Try putting the "#2 pour 40_custom première entrée." on a separate line, above or below, the GRUB_DEFAULT=4 line.

Or maybe this will help.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer

Than I did:

sudo apt-get update

Next step is

sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

After that I open the grub-customizer through unity dash and select the desired kernel from there and tada!:)

# has the effect of stopping the interpretation and is reserved for comments, it was not a problem before.

Grub customizer is a good idea. I have used it in the past. But I really would like to get the explanation.

Yet I am not suffocating, though claustrophobia symptoms have begun. :bad:

Thanks for the suggestion Ed.

I understand the concept and use it myself but maybe there is a bug in your system and it's tripping over it for some reason. It takes a sec to move it and see if it helps.

40_custom has to be made executable. :shock:
