View Full Version : [ubuntu] ubuntu servers and the update ...
May 5th, 2010, 06:19 PM
Hi folks ...
I would like to know how to update the current ubuntu server 10.04 kernel ver. to the new one. I just gave the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
A lot of things were updated except the kernel. Any clue. Thanks in advance.

you shouldn't try to upgrade with apt-get, use update-manager-core
Since you are already half-upgraded, that might not work; in that case
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade might get you through,
or you may need to manually install the kernel you want/need
# get a list
apt-cache search linux-image
#pick one and install it: (example)
sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.24-18-generic
note that this is NOT the recommended upgrade procedure.
Also, it may be useful to run apt-get upgrade or dist-upgrade again after you installed the new kernel, in case the newer kernel version makes some packages upgradeable again.
