Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Ubiquity runs X with tcp ports enabled during the non-live environment install (i.e. selecting "Install Ubuntu" from the syslinux boot prompt). From tty1 this can be seen by doing:

$ sudo netstat -tanp
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 1825/X

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.1.0

ubiquity (2.1.0) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Run X with -nolisten tcp (LP: #462394).
  * Make sure we never try to install onto the live filesystem.
  * Only print the filenames being blacklisted if in debug mode.
  * Provide human readable sizes in the partitions-too-small warning
    (LP: #298974).
  * Mark the "Installation Complete" window as always on top
    (LP: #462178).
  * Fixes from Pychecker for the KDE frontend (kde_ui):
    - Don't import datetime or math. The timezone code is in a separate
      module now.
    - Remove some unused variables.
    - Don't assign to a variable that's going to be immediately discarded.
  * Signal to GTK+ when using a right-to-left language, so that it
    composes the interface from right to left (LP: #222845).
  * Signal to the slideshow when the installer is using a right-to-left
    language (LP: #446989).
  * Set SUDO_UID and SUDO_GID in ubiquity-dm so ubiquity knows what user
    to drop privileges to (LP: #422254).
  * Do not try to configure networking in oem-config (LP: #471498).
  * Make migration-assistant import failures non-fatal to the overall
  * pkgsel now provides a debconf question to avoid warning the end user
    when the language packs could not be installed (LP: #471553).
  * Make sure a device exists as part of the grub target device
  * Allow the user to retry grub installation with a different device on
  * Automatic update of included source packages: apt-setup
    1:0.42ubuntu1, choose-mirror 2.29ubuntu2, clock-setup 0.100ubuntu1,
    debian-installer-utils 1.71ubuntu1, grub-installer 1.47ubuntu1, hw-
    detect 1.73ubuntu1, netcfg 1.51ubuntu1, partman-base 135ubuntu1,
    tzsetup 1:0.26ubuntu1, user-setup 1.28ubuntu1.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add a debian/rules target to run pychecker. I've fixed several warnings,
    but there are still several left so this is not yet enabled by default.
  * Fix debconf frontend:
    - Start oem-config on stopping rc, as well as when starting display
    - Add some missing imports (ubiquity.frontend.base.Controller,
      ubiquity.plugin.Plugin, ubiquity.i18n, signal,
    - If there's a containing debconf frontend, talk to it rather than using
    - Set a controller in the language plugin.
    - Use spaces rather than ${!TAB} in localechooser when using the debconf
      frontend, since debconf doesn't support the latter yet.
    - Don't handle user-setup preseeding for the debconf frontend.
    - Remove unused progress_position handling.
    - Fix exception names in ubi-network and ubi-tasks.
  * Require Python 2.5, so we can now use hashlib rather than md5 and avoid
    a slew of warnings.
  * Add an intro message noting that we're alpha again.
