    I had it before but it was on one of my 9.10 installs and I am on Jaunty now.

    Have to have this. Like grub2 or not, it is what we are using and we need to keep up with it.

    Thanks again.

    Re: GRUB 2 Introduction

    The one that we need to be the most aware of is;

    "update-grub is replaced by grub-mkconfig"

    This will be the one with the most impact on the most people. It has been in the blue print all a long. It has worked all along. We are all more familiar with "update-grub" so we have been using it.

    A nice bit of something we recognize in the new system. Now it is going the way of the Mammoth.

    Re: GRUB 2 Introduction

    I have a very simple situation. The installation has picked up my Windows XP disk fine. All I want to do is change the default to XP so the rest of the family is happy. I can't find any grub file in /etc/default. I cat find a .cfg file in /boot/grub. I can find the old file which seems to have been updated to reflect the new boot order, but changing the default there has no impact, as it shouldn't.

    Re: GRUB 2 Introduction

    How about running;
    Code:
    grub-install -v
    If you did a clean install you should have a /etc/default/grub file. The "Grub=0" line would need to be edited to meet your conditions.

    The above "code" will tell us what grub your box thinks it is running. Then we will see what is up.
