Grub solved

Postby j1111c on Fri Sep 28, 2007 12:08 pm

Grub question. After installing Celena grub no longer shows Cassandra. I have Bianca, Cassandra, Celena, Windows xp installed. Can open all but Cassandra my menu list is below. Thanks j1111c

# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
# grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
# and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.

## default num
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
default 4

gfxmenu=/etc/grub/message.mint

## timeout sec
# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
# (normally the first entry defined).
timeout 10

# Pretty colours
color cyan/blue white/blue

## password ['--md5'] passwd
# If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing
# control (menu entry editor and command-line) and entries protected by the
# command 'lock'
# e.g. password topsecret
# password --md5 $1$gLhU0/$aW78kHK1QfV3P2b2znUoe/
# password topsecret

# Put static boot stanzas before and/or after AUTOMAGIC KERNEL LIST

### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified
## by the debian update-grub script except for the default options below

## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs

## ## Start Default Options ##
## default kernel options
## default kernel options for automagic boot options
## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
# kopt=root=/dev/hda4 ro

## default grub root device
## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
# groot=(hd0,3)

## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. alternative=true
## alternative=false
# alternative=true

## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. lockalternative=true
## lockalternative=false
# lockalternative=false

## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
## alternatives
## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
# defoptions=quiet splash

## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
## altoptions=(recovery mode) single
# altoptions=(recovery mode) single

## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
## alternative kernel options
## e.g. howmany=all
## howmany=7
# howmany=all

## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
## e.g. memtest86=true
## memtest86=false
# memtest86=true

## ## End Default Options ##

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You have a really ugly menu.lst :)
It looks like the one I have in my secondary computer
This is the downside of ubiquity - it finds all (?) other installed systems but menu.lst gets really messy
I see you have ubuntu mentioned - is it installed?
If not remove the entry
And do yourself a favour - edit the list.
You can remove all entries of memory test but one
In the title add which Mint it is and I would place all the recovery mode entries after the others - but back up first
Makes it a lot easier to select when you boot
Now to the solution
Is Cassandra represented in that list?
If so the entry points to the the wrong location and you have to change it
If not add an entry - you have excellent templates there already
If it's there and correct post back
Image
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Grub,solved somewhat

Husse: Thanks for your reply. Sorry to be so slow about answering.
The Ubuntu you asked about is Binca, I read where you should not upgrade it so I had to try that. :lol:
I did edit the list and removed about half of the entries. A lot were the memory test you mentioned.
Yes Cassandra is the item mentioned on hda7. I have now copied this to the default list, I think.
I also changed the number of how many systems will boot, not sure if this was need.
Next changed the default number.
I can now get to Bianca,Cassandra,Celena and Windows from the new grub menu by using the down arrow as ther are not all showed in the menu, found this by accident wish the menu listed all of them.
Thanks for your help.
