crimsunmateusz: you'll probably find https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMaintenance#head-ef6ca858b4b97c1ad30639e34d92abb11ef37cf8 useful, but I recommend you inspect updating it for a hardy SAUCE one.00:00
crimsuninspect->consider working on00:00
mateuszcrimsun: I am not using hardy00:03
crimsunmateusz: that's fine; I merely mentioned consider benefitting others.00:04
mateuszcrimsun: there must be a reason why this patch is from 2006 now in mainline of kernel00:05
mateuszno in mainline00:06
mateuszcrimsun: is ubuntu 2.6.22 kernel modifed ?00:31
mateuszcrimsun: I thought the sources are vanilla00:31
mateuszso it should be possible to applay patch on
crimsunmateusz: yes, the Ubuntu kernels are modified.00:32
mateuszquilt or dpatch ?00:32
crimsunmateusz: git.  https://kernel.ubuntu.com00:32
mateuszheh.. but the tar.bz shouldnt be modified00:32
mateuszthen how am I suppose to applay patch which only applays on vanilla while preserving all ubuntu patches ?00:33
mjg59If it only applies to vanilla, then the Ubuntu patches would be unlikely to apply after you applied it00:34
mateuszmjg59: if I want to make a patch for current ubuntu kernel00:49
mateuszmjg59: what I should do?00:49
mateuszmjg59: for the 2.6.22-14 I guess this one is in gutsy00:49
mjg59Grab the kernel source, and generate a patch against it00:50
mateuszfrom git?00:50
mateuszor from source package /00:50
mjg59If you don't want it to go to the main distribution, then just apt-get the source00:50
mateuszNo, I want it to go to main dist00:51
mjg59Then the best way is to pull the git tree, make your change, commit it and then publish your git tree00:52
mjg59Then you can ask kernel-team@ubuntu.com to pull from your tree - best way is to file a bug report and mention that in the pull request00:52
mjg59But only critical bug fixes are likely to be applied against the gutsy tree00:52
mateuszthis is serious bug00:53
mateuszas there are packages in gutsy00:53
mateuszwhich need that patch00:53
mateuszthey're useless00:53
mateuszand its very misleading00:54

pochusoren: the gtk-vnc patch is used by your virt-* combo keys stuff, am I right? I'm wondering whether it makes sense to forward the patch to the Debian maintainer, but I thought it would only make sense if the virt-* maintainers were going to use it. But as he maintains virt-viewer I think I'll forward it to him and let him decide if he wants it or not10:28
sorenpochu: No, they're entirely separate.10:29
sorenpochu: The patch enables an extension to the VNC protocol that sends key codes rather than keysyms over the wire. This alleviates practially all problems you might encounter if you're not using US keymapping everywhere.10:30
sorenpochu: The combo keys stuff is just a one-liner. (assuming we're talking about the same combo keys stuff)10:30

Ko_deZHi all14:41

Ko_deZI am trying to compile the latest dvb-apps (linuxtv project), and it fails.14:42
Ko_deZactually it fails when compiling on my local system as well.14:43

Ko_deZCould anyone give me a hint on what makes this error appear?14:43
Ko_deZI am running kubuntu 7.1014:44
pittisoren: but we have used and supported dhcp3-server for years, and suddenly pulling in another one sounds bad both maintenance and support-wise14:44
sorenpitti: The alternative is to maintain weird, ugly patches to stuff like libvirt.14:46
RiddellKo_deZ: talk to upstream14:47
pittisoren: to change the called command from dnsmasq to dhcp3d?14:47
sorenpitti: You realise they're not cli compatible?14:47

cjwatsonmateusz: #ubuntu-kernel would be more effctive14:48

pittisoren: why not have the dhcp server just pass the host nameserver?14:49
pittisoren: can you please list some reasons in the MIR?14:49
Ko_deZRiddell: I have been trying to get help on their irc channel for a while. No luck. I was hoping someone could tell me if there is a dev or header file I need to install for this.14:49
pittiTBH, we have enough bugs on dhcp3, we don't really need more from dnsmasq14:50

sorenThe only changes I made to dpkg-genchanges are about Launchad-Bugs-Fixed magic.22:07
sorenAt least that was the intent.22:07
gesersoren: but this warning exist also in http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11869736/buildlog_ubuntu-hardy-amd64.apt_0.7.9ubuntu9_FULLYBUILT.txt.gz which still used the old dpkg, so nothing new22:07
sorengeser: Lovely, thanks for looking that up! That's likely to have saved me quite a bit of head ache :)22:08
slangaseksoren: right; it's dpkg that has the sweeping changes to dpkg-gencontrol22:08
sorenpitti: around?22:08
=== RzR is now known as rZr
* soren boggles at the fact that there's logic in pkg-create-dbgsym for debhelper compat level 122:11
sorenAh... I've got a good guess as to what's going on..22:12
sorenI'm no perl guru, but isn't the third argumennt to open supposed to be the flags?22:17
sorenFrom the new dpkg: open(CDATA, "<", $file)22:17
sorenThe old dpkg:22:18
soren    open(CDATA, "< $controlfile") ||22:18
blueyedsoren: maybe open(CDATA, "<".$file) was intended (but no perl guru either)22:20
sorenThat would probably work, too. I've change it to "< $file".22:21
slangaseksoren: that appears to be legal use of perl open(), but if you want to use the magic '-' value for stdin or stdout it apparently doesn't work so well22:21
slangasek"In the 2-arguments (and 1-argument) form opening ’-’ opens STDIN and opening '>-' opens STDOUT." perlfunc(1)22:21
slangasekand if you use the comma, you obviously aren't using the 2-argument form, so. :)22:22
sorenslangasek: How do we fix this?22:22
slangaseksoren: I think the fix you just described would be correct22:22
sorenslangasek: If I just upload the new one, it'll fail to build.22:22
slangasekwill it? are there dbgsym packages built from dpkg?22:22
sorenOnly dpkg-dev is arch:all.22:23
slangasekwell, upload the fix all the same, and then we can beg a manual bootstrapping from a buildd admin22:23
geserI've tested the new dpkg-dev with the old /usr/bin/dpkg-genchanges but still the same error22:23
sorengeser: YEs, it's in $PERL/Dpkg/Control.pm22:23
sorenslangasek: Yeah.22:23
sorenlamont: Around?22:23
lamontin this channel anyway. :-)22:24
sorenAre you following this, or should I fill you in?22:24
lamontsoren: --> infinity22:24
soreninfinity: Are you following this?22:24
soreninfinity: New dpkg broke the world. A new upload of dpkg will just ftbfs, so I need manual intervention.22:25
gesersoren: iirc there is an option to disable the package mangling, or will it failed for other reasons?22:26
sorenNO_PKG_MANGE will certainly fix it.22:27
sorenNO_PKG_MANGLE, even.22:28
=== nenolod_ is now known as nenolod
sorenslangasek: What do you think? Upload a fixed version with that, have it built and published, and the upload a new one without NO_PKG_MANGLE?22:28
slangaseksoren: oh, sure, go for it22:31
sorenWill do.22:31
seb128soren: right I would do that22:34
sorenI'm on it.22:35
soreninfinity: Never mind :)22:36

sorendebian bug 46534022:49
ubotuDebian bug 465340 in dpkg "dpkg: Broken call to open in Dpkg/Control.pm" [Important,Open] http://bugs.debian.org/46534022:49
sorenI hope "important" is an appropriate severity. I wasn't sure.22:54
xivulonTheMuso, re accessibility wanted to show current wubi dialog22:58
TheMusoxivulon: right22:58
xivulonthis is the current version22:59
xivulonbut I am not too pleased with it22:59
xivulonas mentioned in the email, wouldn't it be better if the accessibility and mobility options were not mutually exclusive?22:59
TheMusoxivulon: I was actually going to reply to your email. Braille at this point should not be a check box, because on the live CD boot menu, it can not be used as such. It shoudl be a radio button like the rest.23:00
xivulonthat would translate to all checkbox in the dialog (without "None" option)23:00
TheMusoxivulon: At the moment this is not possible, due to the way the live CD boot menu works, and I don't think they can be turned on and off in that menu. cjwatson, do you have any idea whether having the accessibility menu act like check boxes, instead of single selectable options only is possible?23:01
TheMusoAnd, for many of them, it doesn't make sense. One would either want one, or the other.23:01
sorenEr.... I'm not getting an ACCEPT mail..23:01
seb128soren: maybe elmo did something again23:04
xivulonTheMuso, I am no expert, but I would expect that someone might want both visibility and keyboard-modifiers23:04
xivulonor magnifier + screen reader23:04
seb128soren: I didn't get accepted mail either for my gnome-desktop upload23:04
sorenseb128: What did you do? Reupload?23:05
TheMusoxivulon: Yes, however the underlying code on the Linux side doesn't really support this properly yet, and its probably a little too late to go changing it for hardy, as its working quite well at the moment. However, this is certainly something we can look at doing for hardy+1.23:05
seb128soren: no, the gnome-desktop upload was from 15 minutes ago or so23:06
sorenseb128: Oh, ok.23:06
seb128soren: but the uploads were not processed this morning neither, some people asked on IRC and elmo fixed it23:06
evandTheMuso: cjwatson recently added checkbox support to isolinux, so yes, it is possible.23:06
xivuloncasper-bottom can probably take multiple arguments not sure about gfx interface23:06
sorenelmo: Around? It seems that soyuz might be failing to pick up uploads.. Rumour has it that you're the man to fix it.23:07
TheMusoevand: Ooo ok, I wonder how much work it is to change the a11y menu. If its not too difficult, I could easily hack on the code for casper to get it support such a configuration by thursday.23:07
TheMusoxivulon: Yes it can take multiple arguments, but its the code that processes those arguments and takes the appropriate action that needs to be changed.23:07
evandTheMuso: the casper code works with multiple a11y arguments alreayd.23:07
TheMusoevand: Are you sure?23:07
evandTheMuso: yes, it processes every /proc/cmdline option.23:08
xivuloncan we the have boot parameters such as accessibility_v1 accessibility_m2 accessibility_braille23:09
TheMusoevand: I know that, but I am referring to the code withint eh individual cases. We'd need to be sure that one profile doesn't overwrite another's settings./23:09
evandTheMuso: ah, indeed23:09
evandxivulon: what's wrong with the way they're currently implemented?23:10
TheMusoevand: Heh I was the original author of that file back in 2006.23:10
TheMusoIt has since undergone way too many changes to keep track of. :p23:10
evandTheMuso: heh, indeed :)23:11
gesersoren: luckily today is not friday, usually such things are reserved for fridays23:11
xivulonevand, IIRC now it sets a single variable23:12
* xivulon looking at code23:13
xivulonno it does not23:13
evandindeed, it should work fine as is23:14
xivuloncurrent implementation is fine, other than the caveat from TheMuso23:14
* TheMuso looks at the code again.23:14
evandindeed, I was just going to say23:14
evandTheMuso: be sure to look at the copy from bzr23:14
TheMusoevand: Yeah I saw your upload.23:14
evandI have changes in there that haven't made it to the archive yet23:14
TheMusoI just pulled the latest changes.23:14
* TheMuso goes to scour the code now.23:15
sorenAw, shame on me for not passing proper -vstuff to dpkg-genchanges when merging dpkg.23:16
TheMusoevand: Any reason why you used orca-customizations.py, and not the standard user-settings.py file?23:18
evandTheMuso: "Generated by orca. DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!!!"23:21
TheMusoFair enough.23:21
evandorca-customizations.py seems to be the proper place for such things23:21
TheMusoevand: It also seems that for the magnifier and braille profiles, you've enabled speech when speech is not needed.23:22
elmoseb128/soren: I broke soyuz temporarily while doing emergency maintenance for the kernel root exploit - I'm definitely not the go to guy everytime soyuz stops working23:24
evandTheMuso: I think I just did a simple sed, let me check though.23:25
seb128elmo: ok, sorry, I though you might have been working on the same thing that this morning23:25
xivulonbetter http://img405.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshotwubisetup1ka0.png23:25
TheMusoxivulon, evand. The only profile where things get overwritten/are shared between profiles but different settings, are the two motor disability profiles, i.e m1 and m2. I am also not sure as to whether the KDE/XFCE stuff overwrites itself for different profiles, but gconf wise, and orca wise, all other profiles do not break each other.23:25
sorenelmo: Was that this morning or just now?23:26
elmosoren: this morning23:26
xivulonTheMuso in this case if both m1 and m2 are true we go with m223:26
xivulonI guess23:26
TheMusoxivulon: Well its up to the code to work that out, but I wouldn't make those two check boxes, however it also depends on the gfxboot possibilities.23:27
sorenelmo: Ok. So cprov/bigjools?23:27
evandTheMuso: so I did, thanks for catching that.23:27
cjwatsonTheMuso: should be possible to make the access stuff checkbox, though it would change the keyboard navigation a bit (at the moment you'd have to press a number then escape)23:27
cjwatsonTheMuso: but at the moment a menu can only be all-checkbox or all-radio, not a mix23:27
TheMusoevand: While you're at it, I'll get you to uncomment the enable_esd line in the blindness profile. We can finally have sound using pulse for speech.23:27
TheMusocjwatson: Right I thought as much.23:27
evandTheMuso: will do23:28
cjwatsonso from what you were saying from the time being we might be better off staying with what we have23:28
TheMusocjwatson: I totally agree. It also makes things harder for those who can't see what they are doing.23:28
TheMusoAs there are more keys to press, with little to no feedback.23:28
xivulonTheMuso on my side I am ok http://img183.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshotwubisetup2mn9.png23:29
xivuloncjwatson have a look at the image above would like to stay close to cd interface23:29
xivulonso do we go back to all radio buttons?23:31
elmosoren: normally yes23:31
elmosoren: mthaddon's fixed it23:31
TheMusoxivulon: I'd say so, simply because we can't have a mix on the gfxboot menu. However its nice to know that the code is pretty much fine if in the future we wish to change things.23:32
=== jamesh__ is now known as jamesh
TheMusoAnd, that is actually something worth considering for the future.23:32
TheMusoAt the start of the next cycle, I'll see what the community has to say about that idea.23:33
sorenelmo: Excellent. Thanks very much.23:33
evandTheMuso: enable_esd is on by default.  In fact, the commentted out line actually disables esd.  Any objection to me just removing the comment entirely?23:34
xivulonlast http://img155.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshotwubisetup3kd3.png23:34
TheMusoevand: Sorry, I got confused, yes remove that, and the comment above it, thanks.23:35
evandwill do23:36
TheMusoxivulon: I don't personally care how it looks, as long as it works, and windows screen readers can work with it. Let me know when this is available for testing, and I will test it.23:36
TheMusoAnd get others with other screen readers to test it also.23:36
xivulonTheMuso, tonight wubi build will include that, but it won't work until the new ISO is up with grub-installer/lupin patches23:37
TheMusoxivulon: Right. Is all of that likely to land for hardy?23:38
xivulonShould be it'has been released already mostly23:38
TheMusoxivulon: Ok.23:38
xivulonBut I am not the one in charge...23:38
TheMusoxivulon: Ok I understand.23:39
TheMusocjwatson: I was looking over my logs from the weekend, and noticed talk about dmraid, and its possible inclusion into main, once partman-dmraid or whatever it was gets testing. Woudl you, 1) like me to test it, as I have a PCI card that uses such metadata that dmraid reads, and 2), integrate it into the initramfs error handling spec?23:41
xivulonTheMuso, last build with accessibility page: http://wubi-installer.org/devel/minefield/Wubi-8.04-alpha-rev411.exe23:52
TheMusoxivulon: Ok thanks. I'll have a look when I get a chance.23:53
cjwatsonTheMuso: 1) sounds good, coordinate with evand 2) if you have time, absolutely23:53
cjwatsonalthough I'm not sure how dmraid works with regard to the initramfs23:53
TheMusocjwatson: Well I'll have a look at the code at least.23:53
