Re: Reminder of 12.04.2 release 01-31-2013
Thanks for the response. I had, of course, already run sudo grub-install /dev/sda to revert control to my main 12.10 installation.
I had to do that as the 12.04.2 grub menu was virtually un-useable.
But I ran 'update-grub' after, not before the 'grub-install' - was that a mistake?
Are you suggesting that it is possible to install Grub 2 v2.00 in 12.04.2 with the 3.5 kernal?, instead of v1.99-2; which, i understand, is actually Grub2 as well, but without the Additional Options sub-menus.
I needed to do a clean install to clear out some problem; normal updates did not offer, or carry out the 3.5 kernal upgrade.
There is discussion in this thread, and elsewhere, pointing out that /etc/lsb-release had been pre- updated in preparation for the release of 12.04.2.
Two days before release my fully updated 12.04.1 still showed 188.8.131.52-generic-pae from 'uname -r', but 'cat /etc/lsb-release' already showed Precise 12.04.2 LTS, exactly as in your Post.
Try: 'uname -ar'. May-be a 'dist-upgrade' would do it.
Edit: Currently, I get:
:~$ uname -ar
Linux alan-MS-7616 3.5.0-23-generic #35~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 25 17:15:33 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS"
