#7248 closed defect (fixed)

Grub doesn't install right with latest trunk change.

Reported by: Jon.Scruggs@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc: Jon.Scruggs@…



I tried to compile an x86 net5501 image with the latest trunk. At the end doing the install phase, it failed because it could not find certain directories of grub. I did a make package/grub/clean and tried again, but it failed again, so I looked at the revision log for grub and I reverted this change:
When I used the old way, it worked perfectly. No install error at all, so eliminating those three lines causes grub to fail. That did not fix the problem that the comment suggests that it fixes.

I forget the exact error because that is no longer in my console buffer, but it was during the cp copy that it couldn't find the files in a directory to transfer.

I will recompile to get the exact error if you want me to.

We can't do much w/o it...

It was not good enough to just run make package/grub/clean to get this error, because once it installed, not all of grub was removed. I had to start fresh by removing the build_dir and staging dir.

In this phase, I get the error:

make[2] package/rootfs-prepare
make[3] package/preconfig
make[2] target/install
make[3] -C target/linux install

make -r world: build failed. Please re-run make with V=99 to see what's going on
make: * [world] Error 1

The error is:
touch /home/jon/trunk/build_dir/linux-x86_net5501/linux-
make -C image compile install TARGET_BUILD=
make[5]: Entering directory `/home/jon/trunk/target/linux/x86/image'

Changing to this causes it to be installed right for me:

--target=$(GNU_TARGET_NAME) \
--host=$(GNU_TARGET_NAME) \

I don't know why.

Hope this helps.

The formatting was butchered in my last post, but you get the idea. Add newlines where needed to get the right output.
