View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading from 10.04LTS to 12.04LTS in an XBMC Live install

April 28th, 2012, 02:51 AM
the sudo do-release-upgrade -d more or less went without a hitch. Except I reboot and now I see this:

xbmc@XBMCLive:/etc/grub.d$ uname -a
Linux XBMCLive 2.6.32-29-generic #58-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 11 19:00:09 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Eeek! I try to do an upgrade:

xbmc@XBMCLive:/etc/grub.d$ uname -a
Linux XBMCLive 2.6.32-29-generic #58-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 11 19:00:09 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
xbmc@XBMCLive:/etc/grub.d$ sudo apt-get upgrade

double eek! Ok, so how can I make this machine use the proper kernel? It looks like the newest kernel did not even download:
