kernel upgrade to 188.8.131.52 (apt-get dist-upgrade doesn't do anything)
first of all I'm not the super LINUX-crack (so it may be a stupid little mistake) but I searched the forums and didn't find an apropiate solution.
So today I just made myself a Backtrack 4 pre-final persistent USB-stick. Everything working fine. I used the package manager to update all packages (apt-get update && apt-get upgrade didn't update some packages) so everything was upt o date. But the Kernel wasn't so I searched and found the news and the commands here.
But when I ran
apt-get install -d linux-image
it downloaded Kernel version 184.108.40.206... so I though well no problem (at least I hoped so) and just ran
dpkg -i –force all linux-image-220.127.116.11_18.104.22.168-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
all working fine (despite a blue screen telling me that there is already some kernel in lib/modules/ or something like that with 22.214.171.124 (maybe due to my previous updates) I just created an old kernel directory) but when I ran
it didn't do anything.. so to say no packages upgraded, updated downloaded or whatever...
and after reboot it still uname -r still shows the old kernel version (I didn't expect it to work anyway)
Could anyone please help me and point out what went wrong?
Regards and thanks in advance!
