  1. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Cheers! I tend to update every release but do a clean install every second one.
    A bigger priority is updating this box to the 20th C :-)
    Keep up the good work!
  2. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Does one need to be "very" brave to use 17.04 Cavsfan?? :P
  3. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Hi Cavsfan - yep that was it.

    I have a little message in the start of that bash file that echoes what's actually going on and I'd upgraded to 16.10 & hadn't tidied it up.
    Cheers!! ):P
  4. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    I've spent an hour looking through the wiki(s), my directories and the web but I can't find/remember how I customised the terminal output when running
    sudo update-grub
    It outputs the distributions...

    [all variants] General kernel upgrade question

    Hi all,
    Generally, is it worth upgrading kernels from the release versions to whatever Linus has recently released? (e.g. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS kernel 4.4.0-34 to the new 4.7).

    As a person who is is...
  7. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Cheers!
    I only have XP in the list as this machine is a Frankenstein of old parts and that OS is on an old HDD from about 2003. In the near future I'm hoping to build something with some serious...

    Cheers for that - I'll fiddle with the text. Thanks for the image hosting link, I'll give it a go - will probably use the phone as I don't have a wifi card in the Canon - yet :-)

    GRUB finds the...
  10. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    The only issue I encountered was that for some reason the upgrade borked keyboard and mouse capability in GRUB.

    I was able to re-enable through the BIOS in the Integrated Peripherals table, in the...

    Thanks Cavsfan, awesome!
  14. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Just updated to 15.10 and can't make the grub update name that dist - i.e. it remains as Vivid after a sudo update-grub

    Before I go fiddling and give myself another intensive "learning...

    My /etc/aliases is:

    # See man 5 aliases for format
    postmaster: root
    root: vonStalhein

    Thunderbird points to /var/mail
    Maybe it should poll from /var/spool/mail ?

    [ubuntu] Getting system emails

    Hi all,
    I'd been without a PC for a while until I cobbled this one together a while back.

    I had my previous iteration set up to send system emails when cron jobs started/failed and I think there...
  19. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Yes, definitely harder than putting it on a "real" partition!
    If something goes' wrong you can just hose the install in the sandbox and start again.

    It's certainly highly customisable and as you...
  20. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    I courageously did it in VirtualBox :p
    Undecided on whether it's the way to go as a main dist though!
  21. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Yep, all good now.
  22. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    Hi Cavsfan,
    Sorry for the delay, life keeps getting in the way.
    I couldn't remember whether I'd completed all the steps in your last post so I went through them again last night and rebooted the...

    (later)
    XP will boot but I still need to change the hd# in GRUB to get back into Vivid.

    Have been through the Wiki but I'm not seeing the no doubt obvious remedy.
  25. Re: How to have a custom Grub2 menu that is maintenance free

    How did it work?

    Perfectly!!! You little beauty!
    Hang on, an issue. When I select items 2 or 3 I get "Partition not found" so I must've stuffed up something in your elegantly simple...
