tombertHi! I am having an issue with a little ubuntu server box that I'm running in my basement; I'm able to SSH into it just fine and whatnot, but I cannot seem to get an outside connection02:51
tombertif I do something like `ping google.com`, I get `ping: google.com: Name or service not known`02:52
tombertMy resolv.conf looks like `nameserver`02:53
tombertthis is a real problem, as i cannot get any updates or anything like that; the thing is just connected to my router via ethernet02:54

limboIs there a non-headachy way to get from an old-ass version of ubuntu to a recent version? The machine I'm on is rocking 17.04 and I want to update, ideally without doing a complete reinstall. I've already change the apt sources to old-releases.ubuntu.com, and that seems to allow apt to work, but do-release-upgrade still tells me there's no update available.03:02
nt0limbo: might be best suited by backing up your data, putting any custom configs in a git repo somewhere, and doing it fresh.03:06
nt0<--not an ubuntu poweruser but i've dealt with this sorta stuff in the past03:06
Bashing-omlimbo: the Prompt line in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades is set to normal ?03:08
limboBashing-om: It's set to prompt=lts does that matter?03:16
Bashing-omlimbo: Yup = matters heaps :D .. for this one instance you do want it set to normal, then once finally up to release 18.04 to get to 20.04 reset to "LTS".03:18
limboit started, but I get "An upgrade from 'zesty' to 'bionic' is not supported with this tool." after a time and do-release-upgrade terminates. not feeling hopeful.03:24

stunts513i'm a bit confused, does the current version of ubuntu's live linux kernel come natively with netboot support now?05:32
stunts513i might be asking that wrong because the instruction that mentioned this were citing the ubuntu live server installer iso, but i'm trying to cannibalize it for something else.05:34
stunts513actually never mind i think i found the legacy netboot kernel images for 20.04 laying around somewhere on the net. i use netboot over tftp + nfs for a pxe boot live os.05:43

Deyaa How to use reboot(); without root? I can reboot my system as a normal user but when I do it with c++ it doesn't work.09:00
ducasseDeyaa: when you use reboot as a normal user it calls systemd to shut down for you, which is running as root09:05
DeyaaNow I understand09:07
ducasseyou can probably call systemd from your code, there is a #systemd channel iirc09:07

estanhi all. i'm building custom kernels following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild#Kernel_Build_and_Installation since i'm bisecting to debug a problem we're having. i was just wondering, how can i make `make deb-pkg` produce a linux-modules-*.deb as well?10:33
estancurrently it produces only linux-image-*.deb and linux-headers-*.deb10:33
estani.e. i'd like to end up with the same set of debs like the mainline builds at https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/10:34
lotuspsychjeestan: we usually advice to test things with the !mainline kernels to debug bugs on ubuntu, instead of compiling kernels yourself10:37
lotuspsychjeestan: unless you would you to !contribute and help with the kernel team, there's also #ubuntu-kernel10:38
tomreynbisecting will require building kernels seperately, though10:39
lotuspsychjeestan: this bug you have, is it been filed in launchpad the ubuntu way? or an internal bug?10:39
estanyes, be believe we've narrowed it down to v5.4.13..v5.4.14, so we're about to bisect between those.10:40
estanit's an issue we see also with mainline kernels, we have not reported it in launchpad yet.10:40
lotuspsychjeestan: care to share what the bug is about?10:41
estanit is what looks like a complete CPU lockup, with nothing printed on dmesg (and nothing with netconsole logging either). it is happening on a specific set of industrial PCs that we use on our product, which have a i7-4770TE CPU.10:43
estanwe hit it when we moved to focal, so we're running with older kernels now as a workaround. the lockup can happen after a few hours, or after a couple of weeks, so it's been some work to bisect. but we're hopeful it is one of the x86 commits between v5.4.13..v5.4.14. we've had v5.4.14 lock up within a day, and have had v5.4.13 run fine for 3+ weeks.10:45
estanso we're about to bisect between them after christmas, and i thought i'd start compiling up some kernels in advance.10:46
lotuspsychjeestan: those kernel versions look funny, is that an ubuntu derivative?10:46
estanerr sorry! 5.3.13 and
lotuspsychjeestan: wich ubuntu release are you guys running?10:48
estanbut i was just wondering about `make deb-pkg`, if i'm supposed to get a linux-modules-*.deb out of it, in addition to the linux-image-*.deb and linux-headers-*.deb.10:48
estanthere are quite a few erratas for the CPU we're using, so we are looking into the possibility that there may be some that our BIOS has not worked around (talking to the industrial PC builder about that).10:50
estanbut in parallel, following the idea that it might be some kernel bug, so going to bisect v5.3.13..v5.3.14.10:50
lotuspsychjeestan: current focal kernel is 5.4.0-58 so not sure why you guys run lower kernels? you compile them your own or so?10:51
estanyes, like i said, we're using older kernels on the products on the machines in the field as a workaround. but this is for in-house testing, to narrow it down.10:52
lotuspsychjeestan: i think for kernel compile you might wanna try ##kernel10:53
estanthe lockup has been confirmed to occur with 5.4.0-58, so that is currently a "bad" version for us.10:53
lotuspsychjeestan: if you want ubuntu support, we strongle advice to file it the ubuntu way, so the kernel devs can also help debug on it10:54
estanalright, i wasn't sure if that was the place, since it seems to be about kernel development. but i'll ask in there.10:54
lotuspsychjeestan: #ubuntu-kernel also handles the development, but the ubuntu way10:55
estanyea, sure. we will file a launchpad bug eventually. at the moment we're following a good lead with this bisecting though, since we have kernel version that work well and those that don't. once we've narrowed it down we'll make a report.10:56
lotuspsychjeestan: so if you guys also get the lockup on -58 try ubuntu-bug linux10:56
lotuspsychjeestan: in my opinion it only benefits to help each other both way industrial & opensource community10:57
tomreynestan: #ubuntu-kernel is the right place to ask (i notice you did). you'll need to wait a while (hours, maybe days) to get a proper answer there - the kernel team may not be around during the weekend. (consider a commercial support contract.) personally, i don't think you get a separate modules package for mainline builds, but don't rely on me.10:59
estanabsolutely. i can file a bug now already, but it will take some time for us to write it up and give all the background information. we're quite sure this lockup is very specific and restricted to this particular industrial PC, the chipset it uses or the CPU / BIOS combo. i'm not sure someone without that HW would be able to help in debugging.10:59
estantomreyn: alright, thanks for the info. no worries, i'll idle in there.11:00
tomreyngood luck, that's an unfortunate debugging situation11:00
estanand don't worry, we will for sure file a launchpad bug eventually, because if it turns out it's a kernel bug, we'll want to get a fix into the kernel and try to get an SRU for the ubuntu kernel package, so we'll need to go through that process.11:01
estanheh yea. we've been debugging it for close to a year.11:01
estanit's not a big problem for us to run an older kernel on the machines in the field, but it's a bit annoying and we want to resolve the issue of course.11:02
ReintjeHey where would I ask a question about running commands on a minrcraft server through bash scripts? Is that even possible? Very odd question I know11:03
lotuspsychjeReintje: is this what you look for? https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Ubuntu_startup_script11:10
Reintjelotuspsychje: nope, that I can manage. What I mean is a way to (for example) run a script that bans someone from the server or gives them items or anything else that happes within the running java program11:11
TheRedRipperminecraft on ubuntu? fun11:12
ReintjeThanks for the help though, because it's probably a stupid question11:12
TheRedRippera banmod you mean?11:12
ReintjeTheRedRipper: why is it fun? As in: why would that be worthy of mention lol11:13
TheRedRipperfun to do11:13
TheRedRipperminecraft and ubuntu is fun11:13
ReintjeTheRedRipper: well I'll try to explain what I'm attempting11:13
ReintjeYeah it is fun I just thought I might have overlooked some major problem or something lol11:13
TheRedRipperwell go ahead, and explain11:13
ReintjeWell what I want to do is create a script that will check an API every x seconds and if it has updated information it spawns a mob on a minecraft server11:14
TheRedRipperthat prob exists somewhere11:15
TheRedRipperid suggest hitting up java, thats what mc runs on11:15
ReintjeSo for example, I'd get a twitter API and keep track of #zombie, so whenever someone tweets that it spawns a zombie11:15
TheRedRipperohhh like a discord-server bridge, but twitter11:15
ReintjeYeah I'll try java, but I wasn't sure if maybe ubuntu/linux has the answer for this11:16
TheRedRipperits mainly in java, since thats what MC runs on11:16
ReintjeTheRedRipper: yes something like the discord bridge except I'd like control over what it does11:17
TheRedRipperyeah... like i said java can help you11:17
ReintjeI bet it'd be fun to disable natural mob spawning and only have monsters appear when someone tweets that covid is a hoax lmao11:18
TheRedRippernot sure linux can solv the issue here11:18
ReintjeThanks for the help I'll ask there later today11:18

aroonihey folks ; i have a thinkpad bluetooth keboard attached to my ubuntu 20.04 laptop.   everything works EXCEPT for the cool scroll by holding the middle button down and the thinkpad button ... i know the keyboard works fine so its something about the intepreretation of it into ubuntu.  any ideas?20:26
white_magichey guys, I'm trying to use the 'column' command but it appears that on my Ubuntu installation, it's missing a few switches, like '-o', which let's you specify the output separator character. Can you recommend an alternate formatting utility? Or how to install a version of this utility that has that switch?20:31
BlueEaglearooni: I am not an expert in the field, but such things as fancy scrolls and media buttons (i.e. non-core function) might requrie hardware spesific driver. Have you tried it in Windows, and does the feature work there without installing any additional drivers?20:31
BlueEaglewhite_magic: `man columns` says that -s specifies the separators.20:32
white_magicBlueEagle: yes, it says that but it's actually for input separators. That option (which I actually use) pertains to how to parse input20:33
BlueEaglewhite_magic: unless I misunderstood you and you want columns to display something not in columns, but rather as a csv20:33
arooniBlueEagle: thanks for the response.  i DO know it works b/c prior to me upgrading my internal bluetooth 3.0 card to a 5.1 usb stick it worked fine.  could the new bluetooth adapter be the culprit?20:34
white_magicBlueEagle: the opposite. My input is a CSV. The output I get right now is quite nice, but I would just like to turn it into a table by specifying '|' as the output separator20:34
BlueEaglewhite_magic: If you have example input and desired output it would make it easier to understand what you want.20:36
white_magicsure thing, give me a second20:37
white_magicfor example: echo "a,b,c" | column -t -s"," .. this outputs "a    b     c". I would like it to become "a|b|c"20:37

BlueEagleagile_prg: I think it should work, because it tells your computer to look for that IP on eth0 and not the default gateway so my suggestion is to try it.22:12
agile_prgso just add the route like I did before?22:12

agile_prgheh ok22:20
agile_prgthat didn't work22:22
BlueEagleagile_prg: so what does `route` yeld now?22:22

agile_prgheh oops22:24
agile_prgany other ideas?22:26

ubottuagile_prg: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or https://ubuntuforums.org or https://askubuntu.com/22:28
BlueEagleagile_prg: I think we should try to set your own computer as the gateway for this IP so `ip route add via 192.168.84.XXX dev eth0` where XXX is the last octet to make this your IP22:31
BlueEagleagile_prg: Not at all sure if this will work though.22:31
BlueEagleagile_prg: If it does not then you may have to fiddle with a virtual device or find someone that know networking. :)22:32
BlueEagleagile_prg: https://networklessons.com/cisco/ccna-routing-switching-icnd1-100-105/ip-routing-explained might help too22:33
agile_prgheh ok22:33
agile_prgI don't know the octet thing your talking about22:34
BlueEaglean IP-address consists of four octets (values from 0 to 255).22:35
BlueEagleagile_prg: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/571187/ubuntu-server-virtual-network-interface-with-internet-access looks to be what you need. Create a new veth and give it the IP you set to your physical nic when it worked and then route traffic to or something through that. You can tighten the mask as hard as you want if you have to access some other 10.x.x.x-network in the future.22:39
SynfulAckI think my system updated on 2004 and when i opened chrome i didnt have my original tabs. Is that normal?22:39
agile_prgBlueEagle I appreciate your help, ya that did not work22:40
BlueEagleSynfulAck: Normally your personal settings are kept in your /home directory, and upgrading the system should not affect these. However if an application changes how they store stuff then what was in your /home directory will not be valid anymore.22:41
BlueEagleagile_prg: remember to remove any previous routes. If you !paste your `ifconfig` and `route` I can have a look.22:41
BlueEagleagile_prg: Also `networkctl status` might be useful22:43
BlueEagleagile_prg: I don't see any virtual interfaces set up.22:44
BlueEagleagile_prg: Oh, not using systemd-networkd? Are you on 18.04?22:45
agile_prgwell 20.04.1 to be specific22:45
BlueEagleagile_prg: Then I would expect networkd to be running unless you have disabeld netplan22:45
agile_prgnetworkd-dispatcher is running22:46
BlueEagleagile_prg: Ok, we'll try to work with what we got: `ifconfig veth0` and `route add -net netmask metric 1024 dev veth0`22:50
BlueEagleagile_prg: that should set up a virutal interface veth0 with the IP and then add a route  to the network via veth022:50
BlueEagleagile_prg: If that does not work, remove the previous routes and try to use the name eth0:0 in stead of veth022:52
agile_prgok one sec, starting fresh22:53
BlueEagleagile_prg: Are your network cards configured in /etc/network/interfaces ?22:53
agile_prgBlueEagle one sec, I can't set veth0 to because the other computer has that ip address22:54
agile_prgI need to set it to something like right?22:54
BlueEagleagile_prg: I thought your computer had that IP just a few moments ago. :)22:54
BlueEagleYeah, you want your IP to be something on the same subnet. I might have messed up 82 and 85 :)22:54
agile_prgit had the ip address of and then it could ping the computer I want to get into which has
agile_prgifconfig veth0 says no such device22:55
BlueEagleagile_prg: then try eth0:022:57
BlueEagleagile_prg: in stead of eth022:57
agile_prgok that worked, the network interface name is eno1 by the way22:57
agile_prgnot eth022:57
BlueEagleahh, well eno1:0 then I guess22:58
BlueEaglepoint is that we need a virutal one that can access stuff. :)22:58
octav1aHello. I'm trying to run a udev rule when I plug in my tablet, which runs a few things to fix where the pointer is aligned to. The problem is that the script, when udev runs it, makes an error "Failed to open display. Unable to connect to X server" How can I make the udev-initiated script run "as if it was running in my current open X session" ?22:58
BlueEagleagile_prg: If that now has that IP you can try to set up the route with dev eno1:0 as we tried first when it worked.22:58
agile_prgyes I do22:59
BlueEagleoctav1a: You probably don't want the script to requrie an X-application to run.22:59
BlueEagleoctav1a: i.e. the user that runs the script does not have an active X-session and can therefore not run an X-application, so check your script if it calls some X-applications and find a command line alternative.23:00
agile_prgBlueEagle on the route command what should I put for veth0, is it eno1:0 ?23:00
octav1aBlueEagle: the script runs two programs: 'xsetwacom' and 'xinput'   -- they are both "command line"23:00
BlueEagleagile_prg: eno1:0 would be the device we want to use.23:00
octav1a(but I would think, they DO still need access to the X session to work!)23:01
agile_prgit works!!!!!23:01
BlueEagleoctav1a: Both of them start with x, so both of them appear to be X-applications.23:01
BlueEagleagile_prg: You're welcome. :) Also I learned a lot about virtual interfaces in the process. :)23:01
agile_prgnow the big question, how do I make this automatic on bootup?23:02
octav1aBlueEagle: Yes, the problem is rather graphical in nature: the coordinates of the tablet stylus are offset incorrectly.23:02
BlueEagleagile_prg: are your network interfaces configured in /etc/network/interfaces ?23:02
BlueEagleoctav1a: I see. But the script needs to be run by the user when the device is connected, and not by the udev daemon. I am not sure how to trigger a user space script from an udev event, but I'll see if my google-fu can find out.23:03
agile_prgI do not have that file23:03
agile_prgwhich confuses me23:03
BlueEagleagile_prg: Ok, then it's some netplan stuff that is voodoo to me. :)23:03
SynfulAckBlueEagle, isnt there some location chrome stores the tabs incase of this?23:03
agile_prgI have directories if-down.d, if-post-down.d if-pre-up.d if-up.d23:03
BlueEagleSynfulAck: I would not know. I would guess ~/.chrome or somesuch23:04
BlueEagleagile_prg: /etc/netplan is the place for this.23:05
agile_prgoh wow23:05
BlueEagleagile_prg: https://linuxhint.com/ubuntu_20-04_network_configuration/23:05
agile_prgI am quite new to this23:05
Bashing-omagile_prg: ^^ so it's systemd-networkd, and config's under /etc/systemd/network/ .23:07
BlueEagleoctav1a: https://superuser.com/questions/582723/can-udev-somehow-trigger-zenity-for-a-logged-in-user-in-a-session - The last entry here shows how to run  a script in an X-session. Not sure if it will work for your case, though.23:07
BlueEagleBashing-om: An example on how to set this up would help a lot.23:10
Bashing-omBlueEagle: I have no experience with networkd - All I can do is blunder along with you. See: https://blog.ubuntu.com/2017/12/01/ubuntu-bionic-netplan for some examples.23:12
agile_prgI heard there was a way to record the screen in ubuntu 20.04.1 that is default installed23:16
agile_prghas anyone done that?23:16
lotuspsychjeagile_prg: gnome has an internal record function yeah23:16
agile_prgcan I invoke it from the command line somehow just curious?23:17
lotuspsychjeagile_prg: didnt do it myself, but i think so yes23:17
agile_prghas anyone used xrdp?23:18
octav1aBlueEagle: unfortunately, i've tried a number of small variants, but I'm not able to use that script, either. I get the same display errors when it gets to the "xhost" line.23:20
octav1aI've also tried the wrapper script and xauthority method described here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/65788/why-doesnt-xsetwacom-work-from-udev23:26
BlueEagleoctav1a: Sorry, but I mostly use ubuntu on my servers, so I don't really have any experience with X-servers, but I hope someone else will be able to help.23:27
agile_prghi all I ssh into an ubuntu server from another ubuntu server and when I use vi it types weird letters when I try to insert text23:39
agile_prgany ideas how I fix that?23:39
agile_prgpico works right23:40
agile_prgvim fixed it nm23:41
