Ubuntu 8.04 and systemimager
 
Ok I have been trying to setup systemimager on Ubuntu 8.04 for about a week using info off the internet. Needless to say Im pretty patient but cannot get it installed leave alone working .

Is there any guide that works that would make this easier ? I have been through 12 server installs after experimenting with various different deb,tar,gz files. i have had dependencies missing and not installing properly , I have forced installs of deb files in an effort to give the stupid program its dependencies and ended up with trashed ubuntu server installs and had to start from scratch. :mad:

Any chance of a Perfect systemimage server walkthough for people like me ? ( judging from the web there are plenty of us :O ) :o

I'd even change to a different distro to get it working , however i do need to backup feisty fawn servers to it so ubuntu was the natural choice for the systemimager server ! :rolleyes:

thanks

so i fixed that then i tried the install again and it failed on dependencies , so i forced install on dependantcies and tried install again.

this is what happened last time i used the walk through that you have posted , it keeps going around in circles .

:confused:

So after a bit more jerking around we decided to do the entire setup just as you had done on debian.

So we spent the afternoon downloading and installing debian on the server , this is far as we got using the systemimager walkthrough install :-

any idea where we go from here ? :mad:

Seems nothing wants to cooperate :(

I think I'll write new SystemImager tutorials. :)

cortexx 29th October 2008 14:44

That would be very appreciated .

Anything that prevents more fist marks in the front of the server rack and the broken distro cd's on the floor in the server room would be very welcome.

:D
