KDE's Grub2 Editor is a powerful application that installs itself into the System Settings Module under the "Startup and Shutdown" section of KDE (and in our example, Kubuntu) and gives you control of your boot-time options as well as provide many other standard and advanced features that one will find very useful in taking advantage of Grub2's many features.
|Grub2 Editor Installed Into KDE's System Settings|
From the website:
|Grub2 Editor's 'General' tab allows you to do such things as choose the kernel |
to boot into and whether Grub should automatically probe
for other operating systems
|The 'Appearance' tab allows you to control such things |
as Grub boot resolution and colors, or to boot into text mode
|The 'Advanced' tab allows for passing kernel parameters |
as well as to recover your bootloader
We think this tool is invaluable for periodic management of your kernels as well as for managing and removing old entries, among others. All of which begs the question - Why isn't this module installed by default in Kubuntu? Simply put, we think it should be.
