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 (10.04 ) and all distributions based on these versions of 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
- Download linux-headers-2.6.34-020634_2.6.34-020634_all.deb
- Download your kernel headers package;
- Download your kernel compile;
- Install the files in the same order (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 also available; linux-source-2.6.34_2.6.34-020634_all.deb
You should mension that the mainline kernel doesnt include the regulat Ubuntu patches etc.
Maybe because I didn`t knew. Thanks chap!
Hey just wanted to say that it works for me and I hope you do more updates thank you.
I dropped updates for the 2.6.33 branch since it was split up per ubuntu version
I will include updates for this one.
kernel.ubuntu.com is down. Is there an alternate mirror?
it works right now
Linux Kernel 2.6.34 do not work!
how can I uninstall
apt-get remove *package name*
thank you and keep up the good work
Needed driver support that 2.6.34 offered. Used your upgrade and it worked great. Much easier than manuel compile. You really helped me out. Thanks.
It also saves you compiling time
Installing .run nvidia driver, installer said that gcc version used to compile the kernel is gcc 4.2 and my ubuntu has gcc 4.4.3 so it can’t proceed.
run apt-get update
and apt-get upgrade
should arrive today;
TY, looking forward to 2.6.35 :^)
Although Linus is on holiday
you could try http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.35-rc3-maverick/
im not sure if it works though
It works :^D
this one too… woot! woot!
I am actually in the process of upgrading to Maverick Meerkat 10.10. It is int he Alpha 2 phase… hey, why not? :^)
any way to use this with ubuntu 910 karmic 126.96.36.199
they left out the gspca driver
this could be, since the version I show you isn`t build the same was as the normal ubuntu kernel
Is there a possibility to upgrade my Ubuntu kernel, without automatic upgrades like using apt?
I really want to do it without programs like apt.
Just check my posts for kernel version 2.6.35 and 2.6.36 on this site.
Thanks very much.
thanks guy, I’ ll try
after finishing it and restart, should I remove the old kernel ? Is there an effect for my lucid lynx ?
I would always keep atleast 1 old kernel if I where you
for fallback purposes

Looks like the last

your totally right
but you don`t need the source
its on the ubuntu site – i don`t manage it nor being responsible for it
i just post simple guides on my site how to upgrade your Ubuntu kernel
and if I where you I would install http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v188.8.131.52-maverick/
which is the latest of the 2.6.34 series
or 2.636 which is the latest stable kernel release

Yes! I just upgraded my Linux Kernel in my Ubuntu Linux to 2.6.36.xxxxxxxxx and guess what no more freezing problems!
I can use Compiz Fusion in full force!
thanx a ton man…. u rock….
this upgrade solved the problem of my inbuilt bluetooth device stopped getting detected in ubuntu 10.04….
i have successfully install Ubuntu 10.04 and update all necessary package but after 1 hours system hang and blank screen but we can access same computer from terminal , any suggest
configuration intel celeron 1.7GHz 1GB RAM
I don`t think anyone can find the solution since it could be due to hundreds of things
That worked a treat. So simple. Many thanks.
