Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-vm-builder

Please provide support for creating the virtual machine image(s) on LVM2 logical volumes in ubuntu-vm-builder.

The qemu-img script provides support for this, so the only necessary extension (or so I naively believe it) is to create the appropriately sized logical volumes before invoking qemu-img convert (and of course taking the necessary additional parameters for specifying the parent volume group to create the logical volumes within and a possible logical volume name prefix).

This should already be possible by using the --raw option.

If you find that this is not the case, feel free to reopen this bug.

Installing onto a lvm volume does not work. Grub is failing to install. I attach a logfile from the build process.

Another problem is that vmbuilder refuses to install onto a logical volume if I specify partition layout that is bigger than 5120. "Exception: Partition is out of bounds. start=9000, end=9511, disksize=5120" when adding a swap space (512M) after added a root partition on 9G.
