How to update to latest kernel using crunchbang?


I tried the following command with no succes (all with sudo):

update-grub
aptitude safe-upgrade
aptitude full-upgrade
system-update -f
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get upgrade
----

none of this apps seem to know there are a lot new kernels after the one i have, i guess i should add a repository or something, but i dont know how

if im wrong, please correct me

I think that you must use it: https://launchpad.net/~kernel-ppa/+archive/ppa to get a kernel > 2.6.32

The following commands will update your CrunchBang install to the latest supported kernel:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

you could use the Liquorix kernel if using Debian Crunchbang statler
http://liquorix.net/

dont know if it'll work in derbuntu but it should
works great in my Sid installs
does 9.04 see your drive as hda or sda?
