Package: kernel
Severity: wishlist

There are a few pacakges designed to keep you up to date with the latest
kernel version - ie:


It would be good if these packages could conflict with the kernel
version one before last so that old kernels are removed by dselect.

My reasoning for one before last is so that you can still boot Linux
and LinuxOLD through LILO.

The basic idea is good, but I agree there's no simple practical way this
could be implemented.
