Ubuntu freezed after run Grub Customizer

Asked by Le Titus on 2012-03-07

Hello,

I got my laptop freezing after run Grub Customizer. Nothing I can do about it except pushing power button.

The installations were normal. First, I tried to install by adding the ppa, update and then sudo apt-get install grub-customizer. GC appeared in System -> Administration. When I clicked on that, my laptop just freezed. The second time, after udo apt-get remove grub-customizer, I tried to build GC from source. Everything was fine. Then when I did sudo grub-customizer, my laptop was freezed, again.

My ubuntu is Lucid Lynx (10.04 LTS) 64 bit.
I saw the same question here, but got no answer: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1664134&page=2
Thanks,
-Titus.

The problem may be because of hwinfo, which is executed by grub customizer to find out which resolutions are available on the grub menu.

Try to run it directly:

sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

If this freezes your laptop too, uninstall hwinfo - it's not a dependency but recommended (this is why it's installed automatically). You'll only lose the resolutions list (on the setting dialog).
