Managing BURG with BURG-Manager

BURG-Manager is a graphical interface for managing BURG, the new bootloader that is based on GRUB, the GRand Unified Bootloader. It is a very simple application with many features, but the user interface is not going to win any style points from an honest evaluator.

Here are just a few screenshots to show the features of this application. The screenshots were taken from a test installation of Chakra Edn 2011.11, the latest release of Chakra. BURG is the default boot loader on Chakra, but BURG-Manager is not installed. If you like BURG and you are using Ubuntu, or a distribution derived from it, here”>how to replace GRUB with BURG gives a step-by-step guide on how to do just that for your distribution. Note: BURG-Manager is still very buggy, so thread with care.
