    Multiple Ubunutu's On Startup


    So i was alerted that there were 136 updates available for teh programs on my ubuntu, so i installed them all, and when i rebooted my comp, there were 2 Ubuntu listings as opposed to 1, as well as my xp listing.

    I think the two ubuntus are different, as i had teh interent working before i installed updates, but it no longer works.

    What do i do to fix the problem?

    The listing is as follows:

    Ubuntu
    Ubuntu (recovery mode)
    memtest

    Ubuntu
    Ubuntu (recovery mode)
    memtest

    If your kernel was updated, you probably have a listing for the old kernel and one for the newer kernel.

    You could use Synaptic to delete the older kernel image. That should remove the old kernel menu entry for you.

    Sometimes it's a good idea to have the older working kernel on board just in case something goes wrong with the newer one. Just a thought...
