In ExTiX 11 64bit version 121219 and MeX Linux 64bit version 121219 I have replaced the original kernel 3.5-0-19-generic with “my special kernel” 3.7.0-7 exton. My kernel can now be downloaded and installed in your Ubuntu/Debian system.
Install kernel 3.7.0-7-exton in other Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of Ubuntu systems, incl. Mint. They can even be used in Debian Wheezy (upcoming Debian 7) and Debian Squeeze (Debian 6). If you want to use my kernel 3.7.0-7-exton for 64bit systems, you can download it from HERE. Install as described on my international blog below. (Change the filenames of course). Advantages of the newer kernel: Many if you have newer hardware, etc. I myself seem to notice that the system runs faster, both from the disc and from the hard drive. This is noticeable especially during startup and shutdown. (In any case, on my computers).
