Yes, I thought it would be a good idea to "prepare" everything with mkfs
and mkswap. It obviously wasn't ;)

Run with --clean to have the build script re-create the file system.

... and that seems to be doing the trick.

Now another question came up:

Why do I need root rights to build in kvm? I can start a complete OS image
without root rights, so why do I need it for build?

Has anybody ever used this successfully?

/me :-)

I could have guessed that ;)
