    Default Kernel 2.6.34 Update + USB + Grub Problems

    Notes: Im booting on an EEEPC 901 via USB

    After updating using
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    Everything was going fine until it got to the package linux-source 3.6.34.
    After that it errored and said that there was already a /lib/modules/3.6.34/kernal folder. so i moved the 3.6.34 to 3.6.34.old
    After that everything compiled fine.

    But my main question is that I had to
    Code:
    tar -xf /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.34 
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.34 /lib/modules/2.6.34/source
    because it hadn't created the soft link.
    (i assume this is what it needed to boot into the new kernel)

    But then i now notice that when it was installing that update-grub only updates to /boot/
    But of course it needs to update on /media/cdrom0/boot/
    (because it needs to update the usb)

    update-grub
    (results
    Code:
    Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
    Searching for default file ... found: /boot/grub/default
    Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ... found: /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Searching for splash image ... found: /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34
    Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30.9
    Found kernel: /boot/memtest86+.bin
    Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ... done

    If someone can help on this i would be grateful.
