Kano: when do you want to debug your hooks
michaellarabel: when I find the time
Kano: thats nothing you should so later but now
jdaiker: michaellarabel: ping
michaellarabel: HI jdaiker
jdaiker: michaellarabel: Interested in adding a system or two to the kernel-tracker for you. Got any scripts for me yet? ;)
michaellarabel: Yeah, sure, what email address shall I send to?
michaellarabel: jdaiker: Sent
jdaiker: michaellarabel: got 'em
jdaiker: On a semi-related note... where would I find logs about 'dependency installation errors' for a schedule test?
michaellarabel: with the directions you will install the tests prior to setting up Phoromatic so u should know right away
jdaiker: Ok.. cool.
jdaiker: I assume the account and verification codes are what puts the system on the 'daily tracker' page, right?
jdaiker: Any way to see a list of deactivated test schedules?
jdaiker: The 'Test Schedules' page only shows Actives
michaellarabel: jdaiker: Not right at the moment, though I am not sure if I even added the option to actually "deactivate" a schedule yet
jdaiker: michaellarabel: yeah... it's definitely in there (the option to deactive). No worries, though... they're easy enough to rebuild.
jdaiker: michaellarabel: having some issues installing the following for the daily-kernel-tracker suite:
jdaiker: pgbench (MD5SUM is different, apparently), x264, and graphics-magick
jdaiker: x264 apparently needs yasm >= 0.6.2 Probably a dependency issue in the test definition?
jdaiker: With the pgbench test, the postgresql-8.4.0.tar.bz2 doesn't appear on any of the mirrors. 8.4.1 and 8.4.2 are there, though.
jdaiker: michaellarabel: what is the 'git friendly' URL to clone the repos listed on phorogit.com?
jdaiker: uncle_fungus: ping
michaellarabel: pgbench md5 changed?
michaellarabel: x264 should auto install yasm on Ubuntu, jdaiker
jdaiker: well... I doubt the md5 changed... but the links to download the 8.4.0 bz2 aren't active anymore. :(
jdaiker: michaellarabel: http://ftp9.us.postgresql.org/pub/mirrors/postgresql/source/
jdaiker: notice that "v8.4.0" isn't there anymore... weird!
michaellarabel: ugh, they are deleting old versions from mirrors...
michaellarabel: if you can find v8.4.0 elsewhere, just download it and throw it into ~/.phoronix-test-suite/download-cache/ until I update the links then or the version
jdaiker: I just changed the test-resources to download and install 8.4.2 instead. :)
jdaiker: wrt x264... yasm didn't seem to install automagically
michaellarabel: well if there are performance related changes between 8.4.0 and 8.4.2 it doesn't make the numbers comparable
jdaiker: Indeed. What are your plans for dealing with newer versions of stuff, anyway?
jdaiker: with yasm: I'll see if I can find the issue, and let you know.
michaellarabel: jdaiker: In what regard? PTS supports handling newer versions and making them properly comparable, but in regards to point releases I prefer not to update against point releases that are fairly frequent in nature.
jdaiker: So you're gonna 'wing it' with point releases, then? No well-definied criteria for when an old version gets thrown out (eg postgresql and libpng, maybe?) and a new version replaces it?
jdaiker: michaellarabel: I may have found the x264/yasm issue:
jdaiker: In the 'install-ubuntu-packages.sh' script, you run $ROOT "aptitude -y install $*"
michaellarabel: jdaiker: Most projects keep all of their old releases on the server. When a new major release is out I generally update.
jdaiker: I'm running everything through ssh, without X forwarding. In my case, $ROOT=/usr/bin/sudo
jdaiker: If the quotations are removed when running the aptitude -y install command, then the installation works as planned.
michaellarabel: jdaiker: Without the quotations cause problems for other users
jdaiker: michaellarabel: I guess the postgresql issue is a corner case then... :(
michaellarabel: jdaiker: I can likely find 8.4.0 on other FTP servers still, which I will end up linking to until 8.5.0 or otherwise will upgrade to 8.4.2
jdaiker: I wonder if you should encase the whole command in backticks?
jdaiker: michaellarabel: I think this is a good link for the postgresql: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/pgsql/PostgreSQL%208.4.X/PostgreSQL%208.4.0/postgresql-8.4.0.tar.bz2
jdaiker: I think that'll automagically pick a decent mirror, too. I put that in the pgbench download.xml and it worked like a charm.
jdaiker: michaellarabel: any way to remove a system from the 'Systems' menu on phoromatic.com?
michaellarabel: jdaiker: No way right now
