    Default Where is 2.6.30.5? (apt-get update doesnt find it)

    Hi there,

    /etc/issue shows that i am running: "BackTrack 4 Beta \n \l"
    uname -a shows the string: Linux bt 2.6.28.1 #2 SMP Wed Feb 4 21:50:02 EST 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

    I am trying to update my kernel to 2.6.30.5 however when I type: apt-get update i was getting an error about one of the keys being missing. I have added the key, and no longer get that error. For the record, I have the following keys:

    2004-09-12 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key
    2004-12-30 Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key
    2008-07-27 BackTrack Development Team
    2009-03-20 Launchpad PPA for KDE3.5 Maintainers
    2009-01-22 Launchpad PPA for Timothy Pearson

    Anyway, when I type: apt-get update it reads the package lists with no errors, then I type: apt-get install -d linux-image but it gives me the message that linux-image is already the newest version. I check using: uname -r and it shows that the kernel is still: 2.6.28.1

    It seems that apt-get update is not receiving the list with the location of the newer kernel, and therefore not downloading it into /var/cache/apt/archives/

    Could anyone shed some light. Can I manually (wget) download the linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb file(s) and then install them from thereon?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Seems Im having the same issue. However after the upgrade my Broadcom card is no longer found...i followed every step of the upgrade however it is not in /var/cache/apt/archives/

    I would be upset but at this point I am becoming a pro on USB installation with persistence...this will be my third time today.

    I had already tried the htp://ww.offensive-security.com/bl...kernel-update/ and it did't work for some reason. I should have stated that, Ill try it again sorry for the dp I thought I was quoting and didnt use the forum interface.

    Ok...tried it agin and heres what I got

    Default Same Problem

    For whatever reason apt-get install -d linux-image is not downloading the correct kernel for me as well.

    apt-get install -d linux-image
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    python-psyco medusa-menu backtrack-firefox-profile libssh2-1 libncp
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    The following extra packages will be installed:
    linux-image-2.6.27-15-generic linux-image-generic
    Suggested packages:
    fdutils linux-doc-2.6.27 linux-source-2.6.27
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    linux-image linux-image-2.6.27-15-generic linux-image-generic

    As you can see linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb is not downloaded.
    Deal?

    EDIT: If you google search the specific kernel you can find it and download it. I would post the link but I cant yet.
    Just download it and install it with the same instructions.

    Code:
    cd /var/cache/apt/archives 
    ls -la
    You should see the latest kernel version is probably not 2.6.30.5. Maybe it is. If isn't there, you can't expect bash to understand invalid syntax.

    At the empty prompt,
    Code:
    dpkg -i --force-all linux-image-2.6
    then hit tab, enter another letter, wash, rinse, repeat until you get the version you want.

    if you must use 30.5, try trac.offensive-security.com/repository/browser/backtrack/macroverse/l/linux/linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb?rev=1
