Check the kernel version
I run the (Sickness) backtrack update script daily.
how do I tell if I have BT5R1 from updating ?
I ran this and here are the results --
:~# cat /etc/issue
BackTrack 5 - Code Name Revolution 64 bit\n \l
I want to know if I have taken the R1 update or not?
this is version
~# uname -r 2.6.38
I cant find reference so I still don't know if I took R1 or not ??
the new kernel is 220.127.116.11
during the days of transition to the new kernel has this happened in MY BT5:
2.6.38>>> 18.104.22.168>>> 22.214.171.124 (it's R1) bye
root@bt:~# uname -a
Linux bt 126.96.36.199 #1 SMP Thu Aug 18 13:38:02 NZST 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
run apt-get dist-upgrade and that will get it!
Try to run "apt-get install linux-image-188.8.131.52" without quotes. It works for me but you must have grub installed. If you get an error about update-grub, that means you haven't install grub yet. Run the following commands to solve the error:
apt-get install grub
dpkg --configure linux-image-184.108.40.206
