HOWTO: make last chosen entry as default for grub2 bootloader

The correct syntax for enabling savedefault in /etc/default/grub (GRUB 2) is with the lines:

GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true

and not with the line DEFAULT=save that the enquirer suggested.

After adding the two lines above to /etc/default/grub, one has to update GRUB’s configuration, as a superuser, with the following commands:

grub-mkconfig
update-grub
