Well buddy, I'm rarely online and this machine sits at home, so why
would I care about root? In my readings root has been emphasized as a
security issue. I don't have a security issue. Root has worked for
many months and I have edited grub many times in the past and it has
always been there for me. Therefore, what would lead me to suspect
that root has anything to do with /etc/grub?
Is there anyone knowledgeable enough to offer a solution out there?
