View Full Version : [ubuntu] Long pause during install after authenticating mirror

October 5th, 2011, 11:04 PM
I'm encountering a long pause during unattended (preseeded) install of lucid server via pxe. The install eventually works, but appears to just sit there for 20 or 30 minutes after it authenticates the mirror.

See attachment for syslog snippet...

Anybody else run into this before? Is something waiting to timeout? I'm thinking it has something to do with the "resolver (somepackage): packages doesn't exist" lines, but I'm not sure what to make of it.

BTW, first post, so please be kind.

Hi, same problem here. With lucid only. No found any related bug. How it is possible? Sounds weird. Any help?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

Did either of you ever come accross a solution to this problem?

I believe I'm having the same problem with automated installation, the installer debug output looks like it simply stops after validation of apt sources, then continues after between 3 and 5 minutes.

There is nothing in the standard or debug syslog to indicate errors of any kind.

Any insight you've come across in the last few months would be v helpful.
