Thank you, making openSUSE controls GRUB solved it for me. This page helped a lot: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:RepairMBRafterWindowsinstall

2017-07-11 08:41:31 -0500 asked a question Fedora 26 Fails To Detect openSUSE TW On Btrfs

I have a hard disk with multiple Linux distributions on different partitions. My main distro was openSUSE, but I installed Fedora 26 on another partition and made it controls GRUB.

However, It can detect Windows and Ubuntu in the booting menu, but not openSUSE Tumbleweed.

I have tried to run:

[root@localhost ~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64

Found Windows 10 on /dev/sda1
Found openSUSE Tumbleweed on /dev/sda3
Found Ubuntu 17.04 (17.04) on /dev/sda4
done

As you can see, it detects it exists, however, it's not the boot menu. (there doesn't even exist an entry for it in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg).

My openSUSE installation is using a Btrfs filesystem. Different subvolumes are there. I can access the partition easily from the file manager. But I just can't boot into it.

I know that but I am asking a specific question here: is removing that package enough or not?

Hello.

I have 2 graphic cards in my laptop: * One from Intel HD. * One from Nvidia.

It's a nvidia-optimus laptop as you can see.

I want to disable Nvidia graphic card permanently at Fedora 23, is it enough to remove the package xorg-x11-drv-nouveau to do this, or I have to do something else?

Thanks.
