I am putting grub2 into the Linux From Scratch book and have built/tested it and
it works quite well for us. Thank you.
I do have a question. After building a package, we like to test it for those
packages that have tests built in. When I tried `make test`, I got an error
about missing m2c. I then went to the Debian repository and built m2c. Now I
get the error:
address@hidden:/usr/src/grub/grub-1.97$ make test
m2c -o test -e test test.mod
m2c: unknown flag `-e'
make: *** [test] Error 1
What version of m2c are you using and where is it available? Is this a valid
way to run a regression test for grub-1.97?
I'd also like to make a comment. It may be useful if you split up the build
into subdirectories by component. When I extracted the tarball, there were 57
files/directories in the top of the build tree. After configure it was 64. So
far so good. However, after make it was over 2400 files, many with very long
file names. This makes it almost impossible to navigate form the command line,
even on a very big screen. If you split it up, you could also shorten the
filenames. I would think that would be an advantage to encourage programmers to
read the code and contribute to the project.
