Boot loader changes

Asked by Sebastian Geiger on 2007-04-19

i have installed sues 10.2 on my other pc and then installed the ubuntu server 6.10 to see if it would do better than my suse.
after installation however i found that the installed had overridden my bootloader and now ubuntu server is the default choice.
how do i change back that suse 10.2 is booted on default.
i already tried to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file but there only the suse installations are written. where is the complete list?

Regards Lanoxx

I figured that i had to reboot into the ubuntu server installation to be able to edit the
/boot/grub/menu.lst
although these are one and the same file, yet there seem to be different out puts depending on which os i boot.
i then changed the :

default 0 --> to
default saved

no it works

You want use the grub of Suse 10.2, to do it you can enter in the Suse 10.2 and open a yast session. When you in yast, you must find the boot loader icon, open the yast grub manager, you must modify the parameters, you must add the corret ubuntu vmlinuz link.
After the tool reinstall the suse grub.

Thanks
