smbapw, what is the supposed time frame?07:54
apwsmb, he has his head in the cabinet right now, he is supprised to find it already done, cause he hasn't read the damn history07:58
smbapw, At least him being present is already a surprise. Heck, who reads documentation these days...07:59
apwif i was going to an angry customer i would not want any supprises07:59
smbapw, He'd only know you are angry if he'd read the documentation07:59

henrixbrendand: yesterday sconklin was bisecting the kernel to figure out about that regression08:08
henrixbrendand: i'm not sure if he's done with that08:08
brendandhenrix, but isn't there a bug number?08:09
henrixbrendand: ah, yes sorry. give me 1 min...08:09
henrixbrendand: so, there were a couple of bugs. bug #1167114, bug #1169380 and bug #116896108:10
ubot2Launchpad bug 1167114 in linux (Ubuntu) "Ubuntu Kernel 3.5.0-27 does not boot" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/116711408:10
ubot2Launchpad bug 1169380 in linux (Ubuntu) "Alienware M11x fails to boot with 3.2.40 upgrade" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/116938008:10
ubot2Launchpad bug 1168961 in linux (Ubuntu) "Linux kernel 3.2.0-40-generic update causes regression, does not boot anymore" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/116896108:10
henrixbrendand: i'm pretty sure sconklin will be very happy if you have a system where you can easily reproduce the issue :)08:11
brendandhenrix, we'll keep an eye out for it08:12
henrixbrendand: great, thanks08:12
brendandhenrix, by the way, i don't see any comment about a potential regression in https://bugs.launchpad.net/kernel-sru-workflow/+bug/1167157, but since the bugs are affecting the quantal kernel we can assume 12.04.2 is likely to be affected, right?08:14
ubot2Launchpad bug 1167157 in Kernel SRU Workflow certification-testing "linux-lts-quantal: 3.5.0-28.47~precise1 -proposed tracker" [Medium,In progress]08:14
henrixbrendand: yes, i believe you can assume that although i haven't seen any bug report08:16
brendandhenrix, hmm. all the bug reports mention the -updates kernel rather than -proposed08:16
brendandhenrix, did you notice that?08:17
henrixbrendand: yes, the regression has been introduced by a kernel that has been released already08:17
brendandhenrix, that means though that there's no reason to hold this kernel for a bug that already has been released08:18
brendandhenrix, also we did full testing for the last kernel and certainly didn't see any boot regressions so i'm not confident we'll be able to help, but we will try08:19
henrixbrendand: i see what you mean, but since there are a *lot* of people hitting this bug, we would like to have it sorted out asap08:20
brendandhenrix, of course08:20
brendandhenrix, just keep us posted if you are going to respin08:20
henrixbrendand: ok. today i havent check the progress yet, not sure if the root cause has been already identified. will go through those bugs later08:21

Kalidarnvery rarely ive found im having a kernel panic09:38
Kalidarni decided to take a photograph of it here09:39
Kalidarnwould i be right in saying this is before a network interface is brought up? meaning netconsole won't be possible09:39
Kalidarnyes i have a big monitor, that's everything that was on it09:39
Kalidarnive had it panic twice since i installed raring ringtail, unfortunately the error spat out on the screen isn't all that meaningful09:40
Kalidarnall i can tell is that it failed on some GPL module09:40
Kalidarnby the way it says: Pid: 1250: Tainted GF09:41
Kalidarnthe system doesn't have any serial ports unfortunately either09:41
Kalidarnnever had a kernel panic in 12.10, but ive had two, when booting raring ringtail (been using it for 3 or so days)09:41
Kalidarnand yes i'm a kernel debug noob, i have looked at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelDebuggingTricks and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelDebuggingTricks#Network_Console however09:43
Kalidarnas someone in #kernelnewbies suggested i try netconsole09:43

psivaainfinity: plars said he will take it, he was busy trying to reproduce a bug yesterday for raring release 11:55

psinowhich kernel version is in ubuntu raring? 3.8.0 or does it follow the 3.8.y git tree? more speficially, is it based on this release mentioned here: http://lwn.net/Articles/547533/? :)12:51
smbpsino, type "head Makefile" in the top level directory :)12:55
=== 64MACWWPM is now known as AlexB
infinitypsino: Current raring kernel is 3.8.8-based, yes.12:59
rtgpsino, bjf just hacked in some wiki info about how Ubuntu kernels are versioned.13:01
bjfrtg, link?13:01
apwrtg, isn't there a FAQ entry on that in the wiki already?13:02
rtgbjf, I was depending on you to remember the link :)13:02
bjfrtg, yes, but does psino know it?13:03
psinonope, psino doesn't know it, and doesn't seem to be able to find it13:03
smbrtg, bjf Maybe it would be worth to add the link to factoids13:03
bjfpsino, ^13:04
bjfpsino, also the FAQ right before that one on the same page13:04
psinoI saw those entries, but I'm not sure how I can determine that http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/kernel/linux-image-3.8.0-19-generic is actually 3.8.813:05
bjfpsino, it's not 3.8.8. we may have not applied all the patches. this can be the case is we've already picked up some patches earlier or if we found regressions and removed them13:06
rtgpsino, thats 'cause its _not_ 3.8.813:06
smbpsino, Basically the Makefile contains that info in sublevel13:07
bjfpsino, the only way to see what we've done is to look at the git repo13:07
psinoI was really happy to see that the 3.8.8 announcement included patches for some issues I've been slightly bugging smb about13:07
psinosmb: SUBLEVEL = 0 ?13:07
bjfpsino, we _try_ to apply all the stable updates for any given upstream stable release but there is no guarantee13:08
smbpsino, Not for me http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-raring.git;a=blob;f=Makefile;h=290499c32aaa0d9b914ea0216df74ad82fcb9a83;hb=HEAD13:09
psinosmb: I see, I'm probably looking at the wrong places as I don't have a checkout or anything on this machine13:11
psinobjf: ok, in this case, by looking at the ubuntu-raring.git repo, the patches I'm interested in have been applied13:12
bjfpsino, cool, that really is the only way to kno for sure13:12
smbpsino, Ah ok. Yes that link is into the current tree13:12
psinoin any case, around a week ago I built my own kernel based on the ubuntu sources with the patches applied to see if it was stable / fixed the issue, which it did13:13
psinosmb: looking at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-raring.git;a=summary, the indicates that the commits I needed are in 19.2913:14
smbSo at least things should be fixed if you would base on 3.8.0-19.29. Indeed13:14
psinoso now I'm just happy to wait for 13.04 to get a final release so I can move this out into production :)13:15
smbThat kernel is available if you dist-upgrade even now (if you have a raring installation already)13:16
plarsinfinity, psivaa: yeah, it's going to happen today. ec2 is a bit of a pain right now, and I'm waiting on a few bits from IS, then I can hopefully streamline some of that13:18
psivaaplars: ack, thank you13:19
smbplars, How can EC2 *ever* be a pain? ;-P13:19
plarssmb: well, in theory it *shouldn't* be13:20
psinosmb, bjf, rtg: thanks for your help :)13:20
smbplars, I know, I know. In theory the world is round. :) Any special issues with the kernel or more "environmental"?13:22
smbpsino, you are welcome13:22
plarssmb: no, well, kinda13:23
plarssmb: the kernel regression tests hardcode /dev/sdb2 to use for the scratch drive, I've talked to bjf about that already.  Unfortunately it looks like a lot of places it's hardcoded13:23
plarssmb: on ec2, if you map ebs or ephemeral disk to sdb, parted errors out on it, apparently a known limitation in the kernel driver - not sure of the details off the top of my head13:24
smbplars, Ah yeah, that could be an issue for kvm too (if you use pv disks)13:24
plarssmb: you can map it to /dev/xvda and it all works fine, but then the kernel regression tests don't work - workaround was to just use a stupid symlink for now13:25
plarssmb: good to know13:25
plarssmb: unfortunately, the version of ec2-api-tools I have doesn't seem to like mapping ephemeral disks to /dev/xvd*, I talked to utlemming about it and he said the new version of tools *should* fix that, but I don't see it in the ppa still13:26
plarssmb: so it's a bunch of workarounds at the moment13:26
smbplars, Yeah it is all a bit messy. Maybe if xen never had called the paravirtualized disks sd*. Though it could have been that back then everything else would have failed13:27
smbHm, could be the for Lucid ec2 there may or may not be that patch that names things to sd* still. I slowly loose a bit of track...13:29

brycesforshee, btw bug #1041790 has been hitting quite a few people, and now has a patch upstream which should ameliorate things and may be worth your consideration for sru's.  Jason Warner was hitting it (and now is disabling semaphores as a workaround).23:45

bjfbryce, we have a test kernel but jason said he was too busy to test23:55
brycebjf, "maybe".  we never got to a verification that 1041790 and 1140716 are the same.  But didn't rule it out either.23:57
bjfbryce, testing a kernel could help :-)23:57
bjfbryce, but i can understand that preparing slide decks is more important than bugs affecting a number of users ;-)23:59
brycebjf, Jason is waiting for the rest of his computer HW to arrive (by ship!) but said once he has more than one PC he can help with testing23:59
