Re: Kernel source doesn't match kernel?

I checked 'uname -a' and everything seemed to match.

I am going to follow Tim's advice and upgrade everything. I couldn't do that then because I was running the live CD, and a reboot would be required, impossible with a live CD. I will install it to hard disk and upgrade everything (including kernel if suggested by Adept) and see how it goes. Kind of busy with something else right now.

Thank you.
