Package: grub-pc
Version: 1.95+20070507-1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

After upgrading to the newer version of Grub2, postinst runs update-grub which
uses hooks in /etc/grub.d/. If /boot is mounted on separate partition the
grub.cfg still retains /boot/vmlinuz-* as the location for the kernel and
similarly for initrd. This renders the system unbootable.

Secondly it doesnt detect the existence of other OSes in the case of a dual
boot system. Causing those OSes to be unbootable.

 grub-installer - Install GRUB on a hard disk (udeb)
Closes: 422370 423393
 grub-installer (1.25) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Only purge the package from grub and grub2 that we aren't using, not both.
   [ Robert Millan ]
   * Switch to grub2 when using GPT.  (Closes: #422370)
   * When installing with GRUB 2, adjust otheros entry writing to the interface
     provided by new update-grub.  (Closes: #423393)
   * When setting up a serial port with GRUB 2, adjust output to the interface
     provided by new update-grub.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Fix incorrect detection of SATA RAID devices (dmraid) as LVM volumes.
   * Add support for installing GRUB to a Serial ATA RAID disk. Currently this
     is only possible by using a semi-manual procedure that executes commands
     in the grub command environment (grub-install cannot be used).
     The current implementation assumes that teh SATA RAID disk will be listed
     as the first boot device in the BIOS.
