leftyfbpycurious: which vulnerability?00:07
sarnoldpycurious: are you really running a two year old kernel from debian? https://launchpad.net/debian/+source/linux/4.19.181-100:09
sarnoldpycurious: if so, there's dozens of way more important issues than whatever is in linux-libc-dev you gotta fix00:09

Muliganis anybody here good w/lxc containers?05:24
arraybolt3Muligan: Maybe. If you ask your question, someone might know the answer and be able to help.05:25
arraybolt3(I use LXC some but I'm not exactly an expert at it :P)05:25
Muliganit's an oddball setup05:25
Muligani'm simply trying to figure out this system05:25
Muliganthere's very minimal documentation that really dives into it05:25
Muliganit's an 'Antman' system by Antsle05:26
Muliganso far, I've been able to migrate the KVM's off into my vSphere cluster, but having an issue w/these LXC's05:26
arraybolt3That issue being?05:27
Muliganfrom what multiple lxc commands that I've run, they've yielded as NOT running05:27
arraybolt3Also is this system running an official Ubuntu installation?05:27
Muliganhowever the webui of this unit is running, and the two LXC's that are running, the data/webui's to those LXC's are reachable05:28
Muliganit's a Ubiquiti AirController05:28
arraybolt3(Official as in, you downloaded an image from an official Ubuntu website and used that to install Ubuntu on the device.)05:28
Muliganalong with Ubiquiti Mfi05:28
Muliganarraybolt3, no05:28
arraybolt3Muligan: To be clear, is this Ubuntu at all? And if so, is this an Ubuntu installation that came with the device?05:28
Muliganunfortunately, not05:29
arraybolt3You might have better luck in #lxc then.05:29
arraybolt3(This channel only supports official Ubuntu operating systems.)05:29
arraybolt3However the #lxc channel supports LXC in general.05:29
arraybolt3Glad to help!05:29
Muliganarraybolt3, sad thing is, this box is way old05:31
Muliganoutdated, etc.05:31
Muligansome of the converted KVM's I'll end up rebuilding altogether05:32
arraybolt3Muligan: Hmm... re-reading your questions, you're trying to migrate these containers off of where they are onto an Ubuntu system?05:32
arraybolt3Ah, I get it.05:32
Muligani'm simply trying to access the LXC environment in order to get in to reset the DB passwd05:32
arraybolt3Can you use "lxc shell" to get into the containers?05:33
arraybolt3Possibly using "lxc start" to get it running?05:33
MuliganI couldn't even get into the console of the hosted KVMs, I wound up shutting them down, converting the qcow2 vdisks on over to vmdk, and rebuilt them using the vmdk's on my vsphere environment05:33
Muliganthe basic command 'lxc' doesn't exist05:34
arraybolt3Oh yikes.05:34
Muliganlxc-ls lists 'alpha, beta, and gamma'05:34
Muliganthen when I go to get info of each one of those, it shows them  as not running05:34
arraybolt3That's probably something we can't help with then. We don't really know how odd devices like that work.05:34
arraybolt3Though if "lxc-ls" exists, "lxc-shell" might exist?05:34
MuliganI understand, just looking for some direction05:35
Muligan1st time really dealing with lxc's at all05:35
arraybolt3And maybe "lxc-start", too.05:35
Muliganlxc-shell doesn't even exist05:35
arraybolt3(There actually is an "ls" subcommand in normal "lxc", so that's why I'm thinking... oh, tar, ok nevermind)05:35
arraybolt3lxc-start might though.05:36
arraybolt3Muligan: Try "lxc-console" then.05:36
arraybolt3Looks like these "lxc-*" commands are part of the lxc-utils package, and there's an "lxc-console" command in there.05:36
arraybolt3Looks like it's on your system too.05:37
MuliganHonestly, I'm lead to believe that this system is just jacked05:40
Muligani mean, it's running 0.4.0b of Antman, and there clear up to 4.0 now for the release05:41
arraybolt3Muligan: Try using lxc-start then?05:41
arraybolt3But yeah, with something this old, it may be easier (possibly *far* easier) to start from scratch.05:41
MuliganI will start from scratch, but I'm trying to get in and set some commands to default/reset the webui passwd for this AirControl program by Ubiquiti05:42
arraybolt3Now maybe it will let you use lxc-console?05:42
Muligani'm not sure which option of lxc-control to issue05:45
Muliganlxc-ls --active -1 spits out nothing05:47
arraybolt3Yeah then I'm not sure either.05:48
Muliganhell, even lxc-ls --fancy isn't even supported in this version05:49

hsiktas[m]anyone here who considers that faster bugfixes in non-LTS releases are better than staying with an LTS for two years? Is that too optimistic toward non-LTS releases?11:36
=== realivanjx6 is now known as realivanjx
matsamanhsiktas[m]: LTS is strictly to put off updating. Not putting off updating is always better if time allows11:42
hsiktas[m]sound reasonable...11:43
hsiktas[m]sounds :)11:43
matsamansadly plenty of organizations are so buried in nonsense, five years and it can still be hard to find time to update11:44
matsamaneverything depends on your system being maintained, though, so, gotta11:44
koffeinfriedhofhsiktas[m]: depends on what tools you use. LTS is fine for main and restricted, but most programs come from universe and are not or less supported. its a very individual task to check if lts suits you.11:45
hsiktas[m]it would be nice if universe would be somehow decoupled from the other repos. Like provide the usual support duration for main/restricted but all supported releases point to a common universe repo that gets regular imports from Debian. (basically similar to how each supported FreeBSD release points to the same package versions in their ports tree)11:49
koffeinfriedhofthat won't be possible as libraries change and some tools have to be recompiled. But thats what Snap is for. Same versions across all ubuntus.11:51
matsamansame nonsense version =P11:53
koffeinfriedhofBUT same version :D11:53
matsamanas far as you know11:53
koffeinfriedhofyep. I just assume it as I do not use snap or ubuntu at all ;)11:55
matsamanI don't either, but there's nothing good about snap11:57
koffeinfriedhofDepends. Allowing decentralized servers (or stores if you want) would be great. Sandboxing itself is a good approach considering users being allergic to read stuff about users, groups, permissions,…12:00
matsamansandboxing is critical given that ever snap is a block box from upstream12:01
koffeinfriedhofsad but true. But everyone has to trust somebody as we cannot read all source codes ourselves. Canonical is probably not the best to trust in, but there are worse. If you look what applications are requested and used, it is a minor issue.12:05
agatdo you think?12:05

koffeinfriedhofvlm: You can technically if you use the GPL3-snap-client-stuff and write your own server application. But its easier to take other approaches like flatpak and host a custom repository for it.12:19
matsamaneasier to avoid both snaps and flatpak =P12:24
koffeinfriedhoftrue. Just use a free/libre distribution, read the basics and you are done.12:26

jhutchinsclarkk: Which kernel?14:00
ravageELFrederich: yea14:00
ELFrederich.... because the root password is set to the same as my user's password.  That also seems like a bug.  Shouldn't most installs not even have a root password at all?14:01

jhutchinsakik: Thanks for confirming that.  Assumptions often lead to errrors.14:01
leftyfbakik: my guess is, even logging out of the desktop isn't enough, maybe try restarting GDM as well. Maybe there's still some process under your username running14:02
akiknewgrp is problematic that you need to run it then in every shell14:02
akikcan somebody else test this?14:03
akikpick a group from /etc/group that you're not part of (id, groups commands), then sudo usermod -a -G group your_username, logout & login, check id or groups command14:03
leftyfbakik: but newgro does work for the terminal right? That means the changes have been made successfully but we're not "logging out" sufficiently14:04
akikleftyfb: i didn't test it because it's not a solution i want to use14:04
leftyfbakik: please test it14:04
akikleftyfb: yes newgrp works, but it changes the primary group14:07
akikleftyfb: and then i'd need to run it in each shell14:08

tomreynpydev: note that ubuntu is a debian derivate, and uses the same uid ranges as debian. to make sure you apply debian-like standards, i recommend working with the frontends (debian and) ubuntu provides for this purpose: adduser and addgroup - and to refer to their manual pages, too.17:19
pydevtomreyn, ok17:19
pydevbut basically i need users to run my web projects but they do not need to login17:20
pydevso i wonder if i need to create normal users or system users17:20
tomreynactually, useradd also follows login.defs, which defines the proper ranges, so the choice between useradd and adduser is just a matter of convenience / preference, i guess. sorry.17:22
pydevtomreyn, i have a doubt i have created an user with17:26
pydevuseradd -M -N -r -s /sbin/nologin -g www-data myuser17:26
pydevwhy /home/myuser ??17:27
tomreyni'd say: use system users to run services or for any technical purpose which is not tied to an existing person (or group of persons, who just need a single login). but the line can be drawn differently by some tools and for some purposes and workloads.17:28
=== PeGaSuS is now known as irc_m
tomreynwhat did you expect the home directory to be?17:28
akikpydev: use -d option for that17:29
pydevtomreyn, i am using -M that says  do not create the user's home directory17:29
pydevis the home mandatory ? why has been set to /home/myuser17:29
akikpydev: if it doesn't have a home dir, it probably starts in / i think17:30
pydevakik, in /etc/passwd i see : myuser:x:997:33::/home/myuser:/sbin/nologin17:31
=== irc_m is now known as PeGaSuS
akikpydev: i don't know about -M17:31
pydev-M, --no-create-home          do not create the user's home directory17:31
akikpydev: maybe it's for a case where that dir would already exist17:32
pydevakik, the funny thing is that if i go do /home17:32
pydevthere is no /myuser directory :D17:32
pydevso i just see it in /etc/passwd17:33
akikpydev: what if you now run "sudo su - myuser" ?17:33
ELFrederichIs there a place to post screenshots to this channel?17:34

ELFrederichk, if nothing particularly recommended I'll use the first thing Google gave me;-)  ... https://snipboard.io/KGuU74.jpg17:35
akikpydev: did it start in / ?17:36
ELFrederichThat's on a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 on a fresh install of VirtualBox on a fresh install of Windows 11.  My old 20.04 VM which I copied over launches Gimp just fine.  All the text is messed up on 22.0417:36
leftyfbpydev: it did what you told it to do. It created the user and didn't create the home directory17:36
tomreynpydev: useradd -M is decribed to do exactly do what you see - (assign but) not create the users' home directory.17:36
leftyfbpydev: what exactly are these users for?17:37
pydevthese users are for running gunicorn it is basically a webserver to run django webapp17:38
pydevbehing nginx17:38
pydevso basically each website has its own user17:38
leftyfbpydev: sounds like a job for docker honestly17:38
pydevBUT the same group (www-data)17:38
tomreynELFrederich: this may be an incompatibility of virtualbox and wayland (which 22.04 uses by default)17:39
pydevtomreyn, exactly it does not create the home but for some reason it assign one home17:39
tomreyneffortDee: there's a channel #vbox on the irc.oftc.net irc network, and they have a forum, too17:39
leftyfbpydev: it will do that. You can specify a different home if you like17:39
pydevtomreyn, i see that /var/www is the home for www-data so i suppose i can create /var/www/website1 as the home directory of a specific user17:39
tomreynpydev: because it does so by default, yes17:39
tomreynpydev: i don't see why not17:40
pydevtomreyn, what? can i create "nested" home directory ?17:40
ELFrederichhmm... this sucks.  https://askubuntu.com/questions/1447077/display-problem-with-ubuntu-22-04-on-virtualbox17:41
pydevi mean...inside /etc/passwd i see /var/www with www-data user17:41
ELFrederichit's "solved" by disabling 3d acceleration.  Everything seems so slow when it's disabled.17:41
pydevso if i create an user with an home inside v17:41
pydev /var/www/website117:41
pydevis this possible?17:42
tomreynpydev: you can create directories all over your file system, and set homr directories for users to point wherever, whether that will do what you intend or be good idea security-wise is an entirely different question.17:42
ELFrederichtomreyn why just gimp is messed up though?17:42
tomreynELFrederich: i wouldn't know that. it seems the window decoration is, too, so it's not just the application17:43
pydevtomreyn, yes but in my case i will create an home inside another  home17:43
leftyfbpydev: as I suggested before, create the users as normal, create the /home, set the "<Directory> for each web site/server to each users /home/user1/WWW/17:43
tomreynpydev: you can do so. it is probably a bad idea.17:44
pydevleftyfb, yes but as we said those are system users so i should not create the home dir no?17:46
pydevi read in that link you posted before17:46
leftyfbpydev: don't set them as system users17:47
leftyfbthere's not really a benefit here17:47
tomreynis this for separating users in a virtual hosting setup?17:47
pydevno tomreyn  no virtualhosts17:48
pydevok i will create normal users17:48
tomreynso what is it?17:48
pydevit is a web server where i run my rojects but there is no virtualizations17:48
pydevwhy do i have to virtualize it ?17:49
leftyfbnginx does virtualhosts17:49
pydevleftyfb, yes17:49
pydevvirtual hosts...yes i meant docker17:49
leftyfbso use docker17:49
pydevso i set the "virtualhost" to /var/www/website1 /var/www/website217:49
leftyfbset it to /home/user/website1/WWW17:50
pydevleftyfb, why? is there a particular reason for that?17:50
pydevyes yes17:50
pydevleftyfb, you mean /home/USER/www17:50
leftyfbup to you17:50
tomreyn"virtual hosts" refers to having multiple domain names point to a single (web)server. it is not related to virtualization or containers.17:50
pydevok tomreyn so i have virtualhosts17:51
leftyfbso why do you need to run a separate web server for each user?17:52
tomreynpointing to a single (web)server and having the (web) server respond differently based on the domain / hostname requested17:52
tomreyn^ more precisely17:52
pydevtomreyn, yes exactly17:52
pydevhowever ok got it17:52
pydevi will create N users as per the number of websites i need to run17:52
leftyfbpydev: so use virtualhosts, not separate web servers17:52
pydevthen create /www inside the home17:52
pydevleftyfb, it is a bit more complicated because as i said17:53
pydevi have nginx....yes....but i also have gunicorn that is the web server that is running the django appliations17:53
leftyfbthen again, you should be running each user and this setup in separate docker containers17:54
ELFrederichtomreyn disabling Wayland worked.  sudo nano -w /etc/gdm3/custom.conf ... and uncomment the line which disables Wayland17:55
tomreynELFrederich: congratulations for successfully working around a bug that's not ubuntu's17:56
pydevleftyfb, never used docker idk ...i wonder what is the benefit of running many containers.... N containers for GUNICORN N containers for NGINX17:56
leftyfbpydev: if you're using nginx to support multiple webservers talking to gunicorn, you can do without that if you use docker. Each docker will have it's own gunicorn setup17:57
ELFrederichtomreyn until the bug is fixed perhaps we don't know whose bug it is.17:58
tomreynELFrederich: well, it doesn't occur with other virtualizations, that at least makes it unlikely.17:59
pydevleftyfb, yes exactly but in that case i need to run N different containers for gunicorn  other N container for NGINX with different configuration18:00
pydevseems hard to mantain18:00
leftyfbpydev: no, you put all that into each container18:00
leftyfbper user18:01
leftyfbassume you only have 1 user. Put everything it needs into 1 container18:01
leftyfbthen duplicate that for each user18:01
pydevi heard that each container should run one service18:01
pydevone container per service18:01
leftyfbthe host OS doesn't need anything installed on it other than docker18:01
pydevleftyfb, i think that nginx should be just one...because i only can have one container listening on port 8018:03
pydevso just one container for nginx and then N container for N projects18:03

bluejaypopand it's weird, when i dont move the mouse it works good enough, but when I use the mouse, the flickering starts.19:48
sneakyimpbluejaypop: flickering screen, in my experience, is usually due to a cable not being plugged in properly. you have a laptop, though. i wonder if it might be a display driver issue? sadly, i cannot offer any real assistance in this matter.19:51
bluejaypopsneakyimp, could be, since its working normally in Win1019:52
sneakyimpbluejaypop: i remember when i was trying to get blender running optimally on my ubuntu workstation that I downloaded a linux-compatible driver from nvidia. perhaps you could investigate what kind of display chip/card you have in your lenovo, and see if they offer linux-compatible drivers. otherwise, you could look into other generic drivers19:55

ice9if there is a crash or a bug in one of the software like nouveau, i915 or gnome-shell, etc. Why should we file a bug on the Launchpad? why not directly on the bug track of that software?20:34
sneakyimpjhutchins: I would also point out that PHP 7.4 was EOL in November of 2022, and no longer receives security fixes. I think the problem is sluggish deployment of apt packages20:35
athosPHP 8.2 transition will happen in the next release cycle, meaning Ubuntu will ship it starting in 23.10. Ubuntu does keep supporting the versions of PHP we ship in our supported versions. For 22.04, there is no "sluggish deployment". It is about api/abi stability.21:03
athosNow, we could indeed discuss why the transition did not happen yet, even though 8.2 was released back in late November21:04

hsiktas[m]for example: opening a pdf, leaving it open for hours or even days, and then making an annotation and saving it. Would that sync back?22:06
