building virtual ubuntu intrepid installs with u-v-b

Currently building an intrepid install with ubuntu-vm-builder like ‘sudo ubuntu-vm-builder kvm intrepid’ will produce:

Creating /var/run/network
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package linux-virtual
umount target

This is because there’s no intrepid meta package for linux-virtual, which is what u-v-b tries to install by default to get a kernel. Instead build with ‘sudo ubuntu-vm-builder kvm intrepid –kernel-flavour server.

It looks like the Ubuntu Kernel Team is rebuilding the linux-meta package for intrepid and hasn’t added a new linux-virtual metapackage yet. There was some discussion about this not being done yet in May.
