Installation issues / Re: Ubuntu 8.10 end of life breaks installer
« on: November 09, 2010, 12:48:41 am »
Could you post your new sources.list file that worked.  coming from a new install i basically can't get anything.

Unfortunately the sources.list that I used to install has been written over. To get the installer to work I modified my sources.list and changed all references from "" into "". I then commented out all of the lines containing "universe", "multiverse" or "security".

/var/log/pluto/ConfirmDependencies.log may be able to help you.


I got the gc100 to install correctly including socat by re-adding a reference to universe. ConfirmDependencies.log only said "01 Error processing package socat" -- is there a way to turn up the logging verbosity globally to help debug?

Also -- My sources.list that I used to install appears to have been written over. Along with this, another reference has been added to which results in a 404. I believe the ConfirmDependencies program does this ( but I have not had time to dive into the code to verify where the old references are coming from.

Changed to and commented out entries for universe, multiverse and security. This allowed me to install successfully, but some packages (like emacs) still don't install and plugging in my GC100 results in a popup during the pnp configuration stating "failed to install socat"... I'm guessing that this is probably because I no longer have universe/multiverse but I am not sure what logfile to look in to confirm.

Tried to install off of the latest snapshot (23388) and the installer fails due to missing packages in the old-releases ubuntu archive. I installed kubuntu as normal from the dvd and updated my sources.list to point to (instead of or It seems that many .deb files are missing from the old-releases mirror as even installing basic packages like emacs results in a 404 error when trying to download the package file.

The relevant installer output is as follows

Not really sure what to do about this. Are there any alternative 8.10 mirrors that might be complete?
Attached are my sources.list and (truncated) install output
