How to upgrade to a newer kernel?

Postby Milltach » Fri Jan 21, 2011 4:00 pm

Hi, i just installed LMDE x64 to see how its running.
I saw there is an old Kernel (2.6.32-5) - even Ubuntu got a newer one.... I tought a Rolling Release System is always trying to get the newest kernel?
How can i upgrade to a newer one? Or should i stay with this one, because if i install a new one my system get buggy?

How to install the linux-image-2.6.37-0.dmz.4-liquorix-686 Linux Kernel:
I think this is all I did.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install liquorix-archive-keyring
sudo install -y linux-image-2.6.37-0.dmz.4-liquorix-686
sudo install -y linux-headers-2.6.37-0.dmz.4-liquorix-686
sudo update-grub


Done.

Reboot and select the new kernel.
linux-headers-2.6.37-0.dmz.4-liquorix-686 is required for Virtualbox Clients.
If you use Virtualbox then install the headers and run

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Do you realize how hard it is for me to explain to people that I know you?

@Habitual: hi thx for the fast answer. Are you sure i should install the 686i Kernel, i have a LMDE x64... shouldnt i take an 64bit Kernel? Or doesnt matter?

Edit: ok i see now, i can only download an amd64 kernel - so everything is fine :)
