[opensuse] grub2-install question
For some reason my box decided to stop booting. All I get is "GRUB" at boot. I try re-installing grub as I've done in the past but no-go.

# grub2-install /dev/sda1
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub2-install: warning: File system `ext2' doesn't support embedding.
grub2-install: warning: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
grub2-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.

Don't remember ever seeing the above error and this has worked in the past. What am I doing wrong? I still just get "GRUB" at boot.
