WHere is mandriva boot loader pse?
I usually put bootloaders into the root partitions of my distros. These are usually stored in /boot/grub/menu.lst.
having recently installed mandriva, I installed Grub into the root partition. I've been gettting familiar with mandriva. I now want to edit (tidy up) the mandriva bootloader but I cant find a /boot/grub/menu.lst file.
/boot/grub contains just two files: a Grub splash file and a menu.lst.example (which is not the menu.lst I am using).
I've searched for menu.lst but without success.
Can anyone pse tell; me what is it called in mandriva / where is it stored?
I've searched around, inc the Grub manual but cant find a reference to where it is stored.
still cant find bootloader
daark.child / fingal
Thanks for the replies.
I am using Grub - not LILO.
I had already tried to find it using GREP and FIND.
I tried both variations of FIND you suggested fingal, but none of the files listed is the right one.
It is not causing me any bother - I just want to remove unnecessary entries from the bootloader - but I would like to know where this is stored in case I need to make a real change to it at some stage.
I feel like an idiot!!!!!!!!!!
daark.child, fingal, Kojak
I've discovered why I cant find /grub/menu.lst - apparently I selected Lilo (or did not specify Grub) at installation.
I found my bootloader file in /etc/lilo.conf.
I would have bet my favourite golf club that I selected Grub - I must be slipping.
Thanks for your replies.
