Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-04-16 13:04:41 EDT
Description of problem:

Welcome to virt-rescue, the libguestfs rescue shell.                            
Note: The contents of / are the rescue appliance.                               
You have to mount the guest's partitions under /sysroot                         
before you can examine them.                                                    
bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device    
bash: no job control in this shell                                              
groups: cannot find name for group ID 0                                         
I have no name!@(none):/#

^^^ note the prompt should be "><rescue>"                               

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

virt-rescue 1.14.8
(rather old version in Ubuntu)
