kubuntu karmic grub2 and kernels menu set timeout


-.-” shift didn’t work to enter on kernels menu…

grub2 guide

to edit time out

kdesudo kate  /etc/default/grub

Set the valuel:

GRUB_TIMEOUT=10

exit and save now

sudo update-grub

END!!

 

the fist time i had this problem i did

sudo nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg

and change

this part

### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###
if keystatus; then
if keystatus –shift; then
set timeout=-1
else
set timeout=5
fi
else
if sleep –interruptible 3 ; then
set timeout=5
fi
fi

NOTE i have set 5 second … anyway.. even if i don’t click shift…

then

### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/00_header ###
set default=0

should set the default kernel

0 stands for the first kernel you find on the file … i think…

    One additional to ensure that it won’t get “automatically corrected” during the next kernel update, edit /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober and make the same adjustments you list above. Then run update-grub (or update-grub2 same program) to get this into grub.cfg

    HTH

    I found another solution change the value of GRUB_TIMEOUT in the file “/etc/default/grub” and then run update-grub (from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2)
