Hi Anders and everybody,

I just updated pv-grub-menu as follows:

	pv-grub-menu (1.3) unstable; urgency=medium

	  * Never assume the presence of a device.map file; create a temporary one.
	    [840ba0c] Closes: #732408.
	  * Removed code for various operations that are not needed in the context
	    of pv-grub-menu: RAID support [c9b7f86], transition to GRUB 2 [4a702dc],
	    alternative locations for menu.lst [d8aae34], relative paths [1a419be],
	    splash images [e4d1608].

I have tested that an Amazon instance can reboot with the menu.lst file created
by pv-grub-menu.  However, I notice that it uses UUIDs by default, and I
suspect that it may be problematic as they may change after the image was
initially created.

I guess that the most robust solution would be to ensure that the root partition
has a label, and use it ?

Have a nice Sunday,
