Bug Description

This is bug 946022 but on virt-builder.

I created an Ubuntu virtual machine with virt-builder and sometimes it doesn't boot.

Booting from a CD and then chrooting into the system to install grub2 helped.

What's the precise virt-builder command line you are using?

Did you read the `virt-builder --notes ubuntu-xxx' output?

virt-builder --root-password password:foo --firstboot-install screen,htop --firstboot-command "dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server" --format qcow2 --size 10G --upload /tmp/foo.tar.gz:/root/foo.tar.gz --run-command "cd /root; tar xvf foo.tar.gz" --memsize 1024 --output ubuntu2.qcow2 ubuntu-14.04

yes., I've read the notes.

As I've said, I "fixed" the problem by installing grub-2.

The problem seems to be the inode size of the ext-fs.
