@WinEunuuchs2Unix I think those mods resigned because of the appalling way Monica Cellio was treated, not because they didn't like the CoC, which hadn't been put out then
@WinEunuuchs2Unix why should he have to do that? He can already change his screen name, but he shouldn't have to do that to avoid being called "she"
1:13 AM
@Zanna So the CoC come out after Monica was fired as sort of a cover up? Eg say she broke the rules but the rules were created after the fact?
@Zanna Oh I didn't know you could change your screen name after it was created. Andrea can change his name by dropping the first name and keeping the last name. Or he can put "Mr." in front of it. There are lots of options if he his truly bothered.

I don't think there's any way to slice it where they can claim she broke any rule. Some attempt to summarise relevant events has been made on MSE

Q: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock

cookieNothing has changed that I know about. Upon running the command: docker ps the shell reports: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running? Exploring further i.e. with the daemon: I'm expecting to see either a list of running containers or...

@traducerad because your "module_exit" function is not correct?
I would check dmesg; that one is likely to report the actual kernel panic
9:46 AM
@Rinzwind what is not correct? Am I missing something here?
@Rinzwind No kernel panic or unusuam message in dmesg
changing the return type to void instead of int doesn't change anything.

@blade19899 WiFi issues?
@Fabby BLack screen on boot-up - need to reboot a few times before it will startup the login screen
@blade19899 Hmm... Haven't run into that one...

12:59 PM
I would suspect a buggy module, but it might be hard to find out which one it is
1:11 PM
@DKBose In light of the information in the OP's recent comments, I think the Wayland/LibreOffice question should be reclosed as a bug (which is actually the same off-topic sub-reason it was closed as before, though the original closure may be been due to the belief that it was asking about Ubuntu+1).
1:31 PM
@EliahKagan, done.

Q: Why does Ubuntu resolve the name `_gateway` to the default gateway instead of `gateway`?

Lucas GooddingWhen I run the route command, the default gateway resolves to _gateway. I can ping _gateway, which resolves to my default-gateway and replies as such. Why does Ubuntu 18.04 prepend _ to gateway?
