CarlFKout,err = p.communicate()00:43
cjwatsonwe've dealt with it00:43
cjwatsonand no, that's not the right fix00:44
cjwatsonit's better to have stdout go straight to stderr (stdout=sys.stderr) rather than having to handle all the output explicitly in ubiquity00:44

StevenKWhee, grub2 *and* GPT on this new machine, two things I have no clue about.09:29
StevenKI'm getting "This GPT partition lbale has no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible"09:30
StevenKI suspect I have screwed something up, but I have no clue what.09:30
cjwatsonStevenK: http://grub.enbug.org/BIOS_Boot_Partition09:41
StevenKcjwatson: Which, helpfully, is a 404. :-)09:41
StevenKcjwatson: Sorry.09:51
cjwatsonunfortunately none of the current GRUB developers have admin access to the wiki09:51
cjwatsonhttp://replay.waybackmachine.org/20090613031004/http://grub.enbug.org/BIOS_Boot_Partition is sort of OK09:51
cjwatsonguess I need to write some proper documentation on that for the texinfo manual09:52
StevenKcjwatson: So I've created /dev/sda[12] on the disks, but given that page I set the flag on the disk itself or the partition?09:53
cjwatsonoh, wait, I kind of did09:53
cjwatsonthe partition09:53
StevenKcjwatson: Why didn't d-i do this for me?09:53
cjwatsonit should have done.  if it didn't I want a bug with logs09:54
cjwatsonit definitely has code for it09:54
StevenKAnd parted /dev/sda1 bios_grub errors with "expecting a partition number"09:55
cjwatsonoh, yeah, that old version of the page is wrong09:56
cjwatsonhttp://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#Images has the right rune09:56
cjwatsonI should probably create a new section for that though09:56
cjwatsonor http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://grub.enbug.org/BIOS_Boot_Partition09:57
StevenKRight, Grub installed, let's see if it boots09:59
StevenK... and it reboots constantly. Awesome10:00
cjwatsonI'm not going to be able to look right now, I'm afraid :-/10:08
cjwatsonif you can rescue-disk it and at least extract logs, that would be great10:08
cjwatsonplease tell me this isn't a Mac10:09

cjwatsonok, what was wrong?10:42
StevenKPartition 1 is the 100MB RAID1 /boot, which is helpfully marked as biosgrub, not raid10:43

aliguoriHi, I'm trying to automate a guest installation in QEMU.  In an ideal world, it would work with just the standard ISO and no special network infrastructure15:40
aliguoriI can get a guest booting based on the kernel/initrd in the ISO, I'm then trying to feed it a preseed15:40
aliguoriI see two very strange things: 1) If I use a preseed/early_command to create a preseed file in the rootfs, and then use preseed/file to point to it, the installer still prompts for questions15:41
aliguoribut curiously, if i pass a wrong file name, it throws an error, so it's doing somethign with it15:41
cjwatsoncan you extract a syslog from it?15:41
aliguoriany other preseed action command doesn't do anything unless i have a preseed/file or preseed/url specified, so just adding "preseed/run" to the kernel command line, the run command never gets executed15:42
aliguoricjwatson, once interactive install kicks off, how can i get to a shell?15:42
aliguori(early_command does get run no matter if file or url is specified FWIW)15:42
aliguorifyi, the way i'm feeding in the preseed file is using early_command to read it from a the serial port15:43
aliguoriah, another VT15:44
cjwatsonthat's the easiest way yes15:44

evcjwatson: mpt and I were sitting down to discuss redesigning the advanced partitioning page in ubiquity for O. I recalled you wrote this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubiquity/SoftwareRaid , but I wonder if the focus going forward should be on btrfs instead (as it supports raid like configurations and and seemingly all of the use case for LVM)16:09
evwhat are your thoughts?16:10
cjwatsonbtrfs is too early to commit to it16:10
cjwatsonthere'd be significant risk of it just plain not working16:10
cjwatsonbear it in mind, but it shouldn't be the design focus at the moment16:11
evcjwatson: sure, I didn't mean we should commit to implementing that part of the design now16:17
evbut that the visual design for anything beyond what we already support should be of functionality provided in btrfs16:17
evI guess it's of no matter as the interface for creating logical volumes would look the same no matter which implementation you choose16:18
cjwatsonI'm not even sure anything like that in btrfs is stable16:18
evindeed, but given our history with respect to implementing any advanced partitioning options, I suspect all of btrfs will be rock solid by the time we get around to adding support for logical volumes16:21
evbut as mentioned, I was wrong16:21
evas presumably a logical volume is a logical volume, regardless if it's LVM or btrfs underneath16:21
evas far as the visual design is concerned16:22
cjwatsona successful design would hopefully make it look that way for logical volumes, yes16:22
cjwatsonI'm less sure you can do that for RAID16:22
evmirroring and striping are terms in the btrfs vocabulary as well16:23
evthough as you suggest, they're still very much in development16:23
evcjwatson: at any rate, are there specific things you'd like us to address in the redesign?16:26
seb128bug #727726 is still an issue, should it be assigned to someone?16:27

cjwatsonev: as long as it's vaguely implementable in terms of partman-{lvm,raid} ...16:27
seb128it means you don't see the icons in there by default if you don't know they are there16:27
evcjwatson: but of course16:27
evseb128: huh, I wonder what we're doing wrong there.16:28
evI'll take it as it's my poor copy and paste job that got us here16:28
seb128ev, thanks16:29
cjwatsonev: I think pretty much all my thoughts on it should be in the old spec16:29
seb128ev, btw I still get http://people.canonical.com/~seb128/ubi.png as well16:30
evcjwatson: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubiquity/AdvancedPartitionerRewrite ?16:30
seb128is that a bug or not?16:30
seb128ie used to have text on the right iirc?16:30
evseb128: only if you have an internet connection (the release notes link)16:30
cjwatsonev: yeah, sounds right - syncing an image so my network is very very slow16:31
seb128ev, ok, that's why then, so notabug, thanks ;-)16:31
cjwatsonev: looks like I meant https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubiquity/SoftwareRaid, that's more current16:31

seb128ev, cjwatson: is the keyboard selector dialog in ubiquity supposed to have a layout selected on the right column? or does "no selection" means "default for the selected country"?17:42
cjwatsonit is supposed to have a variant selected on the right; I think there's a buglet there17:46
seb128cjwatson, ok, it doesn't in french, I will check for open bugs and file one if there is none17:49
cjwatsonI mean "it ought to have, but it currently does not" - English too17:49
seb128cjwatson, btw I confirm that the odd xkb dialog being shown issue is fixed17:49
seb128cjwatson, do you need a bug for the right list selection thing?17:50
