Update linux kernel to v4.18.7

September 9, 2018

I found this simple guide to update the linux kernel, as I’d tried UKUU with no success, as it couldn’t for some reason write to a temp folder

Article here: nixCraft: How to install the latest/stable version of Linux kernel on Ubuntu Linux using apt-get

Reference of mainline kernels to download from: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/

& here’s the code I used

download kernel debs


wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.18.7/linux-headers-4.18.7-041807_4.18.7-041807.201809090930_all.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.18.7/linux-headers-4.18.7-041807-generic_4.18.7-041807.201809090930_amd64.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.18.7/linux-modules-4.18.7-041807-generic_4.18.7-041807.201809090930_amd64.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.18.7/linux-image-unsigned-4.18.7-041807-generic_4.18.7-041807.201809090930_amd64.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.18.7/CHECKSUMS

checksum


sha256sum --ignore-missing -c CHECKSUMS

install deb files


sudo dpkg -i *.deb

reboot


sudo reboot

check new kernel installed


uname -mrs

Sweet, now you have the latest stable mainline kernel 🙂


I read today on a tweet that 4.18 was no longer secure so decided to update… hope this works!
Excited about reading the AMD graphic speed updates of 4.20, but I can hold off until release 🙂

4.19.5 update
