This may sound like a silly question, but I am interested in the answer to help broaden my understanding of Linux Mint.
I have installed Linux Mint 5, Elyssa on my desktop and my laptop. When I key uname -r into the terminal on my desktop it returns 2.6.24-25-generic, but the same command on my laptop responds with 2.6.24-16-generic. I have no idea why the kernel versions are different. They were both installed at approximately the same date, and both have been regularly updated. I have made no known effort to make one kernel version any different than the other. Can someone please enlighten me as why they are not the same?
