infinityBluefoxicy: Looks like filesystem corruption or bad RAM.03:17
hyperair#lefine indeed.03:18
Bluefoxicyinfinity: it just installed that03:20
Bluefoxicyit downloaded a linux kernel image/header package I think03:20
hyperairinfinity: bad RAM sounds more likely. it's the 4th bit being flipped consistently.03:21
Bluefoxicywait, how would that happen03:21
Bluefoxicydoesn't the kernel hash blocks it buffers?03:21
* hyperair shrugs03:23
hyperairi've had memory corruption from using zcache before.03:23
* Bluefoxicy unpacks it again.03:23
Bluefoxicyexact same result hum.03:23
hyperairif you're using that you might like to disable it and see if it helps matters.03:23

micahgBluefoxicy: go for memtest03:24
hyperairyeah memtest03:25
hyperairit sounds very much like bad mem now.03:25
Bluefoxicydropping caches seems to have fixed it.03:25
BluefoxicyI think I need a file system check.  :|03:25
Bluefoxicywhy oh why didn't i use lvm03:25
Bluefoxicyi would take a snapshot and fsck it now.03:26
hyperairnot fsck03:27
hyperairif dropping caches fixes it, it's not a filesystem issue03:27
hyperairit's a memory issue03:27
Bluefoxicyi mean to make sure the disk doesn't have corruption from prior issues03:27
hyperairdo you have zcache enabled?03:27
Bluefoxicyno I have zswap but it's not swapping to it03:27
Bluefoxicyzcache was terrible03:27
Bluefoxicyit caused abberant behavior so I don't use it.03:28
Bluefoxicyso on a completely different note03:28
Bluefoxicyhave you folks seen Pulp?03:28
hyperairhaha i had issues with zcache too.03:28
Bluefoxicy(zcache was making Linux keep tiny, tiny file system caches so it was slow as hell)03:28
hyperairhrmm, i didn't have that issue.03:29
hyperairwhat i did get was weird intermittent short hangs03:29
BluefoxicyI was in the #pulp channel earlier03:29
hyperairand dpkg corruption03:29
Bluefoxicythey were discussing the plug-in to handle apt/deb repos03:29
Bluefoxicyapparently that's coming soon.03:30
Bluefoxicyso it'll be able to centralize both yum and apt repository caches and mirrors and push updates and software installation to Debian-based systems and yum/rpm systems03:30
BluefoxicyThat should probably be a tasksel task on Ubuntu Server in the future ;|03:30
infinityBluefoxicy: fsck isn't going to catch the sort of corruption that bit-flipping causes.  Not in any way that won't do more damage when trying to fix it.03:41
infinityBluefoxicy: The best solution if you suspect this sort of pain is to back up immediately, fix the hardware problem, reinstall, and selectively restore/verify data you care about.03:41

ahasenackcjwatson: the lxc container you mean?13:27
ahasenackcjwatson: the linode machine does have /boot/grub/grub.cfg (my last comment in the bug), let me check the lxc one13:28
ahasenackcjwatson: the lxc instance does NOT have /boot/grub/grub.cfg13:29
ahasenackcjwatson: looking at /etc/init/container-detect.conf, I wonder if we shouldn't check for lxc specifically. Would grub fail on, say, openvz too?13:35
cjwatsonIt will fail in any context where it can't figure out a full path to the filesystem that will work from bare metal13:39
cjwatsonSo it will probably fail in any container13:39
cjwatsonahasenack: Does your Linode machine actually use GRUB to boot?13:39
ahasenackcjwatson: it uses "grub-pv" iirc13:40
cjwatson(Well, where I say "bare metal", I mean "from the context where GRUB will actually boot")13:40
cjwatsonahasenack: Right, so that's not Sebastian's case13:40
ahasenackcjwatson: he didn't give more info yet, did he?13:40
cjwatsonIn your Linode instance, GRUB can evidently figure out a halfway plausible route to /boot/grub and thus succeeds13:41

jodhseb128: yeah, I did wonder about that :) Is there a way for an application to delay the logout then?14:40
seb128jodh, no "delay" I think, there are at least 2 mechanism supported14:41
seb128- the xorg session registration protocol14:41
seb128but I guess that's going away when xorg is going away14:41
seb128- http://people.gnome.org/~mccann/gnome-session/docs/gnome-session.html#org.gnome.SessionManager.Inhibit14:42
seb128gnome-session has an inhibit api which allows to inhibit logout14:42

pittixnox: hah, it's right on https://live.gnome.org/PyGObject/IntrospectionPorting14:46
pittixnox: http://www.michaelwood.me.uk/blag/2012/11/23/python-pygi-gudev-example/ is another one14:46
pittixnox: it's really the C API from http://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/gudev/14:47
jodhseb128: ok, thanks. We need to find a way to tie this into the design as by default Upstart is only going to wait for up to 5 seconds for gnome-session to after the initial SIGTERM.14:47
xnoxpitti: thanks. I was about to dive into pyudev....14:48
seb128jodh, good point, do you think there is any way to block on gnome-session to exit/send a signal?14:49
jodhseb128: actually, it's not a problem assuming gnome-session only calls ConsoleKit to request system shutdown after its shut down its clients.14:49

zygakirkland: there are some issues with making that possible16:51
kirklandzyga: oh, yeah?16:51
kirklandzyga: let me take a look at that16:51
zygakirkland: the bzr pieces were not finished16:51
zygakirkland: and with the state of bzr maintenence it's not likely they ever will16:52
xnoxLaney: well. almost =)16:52
zygakirkland: but if you find out about anything related to this topic I would appreciate if you could ping me about it16:52
kirklandzyga: yeah, I've always had a ton of trouble with LP autoimporting other vcs's16:52
kirklandzyga: the only thing that's ever worked for me16:52
xnoxLaney: in the end I just updated the configs by hand, but they have raring already.16:52
zygakirkland: I remember using experimental mode in bzr-git a few years ago where I could push/pull to git repos from bzr with all meta-data16:52
kirklandzyga: is fast-export | fast-import16:52
zygabut that code was never enabled16:52
zygakirkland: don't get me started, bzr-fastimport is so broken today16:53
zygakirkland: the only reason I wrote git-lp is to work around the bugs in bzr-fastimport so that I get a subset which works16:53
zygakirkland: I tried fixing it but I am unable to write tests that would be accepted upstream, bzr's internals are too complex for my limited time now16:54
zygakirkland: https://github.com/zyga/git-lp/blob/master/git-lp16:54
xnoxzyga: github has a lot of git-[bzr|lp[-ng]] wrappers and forks..... =/16:55
zygaxnox: I looked at many of those, they all depend on fastexport16:56
zygaxnox: so far, only bzr-git is actually genuinely different16:56
zygaxnox: and unfinished16:56
xnoxzyga: how does your's work?16:56
xnoxzyga: or is it still fastimport but with hacks and what not16:57
zygaxnox: it also uses fastexport but 1) only in a very limited way (with rationale) and 2) I carry a small patch for bzr (that I am unable to upstream), I don't know about anyone that uses bzr+git without a patch like that16:57
zygaxnox: my code is really small, I encourage you to read it16:57
cjwatsonMm, I used fastexport for several things a while back and accumulated a giant patch stack16:57
zygakirkland: have you ever seen bzr crashing on anything you do?16:57
cjwatsonSome of which I managed to upstream but I think not all of it, because damn it was complex16:58
xnoxzyga: cjwatson: I too have a small stack of patches.....16:58
zygacjwatson: which parts were complex? bzr?16:58
cjwatsonI like the idea, it's much easier to debug something like fastexport16:58
cjwatsonno, fast*port itself16:58
zygacould you guys share patches please?16:58
zygaI'm totally interested16:58
xnoxmaybe we should push them somewhere and create a robust bzr2git.....16:58
rbasakWhat's bad about fastexport? I have yet another tool (unpublished) that uses fastexport as minimally as I could and just works. But it currently works in one direction only16:58
xnox(and reverse, if there is a desire to push things back to launchpad)16:58
cjwatsonI think mine ended up on https://code.launchpad.net/bzr-fastimport16:59
zygathe problem that I see is that some of those need to get into bzr tree and that is hard without someone that is willing to spend effort on getting to know bzr internals to write proper tests16:59
zygacjwatson: so have all of your patches landed upstream or are they just pushed as a branch of bzr-fastexport?16:59
cjwatsonIf it's at all useful, my big-blob-of-stuff patch appears to be http://paste.ubuntu.com/1560105/16:59
* zyga looks17:00
cjwatsonI don't really remember any more how much got upstream and don't think I have the time to look right now17:00
cjwatsonBut maybe you can take it from there if you care ...17:00
zygacjwatson: too bad it's not a bunch of commits with rationale, it's harder to track that17:00
cjwatsonSome of that's probably backporting to whatever version of bzr I was using at the time17:00
zygacjwatson: but still valuable, I'll read it in detail17:00
cjwatsonYeah, the problem with this kind of thing was that I was using it one-shot17:00
zygacjwatson: what was your main use case?17:00
cjwatsonSo didn't have a lot of motivation to tidy up later17:00
zygacjwatson: and is it something that you still use often?17:00
cjwatsonGenerally, one-shot conversions of my various Debian package repositories from other formats (usually svn)17:01
cjwatsonNot the sort of thing you tend to use much after you're finished17:01
zygaI see17:01
cjwatsonThe existence of https://code.launchpad.net/~cjwatson/bzr-fastimport/git-directories (merged) suggests that I used it for git at least once17:01
zygamy main use case is git-bzr co-existence (I wish lp had support for git)17:01
cjwatsonI don't use fast*port anywhere in any kind of continuous mode at the moment17:02
zygaI see, thanks17:02
zygaxnox: how about your patches?17:03
rbasakzyga: I have a git native remote for bzr that seems to work perfectly in the bzr->git direction. My problem with existing tools was that they didn't integrate with git properly, and the whole point of me wanting git is for more advanced stuff that the existing tools broke for.17:03
cjwatson+        if dirname == 'openbsd-compat/regress' and '200912' in dir_file_id:17:03
cjwatson+            assert False17:03
cjwatson*cough* spot the hack for openssh ...17:03
cjwatsonThat must have been some kind of insane CVS weirdness, I guess17:04
zygarbasak: git-native remote for bzr, so you use bzr repos with git, correct?17:05
zygarbasak: what is the name of your remote?17:05
rbasakzyga: I called it git-bzr-nih, but not published anything17:05
zygarbasak: what tech is it using?17:05
rbasakbzr fastexport with a bit of hackery. It maintains a map of git commit hash to bzr revid, and only calls bzr fastexport for revids it doesn't already have17:06
rbasak(it parses the map file out that bzr fastexport emits)17:06
zygarbasak: ah, sane, I always could not understand why bzr-fastexport used revno (which is totally useless in face of history edits)17:06
zygarbasak: cool, would you mind sharing that?17:06
zygarbasak: have you encountered anything that you had to patch in bzr/bzr-fastexport?17:07
zyga(apart from the obvious feature you've mentioned)17:07
rbasakTo go the other way I use git format-patch and a bzr-am script I wrote that does the same thing as git-am. No patching in bzr/fastexport needed17:08
rbasakI also have a working git cache mechanism since bzr fast-export is so slow17:08
zygaah, cool17:09
rbasakIt's not assembled in a way that's easy for others to use since I've not spent time on it, but you can have the pieces :)17:09
zygadoes it work with stuff like merges? using raw bzr-am means that you loose parent hashes17:09
zygarbasak: cool, I'll take them please17:09
rbasakMerges work in the bzr->git direction. But the git->bzr direction is completely manual - I've not done anything about it apart from the bzr-am I was using before. So in that direction only linear commits work, but that's enough for me since anything I want to submit as an MP tends to be linear anyway17:10
rbasakI might write something to do git->bzr properly one day17:11
toabctlLaney, I try to play mp3s with raring but I get: Error: Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.17:19
Laneyplay them with what?17:20
toabctlLaney, with gst12317:20

zykes-can anyone help me on the differences on a rpm repo vs a debian repo in regards to structures ?22:16
zykes-like http://ubuntu.uib.no/archive/dists/hardy/ < is one repo I guess vs http://centos.uib.no/6/centosplus/x86_64/ in a yum format ?22:16
cjwatsonzykes-: I don't know the RPM terms.  In conventional aptish terms, http://ubuntu.uib.no/archive/ is a repository while http://ubuntu.uib.no/archive/dists/hardy/ is a suite22:22
zykes-cjwatson: how's suite compared into a yum repo ?22:23
cjwatsonA suite being a combination of release series (hardy) and the nature of the upload stream (so hardy is the release itself, hardy-updates for recommended updates, etc.)22:23
cjwatsonI have no experience with yum repositories22:23
cjwatsonThere may not be a single URL equating to the example you gave - there'll be .../main/binary-amd64/, .../restricted/binary-amd64/, etc.  main and restricted (etc.) there are called "components", and slice up the set of packages into very broad licensing/support categories22:25
cjwatsonThe division into architectures goes underneath components22:26
zykes-i'm wondering a bit because of https://github.com/ekarlso/pulp_deb22:26
zykes-if you wondered why22:26
cjwatsonI remembered you had a project to try to present a unified view, yes22:27

RAOFdobey: I suspect something is trying to log to $HOME, which deliberately isn't there under sbuild?22:56
dobeybut don't the launchpad buildds runn under sbuild? do they have $HOME set to a real directory?22:57
micahgnothing should be using $HOME in a build anyways22:58
micahgjdstrand: apparently imagemagick needs a rebuild and could use a merge from Debian, I was wondering as you TIL if you're working on that22:59
dobeymicahg: i generally agree, but i'm just taking a source package from a ppa on launchpad, which failed to build for another reason, and trying to build it locally under sbuild, since pbuilder apparently won't let me use OTHERMIRROR on oneiric23:00
micahgdobey: try setting $HOME in the invocation line to temporarily work around it23:02
cjwatsondobey: IME on Debian buildds HOME has been arbitrarily set or not.  You shouldn't assume anything either way23:02
slangasekin fact, they used to be permuted across architectures to catch different classes of misuse23:02
cjwatsondobey: The launchpad buildds use an old version of sbuild, to be found in lp:launchpad-buildd23:03

cjwatsonThis could be a detail that differs23:03
cjwatsonThere won't be many such details - honestly you might as well just fix it and get it out of the way23:03
slangasek(HOME unset; HOME pointing to a root-only directory; HOME pointing to a non-existent directory; etc.  Moral: fix your packages to not rely on the environment's HOME)23:03

cjwatsonbdrung: Please do not upload that to Ubuntu.  I'll have a look when I'm not going to bed, but I must warn you that I'm not keen on this.23:13
cjwatsonThere's no guarantee at all that a future release won't require a change in the debootstrap scripts.  Past performance (and only since gutsy) is no guide to future performance.23:14
bdrungcjwatson: i wasn't going to upload the change soon, but getting a review before.23:14
bdrungcjwatson: so a warning should be printed?23:15
cjwatsonAnd in that case using distro-info will make it look like it will work but create possibly very subtle and hard to fix bugs.23:15
cjwatsonOr you could just leave well alone :)23:15
cjwatsonI don't really see a bug to be fixed other than "we should SRU debootstrap more vigorously".23:15
cjwatsonBut bed.23:16
dobeyso this code isn't exactly using HOME at this stage. it's that python-distutils-extra's auto setup stuff imports *all* of the modules, and some of those modules do things on import23:24
infinitymicahg: That amd64-microcode backport should be fine, but we really might want to look at gettting the kernel team involved in SRUing rather than backporting microcode packages.23:26
micahginfinity: it's not in precise23:26
infinitymicahg: Sort of falls into the same general realm as linux-firmware, which we SRU for enablement and fixes.23:27
infinitymicahg: Yeah, I know it's not.23:27
micahginfinity: ok, should I talk to the kernel team or accept the backport23:27
infinityWell, I guess since they're both in multiverse anyway, maybe they're not all that often used/referenced.23:28
* infinity shrugs.23:28
infinityIt still feels like something that falls under enablement SRUs rather than backports, but...23:28
micahginfinity: it's in multiverse since it's free to distribute, but not modify AIUI23:28
micahgwell, in either case, it'll show up the same way in software center since there's no previous version23:29
infinityRight, I was pointing out that it's in multiverse rather than restricted.  ie: we don't support or rely on it in any way.23:29
micahgah, ok23:29
infinityErr, wait.23:29
infinityWhy are you backporting an older version without the workaround?23:30
micahginfinity: the workaround would need to be SRUd to quantal or backported to quantal (would vote for SRU in this case), but if it's not an issue in Ubuntu, I wouldn't bother23:30
infinityIt should be SRUd to Q, yes.23:31
infinityI forgot you can't backport from devel releases.23:31
micahgit sounds like it only affects people that know how to break their systems (i.e. not default)23:31
slangasekyou don't?  I thought that was the norm23:31
infinityThe bug is quite real and just as valid on Ubuntu.  We should SRU it back.23:31
micahgwe backport through releases with an upgrade path23:32
infinityGiven the dependencies of the package, I'd almost be tempted to just copy it to quantal-proposed from raring, honestly.23:32
micahginfinity: I don't mind preparing an SRU, I'll get it retested once that's in then, thanks23:33
infinityThe only change between Q and R is that one bugfix, and the package doesn't have any compiled code.23:33
micahginfinity: ok, you just want the paperwork then?23:34
infinitymicahg: I'm not even convinced I want the paperwork (can't do a bug closure on a copy with nothing in the changelog anyway), if you can actually test before/after in any meaningful way.23:35
infinitymicahg: If it's going to need third-party drive-by testing then, yeah, a formal SRU will be better.23:35
micahginfinity: well, if your SRU hat tells you the copy is fine, it sounds like it makes sense23:36
infinitymicahg: I have many hats agreeing that the copy is just fine, so long as we can get a quick test that the package DTRT.23:36
infinity(And, honestly, if it has users at all, they'd be telling us that the raring one, with its 4 lines of bugfix, is broken)23:36
micahginfinity: as I don't use the package, I couldn't say one way or the other23:40
