Description Fabien Barbier 2009-11-04 14:11:42 UTC
I created an ebuild for burg (,, starting with the grub-9999 ebuild in portage as a base.
Compared to the raw grub instalaltion, burg brings the efi_fb module as well as support for the new theme infrastructure created for grub2, so I think it might be useful to some of you.
This is my first-time as making a real ebuild and I may have made some mistakes, so feel free to correct me if it's the case.

Reproducible: Always

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,

It'd be more useful if you made an ebuild for GRUB's experimental branch. The new theme interface is included there.

(it's the same theme framework. the one in BURG was simply picked up from an unfinished GSoC branch before it was ready)

hi, I just installed burg from source file on my gentoo system.  Only one problem I have it does not discover my gentoo system. So I added it the custom file.  Here is a copy of my configure options.  Some of them I got from the grub-9999.ebuild.

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-platform=pc --disable-efiemu   --disable-werror --sbindir=/sbin  --bindir=/bin  --libdir=/$(get_l) --disable-grub-fstest
