    I appreciate all that you have done on BURG.

    Is it time to start a new thread devoted specifically to BURG to make the distinction between your work and the 'official' Grub product? I know your posts have been in response to users' questions and really appreciate the time you are taking to help everyone interested in theming.

    I am not trying to hijack this thread to make it a BURG v Grub discussion.
    grub2 has the infrastructure for password support, but you need to edit grub.cfg manually:

    http://grub.enbug.org/Authentication

    Also, the new menu system will popup a dialog for username and password, but grub2 just clear the screen and print the prompt.

    Sure, you can edit /boot/burg/themes/winter/theme.txt, add these inside the class section, for example:

    Code:
    class {
      ...
      Windows {
        image = "${theme_dir}/os_win.png"
      }
    
      Ubuntu {
        image = "${theme_dir}/os_ubuntu.png"
      }
    
      image {
        image = "${theme_dir}/os_unknown.png"
      }
    }
    And copy icons to /boot/burg/themes/winter/.

    Currently in Grub 2 you set the usernames/passwords in /etc/grub.d/00_header and it will prompt for username/password if a password-protected entry is selected or the user tries to edit the menu. It's still not encrypted, at least in 1.97 beta.

    But the GRUB_USERS feature you now have is a new feature to me and a good addition.

    Now back to theming ...

    It uses pbkdf2 encryption for password. This function has been merged into grub2 trunk lately, and it's used in BURG as well. The hashed password is stored in /etc/default/burg-passwd.

    You followed outdated directions and I hope vish updates the first post to reflect this.

    http://code.google.com/p/burg/wiki/InstallUbuntu

    Installing BURG now is a cakewalk compared to what it used to be.

    Re: GRUB2 theming for lucid?

    OK, you buggers got me. I installed burg on a 9.10 install here on the test platform during my morning chroot update of all installs.

    I have to do a little more studying in the files to see what I expect and then try it out.

    Re: GRUB2 theming for lucid?

    Well, that was interesting.

    Keep in mind that I have 9 OS' on the test platform. Five versions of Ubuntu 10.04. One 9.10 minimal upgraded to 10.04 using the Gnome DE. One Lubuntu 10.04. One Zenix 9.10. One Stoner Edition 1.2 (9.10 respin). One Mandrva 2009-1. One Ubuntu 8.04.

    My initial boot through burg was bad. I am using the default theme (refit). All I got was a blue screen with a couple of boxes in the center and a progress bar. I hit enter and booted to Stoner (default as this is where burg is installed).

    Added my custom file to burg.d and updated burg. Rebooted. Now I have 4 large circular ? incons in a horizontal row. The one on the left takes me to Stoner. The next takes me to Lounge Lizard which is next on the custom menu.

    I did not explore further as the pattern was fairly clear. Booted to Lounge, chrooted to Stoned Lizard and reinstalled that grub on the MBR and here I am back with boinc running to beat the band.

    Now, what on earth am I doing wrong, if anything? Do I need to change something so I have a usable menu? Am I in the wrong theme?

    The only editing that I did was to enable the themes and make the time out 100 instead of 5 (thank god I did that or the first boot would have been ugly).

    Waiting with bated breath for words of wisdom.
