Kernel version still at 3.2 after UP7

Postby francheu » Mon Nov 11, 2013 1:49 pm

Hi,
After UP7, my linux kernel is 3.10 on one of my (old) laptop, but still 3.2 on the other (recent).
In this last case the kernel is 3.2.0-4-686-pae. I don't know if the PAE version is the reason for that...
Any hint ?

The repositories seem alright... but somehow the new kernel wasn't installed during the upgrade. Probably it's because the package that depends on the latest kernel (linux-image-686-pae) wasn't installed before the upgrade.
You can install it manually:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install linux-image-686-pae

This package should pull in linux-image-3.10-2-686-pae and get you a new kernel.
