Portage tree doesn't even have sys-boot/gummiboot anymore and what became of gummiboot is included in systemd as systemd-boot and its tools such as bootctl. There seems to be a systemd-boot package that strips it out of systemd sources and builds it as a standalone boot manager (to be used without systemd as it seems to block systemd).

I think the article should be changed to systemd-boot à la Arch Wiki and document its usage. Fcl (talk) 21:58, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi Fcl , there was nothing preventing you from doing the work in moving the article yourself and claiming open source work as your reward. I have moved the article and adjusted the terms, added a note near the lead section, etc. See you around the wiki! Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 16:53, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

Incomplete prerequisites

When following this guide I've encountered some issues. First, is that if if systemd has been built without a gnuefi USE-flag, bootctl install fails because some systemd dirs/files are missing on disk. This post suggests that installing sys-libs/efivar.

I think folks hitting these problems are usually on the livecd chroot install stage so it's importante to provide them with the correct guidelines of how to install the pre-requisites. Webknjaz (talk) 20:25, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
