Thanks for the reply . . . I do "know" which distro is handling grub . . .
the TW install, but they don't do the same "update-grub" command in SUSE,
as I recall from past exploits trying to get grub tidied up . . . . They
do a command like "grub2-mkconfig xxxxxxx" which I did run yesterday. They
do offer reinstall with "grub2-install" . . . .
I guess it wouldn't hurt to run that to see if it picks up the newer kernel
in Lu . . . now that 5.13 is gone there should be a more clear "choice" . .
