Updating grub on frugalwarr
There are several major updates in BOSS Linux 6.0 (Anoop) from 5.0 (Anokha).Notable changes include a kernel update from 3.10 to 3.16, a shift for system boot from init to systemd, the full support of GNOME-Shell as part of GNOME 3.14, an update to the GRUB version, Iceweasel being replaced by Firefox and Pidgin replacing Empathy, and several repository versions of available programs being updated as part of the release.It worked quite nicely, but it was very tied to the Gnome 2 way of doing things and not particularly suited to a conversion to Gnome 3.So now I have a simplified version which (after a bit of frustration) works quite nicely by simply displaying a random picture from my #!See the GNU General Public License for more details.You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program.The software has been endorsed by the Government of India for adoption and implementation on a national scale.It was developed at Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), Chennai.
In addition, you can change video resolutions, switch to a different locale (default is English), as well as to select another keyboard layout (default is English US).
Now the question is how does this config deal with the GRUB2 upgrade.
First, don’t miss the official upgrade howto, it covers most cases.
BOSS Linux 6.0 also shipped with various application and program updates, such as updates to Libre Office, Xorg, Evolution, GIMP, VLC, GTK, gcc, keyring manager, and Python.
Related specifically to the localization support, language support got even better with the replacement of Scim with Ibus with the Integrated System Settings.
