I want to freeze my kernel version. I followed some instructions on a blog to hold the " linux-image-generic " package - however in my case I see a " linux-image-generic-lts-xenial ".
dpkg --list | grep linux-image
For me shows:
ii linux-image-3.19.0-61-generic 3.19.0-61.69~14.04.1 amd64 Linux kernel image for version 3.19.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-4.4.0-38-generic 4.4.0-38.57~14.04.1 amd64 Linux kernel image for version 4.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-extra-3.19.0-61-generic 3.19.0-61.69~14.04.1 amd64 Linux kernel extra modules for version 3.19.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-extra-4.4.0-38-generic 4.4.0-38.57~14.04.1 amd64 Linux kernel extra modules for version 4.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP hi linux-image-generic-lts-xenial 220.127.116.11.28 amd64 Generic Linux kernel image
I typed in the command:
sudo apt-mark hold linux-image-generic-lts-xenial linux-image-generic
Is this enough to freeze the kernel?
Rant: I am tired of Nvidia and my Wifi drivers breaking everything the kernel updates. Supposedly this version of the kernel needed MOK to "disable validation" to work, but even with validation - cuda seems to work fine. I just dont want to spend another work-day fixing my computer every time it bloody updates. Its frustrating.
