BURG on Arch Linux

Hi,

I have both arch linux and ubuntu installed on my machine. I saw BURG on omgubuntu.co.uk* and installed it on ubuntu. BURG is a eye-candy grub replacement (it's also based on grub).

Then I tried to install BURG on arch linux as well. There is packages on AUR, burg-bzr and burg-themes. As I understood from Ubuntu, no other package is necessary for BURG to work. I installed burg with command burg-install (just like grub) after I configured burg.conf. But you know what, it didn't work tongue I tried something and couldn't get it working.

Is there anyone built and run burg without any problem I wonder?

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

The burg-bzr PKGBUILD installs everything in /opt/burg. I think it should be configured with --prefix=/
Anyway, I installed BURG, but I cannot get it to detect the OS.

# burg-mkconfig -o /boot/burg/burg.cfg
Generating burg.cfg ...
Found theme: /boot/burg/themes/radiance/theme
done

/usr/bin/drinking

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

I tried once and had to boot to my trusty arch liveUSB to save the day by reinstalling GRUB. roll
I still want to use it though, black dull backgrounds are cool and geeky but I need color in my life lol hehe

Do want http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/06/dark … cuous.html
I envy Ubuntu sometimes for having a working Plymouth in addition to easy BURG. Wouldn't trade that for arch though..

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

I don't think that it is too difficult. But nowadays I don't have enough time to try to get it working (it requires to reboot each time you change a thing to test). May be someone could figure it out and tell everybody. Packages are -almost- ready, I think configuring is the missing part.

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

Have anyone here tried BURG the bootloader with the eye candy,
I just want to know if there is any quirks, cause this is a bootloader,
and if this part gone haywire, I'll be in a helpless situation.

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

Looks fancy big_smile

There is a package in the AUR but it looks ropey. Perhaps give a helping hand in improving it... but you've at least got a starting point:

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

I got the one off the aur to work sans eye-candy, which kind of defeats the purpose. : /

Please use the search function, there was a recent somewhat long thread about burg.

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

I tried it a couple of months back. Before you use this bootloader, it might be good idea to familiarize yourself with grub2. Burg works with Arch, but it requires some tweaking. I had to define a separate OS class for Arch as it was not identified by default, and also had to modify some themes to use custom class and logo. Also the pkgbuild has some errors, but on most systems it should build fine.

Re: BURG on Arch Linux

@Mr. Elendig: I actually did search and all I found is one thread with only 5 replies, so I'm hoping for a more informative experience from others.

@shemz: That doesn't sound good, so out-of-the-box is not promising?

You really should create a PKGBUILD, since make/make install without a package inside a system must never be allowed - especially an essential program like a bootloader. Check the PKGBUILD proto, inside the pacman package.
