[ncolug] Re: Ubuntu 10.10 question

These virtual packages only exist as a mechanism to ensure that you get
the latest kernel/headers packages.  You're going to be removing the old
packages and then reinstalling will all be done in a few minutes.

I try to run the latest/greatest kernel version, just seems to be
easier...  the latest is 2.6.38...  (At least that's the latest Debian
packaged version... Ubuntu *might* be running older kernels, but I'd
still want something newer than 2.6.22.)


So as root run:
        apt-get purge linux headers-generic linux-image-generic
        apt-get update
        apt-get install linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic

This should get you the latest and greatest kernel and headers.
