View Full Version : [ubuntu] Booting with grub to 2.6.27

November 2nd, 2008, 10:28 AM
I have updated from Hary 64 bit to Intrepid 64 bit. As I had edited menu.lst in grub (I have a triple boot system: Windows, Ubuntu and Fedora) I took the default answers to questions about changing menu.lst (ie leave as before), it still boots 2.6.24. During the install I noticed that a new kernel (2.6.27) had been downloaded.

How do I now edit menu.lst to boot the new kernel version?

You could add:

title Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic
root (hdX,Y)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=77677cb5-6e56-4936-a373-80c15de06bca ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-7-generic
That should work if you don't have a /boot partition. And of course replace (hdX,Y) with your Ubuntu partition. :)
