ogra_cjwatson, i just filed bug 89026115:05
ubot2Launchpad bug 890261 in ubiquity "can not execute oem-config in a chrooted environment" [Medium,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/89026115:05
cjwatsontell me when it has debugging information :)15:06
cjwatsonI honestly have real trouble believing that chrooting is the problem15:06
cjwatsonin and of itself15:06
ogra_yeah, its likely the way i call it and dont specify a frontend15:07
ogra_fyi, linaor wants to use it exactly the wayx i described in the bug, that should solve a lot of differences with the linaro images :)15:07
ogra_cjwatson, btw, for proper execution we will need a switch for the final reboot call ... chrooted reboot here causes a host reboot for me15:30
ogra_i guess we dont want that on image builders :)15:30
ogra_(i.e. when it drops me into the rootshell after a failed attempt and i ctrl-d out of it)15:32
cjwatsonprobably a matter of moving the handling of ubiquity/reboot to somewhere the installer will see it15:37
cjwatsons/the installer/oem-config/15:37
ogra_yeah, well, its only happening if i get into the fallback shell anyway15:38
ogra_and i dont plan to actually run ubiquity chrooted, only oem-config15:38
ogra_so if all works fine it should never show up15:38

ubot2Launchpad bug 889656 in debian-installer "installer stops using proxy " [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/88965615:43
CarlFKis that the right package, and can I can help debug code?15:44
cjwatsonCarlFK: what is in /target/etc/apt/apt.conf at the point of the failure?15:46
CarlFKcjwatson: ill have that for you in 20 min15:47
cjwatsonalso /etc/resolv.conf and /target/etc/resolv.conf15:47
cjwatsonI suspect that one of the packages installed during the pkgsel phase has clobbered the configuration installed by apt-setup15:51
cjwatsontracking down which may be a nightmare15:51
cjwatsonCarlFK: (BTW, don't bother carefully selecting snipped-out bits of syslog to put in the bug description; I always skip over that and go straight for the full log anyway)15:55
CarlFKcjwatson: yeah, I some how thought it would only be a screen full ... so much for my estimates15:56
CarlFKcjwatson: http://dpaste.de/h1Ess/16:17
CarlFKit hasn't thrown the error yet, but it seems to be stuck in the "Retrieving file 1 of 2" part16:18
cjwatsonDo you recognise "pc8" as a proxy?16:18
CarlFKthat's also
cjwatsonIt's not your preseeded one, but it's somehow ended up in /target/etc/apt/apt.cnf16:19
cjwatson(BTW please attach this to the bug, I'm doing other things and I definitely can't guarantee to finish this today)16:19
CarlFKah, sorry, it is the preseeded one now16:19
cjwatsonthen I need a new matching syslog16:20
CarlFKunderstood. no prob16:20
CarlFKdo you need my preseed files too?16:20
cjwatsonnever hurts16:20
cjwatsonnot seeing anything obvious here unfortunately16:20
cjwatsonwill probably need to attempt to set up a matching environment to debug it16:21
CarlFKI'll attach a tar that has all the configs and a script to build it16:22
cjwatsonrealistically, I'm on dev release maintenance this month ... maybe a good opportunity for somebody else to get into debugging the installer16:23
CarlFKhow likely is this effecting debian?  I know a dd that might be up for it, but he might get grumpy if it's just ubuntu16:26
cjwatsonhard to say16:47
cjwatsonbut if he's negative about Ubuntu then he might not be the best person to investigate something that starts as an Ubuntu bug :-)16:47
CarlFKhe has meet you: Holger Levsen <holger at debian.org>  h01ger16:51
CarlFKHe helped me with pycon, so had to use my ubuntu laptops, "I'm surrounded by Ubuntu... woa."16:53
CarlFKI think I'll bug him - might be amusing :)16:54
cjwatsonI know Holger, yes17:01
cjwatsonfixture of debconf :-)17:01
cjwatson(er, the conference, not the program)17:01
cjwatsonCarlFK: maybe try reproducing it in Debian first?17:02
CarlFKthat's worth a shot17:02
CarlFKcjwatson: looks like it is caused by one of my pkgsel/include packages: http://pastie.org/286385721:19
CarlFKI pull that line, no problem.  put it back, proxy problem...21:19
CarlFKsquid-deb-proxy-client  seems a likely clupret21:21
CarlFKthat gets run as part of the install, right?21:35
superm1cjwatson: oh i forgot to ask you at UDS, is there any liklihood that the switchover isolinux->grub2 is going to happen for precise, or is it still put off blocked on the same stuff as previous?21:44
cjwatsonsuperm1: if it happens in the same cycle as I have a baby, it won't be by my efforts ...21:46
cjwatson(at this point I really don't object to somebody else attacking it; I seem to have failed so far)21:46
superm1cjwatson: ah I see :)  what were the major blockers that were needed for it?21:46
cjwatsonthere are several things that need to be done in gfxmenu to implement the look of gfxboot, and upstream's guidance on the subject has been that they'd like it to be done in a way that allows the same menu file to be usable without gfxmenu; i.e. it needs to degrade gracefully21:48
cjwatsonthe basic UI elements are written up as work items, but I never really got very far with them, unfortunately21:48
cjwatsonthe UEFI menu is proof that we *could* use grub if we didn't care about the look of the thing, so it's all about UI at this point21:49
superm1okay that's good to know21:49
cjwatson(well, not quite proof I suppose, but I'm pretty sure there are no blockers at that level anyway)21:49
cjwatsonI would be happy to support and assist respins that wanted to use grub and didn't mind a basic UI21:50
cjwatsonI don't know if that helps21:50
superm1well it would be for OEM stuff, but i was hoping to not jump ahead of distro21:50
superm1in case there are other parts that break unexpectedly21:50
superm1ideally i'd like to help with some of those work items, but i'm not sure how time commitment will look for me on the matter21:52
superm1er better worded, i'm not sure i'll have the time to commit seeing them all through21:53
cjwatsonbasically this cycle I'm getting this +1 maintenance team going, doing some performance work on germinate/launchpad so that we can run the publisher more frequently, possibly squeezing in a tool to generate a preseed file based on an install, and anything else is a bonus21:53
cjwatsonbecause as of February my attention span is going to drop through the floor21:53
superm1Ok.  well if I do get the time to help out then, i'll look to you to help review what I come up with hopefully before you disappear for a while21:55
cjwatsonright, I do feel bad about not getting this done, I don't like getting stuck on things21:55
cjwatsonbut that boils no potatoes21:56
cjwatsonCarlFK: I can imagine that not helping matters, yes22:07
cjwatsonyes, the postinst of anything you install will be run in /target during pkgsel22:07
CarlFKcjwatson: im still digging.. the URL i posted is for the squd server config, not the client22:08
