    Ubuntu 10.04-amd64 support?

    issacconan Lurker


      I've been trying to create a build profile for ubuntu-10.04 amd64.  I've followed the instructions at http://communities.vmware.com/blogs/vmwarestudio/2010/10/05/adding-new-os-support-ubuntu-10041-server-i386 and tweaked the profile to build for amd64.



      The  OS installs just find, but I ran into problems in the post-install where it won't install the VAMI packages (makes sense, being that I can only find -i386 packages in /opt/vmware/lib/build/include/)



      I assume there's got to be some 64-bit guest OS support since CentOS and RHEL have pre-shipped 64-bit templates, but I can't figure out how to package 64-bit VAMI packages myself... 



      Can anyone assist?






      (For anyone suffering from this, the actual error that you'll see in the failed build varies, but it's usually "[warn] STUDIO ABORT: Provisioning Agent: failed to run script "vmdiscovery": 127" or " STUDIO ABORT: Provisioning Agent: failed to run script ".post.sh": 134", but if you look closely at the application install log, you'll see "E: Couldn't find package vmware-studio-xxx  STUDIO ABORT: Error: Unable to install package "vmware-studio-xxx" earlier up)

            I have two suggestions for you. Please try out at your end.


            1. Please check /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/redhat/5/4_x86_64/build_profile.xml profile for reference.

            2. Remove i386 packages from OSPackages list.

              Already did both of those before the initial post, but thanks.


              Again, the problem isn't the OS install, the problem is just coaxing Studio to generate and post-install 64-bit .deb packages for the vami- packages.


              Also, of interest, I did try to install CentOS 5.4 (well, cheated a bit by using just the 1st disc ISO for 5.5) from the  x86_64 template - and I got i386 flavored vami RPMs in /opt/vmware/www/build/test2.2/repo/vadkPackages/

              So I'm really clueless here...
