Bug Description

Binary package hint: casper

Using the 'install_nosplash' option at the ps3-kboot prompt (because usplash needs to be disabled see bug #285218), screen clear and within seconds I'm dropped to "initramfs" busy box prompt and the install does not proceed. Error messages output are (full debug enabled log attached):

/init: line 1: cannot open /dev/sr0: no such file
/init: line 1: cannot open /dev/sr0: no such file
mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: No such device
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

CD image taken from Intrepid daily build 2008-10-24 (just after the 'rc' milestone).

Marking with 'medium' importance - although this is a major showstopper for the desktop CD it's not a showstopper for Intrepid on PS3 as we do have a working alternate CD.

Changed in ubuntu-ps3-port:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Confirmed
Changed in casper:
status: New → Confirmed

Not sure whether it's worth adding a release note for this or not as the desktop CD will simply not be published (alternate will). Still here's my suggested text:

"The PS3 'desktop' install CD flavour will not be published for Intrepid because it's broken. However the alternate installer works fine."

Doesn't do any harm :)
