Thread: Adding OpenSUSE 11.1 to my Ubuntu menu.lst

  1. #1

    Default Adding OpenSUSE 11.1 to my Ubuntu menu.lst

    I installed Ubuntu's boot loader (which I prefer) over OpenSUSE's, how ever SUSE is now no longer an option in the grub menu... What do I need to add to the menu.lst to get it to appear?

    Try an entry like this

    Code:
    title openSUSE 11.1
            root (hd0,7)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz-...
            initrd /boot/initrd.img-...

    Added the following to my menu.lst
    Code:
    title OpenSUSE 11.1
    root (hd0,8)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.7-9-default ro root=UUID=ddf62e2a-ec22-48b0-9f90-88774443101b quiet splash
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.7-9-default.img
    Selecting it gives me an Error 15 in grub.

    Ideas?

    Something in the kernel entry info is incorrect. I notice you used (hd0,8)
    I suggested 7
    Did you try 7?

    Or try
    If you remove the info and leave it like this

    Code:
    title openSUSE 11.1
            root (hd0,7)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz
            initrd /boot/initrd
    See what happens

    Code:

    title openSUSE 11.1
    root (hd0,7)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz
    initrd /boot/initrd

    Hi
    My 2c, I prefer to use something like
    Code:
    title openSUSE 11.1
    root (hd0,7)
    configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Then when things get updated, no need to have change this and that

    Oh and you can always set the delay to 0 and make it hidden...

    Actually Malcolm, good idea.
    But I think either should work so long as a specific kernel is not pointed to.
