grub + hardy : last updates of kernel are not in the list of grub since Kernel 25 (20th october 09)

Asked by achevrier on 2009-12-07

Hello Ubuntu users.

I'm using HARDY HERON on a ladtop DELL VOSTRO 1510.

Until kernel num 25, grub listed automaticaly new kernel versions that was installed time after time.

But, since kernel 25, the new kernel are not listed in grub list, when I open the laptop.

Here is the historic of updates found in Historic of Synapsis :
Les paquets suivants ont été installés :
linux-generic (2.6.24.25.27) to 2.6.24.26.28
linux-headers-generic (2.6.24.25.27) to 2.6.24.26.28
linux-image-generic (2.6.24.25.27) to 2.6.24.26.28
linux-restricted-modules-common (2.6.24.18-25.2) to 2.6.24.18-26.3
linux-restricted-modules-generic (2.6.24.25.27) to 2.6.24.26.28

Les paquets suivants ont été installés :
libdns36 (1:9.4.2.dfsg.P2-2ubuntu0.4)
linux-headers-2.6.24-26 (2.6.24-26.64)
linux-headers-2.6.24-26-generic (2.6.24-26.64)
linux-image-2.6.24-26-generic (2.6.24-26.64)
linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-26-generic (2.6.24.18-26.3)
linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-26-generic (2.6.24-26.43)

Here is version that is currently returned and used :
a@p:~$ uname -a
Linux p 2.6.24-25-generic #1 SMP Tue Oct 20 07:31:10 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
a@p

It is very strange

Any idea to have last updates listed ?

Remember : I'm using HARDY HERON

Problem solved.

In fact, the version number 26 was not taken in account in the menu.lst of Grub, because I've had to modify menu.lst previously because of dysfonctionnements describes in ticket number #90549 (see https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+question/90549 ) .

So, after having try to reinstall version number 26 or desinstalled previous version (number 19), a windows appeared in synaptic, suggested me to better chose menu.lst from the author of application, instead of my current and customized menu.lst. I've followed this advice.

Then, after having up-dated grub in command line, everything is now OK.

Thanks a lot for you help and be pleased if that could help someone else.
