My mistake, sorry. I've allready fixed now, and I've found and fixed a bug in intel ucode patch.

It's all good, thanks for updating it. Minor annoyance: grub-extras-8a245d5c1800627af4cefa99162a89c7a46d8842.tar.gz fails the validity check.

First at all I want to apologize, when I assume this package in descember I didn't know that I had to move to a place where I can't work on it because of multiple reasons; but now I've updated it and I will keep updating it on every grub new version. Feel free to contact me if you detect any bug.

  • Reworked patches to work with grub 2.04
  • Removed unnecesary patches
  • Removed unifont nonsense :)

It has not come to my consciousness the knowledge required to understand all these patches. However, I added the mentioned fixes to the package (thanks @veyvey88 (you are the true hero!), @0byte and @awfulwaffle) and was able to get it working. I added the changes. Enjoy while it works!

Message at the end of installation: "Please reinstall GRUB first: "grub-install --target=i386-pc --boot-directory=/your/boot/partition /dev/sdx"

"grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --boot-directory=/boot /dev/sda" did not work.

"grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id=grub" work, but grub-silent displays the boot logs anyway. Standard grub does not show boot logs.

Fix for error "cp: cannot stat '/home/$USER/grub-silent/src/unifont-10.0.06.bdf': No such file or directory" I had to manually 'gunzip unifont-10.0.06.bdf.gz'. After that, package got installed successfully.

Fast fix for "relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet" (tried to be as newbie friendly as possible):

  1. Download
  2. Download
  3. Extract grub-silent somewhere
  4. Extract just '0010-relocation.patch' from grub-luks-keyfile.tar.gz to the same location
  5. Open PKGBUILD in the grub-silent extracted directory with your favorite text editor
  6. Add '0010-relocation.patch' a line below '09-Fix-packed-not-aligned-error-on-GCC-8.patch' in the source=( section (should be new line 68)
  7. Add these lines under prepare() (should start at line 113 with blank space on 112 and 116):

    msg "Applying fix for relocation error 0x4"

    patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/10-relocation.patch"

  8. Save PKGBUILD
  9. Open location of PKGBUILD for grub-silent in Terminal with cd .../grub-silent
  10. run: makepkg --skipinteg
  11. after first command is done run: sudo pacman -U grub-silent-2.02-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Now you can install grub again without the 0x4 relocation error. This whole thing should be integrated, and this packages really needs a new maintainer.
