mybalzitchlol ubuntu. "Use the mutt client in snap? It's NEWER!" okay fine. Oh, by default the snap can't access the /var folder and thats why I can't access my local mailbox. Awesome.01:17
sarnoldhopefully it's just a snap connect away or something01:22
ograsarnold, https://github.com/snapcrafters/mutt/blob/master/snap/snapcraft.yaml ... doesnt look like ... (only home ans network plugs)01:29
sarnoldogra: oh interesting find, thanks; does this mean that whoever packaged this has never tested it with eg postfix or fetchmail on the 'local' system?01:31
sarnoldogra: interesting, it's got to package along three different editors, too01:31
ograsarnold, i think popey packaged it originally ... and perhaps only tested from an enduser perspective ... adding a system-files interface for /var/mail access might be enough though01:33
sarnoldogra: heh, that doesn't feel like entirely the right name for that :) and probably a postfix or procmail snap would want similar accesses, too..01:34
ograwell, getting a new interface into snapd can take months (or longer if someone thinks an architect needs to review it) ... a system-files entry in snapcraft.yaml is just 4 lines and being nice to alex and emilia in the forum to get it auto-connected 😉01:36
ograbut yeah, might make sense in the long term to have some "mail-spool" interface or some such01:37
sarnoldright up there with usenet-spool... :)01:38
ednashis there any way to check which packages depend on a given package, for a ubuntu distributin, without actually install it? like a web tool may be?02:03
ednashspecifically, i want to know which packages have a dependency on snap in 22.04. i heard in 22.04 firefox is installed via snap (that makes me worried)02:04
sarnoldednash: web front end thing at https://packages.ubuntu.com/  -- it might also be suitable to grab the relevant files off the archives and either use those directly, or trick apt into using them..02:04
sarnoldednash: that's way easier to see: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox02:05
ednashwow that's awesome! thanks02:06
ednashwonder if there's a way to do that in reverse. i.e. see which packages depend on X (not which packages X depends on)02:08
sarnoldednash: apt-rdepends is great for these kinds of questions, but it runs according to your apt sources..02:10
sarnold(though it supports an --option=Apt::Option::Here thing, maybe that could be used to use different apt sources than The System apt sources)02:11
ednashi might install it in a virtual machine to see02:11
ednashbut i guess it won't add that much info now that the link confirms firefox is a snap package02:12
ednashlaunchpad is pretty neat :)02:14
sarnoldyeah there's lots of cool stuff in there if only you know how to drive it :)02:16

pycuriousI've a Kernel panic - not cyning: Fatal exception in interrupt - any ideas on how to debug this? My machine sometimes goes into this state these days?02:48
sarnoldpycurious: grab a screenshot of the stack trace if you get one; run memtest86 or memtest86+ when you've got a few spare hours; consider if you've got sufficient powersupply for the machine's load, etc02:55

Lebela_I was told to come here from #bash03:02
Lebela_I currently mount my external LUKS encrypted devices by using  "tail -f /var/log/syslog"  and seeing what new device comes in.03:02
jhutchinspycurious: Yeah, open the case, clean the components, reseat modules, cards, and cables.03:02
Lebela_then:   sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdc1 foo03:02
Lebela_and then:  sudo mount /dev/mapper/foo   /mnt/foo03:02
Lebela_the goal is, to auto-mount the luks encrypted drives, but the /dev/ mountpoint changes03:03
Lebela_so it must the the UUID we're looking at03:03
Lebela_the LUKS container has a different UUID than the filesystem inside03:03
Lebela_/etc/fstab alone does not help,  "crypttab" is also needed03:03
Lebela_and I am a bit (or many bits) overwhelmed by it all03:03
jhutchinsLebela_: Simplest test is to try one, then the other.03:03
sarnoldLebela_: I have to wonder if this should be done via udev scripts instead03:05
sarnoldLebela_: those are built around getting kernel event notifications and taking action03:05

oerheksmaybe because you have UEFI, our memtest is mbr only, use the live iso on the memtest site03:26

Juice80539Hello, I have a multiples question I'd like to ask on https://discourse.ubuntu.com/c/multipass/21 but I can't post. Is there another good channel for support? I've already asked here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/139537303:47
sarnoldJuice80539: there's a #multipass channel here that might work03:51
Juice80539oh so there Is! Thank you. Its missing from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList03:52
sarnoldit's not *really* an ubuntu thing, despite being strongly ubuntu-oriented.. I'm not sure it really fits in any of the existing categories. maybe it should, hehe03:55

k_szeSomething isn't right. On Ubuntu 20.04 (on WSL2), `cp -r` behaves differently depending on whether the destination folder already exists. Is that normal?08:48
=== EricFan1 is now known as EricFan
matsamank_sze: yeah08:52
llutzk_sze: should be. If destination not exists, it will create it and you get a copy of "source". If destination exists, it will copy "source" into that08:52
k_szeLooks like I need to add `-T` for it to be "idempotent", regardless of whether the destination already exists.08:53
matsamanthink I'd either switch to rsync08:54

FossilIs there anyway I could detect which network interface has link, BEFORE either interface has been configured? Im dumping images back onto different hardware so the iface names keep changing rendering my netplan.yml useless because I need to go in and set the correct interface name. "ip link" doesn't do much because it shows DOWN until a proper IP or DHCP has been configured on the correct iface name. Trying to script this.11:05
alkisg`ip link` should say LOWER_UP even if the device doesn't have an ip, right?11:13
FossilNah it just says DOWN11:14
alkisgAnd what happens if you set it up without asking for an IP?11:14
FossilThese devices have 2 NICs and I need to check which one has link and configure that one for DHCP11:15
FossilI figured easy, just do ip link and use that. But a 30 second job has become a 2 hour search now already lol11:15
Fossildmesg or syslog arent helpful either. Just say one iface. got disconnected if I switch the cable. It's like it doesnt see it as connected to anything until it has an IP11:17
Fossil- /sys/class/net/(interface name here)/operstate this doesnt work either. Just says down until IP configured11:17
FossilSame with ethtool11:17
oerheksfor i in $( ls /sys/class/net ); do echo -n $i: ; cat /sys/class/net/$i/carrier; done11:20
oerheksany :1 is connected?11:20
Fossiloerheks Comes back with invalid argument on the interface which has a cable in it but nothing configured in netplan11:24
Fossilif I bring the interface up with ifconfig IFACE up then it looks like it shows a :1. Maybe thats the trick? Just force every interface found to be up and then loop through /sys/class/net11:26
oerheksNo force, it should work11:26
alkisgYeah that's what I suggested above, ip link set up dev enp4s011:26
Fossiloerheks Just says invalid arg on the one with the cable in. So maybe what alkisg says works as a "dirty" workaround11:28

jhutchinssybariten: It looks like everything's in the cifs-utils package these days.  Used to be more complicated.15:13

RoyKhi all. I have an HP EliteBook 725 G3 and I've setup Ubuntu 20.04.4 with it. Works well, but - if the screen blanks, it stays blank until I strike a key. Fine - but - then it keeps blanking the screen every 7 seconds or so for about 1 second and then going back non-blanked, which rather ruins my day. After logging out and hitting the login prompt, this behavour is still there22:21
