    What do you get when running apt-get -u dist-upgrade ?

    The newest one in Ubuntu is not 2.6.32-25 but 2.6.32.24.25 ;)
    This might have caused some irritation ... Look it up in Synaptic!

    I have 2.6.32-24.43 in Lucid, which is the latest AFAIK.
    mack_guy might also want to try sudo update-grub ... ?

    You should see something like this:
    Code:
    $ apt-cache policy linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic
    
    linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic:
      Installed: 2.6.32-24.43
      Candidate: 2.6.32-24.43
    
    uname -r tells you what linux-image you need to type in, in my case it says 2.6.32-24-generic

    Kernel 2.6.32-25 is in the repos. I know cause I have it (I manually downloaded each part...all 7 of them). Maybe check the Proposed section in Synaptic's repos? I don't know if that will work, but, like I said, it's there.

    For the longest time I've been running kernels 2.6.34-5 or 2.6.35-20 on my Sony laptop because the 2.6.32 kernel didn't like my Ati Radeon 9700 graphics card. But due to the kernel security issue that was discussed here recently I decided to step back down to the latest 2.6.32 kernel and search for a solution for my graphics problem and I found it. All I needed to do was add radeon.modeset=0 to the end of my /boot/grub/grub.cfg kernel entry. My Sony works great now.

    Later...

    Unless you got really good reasons to use proposed I'd stick with the stable kernel which currently is the one I posted above (and I guess the one you are running too).

    Yes, I'd suggest that users stick with the most stable version as well though 2.6.32-25 does seem to be quite stable so far. Generally, if there's anything wrong with a proposed kernel update it shows up rather quickly (not being able to boot up to Desktop, screen resolution taking a nose dive, etc.). The Proposed checkbox in Synaptic is for the adventurous.

    thanks guys for your kind replay i guss i stick with it for a while and see

    in my laptop which is Intel base no graphic card it got 2.6.32-25 kernel

    and

    my desktop
    root@mac-desktop:/home/mac# uname -r
    2.6.32-24-generic

    which made me wonder :p

    ocky i did sudo update grub which i guss wont be needed as i use fedora grub but to check ubuntu bootfile also i check in root/boot folder there is no 2.6.32-25-generic or
    initrd-img 2.6.32-25-generic i almost search each file every where including folders to synaptic update manager it show nothing about kernel mr X 25...LOL

    also i got fedora grub in which i manually edit ubuntu kernel update every every:)

    so i keep my fingers cross and wait for another update :D

    Why not make a custom symlink boot entry for Ubuntu 10.04 in the 40_custom
    file in /etc/grub.d - then you don't have to manually edit after each new kernel update.
    Eg.
    #! /bin/sh -e

    cat << EOF
    menuentry "Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Symlink Boot" {
    linux (hd1,1)/vmlinuz root=UUID=7fee477-6a63-492e-839c-4d27ce99e2cf ro quiet splash
    initrd (hd1,1)/initrd.img
    }
    EOF
