    Re: Terminal Commands for snappy??

    Oh thanks for the clarification. I'll just see what happens later. We're not even to the alpha stage yet.

    Re: Terminal Commands for snappy??

    I tried to add the ppa and it got errors. It added a ppa with wiley-dev in it and the ppa is apparently named devel.

    I tried to modify the name in SPM but bungled that also so I purged it.

    Re: Terminal Code lines for snappy??

    Never mind. I installed it and tried sudo snappy update and it gave me errors and nothing else so I purged that and libclutter-gst-1.0-0 which it also installed.

    Re: Terminal Code lines for snappy??

    Is snappy new to Wiley and it seems to be a replacement for apt-get right? (dumb question :P)

    I just installed it and there is no man page for it.

    Oh ok. I know it sounds really dumb but I'm going to give that a whirl and see if the next kernel install allows me to keep 2 kernels.

    So....... installing upstart-sysv on flavors that do not come with anything but systemd is a most excellent solution IMO.

    I believe it was in Trusty, but I'm not absolutely sure. It's happened twice that I remember. I had to restart them.

    The difference between the two do not point in any way to the symptom but I'm still going to see what happens the next time a kernel comes through in updates.

    Re: Wily Desktop, How do I set to work on Desktop Version Only?

    I understand your point - the differences between clean and autoclean do not in any way point to the symptoms I have. But this never happened on Trusty before.

    I never touch anything with the kernels. I just install them in updates. But, there was something that I changed a while back that perhaps could be causing this.

    Could you post the contents of this file with this in terminal cat /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal ?
    I'd like to compare what you have to what I have. It should be about 85 lines long.
