|0005878||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2019-12-05 22:58||2020-02-04 15:43|
|Priority||high||Severity||major||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2020.2|
|Summary||0005878: During live boot debian-installer-launcher fails to run|
|Description||Before 2019.4 debian-installer-launcher ran fine and was used to create the btrfs walkthrough. It currently fails making the btrfs walkthrough not possible.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Boot into live boot mode|
root@kali:~# apt install -y debian-installer-launcher
no suitable d-i ignited image found, aborting.
umount: /lib/live/installer: no mount point specified
Do you have the issue with the 2019.4 live ISO or newer ISO where the installer was broken?
Why does the btrfs tutorial require debian-installer-launcher ? It would be better if it were adapted to be run in the regular installer. I believe that you should be able to complete the manual steps in the console available in CTRL+ALT+F2.
FTR debian-installer-launcher is not really maintained and we dropped it from the live ISO a long time ago due to this and I would prefer if we did not rely on it.
||I have had the issue on 2019.4 live ISO and newer. I dont fully understand the reasons that re4son chose to use live boot, however I do remember he ran into issues with the regular installer. This will have to be looked into if it can be adapted|
This has been fixed in debian-installer-launcher 37 that I just uploaded to Debian. It will be available in Kali in a few days.
The revelant part of the changes I made are those: https://salsa.debian.org/installer-team/debian-installer-launcher/commit/99e5d7a8f1e1015882c125e5b954d98270f816b1
