Guest35I'm trying to install 22.04 LTS server on a hard drive with a previously installed OS on it (which I want to overwrite). In the guided storage config screen, I select "Use an entire disk" and "Set up this disk as an LVM group". On the next screen, the installer says it will create three mount points (/, /boot, /boot/efi) with sizes 54.367G, 2.000G,04:53
Guest35and 1.049G respectively. Under Available Devices, it shows ubuntu-vg (new) using 108.734G and then free space taking 54.367G. My entire drive is 120 GB. Shouldn't the ubuntu-vg take up the entire disk? Is it not doing so because of the pre-existing OS on the drive?04:53
rboxif you're worried dabout the partitoins that already exist, then delete them04:54
Guest35my goal is to make sure my previous data is overwritten and I start with a "fresh install"04:54
Guest35rbox, under "Used Devices", under my disk label (Samsung_SSD_840_EVO_120GB), it shows 3 partitions, but they all say "new", does that mean I should be good?04:55
rboxno clue04:56
rboxbut like i said, if you are worried, just delete them yourself04:56
Guest35rbox, thanks, should i format as ext4?04:57
rboxformat what04:58
Guest35after removing the partitions, the drive, I guess04:58
Guest35sorry I'm a noob04:58
rboxstep 1 delete the partitions04:59
rboxstep 2 profit04:59
rboxthere is nothing else04:59
Guest35ok I try to delete a partition and it says "Cannot delete a single partition from a device that already has partitions."05:00

Guest35When installing 22.04 LTS, my installation just says at "curtin command in-target" and doesn't go beyond that. I've waited 20 minutes already.05:48
hiyaGuest35: Did you make a USB?05:50
Guest35hiya, yes, installing from a USB05:54
Guest35i set up the installer, update to latest installer, get all the way to the end where its installing after asking for user name and password and enabling SSH, and then just stays stuck at that line05:55

bluf0xhi, on Ubuntu 22.04 is it possible to use add-apt-repository with the signed-by parameter, such as add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/key.gpg] https://repo.com/repo jammy contrib' ?  or is the signed-by no longer supported?10:14

bluf0xHi, please can someone assist? im trying to add a repo that includes [arch=amd64 signed-by=/...], it adds successfully using echo and it updates successfuly using apt update, however the problem is that this repo does NOT show under Software & Updates > Other Software.  The only time it reflects correctly is if i remove the "signed-by" parameter within the .list file.  I also cannot add a repo via the Software & Updates > Other Software GUI, if i12:13
bluf0xinclude the signed-by parameter, its still greyed out and doesnt allow me to add it.12:13
bluf0xIs there an existing issue with the Software & Updates GUI ?  To reproduce the issue, you can try adding a repo that includes the signed-by parameter, even if you dont put arch=amd64, it STILL wont show up in the GUI.12:13

ravageNo idea12:29
ravageMark yourself as affected12:29
ravageAnd hope for the best12:30
lotuspsychjebluf0x: a good practice to speedup bug solving, is marking yourself affected and find others to do the same, then do some tests yourself and keep the bug active/alive12:37
bluf0xlotuspsychje, so if only a few people are affected, does the bug fixing get ignored? is that why it takes months and years for launchpad to fix a bug, because not enough users mark themselves as affected?12:39
lotuspsychjebluf0x: there are several reasons why bugs dont get solved right away, it can depends on the dev(s) of the packages aswell or some bugs need to get solved upstream too12:40

hid3Greetings everyone. Does 'unattended-upgrades' run on daily basis or does it run only on system shutdown? Is there any way to check that?13:55
hid322.04 LTS, obviously13:55
=== alprolife is now known as tractelimon
ppwthere is a way to check, but I don't know off the top of my head. likely in /etc/apt14:14
ppw /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades14:15
ppwor /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20auto-upgrades14:16
hid3yeah, checked those files, all seems to be set up just the way I need14:18
hid3however, I'm not sure if there is a mechanism which launches it14:18
hid3e.g. cron or so14:18
hid3(there doesn't seem to be any cron job for it)14:19
ppwcron? why do you think it uses cron?14:19
ppwubuntu uses systemd, and systemd uses timers14:20
hid3yeah, there seeems to exist some apt related times14:20
hid3I guess I just need to wait and observe the logs14:20
ppwcat /var/log/apt/history.log14:21
hid3and cron is still something what exist and maany things use it :)14:21
ppwat least that's how it's set up in debian14:21
ppwnot typically14:21
ppwif it does, it's likely set up via anacron, which, when used with systemd, very likely just sets up systemd timers14:22
hid3I'm planning to implement some cron jobs (cron daily, weekly, monthly) to do some system maintenance, downloading, backuping etc. Since I have a farm of VMs residing in one physical machine, I guess I should consider switching to anacron instead, in order to randomise start times of those scripts too avoid crowding the physical host resources instantly, at the same time. Or am I wrong with this assumption?14:26
leftyfbhid3: look into systemd timers14:27
hid3cron scripts are easier to set up. I just place the required script into /etc/cron.[daily|weekly|monthly] dir and done with that. With timer, I need to have that script placed elsewhere plus configure a .timer file14:29
hid3what advantages of timers am I missing?14:29
ppwif you really want to use cron/anacron, then check out systemd-cron.14:29
leftyfbhid3: systemd service/timers gives you more options and control. It's also the modern way to run timed jobs.14:30
hid3not a problem for me to configure the .timer file, just wanted to know the advantages of it. Alright, will consider all the options14:31

It's not a new install, it's possible it's been used since kernel v5.15:57

leftyfbthough, I'm pretty sure if you just keep all the defaults, Ubuntu will take care of everything just fine22:36
oerheksubuntu uses standard one partition with swapfile. conveniant, so you never run out of space in /root22:36
