drew212vish: are you around?05:07
mistryniteshfor sound related issues like headphones not working, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/FindRightPackage#Sound asks to file the bug against 'alsa-base' package. However, http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/alsa-base asks bug to be filed against 'alsa-driver'. Does wiki needs updating? Also launchpad does not have 'alsa-base' in it search list of packages that can be assigned to a bug in ubuntu.06:26
persia"alsa-driver" is the source package that generates the "alsa-base" binary package.06:33
persia`ubuntu-bug alsa-base` will correctly file a bug against the "alsa-driver" source package.06:33
mistryniteshbut if someone has filed a bug without specifying the package, and I want to assign it, then I have two different suggestions at these two resources.06:34
persiaIt's the same thing.06:35
mistryniteshactually i was looking at a list of bugs without package specified and trying to assign bugs to appropriate package06:35
persiaRight, but "alsa-base" and "alsa-driver" are the same package from the viewpoint of LP bugs (which tracks source packages).06:37
persiaIt's important to tell folk to file their bug with `ubuntu-bug alsa-base` to collect the right information.06:37
persiaThat ends up being tracked in launchpad under https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+bugs06:38
mistryniteshyes, like in bug 659200, the reporter did not specify the package06:38
ubot2Launchpad bug 659200 in alsa-driver (Ubuntu) "No headphone sound after upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 (affects: 1) (heat: 8)" [Undecided,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/65920006:38
persiaAnd you set it.  Good job.06:38
mistryniteshso checking the wiki page I gave 'alsa-base' in the package field, but launchpad gave it 'alsa-driver' and returned the message "'alsa-base' is a binary package. This bug has been assigned to its source package 'alsa-driver' instead."06:39
persiaYou might find the output of `apt-cache showsrc alsa-base` interesting as further information about this.06:40
mistryniteshso my point is, should wiki be modified to say 'alsa-driver' directly? For whatever it is worth06:40
persiaBecause the binary package actually installed on user systems is "alsa-base".06:41
persiaThat the source package ("alsa-driver") has a different name isn't important.06:41
persiaBut if one runs `ubuntu-bug alsa-driver`, apport will point out that the "alsa-driver" package isn't installed, which is expected, as it doesn't exist as a binary package.06:41
mistryniteshok, got it... because the ubuntu-bug will have to use the binary package06:41
mistryniteshthanks persia for clarifying06:42
persiaThanks for helping make sure all the bugs are assigned to the right packages.06:42
mistryniteshhope it doesn't bother too much on the channel, but since I am 'technically' challenged, I find it imperative to double check here06:44
persiaNo, it's really appreciated, for a few reasons.06:48
persiaFirstly, lots of other people may be unsure, and too shy to ask.  Secondly, it's better to ask here before committing the change to launchpad and sending mail to a bunch of folk that can never be unsent.  Thirdly, it helps build your interactions with others, so you folk consider you part of bugsquad and you feel connected to them: this will help a lot when you apply for bug control.06:50
* mistrynitesh is wondering if he will ever be able to join bug control06:54
mistryniteshnow that you have encouraged me so much, I am going to spam this channel for a while :P07:05
mistryniteshfor bug 659668, i intend to assign it to 'linux' and ask the reporter to do the following: "Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we can't fix it without more information.07:06
ubot2Launchpad bug 659668 in ubuntu "Ubuntu does not suspend for Lenovo Thinkpad T500 (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/65966807:06
mistryniteshPlease run the following command which will attach necessary information:07:06
mistryniteshapport-collect 65966807:06
mistryniteshBear in mind that you may need to install the python-launchpadlib package from the universe repository with 'sudo apt-get install python-launchpadlib'. Additionally, when prompted to give apport-collect permissions for Launchpad you will need to give it at least the ability to "Change Non-Private" data as it will be adding information to your bug report.07:06
mistryniteshWe would also like to know if you are facing this problem for the first time in 10.10 or did you have same issues in 10.04 as well (in case you were using 10.04 before installing 10.10)?07:06
mistryniteshsorry that was unintended. I just copied the text from launchpad :(07:08
persiaAssigning to linux makes sense.  Asking the reporter to submit details if you don't have the same T500 makes sense.  Too much text in the channel isn't ideal :)07:09
persiaOften, when asking for confirmation of a specific response, it's best to point to an entry in the wiki or use the pastebin.07:09
RedSingularityAnyone know when the next bug meeting is?07:12
mistryniteshI am using the launchpad-improvment scripts. It makes life really easy07:12
persiaRedSingularity, They tend to happen about monthly, but it's rarely worth waiting for one for most issues.07:13
persiaRedSingularity, Why do you ask?07:13
RedSingularitypersia: I know there was one today but I couldnt attend.  I want to make sure I attend the next one.07:15
persiaDo you have something specific you want to raise at it, or just curious what happened?07:16
RedSingularityJust curious07:16
persiaAttendance at the meetings is very much not required, or I'd be in trouble with my membership in Bug Control :)07:16
persiaThere's logs at irclogs.ubuntu.com07:16
RedSingularityOh ok, I thought it was a requirement.  I will have a look at the logs though.  Thanks :)07:17
persiaI think I manage to make maybe two meetings a year.  I do check the agendas, and read the logs though: if I have something to say that wasn't represented in the meeting, I'll share it, and if I have input I think is essential to go into a meeting I'll ask someone else to please mention it.07:22
persiaBut 90% of the time just sending something to the mailing list is enough: the meeting is mostly only useful for quick summaries, discussion of stuff that got stalled, or cleanly handling arguments about how to implement something.07:23
mistryniteshif a reporter complains about poor sound quality in the latest release and not 'no sound', should it be assigned to 'linux' or 'alsa-base'? also should the reporter be asked to apport-collect the bug?07:32
persia"poor sound quality" needs a lot more information.07:35
persiaIt's usually alsa-base, and once set, needs apport-collect, but there are corner cases.07:35
persiaI saw a libmad bug recently where only libmad caused sound quality issues (now fixed).07:36
persiaMake sure the bug details precisely what the user did to create the "poor sound quality" experience.07:36
persiaAttempt to replicate that.  If you can, and you have different hardware, then start looking at other sound generation techniques.07:37
RedSingularitypersia:  If i am looking for someone in particular to look at a bug can i send a message out on the mailing list.  For example someone who works with transmission.07:37
persiaIf you can't, then go the alsa-base route.07:37
persiaRedSingularity, There's no such set of folks reliably.  We don't have maintainers in Ubuntu, and we use self-selection to indicate which bugs interest us.  Everyone interested in bugs in transmission will already be subscribed to any bug with a transmission task, and have been notified about it.07:38
RedSingularitypersia:  I can subscribe to all bugs that have to do with update-manager?07:38
persiaRedSingularity, Yep.07:39
* persia digs up the link07:39
* RedSingularity waits07:40
persiahttps://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bugs : on the upper right there ought be a "subscribe to bug mail" link.07:40
persiaThat should get you autosubscribed to all messages about update-manager bugs.07:40
RedSingularityAh very nice!  Thanks so much.  This makes looking for them a lot easier!07:41
persiaRedSingularity, Happy to help.  The central guiding principle of bugsquad is ASK!  There's almost always someone here who knows the answer (although I think none of us have all the answers).07:43
persiaAnd when there isn't, there's usually someone who knows how to get it.07:43
RedSingularityI have found that to be the case here.  Its great.  I dont even log out of IRC anymore because thats where all the answers are.07:44
RedSingularitypersia:  Can you mark a Wishlist item for me?  If you consider it worthy of course.08:05
persiaWishlist isn't about worthiness :)  Which bug?08:08
RedSingularitybug 65969608:08
ubot2Launchpad bug 659696 in update-manager (Ubuntu) "Terminal screen grows too big (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/65969608:08
persia(and it's best practice to ask "could someone please mark bug #nnnn wishlist: ${why it ought be wishlist}", rather than highlighting an individual)08:08
persiaRedSingularity, I won't.  The request from the user is clearly wishlist, but is at odds with every other user.08:09
RedSingularitypersia:  what do you mean?08:10
persiaWhat is needed is detailed information about the user's environment: the resolution, DPI, current drag size of the terminal about which they complain, etc.08:10
persiaIf the configuration is changed to make the terminal smaller for that user, it might be too small for another user.08:10
persiaIf the configuration is changed to better handle DPI and resolution hinting, it is likely to be better for all users.08:10
persiaBut there's not enough information in that bug to verify that it can be actionable in that sense, so I won't mark it wishlist yet.08:11
persiaAlso, it probably belongs to python-vte or something, rather than update-manager.08:11
RedSingularityhmmmm how could I find what package it really belongs to?08:11
persiaIt is worth noting that we can't and won't support anyone who enables PPAs and extras, so it may be that this becomes an Invalid bug, depending.08:12
persiaI think it's python-vte: you can verify by checking which handler update-manager uses for the embedded terminal (looking at the update-manager source).08:12
persia(note that we *can* support some extras users, when they aren't using any of the extras apps, so it's not quite like PPA users, who we often can't support at all)08:13
RedSingularitypersia:  So if they are using a PPA then whatever bug it is should be considered invalad?08:13
persiaNo, but you have to do lots of extra research to make sure the package they are reporting the bug against isn't from a PPA, and none of the packages int he recursive dependency set of that package are from a PPA.08:14
persiaAnd even if you've done all that, it might be that the bug is caused by some completely other package they got from a PPA that interacts badly with the package the bug is reported against (which isn't even interesting to fix, as PPAs aren't part of Ubuntu)08:15
persiaSo, I guess I shouldn't say we can't support all PPA users, but it's a lot more work for us, and we can't support a heap of problems that end up being related to PPA packages.08:15
RedSingularityohh, interesting.  So a dependency list from the user would be good to see if it is dependent on a PPA that we dont support?08:16
persiaWhat I usually do is to try to replicate the bug in normal Ubuntu first.08:17
persiaIf we have the bug, and we can replicate it, we no longer care about the user environment, because we can ask ourselves all the questions we need to triage it.08:17
persiaAnd then provide clear documentation of how to reproduce, what component is affected, expected and observed behaviour, etc.08:17
persiaIf I can't replicate it, I ask for instructions from the user, and try harder.08:17
persiaIf I still can't replicate, I might start hunting down which packages the user has installed and the sources of those packages, but, in practice, I usually hunt for a bug I can usefully work on at that point.08:18
RedSingularityIs there a way to get a full dependency list from the user?  A command?08:20
persiaHey majeru.  Did you file a bug about it yet?08:21
majeruhi there, I'm having a problem with 10.10 on my Dell T3500. it constaltly panics with the default 10.10 kernel, from what I can tell the panic occurs while modprob-ing the AHCI driver08:21
majerupersia: where should I file it?08:22
persiaRedSingularity, I think there is something, but I forget how: look at apport or requestbug source.08:22
persiaRedSingularity, Often, if the bug is assigned to the right package, apport-collect will collect it.08:22
persiamajeru, Launchpad, preferably with `ubuntu-bug linux`.  Just have patience with the annoying set of questions you will be asked.08:22
majeruok, thanks08:23
RedSingularitypersia:  ok08:23
majerupersia: is it ok if I post photos with the crash?08:25
persiamajeru, If you can't get the logs any other way, yes.08:28
majeruok, I found someone posted the same bug a few days ago08:30
persiaBe careful: sometimes similar symptoms have different causes.08:41
persiaDouble-check that you have the same hardware, etc.08:41
jibelchrisccoulson, Hello, I'm a bit confused by the comments in bug 625793. When the users talk about g-s-d 2.32.0-0ubuntu4 they are referring to a version from a PPA ?09:41

chrisccoulsonseb128 - i'm not sure how that's meant to work. it seems weird that it picks up theme changes, but doesn't restore the theme after g-s-d crashes09:52

alvinCan I set bug 562742 to new again after it was 'fix released'? (It was fixed for only a week or so) What is the proper procedure to do this? I have a whole network suffering badly from this and seeing 'fix released' doesn't give peace of mind that this will get resolved eventually. (Also, I want to draw some attention to the bug. I have been receiving phone calls about this issue almost everey day now since Lucid came out.)12:02

persiaalvin, It's very rare to go from "Fix Released" to "New".12:07
persiaalvin, Based on comment #34, I'm certain that you have a slightly different bug with nearly identical symptoms.  Please file a new bug.12:09
alvinpersia: ok, will do.12:10
persiaCheck against 2.6.32-25, and if you can replicate, just follow that bug to ensure you have attached all the right logs, etc.12:10
persiaSometimes with hw-related bugs it's tricky to know when it's the same and when it's different, but if the kernel was changed in a way that did fix it for the original reporter and didn't fix it for you, that's a fairly strong indication that yours is different.12:11
alvinYes, symptoms are the same. I'll update them all again and file the new bug as soon as I can. (all machines are the same) Since lucid, all the mac addresses changed and eth1 was created. On top of that, several reboots are needed until the network goes up.12:11
persiaI know the second part of that to be false: there are other ways to reset the network interface initialisation (although reboot might be easy)12:12
persiaBut if your mac addresses are changing, then that's not ideal.12:12
alvinYes, there are other ways, but none that do not require root access. The users don't have that.12:41
