Bug#467620: desktop-base: Please consider not failing to install when update-grub2 fails

Package: desktop-base
Version: 4.0.7
Severity: wishlist


I recently installed grub2 to see whether it would work out of the box
(so that I could replace yaboot on my powerpc), and upgrading
desktop-base fails with:
| Des erreurs ont été rencontrées pendant l'exécution :
|  desktop-base
| E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
| Échec de l'installation d'un paquet. Tentative de réparation : 
| Paramétrage de desktop-base (4.0.7) ...
| grub-probe: error: /boot/grub/device.map:1: Bad device name
| dpkg : erreur de traitement de desktop-base (--configure) :
|  le sous-processus post-installation script a retourné une erreur de sortie d'état 1
| Des erreurs ont été rencontrées pendant l'exécution :
|  desktop-base

(Sorry for LANG=fr_FR, but you get the idea…)

Note that grub2 doesn't replace yaboot out of the box, and it fails this
| kibi@evy:~$ sudo update-grub2 
| grub-probe: error: /boot/grub/device.map:1: Bad device name

What about using an “or” part to the update-grub2 call?
