Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Question

Let me get this straight.

You installed Ubuntu to a second hard disk, but wrote the MBR (Master
Boot Record) to the first. So when you boot from your first hard disk,
it starts GRUB and gives you a choice of OSes.

Then you "formatted" your first disk, so lost the MBR for it, and now
you don't know how to boot Ubuntu?

I don't think you have a "crashed" disk here. Boot up an Ubuntu Live CD
and you should be able to access the disk from there. You can then look
for the file /home/you/.gnome2/rhythmbox/rhythmdb.xml. Inside, search
for "iradio" to find the XML entries for the radio stations you had. The
URL for each station will be listed under the "location" element.

(It's also completely trivial to reinstall an MBR, so don't go
reinstalling Ubuntu unless you really want a fresh installation.)

Good luck!
