Upgrade Plesk (which downgraded kernel)

    I tried upgrading Plesk to 8.1.1 but was told that my Debian installation was out of date, so I used apt-get distupgrade to get the latest packages. It removed my kernel in order to upgrade it, but the upgrade failed and now I'm left with 2.4.

    Now when I try to get a newer kernel back, I'm getting this error:

    I have no idea what to do, if my box crashes then it's not going to be able to reboot without the kernel there!

    Suggestions?!

    what says

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    uname -a
    dpkg -l |grep kernel

    ok, i think there is no way for you...

    plesk 8.1.x only supports debian sarge 3.1

    it looks like you are using debian testing / unstable

    maybe this week swsoft releases the plesk 8.2 with support for debian etch 4.0 but that's still another system then yours ....

    you can try correct your source list like this:

    deb http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main contrib

    deb ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free
    deb-src ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free

    deb http://autoinstall.plesk.com/debian/PSA_8.1.1 sarge all

    and

    apt-get install -f linux-image-2.6-686


    but i think a fresh install is your only way to go ...

    That's odd, 8.1.0 has been running since it's release without any problems. It was only upgrading to 8.1.1 that caused problems.

    I have no idea. Although making the changes to the sources list has helped.

    Do you have any idea how I can sort out the kernel problem?

    Thanks for your help. I think I've fixed it.
    I appreciate it :)

    One more thing, is there any way to know if the machine will boot OK?
