    New kernel installation.

    Hi,

    As we all know, all ubuntu 12.04.2 based distros ship with kernel 3.5 instead of 3.2, 12.04 and 12.04.1 were shipped with. I had installed Xubuntu 12.04 when it was first released and I am doing all the necessary updates up to now and everything gets updated except for the kernel. Since I must update it manually, what exactly is the correct way? Should I just select all three 3.5 kernel related packages (linux-image, linux-headers) and install them using Synaptic or do I have to do anything other than that please?

    Thank you.

    You don't have to do anything manually, you can upgrade your machine to a full 12.04.2 system by doing the following...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-quantal xserver-xorg-lts-quantal
    Be aware that some graphics hardware won't work using the closed-source drivers with the new xorg subsystem (specifically ATI 2/3/4xxx series cards) so if you are unsure you may want to only install the kernel package (linux-generic-lts-quantal).
