Bug#646387: live-build: Bootloader can't boot Live (can't find the kernel and initrd)

Package: live-build
Version: 3.0~a37-1
Severity: important


I have created an image with the commands:

	mkdir -p config/chroot_local-packagelists
	echo '#include <standard>' >config/chroot_local-packagelists/lvm.list
	echo 'lvm2' >>config/chroot_local-packagelists/lvm.list
	lb config \
		--distribution wheezy \
		--package-lists lvm
	lb build

It creates an iso image that I have started with virtualbox. I shows the
boot menu with "Live" and "Other options". Selecting "Live" doesn't do
anything. From the other options starting HDT or memtest86 does work.

The problem that I have found is, that Live wants to load the file
/live/vmlinuz but using rosh shows that there is only the file
/live/vmlinuz_3.0.0_1_amd64. I would expect that there is a symbolic
link from vmlinuz to vmlinuz_3.0.0_1_amd64 which isn't there.

Entering manually the full filenames on the boot command line does start
the linux system.

    /live/vmlinuz_3.0.0_1_amd64 initrd=/live/initrd.img boot=live config
