ses1984oh boy. i went down to 1 out of 4 sticks. 1st stick made it slightly farther than all 4. 2nd stick froze about the same place but then the screen turned black shortly after freezing01:55
sarnoldses1984: heh :( those sound like bad results :(01:55
ses1984i've had a system for a long time, it was slowly starting to show problems like it wouldn't start on the first try from a cold boot, just nothing would happen, no POST codes showing on the little included 2 digit display01:57
ses1984i suspected maybe the motherboard was bad? got a brand new mobo and CPU, it's worse somehow01:58
leftyfbses1984: try #hardware01:58
sarnoldses1984: that feels a bit like problems that might come about due to failing capacitors, but that's just my wild speculation02:01

forthewinhi guys. I converted an rpm to deb and installed Oracle, but when I try to run "Get Started" or "Run SQL Command Line" i get permission denied, help please?02:28
sarnoldforthewin: which rpm did you convert? with which tool? did you have any trouble installing it? what is "oracle"? (they make a few thousand products..)02:31
forthewinsarnold: oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm with alien02:32
forthewinsarnold: no trouble installing it worked fine02:32
forthewinsarnold: it's oracle 11g02:33
sarnoldforthewin: check the /var/lib/dpkg/info/oracle* scripts and make sure that what they're supposed to do make sense on an ubuntu system .. rhels are pretty different, and perhaps the postinst script needs some modification02:34
forthewinsarnold: ok thank you02:40
sarnoldforthewin: if there's nothing obvious there, and there's no log files that report what the actual error is, then you'll probably have to strace it or similar02:41

ses1984i recently had some hardware problems, replaced the bad hardware (i am pretty sure anyway), but still having problems in ubuntu, it freezes shortly after booting into the OS, is there anything i can do to verify or repair the system? or reconfigure it for the new hardware?12:06
tatertotsses1984: it was freezing before and after replacing hardware? yes/no12:09
ses1984but if i boot into windows i was able to burn-in test with furmark and prime95, no problems12:10
ses1984memtest ran for 8 hours no problems12:10
tatertotsses1984: what hardware was replaced?12:10
ses1984my current theory is that the old bad hardware messed up the operating system, so even after replacing the bad hardware, still having problems in the os12:10
ses1984cpu and motherboard were replaced, moved from intel to amd architecture12:10
tatertotsses1984: does it freeze when using LiveDVD/LiveUSB installation media?12:13
ses1984at this point im not even certain the hardware was ever bad?12:13
ses1984not sure, didn't use it for more than a few minutes at a time in liveusb12:13
prappl93ses1984, were you experiencing issues in Windows as well before hand or just on Ubuntu? Also, what graphics card are you using in case that's the culprit as well12:14
tatertotsses1984: keep that LiveUSB/LiveDVD handly, you'll need it12:14
ses1984i am pretty sure i was experiencing issues in windows prior to replacing the hardware but i didn't keep detailed notes. i use both operating systems pretty regularly and i didn't keep detailed notes, i'm not certain of my memories12:15

krumelmonsterHi. I want to install a laptop in a "kiosk" mode where no user action is persistent across reboots. Is it a good idea to mount /home/kiosk as tmpfs (or zram?) and additionally create a big on-the-fly encrypted swap? Will the kernel be smart enough to not overflow RAM with what's in the home tmpfs but instead start swapping from tmpfs soon enough?14:56

oerheksand restart the ssh service..17:47

oerheksit is all in the wiki17:47
prappl93Then it'll prompt for the password just to verify it's configured properly17:47

bumblefuzzbut it also is in the working machine17:52
bumblefuzzI've never seen anything like this17:53
prappl93Are you sure you don't have the wrong terminal session open when you're trying to ssh in after copying the key? Like, you're not copying it from Box A to Box C, then ssh'd in to Box B trying to get to C are you?17:53
EriC^^bumblefuzz: did you restart your sshd after editing /etc/sshd_config on the server?17:53
bumblefuzzso, technically, I haven't made any changes to the sshd config yet17:54
bumblefuzzif the key authentication is working, it shouldn't prompt me for a password17:54

bumblefuzzsame as on the working machine17:55
EriC^^bumblefuzz: try on the server, chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys17:57

EriC^^it's good though that you did so, just trying to make sure the permissions and whatnot is setup right, then we can move on to other stuff17:59

bumblefuzzwhat's the reasoning there?18:09
EriC^^bumblefuzz: yup, it's just the standards of ssh18:10
elgesarnold, thanks, I just had the wrong extension, .cfg instead of .yaml...18:11
bumblefuzzI assume 700 then on all higher folders, as well?18:12
bumblefuzzI don't have a lot of practice with permissions18:12
sarnold755 for / /home and /home/bumblefuzz are all fine; you might want to make your homedir more restrictive if you never share anything with other users on hte system18:13
EriC^^bumblefuzz: yeah that's a good practice, i think by default ubuntu creates a home dir with r-x as the "others", so everybody can read a person's home dir18:13

tatertotszetheroo: or same PC , DIFFERENT SIM, same modem, and test18:47
tatertotszetheroo: ...process of elimination18:47

zetherooerror: couldn't enable the modem: 'GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.ModemManager1.Error.Core.WrongState: modem in failed state'18:49
tatertotszetheroo: try a different sim, if it's the same error, a different modem would be the next thing i would try18:50
zetherooseems like the firmware v1.1 is buggy https://zukota.com/sierra-wireless-em7345-how-to-flash-the-latest-firmware/18:50
zetherooI need to upgrade to firmware 1.2 ... but for that I need Windowz :/18:51

oerhekszetheroo, we have fwupdate tools now18:55
oerheksi would not risk it with virtualbox18:55
zetheroooerheks: do you think that should work with updating my boradband modem fw?18:56
oerhekszetheroo, oh, not internal components?18:56
oerheksno clue then, check the vendor.18:57
zetheroo oerheks: yes, it internal18:57

PonyToastHey guys. I'm trying out Linux again, starting with Ubuntu. Installed it onto an external drive without errors, but now when I log in it goes black and returns to the login.19:21
c59fdbdcfe7cPonyToast: nvidia?19:21
jilocasinodd apt-get update question.  Just installed ubuntu server 18.04.5 on seven VM's.  Same settings.  First auso apt-get update hits 18 repos, then on some machines subsequent ones hit 8 and the others 4.  Why is that?19:21
PonyToastI think this is the gdm3 bug for nvidia but I'm not sure how to install the right driver from terminal.19:22
sarnoldjilocasin: it might be worthwhile to compare the output of "apt policy" on all the systems to make sure they really are the same19:27
aguitelany graphic photo viewer to heic (iphone photos )19:29
ioriaaguitel, do you mean 'heif' ?19:30
aguitelioria, appears .heic19:31
PonyToastI can't get it of this login loop19:31
sarnoldaguitel: install heif-gdk-pixbuf then try gpicview or pcmanfm19:31
jilocasinsarnold: k, lots of 100 & 500 lines.19:31
PonyToastReinstalling hasnt helped. Not sure what to do now. I set grub to "quiet" and removed splash. Also didn't work with "nomodset"19:32
aguitelsarnold, will try19:32
jilocasinsarnold: no maention in the man page or via google (lots of apt-cache policy hits though).19:34
PonyToastOk so I followed the official answer here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/223501/ubuntu-gets-stuck-in-a-login-loop19:41
PonyToastBut when I do chown username:username.Xauthority it gives me this error:19:42
PonyToastChown: missing operand after 'myusername:myusername.Xauthority'19:42
jilocasinPonyToast: I think you might be missing a space.19:43
jilocasinIt's chown owner:group file19:44
aguitelsarnold,thanks it works19:44
jilocasinPonyToast: if you are tryon to change the ownership on a file named .Xauthority it needs to be: chown username:username .Xauthority19:45
PonyToastOk. Did that, no error this time. Main issue still there though, it keeps looping me to login19:46
PonyToastGoing to try the second answer and see if it works19:47
Bashing-om!nomodeset | PonyToast Nvidia ?19:47
ubottuPonyToast Nvidia ?: Systems with certain graphics chipsets may not boot properly out of the box. "Temporarily Add a Kernel Boot Parameter for Testing" as discussed at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBootParameters to add the "nomodeset" parameter there.19:47
PonyToastNomodeset? Oof, I followed instructions that had me change it to "nomodset"19:49
PonyToastLet me check it19:49
ComputerTechhmm, just curious19:50
ComputerTechdoes anyone have any personal tips of freeing memory?19:50

amazoniantoadI'm trying to run xen hypervisor on ubuntu 20.04 but I can't seem to get it to boot. Has anyone else had this issue?20:09
bougymanSo, when I use startx from tty1 to start my X session, gnome-terminal doesn't run.20:12
bougymanUbuntu 20.04LTS brand new install.20:12
bougymangnome-terminal ran fine under the default DE20:12
oerheksi think 20.04/gnome uses GDM ?20:12
bougymanno error, when I run it from a terminal, it just hangs and never returns anything until I ctrl-c20:12
oerheksstartx is the old way20:12
bougymanoerheks: I disabled gdm.20:12
oerheksoh, not worth to mention?20:12
* oerheks walks away20:13
bougymanI don't need a display manager for this. It's a virtualbox instance. I run it on my mac cause I can't stand using macos (work machine)20:13
amazoniantoadXen is in the Ubuntu 20.04 repository but for whatever reason it just doesn't work. It's so weird20:13
bougymanI suppose I could have gdm start stumpwm for me (my window manager), but I'm just trying to find out why it's necessary.20:14
bougymancan gnome-terminal only run in a gnome session or something?20:14
bougymanthere's where it is when I ctrl-c20:15
bougymanmaybe there's some debug flag...20:15
bougymansame thing with gnome-terminal -vvvvvvvvvvvvvv20:16
bougymanOOH NICE, I got a new message with that: # Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached20:16

ChmEarlamazoniantoad, I have working xen installs for xen-4.12 and xen-4.14. The distro xen-4.11 is dated Mar 2020, too old20:31
ChmEarlamazoniantoad, in focal20:32
howellHow would I find which apt package an application came from? e.g. "ping" comes from "iputils-ping"20:32
=== quasineutral4 is now known as quasineutral
amazoniantoadChmEarl, What does this imply? That xen isn't up to date?20:45
rypervenchehowell: Normally you could do: dpkg -S $(which ping) , but the ping you should be looking for is /bin/ping in this case.20:46
rypervencheSo dpkg -S /bin/ping20:46
ChmEarlamazoniantoad, upstream xen released an important patch on June 7 which fixed a big issue in focal20:46

jeniaI'm going through a tutorial devstack and there have a section where they create authorized keys: https://docs.openstack.org/devstack/latest/guides/multinode-lab.html#set-up-ssh21:29

sarnoldjenia: that's a comment field, to help you keep track of which username / server has the private portion of the key21:33
jeniaok thanks21:36
jeniayou know, running the devstack script (which downloads tones of packages and so on) has caused me to go overboard on my internet limit by like 75%21:37

hugottyHi, my ubuntu server that functions as my inernet gateway suddenly became unreachable today. The system was still running, just not reachable over the network. After hard resetting I tried to find out what happened from /var/log/syslog but it seems like the system just stopped logging after it became unreachable. Is there any way to find out what21:48
sarnoldhugotty: was there anything on the monitor? quite often a message will be printed there when the kernel panics21:49
tatertotshugotty: store logs in some other separate location rsyslog21:49
tatertotshugotty: that way you have logs when something belly up21:50
tatertotshugotty: as it stands..you have no log of the events21:50
hugottyI wasn't able to hook up a monitor :( But I have moved the box to somewhere else now so I can do it next time21:51
hugottyPretty sure it will happen again as it has already happened twice today21:52
hugottytatertots: what do you mean exactly? I still have the logs, they just have a hole in them after a certain time21:53
hugottyand then they continue from the moment after the hard reset21:54

ckbhey guys, how do I go about creating a php script as a server in Ubuntu 20.04?\22:55
ckbAs a daemon... I mean22:56
ckb... /etc/init/*.conf?22:57
MI6ckb: What do you mean? Have you tried 'php <filename> & disown' ?22:57
tacomasterI have https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2449677&page=1 thread open but I have some questions. How do I apply the StartupWMClass= in the .desktop file23:04
ckbMI6, I'm sorry. Not through CLI.23:04
ckbWait. Wrong channel. I want it to run as a daemon.23:05
MI6ckb: Try 'nohup php <filename> &'. Or if you want the output logged to a file, use 'nohup php filename > output.log'.23:07
MI6Oh you want /etc/init23:08
MI6My bad23:08
ckbMI6 what if the script fatals? I need it to restart. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2036654/run-php-script-as-daemon-process23:08
MI6ckb: This stackoverflow thread https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2036654/run-php-script-as-daemon-process23:10
MI6It could be helpful23:10
MI6I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to do23:10
ckbMI6, that's what I just pasted :)23:11
MI6Oh sorry :)23:11
* MI6 tired23:11
ckb<3 thanks for the help23:12
MI6ckb: I'd try the second answer. I usually just use nohup though.23:13
MI6It's easier.23:13
ckbWell nohup will restart it? how do I start it on boot?23:13
sarnoldckb: if you want a thing to start on boot, restart when it dies, etc, then it's probably best to write a systemd service file for it https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/systemd#Writing_unit_files23:13
MI6ckb: I don't think there is any way to do that with nohup. You need a systemd service for it.23:14
ckbsarnold, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.23:14
sarnoldckb: on problem with systemd is that the guides for doing things are either too simplistic or far too detailed; I don't yet know a simple guide to writing a good service file :( but hopefully you can find what you need ..23:16
ckbI literally need an extremely simplistic systemd that runs "php /path/file.php" on startup and as a service23:17
