    Phoronix: Gummiboot UEFI Boot Loader To Be Added To Systemd

    The newest feature being worked on for systemd? A boot loader, of course! It was revealed this weekend that systemd developers are looking at integrating Gummiboot into systemd...

    I think the next item on the list will be ... a kernel.

      Systemd needs to be an OS in itself, so coreboot should have systemd baked in

      Systemd needs to change its name to SystemOS in that case haha

        What a good sense of humor you have there.

          Naaah, I think that Linus would block all Kernel patches for that.... but I think systemd-libc is the next big thing.

            Now wouldn't be a surprise than in the future they will add the kernel into systemd for security reasons, but of course, the kernel feature will remain option and you'll still be able to use systemd with the default kernel. PD: this wont happen, i'm just making fun of it.
            But still I guess they will have their reasons for what they are doing, maybe in the future we realize than thats the way to go.

              Even michael is already mad about users crying

              Before many Phoronix readers get bent out of shape over systemd adding a boot loader on top of its many other features, Lennart says that the bootloader feature will remain option and you'll still be able to use systemd with GRUB2, etc.
              sarcasm is ok, but can you all post-denuvan blogpost readers stop crying?
              thank you.

                  That would then allow systemd to become part of the initrd sometime in the future, but isn't a stripped-down libc already part of initrd?

                    I almost wish there was a systemd os....No more moving targets, the buck stops here, 1 umbrella for everything. If you dont like it then submit a change/mod.
