Sorry... but that's just plain wrong.

Maybe my use case is odd... but my /boot partition is a *MINIMUM* of 5GB on all of my computers.


1.) I have a rescue image setup to boot if I need it...
2.) I have a ghost image I made right after installing this version of fedora.

I don't see why either of those should exist entirely in /boot. You are allowed further partitions.

Where else would they be better placed?
I have no desire to clutter my disk with endless numbers of partitions, and placing them in the root partition is just plain stupid.

Nothing in /boot should remain relevant after we get a proper kernel in memory and enough modules to read the rest of the disk.


Again... where better to place the tools that can fix a broken system?

Keep in mind that these tools should rarely (if ever) be used.

After all... these are supposed to be the tools of last resort... where better to place them... than the partition that's not supposed to be touched?

The /boot partition is, in fact, the perfect location for such emergency tools.

No, you need a rescue partition. Possibly one that doesn't even appear in fstab on your running system.

On an unrelated note I don't see as much value in having a rescue image on the drive. If my system can't rescue itself, 9 times out of 10 the boot loader is what went, and then how do I start my rescue image?
