Re: BeagleBone Black apt oddness

Hi all,

After manually grabbing strace ( deb ) and installing, it pointed to the /var/lib/apt/list files.  I blew them away and reran apt to update.  Second time around did the trick.

A bit weird id say, but it happens, thanks for the responses.

I run Deb on both Beaglebone / board and Pandaboard, for the best part its always been plain sailing so this one did surprise me.  If at anytime anything needs tested on hardware just drop me a mail.

Thanks again

Your image contains SSH private keys, which means that everyone can do
MITM attacks against connections to machines running your image. It
also contains the dbus machine identifier and other machine-specific
things that should not be duplicated between instances.

In Debian we generally suggest people use d-i or debootstrap, for this
reason. Debian install methods don't yet support generating generic
images that can be installed on any host. Until this is solved I would
strongly suggest you point people at a script that runs debootstrap

At the very least you should generate multiple images, compare them,
remove the differing files and create a script that runs on first boot
to generate these files. Alternately, use debootstrap --foreign and
rely on how it runs all the postinst scripts on first boot.

Is this code upstreamed yet? It would be great to be able to switch to
armmp more.
