Fedora :: Edit Label In Grub

Jul 28, 2011

I just installed Fedora15 on my Netbook, I find it simply the best OS for this kind of PC. Anyway I have a little problem, Before install Fedora, I installed Windows 7. Now when I start my Netbook, Grub starts countdown, so far so good, then I press any key to enter OS selector where Windows is shown under "other" I would like to know if I can change the label "other" in "Windows7". Also, can I remove the Countdown and make grub starts by let me select which OS I want to start?

Fedora :: How To Edit Grub

Aug 12, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 12 on my system. I also have a Windows 7 running, which existed before the Fedora 12 installation.

When I start my computer, I get a screen that says 'Fedora is starting in 3 seconds' and I can either press a key to stop the boot or let it boot Fedora. If I stop the boot, I am taken to a 'choice screen' where I can choose between 'Fedora' and 'Other' with 'Other' being my Windows 7 OS.

Now, here's what I want to do. I want it to be so that, when I start my computer, I am directly taken to that 'choice screen' without the time limit or anything. And then I can choose which OS to boot. Also, is it possible to rename 'Other' to 'Windows 7' ?

How I can edit Grub in order to bring on these changes?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Label Being Displayed Differently In KDE/Gnome

Mar 23, 2010

So I ran a software in both KDE and Gnome respectively and it seems both of them have separate displays. By that I mean, one is displaying a part of the string(a Label) and the other is not displaying the string at all. I will include some relevant information such as the software uses SWT kit. Also the string is displayed perfect in Windows. If it's still not clear I will sum it up in a sentence. I am trying to display a label using SWT kit and, its being displayed correctly on Windows,partially correct on KDE(Half of the string) and not displayed on Gnome.

I have tried GridDat.grabExcessHorizontalSpace=true, but it didn't. how to approach the problem otherwise?

Jan 1, 2010

If you know Slackware you know Linux. If you know Red Hat you only know Red Hat".Now I made a decision to install Slackware near Ubuntu and Xp.I've installed Slackware with LILO.Well LILO didn't add Ubuntu.So I needed to install from a LiveCD GRUB.Now I've got another problem:GRUB didn't add Slackware.I made a research and realised that I must to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst. This is my hard disk(XP:sda1,sda5;Ubuntu:sda7,sda8;Slackware: /->sda9 /home->sda10): [URL] This is general code for adding an OS to GRUB:

title Slackware
root (hd0,x)
kernel /<vmlinuz_filename> ro root=/dev/hda<partition>
initrd /<initrd_filename>


How can I find initrd for Slackware and I'd like to know how I must to write correct code to add Slackware to GRUB?

Fedora :: F12 VFAT Volume Label Case Wrong

Feb 25, 2010

Under both Windows and Fedora 11, my USB flash drive was mounted using the volume label of "RBR Astro". Under Fedora 12, it now gets mounted as "RBR ASTRO". I like my old case. It's a small nuisance, but it also ended up breaking all my links to files/directories that I store on flash. How can I get the flash to mount while preserving case?

Fedora :: Wrap Icon Label Text In Overview?

Jul 4, 2011

how to wrap the text in the overview for the icons I tell you I love opensource. Straight from some of the guys who wrote gnome shell, and yes the reason it was left out by default is because it has some quirks. Yes it wraps text - however if you have long words - like this_file_has_no_spaces then it will overflow into the icon on either side of it. But most application names have spaces. The obvious place you will see this happening is in recent items where that displays system files etc. The other issue is that when you hover/highlight an icon it will only highlight the first line of text. That's pretty much it and with a few lines of code then you can increase the font size of applications and don't have to worry about names getting cut off

Ubuntu Installation :: Edit /dev/hda In Grub 2.0?

May 28, 2010

I had windows 7 installed on my system prior to the installation of Lucid Lynx. The boot loader for windows is installed in /dev/sda1. The main windows installation is in /dev/sda3 Ubuntu is installed in /dev/sda5.

The grub update has added a loader for windows 7 for /dev/sda3 instead of /dev/sda1. How do i change that to /dev/sda1 in grub 2.0 as it says that it is not recommended to edit grub.cfg in grub 2.0. I know i can add something in custom section but I am not a pro in linux hence i'm not sure how to add that

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 - How To Edit Entries

Jul 13, 2010

I used Ubuntu a few years back. I simply was not able to make it my main OS since I couldn't get video calling to work reliably enough. Anyways I just installed and noticed my grub menu had many more entries then I have operating systems on my computer. Some reason they came up as duplicates. I have so far gathered they took away my menu.lst, they replaced it with something like etc/general/grub. It appears editing this file doesn't give me the ability to change entries. There are a few I would like to rename, and a few I want to get rid of. There is also some other file that is not supposed to be edited, will I need to edit this or is there another way around it? I found info like this, but it is only adding not removing.

Assuming that you already looked at the grub2 documentation and had trouble figuring out what to do, try this. Use sudo to edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom. It will look like this:
exec tail -n +3 $0 .....
After making the change, run 'sudo update-grub' to apply the change to your grub config.
TLDR: Grub 2 added extra entries, how do I remove and rename some?

Ubuntu :: How To Edit Kernels On GRUB

Apr 16, 2011

I have GRUB to allow me to boot windows and Ubuntu, i recently noticed that my list of kernels is getting clogged up with all the updates. So i went online to try and find out how to get rid of the unwanted partitions and also how to add new ones - i am going to attempt to hackintosh, and will need to know how to add kernels. What i found out was; the boot menu in GRUB had a file that is supposed to be called 'menu.lst' (Lst not ist), and that all i needed to do was edit this, that it wouldn't delete the kernels, but that i don't need to, i only need to add and remove links to kernels on the GRUB menu. The problem is that after looking, i don't have that menu.lst file, i have a file containing the image files for 'memtest', but not for my GRUB. I am using 10.04, i don't know what version of GRUB im using but i'm using whichever one comes with 10.04. Could someone please point me in the direction of the files i need to edit or what i need to do to add and remove kernels?
