1. Hi,

    Ubuntu 12.04.3 Server (Needs to be 12.04.3 because of the "bug" in the 12.04.4 update. Building a CUDA5.5/Ubuntu 12.04 system for CPU/GPU number crunching)
    Clean installation!

    Anybody who can help me solve this problem???

    This will instruct your grub to use all dependencies for the kernel, generally when we do updates/upgrades some times kernel get updated with linux-image-xxx-generic and linux-image-generic but it misses its linux-image-extra which causes the issue of missing packages. Better practise for upgrading kernel is to install 3 packages at the same time otherwise if any package will miss it will get refused by grub and causing the issue of missing package.
