    Resolved: Ubuntu Kickstart and the corrupt Packages message

    Hi,

    I manually Resolved this problem
    Just create a file named Packages in that particular directory

    touch /var/www/ubuntu12.04/dists/precise/restricted/binary-i386/Packages

    Hi,

    I have the same problem...

    Where did you place "touch ...." in your ks.cfg ? in the %post ?

    You didn't mount an ISO file ?

    Thanks a lot

    I'm not the person who posted the resolution, but Im 99.9% sure he meant that you should use the 'touch' command to create an empty file called 'Packages'. The same effect would be done if you navigated to the correct directory, and used the command 'vi Packages' and then just saved and quit without writing anything. If you are using a GUI, then you could just right click in the directory and 'create new document' and name it Packages.

    I hope that helps,
    Stu
