Ubuntu Linux kernel 5.2 installation guide

This installation guide describes how to install Linux Kernel 5.2.4 on Ubuntu Linux. This works with the latest version of Ubuntu Linux and most Ubuntu-based distributions including Kubuntu and Mint.

There is no post for 5.2.0 / x.x.1 / x.x.2 because there was a compile error for i386 and AMD64 which are the most used platforms.

The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic Ubuntu configuration. A low latency version is also available in the directory of the linked files.
