Re: How to install OpenCPN

Bummer!
In my innocence I installed version5 from the repo and it is very flaky - should be removed from the repo.
Not really disastrous for me because of course I do not use this big desktop machine on the boat.
4.8.2 was fine.

Re: NO 1

Nobody should click the link in the post above.
Moderators should delete the link, or perhaps the entire post (or the entire thread).

Re: Grub2 menu customisation[SOLVED]

OK, I will not "update-grub". And will stop trying to improve my existing grub menu which already gives me access to ten working OSs (including MSWindows).

Re: Grub2 menu customisation

Thanks.
One more question: if I don't manage to remove them will they be resuscitated when I update-grub?
Or if I install another OS?
