Hi, I cannot tick Windows as default boot choice. It unticks itself & only Pardus 2009.2 can be set as default. This did not happen in Pardus 2007 & 2008.

Thanks.

In Dolphin, when I'm at /boot/grub/ and open Terminal, I tried
- entering "su" & password
- then "kwrite edit grub.conf"

but I get this error "bash: kwrite: command not found". How come?

I had to copy "grub.conf" file to my Home directory, to change 1st line "default 0" to "default 1". Then open Terminal:
- enter "su" & password
- then "cp grub.conf /boot/grub/" to copy & overwrite the file

What does "bash: kwrite: command not found" error mean?

It's a known bug and an update of boot-manager will fix it. It will be released soon.

kwrite is not in root's path.

Hi, yeow,

I do not know how to add kwrite to root's path using the command line, but Pardus provides a nice workaround using the GUI. First, check to see whether the package kde-servicemenu-rootactions is installed; if not, go ahead and install it. Next, use Dolphin to navigate to your desired directory and file, e.g., /boot/grub. If you want to open/edit the file menu.lst with Kwrite, right-click on that file, and then choose Root actions > Open as Text. Kwrite will proceed to open the file.

(Many thanks to atolboo for passing on that tip to me a few months ago).

If you want to experiment further, you'll see that if you become the root user from the command line (as you did before), you will be able to open/edit that file with either vim or Emacs. I have very basic knowledge of Emacs -- enough to edit configuration files, if necessary -- but vim scares the pants off me. However, with atolboo's workaround, you'll be able to comfortably edit such files with Kwrite ...

HTH,

Thanks for all the information given.

Thanks kalwisti for providing a workaround. If I require to edit anything else at root (touchwood! I hope no more), I'll definitely give it a try. Smiley
