Hi Lina,

the best way is to install the package "linux-image-XXX-XXX", where XXX-XXX
depends on your used kernel.

This package makes sure, that the kernel for your debian version is always in
the latest version.

In my case this is
Kernel: linux-image-3.1.0-1-686-pae
Package to make sure, the latest version: linux-image-686-pae

Hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hans

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Do you wish to
install a Debian stock binary kernel image package? In that case,
Hans' post should answer your question. Or are you trying to build
a custom kernel from source? In that case, why do you believe that
you need to build a custom kernel? What is the ultimate objective?
