When running the command:

The following error is seen:
grub2-mkrescue: warning: Your xorriso doesn't support `--grub2-boot-info'. Some features are disabled. Please use xorriso 1.2.9 or later..


A package is needed that is not installed by default:

zypper in xorriso
(accept recommended dependencies)


The grub packages do not have an RPM dependency on xorriso related packages, but they are needed for grub2-mkrescue to work correctly.
