Ubuntu :: Clean Up Bootloader Menu List - Remove Ones Don't Want To Show On List
Jun 17, 2010
All I want is for my bootloader to show "Ubuntu" & "Windows XP" which are the only 2 OS's I have installed (dual booting). At the moment it shows Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode & like 2 more.. which are also Ubuntu & recovery mode. I've never selected the other Ubuntu ones, only the first one. So, how can I remove the ones I don't want to show on the list.
I've recently installed suse x64 kde in dual boot mode with windows. I have 2 primary partitions with ntfs with 1 for windows7 boot and other for data/storage. There is no boot provision for data partition. SUSE install is on extended partition. I am unable to run fdisk -l and boot info script for some reason, kde is freaking me out (used to use gnome for last 4 years). The GRUB shows data as a boot and it added an entry in its menu. I will like to remove that entry from menu list.
I installed The latest and greatest Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and everything is clicking along just fine except one annoying feature that I am unable to get my finger on.I have quite a list of choices at bootup. I updated a couple version of the kernel and there is this memtest thing...twice... Then my family also uses windows 7 so that is the default at the bottom of the list set to boot after 3 seconds to keep the nagging to a minimum.
I would like to know the cleanest and safest way to have the list only show the current kernel option and the windows 7 option if this is even advised. Would it be best to have a backup (Previous kernel) in the list? *just in case* Is it safe to seek out the old kernel by version number and uninstall? Will this remove the entries in the list? Is editing the list and leaving other options installed wise? Is there a gui grub2 configuration tool with these advanced options? I have StartUp-Manager, but there is no options to change the list.
Im looking for the best/safest option to get this done because I now see another kernel update image in the update manager and it is going to increase the size of my list once I find the time to update. Im a bit green and scared I will ruin a good thing here. Everything is working perfectly so far and I realize one click and it could all be over.
I had windows 7 on my computer on drive D,then I installed opensuse 11.2 on space of drive C. But when I restarted my computer,I couldn't see windows 7 bootloader on the list, all of the options related to opensuse.
i would really like to install Natty from scratch (i always prefer clean installs than upgrade) , but i am seeding 1500 torrents in transmission most of them sorted in directories, and manually adding them again is a big big pain.and will take alot of time.is there a way i can keep the config file or whatever so i dont have to manually add them all? so that i just add it in the new transmission folder and all torrents appear.i assume one way is to keep the /home folder?? but then what if i want a complete clean new install and this is the only thing i want to keep from the old installation?
During 10.04 install I ran into an error every time I tried to install packages, so I just skipped the step figuring I'd do it later.Boot up, nothing but the cd in /etc/apt/sources.list. Does anyone know where I can find the default sources.list?
I have been using Ubuntu for a few days and it keeps on surprising me: This morning when I turned my pc on instead of displaying list of available OS versions GRUB just prints out "[ Minimal BASH-like line...." and console with prefix "sh:grub>". Why is the list gone and how can I get it back?
I tried to change the basic toolbar to cairo dock,a tutorial that i found told me to write in terminal gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.listso i write it and a window opened,i couled not find the text that told me(the tutorial i mean)so i closed the window,after that i keep taiking the same error
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialogue to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
now whene i got in the winehq.list the text has gone and i take this error in update manager,my software center doesn't work and my terminal whenever i type sudo commands says
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
There is a problem with my source list (apparently) I'm running 11.04 if that helps.When I try to use apt-get install update for example, I get: "Malformed line 59 in source list etc/apt/sources.list"The same error occurs when trying to access synaptic package manager, it tells me there is a malformed line and the list of sources cannot be read.This error prevents me from apt-getting anything, updating and i suspect it is affecting the software center too.
We built a library by linking it with a shared library libjvm.so. Now, when I do ldd mylib.so, it does not list libjvm.so. When I run an application, I get a symbol missing from mylib.so, which is actually defined in libjvm.so. Even if I set libjvm.so path in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, the error does not go away.
I'm running on RHEL 5.I have a PREROUTING rule that redirects port 443 to port 8443. If I do "iptables --list" or "iptables -v --list" I see only the standard chains listed. As the prerouting rule is the only rule I have, it appears that I don't have any rules. Is there a way to do a full and true listing of all rules other than "iptables-save"? You might just as well read the iptables file.
How would I list 4 users ID numbered 10, 11, 12 and 13 from my users list and output them to a file busers where their names are numbered by ascending order? How would I accomplish that on a one line command?
I am trying to get this script to work. The purpose is to download a list of modules from the slax.org the list consist of a list of module numbers. What I am trying to do is Download the file or the file name corresponding to the number in the list.the list is comma delimited. this is what I have done so far and I am a stand still.
#!/bin/sh # Wget script to retrieve modules from slax.org modules # # ----Begin of user defined values ----- # Path to wget
When I look at the boot.msg log I see nothing about a firmware failing to load. Does that mean I already have it?
When I try the /usr/sbin/iwconfig command I get: lo no wireless extensions eth0 no wireless extensions When I try the /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command I get: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
There's a page (ar9170 - Linux Wireless) where I can supposedly download the ar9170.fw firmware that supports this device. But when I try to download it it doesn't show up in the /lib/firmware directory and I don't know why.
The system sees the USB adapter, but it doesn't appear to be working. Do I need the firmware? And if so, how do I download it-
I know I do fdisk -l /dev/sda and see all the partitions on that disk, and I know I can do mount and see all the mounted partitions. Is there a way to do both at the same time? Ideally what I'd like to see is the output of fdisk -l but with an additional column that shows if a partition is mounted or not.
I can add my own wallpapers to the list shown in the Desktop Activity Settings box, but can't find a way to remove them again. Is there a control for this somewhere else, or a config file somewhere that I could at least edit manually? I am using KDE 4.4.2, with the kubuntu-desktop package installed on top of Lucid/GNOME.
That is my problem:First i use Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Gnome.Wen i select file and pres right mouse button on it an select Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Open with other Application" I see very long list and some Application their don't work
I understand there is a file that stores the repositories' information, but I can't find it!Is there a way I can create a list of what applications have been installed?The idea is that if I am running a backup, finding a way to save the repository list and applications installed so if I am upgrading, or fixing a borked system by re-installing Fedora, I could copy the repo list back, and run the applications list like ode:yum install <cat apps.txt?> and get all of the applications I've installed via Yum without having to remember them all?Is there anything else, outside of /home, I should look at backing up? SELinux settings?
I am working for a community where several people are engaged for 4 different development projects. we are planning to have a samba server to store our data.Now the problem is that I have created a share in which @groupa, @groupb and @groupc are allowed to read and write. But three of the members of @groupb are only allowed to for read permission only.
have installed some programs from source and found no trace where and what were installed and I would like to remove those installed files. So I am looking for any script or app to list all orphaned (I mean not related to any installed package) files. I am using Ubuntu Server 9.10 without any fancy X11 stuff so console version is preferred. I have found bitbleach and computer janitor in this forum but they are X11 apps.
I want to know if there is any way that one could remove the user list from the login screen requiring the user to type in their user name. I am not quite sure why this feature is not implemented and it is one of the very few things I don't like about Lucid but hopefully there is a fix for it.
In Ubuntu 9.10 I was able to remove the user list from gdm. However in 10.04 I am unable to do this. I searched the forums with no luck. I opened gconf-editor using sudo and went to apps>gdm>simple-greeter. I then checked disable_user_list. After complete shutdown, I was still placed in the list screen. I checked gconf-editor and the disable_user_list was still checked.
