TomaszDhi, I'm working for a publishing company and we need to have access as early as possible to the final gutsy i386 image, so that we can remaster it and release it in our magazine (about 5000 copies). 18th is the release date, but I'm sure the isos are built a day earlier right? is it possible to get them somehow to avoid the inevitable queues?12:57
pittiTomaszD: no promises, but we hope to have final images in a few hours12:58
pittiTomaszD: check the dailies tomorrow morning, they *should* be pretty much final12:58
pittiTomaszD: but as I said, we can never rule out emergency rebuilds for high-profile bugs12:58
slangasekTomaszD: we can make sure you have access to our candidate images, but please don't commit to pressing them until they're publically announced as final12:59
TomaszDpitti, alright. I understand. Thanks.12:59
TomaszDslangasek, sure I just need something to work on and then send to the office, it'll be pressed on the 19th, but I need time for testing my remastered copy01:00
TomaszDit would be downright insane having to do all this in one day01:01
slangasekTomaszD: sure :)01:01
slangasekTomaszD: well, as pitti mentions, the candidate images are published as dailies, so they'll be available here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/01:01
TomaszDI know that place already, yeah :] 01:02
TomaszDso I basically need to look here http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ tomorrow right?01:02
TomaszDand what is tomorrow for you, because here's it's already tomorrow (01:06AM)01:03
TomaszDlike, in 10hrs would be fine?01:03
slangasektomorrow for me is different than tomorrow for pitti, but he means the morning of Oct 16 European time, yes :)01:04

TomaszDalright, thanks again, will get the daily live in ten hours then and assume it's final, hope I'm not going to die a painful death because of that ;] 01:04
slangasekTomaszD: at a minimum, could you check that the md5sum of your downloaded image matches the released image once the release is announced, to make sure we didn't re-roll the image?01:06
TomaszDslangasek, I will01:07

thullyhi - does anyone here know who I should bring kernel regressions to the attention of?  Going from -12 to -13 (and-14) killed suspend for me, and my bug on Launchpad has had no response...05:20
Hobbsee#ubuntu-kernel, probably when tehy're actually awake05:21
Hobbseeif it was going to -13, why wasnt it raised earlier?  it's likely too late for gutsy05:22
thullyI reported the bug over a week ago and e-mailed several kernel-related contacts05:23
thullyand they ignored me (well, one dev told me not to e-mail him)05:24
Hobbseei'd assume that you'll have to take that up with the kernel team, as it's their domain.05:24
thullyyeah, these were contacts off the kernel team page... one person mentioned reverting the one patch that seems suspicious, but I can't even find the old code/diffs to do that..05:26
thullyOne question - if I applied for/got QA access, would my bugs be looked at quicker?  I've had many issues which I've attached extensive information and even patches that have gone unresponded-to for months...05:27
Hobbseepossibly.  quite unlikely05:27
Hobbseethe problem is that there are so many bugs for the kernel stuff, adn so few looking at them05:27
Hobbseeit tends to be judged by severity, rather than who reported them05:27
thullyyes, this is more frustrating because -12 worked fine, and then -13 messed things up05:28

lifelessthere is a dedicated channel, ubuntu-kernel05:28

lifelessI've had things sit for months too05:31

lifelessI find the best way, with kernel bugs, when the fix is known, is to get someones attention in #ubuntu-kernel, and say 'there is a fix, please look, tell me what is missing to be able to apply it'05:32
thullyI guess i'm curious how I could look at the diffs between kernel revs and try reverting some of the patches.  One of the -13 changes related to suspend/resume, and I'd like to try reverting that05:32

Burgundaviaone of those bits is package metadata09:10

Burgundaviaa 3rd major point is to move the idea of package stuff out of the distro silo09:12

Burgundaviayou are conflating the actual packaging with the UI bits that sit above them09:16
Burgundaviapackagekit is designed to solve the latter, autopackage the former09:16
mdkeliw: right. A good example is that the packagekit guys have recently been discussing questions about how easy it should be to add third party repositories which may endanger the system. Ubuntu developers have also been discussing the same thing, if they come to a different conclusion, how will the two be reconciled?09:16
AmaranthIt's more or less so every distro can do what we do with 'find a package that handles this mimetype'09:16
Amaranthand cross-distro consistency with the updater UI and such09:17
Burgundaviabecause every distro rewriting the updater is crazy09:17
Burgundaviaiven they all do 98% of the same thing09:17
Amaranthand if it gets to the level of gnome-app-install it's also so every distro has the same UI for installing applications09:18
AmaranthGUI applications, anyway09:18
Amaranthit's more or less everything we already do but with a better design and cross-distro09:18

Burgundaviawhich other ways?09:42
Mithrandirship anything you need over LSB yourself.09:42
stgraberpitti: looking at the logs, you added the 20071016 Ubuntu desktop at 08:33:32, then the 16.1 at 20071016.1. So it doesn't let you add the Desktop ones again as they already exist on the DB. I'll simply hide the Ubuntu desktop 20071016.1 and show the 20071016 so if we have a 20071016.1 for Ubuntu desktop today we won't have to add them again but simply reactivate them09:42
pittistgraber: hm, sorry if I screwed up; thanks for fixing09:43
BurgundaviaLSB is a very static solution09:45
stgraberpitti: just ping me if you have to add a new Ubuntu Desktop set today (with version number 20071016.1) so I simply reactivate the 20071016.1 ones instead of creating them again09:45
pittistgraber: I will, thanks (let's hope it's not necessary, though :)09:45

pittitkamppeter: I'm currently doing two more test installs (alternate this time); I'll check with those, too12:20
tkamppeterpitti, so then it seems that the CUPS startup script exits and the daemon still takes an unreasonably long time to start listening. Then the cups-pdf package would need to launch a background process to wait for CUPS in a loop to create the queue, which can happen half an hour later, if needed.12:22

pittitkamppeter: I'm doing several vmware installs in parallel, so it's slow and latent12:25
tkamppeterliw, years ago I had a similar problem and had reported an upstream bug then, which got actually fixed. Seems that now there are new discrepancies.12:26
tkamppeterpitti, and I have only native installations ...12:27
asacstgraber: i commented on it ... yes, just the trash.12:27
asacstgraber: its not marked as serious of course12:27
tkamppeterpitti, and there are two cases: "force-reload" probably does a "kill -something" on the CUPS daemon and "kill" does not wait for reactions, but "restart" actually kills CUPS and then runs "cupsd", and the command "cupsd" probably really only exits if CUPS really starts to listen.12:29
asacok bad news ... edubuntu install leaves me with a broken X ... ending in a console session :(12:31
tkamppeterpitti, so a proposed fix could be to not call "/etc/init.d/cupsd force-reload", but this would go directly into the higher impact restart, which kills running print jobs ...12:32
asacpitti: .. so here what i did: i did a live session and tried to enable desktop effects before install. live session downloaded nvidia driver ... now xorg.conf has nvidia driver, but nvidia glx is not installed12:34
tkamppeterpitti, but is restarting of CUPS required at all? From CUPS 1.2 on (we are at 1.3 already) adding a backend and/or a PPD does not require restarting CUPS, why does this package restart CUPS at all ...?12:35

asaccjwatson: evand: what info do you need before i reboot (read a few lines above)12:37
tkamppeterpitti, that is the case, replace the unconditional restarting by starting if it is not running and nuke the "sleep 3". Starting CUPS with "/ect/init.d/cupsys start" exits only when CUPS starts to listen (or when CUPS fails).12:37

cjwatson_asac: was this a networkless install?01:16
cjwatson_hmm, apt-install perhaps needs to learn how to queue until after apt-setup01:17
asac_cjwatson_: no the network worked through network manager ... the driver was successfully downloaded and insatlled during live-session01:18
cjwatson_asac_: in addition to installed_packages, could I also have /var/lib/ubiquity/apt-installed?01:20
asac_cjwatson_: from live session?01:21
cjwatson_I wonder if install_extras is just broken01:21
cjwatson_oh, nvidia-glx* isn't on the Edubuntu CD01:22
cjwatson_fixing this properly will probably have to wait for networkless-installation-fixes in hardy; any attempt to fix it now stands a good chance of breaking other things :-(01:23
asac_cjwatson_: isn|t it non-free?01:23
cjwatson_we have other restricted packages on our CDs01:23
cjwatson_it's a real bug, but that code is horribly, horribly hairy and prone to breakage. I patched it up as best we could for gutsy01:25
asaccjwatson_: well ... but ending up in a console because one tried to enable desktop effects is really a show stopper imo ... given that most nvidia cards are probably affected01:27
asaccjwatson_: maybe we can prevent nvidia drivers to be installed during live session as a hack?01:27
pitti_liveasac: we could, but that would again require code changes01:28
pitti_liveI don't see how to do it with just CD mangling01:28

cjwatson_I'm confused about how they got installed, given that we now don't even generate the nvidia modules in the live session01:30
cjwatson_does Edubuntu have room to add nvidia-glx-new to the CD?01:30
pitti_livecjwatson_: yes, if we kill one or two langpacks01:30
asaccjwatson_: does ubuntu have that package?01:30

cjwatson_nvidia-glx-new is 5MB01:31
ogradaily-live is around 501:31
cjwatson_for the record, Ubuntu desktop CDs don't have nvidia-glx* either01:31
cjwatson_nvidia-glx-new is in the ship seed01:31
cjwatson_ogra: only the live CD matters here01:32
ograwell, we dont have langs to drop there01:32
asaccjwatson_: /var/lib/ubiquity/apt-installed doesnt exist in live session before install ... i will now reboot to the install i previously did and attach that file01:32
ograso it's a va banque game01:32
cjwatson_I'm not confident about this fix; I'd prefer a release note01:32
cjwatson_asac: odd, are you sure?01:32
amitkogra: see http://people.ubuntu.com/~amitk/edubuntu*.jpg01:32
asaccjwatson_: let me reconfirm01:32
cjwatson_apt-install should create it, and nothing deletes it01:32

cjwatson_it deletes that file on startup01:33
amitkogra: this is at a local (Finnish) electronic store01:34
asaccjwatson_: no ... i just opened the appearence dialog and then installed the nvidia packages through r-m01:34
cjwatson_asac: apt-installed won't exist until you've run through the installer01:34
cjwatson_installed_packages exists beforehand01:34
ograamitk, thats extremely cool :D01:34

pittitkamppeter: slangasek05:47
siretartpsusi: are you arguing there was no need for the change, or are you arguing that approach was harmful?05:47
iwjPlenty of people can upload without being able to commit.05:47
pittitkamppeter: you mailed him already, so that's fine05:48
psusiiwj: I agree, getting rid of dpatch is a good thing... how is that not accomplished by simply throwing it out and using git, then exporting the working tree to source package?05:48
psusisiretart: I am arguing that it seems to be a lot more complicated way to achieve that set of goals05:48
tkamppeterpitti, OK, thanks. Informing the users is important in such a situation. Too bad that users start testing only after takeoff.05:49
psusiiwj: you mean to like a public write only upload directory?  then just unpack that source tarball over a git checkout of the starting version, and commit to a new branch05:49
siretartpsusi: I have the impression you haven't had the chance to maintain large packages with extensive patchsets yet.05:49
tkamppeterI have the fealing that I got more and more reports of important bugs the closer it came to release.05:49
psusiiwj: can be automated and then the person who doesnt know about git doesn't have to have it or download the full repository to hack on the source05:50
pittitkamppeter: yeah, the old chicken-egg problem with testing :/05:50
psusiif the goal is to get rid of dpatch to make it easier to extract the actual working source and tinker, why replace dpatch with git?05:50
iwjpsusi: How would you know what the "original version" was ?05:51
psusisiretart: true... but I do track the kernel git tree regularly and have worked on a few packages in ubuntu that have a fair number of dpatches05:51
iwjSorry, you said "starting version".  That.05:51
psusiiwj: because it's in the .changes05:51
psusiand debian/changelog05:52
iwj.changes is no good since the next person doesn't get it.  changelog might work.05:52
psusiwhy would the next person need it?05:53
psusiit's only needed by the ftpmaster to decide which version to check out and unpack this source package over05:53
iwjOh, you want the ftp scripts to do it.05:54
psusiyea, the nmu can just get the current source tree, hack it it, upload it, and the ftp scripts can auto commit the changes to a new branch in the vcs05:54
iwjI'm not wedded to the proposal from Joey.  If you'd like to sketch out your alternative proposal more fully I'm sure people would be happy to hear it.  I don't think I can do a detailed analysis of it here though.05:54

iwjNote that your proposal seems to make the VCS repos much more tightly bound to the whole setup.  ATM they're kind of offstage.  That may not be a bad thing but it has political implications.  I think you should think it through and write it up.05:55
psusiyea, because the ftp scripts will still have to pull from the git repo they upload anyhow05:55
=== ringe [n=runar@ti531210a080-9260.bb.online.no] has joined #ubuntu-devel

psusiand just keep a copy of the git repo in each versioned source package?05:56
iwjWell, err, in some sense, yes.05:56
psusiwhat a colossal duplicate of data... and of course, it also doesn't allow people to collaborte committing smaller patches between releases05:57
siretartpsusi: does your proposal include having the complete archive managed in git repositories?05:57
iwjNot to say you can't have unofficial separate repos but they'd be more like unofficial separate branches.  They'd be in the same position as a current VCSless maintainer's random being-edited work-in-progress unpacked package.05:57
=== fcestrada [n=fcestrad@] has joined #ubuntu-devel
psusisiretart: yea, if you like git, then I say just have a git repository that auto export/imports release branches to/from the source ftp archive, rather than pack the whole git repository into each source archive05:58
iwjpsusi: Also note that you shouldn't just say "git".  People get religious about this kind of thing, so if you want to talk in terms of git you should at least say "I'm going to talk about git but other VCSes should be supported" or something near the bottom to avoid getting sidetracked.05:58
siretartpsusi: I'm not sold to git at all. In fact, I'm still trying to get myself used to it, but I don't think I'll ever love it. It seems to me that your proposal is going to force every uploader to the archive to use git, which is a, errrm, unrealistic assumption05:59
psusiiwj: well, not quite... if the maintainer decides to use the git repo, then maintainers of the package should be using the central git repo... that allows them to make and share incrimental patches between releases05:59
psusithen when the maintainer decides it's time for release... he tags it and it's exported to the ftp archive05:59
psusiyea, I'm talking git because 1) I'm familliar with it and 2) this patch being discussed talks about it heavily06:00
iwjpsusi: Yes.  That puts the whole group of them together in the position of a single VCSless maintainer, which is obviously good.06:00
psusisiretart: it would be up to each package maintqainer which vcs they want to use06:00
cjwatson_(in particular you don't need to be sold on git because I wrote a bzr backend for Joey's code.)06:00
iwjI mean, that's why people do it :-).  But the question is how to make this more accessible to others.06:00
siretartpsusi: however, on the 2nd thought, it seems to me that your proposal could be useful for a potential (small) derivative distribution, which needs to track changes in debian.06:01

ringeHobbsee: I have just installed from the Beta CD, then kept up to date with update-manager06:02
psusicjwatson_: I saw him claim that but I can not believe it... you can not ADD information to the package and have it come out smaller06:02
cjwatson_psusi: you apparently believe that gzip compression is perfect06:02
ringeHobbsee: 2.6.22-12 works good, not 2.6.22-13 or -1406:03
cjwatson_psusi: it's entirely sensible to believe that different encodings will come out differently06:03
psusicjwatson_: eh?  gzip is used either way...06:03
cjwatson_psusi: in any case you don't have to believe or disbelieve. you can try it.06:03
psusiin fact, source packages can use bzip206:03
Hobbseeringe: okay, so do you have l-u-m installed for the later kernels?06:03
cjwatson_or perhaps that is too much effort06:03
psusigit can only use gzip afaik06:03
cjwatson_source packages can't use bzip2 in the current format unless they use bzip2-in-tar-gz06:04
psusiso I don't see how you can save space by switching to a less effective algorithm and adding more data06:04
psusihuh?  the .deb can contain a .tar.bz2 instead of a .tar.gz06:04
cjwatson_a .deb is not a source package.06:04

Riddellmertiki: what's the reson?06:10
=== norsetto [n=norsetto@host42-58-dynamic.6-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it] has joined #ubuntu-devel
mertikiRiddell : The /etc/qt3 folder in Gutsy has very low permissions because it's not created by the installation of the libqt3-mt package. So if Gutsy is released with the /etc/qt3 folder with very low permissions, the libqt3-mt package won't install correctly same with my patch06:10
psusicjwatson_: yea, but how can adding the 200 commits to the current source code result in less data?06:11
mertiki/etc/qt3 folder should be created by libqt3-mt, and the previous package before my patch didn't create it in Gutsy06:11
cjwatson_psusi: again, you desperately need to read the post06:11
cjwatson_your premise is false06:11
Riddellmertiki: ok, but why can't it can be fixed in an update?06:12
mertikiRiddell : Because each update in Gutsy would need to change the permissions of the /etc/qt3 folder in order to install correctly.06:12

tkamppetermathiaz, thanks.06:14
=== jazzanova [n=boris@] has left #ubuntu-devel []
cjwatson_I don't understand this point about permissions of /etc/qt3. dpkg runs as root and permissions do not impede it06:15

cjwatson_psusi: "only package/.git/*"06:15
psusicjwatson_: aye... I am calling bs on that06:15
Hobbseedid we not seed linux-image-generic in pre-gutsy or something?  or equivalent image?06:15

cjwatson_psusi: this is science, not religion. it doesn't count unless you put in the effort to reproduce it.06:16
psusiI just pulled the dmraid package into a git repo without any history... the size of just package/.git is significantly larger than the original source package06:16

ringeHobbsee: I am concerned since this bug is not given critical priority - it's a clear blocker06:20
Hobbseeringe: it's somewhat of a local problem06:20

cjwatson_Hobbsee: linux-generic should've been seeded for some time06:20

ringeHobbsee: I don't see why a whole range of wireless enabled laptops without wireless support is "local"06:21
pittimertiki: and for an SRU we can take some time to get the upgrade right; as opposed to now, when we need to rush things and potentially make it worse06:21
Hobbseeringe: FYI, if my ipw3945 card wasnt working, i wouldnt be talking to you now. nor would a lot of other people on irc.06:21

mertikipitti : Ok good, so should everything is already specified in the bug report, should-I do something else around that or everything is Ok?06:22
Hobbseeringe: and that link you provided shows no mention of l-u-m being installed at all.06:22
pittimertiki: I didn't read it entirely yet, but I don't think it has a clear strategy how to fix upgrades?06:22
ringeHobbsee: I'm at ipw3945 myself, running 2.6.22-12 - and I just installed the l-u-m as you said without it fixing the missing files problem06:22
cjwatson_you need to install the matching l-u-m06:23

cjwatson_which probably isn't in the archive any more; upgrade :-)06:23
Hobbseecjwatson_: why do so many people seem to be on linux-image-386?06:23
ringeHobbsee: sorry, I'm stupid - the files are there now. But why aren't they loaded with -14?06:24
mertikipitti : the patch has just one line, and changes a single file in the debian folder of the package which allows the package to create is config files in the /etc/qt3 folder. This is a fix based on the Feisty package which was Ok.06:24
cjwatson_Hobbsee: perhaps because they have hardware that doesn't support -generic06:24
pittimertiki: right06:24
ringeHobbsee: and why aren't they automatically installed?06:24

Hobbseeringe: i thought you said this was a fresh gutsy install06:41
ringesince, as I said - I did a regular install with the BETA cd06:41
ringeHobbsee: it is06:41
ringeHobbsee: The computer is brand new - came with Vista (which I fight Packard Bell to give me money back for)06:42
Hobbseein which case, what's update-manager got to do with it?06:42
mvoringe: update-manager will ensure this in release upgrade mode, but not in regular update mode (as in the regular update mode this situation can only occur if a) a devel release is used b) non-standard sources are used c) the user decided to go without -generic (or -386 etc)06:42
ringeHobbsee: Nothing much. I just figured update-manager would do users a favor if checking for the linux-image package06:42
ringemvo: hmm. There are two questions: why did the missing linux-image become missing in the first place, then what should update-manager do about it if it occurs?06:44
ringeI don't know the answer to the first question, since this simply is a fresh install. The answer to the second is that bug I just filed.06:44
cjwatson_ringe: not seeing anything in that log about why it wasn't installed, but I suspect it must have been a transient problem with that particular CD image06:44
cjwatson_daily builds can be like that sometimes06:44
=== Hobbsee thinks update manager should check for a whole lot of stuff, so users cant do stupid things.
cjwatson_ringe: no, you didn't install with the beta CD, or at least that's not what your logs say06:45
cjwatson_'Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Alpha i386 (20070823.5)'06:45
cjwatson_that's over a month before beta06:45
mvoringe: the question why it went missing might be answered with /var/log/apt/term.log. what it should do? IMO it should do nothing because it can't tell if the user did not decided against this kernel for some reason.this is a different matter for feisty->gutsy upgrades, here it should (and will) ensure that linux-image-$flavor is installed (unless the user uses a self compiled kernel)06:45
cjwatson_it looks like you actually used Tribe 506:46
ringeHobbsee: I think we must be careful not to make update-manager become windows update with the trust problem06:47
ringecjwatson_: Hmm, you're right.06:47
cjwatson_the livefs log for Tribe 5 shows that linux-ubuntu-modules was installed06:47
cjwatson_(note: livefs build numbers don't always correspond exactly to CD build numbers)06:47
ringecjwatson_: so any update after that removed it then?06:48
cjwatson_I guess it must have done; the installer didn't06:48
ringeWell, at least that'06:48

evandauto-install is a d-i component that does what you're describing above.10:23

slangasektkamppeter: um, I specifically didn't use System -> Administration -> Printing though, because AFAIK that's not present under Kubuntu?11:42
tkamppeterslangasek, I have changed your text again, selcting only one printer setup tool for describing a way to fix the problem of the missing PDF printer I selected system-config-printer due to the fact that the web interface will ask for login and password after setting up the queue.11:43
slangasekit will?11:44
pittislangasek: (NB that system-config-printer is not for KDE and not installed by default on Kubuntu)11:44
slangasekpitti: yes, that's precisely my point11:45
tkamppeterslangasek, and even worse, if you start it with http://... and not with https://... it will autoswitch to https://... in the end of the add printer wizard forgetting all enterd data, throughing the user back to the start page.11:45
pittiah, right, it's for cups-pdf11:45
slangasektkamppeter: well the release notes didn't say http://, they said https://11:45
tkamppeterslanagsek, sorry, then one of the quirks I already worked around in my original text, but there is still the password issue.11:46
tkamppeterslangasek, pitti, is cups-pdf also installed/available in Kubuntu or any other Ubuntu flavor which does not ship system-config-printer?11:47
slangasekyes, cups-pdf is a recommends of kubuntu-desktop11:48
pittitkamppeter: it's not enough to apt-get install --reinstall cups-pdf, or so?11:48
slangasekall the other desktop tasks use system-config-printer though11:48
tkamppeterpitti, by repeatedly doing this you can get lucky that CUPS will pick up once, but also not ...11:49
pittitkamppeter: also, we'll fix it in an SRU very early; I don't think that this is a real frontline feature that a lot of people will immediately miss11:49
slangasekpitti: would you prefer not to release-note it?11:50
=== frostburn [n=frostbur@cpe-74-74-219-225.rochester.res.rr.com] has joined #ubuntu-devel
tkamppeterSo this means in the release notes you cannot give workarounds to users based on GUI tools, as Kubuntu has a completely different set of GUI tools?11:50
slangasekno, it just means we should be aware of this when picking workarounds to document11:50
pittislangasek: I'd say it depends on the number of caveats that are on the page; it shouldn't be more than a handful11:51
tkamppeterSo I suggest to perhaps have to release note files, one for Kubuntu, another for the rest11:51
=== macd [n=d@cl-151.ewr-01.us.sixxs.net] has joined #ubuntu-devel

=== FireRabbit [n=FireRabb@] has left #ubuntu-devel []
pittislangasek: well, I mean the "Caveats" section of the announcement page; you mean something else?11:53

pittiah, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GutsyGibbon/ReleaseNotes ?11:56
tkamppeterDoes Kubuntu have a menu entry System -> Administration -> Printing? As I did not say "system-config-printer" in my text it will perhaps fit.11:57
pittiRiddell: ^11:58
Riddellno, k-menu -> System Settings -> Printers11:59
Riddellalthough I don't know if you can install the CUPS pdf device from that (KDE has its own built in one of course)11:59
pittitkamppeter: wouldn't help you much anyway, I figure, since the workflow within the printer tool is completely different11:59

tkamppeterRiddell, if the KDE Printing manager shows all entries of "lpinfo -v" it will be able to set up the PDF printer, especially because cups-pdf ships the PPD ready-made and not a PPD generator.12:02
=== persia [n=persia@ubuntu/member/persia] has left #ubuntu-devel []
tkamppeterDoes Kubuntu exclusively ship KDE apps, all having the KDE printing dialog with built-in PDF (so no Firefox, Thunderbird, ...)? In this case one could remove cups-pdf from Kubuntu.12:05
Riddellit does (plus openoffice which won't need it), but people also install firefox and thunderbird12:06
=== svolpe_gerrath [n=Gerrath_@unaffiliated/gerrath] has joined #ubuntu-devel
Riddellnot that I'm too fussed if the release notes don't have a KDE fix, as you say it's KDE's fault for being behind on printing12:06

tkamppeterslangasek, I hope app developers (esp. Firefox/thunderbird) will allow us to do away with cups-pdf in all our flavors in Hardy or at least Hardy+1.12:08
=== predius_ [n=predius@] has joined #ubuntu-devel
tkamppeterRiddell, WDYT, should we describe both the GNOME and the KDE way to set up a PDF printer in the release notes, or should we have separate release notes for KDE (in that ones one can also drop the two points about users-admin).12:10
pittiwell, IMHO the release notes are full enough already; it's just a race condition of a relatively minor feature which is a perfect SRU candidate, so I wouldn't worry about it too much; just my 2, of course12:11
pittiand it only happens on really slow machines12:11
pittimy 'two vmware installs and a CD burn in parallel' use case isn't really typical, I'd hope12:12
pittitkamppeter: and I doubt that it affects desktop installs in the first place12:12
pitti(just alternate)12:12
slangasekwhy would that be?12:12
slangasekI mean, I tend to agree with you that we can probably do without documenting this one12:12
slangasekbut I don't see why it would be specific to alternates12:12
tkamppeterpitti, so my "sleep 3" will probably help in 99% of the cases.12:13
pittiwell, the PDF queue shuold be created at livefs build time, not when the user installs the system with ubiquity, or am I totally wrong here?12:13
Riddelltkamppeter: since I don't know of any GUI workaround in KDE, I would just leave it out12:13
slangasekpitti: oh, perhaps it would at that12:13
tkamppeterpitti, are print queues from livefs transferred to the ubiquity-installed system on the hard disk?12:14
tkamppeterRiddell, you mean points as users-admin points, so that the release notes are fine for you becuase there are no KDE issues worth to document?12:15
pittiso merely testing if it is present on the current live CDs ought to be sufficient?12:16
pitti.. in the live systems12:16
pittitkamppeter: not the ones you create *in* the live system12:16
pittitkamppeter: but AFAICS the default printers.conf from livefs build time shuold be copied?12:16
pittitkamppeter: when we do an ubiquity install, that doesn't run any postinsts12:16
pittithat's all done in the livefs build12:16
tkamppeterpitti, then you should run a certain amount of the same live CD build and check whether every build has a PDF queue, as otherwise we are either lucky and 100% of our users have a PDF queue or no one (for each flavor).12:19
Riddelltkamppeter: the users-admin release note is slightly different, there it is the gnome tool which is broken but the KDE tool is fine so no need to mention KDE, with cups-pdf I don't see a workaround for KDE so I'd just leave out any mention of KDE since there's not much a user can do12:19

pittitkamppeter, slangasek: hm, neither i386 nor amd64 lives have the PDF queue12:22
slangasekin the images?12:22
tkamppeterpitti, can it be that the installation of the CD building progress is much slower than an alternative CD installation (or even the single-package installation which I did)?12:23

tkamppeter_pitti, the postinst script of cups-pdf restarts CUPS and this should at least say something like "restarting CUPS". Can it be that in an initial installation where all packages get installed at once, cups-pdf is installed before CUPS?12:33
tkamppeter_cups-pdf depends on cupsys, does this not mean that the cupsys installation has to be completed before the cups-pdf installation starts?12:33
tkamppeter_And what does the "Pre-Depends: cupsys (>= 1.1.15)" mean?12:33
