drea_mertyour boot drops to the initramfs shell00:00
drea_merti recently got this error on my Lubuntu too00:01
drea_mertfsck found a bad superblock after interrupting startup due to long waiting time00:02
drea_mertmaybe a similar problem but not sure sorry00:03
wxlso that's focal00:03
wxli can't remember if we were enforcing installation media checking at that time00:03
wxlcan you confirm the validity of the installation media in one way or another?00:03
lubot<David Heinrich> It's already installed on hd00:04
wxlthat's not the question00:04
wxlinvalid installation media can lead to an invalid installation00:04
wxlassuming you can some hints might lie here https://askubuntu.com/questions/926738/cant-load-failed-to-claim-resource-100:09
wxlin any case this shouldn't be a lubuntu-specific problem, but more of an ubuntu one00:09
dahlyahaving issues with mirror lists on Lubuntu Eoan, just realized it is unsupported since July. Does it make sense / is it safe to edit /etc/apt/sources.list with links such as http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu ?00:24
lubot<David Heinrich> @lubuntu_bot thanks will try to see if I can find the USB stick I installed from, but it has booted. It is sporadic and sometimes succeeds in booting, sometimes not01:08
wxlthat's all the more reason to believe there's a problem with the installation. i'd reinstall01:09
wxl(or it means you have physical damage)01:09
lubot<David Heinrich> Would i have to backup and restore my data or could I install and keep my user data? I was also trying to access my Bitwarden locked windows partition from Lubuntu with no luck01:38
wxloh if you're mixing and matching windows with lubuntu that might possibly be your problem right there01:38
wxlyour data might include invalid data, so backing up isn't the greatest of ideas01:39
lubot<David Heinrich> Good thing almost all of it is on windows for now.01:48
lubot<David Heinrich> Lubuntu is on a m2 nVme SSD01:49
lubot<David Heinrich> Windows is on a 3.5" Samsung SSD01:50

lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> Hi guys  … When I install nvtop  … it removes my current nvidia driver  … and it install an incompatible one  … is this normal behaviour?18:47
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/RVxNSccSKd/18:47
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> (Photo, 710x418) https://i.imgur.com/eKrBaEJ.jpg18:48
wxlthe ubuntu package is tied to specific versions of libnvidia-compute18:52
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> so this is normal than?18:53
wxlyou seem to be using versions of THAT from outside of the ubuntu repositories18:53
wxlif you would want a version of nvtop compatible with THOSE, you should get it from that outside repository18:53
wxlnvtop in groovy (in the ubuntu repositories) depends on 41818:54
wxlso, yep, totally normal18:55
wxlhowever, it may not be ideal18:55
wxlthe lesson to learn here is to be careful when mixing and matching repository sources18:55
wxlfor example, i prefer virtualbox from the upstream source rather than ubuntu. i can make the mistake of installing stuff from the ubuntu repositories that can wipe it out though18:56
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> @wxl [<wxl> however, it may not be ideal], might not ... … Last night - after a reboot -  … my pointer was very slow compared to the mouse … I moved my hand and I had to wait for the pointer to arrive  … so i purged all current nvidia drivers for that session … and tried to reinstall the 455 driver  … but ubuntu-driver dev18:58
lubotices didn't work anymore  … nor ubuntu-driver autoinstall  … had to reinstall the whole system … so not  … might not be ideal18:58
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> I have a rtx 3070  … i need the 45518:59
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> (Photo, 710x438) https://i.imgur.com/C5ZN5Lq.jpg I'm going to try a reboot  … Hopefully I was able to reverse it19:01
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> no harm done19:02
lubot<Michaël Van Bogaert> thanks for the explaination19:02
lubot<Fairnandes> @kc2bez [You will have to log out and back in if you haven't done that.], Still doesn't work19:02
wxl@Fairnandes for those of us not on Telegram, you might want to give some context, especially after two days of silence19:08
wxl@Fairnandes anyways your OpenBox config might be helpful19:09

Guest68438Hi I have an old laptop (AMD C-50 - dual 1 GHz - Radeon 6250 GPU).  I have Lubuntu Groovy Gorilla installed and Chromioum with vaapi so HD youtube videos pay smooth.  I wanted check how Lubuntu handles Ubuntu HWE.  ..specifically the 2021 March version as I would like a new Mesa / Xorg stack.21:05
Guest68438Does Lubuntu 20.10 and 20.04 just pick latest HWE packages once Ubuntu releases 20.04.2 ?21:06
Guest68438OR since I'm on Groovy 20.10 do I need to wait for 21.04 for a new HWE stack ?21:11
Guest68438The Lubuntu Manual is not clear if "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y" is needed for HWE releases.21:15
guivercGuest68438, Lubuntu 20.04.2 (, Ubuntu & other flavors too) is built using the 20.10 stack.. so the stack that currently exists in 20.10 is what will make it way to 20.04.2; not the other way around21:24
guiverc21.04 will be released, then work will occur migrating that stack to 20.04.3 etc...21:24
guivercHWE LTS release is always after the the interim release, as it uses the interim release's stack (20.04.2 used 18.10's stack thus was released some time after 18.10)...21:25
guiverc11-jan-2021 is the current release date for 20.04.2 if I recall correctly  (using 20.10's stack)21:27
guivercwhen 21.04 is released, none of that stack is backported to 20.10; as you'll need to migrate to it within 3 months,,, it's moved to the 20.04.3 yes eventually; but 20.10 will be EOL & users have upgraded to 21.04 & have it anyway21:28
Guest68438Ah OK so since I'm on 20.10 I will not see an available new HWE until I upgrade to 21.04.21:29
guivercyep, you have already what will be new in 20.04.2,  yep you'll move to 21.04 to get next stack and still possibly beat most 20.04.3 users getting it  (you have 3 months from 21.04's released before 20.10 will be EOL)21:30
Guest68438OK that works I'll keep this old laptop on the latest non-LTS release.  I keep my modern Laptop on 20.04 LTS.  Thanks!21:30
guivercyou're most welcome21:31
guivercAugust-5th is 20.04.3's date... 21.04 comes out April-2021.. you'll have it first unless you continue to use 20.10 whilst it's EOL.21:33

RyuKurisu[m]I'm not feeling very adventurous, but does anyone know what would happen if I removed XScreenSaver?22:52
tomreynyou'd no longer have this screensaver22:52
RyuKurisu[m]Okay, but would I still be prompted for my password after suspend?23:00
RyuKurisu[m]So SDDM doesn't take over?  Sad23:03

kc2bezThe choice is yours.23:06

wxlRyuKurisu[m]: the only reliable locking solution is xscreensaver anyways23:07
RyuKurisu[m]I'm glancing at GNOME screensaver, but it has a few more dependencies23:09
wxlit's also not reliable23:10
wxlat least if you TRULY care about the reliability of your screen locker23:10
