dluziusinstallation of 10.10 hands at $ prompt just when I expect theubuntu desktop02:59
dluziustrying to install on a Toshiba L655 Satellite laptop03:01
dluziuseverything goes as expected, even telling me installation was successful03:03
dluziuswhat am I doing wrong???03:06
genecso you removed the CD, it rebooted, and it booted to that screen?03:10
dluziusno, it reboots to grub, with Ubuntu highlighted, and after the countdown it asks me for a user name and password03:13
dluziusthen it goes to the $ prompt03:13
genecare the username/password prompt a typical text-based non-graphical Linux login?03:14
dluziusyes, all text-based03:15
genecwhat ISO did you download?03:15
dluziusthe i386 iso03:16
genecdluzius: what is the exact file name?03:17
genecthe mirror/URL would be nice but not needed yet.03:19
dluziusfilename is ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso03:20
dluziusam I using the wrong iso file?03:21
genecdluzius: is there any way you could run md5sum on the ISO file you have?03:21
dluziushow do I do that?03:22
genecthat's the right file name but it almost sounds like you might somehow have either a corrupt file, unofficial file, or the server ISO03:23
genecdluzius: what OS are you running?03:23
dluziusshould I use the live CD for 10.04?03:25
genecI think there are some md5sum programs for Windows.  let's take a quick search...03:26
genecI've used http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/md5sums/ before.03:27
dluziuswhat will this program tell us03:28
genecI believe its output is slightly different from normal but it's still easy to see.03:29
genecwell, it'll tell us if it matches what the official checksum is03:29
dluziuswait--wait.  I have the downloaded iso file o my Ubuntu desktop machine03:30
dluziusso how do I do it in a linux environment03:31
geneceasy: open up a terminal/command prompt and do 'md5sum ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso' assuming you're in the same directory as the file03:33
dluziusok, back in a few minutes03:33
genecI'm sorry I wasn't clear about asking what OS you were running.  I had meant what OS are you running that has access to the ISO file.03:34
genecmd5sum's output will be a 32 character hexidecimal (128 bit) number.03:37
dluziusthat would be Ubuntu 10.0403:38
dluziushere is the md5sum output: 59d15a16ce90c8ee97fa7c211b7673a803:44
genecstrange; it's a match to what I have.03:49
dluziusso, does this mean the iso file is not corrupted03:50
dluziusso, where do I go from here03:51
genecI'm not sure at the moment03:53
dluziusok, tks for all your help, I have to go now03:55

cjwatsonErick's suggestion in comment #4 seems pretty sensible to me ...14:23
cjwatsonI don't quite see how it would look inconsistent with the rest14:24
evreading now14:31
evI'm fine with eliminating the "Boot loader" line, if that's what you mean14:37
evmy point about consistency was directed at removing the page header14:37
evI had assumed any change here was out of the question, given how far we are in the cycle14:38
evbut if you think the release team will be okay with it, I'm happy to make that change14:38
cjwatsonthe release team will just want to make sure screenshots are up to date14:43
cjwatsonso it should just be a doc team notification14:43
evoh, cool14:53
evso to be clear, I'm removing the "Boot loader" line, boldfacing the next and keeping the comobox on the bottom, rather than inlining it14:53
cjwatsonI think so, yeah, if you agree that that's an improvement14:54
evI do14:54

evcjwatson: do you recall the historical context for while a capital letter as the first character of a username is invalid?16:43
evor rather why Ubuntu holds this convention when it's seemingly unnecessary16:51
cjwatsonI don't; I think it would require pretty serious investigation before making any change along those lines, though.  It wouldn't surprise me if some things had taken it as an assumption since it's been true for so long17:04
evindeed, I'm not intending to do this for natty :-P, though how funny would that be?17:07
evbut yes, I do understand that any such change would require a lot of investigation17:07

superm1ev, this oem-config-slideshow-ubuntu, how's it supposed to end up in the target system?17:10
superm1it doesn't look like it has any rdepends to me17:10
cjwatsonI know that there was that NAME_REGEX_SYSTEM change in adduser to allow it only for system users; I have a feeling that at one point there was a discussion about reserving initial-uppercase for system users, although I suspect it never really went anywhere17:10
superm1additionally it looks like ubiquity hardcodes on looking for the slideshow in self.slideshow = '/usr/share/ubiquity-slideshow' rather than /usr/share/oem-config-slideshow too17:14
evand it installs it manually17:15

evI'm trying to imagine a scenario whereby a capital letter in the first position would break existing tools17:41
evI suppose one way of solving this would be to see if any other major distros ease the restriction17:41
