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



OK, for completion's sake,
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libc6" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libncurses5" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libselinux1" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libblkid1" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "module-init-tools" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libuuid1" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libreadline6" ] in
  let pkgs = pkgs @ [ "libacl1" ] in

was sufficient to boot into userspace.  Now I'm hitting a bunch of interesting problems:

Another thing to do would be to modify the grep command here:

http://git.annexia.org/?p=febootstrap.git;a=blob;f=febootstrap_debian.ml;h=4aa7389657aedf281a6aa908984a02891de801be;hb=HEAD#l37

in order to make it include all the Depends and Pre-Depends packages
(assuming that ncurses is amongst those).
