CarlFK1I am remastering the live cd (removed OO, added some packages)  How do I put the default user in the video group?06:31
juliuxis it possible to define a syslog host for a netinstall installation?08:57
cjwatsonjuliux: boot with log_host=blah log_port=blah09:24
cjwatson(you can leave out log_port if it's the standard syslog port)09:25
cjwatsonCarlFK1: change the default value of passwd/user-default-groups in debconf09:25
juliuxcjwatson: thanks09:31
juliuxcjwatson: one more question it is possible to define a mirror also via the append line?13:09
cjwatsonjuliux: sure. replacing the default one, or adding an additional one?13:14
juliuxcjwatson: replacing13:24
cjwatsonthen you just follow the normal procedure for preseeding something on the command line ...13:25
cjwatsonto preseed it in a file, you'd use:13:25
cjwatsond-i mirror/country string manual13:25
cjwatsond-i mirror/http/hostname string host.name.example13:25
cjwatsond-i mirror/http/directory string /ubuntu13:25
cjwatsontherefore, to preseed it on the command line, use mirror/country=manual mirror/http/hostname=host.name.example mirror/http/directory=/ubuntu13:26
juliuxcjwatson: if i find time to go to one of the next uds you got a lot of beer from me;)13:30
cjwatsonI'll be at debconf, if that counts :)13:31
juliuxi am not going to debconf13:35
CIA-2user-setup: cjwatson * r187 ubuntu/ (3 files in 2 dirs):13:44
CIA-2user-setup: Error out more gracefully, although with a clear red-screen error, if13:44
CIA-2user-setup: /dev/shm/.ecryptfs-$USER doesn't exist when trying to set up home13:44
CIA-2user-setup: directory encryption (LP: #395082).13:44

juliuxcjwatson: sorry for asking again, if i try to install an raid i got an message where the installer warns me that the kernel was unable to re-read the partion table, how can i accept this messages? or how can i subpress this messages?14:35
cjwatsondon't know just from that, would need to see logs. probably a bug14:36
juliuxyou just have to press enter end then every thing is fine;)14:38
juliuxi think is only showing up if there where alreay a raid installed14:38
CarlFK1cjwatson: um.. im not sure how to "change the default value of passwd/user-default-groups in debconf"  - I found http://live.debian.net/manual/html/live-user.html that says:15:33
CarlFK1"...to add the live user to the fuse group, add the following to a file in the config/chroot_local-preseed directory:        debconf passwd/user-default-groups string audio cdrom dialout floppy video plugdev netdev powerdev fuse "15:33
CarlFK1but I don't find that dir15:33
CarlFK1(first time I have looked at the live cd internals )15:35
cjwatsonDebian's diverged a fair bit from our live CD; don't use their documentation15:43
CarlFK1and lots of FIXMEs in key places15:44
CarlFK1I am using  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization15:44
cjwatsonand that documentation is just wrong anyway, wrong owner15:44
cjwatsonyou need to write a preseed file that says 'd-i passwd/user-default-groups string adm cdrom dialout lpadmin plugdev sambashare video' (at least that's what it'd be in karmic)15:45
cjwatsonput it somewhere in the CD root15:45
cjwatsonand then put preseed/file=/cdrom/path/to/your/file on the kernel command line15:45
cjwatsonor actually just file= will be fine15:45
CarlFK1nother Q: how do I disable cpu feq scaling (also live cd)15:46
cjwatsonsorry, no idea; not really an installer thing15:46
CIA-2debian-installer-utils: cjwatson * r679 ubuntu/ (70 files in 3 dirs): merge from Debian 1.7016:10
shtylmanthis isn't good ... I just updated to the new kernel and it doesn't boot for me :)17:18
lamalexevand: Do you think compute_size_layout is the function that does this?17:43
evandshtylman: welcome to karmic :)17:45
evandlamalex: what, set the default size for the partition slider?  No, I think it's done in add_segment_rgb.17:45
evandfrom glancing at the code anyway17:45
shtylmanevand: :)17:46
shtylmanevand: you see any of the work we have been doing on the installer?17:46
shtylmanand all of that is basically accomplished with just a stylesheet17:47
evandAh, cool.  Looking at the screenshots it appears as though the desktop is absent, or is this in only-ubiquity mode?17:48
shtylmanevand: its fullscreen17:48
shtylmancovers everything else while you move through the steps and then goes away...you can also minimize it17:49
evandas in always, regardless of whether you select "try or install Kubuntu" or "install Ubuntu"?17:49
shtylmanthats the idea currently... the screenshots are missing a minimize icon we hope to add17:49
shtylmanto make it easier to minimize the install process17:50
CIA-2casper: cjwatson * r649 trunk/ (debian/changelog scripts/casper-bottom/15autologin): scripts/casper-bottom/15autologin: Minor consistency fixes.17:50
shtylmanthe desktop is still there... but we wanted to make the user focus on the install steps for those few moments17:50
CIA-2user-setup: cjwatson * r190 ubuntu/ (debian/changelog user-setup-apply): Update autologin code to work with new gdm (thanks, Martin Pitt).17:51
CIA-2oem-config: cjwatson * r676 trunk/ (debian/changelog oem-config): Update autologin-disabling code to work with new gdm.17:54

evandhrm, not sure how comfortable I am with that.  We created the "install {K,U}buntu" option in part to have a full screen application when it's desired, but if its full screen on the live CD desktop, I'm worried that users wont realize they can treat it like a regular application.  Not my call to make though, that's up to you guys in Kubuntu.  However, I would suggest that if you make it full screen, you don't waste any screen real estate and make18:00
evandanyway, I need to run18:00
evandcheers, have a good weekend18:00
shtylmank...will consider... peace18:00
lamalexevand: are you around? I've been searching through this code for 2 hours and still haven't been able to find where it picks the size18:59
lamalexoh snap19:06
lamalexmaybe just found it19:06
evandlamalex: I really have to run but the partman-auto shell code lives somewhere in /lib/partman (its probably easier to look at the partman-auto source package), that gets called by partman.py (/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/components), which then feeds the minimum size for the resized partition, the maximum size, and the size of the partition itself to the frontend (/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/frontend/gtk_ui.py), which creates a SegmentedBarSlider w19:27
evandthis is in add_segment_rgb19:28
evandroughly line 60019:28
evandif self.resize != -1 and len ...19:28
evandreally gotta run19:28
lamalexyah, found it finally19:30
