roger_rogerhello - i have 2 disks with ubuntu installed on each one... i want to eliminate one of them but it is the one with grub on it - how do i move/copy/install grub on the other partition and make it the active one?00:35
Bashing-omroger_roger: Depends on the partioning scheme ; legacy of EFI ?00:37
roger_rogeryes - efi00:41

Bashing-omroger_roger: Is there a present /efi partition on the target drive ' sudo parted -l ' ?00:42
roger_rogergrub is on the samsung and i want it on the intel00:43
Bashing-omroger_roger: msdos/gpt are not compatible. A thought - now might be a good time for a clean fresh install . But with a lot of hassle installing grub to the Intel drive in theory can be done - But going to take a lot of time and effort to set up to move the present partition to make up a efi/ partition. Not something I have experience with.00:50
roger_rogertrying to avoid fresh install - i have so much going on there...00:51
roger_rogerthe samsung disk is the one i want to remove... i think i could do this by booting to a live cd but i don't know how... seems like i need to create a partition on the intel00:53
Bashing-omroger_roger: Can be done - but moving data ! always a chance of fault/failure - a backup of data is highly recommended. Others here with experience will have to advise if setting a efi/ partition at the end of the drive is possible, to reduce that failure threshhold.00:54
roger_rogerno data to move - just want to create the parition in the 500mb free space on the intel drive, install grub and then tell the bios to go there00:56
roger_rogerthere's 538 of empty space at the beginning of the intel drive where the efi partition can go00:57
Bashing-omroger_roger: Thing is that making room ( at the start of the disk) will involve moving all the data within that partition). GPT will require that /efi partition.00:58
roger_rogerthere's no data - it is currently free space00:59
Bashing-omroger_roger: Sounds reasonable to me to use that unused space . makes things much easier.00:59
roger_rogeryeah - i just don't know how :-)00:59

rongx1anI'm running ubuntu+fluxbox, many programs are dependent on gnome(xchat, audaciou etc). Is there a way to install them independently?03:09
guivercrongx1an, I suspect it's not that they're dependent on GNOME itself, but the GTK+ toolkit ; eg. I see no GNOME depends in https://packages.ubuntu.com/focal/audacious03:46
guivercI followed a few of the depends links & only say libgtk etc03:48
guivercrongx1an, the obvious answer is using "--no-install-recommends"03:49

wip_hi! i got an ubuntu server 18.04.5 lts in an offline enviroment that needs a desktop. according to docs i can use ubuntu desktop 18.04.5 dvd, use apt-cdrom, apt update and apt install ubuntu-desktop. but it doesnt seem to find ubuntu-desktop package?08:20
wip_what am i missing here?08:22
mrbell1984why does it need a desktop? ubuntu server usually is used without the desktop, ubuntu desktop is used with a desktop08:51
wip_it need to run tools which requires X during install08:57
neicIs it correct that the GA kernels of LTS releases only receive CVE/Critical updates after the first two years of support? It is indicated at the bottom of this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack#Kernel.2FSupport.LTS_Kernel_Support_Schedule09:08
guivercneic, I believe you're reading it incorrectly.  GA kernels are supported the full life of the product, as are HWE kernels.  The HWE kernel advances every 6 months for the first two years (ie. 18.04 advanced to use 18.10's kernel & stack, then 19.04's, then 19.10's before using 20.04's GA stack from then on).  That's the significance of the two years09:11
* guiverc adds in my words anyway09:11
guivercI believe I recall prior cases (12.04 maybe) where in the last few days of it's 5 year cycle, a CVE annoucement came out stating to get that patched you had to switch to HWE; but it was days before it's EOL anyway (significant if you were planning on using ESM though probably) -- but this is historical data as I remember it & it maybe missing details (wrong version etc)09:13
neicWhat is then happening with the 16.04.0 (v4.4) line at Apr 2018?09:13
guivercThe 4.4 kernel will be supported until 16.04 reaches EOL on 2021-April (5 years from release) unless you use ESM.  The HWE kernel for 16.04 is 4.1509:14
lotuspsychjewip_: are you possible to connect your machine to internet?09:16
=== _kukacz is now known as kukacz
neicguiverc, And there is no change to the level of support of 4.4 at april 2018?09:17
wip_lotuspsychje: no, that's what makes it a problem09:17
lotuspsychjewip_: https://phoenixnap.com/kb/how-to-install-a-gui-on-ubuntu09:17
guivercneic, No.  4.4 is supported until 2021-April (5 years from it's release).  The HWE kernel for 16.04 reached it's final *bump* to the 18.04 kernel (4.15) and didn't advance any further.09:18
lotuspsychjewip_: think if you add the desktop cdrom in your sources you can pull off packages offline09:18
neicguiverc. Great. Thanks for clarifying.09:18
guivercyou're most welcome neic09:19
wip_lotuspsychje: ye, manage to mount filesystem.squashfs on the desktop dvd, dont yet know how to pull the packages from there09:20
lotuspsychjewip_: you might wanna talk to the #ubuntu-server volunteers howto do it cli09:21
wip_lotuspsychje: just adding the desktop dvd with apt-cdrom was not eniugh tho09:21
wip_lotuspsychje: ah thx09:21
lotuspsychjewip_: did you sudo apt update, after adding the dvd as source?09:22
wip_lotuspsychje: yea09:22
wip_you can pull gcc and a few pkgs from the desktop dvd, but no ubuntu-desktop09:23

rana_ansI dont know, its not showing HDD either in other locations now18:53

rana_ansEriC^^: hey, I need to add just the chainloader command at the end right?19:14
rana_ansnothing else?19:15
EriC^^rana_ans: up, that's it, then sudo update-grub19:15

EriC^^i have no idea, i think it should though19:16
EriC^^actually one sec19:17
rana_ansits giving me an error 'sudo update-grub'19:17
EriC^^sudo nano the file again, yeah i forgot about something19:18
EriC^^add this instead, and modify the path if you need to, https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/TtPZtWvwHZ/19:18
EriC^^you can call it what you want, just "Windows" etc19:19
rana_ansIm removing chainloader line as well19:19
rana_ansshouldn't there be chainloader ($root)/path?19:20
EriC^^nope, the set root= takes care of it19:21
rana_ansEriC^^: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/XsDpCkgT5x/19:21
EriC^^rana_ans: type 'cat /etc/grub.d/47_custom_proxy | nc termbin.com 9999"19:23
rana_ansthis is how my file looks like: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/KWzc3JsSMr/19:23

EriC^^rana_ans: edit the file again, remove everything in it19:25

EriC^^rana_ans: yes, everything19:26
EriC^^rana_ans: paste this instead in the file https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/FhrthWBszs/19:26

rana_anshave a great night brother! good night19:38
oerheks!cookie | EriC^^19:38
ubottuEriC^^: Wow! You're such a great helper, you deserve a cookie!19:38
rana_ansyea he has helped me several times now19:38
oerhekshave fun!19:39
EriC^^thanks, you too19:39
rana_ansEriC^^: btw I get this error sof-audio-pci 0000:00:1f.3: error: no reply expected, received 0x019:43
rana_ansit showed this time as well, Im afraid next time I restart it will send me into emergency mode where I'll get stuck again19:43
rana_ansis it a problem with kernels or something?19:43
EriC^^rana_ans: doesn't seem really important, just a warning kind of19:45
Exterminadorso, I'm a bit puzzled. when I installed Xubuntu in my new laptop (a Lenovo notebook), seems that I have 2 boot entries? if I press F7 while turning the laptop, it goes to the boot manager and I have 4 entries: Ubuntu, Windows Boot Manager and 2 disabled entries19:46
rana_anslemme show u SS of what it does when I get stuck in loop19:46
Exterminadorcan someone shed a light why this happens? it's the 1st time I see such thing19:46
EriC^^Exterminador: that sounds like the uefi menu entries19:47
oerheksExterminador,  sounds like an UEFI thingy, there is still a Windows entry there?19:47
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI19:47
EriC^^that's not in grub right Exterminador ?19:47
Exterminadornope, it's not in grub. it's the laptop boot manager, sort of speaking19:47
rana_ansEriC^^: https://ibb.co/0cpVXmg19:48
EriC^^Exterminador: that's normal, windows boot manager is standard i'd guess, and ubuntu added its own19:48
oerheksit is in the 1st partiton on the drive19:48
Exterminadorin my older laptops I've never seen such boot manager. is that something kinda new? my oldest laptop is like 11y old19:48
oerheksyes, see the !uefi factoid19:49
oerhekslegacy mbr > uefi19:49
Exterminadorwill do it right away. I was thinking that I've borked something :x19:49
EriC^^rana_ans: very odd, i think that's related to something else happening and not the error, i'd guess19:50
oerheksExterminador, no, you did not wipe the disk fully.19:50
oerheksbut that is oke19:50
EriC^^rana_ans: right now while you're booted you can try 'grep -i error /var/log/boot.log' i guess it might also have happened during the current boot19:50
rana_ansit shows that error several times in the list journalctl -xb19:50
rana_ansyes it did, thats why I came to you right away19:51
EriC^^rana_ans: could it be the hdd is on it's way out?19:51
Exterminadoroerheks: indeed, I'm dual booting xD19:51
rana_answdym? :c19:51
EriC^^try a smart test on the hdd using sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda    (from smartmontools package)19:51
EriC^^rana_ans: that emergency error is usually when the fs is corrupted and stuff, and since its intermittent, seems might be hardware related19:52
rana_anssmatctl command not found19:52
EriC^^anyways a smart test should show the hdd health easily19:52
EriC^^rana_ans: sudo apt install smartmontools && sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda | nc termbin.com 999919:53
EriC^^rana_ans: anything in /etc/fstab that is out of the ordinary? any network mounts or something19:54
rana_ansIm waiting on that smartmontools, then Ill check that19:54
rana_ansEriC^^: https://termbin.com/h1jsd19:57
rana_anshow do I check /etc/fstab? ls /etc/fstab?19:58
EriC^^rana_ans: smart test looks good, cat /etc/fstab19:58
rana_ansEriC^^: https://termbin.com/zh7s419:59
EriC^^rana_ans: looks ok20:02
rana_ansalright, I'll contact you if I get stuck in the loop then. Thanks a lot!!!20:03
EriC^^rana_ans: i think when the emergency mode happens, see the logs of that boot to see exactly what happened, maybe you have to turn on persistent log to see it20:03
kur1jCan someone tell me where in the world a system I have is getting its DNS information? My wifi device is setting as the DNS in /etc/resolv.conf instead of leaving it as Nothing in /etc/system/resolved.conf20:03
rana_ansI checked journalctl -xb it showed only red lines which had sof-audio-pci only20:03
rana_ansnothing else20:03
EriC^^rana_ans: right now?20:04
rana_ansno no not right now, the last time I got stuck like in the morning today20:05
EriC^^if you type now journalctl -xb | grep -i "error.*audio"    what happens20:06
EriC^^sorry "audio.*error"20:07
rana_ansEriC^^: https://termbin.com/loq120:07
rana_ansand they are all red in terminal20:08
EriC^^ok, so the current boot also has it20:08
rana_ansyeah, its prolly gonna get stuck if I restart20:08
=== NeverLoads3 is now known as NeverLoads
EriC^^next time the emergency mode happens, try journalctl -xb   in the maintenance shell if that shows any info20:09
rana_ansyeah it shows these in red20:09
rana_ansnothing other than audio in red20:09
rana_ansI check it last time it happened20:09
rana_anscan this be fixed?20:10
EriC^^probably the emergency mode is due to something else though, these are just warnings that will keep on happening20:10
EriC^^it's saying that it didnt expect any reply, but it got one, that's all20:10
rana_ansI cant pastebin the data from there, so I will try getting SS of all red lines then if it happens20:11
rana_ansI hope not20:11
EriC^^rana_ans: if you want enable the persistent storage of journal so that you can lookk back on the bad boot once it boots20:11
EriC^^sudo mkdir -p /var/log/journal && sudo systemd-tmpfiles --create --prefix /var/log/journal20:12
EriC^^alright, that should do it20:13
rana_ansthanks again!20:13
EriC^^no problem20:13
rana_ansgood night!20:13
