drew212ddecator: are you available/around?04:04
ddecatordrew212: yup. what's up?04:04
drew212i've been wanting to triage bugs outside of firefox, but IDK where to start =P04:05
drew212ddecator: if a bug doesnt have a specific debugging wiki i'm kindof lost on what to do.04:05
ddecatordrew212: alright. well, the general idea is to make sure there is enough info for the developers to fix the issue. obviously how you do that can depend on the package, but there are some general things we do (apport info, possibly reproduce, etc.)04:07
ddecatordrew212: is there a package you're considering working with?04:07
micahgdrew212: this week's bug day is perfect for you04:08
drew212ddecator: i want to be fluent enough to work with all packages04:08
ddecatormicahg: oh, good point04:08
ddecatordrew212: good goal! like micahg said, this bugday (starting in a couple of hours) is bugs with unassigned packages. if you want to push yourself a little, look into that and try to assign bugs to packages and then follow through on ones that interest you :)04:09
micahgdrew212: don't be afraid to start it early :)04:09
drew212micahg: i cant find the hugday wiki, my google-fu isn't workin =X04:10
micahgdrew212: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/04:10
ddecatordrew212: and pedro usually sends out an email to the ML announcing bugdays and providing a link to the wiki page04:11
ddecatordrew212: have i gone through the bugday tools with you yet?04:11
drew212ddecator: no, give me a second, an old friend is calling me04:12
ddecatordrew212: sure thing. i'll find the wiki page we'll need04:12
micahgddecator: should be a link off the page I linked04:13
ddecatormicahg: yah i thought there was but i don't see it..04:13
micahgddecator: details for the day, then hugday-tools :)04:13
ddecatormicahg: that's it! thanks :)04:14
drew212ddecator: i'm back, sorry a buddy of mine stopped by04:53
ddecatordrew212: np. interested in helping out with the bugday?04:54
drew212yes, i'm kindof busy tomorrow, but i'll do some early =P04:54
ddecatorsounds good. here is the link that describes how to setup the tools: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/Tools (you don't have to download the branch, start at the point where you install the package)04:56
drew212ddecator: jeez, there are a ton of bugs without a package04:59
ddecatordrew212: a TON04:59
drew212ddecator: what is easiest way to get from the terminal into LP?05:00
drew212i notice the bug number is listed...05:00
drew212when i use the hugday tools05:01
drew212'hugday list'05:01
ddecatoroh, i've never used that command, haha. i usually go to the current bugday's wiki page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/20100708) then i use the hugday tool to "close" them on that page05:02
drew212i'm tryin to get better with the terminal =P05:03
drew212do i have to have it triaged before i mark it as completed, or just find the correct package?05:04
ddecatorfind the correct package. for bugdays, the bug is "closed" on the wiki page once the appropriate action has been taken (requesting more info, confirming, etc.) basically if you've done everything that can currently be done with the bug, and there is no point in others looking at it, then you can close it on the wiki05:05
ddecatorlooking at it that day*05:05
drew212ddecator: and what if the work is already done before you do it, close it and put their name on it?05:06
ddecatordrew212: nah, when you close it using the tool it automatically puts your name. if you see they worked on it as part of the bugday, then you can usually ping them here and ask if there was something they still meant to do or if maybe they forgot to close it05:07
drew212ddecator: well i dont know where to start =X, i'm not very good at assigning packages05:10
ddecatordrew212: nobody is at first :), and sometimes you can be sure. if you have a good hunch, or if you know it's related to a group of packages, then you can find a starting place for it. you can always request more info to help you determine the right package too.05:12
ddecatordrew212: find one that sounds like you know what it is involving, and you can always ask here if you are unsure :)05:12
drew212would bug 592726 be a flash bug?05:13

drew212ddecator: i'm searching upstream05:16
ddecatorif X is locking up, it might be the graphics driver not agreeing with flash. i would ask them for the output of "lspci | grep VGA" so we can see if there are other reports of the same driver causing X to lockup05:17
ddecatordrew212: it'd also be good to have them clarify if it only happens on pages with flash, or if it always happens on pages with flash but other times as well05:19

mmestnikHello, I had a question or two about the bug tracker and recommended operation.  This also indicates that I have a problem I'd like to have fixed/worked on, sorry if I find it hard to discuss one without talking about the other.16:08
ubot2Launchpad bug 158891 in bluefish (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "Bluefish won't open Firefox as external viewer. (heat: 6)" [Low,In progress]16:08
mmestnikThis issue(how to invoke a browser from another application) effects a lot of applications.16:08
mmestnikIt should therefore have some documentation attached to it, like a maintainers guide.16:09
mmestnikThe first question is, where is this maintainers guide and does it spell out the correct syntax?16:09
mmestnik The second question is, my application got it wrong, is there a way I can close this bug or attach my app to it?16:09

mmestnikShould I just attach my application to this bug?  If so how?16:16
mmestnikThis issue defiantly needs a small team to manage and maintain.  For instance there should be a recommended set of tools for doing this, like a library and a command line application that links with it.16:17
abhi_navpedro_, i confused meeting with hug day. i read about meeting on 13th july. :)16:17
mmestnikThe idea would be that major projects like Thunderbird and gedit would link with this library that would have a ~large~ array of back-ends for different browsers.16:19

hggdhelopio: (1) the Ubuntu task should be changed to the local Ubuntu package; (2) we need to find both the Ubuntu version and the Ubuntu package version;17:09
atrusmicahg: i can only assume it's because people want the GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS fix/workaround pushed into firefox? i can't see anywhere else that fix could reasonably be applied.17:10
hggdhelopio: (3) is this zope, indeed? I do not know, I never worked with zope...17:10
abhi_navmicahg, it is conformed for firefox too. correct me if i dont know. i will change17:11
abhi_navmicahg, i am new17:11
micahgabhi_nav: no, the issue is in the flash plugin, but can be fixed w/a workaround in nspluginwrapper17:11
micahgatrus: that's not the proper place to fix it17:11
atrusmicahg: except only 64-bit users use nspluginwrapper17:11
micahgatrus: yes, true, so Adobe needs to fix this17:12
atrusunless you're suggesting that nspluginwrapper should be used everywhere, which could be argued17:12
atrusmicahg: given their release history, they're not likely to get around to it any time soon i think.17:12
micahgatrus: I just saw something w/a request to that point, but I don't think that'll happen17:12
micahgatrus: WebM ftw :)17:12
atrusif there's an easy workaround to apply at the browser level, go for it, i say.17:12
micahgatrus: IIRC, firefox is already patched for it17:13
atrusmicahg: for video, sure, even theora. but there's a lot more to flash than video.17:13
abhi_navmicahg, lots of things listed there who have affect. so in my case i have this problem only in firefox. and i dont have in any other aps17:13
atrusmicahg: upstream, but not in ubuntu?17:13
abhi_navmicahg, so what should i do now? change it?17:13
micahgatrus: both I think, I'd have to check17:13
atrusmicahg: that seems like an good argument for leaving it new/confirmed in firefox(ubuntu), so we get that fix in an updated firefox, or backported.17:14
atrusbetter than invalid anyways.17:14
elopiohggdh: I think the problem is on zope.index. repoze.catalog uses it for indexing and the error log refers to /home/ccomb/buildout-eggs/zope.index-3.6.017:14
hggdhelopio: cool. Please change the Ubuntu task to zope.index17:15
atrusmicahg: if you can find an upstream bug for it, that might be nice to be able to point people in the right direction17:15
elopiohggdh: but it should be something like zope.incex (ubuntu), right?17:15
hggdhelopio: correct (or the equivalent Ubuntu source package)17:16

pedro_Darxus, and the bug i've pointed you is the one that's watching that upstream report, if you look at the first description it's the same21:48
pedro_there's also an idea on how to solve the issue on the comment #421:50

pedro_Darxus, feel free to comment there ;-)21:51
pedro_Darxus, i'm not the maintainer , sorry21:51
Darxuspedro_: Right, but what I'm asking you is if you, personally, think it's reasonable for this ubuntu bug to not be marked high?21:52
DarxusAnd for this to be something for ubuntu to take more interest in than waiting for an upstream resolution.21:52
pedro_Darxus, i can mark it as high, but that is not going to make any difference21:52
Darxus...Do you want people to use ubuntu?21:53
maxwellianDarxus: The point being made on the upstream bug report is that people have known about this for a long time but nobody has thought it was a big enough deal to patch it.21:54
maxwellianDarxus: I agree with you that it's a problem that should be fixed, but the developers seem to think it's not very many people.21:54
maxwellianpedro_: If you think the upstream bug is the same, it should be linked on our bug page.21:55
pedro_maxwellian, it's linked now21:55
maxwellianDarxus: Or, not affecting many people.21:55

pedro_abhi_nav, it was an open question rather ;-)21:58
abhi_navpedro_, ok21:58
DarxusIt's probably not very many people because most who have come across it immediately stopped using linux.22:04
DarxusI think it's reasonable to set priorities proportional to the liklihood of a bug causing a preson to stop using linux.  And I think this one is pretty freaking likely.22:06
maxwellianDarxus: I'm with you on that.  The developer commented that "lots of things go wrong if your /tmp directory fills up", but most users shouldn't be expected to just know that.22:07
DarxusMy understanding is that the ability to submit bugs against ubuntu packages when the problem actually exists upstream is for cases where ubuntu might care more than the upstream developers.  And I think this is a case where ubuntu should care a lot.22:07
maxwellianDarxus: I haven't read the bugs marked as duplicates, are they prioritized differently?22:08
micahgDarxus: patches welcome22:08
Darxusmaxwellian: The ubuntu bugs are all "low".22:11
DarxusThe gnome bugs are normal/minor, Normal/normal.22:11
maxwellianmicahg: I imagine Darxus is on the verge of abandoning Ubuntu on the basis of poor user experience in this area.  I don't think we generally correct poor user experience by telling the user to become a developer.  It's nice when that happens, but we certainly shouldn't expect it.22:11
trinikronohey guys22:15
micahgmaxwellian: right, but even between the paid devs and the volunteers, there are limited resources22:18
maxwellianmicahg: No question there, and I have a huge amount of gratitude for all of the work that goes into Ubuntu, paid or otherwise.22:20
micahgmaxwellian: and I don't know Darxus 's technical ability22:20
maxwellianmicahg: But the whole point of "triage" is to prioritize bugs, and bugs that will scare people away from using Ubuntu at all seem more important than other kinds.22:21
micahgmaxwellian: yep, this is true, but it does seem like more of a corner case especially with the large drives that come w/machines today22:22
maxwellianmicahg: I agree that most users probably never experience this.  Okay, thanks for your take on it.22:26
micahgmaxwellian: I deferred to pedro since he is one of the main triagers for GNOME in Ubuntu22:27
maxwellianRight, makes sense.  Okay well I'll look into it more, see if there's some way I can help.  Not likely, but we'll see. :P22:31
DarxusI've actually been a programmer for a bunch of years.  But if ubuntu won't even consider this a signficant bug... well, it's infuriating.22:33
DarxusImagine if your mom tried to use her mac or windows computer, couldn't log in, and got no error.  That'd be fucked up.22:33
micahgDarxus: please understand, there is a lot of work to do for each Ubuntu release22:34
maxwellianDarxus: I seem to remember weird things happening in Windows when your hard drive filled up?22:34
Darxusmicahg: I realize that.  And like maxwellian said, I really appreciate all the work.22:34
yofelmicahg: I'm not sure how you folks handle firefox bugs. Is it ok to expire bug 498765 as it got no response?22:35
ubot2Launchpad bug 498765 in firefox-3.5 (Ubuntu) "Content overlap (affects: 1) (heat: 16)" [Undecided,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/49876522:35
micahgyofel: yes, no test case or URL means we can't do anything with it22:36
yofelok, thx22:37
maxwellianDarxus: I agree that doing something about this issue is a good thing for Ubuntu.  How would you feel about looking deeper into the problem, at the code level?  I'd be interested myself, but I don't think I have the technical chops at this point.  I'd be more than happy to help you in some way.22:46
DarxusI might.22:47
micahgyofel: you have a script to expire bugs?22:48
yofelim writing and testing one just now :P22:49
micahgyofel: k, would be great if we can get it in one of the tools packages :)22:49
maxwellianDarxus: You might be interested, or you might have the chops?  Or both? :)22:51
yofelit's still far away from being ready for that, but considering I had pretty much 0 knowledge of launchpadlib 2h ago I'm pretty happy it works :P22:52
yofelstill quite error-prone though :/22:52
Darxusmaxwellian: I might be interested.  Anything is possible.22:53
DarxusRight now the subject is mostly making me angry, which doesn't help.22:54
maxwellianDarxus: Yeah, I hear ya.  Well you can channel that anger into a relentless quest to rid gdm of that behavior once and for all! :)22:56
maxwellianDarxus: First step is to figure out what happens programatically, and why it has to be that way.  The Gnome developers (at least some) are obviously aware of the issue, so if it were a simple fix I'm sure it'd be done by now.22:57
maxwellianDarxus: There are probably complications we're not aware of yet.  But that doesn't have to be a deal breaker.22:57
DarxusI'm sure you could just create a 1mb empty file in /tmp, and if gdm fails to login due to lack of disk space, delete the file and try again.22:57
maxwellianDarxus: There's some mention in the comments of various "duplicates" that the user's home directory is involved in some way.23:00
maxwellianDarxus: But probably the same principle applies.  Not sure how to prevent the user from removing the placeholder...23:02
maxwellianDarxus: Just make it hidden, obviously, and re-create it on login if it's not found (assuming there's enough space)?23:02
DarxusMake it a text file that explains the problem.  And yeah, recreate it on bootup or something.23:06
maxwellianDarxus: Do you have experience building big projects?  I imagine even if we got some kind of patch going, building gdm or gnome-session or whatever is probably not trivial.23:11
phillwhi, just a quick query regarding an earlier email about statuses. Is it possible / desirable to mark a bug as 'closed' as 'won't fix' does sound a bit harsh :-023:12
Darxusmaxwellian: Nah, building ubuntu packages from source is easy.  I did some work on the kernel package.  That thing is nuts.23:13
Darxusphillw: "Harsh" is better when it's true.23:14
maxwellianDarxus: I can only imagine. :P23:14
Darxusmaxwellian: Well, just about all of the kernal image variants are built from a single source package, on top of maintaining an extensive delta from upstream.23:14
phillwwell, in the case of https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/galculator/+bug/588607  it was explained, and accepted. So "won't fix" does seem harsh :-\23:15
ubot2Launchpad bug 588607 in lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "Uninstalling Galculator will uninstall Lubuntu-desktop (affects: 1) (dups: 1) (heat: 111)" [Undecided,Won't fix]23:15
phillwthat seemed more like a FAQ, than a bug - is there not a method to respond to such things?23:16
maxwellianphillw: I think they were better off with the "invalid" tag.23:17
maxwellianphillw: Since it's not a bug.  ("It's a feature." :) )23:17
maxwellianphillw: Won't fix implies something is broken in the first place.23:17
maxwellianDarxus: I don't even know what that means. :P  Anyway, I'm looking around on the web for info on how gdm starts up.23:18
phillwkk, just so as I know, I have updated the wiki page for lubuntu to cover this one, as it does crop up quite often23:19
phillwdunno if I should change it now, after all this time ?23:19
Darxusmaxwellian: It's probably started by upstart, which I haven't figured out yet.  It used to be started by init.23:20
maxwellianphillw: Don't bother with that, no one's looking at that bug anymore.23:20
DarxusWell, I suppose upstart still is init.23:20
maxwellianphillw: But bug #588611, which is a duplicate of the bug you mentioned, was marked invalid.23:21
ubot2Launchpad bug 588611 in lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "Uninstalling Bluetooth will uninstall lubuntu-desktop (dup-of: 588607)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/58861123:21

Darxusmaxwellian: Why are you trying to figure out how gdm starts?23:21
maxwellianDarxus: I don't know the first thing about gdm or how it works, so if I'm going to have any chance at being helpful I need some kind of context. :)23:21
Darxusmaxwellian: Yeah, gdm's parent process ID is 1, which is init.23:22
phillwmaxwellian: I was just about to ask about that one (still learning)23:23
Darxusmaxwellian: Eh, it starts by magic.  You can restart it by running "killall gdm" and if it doesn't restart itself run "/usr/sbin/gdm".23:23
Darxusmaxwellian: It *used* to be that init read stuff rom /etc/rc#.d/ directories, where "#" was the runlevel, and the normal runlevel was something like 3, and there would be a script in that directory named probably "gdm" and that script would basically just run gdm.23:24
DarxusBut in the name of faster boot times, they made it complicated as hell and called the process upstart.23:24
maxwellianphillw: Me too. :)  But I think invalid is better for those bugs, since they are not bugs.  You can look into the "Convert to a question" option, it might be useful to have this kind of thing as an answered question.  But I don't know anything about that.23:25
Darxusinit is the program which ran the scripts from the /etc/rc* directories.  It's just the one program the kernel runs once it finishes loading.23:25
maxwellianDarxus: Right, I've heard of init, and I know a bit about the rc directories and runtime levels.23:25
Darxusmaxwellian: Yeah they're gone now :(23:26
maxwellianDarxus: "Now" meaning...10.04?23:26
maxwellianI'm still on 9.1023:26
DarxusNot sure when it changed.23:27
yofelDarxus: the init script is now in /etc/init and it's called gdm.conf23:28
yofelDarxus: and the app that ran /etc/rc.Xd was init from sys-v-init, we use upstart now23:28
Darxusyofel: Oh, that doesn't look too bad :P23:29
maxwellianDarxus: Glad you like it, that's encouraging. :)23:29
yofelupstart init scripts have a configuration part and the actual script that's being run, proper way to handle them is usually 'sudo service xy restart/start/stop/...'23:30
DarxusI guess the wpa_supplicant has more involved interaction with dbus, which looked messy.23:30
maxwellianyofel: Thanks, I'll have to look into this upstart business.23:31
maxwellianDarxus: The problem may actually be in gnome-session, not gdm...only from what I've read.23:44
