sarnoldgone but happy :) heh00:04
tomreynbaegle: how are you coming?00:19
baegletomreyn: not ready to reboot to find out. Trying to find a way to assess if update-initramfs and grub-install have made any material changes. I'm really not sure how to test without a reboot.00:21
tomreynbaegle: if you have any initrd's left from before you manually ran update-initramfs, you could compare to those00:23
baegletomreyn: I found this article and I'm trying to figure out how to learn from it https://askubuntu.com/questions/551446/cant-find-lvm-root-dropped-back-to-initramfs00:23
tomreynbaegle: other than that, you could inspect one and see whether it has the needed binaries in it, and the crypttab and fstab00:23
ash_worksiI just tried using the kali contaienr00:24
baegletomreyn: it does not have /etc/crypttab in it00:24
tomreynbaegle: so the error was really that it could not find the lvm when you booted last time? i.e. it didn't say the encryption layer was an issue, and you were prompted for the passphrase?00:24
tomreynoh, no crypttab, no decryption, i guess00:24
baegletomreyn: I was not prompted for the passphrase00:24
ash_worksiit doesn't appear to have any of the cli tools listed here: https://tools.kali.org/tools-listing00:24
tomreynbaegle: actually i'm wrong about crypttab, it's not added to the initrd.00:26
tomreynbut its content is still important for it00:27
baegletomreyn: The crypttab has the correct UUID, AFAICT00:27
tomreynbaegle: so if you weren't prompted for the encryption passphrase then you don't need to concern yourself with the lvm for now, but with the encryption layer - it's the first one that needs to be opened.00:27
baegletomreyn: Yeah, it can't find the logical volume because it's not even trying to decrypt the luks volume to find the logical volume within. And I don't know why00:28
tomreynbaegle: me enither, since i don't know your blkid and crypttab and fstab00:29
baegletomreyn: standby, will get you that00:30
tomreynhmm, maybe you just missed this line earlier?  <tomreyn> baegle: can you share    blkid    and    grep -hEv '^[[:blank:]]*(#.*)?$' /etc/lvm/*.conf    output and the contents of /etc/{crypt,fs}tab ?00:30

reagaubuntu crashed when i tried to install it00:34
reagai want a refund00:34
baeglereaga: Granted00:35
baeglereaga: You're very welcome00:35
baegletomreyn: whoops, gotta get you the lvm configs, standby00:35
sarnoldreaga: the bug report I see most often is people running the installer in UEFI mode but not having a EFI filesystem on their drive00:36
baegletomreyn: https://termbin.com/y72t00:37
reagakubuntu and mint installed fine but ubuntu just died, i think ill give it another shot but disable some options when installing00:39
baeglereaga: try disabling the "crash on first run" option during installation00:40
tomreynbaegle: i'm not sure you need them, but those cifs mounts lack dump and pass fields00:40
tomreynbaegle: i'd probably just comment those lines out until the system boots properly00:41
baegletomreyn: they are noauto00:41
tomreynoh whoops00:41
baegleBut yes, I can comment them out00:41
baegleSo, interesting comment from sarnold. I don't have an EFI filesystem on my drive, I don't think. Is that a possible problem?00:42
tomreyndepends on how you're meaning to boot00:43
baeglePretty sure I'm just doing straight BIOS because I don't need fancy00:43
baegleAnd I've been using this with Ubuntu without an EFI filesystem for years, so....00:44
tomreynyou do have short partition uuids, which suggests an mbr partition table00:44
baegleyeah, that sounds like something I remember doing back in day00:45
baeglewell, I guess I'm just gonna reboot and see what happens00:45
baegleback in 10m00:45
tomreyncrypttab seems fine to me00:45
sarnoldbaegle: hmm if you've got a systm where debconf had incorrect configuration settings for where to install grub (a surprising number of people did), you may need to do some corrective steps.. these instructions were prepared for 'simple' systems, but may be useful https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/KnowledgeBase/GRUB2SecureBootBypass#Recovery00:45
* baegle skrrrt00:45
baeglesarnold: What would the symptoms of this be, though? Seems like Grub is loading just fine for me. It just doesn't know what to do.00:46
baeglesarnold: It doesn't prompt to decrypt my volume before trying to use it and then, of course, can't find my volume group and then gets down with the busybox00:47
tomreynbaegle: is cryptsetup installed ?00:48
baegletomreyn: And reinstalled00:48
tomreynbaegle: can you show    apt list --installed linux* grub* crypt*00:50
sarnoldbaegle: this describes the symptoms of that grub misconfiguration https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+bug/1889509  "error: symbol `grub_calloc' not found."00:50
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1889556 in grub2 (Ubuntu Groovy) "duplicate for #1889509 grub-install failure does not fail package upgrade (and does not roll back to matching modules)" [Undecided,Fix released]00:50
baegletomreyn: https://termbin.com/w7ij00:50
baeglesarnold: I do not enter grub rescue. I get the grub menu just fine. It's the boot sequence for the image that fails00:51
sarnoldbaegle: alright, cool00:52
baeglesarnold: Thanks for calling it out. I appreciate you looking out for me00:53
sarnoldbaegle: and good job noticing my comment to someone else and wondering if it applied :) it's good instinct, pity it did'nt pay off :(00:54
baegleLinux never pays. unless you're redhat. or SCO00:54
tomreynbaegle: the package list looks good to me if you're bios booting00:54
baegletomreyn: I think i'll just reboot and come back here and cry into your shoulder when it doesn't work if that's alright with you00:55
tomreynsure, let me get my rain jacket quickly00:55
baegleCool. You do that. I'll reboot and practice breathing deeply00:56
baegleTomreyn: Failure01:02
baeglePrepare thy shoulder01:02
tomreynso what do you get to see there?01:03
baegleVolume group "xubuntu" not found01:03
baegleSame as it ever was01:03
tomreynso it drops you to busybox, with this message?01:03
baegleAfter timeout is reached01:03
tomreynhmm, we didn't check whether lvm2 is installed, can you check this after setting up the chroot?01:05
tomreynlsinitramfs should have    sbin/lvm   too01:05
baegleIt is, but I forgot to grub-install this time01:06
tomreynmaybe just post your lsinitramfs and i can compare with one i have for such a system01:06
tomreynyou don't need to grub-install if the verion of grub you have installed is good01:06
tomreynand it's installed at the right place (mbr in your case)01:07
baegleReinstalling lvm201:07
tomreynmaybe you can share your lsinitramfs, too, and i can compare to a similar system i have access to01:08
baeglebaegle3 is cool, he's with me01:11
lotuspsychjean irc pet, thats new :p01:16
baegleUnfortunately he's pretty slow and can't fix the damn boot loader01:18
baegle3I'm trying!01:18
baegle3But seriously folks I cannot figure out why the initrd image doesn't try to decrypt the disk before stupidly looking for volumes it won't find01:21
masonbaegle3: Haven't followed, but did you set the initramfs in /etc/crypttab?01:22
tomreynbaegle3: i'm still comparing, but my 18.04 system has conf/conf.d/cryptroot but your 20,04 system does not01:22
masonbaegle3: That's the flag that tells the initramfs to deal with a cryptdisk.01:22
baegle3mason: what now? there's a crypttab flag for reminding initramfs to pay attention now?01:23
sarnoldhere's what I've got in my /etc/crypttab01:24
masonbaegle3: initramfs tag01:24
sarnoldluks1 UUID=8fda5814-5cf7-404b-9339-54088c28911b none luks,discard,initramfs01:24
masonbaegle3: for example: luksroot2 UUID=cd5d000e-9008-4b8b-8d99-645841e6c4ec none luks,initramfs01:24
masonthat initramfs tag is what says to care during initramfs01:24
masonwithout that, it won't be tried01:25
baegle3Well I'll be a monkey's uncle01:25
baegleMore like a monkey01:25
baegle3mason: if that works, I'm going to be very something01:26
baegle3brb, rebooting01:26
baegleGood, he's gone. God I hate that guy01:28
baegleBah. Didn't work. Same error01:28
sarnoldhe told me he likes you :(01:28
baegleOk, now I'm gonna hangout in busybox and talk to y'all from my mobile device01:29
baegleWhich is a blackberry running android, for those who care about physical keyboards01:29
tomreynbaegle: there is no "lib/cryptsetup/askpass" in your initrd01:29
baegleMy laptop has given up waiting for the device. I am now in busybox01:29
baegletomreyn: where would I find that while in busybox. Lib doesn't have a cryptsetup here01:30
tomreynbaegle: on 18.04, i think the path would be just lib/cryptsetup/askpass01:31
tomreynbaegle: i'll compare with a 20.04 with cryptsetup-luks now01:32
masonbaegle: Did you update-initramfs after changing crypttab?01:32
baegleMason: yes01:32
tomreynyes i have lib/cryptsetup/askpass on the 20.0401:33
baegleCryptsetup is nowhere in busybox using find+grep01:33
baegleOk, rebooting into rescue disk01:33
baegleAnd spawning that stupid pet again01:33

tomreynto the chroot?01:39
baegle71tomreyn: I just got the livecd rolling, gimme a couple seconds to get the chroot up01:39
tomreynsure. once you'Re ready, tell us how exactly you update the initramfs01:40
baegle71update-initramfs -c -k all01:42
tomreynok, i guess this should work01:43
tomreynnormally i'd only update the one that the system will boot into, so the others don't get overwritten01:43
baegle71lsinitramfs /boot/initrd.img|grep cryptsetup     returns nothing01:43
tomreynyes, this is wrong, now i still don't understand why it is so.01:44

tomreynyou didn't have this error message before?01:46
baegle71I didn't try to reinstall that package before, or if I did I missed the error output01:47
tomreynhmm, now i'm not sure what it wants to tell us, though01:47
baegleI have no idea how this happened, but somehow the volume name was linux and the config thought it was sda5_crypt01:49
tomreynsda5_crypt is what you have in crypttab, i think01:49
tomreynvolume lables should not matter01:50
baegleIt mattered01:50
baegleI'm back baby!01:50
tomreynyeay, i can go to bed!01:51

baegleI learned more, and I fixed it, thanks to you knowing where to look01:51

tomreyni'm not sure how this occurred exactly, it'd be interesting to learn more about it if you know01:52

masonbaegle: nice nice01:52
baegleI really don't know01:52
sarnoldbaegle: YAY!!01:52
sarnoldbaegle: nice persistence :)01:52
sarnoldbaegle: what exactly did you need to change to make it work?01:53
baeglesarnold: I changed /etc/crypttab, the first word was sda5_crypt but the luks volume was called linux. So I changed the first word to linux and it worked01:54
sarnoldbaegle: sweeet. thanks.01:54
sarnoldman :( where was that error message hours ago?01:54
sarnold!cookie tomreyn01:55
sarnoldoh man. I thoght we had a bot for that.01:55

grinchierhello all,   is there a usb wifi card I can buy that will work with secure boot?02:34
sarnoldgrinchier: there probably is something that'll just work; I'm not sure how exactly to find out which ones will Just Work and be reliable and so on .. but if you wind up needing a dkms package, you can still get secureboot to work, just with an on-computer key: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UEFI/SecureBoot/DKMS02:36
grinchierI found these directions here but for fedora  https://www.modio.se/installing-realtek-8821ce-driver-on-system-with-secureboot-enabled.html    i must of been doing something wrong02:37
grinchierI would just disable secure boot.  but the hp laptop in question magically re-enables secure boot after a week or two.02:37
grinchierhmm the one you linked I'll give a shot.  ty.02:38
grinchiersarnold if I disable secure boot in shim-signed,   will that fix my issue of it re-enabling itself in the bios?02:39
grinchieri'm thinking not lol02:40
sarnoldgrinchier: oh weird -- I hadn't heard of that before02:40
grinchierya i dunno wtf is going on.  its my sisters pc i set up ubuntu on it for my niece to do remote learning at her school02:40
sarnoldgrinchier: I think disabling it in the shim should work, anyway, someone went to the effort of documenting it with photos and everything :)02:40
grinchierevery week or two they call and tell me the wifi disappeared lol02:40
sarnoldso.. every three weeks we publish a new kernel02:40
grinchieroh you think that is what is happening?  lol02:40
sarnoldif it's a dkms module, or hand-built omdule, maybe it's not being rebuilt properly?02:41
sarnoldthe timing does make me wonder, anyway02:41
grinchierwell to fix it.  what I do is go in the bios and disable secure boot again02:41
grinchiermy sister is not pc saavy at all.  I might have to show my niece how to do it.02:41
grinchieri thought maybe someone in her house was doing it so i put a password on the bios.  didn't help LMAO02:42
grinchiersomeone earlier said it might be the cmos battery.  I dunno it is a crap laptop who knows.02:42
grinchierwindows was unuseable on it, and their windows was super trashed so i just put ubuntu on it02:42
grinchierbut ya it seems like it was about 3 weeks.  maybe when the kernel updates it re-enables secure boot?02:43
grinchierI'll try the shim thing and cross my fingers.02:43
sarnoldgrinchier: oh cmos battery is a decent guess02:45
sarnoldgrinchier: one thing that might help if you want to head down the new device route .. 'modinfo <modulename>' reports a bunch of information on a module02:45
sarnoldgrinchier: eg modinfo iwlwifi  dumps a ton of data on the intel wireless driver; it includes firmware names and device data.. you can guess a lot of device names from those firmware filenames, double-check they are in the linux-firmware package, and try to find something that looks promising02:47
grinchierso if I do the shim thing.  I don't have to disable it in bios right?02:48
sarnoldgrinchier: that's my expectation, yes02:50
grinchieroh man i hope so.  it seems too simple lol02:50
grinchierwill it have to be redone every 3 weeks?02:50
sarnoldgrinchier: I hope not :)02:58
grinchierlol me too02:59
grinchierman for the heck of it i went on amazon.  dont' think i will find a usb wifi adapter that will work with secure boot02:59
grinchierhave to give up on that dream lol03:00
grinchierwell tks for your help man.  I will try the shim thing03:01
grinchierhave a good weekend03:01
grinchierhmm Just read on reddit.  most people recommend panda wireless usb adapters03:04
grinchierfor linux03:04

beweeshi, how do I start gparted from CLI?13:50
sumagnayou have to install it, i think, at first13:54
sumagnabut if you want to install it for resizing root or something like that, then you would need a live usb13:55

MaikThothCastel: offtopic chat can be done in #ubuntu-offtopic if you don't have a ubuntu support question17:04
beweesMaik: is that the tool jayjo meant?17:09
beweesthought there's a tool like on ubuntu live usb where EFI partition is created automatically17:09
beweesbut I will create efi now manually, should I use vfat or ext2?17:10
Maikbewees: yep it is17:17
tomreynbewees: what's your overall goal there? you're not editing partitions on the sotrage you booted from, are you?17:17
tomreyn* storage media17:18
beweestomreyn: moving to a new SSD my rootfs that is17:18
beweesssd seems to die soon17:18
tomreynwhether you can predict this, or are predicting this correctly, could be a separate topic of discussion, but regarding the overall plan: the easiest approach can be to just do a fresh install to the new storage, then mount the file systems of the old storage and copy what you still need.17:19
tomreynyou'd need to resintall (and reconfigure) your software, though.17:20
tomreynif, however, you really prefer to re-use the existing installation, your approach of using a partitioning tool to create partitions (of the same or larger size than existing ones) first of all, would seem correct.17:22
arooniso i have an existing installation of ubuntu 20.04;  is there anyway to make it so my /home partition is encrypted?17:23
aroonihttps://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/04/how-to-encrypt-home-folder-in-ubuntu.html ? '17:24
tomreynthe next step would then be to either create file systems on the target and rsync the data from old to new ssd, or to copy a full image for each partition you'll keep.17:24
tomreynbewees: ^17:24
bewees tomreyn yeah, just wasn't sure if EFI should be vfat, fat32 or ext217:25
beweesI went for fat32, but I noted somewhere down that ubuntus wants ext217:25
tomreynarooni: i recommend not to use ecryptfs these days.17:26
tomreynbewees: the efi system partition needs to be a FAT file system, i think all of 8, 16, and 32 are allowed by the standard (but, sadly, some implementations differ from the specification). FAT32 is probably a safe bet17:29
beweestomreyn: do you know if ubuntu by default install the rootfs on ext4 with LVM or without?17:30
beweesgoing to use lvm17:31
beweesnvm :-)17:31
tomreynbewees: ubuntu 20.04 desktop installs without LVM unless you sopecifically choose to use LVM or select FDE, i think.17:31
jayjoI'm trying to use avrdude on my ubuntu desktop, which requires a port option (-P) that I can't get to work correctly... I can't connect via avrdude to a usb serial device. First, I'm trying to use a udev rule to assign a nicer name. Is that symlink name under /dev in the udev rule my "port" name? I think port may be a DOS thing here17:35
jayjoIn setting that udev rule, should I just plug the device in and see what character file appears in the /dev directory? The command 'udevadm info --name=/dev/ttyS1 --attribute-walk' is helpful to set the rule, but how about getting the /dev/ttyS1 initially17:41
convergewhat do you use for screen saver?]17:51
technotcan anyone give me some quick pointers on whats the best way to move an ubuntu uefi system disk to a new disk? google has 1001 answers.. i thought i knew: while running the "old" ubuntu, i repartitioned the new drive, swapped the uuids in fstab, and ran grub-install on the new drive, rebooted to a usb live stick, and then cp -avf contends of old efi partition to new efi partition and same with old root to17:59
technotnew root. but when i look over some random files in /etc/grub.d i see the files are littered with uuids.. do they need to be changed manually as well? anything else im forgetting? ubuntu 20.10 btw17:59
oerheksyes, on could clone the partitions, and boot with live iso and update the new UUID in fstab18:01
oerheksthe command 'blkid' gives the new valid UUIDs, easy to copy to fstab, then run update-grub and voila18:02
technotwell, i allready updated the uuids in fstab manually, was only two:) and the contents of my two partitions are copied, might as well be clones, and grub installed to the new disk after18:05

hydrianNow some of LVs are not starting but others are at boot. All of the LV I'm mentioning are apart of the same VG.20:07
hydrianSome of the LVs are getting timeouts on boot. Since one of them is for the /var partition, it make the host go in to rescue mode.20:08

jayjoI've set a udev rule to create a symlink to /dev/chameleon with this rule: `ATTRS{product}=="Chameleon-Mini", SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="16d0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="04b2", GROUP="dialout", MODE="0775", SYMLINK+="chameleon"` but my symlink, which does show up, has root:root ownership. I can only access the device on screen /dev/ttyACM0, screen /dev/chameleon (or the /dev/bus/usb/003/023 which is the20:56
jayjosymlink) can't be connected to20:56
jayjoeven if I correct the persmission, screen can only seem to communicate with the /dev/ttyACM0 device, the /dev/bus/usb/002/026 is not readable21:04

=== gr33n7007h is now known as al2o3-cr
TJ-jayjo: you're only setting GROUP on a symlink - that doesn't affect the target. Your rule should be creating a full character device node with the correct major and minor21:11
jayjoI think I may be identifying the device incorrectly, although that is the udev rule that the manufacturer recommended (https://cdn.statically.io/gh/emsec/ChameleonMini/master/Drivers/98-ChameleonMini.rules). I'm just naive about it, could my machine require a different rule to match the same piece of hardware? Maybe if I connect through the front of my tower vs the back?21:19
jayjoBecause I did notice the /dev/ttyACM0 device is a tty subsystem and the other is a usb subsystem. I can only connect via screen (serially) to the tty subsystem21:19
TJ-jayjo: precisely - compare the MAJOR MINORs of the /dev/ttyACM0 and /dev/bus/usb/...21:21
jayjohttps://bpa.st/5WGA I do see that the MAJOR MINOR is different21:21
TJ-jayjo: use 'udevadm monitor' or 'udevadm info' to see what udev does to create the /dev/ttyACM0 when the device is plugged in.21:22
jayjoI see the creation of the /dev/ttyACM0 here: https://bpa.st/D56Q with udevadm monitor ... is there a way to see what rule actually triggers?21:27
jayjoI had referenced this page: https://wiki.debian.org/udev but doens't mention about major/minor21:29
TJ-jayjo: see "man systemd-udevd" and "man udev.conf" for ways to enable udev debugging - log can be viewed with "journalctl -u systemd-udevd"21:32

simonquigleyThe interesting thing to note is it tries a bunch of IPv6 addresses first, and then tries IPv4 addresses21:53

tomreynsee above. ;-)22:54

deadromfair point22:55
deadrombit strange though that everything else is clockwork but only mc borks don't you think?22:56
tomreynnot if it's got to do with ram, no. you'd get all kinds of unexplicable situations22:56
tomreynit could also be networking or storage related, though, but then i'd hope to see error messages22:57
