unknownanimecan someone help me I am trying to figure out if it is possible to load ubuntu onto an older power mac g4 running mac 9.2.206:09
Allaunis there any current problems with persistant mode for usb installer?07:24
Allaunall i get when i enable storing things is the busybox screen07:26
davmor2I've had a cunning plan.  I'm going to run verbose mode and see if anything shows up then no today's ubuntu and kubuntu wubi installs :)10:01
StevenKdavmor2: Would you mind trying UNR too?10:31
davmor2StevenK: Would do but it's fscking well bust again.  I can't access terminal either /me is spitting venom at the screen with a few choice words10:33
StevenKdavmor2: Broke how?10:33
davmor2evand: Locking up completely again at computing the new partitions... and no terminal access this time.  Will try Kubuntu as I get terminal access at least10:34
davmor2StevenK: ^10:34
davmor2Meh talk about role reversals today ubuntu locked and kubunut installed, Talk about random.  Of course kubuntu died on reboot into grub2 :(11:09
davmor2getting the logs now11:10
tjaaltonhuh, dist-upgrade wants to remove grub211:11
tjaaltonand grub-pc11:12
evandI'm not liking these bugs whereby ubiquity is dying somewhere in progress_loop and not surfacing any kind of error message.11:49
davmor2evand, cjwatson: I put the logs from the latest fail including debug on bug 43927911:55
ubottuLaunchpad bug 439279 in wubi "There seems to be some instability with the installer" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/43927911:55
davmor2I did the install in verbose mode so I'm hoping it might throw up more info11:56
evandwhere did that install fail?  It looks fairly successful.11:57
davmor2evand: that is the kubuntu one where it dies on grub on reboot with the message Try (hd0,0): NTFS5: No wubildr -> (hd0,2)11:59
davmor2evand: I couldn't get logs for the random lockup I couldn't get into terminal12:00
davmor2evand: I'll try Ubuntu again now and see what result I get this time12:01
evanddavmor2: what does dir /S C:\ubuntu and dir C:\ show?12:01
evandin Windows, of course12:02
davmor22 ticks in ubuntu live cd12:02

davmor2cjwatson: I'm assuming 09.1 is the one with the change yes?16:50
cjwatsondavmor2: yep16:51
davmor2cjwatson: cool syncing now16:51
davmor2cjwatson: It stopped install at 7% scanning disks... on ubiquity with slides.  however it hasn't locked up so I can get to terminal and can grab logs17:17
cjwatsonno need for logs, same thing as before17:20
cjwatsonI hate this17:20
cjwatsonwell, actually, might as well grab logs just in case, I guess17:20
cjwatsonmight be something different ...17:20
davmor2cjwatson: would the fact that acpid: client connected/disconnected/connected have anything to do with it do you think?17:22
cjwatsonshouldn't think so17:22
davmor2cjwatson: added to bug 439279 as debug091 and syslog09117:31
ubottuError: Could not parse data returned by Launchpad: The read operation timed out (https://launchpad.net/bugs/439279/+text)17:31
cjwatsondavmor2: where's that debug file from? /var/log/debug? normally we'd need /var/log/installer/debug17:32
davmor2ah 2 ticks17:32
davmor2cjwatson: up now17:37
cjwatsondavmor2: (a) can I have /var/log/partman too and (b) can you check 'ps aux | grep parted_server' and find out if there's a parted_server process running?17:38
cjwatsonmaybe ps acx actually17:38
davmor2cjwatson: do you just want to know that 4564 ? S parted_server  or would you like the whole of ps acx?17:45
davmor2partman is up17:46
cjwatsondavmor2: ok, I think I'd like the whole of 'ps auxf'17:47
cjwatsonps auxfww17:47
cjwatsongotta love ps options17:47
davmor2love is maybe a little harsh :)17:48
davmor2posted to bug17:51
rgreeningpoke poke evand17:52
evandyarp, caught up in other issues at the moment17:52
rgreeningnp. just a friendly poke reminder for utf8 fix in usb-creator17:53
davmor2cjwatson: I'll leave the box on but need food bbl if you think of anything else you want17:54
cjwatsonhuh, dump is stuck17:55
cjwatsondavmor2: I'd love ssh access if possible17:56
cjwatsonbut can work around if not17:56
davmor2cjwatson: can't install openssh-server /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process.   Is there away round it then you can have ssh access18:00
cjwatsonhmm, that's tricky18:00
davmor2cjwatson: right off for tea then18:01
cjwatsoncp /var/cache/debconf/{config,config2}.dat; cp /var/cache/debconf/{templates,templates2}.dat18:01
cjwatsonthen edit /etc/debconf.conf and change config.dat to config2.dat and templates.dat to templates2.dat18:02
cjwatsonthen install openssh-server18:02
cjwatsonthen put debconf.conf back the way it was18:02
cjwatsonyou might have to do the same to passwords.dat as well18:02
davmor2cjwatson: got it installed I think but I can't remember how you knock the password off on it18:43
cjwatsonknock the password off?18:46
davmor2cjwatson: so you can login with no password in ssh18:47
cjwatsonoh, 'PermitEmptyPasswords yes' in /etc/ssh/sshd_config18:48
davmor2cjwatson: okay ssh ubuntu@davmor2.dyndns.org should work then18:50
cjwatsonthis is a public channel ...18:50
cjwatsonmight want to set a password and /msg it to me :)18:50
NCommandercjwatson, I tested the first version of partman-uboot (on x86), and it seems to work well. Check actions work, and the filesystem is properly formatted and such18:53
davmor2cjwatson: can't add a user it won't let me hence me not caring18:54
davmor2plus as soon as you finish I'll reset the router :)18:55
cjwatsondavmor2: well, it's not letting me in anyway18:55
cjwatsondavmor2: I meant setting the password of the ubuntu user, though18:56
davmor2ah hadn't thought of that, I was trying to add a user D'oh18:56
NCommandercjwatson, whats the next step I should do to help get this integrated? :-)19:04
cjwatsonNCommander: sorry, I will get back to you but need dinner ...19:15

pmatulisany ideas on how i can troubleshoot karmic not being able to install from a usb device?20:39
davmor2pmatulis: syslog not give you any indications?20:40
pmatulisdavmor2: what i did was change to a virtual console and got a few messages.  is that what you mean?20:41
pmatulisdavmor2: i was installing server edition20:42
cjwatsonpmatulis: it's best to get full logs (/var/log/syslog and probably /var/log/partman) to us in the form of a bug report20:42
pmatuliscjwatson: ok20:43
CIA-33partman-uboot: cjwatson * r3 ubuntu/ (4 files in 4 dirs):20:45
CIA-33partman-uboot: Add explicit subarchitecture checks to a few scripts. This does20:45
CIA-33partman-uboot: duplicate XB-Subarchitecture in debian/control, but it makes life easier20:45
CIA-33partman-uboot: for ubiquity.20:45
cjwatsonNCommander: ^- that was the only problem I could see; shall I sponsor the upload?20:45
NCommandercjwatson, looks good to me. I don't think I'm going to have an opportunity to get it working on dove, we're having a very unusual keyboard issue so I dunno when we'll have alternates working21:19
NCommanderbah, rephrase21:20
NCommanderproperly test it in dove in the alternate installer21:20
NCommandercjwatson, (sorry, I went out for lunch mere minutes before you came back, and it took a bit longer to get back than I had intended)21:20
cjwatsondavmor2: I've gathered all the information I think I can from your system right now; it looks as though partman's synchronisation with parted_server is out of whack, and I'll need to run it from the start to see21:49
cjwatsondavmor2: I'll give it a try on my laptop on Monday, I think21:49
davmor2Right oh then I'm off to bed then night night and good luck monday21:56
CIA-33partman-uboot: cjwatson * r4 ubuntu/debian/rules: remove unused substitution variable handling22:02
