    Another helpful thing is this repository to add timeshift snapshots to the grub menu in case you want to boot in them.
  • Tumbleweed Gets GNOME 42 - openSUSE

    That's grub-btrfs. Not insulting SUSE, just saying that there's no "secret sauce" that can't be easily implemented on other distros for those who want to.

  • Idea: Get real "boot environments" with an unencrypted btrfs BOOT partition and an encrypted btrfs ROOT partition. Can this scheme be implemented with Grub-BTRFS or any other tool?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/btrfs | 24 Jan 2022
    I use an encrypted BTRFS partition for / with an unencrypted ext4 for /boot. To be able to boot the snapshots, I had to install grub-btrfs because the openSUSE solution only works with everything in one partition. The config options of grub-btrfs seem quite versatile, maybe you can setup snapshots for /boot as well? Haven't tried yet.

    I use btrfs and time-shift for and probably autosnap to automatically take a snapshot before/after upgrade. also install grub-btrfs to get them during grub.
  • Need some general guidance on restoring
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/btrfs | 24 Dec 2021
    What I'm wondering now is about what I'm expected to do in case of system failure. For what I read there are two possibilities: - If snapshots are writable, I can boot in any snapshot and start using it normally, right?. It would be like forking from a previous snapshot, but I read that writable snapshots are dangerous because I could break things again and because snapshots should be inmutable, so readonly snapshots are recommended. Also I found that if done wrong snapshots may not work after restoring (https://www.reddit.com/r/btrfs/comments/aj0o83/why_do_you_need_to_add_snapshots_mountpoint_to/), that's way I feel so afraid to miss a step, haha - So if snapshots are readonly and I boot in them like a live-cd (https://github.com/Antynea/grub-btrfs/blob/master/initramfs/readme.md), how do I "fork" from a readonly snapshot in a persistent way so I can just continue to use the system normally from that "fork" and still preserve the readonly snapshot in case I need to rollback to it again?
  • Can't boot into GRUB Snapshots
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 19 Dec 2021
    Snapper creates read-only snapshots. If you are using grub-btrfs, a workaround has been made by adding grub-btrfs-overlayfs to the end of HOOKS in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf. When I installed grub-btrfs via pacman I didn't have to add the additional files to /etc/initcpio as mentioned in the README on GitHub.

    Download the files from github, and here are the instructions here to install it https://github.com/Antynea/grub-btrfs/blob/master/initramfs/readme.md

    This github thread mentions that you should be able to boot into a read-only snapshot. It just displays the above message and I don't know why.
