Question [kernel-headers-3.2.45-x86-3] OR [kernel-headers-3.2.45_smp-x86-3]?

When I tried to upgrade My Slackware, I got the following error:
Which one of "kernel-headers" should I keep?
What is the best action for me?
#slackpkg upgrade-all

Checking local integrity... DONE
You have a broken /var/log/packages - with two versions of the same package.
The list of packages duplicated in your machine are shown below, but don't
worry about this list - when you select your action, slackpkg will show a
better list:


You can (B)lacklist, (R)emove, or (I)gnore these packages.
Select your action (B/R/I):

depends on the kernel you use. if you use the nonsmp, keep the nonsmp if you use an smp on, keep the smp headers. logic.. that simple

You don't need to upgrade kernel-headers at all. Actually it is safer to keep kernel-headers 3.2.29 around, upgrading them may break glibc.

As far as I know there is no problem keeping both...

You probably got the latest stable kernel version (3.2.45) during your last slackpkg upgrade and now you have kernel headers for both smp and non-smp. Slackpkg erroneously thinks that they are duplicate packages hence the message.

You just need to edit /etc/slackpkg/blacklist and uncomment all of the kernel lines as recommended and then you won't be asked about it again.
