Support amd64+kassel in bionic

Bug #1850674 reported by Łukasz Zemczak on 2019-10-30

livecd-rootfs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


In eoan+ we currently enable building the amd64+kassel family of images for core18. Since we should be building core18 via bionic, this support needs to be backported.

[Test Case]

Build the kassel ubuntu-core image using bionic and make sure it builds successfully.

[Regression Potential]

Other core18 images might fail to build or not have the proper arguments passed, but that would be easily visible.

Ran a test build of amd64+kassel on a livefs builder for bionic (with proposed enabled):

All looks good. From the logs I see that the right extra snaps are installed, as we want for the kassel model.

Note: we will still need to modify cdimage to add the kassel device there to the default arches built. But that's a separate change.

This bug was fixed in the package livecd-rootfs - 2.525.33

livecd-rootfs (2.525.33) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Add support for the 'kassel' subflavor of UC18 images. (LP: #1850674)

livecd-rootfs (2.525.32) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Fix a terrible typo in auto/build that causes all core18 builds to fail on
    this series (LP: #1849343).
  * Backport 999-ubuntu-image-customization.chroot to have a common place for
    our cloud-init datasource. Add some modifications on top to make sure the
    legacy raspi2 configuration stays the same (LP: #1849472).
  * Backport enabling of adding extra snaps to ubuntu-core images via the
    EXTRA_SNAPS environment (LP: #1849491).
