G'Day; Please forgive me but I'm still doing battle with the new kernel issue.
I'm not sure if it's relevant to the problem I'm having, i.e. will not boot into new kernel, I tried to sudo update-grub but found it still had the entry for the 3.4.0rc4 kernel, even though I'd purged it, I had a look in /boot and found files labeled linuz-3.4.0 rc4, take ownership worked, tried to delete, no good, then cd /boot, ok, sudo apt-get purge ... "no such file or directory". Is there a way I can remove these files from /boot ???
