Thanks for getting back to me about it . . . . I haven't had the time to
mess with it just yet. I was thinking that that UUID number didn't match
anything in, what, "blkid" . . . ??? I couldn't find in my notes how to
see what my master grub in TW is using to identify the UUID numbers of each
of the 8 systems "/" filesystem to know where to boot it??
And, then I wasn't sure if I needed to fix that "resume from swap" issue,
or if that is correct and what should be resumed from??? I have had this
issue show up over the years, learned how to fix it, fixed it . . . but
then time passes and I forget the way to fix it . . . .
It's not the end of the world, it's just that kinetic is now stuck in 5.13
. . . instead of 5.19 . . . . The question is, whether the problem is
something in Lubuntu that "messed with itself" OR as "historically,"
something in "ubuntu" grub cut across into the master grub file data in TW
and created a problem for Lubuntu????
