i need to increase the grub timeout from 3 seconds.
the posts on this topic are closed, so i can't add to them, so i'm creating a new post.
the previous posts don't work for me because:
1. i don't have an /etc/grub.conf
2. i don't have a /boot/grub/menu.1st
so there's nothing to edit. or if there is, i don't know which one to edit, and i'm not going the trial and error route.
i'm using debian, if that makes a difference, i don't know why it should.
then, i have a complaint, and that is that the editor in grub should allow me to change the timeout and the boot sequence, and it doesn't.
what do i have ?
i have an /etc/grub.d directory, and
i have a /boot/grub directory.
and please don't tell me to edit grub.cfg as the first few lines of this file read as follows:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
# It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
i'd appreciate any insight into this. thanks in advance.
