    Question with 3.3rc7 kernel

    Just wondering why I am getting this message when trying to install the
    3.3rc7 kernel from the kernel main. 64 bit
    Been getting it for about a week now. Have never had any issues with the kernel main before

    there is a new nux package actually built, maybe it will help, but 3.3 is not a Precise kernel anyway.

    I just wanted to give it a try, I know that the 3.3rc7 is not an 'official' kernal but it is listed as:http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...3-rc7-precise/

    You also need the header packages, breaking linux-image, only means that the kernel will not be updated automagically, when a new version comes out.

    Not sure if this is what you mean, but when I install kernels I always do the
    headers-all
    headers-64amd
    image-64amd
    that order.
    And the failure is when I am trying to install the image, as the headers 'appear' to install, correctly.

    If you are not compiling anything like kernel modules, headers are not necessary.

    That's true for some distro's, but the headers are dependencies of linux-image, and it won't install without them.

    I *know* that a lot of ppl prefer to install kernels in this-or-that order.

    Personally, I simply download the 3 .debs to a folder, open a terminal window, cd to the folder, and let dpkg choose the order, e.g.

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    Just for giggles, you might want to try that...

    Sorry but this is NOT TRUE. I have no headers installed but don't tell me I have no linux-image.
