I have two linux images so far 4.19.0-2-amd64 and 4.19.0-kali3-amd64. It starts with Debian as default but I want some packages from Kali. To group Kali packages, Debian separate in the Application Launcher(KDE) I need that kali-menu application.

After installing kali-menu, katoolin I saw there are some sort of other packages from Kali linux, sources.list changed, mirrors added & other changes:

$ dpkg -l | grep linux-image | awk '{print $2}'

older kernels & linux-image-headers cleaned-up using:

apt remove --purge linux-image-<image_name>



Actually, it cause no harm or not slowing down the boot process. But, is it possible to set a default kernel without removing the extra one?
