[SOLVED] How to Change Grub Boot Options Parameters
Posted 17 November 2012 - 04:10 AM
How to change the boot options in grub entries? I got a solution to my previous problem where I need to press "E" on the Bodhi boot option in grub and add "nolapic" after "ro" in the options.
I want to add that option there permanently, so I won't have to edit it every time I reboot, but I'm having trouble figuring out what exactly to edit.
After googling around, I found that options are in grub.cfg file, but get rewritten when update-grub is run, so I need to edit one of the files in /etc/grub.d/, but those files have a gazillion of lines and I have no idea which one to edit.
I don't really have the time to become a grub configuration expert; could someone with knowledge, please, point my face in what needs to be edited?

to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nolapic"
Save file, then update-grub
But if your computer/BIOS is less than 5 years old, you need to check why you need nolapic for it.

I think my motherboard is simply dying. It used to work fine without nolapic for almost a year on Bodhi and for about 3 years on Ubuntu before that, but then started freezing unless I use the nolapic.
