Install the latest kernel (3.9) for Ubuntu/Debian 64bit systems

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64bit systems. This time kernel 3.9.0-0-exton, equivalent to’s latest kernel 3.9, released 130429.

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.9 kernel

Install kernel 3.9.0-0-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Wheezy (Debian 7) and Debian Squeeze (Debian 6). If you want to use my kernel 3.9.0-0-exton for 64bit systems, you can download it from HERE.

for, which is of 55,4 MB

Installation instructions
Open the zip-file with WinZip, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Go into the folder ubuntu-kernel-64bit-3.9.0-0-exton and run this command:
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.9.0-0_3.9.0-0.4_all.deb \
linux-headers-3.9.0-0-exton_3.9.0-0.4_amd64.deb \

: Run command sudo update-grub (if you use Grub2).

A small clarification

“My” kernel 3.9.0-0-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!

  1. what about a repository for the kernel releases? I don’t know if it’s possible but would be nice. Also a Git, so people could take a look in the changes you make and stuff.
    love the effort you put in all those releases

  2. I’m getting errors..sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.9.0-0_3.9.0-0.4_all.deb \
    linux-headers-3.9.0-0-exton_3.9.0-0.4_amd64.deb \

    1. Error messages?

      Try one command at the time: sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.9.0-0_3.9.0-0.4_all.deb
      sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.9.0-0-exton_3.9.0-0.4_amd64.deb
      sudo dpkg -i linux-image-3.9.0-0-exton_3.9.0-0.4_amd64.deb

  3. Doing this on Debian Wheezy gives me:
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-headers-3.9.0-0-exton:
    linux-headers-3.9.0-0-exton depends on libc6 (>= 2.14); however:
    Version of libc6:amd64 on system is 2.13-38.

    NAy help on this?

  4. nope doesnt work MR, it says that the 2.17 version will break the currently installed and only gives suggestion to remove almost everything installed in the system, so please keep away of that! either live without the lib6c or just stay with your standard 3.7 Kernel

  5. backport it from Jesse and you can have the kernel for debian just add the Jesse repo and update and install 3.9 then remark out the source in sources.list when you are through…

  6. ok I am intrigued by your works of art…
    I am a windows or rather cpm hehe… dos/ perl, pascal oldie.. started on species and amstrads lol
    and all of a sudden I am flitting with linux again. So can I ask a simple question.
    is it syslinux or grub4dos that works best for you.
    I am serious about this as for some reason instead of using apps I want to write them again
    a reply would be great thanks
