evokay, so it's clearly failing inside update.d/99*ubiquity, which is a bit odd given how simple the code is, so I'm wondering if debconf is getting wedged earlier and this is just surfacing the error00:44

ubot2Launchpad bug 738366 in ubiquity ""Erase Natty" wording DANGEROUSLY misleading" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/73836615:14

cjwatsonbah, the oem-config-debconf changes broke operation from the server CD16:40

CIA-31ubiquity: end up without a controlling terminal because tty1 has already started.16:48
cjwatsonev: IIRC you were scratching your head over bug 739891 or a similar bug; if it helps, it looks to me as though something, probably a maintainer script, has either written to stdout or read from stdin in an uncontrolled manner, causing the debconf protocol to get out of sync16:50

bdmurrayev: I'd like to have a bug day for ubiquity this week and specifically focus on recreating bugs in the New state and help to move them to Confirmed.  Does that seem alright with you?20:54
cjwatsonFWIW, the easiest bugs for at least me to fix are those that come with a recipe for recreating them in kvm - I don't know about ev20:56
cjwatsonnot that others are invalid, but ...20:56
bdmurrayAt one point in time I tried to create a multi-partition disk image for kvm to recreate a bug but didn't get very far.  Do you have any tips for that?20:58
