Preplogic.com - I like it. Makes me feel smart.

About five months ago, I decided to for my CCNA. And I decided to use Preplogic.com to train for it. Preplogic has a fantastic program for networking wannabes (and networking already bes).

#howmany for grub 2

Posted 12-05-2009 at 08:46 PM by drask
Updated 12-05-2009 at 10:39 PM by drask

I don't really like the default behavior of Grub in Ubuntu to continue to add all the kernel updates to my grub boot menu. I never go back and use old kernels (except by mistake) and it just crowds up my boot menu.

In the past, I have used the #howmany option in /boot/grub/menu.lst to limit this to only the most recent kernel. Now that I am using Karmic Koala though, this option no longer appears to be available due to the fact that the default bootloader is now Grub 2.
