I'm quite new to Ubuntu; I read the following on this page:
"The latest kernel version any user is supposed to use in Ubuntu is updated automatically via the Update Manager, so no action is normally required by user regarding kernel upgrades."
By "updated automatically" and "no action is required" does this mean that the kernel installs itself in the background without me knowing (sounds more like something that Windows would do, not Linux) or is it supposed to appear in the Update Manager, then I click on "Install now" to install it?
Currently my Update manager tells me there's a new kernel to be installed, "Complete generic Linux kernel and headers" and "Ubuntu base" totaling 66MB. If that's normal then I shall install them. Thanks.
