<!-- Process this file with docbook-to-man to generate an nroff manual
page: `docbook-to-man manpage.sgml > manpage.1'. You may view
the manual page with: `docbook-to-man manpage.sgml | nroff -man |
less'. A typical entry in a Makefile or Makefile.am is:
manpage.1: manpage.sgml
docbook-to-man $< > $@
The docbook-to-man binary is found in the docbook-to-man package.
Please remember that if you create the nroff version in one of the
debian/rules file targets (such as build), you will need to include
docbook-to-man in your Build-Depends control field.

<title>DESCRIPTION</title>
<para><command>&dhpackage;</command> is a small GUI program which displays
your grub entries in a menu and lets you quickly change the default
without having to go to the command line.</para>
<para>Additionally <command>&dhpackage;</command> works also under the
certain other operating system which resembles an opening in the wall.
Other OSes have not been tested, but Unix-like ones are expected to work.</para>
<para>This version only works for the new grub (1.98 or newer).</para>

<title>PERMISSIONS</title>
<para>Setting the grub default requires root permissions.
<command>&dhpackage;</command> uses <command>sudo</command> to call
<command>grub-set-default</command>. This call is non-interactive; as a
result a NOPASSWD sudo configuration is required.
</para>
</refsect1>
<refsect1>
<title>SESSION SUPPORT</title>
<para><command>&dhpackage;</command> allows a script to be run to immediate
end the current session. Since ending the session is dependent on the desktop
environment, the user has to install the appropriate script as
<filename>$XDG_CONFIG_DIR/grub-set-default/reboot</filename>. Examples scripts
can be found in the reboot directory of the source distribution.
