updated linux-restricted-modules not installed with kernel upgrade

Asked by Jamin W. Collins on 2008-06-18

During the last two sessions of updates, one system has consistently installed the kernel updates but not the associated linux-restricted-modules package required for its video hardware. Manual installation of the linux-restricted-modules package works fine. What would prevent the system from automatically installing the new linux-restricted-modules package?

Hi,

Verify that you have the meta-package « linux-restricted-modules-generic » installed (via Synaptic).
Otherwise, install it.
