brycetjaalton: would you mind doing an upload for me when you get a chance?  Here's a patch to add a quirk for an upcoming laptop model - http://people.ubuntu.com/~bryce/Uploads/xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.2.0.90-2ubuntu3.dsc00:01
tjaaltonbryce: uploaded00:07
brycerockin' thanks00:07
tjaaltonbryce: how come you still don't have core-dev powers?-)00:07
bryceactually I've written up the app, fixed up my wiki page, and everything, I just need to send the mail. 00:08
tjaaltonok, hopefully I'm done with lrm for the day00:29
brycetjaalton: night00:42
brycetjaalton: btw I've added this quirk patch to our xorg-server:  http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=xorg/xserver.git;a=commitdiff;h=fc092334ac0a323b80a9602cb8bf60ca9dee3bfa00:43
brycetjaalton: it adds several kinds of quirks for dealing with buggy EDID00:43
bryceI've compiled xorg-server with the patch to verify it applies, and it looks good00:44
jcristaubryce: what's the diff between patches 150 and 43?01:33
bryceoh, good catch01:34
jcristau(i'm wondering how you got that to apply :))01:35
bryceoh I have another patch (maybe two) and then was going to test.01:36
brycetjaalton: another dell quirk to upload when you have a chance:  http://people.ubuntu.com/~bryce/Uploads/xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.2.0.90-2ubuntu4.dsc02:14

tjaaltonah that one05:38
tjaaltondaniels said that it would be a kernel issue, but I'm not sure how serious he was05:38
tjaaltonmmm, compiz eats 869MB RES06:43
tjaaltonbryce: btw, did we decide to sync ati from experimental? alex said he's preparing a release soon07:31
brycetjaalton: let's wait for the release07:33
bryceif it comes in time, and brings needed features and is sufficiently stable, we can consider pulling it in07:35
brycebut from what you described before, it sounds like the features that have gone in are maybe not as well tested as we'd like07:36
tjaaltonwe need to either get r5/6xx support in ati or figure out how to fix vesa for them again07:36
tjaaltonnight, I'll do some uploads in the meantime ;)07:53

tedgOkay, just to give more data... I got the mysterious white screen thing this morning.16:07
tedgxrandr was happy.16:07
tedgnothing in the logs.16:07
tedgWhen I asked xrandr to switch modes, then things go REALLY unhappy.16:07
tedgBefore I could always switch to a VT, but after asking xrandr to switch modes the display flickered.16:08
tedgAnd then no more VTs.16:08
tedgBut, they were still responsive, I was able to shutdown the machine.16:08
tedgAnd upon reboot, all better.16:08
tjaaltontedg: did you file a bug already?16:30
tjaaltonI'm wondering if it's just dodgy hardware..16:31
tedgNo, I haven't.  I didn't feel like I could file a bug that was anything other than "Incomplete".16:42
tedgI can do that though.16:42
ScislaCanyone know if the fglrx that's in the repo will be what you guys stick with for hardy? (it sounds like there were some slight performance improvements and compatibility with xserver-xorg 1.4 was added in 8.02)18:17
tjaaltonScislaC: 8-02 is the latest in hardy18:22
tjaaltonpretty fresh though18:22
ScislaCtjaalton: not showing in the repo after I just did a reload in synaptic...18:23
tjaaltonScislaC: it'll get there in time18:24
ScislaCtjaalton: either way... woohoo! :)18:25
ScislaCI can finally upgrade to the hardy kernel and xserver!!!! (I've had those packages and fglrx locked in synaptic since gutsy)18:26
bryceheya ScislaC18:28
ScislaChi bryce! I'm gonna be a happy boy. :)18:29
ScislaCbryce: btw, just so I can be prepared, do I need to do anything magical after my xserver upgrades (will I need to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg)? will my current xorg.conf cause issues?18:31
brycenot as far as I know18:33
brycetimo might know differently tho18:34
tjaaltonit _should_ work19:04
brycehrm, I don't know what to think about redhat's xrandr gui work19:18
brycesort of steals wind from the sails, but I'm not sure if it's something we'd want to deploy for hardy19:19
bryce(and I've not yet been able to get it to actually work)19:19
tjaaltonmust be fun :/19:25
brycetjaalton: q's for you on #ubuntu-devel19:35
ScislaCbryce: hopefully you find it as amusing as I did... I just backed up my xorg.conf just in case it would be necessary for later, and saw a ton of backups from the past... they were suffixed with stuff like "-iwishitworked", "-pleasedontbreak", "-Ihatefglrx", etc. :)19:41
ScislaCupgrade worked well :)20:32
ubotuNew bug: #178648 in linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24 (restricted) "sysctl table check failed: /dev/ath .7.9 Unknown sysctl binary path" [Medium,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/17864821:17
ScislaCbryce: if there is a bug that prevents a gnome/kde session from ending if a program is running (it's keytouch and I confirmed it on launchpad)... if it's not a "regular" package is it not a priority to fix it?22:27
brycehmm, not sure22:28
bryceScislaC: maybe ask bdmurray?22:28
ScislaCfair enough22:28
ScislaCbdmurray: do you happen to know the answer to the question I just asked bryce? :)22:29
ubotuNew bug: #192253 in xorg (main) "xorg glx module is missing" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/19225322:30
bdmurrayScislaC: it'd probably depend on the release - is this on Hardy?22:31
ScislaCbdmurray: yes22:31
bdmurrayand so if keytouch is running you can not log out of your desktop session is that right?22:32
ScislaCbut if you kill it before you choose to log out or shut down, everything is fine22:33
bdmurrayWithout having seen the bug that sounds like something worth fixing.22:33
ubotuLaunchpad bug 186713 in keytouch "[hardy] keytouch blocks logout" [Undecided,Confirmed] 22:34
ScislaCbtw, is it not kosher that I marked it as confirmed?22:34
bdmurrayA bug can be / should be confirmed in multiple situations and this seems to meet 2 of them.22:36
bdmurraySo yes it is kosher22:37
ScislaCbdmurray: excellent :)22:39
bdmurrayYou can learn a bit more about how we use statuses at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status22:42
ScislaCbdmurray: thanks for the reference link :)22:46
bdmurrayno problem22:49
bdmurrayScislaC: How do I know if keytouch is running?22:52
bdmurrayIs it just keytouchd running that screws it up?22:52
ScislaCbdmurray: you need to start it via preferences or session management...22:53
ScislaCand yes... keytouchd22:53
bdmurrayIt'd be interesting to know if there is a debian bug about it since we autosync with them23:02
bdmurrayCome to find out there isn't so that might be worth forwarding to them.23:09
ScislaCI have to run right now, but will do so tomorrow :)23:10
ScislaCthanks for the wonderful X work guys :D23:10
