evoh wow, thanks for fixing that! That's quite the long-standing bug.09:23
evI can't remember what blocked us previously.  I think I tried to fix it in python-debconf and got stuck, but this was years ago.09:24
cjwatsonI suspect there were older instances of the bug - feel free to dup09:25
evwill do09:33
evso what's going on with wubi?09:33
evskaet contacted me last night, but when I replied she said you had a handle on it, then rick said you basically haven't slept yet in trying to fix it09:33
cjwatsonI'm still debugging through grub09:35
cjwatsonit's crashing just after 'set root=(loop0)', which makes me very suspicious since that's been a problem location in the past09:35
cjwatsonsingle-stepping at the moment to try to figure out where it dies - in the past attempts to insert debug code have made the problem go away, so I think I have to use non-invasive techniques09:36
cjwatsonI wish management would quit comparing notes on how much I sleep. :-)09:37
evit got a wag of the finger by claire in the kitchen09:37
evdirected at rick09:37
evapparently someone should've held you down and made you sleep ;)09:38
cjwatsonI was awake *anyway*09:41
ev:) if it comes back up, I'll be sure to mention that09:43
cjwatsonnot that I don't appreciate the concern09:52
evof course09:54
davmor2ev: I thought the 4 px high ubiquty task bar was something that got fixed?12:44
evnot yet; in a meeting though12:51

cjwatsonsingle-stepping shows, I think, grub_file_getline returning GRUB_ERR_BAD_FS on the next read after 'set root=(loop0); if loadfont /usr/share/grub/unicode.pf2 ; then set gfxmode=auto; load_video; insmod gfxterm; fi'13:32
cjwatsonwhich is progress of a sort13:32
cjwatsonhm, I wonder if I can find the error message in memory13:35
cjwatsonI'm making copious use of gdb's 'find' command to find functions in memory13:37
cjwatsonand 'disas /r' and 'disas /rm' in another window13:38
cjwatson"read out of range", by the looks of things13:41
cjwatsonout for a bit13:41
cjwatson(which message is only emitted by the ntfs implementation, usefully)13:41
evincidentally, have you played around with the python support in gdb?14:04
evthere's a great presentation from pycon by an engineer at redhat who was using it to dig at memory leaks in yum bubbling up to their installer, amongst other things14:05
cjwatsonnot as yet no ...14:28
* cjwatson saves that for later :)14:28
CarlFKev: do you have time to poke at my d-i apt-setup/local0/repository bug 728710 ?14:35

kirklandcjwatson: i saw that cdebconf was accepted;  thanks;  could you ping me as soon as d-i gets rebuilt, so that I can check the new iso's?17:11
cjwatsonI'm not planning to do it right away, maybe tomorrow17:13
cjwatsonsure, I'll let you know17:13
cjwatsonnobody manually accepted cdebconf - the entire queue was flushed (FWIW)17:13
cjwatsonfgrep -al "$(printf '\x39\xcf\x73\xd3\x85\xff')" build/grub-pc/grub-core/*.mod17:50
cjwatsonyou know you're doomed when this is part of your debugging process17:50
cjwatson(probably wants LC_ALL=C)17:59
cjwatsoninterestingly, the first point where I'm seeing an error in the NTFS driver is inside loadfont18:15
cjwatsonI'm wondering if bufio is 64-bit-unclean18:15
cjwatsonthough not *entirely* sure whether that would account for it yet18:17
