While installing package kernel-devel-

-------- Uninstall Beginning --------
Module:  sn9c20x
Version: 20100330-1pclos2010
Kernel: (i586)

libparted0 is listed in Synaptic as 2.3-1pclos2010. Parted is listed as not installed.

Both kernel- and kernel- are marked as installed. However, when I reboot is reported as the version loading.

If you need any other info, please provide detailed directions as how to obtain it.

If I need to upgrade libparted0 beyond the version in Synaptic, please provide detailed directions as how to do this.

When this bug is resolved, please provide detailed instructions as how to resolve my kernel upgrade process.

Thanks in anticipation and for everyone's hard work.
