kirklandcjwatson: ah, i usually file this sort of thing against partman00:32
cjwatsonoh, you can do that but TBH it is tricky to figure out which partman component is involved without code inspection00:32
cjwatsonI get it wrong on a regular basis00:32
cjwatson(I'd rather partman were just one big component really, but it wasn't my idea and it's pain to merge them)00:33

cjwatsonsince it was due to a patch I shoved through at short notice for wubi13:48

xivuloncjwatson left you some logs yesterday night, not sure if you noticed, doesn't look to different from previous one14:50

cjwatsonso that could easily be it14:51

xivulongood I will test tonight14:52
xivulonthanks for the patches14:52
xivulonreading https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UDSJaunty/Report/Foundations it seems that grub2 will happen for jaunty, my understanding of what happened at UDS (I missed that track) was quite different15:04
cjwatsonit doesn't say that at all15:05
cjwatsonit's in a section marked "These features involve development or other actions by the community, and thus we cannot guarantee their implementation within this release cycle"15:05

ubottuLaunchpad bug 317068 in ubiquity "ubiquity crashed with InstallStepError in configure_user()" [Undecided,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/31706815:26
superm1xivulon, grub2 was supposed to be added as an option into the installer (and preseedable) so more feedback could be gathered on it this cycle from what I recall in discussions15:27
tjaaltonI'd be willing to test it, and make it available15:29
cjwatsonI think somebody needs to get its update-grub equivalent up to par with our Ubuntu modifications to grub first15:30
cjwatsonand in general check all our modifications over - which will be a fairly long job unfortunately15:30
tjaaltonhmm :)15:30
tjaaltonI'll poke it next week15:30
tjaaltonoh, that's not a part of the installer.. what does d-i need in order to be able to use it?15:31
cjwatsongrub-installer already has basically the relevant code15:33
cjwatsonDebian did that15:33
cjwatsonalthough we've temporarily disabled it until such time as we actually want to use it15:33
tjaaltonand what about the gtk+ frontend?15:33
evandcjwatson: ok; thanks15:34
cjwatsontjaalton: no progress since you last asked15:34
superm1cjwatson, who wrote a majority of the update-grub modifications?  perhaps since they are best versed upon what was changed they should be the one who opts to poke it?  I added a few things in it in hardy at some point to bring it closer, but i'm sure there is still a lot missing15:34
tjaaltoncjwatson: heh ok15:34
cjwatsonsuperm1: err, a cast of thousands^Wseveral15:34
cjwatsonno matter who does it it'll be a matter of painstakingly going through the diff15:34
superm1cjwatson, ah...15:34
tjaaltonheh, debdiff is 12k lines :)15:39
tjaaltonof the package, update-grub alone is ~1000 lines15:43
superm1well update-grub would be the only thing that needed updating though.15:52
CIA-3oem-config: cjwatson * r577 trunk/debian/ (changelog oem-config-udeb.postinst): Suppress user-setup's encrypted home directory question in OEM mode.15:54
tjaaltonI see slangasek on the list of update-grub contributors :)15:59
superm1cjwatson, why suppress that question in OEM mode?  Shouldn't users of preinstalled systems be able to have the same question presented?16:01
xivulonhad a couple of patches in the update-grub related to wubi, but if grub2 supports loop mounting and vfat/ntfs they might not need to be ported16:02
xivulonI can play with that once I can get the installation to complete16:03
cjwatsonsuperm1: the suppression is in the first stage; I haven't yet got round to *adding* the question to the second stage but I agree that that makes sense16:03
cjwatsonsuperm1: i.e. it doesn't make sense for the OEM customisation user to have an encrypted home directory16:03

cjwatsonevand: just looking at the oem-config language screen - would it be worth sorting the languages down then right, rather than right then down? so:21:41
