Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub

The update manager rebooted the machine before ending the update process. After reboot it reported that the update process was interrupted and instructed me to run dpkg by hand, witch I did.

But dpkg insisted that the grub menu.lst was not found and only proceeded to finish when I allowed it to generate a new menu.lst.

The machine now works, but the new kernel does not appear in the Grub menu when it boots.

UPDATE: Since the new kernel didn't show up in the grub boot menu I tried to do update-grub by hand. It was worse.

update-grub insists in maintaining a menu.lst and seems to ignore whatever is in the /etc/grub.d directory. Now, my grub boot menu only has two kernels and the other OSses that are in the disk (Windows & Ubuntu 9.10 32bit) were ignored.

Maybe the new update-grub is not from the grub2...?

Found the problem: somehow grub2 was uninstalled and old grub was installed. I can't say for sure when that happened. I don't recall doing it, neither having any reason to do it. :-(

Does reinstalling grub-pc remove any other packages?
