Upgrading kernel in ubuntu 9.04

Posted in Uncategorized by sqllyw on 08/14/2009

This is about 9.04 but should be applicable to other versions as well.


1) get your kernel version from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
I downloaded following filels:
linux-headers-2.6.30-020630_2.6.30-020630_all.deb
linux-headers-2.6.30-020630-generic_2.6.30-020630_i386.deb
linux-image-2.6.30-020630-generic_2.6.30-020630_i386.deb

2) put the files under one directory, cd to that directory
3) sudo dpkg -i *.deb
4) sudo reboot, choose the kernel version from boot menu, that’s it.
