Boot-Update "ValueError"

I've installed funtoo several times on exact hardware, was there an update recently to boot-update that broke this or was it an update to the core system?

" I may have to just use a live version of Grub2 if funtoo's boot-update is having issues"

But here are the errors.

(chroot) sysresccd linux # boot-update

boot-update 1.6.7 /
Copyright 2009-2012 Funtoo Technologies

 [use option "-l" for license info, "-h" for help]

 * Generating config for grub...

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sbin/boot-update", line 233, in <module>
    update(c, ok, allmsgs)
  File "/sbin/boot-update", line 168, in update
    success, msgs = ext.regenerate()[1:]
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/funtoo/boot/", line 90, in regenerate
    ok, msgs, l = self.generateConfigFile()
ValueError: need more than 2 values to unpack

This is the first time I've ever seen this error, I've had boot-update errors but that was generally just on my error with fstab and boot.conf.

My install was exactly the same kernel wise and setup wise (exact hardware) on this machine and this is the error I got.

HELP Please ?!

Re: Boot-Update "ValueError"

I know the answer to this problem, if your going to use grub 2.0 do not use the one in the funtoo portage tree as boot-update is not compatiable however grub 1.98 is.

So if you want to use grub 2 you need to use an overlay WHICH you need to use grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Kinda sad boot-update isn't compatible after 5 hours of testing out different versions only 1.98 is compat.
