fetch one from kernel.org and build it using your current kernel config. You are using bt, you should know how to do this, don't you?

thank you friend
but i am new in Linux i know some of the step but dont know the internal things
i used these commands

apt-get update

apt-get install -d linux-image

cd /var/cache/apt/archives/

dpkg -i –force all linux-image-2.6.34_2.6.34-10.00.Custom_i386.deb

apt-get dist-upgrade

fix-splash

but of no use

i also try this


1. Download linux-headers-2.6.34-020634_2.6.34-020634_all.deb

2. Download your kernel headers package;
I386: linux-headers-2.6.34-020634-generic_2.6.34-020634_i386.deb

3. Download your kernel compile;
I386: linux-image-2.6.34-020634-generic_2.6.34-020634_i386.deb

4. Install the files in the same order (else it won`t work!)

5. In the terminal run:sudo update-grub

6. Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu




but all of above encounter some type of error

thank for you time and help

I never used bt myself so I encourage you to go the manual way of building from source. All you need is bt4 kernel config: either it's in /boot or in /proc/config.gz or you may want to ask that on IRC channel of bt @ freenode.
