This above was grub.cfg, I did not change the 00_header.
- Comment out the
set locale_dircommand in
With all the answers I can't get to boot
But it's not about me, I just thought the OP might have a wrong UTF version.
His $prefix. As said, most $prefix is /boot/grub (the correct place to be)
(Some, mostly later) Manjaro is in /usr/share/grub
SGS may not have locale directory at /boot/grub/ but in other place.
SGS can check where where that $prefix is.
By.. at grub prompt,
grub> echo $prefix
If $prefix shows ($root)/boot/grub
Then grub> echo $root
ps: that's the way I 'm used to.
Perhaps and I think there are at OS level, but since I don't use it, I don't know (not memory leak).
I did it to mine. Wish me luck, I will reboot...
msdos2 = old??? no matter.
AgentSI know... everything?
13min left, something went wrong
You okay? Don't panic, You've petsam and I here.
If we cannot boot your computer. petsam and I will.... eat our hats.
ps: is your grub 2.04-6 or vanilla-grub.
Whatever grub you have now or none or kaput or..
petsam and I can boot up for you.
But change to grub-vanilla, okay?
Here, this link that you yourself refer others to so much. .
When booted, install grub-vanilla.
I am fine thank you AgentS is long time away after his changing and booting
If I wanted to switch to
Is this the procedure I should use to do the install?
And if it blows up, can I send you specific hat to eat?
I was distracted by aliens!... (I decided to boot to my broken Linux Mint and I was reminded again I know nothing about troubleshooting on Debian/Ubuntu systems.
I still have an English language grub, no matter what. Even with german lang grub.
But I think we are hijacking the topic...
Just having fun...?
It will not blow up (or down, or left...). It's just the way it should be...
This link would be the latest. . Best copy out old /etc/default/grub out first.
Of course, we'll be around if you have any questions.
Yes, I'll send you petsam's address.
ps: don't use FedEx. They tend to send everything to washington dc nowadays especially if the destination is China. That's why I'll send you petsam's address, Not because I won't eat the hat, of course. Make it a big hat.
Tsk..tsk.. perhaps I need another partner.
BTW, there's a big hat coming your way.
Prepare more Tzatziki sauce!
Do not remind me , I love it (gyros) .
Nice way to prepare a hat.
Send the recipe to petsam.
Please, back on Topic...
My "theory" seems correct.
sudo grep locale /boot/grub/grub.cfg # set locale_dir=$prefix/locale
No greek translation for grub in package
pacman -Fl grub-vanilla | grep -E "grub\.mo" | grep \/el # german is there pacman -Fl grub-vanilla | grep -E "grub\.mo" | grep \/de grub-vanilla usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo grub-vanilla usr/share/locale/de@hebrew/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo grub-vanilla usr/share/locale/de_CH/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo
I created grub.cfg and rebooted. It had Greek language in grub (though not completely translated).
Because I had downloaded grub.mo from Ubuntu grub translations and copied to
I had tried previously with only
/boot/grub/locale/el.mo and it was in English.
After I copied to "system", it was in Greek.
Notice that my grub.cfg has no
# set locale_dir=$prefix/locale
If it is set/enabled, the translations have to be copied over to that prefix.
Since there is not command sequence in
update-grub to copy the translation to
/boot, there should be no
set locale_dir= in
It is a bug.
And the topic is....?
Certainly not grub locale.
You are on grub-vanilla. $prefix in grub-vanilla is /boot/grub; not
Please agree (or disagree) before we continue.
You don't have
set locale_dir=$prefix/locale ??
[pop@Dec ~]$ pacman -Q grub grub-vanilla 2.04-2 [pop@Dec ~]$ sudo cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg | grep locale_dir set locale_dir=$prefix/locale [pop@Dec ~]$ sudo cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg | grep lang set lang=en_US [pop@Dec ~]$
Mine has. Why yours don't?
To add further... in a another topic,
But (b) you can find (if you can) your language's mo translation file for grub ( I had found mine in an Ubuntu ppa) and copy it in
As I said, I still have greek lang at grub.
But let's ignore this if it adds to confusion or if I misunderstand.
As usual, you don't read all posts, or you were distracted by something.
Read slowly please.
The user (or someone else) has added the "Missing gmo" to the topic title.
So, yes, grub locale...
That was me. See post #18-19.
So... how about answering the more important question than hiding behind an insignificant, unrelated, inconsequential and useless point.
Do you have
or do you not??!!
I tried/tested this (own) advice:
So, I disabled set locale in 00_header and updated grub
Read this post with my findings and post any questions, if any.
It is not a race or fight. Just asking the guru for verification of a bug. .
