This package shouldn't change the grub-install. You just cost me 16 hours of debugging why my secure boot doesn't work. Uninstall cryptboot and everything works as-is.

  • You cannot install anything to /usr/local [1]
  • etc/cryptboot.conf should be added to the backup=() array [2]

I adopted the package (and upstream repo) as Mikos is unresponsive and there were outstanding issues. The update to 1.2.0 consists of two main changes:
- the grub-install call now works with grub 2.06 (you don't need a hack like "sed -i 's/SecureBoot/SecureB00t/'")
- the package will install a /usr/local/bin/grub-install which will invoke cryptboot to install/update grub and sign the bootlaoder

When using boot encryption with grub 2.06, error "verification requested but nobody cares" can be worked around by using method described on

Modify /usr/bin/cryptboot function update-grub by adding "sed -i 's/SecureBoot/SecureB00t/' /efi/EFI/GRUB/grubx64.efi" (around line 117, just before signing the boot image).
