pinheadmz1I have quesiton about custom dns server using ubuntu 2000:14
pinheadmz1when i set my dns server ip in settings, it just doesnt work00:14
pinheadmz1i can manually force it in resolv.conf00:14
pinheadmz1but that gets overwritten onr estart now00:15

tomreynpinheadmz1: hmm, usually this would be applied as soon as this connection is activated00:17
pinheadmz1i dont understand00:17
pinheadmz1there could be something wrong with my resovler00:17
pinheadmz1when i set it works00:17
pinheadmz1or seems to00:17
pinheadmz1but when i set to ip of resolver i run it doesnt00:17
pinheadmz1but i know that resolver works00:17
pinheadmz1bc i can dig @ it00:17
pinheadmz1and when i manually set in resolv.conf it works, until restart00:17
pinheadmz1so i wonder if ubuntu does some kind of check against a DNS server00:18
pinheadmz1mayube i dont have something configured quite right and ubuntu just ignores my custom dns setting00:18
tomreynwhen you set it in the network manager GUI (the one you discussed above) and activate the link, what does "systemd-resolve --status" report for this link's "DNS Servers:" and what's logged in the system journal?00:19
pinheadmz1it reports the correct IP, the one i set00:20
tomreynand how do you tell that "it does not work"?00:20
pinheadmz1because i cant get any dns results :-P00:21
pinheadmz1all dig returns empty and browser doesnt work00:21
pinheadmz1until i manually set the resolver ip in resolv.conf00:21
tomreynand "systemd-resolve example.org" reports?00:21
pinheadmz1recieved invalid reply00:22

tomreynso back to my previous question: what's logged to the journal?00:24
pinheadmz1journalctl systemd-resolve ?00:24
filifunkyhellooooo!  I upgraded to ubuntu 20.04 which apparently likes python 3.  I had problems so I made my python default to python 3.  However when I ran this program i like rednotebook it gives me problems.  What I found online is that I should learn to do virtualenv.  So I did that but even though i setup a virtualenv where I say hey use python 2.7, when i do a python --version it still gives me python 3.  Any ideas of what I should do?00:25
tomreyngenerally, when you activate the connection and try to resolve something using systemd-resolve00:25
tomreynpinheadmz1: also which dns server are you using, configured how?00:25
bparkerfilifunky: run python2 instead of python00:26
pinheadmz1tomreyn: so no new lines in journal when i systemd-resolve, or dig00:26
pinheadmz1tomreyn: its not Bind, its something else... Handshake. A blockcahin based alternative root zone :-)00:26
pinheadmz1but it works just like any recursive resolver00:26
pinheadmz1and it works on my windows and mac machines fine. and on linux servers00:27
filifunkybparker ahhh, well yeah when i do python2 --version it gives me the right version00:27
pinheadmz1but trying to get it working on ubntu dektop, facing this issue00:27
tomreynpinheadmz1: well, apparently it doesn't work in a way that systemd-resolve would expect.00:27
filifunkyok maybe that's all i need to figure out what my next problem is00:27
pinheadmz1tomreyn: yup.00:27
pinheadmz1wish i could get better errors00:27
pinheadmz1id also be happy with disabling systemd-resolve and just using a static resolv.conf00:28
pinheadmz1or network manager or whatever it is that overwrites resolv.conf on startup00:28

blackhawk101filifunky: update-alternatives --list python00:31
filifunkyblackhawk101 i get an error, no alternatives for python00:32
tomreynpinheadmz1: i suggest you bring it up in #handshake, you won't be the first to run into this interoperability issue with systemd-resolve00:32

tomreynpinheadmz1: i guess i'd read the available freedesktop.org documentation, capture the traffic generated by systemd-resolve and compare it to other queries (e.g. by dig), and ensure handshakes' responses comply with with the relevant RFCs. if that's the case, you could probably file a bug against systemd-resolve (after investigating existing reports).00:40

filifunkymatsaman wooo it works01:57
matsamancool cool01:58
filifunkybut now i get these errors when trying to install gobject PyGObject01:58
matsamanthe way those environments work, of course, is that they're self contained, but they obviously still rely on your system-level python things ultimately01:58
filifunkyERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement gobject (from versions: none)01:58
filifunkyERROR: No matching distribution found for gobject01:58
matsamansometimes those system-level things change and break the envs01:58

filifunkypip 20.1.1 from /home/pete/Environments/py2_env/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip (python 2.7)01:59
matsamanyou mean to be using python 2?01:59
filifunkyI updated to the latest ubuntu which uses python 3...but then I couldn't run rednotebook...so trying to run python 2 and see if it works01:59
matsamanfilifunky: I think that's a python2 issue02:00
filifunkyso I learned today about these virtual environments02:00
matsamanlike maybe there are no more py2 packages for gobject/etc., or maybe there never were, or maybe they have different names, etc.02:00
matsamanin the most former case, you could probably track them down02:00
filifunkymatsaman, hmmm oh ok02:01
matsamanfilifunky: I get a deprecation notice along with those two error msgs02:01
filifunkyyeah I got that too02:02
matsamanlooks like gobject only, though, not PyGObject02:02
matsamanso I'm wondering if 'gobject' was ever a package for python202:03
tomreynrednotebook is python3 nowadays. i posted a PPA link which contains builds for focal (which filifunky is running) a while ago here. the build logs confirm it.02:05
matsamanpypi is case insenstive, btw, so 'pygobject' should work fine02:05
filifunkytomreyn oh ok, i looked at that briefly but will try harder02:05
filifunkytomreyn ok, I added those ppa entries to my sources.list.  That didn't change anything I still get the error when trying to run it.  I did the install of rednotebook at the top of that page and it said I already have it.  I don't know what to do02:16
filifunkyany pointers?02:17
filifunkytomreyn should i get rid of it and reinstall it?02:18
tomreynfilifunky: the PPA provides a pre-built  rednotebook package. after adding the PPA as documented on the page i pointed you to you'd install the package using    sudo apt install rednotebook02:18
filifunkytomreyn ok it says i already have it so maybe its just screwed in a way that I should just remove it then reinstall?02:19
tomreynfilifunky: if you still prefer building this software, which is not part of ubuntu, and thus not really a support topic here, yourself, you could try to understand how thie packaghe in this PPa is being built by inspecting its build log at https://launchpadlibrarian.net/478204585/buildlog_ubuntu-focal-amd64.rednotebook_2.19-0~202005040933~ubuntu20.04.1_BUILDING.txt.gz02:19

matsamanif your password is a traditional dumb password with all sorts of dumb special chars, you might need to escape certain chars in it07:42
blogtenso, during boot time, I see in passing a message about ln failing to do something about an lvm volume.  this does not result in any observable issue with the volume, which later mounts automatically (because it's listed in fstab by UUID).  strangely, the error message is not anywhere I can see (e.g. grep through /var/log does not find anything).07:45
blogtenthe message is on the screen for just a moment, it seems to point to somewhere in /run or /tmp (of course, grep finds nothing there either).  the problem seems to be that ln for some reason tries a path with two consecutive slashes, '//', in something related to a hook script for the volume.  where should I look for this?07:45

SirNapkin1334hello. i came from #lubuntu as i was recommended here by a guy who ran out of ideas (he did help me make some progress though). i have a live & persistent lubuntu usb, and i checked the iso, it's fine. used rufus to install. check disc in the lubuntu installer also says that everything is good. however, when I try to "try lubuntu" it only shows the lubuntu gui loading screen for a moment,...08:11
SirNapkin1334...then it kicks me to a shel08:11
SirNapkin1334ash shell i think08:11
SirNapkin1334also, the shell is extremely bugged; ctrl+c doesn't work08:11
SirNapkin1334exit also doesn't work; the first time you run it it fails and the second time you run it it crashes the pc with a kernal panic08:12
SirNapkin1334this is a pc with no gpu btw, just using integrated / onboard graphics. no internal disk either, which is why i'm doing persistence08:12
matsamanSirNapkin1334: what's your overall goal? Installing Lubuntu?08:12
SirNapkin1334well, using it from persistent storage08:13
SirNapkin1334this is not a permanent setup. i'm just testing something08:13
SirNapkin1334*some stuff08:13
SirNapkin1334also i have nothing to install lubuntu to, lol. no spare external drives that aren't sd/usb flash08:13
CQ2SirNapkin1334, if oyu want to experiement, install it to a VirtualBox VM maybe?08:14
SirNapkin1334no, i'm testing it on the hardware08:14
SirNapkin1334it's just that lubuntu is the most lightweight thing I can find that has a GUI08:14
blogtennvidia card?08:14
SirNapkin1334no card08:14
matsamanyou can install to USB08:14
matsamanall storage is just storage to GNU/Linux08:14
SirNapkin1334yes but i heard installing to USB was not very good08:15
matsamanit's fine08:15
matsamananyway what version of Lubuntu?08:15
SirNapkin1334hmm. so i would just put lubuntu installer on ad rive, and plug in another usb and install it onto that?08:15
matsamanyou could, yes, although that would still require the installer to work08:16
matsamanyou can get a Lubuntu install from almost any Ubuntu installer08:16
SirNapkin1334yeah, the installer was bugging out too08:16
matsamanit's basically just a package set08:16
matsaman'lubuntu-desktop', IIRC08:16
SirNapkin1334my computer only has 1024MB of ram though, so an install would have to be mindful of that08:16
matsamanprobably easier to consume if you install Ubuntu with no DE, then install lubuntu-desktop, rather than installing Ubuntu with a desktop and replacing it08:16
matsamanI don't think the installer will care how much ram you have08:17
SirNapkin1334how would i go about doing that? just get an ubuntu server installer and then install the dekstop packages?08:17
matsamanyou could try lubuntu-1908:17
matsamanfor an easy trial of simply another version08:17
matsamanSirNapkin1334: maybe, let's see...08:18
matsamanSirNapkin1334: maybe the 'minimal' version: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD08:18
matsamanI'm sure using the server version would also work, but you might have to do a fair amount of reconfiguring08:18
SirNapkin1334ah okay i'm not up for that lol08:18
matsamanprobably you can do the minimal, and08:19
matsamaneither don't install a DE, then install lubuntu-desktop08:19
matsamanor if it offers Lubuntu as an option, you could try that and it might work08:19
SirNapkin1334okay so i can just install that to a usb or somthing and then install it to another usb plugged into the computer?08:19
matsamanif it's what I think it is, it's a cli/TUI installer, so it likely won't encounter the graphics problem you're encountering now08:19
matsamanyeah if you've got two08:20
matsamantechnically you can do it with one USB stick and install to the same one, but that's a little less straightforward08:20
SirNapkin1334oh dear, should i pick PC or PowerPC installer?08:20
matsamanum, probably amd6408:20
matsamanSirNapkin1334: what's the processor?08:20

seven-elevenis it a bad idea to use unattended-upgrades? should I better do this manually?08:24
* matsaman shrugs08:24
CQ2seven-eleven, I would definitely do it for security updates.08:24
CQ2More depends on if you are running a critical server or a simple desktp08:25
matsamanif your manual upgrade process involves testing that the system will work after the upgrade but before you execute the upgrade (that is, with a secondary copy of the install)08:25
matsamanthen that's pretty cool08:25
matsamanbut most people don't do that08:25
CQ2for a critical server you probably want to do it manually, for a desktop you can do it automatically08:25
matsamanso the only question is whether you're going to feel bad if something breaks with an unattended upgrade while you're not readily available08:25
matsamanor not08:25
seven-eleveni see, so maybe i should remove it from my critical server then08:26
seven-elevenbecause i noticed my computer reboots sometimes out of nowhere and reading the logs i suspect unattended-upgrade to cause the reboot08:26
matsamanhrmm, not familiar with it enough08:26
matsamanwouldn't use for critical server, no08:27
seven-eleventhere's an option to disable it "Unattended-Upgrade::Automatic-Reboot "false";" but if I disable i need a notification to know when I should reboot or maybe I should reboot every month, but then I can also do upgrades manually08:27
matsamanyou need to keep track of available upgrades, yes08:28
seven-elevenbest option would be to keep using it but get a notification when a reboot has been done :-)08:28
matsamansounds like something that would be in an Ubuntu server faq08:28

StupidLikeAFoxSo, having an issue trying to use xubuntu 18.04.3 LTS LiveUSB to image a windows machine and not sure why it isn't working15:07
ikoniagive details then15:09
StupidLikeAFox"sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=/media/xubuntu/<uuid>/foo.img" returns the error "dd: failed to open '/media/xubuntu/<uuid>/foo.img': Read-only file system"15:09
ikoniacan you write to that mount point ?15:09
StupidLikeAFoxsda is a drive with misc partitions as windows saw fit to make for itself, the drive I listed just has a large BTRFS partition on it, made with gparted from this usb stick earlier15:11
ikoniacan you mount to /media/xubuntu/$uuid15:11
StupidLikeAFoxI don't think I follow then- I made the parition myself, and that's where it showed up when I mounted it15:12
StupidLikeAFoxI'm sure I'm overlooking something basic here.15:13
ikoniaso there is the problem15:13
ikoniayou can't write to the target....why ?15:13
ikoniawhatis' mount there, what is the file system, what is the permissions on that file system, why can't you write to the target file system15:13
StupidLikeAFoxit looks like live user, the group xubuntu, and others all have read/write access- and in thunar I can copy one of the meta files off it, but not paste a file in15:15
ikoniawhat do you mean it looks like the live user15:15
ikoniayou're using sudo to act as the root user15:16
ikoniaso I ask again a.) what is mounted on that mount point b.) what is the file system c.) what is the permisions15:16
StupidLikeAFoxthe drive with a btfrs partion on it, read+write for all users it looks like15:17

nael_nA very old laptop of mine cannot boot from USB, PXE, and its optical drive is dead. I'm trying to install 20.04 on it. Since it can only boot from its internal HDD, I've removed its HDD, prepared a partition with the 20.04 ISO on it, and now I'm trying to install GRUB on the HDD, so that when I boot with the disk back into the old laptop, I can15:29
nael_npoint GRUB to the 20.04 ISO, and GRUB will boot it. But I'm not sure how to install GRUB on a disk... Right now it's connected to my newer laptop over a USB-to-SATA adapter. Is it just "sudo grub-install /dev/sdb"?15:29
nael_nI really don't want to mess up my laptop's GRUB by mistake. I just want to install GRUB to what is an external HDD, from the point of view of my laptop.15:31
floogyHi, I got a device which may gets too old and therefor unreliable. What do you think on clearing errors in zpool status? Will they get avoided in zfs despite one will clear the errors? https://bpa.st/S6IA15:42
hyppafacehow can i become an admin of a (different) channel on freenode? is it possible?15:42
akemhyppaface, Ask on #freenode instead.15:43
floogysmartmontools are not working good on the SAMSUNG hd400ld (targa, lidl, jmicron prolific PL2507)  external usb drive. https://bpa.st/VKXA15:45
floogyI currently try to get the bad blocks on that drive and eventually try to do a btrfsck on the btrfs pool. floogy@ubuntu-SSD1:~$ time sudo badblocks -n /dev/sdk15:48
nael_nDo I need an EFI manager on my external hard disk's EFI System Partition before I install GRUB to that external hard disk? I didn't think about that15:48
INSANUis there any official ppa for lunarg (vulkan, etc) packages?16:09
ikoniadefine official16:10
INSANUhttps://packages.lunarg.com/ <- this mentions ubuntu 18 and 16. I am hoping there is a ubuntu 20 as well16:10
ikoniaINSANU: so talk to the maintainers16:11
INSANUI don't know exactly how can I contact them. I tought would be easier asking here haha. Do you have this packages yourself?16:12
ikoniawhy would it be easier here16:12
ikoniapeople in here have nothing to do with that repo16:12
sonicwindjoin #lotuscomputers16:14
INSANUthere is 1268 people in the channel, which I believe a part of it play games in linux. Why wouldn't be a good place to ask this?16:14
ikoniaINSANU: because even if they play games, they won't be the maintainer/developer of that repo16:14
INSANUbut people may know about it anyways, since they may have installed the package on their system in order to play games =D16:15
ikoniajust contact the maintainer, ask them when the Ubuntu 20.X packages will be offered16:15
INSANUso, let me ask a different question. Hey guys, do you guys use any other ppa than the lunarg one to get the vulkan sdk?16:16
INSANUnot talking to you bud16:17
ikoniayou're asking the channel16:17
ikoniaI'm responding telling you I don't16:17
ikoniawhy don't you just contact the maintainer16:17

pavlosfrad: top 5 memory processes ... ps -eo pmem,pcpu,vsize,pid,cmd | sort -k 1 -nr | head -518:19
quadrathoch2electricityZZZZ make sure you have a mtp package installed18:19
electricityZZZZwhat is the precise package name?18:19
electricityZZZZis it mtp-tools?18:20
tomreynthis may be libmtp918:22
nael_nOK I think I've got the command to install GRUB and the EFI binary to an external hard drive, wish me luck, I'm going all in: sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/mnt/efi-system-partition --boot-directory=/mnt/system/boot --removable. I've got a good feeling about it. What could possibly go wrong?18:22
fradpavlos, is 'ps -eo pmem,pcpu,vsize,pid,cmd | sort -k 1 -nr | head -5' a command?18:23
pavlosfrad, yes, from a terminal, htop has sort by and filter18:24
electricityZZZZUnhandled error: The name 1.265 was not handled by any .service files18:24
quadrathoch2nael_n when your other system is as old as you meantioned, it shouldn't be using efi18:24
electricityZZZZi installed mpt-tools18:24
electricityZZZZmtp-tools, pardon18:25
quadrathoch2hm did you test as tomreyn suggested libmtp9?18:25
electricityZZZZi installed gmtp. i'll try libmtp9 now.18:26
tomreynmtp-tools depends on the library, so this should be fine18:26
nael_nquadrathoch2: it does, it was one of the first ones, as a matter of fact. 2008. But it's a wonky, incomplete implementation, not UEFI 2.x. I expect my efforts to be in vain, and have to revert to BIOS compatibility mode18:26
electricityZZZZlibmtp9 is already installed and the newest version, 1.1.17-318:27
electricityZZZZit was "working better" before i installed mtp stuff. i managed to transfer one file,... and then got problems after that18:27
tomreynand those problems are?18:30

stan_man_canHi. I installed 20.04 and used the "experimental ZFS on root partition" option. I installed it to a 120GB SSD. I have plugged another 250GB SSD into the system. Is there any way for me to add it so it's one big storage block?18:34
quadrathoch2stan_man_can with zfs that's not possible18:35
quadrathoch2except you add another vdev, but then it's not in the same block18:35
quadrathoch2(as far as I understand you)18:35
stan_man_canso I can't just expand the main "drive" ?18:35
quadrathoch2that's one of the big negatives about zfs18:36
stan_man_cani kinda thought that was the purpse of ZFS18:36
stan_man_canguess i should have checked first18:36
stan_man_canso once a vdev is setup it can't be expanded?18:37
quadrathoch2stan_man_can yes18:40
electricityZZZZok so i installed ifuse and libimobiledevice, generally following this guide, and everything worked: https://evanwill.github.io/_drafts/notes/iphone-transfer.html18:44
quadrathoch2electricityZZZZ thanks for coming back and explaining :) hope other people are helped that way18:48
