Hi,

it seems that grub-legacy should be replaced with grub-pc (grub2) in subversion (SVN) debian-live build.

I have encountered hang in grub setup when installing Voyage 0.11 (jessie) built from SVN.

I was trying to install it on a PC (Supermicro X7SPA/D510) with Intel SSD SSDSC2BW120H6 (120 GB)

I have

- booted debian jessie live distro from CD-ROM ISO image mounted over samba (it's a feature of IPMI on X7SPA)

- using parted and mkfs.ext4 I have created /dev/sda1 over whole the disk (sda1 starting at sector 2048) and created ext4 fs.

- extracted tar archive with voyage to /tmp

- ran ./usr/local/sbin/voyage.update as usually

- installed "Generic PC" profile to /dev/sda (root /dev/sda1), using /mnt/cf as target directory

The file copy phase went OK but grub installation froze with 100% CPU forever.


The command to freeze was:

grub> setup (hd0) (hd0,0)


Nearly identical issue is described here:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=425648


To fix my voyage installation I have

- bind mounted /proc (/dev was bind mounted already)

- chrooted to /mnt/cf

- apt-get installed grub-pc (grub2) while refused to install grub to boot sector during package setup

- ran install-grub /dev/sda

- ran update-grub to be sure

- checked that /boot/grub/grub.cfg looks OK

Machine than rebooted to Voyage OK.
