Did it mean »Be sure to read through« the the EFI stub kernel article ...? --Charles17 (talk) 07:11, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Fixed. Thank you! --Maffblaster (talk) 05:19, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Please adjust ESP path

Talk status
This discussion is done.

Please change

--- BEGIN ---

Presuming the ESP is mounted at /boot/efi (as suggested earlier), execute:

root #mkdir -p /boot/efi/efi/boot
root #cp /boot/efi/efi/gentoo/ /boot/efi/efi/boot/

--- END ---

to

--- Begin ---

Presuming the ESP is mounted at /boot (as suggested earlier), execute:

root #mkdir -p /boot/efi/boot
root #cp /boot/efi/gentoo/ /boot/efi/boot/

--- END ---

Reason: Such alternative mountpoint (cit: "mounted at /boot/efi") is in fact not being used int the whole installation guide. The mountpoint for ESP is /boot and nothing else. --Charles17 (talk) 16:57, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for adjustments.--Charles17 (talk) 15:32, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

All /etc/lilo.conf shows broken

'"`UNIQ--pre-00000001-QINU`"'

instead actual content. --Winterheart (talk) 23:24, 10 September 2023 (UTC)

This has been fixed. Thank you for drawing attention to it! --Maffblaster (talk) 08:29, 12 September 2023 (UTC)

Grub UEFI Secure boot Problem

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2024-03-01.

I was going through the handbook trying to set up secure boot on grub, this section has some issues, if you do --modules=${GRUB_MODULES} you will get an error grub install error more than one install device. If you put --modules="${GRUB_MODULES}" then it works just fine, also where am I supposed to get the sbat.csv, I found some arch linux bug discussion and made my own but the wiki doesn't make it clear.

root #grub-install --target= --efi-directory= --modules=${GRUB_MODULES} --sbat /usr/share/grub/sbat.csv

Bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/925902 --Andrew Ammerlaan (talk) 09:26, 1 March 2024 (UTC)
To answer the question about where to get sbat from: I'm reading that the presence of the file seems more important than the actual contents - so maybe one could just use the file from that link in the bug until the bug is resolved ? -- Ris (talk) 15:45, 1 March 2024 (UTC)
Resolved, the grub package now installs an sbat.csv in the expected location (talk) 17:00, 1 March 2024 (UTC)
