jlpariseGood evening everyone hows hug day going?00:34
catterlythis is hug day?00:39
catterlywhy I had no idea!00:40
* rockstar_ thought hug days were Thursdays00:40
james_wcatterly: yup, ubiquity one00:40
catterlyoh every Thursday is a hug day?00:40
james_wrockstar_: tuesdays and thursdays00:40
catterlyI have much to learn00:40
* rockstar_ does too00:40
james_wI think thursday is a desktop one, and tuesday is "other"00:41
james_wI don't know what the right term would be, perhaps it's platform00:41
catterlyso what does a hug day for ubiquity imply? is that the installer?00:43
james_wcatterly: yeah, it's the graphical installer (as opposed to the "alternate" one)00:46

ubotuLaunchpad bug 206384 in ubuntu "hostname is incorrect on LAN" [Undecided,New]01:24
jer132I can't get anyone to help me sort it out.01:24
jer132Everyone in bed?  :)01:26
Tuv0ktry #ubuntu01:32
jer132This is for Hardy.01:32
jer132Not Gutsy.01:33
jer132They told me to go to ubuntu+1 who in turn told me to come here.01:33
jer132anyone want to help me triage a bug?  Plllleeeeaaassse?  :)01:40
Tuv0kjer132, #ubuntu+101:45
jer132I did.  They old me to come here...01:46
jer132No problem :)  Is there usually not many people here in the channel?01:46
calcanyone here have dual head that can test a bug for me?01:56
jer132Can anyone help me figure a bug out?03:12
techno_freakjer132, which bug?03:16
jer132techno_freak: This bug - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/20638403:17
ubotuLaunchpad bug 206384 in hostname "hostname is incorrect on LAN ("*", instead of "ubuntu")" [Undecided,New]03:17
jer132This is a Hardy bug...  But I'm not sure if I filed this properly.03:19
jer132I don't even know what package is causing it.03:20
jer132And I haven't been able to get confirmation that others are experiencing the bug.03:20
JohnPhysjer132:  what is the issue?03:21
jer132But this will likely generate issues for people who have more than one ubuntu machine on a lan that will both try and call themselves "*".03:21
techno_freakJohnPhys, bug #20638403:22
ubotuLaunchpad bug 206384 in hostname "hostname is incorrect on LAN ("*", instead of "ubuntu")" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/20638403:22
jer132It's as though everything appears normal.  But something is making the ubuntu system identify itself to the network incorrectly.03:24
jer132Do you understand what I mean though?03:25
jer132you guys still there?03:34
Tuv0kthen it aint a bug03:35
jer132How's it not a bug?03:36
Tuv0kbecause you have know idea what your talking about03:36
Tuv0kyou don't know what package03:36
Tuv0kyet your clamoring on about some none identifiable "bug"03:37
Tuv0kjer132, http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#id30681003:37
Tuv0kread it03:37
Tuv0kHint: unless you can provide a source-code patch that fixes the problem, or a regression test against a previous version that demonstrates incorrect behavior, you are probably not sure enough.03:38
Tuv0kRemember, there are many other users that are not experiencing your problem. Otherwise you would have learned about it while reading the documentation and searching the Web (you did do that before complaining, didn't you?). This means that very probably it is you who are doing something wrong, not the software.03:39
JohnPhysTuv0k, you're being a bit hostile.03:40
jer132Tub0k: Lean the difference between know and no.  Thanks.03:40
Tuv0kJohnPhys, Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give offense. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.03:42
Tuv0kbut I forget, this is ubuntu afterall03:42
Tuv0kwe do warm and fuzzy here03:43
jer132Also, I'm trying to determine the package that is causing this.03:43
Tuv0kyou determine that first03:43
techno_freakjer132, what does `hostname` on a terminal say?03:44
RAOFjer132: So, I've only ever installed from the alternate CD, which asks you to select a hostname.  Does the liveCD ask that too?03:44
jer132It says "ubuntu".03:44
techno_freakRAOF, think it does03:46
jer132RAOF:  I installed from the alternate CD.03:47
RAOFAnd you left the hostname as Ubuntu?03:47
snerfuMy bug got marked as a duplicate to another bug, but when I went to look at the other one, it said I don't have permission to access it.  Is it possible someone with access might be able to paste  or email me the contents or something? https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/179886  any help appreciated, thanks.03:47
JohnPhysTuv0k:  There's a difference between cutting through the bullshit and just being rude to someone that genuinely is new to the process and wants to be helpful by filing what they perceive to be a bug.  "Warm & fuzzy" is the price that has to be paid for newcomers in a distro that's being pushed to the "public" and also asks for their help in making the project better.03:48
jer132Tuv0k: and yes I have searched through the forums and other bug reports and even posted within the forums.  The problem is that nobody can see it from within Ubuntu itself.  Other machines can see it though.  So unless users happen to trip over it they're not likely to run into it and hence not report it.03:50
RAOFjer132: My machines have been reporting themselves correctly.  Also, I'm not really familiar with that part of the networking stack, so I don't think I can help you.  hostname is probabyl as good a package as any to start with.03:53
Tuv0kJohnPhys, We could debate this all nite, but I won't. I realize ubuntu is for a certain public. A generally lazy public, that expect wonderment upon install. Wubi is a indicator of such. Not saying jer132 is that type of user, but its frustrating helping people who don't even bother to search the web first, never even visted the forum. And when a user like myself links them, another user comes right behind me, and robs the03:54
Tuv0k noob from the wonderment of learning how to fish. Take care.03:54
Tuv0kjer132, did not mean to hurt your sensibilities03:55
jer132Tuv0k: it's ok.  I understand how listening to the same mindnumbing questions all the time would drive you up the wall...  But I usually don't come in here asking questions unless I feel that I'm not having luck elsewhere.03:57
jer132But this is a niche problem that could have a large impact down the road.  At least from the way I see it.03:58
techno_freakjer132, you can ask people in #ubuntu whether some one ever heard of similar problem03:58
snerfuI'm not sure ubuntu is for a lazy public really. That happens to be a side effect, sure.03:58
jer132techno_freak: I did, and then I was quickly escorted to #ubuntu+1 followed by the suggestion that I move this to here.03:59
techno_freakubuntu is for human beings, laziness is their virtue ;)03:59
Tuv0kthats perfect techno03:59
Tuv0kand all types use ubuntu04:00
techno_freakjer132, oh ok. but there might be another one in this world who faces similar problem, wait for him to confirm your bug ;)04:00
Tuv0kbut it just seems like the total non-readers gravitate to ubuntu04:00
Tuv0kbut I digress this aint the place04:01
* Tuv0k one to beam up04:01
techno_freakTuv0k, some people are of the idea that ubuntu-bugs is for answering your bugs, though we are interested in knowing bugs we look for "real" bugs :)04:02
snerfuSo, I am not really sure bugs should be private by default.  The one I have a duplicate of probably contains no private info.  It could have saved me some time in filing it,04:02
jer132I read a great deal within the forums.  If not, I likely wouldn't use Ubuntu at all.04:02
techno_freaksnerfu, it becomes private by default? i heard some one telling the same here yesterday, a newly filed bug became private or some such04:02
Tuv0ktechno_freak, humour, love it :)04:03
snerfuwhen I filed mine last night it was set to private and I had to unset it.04:03
RAOFsnerfu: Bugs aren't private by default.  Bugs with a _coredump_, uploaded by apport, are private by default.04:03
JohnPhystechno_freak:  I think those are only the ones that are auto-filed through apport, since they may have sensitive info in them with all of the data it collects.04:03
techno_freakJohnPhys, ah ok :)04:03
RAOFsnerfu: Because that coredump contains an arbitrary chunk of your memory.  Which can contain such things as your password, bank account details/passwords, etc.04:03
snerfuOk cool, that solves my concern then.04:04
JohnPhysRAOF:  Do you know if the devs "public" the bug report after cleaning up password info and such?04:04
RAOFOnce the apport retracer has gone through and processed the coredump, extracted all the needed information, and removed the coredump it then sets it as public.04:04
RAOFUnless the retracer fails; then the coredump remains, and the bug remains private until you do something.04:05
snerfuHmm it still might be nice just to see the title of it or something.04:06
* DOOM_NX good morning all! :)04:28
jer132Ok folks.  I've marked my bug as invalid/private and deleted it as I don't have a patch to provide to fix it as Tuv0k suggested.  Sorry to cause disruption.  :)04:29
catterlyyou can delete bugs?04:31
techno_freakjer132, you need not always provide a patch. what we look for is bug which tells us what the bug is, how you got it, is it reproducable, if so how?04:31
techno_freakcatterly, s/delete/close/ must have been what he meant04:32
jer132You can just blot out the text.04:32
jer132mark it as invalid and private.04:33
jer132techno_freak: I did explain the problem.  What is not understood?04:36
techno_freakjer132, there was no problem. you need not have closed the bug yourself, rather waited to see if some one else has the same problem04:37
jer132No.  I was advised in here that "it ain't a bug".04:38
jer132So I'll withdraw my claim.04:38
techno_freakjer132, never have a second thought to report a bug, if you are not able to find a solution else where and you made a honest effort to find one04:39
jer132Why?  With the attitude expressed in here as seen above I'll just wait until Hardy goes final and then post it.04:44
JohnPhysjer132:  Try not to let Tuv0k's reponse upset you, there are plenty of other dev's and people in here more than willing to investigate.04:44
techno_freakjer132, he was one of the other kind, we are here to help with bugs :)04:46
Tuv0kjer132, http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#not_losing04:47
Tuv0kI apologized dude, let it go04:49
jer132Wow.  I've never met anyone that requires a FAQ or terms of engagement in order to conduct themselves.04:57
pleaseandthankyocan i install ubuntu edubun xunbu kubuntu at the same time?05:05
* techno_freak points pleaseandthankyo to #ubuntu05:14

hggdhquestion (I know we had a bugday for Network-Manager just a few ago): anyone with problems with n-m?  I cannot get it to work in roaming mode...14:19
secretlondonhggdh, I hate it, it always seems to break stuff. however ymmv14:20
hggdhhi secretlondon -- unfortunately, yes. It does help with wireless, though14:21
hggdhbut overriding to DHCP "static" mode causes my whole system to think I am offline14:22
secretlondonwhich causes the bug in eg firefox and evolution14:23
secretlondonI set up a serial connection in mine (it doesn't work, but nm now things I'm online all the time14:23
secretlondonI think if it works it works well, but like a lot of auto stuff if it breaks it breaks totally14:24

Nattgewif i have a bug report in spanish should i change summary and description to english?15:39
secretlondonif you can15:39
rockstar_Nattgew, yes please15:40
Nattgewwhat should i mark bugs that are confirmed in Gutsy, etc. but fixed in Hardy?  leave them alone?15:40
secretlondonif they are fixed in gutsy (and it's unlikely that we will backport) then fix released15:40
Nattgewbut fixed in Hardy just leave it as is15:41
seb128any bug fixed in hardy should be closed15:42
seb128when the fix is available in ubuntu the bug is closed, a gutsy task can be opened if that requires a backport though15:42
JohnPhyshow can I make it so that bugs that I file go to the ocrrect release?  (hardy, gutsy, etc)15:42
seb128and don't translate bugs, close those as support request15:42
seb128you should mention in the description what version of ubuntu you are using15:43

affluxandrea-bs: thanks anyway17:54
afflux(but I bet it's not 40 bugs which are not in ubuntu)17:54

james_w1. the user changed their setting of this.21:47

ogra_cmpcjames_w, he's likely used to vim while we ship the tiny version where vi actually behaves like good old unix vi (no cursor key support etc)21:51
cgeogra_cmpc: actually, it sounds like he doesn't know about vi at all.21:51
cgeAlso, visudo doesn't use $EDITOR in all cases.21:51
james_w3. there's a configuration option that may have changed in debian/rules between the releases21:52
