Anzenkethmicahg: I just got a notice from the wiki. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/FindRightPackage?action=diff&rev1=98&rev2=99 I am a bit unclear on the mirrors change.01:15
hggdhAnzenketh: what is your doubt?01:19
micahgAnzenketh: it seems that someone jsut added that mirror issues shouldn't be field on LP01:19
AnzenkethMy question is more of what does that include.01:19
AnzenkethI figured it included questions like this .deb file is missing01:20
AnzenkethBut what about this package should also include this by default.01:20
* hggdh is now confuse01:21
hggdher. which package are you talking about?01:21
AnzenkethIt was more of a general question01:22
hggdhthe usual problems with mirrors are: they are offline; they are not up-to-date; they are partially up-to-date (and keep partially UTD)01:23
micahgAnzenketh: my guess would be the 403/404 errors that are commonly reported against update-manager01:23
hggdhoh, I see. You mean something like "this mirror does not include multiverse, and it should"01:23
AnzenkethNo more something like I was installing package X and it states it requires package Y can we get that .deb file updated.01:24
micahglike bug 36718301:24

micahgoh, maybe bad example...01:24
Anzenkethmicahg: I got that part I was just wondering if it included anything else besides that.01:24
AnzenkethBesides the HTTP errors you get.01:25
micahgAnzenketh: if it's in the repo and just not mirrored yet, yet01:25

micahgalso, reporter is a dev, so that makes me even more reluctant01:52
micahgAnzenketh: you may be 100% right though01:52

anzenkethubuntu-bugs does not send messages you might be subscribed to a team that does04:02
kermiacanzenketh: no, I actually mean should I unsubscribe the ubuntu bugs team in order to avoid a lot of bugmail spam to the ubuntu bugs mailing list. Most (maybe even all) bug control members are subscribed to that ML & 450569 is a VERY active bug report atm which would mean the ubuntu bugs ML would get a lot of bugmail spam in relation to that bug report04:07
ddecatordang that report has a lot of duplicates...04:09
kermiacyeah, the oo updates from a couple of days ago caused a lot of users to have issues04:09
kermiacnothing really wrong with the updates themselves though04:10
ddecatorkermiac, i would guess that, if the report started spamming too much, a more senior -control member would change that subscription, but a lot of people subscribed to that list might want the updates for various reasons04:10
kermiaci didn't have the issue, but my boss did as he forgot to close the oo quickstart thing04:11

ddecatoror rather, if a person has a problem with gnome-panel in karmic, but not in lucid, does that follow the same guidelines as an "unknown fix"?05:11
vishddecator: whats the doubt?  the desktop team usually marks those bugs as fix released05:24
vishif an unknown fix by an update == fix released...05:24
vishif the user reports back as it is not reproducible without and update == invalid05:25
vishwithout an*05:25
vishddecator: thats what the desktop team uses as a guideline^05:25
ddecatorvish, the reporter and i have not been able to figure the exact cause of the bug, so we don't know if there was a specific fix for the problem. i thought the general guideline was that "unknown fixes" were marked invalid and only fixes that have a known cause and were specifically addressed are "fix released"05:26
vishddecator: yes , the wiki and the responses are to mark it as "invalid" , but if the user mentions fixed by update , it is "fix released"  thats the desktop team's guidelines ;)05:28

vishif i start gnome-keyring gdb from terminal in session , i cant get back into session without killing gnome-keyring in vt07:42
persiaOK.  Easy way to handle that is to use a VC, export DISPLAY and run gdb from there.  Ctrl-Alt-f1 ought get you around it.07:43
persiaThe alternative is to use SSH.07:43
persiaIf you don't have multiple machines, you can usually get a virtual machine running, install an ssh server in the virtual machine, and ssh from the host into the client to achieve this.07:43
vishhmm , i dont have a second sys to do ssh.. rather i have to setup my other winblows system to do it07:43
persia(whether Ctrl-Alt-F# works depends on how effective the grab is, but it *ought* work )07:44
persiavish: Just run a virtual environment then.07:44
* persia finds virt-manager fairly easy to use for this07:44
* vish tries to find out more about virt-manager 07:45
vishpersia: micahg: this is my main bug > https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=610678 , I'v narrowed it down , it happens only in auto logins and does not if password is entered anywhere else other than the policykit dialogue07:45

micahgddecator: I think it's more up to the individual to decide07:51
ddecatormicahg, ah, so it's more of just a "when you feel ready" kind of a thing?07:52
micahgddecator: I think so07:52
ddecatormicahg, thanks, i just didn't know if there were any requirements outside of what is on the wiki07:53
persiavish: Looking at that bug, I think you do need to run gdb in ssh, as it seems to be a more effective grab than is usually seen.  Setting up a virtual install is likely easier than fiddling with cross-platform ssh (although your experience may differ from mine).07:54

persiaddecator: The trick is to read backscroll in #ubuntu-bugs and #ubuntu-devel for 5 years.  Lots of classes of issues are raised, and lots of discussions happen.  I try to remember :)08:01
persia(No, it's not worth reading all the backscroll now, but if one watches over time, one gets a better and better understanding )08:01

ddecatormicahg does08:31
SoftwareExplorerZus: I do08:31
persiaFor most packages in Ubuntu, there isn't a maintainer, so it's less useful.  Sending email to our mailing list asking for comments on the idea is better, as it means you don't have to figure it out, but rather any person or team who already manages that class of bugs might say something directly.08:32
ZusSoftwareExplorer:  do you are type field get hidden behind the rest of the  window?08:32

Zusill file this one tomorrow its already 4 am....09:01
ZusI began reading the links you gve me  ddecator09:02
ddecatorSoftwareExplorer, just one thing. does bug 433654 accurately describe the problem you're experiencing?09:02
ubot4Launchpad bug 433654 in pulseaudio (Ubuntu) "[Karmic] Only one user has sound; no hw shows in Sound Preferences (affects: 23) (dups: 1)" [Medium,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/43365409:02
ddecatorZus, good, that's the best place to start =)09:02
SoftwareExplorerddecator: Sounds pretty close from the description, I'll look at it09:03
Zusyou know I wonder, how often  and who else  has downloaded the same theme from gnomelook.-org?09:04
ZusI can just delete all themese except the default and  be  fine..09:05
Zusin that sense  would the be a bug? if it's a theme maybe the themer didn't  build it right or09:05
ddecatorZus, that's the hard part about being able to theme with third-party themes...they may work, and they allow more personalization, but they aren't always properly maintained as Ubuntu updates and changes09:06
Zusthat's why I try to get the  80% or higher themes with good reviews  lol09:07
ZusI ll add this in cus  it isn't working with clrae looks either09:08
ddecatorZus, just make sure to check if it has been reported already =)09:09
Zuskeep from filling out a duplicate?09:09
ddecatorZus, yes, if possible. saves us time =)09:16
ddecatorSoftwareExplorer, have you looked at that report?09:16
SoftwareExplorerddecator: Yes. It looks like the same thing. I'll make my bug a duplicate of it.09:17
ddecatorSoftwareExplorer, alright, i was gonna, but go ahead =)09:17
SoftwareExplorerJust out of curiosity, what should a person do if a program crashes and apport comes up. They go to report it and find a duplicate bug. Should they make their own bug and mark it as a duplicate so that apport uploads the crash info?09:19
=== pascalFR is now known as Parti
ddecatorSoftwareExplorer, i haven't had an apport crash in a while, but i believe apport looks for similar bugs and lets the user select if it has been reported, then the crash report gets added to that bug report instead of a new one being created09:20
SoftwareExplorerddecator: I have tried that, but as far as I can tell, it just offers to subscribe you to the bug or mark it as affecting you, but examining the bug later you don't see anything that apport added.09:21
ddecatorSoftwareExplorer, it might not add the info so there isn't 20 people all adding nearly-identical crash reports09:21
SoftwareExplorerddecator: I see.09:23
persiaIf the bug is already reported, there's little point to reuploading stuff.  That said, I'm not at all convinced that most users have any chance of determining if two bugs are duplicates, and think apport should always open new bugs (and then we can compare the stacktraces, etc.)09:23
ddecatorpersia, yah, i agree. although it is nice for those of us who know what to look for09:24
* SoftwareExplorer is heading to bed, it's 1:30 here09:25
ddecatorcya SoftwareExplorer09:25
persiaddecator: I guess.  I'm not convinced that enough thought has been put into a good model for issue reporting, and while the compromise we have works, I'm not comfortable saying that any feature is especially good because I don't think there's any feature that I wouldn't be willing to drop if there was a better model (although I argue a lot about specific changes when a better model has not been presented)09:27
ddecatorpersia, well arguing for changes before something better is available may eventually lead to the current model being improved, you never know, haha09:29
persiaddecator: I'm thinking about a more fundamental level.  I'm not convinced there's a separation between a support request and a bug: any support request indicates that something is wrong in the presented user experience.  I'm not convinced that users (including myself) are capable of knowing if a bug is a duplicate, regardless of the level of investigation.  There are other fundamental questions.09:33
persiaI'll happily express my preferences for how to change current tools to better match my personal preferred working habits.  I just won't say that I'm necessarily making them better in this area.09:33
ddecatorpersia, good point. i did notice that the Answers section seems to be filled with reports that, while being support requests, could easily be seen as bugs as well since something didn't seem to work like the user expected, and ultimately the goal should be to have the computer work for the user, not the user work for the computer09:35
persiaI'm not sure I agree.  I think there's a symbiotic relationship.09:36
persiaBut yes, you see my point :)09:36
ddecatoryah, i don't want to sound too much like apple, haha, but you see what i mean09:36
ddecatoralright, as much as i would love to get into a discussion about the philosophy of computers, it's late, so i'm off to bed. night all09:55
