Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Testing Desktop installation from 20091015 (i386), on a fakeraid. Everything goes fine until grub is going to be installed, then ubiquity just dies (silently).

At this point /target/boot/grub is empty.

  * Always use GRUB Legacy when /boot is on a multipath device.
  * If /boot is on SATA RAID or multipath, don't ask a question to which
    there's only one acceptable answer and the other causes grub-installer
    to fall over (LP: #452118).

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Check to see whether X crashed or ubiquity crashed before attempting
    to bail into the noninteractive frontend from only-ubiquity mode
    (LP: #444901).
  * Wrap the format warning label while working around GTK+ label layout
    problems (LP: #364617).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Rewrite X_LOADTEMPLATEFILE commands in case they refer to template files
    in the /target chroot (LP: #452118).
  * Install -generic-pae kernels if necessary; this requires some custom
    hacks since -generic-pae isn't in the live filesystem (LP: #413135).
  * Don't do kernel installation/removal in oem-config.
  * Skip partition_too_small check during Wubi installs, as Wubi does some
    of its own checks and the delay imposed by this check looks particularly
    weird in Wubi. This may or may not be the cause of apparent hangs
    towards the end of partitioning, but I suspect that it will at least get
    rid of some conflated reports and make testing quicker.
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: clock-setup 0.98ubuntu3,
    flash-kernel 2.13ubuntu13, grub-installer 1.43ubuntu6, partman-auto
    89ubuntu2, partman-target 64ubuntu4.

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Mythbuntu: Don't allow "removing" LIRC as it's not supported with install.

  [ Roman Shtylman ]
  * Fixed India timezone map (LP: #453009)

  [ Michael Casadevall ]
  * Added support for partman-uboot in ubiquity (LP: #455713)

While installing Ubuntu 9.10 RC on my Nvidia Fakeraid (Raid 1), grub installation failed with an error without any reason ( like "grub installation failed"). Afterwards the Live Desktop was booted.. /#rootdisk#/boot/grub was empty and thus booting from harddisk fails with "Error 15".

I hope this can be fixed until release - do you need more debugging information?
