Dear h2,
today I discovered one problem running your excellent smxi,
more precisely the kernel guess and propose routines proposed to me to install 2.6.25-7.slh.1-sidux-amd64 latest kernel but this is wrong! My pcbox is only Pentium III (Coppermine) and does not runs 64 bit kernel. Please check.

Best Regards,
Mike Kranidis

That is clearly a bug. Please show me this output:

:: Code ::
uname -m | grep -o 'x86_64'

uname -r


the only way the script is supposed to offer an amd64 kernel is if the operating system returns a not null value for the first test.

However, from the output above, I see it is correctly determining that it is 32 bit, so I think the error must lie deeper in.

Please copy and paste this command string into your terminal and hit enter (copy and paste: highlight the code; click in terminal, then click center mouse button to paste):

:: Code ::
grep-dctrl --no-field-names --show-field=Depends --field=Package linux-image-2.6-sidux-686 /var/lib/apt/lists/*_Packages


then show me this

:: Code ::
grep-dctrl --no-field-names --show-field=Depends --field=Package linux-image-2.6-686 /var/lib/apt/lists/*_Packages


That will give me exactly the data that is processed so I can debug it.

Thanks for your bug report, that is now fixed, I'd allowed a possible null value to enter into the kernel available test, that's corrected now, only old style syntax slh kernels would have triggered it, which is why I didn't find it in my tests here, and debian kernels would never have triggered it.

Thanks for letting me know though, it should now be fixed and working fine again.
