jibelalgnod_, I'd ask him to create a new profile a see if it still occurs.10:49
jibelalgnod_, if he's unable to reproduce it in a reliable way that's hard for a developer to work on a fix.10:50
algnod__true, but what happens to the bug report, do you just mark it as invalid?10:51
algnod__jibel, true, but what happens to the bug report, do you just mark it as invalid?10:52
jibelalgnod_, no ask him to try with a new profile and set it to incomplete, we don't know if it's a user error or a real bug, or a plugin causing the crash.10:52
jibelalgnod_, there's maybe something in .xsession-errors, you can ask him to attach this file next time it's happening10:52
jibelalgnod__, there's maybe something in .xsession-errors, you can ask him to attach this file next time it's happening10:53
algnod__jibel, dumm question, what is  a "new profile"?10:53
jibelalgnod__, it's an empty firefox profile, that means no plugin, no theme, no nothing, it creates a clean firefox session.10:54
jibelalgnod__, there is a specific documentation for firefox at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MozillaTeam/Bugs10:55
algnod__jibel, thanks I will take a look at that10:55
jibelalgnod__, you can manage the firefox profile with "firefox -ProfileManager", be careful to not delete your current profile10:56

skeebyoh yeah15:35
skeebyis there anything i should do to get prepared?15:35
skeebyive read over and signed the code of conduct, read the triage guide, and im on the mailing list for bugsquad15:36
persiaskeeby, You might want to try triaging a few random bugs just to get a feel for the procedures in practice.15:37
persiaAsk here when you're unsure.  But things can get fast or busy during hug days, so sometimes it's harder to get targeted assistance.15:37
skeebyyeah i thats why i figured id get prepared today15:38
skeebyi havent triaged any bugs yet, but ive came across a few of my own after installing 10.10 earlier this week, and provided some feedback on the bugreports that were already listed15:39
charlie-tcaskeeby: this is great information - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpingWithBugs15:41
skeebyim actually looking at that right now15:42
skeebythere was a page i came across yesterday i think that had like 99 hot bugs that have yet to be triaged15:43
skeebydoes that ring a bell?15:43
persiaskeeby, Join #ubuntu-bugs-announce: new bugs show up there, and you can grab one that looks interesting.15:45

charlie-tcaI don't use postfix15:59
skeebyit was part of the qa tools package i downloaded16:00
skeebywhen postfix asks for a system mail name, do i just create my own or is this something i need to find somehwere16:06

micahghggdh: postfix is pulled in automatically by devscripts by default now I think16:10

intraderI ran into (in 10.10) with a security blunder - when you mount fat volumes, you allow .COM, .BAT, and .EXE files to be executable.21:13
persiaintrader, That's semi-intentional, and not enabled by default.21:15
intraderI know, formerly all fat files were executable, but come on, .EXE, .COM, are executable on X86 architectures. Security problem - tell the iranians with their mossad worm21:15
persiaI don't believe WINE yet has sufficient support for most malware, but if it does, and you work with compatible executables, you'll need the same malware detection stuff you'd need in the environment that you're approaching.21:16
intraderpersia, nothing to do with WINE. Just mount a fat volume21:17
persiaFeel free to file a bug if you like.  I don't think there's value in it bring private, but you could get more formal feedback from the security team.21:17
persiaintrader, Doesn't most malware rely on some libraries?21:17
intraderpersia, no, some do. Is there a list for security?21:18
keesintrader: you can easily disable it, but this is a step forward. as persia said, _everything_ was executable before, including exe/com/bat21:18
yofelkees: disable it? how? last time I looked at it showexec was hardcoded in udisks (or I'm too blind to find the setting to override it)21:19
intraderkees, a wrong step forward in my opinion. When a fat is mounted you should then change files with the hash command as first line, to executable would be a solution21:19
persiakees do you highlight on "security" or are you just omniscient?21:20
intraderpersia, no I am just observant21:20
keesintrader: you can't change the perms on a CDROM21:21
keespersia: yeah, I highlight on security :)21:21
keesyofel: lack of configuration on this certainly seems like a problem.21:22
pntanyone running 10.04 that can help me confirm a bug in scanf?21:23
persiapnt, Do you have a simple test program demonstrating it?21:23
pntyeah, hold on21:23
intraderkees, persia, yofel: what's going on? yofel, it looks like I took a step into a beehive21:23
pntint main(int argc, char *argv) { char *buf; scanf("%as", &buf); printf("%s\n", buf); return 0; }21:24
persiaExpected?  Actual?21:24
intraderkees, sorry, not when you mount, when open occurs.21:25
keesintrader: it's part of a long discussion, yes. basically, vfat via CDROM aren't executable. but Wine folks want to be able to run them.21:25
keesintrader: without Wine, those programs are pretty meaningless, so it's not a big deal if you don't have Wine. if you do, well, it's just like anything else, don't run binaries you don't trust.21:26
persiapnt, I get some warnings during compilation, but it seems to do what it says on the box.21:26
pntpersia, i expect it to allocated a string and store the result21:26
persiakees, I think intrader's point is that if one has an executable .COM that requires no libraries (pure machine code), and one attempts to execute it, it might execute.21:26
keespersia: right, but that's no different than inserting an ext3 usb stick that has exec perms21:27
intraderkees, to watch out for binaries you don't trust makes sense, but for the system to make .COM and .EXE executable, well that is another thing21:27
persiakees, Absolutely.21:28
persiaintrader, The trick is a balance between helping the user not shoot themselves in the foot and allowing them to trim their toenails with firearms.21:28
intraderpersia, you are right. The problem arouse when I copied a shell file to execute smalltalk's pharo, and in 10.10 it no longer works because .sh files are not executable in the context menu (in fact in 10.10, it offers no context option to 'Open' a shell file)21:30
pntanyone running 10.04 with  libc6-i686 2.11.1-0ubuntu7.2 ??21:30
pntplease message me if you are running said config and can help confirm a bug in scanf21:31
keespnt: I can be; what's the output you get?21:31
pntkees: see priv msg21:32
keespnt: let's stay here, in case other people want to join in. :)21:33
keespnt: it works fine for me.21:33
pnt#include <stdio.h>21:33
pnt#include <stdlib.h>21:33
pnt#include <errno.h>21:33
pnt#include <unistd.h>21:33
pntint main(int argc, char *argv)21:33
pnt{ char *buf; scanf("%as", &buf); printf("%s\n", buf); return 0;21:33
pnttry to run that21:33
pntyou should be able to type a string and have it printed back21:34
keespnt: right, it works fine for me.21:34
keespnt: what behavior are you seeing?21:34
yofelworks fine without the #includes, but with them I get garbage back21:34
pntwhat does it look like if you do ldd on the a.out?21:34
pntim getting crap back21:35
intraderyofel, nothing has bee assigned to buf21:35
pntlet me try it without the includes21:35
pntyeah, works without the includes21:35
yofelintrader: shouldn't scanf assign it? (I don't have much c experience..)21:35
keespnt: you're not checking the result of the scanf21:35
pnti'll see what one is screwing it up21:36
yofelstdio.h is messing it up21:36
intraderyofel, I am not sure of this, but argv should be assigned to buf.21:36
pntyeah, stdio21:36
keespnt: compile with -Wall21:36
yofelintrader: the app reads from stdin, not the parameters21:37
intraderI have not done C in 20 years at least21:37
pntyeah, see that, fixed it21:37
pntstdio is still messing it up though21:37
yofelkees: what's '#define _GNU_SOURCE' btw?21:40
yofelhey BUGabundo21:40
keesyofel: makes all the extra fun things in glibc available21:41
keesyofel: it's just part of my standard boiler plate21:41
keespnt: can you pastebin the program you're using that breaks?21:42
pntkees: #define _GNU_SOURCE fixes it21:42
keespnt: the "real" cause is the lack of return code checking on the scanf call :)21:42
keespnt: without _GNU_SOURCE this happens if you check the return:21:43
kees$ ./scanf21:43
keesDid not read a string21:43
pnti agree about the error checking and all, but it shouldn't be failing :)21:43
pntwith the error checking21:46
keespnt: the "a" is a GNU extension.22:04
* yofel completely missed the a..22:08
=== yofel_ is now known as yofel
