bumblefuzzzmy computer keeps disconnecting from the network...00:08
bumblefuzzzthe network is fine00:09
bumblefuzzzbut my computer keeps disconnecting randomly00:09
bumblefuzzzI need help diagnosing this00:09
Texasbumblefuzzz: When does it happen?00:10
TexasIs your computer falling asleep?00:11
bumblefuzzzit's happening right now00:12
bumblefuzzzevery 20-30 seconds... complete interruption00:13
bumblefuzzzno incoming for outgoing00:13
bumblefuzzzthen it resumes00:13
Texasbumblefuzzz: Try rebooting00:13
bumblefuzzzI did that first00:13
TexasMy MacBook Pro does it all the time tbh00:13
bumblefuzzzthis is after a fresh reboot00:13
TexasIt's usually just that the network is busy or something screwy is going on in the router00:14
bumblefuzzzno, other devices are fine00:14
bumblefuzzzjust this one device00:15
bumblefuzzzno ideas?00:18
bumblefuzzzit's a bridge00:20
lokuswhat do you mean by 'disconnecting'? you mentioned it was happening 'right now', yet your irc connection persisted00:21
bumblefuzzzbut this is happening on the machine, which is wired to the bridge00:21
bumblefuzzzand this hasn't happened before00:21
bumblefuzzzand, like I said, the rest of the network is fine00:21
lokusdefine bridge00:21
lokusis wireless? wired? when it's "disconnected", can you ping internal IPs e.g. the router? can you ping external IPs?00:22
craigbass76@kk4ewt, Hadn't thought of that (duh). The problem with the share was that there's already another one (so more button pushing) -- I don't think there are any email addresses set up on it though.00:23
craigbass76bumblefuzzz, Are there any IP conflicts? I chased my own tail the other day because the IPs that our firewall gave out to VPN clients was also part of the DHCP range. If you've got something set static, in the DHCP range, bada-bing.00:25
bumblefuzzany ideas?00:30
lokusbumbluefuzz not sure if you followed up before you got cut off. "disconnecting from the network" is not specific. when it's in that period of 'broken-ness'.. - what happened? presumably your machine didn't drop its IP address. is your destination to a local IP address on the network (router, other device..). is it ping-able? is it only internet addresses not reachable?00:32

lokusbumblefuzzz what's this bridge? is it connected to the more central router that the working devices are connected to?00:40
lokusif it's running a DHCP server additionally, depending how it's wired.. maybe you could have some issues. same problem craigbass76 mention00:41

gildartsIs there a way to reset all networking modifications back to "factory" for lack of a better word? I appear to have messed stuff up rather completely on my server. Currently can access it from outside the network, but not inside the network it appears.01:36
Texasgildarts: Maybe this? https://askubuntu.com/questions/176351/how-do-i-completely-reset-network-settings01:37
ecbrowngildarts: sounds like iptables might be messed up.  you might want to "flush" them: as root `iptables -F'01:38
gildartsecbrown: Yeah, I flushed them and rebooted a few times. Will check.01:41
ecbrownthere are also options to just flush, e.g the OUTPUT `iptables -F OUTPUT'01:41
gildartsFigured out I can ssh in if I ssh to an external server first. XD01:41
gildartsSo I'm not stuck in the basement.01:41

The installer works perfectly on SATA drives, but if NVMe is used and the wrong drive disappears... well, then I'm unable to boot and I get an "mdadm: error opening /dev/md?*: No such file or directory" error.

matsamanconjo: yes, unplug it and re-plug to see if it auto-mounts, or use 'mount' to mount it explicity05:41
matsamanmount LABEL=device-name /mnt/point, mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/point, etc05:42
conjoif i mount the usb in a diff place like in the /tmp/usbz/ will the usbz be left behind if i remove the usb?05:53
conjoor should i stick with convention so i dont have to go looking all over to rm -r folders after removing usb drive;having manually mounted it to location x y z(assuming uplugging the usb wont automagically delete the usbz creation)05:55
matsamanconjo: yeah but an empty directory won't hurt anything05:56
matsamanyou can safely 'rmdir' any directory you think might be empty05:56
conjoso prolly best to stick with convention05:56
matsamanif you replug it, it'll probably auto mount05:56
conjowith rmdir if its not empty it will flag a warning with out the recursive option/flag no?05:57

conjomacopython, im just guessing but id assume it would just trim the earliest entry to comply with the size enforcement06:05
macopythonconjo: Okay. But if I specify size then will it rotate as soon as size fits the criteria or it will rotate in the next round (which may be once in a day) ?06:06

macopythonconjo: Found the answer. Thanks06:08
conjowhat was it06:10
conjolink it if easier06:10
conjomacopython, was it a matter of viewing the setting inside /etc/logrotate.conf and uncommenting or editing the settings there?06:17

ThinkT510conjo: you certainly can run ubuntu without a desktop environment. there are likely many ubuntu servers out there.06:31
conjoThinkT510, ty06:32
ThinkT510also if you are thinking more along the lines of personal use then sometimes a window manager and an app launcher are all you need. I use i3wm with i3status and dmenu.06:33
conjois that pretty much a cli bash environment and a program that allows a gui for when required?06:34
ThinkT510it still uses X11 or wayland for graphical display06:35
conjoi am thinking along those lines im trying to learn how to do most of the things i do daily with the cli instead of the gui06:35
ThinkT510there are some options out there. I use weechat for irc (cli client)06:36
ThinkT510I use cmus for my music player (a good cli client)06:37
ThinkT510you can use screen or tmux for terminal mutiplexing (effectively a tiling window manager for a terminal)06:37

mgedmindo you have a remote console so you could see why it fails to boot, maybe do something from the grub menu?08:18
StyXmanthat was bioninc, xenial is 68MiB08:19

StyXmanin legacy mode I only see 5 disks listed (???) and none boots08:20

StyXmanbut only in 50 MiB08:22
* mgedmin is googling for "small linux rescue iso"08:22

mgedminsha1 is widely considered insecure: https://shattered.io/08:48
mgedminnot a second, but it can be broken in practice08:48
conjoto when your getting your iso's offline what is a prefered hash algo to choose from if available08:49
conjoonline lols08:49
mgedminalmost everyone uses SHA-256 nowadays08:49
conjoanything better08:49
conjocommonly used08:49

conjoits more secure or is that reletive08:52
conjogpg i mean08:52
mgedmingpg is hard to use correctly08:52
mgedminusually nobody gpg-signs images directly; they gpg-sign SHA256SUM files08:53
conjowhy for the sake of checking an iso wouldn't it be rather simple08:53

darrendwhat's the right way to request an update to a package from upstream, is it a bug report with a label of "packaging" or is there some other channel?10:39
lotuspsychjedarrend: can you elaborate a bit what the package/bug is about?10:40
ThinkT510what's the reason for the update?10:40
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.10:41
darrendupstream has fixed an issue that makes the package work again :) The current version in focal and groovy no longer works as it attempts to use an authentication method deprecated and removed by google10:41

EriC^^jpmiller25: looking14:08
jpmiller25Thanks. The install I'm trying to get working is on SDB partition #214:09
EriC^^jpmiller25: seems that it's installed in efi mode, i suspect in the bios you're choosing 'usb' and it's trying to boot it in legacy mode14:11
EriC^^jpmiller25: do you have a "uefi usb" option? perhaps if you can get to a one time (run time) boot menu it would list the usb and uefi usb options14:12
EriC^^jpmiller25: are you still in the live session though? cause there's something you should do for usb installs14:12
jpmiller25I am in the live session right now14:13
EriC^^jpmiller25: type "ls -lR /media/ubuntu/FB76-CFD6 | nc termbin.com 9999"14:13
EriC^^it should give a link back to a paste, copy it here14:14
EriC^^jpmiller25: hmm, that's not good, seems the efi partition is empty14:16
EriC^^jpmiller25: type "sudo umount /dev/sdb*"14:16
jpmiller25umount: /dev/sdb: not mounted.umount: /dev/sdb3: not mounted.14:17
EriC^^jpmiller25: type "sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt"14:17
jpmiller25it didnt give a response14:18
jpmiller25but after that I did the umount14:18
jpmiller25umount: /dev/sdb: not mounted.umount: /dev/sdb1: not mounted.umount: /dev/sdb3: not mounted.14:18
EriC^^jpmiller25: does 'lsblk' show nothing under Mountpoint for sdb partitions?14:19
jpmiller25yeah nothing under mountpoints...14:19
EriC^^ok, type 'sudo mount /dev/sdb2'14:19
jpmiller25weird I did set up the mountpoints in the partition setup before the install14:19
EriC^^please only run commands i give you and dont jump ahead14:19
jpmiller25ok understood14:20
EriC^^jpmiller25: type the following line word for word14:20
EriC^^jpmiller25: for i in /dev /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -R $i /mnt$i; done14:20
jpmiller25ok.  after doing sudo mount it says: /dev/sdb2: can't find in /etc/fstab14:21
jpmiller25I'm running the next command now14:21
EriC^^jpmiller25: my bad, sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt14:21
EriC^^wait dont runt he for command yet14:21
jpmiller25ok I havent14:21
jpmiller25should I do the sudo mount first?14:22
jpmiller25ok that's done with no respons14:23
EriC^^jpmiller25: also the for command?14:24
jpmiller25sorry I was waiting- doing the command now14:24
jpmiller25ok thats done with no response14:25
EriC^^alright, all good14:25
EriC^^jpmiller25: type 'sudo chroot /mnt'14:25
jpmiller25im in14:25
EriC^^jpmiller25: 'mount -a'14:25
jpmiller25no response14:25
EriC^^jpmiller25: grub-install --removable14:26
jpmiller25Installation finished. No error reported.14:27
EriC^^jpmiller25: also run 'grub-install' so it'll add it to the uefi list in your pc14:28
jpmiller25ok I'm still running this as root@ubuntu?14:29
jpmiller25Installation finished. No error reported.14:29
EriC^^jpmiller25: update-grub14:29
EriC^^just as a sanity check, "ls -lR /boot | nc termbin.com 9999"14:30
jpmiller25should I exit root before that?14:31
jpmiller25ok I had a lot of error messages cannot open directory14:32
jpmiller25hold on14:32
EriC^^jpmiller25: something is pretty weird14:33
EriC^^jpmiller25: type 'rm -r /boot/efi/efi/ubuntu'14:34
jpmiller25lots of cannot remove errors - Read only file system14:34
EriC^^jpmiller25: something definitely seems skewed, if i were you i'd just reformat the efi partition14:35
EriC^^jpmiller25: type 'sudo umount /boot/efi'14:35
EriC^^jpmiller25: sudo mkfs.fat /dev/sdb114:36
jpmiller25mkfs.fat: /dev/sdb1 contains a mounted filesystem14:37
EriC^^jpmiller25: ah i see what's going on, the efi partition on the usb isnt actually being used in fstab, it's using the nvme one14:37
EriC^^that's why earlier it was empty, but when we listed this it had a bunch of microsoft/windows files and stuff14:37
jpmiller25wow thats over my head sorry14:38
EriC^^jpmiller25: type 'nano /etc/fstab'14:38
EriC^^you want to exchange the UUID's there to this14:38
EriC^^jpmiller25: you want it to look like this https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/swGwsdv6jv/14:39
EriC^^remove the extra /fatpartition line, and exchange the UUID there with the UUID in the /boot/efi line14:40

amarokI got a question about gnome-software on ubuntu 20.0414:41
amarokIt seems that gnome-software only accepts to install snap/debs from already added ppa/repositories14:42
amarokI mean, having a .deb/.snap which is not in the snap store or basic repos will not work, even if the .deb will install the wanted ppa14:42
amarokapt-get install will work tho14:44
jpmiller25EriC^^: I have done that14:46
EriC^^jpmiller25: ok, did you save and exit?14:47
EriC^^jpmiller25: ok, type 'mount /boot/efi'14:47
EriC^^jpmiller25: grub-install --removable14:48
jpmiller25Installation finished. No error reported.14:49
EriC^^jpmiller25: also 'grub-install'14:49
EriC^^jpmiller25: type 'exit'14:50

jozefkIf I try to do the update, I am getting a message which says Cuda is going to be removed: https://imgur.com/a/3B3VSxS18:35
jozefkIs that normal?18:35
TJ-DeeJayTwo: is enp8s0 being managed by something like NetworkManager or systemd-networkd? Is this a desktop or server install?18:37
DeeJayTwodesktop install so yes18:37
TJ-DeeJayTwo: sounds like the currently active network manager is retaking control of the interface since you're trying to steal it away18:37
DeeJayTwook thank you for the explanation :)18:37
TJ-DeeJayTwo: so I'm guessing you've got a connection that uses that interface18:37
TJ-DeeJayTwo: you may gain some clue from "journalctl -f -u NetworkManager" in a terminal whilst trying to create the bridge in another terminal18:39
TJ-jozefk: Doesn't look correct, as in, my bet is that the nvidia drivers are requiring the later cuda-drivers-450 which likely declares a Conflicts: or Replaces: fo cuda-drivers and as cuda-drivers is a dependency of those other CUDA packages, they have to be removed.18:43
TJ-!info cuda-drivers18:44
ubottuPackage cuda-drivers does not exist in focal18:44
TJ-jozefk: looks like neither cuda-drivers nor cuda-drivers-450 is in the Ubuntu archive, so presumably a 3rd party source18:45
jozefkIt's not a problem is cuda will be removed, but I need Cuda all the time. So if the update will remove it I need the new Cuda, for those new drivers. Why don't the update get the new Cuda in the same time while removing the current one?18:45
jozefkMaybe it's a matter of time. Maybe I should wait for a while and see what happens after few days18:47
TJ-jozefk: where are you getting these CUDA packages from?18:47
jozefkfrom: deb https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu2004/x86_64/18:49
TJ-jozefk: ahhh, so you'd need to ask NVidia about that18:49

TJ-jozefk: whatever support options NVidia has - I suspect their community web forums18:52
bigpichey guys how do i go about preventing a service from starting at boot?  i don’t want to outright disable the service18:55
TJ-bigpic: is it managed by systemd?18:56
bigpici’m having issues with mysql at startup when the encrypted volume it sits on isn’t yet mounted18:56
TJ-bigpic: you can add a condition to the service (unit) file that prevents it starting if that mount isn't available18:56
bigpicany chance you can point me to some docs?18:57
bigpiceverything i google is providing examples on totally disabling the service18:57
TJ-"man systemd.unit" then search for "ConditionPathExists= and friends (search using reg-exps, e.g. press /ConditionPathExits and the enter, then 'n' for moving to Next match and so on18:59
TJ-bigpic: to edit the unit you'd do "sudo systemctl edit mysql.service" (if that is the name) then add 2 lines "[Service]" and "ConditionPathExists=/var/lib/mysql/dump" or whatever a path *inside* the mounted file-system is called19:00
bigpicwoot i’ll give that a try19:01
TJ-bigpic: correction! not "[service]", it would be "Unit"19:02

hotsouphello all. I hopefully have an easy problem to solve. I installed ubuntu 20.04 on an old macbook pro and my goal is to use as dlna mediaserver on my LAN. I have correctly configured samba to share my media directories. I wish to be able to access the shares directly via smb and add or remove files as needed.  My folder is in the root in a folder called /medialib. /etc/fstab mounts the drive correctly without any user having to log in.19:47
hotsoupMy porblem is that when I map the share to my client laptop, it allows me to view but not move files to the shares. I think it is a folder permission issue and have tried to add a group called medialib with r/w access to the folder but it says "chgrp: changing group of '/medialib': Operation not permitted"19:49
hotsoupI have tried to do this as root. It seems like I should be able to do anything I want to the directory as root, including adding a group with r+w access...19:52
hotsoupjust need a bit of guidance19:52
hotsoupI'm appreciative for any help or guidance you can provide19:53
TJ-hotsoup: not if the share is on the remote system - then your permissions are controlled by a combination of the remote file-system AND the local mount options19:53
hotsoupok. I can paste my fstab and run any commands to clarify directory permissions...19:56

hotsoupno. this is a brand new install. I will install those but my goal is to get this working without a user logging in.  presently, I can get it to work as described only if I log in as one of the approved users. Right now, the machine is sitting at the choose user login prompt.20:26
pavloshotsoup: as long as samba is running (smbd), you dont need to log on20:27
hotsoupI installed the packages you mentioned.20:27
pavloshotsoup: does file manager see the share?20:28
hotsoupOnly if I directly point to it like we did before in nautilus connect to server box at bottom of "other locations"  smb://
hotsoupthen the shares show up immediately but not the name of the server20:29
pavloshotsoup: since file manager sees the share, can you right click add to bookmarks20:31
pavloshotsoup: that share should be available from another client as smb:// (assuming in the same subnet20:34
hotsoupI can test from another machine. is that what you are asking? hang on20:35
pavloshotsoup: you want to make sure the share is available eventhough you did not login in the .4 system20:35
pavloshotsoup: you can reboot the .4, then ssh to it and verify smbd is running. All clients in your subnet should see the smb:// share20:39
hotsoupok. will reboot20:42
hotsoupby the way, the access from another client was same as the one I'm on.  read only access20:42
pavloshotsoup: I'll test all the steps in a 20.04 VM and get back to you20:43
hotsouphang on.  don't do it. I rebooted and that worked. Problem is I don't get why.  I did sudo service smbd restart after every change.20:46
hotsoupto be clear, I copied a file into the directory and it worked. Nobody is logged into the mediaserver. I'm ssh'd in but not pysically logged in20:47
pavloshotsoup: that's good20:47
pavloshotsoup: so the .4 can be in a corner running, nobody logged in, and provide shares20:48
hotsoupexactly. but I don't know why it worked when she was giving me hell earlier today. Thanks much. I'm going to do a deep dive and study my config so I can do it again if I need to20:49
pavloshotsoup: study the configs -- you're all set.20:50
hotsoupYeah. Last question I have is why can't I see them from "other locations: without directly calling the IP?20:52
hotsoupI appreciate all your help!!! Many Thanks!20:53
hotsoupDo I need to do some more voodoo on my smb.conf?20:53
pavloshotsoup: that may be an issue with file manager20:53
hotsoupoh ok. I will reboot my laptop and see what happens20:53
hotsouppavlos you were right. I rebooted and my server came up immediately in "other locations" thanks much again. I hope when I learn enough about linux I can help somebody like I got it today.  Have a good one.20:59

ppqHi! Are there official VirtualBox appliances (OVA/OVF) of Ubuntu for desktop PCs? I only know of the cloud version at https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/focal/current/22:51
ppqMS offers .ovas with Win 10, which is pretty neat https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/virtual-machines/22:52
oerheksthere is an OVA on this server https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/focal/current/22:54
oerhekseasy to find, no?22:54
ppqyes, it is the link I mentioned.22:55
ppqthis is ubuntu server, probably with all those cloud things preinstalled.22:55
ppqI am looking for an OVA for desktop use22:56
TJ-ppq: you want a 'desktop' pre-installed image?22:56
ppqTJ-, yes22:56
TJ-ppq: I've never seen any; most of Canonical's output is aimed at enterprise/cloud server customers22:57
ppqTJ-, there are many third-party websites offering VM appliances of all kinds of OS's, including Ubuntu, but I really don't want to use those22:58
tomreynhttps://www.osboxes.org/ubuntu/ - not official though22:58
ppqlike that one, exactly22:58
oerheksi think you want a .vdi ?22:58
ppqI'd rather take a complete VM "image", not just the HD image22:59
ppqVirtualbox can import and export whole VMs22:59
ppqIt would be a really useful tool to have safe and trustworthy, up-to-date and ready-made VMs with Ubuntu Desktop, e.g. for quick testing of software in a fresh environment, or for cross platform dev stuff. Or even for windows users who want to try Ubuntu.23:05
tatertotsjust make your own VM23:05
tatertotsand if you can't....maybe a more lucky tech savvy friend can make a VM for you to use23:06
ppqreinstalling or upgrading it every time a new Ubuntu release comes out is a hassle23:06
ppqwith the guest additions also23:06
ppqimporting a (lightweight) VM just takes a few seconds23:08
hackinghornhi, I installed ubuntu dual boot with windows but got some problems. It is stuck with weird color lines on screen after booting into ubuntu. I suspect its due to the nvidia graphics card. What can I do?23:15
tomreynhackinghorn: you could replace it by a graphics card where proper open source drivers are available.23:19
tomreynhackinghorn: but i guess that's not what you meant ;)23:19
tomreynhackinghorn: have you tried booting it with nomodeset?23:19
ubottuSystems 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.23:19
tomreynor to recovery?23:19
ubottuIf your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode23:19
hackinghornohh not yet23:20
hackinghornlet me try that23:20
tomreynalso, which ubuntu version are we talking about here? did you already install proprietary nvidia drivers, and if so, how?23:21
hackinghorneh probably not23:22
hackinghorntomreyn, I just installed ubuntu focal, how do I install proprietary nvidia drivers?23:23
hackinghornmaybe i need to check nvidia's site23:23
tomreynhackinghorn: i think 20.04 LTS would install them by default23:24
hackinghornheh, wut, maybe23:25
hackinghornI had the graphics running well when installing but not after installing23:26
tomreynlooking for them on nvidias' website would be the worst thing you could do really.23:26
tomreynthere's the ubuntu-drivers command you can run from a terminal to manage them23:26
tomreynwhich graphics card is it exactly, do you know?23:27
hackinghornits a GTX 1650S23:27
hackinghornwo wow23:28
hackinghornmaybe I need to reinstall23:28
hackinghornI got an idea23:29
hackinghornsee ya in a while23:29
tomreynhackinghorn: you shouldn't need to reinstall, no. just boot with nomodeset or to recovery, drop to shell, and see what you can do with ubuntu-drivers23:29
hackinghornohh I see23:30
hackinghornlet me try that, thankss23:30
