coryc257B0RN, my guess is to avoid potential issues if you run into a poorly written program that magically grants access to something without going through pam/polkit00:17
tomreynB0RN: please don't cross post.00:19
B0RNsorry, my bad.00:19
sarnoldB0RN: it used to be popular to have all users in a 'users' group or 'students' group or 'staff' group oor something like that00:21
sarnoldB0RN: but it was dangerously easy for people to make files and directories with vastly more group access than they intended00:21
B0RNwhat should command should I use? I will only create one user, and I will never add another user.00:22
LjLcoryc257, right now i'm on holiday so i can't even check, it was just a thought. but whatever it comes with, i'd have to use whatever coreelec ships with, i don't have a very wide choice of what Kodi distros i can install on it00:24
coryc257I'd just add the user and add it too groups as you find something is broken if you: useradd username -G wheel00:24
coryc257you will have a user with a default group of username and an additional group of wheel00:25
coryc257with wheel assuming your system is set up to sudo based upon wheel you can sudo add groups as you need them00:25
tomreynURUGU4Y: welcome to ubuntu support00:26
B0RNcoryc257, so this is useless, storage,power,network,video,audio,lp?00:27
coryc257B0RN, I'm not sure if you need them or not. that depends on your distro and how they have stuff set up00:28

CanisElSavioreThe Freenode nonsense came as a surprise01:09
sarnoldheh, yeah01:09
CanisElSavioreI just wanted to post an answer it took me way too long to find about dual booting, and linux not being able to use your NIC01:10
CanisElSavioreI didn't realize it was dual boot specific.01:11
CanisElSavioreyou have to disable fast boot in windows to make a long story short01:12
sarnoldwindows fast boot is pretty frustrating01:12
CanisElSavioreI kept wondering how the linux guys broke it.  I felt kind of dumb after I read it.01:14
sarnoldheh I'm surprised you were even able to get into linux, I thuoght the fastboot thing meant the startup was pretty much locked to windows01:16
CanisElSavioreSome folks on the linux side made it easier to deal with uefi, or whatever it is called.  The only issues I have been having was the inability of linux to use the NIC, and sometimes frequent Bluetooth disconnects.01:19
pi0on ubuntu 20.04, i have a little working to launch a program from cli, i need to add something to my .bashrc an export, if i want to launch the application from the menu01:21
pi0that does not work01:21
pi0is there a place to set a global export so i can launch my app directly from the menu01:21
oerheksmake a proper starter. and add the program to yout %path%01:24
oerheks.bashrc is the place to be, for user level01:25
pi0ah ok01:29
CanisElSavioreNow if I can just figure out why my HDD is constantly being accessed on linux.  The cure for it on windows didn't work.  On windows it was FireFox and it's backups being rerouted to my Drive.  Found the fix.  The fix didn't work on linux01:35
sarnoldCanisElSaviore: you might have luck with the biotop-bpfcc tool from the bpfcc-tools package01:39
sarnoldCanisElSaviore: you can see an example of it on https://github.com/iovisor/bcc/blob/master/tools/biotop_example.txt01:39
sarnoldCanisElSaviore: I'm pretty sure you have to disable secureboot to use it though :(01:39
sarnoldthere might be other tools that don't require disabling secureboot01:39
tomreynCanisElSaviore: it's probably you irc client, configured to log to disk? other than "biotop", there's also the classic user space based "iotop", which should not depend on disabling secureboot. the results will probablly not be as exact as biotop's, but for answering the "what keeps waking my disk" question, it shoul dbe good enough.01:44
sarnoldoh nice. I knew there was something else :)01:45
tomreynand i didn't know about biotop, thanks for that!01:48
CanisElSaviore@tomreyn, It isn't my primary disk thogh.  That is an SSD.  It's one of my Hdd's.  I have been having this issue for years.  It might just be some idiosyncratic factory thing though. I have 2 that are suppose to be idential, but only one spins, and sounds as if it's being accessed constantly, while the other acts like it is supposed to.01:50
tomreynmaybe give them both a smartctl run01:51
XV8Are PPAs something the developer hosts or is it something that is ubuntu/canonical specific?01:51
tomreyn!smart | CanisElSaviore01:51
ubottuCanisElSaviore: smart is Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, a monitoring system for hard drives. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Smartmontools01:51
CanisElSavioreUsing some FF workarounds I got it to stop spinning constantly.  But I can't see what is accessing the disk in linux.01:51
CanisElSavioreIt's telling me that nothing is, though I can hear it.01:51
sarnoldXV8: they're almost certainly canonical/ubuntu -- while there *are* other people running launchpad, it's very rare01:51
CanisElSavioreI'm still trying to sort my way through what biotop actually is.  There are a lot of words for a drunk guy that digs holes to absorb.01:53
XV8sarnold, There's a PPA I'm trying to add, but I'm getting GPG timeouts. Wondering if that's one of those rare cases.01:53
CanisElSavioreok.  I remembered how to read from the beginning.01:55
XV8Oh, now it wants to work that I passed the debug flag... probably a hiccup01:55

iorianick7465, what's the nvidia version actually in  use ?16:15
nick7465I usually use apt via terminal. I think I have one snap package installed but can't remember.16:16
nick7465According to the software updater app, it says the 460 is in use.16:16
iorianick7465, nvidia-smi what it says ?16:17
varaindemianrunning nested virtualization (ubuntu host -> ubuntu guest -> another ubuntu guest). Any idea why everthing is so slow? Also, Virtualbox16:18
iorianick7465, sudo apt nvidia-driver-440  && sudo apt autopurge16:19
iorianick7465, sudo apt purge nvidia-driver-440  && sudo apt autopurge16:19
nick7465Done. Should I also do the same for 450, Ioria?16:21
Walexnick7465: your latest paste shows that various processes are using the NVIDIA libraries...16:21
=== waxfire238 is now known as waxfire
Walexnick7465: 'nvidia-smi' seems to show that your installation is mostly right.16:22
nick7465Walex, that makes sense. I run dual monitors though my secondary monitor's max resolution is 1024x768 according to the software/OS but the monitor's actual capability is far greater (1080 monitor)16:22
iorianick7465, yes16:22
nick7465Oh hm, it says 450 is not installed so it wasn't removed. Logical, but I thought we saw it was. Interesting.16:23
nick7465Maybe it was purged when I did the 44016:23
iorianick7465, again dpkg -l | grep nvidia please16:24
Walexnick7465: you also have CUDA installed and then it is possible to do some quick speed tests.16:24
iorianick7465, if you have cuda that's probably the culprit16:25
nick7465I don't know if I have cuda or not, why would that be problematic? Don't nvidia GPUs have cuda cores regardless?16:25
Walexioria: CUDA does not make OpenGL become slower.16:25
jpmhI'm managing to get very confused.  Does fail2ban block ipv6 miscreants as well as i?v4?16:26
ioriaWalex, but can mess up, with the package manager16:26
nick7465dpkg -l | grep nvidia looks a lot cleaner now, but nvidia-smi no longer works16:26
Walexalso a little known secret: the most reliable NVIDIA drivers are those in the CUDA repository, because they have to be :-)16:26
nick7465Should I purge 460 and install 470?16:26
iorianick7465,  no it's wrong i don't see 46016:27
nick7465Uh oh16:27
nick7465In that paste it mentions 460?16:27
nick7465Ah okay in software-updater it shows I'm using the nouveau driver now16:27
iorianick7465,  the pkg is calld nvidia-driver-46016:28
Walexnick7465: not necessariy, you have not rebooted.16:28
nick7465oh I see there's still two 440s listed in that last paste16:28
iorianick7465,  dpkg -l | grep -i cuda16:28
Walexnick7465: existing processes will continue to use the NVIDIA libraries.16:28
nick7465oh my this is confusing! haha. Should I reboot?16:28
iorianick7465,  dpkg -l | grep -i cuda16:28
Walexnick7465: not yet reboot16:29
nick7465That command returns nothing16:29
nick7465no error, just nothing16:29
amcsiI seemed to have broken my ubuntu install by starting my dual-booted windows and shutting down before it started to boot. While trying to set up grub again on my ubuntu (which is on a different SSD than my windows), I seemed to have trouble setting up GRUB+EFI for my ubuntu. Based on searching around on the internet, I think the source of the problem may be that there's no EFI partition on my ubuntu SSD. When listing the partitions, I saw16:29
amcsithat there were only the / partition, the /home partition, and swap. Assuming nothing outright removed any other partition, and that there needs to be an efi partition to install an efi bootloader, then might the only explanation be that my EFI partition was on my Windows drive all along? Because I do see an EFI System partition there. Also I believe I installed Windows first16:29
iorianick7465,  sudo apt purge inux-modules-nvidia-440-5.4.0-42-generic inux-modules-nvidia-440-5.4.0-47-generic16:30
Walexamcsi: there must be only one EFI partition.16:30
iorianick7465,  sudo apt purge inux-modules-nvidia-440-5.4.0-42-generic inux-modules-nvidia-440-5.4.0-47-generic16:30
iorianick7465,  sorry,   sudo apt purge linux-modules-nvidia-440-5.4.0-42-generic linux-modules-nvidia-440-5.4.0-47-generic16:31
Walexamcsi: unless you do really weird things like switching the "primary" drive in the BIOS before booting.16:31
nick7465hehe figured that one, no problem! I ran it with the missing l's and it removed both16:31
amcsiWalex, oh, I mounted /sdb2 (the windows drive's EFI partition), and in there I see an EFI/ubuntu16:31
iorianick7465,  sudo apt purge libnvidia-compute-46016:31
Walexamcsi: amcsi: the way Ubuntu boots with EFI is slightly weird, so don't look into that.16:32
amcsiso that means the EFI partition was on the drive meant for windows all along most likely, right?16:32
nick7465ioria done!16:32
iorianick7465,  sudo apt autopurge16:32
nick7465ran, nothing changed16:32
iorianick7465, uname -r  (you can paste here)16:33
Walexamcsi: how much do you know about system administration? Can you boot a standalone "liveCD"/"liveUSB" Linux without further details?16:33
iorianick7465, sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade16:33
amcsiWalex, yes16:33
nick7465ran, no changes (I ran this about an hour ago)16:34
amcsiWalex, so I would like to appreciate a little help in the following:16:34
Walexamcsi: do you know how to then 'chroot' to your '/' partition and run commands in it?16:34
iorianick7465, dpkg -l | grep nvidia16:34
=== diskin_ is now known as diskin
amcsiWalex, yeah, mostly16:34
nick7465didn't return anything ioria16:34
amcsibut wait a second please16:34
iorianick7465, run this 'apt -s install nvidia-driver-470 --no-install-recommends'16:35
Walexamcsi: ok, give us the further details.16:35
nick7465Ran very quickly, seemed successful?16:35
ioriacan we see ?16:35
amcsiso initially I tried to run grubinstall --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda, were /mnt is where my ubuntu root is mounted to, and /dev/sda being the device obviously. But I got: warning this GPT partition label contains no BIOS Boot partition yada yada16:36
nick7465Oh "this is only a simulation" haha! no wonder it ran quick. Yes let me paste ioria16:36
amcsibut now I realized that the EFI partition was on the other device16:36
amcsiin /dev/sdb216:36
nick7465ioria https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/f6q39Mybs8/16:36
amcsinow I mounted /dev/sdb2 to /mnteffi16:36
amcsiI mean /mntefi16:36
iorianick7465, now this :  'apt -s install nvidia-driver-470'16:37
amcsiWalex, so might you know how I would need to continue from here to finish the grub reinstall?16:37
amcsiI'll need to somehow let the grub installer know about where my efi is16:37
nick7465ioria https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/cgvrNNrwsZ/16:38
Walexamcsi: that is "all wrong" unfortunately.16:38
iorianick7465, looks ok now16:38
Walexamcsi: your EFI partition must be on the prima boot device.16:38
nick7465I agree, Ioria. Should I run one of those two simulated commands for real now?16:39
Walexamcsi: the EFI is actually a MS.DOS like operating system16:39
iorianick7465, try to install it :  sudo apt install nvidia-driver-470'16:39
Walexamcsi: that gets booted by the BIOS built into the motherboard.16:39
iorianick7465, try to install it :  sudo apt install nvidia-driver-47016:39
amcsiWalex, it couldn't be all wrong, because this is how it's been working...16:39
Walexamcsi: and its "root" partition must be on the primary boot device.16:39
Walexamcsi: then perhaps you have a BIOS that can boot the EFI OS from a secondary boot device, but that is unlikely.16:40
amcsiI installed Windows first on the windows drive which created an EFI partition there. Then I installed ubuntu on the other drive, and it likely reused the same EFI partition as windows, no?16:40
amcsion the other device16:40
nick7465It would then install Grub wouldn't it?16:40
Walexamcsi: what is then more likely is that the BIOS and Linux list devices on a different order16:41
Walexamcsi: so 'sdb' is actually at the BIOS level the primary device (0x80 in MS-DOS terms).16:41
nick7465Ioria, it seems to have worked fine! Installed about 788mb. No errors. Do I need to change any configuration or settings or whatnot to use it? Or reboot etc?16:41
Walexamcsi: in that case it is a bit of a mess to get all the details right.16:42
Walexamcsi: does MS-Windows boot right?16:42
iorianick7465, you know... reboot (if you got a blank screen you need to boot with nomodeset)... i suggest to make grub show at startup16:42
amcsiWalex, yes, windows does boot. And btw remember, I said that on the windows drive's efi partition I saw ubuntu16:42
Walexamcsi: again things are a bit strange there.16:43
Walexamcsi: does GRUB2 start at all?16:43
=== onelegend is now known as legend
Walexamcsi: or rather:16:43
amcsiWalex, no. If I start the Linux partition, I don'T even get there...16:43
amcsiWalex, I get this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dormqhnjkmj547a/2021-08-11%2016.43.55.jpg?dl=016:44
Walexamcsi: when MS-Windows boots, does it show first the GRUB menu or just the MS-Windows boot menu?16:44
iorianick7465, to make grub show you can use this config in /etc/defgault/grub : https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/FvFkXhf3Qz/    then run sudo update-grub16:44
nick7465ioria, grub shows at startup since I dual boot ubuntu + windows. Do I need to do anything else?16:44
iorianope, good16:44
nick7465Okay perfect16:45
amcsiWalex, if I choose the windows partition as the boot device, then it just boots straight to windows16:45
Walexamcsi: in what kind of menu do you choose MS-Windows?16:45
amcsiif I choose the ubuntu partition, then I get that failure in the dropbox link, and no grub16:45
nick7465I hope to return soon with good news! I think I might need to relog here as different nick since I'm not registered but we'll see. I'll ping you either way Ioria16:45
ioriaok gl16:45
amcsiWalex, I simply choose the boot device manually in my BIOS to get windows to run16:45
nick7465Thank you so so much for your help Ioria and Walex. I will return shortly!16:45
=== legend is now known as onelegend
Walexamcsi: chnaging the boot device often creates a lot of problems unless you really know the details how how BIOS, EFI, GRUB2 work.16:46
Walexamcsi: the crucial details from the Ubuntu point of view is that when 'grub-install' runs '/boot' and '/boot/efi' must have the right filestems/partitions mounted.16:47
amcsiWalex, this is just the simple Boot Order stuff. Like how if your live usb does not run, you'd tell your bios to prioritize your usb devicwe16:48
Walexamcsi: if you know all the details, it can be made to work, but obviously it does not work.16:48
amcsiWalex, one quick question: does grub-install check to see if the circumstances are valid before setting up grub? so if I mounted the wrong things to the wrong folders, will it warn me?16:49
Walexamcsi: no.16:49
Walexioria: in the case of "nick7465" cleaning up his packages is a good thing, but first I would have checked *why* it was slow... It could something simple like i386/amd64 differences.16:51
ioriaWalex, yeah16:51
Walexioria: the Steam installer does not check that all i386 dependencies needed by Steam games are installed, and many i386 Steam games are still i386, so it could have been that.16:52
amcsiWalex, so for starters are you saying I have to create a new partition acting as EFI on the same drive as my ubuntu?16:52
Walexioria: or as you probably know quite a few other things.16:52
ioriaWalex,  what worried me was the apt errors16:52
Walexamcsi: I would really avoid doing that...16:52
Walexioria: oh yes, I can understand that.16:52
amcsiWalex, why? besides, I'm planning on installing a new physical drive in place of the windows drive, so I think it would be beneficial to have the ubuntu efi partition on the same device as my ubuntu16:53
WalexBTW as I was mentioning the most reliable NVIDIA drivers are those in the CUDA repo: http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu2004/x86_6416:54
nick4765ioria I can't even remember if this is the same nick I used before, but I'm back. So far it doesn't seem any different from before. My second monitor is still stuck on a low resolution, and attempting to play the game still presents 20-30 fps. Another game is asking "launch" or "launch using OpenGL" I am guessing choose the OpenGL?16:54
Walexamcsi: because unless you are completely sure that you know all the details of BIOS, EFI, GRUB2 configuration and booting, having multiple EFI partitions creates problems and ambiguities.16:55
iorianick7465, again nvidia-smi please16:55
TJ-any way to persuade {user,group}add that an ephemeral user/group doesn't exist so it/they can be added to /etc/{passwd,group} ? I've tried 'tricking' with --prefix=/ but they still uses NSS and therefore 'find' the ephemeral user/group16:55
amcsiWalex, going on a little tangent, if I wanted to replace my windows drive (that has the efi partition), should I be prepared to have to reinstall ubuntu, cause it's better to not mess around with efis?16:56
=== genii-core is now known as genii
iorianick7465, now 470 is correctly in use and is the latest16:57
Walexamcsi: you never need to reinstall Ubuntu because it can always be fixed from a liveCD/liveUSB.16:57
amcsiWalex, ok... could I do the same right now with my current situation?16:57
Walexamcsi: the details may be a bit complex, but it is not like MS-Windows yet where the details are unknowable.16:57
amcsiI don't know if I mentioned, but the live usb is already running as we speak16:58
noarb-I tried to upgrade to hirsuite and now I've got a broken system. It just said "failed; please contact your system administrator" during the upgrade. I restarted, and I can operate on the machine, but all the apt packages seem to be messed up. I tried sudo apt --fix-broken install and got this: https://bpa.st/3BLA16:58
nick4765ioria - sweet!! That's good news. I'm not sure what my problems are then16:58
Walexamcsi: the best and simplest thing is; a single EFI partition on the primary boot drive, which boots the MS-Windows bootloader or the GRUB2 bootloader.16:58
iorianick7465, maybe Walex has some suggestions16:58
nick4765ioria, thank you so much for your help so far you've been amazing16:59
amcsiWalex, fun fact, the ubuntu drive has been the primary drive16:59
nick4765in the future if I wanted to update the driver, what would be the best way Ioria?16:59
amcsiso I don't even understand how that works when the EFI partition is on the windows drive16:59
Walexamcsi: please don't be offended when I say that I don't trust you to *know* which drive is the primary boot drive unless you know why that is aclled the '0x80' drive.17:00
noarb-I've tried these commands: https://askubuntu.com/a/34679517:01
Walexamcsi: some BIOSes will boot EFI and mount the first EFI partition they find on any drive, some don't17:01
amcsiWalex, I'm absolutely not offended, you are super kind17:01
Walexnick4765: which game is it?17:01
amcsiWalex, so you're saying the primary boot drive has nothing to do with the boot device order in my BIOS?17:02
nick4765Walex the one I was testing in comparison was Tropico 6, but I just installed Valheim to test that one. It's asking to launch or launch with OpenGL not sure which to do. Hate to try one and then not have that option return in the future17:02
Walexamcsi: in theory the BIOS assigns MS-DOS drive number 0x80 to the first drive listed in the boot device order.17:02
Walexnick4765: it has to be OpenGL.17:03
amcsiWalex, even if it's the live cd, right?17:03
nick4765Okay awesome, let me try Valheim and see. Though I am still having the issues with my second monitor reso being low17:03
Walexnick4765: but there is a complication: some games run under MS-Windows emulation ("proton")17:03
Walexnick4765: try Team Fortess 2 as a baseline, it is free.17:03
nick4765Yeah, I enabled Proton. should I not have?17:04
nick4765Okay I will try TF217:04
Walexnick4765: Proton usually works, but it can add a layer of extra complexity.17:04
Walexnick4765: so to solve problems it is best layer by layer.17:04
Walexnick4765: "ioria" has got you to clean up the package install layer, now we need to check the other layers.17:05
Walexnick4765: while you wat for the download to finish, please install 'pastebinit'17:05
Walexnick4765: and then 'pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log' and 'nvidia-smi | pastebinit' and 'xdpyinfo | pastebinit' and 'xrandr | pastebinit'17:06
nick4765Awesome! I just tried Valheim using OpenGL and I get significantly better performance in that game, 60-80 fps. This is still down from 144 over in Windows but way better than the 20-30 seen in Tropico. I am downloading tf2 now and will do the pastebin things17:07
Walexamcsi: when you boot a liveCD or liveUSB the primary driver gets set to the CD/USB, but also the liveCD(liveUSB things contains code that scans most of the partitions on the system to figure out how to continue booting.17:08
Walexamcsi: again, unless you really know what you are doing, never switching boot drive and using a single EFI partition is a lot easier.17:08
amcsiWalex, alright... so how do you suggest that I proceed?17:09
nick4765Walex https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/DRsmMnD7g3/ https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/VJxYh9QbF5/ https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/8k9bXyZX24/ https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/fXkqTW6jh7/17:10
amcsiyou saw my dropbox image, right? I'm wondering if my EFI is screwed up and if it could simply be fixed somehow17:10
Walexamcsi: the simplest configuration is this: the primary boot drive is fixed, and it is the MS-Windows drive with the only EFI partition in the system. Given that, ubuntu can be anywhere, because it is a lot less fussy then MS-Windows as to booting locations.17:11
Walexamcsi: the boot then proceeds like this: the BIOS boots EFI, EFI mounts th EFI partition, scans it and finds the MS-Windows bootloader and the GRUB2 bootloader, and then gives you a menu. When you select GRUB2 it mounts '/boot' as its root partition and there it goes.17:12
Walexamcsi: it is very difficult to screw up EFI itself. the kernel is in the BIOS "RO" storage, and the EFI root partition only contains the EFI shell or a set of bootloaders.17:13
Walexnick4765: having a look...17:14
Walexnick4765: BTW the critical bit to look for is 'glx'17:14
nick4765walex, I just queued into a TF2 game and the performance was perfect. 250-280 fps and smooth as butter.17:15
nick4765I know it's an old game, but still.17:15
nick4765I think that's a good sign17:15
Walexnick4765: that means that your install has full OpenGL acceleration. To be really sure check with 'top' while the game is running that the CPU time is low.17:16
WalexBut 250-280 FPS at full 2K resolution is probably unattainable with software OpenGL alone.17:17
Walexso far the pastes show everything is dine, e.g.  NV-GLX is paert of of the X11 extensions available, etc.17:19
amcsiby the way I have run boot-repair: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/S5dGyHj69B/17:19
amcsiI don't have high hopes, but I'll restart and see if it fixed it17:20
amcsiit fixed it!17:21
Walexamcsi: the boot repair log is a bit weird but it seems good.17:21
amcsiI'm so happy right now. Thanks for all the help!17:21
Walexamcsi: note that it mounted '/dev/sdb2' as '/mnt/boot/efi'.17:21
nick4765Walex, running top while playing shows roughly 200-230% cpu usage (how is that even possible?) while it is not in focus, it's around 20-30%17:21
amcsiWalex, that's what I said was on the windows drive17:22
Walexamcsi: you need to make sure that '/dev/sdb2' is mounted as '/boot/efi' in '/etc/fstab'17:22
Walexnick4765: each CPU counts as 100% in "Irix" mode of 'top'.17:23
nick4765Oh you said Time not % usage - the time is 3:47 to 3:48 while not in focus and while playing it goes up to 4:2517:23
nick4765Ah gotcha, good to know!17:23
Walexnick4765: % is good17:23
Walexnick4765: it is a bit high for TF2 on a latest system like that.17:23
nick4765Meanwhile the "time" on the steam process is 12:06 ! weird17:24
TheForkRecently encountered an issue: "fork: retry: Resource temporarily unavailable" ends up erroring out a ton of my processes.  Looked at the fix, they mentioned it could be a memory, ulimit or kernel limitation.  So I end up checking memory (53% usage only), upping ulimit for processes to their maximum, upping files opened to their maximum, putting17:24
TheForkpid limit to the highest and doing the same within the kernel.  Memory usage is probably not an issue since I got about 50 gb left.  So after doing all that, can't think of what else would cause the problem.  It's an AWS instance so might have to do with virtualization issue.  So far have 2 computers with this issue.  Wondering if someone else has17:24

nick4765Yeah it's running at that. What <should> the % and time be? (Also, what's CPU time? As in the timing like in RAM?)17:28
Walexnick4765: there is something rather weird in your configuration: the NVIDIA driver only reports 8 DisplayPort outputs, but 'xrandr' shows a los res display as 'HDMI-0'17:28
sakurahello, I have a script to compress, encrypt and upload my files to google drive, I want to run this script as a cronjob weekly, for that, I need to set the --passphrase flag to gpg so I can encrypty my files without my interaction, reading gpg's manual, they explicitly say that the --passphrase flag is unsecure, since the value can be logged and generally unsafe on a multi-user, the same for the17:29
sakura--passphrase-file, which reads from a file. My question is, how can I safely provide my password to gpg, without user interaction, on a multi-user system?17:29
Walexnick4765: since 'xrandr' report 6 DisplayPort and 1 HDMI, perhaps your system converts one DP port to HDMI.17:29
amcsiWalex, /dev/sdb2 has EFI/ubuntu and EFI/boot as well. Still /dev/sdb2 should be mounted as /boot/efi as-is?17:30
nick4765That is weird, I agree. I also definitely don't have 8 physical ports! judging from a quick glance, it shows 3 DP ports, 1 usb-c port, and 1 HDMI port Walex. My secondary display is hooked via HDMI17:30
Walexnick4765: nick4765: those are the chipset ports, which may or may not be connected to external sockets.17:30
nick4765Ahhh, gotcha.17:30
Walexamcsi: yes, as said. Don't worry about the subdirectories.17:31
nick4765The secondary display is in HDMI, and the monitor physically can go up to 1080 native but that isn't even an option in settings. The highest I can go is 1024 x 768 which is what it's at.17:31
Walexamcsi: I have written some of the details: http://www.sabi.co.uk/blog/20-two.html?200810#20081017:32
Walexnick4765: for the secondary try to connect with DP if you can, the reports by the NVIDIA driver are a bit weird.17:32
nick4765Walex The monitor itself doesn't have a DP port, sadly17:33

Walexnick4765: one of the usual tests is the 'atalantis' demo: 'apt install xscreensaver-gl-extra'17:34
TheForkusually those tools have options, but just buried in the documentation.  You can also probably use open-ssh aes encryption and store the key in a vault.  Good example being something like AWS Secret Manager service.  That kind of limits you to how safe the service login is.17:34
Apachezhow do I troubleshoot why /usr/bin/gnome-shell takes so much cpu?17:37
Walexnick4765: nick4765: then run and resize the window to take most of the screen: /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atlantis -fps -count 5017:37
TheForksakura, another option that I didn't really consider, but AWS/GCP/Azure should have blob storage with an encryption option where you store the keys within the cloud service itself.  It's maybe like .02 per gb plus nominal fee for transfers + key usage.17:39
Walexnick4765: on a really weak GPU on my laptop I get 37FPS and 6% load. The important thing is that the load should not exceed single digits.17:40
nick4765So first run apt install xscreensaver-gl-extra to install it, then /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atlantis -fps -count 50  to run?17:40
Walexnick4765: yes17:41
nick4765Walex I am seeing 38.x fps and load ranging from 3.4 to 4%17:42
nick4765Weird that it can only do that low of FPS17:43
Walexnick4765: it is good, I wonder why the FPS is low here too.17:43
sakuraTheFork thanks for the answers, I just didnt want to expose my passphrase on the terminal, which can be logged by the admin, just thought a little more about it and decided to create a new passwordless key just to encrypt these files, but I'm open for better ideas.17:44
TheForkI mean that's probably a pretty good option overall17:44
Walexnick4765: I just started Steram and it looks like Valheim is native Linux17:45
nick4765Walex so in theory I could launch it without OpenGL? Or I could launch it without proton? I think I have proton set to only be used if it NEEDS to be used, so I would think in the case of Valheim it wouldn't use proton?17:46
Walexnick4765: the only libraries that are native Linux are Vulkan and OpenGL17:46
nick4765Ahh, gotcha17:46
Walexnick4765: using Proton "usually" works.17:46
Walexnick4765: you may not have Vulkan installed, so it is better to default to OpenGL.17:47
nick4765Fair enough17:48
nick4765Can you think of why my display isn't showing 1080 capability?17:48
nick4765the secondary, I mean17:48
Walexnick4765: so far all tests succeed as to speed.17:48
TheForkSo long as server is well patched etc.  If it's like major corporation, then you'd typically do key vaults and key checkouts, but think for most use cases, especially personal use, it's probably overkill.  Yeah, definitely don't put the password plain text on a cronjob.  That's definitely not koshure.  All you need is someone to read off the file17:48
TheForkor check history and boom.  It's all compromised.17:48
nick4765Yeah and TF2 and Valehim both work really well and smooth so I'm not AS concerned now. I think it's mostly straightened out. I think Tropico6 just has issues period despite supposedly being native linux.17:49
Walexnick4765: for the external display I can think of several reasons, one of them is that it is the wrong cable.17:50
nick4765Walex Even if it works fine on Windows?17:50
Walexnick4765: in the Xorg server log file the only mention of HDMI is for input devices, so it is weird indeed.17:51
Walexnick4765: have you tried using the NVIDIA control panel app?17:51
Walexnick4765: 'nvidia-xconfig'17:52
nick4765Walex the only one I have is the x server settings, is this correct?17:52
nick4765I can screenshot you what I see, sec17:53

nick4765Now when I click "auto" to change reso on the second display I see resolutions up to 1600x900 which is higher than before. Still not up to native though.17:54
nick4765Walex: Interesting when I navigate to the two screens under the "GPU 0 -" tab, there's one for HDMI-0 and DP-2; DP-2 shows the "signal" to be DisplayPort while "HDMI-0" shows the signal to be "TMDS"17:56
Walexnick4765: try putting th second monitor *under* the main monitor, not to thew right.17:56
Walexnick4765: that's weird, usually TMDS is the builtin one17:56
Walexahhh no, LVDS.17:57
nick4765Putting the secondary underneath my main works fine, stays the same reso though17:58
Walexnick4765: have you tried manually selecting a higher res for the secondary?17:59
nick4765Although it does make me a bit dizzy17:59
nick4765Yes, the option doesn't even exist for higher. And there's no manual option to enter in my own values18:00
Walexnick4765: some drivers have a 4096 pixel height and width limitation for the virtual display18:00
Walexnick4765: it could be a bad cable but it would be strange.18:00
nick4765I changed it to 1600x900 and it is working fine at that resolution18:01
nick4765Yeah, I'm not ruling out the cable thing for sure. Just because it works on Windows doesn't mean it's NOT bad persay.18:01
Walexnick4765: it is possible to manually add a 1920x1080 mode and force that, but it is not simple.18:02
TJ-nick4765: what does this report? "pastebinit <( hexdump -C /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-0/edid )"18:02
WalexI'd like to disappear for while, I will be back in around 1 hour18:02
nick4765Oh under advanced, I could potentially edit the "viewportin" and "viewportout" values18:02
nick4765No problem! Have a great one, I should probably go do stuff myself. I really appreciate all of your help Walex, seriously. Thank you.18:03
nick4765TJ-: says I'm trying to send an empty document, so I'm guessing nothing in that.18:03
TJ-nick4765: great, that confirms there is no EDID obtained from the display, which is a problem18:04
nick4765That is good news!18:04
TJ-nick4765: your Xorg log file suggested that but this confirms it; so what happens is Xorg and the GPU driver offer a set of 'standard' resolutions18:04
TJ-nick4765: it points to the source of your problem - no EDID18:05
nick4765Which I think is some type of marking that let's the driver interpret what monitor is present? So it has no idea what the monitor is, so it can't suggest a good reso?18:05
TJ-nick4765: try it on DP-2 I expect that'll have data: "hexdump -C /sys/class/drm/card0-DP-2/edid"18:05
nick4765it says no such file or directory18:06
TJ-EDID is a packet of info sent from the display to the GPU describing make, model, and modes it can support18:06
nick4765Ahhh, gotcha.18:06
dob1firefox on ubuntu live cannot reproduce twitch streams. It's my problem related to my test or a known one?18:06
TJ-nick4765: check what outputs are listed, but DP-2 was shown in the xrandr output. "ls -l /sys/class/drm/18:07
nick4765Can I copy that info here or does that need to be pastebinned?18:08
nick4765not sure what rule of thumb is for length18:09
nick4765it just shows "card0" and "renderD128"18:09
nick4765as the two lines18:09
nick4765(is that a good wow or a bad wow?)18:12
TJ-an unexpected 'wow'18:13
nick4765Fair enough. Haha!18:13
nick4765Above these two lines it says "Total 0"18:13
nick4765What does this information mean?18:13
TJ-that's fine. ... usually the kernel driver will create an entry there for each output of each card. I haven't touched nvidia in a long time so it may do something different. Let's first check if it lists the outputs only under the card node. "pastebinit <( ls -l /sys/class/drm/card0/) "18:14
nick4765Ironically enough I was AMD for a long time with GPU until the 5xxx series and just gave up because of shitty drivers. Went Nvidia for the first time since the Riva TNT2 Pro I had back in '99 with this 2080 Super and it's been stellar on Windows. Then I decide I really want to move to Linux as my main because of Windows repeated blatant privacy18:18
nick4765violations and I'm back full circle with "oh, AMD works way better on Linux because their drivers are open source"18:18
nick4765Makes me chuckle18:18
nick4765If it matters, Windows also doesn't see the EDID of my secondary monitor. It just shows as "generic pnp"18:22
TJ-There's something screwey about the GPU I feel18:23
TJ-nick4765: long shot but ... is it possible it's not in the 'correct' slot of the motherboard? sometimes the slot can make a difference for some weird reason only known to the motherboard firmware18:24
TJ-nick4765: I have a headless server that needed a GPU in during install and so I got a really low-spec PCIe fanless adapter, nothing special, but the firmware setup complained about the slot I put it in and I had to move it :)18:25
nick4765Interesting! I hadn't considered this. I could look up the mobo manual and see which x16 slot is preferred. I did actually know that from my own headless server I run! but hadn't considered it for this... haha18:25
nick4765Could we just force a custom reso and see what happens? I am looking up the mobo info now18:26
amcsiWalex, thanks!18:27
nick4765I want to add a GPU to my server as well but can't find a decent quadro that's low-profile. My server is a 4u but the rear is split, half backplane with drives half mobo/etc18:27
nick4765So in the way only Asus can, the manual is largely unhelpful but it does identify the slots as PCIE 3.0/2.0 x16_1 slot and PCIE 3.0/2.0 x16_2 slot; currently my GPU is installed in the 1 slot18:29
Walexnick4765: quadros are terrible value.18:32
Apachezr 993.938 boot -H -uD18:32

nick4765Walex I agree but I think they're the best at transcoding18:32
nick4765I will be back in a little bit! thanks again everyone18:33

cornfeedhobohello. does anyone know if there is a place to search for repos with newer/updated packages?18:48
cornfeedhoboe.g. github's hub package is *way* out of date18:48
cornfeedhobohopefully something like OBS/COPR18:49
leftyfbcornfeedhobo: can you be more specific on what it is you're trying to accomplish? Is there a particular package in mind you are looking to find a newer version of?18:49
oerheksnewer.. we surely backport bugfixes18:49
cornfeedhoboleftyfb: in this case it's the example i gave. the hub package is 2.7.0, but current release is 2.14.218:50
cornfeedhobookay, *way* is an exaggeration, buuuuut, the fact that the api subcommand is missing is frustrating :p18:51
leftyfbcornfeedhobo: the snap version is at 2.14.218:51
leftyfbcornfeedhobo: sudo snap install hub18:51
cornfeedhobothey recommend to not use the snap package specifically18:51
leftyfbcornfeedhobo: who is "they" and why do they recommend not to use it?18:52
cornfeedhoboas well, i'm vehemently against snap. it's a fundamentally flawed "solution"18:52
leftyfbok, good luck18:52

oerheksthen install the flatpak?18:52
cornfeedhobona. this packaging of dependencies is garbage. the core package just needs a bump18:53

oerhekssame for chromium browser, find a team for every distro to maintain it.. almost impossible.18:56
oerheksso, snaps universal packaging is the answer, yes18:56
leftyfbcornfeedhobo: I asked you what version of ubuntu you were running yesterday. That is very important in most cases when supporting someone18:57
cornfeedhobooerheks: centos, fedora, opensuse... all of them seem to get it done, with integration testing too18:57
leftyfbcornfeedhobo: ubuntu is not a rolling release18:57
cornfeedhoboneither is LEAP18:57
cornfeedhobobut again, it gets it done18:58

superbootI've got an old install I'm migrating of Ubuntu 14.04 server. When I run /etc/init.d/mysql stop, it says it shuts down, and the logs confirm it too, but it starts right back up. What is the correct way to shut it down and have it stay down?19:04
leftyfbsuperboot: you probably have some service like monit watching over services to restart them if they are stopped19:06
nick4765Hello Walex and TJ- ! I am back :)19:22
superbootleftyfb: Turns out it was Upstart.19:22

ChinaisSOYHow do I RANDOMIZE my ETHERNET MAC address on my Raspberry PI Debian Buster Lite?19:30
leftyfbChinaisSOY: try #raspberrypi19:30
ChinaisSOYI already asked there19:31
ChinaisSOYIts a general linux question19:31
leftyfbChinaisSOY: then try #linux19:31
ChinaisSOYDoes anybody here know the answer?19:31
ChinaisSOYits essentialy just a debian system19:31
leftyfbChinaisSOY: this is an Ubuntu support channel. You are not running Ubuntu. Try #raspberrypi, #debian or #linux19:31
ChinaisSOYIm using Lubuntu here19:32
alkisgChinaisSOY: ok then go to network-manager menus and select"cloned mac address"19:32
alkisgBut if you're on raspbian, there's no network-manager there...19:33
ChinaisSOYIm using Raspbian Debian Buster Lite19:33
ChinaisSOYI dont have a GUI/desktop environment, just TERMINAL19:34
leftyfbChinaisSOY: people have responded to you in both #raspberrypi and #linux. Good luck19:35
ChinaisSOYGreat, still can get more answers here19:36
nick4765TJ- if you have a moment I'd love to continue where we left off earlier19:36

ChinaisSOYHow do I reliably change my Ethernet MAC address in Raspberry Pi debian buster lite?19:41
onelegendyou use macchange19:41
ChinaisSOYI want 100% spoofed mac19:41
cornfeedhoboChinaisSOY: fwiw, debian and ubuntu differ quite a lot in out of the box configuration. what's the network manager in debian buster?19:41
ChinaisSOYdoes macchanger even work19:41
RedHeadhey, I use irssi, is there a better irc client for ubuntu? :)19:41
ChinaisSOYhas anybody tested it19:41
matsamanChinaisSOY: yes, you can confirm with ifconfig or ip or whatever19:41
matsamanChinaisSOY: you need to confirm it's changed _before_ you do whatever it is you're doing that you want it to be changed for19:41
coconutRedHead, hexchat is popular19:41
RedHeadthanks coconut!19:42
cornfeedhoboRedHead: konversation if you are a kde fan19:42
leftyfbRedHead: feel free to search the software store for other IRC clients, try them and decide which one you like best. Or ask in #ubuntu-offtopic for opinions on software19:42
coconutor weechat if you like terminal client19:42
ChinaisSOYHow do i script this19:43
leftyfbmatsaman: ChinaisSOY is actively being helped in #raspberrypi, where they should be asking for help. You should go there and chime in. Otherwise someone is just wasting their time19:43
cornfeedhoboChinaisSOY: matsaman has the right idea. essentially you get what ever network manager you are using to invoke macchanger before connecting, or after disconnecting and on boot (so it's just always random)19:43
ChinaisSOYI need it to be changed first thing19:43
ChinaisSOYI dont want the Router to see my origional ISP ever19:43
cornfeedhoboyou will need to figure that out on your own19:43
ChinaisSOYI need to setup randomized MAC upon boot19:43
matsamanChinaisSOY: that part might actually be specific to your distro19:44
cornfeedhoboyou have the pieces you need. but the rest is debian specific19:45
ChinaisSOYCan I permanantly change my built-in MAC19:45
ChinaisSOYWhy not19:45
ChinaisSOYI just want to edit the file that says 'This is the permanant mac'19:45
RedHeadit burn to the physical network adapter19:45
JonathanDThat "file" is a piece of hardware.19:46
cornfeedhobomaybe in udev? *maybe*19:46
RedHeadyour mac address19:46
JonathanDYou can edit it by replacing the network adapter.19:46
cornfeedhobobut yeah, what they are saying. the only thing you can do is configure it after boot. the network adapter mac is hardcoded19:46
ChinaisSOYCan I wrap the hardcoded mac in a randomized mac cover?19:46
ChinaisSOYcover identity19:47
ChinaisSOYso all network connections have to travel through the randimzed mac network interfacE?19:47
ChinaisSOYPreventing leaks 100%19:47
cornfeedhobothat is a more complex question. You should look into distributions like Tails and Qubes for that level of abstraction19:47
ChinaisSOYYes but I need that anonymity on my Standard OS19:48
JonathanDBeyond that, your nic is active before boot.19:48
ChinaisSOYI just need a randomized Ethernet MAC19:48
[twisti]can i somehow see what version a package is in 21.04 without having 21.04 installed ?19:48
JonathanDPossibly even when the machine is powered off.19:48
ChinaisSOYyeah Im aware Jon19:48
ChinaisSOYThats why I need permanant spoofing19:48
leftyfbChinaisSOY: your "standard OS" in not supported here. Go to #raspberrypi for support19:48
matsamanChinaisSOY: you can boot with networking mostly disabled, and then run a script to randomize the mac, and then run a script to ensure the mac was randomized and only then enable networking19:48
cornfeedhoboyou should switch to a privacy focused os that does this out of the box, it sounds like. otherwise, you need to be willing to spend more time picking apart your setup and fixing it19:48
JonathanDYou would need something hardware level, then.19:48
JonathanDIf I was that worried about the end device leaking, I might put something on the lan in between them.19:49
matsamanbut this isn't something you'd want to do with a computer at your home or place of business19:49
matsamanif you care about changing your mac, you should be using someplace else's network also19:49
leftyfbI love the whole purpose behind this though. They say there router is "backdoored". Like randomizing your MAC is going to do anything19:49
JonathanDI missed that detail :)19:50
ChinaisSOYSuch as what?19:50
leftyfbJonathanD: it's because they didn't post it here19:50
ChinaisSOYJonathan? What kind of Network condom can I use19:50
ChinaisSOYTo shield my PIs raw MAC19:50
leftyfbJonathanD: and this is why we don't cross-post19:50
ChinaisSOYI could use a WIFi to Ethernet device19:50
ChinaisSOYThen the wifi to ethernet devices MAC would be seen by the router, instead of my Raspberry PIs19:50
JonathanDI don't know of one. You'd have to implement something. Like anything that does NAT in between would cover it.19:51
cornfeedhoboChinaisSOY: you don't need to hide your mac unless you are connecting to a router you don't control.19:51
leftyfbor ask for support for an OS in a completely different OS's support channel19:51
ChinaisSOYBut i feel that we should be able to permanantly randomize MAC more easily and reliably19:51
ChinaisSOYRight, the router Im connecting to, I dont control, its a backdoored ISp router19:51
cornfeedhobo.... then just put a router in front of it19:51
TJ-nick4765: sorry, been working on something else. Did you try a slot-swap of the GPU?19:51
ChinaisSOYI dont have one19:51
JonathanDChinaisSOY: you'd want to talk to the pi development/manufacturing team if you want permament random. That would have to be a hardware solution.19:51
cornfeedhobogo buy one19:51
ChinaisSOYI live under a train station19:52
JonathanDWelp, I'm out.19:52
cornfeedhobookay, i don't care. routers cost $35.19:52
cornfeedhobodo you see my name?!?19:52
ChinaisSOYIm stealing power from a lamppost and an ehternet cable from the local coffe shops wall19:52
cornfeedhoboyeah, i get you man19:52
nick4765TJ-  all good! No I didn't try that, I looked in the manual and it shows that the one I have is slot 1, the only two listed are slots 1 and 2.19:52
TJ-nick4765: mine was the same; Asus Prime X370-Pro19:53
nick4765Oh no way! Yeah, good mobo so far. Has been solid.19:53
nick4765The mobo manual is trash though, doesn't go into which busses are which for the PCI, etc.19:54
TJ-nick4765: It was only in the firmware's setup, for GPU, where it shows a pretty diagram of the slots that there was a little note recommending changing the slot I had it in... like you I had it in slot 119:54
TJ-I think in the firmware setup's Advanced mode, it was accessed via the last-but-one tab19:54
[twisti]i hope its okay to post this again, it seems like the question was lost in that bizarre troll story about living under a bridge; can i somehow see what version a package is in 21.04 without having 21.04 installed ?19:55
nick4765Wow. Well, I mean, hey what have I got to lose? Can always put it back. Let me try that. I'll be back in a little bit. So your slot 1 is "top" and slot 2 is "down" from there, correct?19:55
nick4765if you have it oriented in case setup19:55
TJ-[twisti]: yes, using the rmadison tool19:55
TJ-nick4765: i think so; let me look before you go!19:55
nick4765Twisti I think you can just run lsb_release –a19:56
[twisti]nick4765: and then ?19:56
nick4765Also yeah, that was incredibly bizarre story. Haha.19:56
TJ-nick4765: not for checking a package. Slot 3 is middle of the bunch. slot 1 nearest CPU19:56
nick4765Oh whoops! Sorry, I was thinking release version .My mistake19:57
TJ-[twisti]: which package did you want to know about?19:57
TJ-!info podman hirsute | [twisti]19:57
ubottu[twisti]: podman (3.0.1+dfsg1-1ubuntu1, hirsute): engine to run OCI-based containers in Pods. In component universe, is optional. Built by libpod. Size 8,950 kB / 36,629 kB19:57
nick4765I only have two slots on mine, TJ-. Well, x16 slots at least. I think the bottom-most full length slot is an x8. But either way yeah I think slot 2 is the middle one19:57
TJ-[twisti]: do you use podman with crun rather than runc?19:58
nick4765I will be back in a bit! (I really need to start using an IRC client...)19:58
[twisti]i dont know what that is or means. im not using podman at all at the moment, havent even decided what distro im going with, thats why i asked19:59
[twisti]i dont want to set up a system only to realize it comes with an ancient podman version19:59
TJ-[twisti]: ahhh... crun is a nice, simple, C-language container runtime, rather than golang. Advantages are it can natively interface with the kernel whereas golanf has to pull all sorts of weird tricks19:59
TJ-[twisti]: runc and others are usually golang20:00
[twisti]im setting this whole thing up to learn podman, and i dont know anything about runc, crunc, golang or any of the other things you said yet, looking forward to learning about it though :D20:00
TJ-[twisti]: it's a steep learning curve :)20:01
cornfeedhobo^ truth20:10
TJ-Also, a lot of the worst of devops and NIH in the OCI world20:11
TJ-takes many months to realise that it's abstractions for abstractions sake, and unnecessary20:11
nick4765TJ- No difference, notably.20:20
nick4765Although now my taskbar in Windows is different but I can deal with that later haha20:20
TJ-nick4765: darn- would have been an easy solution20:22
TJ-nick4765: it is booted into Ubuntu now? if so, show us " pastebinit <(lspci -nn; journalctl -k) "20:23
nick4765No doubt, and yes I'm in Ubuntu at the moment.20:25
TJ-nick4765: might not be related but: !kernel: pci 0000:0a:00.0: 16.000 Gb/s available PCIe bandwidth, limited by 2.5 GT/s PCIe x8 link at 0000:00:03.2 (capable of 126.016 Gb/s with 8.0 GT/s PCIe x16 link)"20:31
nick4765Whoa, that's kind of weird... so that's saying that one of my x16 slots is being limited to x8 speeds?20:32
nick4765I wonder if it said the same before I moved slots20:33
nick4765In the Nvidia X Server settings under GPU 0 it also says PCIe Generation Gen 3, x16 but then link speed 8.0 GT/s20:34
nick4765I didn't notice if it said the same before20:35
nick4765I am 93.5% sure the physical port is set to x16 link speed in BIOS but I can check that20:35
nick4765Either way, it shouldn't saturate an x8 slot I don't think? Not sure on that20:35

SimmerTJ- This is nick4765, I grabbed Hex chat.20:39
TJ-there's nothing else in the log file and I've read every line20:39
TJ-Simmer: ^^^20:39
SimmerSo freaking weird. Well, let me restart and poke into BIOS to see if the link speed changed at all there. I shall return! I really appreciate all your help, truly. Thank you so much for your time.20:39
TJ-Simmer: show us "pastebinit <( sudo strings /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT | grep -i windows | sort )"20:40
SimmerShows empty document20:41
Simmeroh wait, one sec20:41
Simmerit asks for my pw but doesn't wait and says unable to read, I/O error. Then says you're trying to send empty document.20:42
SimmerSo I'm not sure if it's truly empty or it just can't access20:42
SimmerI'm guessing it's interpreting the 'sudo strings' part as root access?20:43
Simmerer, superuser20:43
SimmerI shall return, let me poke into BIOS real quick.20:44
SimmerHi TJ sorry about the delay there. I am back, though now on my laptop with IRC so I don't have to keep leaving and coming back.21:08
TJ-Simmer: show us "pastebinit <( sudo strings /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT | grep -i windows | sort )" from the problem machine. the sudo command shouled cause you to be asked for your password21:09
SimmerAnd now my laptop freaked out and I lost what you just said. I'm sorry. I'm pretty sure at this point I'm going to set fire to everything and never touch a computer again.21:11
TJ-Simmer: show us "pastebinit <( sudo strings /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT | grep -i windows | sort )" from the problem machine. the sudo command shouled cause you to be asked for your password21:11
TJ-Simmer: I know the feeling; technology takes one look at me and fails in unique ways, just to test me!21:12
SimmerIn BIOS I noticed two things. First, under Tool > GPU Post it states to use slot 1 if using a single GPU so I went ahead and swapped back. Second, it shows that slot as x8 and there isn't an option to switch to x16 so I'm looking into that on the hardware side of things. Might need to update BIOS21:12
SimmerYes, no doubt. I'm still in BIOS on my main PC so it will be a few for that command. I will paste as soon as possible.21:13
TJ-Simmer: that's OK :) the output of tha command lists the Windows versions hard-coded into the motherboard, and we need to identify the 'latest' and ensure it is being faked by Linux to ensure all ACPI functions are available. Those can affect discovery of outputs on GPUs.21:16
TJ-Simmer: another thing, if this is related to ACPI, is to boot from cold power off, suspend to RAM, resume, and check if the outputs have appeared21:17
AsenMxHello, I know this is not the right channel, but i will ask anyway. Anyone familiar with gitlab CICD deployment to AWS ECS ? I21:20
SimmerInteresting that Windows is hard-coded into the motherboard. That seems..... anti-competitive...21:20
TJ-Simmer: different functionality is enabled depending on what OS reports as running21:20
TJ-Linux has fake being the 'latest' version of Windows to ensure ACPI is fully enabled21:21
TJ-so we check which Windows versions are encoded in the ACPI's DSDT21:21
TJ-I've had a system that lost its outputs after a suspend/resume for example, unless the acpi_osi was set correctly21:23
Simmersudo: unable to read password: Input/output error21:24
SimmerYou are trying to send an empty document, exiting.21:24
SimmerThat's what I get on that command21:24
TJ-Hmmm, are you doing that over ssh?21:24
SimmerNo, direct21:24
TJ-hmmm, that is VERY weird. If it were over ssh, I'd say you need "ssh -t" to create a pseudo-tty21:24
SimmerCan I try forcing native resolution to the secondary just to see what happens?21:25
TJ-it suggests devpts isn't available21:25
SimmerWhat's devpts?21:25
TJ-pseudo-tty devices21:25
TJ-check it's there "mount | grep devpts" should show it mounted at /dev/pts21:26
SimmerI'm almost tempted to just buy a new motherboard... haha21:26
TJ-Simmer: one thing I'd try here, is to remove the nvidia driver and let the nouveau driver run the GPU, and see if it discovers the outputs and can get the modes21:27
Simmerdevpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)21:27
tomreynthis is an Asus PRIME X370-PRO, BIOS 5220 09/12/2019 with matisse cpu. matisse cpus were sold starting july 7 2019.21:27
TJ-I know it's not easy to remove cleanly though21:27
TJ-Simmer: install the latest firmware - it was released last month21:28
SimmerYeah, it was the first BIOS released that supported 3rd gen Ryzen21:28
TJ-I updated the firmware on mine a couple days ago, so I know :)21:29
SimmerI had a first gen ryzen in this mobo first, then upgraded when they released BIOS support for the 3rd gen21:29
Simmeram running a 3700x now21:29
TJ-Mine's used for running thousands of containers21:29
SimmerAnd yeah, not going to lie it's slightly discouraging that some things take so many steps to do like cleanly removing driver, etc.21:29
SimmerI run a supermicro board for that TJ! Haha but wow thousands? and I thought my docker server was big... I used to run 40 containers until I cleaned it up a bit. Do you run kubernetics or whatever it's called?21:30
TJ-Simmer: no, we dumped k8s because its a total load of devops NIH  %^$$"21:31
SimmerAh, I see! Fair enough21:31
TJ-Been developing our own alternative using standard distro packages, network protocols, etc.21:31
SimmerSweet! That's awesome21:32
SimmerIt looks like there's a BIOS that was released two days ago! wow! Not sure I should go that new..... it's version 5606 which one did you update to?21:33
SimmerThe previous was last year21:33
alzghDoing `man apt` I get under "SEE ALSO" `apt-get(8), apt-cache(8), sources.list(5), apt.conf(5), apt-config(8),`. But `man sources.list` doesn't give me anything. Do I need to install something?21:34
TJ-Simmer: 560621:34
SimmerAh okay I will use that one. It shows release date of August 9th21:34
TJ-Simmer: that's the one, but the CAPsule file inside is dated end of July21:35
SimmerAhhhh gotcha fair enough21:35
TJ-extract the .CAP file from the ZIP, but it on a FAT-formatted USB, stick it in a port, and use the firmware's Eazy-Update function to select the USB device and the file21:36
tomreynalzgh: sources.list(5) is part of the APT manual (at least in version 1.6.14)21:36
TJ-Simmer: if this fixes it, saves a lot of messing about21:36
SimmerWill do! There's also an EXE in the zip called BIOSRenamer ... why would you need to rename it?21:36
SimmerYeah no doubt21:37
TJ-Simmer: ignore it :)21:37
SimmerI did see on some changelogs for previous versions "added fixes for certain linux distros"21:37
TJ-Simmer: but by all means rename the long-name to something shorter using standard tools21:37
Simmerwhich I think I have one older21:37
tomreynalzgh: also on focal and impish it's part of apt: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/focal/en/man5/sources.list.5.html21:37
TJ-Simmer: I think I renamed it to 5606.cap21:37
SimmerFair. I would just use windows explorer's rename method if I did21:38
alzghtomreyn O, man. I was typing "source" instead of "sources". Thanks.21:38
tomreynoops :)21:39
SimmerMy current BIOS verison is 5220 - updating now21:41
SimmerBIOS update complete, went smooth. Interestingly enough the option I was looking at prior that showed only x8 was renamed to "PCIEx16_2 Bifurcation" where auto is x8 or you can split it to do a hardware raid or other. Also guessing it ONLY affects slow 2 which I am not using anymore, back to slot 1. In GPU post it says nvidia GPU running at native21:53
Simmerx16 so it all seems okay and I think I was just confused on the previous name before it was updated to reflect the bifurcation ability.21:53
SimmerMakes way more sense now, I use bifurcation on my server board.21:53
SimmerRe-enabled XMP and rebooting now to get back into Ubuntu21:54
SimmerHmm, well BIOS says it's fine running max but the nvidia control panel still shows 4 lanes @ 5.4gbps link. Not sure why.22:02
SimmerTJ You've been amazing and I so very much appreciate all your time and help today. I'm going to call it for the day. I don't think I'm going to get too much farther on this issue with my current hardware sadly. I think that second monitor is just too old. Thanks agian man, really appreciate it.22:20
TJ-Simmer: good luck with it :)22:27
TJ-Simmer: if you feel up to it, don't forget the nouveau experiment22:27
hoppityIs it more secure to have two login screens in a web app? (one for regular users and one for admins) or is this fake security?22:29
coryc257hoppity, if it's a second login and not just same same username/password it's more secure. especially if you make the admin section have no images/javascript except when absolutely required so you can have a web browser with all the features turned off22:31
leftyfbhoppity: try #security. Your question is not an ubuntu support question22:32
hoppitythanks guys22:33
SimmerGood call TJ! Sorry my thing disconnected. Alrighty, cheers! I will follow up with ya later on. Thanks again22:36
