Grub creates duplicate entries on an EndeavourOS install

When I first installed EndeavourOS I found there were duplicated entries in grub for EndeavourOS and windows 10 (I’m dualbooting)
I ignored it for the time being but I’ve decided to return to it now as it hasn’t resolved
I’ve reinstalled grub and stuff to no avail
Can’t seem to find a fix for this




can you provide version Grub

pacman -Qi Grub

$ pacman -Qi grub

As you are using grub-customizer was it this before starting to configure grub with it?

Yeah it had duplicated entries on my very first boot

could you show your partitions?
lsblk -o NAME,FSTYPE,LABEL | eos-sendlog
will show only devices format and label no uuids :wink: and creates a pastebin

https://clbin.com/y6yc3

that’s small :wink:

NAME   FSTYPE LABEL
sda           
├─sda2 vfat   
├─sda3        
├─sda4 ntfs   Windows
└─sda7 ext4   
sr0           

but looks also strange to me where is /dev/sda1 ?
and what is /dev/sda3 ?

sda3 is a microsoft reserved partition I obviously can’t delete, about sda1, I’m not sure.

I believe that the duplicates are in fact backups of older kernel versions, I edited the grub config to enable submenus and it looks tidier but my issue with it is that it doesn’t actually say if it’s an older version, it’s just linux-zen etc. like my current kernel

I think I’ll abandon this, it’s not a massive trouble to me since I can remove them from being visible at boot and afaik they’re just backups (Pity they don’t say that they are though / the kernel it’s a backup of)
Thanks for your help!

if the kernel packages are still installed it is normal that they show up on grub.
And I would keep LTS installed just in case zen does not boot …

Yeah, they must just be backup kernels, i don’t really want them though since I keep LTS as a backup anyways
