    [grub] doesn't show the kernels in his menu


    Hi everyone,

    I'm usiing PM8 (boot magic) to dual-boot XP and FC 3. When I choose to use FC 3 (that's most of the time), PM brings me to grub. Everthing works but my problem is that grub shows me only one choice, the original kernel. But I've installed more recents kernels since my first use ! And I checked, there are in /boot.

    when I look at my grub.conf file (in /etc/grub.conf and /boot/grub/grub.conf, which are basically the same, if I understand well), all the versions are there. You can see in addtion that the first kernel (2.6.9-1.667) is written as a comment. Well, it shouldn't show up at all. But it does and he's the only one. So grub has to look anywhere else to get the kernel list. My question : what other file(s) should I modify in order to use the latest kernel I've downloaded ?

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks a lot !!

    Code:
    default=0
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd1,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    #hiddenmenu
    title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.770_FC3)
            root (hd1,1)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.770_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
            initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-1.770_FC3.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.766_FC3)
            root (hd1,1)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.766_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
            initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-1.766_FC3.img

    you only have to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf to get things up on the grub menu, try the file as below:
    default=0
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd1,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

    title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.770_FC3)
    root (hd1,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.770_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-1.770_FC3.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.766_FC3)
    root (hd1,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.766_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-1.766_FC3.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.760_FC3)
    root (hd1,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.760_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-1.760_FC3.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.681_FC3)
    root (hd1,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.678_FC3)
    root (hd1,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.678_FC3.img
    title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
    root (hd1,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    And see how it goes
