stephenmac98summonner: thank you for the response. I have added the line to the /etc/sudoers file, but the command still gets rejected only when performed over an ssh connection00:05
stephenmac98So I think it's got to be something in my ssh configuration right?00:05
stephenmac98I think the core of the error message is "failed to talk to init daemon"00:06

IniGitmy verdaccio.service cannot create a file within /etc/verdaccio. Do services which need to write to files always have to have root persiomissions? Or what should I do? Tell the service to create the file in an other directory?01:59
IniGitIt needs to create and write to /etc/verdaccio/htpasswd02:00
IniGitI told the service that it runs as `User=ini`02:01
IniGitwhich is my user on the system02:01
leftyfbIniGit: try changing ownership/permissions of /etc/verdaccio02:12
IniGitleftyfb: Should a service always run as root?02:19
leftyfbIniGit: depends on your use-case02:20
IniGitleftyfb: I'm not sure wheter to do `ExecStart=/home/ini/Programs/node-v14.15.1-linux-x64/lib/node_modules/verdaccio/bin/verdaccio  --config /etc/verdaccio/config.yaml` or `ExecStart=/home/ini/Programs/node-v14.15.1-linux-x64/lib/node_modules/verdaccio/bin/verdaccio  --config /home/ini/.config/verdaccio/config.yaml`02:20
IniGitThe config says that the htpasswd file should be create dat `./htpasswd`02:21
IniGitleftyfb: What would be the right thing to do for verdaccio? Itz is a private package regsitry02:21
IniGit`User=root` or `User=ini`02:22
IniGitI mean when I start verdaccio via the cli without a service I also do not run it as root, because it does not have to write to /etc02:23
IniGitI mean I'm no server admin, but it makes no sense to me to run this as root only to just follow the conventions02:23
leftyfbIniGit: then don't run it as root. Or ... follow the verdaccio documentation02:24
IniGitleftyfb: There's not much documentation about it. It says to run it not as root, but also mentions to put the config into /etc/ which does not work, because it cannot write to the htpasswd file02:25
leftyfbIniGit: try changing ownership/permissions of /etc/verdaccio , as I've already suggested02:26

laptopusrTimvde: if it has the minimum requirements, it might work ?14:26
Timvdelaptopusr: I don't expect the hardware to be a problem (it's ~5 years old), it's more that the disco repositories are 404ing14:26
lotuspsychjeTimvde: its more adviced to upgrade your ubuntu releases before they go eol to avoid !usn security issues14:27
tomreynyou'll need to edit sources.list tp point all urls to old-releases.ubuntu.com14:27
Timvdelotuspsychje: I am aware, but sadly that didn't happen because reasons™14:29
Timvdetomreyn: Thank you, I'll try that!14:29
tomreynTimvde: so first just edit the url to point to the old archive mirrors, then update the existing release to the latest state. and only then edit it again and point to the next release (by editing the release codename), and then apply all updates again.14:31
tomreynas has been previously pointe dout, none of this is supported, you'll upgrade just with apt, which is not the same as using the standard upgrader (do-release-upgrade / update-manager)14:32
tomreynand if it fails, you may need to reinstall. so make sure you have backups.14:32
tomreynTimvde: ^14:32
laptopusryeah, have a backup... i never manged to update the OS without ending up formating and starting from 014:33

BikOS*i hope15:00
tomreyni don't think synaptic has a way to show this. even with CLI it's not easy to find out.15:00
BikOSI have POP installed on my new SSD with Windows, but with the POP systemd boot it does not give me the option to select the OS i want to boot into and logs to pop directly15:00
tomreynBikOS: since ubuntu doesn't do systemd-boot, and other distros are always a bit different, we generally only support ubuntu here.15:01
tomreynbut you can try in ##linux15:01

laptopusrthe question is how can i do it in terminal without X :)15:03
jeremy31BikOS: Do a search on using Ubuntu with systemd boot, it can be done15:07
tomreynlaptopusr: what i'd do is to ppa-purge all 3rd party repositories (and packages installed from there). then, only once that's completely done, install and run apt-forktracer15:12
tomreyn... to identify additional deviations15:13
laptopusryeh i'm asking how to do your first step...............15:15
tomreynlaptopusr: apt policy tells you which repos are configured15:17
tomreynthose not pointing to ubuntu.com (or official mirrors) are 3rd party15:17
laptopusrthat is easy, how do i know which packages are from them15:18
tomreynyuo really cant know this for sure, since different repos can provide the same packages, at same or different package versions15:19
laptopusrlet's start with a not sure list, which i can manually go and check15:20
tomreynwhat synaptic show you there is "if you were to install this given package now, which repositoy you have now configured would provide it"15:20

tabby_sshfs doesn't like to stay up in my experience, which is why I needed to use autofs to reset the connection when said folder needed to be accessed19:06
tomreynif you want file systems to be unmounted automatically after a certain time of not being used, automount is what comes to my mind.19:07
tabby_I specifically do not want them to be unmounted ever, if possible19:07
tomreynthe nfs man pages discuss the behaviour and how you can modify it (for different NFS protocol versions) in great detail.19:08
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/19:08
tabby_yea I can take a look. Sifting through man pages *grumbles*19:09
newdimensionAnyone here has restored a Clonezilla image to VirtualBox machine?19:22
compdocI've done it with KVM19:23
compdocshould work19:23
newdimensioncompdoc: I'm getting an error that the partition is illegal. I'm going through a third time and we'll share the exact wording in a minute19:23
compdocnewdimension, boot gparted and set the partition type to mbr or gpt, depending on the original disk19:24
newdimensioncompdoc: Is that a required step? I just created an empty virtual disk19:25
compdocnot usually, but sometimes it can be an issue when the disk cant be seen or used19:25
newdimensionI can select the VBOX harddisk at the prompt asking to choose the target disk19:26
newdimensioncompdoc: I went to advance mode and selected "use dd to create partition table" (I'm paraphrasing). It looks like it worked19:28
newdimensioncompdoc: It was able to restore /dev/sda1. Then it went on to "Restoring partition /dev/sda5" and it errors "Unable to find target partition "sda5"19:31
oerheksvirtualbox image is just a .vdi file, why clonezilla to back it up?19:31
newdimensionoerheks: I'm testing a backup of a disk I've made and I don't have a spare HDD19:32
newdimension(testing being able to restore)19:32
compdocnewdimension, are you restoring partitions instead of the whole disk?19:32
makara1what is kdeconnectd doing on my computer? I don't remember installing it19:32
newdimensioncompdoc: I'm not. But I'll detail my choices as I attempt this again19:33
oerheksmakara1, easy answer to find? https://community.kde.org/KDEConnect19:33
freebench__hey, a while ago installed ubuntu 20 on an old laptop, now I've realized that the su pass is lost. Are there any other options but reinstall the thing ?19:33
oerheksand -d stands for the deamon19:34
ubottuForgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords19:34
oerheksfreebench__, ^^ easy to resolve19:34
newdimensioncompdoc: I'll share all my choices, but the relevant one is "restoredisk" and that's the one I'm choosing19:34
oerheksi hope you did not choose encryption19:34
makara1oerheks: yeah, but im running ubuntu 20.04, so what does Ubuntu need it for?19:36
newdimensionMy choices: https://dpaste.org/6Qr319:36
freebench__oerheks, thx19:36
pjshrmm, still dumping core when viewing a video file. Any ideas here (gdb): https://paste.sr.ht/~petersanchez/5eea9a762e1ee64ab6a53d0c0b98d02a21bdf3b519:38
oerheksmakara1, a KDE programm installed on gnome might pull it in?19:38
newdimensionIf I don't change the settings in advance (i.e. use dd to create partition table). I get The partition table in this disk is illegal/invalid: /dev/sda. Does this partition table fit this disk *disk name* Is this disk too small: /dev/sda ?19:38
makara1christmas, i need to be more careful19:40
compdocgenerally with clonezilla, its best to choose the defaults and not set any of the expert options.19:40
compdocbeginner mode19:40
newdimensioncompdoc: right, but I get the same error. This is a screenshot for reference https://imgur.com/a/jEW7eYi19:41
compdocnewdimension, when you start clonezilla, theres an advnaced menu to deal with uefi partitions. Ive never used it, but you may need to19:42
newdimensioncompdoc: Are you referring to the initial splash screen?19:43
jeremy31newdimension: That doesn't appear to be a EFI system on that drive19:45
compdocnewdimension, are you letting clonezilla create the paritions? looking at your image, it asks if the partition is too small19:47
newdimensionShouldn't running in beginner mode do that?19:47
compdocmaybe there are partitions on the disk already?19:47
newdimensionThe virtualbox one? I just created an empty disk19:48
compdocthen should not have any partitions19:49
compdoc"If your machine comes with uEFI secure boot enabled, you have to use AMD64 (X86-64) version (either Debian-based or Ubuntu-based) of Clonezilla live."19:49
oerhekscompdoc +119:50
jeremy31Clonezilla will not automatically resize smaller19:50
newdimensionHow can I know if the source machine had uEFI secure boot? It had Windows XP on it for reference19:51
jeremy31Windows XP would not be Secure Boot or UEFI19:52
compdocif its a 64bit vm or computer, always use amd6419:52
newdimensionI'm using this version of clonezilla clonezilla-live-2.7.0-10-amd64, and I just loaded gparted and deleted the result of the previous partial restore19:53
newdimensionDo you recommend that I leave it unallocated or should make one partition?19:53
jeremy31Is the virtual drive the same size as the original disk?19:54
newdimensionjeremy: I made it bigger but dynamically allocated19:54
jeremy31newdimension: Clonezilla should be able to restore to an empty drive.  I have cloned to brand new drives19:55
newdimensionjeremy31: Ok, about to run Clonezilla another time19:57
newdimensionIt looks like running gparted did the trick20:01
pjsfor anyone interested, turns out my issue is from this still unresolved bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/187621920:13

matsamanand that's why open source is the best20:13
mindful_idiotHey guys, being intrigued by Richard Stallman and his talks about GNU license -- decided to install Ubuntu on a VM. Any recommendations on where to start in getting acquainted with Linux generally?23:03
matsamanmindful_idiot: the best part of just using it is the package manager23:04
matsamanmindful_idiot: so install something, then uninstall something23:04
matsamanmindful_idiot: try using something while you uninstall it23:04
matsamanmindful_idiot: check out apt-file and dpkg -S for finding packages based on executable names you think exist or should exist23:05
matsamanmindful_idiot: you could get deep into the benefits of open free software with apt-src: https://wiki.debian.org/apt-src23:06
matsamanmake your own customizations to software you use23:06
Blade-Runneri'm running Ubuntu 20.04 opening livepatch gives an error message ubuntu has experienced an internal error. and askes me if i want to send a report, each time over 20 times i have sent a report but nothing has changed. any way to fix this?23:07
matsamanBlade-Runner: a report is only going to send info to humans, it's not going to magically fix it23:10
Blade-Runneri get that23:10
Blade-Runnerbut what can i do?23:10
matsamanI haven't used livepatch, but there's probably a -v or -verbose or some debugging info mode that will say more than 'experienced an internal error'23:11
Blade-Runneri have no idea how to run that23:11
matsamanwhat's the command you're using?23:11
Blade-Runnernone, livepatch has a gui on the desktop23:12
Blade-Runnerand livepatch is not a command23:13
matsamanpretty sure there is a command by that name, but if you're not using it that doesn't matter23:14
matsamantry running the GUI via a terminal23:14
matsamanps aux | grep -i livepatch, while it's running, will probably reveal the executable name23:14
Blade-Runnerok what command do i use?23:14
matsamandpkg -L package-livepatch-is-from | grep -i bin probably will also23:14
oerhekslivepatch is a snap.23:16
Blade-Runnerwell thats enough to confuse me23:16
oerheksi think yu just need to run updates properly, apt full-upgrade and reboot23:17
MarkB2Well, today is Christmas and, per the usual, I get handed a cute problem.  Namely: a guest has a DVD with a bunch of JPG's and AVI files.  Most of the AVIs are >large< and something seems to have gone wrong with the burn.23:19
Blade-Runnerno upgrades needed,  all 0's23:20
matsamanI mean really, you need to have your systems set up so you can reboot one at a time while others are online, redundantly23:20
matsamanbut livepatch can help with instant patches very occasionally23:20
matsamanMarkB2: what makes it seem like something went wrong?23:21
MarkB2while an 'ls -l' of the affected directories says files are there and they have big size, trying to read these AVI files produces a error message and a zero-length complaint (Input/output error).23:21
MarkB2Which isn't too useful.23:21
matsamanMarkB2: hmmm, well maybe start with a ddrescue of the disc23:21
matsamanthen you can take the drive out of the equation23:22
MarkB2matsaman: Thank you.. I did not know of "ddrescue".23:22
MarkB2And I think I've mis-directed myself.  Were you thinking of a 'dd' to copy all blocks from the DVD to HD ?23:23
matsamanMarkB2: https://dpaste.com/BWYJGH4UR.txt23:23
matsamanthere's more than one 'ddrescue' implementation, I think these commands are for GNU's own23:23
matsamanMarkB2: 'ddrescue'23:23
matsamanit'll copy despite i/o & read errors23:23
matsamanmight be the gddrescue package on Ubuntu23:24
matsamanMarkB2: I'd also be curious what 'mplayer dvd://' does23:24
MarkB2That I can easily check.  One moment.23:25
matsamanif mplayer can play it, you're golden, because mplayer can copy/dump anything it can play23:25
MarkB2Some of the damaged files can be played by mplayer.  Others causes mplayer to give up.23:25
matsamanokay so you can go ahead and grab the playable ones23:25
matsamanlsdvd will tell you their #'s, and mplayer dvd://numhere -dumpstream -dumpfile foo.vob, I think23:26
MarkB2mplayer gets slightly confused on the file.  It's not a DVD that is playable, for example, in a commercial DVD player.23:26
MarkB2The creator of this thing put together a tree of JPGs and AVIs then told some burner to burn.23:27
matsamanso it's just a data dvd?23:28
matsamanI think I'd start with ddrescue23:28
matsamanand then if some files are still bad23:28
matsamanyou can get into the dark magics of file recovery apps23:28
MarkB2And I will take that advice, D/L ddrescue, compile, and see how far I get.23:29
matsamanhttps://dpaste.com/BWYJGH4UR.txt you can use files instead of /dev/disk for the output23:29
matsamanI think it probably is the 'ddrescue' from the 'gddrescue' package23:29
kvndyI have an external LUKS encrypted drive which accidentally got disconnected. I was in here before and was told I need to "dismount its logical volumes, deavtivate them, close the LUKS, ensure its mappers are released for real, then open the LUKS as usual, activate the logical volumes, then mount their file systems". Does that sound about right? It's a lot for me to have to figure out and any help would be appreciated.23:30
matsamanlike I said there are at least two ddrescue implementations out there, though; believe the GNU one is the most used, and the other one typically is named 'dd_rescue' with underscore23:30
matsamankvndy: that is a lot of boring processes to figure out I agree, but I believe each of them is utterly non-destructive23:30
matsamanyou can do them wrong, I think, but I don't think you can accidentally lose any data doing any of that23:31
matsamanyou'd have to do something more, like obliterate something23:31
kvndymatsaman: That is reassuring23:31
matsamanyou have LVM's things and LUKS' things, and maybe they're confused with one another23:32
matsamanbut your data is there, encrypted, and LVM is managing where on top of it23:32
matsamanas long as you know your passphrase and haven't somehow deleted/overwritten one of those constructs, everything should, ultimately, be fine23:32
matsamanand once you get it figured out I hope you'll revisit backup plans =)23:33
matsamanI'm afraid I've never found a reason to use LVM so I won't be of much use23:33
kvndymatsaman: Data loss was never a concern. A reboot was always simpler but it's happened again so I'm going to go through the trouble and figure it out this time23:33
matsamanyeah be worth it23:33
matsamanthat would probably be the first thing I'd do for LVM or LUKS23:34
matsamanafter setting it up... to figure out how to completely disable and then re-enable it23:34
MarkB2Hmm... ddrescue may not be able to solve this problem.  I can create an ISO using sudo cat /dev/sr0 > output_file.iso and there are no read errors.23:36
MarkB2What I have seems to be an integrity issue with the DVD.23:36
matsamanyeah entirely possible23:39
matsamanit could also have been made by some kind of horrible write-protection system23:39
matsamanbut I think that's probably less likely, if it was just some random normo who authored it23:39
matsamanhorrible read-protection system, that is23:39
MarkB2I think it more likely a "normal but somewhat neophyte" user burnt the DVD.23:39
matsamanif they didn't use something that checked the integrity afterward, yeah23:40
matsamanDVD burning is horrifying23:40
MarkB2Most CD/DVD burners default to running a verify pass... but I have no idea what he used.23:40
matsamanthese days most do23:41
MarkB2Myself, I always run a verify pass.23:41
matsamanAVI is a pretty old format to have used for such a thing23:41
matsamannot to mention DVD is pretty old23:41
stavrosIs it normal to be getting 12 MB/s random reads on a Samsung Evo 850 SSD?23:41
matsamannot sure 'random' can be solidly accounted for as normal ever23:41
MarkB2ddrescue completed with no errors, the output file is the same length as the data area on the DVD .. and so what I have is a data integrity error on the DVD, not a case of bad DVD media.23:43
MarkB2So the burner fouled up.23:43
MarkB2The only thing I can think of to try now is to look for something like fsck for an ISO9660 ISO file.23:45
MarkB2I'm not sure such a thing exists.23:45
stavrosWhat could be affecting SSD performance?23:46
matsamanMarkB2: probably something does, or some kind of file carving/recovery util23:46
matsamanstavros: like besides bad hardware? ummm23:46
matsamanfirmware, device driver, FS stuffo I guess23:46
=== Hash is now known as chmod
MarkB2And I just discovered the DVD is not in ISO9660 format (according to isoinfo).23:54
