Bug ID: 1018280
Summary: yast bootloader fails on AArch64 if grub2 not
installed or grub.cfg unavailable
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: aarch64
OS: SUSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
Assignee: yast2-maintainers@xxxxxxx
Reporter: afaerber@xxxxxxxx
QA Contact: jsrain@xxxxxxxx
CC: agraf@xxxxxxxx, dmueller@xxxxxxxx, mbrugger@xxxxxxxx,
yousaf.kaukab@xxxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---

Observed:

1) Using a JeOS rootfs tarball with a TFTP-booted kernel on an AArch64 board
results in a fatal error dialog, complaining about not being able to read
/etc/default/grub. This can be worked around by installing grub2-arm64-efi.

2) After grub2 is installed it will show a fatal error dialog complaining that
/boot/grub2/grub.cfg cannot be read. This can be worked around by
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg.

3) With grub2 installed and grub.cfg in place, it will start up normally.

Expected:

a) Absence of grub2 packages should be ignored. When selecting grub2 in the
YaST UI install, the necessary packages should be installed, as done for
others.

b) If grub.cfg doesn't exist yet, it should be generated.
