jim_hitekI seem to be in the wrong chat room?00:33
gryjim_hitek: how did you install strongvpn?00:34
jim_hitekLemme think...not sure there's any install to do actually, I'll have to go look, I've had it for years.00:35
jim_hitekOh, it's an interface thing in the Networking setup in the VPN section. I set it up there using the strings that I find on my acct pages at the URL strongvpn.com00:37
grySo it is a setting. What is the workaround?00:38
jim_hitekI've had a Strong VPN tech working on this for nearly a week and he walked me thru some stuff which didn't work. He eventually turned it over to there engineering deptment. I'm just checking if there's another router to a fix.00:38
jim_hitekThe work around is a wget called up in TERM. Do you need a copy of the whole URL that follows wget? Would that be a security thing for me or strong? (I have no idea).00:39
gryI would suggest to ask them about whether it is ok to share the wget workaround with an online chat forum, and then come back here00:40
androirc99did anyone here get compiz and emerald working, im using the LTS version00:40
androirc99and it just makes the borders disappear00:40
=== mkv is now known as m4v
jim_hitekOkay. Thx gry.00:41
jim_hitekStrongVPN says this about the workaround: It would be sharing your configuration with a public forum.01:13
jim_hitekAs long as you don't share your username and password, I think it is fine.01:13
jim_hitekSo I'll post it here, sans usr & pswd: wget https://wg.strongvpn.com/assets/files/strong-wg.sh && chmod +x strong-wg.sh; sudo ./strong-wg.sh01:13
jim_hitek@gry...see above.01:19

haois there tools to find duplicated files according to similarity of file names instead of by hashing/sum?02:40
sarnoldhao: interesting question; the first thing that comes to mind: find . -printf "%f %P\n"  | sort02:44
haowhat does %P print? the manual is a bit vague, what's "found removed"?02:47
haoalso reading this: https://rclone.org/commands/rclone_dedupe/02:47
haoI'll do some experiments02:47
sarnoldhao: hah, %p vs %P doesn't make much difference with a starting point .  ...02:48
haosarnold, thanks, this trick works, but I kinda hoping can find a tool that filter out the duplicates so I can decide what to do (interactively or not), not a shell wizard, so... still digging02:56
sarnoldhao: ah, yeah.. turning this into a tool might be a fair amount of work02:57
sarnoldif you wanted *exact* matches, that might not be hard02:57
sarnoldbut similar is difficult :)02:57
haoin the end, I might just use a tools that do hash comparison...03:00
sarnoldhah, this isn't quite what I was expecting, but it seems to work okay for identical filenames03:04

Bashing-omchonkin: Let's make sure our ducks are in a row - show us ' dpkg -l | grep linux- '.05:19
Bashing-omchonkin: Let's try this - re-install that last kernel, as it should still be in the repo.05:38
chonkinjust to be clear,  which exact number should I re-install?05:39
Bashing-omchonkin: sudo apt install linux-headers-5.15.0-57-generic linux-hwe-5.15-headers-5.15.0-57 // the rest fillows if these install/05:40
chonkinmy uname -a  gives05:41
chonkin5.15.0-58-generic #64~20.04.1-Ubuntu05:42
Bashing-omchonkin: But the nvidia driver is looking for the -57 kernel version. And you do want to keep that next to current kernel (-57) on the system, yes ?05:43
chonkinno, I can destroy any of those at will05:44
Bashing-omchonkin: And you now see the consewunces of such an action - no longer able to boot :D05:45
chonkinafter I install that kernel,  I should still boot to the .0-58 , ?05:45
Bashing-omconsequences* I am so tired I have troule typing !05:45
Bashing-omchonkin: yeah -- will still boot that latest - we still have the images for -57 to install after the headers are installed.05:46
chonkinshould I "get" this kernel while in recovery mode, or just do it in a terminal in gnome?05:50
Bashing-omchonkin: does not matter - as soon as we are all done with install --reinstall of the image files you will reboot and we see what remains to be done.05:52
Bashing-omchonkin: Once all installed and rebooted - we will then Rebuild all modules for the currently running kernel.05:54
chonkinokay im back to the terminal06:02
Bashing-omchonkin: the header files installed ?06:03
Bashing-omchonkin: then do ' sudo apt install --reinstall linux-image-5.15.0-57-generic linux-modules-5.15.0-57-generic linux-modules-extra-5.15.0-57-generic // reboot to see what we now have.06:04

Bashing-omchonkin: Booted normally - and all seems good ?06:15
chonkinfrozen at boot06:18
chonkinthe blinking cursor is frozen06:18
Bashing-omchonkin: Yukkie - OK - verify the booted kernel - ' uname -r - and if the 58 kernel then run ' dkms autoinstall ' .06:19
chonkinhmmm.. it appears to me that you want to go down the rabbithole of rebuilding something from source here06:25
chonkindkms autoinstall06:27
chonkinit comes back with no output06:27
Bashing-omchonkin: I expext that in the rebuild the Nvidia driver will switch from the old -57 kernel to the -58 version that you are booting.06:27
Bashing-omchonkin: Generally "no output" is success -- what shows now ' dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia ' for the kernel version that the driver sees ?06:30
chonkinuhhh  let me just pastebin that. I see two duplicates that are worrying06:32
Bashing-omI see "rc  linux-objects-nvidia-515-5.15.0-57-generic" and no -58 - now that is a bother ! what issue do you see ?06:36
chonkinthere is a duplicate linux-objects----   one for 0-46 and another for 0-5706:37
Bashing-omchonkin: There should be a objects line for each installed kernel version - // we do not see the -58 version ! /// want to try and re-install the nvidia driver // see what haps ?06:40
chonkinThis would be a reinstall of -515?  or  -525?06:43
Bashing-omchonkin: I fully expect that the kernel will choose to install the 525 verion, autoinstall :D06:44
chonkin-525  depends xserver-xorg-video-etc-etc-525    which is never released on 20.04 focal06:51
chonkin-525  depends  nvidia-compute-utils-525    which is never released on 20.04 focal06:53

shinobiI created an ubuntu 22.04 thumbdrive with Rufus, but only set it up for EFI. I now want to use it on a legacy BIOS system. Is there a way to rewrite the MBR and point it to a legacy version of GRUB on the same thumbdrive?15:43
cartdrigerewrite it with MBR or another one.15:58
cartdrigewill be faster and failproof.15:59

PeGaSuShello guys. just updated a VPS to Ubuntu 22.0 and I'm facing this issue: https://0bin.xyz/view/7c0886b917:48
gryPeGaSuS: can you try again? maybe the failure in name resolution was an intermittent issue?17:51
gryPeGaSuS: what is the output of 'host download.webmin.com' in a command line terminal?17:52
PeGaSuSgry: the issue remains. all "host <host>" fails with: Host download.webmin.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)17:56
ducassethose are temporary dns failures PeGaSuS - just try again later17:56
PeGaSuScan't be.. worked just before the upgrade17:56
PeGaSuSlemme check something..17:57
jhutchinsPeGaSuS: To be clear, does it always return the webmin name, or is that just the name of the host you were looking up?17:57
jhutchins! webmin17:58
ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.17:58
PeGaSuSjhutchins: that's host I was looking up. fails with nl.archive.ubuntu.com too17:58
jhutchinsPeGaSuS: How about just archive.ubuntu.com?17:58
PeGaSuSsame error: Host archive.ubuntu.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)17:59
PeGaSuSmy resolv.conf doesn't seem okay: nameserver
PeGaSuSprobably the issue comes from there?17:59
jhutchinsPeGaSuS: Are you actually running webmin?18:00
PeGaSuSwebmin is a disabled systemd unit (or should be)18:01
jhutchinsPeGaSuS: I haven't seen .53 used for a local host.  :53 is the port for DNS.18:01
PeGaSuSI just use webmin to manage mysql/postgresql databases.. not the system18:01
jhutchinsPeGaSuS: phpmyadmin would be a much better choice.  There's every likelyhood that webmin is messing with your DNS.18:02
PeGaSuSI have webmin on a 22.04 VPS and never hadd issues. and it was active during upgrade18:02
PeGaSuSnever used phpmyadmin. I can try it later on18:03
PeGaSuSchanging to `nameserver` seems to solve the issue18:04

=== eater is now known as eater_0
eater_0Hi, I used dd to copy a half-full 1TB drive to a 500G drive. But how can I fix the partition table for the 500G drive, which thinks it is too small?19:03
arrayboltXEeater_0: I don't think you can do that. ext4 doesn't necessarily always save your files at the beginning of the drive's empty space.19:04
arrayboltXEMeaning you could have a lot of missing data doing this.19:04
arrayboltXEeater_0: Probably the best way to do what you're trying to do would be to format the 500G drive so that it matches the 1 TB drive in partition layout, then use rsync to clone each filesystem to the new drive.19:05
eater_0arrayboltXE: the active partition on the 1TB drive was 510G, so hopefully not too much lost? anyway this is a rescue attempt, because the 1TB drive is gone, so any surviving data is welcome19:05
arrayboltXEYou don't have the 1 TB drive on you at all anymroe?19:06
eater_0i have the physical drive but it's kind of unreadable19:06
arrayboltXEBut if the active partition was small enough to fit, then you may be able t orecover it.19:06
arrayboltXEThe first thing I would do would be, if at all possible, get a second drive and clone to it also. That way if you mess something up, you can try again.19:06
eater_0yes, that's what i'd like to do19:06
arrayboltXEOnce you have a second backup copy (if possible), then I'd try using TestDisk to recover the whole partition.19:07
arrayboltXEYou might also end up needing to repair it, depending on how much data was lost off the end of the drive.19:08
arrayboltXEThis is *very dangerous*, so it's really recommended that you make that backup copy.19:08
eater_0yeah, I have backed it up19:08
eater_0I did run testdisk to write a new partition table but I am still left with that error message19:08
eater_0"WARNING: Device /dev/sdb2 has size of 975720448 sectors which is smaller than corresponding PV size of 1071560704 sectors. Was device resized?"19:09
arrayboltXEHmm. What happens if you open the drive with parted?19:10
arrayboltXEIt *might* be able to shrink the size of the GPT... whatever-you-call-it (it's not a partition, but it holds the whole drive, I believe)19:11
arrayboltXELemme try some tests with an image file.19:11
eater_0thanks! parted sees a 500GB partition with lvm2 flag19:12
arrayboltXEThis might take me a bit.19:12
eater_0Take your time! i appreciate it19:13
ducassecan you see the partitions?19:13
eater_0@ducasse: yes19:14
ducasse did you try mounting it?19:14
eater_0mount says "unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'"19:15
arrayboltXEOh tar, so you have LVM involved in this too.19:16
arrayboltXEOK, I'll take that into account.19:16
eater_0yeah, I haven't dealt with LVM before and it seems to be annoying19:16
arrayboltXESo, to be clear, you originally had an LVM volume spanning the entire 1 TB drive, and inside it, a ~500GB ext4 filesystem?19:17
eater_0Yes I believe that is the case. it was 500GB ext4, 500gb unallocated19:19
=== beaver is now known as i`see`u`baby
arrayboltXEOK. Dunno how much that will interfere or not, lemme find out.19:19
arrayboltXEeater_0: Alright, I finally have a somewhat similar setup in an image file (LVM is a pain). Now I'm going to truncate it and see if the partition is recoverable.19:30
eater_0thank you...19:31
arrayboltXEHey looks like I got it!19:38
arrayboltXEeater_0: So because of the truncated LVM, you probably can't get it back, however you can probably recover the ext4 partition inside (or at least try to get data out.)19:39
eater_0ok, how do I recover the ext4 partition?19:39
arrayboltXEOne moment while I get good directions. I don't think the partition can be recovered, but you can probably copy the files out of it and onto a good disk.19:40
arrayboltXEeater_0: Alright, so what disk is the damaged one?19:40
arrayboltXEIf that's right, do "sudo testdisk /dev/sdb".19:41
arrayboltXEAlright, make sure /dev/sdb is selected, then select Proceed.19:42
arrayboltXEPartition table type is *probably* EFI GPT, but it might be Intel.19:42
arrayboltXEI'd use whatever kind it autodetects.19:42
eater_0yes, EFI GPT19:42
arrayboltXEAlright, now Analyse, then Quick Search.19:43
arrayboltXE(This won't find it right off the bat, but it will get us closer.)19:43
eater_0and testdisk detects two partitions, EFI System and Linux LVM19:43
arrayboltXEOK, select the Linux LVM.19:43
arrayboltXE(Yes, it may be listed as "can't be recovered", that's normal.)19:43
eater_0it's selected, it doesn't say it can't be recovered19:44
arrayboltXEeater_0: Nice, select it, then select the "Linux filesys. data" entry.19:44
arrayboltXENext, "Deeper Search".19:44
arrayboltXEThis may take a while depending on the speed of the disk.19:44
eater_0I do not see a Linux filesys data entry but I do see Deeper Search19:45
arrayboltXEeater_0: Once the deeper search completes, you will have probably a few "Linux filesys. data" entries.19:45
arrayboltXEOK, then do the deeper search.19:45
eater_0lots of results and errors here19:45
eater_0MS Data, Linux filesys data, BeFS!19:46
arrayboltXEeater_0: It might take a while, eventually you want to get to a screen where it has "P: list files".19:46
arrayboltXEOnce you get to that point, select each individual detected partition, and press P. One of them should open up and show you your files.19:46
eater_0all right, will do. it is 1% through the deeper search19:47
arrayboltXE(BeFS? Wow. lol, wonder if it's finding pieces of VM images or something? Did you ever have a Haiku VM?)19:47
eater_0nope! i think it is just trying to make sense of what it finds19:48
eater_0"Warning: number of heads/cylinder mismatches 16 (NTFS) != 255 (HD)"19:48
arrayboltXEMakes sense.19:48
arrayboltXEYeah, it might scream at you about some of this stuff, but as long as it can find your data, that's all we care about.19:49
arrayboltXE(My testcase got it to throw a fairly good fit when it came do my disk size.)19:49
eater_0arrayboltXE: all right, the Deeper Search finished and now it shows a list of many many Linux filesys data partitions, each one 1069547520 sectors large20:30
eater_0arrayboltXE: none of the "Linux filesys. data" partitions have an option to P: list files, but I see that option on a few other partitions where the type is MS Data or EFI System20:37

sarnolddid you need to login again to make it work? or did it go right away?23:21

eater_0oh @arrayboltXE you're still here. did you happen to have any more thoughts about my LVM situation if testdisk isn't doing it?23:30
arrayboltXEeater_0: o/23:31
arrayboltXEOK so you weren't able to see any Linux filesystems looking around?23:32
arrayboltXEWhat does your screen look like now?23:32
eater_0there were a thousand of them but it wouldn't let me list their files23:32
eater_0i exited testdisk23:32
arrayboltXEDid it ever have a "p: List files" thing at the bottom of the screen?23:32
arrayboltXEAnd when you did that, did it just keep saying that the filesystem was damaged?23:33
eater_0it showed P: list files" for various "MS Data" partitions that it seemed to detect (i never had any ms data on that drive) but the Linux filesystems did not offer the P option23:33
eater_0And it never said anything was damaged23:33
arrayboltXECrud. Then there's only one last desperate attempt I can think of, and it's very messy and almost certainly won't recover everything. Still, it might get some critical files back.23:34
arrayboltXEWhen you install TestDisk, it also comes with a tool called PhotoRec.23:34
eater_0ugh, yes I know Photorec23:34
arrayboltXEYep. That's the last resort I can think of.23:34
arrayboltXEI'd recommend keeping your backups around so that if someone else has ideas, they can help maybe get back more than that.23:35
eater_0it seems like all the stuff should still be there, since only the partition table is messed up23:35
arrayboltXEAnd maybe also keep the damaged 1TB drive around so that hopefully you can get in later. If the data is critical enough, a data recovery lab might help.23:35
eater_0but yes, the unreadable drive and the backup of the unreadable drive are safe and sound23:36
arrayboltXEYou might also keep fiddling with TestDisk, it seemed to just work for me.23:36
