lamontof course, if it's a bug in one of the 50 bazillian udebs that debian-installer brings in to do it's work, then it's not a debian-installer bug necessarily.  OTOH, that does seem to be a popular dumping ground02:00

lamontcanonical ltd (www.canonical.com) pays a bunch of them02:02
sistpotyyes, I've seen that... but what caused that (or what means inactivity there)... btw.: I'm still building at on an ultrasparc 2 (for more than 24 hours now and it still makes progress *g*)02:03

lamontjimlay: I was paid ubuntu development staff from march 2004 through may 200502:15
jimlayOk, so issue #1. The problem I had with the alt-installer was pretty serious - I managed to run lucsFormat on a partition with data on it and lost a bunch of stuff. I assumed that because I was mounting an encrypted volume with the same crypt key the data would be there - I did a lot of figuring out after the fact and now I need to figure out who's responsible for that particular bit of the installer. I don't feel like poosting a bug -02:20
jimlayForum, irc, mailing list from the package-maintainer field in the debian-installer package?02:21
Fujitsujimlay: You should have told it to not overwrite it...02:23
jimlayFujitsu: are you familliar with what I'm talking about?02:25
FujitsuIs there not an option set by default to overwrite the entire volume with random data?02:26
jimlayno I didn't do that.02:26
jimlayI had an encrypted install of 32bit and while installing 64 bit I told it I wanted to mount the encrypted volume - but not format it. When it mapped the device it asked for my crypt key it used it to generate a new keyfile. Luks uses the users crypt key to encrypt the actual key on the disk - that way you can change your password without hhaving to re-encript everything. Well, when I gave it my key to map the device, rather than mappin02:29
jimlayThe data was unrecoverable (I had almost all of it backed up).02:29
jimlayWhere the sticking point is, is that when I went to map the device (the last window before it alll went kuput) I got a warning that said "after this you wont be able to make any more changes to the partition table on your unencrypted volumes" but it didn't give any warning that it was about to run luksFormat which is a potentially dammaging command. Partitioners should function such that when you always get a big nasty message about "a02:32
lamontthat sounds like the parted piece that does the formatting...02:36
lamontif it was me, and I couldn't figure out which package it should be in a reasonable time, I'd dump it on debian-installer and let them migrate it to the right package, since they actually know what udebs do what and such.02:36
jimlayindeed parted looks like it is the package.02:38
lamontthat or the individual filesystem beastie under it02:40
jimlaythe maintainer for parted is ubuntu-devel-discuss so I'm just going to send it to that.02:41
sistpotyjimlay: please rather file a bug on launchpad... makes it much easier for developers to pick that up and sort in instead of a mail to ubuntu-devel-discuss02:43
jimlayok - that's why I asked. thanks.02:44

ogra_cmpcnot iso filesystems16:48
sorenWell, that's what ubuntu-vm-builder does.16:48
sorenHowever, most people just boot one of the usual ubuntu iso's in a vm and does that installation as they're used to.16:48
ogra_cmpcwell, what i want is to create an image from scratch with dd, partiton it, loop mount it and then install grub in there16:49

ogra_cmpcbut thats not the grub cd or floppy image or something ?16:50
