Sven_vBon some of my focal machones, /etc/resolv.conf points to ../run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf. shouldn't it point to ../run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf instead? because that one has my DNS IPs in it. do I need to fix that manually on all affected machines? is it a one-time fix or will it happen on new installs, too?04:13
Sven_vBoh. I see. now DNS works, before I even fixed anything. so I guess the failure earlier was something else.04:21
Sven_vBand my old "list all DNS servers" script fails because it only checks NetworkManager connections, whereas the purpose of my new config is to have DNS be independent from which connection I use. can I still query NM for the DNS IPs, should I just grep them from /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf, or is there an even better way?04:23

Wamphyrilets say i want to mount \\\alan\     using one set of credentials that would be different compared to \\\andrew\ , so each folder would need its own username / password. can samba do that? if so whats it called and where is the faq? lol10:33
MathisenWamphyri, just create more users and add the share for that user10:34
Wamphyriand have is so each user can't see the other users folder?10:34

cubic10I've got a support question :)11:20
cubic10I am booting into Ubuntu on a Pi4, which is located on an SSD on the usb 3 port. 90% of the time, everything loads properly on boot. But occasionally, there is some error with the USB ports getting addressed properly, and the file system never loads. So eventually the busybox shell comes up. First, I am confused about exactly what is going on here,11:20
cubic10because the boot loader recognized the USB ports, and it seems at least some things loaded from the SSD. Because busy box loaded, and this is part of the Ubuntu side of things, right? But then something went wrong and the file system was unable to finish loading?11:20
cubic10My question is: Is there a way to have it reboot automatically from the busy box shell?11:20
MathisenWamphyri, try to mount it in terminal as a test to whatever folder11:20
MathisenWamphyri, sudo mount -t cifs // ~/folder_to_mount_to -o user=foobar11:20
WamphyriMathisen, mount: /srvs: bad option; for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program.11:23
MathisenWamphyri, install cifs-utils11:26
Wamphyriit assked me for a password11:27
Wamphyrientered it in and thats it lol11:27
Mathisenthen the share works11:27
Wamphyriyup but i can't access it via a windows machine11:28
Wamphyriwhich is a must11:28
Mathisenwell that should be the same thing11:29
Mathisenthere is no logic for it not to work on a window machine11:29
Mathisenonly thing that would prevent it is using smb1 and that you are not doing11:29
Wamphyrithe windows machine is on a domain11:29
Wamphyrithe linux machine is not attached to the domain11:29
Mathisenwell can the windows machine ping the ip ?11:30
Wamphyriwhen i try and connect to the linux machine is always comes up with my domain name11:30
Wamphyrii can ssh, ftp, etc to it11:30
Mathisenis this your domain ?11:30
Mathisenset up a login script for the user in the GPO settings on the domain controller11:31
Wamphyrithe company i work for lol11:32
Wamphyrilets just say its a shit show11:32
Mathisenheh ok.. well ask the domain admin then11:32
Wamphyrii can have the samba server bind to the domain, but i prefer not to11:32
Mathisenit is not ment that regular users start mounting random things11:32
Mathisenthat is kinda obvious11:32
Wamphyriright, only 8 users need access to this11:32
Wamphyrii think that mount just broke my system11:33
Mathisenjust unmount it11:33
Mathisensudo umount /mount/point11:33

ubottucubic10: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or https://ubuntuforums.org or https://askubuntu.com/11:47
cubic10When the filesystem fails to properly load, and the busy box shell comes up, is there anyway to make the system automatically reboot? Like, is there a way to have busy box run crontab?11:48
ChunkyzYou're probably using too much power from the USB3 ports on your RPI...11:49
cubic10Yes, that probably is the underlying issue. But it works 9 out of 10 times. So if there was a way to have it automatically reboot from busy box, it would resolve 90% of the time on the first reboot :)11:50
cubic10No way to make it auto reboot?11:51
ChunkyzNope, fix your USB3 power hogging.11:51
cubic10The interesting thing is the bootloader is doing just fine11:55
Wamphyricubic10, think of busy box as safe mode, if you need it to do something beyond its intentions you'll need to grab the source, and program it in then re-create the iso to support that busy box.. (i think thats about right)11:55
WamphyriMathisen, should i add samba to the domain?11:56

Wamphyricubic10, its not designed like that, once kernel hits a panic it goes busy box12:03
cubic10okay. thanks12:03
cubic10btw, I'm not sure I would describe my situation as a panic, because it actually tries for about 5 minutes to find the file system, and then it says "I give up" -> busy box12:06

oerheksinstalling a kernel can take some time.. how do you do that, btw?15:12
Payam49oerheks to me?15:12
oerheksPayam49, yes, as one does not install a kernel manually, it comes through updates15:13
Payam49Now I could solve the error15:16

Payam49it was the same error as before. it stops at update-initramfs15:17

Payam49nothing works at all15:18
enigma9o7[m]http://localhost:631 has some printer info15:40
armadefuego@Payam49 git does not require initramfs. that is _usually_ triggered by a kernel-ish update. You must have a pending update that did not complete. Maybe the people that said you can not upgrade the distro might know why?15:55
armadefuegoone possibility is to download the git package and install it directly.16:00
oerheksarmadefuego, interesting, as 201 not upgraded16:02
oerhekshe created an impossible situation16:02
armadefuegoIf you look at the screenshot you see that git is _already_ at the latest update.16:04
armadefuegoThe problem is that a previous update (updated kernel?) did not complete.16:04
armadefuegoAnd there is something that is not allowing the initramfs to complete. That is where the apt is hanging. the computer may not be fully frozen, or it might be.16:08
armadefuegoInitramfs may be hitting some operation that is not working on the hardware.16:08
armadefuegofor example a hardware lock on sector 0 writes could freeze a computer.16:11
armadefuego( the numlock test is to check if the computer is servicing interrupts. It is possible that it is servicing a higher level interrupt.16:13

carnophage2followed several guides online16:57
carnophage2is there something to be done?16:57
nunyaexcuse all the typos pleae16:57
nunyamy keyboard and my typing sucks16:57
leftyfbnunya: you have to reinstall whatever package you removed that those packages depend on16:58
leftyfbcarnophage2: compiz is no longer installed by default and I'm pretty sure not supported. What version of ubuntu are you running?16:58
jhutchinscarnophage2: You'd probably start with examining your hardware, your system loads outside the VM, the VM software, the hardware and software virtualized to the VM, and other factors.  Ubuntu on a random VM is not enough to diagnose.16:58
rollappuserwhats up16:59
rollappuserhow are you16:59
rollappuserthis is16:59
rfmcarnophage2, do you have the vbox 3d support enabled (must install guest additions, enable it in vm settings)16:59
nunyaleftyfb: That would be Cinnamon Desktop Environment and I don't want Cinnamon any more16:59
leftyfbrollappuser: welcome to the ubuntu support channel. If you have an issue, please give as much detail as possible. If you just want to chat, try #ubuntu-offtopic17:00
rollappuseri have a free version of rollapp17:00
rollappuserthats all17:00
rfmcarnophage2, I found I was happier with the xfce desktop (Xubuntu) in a VM than gnome17:01
carnophage2i have guest additions and also vbox 3d enabled17:01
leftyfbnunya: sudo apt install gnome-shell-common17:01
carnophage2how do i install this?17:01
carnophage2i'll google it.17:01
leftyfbcarnophage2: please share the version of ubuntu you are running:    ( cat /etc/os-release ; uname -a ) | nc termbin.com 999917:02
leftyfbnunya: or:   sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-shell gnome-shell-common17:02
rfmcarnophage2, apt install xubuntu-desktop should do it, although I think that leaves you with gdm instead of xubuntu normal lightdm.  installing anew from the xubuntu would result in a more normal config17:04
nunyaleftyfb: gnome-shell-common is already the newest version (3.36.9-0ubuntu0.20.04.2).17:05
nunyagnome-shell-common set to manually installed. Then a long list of stuff I can autoremove. See pastebin https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/6kqpSs7rS7/17:05
carnophage220.04.4 LTS17:05
nunyaleftyfb: hexchat is among them. I am currently using hexchat to communicate with you17:07
leftyfbcarnophage2: I was also looking for the kernel, which is why I requested the full output17:09
carnophage2kernel is latest version available.17:10
leftyfbcarnophage2: please post the output of  ( cat /etc/os-release ; uname -a ) | nc termbin.com 999917:11
nunyaleftyfb: I tried  sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-shell gnome-shell-common Then sudo apt update. I then just tried sudo apt install nano just tos ee if all the autoremove stuff still popped up. It did.17:11
oerheksa slow VM could be a slow host issue17:12
leftyfbnunya: at this point, it's probably just easier to "install" the packages from that list you know you still need/want17:12
nunyaIs the autoremove list editable? I just want it empty so nothing is accidentally uninstalled forcing me to have to reinstall my system.17:13
nunyaleftyfb:I don't know which ones I need or want and there are so many17:14
carnophage2output "https://termbbin.com/vbpc"17:14
leftyfbcarnophage2: tried installing the virtualbox extension pack17:15
nunyaleftyb: I guess I could just be careful and ignore the autoremove list in terminal and Synaptic17:16
carnophage2lefty, i'll look into it right away17:16
leftyfbnunya: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/J3xSG7xtnH/17:17
carnophage2extension pack was previously installed17:20
nunyaleftyfb: Ok, so install everything in the autoremove list. Clever if it works!17:20
leftyfbnunya: I left out the libraries. Some of those should get removed from the list after installing the other packages. The rest can probably be removed17:20
nunyaleftyfb: If any of the libraries are need apps will complain then I can reinstalll them right?17:22
nunyaleftyfb: Thanks17:22
nunyaleftyfb: Thanks that reduced autoremove list to 2 libbudgie-plugin0 libfwupdplugin1 I will check in Synaptic to make sure these are available if needed again. Then I will uninstall them.17:26
leftyfbnunya: you probably want libfwupdplugin1. The other can go17:28
nunyaleftyfb: I will try the install again trick and see if that clears them fro the autoremove list17:29
nunyaleftyfb: That worked! Thanks for your help! I'm going to put this in my computer support file.17:32
carnophage2i installed wine17:40
carnophage2and then some programs17:40
carnophage2removed wine17:40
carnophage2but the programs still show on my applications list on ubuntu, the windows ones17:40
carnophage2is there any way to remove them?  Could anyone show me the way?17:41
nunyaleftyfb: Yeah I don't even have budgie. I was trying a clock applet for budgie just to see if it works on Ubuntu. It doesn't. I found dclock but it's kind of ugly. It works though.17:42
knightwisemoved up to the ubuntu beta today17:44
knightwise22.04 looks good17:44

* knightwise loves me some jellyfish17:45
nunyaleftyfb: One more question. I've been Googling but having a hard time finding: How do I get an application wind to open on right side or the screen? Just this one app though not all.17:45
nunyaleftyfb: Ubuntu 20.04 if that matters17:46
jhutchinsnunya: That's usually something you can feed to the application on the startup command, either as a part of a shortcut/icon, a menu item, or just from the Alt-F2 launcher (best to test it here first).17:52
jhutchinsnunya: Look at the docs for the application and see what it offers.17:52
nunyajhutchins: thanks I 'll check dclock --help17:53
jhutchinsnunya: Yeah, dclock should have position/geometery parameters.  Pretty sure xclock does.17:54
nunyajhutchins: nothing in dcloc --help about placement. I will try xclock. Unfortunately xclock -digital is not resizeable the window is but the time isn't.17:57
nunyaI need a big digital clock on my desktop so I can see it from my bed across the room from my computer.17:58
jhutchinsYou might check for a manpage or /usr/share/doc18:02
jhutchinsInternal help files for X applications are pretty sparse and unimplemented.18:02
=== MiguelX4139 is now known as MiguelX413
nunyajhutchins: found -gemoetry for dclock in man page but not help. Figure out geomerty with xwininfo -id $(xprop -root | grep "_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW(WINDOW)" | grep -Eo "0x[0-9a-f]{2,}") Then just palyed with X and Y cordinates until I liked the placement. Thanks for your help. The direction to man page led me to the answer.18:23
kinghathow does the docker snap update? will it restart containers at unwanted times?19:10
oerhekskinghat, a good read; see "refresh-mode: endure "  https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/docker-snap-what-happens-when-snap-is-updated/2029119:16

Chunkyzmy HDD is still disconnecting and I looked at dmesg: https://paste.debian.net/1235511/ any ideas what's going wrong?21:22
tomreynuse sg_ses to find out more about the disk(s) in this scsi enclosure21:24
Chunkyzit's a WD USB3 external HDD, it's not an scsi enclosure21:25
tomreynBASHitup: how so?21:26
BASHitupI'm kidding. No, I'm sort of being facetious.21:26
Chunkyztomreyn: https://paste.debian.net/1235512/21:26
BASHitupI'd say if it involves any sys process and interacts with the kernel, it's fine.21:27
BASHitupYes ... even then, the Ubuntu polic will come. And when they do you get ... WHACK BOOM BANG ... INSTANT-MEGABAN21:27
Chunkyztomreyn: deal with this troll please.21:27
tomreynBASHitup: this might happen if you keep chatting like this here.21:27
Chunkyztomreyn: any ideas? I'm clueless21:28
BASHitupSince when is dissent equated with trolling?21:28
tomreynChunkyz: which hardware is this?21:28
tomreynBASHitup: please stay on topic, ubuntu support21:28
Chunkyztomreyn: WD portable USB3 HDD.21:28
BASHitup"please stay on topic ..." disrupts the Ubuntu topic workflow. Yellow card.21:29
tomreynChunkyz: canyou be more specific?21:29
Chunkyztomreyn: sec let me get the link21:29
BASHitupThat's like 45 seconds without Nix talk.21:29
oerheksBASHitup, that is not helpfull at all.21:30
BASHitupYeah ... so I will help and not make wisecracks. Yet, everyone will quickly see that every clause is parsed and may or may not be rejected based on topic rules - arbitrarily conceived. What is the sys proc invoked by this drive issue?21:30
Chunkyztomreyn: it's this https://www.westerndigital.com/en-gb/products/portable-drives/wd-my-passport-usb-3-0-hdd-recertified#RWDBYFT0020BBK-WESN21:31
BASHitupcan you see the HDD using lsusb?21:31
ChunkyzBus 002 Device 013: ID 1058:25e1 Western Digital Technologies, Inc. My Passport 25E121:32
BASHitupK, so it reads. That's something21:32
oerheksrun a fsck https://askubuntu.com/questions/1098436/wd-my-passport-usb-drive-not-recognized21:32
BASHitupThen you can see what it looks like in <ls /dev>21:32
Chunkyzit'll disconnect again21:32
Chunkyzoerheks: it's reconized though, just keeps unmounting21:32
BASHitupYou switched ports to make sure it's not a port issue - rather than an Ubuntu issue?21:32
BASHitupAnd, honestly, given that the USB functions on a lower level than the OS ... I mean, this is not really an Ubuntu thing. Which makes me sound like a hypocrite for sure21:33
BASHitupThe USB process should be conistent based on the kernel version or the drivers which pertain to the kernel - not the OS itself.21:33
sarnoldI can't imagine running ses on a usb disk is very useful21:33
oerhekswd passport, i read a lot of issues, mostly solved with fsck, but if it keeps disconnecting.. power issue?21:34
Chunkyzahh think reparing worked. I wondered why windows 10 wouldn't see it, even though it's ntfs. thanks oerheks :-)21:35
oerheksmaybe usb3 ( blue)  or usb2 makes a difference21:35
ChunkyzI'll see if it carries on disconnecting.21:36
leftyfbChunkyz: the mybooks go to sleep on their own21:36
leftyfbChunkyz: https://askubuntu.com/questions/891173/disable-spinning-down-of-hdd-in-16-0421:36
Chunkyzleftyfb: it's not a mybook but thanks.21:36
leftyfbsame with the passports21:37
Chunkyzthe repair seems to have worked :-)21:40
oerheksChunkyz, in gnome disks, one could set Drive settings > standby > never ..21:41
Chunkyzoerheks: it's greyed out :-921:42
oerheksbut for external i do not think that sticks21:42
philipp64is it a known issue that pastebinit doesn't actually work with -b pastebin.com ?22:25

oerheksor the captcha..22:35
Unit193philipp64: If you actually care, that's pretty easy to fix.22:51
philipp64great. how?22:51
codezguys any idea how to set cpu scaling off on ubuntu for a i9900k?22:52
ubottuFor posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use https://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use https://imgur.com/ !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.22:52
Unit193Copy /usr/share/pastebin.d/pastebin.com.conf to /etc/pastebin.d/pastebin.com.conf, change the regex to: regexp = https?://((([a-zA-Z0-9\-_\.]*)(pastebin\.com)))   and right below that line add 'https = True'22:52
jhutchinsphilipp64: There are many reasons to avoid pastebin.  Among others, it's blocked by a lot of networks because has spread malware.  Just don't.22:53
oerhekswhy messing with cpu scaling? oke you can ..22:54
philipp64doesn't paste.ubuntu.com require credentials?22:55
codezoerheks ty ty22:55
Unit193philipp64: Yeah it has annoying login requirements.22:56
jhutchinsHm, that's new to me.  There are others.22:58
jhutchinsphilipp64: http://paste.debian.net is still open.23:00
oerheksMaybe that is why termbin.com is populair23:00
jhutchinsLet's find the things that make Ubuntu broadly popular and accessible and break them.23:01
Aarch64debianubuntu is bad, baduntu23:23
sarnoldjhutchins: IS folks were spending hours each day dealing with horrible things on the pastebin :(23:25
Unit193sarnold: Understandable, but then I'm going to go to a pastebin that doesn't have such requirements, and advocate against its use too.  Perhaps it's best to push that responsibility elsewhere?23:26
sarnoldUnit193: aye, I've switched to termbin.com too, it's so much easier to use23:27
Aarch64debianwhat never end drums23:27
sarnoldthe debian pastebin is nice if I want something a bit 'webbier' to work with23:27
oerhekssarnold, maybe opening an account passes through23:27
sarnoldoerheks: I spent five or ten minutes trying to configure pastebinit to do account things but it was way more annoying than just switching pastebins23:28
