    It surely can. I am looking into it right now.
    Edit: New version uploaded. It should be able to handle commented-out timeouts.

    Re: Start-Up Manager

    Ok, here's what I've got when I try to run SUM. This IS Edgy AMD64, is there known problems with 64 bit? Or would this be something in the menu.lst I need to change? I did notice I had the timeout value set twice but I took the second one out and got the same errors. Here's what it says:

    Code:
    (startup-manager.py:9534): libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Failed to open session DBUS connection: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
    Volume monitoring will not work.
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/startup-manager.py", line 728, in ?
        sumGui = SumGui()
      File "/usr/bin/startup-manager.py", line 719, in __init__
        read_config()
      File "/usr/bin/startup-manager.py", line 177, in read_config
        evaluate(line)
      File "/usr/bin/startup-manager.py", line 84, in evaluate
        Config.default_boot=int(strip_line(line, 7, None, True))
    ValueError: invalid literal for int(): =0
    I'm fairly newbish so I hope it's not something way too obvious

    Thanks!

    Re: Start-Up Manager

    Woooahp. ok, nevermind. It looks like this was caused because I had the "Default 0" set in my menu.lst. I commented it out (which'd default to 0 anyway) and it looks like it's working.

    Now, let's see if I can get that cheesy Iron Maiden Usplash I had in Dapper back.....

    Hm, default 0 should work without problems.

    However, the last line in your backtrace:
    Code:
    ValueError: invalid literal for int(): =0
    Leads me to belive that your default line says(notice the '=') :
    Code:
    default=0
    Am I right?
    Edit:New version uploaded(sum_0.9-6_all.deb)
    It should be able to handle those things.

    I've installed the program and it is listed as being installed ok on my system. When I try to run it the program opens and then closes immediately. Any ideas???

    Re: Start-Up Manager

    Ignore the problem that I posted above. When I ran it from the command-line I saw that the error was that /etc/usplash.conf did not exist. So after "sudo touch /etc/usplash.cong" everything works fine

    Re: Start-Up Manager

    Ignore it, I will not...
    A bug is a bug, expect a fix in the next version.

    A qt4 version is in the works for our KDE-using friends.
    Here is a screenshot:

    Note that it will not be ready for quite some time, this is just from a preview in qt designer.
    Heck, I have not even decided if I will code it in Python and reuse the code from SUM, or do it in C++(before questioning my mental sanity,
    note that I started this project for learning and it is about time I see how much of my C++ knowledge has gone AWOL).

    Edit:Ok, I will NOT do it in C++...
    I just made an unrelated one-day project in QT/C++ and it made me remember why I did move to Java a few years ago...
    C/C++ have their place, and fortunately this is not it

    Cool. I've already tried SUM on Kubuntu Edgy and after installing some dependencies for gtk or whatever it worked very well.

    Two thumbs up.

    Have you already talked with someone to have SUM included in Feisty? Universe looks realistic, I think.

    Edit: Okay, I just saw your post to the graphical-grub-spec.

    I just installed Kubuntu and would like to use SUM as well. Any chance you could let me know what dependencies I need to install as well?

    Thanks!
