nullackPing seb128 : I havent bugged the ffmpeg gstreamer plugin update as were involved in improving the process. Would you like to me help with writing a freeze exception rationale for this?08:32
seb128nullack: no08:32
seb128I've no clue of why ffmpeg should be updated08:33
seb128and I've too much to do without having to work on that08:33
nullackseb128: Im talking about the gstreamer plugin for ffmpeg08:33
nullackYou did the good and ugly plugins recently08:33
seb128gst-ffmpeg uses the system ffmpeg on debian and ubuntu08:33
seb128you probably want ffmpeg updated08:33
nullackSo to upgrade the plugin we need to upgrade all of ffmpeg?08:34
seb128not sure what plugins you want to update08:34
seb128but if you want to update the ffmpeg codecs you need to update ffmpeg-debian08:34
nullackThe gstreamer plugin for ffmpeg08:34
seb128it's not clear what you are trying to get changed there08:35
nullackhttp://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg08:35
seb128what is the issue exactly?08:36
seb128well, you can update gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg08:36
nullackGstreamer released updates to their plugin which fixes numerous bufs08:36
seb128I'm not sure it'll bring anything though08:36
nullackI am08:36
seb128the package is built using --with-system-ffmpeg08:36
seb128are you sure those plugins are used in this case?08:36
nullackIm not sure about build specifics on Ubuntu but I am sure of improvements the new revision brings to our users08:37
seb128the ffmpeg-debian ones should be used rather08:37
seb128did you try it?08:37
Drag0nLordanyone ran into the MP-Bios Timer Not Connected To IO_APIC error?08:37
seb128it looks like you are advocating for a new ffmpeg08:37
nullackMate I had hoped to not have to advocate the whole thing, just the gstreamer part08:38
seb128but since gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg uses ffmpeg-debian and not ithe gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg copy on debian and ubuntu upgrading gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg will not likely achieve what you want08:38
nullackBut....ffmpeg is very old in the intrepid repos08:38
nullackWhos the maintainer of ffmpeg in Ubuntu? Not you I assume Sebastien?08:39
seb128not me no08:39
seb128I suggested you to ping siretart the other day no?08:39
nullackYes I havent seen him so far08:39
seb128you can also try to talk to slomo but I think he's on holidays08:39
seb128maybe mail them08:39
nullackRight, stariek and slomo08:39
nullackThanks Sebastien, have a good day08:39
seb128you're welcome08:40
seb128you might also want to start a discussion on the ubuntu-devel list about ffmpeg being outdated in ubuntu08:40
nullackI'll do that too, good suggestion08:40
Drag0nLordno one with the MP-BIOS error: Timer not connected to IO-APIC?08:41
Drag0nLordi recently upgraded to Intrepid, and had a question about that particular bug08:42
seb128no but maybe search on launchpad08:43
Drag0nLordsearched for hours....found alot08:43
RAOFDrag0nLord: No, although my laptop won't boot on battery.  Your error's probably easy to search for.08:43
Drag0nLordlol08:43
Drag0nLordi'm on a desktop pc08:44
Drag0nLordi was going to mention, that after upgrading to Intrepid, i saw something a bit different08:44
Drag0nLordwithout using any workarounds, straight after upgrade, i notice that the IO-APIC is actually found in Intrepid08:45
dholbachgood morning08:45

ubottuLaunchpad bug 224797 in migration-assistant "Hardy migration assistant offers to import "Gaim" settings instead of "Pidgin"" [Medium,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/22479716:24

bdmurraymrooney: update the title?16:25
mrooneybdmurray: okay, to include Intrepid?16:25
bdmurraymrooney: right, and I'd also ping evand in #ubuntu-installer since he assigned it to himself16:25

* asac_ waves back16:27
mrooneyor maybe that was putting the application name in the title that I am thinking of...16:27
bdmurraymrooney: okay, then just remove the hardy bit - I'm indifferent.  It just seems misleading as it stand16:27
bdmurrays16:27
mrooneyI'll add it to the title, I think I was confused between release name and app name :)16:28
seb128mrooney: putting the version is the title is proper way when a bug is specific about this version, not when you have a bug on a version and no clue about other versions or didn't try those16:28
seb128ie "hardy to intrepid nautilus upgrade bug" is a proper title16:28
mrooneyseb128: okay, I guess I will put Hardy/Intrepid. it obviously doesn't apply to older releases since Gaim was not the incorrect name then16:29
seb128mrooney: if the bug happens on intrepid put no title16:29
