Cool. Ask me, if you need help testing.

@Moo-Crumpus thanks for your feedback!

So, dracut's alternative to fallback images is hostonly=no I think.

Actually i have some concept in mind to add additional "variants" for each kernel. Then fallback-like (in general, any flags can be passed for each variant) images can be easily achieved via config file, but it need some time to prototype and test such feature.

I love this hook. Any chance to add fallback options to it? Like create an uefi image for a fallback kernel with it's own kernel cmd line.

@Hanabishi nice catch, thank you!

Maybe the package should have strict binutils dependency? Because it's optional for dracut, but required to run --uefi.

About upstream url: there is no dedicated upstream for this project, I used AUR's git for this purpose. So I can only set upstream url to AUR page itself.

I'll add conflict in the next update, thanks.

Wow, that was fast! Confirmed it is fixed, thanks!

If I might make a couple general suggestions: It would be nice to have an upstream URL to a git repo, and it might be wise to add a conflict with the (in my opinion inferior) dracut-hook-uefi package.

@deimosian thanks for the report! Fixed in 3-1, please give a try!
