TaralloHi guys01:44
TaralloI need an help with wine01:44
TaralloI've a 4k monitor on my Dell and when I start every Wine application like Battle.net for example, it looks in a bad resolution01:46
TaralloI show youa pictures01:46
sarnolddoes this look like what you posted? https://i.ibb.co/GvNcyDw/Schermata-da-2020-06-25-03-43-06.png01:48
sarnoldit's only a few hundred pixels, I can't read anything there, and could only guess at three or four of the icons :)01:48
Tarallowhat do you mean? can't you reconize anything of the picture?01:50
sarnoldyou said you've got a 4k monitor but that image is 640x360 pixels01:50
sarnoldso I'm curious if the screenshot is *actually* that size01:50
sarnoldor if this image host has done something silly :)01:51
Tarallohaha wait maybe is the host01:51
Tarallowhere can I share it to show you?01:51
Tarallotell me a good hosting site to share it please01:52
Tarallook thx01:53
Taralloworks now?01:56
sarnoldoh yeah! that's beautiful01:57
Tarallohaha nice, like you see it has a very bad resolution01:58
Tarallocompared with the rest of course01:58
sarnoldcertainly the text is a bit tiny compared to eg the date and time, temperature, title bars, etc01:59
sarnoldTarallo: can you run winecfg to fix it?02:00
Tarallosure, but on winecfg I already raised up the DPI02:01
Taralloand if you can see from this other screenshot they are completely different in resolution02:02
Tarallo@sarnold Still there?02:10
sarnoldTarallo: yeah02:12
TaralloIf you see I posted another screen02:12
sarnoldTarallo: I don't actually know the winecfg tool, I just heard that you could set the DPI within it.. I'd guess the grafica tab perhaps?02:20
Tarallo@sarnold: Do you mean Graphics Tab of my System?02:25
sarnoldTarallo: yes02:26
TaralloIt is already set to the right resolution for my monitor: 3840 x 2160 (16:9)02:27
TaralloItried also to set to a less resolution like 2560 x 1440 but the app is always in that bad resolution02:29
sarnoldTarallo: bummer :( sorry, that was all I had :(02:35
Tarallooh, ok, thanks then02:36
TaralloI thin that a VM will solve the problem02:36
Tarallowith Windows emulated of course02:37
Tarallowhat do you thunk?02:37
sarnoldhopefully there's something less drastic :)02:37
sarnoldthere is a #winehq channel -- they may have suggestions02:38
sarnold(it might also start with "uninstall the wine you're using now", hehe)02:38
Jordan_UTarallo: What version of Ubuntu are you using? I second the recommendation to ask in #winehq , and they will probably want you to follow https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu to install the latest upstream version, which for HiDPI support is probably a good idea.02:41
TaralloJordan_U I really thank you, but I'm thinking now that a better solution would be to install a VM with Windows and it will be more compatible with everything02:43
TaralloAnd thank you sarnold for your time02:44
lp2skylineHi I just installed Ubuntu, I have audio with speakers that are built in my laptop, but when I plug headphones in, no sound02:52
lotuspsychje!sound | lp2skyline start here03:18
ubottulp2skyline start here: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - https://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.03:18
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: see also pavucontrol to debug sound issues03:18
lp2skylinelotuspsychje, pavucontrol shows the headphones as being plugged in but nothing comes out03:20
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: sudo lshw -C sound, shows driver loaded?03:20
lp2skylineyeah. The speakers work fine03:21
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: do you have other sound hardware that could interfere?03:23
lp2skylineNo. This same setup works in every other distro I've used.03:23
lp2skylineIt's a very basic setup. It's just a laptop sound chip03:24
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: allrighty, wich ubuntu/kernel version is this please?03:24
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: did you sound work on other versions/kernels of ubuntu before?03:25
lp2skylineYes from what I recall. I don't remember which but I did run Ubuntu for a good while on this machine.03:25
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: ok tnx, could you share your dmesg in a pastebin please?03:26
lp2skylinelotuspsychje, the entire thing?03:27
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: yes plz03:28
lp2skylinehttps://pastebin.com/freYdDZH lotuspsychje03:28
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: what kind of graphics in your alienware?03:36
lp2skylineGTX 107003:36
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: nvidia-smi to check wich driver loaded please?03:37
lp2skylineit's nouveau.03:37
lp2skylineNever caused an issue before, though.03:37
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: oh, is that a hybrid card with intel?03:38
lp2skylinelotuspsychje, no, pure Nvidia.03:39
lp2skylineIt's complicated to explain, the Nvidia card is directly connected to the screen though.03:39
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: ok, lets try 2 things, try to switch to nvidia driver to see if it influences your sound, and try a previous kernel version too as a test03:40
lp2skylineI just installed Ubuntu 3 hours ago, there is no previous kernel :P03:40
lp2skylinelemme go switch to Nvidia though.03:40
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: i found snd_hda_intel 0000:01:00.1: Disabling MSI03:41
lotuspsychjebut not sure its related to your mic03:41
lp2skylinelotuspsychje, same thing03:42
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: need to reboot for graphics switch03:42
lp2skylineExcept I can adjust my brightness now, which is nice :P03:42
lp2skylineI did reboot o.o03:42
lp2skylineI unmuted my mic and the headphones started having sound03:43
lotuspsychje: )03:43
lp2skylineHow are those 2 correlated?????03:43
lp2skylineThe mic is muted again and I still have sound03:44
lotuspsychjethat happens when graphics influence HD sound03:44
lp2skylineI'm so confused but it works now so I'm fine03:44
lp2skylineThank you!03:44
lotuspsychjewelcome lp2skyline03:45
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: you might also check your cpu in bios, dmesg showing cpu rises03:45
lp2skylineOh don't worry that's normal.03:45
lotuspsychjeok :p03:45
lp2skylineYou mean the temps right? That's normal.03:46
lp2skylineThis model is notorious for awful temps I have to cap them with thermald03:46
lotuspsychjemce: CPU0: Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 2767)03:46
lp2skylineYeah it hits 100C often03:46
lotuspsychjelp2skyline: anyway, might be nice to find yourself a nouveau/sound bug to get affected on03:46

sonataaaughto be absolutely clear, i'm not trying to do anything _fancy_04:55
sonataaaughi just want it to wipe the entire physical device clean and install ubuntu and nothing else04:56
sonataaaughi don't want to preserve my existing anything and i don't want to set up dual-boot04:56

sonataaaughIt seemed to install normally, but when I tried to boot I got:04:57
sonataaaughBooting `Load Operating System'04:57
sonataaaughFailed to boot both default and fallback entries.04:57
sonataaaughGoogled that, got directed to grub-customize, which also failed.04:58

egrainhow do i change the nameserver via terminal. /etc/resolv.conf is just a link as you probably know and in the /run/resolve.. thing is just some systemd stuff.07:34
byroniacegrain, I am not sure but would "man systemd-resolved" help you any?07:37
byroniacIf you are were using netplan you could do some things in it, and on Ubuntu 20.04 there is this server help: https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/network-configuration07:40
egrainthis is really weird: PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.  /    From icmp_seq=1 Destination Net Unreachable07:40
egraini ping but get no reply rom 62.155?07:41
byroniacWhat do you mean "from"?07:42
egrainhere, check it out:07:43
byroniacI cannot get anything back when I ping either address07:43
ducasseegrain: it means is on the route to, but has no route for that network07:45
egrainthings i never knew.07:45
egrainit's my nameserver there though.07:45
egrainhow do i change it?07:45
egrainin terminal07:46
ducasse"Destination Net Unreachable" means "i have no route for that"07:46
byroniacwell, there is probably a much better way than the way I do it07:46
egrainelsewhere i edit /etc/resolv.conf.07:47
egrainsystemd seems weird.07:47
byroniacfirst what do you get when you do "nslookup"07:47
egrain162.243.155.62.in-addr.arpaname = p3e9bf3a2.dip0.t-ipconnect.de.07:49
egrainAuthoritative answers can be found from: .... nothing, it seems.07:49
egrainyeah, returns straight back to terminal.07:50
byroniacOn my Ubuntu 20.04 /etc/resolv.conf actually points to /run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf so what I do is cd to /run/systemd/resolve/ and I do a "cp -v stub-resolv.conf stub-resolv.conf.save" and then do a "sudo nano stub-resolv.conf" and change the to some public DNS like or There has got to be a better way, though. But I am on NetworkManager not netplan.07:50
egrainbyroniac, sudoedit is better.07:50
byroniacI mean "sudo cp -v stub-resolv.conf stub-resolv.conf.save" in that folder07:50
egraininstead of sudo nano.07:50
byroniacoh, thank you. I didn't know about it07:51
egrainjust some security thing.07:51
egrainanyway, fumbling about with internal systemd files doesn't seem like a good idea to me.07:51
egrainespecially since i need that machine running the next reboot as well, without me editing it again.07:52
byroniacI have a CLI VPN client that clobbers my /etc/resolv.conf with one it creates and I have to keep recreating the symlink (arrrghhh)07:52
byroniacyes I agree07:52
byroniacHmmm hang on07:52
byroniacI think you can do this in the Settings | Network GUI07:53
byroniacsudo nm-connection-edit if you are on NetworkManager like I am07:53
byroniac"sudo nmcli" has a lot more CLI options07:54
ducassebyroniac: you can be on both NetworkManager and netplan, netplan just generates configs to be rendered by nm or networkd07:54
byroniacoh ok07:55
ducasseegrain: if you are using nm there is a way to input additional dns servers07:55
egraini don't know what i'm using. the default stuff.07:56
egraini didn't cahnge anything.07:56
egrainnm seems to be thee though.07:56
byroniacok it's late for me. bye all. have fun.07:57
ducasseegrain: do you have any files in /etc/netplan/?07:57
egrainit's network manager i have it there, in german no less07:58
egrain"kabelgebundene Verbindung". it's everything in there.07:59
egraini'll edit it and do systemctl restart networkmanager?07:59
egrainrestart nm?07:59
egrainwhat do i restart?07:59
egrainanyway, thanks.08:01
egrainping evilemp... i mean google works.08:01
ducasseyou don't need to use caps in the service name08:01
egrainoh, if i do .server after, you mean?08:02
egrainbecause sudo systemctl restart networkmanager / Failed to restart networkmanager.service: Unit networkmanager.service not found.08:02
egrainthat worked though: sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager08:02
ducassethere's a - in the first one08:08

funnybunny2I have Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. Has kernel 5.4 been released?10:55
funnybunny2I want to upgrade to 20.04 LTS. Are there any issues? Is it better to do a wipe and clean install?10:57
lotuspsychje!ltsupgrade | funnybunny211:00
ubottufunnybunny2: Regular upgrades from 18.04 LTS to 20.04 LTS will be enabled once 20.04.1 is released in late July. This delay helps to ensure that any lingering issues are resolved before people upgrade production systems. If you'd prefer to upgrade now, use sudo do-release-upgrade -d11:00
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: before 20.04.1 comes out there are to-solve bugs still, but that doesnt mean you cant run 20.04 propermy yet, its the users choice you see11:01
funnybunny2Oh, I thought 20.04 was already stable because it is the primary download on the website.11:03
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: stable yes, but its the users choice to install before point release or after11:04
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: it really depends what you find important?11:04
funnybunny2I don't understand11:04
funnybunny2I will just wait. Not in a hurry11:05
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: the lts way is like this, 18.04 users can upgrade when 20.04.1 comes out, when more bugs are solved, to have a great lts experience11:05
funnybunny2I wonder if I will have a more polluted filesystem than someone doing a clean install of 20.0411:06
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: nothing can beat clean installs11:06
funnybunny2I think I will just do a clean install11:07
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: but upgrades work pretty good too, in condition the user himself maintained his system properly11:07
funnybunny2I had a bad upgrade experience 10 years ago11:07
lotuspsychjefunnybunny2: 1 bad experience doesnt have to occur on the next experience11:08
funnybunny2Yeah, you're right. I guess I will try to upgrade first since that is easier11:09

rajivmarscoconut: is it touch the kernel as well?14:10
coconutrajivmars, i am not sure, i guess not... but i would wait on someone who can tell you.14:13

coconutor google a little on that command14:14
rajivmarscocnut: i have read about it but i m confused of doing it or not. i have also read the same on ask ubuntu but i m afraid of doing it.14:16

ubottuAkuw: libreswan (source: libreswan): Internet Key Exchange daemon. In component universe, is optional. Version 3.29-2build1 (focal), package size 922 kB, installed size 4075 kB15:41
coconutapt says: "Libreswan has been forked from Openswan 2.6.38, which was forked from15:41
coconut FreeS/WAN 1.99."15:41
coconuti have no experience with it though...15:42
Akuwok, well, i have to use source code15:42
coconutAny reason for why apt-get does not upgrade packages and had kept back, while apt does upgrade(and new install some) packages?16:19
hggdhcoconut: apt... upgrade? full-upgrade? What were the options to apt you used?16:21
coconuthggdh, just normal upgrade and both without any options16:22
hggdhcoconut: apt upgrade will not install *new* packages, it will only update existing ones16:23
hggdhapt full-upgrade will do both (update existing packages, install new ones)16:23
hggdhalso apt upgrade will not install a new version of an installed package that requires the removal of another, installed, package16:24
hggdhplease see 'man apt-get' for full differences16:24
coconuthggdh, can you or someone take a look at my paste? -> https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/VykkCh325T/16:24
hggdhcoconut: this is... surprising, for me16:27
coconuthggdh, might it be caused by an instance of aptitude trying to upgrade?16:28
coconut(seeing i just tried that too)16:28
hggdhcoconut: well, I have not used aptitude for ages. I remember it had some differences on behaviour, but I really do not remember16:29
coconuthggdh, fair enough, thank you for caring, it's appreciated!16:29

TaralloHy guys16:34
TaralloI'm using Ubuntu 20.04 on my Dell 9380 and I was wondering which would be the best memory to install a VM, the internal NVME, and SD-Card or an USB?16:34
oerheksTarallo, why do you ask?16:43
avengerTarallo: the SD and USB are going to be slower than an internal NVME solution, but id depends on your needs16:45
Tarallooerheks Because I thought that if I would install it in the internal memory it should be faster and perfoming instead of an SD or USB16:46
oerheks.. interesting16:46
TaralloRight, that was my doubt :D16:46
Ketzerso i have Xubuntu 20.04 LTS (amd64) and i was thinking of installing the latest kernel.org stable kernel alongside the LTS stock kernel... if i do that and install by compiling and installing the deb packages, would autoremove mark the stock kernel for removal?16:46
TaralloThanks oerheks, I will install it in the internal NVMe16:48
v0lksmanhey all!  anyone have a guide to upgrading mysql on 20.04 from 5.7 to 8.0?16:51
v0lksmanI can't seem to get 5.7 to install on 20.0416:51
marcogmonteirohi guys, how would I go about doing an apt-mark hold of all packages that match a certain name. Like if I want to hold all PHP packages like php, php-cli and the like do I have to do that one by one?16:53
v0lksmanhonestly forgot how horrible mysql is16:54
leftyfbv0lksman: Ubuntu 20.04 has mysql-server 8.0 by default. How did you get 5.7 on it to begin with?16:58
v0lksmanleftyfb: I'm trying to get 5.7 on it so I can import a dataset and then upgrade to 816:59
leftyfbv0lksman: don't16:59
coconutthanks for the url ioria, but i think i like to stay default with that apt config about installing new packages too.17:00
leftyfbv0lksman: setup an ubuntu 16.04 lxd container and install mysql-server there to do what you need17:00
v0lksmanthen how do you get 8 on 16.04?17:02
leftyfbv0lksman: don't. dump your database from 16.04, copy it to your 20.04 and import17:03
v0lksmanthat's how this all started...#mysql is telling me I need to go through upgrade paths17:04
v0lksmanwhen I try to import my dump I get https://dpaste.org/0QBn17:05
leftyfbv0lksman: that makes no sense since most distro's aren't going to support installing across 3 major released of an application like mysql-server17:05
leftyfbv0lksman: https://www.percona.com/blog/2020/01/03/inconsistent-table-information-in-mysql-8-0-information_schema/17:06
leftyfb"The good news, though, is that information_schema_stats_expiry is session-variable so you can easily set it to zero for the applications which need up to date table information!"17:06
v0lksmanthat's what I thought...postgresql does it but they have a repo they maintain and their software will run multiple instances without collision and let you migrate between version17:06
v0lksmanleftyfb: so when I dump I should just ignore those 2 tables?17:08
skyliner_369So YouTube keeps having video playback stop while the audio keeps going, making watching certain things basically impossible. I suspect it's an issue with the nvidia driver being trash, but I can't be certain. I just know that even blender will start to lag on a basic scene far ahead of where it should... also CUDA can't see my GPU so yay.17:08

ophiHow do you remove netplan and reinstall ifup if netplan issues prevent DNS resolution  and installation of ifupdown ?17:34
leftyfbophi: what tutorial have you tried to follow so far?17:35
TaralloHi guys, I was trying to install the VM on Ubuntu 20.04 but after I started the VM comes out this popup: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/virtlxcd-sock': No such file or directory17:35
leftyfbophi: you could also just ask for help with netplan17:37
v0lksmanleftyfb: worked after ignoring a few mysql.* tables17:37
mbufWhat is a useful resource for a newbie to get started with CLI on Ubuntu?17:52
ophileftyfb: OK, how do you get name resolution working on Ubuntu 20.04 using netplan?  I created a netplan config file and was able to run netplan apply without error, but the new configuration did not apply.  I can ping gateway, but no DNS resolution.17:54
leftyfbophi: pastebin your config17:55
ophiCan't, internet isn't working.17:55
leftyfbophi: you're on the internet right now17:55
leftyfbophi: rewrite it on this machine and post it to a pastebin service17:55
ophiusing windows17:55
KunaPrimeoerheks: thanks i posted bug report17:55
leftyfbophi: also, you could probably boot into ubuntu and edit /etc/resolv.conf and temporarily get DNS working. Add: nameserver
ophileftyfb:   that, it did *NOT* work17:59
leftyfbophi: what did not work?18:00
ophileftyfb:  getting dhcp lease, no name resolution18:00
leftyfbophi: did you add an entry in /etc/resolv.conf like I said?18:00
leftyfbophi: actually, not add, just make sure it's the only entry for now18:01
rfmophi, you shouldn't be getting a dhcp lease since you're specifying a static address in the netplan...18:02
ophiThere are two files in /netplan, the 00-installer one and the one I pasted18:02
leftyfbophi: did you add an entry in /etc/resolv.conf like I said?18:02
leftyfbophi: you should not have 2 files in /etc/netplan/18:03
ophileftyfb:  with the 00-installer, I get the aforementioned.  Without it, I get no IP addresss18:03
leftyfbophi: did you add an entry in /etc/resolv.conf like I said?18:03
ophileftyfb:  I tried that before coming here.18:04
leftyfbophi: go back and try making this the only entry in /etc/resolv.conf:   nameserver
leftyfbophi: I also want you to test being able to ping
ophileftyfb:  ls18:06
=== dtux_ is now known as dtux
ophileftyfb:   Done.  With the default 00-installer script and the resolv.conf pointing to, I get a DHCP lease and can ping the gateway and ping returns ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached18:11
leftyfbophi: if you can't ping, then your gateway/router isn't functioning properly or you're pointing to the wrong gateway ip18:12
leftyfbophi: if you're on Windows now, then run "ipconfig" in a command prompt and check out the gateway ip18:13
leftyfbophi: also, in the netplan config you posted above, you forgot to add: dhcp4: false  # if you want it to be a static ip. Which you probably don't if your router isn't setup to ignore than ip range for dhcp18:15
=== benfrancis0 is now known as benfrancis
leftyfbophi: please mv one of those config files from your netplan directory. I would suggest moving your custom config out and keeping the default. Stick with dhcp for now for troubleshooting18:16
ophileftyfb: isn't valid on my network.  Should I put the correct IP in resolv.conf?18:17
leftyfbophi: is a public DNS server owned by Cloudflare. It is a valid ip address on the internet to be used as DNS18:17
sarnoldleftyfb: quite a lot of ISPs are hilarious and broke routing to it18:18
leftyfbophi: as I mentioned before, if you can't ping, then you have problems beyond DNS18:18
leftyfbophi: ok, then try to ping or or
leftyfbophi: if you can't ping any of those, then you more than likely have other issues going on beyond DNS18:19
ophileftyfb:  that's what I have, the default netplan file and the custom resolv.conf file with nameserver
leftyfbophi: are you booted to ubuntu now?18:20
=== benfrancis9 is now known as benfrancis
ophileftyfb:  it just started working.  I read an article that said the resolv.conf change can take minutes to take effect.18:24
leftyfbophi: the edit of the resolv.conf is only temporary. It also doesn't explain not being able to ping
ophileftyfb:  I woudl prefer to disable netplan.  netplan and network manager are not great IMHO.18:25
leftyfbophi: your issues are not related to netplan. Also, if you're running network manager(Desktop) then you should not be editing netplan or ifupdown at all18:26
sarnoldleftyfb: if you can ping and but not it's probably not worth much time trying to troublehsoot it -- just report it to your ISP and remind them how bad their network is18:26
v0lksmanor leave18:27
leftyfbsarnold: they have yet to confirm they can ping any other ip's. Or half of what I have asked or suggested.18:27
sarnoldleftyfb: ah. then it's probably not worth any more time at all :)18:28
ophileftyfb:  well, at least now I was able to install ifupdown, which is half way to jettisoning netplan18:28
ophileftyfb:  The ping thing is internal network security.18:29

leftyfbironpillow: that is normal18:44
leftyfbironpillow: if you want to upgrade the packages that are held back, run: sudo apt full-upgrade18:44
sarnoldit's better to suggest "apt upgrade" instead, it won't uninstall packages to satisfy the dependency solver18:45
ironpillowso should I do apt upgrade or apt install. I don't want to upgrade linux-*. I want to keep those.18:47
sarnoldironpillow: apt install netplan.io then18:48
coconutsarnold, that's why apt full-upgrade is only for optional cases.18:50

kinghatis there a tool to make a list of installed packages, snaps, flatpaks for install later?19:25
Jordan_URob_Jones: In My Humble Opinion you should focus on making sure that your web services don't have bugs in validation that lead them to be vulnerable to such attacks, rather than worrying about "stopping" bots from trying various known vulnerabilities.19:25
Rob_Jonesit doesnt19:25
Rob_Jonesapparently its a wordpress vulnerability with earlier versions - https://topherpedersen.blog/2020/02/03/afetchcontentdiemd5hellothinkcmf/19:26
sarnoldkinghat: dpkg --get-selections | dpkg --set-selections19:26
sarnoldkinghat: no idea on snaps, flatpak19:26
Jordan_URob_Jones: Then the worst those bots are doing is cluttering your logs. You can setup fail2ban to ban based on apache logs, but don't spend more time on that than auditing your own code and making sure that you're keeping all packages (and dependencies of your web services that might not be installed via apt) up to date with security updates.19:27
kinghatsarnold: dpkg: error: operation requires read/write access to dpkg status area19:27

ForeverNoob[m]hello, so I use (Mullvad) VPN and I just do "sudo openvpn config.conf", normally this lets me not only have the VPN endpoint IP but also sets the nameservers to that of the VPN. However... I was in a cafe once and I connected to my VPN that way, but now my nameservers were changed to something else. I also noticed that my /etc/resolv.conf looked like this: https://paste.debian.net/plain/115391022:43
ForeverNoob[m](notice the line which says "search thecafe")22:43
ForeverNoob[m]Mullvad support suggested that this might be systemd-resolvd working against my preferred configuration, would that be plausible?22:44
ForeverNoob[m]And if so, how would I tell systemd-resolvd to always assume the DNS servers of my VPN provider?22:45
ForeverNoob[m]Obviously this is a big issue... my DNS looked to be MITM'd and I couldn't connect to some sites over https since those servers seemed to serve me a different certificate.22:46
