Re: How to purge linux-image-2.6.14

Recently i've talked with someone else that cannot purge the 2.6.14 kernel, due to bug #344767. It's a known problem, already solved for 2.6.15, but for people that still use 2.6.14 or have used it, the problem of purging it completely still exist. For example on my machine, the various kernel images i've installed in the past, are now uninstalled but marked as "c" and if i try to purge them, the lock described in the bug report arise. Then i have to press CTRL+C to exit.

As suggested in the bug report, i've tryed to look at the postrm scripts in "/var/lib/dpkg/info/" but i cannot understand them adequately (i don't know perl).

You need to edit "/var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-2.6.14-2-k7.postrm". Comment out line 268, which reads: "$ret = stop ();". Then purge the package.



PS - why do packages without any config files get into the config-files state in the first place? :)
