    Re: Possible menu.lst problem after kernel update

    OK, I rebooted, got no menue, but that's supposed to be normal, logged in ok, and after typing uname -r, uname -v, it seems I'm running kernel,

    3.2.0.32 #51.

    Which should be the latest kernel, so it seems everything went ok, touch wood.

    The Upgrade page says to make the change perminent in the MBR I need to do,

    sudo upgrade-from-grub-legacy

    Is this still the case?

    Thanks to everyone for your help, nuch appreciated.

    Yes, I think it's still necessary.

    If you first purged grub1 and then installed grub2 this step wouldn't have been needed. I hope it won't leave sort of hybrid grub1/grub2 setup.

    The upgrade-from-grub-legacy should take care for that not to happen and clean up any files of grub1, including menu.lst.

    Thanks Darkod for your help, I'll run the system like this for a while and see how a few kernel updates go before making the final upgrade.

    Touch wood everything continues to work well.
