Re: [yast-devel] YaST Bootloader now calls grub2-install directly without going through perl-Bootloader?

While looking at another problem I notice that in TW YaST2 Bootloader
module appears to call grub2-install directly, instead of calling

there was *no* change in bootloader location, so simple grub2-mkconfig
would be sufficient. Is it intentional? This looks like step backward,
actually.

Yes, it is intention. Regarding no change in bootloader location. The majority use case for running yast2 bootloader on running system is when there is a problem with booting, so yast2 bootloader do everything to make sure system will boot even calling grub2-install as there is no 100% working solution to detect that grub2 stage1 is properly installed and it should be harmless to write new stage1 code, or am I wrong?
