Re: Using GRUB with Solus on UEFI

Regarding steps 2 and 4, even though goofibootx64.efi may be at /boot/efi/EFI/..., your mount point for the partition may be /boot/efi, so you can still keep the "chainloader" line as: chainloader /EFI/goofiboot/goofibootx64.efi You can find the mount point through GParted under the "Mount Point" c...

Brisk Menu dash mode question

I have seen that a full-screen dash-like mode has been implemented into Brisk menu for vertical panels, mainly for use in Ubuntu MATE. I'd like to maybe switch from using Gnome on Solus to using MATE + Compiz, but before I start fiddling around with changing DEs I'd like to ask some things regarding...

Chainloading with Goofiboot

I dual boot Solus with Windows 10. Both are managed by Goofiboot, so all's fine. However now I have spliced off a small partition for Ubuntu 16.04, for a specific use. I already now how to chainload Goofiboot from Grub (see https://solus-project.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9802 ), however I'd li...

Re: Bootloader and UEFI

Kernel parameters can be appended to boot via creating a file for clr-boot-manager to use when updating kernels. For example, to add nomodeset to boot options, you would create the file /etc/kernel/cmdline (as sudo): echo 'nomodeset' | sudo tee /etc/kernel/cmdline The settings should be on one line...

Using GRUB with Solus on UEFI

Introduction: For Legacy/MBR, Solus uses GRUB as bootloader, like most other modern GNU/Linux distributions. However, for EFI/GPT, Solus uses a bootloader called goofiboot , instead of GRUB. It needs to be said, that Legacy/MBR allowed only one bootloader to exist per physical drive, hence a good b...

Re: Bootloader and UEFI

Okay, this original post was made in panic, now I managed to do some research, and I mostly understand the situation. With that said, I still have two things unclear to me. 1) How can I permanently pass boot/kernel parameters into "goofiboot"? I managed to use clr-boot-manager to set timeout but the...

Bootloader and UEFI

Heya, I finally decided to try Solus, and I wish to dual boot with Arch Linux. I wanted to do this for a long time but I have pragmatic reasons - The nvidia-lts package has been fucked on Arch for nearly a week without fixing, so I essentially cannot game on Arch with the LTS kernel (this'll be a so...

Question on Solus Optimus support

Heya, I am not using Solus yet, but I am massively interested in this project. Currently I am using Antergos as a main OS, which is something I absolutely love and I hear Solus is probably quite similar but with even more focus on optimal/painless desktop use. Based on research I have done, there is...
