downloading and installing a different kernel


Howdy all.
I used to know how to do this but I seem to have lost my notes. How can I download a different kernel and install it?

Thanks @RandomTroll, but I think there was a simplified way for Bodhi. At least, I know I've done it and I'm pretty sure I didn't need to unTAR anything. Also, I'm thinking I might need to go back to 4.8.0-34-generic when I install 5 and I don't see that there.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get install ukuu

This is one the included utilities in my upcoming Uranium Ubuntu respin.

You can find a list of kernels in the repos with the command:

Code:
apt-cache search linux-image
You can also install synaptic to have a GUI to search.

If you want a kernel from an older Ubuntu release you can find them on their package search pretty easily: https://packages.ubuntu.com/

In my experience kernel packages are generally forward compatible.

Not sure why you are promoting random other Ubuntu respins here? Keep the thread on topic to reduce clutter please.

Thanks, Jeff.
When I find the kernel in the repos, is there anything special to install it?

sudo apt-get install x.xx.x-xx-generic ?

When I tried other kernels I used ukuu and it's a simple GUI, and keeps your old kernels bootable in GRUB. I'd suggest trying that for the easy solution.

Installing other kernels from the repos will keep your old kernels in GRUB also unless you expressly remove the older kernels.

When you install you generally want to make sure you install the package that starts with linux-image-extra to grab everything for a given kernel for most systems.
