Dear Desbrieres and Graziano,
I tried to install the kernel linux -libre-2.6.37 as suggested.But I am not able to do so.The kernel 2.6.24-24 generic has not been replaced by the new kernel.
I am quoting the error messages:"sudo: unable to resolve host $HOSTNAME .
short read in buffer_copy (backend dpkg-deb during `./boot/vmlinuz-2.6.37-libre-planet'.
....... updating /boot/grub/menu.lst.
I also give the output of cat /etc/hosts
" localhost "name".
I really do not know what to do now.Any help will be greatly appreciated.

With Best Regards,
ArunPrasath V

Thanks Graziano,

Maybe the lkos one is better for him (it's build for gnewsense) (follow lkos link) and get the
gnewsense one.

Ton install it, just dpkg -i *.deb

Enjoy freedom and welcome to gNewSense Arun!

Freedom is not just a word, it's a duty.
