etc/grub/message.mint missing

Postby leo72 on Sun Oct 07, 2007 6:01 am

I've installed Celena on my system doing a fresh new installation but, after rebooting, I get this error message and Grub halts booting until I press any key...
I've checked in /etc/grub and the file is missing... why? Where is that file?

Ciao Leo,

If you're using a separate partition for /boot then the root folder for this partition is /boot itself .... and so /boot/grub/message.mint would actually be /grub/message.mint and /etc/grub/message.mint would not exist.. since it's not in /boot.

Move /etc/grub/message.mint to /boot/grub/message.mint and in your /boot/grub/menu.lst make your grub point at /grub/message.mint

Hope it helps,
Clem

Yeah... it did :D
Thanks for the help but.... I embrace the idea of scorp123: this is annoying... maybe a suggestion for next Romeo, a little check to see if /boot is separated from / so the installer will put the files in the right folders... :wink:
