A post of those notes (with an addition on whether they worked or not)
might be very interesting to a fellow Debian user of the elderly
This thread on grub2 is getting really scary. I'm afraid to make
changes in the grub2 configs because an error could easily brick my
machine. And futzing with /etc/default doesn't seem to impress grub2 a
whole lot. Not concerning what I want to do, anyway.
I think that what I'm wanting to do is completely remove some kernels
from grub2's consideration and go back to one that works for me --
that seems to be a tricky job.
The installer and the updater send magic incantations to grub2 that
successfully add/delete kernels to the boot process. Anybody have any
idea what those might be?
How about just removing all references to the ones I don't want from
/boot and running update-grub?
