As I saw several threads in the last time (including my own) about problems with Grub after frugal install I want to post my solution here now.
The Installation of Frugal-GRUB using the Install-Script works fine but when trying to boot from the CF-Card / HD Drive the System hangs with message "Grub" and a blinking cursor.
How to solve:
- Boot up DSL From LiveCD or Pendrive again
- Mount your CF Card or Hard Drive where you did the Frugal Install and there
- Go to /boot/grub and edit "device.map" so there will be only one entry left. For me it was
You will have to modify it to your needs, ie when you installed to hda use "(hd0) /dev/hda"
- Now reinstall GRUB with the command
grub-install /dev/hdc --root-directory=/mnt/hdc1
Again you will have to modify the command to your needs...
If the Grub-Install-Script finishs without errors your frugal should boot correctly now...
Hope this thread might be of some help!
