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)
- 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
The command to freeze was:
grub> setup (hd0) (hd0,0)
Nearly identical issue is described here:
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.
