01:17<matt__>or do i also need something else?

01:18<jmcnaught>matt__: if you choose guided partitioning it will make the decisions for you. if you use LVM or encryption you'll need a separate /boot partition
01:19-!-muka [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:19<jmcnaught>matt__: how did you put the Debian installer on your USB drive by the way? programs like unetbootin are known to cause weird problems
01:19<matt__>i did try that, but same error message when comes the install grub step
01:19<matt__>i'm using cds
01:20<matt__>so just burning the iso basically
01:21<jmcnaught>okay. if you were using USB stick prepared with unetbootin before that could have been causing your grub install problems
01:21<matt__>I see
01:21-!-Zimmer_Nova [] has joined #debian
01:22<jmcnaught>matt__: take a look at the install manual if you haven't already. it could save some time versus multiple install attempts:
01:22-!-acald3ron [~acald3ron@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:23<matt__>i have checked without luck so far
01:24<matt__>annoyingly ubuntu works out of the box -_-'
01:25<jmcnaught>you'll probably have better luck with the cdrom
01:26<matt__>i have been using only cdroms
01:28<smokeysea>I did install from usb
01:28<smokeysea>but didn't find any issue encounterd while booting from it
01:31<jmcnaught>most people don't but some people have odd hardware or make mistakes. booting from usb works fine, it's unetbootin and tools like it that are known to mangle debian ISO images

03:21<matt__>my question is a few lines up the log
03:21-!-pi [~pi@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:22<jm_>I don't see any questions from you
03:22-!-pi [~pi@] has joined #debian
03:22<jm_>or is it about partitions?
03:22<matt__>that's the one
03:22<jm_>what does EPS mean in it?
03:22-!-CutMeOwnThroat [] has joined #debian
03:22<matt__>EFI System Partition
03:23<matt__>oh awit maybe you missed the beginning of the question
03:23<jm_>I would recommend creating a separate /home, and why no swap? it will work fine without /home too
03:23<matt__>the point is that i can't install debian at the moment, always get a "cant install grub" error
03:24<matt__>even when i choose the guided automatic partitioning
03:24<jm_>so debian is installed now, just grub is not there?
03:24<matt__>technically i suppose so
03:24<jm_>so what happens if you try and install it yourself by hand?
03:25-!-tetrapovicc [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:25<matt__>after choosing "proceed without grub" i get a message "no bootloader installed", boot manually.. etc but I did not succeed in doing that
03:25<matt__>jm_: i don't know how to do that
03:26-!-AntumDeluge [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:26<matt__>if i reboot at that point i get a grub prompt

03:26<jm_>matt__: boot with debian install disc and choose rescue boot or whatever it's called to start with then tell me when you got root shell
03:27-!-Zimmer_Nova [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:27<matt__>i have to reinstall it as i tried other things in between
03:27<matt__>one question before i proceed
03:27<jm_>what other things? maybe there's no need to reinstall
03:28-!-Zimmer_Nova [] has joined #debian
03:28-!-zkiss [] has joined #debian
03:28-!-debu35 [~akhil@] has left #debian []
03:28<matt__>i installed windows first (which was delivered with the machine), and wanted to resize partition/install debian on the side
03:28<matt__>but the installer does not want to resize for unknown reason
03:29<jm_>so you still need to perform resizing step?
03:29<matt__>at the moment i have full disk used by windows
03:29<matt__>and working properly
03:30<matt__>(i don't need to keep windows, i just thought it could help with the partitiong step)
03:30<matt__>(and thank you for your time, i appreciate it)
03:30<jm_>tried gparted live image?
03:31<matt__>that was going to be my next step before you answered
03:31-!-zkiss [] has quit []
03:31-!-dardevelin [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:31<matt__>do you think that's the best strategy? or easiest to just install debian on full disk, and reach the grub problem i had before?
03:31<jm_>well if you want to keep windows then yes
03:32<matt__>i don't need to keep windos
03:32-!-dardevelin [] has joined #debian
03:32<jm_>then best to just reinstall debian I suppose, and if grub doesn't work we can try and help you with it
03:32<matt__>one question before i proceed
03:33<matt__>for the debian cd to boot, i have to disable secure boot in bios
03:33<matt__>i have also read about a bios grub-legacy option, is that something i need to change?

03:34-!-InvadeD [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:34<matt__>"UEFI?legacy Boot"
03:35<matt__>either UEFI only, legacy only, or both
03:35<matt__>default is uefi only
03:35<jm_>yeah disabling secure boot is normal, there's a way to have it enabled too but it's more work; as for legacy, it means it won't boot in uefi mode, I did that at work when I couldn't get grub happy and needed the system for work
03:35<jm_>i would recommend leaving uefi enabled and try with that first
03:36<matt__>i'll let you know when i'm back at the grub problem then

04:19<matt__>jm_: so, the install went fine until "install the grub boot loader on a hard disk" step
04:20<matt__>the error message just says this step failed
04:20<jm_>matt__: what did you choose there?
04:20<matt__>using standard install i had nothing to choose
04:20<jm_>not even where to install it, MBR or partition?
04:21<jm_>so you get no grub menu now if you reboot?
04:21<matt__>to finish the installation i can choose to continue without bootloader
04:21<jm_>yeah that's the last step (other than tasksel I suppose)
04:22<matt__>i get such a message
04:23<jm_>yeah just go with continue
04:23<jm_>nvme, is this some pcie ssd?
04:24<matt__>upon booting there is a message "start pxe over ipv4"
04:24-!-libregeekingkid [~quassel@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:24<matt__>which does not seem to do much
04:25<jm_>that's netboot, so try booting from install cd in rescue mode
04:26<matt__>i'm back on the install cd
04:26<matt__>rescue mode

04:28<matt__>i did the first few steps and i'm now back to configure the network
04:28<matt__>"no partitions found"
04:28<jm_>wait, it should boot into existing installation
04:28<jm_>if not we'll just work on tty2
04:29<matt__>if i wish, i may investigate this from a shell in the installer environment
04:29<jm_>yeah switch to tty2 and check what's mounted
04:29<matt__>how to access this?
04:29<matt__>the debian installer main menu is there
04:30<jm_>that's tty1, tty2 should be shell
04:30<jm_>try ctrl-alt-f2 (you need to press them together)
04:31<jm_>your screen doesn't change?
04:31<jm_>is this laptop perhaps?
04:31<matt__>ctrl alt f2 switches back between where i was (the error message) and the debian install menu
04:31<matt__>yes it is
04:31-!-CutMeOwnThroat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:31<jm_>hmm try ctrl alt cursor right
04:31<matt__>lenovo x1 carbon (supposed to work fine from people's experience)
04:32<matt__>does not work either
04:33<matt__>there is a "execute a shell" option in the mnu though
04:33<jm_>try that
04:33<matt__>i just found this thread also
04:33<jm_>yeah my first thought was maybe this is nvme related
04:34-!-bonswouar [] has joined #debian
04:34<matt__>i'm in the shell
04:34<jm_>now check what's mounted (mount command)
04:34<matt__>rootfs on /
04:35<matt__>none on /run proc sys
04:36<jm_>do you see nvme mentioned anywhere? I assume it's not yet
04:37<matt__>no it's not there
04:37<jm_>so mkdir /tmp/d and now we need to mount it there, "cat /proc/partitions" to identify which one)
04:38-!-Guest2212 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:38<matt__>the root partition?
04:39<matt__>#2 ?
04:40<jm_>yeah I just don't know what your device name will be, looking in there will reveal it
04:40<matt__>it's nvme0n1pX, i just wasn't sure what to use for X
04:41<jm_>yeah look there and you'll know since it lists size too
04:42<matt__>ok mount /dev/nvme0m1p2 /tmp/d then
04:42<jm_>yeah then «chroot /tmp/d»
04:43<jm_>and in there «mount /proc ; mount /sys»
04:43<matt__>no problem there
04:43<jm_>now you also need to mount efi partition on /boot/efi
04:44<jm_>should be /dev/nvme0m1p1
04:44<matt__>in chroot?

04:45<matt__>special device /dev/nvme0n1p1 does not exist
04:45<jm_>hmm that would explain why grub failed I suppose
04:46<jm_>m, not n
04:46<jm_>but confirm it's the right one by looking in /proc/partitions
04:46<matt__>it's n
04:47<jm_>why's / m then? mysterious naming scheme
04:47-!-V`ger [~V`] has joined #debian
04:47<matt__>10:42 < matt__> ok mount /dev/nvme0m1p2 /tmp/d then
04:47<matt__>that was a typo
04:47<jm_>ahh :)
04:48-!-sewi2go [~smuxi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:48<matt__>well i can see why having that one write protected is a problem for debian installer
04:48-!-sewi2go [~smuxi@] has joined #debian
04:48<matt__>but why it ended up write protected?
04:48<jm_>maybe try checking what kernel says (if anything), 'dmesg'
04:50<matt__>the last ones are "couldn't mount as ext3 due to featuer incompatibillities"
04:50<matt__>and a duplicate line with ext2
04:50-!-magyar [] has joined #debian
04:50<jm_>wait, that one should be FAT not extX
04:50<matt__>and last line "mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. opts (null)"
04:51-!-magyar is now known as Guest714
04:51<jm_>try umounting it and mount -t vfat /dev//dev/nvme0n1p1 /boot/efi
04:51<jm_>those messages are probably for other file systems
04:52-!-CutMeOwnThroat [] has joined #debian
04:52<jm_>gah, sorry, remove "/dev/" from that command
04:53<matt__>special device... does not exist
04:53<matt__>no message about write only this time though
04:53<matt__>and nothing new on dmesg
04:53<jm_>verify it's mounted with mount
04:53<matt__>it is
04:54<matt__>style none on /run
04:54<matt__>the rest seems reasonnable (/ /home /boot/efi dev proc sys ...)
04:54<jm_>I am asking about /boot/efi one
04:55<matt__>it is mounted
04:55<jm_>can you do touch /boot/efi/t
04:55<matt__>..1p1 on /boot/efi type vfat..
04:55<jm_>ok now remove the file and try installing grub
04:56<matt__>how to install grub from that shell?
04:56<jm_>is nvme0 listed as the whole device in /proc/partitions?
04:57<matt__>and i saw i can use apt-get to install grub
04:57<jm_>so /usr/sbin/grub-install /dev/nvme0
04:57<matt__>grub-installnot found
04:58-!-lpalgarvio [] has joined #debian
04:58<jm_>is grub not installed at all? dpkg -l|grep grub
04:58<jm_>bummer, so try installing it
04:59<matt__>there is a bunch of variants in apt-cache search grub
04:59<jm_>grub-efi is the package name
05:00<matt__>"/usr/sbin/grub-install /dev/nvme0" -> cannot find EFI directory
05:00<matt__>should it be nvme0n1p1?
05:00<jm_>i'll go to eat something now, be back in about 30 minutes
05:00<jm_>no we want to install it on MBR, that's why I asked what the designation for the entire device is
05:00<matt__>ok thanks for helping
05:01<jm_>it's the line without p1 p2 etc in /proc/partitions
05:01<matt__>enjoy your lunch
05:01<matt__>yes /dev/nvme0 is correct then

06:35<jm_>so we need to grub-install with nvme0nm1?
06:35<matt__>that's the one i've been grub-installing on
06:35<jm_>ls -l /dev|grep nvme look for the first letter
06:35<jm_>you want the one with 'b'
06:36<matt__>yep that's the nvme0n1
06:36-!-pamaury_ [] has joined #debian
06:37<matt__>adding the efi-directory /boot/efi option on grub-install leads to "/boot/efi does not look like an EFI parition"

06:37<matt__>/usr/sbin/grub-install /dev/nvme0n1 --efi-directory /boot/efi
06:38<matt__>(and i'm happy to fiddle as long as i get help, i would be totally clueless on my own.. though i'm learning a lot in the process)
06:38<jm_>hmm can't find that exact error message
06:39<jm_>ahh it says doesn't :)
06:39<matt__>"/boot/efi doesn't look like an EFI partition" is the typo-free version ;)
06:42<jm_>it's comparing fs name and reports that error if it's not "fat"
06:44<matt__>$ mount -t vfat /dev/nvme0n1p1 /boot/efi
06:44<matt__>that's what we did earlier
06:44<jm_>so another mistake of me, try to umount it and mount it as fat
06:45<matt__>that was in chroot, right?
06:45<jm_>but then try install without --efi-dir... option firsdt
06:46<matt__>umount /boot/efi, right?
06:46<matt__>/boot/efi: notmounted
06:46<matt__>but mount says it is
06:47<jm_>what if you try umount /dev/nvme0n1p1
06:48<matt__>/boot/efi: not mounted
06:48<jm_>it's because of our bind mount, exit chroot, umount the bind mount then check mount again
06:49<jm_>but how did you mount /boot/efi if there was no /dev before?
06:50<matt__>$ mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /boot/efi (with the error message that it was write protected)
06:50<matt__>then $ mount -t vfat /dev/nvme0n1p1 /boot/efi
06:50<jm_>yeah but at that point /dev did not have nvme stuff since later on gdisk failed, kinda curious
06:51<matt__>"umount the bind mount" == umount /dev ?
06:51<jm_>outside of chroot: umount /tmp/d/dev
06:52<matt__>ok then check mount again in chroot?
06:52<jm_>you can do it outside too
06:52<matt__>none on /run proc sys

07:32<devnull>Hello. I am using debian 8.4 with gnome 3.14. Can someone help me on how to install gnome 3.18?
07:32<devnull>I don't want to use debian testing
07:33<devnull>Just replace my current desktop
07:33<jm_>there is no gnome 3.18 for jessie
07:33<devnull>Do you know if they gonna release it for Jessie?
07:34<devnull>Kali linux uses it though
07:35-!-debaba [~schindler@] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
07:35<jm_>yeah it will arrive in debian too one day :)
07:36<devnull>Ah one day :p
07:36<devnull>OK thanks man
07:36<matt__>ok i'm out of here, thanks again jm_ and have a good day everyone o/
07:37<musca>devnull: are you talking about the rolling release edition of kali linux?
07:37<devnull>Yes the rolling has 3.18
07:37<musca>and you want rolling but not testing?
07:37<devnull>No. I want the stable Jessie I have now but replace the gnome with 3.18
07:38<devnull>But jm_ said there is no 3.18 gnome for jessie

10:10<diefi>I'm trying to get a package from testing on jessi, I'm following the ssb guide from dpkg, but it suggests to add sources from sid. Do I have to do that even through I only want to mix with stretch?
10:11<sney>diefi: you can deb-src stretch instead
10:11<sney>judd's checkbackport script takes --fromrelease and --torelease arguments as well
10:11<sney>the ssb factoid just explains the general process, you can use it for backporting (or front-porting?) from basically anywhere that offers a deb-src, as long as dependencies are met

12:04<retrospectacus>no. dpkg -i <all of the deb files>
12:05<diefi>I did what was told in the dpkg message, It didn't tell me where to define a location for the packages. I assumed there would be one created in standard folder for builds or something.

12:06<jmcnaught>diefi: it looks to me like you recompiled the version of VLC that's already available in jessie
12:06<diefi>"dpkg -i /home/diefi/" ? Lets say I move those files to /vlc/ would "dpkg -i /home/diefi/vlc" suffice?
12:06<retrospectacus>there are probably more verbose instructions somewhere. Unfortunately dpkg's factoids have a limited length
12:06<diefi>jmcnaught: I already figured as much
12:07<retrospectacus>diefi: no. dpkg -i vlc/*.deb
12:08<diefi>what about the useless dependencies that can be avoided?
12:08<jmcnaught> this is a little more detailed
12:08-!-a-l-e [~quassel@] has joined #debian
12:08<retrospectacus>this is definitely an academic exercise - you're not installing anything that couldn't be done with "apt-get"
12:08<retrospectacus>diefi: no. ignore the build output unless it fails

12:40<blast007>r4fkramer_: you could grab the procps package (which provides that file) and rip the sysctl.conf file out of there ( click on your architecture at the bottom: )

12:50<blast007>r4fkramer_: I'd recommend installing etckeeper and setting that up. It lets you keep version history for all your files in /etc, so you can easily roll back changes or see what was changed/added/removed. It automatically commits changes when you install software, and you can manually commit changes that you make yourself (which can include comments about why you changed it, etc)

19:10<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy: there are other options on Debian too if you only need to be able to send. "aptitude search ~Pmail-transport-agent" will show a list of packages that provide the mail-transport-agent virtual package.. take a look at msmtp-mta, nullmailer, ssmtp for example
19:10<TheNewGuy>Any preference on the simplest one? Or do they all require pretty much the same thing?
19:11<jmcnaught>the simpler ones i mentioned above don't run a daemon, but i still like using postfix for this. dpkg-reconfigure postfix gets you most of the way there

19:16<jrtc27>I would recommend you do the latter and give it a sensible name

19:18<TheNewGuy>How is it possible without it? (E.g. Internet Site)
19:19<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy: "internet site" means that this server will send mail on its own instead of relaying through a different mail server. It might work for you, but generally there's a few more things you need to setup for major mail providers to accept mail from your server
19:19<jmcnaught>like reverse DNS PTR record, SPF, DKIM
19:20-!-KOJIbKA [~nikobit@] has joined #debian
19:20<TheNewGuy>So with smarthost is a must, otherwise my mail provider won't accept the mails?
19:20-!-Defaultti [] has quit [Quit: Quitting.]
19:22<jmcnaught>if you have a mail provider (for example mail is included with your shared hosting account or DNS registration), then using that as a smarthost/relay will make it a lot easier to get your mail delivered than having it delivered directly from your server (which is what internet site configures)

20:21<jmcnaught>matt__: according to support for this card was added in linux 4.1. I don't know if the driver was backported to the stock jessie kernel (3.16) but you may need to install a newer kernel from jessie-backports

20:23<jmcnaught>!bdo kernel
20:23<dpkg>Newer kernels for Debian stable releases are available from the "jessie-backports" repository. Ask me about <jessie backports> to modify your sources.list, then run «aptitude update». To install the current backported kernel: «aptitude -t jessie-backports install linux-image-`uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,'`». To list available backported kernel image packages: «aptitude search '?narrow(~nlinux-image,?origin(Debian Backports))'».
20:23<matt__>ah good catch, i saw it was supported on another website, but there was no mention of kernel
20:23<jmcnaught>there's also a newer firmware package in jessie-backports: firmware-misc-nonfree
20:23<matt__>ok thank you i'll investigate this
20:25<jmcnaught>oh wait, never mind about the firmware package, but you will probably want the newer firmware-iwlwifi from jessie-backports

21:05-!-pencilandpaper [] has joined #debian
21:05<TheNewGuy_>Can someone explain this to me with english terms?
21:06<jmcnaught>matt__: that command should simply install a new linux-image-4.5.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 package and leave the stock linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 package there so that both are options in the grub menu. i don't see the grub menu very often, was there an advanced sub menu?

21:06<matt__>yes i can edit the boot command
21:07<matt__>or take control at the grub pompt directly
21:07<Arcade>only see CDROM device jmcnaught I will look further
21:07<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy_: this question is asking you for the address of the server your server will relay mail to, and it is saying if anything other than default port 25 is used you must use two colons
21:08<TheNewGuy_>So I do a lookup for, exemple, google's MX records?
21:09<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy_: here you would use the same information that you would use for outgoing mail settings in a mail client like Thunderbird
21:10<TheNewGuy_>Ok... still not sure I understand. Is this where I put the information of the mail provider I will send the emails to (E.g. gmail)?
21:11-!-baumas [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:12<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy_: you're basically configuring the MTA on your server to act like a client with gmail (which will send the messages on behalf of your server)
21:12<matt__>jmcnaught: so i should be able to replace "4.5.0-0.bpo.1" by "3.16.0-4" in the boot command to boot back on the previous image?
21:13<TheNewGuy_>I understand that last piece, I still don't get what would be the answer?
21:16<TheNewGuy_>I'm looking at pictures of outgoing mail server settings and I still don't get it.

21:17<Devastator_>jmcnaught so you are here too :) anyway, just to say thank you and I think I've solved my problems, I've deleted VM's LV and created a new one, then netinst worked smoothly
21:20<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy_: you'd need to check the gmail help pages. Whatever "" you would use to configure outgoing mail in a mail client like Thunderbird or Evolution is what you'd be using here (gmail might want you to use a specific one for this purpose, you'll need to check their help/support pages)

21:21<jmcnaught>matt__: i'm installing a backports kernel in a VM to see what happens. so far aptitude didn't remove the old kernel
21:22<Devastator_>jmcnaught I think I've created it at some point with a newer kernel (from backports), anyway, it's running fine now hehe

21:22<TheNewGuy_>Thunderbird, with my gmail, but it wasn't that complicated. I think there was an option where you would just select your email provider
21:22<TheNewGuy_>or it would do it auto
21:24<jmcnaught>matt__: yeah, so on grub menu go to "advanced" and it should list the old 3.16 kernel there
21:25<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy_: you probably just need to use the same settings you have setup for outgoing mail in thunderbird, but you should refer to gmail help/support to make sure that you can still use a gmail account to send emails for other domains
21:25<matt__>yes i successfuly booted by rewriting the boot command with 3.16.0-4
21:25<TheNewGuy_>Its working, I just needed to add the MX record's IP from my provider.
21:25<TheNewGuy_>Its working with tutanota right now
21:26<jmcnaught>matt__: oh.. well all i did was go to "advanced options for ..." and select the older one

22:00<nezZario>Hey guys. I just installed lua 5.3 on a debian machine, and it provides the executable 'lua5.3'. What is the PROPER way to make it so I can just type 'lua xxx' and it calls that binary? I know I could just say: ln -s /usr/bin/lua5.3 /usr/local/bin/lua but that just doesn't seem like "the right way".
22:00<nezZario>Seems like I should use update alternatives or something like that perhaps?
22:01<jmcnaught>TheNewGuy_: maybe you'll find the msmtp-mta package easier than exim4? The Arch wiki has an overview of setting it up (but you should also refer to the man pages and info in /usr/share/doc/msmtp-mta because the Arch version is probably newer than the Debian one)
22:04<jmcnaught>nezZario: there's a lua5.3 package in jessie-backports. if that's not suitable for some reason, i would just make the lua5.3 symlink in /usr/local/bin as well

22:18<jmcnaught>nezZario: i'm assuming you installed lua5.3 from source or a tarball, and did not use the package in jessie-backports (which is what i'm recommending)
