rodarvusfabbione, I added a patch for pci domains support to xorg-server on dapper-updates09:45
rodarvus(this patch was requested by ben, for a customer, I think)09:46
fabbioneok09:46
fabbionefeh09:46
rodarvusunfortunately this patch breaks X for a few configurations, so I'm reverting it, for the moment09:46
rodarvus(actually, I'm test building it locally, before the upload)09:46

Mithrandirwe're aiming for most-duplicated bug report?04:37

rodarvusMithrandir, yes, I think kdrive could be built by xorg-server indeed. I haven't checked the source code inside xorg-server to be sincere, but it surely deserves an investigation05:35
rodarvusbasically the reason I haven't done that before is because there was a reasonable chance the version of kdrive inside xorg-server was crap (and I didn't have had much time to deal with it yet)05:36
rodarvusMithrandir, we have the current version of all xapps05:37
rodarvusI intended to sync them initially, but found out debian was seriously outdated on this regard05:38
Mithrandirrodarvus: I just did a build of xorg-server with --enable-kdrive and the server seems to work fine for me at least.05:38
rodarvuswhat is the difference of --enable-kdrive and --enable-xephyr05:40
rodarvus(I built it locally too, but didn't tested yet)05:40
Mithrandirxephyr is one of the kdrive servers05:40
rodarvusisn't it the server we want/need?05:41
MithrandirXsdl is another05:41
Mithrandir(Xvesa another, Xfake a third, etc)05:41
Mithrandiryes, if we want to enable any kdrive servers, Xephyr is the one we want.05:41
MithrandirI don't think we'd want any others.05:41
rodarvusagree05:42
Mithrandirit'd fix 57077 too05:43
MithrandirI can't find the version of kdrive in the server though.. might need to talk to rburton about that.05:44
rodarvusright05:44
Mithrandir(whether xorg-server is newer than xserver-kdrive or not)05:44
rodarvusit is inside hw/kdrive I think05:44
rodarvusbut it breaks05:44
rodarvus(build breaks, I mean)05:44
Mithrandirworked for me05:44
Mithrandirdo you have a build failure now?05:44
rodarvusI built entering obj-*/hw/kdrive + make (after debuild with --enable-xephyr)05:45
rodarvusI expected it to build automatically during the .deb build, but it didn't happened05:45
Mithrandirdid for me05:46
Mithrandiroh, do --enable-kdrive05:46
Mithrandirit'll give you a xephyr server05:46
rodarvusoh, nice05:46
Mithrandirwithout, it won't build any of the kdrive stuff, AIUI05:46
=== tom_ [n=tom@host-84-9-130-207.bulldogdsl.com] has joined #ubuntu-x
tom_hi chaps, after that xserver-xorg-core update broke my x, I have tried everything suggested on the forum and in #ubuntu but cant get my xserver running05:58
tom_probably due to my having messed up the xserver installation before realising that this was a general ubuntu problem05:59
tom_currently my xserver error log says:  (EE) no devices detected05:59
tom_Fatal server error05:59
tom_no screens found05:59
tom_what should I do?06:00
ubugblaNew bug: #57308 in xorg "Xorg and ATI X600 - RV370/380 (5B62) doesn't work" [Untriaged,Unconfirmed]  http://launchpad.net/bugs/5730806:00
rodarvustom_, it looks like you are still running the broken version of xserver-xorg-core.06:00
tom_rodarvus: I tried  upgrading to 10.4 and downgrade to 10.0 06:01
rodarvustom_, sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core:1.1.0.2-0ubuntu10.206:01
rodarvusupgrading to 10.4 should fix you problem, indeed06:02
tom_I'll run that again just check06:02
rodarvusit was published to the archive, and most (all?) mirrors should already have it by now06:02
tom_but I think I may have caused another problem by removing xserver-xorg before following the instructions06:04
tom_I tried to reinstall but I think I may have lost some packages06:04
Mithrandirthat shouldn't cause any problems, I'd think.06:04
tom_rodarvus:  is "sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core:1.1.0.2-0ubuntu10.2" a typo?06:05
tom_I thought it was 10.406:05
tom_and that doesnt seem to work06:05
rodarvusit is 10.4. the only reason I asked you to install 10.2 is because I don't know which mirror you are using - your mirror could be outdated and that would let you start X as usual06:06
tom_but doing apt-get install xserver-xorg-core=1:1.0.2-0ubuntu10.4 works06:07
tom_and says is already the newest version installed06:07
tom_rodarvus: I think you missed the "=" ?06:08
tom_when I insert that and try with 10.2 it says that version is not found06:09
rodarvustom_, yes, I did, please add it back :)06:10
tom_rodarvus:  I added it, but 10.2 aint found and 10.4 says I've already got the newest version installed06:11
rodarvuswhat 'dpkg --list xserver-xorg-core' returns for you? (please output only the relevant line)06:12
tom_erm, what is the relevant line?06:14
tom_under version is says 10.406:15
rodarvusso you already got the latest version. if X is not working, its another issue (probably unrelated to 10.3)06:17
tom_rodarvus: the whole line is: xserver-xorg-core 1.0.2-0ubuntu10.4 X.Org X server -- core server06:17
rodarvusright06:17
Mithrandirtom_: you could try doing dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg to reconfigure the X server again.06:18
tom_ok, yes, that what I thought, somewhere along the line I created another issue whilst trying to fix this one06:18
tom_Mithrandir: done that a few times already06:18
tom_any idea how to go about this other problem, whatever it is?06:18
tom_+ fixing06:19
tom_what causes the no screens found error normally?06:19
Mithrandircan you put your xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log in a pastebin somewhere?06:19
tom_is there a command I can to re-install everything that x needs to function properly06:19
tom_Mithrandir: yes, let me just copy them over to this machine...06:20
tom_http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/2141006:24
tom_http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/2141106:25
tom_Mithrandir: here you go http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/21410 http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/21411 :)06:27
Mithrandirtom_: looking at them.  The network here isn't the quickest one around06:28
rodarvustom_, even tough dpkg believes you are running 10.4, it seems you are really running 10.306:28
tom_okay ??06:28
rodarvusis there any chance you --forced it somehow?06:28
tom_yes06:28
tom_I think I may have tried a -f at some point if that is what you mean?06:29
rodarvusdownload http://people.ubuntu.com/~rodarvus/packages/dapper/xorg-server/xserver-xorg-core_1.0.2-0ubuntu10.4_i386.deb06:29
rodarvusinstall it (dpkg --install ...)06:29
rodarvus...06:29
rodarvusprofit!06:29
Mithrandirrodarvus: any reason why the Xorg.0.log doesn't include the full Ubuntu version number?06:29
rodarvusMithrandir, not really, actually06:29
rodarvusand indeed, it would be really helpful06:29
tom_rodarvus: I've tried that before, but I'll try it again...06:29
tom_same problem persists06:31
tom_rodarvus: as you (?) pointed out, it would appear that I have some other problem, shall I submit a new bug?06:33
tom_or have you got any more ideas of other things to try?06:34
tom_is there a command I can to re-install everything that x needs to function properly?06:34
rodarvusthere is nothing else easily apparent from your Xorg.0.log file06:34
rodarvusplease follow the steps in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DebuggingXAutoconfiguration06:34
rodarvusthere  is quite a lot of helpful information on this page06:35
rodarvusand eventually if the informations there doesn't fix your problems, it teaches you on how to prepare a proper bug report06:35
