Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free
I see your latest Grub menu is still using Grub v1.98-1: I thought grub 2 was 1.99.
With Quantal 12.10 Grub Customizer is a disaster, and I get no recovery options, so I am tempted to try your method; I have studied it with interest in the past, but have not tried it out, as Grub Customer did what I needed.
Will it work with Grub 2 v2.00 ?? which has files very different from previous versions.
Edit: I use the following to see what my grub menu will look like : will it work with your system ?
Currently mine shows like this:
grep menuentry /boot/grub/grub.cfg | cut -b 1-11 --complement | cut -d "'" -f1 | cut -d "\"" -f 1 | nl --starting-line-number=0
I have no idea what the first three entries mean, the first [Number 4] and the last, I renamed in grub Customer; entry 6 I( edited in /boot/grub/grub,cfg; whilst entries 7,9, & 10 are spurious duplicates of the sda5 entry, created by update-grub & Grub Customizer

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
