Thanks. That does narrow it down a little bit, but not quite far enough,
especially as the debug output from the isinstallable script seems to
Could you do one more run and then with the following changes. Using logger
should give more exact timing info ('set -x' output gets delayed).
In /var/lib/dpkg/info/pkgsel.postinst (bottom part):
+logger -t debug "pkgsel: starting cleanup"
if ! cleanup; then
log "cleanup failed"
db_progress STEP 2
if [ -x /target/usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update ]; then
+ logger -t debug "pkgsel: running scrollkeeper-update"
log-output -t pkgsel chroot /target scrollkeeper-update -q || true
if [ -x /target/usr/bin/fc-cache ]; then
+ logger -t debug "pkgsel: running fc-cache"
chroot /target fc-cache -f -v >/target/var/log/fontconfig.log 2>&1 \
+logger -t debug "pkgsel: cleanup done"
db_progress STEP 3
+logger -t debug "pkgsel: done"
In /var/lib/dpkg/info/grub-installer.isinstallable (just below functions):
+logger -t debug "grub: detecting arch"
+logger -t debug "grub: arch is $ARCH"
