mathiazslangasek: is there a reason why the openldap group is not allowed to read the content of /var/lib/ldap ?00:08
mathiazslangasek: in intrepid, the openldap group is allowed to read /etc/ldap/slapd.d/00:08
slangasekmathiaz: I'm gonna say "bug"00:08
slangasekwell, "oversight"00:09
slangaseksince the only user in the openldap group is normally the 'openldap' user, and that user /owns/ the dir, it's not an issue anyone's noticed before00:09
mathiazslangasek: ok - so the permissions on /etc/ldap/slapd.d/ and /var/lib/ldap/ should be 0750 ?00:09
slangasekwhereas openldap did specifically have read rights on /etc/ldap/slapd.conf before, because the config was owned by root and read-only by the openldap user00:10
slangasekyes, that sounds appropriate to me00:10
mathiazslangasek: ok - however /var/run/slapd/ needs to be rx for other too00:10
mathiazslangasek: since the ldapi socket is located in there.00:11
mathiazslangasek: ok - I'm going to fix all of this then.00:11

mathiazslangasek: while trying to fix dpkg-reconfigure slapd, I've run into the issue of backups. dpkg-reconfigure slapd works the first time, but fails the second time since there is already a backup directory in /var/backups/.00:58
slangasekmathiaz: hrm, interesting00:58
mathiazslangasek: should the backup directory be erased ? or create another one ?00:58
mathiazslangasek: the naming scheme of backup directory allow for one backup per package version.00:59
mathiazslangasek: could a timestampt be added to the directory name ?01:00
slangasekright; I don't think we want to overwrite in all cases, because in some of those cases that means overwriting a good backup with a bad01:00
slangasektimestamp could be ok, I suppose01:00
mathiazslangasek: if so what about proliferation of backup directories ?01:01
mathiazslangasek: It's a corner case though.01:01

hikenbootcan anyone tell me if the python provided in ubuntu has been packaged so one could select a minimum for use with xen and xen tools currently I am building a distro with  something called T2 which is based on  slackware and it has a 40 MB install of python that I would like to minimize and am looking for a distro that might have already done this work01:16
mathiazslangasek: hm - the issue comes from the database backup from /var/lib/ldap. Adding a timestamp is implemented in the script but it won't work as expected.01:19
slangasekmathiaz: because we need to be able to read from it again in a different script?01:19
mathiazslangasek: dumping a database and loading a database happened at different times01:19
mathiazslangasek: yes01:19
* slangasek nods01:19
mathiazslangasek: however the use of a timestamp is conditional01:20
mathiazslangasek: if OLD_VERSION is not set then a timestamp is used01:20
mathiazslangasek: so that's not a problem on upgrades.01:21
slangasekin this case, I guess $OLD_VERSION is set to the current version?01:21
mathiazslangasek: right01:21
mathiazslangasek: so the timestamp is never used IIUC.01:21
mathiazslangasek: and when you run dpkg-reconfigure slapd the second time, it fails.01:22
slangasekI guess it would be used if /var/lib/ldap somehow existed, but the package wasn't previously installed01:22
slangasekbut having it be used when $OLD_VERSION == $current_version sounds like it might be a good idea01:22
mathiazslangasek: may be - I'd have to look into that.01:23
mathiazslangasek: I've also read some code that checks for reconfigure as the mode01:23
mathiazslangasek: or checks for DEBCONF_RECONFIGURE01:24
slangasekreconfigure as the mode doesn't actually work today01:24
slangasekI'm not sure if DEBCONF_RECONFIGURE is something that gets set01:24
slangasekbut that could be a good option, yes01:24
mathiazslangasek: I think that DEBCONF_RECONFIGURE works.01:24

cjwatsonogra: it's updated from a daily cron job, IIRC12:16
ograah, cool12:16
cjwatsonoh, well, not sure if the mobile one is12:16
cjwatsonthe livefs buildds are12:16
ograthough that still doesnt solve the file naming12:16
StevenKThe mid one is, but that's for lpia only12:16
cjwatsonour livefses are renamed too12:16
cjwatsoncan't you just deal with it? :)12:16
StevenKI think it's keyed off $PROJECT, though12:17

pittiulaas: no, they aren't in the kernel any more12:40

ulaaspitti: very good. are packages rolled out already?12:40
pittiulaas: nivida-glx-{71,96,173,177}12:41
pittiulaas: jockey handles them quite nicely nowadays, so maybe just use the hardware drivers app12:41
pittiulaas: yes, they've been in intrepid for months12:41
stefanlsdis the jockey* stuff the preferred way?12:42
pittistefanlsd: it's the most GUI friendly way, anyway; and I appreciate feedback whether it works :)12:43
stefanlsdk. is it the default or something we should install?12:44
ulaaspitti: it does not for me.12:44
ulaaspitti: when i click install and turn on nothing happens.12:44
pittistefanlsd: we ship jockey by default, and nvidia detection and driver installation sohuld work out of the box12:45
pittiulaas: hm, interested in debugging it?12:45
ulaaspitti: thats why i use intrepid :)12:45
ulaashmm just clicked the older one on the list which was 17312:45
ulaasnow it downloads12:45
ulaaslemme get back with the results12:46
pittiulaas: which versions does it offer to you?12:46
ulaas177 and 17312:47
ulaas177 was already looked installed in synaptic12:47
pittiand both are disabled, and clicking on 177 doesn't do anything?12:47
ulaasso thats why clicking that one did not do anything but also did not report12:47
pittiulaas: so it was shown as disabled, the package is installed, and enabling it didn't work? (i. e. it was still shown as disabled afterwards)12:48
ulaaspitti: exactly12:48
pittiok, I'd like to debug this, it should certainly at least give you an error message12:48
ulaaspitti: i am your man... jockey just died on me now. i was trying to switch to 177 after a succesfull enable to 17312:49
pittiulaas: ok, let's do that in /query12:50

ograyeah, thats what i thought14:53
tjaaltonoh sorry, no it wouldn't14:53

loologra: There are many components involved14:55
loologra: One being drm14:55
ograwell, i'd like at least 2D14:55
ograwhich shouldnt need drm14:55
loologra: psb needs the psb drm for modesetting I think14:55
lool3D is yet another beast, but I can tell you for sure the kernel bits are in use even if you don't do 3D; and I think the psb drm is part of them14:56
ograthats the one that wont be ready before release, right ?14:57
loolNow the psb drm has been tentatively ported over by amitk for intrepid14:57
ograbut only to lpia i guess14:57
loolIt's in linux-lpia, which we could build for i38614:57
lool(which is why I suggested it should really be linux-intel-mid)14:57
ograit would be great to have in i38614:58
lool(or similar)14:58
loolNow, another bit which needs porting from hardy is ... libdrm14:58
loolAnd finally, xserver-xorg-video-psb might need an update in intrepid for xserver 1.5; not sure how things break there, but it's likely to take some little fixing at least14:58
amitklool: no it isn't in lpia yet. I was away all of last week in Portland.14:59

loolpsb is the responsability of Intel to provide, so it's nice if we get it from you, but many things seem to be required to get it to work   :-/15:01

loolsmarter, that's a good acronym15:03
ograbah, mobile-default-settings-0.4 missed the publisher by a minute15:04
ograso if i get it right a first step is to have the psb.ids file in the package, right ?15:11

tjaaltonit still won't build15:11
tjaaltonI gues..15:12

ograseb128, btw, is teher a way o get the show desktop button tranparent without much hacking ? (see http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogra/mobile/) ... not urgent for intrepid though, but if it would be a small thing i'd love to have it15:17
seb128ok, so not a buggy recommends on the GNOME side, good ;-)15:17

pittiactually, sane-utils should be as well now, it's a recommends of libsane16:52

jdstrandpitti: I needed 1.8.7 for the printer (well, at least not 1.8.2)16:56
jdongjdstrand: well right now I'm reasonably certain that char[500] in editing the description tags means big JPEG metadata does bad stuff too.16:56

pittikirkland: primarily because (1) to avoid the overloading of groups with assigning permissions, and (2) to allow programs to allow things to the user which he couldn't have in the default install17:24

kirklandpitti: is that doable?17:25
pittikirkland: so if we say "a local console user can use kvm" there isn't much to loose in terms of security17:25
kirklandpitti: i'm picking up kvm for soren while he's out on paternity leave17:25
pittikirkland: e. g. audio, usb, and firewire devices (/dev/bus/usb/..., for example) are accessible as root:plugdev/root:audio, and *additionally* for the current foreground session, via a dynamic ACL17:26
pittikirkland: we can say "foreground only", or for kvm "local session" (which would make more sense in this case, IMHO)17:27
jcastrokirkland: are you watching virt-manager while he's away too?17:27
kirklandjcastro: yeah, sort-of ;-)17:27
kirklandjcastro: more focus on kvm, but virt-manager too17:27
pittikirkland: so remote users can still be put into kvm (as now), or they get the relevant polkit privilege assigned in the PK GUI17:27
kirklandpitti: what can be done legally in the postinst?17:28
kirklandpitti: so that kvm works out of the box?17:28
pittikirkland: first, do you think such a semantics would make sense?17:28
kirklandpitti: i think "local users" does make sense17:29
kirklandpitti: and i think we can document that remote users would need kvm groupage17:29
kirklandpitti: we can add that to the Server Guide documentation17:29
jcastrokirkland: virt-manager currently has 75 open bugs, of which 0 are marked upstreamable, if you've got someone interested in at least determining if they're upstream that would really help.17:29
pittikirkland: (or using the PK GUI to assign the privilege)17:29
lucasis there a server with binary packages from (very) old ubuntu releases?17:30
kirklandjcastro: i'll go through virt-manager next...  i reduced the kvm queue from 63 to 43 yesterday, marking some duplicates, fixed, wont-fix; and getting a couple of minor patches sponsored17:30
lucaslike edgy?17:30
kirklandlucas: edgy is going to be tough to find...  it's unsupported17:30
jcastrolucas: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/17:31
kirklandlucas: dapper is still supported (and older than edgy) though17:31
jcastrooh, you mean packages.17:31
pittikirkland: did you ever see a hal fdi?17:31
lucasjcastro: that's ISO images, but apparently http://o-r.u.c/ubuntu/ has the source packages?17:31
kirklandpitti: negative17:31
pittikirkland: anyway, take a look at /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-acl-management.fdi17:31
cjwatsonlucas: should have the binaries too17:32
lucasah binary too. perfect.17:32
pittikirkland: that's an XML file which matches on hal devices and puts access_control.{file,type} attributes to it17:32
lucasthanks a lot to everybody ;)17:32
kirklandpitti: interesting17:32
cjwatsonLaunchpad used to have some of them but they had to clear up some space on the librarian recently. still has the old sources though17:32
jcastrokirkland: all that's needed to get started is at least opening an upstream task for it if it's determined to be upstream - even if you don't have a link to the upstream bugzilla bug.17:32
pittikirkland: there you see how hal adds e. g. access_control.type.sound to alsa devices17:32
pittikirkland: every hal device with the access_control will be considered for dynamic ACL management17:33
kirklandpitti: where are the possible values of these fields documented?17:33
kirklandjcastro: cool, i'll see what I can do17:33
kirklandjcastro: unfortunately, virt-manager kinda sucks, so most of us core kvm users tend to use the kvm command line :-/17:34
kirklandjcastro: i'll throw some attention at it this week, though17:34
pittikirkland: http://people.freedesktop.org/~david/hal-spec/hal-spec.html#spec-device-info describes the structure and syntax17:34
pittikirkland: hm, one problem is that current hal doesn't actually know about /dev/kvm, so we need to teach it about it17:34
pittikirkland: but that should be simple17:35
jcastrokirkland: if you can make a determination of what is upstream and what isn't I can find someone who cares about virt-manager enough to make the linkages.17:35
kirklandpitti: is that done in HAL, or in KVM?17:35
kirklandjcastro: sounds like a plan17:35
jcastrokirkland: if in bugs you find someone that cares about virt-manager send them my way and I'll convince them to help. :p17:35
kirklandpitti: so hal provides /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-acl-management.fdi ...  is that changed in the source package itself, or generated?17:35
pittikirkland: kvm should ship an FDI file which assings access_control.file=/dev/kvm and access_control.type=kvm, and an "access_control" capability17:36
jcastroright now it sticks out as "we're not even trying" wrt. forwarding bugs upstream.17:36
kirklandjcastro: well, i have some buddies that care about virt-manager, but they work for Red Hat :-P17:36
pittikirkland: hm, maybe .type=virtual_machine, or so (slightly more generic)17:36
pittikirkland: there's a second piece of the puzzle17:36
kirklandpitti: that makes sense17:36
pittikirkland: so the fdi says which devices are which type and declares it for ACL management17:37
pittikirkland: and /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/org.freedesktop.hal.device-access.policy assingns those types to a description and default values17:37
cjwatsonkirkland: virt-manager> my sentiments exactly17:37
pittikirkland: the existing one for cdrom looks fairly good for this use cases17:37
* kirkland snorts :-)17:38
pittikirkland: in principle kvm could ship its own .policy and .fdi, but if you prefer we can also patch hal for that17:38
kirklandcjwatson: <aside>I did get to play with Ubuntu inside Parallels on a Mac OSX machine...frigging great VM management interface</aside>17:39
kirklandpitti: i think it would make more sense inside of kvm17:39
kirklandpitti: or, there's one other option....17:39
kirklandpitti: we have two meta packages, ubuntu-virt-server, and ubuntu-virt-mgmt17:39
kirklandpitti: right now, they just depend on a couple of packages necessary to make virtualization 'useful'17:40
kirklandpitti: we intend on putting some tools there to simplify bridged networking setup, etc.17:40
pittikirkland: as for teaching hal about the device, you can call "sudo hal-device --add /some/sensible/UDI" for creating it, and "sudo hal-set-property" to add the access_control capability and access_control.file=/dev/kvm and access_control.type=cdrom17:40
kirklandpitti: i *think* what you're talking about makes more sense in kvm itself, but i just thought i'd throw that out there17:41
pittikirkland: then, after logging out and back in, you should get an ACL on /dev/kvm17:41
pittikirkland: yes, it would avoid centralizing knowledge about /dev/kvm in hal, shipping its own snippet is perfectly reasonable17:41
kirklandpitti: okay, so the hal-device && hal-set-property commands are what would need to be called in kvm's postinst?17:42
pittikirkland: and an FDI for /dev/kvm should be in kvm, not in a metapacakge17:42
pittikirkland: no, that's just for playing around17:42
kirklandpitti: understood on the kvm vs. metapackage bit17:42
pittikirkland: hal-device --add is not persistent17:42
cjwatsongar, why does germinate work when run manually on drescher but not when run from cron.germinate?17:42
pittikirkland: but you can use it from the shell without recompiling anything17:42
jdstrand'virt-manager sucks' is kinda strong-- I use it daily...17:43
pitticjwatson: $PATH or so?17:43
kirklandpitti: okay, so the work item is 1) add .policy and .fdi to kvm17:43
kirklandpitti: 2) (do something in postinst)17:43
cjwatsonpitti: don't believe so, we consistently just use the germinate from /usr/bin17:43
cjwatsonI don't think there are any other installations kicking around17:43
pittikirkland: if you got it working with a manual hal-device add (working fdi/policy), I'll help you with getting the device into hal permanently17:44
cjwatsonpitti: and it's not broken as in "completely fails to work" anyway, it's hitting some kind of infinite recursion in the dependency resolver17:44
kirklandjdstrand: hold on now...  quote me correctly17:44
kirklandjdstrand: "virt-manager kinda sucks"17:44
jdstrandheh, true enough17:44
kirklandpitti: awesome, sounds like a deal17:45
kirklandpitti: let me try this out17:45
pittikirkland: btw, that's chapter 3 in the link I gave you17:45
pitti(directly after the fdi spec)17:45
kirklandpitti: cool, i'll dig there17:45
kirklandpitti: how much longer are you around today?17:46
pittikirkland: probably some 2 hours at least (my wife just left for meeting with a friend, so I'll have some time this evening :) )17:48
pittikirkland: i just don't feel very well, so I'll call it a day in 2 hours or so17:49
kirklandpitti: understood17:49
kirklandpitti: i'm updating my test hardware right now to latest intrepid17:49
kirklandpitti: i never do this sort of testing on my primary laptop :-P17:49
pittikirkland: hal-device --add is purely temporary, don't worry17:50
pittikirkland: oh, hold on, you need --disable-purge-rootfs --really-dont-zap17:50
kirklandpitti: great options17:51
kirklandpitti: is there a --please-dont-fry-my-disk option too?17:51
pittikirkland: uh, forgot that, sorry17:51
kirklandpitti: when you say "you should get an ACL on /dev/kvm", do you mean an extended attribute that I can view with getfacl?  or something else?18:09
pittikirkland: yes, I mean a file system ACL (getfacl, and little + in ls -l)18:10
kirklandpitti: thx18:10
zulslangasek: ping I know you are busy but did you have a chance to look at Christian Perrier's email from pkg-samba ml?18:13

ahasenackbut the dpkg logs show the failure while installing some 1.0.18 version18:27
kirklandpitti: should `hal-device --add /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/kvm` return, or just run in the foreground?18:31
pittikirkland: no, it's an one-shoot thing, afterwards you should see it in lshal18:32

tkamppeterBut note that it is a conffile, so if you accidentally remove it, an update will not recover the file.18:45
tkamppeterjdstrand, pitti: HPLIP depends only on libsane, not on any SANE frontends. Should I let it depend on xsane | kooka and/or sane-utils?18:48
jdstrandtkamppeter: so it sounds like hp-check complaining about hpaio was a false negative18:50
jdstrandtkamppeter: sounds like it just checks dll.conf and nothing else18:50
jdstrandtkamppeter: note that I only used hp-check at all because the wiki told me too, and there was no feedback that the (awesome btw) auto0-configuration of the printer also setup the scanner18:51

mathiazahasenack: I'm going to look into the landscape-client bugs.19:23
ahasenackmathiaz: I don't understand those apport reports, it's the third or fourth one which reports one package in the summary but the logs show a different one19:24
mathiazahasenack: radix: did you get a chance to comment on my suggestion to run a daily cron job to update smart package data instead of hourly ?19:24
mathiazahasenack: right - I haven't looked at the log yet - but apport is not an issue here.19:25
radixmathiaz: I didn't, sorry, I have been off the computer for being sick19:25
ahasenackI just commented on the cronjob itself19:25
radixmathiaz: niemeyer probably has a comment about the frequency of the job19:25
mathiazahasenack: right - slangasek suggestion should also be implemented.19:26
ahasenackmathiaz: having the daemon run smart update?19:26
radixI'm stepping away again19:26
mathiazahasenack: just checking if landscape-client is running is enough for now19:26
ahasenackright, so I pasted something for that19:27
mathiazahasenack: great.19:27
mathiazahasenack: I think your suggestion for the cronjob works well.19:27
=== njpatel is now known as njpatel_away
mathiazahasenack: I'd like to have feedback on the frequency of the cron job.19:27
ahasenackmathiaz: so, I don't know the origin of that frequency or why it's hourly. I guess there is an expectation of things to work "faster" with landscape, since there is someone sitting in front of a web ui19:31
ahasenackmathiaz: also considering it's a paid service19:31
slangasekthe frequency doesn't seem unusual at all to me19:31
niemeyerThere's also an important distinction between Smart updates and APT updates19:32
niemeyerWhen smart update is run, it will download the Release file19:32
niemeyerIf the Release file has the same digest of the one previously downloaded, nothing else is downloaded19:32
slangasekI'm not sure that's actually different than apt?19:32
ahasenackI thought apt did that too19:32
niemeyerSo the actual operation is quite lightweight when there are no changes19:33
niemeyerI don't think so19:33
niemeyerBut maybe it changed since I last looked at it19:33
mathiazniemeyer: apt and update-notifier are run on a daily basis19:33
slangasekI'm pretty sure apt is smart enough to not re-download unchanged files19:33
niemeyerIf it does, even better :-)19:33
liwslangasek, it is19:33
niemeyerslangasek: I think it does that based on file timing only19:34
niemeyerAnyway.. I'm sure APT is great. :-)19:34
niemeyerWhat's the actual problem we're trying to prevent?19:35
mathiazniemeyer: I've asked about that yesterday -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/49783/19:35
mathiazniemeyer: the concern is to put too much load on the servers and mirrors19:35
slangasekmathiaz: I agree that if you're managing a bunch of workstations centrally, you want the average latency to be much lower than 12h19:35
niemeyermathiaz: Well, I agree.. it would consume less resources from the server19:35
niemeyermathiaz: The question, though, is if it makes an important difference or not19:36
niemeyermathiaz: It does make a difference for Landscape usability19:36
mathiazniemeyer: the main raise I'm asking is that the default ubuntu install (with apt) doesn't update on a hourly basis.19:37
niemeyermathiaz: If you're concerned about it, we can ask elmo about it19:37
niemeyermathiaz: It's a slightly different use case I guess19:37
mathiazniemeyer: right - if it makes a difference for landscape usability than a hourly cron job is the best option19:37
niemeyermathiaz: We can always fire APT/Synaptic/whatever and get the current infomration19:38
niemeyermathiaz: For a server-side solution that's not so practical19:38

slangasekhmm, on-demand triggering of an update check isn't possible?19:40
niemeyerslangasek: It is definitely possible, but it's a bad UI19:40
slangasekok.  I imagine it would be a suboptimal user experience regardless, due to the latency of checking19:41
niemeyerslangasek: Try to imagine something like "The information you're looking at is 20h old.  If you want to know the current updates, click on Update All Systems and come back in a few minutes."19:41

mathiazahasenack: it seems that most of the apport bugs are due to the fact they're not using the latest package.19:45
kirklandpitti: well, i'd expect the extended acl would show up before I restart a session, no?19:45
kirklandpitti: i'd think that change should be immediate19:45
pittikirkland: no, they aren't ATM; the acl helper just reacts to ConsoleKit changes19:46
pittikirkland: but you can fake it19:46
pittikirkland: run 'ck-launch-session'19:46
ahasenackmathiaz: you mean latest landscape-c* package or latest apport package?19:46
directhexpitti, you've sponsored a couple of my mono-related merges in the past, is there any chance you could work your magic on one? it's the last obsolete package in intrepid's core mono stack19:46
mathiazahasenack: oh right - I see what you mean now :D19:47
pittikirkland: that creates another COnsoleKit session for you and launches a sub-shell in it19:47
slangasekmathiaz: I think the only confusion was that apport will list the currently-installed package version in the report, but the log shows the problem for a previous failed upgrade attempt19:47
pittidirecthex: please assign the sponsor bug to me, can do19:47
slangasekapport's analysis of upgrade failures seems to be a bit suboptimal19:47
ahasenackslangasek: that's what I thought19:47

pittidirecthex: ah, got the bug mail19:52
ahasenackmathiaz: about other landscape-client bugs, I'm puzzled by #270007. I don't know how or what triggers landscape-client (or any of its components) to be run by non-root19:55
ahasenackoh, wait, wrong bug number19:55
ahasenackmathiaz: some people said they didn't try to run landscape-client as a regular user: the crash was just there19:56
ahasenackwe have 5 duplicates of that one already19:57
kirklandpitti: dude, i think its working!!!!19:57
pittijames_w, seb128: so, is there any better rationale than "it's the newest version" for consolekit which I could give in the FF exception request?19:57
pittikirkland: yay!19:57
seb128pitti: being close of upstream makes easier to send them bugs which is nice especially when everybody is busy on the ubuntu side to backport interesting changes19:58
kirklandpitti: yup, it's working, launched a kvm as "dustin", full acceleration19:58
kirklandpitti: ext acl's present19:58
kirklandpitti: now what?  :-)19:58
pittikirkland: so, next step is to use a real "type", such as "kvm" or maybe something more generic; maybe "vm_host" or "virtual_machine" or so?19:58
seb128pitti: and that also reduces upstream rants about ubuntu shipping outdated versions ;-)19:59
kirklandpitti: okay, what's the advantage of going generic here, with something like "virtual_machine" rather than specific, like "kvm"?20:00
directhexpitti, sorry to single you out for it, but the thought of intrepid shipping with a doc package documenting something 20,000 revisions older than the actual software fills me with bile and rage. and strangely it seems a mono-related package isn't the top of anyone's sponsorship lists20:01
pittikirkland: as for creating the device, there's two options: patch hal to create it, or add the hal-device --add call to the init script (and thus introduce a hal dependency to the init script)20:01
kirklandpitti: kvm init script sounds most appropriate, no?20:02
kirklandpitti: or do you prefer them to be concentrated?20:02
kirklandpitti: uh-oh.... this might be a sticking point20:04
kirklandpitti: i seem to recall some resistance of hal on the server :-/20:04
pittikirkland: and you e. g. couldn't restart hal after kvm is running20:04
pitti(sorry if that came through twice, my network just had yet another glitch)20:05
mathiazkirkland: correct - that's the main reason for the split of landscape-client20:05
mathiazkirkland: landscape-common is installed by default on the server, but doesn't pull in hal20:06
mathiazkirkland: while landscape-client pulls in hal (and dbus, etc...)20:06
mathiazahasenack: yes - that's because they20:06
mathiazahasenack: yes - that's because they're running intrepid and got upgraded during the dev cycle20:06
pittikirkland: there's a third way which is even cleaner IMHO, but slightly more effort20:06
kirklandmathiaz: i've worked a solution with pitti to handle the requirement we have for group membership in kvm20:07
kirklandmathiaz: but it depends on hal to handle the perms20:07
mathiazahasenack: they got 18-0ubuntu2 which fails to install20:07
kirklandpitti: i'm listening......20:07
ahasenackmathiaz: right, but it's a different bug. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/landscape-client/+bug/26887920:07
ubottuUbuntu bug 268879 in landscape-client "Shouldn't crash when run as user instead of root" [Low,Confirmed]20:08
mathiazahasenack: and then upgraded to 2120:08
ahasenackmathiaz: that error is about running landscape-c* as non-root20:08
ahasenackmathiaz: and I have no idea how that could happen other than a user directly invoking the program20:08
geserI see you are discussing how to add acls on a device for the user. Is there some good guide how to do it? I want finally fix bug 57755 that way but I'm missing some starting point on how to do it.20:08
ubottuLaunchpad bug 57755 in gnupg "Udev Rules for SmartCard Support" [Wishlist,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/5775520:08
mathiazahasenack: hm - I'll have a look at it.20:08
mathiazkirkland: right - I read the conversation - I think it makes sense for a desktop environment20:08
pittikirkland: so, you could write the hal-device --add into a shell script which is installed as a hal addon (/usr/lib/hal/kvm-device or so)20:08
mathiazkirkland: however for a server environment it may not work well :/20:09
kirklandmathiaz: good point20:09
kirklandpitti: that sounds much better20:09
pittikirkland: and in your fdi, add the addon to the computer hal entry20:09
pittikirkland: then the addon will be called on hal startup20:09
pittikirkland: and you can ship all parts of it in the kvm package, completely independent of hal20:09
pittikirkland: and it's just text files20:10
pittikirkland: yes, in fact I think that's how it should be done20:10
kirklandpitti: given what mathiaz has mentioned, we can add a "Suggests hal" to kvm, but we don't want to necessarily bring it in20:10
kirklandpitti: so i think this enablement should go into hal rather than kvm20:10
pittikirkland: right; if you don't have hal installed, you'd use the group method20:10
kirklandpitti: thus, if a user has "hal", we use this, otherwise, what you just said :-)20:10
liwmvo, ping?20:10
pittikirkland: why? it's just shipping three text files20:10
pittikirkland: (fdi, .policy, shell script)20:10
kirklandpitti: okay, and nothing that actually does anything with them20:11
pittithey are like 100 bytes each, but they leave the knowledge and policy in the package they belong to20:11
pittikirkland: so, if you really don't like them being there, we can add it to our hal package, too20:11
kirklandpitti: the code that codes them will be in hal20:11
pittiI'm not too fussed abou tit20:11
pittibut I think we should maintain policy together with the packages, that seems cleaner to me20:11
kirklandpitti: i think those 3 files would be fine in kvm, as long as we avoid a dependency on hal20:12
kirklandpitti: fair enough20:12
pittikirkland: yes, if you don't have hal installed, you'd just have an extra 3 text files laying around20:12
kirklandpitti: okay, can i somehow "export" those files from my working setup?20:12
pittino dependency needed (well, a suggests dounds fine)20:12
kirklandpitti: that sounds perfectly reasonable20:12
kirklandpitti: agree on the Suggests20:12
pittikirkland: copy the hal-device call into a shell script (/usr/lib/hal/debian-setup-keyboard might be a good template)20:13
pittikirkland: and once you wrote a .policy and .fdi file that work, just copy them into the package and install them, yes20:14
mvoliw: pong20:14
pittikirkland: for bonus points, create a .policy.in and intltoolize it, for translation love, but don't worry too much about that20:14
liwmvo, would you be willing to sponsor an upload of system-cleaner tonight or tomorrow?20:14
mvoliw: sure, is the bzr current, can I upload from it?20:15
pittikirkland: use the existing .fdi/.policy files as a template, that should be easy then20:15
pittikirkland: hardest part is probably to invent a sensible name for "type" :)20:15
liwmvo, not yet -- I'm still pondering on how to deal with having a single apt.Cache instance (after being side tracked by my real estate agent showing my apartment to a potential buyer)20:16
kirklandpitti: i'm inclined to use "kvm" for the same reasons that "cdrom" is "cdrom" and not "optical_drive"20:16
kirklandpitti: but I really don't care20:16
mvoliw: sure, no problem20:16
pittikirkland: they are sticky in the sense that you could manually assign the privilege to somebody, thus it's hard to change it later20:17
pittikirkland: but kvm sounds fine20:17
mvoliw: just give me a shout when its ready20:17
liwmvo, I'll do that, thank you20:17
superm1kirkland, perhaps a dumb question, but why would there be opposition to including hal in server installs in the first place?20:17
kirklandpitti: i'm trying to think of what kind of virtualization device might pop up in the future, that would work along side kvm?20:17
pittikirkland: virtualbox?20:17
* kirkland points superm1 to mathiaz 20:17
kirklandpitti: does that have a device or something associated with it?20:18
pittikirkland: vmware has them as well, but I think it's installed as something insane, like 777 or so20:18
liwsuperm1, hal is a moving part, and the more you have, the more likely it is that one of them breaks20:18
kirklandpitti: okay, that's perfectly reasonable to me20:18
pittikirkland: it's been a while, but IIRC yes20:18
kirklandpitti: it would be advantageous to do this in a way that other virt solutoins can leverage20:18
pittianyone using virtualbox here?20:18
pittikirkland: they could use the same .policy file, which is beneficial for shaing translations20:18
pittikirkland: they'd need a separate fdi, but those are cheap (no user visible strings)20:19
superm1liw, but what about HAL brings up the potential for breakage is what i'm getting at?20:19
kirklandpitti: "virt-hw"20:20
kirklandpitti: "virtualization" or "virtualisation" :-)20:20
liwsuperm1, everything -- it's code in the box, and that means there's a risk it will break20:20
kirklandpitti: "virtual-machine"20:20
liwsuperm1, it's not hal in particular20:20
pittikirkland: (not that it doesn't need to be overly short; nobody ever types this)20:20
kirklandgrep access_control.type /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-acl-management.fdi20:20
pittikirkland: well, virtual-machine in particular sounds a bit misleading to me20:20
kirklandpitti: those look like the others in use20:20
kirklandpitti: sound, cdrom, camera, scanner, pda20:21
siretartpitti: I used to use virtual box. why do you ask?20:21
pittikirkland: vm-host or virtualization WFM20:21
kirklandpitti: "vm-acceleration"20:21
pittisiretart: there's something like /dev/virtualbox, right?20:21
pittikirkland: well, it's really vm-make-bearable-in-the-first-place :)20:22
kirklandpitti: ;-)20:22
superm1pitti, yeah /dev/vboxdrv20:22
pittikirkland: (I *told* you it'd be the hardest part!)20:22
siretartpitti: yes, I think it was called /dev/vboxdrv and /dev/vboxnet or something20:22
pittisuperm1: cheers20:22
kirklandpitti: no kidding ;-)20:22
superm1pitti, it used to need permissions management, but no longer does20:22
pittisuperm1: how does it now? ConsoleKit magic or 777?20:23
pittisuperm1: I still remember adding myself to a vbox group, but that might be half a year ago already20:23
superm1pitti, upstream requires that you use their hardening system on the package and run the VirtualBox binary suid20:23
kirklandpitti: "virtual-machine-extensions"20:23
superm1pitti, its as of the last release or two that they added these requirements20:23
pittisuperm1: eww; I thought being able to run a vm as user would be a great thing20:24
superm1pitti, yeah wishful thinking20:25
pittiseb128, james_w: sorry, repeated network outage; did I miss a reply from you wrt. ck 0.3 justification?20:27
james_w<seb128> pitti: being close of upstream makes easier to send them bugs which is nice especially when everybody is busy on the ubuntu side to backport interesting changes20:27
james_wseb128> pitti: and that also reduces upstream rants about ubuntu shipping outdated versions ;-)20:28
james_wI don't really have anything to add20:28
pittijames_w: wel,l the latter doesn't count, that's always the case :)20:28
pittijames_w: thanks for the quoting20:28
seb128pitti: I closed IRC since but I said basically that "since nobody is actively working on it in ubuntu and backporting change we would benefit of having the current version to be able to send bugs upstream without getting a "could you try a recent version" reply"20:28
james_wwe have a bunch of crashers that are beyond me, and I would like to ask them, and so having them reproduced on the latest version would help me there20:28
seb128imho consolekit crash too often for something which is a base infrastructure component20:29
seb128ie when it crashes you can't get credentials since you have no session20:29
seb128and since we have nobody working actively on it having something we can send upstream would be better20:30
slangasekcjwatson, pitti, mathiaz: is landscape sorted now to the point where it should be re-added to desktop-common?20:30
kirklandpitti: do you think i need the /etc/default/kvm conffile?20:31
pittislangasek: landscape-common should be fine, except that I seriously question it's Pre-Depends20:31
pittimathiaz: ^ any idea why it has those pre-depends? that looks just wrong20:31
pittislangasek: s/it's/its/, duh20:32
slangasekmm, indeed20:32
pittisame for -client20:32
mvooh, is the plan to re-add it to -desktop? then I need to update update-manager, it is removing it on desktop installs (the sub that is)20:32
slangasekmvo: it was removed from desktop due to a transient installability issue during a key testing window; AFAIK it's supposed to go back in20:33
pittislangasek: hm, indeed, I thought we just want to ship it on servers? or has that changed again?20:33
pitticjwatson: halp plz20:33
mvoI read the last mail exchange that way (that its for the servers)20:34
slangasekpitti: you thought that based on what?  That had never been my understanding, and I thought mdz's last email confirmed that it had always been intended to be included on the desktop20:34
slangasekit was in the desktop-common seed, after all20:34
pittislangasek: based on that phone confcall, but ICBW20:34
slangasekah, well, I wasn't on that phone call, so it didn't happen ;)20:35
kirklandpitti: what about "virt-technology"20:35
kirklandpitti: which is inline with AMD-V and Intel-VT20:35
pittikirkland: well, virt-hw is a bit less marketingish (or what about "awesome-virt")20:35
tkamppeterjdstrand, pitti, hp-check does not know about the Debianism(?)/Ubuntuism /etc/sane.d/dll.d/. It only knows about /etc/sane.d/dll.conf.20:35
kirklandpitti: i'm good with "virt-hw" if you ware20:36
slangasekpitti: who all was on that call, then?20:36
pittikirkland: sure; btw, I don't have an /etc/default/kvm20:36
kirklandpitti: no, it doesn't exist20:36
pittislangasek: hm, niemeyer, cjwatson, me, someone else I forgot20:36
kirklandpitti: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/49804/20:36
slangasekfrankly, I find it very strange that we would give desktop farms less landscape support out-of-the-box than servers, particularly given the push-back on landscape deps has been from the server team20:36
tkamppeterIf the Ubuntu Wiki tells about hp-check you should modify it telling that hp-check does not know about our SANE changes.20:37
pittislangasek: ok, let's add back -common then; that might have been my misunderstanding (-common is at least useful to some degree, while -client doesn't give you anything in the default install)20:37
tkamppeterHP's MF devices on USB are fulkl Plug'n'Print (and Plug'n'Scan) under Ubuntu.20:37
pittikirkland: you need the hal-device --add call; and in that you can feed the properties to stdin20:38
pittikirkland: (more efficient than calling hal-set-p three times)20:38
kirklandpitti: good point, let me rework20:38
pittikirkland: feed it "foo.bar = 'baz'" lines20:38
slangasekpitti: hmm, what's the net size difference if we include -client as well, and are certain that we don't want it included by default?  I didn't think -common gave you anything by default either, unless you were a landscape customer20:38
pittislangasek: I was told that "common" has a "sysinfo" component which works everywhere20:39
jdstrandtkamppeter (and pitti): when I get a chance, I set this up again on my Intrepid laptop, and update the wiki accordingly20:39
slangasekI would rather put in -client for the moment if there's any question at all, so that we see what the size constraints are20:39
pittislangasek: and I'm not certain (that's why I called cjwatson for help)20:39
slangasekok :-)20:39
pittislangasek: right20:39
slangasekok, so until we get a clarification from cjwatson, I'm going to add -client back into the seed so we can see what it does to sizes20:40
pittislangasek: well, it pulls in smart and twisted, another 500 KB or so; not too bad, but if we can avoid it, I'd like to do it20:40
slangasekthen if we replace it with -common later, the worst case is that we have free space that we have to fill20:40
mvook, then I remove the update-manager rule on it again20:40
kirklandpitti: do I need to append to info.capabilities, or is overwrite okay?20:41
pittikirkland: overwriting should be ok, it's entirely under your control20:41
kirklandpitti: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/49806/20:41
pittislangasek: what a luxury problem :)20:42
kirklandpitti: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/49808/20:42
pittikirkland: (isn't it <<EOF? )20:42
slangasekpitti: exactly :)20:42
kirklandpitti: ah yes ;-)20:42
pittikirkland: restart hal, and sudo execute it, to test20:43
kirklandpitti: hmm, no luck yet20:48
pittikirkland: property setting doesn't work?20:49
kirklandpitti: the script executed correctly20:50
kirklandpitti: and # hal-device  | grep kvm20:50

kirklandlooks right20:50
kirklandbut I don't have access to the kvm as 'dustin'20:50
kirklandand i did restart my session20:50
superm1pitti, will bumping these extra bluez packages that were introduced in intrepid require a MIR?  the same functionality got split out into plugins, so they were split into extra binary packages that ended up in universe20:54
pittikirkland: hm, where's the control.type?20:54
superm1*bumping = moving them into main20:54
pittisuperm1: no, they don't need an MIR, just dependencies to them20:54
pittisuperm1: I already moved them to main20:55
superm1pitti, ah okay.  well i'm sorting out a different bug on bluez so i'll get the dependencies added for them too at the same time. thanks20:55
pittikirkland: and did you set access_control.type to cdrom or virt-whatever? (in the latter case you need a matching FDI and a .policy)20:55
kirklandpitti: i thought it was "access_control.type"20:55
pittikirkland: yes, I'm just lazy20:55
pittikirkland: actually...20:55
kirklandpitti: ah, that's probably it20:55
pittikirkland: hang on20:56
pittikirkland: if you set the correct properties right away, you don't need a separate .fdi file20:56
kirklandthat sounds like a good plan20:56
pittikirkland: i. e. everything that the .fdi file would merge to that devices can be set right at the hal-device --add call20:56
kirklandpitti: sounds simpler20:57
pittikirkland: but you still need to add the "access_control" capability20:57
pittikirkland: (the one which the fdi merged)20:57
pittikirkland: so it should work with type == cdrom, and adding the capability20:57
pittikirkland: if that works, change crdom to virt-awesome and add a corresponding .policy20:57
mathiazpitti: slangasek: about the pre-depends in landscape: the reason is outlined in bug 26883820:58

pittiseems it didn' thit yet?21:05
kirklandpitti: i think the problem is in info.capabilities = 'access_control'21:05
kirklandpitti: that needs to be an "append", rather than an "overwrite" as I mentioned before21:05
kirklandpitti: is there a += ?21:06
pittikirkland: well, it needs to be an array, not a string21:06
kirklandpitti: how does that look in the heredoc ?21:06
pittikirkland: I don't know; hal-device claims it's using lshal syntax, so maybe "info.capabilities = {'access_control'}" works?21:06
pittikirkland: if not, just use hal-set-property, it's not a problem21:07

sebnertseliot: you broke again my 3D (nvidia) xD21:29
tseliotsebner: can you file a bugreport? I'll have a look at it tomorrow21:29
sebnertseliot: sure. just wanted to blame you ^^ (don't take it seriously) ;)21:30
tseliotsebner: ;)21:33
siretartKeybuk: I disagree that vserver is being broken in this regard. the vserver instances don't have the mknod capability on purpose and udev's postinst is the only package in the archive insisting to have that capability21:33
Keybukthat's fair enough21:33
Keybukin which case your patch should have either21:33
norsettodoko: when you have time, could you look at bug 273677? I'm not 100% sure that that fix would be correct21:33

Keybuk1) skipped device creation on vserver21:33
Keybukor even better21:33
seb128hey norsetto21:33
Keybuk2) attempted it, and ignored *only* EPERM *if* on vserver21:34
norsettoseb128: hi seb, any task for me ;-)?21:34
seb128norsetto: thanks for your work on the desktop team organisation, I've been really busy on the GNOME 2.24 updates but I'll reply on the list tomorrow21:34
Keybukinstead your patch ignores utterly genuine failures21:34
seb128norsetto: how do you get the list of packages and versions now? I think we should have a collection of watch files in bzr21:34
norsettoseb128: well, there is still a lot to be done on the wiki pages I'm afraid21:34
siretartKeybuk: can udev.postinst safely assume that /proc is being mounted?21:35
seb128norsetto: this way we could easily update packages list and the series numbers21:35
norsettoseb128: for most packages I just use ftp.gnome.org, for the depends I have some sort of "watch" files21:35
Keybuksiretart: I suspect many packages already assume that, yes ;)21:35
Keybukit seems like a valid assumption to me21:35
seb128norsetto: we need to figure a way to claim updates though, we want something which allow to list packages which have usual updaters and those which can be claimed by the first to start working on the update21:36
norsettoseb128: I can look at adding a tick box to say "this update is being worked on, but then I would have to save the results locally since the page is regenerated daily21:38
norsettoseb128: dunno if I can do that with just javascript, have to check it out21:39
siretartKeybuk: okay, in that case I'd like to add a check to grep for ^VxId in /proc/self/status and skip the device creation if found. is that acceptable to you?21:40
Keybuksiretart: yup, entirely21:40
siretartKeybuk: VxId contains the "Context Id" of vservers21:40
seb128norsetto: let me think about that and comment the list tomorrow, what do you think about using a directory of watch files to describe the packages and versions to list?21:40
norsettoseb128: if we have a list of usual updaters I can add those very easily to the page21:41
siretartKeybuk: okay, I'll implement then that change21:41
seb128norsetto: can easily do, we just need to figure where to store it, probably bzr, not sure if we should use the ubuntu-desktop or the desktop-bugs team though21:42
norsettoseb128: it won't hurt, mind you that not all have a watch file right now21:42
norsettoseb128: ubuntu-desktop looks reasonable to me21:42
seb128right, but having the watch in the sources is annoying21:42
seb128it requires changing the source, which doesn't work when we sync on debian which tracks only stable version21:43
seb128and also require uploads to do changes21:43
seb128it would be easier to have the watch in bzr somewhere, we could do changes easily there21:43
seb128ubuntu-desktop has limited commit access where desktop-bugs is rather open to contributors21:43
seb128so it depends if we want some moderation or let contributors do changes21:44
norsettoseb128: for watch files there is not much they can screw up I guess21:44
Keybuksiretart: of course, I'm not even sure how you expect a vserver to boot with that change <g>21:44
Keybuksince it won't have /lib/udev/devices/null21:45
seb128norsetto: right, but on another side there is no so many changes and it's not really up to contributors to decide what packages the team is working on or the series to use21:45
siretartKeybuk: vservers have a rather special boot procedure. they don't use sysvinit nor upstart, but a custom "fakeinit" process.21:45
Keybukbut they use udev?21:46
siretartno. why should they?21:46
Keybukerr, if they're not using udev21:46
Keybukwhy is a failure to install udev a problem? :p21:46
siretartthink of vservers like 'chroot on steriods'21:46
slangasekpitti: well, looks like the latest GNOME drop already ate up any space we would use for landscape-client on the liveCD, hmm21:47
norsettoseb128: hmmm, having warnings in the wiki (and other appropriate places) and reminding at desktop meeting won't be enough you mean?21:47
siretartudev is installed by debootstrap, no? and has a rather large amount of reverse dependencies. (*sigh*)21:47
Keybuksiretart: well, yes, it's a required part of our system ;)21:47
Keybuksounds like vservers aren't even Ubuntu21:48
siretartchicken&egg problem, eh?21:48
Keybuk"DSA keys not accepted anymore" oh, fd.o21:48
siretartI maintain a (small) vserver farm running hardy here just fine, btw.21:48
siretartsince warty!21:49
seb128norsetto: no, I mean the watch updates are not often and it's probably better to have some moderation than let any bug triager to be able to do changes21:49
Keybukbut it can't be Ubuntu if it doesn't use things like sysvinit/upstart and udev <g>21:49
siretartit can be21:49
norsettoseb128: ah yes, if its bug triager please, don't :-)21:49
seb128desktop-bugs is the team for triagers21:50
seb128rather ubuntu-desktop then ;-)21:50
norsettoseb128: agreed!21:50
Nafallosiretart: they've been running hardy since warty? :-P21:50
slangasekNafallo: f33r the power of vservers21:51
Nafalloservers from the future! :-P21:51
Nafallosee.. there are reasons I like bare-metal the best ;-)21:51
norsettoseb128: I was thinking maybe about another possibility, I could scan the TODO list and if we agree that all updates have to be loggen there, I can use that info when making the packages page21:51
Keybukbare metal makes the best restraints21:51
siretartKeybuk: just to make sure we don't play ping pong here longer, I'm going to upload this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/49839/ (unless you object now, that is)21:56
siretartI expect this to be fairly safe, and even create the devices if /proc is not mounted21:57
Hydranthow do I regenerate ld.so.conf after putting an entry into ld.so.conf.d ?22:00
mathiazahasenack: is there a reason why in the cronjob you 2> /dev/null ?22:02
mathiazahasenack: I refer the landscape-client cronjob22:02
ahasenackmathiaz: well22:02
ahasenackmathiaz: not really now that I think of it22:03
ahasenackmathiaz: fear probably22:03
mathiazahasenack: if there is an error I'd rather have it printed22:03
ahasenackemailed, in this case22:03
mathiazahasenack: right22:03
ahasenackmathiaz: the worst case would be a bug or some other condition which would happen every time. In this case, this would mean an email every hour22:06
niemeyermathiaz,andreas: I think there was some kind of issue that actually lead us to do it22:07
siretarthow are (former) e1000e users supposed to get their nic working if e1000 doesn't work for them? is there a (non-obvious) workaround somehow?22:07
niemeyerAbout buffer size, IIRC22:07
niemeyermathiaz: If possible, I recommend not changing this script too much at this point22:08
niemeyermathiaz: We can perhaps review this for the next release, if you'd like to, but we won't have time to figure out issues at this point22:09
slangaseksiretart: downgrade the kernel22:09
mathiazniemeyer: hm. It's just a cron job.22:09
mathiazniemeyer: right - I get what you mean.22:10
niemeyermathiaz: Yes, it is, and I do remember that the 2>/dev/null was added to prevent the process from locking up.22:10
mathiazniemeyer: ok22:10
niemeyermathiaz: We can look for the bug and try to recall what was the problem, and fix it in a different way if you'd like to22:11
mathiazniemeyer: well - it's a bug in smart22:11
niemeyermathiaz: But we've been changing landscape-client in a different way every day in the last several weeks, so I'd like to try to walk towards stabilization as much as possible22:11
niemeyermathiaz: It may be, and it may not be22:12
niemeyermathiaz: It may also be about the way in which stderr and stdout are read by the parent process22:12
mathiazniemeyer: right - in that case it's a bug in crond.22:12
mathiazniemeyer: I don't see how this is related to landscape-client though.22:13
niemeyermathiaz: All I want is to keep the cronjob working.  If you promise it will work, you can do anything you want with it.  If we get locked up processes that'll be *really* *really* bad.22:14
siretartslangasek: to 2.6.24?22:14
mathiazniemeyer: right.22:14
ogradont forget that we dont have any mailserver on desktop ... in case landscape-client is installed there ,,,22:14
kirklandany other hal experts here, in pitti's absence?22:20
norsettodoes anyone know where pycentral installs pth files!?22:21
superm1kirkland, maybe post your question to pitti and if someone else knows the answer before pitti gets back they'll speak up?22:23
kirklandsuperm1: ;-)22:23
kirklandsuperm1: i'm trying to figure out what runs the stuff in /usr/lib/hal/*22:23
superm1kirkland, as in what executes it directly, or as in how to get hal to execute it?22:25
kirklandsuperm1: if i run my script in there by hand, i get exactly what i want22:26
kirklandsuperm1: now, i'm trying to figure out how to make that happen automagically on boot22:26
superm1okay so more so the latter then22:26
kirklandsuperm1: perhaps it just goes in the kvm init script?22:26
superm1kirkland, you'll need to set an info.addons key i believe22:26
superm1kirkland, and for the udi22:26
kirklandsuperm1: oh, maybe that's it22:27
kirklandi had info.callouts.add22:27
superm1if I look at lshal output for say my lcd_panel, i get a key that looks like this http://paste.ubuntu.com/49845/22:27
superm1where the addon in /usr/lib/hal is hald-addon-dell-backlight22:27
kirklandk, let me try that22:27
kirklandsuperm1: that's not quite it...  http://paste.ubuntu.com/49847/22:36
superm1kirkland, well is there actually a device that is showing up to identify that you are running kvm though?22:37
kirklandsuperm1: do you mean, does /dev/kvm exist?  it does.22:37
=== beuno_ is now known as beuno
kirklandsuperm1: but `hal-device | grep kvm` doesn't show any matches22:38
kirklandsuperm1: it's still not running /usr/lib/hal/hal-system-kvm22:38
kirklandsuperm1: on boot22:38
superm1kirkland, okay so you are missing something that spawns the udi then i believe22:39
superm1kirkland, by matching another hal key when booted from KVM.  are there any other things identifiable in lshal that can indicate that you are booted into kvm?22:40
kirklandsuperm1: http://paste.ubuntu.com/49848/22:40
superm1kirkland, oh is this for within the VM or outside the VM then?22:41
kirklandsuperm1: i'm running this on real hardware, not in a kvm22:41
superm1it looks like for outside the VM, i see...22:41
kirklandsuperm1: right22:41
kirklandsuperm1: generally, you have to be in the kvm group to actually use /dev/kvm22:41
kirklandsuperm1: i'm trying to solve that ;-)22:41
kirklandsuperm1: maybe this bit is wrong?  +    <match key="info.udi" string="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/kvm">22:43
kirklandsuperm1: i'm not entirely sure what belongs in the fdi22:43
superm1kirkland, well so if this fdi is only shipped w/ the kvm package, I believe that what you want to do is unconditionally spawn the new hal udi, and then have that match go into it22:44
superm1kirkland, grep through /usr/share/hal for some examples about how udi's are spawned22:44
superm1information/10freedesktop/10-dell-rfkill-switch-wlan.fdi is an example i'm looking at22:45
kirklandsuperm1: that's what I do in /usr/lib/hal/hal-system-kvm22:45
superm1kirkland, so what i'm thinking is that you wouldn't have any of those match keys in the first section, but ou would have the spawn udi key in the first device section22:45
superm1and the second one you would do the matching that adds in your hal-system-kvm22:45
superm1and I want to say it should spawn the binary all on its own after that22:46
kirklandsuperm1: where is information/10freedesktop/10-dell-rfkill-switch-wlan.fdi ?22:46
superm1I still might be a little off on this solution though22:47
cjwatsonpitti: not a livelock - python has a recursion limit, and because germinate 1.9 added an extra level of function calls for each package in the recursive dependency resolver, we ended up overflowing it and python raised an exception22:47
superm1at that point you wouldn't necessarily even need that info.addons i suppose, but instead you would just put in your two keys that were added in that binary22:47
cjwatsonpitti: I was out, but retroactively, slangasek's plan for landscape-client is reasonable22:48
cjwatsonKeybuk: of course, not accepting DSA keys makes them non-spec-compliant ;-)22:49
kirklandsuperm1: i'm thorough confused...  if i did that, what would actually call my binary?22:49
superm1kirkland, nothing would, i'm not sure the binary would even be needed22:50
superm1kirkland, because all the binary is doing is registering keys in the UDI right?22:50
kirklandsuperm1: right22:50
superm1kirkland, so you can just explicitly define those keys directly in the FDI22:50
superm1and you should have the same result22:50
Keybukcjwatson: would that be the "oops, where did that go?" plan :)22:50
nxvlKeybuk: that plan always work :P22:51
Keybukcjwatson: we clearly can't add any more packages to the CD!22:52
KeybukWe've exceeded germinate's limits! :p22:52
cjwatsonnot any more ;-)22:52
kirklandsuperm1: http://paste.ubuntu.com/49851/ ?22:53
cjwatsonthough I did notice several transitional packages in that dep chain that clearly shouldn't be there :)22:53
kirklandsuperm1: actually, i dropped the addons22:53
superm1kirkland, yeah that's the sort of thing I had in mind22:53
kirklandsuperm1: lemme build that22:54
kirklandsuperm1: that might have worked ;-)22:58
kirklandsuperm1: i'm rebooting to make sure22:58
mathiazniemeyer: http://paste.ubuntu.com/49853/ <- this is the hourly cronjob I'm about to upload23:04
kirklandsuperm1: success!!!23:15
superm1kirkland, awesome :)23:15
superm1kirkland, you'll have to make sure that's within policy to do that in the FDI file like  that, but I think since it's opt-in only when you install the KVM package, I dont see why it wouldn't be23:16
kirklandsuperm1: sure, i'm going to leave a debdiff in pitti's inbox23:16
kirklandsuperm1: if it's okay, he can sponsor it23:16
kirklandsuperm1: if not, he can modify it appropriately, or punt it back to me23:16
superm1kirkland, right23:17
superm1kirkland, i'm curious on the second half of that I didn't see, what controls someone's rights exactly?23:17
superm1is there a GUI tool to figure this kind of stuff?23:18
kirklandsuperm1: huh?23:18
kirklandsuperm1: no idea23:18
nxvlsuperm1: someone's rights as in permissions?23:18
superm1nxvl, yeah in this particular case where you aren't actually settings permissions on the device file23:19
kirklandsuperm1: i think that's the "policy" file23:19
superm1does hal end up owning the device file and then handling permissions itself then?23:19
kirklandsuperm1: not, it's still owned root:kvm23:19
kirklandsuperm1: but there's an extended attribute on it23:19
kirklandsuperm1: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/49860/23:20
=== cr3_ is now known as cr3
superm1kirkland, ah interesting23:21
superm1kirkland, well that's pretty neat23:22
cjwatsondoesn't that rely on extended attributes being enabled in the filesystem?23:23
kirklandcjwatson: on /dev ?23:23
cjwatsonoh, it's a tmpfs I suppose23:23
superm1 /dev should be tmpfs, I had assumed tmpfs had them enabled23:23
kirklandi assumed it was given23:23
superm1kirkland, so when you run kvm, does some sort of PolicyKit type of thing go off to ack you into the policy?23:25
superm1or is that a separate piece that will still need to be developed?23:25
kirklandsuperm1: i think that's still tbd23:25
cjwatsonright, sorry, I was thinking of / where I don't think xattrs are reliably available23:30
