davmor2xivulon: hit an issue with wubi kne last night I'm assuming it is the max_iso_size but if I had any persistence to the usb stick, install inside windows disappeared from the wubi menu08:32
xivulondavmor2, yes the algorithm is wrong08:38
davmor2xivulon: cool bug 461566 if you want to comment08:39
ubottuLaunchpad bug 461566 in wubi "kne image plus persistence means that the iso size is too large I believe" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/46156608:39
xivulonmorning evand08:47
xivulonhave a quick look at 46156608:48
davmor2evand: more noticeable with kne it's slightly larger than unr08:49
evandI think a DVD being offline is still a likely scenario.08:49
xivulonwe could have: min_iso_size < used < DVD_size08:51
xivulona quick and dirty patch, but should give us a bit of headroom08:52
davmor2evand: as a temporary work round for unr and kne I'm thinking just tell people if they want to install using wubi don't enable persistence08:52
davmor2works fine then08:52
evanddavmor2: I think telling them to use the force option would be better08:52
xivulonis the release on schedule?08:55
evandxivulon: I suspect most users will max out the persistence size08:56
evandso I don't see letting it through so long as it's less than the size of the DVD being of much help08:56
evandI think our best bet is to release note this, tell users to use --force if on a usb disk, and fix it properly in lucid08:56
evandxivulon: yes, it appears to be on schedule08:57
xivulonI agree this is not critical, and it will not justify a respin08:57
xivuloneven if we had a proper patch, which we don't at the moment08:57
xivulonby the way it is "--force-wubi"08:59
evandbug updated09:01
davmor2evand, xivulon: Yay on a plus side with persistence removed it installs fine :)09:04

evandI wouldn't install all the packages like that14:40

flagg0204has anyone successfully installed ubuntu to an iscsi target, and have it work on reboot?16:49
cjwatsonflagg0204: I made changes for that yesterday16:50
cjwatsonvery late yesterday, in fact16:50
cjwatsonafter that, it actually worked for me; before that, it was broken16:51
flagg0204odd.  so i built an iscsi target, used debootstrap to populate it.   using gpxe to boot.  currently it hangs after the grub menu because it cant find vmlinuz or initrd16:52
flagg0204trying to figure out how to update grub or initrd to support iscsi16:52
cjwatsonif it can't find the vmlinuz, updating the initrd won't help16:53
cjwatsonAFAIK that is meant to be the BIOS' problem16:53
flagg0204yeah im grasping at straws i admit.  so its probably a grub change that has to happen?16:53
cjwatsonI was using a homebrewed setup, copying the kernel and initrd out and passing them by hand to kvm16:53
cjwatsonI can ask a colleague who was testing with gpxe16:54
flagg0204only if its not too much trouble16:54
cjwatsonhe said it got further than that for him, though16:54
cjwatson(before my fixes)16:54
flagg0204yeah, mine pulls down the grub config,  the menu is presented.  when you select the default menu item, then it hangs16:54
cjwatsonwhich sort of suggests to me that it's a BIOS-level problem - for booting, the bootloader is not meant to have to understand iSCSI16:54
flagg0204well technically it dumps me to busybox16:54
cjwatsonoh, then you didn't describe the problem accurately :)16:55
flagg0204my mistake16:55
flagg0204yes dumps me to busybox16:55
cjwatsonit could find both the vmlinuz and initrd, if you get a busybox prompt16:55
cjwatsonwhat it couldn't find was the root filesystem16:55
cjwatsoncan I recommend that you use the actual installer to do this, rather than debootstrap?16:55
cjwatsonthere are quite a few bits and pieces you need to get into the initramfs16:55
cjwatsonand the installer (as of *today*'s server CD) automates it for you16:56
flagg0204for the server iso?16:56
flagg0204or desktop16:56
cjwatsonbut you can always install from the server ISO, and then install ubuntu-desktop on top :)16:56
flagg0204ah.  is that in the usual releases.ubuntu.com or whatever16:57
flagg0204ah ok16:57
flagg0204ill give that a try again.  thanks for the help16:57
flagg0204last time i attempted the install on iscsi, it didn't show any of the luns that i had exposed from my netapp16:58
flagg0204it saw the netapp, just none of the luns16:58
flagg0204amd you couldn't set the initiator name16:58
cjwatsonthat I don't know about, I've only been able to test my code against a software target17:00
cjwatsonflagg0204: educate me, if you would - what's setting the initiator name needed for?17:02
cjwatsonI can't change it now for 9.10, but can consider improvements for 10.0417:02
cjwatsonat the moment, we use iscsi-iname to generate a unique node name starting with iqn.1993-08.org.debian:0117:03
NivexSome SAN devices use the initiator name for ACLs17:06
NivexNetApp in particular17:06
NivexI think it would be a good idea to have a blueprint for improving iSCSI support going into Lucid17:06
cjwatsonwell, at least file bug reports17:07
cjwatsonwe can consider whether it needs the heavyweight blueprint process based on that17:07
Nivexyeah, once Karmic's out the door I'll file a couple wishlists17:07
Nivexthe other thing to add would be prompts for CHAP credentials17:08
flagg0204cjwatson well filers have igroups.  and the way the filer knows what lun to map an initiator to is by the initiators name17:12
flagg0204nivex - chap is a good idea as well17:12
cjwatsonok, those should both be doable17:13
flagg0204iscsitarget is much more forgiving of initiator names, as you can simply allow all initiators to connect to any lun.  not sure if you can do that with netapp17:14
flagg0204cjwatson - when you booted iscsi root volume, are you just using pxe/dhcp?17:43
cjwatsonI pointed kvm at the kernel and initrd directly :)17:47
cjwatsonbut I know that mathias was using gPXE and got out of the initramfs17:47
flagg0204doh.   yeah forgot about the kvm part :)17:47
cjwatson17:26 <mathiaz> cjwatson: root-on-iscsi from gPXE works correclty here!17:47
=== robbiew is now known as robbiew-afk
flagg0204cjwatson - just another confirmation.   gpxe / iscsi root to a linux iscsitarget does work.  although there are some stranges errors probably related to networking setup in initrd18:26
flagg0204but it did work18:26
lzoulekI was here earlier today and you guys helped me out a lot installing an application. Now I am trying to install a plugin and am not able to get it done correctly. Can anyone help me out19:55
