    I don't see a problem, but as I recall the OS makes the fstab and (sorta) not the fstab makes the OS.

    Code:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f
    This has nothing to do with fstab.

    Re: Aptitude wants to update 29 Kernel Parts? 3 gig of updates?

    I commented out the cddrom line.

    ran aptitude install -f again, terminal said much the same,

    need to d/l 1 gig of updates, after install 3 gig (more) used. I went for it. An hour later, the updated kernels are all there.

    Now, how do I remove them? Three gig is still 3 gig.

    I found this article particularly effective, as the author guides me through it, one step at a time.

    Remove Old Kernels In Ubuntu With One Command

    After another hour or 90 minutes of watching aptitude do it's magic, the old kernels were gone and I had recovered valuable space in /sda3.

    A portion of the run is pastebin'd here:

    http://pastebin.com/bmAKW3C5

    aptitude would check everything very thoroughly, remove one kernel, clear dependencies hurdles (if any) and then with each removal would generate a new grub.cfg. I thought the process would crash before it did all this, but, this IS Linux and not another name-brand OS. So aptitude worked flawlessly.

    I'm writing up another post about this mess with the subject line:

    Apt-Get versus Aptitude Kernels Installed and Uninstalled

    one old kernel didn't uninstall and in true heroic form, aptitude explained it in terms I dont' know, but I know the people here do. And I'm finally going to get the GRUB Recover mode screen back.

    Thank you all, very much. And especially you, Mr. Torvalds.

    Great that you got things solved, etc, but as I said a million posts ago, why are you using this command? Use the one suggested by CharlesA.
