Changing GRUB Default Boot Kernel in Ubuntu 10.4

Problem

You want to always boot a certain kernel in Ubuntu. There is no /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Solution

  1. Edit this file: /etc/default/grub/ and add:
GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
  1. Run this utility: sudo update-grub

Now next time you reboot, choose your favorite kernel. This decision will be remembered.
