I'm not sure how to get the OEM install mode working with my Ubuntu remaster. I'm using Remastersys to make the remastered Ubuntu 10.04 distro and I don't know how to make sure OEMs can use it. I have tried running sudo oem-config-prepare after installing the remaster (with oem-config, oem-config-gtk, oem-config-remaster and oem-config-debconf installed from Synaptic) in a new account called "oem" with the password also "oem". It tells me that I have to restart to show the system setup. So I did that, but it would not start into it. I pressed the Escape key at Plymouth to view the bootup in verbose mode and it told me this:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/ubiquity-dm", line 476, in <module> dm = DM(vt, display, username) File "/usr/bin/ubiquity-dm", line 78, in __init__ self.uid, self.gid = pwd.getpwnam(self.username)[2:4] KeyError: 'getpwnam(): name not found: live'
multiple times and that I could make a new account from the boot prompt. I attempted to do this but it was choppy and my key presses didn't appear to do anything until I pressed Enter when it displayed only some of the key presses so setting up an account from the boot prompt was futile. I have also tried setting the live username to "oem" but the regular 7-step, non-oem installer shows up when I run Ubiquity. I really need this to work as soon as possible!
Thanks in advance!
