jibelI haven't verified it yet, but it seems related to the change with resolvconf16:32
cjwatsonstgraber: another one for you then :)16:36
cjwatsonactually never mind, I can just fix that16:36
stgraberit's going to be loooong day ;)16:37

ogra_cjwatson, out of curiosity, why cant d-i produce a netinst initrd from a PPA build ?16:47
ogra_that doesnt involve any debian-cd stuff, just needs udebs available, or am i wrong here ?16:49
cjwatsonogra_: assuming that Launchpad will publish the custom upload to a PPA!16:52
ogra_well, indeed, that ssumes that both, d-i and kernel are in that PPA and the binaries end up in that very same PPA16:52
cjwatsonmissing my point16:52
cjwatsoncustom uploads are a very specialised upload type16:53
cjwatsonafaik they have only ever been performed to the primary archive16:53
cjwatsonthey require lots of specialised code in Launchpad to handle them16:53
cjwatsonthis is the *output* from the d-i build16:53
cjwatsonogra_: looking through the Launchpad code, I can't actually find anything that prevents it right now, so it's possible I'm wrong; but you're well into untested territory, I think16:53
ogra_hmm, k16:53
cjwatsonand in any case I don't like the idea of branching the d-i package, it's hard enough to maintain sanely as it is16:54
ogra_yeah, thoug *if* we have to branch, the out of archive solution seemed saner to me16:54
ogra_if LP gets in our way thats indeed bad16:54
* GrueMaster never thought of d-i as sane in the firstplace.16:54
* ogra_ thinks infinity was also in favour of thje PPA idea though i dont know if he knows the LP specifics you mention16:55
cjwatsonI guess you can try it and see if it works.  You should try it before making any plans that assume it works.16:55
ogra_indeed, though its NCommander's project and he seems to want to go another route16:55
ogra_with a second d-i in universe or so16:56
cjwatsonI wouldn't accept that into the archive if I were the archive admin on duty16:58
cjwatsonhe hasn't talked to me about it16:58
cjwatsonI really don't think it's appropriate to fork d-i in universe.  It buys absolutely nothing, since LP would still publish the output to main.16:59
cjwatsonIf we're going to have it in the primary archive, we might as well just have the existing debian-installer package build it out of universe.16:59
ogra_right, if thats the case we wont gain a thing16:59
cjwatsonIt is the case; I have checked the code.16:59
cjwatson        self.targetdir = os.path.join(16:59
cjwatson            archive_root, 'dists', distroseries, 'main',16:59
cjwatson            '%s-%s' % (build_type, self.arch))16:59
cjwatsonAnd there's no overrides facility that could be used to change that.  You'd have to build an entire new edifice of stuff.17:00
ogra_yeah, understood17:00
infinityYeah, the custom upload processor stuff was never designed, per se.17:00
ogra_sounds like there is no sane solution at all17:00
infinityJust kinda slapped in.17:00
=== JanC_ is now known as JanC
cjwatsonIt was inserted with a drill.17:02
infinityogra_: The "do it in a PPA" idea was predicated on the idea that the final build would be changed to make the by-hand tar.gz be a .deb someone could move around and publish elsewhere.  It was a thought I never bothered to finish because it was just us banging out ideas for interim solutions (where I still say the best solution for a kernel and d-i we don't want to support is just to build it locally)17:02
ogra_ah, ok17:02
infinityBut we could also alter d-i to build against universe for specific targets, I suppose.  That could introduce other hilarity where, for instance, we currently demote udebs to universe when we don't want d-i to see them. :P17:03
ogra_oh, yeah, indeed ... fun ahead17:05
ogra_i wonder if we couldnt just push the kernel to main and demote it right after the last d-i upload17:08
ogra_(and likely mangle the d-i output for this kernel to not end in main at all)17:09
stgrabercjwatson: seems like d-i has a similar issue trying to copy /etc/resolv.conf (in 40netcfg based on the log I have here)17:09
cjwatsoncan I see the log?  /target/etc/ should be empty ...17:10
cjwatsonnot necessarily the case in ubiquity17:10
cjwatsonogra_: that's worse17:10
cjwatsonbetter to have d-i be honest17:10
cjwatsonogra_: your plan would make it hard to do post-release uploads17:11
ogra_well, actual post release uploads of that kernel would likely be with a supported version17:11
cjwatsonjust please don't play silly archive games17:11
ogra_what michael tries here is to fill the gap until a supported kernel exists i think17:11
cjwatsonif d-i is using a kernel from universe, it should say so17:12
ogra_oh, i didnt mean to hide that fact indeed17:12
ogra_just to make the building easier17:12
stgrabercjwatson: oh, sounds like my bad then (and GrueMaster's). We both had mirror issues so at least I probably have a dirty /target, he might well have had that too17:14
GrueMasterwait, what was my bad???17:16
ogra_GrueMaster, everything !17:17
cjwatsonstgraber: can I see the log anyway?17:17
GrueMasterI don't break things, I only find weak points in others work.17:17
stgrabercjwatson: http://paste.ubuntu.com/819048/17:20
stgrabercjwatson: my DNS server being stupid made that download fail.17:20
cjwatsonah, right.  we should be robust anyway.17:22
cjwatsonbut that code looks wrong in resolvconf land17:23
cjwatsonit'll cause all new systems to start out with /etc/resolv.conf as a file and resolvconf will ignore them17:23
cjwatsoncan you suggest a replacement?17:23
stgrabercjwatson: what was done in LXC and live-build is basically copy the content of /etc/resolv.conf from the outside to the target during install/build time, then at the end restore the symlink (moving it initially to .orig and moving back .orig to resolv.conf at the end)17:28
cjwatsond-i needs to preserve manually configured nameservers17:29
cjwatsonin static network configuration17:29
stgraberright, these should be converted to dns-search and dns-nameservers entry in /etc/network/interfaces17:31
cjwatsonis that new with resolvconf?17:32
stgraberit's implemented through an ifupdown hook shipped by resolvconf but I don't think it's particularly new17:33
stgraberso if we know we have resolvconf on the target, we should be setting these, otherwise we want to copy /etc/resolv.conf as we used to17:33
bdmurraythe launchpad.net/wubi/ page has an external downloads link which points to sourceforge which has a very old version of wubi17:45
bdmurraywould linking to evan's home directory on people be better?17:46
cjwatsonstgraber: hah, netcfg already writes dns-* as well :-)17:47
cjwatsonso we can just not copy resolv.conf if it's a symlink17:48
cjwatsoner if resolvconf is installed17:48
stgrabercjwatson: sounds good17:48
