Why? If you have just one operating system installed, you can just
your machine anyway and don't have to reboot the machine at all.
You need to reboot for updates/upgrades (which in case of Tumbleweed are
just like updates ;) ) If I didn't restart as much as I do, I wouldn't
be suggesting this change :P
Fedora has 4
patches for this purpose [1,2,3,4], the only thing we would need to
add to this
would be YaST handling of setting variable automatically for
FWIW, Fedora also has almost 300 patches on top of GRUB 2.02:
I think that's just way too much. They will have a lot of fun with the
upcoming version 2.04 when they have to rebase everything.
I mean, openSUSE has 150, it's still not going to be fun.
I know that
snapper is an useful tool for openSUSE, and GRUB is
required for this to work, but snapper is almost always used when
able to boot into the system.
But what about just switching to systemd-boot then?
We cannot do this, systemd-boot doesn't support booting from different
partition than the one mounted for loader entries. Our default
/boot/efi (kernel+initrd however in /boot), and YaST will complain about
different setup than this. This is done because of snapper, which backs
/boot for the sake of keeping the same kernel and initrd for snapshots.
GRUB2 with BLS will work with such setup though.
