I'm having a xen box which runs squeeze.
linux-image-2.6.32-5-686-bigmem never upgrades properly and I want to stop it from upgrading any more. It's annoying that it tries and fails every time I run
echo "linux-image-2.6.32-5-686-bigmem hold" | dpkg --set-selections echo "linux-image-686-bigmem hold" | dpkg --set-selections
and I get
root@y:/etc# dpkg --get-selections | grep hold linux-image-2.6.32-5-686-bigmem hold linux-image-686-bigmem hold
But it still tries to upgrade
root@y:/etc# apt-get upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

I got below reply with
dpkg -l linux-image-2.6.32-5-686-bigmem
