Preseed in Mint 13 not working

Postby vikingtowel on Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:48 pm

Hi everyone,

I have been able to use preseed to install LM 12 without a problem, but it no longer works in LM 13 MATE or Cinnamon editions on 64 bit. It works without a problem on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit so something has changed between Ubuntu and Mint.

I typically use a line in syslinux.cfg that read like this...

Code: Select all
append initrd=/ubninit file=/cdrom/preseed/mint_extrabits.seed boot=casper automatic-ubiquity noprompt quiet splash --


and Mint would install with all my preferred stuff as laid out in the mint_extrabits.seed file. But now when I boot up from the USB stick (created with Unetbootin) to do the install ubiquity doesn't start at all. It behaves as if I hadn't customised anything at all.

Anyone with some help would be appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I managed to figure out what the problem was.

MDM does not work with preseeding. I had to install LightDM on my installation ISO and now preseeding works without a problem. I believe this could be considered a bug in MDM.

Cheers,
