comment How do I find/change where GRUB 2 gets installed on a rewrite, on Debian Wheezy?
@Gregor I'm not sure I see what you are going for. /boot exists within the root partition, which is mounted by-uuid and lives on the device /dev/md0, but I don't see how the physical location of the contents of /boot has any bearing on whether GRUB is installed in the partition boot record or the master boot record, and on which device(s). device.map is dated from around when I installed the current device that holds the root file system, and has a mixture of old and current entries, but the physical device that holds /dev/md0 is in the list (as hd0).

comment Does ZFS for Linux over stress VirtualBox?
FWIW, I'm running ZoL 0.6.3 on top of Linux on real hardware, and while I have seen a few of these errors they are definitely rare enough to really stand out in the syslog notifications. That's in about a year and a half of nearly 24/7 workstation "production" usage. While I haven't yet tried running ZoL or any ZFS implementation in a VM, I'd be inclined to agree with your hypothesis that this is related to the VM, not to ZFS or ZoL.

comment find exclude directory
Based on the find | less in the question, the OP is looking for a simple list of files. How does this help with that?

comment With “find /”, skip directories like “/proc”, “/sys” and similar
Might also be a duplicate of find: combining -path and -prune to exclude files and directories or Exclude directory in find.

comment Jessie: can't boot the kernel 3.16.0-4-amd64
/dev/mapper/fabienm-root? Do you have some unusual LVM setup? Also, please consider posting this to the Debian bug tracker; it's impossible to tell for sure from what you've posted here, but it smells a bit like a potential release-critical bug.

comment Which partition is mounted to where?
@Miline /dev/sd* to refer to disks and partitions is Linux-specific as well. Other Unix-like systems solve the same problem but have different naming conventions.

Great! Turns out I didn't give the VM enough disk space to fit everything in there. The package list however looks easily big enough to make sense, after apt-get update + dump/merge-avail + set-selections + apt-mark. This certainly answers the question, but if you can add a TL;DR with just the commands in the correct order (as a bullet list or something) it'd be near perfect.

Okay, that gave a very much shorter list of warnings from --set-selections. Now how do I apply the changes? Even apt-get -u dist-upgrade only mentions a handful of packages (all ZFS-related) where there should be hundreds if not thousands of packages affected.

@Gilles That didn't really make any discernable difference, but I did find something else. See the updated question.

@Gilles Interesting point. I hadn't really considered the possibility, but I do use different mirrors on these. Let me see if it still happens if I point the VM at the same Debian mirror. Stand by.
