    kernel update in 11.10 oneiric: Unable to locate package

    hi guys,

    I'd like to update the kernel from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ to get bet support for Sandy Bridge in 11.10 oneiric

    I tried this:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kernel-ppa/ppa
    output:

    Code:
    You are about to add the following PPA to your system:

    then:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.1.4-030104-generic_3.1.4-030104.201111281851_i386 linux-headers-3.1.4-030104-generic_3.1.4-030104.201111281851_i386 linux-headers-3.1.4-030104_3.1.4-030104.201111281851_all
    and I got:

    Code:

    so I tried:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.1.4_all linux-headers-3.1.4 linux-image-3.1.4
    and I got:

    You could try from the .deb.
    AMD A4-3400 w/ Radeon HD 6410D, 8 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1333Mhz, Kubuntu 14.04, SliTaz 4.0, Windows 8.1, Ubuntu 14.04 VM

    Yes, I thought about that option but I'd like to learn the correct procedure to update kernel using the PPA.

    anyone knows how?

    Hi there alphonso78, I may be missing something, but this doesn't look good for the PPA -packages removed

    So you can either use a .deb, or have a crack at compiling - have a look here

    I also would like the kernel to update automatically rather than having to download debs every update

    Indeed, you're right. The packages have been removed but if you look here (link) you can see they compile new kernels almost every day! v2.6.32.53.21-lucid has been compiled today.

    So what's the point of compiling the kernels and not giving a simple way to install them?

    Is not that I'm scared of running sudo dpkg -i on various .deb files, I just would like to understand why a PPA used to be available and it's not anymore...

    Compiling the kernel is something I will keep as the very last resort...

    ps. check this (link) for (possibly) good tips. I'll check tonight if it works. It actually suggests it's ok to install a "precise" (ubuntu 12.04) kernel on oneiric (ubuntu 11.10).

    Re: kernel update in 11.10 oneiric: Unable to locate package

    I rest my case, it's written here:

    To use the mainline kernel as-is you only need to download and install the *image*.deb package that corresponds to your architecture, however if you need to build any external modules you also need the correct *header*.deb and *source*.deb packages.
    So I guess download it's the only way. No automatic PPA.

    By the way, I guess the following note is quite important, but I'm not sure what effect it will have on my system:

    Do mainline kernel builds include Ubuntu specific drivers?
    By definition the mainline kernel builds are made from virgin unaltered mainline kernel sources and therefore do not, and should not, include any Ubuntu patches or drivers. There are also no binary drivers for these kernels

    question: in this PPA there are tons of packages. After I add the PPA should I update and then upgrade? Or should I install manually the three packages for kernel?

    Code:
    linux-headers-3.2.0-7_3.2.0-7.13_all.deb
    linux-headers-3.2.0-7-generic-pae_3.2.0-7.13_i386.deb
    linux-image-3.2.0-7-generic-pae_3.2.0-7.13_i386.deb
    If I upgrade, will I install just the new kernel or all the packages listed?

    I think you'll need to manually install them (and future versions). The PPA is meant to instal an additional kernel to the stock kernel and not interfere with it. It would be nice if the PPA used meta-packages to make upgrading easy like the regular kernel does, but it doesn't.
