Wither NuTyX? (What's the situation vis-a-vis systemd?)


In my explorations of the site, I noted a "under construction" page referencing systemd.

Does this imply a planned transition? An option? Some idea of the future before investing time and effort into trying to shoehorn NuTyX into a BTRFS 'pool' of distros (using rEFInd bootmanager which requires the kernel to include EFI-stub support) ::) would be greatly appreciated. Tx.

And of course, shortly after posting, I found the answer -

So, now I can ask a few more questions:

1. Is 10.98 (11.0 RC2) a base for "rolling" updates (or should I wait for 11.0 'final')?

2. Does a "rolling" update 'respect' the current fstab? (For example, if I install NuTyX to an ext4 partition with a separate grub EFI, can I copy the contents of that ext4 partition to a BTRFS subvolume, update its fstab and use a different bootmanager from the one created by the install?)

2a. When EFI-stub was made available, most distros compiled it into their kernel, even though they continued to use a bootmanager/loader (usually GRUB). Is this the case with NuTyX?

Yes today's kernel of EFI NuTyX is indeed located on the EFI partition. We don't need any bootmanager (grub for exemple) to boot a NuTyX EFI System

--- Code: ---ls /boot/efi/EFI/BOOT/3/

where 3 is my SystemPartitionNumber
