/etc/grub/message.mint – file not found on Linux Mint

I just installed Linux mint KDE CE on my desktop computer. I love it! It’s great and looks brilliant with the advanced desktop effects that my laptop couldn’t produce last time. Well there was one thing that I remembered from last time. It’s really more of an annoyance than anything but when booting up you see a message that says

The solution was found by clem on the linux mint forum. Apparently

A grub on a separate /boot partition cannot access /etc. Known bug.

but because if it is changed it will not work if /boot is on the same partition there is no default fix for it right now. As mentioned in the post, the solution is “in menu.lst change /etc/grub/message.mint to /grub/message.mint”. Have fun!
