cd /

sudo tar xvjf ubuntu910xen2552.tar.bz2 
sudo rm ubuntu910xen2552.tar.bz2

Make xenomai group

sudo addgroup xenomai
sudo usermod -aG xenomai robot

Downgrade from GRUB2 to GRUB

sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.old
sudo cp -R /etc/grub.d /etc/grub.d.old
sudo cp -R /boot/grub /boot/grub.old
sudo aptitude purge grub2 grub-pc

# System is unbootable until the next 3 commands succeed!!!
sudo aptitude install grub
sudo update-grub

# Select 'y' to generate new menu.lst
# Use your primary harddrive as the argument (probably "/dev/sda")
sudo grub-install /dev/sda

# Open the Grub menu file for editing
 gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

# Find the block of text that says "2.6.31.4-ipipe" (not "recovery mode"). Do NOT copy directly from this web site- your hard drive's UUID will be unique. 
# It looks similar to:

	title           Ubuntu 9.10, kernel 2.6.31.4-ipipe
	uuid            bbd03826-5ecd-4999-9a89-03846de55c0b
	kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31.4-ipipe root=UUID=bbd03826-5ecd-4999-9a89-03846de55c0b ro quiet splash 				
	initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31.4-ipipe
		
# Paste a copy of that block just above the line that reads "### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST"

# Modify title of the copy to something distinct. 
# Also, add the kernel option "xeno_nucleus.xenomai_gid=1001". 
# The modified block should look similar to:

	title           BARRETT DEFAULT: Ubuntu 9.10, kernel 2.6.31.4-ipipe
	uuid            bbd03826-5ecd-4999-9a89-03846de55c0b
	kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31.4-ipipe root=UUID=bbd03826-5ecd-4999-9a89-03846de55c0b ro quiet splash xeno_nucleus.xenomai_gid=1001
	initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31.4-ipipe
	
# Save and close the updated menu file

# Reboot the system
sudo shutdown -r now
