This page documents how installation of some new machines is being done.
Another option might be switching to http://www.informatik.uni-koeln.de/fai/ or a equivalent system.
Steps for install_crosshurd:
Enable loggin with screen (
# lvcreate ...
# MACHINE=[MACHINE] TARGET=/dev/zenhost/[MACHINE]-root ./install_crosshurd
# sudo umount /tmp/*/target
# xm create -c [MACHINE]
Unpacking debconf (from .../debconf_1.5.28_all.deb) ... + debconf-set-selections warning: Unknown type error, skipping line 9

Some PAM module packages provide profiles that can be used to automatically adjust the behavior of all PAM-using applications on the system. Please indicate which of these behaviors you wish to enable. 1. Unix authentication (Enter the items you want to select, separated by spaces.) PAM profiles to enable:
if it's a Xen domU:
# sudo apt-get --purge install libc0.3-xen libc0.3-i686-
# mkfs.ext2 -I 128 -b 4096 /dev/hd2 # TAKE CARE! # settrans /media/data /hurd/ext2fs /dev/hd2 # mkdir /media/data/home # rmdir /home && ln -s media/data/home / # mkfs.ext2 -I 128 -b 4096 /dev/hd3 # TAKE CARE! # settrans /media/var /hurd/ext2fs /dev/hd3 # mv /var /media/var/ # ln -s media/var/var /
If needed: restore (parts of) some files
# adduser ... sudo
# passwd root
mkdir /etc/ssh), restore
# syncfs -s && halt
# xm create -c [MACHINE]
- # /install_packages
Until screen is fixed:
- # printf 'screen\thold\n' | dpkg --set-selections
