As said in another thread, the kernels 3.6.xx and following doesn't work well for me. I'm now running the 3.1-6.slh.1 one, which is a bit too old.

Can somebody explain how to download and install the latest kernel of the 3.5 series?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried 3.7.xx which is what we currently have?
I would also try with the Thanatos livecd (which has 3.6 kernel) as this problem is a rather strange one.

There is no easy way to retrieve older kernels. If you don't have them in /var/cache/apt/archives you might know someone who does (and can be acquired over a safe communication channel); no other option I would know of as these kernels aren't supported anymore. If you really have to stick to one in this age-area try the current debian-kernel (which will be released with wheezy) based on 3.2.

There is a reason for not having an (aggressive) autoremove for kernels you know …
