stgrabercjwatson: so the question I had is about the signed grub2 on UEFI and how it finds its config. I reinstalled my laptop using raring with just an EFI partition and a LVM partition. My / is on a LV which led to grub giving me a recovery shell on first boot.00:45
stgraberI vaguely remember seeing a minimal grub.cfg in /boot/efi in the past that'd point grub towards the real config file but can't find it on that clean install00:46
stgraberso I just want to check whether we've got a bug there or if it's not a supported setup, whether it's possible to dump a grub config on the EFI partition to have it source the config from the LVM (instead of me doing this at every boot ;))00:47
dankRan into bug 1080701 on 2 out of 3 machines, repeatably21:17
ubot2Launchpad bug 1080701 in ubiquity (Ubuntu Raring) "After 'Preparing to install Ubuntu' screen, raring installation hangs" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/108070121:17
dankMounting a partition manually works around the problem for me.   I'd be happy to do test runs for any developer interested.21:57
cjwatsonIf you'll be around tomorrow we may well want to have a look22:03
cjwatsonAlthough possibly in UK working hours so hopefully there's some intersection22:03
cjwatsonThe ideal thing for us to have would be a way to reproduce it in a virtual machine, so that one of us can look at it directly, repeatedly reset the state, that kind of thing22:06
cjwatsonBut I appreciate that may not be exactly trivial22:06
dankThink it'd be reproducible in the live cd by just running partman with the right commandline?22:24
dankalas, just running partman doesn't seem to reproduce the problem; it uses the console UI, and gets to the partitioning screen ok.   Hmm.22:36
dankI could be available tomorrow morning to run tests, I'm in California, can test  starting about 7am (3pm London time)22:39
