As for the right way to connect to Squeeze-backports, you were entirely
right. As soon as I called the proper apt-get install command, the
install of kernel 3.2.0 did start and proceeded successfully to the end.
Well, it wasn't bootable right away. Indeed, when upgrading from Lenny
to Squeeze, I had choosen to remain with GRUB 1, and, on my
/boot/grub/menu.lst, the lines related to the newly installed 3.2.0
kernel did not have anything about 'initrd'. I had to manually add the
expected line, and then, after that, the new kernel did boot all right.
If I were to upgrade kernels, which kernel would you recommend ?
I'd go for the 3.x branch.
Is this kernel likely to have taken into account the bug that concerns
my PCI wireless card ?
Can't confirm on this, this is "test & try".
So far, everything seems to work all right with this new kernel... but I
haven't tested everything yet...
HOWEVER, as far as my TP-LINK pci wireless card is concerned, THIS IS
EXACTLY THE SAME THING AS BEFORE ! Connexion is quick and strong, but
it only lasts anytime from 30 seconds to one and a half minute, after
what the system freezes and the only way to get out is to disconnect
mains power !
I can see that newer 3.2.x kernels are available to compile and install
from scatch. But how shall I know which one - if any - has taken into
account and corrected the bug that concerns wireless connexions with my
TP-LINK pci card ?
As for the Squeeze distro with newer kernels that one can boot from a
CD, where - at what url - should I download the iso image to burn ?
