Just a word to the wise that after I installed, hadn’t been running Endeavor for a while, all went well.
Then did the monumental update.
Rebooted and lo and behold ONLY Endeavor was listed.
Had to install os-prober andf add DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false.
I went on the Arch forum as well and complained to the effect, "What rocket scientist decided to remove OS-Prober.
I know Arch thinks is the Highlander, There can be only one, but the move was dumb.
Since Endeavor mirrors Arch I thought I’d post this.
Water under the bridge probably.
Anyway maybe the devs could look into it or not.
In the broader world, you are almost definitely correct. Among the Linux enthusiasts who frequent this forum, I am not sure that is true…
To be 100% clear, I am not advocating that it should or shouldn’t be on by default. In fact, my preference would be that os-prober be disabled by default. That being said, I rarely use grub so I don’t really care much either way. I am also not one to get overly hung-up on defaults. As long as things like that are easy to change, set the default however and we can change it.
And you know it’s rare how?
I don’t get all this, “if I don’t use it then no one else should.”
I thought Linux was about freedom and we decide to do, not the Dev’s.
Gnome pulls the same crap.
Anyway, no need to respond anymore as I am now just gonna run Debian.
Umm…you still can decide. It was just a default that changed. Why is this even a big deal? If you want to use os-prober you still can. If you don’t, that is fine too. How can more choice than that be offered?
