Because I’ve some problems to install grub on arch, I would like try systemd boot but, if I install this bootloader, can it’s read the void partition? Clearly I don’t have systemd on void
Have you read anything about void ? (https://wiki.voidlinux.eu/Runit)
Void does not support or provide systemd. Luckily
Yes, I know that void doesn’t use systemd, but my question is another
So I am sorry.
You are talking about the bootloader ? Gummiboot ?
I really apologize my firtst statement @zar_marco ! I just didn’t see the little but important word “arch”. My fault !
Systemd-boot can not read any partitions except EFI partition (it is usually mounted to /boot/efi).
To boot Void from Arch`s systemd-boot you need to copy your kernel and initrd to EFI partition and configure systemd-boot to boot this kernel. Just follow instructions on Arch Wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/systemd-boot) to configure it.
It is easy to configure it. And systemd-boot will automatically add some useful options to boot your computer
Thank you so much, now I read arch wiki and tomorrow I’m try it
Refind is a nice bootloader if you want to try
Refind is really great.
Does it support encrypted (LUKS) boot partitions like GRUB does?
Tomorrow I’ll try with systemd-boot if I’ll not solve with systemd-boot I’ll try with refind, I’ve used refind in the past for booting slackware
No it doesn’t support encrypted boot partition but it support secure boot.
Not so long ago Void was using systemd.
And after that they removed it: #1939
EDIT: … I thought there were no leftovers ?
I know. But they have done the right decision from moving away from it.
Thanks to you now there aren’t. Thanks !
Is the --omit flag appended to the initramfs too if I create one now on my system? (no live image… my real running daily system)
Yes, of course,
if [ "$BASE_SYSTEM_PKG" = "base-system-systemd" ]
is always false.
