blutHello installer developers14:11
blutThe official documentation ( https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/s390x/apbs02.html ) references an example file ( https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/example-preseed.txt ) in which it is written, that a) I can specify language, country, and locale separately; b) I can specify the keyboard layout.14:12
blutThese two functions do not work. The installer still asks me. Is there a known fix?14:13
blutThe 'd-i mirror/http/mirror select CC.archive.ubuntu.com' described in the aforementioned file is also ineffective?14:17
blutAnd who is to blame for the ubuntu bug tracker? why does it require an account for searches?14:17
cjwatsonThe installation guide does also mention that some parameters must be passed on the command line, because the preseed file is only processed a little later.14:21
cjwatsonThe Ubuntu bug tracker does not require an account for searches, unless of course you're trying to search a private project or similar.14:22
blutcjwatson: I went to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu and searched for preseed and on hitting search I was asked to sign it14:33
blutcjwatson: What does that mean, passed on the command line? As a separate command? I can do that. Or does that mean via the kernel parameters?14:34
cjwatsonblut: Hm, that must be an edge-case bug.  I suspect that one of the search results is assigned to a private team or something.  A bug report on https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad would be welcome.14:36
cjwatsonblut: e.g. instead of "d-i debian/installer/locale string en_US.UTF-8", use debian-installer/locale=en_US.UTF-8 on the kernel command line14:37
cjwatsonkernel parameters, yes14:37
bluthmm... no, it's still asking me14:42
blutAnyways... I think I will just start my weekend now and try some stuff on monday14:44
cjwatsonxnox: ^- perhaps you could support this s390x user14:44
xnoxcjwatson, if that person would still be online =)17:36
xnoxmaybe i should blog about things, and or start re-writting the guide properly.17:36
