Re: apt-get upgrade and linux-image



Feel free to ignore this. I just found out why I had this problem:

bugs:~# apt-cache policy linux-image-2.6.12-1-sparc64
linux-image-2.6.12-1-sparc64:
  Installed: 2.6.12-6
  Candidate: 2.6.12-10
  Version Table:
     2.6.12-10 0
        800 http://ftp.de.debian.org testing/main Packages
         50 http://ftp.de.debian.org unstable/main Packages
 *** 2.6.12-6 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Now, shouldn the packages name be linux-image-2.6-12-n where n is 6 in the 
version I have installed and 10 in the new version to be upgraded?

By the way, shouldn't apt be holding back the linux-image packages?
