Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Menu Items Showing Twice

May 26, 2011

I reinstalled Natty yesterday and then installed Fedora on a separate partition.

I now havedouble the menu items in GRUB2 for both of these.

I ran the update grub command in the terminal and it goes smoothly, but the extra menu items still don't go away.

Puzzingly the menu items point to the same partition on the drive as their clone. Both of the Fedora menu items point to sda8

For example.

How can I remove menu entries in GRUB? I searched but could not find a reliable answer other than re-running update-grub.

How could I remove GRUB and replace it with Plymouth? Ubuntu Software Centre actually shows Plymouth as "Installed" even though it does not run on startup.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Menu Is Showing Two OS's ?

Sep 12, 2010

I have dual-booted Windows XP and Ubuntu. Because Ubuntu 10.04 doesn't have the required proprietary drivers for my system, I chose Ubuntu 8.04. The installation procedure went well, the drivers are there, everything's perfect but... there's a problem with the GRUB menu that appears just after launching my laptop.

When I first installed Ubuntu it showed Ubuntu (and some letters and numbers), another instance for recovery mode, some memory test lines (I guess there are two of them) and Windows XP.

But after I used the software updater in Ubuntu (to make it up-to-date), the grub bootloader shows two more lines - and those are the same as the first two - Ubuntu (with some letters and symbols) and Ubuntu recovery mode.

Why are those duplicates there? I've never installed another Ubuntu OS on my PC. Because at the moment I have two Ubuntu and two Ubuntu recovery mode lines .

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Boot Menu Not Showing After Natty Update?

Apr 28, 2011

When I first boot up. I get the GRUB command line. What happened to the boot menu? And I can boot up into my Windows partition just fine. But when I try the other partitions i get "Unknown file system" or when I try to boot into the other ntfs drive, I get "BOOTMBR missing", but yet it does not mean Windows, because i can boot that just fine. I can't find my Ubuntu partition. How can I get the GRUB boot menu back?

Slackware :: Installed Grub From 'extras' But Not All Menu Items Work

Feb 7, 2011

I installed grub from the extras directory on the Slackware DVD in the hope that it would 'find' all my linux systems and XP. (LILO would not find them.)It sort of found then, in that they seem to be listed in the grub menu at start up, but only the 'title Windows XP on (/dev/sda1)' and 'title Linux on (/dev/sda7)' actually launch.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Menu Showing Every Boot Up

Apr 28, 2010

I am working with a acer netbook that I originally had WinXP installed on. I downloaded Ubuntu 9.10, transferred the iso contents to a bootable USB drive and installed Ubuntu. I remember during the setup process that I made sure I chose the option to install on one partition. There is only one partition on my netbook with a small second partition as a swap.

After the installation process and reboot I noticed the grub menu would pop up every boot up giving the list of operating systems of which XP was included. I then ran the update manager and updated 9.10 with all updates. After rebooting the grub menu again showed but the option to choose XP was now gone.

Now everytime I boot up the grub menu shows. How can I modify grub so it will automatically just boot to the OS.

Ubuntu :: Kernel 2.6.38-1 Showing Up In 10.10 Grub Menu?

Mar 3, 2011

Last week i decided to give the 11.04 alpha 2 a go on my laptop but compiz is currently too unstable for the OS to be of any use so I reinstalled 10.10. In doing this I deleted all partitions and started completely afresh. Strangely since then I have kernel image 2.6.38-1 at the top of my grub menu but if i try to boot it i get either a single blinking cursor or a kernel freeze. I cant find any reason why 2.6.38-1 should be in grub on 10.10.

removing it from the config files as im not used to Grub2 and have been told i cant just directly remove it from /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

At least the DVD I downloaded a few days ago was nothing like the one that was downloaded on release, most worked I'm missing a couple of important things on the gnome menus, nothing on system>preferences or Admin for printing, I had to configure the printer directly with the CUPs admin panel. These no way to edit the menus, right clicking on the bar has no effect, and I haven't form menu-edit in the repos with yumex, or the gnome control pane. Have these been dropped in FC14 ?

Debian Installation :: Dead Keyboard - Can't Choose Any Items On Menu?

Feb 18, 2010

I downloaded one of the businesscard isos and booted up, but have run into the problem that my usb keyboard is dead in the installer. It works in setting up my bios, and has always worked before, but I cannot choose any items on the installation menu. I found a bug report that seems to be this issue, but it said that this would be fixed when debian moves to the 2.6.32 kernel on the installer.

Fedora Installation :: FC12 New Install / Top Menu Panel Missing Items

Mar 7, 2010

First off, I have spent several hours searching this and other forums looking for an answer to this, and have tried several things, none of which have fixed this issue. Here is what I'm seeing:I performed a new install of FC12 on a Thinkpad R40, 512Mb RAM, with a 40Gb HDD, 38Gb useable, from a live CD. That leaves a little over 9Gb free for expansion. All went well with the install, but the post-boot upgrade would not complete due to an error with the abrt files. I found a thread discussing this and used the suggested method of performing the updates from a shell, which worked fine. There were LOTS of installations, updates, and replacements, and finally the shell returned "Complete!". After a reboot I was going through the Fedora_12_ User_ Guide.pdf and noticed many items missing from the System Menu as described in section "The System menu". Another thread seemed to address a similar issue with su - then yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment", which I did. It updated over 870 items, then completed with no errors. At this point I logged out and back in, no change, and then tried a reboot, which also did not change anything. Finally, I'm appealing to the community.

Oct 16, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.

I recently modified the nautilus to show the trash icon as it didn't come by default on the Desktop.

I have a problem because the trash keeps showing items in it. When I put my mouse over it it keeps saying "6 items", however, when I open the trash it is totally empty.

sudo find / -name "Trash"
And couldn't find anything that let me fix this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Not Showing In Boot Menu ?

May 6, 2011

I just installed ubuntu 11.04 via wubi. the installation appears to have gone well but ubuntu doesnt appear as an OS choice when i boot up.

Its not a timeout issue as it is set to 30sec and i can see my other options (windows and a recovery option). the only thing i can think of is that my computer has a separate partition set up for recovery and i think that is screwing things up.

Here is my boot.ini:

My only guess is that since the recovery partition is the first partition that its causing problems.

General :: New Items On Desktop Aren't Showing Up Right Away

Apr 21, 2010

Recently, I'm having a problem with items not appearing on my desktop (at least not right away) after just being saved there, forcing me to either find them in a Konqueror window (they do show up there) or do some other unusual thing to make the desktop notice them. They used to, and as far as I know, they always should. For instance, I just took two screenshots with Ksnapshot, and told it to save them on my desktop. It saved them, but they didn't show up on the desktop. When I noticed that, I opened the desktop folder in Konqueror, and mainly to see what would happen, tried to drag the screenshot files from the Konqueror window onto the desktop (copying the files onto themselves). That made the desktop notice the files--they appeared. But of course I shouldn't have had to do it. What could be wrong?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Has No Menu.lst - ESC To Grub Menu / Solve This?

Feb 15, 2010

9.10 has no menu.lst file and hitting ESC to does not bring up the grub menu. How can we set bootup options or boot an alternate kernel? I would really like to set the resolution at boot time so that my console (Ctrl-Alt-F5, for example) has 80 columns instead of 40. (What a stupid default, gigantic Commodore-64-like text!) It would also be nice if the Login screen could be set to the resolution that I want.

In previous releases, there were ways to do this. In 9.10, I haven't been able to figure out how.

Is there a document explaining all of the radical changes?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Errors - More Than 1 Grub - The Change Does Not Appear In The Boot Up Menu

Dec 22, 2010

The first is I seem to have 3 GRUB installs. So whilst I update the one from my live session, the change does not appear in the boot up menu. I had installed 10.10 from a CD into a different partition (sda6), but that will not boot, so I have just deleted this and done another grub install and update. The kernel I am using has just been updated from 10.04 to 10.10 too, and it is this that I use and the Grub I have been working on (sda5).

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Menu Not Showing New Entry For FreeBSD

Jan 11, 2011

I've just installed FreeBSD 8.1 on /dev/sda4 (FreeBSD slice), without installing the boot loader from FreeBSD (I've selected None when prompted for boot loader in sysinstall). Now I want to use my existing Grub2 from already installed Ubuntu 10.10 to boot FreeBSD also.

After some reading, I've added to the end of /etc/grub.d/40_custom:

After running sudo update-grub, grup.cfg file shows my new entry. The problem is that after restart, I don't see the new entry in the grub menu.

Another question, If i used chainloader +1, that means I need to have the FreeBSD bootloader installed also on /dev/sda4 right? For chainloading booloaders?

I didn't get to that step, I first want to see the entry in the menu.

Any idea what I might be missing/misdoing? (I also checked for blank spaces in the menuentry like the wiki for grub2 says)
