Better to run slapt-get since it excludes kernel upgrades by default. 
That means kernels do not get replaced unless specific instructions get 
provided to do so from the installer.On Sat, 29 Aug 2009, Jude DaShiell

the replace but if one or both were not available don't do the replace, 
those of us who haven't yet succeeded with kernel building might have a 
smoother upgrade path.
