is "DesktopActivated=1" the setting that tells me its a Headless Core or a Hybrid?

Found in the Forum:

Code: [Select]
DesktopActivated = 1 means that there are two desktops running in the same time (or could run).

Foxi wrote in his post:

AutostartMedia=0

This disables the MD part of the machine, thereby making it a core and not a hybrid.

Btw, howto setup a MD when Core is running on the same Machine/VM?
When you set up your core VM ensure 2 nics, the first set up as NAT, and the second on the Internal network provided by the VM.
Then set up a 2nd VM for an MD with no HD and one nic on the Internal network. I don't know what you use for running your VMs but you'll need to specify this MD boots from the Network.

Upgrade of the MD not so successful, log here http://paste.ubuntu.com/5674981/
I'm left with an MD attempting to start KDE desktop and failing.

-Coley.

hmm, issue there with plymouth not wanting to upgrade.  Something to try, edit the sources.list file on your MD, prior to upgrade, and comment out the /usr/pluto/deb-cache line.  The 1004 packages in the deb-cache could be interfering with upgrades.  Let us know if this fixes things, we may have to wipe the deb-cache prior to upgrading.

As anyways the packets in the deb-cache are useless after the upgrade we should maybe wipe it, and rebuild it with the new packets after upgrade ?

just to summarize all things left to do:

- For Headless installs: set AutostartMedia=0
- wipe the deb-cache prior to upgrading
- Headless/Hybrid/MDs: wipe deb-cache, and "apt-get update" to rebuild ?

i hope to get this done on the weekend.

The rebuild will happen automatically, the wipe needs to be done in the upgrade script, and the Packages and Packages.gz files recreated with no entries, prior to the upgrade happening.

Did you get any further with your script?
Last time I tried the MD upgrade it took an eon - and even with that don't recall it completing successfully.
Anything specific I can try?

Hey coley,

- Core Upgrade (hybrid and headless) works
- MD Upgrade works (at least for me), ran it yesterday and it finished within 8 hours....... could be worse! ;-)

Only one tiny thing is missing, you need to set permissons for initrd.img and vmlinuz for every MD!
This was the reason for my test yesterday!

No permission, no MD boot! ...

do:

chmod +r /usr/pluto/diskless/<number>/initrd.img
chmod +r /usr/pluto/diskless/<number>/vmlinuz
chmod +r /usr/pluto/diskless/boot/initrd.img
chmod +r /usr/pluto/diskless/boot/vmlinuz

cheers,
ochorocho

did you do the MD upgrades via chroot? or on the actual machines themselves?
