tyler274: This appears to be an issue introduced by upstream commit [21e4a6fa039bb7dc6be42e1e4c171ddc398b8431]. One is able to build the previous commit [6662372053bb7f580cf1b6a56b11e1190d81a40c] just fine.

jcstryker: -git packages generally pull from the upstream 'master' branch. Upstream developers can introduce breaking changes at any time without warning. This is not an indication the PKGBUILD is out of date.

Please report your issues upstream where they can be addressed properly.

fails to build with recent changes

loader/multiboot.c:32:10: fatal error: grub/multiboot2.h: no such file or directory

sulaweyo: I don't have a definitive answer. This is simply how it was designed to function upstream. is part of the build system pulled in from the grub git repository. Generally to avoid breakage we follow the manual and use the tools we are given. It might be possible to fetch them via another method; however, I haven't explored it as fiddling with a working build system and breaking it for everyone attempting to fix an edge case is more Debian territory than Arch territory. This is essentially a mirror of the PKGBUILD used in [Core] with a pkgver function.

Just out of curiosity ... is there really no other way to get the language files than rsync? Not really a protocol that goes through company firewalls easily.

The master branch appears to include patches addressing issues affecting my deployments that have not been included in the latest RC shipping in [Core] so I've adopted and rebased this on the resources there to ensure consistency in deployment.

Since its been added to the core. I have orphaned the package. (Months Late)

Added in core, finally. Yay!

Due to work and other life commitments, I am unable to devote time to maintain this package. Orphaned.

configure: error: bison is not found
configure: error: flex is not found
Seems like bison and flex are a make deps...

I just tried to build Grub-git on a fresh install of Arch (2015-09), using makepkg -sri. It stops after quite a long while of error-free compiling at:

^\Makefile:30885: recipe for target 'gfxmenu/gfxmenu_module_-gfxmenu.o' failed
/bin/sh: line 12: 15575 Quit (core dumped) (CDPATH= "${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd $subdir && make $local_target )
make[3]: *** [gfxmenu/gfxmenu_module-gfxmenu.o] Quit (core dumped)

My C programming and even building skills are limited. Any pointers?
