So I have a Debian squeeze i386 install, and I'm trying to update to 3.2. I added the sources to the backports, I updated apt-get, I installed the
firmware-linux-free, and when I try to install the image it freezes. It prompts me to say yes, and seems to finish, but rather than returning to the console, it just displays this screen that says:
* Some HP Smart Array controllers are now handled by the new 'hpsa' driver, rather than the 'cciss' driver. ... blah blah blah some boring stuff ... -- Ben Hutchings <firstname.lastname@example.org> Wed, 16 Mar 2011 13:19:34 +0000 (END)
I read somewhere that this happens if you don't have the non-free firmware, which I installed. It still doesn't work. The computer is an HP(which is apparently the type of computers that have these problems).
Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Maybe it's something entirely different, I've never updated the kernel before.
