=== ubuntu is now known as whiteheat
whiteheathi, anybody had issues installing oneiric? Works fine from live CD, then install, then reboot, then wont start X as it cant find driver for nvidia05:12
whiteheattried modprobing nv and nouveau driver, failed. Tried compiling module, fails - suspect it is due to not being a 2.6 kernel, but a 3.0 kernel05:31

stgrabercjwatson: hi! I have what should hopefully be a quick and easy partitioning question for you ;) Yesterday I got access to the upgraded version of one of my datacenter servers (personal one) and it came with 2x3TB hard disks. I'm trying to install Precise on it having the system and bootloader/boot partitions in a software RAID1. My initial try with a regular ext4 partition over RAID1 (as I'd do with a non-GPT disk) made grub fail and I'14:47
cjwatsontruncated at "made grub fail and I'"14:48
stgrabermade grub fail and I'm now trying to understand what I need to change to make it work ;)14:48
cjwatsonHm.  Sounds like we have a grub bug to fix then ...14:49
cjwatsonYou can often debug this kind of thing in userspace with grub-probe14:49
stgraberso what I currently have on both disks is a 1GB RAID1 partition and a 1.5TB RAID1 partition. The first one (md0) contains an ext4 filesystem used for /boot and the second one (md1) is an LVM PV used for the system. Is that supposed to work on GPT or am I missing something?14:50
cjwatsonThat should in principle all work on GPT, yes.14:52
cjwatsonMaybe we have a lurking 32-bit variable somewhere or something.14:53
cjwatsonIn fact if you only have 1.5TB in use then it should *definitely* work.14:53
stgraberok, will do another install using that and then grab whatever you need to debug (the disks are blank, so I'm currently limited to a rescue system running kvm on the disks)14:54
cjwatsonDoes GRUB fail to install or fail to boot?14:54
stgraberfail to install, complaining about embedding space IIRC14:55
cjwatsonDid you create a BIOS Boot Partition?14:55
stgraberok, that's what I'm missing then. Can I create that on top of software RAID1?14:56
cjwatsonI think it needs to be directly on GPT14:57
cjwatsonIn your situation I'd probably create one on each disk14:57
stgraberright, then run grub-install twice to make sure both would work (degraded boot)?14:58
cjwatsongrub-install ought to be run to both disks, yes15:03
bdmurrayev: could you look at bug 925779?16:09
ubot2`Launchpad bug 925779 in wubi "Wubi shouldn't fail when uninstalling if the BCD entry is missing" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/92577916:09
evbdmurray: I don't have time to fix it right now, but I've triaged it16:10
evbcbc's point is correct16:10
bdmurrayev: it sounds to me like he is personally stuck though16:11
bdmurrayev: which is too bad since he does lots of wubi bug triage16:11
evokay, followed u16:14
bdmurrayev: great, thanks16:15
evno problem16:16
bdmurraystgraber: have you seen bug 924998?16:44
ubot2`Launchpad bug 924998 in network-manager "no dns resolution when wireless connection is enabled by ubiquity" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/92499816:44
stgraberbdmurray: that'd be one of cyphermox16:46
cyphermoxI'll get to it soon16:48
stgraberbdmurray: one thing that'd usually be useful on top of the current attachments would be /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf and something checking where /etc/resolv.conf points to (and more importantly, making sure it's a symlink)16:51
stgraber(in this case, I'd expect the syslog to contain enough information to figure this out, but having the extra information directly from apport would be nice)16:51
bdmurraystgraber: for ubiquity or more packages than just it?16:52
stgraberbdmurray: whenever we deal with something network related, so ubiquity, NetworkManager, resolvconf and ifupdown at least16:52
bdmurraystgraber: there is a general attach_network function in apport that could gather that and then be used by ubiquity and other pacakges16:57
stgraberthat sounds good16:57
bdmurraycjwatson: I was looking at bug 912031 and noticed that partman-auto information isn't included in ubiquity bug reports.  I could add it in the apport package hook but do you think needing that info comes up often?18:05
ubot2`Launchpad bug 912031 in partman-auto "ubiquity crashed with TypeError in partman_column_name(): argument of type 'NoneType' is not iterable" [High,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/91203118:05
cjwatsonbdmurray: /var/log/partman is included18:10
cjwatsonbdmurray: I can't think what other information you might be talking about18:11
bdmurraycjwatson: package version information sorry18:12
bdmurraycjwatson: it doesn't appear in Dependencies.txt18:12
cjwatsonbdmurray: Not needed, it's part of the ubiquity binary package, not a separate .deb18:13
cjwatsonpartman-auto is only a udeb so ubiquity can't depend on it in the usual way18:13
cjwatsonsee the "Automatic update of included source packages" stuff in ubiquity's changelog18:13
cjwatsonBut we fix bugs in the included source packages rather than forking them for ubiquity18:14
cjwatsonIt's a slightly odd arrangement but it works :)18:14
bdmurraysure but then "This bug was fixed in the package partman-auto - 93ubuntu19" isn't very helpful18:15
cjwatsonThat's OK18:15
cjwatsonBecause, I mean, it *was*18:15
cjwatsonit's not IME worth the effort of adding ubiquity tasks, and I generally leave an explicit comment in the odd case where users might get confused18:15
cjwatsongenerally speaking it doesn't seem to have been a problem18:16
bdmurrayI guess I could write a bug pattern for partman_column_name and ubiquity version < 2.9.1618:18
cjwatsonbdmurray: ubiquity versions and the versions of its included sources map one-to-one, so that kind of transformation is safe, yes18:25
bdmurrayI think the challenge is getting from reading bug 9120931 seeing the changelog entry and *knowing* how ubiquity is built to find out which version of ubiquity it was fixed in18:26
cjwatsonI'd be happy to comment explicitly on hot bugs to that effect, but I don't think we need it in general18:28
cjwatsonunless you're talking about doing it automatically, in which case we could build some kind of lookup table from ubiquity's source history18:28
bdmurrayI'll think about it more18:29
bdmurraystgraber: I have a system experiencing bug 645449 if there is something useful I could do / gather18:51

stgraberbdmurray: do you happen to have a reproducable way of triggering it?19:04
bdmurraystgraber: Using the keyboard to move up and down in the layout choice multiple times seems to do it for me19:05
bdmurraystgraber: I've recreated it more than once19:05
stgraberbdmurray: good, that was the biggest issue with that bug, being able to actually reproduce it somewhat reliably ;)19:06
stgraberbdmurray: can you try it with ubiquity in debug mode?19:06
bdmurrayalso bug 913779 has a good description19:06

stgraberbdmurray: indeed, that's a pretty good description. Other than looking for a python stack trace in the usual logs, I can't think about something else that'd be useful at this point, but it might be worth actually targeting the bug for beta-119:09
stgraberbdmurray: my plan is to switch to 90% installer work (bug fixing) post feature freeze (with the remaining 10% being networking bugs), so I'll be sure to look at this one (especially as Danial Stoni has been poking me quite a few times, on LP, IRC, direct e-mail and through the Ubuntu CH mailing list ...)19:10
bdmurraystgraber: this is all I see in debug19:21
bdmurray/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/misc.py:572: UserWarning: set_indicator_keymaps: this function currently does not work19:21
stgraberright, this one is expected (we explicitly turned it off in the code) and shouldn't be the source of the problem (because we changed it in Oneiric and the bug was already there long before)19:28

cjwatsonok, so I guess I didn't entirely manage to figure out why on earth None values are sneaking in there20:16

stgraberbdmurray: I'm not sure. Edubuntu simply doesn't have that screen. Anyway, it's most likely a gfxboot question more than a casper question (unless I don't understand which purple screen he's talking about)22:43
bdmurrayI interpret keyboard + man to mean the gfxboot screen22:44
stgraberright, so that's the screen shown before the menu (unless you don't press anything, then you boot directly). So should definitely be re-assigned to gfxboot, as for the config, I really have no idea.22:45
