If you have dual boot on your pc and want to change boot order in grub.

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst 

or if you have Ubuntu 11.04

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

To change the default boot option, you just need to change the GRUB_DEFAULT parameter. 0 Then save and write:

sudo update-grub

If you want to delete other versions

  • Go to Synaptic package manager
    • Search for the versions that you don't want to have (e.g. 2.6.2
    • Select the ones that are already installed, right click and Mark for Removal. -> Mark
    • Linux headers, generic and image.
    • But be sure not to delete the version that you want to have on your computer.
  • Click on apply
