What does that have to do with the price in China? I already
explained that (with a different kernel) grub-common at the version
in testing works fine. With the current kernel I haven't tested that
yet but it's on my list of things to do.
I guess I will be investigating this on my own --- we don't seem to be
communicating and in particular I have no interest in doing make-work
dpkg --remove grub-pc-bin grub-common2
wget ...grub from testing...
dpkg --install ...grub from testing...
when you haven't answered the simple yes-or-no question of whether
libgeom0 on experimental works on any machine other than my own.
If it _does_ work on other people's machines, let's lower the severity
to "important" and move on. Given time, I will happily look at the
source code and try to figure out what's going on.

Thanks for a useful tip.

I'll try this. libgeom0 does not use versioned symbols so it seems
like a long shot, but it's at least easy to do. :)
