Installing GFX Grub in Ubuntu Jaunty. No response in Launchpad. Someone Pls respond.


Hi Guys,

I've been trying to install GFX-Grub for the past 4 months and I have not been able to do so. I have ext4 partition for my Ubuntu. I followed the instructions from http://tuxenclave.wordpress.com/2008...rub-in-ubuntu/ and then after typing find /boot/grub/stage1 I got an error File not Found even though I can actually see the file in /boot/grub/.
What do I do??
Pls guide me.

Does GFX Grub support ext4? That posts predates ext4 support in Ubuntu by more than a year. In fact, it predates the merge of stable ext4 code into the kernel by 11 months, so most likely, that version of GFX Grub doesn't support ext4.

I have no idea of whether it supports for ext4 or not.But even if someone can help me to install it for a ext3 partition that would be great.

Have you tried it on an ext3 partition? The directions you linked should work for that.

Ya I tried it on ext3 also but I had the same problem.Then I came to know that the package on that website is an old one & you need a newer version for it through ubuntuforums website.So I downloaded the neweest version & then everything went right but after the reboot I got the same old grub.

Now I am unable to find a latest version that would support for ext4 & even if I did find it I need someone to make sure even after all the procedure I don't get the same old grub.

Why is it so important to get GFX Grub up? From what I've seen, it's no longer under active development, but I could be wrong. Maybe there's another way to achieve your goals.

If you google, there are about a million different tutorials. However, I found none of them to work all that well for me.

I wouldn't reccomend this for everyone, but I installed openSUSE with GFX on a different partition, had it install the bootloader, then just cut and pasted the lines from my menu.lst into the SUSE boot file. Worked like a charm. Haven't tried it with Jaunty, though...
