Re: apt-get install tries to REMOVE my kernel
I think you'll get a new kernel in return
2005/12/12, astrid jurgensen <email@example.com>:
I recently tried to download and install software using apt-get install. The process was aborted because apt-get install tried to remove the kernel. See details below:
apt-get install –no-remove xcdroast

E: Packages need to be removed but Remove is disabled
As seen in the above, 2 files are to be REMOVED: initrd-tools and
The second one of these is the kernel I am currently using, and should therefore not be removed, and I guess that initrd-tools should also not be removed.
What is the cause of this problem?
(Note: It is not due to my kernel being a bit old. Others have posted questions about this problem already, and they were using more modern kernels. Unfortunately no solutions were posted.)
