[solved] linux-headers-3.19.3 missing
« on: 2016/05/22, 18:22:52 »
My / on my ssd  is smaller than optimal.  I keep deleting things when it gets too big.  In /var I  deleted) some linux-headers-3.xx that I thought was old old invalid headers after I installed a new kernel.  Silly me.

On an apt-get dist-upgrade I got some warnings, and they continue

(Reading database ... 184912 files and directories currently installed.)     

I saw elsewhere - something similar on Ubuntu 13.04 and did (I have used these commands before)
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -rf
sudo apt-get update   
Then I tried "apt-get remove ncdu"  followed by "apt-get install ncdu.  It still comlains about missing headers

So I did and apt-get install of the three linux-headers-3 ...   the important lines were

Code: [Select]
linux-headers-3.19.3-towo.3-siduction-amd64 is already the newest version (3.19-12).
linux-headers-3.19.3-towo.3-siduction-amd64 is already the newest version (3.19-12).
linux-headers-3.17-5.towo-siduction-amd64 is already the newest version (3.17-13).

It still continues with further updates, but causes no problems.  I do not have these headers listed as available on 2 Debian testing installs -  searched via aptitude search.  In siduction

Code: [Select]
apt-cache search linux-headers-3

on my workstation uname -a tells me
Code: [Select]
Linux sidbox 4.5.5-towo.1-siduction-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT siduction 4.5-11 (2016-05-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux
when is it that you ran apt dist-upgrade; when was your last kernel update?

for kernel / header removal please use the dedicated application "kernel-remover"

uname -a
Linux rauneseee 4.5.5-towo.1-siduction-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT siduction 4.5-11 (2016-05-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I added the new kernel maybe 2 days ago.  journalct -b -0 after reboot into new kernel showed no new flaws  And as I was getting over 90% full on / I did a little pruning on /var/cache/apt/ archives and stumbled upon some linux-headers-3.xx elsewhere and deleted them.  "kernel-remove" was done prior to the deleing, I let kernel 4.3 go and now have the above and 4.5.1-towo.3 as a backup.

If you use apt install instead of apt-get install, you do not need to worry about /var/cache/apt/archives anymore. apt does not keep debs of installed packages anymore, apt-get does. That also goes for apt-get dist-upgrade vs. apt dist-upgrade.

Devil, yes, thanks.  On a new testing install on new computer, I have moved to apt.  I am using apt more on my siduction box here. 

Next thing for me to do is look more at apt-cache of the old linux-headers-3.xx that I have only in Siduction.  But I am getting paid overtime to spend 12 hours with a friend in the hospital., and it is just warnings.

Trying to add solved to the top, oh well.

I finally got rid of the warning messages via going to the 4.6.1. kernel, removing all the linuxheaders 3.17 3.18 and 3.19 and dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-4.6.1-towo.1-siduction-amd64
