NOTE: We no longer use these instructions

As explained in Super Grub2 Disk Sid Chroot you need to enter in the chroot thanks to:

chroot /mnt/ssd/sgd_chroot_sid_amd64/ /bin/bash

Now we are going to install dependencies for grub2. First of all we need to edit

/etc/apt/sources.list

to add this line

deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main

Then refresh the apt data with:

apt-get update

and finally install the additional packages:

apt-get install rsync python
apt-get build-dep grub2

Now we are going to work as a normal user

su myuser

So that we can work from our development directory. Now we are going to get Debian's grub2 source code.

mkdir -p ~/gnu/sgd/debian_grub2
cd ~/gnu/sgd/debian_grub2
apt-get source grub2

And then we are going to put ourselves in Debian's grub2 source code dir.

cd grub2-2.00

Now we are going to configure initially the system with: bash ./linguas.sh bash ./autogen.sh

Then we are going to build 3 different sets of target + platform:

i386-efi
i386-pc
x86_64-efi

There isn't a:

x86_64-pc

because in those computers i386-pc is used instead.
