2010-09-18 02:20:25 James Stevens description Binary package hint: grub-pc The grub-pc.postinst script fails to detect virtio "vda" disk in a KVM guest because it looks for entries in /dev/disk/by-id/* and there is absolutely no /dev/disk/by-id directory at all when the only disk is a vda virtio one. You can test this either by creating a new KVM VM guest running Ubuntu 10.04 with only virtio vda disk or by converting an existing hda disk VM guest into a vda one and then trying to purge and re-install grub-pc. If the KVM VM guest running Ubuntu 10.04 is configured to boot from LVM this issue is not seen; the failure requires a guest with a bare /dev/vda disk. Applying the patch (attached) to grub-pc.postinst in the KVM VM guest allows you to install (or re-install) grub-pc; without it the grub-pc package will not configure. Patch is against grub-pc 1.98-1ubuntu6 ProblemType: Bug DistroRelease: Ubuntu 10.04 Package: grub-pc 1.98-1ubuntu6 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 2.6.32-22.36-generic 2.6.32.11+drm33.2 Uname: Linux 2.6.32-22-generic i686 NonfreeKernelModules: nvidia Architecture: i386 Date: Sun Jul 11 12:15:58 2010 ProcEnviron: PATH=(custom, user) LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SHELL=/bin/bash SourcePackage: grub2 Binary package hint: grub-pc The grub-pc.postinst script fails to detect virtio "vda" disk in a KVM guest because it looks for entries in /dev/disk/by-id/* and there is absolutely no /dev/disk/by-id directory at all when the only disk is a vda virtio one.
