Hello,
I am using 2.6.27-7-generic kernel and where do I get yum for my ubintu distribution?

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,

ubuntu afaik is debian based and uses apt. Although you could probably install yum with the help of alien. Not that it'd solve anything for you.

Hello Fatima,

You can download it here. But did you really mean Ubintu or Ubuntu? Because yum is for rpm based distros and will not do you any good on Ubuntu as far as I know.

Kind regards,

Eric
