Replacing Grub with Burg on Linux Mint 11 (katya)
Asked by: agm
At the onset, I am brand new to Linux and I am working with Linux Mint 11 (Katya).
Thanks to your excellent instructions on how to “Dual-boot Linux Mint 11 and Windows 7″, I was able to successfully install Linux Mint 11 (Katya) on my Windows XP PC.
Then I decided to get fancy and execute your instructions for “How to replace Grub with Burg On Linux Mint 11″. This did not go so well – nothing catastrophic, just not the desired result. I still get the plain old boot selection screen. You will probably need to refer to those instructions for the below text to make sense.
I believe that the problem stems from not getting a response in the terminal when I hit the return key after the 3rd screen in the instruction appears. After a considerable wait time, I did not get the fourth “Configuring burg-pc” prompt that is depicted in the instruction.
Incidentally, after I executed each of the 3 commands, I did receive good EOJ. From what I could tell, there were no failure or error messages.
I killed the terminal screen. At a later time, I tried to execute the full instructions again, and again and maybe again.
Now I’m at a point where the results of the 3 commands I executed are recognized to be already completed by the system, if that makes sense, and I no longer get the first, or any of the, “Configuring burg-pc” screens that are depicted in the instruction. There is no error message, the terminal prompt returns.
My thinking is If there are commands that will reverse the activity of the 3 commands I initially issued in the instructions, I think that executing those “reversing” commands would get me back to square one so that I can start the entire instruction from the start.
Is my thinking correct and if so, could you please help me by providing these commands or some other solution so that I can replace Grub with Burg On Linux Mint 11?
I hope that this was not too confusing and thanks for taking the time to read this question.
