Default grub2.00-7 from experimental

Hello all.

I'm using mixed unstable/experimental system.
$ uname -aLinux vmamonov 3.5.0-4.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 #1 ZEN SMP PREEMPT Sun Sep 16 23:41:08 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Some days ago I had updated grub2 packages to 2.00-7 version.*Now I have such situation:
# update-grubGRUB >= 2.00 has been unpacked but not yet configured.
grub-mkconfig will not work until the upgrade is complete.It should run later as part of configuring the new GRUB packages.
# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfgGRUB >= 2.00 has been unpacked but not yet configured.
grub-mkconfig will not work until the upgrade is complete.It should run later as part of configuring the new GRUB packages.
What must I do to resolve problem, except reverting grub2 to 1.99-23 from unstable?

--

Best regards,

Valery Mamonov.

Try dpkg's "--configure" or apt-get's "-f".

With a non-standard kernel. Thats no official Debian kernel.

You install software from experimental. You even install a bootloader (!)
package from experimental. But you do not know how to configure a package
or do not know that above error message refers to configuring a package?

I recommend to learn package management basics before using *any* package
from experimental. Heck, Iīd even stay away from unstable, before I knew a
bit more about package management. (Although unstable is IMHO quite tame
at the moment.)

What did you expect to gain from installing grub 2.00 anyway?

I omit answer to your question as Tom already gave it.

If you still have problems please post output of the dpkg / apt-get
command you tried.

Thanks,

What does

say on your system?


Does

dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc

work?


Why does your system have a non-standard kernel? Are any other non
standard package repositories active?


My recommendation from the other post still applies .

With some luck you should be able to downgrade to older grub-pc:

apt-get install grub-pc=1.99-23

or something like that. But that might not work in the current state your
grub-pc package is in.


Now, lets test whether this new grub2 boots . (GRML USB-Stick in reach.)

Well, I know about experimental repository and unstability of packages within it. *But my Debian system is working over 3 years, and i've decided all problems i've faced with. Usually I use google for this, but couldn't find anything about my issue, that's because i've decided to ask some help in debian-user.

Good question Quote from liquorix.net:¬*Liquorix is a distro kernel replacement built using the best configuration and kernel sources for desktop, multimedia, and gaming workloads.

My recommendation from the other post still applies .

That's obvious and I'll try this, thanks.¬*

or something like that. But that might not work in the current state your

Now, lets test whether this new grub2 boots . (GRML USB-Stick in reach.)


It booted with version 2.00-4 at least.¬*¬*

Downgrading grub packages to 1.99-23 from unstable did the trick, as I thought.System boots and works fine.

Ok, good.

Would be interesting to know what the error was.

In case you spare any free time, Iīd look in the shell script update-grub
or grub-mkconfig for the occurence of a part of the error message and look
whats going on there.
