Full Version: Mandrake And Hiding Files
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Jim
Ok, so Mandrake is loosing points with me here. It seems to be hiding files from me. Ok, it may be my fualt. But there is no grub.conf file anywhere on my computer. How am I suposed to make changes to my grub boot when my grub.conf file is no where to be found?

So, the question is, where is mandrake hiding my grub.conf file? I switched over to grub using the harddrake configure tools, not a really install of grub, I asume thats my problem.

There is a /usr/share/doc/grub-doc-0.93/menu.lst which is an example grub.conf (and menu.lst)

you can copy it to /boot/grub and create a link like this:

cd /boot/grub
cp /usr/share/doc/grub-doc-0.93/menu.lst .
ln -s menu.lst boot.conf


You will then need to edit the boot.conf (or menu.lst) and make the appropiate changes to get it to boot .... here is mine:
CODE
#
# Sample boot menu configuration file
#

# Boot automatically after xx secs.
timeout 10

# By default, boot the first entry.
default 0

# Fallback to the second entry.
# fallback 1

color cyan/blue white/blue

# For booting GNU/Linux

initrd /boot/initrd.img
