Install the latest kernel (3.11) for Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit systems

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 3.11.0-7-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest kernel 3.11, released 130902.

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.11 kernel

Install kernel 3.11.0-7-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 3.11.0-7-exton for 64bit systems, you can download it from HERE.

md5sum
for ubuntu-kernel-3.11.0-7-exton.zip, which is of 57 MB.

Installation instructions
Open the zip-file with WinZip, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Go into the folder ubuntu-kernel-64bit-3.10.0-exton and run this command:
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.11.0-7_3.11.0-7.13_all.deb \
linux-headers-3.11.0-7-exton_3.11.0-7.13_amd64.deb \
linux-image-3.11.0-7-exton_3.11.0-7.13_amd64.deb


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

A small clarification

“My” kernel 3.11.0-7-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!

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.10.10!

SlackwareI have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.0 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX, Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.10.10-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.10.10 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20130829.

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.10 kernel

If you want to install my kernel in your Slackware 64bit system, do this:

1. Download  linux-kernel-3.10.10-x86_64-exton.zipmd5sum
2. Unpack it with unzip linux-kernel-3.10.10-x86_64-exton.zip
3. Install it with the command installpkg linux-kernel-3.10.10-x86_64-exton.txz
(The kernel is packed just like Slackware’s original kernels so that everything ends up in the right place)
3. If necessary, change your Grub Legacy/Grub 2 configuration
4. If you have an Nvidia graphics card in your computer, you may need to look over your files in /etc/modprobe.d before restarting the computer. That is remove the “blacklisting” of Nouveau’s kernel module in the appropriate files blacklist.conf and nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf. With “my” kernel functions the Nouveau “free” driver works just fine.

Restart your computer and enjoy!

“My” Ubuntu/Debian kernel 3.8.0-0-exton (3.8-rc3)

Today (130111) I have compiled yet another Ubuntu kernel for 64bit systems. This time kernel 3.8.0-0-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest kernel 3.8-rc3, released yesterday (130110).

Install kernel 3.8.0-0-exton in 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 3.8.0-0-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).

Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64bit system better/faster with a new kernel!

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.

What’s new in Linux 3.7?

A better Ubuntu kernel – 64bit

NEWS 120229: A new stable 3.2 kernel for ExTiX 9 Linux 64bit and other Ubuntu 64bit systems

I have compiled a new stable 3.2.7 kernel  for ExTiX 9 64bit.

A better kernel
Nothing is so good that it can not be improved (as the saying goes). This also applies to “my” compiled Ubuntu kernels. A disadvantage of my (former) Ubuntu kernels is that you can not install such packages as VirtualBox or Nvidia’s proprietary drivers, which require kernel sources at installation. I have now discovered a better way to compile the kernel, which includes absolutely all specific Ubuntu patches. The above mentioned problem is thus solved in kernel 3.2.0-17_amd64-exton (3.2.7). It is now possible to install VirtualBox and proprietary hardware drivers with only kernel-headers-3:20:17-exton installed. Ie full kernel sources are not needed.

A. Get the kernel linux-image-3.2.0-17-exton_3.2.0-17.27_amd64.deb
B. Get kernel-headers-exton linux-headers-3.2.0-17-exton_3.2.0-17.27_amd64.deb
C. Get kernel-headers-all linux-headers-3.2.0-17_3.2.0-17.27_all.deb

Install command: dpkg -i linux-headers-3.2.0-17-exton_3.2.0-17.27_amd64.deb  linux-headers-3.2.0-17_3.2.0-17.27_all.deb  linux-image-3.2.0-17-exton_3.2.0-17.27_amd64.deb

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

A small clarification
“My” kernel 3.2.0-17-exton is now (finally) compiled exactly the same way as all official Ubuntu kernels. That is, The Ubuntu Way. If not, the kernel would not function in an Ubuntu system.
