Developers / Re: 1204 install broke my internet connection
« on: March 05, 2014, 12:40:14 am »
you're welcome. but more importantly: thank you for making them ;-)

It's what I do in the spare time I do have.

out of my league. But I can make suggestions as I am doing. Up to you to decide if they are useful enough to be implemented ;-)I am not sure if it is possible but maybe it is nice if that could be mentioned when it displays the page were it mentions no internet connection. People might wonder if something is wrong. Maybe the

If I knew how to fix that I'd do so in a heartbeat.  I know very little about ubiquity and have not had a chance to look into it.  I'm happy to accept patches  ;)  heh.

installer can give a choice asking which interface should be used for local and which for internet access?I used

You can certainly file a feature request for this, however internet and networking is NOT enabled during the install.  After the first reboot the system will do dhcp requests on eth0 first and then eth1, whichever device responds will be assigned as the external device. 

When rebooting, since the usb stick was still in it booted the usb stick and got stuck even before getting to the kde installer. (which is strange anyway cause it had just installed from it). I unplugged the stick and rebooted and it continued booting to lmce.

The DVD installer will not by default go to the live boot or to the installer.  When the DVD is inserted into the drive you will be presented with a menu that times out to the default "Boot from first hard disk".  There are some nice onscreen messages that are missing during the install, I'm working on getting them functional again.

You can see my comments in the ticket.  Essentially resolv.conf is correct, is intended to be there as bind9 provides dns services to the core and dhcp clients.  The bad data in the dhclient file we have no control over as that is the DHCP data that is provided by the ISP.  DHCP data for internal network clients is configured in the dhcp configuration files.

Thank you for testing the 1204 alpha snapshots!

I think being able to control the interfaces a bit during installation is nice (swap&test). At least the installation broke my
internet and I was disconnected from the ISP and unable to recover so I got stuck without internet and thus life :-) (Linuxmce was probably sending offers over the internet which killed my internet connection). I suppose we need

We'll gladly accept patches to the ubiquity installer!  :)

During installation it said no internet (while that was plugged in since it is was the machine that was running lmce).

This is by design.  There is no networking during the DVD install.  The ubiquity screen is a remnant of the kubuntu installer and has no relevance during the lmce install.  The installer then arranges the interfaces the same way it did in 1004. 

Also there was no warning to remove the usb stick. (I did not remove it and then the reboot got stuck).

Please be more specific than 'got stuck'.  If you were using a current snapshot then it would automatically boot the first physical hard drive in the machine after rebooting.  But you didn't specify which snapshot you were installing from.

I also saw that the patch for 10.04 regarding the local host in the nameserver list is not implemented yet.

Please be more specific that 'the patch for 10.04'.  What patch are you referring to?


I have made many test these past days and I would like to share them all.

Thanks for testing!!!

1.  Problem with the NOISY screen is solved by changin the grub.cfg
set gfxmode=1024x768
After this i finally got some video output and was able to follow the AVWIZARD

2. After that, I am unable to get the MD's running.  The system gives me dhcp but It wont for booting usin PXE, I have no idea why.  I ran Diskless TBZ without no errors found and nothing!
If I go to webadmin and check network settings, it says
"No record in Device_DeviceData for Network Interfaces"
Any ideas?

From the command line, with root privileges, execute the following three commands:
Code: [Select]
mysql pluto_main -u root -e "delete from Device_DeviceData where FK_Device=1 and FK_DeviceData in (28,32,292)"
mysql pluto_main -u root -e "update Device_DeviceData set FK_Device=1 where FK_Device=0"
. /usr/pluto/; SetupNetworking

This *should* be fixed in the new snapshot.

On one of my attempts, I found that appguard was giving me some headaches 
So since this is out of the scope of "NOISY SCREEN" I could call this post SOLVED and follow up with a new one of this issue.

Yes, if this continues to be an issue, open another topic, drop into #linuxmce on Freenode IRC or open a ticket in trac @ so we can have a dialogue about any issues you are having.  :)

Thanks again for testing!

There is nothing that has changed in the AV setup for some time so I don't expect any changes.  You'll have to work with L3 to determine what is happening.

This is normal.  The ubiquity installer will tell you that you are not connected to the internet.  And likely it is not.  That is fine and not a bug.  I need to figure out a way to remove that ubiquity screen so people are not confused by it.


Still been some additional networking issues.  I believe they are solved but still have to test later today when the new snapshot hits.

Hi, it's my bad.  I had erroneously commented a couple of lines.  The patch is in svn and you can grab it there now.  Sorry about that.  :(

Can you please pastebin the entire log.  This all works here so I need to see the whole process.

Hi,  The debconf-utils package should have been available.  The patch I put in should deal with what I believe is a bad sources.list file.

The Feb 24 snapshot has a serious network setup bug that is preventing all internal network functionality.  This should be fixed in the next snapshot (crosses fingers).

I've done a fresh 1004 install and ran the and ran into the same problem you described.  I made a small change to Diskless_CreateTBZ and have submitted it to svn and requested a new package be created.  This should happen in the next day or two, assuming no other issues arise. 

Thanks for letting us know and let me know how things go.

Hmm.   L3 is the AV guy.  I'll have to let him chime in on that one.

I own errors in that file ;)  and will have a look at getting it updated.  For now, if you search for 'debconf-utils' and replace it with 'debconf-i18n' you should have success.

I use it occasionally.  Mostly to play Tank on Ataria 2600 with my wife.

xorg.conf generated on Feb. 24/12 28755 but I still have to modify to fill screen.

What do you mean by "modify to fill screen."?  Can you be more specific as to what you are doing.


There is no dhcp or internal networking at all on 28755.  Fix in the next snap.
