View Full Version : [kubuntu] kernel version problems with updates

June 24th, 2010, 05:51 AM
I installed kernel 2.6.34-020634-generic in Kubuntu 10.04 to get SSD TRIM support. I used the kernel team PPA to install. (See http://usablesoftware.wordpress.com/2010/05/26/switch-to-a-newer-kernel-in-ubuntu-10-04/)

But whenever I check automatic updates, it asks me to install kernel 2.6.32-23. How can I stop this and tell it I do not want to install an older kernel? Thanks.

so remove the meta package

It took a bit of experimenting to find which package I had to remove first. I ended up having to do it in 3 stages. Finally got it correct. It would be nice to see a step by step guide on how to do this.
