Howto Upgrade your kernel the easy way (Ubuntu/LinuxMint)

First check what kernel you have:

uname -a

to determine if you have a i386 or amd64.

NOTE: In case you have an new ATI graphics card you will very probably need to update to the latest drivers first for your Xorg to work with the newest kernels!!!

you have to install the 3 .deb files from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline exactly in the following order:


Kernel .deb files

Kernel .deb files





















1) Install linux-headers-XXXXX_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-XXXXX_all.deb

2) Install linux-headers-XXXXX_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-XXXXX_amd64.deb

3) Install linux-image-XXXXX_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-image-XXXXX_amd64.deb

After that just reboot.
