Chrubuntu is stock Ubuntu with a different install vector. Everything but installing it is on topic. That's the current policy boiled to the bone... But on closer inspection (and with help from the related question) you can see that it's not a stock kernel that's being used. For Arm Chromebooks, it has been necessary to use custom kernels to support the ...

I will give a reason why I voted to close first: In that particular question, to me, doesn't seems to be a problem within the bounds that Ubuntu will have the same behavior and more like the changes made to Ubuntu for Chrubuntu are causing problems.

Yes, since people actually use that tag it makes it easy for us to find topics about mint >:-D We also have a fedora tag used 63 times. And windows-7, windows-8, windows-xp even windows-phone.

However, questions about the Crouton boot process itself are off-topic! Clear and simple... :-) ¹Technically, it's not a boot loader: it's a chroot, but 90% of users who see this answer won't ...

Askubuntu is more for officially supported versions, such as unity ubuntu, lubuntu, xubuntu, gnome ubuntu, kubuntu , and edubuntu. Crouton isn't officially supported , hence off-topic. Same with Linux Mint - even if under the hood it's all one big debian family, it's still different distribution

Perhaps this should be a feature-request. My best guess is that the question is locked open once a bounty has been offered and removed from the offerers rep. In a perfect world this would be fine. I added the feature-request tag to the question in the hope that this might be addressed in some fashion. (Even if the response is Not Going To Happen) Edit: ...
