siretart`Whoopie: IIRC we disabled dv support because vlc needed porting to the new API, or there was some general breakage with dv support. Have you tested that dv actually works?06:05
siretart`Whoopie: in any case, I've pointed xtophe to your patch, he takes a look and will probably apply it for the 1.0.4-1 upload06:06
dtchenmm, I can ditch the "nvidia" driver completely, because "nv" works great in Lucid06:34
bjsniderdtchen, is that a joke?06:42
dtchenabsolutely not06:48
dtchengranted, I don't use anything requiring libGL.so.1, so my particular case is limited06:49
bjsniderthe nv driver is there to provide basic mode-setting so you don't see a black screen the first time you boot linux06:49
bjsniderit's a transitional driver06:49
bjsnidernouveau and nvidia are much better06:50
dtchenI don't much care, frankly; if nv gives me x-terminal-emulators, I'm golden06:50
maco2who needs compositing?06:50

dtchenI do use tmux/screen.06:51
bjsnidermaco, human beings walking around on this earth06:51
bjsniderbut i never mentioned compositing06:52
maco2well thats the point of using nvidia instead of nv, isnt it? because nv is 2D-only. i kinda though nouveau was still rather experimental though06:52
bjsnidernv has no xv or vdpau06:53
bjsniderfont rendering is probably a mess06:53
bjsniderno power management. no support for xrandr 1.206:54
bjsnidernot much of anything06:54
bjsniderof course the blob doesn't support xrandr 1.2 yet either06:54

bjsnidernouveau is foss06:58
maco2yes, his point is he can ditch the binary nvidia driver06:58
bjsniderbut he's not using the best foss driver06:58
maco2he doesnt care which alternative to go to, it just so happens that nv is on his system and works, so he's going with it06:59
bjsniderwas my point06:59
maco2if it works, does it matter?06:59
dtchenI'm sure there are more optimal methods, but I can't be arsed; I'd rather fix this pot of audio bugs.06:59

m4rtinhi all; I submitted a patch for sponsorship review (regression fix) over a month ago and haven't heard anything. Any ideas; core team v. busy? (it's in bash-completion)09:07
persiam4rtin: Which is the bug number?09:08
* persia can't help get it merged, but may be able to help check process compliance09:09
persiabug #44934909:10
ubottuLaunchpad bug 449349 in bash-completion "regression for completing remote files/dirs over ssh" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/44934909:10
persiam4rtin: So, is broken in lucid as well as karmic?09:13
m4rtinpersia: I would assume so... it was broken *in* Karmic, so I wrote a fix which someone then suggested I try to get into lucid09:13
m4rtinIt was owing to a bash version upgrade and the bash_completion script being incompatible09:15
persiam4rtin: So, basically you just want someone to upload the debdiff in comment #45 ?09:15
persia(and then maybe you'll look at karmic, but that's process stuff for later)09:15
m4rtinpersia: #25 I believe... as for Karmic, I was lead to believe that this would not be ported back as an update...? Is that incorrect? I've been using the fix on my Karmic systems with no problems...09:17
persiam4rtin: #25, riht.  Sorry.  Dunno how I imagined the extra 20 comments.09:18
persiaIt looks to me like you've done everything correctly, and are just stuck waiting for a sponsor.09:18
m4rtinpersia: yeah, I thought so - I'll just sit tight09:19
m4rtin(my first patch, so I didn't know what to expect)09:20
persiam4rtin: Yeah.  Sometimes it's slow.  Sorry about that.09:20
m4rtinit also fixes another very irritating issue in the same package that has existed since 8.10 - ssh completion puts far too many \ characters in to escape spaces and thereby makes it useless for completing more than 1 directory - it's all in the changelog though :)09:21
persiam4rtin: On the bright side, it looks like it got confirmed as a regression by the update verification team, which means that it's probably getting a bit more visibility than it would otherwise09:22
persia(but that was a couple weeks ago)09:22
m4rtinpersia: yeah, I saw that; guess they were busy with featuredefinitionfreeze recently, but hey, at some point they'll see it I'm sure09:23

Whoopiesiretart`: I can't upload anything.10:42
maxbwiki/SponsorshipProcess doesn't say much about what needs to appear in a merge-sponsorship-request bug. Should I be describing the changes, or should I assume that the sponsor will prefer to read the diff and debian/changelog anyway, so a brief "please merge this" is ok?10:43
persiaI like to get a quick description of the patch.10:46
persiaSomething like "Here's something that addresses ${issue} for ${release}10:46
persiaJust to have some idea what I'm looking at.10:46
persiaYes, the sponsor will be reading the diff and changelog, but a little advance hint never hurts :)10:46
persiamaxb: Actually, in the specific case of merges, some people like more.10:47
persiaFor instance, some people like to have the imported Debian/changelog entries summarised in the bug (the ones coming from Debian).10:47
persiaThis is less important before Debian Import Freeze, and it would be nice to merge everything.10:48

slytherinRoAkSoAx: any example?12:23
RoAkSoAxslytherin, apgdiff (its been in testing for 4 days :) ) Or, how much does it take to update the list?12:23
slytherinRoAkSoAx: As far as I knew it used to be updated daily. May be that has changed recently.12:24
RoAkSoAxslytherin, prolly its is because they want us to change to distributed development or because the new debian source format12:25
RoAkSoAxs/prolly/probably :)12:26
slytherinAFAIK, MoM has support for new source format.12:26
RoAkSoAxslytherin, yeah but they were doing some tests this past few days in building the packages to see if they can change or not since I think some packages were FTBFS12:27
slytherinRoAkSoAx: Was that related to MoM or Launchpad?12:28
RoAkSoAxslytherin, Launchpad12:28

LaneyI'd repack to remove it then14:31
persiaslytherin: I don't think it matters: the *source* needs to be DFSG free (well UFSG, which is basically DFSG + a couple specific exceptions)14:31
persiaBecause the source is *also* being distributed.14:31
persiaBut send a note to debian-legal explaining the details and your plans, and see what they say.14:31

LaneyRhonda, persia: Yeah, I'm just the messenger14:42

mterrypersia, they did that to not invalidate old signatures, under the theory that the changes were not substantive14:43
persiaLaney: Understood.  We just kinda hoped you had a larger message :)14:43
LaneyRhonda: So if people agreed to the older version then LP considers that they agree to 1.114:43
persiaUm, the changes are substantive enough that we've an *active* developer (Rhonda) who has been waiting for them for almost two years.14:43
RhondaLaney: And that for the page has to lie about the release date of the 1.1 version?14:43
ubottuUbuntu bug 479870 in launchpad-registry "Need to support Ubuntu CoC 1.1" [Low,Fix released]14:43
LaneyRhonda: That's because LP compares the date released to the date signed to see which versions of the CoC you have agreed to14:44
persiaOh, so it's an implementation trick.14:44
Laney...so they couldn't update the date released without expiring all old sigs14:44

Emanemplus I'm using a simple Makefile to build my project, don't want to include the ./configure etc etc17:52
geserEmanem: how can I be sure that the binary you build matches the source?17:53
wrapsterhi all.. when i dist upgrade is done this is the error I get... http://pastie.org/74746617:54
wrapsterits not ubuntu ... but related to packaging so asking here...17:54
wrapstercould anyone please help me understand what this means and about any ideas as to how i can resolve it?17:54
Emanempersia , geser : I don't think honestly, I'll provide the sources with GPLv3, so people will be able to rebuild themselves. Packages are only for people which don't want to rebuild it17:55
Emanemthat's why I want to include an executable17:55
persiaEmanem: See, you create a source package, and you have it built, and users can get the binaries.17:55
EmanemI'm getting this error btw: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=135647117:56
persiaWe just don't have any good tools for assembling binary packages directly.17:56
Emanemsorry but doesn't the deb format rely on ar ?17:56
EmanemI don't understand this then... how can people like Skype provide proper packages?17:57
geserEmanem: and an user can also use the source package if he needs to modify your program (e.g. apply a patch, build with newer libs, etc.) to build a new deb17:57
Emanemgeser :  the program will be released under gplv3, so they'll be free to do whatever they want :)17:58
Emanemthe point is, there must be a proper guide/howto to explain the format/which tools/programs are used to create proper packages17:58
geserEmanem: sure, but without a source package it harder to them to build an updated deb (or do you ship a script to hand-build a deb?)17:58
Emanemgeser: latter could be... but even not, the program is simple17:59
persiaOr better stated: it's harder for *you* to build a binary package.17:59
Emanemso, what am I doing wrong? the error I'm having when I try to install the deb is : dpkg-deb: file `/home/ema/TEST/packages/TEST-0.2_amd64.deb' is not a debian binary archive (try dpkg-split?)18:00
geserEmanem: Skype probably use a source package too, they just skip the compilation during the package building and install the pre-built binaries18:00
geserEmanem: how did you assemble the deb? (the last step)18:01
persiaI thought Skype used a source package and just didn't share the source.18:01
Emanemgeser: "ar -r mypackage-2.0_amd64.deb control.tar.gz data.tar.gz debian-binary"18:02
geserpersia: I don't know, I just assumed18:03
persiaEmanem: We're not really prepared to help you do it that way.  None of us do it that way.18:03
EmanemSorry guys, but can you please point me to the script that is assembling the last step? I fear that I have to manually modify the "archived" (ar -r) file18:04
geserEmanem: although debs are 'ar' archives, dpkg doesn't like all (don't know the details)18:05
Emanemand how are these created? which tool?18:05
persiaWe use debuild or dpkg-buildpackage on source packages to generate binary package.18:06
persiaSo we really don't know the manual process.18:06
persia(or we use sbuild or pdebuild or upload to some archive)18:07
Emanemsorry but there must be some sort of tools used to produce proper deb if ar can't be used...18:07
geserin the end dpkg-deb creates the deb, but as persia said, without a reason nobody looks at the low-level steps to build a packages18:08
persiaEmanem: You really will find your life easier if you just create a few files in debian/ in your source and run debuild.18:09
persiaIt's not a clean package, but it's easier than trying to create binary packages manually.18:09
Emanempersia: what is debian/ ? maybe I'm missing that bit18:10
ubottuThe packaging guide is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages for information on getting a package integrated into Ubuntu - Other developer resources are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment - See also !backports18:10
persiaEmanem: Take a look at our packaging guide.18:10
persiaBasically, to create a package, unpack your source tarball, create a debian/ directory, add copyright, changelog, control, compat, and rules, and build.18:11
persia(it can get more complex, but that's the high-level overview)18:11
Emanemubottu: the guide is broken18:11
Emanempersia: do you know where can I find the online sources of dpkg-buildpackage so I can look them myself?18:14
Emanem(I'm tempted to release the 2 binaries without any deb package...and btw this is why devs have hard time doing these things... how comes that one has to use 3/4 scripts to basically create an archive file (deb)?)18:16
persiaapt-get source dpkg-dev18:16
geserEmanem: http://git.debian.org/?p=dpkg/dpkg.git18:16
Emanemthanks geser18:16

EmanemThe error I get is thrown here: http://git.debian.org/?p=dpkg/dpkg.git;a=blob;f=dpkg-deb/extract.c;h=cd8332282f6261903af6d62d4fad3667a1931474;hb=HEAD#l14718:19
EmanemLOL found out the error18:21
Emanemdpkg expects the first file of the archive to be debian-binary... omg...18:22
Emanemso even order matters...18:22
Emanemwell now I'm getting another error... I guess I'll source-debug dpkg and eventually find out all the issues and fix them...18:24
Emanemthanks guys for the dpkg sources18:24

persiaEmanem: You really might have an easier time with a source package :)18:25
Emanempersia: I'm more a software dev/computer scientist and actually when something doesn't properly work I really enjoy dig, understand and (possibly) fix18:26
Emanemthanks for suggestions anyway :)18:26
Emanempersia, geser: YESSS! I did it! :-)18:30

ubottuLaunchpad bug 488507 in azureus "version upgrade to 4.3 required - HD network no longer working in current version" [Undecided,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/48850718:34
Emanempersia, geser: One last question: are the following libraries [libstdc++.so.6 , libm.so.6, libgcc_s.so.1, libpthread.so.0 ] installed by default on every Ubuntu system, am I correct? I guess nothing would run without those...18:34
ScottKblackxored: Generally SRU should be a patch targetted to solve a specific problem.  You should probably discuss it with someone in ubuntu-sru.  IIRC jdong is both on ubuntu-sru and familiar with azureus.18:37
blackxoredScottK, thanks18:37
geserEmanem: you can assume that. they are so low in the dependency chain, that nothing is left if you try to remove them18:37
Emanemgeser: I definitely would imagine that after 10+ years c/c++, but you know, better double check than have bad surprises...18:38
geseryou might need to check if you need special symbols that only appear since a specific version18:40
awelool, james_w: do either of you guys know what the deal is with merge-o-matic ( merges.ubuntu.com )?  is it supposed to be up-to-date?18:42
james_wI think it keeps falling over18:42
aweI did a merge two weeks ago for gst-plugins-bad, and it hasn't updated...18:43
geserlast I heard MoM still doesn't like format 3.0 packages (even with the backported dpkg), don't know if it got fixed18:45
tombeeAre there any opportunities to get involved with security programming in Ubuntu? :)20:04
keestombee: sure thing.  see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam20:06
tombeeWow great, thanks kees20:06
keesnp.  we hang out in #ubuntu-hardened  (redirected from #ubuntu-security)  see the bottom of that page for the GettingInvolved link20:06
tombeeThe thing is I'm not that experienced in software security, but it's something I'd like to gain experience in and educate myself in :)20:07
tombeeSo I'm not sure how I would go about 'getting started'20:08
tombeekees: the roadmap looks good though :)20:11
RhondaI wonder… I merged multiple accounts into my rhonda account. With that came various mail addresses. If I remove those addresses, will the merge be undone, or would that only affect future stuff that would get imported with those addresses?21:48
geserI guess you need to ask in #launchpad to get an answer (or even file a question)21:51
persiaRhonda: I'd recommend just hiding the addresses, unless there's some special reason to forcibly remove them.21:55
RhondaYeah, they are hidden anyway.21:55
Rhondageser: Oh, right. Always forget about that special-purpose channel. Sorry. %-/21:56
* wgrant is concerned that it's "special-purpose", and not for a different product, as is reality.21:59
