Managing The GRUB Bootloader With QGRUBEditor On Ubuntu 7.10 - Page 2
On the GRUB Settings tab, we can modify the global GRUB settings (like setting the default kernel to boot, setting a splash image, etc.):
You can modify a kernel stanza by going to the GRUB Entries tab again and double-click a kernel. You will get to a form with the values of the selected kernel; make your changes and click on OK:
Below the menu bar, you can find some interesting buttons:
The View Input button opens the Input window...
... which shows details about your hard drive and the partitions on the Device Input tab...
... and the contents of /boot/grub/menu.lst on the Menu Input tab:
The Add Entry button allows you to add a new kernel stanza:
If you click on it, the following form opens where you can fill in the details of your new kernel stanza:
The Edit Entry button allows you to modify an existing kernel stanza (as shown before):
The Copy Entry button lets you duplicate an existing kernel stanza (which you can then use as a template, for example):
The Remove Entry button removes the selected kernel stanza from the GRUB configuration:
The Scan File button reloads the current /boot/grub/menu.lst file:
The Encrypt Password button lets you set a password for the bootloader - this makes sense if you don't want anyone else to boot your computer:
The Create GRUB Splash Image button lets you set a different splash image:
With the Backup File button, you can back up the current /boot/grub/menu.lst...
... and with the Restore File button, you can restore /boot/grub/menu.lst from a previous backup:
The Delete Backup button lets you delete a backup:
When you click on the Settings button...
... you can configure the QGRUBEditor settings (not the GRUB settings!):
When you click on the What's This? button, you can afterwards click on any other item in the QGRUBEditor interface, and an explanation will pop up for that item:
The About QGRUBEditor button brings up some detailed information about the QGRUBEditor program:
