1. Does a "rolling" update 'respect' the current fstab?

2.   ..... . 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: [Select]
ls /boot/efi/EFI/BOOT/3/
where 3 is my SystemPartitionNumber

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

Hugo and I decided to split the two systemd and systemv projects.

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?
Before you give a try / 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.

I see.

So I should call it a semi - rolling release. It's last as long we do not have a major release version upgrade , means 9->10->11

I'm not sure yet but probably this version 11 will be the last fixed version. means from the moment I release it, I will run NuTyX in rolling release mode..

Oh , I thought the Rolling release version of Nutyx is once install only and will keep up to date just by running few commands but this recent NuTyX 11 RC2 release seems to defy what I thought .

I will not test the upgrade feature even if it  will be possible. It I propose a major version upgrade it's because they are big chance that an upgrade fails since every single package will be updated. And when you know how fast is the installation process ...

Before you reinstall this version, you can choose in the advanced mode of the  installer:

- Erase

then you make an normal new install (WITHOUT any formating process) then you will recover all your personnal data.

The best way to test this new version it's by remove your existing one and install the new one, possible from this ISO. Your personnal data files won't be touched
