    Updating grub.cfg

    Currently I have two entries in grub.cfg one for Ubuntu 11:04 and one for Ubuntu 12:04. grub.cfg says "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE", yet I see references to partitions as UUID as generated by blkid. So if I want to add a new partition to the boot menu where do I do it and how do I update grub.cfg?

    Re: Updating grub.cfg

    sudo update-grub

    That will find any other installed Ubuntu and most other systems that are bootable.

    If you want to manually add something you edit 40_custom and then run the sudo update-grub to update grub.cfg.
