Need to know how to upgrade to the 2.6.24 kernel

Postby NightMyst3 on Sat Feb 23, 2008 9:46 pm

i have the kernelin the .bz2 format.

i REALLY need it. Really! It's the only viable way that seems to work with Alsa for my conexant sound card as it supports it natively.

Yes, yes I have followed all the articles and done all 3 alsa downloads and complies...but still to no avail.

Can anyone please tell me how to upgrade to that kernel since it supports the hda-intel natively?

thanks so much,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This is the easiest way.

Use caution and back up any important data first! I have used the manual method described in the How TO with good results.
