Re: apt-get install tries to REMOVE my kernel
True. but I'm sure that
A. Apt-get's dependency-checking is designed to check upward
dependencies as well (i.e. when I remove Gimp , X.org will not be
removed, although Gimp depends on X.org).
B. there's no program at all that even can think of removing a kernel without replacing it or something like that.
Maybe I'm wrong but I think the program Astrid's installing needs a newer kernel than the current...
I think the best thing is to save a copy of the kernelimage (can be
found in the /boot directory, if not sure; backup the whole /boot
directory) before installing.
