After removing old and unused kernels from my wife's laptop as per this question: What kernels & packages do I un-install?
I thought I'd do the same on my laptop, since I've been running Ubuntu for years and upgrading to every version (.04 and .10) as I go... Surely I must have a pretty big list of kernels floating around by now.
aptitude search ~ilinux-image though, I have just one kernel (in addition to its associated "extra" package), and it's quite an old kernel too (well, in comparison to the wife's computer, at least).
More concerning however, is the fact that
linux-image-generic appears to be missing - it's not even listed at all, like on the wife's laptop!
Should I be worried that this package is missing? Is it just
sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic to re-install it?
