Elliot_AldersonIs there a place in /var/log where I can see why my Ubuntu 20.04 freezes randomly?00:33
Elliot_AldersonI can't seem to find the reason why the OS freezes up randomly00:33
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: if you're using gnome try disabling all the extensions00:34
Elliot_AldersonWhat extensions?00:36
Elliot_AldersonI checked Gnome Tweaks and only dock was on00:36
Elliot_AldersonI have turned that off00:37
sarnolda lot of gnome users install things from https://extensions.gnome.org/# and they're quite often the cause of stability problems00:37
Kali_Yugahello somebody did something bad, uhm he typed 'mv /* /var/www/html' <- don't ever type this, and now there is grub rescue apparently, besides telling him to use a live usb to get all his stuff from the hdd and reinstall there is not much more I could tell him.. any way of restoring or is it gone now?00:37
Elliot_AldersonI have not installed any new extentions00:37
Elliot_AldersonIs there a place in /var/log where I might see why the freezing is taking place?00:38
sarnoldKali_Yuga: probably if you can get a 'mv' executable to work: mv /var/www/html/{bin,boot,dev,etc,home,lib,lib32,lib64,libx32,media,mnt,opt,proc,root,run,sbin,snap,sys,tmp,usr,var}  /  -- might just fix it00:40
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: maybe; it depends on why it hung, just how badly hung the machine is, etc..00:41
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: some problems are severe enough the kernel won't write anything to disk for fear of wrecking something00:41
Elliot_AldersonAlt+PrtSc REISUB doesn't even work00:42
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: other times, the system is wedged badly enough it doesn't have any choice in writing or not :) heh00:42
Kali_Yuga@sarnold okay well he's stuck in grub rescue, so..00:42
sarnoldKali_Yuga: ugh. that's not good. it's time to grab a live usb00:43
Kali_Yugasarnold: not much you can do in that00:43
Kali_Yugasarnold: yes that's what I said live usb, back everything up and reinstall00:43
sarnoldyeah; perhaps *someone* can get from a grub shell to sorting it out, but certainly not me :)00:43
sarnoldKali_Yuga: there's probably something less drastic than reinstall00:43
Kali_Yugasarnold: probably but I'm not sure what00:44
sarnoldKali_Yuga: ^^^ that mv command I gave a few lines ago would work from a live image boot, with slight changes00:44
Elliot_Aldersonsarnold: Is there a way to put the OS in a hyper verbose mode?00:45
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: most folks turn towards "observability" tools like pcp or similar to log memory use, swap use, etc etc00:46
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: sometimes you can get more information from the system by using a BMC (idrac, ilo, ipmi) to fake up a serial console, or use a real serial console, to get messages from the kernel after certain classes of problems00:47
Elliot_Aldersonsarnold: I look into "observability" tools. Thank you!00:49
sarnoldElliot_Alderson: good luck :) hopefully you can figure out what's causing your machine to wedge up00:49
Kali_Yugasarnold: thank you anyway00:52

nb-benhi, for some reason /dev/ttyS0 has mode 0620 (group tty). I wrote udev rules to correct that to 0660. The rule works as expected when I run `sudo udevadm trigger`, but not when booting.04:55
nb-benI'm thinking maybe I am not writing my rules in such a way that would override whatever is in 50-udev-default.rules or maybe there's something besides udev that changes these permissions on boot?04:57

jim90is removing the home folder enough for wiping a computer?08:52
IaMnEwHeRejim90, depends on what you understand by whipe(your measurement of security), it also depends on whether you had anything running working outide of /home/xxxx, the tmp-folder comes to miind08:58
IaMnEwHeRe*mind08:58
IaMnEwHeRejust take a live-cd boot into it, umount the drive and whack it using dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda ... and then dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda ... and you are save and sound for 99.x% of the cases, mind you the type of harddrive is also to be considered09:00
jim90basic removal is enough (I'm not a spy). As for the second point, I'm not sure. It's a Ubuntu. From what I gather browser data lives inside home also. I'm leaving my job and I'd like to wipe my station before I go, but I only have ssh access09:00
IaMnEwHeRee.g. a sdd-drive has diverent writing-patterns than a hdd drive09:00
IaMnEwHeRe? you only have ssh-access?09:01
IaMnEwHeReare we talking work-station or server?09:01

ouyesConjecture, Odoo09:01
ouyes!info Odoo09:01
ubottuPackage Odoo does not exist in focal09:01
jim90Yeah. So I was planning on doing rm -rf ~, and then rm -rf / . It's a work computer (the one you sit at, with a screen), not a server (but it was used as a server in some cases)09:02
IaMnEwHeRethen you should have more than just ssh-access09:04
IaMnEwHeRebesides, your employer might not like it.09:04
ouyesjim90, God help the child09:04
IaMnEwHeRe_ALL_ data on the work-machine is property of the company, so they might get you for sabotage09:04
IaMnEwHeRealso consider that rm -fr ~ while in an ssh-session is a ballsy move, dunno how ssh will react to that09:05
IaMnEwHeResame goes for a regular session with gdm, kdm or so working09:06
jim90IaMnEwHeRe I mean, it has personal data on it. The system is due for an update (it's 18.10 i think) anyway. They'll have to reinstall it in any case. I'd just feel more comfortable cleaning up after myself.09:08
IaMnEwHeRewell that is the reason WHY you should not mix workstuff with personal stuff09:09
IaMnEwHeRebut just going in and deleting your personal files should be sufficieant09:10
IaMnEwHeRethere is .local .config .<application> in your $HOME-folder09:10
IaMnEwHeReI would not touch .ssh and the likes09:10
IaMnEwHeRebe as less invasive as possible09:10
IaMnEwHeReand in that case /tmp etc should not matter09:11
IaMnEwHeReand the applications, other than the browser, installed by your company to work on should not contain personal data anyways09:12
IaMnEwHeRealso consider _NOT_ deleting $HOME/Documents as it might hold more than just your documents, and that, since the PC is not in your possession anymore, others might have looked at it, if not bad process on the IT-departments side, and they might recycle the users, so other peoples stuff, and workstuff might now be in the same folder as yours09:13
IaMnEwHeRego to the IT-Department, state your concerns, I am sure they see Eye-to-Eye and help you delete those files09:13

FatalFUUUIf the company has any sense the would backup that area if its got work in it or advise otherwise09:31
jim90I was the only one who touched this machine from the moment the os was installed. Nobody else has ever had access. All the work I ever did was pushed to repository. I was more concerned with rm -rf going onto mounted filesystems, which might be remote. I haven't mounted anything, I think, but I heard ubuntu mounts SFTP netowork shares automatically09:33
FatalFUUUsetup new user, switch to that, delete old home profile, done09:47
FatalFUUUthere you also leave a new user on the system so it just looks like an empty profile, not that someone has rm -rf'd it09:47
FatalFUUUask your IT if they are going to wipe it? we'd start from scratch always09:47
jim90that's what they did when I came in. I really like your idea ) I a bit worried about data on root. /var and /usr, /snap and /lib. But it seems those are just packages without config or cache.09:55
StephenLynxhey, the gmediarender package is kind of badly written, so it doesn't clean up stuff properly. so now I have a virtual upnp device enabled on boot despite having nothing about it's pulseaudio module enabled on default.pa11:17
StephenLynxi also found out and removed the gmediarender service that was left in the system after uninstall11:17
StephenLynxany idea where it might be enabled?11:18
StephenLynxhow do I read the install script for a package?11:23
TJ-StephenLynx: the package contains pre/post install/remove scripts11:25
StephenLynxyup, already reading those.11:26
StephenLynxthey only seem to call update-rc.d11:26
TJ-StephenLynx: they're run by dpkg and stored in /var/lib/dpkg/*.{pre,post}*11:26
StephenLynxive already e-mailed the mailing list thats on the package page11:27
StephenLynxso i guess ill have to keep manually disabling it11:27
StephenLynxuntil someone figures this one out11:27
TJ-StephenLynx: what specifically is not being cleaned up? uninstalling a package will NEVER affect anything added to user sessions/$HOME and unless you PURGE a package any config files (in /etc/ or /var/) will be left11:28
StephenLynxthe init script on init.d11:28
StephenLynxI removed that package by just using apt-get remove11:28
StephenLynxbut the init script was left.11:28
StephenLynxthe executable it referred was not though.11:29
TJ-StephenLynx: if that is the case, and the script is listed as a normal file in the package, then there's something interfering11:29
TJ-StephenLynx: which Ubuntu release are you using?11:29
StephenLynx1811:29
StephenLynxthe /etc/init.d/gmediarender file to be more specific.11:29
StephenLynxthe config file was not removed either.11:30
TJ-StephenLynx: right; I see it with apt-file. That should always be removed as it is a normail file11:30
StephenLynx /etc/default/gmediarender11:30
TJ-StephenLynx: I'd expect the config file to remain unless you PURRGE11:30
StephenLynxand I can see a bunch of gmediarender files in the cron directory.11:30
StephenLynxhttps://pastebin.com/U4MDQEdH11:31
TJ-StephenLynx: looks like "apt purge" is required from my experiment here11:32
StephenLynxthese all seem to be copies of the init script11:32
StephenLynxbut you can see the files are not being removed as they should?11:32
TJ-StephenLynx: if you look at gmediarender.postrm it clearly shows that only PURGE will remove it11:46
TJ-StephenLynx: "all those files" aren't files as such, they're symbolic links to /etc/init.d/gmediarender11:46
StephenLynxback11:54
StephenLynxah, yeah. I didn't remove them.11:55
StephenLynxnow im looking at a second possibility, it is NOT gmediarender responsible for the device. but the other thing about upnp that I installed that did the other way around: it broadcast upnp instead of rendering.11:55
StephenLynxremoved pulseaudio-dlna, device is still there on boot. time to investigate that one i guess12:01
StephenLynxno files meaningful files left behind it seems. to the install scripts.12:03

nb-benI have an arm64 Ubuntu Server 20.04 installation on an RPi 3B+. From what I gather, my options to prevent u-boot from using the uart pins are limited to deploying my own flavor of u-boot built with CONFIG_BOOTDELAY=-2. So my questions are: 1. Is this really the only option?; 2. If so, then seeing that u-boot-rpi package is installed, am I to uninstall it? or should I simply replace the u-boot binaries12:52

rexwin_what is the best email client like ssmtp?16:19
leftyfbrexwin_: best is relative. ssmtp is also still available. As is msmtp16:20
leftyfbrexwin_: msmtp is part of the universe repo16:20
leftyfb!universe | rexwin_16:20
ubotturexwin_: The packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories.16:20
leftyfbrexwin_: also, to be clean ssmtp isn't a client16:21
coconutTJ-, it's a fairly new laptop(1 month) and it had no wifi issues the first three weeks. I hope it is not a hardware failure.16:22
coconutTJ-, i installed ubuntu mate 20.04 on it since 06-06-2020 and updated it almost daily16:24
omnisiphey guys -- I have an X11 issue or such where I can no longer easily focus between windows with the mouse16:24
omnisipkeyboard works fine16:24
omnisip(mostly)16:24
omnisipbut the mouse scroll wheel will randomly start acting like alt tab16:25
omnisipand then I can't click in or on any window16:25
omnisiponly thing that I can do to resolve it is to restart X16:25
coconuti did not updated uefi or other firmwares though16:25
TJ-coconut: it looks like a system issue from what I can see there's a 0.5 second timeout waiting for the device to respond to the enable action16:25
TJ-coconut: Has lotuspsychje  suggested the acpi_osi workaround ?16:26
coconutTJ-, no16:26
TJ-coconut: here's the doc I wrote for it:  https://iam.tj/prototype/enhancements/Windows-acpi_osi.html16:26
TJ-coconut: no guarantees but it 'feels' like it could be due to ACPI not configuring the hardware correctly16:27
coconutTJ-, need to eat now. Will read that this evening, thnx!16:30
TJ-coconut: let us know if it solves it16:31

Orcs53_Hi guys, running Ubuntu 20.04 on a RPi 3B+, with cwm, xdm, and X11. I've reached some issues trying to use this RPi with an old 720p TV. When I boot the computer I get a "Mode not supported" prompt on the TV. I have had this issue using Raspberry Pi OS, but, to solve this, I just set the resolution to 1280x720 on another display, then once the RPi17:08
Orcs53_has started it displays correctly. The issue using Ubuntu 20.04, is there is no graphical display tool.17:08
Orcs53_I am attempting to set the resolution to something the TV supports in the script "/etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup" which is run before the login widget. See here https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/NWmHg9r2D5/17:11
TJ-Orcs53_: how is the TV connected? Is it providing EDID correctly (see Xorg.0.log) ?17:13
Orcs53_@TJ It is connected via HDMI. No, the TV does not seem to provide EDID. I checked this with the "tvservice" command on Raspberry Pi OS just now.17:14
Orcs53_This is the last entry to /var/log/xdm.log, which shows output from the script which configures the resolution. https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/9h6sWb2DXW/17:16
Orcs53_Any ideas would be appreciated very much!17:17
minallHello Ubuntu community!, I'm trying to install pgadmin4. I added a repository for this, when installing 'pgadmin4 pgadmin4-apache2' through apt. It installs a dependency it needs named 'pgadmin4-web', which fails to install due to trying to overwrite a previous file... deleting this file doesn't help much... How can I debug this?17:17
TJ-minall: sounds like you've two packages both trying to install the same file? You could use dpkg-divert to correctly divert (and move) the original file so dpkg/apt know about it17:20
minallI uninstalled pgadmin-desktop, another package that was making all the issues, thanks for the help, it is now solved!17:21
pcatineanHi guys, I installed acrobat reader (acrordrc) from snap store which installed wine and the lot. I don't know where the location of My documents in Wine is on my local or why I cannot save files in my /home/ directory on ubuntu17:33
pcatineanAnyone got any advice17:33
quadrathoch2pcatinean make sure that the permissions are set correct (so you can read your home folder)17:34
pcatineanquadrathoch2, I did not change anything, left everything by default17:35
pcatineanJust now discovered that the files are in /home/pcatinean/snap/acrordrdc/common17:35
pcatineanso at least that17:35
pcatineanI also had to manually download windows 7 fonts and place them in /usr/share/fonts/smth to work which I find strange17:35
pcatineanShouldn't wine include them as well?17:35
quadrathoch2pcatinean no they can't (afaik) because of the license17:36
