Exercise 2.1: Can't get provided CentOS 7 image to boot?
I'm wondering if any kind soul can help me.
I'm falling at the first hurdle of LFS216 here - I can't get the provided VM to boot.
I've downloaded https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/VIRTUAL_MACHINE_IMAGES/CentOS7.tar.xz, and have set up a new machine in VirtualBox on my Mac, and am using this as a disk image.
(I believe using my Mac as the host should be fine? https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/VIRTUAL_MACHINE_IMAGES/000README.txt states that "The VM's have been confirmed to work on Linux, Windows and MacOS host machines.")
The machine initially starts to boot fine (on /boot/3.10.0), and I see the CentOS Linux 7 progress bar, but then this error is produced:
The /boot/5.1.0 option produces the same error - but the (0-rescue) option works, and gives me a login window. I assume this may not be ideal for the rest of the course, however.
I've done a lot of Googling, and trying various fixes for dracut related issues (I'm guessing the disk uuids don't match somewhere?), but to no avail.
Can anyone please help? I obviously can't get further on the course whilst falling at this first hurdle.
