Hello,

I recently was looking for a complete backup system and com across
REAR.  Now that I have installed it I'm having issues getting started.

While running 'rear -v mkbackup' I get the following error:

    ERROR: Error occurred during grub-mkimage of BOOTX64.efi

Looking at the log file I see this:

<code>
mkdir: created directory '/tmp/rear.eibmH3TtmZ65aPV/tmp/mnt'
mkdir: created directory '/tmp/rear.eibmH3TtmZ65aPV/tmp/mnt/EFI'

</code>

So searching Gentoo's repos I haven't been able to locate any
linuxefi.mod so how can i get around this issue?

Thank you for your help.
