    Question How to disable the Grub Update


    Hi Friends

    After Every time Grub-boot loader gets updated i will see a new line - {Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-36-generic} in the boot loader screen. i already have a dozen of these lines {Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-28-generic}. I do not want to have this to be updated every-time i give for updates, Because every time i enter the new grub loader, ubuntu logo screen gets messed-up, or the screen gets stuck-up, login screen doesn't appear, sound card makes white noise etc.. How to disable this updates. Other updates are fine.

    Thanks

    Those would be newer kernel versions getting installed.
    AFAIK, the only way to avoid that would be to not update the kernel.
    While running Ubuntu, I found it easiest to remove older kernel versions, but only after making sure nothing broke on the last update.
    You can do that through Synaptic.
    Go to the following link for some details. Scroll down the the section labeled Removing Kernels via Synaptic.

    Hi
    thanks for the tip

    I have made the current kernel version 2.6.32.36.42 (package-Lock Version) & i could see the read line marked on it.
    does this mean it will NOT get updated.

    Thanks !
