Gallomimiai'm having some rather odd sound relics, only when listening to the band "Infected Mushroom" on youtube. certain parts of the song just downright cut out. i feel like that portion is supposed to be in the surround channels or something.

forgotmynickon https://manpages.debian.org/testing/fuse/mount.fuse.8.en.html#kernel_cache it basically says specifying this option will disable kernel caching but then on https://cloud.ibm.com/docs/cloud-object-storage?topic=cloud-object-storage-s3fs#s3fs-performance it says it enables kernel caching - could someone clarify please?00:31

computerjoe314Hello all, as mentioned previously I've been experiencing random very high CPU usage on one core even with no applications running. As requested, I looked at it with perf top, and perf top tells me that intel_gpio_community_irq_handler is the process heavily using my processor. What is that, and how can I resolve it?00:46
Gallomimiagpio stands for general purpose input output. usually present on an arduino or rPi, so is that what you're running?00:55
tomreyncomputerjoe314: are you using a trackpad or mouse?00:55
Gallomimiai'm going to say if you got one of those machines.... something is shorting to those pins00:55
tomreyncomputerjoe314: see if it doesn't happen when you use a mouse rather than the trackpad00:56
computerjoe314It's my HP Pavilion - 14-ce300:56
computerjoe314tomreyn: I'll try it, but I00:57
computerjoe314'm pretty sure it's happened even with mouse00:57
tomreynusb mouse?00:57
computerjoe314Correct. Don't recall it exactly and I will try it.00:58
computerjoe314If that is it what the issue is what can be done to fix it?00:58
tomreynalso look for a bios update, it may come with an embedded controller update which would fix this00:59
computerjoe314BIOS is up to date. That was the first thing I tried.00:59
tomreyn"14-ce3" is a series, not an exact model.  journalctl -b | grep DMI:   may be more precise00:59
tomreynoh ok00:59
computerjoe314My records show it's a HP Pavilion - 14-ce3065st. BIOS version is F.1401:00
computerjoe314I see F.15 is now out though, but it's a windows package.01:02
tomreynhttps://github.com/VoodooI2C/VoodooI2C/issues/259 is what brought up the idea about it being related to gpio interrupt mode / i2c / trackpad (but this is probably not the one you have there): https://github.com/VoodooI2C/VoodooI2C/issues/25901:02
ubottuIssue 259 in VoodooI2C/VoodooI2C "kernel_task high CPU usage while trackpad is used" [Closed]01:02
computerjoe314How to you recommend I update the BIOS if it's a Windows package?01:03
tomreynbased on the documentation HP provides for it, if any01:04

Gallomimiawell the easiest way is by booting to windows obviously. that may not be desirable or practical. they have ways to get it done with linux01:07
computerjoe314Don't have any windows to boot it too :-) . Updated the BIOS with the windows it came with, then wiped it.01:10
Gallomimiayeah as i suspected. but it is possible using only linux01:11
Gallomimianot recommended when late at night. sleep induced mistakes can be fatal01:11
tomreynit's quite convenient really, you can just place the files on the efi sp, no need for a usb stick01:14

Sven_vBwhat options do I have in focal to make the "system halted" message fancier? I'd love to have a big figlet font message about how it's now safe to turn off the AC power adapter, but still see the log messages above about what systemd did to achieve halting.03:29
MrConorAElike the retro "it is now safe to turn off your computer"03:30
MrConorAESven_vB ?03:30
Gallomimiathat'd be sweet03:31
Sven_vByeah inspired by that :)03:32
Sven_vBthinking of it, is there a way to boot into another ramdisk instead of halting? then I could even do fancy things like play a sound and then send a network message to a wifi-enabled wall socket to cut power there.03:33
Sven_vBor maybe can I just return control back to GRUB?03:34
Sven_vBbecause at that point I know how to make GRUB boot that ramdisk.03:34
Sven_vBsetting a grubenv flag and then rebooting would achieve the ramdisk boot but would wipe the systemd log messages. and my BIOS would waste about 2 minutes trying to detect USB stuff.03:35
Sven_vBand I'd have to figure out how to make that ramdisk not log its own boot messages to screen.03:37
Sven_vBmaybe systemd can give control back to the ramdisk that started systemd, and that ramdisk can then undo the file system root switching03:39
Sven_vB(and run stuff included in that original ramdisk)03:40

alkisgSircle: windows.iso's don't work with dd05:23
alkisgThe problem is in the .isos, not in the dd05:24
Sirclealkisg why?05:24
alkisgThey're not "hybrid" like linux isos05:24

KolusionDoes anyone know how to make the complicated firewall 'ufw' allow for both in and out for the smtp service of a particular IP address? I tried the following, but it didn't work: ufw allow stmp everywhere on
arhueKolusion I think out should work by default. For in you will have to allow the port through, yes. Have you tried using just iptables?14:37
arhueAlso make sure you aren't behind a NAT14:38
Kolusionarhue: You might have a point about out working for default. I will check if I can access a website now with the firewall enable.14:38
arhueKolusion Are you trying this on a VPS or at home? Make sure the interface has a public ID/it works when firewall is off14:39

computerjoe314Looking for some help updating my BIOS of my HP Pavilion - 14-ce3065st. All they give is a Windows executable, FreeDos doesn't like it, and I don't see any option within the uefi settings to choose a bios file. What other options are there besides downloading windows onto a usb drive?16:30
zerocan anyone help me? i just updated to 20.04 and i think i broke some packages16:32
zeroi might have removed them unintentionally and can't install them back with apt16:33
tomreyncomputerjoe314: you found a step by step guide on this yesterday, didn't you? did you try it?16:33
computerjoe314Yes, that says there is an option in my BIOS to choose a file. Don't see that option.16:34
ravagecomputerjoe314: Actually, you only need a Windows computer to execute the downloadable BIOS firmware file (e.g. sp76865.exe) to create the BIOS recovery USB flash drive. Then you can power up your Stream notebook with the USB inserted while holding down the Windows key and B key and the HP BIOS update utility will run16:34
tomreynzero: what makes you think that you broke some packages? was there some error reported? does something not work as expected?16:34
zerotomreyn: this is what i'm struggling with now: "Package php7.2-mysql is not available, but is referred to by another package.  This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source"16:35
ravagecomputerjoe314: i think you only need the 086AA.bin from the .exe you downloaded on the USB drive16:35
ravagecomputerjoe314: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c0269383316:35
zerotomreyn: apt search php7.2-mysql gives me "php7.2-mysql/now 7.2.34-26+ubuntu18.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 amd64 [residual-config]"16:36
computerjoe314'll take a loot. Thanks16:36
tomreynzero you apparently were using the 3rd party php repository from sury.org16:38
zerooh iguess i was. i don't remember. why did it break though?16:38
tomreynzero: ubuntu upgrade paths are tested with ubuntu packages only, when you have third party packages, they may fail, and often do.16:39
tomreynzero: that's one of the reasons third party packages are unsupported16:40
zerooh i see16:40
tomreynzero: the php packages from sury use a different configuration mechanism than ubuntu's, to make multiple php versions co-installable. it also makes the sury and ubuntu php packages incompatible to one another16:41
tomreynzero: you have the leftover php configuration from sury's packages in /etc - i suggest you back it up (unless you - hopefully, before a release upgrade - already did) and then just purge the sury php packages, and install the ubuntu ones (or reinstall the sury ones if you want to use those on 20.04 again)16:42
computerjoe314zero: Could you please clarify what you meant about the bin file? I put it on the flash drive and the recovery tool doesn't like that. Is there any other way to do with without windows?16:47
ravageyou can extract the .exe with 7z16:50
tomreyncomputerjoe314: it may matter how you put it on the flash drive. did you use the approach discussed at https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebooks-Archive-Read-Only/How-to-update-BIOS-on-Linux/m-p/5441775/highlight/true#M1205498 ?16:51
computerjoe314Did that first. Was a bit confused about having no BIOSUpdate folder, so I just put everything there.16:52
computerjoe314That didn't work16:52
tomreynyou need an mbr or gpt partitioned usb connected storage, a fat32 formatted partition, and on there, this directory structure: Hewlett-Packard/BIOS/New/ - thats the directory you place the bin file in16:54
tomreyncreate these directories if they don't exist16:54

[itchyjunk]I wanted to install python-pip3 but it complained about 404 errors and suggest update but `apt get update` also has issues17:47
[itchyjunk]ubuntu 20.0417:47
ravageyour vps is riscv64?17:48
[itchyjunk]oh ohh, no it shouldn't be17:49
[itchyjunk]it's oracle ARM free tier17:49
[itchyjunk]i was trying to install riscv64 gcc some times ago though.. ;_; what did i break?17:50
ravageyour sources.list file17:50
[itchyjunk]Is there an easy fix?17:50
tomreynoracle free tier is either amd64 or arm, but i forgot which arm17:51
ravagei guess you mean arm6417:51
[itchyjunk]yes i picked the arm one, w/e it was :(17:51
tomreynyes, most likely, ravage17:51
[itchyjunk]i have no idea what i even did to break apt..17:51
ravagei would try to replace riscv64 with arm6417:51
ravageand just try again17:52
tomreynAmpere A1 says https://www.oracle.com/cloud/free/17:52
[itchyjunk]hmm, what am i googling for? i want to replace apt's search folder from riscv to arm from what i understand. trying to find a tutorial that tells me how17:55
ravageyou open a text editor and replace the word riscv64 with arm6417:55
ravagein /etc/apt/sources.list17:55
ravageor you can use "sed -i 's/riscv64/amd64/g' /etc/apt/sources.list17:56
ravagesmae mistake17:56
ravagesed -i 's/riscv64/arm64/g' /etc/apt/sources.list17:56
ravagei just type amd64 too often17:56
tomreynravage: to increase confusion, they offer both as of their free tier, that's why i wrote "amd64 or [some] arm"17:57
ravageapplying for one of them now. sounds interesting. would like to know what oracle offers for free17:58
[itchyjunk]ran the command, no error. rand `sudo apt update` , still has issues : https://bpa.st/G3VA17:58
ravageare there files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d ?17:59
[itchyjunk]its a few different to chose from. Arm was least available because everyone is grabbing. it starts as a trial but when trial ends, you just get all the free tiers17:59
[itchyjunk]ls shows nothing17:59
ravagecat /etc/apt/sources.list | nc termbin.com 999918:00
ravageok. looks like you switched the system arch somehow18:01
ravagewhat does "edpkg --print-architecture" show?18:02
ravagedpkg --print-architecture18:02
ravagethat is even more strange18:03
tomreynamd64 or arm64?18:03
tomreynmaybe you're actually on the free amd64 tier18:04
ravagelscpu | grep Architecture18:04
ravageshould be enough18:04
[itchyjunk]lscpu https://bpa.st/TK2A18:04
ravageok thats no ARM vps :)18:05
[itchyjunk];_; i got bamboozeled18:05
[itchyjunk]maybe when my trial ended they switched me over ? if that's possible18:05
ravagedpkg --print-foreign-architectures18:05
ravageapt-get purge ".*:riscv64"18:06
tomreynyou don't exactly know what you're doing, right :)18:06
ravagedpkg --remove-architecture riscv6418:06
[itchyjunk]right, i barely know what i am doing18:07
[itchyjunk]i've used ubuntu locally but generally by just clicking gui stuff18:07
tomreynit's fine, sorry there. but you must have followed some tutorial which is not suitable for the computer you're working with.18:08
[itchyjunk]but how did i manage to break all this without knowing what i am doing?18:08
[itchyjunk]i was installing qemu to run a riscv "hello world" asm code18:08
[itchyjunk]i somehow broke apt while doing that18:08
tomreynhmm that might actuall ymake sense the, to add riscv as a foreign architecture, so you can build a riscv guest system. but this is not something i'd recommend as a first linux command line training18:10
tomreynalso further virtualization may not be possible on this VM you're working on. and riscv would be very slow.18:11
[itchyjunk]ah, that makes sense18:12
tomreynwell, you can probably just reinstall the system with the click of a button, so it should be a safe testing environment.18:13
[itchyjunk]right, the only think of value on it is the pissnet ircd that's running18:14
[itchyjunk]rest is all experiments. i only realized things are broken because i was trying to install pip3 so i can install pytorch18:14
tomreynif you have something running there that you need to keep running, then i'd recommend against cross architectural experiments.18:15
[itchyjunk]lesson learned :s i thought eqmu was safe because all the things would be running in that emulator and not impact anything else18:16
[itchyjunk]everything works now, btw!18:16
tomreynthat's usually correct, once it is up and running.18:16
ravagelooks like the oracle cloud is full :P18:18
[itchyjunk]i think when i was trying to install and run the riscv-gcc thing that compiled code for riscv, that is when all tis happened18:19
[itchyjunk]oh there is no signup available? crazy, i got mine just a few months ago18:19
ravagei can sign up. but cant create a VM18:19
[itchyjunk]ah insteresting. maybe the region you picked? i had to switch a bit to find places with arm.. but apparently i got amd somehow18:21
ravagenow it worked18:22
[itchyjunk]this might be a dumb question but a vps wouldn't have gpu available right? I'd just be installing pytorch for CPU?18:22
ravagethe free tiers do not offer GPUs for sure18:23
ravagemaybe you can buy a bare metal server. but i dont know what oracle offers18:23
[itchyjunk]i'll just stick to the free stuff :P18:24

the_actorHi there. I am experiencing strange path issues with Ubuntu 20.04 that I have not in the past. I am trying to figure out if it is something I am doing or if it is some bug or error in bash or the recent Ubuntu 20.04 config.18:33
the_actorAnybody else experiencing strange path issues where absolute paths must be specified? I was told in ancient Unix there were some unique varibles that were defiend prior to the Shabang statement to address this. Any thoughts?18:34
=== bloodninja123 is now known as bloodninja
tomreynthe_actor: it'll be best to come up with a concrete example of what you think is strange.18:36
the_actortomreyn: For instance if my script is doing : grep -A 1 -B 50 'since 2.6.0' /tmp/tmpwp/wordpress/wp-config-sample.php >> /tmp/tmpwp/wordpress/wp-config.php Unless I specifically specify the path, the script goes into a black hole.18:38
the_actortomreyn: I have even tried to put in a statement like pwd; read pause to see whats is going on. This stuff was not happening before.18:39
ravageyou can assume th18:40
ravageat the current LTS is not broken in that way18:40
the_actortomreyn: It could be something stupid I am missing, I'm still scratching my head.18:41
the_actorravage: I know I am just trying to figure out why all my scripts broke. I have even spun up multiple vms to test. I should test with another distro perhaps?18:42
ravageyou should test with the distro you want to use18:42
the_actorravage: Any ideas where I should be looking for the problem? I have been working on it for 3 days.18:43
tomreynthe_actor: in scripts, it can make sense to specifically indicate the shell, or environment, you mean to work in, using the hashbang18:44
tomreynif this is a crontab, note they don't usually run in a full bash shell18:44
the_actortomreyn: I even changed #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash. No it is not cron. A lot of this commands were working in 18 but required sudo in 20.04. I am trying to figure out if this is on my part or something in the OS or config changed in 20.04... Its probably my mistake somwhere.18:46
tomreynthe_actor: how was this ubuntu 20.04 system installed? if you're using a pre-installed image, which hosting provider?18:53
tomreynand what is the PATH variable set to? and di you modify it?18:55
tomreyn*did you18:55
the_actortomreyn: No, I have a ProxMox VE server here and I dropped the cd iso for 20.04 server and did a standard install with the addition of sshd.18:56
the_actortomreyn: No I did not modify it. I set the path to the files that need to be worked on with the cd command. The Bash script does not seem to be following the path changes...18:57
tomreynso you modified PATH. does it work when you don't?18:58
tomreynin fact you're first saying that you did not modify PATH, then you say you did. i can't follow.18:59
oerheks' Bash script does not seem to be following the path changes...' .. why would it?18:59
the_actortomreyn: I am not sure. The script is in the user's home dir, so in order to work on the target files it needs to cd.18:59
the_actortomreyn: Forgive me for being unclear. I have not set a modification to the system path. I pnly change path as required with the cd command in the script as needed.19:00
the_actoroerheks: So why did in in previous versions? Am I using bash in a way not intended?19:02
MaoOpchi there19:02
the_actoroerheks: I am confused because it used to work like this.19:02
MaoOpcHow can i access to a smb share on win from ubuntu ?19:02
GrayGhostsorry wrong screen19:15
tomreynthe_actor: can you share the output of this, running on the ubuntu system?   nc termbin.com 9999 < <(lsb_release -ds;cat /proc/{version_signature,cmdline};echo "Session: $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP ($XDG_SESSION_TYPE)";echo Shell: $SHELL; echo Path: $PATH)19:16
