#16 Confusing grub menu
Opened 2 years ago by mclasen. Modified 10 months ago

With package layering, we end up with two identical items in the grub boot menu, which is confusing.

This is tracked in https://github.com/projectatomic/rpm-ostree/issues/1239

Update from the meeting on March 19: Jakub and Allan are going to do a design review of the boot UX soon (with the grub package maintainers), and will take this issue into account when doing so.

I'm seeing duplicate menu entries still, which I think is the result of the bootloaderspec change in GRUB, so GRUB via blscfg.mod can now read the /boot/loader/entries/*conf files directly, and GRUB merges them with the ones in grub.cfg proper which get there by /etc/grub.d/??_ostree (I'm guessing based on memory). Anyway, I expect CoreOS is going to solve this and then Silverblue will be rebased on CoreOS.
