partitioning in intrepid installer fails (under qemu)

debian-installer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

(This may be a qemu problem, for all I know.)

I have just attempted three installs of the Intrepid Alpha 1 amd64 alternate ISO image, under qemu. They all failed. The latter two failures failed at the partitioning stage in identical ways: after partitions have been created and filesystems have been created, the installer attempts to mount the root filesystem and fails. The relevant section from syslog:

Jun 27 09:56:07 kernel: [ 374.543015] Adding 361420k swap on /dev/sda5. Priority:-1 extents:1 across:361420k

Jun 27 09:56:08 partman: mke2fs 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008)

Jun 27 09:56:46 kernel: [ 412.799348] EXT3-fs error (device sda1): ext3_check_descriptors: Block bitmap for group 16 not in group (block 0)!

Jun 27 09:56:46 kernel: [ 412.799593] Remounting filesystem read-only

Jun 27 09:56:46 kernel: [ 412.804844] EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted!

The host system is an amd64 system running hardy + hardy-updates + hardy-proposed. The guest system is qemu-system-x86_64. The disk image file is of RAW format.

Could you try intrepid beta and see if this still happens?

This no longer happens, so I'll mark this as fixed.

Grub never finishes installation (or at least not in 9 hours), but that's another problem.

Changed in debian-installer:
