    Wait. It didn't exactly work perfectly. The result is usable, but a little strange.

    Instead of just creating the Arch boot command with nomodeset appended, for some reason it created two Arch boot commands, one with nomodeset and the other without it.

    I have no idea how this simple change could cause it to make double boot commands for Arch. It seems to me that it should have simply done what it used to do, except when finding Arch, adding nomodeset to the end of its boot command.

    Weird.

    Off hand, I can think of one possibility. Did you make a backup copy of 30... that might still have the executable bit and is running on 'update-grub'? Any executable script in the grub.d folder is going to be run.

    Ah, ok. I did make a backup script. Standard procedure. I had no idea it would be executed after I changed the file name.

    Thanks,

    Re: Grub 2 Basics

    Quick question: Is there a way to edit the names of entries that have been successfully listed by Grub2? I only ask because for some reason on my Grub2 (11.10) Kubuntu is listed as Ubuntu, and I'd like to change it to the proper name. Many thanks.

    There are several ways to do this but by far the most convenient is to use an app called Grub Customizer. It was designed for Grub 2 and can perform a variety of menu tweaks, including renaming entries.

    Click the "Customizer" link in my signature line to visit the thread I created about it.

    Excellent! Many thanks.

    Out of interest, what would be the manual way?

    The manual way is in the Tutorial in my signature. It is also mentioned on this thread of drs305's on about page one.

    It may look sort of intimidating at first but, it is straight forward.

    1. Manually editing the grub.cfg file, which would not be a good solution as it would get overwritten during updates (yours or system file upgrades).

    2. Manually editing the scripts which generate the final grub menu. These are mostly contained in the /etc/grub.d folder. These edits can be very obscure, and you can see the convoluted way some of these can be made by clicking on the "Tweaks" link in my signature line. I wouldn't recommend these methods - they take a toll on your mind!

    3. Create a custom menu (one is provided in /etc/grub.d/40_custom). This file doesn't change, although there are ways to keep the kernel current. Cavsfan came up with a great tutorial on how to use a custom menu while still allowing you to keep the latest kernel in the menu. The link is in his signature.
