Fixing my GRUB mistakes
May 1, 2007
I reverted to the original /boot/grub/menu.lst file (glad I made that backup!) and change the default to 4 (Windows XP), enabled hidden menus and turned on pretty colors (just because I could). Rebooted and things worked great. Thanks for the help.
I’ve spent some time considering what my next step should be and I have three things I want to accomplish:
Become proficient at developing using a fairly standard toolset (this is mostly about shell and editor familiarity) – vi, emacs and bash.
Develop a simple Firefox extension (theory is that this will cover a good bit of territory while still being a very approachable project).
Go into “command a day” mode where I learn about a single command each day (I picked up Linux in a Nutshell) and write a test script (or at least come up with a scenario) where I use that command.
Nothing crazy – but something that will produce at least one new thing per day (even if it’s just a command).
I’m pretty sure I know what the Firefox extension will be but I want a night to mull it over so I don’t get into more than I want right now. The goal is success not to overwhelm myself.
