View Full Version : [ubuntu] kernel upgrade - howto?

January 9th, 2009, 10:37 PM
I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10. The kernel remained at 2.6.24-22 after the upgrade. This is causing all kinds of problems with my video card driver (nvidia) after the 8.10 patch I installed yesterday.

My life would really be a lot easier if I could upgrade the kernel to 2.6.27. Is there a HOWTO lying about somewhere?

I looked in the package manager, but didn't see much in the way of kernel upgrades, just the kernel headers.

Does upgrade went as it should? Check your installed release with this

lsb_release -a
