Run your Ubuntu 32bit system better/faster with the latest kernel!

I have compiled yet another 32bit Ubuntu kernel. This time kernel 3.8.0-17-exton equivalent to’s latest kernel 3.8.6, released 130405.

This kernel can be installed in all Ubuntu 32bit systems version 10.04 – 13.04 and Ubuntu derivatives such as Linux Mint 10 – 14, ExTiX 9 – 11, MeX and LFA. My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can even be used in Debian Wheezy (upcoming Debian 7) and Debian Squeeze (Debian 6).

What’s new in Linux 3.8?


md5sum for the ZIP file , which is of 54,1 MB

Installation instructions
Open the zip-file with WinZip, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Go into the folder ubuntukernel-32bit-3.8.0-17-exton and run this command:

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.8.0-17_3.8.0-17.27_all.deb \
linux-headers-3.8.0-17-exton_3.8.0-17.27_i386.deb \

: Run command sudo update-grub (if you use Grub 2)

A small clarification
“My” kernel 3.8.0-17-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.

Good luck!
