Question Installed Mint twice on triple boot Mac

I am using the rEFInd boot manager, with OS X, Win 7, and Linux Mint installed on my iMac.

I screwed up the video settings in Linux and couldn't figure out how to fix it so I re-installed Linux in the same partitions as before.

Now I have two Linux icons in my rEFInd boot menu, but the video in my original Linux install is now fixed.

How can I delete the 2nd Linux install?

That second linux install make not actually be present, the entry in the rEFIt configuration may just have doubled up on itself.

First of all, rEFIt is no longer developed and hasn't been touched in a year. It has been reborn as

You can see how to change configs in rEFInd in the project's documentation

That ought to get you going in the right direction!
