Bug#699754: grub core.img too large when using lvm+md

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: wheezy

Hi Joost,

Filing a bug as discussed.

When I upgraded a desktop system from Squeeze to Wheezy, it failed to install
grub in my MBR. The reason given was probably along the lines of this:

  warning: your core.img is unusually large.  It won't fit in the embedding area.
  error: embedding is not possible, but this is required for RAID and LVM install.

This worked in squeeze but in wheezy my system which has lvm and software raid
has tipped it over the line.

I have no exact log as to what I did, but it came down to booting from a UBCD,
converting my partition table to a GUID table so I could fit the thing in.

Hope this helps.
