Updating kernel in ubuntu
I'll be demonstrating on a Ubuntu 16.10 desktop, but this tool can be used on any machine (so long as it has a GUI) that runs Ubuntu or a Ubuntu-based distribution. Although the tool won't delete your old kernels, you could cause problems with your machine, should you install an incompatible or unstable kernel.
I highly recommend testing this in a virtual machine before attempting on your production machines.
Then, remove the newly installed Kernel using command: The following steps are tested in Ubuntu 17.04 server.
However, this guide should work other Ubuntu versions (older and newer versions), and Debian, Linux Mint as well.
This tool is UKUU and it does a fantastic job of making kernel upgrades simple.
UKUU offers the following features: I want to walk you through the process of installing and using UKUU, so you can experience the kernel you want on your Linux machines.
This release is the first LTS version that has support for 6 years.
You can receive Kernel updates, bug fixes and feature improvements for 6 years.
However, it might also work on other RPM distros such as RHEL, Fedora and Scientific Linux.
