Everything was working fine with dual boot sda/osuse 11.2 and sdb/kubuntu. Decided to install new 11.3. Lost dual boot, can now only boot to 11.3, sort expected that. I see the root and home partitions in Dolphin but can’t mount or open them? Would like to access the files copy to Osuse. Rite clik get me “error permission denied” I can reinstall Kubunt and it will set up my boot loader correctly with grub2, but is their a better quicker way? Why does Osuse still use the legacy grub?
Actually grub 2 is not recommended for production systems - but using it might be a fairly easy solution for you.
I’m using grub 2 right now on this Laptop that I just put Ub* on earlier today. I could switch to SUSE grub in about 2 minutes…blah…blah
But if you are using a grub 2 distro on a machine, I think it’s easier to use grub 2 for as long as you have it. For me, that’ll be a day or two…
Lost me. I dont know how to go back to grub2, Its used with all K ubuntu systems, but when I installed Osuse I lost the Kubuntu boot loader (grub2).
this link should help…
this is what you add to your menu.lst in grub legacy to get ubuntu on your opensuse boot splash screen:
#Don’t change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: none#
title Ubuntu 10.4 booting via symlinks
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda9 ro quiet splash
Make sure to adjust (hdX,Y), and /sdaZ to correspond with your systems information
good luck !
