comment How do I configure two NICs in ubuntu-server preseed?
I completely disagree that this question is "too localized". Most servers have multiple NICs: 1-4 1GbE on-board, and with 10GbE, usually 2 on a PCIe card. I too would like suggestions on how best to enable them.

comment apt reports dependency “is not installable” for installed (virtual) package
Thanks, but please see Note 2. I don't want libsfgcc1 installed; I want libgcc1:armel because it's required by libssl1.0.0:armel. So the question is, why is libgcc1-armel seen as an unmet dependency when it's provided by libgcc1:armel, which is already installed?

comment OpenJDK default options to always use the server VM
This is partially incorrect: it's the order that determines the default JVM, not KNOWN or IGNORE. (The comments in that file indicate this: "Order is important -- first in this list is the default JVM".) IGNORE just silently disables a VM option. Your original jvm.cfg uses server as the default, and has client silently disabled, probably because it isn't present.

comment Detect processor during preseed post-install script
Sort of (assuming you mean /proc/cpuinfo), but even accessing /proc from preseed sounds complicated. Then you have to parse out the architecture yourself by grepping for various keywords that identify x86-32, x86-64, ARM, etc.

comment How to install only the dependencies of a package?
There are a lot of cases this doesn't handle, e.g. it will completely break on virtual packages (which are printed in angle brackets). See here for examples: askubuntu.com/questions/25361/…

comment How to install only the dependencies of a package?
I need the ability to do this so I can build and install a source package that isn't already built for my architecture. apt-get build-dep installs build dependencies, so apt-get -b source works, but runtime dependencies aren't installed, so dpkg -i *.deb fails.
