View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem installing GFX Grub

January 3rd, 2009, 07:52 PM
Hi, I'm having a problem getting GFX GRUB to work. I have installed it based on this Howto: GfxBoot ( Grub like suse ) (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=208855).

Here is how I installed it:

First I downloaded the files required. I have used grub-gfxboot_0.97-36_amd64.deb since I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit.

Then I have removed GRUB:

Then I have copied message.suse to /boot/grub:

Then I have backup /boot/grub/menu.lst and edited it:

Then I have configured grub:

After I did the following steps, when I switch on my computer nothing has changed to GRUB! Can someone help?

I know how you feel, I recently updated to this new kernal and followed this tutorial for GFXGrub: http://tuxenclave.wordpress.com/2008/01/18/how-to-install-gfx-grub-in-ubuntu/ and now I have to force boot into my linux with SGD. I have all my files in the right place, but when I type "sudo grub-install /dev/sda6" (6 is my linux partition) I get an "Unrecognized Command" error. Does anyone out there have a solution? I've added too many new progs and widgets to just re-install, plus I have XP and 7 rc1. (I'm using 3dsmax, so I can't make my system linux-only :( )
