mptxnox, did you ever see this? https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-installer/2012-November/001150.html08:52
infinitympt: A preseed of "tasksel tasksel/first multiselect" (that is, a blank selection) should probably solve his issue.08:55
infinitympt: Oh, except we have ubuntu-standard in standard, and I bet the installer runs "taskel -ris" or "tasksel -nris", which will pick up those priorities regardless.08:59
* mpt doesn't know what tasksel is :-)09:00
infinitympt: His only hope may be to skip tasksel entirely, if he's that offended by out standard set.09:00
infinitympt: tasksel is a curses GUI for picking tasks.  It's also the last thing you see on a d-i or server install.09:00
infinitympt: But when run with flags like -r -i -s, etc, it installs everything of priority required, important, standard, respectively.09:01
infinitympt: Which *could* be what's happening when people frustratedly try to not install the standard task and get it anyway.09:01
infinity(Wild conjecture, it's 2am, and I can't be bothered to hunt the relevant code)09:01
infinityThat said, I'm unconvinced it's much of a problem to install standard by default.  It's trivial for people to remove it with a late_command if they're really offended by it, or to hack d-i.09:02
mptAh, so that's the bit where you check a [*] checkbox for things like "Web server"09:11
cjwatsonmpt: I think I already sorted him out by private mail10:15
mptah, ok10:15
cjwatsoncopied my answer to the list now10:16
cjwatson(for the record, with preseeding: "tasksel tasksel/skip-tasks string standard")10:17
xnoxneat preseed value.10:34
superm1cjwatson: would you mind looking at the approach in bug 1105289? in order to make our oem image in time we're probably going to have to (at least temporarily) fork grub-installer/ubiquity w/ it, but it would be better if the same thing would eventually be landing upstream for next time we resync16:04
ubot2Launchpad bug 1105289 in grub-installer (Ubuntu Raring) "Factory Installation w/ secure boot needs a force flag" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/110528916:04
cjwatsonactually I'd rather not introduce new interface for this in that way, because the plan is to make grub-install just install the SB image automatically on UEFI systems16:12
stgrabersuperm1: can't you just preseed the additional -signed packages and a late command doing "grub-install --uefi-secure-boot"? may be easier on maintenance than forking ubiquity/grub-installer16:15
superm1cjwatson: Ok, that sounds like a better solution indeed. any particular reason that you didn't do that initially?16:15
cjwatsonsuperm1: didn't think of it; when I did think of it, didn't have time16:16
cjwatsonSteve suggested it at UDS and I took a work item16:16
cjwatsonit's on my list for 13.04 / 12.04.316:16
superm1great to hear, thanks16:17
superm1stgraber: that's a good point, i'll have to look into it to see if it's workable for us16:18

johnsterdotcomI'm trying to use automatic-ubiquity to automate a 12.04 install. I've passed it a preseed file with ever so many 'd-i ...' commands, but I'm still not able to install/remove some packages, and my network is half-baked. Is there better (ie: more reliable) set of ubiquity-specific verbs I should be using? For instance, I've found 'ubiquity        ubiquity/keep-installed string icedtea6-plugin' ... that's what ma19:24
xnoxsome are documented here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbiquityAutomation19:25
xnoxnote that typically tasksel is not running, so one cannot install/remove packages as easily.19:25
xnoxyou can presseed ubiquity/success_command with something like 'in-target apt-get install pkgs..."19:26
johnsterdotcomI'll look into that doc ... and the apt-get trick will be handy, absolutely19:34
johnsterdotcomthank you19:34
johnsterdotcomi am still having an issue where the /etc/network/interfaces file is has:23:28
johnsterdotcomauto eth023:28
johnsterdotcomiface eth0 inet manual23:28
johnsterdotcombut nothing else23:28
johnsterdotcomis that a known issue?23:29
xnoxmine doesn't even have that. Only "auto lo"23:42
xnoxdo you have network-manager installed?23:42
xnoxnot sure, how you got that. Unless that's how the network was configured during the install and got copied into the target?23:47
xnoxi'm not sure, how it ended up looking like that for you.23:47

johnsterdotcomd-i netcfg/confirm_static boolean true23:53
johnsterdotcomI assume it wants to edit /etc/network/interfaces and not the network-manager config23:54
xnoxis all of that for ubiquity preseed?23:56
johnsterdotcomno there's quit a lot more.23:57
xnoxtypically ubiquity preseed is very short. E.g http://paste.ubuntu.com/1595235/23:57
xnoxto rely on automatic networking configuration as usually that should just work with typical dhcp based networks....23:58
xnoxabove preseed is used to automatically install ubiquity desktop cds in our jenkins lab.23:58
