Yes, I know you do ;)

These are mess so here is what I was doing just a while ago:

<amjjawad> Oh, launchpad is down/broken for some reason! why such things
happen during before a milestone release?!
<amjjawad> infinity, I'm testing Ubuntu GNOME images and these are true
mess :(
<infinity> amjjawad: Security updates, it's only temporary.
<wxl> amjjawad: for more info on that, see #canonical-sysadmin.
<amjjawad> infinity, the installation is broken and I just can't install
<amjjawad> wxl, "Technically, this is a 503 error and has been caused by
our database being temporarily offline. " but thanks for your advice :)
<wxl> amjjawad: have you read the topic at #canonical-sysadmin?
<amjjawad> infinity,
<infinity> amjjawad: I'm staying far away from this milestone.
<wxl> amjjawad: you can see who is involved in this milestone here
<wxl> suffice it to say, flocculant is asleep
<wxl> i believe stgraber is handling the canonical side of things, right,
infinity ?
<amjjawad> Thanks infinity and wxl then guess I have to wait as there is
nothing I can do except confirming bugs.
<wxl> amjjawad: you do know you can get around the upower bug by running
off ac power only, right?
<infinity> The upower bug was fixed, it just needs a respin.
<amjjawad> wxl, I'm testing on Oracle VB. Not sure if that applies to that
as well?!
<infinity> (which stgraber left up to the flavours to do themselves)
<wxl> infinity: not true. flocculant triggered a respin and doesn't work.
<amjjawad> how can I know if I have access to do a re-spin or not? can I
<amjjawad> to be more accurate: a re-spin for Ubuntu GNOME images only.
<wxl> amjjawad: if you have an SSO login to the tracker and you have an LP
membership that allows you to, for example, mark images as ready, you can
select a rebuild in the same area there
<wxl> amjjawad: just click the right images, and click rebuild. bvut again,
i don't think it will help
<amjjawad> wxl, indeed, I have access to mark them as ready but never
touched "re-spin" as of now.
<infinity> lftp cdimage.ubuntu.com:/ubuntu-gnome/daily-live/20160222.2> cat
xenial-desktop-amd64.manifest | grep upower
<wxl> amjjawad: and yes, if your host has a battery, remove the battery and
run off of AC power and your vm will work.
<infinity> gir1.2-upowerglib-1.0   0.99.4-1
<infinity> The latest version isn't in those images.
<infinity> libupower-glib3:amd64 0.99.4-1
<infinity> upower 0.99.4-1
<infinity> wxl: It'll help.
<wxl> infinity: it isn't in the xubuntu images?
* anpok has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
<amjjawad> darkxst, I'll give it a go!
* kenvandine has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
<infinity> wxl: The newest xubuntu images have -2.
<cyphermox> infinity: jibel asked me to do a respin earlier too, but I have
no access to do that
<wxl> infinity: --which is supposedly the fix, right?
<infinity> wxl: Yes.
<wxl> infinity: and what i'm telling you is dear flocculant already tested
it and no dice.
<wxl> infinity: i know the bug is fix released. i know pitti worked on it.
it didn't fix it.
<amjjawad> is there any harm if one does a re-spin?!
<infinity> Or the testing methodology was lacking.  I'm happy to believe
<infinity> amjjawad: No.
<wxl> amjjawad: no harm. go for it.
<amjjawad> perfect :D
<wxl> amjjawad: if you DO get success, let me know.
<amjjawad> wxl, sure ;)
<wxl> amjjawad: but the battery removal WILL work.
<amjjawad> request a rebuild, right?
<wxl> do it
<amjjawad> wxl, yes, will remember the battery thing.

I requested a re-build:

I will keep you posted/updated (hopefully) in any case whether all is good
or not.


Remember: "All of us are smarter than any one of us."
