(looks solved) Why no Debian Kernel 4.9 updates ?

#1 Post by zorzi » Mon Jul 16, 2018 5:15 am

Hello,

With Debian 9.5 yesterday update, I see that my Debian kernel 4.9.0-6 should have been updated to 4.9.0-7.

Why still no updates with MX ? Is there something with MX policy locking automatic kernel updates ?

Thanks for reading and helping

we do not have debian's kernel metapackages installed by default since we don't use the debain stable kernel by default, plus they changed the name of the kernel package so they won't auto update even if you have the debian kernel's installed.

you can install this one:

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/lin ... .0-7-amd64

or whichever version matches your architecture.

we will see about updating our mx-packageinstaller->popular apps kernel entry as well. Thanks.

Hello, and thanks for answering.

But this other topic was related to MX specific 4.15 Kernel.

As you may know. I had switched to Debian 4.9 kernel (via Mx package installer) from debian repo. So debian kernel updates should follow. And I now wonder why my Debian kernel stays stuck to 4.9.0-6. From what I read on Debian forums, missing package linux-image-amd64 just may be the cause.

Sorry, I hadn't seen your post. Thanks for answering. I've been told that missing meta-package linux-image-amd64 may be the cause.

It seems MX-Package Installer did not install meta-packages "linux-image-amd64" and "linux-headers-amd64" when I installed Debian kernel 4.9 (via popular apps => kernels => etc.)

Maybe you should match this parameter, in my opinion.

Thanks for helping.

I've just checked with

Code: Select all

apt policy linux-image-4.9.0-6-amd64 linux-headers-4.9.0-6-amd64
Those will be installed from MXPI fetched from http://security.debian.org :

Code: Select all

linux-headers-4.9.0-6-amd64
