There is a document in ./src/libpsi/iconset/ on how to create those files - just zip the icons and an xml file and rename it to something.jisp. Now, I'm not sure how and where to recreate them at the build-time.12:53

persiaJazzva: It looks like voip/callslogdialogbase.* was my trigger for the generated files.  Separately, I don't see the .jisp files at a quick glance, but it appears that they should be generated by the upstream build process (which might need a patch), as I don't imagine the psilib binary format is the "preferred format for modification".01:02
persiaJazzva: If you need to build the .jisp files, it looks to me like the procedure is 1) copy the right things to a directory, 2) zip them, and 3) rename.  Build-depending on zip should be sufficient to ensure you have the necessary tools, although some effort may be required in the build process.01:04

minghuaHello there persia.  How is REVU day going?01:07
persiaJazzva: Ideally, you want to find out which program generated them, and have them regenerated during the build process.  This may already be done (check if the timestamps change during build).  If it must be done fresh, I suggest coordination with upstream, as there may have been modifications post-generation (in which case adding copyright declaration and licensing information would be appropriate, perhaps with a note that it's based on code gen01:08

ScottKpersia: Not at the speed of light.01:14
teer2Hello - I am communicating with the Democracy Player maintainers about the conflicts with the current versions of their software in Ubuntu.  I have a couple questions about versions and how MOTU works.  First, is 0.9.6 the version that will be in Gusty ?  (This is the version currently displayed on LaunchPad.)01:15
persiaScottK: Nope, roughly at the rotational velocity of ground level of the earth (which I may not have calculated correctly: minghua is checking).01:15
Jazzvapersia: Ok, I'll check it with the upstream author. I don't know what can I do about number 5 (FtBFS on 64-bit arechitectures (rtprandom.cpp: In constructor RTPRandom::RTPRandom(): rtprandom.cpp:56: error: cast from RTPRandom* to u_int32_t loses precision)). Should I just inform the upstream author about this?01:15
persiaHm.  Yes, it appears that 24 != 86400.  Sorry.01:15
minghuapersia, ScottK: my calculation gives ~465 meter/second.01:15
ScottKPlus since he's not at the equator, it's less.01:15
minghua(yeah, at equator)01:16
ScottKDid you take into account your latitude?01:16
persiaJazzva: Informing upstream is good.  In the meantime, you want to restrict the architectures for which the binary is created in debian/control01:16
minghuaNo.  Partly because I don't know my latitude off hand. :-P01:16
minghuateer2: Currently gutsy has 0.9.6, yes.  But it's not necessarily what will be when gutsy is released.  It's still under heavy development.01:18
persiateer2: Yes.  The current target for gutsy is 0.9.6 (revision 1ubuntu1).  This may change as development continues, up until UpstreamVersionFreeze01:18
minghuaYay, beats persia on answering questions. :-P01:19
persiaminghua: That's easy.  I'm slow :)01:19
teer2minghua: Thanks for your response.  Second question - DP player is recommending Ubuntu users to move away from the Synaptic specified version in Feisty by adding the DP repository.  This seems not to be the recommended and supported way to do software updates (which would be to pass the patches through MOTU and into Synaptic or future versions.  Am I correct?01:19
teer2Basically, are they causing problems for Ubuntu users by trying to circumvent MOTU processes?01:20
Burgundaviateer2: to a certain extent yes01:21
persiateer2: It's not recommended, nor supported.  Whether it causes problems or not depends very much on how closely upstream tracks Ubuntu changes.  Working with us it usually easier than working to match us, and users will generally have a better experience.01:22
minghuateer2: They are using distinctive version numbers (-XubuntupcfY).  So while it's unfortunate, I don't see an easy way to change the situation, and I'm personally fine with the status quo.01:22
Jazzvapersia: Ok. #6: I think the Minizip source is available at ./src/tools/zip/minizip. I suppose I should mention the whole path in debian/copyright.01:22
minghuateer2: They also currently only provide packages for dapper/edgy/feisty, not gutsy.01:22

=== matthew_ [n=matthew@c-69-143-121-184.hsd1.va.comcast.net] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaJazzva: Also, does minizip create zip archives?  It may be that minizip is used by the build process to generate the jisp files (which would make things easy).01:23
persiaminghua: Yes, but upstream might also choose to use such versioning...01:23
Jazzvapersia: Dunno... I'll try to find out.01:24
teer2persia: If the dependencies for DP 0.9.6 are correct in the launchpad info, then DP 0.9.6 upgrade will also require new glibc versions, among other packages.  If true, then I would think this causes other issues.  So, I was concerned about their procedures.01:24
minghuapersia: Hmm, I am confused.  Which upstream?  Is www.getdemocracy.com not upstream for democracy player?01:25
minghuateer2: What DP 0.9.6 upgrade are you talking about?  Feisty system with unofficial package upgrading to gutsy?01:26
teer2I made a bit of a fuss on the DP forums, and I got a response that DP 0.9.8 (next version) will support Feisty and Dapper (does that mean the DP versions included with those releases, I am not sure).01:26
Jazzvapersia: After a quick look at minizip.c and variables/strings used I think it can create zip archives using Zlib. I'll take a look if it's used for the making of .jisp files.01:26
teer2minghua: No, I mean the 0.9.6 upgrade through the DP repository01:26
persiaminghua: -1ubuntupcf is close, but admittedly different.01:27
persiaJazzva: That would be great - that would only leave the .ui -> .h/.cpp files to still chase :)01:27
minghuapersia: Personally, as long as I can recognize unofficial package version numbers from bug reports, and mark them invalid, I don't care.01:28
minghuateer2: Do they provide upgrades?  I see that dapper/edgy/feisty are in different directories, so changing /etc/apt/sources.list seems needed.01:29
Jazzvapersia: I guess :). And the last one I need help with is #8. Did you mean to make a multi-package with portaudio and jabbin in it?01:29
teer2minghua: I don't know -- all my concern came from the fact that the version in Synaptic was invalid.  I am trying to resolve the issue by drawing attention to the discrepancy, because I do NOT want to deviate from the Ubuntu recommended packages.  I am trying to make things smoother for others who feel the same.01:30
minghuateer2: I think the best person to talk with is RAOF, he uploaded the last democracyplayer package.01:30
persiaJazzva: No, rather to investigate how jabbin uses portaudio.  If it's code from portaudio reused in jabbin, debian/copyright is correct.  If jabbin is linking against portaudio (and building it locally), you'd do better to try to link against the portaudio libraries distributed in the separate packages, as that way jabbin would automatically take advantage of fixes to portaudio.01:31

DarkSun88Hi all01:31
teer2One of the best things about Ubuntu, in my opinion, is that you can stay with the current latest supported version (which gets updated every six months), and not feel incapable of using your software.  With other distros, there is an incentive to deviate from the distro norm, and it always ended with "Dependency Hell" for me and my return to Windows.01:32
Jazzvapersia: Ok, thanks for all your help :).01:32
persiateer2: Best for us would be either 1) a compatibility repository for older versions of DP, or 2) a targeted patch for the older versions that would let them access the primary upstream repository.  For the first, upstream would have to help.  For the second, anyone could help.01:32
minghuateer2: My personal take -- If the upstream chooses to tell their users to bypass distribution's standard package management, that's unfortunate but their choice.  Any user who follows such advice is on his own, from distribution point of view.01:32

minghuateer2: Yeah, as persia said, we can try to improve on our side, but that requires a lot of dedication and communication with upstream.01:33
teer2minghua : I think the easiest thing to do is for DP to be aware of what Ubuntu users are using, and choose to support that version rather than alienate them and make them feel like they need to upgrade.01:34
minghuateer2: Yes, it's generally nice for upstream to agree that they should co-operate with distribution packagers, but not all of them do.01:35
teer2minghua : Tell me if I am off base though - I am not familiar with your procedures, which is why I came to bother you all!01:35
=== apacheLAGger [n=me@N798P023.adsl.highway.telekom.at] has joined #ubuntu-motu
teer2minghua: True, not all of them have a reason to co-operate, but DP depends on a wide range of users having their software running.  They do Bittorrent distribution, so they want to push DP on everyone.01:36
minghuateer2: You are on good track.  There just need to be a person who is both familiar with Ubuntu packaging and democracy player to work with both upstream and Ubuntu to solve these issues.01:36
persiateer2: It's a balance.  Upstream typically wants to focus on new features, bugfixes, and improvements.  Ubuntu has an interest in stability, maintainability, and integration with the rest of the system.  I think effort from both groups is necessary to have a good solution (as neither upstream nor Ubuntu can provide best support alone).01:36
teer2I think for Gusty (especially Ubuntu's push for GNU Free Software) that the DP situation get addressed on both sides.  DP is pushing for "video freedom" and it would be an excellent ornament for the Gusty software display.  Know what I mean?01:38
persiateer2: On a separate note, thanks for repeatedly working to help build greater coordination between upstreams and Ubuntu: we really appeciate your help.01:38
teer2persia: And thank you for your help with that too.  I apprciate your patience in dealing with my ignorance on matters!!01:38

teer2persia: Single-click Starcon goodness.  Ahhhh!01:41
persiateer2: As in that case, you'll want to find someone who has a specific interest in the democracyplayer package, to help with the Ubuntu side of the coordination (given that nobody has volunteered in the recent discussion).  You might try with some of the recent Ubuntu uploaders - you can find IRC handles from the launchpad overview page for each person.01:42
teer2You guys have saved "my hide" many times when I stopped myself from downloading a source tarball and screwing up my installation.  Instead, I take a deep breath and tell myself to stick with the supported software through Synaptic.  In return, I've been running Ubuntu way, way, way longer than any other of my distro attempts!  Thanks!!!01:43

teer2minghua: It is about time some distro had the "balls" to tell users: THESE are the versions you need to have on your system.  You want to change them, then jump through a bunch of hoops and, yeah, you're on your own.  Don't come crying to us when you muff it up and your OS is fubar.01:50
teer2minghua: Because when people read that, they say, "Oh yeah, I think I'd rather have my OS boot tomorrow than install the 'Commander Keen' game.  Thanks for the reminder."01:51
minghuateer2: Yeah.  The hard part is to really have versions that users need, as can be seen in this outdated democracy player package problem.  We have ways to solve this, we just need people who understand both Ubuntu packaging and democracy player to work on it.01:52
teer2minghua: And, that's what hardware vendors need to support a Linux OS.  You guys are doing really important work in getting widespread Linux adoption, too.  Okay, enough building you guys up.   Thanks for your time.01:52

From Qt site: "The Open Source Edition of Qt and Qt Jambi is freely available for the development of Open Source software governed by the GNU General Public License (GPL)." I'll check with the upstream author if that's what he used for generation. Looking at the timestamps I think they are not created at the build-tim02:38
Jazzvafiles at the build-time (not sure how and they're already provided in the package). Should I mention in debian/copyright that those files were created by Qt UIC (or some other program) and provide it's license?02:38

minghuaAlthough I don't claim familiar with these packaging details.02:40
persiaJazzva: For GPL code, it's much preferred that autogenerated code is regenerated during build, as that way those modifying the software are only required to modify the preferred source.  Also, it's not clear if there are additional changes were made by upstream (in which case, the lack of copyright attribution or licensing would be an issue).02:41
Jazzvapersia: Ok, I understand... Thanks.02:43
persiaminghua: Ah.  Yes, I'm likely confused.  build-time modifications to source control may be bad, but build-time modifications to binary control may be good.  I suppose whether the parrot change was good is an implementation detail, but I'm still shy of making assertions on this matter until I've a deeper understanding.02:43
persiaJazzva: As an example, the archive-admins regularly reject PDF files distributed by upstream without source in GPL archives, despite the presence of several PDF editors in the repository, as usually it's easier to make a PDF in an automated fashion, rather than drafting it directly.02:45

mohammadpersia: regarding the spliting, the current quran text is a simplified version of quran text. I mean due to some font problems a few characters cannot be shown corectly. in addition the quran text and translations are customized for Zekr, so I am afriad if I split it, others don't use the texts.03:05

mohammadpersia: thanks. I will resolve the copyright issue of the translations.03:07

ScottKRight.  The libqt4-ruby has some stuff to work around package conflicts in gutsy.04:37
persiaScottK: Hmm.  Good point.  Perhaps we just need to backport the Conflicts:/Replaces:?04:37

persiaScottK: For gutsy?  Hmm.   I'm not convinced that diversions are ideal, but perhaps it's required for this situation.  If the libraries are ABI compatible (required for diversions), and one is useless, deprecated, and removed, I'd think Conflicts: / Replaces: would be a cleaner solution.  Do you happen to have anything that could be used to test?04:40

ScottKjdong and doko__; Any thoughts about backporting python-central to Dapper?  It's non-existant so there's no risk of breakage and it would enable other backports...04:41
persiaScottK: Essentially, I'd suggest finding something that depends on the old package in Feisty, making sure it works, installing an updated Feisty version of the new package (with Conflicts:/Replaces: to replace the old package), and seeing if the test app still works.  If it's broken, you might need something with diversions, but if it works, just use Conflicts/Replaces, as we'd like all the users to migrate before gutsy anyway.04:42
ScottKArgh.  I think I know someone who I can talk into doing it who knows Ruby.04:43
jdongScottK: I'm not fluent in python packaging; gonna wait for doko to anser this one :)04:43
=== persia would like a tool to automatically translate po-translated strings from one language to another when the package is installed locally, as an aid to triage.

=== persia seeks a new package to REVU
LucidFox"missing manpages for movie-fakewavspeed, movie-progress, and movie-zoomcalc" - but upstream doesn't have them, these are undocumented binaries used by the scripts08:21
persiaLucidFox: That makes it a little tricky.  There are two common options here: You could provide a single manpage for all of them, detailing that they are internal scripts, and that users probably want to look at (whatever) instead.  You might be able to glean a little about purpose and usage from the script source.  Alternately, you could add a linitan override, but expect to defend this when asked by reviewers.08:24
persiaThe latter case should only be used when the scripts really shouldn't be used by users ever, although it may be better to put them in /usr/lib/$package/ rather than /usr/bin, which I think also makes the error go away (I'm not sure about this last)08:25

RAOFSo, who can read apport backtraces?  bug #126207 has one which looks temptingly like "your proprietary fglrx drivers suck at Xv"09:10
ubotuLaunchpad bug 126207 in democracyplayer "democracyplayer.real crashed with signal 5 in _XError()" [Undecided,New]  https://launchpad.net/bugs/12620709:10
persiaRAOF: I'd be happy to look at the backtrace with you.  From a first glance, it looks like GDK wasn't happy about receiving the X error.  Where do you want to start?09:13
eagles0513875RAOF: lol when doesnt anything ati related not sux lol09:14
=== dholbach [n=daniel@pD9E25DBD.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #ubuntu-motu
RAOFpersia: Wherever a good place to start is?09:16
persiaRAOF: OK.  I like to start with Stacktrace.txt, as I usually find it to be the most informative.09:16
persiaDoes anyone have any objections to us looking through the stacktrace in-channel?  We can move somewhere else if preferred.09:17
eagles0513875fine with me09:17
eagles0513875might learn something09:17
=== Fujitsu won't bite.
=== eagles0513875 might learn something
Hobbseepersia: please do09:17
RAOFI'm sure everyone would love an example stacktrace post-mortem09:17
=== Hobbsee gets out the scalpel
=== eagles0513875 preps for the operation
=== Fujitsu turns off the lights and runs off.
persiaRAOF: OK.  The part that looks interesting to me is #3, where we get _XError, in response to _XReply (line #4)09:18
=== Hobbsee uses said scalpel on Fujitsu
=== Fujitsu is disected.
=== eagles0513875 runs away fearing that im next for the chopping block
RAOFWhich then seems to call something in gdk?09:20
RAOFWhich, in turn, seems to want to log the error, presumably09:20
FujitsuIt shoudn't crash when calling _XError, but the error could be put down to dodgy drivers.09:20
persiaRAOF: Now, we don't actually know what caused this, so we'll go back a little further, so we can get an idea of what is supposed to be happening.  I'd suggest going all the way back to line #10, and we'll figure out what's trying to happen with xineAttach ().  I'm guessing this is in some python-xine API, so you'll want to figure out which package we need to inspect.09:21
LucidFoxwhat is meant by "Please differentiate - from (hy in the manpage "?09:21
persiaRAOF: Right - that's what the trace means.  Actually understanding it means we have to look at the code.  Often, it's just that someone forgot to trap some condition, and it can be patched to provide a nice error message.09:21
persiaLucidFox: \- is a minus sign.  \(hy is a hyphen.  groff turns them into different characters, so it's important to say which you mean in the source.09:22
RAOFpersia: So, xineAttach is going to be from the (pyrex'd) democracyplayer xine bindings09:22
=== RAOF quickly grabs source
persiaRAOF: That's where a little knowledge about democracy player is going to help.  I'm not sure if it's democracyplayer python code or xine python code.09:23
eagles0513875persia: so u would want to check both of them no09:24
persiaeagles0513875: Right.  We're looking for the xineAttach () function call, and hoping to have some idea of how it might have been called, as otherwise we have to go back even further.09:24
RAOFpersia: It's democracy (kinda) python code.  Specifically, it's C bindings generated from a python-like file09:25
persiaRAOF: That sounds like a python binding to a C library to me :)  Which file?09:25
FujitsuI think boost does that sort of thing.09:27
=== Fujitsu checks.
=== eagles0513875 wishes i knew more bout programming
persiaRAOF: OK.  When I look at that, it appears to just be passing the arguments to libxine (or at least I don't see any implementation).  Would that makes sense to you as well?09:28
RAOFYes.  That's pretty much what the file is trying to do09:28
eagles0513875persia: does that mean everything is fine but a problem with the ati binary09:29
persiaRAOF: OK.  Let's take a look at xine, to figure out what happens next.  We'll want to look for the function in line 9 from the libxine source.09:29
RAOFAh, the actual imlementation is in xine_impl.c, in the same dir09:29
persiaeagles0513875: No idea yet.  It only means we found the last place touched in the democracyplayer code.09:30
=== eagles0513875 is learning alot
RAOFpersia: line 21009:30
persiaRAOF: Good eyes!09:30
persiaNow, since line 9 is xine_open_video_driver, we can probably get some context about how we called xine from this file.09:31
persiai'm looking at line 239, and it looks to me like we're setting xine->videoPort to be the return pointer from the call to xine, and we're not checking for the response code.09:32
RAOFAh, yes09:33
persiaSo, one way to address the issue from this bug is to wrap this call (and probably also xine_open_audio_driver() ) in some wrapper that detects the issue, and gives the user a nice error message.09:34
eagles0513875persia: so from what i gather what is being called isnt returning a response09:34
RAOFIt also seems like we're requesting an X11 window, which seems odd given libxine is complaining about a XV issue.09:34
persiaBut, this doesn't actually solve the root problem, which is that we're getting a crash when we start xine under certain circumstances, so while we've defined a task for democracyplayer, we're not done with the stacktrace.09:35
=== apacheLAGger2 [n=me@N732P007.adsl.highway.telekom.at] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaeagles0513875: Actually, it crashed before it could provide a response.09:35
RAOFAh, Ok09:35
RAOFThat was going to be my next comment :)09:35
RAOFSo, now to libxine?09:35
persiaRAOF: democracy player is passing "X11" to xine, but democracyplayer doesn't necessarily understand the underlying xine implementation, so the X11 vs. XV thing may be a red herring.09:36
persiaRight.  Now to libxine.  Let's get the source, and look for xine_open_video_driver()09:36
RAOFpersia: Yeah, I don't know anything about the libxine internals09:36
persiaRAOF: That's OK.  We're only looking at the code.  Even if we can only understand 20%, we can probably follow the trace, and perhaps generate a bug that xine also isn't trapping properly when it gets a signal 5 from X.09:37
=== RAOF wishes his server with an adsl2+ connection was up.
=== eagles0513875 wishes there was something he could do to help RAOF
persiaOoh.  xine's not small.  Perhaps we'll not dig as far as X (which is even larger) then :)09:39
eagles0513875if my power goes out ill brb lol09:39
RAOFYes, until I've got a better connection I think I'll stay away from X :)09:39
eagles0513875RAOF: what connection u on atm09:39
RAOFeagles0513875: A university one09:40
eagles0513875RAOF: lol nice im on a 2mb down 256 up cable connection but what suxs is 10gb monthly download limit09:40
RAOFRight, so we appear to be after src/xine-engine/load-plugins.c09:42
RAOFline 158409:42
=== _16aR_ [n=dolanor@unaffiliated/16ar/x-367395] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaRAOF: That looks right to me.  Now we need to get our context.  democracy player passed some arguments, and the one we probably care about is X11 which is now stored in visual_type09:44
persiaNext, in this function, we're looking for _x_load_video_output_plugin, to try to figure out what's happening.09:45
RAOFWhich is just above the previous function09:46
=== Tonio_ [n=tonio@linagoraberri.pck.nerim.net] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaNow it gets tricky :)  The next thing that happens is a call to some function in xineplug_vo_out_xv.so, but we don't know the function name, as the stacktrace doesn't have all the symbols interpolated.  Unless we really understand things, we'll have to stop soon, but given that the error checking in xine_open_video_driver() isn't catching the problem, there's another bug here.09:48
RAOFSo, we're looping through the video plugins list, trying to find one which matches visual_typ.09:50
persiaGiven the content of the function we're examining, I think it's a good bet that we're probably crashing in _load_video_driver somewhere, having passed our visual_type (and probably having xine automatically do the X11 -> XV change when we weren't looking.09:50
persiaRAOF: That's my interpretation of the code.09:50
persiaThnking about it more, XV is probably the first plugin in plugin_lists that can provide X1109:52
RAOFYeah, it's probably preferred.09:52
=== fredix [n=fredix@] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaHmm.  But _load_video_driver is defined on line 1519 of this file, and the stacktrace doesn't show it, so the problem is probably earlier up in the list.09:53
eagles0513875persia: im installing democracy as we speak im starting to wonder whether its a kde gnome compatibility issue cuz i noticed it was downloading some gnome libs09:54
eagles0513875would the desktop its running on have anythign to do with it09:54
Amaranthnot at all09:54
persiaeagles0513875: There may be such an issue, but that's not the current problem in any way.09:54
RAOFI'm not sure how the backtrace can fail, but ok09:54
eagles0513875i just tried to run it and it just crashed on me09:55
RAOFSo, if it's higher in the list, where may it be?09:55
RAOFeagles0513875: Are you on Gutsy?09:56
eagles0513875ya 64bit09:56
persiaRAOF: The backtrace really shouldn't fail.  Since there's no listing of _load_video_driver, we're likely seeing a crash between lines 1537 and 1562.  Given that the problem happens in the plugin, we should now try to figure out which variable is used for the plugin, and if any functions in the plugin are called in these lines.09:56
RAOFWhy can everyone but me crash democracy??09:56
eagles0513875RAOF: what version u on09:56
persiaRAOF: You're working on it, the bugs are smart, and hide :)09:56
eagles0513875lol or they auto correct themselves at least for me they do sometimes09:57
RAOFeagles0513875: I couldn't crash either Feisty or Gutsy's democracy on 64bit (32bit I could, for some reason)09:57
eagles0513875lol im on 64bit gutsy and democracy just crashed on me09:57
eagles0513875i dont know if this will help 09:58
eagles0513875but this is the bug that i got democracyplayer.real crashed with ImportError in <module>()09:58
persiaSo, based on line 1557, it appears the plugin is being called node.09:58
persialines 1559 and 1562 appear to be getting some information from node, so one of these is likely the next step.09:59
RAOFYes.  I *think* we can discard 1562, since as I read it we're passing in "auto" as id, which gets NULLd by  155010:01
=== gizmo [n=gizmo@p578b708f.dip0.t-ipconnect.de] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaRAOF: One certainly hopes so :)  If it was 1562, it would mean the plugin couldn't even return it's own ID, which sounds like a larger problem.  Shall we look at 1559 then?10:04
RAOFHm.  I'm not sure why the existance of the xv plugin further up in the backtrace doesn't suggest the problem is further down.  Let's look at 155910:04
=== Subhuman [n=jack@host86-143-235-27.range86-143.btcentralplus.com] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaOK.  I think we want libxine1-plugins, but let me check before you clog your connection :)10:05
RAOFAren't they built from the same source :(10:05
persiaRAOF: conveniently, yes :)10:05
persiaI'm looking at line 1718 of video_out_xv.c, as this seems the most likely target, but it's not very informative.  Any other ideas?10:08
persia(to me it looks like it is supposed to return 9, without ever calling X or anything)10:09
RAOFI think that _load_video_driver is getting called, since the plugins are (I think) dynamically loaded.10:10
RAOFIn fact, are dlopened (in _load_plugin_class) unless we've got them statically linked10:11
persiaRAOF: The thing that confuses me about that is that line 8 of the backtrace is clearly 1519 in libxine, and the next level in (remember, the stacktrace is a stack, not a sequence) is in xineplug_vo_out_xv.so.  If we'd called _load_video_driver, we should be within that function (unless it already exited successfully) when we crash.  Perhaps there's something in libxine after _load_video_driver?10:15

RAOFNot in _x_load_video_driver10:17
persiaTo me it looks like the next thing is pthread_mutex_unlock (&catalog->lock) (which isn't in the trace), and then we go back to xine_open_video_driver.10:18
=== BugMaN [n=BugMaN@nat.cabi.uniroma1.it] has joined #ubuntu-motu
RAOFUnless, I suppose, the calls are threaded, and the error is not synchronous with the stack?  (I'm really not sure if this happens)10:19
persiaRight.  So, I'm still convinced the problem is either getting special_info or getting the id.  Getting special_info is two calls, which matches the stacktrace.  Let's also look at ID, to see if that's one call or two.10:19
persiaRAOF: All the calls are threaded, but if we were in a waiting thread, the last entry would be sem_wait (see threadstacktrace for an example).10:19
RAOFAh, cool10:19
persiaRAOF: More verbosely, when we're waiting, we're running the wait function, so when we crash, that appears.  This stacktrace is only for the thread that crashed (which is why I thought it was a good place to start).10:20
=== MagnusR [n=magru@c83-252-237-96.bredband.comhem.se] has joined #ubuntu-motu
RAOFFair enough10:21
persiaOK.  Both lines 1559 and 1562 (in src/xine-engine/load_plugins.c) call node->info, which appears to be defined on line 1718 of src/video_out/video_out_xv.c.  line 1559 wants the "special_info" value, and line 1562 wants the "Id" value.10:24
persiaSo, special_info calls vo_info_xv, which is how we get our match on video_type of X1110:25
persiaI don't see a reference for id, but as this is a special definition, rather than a normal function, we might be able to determine something from the header files.10:26
RAOFAh.  s/calls/points to10:26
persiaRAOF: Right.  Thanks for the correction (my C++ is sometimes enough, but I'm not an expert).10:27
persiaI'm guessing the interesting header is one of xine.h, video_out.h, or xine_internal.h10:29
=== Sindwiller [n=sindwill@84-75-101-114.dclient.hispeed.ch] has joined #ubuntu-MOTU
RAOFgrep says "xine-engine/xine-plugin.h".  And the id field seems to be the string "xv"10:30
persiaAt this point, it's probably worth looking in doc/hackersguide/hackersguide.html to try to understand things, as we're getting into deep xine code (sometimes passing through a library is quick, but not in this case).10:30
persiaRAOF: Excellent.  That would be it.  Do you see the possibility of two function calls, or does it look atomic?10:31
=== StevenK [n=stevenk@] has joined #ubuntu-motu
=== thekorn [n=thekorn@a89-182-5-46.net-htp.de] has joined #ubuntu-motu
RAOFIt doesn't seem to be function calls at all, just pointer dereference (but I'm not sure how that shows up on the backtrace).  And, no, they're literal strings in the definition, so that should be atomic10:33
persiaRAOF: A pointer dereference isn't likely to show in the backtrace at all.  It's just a list of all the functions on the stack.  Given that special_info was definitely pointing to a function, I'm thinking that that's responsible, but I'm not sure how we're getting to XvGetPortAttribute in libXv.10:35
eagles0513875persia: y dont u guys use a debugging program to make this a whole lot easier or it wouldnt make it much easier10:35
RAOFHm.  I don't see special_info pointing to a function?  It points to the "static const vo_info_t vo_info_xv = {...}" struct declaration10:36

persiaeagles0513875: If we could replicate the error locally, certainly.  Without that, I usually go by hand, which helps me learn the code (important if I'm going to fix it).  If you can help us to use a debugger to get here, please suggest how.10:37
=== Amaranth [n=travis@ubuntu/member/Amaranth] has joined #ubuntu-motu
eagles0513875persia: i dunno dude i didnt think you would have to replicate teh code locally i thought u could use the source go and run the debugger and see what if anything it would find10:38
persiaRAOF: No, you're right.  Perhaps the dlopen() doesn't actually count as a function call for the backtrace, and we're in the initialisation code for xineplug_vo_out_xv.  Anyway, let's jump ahead, and find XvGetPortAttribute10:38
RAOFeagles0513875: Incidentally, your import crash was probably due to missing dependencies (my fault).  File that apport crash on LP and I should be able to fix it easily.10:38
persiaI find three occurances in video_out_xv.c: 912, 1097, 120710:39

=== neversfelde|mobi [n=neversfe@] has joined #ubuntu-motu
RAOFpersia: Yup.  Lets find the one in the function most likely to be called in initialisation10:41
persiaRAOF: It's hard to be sure without a full symbolic backtrace, but I'm suspecting xv_check_capability()10:42
RAOFWhich would mesh nicely with "your fglrx drivers are crap" :)10:43
persiaRAOF: Yep :)  Now we have some strong indications that your intitial assumptions were correct, and also have identified an issue with democracy player not checking to make sure that it could create a xine video out.  Note especially the comment about the ATI drivers in that function.10:44
eagles0513875i despise ati10:44
persiaSo, there's probably a bug in xine at this point, but such a bug would be a workaround for broken secret drivers, so there's not a lot of incentive to fix it.  There's also some issue in X where it bounced trying to report an error, but again, it's hard to figure it out with what we have available (especially with the ?? right after _XError().10:46
persiaI'd say we can't get any farther without 1) downloading the X sources, and possibly 2) looking at the driver.10:46
eagles0513875persia: j/w woudl it be possible in gutsy to have the binary driver automatically installed if u have an ati video card and also have it make the necessary modifications to the xorg and what ever else need modification for open gl to work10:47
RAOFThe init function (open_plugin2) calls xv_check_capability repeatedly.  Colour me totally disinterested in attempting to understand the binary blob10:47
RAOFeagles0513875: System->Administration->Restricted Manage10:47
persiaeagles0513875: Possibly.  I'm not familiar with that codebase at all.10:47
eagles0513875i have an wiki on how to do it but it would be a huge improve ment and so much easier for those who dont know much about editing the xorg.conf and that stuff10:48
RAOFeagles0513875: It's possible in *Feisty*.  Well, unless you're using Kubuntu :)10:48
persiaRAOF: OK then :)  You should now have enough information to 1) get back to the bug submitter with an intelligent comment, and enough techinical details that they can follow up if they are interested, 2) fix the (very minor) issue in democracyplayer, and 3) not be stumped next time you get an apport bug .10:49
eagles0513875RAOF: couldnt that be ported to kubuntu10:49
RAOFpersia: Yes.  Thanks very much.  We should probably point to this log somewhere :)10:49

persiablueCommand: About socket++ licensing.01:20
blueCommandAh, hello :)01:20
blueCommandYes :)01:20
persiaBascially, it looks like the package has a very permissive "keep my copyrights" notice.  I've been convinced that it's acceptable to package this with GPL packaging, but I generally think that it's better practice to keep them similar, so if someone wants to use your packaging or patches with the code later, there aren't any restrictions.01:21
=== effie_jayx [n=valles@ubuntu/member/effie-jayx] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaThe largest issue that can arise with GPL packaging and a more permissive upstream license is that if any patches are developed locally, they need license exceptions (or dual licensing) to be distributed upstream.  If you really want the GPL for some reason, that's OK, but I just think it's easier to use a similar license to upstream.01:22
blueCommandSo I just write the same notice that the source has for the package licensing?01:23
persiablueCommand: Either that, or you can use a phrase like "the packaging is copyright 2007 Your Name, and may be distributed under the same terms as the packaged code, as described above".01:25
blueCommandThe Debian packaging is (C) 2007, Christian Svensson <blue@cmd.nu> and01:25
blueCommandis licensed under the same license as the sourcecode:01:25

blueCommandpersia, I will copy yours to be sure01:27
imbrandoni was under the pretty clear assumption that the patches and packaging could and most of the time is under seperate licenses01:27

=== fernando [n=fernando@unaffiliated/musb] has joined #ubuntu-motu
persiaimbrandon: Sure.  I've been convinced they may have separate licenses, but as noted above, it can make merging patches back upstream tricky.01:28

LucidFoxpersia: http://revu.tauware.de/details.py?upid=603801:30
imbrandoni dont see how the package lic affects the patch lic in any way shape or foprm though, if the patch isnt licensed it is NOT assumed to be the same as the packageing , e.g. i can package something bsd lic and have gpl packageing and have a bsd patch, no trickey merging there, guess i'm miss reading what you are typing01:30

LucidFoxare there any other reviewers present?01:32
persiaimbrandon: No, you're not misreading.  It's just that the "packaging" usually means the contents of diff.gz.  For a BSD patch in GPL packaging, this should require special notice in the patch, and perhaps an update in debian/copyright, as usually when BSD and GPL are mixed, the result is GPL.01:32

elektranoxpersia: can you explain me "debian/copyright claims 'Upstream Author(s)' holds copyright: this should be a real person."03:06
blueCommandIf the copyright holders are very many (as they quite often are in OS-projects) should I write something like Freenet Team?03:08
persiaelektranox: You need to actually list the names of the upstream authors in debian/copyright.  Usually this means looking at ./AUTHORS and the headers of all the source code.03:09
elektranoxhm I'm the only one so gar03:10
elektranoxso there is just me03:10
persiablueCommand: You can do that if and only if upstream refers to themselves that way in some copyright document in the tarball.  Otherwise, you need to list them all.03:10

blueCommandpersia, Woha, this could be "fun" :D03:10

blueCommandshould it really change? :S03:17
blueCommandsince that means that it changed from orig, should man-pages do that?03:17
elektranoxit's just a gzip -903:17
persiaelektranox: Does upstream really ship a gzip'd manpage?  Do they not have source that can be regenerated in the build?03:17
elektranoxI put it in gzip form into upstream03:18
persiablueCommand: Um.  Ubuntu needs source: bytecode needs to be compiled during the build process.03:18
blueCommandpersia, :(03:18
persiaelektranox: Ah.  In that case, the easiest way to fix it is to gzip it in the Makefile upstream, rather than just including it already gzip'd.  That's better for packaging as well.03:19

I'm planning on improving it a little more now, but was wondering about packaging it for Ubuntu as well (because I also want to learn how to do it!)03:58

frafu? 05:59
ScottKFirst, many packages are arch all, meaning they get built on i386 for installation on all archs.05:59
ScottKThose are clearly no problem.05:59
man-difrafu: launchpad knows if your packages doesnt build on some arch06:00
ScottKFor packages with arch specific builds, then if you are careful when you design your package, it should build.06:00
man-difrafu: you are expected to look at this for packages you are interested in06:00
geserdholbach: nxml-mode can probably be synced (the debian changelog looks like the summary in the debdiff)06:00
ScottKGenerally, if a package will build on one non-i386 arch it will build on all of them.06:00

ScottKfrafu: So far running all i386, I've gotten bit on an arch specific build problem and that was my bad as a packager for not understanding the difference between what I was doing in the arch independent and dependent parts of the build.06:02

ScottKdholbach: Speaking of which...06:25
dholbachScottK: yes? :)06:25
ScottKI think the thing that bugged me about that one bug I commented on was the debdiff.06:25
dholbachScottK: yeah, right - that didn't make much sense06:26
ScottKI think tracking bugs are great, but that new upstreams out to be reviewed/approved via REVU.06:26
dholbachI think it's fine to have bugs for them, so we can track them via the lists of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/CodeReviews06:26

=== ScottK wonders if there is a way to get debdiff to spit out a diff of just the debian dir.
dholbachwe have lots of ubuntu*-devs who don't want to sign up for REVU, so if they can just visit a bug I assign them and grab a package from a random URL (fine with me if that's REVU), that's good06:27
ScottKBut then someone needs to archive the upload on REVU.06:28
dholbachlet's hope we figure out something nicely including bzr and/or PPAs06:28

blueCommandAnt is apparently hardcoded to use com.sun.javah.Main, even though gcj has an alternative. The easiest solution is to add sun-java6-jdk as builddep, but is that allowed?09:01

hectorUbuHello, I would like to help packing and maintaining some audio and music apps for UbuntuStudio, would it be by joining motu a way of doing it? Some apps really have to be updated11:13
ScottKIIRC the packages are prepared.  The debate is to sync with Debian or to use an Ubuntu specific version because Debian did some odd stuff with documentation due to DFSG.11:13
ScottKDebian Free Software Guidlelines11:13
ScottKThe docs are DFSG non-free.11:14
ScottKSo at this point it's more of a policy question than a do work question.11:14

ScottKDktrKranz: Why did you remove the PO/POT files from the previous version.11:24
ScottKbroonie: True enough.11:24
Burgundaviavorlon: right, ok11:24

DktrKranzScottK, thanks. Since this is an out-of-tree module taken directly from php5 source, what should I do? there's no a "upstream tarball", it's php5 one11:31
DktrKranzshould I include it mentioning in a README.Debian-source?11:32

ScottKThis is a repacked tarball then.11:34
DktrKranzhas php some explicit rules about licensing?11:34
ScottKThis won't technically go through NEW, but if it did, the lack of the license would get you rejected.11:34
ScottKDktrKranz: They better or we can't distribute it.11:35
DktrKranzIIRC, debian rejet FAQ mentions somethin11:35
ScottKLook at the top level of their tarball for a file called COPYING.  That should be what you need to include.11:35
