    This advisory provides a correction to the previous kernel updates,
    which contained an error introduced in kernel-source-2.4.18 version
    2.4.18-7.  This error could result in a kernel "oops" under certain
    For the stable distribution (woody) on the i386 architecture, this
    problem has been fixed in kernel-source-2.4.18 version 2.4.18-12 and
    kernel-image-2.4.18-1-i386 version 2.4.18-10.
    For the stable distribution (woody) on the alpha architecture, this
    problem has been fixed in kernel-source-2.4.18 version 2.4.18-12 and
    kernel-image-2.4.18-1-alpha version 2.4.18-9.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    kernel-source-2.4.20 version 2.4.20-7.
    We recommend that you update your kernel packages.
    If you are using the kernel installed by the installation system when
    the "bf24" option is selected (for a 2.4.x kernel), you should install
    the kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4 package.  If you installed a different
    kernel-image package after installation, you should install the
    corresponding 2.4.18-1 kernel.  You may use the table below as a
    | If "uname -r" shows: | Install this package:
    - ------------------------------------------------------
    | 2.4.18-bf2.4         | kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4
    | 2.4.18-386           | kernel-image-2.4.18-1-386
    | 2.4.18-586tsc        | kernel-image-2.4.18-1-586tsc
    | 2.4.18-686           | kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686
    | 2.4.18-686-smp       | kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686-smp
    | 2.4.18-k6            | kernel-image-2.4.18-1-k6
    | 2.4.18-k7            | kernel-image-2.4.18-1-k7
    NOTE: that this kernel is binary compatible with the previous kernel
    security update, but not binary compatible with the corresponding
    kernel included in Debian 3.0r1.  If you have not already applied the
    previous security update (kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4 version
    2.4.18-5woody1 or any of the 2.4.18-1-* kernels), then any custom
    modules will need to be rebuilt in order to work with the new kernel.
    New PCMCIA modules are provided for all of the above kernels.
    NOTE: A system reboot will be required immediately after the upgrade
    in order to replace the running kernel.  Remember to read carefully
    and follow the instructions given during the kernel upgrade process.
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb

    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
