blasterhow do I remove a binary and remove all the relics of it throughout the system, if I have a binary in /usr/local/bin, if I just delete that, surely theres a bunch of other files somewhere that should be removed aswell?01:48
blasterit's not managed by aptitude either01:49
Bashing-omblaster: dpkg got a handle on it - ' ls -al /var/lib/dpkg/info/<your_package>.list ' ?01:53
blasterNo unfortunately, I think I got rid of it though.  There was a dot directory in my home directory containing most of the configuration files, so I just removed the binary.01:55

lblume'afternoon channel14:42
confuzeusafternoon, god of world time14:44
lblumeI've installed Ubuntu 20.04 on a Proliant DL380p Gen8. There was no noticeable issue. When I tried the HWE kernel, 5.13, it started misbehaving: the keyboard input on the ILO console becomes horribly slow, about one char / second appears.14:45
ogralblume, why did you switch to hwe ? do you need it to enable some HW that is unsupported in the generic kernel ?14:46
lblumeogra: As a test, mainly.14:48
ogralblume, then i'd switch back to generic and report it on launchpad so it can be researched ... perhaps also ask in #ubuntu-kernel where the kernel guys hang out14:49
leftyfbthough, "keyboard on the ILO console"   that is completely out of band from the OS. The kernel running on the OS should have no affect on that14:56
jhutchinsWould this be an ILO instance that runs in parallel to a booted OS, or the kind that is an alternative to a normal boot/15:04
leftyfbILO is built into the server hardware, out of band from the OS15:04
jhutchinsleftyfb: Yes, but if it's running in the background of the OS, they can still be sharing hardware, and hence load sharing.15:10
lblumeleftyfb: I'm not in front of the server, so I don't know if it's the same being directly there. My guess is that it is.15:11
jhutchinsIt was a bad idea, I'm not sure you'd still find it alive in datacenters, but it was there.15:11
lblumejhutchins: The ILO has its own CPU and NIC, it's not sharing anything with the OS15:11
leftyfbjhutchins: BMC's run completely out of band of the OS. Separate from all of the hardware save for the network if it's shared.15:11
jhutchinsOne of the alternatives was OS native software that could access the ILO hardware & storage.15:11
leftyfbjhutchins: that's a client, not the ILO service running on their own hardware15:13
jhutchinsleftyfb: Duh.15:13
lblumeogra: I'll try to fetch more data and report there, thanks. At some point, the input got wholly stuck with a weird error message shown, I was in a hurry and did not screenshot, should have15:13
leftyfbjhutchins: with iDrac, it's a completely different card, basically it's own mini-computer plugged into the server15:13
leftyfblblume: a good test would be to turn off the server and use the ILO to move through the BIOS settings and see the response15:14
jhutchinsLet's see, if they're both running at the same time, they're sharing the same keyboard.15:15
jhutchinsWhat were we having possible conflicts with?  Oh yeah, keyboard input.15:16
lblumeleftyfb: Oh, the issue was only when running kernel 5.13, there's no issue in the BIOS or grub15:17
leftyfbjhutchins: the ILO console is out of band. As in, from a different computer over the network. The keyboard in this case is keyboard input from the remote computer, over the network, over the virtual console running within the completely out of band (mini-computer) having nothing to do with a keyboard plugged into the physical server15:18
lblumejhutchins: When starting the remote console, the ILO hardware connects a virtual USB keyboard to the server, which is detected and connected by the OS as any USB keyboard would be15:19
leftyfblblume: I would also see how a local keyboard performs on the tty15:20
lblumeI agree, I won't be able to check that for a few weeks though.15:22
lblumeI got the console hanged again, got the error this time:15:22
lblume[ 4085.792752] DMAR: DRHD: handling fault status reg 10215:22
lblume[ 4085.792819] DMAR: [INTR-REMAP] Request device [01:00.0] fault index 1e [fault reason 38] Blocked an interrupt request due to source-id verification failure15:22
leftyfblblume: https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/updated-to-ve-7-0-no-web-gui-dmar-errors-on-console.92022/15:25
jhutchinslblume: Did I miss the reason for switching kernels in the first place?15:25
leftyfblblume: looks like some people might have luck with "intel_iommu=on" as a kernel parameter15:26
leftyfblblume: and intremap=off"15:26
lblumeleftyfb: Hah, the web GUI bit threw me off on this15:28
lblumeleftyfb: Well, I confirm that does the trick, thanks! I should have read a bit more than the title on this page when I hit it, I was tired :)15:47
jhutchinsSo the kernel is interacting with the ILO after all.  Hmmm.15:50
lblumeNo, it really still isn't.15:52
lblumeIt's interacting with a virtual USB keyboard.15:53
jjakobthis is an apt-get question: why is dist-upgrade not upgrading a package that has a newer version and is not held (checked with apt-mark showhold)? https://termbin.com/f4v516:06
leftyfbjjakob: what if you just run: sudo apt install cciss-vol-status16:07
jjakobcciss-vol-status is already the newest version (1:1.10-1hwraid1).16:07
jjakobsources.list entry for it doesn't specify anything special like a priority either16:09
rfmjjakob, the installed package has epoch 1 and the abak.si one has epoch 0 (default).  epoch is the part before the colon, and trumps everything else16:17
jhutchinsjjakob: Do you have any third party/unofficial sources?16:20
imnogomenais this a channel where i can get help?16:23
jjakobrfm: and how can I change that16:24
imnogomenai'm trying to install ungoogled chromium and get the following message: https://paste.debian.net/1235139/16:25
jjakobjhutchins: I have my own go-apt-cacher (which is for the main ubuntu repos in sources.list) and then the hwraid.le-vert.net for those extra ones16:25
imnogomenai used Software and it installed Ungoogled Chromium flatpack but won't run from the start menu16:25
jjakoboh so it seems like the installed version with epoch 1 (which was installed in xenial from the hwraid.le-vert.net repo) is a higher version than the one from official ubuntu repo?16:27
jjakobbut that repo doesn't provide a 1.12 version for focal, but the installed version from xenial is still preventing the official repo version from installing16:28
jjakobso a uninstall and then install should probably work16:28
hansis ubuntu.com down for you guys? i just get 503 Service Unavailable No server is available to handle this request.16:28
jjakobor a install with the version specified16:29
leftyfbjjakob: sudo apt install cciss-vol-status=1.12-216:29
rfmjjakob, yes.  and I'd remove the le-vert.net repo from sources.list to keep it from coming back in the next upgrade...16:29

ogra(which we can not really support here)16:41
leftyfbioria: "you can enable the flatpak plugin, iirc"   what do you mean by this? flatpak's aren't available in ubuntu or AFAIK, any app you can install through ubuntu official repo's. They would have had to install the flatpak though other, non-official means16:41

Sven_vBhi :) I have an Ubuntu focal that has a high system load and reacts slowly to input, even though its CPUs are mostly idle, it has at least 200 MB free RAM, and iotop reports at most about 40 MB/s disk write, and about 15 MB/s disk read. what else should I check?21:35
sarnold200 megs "free" isn't necessarily good nor bad; it's probably more useful to look at the output of free -h or free -g as a whole, and also look at the output of 'vmstat 1' for a little while21:38
Sven_vBwill do, thanks!21:39
dubiousnessSven_vB: when you say 40MB/s what are we talking? Modern SSD or spinning ?21:39
Sven_vBoh I see, -g is just gigabytes and -h human. I had free -m; +/- caches there was even about 1 GB free.21:40
Sven_vBdubiousness, magnetic, about 10 years old21:40
Sven_vBand spinning yes21:40
Sven_vBjhutchins, I'll try and find that, thanks!21:41
jhutchinsSven_vB: You say it has a "high load", but your stats don't say that.21:41
dubiousnessSven_vB: USE, is this a recent thing? Has it been a gradual change? Can you clarify 'reacts slowly'?21:43
Sven_vBthe load numbers in htop say 6 to 8, and I only have 4 CPUs. iirc the load numbers should be at most the number of CPUs.21:43
sarnoldit depends what your system is doing21:45
sarnolda bunch of processes waiting for disk IO will show up in the load average21:45
sarnolda faster disk might help that21:45
dubiousnessyeah what sarnold said, can you stop the process doing 40MB/s and see if it magically stops?21:45
dubiousness40MB/s for a sub-par HDD is probably on the edge of clunky21:46
Sven_vBdubiousness, "reacts slowly" as in, typing a key into a local terminal with a local shell can suddenly take about 5 seconds for a character to appear. after half a minute or so, it goes back to nearly instant feedback, then soon it becomes slow again.21:46
dubiousnessAnd if the disk is very full you will start to see odd issues too.21:46
Sven_vBor switching to another window has the screen show an intermediate state for a few seconds21:46
sarnoldthat behaviour sounds a lot like a system that's swapping way too much on a disk that's far too slow21:47
Sven_vBI don't use a swap21:47
sarnoldfix that21:47
Sven_vBwhat benefit would I have from a swap, rather than more RAM? (or using less if you're saying I have too few free)21:49
dubiousnessI don't necessarily agree fully with sarnold, as there are valid use cases for disabling swap, but there are certain applications which behave... weirdly, if there's no swap (Xonotic springs to mind)21:50
dubiousnessAre you able to stop the heavy-write process Sven_vB?21:51
Sven_vBwhat kinds of "weirdly"?21:51
Sven_vBintuitively, writing RAM to a slow disk seems to only make stuff slowert21:51
Sven_vBdubiousness, I'll try and see which process is the heavy writer21:52
sarnoldSven_vB: having enough swap space for the kernel to push data that isn't used very often is a fantastic way to get more performance out of a machine that isn't powerful enough for the task at hand21:53
sarnoldSven_vB, you may find this useful https://chrisdown.name/2018/01/02/in-defence-of-swap.html21:53
Sven_vBsarnold, thanks!21:54
Sven_vBmeanwhile my random gut feeling it might have been apache, seems to have proven true. it didn't show up high in iotop, but maybe it had a gazillion low-intensity tasks. I stopped it earlier and now load is below 20%21:56
soloslingerWhat in gawd's holy name does it take to get python3 requests installed in an ubuntu container?!21:58
dubiousnessSven_vB: Apache is very tunable, I'd spend some time looking at sar and taking a quick look at B Greggs USE blog post if you haven't seen it yet21:59
Sven_vBsoloslinger, does it ship with install instructions?21:59
Sven_vBdubiousness, thanks, I'll have a look.21:59
Sven_vBdubiousness, the blog post about USE = Utilization Saturation and Errors?22:02
sarnoldSven_vB: yeah that's the one22:03
dubiousnessSven_vB: that's the one, sorry, I meant it was a good one for troubleshooting in general (not Apache specific)22:03
sarnoldeverything on his website is well worth reading :)22:03
betuxyhey guys, if  only some mount options are given, is the rest still on default?22:03
=== dionysus70 is now known as dionysus69
Sven_vBI see now, sarnold's point about not using swap probably is the one about the kernel having to flush file buffers more often in order to reclaim RAM.22:05
Sven_vBso if I want to stay with no swap, I should probably utilize less RAM in average then.22:06
sarnoldyeah, eg it might need to get rid of 'bash' in order to keep storing some graphics that your browser never cleaned up, etc22:06
Sven_vB(or put in more RAM total)22:06
dubiousnessThere's a lot to be said for setting up a small server, then picking something (like a web server) and twiddling it to see how far you can push it with limited resources. You'll learn a lot.22:06
Sven_vBthat phenomenon would easily explain why it happened to apache.22:06
sarnoldalso very helpful :)22:06
Sven_vBthe proper solution in my case would probably be to replace certain ancient CGIs with a proper event-based server instead.22:08
sarnoldhah that'd be a good step forward, indeed :)22:09
craigbass76I have a webcam plugged in. Is there any kind of command I can run to see what the resolution is?22:17
craigbass76lsusb isn't showing anything22:18
Sven_vBcraigbass76, I use guvcview for that22:18
jhutchinsSven_vB: There are some good web pages on tuning apache, and a couple of good tuner scripts that will give you a real head start.22:19
Sven_vBcraigbass76, for CLI, maybe fswebcam can help22:19
jhutchinsTip: Do not configure Apache to use 900% of your ram.22:19
craigbass76Sven_vB, guvcview... Is that just available via snap? I'm on ubuntustudio, but I think it's 18.04 (can't confirm though -- I forget uname -a doesn't tell you that)22:22
Sven_vBI think it's a regular traditional package22:22
Eickmeyer[m]craigbass76: lsb_release -a22:22
Sven_vBI might have it from a PPA though22:23
craigbass76Aha, it is 18.0422:23
Sven_vBcraigbass76, to check which Ubuntu you're on, lsb_release -a22:23
Eickmeyer[m]18.04 of Ubuntu Studio is LONG EOL.22:24
craigbass76Eickmeyer[m], I figured. This one just sits in the basement as a file server. I own a lumber yard now, so very rarely get to play music. I'm not a big fan of XFCE anymore anyway, so I'll probably reinstall sometime in the next few months and throw MATE on. I cut my teeth on GNOME2, and miss it.22:26
Eickmeyer[m]craigbass76: Last version of Ubuntu Studio to use xfce was 20.04, starting with 20.10 it moved to Plasma.22:27

craigbass76Eickmeyer[m], really... I'll have to stop over to their IRC and have a chat. Never seen plasma. This rig has an actual, pretty much straight out of the box, ubuntustudio install.22:30
Eickmeyer[m]craigbass76: I'm the leader of Ubuntu Studio, so don't worry about that. :)22:30
craigbass76Oh, I've probably yacked with you before then. I just don't get to play much these days.22:32
Eickmeyer[m]I get that. I don't get to mix much these days. Either way, let's try to stay on-topic in this support channel. :22:32
dobbicorpwhich irc chan about squid caching proxy?23:08
dobbicorp#squid doesn't seem to be a correct place23:09
ubottuAlis is an IRC service to help you find channels. For help on using it, see «/msg Alis help list» or ask in #libera - Example usage: «/msg Alis list http»23:09
dobbicorptomreyn: Returning maximum of 64 channel names matching '*squid*'    but it doesn't show any23:10
tomreynthen there will be none. do you have an ubuntu support question?23:11
=== Dwiv is now known as Authentix
dobbicorptomreyn: yes, how do i reconfigure squid package that way so that it supports socks523:24
dobbicorp"No changes are necessary to use Squid with socks5. Simply add the usual -Dbind=SOCKSbind etc., to the compile line and -lsocks to the link line. https://docstore.mik.ua/squid/FAQ-4.html"23:24
dobbicorpis it possible to do so without manualy compiling squid under ubuntu?23:25
tomreyni would not know, but if the document you fund there is current and reliable then this suggests that it's not possible.23:26
tomreyn(without recompiling, relinking, unless these options are used when the ubuntu packages are built - my guess is they are not)23:27
sarnoldI don't spot any 'socks' in there23:28
junebugNew linux version and wifi is not fixed on hp laptops. It's been a few months now23:33
tomreynhi junebug, do you have an ubuntu support question?23:33
junebugYes how do I fix the wifi. Last version that works is linux 5.11.0-46-generic23:34
tomreynwhich ubuntu release are you running there? which wireless chipset?23:35
junebugHow do I check this?23:35
tomreynlsb_release -ds23:35
tomreynlspci -knn | grep -EA3 '(Network|Ethernet) controller' | nc termbin.com 999923:35
junebugUbuntu 20.04.4 LTS23:36
junebugI'm currently on 5.11.9-4623:37
tomreyn20.04.4 has linux-image-generic-hwe-20.04 version
tomreyntry to bring it online by other means and install the pending upgrades23:39
junebugtomreyn, when you say install pending upgrades what do you mean?23:39
tomreynsudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade23:39
junebugSure. Let me try that23:39
dobbicorphow do i stop squid and make it not autostart after reboot?23:43
dobbicorpwell, i know how to stop ...23:43
dobbicorphow to make it not autostart23:43
dobbicorpupon reboot23:43
tomreynwhich ubuntu release are you running?23:44
tomreynprobably systemctl mask squid23:45
tomreynactually just disable, not mask23:45
junebugI tried the update and full upgrade tomreyn but still no wifi23:46
dobbicorptomreyn: thank you, systemctl disable squid seem to be worked23:46
tomreynjunebug: did you reboot? what's your kernel version now?23:47
junebugYes I rebooted23:47
tomreyncat /proc/version23:47
tomreynso that seems current. now you'll need to inspect your system log to understand what's not working about the intel wireless23:48
junebugHow do I do that?23:49
tomreynjournalctl -b23:49
tomreynlook for iwlwifi, that's the name of the intel wireless driver23:49
tomreynit defaults to 'less' as a viewer, where you can search for text by pressing /23:50
WaVDoes Ubuntu typically support newer hardware? Thinking of getting the Intel Raptor Lake when it comes out, and Ubuntu is my preferred Linux distro.23:50
tomreynjunebug: i'll head to bed now, but keep asking your questions here - good luck.23:51
