Re: apt-get install tries to REMOVE my kernel



besides, I don't know if you copy-pasted the command you posted here, but the command

apt-get install –no-remove xcdroast

gives me a "E: Command line option 'n' [from -no-remove] is not known." because the right command should be

apt-get install --no-remove xcdroast   (with double minus-sign)

Running that command apt-get tells me only to install xcdroast, nothing else to install, remove or upgrade... (I use a 2.6 kernel, tough)

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.

Really?  Nothing in what Astrid posted seemed to indicate that to me.
The only "kernel-image" that appears is the one that's presumably
going to be removed.
