Ubuntu – How to install 3.16 kernel on Ubuntu 14.04


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade do not show the newest kernel.

How can I install 3.16 kernel on 14.04?

Best Answer

Now that 14.10 has been released, there is an easier and better way to get 3.16 on Ubuntu 14.04:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-utopic

This package will always depend on the latest 3.16 image available. (This method may not have been ready at the time of this article.)
