    Upgrade kernel to 2.6.27-9-generic

    Hello all,

    I have been playing with Ubuntu 8.04 and now upgraded to 8.10. But I saw that my kernel is still at 2.6.24-16-generic. I have done sudo apt-get update and upgrade all the time but the kernel has not updated. I have done a number of searches on google on how to upgrade the kernel with no luck.

    Does anyone know how I can upgrade my kernel on my laptop? Thank you for your help and time.....

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply. I have tried that before but I just tried it again and 0 upgrades and 0 newly installed. So no luck with that command.

    Thanks......

    give more info,

    like, uname -a

    Goto Settings>Software Sources>Updates, make sure important and recommended are checked. if they are, take a screenshot and put it up here.

    Copy paste your sources.list here..

    The more the info, the faster help arrives

    I am also experiencing this issue. Is it solved? I'd like to bump/reopen this thread and ask WizMedic if he solved his issue, as he stopped following up on this issue. I have also posted a thread about this, and it can be found here. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...79#post6640479 I am still experiencing this issue and it is severly impairing my comp's functionality. Help GREATLY appreciated.
