Postby JeffShepherd on Mon Jun 20, 2011 9:56 am

Hi everyone,

Is there away from within LMDE to upgrade the kernal to a newer version?

Thanks,
Jeff

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you use
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
you should go to kernel 2.6.38.

If you want to use a newer kernel than 2.6.38, there's Liquorix.

Enter this in Terminal and press Enter:
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list

A text editor opens. Paste this line and save the file:
Code: Select all
deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main

Then run this in Terminal:
Code: Select all
apt-get install '^liquorix-([^-]+-)?keyring.?'

You can copy/paste this but please note that the Paste command in terminal is Ctrl-Shift-V and not Ctrl-V.
You will now get the Liquorix kernel in the updates.

Thanks guys :D

I am now using kernal 2.6.38 by following nunil's instructions.

AlbertP,

I am new to Linux so I will look at Liqourix when I have a bit more experience
