Still happening on Intrepid.

** Changed in: linux-meta (Ubuntu)
       Status: Fix Released => Confirmed

** Summary changed:

- linux-restricted-modules-server metapackage not present in repository
+ [intrepid] linux-restricted-modules-server metapackage not present in repository

** Description changed:

+ Edit: This is still happening in Intrepid (in my case, up-to-date
+ Intrepid x86_64). I'm leaving the description below for history.
+ 
+ ===
+ 
  System: Hardy x86 (fresh install from RC, latest updates & using main
  repository)
  
  Test case:
  install -server kernel via: sudo apt-get install linux-server
  
  Expected results:
  All necessary packages are installed, including linux-restricted-modules-server and the actual restricted modules package, linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-16-server.
  
  Actual results:
  The linux-restricted-modules-server metapackage does not exist in the repository, and thus linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-16-server will not get installed.
  
  Note: my system uses the nvidia driver via nvidia-glx-new which requires
  restricted modules, and so the -server kernel will boot to the failsafe
  X configuration, unless I remember to manually install  linux-
  restricted-modules-2.6.24-16-server.
