Final part of the logfile:

It looks like this affects all builds, since building with theDutch customization package also fails

Same problem with ubuntu-defaults-builder 0.45.
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit

Redmar (redmar) wrote :

I've done some more testing, and it appears this only happens for building Quantal 64 bit, no matter which customizations are used. For example, building the example on Q64bit with --arch i368 works, building on Q32 with --arch amd64 fails.

I'll test if this bug occurs for raring next

This bug does not occur for raring, 32 or 64 bit.

Closing Raring task since it occurs only on Quantal

This appears to be an issue with grub versus the kernel. I'll add a grub2 bug task for review.

also occurs in succesfull builds, so it would seem this is not a fatal error. I've also attached the log for a succesfull Quantal 32 bit build. This image was build on up-to-date raring.

quantal has seen the end of its life and is no longer receiving any updates. Marking the quantal task for this ticket as "Won't Fix".
