Migrate ROSA to Grub2.
Grub2 itself is successfully built for ROSA and can be safely used as a default bootloader. Currently we are working on themes for it.
We have a choice of two tools at the moment:
kcm-grub2 is a module for KDE Control Center; other environments might prefer to use grub-customizer (though note that kcm-grub2 can be launched as a separate application in any DE using kcmshell4).
We have to update bootloader-utils that depend on drakxtools. Scripts from bootloader-utils are used when bootloader config should be regenerated - e.g., when a kernel is installed or removed.
Where to get
- for 32bit systems:
urpmi.addmedia icedphoenix_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/icedphoenix_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/i586/main/release
- for 64bit ones:
urpmi.addmedia icedphoenix_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/icedphoenix_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/x86_64/main/release
- Now you can install grub2 and tools:
urpmi grub2 kcm-grub2 grub-customizer
- After that I strongly recommend to remove the media, since there are experimental builds of some core packages there that can damage your system:
