Is there something particular you want from a new kernel?

Otherwise I would just follow the normal Upgrades in the Update Manager.

I just do an upgrade using update manager.

I still get Linux ver 2.6.24.

drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 2009-07-23 20:57 linux-headers-2.6.24-24
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 2009-07-23 20:57 linux-headers-2.6.24-24-generic

Why don't I get the latest Linux version : 2.6.29 instead??

(Sorry for this question since I am new to Linux)

Thanks,

NNinh
