BiessieOnce20.04 releases, 19.10 support drops?00:07
oerheks19.10 support will end 20.07, 9 mo00:08
hmmmmhi, i have Xubuntu 19.04 installed, but to get metasploit I added the Kali package repository00:32
oerhekshmmmm, that makes a not-ubuntu installation, good luck with that.00:32
hmmmmthen when i sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade, it started updating all my xubuntu packages with kali linux packages... when i rebooted it went to a blank black screen with a blinking underscore00:32
hmmmmhow do i undo this?00:33
oerheksreinstall xubuntu.00:33
hmmmmi have a home directory that i don't want wiped out though00:33
oerheksbut take 19.10, that is supported.00:33
Jordan_Uhggdh: The Ubuntu installer will allow you to reinstall while preserving your home directory, even without /home on a separate partition.00:34
Jordan_Uhmmmm: ^^00:34
hmmmmshould i try to back up with a livecd just in case?00:34
Jordan_Uhmmmm: Backups are always a good idea.00:35
hmmmmalso, why is this even possible in the first place?00:35
o0hmmmm: https://github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework/wiki/Nightly-Installers00:35
hmmmmdoesn't it make sense that you'd add alternate repositories to get one piece of software, not everything?00:35
oerheks"if you have no backup of your precious data, it is not important"00:35
Jordan_Uhmmmm: If you add a repository with packages that are newer than the ones you have installed, they will be installed automatically. There are ways to add repositories without that happening, but it is not the default.00:36
hmmmmthis is ridiculous, it's an apt beginner's trap00:36
exit70also consider whether there is disk/home encryption00:36
hmmmmhow could've i anticipated it would destroy my installation00:37
oerhekserr, you understand kali messes around with privelidges and apparmor?00:37
hmmmmno, did not know that00:37
oerheksit is not ubuntu anymore00:37
oerheksone should run that in a VM, kvm preferrably00:37
oerheksvbox is too easy to escape00:38
exit70or just pick an old laptop00:39
hmmmmhey guys, how do i reinstall ubuntu if it was previously installed with a single LVM partition?01:17
hmmmmi am in the installer, i selected "Something else", and it gives me the screen where you manually edit the partitions.  /dev/mapper/vgxubuntu-root i set the mount point to / with the same ext4 fs, unselected "Format?", didn't need to change anything for the swap partition, and it doesn't give me any options for /dev/sda101:18
hmmmm...is this right?01:19
hmmmmwell i just went for it, the installer gave a warning that the directory structure won't be deleted, so i guess that's reassuring01:20
Jordan_Uhmmmm: Sorry for the late answer, but that seems right. Do you have a UEFI based machine, and did /dev/sda1 end up being a fat32 partition mounted at /boot/efi/ ?01:23
hmmmmi don't remember what i put for the bootloader type in the original installation01:23
hmmmmit didn't say anything for partition type in //dev/sda1 - no details01:23
Jordan_Uhmmmm: Did you choose the option that lets you run other programs while the installer is running? If so, can you open a terminal and pastebin the output of "mount"? That should hopefully clear up how the partitions are being used. Either way, you probably have things setup correctly.01:25
hmmmmoh this doesn't sound good... "Error restoring installed applications - an error occured while restoring previously-installed applications.  The installation will continue, but you may have to manually reinstall some applications after the computer reboots" - actually that doesn't sound terrible01:28
hmmmmoh dammit i forgot to backup the tftp server config01:28
hmmmmbut other than that, we're back!01:30
Jordan_Uhmmmm: Have you successfully rebooted? I don't see any EFI System Partition mounted. Is your computer configured to boot via UEFI?01:32
=== tds1 is now known as tds
hmmmmoh, no, EFI was disabled01:33
Jordan_Uhmmmm: That error likely refers to applications you had installed from Kali's repositories.01:33
hmmmmand yes, i have successfully rebooted01:34
Jordan_Uhmmmm: Great, then sda1 is probably being used as a BIOS Boot Parititon (which has no filesystem, and thus doesn't get mounted).01:34
hmmmmi think i'm mostly back on track now01:37
Jordan_Uhmmmm: You're welcome.01:37

al_nz1in a dir -l ls drwxrwxrwx+ 1002 65534 users 20480 Mar 30 13:37 - what does the 1002 and 65534 mean?01:49
=== zbenjamin is now known as Guest23392
=== zbenjamin_ is now known as zbenjamin
exit70uid and gid02:01
rfmal_nz1, number of links to the file (1002 is a lot, what is going on) and uid of owner (numeric because apparently 65534 isn't used in your /etc/passwd)02:02
exit70hmm ignore my answer02:02
al_nz1rfm: thanks. Re the link02:02
al_nz1links - its a file structure created by a NAS - has lots of sub dirs02:03
rfmal_nz1, ok, all those subdirs have the '..' link pointing back up.  (65534 is usually "nobody", btw)02:04
al_nz1what do you mean by .. ? as in when you cdup with cd ../ ?02:05
rfmal_nz1, yes, every directory contains a entry named ".." which is a link to the parent.  That's why "cd .." takes you up a level...02:06
al_nz1so the ".." is related to the 1002?02:11
rfmal_nz1, yes, presumably the directory has 1001 subdirectories, each with its .. link and the parent of the directory you are listing has a link down into it, making 100202:13
al_nz1Thanks rfm02:20
al_nz1rfm: is 0 = root?02:32
al_nz1in the context of chown 65534:002:32
GoneViralal_nz1: no it is not02:53
GoneViralal_nz1: the second parameter is the group ID02:53

Bomber4Chats7th time or more that I try to install / reinstall linux mint on my MSI comp. and I keep getting to the initramfs console on boot, and when exiting it says it cannot find the UUID of the / partition, even though the UUID mentioned is 1-to-1 what is in the /etc/fstab file...08:21
Bomber4ChatsI am using an /boot/efi partition, or at least I'm trying to do so08:21
Ben64Mint has it's own support channel, #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org08:21
HamiltonIs hibernate disabled by default on 18.04? Then why could I do sudo systemctl hibernate? (but it didn't work on poweron)08:21
Bomber4ChatsBen64 pretty dead channel. I'd like to believe people in the Ubuntu channel might be familiar with this "UUID does not exist" error08:22
Ben64This channel is only for Ubuntu issues08:23
Bomber4Chatslinux mint runs on ubuntu, no? It says on boot that it runs a image08:24
Ben64It isn't Ubuntu, it's based on Ubuntu08:24
lotuspsychjeBomber4Chats: Ben64 just explained you we cant support it08:24
Bomber4Chats ¯\(°_o)/¯   So I don't have linux mint, I have Ubuntu ^_^'08:25
Bomber4Chatsk, nm. hoping someone will be willing to help in private08:25
rory5.0.0.32 sounds like a Linux kernel version, this will be across all distros, Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Fedora... this is specifically Ubuntu only support, because Linux Mint is similar enough to lull you into a sense of false security, then confuse you with a difference.08:27
Bomber4Chatsbut the kernel boots the same across all distros, doesn't it?08:27
Bomber4Chatsjust the boot sequence08:27

dbuggerHi guys. I have a small crisis here. My PC boot. It shows a message of "recovering journal". What can I do??10:07
dbuggerMy PC won't boot now. I'm in root shell from the recovery mode10:07
dbuggerI tried a fsck -f / but it says "/dev/sda5 is already mounted"10:08
dbuggerWhat can I do??10:08
sixwheeledbeastyou can't fsck a device that's mounted10:12
dbuggerDoes that mean I have to use a live CD?10:14
=== Alina-malina_ is now known as Alina-malina
juanonymousok Ben6410:15
sixwheeledbeastIf you have a an issue at boot that need fsck I would use a live image and while booting the live image I think you hold Esc to get the splash screen you can select Check disks10:15
sixwheeledbeastEither that or you can just boot the live image and use gparted to run a fsck10:16
dbuggerI will do that10:16
dbuggerLet's see10:16
sixwheeledbeastIf you use gparted make sure it's not mounted and right click then Check10:19
dbuggerIf it was mounted, I wouldn't be able to check it, no?10:20
sixwheeledbeastI think it should tell you and you have to force it, you shouldn't fsck a mounted device you'll cause data loss10:21
dbuggerIt's green10:21
dbuggerThis is what I'm getting now10:23
dbuggerWhen I boot10:23
dbuggerThe message about the journal is gone, but it's still not booting10:23
sixwheeledbeastjust wait a little10:24
dbuggerOk. I will10:25
dbugger15 minutes should suffice?10:25
sixwheeledbeastI was thinking more like a couple of minutes. what does it display now?10:26

dbuggerNo change10:31
=== Clippy is now known as Birosso
sixwheeledbeastdid gparted complete on the correct drive?10:34
dbuggerThere is only one10:35
sixwheeledbeastYou could try to fsck again with the live image, always make sure its not mounted first. You could mount the drive to see if your stuff it there and maybe back it up if that's of concern. After that you could try to manually repair boot or reinstall Ubuntu over the top keeping your documents.10:39
dbuggerI have Timeshift installed. Maybe doing a restore from yesterday could help??10:43
dbuggersixwheeledbeast: isn't gparted going fsdk?10:48
sixwheeledbeastgparted should have done fsck with the check option? yo could run fsck from a terminal manually if you want10:50
itxoCan I install some package from a private repo (specifically https://jitsi.org/downloads/) without actually adding the repo to my sources and trusting their keys, etc.?10:51
itxoI wouldn't mind generally, but I'd like to avoid querying these repos every time I apt update10:51
dbuggersixwheeledbeast: could you confirm me which command exactly should I run?10:52
sixwheeledbeastfsck  and then the partition10:55
dbuggerI mean the exact commands10:55
dbuggerFor the first, I used "fsck -f /dev/sda5". Is that correct?10:56
sixwheeledbeastI have no idea where your partitions are but if you believe its sda5 then "sudo fsck /dev/sda5"10:56

pragmaticenigmaDwarf: Is there a particular reason that you need the latest OpenSSH version installed on your machine/13:40
Dwarfpragmaticenigma: OpenSSH enables usage of U2F security keys with certificate authentication13:52
pragmaticenigmaDwarf: Do you need client support of that feature, or server level?13:53
DwarfIt seems that the server also needs to be version >=8.2 in order to support it, though I couldn't find any documentation on this13:54
pragmaticenigmaDwarf: It sounds like something that both client and server would need to support, correct. I'm trying to understand your usage case, are you trying to connect somewhere, or just looking to harden your personal systems?13:55
DwarfMy client is 8.2, my Ubuntu server is stuck on whatever Bionic ships13:57
pragmaticenigmaDwarf: Bionic is 7.6, it's something I would caution against trying to upgrade as it may break other things on your system13:58
DwarfA shame. Guess I'll have to wait for the next LTS then13:59
pragmaticenigmaDwarf: Eoan (19.10) has 8.0, and the upcoming Focal (20.04) will only go to 8.1 for now. I suspect that the feature your seeking is accompanied by other buggy features which is why Ubuntu is staying a little behind for now13:59

JumpinJackwhen I use nmap or telnet to check to see if  port 5909 is open, I am get indiications that the port is close.15:04
