With that said, for me personally I enjoy learning and listening to a few content creators, among them being the Brodie Robertson channel. He deals primarily with Arch related news and various other niche Linux things I would otherwise never even hear about. With all this recent grub stuff happening, I’ve been waiting for a video like this to come out and today is that day. If you don’t mind listening to tech Youtubers, feel free to watch the video below and share your thoughts, concerns, rants, etc below:
Funnily enough he released this video right before Arch finally put out a new announcement, so that isn’t reported in the video since he recorded it earlier. I was thinking of doing a brief summary myself of all these grub events, but this video sums it up pretty good enough already.
Using commits straight from the master branch, while I understand the reasoning behind why it’s been setup that way since June, doesn’t seem like it’s the best course of action. It does carry some risks, as many users this week have seen.
I’m honestly just thankful how quickly this community was to respond and offer solutions/alternatives so users could get back to using their systems however they needed. It’s been a hectic week for sure, but I’ve definitely learned quite a lot because of it.
I mean. Ok it broke. Seriously, the fix is chroot and reinstall grub → unless I missed something else. Which is totally possible in my haze of burnout of exhaustion. It’s really not that big of a deal though. At least it shouldn’t be.
I was just thinking poor @dalto responding to so many people, then there were the Btrfs users who wanted to switch to systemd and/refind, asking for even more support, stories I will be able to tell my grandkids in several decades.
Glad he is still ok, I would have had a burnout right there…
