(SOLVED) Small Grub problem

Postby ac0ax on Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:32 pm

I'm sure this is something easy to fix but just can't find the answer. I was dual booting windows/Mint 14 Cinnamon. I removed the window partition and re-sized the drive. Then I ran update-grub. It boots fine, however the boot loader screen comes up to select an OS. I am just running Cinnamon only. I would like to know how to fix it so the boot loader screen doesn't come up anymore.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you open the file /etc/default/grub you may find this line:


Code: Select all
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT="0"


Remove the comment mark so it looks like this:

Code: Select all
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT="0"


I think that will do it.

You will need root/sudo permissions to edit this file.

Thanks Viking.. That solved most of it. I also had to do a sudo update-grub. Now I am happy
