I recently updated a lot of packages in my Ubuntu 11.10 system, including some nvidia drivers and some Xorg code along with some changes in some core Ubuntu packages. It seemed to go OK but oddly my Grub Menu changed so that the top two entries included the words "Linux Mint Fluxbox".
Now I had some contamination with some Linux Mint repositories earlier as described here:
But my sources.list is clean and contains no pointers to a mint repository. Moreover I have never installed a fluxbox version of linux let alone a linux Mint version.
How could this have happened? Is the grub menu updated by some different mechanism?
