Edmund,

Not sure what you mean by this-
"Now I suggest to uninstall old kernels and related components if new
kernel is working fine. Use
Synaptic, Adept, KPackageKit, APT at command line, etc or other tool to do it."

can I use the adept_manager????

ray
Ps and this seems very complicated????????
