Default Bug#624713: general: linux-2.6.30-2 has no headers package

Package: general
Severity: normal

I install Debian 6 from one of RC2 CD's. Kernel 2.6.32-5 want not
work on my machine. But I was able to install 2.6.30-2 kernel, it works
fine. But now I have a problem with this kernel: it has no appropriate
headers package. Without headers I can't run VirtualBox.

We no longer support Linux 2.6.30, and it has many known security flaws
that have been fixed in the versions that we continue to support (2.6.32
in Debian 6.0 and 2.6.26 in Debian 5.0).

Please retry the installation using Debian 6.0.1. If the current kernel
based on Linux 2.6.32 does not work for you, please report *that* as a
bug.
