Re: simple-cdd bzr working with etch again

ok, i've applied patches from gustavo franco and raphael hertzog, with a
few additional fixes and modifications, and i think simple-cdd is
finally working with etch again. i used both debian-cd 3.0.0 in etch,
and from svn, and seemed to work fine with either.

Hi Vagrant,

The simple-cdd/profiles (into simple-cdd-profiles udeb) is still
broken into my bzr branch. Have you solved the problem? How? FYI, if i
don't pass simple-cdd/profiles=profile before installer boot it hangs
during simple-cdd-profiles udeb installation, probably during the way
we handle debconf. Thoughts?

thanks to raphael hertzog and gustavo franco for the patches which got
simple-cdd back on track!


so, anyone want to sponsor an upload to debian, lest i need to rename it

it's still a little rough around the edges, but getting into debian
would get it a little more exposure, somewhere to track bugs, and then
CDDs could actually use it entirely within debian to make basic CDD CDs.

I agree, but i prefer to prepare a Sacix Sagui (the next release) beta
first. This way we can say for sure that multiple profiles and
postinst works. Everything else looks ok to me.

try it out and let me know what you think:


at this point, it basically works and i would say is feature complete,
but i'd like to make some of the ideas more consistant, and do some code
cleanup(if not rewrite in python), network boot installs, and improve
the documentation... and, well, there's always more to do...

I would like to rewrite Simple-CDD in Python during Lenny development
cycle. I'm not sure how much time i'll have for this, only time will
tell what's coming. I think that i should write down what Simple-CDD
is doing and how it's doing and we could at least do what was done
with ltsp shell script code (ltsp-build-client).

I like the mirror-tools/ thing and hate they way we install additional
packages through extra stuff, maybe we could integrate the profiles
with tasksel in a transparent manner for the users.
