I have upgraded my Dell LS400 laptop from 7.10 to 8.04. Upgrade completed successfully.
However, there is no Grub entry for the new kernel and the system boots into the 7.10 kernel (188.8.131.52-generic).
When I type into terminal:
I get Ubuntu 8.04, Hardy.
When I type:
I get 184.108.40.206-generic
However,when I type:
"Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic
Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic
Found kernel: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ...done"
So apparently, the new kernel has been found, yet Grub fails to update.
Can anyone help me edit grub manually, or any other way for grub to "see" the 8.04 kernel and boot into it?
By the way, System Monitor shows Ubuntu 8.04 and everything has been upgraded (OpenOffice, Firefox, etc) and works with the 7.10 kernel (??). With a few problems (microphone does not work, fonts in system Monitor, Terminal, etc are virtually unreadable, etc).
