ubiquity crashed with IndexError in child()

Bug #118967 reported by Luka Renko on 2007-06-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

SW: Kubuntu Tribe1 candidate (20070606.1)
HW: HP nw8240 laptop

Selected manual partitioning, got message that ubiquity crashed, selected Report problem and then apport-qt crashed (see bug 118965).

The funny thing is that ubiquity did not crash at all and I could continue with partitioning. I will try to finish installation and report back if it succeeded.

Reassigned to myself. I'm going to see if I can figure out what's causing this. It doesn't appear to be happening in the gtk-ui.

I did not have any problems when installing the same CD on my desktop and using manual partitioning. I suspect the bug may be related to partition layout of specific system.

Could you reproduce this with ubiquity --debug and post /var/log/syslog and /var/log/partman again, please? I think the extra debugging in the partman component may help here.

Luka Renko (lure) wrote :

OK, I have reproduced this with --debug
Note: I have only run ubiquity until it reported problem and did not finish the install (aborted in partitioning page).

partman log file

Oh, er, whoops. I forgot to say - could you attach /var/log/installer/debug too? Sorry!

Reproduced and here is debug file.

ubiquity (1.5.3) gutsy; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Drop into pdb.post_mortem on non-SyntaxError exceptions if the --pdb
    option is given and ubiquity is running from a terminal.
  * Work around hang on PS3 by stopping various non-essential processes
    first (LP: #106683).

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Set the partition model after populating it in the KDE UI
    (LP: #118967).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: console-setup
    1.16ubuntu4, kboot-installer 0.0.1ubuntu3, partman-newworld
