cjwatsonsladen: they are not allowed. use .tar.gz00:08
sladencjwatson: this is for the .deb, not the .orig  Using dh_builddeb -- -Z lzma  is saving ~50%00:14
sladencjwatson: or is it just  gz and bzip2  allowed for .debs in the archive00:15
RAOFsladen: I'm pretty sure mesa is already lzma compressed, which would suggest that it's OK.  Check it out?00:15
cjwatsonsladen: oh, well then those have been allowed for ages with a suitable Pre-Depends00:16
cjwatsonnamely dpkg (>= 1.14.12ubuntu3)00:17
calccjwatson: pre-depends not needed anymore as of lp 2.2.300:33
cjwatsonok00:34
calcsladen: you should be able to just upload lzma compressed debs without doing anything else special now00:35
calcsladen: up until ~ april 1 you had to have a pre-depends00:35
hyperairlzma compressed debs? as in data.tar.gz replaced with data.tar.lzma or something?00:36
cjwatsonyes.00:36
cjwatsonit makes sense for some particularly large packages00:36
calchyperair: its been supported since gutsy (iirc)00:36
hyperairi see.00:37
hyperairso how come it never really took off?00:37
calcor maybe it was hardy, i can't recall00:37
calchyperair: big things use it already such as OOo00:37
hyperairi see00:37
sladencjwatson: ta.  (And I'm a great fan of Pre-Dpedns for funky compression methods, so I'll add it ;-)00:37
hyperairbut how do you trigger it building as lzma instead of gz?00:37
calci was discussing with Keybuk about potentially making it the default for dpkg for karmic, but not sure that it is that helpful without also having lzma for squashfs00:37
cjwatsondh_builddeb -- -Zlzma00:38
cjwatsoncalc: I don't think that's suitable00:38
hyperairaah00:38
cjwatsonI would advise against such a change00:38
calccjwatson: too slow for desktop cd or something else?00:38
calcaiui novell already does it by default for rpm (not saying that it is a reason to do it though)00:38
cjwatsonI'm very concerned about the behaviour on low-memory systems00:39
cjwatsonand am strongly inclined to veto this00:39
calcok00:39
calchow low do we support as far as low-mem is concerned?00:39
cjwatsonfor installation, at least down as far as 64MB; lower is manageable but it gets slow due to localedef00:40
calciirc it uses ~ 30MB to decompress, so it is valid if we support very low-mem situations i suppose00:40
calcwow i didn't realize we supported that low00:40
cjwatsonobviously you can't run a standard Ubuntu desktop on that (hence why I'm not worried about OOo using data.tar.lzma) but there are other valid use cases using the Ubuntu archive that aren't a full desktop00:41
calcyea00:41
cjwatsonI'm pretty sure I raised the same concern a while back00:41
cjwatsonI do think lzma has been great for getting us some much-needed space on the alternate CD in particular targeted areas, and I'm very grateful for that00:42
calci think in the past when i had talked to you it was more an issue of low-mem ~ 256MB machines installing via the desktop cd, or something to that effect00:42
cjwatsonbut I think we should leave it at that rather than pushing it too far00:42
calcyea thats fine00:42
cjwatsonmemory is an issue on desktop CD installs too, certainly00:42
cjwatsonwe've found it difficult to hold it to 256MB00:43
calcluckily we have the install without booting into desktop option as well00:43
calcwhich i imagine takes a lot less than 256MB00:43
cjwatsonthe desktop CD is a situation where noticeably more memory can be used during installation than is required for the installed system, which I regard as a fairly major problem00:43
cjwatsonit's not that much less, unfortunately00:43
cjwatsonI think it's still clear, but not comfortably so00:44
calccjwatson: someone had requested an option for a gui netinst, would that lower the requirements without having to fall all the way back to ncurses?00:44
cjwatsonyes, to some extent00:44
calccjwatson: from what i can see debian has that and it only takes ~ 15MB for a netinst cd with gui00:44
cjwatsonwe will be doing that once a current version of GTK gets fixed to be able to support the directfb backend again00:45
cjwatson(Debian unstable has run into the exact same problem; it isn't just us)00:45
TheMuso/c/c00:45
calcof course it takes more than that in ram to run it, but probably less than the current desktop cd direct install method00:45
calccjwatson: ah i see :)00:45
cjwatsonit's not a replacement for ubiquity; it's (largely) a straight translation of the current d-i dialogs into GTK00:46
infinitycjwatson: Another ubuntu-autotest run is in progress, BTW (just kicked off), if you want to watch the list.00:46
cjwatsonwhich is serviceable, but it isn't a by-hand designed interface. I expect we'll need to put quite a bit of work into some areas00:46
infinitycjwatson: Seeing as how the attempt to do the same with soyuz seemed to go unpleasantly.00:46
cjwatsoncalc: (I was one of the developers who put a lot of time into the GTK installer in Debian, so I'm reasonably familiar with it ;-) )00:47
calccjwatson: isn't the alternate cd d-i also?00:47
cjwatsonthough I didn't do the final stretch, just a good deal of the early underpinnings - there was a time when I was about the only person working on it00:48
cjwatsoncalc: yes00:48
cjwatsoninfinity: ok00:48
calccjwatson: so its different than the current desktop installer but a nicer looking version of what we currently use in the alternate cd00:48
cjwatsoncalc: it's just dropping in a different debconf frontend, basically00:49
calchmm we'd have to put that on the alternate cd as a gui installer then, since the desktop cd isn't done in a manner that d-i knows how to install from, aiui?00:49
cjwatsonthat's correct. More realistically, the server CD00:49
calcok00:49
cjwatson(since the server CD has quite a bit of spare space but the alternate is usually kind of tight)00:50
calcok00:51
calcor just lzma a package or two and then we have space on the alternate cd again ;-)00:51
cjwatsonalso, the corporate services guys are actually pushing for this00:51
* calc has to run buy groceries but will be back ~ 1hr00:52
TheMusoSome of the other UbuntuStudio devs have also expressed an interest in using the GTK d-i for the studio disks.00:52
cjwatsonright00:53
cjwatsonI did try to do it for jaunty but the aforementioned GTK problems shot it down00:53
TheMusoYep00:53
TheMusoA11y wise, I don't care about GTK d-i, since the Ubuntu desktop CD's installer is accessible enough to be usable now.00:54
ikus060I made a modification in the kernel source code. Now I wan to test this modification but before I need to compile the kernel01:01
ikus060Can someone refer me so some documentation ?01:02
sladencjwatson: I'm a believer in sticking to .gz for base packages.   But what's your view on alternate compressors ("advancecomp" et al) that can get another 15% out of the deflate stream by trying harder01:03
ikus060In fact, I thikn I only need to compile one part of the kernel : hid01:05
cjwatsonsladen: IME we are at the point where other strategies for saving space, such as working on more efficient representations and shipping of translated documentation, represent much better bang for our buck01:07
infinitycjwatson: I say we just remove libx11 and anything that depends on it, and see how that works out.01:10
bryceinfinity: wow, that could save me a lot of work01:10
infinitybryce: See?  I'm a giver.01:11
cjwatsonkees: do you know what happened to the sudo patch I'm sure we used to have that passed through all environment variables if sudoers says you can run whatever command you like?01:17
cjwatsonkees: are we supposed to just use sudo -E now? (This comes up because libgksu never passes sudo -E.)01:22

javitohi02:27
javitoi am reading in debian-policy website that the latest version is 3.8.1.0.... but what should i use in my debian/control file  3.8.1.0  or 3.8.1 ??02:29
cjwatsonjavito: you should read the part of the policy manual that covers the Standards-Version field02:30
cjwatsonjavito: section 5.6.1102:30
javitocjwatson: thanks02:32
javitois very clear here02:32
tedgHeh, the Debian Policy manual is so complete that the answer to the question "I'm reading the manual and don't understand, what do I do?" is "Read the manual" :)02:33
cjwatsonit's comprehensive enough that it's understandable for people to get lost until they've made enough use of it to have a general feel for where to find things02:35
calciirc one of the first things you are supposed to do before applying as a DD is to read the entire policy manual :)02:36

javitowhen will be allow upload bugfix to karmic?03:12
sladenwell, you can upload bugfixes to jaunty03:13
javitoincluding minor bugs?03:13
sladenbut new versions, and new packages, and new features need to wait until karmic opens (~6 weeks)03:13
sladenjavito: if it helps the quality of the release, yes03:14
javitobut a bugfix impleis increase the version03:14
sladenjavito: increasing the -0ubuntuX package version, yes03:15
javitook then thanks03:15
sladenjavito: to get a new upstream release in, it has to be a bugfix only release03:15
javitosorry for my stupid questions i'm really newbie here :D03:16
sladenjavito: yeah, if nobody was allowed to fix bugs and nobody allowed to upload, we might as well have released a month ago... :)03:16
javitosladen: maybe only for critical bugs, like in stable debian03:17
javitosince frozen03:17
javitoit just why i asked03:17
sladenjavito: post-release, you need a stable-release-update exception (eg. a security issue)03:18
keescjwatson: I think pitti removed most of it, but kept a whitelist for things like http_proxy, but beyond that I don't remember.03:18
keescjwatson: though, recently, I was pretty sure that environment was passed unfiltered if one was in sudoers with an "ALL".03:19
Hobbseehrm.  How does one not use these new notifications for just pidgin...03:25
sladenHobbsee: irssi :)03:25
Hobbseei do like it for things that are actual "doesn't matter if you miss them" notifications, but for pidgin, it means that i miss the notifications, and there's absolutely *no* indication that someone's sent me a reply to a message.  And i'm not convinced that the notifications actually fire every time, at all.  Fail.03:26
Hobbseesladen: i guess I could use bitlbee and konversation, yes.03:26
Hobbseesladen: irssi, if i use the notifier, is goign to have exactly the same problem, on a bigger scale?03:26
TheMusoHobbsee: there was discussion about irssi and notifications here yesterday, I can't remember the result of that conversation however.03:27
sladenHobbsee: somebody (look for the logs) was discussing something similar earlier.   Ah, TheMuso has beaten me to it03:27
sladens/look/lookings/03:28
HobbseeTheMuso: i get the feeling that the more i send thru the notifier, the more messages i'll only see hours later when i happen to manually open up the window again, though03:28
TheMusoHobbsee: I don't know how the notification works, since I don't use it.03:28
HobbseeTheMuso: ah03:28
Hobbseesladen: i'll do that, but i suspect that'd make my problem worse again03:29
sladenHobbsee: IIRC, libnotify is "replaced" by the new back end so everything is gets diverted to /dev/null (well, a 3 second pop-up, then /dev/null)03:29
Hobbseesladen: damn.  that's *exactly* what i'm trying to avoid.03:30
Hobbseesladen: and i'm really not convinced that the popups work all the time, either03:30
sladenHobbsee: probably what will happen is that the pidgin authors will get pissed off, and switch to their own internal notification system, skipping the "standard" as it doesn't do what they want03:31
Hobbseesladen: heh. That sounds about right.03:31
Hobbseehrm, I guess i could switch to kopete or something03:31
Hobbseewhich should bypass the new notifier stuff03:32
sladenyou can do other mad setups, like irssi-proxy  (irssi, but it also listens on a port and passes everything through so that you can daisy chain to another IRC client)03:33
Hobbseethat's true.  I'm already doing funky things with proxies.03:33
Hobbseebut that's not a bad idea03:33
sladenif daisy chaining worked /really well/ you could have a IRC "client" that did nothing but display flashing notifications03:34
sladenI don't really have a solution (as it's not a use-case I've hit and had to work around yet)03:34
Hobbseethe irc isn't really the problem - konversation doesn't (and probably won't) use the new notifications for this release.  It's only the other protocols.03:35
sladenperhaps the long term key is to modify the funky new libnotify backend, to be ware of state03:35
Hobbseemmm03:36
sladeneg. is the screen-saver running, is there keyboard/mouse activity, is there a full screen movie03:36
sladenwhat's that four-quardrant system for prioritising?    There's two axis, one is urgency and the other is importance03:37
sladenso it could be less urgent than watching the full screen movie, but important enough to save until later03:38
Hobbseetrue03:38
sladenHobbsee: anyway, we probably know who to blame for the new design if it gets panned post-release ;-)03:39
Hobbseesladen: hmmm?03:39
sladenHobbsee: the same person who brought us nekkid desktop wallpaper!03:45
sladenI suspect the new notifier will end up covering 90% of use-cases better than it did before, but leave an empty space for the other 10%03:46
Hobbseeah, right03:46
Hobbseeindeed.03:46
Hobbseealthough I personally think "give me some obvious notification that i've received a message over msn / jabber / etc via pidgin, after the fact" would be a fairly large use case for pidgin...03:47
HobbseeAh well.  I'm sure the notification team will decide how to do it best, and if they don't, debian will get a lot more people.03:48
* Hobbsee goes off to research how to make pidgin behave more sensible03:49
Hobbseeer, sensibly03:49
jcastroHobbsee: the messaging-indicator is where the missed notifications get queued up03:49
Hobbseejcastro: except that it doesn't work.03:49
Hobbseejcastro: they never show up there03:49
jcastrothat's a bug then03:49
Hobbseesorry, the ones about the fact that someone's signed in do, but not the ones that say i've received a message.03:50
jcastroonly the messages are supposed to queue up in there03:50
jcastronot like, when people sign in and stuff03:50
Hobbseeand speaking of that, i'm not so crash hot on having to have *two* icons on my panel about it, or having to keep pidgin open, because otherwise pidgin quits.03:50
Hobbseeif only it worked...When's the ETA on getting a fix?03:51
jcastrothere should just be one icon, the little envelope for the messaging indicator03:51
jcastrodunno, mine works, maybe ask in #dx?03:51
Hobbseehmmm.  might have to ask later when they're awake03:51
sladenjcastro: so unread IM/email messages are hiding until the envelope, until you click it, and then they /are/ being shown?03:52
jcastroright03:53
Hobbseesladen: that would make sense.03:53
jcastrowhen there are new ones in there there's a green dot on the envelope03:53
jcastroso basically, instead of a pidgin icon, a new evo mail icon, etc. you just have them all under one icon03:53
jcastrowhich also btw brings the contact list up for pidgin03:54
AmaranthI thought empathy got ported as well03:54
jcastroright03:54
AmaranthI never thought notifications would be the reason Ubuntu started maintaining a large number of deltas from upstream03:55
jcastroalot are accepting them03:55
jcastrothough I don't have statistics on that03:55
AmaranthSure, if it's just "cleanup your usage to check for features" and stuff like that03:56
Amaranthor "use append mode"03:56
sladenyeah, it missed the first /msg  but saw the second and third03:59
sladenand gives me an exploding envelope03:59
sladenwell, that'd be pidgin crashing04:02
sladenHmm, the option is called "Shutdown..." but the action is immediate (so should not have the ...)04:07
calcis there a reason that arrow keys don't work in insert mode in vim, i seem to recall this used to work at some point04:37
calcbut not i just inserts a new line with eg "B:04:37
calcer "B"04:37
Hobbseejcastro: hrm.  It appears that my existing config was making it not behave properly.  Has the dx team tested with previous release configs, instead of clean slates?04:44
jcastroHobbsee: not sure, that is a good point though04:44
Hobbseeah, but the minimise to tray functionality isn't there.  dammit.04:44
Hobbseeor the minimise to anything, really04:45
Hobbseejcastro: did you find a way around that?04:45
Hobbseeat least i get the right things in the envelope now!04:48
spmcalc: wfm. my fading memory suggests that tends to be caused by a zotted or simply wrong TERM - eg should be xtermc, is set to sun-console :-/ I think terminals can also get into a gaga state as well, and need resetting.04:57

kwwiievand: it seems we need to work on the time zone map some more...two problems: 1) the pics are scaled up during a "real" install and 2) the text is black and the background too dark for that11:40
evand1kwwii: by being scaled up do you mean that they're scaled to be greater than their original resolution?  If so I believe cjwatson fixed that.11:40
evand1and indeed on the text.  Did you have a better color in mind?  It's quite easy to change.11:41

=== evand1 is now known as evand
cjwatsonevand: I didn't do anything about that11:46
cjwatsonevand,kwwii: the change I made (relatively recently) was to prevent the images being unnecessarily scaled down from their original resolution when the screen is big enough to comfortably accommodate the full sizes11:47
cjwatsonthe map is fiddly to use when scaled down; that's acceptable when we have to do it to make it fit on the screen, but IMO we should make use of bigger screen sizes when we have them11:47
evandoh, my mistake.  I misread the changelog entry then.11:47
kwwiicjwatson, evand: the problem I am seeing is that the pics are being scaled up larger than the original size and therefore have blurry edges11:48
evandkwwii: I'll take care of that11:48
kwwiicool :-)11:48
cjwatsonthat's very odd. what size of screen?11:48
cjwatsonevand: is this something you can reproduce?11:48
kwwiicjwatson: 1920x1440 or such11:49
cjwatsonthe code just says "if screen big enough: use normal images; else: use half-size images11:49
cjwatson"11:49
kwwiicjwatson: it seems to be normal sized when I install from the live CD but when I click on install ubuntu directly it scales them up it seems11:49

cjwatsonthat'll be the full-screening11:49
cjwatsonI bet that the map widget is set to expand11:49

mdzit uses shell-style glob matching rather than a regex, which is a bit simpler19:11
TheMusomdz: I see the apport utils alsa hook retrieves pci information about audio hardware. Does this also retrieve the vendor and device IDs as well, since these are often needed for hda hardware enablement/debugging.19:18

cjwatsonyes, it is possible for them to create new bugs, but they will be very localised, and for the most part (not always in the case of translations of C programs, but always in the case of debconf translations) cosmetic22:14
cellofellowWill Jaunty have the new GTK version of Aptitude (0.5.0). I checked and currently it only has 0.4.1.22:16
maxbAs there are only hours to go until FinalFreeze, I think "no" is a safe bet22:17
cellofellowOh, really only hours?22:17
maxb~ 2h40m22:18
cellofellowwell, yeah No will be the right answer.22:18

mvocellofellow: we will talk about it at uds and decide22:21
cellofellowOk then. :) So, we've had this discussion before I take it?22:21
slangasekAdri2000: that's the official deadline; the actual freeze may happen any time after that (it requires coordinating multiple people in order to get the button pushed)22:22
Adri2000ok22:23
mvocellofellow: you take it in what sense?22:23
cellofellowmvo: oh, just how you said it would be discussed at UDS made me think this had been discussed before and it was decided to discuss it more then.22:23
mvocellofellow: sorry, I did not express myself clearly then. I meant to say "we will discuss about it at the next UDS"22:24
cellofellowok22:24
mvocellofellow: for jaunty it was not clear if the gtk frontend would make it out of experimental or not22:24
cellofellowIt's still there, hasn't hit Sid yet.22:24
cellofellowI thought Ubuntu pulled from Experimental though, not Sid.22:25
mvocellofellow: only for selected packages22:25
cellofellowoh, ok22:25
cellofellowand it pulls straight from upstream for some things like Firefox, right?22:25
mvoyes22:26
slangasekhmm.  for the life of me, I cannot figure out why intrepid had python-xmpp 0.3.1-1.2 instead of 0.4.1-cvs20080505.2.22:26

cellofellowgotcha22:27
slangasekin the "putting lots of metal through newfound holes in your skull" sense22:27
cellofellowwhen was the experimental branch started? I seem to remember once upon a time there only being stable, testing, and unstable.22:29
maxbexperimental isn't a full branch, more of an overlay on unstable22:30
maxbA question about FinalFreeze: are Python 2.6 DeprecationWarnings from console apps still worth fixing, or are they too cosmetic to be worth the overhead of freeze exception processing?22:31
cellofellowAccording to Wikipedia it says that stuff in Experimental is stuff that isn't considered stable upstream, whilst if it is stable upstream it gets put in unstable.22:32
slangasek...22:33
slangasekI think that section should be removed from the wikipedia article. :)22:33
slangasekmaxb: universe is still fairly open to bug fixes with a minimum of overhead, I would say they're still worth fixing22:34

lamontta23:00
lamontI wouldn't mind it so much if (1) I'd ever started using it, and (2) it was actually readable on the window23:00
calclamont: you can also set your background color light or dark to make it more readable if that is the issue23:01
calclamont: eg set bg=dark23:01
lamontcalc: I prefer the backgrounds I have, thank you.  syntax highlighting has never been of any signifcant use to me23:02
calclamont: er no the set bg=dark makes it change the highlighting colors (aiui anyway) so it shows up better on light or dark backgrounds23:03
calclamont: but yea if you don't need it just turn it off23:03
lamontbg is either grey or black or a dark purple for most of my windows23:05
lamontthen again, when I fire up a terminal, it's an xterm...23:05
lamontsorry seb23:05
calcwell in that case setting bg=dark should change the colors to be readable, at least for the dark cases23:06
calci always set my xterms to be white on black like console so i just have mine set to bg=dark in vimrc23:07
* calc doesn't like the black on white in default gnome-terminal23:07
Adri2000speaking of vim, is it just me or vim stopped wrapping debian/changelog lines to 80 characters in jaunty?23:07
