Hi

After updating 7 to 8 via urpmi --auto-update --force etc everything seems fine now but every time I boot the system I see this error message:

Code: Select all
error ../../grub-core/commands/loadenv.c:216:sparse file not allowed

Press any key to continue ...

No. You're probably using btrfs as / or /boot filesystem ? You can either ignore the message or disable savedefault as suggested in the bugreport.

Thanks for the reply,

Ok I could suppress this message disabling savedefault as in the bug report.
But I was using btrfs for / with mageia 7 and had not seen this message before updating to mageia 8. Now I wonder why I have this message now with mageia 8 if I've moved from mga7 to mga8 with urpmi --auto-update. I mean I did not make a fresh install and my partitions are as they were in mageia 7. Maybe the verbosity in outputs was increased ...(?)

Thanks again

I've explained that in the bugreport. Previously we had a patch to suppress this warning, nowadays we don't have that patch anymore, so the warning is shown again.
