lubot<Jose from mexico> The nv termbin thing was really neat00:00
ubottuThere are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup, !borg, and !cloning00:00
tomreynfor this one-time backup use case, i'd probably just use rsync or tar00:00
lubot<Jose from mexico> Thanks a lot! rsync or tar then00:01
lubot<Jose from mexico> the whole filesystem ? like rsync /00:01
tomreynrsync is a little tricky if you're not used to it, using it the first time. tar less so, it creates a single file archive.00:01
tomreynwith rsync you'd need to make sure you're writing to a compatible file system, one which knows about unix acls, like a "linux file system", so not fat or ntfs00:02
tomreynotherwise you'd loose important information about what belongs to whom etc.00:02
tomreynthat's not a problem with tar00:03
lubot<Jose from mexico> I used to backup my stuff using git...00:04
lubot<Jose from mexico> which i know its not optimal but00:04
tomreyntar czf /path/to/archive_to_create_on_backup_storage.tar.gz /path/to/directory_to_backup00:04
lubot<Jose from mexico> It was easy00:04
lubot<Jose from mexico> and space free00:04
tomreynah then you'll know how to use tar, too, i assume, or can find out.00:04
tomreynprobably rsync, too00:05
lubot<Jose from mexico> Have used rsync and tar but i do google every time i have to use them00:05
tomreyngit is primarily a versioning software, not meant for backups, but there are scenarios where you'd combine those, yes.00:06
lubot<Jose from mexico> Yeah, reading again on the subject it seems that rsync will be best to not lose lots of filesystem metadata00:06
tomreynhmm, i should head to bed, 2 am here, and i need to get some stuff done tomorrow. if you or Lue (currently gone, but wanted to return) have more questions and can't get help here, try #ubuntu, too. you will find more active people there, but point out you're using lubuntu.00:08
tomreynyou'll usually find help here, too, though, just maybe a little later.00:08
lubot<Jose from mexico> Perfect thanks a lot for your time man!!00:08
lubot<Jose from mexico> See ya!00:08
tomreynyou're welcome :) good luck.00:09
lubot<Jose from mexico> Any idea on how to know if nvidia drvers are correctly installed?00:17
LueTomreyn: I did it00:25
LueThe problem was from the virtualization00:25
LueThanks a lot for your support. It's thanks to you that I found the solution.00:29
Lueagan Thanks a lot !!! <300:32

lubot<anonid> if sending media is not allowed in this group please notify me and i will take this down12:41
lubot<anonid> i have been struck at this for many days i am really frustrated . any help would be highly appreciated12:42
tomreynanonid: still around?16:35
tomreynif so, explain what's the command you're running, and what it's meant to do, while you're getting "rsync error code 11".16:37
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> if so, explain what's the command you're running, and what it's meant …], i just installed it16:54
lubot<anonid> pressed the install lubuntu (cd button) on desktop screen16:55
lubot<anonid> then selected the language and keybotd type16:55
lubot<anonid> then selected usb insted of hdd as installation medium16:56
tomreynanonid: ah, right, i hadn't inspected your scren shots, yet, sorry16:56
tomreynhttps://discourse.lubuntu.me/t/installation-failing-error-code-11/940 suggests that your .iso may be broken. did you verify its checksum?16:56
lubot<anonid> i dont know how to do that but it runs fine on virtual machine16:57
tomreynanonid: do you still have the installer .isop file you downloaded?16:58
tomreyn*.iso is what i meant16:58
tomreynanonid: it's not unsuaual that a partially broken installer will work on one computer but not another. this should not be mistaken as an indication that it downloaded properly.16:59
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> *.iso is what i meant], yes i have the iso file now17:02
tomreyn<tomreyn> cross checking is generally a good approach, but in this case, where just one bit needs to be flipped to break it, it's not so helpful.17:02
tomreynanonid: what's the exact name of the iso file?17:02
tomreynanonid: and which operating system is running where you have it now?17:02
lubot<anonid> just a sec17:02
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> anonid: and which operating system is running where you have it now?], now i am running windows on hdd17:03
lubot<anonid> the name of the iso is lubuntu-20.04-desktop-amd64.iso17:04
tomreynokay. did it take a long time to download it?17:04
tomreyndo you have a flat rate tarrif?17:04
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> do you have a flat rate tarrif?], no in india internet is cheap it took 15 min in 4g17:05
tomreynthis is the latest installer version, i would suggest using this instead http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/20.04.1/release/lubuntu-20.04-desktop-amd64.iso17:05
lubot<anonid> ok thankyou i will try it17:05
tomreynanonid: consider downloading via bittorrent instead17:09
tomreynthis will usually help prevent broken downloads17:09
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> anonid: consider downloading via bittorrent instead], thanks a lot17:10
tomreynwhen you downloaded, use this approach to verify the SHA256 checksum: https://www.shellhacks.com/windows-md5-sha256-checksum-built-in-utility/17:11
tomreyni.e. you'd run, on windows cmd, something like:   certUtil -hashfile C:\MyUserName\Downloads\lubuntu-20.04-desktop-amd64.iso SHA25617:12
tomreynyou will need to modify the path, though, at the very least "MyUserName"17:12
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> you will need to modify the path, though, at the very least "MyUserNam …], i can get the previous one ie changing the directory can you please explain about myusername17:13
tomreynIF the download went fine, you should see a mix of numbers andcharacters which looks exactly like this:0727253098c998c0b7b7963326690419710cdce2479472ca7cfe7adda7a3117417:14
tomreynIf you stored the downloaded file in your "Download" folder (or move it there now), then this should work unmodified, in a windows command (or power) shell:     certUtil -hashfile %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\lubuntu-20.04-desktop-amd64.iso SHA25617:19
tomreynanonid: ^17:20
tomreynbut finish the download first17:20
tomreynactualyl this was the old file name, fow the new 20.04.1 ISO you'd need to change the command to this:17:21
tomreynuh, actually, that's the same file. i guess there is no lubuntu 20.04.1 then.17:22
tomreynah, yes, there is, i just provided the wrong http download url earlier17:22
tomreynbut the bittorrent one was fine17:23
tomreynfor the new 20.04.1 ISO you'd need to use this command to verify the checksum of the iso file in your downloads folder:17:23
tomreyncertUtil -hashfile %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\lubuntu-20.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso SHA25617:24
tomreynanonid: still downloading?17:36
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> anonid: still downloading?], sorry my interpack quota for today has completed i can download after half an hour (tommorow)17:51
lubot<anonid> is torrent ok should i check the checksum for torrent also17:51
tomreynyou should check it there, too17:56
tomreyni suggested torrent because it has a higher chance to produce a consistent download due to how it downloads, but you'd still want to verify the result is what it should be.17:57
lubot<anonid> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> i suggested torrent because it has a higher chance to produce a consis …], thankyou i will notify when i complete the download17:59
lubot<anonid> thanks a lot.... for the help17:59
tomreynokay, good luck, talk to you later.17:59

sjnjust found Lubuntu. Thanks for making a lightweight Ubuntu! Exactly what I need. :-D19:15
sjnquick question; What's the relationship betweeh lubuntu.me and lubuntu.net? The latter seems to offer out-of-date information, yet rank higher on google...19:19
akemhp.me is the official site.19:19
akemhpFor some reason it's not the one that comes first on result :/19:20
sjnyeah, I noticed that19:21
lubot<anonid> (Photo, 1024x768) https://i.imgur.com/raCe6op.jpg19:21
lubot<anonid> this is my lubuntu checksum19:21
lubot<anonid> i transfered the iso to usb19:21
sjnAh, I googled a little more, and found an answer to this Q on askubuntu.com19:21
lubot<anonid> @anonid [<reply to image>], used gtkhash19:22
lubot<anonid> is this the correct checksum19:23
lubot<CJAli2> hey  … I am having a problem booting lubuntu after a successful installation  … When I restart it just says there is no bootable media on your computer although I successfully installed lubuntu … P.S i dont have any other operating systems19:24
tomreynanonid: compare it to http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/20.04.1/release/SHA256SUMS19:34
tomreynCJAli2: hmm maybe you installed in bios mode but are booting in uefi mode now, or the other way around?19:34
lubot<CJAli2> @tomreyn [<tomreyn> CJAli2: hmm maybe you installed in bios mode but are booting in uefi m …], k i will check it19:38
