Cannot install the ksplice package using software center on Ubuntu
I have read your question regarding Ksplice package on Ubuntu. I also have the same experience like you did. I have this series of procedure on how to make this installation a success. This procedure uses Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 Lucid
Have an access key. Once you have it, you can use that access key on any number of computers that you administer.
In enabling the Ksplice software repository and install Ksplice package, create “/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ksplice.list” with the following contents
You will then be asked for the access key.
If ever you wanted to automatically install rebootless kernel updates whenever they become available, just edit “/etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf” and set “auto install” as yes.
When you are done with your configuration, please run the following command as root to bring your kernel up to date “uptrack-upgrade –y”
In this case, I have tried this procedure and it succeeded. Why don’t you try this installation process? It may be the answer to your question. I hope this information is a big help.
