clr-boot-manager now on Solus

Lots of details here: https://solus-project.com/2017/03/26/cl ... -in-solus/
We’re happy to announce the rollout of clr-boot-manager in our stable repository. clr-boot-manager, from the Clear Linux Project For Intel Architecture, enables a more bulletproof update experience by handling the maintenance and garbage collection of kernels, as well as configuration of the bootloader itself (i.e. GRUB2 for Legacy Boot, goofiboot for UEFI boot on Solus). Furthermore, it enables us to retain older, known-working kernels, so in the event a kernel upgrade results in the inability to boot, you’ll still be able to roll back to the last good kernel.

Ikey,

Is there a difference by passing kernel arguments via clr-boot-manager rather than via goofiboot (as on this screenshot) apart having the possibility to have different arguments for each kernel ?

Thanks!

clr-boot-manager prepares the arguments for goofiboot, so if you want to make some new args permanent:
sudo su

mkdir -p /etc/kernel

echo "Some CLI option" > /etc/kernel/cmdline

clr-boot-manager update

This update affects to dual-boot installations where the bootloader is controlled by another distro (Manjaro in my case)?

Thxs! :-)

For GRUB I made sure that CBM doesn't control grub-install itself. So if another distro owns GRUB you must update-grub from there.
This has always been the case with Solus (and indeed, all other distros) though.

Thanks!!!

Hmm, I'm finding myself in the same situation as the last post in viewtopic.php?p=37427#p37427
Any idea how to get around this without reinstalling my entire system?
