Thread: edit Grub?

  1. edit Grub?

    Debian Etch
    I installed a wrong of Debian-GNU/linux, now my system
    boots up and I see something like this:


    Debian-GNU/Linux, kernel 26.18-4-k7
    Debian-GNU/Linux, kernel 26.18-4-686
    Debian-GNU/Linux, kernel 26.18-4-686 single user
    Debian-GNU/Linux, kernel 26.18-4-server

    I only need the "Debian-GNU/Linux, kernel 26.18-4-686"
    part. I tried to edit Grub and remove the opther options.
    That works perfect, slight problem is however I cannot see
    how to make such a selection "saved".
    How do I restore it to only, or at least default
    "Debian-GNU/Linux, kernel 26.18-4-686"

    While editing /boot/grub/menu.lst make Default be the number of the item (kernel
    choice) the one you desire. Remember, zero is the first item and one the second,
    so forth. I'll show you part of mine, but you don't have to show me yours:

    default 0

    title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.18-4-686
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-686 root=/dev/sda3 ro vga=791
    initrd /initrd.img-2.6.18-4-686
    savedefault

    title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.18-4-686 (single-user mode)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-686 root=/dev/sda3 ro single vga=791
    initrd /initrd.img-2.6.18-4-686
    savedefault


    You'll want to maintain a single-user mode for a time if something
    does go very wrong - as when you goof and screw the system while
    being root.

    Maybe you are looking for the 'update-grub' command, but I would
    recommend not editing the kernel lists in grub.conf directly but instead
    uninstalling any kernels you do not require and let update-grub manage
    the kernel list.
