I have compiled my own kernel and I ended up with 6 packages:

  1. linux-doc_3.2.0-030200.201201042035_all.deb
  2. linux-headers-3.2.0-030200_3.2.0-030200.201201042035_all.deb
  3. linux-headers-3.2.0-030200-i7_3.2.0-030200.201201042035_i386.deb
  4. linux-image-3.2.0-030200-i7_3.2.0-030200.201201042035_i386.deb
  5. linux-source-3.2.0_3.2.0-030200.201201042035_all.deb
  6. linux-tools-common_3.2.0-030200.201201042035_all.deb

I know I have to install packages 2,3,4 but am wondering what the other 3 are for and if I also need to install them or can I just delete them because they aren't needed.
