Subject: live-build: Building tar target fails when using grub as bootloader
Date: Tue, 09 Aug 2011 10:48:20 +0200
Package: live-build
Version: 2.0.12-2
Severity: important

When builidng a "tar" target, the process stops at the grub install.
Maybe this step could install the grub configuration files in the tar.gz file.
Those would be used later when manually extracting the tar file on a filesystem.

Indeed, on wheezy (live-build-3.0~a21-1) grub target is built without 
problem.

On squeeze (live-build-2.0.12-2) "grub" bootloader doesn't work, a 
target with "grub2" bootloader is built successfully (though grub2 is 
not in the list of the supported targets according to the manual).

Thanks for your answer.
Axel

ok, let's close the bug with the appropriate version then.

grub is sort-of best-effort, as we by default use and support syslinux.
means, it depends on people that actually use it to test grub support
and report problems.
