GRUB showing too many kernels...

Postby Scozzar on Wed Jan 23, 2013 8:28 pm

I updated my linux kernel from 3.2.0.33 to 3.2.0.36 but both kernels still show in the dual boot menu. I'll attach a pic for you guys what I mean. Also, everytime I go into Grub Customizer and quit it says I have to update. I hit update but the next time I quit (just open the program then quit) it still says it needs to update. I'm thinking about doing a clean install of Mint 13 anyway, or 14 if it's worth it. I did change the order to have Windows first which I know would probably make a difference. Before I do a clean installation I want to get this fixed first.

I'm not sure if I can trash the entries like GRUB customizer says I can....

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You can solve this by removing the old kernels using synaptic and then run this command in a terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub
MSI GE70-2PE*Quad core Intel Core i7-4710HQ*Kingston 16 GB RAM*Intel 4th Gen. Integr. GPU/NVidia GeForce GTX860M*Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200/Intel Wireless 3160*Sitecom X5-N600 Router (WLR-5100)

Thanks for the input guys, but I just deleted my linux partition for other reasons.
