With custom kernel in AMD64 architecture, snap command not found


#1

Hi,

I am testing ubuntu core 18 in an x86VM by simply re- complying the standard amd64 gadget and kernel18 gadget.

When I boot the image on x86 box via VM, the image prints the below error and allows to “press enter to configure”
/usr/share/subiquity/console-conf-wrapper: line 13: snap: command not found

Press enter to configure.

Thereafter it is constantly printing the error “snap: command not found” on every attempt to network login and doesn’t allow to connect

The Seed.manifest of the image is

pc-kernel x1
core18 1066
9004gadget x1
snapd 3646

The gadget snapcraft.yaml is

#2

it would help if you could put three backticks around the pasted code so it does not lose the formatting

so it will look
   like 
      this 

what kernel tree did you base on, that snapcraft.yaml is pretty ubuntu specific (using the “generic” defconfig) ?


#3

Yes Ogra will do next time.

Kernel is based out Ubuntu-4.15.0-55.60 head. No changes to the source.

I am testing just local complication of standard gadget and kernel snaps and building an image and testing in VM

VM command
sudo qemu-system-x86_64
-m 2048
-drive file=pc.img,format=raw,if=none,id=drive-sata0-0-0
-device ide-hd,drive=drive-sata0-0-0,id=sata0-0-0,bootindex=1
-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=net00
-netdev type=user,id=net00

you can just edit the existing posts, no need to re-post the stuff :wink:

#7

do you still have the ubuntu-image command you used at hand ?

(and the model file too)


#8

yes here you go

sudo UBUNTU_STORE_ID=<> UBUNTU_STORE_AUTH_DATA_FILENAME=store.auth ubuntu-image
snap --snap 9004gadget* --snap pc-kernel_*.snap -O 9004_m
9004.model

#9

aha, it might be related to the store …
(i’m trying to collect some info)


#10

i think @wililupy might be able to help you (but he might not be up yet being in the US)


#11

Ok thanks very much Ogra.


#12

I assume the model: field is blank just for the paste here. Naturally it does need a value that will match your SV config.


#13

Hi Muthiah,

I see that the system starts the console-conf for configuration of the device. Can you import your ssh key to the device and login via ssh?

I sent you via email a system-user assertion that you can try to seed a system-user to the device so that you can use that to login to the device locally. Please let me know if this works. If you can login to the device, please forward me the journalctl -xe and tail /var/log/syslog and we can see what is going on with snapd snap

Thanks,
Luke
