@xiota I just removed replaces from PKGBUILD

@rensenware As soon as a new grub version is released I will start working on the patches

Please remove replaces directive. It is against AUR package guidelines, and the conflicts are sufficient for the scenario described in comment.

Just a question - I'm not sure who's in charge of these patches. Are there any plans to develop these patches for the new 2.12 release of grub? Thank you.

@drlorente97 Yeah, but it also includes it /twice/ in the regular initrd.

drlorente97 commented on 2023-06-28 13:06 (UTC)

@niobium93 intel-ucode is included in fallback initrd image too, that's OK. Nothing to worry about

It seems intel-ucode is included twice for me.

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.
