    Fedora 28's Grubby Could Deal With /boot On Btrfs

    I read on phoronix that Fedora 28's Grubby Could Deal With /boot On Btrfs; I did a clean install of the last stable from happyassassin (Fedora-28-20180313.n.0) yesterday, no problem
    , boots fine but it is not possible to have /boot on btrfs unfortunately.
    Any news on this?

    Oh the "beta" that is a daily compose instead works really great, only the openh264 repo for firefox is not available, yet...

    I tried with 20180315.n.0 just now. Anaconda still do not accept /boot on btrfs.

    Re: Fedora 28's Grubby Could Deal With /boot On Btrfs

    When a software is inefficient, but works just fine, just continue with it. The anaconda that is used with F27 is more current than the " compose Anaconda version" that states "Use at your own risk".

    I have 5 disks, and it takes more than 5 minutes for the "compose anaconda" to analyze my environment. With the F27 Anaconda, that 5+ minutes shrinks down to 2 minutes.

    Even so, that is way to long.

    My idea of a better solution.
    ============================
    Anaconda should do what sudo blkid /dev/* does, and that is to quickly collect /dev/sd* names and present them. Then when I click on the one(s) I want to use, it can do a secondary indepth analysis for the ones I selected. Nothing is ever used from the unselected disks.

    I think that the 2 or 3 minutes can drop to 15 seconds.

    Discussed during the 2018-03-12 blocker review meeting: [1]

    The decision to classify this bug as an AcceptedFreezeException was made as this is a feature that people have been asking for for a long time that would add significant value to the Fedora 28 release, and if we want to add that feature, it would be best to test it in Beta instead of Final.

    [1] https://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.or...3-12-16.01.txt
    So apparently it was approved and we just have to wait for it.
