Question grub mod files show as music file type for Linux Mint 8 gnome


In the /boot/grub/ all the grub mod files show as music file type for Linux Mint 8. So is it really needed to correct this, and how to change this file type from some music application to the grub module file type association ? Thanks

No.
Is it broke or something?, do you want to fix something not broken?

I would just like to know how to change file types associations in Linux. And since the new grub 2 has that module feature with those mod files, it may be a new grub file type, which can be changed from a music file type.

Question

Like in Windows XP there is Folder Options, then file types to view or to change file type associations, is there a Linux version of that ability?

You can change associations in gnome per application. Are you seeing this association in a file manager?

It is when the root of the file system is opened with the my computer, so just browsing the folders to here; /boot/grub and the mod files have icons which show them as music files.
