I'm getting this bug too on 14.04. Does anyone know if a bug was ever reported for it?

comment Is the “affects me” button in launchpad gone?
@KarlRichter - I actually agree... maybe better still would be to make the link always active, but invite you to log in when you click it (like SO does) :)

@JacobVlijm Not so much "sharp" as "I do this all the time, and it takes me several refreshes to figure it out." :P

comment Install RabbitVCS for Thunar: package thunarx-python missing
FYI, I've just uploaded v0.3.0 of the thunarx-python packages to the PPAs. This should no longer be an issue.

comment How can I use the installer to manually boot into a system without GRUB installed?
@muru - No, I just ended up at a prompt that said (initramfs). I tried just about everything for that root param. When I'm actually booted, it's /dev/sda2 (that contains /boot/grub, the EFI partition is /dev/sda1). Since GRUB saw it as (hd2,gpt2), I also tried /dev/sd[abc]2. Only the root=UUID=... form worked (and that's what's in /boot/grub/grub.cfg).

@muru - I think the "weirdness" you're referring to is that it insists on looking for an HFS+ partition, and having that "bless" utility. I'm hoping to write up a minimal procedure for this so that it can be fixed in the future.

@muru - I found a non-Mac installer and used that. The whole thing works much better.

@muru Thanks, that helps. It looks like there's a lot of extra options for the installer itself, but I suspect I need a lower-level SYSLINUX command, not an installer option.
