Current rawhide fedora image is using xfs has a bit higher memory
requirements than btrfs so I've started thinking about migration of my
current image to new root fs on new card.
Looking on partition table on rawhide image served by fedora I see:
Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type
/dev/mmcblk0p1 2048 61439 59392 29M c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/mmcblk0p2 * 61440 1060863 999424 488M 83 Linux
/dev/mmcblk0p3 1060864 2060287 999424 488M 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/mmcblk0p4 2060288 15126527 13066240 6.2G 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Q1: for what is this fat32 first partition?
The raspberry pi firmware
Q2: is it possible to install uboot files from /boot on btrfs? (on
No. But there's no u-boot files in boot, they're on the VFAT
partition. I don't believe u-boot supports loading kernel/initrd from
grub it is no problem with this)
Q3: seems someone done porting of the grub to arm so why there is n grub2
package in fedora?
Because there's a lot of usecases that doesn't work with it. Some of
it histotical, but basically it comes down to someone to spend the
time to do all the work and QA to move over to it. Basically if i'ts
not broken why fix it...
