grub 2, how to manualy remove system configured entries.

All my question is explained in the title.
Just to clear it, i mean by system configured that i wand to be able to remove an entry for an old kernel for example but not to remove the old kernel itself throuh synaptic or the like.
Hope you understand my question, i am appreciate any answer to it.

BTW i am sending this question throuh the android app, but it seems to append the Solved to my qustion without asking me first.

Thanks in advanced.

I don't know if I understand your question but it seems you are asking if you can remove an entry from the Grub menu??

The link below explains it but it refers to Grub 1.98 and Ubuntu 9.10. You didn't indicate what distro/release you have?

I expect you would need to modify files in /etc/grub.d. Reading the link above should give useful info or at least point you in the right direction.

This isn't the answer i am looking for.

In this article there is an explanation on how to remove he old kernel entry automaticly by removing the old kernel from the computer through synaptic.
I am want to remove just the entry for the kernel and not the old kernel itself.

If you remove the unwanted grub2 entries the next time grub has an "update-grub" it will replace those kernel entries if the kernel is still with the system. Now there is a way to kill os-prober that might do it but then grub2 would not automatically update when needed.

Here is a grub tutorial I refer to grub2

Take notice under the heading Configuring grub2 heading and multiple os users it will explain how to hide unwanted entries.
