I found the source in launchpad for 11.04 and 10.10 but I don't know how to install or compile it.
Update: The PPA mentioned below doesn't currently provide packages for 13.10/saucy and newer releases. You could try to install the 13.04/raring packages by modifying the corresponding sources.list file in
11.04 and 11.10
I can't answer directly how to compile the source. However, I've tested the following on a virtual guest install on oneiric.
Note if you look at the series available for the PPA it will tell you which distro version this PPA has been compiled for. At the time of writing - 11.04 (Natty), 11.10 (Oneiric), 12.04 (Precise)
as all stuff that changes your boot - back things up first with a good image backup
Now install the remaining packages:
During the installation you will be asked to select the drive you want to install on - press the spacebar to "*" the drive you want for example
First, install it:
Now, actually install it (replace hd0 with the device to install it to):
And update it:
And test it using the emulator:
Also worth looking at is Super-Boot-Manager, this allows you to configure Grub, Burg and Plymouth, through a simple GUI and a revert to GRUB option
I created a SourceForge program for doing this automatically.
Just remember to back up!
(Even though this worked fine for every PC I tested it on)
