    Old Kernel Headers not in the repository anymore?

    Today, I did a fresh install of Kali 1.1.0a.

    I updated my "/etcapt/sources.list" file (as specified in the (official documentation) to be the following:

    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    Then, I did a "apt-get update" without any errors.

    Next, when I do a "apt-get install kernel-headers-$(uname -r)", it is unable to locate the package.

    Is this because the old kernel headers have been removed from the central package repository?
    If so, is there any way that I can install them on Kali version 1.1.0a?

    Thanks,
    Zami

    Thanks, that explains it. Unfortunately, after adding the "old" repository, it still failed to install, citing conflicts with GCC. Too bad.
