    Problem installing GFX Grub

    Hi, I'm having a problem getting GFX GRUB to work. I have installed it based on this Howto: GfxBoot ( Grub like suse ).

    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:

    The I have installed GFX 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?

    Re: Problem installing GFX Grub

    I know how you feel, I recently updated to this new kernal and followed this tutorial for GFXGrub: 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 )
