    How to edit GRUB menu list (Ubuntu 9.10)

    How do i edit the GRUB list. The current shows old Kernel also, and the list goes long. I am using Win XP for dual boot.
    Till 9.04 I used to edit it by:
    sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

    If I try this, the menu.lst shows blank file.

    Pl. suggest

    Just uninstall the old kernel packages and they will be automatically removed from the grub menu (plus you'll also gain some disk space).

    The easiest way is to use the Computer Janitor (in System/Adminsitration menu). Althiugh it will always leave you with one older kernel version because many people like to have one around.

    ..or just search for "linux-image" in Synaptic, mark the old versions for uninstallation and click "Apply".
