My expertise with Ubuntu/Linux is not good, but I'm trying to learn.
I have several partitions on my HD which are essentially grouped in pairs with a Ubuntu installation in each pair group. The first partition in a pair is for '/' and the second is for '/home'.
As you can see from the image above, I am currently running the Ubuntu installation at sda5/6, which is my 'production' system based on Raring. sda7/8 is a Saucy upgrade of Raring copied from sda5/6. sda9/10 is a Saucy mini iso install with a bunch of Gnome thrown in (my disappointment continues). sda11/12 is a daily CD install of Xubuntu Saucy. In each install, the Hostname is set as per the partition label, ie raring-a, saucy-a, saucy-b etc. Occasionally, I end up in unfamiliar Linux territory, end up crunching things and have to resort to Boot-Repair to get me back to a bootable/workable system. However, I am inexperienced with Grub and end up with a Grub list that looks like this:
Even Xubuntu is being listed as Ubuntu.
What I would like is that on boot Grub would display the Hostname or the partition details instead of "Ubuntu Saucy Salamander etc etc". My dream world is for a listing along the lines of:
Ubuntu Raring on sda5
Advanced Options for Raring on sda5
Ubuntu Saucy on sda7
Advanced Options for Saucy on sda7
Ubuntu Saucy on sda9
Advanced Options for Saucy on sda9
Xubuntu Saucy on sda11
Advanced Options for Saucy on sda11
I've read a couple of howtos on modifying grub and waded through the Grub manual, but this is a little beyond me. Even Grub Customizer left me scratching my head. Any/all suggestions would be appreciated.
