I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64bit systems. This time kernel 3.8.0-13-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest kernel 3.8.3, released 130314.
Install kernel 3.8.0-13-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Wheezy (upcoming Debian 7) and Debian Squeeze (Debian 6). If you want to use my kernel 3.8.0-13-exton for 64bit systems, you can download it from HERE.
md5sum for ubuntu-kernel-64bit-3.8.0-13-exton.zip, which is of 54,3 MB
Open the zip-file with WinZip, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Go into the folder ubuntu-kernel-64bit-3.8.0-13-exton and run this command:
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.8.0-13_3.8.0-13.23_all.deb \
Then: Run command sudo update-grub (if you use Grub2).
A small clarification
“My” kernel 3.8.0-13-exton is compiled exactly the same way as all official Ubuntu kernels. That is, The Ubuntu Way. If not, the kernel would not function in an Debian/Ubuntu system.
