Re: Grub 2 Basics
Maybe this question has already been answered, but I can't read through 82 pages of posts to try to find it.
I needed to set the nomodeset parameter for a second Linux on my PC. I prefer grub2 (Arch uses legacy grub), so I control the booting configuration from Ubuntu. If I add the parameter to /etc/default/grub and run update-grub, the only boot command that is affected is the one for Ubuntu.
Therefore, to achieve the needed effect, I had to manually edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg, which is a no-no for grub2. I am uncomfortable with this. Is the main problem that I will have to make this manual change after every time update-grub is run? Is there a better way to do this?
