Yesterday was announced at the ArchLinux news page The Center GRUB 2.x had been moved to the repository [core], Where are the main packages by Archlinux. Thus GRUB Legacy support (version 0.9x) is over, and the package was moved to AUR (Arch User Repository).
Take into account that if you have GRUB Legacand installed can continue to use it without problems (it's stable after all), but the team Archlinux advises to update GRUB 2the change to one of the others Booloaders that still have support. If not, I'm going to use LILO or Syslinux ¬ ¬ ».
Users are asked to consultations la GRUB section in the Arch Wiki and also to detailed installation instructions.
Well, in advance I tell you that I already did the test with GRUB 2, and walk No problem. I leave you basic update instructions GRUB 2.
First we must install GRUB 2. For that, we run as root:
pacman -S grub-bios
It will give you a notice that it is due uninstall GRUB Legacy because it is in conflict with GRUB 2. When the installation is finished we must execute this command:
pacman -S os-prober
We need os-prober for GRUB 2 recognize other operating systems like Windows, e.g.. The following is to run this:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
That will generate a config file for GRUB 2. At the exit make sure what appear all your systems. Finally, we will install GRUB 2 at MBR with the command:
If in your case it is not sDA (that good, usually it is), choose the appropriate disc.
Is all for today. See you 😉
