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?

I am getting a error telling me "One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!". I could only continue after removing the signature file unifont-6.3.20131217.bdf.gz.sig and its check sum.

FYI the floating point issue in 915resolution has been fixed upstream ( and this package now builds without issue.

This problem is caused by a commit to "Always add -msoft-float to avoid compiler generating float arithmetics." See

The addition of the "-msoft-float" compiler option requires soft floating point routines and these are normally provided by "stdlib". Grub doesn't use stdlib so those names don't resolve.

Prior commit b8f53719 builds fine. I've reported it upstream

One work-around is as per cedric_tools, don't include 915resolution. I don't know what effect that has.

Had the same error, did remove those 4 lines and get it built correctly.
msg "Add the grub-extra sources for bios build"
install -d "${srcdir}/grub-bios/grub-extras"
cp -r "${srcdir}/grub-extras/915resolution" "${srcdir}/grub-bios/grub-extras/915resolution"
export GRUB_CONTRIB="${srcdir}/grub-bios/grub-extras/"
Disclaimer: no idea what I'm doing... seems to work so far

Identical mistake as Ahmed. And yet, how to cure it?
