I'm a newbie on linux red hat 7.3. I'm using grub as my boot loader. I'm also tri booting with win 98 and xp, When I boot up I'm showing two previous kernals I would like to remove from my boot screen,any sugestions are welcome, I've been into my grub conf. file but I don't know what to do from there, Thanks
grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-17.7.x)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-17.7.x ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-10)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-10 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-3)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
This is my grub conf. file, Thanks.
I'm also a newie in RedHat, but recently I had problems with the newest kernel "vmlinuz-2.4.18-17.7.x". Mostly related to the GUI. For example, when pushing the scrollbars, you don't see that the button is pressed and you have to press it several times in order to scroll the document. The buttons in the start menu have also a similar behavior and the Alarm Daemon doesn't tigger the tasks that you create. I don't know if it's just me, but I switch again to my old kernel "vmlinuz-2.4.18-3" and everything works fine.
Originally posted by acid_kewpie can you please ask seperate questions in a seperate thread in future, your question has no relation to the original one.
Actually I think it does! He just was asking what kernel he should take and I just suggest not to take the new one. I think one have to take care about bugs (if there are) when choosing kernels. And about your answer, I didn't know that a kernel couldn't affect the interface. Anyway I just create another thread:
