the new 3.x is not being affected since it is now being transfered into a virtual machine to prevent other operating systems from messing the installation up with burg or grub.

the 2.5 version will be re-released in a couple of days fixed. thank you! ^^

ps. you can also remove the entry by typing "sudo update-grub"

Additional note with JoeOS 1.5 it will not be fixed in the coming days (it will be fixed in a couple of weeks) however it will be postponed for now since this bug is already being fixed with 2.5 and 3.x

you can actually download the sh script below and run it and the problem will disappear plus it is also coming built in with jsetup.

you may see something about burg but it shouldn't really cuase too much fuss if you run it on a 2.5 installation.
