I assume that the kernel 2.6.28-11 and 2.6.28-14 entries are redundant, but how do I remove them? They appeared after Ubuntu updated itself.
You need to edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst
Look for an entry like this:
## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
## alternative kernel options
## e.g. howmany=all
Remove the #
from the last line and replace the number 7
with the number of entries you would like to see.
to see only one entry etc.
You need to be root
in order to edit the file. Before editing the file, make a backup
To edit the file, start a terminal and type:
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
input your root
password, the file will then open and you can begin editing.
