Description:

Reboot from KDE directly into another OS.

FEATURES

It allows you to reboot from KDE directly to another OS, such as Windows, by bypassing the normal GRUB boot menu.

It reads your menu entries directly from your GRUB configuration, so changes to your configuration are automatically included.

There are no hard-coded limits to how many menu entires it will allow.

It contains a string table, to allow for easy translation to your native language.

All file paths in the script are stored in variables, so they are easy to change if you have an unusual system (compared to SuSE).

The script can automatically reboot immediately or allow you to reboot manually later by the normal logout/shutdown methods.

When told to reboot immediately, it shuts down your session safely according to your KDE session management settings.

The script makes use of kdialog, so it will respect your look & feel preferences.

The script will auto-install an icon on your desktop.

The script will work on systems with either menu.lst or grub.conf menu files.

The script is well-documented (I hope), and contains installation instructions.

Send bug reports to my e-mail--I don't check this page often.

Reports of a serious bug in nextboot were determined to be due to a misconfigured grub, not any problem in nextboot.

 Nice app, but...

Very nice concept...

However, is there a way to run this thing from somewhere other than the desktop? I have a link on my panel, but every time I run it, it simply generates a link on my desktop.

My desktop already has enough icons on it, and I would prefer not to have NextBoot there too.

Is there a way around this?

Read documentation in the script. You are looking for:

# Set to "TRUE" if you don't want an icon on your desktop, like if you already had one, but moved it to the panel or a custom menu
$DO_NOT_INSTALL_ICON = undef; # "TRUE" | undef

 BIOS and 65535 cyls

 
 by boris67 on: Aug 27 2005
 
Score 50%

Booting from inside a functioning Linux can help avoid the problem of large disks. It is called the 137-GB problem or 32-GB problem, but the essence is the same - BIOS cannot work with disks that have more than 2^16 cylinders. I have the 81.9 GB Maxtor 6Y080L0 disk which is arranged as 158816 cylinders, 16 heads and 63 sectors. Unfortunately, BIOS sees only those parttitons which start in the upper third of the disk.
I have not yet tested the script.If it boots without resorting to disk BIOS functions, there is a chance that it will boot the partitions not accessible from BIOS.

Best wishes

 As in Mandriva

 
 by wolfalex on: Jun 3 2006

Hi,

I find your program very interesting. But what I want is to have something similar to Mandriva. In Mandriva when you click on the shutdown button in the KDE menu and choose to reboot, it appears a list with the next operating system to reboot with. Is there any way to integrate this program with the normal KDE shutdown button?

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
