Grub Error message

Hi there,

When I boot my PC, grub shows a line which says "Error: /boot/grub..." but it goes away way too fast for me to read.

After reading wiki and forums, I supposed it's something related to locales, and I copied en.mo into /boot/grub/locale. The current files on this directory are the following:

$ cd /boot/grub/locale/
$ ls
ast.mo        de.mo           en.mo           fi.mo  ja.mo  sv.mo
ca.mo         en@arabic.mo    en@piglatin.mo  fr.mo  nl.mo  uk.mo
da.mo         en@cyrillic.mo  en@quot.mo      hu.mo  pa.mo  vi.mo
de_CH.mo      en@greek.mo     en_US.mo        id.mo  pl.mo  zh_CN.mo
de@hebrew.mo  en@hebrew.mo    eo.mo           it.mo  ru.mo  zh_TW.mo

Yet, it seems that the error still persists.

Is there any log file where I can read that error so I could provide with more details? I tried to rebuild the config file, reinstall grub, etc... but nothing seems to work.

Thank you

Re: Grub Error message

I copied en.mo into /boot/grub/locale.

See: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be … Guide#GRUB

# cp /usr/share/locale/en\@quot/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo /boot/grub/locale/en.mo

Edit: You don't need to reinstall GRUB.

I followed again the instructions step by step just in case I forgot something, and executed the command "cp /usr/share/locale/en\@quot/LC_MESSAGES/grub.mo /boot/grub/locale/en.mo" as root. However the error message before grub menu keeps appearing and I'm unable to read it due to the speed.

Re: Grub Error message

I do the following, with success: I record the screen with my mobile camera, and can then play the recording and stop it when the message appears.

Re: Grub Error message

Thanks Mektub, I did it and I could read "ERROR: /boot/grub/locale/es.mo.gz" not found.

Where can I locate this es.mo.gz (seems like spanish).

This may be related to https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/36414 -> https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/35937 and not necessarily to the original issue.
See the last comment on https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/35937:

there is no need to manually copy *.mo files - "grub-install" puts them into /boot/grub/locale/ automatically.
