erapplemanhi, my name is eric, i will be representing the bumblebee project and the hybrid graphics launchpad group16:02
erapplemanairlied has been very forthcoming with his patches and trees, but there has yet to be a comprehensive howto for compiling all of the prime components. all of my work has been compile-and-then-see16:07
erappleman*all of my testing16:07
erapplemanall i have to go on is this: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~airlied/xserver/tree/drv/TODO?h=drvmodelv216:10
tjaaltonerappleman: that's the old branch?16:11
erapplemanthere's no updated todo for v3 afaik16:11
tjaaltonoh todo, right..16:11
erapplemanin addition to the ddx, i've heard the libdrm, glproto, and maybe even mesa may need patching.16:12
=== fenris is now known as Guest8617
erapplemanbumblebee is nice, but virtualgl is a very slow transport method from gpu to screen16:17
=== Guest8617 is now known as ejat
erapplemanbtw, radeon optimus is now called enduro16:18
erapplemanack, on the etherpad you guys list the acpi calls16:21
erapplemanwe don't call these directly anymore16:21
RAOFerappleman: Yeah, we need some mesa/glproto stuff to make this most useful - that will be buildable once we actually have the foundational support.16:22
erapplemanbbswitch is a catch-all for all calls including quirky machines like the lenovo y57016:22
erapplemanRAOF, this uds meeting has been more ambitious than i was expecting. so i'm hopeful16:24
erapplemantjaalton, what kind of ppa are you proposing?16:25
tjaaltonerappleman: one with all the latest crack needed for this16:25
tjaaltonxserver, ddx's etc16:25
erapplemannvidia says they CAN support optimus if export_symbol is adopted for dma-buf16:26
erapplemantjaalton,  that would be sweet16:26
erapplemanwrt to ati cards, i'm not sure where catalyst and radeon is at for intel+radeon16:28
erapplemanamd+radeon is usually better supported for hybrid graphics16:29
erapplemanRAOF, what kind of work have you done with vga-switcheroo? is there a public code repo?16:31
RAOFerappleman: No; what I've done so far is an upstart script that automatically switches off the unused GPU on boot.16:32
RAOFIt's not particularly complicated, but it's got some awkward edge-cases.16:33
erapplemanwhat kind of calls are made to the gpu? if the pci address space isn't saved, the card won't always turn back on correctly.16:35
RAOFOn the systems I was using it wasn't possible to use the card _at all_, so I never tried turning it back on again.16:37
RAOFI presume that vga_switcheroo knew how to enabled/disable cards, though?16:37
erapplemanit can disable cards, but it's not meant for optimus without heavy patching16:38
erapplemanairlied built it for ati cards16:38
RAOFOk.  I'm not sure how much we care about that, as long as it's opt-in, because it's otherwise just pointless power consumption.16:41
RAOFBecause we have no supported way to use the other card.16:42
erapplemanit would be easier to upstream bbswitch than turning off the card with a script. it's very robust.16:42
erapplemanjames, blame lenovo for their garbage non-standard bios16:43
erapplemannvidia already yelled at them16:43
erapplemanmade sure of that16:43
bilalIt's been a year and a half since Nvidia said NO to Linux optimus support. Are they willing to do something like AMD did with FGLRX anytime soon?16:45
bilalOf course none of us know, but asking, just in case.16:45
tjaaltonbilal: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2012-January/018249.html16:46
erapplemanbilal, they've moderated their stance to "possible, if we get our way with the new dma-buf mechanism"16:46
erapplemantjaalton, can i add an open question to the pad?16:49
tjaaltonerappleman: go ahead16:49

homiquestion: if  dam-buf is out of reach for current cycle can we at least have gpu switching via reboot for more models without BIOS possibility to set primary GPU but have the needed hardware mux? (there is a thread @ ubuntuforums where it seems to work for one specific model of eeepcs with intel integrated / nvidia. I guess there are more models that possibly allow this )16:51

sladenPS. although the dialogue it comes up automatically, to complete the calibration, you need to have a newer version of Argyll from the PPA19:11
sladenargyll 1.3.1 vs. argyll 1.3.519:13
sladenyup, if somebody could take some "action shots" of loads of calibration going on19:15
sladenwe can write it up afterwards19:15
sladenperhaps put all the laptops side by side19:16
sladena row of people, each holding their laptop showing eg. the desktop background19:16
sladenand then the same row of people afterwards again, still holding their laptops, but now looking the same19:16
sladen(brightness fiddling may be required)19:16
sladenscreenshots will look the same19:17
sladen== pointless19:17
sladenyou need to shoot externally with a camera19:17
sladenthe one thing I haven't completely understood is the need to "set a matrix" afterwards19:18
sladenwhich I'm guessing is perhaps something to do with white-point(?)19:18
sladenthe "4 minute" one for me took about 20 minutes19:19
sladenso start early.  It keeps looking as those it has hung.  We probably need to do some improvements to give a count down/up19:20
sladenrather than just a pulsing progress bar19:20
Lekensteynerappleman: are there minutes or public notes for http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-q/meeting/20691/desktop-q-hybrid-graphics/ ?19:23
sladenerappleman: is that a different session?  Current one is  http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-q/meeting/20487/monitor-calibration/19:24
sladenthat's my impression too19:26
sladenI suspect it's actually broken, and needs debugging19:27
sladenI suspect the "4 minutes" is not actually making any difference19:27
Lekensteynsladen: what time is it currently? It's 9.30 pm here (UTC+1), but the summit.ubuntu.com website speaks of 12:00 for the current subject http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-q/meeting/20487/monitor-calibration/19:27
sladeneverything is ready, except argyll (can be backported)19:27
sladenLekensteyn: 12:28.  I did  Date & Time -> Time & Date settings -> Clock -> Choose Locations -> [+] -> Oakland19:28
Lekensteynoh right, I've forgotten that the event is happening in Oakland >.>19:29
sladenLekensteyn: you're also probably on UTC+219:30
Lekensteynthen I've probably mixed up UTC and GMT19:30
sladenUTC and GMT are generally the same19:31
Lekensteynexcept for summer time19:31
Lekensteynanyway, I see a link to a pad (notes), but these are private. Can a public link be shared?19:31
sladenLekensteyn: at the moment you're one hour ahead of London which is one hour ahead of UTC19:31
Faqtotumutc IS gmt as far as computers are concerned; neither is subject to "summer time"19:31

Effenberg0x0If we create a rule in which all ISO-Testers of Desktop ISOs will be forbidden to report any bug about Ubiquity, Grub or Jockey. Would ISO-Testing results still be valuable?23:44
micahgEffenberg0x0: why would we do such a thing?23:48
Effenberg0x0Because looking at this, I think that, for a new cycle, Ubiquity is the most mentioned word. And the rest is VGA/NIC kernel module loading/proper installing. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/ReleaseReports/PreciseFinalTestReport23:48
micahgEffenberg0x0: yes, and installer bugs are critical to be fixed before release to actually insure installability23:49
Effenberg0x0So, since we know this are weak and reliable areas, why not just fix it instead of testing it over and over again23:49
Effenberg0x0Make a task force, do our best to improve it.23:50
micahgI think there is great effort in fixing various issues (if it's known, maybe whoopsie will catch it now)23:50
Effenberg0x0Hopefully. I mean, I don't think we need more bugs about Ubiquity, Jockey. Ok, we know it needs to be worked.23:50
micahgEffenberg0x0: it's all open source, feel free to start hacking :23:50
Effenberg0x0How do we join enough people to focus only on testing and fixing it in this cycle23:50
Effenberg0x0Well, I'm the tester. Am I to be the developer too?23:51
Effenberg0x0Thanks :)23:52
Effenberg0x0Look here23:52
Effenberg0x0Count the number of words Ubiquity23:52
micahgEffenberg0x0: yes, that's fine, if we keep finding the same bugs, yes, that's an issue (one that whoopsie should help with, although I'm not sure about from the installer)23:53
stgraberwe're quite a few working on ubiquity and d-i, it certainly is one of the package with the most bugs listed in the release notes23:54
Effenberg0x0Yes, since Lucid23:54
stgraberhowever there's a good reason for that, as any bug in ubiquity or d-i automatically become release notable23:54
stgraberas there's no way to fix them post-release23:55
udsbotuuds-gb-a: 5 minutes left in this session!23:55
Effenberg0x0I think it's OK already. We don't need more bug reports to say "hey, look, this things needs some focus"23:55
stgraberI'm not sure what makes you think it needs more focus, it's in the top 10 of the most updated packages in Ubuntu23:55
udsbotuuds-gb-a: 4 minutes left in this session!23:56
stgraberit has a team of 3-4 active contributors and has a dedicated QA person just to triage these bugs23:56
stgraberwhat we need is for people to stop reporting duplicate bugs so we can actually spend our time fixing bugs instead of just merging bug reports23:56
udsbotuuds-gb-a: 3 minutes left in this session!23:57
Effenberg0x0stgraber, that's what I mean. How do we stop and say "Hey, what do we have to do to bring attention of the community to make it perfect"23:57
Effenberg0x0or whould we agree that it is something unreliable and that we should move to anaconda for example23:57
udsbotuuds-gb-a: 2 minutes left in this session!23:58
Effenberg0x0Time :\23:58
stgraberoh, another reason for all the bugs is that it's the only package in the Ubuntu archive that's allowed to report results post-release23:58
udsbotuuds-gb-a: 1 minute left in this session!23:59
stgraberubiquity is globally very reliable, though the problem is that with million of users, any given corner case will have quite a few people hitting it, most of them blindly reporting the bug and never giving us what we need to fix them23:59
stgraberso we end up having known bugs that nobody can reproduce that are just sitting there until someone else can reprodce the bug and provide the information we asked 3 years before23:59
Effenberg0x0stgraber, would it be the case to select a group of skilled testers, join with developers, work together23:59
