Customizing Grub during the EndeavourOS installation

I typically have several EndeavourOS installations on my computers: one for KDE, one for Hyprland, etc. Thus, I want to have different UEFI entries, but they would all have “endeavouros”, with each one overriding the others. You can change the grub ID later by issuing a proper “grub-install” program from the running system or by […]

Timeshift and grub-btrfs in Ubuntu

After looking at the […]

Multibooting with GRUB

4th July, updated with BTRFS installations. Besides Windows (which I rarely use) on my computers, I have a few Linux distributions. Grub 2 does a good job in booting Windows and Linux, especially thanks to os-prober, in autodetecting other operating systems in other partitions of the same computer. However, there are a few “buts” in this […]
