zequenceem22_: Have you tried the latest kernel?03:37
zequenceem22_: Also, I might have the same bug you have when installing many OSs on the same machine. I have a feeling only Raring has it03:38
zequenceem22_: 9 times out of 10, I'm not able to get past partitioning03:38
zequenceem22_: I haven't found to have the problems you have with the kernel, and if the problem doesn't exist on a more recent version, there's no need for a bug report03:47
zequenceDuring the development period, the maintenance workflow for the kernels is a little different, and there's a chance something was forgotten for one of the releases03:48
zequenceMeaning, for one of the kernel versions03:48
len-1304I don't know that I have a bug or not... Doing something an app is not designed for and having it fail is not really a bug I guess.06:26
len-1304I installed onto a USB stick (32G) and found that ubiquity doe snot like USB sticks that already have a linux FS on them. I had previously installed xubuntu on it. But ubiquity would not get to the partitioner. If I pulled the USB stick out it was fine. I tried reformatting to ext4 again, but that didn't work... formatted Fat32 and it worked fine.06:30
len-1304The system runs really slow on a USB stick. Slower than a live iso on a USB stick.06:31
len-1304zequence, I'm Off to bed. 13.04 seems to work just fine anything I have tried. Both live and install.06:47
em22sorry, I was away, now it looks like everyone has left too.   The main problems with the installer is that if any partitions are mounted, or especially if the SWAP is mounted then partman will hang.  once partman hangs it stays hung, it never exits,  and any further attempts to run it will also hang becuase of the already hung session.  I have added that info to the already existing bug.  This is why the problem is not seen on a 07:06
em22clean install, because a clean install does not yet have a swap file.  but if there is a swap file and it is automatically activated, that is when partman gets into trouble.  see bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/108070107:06
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1080701 in ubiquity (Ubuntu Raring) "After 'Preparing to install Ubuntu' screen, raring installation hangs" [High,Confirmed]07:06
em22but the other bugs I was talking about are:   #1165259 13.04 Beta1 -- symlink missing for Linux Headers /usr/src   | no one has triaged this yet, but I feel it is a release blocker. so I am concerned about the lack of response.07:08
em22other bugs: are of less concern:   #1164789 partman hangs if laptop not plugged into power   |   #1164783 during manual partitioning, the size is off-by-one, this causes unexpected resizing |  #1164787 Partition Summary Silder Bar does not display the last partition 07:09
em22Im really excited about this new release!  it is the first time that the audio has actually worked correctly on my HP laptop.  Unfortunatly, I still cant use it, becuase it causes my laptop to overheat.  My laptop hit 94C under moderate load, before I turned off the power...  that is seriously hot.  12.04 does not have this problem.  it actually started with 12.1007:12
em22well, I've got to call it a night too, but hopefully you will see the above info when you come back.   Good Night07:13
smartboyhwzequence: Cheers for making the announcement on G+07:57

smartboyhwzequence: For the first time, I heard somebody in the G+ community going for Unity 09:03
em22_zequence: all I can tell you is that the symlink issue does NOT affect 12.04 or 12.10,  or anything earlier.  I have never encountered this prior to 13.04.   I have not yet tried installing the generic kernel on 13.04 but I have installed it on 12.10 and 12.04 without encountering this bug.09:11
em22thank you for following up on this.  goodnight09:13
smartboyhwem22 that IS weird. Anyway, good night.09:14
em22not so weird... basically somebody fumble-fingered the folder name or links, a simple oversight easily fixed, but with substantial consequence09:17
zequencelinux-lowlatency is based on linux-generic, which has changed a bit over the releases, and we're not yet developing linux-lowlatency during development cycles. We just maintain it when it's released in stable releases09:22
zequenceWhen -generic changes, so does -lowlatency, and in this case, something in the -lowlatency source was probably just not named properly09:22
zequenceTo make it linux-lowlatency, instead of just linux09:23
zequenceI'm still looking at the problem. The build system for linux kernels is a bit more extensive then for many other packages09:23
zequenceAs it needs to have arch specific stuff, etc09:23
smartboyhwzequence: What do ya think of the points the person raised about Unity in our G+ community?09:24
em22eh...  perhaps I should qualify that statement by saying that I have only explictly looked at the links on 12.04 and 13.04, but I have installed virtualbox on all ofthem above and only encountered the problem on 13.0409:27
em22now I really am going to bed, it's 3am09:27
zequenceem22: Once I find the problem, i can have a look at earlier sources too09:32
zequenceThere's no problem building modules on 13.04 though09:32
zequenceProbably just need to install the correct headers09:32
zequenceWhich seems to be the -generic headers in this case, together with the -lowlatency (symlinked) ones09:33
zequencegeneric does symlinking too, but -lowlatency is apparently not using the right names for the symlinks09:33

em22zequence: the correct headers are there, it's just that the symlinks have the wrong dir name16:47
=== smartboyhw_ is now known as smartboyhw
zequenceem22: Yeah, but installing -generic headers would make the symlinks work is what I mean17:00
* zequence sighs17:53
* zequence is wondering if las will ever stop blaming all jack, ardour and pulseaudio bugs on Ubuntu packaging17:54
em22zequence: yes, and depending on what the differences are between generic and lowlatency, it could either work fine or lead to some nearly impossible to locate bugs17:58
zequenceem22: I was looking at the code, but haven't found the actual error yet. btw, I should try to reproduce it first, and confirm your bug report17:59
zequenceem22: My guess is, as the kernels are so alike, that there is no difference on those bits, but that's just a really big guess, since I actually have no idea18:01
em22okay...   I think I will install Beta2 today and see how that goes...   by the way, I probably should have mentioned in the bug report that these are 64 bits  Ive been testing.18:02
em22I prefer not to play russion roulette ...  there are way too many problems as it is without introducing subtle random variants18:03
zequenceem22: Yeah, that could make a difference, as there are some diffs for archs as far as debian/rules goes18:03
em22okay, I will update the bugs  to clarify.....   I was expecting to see some selction boxes for such things, but fiind none...  and yet on some other peoples bugs I see all kinds of info about that build, but I see no way to add that.18:05
zequenceem22: How did you report it? ubuntu-bug linux-lowlatency?18:05
zequenceOh, you reported the meta18:06
em22yes, I used the web interface, because I assumed a need for my user name and I don't have the new os configed yet with my documents etc18:07
zequenceem22: All you need is a launchpad account18:08
em22yes, right, but getting to that account info from the newly installed os was not possible....   I keep all my important stuff in a virtual machine and did not have that setup yet18:09
em22as it turns out, I totally cannot run virtual machines on 13.04  that's how I hit 94C was just from the load of an idle vm18:10
em2212.04 works great for me except for the audio does not work and bluetooth does not work18:11
len-1304I have found that if I use ubuntu-bug even on a new install, it just asks me to login when the browser opens and then the rest is prettyy much automatic.18:11
em22yes, well, I have far too many accounts to keep track of, I dont have any of my logins memorized except for the vm password18:11
em22everything else I look up18:12
len-1304Ah, ok.18:12
em2213.04 everything works except for this temperature problem.  so I am really very frustrated right now... so close and yet so far...18:14
em22earlier, people were talking about Unity...  something on G+...   link?    I hope this does not mean that people are considering switching from XFCE to Unity?18:14
len-1304I don't think so.18:14
zequenceNo, we won't be changing desktops very easily. I'd rather add support for more of them instead. 18:15
len-1304unity is unusable on most of my systems. Too slow to get anything done.18:15
len-1304Even my wife who just does browsing and office type stuff gave up on it.18:15
em22good, I think the concept of a one size fits all interface is just totally wrong.  It would be like replacing the steering wheel and gas pedal of a car with a motorcycle handlebar18:16
len-1304unity is a consumer IF, Studio is a creation OS and needs a content creation IF with more flexibility18:17
zequenceI use Gnome3 myself. Or awesome. Personally, I find the menu a waste of time, but then, I'm pretty comfortable using mostly my keyboard, and it works with my workflows18:19
zequenceIf I had more time, I would probably do a Gnome3 version, just for the fun of it. Making it look slick and have some multimedia specific extensions18:20
zequenceYou can add a menu to it pretty easily, if you want18:20
zequenceAnd, I think it's very fast, as well18:20
em22unity is a cellphone interface....  and it is great to see that ubuntu now runs on cellphones, but my laptop is not a cellphone and my desktop will probably never have a touchscreen.  IMHO it's just totally wrong to try to make everything work the same when they are not at all the same.  ditto your point about content creators vs content consumers.   The thing about menus is that they make information discoverable.  with unity yo18:21
em22u can hardly even tell the difference between a program that is running and a button to launch the program...18:21
zequenceDiscovering applications is not something you do on a daily basis. It's once in a while, and then you have many ways to do that. Searching by tag is one way18:23
em22I have not looked at Gnome3 in a long time.  I guess if it's approaching stability it could be interesting.  18:24
zequenceBut, I can agree that it feels disorientating to use Unity or Gnome dash, before you get used to it18:24
zequenceI think Gnome3 is quite ok. It's just that it's not polished by any distro. you can improve functionality by adding extensions, which are basically java script plugins18:25
em22well, I create my own quick launcher with the stuff I use daily, for everything else I prefer a menu that I can read instead of inscrutable icons 18:25
zequenceThis is the place for extensions https://extensions.gnome.org/18:25
zequenceJust finding that page is not apparent, when on vanilla Gnome18:26
zequenceI guess these are reasons why they are planning their own OS18:26
em22also I find a couple of quick clicks far superios to typing commands in what is supposed to be a GUI interface.  if I wanted to type stuff I'd use terminal....  well, actually I do spend a lot of my time in terminal18:26
em22speaking of terminals....  is there any chance I could talk people into considering the replacement of xfce term with gnome-terminal?   if you only do stuff locally then xfce is essentially identical...  but if you spend half your life in ssh then gnome-terminal is vastly superior because of it's support for multiple profiles with custom colors etc.18:29
zequenceem22: Easily installable :)18:30
em22actually its a bit fiddly to get it to be your default terminal18:30
zequenceem22: The philosophy I have is that we try to keep as close to Xubuntu as possible, to reduce maintenance issues18:31
em22okay, that is sound reasoning18:31
zequenceem22: But, that's just me. We did have more of the Gnome apps until 13.0418:31
em22yes,  I saw that 13.04 went back to using thunar instead of nautilus18:33
em22In general I much prefer nautilus, there are certain things that you can't do in thunar....  or at least past tense....   these latest versions are a whole new ballgame though, thunar has improved and nautilus is not even recognizable....  18:35
em22which I guess is also one of my complaints about Gnome...  the user interface is constantly making radical changes.    after you train an office full of not-very-computer-savvy workers how to use something, the last thing you want are radical changes in that interface.  it means huge retraining and support costs18:38
len-1304The new nautilus seems to have lost functionality18:44
len-1304The search feature doesn't have the flexibility it used to. Basically thunar now seems to have more features than nautilus any more18:45
em22well, not sure it's lost anything...  but it's been modularized so that you have to browse synaptic and install separet addons18:45
len-1304Gee thanks.18:45
len-1304So maintaining a distro with it becomes more work.18:46
em22yes...  I was quite surprised/shocked by the changes that had been made18:46
zequenceIt has lost some functions18:47
len-1304We switched to nautilus in 12.04 because thunar was buggy. Thunar has gotten better and nautilus worse.18:47
em22not sure I am going to remain a fan of nautilus18:47
zequenceThey took out the treeview in list mode, but I read they're readding it18:47
zequenceThe search functionality I find irritating now18:48
zequenceOther than those, I suppose most of what you'll ever need is still there18:48
zequenceJust aesthetics on the rest18:48
em22yes, I think its a good call...      guess I never really used the search functionality...  I never found any of the GUI search programs to be very good, silly me, I prefer cli: locate18:49
zequenceI just got spam through a mail list, with no sender, originally sent Feb 200618:50
len-1304catfish has gotten much better.18:50
len-1304Catfish is a gui search. (our new default)18:50
em22it's good to be innovative and try new ways of doing the GUIs, but I feel that programmers do not appear to be spending enough time thinking about their target users, mostof whom are not very computer savvy.18:51
em22spam...  hmmm.  well maybe it get stuck in a queue somewhere, but more liekly it's just a poor job of forging the headers.18:51
len-1304Ya, but I think Ubuntu right now (speaking about vanilla)  is trying to aim at non-computer users, those who don't use linux now. Anyone who likes things the way they are is already using linux. They are looking for a new "market"18:53
len-1304Time will tell if they get it right18:53
zequenceOr no. There is a From:. But, anyway. Not often you get 6 years old mail18:53
len-1304Old virus.18:54
em22yes, an abandoning their existing market in the process.   distrowatch has already told that they are wrong...  tens of thousands of people have switched to alternatives.  also, those icons just dont seem like the right approach.... windows 8 had the same experience.18:55
zequenceWindows 8 is a gigantic switch though, compared to how little Windows has been changing over the past 20 years18:55
zequenceSo, it's not strange that people are finding it hard to adjust18:56
em22its far easier to teach a non-computer user to read a menu then it is to have them memorize a zillion icons.... speaking as someone who has done a lot of teaching of computer users...18:56
zequencenon savvy users often only use something like three applications though18:56
zequenceor maybe four18:57
em22okay....  well....  so you hit them with 20 icons....  inscrutable images and no hover tips...18:58
em22and on top of that the icons keep getting hidden.....18:59
em22do you know how hard it can be to teach people how to use a minimize button that is right in front of them...?   I just did that yesterday....  not easy.  the icons are even more obtuse.19:00
em22well, nice chatting, but Ive got code to write...  and I guess another beta to test :-)   so Ill be going now19:02
zequenceem22: See you around19:04
zequenceem22: And thanks for taking time with bug hunting19:04
em22yes, you are welcome,  I look forward to chatting again soon. 19:05
zequenceThink I found the bug for the header linking19:40
zequenceSeems like a found another bug -- missing build dependencies21:21
zequenceI'm being stupid now..21:28
zequencemakes little sense making a symbolic link link to itself21:28
zequenceObviously, the headers should depend on -generic headers21:29
zequencehmm, there are two header dirs.. surprise21:41
zequencelen-dt: Just noticed it's possible to do polls on LP. Didn't read about how Xubuntu will be choosing their lead, but I'm thinking that would be a good way later on. A launchpad vote22:40
zequenceI'm thinking 14.04 would be suitable for that22:41
zequenceThe release of it, I mean22:41
zequenceor, by the release of it, more correctly22:41
zequenceI'm learning more about how LP works today. About projects, project groups, milestones, etc22:42
zequenceIt's a bit difficult to orientate among some of the projects and teams, as they are ver alike22:42
zequenceAt least for someone who doesn't know LP very well22:43
zequenceSo, I'm going to do something about that22:43
zequenceXubuntu has a nice system with different coloring on some teams. I guess they are not alone in that. Works pretty well. Think we should do that too22:43
zequenceAnd make projects not look like teams22:43
len-dtYa, that all makes sense. I understand the need for structure, but I have never been good at it.22:51
len-dtIt is a problem in everything I do, I see the solution, but am not so good at making easy to follow up on.22:52
len-dtTeaching math is really hard because it is too easy to see the solution without the steps to get there. Making myself think through the whole thing is something I am learning.22:54
