I now have only 2.6.8 and 2.6.16 kernels in my cache
file, while a short time ago I had from 2.4.18-bf2.4
to 2.6.16 and everything in between. Aptitude
a working installed 2.6.15 linux-image before I
blink and I would like to reinstall it but its not
there. I did do an autoclean but didn't think that
would remove all the linux-images and leave just the
2.6.8 and 2.6.16 in the cache. Would appreciate
telling me how to get all the kernel/linux-images
int my cache files so I can pick the one I want
instaled. Plz copy my email-not subscribed.
You dont say what version of debian you are running but I assume its sid
as this is the only one that has 2.6.16 at the moment. It would appear
you have installed some sort of meta package that will always depend on
the latest kernel so it has correctly upgraded you to 2.6.16.
The aptitude autoclean will have removed the old debs because they are
no longer available in the unstable repository, which I assume is all
you have in your sources.list.
Try adding the testing repositories into your sources list (copy your
existing lines for unstable/sid and change to testing/etch) then do
#aptitude search linux-image-2.6.15
#aptitude install linux-image-2.6.15-whatever-version-you-want
You may also consider removing the generic meta package that caused this
kernel upgrade in the first place. It will probably be called something
