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:
I'm fairly newbish so I hope it's not something way too obviousCode:(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
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.Woooahp. ok, nevermind. It looks like this was caused because I had the "Default 0" set in my menu.lst
However, the last line in your backtrace:
Leads me to belive that your default line says(notice the '=') :Code:ValueError: invalid literal for int(): =0
Am I right?Code:default=0
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???
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
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

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.
