Upgrade troubel slack 10.1 to slack 10.2


hi guys,

i was just upgrading from slack 10.1 to slack 10.2 using slapt-get --dist-upgrade

everything is upgraded except teh kernel headers and source , I am still stuck on the 2.4.29 kernel

is was trying to find te right packages but fond nothing on linuxpackages.net.

I noticed the bari.i image in the distro root but i dont want to copy paste !
</!

the message :

slapt-get --upgrade

Reading Package Lists... Done
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
kernel-ide kernel-headers alsa-utils kernel-source aaa_elflibs devs
alsa-driver alsa-lib kernel-modules alsa-oss
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.

!/>

OK her we go :

1. is the 2.4.31 more stable an faster ? -> so is ist worth the trouble of upgrading ?

2. If so > how do i make it work ??

any ideas without compiling from source ??

why are you going to linuxpackages.net.?? just use this.........

the "k" dir has the kernel source pack............I think "d" dir has the kernel-ide package..............and just do a "upgradepkg" on the tarballs
