Ubuntu 9.10 Grub Settings
Ok, this is probably a dead easy one, but it got me a bit :confused:
With a fresh, default install of Ubuntu Karmic I get a copy of Grub 1.97~beta4. It has a load of memtest and kernal choices, I don't need em, but nor do I care that they are there. The problem is, that this install unlike other installs of the same version I have done, doesnt have a countdown before using the default. It just sits there forevermore, until you pick one.
I've worked out that the old /boot/grub/menu.lst has gone in favour of /etc/default/grub. Below is what the file contains:
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entrys
The only difference with this install to all my previous ones that have the coundown is that it is virtual (hosted with VMWare on Windows XP) - would this make any difference? I can't imagine it would but maybe I'm missing something...
Or of course I might just be being daft with the config file above.
