Maintaing linux-image (meta-package) from both vanilla & bpo

Postby DebbyIan » 2019-10-01 15:30

I have installed linux-image (meta-package) and also have bpo in my sources. I haven't yet run "apt upgrade -t bpo-repo" but if I do then linux-image (meta-package) wants to be upgraded overriding the vanilla kernel with the bpo kernel. How can I have both the vanilla and a bpo kernel installed?

You can't, they're both the same package as far as APT is concerned.

As far as I know, you can have just one of the metapackages installed. That doesn't prevent you also manually installing any of the actual kernel and header packages you want, though.
