Ian_Daniher Hey all, I'm trying to make a live USB key from a custom ubuntu-based .iso. I'm unable to get the usb-creator-gtk program to do respond to any button clicks or, connectedly, create a USB disk.03:22
Ian_Daniherusing version 0.2.22 on a fresh Lucid install03:23
Ian_Daniherthe ISO image I'm attempting to live-USB can be found here: http://teach.laptop.org/~it/USR-i386-20100208.iso03:23
Ian_Daniher*and yes, I tried running usb-creator-gtk as root03:24
evIan_Daniher: don't run usb-creator-gtk as root, it's entirely unnecessary.  It has a privileged process that it talks to over dbus for such tasks.08:56
evIan_Daniher: can you pastebin your ~/.usbcreator.log08:57
davmor2ev: am I being a dipstick? How do I put the install into debug mode when I don't get the grub options in the first place10:36
evdavmor2: can you elaborate?  Which grub options?  Ubiquity or Wubi?10:39
davmor2ev: so I've installed the windows side of wubi,  I've rebooted windows, as soon as grub kicks in it drops into grub shell10:41
davmor2ev: So normally I would select from the grub menu the debug option and carry on with the install but I don't have that option10:42
evoh, hold down shift10:42
the-dudecjwatson: whats the status of https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/netcfg/+bug/21896510:42
ubot2Launchpad bug 218965 in netcfg (Debian) (and 1 other project) "preseeding hostname doesn't work in a network install (affects: 1) (heat: 11)" [Unknown,New]10:42
evbefore you get to grub10:43
davmor2ev: nope tried that it's dropping straight into grub shell10:44
evdavmor2: can you go back into windows, edit the grub config under C:\Ubuntu to have 'set debug=all' at the top, then reboot.10:49
davmor2that I can probably do.   Need to reboot this machine biab10:50
davmor2ev: okay so added the set debug=all at the top of C:\ubuntu\install\boot\grub\grub.cfg rebooted straight into grub shell again11:05
evwas it more verbose in its output though?11:07
davmor2nope identical from what I can see.   There is no disk started so no files logged so I don't know if I can get output from grub shell itself11:14
davmor2I'm wondering if grub just can't find the disk and is just stopping dead11:23
evwhat do you mean by, "there is no disk started"?11:23
cjwatsonsuggests that it isn't managing to read that grub.cfg11:26
cjwatsonthe-dude: not currently high on my list11:27
davmor2cjwatson: could be11:40
the-dudecjwatson: can I help in any way?11:43
evdavmor2: can you file a bug so we can track this?11:44
cjwatsonthe-dude: probably best to raise it on debian-boot, since it's a long-standing bug there too11:44
cjwatsonsee the linked Debian bug11:45
davmor2ev: yeap11:46
evdavmor2: cheers11:46

cjwatsonev: did you have a chance to look at bug 588705?  it's still in the alpha-2 release notes, and we'll release with it, but I don't want to carry that note over too often12:32
