I can tell you that root (hd1,0) is not correct for the menu.list on the FlashDrive. It should be root (hd0,0) unless you're not booting from the first partition If you have the UUID's correct. And if the delay is long enough. Change the root designation and try to boot. If it doesn't, then try a lo...

grub-customizer does make GRUB 2 a lot more user-friendly. About the only complaint I have is that it picks up (for instance) 4 different memtest entries when dealing with only one OS. They are easily eliminated, but for a multi-boot setup there are a lot of extraneous entries that have to be remove...

As for ownership attributes, my understanding is that FAT has none so they are not transferred from Ext, NTFS, etc. to a FAT32 (or any FAT) file system. The UUID of the FlashDrive is written into it's file system so that it will show up as the same UUID in any computer it's plugged into. NTFS does h...

The LTS releases are not a true rolling release. They are updated/upgraded through that period. As stated all the rolling releases that I'm aware of are based on Testing or Sid. kubuntu 14.04 LTS will remain upgradable within their repositories for about 3 years. Arch or Gentoo may be more of a roll...

As you've noted rolling distributions are going to be based on Testing....so these two criteria (stability and rolling) are not compatible. Some are based on Sid which is even less desirable for a reliable system. debian is going to support Stable for a longer period of time now so that's a plus. A ...

I run it on Mepis 11 64 bit. I'll probably keep Mepis 11 around just for that.

inxi will show what driver is being used. My guess is that it's using vesa which just isn't very fast.

If you only want Linux to access the drive then Ext (Ext2 is fine for a FlashDrive) is alright. If you need Windows to access it then you probably should use NTFS. The second link I gave will have instructions for convering FAT32 to NTFS. If it's not a problem losing what's on the drive then a simpl...

Have to be sedated....I've had an MRI and while I can handle that for a short time it takes some concentration and I can't open my eyes while I'm in it.
