MrCholoDoes anyone know what the proper way is to create a systemd service and read from syslog write the logs out to the network? I had this in a service: tail -f /var/log/syslog | send_logs_to_elasticsearch but it the stdio from the send_logs_to_elasticsearch would be written to syslog, so it woul...

@WinEunuuchs2Unix Not sure about meta but as I mentioned in my comment, if you feel my edit isn't ok, feel free to roll back it.
Q: How to install apt on Ubuntu 10.10 with no dpkg

ITAPRTESI have a Tesla MCU (Media Control Unit - Center Display), that I have managed to gain root access to and I am looking to install APT onto it so I can install chromium. The MCU is running Ubuntu 10.10 on the arm v7 architecture. The problem is that there is no dpkg installed on it. So even if I c...

@Kulfy I have to recuse myself from judging. I'm just wondering if the previous title had more "click bait". Basically just fishing (pun noted) for a second opinion.

Q: Wireguard: packets returning from server get lost

Johannes MuellerI set up wireguard by now on one server (with NAT enabled) and on a client. When I don't route all the traffic via the tunnel everything works. As soon as I start routing all the traffic through the tunnel as described in https://www.wireguard.com/netns/#improved-rule-based-routing no traffic is ...

are we hacked from china?
@nobody No idea but the spam posts are taking longer to disappear than "normal".
It is annoying.
Well, you can flag the post as spam. If sufficient spam flags are raised on a post, the post disappears.
It's more effective than downvoting.
@DKBose Indeed it seems the posts actually need around 960 seconds to be handled
this rise only took place yesterday and today
probably due to a high influx of spam posts, smokey is currently going nuts and it seems it reaches the messaging limit quite quickly
@Videonauth this one's been over an hour. So I hope people flag rather than downvote: askubuntu.com/questions/1178296/…
11:11 AM
usually it takes an average of 300 seconds for a post to disappear
can you please link this one here
@Videonauth done. When Smokey's fully awake, the spam could be cooked in less than 5 seconds! Four automatic flags and two manual (I guess).
ok i just made 3 of them disappear
seems many people simply downvoted the posts and not flagged them
yes, now they are deletet faster.
me flaging as spam causes smokey to act
@Videonauth Most are gone! Good work :)
11:13 AM
as my account is directly connected with metasmoke/smokey
should be all gone tho, at least i found non on the first 10 pages of new posts
But new ones are coming!
So don't go away!
just checked in Charcoal HQ and you wont believe how many posts with the same content are running through the chat right now
from all over the network
I will check in from time to time :) still have to do some paperwork here at home :)
@Videonauth sure!
11:32 AM
I'm running out of Flags.
Hmmm I didn't know there was a limit!
@DKBose there is a limit for flag :) 20 for beginners and if you flag a lot you can get up to 100 but then its end
somehow around that values
@Videonauth hope I don't run out of flags! I've been flagging away for quite some time!
:) well and if, you did anything you could
It's usually less easy when Smokey is in top gear.
11:37 AM
well smokey is working over hours right now, we seem to get on each page of the network to get a new spam post every 3 minutes
Now I can enjoy Gibli
he gets rate limited already
no flag any more.
sends nobody 99 unused flags

@WinEunuuchs2Unix Well if I google "The WSL optional component is not enabled. Please enable it and try again", your Q&A is shown at the top
@WinEunuuchs2Unix @Kulfy but I play here a devils advocate, 65k people seem to have used a different search term beforehand. Is it really sure that people do such well refined search terms?
IMO people just "throw" the error messages on search engine.
12:46 PM
Chinese/korean/japanese invation averted on the FP :=)
@Rinzwind its not done yet
smokey is about 20 minutes back due to rate limiting

@WinEunuuchs2Unix I spent the last few hours reading about this. It's deeply disturbing. I'm not referring to the change of license but the other matter. I fully understand why several moderators, including at least three whose contributions I value, have taken the steps they did.

@DKBose Yes this whole situation is concerning, I'm not chipping in my two cents here because my opinion may be very unpopular and i not want to cause a stirr :)
6:22 PM
@Videonauth in the light of this chatroom being very silent: please do so!
@dessert err no, better not :) im not keen on getting a chat suspension :)
@dessert if you want to know my thoughts you can contact me in discord tho
7:04 PM
hi, is there anyone who might be able to help me with my cronjob?
it sometimes crashes and i want it to restart if it happens... is this possible?
7:54 PM
@ThelurkerLurker this rather sounds like you want to use a systemd unit instead
