I'm not quite sure how to "fix" that. And I don't really want to have to
reboot yet to activate the newest .point upgrade so I can remove the
older one taking up disk space. I should've made my / partition twice as
large as I did, I reckon.)
the kernel meta-packages are called linux-image-2.6-<arch> and those
are the ones that pull in the most recent kernel. remove those
meta-packages to "fix" it (quite literally)...
Thank you. Fixed.
