I upgraded the kernel to 3.5.0-36-generic by running the following from the LTSEnablementStack guide:
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-quantal xserver-xorg-lts-quantal libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-quantal
and ran sudo apt-get upgrade afterwards for good measure. Now I'm seeing the following issues:
First of all,
sudo apt-get update outputs:
The following packages have been kept back: linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic
these are listed under Update Manager as updates for 3.2 with Description such as:
Installed version: 126.96.36.199.39 Available version: 188.8.131.52.59
in addition to 3x Recommended updates corresponding to the three packages above:
- Header files related to Linux kernel version 3.2.0
- Linux kernel headers for version 3.2.0 on 64bit x86 SMP
- Linux kernel image for version 3.2.0 on 64bit x86 SMP
The question is, why am I being recommended 3.2 kernel upgrades when I'm clearly already on the new kernel (
uname -r and grub screen confirm)? How do I get rid of them? Is there any harm in actually going through with the updates?
Can I safely assume that because grub is using the new kernel, it should be ok to accept all sorts of updates to past kernels?
