restricted modules aren't upgraded when kernel is

Bug #28606 reported by Ramon de Ruiter
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-restricted-modules-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I've had this issue several times. Most recently when i upgraded from Breezy to Dapper and yesterday Dapper's kernel was upgraded.
It would be nice that when the kernel is upgraded to x.y.z, linux-restricted-modules-x.y.z is also installed. And the previous version should also be uninstalled.

I have experienced the same problem. It would be easily fixed if the installer installed the linux-restricted-modules-<cpu> package, rather than the current kernel version.

On an Athlon box install linux-restricted-modules-k7 rather than linux-restricted-modules-2.6.15-23-k7.

Hmm i was going to report that i don't experience this bug anymore. I have install the linux-restricted-modules-<my-arch> package. As tuxinvader mentioned, this package absolutely should be installed by default!
