The command above executes `uname -r` (the quotes of left-ticks (`), rather
than right single quotes (')---the key in the top-left of the keyboard on a
UK keymap) and then inserts the output of that command that onto the end of

I think you're doing rather well not to have a 'linux-image-*' package
installed---that's the kernel (and presumbly the one you booted with).  :-)


  sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r)

which will do the same thing, but with less abigous characters;  you could
also do:

  sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r) $(uname -r)

To find out the name of the kernel you do have:

  dpkg -l linux-image-*

Hope that helps,
