• Removing Antergos: can /etc/grub.d/10_antergos file be safely removed?


    This is a post addressed to those who wish to reduce their Antergos system to Arch.

    I have removed most of Antergos packets by hand and so far so good. However, I have noticed that there is still a grub antergos file “/etc/grub.d/10_antergos” that is used when “grub.cfg” is generated with “grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg”.

    Anybody, who also uses the lts version, tried to successfully remove this file yet? There has been a recent grub2 update at the end of July and it might well be that the file “/etc/grub.d/10_linux”, included in the grub2 installation, can replace “/etc/grub.d/10_antergos”.

    One must issue the following commands:

    sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/10_antergos
    sudo chmod +x /etc/grub.d/10_linux
    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    and check the grub (re)boot menu.

    I would appreciate feedback from those who can test or have already tested this!

    This is safe. After remove 10_antergos reinstall “grub” package and regenerate “grub.cfg”

    Here is my script to migrate from Antergos to Arch Linux:
