Linux Kernel 2.6.35 installation guide for Ubuntu Linux

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 10.10 ) and most 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, if you have these installed and up-to-date.

Installation Guide

  1. Download linux-headers-2.6.35-020635_2.6.35-020635_all.deb
  2. Download your kernel headers package;
    I386: linux-headers-2.6.35-020635-generic_2.6.35-020635_i386.deb
    AMD64: linux-headers-2.6.35-020635-generic_2.6.35-020635_amd64.deb
  3. Download your kernel compile;
    I386: linux-image-2.6.35-020635-generic_2.6.35-020635_i386.deb
    AMD64: linux-image-2.6.35-020635-generic_2.6.35-020635_amd64.deb
  4. Install the files in the same order (else it won`t work!)
  5. In the terminal run:
    sudo update-grub
  6. Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
    If it`s not there check all steps (and ofcourse errors)

For those who want to do their “own” compiles, the source is also available; linux-source-2.6.35_2.6.35-020635_all.deb

If you use a different order than I recommended you`ll surely get some errors. I don`t say it won`t work but I can`t guarantee it.

Sorry for the confusion, I didn’t see they were coming from kernel.ubuntu.com.

As far as I know this is the latest official kernel but for Ubuntu
without the patches that are present in the kernel ppa

Hi,

Your source package:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.35-maverick/linux-source-2.6.35_2.6.35-020635_all.deb

Seems to be empty:
proppy@unubore:~/Desktop/sc2$ dpkg -c linux-source-2.6.35_2.6.35-020635_all.deb
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2010-08-02 11:07 ./

Correct
if you check the source you`ll see its 2.2kb
I didn`t saw it untill you told me
Thank you

How about your kernel and ATI graphics?
I get an error (fglrx), tried to reinstall but no luck.

This is the kernel that worked for me (kudos). 2.6.35-14 did not work –
nvidia driver problem}

Now to the VMware compile patch!
