micahgjamespage: jai-core, yeah, I figure it could be ported, I was wondering if there were an easier way to move forward that porting the code (and this is a sun library that hasn't been updated in 5 years, so I figure there might not be hope)01:53

pittiScottK, slangasek: NB that lightdm also doesn't support logind in a particular way, it just uses the PAM module05:42
ScottKpitti: OK. That was from one of the upstream KDE developers that's worked on the KDE greeter, so I didn't know.05:52

pittiScottK: well, the PAM module is sufficient for creating sesssions; it's of course very likely that it has knobs for shutdown/reboot, which do need to talk to CK/logind directly05:54
pittiScottK: porting that is easy (it's more or less replacing org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.ShutDown() with org.freedstkop.login1.PowerOff()), but also not strictly required if you keep consolekit installed05:56

pittiinfinity: would you know, to disable a particular binary from a source package, is it enough to drop it from the binary .changes, or do I actually need to drop it from debian/control?06:21
pittiinfinity: doing the latter is quite intrusive to debian/rules in the systemd case and also breaks --list-missing/--fail-missing quite badly06:21
infinitypitti: Keeping it in debian/control means it ends up in .dsc, but that might not be world-ending.  Were you thinking of just seding changes at the very end of the build?06:22
infinitypitti: That should technically work and not upset things too much.  Try it in a PPA.06:22

pittidh_builddeb, I figure06:24
infinitypitti: Oh, sure.  That could also do the trick.06:24
infinitypitti: It's pretty hackish (given the incorrect .dsc), but we have dscs that are incomplete and/or overly-complete in other packages, I suspect it wouldn't be a bit deal.06:25
pittiinfinity: it would appear similar to udebs or Arch: <specific> packages I guess06:25

infinityHrm, curious that the manpage doesn't document dpkg-vendor as being case-insensitive, but it sure appears to be.07:45
dholbachgood morning07:45
infinitypitti: Given that vendor and parent in origins/* appear to be all mixed-case, I'd probably stick with Ubuntu over ubuntu since the tool doesn't document its case-insensitivity, but that's probably just me being paranoid.07:47
infinitypitti: I imagine if someone broke that at this point, people would scream, so the right thing to do is fix the manpage. :P07:47

smartboyhwinfinity, :P12:13
smartboyhwinfinity, there wasn't even a tag for it hmmm12:14
infinityIn all honesty, given how simple the merge actually is (when you strip away the 70MB patch), I'd be more inclined to just do it myself than try to fuss with sponsoring, if it was me.12:15
smartboyhwinfinity, I'm not Ubuntu dev or whatever.....12:15
smartboyhwinfinity, ah you mean you do it12:15
* infinity is still not sure why we think merges are a good way to get people to contribute for sponsorship, since they tend to be either "so trivial that your patch isn't worth the effort" or "so complicated that I need to read it line-by-line and do it myself anyway".12:15
smartboyhwinfinity, I like it though12:16
infinitysmartboyhw: Yeah.  There's nothing wrong with you liking merges.  My complaint is with having non-uploading people do them for the sponsorship queue, I guess, because of the above.12:17
om26erjpds, here both Pakistan mirrors, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors and then tried the Quwait mirror, same problem as well. What worked for me was the main server but its slow12:17
infinityThey're pretty much the silliest things to "sponsor", since I have to re-do it myself to verify it's correct.12:17

tumbleweedprobably because they are an easy list of things to do12:17

smartboyhwtumbleweed, and the Packaging Guide teaches them12:18
infinitytumbleweed: I'm sure I've seen Colin raise the same complaint. :P12:18
smartboyhwThat's why I used it12:18
tumbleweedit's something you need to know how to do. It doesn't mean you go and do other people's merges12:18
tumbleweed(not talking specifically about this case)12:18
infinityI don't even mind people merge-sniping occasionally, it really is the sponsorship aspect.  They're almost literally unsponsorable.12:18
jpdsom26er: Well, click on them for more information.12:19
infinityByt the time I'm done, I've re-done exactly the same work to verify it's correct, and then I put someone else's name in my changelog.  Which isn't really sponsorship.12:19
* tumbleweed finds sponsoring merges to be a useful way to encourage a bunch of behavior in new developers. It's a hell of a lot of work, though12:19
xnoxinfinity: smartboyhw: i have no problem with bzr merges with large diffs. Afterall all i need to do is $ bzr diff -rtag:$DEBIAN_VERSION to get the debdiff against debain.12:20
smartboyhwxnox, Ok12:20
infinityxnox: Whatever works for you.12:20
om26erjpds, i am going to try to contact their admins and see what i get out of that12:20
infinitytumbleweed: Yeah, sponsoring/reviewing/(re-doing) merges can be a good way to teach people about a ton of other packaging gotchas, and just generally rap them on the knuckles for doing silly things.12:21
infinitytumbleweed: But I'm not sure that has much to do with merges as much as it has to do with volume and diversity of packages that need merging.12:21
infinitytumbleweed: If you were to ask apw what the best packaging crash course is, he'd probably say a massive library API transition. :P12:22
apwinfinity, that'd do it ... with some gnarly c++ in it12:22
infinitytumbleweed: 17 different patch formats, a few source formats, a ton of weird ways to make that all work together, different VCSes, different upstreams...12:22
* xnox realised i'm a bit clueless with old-style / verbose dh_* way of packaging stuff.12:23
xnoxinfinity: one source package split twice in main & universe is the nail in the coffin though that hardly anyone manages to notice ;-)12:23
tumbleweedso, we should send new contributors to the +1 team?12:23
infinityxnox: Poor, poor boost.12:24
infinityxnox: You should cleverly make them interdepend strongly enough that they can't migrate without being in sync.12:24
infinityxnox: Or, y'know, help with ArchiveReorg so we can make boost-mpi go the *&!% away.12:24
xnoxi think they do.12:24
infinityxnox: Oh, do they?  Maybe all the problems were pre-britney, then.  Yay for another solved problem. :P12:24
* xnox was pondering about 3.0 (custom) which generates two source packages....12:25
infinitytumbleweed: Actually, I wouldn't mind having some new blood here and there.  The problem is that it needs to be new blood with sufficient programming clue.12:25
tumbleweedand, presumably, time12:25
xnoxinfinity: way too picky =))))12:25
infinitytumbleweed: I don't need people who understand Debian packaging (I can teach that via pain), but I need people who speak a few programming languages and can adapt.12:25
apwyeah that was my supprise, that although packaging is important, most of what one does is not packaging in +112:26
infinityapw: To be fair, I threw specific things at you because I know you're a strong programmer, there's plenty of packaging fixes in +1 too.12:30
apwinfinity, fair enough indeed, +1 was fun and i do recommend a stint12:31
infinityBut while I can teach a strong programmer to fix packaging, I'm not particularly good at teaching a strong packager C and Python. :/12:31
infinityAnd understanding WHY something breaks is critical before you go and work around it by breaking a package. :P12:31
infinity(And then understanding how to fix it...)12:31
infinitytumbleweed: But, in all seriousness, if you have people wandering in who say "I have a really good fundamental knowledge of C/C++, but don't know thing one about Debian packaging", send them my way, I can make use of them.12:33
infinitydholbach: ^12:33
seb128infinity, you don't especially need strong programming skills to be helpful on +112:34

tumbleweedinfinity: finding people like that is tough :P12:34

infinityseb128: Sometimes it's just patch hunting, sure.  I can teach that too. ;)12:34
rbasakI guess that only applies to people seeking those upload rights though12:35
infinityseb128: But even then, while you don't need to be a *good* programmer to backport a patch, you need to understand general programming well enough to know how to massage it and fix it when you break it.12:35
infinityseb128: I suspect you take that skill for granted, since you're good at it. :)12:35
seb128lol, could be :p12:35
infinity(I, for instance, am not a particularly good programmer, but I'm good enough to know why and how I've broken something, rather than throwing my hands in the air and saying "HALP, IT DOESN'T COMPILE")12:36
dholbachinfinity, errr... do what exactly?12:36
infinitydholbach: Just saying that if you have any people with programming experience but no Debian/Ubuntu experience looking for places to contribute, I can probably make use of them in +1... I know I've seen that once or twice.12:37
infinityrbasak: I'd suggest that if merges are a prereq for upload rights, we're doing it wrong, but that's something to bring up with the DMB.12:38
infinityrbasak: Given that most merges are fairly mechanical, all those ones do is add to your upload volume rather than proving anything interesting about your skills, I'd rather see people fixing packages, submitting lots of useful patches, etc.  But, I don't vote either.12:39
* rbasak is looking forward to +1 in April12:39

pitti      if (UGSettings.get_boolean (UGSettings.KEY_PLAY_READY_SOUND))13:24
pitti            canberra_context.play (0,13:24
pittirtg_: ^ that looks promising (in unity-greeter)13:24
pitticom.canonical.unity-greeter play-ready-sound true13:24
cjwatsonThat looks like just missing -l options.  What libraries include the symbols (e.g.) skeltrack_joint_list_get_joint and gfreenect_device_new_finish?13:24
pittirtg_: so try sudo -u lightdm gsettings set com.canonical.unity-greeter play-ready-sound false13:25
rtg_pitti, ack, will give it a try13:25
pitti. o { we used to have a checkbox for this in control-center.. }13:25
Reezzcjwatson: libgfreenect-0.1.a and skeltrack-0.1.a (in /usr/local/lib)13:26
ReezzI've added the dir to the LDFLAGS .. So I don't know why it won't link properly (although I'm probably missing something here :D)13:26
rtg_pitti, hmm, dbus-launch errors.... Think I'll just redirect system-ready.ogg13:27
infinityrtg_: I believe that, instead of all this fiddling about with settings, if you just mute the volume in lightdm, it remembers that independently of your user volume.13:27
infinityThere's a speaker icon there for a reason...13:27
rtg_infinity, but I'm too stupid to remember to do it consistently.13:27
infinityrtg_: Hence the remembering part.  You only have to do it once.13:27
rtg_infinity, except that I often listen to tunes and mumble, etc13:28
infinityrtg_: As the lightdm user?13:28
rtg_infinity, you mean before I login ?13:28
infinityrtg_: Yes.13:28
rtg_ah, I'll try that13:28
rtg_back in a sec13:28
infinityrtg_: Unless we broke that, the lightdm user's volume prefs used to get saved.13:29
infinityAnd you left.13:29
ReezzWell he's trying your suggestion :)13:29
infinityYes, but how dare he run off to try something while I was still being pointlessly verbose in his direction.13:29
cjwatsonReezz: forget -L; as far as I can see you're not asking the linker to use those libraries13:32
cjwatsonReezz: the linker doesn't just look for any relevant library in the directories you provide, or anything like that.  You have to actually state the library name, either using the -l option or by adding libwhatever.a to the link line13:33
cjwatsonReezz: So  -lgfreenect-0.1 -lskeltrack-0.1  should help13:33
Reezzcjwatson: Ah, that might just be it. Gonna give it a go :D13:33
cjwatsonReezz: Basically all that -L does is govern where libraries named in -l options are looked up13:34
rtg_infinity, that did the trick, though I had to reboot to get pulseaudio (I think) to behave13:34
infinityrtg_: \o/13:36
infinityIt's nice when there's an almost intuitive solution to a simple problem.  It's a bit sad when our initial reaction to "how do I" is to go rooting around in filesystem mangling and obscure settings trees, though. :P13:36
rtg_infinity, I guess its just training from the bad ol days13:37
infinityWe were dangerously close to someone suggesting locally patching lightdm of g-s-d and rebuilding it.13:37
rtg_I _would_ like to figure out why the combination of pulse and mumble consumes 75% of my CPU. that seems kind of high.13:39
infinityYeah, I don't have a simple answer to that one. :)13:39
rtg_its eventually drops down to 20-30%. some kind of network profiling ?13:39
Reezzcjwatson: Did the trick, with full path names though :) Thanks a lot!13:40
infinityOr recalculating echo cancellation or something?13:40
infinityBut unless your computer is awful, none of those things should take much CPU, so it's still pretty clearly buggy behaviour.13:40
cjwatsonReezz: You're welcome13:40
Reezzcjwatson: might you know how to add all the known installed libraries to the search list? :x13:43
pittiReezz: you usually don't want that; normally you call pkg-config --libs to find out the linker flags for the libs you want to link with13:44
cjwatsonReezz: What pitti said; the linker has no way of its own to do what you're asking, and it's (to say the least) a highly unconventional thing to do13:45
Reezzcjwatson: Yea I understand, but there has to be a better way than manually adding each and every linked library? I'm quite new to the uni environment, but as I recall I had to export certain paths in which my used libraries (or includes, can't remember) are stated?13:47
pittiReezz: no, your build system needs to declare which library (or more abstractly, pkg-config module) it needs to link to13:48
pittiReezz: if you are using autotools there are convenient macros for that; if you are writing a plain Makefile it works similarly; just call "pkg-config --libs foo bar baz .." with all the libs you need13:49
pittiyou usually need it for --cflags more than for --libs, though13:49
cjwatsonhallyn: Hmm, I think a recent qemu change has broken grub213:50
Reezzpitti: aah, ok! Thanks :)13:50
cjwatsonhallyn: 'grub-mkrescue -o grub.iso', 'qemu -cdrom grub.iso', then type 'halt' at the GRUB prompt, and it fails to shut down - I think this is what's causing grub2 to fail to build at the moment13:50
cjwatsonThough I wonder if it's just failing to decode the ACPI table or something ...13:53
* hallyn installs xorisso...13:53
cjwatson'set debug=acpi' does sort of suggest the latter (get_sleep_type is returning -1), so maybe it's not qemu's problem; I just wonder why it changed13:54
* cjwatson sets up a quantal chroot to investigate13:55

infinityslangasek: I also need to hunt down this upstream and figure out WTF they got their compiler.15:02
infinityslangasek: It's baking in a PI of /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (note the lack of 64 in the directory name...)15:03

bdmurrayev: looking at the pastebin again I'm not clear where the system id exists in ErrorsByRelease16:45
bdmurrayev: particularly the statement in lines 24-26 regarding 'first time we saw an error from this system'16:47
evbdmurray: I originally has the system id as part of a composite for the column name, but realised it wasn't needed16:47
cjwatsonhallyn,stgraber: Right.  The problem here is that seabios moved the description of the S5 state out of the DSDT into an SSDT.  GRUB should (I think) gain the ability to parse those, but can't right now16:48
evbdmurray: we could the number of unique systems elsewhere (the denominator), we just need to somehow weight each instance of problems seen over this period (the numerator)16:49
evand we have the data to do that in the column value, the date of the first time the system which is responsible for this instance reported an error for that Ubuntu version16:50
bdmurrayso then is the statement regarding the system in lines 50-52 also unnecessary?16:56
evbdmurray: which part of it? Each column name is a uuid.uuid1(), which we create for each error coming in. Each value of that column is the date for the first time we received an error for the release, for the system reporting.16:58

evbdmurray: there doesn't need to be. Instead of providing a key, the system identifier in this case, that we use as a link off to another column family where the rest of the data lives, we just include the data we need in the ErrorsByRelease CF17:04
evwhich duplicates it, but that's a common pattern in nosql17:04

hallynjbernard is working on sysvinit scripts so we can have both upstart+sysvinit scripts there for simple boot stuff18:34
hallynanyway - i'll update cgroup-lite, thanks.18:35
slangasekNCommander: it is open source, and a proper build is in Debian and Ubuntu.  That's separate from the question of upstream distributing bustificated binaries.18:39
stgraberhallyn: np. Sorry for not noticing that the logic was wrong before I changed mountall. I wrongly assumed it'd do the "right" thing.18:39
hallynstgraber: heck, at this point it may be better to turn cgroup-lite into a mounted-cgroup script18:40
hallynbut not right now18:41
hallynstgraber: so i take it i should now not umount /sys/fs/cgroup when it stops?18:42
stgraberhallyn: right18:42

slangasekxnox: eh, how is bug #1154260 anything but a kernel bug?19:26
ubottubug 1154260 in upstart "FTBFS in test-suite on overlayfs" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/115426019:26
slangasekxnox: this is the known, "overlayfs lies about inotify support" bug19:26
infinityxnox: slangasek is refering to bug 882147, if it's not familiar to you.19:28
ubottubug 882147 in coreutils (Ubuntu) "overlayfs does not implement inotify interfaces correctly" [Undecided,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/88214719:28
infinityxnox: You could, arguably, "fix" upstart's testsuite to skip that test when it detects that it's running on overlayfs, I suppose.19:29
infinity(I was going to do the same for glibc's testsuite, then decided to just use aufs instead and lowered my blood pressure in the process)19:29
xnoxslangasek: well surely, upstart can detect broken inotify support and surely it can skip those tests?! we already skip all of inotify tests, if there is no inotify support or all inotify watches are taken up.19:32
infinityxnox: You can't detect broken inotify support.  That's part of the bug.19:32
infinityxnox: You can, however, detect that you're on a filesystem that you don't like.19:32
xnoxinfinity: and you can totally inspect mounts, add one more confsource which is the location of the overlayfs upperdir and totally get complete inotify support, for the purposes that upstart needs ;-)19:34
infinityxnox: 0x794c764f being the magic statfs constant for overlayfs, if you feel the urge.19:34
xnoxafterall we made multiple conf-sources rock for user-sessions, why can we not abuse that for system init. Since well there are _two_ /etc/init dirs when running on top of overlayfs.19:34
xnoxinfinity: sure, but the other two are combined in the same way upstart combines multiple sources.19:35
xnoxinfinity: hence upstart really just needs the upper & lower dirs separately prefferably, we combine the outputs ourself.19:35
infinityBut sure, you could do something vile like that.  I tend to think that second-guessing your VFS layer is just writing bugs for future programmers to hate you for, but...19:36
xnoxhardly vile, just willing to bend backwards to get inotify support.19:36
infinityI think it's vile to assume you know the structure of something that's meant to be opaque, yes. :P19:37
infinityThe fact that you *do* know the structure is irrelevant, it could all change tomorrow, and the bug is with you, not the kernel, cause you're only ever supposed to be "talking" to the top layer.19:38
xnoxinfinity: sure we can make the top layer authorative, but we can accept commandline options for something else to tell us where the other layers are, like for example on livecds we can be told by (casper?!) that there are other places to listen for inotify watches.19:39
slangasekxnox: I think hacking around overlayfs in upstart's test suite is a losing proposition.  Like infinity says, it's writing bugs for future programmers.19:46
slangasekxnox: tests fail when running on overlayfs because *upstart* fails to work correctly when running on overlayfs.  overlayfs at a minimum should be fixed to not lie about supporting inotify19:46
xnoxslangasek: what about establishing additional watches & rewalk confsource when we get inotify events for other (shadow) directories?19:50
slangasekxnox: doesn't that come back to assuming implementation details about overlayfs?19:51
xnoxno, it's a generic file based API to ask upstart to essentially do `initctl reload-configuration`19:53
xnoxi'm not proposing for upstart to transverse and try to figure out exactly how many times nested overlayfs there is, simply "by the way please inotifywatch this dir as well"19:54
infinityxnox: The livecd use case that everyone cares about (I installed ssh but the job isn't found) could be solved with a dpkg trigger that registers interest in /etc/init and forces a conf reload.19:57
infinityslangasek: ^19:57
slangasekxnox: sorry, my question is, "what dir"?19:57
slangasekis this a matter of passing information from the mounter to upstart?19:58
slangasekinfinity: put the trigger in casper?  we don't want to have to rely on a trigger on the installed system.  Also, this doesn't solve user jobs19:59
xnoxI am prototyping a demo locally, now. I'll post something to upstart-devel once I have it working. But yeah, it's the usecase infinity outlined above.19:59
infinityslangasek: No, have the trigger in upstart.19:59
slangasekthen that means the trigger is active post-install too20:00
infinityslangasek: But yeah, it doesn't solve user jobs on a live union.20:00
slangasekwhich is wasteful20:00
infinityIt's mildly wasteful, but I assume executes quickly.20:00
infinityIt made more sense when I suggested it six months ago, before user jobs came into the picture.20:01
infinityAnyhow, I'm going to take a jetlag-induced afternoon nap, I've been up all night.  Back later this evening.20:01
infinityI'm not wildly happy about the idea of assuming overlayfs implementation, but given that casper needs to do that already to mount the filesystem inthe first place, if it then just passes the top layer as an extra argument to upstart, that's probably not world-ending.20:03
infinityAny change in how overlayfs works would have needed a casper change regardless, so now it would just need two.20:04
xnoxinfinity: yeap.20:05

mterrywgrant, apparently we are very divergent at this point, and we didn't want to risk unforking?  (iirc)22:47
