Ubuntu 11.10 luks+lvm+btrfs install fail
I try my standard setup since Natty (sorry for my bed English):
/boot 150Mb as ext3
LUKS as a PV
lv-home (all the free space)
At a hardware level I have tried various machine with both SSD (Intel X-25M
160Gb, OCZ Vertex 3 60Gb) and some platter disk.
Step to reproduce: download alternate-amd64 install cd, put onto a usb stick,
boot with it and install (loaded "donwload installer, parted and squashfs").
Partition as described above and before install the base system open a shell
(Alt+F2, <enter>) and remount both root and home with, if you are on an SSD:
mount -o remount,
or if you are on a platter disk use:
mount -o remount,compress /dev/mapper/...
Now install the base system.
If you go back to the shell and take a look at /var/log/syslog:
grep "No space left" /var/log/syslog
you'll see that linux-headers-
due to "No space left on device"; of course if you take a look a df you'll
see you have all the space you need... Also if you put a static df with -i
support you'll see that you aren't run out of inodes...
Installer continue without complain to user setup and mirror setup and
finally fail when try to install the rest of the system.
Choose linux-image-generic instead of linux-generic doesn't matter, same
choose not to download installer and not to load squashfs.
From /var/log/syslog (italian localisation, sorry):
Oct 13 13:38:13 in-target: Estrazione di linux-headers-
Oct 13 13:38:29 in-target: dpkg: errore nell'elaborare /media/
Oct 13 13:38:29 in-target: impossibile installare la nuova versione di "/usr/src/
Oct 13 13:38:29 in-target: No apport report written because the error message indicates a disk full error
Full log attached, no idea on how to circumvent.
