Forgive me if this has been covered before - it probably has, but I am new to Ubuntu and Linux in general - only made the swap in last couple of months.
I have Mandriva installed on my wifes laptop, and for various reasons she wanted to replace her LinuxMint installation with Ubuntu.
When Ubuntu 11.10 installed, it recognised the Mandriva installation, and created entries in the grub bootloader for "linux (on dev/sda1)" which 'should' be the Mandriva but I get the error message "error: no such partition"
Under Mint (which is built on ubuntu) I could manually edit the /boot/grub/grub.cfg to correctly locate the partition (for some reason ubuntu does not set it right)
- Which config file do I need to correct?
- I am assuming I need to launch editor from terminal using sudo command to get root priviledges? I am guessing Ubuntu uses gedit too?
