  1. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Fair enough. And I'm guessing the selectable "second" menu of "Previous Linux Versions" (wherein all additional kernels are shown) is set, too? No way to get it all onto just one page of the menu?
  2. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Yeah, my bad. I meant 30_os-prober. Fingers got ahead of my brain!

    But see, I want the entries showing my previous kernels, just not the current one (since again, that's in my customized menu...
  3. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Hey, Cavsfan:

    OK, so I'm using Mint 13 which has Grub 1.99.

    I just updated the kernel, because this laptop I'm using has had some random hardware glitches, and I'm hoping that it was simply the...
  4. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    According to oldfred, though, 2.00 doesn't do "echo" lines anymore:



    Are you saying it does for you, Cavsfan? Because it's not working for me, either.

    Also, let me clarify from my previous...
  5. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    oldfred,

    Thanks. So that takes care of any "echo"-ing that can be customized, but what about the issue of the "menuentry" not getting picked up on the grub update?
  6. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    (I accidentally posted this... well, somewhere else. I received two answers: 1) Check the Mint forums (by a mod :p) and 2) to use a different UUID in my grub.cfg. But now I'm copying and pasting HERE...
  7. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Just did a clean install of Linux Mint Nadia (based on Ubuntu 12.10) and tried setting up my Grub 2.00 menu as normal. But ran into two problems:

    1) When I run 'update-grub', I do not get the echo...
  8. [xfce] Re: Yes, another ICS topic, but with a twist (I hope)

    Someone has suggested setting up a VM, installing Squid in the VM, and using it as (basically) a proxy server.

    Only problem with that is that since this is an older computer, I have just under 1GB...
  9. [xfce] Yes, another ICS topic, but with a twist (I hope)

    OK, so I've found many topics about sharing an internet connection. Most of them generally have to do with the following:

    1) "I have a wired internet connection and want to share it via wifi on my...
  10. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Yeah, I just tried the labeling thing... but it's weird:

  11. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    I guess I don't need to keep 12. I made a Recovery Environment CD already if I really needed it, and I made the Toshiba Recovery Discs (with its wonderful bloatware) already, too. I just like to keep...
  12. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Cavsfan,

    Glad to see you got the previous thread up into a Wiki. VERY nice, and much easier to read/understand, that's for sure!

    Just did the process on my dual-boot Windows 7 / Linux Mint 13,...

    Unfortunately, it's not so easy as just copying the .iso file to the USB disc and making it executable (after all, that would be TOO easy, right? :wink: )

  15. Re: How to: Create a Customized GRUB2 Screen that is Maintenance Free.

    Hey, Cavsfan. Sorry I disappeared as far as posting a screen shot of my set up. Things have been pretty hectic around here, plus I had an issue with the Nvidia driver on my Lubuntu set up, so running...
  16. How do I know if I need to find drivers?

    So I've been messing around with Linux for a few months now, from Ubuntu to Mint to Lubuntu, and over the different computers I've tried it out on, I always come back to one question:

    How do I...

    Slowly but surely getting this figured out!

    OK, first, I changed the resolution AND the 'size' value, and it worked great.
