SRU: progress bar oddities break creation of diskless clients

Bug #221921 reported by laga on 2008-04-25

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mythbuntu-control-centre

When creating a diskless image in the Control Centre, the progress bar finishes before ltsp-build-client run in the background is finished. The usually will usually exit the control centre before ltsp-build-client has finished, resulting in unbootable clients. This leads to lots of questions in the Mythbuntu forums, which makes me sad.

This upload should have gone in before Archives were hard frozen, but it didn't make it so we need an SRU now. There's no risk for regression as it only touches the progress bar code.

Debdiff will be attached soon.

Debdiff attached. You'll notice another changelog entry about the addition of a MCC_DEBUG variable - having this is essential for any debugging and certainly doesn't hurt.

(1) Target should be hardy-proposed, not hardy, since this is now a SRU
(2) Version number should be either 0.27-0ubuntu1.1 or 0.28-0ubuntu1~hardy1 to prevent clashing with Intrepid.

Please revise your debdiff and set back to New

BTW, sorry for the reject/unreject/accept for 0.28-0ubuntu1~hardy1. There were two uploads in the queue, and first I rejected the 'wrong' one.

Tested it and determined some oddities with respect to Medibuntu-packages... They were not included (an error saying they could not be authenticated) although I checked the "allow unsigned packages" checkbox beforehand.

laga provided an updated .deb to me, which then worked and which therefore should replace the one still in hardy-proposed.

I'm providing a new debdiff for a ~hardy2 upload. I've found some issues (thanks Verzweifler!):

* Unauthenticated packages wouldn't install even if the "allow unsigned packages" checkbox was checked.
* There was no feedback whether the diskless image was built successfully or not. Now the user will see an error message if ltsp-build-client failed.

The debdiff is meant to apply on top of the ~hardy1 package which is already in hardy-proposed. It is not necessary to invoke the get-orig-source rule, all changes are supposed to be in the .diff.gz and will eventually end up in the orig.tar.gz for intrepid.

I'll attach a third debdiff in a few minutes. This will fix ~hardy2 to include a reference to this bug report in the changelog. I can't avoid the string change, but it doesn't matter because that part of the package hasn't been localied yet. Translations only apply to the glade files (of course, that's a bad thing, but nothing I can fix now).

Yes, I do want ~hardy2 to supersede ~hardy1. ~hardy1 doesn't need to go to hardy-updates first.

The only change is the addition of the bug number, so this should be quick to review. This debdiff is meant to apply on top of ~hardy1 from hardy-proposed.

Has anyone confirmed that diskless client creation works now with the latest version in the archive?

Is this something that could be tested using the 8.04.1 candidate images (

Yes: I just confirmed that it works now.

copied to hardy-updates and to intrepid, thanks.
