Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub

Grub does not support booting from the new ext4 file system. The attached bzr diff contains a patch to allow grub to boot from ext4.

This is a modification of the original grub patch by Quentin Godfroy and has been tested by booting from an ext4 file system on an external USB mass storage device using a Jaunty Alpha 2 release.

Typo above.. "Patch proving ext4 support for grub" should read "Patch providing ext4 support for grub"
