Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, Relax-and-Recover incorrectly required the dosfsck and efibootmgr utilities installed on systems that do not use UEFI. As a consequence, if the utilities were missing, the "rear mkrescue" command failed with an error. This bug has been fixed. Relax-and-Recover now requires the mentioned utilities to be installed only on UEFI systems.
