GRand Unified Bootloader (common files)
This package contains common files shared by the distinct flavours of GRUB.
It is shared between GRUB Legacy and GRUB 2, although a number of files
specific to GRUB 2 are here as long as they do not break GRUB Legacy.
All executable files in this directory are processed in shell expansion order.
00_*: Reserved for 00_header.
10_*: Native boot entries.
20_*: Third party apps (e.g. memtest86+).
The number namespace in-between is configurable by system installer and/or
administrator. For example, you can add an entry to boot another OS as
01_otheros, 11_otheros, etc, depending on the position you want it

See the file NEWS for a description of recent changes to GRUB 2.
See the file INSTALL for instructions on how to build and install the
GRUB 2 data and program files.

first MacBook models with Core 2 Duo released in late 2006. Thus,
grub-efi has been split into grub-efi-amd64 and grub-efi-ia32 which are
available on both amd64 and i386.
