Very nice and useful program! also, thanks to all the packagers who made this easily available for distributions. I wish all KDE-apps devs did this!

You should thank the openSUSE Build Service. I made all packages using this great web service. Packages are essential for the product to get to the end users ;)

Yepp I figured so. I wish it was a requirement to use this service in order to publish apps here, in addition to the source code. At lease for the current and LTS versions of Kubuntu and also for the last few SUSE releases. It really is appreciated =)

Sorry, I can't reproduce it this time. Tried both Kubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 and I get the proper string: Ubuntu.

If this is reproducible to you, can you please post your /etc/default/grub and /boot/grub/grub.cfg (using http://paste.kde.org would be nice). Also mention your kcm-grub2 version and installation source.

Thanks!

Try downloading the package once again and do the following: launch kcm-grub2, copy/paste `lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` at the Distributor field replacing the existing contents (note that it has to start and end with ` not ') and apply. There is something wrong with your setup, GRUB_DEFAULT should be automatically set to "saved"; this is the expected behaviour from v0.4.5 and on.

If the problem persists let me know.

 Bug on Gentoo?

 
 by Katzefu on: May 12 2011
 
Score 50%

Hi, I encountered a strange thing.
I am running on Gentoo, and it seems from a first rough look at the code that the os-prober does not get triggered properly.

My setup:
multiboot system
1 gentoo
1 ubuntu natty
1 windows

both linux systems are partitioned, with separate /usr, /var, /boot partitions.

If I hit apply, so mkgrub-config gets called, only entries for the gentoo system are generateded, no other OS will be found.

If I run my wrapper script from console, containing the mkgrub-config command, everything will get detected.

I am trying to track down this behavior atm in a debug session.

It works on Ubuntu.

Is there any dependency missing?

The os-prober is not part of this software. You say you are using a custom wrapper script. Can you post it somewhere so that I can get a better understanding of what is going wrong? You may use http://paste.kde.org so that the comments section is not polluted with large pastes.

Sorry, I forgot, I will check on ubuntu again to make sure, which I am not anymore about ubuntu after the post. Ubuntu is only my "back up" system.
I will post an update next time I boot ubuntu. :)

Another small thing:

I recall, when I first installed v3.x
on first run, the module could not find any /etc/default/grub, since it does not exist by default on a fresh gentoo install.
Don't know it that little one was fixed in the updates with "if not exists then create default" ...

I am afraid I didn't get you. If the default configuration file is missing you are presented with the option to manually browse for it.

The browsing for the default file is useless if there does not exist /etc/default/grub

I mean, it'd be nice if the core checked for and created a default file, similar call as saving the file to /etc/default/grub.
No problem to create one manually, but as for a gui, it should do that for that user in my view.

The wrapper script is similar to the ubuntu update-grub in /usr/sbin

So thats the script:

#!/bin/sh
set -e
exec grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg "$@"

My guess, it has something to do with my partitioning.

Anyway, nice work so far. :)

Yea.In Fedora there is the error /bin/sh: grub-mkconfig: not found. That's probably because in Fedora this command has form: grub2-mkconfig. Need a patch

A temporary solution is to soft-link the executables in /usr/bin (not in /sbin!):

Quote:

sudo ln -s /sbin/grub2-mkconfig /usr/bin/grub-mkconfig
sudo ln -s /sbin/grub2-set-default /usr/bin/grub-set-default


Also point the application to the right configuration files:
/boot/grub2/grub.cfg instead of /boot/grub/grub.cfg,
/boot/grub2/grubenv instead of /boot/grub/grubenv

The next version will include a fix for this. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but there hasn't been any testing/feedback on Fedora other than yours :)

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.
