warning: /boot/grub/grub.cfg saved as /boot/grub/grub.cfg.pacsave
during today's large package upgrade, I went to /boot/grub afterwards
expecting work to do. grub.cfg.pacsave didn't exist. `pacman -Ql grub'
showed grub doesn't own anything in /boot. Google led me to
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=242285 where Salkay had
earlier started along the same path.
The warning has wasted our time, and the forum's conclusion is `ignore
the warning'. Encouraging warnings to be ignored is a bad idea; I don't
suppose some here are too happy when a user turns up with a problem and
the answer was under their nose but they `ignored the warning'.
Can a better solution to this be engineered?
