_rubenas for preseeding disk layout, http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/svn/debian-installer/installer/doc/devel/partman-auto-recipe.txt seems to be one of the very few reference docs .. any other tips/hints?11:48
cjwatsonyou should always use the Ubuntu documentation, not the Debian documentation11:49
cjwatsonat times they differ11:49
_rubengoogle wouldnt lead me to an ubuntu version :p11:50
cjwatsonI think that's the only recipe documentation there is, really11:51
_rubenok, thanks, then i'll give it a try using that doc11:54
_rubenis there a way to "test run" such a recipe? initiating a complete os reinstall to test a recipe sounds a bit overkill to me12:07
cjwatsonnot really, sorry12:14
_rubentoo bad12:18
Haeginhi, where can I find the relevant netboot files for ubuntu eee or easy peasy?12:38
cjwatsonwe don't yet support the Eee as part of the core Ubuntu project, so I'm afraid this channel is unable to help12:43
cjwatsonthough my wife has been on my case to get Ubuntu working on her Eee, so it may happen at some point :)12:44
cjwatsonI assume that you have read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EeePC/Installation ?12:44
cjwatsonof course, it may be that the standard netboot files work on Eee; I simply don't know12:44
cjwatsonthose are here: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/intrepid/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/12:44
Haegincjwatson: thanks, I'll take a look. It seems ridiculous that the ubuntu eee project doesn't support netbooting when the device has no optical drive but oh well, some people are fools...12:50
cjwatsonwell, depending on the extent of their modifications, it may be that they can just rely on the standard files12:50
cjwatsonas I say - I just don't know12:51
cjwatsonI thought they generally advised USB booting12:51
HaeginYeah, I don't have a spare USB device available that works with it and I have a netboot server set up on a nice fast connection.12:53
DogWaterjeez my mirror has been building for 12hr on a gig-e connection13:48
DogWatercjwatson: d'oh it says that -i error at the beginning of the install but i dont see it until the end when it drops back to the shell13:50
DogWateri just noticed it13:50
DogWatercjwatson: it says it immediately after 'configuring the network with dhcp'13:56
DogWaterthat must be when it downloads and parses the kickstart file, np?13:56
DogWatererr no??13:57
cjwatsonthat's a lot more plausible than it happening at preseed/late_command time, yes14:01
cjwatsoncan I get the syslog?14:01
davmor2cjwatson: Haegin: easypeasy might be a better option for you it used to be the eeebuntu project if memory serves14:04
_rubenwoah .. my first attempt at preseeding disk layout actually worked .. not too keen on the chosen names for the vgs/lvs, but i guess i could live with that :)14:15
DogWatersure, i'll give you the syslog what do you want me to do with it?14:27
cjwatsonput it wherever's convenient, as long as it isn't pasted into IRC14:28
cjwatsonattach to a bug report, paste.ubuntu.com, whatever14:28
DogWatercjwatson: you mentioned that you ran a ubuntu mirror locally, do you know if you can use any mirror for that or do you have to use the ubuntu archive?14:30
cjwatsonarchive.ubuntu.com is a mirror itself, technically :-)14:31
cjwatsonany mirror will do14:31
DogWateryeah cause i notice that one is particularly slow14:31
cjwatsonobviously it's rather loaded14:31
DogWateryes, loaded is what i meant to say14:31
DogWateryikes it started over at the beginning ;-)14:34
DogWateri figured it would resume14:34
cjwatsonit downloads the indices from scratch each time, but will reuse any .deb files that are there14:35
DogWatercjwatson: can I send this to you somewhere private? i tried to sanitize it best i could but its a long file14:56
cjwatsonI'd really prefer that you didn't sanitise it, unless there are any passwords in it14:56
DogWatertheres IPs etc in it14:56
cjwatsonmail it to cjwatson@ubuntu.com then14:57
cjwatsonbut please don't try to filter it down to what you think I'll be interested in14:57
cjwatsonremoving genuinely private data is fine14:57
DogWateri didnt cut any lines out14:57
DogWateror anything14:57
cjwatsonsome people grep for interesting stuff and only send me the results, which is very frustrating :)14:58
DogWatershould be in your inbox14:59
davmor2evand: should m-a pop up now in jaunty on a whole drive install?15:52
DogWaterwell aside from not being able to use sed in the installer im pretty pleased with the new version (fixed) cjwatson, did you ever get a chance to release a new initrd for amd64?16:12
cjwatsonno, planning to do that by way of intrepid-proposed16:25
cjwatsonJan 23 09:34:38 in-target: Unexpected error; command not executed: 'apt-get update'16:25
cjwatsonI guess this must be the problem - let me see16:25
cjwatsonah yes, I can reproduce it16:30
DogWatercjwatson so any clue on that one?17:30
cjwatsonDogWater: I was on the phone, give me a minute ...17:54
cjwatsonI'm hitting it with various debugging approaches now17:56
DogWateroh, i dont mean to rush you or anything i was just curious you killed that one yesterday so fast17:57
cjwatsonyeah, that one I had fixed already though and just had to remember about it :)17:59
DogWateroh. lol nice17:59
cjwatsonthis one almost looks like a new busybox bug17:59
DogWateri do that sometimes when i write php i create a function like 10 times and do it 10 different ways then eventually i realize i already wrote that function18:00
DogWateri think i got banned from the ubuntu archive i was trying to mirror =/18:00
cjwatsonI think I can give you a workaround18:01
cjwatsonpreseed preseed/late_command string sed 's/http:\/\/\/Ubuntu8.10\//http:\/\/ubuntu.osuosl.org\/ubuntu/g' /target/etc/apt/sources.list > /target/etc/apt/sources.list.new && mv /target/etc/apt/sources.list.new /target/etc/apt/sources.list && in-target apt-get update18:03
cjwatsonalternatively, you can put the whole sed / apt-get update thing in a script that you download from a server and then run18:05
cjwatsonthe problem isn't with running sed, it's with parsing of the -i18:05
cjwatsonit's being parsed entirely incorrectly as a getopt option, which it isn't18:06
cjwatsonthere is something very weird going on, though, as I can reproduce this with getopt(1) on a normal system too18:10
cjwatson$ getopt -o '' -l foo: -- -i18:10
cjwatsongetopt: invalid option -- 'i'18:10
cjwatson --18:10
cjwatson(the -- in the first line is supposed to terminate options regardless of everything else)18:10
cjwatsonoh, maybe I'm confused18:11
cjwatsonDogWater: anyway, that should be a functional workaround and I have to go out now, but I'll continue working this out and get it fixed for jaunty18:12
