Exclamation Grub2

Does grub2 support booting off of encrypted partitions? I'd like to have an encrypted linux system, but only have space for one partition or logical group in my mbr. Or can I include that one /boot partition in the lvm group. Thank you

NTFS Compression

I only see NTFS compression, and I don't quite understand that level of techspeak. I don't see anything mentioning combining the /boot and /home of encrypted systems........

Please note that partition numbering has been changed to start from 1 (in grub legacy it started from 0). --from the Grub2 Wiki
So in Grub2 drives will still be numbered starting from 0, but partitions start at 1? Those guys are spending waaaay too much time in Mistress Zeena's Dungeon.

At least they are honest - it's called Grub2 because you should have 2nd thoughts about using it.

WOOHOO Grub2 saves my day

Grub 2 now supports installation inside a lvm group. I can now include /boot in my lvm group and come in under 4 partitions!

Thank you Arch Wiki maintainers, Fedora could learn from them!

Hi,

Grub2 is not even included in Fedora (might be there next release but that is still up in the air) yet. There wouldn't really be a point in documenting a program that you can't use with Fedora at the moment.

Wll

This is not recommended as a replacement, it nearly solves my 4 partition problem. It is not an option for me though. Grub2 can be used with Fedora, even if it is not the default. For most, grub1 should work perfectly.
