mint in a multi-boot set-up

Postby MALsPa on Sat Dec 01, 2007 1:36 am

I'm running a multi-boot set-up with Ubuntu Dapper, Mepis 6.5, Mepis 6.0, and PCLOS 2007. The other distros are all booting from Dapper's menu list. I added Mint 2.2 and Mint 4.0, but, can't seem to boot into them using Dapper's menu list like I do with the other distros. Is it not possible to do this?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Silly me. I finally figured it out, thanks to this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=90&t=6104&p=39172&hilit=multi#p39172

(Thanks, Boo!)

During the installation, I kept indicating the partition to install grub to in the wrong way -- in my case, /dev/sdb11 is what works.

My first time using Mint -- looks nice so far!
