    2.6.31-19 upgrade and poulsbo drivers

    I recently accepted an upgrade to the 2.6.31-19 kernel.

    I am using an Asus 1101ha, and attempted to do "New Method" described in the following:

    However, with a 2.6.31-19 kernel,

    # dpkg-reconfigure psb-kernel-source

    results in a build error. As stated in the link, the package is unstable with 2.6.31-17+. Since I have used 2.6.31-17
    alongside with psb-kernel-source, I attempted a kernel-downgrade to 2.6.31-17 [removed linux-image-2.6.31-19-generic]

    However, it appears that psb-kernel-source is dependent on the package linux-generic; which is 2.6.31-19 and it refuses to perform a reinstallation of the poulsbo drivers; it comes with the following error message:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    psb-modules: Depends: linux-generic but it is not going to be installed

    In effect, I only have neanderthal graphics performance - and any help would be appreciated.

    apparently it turned out that running a

    # dpkg-reconfigure psb-kernel-source
    after reinstalling the poulsbo drivers under 2.6.31-17 fixed the issue; so now my graphics apparently works smoothly again, having downgraded to 2.6.31-17.
