[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1753430] Re: virtualbox-guest-utils.service not starting

2018-04-11 Thread Tony Middleton
Just did a fresh upgrade of Ubuntu Mate from Xenial to Bionic.  The
guest packages were installed on the Xenial system prior to upgrade.
During the upgrade the guest packages were upgraded, NOT removed.

However, on the upgraded system the virtualbox-guest-utils.service was
NOT started but could be started manually.

Thus the original bug reported on this number still applies, although
all the other issues found on the way seem to have been addressed.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1753430] Re: virtualbox-guest-utils.service not starting

2018-03-21 Thread Tony Middleton
Regarding the original service not starting problem.

If I do a clean 18.04 install everything works OK. (Apart from Lubuntu
where I couldn't get the installer to work.)

If I do a clean 17.10 install without the guest packages because of bug
#1683043, upgrade to 18.04, install dpkg-dev, install the guest packages
everything works.

If I do a clean 16.04 install, add the guest packages, upgrade to 18.04
during which the guest packages are removed,  re add the guest packages
then Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Xubuntu work.  For Lubuntu and Ubuntu Mate the
virtualbox-guest-utils.service does not start automatically but can be
started manually.  This situation is a bit artificial as the packages
shouldn't be removed during the upgrade.

I suggest we revisit this problem when the upgrade package removal
problem is resolved.

Had a look at your PPA and realised that you had got hwe versions of the
guest packages as well as virtualbox-hwe.

So,  added your PPA to 16.04 Kubuntu guest and tried to upgrade to
18.04.  However do-release-upgrade disabled the entry before it
upgraded.  In that case I don't know how to test this.

Slightly confused by this response and the move to "Fix released".

The fix referred to fixes the compilation error.  However there are two
other problems - the service not starting even when the module compiled
and the packages being uninstalled during the upgrade.  Do I need to
raise those as new bugs?

You ask for an upgrade log.  Please can you clarify which log you need.
