pbuilder create Mint error

Postby rooz on Tue Dec 16, 2008 10:28 am

I followed this Ubuntu packaging howto on youtube to be able to build packages for Ubuntu and Linux Mint:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyEl3w7SFK4
But I got:
Code: Select all
$ sudo pbuilder create
Distribution is intrepid.
Building the build environment
 -> running debootstrap
/usr/sbin/debootstrap
I: Retrieving Release
E: Failed getting release file http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/intrepid/Release
pbuilder: debootstrap failed
 -> Aborting with an error
 -> cleaning the build env
    -> removing directory /var/cache/pbuilder/build//7324 and its subdirectories


some help = needed here....

There's the error - there is no such file in our repos to my knowledge

That is probably because the path is correct there - I have not checked out the youtube you watched, but you indicate it's for both Mint and Ubuntu. This means there's a good chance that the path is dynamically made and in the wrong manner for Mint. It should probably be the same as in Ubuntu which I guess could be
http://packages.ubuntu.com/dists/intrepid/Release
(ubuntu automatically switched to linuxmint by whatever application you used)

So what exactly needs to be done to fix this? I have the same problem and know that http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/jaunty/Release doesn't exist, but how do I change it?

Never mind, I figured it out with pbuilder create --mirror "http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu"
