terminal basic usage

Postby visk » Fri Jan 29, 2010 11:07 pm

Hello every1
I need some basic help with the terminal
I was trying to reinstall grub by following the instructions here http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php ... _your_grub

But I got stuck at this command "grub> find /boot/grub/stage1" it tell "no such file or directory" i guess because I did a separate partition for /boot (as someone suggested in this forum) but now I don't know how to edit the command to make it point to a different partition ... how can I do that ?

:?

Anyone?

How should I replace the command "grub> find /boot/grub/stage1" if I have the /boot on a separate partition?
Or I got something wrong, and that command is not working for me for another reason ?

I really don't know how to help you, as I've never re-configured Grub.

However, you should check out the Grub and Grub2 websites.

http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/
http://grub.enbug.org/
http://www.uruk.org/orig-grub/

The Ubuntu Forums seems to have several topic threads about Grub >> http://ubuntuforums.org/search.php?searchid=69588219

Hopefully, they will be able to shed some light on the subject.

Code: Select all

sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt


If you have a separate boot partition:

Code: Select all

sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt/boot



isn't that correct ? :roll:

Which version of Mint are you trying to re-install Grub onto ?
