This is what I was afraid of because I still run grub legacy as my boot manager. I just chainload the distros that insist on using grub2. I may have to use grub2 at some point in the future but I prefer the simplicity of grub legacy.mph wrote:I didn't uncheck those check boxes during the installation. After booting the system, my dual boot Ubuntu wasn't found anymore. I tried to reconfigure the GRUB with the command 'sudo update-grub' but it finds only the LMDE. I'm not very familiar with the GRUB, can somebody help me how to reconfigure it (if needed, I can provide more data about my partitioning etc.).

I realize that a lot of people just go with grub2 but I think simpler is better. That's just me. Linux is about choice and I am not a computer guru but sometimes I have learned enough to know that some choices (changes) might not be good for me.

sysv-rc and three other packages
"This package provides support for the System-V like system for booting, changing runlevels, and shutting down, configured through symbolic links in /etc/rc?.d/."
I haven't heard any reviews of this at all, but I haven't actively been searching for it. I unchecked the box as well.
