    Phoronix: GRUB Picks Up Zstd Support To Handle Compressed Btrfs File-Systems

    For the past year the Btrfs file-system in the mainline Linux kernel has supported Zstd as one of its file-system compression options. With the very latest GRUB boot-loader code, it can now deal with your Zstd-compressed Btrfs file-systems...

      It still doesn't seem to pick up an option not to randomly override your UEFI boot menu. Why do complicated things until the basics aren't in place yet? This thing is worse than Windows overriding the MBR in the MBR days, as it randomly happens as a result of simple GRUB updates.

          Don't take my word for it, but if it happens on grub update, it might be a packaging problem.

              Yes, since forever. (The kernel has a stub to decompress itself)

                  Are there any good reasons to have a BTRFS boot disk? Boot environments?

                    Who uses separate boot partitions nowadays?
