choose mirror failed with dapper current netinstall

Bug #43822 reported by Djoume Salvetti on 2006-05-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
choose-mirror (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

Good Day,

breezy netinstall (TFTP) works fine.

I have download

and extract it in the tftpd root directory.

Target computer boot fine, I choose server installation mode, select language and keyboard (french), DHCP works fine and then I've got an error message : An installation step failed [...] The failing step is : choose a mirror of the Ubuntu archive.

In the logs I found :
Configuring 'choose-mirror' failed with error code 134.

Restarting choose-mirror doesn't solved the problem.

Same problem If I don't choose server at boot.

I'd be happy to provide more info or test something if it could help.

Please attach the full /var/log/syslog file to this bug. You can extract it from the running installer by going back to the installer main menu and selecting "save debug logs".

Changed in debian-installer:
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info

The installation failed as previously describe, I have restart once the choose mirror step and then save the log

Changed in choose-mirror:
status: Needs Info → Confirmed

Problem is that /bin/choose-mirror tries to fetch the Release file from a remote mirror location. (This behavior is hard-coded)

I work with preseed files, netinstall over tftp-hpa, apache2 (own repository, with month freezes) and in spite of the fact that I give the mirror in the preseed file, choose-mirror tries elsewhere :

d-i mirror/http/hostname string
d-i mirror/http/directory string /ubuntu
d-i mirror/suite string dapper

d-i mirror/http/proxy string

d-i clock-setup/utc boolean true

d-i time/zone string Europe/Zurich

d-i apt-setup/security_host

d-i apt-setup/local0/repository string http:/ dapper main

d-i pkgsel/install-pattern ~t^ubuntu-standard$

d-i finish-install/reboot_in_progress note
