Ubuntu – Error while removing the new kernel 2.6.37


I tried to install the new kernel but something went wrong and I'm trying to remove it now.
The error massege is:

mhd@Tarek-Laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install -f

The previous unsloved error is on this bug.

This is my grub configuration file:

# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
RUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1024x768-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap" video=uvesafb:mode_option=>>1024x768-24<<,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" vga=792 splash"

thank you for answering.

Best Answer

I found the fix for this bug by this codes:

sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-2.6.37-020637-generic.postrm
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-2.6.37-020637-generic.list

sudo apt-get clean all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I ran sudo apt-get update twice.

Then I run synaptic and manually remove the package and my system is clean again.

Many thanks to this blog.
