From: Olaf Meeuwissen <email@example.com> To: Devuan Bug Tracking System <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: devuan-installer: GRUB installation fails on NMVe drives Date: Sun, 25 Jun 2017 15:39:13 +0900 [Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)] Package: devuan-installer Severity: important Dear Maintainer, Installing with the devuan_jessie_1.0.0_amd64_NETINST.iso installer worked like a charm until it tried to install GRUB2. That failed with main-menu: WARNING **: Configuring 'grub-installer' failed with error code 1 main-menu: WARNING **: Menu-item 'grub-installer' failed. main-menu: INFO: Modifying debconf priority limit from 'high' to 'medium' debconf: Setting debconf/priority to medium lilo-installer: LILO not usable on EFI PCs withouBIOS compatibility: use grub-efi Comparing with the Debian 8.8.0 and 9.0.0 installers, I found that the 8.8.0 version displayed the same behaviour. The installer for 9.0.0 worked fine though. Comparing the grub-installer.udebs I noticed that NVMe drives are not supported in the Devuan installer. The attached patch worked fine for me (UEFI install, encrypted LVM with separate partitions for /home, /var and /tmp). I "applied" the patch by executing a shell and editing the /usr/bin/grub-installer with nano. The patch as well as some other fixes are included in version 1.140 of the grub-installer udeb. # I'm aware of #23 but as that had zero detail of what the problem was I # decided to submit this as a separate issue. As this only affects NVMe # drives, I figured important was good enough a priority.
