mendebrockI downloaded the latest Ubuntu desktop CD image to re-perform the "free software only" test. The test ran OK for me but, after checking a few other things in the new install, found that the Ubuntu help system was printing lots of garbage characters. Has this happened to anybody else?02:11
mendebrockMore importantly, are we supposed to be reporting bugs like these, or only if there are issues with the specified test case?02:13
persiaFile a bug as oe normally does.  if one is verifying specific media, it's best to also update the ISO tracker, but for normal daily exercise of the test cases, normal bugs are fine.02:18
mendebrockThanks persia!02:19
aragood morning all!07:43
mvoara: good morning! I can confirm the netbook slowness :/07:44

aramvo, can you set the bug as confirmed, then?  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/64663807:45

arathere are also some feedback in the testing tracker from other people: http://pairwise.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/result/4556/82307:46
mvoara: for netbooks too? or does that happen on other machines (that are also slow)?07:48
aramvo, I don't know, because not all of them report the targeted system07:48
arathere are other person with a dell mini 9 reporting 3.5 hours07:49
mvohm, its odd, its not memory, I can do test VM upgrade with 768 mb in < 1h07:55

alouriehi ara09:26
alourieara: I love the new site btw09:27
alourieit's a long overdue :-)09:27
araalourie, thansk :)09:27
alourieara: do you need any help with the community report for QA?09:40
araalourie, community report?09:41
alouriefrom jono's post09:41
alourieit seems that you have the QA part09:41
* alourie is looking for ways to do something useful09:41
araalourie, let me read the post (he talked to me about it, but I hadn't seen the post yet09:43
alourieah, ok09:44
arajibel, I am afraid that I won't be able to provide more information on the dell mini 9, today it does not boot, nothing happens, something in the hw seems to have broken09:50
araalourie, it would be great if you could send me an email answering the questions about the new member feedback09:51

jibelara, :(09:55
jibelara, anyway it seems that mvo was able to reproduce the problem.09:55
arajibel, it is weird, it does not do anything, it is like it does not have battery, but it is plugged09:55
arajibel, any idea?09:55
jibelara, don't know. Did you try with AC only with the battery removed ?09:59
arajibel, yes, I tried almost everything :)09:59
jibelara, :) I'm afraid that I won't be of any help then10:00
arajibel, :)10:00
arajibel, thanks anyway10:00
arajibel, I will talk to someone on the kernel team to see if they have any idea10:00
jibelara, you're able to power it on or not ?10:01
arajibel, nope :(10:01
jibelara, the AC is working ?10:02
jibelara, I mean the power supply10:02
arajibel, what do you mean?10:03
jibelara, I mean the tiny box that you usually plug to wall to transform the power and bring it to the netbook. Is it working ?10:04
arajibel, how could I know? (or I am not understanding you...)10:05
jibelara, this thing: http://images.bizrate.com/resize?sq=225&uid=1692649304 . Is there a green led or some indicator on it showing that it is working ?10:08
arajibel, I cannot tell, as the ac does not have a led, and the battery charging led on the mini 9 never worked10:09
jibelara, that's becoming hard to investigate, you don't have a multimeter ?10:15
arajibel, no, apw gave me some tricks that I am trying now10:15
jibelara, or a spare AC or spare battery ?10:15
arajibel, no, and no :(10:15
jibelara, well, I'm sorry, I can't help much then.10:17
arajibel, no worries :-) thanks anyway10:18
jibelmvo, will you be able to run the tests for bug 64663810:18

davmor2morning all10:52
davmor2ara: anything exciting on this week?10:52
arahey davmor2!10:52
aradavmor2, well, if RC is not exciting enough... what would be?10:53
davmor2ara: maverick une wifi died on me after the last linux update11:04
aradavmor2, :(11:05
aradavmor2, did you report?11:05
davmor2only found out this morning after I've finished resetting up my system so I can get some work done I'm reporting then11:05
jibelmvo, I think the upgrade slowness is caused by dpkg or ext4. The unpack operation should last less than 10s. Is there something specific on the harddrive side of your netbook ?11:38
alourieara: I can email you the answers, but I'm hardly "new" in this...11:51
araalourie, so you are perfect for it ;-)11:51
araalourie, try to remember when you started11:51
alourie2 years ago? :-)11:51
araalourie, mmm, true, maybe it is too long ago, the documentation back then was very different11:52
arajibel, apw solved my issue! my dell mini 9 is back to life! it's alive!! hahahaha!! IT'S ALIVE!!11:53
jibelara, FANTASTIC! and what was the problem ?11:54
ara<apw>i would recommend leaving battery and charger out and try switching it on, then leaving it for a few mins11:54
ara<ara> without battery or charger?11:54
ara<apw> sometimes the EC can crash on those machines, we had one at sprint do that, and doing that some bit of it started working again11:54
ara yeah without either, to discharge the capacitors11:54
jibelara, cool. Remember me to not purchase that hardware ;)11:56
alourieara: I'll answer anyway then11:57
mvojibel: thanks a lot, I try ext3 next, it will be the ext4 fs just mounted as ext3, is that still ok?12:29
mvojibel: or will that invalidate the test?12:29
mvojibel: I don't think there is anything specific to the hdd, its a stock wd blue 320gb harddisk12:30
mvojibel: its not fast, but should not be that slow :)  I will post more data and then we maybe get a clue from that12:31
alourieara: is there a way to "fetch" a new qa site?12:34
araalourie, I am not sure I understand your queestion12:34
* ara finds IRC communication tricky today ;-)12:34
alourieara: well, if I wanted to make changes to the site, how would I do that?12:36
araalourie, depending on the change. What change would you like to do?12:36
alouriewell, not me directly and right away12:38
alourieI'm going over the site and...how would I say it12:39
alourieI think it can be better12:39
alouriefor example12:39
araalourie, the way to report is filing a bug against https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-qa-website/12:40
arausing the qa-website tag12:40
alouriethe main page is a planet. That would surprise a user that comes to find out about what QA in Ubuntu is.12:40
alourieara: well, it seems that I am still in that "improving for community" mode...12:41
alouriesorry :-)12:41
araalourie, don't be! feedback is more than welcome12:41
araso the way to do it is through bug reports12:41
arawe will have a session in UDS to ask for feedback and ways to improve it12:42
ara(don't be was an answer to your "sorry" not the "improving", of course)12:42
alourieara: :-) sure12:42
alouriemy feedback is subjective though12:43
araalourie, sure, that's why we will discuss it during UDS :)12:43

gbuonfiglioHi. I need some guidance on a problem I'm having with window decorations in Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook edition when running a regular Gnome Session.13:51
alourieara: something like this bug 64882913:51
ubot4Launchpad bug 648829 in ubuntu-qa-website "The landing page should not be a planet (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/64882913:51
gbuonfigliowhen I start the Gnome session in FailSafe mode, everything is perfect.13:52
gbuonfigliobut when I start in "normal Gnome Session", I get no window controls and menus on applications where these items appears on top bar of the new Netbook edition GUI.13:53
gbuonfiglioI've already deleted gnome-session directory, changed from "no effects" to normal and extra effects, but nothing helped.13:54
gbuonfiglioAny ideas?13:54
jibelmvo, I think mounting the fs as ext3 is fine. what is noticeable is that ara used a ssd and you are using a hdd with the same result.14:01
jibelmvo, cjwatson will have more insight than me on this issue.14:01
gbuonfigliolooks the same of my problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/metacity/+bug/58841914:15

gbuonfiglioabout bug 588419, I've just tried with a new user and first login at Gnome Desktop and had the same problem. Also I've found something new. When closing the session it did not return to gdm and I had to ctrl+alt+sysreq+reisub to reboot.14:48
