Now, what about kernel updates by the debian

And when a kernel exploit is discovered, the
security team upgrade the woody 2.4.18-1 kernel,
not the one shipped with the kveton installer :-)

A bit of stop gap fix but this is what I use on a lot of my servers.


cd /;tar -xvjf linux-2.4.26-thingy.tar.bz2
edit /etc/lilo.conf


So does it means that if I want to use Debian on
my PE Servers, I'll need to maintain my own .deb
kernel packages, and compile new ones each time
an exploit is discovered ?

Or find a bloke who has already made some.

I don't make sense, I don't pretend to either. Questions?
