verbalshadowhow do you debug a x crash that causes a hardlock and you can't get a backtrace even with when you remote in02:06
verbalshadowif the crash the machine can't even accept new ssh connections02:07
verbalshadows/if /and02:07
RAOFverbalshadow: You can try mounting the root filesystem with the “sync” flag; that'll probably slow disc i/o substantially, but should ensure that (almost) all of the log files get written out to disc before it dies.02:07
RAOFYou can also try netconsole, to send dmesg out over the network to another machine.02:09
verbalshadowRAOF: thanks do i just add sync to the boot command ??02:11
RAOFI think you'd want to edit /etc/fstab02:12
verbalshadowok, i wish i could figure out what the hell is wrong it is killing me02:17
bryycetjaalton, are your xorg (1:7.5+1ubuntu1) changes in git?11:45
tjaaltonbryyce: uh, seems not12:00
tjaaltonbryyce: I can fix the changelog version when I push12:01
tjaaltonalso will add wacom back to -input-all12:01
tjaaltonbryyce: do you want to release it too?12:02
AlanBellmorning all12:48
AlanBellI am wondering if there is anything I can do to assist with progress on bug 42876912:49
ubottuLaunchpad bug 428769 in xserver-xorg-video-intel "compiz starts with a blank screen on a 2048x1152 monitor" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/42876912:49
AlanBellany further information I can add, or point me in the direction of the code responsible and I will have a poke about and see what I can find12:49
AlanBellthe issue occurs with Lucid Alpha 212:50
AlanBellcompiz works perfectly on the same hardware in Jaunty12:50
tseliotsuperm1: it looks like more transitional packages will be needed: bug #51039015:51
ubottuLaunchpad bug 510390 in nvidia-graphics-drivers "broken alternatives broke vdpau in mplayer" [Medium,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/51039015:51
tseliotyou're gonna love it :-P15:51
apwbryyce, about?16:48
superm1tseliot, i'm not convinced16:55
superm1does mplayer build-dep on libvdpau?16:56
superm1(eg does it do it right..)16:56
superm1i can double check tonight if a fresh install has the same problem with mythtv16:56
superm1which does have a proper build-dep on libvdpau16:56
tseliotsuperm1: that would be welcome16:56
tseliotI guess it built against the old (nvidia?) libvdpau16:57
superm1tseliot, for now, i think just a C/R on that 185 package should be sufficient for upgraders though, no?16:57
superm1looking over https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mplayer/+changelog i'd agree with that16:58
bjsniderthat old mplayer has an ancient vdpau in it16:59
bjsniderit does not play well with the newer libvdpau16:59
superm1okay so lets get that fixed before we get any new transitional packages in place16:59
bjsnideri'm sure reinhard has it in mind to refresh it16:59
superm1bjsnider, do you by chance have a patch for it that you might share with siretart?16:59
bjsniderhe had to fix that stupid ffmpeg problem first though17:00
tseliotsuperm1: this is exactly why I pinged you before doing any actual work17:00
bjsnidersuperm1, i just used reinhard's update command from the debian scripts17:00
superm1bjsnider, the ffmpeg problems should be fixed now i think17:01
bjsniderso my version is newer out of svn or whatever it is. may e git. i don't remember17:01
bjsnideryeah that's good, so everything should be refreshed, all of the encoding libs like theora, x264 etc. and vlc and mplayer17:01
tseliotsuperm1, bjsnider: can you add a comment in bug #51039017:02
ubottuLaunchpad bug 510390 in nvidia-graphics-drivers "broken alternatives broke vdpau in mplayer" [Medium,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/51039017:02
tseliotso as to explain what's required17:02
bjsniderwhy does it say fix released?17:02
tseliotbjsnider: because there was a bug17:03
tseliotmaybe we should open a different bug report17:03
tseliotthe bug was the lack of libvdpau.so in /usr/lib/17:03
tseliotwhich is no longer the case17:03
bjsnidermy ppa still has that newer mplayer from a few months ago. if someone wants to try it they're welcome.17:04
bjsniderbut i don't use lucid17:04
bjsnideri could ask somebody in +1 i guess17:04
bjsnidertseliot, is the nvidia vdpau lib now int he same place as it always was?17:05
tseliotbjsnider: it's compliant with what Nvidia explained in bug #43217217:07
ubottuLaunchpad bug 432172 in nvidia-graphics-drivers "nvidia-180-libvdpau packages both libvdpau and libvdpau_nvidia" [Medium,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/43217217:07
bjsniderwait a minute. how could fta have both nvidia-current and the 185 libvdpau package both installed? they contain the same files. so obviously the locations must have changed17:10
bjsnidermplayer needs to be refreshed so that it finds the new location and that old package has to be forced out17:10
bjsniderin my view17:10
tseliotright but the links will make it work17:12
tseliotno doubt on the fact that mplayer needs to be rebuilt against the new vdpau17:12
Q-FUNKon Lucid, since a few days, I seem to have a situation where pressing ALT+F* makes the system switch to a vcons, instead of calling whatever shortcut the desktop has defined.17:15
Q-FUNKhas the kernel and/or X server suddenly changed from CTRL+ALT+F* to ALT+F* to change vcons?17:15
tseliotmaybe gnome did?17:16
Q-FUNKtseliot: gnome still has its shortcuts as before.  as son as I return from whichever vcons I was sent to, the correct gnome action took place and is waiting for me to interact.17:22
tseliottjaalton: ^^17:23
superm1bjsnider, okay well i filed a bug in debian to get mplayer patched to stop hacking it's own vdpau support in17:41
superm1are there any other packages yo uknow that do this?17:42
superm1ffmpeg should be fixed now17:42
bjsniderwhat i meant by the notion that there are problems witht hat build vis a vis vdpau is that there are playback bugs and things that were fixed in 200817:43
bjsnidernot that it couldn't find the vdpau libs or drivers17:43
