Run your Ubuntu 32bit system better/faster with kernel 3.9!

I have compiled yet another 32bit Ubuntu kernel. This time kernel 3.9.0-0-exton equivalent to’s latest kernel 3.9, released 130429.

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

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.9 kernel


md5sum for the ZIP file, which is of 55,1 MB

Installation instructions
Open the zip-file with WinZip, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Go into the folder ubuntu-kernel-32bit-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_i386.deb \

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

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!

    Hi Sir,

    I was looking forward to testing this kernel on my eeepc with xubuntu 12.04 on it. Unfortunately the install fails.

    Hello I have a question I installed kernel 3.11 generic on debian and lately I 3.7 trunk and casually 3.11 generic I do not notice any difference. I’d like to know if I install your kernel 3.9 exton, this will make my debian faster?
