Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

Had the problem that the new kernel image 2.6.32-25-generic is not shown in the grub menu on bootup. So i hoped reinstall grub-pc will fix but did not. Also genating a conf with update-grub did not work but update-grub found the 25 kernlel and it is in /boot/grub/grub.cfg but it is not written to my disk or so cause i cant choose it in the grub boot menu. Also after installing the 25 kernel my sound modules are not loaded anymore and alsa does not recognise my card but thats another storry.

I set this security vun cause i dont know if i can boot up another time so it could crash the system.

Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.
