If I have several distros installed, how can I change which one is the default to boot into? As far as I can tell running update-grub only detects installed distros. I don't see where I can modify the default boot distro. I repartitioned my comp over the weekend and currently have:
/sda1 - Win7
/sda5 - swap
/sda6 - Chakra
/sda7 - future distro
/sda8 - future distro
/sda9 - future distro
/sda10 - future distro
I noticed that if I boot into Win7, the next time the comp boots up it boots on Win7, and the same with Chakra. I want to keep my default boot - Chakra, the same no matter what I booted into last.
I'm very familiar with original grub and edited the menu all the time as I installed/unstalled multiple distros. I'd like to be able to do the same with Chakras grub2. The alternative is to install PClinuxOS and use it's grub as I have been doing for years.
Thanks for any help/info.
Edit /etc/default/grub so that the line GRUB_DEFAULT=saved reflects the number of the menu entry of the OS you wish to use as default, counting from 0.
You can do it by name also
GRUB_DEFAULT='Chakra Linux, with Standard-Kernel'
After this you will need to run sudo update-grub to write these changes to /boot/grub/grub.cfg
