Restoring GRUB with Grub2

2010-08-10 Tue 19:44

It’s a one liner with grub2.

$ sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mount/point/of/root/ /dev/sdX

where sdX is sda,sdb,.. depending on which hard-drive it is on.

This is the first instance when I found grub2 to be better than grub.


Telugu Rendering in Ubuntu…

I had problems with this and tried quite a few things to get it working… [uninstalling and re-installing packages… downloading fonts.. etc.. ] but couldn’t until I found help here
[Apparently there’s a bug in the Pothana font (in Feisty)]

[ Don’t worry if you can’t figure out what’s the big deal in linking to an already existing post.. :P]
