deleted packages in ubuntu lts ppa
The Kernel PPA has never been used to provide officially supported
kernels. Its always been experimental. If you want an official LTS
backported kernel, then you must install it from the regular Lucid
lucid:~$ apt-cache search linux-image|grep lts
linux-image-generic-lts-backport-maverick - Generic Linux kernel image
linux-image-generic-lts-backport-natty - Generic Linux kernel image
linux-image-server-lts-backport-maverick - Linux kernel image on Server
linux-image-server-lts-backport-natty - Linux kernel image on Server
linux-image-virtual-lts-backport-maverick - Linux kernel image for
linux-image-virtual-lts-backport-natty - Linux kernel image for virtual
Furthermore, use email@example.com for questions of this nature.

Are we getting a serious answer to this problem? I cannot use the
intended kernel since it is missing an essential component required to
run this kernel in a PV environment. Not to mention the total mess-up
you guys did while not doing a proper QA on the main release kernel thus
broking the boot process in PV on xenServer enterprise or any other xen
server. So YES, you CANNOT use the provided kernel for the 32b arch.
Anyway, what is the reason behind deleting the backported kernel
packages? The backported-virtual metapackage is now empty and we are
pretty much running out of patience with Canonical decisions to just
delete and replace stuff and breaking all attempts to certify Ubuntu LTS
on our systems.

Is there a reason why the Ubuntu PPA was emptied on 29 June 2011. Those
of us who rely on linux -virtual kernel images are going to be greatly
disappointed about missing essential updated kernel for our production
environment virtual machine client xenU.
What exactly are you using the kernel-ppa for? You should be using one
of the LTS backport meta packages in Lucid, or otherwise using the
release for which the kernel was intended.
