superm1pitti, i may have some livecd-rootfs changes that will fix one of serious bugs for mythbuntu ISOs. i'm verifying right now that it actually fixes things with a local run of livecd-rootfs07:26

superm1pitti, i think it's because somehow a recommends is pulling in a whole bunch of gnome because of the order of dependency resolution for live disk builds07:44
superm1because mythbuntu doesn't use the tasks for LIST and LIVELIST (some problems earlier this year with doing so)07:45

superm1StevenK, any easy way to do such things?07:51

superm1StevenK, but i suppose if we can rid them from there we can switch to tasks for livecd-rootfs07:53
ogramvo, i want to make it impossible to upgrade from jaunty to karmic for certain armel machines, can you point me to the right place to put a script that checks /proc/cpuinfo ?07:53
superm1StevenK, so in looking through that, it claims that metacity comes in from gnome-control-center which comes from gnome-panel, which comes from gnome-panel-dbg, but it doesn't go any further up the chain, so how do I rid that out of there?07:54
StevenKsuperm1: Yeah, I sort of fell over there too07:55
mvoogra: upate-manager and there DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeQuirks.py - if you give me the details (what to look for in cpuinfo)  I can add it quickly for you if oyu want07:56
superm1StevenK, so perhaps is there a way I can just blacklist gnome-panel from the seed and hope for the best then?07:56
ogramvo, i'll work out a patch for you, essentially it should block if the "Processor" line of /proc/cpuinfo contains anything thats smaller than ARMv6 or ARMv7, thanks for the pointer07:58

StevenKpitti: The livecd does, but doesn't desktop also do that?08:01

dpmmorning pitti, I'm having a look at the translations imports queue for karmic, and I've noticed a few debian/po-up/patches.pot (for e.g. gnome-panel) and similar templates. Without having had a closer look at it before, I always assumed that patches were first applied and then a single template was produced (when the package had only one). Is this something new or am I missing the point?11:05
dpmwhat are those templates?11:05
seb128dpm, those are a debian thing to do translations for debian changes11:07
dpmseb128: is this a common practice? Could we somehow track the Ubuntu/Debian translation changes due to patches with those?11:10
seb128dpm, no it's marginal I think we should not bother and just use launchpad11:10
dpmseb128: ok, thanks. I was just wondering, because (without having thought oo much on the implementation) perhaps it could be used to mark in Rosetts those strings which are only specific to Ubuntu. But then again, it might also introduce a special case in Launchpad which would not be desirable.11:16
seb128dpm, all debian changes are not marked this way though11:17
dpmok, but within a single package which produces a separate .pot for patches, are generally all changes which affect strings collected in a single separate template?11:19
seb128dpm, it seems so11:22
StevenKpitti: Autologin looks great with the new spin11:24
dpmseb128: is it trivial to produce those separate templates for patches? I'm just wondering whether it would be useful to try to generalise that practice11:25
seb128dpm, should be trivial, it's a one line cdbs rules11:26
seb128dpm, I've not been looking to much into that I don't want po in the source package since that means you need upload to change translations11:27
seb128dpm, debian do that because they have no language packs they can use11:27
pittiStevenK, lool: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/karmic/alpha-3/ currently talks about the UNR "CD"11:31
pittigiven that it's way over 700 MB, what should it say instead? Are people expected to use usb-creator to write an image?11:31
dpmseb128: but this would just introduce a change in which we have the same situation as now (package produces a pot on build) plus a second template for the patches also generated on build, wouldn't it? Is it not how it is done in gnome-session? That's one of the packages where I first spotted this additional template.11:32
seb128dpm, I don't know the specific, I never used the system, it just add lot of cruft in the source package since it build template and po for all of those in the debian directory11:33
seb128dpm, look the gnome-session source for details11:33
dpmseb128: I'll do, thanks11:34
seb128dpm, in fact I was cleaning that cruft out in some packages when I resynced on debian, I think it doesn't bring us anything and is noisy11:34
pittiRiddell: is there an equivalent for usb-creator in Kubuntu?11:35
pittii. e. something that people can use to put an .iso to an USB stick?11:35
seb128pitti, the bzr version of usb-creator has a kde variant now11:36
seb128pitti, I'm waiting for that to land in karmic for some weeks now to switch it to gtkbuilder dunno why they don't upload to karmic11:37
seb128evand, ^11:37
pittiso how do KDE folks test these images then?11:37
dpmseb128: by cleaning that cruft you mean getting the package to build one single pot as usual? I think this might be the best approach for now, as otherwise I don't know what to do with those extra templates in the import queue. I think it might be worth considering if they might be useful in the future as I was saying earlier, but for now it think it might be best to stick to the more general practice of building one single template11:38
evandseb128: I'll do it now.  I've been hoping to finish the devicekit backend first, but that's not going to happen quickly11:38
pittiStevenK, lool: please cross-check http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/karmic/alpha-3/, I updated the desdcription11:38

pittiRiddell: ok, I'm fine with changing the text to "DVD", if that's fine with you for alpha-3?11:40
ograpitti, does devicekit-power still have APM support or did it completely switch to ACPI only ?11:40
seb128evand, in fact I did the gtkbuilder conversion locally but you have a very weird hack which I blocked on11:40

seb128            if isinstance(widget, gtk.Label):11:41

ograpitti, oh, i thought it inly looked in the acpi subpaths11:42
seb128evand, but if gtk does it that's for a reason, ie no need to try to change it by weird hacks in your software, better to be consistent with other applications11:42

maxbIt was a direct upload to Ubuntu, not a sync13:30

maxbA merge would normally still have "ubuntu" in its version string13:32
gesermaxb: probably a glitch from pitti as he's also the debian maintainer for it13:32
mok0maxb, it's an nmu synced from debian afacs13:32

maxbmok0: The changesfile lists the distribution as karmic, so I prefer geser's explanation13:33
maxbAlso, "100.1" isn't a nmu version string13:34
mok0maxb. yeah13:34
mok0maxb: 100 is latest debian release13:34

mok0geser: cron is a legacy package now, right?13:44
hyperairit is? why would it be?13:44
mok0Because anacron is being installed by default13:45
mok0And aren't there discussions about moving to Apple's launchd ?13:45
hyperairdon't they do separate things?13:46
mok0hyperair: afaik launchd is a reimplementation of cron13:46
hyperairis it?13:47
hyperair(i was referring to anacron vs cron)13:47
mok0but with better security and flexibility13:47
ionlaunchd is more than crond.13:47
mok0hyperair: ah13:47
hyperairwhat's wrong with crond?13:47
hyperairand we don't have a launchd package around, do we?13:47
mok0hyperair: I imagine it has something to do with the /etc/cron.d/ directories13:48
hyperairoh yeah, that.13:48
mok0hyperair: so packages can drop files in there13:48
hyperairso how would you secure something of that sort?13:48
hyperairwithout losing the said functionality13:48
* mok0 googles crond vs launchd13:49
pittitseliot: no, I'm afraid not13:49
ionUpstart will implement the cron/at/anacron/whatever functionality in the future. Upstart’s design is better than launchd’s IMO.13:49
pittigeser:, maxb, mok0: it was a bzr head snapshot13:49

glatzormvo,  You can take a look at the new code: lp:~aptdaemon-developers/aptdaemon/gdefer13:54
glatzormvo, I've only converted the GetTrustedVendorKeys method to the new gobject based deferreds13:54
glatzormvo, yet. I am away now for some days! See you.13:55
mok0ion, ah, so it's upstart rather than launchd13:55
ttxdoko: about doublechecking if a MIR is really needed: I was thinking on reviewing package bug history, is there any better way, like some official list of MIR-ed packages ?13:56
mok0ion, oh crond (launchd) capability is _planned_ but not currently in upstart13:58
dokottx: I would just look at Sources from jaunty if the package was in main13:58
ioncrond is still not equal to launchd.13:59
ionIn some areas, Upstart is far beyond launchd in functionality.13:59
ttxdoko: ok, thx13:59
mok0ion, apple uses launchd to replace crond14:00
ionAs well as inetd and initd.14:01
mok0ion, didn't know that14:01
mok0ion, although I am typing this from my Powerbook G4 :-)14:01
hyperairhmm the article said that upstart was to have reached stage #6 by edgy+2, which was gutsy.14:07
hyperairthat's so long ago, and we're not even there yet! =O14:07
mok0From upstart webpage "Events may be received from any other process on the system" -- I hope there's a decent authorization system in place14:07
hyperairwhat kind of events do you want to limit access to?14:10
ionThe usual. If you have write access to init’s UNIX socket or the system bus, you can talk to init.14:12
mok0If a single process controls almost everything, it also gives blackhats more options for making trouble14:14
mok0Just sayin'14:15
* ogra wonders if mok0 is aware of the PID init had since it existed14:15
hyperairi wouldn't say that.14:15
hyperairi think it's more of giving blackhats something to focus on attacking.14:16
hyperairrather than giving them more options14:16
ionInstead of D-Bus handling the access policy, so you have a single chunk of code to audit, every piece of software should NIH its own, so you have to audit all of them?14:16
mvoogra: looks good, just commit14:16
ogramvo, thanks :) not hard to understand the code :)14:16
mok0ion, good point14:18
mok0ion, but the fundamental design better be right14:19
ionFeel free to inspect the fundamental design.14:19
hyperairNIH = ?14:19
mok0ion, I'm not qualified for that14:19
ograhyperair, Not Invented Here14:20
Chipzzion: I think the fundamental design is broken14:20
Chipzzbut that's just my opinion14:20
hyperairbroken how?14:20
mok0ion, just slightly concerned when several very well tested systems get replaced by a single piece of software14:21
mok0ion, NEW software14:21
Chipzzone central daemon that is needed and when breaks, would call huge amounts of havoc14:21
mok0Chipzz: exactly14:21
hyperairthat's the entire purpose of init isn't it?14:21
hyperairif init breaks, you get huge amounts of havoc14:22
mok0hyperair: yes, but will it work?14:22
Chipzzhyperair: and the dbus developers have, IIRC, always had a "Distro's go fuck yourself, dbus isn't designed to be restarted" attitude14:22
Chipzzhyperair: init is a LOT less complex than dbus14:22
mok0hyperair: init has been tested on? hundreds of mililons of systems?14:22
Chipzzand now you need dbus and god knows what just to log in14:22
hyperairmok0: upstart has been ubuntu's init for some time already.14:22
ionUpstart runs just fine without D-Bus. Even handles D-Bus restarts. Also, Upstart has been running on – how many Ubuntu users are there again? – for many releases by now. Oh, and i bet Upstart has a more comprehensive test suite than sysvinit. :-P14:23
Chipzzsounds like looking for things to break14:23
Chipzzion: I'm not criticizing upstart14:23
mok0neither am I14:23
Chipzzmy critique is wrt dbus and the whole santa-boutique of *kits14:23
hyperairupstart isn't about to engulf dbus.14:24
hyperairi don't see the point of comparing upstart with dbug14:24
ionI’m not saying D-Bus doesn’t suck. I’m still quite confident D-Bus won’t let $randomuser get root access from Upstart, which seemed to be the original doubt.14:24
mok0hyperair: ok14:24
ChipzzI think yesterdays breakage cjwatsons, and who elses? don't recall desktop proved my point very nicely14:24
hyperairwhat breakage?14:25
Chipzzpart of ecrypt breaks, and sudo/login get broken14:25
ChipzzBAD DESIGN14:25
hyperairsudo got broken?14:25
hyperairand i have no interest in ecrypt, so i don't really bother with that14:25
Chipzzwhich is why I don't like the whole idea of dbus and the whole bunch of *kits14:25
hyperairi'm more interested to know what went wrong that caused sudo to break.14:26
Chipzzread the backlog or ask someone who can give more detail14:26
hyperairand break in what way14:26
Chipzzno logins possible, sudo segfaults14:26
hyperairi had nothing of that sort.14:26
hyperairat least, my sudo never segfaulted, and i didn't log out for a very long time14:27
* ogra wouldnt call that an encfs design flaw14:27
ograrather a pam one14:27
hyperairoh it's pam eh.14:27
hyperairthat reminds me. someone was complaining about kdesu breaking in #ubuntu-kernel, claiming it to be the fault of the kernel.14:28
pittihyperair: well, a major point of ecryptfs is to hook into the login process, i. e. PAM14:28
ograbut if you can confuse the login process with a broken third party hook thats a flaw in the login system imho14:28
Chipzzpitti: reading the backlog pam wasn't involved in that?14:29
pittiChipzz: sure, ecryptfs ships a pam module which segfaulted14:29
* hyperair uses cryptsetup-on-lvm14:29
pittiit wasn't the pam package itself, of course14:29
Chipzzpitti: then I misunderstood the whole debacle14:29

rickspencer3in terms of pythonic design ... is it proper to have a property that gets a different value than it sets16:41
rickspencer3in this case,  list_of_dicts = couchwidget.selected_rows16:42
rickspencer3couchwidget.selected_rows = list_if_ints16:42
rickspencer3pitti: lool: ^ thoughts?16:42
rickspencer3oops, I said "value", but meant "type"16:43
loolrickspencer3: Hmm I think I'd need more context but that's probably ok as long as it's clear from the comments/inline doc16:51
rickspencer3perhaps selected_rows should be read only ... and select_rows(list_of_ints) would go with it?16:53
dvestalrickspencer3: The logic of doing that makes sense, but I would probably lean more toward using an "indexes" property to set the selection with a list of indexes. that way you have list_of_dicts = couchwidget.selected_rows and couchwidget.selected_row_indexes = list_of_ints. otherwise something like you just mentioned regarding the read-only property and a setter method.16:55
rickspencer3dvestal: hmm16:56
dvestalalthough, doing it with the indexes property would actually require a setter method anyway to be able to modify the other property.16:56
rickspencer3in fact, perhaps couchwidget.selected_indexes could be a read/write property?16:56
dvestalthe read-only property and a setter method may be the best way to do it.16:57
* rickspencer3 nods16:57
rickspencer3or perhaps the whole list_of_ints for indexes is too implementation specific16:58
rickspencer3the developer should rather provide a list of records to select ... the fact that they are displayed in a treeview with a listmodel shouldn't be exposed in the widget api?16:58
dvestalrickspencer3: i don't know that a list of indexes is too specific for a list of items, but that's more dependant on how it's being used. i come from more of a web application background; so i tend to lean toward an index + lightweight textual value for lists and that may not be the most appropriate in all circumstances.17:03

jdstrandogra: it is planned, but only after all the host-based stuff is there18:25
ograits just something i have to deal often with in #ltsp ... so i was wondering18:26
jdstrandogra: specifically filtering by interface (which will be in 0.28) and egress filtering (which will be sometime after that)18:26
jdstrandogra: there is an example of doing NAT in /usr/share/doc/ufw/README.gz under 'Advanced Configuration', and I'm pretty sure help.ubuntu.com also has a recipe18:27
jdstrandogra: ufw can do it (it can do anything iptables-restore can do), it just isn't exposed via the cli command yet18:28
jdstrandogra: and therefore gufw doesn't support it yet18:28
ograright, but after all users currently seem more comfortable with iptables-save and editing /e/n/i18:29
jdstrandogra: whatever someone wants to use to get their work done is fine be me. :) the point I was trying to make is that if you want to use ufw generally, but just want a NAT rule, then you can do that18:31
ograwell, i would prefer to tell users to do "ufw enable nat" "ufw save" :)18:32

keesmaco: ah, then, yes, -security skips -proposed.  only very rarely will a security update go through -proposed.19:32

keesyou need to always base uploads to -proposed on the most recent version in either -updates or -security.19:32
macoi did it against hardy-updates. its the same as hardy-security though19:33
