View Full Version : [ubuntu] Grub Menu Issue

January 20th, 2010, 09:45 PM
I am running a Minimal installation of Karmic that I installed yesterday and it periodically freezes on startup at:

*Loading LIRC Modules
lirc-0.8.6[774]:lircd(default) ready, using /var/run/lirc/lircd

It will sit there until I turn it off and on again. However, upon turning it back on, I get the Grub 2 menu and it does not auto load the defaul OS. I have to use the keyboard to press enter to select the OS I want to load. The problem is the machine is my HTPC with no keyboard or mouse attached, only a remote. Is there a way to set Grub 2 to auto load the default OS in this case just like it does on a normal boot?

Remember, the Grub 2 menu only shows and doesn't go away if I have to turn the power off and on due to startup hanging at LIRC.

BTW, this only started happening with 2.6.31-17 as the Minimal install of Karmic that I did 2 weeks ago does not have this problem and this new LIRC hanging problem has shown itself on all installs I have done starting yesterday.

That fixed the problem.

Great. And good luck with your freezing problem.
