The kernel lives in packages with a base name of linux-image. To see
what kernel is installed:

$ dpkg -l|grep linux-image

To see what kernels are available:

$ apt-cache search linux-image

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

Arguing on the Internet is like running in the Special Olympics.
Even if you win, you're still retarded.
