Re: error during udrc-dkms


It should also be mentioned, you can use apt-get upgrade package-name to upgrade packages without upgrading everything.  Eg. sudo apt-get upgrade nano only upgrades the nano editor (and packages that it depends upon) and will not do a general upgrade.

The general rule of thumb should be to only upgrade when needed, eg. to address a bug/new feature or security issue, not just because there is a newer version.

On the systems I have tried to do the apt-get upgrade, the kernel

working fine for me on those systems.  What I'm saying is if you try to
do an apt-get upgrade it is not catastrophic. The kernel upgrade should
fail & you will be left with a working system.

I will let you know when an 'apt-get upgrade' is working as expected.
I am thinking this will be several months out. A patch must be accepted
in the Linux kernel (see and then Raspbian will choose a
kernel to include in their distribution.
