Default Mobile Activity Report for March 12-18

== public ==

* bug: #336770 confirmed to be fixed (did several time consuming test installs on NSLU2) (4-8h each)

* bug: #328167 still no further findings, upstream of gnome-keyring-daemon didnt answer yet ...

* assemble and release first hand-rolled babbage image on http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogra/arm/babbage/

* researching breakage with imx51 kernel if aufs/apparmor is enabled in the kernel

* researching issue with useradd enforcing password update if "last changed" field in /etc/shadow is zero (which breaks livefs builds on systems where the clock is at 01011970)



= PaulLarson =

== Mobile/Testing ==

* Started mirroring daily MID and UNR builds locally

* Received an Eee 900 - installed current UNR build on it

* Installed current UNR build a Dell mini 9 I also have at home

* Phone meeting with lool to discuss objectives

* Exchanged some email with Chris Gregan about QA and Testplans in general

* Performed some ad-hoc testing on UNR with two different netbooks

* Bugs opened:

* * 341756 - gnome-display-properties crashed with SIGSEGV in strlen()

* * 344443 - netbook-launcher slow on eee 900

* * 344449 - Installer puts up confusing message about partitions in use

* * 344884 - /var/lib/python-support/python2.6/sqlalchemy/ext/activemapper.py:262: SyntaxWarning: assertion is always true, perhaps remove parentheses?* sqlalchemy (Ubuntu)



= MichaelCasadevall =

== ARM==

* * Did a quick and dirty packaging an arm-none-eabi binutils/gcc which proved to be unne

* * Hacked up RedBoot to build with native ARM toolchain

* * Packaged both FSL's RedBoot and ecosconfig and redboot-imx/ecosconfig-imx

* * Received FFes for both packages, and uploaded (passed REVU and NEW queue)

* * Wrote MIRs for both, pending action from ubuntu-mir

* * Began researching d-i port for imx51



= LoïcMinier =

== ARM ==

* More fis/fconfig work, good progress but underestimated the task at hand and some issues such as the fact that default config entries differ from platform to platform, as well as endianness and type sizes; almost done with an implementation doing the fconfig -i equivalent

* Continued pushing for and discussing a native build of RedBoot, gave remote access to slangasek who nicely offered to help; NCommander got it to work, but it's hackish in that it's linked to libc.a

* Worked on NEON hwcaps support in the kernel also aimed at glibc; had to request last minute inclusion of two (trivial) 2.6.29 patches and discover later that the Babbage hardware we currently have has a broken NEON implementation which allows some userspace programs to crash the board; the kernel's NEON bits aren't affected though

* Got back on the ffmpeg runtime NEON detection threads

* Worked with IS on updating the kernel of the Armel builds and porter box for a) VFP fixes and b) NEON hwcaps; asked ARM how to workaround forcing the board id as we do



== Misc ==

* Touched base with Steve and David on UNR planning for karmic

* Made debian-maintainers buildable under Ubuntu thanks to hint from Colin, sent changes to Debian

* Spent some time giving initial goals to Paul and presenting our high level objectives and compiling some information to get started

* Tested a new patch for SVDO DPMS issues on my G33 board

* Debugged the glibc assertion errors further with Aurélien; Debian has a couple of patches to fix this now thanks to Aurélien

* Tested two KVM fixes for display glitches

* Fixed powernowd errors in init script caused by the new module-init-tools



= SteveKowalik =

== Misc ==

* Thursday archive admin duties

* Alpha-6 testing for MID and UNR

* Fix python-hildondesktop since it was horribly broken, and nurse MID back to health

* A little NBS work.



= Tobin Davis =

== Mobile ==

* Continued testing of MID and UNR images

* Setup of virtual machines for automation test development and LSB testing environment

* Filed bug #345126 - Installer on UNR image creates too small swap partition (384M on 1G system)

* Floated idea of dynamic swap file vs dedicated partition on Warthogs mailing list.* Several advantages over dedicated partition, especially on MID/Netbook systems with limited storage.

With the updates that are taking place is it neccessary to download a new IMG file or are the updates taking place on the machine patching the additions on?
