vagrant bug #7610, certain box images won't boot


Userlevel 4
All the sudden I was having odd issues with vagrant 1.8.5 and CentOS.... despite it working great before in some simulations for customers.

Turns out I hit a nasty bug with vagrant 1.8.5 that can affect all kinds of *nix systems (but thankfully not Ubuntu 14.04 or Cumulus VX!).

I wrote a really quick script to make this easy for you to fix if you have hit this issue->

wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/seanx820/b2c8e8e4868a51209d752c8e01c546ab/raw/ed8f991b041b1decfc2e51ca25d2b1f9b7102fe6/fixvagrant.sh
bash fixvagrant.sh

The problem presents itself as the vagrant image never boots. It will just hang on certain images. In my case CentOS7.2 from both boxcutter and CentOS/7 hashicorp images.
