YokoZarSo it looks like Gnometris is still completely broken by default in Hardy01:58
LaserJockhow is it broken?01:59
YokoZarIf you use the default theme, it renders the tiles way too slowly and becomes very uncontrollable after a few lines of blocks build up02:00
ubotuLaunchpad bug 138586 in gnome-games "Gnometris controls very unresponsive when keys are held down" [Medium,Confirmed]02:00
LaserJockhmm, works fine here02:00
YokoZarTry pre-filling 10 rows with tango shaded theme, then just hold down left and right02:01
FujitsuThe default is still Tango Shaded (or was a week ago), so it's rather painful once you've got more than a dozen blocks :(02:01
YokoZarIt's really embarassing actually.  Can't run Tetris on our amazing new high performance operating system (it's broken in Gutsy too)02:02
* minghua hopes that minesweeper still works fine.02:03
YokoZarminghua: you can also install wine and run winemine from the terminal :)02:06
LaserJockwell, does somebody want to change the default?02:22
YokoZarLaserJock: it's a main package, right?02:46

climatewarriordoes anyone know if this is a bug04:11
climatewarriorI installed ubuntu hardy beta and restricted doesnt seem to recognize my broadcom card. In gutsy it automatically fetched the firmware and got everything working04:12

climatewarriorhumm thats a different issue. I have a broadcom 4309 and the device works. The only issue is that I had to manually do the firmware cutting. In Gutsy restricted detected my card. Fetched the firmware from the internet and cut it for me.04:18

lagaHobbsee: what does "giving back" mean? i've heard it a few times in here so i'm curious :)12:44
Hobbseelaga: sometimes packages fail to build because of other things that haven't built, or other transient stuff.12:44
Hobbseelaga: to give them back means to requeue them, so they're added to the build queue again12:45

shayaso upgrading to hardy will kill render it unbootable (especially if uninstall old kernel)19:35
slangaseke.g., sarge shipped with 0.95+cvs-something, and there were Ubuntu releases in the same timeframe; that seems to be the version breezy shipped with19:35

slangasekthe oldest I find in the changelog is still 0.95+cvs19:36
slangasekand that's all the way back to warty19:37
shayabut I think there's a bigger issue w/ grub as well, as mbr portion never gets updates19:38
slangasekwell, neither does second-stage, unless you manually run grub-install19:38
shayathat's probably the bigger issue19:39
shayathe second-stage19:39
shayathe mbr portion is minimal19:39
slangasekI will say that making changes to how we handle *any* of this stuff, three weeks before an LTS release, is a losing proposition.  I don't believe three weeks is enough time to chase down the regressions that will be introduced by adding new code to re-write MBR/second stage on upgrade.19:40
shayaI'm not saying to auto do it19:41
shayaI'm saying in kernel preinst check19:41
shayaand if fail, warn in big letters19:41
slangasekwell, then the kernel has to know how to detect a broken bootloader19:41
shayacan grep stage219:41

mok0mezell1: It would be good if you would do a bit of work, but then there is a good chance that the bug could be fixed before hardy22:02

calcanyone know how to split an argument in shell into multiple arguments or to variables?22:21
calceg i have an arg "foo bar baz" and i want to be three separate bits22:21
persiacalc: If you call `myscript foo bar baz`, you ought be able to access the variables inside myscript (assuming shell) as $1, $2, $3, etc.22:33
calcpersia: i'm trying to work around a bug that causes the arguments to show up as a single argument22:33
calcpersia: OOo calls external programs with the argument list space separated but not as individual arguments22:34
calci need to cause them to become individual arguments for the program i need to run, so i was going to wrap it and split it somehow22:34
* persia tries something else22:34
calci'm pretty sure its easy to do and i think i used to know how to do it, but its been a long time since i did it, and never had a use for it since22:34
calcfor msg in $@  will split it on space but then i need to somehow execute with all the split parts on one line22:37
persiacalc: The wrapper script contains a shebang line, and a call to the real script with $1.  A generic wrapper script would have the single line "$0 $1", as long as you can guarantee that OOo never works properly.22:37
calcpersia: oh thats all it needs?22:38
persiaWell, basically.  As soon as you expand $1 in a shell-script context, it becomes three tokens if called to another shell.  If you want to do it within a single script, you have to parse it, and so assign variables directly, rather than using $1, $2, etc.22:39
calcpersia: wow, thanks :)22:39
calci was thinking too hard about the problem :)22:39
persia(and actually, you need something like $0-real $1)22:39
calci think there is a way to do the split in a single shell script but that isn't needed for this22:40
calcthanks for the help :)22:42
calcpersia: so a generic call that doesn't use $0 would be something like this?22:47
calc$program $@22:47
persiacalc: Looks right.  Try calling `./foo bar\ baz\ quux` as a test.22:49
persiaActually, no.  shift will eat all your arguments.22:49
calcpersia: it looked like it worked for me22:50
calcpersia: but i don't know if it would work in all cases22:50
calci did this though:22:51
calc./foo1.sh "/usr/bin/launchpad-integration -P openoffice.org -i"22:51
persiacalc: That ought to work.  Depends on your calling convention.  $program contains your entire quoted string.  I don't know what you ended up putting in $@22:52
persiaTry again with some more arguments: you may well breate it.22:52
calcpersia: oh yea it does :(22:55
persiacalc: Try just calling $($1), if the program name is part of $122:56
calci forgot i can't get to the individual args until its executed22:57
calcdo i even need the $() wrapping it?22:58
calc#!/bin/sh ; $1 - seemed to work22:58
persiacalc: Well then, that's even easier :)23:01
Ngmjg59: that's unfortunate, but thanks23:03
james_wcalc: are you ever going to want to pass an argument with a space in to launchpad-integration?23:03
calcjames_w: no23:04
james_wgood, it seems like the API you have would never allow you to do that properly.23:04
calcit only gets called like: -P packagename -i,-b,-t23:04
calci filed a bug upstream about the issue and just work around it like this :\23:05
