<smako>
Greetings
00:30
I'm having some trouble with ltsp-build-client
00:31
After running it I get the following error message
00:31
Setting up linux-firmware...
00:31
Processing triggers for libc-bin...
00:31
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place ...
00:32
Updating /var/lib/tfptboot directories for chroot ...
00:32
Updating /srv/tftp directories for chroot ...
00:32
<vagrantc>
don't see anything unusual yet...
00:32
<smako>
error: LTSP client installation ended abnormally
00:33
<vagrantc>
!release
00:33
<ltsp`>
release: please mention the linux distro and release you're using :)
00:34
<smako>
Right... I'm using Ubuntu Server 12.04
00:34
And I'm issuing the command ltps-build-client --arch i386
00:34
Since I'm building for an i386 client, but I do get the same mistake at the same point if I build for an amd64 machine (my server machine)
00:36
I'm not sure what to make of the error message. Does any have some idea what might cause the error to pop up at that point?
00:40
Even with that incomplete install I can still boot the client using PXE. Ubuntu does start, but crashes and defers me to busybox. It seems that the client doesn't have access to the filesystem (but of course the install is incomplete, so I guess this is to be expected)
00:46
<vagrantc>
smako: try ltsp-build-client --arch i386 --debug
00:46
smako: that should tell you exactly which hook is failing
00:46
i haven't used --debug in a long time, hopefully it still works
00:47
<smako>
good idea, i'm trying it right now
00:57
vagrantc: Didn't finish installing, but I've noticed already some strange features... For example it couldn't download sysv-rc or ubuntu-keyring
00:58
I had to restart the installation because I've pressed Ctrl-C by accident ... (bad habit)
00:58
<vagrantc>
sounds like a bad mirror?
00:58
or network connection
00:58* vagrantc wonders if ubuntu even installs sysv-rc
00:59
<smako>
yeah, maybe it's not as essential anymore as it sounds (sysv-rc)
00:59
<vagrantc>
i guess they do have a sysv-rc package on precise
01:00
i would've expected upstart to replace it entirely, but i guess it's there... but that's besides the point
01:00
<smako>
let's wait and see what DEBUG says when it reaches the error...
01:01
<vagrantc>
smako: are you behind a proxy or something?
01:01
<smako>
no
01:01
<vagrantc>
if it fails to download whatever packages it's trying to install, that's likely going to fail.
01:01
<smako>
oh
01:01
yeah it has problems getting some of the packages
01:02
it downloads the overwellming majority of the packages
01:02
for some packages there are errors
01:02
for example
01:02
W: Couldn't download package dash (ver 0.5.7-2ubuntu2 arc i386)
01:02
<vagrantc>
something is amiss for the mirror your using, your network connection, etc.
01:02
<smako>
hmmm...
01:03
it has to be the mirror then
01:03
so is ltsp using the mirrors from /etc/opt/sources.list ?
01:04
<vagrantc>
it has a default set of mirrors
01:04
<smako>
besides dash it couldn't download python-minimal so far
01:05
W: Couldn't download package python2.7-minimal (ver 2.7.3-0ubuntu3 arc i386)
01:05
<vagrantc>
smako: exactly which packages it fails to download don't really matter
01:05
<smako>
yeah
01:05
i got the ltsp from apt-get
01:05
do you think i should try to compile the newest version from source?
01:06
<vagrantc>
how will that fix your network?
01:07
smako: it's some sort of networking related error between you and the mirror, or the mirror itself.
01:09
<smako>
so i got consistently the same packages which fail to download (dash, etc.)
01:09
I assume it must be an error on the mirror side?
01:10
wait
01:10
it just downloaded dash
01:10
hm....
01:10
clusterfuck
01:13
i get my connection through an eternet cable which then goes to some other place god knows where... it's like a campus connection
01:16
Yes it's very strange. Now the ltsp-client stops at a different place for example after it failed to download libstdc++ package. Well at least it seems that it's a networking problem...

<markit>
anyone knows how change dns ip at runtime? There is resolver.conf installed, and I've set dns in /etc/network/interfaces, and I've dnsmasq installed. Before the resolver stuff, was just a matter of editing /etc/resolv.conf, but how can I do now?
14:15
mm probably cat /var/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf
