ubottudman777 Much easier to build up than to tear down:: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD00:52

ExcessiveAggroHi All.  I'm in a bit of a pickle but I feel like there has to be an easy out.  I have a default install of 20.04 and I accidentally deleted my first partition on the drive and now the system is non-bootable.  I'm on a live USB disk now and I can see all my data however I need to fix that first partition.  I assumed it was SWAP since it was only05:06
ExcessiveAggroAny ideas on how to determine what that old partition was... and how to get this up and running again?05:06
SpeirosSwap makes sense, but no guarantees. Can you flag the drive as bootable?05:07
SpeirosUsing Gparted or something?05:07

Bashing-omExcessiveAggro: 500M == EFI boot partition ?05:08
ExcessiveAggrolooks like the entire file system is here... just appears to be missing this 500M partition... Bashing it could be yes05:08
ExcessiveAggrois there a way to recreate it if its a 500M EFI partition?05:09
ExcessiveAggroBashing-om that may be it because the system talks about now boot partitions when it comes up.05:10
Bashing-omExcessiveAggro: If it is the EFI partition - I would think that it can be re-recreated - as I am not EFI litterate others advise here will be the better,05:11
ExcessiveAggrolet me do some google on this new info05:11
SpeirosYeah, not sure on that myself. I can choose EFI or not in the bios, but not sure about other things.05:12
Bashing-omSpeiros: Start with what is now for partitiioning - have a look at ' sudo fdisk -lu ' from your liveUSB.05:13

soft_concreteBlueEagle: Ubuntu Server for the server, Ubuntu on my laptop for client as well15:14

RadSurferfor one thing a leading 0 infront of integers in C means OCTAL value! but why only flag certain values in RED?15:17

mocalvaoI have a very weird situation with my network connection. Two (Kubuntu Linux) of my three machines (the other one is a MacBook Pro), which are directly connected to the modem/router of my ISP, are unable to connect many pages of the web, though other ones seem to work fine15:55
mocalvaoA sample of the sites I have problems with is: ufrj.br, claro,com.br, arxiv.org, kubuntu.org. I do not have problems in accessing youtube (any videos there), gmail, gmeet, for instance. The error is typically (in Chrome) DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN or ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE15:56
sharktamerso what's the actual right way to configure wifi headless on a raspberry pi?15:57

mocalvaoI have now tried a different login user and different live usb pendrives and the same issues persist. Furthermore, I have created hotspots from my mobile phones, which use a different ISP and one of the desktops, which came with wifi as well, presents the same issues...15:57
mocalvaoRight now, my MacBook Pro works fine, having no kind of this issue, but in the past few days, it did have... In fact, this morning, there was a popped-up message in it, reading: This computer's local hostanme "..." is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to ... Despite that, i have had no access problems to the web through it, connected to the very same modem/router16:00
mocalvaoPeople from #kubuntu suggested I should come here because of a larger user base, and so did I.16:01
RadSurferhow about that! those RED thingies were actually bad octal values in a .c file! Why isn't there a manual for gedit that explains these things. :)16:03
BlueEaglemocalvao: Having the same hostname on a network should typically not cause an issue with http traffic, but in general it is a bad idea. Is there any reason that you have several hosts with the same name on the network?16:13
BlueEaglemocalvao: Oh I did not read that it had since changed. I would reset the router too just to make sure that it is done. Then I would power down all but one computer and see if it works as expected. Then two and then three until the issue arises.16:14
BlueEaglemocalvao: If the issue exists with only one computer, power that down and try with another single computer powered. If the issue still persists then the issue appears to be not with the computers but the link.16:15

mocalvaoHi Iam back, the guy with connection problems to the internet17:41
mocalvaoBlueEagle: I have turned off all machines as well as the modem/router and then tried turning on, each one separately, and then all of them again. The connection problem persists: I am unable to access some network resources, while having no problems with others17:43
BlueEaglemocalvao: Ok, so you are able to open some websites, but not others, is that correct?17:43
BlueEaglemocalvao: And this issue also occurs when you try only the mac online?17:44
mocalvaoBlueEagle: Yes, I can access some sites (youtube, https://ubuntu.com), but not others (https://ufrj.gov.br, https://kubuntu.org)). This issue, right now, does not happen with the MacBook Pro, simultaneously connected to the same modem/router.17:49
BlueEaglemocalvao: Ok. And which error message are you receiving again?17:50
mocalvaoBlueEagle: that is, I am able to access all sites with the Mac...17:50
BlueEaglemocalvao: Do you get an error message in your web browser?17:53
mocalvaoBlueEagle: with Chrome, I get: This site can't be reached  https://ufrj.br is unreachable  ERR_ADDRESSS_UNREACHABLE, but also, before, DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN17:53
BlueEaglemocalvao: Ok, can you ping the address and get an IP address for the name?17:53
BlueEaglemocalvao: i.e. in a terminal run ping ufrj.br17:54
mocalvaoPING ufrj.br ( 56(84) bytes of data Then several From _gateway ( icmp_seq=3 Destination Net Unreachable17:55
mocalvaoAfter interrupting, with Ctrl-C, I get: 69 packets transmitted, 0 received, +56 errors, 100% packet loss, time 69600ms17:56
BlueEaglemocalvao: Ok, so the name server appears to find the correct IP. If you try (accepting the security exception) does it give a 404 page not found?17:56
mocalvaoThe very same site, from the Mac shows up perfectly17:56
BlueEaglemocalvao: I understand. We just need to figure out where the issue is.17:57
BlueEaglemocalvao: Also which browser(s) are you using on your kubuntu boxes?17:57
mocalvaoThis happens both for Firefox and Chrome17:57
mocalvaoWhen I tried the IP address above, the browser simply returned ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE17:58
BlueEaglemocalvao: That is really odd.17:58
mocalvaoBlueEagel: (it did not show up any security exception)17:59
BlueEaglemocalvao: Did you set up any proxy server when you installed Kubuntu?17:59
mocalvaoI guess not, because I would not even know how to do it. I can check if you tell me how to...18:00
BlueEaglemocalvao: There is a step where you are asked for a proxy server, the default is blank and that is correct for most users, so if you don't know that you did then you didn't. :)18:01
mocalvaoI went to KDE System Settings > Network > Settings > Proxy and "No Proxy" was checked18:01
BlueEaglemocalvao: Can you check the IP address and DNS server set up on one of the kubuntu boxes?18:02
BlueEaglemocalvao: Also try setting the DNS server to (google's name server) and see if that allows you to connect.18:02
mocalvaoIf that is worth, I have made a hotspot from my mobile phone, with a different ISP, connected to it from the most recent Kubuntu box and the same issue arises...18:03
mocalvaoBlueEagle: Someone had already suggested this to me: under System Settings > Network > Connections, I have Wired Ethernet IPv4 and IPv6 tabs both with Method: Automatic and Other DNS Servers as (IPv4) and ::ffff:
BlueEaglemocalvao: Try disabling IP6.18:06
BlueEaglemocalvao: But other than that I am at a loss for what may be causing this.18:07
=== StathisA_ is now known as StathisA
mocalvaoBlueEagle: how do I disable IPv6? Choosing Method: Ignored from System Settings > Network > Connections > IPv6 tab?18:08
mocalvaoBlueEagle: I am doing all this with the 3 machines connected to the modem/router; could this affect something?18:09
mocalvaoBlueEagle: does this look like some problem with my hardware (network card) or the ISP's modem/router or like a software, configuration problem?18:11
mocalvaoThe MacBook Pro itself, despite working without any apparent glitches right now, did issue those messages about changes to the hostname,FWIW...18:12
BlueEaglemocalvao: I assume that your router/modem has three or for LAN-slots (or even wifi) and that it provides a network address to your computers in a private range (, or
mocalvaoBlueEagle: it has four LAN (yellow) slots, all of which are used right now: 3 for the above mentioned computers and the last one for another personal mode-router18:16
BlueEaglemocalvao: And it gives out IPs in one of the ranges above?18:16
mocalvaoBlueEagle: I do not know how to check that "it provides a network address to your computers in a private range". I can check it in the command line, if you tell me how to18:17
BlueEaglemocalvao: What are your local IP addresses on your computers? If they start with 10. or 192.168 or 172.19 then it's a private range. Anything other than that then your individual devices are all getting public addresses which may cause issues.18:18
mocalvaoBlueEagle: I used sudo ifconfig and it gave me: for enp4s0 inet Is that it?18:19
BlueEaglemocalvao: Yeah, that sounds good. While you're at it do you see a DHCP server, and can you enter that address in your browser to get access to the interface of the router/modem? Typically that wound be
mocalvaofor inet6, there were several other codes..18:20
BlueEaglemocalvao: Oh, I thought I asked you to disable IP6.18:20
mocalvaoBlueEagle: When I try that URL it leads me to a page for TP-Link, which is not the ISP brand of the router-modem... I think it is the page for my other personal modem-router..18:23
mocalvaoBlueEagle: how do I disable IPv6? Through KDE System Settings?18:24
mocalvaoThe brand for the ISP modem-router is Arris (not TP-Link) but there are several infos in a sticker on it. One of them says the IP should be but this gives me a TP-LINK page, not the Arris one. Isn't his plain wrong?18:27
BlueEaglemocalvao: to /etc/sysctl.conf add the line: net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 118:28
BlueEaglemocalvao: You might need to restart networking or reboot for the changes to take effect.18:28
BlueEaglemocalvao: That depends on the firmware of the router what interface it has.18:29
BlueEaglemocalvao: Some googling should be able to provide you with the defautl credentials needed to access the admin interface. Not sure if it'll matter thoguh.18:29
mocalvaoHave just added the line disabling ipv6 on the sysctl.conf file (it was completely commented out)...18:33
mocalvaoHow do I start networking or should I rather reboot and come back again?18:34
BlueEaglemocalvao: A reboot would ensure that you're not using it.18:34
mocalvaoOk. I will reboot and report back. Thanks18:35
mocalvaoBlueEagle: Back again. It did not work... I notice, if that matters, that under KDE System Settings . Network > Connections, the IPv6 tab still has Method: Automatic and the Google DNS for the field Other DNS Servers, whereas the IPv4 tab has changed its Method to Link-Local and now its field DNS Servers is blank...18:43
BlueEaglemocalvao: Then I am at a loss for what can be causing this.18:44
mocalvaoBlueEagle: Also the command sudo ifconfig still shows up several inet6 lines, besides the single one for plain inet. Doesn't this mean inet6 is still somehow operational?18:45

_lars_Hi, where are bug-reports about the installer? I do own a 11th gen i5 laptop, using intel VMD. When trying to use dualboot with Windows, I get the problem "bitlocker is installed. Stop.". There is no bitlocker activated, and never had been (new Windows installation!). I tried RHEL 8.3 (current), installation works, booting works.20:12

ubottu_lars_: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please report it using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.20:14
BlueEagle_lars_: There is a section for "Filing a general bug against no particular package" section that may (or may not) apply20:15
_lars_BlueEagle: I do know that - but the problem is in the installer,20:15
_lars_(and I want to have a look if there is any bug filed already)20:15
BlueEagle_lars_: I believe that Launchpad is the place for ubiquity bugs too.20:16
_lars_ah. thanks for the package name.20:17

_lars_yeah - i didn't remember the package name - and asking g**gle for launchpad installer is rather senseless :)20:19
_lars_(ok, seems to be a new problem, so browsing the code)20:22
_lars_Thanks, BlueEagle20:22
BlueEagle_lars_: You're welcome. I was not able to find an existing report of Ubiquity erroneously detecting Bitlocker.20:23

_lars_ok, my fault. bitlocker was activated by windows installer, without asking, and without showing in windows control panel. cute. 20H2 Enterprise.20:49

dwhacksX220I just upgraded my ubuntu server to 20.04 and now on boot its stuck at "/dev/vda1: clean, ..file.size.numbers..."23:27
dwhacksX220any idea? I can ctrl-alt-f2 to get into the terminal, or ssh as usual, but its not ideal23:27
_[mandrix]_dwhacksX220, configure your grub/bootloader and point it to the correct hdd/ssd23:28
_[mandrix]_dwhacksX220, lick /dev/sda23:28
oerheksvda .. check your host filesystem?23:29
dwhacksX220well that would be wrong mandrix, /dev/vda1 is correct, its a virtual machine23:29
dwhacksX220I seem to have fixed it by removing the "quiet" and "splash" options23:30
