If I understand you correctly you already locked version in synaptic.If that is a case there is no need to do same thing from terminal.

I experienced that the lock version doesnt stick for long... And doesnt apply for terminal either.

PS Whats the deal with the firefox versions? I never had problems with .08 or .14. i think that those are only security upgrades.

I have had major freezes once i went to firefox 3.52 i had to end up doing a clean reinstall. But in the last few days I ended up getting linux kernel by mistake i was using the .11 no crashes when i boot up to the .11 no crashes if i don't watch the boot menu and go into .15 it freezes and even freezes the desktop not sure if that is called the x server or gtk???
BUT question
1 can i lock the .11 kernel
2 i get the upgrade alert every time i do an update can i use the .11 and keep it that way?
3 what kernel will Karmic use? So maybe i will wait or if there is a problem with my pc and .15 that can be fixed?
thanks this has been a nightmare and why i bought a whole new pc to get away from this stuff.
