BluesKajHi all11:35
WaltS48Thanks for the update to Firefox 81.0 this morning! Now where is Thunderbird 68.12.0? 78.3.0? Eh?12:26
oxekso demanding...12:29
oxekit will come when it's ready12:29
WaltS48Why isn't it ready?12:31
WaltS48All the other distros have updated already.12:31
oxekdebian hasn't12:36
WaltS48oxek: So these alerts are fake news? https://lwn.net/Articles/830109/12:39
WaltS48Oh, and 78.3.1 is the update to
oxeknot fake news, it is a vulnerability12:40
oxekwill be fixed when ready12:40
oxekif you absolutely rely on having security fixes as soon as possible, then you should either compile stuff yourself, or get the packages from upstream, or move to a distro that is very quick to update. Also checkout flatpak or snap.12:43
WaltS48I know it's not fake news that Debian has updated. You can peruse the rest at your leisure here. https://lwn.net/Alerts/12:43
oxekdebian has not updated thunderbird to 78.3 yet12:43
oxekstill on 68.1212:44
WaltS48I'm already using 78.3.1. Just thinking about the repo users that haven't been and concerned for their safety. Does the maintainer have Covid?12:45
WaltS48haven't been updated12:45
hggdhWaltS48: please tone down12:46
WaltS48Well, somebody give me answer as to why Ubuntu is still on 68.10.0 when all the others have updated to
oxekWaltS48: feel free to pay a salary to the thunderbird maintainer to get it done. In the meantime, it is a volunteer project.12:47
WaltS48So was Thunderbird when I started contributing to the project. Now they have a paid staff and I'm still a volunteer.12:49
xtaoi attempted to test the snap version of firefox but couldn't get it to pick up my profile. need to look into that again. i tried copying ~/.mozilla into ~/snap/common/mozilla i think. something like that. maybe that's wrong12:50
oxekWaltS48: thunderbird is not a canonical project, it has no paid staff to maintain it12:50
oxekeven more so with debian, where it is all on a volunteer basis12:50
WaltS48And they have 68.12.0 out since Aug 31st.12:52
WaltS48Okay, after I don't know how many years of using Ubuntu, providing support when and where I can for the applications and os, maybe it is time to look for another distribution.12:55
oxekfeel free to talk to the thunderbird maintainers in ubuntu about paying them money to keep up-to-date, or step up yourself as a maintainer12:55
WaltS48That keeps my critical apps up to date. There doesn't seem to be any oxek.12:56
hggdhWaltS48: it is your choice and decision to use whatever OS and distro you want. Butbeing less aggressive might help12:56
oxekWaltS48: then perhaps ubuntu is not the distro for you12:56
lotuspsychjeWaltS48: there is also a thunderbird snap; see snap info thunderbird12:57
WaltS48Asking why Ubuntu hasn't updated Thunderbird from 68.10.0 to 68.12.0 is being aggressive? Not interested in snaps, flatpacks or any other new stuff. I'm old and set in my ways.12:59
hggdhWaltS48: again, your choice. You already made it clear. Now please stop13:00
WaltS48Okay, it's maintained by a volunteer and they haven't had time, are ill, don't care anymore?13:00

ldiamondThe kernel parameters (cryptdevice=UUID=actual-uuid:cryptroot root=/dev/mapper/cryptroot) are there16:05
ldiamondI'm thinking the initrd image doesn't have luks built-in. Do I have to add any module to it manually?16:05
leftyfbldiamond: how do you have an ecrypted root without creating it at install time?16:07
ldiamondleftyfb: I converted it. Created a luks2 partition and `dd` the ext4 fs over16:08
leftyfbldiamond: a lot less work to just reinstall and restore from backup16:09
ldiamondIt's a corporate laptop that has a bunch of things preset in their image. They just messed up and sent it out unencrypted.16:11
ldiamondI honestly only need the initrd to open the luks partition, all the work is done16:12
ldiamondThe equivalent on Arch for example would be to modify /etc/mkinitcpio.conf to add 'encrypt' module (and 'keyboard keymap' to be able to type the pw).16:13

TexasLike: What desktop are you using? What ubuntu version are you using? What were you doing prior to the issue that may have caused the desktop to freeze? :)17:51
ldiamond`lsinitramfs | grep crypt` shows a bunch of things, including cryptsetup, askpass and cryptroot-unlock. My kernel options include `cryptdevice="UUID=actual-uuid:cryptroot" root=/dev/VolumeGroup/root`. However, when booting, there's no password prompt and I get dropped into a shell with an error saying it timedout waiting for root.17:53
ses1984ubuntu 20.04, i was running a script in a terminal17:53

ses1984ansible deploying some stuff to remote servers17:53
ses1984the system seems to freeze randomly17:53

ses1984i can, i would like to not have to do that regularly on a brand new system17:54
TexasWhat do you have running on there?17:54
ses1984i had a system that was having chronic problems until i replaced literally everything in it17:54
TexasIt sounds like you may be having some RAM issues17:54
ses1984the only thing that's the same anymore is the nvme disk17:54
ses1984i have probably run memtest over 100 hours with no errors found17:54
Texasses1984: Are you just using the regular ubuntu desktop?17:55
TexasLet me investigate a bit17:55
ses1984i cant switch to another terminal. i cant alt-sysreq reisub17:55
ses1984i guess maybe it could be the nvme disk? i've replaced literally every other part trying to get to the bottom of this17:56
pavlosses1984: can you ssh to this system from another host?17:56
ses1984didnt try that yet17:56
Texasses1984: But what are you running on the system17:57
ses1984it could be anything. it could freeze 5 seconds after booting running nothing. or sometimes freezes when i click firefox17:57
pavlosses1984: test that ansible can reach all remote hosts (ansible all -m ping)17:57
ses1984the task it failed on was targeting localhost17:57
pavlosses1984: use top t ofind offending procs, kill them if need be17:58
ses1984and if it cant reach remote hosts, that's not going to manifest as frozen desktop that doesnt respond to ctrl-alt-f1 or alt-sysreq-reisub17:58
ses1984how can i use top when the desktop is f r o z e n17:58
pavlosfrom the ssh17:58
ses1984i will have to try later but i'm guessing 99% chance it will not respond to ssh17:58

coconuttomreyn: i ask because my thinkpad does sometimes not get it's wifi chip detected well (i believe only when it gets warm)19:19
coconuttomreyn: and i want to test the latest firmware first before the manufacturer comes at my door19:20
coconuttomreyn: uefi i just updated with a live iso, but the wifi not yet....19:20
tomreyncoconut: intel wireless firmware is provided by a package named linux-firmware. you can use "apt changelog PACKAGENAME" to see a packages' changelogs.19:22
coconuttomreyn: thnx tom!19:23
tomreynthe firmware loaded by the driver is loaded in a non-persistent way. it does not persist after linux shuts down.19:23
tomreynsimilarily to cpu microcode updates loaded by linux during early boot19:24
coconuttomreyn: ok, well i think i will let the onsite support come home here, because my wifi is now unstable for months and i tried the latest mainline linux too.19:27
coconutthey do seem to support ubuntu though19:28
e|fHi!  I have Kubuntu 20.04 focal installed on my Lenovo laptop.   Wiped Windows from it completely.  All is well except when I boot, the stupid Lenovo splash screen appears twice.  Any ideas on a fix?  Thanks!19:36

jarray52Is there an Ubuntu package that supports the ffs file system (with or without fuse)?22:41
tomreynjarray52: "UFS" is the keyword (or key acronym) there.22:45
jarray52tomreyn: From what I understand, UFS, FFS, and FFS2 are similar filesystems that might share a common ancestor, but they are different at the level where the rubber meets the road.22:46
tomreynthat's right, quoting wikipedia: "Linux includes a UFS implementation for binary compatibility at the read level with other Unixes, but since there is no standard implementation for the vendor extensions to UFS, Linux does not have full support for writing to UFS. The native Linux ext2 filesystem was inspired by UFS1 but does not support fragments and there are no plans to implement soft updates.[citation needed] (In some 4.4BSD-derived systems,22:47
tomreynthe UFS layer can use an ext2 layer as a container layer, just as it can use FFS and LFS.)"22:47
tomreynjarray52: if you look at 'ufs' in the mount(8) manual page you'll notice there's a ufstype= option22:47
jarray52tomreyn: Thanks, that makes sense. I'll give it a try.22:59
tomreynjarray52: you're welcome. note also how most of them support only read-only access.23:09
jwashis it possible to make the computer ignore the press of a power button?23:09
jwashwhen shutting down23:09
jwashi don't want my kids to be able to hold down the power button for 10 seconds23:10
tomreynjwash: see the logind.conf(5) man page and /etc/systemd/logind.conf23:11
Bashing-omjwash: On my box - the power button action is controlled in my bios.23:11
jwashyep, i need to look at bios23:12
dTaljwash: you could physically replace the switch23:34
jwashdtal, not a bad idea, i could put a connector on the back which I could just jump23:36
jwashthey would never know the difference23:36
dTalI'm not sure what kind of switch you'd need to preserve the single-press behaviour23:38
dTalOr just not use the original circuit at all.23:39
