Bug#355188: apt-get install linux-image-2.6-x fails - chicken & egg with udev upgrade
I recently decided to try Etch on my laptop computer (IBM Thinkpad
A22e). The dist-upgrade from Sarge worked reasonably well and I
generally like the new system. However there is one problem I've
encountered that I need some help on.
I'd like to upgrade my kernel from 2.6.9 to the latest as the Etch
version of udev doesn't work with the older kernel. I've had to go back
to the Sarge version of udev to get a working udev. However, I can't
upgrade my kernel because the Etch kernel doesn't work with the old
version of udev. Moreover, the Etch version of udev won't even install
unless it sees at least a 2.6.12 kernel.
dpkg --install also doesn't work because of the dependency issue.
Is there a way around this problem?
