OK, so I'm using Mint 13 which has Grub 1.99.
I just updated the kernel, because this laptop I'm using has had some random hardware glitches, and I'm hoping that it was simply the older kernel version that comes with LM13.
But, just in case the newer kernel borked my system, I chmod -x'd the 10_linux file, installed the new kernel, then ran update-grub. Now, when Grub comes up, I have:
Linux Mint 13
Linux Mint 13 (recovery)
Linux Mint Maya (and then the new kernel version)
Linux Mint Maya (new kernel) (recovery)
Previous versions of Linux
(when you select the above, you get
Linux Mint Maya (previous kernel)
Linux Mint Maya (previous kernel) (recovery)
Now, the first two LM 13 entries are the new kernel, which is working fine so far. My questions are:
1) Is there any way to NOT have the second set of LM entries? I mean, my custom menu already gives me the newest kernel version, no need to have redundant entries for it. However, I do want to keep the entries for the previous kernels just in case.
2) How can I move the previous kernels so that they're all on the first/main menu (i.e. not have the "Previous versions of Linux" menu choice)?
