Just noticed that despite having the kernel updated regularly, the version in use is quite outdated:
$ uname -a Linux test 2.6.31-302-rs #7 SMP Thu Oct 29 22:57:03 UTC 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Strangely, this version of the kernel doesn't even appear to be installed:
$ dpkg --list | grep linux-image rc linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic 2.6.32-41.90 amd64 Linux kernel image for version 2.6.32 on x86/x86_64 ii linux-image-3.13.0-54-generic 3.13.0-54.91 amd64 Linux kernel image for version 3.13.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-extra-3.13.0-54-generic 3.13.0-54.91 amd64 Linux kernel extra modules for version 3.13.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-generic 18.104.22.168.61 amd64 Generic Linux kernel image
Also, there is no mention of 2.6 in
/boot/grub/grub.cfg, so where does it come from, and how do I get the system to use the 3.13 kernel?
