Here almost a year later and using LM 17.3 KDE since it was released I have been living with Grub listing my default as Rebecca 17.2 (first entry) even though selecting that puts me in Rosa 17.3. I used grub-customizer in Konsole to set my defaults, but they were never displayed properly. This morning I logged into LM 16 and ran 'sudo update-grub", rebooted and now the entries are displaying properly and in LM 17.3 I get the recommended kernel 3.19 instead of 3.16.0-38-Generic.blue_bullet wrote:Late to the dance again as usual. Hendrick, thanks for your post. I have a multiboot system with Petra (LM16 KDE) as the 1st choice in the grub menu. I also have LM17.1 KDE (now LM 17.2 KDE), and Windows 8. Today I upgraded from 17.1 to 17.2 quite smoothly I might add. I installed the recommended kernel for 17.2, rebooted, and did the sudo update-grub, rebooted. Nothing changed in the grub menu. I did boot to 17.2 but the menu said 17.1 and uname -a said I was still at the old kernel. I had to log in to LM16 and issue the sudo update-grub. Next I rebooted into 17.2 (appeared correctly in the grub menu now) and uname -a shows the new recommended kernel.Hendrick wrote:Joe,
I once had the same issue when running Mint13 and Mint17 on my pc. It took me not long to found out
that you cannot have two captains on one ship, so to speak. One of the distributions has to be in charge
for updating the Grub boot manager. Laurent85 is absolutely right concerning this matter.
Thanks for your tip. I now need to get rid of LM16 since I no longer use it. Can you tell me how you safely eliminated LM13 when running it with LM17? I want LM17.2 to be the captain.
Here's my questions. How can I remove LM 16 when that is where update-grub works? Am I stuck with LM 16 forever or is there a way to make update-grub work in the most current release of Linux Mint?
I guess the correct title of this post should be "Mint 17.3 Kernel Upgrade Issue" as the problem persists.
