I did follow for the 4th times the Chris's recommendations:
mount /dev/mapper/root1 /mnt/linux1 -o ro
mount /dev/mapper/root2 /mnt/linux2
cp -a /mnt/linux1/* /mnt/linux2
cp -a /mnt/linux1/.readahead /mnt/linux2
cp -a /mnt/linux1/boot /mnt/linux2
(I did not have a rsync command on the gparted live distribution that I have)
mount -B /run /mnt/linux2/run
mount -B /proc /mnt/linux2/proc
mount -B /dev /mnt/linux2/dev
mount -B /sys /mnt/linux2/sys
chroot /mnt/linux2
vi /etc/fstab (to change to the new partitions labelling)
dracut -f /boot/initramfs-3.12.5-200.fc19.i686.PAE.img
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Then I modify the original /boot/grub2/grub.cfg to get the booting on the
clone without modifying the mbr (grub2-install)

And I get always the same behavior:
failed to start .......
   create static device modes in /dev
   journal service
   open pack file: permission denied

In my opinion, I need to do something else, but what?

> I don't follow this. You used cp /dev/sda /dev/sdb? Device to device? Or you specified directories to copy? I've had cp -a of directories not work, in particular it misses hidden files unless you explicitly copy them. I've had better luck with rsync. And I've had impressively good luck with btrfs send/receive, that's a cake walk, and fast.
