11:40 sanso|workhmm... fai-kernels could just include the kernels for all architecture, wouldn't that be something?
11:45 h01gersanso|work, fai-kernels will be removed for lenny. we'll just use std-debian kernels
11:49 h01gerbaldy, sounds like that is the problem :) (re: mail)
11:49 h01gerbaldy, read NEWS.Debian.gz
11:49 h01ger(in case you havent done so already :)

15:00 Linrebuilding
15:00 dukezok
15:00 LinI know that you use debian
15:01 Linbut there is any problem with ubuntu fai instalations?

15:20 nyali have written my kernel module in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

15:20 nyali think it's ok
15:21 nyalyou have to use another bootcdwrite.conf
15:21 dukezyes
15:21 dukezfor directories
15:21 dukezi see it
15:21 dukezi think it can work
15:21 nyalyes i think too
15:21 Lindukez: I think that there is a conflict beetween upstart and init
15:21 Linsysvinit
15:21 dukezLin> so you cannot install both on NFSROOT
15:22 Linhow can I setup WHAT will be installed on nfsroot?
15:22 dukezLin> choose one, and make the package list work with pat-get install
15:22 nyali have to go
15:22 dukez! /etc/fai/make-fai-nfsroot=>NFSROOT=XXXXX old fai
15:22 dukezbye nyal
15:22 dukeztx for the script sharing
15:22 nyalno problem :)
15:22 dukezLin or /etc/fai/NFSROOT file
15:23 nyalif it can help
15:23 Linit ask for removal of upstart
15:23 dukeznyal> you helped my, i 've finished sarge to etch fai migration
15:23 Linno probvlem.
15:23 dukezLin> so remove upstart from the list !
15:23 Linsysvinit upstart-
15:23 Linit's already
15:24 dukezno
15:24 dukezok
15:24 dukeztry one time with sysvinit
15:24 dukezthe other time with upstart
15:24 dukezbut if upstart is part of the Ubuntuu bootstrap install, jsute remove sysvinit
15:24 dukezjust*
15:26 LinI really dunno.
15:26 Linubuntu is so weird 2 me
15:26 Linits a good desktop
15:26 Linbut it has some  weird configurations
15:27 Linit has no keymap do be loaded but how can it change the keymap? loadkeys simply doesn't work.  There is some setupcon without any man page...
15:27 Lindamn weird
15:27 dukezLin> try to remove sysvinit, rerun make-fai-nfsroot but with "make-fai-nfsroot -v > /tmp/log.txt 2>&1"
15:27 Linok
15:28 Lindukez:
15:29 Linif you want to see interactively ;-)
15:29 dukez^^
15:29 dukezok
15:29 dukezJust look
15:29 dukezupstart is part of debootstrap
15:29 Linim looking already..
15:29 dukezSo upstart is needed in the base system
15:29 Linyes it is
15:29 dukezso revert the change
15:30 dukezjust remove the package conflicting with upstart from the NFSROOT list
15:30 Linshould I keep upstart.. and remove sysvinit
15:30 dukezyes
15:30 Linok
15:30 dukezi think
15:30 Lindone already
15:30 dukezbut i ma not sure
15:30 Lintrying.. ;-)
15:30 Linin 15 minutes we will know ;-)
15:30 dukezk
15:30 dukezi going out for a cigaret
15:31 Linand me 4 a coffe
15:31 Lin;-)
Nick change: \sh -> \sh_away
15:48 dukezLin> thins seems better
15:49 dukezLin> You just have a problem with perl packages :(
15:49 Linexactly
15:49 dukezlook for perl-modules and libnet-perl conflict
15:49 dukezLin> but i think your NFSROOT is now workable
15:49 Lini looking EXACTLY this right now
15:49 LinI wil lremove libnet as prereq.. what uses libnet?
15:49 Linperl-modules should fullfill this
15:50 dukezLin> libnet-perl provides modules like Net::SMTP
15:50 Lini know
15:50 dukezLin> I think.... i don't know perl-modules packages :)
15:50 Linperl-modules should be a ubuntu-thing to put everything in the same bag
15:51 Linyes it is
15:51 Linit conflits with A LOT of perl modules
15:51 dukezLin> remove perl-modules
15:51 dukezLin> i never seen it :)
15:51 LinI cannot
15:51 Linperl need perl-modules
15:51 Linon debian
15:52 Linon ubuntu
15:52 dukezLin> ok
15:52 dukezLin> don't u mix repository ?
15:52 dukezLin> remove libnet-perl so ..
15:52 LinI will do
15:52 dukezbut before, give a try to your new NFSROOT
15:52 dukez:)
15:52 Lin;-)
15:53 Linok
15:54 LinI think that its a problem in module dependencies.. perl should not depend of perl-modules. makes no sense
15:55 Linlibnet-perl depends perl depends perl-modules conflics libnet-perl
15:55 Linmakes no sense
15:59 dukez^^
16:00 dukezSry for the troll but i hate Ubuntuu, because in my opinion, it hurt the debian project
16:00 dukezSo ....
16:00 Lindukez: i dont like it SO.
16:00 Linyes it hurts the debian project
16:00 Linbut it aims 4 something that there isn't on debian, a good desktop
16:01 Linno matter how you try.. debian is focused on administrations and servers
16:01 dukezLin> lets try not to troll this forum with this subjet Lin :)
16:01 Linis the better way to manage servers. has a damn good package. and unbeliveable tools (as fai)
16:02 Linbut lacks something...
16:02 Linexample..
16:02 Lindid you saw the latest ubuntu (feisty)?
16:02 Linwhen you try to play a audio file with a non existent coded. It ask you for instalation. and installs it 4 u
16:02 dukezLin> no :(, i'll never install ubuntuu on my desktop, i use Debian SID :)
16:02 Linjust works.
16:02 dukezLin> the NFSroot ?
16:02 Linthis is a ubuntu effort.
16:03 Linisn't something BIG.
16:03 Linbut users LOVE this.. try to ask a user to open synaptic (apt/aptitude/dselect) and install a codec.
16:03 Linadd a repository o anything else.
16:03 LinI know.. its easy.. but users don't think like that
16:04 dukezLin> the more you use GUI or automated things, the less u understand what your are doing
16:04 dukezLin> and if things go wrong you are dependend from the GUI or the automation
16:05 Linbut ubuntu has the same flaws as fedora / mandriva.. it insert too much new things in every package. it create new bugs.
16:05 Lindukez: as a sysadmin for more than 10 years I cont change my CLI + Scritps + automation for anything.
16:05 Linbut users are users.
16:05 Linbut it uses debian packages.
16:05 dukezLin> yes, users are too much used to Windows ....
16:06 Linyes. then I see ubuntu with good eyes
16:06 LinI use ubuntu on my dektop.. but server in anything else.
16:06 Linbut debian in ...
16:06 dukezLin> but ubuntuu release an ubuntuu server flavoured version
16:07 dukezLin> what a shame !
16:07 Linshame 4 use ubuntu desktop?
16:07 Lin;-)
16:08 Lindukez: yeah.. I think that ubuntu server version should not exist
16:08 Lindukez: they should stay on desktop.
16:08 Lindukez: BUT, there is something that I missing on system side..
16:08 Linsomething as a new init. I know.. init is stable.. but 30 years :-)
16:08 dukezLin> in my opinion, besides making a whole new distrib, the "community" may have worked on a linked stable repository project
16:09 dukezLin> with End-users oriented software
16:09 Lindukez: I know.. but this effort never was created.
16:09 dukezsimply
16:09 Linbut not end-users soft
16:09 Linnot only.
16:09 Linnew features focused on users as that explained above
16:09 dukezk
16:10 dukezLin>  did you try your new nfsroto ?.
