I am currently running Ubuntu and Fedora on the same system. I am using the instance of grub which came with ubuntu to select which one to use when I boot. I need to add rdblacklist=nouveau to the command line for Fedora or else it will not load my nvidia driver. The issue I am having is that if I want to run an update-grub in Ubuntu it will erase whatever I have added to the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file, which makes sense since it is reconfiguring that file. I know I can change my Ubuntu boot command by editing /etc/default/grub but how can I add parameters for fedora to this file?

  • My personal recommendation is just to handle grub.cfg manually, maybe using Ubuntu's output as a starting point if you need to. But that may be more trouble than you want. – Tom Hunt Sep 25 '15 at 15:51
  • No that's fine. Just seemed like the proper way was to use update-grub – chasep255 Sep 25 '15 at 16:02
