Hi all, not sure if this is the right forum or not, but I am trying to build a package to run on my tegra3 device, which is fairly simple to build with rootstock, the problem I am having is that there are no debootstrap scripts for lisa so it bombs with the error "Your debootstrap installation does not seem to have support for the lisa distribution" and I have no idea how to build one, or what I should do, can anyone help?
Go to /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts, copy the one from oneiric and name it lisa. Then try again.
Hey Tobi, we are getting closer, now it runs, unfortunately now I get a new error "E: Failed getting release file https://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/lisa/Release" like I said thank you for all your help!!!
OK, the real problem is that you use rootstock, which depends on debootstrap. This would be perfectly fine if you would use Debian or Ubuntu. But you are using Mint and they don't provide scripts for their distro for a simple reason: For installing a core with debootstrap they simply use the Ubuntu script, since the core of Mint is Ubuntu. In fact, Mint is not much more than a Ubuntu respin with some customized packages in an extra repository.
So the real solution to your question is: either try if there is an option to make the initial debootstrap manually (I know nothing about rootstock, but the developers site says that it is abandoned) or to use a clean Ubuntu for your respin.
