Kernel-Package Screwy


As of Sunday, March 20, 2005

Get this error when trying to upgrade kernel-package, install kernel-package:

Code:
RAVEN:/home/jchap# apt-get install kernel-package
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package kernel-package is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package kernel-package has no installation candidate
I had problems compiling 2.6.11 and 2.6.11.2 with previous version in SID. Some dumb error or bug in it (or gcc). I then grabbed stable version from website and installed it. Voila!

However, after trying an apt-get anything, kernel-package remains a non-upgraded package with the aforementioned error.

This is my sources.list file:

Code:
