Default Boot loader after upgrade

Hi,

I upgraded my fedora 12 to 13 and then F13 to F14. I used the instructions for the desktop version in these two pages:

http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-upgrade-from-fedora-12-to-fedora-13-desktop-and-server

http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-upgrade-from-fedora-13-to-fedora-14-desktop-and-server

Which are basically the same for both upgrades.

Now in the boot loader I have 3 choices: F14, F13 and Other which is windoze.
I can boot from both F13 and F14, they work properly. F13 desktop is the same know as F14 but when I check the version in terminal (uname -a), I get F13.

I'm not sure what I did wrong. Is there anyway to keep only F14 and get rid of F13?

Thank you

I don't want to start a holy war, but suggesting that a newcomer use vi
without making sure they know how to use it can be a formula for
disaster; it's not exactly new-user friendly. Adam, if you're not
familiar with vi, consider using nano, as it's got all of the most
common commands right at the bottom of the screen for you. (Hint: ^G is
a very, very old computer shortcut for Ctrl-G.) That's not to say you
shouldn't use vi if that's what you like, just that nano is easier to
use if you've never seen either of them in use before.

someone not being familiar with setting up grub.conf, does not mean they

shortcut?

how about "another way to represent", aka, "synonym", like using;

"control + g", or, ^g, or, ctrl-g, or, <ctrl+g>.

also note, i am using lower case, 'g', where as upper case, 'G', might
imply to some that "shift key", <shft> key needs to be pressed.

Maybe not, but IMO, it's best not to assume too much knowledge. If it
were me, I'd simply suggest that the OP use their favorite non-GUI text
editor and leave it at that unless they ask for suggestions.

As I've mentioned other times, I also infest fedoraforum.org. I've seen
posters go the extra mile by posting step-by-step instructions how to
use vi to make an edit, just to be sure. Of course, that's on a
website, where people can simply ignore the parts that don't interest
them. Here on a mailing list, it's a tad less convenient, and I
wouldn't expect it. (Hell, I didn't really expect it there, either.)

Default Boot loader after upgrade

Hi,

The thread is very old. The problem I posted was that I had Three choices
instead of just 2 during startup. After upgrading from fedora 13 to 14 I found
that I have fedora 14 and Fedora 13, in addition to other (i have a win
partition). A week ago i did a yum update, and i found an additional entry in
the boat loader again. So now i'm doing finally the follow up. Here is the
content of my /etc/grub.conf:
---

When you upgraded from F13 to F14 the upgrade left a F13 kernel.
(Think of it as a precaution.)

Here is a simple way to remove that extra kernel without editing
skills or usage of a gui:

1. Boot F14.

2. If in Gnome or KDE or other desktop open a terminal.

3. Do "yum list kernel* "

4. Remove undesired installed kernel via "sudo yum remove kernel_____ "

Yum/rpm will take care of/remove the grub entry.

I forgot to mention that there was nothing wrong with your upgrade
from F13 to F14. Do "man uname" and you will understand.

Default Boot loader after upgrade

Here is the result of the first command:
----
# yum list kernel
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Available Packages
kernel.i686
2.6.35.13-91.fc14 updates
----

So in that case I have just one kernel?!!

No! You left out the trailing asterisk; i.e. kernel*
