Natty

Release Meeting Items

  • In Progress:
    • 508516: wakeup from sleep fails on toshiba nb305

      • analysis seems to show this is a nasty BIOS bug in SMI handling which has a dependancy on how timers are programmed, there is a work around via command line parameters which is being release noted, work continues on a quirk for this behaviour
    • 539467: SATA link power management causes disk errors and corruption

      • sata link control is disabled in pmutils in Natty, debugging of the issue with upstream is ongoing; slightly different settings seem to work better (medium power instead of minimum). Likely controller related. A fix for the Nvidia mcp65 in low power mode is in testing with positive feedback. As there are other reports of ALPM issues with other controllers we will leave it disabled in pm-utils for Natty
    • 542660: New Apple iMac (Core i5) fails to display anything

      • issue remains intractible, more intensive debugging required, this will not be fixed before release, moved out to natty-updates
    • 608312: USB host mode on OTG doesn't work on Maverick with BeagleBoard

      • possible fix exists, need to understand why this has not been applied
    • 625364: lenovo/thinkpad R500/T6x/T400[s]/T500/W500/W700/X60/X200 suspend fails

      • this seems to be a bug in KMS, there is a work around via chvt which we could enable through a pm-utils update in the short term, needs investigation
    • 634487: t1.micro instance hangs when installing java

      • not reproducible in a local test rig, somehow specific to EC2, investigation continues
    • 674984: Unable to wake up from suspend on Dell M101z

      • there is a possible fix for this in Natty, waiting on testing results
    • 686388: [i965gm] GPU lockup - Invalid GTT entry during Display B Fetch

      • it seems that these may now be resolved, awaiting testing
    • 710738: Regression latest kernel breaks my Atheros AR5001 wifi

      • possible work around via disabling hwcrypt, awaiting testing
    • 712075: [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid

      • problem remains with the latest kernels, needs investigation
    • 719620: Toshiba Tecra A11 - System doesn't resume after suspend

      • it is suspected that this is a BIOS issue, attempts to update the BIOS are ongoing
    • 746751: kernel: [Firmware Bug]: the BIOS has corrupted hw-PMU resources (MSR 38d is 30)

      • it seems that this is currently non-reproducible, monitoring
    • 747090: wrong return address sometimes pushed for INT in kvm (not qemu)

      • preliminary fix for this is now available, testing shows it is good. Applied to Natty for the next upload, Fix Committed
    • 750649: [Lenovo W510/T410] System is unable to suspend

      • testing with the Nvidia drivers has been requested, and we await the results
    • 753071: Include DRM OMAP driver to have proper EDID detection

      • there is a huge patchset for this issue, it is likely too high risk to take before release
  • Closed
    • 720949: Dell Wireless 1702 dual wifi/bluetooth: bluetooth not detected

      • is now Fix Released
    • 731878: shutdown(2) behavior changed in kernel

      • is now Fix Released

performance-dx-n-gesture-tuning (1/0/3)

By UDS, people will have had a chance to work with our gesture engine. What's going well? What should we do more of? What's broken? What needs fine-tuning? In particular, we want to focus on these two areas: * how well are gestures being recognized and parsed by the engine? * how are users finding the actual physical gestures defined for Maverick? Note that some issues will be hardware/firmware problems, kernel driver problems; how can we mitigate these? how can we get folks clued into tools such as the N-trig calibrator for Linux that Rafi wrote? One example, from Henrik: "...the two-finger pinch. At first, we wanted to use a focus point for propagation, such that a point in between was were the events would go. Then we learned that it might be better to use the common visible branch of windows, which often means coming down to the root window. But I realize that when placing one finger first, in a window, and putting a second down to zoom, it does not matter where that [second] finger is." Tags: hci-n, hci, touch, multi-touch, multitouch, gestures, algorithms. optimization

multimedia-desktop-n-xorg-general-planning (0/1/1)

Discussion of general X / mesa / libdrm plans for Natty. General decisions to make: * What release of X to target? * What release of mesa to target? * What release of -intel, -ati, -nouveau to target? * How do we decide when to install nouveau 3D by default? Natty-specifics queries: * What to do about r300c / r300g mesa DRI drivers * Will we need to do anything about r600c / r600g?

raof

Postponed

multimedia-platform-n-pro-audio-secured (2/1/3)

What do we need to bridge the gap between the Pro audio's need for reliably low latency, and Ubuntu's secure and just-works standard? E g: FFADO udev rules, jack and rtkit integration, adding memlock features to rtkit, make PA a jack client when jack starts, add a jack engine whenever a FW soundcard is plugged in, etc? Perhaps we can't or shouldn't do all of these for Natty, but having some of them would be nice.

None

other-n-security-apparmor (2/30/32)

Discussion of AppArmor plans during the Natty cycle.

jdstrand

Complete

packageselection-foundations-n-grub2-boot-framebuffer (3/2/6)

GRUB2 supports programming a VBE mode in the boot loader and telling the kernel about it, causing the kernel to use a framebuffer at boot. With Linux 2.6.34, vesafb/efifb can hand over smoothly to a KMS driver, allowing us to assemble all of this into something very close to a flicker-free boot splash process.
