Re: quick upgrade help needed-kernel image not wanted
couldn't you just remove the kernel package?
aphro:/home/aphro# dpkg -l | grep kernel
ii device3dfx 2.3-6 Device driver for 3Dfx boards for 2.x
ii pciutils 2.1.2-2 Linux PCI Utilities (for 2..x
ii pump 0.7.3-2 Simple DHCP/BOOTP client for 2.2.x
aphro:/home/aphro# dpkg -S /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.15
dpkg: /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.15 not found.
i run my own kernels too but they usually have unique names for the most
aphro:/home/aphro# ls /boot
System.map-2.2.15 mbr.b vmlinuz-2.2.16+usb-UP
boot.0800 os2_d.b vmlinuz-2.2.16+usb-UP+es1370
boot.b vmlinuz-2.2.14-2000071201 vmlinuz-2.2.17
chain.b vmlinuz-2.2.15 vmlinuz-2.2.17pre18+usb
config-2.2.15 vmlinuz-2.2.16+usb vmlinuz-2.2.17pre18+usb+more
apt-get has never(thankfully) touched my kernel(s). i run home brew
kernels on every machine i build and its been the same accross all of
them. dont remember doing anythign special to get apt-get to ignore it.
and no i dont do it the 'debian way' as i could never figure out how
that shit works so all the kernels are from ftp.kernel.org.
