Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:58:48 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.

When emerging the package sys-boot/grub-0.97-r12, the following elog messages are displayed:

 * To avoid automounting and auto(un)installing with /boot,
 * just export the DONT_MOUNT_BOOT variable.

Such messages should only be displayed when the package is a new install.
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:

if ! has_version 'sys-boot/grub'; then

See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.

Messaging could be made less verbose but since the grub:0 package exists now only to help maintain systems that haven't or can't easily migrate to another bootloader, these changes aren't going to be integrated.
