I need at least 2.6.19. I've apt-get update, upgrade, dist-upgrade but can't find anything newer than 2.6.17. I have no idea nor want to compile one. What can i do? Thanks in advance.

You need to add the testing

You need to add the testing repository to your repositories. You can do this in Synaptic or edit your /etc/apt/sources.list, and then just click on "Reload" and then "Mark all upgrades" To add the testing repositories, read this link Another easy way to get this right is to download the new 2.0 RC1 release and install. It is quite stable (more than "stable" IMHO) and gives you all you need straight away. The better way is to set up the upgrade and keep it current.

It worked in Synaptic

I added it to the repositories, but i've decided not to update the kernel yet since i found updated versions of other packages i needed. Thanks.
