    DRBL and UBUNTU SERVER 8.04 don't work !!

    I have downloaded fresh installs of Hardy 8.04 server and workstation.... followed the instructions and DRBL does not work with Hardy. The only way I can get DRBL and CLonezilla working is on an old Gutsy install- where DRBL and clonezilla work fine for about a week then stop.

    I had Hardy working with DRBL earlier in the year but it stopped working after one update or another( I made the mistake of allowing Hardy to update) and any reinstalls failed on DRBL install while running /opt/drbl/sbin/drblsrv -i stating the following before terminating the program:

    Package linux-image-2.6.24-20-386 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package linux-image-2.6.24-20-386 has no installation candidate
    linux-image-2.6.24-20-386 can NOT be downloaded!!! Something went wrong!
    Maybe you should check /etc/sources.list or remove the unnecessary kernel block
    in /var/lib/dpkg/status so that apt-cache pkgnames linux-image can
    get the downloadable kernel! Then try to run this program again.
    Program terminated!!!



    Anyway, I have been trying to resolve this ... finally going back to gutsy install ( not updating) and running old installer of DRBL - which all works....... but now, after following install instructions repeatedly I can say there is a definite bug- and that 8.04 and current DRBL/CLonezilla are not happy together. Too bad! When they work together it rocks!

    Sad.

    HAPPY!!!

    I should now change my title to DRBL and Ubuntu server 8.04 WORK!!

    I am so impressed- who ever performed the work and made the changes over night please take a bow.

    Issues at the big $$$$ software companies never get resolved this quickly!!

    Anyway, without fanfare it appears the DRBL installer has been updated to address the issue I was citing.

    A new option has been added to choose the kernel during the install and it appears to be fixed.

    I am finishing the install as I type.

    Again, wow!!!!

    ..... and thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have the same issue but still can not install. I have used both the following install commands

    ./drblsrv -i -o
    and
    ./drblsrv --install --client_kernel_from

    but I still get the same error.

    How do you get around this issue

    Thanks

    I solved this by adding the following to my /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy-proposed main restricted universe multiverse

    deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
