Hello,
after dist-upgrade i got a 2.6.32-5-amd64 kernel from debian repositories. I also got the 2.6.35-4.slh.9-aptosid-amd64 kernel. Is this normal? is it ok to remove the debian kernel?

Thanks a lot in advance

sidux/aptosid has never / will never install debian kernels automagically.
not because they are bad but because we have our own.
so, i have no idea where how you got that, but you should.
any debian repo in your sources.list? 2.6.32 is quite old.
and yes, you can and should safely remove it.

      Code:
~$ apt-cache policy linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64

  Installed: 2.6.32-21
  Candidate: 2.6.32-22

if you have Debian's linux-image-2.6-amd64 or linux-image-amd64 package
installed, then it will install the Debian's new kernel when they are
uploaded to sid. Removing them, Debian's next new kernel will not be
installed automatically.
