    vmalloc problem, where is menu.lst?

    running mythbuntu 10.04 (well, trying to)

    I have some vmalloc related errors. All the links I find say to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file - but I don't have one. I made this change before in 9.04. Has /boot/grub/menu.lst file been replaced by something else in 10.04? The grub.cfg file looks like what I edited in the past, but it clearly says "do not edit this file".

    The main vmalloc page,

    http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Common_Pr...lloc_too_small

    says this can also be added to the /etc/default/grub file. I tried this as described, but it doesn't "take" (when checking the /proc/meminfo file), it's still the original amount of memory.

    In grub2 you edit /etc/default/grub and the files in /etc/grub.d then

    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    to build the grub.cfg file.

    Check out this thread for more information:

    All the files in /etc/grub.d ???

    I opened some of the files and it's not at all clear to me where I'd add the vmalloc entry as mentioned in the mythtv page which discusses this issue.

    As usual, it was a stupid (on my part) syntax issue.

    Anyone with a similar issue for vmalloc edits with grub2 should follow this link:
