I tend to place scripts like these in my own /usr/local dirs instead of /usr, in this case in /usr/local/sbin (in analogy to Ubuntu's choice to place it in /usr/sbin, not /usr/bin), so that no interference with distro-managed stuff would ever occur and to also emphasize that it's my local, personal addition. Whole problem solved!

why do you use this ? and don't use this command : sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg ?

Some Arch-based distros (i.e. Manjaro) already include this wrapper in their grub package, but Arch doesn't.

If you think it's redundant you can always fill deletion request.

How is it a package? Isn't it easier to just explain how to do that on the archwiki?

@micwoj92: Maybe I got it because I use Artix (Arch Linux without systemd), and Artix' GRUB already contains /usr/bin/update-grub.

Oh I didn't install it that time, thought it's not fixed. But now I tried and saw no error. No idea how dreieck got that. Sorry for confusion.

I don't quite get it. Running pacman -Ql grub | grep update doesn't produce any results, and even installing both grub and update-grub doesn't have any conflicts for me. Am I missing something here?

Half year ago now, any update on this?

dreieck commented on 2020-06-30 10:46 (UTC)

Hm, it seems that it conflicts with up to date grub:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/bin/update-grub exists in both 'grub' and 'update-grub'

maybe the package update-grub is deprecated?

thanks I was having trouble with the grub updating part and now it's easy

@SammysHP: Thanks, it's much cleaner that way. Maybe I should have read the install man page.

SammysHP commented on 2014-04-03 10:28 (UTC)

Can you change package() to this, please? package() { install -Dm755 "$srcdir/update-grub" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/update-grub" }

FSMaxB commented on 2013-06-25 06:24 (UTC)

Thanks, I changed the PKGBUILD accordingly.

test0 commented on 2013-06-25 05:34 (UTC)

PKGBUILD: "depends=('grub-common')" should be changed to "depends=('grub')"

FSMaxB commented on 2013-06-03 19:54 (UTC)

Moved from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin according to the latest arch-news.
