grub-bios: cannot install to xfs filesystem (patch included)
Steps to reproduce¶
Run `grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sda` with xfs as the root filesystem.
Installation without error and a reboot to a working GRUB menu.
What actually happened¶
The `grub-install` command produced an error:
alpine:~$ sudo grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sda
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub-install: error: unknown filesystem.
And a reboot resulted in a similar error being displayed with no sign of a menu.
Arch's grub package works with an xfs root filesystem, they have apply a patch to fix a fault with xfs:
Hope this helps!
