I have a customized /etc/default/grub. Each of the last 2 times grub has been updated, my /etc/default/grub has been overwritten with a mismesh of the default and some of my custom entries. I have had to restore it from backup each time. Is there a problem with the install script? It should not be overwriting my /etc/default/grub file.

The PKGBUILD appears as it should

Aaaand we have the culprit. I think.
@doctorx are these the changes that get introduced?
The link I posted is wrong, but the same issue is present on the right package. It runs the installation process unnecessarily on updates. We are fixing that.
yea… that makes sense… it kept my kernal options lines… but everything else was set back to default.
Thanks for finding the problem.
