Googling this question hasn't brought me to anything so I decided to ask here. Recently I noticed on that kernel 3.7 finally considered to be a stable so I decided to upgrade, since I am on 3.7 RC7 but when I opened

I noticed new file (actually 2 which seems to be identical) linux-headers-3.7.1-030701-omap_3.7.1-030701.201212171620_armhf.deb and


so my question is should I install those as well or continue installing only 4 files (e.g. 3 AMD64 image and headers + all headers)?

Thank you.

No, those files are for ARM processors not x86 or x86-64 processors. You can see that from the armhf at the end and the omap following the kernel version.
