    Question Where can I download meta-packages for kernel upgrade?

    Hi, guys

    I look in so many threads that the search in the ubuntu forums and in Google gave me as links. I don't seem to be able to find this so called meta-packages.

    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
    Here I found all kernel-images. I'm particulary interested in 2.6.27-11-generic. I downloaded the deb-package, but as I've read in Synaptic Package Manager, it's not recommended to do that and instead I should use these so called meta-packages that I so eagerly want to find but they seem to dislike me and hide from me For those of you who'll probably ask me why I want to upgrade the kernel (or update - do not really know which word is better to use here ) - WiFi issues (for these I need to download another package too) plus display flickerin which as I read here might get fixed after this upgrade... So I hope I'm not bothering you, guys, but I really would appretiate if anyone can give me at least some directions (if not a direct link) for finding this meta-package for 2.6.27-11 generic.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Which version of Ubuntu are you running?

    I think the 2.6.27-x kernel is only available for 8.10.

    Re: Where can I download meta-packages for kernel upgrade?

    I am not sure about that either. As far as I know you can be with an older version of Ubuntu (or whatever Linux distribution your using) but with a newer version of the kernel. At least I read so somewhere here.
    Which kernel (later than mine) will you advise me to install? Since I have these problems but I want to remain with the LTS-version (I've always used LTS).


    Thank you for your time. I really appreciate that.

    The latest generic kernel for the version you are running is listed in synaptic as "linux-image", assuming you have the normal repositories enabled.
    GRUB2

    Retired.

    So I cannot use a newer kernel (without changing my Ubuntu version)?
