    linux-headers-generic - VITAL?

    What would happen if I remove (accidentally)
    Code:
    linux-headers-2.6.35.23
    and
    Code:
    linux-headers-2.6.35.23-generic
    and
    Code:
    linux-headers-generic
    from my system?

    Shouldn't be a problem since they are only used to build modules or programmes which rely on the kernel headers.

    Read this: What Are Kernel Headers

    You don't need them for Ubuntu to work, but you might need them for compiling kernel modules.
