bullgard4 '~$ uname -r; 2.6.32-21-generic'. After startup or thawing there is a process 'flush-8:0' (and often similar ones having other digits). What is its function? I believe it is a kernel process which writes a buffer to disk. Where can I find its associated source code?06:12
* winXPuser googles it06:13
winXPuserDo you have wine?06:14
winXPuserI mean Wine, the app06:14
winXPuserthe one which can run windows applications in linux06:14
bullgard4winXPuser: Who are you talking to?06:17
winXPuseryou! I tried to google your string, it seeems to be related to wine on linux06:18
RAOFbullgard4: I *think* you'd be looking for the vfs subsystem.  I don't think that's the responsibility of the filesystem (probably ext4).06:21
bullgard4winXPuser: I do not use Wine.06:22
bullgard4RAOF: I agree with you that my problem is not within the responsibility of the filesystem. Rather, of the kernel.06:25
RAOFbullgard4: I haven't seen you describe a problem?  Are you looking for this code for some particular reason?06:26
bullgard4RAOF I am looking for this code because i.) my X occasionally crashes ii.) After booting or thawing I am getting a lot of I/O operations which was not the case with earlier kernel.06:28
RAOFOh.  Well, that will be a kernel thread responsible for writing the the buffers out to one of your discs.  It's clearly going to be doing a lot of i/o :)06:30
RAOFIt's not going to generate any i/o on its own, though.06:30
bullgard4RAOF: You say: "that will be a kernel thread responsible for writing the the buffers out to one of your discs." Where can I find the source code for the 'flush-8:0' process?06:40
RAOFAs I said before: I think you'll be looking at the vfs subsystem.  Of the kernel.06:41

baptistemmsorry I'll repeat what I asked yesterday night: I'm coming to get some help about bluetooth adapter and kernel, I'm managing the applications and bug report related to bluetooth and I have some bug reports where people reported their bluetooth adapter is no more discovered in lucid while they were seen in karmic kernel.10:24
baptistemmOne example is example is bug 572197 where the adapter was discovered under karmic but not under lucid 10:25

apwbaptistemm, i don't know of any bluetooth controllers we would expect to have become unsupported10:25
baptistemmI'm not impacted by such bug so it's hard for me to know what happens, and my kernel fu is somewhat near zero10:26
apwbaptistemm, therefore i would say we need to find out if they are PCI or USB and find out their IDs in each case to see if there is a pattern10:26
baptistemmapw, is there a specific driover for each adapter or is btusb a generic module for them?10:26
baptistemmI did an apport hook for bluez so normally there is the output of lsusb attached to bug report 10:27
apwbaptistemm, i am not much of a bluetooth expert either, but most seem to be USB and use the same driver ... i think its called btusb but i note that i don't have BT on either of these boxes ... hrm10:28
apwbaptistemm, from a triag point of view, we'd be wanting to find out the exact id's of the devices, and getting dmesg output from karmic (or whever it worked) too10:28
apwto see which driver picked it up there10:28
baptistemmapw, how tyhe kernel know which module to load for a device (sorry for the dumb question) or point me to a good explanation of you can :)10:29
apwbaptistemm, it also sounds like there is a fair few of these?  if so it would be handy to get the ones you think are related to this issue tagged with something ... lucid-bluetooth or something and let JFo know that you think there is an issue and what tag you are using10:30
apwas he can help get the initial triage done there10:30
baptistemmapw, hmm okay, that would be nice, I'm a bit ashamed to not had come earlier to see that with you10:30
apwbaptistemm, the kernel generally loads drivers based on device attributes, PCI ids, USB ids, HID attributes etc10:31
baptistemmapw, does make a updated-usbid would help the user? ?10:31
apwbaptistemm, don't be, at least we are aware now, and can follow up10:31
apwbaptistemm, not sure ... the best thing is to collect these all together and and lets get a kernel person to go over them looking for a common issue10:32
baptistemmI'm not that ashame, but not one cared to follow bluetooth bugs for months, and I see such. I just try know to do the job that someone should do :)10:32
apwand i think the best way there is to leverage the good work you have done, by getting your list to our main triage contact: ircnick JFo, though he is normally not awake for a few hours yet10:33
apwbaptistemm, the first step is knowing who to approach, us here for one, and definatly knowing jfo can help as he has a lot of trige experience and always keen to have help from area experts10:33

* psurbhi digs into btrfs code11:40
ckingpsurbhi, did you check out that grub 0.97 btrfs patch that I referred to?11:42
psurbhicking, yes i got that one11:42
psurbhicking, m looking first at only single device support.11:42
psurbhithat patch needs huge modifications for grub2, but ofcourse is a very helpful one11:43
ckingyep, it's a pain to migrate between the two versions11:43
ckingpsurbhi, what's "single device support"? I'm confused11:45
psurbhicking, no raid support.. no subvolume11:45
psurbhifrom grub11:45
psurbhiso targeting /boot to be on a single partition and no raid involvd11:46
ckingpsurbhi, why do you need to be looking at that for btrfs? or is this another side-issue that needs looking at?11:47
psurbhicking, as in?11:47
psurbhicking, i am not looking at that right now..but sometime later someone else might do it11:48
ckingpsurbhi, I just thought you were digging around in brtfs/grub2 support... sorry, I'm not fully up to speed with what you are doing in grub211:49
psurbhicking, yes thats right11:49
psurbhicking, http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-btrfs@vger.kernel.org/msg02024.html11:50
psurbhicking, i am trying to get up to speed with the btrfs features :(11:51

ckingpsurbhi, fair enough, it looks like a minefield11:52
apwcking, HRM, well my dell 1537 shows this suspend/remove battery/resume/no fans issue ... interestingly inserting the battery live after resume makes the sensors come back11:52
ckingapw, whats the LP bug for this again?11:55
apwcking, just got them to start a new one12:00
ubot3Malone bug 575030 in linux "[Dell Studio 1537] No sensors and fan control if there is no battery present on wakeup from suspend" [Low,Triaged] 12:00
apwcking, it is reasonable to remove/reinsert a battery with the machine running right?12:01
ckingapw, yep12:01
apwcking, then i think we can call this one pretty low as you can fix it by inserting and re-removing the battery12:01
ckingit's perfectly reasonable. Depends what the BIOS does when the EC detects these state changes12:01
ckingapw, it's going to be annoying if one has to replug the battery every time12:03
apwcking, yep for sure, though why you would remove the battery is beyond me12:03
apwi need to try and karmic kernel i guess to find out if this is a regressions12:04
ckingyep - you've got H/W which can repro this bug - that's v.helpful12:05
apwcking, going down to try the other combination, removing the battery awake then s/r12:06
akgranerapw, my cpu temp has been hovering about 78C all morning- but when I killed Chromium and Gwibber it went back to 48C - Do you know if Gwibber is still causing the CPU temp to rise like that?12:08
apwakgraner, i have a vague memory of someone saying something about a CPU issue with gwibber, so could be12:09
apwakgraner, is that with the -proposed kernel or the regular one?12:09
akgranerapw -proposed as far as I know - I didn't change it since I added -proposed12:09
apwcking, ok its actually r without battery thats the issue as removing the battery before also breaks things12:09
apwakgraner, cat /proc/version_signature whats that say12:10
* akgraner looks12:11
akgranerapw, Ubuntu 2.6.32-21.32-generic
apwakgraner, the version in -proposed is -22.3312:12

akgraneron my machine I mean12:13
ckinganyone got any ideas on why S4 is so sloooooow12:13
apwthats the only version that has ever been in -proposed12:13
apwcking, so slow to get into and out of ?12:13
akgranerapw, I meant how did it get changed after I installed the -proposed one b/c I didn't change it 12:13
ckingapw, yep - compared to Windoze and OS X it's really lame12:13
apwakgraner, i suspect you never got it12:13
apwcking, S4 == hibernate12:14
akgranerbut anywho - let me go add the -proposed one and add it12:14
apwcking, ?12:14
ckingapw, yep, S4 == hibernate.  I've found that dropping cached pages may help, but I thought hibernate evicted these pages by default12:14
apwcking, i also find it takes for ever, though i have 4GB of ram and everything like sync etc do12:18
apwcking, windows does its magic suspend means hibernate and suspend hybrid thing, and i suspect that is the trigger for the 'always writing' behaviour of windows12:18
ckingapw, yeah, given enough time I'd rig up a QEMU image of both and check out I/O block activity to sanity check this assumption12:24
apwcking, yeah sounds like a plan for your copius [sic] spare time12:24
ckingapw, I have a server spare next door, so I can kick off some tests12:30
* apw pokes his head out the window to hear cking's server spin up12:30
akgranerapw, it's gwibber - I started it back up and within a couple seconds the temp went from 42C to 63C12:32
apwakgraner, ouch12:32
apwakgraner, fans running ok with that kernel i hope12:33
akgraneroh yeah now they kick on12:33
akgranerwhere as before they never did12:33
akgranerapw so that is a win :-)12:33
apwakgraner, yeah something at least12:34

* abogani waves12:36
aboganiI'm wondering why in kernel configuration the default governor is "performance" (`grep -i cpu_freq_default /boot/config-2.6.31-21-generic`) but a `cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor` return "ondemand".12:36
ograabogani, it gets switched during boot12:37
ograusing performance in the initial boot significantly speeds up the bootprocess12:38
aboganiogra: Sound reasonable. Is there a way to configure it (I would want stick on "performance")?12:39

bigcx2what gives?14:10
bigcx2the UUID in grub is exactly the same as the working version14:10
bigcx2and i also tried specifically setting root (hd0,0) and root=/dev/sda1 with no success14:11
apwJFo, i'd say that that is a sparc issue isn't it? so its not a high priority for us14:12
JFoyeah, i suspected that might be the case14:12
JFojust wanted to get someone smarter than me to have a look :)14:12
apwbigcx2, does it make you an initramfs?  UUID is mapped by initramfs, if root= does not work then i would wonder if the disk driver is loading correctly, or again if you are missing an initramfs as we do not build most of them in14:13
sconklinJFo: I'll subscribe myself, thanks. I think it's probably compiz and not kernel, but who knows14:14
JFosconklin, I was wondering that, but I am still way away from being anywhere near conversational on graphics :)14:14
JFothanks for looking14:15
bigcx2apw: i don't think it's loading the proper disk driver, when i boot the kernel in debug mode, it says "here are the available partitions"14:15
bigcx2apw: but then nothing shows up14:15
apwthat would be indicative of no driver.  do you have an initramfs for that kernel 14:16
bigcx2apw: but i can't figure out why it wouldn't be loading the proper driver? like i said i used the exact same config used in my working kernel14:16
bigcx2i ran make-kpkg with --initrd if that's what you mean14:16
apwbigcx2, the most important thing is whether we see it loaded kernel wise14:17
apwyou get to an initramfs prompt on failure to find the root disk?14:17
apwif not i suspect its not using it14:17
bigcx2no, i don't get a prompt14:17
bigcx2how can i get it to use it?14:18

apwbigcx2, the kernel obviously does not do that, and its there you see the list you mentioned.  so i am suspicious you don't have the initramfs in use14:18
apwthat can occur for several reasons, not specified in the boot loader entry, or incorrect option on the kernel so it doesn't check14:19
bigcx2let me take a look at my grub conf one more time14:20
apwbigcx2, i'd start with the bootloader as you used our config14:20
sconklinJFo: yeah, just checked, and there were no major changes in the intel driver in the release range mentioned in the bug - I'll update it with that info14:21
JFocoolness, thanks sconklin 14:21
bigcx2there's not initrd line in my custom kernel boot!14:21
bigcx2i wonder why that didn't get appended to the grub conf14:22
apwbigcx2, strange indeed14:22
aboganiI suggest to post the "ls -l /boot' output14:23
bigcx2thanks guys, one sec14:23
sconklinWait JFo, I did find a cuoplf of i915 patches that went in when they say the problem started, I'll investigate14:24
JFosconklin, k14:24
bigcx2yea, it looks like there was not initrd generated for my custom kernel14:27
bigcx2i see a System.map file14:27
aboganibigcx2: AFAIK the debian way for generate initial ramdisk (aka make-kpkg --initrd) don't work on Ubuntu.14:28
bigcx2abogani: please ubuntize me :)14:28
aboganibigcx2: cd /boot; sudo mkinitramfs -o $DESTDIR/initrd.img-$VERSION $VERSION14:29
=== JanC_ is now known as JanC
bigcx2abogani: ok, trying that, how can i make my kernel deb include that as part of the build process?14:30
bigcx2aka what is the proper ubuntu build procedure?14:31
aboganibigcx2: Initramfs file generation never should be included in deb build procedures because it is machine depend.14:34
bigcx2abogani: ok, did not know that14:34
bigcx2i'm reading the wiki page on kernel compile14:35
bigcx2and it says14:35
bigcx2Since Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) the image postinst no longer runs the initramfs creation commands. Instead, there are example scripts provided that will perform the task. These scripts will work for official kernel images as well. For example 14:35
bigcx2sudo cp /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/examples/etc/kernel/postinst.d/initramfs /etc/kernel/postinst.d/initramfs 14:37
bigcx2sudo cp /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/examples/etc/kernel/postrm.d/initramfs /etc/kernel/postrm.d/initramfs14:37
bigcx2abogani: if it's not included in the deb build procedure, should I put it in there by hand in the debian postinst, postrm scripts?14:40
* persia was under the impression that was now handled by triggers from initramfs-tools14:42
=== oubiwann_ is now known as oubiwann
bigcx2ok, so i just tried to add my initrd img to my grub conf, which complained about ot beign able to load modules.dep14:45
bigcx2and then it failed to mount the root filesystem based on uuid14:45
bigcx2then i tried specifically putting in a root (hd0,0) line and adding root=/dev/sda114:46
bigcx2both methods dropped me into a busybox initramfs shell14:46
bigcx2abogani: i just got it to work by using update-initramfs14:56
bigcx2instead of mkinitramfs14:56
bigcx2update-initramfs -t -c -k ${VERSION}14:57
bigcx2and then updating my grub conf14:57
bigcx2but i guess my question is, what's the best way to automate that? will using AUTOBUILD do the trick?14:58
ianloicargh, so my key input is feeling super laggy and drops keystrokes. plus event/1 takes 30-60% of cpu. where should I ask? how can I debug?15:00
ianloicthis is on 10.10 on a thinkpad x61 (ie: intel chipsets)15:01
aboganibigcx2: No. I don't know a lot about Lucid but until Karmic initramfs was generated at installation time.15:01
aboganibigcx2: If you create a flavour probably you don't have to take care of it.15:02
aboganibigcx2: If you create an Ubuntu kernel flavour (aka you reuse debian.master/ directory as template renaming in debian.myflavour) probably you don't have to care on how initramfs will be generated.15:04
=== cking-afk is now known as cking
bigcx2ah, ok i'll look into that15:05
aboganibigcx2: I would suggest you to take a look on  http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-lucid.git;a=summary (in the bottom of the page at 'heads').15:08
bigcx2abogani: k, thanks15:10
baptistemmJFo, Hi, as apw said, I try to triage bluetooth software related bugs, and some of them are about bt device not being discovered (after kernel and/or distro upgrade). Now I'm at work but I'll try to get back to you once I'm back home tonight or in the current week15:29
JFook baptistemm sounds good15:29
* psurbhi breaks.. eyes are watering.. 15:37
ogasawaraapw: you mentioned earlier that if I sync'd Lucid with Maverick as of today I need to sort out "the bug", which bug is that?15:51
apwogasawara, if those commits have a bug number, its likely now they would have a lucid and linux task15:52
ogasawaraapw: ack15:52
apwthe linux task is yours now, rather than lucid as it were15:52
* ogasawara was too literal with her interpretation of "the bug"15:52
apwogasawara, heh yeah probabally15:54
* JFo was thinking bug 115:54
ubot3JFo: Error: Could not parse data returned by Malone: The read operation timed out15:54
JFoubot3, fail15:54
ubot3Factoid fail not found15:54
apwthats normal its too long15:54
tgardnerapw, I think there is a maverick field now as well. at least when you nominate for release, maverick shows up in the list15:54
tgardnerwe should be able to assign all maverick bugs to ogasawara 15:55
ogasawaraapw: for the most part, I'm relying on smb et al to follow SRU policy from this point ie the fix needs to be applied to the actively developed kernel before qualifying for SRU15:55
* ogasawara slaps tgardner 15:55
apwogasawara, yeah there is a 'gap' for some in there now i suspect15:55
* ogasawara nods15:56
apwogasawara, as normal, "here is an egg"15:56
* psurbhi quits for today16:15
JFomoin bjf 16:24

JFolate afternoon then? :-P16:25
bjfJFo, 5:30 p.m., it's time for a beer16:28
JFoindeed it is16:29
ckingbjf, where are you at the moment? I'm geographically challenged 16:34
tgardnerapw, how do I disable join/depart messages on this silly xchat client?16:34

smbtgardner, You right click on the channel tab16:35
smbtgardner, Then tick under settings16:36
tgardnersmb, doh! not an obvious place16:36
apwtgardner, yeah what smb said16:36
tgardnerI have to do that for each channel?16:36
smbtgardner, I did that, though maybe there is a shortcut. Luckily xchat remembers16:37
vanhooftgardner: does xchat respect /ignore ?16:37
ogasawaramanjo: do you need us to hold a session at UDS for the kernel-maverick-firewire-stack blueprint, or do you already know what needs doing16:37
achiangtgardner: ^^16:37
ogasawaramanjo: ie no need for me to schedule a slot for it16:38
vanhoof this might get you what you need  -- /ignore * JOINS PARTS QUITS MODES16:38
tgardnerachiang, cool, thanks16:38
bjftgardner, don't you want settings->preferences->chatting->general16:39
* achiang has backlog_msg_only = true; set in his bip.conf too16:39
bjftgardner, maybe not16:39
tgardnerbjf, that doesn't cover all of the cases16:40
* JFo goes for lunch16:51

kamalI have installed a custom DSDT.aml, but I find that CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT is not enabled so kernel doesn't try to load it.  I think that this config param used to be called CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_INITRD and that it was enabled by default.  Is that correct?  Why is it no longer enabled by default?18:29
ckingkamal, because people can seriously damage their H/W if they mess it up ;-)18:34
kamalcking: people like me, for instance!  ;-)18:34
ckingmaybe ;-)18:34
kamalcking: I'm about to try enabling it in the config here.18:35
ckingno harm in trying I suppose18:36
BenCkamal: if the dsdt_initrd patch was not applied, you wont have any luck18:39
BenCkamal: you will need to compile your DSDT.aml into the kernel instead18:39
BenCkamal: CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_INITRD was not part of the upstream kernel, and was applied into the ubuntu kernel as an extra patch18:40
* cking notes that BenC knows the history to this.18:40
BenCcking: I didn't know it was removed as an option to the ubuntu kernel until now though :)18:41
kamalBenC: ok -- that's where that config went!   I think I'd prefer to be able to install DSDT.aml into initrd if that's possible -- can I apply that patch to my Lucid kernel?  where can I find it? 18:41
mjg59kamal: Why do you have a custom DSDT?18:42
kamalmjg59: I'm working on a problem with Dell Studio laptops brightness control.18:42
mjg59Which model?18:42
kamalDell Studio 1558.18:43
ckingkamal, you need to see why the _BCM is being ignored - the AML looked sane to me at a first glance18:43
ubot3Malone bug 568611 in linux "Screen brightness control fails on Dell Studio 1558" [Undecided,In progress] 18:43
mjg59I bet it's because the _BQC is full of misery18:46
kamalcking: re: your email -- I'm not convinced that _BCM is in the right scope -- there is /not/ a _BCM method in the DD02 device, but there is a _BCL there.  Looking at a different laptop (completely different vendor) I do see _BCM and _BCL in the equivalent of the "DD02".18:46
mjg59Oh, that is interesting18:47
kamalmjg59: Yes, the _BQC is quite broken also, but I think that's a completely secondary problem!18:47
ckingkamal, the _BQC does not appear to do much18:49
kamalSo...  I think that 1. the _BCM is in the wrong place (matching acpica's "AE_NOT_FOUND").   I've constructed a DSDT.aml with it moved where I think it needs to be (and fixed, since its visibly bug-ridden).   I want to see if acpica no longer says AE_NOT_FOUND at least.18:49
mjg59kamal: Yeah, you get to build a new kernel in that cae18:49
kamalcking: yeah, the _BQC can't possibly be "correct" as it doesn't return any value.18:49
* cking wonders if Dell QA's this code18:50
mjg59Interesting that it's Intel18:50
kamalmjg59: ok, no problem -- I'm happy to build a new kernel -- where do I stuff my hacked DSDT.aml?18:50
ckingmjg59, why?18:50
mjg59Because, in theory, with the IGD opregion support you could avoid needing to call _BCM18:50
mjg59So I wonder whether the Intel driver for Windows ignores it18:51
ckingmjg59, any info on where I can learn about the IGD opregion support?18:51
kamalmjg59: Looking at the _BCM code (the misplaced _BCM code mind you ;-) I don't think that it could possibly work anyway -- the code logic is just wrong.18:52
kamalmjg59: so that matches the idea that Windows doesn't actually use it.18:52
ckingkamal, that sounds like a good theory18:52
mjg59Would need to extend video.c to allow display drivers to register callbacks18:53
ckingkamal, want to run with that^^18:57
kamalcking: run with what?...  extending video.c for opregion?   that sounds like a major project!18:58
mjg59The opregion spec is entirely implemented already18:59
mjg59Well. I say "entirely" - the bits that make any sense at all are18:59
mjg59Where i915.c currently does acpi_video_register() (or something like that), you want to be able to pass in some callbacks that will be used when the brightness is set or retrieved19:00
mjg59That does, of course, end up being predicated on the machine using opregion. What does lspci -s 02.0 -xxx give?19:01

kamalmjg59: http://paste.ubuntu.com/427808/19:07
mjg59Yeah, ok, that implements the opregion spec19:08
cking-afkmjg59, what specific magic shows that?19:09
mjg59cking-afk: fc-ff aren't 019:10
kamalok, so if I'm following, you're saying that we might be able to get working brightness controls by adding appropriate "opregion hooks" which can adjust the brightness levels without bothering with the _BCM method at all.   Yes?19:10
kamalOk, I'll start reading that OpRegion spec then!19:11
kamalhmmm.  maybe I'll still try installing my hacked DSDT anyway, as a sanity check.19:11
cking-afkkamal, worth wiki'ng up once you reach OpRegion enlightenment19:12
kamalif-and-when ;-)  What little I understand about ACPI is just enough to get me in trouble, I fear.  ;-)19:12
mjg59kamal: Easiest is probably to take a look at the i915_opregion.c code rather than the spec19:12
mjg59The spec departs from reality in one or two cases19:13
kamalmjg59: ok, great, thanks for that tip19:13

baptistemm_Heya, I'm back19:55
baptistemm_JFo, hi, what should I do with the bug related to kernel? should I tag them and reassigning to kernel?20:13
manjobaptistemm, what is the bug number ? 20:44
baptistemm_manjo, actually I continue a discussion I had previously with JFo, I have some bug report from bluetooth users about lack of support of their bt adapter (or regression)20:48
baptistemm_manjo, bug reports are 416487 and 57219720:48
manjobaptistemm_, this is a regression in Lucid ? 20:54
manjobaptistemm_, looks like the 2 the dups of each other ?20:55
baptistemm_manjo, 572197 yes, the other no20:56
manjothose looks like valid bugs that could be picked up by the kernel team20:57
baptistemm_manjo, so I should reassign to kernel ?20:57
manjobaptistemm_, let me see if I those models with me... I have a EEEPC here ... 20:57
