That depends on whether your machine has sufficient ram to hold all the
software (OS,Applications) and data in memeory. If you have 4 or 8 GB
of ram probably nothing will happen and you won't notice any difference.

On a machine with little ram (under 2GB) you will notice slower performance.

[LINUX_Newbies] Re: Removal of linux partition

 

here running
$ apt-cache search grub

turns up a package called
grub-choose-default - Control Grub Default through a GUI

in Debian Squeeze. I wonder if that is what they meant?

The link James shows is the source file .tgz, I think on launchnet.

My favorite way is to install Grub Customizer.  That is one of the many things it will do.  https://launchpad.net/grub-customizer.  It is a GUI editor specifically for Grub2.

Well, there is a link on the page for "Ubuntu."  That is what I have used for Debian and Uburntu based distros and it works well.  I like the product so much that I want to install the PPA (Personal Package Archives) that made the product part of regular updates.  You will hear people state that PPAs are dangerous because they are from the community.  It depends on the stability of the source.  Plus, isn't everything we use in Linux pretty much from a community somewhere?  Can you say Debian?  How about Fedora?

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] Removal of linux partition

 

well I had a still better idea.  I took robolinux off and installed mint 17......all the problems went away.  I think robolinux isn't ready for prime time....nice idea, tho.  Being debian based it has some problems.  Thanks for all the help.
