Re: [Libguestfs] appliance VM won't start, can't find /init, but /init is in the image.

(This works for me in 11.04)

febootstrap does:

  apt-cache depends --recurse -i %list-of-pkgs% | grep -v '^[<[:space:]]'


  apt-cache depends --recurse -i bash libc6 | grep -v '^[<[:space:]]'

It then downloads each one using 'aptitude download'.

Each is then unpacked using:

  dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile %filename% | (cd %tmpdir% && tar xf -)

Does that list contain libc6?

Does 'aptitude download libc6' work?

If downloaded, does the unpacked deb contain the expected symlink?

  make -C appliance clean all

should be sufficient.
