Ryan52Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, your crash report is either missing or challenging to deal with as a '.crash' file. Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.01:48
Ryan52that's why it's invalid.01:49
crimsunaskand: because there wasn't enough information to debug. i've reset it to New.01:49
Ryan52gah. crimsun fixed it before I could finish what I was saying :p01:49
askandhaha thanks :)01:50
crimsunaskand: a little-known hint: check the activity log01:50
crimsunyou'll be able to more easily correlate why certain Statuses are set01:50
ashbringerShould I file a bug against vrms for finding packages non-free under the DFSG? I don't know how mainline Ubuntu aligns itself, but I do remember that when Gobuntu was alive, it followed FSF guidelines and there was some talk of patching vrms to take off the non-DFSG-free packages.01:50
askandah nice tips, wasnt aware of that01:50
crimsunashbringer: yes01:50
ashbringercrimsun: Separate bug per misidentified package or one bug for all of them?01:51
* nhandler notes that there is a greasemonkey script that displays the activity log data on the comment page01:52
crimsunashbringer: well, i may have misunderstood the original question. would you clarify "finding packages non-free under the DFSG?"01:52
crimsunnhandler: needs fixing. the correlation between person triaging and the activity is sometimes very wrong01:53
crimsunnot to mention it doesn't handle localtime, etc., but i don't mind it so much, since i just read the activity log regardless01:53
nhandlercrimsun: I've noticed. But it does still come in handy. Although my favorite is the one that shows the teams/karma next to a person ;)01:53
ashbringercrimsun: The DFSG applies the Four Freedoms to all works, including non-functional ones like media, icons, documentation, and the like. The FSF holds that there is a difference between functional (software) and non-functional (media, icons, documentation) works. So, the package gdb-doc, for instance, is non-free because it includes a back-cover text which (afaik) cannot be modified or removed.01:54
ashbringerAs well as invariant sections, which cannot be modified or removed.01:54
crimsunashbringer: from the Description, "In some cases, the opinions of Richard M. Stallman and the Debian project have diverged since this program was originally written.  In such cases, this program follows the Debian Free Software Guidelines."01:55
ashbringerBut Ubuntu follows (or followed) the FSF guidelines. Does that not overrule the Description?01:55
crimsunashbringer: gdb-doc is in main, so yes, the Description needs to be clarified01:58
ashbringerSo would it be helpful to file bug reports for vrms against packages that are FSF-free, but not DFSG-free? Or would it only be helpful to file bug reports for packages labeled non-free which are in main?01:59
crimsunashbringer: i would follow the main/universe/multiverse redistributability guidelines02:00
ashbringerMeaning what in terms of this?02:02
crimsunashbringer: vrms needs to be aligned with current archive acceptance standards02:03
ashbringerSo it should only report packages as non-free if they're in restricted?02:04
crimsunashbringer: in terms of your original question, it would be filing a bug against vrms to honour restricted / multiverse as opposed to main / universe02:04
ashbringerSo then, I should file bugs against packages vrms flags as non-free if the package is in main / universe. Should I file one bug per package or do it all in a big bug and update that as I find new violations?02:05
crimsunashbringer: how would filing bugs against those source packages help?02:06
crimsun("those" vice vrms)02:06
ashbringerNo, one bug against vrms per package.02:06
crimsunerr, i would just file one bug against vrms and use the Description as a whiteboard of sorts02:07
ashbringerMeaning what exactly?02:07
ashbringer(Sorry for all the questions, I'm a bit of a noob and don't want to make too big of a mistake.)02:07
crimsunfile a bug affecting vrms. in the Description, list the names of the sources packages that vrms flags incorrectly.02:08
ashbringerAlright. I'll do that. thanks for your help.02:09

persiaNot here.  I get annoyed sometimes when people ask if a change was correct in a bug comment.05:05

tawmasHi, I'm trying to obtain a backtrace for bug https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/315373 and I need some guidance. Also, apport kicked in while I was reproducing the bug, and I'd like to know if there's a way to attach that report to the bug.09:40
ubottuLaunchpad bug 315373 in nautilus "nautilus segfaults on insertion or removal of removable media" [Medium,Incomplete]09:40
persiatawmas, Did apport not give you the option of submitting a bug?09:43
persiaOne strategy is to submit the apport bug, mark it as a dupe, and then leave a comment in the master saying "recent apport trace available from bug #nnnnnn"09:43
persiaThat's probably easier than trying to get the trace manually.09:43
tawmaspersia, It did09:43
tawmaspersia, Ok, I'll do that way09:43
tawmaspersia, btw, I was lost on installing the debuggins symbols for nautilus. The wiki page I was directed to lacks directions for Jaunty09:44
persiatawmas, Which page?09:45
tawmaspersia, was directed here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash, which links here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Backtrace09:46
persiaOh, just replace "intrepid" with "jaunty" if you're running jaunty.09:46
tawmaspersia, Ok, thought so, but I saw I have nautilus-dbg installed and wondered if it was the same09:47
persiaBah.  My browser crashed trying to edit that.  Could you put a note on DebuggingProgramCrash to avoid confusion in the future?09:47
tawmaspersia, Don't know if I have permissions to, let me try09:48
tawmaspersia, it says "Immutable Page"09:49
tawmaspersia, btw, apport just timed out while uploading the report09:49
persiaImmunatble page?  I'll try again then.09:49
persiatawmas, Worked for me.  Dunno why.  Is that change less confusing, or should I be more explicit?09:51
tawmaspersia, what did you change?09:51
tawmaspersia, I'd prefer something more explicit09:53
persiatawmas, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash?action=diff&rev2=66&rev1=64 is closer?09:57
tawmaspersia: That looks perfect, thanks!09:57
tawmaspersia, btw, I got the debug symbols installed. Do I get it right that I need to attach to the running nautilus?09:58
persiatawmas: If you're using the gdb method, yes.10:00
persiaPersonally, I just use apport.10:01
persiaEven when I don't submit a bug, I find it's easier to use apport-retrace against the .crash report than to use gdb.10:01
tawmasI used gdb because apport timed out10:01
persiaBut maybe that's just because I don't like gdb that much.10:01
persiaapport timed out at which stage?  Saving the crash file, or submitting the bug?10:01
persiaCheck /var/crash10:03
persiaIn there you should have a crash file.10:03
persiaTry running apport-retrace against that crash file.10:03
tawmasWell, at least I learned how to obtain a backtrace with gdb :-)10:03
persiaYou'll have to read the man page: by default it seems to like to get the files from launchpad bugs, but it can work locally.10:03
tawmaspersia, will look into that. Thanks for your help. I've added the backtrace I got with gdb10:06
