rusiviSeemed part and parcel...00:51
hggdhrusivi: the dell project is not Ubuntu, is it?00:54
rusiviThought they would find interest in it00:54
hggdhnot enough... we cannot open tasks for unrelated projects00:55
rusiviThe Dell Project's bugs have (Ubuntu) in them00:56
rusiviSeems highly related.00:56
hggdhrusivi: correlation is not causation01:02
hggdhthe bug already had a linux task, which, BTW, is correct01:03
hggdhwhy add another one, for a project you do NOT know what is about?01:03
hggdhactually, why _did_ you add another one?01:03
hggdhworse still, I had just told you not to do it :-(01:04
rusivihggdh: Not trying to tangle with you, I felt and feel I did the right thing. Worst case they "Invalid" it.01:04
hggdhrusivi: you did NOT do the right thing.01:05
rusivihggdh: As I respect your opinion as fellow community member, may I please have more information on why my actions were not the best way to go?01:06
persiarusivi, if there is uncertainty, always err on the side of sending fewest notifications.01:08
rusiviI felt no uncertainty in my actions.01:08
persiaAdding tasks on random projects tends to err on the other side (as you end up notifying all the bug contacts for that other project).01:08
persiaOK.  What is the Dell project about?01:09
ubot2Launchpad bug 550028 in linux (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "Dell Mini 9 Hibernate does not work (affects: 3) (heat: 25)" [Undecided,Expired]01:09
persiaThat doesn't answer my question.01:09
rusiviWell in the comments of that bug it mentions information not on the front page of the project.01:10
rusiviPersia: The answer to your question is, it depends on where you look.01:10
hggdhand? What is the project about?01:10
persiarusivi, No.  the project is definitely about something.  if you have to look, you don't know yet.01:11
persiaIt may be that this bug is interesting to them, but it is *their* responsibility to find out about it, if it is.01:11
persiaIt may be that "The Dell Project" is intended only to support some small number of specific devices.01:11
rusivipersia: np I'll refrain from adding them in the future.01:11
persiaIt may be that "The Dell Project" is someone's commercial support project.01:12
persiaWe usually don't know.01:12
hggdhrusivi: please do so. Consider this a warning01:12
rusivihggdh: No offense was intended, my apologies.01:12
persiarusivi, It's not about that specific project: the key is to focus on the bugs *in Ubuntu*.  If you *know* that some specific package is affected, and you *know* that this package belongs to some specific upstream proejct, and you *tested* to confirm the bug also exists upstream, then (and only then) is it is appropriate to file the bug in their project.01:13
hggdhrusivi: no offense received. I am just despairing of telling you one thing, and seeing you disregard it01:13
rusivihggdh: I already did it before you said not too.01:13
persiaMost of the time it's *lots* easier to just work with the bug in Ubuntu and track down the problem in Ubuntu, and once a solution is fairly obvious, leave it for a developer.01:13
persia(or someone who has a close interest in the specific package, and is working closely with developers)01:14
rusivipersia / hggdh: lesson learned. Won't do so moving forward.01:14

intraderAnyone, I am looking into inconsistencies of the manner in which 10.10 is treating shells scripts (like Pharo.sh).  I have just tried OpenSolaris, Fedora, Mandriva, ubuntu 9.04 and mint. They all show a context menu of 'Open' for this script file. Ubuntu 10.10 does not - Further all those distributions load the Pharo IDE without problem. When I change the property of the file to executable, then the context menu shows 'Open',04:53
intrader  the execution does not open the IDE.04:53
intrader#ubuntu+1 tells me that the reason is changes in gnome.04:54
intraderBy the way, the latest update to 10.04 make it work the same as 10.10.04:55
skeebyhey all05:28
mrandHowdy skeeby05:33
JanCintrader: sounds like this might be related to the new security policy (non-executable files should be non-executable)06:52
skeebywhen marking a new bug as a dupe, should i change the status to reflect the parent bug?06:58
persiaskeeby, We generally don't bother.07:00

skeebyyeah i dont wanna have a status war with someone within the first handful of bugs i started triaging =X07:14
persiaAnd especially not with someone with that history of bug reporting :)07:14
persiaMy recommendation would be to try to reproduce with the steps komputes provided.  If you can or can't, share your experience on the bug.07:15
skeebywell im running 10.10 atm, so my results may be irrelevant07:15
persiaNo, they would be very relevant.  If it happens for komputes in 10.04 but doesn't happen for you in 10.10, then it's only a Lucid bug, and fixed in Maverick.07:15
persia(and, technically, 10.10 doesn't exist yet)07:16
skeebygood point07:16
persiakomputes tends to be a good bug reporter, so this makes a good opportunity to work deep triage with someone cooperative :)07:16
skeebyyeah i def reproduced computes problem07:38
persiaskeeby, Excellent.  What ought you do next to the bug?07:41
skeebyconfirm it07:41
skeebymark importance to probably med?07:41
ubot2You can learn about setting bug importance at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Importance07:41
skeebyaye im reading it atm07:42
persiaSo, based on those definitions, why "Medium"?07:42
skeebywell it effects the recovery console07:43
skeebyhowever a reboot is a the workaround07:43
skeebywhich could be considered easy07:44
skeebymaybe low...07:44

skeebyi would lean toward low would you agree with that assessment?07:45
skeebyproblem with hw07:46
skeebyor core packages07:46
persiaPerhaps described as "cannot boot"?  if so, would a reboot work?07:46
persiaskeeby, Anyway, I'd probably agree with "Medium", but wanted to go through the exercise of why that makes a good choice :)07:49
skeebyoh definitely07:50
skeebyim new to the process too so it definitely helps07:50
skeebyi appreciate it07:50
persiaSo go ahead and set those values.07:50
skeebyi need to set status to "triaged" to set importance07:54
skeebyid say it could still use a little more feedback before taking it to the next step07:55
persiaI'd say "confirmed", rather than "triaged".  You don't yet know why it does that, just that it does on two different installs (so it's probably an Ubuntu issue rather than just being komputes' computer)07:56
skeebykompute seems to know what hes doin so ill follow his lead =p07:58
persiaOK.  Don't forget to set the Importance.07:58
persiaskeeby, ?08:01
skeebyi cant modify it08:01
persiaOK.  So what does the wiki suggest folk who can't (yet) modify importance do?08:01
skeebyah i thought i had permission as a bugsquad member08:03
persiaNope.  permission to modify importance is bugcontrol08:03

vishthat needs to be on the importance page as well, and somewhere more generic08:34

vishpersia: weird.. screenshot pls? i see monospaced fonts there.. i dint want to use bold08:52
persiavish, also, I'd suggest putting that at the bottom of the page: most folk would do well to read about importances before setting them (as most users of that page are likely to be bug submitters wondering what we meant or bug control members trying to determine the right Importance)08:52

intrader_I am following up on a possible deficiency of 10.10 RC - in this distribution shell scripts must be set to executable before the context menu offers the 'Open' (with dialog to confirm that you want to execute a script). This is contrary to normal ubuntu and unix practice18:43
intrader_I must be logged in at home as well - pardon the '_'18:44
devildanteintrader_: maybe it's a developer decision?18:45
intrader_devildante: how so?18:45
devildanteI mean, maybe the devs decided to remove that dialog when the script is not executable?18:46
intrader_devildante: 10.10 RC does not offer the 'Open' if the script does not have the executable bit on. The new version does offer the 'Open' and the dialog if the script file is flagged as executable.18:47

AlexzAKhggdh: I thinked first set-to-triaged, second alert-developers...20:12
hggdhAlexzAK: indeed, it could go to triaged20:12
hggdhAlexzAK: but the maintainers of mascyma are at Debian, not here -- so I would rather only set it triaged when we have a debian bug on it20:13
AlexzAKhggdh: ok. I understand it. Thanx!20:14
pjkis i2c kernel errors known for usb dvb devices ?20:14
hggdhAlexzAK: mascyma is sync-ed from Debian, we did not make any local changes. So... the developer, or rather, maintainer, is in Debian20:14
pjkkernel is :  2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu20:15
AlexzAKhggdh: I agree with you. Just cleared it. I'll go to sleep now. See ya.20:16

drizztbsdHi, I'm the leader of an embedded development team. We use ubuntu as our development platform, the problem is that ubuntu maverick has a SERIOUS bug in tar ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tar/+bug/652183 ) that does not allow us to do the migration to 10.10. Should you fix it before the release?21:00

yofelhm, 631130 is the master bug so it's not hidden, the other one is hidden, but the other one indeed doesn't show anything specific about nvidia21:37
yofeland njin isn't here currently21:37
intraderyofel, its title is misleading as it implied that maverick has performance problems21:38
yofelhm, actually... that bug says that maverick is slower than lucid, while you say that lucid is slower than before21:38
yofelwell, wait for an answer or ping njin when he's here as he marked that bug as a dup21:39
intraderyofel, I see how the master bug relationship. So 631130 is not hidden as I feared. Maverick is not slower than lucid, the reverse is true for me21:39
intraderyofel, so far maverick is much, much better than 10.04 - has a problem which I reported in bug 652283.21:42
ubot2intrader: Bug 652283 on http://launchpad.net/bugs/652283 is private21:42
yofelcan't see that one, leave it private. (unretraced crash?)21:43
intraderyofel, related to the execution of scripts including classification of .EXE, .BAT, and .COM as executable scripts21:44
yofelah, that one21:45
intraderyofel, the .EXE 'capability' would immediately enable attacks on maverick21:45
yofelI remember the discussion we had now21:45
intraderyofel, yeah - good that you are around!21:46
yofelintrader: did you post any private information on that bug?21:47
intraderyofel, do you know how I can review 652283 - I would like to remove the security component from that bug report and make a new report from it.21:48
skeebyif its marked as dupe the master bug may be private?21:48
skeebyi may also be jumping into the conversation at a bad time >_<21:48
yofelskeeby: the dup and this bug have nothing to do with each other21:49
yofel(and bugs may be marked as duplicates of private bugs, the retracer does that all the time)21:49
intraderskeeby, np - it is related to two bug reports 631130 and 65228321:49
intraderyofel, I don't see a way in launchpad to search to bring up a bug report back21:51
ojap@hggdh hello21:52
meetingology`ojap: Error: "hggdh" is not a valid command.21:52
hggdhhi ojap21:52
ojap:hggdh hello, just trying to work out how to send a direct message21:54
intraderyofel, by the way how do I upgrade from beta to RC?21:54
yofelojap: '/msg hggdh ...' for a private message, if you're searching from there21:55
skeebyintrade, do u get artifacting when viewing images in webpages as part of your slow performance?21:55
yofelintrader: if you have installed all updates you're already running the beta21:55
skeebymaybe artifacting isnt the word im looking for, "image scroll lag" maybe?21:56
yofelbeta and rc are nothing more than daily snapshots with milestone names21:56
yofel*already running the rc21:56
intraderskeeby, on 10.04 yes (slight jittering - and the 'encouragement' to drag event when mouse is not down)21:56
skeebyi was noticing this problem when i updated to 10.10 and had to disable my visual effects, but as an overall performance decrease i cant really say21:57
skeebyi havent ran anything previous to 10.0421:57
intraderyofel, 10.10 has not informed me of any updates - the version I running is beta - there is a RC available21:58
skeebyif theres no updates for the beta21:59
intraderskeeby, misleading title on duplicate of 631130 - maverick is much better compared to 10.04 - no problems except bug 65228321:59
ubot2intrader: Bug 652283 on http://launchpad.net/bugs/652283 is private21:59
skeebythen u have the current RC as far as i know, thats how i understand it21:59
yofelintrader: you're running today's maverick with all updates? then that's the RC21:59
skeebyill have to wait till that one gets looked over to check out that bug21:59
intraderyofel, I have not noticed any updates since a couple of days ago - so I assume I am running 10.10 beta22:00
yofelpeople always think the milestones are something exceptional, but they're only names for the maverick archive on the specific date, so iso testing and stuff can be handled easier22:00
intraderyofel, should I run `sudo apt-get upgrade`?22:01
yofelintrader: if you want to make sure, run 'sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade'22:02
skeebyintrader, lol u broke your mouse22:03
intraderyofel, I will do that now. It should not hurt. Except it may take time22:03
intraderskeeby, I still have it running around the room!22:04
intraderskeeby, what is rofl - I am a newbie to these terms22:06
yofelrolling on the floor laughing22:06
intraderyofel, skeeby: rofl22:06
intraderyofel, update of eclipse taking its time!22:07
yofelI can imaging that22:08

skeebyive been reading the wiki and came across https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures, but i dont see much that would help debugging the recovery mode problems described. any feedback is appreciated22:36
skeebyintrader, in your new bug you mention that you dont have to check the "executable" option for .exe files. is that correct?22:40
mrandskeeby: I believe every bootup (not just recovery mode) results in a text login - it's just that when a graphical window manager is enabled, it switches to that at some point.  Have you already verified the linux bootline is correct for recovery mode (compare it against non-recovery mode)?22:40
skeebywell this bug is an actual regression.  persia was helping me with it last night.22:44
kklimondaskeeby: you can't open .exe files by double clicking them by default - even if they have +x bit set22:44
kklimondaintrader: skeeby: also, as I've mentioned yesterday the change mentioned in 652470 has most likely be done by the upstream22:45
kklimondaand, as it' fits our Security Policy, the chance to change that on our own is pretty slim.22:46
kklimonda(when I right-click on .exe I get "open with archive manager" and today has been the first time I've tried that so it;s probably the default behaviour)22:47
hggdhintrader: do you have wine installed?22:49
kklimonda(for the reference check https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/Policies#Execute-Permission%20Bit%20Required)22:50
hggdhkklimonda: it is expected -- .bat, .exe, etc are worked on by wine22:51
skeebymrand, the bug is actually a regression beginning with 10.04.  unless the functionality was purposefully removed for some reason (which i do not know), GDM should still be able to start22:51
hggdhif you have wine, double-clicking should work22:51
kklimondahggdh: they are applications, just as any othe rapplications they should follow the policy22:51
kklimondahggdh: a malicious wine application can do as much a damage as a native one22:52
skeebymrand, i was working with persia on this last night, reproduced it myself before i confirmed it. i havent been able to work with kompute yet though, just tryin to get mroe info on it22:52
kklimondahggdh: by default wine prefix has a z: drive symlinked to /22:52
mrandskeeby: yeah, I saw.  Just trying to give you some ideas on where to look.22:52
skeebymrand, what are u refering to when u say the bootline?22:53
kklimondahggdh: also /usr/bin/cautious-launcher has been made for wine explicitly :)22:53
skeebyim not familiar with that, or im having a brainfart22:53
kklimonda(it checks if .exe has a +x bit set and refuses to launch it otherwise)22:54
mrandskeeby: I guess it is more properly "boot option configuration line", according to this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions22:55
hggdhkklimonda: yes22:55
hggdhskeeby: I have the same behaviour, just never bothered about it. It is a bug, indeed22:56
hggdhplease open (right now) against linux, this will collect all necessary data22:56
=== yofel_ is now known as yofel
skeebymrand, so youre say it may be a problem with the default boot options for recovery mode?22:58
mrandskeeby: yep.  I'm saying I would check there first, since I believe that may be one control point for that behavior.22:59
BUGabundoevening everyone23:00
kees21:44 < kklimonda> skeeby: you can't open .exe files by double clicking them by default - even if they have +x bit set23:00
kees^^ that's not true.23:00
keesyou can only double-click IF they have +x23:00
kees(only yeah, you need wine installed)23:01
skeebymrand, /boot/grub/menu.lst , so would u suggest making that an attachment for the bug?23:01
kklimondakees: hmm, so I have something broken :)23:01
skeebyyeah mine dont open by default either23:01
=== ivoks-afk is now known as ivoks
skeebyunless i check the executable part23:01
kklimondawell, it doesn't work for me anyway23:02
kklimondawhich is weird - I haven't had wine installed till now23:02
kklimondainteresting - I have this in /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache:23:03
mrandskeeby: I don't know if you need to blindly attach it... I'm guessing it is the same as other users if this problem is reproducible.  if you have time, I was suggesting studying the options to see if that is perhaps the cause.23:03
kklimondaand file-roller does associate itself with application/x-ms-dos-executable mimetype..23:04
skeebyok im not too familiar with those options myself23:04
hggdhskeeby: did you change your Grub2 configuration? If not, don't worry about it23:05
skeebyand i cant even copy a backup for it for some reason... trying to copy it to a backup file produces "cannot stat /boot/grub/menu.lst"23:05
skeebyno i havent messed with it23:05
hggdhskeeby: what version of Ubuntu?23:05
skeebyits the default config, an dim in 10.1023:05
hggdhskeeby: OK. I have the same thing (as I said earlier)23:06
hggdhso, right now, (1) boot into recoevery mode; (2) exit recovery mode -- you should eventually get either the GDM screen or a login prompt;23:07
hggdh(3) if GDM, no problems, done; (4) if console login, login as you, and then 'sudo start gdm' <- this will give you GDM;23:08
hggdh(5) on a terminal (under GDM) run 'ubuntu-bug linux'23:08
hggdhand open the bug. I doubt this is a linux issue, but it will collect all possible data23:09
skeebyis that gonna creat a new bug report?23:09
hggdhskeeby: yes23:09
skeebyis there a way to just append the info to the current, or will i have to mark it as a dupe23:10
mrandaccording to that bootoptions page, "-s or s or single" diables gdm23:10
hggdhif you already have one, then run on a terminal 'ubuntu-bug xxxxx' where xxxxx is your bug number23:10
hggdhskeeby: but you MUST have booted in recovery mode23:10

skeebyto determine the cause23:12
skeebyi mean, determining the cause is the next step right? lol23:13
hggdhskeeby: indeed. But collecting data will not help it any -- unless *you* are working to find out what it is23:14
skeebywell *trying* to23:14
hggdhwe know how to reproduce -- and (at least for me) it is very easy: boot in recovery mode, exit recovery mode23:15
skeebypretty new to debugging linux though23:15
hggdhskeeby: so, it is possible init is not running gdm when exiting recovery23:15
hggdhor an init state is not set23:16
skeebytrying to set init state manually does not work either23:16
hggdhone chance is to boot setting init to debug, and -- then, I agree -- saving the data23:16
hggdhbut saving data now will not help much, a developer can easily reproduce it23:17
skeebyoh ok i get what you are saying23:17
skeebyso if its easily reproduced like that no additional info is needed?23:17
hggdhright now, no additional info. There *might* be a need for more data later, after someone starts working on it; but then the request will be much more directed23:18
hggdhskeeby: even more, the bug is already Confirmed23:19
skeebyso pretty much someone from bug control just needs to mark as triage and send it away?23:19
hggdhyes, but there is no need here -- friendly-recovery is a package created by us23:22

hggdhskeeby: you are welcome. Thank YOU for helping23:27
skeebyjust doin my best to make sure my contributions dont make things worse =p23:27
persiahggdh, Just in case the background was missing: skeeby is the person who confirmed 651782 and was digging towards triage at my suggestion (although, yes, it's hard)23:43
hggdhpersia: oh. I did not know23:43
hggdhpersia: I think a good start would be to set 'init=/sbin/init --debug' on grub, and boot to recovery23:44
