Edit Grub2 default?

Post by lwrver » Sun Feb 12, 2012 5:58 pm

I have a kernel compatibility issue with an application after a recent LMDE upgrade to kernel version 3.0.0, which is now the new default. How can I edit Grub2 so that the previous version 2.6.39 is the default kernel at boot instead of the new v3.0.0? There used to be a grubedit program to do this, but I can't find it now.

Could it be startupmanager what you are looking for?

Startup Manager is probably what I am remembering, but it is not present in the LMDE edition. Don't know if it is compatible, but I'll look it up. Thanks for the clue.

UPDATE:
Found it from Package Manager, and it did exactly what I needed. Thanks again for the tip. :)

You might also wish to try Grub Customizer, about which there is a thread on this page of the forum.

I'll second that because StartupManager is deprecated - the author is no longer maintaining it. Look for the details in Launchpad - there is a Windows package on Sourceforge with the same name.

Grub Customizer is an Ubuntu PPA, but I've installed it in LMDE successfully - just point apt sources.list to the Oneiric version. It also resides in Launchpad but that has been down a lot lately. :evil: Grrrr ....
