Hi there, please next time use one of the support subforums, thanks in advance.

Also regarding your issue, some more actual details would be appreciated. What bootloader do you use for each distro, what is your partition layout, what does the bootloader config look like currently ...

Code: Select all
insmod part_gpt
   insmod ext2
   set root='hd7,gpt1'
   if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
     search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd7,gpt1 --hint-efi=hd7,gpt1 --hint-baremetal=ahci7,gpt1  0bcea173-e61a-4efd-9b6c-9f7d21ecf09b
   else
     search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 0bcea173-e61a-4efd-9b6c-9f7d21ecf09b
   fi
   linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdh1
   initrd /boot/initrd-5.1.14-desktop-1.mga7.img


I get this from grub config.
I only need one bootloader, if its works, or not its not easy to install if i use many disk.

Well, without some more context information from you it's pretty hard to tell what is located where ...
From the other output seems sdh completely contains Mageia. Where is Kubuntu installed, on sdc / sdc2 ?

I found a solution, boot mageia 7.1 use recovery mode, reinstall bootloader or some like that.
So now its works, why did not mageia did not have firefox 70.1?
I thinks is poor support of this forum.

We are using the ESR branch, see https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Archive:_Mag ... il_clients

Also, what do you mean in particular about poor support?

i find out its not available:

How did you find out it's not available?

Firefox is contained in the default repos and it is installed by default on most desktop environments.
Check https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Software_man ... nd_updates and maybe https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Installing_a ... g_software

I think that the OP misunderstands the process.

"There is no repo for Firefox": If there was a separate repo for each program, the list would be enormous. He should have searched through rpmdrake before complaining.
"Poor support forum" : The forum is for support, not for adding repos. Requests for additional packages can be done in Bugzilla.
"Adding Ubuntu disables Mageia": It is Ubuntu that has done this, not Mageia. I have at times had to reinstall everything after a major change, but Ubuntu uses Grub2, and I have never known it not to pick up everything. Its menu looks different, and Ubuntu may become the default choice, but Mageia is still in the list. As the OP discovered,, the problem was with Grub, not Mageia, and is perfectly normal. Installing another distro makes no change to Mageia's entry for Grub, which is usually still available to select in the BIOS, but every other distro on the OP's machine needs to be updated, That is a weakness of having a bootloader's config files within one distro. rEFInd is totally external, and overcomes this issue, but I do not find it easy to adapt to such a fundamental change.

I thought that my reply might be a bit more informative, maybe not. My only gripe with Mageia is entirely different; that despite the constant stream of updates, the news on the Web page suggests that the distro is dead. There will no doubt be a reason for this. I am a retired lawyer, and the most constant complaint against lawyers in general is "He may be handling my case, but he never tells me what he is doing." Plainly the issue is not the law, but communication, and is of general application. By mentioning it here, OT, I intended to keep its publicity low.

Feel free to contribute to that, the atelier team is probably thankful for each helping hand:

yes, this happens,
it occurred for me with a recent kernel update for a Ubuntu derivative in a dual boot system.
choosing Mageia from the grub menu ended up with a scrolling screen of text, and then stopped with no gui login greeter.

I was able to re-install Mageis bootloader from a tty command line.

the issue is definitely a bug with Ubuntu and the way they implement the grub bootloader.
