CIA-4ubiquity: cjwatson * r1838 ubiquity/debian/changelog: reorganise changelog09:02
CIA-4ubiquity: cjwatson * r1839 ubiquity/ (debian/changelog ubiquity/components/partman.py):09:03
CIA-4ubiquity: - Offer 'fat16' and 'fat32' filesystem types for new partitions rather09:03
CIA-4ubiquity:  than the non-existent 'fat' (LP: #83211).09:03
CIA-4ubiquity: cjwatson * r1840 ubiquity/ (debian/changelog ubiquity/frontend/gtkui.py): - Fix crash when backing up to automatic partitioning page (LP: #83230).09:07
CIA-4ubiquity: cjwatson * r1841 ubiquity/ (debian/changelog scripts/install.py):09:13
CIA-4ubiquity: * Fix crash due to underqualification of debconf.DebconfError (thanks,09:13
CIA-4ubiquity:  Joel Bryan Juliano; LP: #83008).09:13
cjwatsonI really, really love ubiquity bug reports from apport. They take about a tenth of the time to wade through, partly because I can assume that they already contain all the necessary information without having to think about it.09:27
CIA-4ubiquity: cjwatson * r1842 ubiquity/ (debian/changelog ubiquity/frontend/gtkui.py): - Display current partition sizes in megabytes (part of LP: #83166).09:37
evandIs that ever going to be automated?  I can imagine that creating quite a flood of bug reports.09:37
cjwatsonis which ever going to be automated, sorry?09:37
evandapport.  Right now, at least when I've used it, you have to create the bug report yourself and attach the apport report.  I was curious if the plan was to auto-submit that information to launchpad.09:38
evanderr malone09:38
cjwatsontry a more recent version of apport :-)09:38
evandhah, I thought I was only a few days out of sync, but I guess that's all it takes09:39
cjwatsonas of very recently, pressing the button in apport-gtk submits everything to Launchpad, gets a token back for the submission, and pops up a browser to let you describe the problem; when you submit that it ties it together with the stuff it submitted earlier09:39
cjwatsonso not totally automatic but much closer than before09:40
cjwatsonthat was basically what I was waiting for before switching ubiquity over09:40
cjwatsonI don't mind a flood of bug reports as long as they're good, detailed bug reports :-)09:40
evandNice, but does it mark similar apport reports as duplicates?09:40
evandhah, indeed09:40
cjwatsonthe problem with the earlier flood was that they tended not to be detailed - it will be much harder for people to screw that up now09:41
cjwatsonit tries to use a semi-descriptive title so that Launchpad's attempts to detect duplicates on filing have a better chance of working09:41
evandYeah, I did see a lot of "the installer crashes, here's the pop-up dialog message" in my inbox.09:41
cjwatsonit's not perfect - if several different code paths lead to the same exception on the same line of code, it'll false-positive09:42
cjwatsonbut that's probably fairly rare09:42
cjwatsonwell, apart from stuff like grub-installer failing09:42
cjwatsonbut to be honest I have so many reports of that now that I don't mind losing a few ;-)09:42
cjwatsonI thought the bit in bug 83166 about swap was bogus until I went and read the code - apparently partman *can* choose not to format swap09:43
cjwatsonwill need to look at that this week09:43

kroI'm having problems preseeding with the fiesty installer.  the old preseed I used to use to do automatic partitioning of the hard drive without asking isn't working.  tracing through the choices, it seems like the selection is specific to the machine.  I need something more generic that I can apply to machines with different hard drives.  Did something change?10:51
cjwatsonkro: you mean partman-auto/disk and /dev/hda / /dev/sda rather than /dev/discs/disc0/disc?11:03
cjwatsonthat was a change in edgy11:03
cjwatsonkro: in feisty, preseed partman-auto/method to regular and just leave partman-auto/disk unset and it'll automatically use the first disk11:03
cjwatsonkro: oh, preseeding partman-auto/method to regular is a new requirement in feisty anyway, so you may just have been being bitten by that. Regardless, leaving partman-auto/disk unpreseeded is probably what you want now if you just have one disk11:04
cjwatsonthe partman-auto/method stuff is part of a batch of changes that will eventually produce better preseeding of stuff like LVM and RAI11:07

krocjwatson: thanks. I hadn't touched d-i since dapper.11:12
