Would I have to use a text editor to add a line to the /boot/grub/menu.list? The files are /etc/default/grub which contains the GRUB variables and the scripts in /etc/grub.d which are used to generate the menu entries.If so what happens if that kernel has not been properly recognised by Sabayon, would boot hang or loop? To update the boot script use: Sorry to question but are you sure grub 1.99 is the same as, or responds the same as, grub2.
Oh yes I am the only user/admin, which is probably a good thing! Chmod would not change the permissions on /boot/grub/.
The development team behind the Sabayon Linux computer operating system has made a habit of publishing new ISO builds of the OS at the end of a month for the one preceding it.

As I understand it there is no 'update-grub' on sabayon8 as it uses grub 1.99 so my latest Ubuntu kernel is not recognised on the boot options page and that page cannot be easily updated. GRUB2 is quite different and uses several files to generate its boot script.
Found background image: Found linux image: /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.2.0-sabayon Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.2.0-sabayon No volume groups found Found Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (10.04) on /dev/sda6 done [email protected] ~ $ This seems to getting somewhere but it does not tell me if it has found the latest kernel. Please note that "sudoers" seems to exist in theory but there is no group for it and, more importantly, man or info searches result in a fruitless result. The solution given worked fine until sabayon updated then sabayon would not boot but the previously obscured ubuntu kernel would.
