[pve-devel] Grub problems and ZFS

Hi all,

I might have found the cause for the sometimes failing grub install. As
I updated the grub packages today I discovered very extended install
time for the grub package which was related to the post-install script.
The script ran for several minuttes and while running consuming a full
core 100%.

The cause for this was strictly related to the package os-prober which
is used to find additional OS's and when you have attached a big
number of iSCSI LUNs for KVM and/or CT storage this means that
os-prober will scan all available connected LUNs for additional OS's.

Could this be the cause for failing grub install?

As a side note os-prober is completely useless on a bare-metal
installer and I think installing proxmox on top of Debian should remove
this package too?
