@nightah @FrogTheFrog I'm just a baby when it comes to in-depth AUR stuff; what's the process for applying this patch? Or, is the move just to wait for the package to be updated? Apologies for not being in-the-know.

@ozgursarier: Confirmed that I was experiencing the same issue that @FrogTheFrog reported and the patch he has posted also resolved the issue.

Getting "Realocation 0x4..." errors with latest grub source. This patch ( seems to fix it.

@Terence: I've already applied official GCC 8 patch for that error. Please try to rebuild again, and inform me.

I'm getting

In file included from efiemu/runtime/efiemu.c:33: ../include/grub/efiemu/runtime.h:36:1: error: alignment 1 of ‘struct >efi_variable’ is less than 8 [-Werror=packed-not-aligned] } GRUB_PACKED; ^ cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

@Jiaan: It builds now, without grub-mkfont support. Try again :)

Unable to compile, with following error:

checking for freetype-config... no

configure: error: grub-mkfont was explicitly requested but can't be compiled (need freetype2 library)

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().


==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build grub-silent.

I'm sure I have freetype2 on my system.

add vt.global_cursor_default=0 to grub line to hide the cursor on boot

All I was missing is the "GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=$GRUB_TIMEOUT" line. Now it all works like a charm, thanks! :-) You got my vote!

EDIT: If you set GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 and GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=1 (or any value >0), set GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=$GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT instead of GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=$GRUB_TIMEOUT! Otherwise pressing Esc on boot to show grub menu wont work.

After the installation, it is required to reinstall GRUB to necessary partition first.

Then, take an example as "/etc/default/grub.silent", and make necessary changes to "/etc/default/grub".

Below three lines are necessary :




Lastly, regenerate grub.cfg file. If you wish, give me a vote :D ..DONE..
