    Re: update-grub syntax error

    Is not line 287 the last line?

    Maybe os-prober cannot copy the submenu entry?

    I might try removing that.
    Or you can copy to 40_custom & remove submenu entry. Then turn os-prober off.
    In /etc/default/grub I added this:
    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true
    or turn off executeable bit
    sudo chmod a-x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober


    gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Copy them to and edit :
    gksudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom
    Then do:
    sudo update-grub

    Yes, the last line is line 287. Closing double-quotes are missing in two places in resume=UUID=9a4b8b62-9163-4d61-b9af-4d4c75e29fee:

    grub-script-check considers everything marked in red to be one long kernel boot parameter, then encounters unmatched }, and aborts on syntax error. As grub-script-check also gets called by update-grub (or rather by grub-mkconfig that itself gets called by update-grub), update-grub aborts, too.

    I wonder how the closing double-quote got dropped from grub.cfg.new? Try manually running linux-boot-prober on /dev/sda2:
    Code:
    sudo linux-boot-prober /dev/sda2|cut -d: -f6-|nl -s': ' -w1|egrep --color ':|"'
    If it will show unmatched double-quotes among kernel boot parameters then I guess the problem lies with your Slackware grub configuration, not with Ubuntu.

    Maybe os-prober cannot copy the submenu entry?

    I might try removing that.
    I'm not that much experienced in this, please write steb by step what to remove or what and where to add sometginh.

    Or you can copy to 40_custom & remove submenu entry.
    What to copy.

    gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Copy them to and edit :
    gksudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom
    Then do:
    sudo update-grub
    What to copy when you mean "copy them"?

    oldfred means the lines inserted by os-prober into /boot/grub/grub.cfg. He suggest copying them into /etc/grub.d/40_custom, then disabling os-prober in /etc/default/grub. If you are lost, try the following.

    This will copy os-prober-generated lines from /boot/grub/grub.cfg into /boot/grub/custom.cfg (using 41_custom instead of 40_custom):
    Code:
    sudo sed -n '/os-prober ###$/,//w/boot/grub/custom.cfg' /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    This will disable os-prober in /etc/default/grub:
    Code:
    echo GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true|sudo tee -a /etc/default/grub
    After this you need
    Code:
    sudo update-grube
    Now, boot into your Slackware 13.37 installation on /dev/sda2 and repair boot loader configuration there. I guess it's liloconfig if you're using LILO and grubconfig if you're using GRUB. Alternatively, you can edit lilo.conf/menu.lst of your Slackware manually (IIRC, Slackware 13.37 still uses grub-legacy). When done, reboot into Ubuntu, and
    Code:
    sudo rm /boot/grub/custom.cfg
    sudo sed -i '/^GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER/s/^/#/' /etc/default/grub
    sudo update-grub

    Re: update-grub syntax error

    I think schragge & I see the same issue which is the missing double quote at the end of this line. He is using script commands to modify thing. I just used editor but result is the same.

    linux /boot/vmlinuz root=UUID ro vt.default_utf8=0 vga = normal append = "resume=UUID=9a4b8b62-9163-4d61-b9af-4d4c75e29fee
    If Slackware is using grub legacy, grub2's os-prober is reading that menu.lst and trying to convert to grub2 style. Either a " is missing in Slackware's menu.lst or the conversion to grub2 style is not done correctly.

    This is a simplified boot stanza. But does Slackware not have an initrd line in its boot stanza? or is the Quote issue causing issues with it also?

    Added double quote at end, removed scripting and search lines. They are there in case drive is moved to a new location and is not hd0, so it searches system for the correct UUID. As long as it is hd0, search is redundant.

    menuentry 'Slackware (na /dev/sda2)' {
    insmod part_msdos
    insmod ext2
    set root='hd0,msdos2'
    linux /boot/vmlinuz root=UUID ro vt.default_utf8=0 vga = normal append = "resume=UUID=9a4b8b62-9163-4d61-b9af-4d4c75e29fee"
    }
    It might be worthwhile to dump all the configurations, so we can see details, Run the BootInfo report and post link.

    On Slackware, /boot/vmlinuz is a symlink to /boot/vmlinuz-huge-<version>, which is a huge kernel with all drivers compiled in, and thus not needing initrd. It's usually used for recovery or debugging. Normal kernel is /boot/vmlinuz-generic-<version>, and it comes with initrd.

    Thanks.

    This will copy os-prober-generated lines from /boot/grub/grub.cfg into /boot/grub/custom.cfg (using 41_custom instead of 40_custom):
    Code:
    sudo -n sed '/os-prober ###$/,//w/boot/grub/custom.cfg' /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Can't do it. When i type this i have message: sudo : unfortunaltely, password is required for sudo (what is strange for me, because it doesen't ask for it, just warns and i can't type it)

    I won't try anything more, that You posted, because of this error above, in fact - i just can't.

    Strange is that only this instance of ubuntu warns me when i update grub. I have another one with the same Slackware set up and there is no warning, no error. In fact, i have also few different "debian" based linux system - Kubuntu and Mint - and with them it is fine.
