Set the distributor to `lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` (including the backquotes), save & update GRUB.

I'm not sure how this has happened. Any other clues?

1) Yeah it's pretty convenient, but at the moment I only use it for source packaging when releasing. openSUSE build service does a better job for .deb and .rpm packaging.

2) Thanks :)

It seems to be an issue with natty, cause I tested on a fresh installation of maverick and installed smoothly.

Thanks for your package once again, just a few tips: when building use the -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release switch like this:

Quote:
cmake ~/path/to/source -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release


This strips debug symbols from the shared module/binary and makes the package a lot smaller.

Moreover, you are missing some dependencies:

Build-Depends: cmake, kdelibs5-dev (>= 4:4.4.0), libmagickcore-dev, libmagick++-dev, libhd-dev, libqapt-dev
Depends: kdebase-runtime (>= 4:4.4.0), grub-common, libmagickcore3, libmagick++3, libhd16, libqapt-runtime

That's the full dependency list to enable all available features.
Once again thanks :)

There are already natty packages in the official repositories. They are just outdated (v0.3.0). I hope they will update them soon.

 Feature request

 
 by Eol on: May 1 2011
 
Score 50%

First of all, what is the "Distributor" for in this KCM? (yeah, I know, it appends to the beginning of Linux entries found for current running Linux) I mean, why do somebody want to change this string?

And one more thing: is it possible to add something like "Expert mode" with ability to add/modify/disable (I mean, remove executable bit) files in "/etc/grub.d/" (and, maybe, /etc/default/grub) using the GUI?

And thanks for the work. I use good old console + VIM to configure grub2, but it is great for the new Linux users to have such a thing in systemsettings :)

For the first question don't ask me, ask the GRUB developers, it is them who put this option ;)

Regarding the second question, what would be the use of such a feature? Other than disabling memtest on Kubuntu I can't think of anything else.

I guess they left it for distributors and package maintainers, to simple don't hardcode the distribution name in code, so I don't think it will be used by any user :)

Well, for example I had to edit these files to add some "915resolution" related lines (it's some intel-bios hack to use specific resolution in grub, I used it to set the 1366x768x32 resolution :P)
Another purpose is to modify the "/etc/grub.d/40_custom" file - it is obvious that someone may need it.
On the other hand, those who need to edit these files may be good in linux enough to edit it manually.

Well, yeah that's the point. I will add an option to remove the executable bit from memtest but for the other files it won't make much sense, any user that knows such stuff can manually edit these files.

I too am making use of 40_custom but adding custom entries from within the UI won't be implemented any time soon. Other features are more important at the moment.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
