Yeah, I use it a fair bit, although I do have admin rights. Don't think they should be necessary after install though.
Cheers. Maybe I'll test it out on a home machine before trying to get someone in IT who doesn't know anything about it to set it up.
I'm not sure how to ask my question (which is why I've struggled to solve it), but I think I am asking how to edit the boot sequence to load a previous kernel due to an issue with my current one.
Laptop won't boot directly to the OS/fails, so it tells me to hit enter to go into grub(?), where it presents a list of kernels(?) - ie
If I select …0-52 or …0-52 recovery it fails.
If I select …0-51 it loads.
What do I do to revert back to 0-51 / or boot directly to it ?
When I had this issue I deleted the newer kernel and it seemed to fall back to the previous kernel and that worked fine.
I probably followed something along these lines https://askubuntu.com/questions/343066/how-to-delete-a-non-working-kernel-after-update but I'm no expert so you may want to wait for someone else who doesn't just do stuff by trial and error to weigh in.
You should be able to remove the defunct entries with GRUB Customizer. I've used it to change the default boot order and it works well
Will give those a try.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
