Q-FUNKhowdy!  has anyone ever resolved the issue of upgrading 'dbus' inside a chroot?  it tries to connect to an upstart socket that obviously doesn't exist there...12:17
BluesKajHey all12:23
albert23Q-FUNK: you could use a /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d to prevent starting/stopping daemons12:26
Q-FUNKalbert23: would you happen to have a URL to instructions for that?12:27
albert23Q-FUNK: this is what is used in pbuilder: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/1142904/12:28
albert23man invoke-rc.d describes it12:29
Q-FUNKalbert23: right.  it at least allows the packages to confgure succesfully. the warning about being unable to connect to dbus still appears, though, but it at least allows filing a bug.12:35
Q-FUNKalbert23: thanks for this.  it at least allows the chroot to complete the installation of packages.12:41

ls612I am thinking of dual-booting W7 and Ubuntu 12.10 alpha 3, (12.04 isn't compatable with my hardware), but I would like to know if there are any known bugs with the alpha that could harm my W7 stuff.15:59
wilee-nileels612, what problems have you heard that a ubuntu install would have that would harm a MS set up16:03
penguin42ls612: It is an alpha, so in principal there may be bugs that do nasty things; (for example very occasionally installer bugs that break other OSs)16:03
ls612I haven't heard of any specifically, but I know that odd things can happen with alphas, and I figured it couldn't hurt to ask someone more knowledgable than myself.16:04
penguin42ls612: Of course these things happen - and you've got a backup - right?16:04
penguin42well, there you go - as long as you can recover in the unlikely event it does nuke your windows install16:05
ls612OK, thanks.16:05
wilee-nileels612, good job being backed up. ;)16:05
wilee-nileepenguin42, It is always good I suppose to consider all possibilities, I install manually always so I had to wonder.16:08
penguin42wilee-nilee: Never underestimate the possibility of an upset alpha release16:10
wilee-nileehehe I suppose so I would not use it as a main setup penguin4216:10
wilee-nileebe backed up is the insurance always.16:11
hd1i just upgraded the kernel to 3.5.0-9, and it no longer finds any ethernet devices other than lo0 :(16:16
penguin42hd1: best to file a bug, I guess it works if you back the kernel off one version?16:21
penguin42hd1: It would be to capture a dmesg from the failed boot and add that to the bug report16:21
hd1penguin42: the secondary issue is that i seem to have removed the old package :p16:30
penguin42hd1: Well just download....16:30
penguin42hd1: If you download the package and copy it over using a USB stick you should be able to install it with dpkg -i16:31
penguin42you'll probably need a few16:31
hd1penguin42: trying -- where would the stick be mounted though?16:43
penguin42hd1: Well have you got the desktop up?16:44
penguin42hd1: It should land somewhere under /media16:44
hd1this is all from command line16:48
penguin42hd1: So put it in, it'll probably land as /dev/sdb1 - when you should plug it in you'll probably get some messages like sd 9:0:0:0: [sdd] 16328704 512-byte logical blocks: (8.36 GB/7.78 GiB)16:49
penguin42that says it's sdd116:50
penguin42then udisks --mount /dev/sdd1  should mount it16:50
ls612Well, it seems that my hardware isn't compatible with 12.10 either. :(16:51
ls612I can't connect to the internet with that either.16:51
penguin42ls612: does it show up in network manager?16:51
ls612My Ethernet controller is an Atheros AR8161/816516:52
ls612and No, it doesn't show up in the network manager.16:52

TJ-ls612: this may help you http://askubuntu.com/questions/165192/how-to-install-drivers-for-the-atheros-ar8161-ethernet-controller16:55
ls612TJ-: It's kinda hard to download driver software without an internet connection. :)16:56
penguin42TJ-: Hmm bug 927782 suggests that's fixed - hmm16:56

ls612penguin42: well, I can say that it is not fixed for me.16:57
TJ-ls612: You have one now, use it... you can build the driver on a different PC as long as the arch (64 or 32 bit) is the same16:57
ls612TJ-: OK16:57
TJ-ls612: which ISO image (and date) are you using?16:57
ls612The alpha 3, 64 bit.16:58
TJ-ls612: Looks like you need to install the OS, then on your other PC download the amd64.deb and move it to the networkless PC using a USB stick ir similar, then install it using "sudo dpkg -i ..."17:00
TJ-ls612: here's the link: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/amd64/linux-backports-modules-cw-3.4-3.2.0-29-generic/3.2.0-29.1417:00
ls612TJ-: When will the driver for this get included in the kernel?17:01
TJ-ls612: The alx driver is in that backports package, that will usually remain the way of bringing newer drivers from more recent kernel versions to earlier ubuntu releases17:03
TJ-ls612: Once you have it working on the PC itself, you can enable the precise-backports repository in Software Sources17:04
ls612Hm. when will this be included with ubuntu, without backporting? I really don't want to get complicated.17:05
TJ-It's not complicated. Once the backports repo is added it stays up to date17:09
ls612Will this be included with the Quantal stable release?17:10
TJ-That's for Precise of course... anything in backports will by definition be available in the quantal kernel updates17:11
TJ-sorry - I thought I was in the -1 room :D17:11
ls612Well, it isn't in Quantal Alpha 3, so when will it be in?17:13
ls612Does anyone know when support for my ethernet adapter will be in Quantal?17:29
penguin42TJ-: It's possible that bug needs reopening - I mean I wouldn't expect it to be fix released and lost from the alpha17:30
TJ-penguin42: I'm not clear they're actually included it in the kernel images17:34
penguin42TJ-: Why wouldn't they?17:34
hd1ok... i got the bloody thing restored, thanks penguin4217:38
TJ-mainline is refusing to accept the alx driver from Qualcomm; wants them to fix the existing in-kernel drivers instead. So it isn't going to enter the mainline kernel any time soon... and QCA appear to be changing it drastically to try to meet the kernel dev demands17:38
penguin42gah, I'd hoped he would tell us which card he had17:38
penguin42TJ-: But Ubuntu tend to add some non-upstream'd drivers into the build for common stuff17:38
TJ-Indeed we do, just that if the driver is in such turmoil its not something we want to have to endless track if its a major WIP right now17:39
penguin42shrug, it would seem better to include something for a common chipset rather than leaving people dead in the water17:39
TJ-Not if it conflicts with the atl1 driver in-kernel as it currently does17:40
penguin42ah - you mean you end up with it breaking other versions of the chips - yeh that sucks17:41
TJ-The problem is, Qualcomm write alx to replace the atl1 and support new devices, instead of adding the support to the existing driver in-kernel17:41
TJ-no, even worse, alx would conflict with atl117:41
TJ-both would claim to support the same device PCI IDs17:41
penguin42can they both build in the same tree?  It's not been too unusual to have two drivers that support the same PCI ID17:42
TJ-I don't see it in the Quantal kernel source; I've just git pulled the latest and don't see the alx driver17:44
ls612So does this mean that my hardware won't be receiving linux support? :(17:44
TJ-From what I can tell, it depends on Qualcomm behaving themselves17:45
penguin42TJ-: IMHO relying on that sounds like a bad idea, and it sounds better that someone builds a version to build both at the same time17:47
TJ-Why? It's Qualcomm's code and their responsibility. We had all this with Broadcom for 10 years and now, finally, they're working with the kernel devs since they want their hardware supported. Maybe Qualcomm have got to learn the same lesson17:48
penguin42TJ-: It doesn't help our users even if they're vendors are naff17:48
TJ-That isn't our problem though... it is the hardware vendors responsibility. They know what it takes, and its not complicated to do it the correct way17:49
penguin42TJ-: I don't disagree that they should do it, but in the end I'd say it's a distros responsibility to frig it for their users if there is a fix and the hardware vendors aren't being good17:50
TJ-Not when it comes to hardware! We don't have the documentation, no tech specs, and no resources to do that kind of work!17:50
TJ-It's not like packaging some application17:51
penguin42TJ-: But you don't need to, you just need to build their driver17:51
penguin42TJ-: If they've released a working albeit bad driver then it's not that hard to build it and only enable it for some IDs17:51
TJ-No, we have to carry patches to prevent it conflicting with other drivers in the kernel, and as it is a WIP that means constantly having to track what they're doing... once they get it in order and into staging or linux-next then we have something we can rely17:52
TJ-We are building it/shipping it - for Precise, but its not in the kernel images its outside17:53
penguin42TJ-: I'm not disagreeing that we'd have to carry patches and keep frigging it; but in terms of non-techy users being able to get their machine to work it's a necessary evil17:53

TJ-trism: Yes, they've finally got the message18:00

penguin42TJ-: Not sure, there was a very snotty message from Dave Miller on G+ saying they hadn't got it18:00
TJ-They're trying... its hard for proprietary companies to grok the kernel development style18:01
penguin42hmm - it looks like it's KVM threads - iotop is showing loads of kvm threads18:02
penguin42it looks like ~20 threads fighting over IO doing about 200KB/s each18:03
