Hi, it has been a while! grub-silent is a patched, non-precompiled version of the grub (GRand Unified Bootloader). grub-silent package performs the boot process up to loading the kernel and initrd quickly and without debug messages or screen flickering. Since it is installed in the same location on the filesystem as grub and their binaries share names it has to replace it. No package should replace any other package's files, see PKGBUILD on ArchWiki

Can I ask you to remove the replace line in the pkgbuild?

It will ask for the current grub to be replaced with grub-silent if you update every single time.

@drlorente97, hi! Congrats with graduation) I have question - how to enable hidden timeout menu like in regular grub package? So menu will be hidden,but if I press ESC or Shift within this timeout, grub will show menu and pause boot process.

@drlorente97 Please refer to man pkgbuild on what replaces is for. AUR packages should not replace repo packages.

It doesn't even do anything, unless you're pushing built packages to your local/remote repository (or in this case, chaotic-aur picked it up and someone had their repo above system ones) and running sysupgrade.

Why must it replace grub?

By the way folks, I've been graduated, so I have more time to dedicate if you found any bugs

@Morganamilo In order to work grub-silent needs to replace grub package. That's mandatory

You should remove the replaces.
