that new kernel, and then re-run the dist upgrade is how I see it.


Is there an easy way to download .deb files without having to find them on the Web? apt-get won't do it because there are broken dependencies and I can't find any force options in the man page. I tried connecting to the ftp site listed in my sources.list, but all I found there were *lists* of packages, not the packages themselves.

As a result, I am having to search for the files, download them to another computer and transfer them. However, I expect that upgrading the kernel is going to require me to download more packages to solve more dependency problems and I would like to know a shortcut.

Also, the package on debian.org has the suspicious name:
is it i386 or k7?  Is this normal?

Thanks for everyone's help.
