I just upgraded an Ubuntu 10.04 (Server Edition) to '2.6.32-36'. However, after doing that upgrade the server would not longer start and GRUB tells me that it is unable to read the header.
I rebooted the machine, held down shift while starting up and GRUB then shows a list of old kernels . I chose the one i upgraded from, and the system starts up and works as before.
Now, I'd like to get rid of the newest kernel and just stick to the old one. So, I figured that I can run 'apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.32-36-server', and then reconfigure GRUB. However, when I run that command, Linux gives me the following:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: linux-image-2.6.32-36-server linux-image-server linux-server 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 3 to remove and 0 not upgraded. After this operation, 128MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n Abort.
Should I really let Linux remove 'linux-image-server' and 'linux-server'? Will that break my system? Right now I'm running with '2.6.32-33-server'.
