upgrade from 2.6.27-7 generic to server 2.6.27-9

Postby goldstar1 on Sun May 10, 2009 4:37 pm

Lets see, I haven't used Mint in a little while so I opened a terminal...

sudo apt-get update

then...

sudo apt-get upgrade

suddenly I have version 2.6.27-9-server without any bells and whistles such as nvidia modules and the like.

what went wrong here?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Which Mint exactly do you use?
Should not happen - but you should be able to select the old kernel in grub

Felicia 2.6.27-7 Generic

I haven't been using Mint for a little while because Firefox keeps locking up and I've never found a solution, so I did the above thinking maybe a fix would be there. The update also installed 'server 2.6.27-7.'

Yes, I can still get to 2.6.27-7 generic so nothing is lost. I'm curious as to why I got a server --- hey, servers good too. I'll simply get the bells and whistles for the server. Mint is my favorite system.

This beats me - I might back up my Felicia and try your recipe to see what happens
