April 23rd, 2009, 06:49 PM
Hi everyone,
i don't know if this is the right section for this question, but it came up when i installed Jaunty Jackalope.

So, after i upgraded i have 1 kernel server and 2 kernel generic.
My question is which kernel should i use??
In 8.10 i only had generic not server.
Which is better??

People often notice multiple kernels on their boot menu after doing an update - this is normal.

Usually using the one that is automatically highlighted on your boot menu will be the one to use. The others are there to give you a choice just in case some aspect of the update doesn't work for you as well as might be hoped.

i just take a look around and i saw that there are differences between a server-kernel and a generic-kernel.
And just to know my highlighted is server-kernel.
By the way this means Ubuntu-server???

Thanks a lot!!
