ScottKStevenK: Based on your changelog entry, I'll ack that.00:17
StevenKScottK: Cool. I saw the bug fix, compared the versions, and thought it was easy enough and serious enough to fix00:19
StevenKDrat, I generated the .changes file wrong00:19
ScottKStevenK: Reject it quick then because I already asked for it to be accepted (or don't worry about it)00:20
YokoZarWho can I poke for another motu-release ack?00:20
YokoZarIt's a very simple change that fixes two big bugs in Wine :)00:20
StevenKScottK: It isn't a real problem00:20
ScottKYes.00:21
ScottKYokoZar: What is it?00:21
YokoZarScottK: the wine bug you acked earlier ;)00:21
ScottKOh.  That wasn't in the upload you did already?00:22
ScottKUrgh.00:22
YokoZarYeah it was00:22
YokoZarSorry00:22
YokoZarThe upload just needs to be built00:22
YokoZarErr approved00:22
ScottKIt needs accepted and I've asked.  Maybe StevenK will do it ...00:22
YokoZarhttps://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/22398900:23
ubottuUbuntu bug 223989 in wine "wine: incorrect "Browse C:\ Drive" launcher" [Medium,Fix committed]00:23
StevenKWill I? :-)00:23
persiaStevenK, Perhaps.  It's a mystery.  Do you have a coin?  Are both sides heads?00:24
YokoZarIf anyone has any idea WHY this upload was necessary it would be helpful, by the way. If I put a Gnome launcher in the Applications menu that says "xdg-open $home/foo" it is now being turned into "xdg-open /home/user/$HOME/foo" and then failing00:27
YokoZarI'm not sure if that's a bug or a deliberate change00:27
YokoZarRunning xdg-open $HOME/foo from a terminal still works as expected00:27
RAOFYokoZar: Without experimenting, I wouldn't expect environment-variable substitutions to be carried out in launchers; thus "xdg-open $home/foo" would be expanded as "$(CWD)/$home/foo", since it's relative.00:38
=== macd__ is now known as macd
YokoZarRAOF: ahh, ok.  It does do ~ though.00:44
RAOFReally?  That's also somewhat of a shell-ism.  It surprises me less than env substitution, though.00:44
RAOFIt's kinda annoying :)00:45
ScottKStevenK: Pretty please on wine?00:52
ScottKStevenK: Never mind.00:58
ScottKYokoZar: It's accepted.00:58
ScottKpersia: You're correct.  Universe goes ahead of Language Packs.01:02
persiaScottK, Even today?  I thought it might get tuned the other way in the rush for images.01:02
ScottKpersia: Yes.  Just tested by the strongswan build just accepted already building on i38601:03
persiaThat seems a risky plan, but maybe it's less risky to throttle uploads than to fiddle with priorities at this point.  it's what, about 8 hours to hard freeze?01:05
ScottK5 ish by my math, but it's not a hard stop necessarily.01:05
StevenKIt probably is for stuff on images01:06
StevenKHm. Can I upload 4 packages in 5 hours?01:06
persiaIs there anything on images pending?01:06
StevenK(Then I hit tenth spot on UTU)01:06
persiaStevenK, Grab some RC bugs : they aren't on images generally.01:07
=== ssweeny is now known as chairy
* StevenK wonders if UTU credits syncs correctly01:14
=== chairy is now known as ssweeny
ScottKStevenK: I think it does, although not all of mine that someone tagged to ~scottk instead of ~kitterman.01:15
StevenKHeh01:15
StevenKIt looks like we can fix 2 rcs with two syncs01:15
ScottKThe aren't long builds are they?01:16
persiaStevenK, UTU credits syncs properly iff the archive admin gets the Changed-By: line correct in .changes.01:17
StevenKScottK: I've not downloaded them yet to check.01:17
StevenKRight. There's four.01:18
ScottKOK.01:19
StevenKScottK: I'll churn over them nowish01:20
ScottKOK.01:20
ScottKpersia: Did you look at the virtualbox question I asked earlier?01:20
ScottKDo we care?01:20
persiaScottK, To me, virtualbox is an annoyance, and I don't know any good way to fix it.  From what I hear, it doesn't DKMS well, and everything else leaves it semi-broken.01:22
StevenKOh geez.01:22
StevenKThe orig tarball for gcl is 8MB, and the diff.gz is 14MB01:22
ScottKI'd leave that for last.01:22
ScottKUnless you really want to mess with it, ask NCommander.  He loves gcl.01:23
StevenKYeah, it takes ~ 30 minutes to build01:23
NCommanderStevenK, try decompressing that diff.gz01:23
StevenKNCommander: Dun wanna01:23
NCommanderStevenK, it bloated up to 70MB, and the complete source to binutils, and parts of GCC01:23
NCommanderand no patch system01:23
NCommanderIts ALL inlined01:23
* NCommander hands StevenK acid for his eyes01:24
StevenKOh, the burning feels like cleaning01:24
persiaOh.  Native / non-native.  If wgrant isn't right, the solution is to fake-bump the upstream version (2.0.4-dfsg1-0ubuntu1).  Needs testing against a PPA.01:24
NCommanderStevenK, there is a reason I won't touch gcl01:24
* StevenK kicks off test builds for three of them01:25
ScottKpersia: I'm fairly certain I don't care at the moment.  Should I?01:25
persiaScottK, No good reason to care, that I see.01:25
ScottKTHanks.01:26
StevenKOne built01:26
persiablueyed should be dinged, but that's about it.  Not worth SRU to fix, and it'll get SRU'd at the next kernel bump anyway, and can be fixed then.01:26

ScottKNope.01:55
ScottKBesides, I'm reviewing one I'm going to need someone to accept in ~20 or 30 minutes.01:56
ScottKYokoZar: Any idea why Soyuz things wine is supposed to be built on hppa?01:59
ScottKThat isn't going to work, is it?01:59
stgraberAFAIK Windows doesn't exist on hppa so I have some doubts you can find an hppa .exe :)02:00
stgraber(and then wine has just no reason to exist)02:00
* StevenK checks P-a-s02:01
* ScottK was going to point young YokoZar in that direction (IIRC I've mentioned it before).02:01
YokoZarYeah I've seen it before02:01
StevenKThat's neatly odd. P-a-s looks right02:01
ScottKMaybe YokoZar wasn't nice enough to lamont.02:02
YokoZarMaybe I should just change the control file?02:02
ScottKIf it's in p-a-s, that won't affect things.  p-a-s takes precedence.02:02
YokoZarWine will (eventually) be built on other arches though, for running winelib apps02:02
ScottKIt's easy enough to get p-a-s changed when the time comes.02:03
YokoZarYeah but if it "looks right" then there's something else weird02:03
StevenKScottK: Bah, my pattern broke; bug 28971402:07

ScottKToo slow.02:07
StevenKI was waiting for it to build and install!02:07
ScottKStevenK: Ack'ed.02:09
* StevenK processes all four of them02:10
ScottKWahoo.  All the non-dead buildd's running.02:14
* stgraber wonders why "Arch: all" are always built on i386, they could be built on any of the other archs as well ... (and that'd avoid that 355 builds pending thing)02:18
ScottKstgraber: Generally it's not a major issue.  We have an extra i386 buildd to compensate, but normally we don't get a full language pack dump right before release either.02:19
ScottKIn Debian with binary uploads, such packages are never built on the buildd's and are built on whatever arch the maintainer uses.02:20
persiastgraber, It's selected as being most likely to match the majority of users.  There are a few packages that broke because of the selection, but an unfortunately large number of arch:all packages make assumptions about the architecture of the build host, so it's just safer to have it be i386.02:22
StevenKWoot. I haz tenth spot02:23
persiageser, nhandler Quick : StevenK is winning.  Grab some RCbugs fast before the archive closes!02:27
persiaHmm.  Actually, given the timing, I suspect there's little chance of that.  Advantages of being in signficantly positive timezones.02:28
nhandlerpersia: That is ok. I'm not going to get 40 packages uploaded. I'll beat him in Jaunty02:28
persianhandler, You're in -7 right?02:29
StevenKHaha02:29
nhandlerpersia: -5 right now02:29
StevenKnhandler: Did you see what I managed in Gutsy?02:29
nhandlerNo StevenK. Let me check02:29
nhandler413, very nice StevenK02:30
* persia vaguely wonders why it only goes back to Dapper02:30
nhandlerpersia: Did they have -changes mailing lists pre-dapper?02:30
* wgrant notes that whoever keeps putting 'Done' comments should probably demote the bugs as well.02:30
persiaYes.  Perhaps the archives are going away.  The Feisty uploads list is empty now.02:30
nhandlerOn a side note, how long does it usually take for the new repositories to open after a release?02:32
* wgrant only has complete archives from Edgy onwards.02:32
wgrantThey generally open during/after UDS, but UDS is really late this time.02:32
nhandlerI really hope they open before UDS. I don't know if I could stand waiting that long02:33
wgrantI suspect they will.02:33
wgrantGiven that Intrepid isn't an LTS, and UDS is late.02:33
StevenKnhandler: A week to ten days after it is added to Launchpad02:33
nhandlerThanks StevenK. I'll be waiting. And congrats on becoming #10 on UTU02:34
ScottKStevenK: Would you please accept kvirc when it appears.02:34
StevenKScottK: Certainly02:35
ScottKStevenK: Thanks.02:35
NCommanderScottK, can I get an ACK from you?02:35
persiaI never remember them opening *after* UDS.  Once during, but usually the week before or so (although I also hope this will be ~ mid-november)02:35

ubottuUbuntu bug 289683 in linux-rt "Please rebase linux-rt on 2.6.27-7.14 for intrepid" [Undecided,New]02:35
* TheMuso looks.02:36
* persia downloads the debdiff in hopes of a positive answer02:36
ScottKpersia: Cory already ack'ed it and I think we can (barely) fit it in build wise, so I'd so go ahead.02:38
ScottKI think after that and kvirc though we need to wait a while and see how fast i386 drains.02:38
* wgrant will be glad when the buildds are pooled.02:39
wgrantDamn, that's a fair way behind.02:39
persiaNCommander, And I don't need to bump lrm-rt, right?02:39
ScottKYeah, well dump 400+ language packs in ~8 hours before final freeze and that's what you get.02:39
NCommanderpersia, I think you only need to bump lrm-rt if you break the ABI02:40
* NCommander checks the manual02:40
wgrantThat's correct.02:40
wgrantlrm only depends on the ABI.02:40
TheMusoArch all on i386 makes sense, but IMO langpacks should be done globally to speed them up. :)02:40
wgrantlangpacks are also normally done in PPAs.02:40
wgrantBut that won't matter soon, as the buildds will be same, I hear.02:40
persiaPPA will just be lower priority?02:41
wgrantI think so.02:41
wgrantThere's a bug open to work out the priorities.02:41
persiaDoes this also mean more arches for PPAs?02:41
wgrantNo, since not all arches can be virtualised.02:41
ScottKpersia: PPA is a Launchpad project.  Ubuntu is not.  Take a guess how it works out.02:41
stgraberso we'll have parts of Ubuntu building in Xen ?02:41
wgrantThe plan seems to be to unify lpia/i386/amd64 buildds into one multi-arch primary/PPA pool.02:42
persiaScottK, I'm not worried about that.  Ubuntu has a fair bit of weight when it comes to certain classes of uploads.02:42
ScottKOdd thing about my UTU rankings.  Feisty was the first one I was involved in development in - 34, gutsy - 15, hardy - 15, intrepid (so far) - 15.02:42
TheMusowgrant: That makes a lot of sense.02:43

wgranthttp://thc.emanuele-gentili.com/utu/utu_intrepid.php02:43
ScottKIt's just odd coming out the exact same numerical rank for 3 consecutive releases.02:43
ScottKParticularly since I quit for part of one of those.02:43
NCommanderwooo, 3802:44
NCommanderI'm four packages behind persia02:44
persiaScottK, You weren't very good at quitting.  You uploaded stuff even when you were most inactive.02:44
ScottKYeah.02:44
persiaNCommander, It's *really* not hard to get ahead of me.02:44
persiaI'm one of the lowest-upload-count people of those who watch RCbugs or mdt.02:44
persia(or NBS for that matter).02:44
NCommander57 uploads isn't anything to stick your nose up at02:45
ScottKstgraber: kvirc should have appeared for you now.02:45
wgrantRCbugs is looking fairly good this release. Thanks to those that had time to look at it!02:45
NCommanderSomeone needs to dethrone Riddell for jaunty02:45
* persia gives three cheers to sebner for chasing RCbugs ever since DIF02:45
ScottKajmitch's improvements to it make it a lot easier to focus on what needs focusing on.02:45
TheMusoBlame kde-i18n packages. :p02:45
ScottKTheMuso: No.  Blame Launchpad.02:46
persiaWell, and nobody else sponsoring Kubuntu stuff.02:46
ScottKOh, wrong topic.02:46
ScottKI thought we were on buildd backlog again.02:46
stgraberScottK: hmm, kvirc ?? You probably got the wrong s* :)02:46
wgrantScottK: Those were actually my improvements.02:46
ScottKAh.02:46
TheMusoScottK: I was basically saying Jonathan is as high as he is because of the tens of i18n uploads.02:47
ScottKwgrant: Thank you for those.02:47
ScottKTheMuso: Yep.  I finally got that.02:47
ScottKstgraber: ?  Yes, kvirc.02:47
wgrantScottK: Why are we blaming Launchpad for buildd lag?02:47
wgrantI wonder if hppa will catch up if somebody doesn't bounce primeor.02:48
persiaBecause of the difficulty extracting langpacks.02:48
wgrantAh, true.02:48
ScottKwgrant: Because the translation process is a byzantine mess, templates didn't get approved until late, and then Rosetta was finicky and didn't like anything about KDE4 for some important languages.02:48
stgraberScottK: hmm, I don't use kvirc (and I don't use KDE). Are your sure you're talking to the right person ?02:48
wgrantAnd then LP hung at least 5 times during exports.02:48
wgrantWhich stopped other builds.02:48
ScottKwgrant: I think Rosetta design is more broken than soyuz.02:49
wgrantRosetta has to deal with a lot of stuff.02:49
ScottKstgraber: Ah.  Sorry.  Bad tab completion.  That was meant for StevenK.02:49
wgrantAn awwwful lot of stuff.02:49
wgrantBut yes, it needs fixing.02:49
StevenKScottK: Sorry. kvirc accepted02:49
ScottKStevenK: Thanks.02:49
* StevenK got distracted02:50
ScottKNo problem.02:50
ScottKStevenK: persia should have a new kernel for you to accept here in a minute.02:50
wgrantAre we hardfreezing once the langpacks are through?02:50
ScottKwgrant: Someone suggested 0600 UTC to slangasek and he suggested that was about the right time.02:51
wgrantHmmm. I wonder if they'll finish by then.02:51
persiaThere's just not much more time on the buildds, unless someone has something that doesn't need i386.02:52
ScottKpersia: The kernel goes on a derivative CD and the lang packs go on almost no CDs, so I'd say go ahead, but I don't plan on approving anything else.02:53
ScottKStevenK: There it is now.02:53
wgranthppa is going to be a few hours too late.02:53
ScottKlinux-rt02:53
ScottKwgrant: We could make it weeks late if we retried more stuff.02:54
persiaScottK, That kernel doesn't go on any CDs.02:54
StevenKScottK: Done02:54
wgrantEr, langpacks in NEW?02:54
persiaScottK, It has some bugs (like no SMP support), so it's not default.02:54
persiawgrant, more languages must have passed the 40% barrier.02:54
StevenK-syr, -pap, -arn, and -bra02:54
wgrantI guess. They're all three-letter ones, too.02:54
StevenKNo -tlh02:55
slangasekgiven where the langpacks are, we may need to stop accepting other packages sooner so that the backlog clears (or else someone should handhold the queues to make sure all the langpacks are done first that need to be)02:55
slangasekStevenK: those are supposed to not be generated; I'll nuke them from NEW02:55
StevenKslangasek: I think we're pretty much done.02:55
StevenKslangasek: Ah, kay02:55
ScottKslangasek: I'd already reached that conclusion.  I'm not accepting anything else until the backlog drains some.02:55
StevenKslangasek: I can process the other things in binary NEW if you wish02:56
Hobbseeslangasek: re: handholding, that's going to be a pain in theneck02:56
slangasekStevenK: sure, feel free02:56
slangasekHobbsee: the alternative to handholding is to just not accept anything else that's not critical until the queue drains02:56
slangasekand evaluate whether we can afford to squeeze anything in after that02:57
NCommanderA HPPA buildd bit the dust :-/02:57
Hobbseeslangasek: that might be more sane.  afaik, there is now *no* way to rescore builds, short of going to LP itself.02:57
StevenKAt least palmer grabbed linux-rt02:57
persiaJust for the avoidance of doubt : linux-rt is *less* important than the langpacks, as it's not part of the install for any users.02:57
StevenK(It's the fastest i386 buildd)02:57
wgrantStevenK: Lucky02:57
persiaWell, if it's already building.02:57
ScottKIt is.02:58
NCommandervirtual buildds should at least be able to take load off the non-virtual ones :-/02:58
wgrantIsn't it only the one flavour?02:58
slangasekStevenK: being grabbed by the fastest buildd doesn't help when the backlog is > 3 buildds wide and hours deep :)02:58
wgrantOr somebody could assign the 20 recently moved PPA buildds to primary i386 for the next couple of hours.02:58
wgrantBut I suppose it's not quite that easy.02:58
* ScottK enjoys the empty "Bugs related to MOTU Release Team" page.02:58
StevenKslangasek: Hehe :-)02:59
StevenKEr, yeah. Where did the 2 billion PPA buildds go?02:59
wgrantI believe they got moved.02:59
persiaScottK, Nice job to get that clean.03:00
wgrantBut you can imagine that infinity is busy setting them up non-virtually if you want. :P03:00
StevenKGiven the time in Calgary, I bet he isn't. :-P03:01
NCommanderhow many hours until final freeze?03:02
StevenKTen minutes shorter now03:02
persiaNCommander, 3, but the buildds have to drain.03:02
NCommanderso if the buildds are still building, we don't get screwed?03:02
ScottKNot really in this case.03:02
StevenKNCommander: That isn't an invite to get them to keep building03:03
ScottKhppa is screwed regardless.03:03
persiaIf the buildds are still building, the release manager will likely bark at MOTU Release.  If they drain with a publisher cycle to spare, we can push a few more RCbugs.03:03
NCommanderScottK, they are a builder down, what can we do03:03
StevenKhppa has been screwed all cycle03:03
ScottKOn i386 we'd be short some language packs.03:03
ScottKNCommander: Even if everying pending built it would still be screwed.03:03
wgranthppa has been screwed since it was revived in Feisty.03:03
persiaBeing short language packs is bad, because they go on the DVD images.03:03
wgrantIt had thousands of pending builds when we released Feisty, IIRC.03:03
ScottKIt's substantially worse now than on Hardy.03:04
=== not_rly is now known as orly_owl
persiawgrant, hppa only had a couple hundred outstanding builds for gutsy.  Best release since Breezy, I'd say.03:04
wgrantHardy had a nice freeze to fix things up.03:04
ScottKIf my math was correct, it should land about right.03:04
NCommanderWhy was it revivied in feisty?03:04
ScottKIf not, then slangasek can yell at me.03:04
persiaNCommander, Someone wanted it enough to put buildds in the DC.03:04
wgrantNCommander: Because it was gone for a release or two.03:04
StevenKNCommander: Because lamont loves hppa03:05
TheMusoNCommander: No different to how we love PowerPC, and want to see the port survive.03:05
wgrantThe buildds had been there forever, but the port was missing for Edgy at least.03:05
ScottKIt was missing because I can't remember what threads thing was totally broken on hppa at the time.03:05

Hobbseeslangasek: probably multiplying by the page number or something03:19

wgrantIt takes into account historical build time, but that of course dies because of palmer.03:19

wgrantpersia: It's not whitelisted any more.03:21

wgrantpersia: beta.lp.net was, but edge hasn't been for 18 months.03:21
persiaAh.  Stiil, edge tends to have lots of broken stuff : I like to find out about it all at once : reduces my sense of pain.03:22
ScottKPersonally I find discovering bad stuff on edge more depressing.03:22
ScottKIf it's in production, they say "sorry, too late it's in production".03:23
ScottKI can understand that.03:23
Hobbseei'm currently finding that edge behaves like production now anyway, so reconsidering my subscription to edge.03:23
ScottKIf it's on edge, they say "No, we don't care how much it hurts, we aren't changing it"03:23

wgrantI think we need more buildds.03:28
persiaWith ~400 langpacks on the DVD, I'm guessing rescheduling stuff won't help much.03:28

wgrantWe can't exactly implement a more sensible way right now.03:29
persiawgrant, No.  Certainly not today.03:29

StevenKThere we go. hppa is still at 20 builds, and i386 has hit 19804:49

ZehRiqueslangasek: Hello, Steeve. Could you talk with me about translations or tell me who deals with them?07:59
slangasekZehRique: you probably want to talk with the localization team for the language in question; ubuntu-l10n-ptbr perhaps?08:26
ZehRiqueslangasek: No, Steeve. I'm member of the l10n-ptbr team. But I found an error on just one important string on the "gnome-menus" package. Would it be possible to correct it?08:27
slangasekZehRique: a "misspelling" error, or an "insults the user's family and makes them hate us" error?  Only the latter could warrant a rebuild of language packs now for release08:29
slangasekZehRique: updates to lang packs after the release may be possible; for that you should talk to pitti or ArneGoetje in #ubuntu-devel08:31
ZehRiqueslangasek: Well, the case is consistency of the translation between several distros, not only Ubuntu. I did the upstream of the GNOME packages in pt_BR, but some translator changed the string and I noticed just now. :(08:33
slangasekZehRique: that's unfortunate, but not something that we can afford to stop the release process to fix08:34
slangasekZehRique: what was the wrong string, OOI?08:35
ZehRiqueslangasek: OK. I understand. I'll try to talk with piti or ArneGoetje later to know if we can change. ;)08:35
ZehRiqueslangasek: The change was made on the main menu. The correct string should be "Multimídia" and it was packaged as "Som & Vídeo".08:37
slangasekZehRique: that doesn't sound incorrect to me.  "Sound and Video" is the correct category name in English...08:37
ZehRiqueslangasek: yes, but we the LDP-BR discussion list stated that the string should be "Multimídia" on GNOME, KDE and XFCE.08:39
ZehRiqueslangasek: the major distros are translated this way, only Ubuntu remains on "Som & Vídeo". But... if it's not so important for now, we can wait for the next release of Intrepid. ;)08:41
slangasekZehRique: you're aware that the use of "Sound and Video" is a deliberate change from the previous "Multimedia", in English?08:42
ZehRiqueslangasek: No. The team changed it and roll it back again?08:45
ZehRiqueexcuse me for the bad english.08:45
slangasekZehRique: in the past, "Multimedia" was used in GNOME for English.  The present use of "Sound & Video" is a deliberate change.08:45
ZehRiqueslangasek: wow... and they changed again.08:47
ZehRiqueslangasek: I won't take more of your time. Thanks for your patience with me. :)08:48

ScottK-laptopYou can do tarball in tarball, but I've never seen it cause anything but pain.13:32
joaopintomarcin_ant, why do you need a source tarball inside of a source package ?13:37
slaytonare there anyplans to backport the Intrepid gstreamer packages to hardy?13:43
directhexwould it cause ABI breakage?13:43
directhexi suspect the risk of regression is high, unless there are compelling reasons13:43
marcin_antjoaopinto: well, not sure - maybe because original tarballs are pretty weird - they are tgz, tar.gz, zip - sometimes they have subfolders with code sometimes code is just in / - tarball.mk can handle this in easy way13:45
NCommanderdoko, I was curious if I can help with the toolchain by running the regression test on all ports architectures13:45
marcin_antjoaopinto: this is why I ask here13:45
dokoNCommander: which regression tests?13:45
NCommanderglibc (expect on HPPA), GCC, G++, ObjC, etc.13:46
joaopintomarcin_ant, you are not expected to move tarballs into the source unless there is a VERY strong reason for that13:46
dokothey are run with every upload, just check the build logs and the summaries in the packages13:46
* NCommander helped keep GCC going on m68k13:46
joaopintothe orig.tar.gz should match the upstream tarball13:46
NCommanderdoko, ah, anything I can do to help toolchain folks on port architecutres, or is all covered?13:46
dokoNCommander: well, rebuild the archive with gcc-snapshot, and report problems upstream, this could help the community ports13:48
NCommanderdoko, I'll have to find a few more port boxes, my PowerPC will take until the next LTS to build the archive, but we can probably get it done13:48

jdongsuperm1: you say you have a functional apple keyboard without hidd?15:12
jdongof all the freaking irony the stuff I expected to struggle with worked out of the box15:12
directhexjdong, of course, i've never used a bluetooth input device that didn't involve cheap hax, e.g. mobile phone based mouse input, or ps3 bluetooth remote w/ driver written in python15:12
jdongand the stuff I never expected to give me trouble ARE giving me trouble.15:13

directhexjdong, you know you can play doom3 on macos, yes? :p15:14
jdongdirecthex: if by play you mean watch a slideshow of what the game would be like.... yes.15:16
jdongdirecthex: and that brings me to irony #2: Booting an ATI powered system to Linux for better gaming performance.15:16
jdonghell is going to freeze over any second now.15:16
directhexO_o15:17
* directhex bought a 24" imac for the office, purely because smaller models lacked nvidia15:17
jdongdirecthex: I only bought the PC version of the game; I tried the Mac demo and 640x480xlow lags.15:17
jdongdirecthex: and I primarily bought this iMac to run OS X and CoreVideo/Quartz2D benches are nearly twice as fast on ATI hardware than nvidia15:18
jdongmaybe that'll change now that nvidia seems to be Apple's preferred GPU chipset15:18
directhexfor the time being.15:18
directhexmaybe they'll fix their 2d performance in linux one day too15:18
jdong:)15:18
superm1jdong, yes sir15:19
jdongsuperm1: how do you get it to pair without hidd?15:19
superm1jdong, here's the bigggg catch to these apple keyboards15:19
superm1jdong, they remember the last couple of pairings15:19
jdongWHAT?15:19
directhexmaybe superm1 could punch whoever at dell is making my new latitude take months to ship, while he's at it. that'd be good.15:19
superm1jdong, if you have any previously paired devices in the vicinity, they will hook onto them while you are trying to pair to the new device15:20
jdongsuperm1: well hmm I only have the iMac there that I've paired it with.15:20
jdongsuperm1: I just get pairing failed from bluetooth-wizard15:20
jdongsuperm1: hidd --connect has no problem though15:20
superm1jdong, here's what happened to me: i've had one of mine paired at work and home.  i didn't realize i left it in my work bag, when i was at work i suddenly got '2's all over the document.  didn't know what was going on, until i realized the keyboard was in the bag.  i got home and was watching a tv show on my mythbox.  the "i" key kept getting pressed, exact same thing.  I tried to pair it with a testing laptop both at home and work, and it d15:21
superm1oesn't want to pair while anything else it's been with is near by15:21
superm1hidd --connect appears to work i'd empirically guess because it's more forceful and swift about the process15:22
jdongsuperm1: maybe I'll give a few shots with a cold-boot and only putting in the batteries after GNOME starts15:22
jdongsuperm1: I have a feeling perhaps the HID proxy that the EFI initializes might be bothering the keyboard too15:22
superm1jdong, you're gonna hate this too then; it appears that pairings stick after you pull batteries out..15:23
superm1but that's a good experiment likely as long as the hid proxy gets stopped when bluetooth gets initialized15:24
superm1jdong, you are referring to the newer "aluminum" BT keyboard right?15:24
jdongsuperm1: correct15:24
jdongsuperm1: the silver plastic one ;-)15:25
superm1jdong, well the one "marketed" as an aluminum one.  but yeah, i've got two of them, and really have to struggle to make them pair, but they eventually do it15:25
jdongsuperm1: I'll give more effort when I get some spare time15:25
jdongsuperm1: good to know that you can get them to pair with enough effort15:25
jdongfor now I'll just kick it with hidd in rc.local15:26
jdongI want to get away from that ugly hack ASAP :)15:26
superm1jdong, it's quite possible there is a bug in the wizard though where there needs to be special handling for this15:26
superm1jdong, so if you really want to (and trust me you do), you can analyze the differences of what really happens with hidd --connect and the wizard15:26
jdongsuperm1: I notice there's a hardcoded 0000 passkey for older apple keyboards15:26
jdongthe MAC addies shown there don't match those of the new keyboard/mice15:26
superm1jdong, yeah but the newer ones can accept user inputted passkeys15:26
jdongI have no idea if that's relevant15:26
jdongam I supposed to be prompted for a passphrase?15:27
superm1well newer keyboards at least15:27
superm1yup15:27
jdongwell that's not happening either :D15:27
superm1i've also had to hit the exact sequence of when it's put in discovery mode and clicking next in the wizard, which makes me think timing bug and why hidd --connect and its swiftness plays into it15:27
jdongsuperm1: there's no editing of any sort I have to do for authorization?15:29
jdongthis should just be trying a lot at the wizard?15:29
superm1jdong, yup, i've done this off of a fresh install of a build a few days before RC15:29
superm1jdong, the bluez patches post RC only help some dell hardware that I know struggles with BT15:30
jdongsuperm1: ok so this should just be hold the power button until it blinks, then try to connect from the UI right?15:31
superm1jdong, that's how it's "supposed to work" :)15:32

jdongsuperm1: grumble no luck yet :-/15:51
jdongsuperm1: I do see it immediately trying to connect to the BT adaptor though15:51
jdongwhich confirms what you said15:51
jdongit obviously looks for the last thing it was paired with15:52
superm1given there is a past pairing with the exact same device, i think you are going to have a difficult time15:52

cambridgecowI need to get the gstreamer debs from intrepid, but I want to continue running hardy, what is the best way of doing this?16:26
cambridgecowis this even possible?16:26
ScottK!backports | cambridgecow16:27
ubottucambridgecow: If new updated Ubuntu packages are built for an application, then they may go into Ubuntu Backports. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports - See also !packaging16:27
cambridgecowScottK, so if they are not in backports then I pretty much am out of luck?16:28
NCommanderScottK, did we ever backport gstreamer?16:29
ScottKcambridgecow: At best it'd be risky.  You can ask for a backport if there isn't one.16:30
ScottKNCommander: No idea.16:30
cambridgecowScottK, do I ask here for the backport?16:30
ScottKcambridgecow: Read the link I sent you.  It explains it.16:30
cambridgecowk16:30
NCommanderScottK, I know I won't want to attempt a gstreamer backport. the rdepends are ugly16:30
directhexi did some gstreamer backports for dapper once16:37
directhexseemed to function okay16:37
cambridgecowok I filed the backport request... thanks (btw its not for all of gstreamer just gstreamer-plugins-ugly, but I'm guessing all of gstreamer might be required on the backport)16:37

LaneyWhat's the best thing to do for Intrepid release? Still rcbugs?18:27
geserLaney: perhaps testing the upgrade would be good18:27
ScottKLaney: ISO testing or look into SRUs for Intrepid.18:27
ScottKUpgrade testing is good too.18:27
Laneyrighto18:28
LaneyOoh, full sound in vbox. How novel18:29
gesera candidate for a SRU (perhaps even security) would be mediawiki (fixing an XSS bug)18:30
superm1Laney, by default?  I thought you have to turn on pulseaudio in your VM actively to get it18:31
ScottKgeser: intrepid-proposed is a valid upload target right now.18:31
Laneysuperm1: Maybe I enabled it before. I just know that it didn't work and now it does.18:31
superm1Laney, ah.  i've had it working for the last month, but i know i had to go out of my way to turn it on18:31
superm1so did one of my mac friends who i convinced to try it18:32
LaneyI haven't booted this Hardy VM in a while it seems - 236 updates18:32
Laneygeser: I've just looked at mediawiki. Can we sync for -security?18:44
ScottKLaney: No.18:46
ScottKMake a debdiff.18:46
LaneyScottK: Well can it be a debdiff which is just between intrepid and lenny-security? Or must it be for ubuntu?18:47
LaneyI guess I'm asking if we can just take security fixes from Debian18:47
ScottKTake the intrepid package and just add the fix for the security issue.18:47
Laney(obviously testing them)18:47
ScottKIt needs a proper revision number.18:47
Laneyalright18:48
geserLaney: take the patch from 1.12.0-2lenny118:50
geserapply it to the intrepid package and version is correctly18:51
Laneygeser: Yes, I will. I was wondering if we could just copy that package, but I get it now18:51
geserin the end it will be same package as in lenny but with a different version number18:51
Laneycorrect18:51
macowhat is the criteria for removing a package from universe?19:13
directhexmaco, total removal from the archive?19:13
macoyeah19:13
macodirecthex: i'm thinking of emerald. it's really unstable and isn't supported upstream anymore.  their response is to just stop using it and switch to gtk-window-decorator when using compiz19:14
gesermaco: a good reason and not breaking other packages19:14
ScottKWell we removed it once and it got brought back by popular demand.19:14
macooh19:14

ScottKThat was a while ago though.19:15
macobefore compiz became able to make metacity themes act transparent-like with g-w-d?19:15
ScottKDunno.  I use KDE, so I've never used either.19:16
macoemerald themes look nice...but combine nvidia and emerald and my intel graphics will often out-pace them...the entire gui slows down awfully.19:16
NCommandermaco, are you sure you have acceleration enabled? There should be no slowdown if you do have it proeprly enabled19:18
macoNCommander: it wasnt my computer. it was on my friend's laptop. if he used g-w-d, it was fine. if he switched to emerald it was really slow. and he was using the nvidia drivers19:19
directhexNCommander, nvidia's 2d performance is broken, it causes major trouble for some things19:19
macowhen we asked in #compiz-fusion, they said to stop using emerald19:19
NCommanderdirecthex, strange, I don't have that problem w/ my nvidida card w/ the blobs19:20
macoits not on all models19:20
directhexNCommander, depends on which APIs are being tickled. talk to the kde4 folk, and you'll notice the burning torches & pitchforks19:20

lagaACK19:21
NCommanderdirecthex, anyway, do you still have interest in your mono packages on PPC and other port archs?19:21
directhexNCommander, generally speaking, sure. but i don't know how much time i have to devote on it, as i move my efforts less onto my backports & more onto the actual pkg-mono team19:22
NCommanderdirecthex, we lost you to the dark side19:22
directhexNCommander, debian's the dark side now?19:23
NCommanderno, mono vs backports19:24
directhexNCommander, working with pkg-mono means better ubuntu releases19:24
directhexNCommander, and working more closely wih upstream means it too. i've already had upstream remove the need for +dfsg on 2 packages19:24
NCommanderyay19:26
directhexNCommander, my plan is for ubuntu's mono stack to be all syncs. i should achieve that goal with jaunty, although only as long as the core devs actually ask before slapping an ubuntu increment on a package19:30
* NCommander nods19:30
directhexgenerally speaking, i see debian work as the best way to improve ubuntu19:32
NCommanderdirecthex, just remember that lenny is close to release, so a lot of maintainers are trying to avoid needing to use testing-proposed-updated19:33
directhexNCommander, which is why sid lies stagnant for us. but we're aiming to go postal on experimental19:34
* NCommander notes that jaunty is going to hurt because of said sid stagnation19:34
directhexNCommander, yes. 0ubuntu1 everywhere. oy.19:35
NCommandermaybe we should flock down on their RC bugs and fix them19:36

NCommanderRainCT, go for it!20:15
RainCTHeh. Can I just add it somewhere on the wiki or do I have to poke someone?20:15
RainCTok I see20:17
NCommanderRainCT, just poke jcastro20:19
* RainCT was writing "/me pokes jcastro" right now :)20:19
jcastroRainCT: what topic do you want to cover?20:21
RainCTjcastro: "REVU Q&A" (could be 30 min or something.. preferably on friday as it's better for me and this way it would also be after the packaging sessions)20:23
jcastroRainCT: sounds great, take a slot! (And don't forget the description at the bottom)20:25
bobbojcastro: Would an "Introduction to BZR" fit in with the type of sessions you want to run for OpenWeek?20:26
RainCTbobbo: there's actually already one20:27
bobboRainCT: someone stole my session! :P20:27
jcastrobobbo: a more advanced session after the intro one wouldn't be bad either20:27
bobbojcastro: could work, IIRC emma janes session only touches the basics20:28
ScottKblueyed: When I debdiffed it there was more than that.20:29
bobbojcastro: I'll get back to you in a bit?20:29
jcastrobobbo: yeah, usually those are best for openweek, advanced stuff can go into developer week, but I think there is plenty of room for an advanced session20:29
jcastrobobbo: sure!20:29
blueyedScottK: the .cvsignore files probably?! it seems like they go ignored in the native package, but not in the orig.tar.gz..20:30
blueyedScottK: anyway.. I'll have to go for some hours now..20:30
ScottKblueyed: As a practical matter I think it's fine as it is.20:31

stefanlsdmm. git for me was too complex. bzr is nicer, but slower i find.20:53

DktrKranzScottK, can be easily worked-around using pull-lp-source, it would require just some more lines22:55
