<p4r4>arm support would be nice. ^_^
<youpi>* support would be nice
<youpi>contributions welcome
<p4r4>would love to but I suck at C
<youpi>that's not something that can't be fixed
<p4r4>Trying to fix it for like 15 years now. ^_^
<youpi>I used to suck a lot at C, too
<p4r4>Last couple months I follow mailing list closely - so who knows
<p4r4>time to bed. nighty, night.
<VedantT>I am curious about group locking in a vm, is it due to another process modifying group information or the user being non-root? I tried creating a new group but I keep receiving these errors:
<VedantT>root@debian-hurd: ~# adduser test
<VedantT>Adding user 'test' ...
<VedantT>Adding new group 'test' (1001) ...
<VedantT>groupadd: cannot lock /etc/group; try again later.
<VedantT>adduser: '/usr/sbin/groupadd -g 1001 test' returned error code 10. Exiting.
<VedantT>I tried manually creating the user group and assigning a user ID:
<VedantT>groupadd -g 1001 test
<VedantT>useradd -u 1001 -g test -m -s /bin/bash test
<VedantT>Still does not work:( any suggestions?
<youpi1>oh, that's surprising
<youpi1>just to make sure, which version of passwd do you have (dpkg -l passwd)
<youpi1>normally such a lock would not survive a reboot, so at worse you can just reboot and that should "fix" it, but I guess you already tried that?
<youpi1>perhaps try to `apt-install passwd` so as to get the latest version
<youpi1>possibly that older version was using an older lock protocol which is bogus
<youpi1>(latest version is 1:4.13+dfsg1-1+b1)
<VedantT>Thanks! I rebooted the system again I'll see it the newer version fixes it. I see would running apt-get -f install, check for any new updates and builds?
<youpi1>-f install does not actually check for updates
<youpi1>it's `apt upgrade` that does it
<VedantT>I fixed it
<VedantT>thank you
<youpi1>VedantT: btw, just to make sure: we meet 3h from now, right ?
<youpi1>for some reason it seems that the last ics I got from you only starts on july 20th :)
<VedantT>I thought it was 1hr 30mins per UTC +2
<VedantT>4.30 to 5.30 was it?
<youpi1>in utc+2 it was 18:00 to 19:00
<youpi1>thus 21:30 - 22:30 in utc+5:30
<youpi1>but we can also meet between 4:30 and 5:30 in utc+2, I'm available
<VedantT>I see then it should be 3 hours my bad! I will update the meet dates asap
<VedantT>I would be available to meet in an hour :) Additionally, any installation, builds and navigation has to be done from the root?
<youpi1>installation needs to be done as root, yes. But builds you can do it as non-root
<youpi1>and navigation as non-root too
<damo22>welcome VedantT
<damo22>its bad timezone for me though, i need to go to sleep now
<damo22>not that it matters
<youpi1>VedantT: so we can meet now ?
