(normally, i'd ask this on the ubuntu users mailing list but i'm
getting kind of weirded out by how so many people there don't seem to
when i do a normal apt-get update/upgrade combo, why is it that
three kernel-related packages sometimes get held back? as i read it,
i can, if i want, run:
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
to pull them in. is that the recommended way? thanks.
