I recently upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and since have had some problems with the linux-generic-2.6.32-19-generic kernel. Whenever I install anything through terminal it gives me this error at the end:


dpkg: error processing linux-image-2.6.32-19-generic (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-image-generic:

not sure if this is a big problem but it is a little bit annoying. I tried reinstalling the package again, but it seemed to screw it up even more. Now I can't really install anything; it just says:


Error! Your kernel headers for kernel 2.6.31-19-generic cannot be found at /lib/modules/2.6.31-generic/build or /lib/modules/2.6.31-19-generic/source.

not really sure what to do or what any of this means

10.04 is still in beta testing, so please post your beta-related questions to the proper beta testing forum: Development & Programming, Lucid Lynx Testing. thanks
