How do I upgrade my stock kernel via aptitude?
I am running a 2.4.27 kernel that came with my sarge system, no
fancy custom stuff. I recently got a Debian Security update
telling me about these vulnerabilities in the 2.4 kernel, and so
naturally I'd like to upgrade to the 2.4.27-10 kernel.
I'm imagining that since I'm just using a stock kernel, this
should be as simple as "aptitude upgrade $KERNEL-PACKAGE".
Unfortunately, I can't quite seem to figure out what
$KERNEL-PACKAGE should be. "aptitude search $whatever" turns up
all sorts of kernel related results, and I don't see an obvious
one that makes sense. "aptitude upgrade" also doesn't seem to
upgrade my kernel.
I hate to ask the list what seems like such a basic question,
but I've spent quite a bit of time on this and am just getting
more confused. Seems like it should be easy, but maybe not...?
Thanks in advance,
