After switching to aptosid d-u returns :_ The package linux-image-2.6.35-4.slh.6-aptosid-686 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it
I followed all recommendations and didn't change anything manually, what could go wrong ?

Hi,

maybe:
      Code:
 uname -a
Linux neskaya 2.6.35-4.slh.8-aptosid-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Sep 12 22:41:45 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

...slh.8...
d-u-ed before 30 minutes.
Does another
      Code:
apt-get update
and d-u or
      Code:
apt-get -f install
fix it?

greets
ayla

You don't run linux-image-2.6.35-4.slh.6-aptosid-686 currently, yes?
(if so, choose an other kernel at boot and do)
      Code:
dpkg --purge linux-image-2.6-aptosid-686 linux-image-2.6.35-4.slh.6-aptosid-686
apt-get update
apt-get install linux-image-2.6-aptosid-686

Thank you DonKult for your input,weird stuff, still the same problem .The kernel is Linux siduxbox 2.6.34-0.slh.11-sidux-686 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Jun 26 15:05:51 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
and I have a feeling something went wrong with changing repositories, d-u is locked-up, complains about missing kernel archive

exact error message please.
What does dpkg tells you if you issue the commands above?

I managed to reinstall aptosid kernel by first removing headers from apt cache using dpkg -r --force-remove-reinstreq
Thanks for you input.The only problem now is that boot-time messages been displayed in huge font, is there a way to control that ?Normally in Sidux they were in my native res.

Having the same issue with the font size. It makes it hard to do anything outside of KDE because you can't fit much text on the screen. Any way to adjust this?
