Re: [Bug 1450905] Re: Why is my laptop not booting up after a major 112M update yesterday?


Yes Ralph, you are correct as I got confirmation from Conniccal  today
that it is not a grub problem and that in fact it is the
kernel that is not compatible with grub 2 beta~ which they bounced on us

As I said I just deleted all 3.16 kernels off my system using MC
(Midnight Commander ) in the Terminal and my prob was solved. I just
used an earlier kernel which was still in the grub menu and updated the
grub menu and my laptop boots up fine at an alarming screaming speed.
