    UCK. Don ‘t work in ubuntu 12.04. In don’t know why, but i think thats is something bad in the UCK-gui script

    Thank you very much for the fix.I had problem with resolv.conf on Precise and could not customize any ISO.I am excited to see this fix and going to install it. I have another issue that UCK does not allow me to customize Precise ISO as this file /home/USER/tmp/remaster.root/var/run file exists error.Anyway let me do the changes first and see how it works for me.Thanks a lot.

    I know it’s not good but I need to hurry customize ubuntu desktop 4.12 i386 for workers in my company, we’re going to get into linux, and I want to fix some errors that have the uck 2.4.6, this gives me building failed to choose between building the iso on either console or gnome or synaptic unity is urgent because we’re going to change now and not to do the same thing over and over again I customizes the ubuntu to install. I hope you have luck, carefully:

    Hi Fabrizio,

    what about SVN? I can’t find any link on here!

    Have a pleasant weeekend,

    Sorry Fabrizio, but it seems that “resolv.conf bug” while remastering 12.04 isn’t yet fixed … is it possible?

    Here 2.4.6 log; I’ve tried both with stable and svn version: always the same error (even if I add “–remove-destination” to the cp -f in line 357 in /usr/lib/uck/remaster-live-cd.sh (lines copied below).

    I don’t call launchpad for a bug because is a known bug and probaly is me the one who’s doing something wrong (and in this case: where?)…

    Thank you,


    a) line 355-58 from /usr/lib/uck/remaster-live-cd.sh

    if [ ! -e “$REMASTER_DIR/etc/resolv.conf” ] ; then
    echo “Copying resolv.conf…”
    # cp -f /etc/resolv.conf “$REMASTER_DIR/etc/resolv.conf” ||
    cp -f –remove-destination /etc/resolv.conf “$REMASTER_DIR/etc/resolv.conf” ||
    failure “Failed to copy resolv.conf, error=$?”

    Uck 2.4.6 riesce a fare una personalizzata di Ubuntu 4.12 LTS Ubuntu i386 4,12 a, preferibilmente entro il 28 di questo mese è quando devo installare tutta l’azienda.

    un saluto,

    @Salvatore: hai riportato il bug sul bug report? facilmente però è il solito problema di zenity, che però non posso risolvere perché non è uck buggato ma zenity appunto… ma comunque se usi gli uck-remaster-* scripts funziona tutto perfettamente (o anche se fai remastering di kubuntu)

  8. Salvatore

    @Fabrizio Balliano: OK, userò l’UCK remaster sono tali grazie, dove posso scaricare l’UCK remaster? qualche dubbio ti farò sapere, al più presto.

  9. Salvatore

    @Fabrizio Balliano: e provare a rimasterizzare, ma invece di darmi errore e chiude direttamente senza errori, questo sarà il mio pc che è speciale :D

    The resolv.conf error can be fixed by simply editing the remaster script to show lines a) line 355-58 from /usr/lib/uck/remaster-live-cd.sh

    instead of cp resolv.conf….
    replace resolv.conf with /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/original /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/

    By editing as such i was able to have net access during build.

    I have the same problem on Linux Mint 13 (Ubuntu 12.04 precise) I’m also running UCK 2.4.6. It is not fixed for me. Modifying the UCK script does not help. Do you have a solution for this yet?

    ‘Failed to copy resolv.conf, error=1’
    Build failed

    I’m trying to customize Ubuntu 12.04 precise desktop.

    I’ve been trying for two days, but I could not pass customization screen. When I select console application or package manager for customization it always fails without any error in log file.
