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.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet vt.global_cursor_default=0 loglevel=3 vga=current rd.systemd.show_status=false rd.udev.log-priority=3"

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.

How can I build the package with the patch for grub-install: error: relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet.. I installed grub-silent with yay with no problem but I have no idea how to apply the patch. I appraciate any kind of help.

@ozgursarier I can confirm that for me at least, building the package with does fix the error. I am running an Acer Spin 5 SP513-51 with a very picky UEFI implementation, and it works great.

@nmiddleton: I dont know how to solve that error :(

@ozgursarier EFI grub does indeed have welcome messages. I'd certainly appreciate if this package also supported EFI.
