lfaraonewgrant: well, we don't have the source file, so we don't know. it'll probabbly be a few kb less00:00
slangaseker, what exactly is the plan of action here?  You want to re-encode using a source format that's not available?00:03
lfaraoneslangasek: well, we're wondering if it's recorded anywhere where the file came from.00:03
slangasekthe copyright file states it came from http://librivox.org/00:04
asacScottK: unlikely that the regression window really is the latest upload. at least if its a knetworkmanager specific issue00:04
asacScottK: read: no dbus api changes in the last upload00:05
lfaraoneslangasek: ah, we got it, it's on archive.org00:05
asacScottK: do you use a "hybrid" setup, e.g. one connection managed by ifup/ifdown and the wireless with NM?00:05
brycemdz, I've sorted out why the OCD doesn't display - it's a bug in gnome-power-manager02:26
brycehmm, no mdz02:26
brycecjwatson: so mdz's bug is a combination of two bugs - one is a thinkpad t61 kernel bug, that it's not propagating numlock key changes up properly (verified this with whot upstream), the other bug is local to gnome-power-manager where it's not bothering to grab keys with modifiers (it's grabbing with modmap=0 instead of modmap=AnyModifier)02:28

NCommanderScottK, I did some initial debugging on openexr; the main issue seems to be a race issue in glibc (it appears to me that some of the pthread() functions aren't working appropriately). I'm running the test suite on glibc as we speak. If you need this package uploaded, and you don't care about it supporting threads (due to the borked glibc), I can give you a patch to prevent it from calling make check on HPPA05:57

lukehasnonameIs there a reason linux-generic is being held back on my beta install of 8.10?08:38
persialukehasnoname, Have you checked on what it depends?  Is everything available?08:39
lukehasnonameI'll check.08:39
geserlukehasnoname: try "sudo apt-get install linux-generic" and it should tell you why it can't be installed08:39
lukehasnonamegeser: I ran the install and I didn't get errors08:43

mvocjwatson: are you ok with http://paste.ubuntu.com/55921/ ?08:51
liwmvo, in update-manager, you seem to be using gettext.gettext rather than gettext.install/gettext.translation. the latter is strongly recommended by the python stdlib docs. do you have a reason to prefer gettext.gettext?08:56
mvoliw: no strong reason, that I what I used in C and I'm familiar with.08:57
liwmvo, ack, that's a good reason08:58
mvoliw: what is the advantage of using the alternative form?08:58
mvoliw: is there something to read up? pydoc gettext seems to be not that informative08:58
liwmvo, "more flexibility and greater convenience than the GNU gettext API" says file:///usr/share/doc/python2.5/html/lib/node732.html08:59
liwmvo, the flexibility probably means just that the newer API allows easily switching between languages, or supporting several concurrently09:00

mvoliw: aha, cool. thanks. I will keep that in mind :)09:01
tseliotmvo: hi :-)09:01
liwmvo, I'm not sure the "greater convenience" applies to modules, just for applications, but we'll see; since the new API is the recommended one, I'll do system-cleaner with it, and we can compare notes some day09:02
mvoliw: sounds good!09:03
liwI have found a surprising dearth of documentation on this09:03
mvoliw: gettext in python? yeah, it seems that everybody just copies what he found other code. I find it also slightly anoying that gtk.glade needs its own bindtextdomain() calls (or at least it needed when I wrote the code)09:04
liwmvo, I think I saw a note somewhere saying that it might not be needed anymore, but who knows... writing such a doc (or a patch to python's stdlib docs) would be a good upstream contribution09:06
* mvo nods09:06
cjwatsonmvo: hmm, disabling cancel altogether sort of worries me. Could you wrap that in an environment variable that update-manager sets for now, and send it upstream to see what Joey thinks of it?09:19
cjwatsonmvo: the rest is OK although would it be worth allowing GDK_FUNC_RESIZE and GDK_FUNC_MAXIMIZE too?09:20

tseliotkde or gtk10:11
pittitseliot: why is wrapping the string into unicode() the right fix here?10:12
pittitseliot: it looks like a wrong encoding in a translation to me?10:12
tseliotpitti: kde uses QStrings10:12
pittitseliot: but this isn't KDE, this is just simple "print" to stdout10:12

fabbionecjwatson: oh yes.. parted_devices sorry.. but i know you are much quicker than me there :) thanks10:14
cjwatsonpitti: if this is a Qt frontend, anything you get back from Qt as a QString tends to have to be wrappped in unicode() :(10:14

pittitkamppeter: I fixed the hpgl regression and uploaded 1.3.9 to debian and intrepid10:23
cjwatsonpitti: unfortunately python people don't appear to understand how encodings actually conventionally work in Unix and regard all this as not-a-bug10:23
pittitoo many MacOS X programmers amongst them? :-/10:24
tkamppeterpitti, great, it contains also an important fix in pstops.10:24
cjwatsonspecifically they don't understand that stream encodings are supposed to be set by the environment not (in some undefined way) by the terminal [even though in some entirely different ideal world the latter might be how it ought to work]10:24
tkamppeterpitti, why does "bzr pull"W not show it?10:24
pittitkamppeter: I just pushed like 10 seconds ago10:24
cjwatsonand that there have to be ways to override it since the environment can be wrong10:25
tkamppeterpitti, sorry, I was 1 minute too early10:25
cjwatsonactually, python does set stdout's encoding from the environment, but *only if stdout is a terminal*. This is clearly mad since putting | less after your program can cause it to stop working.10:26
pittiindeed I just tried that, but it still works10:26
tseliotpitti: is it worth catching the exception then? (not that I like it...)10:26
pitti$ PYTHONPATH=. gtk/jockey-gtk --check 2>&1 |cat10:26
pittiSie sind nicht berechtigt, diese Aktion auszuf├╝hren.10:26
cjwatsonit depends on your environment10:26
cjwatsonthe reporter might have the locale set but not in fact have the locale generated, for example10:26
pittiah, that's a good thing to ask in the bug report10:27
cjwatsonI really would suggest just clobbering it with something like the rune I suggested above10:27
cjwatsonpython is known-broken in this area and you have to set things explicitly10:27
cjwatsonif sys.stdout.encoding were writable it would be much more pleasant10:27
pitticjwatson: right, I just don't feel good about hardcoding UTF-8, since users might actually use an ISO, KOI-8, or whatever encoding in their locale10:28
cjwatsonpitti: use locale.getpreferredencoding() in place of 'UTF-8' then10:28
cjwatson(I haven't tested that but I think it should work)10:29
pittithis raises a severe deja-vu for me; I think I got that like half a year ago in apport10:29

Riddellwell other people have troubles we havn't got to the bottom of yet11:56
liwif I add translatable strings to my code, the .pot file needs updating; do I just re-create it from scratch using xgettext or what?12:13
cjwatsongettext supplies a Makefile that can do it12:14
liw/usr/share/gettext/intl/Makefile.in?12:15
cjwatsonyou don't want to copy it around by hand if you can help it ...12:16
liwor possibly /usr/share/gettext/po/Makefile.in.in, hmm12:16
liwcjwatson, yeah, I really really don't want hundreds of lines of excessively complicated Makefiles :)12:16
cjwatsonI guess you aren't using automake12:16
liwthis is for a Python program, so no12:16
cjwatsonyou could use gettextize12:16
cjwatsonand see what it does and whether you can massage the result to be acceptable12:16
cjwatsonusually you just leave its results in po/ and forget about it12:17
cjwatsonto directly answer your original question, it ultimately comes down to recreating it using xgettext and using msgmerge to update the .po files12:17
liw. o O (someone needs to document this really well)12:17
cjwatsoninfo gettext12:18
liwcjwatson, I have been reading that, and I find it to be confusing12:18
cjwatsonwhile I sympathise with a detestation of autogenerated Makefiles, in this case it is orders of magnitude less wasted time than doing it by hand, IME12:19
liwmight be because it's a complicated process, of course12:19
liwcjwatson, that's possibly true, but then I need to deal with the massive headache of keeping the autogeneration of the Makefile working12:20
cjwatsonI find that easier than keeping the .pot/.po files working without that12:20
liwgettextize won't work without autotools being used, it seems12:20
cjwatsonyou could look at how debconf does it12:21
cjwatsonit has a by-hand Makefile for this12:21
cjwatsoncopying somebody else's by-hand work is probably easier than duplicating it :)12:21
liwI return to my point that someone needs to document this well :)12:23
liwas far as I can see, there needs to be something that updates the .pot file with new strings (and removes old ones?), then based on that updates the .po files (adds missing strings, marks changed strings as fuzzy?); that doesn't sound like it should require autotools or hordes of Makefile magic12:24
cjwatsonupdate .pot files with new strings => xgettext; update .po files => msgmerge; you also need something to compile .po to .gmo files; you might want to support 'make install' and/or 'make dist'; sometimes people want to disable i18n or enable only certain languages; and some people want to support systems where GNU gettext is not already installed12:28
cjwatsonalso some maintainers only want to rebuild .pot manually rather than automatically12:29
cjwatsonor want to update it only if the .pot changed non-trivially (i.e. more than just the creation date or whatever)12:29
cjwatson(which avoids vcs noise)12:29
liware .gmo files the same as .mo files or is this some fourth type of file?12:30
cjwatsononce you do all of that you're actually not that far off the complexity of gettext's po/Makefile.in.in12:30
cjwatsoninfo gettext C-s gmo12:30
liwack, they're gnu's extended and embraced version of .mo, good :)12:32
liwcjwatson, all that complexity could surely be wrapped in tools less awful than autotools, I'm sure; anyway, I don't want or need most of the complexity, so I'll go some simpler route12:36
mvoliw: check out python-distutils-extra if you look for something that does the i18n in system cleaner12:39
liwmvo, that looks like useful for the parts that are involved in installing the .mo files; does it take care of generating the .mo files from .po files, too?12:42
mvoliw: yes12:42
liwcool12:42
mvoliw: it should do all that is required, if not, file a bug against it12:42
mvo(or let glatzor or me know about the problem)12:43
liwmvo, is it also involved in updating .po files from .pot?12:43
* liw goes read docs12:44
mvoliw: yes, it should do all that, check gnome-app-install setup.cfg and setup.py for a example12:44
mvoliw: + po/POTFILES.in and you should be done12:44
mvoliw: it also supports desktop files and desktop file i18n12:45
asacRiddell: if people have troubles ask them if they are running a hybrid setup (meaning: 1 device managed in /etc/network/interfaces and the other in NM)12:45
Riddellasac: right12:45
asacRiddell: that setup is know to have metric issues i still have to sort somehow12:45
liwmvo, "setup.py build_i18n --merge-po" seems to require a po/POTFILES.in, which does not support wildcards; is that intentional?13:15
mvoliw: po/POTFILES.in is required, not sure about the wildcards, it uses intltool internally, not sure if that supports them or not (I guess not if you have problems with it)13:17
liwmvo, ah, so it's just intltool-update that uses that, ok13:18
mvoliw: yeah, its just a (thin) wrapper around the intltool* stuff13:18

alkisgmvo, and another somewhat serious one, gparted (and the installer) can't create smaller partitions on empty disks (tried on different 3 PCs). I had to create 1 full-disk partition, shrink it, then create others and then run the installer...13:27
mvoalkisg: oh, is that reported already?13:31
alkisgmvo, I saw something similar reported, but only for the installer, not the backend lib which is used (and I think the fault is there... libparted is it?)13:32
cjwatsonalkisg: I've never heard of such a bug (I co-maintain the installer); it must be hardware-specific. Can you refer me to the bug number?13:33
alkisgIt's usually reported as ubiquity crashed, with auto-collected debug data13:33
alkisgI've sent one myself, and was considered a duplicate13:34

alkisgcjwatson, read mine, I'm not really sure if they're the same13:37
cjwatsonthis sounds like the problem where libparted sometimes forgets to change the partition type13:37
alkisgcjwatson, yes, that's what I got13:37
cjwatsonI've tried to figure that out multiple times and haven't got anywhere; I can give it another shot, I suppose13:37
cjwatsondescribing it as "can't create smaller partitions on empty disks" is a bit overly broad though :)13:38
cjwatsonit only happens if you're creating the partition at the same position as something that used to be NTFS13:38
alkisgBut I also tried (in another system) to just create an ext3 partition with 100Gb size (disk = 640Gb), and it couldn't. Not the installer, not gparted.13:38
cjwatsonalkisg: that's a different problem and I'd like to know about it13:38
cjwatson(with logs etc.)13:38
cjwatsonseriously, I create partitions less than the size of the disk all the time :)13:39
alkisgcjwatson, ouch, this morning I've setup the system, and it's on a lab I'm not responsible for...13:39
cjwatsonalthough not on 640GB disks; it could be an overflow of some kind13:39

ogradoesnt look like anyone will fix it in time, thats indeed quite bad with autohiding14:14
* ogra personally just saw it as an annoyance he could live with, just wanted to know it was intentional14:15
ogramvo, sooo, removing gpm fixes the issue, looking at the log i see xorg loads DPMS for the intel driver, i guess we have a concurring situation between xorg and gpm both wanting to handle DPMS (we had that before)14:27
ogratjaalton, ^^^14:27
* ogra will now try to put something in place that unsets DPMS for X and instal gpm again and see if that fixes it as well to prove that14:27
tjaaltonogra: xset -dpms14:29
ogratjaalton, ah, right, i was starting to play with hal-set-property stuff in gdm Init :)14:29
ograthast easier indeed14:30
ograand probably more effective as well :)14:31
mvothanks ogra, could you please add that to the bugreport?14:33
ogramvo, if i'm sure ...14:33
ograi just remembered that clash from before, i'm not sure yet that it is the cause, and compiz surely plays a role as well, as switching to metacity solves it14:34
* ogra twiddles thumbs waiting for gpm14:35
ograhmm14:38
ograno gpm reaction ...14:41
ograhah, now it kicked in14:43
ogramvo, so "xset -dpms" makes it work ...14:43
ogratjaalton, can we default to have the driver not using it ?14:44
ograthough i guess that gets us probs in gdm14:44
persiaIf the issue only happens in a compiz session, perhaps compiz could xset -dpms ?14:45
ograyeah, hat sounds sane14:45
ogra*that14:45
jcristauactually it doesn't14:45
persiajcristau, I trust you more than I when it comes to X.  Why is it not sane?14:47
jcristaumaybe i just don't understand the problem though..14:47
ograjcristau, the driver wanting to set xorg dpms values concurring to gpm wanting to do the same14:47
persiaBut only with compiz?  With metacity, this issue doesn't exist?14:48
tjaaltonDPMS in xserver has been enabled by default two years ago14:48
Treenaksogra: (is this gpm the console mouse thing?!)14:48
ograpersia, right14:48
ograTreenaks, gnome-power-manager ...14:49
Treenaksogra: ah, sorry ok :)14:49
emgentevening14:49
ograjcristau, we had that prob before though at times where dpms was handled by gnome-screensaver, that functionallity moved over to gpm within the last year14:50
jcristaui think it'd be more sane to understand the bug and fix it than to disable dpms..14:50
ograyou dont disable it14:50
ogragpm stil cares, you just move the trigger out of X14:51
persiaWell, you're disabling it in X, and expecting something else to handle it.14:51
ograright14:51
jcristauthere's an interface for that in some extension, iirc14:51
persiaOn the other hand, if X is doing it, and doing it right, perhaps it makes more sense for other things not to do it.14:51
ograpersia, that would mean to hack up hal/gpm14:52
ograeither hal/gpm is broken in combo with compiz and dpms or X is ...14:52
ograwell14:53
persiaogra, Indeed.  Something is the culprit.14:53
ogras/X/the intel driver/14:53
jcristauthe driver, really?14:54
ograi dont care on which side we fix it, atm i'm just trying to nail down the issue properly :)14:54
persia:)14:54
ograjcristau, it could as well be that gpm or hal dont use the right backend interface ...14:54
ograif you say there is an interface14:55
ograall i can say that switching off either of the dpms handlers fixes the issue14:56

ScottKSure.15:11
StevenKOkay15:11
StevenKI can do that soonish15:11
mvoogra: I suspect it might be because compiz switches on some 3d stuff that then makes the dpms more sensitive or something15:11
pittiStevenK: it might be worth going through them and compare if Debian just has a new revision; then we should sync instead15:12
persiaStevenK, Thanks.  And the rest of us will look at FTBFS fallout, and help port.15:12

StevenKIt's a little more work, but not much15:13

mptmvo, why are we even asking this question?16:51
mptIf we weren't confident that it's a better design, we shouldn't be doing it at all16:52
mvompt: that is a long story, basicly because we don't want to mess with the users configuration automatically without further questions. and also because people might have shared /home paritions where this change breaks when they boot a older version (or a different version) of linux16:53
mptmvo, hang on, I need to yell at Ted about this, brb16:53
mvompt: pitti and tedg have more background on this, I'm little more than the messenger16:53

seb128mpt: why? because upstream has applets to open the 2 dialogs they use17:01
mptI don't understand17:01
mptTed just told me that the logout button is not an applet, it's compiled into the panel17:02
ograyep17:02
mptso if we're removing it from the Intrepid version of the panel17:02
mptthen we don't need to change anyone's configuration at all, it just won't appear in Intrepid.17:02
bluefoxicyHey guys17:02
bluefoxicyScott Kaplan is willing to give a statement releasing the Wilson-Kaplan algorithm implementations as LGPL17:03
seb128mpt: we don't want to remove the upstream code because it's creating divergence and some upstream guys like the upstream way and would be complaining if we were doing that in ubuntu17:03
bluefoxicythese work much better than LZO for compressed memory17:03
ogrampt, and what would provide the logout button then ? note that fusa breaks in real multiuser setups like ltsp, most ltsp users i know deliberately remove fusa17:03
seb128mpt: we don't use it but the code is still there17:04
mptogra, the design is that Log Out, Shut Down etc are in the status menu *instead of* a Log Out button.17:04
mptSo asking what the Log Out button is a non-sequitur.17:04
mptWhat the Log Out button should do, rather.17:04
ograindeed17:05
mptseb128, so why don't those upstream guys download and install the upstream version of gnome-panel instead?17:06
mptIf they didn't say anything when Ted posted about our design originally, why are they trying to mess it up now?17:07
seb128mpt: are you suggesting we want to discourage upstream hackers to use ubuntu?17:07
mptseb128, no, I just don't understand what they're proposing.17:07
seb128mpt: there is a miscommunication there, that has nothing to do on the design, we just keep the upstream code available but don't use it17:07
mptI assume they're not proposing that Ubuntu offer two different panel items for logging out.17:08
seb128mpt: upstream doesn't use any session or user switching on their gnome-panel layout17:08
seb128mpt: they don't suggest anything for ubuntu17:08
mvoeven if we compile out the logout button we still need to think about setups without the fusa applet and have a way to auto add it there17:08
seb128mpt: the green man launcher is an upstream object though17:08
mvoe.g. I don't have fusa on my laptop and would be suprised if my logout button disappers17:08
mptmvo, sure, but that's what the upgrade script does, right?17:09
mptit ensures that the menu is there17:09
seb128mpt: the issue there is upgrade, not new installs17:09
seb128mpt: right, because we have been abusing the upstream object before to open a custom ubuntu session dialog17:09
seb128mpt: now we dropped this session dialog so the object opens the upstream dialog17:09
seb128mpt: we need to figure what to do what the object is in the configuration before upgrade17:10
seb128mpt: is that clear?17:10

ubottuLaunchpad bug 263211 in gnome-desktop "apps-wont-open-due-to-maximum-clients-reached-error" [High,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/26321117:40
KeybukYes, I've been doing some debugging too, and in my setup gnome-screensaver is the culprit as well. Specifically it calls gnome_bg_create_pixmap() (from libgnome-desktop) with root == TRUE, which ends up creating a new connection to the X server, calling XSetCloseDownMode() to change to RetainPermanent, and then disconnecting. And in that case the X server keeps the client data structures around forever.17:40

KeybukI guess in the 70s you couldn't fit 256 windows in memory :P17:43
Keybukof course, the fact gnome-screensaver is consuming them all after just a day or so is doubleplusbadw17:43
keesslangasek: I meant by "eww" in response to the leak, not the rc-request.  :)17:43
mathiazwhat's the state of autopkgtest? Is this still run?17:44
Keybukbryce: I don't suppose there's a way to tell X to free a client? :p17:45
persiamathiaz, It hadn't been run at the time of the last QA Team meeting.  heno was looking into scheduling a run.17:47
slangasekKeybuk: perhaps it's specific to your screensaver choice?17:48
Keybukslangasek: I'm using the F-Spot Photos screensaver iirc17:48
slangasekI have a theory17:49
slangasek:-)17:49
mathiazpersia: ok - the dovecot package has some tests. But the ones in qa-regression-testing are newer/better. So I was wondering if the debian/tests/ could just be dropped from the package.17:50
bryceKeybuk: not sure.  I'd use pkill myself ;-)17:50
Keybukbryce: there's no process for these clients17:50
persiamathiaz, I'd rather not drop debian/tests, just because I'm a believer in robust QA, with many different ways of testing stuff.  On the other hand, if those tests are broken...17:50
Keybukslangasek: I just set the screensaver to blank screen, and activated it a bunch of times17:50
Keybukthat seems to be still exhausting the clients17:51
mathiazpersia: well - they're not broken AFAICT.17:51
cjwatsonmathiaz: all other things being equal, it's a better model to have tests in the packages themselves than in some separate repository (that has to be kept in sync as things change, etc.)17:51
cjwatsonmathiaz: so I think we should update debian/tests/ rather than removing it17:51
mathiazjdstrand: kees: ^^?17:52
mathiazdoes the current tests in q-r-t work with autopkgtests?17:52
keesafaik, there is nothing actually _running_ the tests in debian/tests/, so it doesn't do any good there17:52
cjwatsonkees: that would just require starting up autopkgtest again17:52
keesthey're not build-time tests, they're run-time tests, that need all sort of other deps to run, etc17:53
keescjwatson: right -- that's the main question I think -- is autopkgtest operational?17:53
cjwatsonkees: heno would know; I don't see an obvious reason why it shouldn't be17:53
mathiazkees: if autopkgtest is operational should the tests/ in the package be updated to match the one in q-r-t?17:54
jdstrandand, I'd have to check for dovecot specifically, many tests in q-r-t are destructive, and not necessarily written for running outside of a chroot/vm17:54
mathiazkees: or the tests be moved from q-r-t to debian/tests/ ?17:54
mathiazjdstrand: I think that's the environmet autopktest is designed for17:55
keesmathiaz: yes, until there is a strong censensus about how autopkgtest works, I want all the q-r-t tests in one place: the bzr repo.17:55
* jdstrand hasn't used autopkgtest yet17:55
keesmathiaz: the security team uses them for testing things all the way back to dapper, so i'm against splitting stuff out into separate packages.17:55
Keybukbryce, slangasek: http://paste.ubuntu.com/56045/17:57
Keybukgnome-screensaver seems to consume 2 clients every activation17:57
Keybukon my laptop it seems to consume 117:58
keesKeybuk: yeah, confirmed, I see 1 per activiation.17:58
Keybukobvious difference there might be that my desktop has two monitors, so it simply consuming clients twice as fast17:58
cody-somervilleKeybuk, hey, same story here17:59
* cody-somerville has two monitors.17:59
Keybukcody-somerville: have you hit a problem recently of apps just failing to start or open windows?18:01
cody-somervilleKeybuk, yes. It says too many clients or something18:01
cjwatsonkees: what's wrong with keeping both?18:02
cjwatsonkees: as persia said, testing often benefits from multiple approaches18:02
mathiazkees: ok - so it may be useful to teach autopkgtest about the existance of q-r-t.18:02
Keybukbryce: so is there any way to kill things like the following?18:02
superm1Keybuk, I just hit that situation an hour or two ago too18:02
Keybuk44 - <unknown> ( PID:  ?   ):18:02
Keybukres_base      : ox280000018:02
Keybukres_mask      : ox1fffff18:02
keescjwatson: I don't mind keeping both as long as the bzr tree is the primary.18:02
superm1(i've got two monitors here) - so it did happen pretty quick18:02
Keybuksuperm1: how many monitors do you have? :)18:03
mathiazcjwatson: in the case of dovecot, I'd be tempted to just merge the tests from q-r-t in debian/tests/.18:03
KeybukI guess those with one have 200 screensaver activations before they get DoS'd18:03
Keybukwhich is slightly longer than the kernel team take to upload a new kernel right now :p18:03
Keybukthose ricers amongst us with two only have 100 screensaver activations, so get more suck and fail18:03
superm1i've been S3'ing this laptop the last few nights and opting to not do kernel reboots, so that explains things :)18:03
persiakees, Running autopkgtest takes a lot of resources.  We typically only do one or two runs per development cycle.  This one got missed due to various issues, but we'll try to get it run before release.18:04
jdstrandmathiaz: if you are going to do that, also consider test-dovecot.py18:04

jdstrand(though it would all have to be updated it seems)18:05

cjwatsonmathiaz: tasksel, by design, generally tries to keep standard installed. Can we leave it there for "Install a minimal system"?18:10
cjwatsonmathiaz: HACK OF DEATH18:10
mathiazcjwatson: ok - and it would be too late in the release cycle to implement a similar hack for intrepid?18:11
cjwatsonmathiaz: actually, I'm not sure how it was done18:11
cjwatsonmathiaz: don't wanna18:12
cjwatsonmathiaz: oh, we did it by having a separate CD that didn't include standard18:12
cjwatsonmathiaz: so that won't work when merged into the server CD. It sucked as an approach anyway18:12
persiaDoing it right would mean fiddling with debootstrap, wouldn't it?18:12
cjwatsonno, why?18:13
Keybuk*sigh*18:13
cjwatsondebootstrap doesn't install standard18:13
Keybukok, this wasn't a one-liner that introduced this18:13
persiaOh.  Hm.18:13
Keybukthese gnome-screensaver functions didn't even exist in hardy18:13
ograKeybuk, note that you might also still have xscreensaver installed18:14
ogra(which supersedes gss, unless that code changed)18:15
KeybukI do not18:15
cjwatsonmathiaz: I'll poke tasksel to export a new interface to make this work18:15
ograKeybuk, manually removed it ? it was pulled in until recently18:15
Keybukogra: no, only -data and -glx are installed18:15
mathiazcjwatson: is this something that can be implemented for intrepid?18:15
cjwatsonmathiaz: yes18:15
ograKeybuk, ah, lucky you ... u-m just removed it for me right now18:16
ograi had it since upgrading18:16
mathiazcjwatson: great. I'll work on adding the -virtual kernel packages to the server-ship seed.18:16
Keybuku-m may have removed it for me when I upgraded to Intrepid last week?18:16

cjwatsonmathiaz: "work on"? is it hard? :)18:16
mathiazcjwatson: oh no. It just needs to be done :D18:17
cjwatsonmathiaz: remove the jeos seed while you're at it18:17
cjwatsonmathiaz: is this i386 only, or amd64 too?18:17
cjwatsonlinux-virtual | 2.6.27.6.7 | intrepid/universe | amd64, i38618:17
cjwatsonapparently both. the jeos seed only had it for i38618:17
mathiazcjwatson: right.18:18

seb128Keybuk: ok, upstream bug moved to gnome-screensaver now and the comment suggest your change is correct18:48
Keybukyeah, that's what I thought18:48
Keybukit looked like g-ss just really wanted a pixmap with the background image, and he passed root=TRUE "because that sounded right"18:48

NCommanderKeybuk, talking about monotone/git?19:59
NCommanderScottK, I looked at openexr20:00
NCommanderScottK, its not pretty (and not a problem with openexr itself)20:00
ScottKNCommander: I saw debian disabled the test suite on some archs.20:01
NCommanderScottK, the issue is threading20:01
NCommanderSomething in glibc broke on 2.8 that causes threads in some situations it seems to not properly lock and respect mutexs20:01
* NCommander had a similar issue with glib and trying to compile it20:01
NCommanderIt *might* just be my HPPA box, but looking very closely at the test results, it works fine without threads, or threads that aren't working together20:02
NCommanderScottK, do you just want to kill the test suite since the issue isn't with openexr specifically? (the test failures go away on glibc 2.7)20:03
ScottKNCommander: It seems a popular solution, but I'm not qualified to judge.20:04
* ScottK summons the spirit of lamont for an opinion.20:04
NCommanderScottK, have you prepared the necessary sacrifices?20:05
ScottKNCommander: I gave a user Postfix advice on #ubuntu-server this morning.20:05
* NCommander reads from the book of HPPA20:06
NCommanderThou should give advice on sendmail, the most evilest of SMTP daemons. Only then shall the first sacrifice be met20:06
ScottKWell I think friends don't let their friends use Sendmail.20:07
persiaErm.  sendmail isn't evil, it just wants to be placated before it will play nice.20:07
NCommanderpersia, go write a config file without using M4 macros, then tell me that again with a straight face20:07
persiaActually, I was opposed to the whole transition to m4 for sendmail config, and stopped being a mail server admin about at that point, as much as possible.20:10
stgraberslangasek: I'll need a new freeze exception for LTSP, fixing regression from pre-FF that we have now fixed upstream (and were missing in the previous upload)20:10
stgraberslangasek: I'm test building, I'll then file a bug for it20:10
slangasekstgraber: is this just fixing the one bug?20:11
slangasekif so, please just upload20:11
NCommanderpersia, you must LIKE pulling teeth. Sendmail's config format makes my brain hurt (its like COBOL. THere is only one sendmail config and its edited and modified millions of times)20:12
stgraberslangasek: 3 regressions fix, one bug fix and two small upstream changes (and a mythbuntu packaging fix): http://paste.ubuntu.com/56084/20:13
slangasekstgraber: what do you mean by "pre-FF regression", exactly? "regression that happened before FF", "regression in the current version relative to the version present at FF"...?20:14
stgraberslangasek: something that was fixed before FF but we broke with the last upload20:14

ScottKNCommander: It's a broken build-dep of kde4libs so I need it to build before I can start to get KDE4 building again on hppa.20:42
james_wkees: hey, do you have hardware to test these patches?20:44
lamontScottK: sup?20:45
ScottKlamont: openexr is FTBFS on hppa.  NCommander says it's broken threading stuff.20:46
ScottKlamont: So it looks like Debian gave up on the openexr test suite on several archs and so the question is would that be reasonable for hppa.20:46
* ScottK looks at NCommander for details on his threading findings.20:47
lamontit's kde... :-)20:47
NCommanderlamont, the test suite works fine until it tries to use multiple threads to write out files20:47
NCommanderlamont, probably some mutex fun. I suspect its a glibc problem since it doesn't happen with glibc 2.7, nor does this same behavior manifest on any other architecture where the test suite is run20:47
ScottKlamont: Yeah, I'm trying to do my bit to help out ports and get KDE built on hppa.20:47
NCommanderlamont, I did manage to get a HPPA box from HP with Ubuntu, so I'm helping with porting issues as well ;-)20:48

directhexi was just working on mono bugs today. 6 debian bugs should be closed within hours, and then i'll do a merge20:54
lamontNCommander: there was a push to move all of ubuntu to NPTL with edgy... that'd be why there's no edgy/hppa or feisty/hppa20:54
NCommanderlamont, even the debian dudes weren't that crazy, NPTL is only just available with lenny, and I didn't think they were making the transition until squeeze20:55
NCommanderI knew there were threading issues with NPTL/hppa, but I didn't realize they were THAT ba20:55
lamontthey knew they could make the transition partially because ubuntu had already20:56

superm1thur23:32
superm1so probably if you talk to him sooner, that's better23:32
wgrantOK, I'll poke him when I see him.23:32
wgrantAssuming he is the right person..23:32
superm1well for reproducing on dell hardware he should be23:33

wgrantAh, good.23:33
wgrantHeh.23:33
ScottKsuperm1: Any luck on solid-bluetooth yet?23:35
superm1ScottK, the API changes are rather large.  I'm not sure i'll be able to make enough intelligent changes in a timely fashion.  it would really be a task better for someone more familiar with solid23:36
superm1ScottK, I'll keep futzing, but I do have other tasks i'm working on concurrently23:36
ScottKsuperm1: I get the impression that upstream isn't excited about dealing with it at the moment.  Unfortunately we don't have anyone on the KDE side that understands the API changes.23:37
ScottKsuperm1: Perhaps if we could find someone who understands solid to pair your with, between the two of you, you could get to something more than what we have now?23:37
superm1ScottK, well I'm catching up on all the API changes too, but that would probably be useful.23:38
superm1ScottK, what i'm wondering is what the F10 folks are planning on doing about this23:38
superm1ScottK, given they're still broke...23:38
ScottKI'm not sure they're aware.23:38
ScottKThe one Fedora KDE person that hangs out with us didn't know of problems.23:39
ScottKsuperm1: Would you consider idling in #kubuntu-devel and let's see who turns up?23:41
