After downloading the 'fix' for Meltdown/Spectre into my Debian 7 install, I rebooted and found I had double entries. Two standard boot, and two "recovery" boot options. The top one hangs when I try to boot it, the second one works. Is this intentional? Is the fix so risky that it is optional? Or has something gone wrong with my setup?
Also, does anyone know what happened to Debian Forums? (https://forums.debian.net/) I cannot get it to load, and this is where I would usually ask for help on technical Linux questions.
