SOLVED: New Kernel won't install

Postby kwisher » 16 Jun 2013 14:15

A few days ago linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 came down the pipe when I was doing my daily updates. The following error occurred and I thought it might get fixed with some future updates but it is still present.

Code: Select all

office kevin # apt-get dist-upgrade

Any ideas?
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

kwisher, are you tracking Debian Testing or SolydXK Testing (if you aren't sure post the output of inxi -r)?

And I believe the solution is to install plymouth from experimental. First, let's make sure your apt pinning is correct by posting the output of the following:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/preferences

Ok good. You're tracking Debian Testing and your preferences are correct. First run this:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/experimental.list
And add this line:

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main
Save the file and run:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
Finally, run:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -t experimental plymouth
