ninguI've noticed that when I do "lxc list", I get this error: cannot create temporary directory for the root file system: Permission denied00:13
ninguany idea where it's trying to create that temporary directory? and what the permission issue might be?00:14
ninguerm... well strace says it's /tmp/snap.rootfs_gif0dt00:17
ninguahh it's being denied by apparmor00:22
akikningu: is that using lxd snap?00:23
ninguyes. I think this is because I symlinked /tmp to /var/tmp00:23
ninguand it's messing up the apparmor profile00:24
ninguyeah that was it00:30
abtm_I am trying to test my cluster of caching proxies and was looking for a large non-snap package (traditional apt managed package or metapackage) that is 20 to 30 mb00:58

sliverajust trying to install ubuntu 20.04 LTS on my dell xps13 and i'm finding the screen flickers unless I boot it into graphics safe mode, but now i'm finding that it quickly tries the standard boot mode and doesn't give me the option to select safe graphics mode (this is using the USB) - anyone got tips on how to proceed here?03:29
=== Joah is now known as Glassjoe
=== Glassjoe is now known as Glassjoe_
sliverai.e. that screen where you pick to just boot standard Ubuntu or select graphics safe mode flashes up only for a split second and I don't have the time to select graphics safe mode03:30
=== Glassjoe_ is now known as Glassjoe
EriC^^slivera: the recovery menu?03:31
sliveraEriC^^, not sure if thats the correct term but basically black screen with a border and like 5 choices, usually I think the default is to boot live version of Ubuntu. So i think it's auto-picking that without giving me a choice03:33
EriC^^slivera: oh, try spamming the 'e' maybe it opens the edit menu03:34
EriC^^then add 'nomodeset' to the linux /boot ........ <kernel parameters here> line and press f10 to boot03:35
sliveraoh but I haven't installed it yet? I wanted to live boot into safe graphics mode, then do the install03:35
EriC^^yeah that should boot with safe  graphics03:36
EriC^^it's basically what happens when you choose safe graphics from the menu03:36
sliverahmm just tried spamming e on boot, still not working for me, its going normal liveboot03:36
ledenislivera: try press tab when boot live usb03:37
EriC^^try holding shift perhaps03:37
sliveraso I presume the order then its: go into one time boot menu, select USB, then hold shift while waiting?03:42
Bashing-omslivera: At the purple splash screen (stick figure keyboard emblems at bottom of screen) -> hit any key ->03:44
Bashing-omLanguage screen -> escape key to accept the default ->03:44
Bashing-omBooting options screen -> F6 key (other options) -> arrow down to the preset option(s) space or enter to accept and then the escape key to exit03:44
sliveraah holding shift worked! thanks EriC^^ - will boot up live version then install ubuntu and just wipe the windows off this thing. Any tips on how to make it boot safe graphics every time?03:45
sliverai presume thats where I'd have to press e and edit some command setting? like the 'nomodeset' thing?03:45
EriC^^slivera: yeah, you can add nomodeset to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub and then sudo update-grub to make it effective03:47
EriC^^slivera: a driver might fix it though why not give that a shot instead?03:48
Bashing-omslivera: Be aware that "nomodeset" does much more than just disabling the graphic's driver as all DKMS is disabled - "nomodeset" should only be temporary untill the situation is resolved.03:49
sliveraok well i'm doing the formatting and installing ubuntu now, will explore the graphics driver EriC^^  and thanks for the tip Bashing-om03:51
Bashing-omslivera: :D - We are here to help.03:52
=== leion1 is now known as leion
sliveraso Bashing-om I've now installed ubuntu on the laptop, but its got that flickering thing and now i dont even get that option to pick graphics safe mode on boot up, is there a key combo i'm missing here?04:06
Bashing-omslivera: If it is a MBR (Non UEFI) install it is the shift key that grub looks for as soon as the bios screen clears. In grubs boot menu is advanced options - from here choose "recovery". We then need to see what the graphic's situation is.04:08
sliverahmm its a Dell XPS 13 9380, so i think it's a intel graphics thing. will try the shift key04:10
Bashing-omslivera: UEFI machines it is the escape key - spam it as there is but a 3 second window of opportunity.04:11
sliveraBashing-om, cool so i'm in GRUB, i've got a terminal now, what next?04:12
Bashing-omsincere_fox: And while on my mind - if it is a UEFI machine ya really do wnat to install in UEFI mode ( ubuntu will install either).04:12
sliveraWell pressing esc was what got me into it, so I guess I did UEFI?04:13
Bashing-omslivera: Yup - great uefi :) .. ol let's jve a look at graphics on this box: pastebin the output of terminal command ' lspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d' ' .04:14
Bashing-omslivera: * OK let's have a look *04:15
=== tripelb is now known as dubbelb
sliveraoh wait no sorry I think it is non UEFI, i pressed shift and now i've got the 3 options - Ubuntu, advanced optiosn for ubuntu, and UEFI firmware settings04:16
Bashing-omslivera: Literally running "[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS" will tell you if you're booted via UEFI.04:18
sliverai get syntax error, on both comands there - the lspci one and the echo BIOS one04:19
sliverathats doing the command in GRUB, unless i should be doing it on actual terminal in the booted up ubuntu?04:19
sliveramaybe i try booting into the recovery mode instead of standard? or is there where i should set that nomode thing04:20
Bashing-omslivera: The commands with out the quote marks - those are here to indicate that the string is a command.04:20
sliveralspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d'04:21
sliveraso i typed that and got syntax error, do you mean without even the single quotation marks around vga 3d ?04:21
Bashing-omslivera: that terminal ' is the issue. lspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d' | nc termbin.com 999904:23
Bashing-omslivera: My result: https://termbin.com/k5u004:24
sliverayeah i'm just getting syntax error04:25
sliveramaybe i try booting into recovery mode04:25
Bashing-omslivera: wierd - what results ' sudo apt update ' ?04:26
sliveraoh i just booted into recovery mode and now the graphics is working fine in here - also was able to do that command, will put it in a pastebin one sec04:28
Bashing-omslivera: Intel - Intel "just works" abd the driver is included in the kernel. I do not know what else to check here as the i915 driver is loaded :(04:33
Bashing-omslivera: Have you updated the install ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' since the install ?04:35
sliveraBashing-om, ah no i haven't, will try those now04:35
Bashing-omslivera: Maybe a firmware upgrade in in the upgrade .04:36
sliverayeah the sudo apt update and upgrade didn't seem to fix it, normal boot still does this weird flickering thing. it seems so weird that i have to go thru recovery mode to have my graphics work fine with no flickering04:38
Bashing-omslivera: See and consider the advise at the bottom ' apt show xserver-xorg-video-intel ' . Confirm eith ' dpkg -l xserver-xorg-video-intel '.04:43
sliverahttps://pastebin.com/XhRf29VU is what I get, basically it's saying its an old driver04:45
Bashing-omslivera: And is that driver installed ' dpkg -l xserver-xorg-video-intel ' ?04:47
sliverayeah it shows up when i type that command, but i can't see where it says installed or not, i presume yes04:49
Bashing-omslivera: the leading "ii" shws desired == (i)nstalled status == (i)nstalled. Looking to find the means to know IF that is the driver that is in use at this time.04:51
sliveraah thanks ok04:52
Bashing-omslivera: Sorry - I do not have Intel skills sufficient to know I will not mislead you - Await here for others with the skills to aid.04:59
sliveraawesome well thanks very much for your help anyway Bashing-om04:59
EriC^^slivera: try 'sudo ubuntu-drivers devices' and see what it lists05:17

DrecondiusI can't get my windows drive to boot from grub. It's shown, and I just had to re-install grub. and it's not booting, if you need an error message from it I can boot again and grab a pic of it.06:00
DrecondiusIt's on a seperate drive from ubuntu's / and, as I said before, it shows on the grub menu, I'll be right back and pop in with the error06:02
DrecondiusOk,ay, when trying to boot windows it's as follows :06:07
Drecondiuserror: no such device : 70dc1b12dc1ad26806:08
Drecondiussetting partition type to 0x8306:08
Drecondiuserror: Invalid signature06:08
Drecondiusand this is all from the grub menu06:10
Drecondiusany ideas on how to correct this?06:17
guivercDrecondius, it's likely the issue is UUID, use `blkid` to view your UUIDs, and compare the wanted partition UUID with that listed in grub (sorry I don't have a windows system to look at what you should see in grub)06:49
EriC^^Drecondius: can you pastebin your '/boot/grub/grub.cfg' ?06:49
EriC^^it looks pretty normal, what does 'sudo blkid /dev/sda' give?06:56
Drecondiusdev/sda: PTUUID="a2c292e7" PTTYPE="dos"06:56
EriC^^sorry "sudo blkid /dev/sda*"06:56

Drecondiusoh, sda*06:57

Drecondiusdag nab it06:59
Drecondiuswouldn't let me paste the whole thing in here06:59
Drecondiuseven though it's only 3 lines07:00
DrecondiusI'm beginning to suspect a bug in grub07:00
EriC^^is ubuntu in mbr mode? try "ls /sys/firmware/efi"07:01
EriC^^yeah seems odd, i wonder if it's adding the right lines in the menu, looking for an example windows mbr grub entry currently07:01
DrecondiusYeah, I just posted in grub to see if anyone can help with it or confirm, if so I will see if I can post a bug report the best I can. I've been "dabbling" with ubuntu  since my commercially pressed 8.10 disc lol07:04
DrecondiusIt's come a LONG way since then.07:04
EriC^^Drecondius: did you change the ahci/raid mode before installing ubuntu?07:06
Drecondiusjust boot order07:07
Drecondiuscould it be my drive is corrupted?07:07
EriC^^Drecondius: an easy check is to manually boot it from the bios07:07
EriC^^put its order before ubuntu's disk or use a run-time boot menu if available07:08
EriC^^it might just need a windows bootloader installation, you could also try to mount /dev/sda2 and see how that responds07:09
Drecondiusi can boot it from bios, either by setting windows as primary boot or via instant boot selection, or do you mean set windows to boot first then re-install or update grub?07:09
EriC^^oh ok, no i just meant to see if it boots on its own07:10
DrecondiusYeah, it boots on it's own, i have already fried both mbr's just trying to fix this myself07:10
Drecondiusand fixed them, i'm not in a live env this time :D07:10
EriC^^Drecondius: is ubuntu also in mbr mode? try "ls /sys/firmware/efi" and see if it says no such dir07:11
DrecondiusYeah, Dell Precision T7500, i think it's a hybrid system, but both are mbr because the machine itself doesn't support efi07:11
EriC^^Drecondius: yeah but what is ubuntu using (and grub)07:12
Drecondiusubuntu is mbr07:12
Drecondiusas is windows07:13
DrecondiusWindows is there in the grub selection07:13

viktor_younder: you want to log in automatically?08:17
younderviktor_, yes08:17
viktor_younder: does this help? http://xchat.org/faq/#q23 Of course you'll have to input your usern & passw somewhere in preferences or something.08:20
younderviktor_, Not really. You register the name and nick in a dialog. Then you select the channels to connect to. The problem is that it doesn't wait until the nick is identified before it tries to connect.08:23
viktor_younder: and ubuntu-unregged stays open after getting logged in to ubuntu?08:25

amcsiI have this weird issue that occasionally (like every 2 hours) some networking issue would happen to me that approximately 1/3 of the IPs would become unreachable until I unplug and plug back my ethernet cable.09:33

amcsiThis can even cause me to get cut off from Zoom calls09:33
amcsiI've already confirmed that this is not a DNS issue, because the IP can't be pinged either, and I already tried setting my DNS to and it didn't fix it09:33

oerheksLuca_D, so that fix does not work on the internal.. i guess only plugincards are working then?16:13
oerhekswhy would you need the internal working too?16:13
Luca_Doerheks , just because I often use Jack-dependent applications without an external audio card16:14

Luca_Doerheks, with the external sound card and Kernel 5.4.0-33, I just get the same error in Jack :D  https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/BSc63gzhF8/16:20
oerheksLuca_D, so the plugincard disables the onboard,.. reverse that manjaro fix?16:21
oerheksnot sure you *can*  use the onboard together ..16:22
Luca_Doerheks, indeed now the external soundcard works! You're good! Thanks. I believe that at this point I will just install two different Ubuntus, one for travelling, and one for professional audio16:24

EmmaTmesaboogie it installs just fine when i remove bionic .. and it runs fine ...17:02
EmmaTit must be the security repo in 18 preventing it ... i dont get how i can be prevented by adding another repo17:02
EmmaTlet us try --ignore-missing,17:03
ioriaEmmaT, what xenial repository have you added ?  universe or main ?17:04

EmmaTand i cant override it17:05
EmmaTunless i remove 18 repos17:05
ioriaEmmaT,  you need to comment the universe bionic repo17:05
EmmaTioria what is that ? is that the main bionic ?17:06
EmmaTwhy would it prevent the installation... and why do i have to comment it out .. this package is not even in there17:06
ioriaEmmaT,  on xenial that pkfg is in main, on bionic is in universe17:06
EmmaTioria i am installing 3.2.6-3ubuntu617:07

ioriaEmmaT, you cannot force version from another release17:11
ioriaEmmaT, comment the bionic repos and simply install  libgconf2-417:11
EmmaTioria yes, that works .... and software runs ... however, confused what that means .. can not force ... i am trying install a specific verison (6) ... that is in xenial ... is it the problem then that it has dependencies that it resolves to bionic ... and then it tries to install stuff from there ... despite it also being in xenial ... maybe order in sources.list matters ?17:13
EmmaTi have no issues like i said with any other package17:13
EmmaTjust this17:13
EmmaTobviously an issue and potentially unsafe17:14
EmmaTthe one in bionic is then marked with wrong dependencies ..17:14

ioriaEmmaT, libgconf2-4  != libgconf-2-4    (note the '-')  and you probably have already the bionic version installed (3.2.6-4ubuntu1); so it fails and you might need to remove it18:08

zmagiiHi everyone, I reinstalled Ubuntu over macOS. Is there a good way to recover access to the Windows partition that I had on Bootcamp.18:57
zmagiiI can also reinstall Windows if that is better. The info on the Windows partition is not important.18:58
zmagiiIf I try to boot into the Windows partition with the Macintosh startup key (I think shift) I can boot into Windows as an option, but it then proceeds to say "no OS installed".18:59
Bashing-omzmagii: Does the Windows partition still exist ' sudo parted -l ' in a pastebin to show the channel what we are working with.18:59
zmagiiBashing-om: https://pastebin.com/raw/FX1eAmj519:03
zmagiiYou'll see that the last data is just to say that I encrypted the Ubuntu partition19:03
Bashing-omzmagii: looking ^^19:07
Bashing-omzmagii: Looks recoverable - " EFI System Partition " but will take one who knows what to expect in that directory. I am not Windfows/UEFI knowledgeable :(19:09
zmagiiBashing-om: So is that the boot loader or something for Windows?19:14
Bashing-omzmagii: It contains ( or should)  the code to boot the selected OS.19:15

leftyfbzmagii: I'm not that familiar with it, but maybe it's possible the Windows install on bootcamp will only work using bootcamp. Isn't there some sort of hypervisor going on therE?19:29
zmagiiBashing-om: Just one more question, does this mean UEFI mode is on?19:33
zmagiileftyfb: I am not sure if there is, but Bootcamp does have funny restrictions in general like for example it had to be Windows 7 at some point.19:35
Bashing-omzmagii: Literally running "[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS" will tell you if you're booted via UEFI.19:38
zmagiiSorry, just as you posted I read that section.19:38
Bashing-omzmagii: I am not up on bootcamp - Is that a Mac bootloader ? as Mac no longer exist I can accept that bootcamp will have to be replaced by grub ( GRand Unified Bootloader ).19:41
zmagiiBootcamp is the "official" way to dual boot Windows if you have a Macintosh running macOS.19:42
zmagiiYou launch it as an app from within macOS and install Windows by following the GUI, after which you have a dual boot with Windows. I think it restarts a few times as you do it. Then on startup you can hold alt I think to choose the disk, otherwise it boots into macOS.19:43
mw_is there a library somewhere with hashes for all binaries ever distributed by ubuntu, including possible inter-release updates? i ran into a suspicious file on my system, checked all the 18.04.* releases and couldn't find a match, even by version number. does that automatically mean it's something malicious? or is it possible that there has been an update that have never made its way to the stable distro?19:45

tomreynnote what debsums does, though20:04
EriC^^mw_: did you figure out that bash weirdness in the end?20:04
tomreynit checked whether the files belonging to packages are original. it does not check whether some additional files you may have should be there or not,20:04
tomreynmw_: uploading the file to virustotal (or just searching for its checksum so you don't leak potentially sensible info by uploading it) is most likely a better test than clamav.20:07
mw_EriC^^, its so embarassing, but.. yep, the binary was surely not from ubuntu. still have no idea how it got there tho. i had one of the accounts breached some time ago, a miner was installed, it didn't take too long to notice and disarm, and i was confident that was it. looks like something much worse happened, but i'm still unsure exactly what.20:09
EriC^^mw_: oh yikes, sounds like reinstall/latest secure backup time, eek20:11

quadrathoch2it brings up the menu on the top left (from the app not the app switcher)20:45
quadrathoch2this is what I don't get20:45
bytesafariwhat file is that from?20:48
quadrathoch2terminal commands I entered20:48
bytesafariah okay20:48
quadrathoch2sorry, forgot to copy the $ ;)20:49
quadrathoch2bytesafari, so also no idea? :/20:56
tomreynmw_: the 256sum you posted matches ubuntu 18.04-amd64's /bin/bash20:58
bytesafariquadrathoch2, yeah, not really sure. Could be the syntax of your gsettings command, but I'm not sure20:58
quadrathoch2bytesafari, thanks :), off to more searching around :>20:58
tomreynmw_: so you'd find it in here: https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic-updates/amd64/bash/download21:05

freebenchhaven't tried yet21:19
abtm_blazed, looks like astrachat PC version is only avail for corp customers21:32
blazedye i've actually just been reading on it, didi a quick google search from freebench's question. shame.21:33

jay42Hi, running Ubuntu server 18.04 with lxd (btrfs backend), after a kernel event (INFO: task btrfs-transacti:1453 blocked for more than 120 seconds.) all containers are hung and not responding to commands. Did anyone have a similar issue, any suggestions?22:52
sarnoldjay42: is there anything else in dmesg?23:01
sarnoldjay42: it might be worthwhile trying to grab /proc/pid/stack files for all the hung processes, too23:02
jay42sarnold: Yes, more details for the btrfs event, then there is an lxd message: lvl=warn msg="Detected poll(POLLNVAL) event."23:03
jay42And then several services in systemd stopped, eventually causing systemd-logind service to hang, and disable logins.23:04
jay42In ps, I see there are lots of btrfs processes active: btrfs property set -ts /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/storage-pools/.... ro false23:04
sarnoldprocesses stuck in D state tend to multiply23:05
jay42Indeed, they're all in D state.23:06
Jordan_Ujay42: Has this happened more than once?23:11
jay42Jordan_U: No, this is the first time after almost 1 year of lxd+btrfs setup.23:14
jay42My theory is that something went wrong during the lxd snapshot of the container, blocking btrfs overall and hence the containers.23:15
Jordan_Ujay42: I'm seeing other reports of the error "task btrfs-transacti" "blocked for more than" from googling, and they're all from 2016/17/18. I wonder if this is a bug that was fixed since 2018.23:16
jay42lxd is pretty new - 4.123:18
Jordan_Ujay42: My guess is that it's not an lxd specific problem, but rather a more general btrfs bug.23:20
jay42Pastebin of the kernel event when it all started: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/MqkTTYGb96/23:21
tripelbHello this is the fifth day of reporting my Ubuntu 20.04 keeps freezing. I sure hope somebody will take up the problem. I have something called Plex server running as root. (Yes I removed the Plex server.) Yesterday I posted a snip from my TOP command23:22
jay42btrfs-transacti being the first, and others following (systemd-journal, postgres, apache, lxd)23:22
matsamantripelb: when it freezes can you switch to another TTY? Can you ssh in?23:23
matsamantripelb: usually only will be so many things: out of RAM, primary storage (hard disk/etc.) failure, rare X bug, overheated hardware23:24
blizzowIs there any concise documentation/video that makes managing networking (particularly DNS) in ubuntu understandable?23:25
tripelbMatsaman  I wasn't out of time I checked that the other way My hdd just doesn't fail because I can keep rebooting. I don't know how to switch to another TTY or SSH in.  --. I'm not a sis up. I'm a woman at home with home internet one laptop several Android devices...23:25
quadrathoch2blizzow, anything particular you are wanting to have a look at?23:26
tripelbIt releases and refreezes. Matsaman I think he's totally gone because Nick completion doesn't work on his name. This is the fifth day I'm asking about this. I have new information today It's related to chrome23:26
matsamantripelb: okay, so maybe just don't use chrome for now? Try Firefox23:27
matsamantripelb: or at least chromium instead23:27
matsamanany chrome on Linux is going to be a beastly binary blob23:27
matsamanif you use Chromium it will at least be packaged sensibly23:27
tripelbMatsaman Right I can use Firefox. But I really like to have chrome. But the same thing happens with chromium.23:27
matsamantripelb: okay so you're using chromium and doing nothing special and it freezes?23:28
tripelbIt releases then comes back to the freeze. I can tell cuz the mouse will move a couple inches when I swing the cursor around23:28
matsamantripelb: how much RAM have you got?23:28
tripelbIf nothing special means using IRC and chromium at the same time, maybe looking at a directory listing, then yes.23:28
tripelbThis time I started and made sure it Did not restore any of the old links in case it was one of them. ---- I think it is this "Plex server" running two processes as root.23:29
tripelbI'm doing this on the phone let me switch to the computer where the pastebin link resides23:29
blizzowquadrathoch2, I want to run a good local resolver on port 53. I can't start it up because systemd-resolved is stuck there. systemctl stop systemd-resolved doesn't kill the resolver.23:29
blizzowSo I use killall systemd-resolved. dnsmasq takes over!23:30
blizzowso I killall dnsmasq23:30
oerheksplex as root, crazy.23:30
blizzowThen I'm able to fire up a good resolver on
blizzowBut noooo.23:30
oerheksold fix .. https://forums.plex.tv/t/proper-way-to-run-plex-as-another-user-with-systemd-ubuntu-server-16-04-lts/158853/223:30
tripelbOh that's right I have to reboot to do that23:30
tripelbBecause it's on Firefox23:31
blizzowI go into netplan and try and change the resolver to and f' you ubuntu tells me.23:31
oerheksbut plex is not freeware23:31
matsamanproper-way-to-blah-blah-nonsense-situation, heh23:31
matsamantripelb: I just need the output of 'free -m'23:31
blizzowI try to just edit /etc/resolv.conf, but there's a bunch of scary text in there saying it's worthless now.23:31
matsamantripelb: not even the output, just the human-rounded first number (mem total)23:31
tripelbmatsaman I have to reboot the computer to unfreeze the mouse to do anything on the computer, I can't even bring up terminal with the keyboard, iir23:32
blizzowWhy the hell do I need to follow breadcrumbs through the documentation of /etc/resolv.conf into systemd-resolved into netplan, into some other garbage. Jesus I miss my old /etc/resolv.conf23:32
blizzowWhen I look for netplan dns howtos, this comes up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bbdc_CvDGUM23:32
blizzowHow f'ing true.23:32
matsamantripelb: ok23:33
quadrathoch2blizzow, can you test out systemctl disable --now systemd-resolved.service (because here it works 100% got no resolver anymore)23:33
matsamanblizzow: because you're using systemd, and it's awful23:33
tripelbmatsaman last time I looked at the RAM out of 8 gigs I think it was using three or else point three. It wasn't anywhere near half23:33
matsamantripelb: so you have 8GB total?23:34
tripelbWell maybe my memory was wrong. I just booted up and totaled a 7.4 gigs and free is 5.4 gigs23:34
tripelbAvailable 615423:34
matsamantripelb: okay, so that's fine23:34
blizzowmatsaman, I understand systemd is awful. Oh, don't I know it. quadrathoch2 - so if I disable the garbage that's systemd-resolved, what's doing resolution at that point?23:35
blizzowDoes it fall back to /etc/resolv.conf?23:35
matsamantripelb: what does 'swapon -s' say?23:35
blizzowDoes netplan write /etc/resolv.conf?23:35
blizzowOr does networkmanager do some magique?23:35
quadrathoch2blizzow, nothing, because only systemd-resolved is setup to resolve anything23:35
matsamantripelb: or, 'swapon --show' is better23:36
tripelbLet me see if the Plex server is running yet. AH HA: NOW: 7.46 total 1.23 used 5.02 free, 5.98=available23:37
tripelbNow LESS is being used.23:37
quadrathoch2so is plex still running? I assume that plex is hogging much of the resources23:37
Jordan_Ublizzow: https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/network-configuration If you're using network-manager, you should also be able to configure dns via nm-connection-editor or nmtui (terminal ncurses based interface).23:38
blizzowShould one use netplan or networkmanager?23:39
tripelbmatsaman results of show. /dev/sda14 partition 16M used 0B prio -1.  (Next line/ sda13 1020K 0B -323:39
quadrathoch2netplan is just a configurator for nm and systemd-networkd23:39
Jordan_Ublizzow: That depends on your use case. I would expect that servers would benefit more from netplan, and desktops would generally use network-manager.23:39
tripelbStarting firefox23:40
quadrathoch2blizzow, did you get it running? because still not 100% sure what you want to achieve23:42
matsamantripelb: How about this?: lsblk | grep -i swap23:43
=== Frietziek is now known as Psycopatah
tripelbFrom yesterday, top.   https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/ZNf2TGbBGr/23:44
tripelbmatsaman That's yesterday I'll do the LS block now23:45
blizzowI want to run a docker container or VM with my own dns server that serves DNS on port 53 on I want to change the nameserver on the host running the VM or docker container to I want to point other hosts to use this as a DNS server.23:45
matsamanblizzow: why's that?23:45
quadrathoch2blizzow, which software do you want to use for that (because dnsmasq is not bad for that)23:46
tripelbmatsaman There was no output to that LS to grep statement23:46
matsamantripelb: I wonder if you have any swap at all, time was with 8GB of RAM it wouldn't be such a big deal, but that might not be the case with contemporary nonsenses23:47
matsamanswap is usually useful to have23:47
tripelbI have 16 gigs of swap iir. I will figure out which command will display it in a moment.23:48
tripelbI see SDA 13 and SDA 14 are both swap One has 1M and the other has 16M23:48
tripelbI'm speaking because it's easier than typing on a phone23:49
matsamantripelb: M as in megabytes is essentially zero swap23:49
tripelbWhen I installed the system on this partition... Oh you're right. Can I fix that without reinstalling Ubuntu?23:50
blizzowquadrathoch2, I want to use knot-resolver locally because A) I'm on a wireless backhaul so my best performing DNS server comes in at about 80ms. B) I want the ability to load a nice blacklist C) I want good metrics out of my DNS server D) I want a DNS server that automatically renews cached items23:51
matsamantripelb: yes23:51
quadrathoch2blizzow, as long as you know how to setup that resolver I am fine with helping you to deactivate any other resolver ;)23:52
Jordan_Utripelb: Yes. You can either boot from a LiveUSB and use GParted (be sure to test it afterward, in case the UUID for the swap partition changes and you need to modify the /etc/fstab), or you can switch to using a swap file instead of a swap partition.23:52
tripelbI'm into the swap faq in help.Ubuntu...23:52
quadrathoch2tripelb, just a sidequestion, do you want to have plex installed? as you already said a few times you removed it (but everything you show us, it's still installed)23:53
tripelbquadrathoch2 The day I got some kind of an answer in the Plex system they said none of it should run as root. I've never used Plex yet It's not important to me.23:54
tripelbI definitely want to remove those things running as root.23:55
tripelbIf I have to swap partitions can I just turn them into one swap partition?   This help.ubuntu page is telling me how to add or modify a swap partition.23:56
matsamantripelb: yes, it's not 100% safe technically, so make a backup first23:57
matsamanyou would just remove one, resize the other, and make sure it's set up properly23:57
matsamanif you use a swap file you can just disable any swap partitions and use that and it'll be completely safe23:57
matsamanwhen you're messing with actual partitions, there's always a greater than 0 chance something will turn into the shape of a pear23:58
tripelbOh I have a few unused 30g partitions. But they were made by Windows and I was afraid to do anything with gparted. At the moment I've quite forgotten my windows password. (My stupid hint is the same as the username)23:58
matsamaneven if usually that doesn't happen23:58
matsamantripelb: mmm, well, they're probably not encrypted, so you can likely read the data from Linux23:59
matsamantripelb: and back it up if you want23:59
tripelbNamikazeo I didn't make any encrypted partitions.23:59
matsamanthere are tools to recover/reset passwords, frequently, too23:59
tripelb.. No I didn't make any encrypted partitions23:59
matsamanmost people don't23:59
tripelbYeah well I have to figure that out for windows. I can reset an Ubuntu password with my hand s tied behind my back just using my a stick tied to my nose23:59
