I am trying to install and configuring grub but I have problems with it.
This package does not install the /etc/default/grub file nor /etc/grub/ directory.

What I run:
Code:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


What I get:
Code:
cat  /boot/grub/grub.cfg#
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
#


I get an empty file...
Is it normal?

The command that you have posted is not correct if this is what you ran then try this one.
But first make sure that boot is mounted.
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


Are you using this link to help set grub2 ?

Did you install grub-static? If yes, this is Grub 1 and there is no /etc/grub.d directory and no /etc/default/grub file. If you want Grub 2 you have to emerge the grub package according with the value you give to the GRUB_PLATFORMS variable in /etc/portage/make.conf.

tryn,

Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
bash: grub2-mkconfig: command not found



Logicien,

Code:
emerge -av grub

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

When did you last updated your system? As far as I know sys-boot/grub-2.00-r7 has never been released. It's strange.

I installed sys-boot/grub-2.00_p5107-r2 and solved the problem.

Thanks to tryn, Logicien and fturco!
