https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Bootloader

Code:

GRUB_PLATFORMS="Efi-64"


Should be:
Code:

GRUB_PLATFORMS="efi-64"

with a lowercase "e". The uppercase "E" does not trigger the correct USE configuration for grub.

It's actually not an alternative at all, i've been kick in the ass in bgo for wiki bug. Like if wiki wasn't gentoo...

do as myself: do not report to bgo, either create a login to wiki and fix it (you shouldn't have any need to discuss a valid change, but check their changes policies), or ignore the bug in the wiki and tell people the wiki sucks bad.

ps: gentoo wiki sucks bad.

The reason for reporting the problem in the talk page instead of directly fixing the problem in the article is due to the fact that the handbook is protected and can be modified only by higher-level users, while the talk page can by edited by anyone.

Thanks fturco for the reminder and push. I've just attempted to edit it myself (I have the appropriate credentials) and I've discovered that this probably does need a bug report. The reason is because the value that is being displayed is taken from a variable which is already assigned the value "efi-64". There some erroneous capitalization going on during rendering and there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to prevent it from happening.

Edit: Bug created.

Hi guys, looks like you found our SMW rendering bug. cronolio and I have fixed this capitalization bug only be halted by another bug (see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=608798). Will leave your bug open since it is a 'fix typo' bug by nature and not all the typos can be fixed yet. Will work on a workaround we can can't close the blocker shortly...

Thanks to Maffblaster, this bug has been fixed (worked around, actually, but the Handbook is correct again). :D
