just wanted to install newer kernel sources via gslapt, but it shows a lock symbol for that package and does not let me select anything. A quick search for "locked" here did not bring up anything interesting, but I saw this: http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=10987.0
so I have a way to get new kernel sources. But out of curiosity: How do I unlock a package? Or is this implicitely done because gslapt cannot install it in a safe&proper way?
And another one: The latest kernel on the FTP storage seems to be 18.104.22.168 (kernel-22.214.171.124-i686-1vl60.tlz) - that's already better than what I have, but the newest stable kernel at www.kernel.org
is 126.96.36.199 - are there any vector specific patches or can I install the vanilla kernel?
