    Re: Kernel version's don't match after upgrade....

    Hmm... well, I'm at the library now, where I *should* be able to get online... however, its not auto-connecting on boot up... and I don't know how to do so from the command line... if somebody can walk me through it, that'd be great. I know theres a proxy server I have to go through too, which I'd forgotten about...

    When you get to a command line, try:

    sudo ifdown eth0
    sudo ifup eth0

    Hopefully that will get you online. However, didn't you say you were using a dialup modem? If so, it might not work. I'll have to research how you might get online from a dial-up from the command line. It can't be fun.

    EDIT: Actually...

    sudo pppconfig

    ...might do the trick. Look at this...

    Re: Kernel version's don't match after upgrade....

    Hmm... well neither pon nor wvdial seem capable of dialing either of the modems i have (one used to work in 7.10, but doesn't in 8.04, the other is a serial modem with usb-serial adapter that didn't work in 7.10, but did in 8.04...)... so i don't know. could i download the updates from this computer and then move them over somehow? Otherwise... what are my choices from here... could i re-upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04??

    Try re-upgrading to Hardy with a CD.

    Boot into your 7.10 kernel. Insert a 8.04 CD, and follow the directions here...

    *happy dance*

    Ok, so I finally figured out my modem situation - turns out I was using the wrong stinking port (ttyS0 vs ttyUSB0)!! So, once I got that figured out pon worked beautifully! And so, 3.5 hours later, after running both thomasaaron and chamelaondave's codes, I'm back in buisiness!! TONS of thanks to both of you!!

    :happy dance:

Please check that /usr/src/linux points to the right tree. The cause of this is usually a missing or unconfigured kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).

    However, proper /boot/config-2.6.24-19-generic was found."

    And then it obviously doesn't get past this... please help!!
    Yes, i agree with you .
