02:25<NicolasBarbier>Debian 9.9, everything updated, kernel Linux 4.19.28-2~bpo9+1, Lenovo Thinkpad T440s. After a reboot about 2 days ago and probably getting a new kernel version or so, my touchpad stopped working after waking up from standby. Anyone recognizes this? Is it a known problem?
02:30<twb>NicolasBarbier: have you looked at dmesg yet
02:31-!-ao2 [~ao2@] has joined #debian
02:31-!-ao2 is "ao2" on #vcs-home #debian #cell
02:31<twb>NicolasBarbier: it's a fairly common problem for sleep/wake to not bounce the USB hubs properly, and you usually get a whinge in dmesg when such things are happening

02:44<NicolasBarbier>twb: I already rebooted (have to work), and don't seem to know whether dmesg is logged somewhere or is lost after a reboot?
02:44<twb>NicolasBarbier: try journalctl -k -b-1 to see dmesg from previous boot
02:44<twb>Won't appear unless you have /var/log/journal dir
02:44<twb>You can also try /var/log/kern.log
02:45<twb>NicolasBarbier: or just generally - check whatever logs you can find

02:46<NicolasBarbier>twb: "Specifying boot ID has no effect, no persistent journal was found", I have the impression that /var/log/messages includes dmesg, but hell that contains a lot of other crap too
02:47<NicolasBarbier>twb: /var/log
02:47<NicolasBarbier>seems to do the trick
02:47<twb>NicolasBarbier: /var/log/messages is a RH thing.
02:47<twb>NicolasBarbier: on Debian, by default, syslog messages go to /var/log/syslog OR /var/log/auth.log, and sometimes also an auxiliary file (such as kernl.log or daemon.log)
02:48<twb>If you "sudo mkdir /var/log/journal", you will start getting persistent journals as well. These are much easier to search, but require more space to store.
02:48<NicolasBarbier>how much is "more space"? MBs? 100s of MBs?
02:49<NicolasBarbier>will try it for next time
02:49<NicolasBarbier>that is a systemd thing yes?
02:49<twb>NicolasBarbier: it depends. Yes, it's a systemd thing. It has magic to avoid using up "too much" space, by deleting the oldest parts of itself.
02:49<drzacek>twb, define "too much" :D
02:50<drzacek>hello there btw
02:50<NicolasBarbier>right after wake-up: psmouse serio1: synaptics: Touchpad model: 1, fw: 8.1, id: 0x1e2b1, caps: 0xd002a3/0x940300/0x127c00/0x0, board id: 2668, fw id: 1545510
02:50<NicolasBarbier>psmouse serio1: synaptics: serio: Synaptics pass-through port at isa0060/serio1/input0
02:50<twb>drzacek: see /etc/systemd/journal.conf
02:50<NicolasBarbier>no errors
02:50<NicolasBarbier>maybe that is somehow different from normal and X doesn't understand the change?
02:51<twb>NicolasBarbier: OK that looks reasonable to me
02:51<drzacek>my journal dir is 2.6gb if that helps
02:51<twb>NicolasBarbier: that's saying you have a synaptics touchpad connected via the serial chip (i80642 or something), i.e. it's a PS/2 not USB
02:52<NicolasBarbier>drzacek: thanks, that's quite a bit yes. maybe I can change the settings to it rotates more quickly (if rotation is still a thing with systemd logs?)
02:52<NicolasBarbier>OK, thanks for the help guys. going to work now (have an urgent deadline). will try more next time I have the problem and I have more time
02:52<twb>NicolasBarbier: the problem is therefore more likely to be in Xorg, so next check Xorg.0.log
02:52<twb>NicolasBarbier: also, next time it happens, try simply doing Ctrl+Alt+F2 +F3 +F4 to swap to/from text console. That might suffice
02:52<NicolasBarbier>tried that already
02:52<NicolasBarbier>doesn't help
02:52<drzacek>I see all settings are #ashed out, but you can reduce time it is stored and max fs use or something there
02:52<NicolasBarbier>maybe restarting X would help
02:52<NicolasBarbier>but that would also suck almost as badly as having to reboot
02:53<NicolasBarbier>see you soon

02:55<ach>twb mh i have no journal dir but i think i always had journalctl as i remind i used it on every of my system i look cause just about a month few weeks old
02:55-!-jesopo [] has joined #debian
02:55-!-jesopo is "Jess" on #debian #rust-offtopic
02:55<twb>ach: you have /run/log/journal which doesn't survive reboot
02:55<jm_>also, with large journal files, journalctl is painfully slow to search in
02:56<twb>jm_: the index isn't just- oh, because it's structured more like a tape archive, ugh
02:56<twb>jm_: because if it wasn't tape-style linear, it wouldn't be able to do the whole "sealing" gimmick
02:56<jm_>twb: yeah, but it's highly annoying, it's like one is on an i386 again or something
02:56-!-skitt [] has joined #debian
02:56-!-skitt is "Stephen Kitt" on #debian
02:57<twb>It's certainly very in the "normal" use case of e.g.
02:57<twb>journalctl -u foo.service -u foo.timer -p warning --since='1 hour ago' --output=json
02:57<twb>very convenient
02:58<twb>--priority is what I miss most in grepping plain logs, because rsyslog doesn't save those by default
02:58<ach>mh yeah but i know i am a fan of ipv4 especially tcp/ip
02:58<twb>But yeah, I have about 4TB of /var/log/syslog and I don't even consider migrating that to .journal format
02:59<ach>more i get often tired of computer
02:59<jm_>I have nowhere near that big journal at home (it's on a PCIE NVME SSD) and it's super slow to search or even scroll to the end
03:00<twb>jm_: interesting
03:00<twb>jm_: what is your journalctl --disk-usage
03:00<twb>jm_: I usually use -b0 and --since so it never even opens the older ones. Biggest /var/log/journal I have is about 600MB
03:01<jm_>twb: I'll have to check at home, I am at work now (at work it's 545M, but here I use defaults - at home I have intentionally told it to store data for longer)
03:05<ach>i mean so much do the same such less own

04:37<simon__>So I'm having a weird issue on Debian 9, I can't start/restart ssh with systemctl start/restart ssh, the terminal just hangs, but service ssh restart works just fine. This means ssh wont automatically start on boot. How can I fix this?
04:37-!-melpy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:38<Konomi>are you tying to do this from an ssh session?
04:38<simon__>on local machine
04:38<twb>Konomi: that *shouldn't* matter because ssh.service has KillMode=something to avoid that particular footgun
04:39<twb>simon__: do you definitely have host keys in /etc/ssh/?
04:39<Konomi>that is odd then, does `sudo sustemctl -l status ssh` have anything useful to say when it happens?
04:40<twb>"systemctl restart ssh" and "service ssh restart" should do the same thing under the hood
04:40<simon__>this is on a fresh install, all ive done is apt-get update && upgrade and install openssh-server
04:41<twb>simon__: in /etc/ssh/ do you have ssh_host_*_key files ?
04:41<simon__>systemctl status ssh says Loaded: loaded and Active: inactive (dead)
04:41<simon__>gonna check
04:41<twb>ssh can be started in two ways -- via ssh.service or via ssh.socket + ssh@.service
04:41<twb>You might have accidentally enabled both
04:42<simon__>i have a bunch of host key files yes
04:42<twb>ssh.service (ahead-of-time) is better for security reasons (MaxStartups works), and is the Debian default unless you delete /etc/machine-id, which causes systemd to go into "break things" mode
04:43<twb>simon__: good. ssh_host_*_key files being present means this is *probably* not an entropy problem
04:43<twb>simon__: journalctl -b0 -u ssh.service -u ssh.socket --since='1 hour ago', see if anything suspicious is in there
04:44<Konomi>won't that need sudo?
04:44<simon__>no entries
04:45<twb>Konomi: unless you are a member of adm group
04:45<twb>simon__: run "journalctl --system" and make sure you see any logs at all
04:45<simon__>screen filled up with that one
04:45<twb>simon__: good, so you can read the logs
04:46<twb>simon__: what I would try at this point is "journalctl -fn0" (backgrounded or in another window), then "systemctl restart ssh" and see what appears
04:46<twb>if you have "good" and "bad" commands, compare the output between them

05:30<simon__>@twb unfortunately im not able to test that since im not actually on the local machine sorry. Im in a proxmox web shell. This issue seems connected to the fact that im running debian in a lxc container, as the same issue appears if i create a centos7 container. Whats even stranger is that i have another debian container without any similar issues
05:31-!-pavlushka [] has joined #debian
05:31-!-pavlushka is "Pavel Sayekat" on #debian #oftc
05:32<twb>simon__: oh, then it is probably because oom score adj isn't working
05:32<twb>Actually no, that would just prevent it starting at all
05:34<simon__>if i restart ssh with service ssh restart, systemctl start ssh sometimes starts working again, until the system reboots
05:34<simon__>i spun up a vm instead and everything works as it should in there
05:34<twb>what is running outside the LXC?
05:35<simon__>im sorry im not quite sure what you mean? proxmox?
05:35<simon__>im using proxmox to create containers and vms
05:37<twb>if debian 9 is running inside the LXC container, what is the OS that is providing the LXC container support?
05:38<supaman>so, to install remmina in stretch I need to enable backports, but that package relies on libssh-4 (>= 0.8.1) but the main repo has 0.7.3 and so apt refuses to install remmina, how to make apt install the 0.8.1 (which is in backports) version instead?

05:40<twb>simon__: do you know what debian that's based on?
05:40<twb>simon__: like, debian 8 or 9 or 10
05:41<twb>supaman: try apt install remmina/stretch-backports libssh-4/stretch-backports
05:41<simon__>Debian 9
05:41<twb>supaman: if you like living dangerously, you can "apt install -t stretch-backports remmina", which will allow it to get ANYTHING from backports, without checking first
05:42<supaman>twb: thanks, that did the trick :-)
05:42<twb>supaman: cool. For things like libreoffice, you have to rinse-repeat that many times
05:46<_kab>Is there an overview somewhere of packages that have been removed from testing recently? sysbench being removed caught me by surprise and I'd like to avoid that going forward.
05:47<twb>I think the canonical place is one of the MLs
05:47<twb>Whatever it is annoyed me last time I wanted it
05:48<twb>(via main page)
05:48<twb>That in turn links to
05:50<bremner>_kab: #debian-next is for testing support
05:51<_kab>Yeah the summaries help, could have noticed the link twb

10:08<eudc78>It looks like my hardware's guc/huc firmwares are only available on the unstable firmware-misc-nonfree package. If I install that unstable package on my stretch stable build (with kernel from stretch backports), am I riksing anything? Sorry, I'm a Linux noob but I don't think I have any choice if I want to enable iGPU hardware encoding on my J5005 CPU.

11:13<ach>!package manager
11:13<dpkg>You can use several package managers in Debian. From the console, aptitude and apt-get are popular tools. In X, synaptic seems to be popular. Whatever you use, be consistent and try to avoid mixing package managers. dpkg, which is not a package manager, gets told what to install/remove/etc by the package manager. See also <aptitude> <apt-get> <dselect> <synaptic>

11:20<eudc78>somiaj: Yes, it looks like only the unstable package has the "Intel Gemini Lake" guc:
11:21<eudc78>Now how do I copy the specific firmware I need from the unstable package? And how do I make sure which firmware is that?
11:21<somiaj>The firmware package shouldn't cause any harm, but one can also manually just copy the firmware to /lib/firmware, which is what I would do.
11:21<somiaj>you can check dmesg to see what firmware is failing to load, and I would get the firmware form intel vs the debian package in this case.
11:22<ach>just download and click
11:22<ach>not then dpkg
11:22<ach>dpkg -i *.deb
11:22*dpkg installs *.deb into ach's head with a bone saw and a few screws
11:23<somiaj>eudc78: but the package has no depends, so it could be installed safely. I just wouldn't want to chance other firmware updates don't match the kernel, hence why I suggest manually copying, but I don't see any problem with installing that single package form sid.
11:23<eudc78>Oh ok
11:23<eudc78>This is what I see in dmesg
11:23<eudc78>[ 4.150495] [drm] GuC: No firmware known for this platform!
11:23<eudc78>[ 4.150498] [drm] HuC: No firmware known for this platform!
11:24<eudc78>And it looks like unstable has these
11:24<eudc78>[ 4.150495] [drm] GuC: No firmware known for this platform!
11:24<eudc78>[ 4.150498] [drm] HuC: No firmware known for this platform!
11:24<eudc78>* Intel "Geminilake" GuC firmware, version 32.0.3
11:24<eudc78> (i915/glk_guc_32.0.3.bin)
11:24<eudc78> * Intel "Geminilake" HuC firmware, version 3.1.2893
11:24<eudc78> (i915/glk_huc_ver03_01_2893.bin)
11:25<somiaj>eudc78: please paste at or another pastebin.
11:25<somiaj>anyways, that error makes me think even sids firmware package won't work. "No firmware known for this platform!" sounds like the kernel doens't know of any firmware that works.
11:26<somiaj>the error you usually see when you have missing firmware, is 'failed to load firmware <path to file>'
11:26<somiaj>So the issue there could be the hardware and the kernel vs missing firmware. You may need to wait for buster's release and to get a newer 5.x kernel for that hardware.
11:26<somiaj>(from buster-backports and run buster)
11:27<somiaj>Anyways, nothing wrong with trying the sid package.
11:27<eudc78>Well, according to this guide: , you need to enable guc manually. I did that a few days ago and the error was different.
11:28<eudc78>Let me do that again now and show you the error
11:31<eudc78>Here you go
11:32<eudc78>How will I know which firmwares in the current package I have are being used by the system?

11:41-!-ribe is "ribe" on #tor-project #tor-dev #debian-next #debian
11:42<eudc78>Ok. But just to be sure, how do I know which current firmwares is my system using?
11:42<eudc78>At least from the firmware-misc-nonfree package
11:44<ach>well their two ways conform one dmesg + journalctl or modprobe
11:44<dpkg>Add module to kernel: "modprobe foo"; Remove module from kernel: "modprobe -r foo"; Define module options: "man modprobe.conf", "echo options foo bar=baz qux=quux >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf". See also: "man modprobe", "man modprobe.conf", /etc/modprobe.d/* , <blacklist>.
11:47<jhutchins_wk>eudc78: You can browse dmesg and it should show each one that is loaded.
11:48<jhutchins_wk>ach: Modprobe is kernel modules, not firmware.
11:49<ach>interesting i load my i think realtek dongle firmware with modprobe
11:49<ach>my stand
11:49<eudc78>Can I simply dmesg | grep firmware?
11:50<ach>grep intl ?? guc
11:50<ach>lel no
11:51<eudc78>No, I want to know which other firmware (other than intel guc/huc) is being used. So that when I install the unstable package, I'll know which will be affected
11:52<ach>simply install it afterwards ask?
11:57<eudc78>ok, i'm installing it now
11:57<eudc78>but i'm confused
11:58<eudc78>apt upgrade does nothing even though apt update already sees that the firmware-linux-nonfree (depends on firmware-misc-nonfree) is upgradable
11:59<ach>just then no
11:59<ach>click the link and download
12:00<ach>probalby you upgraded your system to sid
12:01<ach>no cross sources.list versions
12:02<ach>for even a browser i would forbid
12:03<eudc78>nope. i figured it out. i just adjusted apt preferences and just installed firmware-misc-nonfree manually
12:03<eudc78>no firmware-linux-nonfree metapackage
12:04<jhutchins_wk>ach: Yes, loading a module with modprobe will cause associated firmware to be loaded as well, but modprobe is not the mechanism that does that.
12:05<blast007>eudc78: did you have non-free sources added to your /etc/apt/sources.list ?
12:11<eudc78>yes I did
12:11<eudc78>I already installed it
12:11<eudc78>but no dice
12:11<eudc78>still no firmware loaded
12:11<eudc78>I'm playing with i915.conf now
12:12<eudc78>still nothing. I tried enable_guc=-1 and 1 but it still says there is no guc firmware
12:14<eudc78>I did confirm that the new glk firmwares are present in /lib/firmware/i915 though

18:38<GenTooMan>sarnold yes debian does have a fatal flaw in it's warnings because it tells you to shut something off and it killed the xsession ... which of course aborted the install
18:38<phazon>Diziet: you can try this, it's a bit of a hack tho:
18:39<jmcnaught>Diziet: is your firefox-esr package up to date? The latest version is 60.6.3esr-1~deb9u1, you can check with "apt-cache policy firefox-esr"

18:41<sarnold>GenTooMan: *maybe* that'd get you to a point where the rest feels more plausible.. if not, (b) is to remove all the non-debian packages and non-debian apt sources, and then try moving forward

19:47<drazil100>would anyone be able to help me troubleshoot an issue I have with installing mx linux here?
19:48<ninja>sarnold: as root?
19:48<sarnold>ninja: yeah
19:48<ninja>drazil100: sure, what's your issue?
19:48<drazil100>I am booting to an external stick and if I remove the stick (with the machine powered off) and boot into something else and then later plug it back in my system can no longer boot to it
19:48<drazil100>I have tried installing at least 10 times
19:49<ninja>drazil100: I think you didnt instlal bootloader
19:49<ninja>or maybe you installed it on the wrong drive
19:50<drazil100>I did. I tried all 3 options
19:50<drazil100>the problem only occurs if I remove the stick at some point
19:50<drazil100>I can power it off and boot back into it
19:51<drazil100>I can even boot into something else by choosing a different boot drive (I.e. without touching mx's grub install)
19:51<drazil100>but after I remove it I have to do a boot repair from a live cd to even get into it
19:52<ninja>are you using debian?
19:52<drazil100>mx linux. if I am in the wrong channel feel free to boot me I don't know where to go xD
19:52<drazil100>this is just where the live usb hexchat pointed to
19:53<drazil100>mx is debian based though if thats what you are asking.
19:54<ninja>I'm a guy who never minds where the question was asked. there is no boundaries I think. but yeah maybe if you ask it in mx, they better guide you.
19:54<drazil100>is there an mx channel?
19:54<sarnold>what error message do you get/
19:54<ninja>I hope there should be.

19:58<torify>There is just preview image available.
19:58<torify>This is sad.
19:58<ninja>drazil100: I'm a efistub guy tbh
19:58<sarnold>torify: here's a description of setting up rdns with a lightsail instance
19:59<ap4lmtree>i am using stretch, with my motherboards's intel integrated graphics, and an generic active dp -> hdmi, and my regular hdmi port to display two monitors. Often, i get flickers and i have to reset the settings to turn one off int he setting then turn it back on
19:59<ap4lmtree>if i got a discrete card, then i would less likely be having this issue right?
19:59<ninja>torify: I only install from stable as I have that one downloaded years ago but I always go for testing after installation and never faced a problem in testing

20:00<ap4lmtree>do any of you use multiple monitros with debian? i have multiple monitors with my windows box too, but on my debian box i am trying to figure this out
20:01<torify>ninja is this correct file for RPI3?
20:04<ninja>torify: I think its correct one, lemme check it in browser.

23:15<sarnold>it could be your drive ran out of remapping blocks
23:16<sarnold>as the drives notice bad blocks they try to remap the data within to remapping blocks

23:44<sarnold>maxrazer: hmm, it feels like it's probably pretty healthy. write error rate, reported uncorrect, error correction count, erase fail count, all look fine. it feels like a high unexpected power loss count, but checking my own systems I was surprised they were in the 40s.. iirc.
23:46<luizromario>maxrazer: what I'm trying to do is to compile a cross-platform project of mine for windows
23:46<maxrazer>sarnold, I think my system may not respond to wake up some times and I don't know what is wrong so I hit the power. Not sure if it is on and just cut the power and reboot.
23:46<luizromario>And run it on wine
23:47<sarnold>luizromario: I'd wager the WSL stuff would work more reliably than mingw
23:47<sarnold>maxrazer: oh. ew. :/
23:47<maxrazer>sarnold, It did that a few times recently. I'm guessing that is what it is. Or crashes maybe.
23:48<maxrazer>sarnold, Is there nothing the operating system could have done to avoid this?
23:48<sarnold>maxrazer: it could be worth a fsck, then run debsums on all the packages you've got installed to see if you can spot any errors..
23:48<sarnold>maxrazer: you'd have to know what went wrong first :(
23:49<maxrazer>I know it seemed to happen during running the Doom 2016 with Steam Play on Linux.
23:50<sarnold>maxrazer: poke around in the logs in /var/log/ and *maybe* you'll get lucky. I'm not optimistic though.
