    I did a gfxboot theme, too.

    Re: Howto : GfxBoot ( Grub like suse )

    I just thought I should post that the newly advised method of installing grub using:
    Code:
    sudo grub
    
    grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
     (hdx,y) # this will be the output
    grub> root (hdx,y)
    grub> setup (hdx)
    did not work for me.

    I had to use the old method of fdisk -l followed by grub-install. Maybe because I don't have an IDE drive (e.g. my drive is sda1/sda2/sda3)?

    Possibly you should add it back to the main instructions as an alternative method for installing.

    Yep me too I recently did a re-install of Ubuntu and this time mucked up the MBR i.e. I installed it on there instead of my /dev/hda2. I re-wrote the MBR with XP fixmbr. And re-did grub from a live disk onto /dev/hda2 after that I couldn't get the find....root....setup method to work. Tried everything and in desperation this morning did grub-install method and it worked. As you can see my system is hdX so I don't think it's sdX related.

    It may be worth adding it back in as an alternate if the other method doesn't work as most people wanting to do this might not troll to the end of the posts.

    Perhaps my experience might point a more technically savvy person in the direction of what is happening.
    Here's the output of fisk -l

    Nice one! Thats the first one I've seen that isn't a mash up of the default SuSE theme - would you mind saying how you did it? I did a larger QEMU screenie for you:



    I added the message.napo and also added the links how you told me footissimo
    No probs - any more I do, I'll add a line so you just have to append

    Re: Howto : GfxBoot ( Grub like suse )

    A Xubuntu theme. This will be the last one until I can work out how to do a non-SuSE based GFXBoot theme.

    This one is a mash-up of Eric Hewitt's SVG icon and JozsefMak's wallpaper from the Xubuntu art page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XubuntuArtwork. It's a little dull, sorry..but it has rodents!

    To install - make sure you have GFXBoot installed, then unzip the theme file and put message.xubu in the /boot/grub directory then append the following to the top of /boot/grub/menu.lst:
    Code:
    gfxmenu /boot/grub/message.xubu
    For PingunZ

    Re: Howto : GfxBoot ( Grub like suse )

    Well whilst install GfxBoot I've managed to screw things up royally and nuke my ability to boot Windows. All of my important files are on Linux, but I do need to boot XP from time to time for work stuff.

    Can anyone help me get out of this bind?

    When I select it I get a very quick flash of "Loading stage 2" follwed by some "malloc" lines and hex codes. It all goes by too fast to really see it.

    So next I tried to mount my XP (NTFS) partition from Linux, and if failed with errors. dmesg reports the following:
    Code:
    [17179857.324000] NTFS-fs warning (device sda1): is_boot_sector_ntfs(): Invalid boot sector checksum.
    [17179857.324000] NTFS-fs error (device sda1): read_ntfs_boot_sector(): Primary boot sector is invalid.
    [17179857.324000] NTFS-fs error (device sda1): read_ntfs_boot_sector(): Mount option errors=recover not used. Aborting without trying to recover.
    [17179857.324000] NTFS-fs error (device sda1): ntfs_fill_super(): Not an NTFS volume.
    ... not encouraging

    My fdisk -l output:
    Code:
    ltmon@clifford:~$ sudo fdisk -l
    Password:
    
    Disk /dev/sda: 100.0 GB, 100030242816 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 12161 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1        3916    31455238+   7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda2            3917        4177     2096482+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda3            4178       12161    64131480   83  Linux
    Preferably I would like to rescue my Windows partition, but don't mind reinstalling it too much because it's pretty much vanilla and doesn't have anything irreplaceable other than saved games.

    I really don't want to reinstall Dapper, as there's a whole lot of work gone into perfecting my setup.

    On the plus side, Grub now looks really nice

    Thanks,

    L.

    Salut DMC_Mandrake,

    You have to replace in makefile (so you need theme source) line
    Code:
    DEFAULT_LANG =
    by
    Code:
    DEFAULT_LANG = fr
    and then compile.
