Hi,

 

I was working on a Debian machine some days ago.

There I had to use grub2-mkconfig to let Grub scan for OSs installed and create a config file.

It seems like this is normal Grub behaviour and not an addon from the Debian guys.

 

Back on funtoo I was checking out "grub-mkconfig". However it just created a comment, and not a working grub conf.

 

I know in funtoo we use boot-update. But I wondered why the "normal grub" behaviour does not work, even seems to be disabled.

 

peace

Funtoo maintains a forked grub, which has no grub2-mkconfig and offer boot-update as an alternative

grub2-mkconfig sucks.

Use boot-update it works perfectly. Or edit grub.cfg directly.

Hello,

 

I think I have to bump this one.

 

grub2-mkconfig sucks.

Use boot-update it works perfectly. Or edit grub.cfg directly.

 

That's a matter of taste I think. I come from Gentoo to Funtoo and the only problem I had so far is that Funtoo has no working grub-mkconfig. Is there a way to install normal Grub from Gentoo?

I have a quite complex grub.cfg with my own theme and stuff and never had big problems using grub-mkconfig. But boot-update is no option because it lacks support for all those things how it seems. A USE flag would be nice fpr grub to diable this boot-update stuff und use the normal grub-mkconfig!

Any solution to this!?

We could add back grub-mkconfig in a future ebuild of grub so it's available for those who want to use it. You can open a bug on this.
