Why is this package marked as outdated?

I have 0.97-21 installed. Should I upgrade?

Since all the documentation refers to this version as "grub-legacy" and the version 2.x as just "grub", I think we should keep the -legacy in the name. At least so it has a different name than the other package.

Package version 0.* is actually the best indicator, that this is legacy version, at least for people who are going to install it from unsupported - if you don't know if this is legacy version why are you going to install it at all w/o completely understanding what are you doing?

I'd rather have it merged the other way around or at least keep the 'legacy' part of the name. There is no way of telling by the name that it is in fact the 'legacy' version otherwise.

What is the difference between grub-gfx and this pkg?

Hi grub-legacy package users!

This package was merged into grub-gfx by elamskoy and there is no point to maintain both of them going forward. So I suggest replace your grub-legacy installations with grub-gfx. Report any issues on migration here. In a week I am going to request deletion of this package in favor of grub-gfx.

No problems on my side, installed grub-gfx and it works fine for me. Should I request deletion of this in mailing list?

Hi. Why not to merge with my package grub-gfx?

Differs with 1 patch, image file and default menu.lst

Mr Green,

for gcc-multilib package you need to have [multilib] repo configured (refer to gcc-multilib-x32 will also work, but it is related to the new linux kernel feature called x32 ABI which is discussing here:
