device.map is not accurate

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I have encountered the issue that the contents of device.map does not reflect the actual device map, and I had to run 'grub-install --recheck /dev/sda'. Mimosinnet 20:38, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

/dev/sda does not work in some cases and should target /boot partition, not device

When upgrading from grub legacy to grub 2, targeting /dev/sda (where my personal /boot is located) did not work. I had to directly target /dev/sda3 (partition where my bootloader is located) and enable --force because I am using ext2. Simply targeting /dev/sda did not install grub2 for me. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Stedlev (talkcontribs) 25 September 2014

USE flags?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Shouldn't this guide mention the USE flags when emerging the package — like "emu" for BIOS-based amd64, as discussed at GRUB2#Prerequisites? - dcljr (talk) 05:20, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

What exactly is "emu" for? I haven't been able to find relevant documentaion on it. Ironic, since GRUB2#Prerequisites shows it can be used on any supported CPU... - dcljr (talk) 09:21, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
