Package rEFInd-tools

User friendly EFI boot manager (management tools)

A graphical boot manager for EFI- and UEFI-based computers, such as all
Intel-based Macs and recent (most 2011 and later) PCs. rEFInd presents a
boot menu showing all the EFI boot loaders on the EFI-accessible
partitions, and optionally BIOS-bootable partitions on Macs and BIOS boot
entries on UEFI PCs with CSMs. EFI-compatible OSes, including Linux,
provide boot loaders that rEFInd can detect and launch. rEFInd can launch
Linux EFI boot loaders such as ELILO, GRUB Legacy, GRUB 2, and 3.3.0 and
later kernels with EFI stub support. EFI file system drivers for ext2/3/4fs,
ReiserFS, Btrfs, NTFS, HFS+, and ISO-9660 enable rEFInd to read boot
loaders from these file systems, too. rEFInd's ability to detect boot
loaders at run time makes it very easy to use, particularly when paired with
Linux kernels that provide EFI stub support.

This package provides the tools to manage the installation
of rEFInd on your system.
