dkms transition broke linux-image-server

dkms only recommends some headers, not all of them.

I think we want something like this when we're using dkms:

  headers_want=$(dpkg-query -W -f '${Source}\t${Package}\n' 'linux-image-*' | \
   sed -nre 's/^linux-(meta|latest[^\t]*)\tlinux-image-(.*)$/linux-headers-\2/p')
  for m in $headers_want; do
    aptitude show $m > /dev/null && modules="$modules $m"

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

This got fixed a while back, the installer now uses a variant of the AFS debathenifier code, which will install headers for any kernel you're running which is not itself a metapackage.
