Bug Description

Binary package hint: fai-quickstart

Broken dependency in fai-quickstart (using PPA):

root@mpk-fai32:~# apt-get install fai-quickstart
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  fai-quickstart: Depends: mkisofs but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

root@mpk-fai32:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb gutsy main universe
deb gutsy main universe

workaround: add gutsy/multiverse to your sources.list

solution: replace dependency on mkisofs with alternative dependency "mkisofs | genisoimage"

Thanks siretart.

Question: What is the criteria for deciding whether this belongs in universe or multiverse? I'm afraid I don't know how that decision is made.

This bug was fixed in the package fai - 3.2.4+svn4837-0ubuntu2

fai (3.2.4+svn4837-0ubuntu2) hardy; urgency=low

  * upload to hardy

fai (3.2.4+svn4837-0ubuntu2~ppa3) hardy; urgency=low

  * simple config GRUB/10-setup: add to kernel-img.conf postinst and postrm
    hook settings that run update-grub. Without them, grub's menu.lst is not
    updated on linux image installation/removal.

fai (3.2.4+svn4837-0ubuntu2~ppa2) hardy; urgency=low

  * don't install menu.lst and GRUB postinst script at all in the binary
    package by removing them in the clean rule of debian/rules
  * remove console-data support, show how to preseed console-setup in the
    example class GERMAN. (LP: #207756)

fai (3.2.4+svn4837-0ubuntu2~ppa1) hardy; urgency=low

  [ Christian Meier ]
  * bin/fai, lib/get-config-dir-nfs: always use -n option in romountopt to
    prevent accessing /etc/mtab in read-only environment
    (closes: LP: #207582)
  * fix grub example (closes LP: #187659)
    * remove menu.lst of examples
    * move the postinst script of menu.lst to
      examples/simple/scripts/GRUB/10-setup and modify it to let update-grub
      do the configuration of menu.lst
  * workaround for not correctly working unionfs over nfs
    * create nfshooks (/etc/fai/10-unionfs-workaround) that delete certain
      files in nfsroot that will be created automatically through fai scripts.
      (LP: #197006)
  * add ghostscript to build dependencies
  * don't fail build if there are no postinst scripts in the 'simple-example'
    configuration space

  [ Reinhard Tartler ]
  * add genisofs alternative to mkisofs in fai-server and fai-quickstart
    packages (LP: #156836)
