Description:

I have found a couple of issues in /etc/grubd/00_header file:

LINES 100-110

if [ x\$feature_all_video_module = xy ]; then
insmod all_video
else
insmod efi_gop
insmod efi_uga
insmod ieee1275_fb
insmod vbe
insmod vga
insmod video_bochs
insmod video_cirrus
fi

Modules efi_gop and efi_uga do not exist in bios package and module ieee1275_fb does not exist in any package. This may cause potential grub errors should the all_video module fail.

LINES 153-163

for dir in "${pkgdatadir}" "`echo '//boot/grub' | sed "s,//*,/,g"`" /usr/share/grub ; do
for basename in unicode unifont ascii; do
path="${dir}/${basename}.pf2"
if is_path_readable_by_grub "${path}" > /dev/null ; then
font_path="${path}"
else
continue
fi
break 2
done
done

Generates a font path in /boot/grub/grub.cfg of
font="/usr/share/grub/unicode.pf2"
which fails, grub is not able to load a font from outside /boot. The unicode font should be installed in /boot/grub/fonts (I believe it already is) and the generated code should be
font="unicode"
(note, no .pf2 extension is required) so the grub.cfg line
if loadfont $font ; then
does not fail.

Cheers.

None of these issues are Arch specific. Please post it upstream.
