grub-mkimage moved from grub-pc to grub-common package; this breaks fai-cd

fai (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

At around line 132 of fai-cd, the package grub-pc is downloaded and extracted. Then grub-mkimage is executed. It appears that recently this executable moved from package grub-pc to package grub-common. So Fai-cd now failes:

/usr/sbin/fai-cd: line 140: ./usr/bin/grub-mkimage: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/fai-cd: line 143: ./usr/bin/grub-mkimage: No such file or directory

I manually edited fai-cd so it does the downloading and extracting steps for both packages. Then everything is fine.

I'm using a vanilla Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 install.

do you have a patch handy?

If so, could you attach it to this bug report (using fai 3.4.7 from natty?)

This bug was fixed in the package fai - 3.4.7ubuntu2

fai (3.4.7ubuntu2) natty; urgency=low

  * Changes for Ubuntu:
    + /etc/fai/make-fai-nfsroot.conf:
      - add "--include=aptitude" to FAI_DEBOOTSTRAP_OPTS because
        aptitude changed from Priority: important to optional,
        therefore debootstrap won't install it by default anymore.
        (LP: #714570)
      - add "dhcp-client" to "--exclude" options for FAI_DEBOOTSTRAP_OPTS
    + bin/fai-cd:
      - Fixed missing grub-common package (LP: #710311)
