lapion Linux/ubuntu has been getting a lot of problems with buffer/swap bloat;I have a system with 16GB of ram and 32GB of swap ( in csase of future ram upgrades and/or unexpected ram leaks ) and the system becomes unresponsive and even the mouse starts to respond like stirring a spoon through honey, and even the keyboard becomes unresponsive while top shows there is enough "available" memory hoiwever it's all used by "buffers/cache" and much01:15

cluelesspersonunverified, but it seems to occur as a result of chrome running02:02
BlueEaglecluelessperson: I guess a picture of what it should look like wouldn't go amiss, but ti appears that the HexChat window is moved so the top of it is above your display and I assume is moved back down.02:06
BlueEaglecluelessperson: Do you have more than one screen and are they aligned with the same top row?02:06
cluelesspersonBlueEagle, it's a single screen and I'm not modifying it at the time02:07
cluelesspersonand yeah, typically hexchat is just maximized while I use it.02:08
BlueEagleIt's not something stupid like the mouse cursor going to the bottom of the screen or a corner or some such that activates something?02:14
cluelesspersonBlueEagle, however the mouse cursor is changing from arrow to a hand.02:20
cluelesspersonso perhaps not graphics issue02:20

NormCan anyone help me understand how syslog messages go to both rsyslog and to journalctl? Does one hand off to the other?02:50
BlueEagleNorm: My understanding is that both syslogd and systemd listen for the same events and then write to their respective storages.03:08
NormBlueEagle: that makes sense, just wanted to make sure one isn’t filtering events before they get to the other. Thanks!03:08

lusrxi have no network connection with intel i225-v on ubuntu 20.04. is the problem with ubuntu? igc driver? or my intel network firmware?11:31
lusrxi found this 6 months old discussion on the topic: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1244745/ubuntu-20-04-intel-network-connectivity-issue-bug-in-igc11:32
lusrxsome users suggest (original poster) the problem is with intel firmware (would not be the first time...) and other suggest it's because of running too old linux kernel... i don't know what to think or what to try (if anything), i just want my new board to work with ubuntu 20.04 (not sure where to turn for help... maybe asus who made it)11:34

fradi want to download a picture, but this picture is the sum of 4 pictures (hope that makes sense). these 4 images are put together, like they are an individual picture. Computer is small, which means if I reduce zoom, the image gets ridiculously small. With screenshot I cannot get the whole image. How could I donwload the whole picture?11:56
moro@frad could you try Google image search?11:57
moroYou could right click on a picture and search it with google11:57
moroMaybe you will find another picture like this one and it should be easier to capture it11:58
moroHowever, i'm searching someone to talk about package in a ubuntu distribution, if someone could answer me i have to delete package with the command "sudo apt remove package-name" but I have problem with package wich I forgot the name12:00
moroSomeone could help me please guys?12:09
tomreynwhat's "a ubuntu distribution"?12:12
moroMaybe i was wwrong12:13
moroI have a linux distributin called ubuntu12:13
moroI have ubuntu :-)12:14
moroJust try to know how to delete package with this following command "sudo apt remove package-name"12:14
moroI forget a few package names and I'm trying to delete if off my computer12:15
tomreynapt search "some functionality"     may help you identify the package.12:17
tomreynalternatively, if you can describe the package you're trying to identify here, maybe someone can suggest which package you're referring to.12:18
lusrxtomreyn: how do i do that from a computer where the network connection is not working?12:21
tomreynlusrx: you don't. there's "apropos", which may work for this. also https://packages.ubuntu.com12:23
moro@tomreyn thanks for you help, i will try your command i'll tell you if it's working :-)12:24
lusrxtomreyn: what is apropos? do i search for it on that site? i found nothing12:26
tomreyn$ dpkg -S $(which apropos)12:27
tomreynman-db: /usr/bin/apropos12:27
tomreynman-db is the package containing / providing manual pages for many commands12:28
ubottuThe "man" command brings up the Linux manual pages for the command you're interested in. Try "man intro" at the  command line, or see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal | Manpages online: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/12:28
tomreynit is not installed by default, though.12:28
lusrxok. i'm not sure how this can help me, but i save the output of journalctl -b to my usb. i will upload it now.12:32
tomreynright now you don't know what exactly is not working. inspecting system logs can be a good way to get a better understanding of what's not working properly.12:34
tomreynand once you know this, it may become feasible to target this particular problem and fix it.12:35
tomreynhmm this is hardly readable with those extra line breaks.12:36
tomreynlusrx: are you the same person as moro?12:36
tomreynthis system is running a kernel image from july, not exactly current.12:37
lusrxtomreyn: no. i don't know who that is. sorry about the line breaks, here's a new link: https://dpaste.org/yyMP12:40
tomreynapparently those line breaks are just introduced by the dpaste pastebin. i was able to make the log readable by copying the content off this html page into a file and reading this with a local file viewer.12:41
tomreynthis second link also works, thanks12:41
lusrxi have updated the system bios to version 1401 (i think it was) from 3 dec 2020, it's the latest. it did not help. the weird thing is that the link/act lights on the ethernet port blink or light up (i don't recall exactly) during boot. but then right before i sign in they go dead, and when signed in i have no network.12:43
lusrxso you suggest i update the kernel to a later version? i'm not sure how to do that without network connection.12:46
lusrxit's worth noting that this intel network chip is also not working in latest windows 10 (20h2), not until i do the leg work and install the driver from asus/intel (available only for windows).12:48
tomreynlines 774 and 794 and following is where the intel igc driver loads and reports on its initialization12:51
tomreynyes you should generally install kernel updates when they become available. is this a fresh ubuntu 20,04 installation, lusrx? if so, whats the name of the installer ISO image file you used?12:52
tomreynlusrx: ^12:52
tomreynenp3s0 is the name of the network device after initialization.    nmcli d    should show it.12:53

tomreynBlueShark: the open source amdgpu driver that scomes with ubuntu out of the box should work just fine. if the hardware is too new, a newer kernel may already fix that.17:44

MaikKali_Yuga: seriously? Like you run any app selected from the menu17:45
tomreynBlueShark: then follow their instructions to get back to where you were before you did this.17:45

BlueSharktomreyn: after reboot, it's stuck at /dev/sda5: clean... X blocks....18:38
BlueSharkNot able to even login now18:38
BlueSharkWent to recovery and attempted a fsck, didn't help18:38

yassinetieinv: thanks there is none18:51
yassineits a bit confusing everything related to xen on ubuntu is different18:52
mulletmanquick crontab question, what is the difference between the day of the month and day of the week? That is, if I specify the day of the month, do i put a 0 for day of the week to make sure they dont conflict?19:00
ixilis there a way to a package that provides one package that conflicts with the one you actually want installed?19:02
ixile.g. On focal I have a python3-foo that conflicts with python-foo, I made an equivs packages that provides python-foo but depends on python3-foo19:03
ixilbut installing with dpkg --force-19:04
ixilbut installing with dpkg --force-conflicts means apt breaks (which breaks some other scripts beyond my control))19:04
ixilis there anyway to get around this?19:04
BlueEaglemulletman: I think that is explained in the man page for crontab.19:26
geosmileI just ran a do-release upgrade on a 16.04 machine - with X on. And in the middle of the upgrade, the terminal fonts became unreadable.19:27
geosmileI guess I cant do anything about it anymore?19:27
compdocgeosmile, are you connected remotely?19:31
BlueEaglemulletman: The day of a command's execution can be specified by two fields - day of month, and day of week. If both fields are restricted (ie, aren't *), the command will be run when either field matches the current time.19:31
geosmilecompdoc, yes, I am19:33
geosmilecompdoc, I mean - the do-release-upgrade - I ran from the machine terminal19:34
geosmileI can connect remotely and yes I am connected. When I ssh to the machine, I see it already shows 18.0419:34
compdochow do the fonts on the console look?19:34
geosmileeverything is a rectangle19:34
BlueSharkI have a quad HD monitor, but xrandr  shows "Screen 0: minimum 1024 x 768, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768" - How can I set the proper resolution?19:35
compdocwas it using a different language?19:35
geosmilecompdoc, no - do-release-upgraded did something19:35
geosmilecompdoc, https://askubuntu.com/questions/843533/text-has-turned-to-boxes-in-ubuntu-16-0419:36
geosmilethe problem is that after it runs things it might ask me yes/no questions about configurations which I can not answer anymore19:36
geosmileif i reboot, I do hope the machine does not get toasted19:36
compdocdid you set permissions as mentioned in that page?19:37
geosmilecompdoc, https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1416265 - this is similar to what my characters look like19:37
geosmilecompdoc, I've not - not yet19:37
compdoccheck the perms now, and compare to what they suggest19:38
compdocyou can just find the fonts without changing by doing:  find /usr/share/fonts -iname '*.ttf' -type f19:39
compdocbut start at root by doing cd /19:40
geosmileI just ran those commands - will have to check if the fonts got fixed19:42
geosmileam away from my computer - am currently remote19:42
geosmileUbuntu 18.04.5 LTS - lsb_release -a is already showing that19:43
compdocI did that, but now upgraded to 20.0419:44
ZythyrHi I am kinda in the process of considering switching from Win10 to Ubuntu for daily use but I have some quetions before I start switching over. I always read that non-LTS receive updates more freqently (6 months). But what does it mean by receives updates? Is it the OS features? Is it the apps that come pre-installed? Is it custom applications I installed? Also like Win10, does ubuntu19:49
Zythyrautomatically do updates in the background every few days or do I always have to manually go to termainal and do "sudo apt updadte" then "sudo apt upgrade"?19:49
zykotick9yassine: qemu-xen <- doesn't make a lot of sense, qemu is a hypervisor and xen is a hypervisor - they do the same thing.  Could it be libvirt and/or virt-manager you are looking for?  I'm not sure if libvirt/v-m request anything specific for xen, put i'm pretty sure it supports it.  I've never played with xen myself, got turned off quickly when I looked into it.19:51
EriC^^Zythyr: it usually updates every few days or so, but it pops a window up and asks to confirm to install, you can set it to update however often19:51
yassinezykotick9: trying to create  domU but xen claims the following: libxl: info: libxl_create.c:102:libxl__domain_build_info_setdefault: qemu-xen is unavailable, using qemu-xen-traditional instead: No such file or directory19:53
zykotick9yassine: ya, domU <- that's xen stuff I just don't grok (understand).  best of luck.19:54
ZythyrEriC^^ Thank you. But in regards to the what is meant by LTS vs. non-LTS, what does it mean to "receive updates"? Like are tehse updates to OS features or it also includes updates to other applications19:57
yassinezykotick9: thanks anyway!19:57
zykotick9Zythyr: "updates/support" could be translated into "security support" (aka suggested to actually use).  I'd describe LTS as meaning "reinstall much less often, but have older software by the end".19:59
matsamanLTS is like a public license to be lazy and crap at updating20:00
EriC^^Zythyr: i think it meant that non lts are released every 6 months20:01
zykotick9^ not really!  You still need to get security updates, you just won't have the newest version of program X.20:01
EriC^^Zythyr: i use an lts release and i get package updates every few days, so it cant be packages get updated every 6months20:01
ZythyrEriC^^ zykotick9 Thank you. So by package updates, does that mean regular programs that don't come preisntalled?20:18
EriC^^Zythyr: yup20:21
ZythyrSo aside from receiving more frequent "secureity" updates, what is actual difference between LTS and non-LTS? Does non-LTS have "new and more OS features" than LTS?20:38
oerheksLTS uses the stable branch.20:39
oerheksand the rest already mentioned.20:39
oerheksand LTS would not get new features, just big fixes .. unless there is a reason to file a !SRU20:39
ubottuStable Release Update information is at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates20:40
ubottupastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit20:43
pillager86I need help, every time I try to sudo apt install something it keeps saying "Waiting for cache lock: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend."20:49
Zythyroerheks But just to confirm these features are related to the OS features and NOT other 3rd party applications such as VLC, GIMP, Inkscape, etc...?20:50
jeremy31pillager86: Do you have another update program or software installer open?20:52
pillager86jeremy31, i am not sure. i tried to kill process 1461 that is holding it20:52
pillager86"Waiting for cache lock: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend. It is held by process 1461 (unattended-upgr)" i probably shouldn't kill it20:53
pillager86I just wish I could check the progress of it, assuming it's installing update behind the scenes.20:53
pillager86Livepatch experienced an error it says in the livepatch status bar20:54
pillager86I'm gonna try to restart, brb20:54
pillager86nevermind it started working somehow20:56
M4jnourhi there some one using pylxd?21:02
zykotick9Zythyr: the difference between LTS and non-LTS applies to the entire "repo" so that includes anything that you would "apt install"...  LTS will have older versions of vlc/gimp/inkscape then the non-LTS version (unless LTS is also the current release).21:08
oerheksvlc/gimp snaps bridges these differences.21:10
Zythyrzykotick9 Thank u for the clearification. I think i need to understand a little bit more on how repos work. Will look into it further21:39
Zythyrzykotick9 EriC^^ oerheks Thanks for the help21:39
roryI have 2 files, urls.txt and visited.txt, I want to make a new file not_visited.txt that contains all the lines from url.txt that are not in visited.txt, can I do this with standard tool like grep?21:39
EriC^^Zythyr: no problem21:40
EriC^^rory: you can do it with comm21:41
rorynice, thanks EriC^^ this is a new command to me, looks perfect, reading man now21:41
EriC^^rory: no problem21:42
geosmilecompdoc, did you have to manually move /etc/apt/sources to 20.04?21:47
geosmileSeems like mine are not updated automatically21:47
rory"comm -23 <(sort urls.txt) <(sort visited.txt) > not_visited.txt" - thanks again21:48
ForeverNoob[m]this is 20.04 server, is a segfault during updated a bad deal? https://paste.debian.net/1176782/21:48
geosmilehow can i replace all xenial referenecs in /etc/apt to bionic?21:49
ForeverNoob[m]exit status says 0 though21:49
jeremy31geosmile: sed will do it21:49
jeremy31or use a text editor find/replace all21:50
jpdsForeverNoob[m]: that's just the exit status of apt, not anything else within it21:50
jpdsForeverNoob[m]: Check the disks and memory21:50
ForeverNoob[m]jpds: nothing seems out of the ordinary: https://paste.debian.net/1176784/ though it could be memory since it's a VM21:51
geosmilejeremy31, is that safe to do automatically?21:52
jeremy31geosmile: probably not as it should have happened as part of the upgrade21:52
=== oerheks1 is now known as oerheks
Blade-Runnerhey, i was instructed last time to fix grub2 that booted win first instead of  ubuntu first to change it by entering a terminal command, what happened is now there is no win boot in grub, can someone help me change this?23:57
