Re: Why do Kernel headers for 5.15 still show in my update manager?

Hi, I remember that, when using Linux Mint 20.3 with hardware enhancement, kernel was 5.15 but a 5.4 header was still kept. It is probably the same here, you use an HWE version with kernel 6.5 and a 5.15 header is still kept. So, don't uninstall it. Just try "sudo apt-get autoremove --purge&quo...

Re: Clamav package

The Clam question comes up regularly. I think that the consensus answer is that if you are dual booting with Windows, then you should use Clam. I disagree. For desktop Linux it's useless snake oil, which even decreases security (by enormously increasing the attack surface of your system). I disagre...

Re: Why do Kernel headers for 5.15 still show in my update manager?

Hi,

Check with Synaptic that you have not kept 5.15 headers, and eventually uninstall them.

You can also try
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge
