I followed the tutorial to get packages from the Backport channels right after installing Netrunner 19.01.
Towards to the end of installing the packages the installation process stopped and dialog window indicated the following text:
Replacing config file /etc/default/grub with new version
The grub-pc package is being upgraded. This menu allows you to select which
devices you’d like grub-install to be automatically run for, if any.
Running grub-install automatically is recommended in most situations, to prevent
the installed GRUB core image from getting out of sync with GRUB modules or
If you’re unsure which drive is designated as boot drive by your BIOS, it is
often a good idea to install GRUB to all of them.
Note: it is possible to install GRUB to partition boot records as well, and some
appropriate partitions are offered here. However, this forces GRUB to use the
blocklist mechanism, which makes it less reliable, and therefore is not
- /dev/sda (500107 MB; WDC_WD5000AZLX-22JKKA0) 2. - /dev/sda1 (490655 MB; /)
(Enter the items you want to select, separated by spaces.)
GRUB install devices:
I thought that after a short period of time the installation process would continue automatically, alas it didn’t.
So I typed /dev/sda (following item GRUB install devices:) and hit the Enter button on my keyboard.
Synaptic then finished installing the packages.
The rebooting process took a little while to complete and subsequent reboot times seem longer than usual.
After Shutting down the system, the Start-up time is even longer (2 - 3 mins).
Be that as it may, once fired up Netrunner is running flawlessly!
I wonder if I selected & entered the wrong item and is affecting the Start-up or reboot time; If so, is it possible to rectify this situation?
