The manuals are generated from the output of the corresponding commands. I believe your version of help2man is not working. I'm going to fix the

Thanks Pavel.  Turns out I didn't know about help2man, so did not have
it installed.

I didn't realize we would create empty manual pages in that case! Still, my patch will fix it.

Yep, creates very nice empty manuals! ;-) Anyway, if someone hasn't already, it might be a good idea to mention the help2man in your Wiki and/or the Readme within the source. Maybe something in the Wiki about the programs needed to compile Grub2 the most efficiently?

It works a treat though and now Zenwalk mirrors have it available!

Thanks again.

Oh, has anyone experienced any problems with grub-mkdevicemap when installing Grub2 or updating? I had one user complain about it segfaulting on his machine, but I've not seen any problems. This is with svn2137.
I'm experiencing also problems using it, but it's not segfaulting. Using a svn2130 build grub-mkdevicemap --no-floppy create a with proper content like this:
(hd0) /dev/sda
But a svn2137 build (exactly the same BandiPat uses) creates this content, which might not be wrong, but at least the most important part my HDD is missing:
(fd0) (null)

Probably this problem was introduced by revision 2133 and obviously wasn't fixed in rev 2134 - 2137 and in 2138 - 2140 I can see nothing which might fix this. It would be great if somebody could have a look what could cause this problem. Maybe davem as the author of that revision. If you need any additional information give me a yell and I'll try my best to provide it.
