mathiazkees: I'd like to develop a script that gives the list of promotion to main needed to pull a package in main01:34
anon^_^that's what the SVN is largely based on01:34
mathiazkees: ie: promoto-to-main condor -> returns the list of other source packages that would be required to promote to main as well01:35
anon^_^I wrote some instructions up how to compile from SVN around six months ago, in the answer section on launchpad01:35
mathiazkees: do you have an idea of how to do that?01:35
anon^_^it seems someone from UDT read the direction on how to compile, but didn't read that the SVN build is not really usable01:35
anon^_^the SVN build is what is currently available in the lucid and meerkat repository01:35

Damascenehi persia,01:54
Damascenehe just added some comments on that bug I want to discuss with him01:54
Damascenewe have a long discussion about it yesterday01:55
nxvlthe comment was basically the summary of what we talked last night (or around 20 hours ago whatever that was in your tz)01:57
nxvlpersia: not it doesn't01:57
Damasceneit's actually enough to provide txt file with the links for 401:58
Damasceneno need to write special script that will work on windows too01:59
nxvlfrom no need to will be cool is a difference :D01:59
nxvlalso will be kind of hard to generate a list of downloadable packages, since you have lots of mirrors02:00
nxvlalso maco's idea was good, generate a state of the system file, then get with that to an online machine and get the updates, so you only have one trip to the internet02:01
DamasceneI know it's good.02:03
DamasceneI just thought the last comment made it look harder to implement02:03
nxvlnope it doesn't02:04

=== dendrobates is now known as dendro-afk
Damascenegives you the update links02:04
Damasceneif you download them and put them in the place you might be able to start with something02:05
Damascenebut the naming is different than the thing in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/02:05
keesmathiaz: sure.  you'd just recursively examine all Depends: lines02:05
mathiazkees: and recommends as well02:06
keesmathiaz: right, yeah.  which element were you curious about?02:06
mathiazkees: well - basically I want to find out how much would be required to promote condor to main02:07
mathiazkees: in the past we've been burned a couple of times with dependencies not being MIRed when the promotion was done02:07
mathiazkees: so I'd like to have a reliable way to figure out *every* source package that will be promoted to main to get one source package as well02:08
Damascenenxvl, does the apt-get update store things in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ or were02:08
mathiazkees: so I'd like to have a reliable way to figure out *every* source package that would need to be promoted to main given one source package02:08
keesmathiaz: there isn't a perfect way to do with due to alternates.  i.e  Depends: pkg1 | pkg202:08
keesmathiaz: but if you just throw away alternates, you can probably get pretty close.02:09
mathiazkees: right - do you know of a script that does such a thing?02:09
keesmathiaz: nope02:09
mathiazkees: if not, would you recommend starting in python or bash?02:09
mathiazkees: it seems that python-apt doesn't have every info required02:09
keesmathiaz: what's missing?02:10
persiaCan't apt-rdepends do both forward- and reverse- analysis to address this issue?02:10
mathiazkees: let me try again in ipython02:10
keespersia: yeah, but it's dumb about conflicts, recommends, etc02:10
keesmathiaz: I've found doing it by hand to be much simpler.02:10
keesmathiaz: if you get to like 4 things not already in main, it's a good case to discourge putting it in main.  ;)02:11
mathiazkees: :)02:11
mathiazkees: well - that doesn't help in giving an estimate on what needs to be done ;)02:11
keesmathiaz: for each of the pkg1 | pkg2 bits, you probably want to check each one for them being in main first, and then if non found, recurse through pkg1.02:11
persiaapt-get --dry-run --print-uris install ${PACKAGE} | grep universe might be a quick way to get a list (dunno how robust it would be)02:11
keesmathiaz: right.  :)02:12
mathiazpersia: hm - that's a quick hack :)02:12
mathiazpersia: how about build-dependencies?02:12
mathiazpersia: s/install/build-dep/ ?02:12

mathiazpersia: hm - universe/main is not available in the output02:15
mathiazpersia: http://paste.ubuntu.com/427334/02:16
nxvlmathiaz: i remember i did that in barcelona for the remove sudo from the system02:16
nxvlor something like that02:16
nxvlkees: did you remember?02:16
persiamathiaz: Seems --dry-run and --print-uris don't play nice together.02:17
nxvloh! no, i generated a list of packages that depended on sudo02:17
mathiazpersia: right - I've removed --dry-run - works good02:18
mathiazpersia: now I just need to iterate on the list02:18
persiamathiaz: I had to use -y for my test.  Remember *not* to use sudo :)02:18
mathiazpersia: :) - I'm testing in schroot using lvm snapshots02:19
persiamathiaz: So old school.  aufs-schroots are the new rage :)02:19
mathiazpersia: and --print-uris seems to induce dry-run02:19
mathiazkees: ^^ have you heard that - lvm is sooo 200902:19
persiaIt doesn't.  --print-uris expects you to go download stuff separately.  I suspect --dry-run skips the actual deb fetch, and --print-uris is hooked into that to print the URI rather than fetching it.02:20
keespersia: can do --download-only02:20
keesmathiaz: yup, aufs is the new hotness02:20
persiakees: For which?02:20
keespersia: for the --print-uris instead of --dry-run02:20
persiaOh, nifty.02:21
mathiazAnd I can get the source package from the pool url02:21

ccheneyYokoZar: not sure how to do it but afaik you can override anything in CDBS04:07
ccheneyYokoZar: i haven't used CDBS in so long I have forgotten how to do it04:07
ajmitchprobably one of the rules in /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/makefile.mk04:07
YokoZarccheney: I checked the documentation and they have special override flags for configure and clean and install but not make :(04:07
ajmitchYokoZar: tried DEB_BUILD_MAKE_TARGET ?04:08
ajmitchsorry, it's meant to be DEB_MAKE_BUILD_TARGET04:08
YokoZarajmitch: no I hadn't tried that, didn't see that in the docs04:08
StevenKLike CDBS has docs.04:08
ajmitchYokoZar: the source is the best documentation for cdbs04:08
ccheneyyep rtsl :)04:09
YokoZarFair enough, I'll give it a go04:10
persiaNote that reading CDBS source may well make one think it's safe to use the undocumented internal interfaces: do *try* to use the documentation first, so that you don't have to redo it when CDBS changes (which does happen)04:10
ajmitchpersia: the problem is knowing what's safe & what's not04:11
persiaajmitch: I believe only that in the documentation is safe, although the rest may be more or less stable.04:12
ccheneyreading cdbs may also cause you to decide to use debhelper directly instead, this is a good thing ;-)04:12
persiaWell, with newer debhelper, sure.  With older debhelper, I'm not sure I'd have agreed with that.04:13
YokoZarccheney: Yes, debhelper is my favorite here, but editing a cdbs package generally means using cdbs still ;)04:13
ccheneycdbs in general used to at least be very broken04:14
ccheneyi seem to recall it having issues with rebuilding at times when it shouldn't have04:14
ccheneyYokoZar: yea :)04:14
ccheneymy experience with cdbs internals ended in late 2004 so is quite a bit out of date04:14
xnoxcdbs iterates over all packages wasting time. And it has *way* to many targets for a regular package & package-common04:15
xnoxsomethings are nice, most things are just too: "we are make wizards we can make do anything"04:15
ccheneyxnox: for very simple packages the wasted time is probably fairly trivial, but probably not for something large like OOo04:16
xnox      dh $@04:16
ccheneyi think i saw some of the issues when using cdbs for kde04:16
xnoxccheney, they did create dh_* addons for their needs04:17

slytherinAuto login does not unlock the default keyring. Is it intentional?05:46
ScottKI think so.05:53
RAOFslytherin: It *can't* unlock the default keyring, unless that keyring has no password.05:53
slytherinRAOF: This is a problem then because default keyring stores even wireless keys. So user can not connect automatically to wireless connection if he chooses auto login.05:54
slytherinIn that sense using auto login is a loss of functionality.05:54
RAOFWell, they can; they just need to set “usable for all users” in the connection information (which will also give them the benefit of having the network available in recovery mode)05:55
RAOFThey could also just set an empty password for the default kerying, in which case it's available.05:56
persiaIf the wieless password is secret enough to not be available to any user, it shouldn't be autoconnected on autologin anyway.05:56
persiaAnyway, the wireless keys *should* be stored by network-manager, not by the keyring (although the keyring may contain the secrets necessary to get the keys from network-manager).05:57
persiaimbrandon: Didn't you dig into this recently?05:58
RAOFpersia: It's not even that - even with a globally available *connection* the user will need to authenticate (via polkit) to view the actual password I think.  That's certainly nm-applet's behaviour.05:58
persiaThat's how it's supposed to work, yeah.05:58
slytherinThe reason I am asking this is because I have seen some bug reports where users are not aware that this is the root cause.05:59
persiaNM has it's own secret stores, specifically to enable use in XDG environments, so you have the same set of connections if you switch from KDE to GNOME, etc.05:59
slytherinFor example, someone setup a headless server with VNC enabled (with password) and autologin. But since the default keyring does not get unlocked the user can not actually connect via VNC.06:00

slytherinrather anything that uses keyring + autologin06:26
imbrandonyou mean by loggin in they asking for a password right away ;)06:26
slytherinNo. Autologin does not unlock the default keyring. So when some app uses keyring user is prompted for keyring password.06:28
persiaslytherin: But this is a good thing, isn't it?  If someone *really* doesn't want to protect any secrets, they should have no password for the default keyring.06:48
slytherinright. But this is not obvious for users. Users wonder 'why am I being prompted for password'.06:50

tkamppeteranyone around who knows about problems of daemons/services not starting in Lucid and to which package to assign the bug reports?13:50
patrickdCan anyone tell me where the lib of libboost fame is actually installed, I've queried the archive with both dpkg -L and apt-filelist but it seems like only the documentation is being installed. Even though I have installed the "dev" version. e.g. apt-get install libboost-dev libboost-python-dev13:51
patrickddpkg -L libboost-dev only shows entries for /usr /usr/share /usr/share/doc/libboost-dev13:52
geserpatrickd: when you read the package description, you will notice that it's only a meta-package to pull in the default version13:53
geserwhich is currently libboost1.40-dev13:53
patrickdgeser, but unless I'm missing something in that package also there are only headers and doc's in it to. With no lib to link against or am I missing something?13:55
kklimondapatrickd: libboost1.40-dev depends on other dev packages ;)13:56
geserpatrickd: the libboost-*-dev packages are split for each "sub"-library13:56
geseras you mentioned early libboost-python-dev: libboost-python1.40-dev contains the .so symlink (similar for the other libboost-*1.40-dev packages)13:58
patrickdah, okay. I've found the files there in /usr/lib13:58
patrickdbut I don't understand why when running for example dpkg -L libboost-python-dev it doesn't appear to touch the /usr/lib/ folder13:59
kklimondapatrickd: because libboost-python-dev is also a metapackage which depends on the current default boost version14:00
geserlibboost-python-dev is once again a metapackage to pull in the default libboost version, here libboost-python1.40-dev which contains the symlink14:00

jdstrandpitti: hi! can I have you opinion on http://people.canonical.com/~jamie/ff36-apparmor.diff.txt? background: there is a pending firefox update and there are these 4 bug fixes to the apparmor profile. the aa profile is disabled by default and no chance of regression (plus, me and several other people use the profile with these commits)16:03
jdstrandpitti: the question is whether to SRU these separately, with all the associated archive churn, or push them with the pending security update16:04
jdstrandpitti: I wouldn't normally ask, but in the case of firefox, upstream adds features and bug fixes beyond security fixes, so these low regression potential items seemed kinda gray...16:05
dpmmvo, no, unfortunately it's not possible to selectively allow translatable languages in rosetta. They should either revert the translations and leave them untranslated, or we blacklist the affected languages in the package, if that is possible. I think that might be the best thing to do in the short term.16:05
mvodpm: blacklistting is possible, I just need to add code for this16:06

dmartkees: hi, do you have a moment to discuss your comments on https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu-arm/+spec/arm-m-missing-security-features ?18:07
keesdmart: hi! sure.18:07
dmartkees: What did you mean by "nothing should be prelinking. everything is correctly already PIC"?18:08
keesdmart: I'm a bit new to ARM things, but as I understand it, nothing should be prelinking.18:09
keesdmart: it serves no purpose that I'm aware of.18:09
dmartMy understanding of the potential benefits of prelinking are that you may reduce a lot of dnyamic linker thrashing during app startup, but I don't know if this has been extensively investigated18:09
keesdmart: it used to be an issue for symbol resolution, but the hash tables from a few years ago made it irrelevant18:09
keesdmart: yeah, that's a total non-issue now.18:09
dmartSo prelinking is a possible optimisation, not a legacy compatibility thing18:09
keesdmart: the GNUHASH extension makes symbol look-up insanely fast.18:10
dmartI think doko integrated that for ARM now18:10
keesI view it as legacy, as the hash serves the purpose in the general case now.18:10
keesreadelf -e /bin/true | grep gnu.hash18:11
kees^^ that should answer it18:11
kees(oh right, I have armel simulator...)18:11
dmartI'd need to check with doko; I think at one point gnu.hash was present but not used for ARM (or maybe the other way around)18:11
keesso, yes.  armel has the gnu.bash stuff18:11
dmartprelinking is still potentially interesting because we may suffer a lot of TLB misses and cache line fills during app startup at symbols get resolved.18:12
keesregardless, ASLR is missing, even if legacy apps want to prelink.  prelinking makes ASLR useless, but just for the app doing the prelink.18:12
keesdmart: that might be true, but I think (hope) it's an uncommon need.18:13
kees(doing prelink)18:13
dmartdunno really, currently the preformance implications are not well understood.  I don't think it's been investigated much yet, but I've heard it mentioned.18:13
dmartI've found no obvious reason why ASLR shouldn't be possible on ARM generally18:14
dmartmaybe just noone did it yet.18:14
dmartkees: Next point: the vdso18:15
dmartCurrently, on ARM we enter the kernel via SVC (aka SWI) - which is more analogous to INT and SYSENTER/SYSEXIT18:15
dmartThere is no need for a "well-known return address" to get back into userspace18:16
keesdmart: right, yes, ASLR> totally possible, just no one has done it.18:16
keesdmart: ah, okay.  I know that x86 starting doing sysenter because int80 was so expesnive.18:16
keeser, expensive.18:16
keesdmart: if that's not the case for ARM, then I don't really care.18:16
keesdmart: but I have to wonder why ARM has a vdso then...18:17
kees7fff192e1000-7fff192e2000 r-xp 00000000 00:00 0                          [vdso]18:17
keesseems like if it has a vdso, it should be ASLRs18:17
* psusi decides to inject some luls for everyone's amusement: "Who is General failure, and why is he trying to read my C: drive?"18:17
keespsusi: hehe18:17
dmartIf this is ARM, why do the addresses have 48 bits? ;)18:17

keesdmart: I don't have a "real" ARM system.  :P18:20
dmartMaybe you are getting the host's info somehow18:21
keesI must be18:21
* kees boots an ARM VM instead of chroot thingy18:21
dmartOK, well I'll tweak the blueprint whiteboard a bit based on this chat18:22
keesdmart: hah.  well that makes things easier.  ;)18:22
keesdmart: yeah, please drop the vdso thing.  :)18:22
keesdmart: do you know why ARM loads ELF so low in memory?  was there a time when it didn't have sane virtual memory?18:22
dmartvdso might be relevant later, but probably not for now.  The nearest equivalent thing is the vectors page, but it's not straightforward to move that.18:22
dmartDo you know why x86 loads ELF so _high_ in memory ;)  I've always wondered about this18:23
keesheh, I don't.  :)18:24
dmartAnyway, I don't really know why the difference exists.  I think there's just no reason not to... there's nothing else down there that we're trying to avoid18:24
keesyeah, with the mmap_min_addr stuff, it's one of the deltas between x86 and ARM.18:25
dmartThere's also the issue of where the linker traditionally puts .text: for ARM it's just at the bottom of VM, leaving space for some NULL pages18:26
keesright, that's what I mean.  x86 linker goes to 0x0804000, ARM linker goes to 0x0000800018:27
dmartOn x86, it's 0x8048000, but I have no idea what the 128MB gap is for.  libc seems to appear down there sometimes18:27
keesanything you're seeing below that is due to x86-32 nx-emulation patch crack.18:28
dmartFortunately XN should work natively on ARMv718:29
keesbut yeah, dunno about the 0x08040000 bump.  anyway, was just curious, since it'd be nice to have the memory layouts be similar.  :)18:29
dmartI don't have an answer on that one.  I wondered whether the kernel used to live down there on very old kernels or something... but really I have no idea.18:30
dmartAnyways, I'll tweak the blueprint again tomorrow.  Most of it seems totally doable, though I haven't dug too deep18:31
keesdmart: cool.18:31
