Wrong UUIDs in grub.cfg
#1
After installing to my hard drive, nothing would boot of the 3 distros available in the Liquid Lemur menu from the root partition..
The installation did install correctly to the root partition since I have Grub legacy installed on a separate partition to boot the 30 or so distros I have on my 3 HDs.
Despite the fact that chainloader from my main grub menu did bring me to the Liquid Lemur grub2 menu, all the UUIDs in it were incorrect.
When I manually edited the grub.cfg file from another distro to change to the correct UUIDs, Liquid Lemur booted fine.

Formerly used Saline & DreamLinux as my main distros. Now it's bluestar & Siduction while I see how Lemur pans out.

Okay, it installed fine on multiple machines here and booted up without issue. Did install Grub during the install?

The installer is a newer/updated version of the old Lemur installer. I may go back to the old one or look at possibly making a new one. I actually have a prototype of one I wrote, but never finished.

Anyway, I'll take a peek at the grub code tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know.

It might be that the 3 hard drives that I have confused things. I installed via the Install option on the live dvd.
Yes it did install the grub2.

Okay, thanks for the update. I'll be taking a peek at the code in a bit. I'll keep you posted.

Well, it seems there are multiple swap partition UUIDs referenced on the Live disc, as well as the Live build reading my drive configs. I usually delete my drive configs from the Live disc after it's built. Apparently, I forgot this time. Big Grin  I don't know if that is what caused your issue, but I'll clean it up for the next release and see what happens.

I've been away from building Lemur for a bit so it might take awhile to get back into the swing of things.
