Kernel upgrade questions....

Ummm, Peter, you say the 2.6.11 kernel is f@&*zored, but it is the
kernel being used in Hoary...
Plus kernel is upto 2.6.12 now.
I think possibly the issue could reside elsewhere.
However, I think what Charles may want to do is run a distro-upgrade
through apt (I presume you're running Warty, Charles?)
1) open sources.list in vi (or preferred editor) and change any instance
of Warty to Hoary.
2) run apt-get update
3) run apt-get dist-upgrade
4) reboot (you may have to change menu.list but this will probably have
been done automatically as part of the upgrade.)

Don't use the 2.6.11 kernel - it has "known issues" ( a nice techy way
of saying it's f*$%d )
