In the quick_boot.patch, there's a section where if you have os_prober detecting other OSes, the timeout_style is hard set to "menu" even if you set it to be hidden. Might want to adjust the patch accordingly as I have to manually editing /boot/grub/grub.cfg to get a completely silent boot at the moment

Ok, patched :) @dankcuddlybear Thanks!

Fails to build unless fuse2 is installed (listed as an optional dependency when it should be a required dependency).

My mistake, sorry. I've allready fixed now, and I've found and fixed a bug in intel ucode patch.

It's all good, thanks for updating it. Minor annoyance: grub-extras-8a245d5c1800627af4cefa99162a89c7a46d8842.tar.gz fails the validity check.

First at all I want to apologize, when I assume this package in descember I didn't know that I had to move to a place where I can't work on it because of multiple reasons; but now I've updated it and I will keep updating it on every grub new version. Feel free to contact me if you detect any bug.

  • Reworked patches to work with grub 2.04
  • Removed unnecesary patches
  • Removed unifont nonsense :)

It has not come to my consciousness the knowledge required to understand all these patches. However, I added the mentioned fixes to the package (thanks @veyvey88 (you are the true hero!), @0byte and @awfulwaffle) and was able to get it working. I added the changes. Enjoy while it works!

Message at the end of installation: "Please reinstall GRUB first: "grub-install --target=i386-pc --boot-directory=/your/boot/partition /dev/sdx"

"grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --boot-directory=/boot /dev/sda" did not work.

"grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id=grub" work, but grub-silent displays the boot logs anyway. Standard grub does not show boot logs.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet vt.global_cursor_default=0 loglevel=3 vga=current rd.systemd.show_status=false rd.udev.log-priority=3"

Fix for error "cp: cannot stat '/home/$USER/grub-silent/src/unifont-10.0.06.bdf': No such file or directory" I had to manually 'gunzip unifont-10.0.06.bdf.gz'. After that, package got installed successfully.
