This short walkthrough describes how to get the latest linux kernel working under Ubuntu Linux without having to compile it yourself.
This tutorial should work with the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (9.10) and all distributions based on Ubuntu Linux like Mint.
The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic ubuntu configuration.
Note: nVIDIA ForceWare drivers are automatically installed using DKMS (which is included in Ubuntu 8.10 and higher including 9.04 and 9.10)
And in case you don`t want to reboot you should try out Ksplice.
- Download linux-headers-2.6.33-020633_2.6.33-020633_all.deb
- Download your kernel headers package;
- Download your kernel compile;
- Install the files in the same (else it won`t work!)
- In the terminal run:
- Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
For those who want to do their “own” compiles, the source is available here.

Thank you, flawless install… I needed the Cakewalk UA-1G support. Thanks again.
After watching another method configuring for over an hour I found this, thanbks, done before the other configured!
Thank you. I had to do a sudo aptitude purge apparmor to get this to work…
Odd, hada build fail for this.

Is posible install this kernel in ubuntu studio 9.10
It should be possible.
Thank I will give it a go
Hi. I’m new to linux, but I do have a few years computer experience and am not afraid of technical stuff. In your instructions above, you said the following:
“Install the files in the same (else it won`t work!)”
I assume you meant the same folder. Do I run the sudo update-grub command from the same folder that the files are in or can I specify the folder path in the command line? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Same order, my fault …
That worked perfectly to fix my washed out display on the second of my dual monitors with an ATI radeon hd3450 on 10.04 Lucid.
Thank you very very much. Great instructions. Made my day! 🙂
It doesn’t work in my case. It writes it can’t mount something while loading. 🙁
