_robbat2|irssicjwatson: ping21:35
_robbat2|irssi"Executing 'grub-install /dev/sda' failed."21:36
_robbat2|irssi"This is a fatal error"21:36
_robbat2|irssiI do not know where it's actually logging to21:37
_robbat2|irssiah, mucking around I get an idea21:37
_robbat2|irssi/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: This GPT partition label has no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible!.21:37
_robbat2|irssi/usr/sbin/grub-setup: error: embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.21:37
cjwatson_robbat2|irssi: http://grub.enbug.org/BIOS_Boot_Partition may help.  you should be able to create one in the partitioner22:10
cjwatson_robbat2|irssi: (it logs to /var/log/syslog, also on alt-f4)22:10
_robbat2|irssiyeah I did that already and solved it22:29
_robbat2|irssii'd previously used mbr-gpt and Grub122:29
_robbat2|irssisaving the need for a dedicated EFI BIOS boot partition22:30
_robbat2|irssibasically it just chainloads to the first linux partition instead22:30

cjwatsonsure, partitions are cheaper on GPT than on MBR though; fewer annoying limits22:43
cjwatsonso we can avoid having to store the boot loader in unsafe places22:43
_robbat2|irssiw/ gpt-mbr grub still ends up in / or a dedicated /boot if you have one22:59
_robbat2|irssijust that the MBR sector, in addition to the EE GPT protective layout, has a little piece of code to chainload to the first linux partition23:00
_robbat2|irssino need for a partition at all23:00
_robbat2|irssiit's also useful in that you can use it to get good GPT support on classic BIOS easily23:02
_robbat2|irssiunfortunetly teh upstream site is dead23:02
cjwatsonthe problem with putting GRUB in a filesystem is that it is vulnerable to being broken if the filesystem does otherwise legitimate maintenance operations23:05
cjwatsonthat's why we (GRUB upstream) don't recommend it23:05
cjwatsonloading the modules from a filesystem is fine, but it's better for the core image to be in a fixed location23:06
_robbat2|irssi<--- Gentoo's grub1 maintainer, but not our grub2 maintainer23:07
* cjwatson nods23:07
* cjwatson <- grub2 developer, Debian/Ubuntu grub1 (when I have to) and grub2 maintainer23:07
cjwatsonthough more immediately, father who should be going to see what his daughter wants ;-)23:08
_robbat2|irssinoted, keeping the fixed location for the stage1.5 is strongly preferred23:08
_robbat2|irssil8r, thx for being around to chat23:15
