View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need help installing oneiric-proposed kernel

October 22nd, 2011, 03:09 AM
I am subscribed to bug 872711:
"Kernel does not report some USB printers correctly, making them not being detected by CUPS", and I received an E-mail from Launchpad:
> This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel for Oneiric in
> -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update
> this bug with the results.
It goes on to reference this page for instructions on how to install the proposed package:
I checked that my sources included oneiric-proposed, and proceeded to create a file /etc/apt/preferences as indicated (but with "natty" replaced with "oneiric"). Then I went to the next step:
sudo aptitude -t oneiric-proposed
I hit 'u' to update, but when I looked at "Upgradable Packages (1)", and hit enter, the only thing there was: net, main, and then google-chrome-beta. So I obviously did something wrong. I thought I was going to find this proposed kernel. Could someone help me out?
