persiaSo, regarding SRU validation: There's a reporter in #ubuntu-bugs that says that upgrade for https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+bug/508173 renders GPT hardware unbootable.22:34
ubot4Launchpad bug 508173 in grub2 (Ubuntu Lucid) (and 2 other projects) "postinst has errors with grub-probe that cause the system to stop booting (affects: 1) (heat: 16)" [Medium,Fix released]22:34
persiaCould anyone remind me how we're supposed to respond?  This mostly affects Apple hardware, but there's bundles of that around.22:35
sbeattiepersia: mark the bug as verification-failed, have the reporter open a new bug about the regression and refer to the regression bug report in a followup comment to 50817322:37
persiaSo, the reporter is having a bit of trouble opening a new bug using any automation.  Do we care?22:37
persiaShould it be an unautomated bug?22:37
persiaAlso, do we know any regular testers with Apple hardware that could do verification testing?  I worry that we may want to take some significant action to avoid making Ubuntu not work there.22:38
sbeattiean automated bug would be preferred, but an unautomated bug is fine.22:39
persiaOK, cool.  Unfortunately, this sort of hardware can't USB-boot, and the reporter doesn't have a blank CD about.22:40
sbeattieBugger, looks like the update made it out of SRU, and into -updates?22:40
persiaSo there's no means to get back into Ubuntu until a shop can get visited, or there's some grub manipulation tool that can run inside OS X.22:40
persiaI'm not sure we test GPT heavily.22:41
* sbeattie doesn't know what GPT is.22:42
persiaIt's "GUID Partition Table", used on many EFI-booting systems.22:43
persiaEFI is the Extensible Firmware Interface.  GUID might be Globally Unique Identifier, but that doesn't make sense to me.22:43
persiaAnyway, it's how Apple Intel machines get partitioned, rather than using a DOS disklabel.22:44
persiaSo testing would involve a (newer) Mac22:45
persia(but note that at least some newer Macs have issues getting installed, making this tricky)22:45
sbeattieDoes our installer support EFI/GPT?22:47
sbeattievirtualbox-ose claims to support EFI booting, and the next version coming is supposedly going to support OSX installs.22:48
sbeattie(just wondering if virtualbox can be used as an accurate test environment)22:48
persiaIt kinda does, for some sorts of installs.22:53
persiaAt least for my hardware, default selections for desktop works and default selections for server fails.22:54
persiaBut I think mine differs from lots of stuff out there, or there would be more complaints, as default selections for desktop failed prior to Beta2 in lucid.22:54
persia(and my hardware is very new)22:55
persiasbeattie: I think I've gotten 508173 in the right state.  Could you confirm?23:10
sbeattiepersia: yeah, looks okay. Probably best to get cjwatson looking at bug 57666223:13
ubot4Launchpad bug 576662 in grub2 (Ubuntu) "latest grub2 renders gpt based system unbootable (affects: 1)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/57666223:13
persiaBad time-of-day, and even time-of-year (elections/UDS), but yeah.23:15
