Libertine installation broken on Vivid

  • Due to some changes on (namely, the move of the vivid repository to old-releases), future users may find that creating containers in Libertine is broken (until Xenial comes along, then this fix isn't needed any longer).

    The fix is trivial for the chroot backend, simply open /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/libertine/ and replace all mention of with and add to the end of the debootstrap command in the same file (after the {}s)

    This will patch libertine until UBports forks it and commits the fix to their repository. You will need your system image mounted read-write to make the change, to do this non-permanently, simply do sudo mount -o remount,rw / it will remount as read-only after a reboot with the changes intact.

    Edit: I have added the general gist of the information (minus the exact fixes) to issue #302 of the ubports/ubuntu-touch issue tracker.
