I'm trying to rearrange the grub menu in Kubuntu 9.10 (similar to this post), but unfortunately, Kubuntu includes the latest (and NOT greatest) version of grub, which no longer uses the elegant menu.lst. ARG! So anyway, I'm digging around in /etc/grub.d and I can't figure out how to rename the files in order to get them to boot in another order.
(on a side note, I can't get xPUD to show up in the boot list... but that is a little less important)
So why doesn't it work to do
sudo grub in the terminal? (that seems to be the easiest option, but that doesn't work either.)
Further, why can't I rename the files?
- Do I need to do it in the terminal? If so, how do I rename the file with the terminal?
- Can I run Dolphin (or Konqueror or whatever) as root (or su)?
- And don't tell me I need to try CHMOD first; I already tried that, and I still couldn't rename the file.
