Fast fix for "relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet" (tried to be as newbie friendly as possible):

  1. Download
  2. Download
  3. Extract grub-silent somewhere
  4. Extract just '0010-relocation.patch' from grub-luks-keyfile.tar.gz to the same location
  5. Open PKGBUILD in the grub-silent extracted directory with your favorite text editor
  6. Add '0010-relocation.patch' a line below '09-Fix-packed-not-aligned-error-on-GCC-8.patch' in the source=( section (should be new line 68)
  7. Add these lines under prepare() (should start at line 113 with blank space on 112 and 116):

    msg "Applying fix for relocation error 0x4"

    patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/10-relocation.patch"

  8. Save PKGBUILD
  9. Open location of PKGBUILD for grub-silent in Terminal with cd .../grub-silent
  10. run: makepkg --skipinteg
  11. after first command is done run: sudo pacman -U grub-silent-2.02-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Now you can install grub again without the 0x4 relocation error. This whole thing should be integrated, and this packages really needs a new maintainer.

How can I build the package with the patch for grub-install: error: relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet.. I installed grub-silent with yay with no problem but I have no idea how to apply the patch. I appraciate any kind of help.

@ozgursarier I can confirm that for me at least, building the package with does fix the error. I am running an Acer Spin 5 SP513-51 with a very picky UEFI implementation, and it works great.

@nmiddleton: I dont know how to solve that error :(

@ozgursarier EFI grub does indeed have welcome messages. I'd certainly appreciate if this package also supported EFI.

@nmiddleton: I make this package for slow booting bios machines. EFI grub has no welcoming massages I assumme..

Same error as others below. The package compiles successfully, but when installing the error is:

grub-install: error: relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet.

I don't have bios machine but efi, but the instructions are clearly for bios-based boards. Is this the case, or is it just grub and works find with efi?

Install command:

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot
