. but no thanks23:57
pfirsichand if that breaks, I will reinstall ubuntu and repartition first with a separate efi partition for the drive that ubuntu is installed on23:57
oerheks1!uefi23:57
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI23:57
d0tsun7pfirsich i've dual booted ubuntu before and had it skip over my ubuntu partiton and boot right into windows. i believe i ran a regedit fix and it allowed ubuntu to be seen again and i had the default linux grub back with options to boot into either system.23:57
IndianSlimleftyfb feel free to take your own advice or /ignore23:57
leftyfbIndianSlim: what is your Ubuntu support question?23:57
IndianSlimleftyfb I'm in queue thanks23:57
bpromptpfirsich:  well, as Bashing-om , I haven't done much EFI, but fairly sure efibootmgr can manage that, I've put Grub back but on Bios/MBR partition setup, fairly simply from a Ubuntu live-session using a "chroot" session23:57
IndianSlimDon't need your help23:58
leftyfbIndianSlim: there is no queue. Either ask your question or provide valid support. Anything else is offtopic.23:58
d0tsun7pfirsich: as in i was unable to see my ubuntu partition at all since the windows grub was stealing priority. but i haven't had it happen where ubuntu would boot and hide my windows partiton. i believe that's what you're encountering if im digesting this right23:58
IndianSlimleftyfb you should scroll up before you involve yourself. no one was talking to you neckbeard23:58
oerheks1IndianSlim, please leave, such attitude is unwelcome here.23:58
pfirsichwhat happened is that windows did show up in grub, but it just didn't work23:58
