Hi all!
In the last period that i've been using and updating Pardus 2007.3, i've noticed that after a kernel upgrade, that new entry was added in my menu.lst GRUB file.
 Let's say that i'm upgrading from 2.6.18.8.86 release 86 build 90 to the last build 99. So the kernel filename will be kernel-2.6.18.8.86 in both cases.
  And let's suppose that we're doing more than one upgrade per release , you'll get having a long GRUB select list. (i know ..... edit menu.lst)
   Just wanted to point it....
Bye!

I agree, it could definitly be cleaner by automatically erasing the old grub entries when there is more than two !

Just letting you know, this still happens today after a kernel upgrade.

It has nothing to do with the kernel it self, as this something from grub. Lets just wait for what Pardus 2008 will do.

It's a really nice feature that Pardus offers to its users. It's not a bug, really Smiley When you update your kernel, say different version, you have to update your grub entry to use the latest kernel. Pardus automates it, after updating kernel, new kernel entry is automatically added to grub.

Thats true, other modern Linux operating systems like PCLinuxOS, xbuntu's, Suse etc. does it too. You can trust them, what Eren.Turkay says - it can not be a bug.
