Default -Stop Showing Kernel Updates In Update Manager?

[10.04]-Stop Showing Kernel Updates In Update Manager?

Hi,

How can I tell Update Manager to stop showing kernel updates?
I am running a newer kernel than what is being show.
Thanks!

Jesse

Why not disable the Update Manager from "Startup Application" and do
the update && upgrade in the terminal when you want to?

That will not stop apt from trying to install the kernels in the repos.

You have to give linux-image-* and linux-headers-* a priority of "-1"
in /etc/apt/preferences. I've never used the gui package manager so
I've no idea whether it will respect this setup but apt-get and
aptitude will.

Oops. I answered earlier and assumed that it was a self-built one...

this happens through the linux-meta package, if you uninstall all
installed packages the command

apt-cache showsrc linux-meta|grep ^Binary

drops out, update-manager will stop providing updates for the depending
binaries from the linux source package note that is at your own risk and
also note that you will miss updates to the libc headers (binary
package: linux-libc-dev) through this.
