cjwatsonogra_: I think I see how to fix bug 1028905 (at least by filtering out extended partitions in list-devices as you suggest, never mind the issue of mount hanging) - are you already on it?09:19
ubot2Launchpad bug 1028905 in cdrom-detect "cdrom-detect in quantal omap4 hangs trying to look for install media on an extended partition" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/102890509:19
cjwatsonI've at least reassigned that to debian-installer-utils, which seems closer to a proper place09:20
ogra_cjwatson,  i was on it on and off butu was rather trying to hunt down the root cause with mount instead of just filtering, i can implement some filtering i guess09:21
cjwatsonif you'd rather hunt down the root cause, I don't object :)09:21
cjwatsonjust looking for quick ways to kill -tracking bugs I guess09:21
cjwatsonone reason to filter is that anything which implements tests such as "does list-devices partition return anything" shouldn't consider extended partitions09:22
* cjwatson goes to look at users09:22
ogra_well, i'll add a filter first then and open a task against mount we can leave open09:22
cjwatsonmake sure either that that task isn't targeted to quantal, or that it's a separate bug09:25
cjwatsonsince I don't think we want to *commit* to it for 12.1009:25
cjwatsonright, I just checked all the users of list-devices *partition in upstream d-i09:25
cjwatsonall of them are looking for something they can mount09:26
cjwatsonso I'm pretty convinced it's correct to filter09:26
cjwatsonthis contributes slightly to bug 61351009:26

pjotrcjwatson: I'd like to request your attention for a bug in Ubiquity in Quantal, that causes confusion:10:52
ubot2Launchpad bug 1057452 in ubiquity "[Quantal] Ubiquity creates confusion about which part of the disk space will go to Ubuntu" [Undecided,New]10:52
pjotrCan this be helped in time for Quantal final edition?10:53
xnoxpjotr: that's a duplicate.10:55

ubot2Launchpad bug 947107 in ubiquity "No partition labels in the resize widgets" [High,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/94710710:55
xnoxI did some poking at it, and it's something nasty in gkt/cairo stack. I can get the resize widget to correct display: either space labels or the logo/titles.10:57
xnoxbut not both =/10:57
pjotrxnox: OK.... Well, maybe a provisional solution could be, that the explanatory text *above* the widgets, would mention clearly that the space *on the right side* will be the Ubuntu space.10:59
pjotrWhat do you think?10:59
xnoxI think the bug needs to be fixed. Because the intended layout that is set is:10:59
xnoxLogo (windows/ubuntu/other image), device (/dev/sda1), name (Ubuntu 12.04 / Windows 7) and then the size of the partition.11:00
xnoxbut some changes in gtk stack prevent displaying it correctly for some reason.11:00
xnoxthere is another bug open, that it is not accessible.11:01
xnoxBut i'm not sure which widgets to use to get a11y & screenreader to pick the changes up.11:01
pjotrxnox: the current text above the widgets is: "Allocate drive space by dragging the divider below:"11:02
pjotrmaybe this could become: "Allocate drive space by dragging the divider below (Ubuntu is on the right):"11:02
pjotrWhat do you think?11:03
xnoxpjotr: I don't deal with desing / user experience =))) Please read ubiquity design specification. http://goo.gl/Kokw5 And if you feel that needs changing, please open a separate bug with 'needs-design' tag.11:04
pjotrxnox: OK.... Do you have a name for me, of a developer who I can contact on that?11:07
xnoxmpt is the current maintainer of the ubiquity design11:08
mptpjotr, changing a string would break translations, and it is very late in the release cycle.11:09
mptto do that.11:09
pjotrmpt: I know, I'm a member of the Dutch translation team myself... :-)11:10
pjotrnevertheless, I think this is pretty important11:10
pjotrcreates confusion for beginners11:11
mptyes, it is11:11
pjotrI can guarantee a full Dutch translation if the text string would be changed.... :P11:12
mptxnox, I've found that it's unhelpful for bugs to be assigned to teams, because it gives the illusion of responsibility. Does the Canonical Foundations Team have a process for allocating bugs like 947107?11:13
ogra_cjwatson, http://paste.ubuntu.com/1230214/ how about something like that ?11:14
ogra_(not sure if we need to match other exotic extended partitions)11:15
cjwatsonmpt: No11:15
cjwatsonogra_: egrep -q '^ID_PART_ENTRY_TYPE=0x(5|f|85)'11:15
cjwatsonto match libparted11:15
cjwatsonand how about 'if $match && ! device_info ...'11:15
ogra_moving it into the outer "if" ?11:16
cjwatsonyeah, I think11:17

ogra_seems i'm not the only one :(15:51
cjwatsonogra_: Yeah, I think I've seen similar things before15:53
cjwatsonBut it's still right for the installer to avoid this anyway15:54
cjwatsonOh, and in fact your fix will avoid the bug as stated15:54
cjwatsonI'll follow up to say that15:54
ogra_but its disappointing to see it hasnt been actively researched ... and just magically disappeared15:55
ogra_i.e. its likely something we miss on omap4 currently15:55
xnoxcjwatson: how stable is the output of os-prober w.r.t. probing old releases? I'm debugging the re.subst in ubiquity and it seems wrong to me.15:55
cjwatsonxnox: The general syntax should be stable; exact names maybe less so15:56
cjwatsonAlthough I didn't think it was particularly unstable15:56
xnoxcjwatson: ok. thanks.15:56
xnoxcjwatson: I am running it against a few of my chroots and they are ok. Will get lucid chroot up, just in case it doesn't have what I want.15:57
