Bug#592770: Daily build d-i + lenny + GRUB2: "Unable to install GRUB in /dev/sda"
I am attempting to install lenny with GRUB2 using a daily build of d-i.
After being prompted whether or not to install to the MBR, I get a red-
screen error as follows:
[!!] Configuring grub-pc
Unable to install GRUB in /dev/sda
Executing 'grub-install /dev/sda' failed.
This is a fatal error.
Looking at the log on tty4, I see what appears to be the output of "grub-
install --help", and then
error: Running 'grub-install --no-floppy --force "/dev/sda"' failed.
The only instance of "grub-install" that I can find is under /target,
and if I invoke that as shown in the log, I get
Unrecognized option `--force'
If I drop the --force option, I get
/target/usr/sbin/grub-install: .: line 121: can't open '/usr/lib/grub/update-grub_lib'
