I've got a few questions about Linux applications and duel booting two hard-disks...
(1)How come no matter how many times I install an application, it doesn't show up in xfce4 menu ? I can't seem to locate it and I forgot the terminal command to locate it...
(2) Okay so my Dad found his old external hard-drive and gave me the hard-disk with free-BSD on it. I'm planning on shutting down the computer and connecting the second hard-disk a little while into the night, and what I was wondering if how do I set up the boot manager GRUB to dual boot the two hard-disk before shutting down this computer and connecting the other hard-disk ? Can I change something in the script for GRUB or is anything else I could do ?
It's probably easier just to change the boot order in your BIOS, but failing that, here's the grub commands
where (hdX,Y) is the relevant partition to boot from
What I'm wanting to do is configure the GRUB into letting me choose between the two hard-disk when I add the second hard-disk. But I don't want it to give an error or automaticly boot into my Debian box.
Any help on either question would be okay, but I'm more comfortable in asking AFF before I go on some IRC chat-room and possibly get sneered at.
P.S: On the first question about the missing application, I keep installing Terminator X a music manipulation program with Synaptic, but it doesn't show up in the menu at all. Is there something going wrong with the installation ? I'm going to check the install log to see if I could figure it out.
