    Question Re: can't update

    Resolved the Boxee key issue with:
    Code:
    $ wget -q "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x07124991f766fa20" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    $ $ sudo apt-key list
    /etc/apt/trusted.gpg
    --------------------
    ...
    pub   1024D/4E7532C8 2011-01-11 [expires: 2012-01-11]
    uid                  Opera Software Archive Automatic Signing Key 2011 <packager@opera.com>

    So both the Opera & Boxee key are there but so far on each reboot I get the GPG error after apt-get update.

    The kernel updates continue to be held back.

    Because there is another kernel update out now, and it may -again- be that you don't have enough space to install the new one. Try it like the other time.

    I can't help you regarding the Opera key issue.

    Talking Re: can't update

    I could've forced apt-get to stop holding back packages but instead I used the Settings app to perform an update and everything eventually worked. I know had both 35-24 and 35-25.

    Using autoremove got rid of the old headers, but kept the generic "image":
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.35-24-generic linux-headers-2.6.35-24-generic linux-headers-2.6.35-24
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package linux-headers-2.6.35-24 is not installed, so not removed
    Package linux-headers-2.6.35-24-generic is not installed, so not removed
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
      linux-image-2.6.35-24-generic
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    After this operation, 139MB disk space will be freed.
    Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

    The link /vmlinuz.old is a damaged link

     you may need to re-run your boot loader[grub]

    Updating seems alright; the only issue left to resolve is the ATI video, but that's a different story altogether.

    Thank you Krytarik.

    Re: can't update

    Do you know why the kernel packages have been kept back? Since there was obviously enough free disk space to install the new kernel, without removing 35-24 before. Also, since you removed 35-22 in post #8, there was only one kernel left, 35-24, thus definetely enough free disk space to install another kernel.

    Regarding your ATI driver issue: Do you want to start another thread on this topic? I'd be glad to help you with those as well.

    No idea..

    I was just looking at the bug reports.. Settings / Xinerama does not save dual monitor setup and reverts to clone on reboot and not all the resolutions are available. There's a few other problems. I would've preferred to use the opensource drivers for my ATI card, but that doesn't really seem to work. I'll be filing a bug report.

    Re: can't update

    OF TOPIC:

    If you want to use open source drivers for your ATI cards, I recommend the Open Source Edge drivers, the should deliver a considerably better performance than the default ones:
    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...e_Edge_Drivers
    https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    You will need to create a proper "xorg.conf" to get your your dual monitor setup work properly, I know this guide "Nvidia" titled, just leave the "TwinView" option, and it may be necessary to set the value of "Xinerama" to "true" or "on" instead:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php....2FDual_screen

    If you need further help on this, please start an own thread on this topic.
