TheMusoevand: If we have to go all root for only-ubiquity, its trivial to slip some code into the casper script to check the cmdline, and if only-ubiquity exists, save the setings as root. I was actually playing with such an idea late last week.06:53
evandTheMuso: good to know, thanks06:54
superm1evand, sorry to be pushy, but would you mind giving the dvd livefs and ISO another prod before you head off to bed?06:59

superm1looking at my list, that was the last one that i wasn't sure on08:12
evandnot yet, I've been looking at it, but I haven't been able to track down the cause yet08:14

CIA-1partman-basicfilesystems: cjwatson * r560 ubuntu/debian/changelog: expand changelog08:17
GreatMandrillhi. I have noticed that after finishing the ubuntu-server installation the apt cd source is /etc/apt/sources.list is disabled. There is a easy way to make this entry active after the installation?. Some preseed command perhaps?. Thanks09:12
CIA-1partman-basicfilesystems: cjwatson * r561 ubuntu/debian/changelog: releasing version 56ubuntu409:16
cjwatsonGreatMandrill: not really - in most cases it isn't appropriate because apt will end up asking you for the CD any time you try to do package management operations09:17
GreatMandrillok, thx09:19
cjwatsonthere isn't actually a way to change that with preseeding (because the apt-setup code in question runs after preseed/late_command); you could file a bug on Ubuntu apt-setup if you decide you still want that09:24

cjwatsonxivulon,Silicium: there's a reason we don't include "Ubuntu" in Ubiquity's text :-)13:02
Siliciumhey cjwatson haha youre help is everywhere, :D13:02
cjwatsonSilicium: where do you see the text "Welcome to Ubuntu installer"?13:02
Siliciumyou greate13:02
Siliciumcjwatson: i mean the welcome text in the ncurses installer13:03
cjwatsonerr, it doesn't have any as far as I know13:03
cjwatsonthe first screen is "Choose language"13:03
cjwatsondo you mean F1 at the CD boot menu, which says "Welcome to Ubuntu!" in its title bar?13:04
Siliciumnope this i have edited13:04
Siliciummom i see which dialog is it13:04
Siliciumerm, cjwatson you got payed for you support work?13:05
cjwatsonno, my job is Ubuntu Platform Team Manager13:05
Siliciumyou everytime here in the chan an help for stupid questions :D13:05
Siliciumcjwatson: ok cool :D13:05
Siliciumcanional inc?13:05
Siliciumor in the "free" community?13:05
cjwatsonbut I happen to care about the Ubuntu installer quite a bit, and that was my main job before I moved to management13:05
cjwatsonCanonical UK Ltd.13:05
Siliciumok cool :)13:05
cjwatson(if you want the company on my paycheques ...)13:06
cjwatsonif you press "Go back" from the alternate installer's first screen, the title bar is "Ubuntu installer main menu"13:06
cjwatsonthat's hardcoded in the main-menu package, somewhat unfortunately13:06
cjwatsonthe reason it isn't just ("%s installer main menu" % distribution) is that Ubuntu sometimes gets transliterated13:06
Siliciumthis is what i think13:07
cjwatsonso, for instance, in Macedonian it's "Убунту"13:07
Siliciumso the language files are also hardcoded?13:07
cjwatsonwe've generally tried to get rid of explicit references to Ubuntu; the ones that remain is where it's hard to justify removing the distribution name13:07
cjwatsonafraid so13:07
cjwatsonI consider everything like that to be a bug, FWIW13:07
Siliciumand in which binary?13:07
cjwatsonmain-menu source, builds main-menu.udeb; it ends up in /var/lib/dpkg/info/main-menu.templates in the initrd which is loaded into /var/lib/cdebconf/templates.dat as the installer boots13:08
Siliciumok thanks13:08
cjwatson(and /var/lib/dpkg/info/main-menu.templates is then removed to save memory)13:08
xivuloncjwatson, did you happen to find out anything new on #206113 ?13:08
cjwatsonxivulon: I'm afraid not, it's a kernel problem isn't it?13:08
xivulonah no that one I found out13:09
xivulonif you mean the buffer I/O13:09
cjwatsonoh, right, sorry, mixed up13:09
xivulon206113 is about swap creation13:09
cjwatsonno, I haven't looked further at it. The root error is "mkswap: unable to write signature page", which is literally write() failing13:10
xivulonI am not too concerned since that appears to be the only report I have seen on that, but still13:10
cjwatsonhow about I make it at least give the errno13:10
cjwatsonthen you might be able to have a better guess at the cause13:10
xivulononly thing I can think of is if the swapfile is not contiguous13:10
xivulonI remember mkswap does not like that, but not sure what the errorno would be in such case13:11
cjwatsonwell, it's not what mkswap likes really, it's what the kernel says to write()13:11
cjwatson    if (write(DEV, (char *) signature_page + offset, pagesize - offset)13:11
cjwatson        != pagesize - offset)13:11
cjwatson        bb_error_msg_and_die("unable to write signature page");13:11
cjwatsonnow, it could be a short write, but that generally ought not to happen when writing less than a page13:12
cjwatsonbut it's possible13:12
cjwatson(if you don't know: write() is not guaranteed to write everything in one go)13:12
cjwatsonI'll try installing the obvious fix for that and see if it helps13:12
xivulonthe kernel issue by the way was due to the sysctl parameters in lupin-support13:14
cjwatsonhooray for the existence of bb_full_write; writing out that code over and over in N different codebases gets boring13:14
xivulonfor some reason the new kernel does not like them anymore, have asked cking to have a look13:14
xivulonwe also have to decide whether to keep mounthost in13:15
xivulonbasically now it does nothing, since /host is mounted rw in initramfs13:15
xivulonit might become useful if ntfs/loop become remountable and initramfs is changed accordingly (within hardy LTS)13:15
xivulonnot sure if that is likely to happen... otherwise we can just remove mounthost13:16
cjwatsonoh, err, busybox can't be relevant!13:18
cjwatsonthis is in ubiquity so it's util-linux' mkswap, duh13:18
cjwatsonxivulon: spawned off a util-linux task and asked LaMont to have a look13:23
xivulonthanks a lot13:23
xivulonany view on mounthost ^?13:24
xivulonbasically that translates to: any chance for ntfs-3g to become remountable with a package update in 8.04 cycle?13:24
xivulonI'd guess that would be a new feature, hence not13:24
cjwatsonsounds unlikely, though feel free to petition the release manager13:27
xivulonwell I'd guess if that was required we could also update lupin-support package correct?13:28
xivulonI'd remove mounthost for the time being13:29
Siliciumcjwatson: do you have any idea why the package ipbx-frontend does not configure?13:42
Siliciumi cant find any problem13:43
Siliciumand when i boot the system and type apt-get install ipbx then works fine13:43
cjwatsonSilicium: looks like it's sensitive to $TERM and can't deal with the installer's terminal13:44
Siliciumcan i fix that?13:45
cjwatsonipbx-frontend doesn't appear to be in Ubuntu, so I'm unable to help further13:45
Siliciumi know, is my package :D13:46
Siliciumso is it a package problem13:46
cjwatsonoh, it might not be that actually, I see an error to do with postgresql in there13:46
cjwatsonwhich means that it's probably bug 20410813:47

Siliciumi can install if i do manually13:48
Siliciumthen it works13:48
cjwatsonright, it'll work after you reboot13:49
cjwatsonthe problem is that /target/dev/null when the installer is running is not writable by the postgresql user13:49
cjwatsoner, the postgres user13:49
Siliciumoh ok13:49
Siliciumthats the bug13:49
cjwatsonbut when you reboot it will work fine because the normal udev rules will come into effect13:49
Siliciumcan i reload the udev rules?13:49
Siliciumbefore install ibpx13:50
Siliciumso we should release the beta thoday :D13:50
cjwatsonthe bug will be fixed by relese13:50
cjwatsonthis is the sort of thing you get when working on a beta; it is practically guaranteed to contain bugs :-)13:50
Siliciumok fine13:53
cjwatsonin order to work around it you'd need to insert the output of 'grep null /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules' into some file in /etc/udev/rules.d/ in your initrd13:53

evandno problem16:02
xivulonfor lupin not sure what to use for the parameters16:03
xivulonthe tradeoff is that if we are too loose people may have issues with hard reboots and blame ubuntu for fs corruption16:04
xivulonif we are to strict we have I/O errors...16:04
xivulonI mean lupin-sysctl16:04
xivulonas mentioned I already asked cking16:05
xivulonin the meantime we might have bdmurray and myself to do some empirical tests by gradually rising dirty_limit & co16:06
xivulonarguably not very scientific...16:06
evandindeed, I read the scrollback in -kernel.  I'd wait to see what he says.  Hopefully he can fix the problem or find a workaround.16:06
evanddid you catch the zdnet article yet?  Very nice, though I emailed the author about the last paragraph, noting that Wubi can be run stand-alone and thus removes the need for a CD, we just don't have it up on the website yet.16:08
xivulonI read the one in ars-techica some time ago'16:09
* xivulon reads zdnet16:09
xivulonah had seen that too16:09

xivulonah not sure what you want to do with segfaults18:16
xivulonI'd suggest using nsis 2.36 until someone complains...18:16
evandxivulon: we're going to need to come up with a better argument for the release team than "we hope nsis 2.36 fixes the segfaults, but we have no evidence that it does" if we're going to use 2.36.18:22
evandI tried to reproduce my crashes using the older nsis with debugging build, but I could not18:22

xivulonEven binary search is impossible18:23
xivulonWe know that 2.34 segfaults, and 2.36 seems to fix it, having people use 2.36 extensively might be the best we can do18:24

mario_limonciellalso for this latest dvd it would appear that less language packages are pre-installed.  was there a particular reason for that?20:56
xivuloncjwatson, depends how he runs it, if he is using a physical CD will use that (will extract the CD content as iso first), if he runs wubi standalone it will download20:57
cjwatson"PS: It crashes when it is installing Ubuntu from the CD."20:59
xivulonre commenting I meant I never found out how to edit documents in busybox, and the few times I needed to always ended up using sed (don't laugh), which is inconvenient for several lines, was wondering if you had any tip20:59
cjwatsonsaith the bug report20:59
cjwatsonsed is what you need to use in the initramfs20:59
cjwatsonit's not convenient - correct :-)20:59
cjwatsonmario_limonciell: DVD ought to have all available language support21:00
* xivulon starts pertition for editor in busibox!21:00
cjwatsonthere is an editor in busybox, it's just not in the initramfs21:00
cjwatsonI might add it in intrepid21:00
mario_limonciellcjwatson, all the languages were "available", just the amount pre-installed in the livefs has changed21:00
mario_limonciellso i wasn't sure if that was intended21:00
cjwatsonmario_limonciell: no, I mean they're all supposed to be preinstalled in the livfs21:00
mario_limonciellhm well i preseeded all the language characters i could see, and a very large amount of lang packages got installed at the end still21:01
mario_limonciellthe livefs is awfully small to have all lang packs this time around too anyhow (835 mb)21:01
xivulonwhen it is installing Ubuntu from the CD.21:02
cjwatson= Language packs; in theory we're putting them all on the DVD =21:03

cjwatsonsays the current live-dvd build21:03
cjwatsonbring it up on #ubuntu-devel?21:03
xivuloncjwatson the way I read is that "it crashes when it is installing Ubuntu from the CD"= "when in ubiquity"21:03
xivuloneven if he was using wubi with cd that would be ejected21:03
mario_limonciellcjwatson, let me get a log from a full install of everythign that gets installed (my last install failed due to the noninteractive), so i'll do one with automatic-ubiquity and then bring it up so i have some hard evidence21:03
cjwatsonxivulon: it sure sounds like a physical CD though21:04
cjwatsonmario_limonciell: the .manifest file lists all the packages installed in the livefs, so you can check that way21:05
xivulonhmm not sure he says it was an iso issue, I will ask to avoid doubts21:05
mario_limonciellcjwatson, well that definitely shows it then.  the manifests are significantly different21:06
xivuloncjwatson the only reason wubi would redownload when there is a CD is if the checksum of squashfs fails21:14
xivulonthat is only tested when there is no internet connection (since with internet connection I assume I can get the md5 of the full iso).21:15
xivulonThere used to be a bug whereby that check would always fail, but then again he would then not have been able to download the ISO...21:15
cjwatsonevand: do you have anything more for the next upload? We should get that done ASAP if it's breaking wubi21:58
evandcjwatson: no, I'll do another upload later tonight for the rest of my work, but I agree, I'll do an upload now.22:08

cjwatsonright, certainly23:39
blahblahxthat i want the button to link to23:39
cjwatsonthe URL is in .disk/release_notes_url on the CD23:39
blahblahxwhere on the cd?23:39
cjwatsonlet me clarify. /.disk/release_notes_url on the CD23:39
blahblahxon the final iso?23:40
blahblahxhuh let me see23:40
cjwatson${LANG} in the URL is replaced by the ISO-639-1 code for the language, if you want to internationalise your release notes23:40

blahblahxwhat if for some reason i dont have a .disk folder on my final iso?23:41
blahblahxwhy would that be?23:41
blahblahxcould i just create it if its not there?23:42
cjwatsonblahblahx: perhaps because you used cp with a * wildcard to copy things over23:42
blahblahxcjwatson: actually i used reconstructor.23:43
blahblahxcjwatson: you know about it?23:43
cjwatson* does not match hidden files or directories (those whose names begin with .)23:43
cjwatsonI know about reconstructor, but I didn't know it was so badly broken as to not include .disk23:43
blahblahxits not23:43
blahblahxi have seen other isos made with it that have .disk23:43
cjwatson.disk is required, so I suggest you grab an Ubuntu image, copy across its .disk, and tweak to suit you23:43
blahblahxam i supposed to have a .disc_id file in the main folder of my iso?23:44
cjwatsonbeware of the .disk/casper-uuid-generic file; you need to make that match conf/uuid.conf in the casper initrd, if there is one23:45
cjwatsonI've never heard of .disc_id. The installer doesn't use it.23:45
blahblahxahh thank you23:45
blahblahxcjwatson: because i had copied a .disk folder to my iso from a similar distro, but there were ubiquity errors. could that be from the uuid.conf?23:46
cjwatsonif you got the casper-uuid-generic file wrong, then it wouldn't get as far as ubiquity; it would simply fail to boot23:46
blahblahxoh then nevermind its not that23:46
blahblahxoh wait disc_id is a reconstructor info file, nothing important23:47
cjwatsonif there is a /conf/uuid.conf file in /casper/initrd.gz, then the CD is required to have a file matching /.disk/casper-uuid* with the same unique ID in it. (You can boot with the ignore_uuid parameter to skip this check.) This is so that you can put a rescue image on the hard disk that looks mostly like a live CD, without casper accidentally booting from it.23:48
cjwatsonBut if you aren't running into this, you don't need to care.23:48
blahblahxwell the disk boots fine, but then when i open ubiquity, i get a language error like "language exited with error 127"23:48
blahblahxand it tells me to check my syslog23:48
blahblahxwhich i checked, but couldn't quite decode the part about ubiquity23:49
cjwatsonI've heard a few reports of this, but either I haven't diagnosed it or I have forgotten what the result was. Could you please put the full syslog somewhere that I can see it?23:49
blahblahxshall i pastebin it?23:49
cjwatsonyes, please23:49
blahblahxok this pastebin that i post will be from the cd where i copied the .disk folder from another similar distro23:49
blahblahxgimmie a sec23:49
blahblahxshould i post the entire syslog or just the parts with ubiquity in them?23:50
cjwatsonthe entire syslog, please23:51
cjwatsonextra information is rarely harmful, and missing information can be painful to get past23:51
Siliciumwww.opensnom.org - the Open Snom Implementation23:52
blahblahxoh wait thats not a correct link23:53
blahblahxcjwatson: hold on ill post the real link23:53
cjwatsonhttp://people.ubuntu.com/~cjwatson/ubuntu-paste may be useful; you can feed it data to pastebin on stdin23:53
cjwatson(not my work originally, though I forget where it came from)23:53
cjwatsonSilicium: why's that relevant here?23:54
cjwatson(says it's based on Debian, not Ubuntu?)23:54
Siliciummaybe :)23:54
blahblahxhere its on pastebin.com and i put the name as blahblahx cjwatson23:54
