Hey everyone ! Since i started my journey on Endeavour i make up my mind to use less and less gui tools, and grub-organizer is one of them. I learned how to change background, themes, set the default boot and etc, but there is one thing i care about, even more now since i started using the lts kernel as was recommend in one tread i saw in this forum, and that is the order of boot entries in the grub menu. I really don’t know how to do that without grub-organizer, that config file is to messy, feels like i will screw something up. And there’s also the bad fame that grub-organizer has, is often that i see people badmouthing the tool, and i don’t really have enough linux experience to say if that is deserved or not. I remember watching a video in the endeavour wiki about grub-organizer, so it seems to me that you guys are not against the use of the tool. To sum it up i want some advice if i should use grub-organizer or not, and if not, i would like some material i could read or video to watch to learn how to change the order of entries in the grub menu, change theirs names and etc, in the conf file.
EDIT: Sorry for my typo, its GRUB-CUSTOMIZER. I always get this name wrong :v
I would suggest you start learning how to make a copy so you can edit and if something doesn’t work out with the edit you can always replace it with the original. This is a much safer way than Grub Customizer.
As @dalto pointed out it is absolutely unsafe and should not be used.
Well, i’m not sure if this is worth making a new tread, so i will just ask here: I followed the wiki and installed rEFInd, it work’s fine but i noticed that i’m still booting into grub when i select Endeavour. Its ok to use it like this ? I just made the grub launch with only 1 sec delay, so i don’t notice it, but i did a bit of research and found that rEFInd can be use as a standalone bootloader, so i’m not sure if its right to use alongside grub.
Now a question about the cpu microcode: the wiki says to set the microcode in the refind_linux.conf , but since i’m still using grub, and my microcode is setup in the grub file, do i still need it here ?
i was being dumb and booting with the grub entry instead of the other option, now it works as intended ! but oddly, rEFInd ain’t showing my normal linux kernel, only the lts, and yes, it its included in my conf file. I will enable the “scan_all_linux_kernels” options to see if it shows up.
I’m back with a minor issue with rEFInd. I have three entries (ignore the arch logo, it is a failed experiment of mine) , windows, the first tux that boots into grub and the third one that bypass grub and boot me straight up into the system. The problem is, this third option is set to change to be the last downloaded kernel, much like what grub does here on endeavour. The expected behavior was for rEFInd to show every kernel that i have in the system as a boot option. I would like to know what i need to do to achieve that, if possible at all.
