When acpica-tools is not installed, running acpidump or acpixtract produces no suggestions (in either Bionic or Cosmic):

Here’s a small patch to fix the spelling of comparative + than, which is currently misspelled as comparative + then in a couple of places.

I made a note about the failure in my kanban (yesterday) at ”13:17:10 GMT+0300 (EEST)”, so that would have been 10:17:10 UTC.

Feature request: searchability

Sijainti: Keskustelupalstat: WordPress Support Forums
Avainsanat: saavutettavuus, WordPress

Thanks for the excellent plugin! I’ve only had one issue so far: the previews are apparently saved encoded, which makes any decoded preview content unsearchable with WordPress’ search function (whereas searching for a piece of the encoded string brings up the matching post). If you could implement searchability of the decoded content, that’d be great.

Crashes with ”double free” or ”invalid chunk size” with some mp4 files

20. lokakuuta 2018 klo 18.17
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: Launchpad
Avainsanat: VLC

I’m seeing memory-related crashes when playing videos sliced (with ffmpeg -c copy) from mp4 streams (downloaded with youtube-dl). I’m attaching a sample clip which, granted, is pretty useless for a video, but which produces these crashes with 100% certainty for me; I just edited it down to a reasonable size and non-infringing content.

The errors reported just before core is dumped are (mostly) ”double free or corruption (fasttop)” or (less often) ”malloc_consolidate(): invalid chunk size”.

To be clear, my expectation here is not for the problematic clips to have useful content, or even to play back; just that vlc didn’t crash. (Totem for instance does not seem to crash with the same files.)

I’ll attach logs for both the double free and malloc_consolidate cases (which I’m producing by running LC_ALL=C vlc -vvv out.mp4 in a loop).

No rule to make target ’pre-buid’, needed by ’build-android’

19. lokakuuta 2018 klo 14.29
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: Github
Avainsanat: Mattermost

The build-android target calls the pre-build target as pre-buid, resulting in build failure for the build-android target. This PR fixes the issue.

(PR #2272 did the same for a typo in the build-pr target.)

Text highlight mismatch in view-source when layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is >= 1.2

16. lokakuuta 2018 klo 17.03
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: Launchpad
Avainsanat: Firefox

== The issue ==
Search and text selection highlighting visuals get mismatched with the actual selection in view-source when the value of `layout.css.devPixelsPerPx` is 1.2 or larger.

== Steps to reproduce ==
* Open `about:config`, find `layout.css.devPixelsPerPx` and change the value from default (-1.0) to 1.2.
* Open a view-source view with long lines: `view-source:`
* hit Ctrl+f, search for rss
* using the LMB, try selecting some text, then copy and paste it somewhere

== What happens ==
Screenshot 1: the highlighted text on the page is not ”rss”. The highlight doesn’t even adhere to letter widths.

Screenshot 2: the pasted text is not even close to what you’ve selected to copy.

== What I expect to happen ==
For the search to hightlight an occurence of ”rss”, and for the pasted text to correspond to what I’ve selected from the view-source view.

== Other info ==
* In my testing, a devPixelsPerPx value of 1.1 seems to not trigger this, whereas 1.2 and anything above does.
* In addition to 18.04 (whence the attached info is from) I’ve reproduced this in a VM running up-to-date 18.10.

MPNS typos: notifications called ”notificaitons”

14. lokakuuta 2018 klo 19.00
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: kieli
Avainsanat: Mattermost

The push proxy codebase refers to notifications as ”notificaitons” once in the README and once in a LogInfo() call.

Steps to reproduce

$ git clone
$ cd mattermost-push-proxy/
$ git rev-parse HEAD
nothing to commit, working tree clean
$ git rev-parse HEAD
$ grep -Ri "notificaiton" .

Expected behavior

$ grep -Ri "notificaiton" .

Observed behavior (that appears unintentional)

$ grep -Ri "notificaiton" .
./server/android_notification_server.go:	LogInfo(fmt.Sprintf("Initializing Android notificaiton server for type=%v", me.AndroidPushSettings.Type))
./ more in-depth instructions on setting up push notificaitons with your own build please follow the directions at [](

Possible fixes

Here’s a link to the line in server/android_notification_server.go, link unavailable because Github doesn’t allow per-line linking to Markdown files (that I know of). I think this should be pretty easy to fix and I can provide a pull request.

Needless verbosity is the problem here, IMO

13. lokakuuta 2018 klo 18.17
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: Launchpad

Needless verbosity is the problem here, IMO. I’d expect to receive output from the installer only when the download or install fails for some reason, not when it succeeds.

(Also, to me the culprit here seems to be flashplugin-installer and not update-notifier, as plenty of other packages also report their installation progress, but only flashplugin’s seems to get forwarded to root’s mail even when nothing abnormal occurs.)
