Unhappy how to upgrade to new kernel in ubuntu


I'm currently running on Ubuntu 10.04 x32:
kernel 2.6.32-21-generic

I'm trying to upgrade the kernel to:
kernel-2.6.35.14-96

I'm not able to find necessary debian package for my Ubuntu.
Can somebody share the link or command to upgrade ?

Hello,

Lots of manuals on the Internet. The following turned up in a Google search in under a second (among others):
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/kernel-2-6...ntu-10-04.html

Kind regards,

Eric

No go...

It has upgraded to : 2.6.32-33-generic

Or
is this kernel : 2.6.35.14-96 not available for Ubuntu based systems.
I'm looking for the exact match : 2.6.35.14-96 , Coz i plan to install a deb package which is compatible with this kernel only..

Thanks....

you might have to build your own kernel from source

Hello,

I wonder, just like jdkaye, what package you plan to install that is only compatible with that specific version of the Linux kernel. I you run the following you'll get a list of the kernel images currently available in the repositories you have configured:
Code:
apt-cache search linux-image
Edit: At http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid-updates/allpackages you can see that the 2.6.35 kernel is available for Lucid with different minor version number (for example 30, 28, 25, 22, ...) depending on the type of kernel you want. So indicating the full correct version will install the desired kernel and dependencies. The one indicated you need (minor 14 does not seem to be available, the first one I can see when browsing is 22 as minor version for 2.6.35.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

You're welcome! Does that mean you found what you were looking for and were able to install a newer version of the kernel?

Kind regards,

Eric

Not exactly..

Currently i'm running on ubuntu x32 kernel version: 2.6.32-21-generic
To fix a bug in an application i need to install necessary package (module) , what i have is :
xyz_1.2.6.32-5-686_i386.deb
The installation of the module completes, however the necessary changes are not taking into affect.
As you said , there seems no ubuntu kernel version that would match the module package that in intend to install on.
