You're right.  I don't know what happened.  Sorry about that.

Hi perknh, how's it going?  Can you not mix the # code and Sp Spoiler functions.  It produces a letterbox style window that is almost impossible to read the contents.  Long outputs only need to be encapsulated with the Sp function.  I've altered them for you.  Many thanks  ;).

Andy .. I specifically asked him to use the CODE and SPOILER tags

CODE tags to preserve formatting (sometimes tabs are truncated when not in a code box)
SPOILER to minimise forum space

I'm even more baffled now  :-\

That suggests 3.17.1 is set as the first kernel to boot.

Are you sure you're REBOOTING and not just logging off/on ?

is
Peppermint GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.17.1-031701-generic
being offered as an option at the GRUB menu ?

Is Peppermint the OS that automatically boots if you turn on the PC and do nothing at the GRUB screen .. or is Ubuntu the OS that automatically boots ?

Yes, I'm rebooting and not logging off.  But today I put Peppermint on my internal hard drive, because Peppermint 5 has four more years of support; and I put Utopic Unicorn on my external hard drive because it only has five more months of support. 

It is this external hard drive that reboots by default, but I just scroll down a few lines to boot into Peppermint.  I'll remove the external hard drive and see what happens now after a reboot.

Update:

Yes, that is the solution!  Bingo!!

Here's the output from uname -a:

That's what you wanted to see!   :)

Thank you, PCNetSpec (and AndyInMokum).  That was not easy detective work.

My Peppermint 5 is now running off of a new 14.10 kernel.  Woohoo!  :)

Thank you very much. 

perknh

P.S.

Here's something interesting.  The kernel reverts back to 3.13 when I plug the external hard drive back in.  I'll reinstall Utopic Unicorn again, and see what happens.

Boot into Ubuntu and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grubthat should pick up the new Peppermint kernel when booting from the external HDD

Thank you, PCNetSpec. 

Oops!  I didn't know that trick.  I just finished re-installing Utopic Unicorn to my external drive, and I got rid of all other Peppermint kernels except the 3.17 kernel.  It sounds as if in time this 3.17 kernel will become a backup kernel anyway.

Thank you for all of the help.  I'm very happy to have this newer kernel.

Nope .. you'll PERMANENTLY now have 3.17.1

Ubuntu 14.04 (and therefore Peppermint 5) will always have a 3.13 series kernel, so 3.17.1 will ALWAYS be the newest kernel on your system.

You'll still receive updates to the 3.13 kernel, but they'll never get promoted to the default kernel as they'll never be the one with the highest version number.

Hello PCNetSpec,

Put this will still give me a backup kernel eventually, right?  Even though I'll always have, at least in theory, a better default kernel now than what came with the original Peppermint 5 installation.

And with the the latest Trusty Tahr upgrade to 14.04.2, won't this 3.13 kernel get bumped up a smidgen?  In my case I no longer have any 3.13 kernel on my computer, but I figure it will be re-installed eventually back into my Peppermint installation.

I figure I'll get there eventually because I do run this particular command occasionally:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Thank you,

perknh

P.S.

By the way, this new kernel is working like a charm.  I'm very happy with it.  :)

Nope, the kernel for 14.04 will always stay at the 3.13.0-nn series, they may apply patches to it to fix known issues bumping up the "nn" in the version number, but it won't jump up above 3.13.0 via system updates.

So as your current kernel is 3.17.1 it will ALWAYS have the highest version number .. so will always stay as the default kernel

The 3.13.0 kernels will continue to update in the background when the release a version with a higher nn .. so you'll alwsays have the latest proper kernel for 14.04 as a fallback ;)

Did that make sense ?

Yes, that makes sense. 

This sounds like a winning combination to me.   :)
