    [SOLVED] Mythbuntu 7.10 installer crashed

    Hi

    I am having trouble getting Mythbuntu installed.
    I have read the other threads that discuss a similar error but none of them have any specific details about how they overcame the problem.

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/bin/ubiquity", line 212, in <module>
    main()
    File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/bin/ubiquity", line 207, in main
    install(args[0])
    File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/bin/ubiquity", line 65, in install
    ret = wizard.run()
    File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/frontend/mythbuntu_ui.py", line 252, in run
    self.progress_loop()
    File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/frontend/mythbuntu_ui.py", line 330, in progress_loop
    (ret, realtb))
    RuntimeError: Install failed with exit code 1
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/ubiquity/mythbuntu_install.py", line 288, in <module>
    install.run()
    File "/usr/share/ubiquity/mythbuntu_install.py", line 100, in run
    self.configure_mythbuntu()
    File "/usr/share/ubiquity/mythbuntu_install.py", line 179, in configure_mythbuntu
    raise InstallStepError("MythbuntuApply Debconf Xfer failed with code %d" % ret)
    InstallStepError: MythbuntuApply Debconf Xfer failed with code 1
    This happens about 85% of the way through the install.
    I have tried advanced also, it gets further but crashes while setting up the remote (windows media center) about 95% into the install. I tried the advanced again, without setting up the remote and it failed at 85% too.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Mythbuntu 7.10 installer crashed

    Most common cause is a password using invalid characters for MySQL or mythweb. Try avoiding non alpha-numeric (including spaces) characters.

    If that wasn't it, then post all the options you chose during install.

    Re: Mythbuntu 7.10 installer crashed

    My password for mysql contained only alpha-numeric characters.

    I have tried de-selecting all options including all the modules and themes, with the exception of SSH and SMB and it still crashes.

    I should note I am using the XFS filesystem for my home partition. I mentioned this as I noted this warning;
    Jan 20 13:50:13 ubuntu mythbuntu: df: Warning: cannot read table of mounted file systems: No such file or directory
    Not sure if that is significant or not.

    Re: Mythbuntu 7.10 installer crashed

    Looks like the home partition was not wiped out before hand. Remove ~/.config and ~/.mythtv in that partition before starting. Also, please file a bug regarding this so that those files can be checked for in the future.

    Removed offending directories, install got past the 83% but crashed again setting up my remote.
    Error details:

    raise InstallStepError("Remote Control Configuration failed with code %d" % ret)
    InstallStepError: Remote Control Configuration failed with code 1

    I notice in my syslog the following lines;
    Jan 21 01:39:53 ubuntu ubiquity: cp: cannot create regular file `/target/home/graham/.lircrc'
    Jan 21 01:39:53 ubuntu ubiquity: : No such file or directory
    Going to remove the offending file and the above-mentioned directories and try again.

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Mythbuntu 7.10 installer crashed

    Removing the config files worked. Mythbuntu is now up and running.
