suite->codename mapping operation sometimes times out on network access

Bug #32336 reported by Miguel Ruiz on 2006-02-21
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
choose-mirror (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I selected to install Flight 4 in Server mode (I haven't problems with default installer). I did the following steps:

1. Select the option "Install a server".
2. Choose language: "Spanish".
3. Choose location/country: "Chile".
4. Installer select my keyboard layout: "Latinoamericano".
5. Detecting Hardware: ok
6. Loading Modules: ok
7. Analyzing cdrom: ok
8. Loading additional components: ok
9. Detecting network hardware: ok
10. Configuring network with DHCP: ok
11. Select system's name: ok
12. Testing ubuntu replica: error!

After this I can't continue with the install.

I add a screenshot.

I added an screenshot about this problem.

Could you please extract /var/log/syslog from the installer (use "Guardar los registros de depuración" or "Save debug logs" from the installer's main menu) and attach it to this bug?

First time that I use this tool (Save debug logs) and I think it's wonderful!


Thanks. It's timing out trying to talk to the network to get the release codename. I need to make choose-mirror a bit more intelligent here.

You are welcome!

Installer (choose-mirror) works fine in "default" installation. Why we have problems with server install mode?

Greetings from Chile
