#633 closed defect (obsolete)

Soas2-200903251017 on VirtualBox has trouble booting from VBox disc

Reported by: FGrose Owned by: sdz
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: VirtualBox Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Resolved

Description

This originally started as ticket:629, but that was converted to the general disk space issue.

The problem here was observed with Soas2-200903251071.iso after installation as liveUSB onto a VirtualBox disk on an Ibex32 host.

While preparing for VBox Guest Additions,

yum install dkms gcc make ppl binutils glibc-devel glibc-headers kernel-headers kernel-devel

results in this transaction check error messages shown in the attached file.

df shows the volumes at 100% (as seems to be normal with VBox auto expanding discs and the squashfs).

This may be a problem with the VirtualBox--Fedora 10.92 guest system.

<code>yum remove libgweather</code> allowed me to complete the yum install on Soas2-20090321 image.
This didn't work with Soas2-0325 image on 2 tries.

Logs attached of boot from iso image as cdrom and unformatted, fixed-sized virtual disc.

2 Journal Full alerts are presented at every activity invocation and resume. This points away from expanding disc hypothesis. Filing this comment and will reboot from virtual harddisc next.

Booting from the VBox harddisc with Soas2-0325 installed as live image with --overlay-size-mb 256 --home-size-mb 160 --unencrypted-home --delete-home fails to bring up Sugar. Switches from console to graphical windows several times.

When I try ls -l /home/l<tab>, I get this message: EXT3-fs error (device loop5): htree_dirblock_to_tree: bad entry in directory #2: rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=19, rec_len=8, name_len=0
