DarxusWhat initiates file signing during debuild?  It's not doing the signing of the .dsc file.01:58
DarxusI tried doing it manually, but the sha1 checksum is apparently somehow different than that generated by the command of the same name.01:59
DarxusOh, interesting, there are two checksums.02:01
DarxusWow, I actually got all the checksums recalculated, and both the .changes and .dsc resigned properly so dput is uploading.02:09

DarxusHuh, one of the architectures built.  The other two are still going.03:47
DarxusWomble2: I'm not finding references to debsign in this package.03:52
DarxusMy debdiff includes several files I didn't touch.  Almost certainly because they're automatically generated, but not removed by debian/rules clean.  Can I add rming them to debian/rules clean?  Open a bug for it?03:55

dhon_I'm trying to build a more recent ftdi_sio driver on 8.04 but I'm having troubles04:36
dhon_cc1: error: /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build/include/linux/modversions.h: No such file or directory04:36
dhon_that's the first of many errors04:37
dhon_linux headers are installed04:37
dhon_and the build alias seems to be ok: /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build -> /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-19-generic04:38
dhon_is it likely that this version of the driver requires a more modern kernel?04:39
DarxusWhat do the driver docs say?04:39
dhon_the package I downloaded only contains ftdi_sio.c, ftdi_sio.h, Makefile and Rules.mak04:45
dhon_I can't see a reference to min kernel version in those file04:45
dhon_I should mention that this is a g-OS netbook, which is based on 8.04 - but I'm not sure if it's exactly the same04:47
DarxusIt's entirely possible that the kernel and driver are incompatible versions.  I wouldn't assume which one is too new / old.04:49
dhon_a page I've found suggest that the kernel headers are not configured04:55
dhon_is there a way to acquire the config for the current kernel? I thought it would be in /proc/config but it's not there05:02
dhon_nor is it in the linux-source package05:03
hyperair/boot/config-`uname -r`05:03
dhon_ah, perhaps apt-get source linux-image-generic?05:04
dhon_ah ok thanks05:04
hyperairall the make-kpkg'd kernels put their configs there as wel05:05
dhon_so I just copy this to /usr/src/`uname -r`/.config05:06
dhon_err sorry, to the headers directory?05:06
Darxusdhon_: The .config in the linux-image package source is built from... several pieces.05:07
DarxusThere's a main pice, then a piece for each architecture, then a piece for each flavor, and you cat them together.05:07
DarxusBut getting it out of /boot/ is better :)05:07
dhon_:) thanks05:08
dhon_good to know05:08
dhon_ok, so I have the config file, but I'm still not sure how to create modversions.h from the kernel headers?05:15
dhon_it sounds like this might be a driver for 2.4, not 2.605:19
dhon_modversions.h no longer exists in 2.6?05:20
Womble22.6 has Modules.symver05:20
Womble2or even Module.symvers...05:21
dhon_the ftdi page states that ftdi_sio is in the mainline kernel now, so is it likely that a driver from 2.6.31 (say) would compile on 2.6.24 or is this a bad idea?05:21
Womble2depends on how much its driver class (net, serial, ...) has changed05:22
dhon_I'm not even sure if the driver is the problem - I'm getting IOErrors from pyserial when reading from a USB/RS485 adapter05:25
dhon_it seems to only happen under heavy load, but then occurs on every successive read05:26
dhon_so I was thinking it may be related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/+source/linux/+bug/37612805:27

DarxusI watched dkms rebuild that module, how would it have a different symbol version?06:05

dhon_the usb_serial structs have changed07:24

smbapw, you proy mean acpid13:15
apwits that or hald, if you think its acpid, then we agree :)13:15

apwsmb, your tester has woken up on that one13:15
smbby now most drivers have input drivers, so maybe it is what is left of hald ...13:16
* smb goes having a look13:16
smbapw, I would suspect acpid in that case13:17
apwyep asked him to test without acpid, so we can see if its to blame there13:17
smbHe reported some things visible when doing acpi_listen13:17
apwyeah thats what i thought13:18
smbCould we have a remnants of that handling left? and b) why did the module not load13:18
smbI check the acpi ids and there seemed to be one match13:18
* smb wonders what that last update did to his netbook. ssd busy, back to the login screen, no mouse...13:20
apwsmb, one assume it didn't load cause its not listed in the module aliases13:31
apwif it did match then we need to get the dmesg to see13:31
smbapw, Its sort of a special acpi alias (the dmesg shows nothing (the normal one))13:32
smbI double verify to see the id in the acpidump13:32
smband then need to look how that match might b made13:33
smbapw, So from the dsdt: "Device (HKEY) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("MAT0019"))..." and from modinfo panasonic_laptop: "alias:          acpi*:MAT0019:*"13:41
apwthat is odd indeed13:42
apwsmb, udev log might tell us yes?13:42
smbThe basic question would be, does having that Id in acpi generate an event?13:43
smbapw, Looking into /sys/bus/acpi should tell I guess13:45
smbapw, /sys/bus/acpi/devices actually13:45
smbapw, Ok, I guess I have some reasonable questions posted to proceed13:56

slytherinapw: Can that DVD issue be anyway related to DMA? I see lot of 'link is slow to respond', not sure what that means. And not sure why it comes with only region coded disks.15:55
apwslytherin, the first thing that occurs is that the drive is reported frozen it seems15:55
apwthen we get annoyed and reset it and then it occurs agian ...15:55
apwso i'd say it looks like the drive is going away when we do the 'what you got in there then' call15:56
slytherinhmm, so might be related to drive status reporting, right?15:56
apwi assume when you say the drive is region 5 that the disks are the same region15:56
apwslytherin, very hard to say ... all i can see if it dissappearing off the bus15:56
apwthats not a very nice thing for it to do15:56
slytherinapw: yes. some of the disks are same region, but the problem appears irrespective of the region. Anyway I will try latest kernel and jaunty kernel.15:57
