#4834 closed defect (notsugar)

mbr.bin not found on Ubuntu 14.10

Reported by: whoeverest Owned by:
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Ubuntu
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


When running:

sudo /run/soas/LiveOS/livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr --overlay-size-mb 500 --home-size-mb 800 --unencrypted-home --format --reset-mbr ~/Downloads/Fedora-Live-SoaS-x86_64-21-5.iso /dev/sdb

I got:

"Could not find mbr.bin (syslinux)"

The script fails because it searches for file in /usr/lib/syslinux/ while the file is kept in /usr/lib/syslinux/mbr/.

Symlinking fixed the problem.

I've installed syslinux from a package (apt-get install syslinux) so I presume this is a problem for everyone trying to create a live usb on Ubuntu 14.10

This is not a bug on Sugar itself, but would be good document it in some place.
Closing because is not a Sugar bug.
