View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems After Upgrading To 10.04

March 31st, 2011, 07:50 AM
Greetings and salutations,

I just upgraded to 10.04, and (well, long story short,) I had several issues with getting Ubuntu to run once I rebooted. I am currently able to get into Linux, but I have to hit left-shift during the boot and select a previous kernel to run. If I don't do this, my screen goes blank and I'm not able to log in.

How do I tell Linux to run this kernel automatically so I don't have to do it manually? I hope all this makes sense - I've been at this several hours and now I'm brain dead.

Thanks for the help

Go to /etc/grub.d/ and make sure that the working kernel has the lowest number of all the kernels in there. For example, if your kernel is 50_linux, rename the file to 10_linux (just an example, but make sure it has the lowest number of all kernels).

Welcome to the forums :-)

The easiest way to achieve what you want is to use a GUI to serve the purpose. See here.


You will find the option for default entry under Preferences in that GUI.

Keep updating and you might get those errors fixed.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
