Installing a New Linux Kernel on Ubuntu 12.04
Whilst this may be common knowledge for those who have been working with Ubuntu for a while, it took me a few google searches to figure out, so here is the process I have settled on.
sudo apt-get update # List available versions sudo apt-cache search linux-image-generic-lts linux-image-generic-lts-quantal - Generic Linux kernel image linux-image-generic-lts-raring - Generic Linux kernel image linux-image-generic-lts-saucy - Generic Linux kernel image linux-image-generic-lts-trusty - Generic Linux kernel image # Install one sudo apt-get install -y linux-image-generic-lts-trusty sudo reboot
After a reboot, things should come up nice and happy.
