aramorning all :-)07:33
ara I remember you that today is a Ubuntu Testing Day07:42
ara https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/UbuntuTestingDay/2008100607:42
araWe will be focusing on upgrade testing07:42
ara If you are willing to upgrade from Hardy to Intrepid (beta) this is the perfect timing to do it while helping to make Ubuntu better07:42
Tallkenara: I'm doing my job now: filling bug reports :D07:47
araTallken: :D07:47
araTallken: cool, thanks :-)07:47
Tallkenok, I can't find a easy match to Google for an error07:47
TallkenI only have printk's and a irq 23 error07:48
araTallken: when reported, could you post here the bug number, so others can know about it?07:48
TallkenI don't have the time to reproduce the error to be 100% right, however it is at least the second time it happens with a fairly recognizable procedure, will mention this fact at the bug report07:49
Tallken(be 100% right in the procedure)07:49
Tallkenmy connection is going wacko07:57
Tallken_ara: I'm unable to reproduce it :'( but it happened at least twice with similar procedure08:16
ubot5`Launchpad bug 278924 in linux "[unable to reproduce for now] huawei e220 (option module?) triggers weird usb behaviour and module crash" [Undecided,New]08:16
Tallken_lol, that's mine all right08:18
Tallken_ok, is it normal a revision for a PCI line being "(rev ff)" ?08:20
davmor2Good Morning Everybody08:22
Tallken_ok seems so08:22
Tallken_hello davmor208:22
Tallken_or if it isn't it normal, it has been since 7.0408:23
Tallken_that issue with 0xFF all over Intel's Gigabit Ethernet adapter got me panicking anytime I see an 0xFF...08:23
aramorning davmor208:23
=== Tallken_ is now known as Tallken
Tallkenmeant 8.04, not 7.0408:25
davmor2Tallken: did you report it as a bug in 8.04?08:43
Tallkendavmor2: hum? no? I'm just complaining my lspci reports a revision as being 0xFF, I suppose it's not a bug, it's just a device of mine who has a funny revision, I guess...08:50
Tallken07:09.4 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller (rev ff)08:50
davmor2Tallken: but it should be displayed correctly so it is a bug :)  Write a bug put in what it does get called and what it should be called etc08:51
Tallkendavmor2: should I consider this a bug as well? :08:53

davmor2Yeap probably part of the same issue if the device isn't recognised correctly then these are the kinda errors that can arise.08:54
Tallkendavmor2: ok :) will fill bug report when I 've time08:56
DJonesHi, just wondered whether anybody had reported problems with the alternate intrepid beta cd? I had various difficulties over the weekend doing an install (All solved in the end), the main issue I had with the alternate was that on a Toshiba Equium L20 laptop with ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics, I couldn't get the display working during install, it brought up the install screen & let me select install, and then a plain black screen, I tried us09:01
araDJones: is that reproducible?09:09
araDJones: how did you solve it in the end?09:09
araDJones: you can check here for the bugs that have been filed for the alternate cd: http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/test/197309:10
DJonesara: It kept happing every time I booted with the alternate cd, the only solution i found was using an external monitor for the display during install which worked with no problems, i'd tried changing the boot paramaters to use vesa and vga=771 etc with no sucess09:11
DJonesara: Thanks I'll have a look at the bugs filed09:11
araDJones: do you have an account in the ISO tracker?09:11
araDJones: if not, create one, so you can add your findings to the ISO testing09:12
DJonesara: No, I don't, this is the first time I've found somthing reportable, I will do, thanks for the suggestion09:12
davmor2DJones: is it something similar to this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-ati/+bug/27429009:12
ubot5`Launchpad bug 274290 in xserver-xorg-video-ati "Intrepid daily, X Server hangs on ATI Radeon 9200 SE RV280" [High,Confirmed]09:12
davmor2Guys If you don't already know about it I recommend firefox-launchpad-integration it adds launchpad type stuff to the search bar in FF09:14
DJonesdavmor2: I don't think so, the laptop is always a PITA to install on so I end up using the alternate, I can get the desktop cd to get to the install setup by using vesa as a boot parameter, but then hangs (maybe I'm not giving it enough time because the cd & hdd lights still flicker as though data is being read - But after 45 minutes I had to give up) Its been that way from Edgy onwards with the desktop cd09:16

schwukWondered if it was just me...09:34

jegHegyafter upgrading from 8.04 to 8.10, i have a bunch of packages in update-manager that can't be checked for install. where do i look for a log that gives me more info?09:58
arajegHegy: /var/log/dist-upgrade10:05
jegHegyaha, they all have a broken dep on libmp3lame010:08
arajegHegy: are the packages with the broken dependencies part of a non ubuntu archive? (medibuntu or similar)10:12
jegHegyno, it's in multiverse10:13
jegHegyoh, libmp3lame0 is, i mean10:13
jegHegythe broken ones might be in universe10:13
jegHegyi turned off all third party repos before upgrading10:14
jegHegy(sidenote: rhythmbox while watching youtube, YEAH :D)10:15
schwukjegHegy: have you tried doing `sudo apt-get install libmp3lame0` from a terminal?10:19
schwukIf it's can't install, it should at least tell you why.10:19
jegHegyi did so, now it's upgrading the broken dep'd packages :O10:22
jegHegylooks like a conflict with some third party packages as it removed some in the process10:22
jegHegyeverything seems to be in order :)10:24
arajegHegy: have you tried running sudo apt-get install -f ?10:24
jegHegythe packages seem to be fine now10:25
jegHegythis would've been quite confusing though if i didn't know where to look for help10:26
jegHegysomehow there needs to be a way to help users through things like this, preferably with a UI10:27
davmor2jegHegy: you'll probably find that it will work flawlessly tomorrow and that someone is already updating the package I find it quite often upgrading :)10:27
jegHegyi know this is not something that's going to be worked on after a beta release, just letting it out :)10:27
jegHegydavmor2: cheers :)10:27
jegHegyso what i encountered was a problem with packages themselves?10:28
davmor2jegHegy: nine time out of 10 one app will request libmp3lame0-ubuntu10 and libmp3lame0-ubuntu9 is in the repo as upgrading libmp3lame0 is the next on the devs agenda he just ran out of time the day before :)10:31
jegHegyah :)10:32
jegHegywell other than this fiasco and a crashing intel xorg driver, the upgrade went real smooth :)10:32
jegHegyi'm gonna grab some breakfast and then try to get a backtrace10:34
jegHegylooks like #277709 from the symptoms10:34

jegHegyok, i've ran into a bit of a problem while trying to get a backtrace of X11:19

jegHegyso i can't ssh in to run gdb :/11:19
jegHegytried booting into recovery mode and running /etc/init.d/networking as root, but ifconfig still only shows the loopback device11:21
jegHegyifup doesn't help11:21
davmor2jegHegy: does nothing show up in /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?11:28
jegHegyi looked at it last night, nothing too helpful in it apart from telling me it's gonna die11:30
davmor2jegHegy: might be enough for the bryce's of the world :)11:35
jegHegymaybe :) i guess i'll just post the log and see if he needs a trace from me too11:36

brobostigonwhats the status of the powerpc version, i have 7.10 still on my mac, and am looking for something newer, will the 8.10 version for powerpc be usable and stable, this is my laptop i use for work so it has to be stable,?12:18
arabrobostigon: 8.10 is beta now. It is not meant to be installed in production servers, or important desktop/laptops. 8.04 is the stable release now12:30
araabePdIta: cool, what are you testing?12:30
brobostigonara: ok, thank you, how is 8.04 on powerpc, do you happen to know, by chance,?12:31
abePdIta.. =) just following instructions on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Cases/UbuntuDesktop12:33
araabePdIta: cool :-)12:34
arabrobostigon: you can download it from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/hardy/release/12:34
arabrobostigon: it should be stable enough, but sorry, i cannot tell, as I am running under intel12:34
brobostigonara: ok, thank  you, i will give the live one a try first.12:36

henoyay, I've got it launching update-manager!14:04
henobut it fails to check and install updates14:04
henoara: what's the recommended way to file bugs against the test suite - attach the report html page?14:05
arawell, there is a way to debug a bit more14:05
ara(i need to write a guide about that)14:06
araheno: ^ report first with the html14:06
araand then you can improve the information running again the test, but having set the local variable LDTP_DEBUG=214:07
arathat should print a lot more information to the terminal14:07
henoright. perhaps we should just enable that by default for now?14:07
araheno: well, we could enable that variable as part of the installation process, but I don't know if that's a good idea14:14
henoara: right, I see now it's quite verbose too. docs will be fine14:16
henoara: bug 27906814:24
araheno: which file have you changed to put your password?14:27
henoara: update_system.py14:28
araheno: no, it is not the way to run it. you have the instructions here14:29
araheno: the file to be modified is update_manager_data.xml, and you have to run it using run_test.sh14:29
henook, I'll try that. I used run_test.sh update_system.xml14:30
araheno: cool, that's the way, but you have to modified update_manager_data.xml14:32
araheno: I have updated the bug report as well14:32
henoara: that worked nicely :)14:44
araheno: good news :-)14:45
henonow, can we make a system_upgrade version?14:45
araI am afraid we can't, but you could file that in ubuntu desktop testing project as a wishlist :-)14:46
henoOK, will do. what are the blockers?14:46

henofor one thing it would have to be launched from a terminal as 'update-manager -d', not from the menu14:48
araheno: sure, but we could add that as an option. in ldtp you can run applications without the menu as well14:49
henoara: ok. it would be nice to automate upgrade testing as we approach release14:50
araheno: ok, I will work on it as soon as I clean some other tasks14:51

coucoufHi there, may I tell my Intrepid upgrade experience here ? I saw the post on the planet and wanted to give a hand.20:00
ZergyYou can if you want, this is the right channel.20:05
coucoufWell it could be summed up like this : today there is no suitable X driver for an HD3850 graphic card.20:07
ZergyI don't know, I'm using a nVidia graphic card. :/ Anyway, the ATI graphic card always have some driver's problems on Linux20:09
ZergyYou can use the "ati" drivers insted of the officiel fglrx if it don't work ("ati" is a 2D only driver)20:10
coucouffglrx doesn't work (bug #247376), radeon/ati doesn't work (bug #264462) and radeonhd flickers (bug #278471)... Bad luck. :-(20:13
Zergyvesa ? :/20:15
coucoufyes :D20:16
coucoufAt least the problems are known and the bugs are filed in Launchpad, but I really hope either of them is solved until Intrepid is released.20:18
ZergyYep, beaucoup vesa is not the greatest drivers for every day use. ^^20:19
