Ubuntu – Get the kernel version from lts package


How do I determine the kernel version that a package like linux-image-generic-lts-saucy will install? Basically I'd like to get what uname -r would report before I actually install this kernel so I can automate the configuration of grub.

Best Answer

Run the below command on terminal,

apt-cache policy linux-image-generic-lts-saucy

It will show the linux-image-generic-lts-saucypackage along with it's version and some other details.
