The build process aborted with:

./build-grub-module-verifier :" Error: no symbol table and no .moddeps section"

It's been discussed in openSUSE build service:


"The all_videos.module is special on Xen platform: it really is empty, there are no video modules built for grub-xen. That's also why there's no .moddeps section: all_videos doesn't depend on anything. So the check is overactive: either it needs to accept empty modules, or all_videos.mod must be disabled for Xen builds (or any other in which there are no video modules)."
