preseed file, but there is one buggy problem about preseed mirror setting.
The symptom here is installing process got stuck.
So I track down the log file, and find out the real problem, the installation is looking for a file that's not there.
This is just one of them, another pops up if I faked this file.
This all happened during preseed, so I believe
preseed has something to do with this.
ubuntu preseed mirror and find this post saying:
# If you select ftp, the mirror/country string does not need to be set. #d-i mirror/protocol string ftp d-i mirror/country string manual d-i mirror/http/hostname string archive.ubuntu.com d-i mirror/http/directory string /ubuntu d-i mirror/http/proxy string # Alternatively: by default, the installer uses CC.archive.ubuntu.com where # CC is the ISO-3166-2 code for the selected country. You can preseed this # so that it does so without asking. #d-i mirror/http/mirror select CC.archive.ubuntu.com # Suite to install. #d-i mirror/suite string lucid # Suite to use for loading installer components (optional). #d-i mirror/udeb/suite string lucid # Components to use for loading installer components (optional). #d-i mirror/udeb/components multiselect main, restricted
I wonder the difference between
d-i mirror/http/hostname and
d-i mirror/http/mirror, I mean they all specify a mirror, right?
In my preseed file, this is no
d-i mirror/http/mirror, and
d-i mirror/http/hostname points to my own repo as you might notice in the previous image.
Here is my question:
- Does preseed fetches file/resource from internet, if I use local repo?
- Why it's looking for file that's not even there?
This has bothered for quite time, many thanks in advance to anyone who might give any help.
