    I can't figure out how to any thing with suse...

    I type:
    Code:
    su root
    password: type the password
    vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
    (it syas its being used, or something, I press E (edit anyway))
    and it doesn't show all the document..

    I dunno how to mount in suse.. So right now if you can give me the commands to load Kubuntu grub menu, I can do all the command stuff alot better in Kubuntu.

    Thanks In Advance

    To access kubuntu grub menu - one off to make changes

    At grub menu press escape to exit menu then c for command prompt and type
    Code:
    root (hd0,9)
    configfile=/boot/grub/menu.lst
    That should bring up kubuntu grub menu and allow you to start kubuntu.

    Once you start kubuntu mount the openSUSE partition open a terminal and edit openSUSE grub menu.lst file. I think openSUSE will mount to /media/sda7 so to edit the file use
    Code:
    sudo nano /media/sda7/boot/grub/menu.lst

    Code:
    root (hd0,9)

    and you should get the kubuntu grub menu.

    To make modifications in openSUSE

    Start Yast, select yast->system->bootloader
    and you should have an option to edit the configuration files ... you can then paste the extra entries in the menu.lst file.

    Ed: any one of the last three posts should allow you to make the changes you want

    It won't let me save the file.. even though I'm using sudo. I tried kate, and nano, can't save the file. Also the ubuntu grub things are what i added, but they don't work. that was then when i came to the forums for help.

    Right now I switched back to kubuntu grub menu, so i boot from everything but ubuntu, I think when i entered the ubuntu into the grub menu.lst i entered something wrong, cause a i said i can't boot up from them.

    Yast is openSUSE only.

    From kubuntu open a terminal and enter
    Code:
    sudo -s
    mkdir /media/sda11
    mount /dev/sda11 /media/sda11
    ls /media/sda11/boot
    ls /dev/disk/by-uuid -l
    and post output of two ls commands, lets see if we can get Ubuntu to boot.

    I'm not sure if you have resolved this problem, but your last post shows no intrd file in the /boot directory of Ubuntu and it should be there.
