Description Zenon Panoussis 2018-12-21 17:04:04 UTC
Virtual host, MBR, single standard partition xfs-formatted, no boot partition. Grub reports "not a correct xfs node" and drops to a shell. It happens again after a full reinstall. The problem goes away with ext4. Looks very much like bug #1001279.
