This short walkthrough describes how to get the latest linux kernel version 3.3.working under Ubuntu Linux without having to compile it yourself.
This guide should work with the latest version of Ubuntu Linux and most Ubuntu-based distributions including Mint.
The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic ubuntu configuration.
Note: ATI, Intel and NVIDIA drivers are automatically installed using DKMS, if you have these drivers installed and are up-to-date. This is not a guarantee!
- Download the kernel headers package;
- And the appropriate package for your system
- And the accompanying compiled kernel image;
- Install the files in the same order as above.
- In the terminal run:
- Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
The source can be found on www.kernel.org
Do you think its worth updating from 3.0?
And btw, i’m just curious, did you freelance web design and programming?
I do freelance webdesign and webscripting (PHP/SQL).
it always depends on what you use linux for
I am using linux mint 12
Installed nicely on my kubuntu 11.10. Now no more usb acess:)
Thanks for the tutorial. 🙂
What I don’t understand. I downloaded the AMD64 versions, when I open the files with the Ubuntu sw center there is written: Linux kernel image for version 3.4.0 on 32 bit x86 SMP.
you are not running an AMD64-based kernel but a 32 bit kernel
Strange, because I installed the 64bit version. Oo
I downloaded 3.4 precise AMD 64. When I open it in the software center it says:
“Linux kernel image for version 3.4.0 on 32 bit x86 SMP”
Maybe the naming is wrong.
could be, but that`s not my fault
I didn’t said this 😉
have you found the solution yet? hades1 or hades2?
Do I really need to download all those debs or just the image.deb???
just those for your system
so either x32 or AMD64
